Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

The Nigerian Terrorist: Another Obama Failure


The terrorist act--yes it was a TERRORIST attack not a "man caused disaster" that the silver haired gorilla DHS Seccretary Janet Napolitano likes to call these events-- is yet another symptom of the weakness of Barry Obama. The fact is that these animals are completely fired up and feeling powerful again because of the weakness and appeasement that Obama shows in dealing with these events. He will treat is as another law enforcement issue instead of an act of war as it should be. They will treat it as a bureaucratic breakdown and will provide simple lip service, conduct endless press briefings and hearings in Congress all to make us feel like he is actually doing anything about it. All the while the terrorists continue to laugh and scheme for their next attack. Just read the news and intelligence coming out of Yemen--the al-Qaeda camp where this thug trained says they have 300 more of these terrorists ready to go and strike. Does anyone have any reason to believe they are not being truthful??

And on top of that, Obama and co-America hater Attorney General Eric Holder announced they are declassifying millions of more previously classified documents to the public. This will absolutely make us less safe as the last time this was done to this degree we know the terrorists overseas accessed the information to gather and plan future operations. Again, it shows the utter incompetence and/or disdain for America that B.O., Holder and the rest have for all of us and the safety of our country.

And speaking of incompetence, the aforementioned Janet Napolitano should resign immediately for her utter lack of understanding of this event. In fact she went on the TV shows following the event and told all of us the "system worked as it should have." Really?? Well I guess if you want to allow a suspected terrorist on an American flight and then was counting on passengers to subdue the guy when he tries to blow the plane up then the system worked fine. But excuse me, I thought that was YOUR job madame secretary?? You are after all the head of Homeland Security which INCLUDES the TSA. She of course has tried to back off those statements since then but it is laughable because again she oozes incompetence. Napolitano is as unqualified for her position as Obama is to be President. Oh but don't worry, she is on the case when it comes to classifying and issuing reports about home grown "right wing" extremists here. You know, the crazies that love their country, believe in God, own guns, and may have a Ron Paul bumper sticker on their car.

They both have a total lack of understanding of their jobs that may ultimately lead to the the deaths of innocent Americans as we continue to reset to a pre-9/11 mentality.

By the way, I thought that the terrorists would love us after the Messiah Obama was elected and went overseas apologizing for America?? How's that hope and change working out for ya??

Obama-nomics: The New Mediocre

I was watching the local Connecticut version of C-Span today. They had a spokesman from the CT Dept. Labor on there explaining to the state reps that the State of CT would be over $100,000,000 in debt to the Feds by early next year for taking out loans to prop up the state's unemployment benefits roles. The rep explained also that there is no end in sight for this debt as unemployment was not expected to fall in 2010, and in fact it would keep rising. Hmm, I thought the Obama Labor Dept told us that the recession was over and jobs would be coming by Spring?? Just another Obama lie...

But wait, it gets even uglier. The spokesman also said that by Federal law, any state that has unpaid loans to the Feds 2 years in a row is mandated to raise its unemployment tax on employers in the state by 0.3% and the Feds would also raise it an additional 0.3%! And/or they would need the Feds (that means taxpayers in other states) to "forgive" the debt or a portion thereof. Hmm, I wonder if I call Tiny Tim Tax Cheat Geithner and asked him if the IRS would forgive my tax debt this year what he would say? Could one of you genius liberals out there explain to me how an economy will ever be able to recover with this vicious cycle in place??

If you allow that to happen, the situation will only get worse and would resemble a snow ball rolling down a hill. As it continues down, it picks up speed and gets ever bigger and harder to stop in its tracks until it crashes at the bottom and takes everything out with it. That is what we face here in CT, 24 other states, and the US Virgin Islands. (why we are giving money to a non-state for its unemployment pool seems wrong to but that's for another time!).

Businesses cannot and will not absorb these increases. Why do you think they continue to move to more business friendly states and countries? Why do you think they continue to lay people off or at least freeze hiring?? Why do you think they cannot give raises or other benefits to their employees? Is it because they are greedy, nasty Capitalists or is it because they have their own economic survival at stake and will do whatever they need to make sure that happens--just as you hopefully would in your own financial life.

