Thomas Sowell - one of the greatest minds!

Of course MJ would probably call him a traitor to his people.

Monday, November 19, 2012


From my buddy DMH:

If you want to have a garage sale or sell your extra home-grown vegetables or make little hand-painted signs to sell at craft shows or stand on a street corner selling flowers out of plastic buckets YOU are a laissez-faire capitalist. Capitalism grants little people the unfettered right to turn their dreams into profitable little businesses. If you dream of remodeling an old delivery van into a taco wagon YOU are a capitalist. If you buy a couple dozen velvet paintings for a few $ and sell them beside the road for $$$ YOU are a capitalist. People who take chances in order to have a better life are CAPITALISTS. If you believe you can do anything you set your mind upon and direct your energy toward YOU are a capitalist. Be proud of yourself and reach for your dreams.

If you believe life has stacked the deck against you and you can't do it yourself-- if you believe government should cripple others so you can catch up with them-- YOU are a SOCIALIST. I feel sorry for you, poor thing. That's what you want... right?

Not going to Vote or have Never voted? Libertarians Want YOU!

Just like the old taverns, cafes can be incubators for out of the box thinking.  Today, I had the honor of meeting several of my facebook "friends" who are now definitely friends!  Rocky had this great idea of tapping this unexplored potential voting block.

According to USA Today, 90million Americans fall into the category of  being registered but not inspired enough to vote or have just never bothered.


The reasons cited in the article all sound like they haven't really thought it out or they don't want to say they are flat out disgusted with the system, the candidates and the resultant failures of both.  And after all what can one man do to affect them in any way whatsoever?

All too often, they don't feel welcome by any party.

This is where the Libertarian Party comes in.  We welcome everyone and we want to create an environment that encourages instead of regulates.  Education instead of legislation.  You really can achieve as much or as little as you the individual, want.

What do they want?  Many probably don't even know cause they have not really thought about it much.  I encourage everyone to "take the test".

Smallest Quiz In The World

If you discover you are libertarian you may ask yourself "what exactly does that mean"?  Good question.

What is libertarianism?

Check back, we'll have more later!

The Libertarian Republic

Great new site from a former segment producer for "Freedom Watch"!

Please visit.  Especially you Mother Jones.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Secession is an American Principle

Leave it to Ron Paul!

The Left thinks there are "traitors to their people"!

As Mother Jones has pointed out, you can't be black and be against Obama or the Democrats without being a traitor to their people!!!

Google it and you'll find the following have been branded traitors to their people or race:

Derek Jeter
Clarence Thomas
Jesse Jackson
Colin Powell - although since he most recently backed Obama he's probably been forgiven
Robert Hayden, poet
Herman Cain
Condoleeza Rice
Thomas Sowell
Even found a few articles calling Obama a race traitor

The list goes on and on.  Mother Jones really showed us the inner workings of the lefts mind.

The one time I agreed with Eric Holder was when he said we were a nation of cowards when it comes to discussing race.  Just little nudges like "traitor to his people" or "those people".  Yes it's on both sides, but at least we can admit it.

So much for Obama supporting Gay Marriage!

Who benefits from debt?

Left Wing Hate

Of course libbies will say it doesn't exist.

Bloomberg bans donations to Homeless Shelters???

This guy is an idiot!  Banning peoples right to buy as big a drink as they want is not enough, back in March he banned donations to Homeless Shelters.  So now while thousands in New York are still suffering from Hurricane Sandy, you cannot help by donating.  Because Bloomie can't verify the salt and fat content.

Liberal stupidity in our colleges

This is great and a perfect example of how the left cannot fathom us disagreeing with Obama for any other reason than he is black.  They could not handle that, charging racism is easier for them.  So our children in college get letters like this and our children if they are white are today being called "crackers" and being told "now you know what it is like to be a slave".  Even though, not one single person alive today in the US knows what it was like.

Anyway, this was forwarded to me by a parent:
Dear Friends,

This was received from our daughter the morning after the Election. She attends a prominent private university in Nashville, TN. Also please note the lack of spell check. I suppose she was too exuberant.

