Socialist Welfare is Crap!

The more I read about the entitlements that Democrat-Socialists are giving to the people in this country, legal or not, the more Ticked OFF I get!

I own my business. I work over 60 hours per week. I CANNOT spend as much as each welfare family receives!  I can’t, because I don’t make that much! Based on this article: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/welfare-spending-equates-168-day-every-household-poverty_665160.html, entitlements are paying $168.00 per day.

We just had to stop our family health insurance because the rate hikes were too much for us. Even if we paid those prices, with our house payment, car payment, etc. there is no way we can meet that much money.  And to top it off, we do NOT qualify for ANY benefits from the government. This includes free lunch from the schools.

Adding insult to injury, I know a family that just bought a very nice house, five bedrooms on nice waterfront acreage.  He has not worked in YEARS, by choice, and she only works part time.  Yet they qualified to buy this beautiful home. Yes, of course, they receive aid from the state.

I met a man a few nights ago in the grocery store. He had a cart full of groceries in front of me. The clerk used a coupon to reduce the cost of an item in his cart. He got VERY upset, because the use of that coupon cost him TWO PENNIES in cash. He was paying for the entire cartful with food stamps, and had to pay the tax on the coupon, the whopping two cents, in cash. He did not feel that was justified, especially since the SECOND food stamp card he showed me, from the neighboring state, did not charge him tax on coupons.  Yep, he receives benefits from TWO different states, and claims it is perfectly legal!

I know a family that has been on Welfare for nearly 20 years! They live in subsidized housing; receive food stamps and any other aid handed to them by the state. They have NO plans to get off the system, after all, they are allowed.

There are many more stories of these abuses. Every state has them. THEY MUST STOP!

It is perfectly acceptable to assist someone when they are down and need a hand up. That is what good people do; they help each other when in need.  Everyone will need a hand at sometime in their life. Everyone should help others, if they can, during their life. It is how I live my life, and how I raise my children.

However, I do NOT believe that anyone has the right to live on Welfare, or other assistance, for an INDEFINITE period of time. Help is there for you, in emergencies, to get you BACK on your feet. Not to take the place of you walking for yourself!

After hearing of new abuses nearly every day, I am ready to Stop ALL Entitlement programs permanently! Too bad, so sad… get a job!

What would happen if America goes off the Fiscal Cliff?

Obama actually gets what he wants! He gets to cut 10% of the Military, and raise taxes across the board! This is actually what he wants to do. He can crow until next year about saving the middle class, but the truth is plain to see. He wants more money to spend, until America is forced to turn to the United Nations to save its sorry butt. The only way he will get the money he wants, is to tax everyone, including the middle class! The more people give to him, the more he can spend. That is also why he wants unlimited control over the Debt Ceiling.

BUT, Obama also gets what he DOESN’T want. 10% cuts across the board, also mean cuts to ObamaCare. It also means cuts to Welfare and Food Stamps. It means 10% cuts from EVERYTHING.

The problem is the Unlimited Power that Obama is demanding!

Obama has taken the first steps to becoming a dictator. He didn’t do it like Morsi, but he did it all the same. He will take control of the Debt Ceiling, thereby having NO ONE able to rein him in on his spending. He will spend and spend until America implodes!

Our system was set up for checks and balances, to keep any one man from doing what Obama is attempting to do. The problem is that there are so many in government that are trying to HELP him! Even our own GOP are trying to help him, just look at Boehner.

I do not think that increased taxes across the board are unfair. I think everyone should pay, not just one segment of our citizens.  I also believe that major spending cuts are necessary. The government, and Obama, must STOP spending what we do not have! I believe that “going over the cliff” in, and of, itself is not such a bad thing.

If it were any other administration, yes we could have a problem. But, with this administration, we will NEVER get any other spending cuts without Cliff Diving! We need to stop the unlimited spending!

What I am worried about, is giving King Hussein all the unlimited power that he is dreaming of. He must be stopped!

Goodbye to the Fourth Estate

Journalism was an honored and respected profession, at one time. It was the chosen profession of Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite. Murrow is the most distinguished figure in the history of American broadcast journalism. He is honored within the profession as having “set standards of excellence that remain unsurpassed.”[1] Cronkite was often cited as “the most trusted man in America”. [2]These accolades were not undeserved.

Because of the importance of journalism in society, most members of the fourth estate abide by certain professional and personal ethics. Many journalists attempt to cultivate an air of neutrality, focusing on reporting of the issues as they are so that people can judge the facts for themselves.[3] It is vital to the integrity of the profession to keep neutral and uphold the standards set by these icons.

But, Journalism is no longer this worthy profession. The members of the press have transferred their allegiance to Power. Power is more important to them than truth or ideals. Spin has become the norm for both politicians and Journalists. Why is that? What is wrong with the truth?

A recent Gallup Poll showed only 21% of Americans has confidence in television news, a new low. [4] After watching the coverage of the recent election, I can understand it. Think of Candy Crowley and her obvious support of Obama in the second debate. Some call it a mistake, but I say there are too many clues, and it points to a deliberate act.

