Obama Drops His Name Into the Other Presidential Biographies (Is there no limit to his narcissism?)

By  via Commentary Magazine

Many of President Obama’s fervent devotees are young enough not to have much memory of the political world before the arrival of The One. Coincidentally, Obama himself feels the same way—and the White House’s official website reflects that.

 

The Heritage Foundation’s Rory Cooper tweeted that Obama had casually dropped his own name into Ronald Reagan’s official biography on www.whitehouse.gov, claiming credit for taking up the mantle of Reagan’s tax reform advocacy with his “Buffett Rule” gimmick. My first thought was, he must be joking. But he wasn’t—it turns out Obama has added bullet points bragging about his own accomplishments to the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford). Here are a few examples:

  • On Feb. 22, 1924 Calvin Coolidge became the first president to make a public radio address to the American people. President Coolidge later helped create the Federal Radio Commission, which has now evolved to become the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). President Obama became the first president to hold virtual gatherings and town halls using Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, etc.
  • In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League, President Truman wrote that the government has “an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces.
  • President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare signed (sic) into law in 1965—providing millions of elderly healthcare stability. President Obama’s historic health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, strengthens Medicare, offers eligible seniors a range of preventive services with no cost-sharing, and provides discounts on drugs when in the coverage gap known as the “donut hole.”
  • In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.

I imagine Bill Clinton will be especially receptive to Obama’s habit of shoehorning himself into the limelight previously occupied by others. As you can see, the bullet points make clear that while each president has done something historic or notable, Obama is carrying forward every one of those accomplishments since Coolidge. No wonder he always seems so proud of himself.

Dictator Obama Issues New Threat to Supreme Court over ObamaCare

By Sher Zieve via Canada Free Press

In his latest display of his full USA federal government dictatorship over both the American people and the former co-branches of government, Dictator Obama is warning the Supreme Court to either rule in his favor or face severe consequences.

Fox News’ Martha McCallum advised Thursday that the Obama Administration has been quietly sending missives to the Supreme Court threatening that if it doesn’t rule in his favor on ObamaCare, Medicare will face disruption and “chaos.”  Therefore, if SCOTUS rules in favor of the US Constitution, Obama & Co will begin its campaign to either destroy Medicare or make those on it suffer greatly.   The Obama syndicate is said to be threatening to hold off Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals if SCOTUS does not comply with Obama’s demands and submit to him.

As an additional example of Obama’s illegal and (I believe) highly treasonous behaviors, on 1 May and 2 May Obama issued two additional unconstitutional and illegal Executive Orders.  The first E.O., issued 1 May 2012, makes the USA subject to “international regulations” as opposed to looking to and following the US Constitution.   Also, with this new E.O., the US FDA will now be able to be bypassed by International committees—thus, replacing the FDA with any international group which may be chosen.  In essence, Obama is quickly eliminating US Sovereignty and selling the USA to the international “community.”

The second E.O. issued in 2 days was signed by Obama on 2 May 2012.  This E.O. instructs the USA to bow to international regulations instead of the US Constitution and Businessweek reports:  “Obama’s order provides a framework to organize scattered efforts to promote international regulatory cooperation, the chamber’s top global regulatory official said today.

“Today’s executive order marks a paradigm shift for U.S. regulators by directing them to take the international implications of their work into account in a consistent and comprehensive way,” Sean Heather, vice president of the chamber’s Center for Global Regulatory Cooperation, said in an e-mailed statement.”  This also brings the USA closer to becoming a “North American Union” and—also—eliminating its sovereignty—in toto.

Suffice it to say, no one in Congress has issued even the proverbial “peep” over either of these illegal “orders.”  Do the American people really want to continue to live under this blatant tyranny?

The second question is “Will the Supreme Court of the United States of America bow to Obama and give up its co-equal status to the dictator as the US Congress has already done?”  If so,  perhaps its time for We-the-People to recruit the Honduran Supreme Court who, along with their military, ousted its then President Manuel Zelaya who had become a dictator.  Oppression under the Obama syndicate becomes worse each and every day, folks.  Will we ever choose to go back to the sunshine?