Mama and Daddy-

You will not even believe this. My head of house sent this email this morning and I am HIGHLY offended. Of course, what do you expect from an Obama supporter? Ignorance and name calling. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Your Jobless-in-the-Future Daughter,

Dear House Residents,

The election last night was historic. Like 2008, an Afro-American won the presidency again, in a divided nation. It should be no secret that I am personally delighted. I have tried to remain publicly neutral but this morning I am being transparent. I want to share what I think happened last night.

1. Racism lost last night. This is not a post-racial society but it is one that is tired of those who continue to practice racism to gain power. It is one that more and more citizens support leaders based on ideas and leadership than reject leaders based on difference. The demographics of this country have changed and you cannot lead by writing off any segment of American society.

2. Sexism lost last night. First of all, so many women won in tough campaigns. In New Hampshire this morning, the entire top federal leadership of that state is female. Those who dared to disrespect women's right to make their own decisions about their bodies lost. Elizabeth Warren won against Scott Brown and Claire McCaskill won against Todd Akin in tough races. Tammy Baldwin, an openly gay candidate, won in Wisconsin. In the words of the song "sisters can do it for themselves."

3. Big money lost last night. The amount of money thrown in this election was enought to go a long way to end the deficit. The effort to buy this campaign failed against the will of people who worked in the old fashioned way--shoe leather, knocking on doors, organizing coupled with the brillant use of technology and brillant campaign leadership.

4. Stupidity lost last night. By stupidity I mean the constant disrepect for ordinary people and treating them as if they are stupid led to great losses in many contests; the outrageous lying (as opposed to honest mistakes) was challenged last night. The failure last night to remember history ignited a movement. I am referring specifically to the attempt to suppress the vote in Florida, Ohio, and several other states. The attempt led to anger and a determination to exersize vote for thousands. As I write this, some are still voting in Florida.

5. Contempt for the poor lost elections last night. Poor people are citizens just like the middle class and the rich. They must be considered as part of America. Last night the poor voted, stood in long lines, and spoke out on talk radio and moved to have their voices heard.

Several other significant events happend in this campaign and last night. Mitt Romney and Scot Brown of MA. were gracious last night and called for us to work together to improve this country. President Obama opened by reaching out to Romney to continue discussions to solve America's problems. In the wake of the tragic storm that hit the East coast, Chris Christy, a Republican, and President Obama, a Democrat, acted like grownups. Let us hope this means that elected officials realize that the citizenry insist that they do their job.

There is so much more to be said but the most important point this morning is that you as the future leaders of this country take the right lessons from this election. To do that we must have the courage and maturity to talk about the issues raised in the political arena (and there are many issues) and to talk about the difficult and sensitive issue in our social relations. I have more faith in you than in my peers.

So I invite you to come and talk about these issues. Train yourselves to be better leaders for the future. Come to our dinners, have conversations with each other, drop my apartment and let's talk, go to lectures, and ask all the questions you need to anyone who will engage you. We need you to be the best you can be if we are going to tackle the local and global challenges in the future.

If you read this whole message, I thank you.

Warm regards,

Prof. XXXX

I really don't know where to go from here.

Maybe it wouldn't bother me so much if I hadn't studied the beginnings of our nation.

What the founders went through, what our army went through those years with barely anything to eat or clothes to wear.  Many fought barefooted.

And now to see what this nation has become.

The experiment that was America could not ever be duplicated because we do not have the same caliber of people, willing to sacrifice everything, even their lives, to bring about this nation.


So when it is completely destroyed, the rest of the world will no longer have us to point to as a beacon of hope.

'Waste Book 2012' - Weirdest things your tax dollars get spent on.

Among many:

Department of Defense's $700,000 beef jerky development program

Small Business Administration's $2 million in loans to cupcake makers
National Science Federation's $697,177 musical about climate change

Cupcake makers get money but you can't sell lemonade in your yard?

Hey Mother Jones, how is that fair?

Happy Halloween - hand over that candy !!!

Thomas Paine resource to share

One of many: Taken from the second part of The Rights of Man, here Thomas Paine argues that the order naturally observed in human society is not the result of government but, rather, “existed prior to government, and would exist if the formality of government was abolished.”

Econ 101

Is it really so hard to understand that when you buy something, the price of that item is determined by the companies expenses? If you charge them more taxes, they just raise their prices. If they can't raise their prices high enough to cover expenses including taxes, they go out of business and more jobs are lost.

The end user, you and I, pay ALL taxes whether we see them or not.

