This'n'That; January Thirty-First ['Thug-in-Chief']

Street Thug-In-Chief!!
    "Clown Prince" obama reverted to his previous occupation--that of 'community agitator'--while opining on the violence in Cairo, Egypt:
    {*}U.S. aid to Egypt includes both military and civilian assistance.  Since Egypt made peace with Israel in 1978, the United States has plowed billions into the country to help modernize its armed forces, and to strengthen regional security and stability.  The U.S. has provided Egypt with F-16 jet fighters, as well as tanks, armored personnel carriers, Apache helicopters, anti-aircraft missile batteries, aerial surveillance aircraft and other equipment.
The Clown said, "We've also been clear that there must be reform, political, social and economic reforms that meet the aspirations of the Egyptian people." He added that the demonstrators had a responsibility to express themselves peacefully. He continued, "Violence and destruction will not lead to the reforms they seek."   obama's decision to speak about the crisis in Egypt underscored the enormous U.S. interest at stake - from Israel's security to the importance of the Suez Canal and the safety of thousands of Americans who live and work in Egypt.
    My guess here is; The U.S. has been 'buying it's friends' for years, worldwide.  It's time to cease all foreign aid for a specified period of time--expressed in YEARS--and conduct an assessment as to who's truly worthy of the cash that's helping to bankrupt America!!
    Foreign aid by region (latest numbers, and ONLY the most well-known countries):
  • Israel:        $3,175,000,000
  • Egypt:        $1,550,000,000
  • Columbia:      $561,000,000
  • Jordan:         $458,000,000
  • Pakistan:      $734,000,000
  • Peru:            $136,000,000
  • Indonesia:    $159,000,000
  • Kenya:         $437,000,000
  • Bolivia:         $122,000,000
  • Ukraine:         $96,000,000
  • India:           $137,000,000
  • Haiti:           $225,000,000
  • Russia:         $67,000,000
  • Ethiopia:     $474,000,000
  • West Bank/Gaza:  $69,000,000
  • Liberia:       $102,000,000
  • Bangladesh:  $84,000,000
  • Bosnia:         $43,000,000
The total--for just these few countries--is but $8,629,000,000!  This seems insignificant when compared to the entire U.S. budget; it's a tidy sum to you and I, who are forced to 'foot the bill!!'  And--the-Hell-of-it-is--when considered as a dollar-amount per person, the disparity is shameful!!  Check out these four recipients:

  • Iraq:           $625
  • Israel:         $365
  • Ethiopia:         $2
  • Indonesia:       $1
   As I see it;  the recipients of the greatest ratio shouldn't receive any; if the program has to be--those on the lowest end of the scale should receive several times their current benefit!!  But, that brings to mind the dictators in these destitute, third-world ratholes;  most of the incoming foreign-aid (read: U.S. aid) ends up in a numbered bank account rather than actual benefits for the country's citizens!!

Today Is The Anniversary....
    Today is the seventy-first anniversary (01/31/1940) of Social Security check #00-000-001, issued to Ida May Fuller of Ludlow--and later, Rutland, and still later: Brattleboro--Vermont; in the amount of $22.54.  Miz Fuller went on to collect a total of $22,888.92 over the course of her 100-year life.

What Few National Pamphleteers Report!
What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

Saturday, January 29, 2011
    President Obama, in his State of the Union address last Tuesday night, called his plans for targeted new spending in areas like education, transportation and technology “investment,” but his speech did little to sell the idea to voters.
    Rasmussen Reports asked voters the same three questions about the president’s economic proposals on the two nights prior to the speech and then again on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. On the first two nights, 39% supported the proposals. On the next two nights, support was 41%.
50% now oppose the federal government spending more money in areas like education, transportation and technological innovation, up from 45% in the previous survey.
Most voters continue to feel that cutting taxes and reducing government spending are best for the economy.
22% expect the president to hit his goal of cutting the deficit in half by the end of his first term.
54% of voters still think Congress is unlikely to significantly reduce government spending over the next year.
Just 10% rate the new Congress’ performance as good or excellent.
48% say the legislators are doing a poor job. GOP voters remain the biggest critics.
    Following the House's recent repeal of the national health care law, sending the issue on to the Senate, most voters continue to favor repeal, but support has fallen to its lowest level since late October. Fewer voters also now believe the law will force them to change their existing health insurance coverage.
    Republicans still hold a five-point lead over Democrats on the Generic Congressional Ballot – 44% to 39%, but it’s their smallest lead since the first week of December.
    The president also argued strongly in his State of the Union speech for a bipartisan effort to create jobs, but most Americans think the best thing government can do is get out of the way.  60% of Adults think decisions made by U.S. business leaders to help their own businesses grow will do more to help create jobs in America than decisions made by government officials.
    It was a tie game when we asked voters which they were more interested in watching – the president’s State of the Union speech or the upcoming Super Bowl.
    History tells us that primary polls are all about name recognition at this early stage, and right now the best-known Republican hopefuls are running ahead among likely party primary voters.
24%-Mitt Romney leads the pack.
19%-Sarah Palin runs second.
17%-Mike Huckabee.
While Palin remains a top favorite of Republican voters, she’s also [....]