But this continual shake down of the producers and wealth creators in this country continues unabashed and the train is being led by Barry Obama and the rest of the libs both at the state and Federal levels right off the economic cliff. B.O. has definitely lowered the bar and lowered expectations. Mediocre is now considered "stable and satisfactory" after all, we all need to contribute to the "greater good" and shun our own interests and successes so that we can, as Barry said, "hitch our wagons to something bigger than ourselves." The bar is being lowered everyday my friends. After all, the White House is high-fiving each other when the unemployment numbers come in at only 10% vs. 10.2%. This is considered an improvement and don't worry 'cuz Barry keeps telling us--the jobs are just around the corner!

I have no real gripe with people that have worked hard and paid into a system for many years that now, from no fault of their own, find themselves in a position where they need to collect these benefits. That is the system that has been put into place and until we change it, that is the system we live--and die--by. My gripe, which is so simple but yet never talked about, is that if we had a true market based economy, republican style of government as our Founders envisioned, and true pro-business (ALL size businesses) policies in place and a massive reduction in taxes that we would have MUCH less need for the size and scope of government and therefore states would not have to pay crushing salaries, benefits, and pensions for legions of workers being funded by tax payers. Taxpayers would have more money in their own pockets to live with, prosper, and grow their own personal economy and family and wouldn't have a need for government hand outs. Untold millions and billions of dollars could be saved by eliminating the majority of the bureucrats and the agencies they run that suck up our money like a dry sponge being place in a pan of water. The TRULY needy amongst us would be easily helped and supported by both private citizens and, when only absolutely necessary, by government. Again, it's the snow ball down the hill analogy.

But alas, this is the true crux of the problem--governments at any level rarely do with less and when they do, it is only a token gesture. They only continue to grow and consume. This eats up more and more of our GDP and personal wealth and becomes the vicious cycle I mentioned earlier.

And unfortunately, this is the exact desire and plan of Barry Obama and the rest of the liberals. To exponentially grow the size and scope of the government and make as many people dependent on it as possible. Fund the beast by pick-pocketing the nameless and faceless business owner and taxpayer, laundering it through the government inefficiency machine then dolling it out and saying "see, we care about you--look what we are doing for you." But what will happen when there is no wealth or producers left to take from? Where will you get it then? What will be the end result? Here's a hint, take whatever money you have left, buy some gold and silver and then use the rest to buy the Chinese version of that Rosetta Stone language software you see at the mall kiosk.

If It's a War You Want...

The left wing Marxists in this country and the Congress—otherwise known as Democrats—are giddy with glee that they are on the cusp of passing the Senate version of the freedom killing, liberty destroying, Constitution shredding and clearly illegal so-called Health Care bill.

They are going to force Americans at the point of the government’s gun to purchase a product whether they want it or not as a condition of our freedom and citizenship. It is an absolute outrage. They are making deals with YOUR money and futures’ and are laughing all the while at our screaming at them to stop. Polls means nothing to them, it is all about their power and control.

As Iowa Communist Senator Tom Harkin has admitted, this bill is simply the Trojan Horse and a down-payment on a single payer health care. Here are his words on this issue:

“I am a strong supporter of a public option, remain so, and I believe that sometime in the near future we will revisit that issue again and we will adopt a public option. It's not gonna probably happen on this bill because we need the votes to get the big things through, Maggie. It's -- we have to keep our eye on what we're trying to do here. We're trying to cross a demarcation line, this is the way I put it. On one side is health care as a privilege, on the other side is health care as a right. With these votes, with the vote that we'll take before Christmas, we will cross that line finally and say that health care is a right of all Americans. I know a lot of my progressive friends have been upset that certain things weren't in it. What we're building here is not a mansion. It's starter home. But it's got a great foundation. We're expanding health care coverage to 31 million Americans. It's got a great protective roof, and it has room for expansion and additions in the future. But if we don't start the starter home, we'll never get there. So this is not the end of health care reform. This is the beginning of health care reform.”