Plus, if companies were not paying taxes they would be a lot less interested in the politics. You want to cut superpacs and corporate involvement in the political arena, that is the best way to start, cut out their interest.

"OMG She wants to eliminate ALL corporate taxes!" Yes, since they just pass them on, think how much cheaper everything would be. How many more jobs would be created. Think how much better we would compete on a global market!!!

Friday, October 19, 2012

"Taxes are not used by corporations in determining the price they charge"

Yes, someone actually said that to me!  It was one of my favorite 3M's - MediaMattersMyrmidon.

She seems like a nice enough person but in serious need of Econ101.  Then one of the followup comments referred to Keynes - STOP RIGHT THERE!  That is the entire problem with progressives, they are still in love with Keynes.

Romney 1, Obama 0

I spent the debate with computer on lap, tapping away little comments along with my buds all over facebook.  Obama had called for his supporters to do that on facebook, twitter etc.  Only saw one or two on facebook, I think they gave up early on.

Obama committed two major sins in the debate world.  You MUST look your opponent in the eye as much as possible.  He avoided looking at Romney and was caught several times looking at the floor.

Number two -  he sighed!  Did you catch it?  Bad.

All in all, Romney knocked it outta the park.  Wonder if he blew it all in this first match up.  I'm sure Obama's handlers will be working over time to keep that from happening again.  The next debate will probably show us more.

Shall We Play A Game?

My point?  Let's do a what if.  Take your pick to which scenario you have thoughts about.

1.  Obama wins a second term.  What will he do?  What effect will it have on our economy, freedoms, future?

2.  Israel attacks Iran.  What nations will jump in to defend Iran and what nations will jump in to defend Israel from repercussions?  What "blowback" can we expect here at home?  Do you think war will be conventional?

We had a long discussion about these issues at work today, people are talking about them among themselves but you don't see anything publicly.  The responses I received were shocking.  Let me hear your thoughts first.

Changes to LW

I have tried to leave this open so anyone could post but several cowardly posts lately have made it necessary to add comment moderation.  I do not want to restrict comments to only those with google addresses or members of this blog so I will be looking at each comment prior to it being posted.

If we could all agree to it being limited to people agreeing to be members, then we could try that, but I don't want to go that route without a concensus.

Since 1979...

Blame The Movie, Blame The Movie, Blame The Movie

How does that go, repeat a lie often and loudly eventually everyone will believe it?

They have taken this filmmaker in for questioning just because of the outcry about his movie.  The feds are considering whether or not he violated his probation and could send him back to jail.

ONLY because of the outcry of this movie.  If the muslims had not rose up and the left use the movie as the blame, they would not have been talking to this man.

Regardless of whether you agree with the movie or find it in bad taste, it is Freedom of Speech that MUST be protected.  If the Middle East practiced more freedom of speech themselves they might not have waited till this year to "gain" their freedom.  Even though that freedom is lopsided and meant only for the straight muslim men.

Could Obama use Romney's faith against him?

Up front let me say, I am NOT religious in any way shape or form.  Some might call me an atheist.  But I have found atheists to be cultish in themselves and they go out of their way to abuse those practicing their 1st Amendment rights.  As long as they can believe how they like, I feel I have my rights to believe how I like.

It's being called the "nuclear option" by some.  That Obama's campaign would actually attack Romney's Mormonism in an effort to turn the evangelical voters against the GOP.

It has already begun in the left wing media with people like Bill Maher who calls Mormonism a cult.  Of course Maher doesn't like any religion.

Washington Post writers D.T. Bell and Ryan Bell very snidely ask "whether Mormonism is a legitimate religion".  As if any religion is any more legitimate than any other.  In my view it's all about the membership LOL!  If I can get 5 million people to join my cult, it suddenly becomes legitimate.

Would this be a bad move for Democrats?  Considering they had to be convinced by a Catholic who they then helped get elected, it would be a hypocritical move, certainly.

And I believe it would backfire.  After all, aren't democrats (little d) the most vocal supporters of Muslims?  How could they support one religion over another?

Brandon Raub released!

 "A circuit court judge has dismissed the government’s case against Brandon Raub and ordered that the Marine veteran, detained over anti-government Facebook posts, be released from a state psychiatric hospital because authorities had no grounds to detain him, Catie Beck of CBS 6 News reports."