Morning Bell:
The Left Must End Their War on School Choice

January 28th, 2011
    This Wednesday morning at 10 am, after serving nine days of a 10-day sentence, Kelley Williams-Bolar was released from the Summit County Jail in Akron, Ohio. Her crime? Trying to provide her two daughters with a better education. How on earth did trying to provide your children with a better education become a crime in the United States? Because the political party that currently occupies the White House is completely dependent on the power of education unions, and these unions see all efforts to shift power away from them, and to parents like Williams-Bolar, as a threat to their very existence. The case of Williams-Bolar is a perfect opportunity for the left to stop and reconsider their war on school choice.
     Before January 15, Williams-Bolar had no criminal record. She lived in an Akron housing project with her two daughters, worked as a teaching assistant at Buchtel High School, and was going to college to further her own education career. Like any parent, Williams-Bolar wanted to give her children the best education possible. But the grade 6 reading and math scores of students in the Akron City School District are almost 30 points lower than those in neighboring Copley-Fairlawn City School District. While Ohio does allow school choice intradistrict, Copley-Fairlawn does not offer open enrollment to children who live in the Akron City School District. Ohio also offers private-school-tuition scholarships to students in Cleveland, but that program is not available to children in Akron.
    So starting in August 2006, Williams-Bolar signed forms claiming her two daughters lived at their father’s address in the Copley-Fairlawn School District. Two years later the Copley-Fairlawn School District hired a private investigator who shot video of Williams-Bolar driving her children from their home in the [....]

Barack Obama’s Lying Liars

January 28, 2011
 by Chip Wood
    No, I am not talking about the President’s State of the Union speech from this past Tuesday. Thanks to the deadline demands at Personal Liberty Digest, I had to finish this column the day before that oration. I will comment next week on Obama’s performance (which I expect to be filled with platitudes and promises that the media will love — and the White House won’t keep).
    My topic today is the great debate over raising — for the 81st time since 1940 — the ceiling on how deeply in debt the Federal government can go. Right now, Washington is not allowed to borrow a dollar over $14.29 trillion. And they’re already within $300 billion of that limit, give or take a few billion bucks.
To hear our officials tell it, [....][PIZ0411E]&rrid=387432349

ACORN New Scam: "New York Communities for Change"
Monday, January 24, 2011

    The moochers, looters, parasites and vultures are back with a new mask. Yes, the bloodsuckers have returned -- and are quickly back to stealing, looting, robbing the children, the schools, the working man, the poor .... all to line the fat pockets of fat cat statists.  Predictably, the leecher teachers unions are paying off these thugs big time -- giving ACORN New York Communities for Change more than $200,000 last year -- a big chunk of the advocacy group's budget. NYCC's views on education mirrors the UFT's.
    The UFT last year opposed the city's attempt to close 20 failing schools and replace them with new schools with new principals and teachers. Vampires.  And of course, ACORN New York Communities for Change is against a Wal-Mart in New York City, despite the overwhelming poll numbers -- over 87% of New Yorkers want a Wal-Mart. Hey, screw the poor, it's what the left does best. Keep the slaves down and under their thumb.  The common man, the individual, has no shot at a free life. America, where are you?
'ACORN' is reborn in B'klyn NY Post
Only name not same
Watch out! ACORN is back -- in all but its name.
    Backed by hundreds of thousands of dollars in union donations, New York Communities for Change -- a rebranded version of the controversial organization that closed up shop amid several scandals -- is acting again as labor's attack dog on controversial issues.  NYCC took over ACORN's office on Nevins Street in Brooklyn, shares some of the same board members and uses its membership lists and other resources.
    The "new" organization also fights to provide and preserve affordable housing for low-income New Yorkers.  But when NYCC has to choose between low-income consumers and unions, it dances to Big Labor's tune.  Consider Walmart's bid to open in New York City. It would offer discounted prices, which would disproportionately benefit the poorest New Yorkers.  But instead NYCC has joined the campaign to block Walmart because [....]
White House needs border security plan
By Jim Kouri
Sunday, January 16, 2011
    New York’s Congressman Peter King, the new chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee demanded that Obama White House present Congress with a detailed plan to properly secure the U.S.-Mexico border after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the scrapping border fence project.
    Following the Obama administration’s announcement to discontinue work on a “virtual border,” Rep. King said in a press statement that the Department of Homeland Security should “speed up its plan to establish a protected border.”
    The original Southwest Border Initiative program, started during President George W. Bush’s administration, has only established 53 miles worth of fencing along the border, and has been plagued by construction delays and equipment failure. Earlier last year, Secretary Napolitano ordered a complete assessment of the project.  As reported in the past by, the original border security plan called for a fence and barriers to be used on parts of the U.S.‘s southern border, but with the [....]