So all you puke liberals out there who insist that this won’t be a total takeover of healthcare by the government at some point down the road, a member of your own anti-American party betrays you as Judas betrayed Jesus. (sorry liberals, I may have to explain who Jesus is at a later date since you worship only at the altar of big government and not God).

And the most dangerous man in the Obama administration, David Axelrod, is out pimping corporate fascism by saying that the government will be able to dictate and control insurance company costs, executive pay, and lower shareholder dividends!! This is illegal and PURE fascism—that is a private company being completely dictated to by the government. Remember, these companies have not taken government bail out money so how can they do this? Answer: They cannot legally but they will try…

Think abortion will not be covered in this bill?? Think again! The pro-baby killing lobby will not let that happen and sell outs like Ben Nelson will seal that deal. Want more proof? Here is the Secretary of Health and Human Services and a champion of the pro-baby killer lobby (ie –Dr. George Tiller—rest in Hell) on here expectations of “women’s health care” spending in the bill: Click Here to View Sebelius

We will see probably dozens of illegal and unfair items in this monstrosity over the coming weeks as the bill is examined more and broken down. This is just the beginning. For instance, all you under 25 brain dead Obama zombies who think the Messiah is so wonderful, the joke will be on you! Under this bill, the younger you are, the more you will have to pay for your government mandated insurance. In fact, the average young person who is ALREADY paying premiums will see their premiums rise by on average 178%!! Hey thanks a lot for that subsidy you ignorant, uninformed leftist twerp! How’s that liberal brain washing and indoctrination working out for ya now??

The bottom line is that there is a revolution brewing in this country. The producers (those of us who work and pay taxes and employ you leftist ingrates) are being looked at as a never ending source of revenue and belittled as greedy and selfish when we say STOP and want to reverse this beast known as the federal government. We are now considered an after thought and second class citizens by the left wing politicians. Never before have the people that pay the salaries of these Socialists being ignored by these same people. We pay their salaries, but they are working for the people that do not.

This is not the time to be nice and gracious. We must call these people out for what they are: anti-American, unconstitutional, slimes that must be defeated and stopped at all costs. You cannot reason with or give them an inch on this. We may have already slipped to far down the slope to stop our slide into obscurity but we must fight tooth and nail to stop the evil plans that liberals have for all of us.

The final word: If you want a war, liberals, a war you will get!

Ben Nelson, (D-NB). Just the Latest American Sellout

In the tradition of his colleague, Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Senator Ben Nelson has sold his country, his principles (if he had any to begin with--he is a liberal after all!) , and all the future generations of Americans that would have to pay for the monstrous government takeover of health care that the bill he is supporting would ultimately create. How did he come to support it??

Well first of all, he was going to support it all along. The showmanship of resisting it as the "rebel" from Nebraska, the so-called "moderate" Democrat is all just that--showmanship and theatre. Nelson supposedly was holding out for a change in the bill to "guarantee" that the bill would allow states to make their own rules regarding paying for abortions or not under this plan. So his ass buddy Harry Reid inserted this provision to gain his support as the all powerful 60th vote to shut off a Republican filibuster and he says he will vote for it now. He of course is saying that if the conference bill that the House and Senate must work out after passage in the Senate again contains abortion funding mandated by the Feds, that he "reserves the right" to vote against the final bill.

And to add the cherry on the sundae, the true reason Nelson is supporting the bill from Fox "But Nelson also won several other concessions, most notably a commitment from the federal government to fully fund his state's expanded Medicaid population. All states get full federal assistance for the first three years of the bill -- but Nebraska would be the only state getting full assistance afterward. One Democratic official put the cost to the federal government at $45 million over a decade. "
What an absolute joke and disgrace this guy is!!