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?”—Revelation 13:4

Obama And His “Youth Vote” Could Face “Grandparents’ Revenge”

By via Western Journalism

With his support rapidly drying up among almost every group, Barack Obama has turned to the so- called “youth vote.” He has personally visited or sent a representative to 130 college campuses across the country since March 2011. His obvious plan is to use the same lies he told in 2008 to appeal to people who have no life experience and don’t know any better. “They believed it then, maybe they’ll believe it now” is the Obama campaign motto, but is it working? Not yet, and nothing on the horizon suggests it will.

In 2008, whatever Obama told the empty-headed college kids worked. As the quintessential political prostitute, Obama put on ANY dress his customers wanted him to wear. “Lower student loan rates than those evil Republicans want you to have? You bet!” “More free stuff from the government? Coming right up!” “I’m the one you’ve been waiting for, can’t you see that?” “Blah blah blah, hope and change blah blah blah, you know what THAT means don’t you?” They didn’t, but that made no difference because voting for a black man PROVED that their generation was better than their parents’ generation. They ate up Obama’s Hope and Change babble and marched like zombies to vote for a man whom they really had no information about. Obama won their vote 2 to 1.

Today, all of that is gone. A new Gallup survey holds devastating news for Obama and his party regarding the 18 to 29 year old vote: only 60% are registered to vote, and of that, only 56% report they are likely to vote in November. Since that’s 56% of 60%, Obama is getting just 35% of the youth vote. That fact renders the “youth vote” that still goes 2 to 1 for Obama meaningless at best.

At the other end of the age scale, 92% of those 65 and over are registered to vote, and 86% of them are “definitely” voting in November. When they do, they will be voting 52/40 for Mitt Romney.

Obama’s empty “Hope and Change” produced three miserable results: it kept college graduates out of work, it put their parents out of work, and it forced their grandparents back to work.

With 50% of recent college graduates out of work and Wal Marts staffed by people who either had to return to work or were never able to retire since Obama came to office, these numbers are likely to get worse for Obama and better for Romney.

Call this what you’d like, but “Grandparents’ revenge” sounds about right.

Girlfriends, Let’s Talk About How to Convert a Democrat

By Janine Turner via PJ Media

Think movie scene: a restaurant anywhere in America. A group of five female friends are sitting around talking — three are Democrats, two are Republicans. At a table with no salt shaker and a Michelle Obama-approved menu, the Democrats’ conversation starts like this:

Can you believe the Republicans are taking away our contraception?

This dialogue quickly deteriorates into a misinformed, Obama-fueled fiasco: the wicked “one percent,” the “fairness” of free health care, equal outcomes rather than equal opportunities, etc.

The Republican women look at each other with an unspoken, secret “OMG,” yet they do what conservatives do best: remain conservative. As the Democrat women ramble on about the inequality and wickedness of America — taking no heed that anyone else at the table could possibly disagree with them — the conservative women remain silent.

They do not enter the fray because they know the risks. They know that the Democrats, not able to defend their wiles with wisdom, will attack the Republican women’s character. They know that Democrats cannot have a reasonable conversation, and a brouhaha will ensue.

The Republican women, who feel intimidated, remain mute. They believe their inner fortitude is enough. But is it? No, it is not. The stakes are too high. The republic is vulnerable, our children’s futures in jeopardy.

It is now crucial for conservatives to roll up their sleeves and to join the debate. Isolating into the haven of friends who are of the same mind at home, in church, and even on talk radio is no longer an option. Preaching to the choir will not win our country back in 2012.

It’s time for Republicans to pronounce: Women are smarter than this.

How does one convert unyielding and uninformed liberals? With reason and knowledge. To enter into this battle, one must be armed, agile, sharp, and resolute.

Here are some tools. When the Democrats start ranting, use the GIRLFRIENDS acronym to forge through the storm.

G: Get Reasonable. Want to teach your children that laws don’t matter? Be a Democrat.

I: Informed on Phony Contraception Battle. Want your children to lose their religious freedom? Be a Democrat.

  • Republicans are not interested in taking away contraceptives.
  • The Republicans are protecting your religious freedom.
  • A dangerous precedent has been set — the government has successfully mandated that the Catholic Church go against their beliefs and cover contraceptives in their insurance policies.
  • What’s next? Mandating which religion you must follow?