"Clown Prince" Weekly Blather; January 29th

A Patriotic Response To The "Clown Prince;" 01/29/2011
Manitowoc, Wisconsin

January 29, 2011

    I’m speaking to you today from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, where I’m at an innovative company called Orion Energy Systems.  Just a few years ago, this was an empty warehouse. A major employer had shut down this factory, moved its operations abroad, and took a lot of jobs away from this town.  But today, as you can see behind me, this is a thriving enterprise once more. You are looking at a factory where 250 workers are building advanced clean energy systems – state-of-the-art technologies that use solar power and energy efficiency to save farms and businesses thousands of dollars on their utility bills.  I’m here because this business and others like it are showing us the way forward. And in the coming days, I’ll be shining a spotlight on innovators across America who are relying on new technologies to create new jobs and opportunities in new industries.
[What I'm not telling you: I chose Manitowoc to kick off the 'non-Tragic' start of the "Campaign of Fluff-Redux" simply because it's the home state of one of my major detractors, Representative Paul Ryan (R, Wi-1); the fact that there's a 'clean energy' plant here is of no consequence to me--Soros and I intend to use the EPA to 'mandate change.'  I should have the statistics for how much federal government 'bribe money' was spent on this plant.... but: 'Oops!!'  I forgot to bring the information with me!!  Just as with the potentially 'ever-lasting' $7,500 tax credit--just to make the Chevy 'Volt' marketable--I'm sure there'll eventually be either a federal tax credit or a federal mandate concerning these other 'green energy' marketing plans.  The 'savings for farms and businesses' I speak of, relate solely to energy consumption NOT energy 'costs!'  Green energy is--and will remain, into the forseeable future--NOT self-sustainable; currently NOT affordable for the serf-class!!]    That’s what companies like Orion are doing. And that’s how America will win the future – by out-innovating, out-educating, and out-building our competitors. We’ll win the future by being the best place on Earth to do business. That is what we are called to do at this moment. And in my state of the union, I talked about how we get there.  It starts by making sure that every single child can get a good education and every American can afford college or career training. Because that’s what will help light the spark in the minds of innovators – and ensure that our people have the skills to work for innovative companies.  We also need to make sure that America can move goods and information as fast as any of our competitors, whether on the road or online. Because good infrastructure helps our businesses sell their products and services faster and cheaper.  We have to reform our government and cut wasteful spending, so that we eliminate what we don’t need to pay for the investments we need to grow, like education and medical research.
[What I'm not telling you:  The United States will never be 'the best place on earth to do business' until the republicRATs force my regime to revamp America's tax code!  Currently, we are 'the worst place on earth to do business,' solely due to the federal corporate tax rates.  We have the highest corporate tax rate on the planet!!  I believe in the 'fascist code' of "Innovation-for-Dollars;'  wasting federal dollars by subsidizing those innovations.  That philosophy doesn't work-was rarely needed until Soros brought us to power!  Henry Ford:  Didn't need--nor did he desire--any federal stimulus to perfect and manufacture the Ford automobile; to create innovations related thereto.  Mr Ford even went so far as to reduce the MSRP of his products so that the folks who made 'em--could afford 'em!!  Mr Ford, well ahead of his time, created experimental vehicles using agricultural products to spur farm income!!  Not a fascist, he!!!  Another 'ahead of his time' American is Dick Rutan.  Mr Rutan with his brother Burt and Jeana Yeager developed and built the 'Model 76 Voyager.'  Dick and Ms Yeager later flew the craft on a complete, around-the-world, non-stop flight and in the process, destroyed several world distance and endurance records.  All that without a nickel in federal money!!  Not fascists, they!!  The federal PORKulus bill was 'allegedly' intended to repair and replace parts of America's infrastructure-remember the phrase "shovel-ready jobs?!?"  What a joke that turned out to be!  After Soros used most of that money to reward supporters of, and contributors to, the "Campaign of Fluff;" and after I was forced to admit there was no such thing as a 'shovel-ready job;' we now need to go back to the Congress for more money-ostensibly to repair and replace portions of 'the infrastructure.'  One of my latest 'bone-headed' ideas is high-speed rail from one non-descript location to another non-descript location!!  With Americans' love of the SUV and big sedans, after 'the fad wears off' any high-speed rail system will require federal subsidies far in excess of those that Amtrack currently enjoys!  During the most recent "State of the Union Show," practically everything Soros had me speak to demanded more federal 'spending money!!'  The size of government needs to continue to grow; the amount of federal spending needs to continue to grow-the only way to break the spirit of the few remaining optimists!!]
    And as we can see here in Manitowoc, we need to ensure that we are promoting innovation – especially in promising areas like clean energy. This is going to be key to growing our economy and helping businesses create jobs. Orion, for example, was able to open with the help of small business loans and incentives that are creating demand for clean energy technologies like wind power and solar panels.  That’s why I’ve proposed a bigger tax credit for the research that companies do. And to give these companies the certainty of knowing there will be a market for what they sell, I’ve set this goal for America: by 2035, 80 percent of electricity should come from clean energy.  This is going to help spark innovation at businesses across America. This is going to spur new products and technologies. This is going to lead to good, new jobs. And that’s how we win the future – by unleashing the talent and ingenuity of American businesses and American workers in every corner of this country.  So to those who say that America’s best days are behind us, let them come here, to Manitowoc. Let them come to this once-shuttered factory that is now bustling with workers building new technologies for the world. Let them come here to see the incredible promise of our country.  This is the future. And it’s bright.
[What I'm not telling you: As has been plain all along, 'clean energy' is not, and will not be sustainable, no matter what 'pretty face ya draw on it!!'  This technology segment will be have to be subsidized well into the foreseeable future.  The better methodology of federal involvement is to cut taxes at all levels to the bare minimums and 'get the Hell out'ta the way!!'  But as George says, "Where's the federal control, in that?!?"  I say,  "Where's the growth in government, in that?!?"  That electricity source goal I mentioned?  All 'pie-in-the-sky' bullshit!!  First of all-without sustainable technology, the power isn't going to be available; second of all-if it is available, it'll be so expensive that most of America will think they're living in some 'third-world rathole!!'  Sure the future's bright.... for those of us on the federal dole!!]



This'n'That; January Twenty-Nineth [Steyn; Steyn]

First On Rush's Show-01/28:
    Syndicated columnist and bestselling author Mark Steyn sat in 'the big chair' for Friday's "El Rushbo" Show.  Mark had a disabled (wheelchair bound) caller who suggested that everyone in the United States take part in a collection to pay off the national debt.  The caller was willing to put up an ill-afforded $500!!
I was working in "The Cabinet Shop" at the time, so couldn't pay close attention to Mr Steyn's answer.  I've formulated a bit of an answer, myself:
  • The US currently has a  population in the 310 million-range.
  • The US currently (as of: 01/27/2011) has a national debt of $14,059,409,159,678.42
  • The US currently has a working-aged adult population of 227.4 million persons.
  • The US currently has a public assistance population of 50.1 million persons.
  • The US currently has a total workforce of 138.5 million persons.
  • The US currently has a taxpayer base of 110.7 million persons.
  • The US median income is $32,140.
  • The national debt-per citizen: $45,155
  • The national debt-per taxpayer: $127,210
Given the aformentioned information--and a calculator that works in 'the trillions,' which I don't have--to just 'take up a collection' would be an impossible task, unless of course, you're the IRS!!
  • Presuming all citizens are working--which we know, they ain't--and earning the median income; they'd have to donate nearly 1-1/2 years' earnings-and STILL OWE TAXES on the donated monies!
  • Each taxpayer would have to donate nearly 4-years' earnings PLUS TAXES, of  course!
  • Each 'welfareRAT' would have to get "off his dead-ass; onto his dyin' feet!!"
I'm thinkin', while the caller's suggestion was admirable; it's an impossible task!! 
Firstly, dam' few taxpayers could even afford to make donations of this calibre. Secondly, dam' few American citizens would volunteer for this undertaking.
Thirdly, dam' few politicians--with a national debt paid to ZERO--would have neither the inclination, nor the testicular fortitude, to maintain it at that level!!
{Blogger's Note:  Please check out the 'debt clock' URL, below.  This should be in everyone's 'Favorites' list;  the most indepth--up-to-the-millisecond--national information available!!}