This is what I found disturbing (among many things):   every year in Virginia more than 20,000 people are committed under similar circumstances and "that means a lot of people are disappearing" under the pretext of mental illness.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Careful who you criticize - you just think you have freedom of speech!

OTR brought this up on an earlier post and I think it is worth its own thread!

There is now a facebook page to show support for Brandon:

Although I'm guessing "someone" will be taking names and watching the posts.  But you can bet I'll be there!

Walter E Williams

Liberals, Progressives and Socialists


In Europe, especially in Germany, hoisting a swastika-emblazoned Nazi flag is a crime. For decades after World War II, people have hunted down and sought punishment for Nazi murderers, who were responsible for the deaths of more than 20 million people.
Here's my question: Why are the horrors of Nazism so well-known and widely condemned but not those of socialism and communism? What goes untaught – and possibly is covered up – is that socialist and communist ideas have produced the greatest evil in mankind's history. You say, "Williams, what in the world are you talking about? Socialists, communists and their fellow travelers, such as the Wall Street occupiers supported by our president, care about the little guy in his struggle for a fair shake! They're trying to promote social justice." Let's look at some of the history of socialism and communism.
What's not appreciated is that Nazism is a form of socialism. In fact, the term Nazi stands for the National Socialist German Workers' Party. The unspeakable acts of Adolf Hitler's Nazis pale in comparison with the horrors committed by the communists in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the People's Republic of China. Between 1917 and 1987, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin and their successors murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 62 million of their own people. Between 1949 and 1987, China's communists, led by Mao Zedong and his successors, murdered and were otherwise responsible for the deaths of 76 million Chinese. The most authoritative tally of history's most murderous regimes is documented on University of Hawaii Professor Rudolph J. Rummel's website, and in his book Death by Government.
How much hunting down and punishment have there been for these communist murderers? To the contrary, it's acceptable both in Europe and in the U.S. to hoist and march under the former USSR's red flag emblazoned with a hammer and sickle. Mao Zedong has been long admired by academics and leftists across our country, as they often marched around singing the praises of Mao and waving his little red book, "Quotations From Chairman Mao Tse-tung." President Barack Obama's communications director, Anita Dunn, in her June 2009 commencement address to St. Andrews Episcopal High School at Washington National Cathedral, said Mao was one of her heroes.
Whether it's the academic community, the media elite, stalwarts of the Democratic Party or organizations such as the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza, Green for All, the Sierra Club and the Children's Defense Fund, there is a great tolerance for the ideas of socialism – a system that has caused more deaths and human misery than all other systems combined.
Today's leftists, socialists and progressives would bristle at the suggestion that their agenda differs little from those of Nazi, Soviet and Maoist mass murderers. One does not have to be in favor of death camps or wars of conquest to be a tyrant. The only requirement is that one has to believe in the primacy of the state over individual rights.
The unspeakable horrors of Nazism didn't happen overnight. They were simply the end result of a long evolution of ideas leading to consolidation of power in central government in the quest for "social justice." It was decent but misguided earlier generations of Germans – who would have cringed at the thought of genocide – who created the Trojan horse for Hitler's ascendancy. Today's Americans are similarly accepting the massive consolidation of power in Washington in the name of social justice.
If you don't believe it, just ask yourself: Which way are we headed tiny steps at a time – toward greater liberty or toward more government control over our lives?
Perhaps we think that we are better human beings than the German people who created the conditions that brought Hitler to power. I say, don't count on it.

We the people....and follow up!

Enjoy the video?  I had a few problems with it and while chewing over my words, our buddy butt neckid (who sent to me and several others) had a followup which touched on almost all my issues!  So with his permission, here goes (if you get offended with any of the language then go back to Media Matters):

First off I changed font for this message...and the color will appear soon...
our shipmate Cooper has sent me a lot of stuff today and I have shared it with you...the We the People clip was well put together and had a pretty good comes that other shoe, buttttttt...

and now we are in the crap hole of all crap holes...we got bitch slapped by some stinkin' moooslambs who stole some airplanes an' crashed into 3 buildings and a' we're on the losing team...
huh???...whaadaafaa did you say???...WE ARE LOSING!!!...don't believe me???...