            R: Republicans Are the Women’s Party. Want your daughter to be constrained by government? Be a Democrat.

  • Republicans supported the 19th Amendment, extending voting rights to America’s women. Democrats didn’t.
  • A Republican, Senator A. A. Sargent, introduced the 19th Amendment.
  • A Democrat-controlled U.S. Congress denied women their right to vote by refusing to pass the 19th Amendment. Four times.
  • A Republican-controlled U.S. Congress finally passed the 19th Amendment.
  • During the ratification process, eight of the nine states that did not ratify the amendment had Democrat-controlled state legislatures.

L: Legislative Liberty Is Lost. Want your child to live under tyranny? Be a Democrat.

  • The Democrats are bureaucrats. They are really the Bureaucratic Party.
  • Democrats do not think the people can govern, provide, or think on their own.
  • Democrats override the legislative process with unelected bureaucrats and “czars.”
  • Obama has appointed the most czars in U.S. history.
  • Democrats write 2,700-page bills that no one, not even the Supreme Court justices, can understand. That should stop.

F: Fuel and Energy Policies Are a Farce. Want your child’s transportation to be a horse? Be a Democrat.

  • The basic ability to fuel our cars and to receive consistent electricity is in jeopardy under Obama and the Democrats.
  • Obama refuses to harvest America’s great wealth of fossil fuel resources.
  • Drilling on federal lands is at an eight-year low.
  • We have enough oil, gas, and coal in our country to be self-sufficient.
  • The taxes paid to the government from these resources could pay off our debt within a generation.
  • Secretary of Energy Steven Chu stated that his goal is $8.00 per gallon gasoline that would pressure Americans to “go green.”
  • Would you let your kid drive the combustible Chevy Volt?
  • We should not put the cart before the horse, but with the Obama administration, you should get a horse.

R: Return Women to the Workforce. Want your daughter to live off the government? Be a Democrat.

 

  • Of all the jobs that have been lost during the Obama administration, 92% have been women’s jobs.
  • Women are suffering under the Obama administration.
  • The majority of single mothers are trapped in the mire of dependence on the government because the Obama economy has had the hardest impact on women.
  • Democrats depend on dependents.

I: Insolvency — Sinking in a Sea of Debt. Want your child to live in debt, hounded by creditors? Be a Democrat.

  • The Republicans are offering life vests.
  • The Democrats are drowning Americans in ideology.
  • America is broke. We are approaching 16 trillion dollars in debt.
  • We are beholden to foreign countries.
  • Our country could be taken over without a shot being fired.
  • Our credit rating has been downgraded twice under the Obama administration; this has never before happened even once: Standard and Poor’s did this in August 2011; Egan-Jones downgraded us in April 2012.
  • Democrats have not put forth a budget in 1,100 days. Republicans have.

E: Entitlement Society — “Give me Liberty and Gimme, Gimme!” Want your child to be dependent on other people’s money? Be a Democrat.

  • Patrick Henry, one of our great Founding Fathers, said: “Give me liberty or give me death!”
  • Now, Americans say: “Give me liberty and gimme, gimme.
  • Our children are being taught that the government owes them everything.
  • The Democrats want Americans to believe that everything is free.
  • Nothing is for free. The sacrifice is our personal freedom, skyrocketing debt, and our Republican form of government. Our voice.
  • Taxation will not and cannot curb the debt and deficit, which continually regenerates and escalates. Cutting the budget is a necessity.

N: National Security — We Are Vulnerable. Want to teach your child it’s okay to be bullied? Be a Democrat.

  • Debt is the biggest threat to our national security.
  • We are being bullied by foreign countries.
  • The entitlement programs and tax code must be restructured.
  • Obama and the Democrats are doing nothing. Nothing. They only propagandize.
  • Denial destroys. Refusing to acknowledge and take action to control and cut our debt and deficit is our biggest vulnerability.
  • China is invading our country through cyberspace, political correctness, and economic and military naiveté.

D: Darkness — Democrats Want Us to Be in the Dark. Want your child to sit in the dark? Be a Democrat.