Secondly, On Rush's Show-01/28:
   As I mentioned previously, I was working in 'The Cabinet Shop,' so I didn't hear all of Mr Steyn's commentary.  What I did get though, were the words: "barack-ingham Palace."  I think Mark was using those words while commenting on the 'inept, idiot-ironical, non-common sensical blather' of "The State of the Union Show."  With apoligies to Mr Steyn, I intend to co-opt his phrase and use it in every instance I can!!

This'n'That; January Twenty-Eighth [Red Light Cameras; Birther; Moocher]

Rochester Continues 'Revenue-Enhancement'
    The City of Rochester (N.Y.) continues in it's efforts to replace tax revenue lost by the egress of 20 and 30-somethings to more 'tax-friendly' cities and states.
    Red Light Cameras are the up-and-coming method for the city to refill it's depleting coffers!  With the addition of two more, there are five operating Red Light Cameras at the following locations:
  1. North Clinton Avenue and Andrews Street (activated 01/28)
  2. North Clinton Avenue and Norton Street (activated 01/28)
  3. North Street at Clifford Avenue (activated previously)
  4. Broadway Street at Alexander Street (activated previously)
  5. State Street at Jay Street (activated previously)

'Birth Certificate' Saga Continues
    I gotta tell'ya.... for someone bright enough to earn billions-of-dollars in investments; bright enough to bankrupt The Bank of England,  George Soros hasn't been too successful in defending his 'selection-for-election!!'  Georgie-Porgie shud'da checked the candidates' documentation prior to funding his/their "Campaign of Fluff!!"
    As has been reported ad nauseam, obama has not--nor can he; nor will he--produce(d) a valid birth certificate to prove he was, is eligible for Soros' "selection-for-election."  It should be noted here that Soros probably has "a billion or two" invested in his ownership of the executive branch of the federal government.  Soros--through his ownership--is well on his way to punishing the American public for their errogant capitalist practices; even though this very capitalist system provided him the vehicle for making billions-of-dollars, of his own!!
    There's probably not an individual on the planet--legal or illegal--that's not heard about obama's reluctance, nay-refusal, to produce a valid, long-form, U.S. hospital-generated, birth certificate.
U.S. Constitution--Article 1, Section 1, Clause 5:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
   The newly-elected Governor of Hawaii, Neil Ambercrombie pledged to produce a valid obama birth certificate or confirm that none existed:
Hawaii Governor and registered member of the Democratic Socialists caucus, Neil Abercrombie made news in December when he indignantly said he was going to put the Birther issue to bed by producing documents that would shut the Birthers up. Not only that, but Chris 'Tingles' Matthews mockingly called for obama to produce the evidence as well, not because he believed it was a legitimate issue but because he wanted a Birther smack-down. Matthews' two far left guests, David Corn and Eugene Robinson chimed in with condescending agreement.  Small problem. Abercrombie has come out and admitted there's nothing further he can do; he cannot produce the evidence he pledged to produce.
"Yesterday, talking to Neil's office, Neil says that he's searched everywhere using his powers as governor at the Kapi'olani Women's and Children's Hospital and Queens Hospital, the only places where kids were born in Hawaii back when Barack was born and there is no Barack obama birth certificate in Hawaii – absolutely no proof at all that he was born in Hawaii."
{***} Was Soros forced to add "a million or so" to his already expensive ownership if the executive branch to quash the reported failure in locating a valid birth certificate?
Mike Evans told on Wednesday he was remorseful and embarrassed that he appeared to have given the impression that he had discussed the search for obama's birth certificate with Hawaii Gov. Neil AbercrombieEvans, who says he has been a close friend of Abercrombie since the 1980s, appeared on Minnesota's KQRS radio last week and said he'd been told by the governor himself that obama's birth certificate was nowhere to be found.

"Moocher" As Inept, Incompetent As Husband!
    Michelle "The Moocher" obama is proving as inept; as incompetent as her husband, the "Clown Prince!!"  She's spending untold hours of her time AND untold millions of our dollars, flitting about the country whining about fat kids and fat inductees into America's military!!  To what purpose?!?!  I contend that while she wants her own share of 'face-time,' she intends to exert her own level of control over her subjects!! If Americans' health were her true concern, she should:
{****}But will she? Absolutely, not!!  She is and probably always will be, a fascist of her husband's stripe!! 
Campaign for the forceful reduction in the 'dependency class' by getting the welfareRATs "off their dead-asses; onto their dying-feet;"  revise welfareRAT rules to enforce purchases of healthy foods--reducing to ZERO, the purchases of 'high value(like steaks)' items to be resold on the street corners of America.

