american-pie-by-don-mcleanBye, Bye Miss American Pie!  So many of my conservative friends tell me that January 20th2009 is the day “the music” (democracy) died. Two words;  not true!  The truth is there are more reasons now to be excited about America’s future than in any other time in my lifetime!   You may be thinking to yourself, “come on TJ how can you say that?”

Sure, I’ll agree America is way off corse.  Barrack Obama with honorable mention support from the George Bush  didn’t drive the Chevy to the levee.  Forget about the levee,  our politicians(them good old boys whom I’m convinced are drinkin’ some serious  whisky and rye), are driving America off a cliff!  And yes, Februarymade me shiver with every paper they (bill) delivered.  There was bad news on the doorstep and I think we all thought we couldn’t take one more step!   But, there are some encouraging things happening that we need to take stock  of!

1.) I knew if I had my chance that I could make those people dance:  TEA party patriots are organizing at local and state levels and continue to wake up other Americans every day.

2.) Helter Skelter in a summer swelter:   House Reps and members of Congress on summer break currently have no place to hide!  Have you listened to the blow-back that they are getting from constituents on talk radio or seen the you tube videos? I have never seen so many politicians put into a panic!  Rep: Tim Bishop of New York has canceled all town meeting appearances.  Arlen Spector and Kathlene Sebeilius were asked some very simple questions by angry Taxpayers in Philadelphia!   They offered no answers and were booed off the stage!  Of corse, they did boo Santa Claus at a ballgame in Philadelphia in 1968 but I digress!

3.) The players tried for a forward pass, with the jester on the sidelines in a cast:  The healthcare debate has badly damaged Barack Obama and taken virtually all of his political capitol.

4.) I met a girl who sang the blues and I asked her for some happy news,
but she just smiled and turned away:
  Sarah Palin stepping down as the Governor of Alaska has made her even more popular with Americans who want partisan politics to end.  There’s hope of a  a big announcement and some happy news  for Sarah and Conservatives in the near future!

5.) They took the last train (plain) for the coast, The Day” the music” (democracy) died:Speaker, Nancy Pelosi and Senator, Barbara  Boxer are going on break to find that the number and size of their liberal minions has been drastically reduced in blue state, California!


Policy Trek: The Wrath of Faux Outrage?

wormhole-enterpriseI think the country has been sucked into a giant wormhole!  Yes its the only explanation for what is currently going on!  It’s like a bad episode of Star Trek. (of coarse Trekkers would argue that there is no such animal)

How else can you explain the following:  Every single poll of the American people suggests  that they don’t want socialized health care.  There are rallies in the streets, in front of politicians offices, houses and town meetings that have spiraled quickly out of control.  Yet the Progressive Liberal Democrats lead by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid suggest that its all fake outrage.  The media either largely downplays the protesters or does not cover them at all and the politico’s are actually calling constituents angry mobs organized by the insurance companies or Fox News or the GOP.  Funny it’s the same tactic they used with the TEA parties.

The Quinnipiac Poll found that 39% approve of Obamacare and 52% disapprove.  That’s a 17% swing from the Quinnipiac Poll released a month ago when 46% approved and 42% disapproved.  That’s because the more Americans know about this program, the less they like President Obama’s plans to take over the health insurance industry and therefore, the medical care of 300 million Americans.

Yep…I’m no scientist, but it must be a wormhole! something is out of whack with the space time continuem!  Do they really think we are this stupid?  Do they really think they are going to get away with this?  What they don’t understand is that most conservatives are pissed off at both the Democrats and the Republicans.  Conservatives are mad and a part of the protests, but the maddest of all constituents are those whom would classify themselves independent.

If I wasn’t so hacked off about the fact that these people are trying to steal our country out from right under our feet, I’d laugh.  Have you seen the  Acorn folks in the nice matching organized t-shirts with custom professionally printed banners and signs.  Now thats what I call organized.  The T-shirts the signs they all cost money.  Have you seen the poeple protesting healthcare…no fancy t-shirts….I wonder who funded those home made signs!

The very people who brought us the Wes Boyd-funded Move On, the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America, and the union-funded ACORN comes complaints that the Tea Party people and the health care people are “AstroTurf” and not a grassroots movement.  These politicians must only understand  Klingon!  Because they are not hearing the people they work for.