  • We did not blow out our candles until we had electricity strung in our homes.
  • Obama is punishing and restricting our current American energy industry through the EPA in ways that are not feasible and not constitutional.
  • Government fails when it mandates the market. See Solyndra.
  • Our electricity is being compromised before alternatives are viable and accessible.
  • Obama and the Democrats want us to be awash in windmills.
  • What happens if the wind doesn’t blow?

S: Sick — Our Health Care Will Soon Be Hopeless. Want your child to be sick for a year? Be a Democrat.

  • ObamaCare ends the superiority of our health care.
  • Need an MRI? You will have to wait in line for it, and you may die while waiting.
  • Does your child need surgery? You may wait six months to a year.
  • Your parent is elderly and needs a knee replacement? A government panel will decide if his or her life is worth the expense.
  • Two years after ObamaCare was passed, no branch of government can decipher the 2,700-page bill.

So, men and women, get out and talk with your GIRLFRIENDS. We can convert Democrats to Reason — the Republican Party. But we have to enter the fray to do it.

We are smarter than the propaganda we are being sold. Times are serious. To win in 2012, we must be vocal.

A Black Man, The Progressive’s Perfect Trojan Horse

By Lloyd Marcus on March 25, 2010

As millions of my fellow Americans, I am outraged, devastated and extremely angry by the democrat’s unbelievable arrogance and disdain for We The People. Despite our screaming “no” from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our throats. Please forgive me for using the following crude saying, but it is very appropriate to describe what has happened. “Don’t urinate on me and tell me it’s raining.” Democrats say their mission is to give all Americans health care. The democrats are lying. Signing Obamacare into law against our will and the Constitution is tyranny and step one of their hideous goal of having as many Americans as possible dependent on government, thus controlling our lives and fulfilling Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America.

I keep asking myself. How did our government move so far from the normal procedures of getting things done? Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the Constitution to further his agenda? I think not.

Ironically, proving America is completely the opposite of the evil racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being, progressives used America’s goodness, guilt and sense of fair play against her. In their quest to destroy America as we know it, progressives borrowed a brilliant scheme from Greek mythology. They offered America a modern day Trojan Horse, a beautifully crafted golden shiny new black man as a presidential candidate. Democrat Joe Biden lorded Obama as the first clean and articulate African American candidate. Democrat Harry Reid said Obama only uses a black dialect when he wants.

White America relished the opportunity to vote for a black man naively believing they would never suffer the pain of being called racist again. Black Americans viewed casting their vote for Obama as the ultimate Affirmative Action for America’s sins of the past.

Then there were the entitlement loser voters who said, “I’m votin’ for the black dude who promises to take from those rich SOBs and give to me”.

Just as the deceived Trojans dragged the beautifully crafted Trojan Horse into Troy as a symbol of their victory, deceived Americans embraced the progressive’s young, handsome, articulate and so called moderate black presidential candidate as a symbol of their liberation from accusation of being a racist nation. Also like the Trojan Horse, Obama was filled with the enemy hiding inside.

Sunday, March 21, 2010, a secret door opened in Obama, the shiny golden black man. A raging army of democrats charged out. Without mercy, they began their vicious bloody slaughter of every value, freedom and institution we Americans hold dear; launching the end of America as we know it.

Wielding swords of votes reeking with the putrid odor of back door deals, the democrats landed a severe death blow to America and individual rights by passing Obamacare.

The mainstream liberal media has been relentlessly badgering the Tea Party movement with accusations of racism. Because I am a black tea party patriot, I am bombarded with interviewers asking me the same veiled question.“Why are you siding with these white racists against America’s first African American president?” I defend my fellow patriots who are white stating, “These patriots do not give a hoot about Obama’s skin color. They simply love their country and oppose his radical agenda. Obama’s race is not an issue”.

Recently, I have come to believe that perhaps I am wrong about Obama’s race not being an issue. In reality, Obama’s presidency has everything to do with racism, but not from the Tea Party movement. Progressives and Obama have exploited his race from the rookie senator’s virtually unchallenged presidential campaign to his unprecedented bullying of America into Obamacare. Obama’s race trumped all normal media scrutiny of him as a presidential candidate and most recently even the Constitution of the United States. Obamacare forces all Americans to purchase health care which is clearly unconstitutional.