This'n'That; January Twenty-Seventh [SOTUS Responses]

Ryan's Response To The "Clown Prince"
    Mr Ryan's logical, well thought out, response to the embarrassing blather regurgitated by the "Clown Prince," while very refreshing, may be difficult to put in place.  While obama just continues to read the fascist crap George Soros has programmed into the teleprompter;  Mister Ryan spoke of reasoned, fiscally responsible alternatives to the continued out-of-control spending by the current regime.
    Soros wants to freeze federal spending at current levels; after the levels were foolishly run up during the past year, entirely on dependency programs and failed stimulus spending--successful if the objective was to reward obama's supporters and contributors!  Rep Ryan is recommending that federal spending revert to 2008 levels; scale back the waste of less-than-effective departments; re-gaining control of the national debt which will soon consume the entire American economy.
    Since the Soros/obama regime came into power, domestic spending has increased eighty-four percent (84%).  All this spending did little more than increase the national debt by $3,600,000,000,000.00 (that's TRILLIONS!) and raise the unemployment rate from 14.0% to 17.3%, in just two years.  The regime managed to bring the rate ALL THE WAY down to 16.7%!!  Rep Ryan's solution is to propose a reasonable budget (that the obamacRATics DID NOT DO for FY-2011) to  cut spending, create jobs and prosperity and reform government programs.  Mr Ryan assures us that his, the republicRATs' and the House members' guiding principles are found in the wisdom and spirit of the Declaration of Independence and the words of the Constitution.
Rep Ryan's Response:

Bachmann's Response To The "Clown Prince"
    At the outset we must acknowledge that the Soros media machine attempted to paint Rep Michele Bachmann with the 'brush of the bully;' intimating that Ms Bachmann's ego demanded she speak in response to the Soros/obama blather.  The national pamphleteers also commented that she never looked into 'the camera' during her response.  Nothing could be farther from the truth!!  Ms Bachmann was invited by high muckety-mucks in the 'Tea Party' movement to verbalize their position.  She also paid most of her attention to a particular camera which was recording the event for the organization that invited her response--not the CNN camera which the general public saw in broadcast reports. Ms Bachmann was an early supporter of--and conversely supported by--the 'Tea Party' movement. 
    Rep Bachmann's visual aids--for which the Soros media chided her--served to illustrate obama's ongoing promises as well as his ongoing failures.  I'm sure, had there been any successes--they'd have been highlighted as well.  The "Clown Prince's" explosive additions to the national debt of $3.1 Trillion-in just two short years (end of 2004-$5T; end of 2008-$10T; end of 2010-$14.02T)!
(Blogger Note:  Check this URL for calculations[ ]; from 01/20/2009 to 01/20/2011, the national debt increased by: +/- $3,429,436,000,000 (again-TRILLIONS!)]
    Rather than Soros/obama solution of throwing good-money-after-bad; Ms Bachmann illustrates a half-dozen workable solutions to most of the problems brought on by this openly-fascist regime!

This'n'That; January Twenty-Sixth [State of the Union Show]

2011 S.O.T.U. --Nothing More Than A Redux!
    At the outset I'd like to thank AOL Radio for NOT carrying 'The Show!!'  That being said; on to the hysterics at hand:
   This incompetent boob seems to be more incompetent than the previous incombetent boobs we've had.  He opened 'The Show' with the usual parading of both live bodies and recent memories to jerk a tear or two from the Ruling Class in attendance.  From Miz Giffords to "the dreams of a little girl in Tucson;" all in a row.  The "Clown Prince's" latest blather opportunity primarily focused "like a laser" on bi-partisanship politics, jobs, green energy, education, the economy/Social Security/Medicare-Medicaid, entrepreneurship, foreign affairs and the budget/deficit.
    'The center' is his destination to convince the American voter to once again drink the KoolAid in 2012.  He's making all the 'Soros noises' in tempting the republicRATs to meet him in 'the center' as they start the 112th Congress.  He's already forgotten the 'Tea Party' mandate that gave the House to a new republicRAT majority.  He continues to 'make all the right noises' about working together for the common good of the country.
    Did you know that in an inaugural year there's no State of the Union Show?  I didn't until this afternoon.  In obama's first S.O.T.U.S., after having a full year to 'focus like a laser' on jobs--he mentioned the words 'job' or 'jobs' twenty-nine times.  This year my count was only seventeen times!!  So much for 'laser focusing!!'  He still trots up the same old bullshit about infrastructure jobs, shovel-ready jobs-even after he admitted last year, THERE WERE NO SHOVEL-READY JOBS!!
    He's still hell-bent to rule as a dictator rather than govern as a president.  After all the shady shit Pelosi, Slaughter, et al, pulled to force passage of obamaKare against the will of 60++% of the American people; he's still whining about all the po' folks that'll be left with no health care when his 'signature legislation' is repealed.  It seems he's ready to work with the republicRATs, but only on topics he chooses!!  His versions of economic reform are just a re-hash of some socialist shell-game; as much as possible, hiding the facts as to which program/department actually is charged with the expenses/losses of  Social Security investments, Medicare/Medicaid funding, etc.  This guy's gotta be delusional!!  "The tax cuts we passed?"  He DID NOT pass ANY tax cuts; he merely extended the 'Bush Era' tax RATES for another two years.  It's against every fiber of his fascist being to even consider tax cuts for anyone!!
    To the "Clown Prince," the saving grace for America will be 'green energy.'  How many coal mines have been closed by the EPA?!?  How much off-shore oil drilling has been curtailed by the obama regime?!?  How many millions-of-acres of federal land has been put 'off limits' to oil exploration and drilling?!?  American drivers ain't about to give up their rompin,' stompin' SUVs, sports cars and high powered-go fast sedans no matter how high gas prices go!!  He spoke of America being the first country to have 1 million electric vehicles by 2015.  Another delusional moment!!  Who's gonna spend $40,000 (minus the $8,000 federal subsidy) for a vehicle that might seat four; that goes 40 mph; has a range of 100 miles; with NO plug-in charging network?!?
The next delusional moment came with his comments about a nationwide network of high-speed rail.  After the initial fad wears off, that too will become a multi-billion dollar money pit like the current Amtrack system!!  The American people just are not willing to give up the independence of private automobile ownership!!
The next delusional moment came with his 'challenge' to  have 80% of America's electricity coming from clean energy sources by 2035.  If you thought his economic and fiscal incompetence was bad, you ain't seen nothin' yet, if this goal comes to fruition!!  Talk about bankrupting the country.... this aughta do it!!! 
    Look in your phone book's 'yellow pages;'  compare the number of physists listed against the number of plumbers listed...... notice any disparity, there?!?  Not every high school student/graduate is college 'material;' on any-given-day, there are far more tech-school, OJT, apprentice-type jobs than there are college graduate jobs, AND without the mountain of debt the student is expected to satisfy while earning entry-level wages.  Have you needed the services of a plumber recently?!?  W-H-E-W!!!  It cost me $1,200 plus the ubiquitous tax, to have 2 outside and 5 inside drains 'scoped' to the street.  It took all of two hours!!!
obama's next delusional moment comes when he unconvincingly promotes his next educational boondoggle to 'benefit' the youth of America.  Here's where one must remember that in 'obamaSpeak,' "investment equals increased federal spending!"  Even if 'investment' was truly an investment; the "Clown Prince" speaks 'out'ta both sides of his mouth!' 
Example:  When the communist dictator of China was here for dinner, obama promoted one particular deal where the U.S. trades sensitive commerical and military technology for crappy toys, tainted pet food and defective drywall!!  Now, that's an investment!!
The Education Department was put in place in 1980.  Since this additional layer of bureaucracy in education, the quality of the American educational experience has continued downhill.  Currently, many American high schools are tantamount to 'drop-out mills,' with more and more money thrown at their problems annually.  The federal Education Department's estimated budget continues to grow (from $32 billion (2009) to $56 billion (est. 2010) to $71 billion (est. 2011) while success in the American educational experience continues to decline, with some American schools having a 40-45% graduation rateStill politicians of all stripes can not see that money does not equal success!! In a fair comparison, on a grade-by-grade basis; the better education can probably be found in the 'one-room schoolhouse' of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as opposed to the fiasco we have today. NO federal mandates; effective instruction, management and discipline; NO TEACHER's UNIONS!! 
{*}obama's "Race To The Top" ends at the bottom for far too many of America's students!!  A quote from the 'show:'
Example:  My late father left school in 1926 at the age of 13.  All but one of his school years was spent in a 'one-room schoolhouse.'  He retired in 1975 as the regional lab manager for a major dairy corporation.  I remember that at his retirement, he said that he "made dam' good money" throughout his working life!!
{**}This from a guy who was given practically everything education related, and has never had employment that wasn't funded by the government itself, or some government program or grant!
To all fifty states, we said, “If you show us the most innovative plans to improve teacher quality and student achievement, we’ll show you the money.”