Does anyone have any confidence that he would vote against it?? How 'bout NO!! Of course he will because he is just another Marxist/Socialist out to secure the power and control for himself and the rest of the Marxists in Washington over you and I. That includes the so-called independent Joe Lieberman from my state of Connecticut who voted for this mess after the "public option" was taken off the table. Like the abortion language, do you have doubt that the public option will be back sometime down the road?? Put money on it!

And don't think for a minute that the abortion mandate won't be put back in down the road after the final bill is passed by future legislation. The radical baby killing left wouldn't ever tolerate it any other way...And the abortion restrictions he did get concessions on are weak at best and do very little to support a true pro-life position. If you want to tell Nelson what you think about his sell out position, here is his contact form posted on his Senate website:

Again, Nelson is a phony and could care less about integrity and morals. He is simply another pro-government leftist hell bent on converting the greatest nation in the world into just another Socialist, European style pathetic, weak country made frozen and impotent by its own crushing regulations and debt that their policies have created. God help us all...

Three of World's Evils: Obama, Abortion, and Debt

Hey have you heard about the latest marketing tactic by the pro-baby killing industry?? This lovely video was put out by Northland Family Planning Centers in Michigan. Their gentle and kind commercial video featuring an intelligent sounding woman (no doubt an Obama supporter) praising the baby killers in their centers as doing “sacred work”! How despicable these people are. Oh, and I forgot the best part. If you go to their website you can print out a $10 internet coupon good on your next abortion!! Oh yippee, now you can have your abortion, then take the $10 and go buy yourself a couple of bottles of Colt 45, get completely hammered, have sex, get pregnant again, then go back for another abortion. Don’t forget to reprint your coupon!! You gotta keep those centers in business after all because it is about the only commerce going on in the state of Michigan these days anyways under liberal rule.

Thanks to Andrew Wilkow for bringing this gem to light!!

In other liberal/communist news, the Marxists in Washington are planning on a vote to raise the debt ceiling JUST FOR THIS YEAR ONLY by a mere $1.8 TRILLION dollars next week. They figure they can attach it to another spending bill or slip it in under cover of night while no one is looking. And of course, what do Democrats say about this?? Well the esteemed Communist from Maryland, Steny hoyer says we racked up this debt and now we have to pay the bills. WRONG CONGRESSMAN!! You America hating Marxists bastards ran up this debt (and continue to do so more every day) but it is US and our children for generations to come that will pay the bills!! So while we continue to be lectured that we have to cut back in our lives, these people continue to rack up tens of trillions of dollars on our national credit card. And they are just getting my friends as universal healthcare and Cap-and-Trade are just around the corner!!
These people will not stop and, like a drug addict, they will keep coming back for more and more of our treasure. WE MUST CUT OFF THEIR SUPPLY AND STOP BEING THEIR “DEALER”! Americans I believe are starting to come around to the fact that these people must be stopped by whatever means necessary before they doom us all—if it isn’t already to late…
As I have said, the scums in Washington will never do with less, but they will ALWAYS expect you to do with less and you are forced to comply with their confiscation of your wealth and freedoms at the barrel of the IRS’s gun! It never even crosses their mind to cut government spending because it is the ultimate source of their power. They will not give it up willingly so we must be prepared to take it from them. This is OUR country, NOT theirs!

And finally, the King of the World, Barack Hussein Obama (MMM, MMM, MMM) received his laughable Nobel Peace Prize today. He gave another boring and uninspiring speech and once again proved how incompetent, weak, and wrong he is in both his grasp of World History and the role that United States has played and must play in the future to truly be the greatest country on Earth. But the best image of this was the picture of Obama and Michelle waving to the adoring crowds from behind a bullet proof glass in Oslo. They were the picture perfect example of the danger of Obama—an incredible narcissist couple that clearly picture themselves as rulers of the world and above all the peon citizens below them. Classic dictators who have bought into their own hype and image of themselves as they are embraced by European Socialists in Norway and join the company of other recent past Peace Prize "winners" such as Al Gore , Yasser Arafat, and Jimmy Carter!

Coming soon—updates on the EPA, Cap and Trade, Copenhagen sell out, and the latest on the Health Care Fraud bill.
