A Step in the Right Direction

A Change We REALLY Need
Under the Obama administration we have seen big government grow by leaps and bounds. Ironic isn't it? Day-to-day Americans face the harsh realities of Obama's economic policies while his newly created government agencies flourish with pay raises and new employee job hires. He goes on continuous vacations while we look for jobs.

It's also ironic that no Federal employee faces the harsh reality of being pink-slipped. Why is this? The private sector faces joblessness outlooks, while the people that WE employ are getting hired in record numbers with higher wages than we receive. They get almost double what we get!! HUH?

This is illogical. They should be experiencing the same harsh realities as the private sector. God only knows how many millions of dollars we could save the taxpayers if ALL Federal employees took a 10 to 15% pay cut. Or better yet, how about seeing them face a staff reduction of 10 to 12 %?

We could save a fortune! Granted, it wouldn't eliminate the insane deficit that Congress and the President has given us in the last 19 months. However, it would show Americans that their representatives are doing something positive to remedy the situation and that they think that they are no better than us.

Look instead at their actions. Nancy Pelosi just passed legislation that cost $26 TRILLION more borrowed dollars to bailout unions! What's that nonsense all about? The stupidity continues unabated.

We know one thing for sure. We REALLY do need CHANGE in Washington. It's going to start in just over two months. It's called the November elections.

Scared of the Economy?

Are you one of those pesky Americans who don't believe the President when he tell you that the Stimulus worked and that the economy is getting better every day? Shame on you. Be careful not to voice you opinion too loudly because Nancy Pelosi will want to investigate you and your funding sources. (She actually said that). Anyone with a different oppinion should be investigated. Nice!

Joe Biden, on the other hand,referred to the Tea Party as the "Republican Tea Party." Wow, that shows how in touch he is with REALITY!

Meanwhile Obama and his family are guess what? Yep, ON VACATION AGAIN!! This time they HAD to close the beaches - not so they could go swimming (like in Spain), but because the beaches contain fecal material. (It's not clear if that happened before or after their arrival.) It sucks to be on THAT vacation! Oh well, they can make it up in a couple of weeks when they go on their NEXT family vacation -wherever that will be.

So are you getting tired of this BS yet? Tired of being told how great the recovery is? Tired of being told that the economy is doing great (while jobs are disappearing)? Tired of being unemployed? Tired of the lies and false promises coming form this radical administration?

Time To React
If you are fed-up with all the crap that we have been dealt, then do something! Don't just sit and worry, or worse, complain. Get out and vote. Vote-out the incumbents - ALL of them. Clean the House and Senate. Literally, clean-out the corruption and lack of representation. Vote for someone who will STOP SPENDING and really cut-back to lower the deficits.

Guest Article - Our National Security

Time to Be Serious about National Security

By Thomas Sowell - a senior fellow and author at the Hoover Institution.

"This administration’s commitment to the national security of the United States is open to serious question.

One of the few campaign promises that Barack Obama has kept is this: “We are going to change the United States of America!

As in many other cases, those who were thrilled by the thought of “change” seldom seemed to consider whether it would be a change for the better or for the worse. True believers in the Obama cult assumed that it had to be a change for the better.

Now it is slowly dawning on more people that it is a change for the worse — runaway government spending, under the banners of “stimulus” and “jobs,” is not stimulating anything except political pay-offs to special interests. As for jobs, the percentage of the population with jobs keeps on declining, even as the administration points to all the jobs it is creating.

It is of course not pointing to all the other jobs that it is destroying, whether by taking money out of the private sector or by loading so many mandates on employers that labor is made artificially too expensive for many employers to do much hiring.

But the most dangerous and most lasting damage that this administration has done to this nation has been in the international jungle, where it is alienating our longtime allies, dismantling our credibility by reneging on our commitments to putting up a missile shield in Eastern Europe, and — above all — doing nothing meaningful to stop the leading terror-sponsoring nation in the world, Iran, from getting nuclear weapons.

We could deter the Soviet Union with our own nuclear weapons, but no one can deter suicidal fanatics, whether they are international terrorists of the sort that caused 9/11 or the kind in charge of the government of Iran, who have long been supplying international networks of suicidal fanatics.

Threatening to launch nuclear retaliation against the people of Iran will not deter them. They have already shown how little they care about the people of Iran and how much they care about their fanatical beliefs and hate-filled agendas.

How much does our own administration in Washington care about the American people and their national security? This is not a question you would usually have to ask about an administration of either party. But this is not like any other administration, and Barack Obama is unlike any other president of the United States in having come from a background of decades of associations and alliances with people who resent this country and its people.

Against that background, the Obama administration’s undermining of our longstanding alliances with Britain and Israel, among others, while seeking to reach accommodations with nations hostile to this country, raises painful questions and even more painful possibilities for the future.