    A portion of this money obama mentions, is to go to educate those illegal aliens he chooses to refer to as undocumented workers, living in the shadows.  While there are just under FIFTEEN MILLION UNEMPLOYED (total unemployment rate: 16.7%!), this incompetent boob is pressing to have those illegal aliens educated in the U.S., remain in the U.S.-- "to staff our research labs, start new businesses and futher enrich this nation."  obama would rather these illegal aliens tread his path and use 'foreign student' status to gain a practically free post-doctoral education!!  Could this be part of the reasoning behind his un-justice department suing Arizona, Arizona-again, Utah, South Dakota and South Carolina.... besides upholding border enforcement and negating the use of 'card-check??'{**}
The "Clown Prince's" next delusional moment comes with his shameless promotion of the 'Soros-inspired investments' designed soley to fiscally bring The United States to it's knees!!  He's so quick to point out that some Asian countries have greater internet access than those here; he fails to attribute this to his fiscal policies that are slowly bankrupting the American citizen who can barely keep "home-and-hearth" together!!  He's equally quick to inform us that some European countries invest more than the U.S. in roads and railways; have faster trains and newer airports; while our engineers grade America's infrastructure with a 'D.'   Might this have more to do with the billions in stimulus designed to reward his regime's supporters and contributors and less with investing in those "shovel-ready jobs" he assured us were ready to go?!?! 
I just can't continue with this S.O.T.U.S. farce!!  This 'rectal cavity' known as the "Clown Prince" has worn me down--down to the point that I just want to go to my 'cabinet shop' in the basement and create something, ANYTHING, that will take my mind off the destruction that he and Soros have in store for this country and the unfortunate souls who inhabit it!!

Til Nex'Time....

Maybe there'll be more analysis later... but don't bet on it!!

This'n'That; January Twenty-Fifth [SOTU Show; Real Name?]

The State Of The 'Onion' Show
    Hell, anyone who has kept a checking account, a credit card account can 'look out the window' and tell 'The State of the Union!!'  We know that the "Clown Prince" is in FULL CAMPAIGN MODE--as noted by his 'Arizona Tragic Memorial Pep Rally--and will give the impression that he's 'leaning right,' willing to work the enemy, without punishing them too badly!!
    I expect that all the blather--if not bad--will be 'splenda-coated;' just a syrupy rehash of what we have all experienced.  I'd like to see the ten-or-twelve networks and major stations, decide who should actually broadcast the 'show' and leave the rest of us to regular programming!!
    My interest is in the republicRATic response-to be given by Rep Paul Ryan (r, Wi-1).  Mr Ryan appears to be a true fiscal guru; truthful on the economy-no matter who's offended.  I found an interesting article wherein both Rep Ryan and the author Peter Orszag defend their individual positions-VERY INTERESTING!!