how does your wife, mom, daughter feel when the TSA gang grope ''d be locked up if you tried that!!!...WE ARE LOSING...
next come trains, buses, your car...did you enjoy your last prostate exam at the air port???...WE ARE LOSING...
now we have sent our young warriors off to a foreign cesspool in the fuggin' desert to get killed by so called allies...3 this very day...WE ARE LOSING...
so now let me ax ya...who's freedom are those youngsters (AL's grandson, usa, LIZ's son, usmc) fighting for???...yours???...mine???...I can't hear you...
the last time I had the bees buzzin' over my head the fightin' wasn't for mom, apple pie or the american was for the  survival of me an the dumbass next to me...he was thinkin' the same thing...whaadaa hell am I doin' here???...

whats the solution???...wellll...for starters, if they are in office today
 THEY ARE THE FUCKING PROBLEM!!! you sent them there...
so number two is when you head for the polls make sure you head is full of facts and not lil' fuzzy puss...eeer kittens...know the issues...forget party, if they tend to think like you do that's the one...
orrrrrrrrrr...leave the box/circle blank... if there is no good choice...
but please don't use our kids in uniform to say they are defending our freedom...
now I may have upset some of you, those that kno' me will kno' I don't give a fuzzy rat turd about your feelings, because if you voted for an incumbent you deserve to have that fuzzy rat turd shoved up your ass...with the rat attached!!!...okay gotta go the meds just kicked in...

Reporter gets a taste of Obama "oh no you can't"!

I love it when a reporter has a sudden moment of clarity especially when it comes to how the Obamans have manipulated them!!!

Dave Davies practically had his microphone snatched away from him outside of a Michelle Obama event, you can listen to some of it on his report.

Sounds to me like the people who kept stopping him from interviewing attendees were well rehearsed on what they were to say when stopping reporters. 

STONEWALL in action!

Who needs Congress? Once again, proving their irrelevance.

Obama is proving he does not acknowledge the concept of equal but separate branches of government.  Congress should just cave to his every wish or he'll whip out that executive action pen and show them who's boss!!

On the surface you'd think we should do all we can to protect our power grids and water treatment facilities.  So what is the problem?  After all, he's only asking for voluntary standards... under Homeland Security scrutiny!!! 

And there's the rub.  The Republicans in the House has already passed a bill "encouraging" businesses to share cyberthreat information.  That was probably a big mistake as it'll be rolled into the responsibility of our buddies at Homeland Security who are the sole judge of what constitutes a national security issue and whether a company falls under that umbrella.

Okay I'm extrapolating there, but do you really think a crisis would not give HS the opportunity to further regulate businesses?  All in the name of security?

Ol' Ben Franklin keeps yelling in my ear "those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserves neither".

Our Rules, Their Rules

This says it all, anything else is hyperbole!

For your consideration!

What do you think about the possibility of a Petraus VP for Romney?  Me thinks Obama is wishful thinking cause this would probably chase away all the independents.

For the conspiracy theorists among you: Wayne Allen Root on Obama's college years.

I'm sorry, but are the Dems getting desperate, are they really dragging po Jimmy out of his hole?

Speech or Debate Clause - Harry Reid

I heard this for the first time, the "Speech or Debate Clause":

"Article I, Section 6, Clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution states in part,
for any Speech or Debate in either House, [senators and representatives] shall not be questioned in any other place.
The purpose of the clause is to prevent the arrest and prosecution of unpopular legislators based on their political views."

This only applies to when they are speaking from the floor which is the only time that Reid is so adamant that Romney has not paid taxes!  He doesn't say (while on the floor) that there is a rumor, he flat out say, Romney has not paid taxes!

So this clause protects their lies and innuendo's.


Gay Marriage and Free Speech

Is the recent Chick Fila bruhaha a serious issue or a distraction?  Putting aside how you personally feel about gay marriage, do you really think anyone in government should say they are not going to "allow" Chick Fila to open in their city?

What does that say about the power these officials think they have or we have given them?

We used to be a nation that respected and defended everyone's 1st amendment right to free speech EVEN IF what they said was in direct contradiction to our own beliefs.

But even now we can find examples of that attitude.  Maybe it is re-awakening in all of us?  In reading the comment sections of at least half a dozen sites where this is a big discussion, there have been many self-proclaimed gays who support the "eat in" and it's defense of free speech.  Bravo!