Gratuitous affronts to both Britain and Israel began early in the Obama administration, including a clear downgrading of state visits from their national leaders. These affronts were pitched at a level unlikely to be noticed by the general public but unmistakable to anyone familiar with international relations, including both our allies and our enemies. But most of the pro-Obama media said little to alert the public.

It is not only in our foreign relations that the administration’s commitment to the national security of the United States is open to serious question. Domestically, as well, the same serious and painful questions arise.

After spending hundreds of billions of dollars on political pork-barrel projects from coast to coast — some frivolous beyond belief — its only major cut in federal spending has been its move to cut $100 billion from the Defense Department’s budget.

If there was ever a time when we needed a larger standing army, as distinguished from relying on National Guard troops, who are taken suddenly from civilian life and sent on multiple tours of combat duty, this is that time. We need a bigger and constantly modernizing military, not a bargain-basement military, trimmed down to leave more money for pork-barrel spending.

Sometimes small things can give you a better clue than large things. A recent editorial in Investor’s Business Daily pointed out that hundreds of captured illegal aliens from terrorist-sponsoring nations have been released on their own recognizance withinthe United States. Are these the actions of an administration that is serious about the national security of the American people?"

We Want it Both Ways

Net Neutrality is Bad for US
There is a top (George Soros) funded special interest group called "Free Press" who has been a strong lobbyist for the passage of net neutrality. Recall that the Federal government has been trying to take over control of the Internet ANYWAY they can. This has displayed itself by this act as well as Liebermans Cyber Security law which allows Obama to shut-down the Internet for up to 4 months.

It seems that when the strong lobbying group Free Speech had great difficulty in disclosing that it had had several unreported meetings with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

This is ironic because Free Press has been quite vocal in requiring all opponents of New Neutrality to obey federal legislation that mandates the disclosure of ANY lobbying efforts directed at federal employees with regard to the formulation of federal rules and regulations.

In fact, Free Press fudged their information so that they could hide the reality that they were in fact violating the Federal laws! Soros funds are actively paying the Free Press to lobby these groups! Nice going Free Press!!

Net Neutrality is bad because it will control Internet content. Are you surprised that George Soros is funding this objective? He is Obama's mentor for Obama's "Transformation of America." Or more like "AMERIKA."

Bye Bye 1st Amendment
Like we have said before, always watch both hands of Obama. This government is actively trying to regulate YOUR free speech. He either gets the FCC to attempt to illegally "regulate" the Internet or gets legislative support to do the same. Keep a vigilant watch on this issue. It will never go away as long as Obama in in the White House.

Gallop Poll just reported that the "Oinited One's" ratings have dropped to a new all-time low of 44%. Are you surprised?

Any Wonder?

On Friday last week, at a Muslim dinner, he endorsed full support to build a mosque at the Ground Zero sacred sight. Apparently after seeing the public's reaction to his lack of sensitivity (as well as no maturity or leadership too), he realized that he went too far by this endorsement. The next day he tried to pull-back by contradicting himself and denying that he strongly supported the mosque initiative. You can't have it both ways. This is a typical politician! Tell a specific audience what they want to hear - not what you REALLY believe.

Who's side is the President REALLY on? Does he even care about the families of the 911 attacks? We doubt it by HIS actions and words. Why is he so insensitive? It's not just this issue. It's any issue regarding terrorists. He tries to protect them. This is totally un-American.

Well Americans are getting quite fed-up with this BS and his lack of empathy for those millions of Americans who are still unemployed. He and Michelle always seem to be on vacation somewhere at the taxpayer's expense. It must be nice to be able to take Air Force One to go anywhere you damn please at a moments notice during a serious depression. They are STILL planning another vacation this month at Martha's Vinyard!!

It has become obvious to most taxpayers that the Stimulus was a FAILURE and did NOT deliver as promised. The ones who benefitted were NOT individuals who need jobs. The fact is that we have lost millions of jobs since his Stimulus went into effect - quite the contrary to what he promised.

It is also clear that the economy is NOT getting better under HIS policies in spite of the spin the White House puts on it. Does he even care about this or is the "Transformation of America" going just as expected? Cloward and Piven would be totally happy at this point because he's using their strategy to bring about change. So are the Progressives. Look at his policies and actions. Have they really made things better? Are you better off after the Stimulus? The Progressive agenda is destroying this country, piece by piece. After his time in office, does this still look like the America you once knew?

How long before ALL Americans who love this country will wake up and realize what is at stake? Too many are ignoring it just trying to survive these difficult times. Well if you think this is bad, just wait until your freedoms are all gone and there is no more free speech because it offends too many people.

We have taken our freedom for granted for too long. It is time to stand up and defend it. You won't escape by hiding any longer. There is a rally in Washington, DC on August 28. BE THERE and show your support!

Guest Article - Read it with Disgust

Putting Government First
by Patrick J. Buchanan - Political commentator.