While Surfing The 'net, I Found:
[These are comments to an on-line article in 'WSJ On-line']
(Approx 5AM, eastern:)  Thomas Dowling wrote:
Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States says:
Everyone in Our government knows the Truth that 0bama does Not qualify to be POTUS.
“No Person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;”

The “Chain of Command” is broken at the Top!
0bama Broke the “Chain of Command”.
0bama Must Be Arrested as a Terrorist to “We the People’ and Our Beloved Constitution for charges including Treason, Espionage, Sedition and Fraud.
Stand by your oath……………The oath is simple and reads:
{*}(A few minutes later:)  Thomas Dowling wrote:
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
New information has come to the fore that explains in detail why President Obama simply does not want to show his birth certificate. The controversy has to do with the idea that the President’s legal name on his birth certificate is Barry Soetoro not Barrack Obama. It also has to do with the idea that all kinds of white lies may have been on his college transcripts so he could qualify for student aide as a foreign student under the name Barry Soetoro. This is a story about potential fraud on a grand scale which is why the President does not want to show his birth certificate.
    Recently, the newly elected governor of Hawaii Neil Abercrombie ran on a platform of proving once and for all that Obama’s birth certificate was legitimate and that he would show it for all to see. It turns out now that Abercrombie is weaseling out and has even suggested that the birth certificate cannot be found. Do you have any idea of the importance of this statement? The state of Hawaii now says it cannot find the birth certificate of president of the United States. Who exactly is it we have holding that office?
    If Barrack Hussein Obama is not his legal name then what implication does that have for all the documents he has signed as president?      Mister Dowling's statements make sense to me, but I'm a believer that the "Clown Prince" is the most incompetent, inept boob on the planet acting as a marionette for George Soros and his 'gaggle of one-worlders!!'

This'n'That; January Twenty-Fourth ['Head-Fake'; Trump]

"Clown Prince:" 'Re-Think' or Head-Fake?!
    In the wake of the drubbing some of the 'Ruling Class' took in the November elections, has the "Clown Prince" finally 'seen the light,' or is his change of attitude just another of his political 'head-fakes?'  obama has spent the last two years as George Soros' marionette-trashing the federal governance and the American economy at every turn!
    Following the advice of his handlers, obama steps up his 'governing-by-executive-order,' thus circumventing the constitutional legislative process.   While entirely legal, Congress has no voice--approval or disapproval--in the "Clown Prince's" edicts.  Now it seems, Soros has finally--albeit temporarily--put one-world governance on 'the back burner' and having the "Clown Prince" make noises about the heavy burden federal regulations play in the lack of economic performance and his dismal job creation record.
    Last week obama issued an executive order and two 'memos,' all dealing with burdensome federal regulations and transparency but only in a 'review' capacity.  Both the general and the business 'public' must be grateful that Soros is even letting the review process go forward!!

"The Donald" Has It Right....
    "You don't give dinner to the enemy..."  Donald Trump spoke out on the current 'un-reality show:' the obama regime!!  Mr Trump's comments indicate he thinks the "Clown Prince" is every bit the incompetent boob lots of Americans believe him to be!  This from 'Fox & Friends (Mr Trump called in to the January 20th show):'

"For us to be holding state dinners for people who are just totally manipulating their currency ... is hard to believe," said Trump. "You don't give dinners to the enemy and that's what they're doing."

If it were up to a President Trump?
"I would say, 'Get off your plane, come to my office and let's talk.'" (Trump has made China the subject of many criticisms of late).
"I would have sent them to McDonalds if we didn't make a deal and say, 'Go home.'
    I'm not sure Mr Trump is 'electable' but I'd urge him to run!!  If he's a true conservative--as opposed to a republicRAT--he may gain traction in the upcoming months.
Til Nex'Time....
{*}The fact is they're laughing at our leadership and we're letting them get away with murder.
If that didn't go so well, Trump had a back-up plan:

The Sunday 'Report;' 01/23/2011

What The National Pamphleteers Don't Tell You!
When To Buy, What?!
    We scoured the net for advice from financial sites, gadget bloggers, and other sources on the best times to buy particular items, ranging from little goods you can stock up on (aluminum foil) to big-time purchases you can easily overpay for in the wrong season (boats). We threw together all these tips, organized them by time frame, and, through the keen eye of one Jason Fitzpatrick, assembled a timeline of some of the major items to keep in mind throughout the year.  Click on the image below for a [....]

A '2006' Article That's STILL Current!
    [...] If manufacturing jobs were declining in China, where manufacturing is growing, then it would not be so bad if they were also declining in the United States, economists and policy people have repeatedly argued. But that is not the case, according to a report commissioned by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.  "The renewed increase in China's manufacturing employment that began in 2002 or before is fueled by private corporations and businesses, both foreign funded and domestically own," writes Judith Banister. Manufacturing employment did take a dip in the late 1990s, due mostly to the downsizing of so many unproductive state-owned enterprises.  The number of people working in the manufacturing sector in China is also far higher than most analysts have estimated, according Banister, a consultant working with Javelin Investments in Beijing, China. At least 109 million Chinese are working in the manufacturing sector, far more than [....]

The Constitutional Roots of King's Dream
    Nearly 50 years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered one of the greatest speeches in American history. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, before thousands assembled, King, with his characteristic vigor, shared his dream for America.  While we all know King’s dream—breaking “the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination” to transform “the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood”—many seem to have forgotten its source. [....]
    It’s a tired refrain—the Founders were racists, the Declaration didn’t really mean all men, the Constitution is pro-slavery. It’s also a gross distortion of our history—as King well knew when he invoked the promise that “all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” at the heart of the Founding.  The Constitution, contrary to what The New York Times would have you believe, does not classify people according to their race. Free blacks in the North and the South were counted on par with whites for purposes of apportionment. As for enslaved blacks, it was the Southern states that wanted to count them as full persons, thereby inflating their numbers in the House. The 3/5ths compromise was aimed at preventing Southern states from benefiting from their slaves for purposes of representation.  Yet this myth of a racist Founding has unfortunately become deeply entrenched in academia and among the chattering [....]