Voters across the country are taking their phasers off stun and going for the kill!  Scotty, warp vector 9 to the 2010 elections because not even the deflector shields will hold them back and save the Democrats.   Keep telling your constituents that they are AstroTurf and this is all fake anger.  You will anger them even further and they will defeat you and your health care plan…So that we can, “Live long and prosper!”

71% Blame OBama For The Deficit!

slide_637_12921_largeFrom Rasmussen’s latest poll of likely voters:

71% say President Obama’s policies have increased the size of the federal deficit.
5% say the president’s policies have cut the deficit.
10% say no impact.
13% are not sure.

As for the recession, 54% blame Bush — 39% blame Obama.  The number who blame bush is dropping while Obama’s other poll numbers go in the toilet.  I wonder how long he thinks he can play the blame game?

Rat Infestation In Government: The Pied Piper of Washington is leading the rats to your wallet!

2366638601_815b52ed9e_oYou are probably familiar with the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.  But do you the story of the Pied Piper of Washington?  Well sit down children and you shall here how the Piper stole the American freedoms that we hold so dear!

There once was a Pied Piper who said, “We live in the greatest country in the world.  Help me change it!” 

 And the people said, “Change is good!”

Then he said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,”. 

 And the people said “Sock it to them!”

“and redistribute their wealth.” 

And the people said, “Show me the money!”
And then he said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody” 

And Joe the plumber said, are you kidding me?”
And Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized. 

And one lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?”
And she was banished from the kingdom! 

Then someone asked, “With no foreign relations experience, how will you deal with radical terrorists?”

And the Pied Piper said, “Simple.  I’ll sit down and talk with them and show them how nice we really are and they’ll forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!”

Then the Pied Piper said, “I’ll give 95% of you lower taxes.” 

And one, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.”
So the Pied Piper said, “Then I’ll give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!” 

And the people said, “Show me the money!”
Then the Pied Piper said, “I’ll tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!” 

And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.
And he said, “I’ll mandate employer- funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage.” 

And the people said, “Gim’me some of that!”
Then he said, “I’ll penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.” 

And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”
Then the Pied Piper actually said, “I’ll bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!” 

And the people said, “Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal!  But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.”
So the Pied Piper said, “Not to worry.  If your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we’ll bail you out.  Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!”  

Then he said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted.  Let’s grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing.”  
And the people said, “Ole`! Bravo!”  And they made him King!
And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers.  Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy slowed even further. 

 Then the Pied Piper said, “I am the Messiah and I’m here to save you!  We’ll just print more money so everyone will have enough!”  But our foreign trading partners said, “Wait a minute.  Your dollar isn’t worth what it was.  You’ll have to pay more.” 

And the people said, “Wait a minute. That’s not fair!”

And the world said, “Neither are these other, idiotic programs you’ve embraced.  You’ve become a Socialist state and a second-rate power.  Now you’ll play by our rules!” 

And the people said, “What have we done?”

But it was too late. 
If you think this is a fairy tale, open your eyes and ears. It’s happening RIGHT NOW!

Speed Racer Has Nothing On Barack

obama-signs-stimulus-bill-300x291Most of us sit dumbfounded as we watch the Obama administration move at break neck speed to “remake” America.  As you watch this medical meltdown come together and leaders begin to discuss another stimulus package, (oh my aching head) remember that Obama was critical of the speed of bills being pushed through Congress during the Bush administration.  

In 2004, Democratic Senator-elect Barack Obama complained about bills being pushed through Congress. 

From  News Busters,  an Obama interview with Randi Rhoades on Nov. 22, 2004:

BARACK OBAMA: …When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea what’s in them and nobody has read them.

RANDI RHODES: 14 pounds it was!

BARACK OBAMA: Yeah. And it gets rushed through without any clear deliberation or debate then these kinds of things happen. And I think that this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean you remember that there was no real debate about that. It was so quick after 9/11 that it was introduced that people felt very intimidated by the administration.

Fast forward to 2009 and the speed that our federal government is moving at is unprecedented!  I believe that our government is moving this fast intentionally.  Barack Obama is taking all of his progressive “Remake America” ideas and throwing them against the wall.  Some might say that it is being done to see what sticks but I think it goes much deeper than that.  I think its a game of divide and conquer!  He is intentionally overloading the system.  We are all busy with our lives.  Friends, family, work and other activities do not allow us to focus on the sheer amount of “progress” that our leaders are pitching. 