"Where a man's purse is, there his heart will be also.

If you would know where the heart of the Obama party is today, consider. In the dog days of August, with temperatures in D.C. rising above 100, Nancy Pelosi called the House back to Washington to enact legislation that could not wait until September.

Purpose: Vote $26 billion to prevent layoffs of state, municipal and county employees whose own governments had decided they had to be let go if they were to meet their constitutional duty to balance their books.

Workers their own governments thought expendable, Congress decided were so essential, it borrowed another 26 thousand million dollars from China to keep them on state and local payrolls.

A nation whose national debt is approaching the size of its gross national product, that goes abroad to borrow money to keep non-essential workers on government payroll is a nation on the way down and out.

And anyone who thinks this Obama party is ever going to cull the armies of tens of millions of government workers or scores of millions of government beneficiaries to put America's house in order is deluding himself.

As long as this Congress and White House remain in power, a U.S. default on its national debt is inevitable. The only question is when.

Nor is this the first time the Obama administration has rushed to save workers whom their own state, city and county governments were prepared to let go. Among the reasons the $800 billion stimulus failed is that so little of it was directed to firing up the locomotive of the economy, the private sector, and so much of it was spent to ensure that government workers did not have to share in the national sacrifice.

Why Pelosi & Co felt compelled to return to D.C., to ensure that state and local government payrolls were not pared, is not hard to understand.

Which party does the American Federation of Teachers; the National Education Association; and the American Federation of State, Municipal and County Employees usually contribute to, work for, vote for? At which of the two party conventions are teachers and government employees hugely over-represented?

Consider, too, the states deepest in debt and facing the largest cuts in employee ranks, pay and benefits: California, Illinois, New York.

In these states, public employees earn at least $10,000 per year more in pay and benefits than the average America worker, who is bailing them out.

Hence, we have a situation where private sector workers in Middle America are being taxed, their children being driven ever deeper into debt to China, so government employees who have greater job security than they do, and earn more in pay and benefits than they will ever earn, can stay in Fat City.

And folks wonder why so many Americans detest government.

In the same week Congress came back to prevent AFSCME from taking a haircut, the Wall Street Journal reported that, in 2009, only three of 52 metro areas with over 1 million in population saw "net earnings and the broader measure of personal income both rise."

Are you surprised to learn Washington, D.C., was among the three?

That same day, USA Today had a startling report on how, during the last decade, U.S. Government workers, like Wall Street bankers, left their fellow Americans in the dust.

Federal workers have been awarded bigger average pay and benefit increases than private employees for nine years in a row. The compensation gap between federal and private workers has doubled in the past decade.

"Federal civil servants earned average pay and benefits of $123,049 in 2009 while private workers made $61,051 in total compensation. ... The Federal compensation advantage has grown from $30,415 in 2000 to $61,998 last year."

Remarkable. U.S. government workers, who enjoy the greatest job security of any Americans, now earn twice as much in pay and benefits as the average American. This is not the D.C. some of us grew up in.

Nor is this all Obama's doing. For most of the fat years of the federal work force came while Washington was being run by a Congress of Big-Government Conservatives and a White House of Bush-Cheney Republicans.

No wonder the tea party is targeting both parties.

Nevertheless, it is impossible to believe that the Obamaites, who intervened twice and massively with bailouts to prevent minor layoffs of local and state government employees, have the stomach to do the major surgery needed to cut the federal monolith down to size.

For the vast majority of the tens of millions of government workers vote Democratic, as do the vast majority of the scores of millions of beneficiaries of federal, state and local programs.

What Pelosi & Co. were saying with that $26 billion bailout this week is, "We are going to protect our own."

Which is why either Obama, Pelosi, Reid & Co. go, or we are gone."

Obama's Indefensible Support

No Compassion
Doesn't it make you wonder? The President of the United States would rather support a minority of Muslims than to defend and protect the families and memories of the deceased victims of the 911 Terrorist attacks. Does this make any sense to Americans at all?

On Friday at a White House dinner celebrating Ramadan (a Muslim religious holiday), Obama stated in defense of building the New York City Mosque:

"as a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country"

What Obama is missing is the fact that there are over 100 mosques in New York City and that this is NOT an issue about freedom of religion. Even peace-seeking Muslims have denounced this as an unnecessary provocation to provoke and insult Americans who lost friends and relatives in the 911 attacks.

Once again OUR President has ignored the voice of the people he represents - especially the people who live and work in NYC! He is the GREAT DIVIDER - not a unifier!! His lack of sensitivity is unforgivable.

Not only is Ground Zero and the vicinity a scared and hallow place, but it should not become a place to glorify the Muslim religion. It is a burial ground - just like the sunken battleship Arizona at Pearl Harbor.

It's becoming apparent that Obama cares more for Muslims than he does for his "fellow" Americans. We obviously did not know who this man really was when we elected him! What a disappointment...