Rep Buerkle 'Hits The Ground, Running!!'
    Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25), freshly sworn-in Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, has co-sponsored her first piece of major legislation, a bill to repeal the President’s health care law.   Yesterday (01/05/'11), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor introduced H.R. 2, “Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act.” The act specifically repeals the Affordable Care Act and any health care related provisions in the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.”
“I support the repeal and replacement of the Health Care-Related Provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 because I believe Congress must replace the massive health care law with smaller, constructive reforms that actually address cost and access,” said Buerkle. 
Congresswoman Buerkle contends,
“New York State is home to many of the finest hospitals in the world, and the people of the 25th District of New York may be assured of my commitment to ensuring that federal legislation does not undermine [....]

Congressmen and Concealed Carry

January 14, 2011
By Robert Costa

  Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah) is well-known for packing heat when he is in his home district. But he’s far from the only congressman who carries a gun. “There are members out there who carry, who don’t talk about it publicly,” he tells us. “It’s for personal-security purposes or their own personal choice.” 
When it comes to concealed carry, Chaffetz says, the House is a “reflection of what goes on in America — some people do, some people don’t. And some choose not to talk about it.”  In light of the tragic shooting in Tucson, Chaffetz says he will continue to carry a firearm to most public events back home. But when it comes to bringing a weapon to Washington, he disagrees with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R., Texas), who is pushing to allow members to carry guns in the District of Columbia and on the House floor.  “I don’t think there should be special laws or rules for members of Congress,” [....]
Olbermann Gets His 'Just Desserts!!'
CHICAGO (MarketWatch) — Keith Olbermann, the outspokenly progressive host of MSNBC’s “Countdown” and bĂȘte noire of right-wing talkers, abruptly stepped down from the cable news network Friday night — almost two years before his contract was set to expire.
    While he gave no specific reasons, Olbermann told viewers in a farewell message that “there were many occasions, particularly in the last two and a half years, where all that surrounded the show — but never the show itself — was just too much for me.”  Olbermann had locked horns with NBC Universal management on various occasions, most recently last fall when he was briefly suspended for making contributions to the campaigns of Democratic candidates. He complained at the time that the network’s policy on the issue was inconsistent.   He was also a relentless tormentor of other cable personalities, including Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck of Fox News, with both men frequently earning his “Worst Person In The World” honor. News Corp.  (NWS 16.91, +0.56, +3.43%) , the parent of Fox, is also the publisher of this report. 
    His departure, after eight years on the air, comes just days before cable giant Comcast Corp.  takes over operational control of NBC Universal in the wake of the company’s purchase of a majority stake in it from General Electric Co.   An MSNBC spokesman, cited on the network’s website, said the impending takeover had [....]

Group targeting Glenn Beck funded by Soros

January 17, 2011
    An organization leading a crusade demanding Fox News fire host Glenn Beck is backed by philanthropist George Soros and is tied to many of the liberal activists that Beck routinely excoriates on his highly rated program, WND has learned.   Jewish Funds for Justice, or JFSJ, a charity that campaigns for social change, delivered a petition with 10,000 signatures to Fox News this past week in protest of a program in which Beck specifically targeted Soros, calling the businessman the “puppet master.” JFSJ deemed the show anti-Semitic.  During the program, Beck highlighted nine people of the 20th century who contributed to what he called “the era of the big lie.” All nine of those figures were Jewish, including psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, columnist Walter Lippman and Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania.
JFSJ is funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute.
    In 2009, the Open Society provided a $150,000 grant to the JFSJ and its associated group, the Funder’s Collaborative on Youth Organizing.  In 2010, the Open Society provided a $200,000 grant to last a period of two years.  JFSJ says it is seeking to create a just, fair and compassionate America, with social and economic [....]

Henry Ford's 'plastic hemp car' from 1941

    We might think that our ethanol and biodiesel "flex-fuel" systems are all very cutting edge, but biofuel development is of course nothing new. Way back in the 1930's, Henry Ford was hard at work in the alt-fuels sector, and in 1941 he constructed a hemp-fueled and hemp-bodied prototype car. The "plastic" body panels were composed of 70% cellulose fibers, including industrial hemp, mixed with More..a resin binder, and apparently they were pretty sturdy: check out this video, in which a guy beats on the trunk with an axe and fails to leave a mark. Industrial hemp won't make you high, kids, but its association with marijuana has historically been a major legal stumbling block.

2009 Article Reveals Soros/obama Mindset
Administration Will Cut Border Patrol Deployed on U.S-Mexico Border

The Border Patrol confirmed this week that it is planning for a net decrease of 384 agents on the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2010, which begins on October 1.
Thursday, September 24, 2009
By Terence P. Jeffrey
    ( - Even though the Border Patrol now reports that almost 1,300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border is not under effective control, and the Department of Justice says that vast stretches of the border are “easily breached,” and the Government Accountability Office has revealed that three persons “linked to terrorism” and 530 aliens from “special interest countries” were intercepted at Border Patrol checkpoints last year, the administration is nonetheless now planning to decrease the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border.  Border Patrol Director of Media Relations Lloyd Easterling confirmed this week--as I first reported in my column yesterday--that his agency is planning for a net decrease of 384 agents on the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal 2010, which begins on October 1.
    A Department of Homeland Security annual performance review updated by the Obama administration on May 7 said the Border Patrol “plans to move several hundred Agents from the Southwest Border to the Northern Border to meet the FY 2010 staffing requirements, with only a small [....]