It seems to be an open secret among journalists that the mainstream news is propaganda.[5] It has recently been exposed that CNN takes monetary payment from the Obama administration for selective news stories. [6] With all of these examples, and many, many more to be found, why is it such a surprise that Americans cannot possible trust the Media?

The majority of the Main Stream Media (MSM) are wealthy Socialists that revel in their power to control every aspect of this country. When they decided that the time was right for this country to turn Socialist, they picked their candidate and they controlled all the spin to get him elected. They showed absolutely NO concern for the people of this country. They wanted to prove their power, not for the good of the people, but for the good of themselves.

When their candidate proved to be less than they expected, and should never have been nominated for a second term, let alone reelected, they proved that they still have the power, and they are really in control of this country. Obama’s history, his record, the actual facts of his first term, should have kept the democrats from even nominating him for a second term. But, with the MSM and the spin they did, we have people believing he is the best thing since sliced bread. Thanks to journalists that have absolutely NO ethical standards at all!

There are new Social Media sites, such as Twitter, United Patriots[7], etc. It is no wonder that people are turning more and more to these sites for their news. Americans want someone they can trust. Who will fill that role? It certainly will not be the MSM. They have proven, repeatedly, that they cannot be trusted.

Something Positive?

I have been trying to come up with something positive about our country now. I am Positive that it is not the same country that I have lived in all my life. I am Positive that it is not the same country I taught my children to treasure. I am Positive that it will never be the same again.

I was raised to fight Communism. The Cold War was the Bad Times. We celebrated when it ended! Now, teachers are card-carrying Socialists. They are indoctrinating our children into Communism. Our Government had a well-thought out, and well-executed, plan to turn this country into a Socialist/Communist State. They carried out their plan, they succeeded.

Mitt Romney & the GOP were not strong enough to even use the word “Socialism” during the campaign. They were not strong enough to fight Fire with Fire. They were the “nice guys”. We kept telling them not to roll over like they did, but, they knew best, as we can see. We voted for Mitt to be our “Champion” and he gave up.

We need a Champion! We need someone who is not afraid of Obama, or Reid, or Pelosi, or Jarrett, or of “payback”. We need someone with enough backbone to not be afraid of being called Racist or Sexist. We need someone who is not afraid to admit that Capitalism is a good thing. We need someone who is confident that standing up for what you believe to be right is more important than being what society calls Politically Correct. We need someone to Stand Up for us when the order to Stand Down is given.

I admire Sen. Graham and Sen. McCain. They have put forth an amazing effort to search out the truth on Benghazi. They will be stopped by Obama, of course, probably by an Executive Order, but at least they have tried. They do not have much support, even from their own party, but, they have the support of us little people. They are to be admired for their efforts.

The Conservative leaders we have now, such as Speaker Boehner, have fallen into the trap that was set for them, where they are NOT strong enough to fight for OUR Rights. Boehner knows that we have lost. He is currently looking to work with the Dems/Libs/Commies in Washington because he now has to look out for himself and his job. And he will do this under the name of Bipartisanship.

The Conservatives and Libertarians have NO Champion. We have been thrown under the bus so our leaders can secure their jobs within the administration. They need to work with Obama, or the Senate and the House will be disbanded. Yes, that will be next. Watch Morsi in Egypt and see what Barack will do next.

Yes, what is happening in the United States is deliberate, systematic, and incomplete. I believe that we have seen our last Presidential Election. I believe that Obama will give himself ultimate power, then, turn this country over to the United Nations. I believe that Boehner knows this and is afraid to push for ObamaCare to be included in the Fiscal Cliff Talks for this reason.

I am Positive that we are now a Socialist Nation.

I am Positive that Obama will attempt to wipe out Christianity as well.

I am Positive that True Americans will not STAND DOWN for this…

Bar Stool Economics ~ our tax system explained.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and
the bill for all ten comes to $100 and If they paid their
bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something
like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed
quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the
owner threw them a curve. “Since you are all such good
customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of
your daily beer by $20.” so drinks for the ten now cost
just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way
we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected.
They would still drink for free.But what about the other
six men – the paying customers? How could they divide
the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair
share?’.They realized that $20 divided by six is
$3.33.But if they subtracted that from everybody’s
share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each
end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner
suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s
bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to
work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $50 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before.And the first
four continued to drink for free.But once outside the
restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

“I only got a dollar out of the $20,”declared the sixth
man. He pointed to the tenth man,” but he got $9!”
“Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only
saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got nine times
more than I!” “That’s true!!” shouted the seventh man.
“Why should he get $9 back when I got only two? The
wealthy get all the breaks!” “Wait a minute,” yelled the
first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all.
The system exploits the poor!”

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks,
so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But
when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something
important. They didn’t have enough money between all
of them for even half of the bill!

And that, ladies and gentlemen, journalists and college
professors, is how our tax system works. The people
who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from
a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for
being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore.
In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the
atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

MODERN VERSION OF THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well-fed while he is cold and starving. CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? …

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green… .’ ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, “We shall overcome.” Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake.