No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of the American people and ignoring laws. President Clinton tried universal health care. Bush tried social security reform. The American people said “no” to both president’s proposals and it was the end of it. So how can Obama get away with giving the American people the finger? The answer. He is black.

The mainstream liberal media ontinues to portray all who oppose Obama in any way as racist. Despite a list of failed policies, overreaches into the private sector, violations of the Constitution and planned destructive legislation too numerous to mention in this article, many Americans are still fearful of criticizing our first black president. Incredible.

My fellow Americans, you must not continue to allow yourselves to be “played” and intimidated by Obama’s race or the historical context of his presidency. If we are to save America, the greatest nation on the planet, Obama’s progressive agenda must be stopped.

The tab for U.N.’s Rio summit: Trillions per year in taxes, transfers and price hikes

By  via Fox News

The upcoming United Nations environmental conference on sustainable development will consider  a breathtaking array of carbon taxes, transfers of trillions of dollars from wealthy countries to poor ones, and new spending programs to guarantee that populations around the world are protected from the effects of the very programs the world organization wants to implement, according to stunning U.N. documents examined  by Fox News.

The main goal of the much-touted, Rio + 20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, scheduled to be held in Brazil from June 20-23, and which Obama Administration officials have supported,  is to make dramatic and enormously expensive changes  in the way that the world does nearly everything—or, as one of the documents puts it, “a fundamental shift in the way we think and act.”

Among the proposals on how the “challenges can and must be addressed,” according to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon:

–More than $2.1 trillion a year in wealth transfers from rich countries to poorer ones, in the name of fostering “green infrastructure, ”  “climate adaptation” and other “green economy” measures.

–New carbon taxes for industrialized countries that could cost about $250 billion a year, or 0.6 percent of Gross Domestic Product, by 2020. Other environmental taxes are mentioned, but not specified.

–Further unspecified price hikes that extend beyond fossil fuels to anything derived from agriculture, fisheries, forestry, or other kinds of land and water use, all of which would be radically reorganized. These cost changes would “contribute to a more level playing field between established, ‘brown’ technologies and newer, greener ones.”

– Major global social spending programs, including a “social protection floor” and “social safety nets” for the world’s most vulnerable social groups  for reasons of “equity.”

–Even more social benefits for those displaced by the green economy revolution—including those put out of work in undesirable fossil fuel industries. The benefits, called “investments,”  would include “access to nutritious food, health services, education, training and retraining, and unemployment benefits.”

–A guarantee that if those sweeping benefits weren’t enough, more would be granted. As one of the U.N. documents puts it:  “Any adverse effects of changes in prices of goods and services vital to the welfare of vulnerable groups must be compensated for and new livelihood opportunities provided.”

Click here for the Executive Summary Report.

That  huge catalogue of taxes and spending is described optimistically as “targeted investments  in human and social capital on top of investments in natural capital and green physical capital,” and is accompanied by the claim that it will all, in the long run, more than pay for itself.

But the whopping green “investment” list  barely scratches the surface of the mammoth exercise in global social engineering that is envisaged in the U.N. documents, prepared by the Geneva-based United Nations Environmental Management Group (UNEMG), a consortium of 36 U.N. agencies, development banks  and environmental bureaucracies, in advance of the Rio session.

An earlier version of the report was presented  at a closed door session of the U.N.’s top bureaucrats during a Long Island retreat last October, where Rio was discussed as a “unique opportunity” to drive an expanding U.N. agenda for years ahead.

Click here for more on this story from Fox News.

Under the ungainly title of Working Towards a Balanced and Inclusive Green Economy, A United Nations System-Wide Perspective,  the  final version of the 204-page report is intended to “contribute” to preparations for the Rio + 20 summit, where one of the two themes is “the green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication. ”  (The other theme is “the institutional framework for sustainable development” –sometimes known as global environmental governance.)

But in fact, it also lays out new roles for private enterprise, national governments, and a bevy of socialist-style worker, trade and citizens’ organizations in creating a sweeping international social reorganization, all closely monitored by regulators and governments to maintain environmental “sustainability” and “human equity.”