And here we actually have the ACLU once again stepping up to defend the KKK's free speech rights as they attempt to "Adopt A Highway" near Blairsville, GA.

But LW, you say, there are so many more important issues, this is jut a distraction!!  And you know what?  When I first started working on this article THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT TO WRITE!!!  But the more I read and thought about it, what could be more important than our First Amendment???

And then we have the question of the opposing view being allowed to express their same right.  But is there a limit?  Today's "kiss in" resulted in vandalism to a Chick Fila restaurant.

Chick-fil-A graffitiPicture from LA Times.

Should they be allowed to block customers from entering a restaurant?  And it's not just Chick Fila.  Should people be allowed to approach your advertisers and threaten them with a boycott if they don't drop their advertising?  This is what Media Matters does to Rush Limbaugh.

Doctors face the dilemma of coming under attack if they do not perform abortions when that is against their personal views.

Where is the line?  Should there be a line or is it a case of "careful what you wish for" cause some bureaucrat somewhere will abuse even that.

Oh wait!  One already has!

TSPLOST In Georgia

MOST of Georgia finally got a clue and voted NO for TSPLOST.  Even Atlanta!  That was a major shock.

But my home county of Richmond voted overwhelmingly YES.  So this is for them:

Your thoughts please!

Think we could kick this site up a notch?  Maybe have some guest writers and co-admin?  What about advertising, yes or no?  What is it about a site that keeps you coming back every day.  Do you want general consensus or total antagonistic venom spewing?

I've considered it in the past but didn't think anyone would be that interested in my ramblings.  But with a little help from my friends (get that song outta your head) maybe it could happen!

Comments please and tell your friends.

Stubbs for President

I guess it's too late to get him on the ballot, so maybe a write in campaign!

Mayor of Talkeetna, AK is a ... CAT!!!

"You didn't build that!"

My boss and I pay the taxes that pay the salaries of teachers. My boss and I pay the taxes that pay for new roads and bridges and pave existing ones. My boss and I pay the taxes that pay for firemen, police, etc.

So Mr. President, it is not government that enables business to exist, but it is WE THE PEOPLE that enable government to exist!!!

Memorial Day

Let's keep our soldiers in mind when we vote and choose people who will make the decision to either send more in harms way or bring them home and not use them to make political statements.

Rush Limbaugh, sluts, advertisers and the extreme left

Getting tired of hearing about this old dog?  How many advertisers has Limbaugh lost by now?  Around 32 if you listen to Media Matters.  They don't tell you how many he has picked up to fill those spots but that's ok!

But what is the REAL reason behind the attacks on Rush?

Here's my response to one of the many facebook posts by Media Matters:

That's ok, keep it up, we all know that it's only because it's Rush. Just as the recently uncovered emails of Media Matters have shown, he is a target no matter what he does. And that's ok too. Conservatives are just held to a higher standard! We all know that what the Maher/ Ed Schultz / Olberman crowd say is ok, even though they are just as disgusting, but we know extreme leftists just can't help it! A year from now no will remember this and Rush's advertisers will be back or replaced with companies that care about this country not being pushed over the financial cliff. Enjoy yourselves while you can.

And once again, I am hated by the denizens of MM!!!  Love it.  At least two other posters there have picked up on my stand and are repeating it everywhere.

Obama's Road Signs

 On I-5 (88 miles south of Seattle )

The federal government is now petitioning to have these signs removed or Washington state will be denied additional monies for interstate highways. 

The State of Washington replied, they will secede from the Union rather than be intimidated. These are a matter of free speech paid for by a private citizen.

It seems the Obama government uses intimidation and ignores the first amendment when they want to silence someone.

NY Times article on the world view of our Constitution

My answer to the NY times:

This article and many of the comments clearly show a lack of understanding and study on the intent and abuse of the constitution. "Most difficult to amend" I found especially distressful. It is not supposed to be easy. If it was, we would no longer be a republic but a democracy. Rule of law versus mob rule. At every change of administration, there would be changes.

There is nothing wrong with our constitution except that we have forgotten Franklin's words: "A republic ma'am, for as long as you can hold it". In other words, it is our fault for allowing our government representatives the power to abuse the constitution. It is meant to be a restriction of their power. We should fight to keep it so.

As far as the world no longer appreciating our constitution, that is pure garbage. As nations are realizing the damage their socialist, entitlement way of living has brought them to economic ruin, they look more and more longingly at our example.