While our attention is focused on TARP, they are printing money like it is going out of style at the Fed!  While were looking in one direction,  Congress and the administration is sneaking through another one of their progressive ideas. 

I might remind you that Barack Obama ran on a platform of transparency.  You remember, reading the bills, posting them online for 5 days so that all Americans could read them. 

It’s funny how the words of lhypocrite’s always come back to haunt them.  The bottom line is…53% of Americans bought snake oil in November and 47% didn’t!  

OBMAMA: Not Ready For Prime Time Player
July 26, 2009, 12:03 pm

gatesHave you seen the photo of Henry Louis Gates Jr. taken by a neighbor?  Gates of course is the director of Harvard University’s W.E.B. Dubois Institute for African and African American Research.  He was arrested at his home in Cambridge, Mass. Police say they were called to the home of Gates after a woman reported seeing a man try to pry open the front door.  As we all know, it turned out to be him breaking into his own house because he had lost his keys. President Obama was asked about it during the press conference on Wednesday night and he said the police acted stupidly…. You know we worried about how experienced this man was before he became president and Obama showed he’s a not a ready for prime time player.

Maybe it is me, but if I were trying to sell the nation on a plan to take over a $2.4 trillion a year healthcare system, I would have avoided getting into a he said/he said battle between Police Sgt. James Crowley and Professor Gates — or Skip, as the president calls him.

President Obama ended his fourth prime-time press conference in his first 6 months by saying, in answer to a question from his hometown reporter Lynn Sweet: 

 “I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That’s just a fact.”

Ok follow me here…The Man is The President of The United States of America, should he be commenting on an incident, as he said, not being there and not knowing all of the facts?  Who does that?  Who makes a comment accusing an officer and police department of being stupid and suggests that it was racially motivated, without knowing the facts?  Does this sound like a President of the United States?  It doesn’t!….Bill Cosby sounded more like an American President than Barrack Obama when he said on a Boston radio station this week:  “This is a road we need not go down.”

What was pitched to the media as a six month report card on his job performance really was a press conference on healthcare.  President Obama wanted to turn big public opposition to his plan and get the message out on health care.

Way to shout down your own message, Mr. President.

For his part, Sgt. Crowley defended himself but did not knock the President.

Where did this question during the press conference come from?  Someone broke the rule and asked a non-healthcare question! That person was Lynn Sweet, a very savvy Chicago political reporter who knows Obama’s sensitivities from his Illinois state Senate days when he worked on racial profiling issues, asked the president, seemingly strangely, about a recent disorderly conduct arrest in Cambridge, Mass. On the surface that issue would not seem to merit attention as one of only 11 questions at a nationally-televised White House news conference with the president of the United States.

However, as Sweet well knew, the arrestee was black…a  respected academic. Also — here’s the key — a friend of Obama’s. The officer was white. It was late at night. Apparently a neighbor saw someone in a T-shirt breaking into a nearby home. It happened to be the key-less owner himself, but who knew then?

A softball that Obama swung at and hit into foul territory.

Let’s see, Sarah Palin… Joe the Plumber… clinging to guns… clinging to religion… now, Sgt. Crowley.

Is it just me, or is there a pattern here?

Then again, Barack Obama spent 3 years in Cambridge when he was in law school, so maybe he knows something I don’t. But, speaking of acting stupidly, wading into this controversy was not a very brilliant move.

Finally on Friday, President Obama apologized.  Did you notice how reluctant it was?  The political heat became too hot!  No one was talking about healthcare.  Everyone was talking about a decorated police officer from Cambridge who was doing his job and following protocol yet, the President Of The United States Of America called him Stupid…

It’s not that stupid is a harsh word or that stupid is dramatically hurtful.  It’s that this is the President of The United States calling one of America’s finest Stupid!  My liberal friends loved to use the words “Bush League”, when W made a gaffe or did not speak well…this is so far beyond “Bush League,” it’s off the charts bad!  

I cannot believe that there is not more outrage over the President calling one of America’s finest…Stupid.

A beer at the Whitehouse will now apparently fix the whole problem.  If I were Sgt. Crowley I would’ve said;  “Apology accepted, however on the invite…thanks, but no thanks!”