“Transforming the global economy will require action locally (e.g., through land use planning), at the national level (e.g., through energy-use regulations) and at the international level (e.g., through technology diffusion),” the document says. It involves “profound changes in economic systems, in resource efficiency, in the composition of global demand, in production and consumption patterns and a major transformation in public policy-making.”  It will also require “a serious rethinking of lifestyles in developed countries.”

As the report puts it, even though “the bulk of green investments will come from the private sector,” the “role of the public sector… is indispensable for influencing the flow of private financing.”  It adds that the green economy model “recognizes the value of markets, but is not tied to markets as the sole or best solution to all problems.”

Among other countries, the report particularly lauds China as “a good example of combining investments and public policy incentives to encourage major advances in the development of cleaner technologies.”

Along those lines, it says, national governments need to reorganize themselves to ” collectively design fiscal and tax policies as well as policies on how to use the newly generated revenue”  from their levies. There,  “U.N. entities can help governments and others to find the most appropriate ways of phasing out harmful subsidies while combining that with the introduction of new incentive schemes to encourage positive steps forward.”

U.N. organizations can also “encourage the ratification of relevant international agreements, assist the Parties to implement and comply with related obligations…and build capacity, including that of legislators at national and sub-national levels to prepare and ensure compliance with regulations and standards.”

The report declares that “scaled-up and accelerated international cooperation” is required, with new coordination at “the international, sub-regional, and regional levels.”  Stronger regulation is needed, and “to avoid the proliferation of national regulations and standards, the use of relevant international standards is essential” — an area where the U.N. can be very helpful, the report indicates.

The U.N. is also ready to supply new kinds of statistics to bolster and measure the changes that the organization foresees—including indicators that do away with old notions of economic growth and progress and replace them with new statistics. One example: “the U.N. System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA), which will become an internationally agreed statistical framework in 2012.” 

These changes, the authors reassure readers, will  only be done in line with the “domestic development agendas” of the countries involved.

“A green economy is not a one-size-fits-all path towards sustainable development,” an executive summary of the report declares.   Instead it is a “dynamic policy toolbox” for local decision-makers, who can decide to use it optionally.

But even so, the  tools are intended for only one final aim. And they have the full endorsement  of U.N. Secretary General Ban, who declares in a forward to the document that “only such integrated approach will lay lasting foundations for peace and sustainable development,” and calls the upcoming Rio conclave a “generational opportunity” to act.

Individual Mandates, Freddy the Freeloader, and Health Care

By Frank  Hill via Family Security Matters

Rick Santorum has been beating Mitt Romney over the head with the proverbial cane over his support for Romney Care in the state of Massachusetts during his term as Governor.

The main culprit?  ‘Romney’s support of ‘individual mandates‘ for everyone to be included in the system. What is an ‘individual mandate’ anyway? An individual mandate is a requirement passed by government that requires you as the citizen of that governing state or nation to ‘buy’ something just because you live in that state or nation.  It is the quintessential issue over what is, or is not, a dispersed, smaller government in the original Federalism scheme where most decisions are pushed down to the lowest possible entity such as the city council or state legislature.  Ronald Reagan ran on the platform of ‘New Federalism’, for example, extolling the Jeffersonian virtues of ‘local governments making local decisions, not Washington.’ Passing ‘individual mandates’ at the federal level is a very hard thing to do.  The Founders wanted to make it difficult, and they did. The federal income tax of Civil War days was found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 1895 because it was an ‘individual mandate’ in the form of a direct tax and not apportioned by the state population as dictated in the Constitution.  Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 says:            ‘Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers.’ People at the beginning of our Republic were fearful of the direct tax mechanism because it reminded them so much of the capricious nature of the King of England, George III.    Excise taxes could be avoided; you just do without the items to be taxed.