We should reverse the 17th amendment immediately and work more to limit governmental powers.

Romney, McCain and the NDAA

How long have we been complaining about having to hold our noses when we voted for McCain in 2008?  How many times has it been said in countless blogs, posts on facebook, pundits on television, radio hosts, etc., that McCain was a lousy choice that the establishment Republicans shoved down our throats?

And what does Romney do?  Accept the endorsement of McCain!!!  That move right there I believe will sink his candidacy.  Not that he was my choice to begin with, but now he is definitely off the radar.

Now, about that National Defense Authorization Act.  Here is the pdf:

Starting at page 359 is the part most people refer to, the "detaining of, for purposes of, in support of...etc etc etc".

HOWEVER, if you are still awake by the time you get to that page and continue to page 362, you will find the following:

(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The require- 17
ment to detain a person in military custody under 18
this section does not extend to citizens of the United 19
States. 20
(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The require- 21
ment to detain a person in military custody under 22
this section does not extend to a lawful resident 23
alien of the United States on the basis of conduct 24
taking place within the United States, except to the
extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

Are you watching Iowa?

I think we can pretty much say that Bachmann is toast.  So will her supporters then turn to Santorum?

Huntsman will probably be gone also, not sure where his supporters would go.

What do you think?

What I find amazing is how the so-called conservative candidates, the media and many posters throughout the internet are pointing fingers at the liberal support coming out for Ron Paul.  So the libs can appreciate the constitutionality of a candidate more than conservatives?

That strikes me as the ultimate case of hypocrisy.

The Buffett Tax Mentality

We've all heard Warren Buffett complain (or brag) that he pays a lower tax rate than his secretary.

Now, I'm betting that his secretary is making at least $200,000. Which is enough to ensure she (or he, not to be sexist) can expect to pay even more if Obama's "Buffett Tax" goes into effect!

"Thanks boss!"

Maybe Buffet is feeling a tad bit guilty after his $5 billion investment in Goldman Sachs, I just hope he thanked the taxpayers for propping his investment up long enough for him to clear his multi-million dollar windfall.

But let's think about this "paying your fair share" approach our President and many others take in regards to pushing the wealth envy warfare:

A) What do you get for the taxes you pay? The government's responsibility is to protect us from attack, guard our borders. They do a lot more than that, but that is basically the federal governments constitutional responsibility.

B) What more would the rich get for paying more? Would they be protected more? Protecting the borders protects all of us.

So my question is, what would the rich get for their money if they paid more? They already pay more in dollars for the same benefits.

How is that fair? That is what they would think. Many are contemplating a "Going Galt" approach if they can. But many in the bullseye of this new tax, are small business owners who are stuck with big loans for buildings, equipment, possibly union contracts. They are stuck. But they have options.

So ask yourself this: have you ever worked for a poor person? Would you want to? Don't you think your boss is going to cut expenses SOMEWHERE to make up for this increase in taxes? There is no benefit to him/her to pay more to the Federal Government.

And then there's the regulation avalanche.... that's a discussion for another day.

Right Scoop - bye bye

Yes I have removed them from my "Blog Roll".  They have become nothing but Ron Paul bashers and can't even admit it when you point it out.

Who's your choice?

You may know that my preference is Ron Paul but how about you?  No, I won't attack you for liking someone else and I won't allow attacks from others (you will be deleted).  Just interested in hearing your reasoning.

Happy New Year !!!

Yes I'm back! It's 2012, another volatile election ahead of us so my resolution has been to share information, educate where I can and learn from you.

So let's get started.

Santorum has stated he would bomb Iran. What would happen if we did that? The muslim nations in the area have not always seen eye to eye with Iran but wouldn't they dislike that type of action even more than they dislike Iran? What about Russia and China? They both have a lot invest in the area.

Another item for discussion is the "social host" laws that are growing in more and more states. Even if you had no idea the kids in your house are drinking you can be hauled off to jail.

Here's my problem with that: what if it's your kid. Do you not have the right to decide it's ok for your kid to drink as long as they do so in your home and not out on the streets? Many parents tell their kids "if you are going to drink, do it here". Knowing they will drink with or without their permission, at least they are safe at home. With these laws however, they could go to jail.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts.