Direct taxes could not be avoided. Ever. But with the passage of the 16th Amendment in 1913, all those concerns about ‘capricious’ taxation by a governing authority were set aside by our grandparents and great-grandparents and we have never had any problems with an overly-ambitious federal government taxing authority ever since.  (in your dreams, maybe) Aside from that, the next direct individual mandate from the federal, nationwide level to rear its ugly head didn’t happen until the passage of the so-called Obama Care in 2010.  That is right.  2 times in over 223 years, the US government has passed a serious ‘individual mandate’ to ‘force’ people to do something like pay taxes directly to Washington, not based on the apportionment clause. The first was rectified by the passage of the 16th Amendment through the constitutional amendment process. Perhaps that means that Obama Care will need a constitutional amendment as well to be, well, ‘constitutional’. But the states, as in Massachusetts where Governor Romney served as chief executive, they are not beholding to the same restrictions on ‘individual mandates’ as the federal government supposedly has been until Obama Care was passed.  You have ‘car insurance’, don’t you?  Well, that is an ‘individual mandate’ at the state level that says: ‘If you want to own and operate a car and get a driver’s license within the borders of this state, you have got to buy car insurance from Geico or that annoying ‘Flo’ from Progressive or else, you can not own and operate a vehicle here’. We are sure there are other examples.  We just don’t have them handy this morning. States can do that sorta thing.  The federal government can’t.  Supposedly.  Unless you are in the Obama Administration or were in Nancy Pelosi’s office when she famously said: ‘We have to pass the bill to see what is in it’ as if it was some sort of jack-in-the-box from which she didn’t even know what would pop out when cranked. Back in the early 1990′s, when we were still on Capitol Hill, former Congressman Alex McMillan was a key player on health care reform on the House Health Subcommittee, the Budget Committee and the Leader’s Task Force on Health Care Reform.  Mainly because he understood the basic differences between Medicare and Medicaid, and then some, along with others such as Bill Gradison of Ohio, David Hobson of Ohio and John Kasich of Ohio.  (How come so many Ohioans knew what they were doing on health care?) They even met with First Lady Hillary Clinton and her Hillary Care team many times, one time most famously in the backyard of now-Ohio Governor John Kasich for hot dogs, hamburgers…and plenty of beer.  Now that was some kinda cookout! Our point in bringing all this up is that we can not remember one single Republican back then opposing any form of ‘individual mandates’.  Why?

Because Republicans were more concerned about the ‘free rider’ issue or the ‘Freddy The Freeloader’ case where people don’t pay for their own health insurance but show up at the hospital emergency room with Stage 4 cancer and then the taxpayer and others who do have insurance wind up paying for that person who has never paid for their health care insurance.  Just like what hapens today, as a matter of fact. And they were mostly the young, healthy people we were most concerned about.  You know, the strong healthy young strapping male of 25 years of age all full of vim and vigor who think they are immortal and invincible so they would never buy health insurance if not mandated to do so and somehow they get into a car wreck sadly and then spends 10 years on life support, all supported by someone else. Here’s our deal: ‘Why not start all over and find a way to help every man, woman and child buy catastrophic health insurance coverage with the existing resources we have today in Medicare, Medicaid, VA, federal military health care and tax expenditures?’ ‘Cat Coverage’ we could call it and it is far, far, far less expensive on a per person basis than the current system that pays every billing for a hangnail and then assumes you are committing attempted fraud if you file for it. Cover everyone against the truly disastrous financial outcomes from cancer, stroke, car wrecks and gun shootings and then figure out private sector solutions to covering the other costs during the year. The percentage of people every year who have such catastrophic bills are tiny in comparison to the general population which is predominantly healthy each year for the most part. That is the way to go.  Do it such that the individual mandates happen at the state level, where states have the flexibility to do such things, not at the federal level where it becomes ‘constitutionally problematic’ to say the least.

He was a budget associate on the House Budget Committee for 4 years and worked on the 1994 Commission on Entitlement and Tax Reform. He now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina where he does some consulting and lots of worrying about federal spending issues.

Since the individual mandate is unconstitutional and is the basis for Obamacare – why not start all over?  That makes more sense than adding another bureaucratic nightmare to our already bloated and inefficient government! – Kasey

 

Americans Are Better Than Who Obama Thinks We Are

By Lloyd Marcus via Tea Party Nation

Along with their ever-present accusation that anyone who criticizes or disagrees with America’s first black president is a racist, class envy is the centerpiece of Obama’s re-election campaign.

It is extremely disheartening that the president of the United States believes he can win the votes of a majority of Americans by exploiting the sin of covetousness and hatred for the rich. In every speech, Obama claims that the rich are not paying their fair share. Please excuse my frankness, but Obama is lying.

Here are the facts.

Half the country — yes, I said half — do not pay taxes at all. Zero! The majority of federal income taxes (70%) are paid by the top 10 percent of income-earners. http://bit.ly/pgh5Wh As for Obama’s claim that we can solve America’s financial problems by forcing the rich to pay more, it is despicable, manipulative, and hate-inspiring nonsense. There are only 8,000 Americans who earn over 10 million dollars per year. If Obama confiscated all their money, it would finance our government for only 24 days. Then what?

What group of Americans will Obama attack next by trashing and demonizing them to gain public approval to confiscate everything for which they have worked hard, suffered, sacrificed and risked all for “government” redistribution?

Our national debt has tripled since Obama has been in office. Now, I know that that does not mean a lot to most Americans. Well, allow me to put it in perspective. Every minute, we spend 3 million dollars that we do not have, borrowing most of it from China. Every minute! Our debt is bankrupting the future and enslaving our great-great-great-grandkids.

So, you can understand why I find Obama’s rants about the rich not paying enough and how people will die unless Republicans raise the debt ceiling so disingenuous and unsupportable.

But there is a much greater issue at hand. Who does this man (Obama) think, we, the American people, are? The Obama administration and his media minions are trying to convince us that the entitlement-minded OWS lowlifes represent “mainstream Americans.” They are lying.

I represent mainstream Americans. I began working when I was about ten years old. I had a paper route and worked pulling copper out of old motors for my neighbor across the street, Mr. Buddy-Roy, in his backyard. At 15, my dad got me a work permit, and I acquired my first real job during the summer at Park Sign Co. in Baltimore. There I learned how to silk-screen signs.

Interesting sidebar: experience prompted Berry, the owner of Park Sign, to always get his money upfront for political signs, because if the candidate did not win the race, Berry would not get paid.

Back to my point. Like me, most Americans do not believe they are entitled to the fruits of a fellow American’s labor. And yet, this is who Obama thinks we are and desires us to be.

We all remember our classmates who smoked dope, cut classes, and dropped out versus the kids who studied, worked hard, and became doctors. According to Obama, in his “community organizer” way of thinking, the Democratic party, and the Occupiers, the kid who became a doctor is a selfish, greedy rich person who achieved his success on the backs of the poor dope-smoking dropouts.

Please do not think I am saying everyone who is poor smokes dope. Reasonable people get my point.

Obama and company have launched a war on achievement, portraying the highly successful as selfish villains and everyone else as lowly peasant-saints who are suffering because the rich are hogging it all. Clearly, Obama is exploiting man’s susceptibility to the sin of covetousness. And to all you Christians who buy into Obama’s “fairness” garbage, shame on you. Jesus was not a socialist.

When Judas scolded Mary for pouring her expensive ointment on Jesus’ feet rather than selling it and giving the money to the poor, Jesus scolded Judas, saying, “The poor you will have with you always.” In essence, Jesus was saying there will always be those who smoke dope, cut classes, and drop out of school. Liberals’ relentless efforts to legislate equal outcomes never work. For one thing, humans are diverse in their desires.

The Obama and company vision for America is incompatible with what has made us great. Do we really want to become a nation where government dictates and caps wealth, which they redistribute equally? Heck no!

Freedom to be all one can be is the magic ingredient which has made us the most extraordinarily successful nation on the planet. America is a guy laboring in his basement to build a better mousetrap in an effort to improve the fortunes of his family and himself. Great wealth is his reward for providing rodent relief to millions. If the Obama administration confiscates huge chunks of the successful mousetrap-maker’s profits, what incentive is there for him to invest more time, funds, blood, sweat, and tears to improve his product?

It is extremely depressing and sad to think of our great country becoming as Obama sees us — a nation of entitlement-minded losers, all dependent and helpless without government. As I stated, that is not who we are as a people. We are Americans!

Incredibly, we have a leftist president who simply does not get it. We must vote Obama out in November 2012.