President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight. Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize and ramshackle the once prosperous and peaceful neighborhood.

Abortion Story

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: ‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.’

So the doctor said: ‘Ok, and what do you want me to do?’ She said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’ The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.’

The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!’ ‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb. The crime is the same!

Love says, ‘I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person.’ Abortion says, ‘I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself.’

Benghazi? Subject Closed.

Susan Rice is the US Ambassador to the United Nations. She has sworn to uphold our constitution. She has LIED to the American people. She is not trustworthy.

She has done everything her President told her to do.

That’s it in a nutshell. Susan Rice is representative of our government. Our President has put himself above the law, and now has put his cronies in government above the law as well. They are allowed to bend and break the law, and are never held accountable.

Start with Fast & Furious. Eric Holder is the top law enforcement in this country. What happens when he breaks the law? Nothing, of course. If questioned on his illegal activities, our President just seals the records. Subject closed.

What about the numerous cronies of Holder? Same thing. Subject Closed.

How about the Massive amounts of voter fraud? This should be automatically investigated by our government. Nope. Won’t even discuss it. Subject Closed.

Now, let’s talk about Benghazi. The White House knew about the attack as it happened. They watched this in real time. They knew it was a Terrorist attack, and yet, they LIED to the American people and blamed it on a video. Obama said it. Clinton said it. Patraeus said it. Rice said it. Over and over again they said it. They made us pay $70k for an ad saying it, played in the Middle East. They said it to the families of our fallen Americans. Over and over again they said it. Obama said it to the UN General Assembly, SIX times in the same speech.

But, during the Presidential debate, Obama claimed to have called it a Terrorist Attack from the first day. Before he blamed the video? Before he had Hillary give her speech on TV? Before he made the TV ad for the Mideast? Before he went to the UN? …Before he had the director of this offensive video jailed?

Face it, I expect that there isn’t a single person in this country, with the possible exceptions of Geraldo Rivera and Chris Matthews, who really thought the attack was caused by the video. Everyone knows that the President LIED to us. We can also figure out why he lied to us. It doesn’t fit with his being the Prez that conquered Terror. Al Qaeda is on the run, they are defeated.

We know what happened. We know why it happened.

The question would be “What are the consequences”?

Consequences?

For Benghazi?

 

Subject Closed.

UPDATE: National Strike, Part 2

Since linking the original article to Twitter, I have been suspended from that site. It appears that a Liberal does not want me to post conservative views and issues. I have received quite a bit of support from fellow conservative Patriots. Whether or not they agree with the concept of a National Strike, they fully support my freedom of speech, and right to post.

No one wants a Chicago Thug to get away with decimating the integrity of our government! We cannot let this happen! If you are still unsure whether or not it happened, check the following links, and then decide:

Here is an excellent site that is documenting the accusations of voter fraud, with links to petitions for recount: http://obamavoterfraud.blogspot.com/

And Michelle Malkin’s list of voter fraud: http://michellemalkin.com/2010/10/25/voter-fraud-watch-theyre-at-it-again/

These are just 2 sites of many. Do the fact-check.

As citizens of this great country, our laws allow us to questions everything done here! This includes Presidential Elections. If we feel that the election was unfair, either by voter fraud, miscounted votes, or any other reason, it is our DUTY to demand a recount, or a new election if it is determined to be necessary. This is done through the Secretaries of State for the affected states, mostly the swing states. If the said Secretaries of State have not certified the votes, then the election results are not valid! We must petition these states to demand a recount. We must petition these states to investigate the accusations of Voter Fraud!

Additionally, we can petition the White House to insist on the recount. There is a petition underway, here: http://wh.gov/9n5n Please go and sign it.

But, what if all our requests are ignored and swept under the rug? What can we do? WE CAN GET THEIR ATTENTION! We can call for a National Strike. A LOCK OUT! We can shut down our businesses for 3 days. We need not shut down permanently, but just long enough to get the attention of our government. Yes, 3 days can make a difference.

Not just Employers can take part. Everyone can participate! Every citizen that believes we have been given a raw deal should be active in this protest. If we refuse to conduct business in this country for 3 days, we can have a major impact! If we spend those 3 days in front of our federal buildings, they will be forced to take notice! If we do this during one of the busiest weeks of the year, the impact will be even greater!

I call for a National Protest, A LOCK OUT for the week of December 3-7, 2012. If you cannot participate for the full week, try for 3 days, or at least the first day. Spend those days in front of your Federal Buildings, with signs showing your disagreements. Help us get the recount!

This needs to be a National Movement. One or two communities will not accomplish what we need. If the country comes together to protest this false election, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Share this with your friends. Post it on your Social Media sites. Talk about it with the news people in your community. Make this go viral. Let’s get our voices heard!

Obama has an Agenda

During the election, there were many fears from Conservatives about possible outcomes. Some of these thoughts strayed to what Obama would do during his 2 month-lame duck time, if Romney were to be elected. Horror stories ran rampant over the social media sites. I heard theories that went from who he would pardon (Eric Holder and the Blind Sheik) to pushing the button for WW3 and annihilation.

It is painfully obvious that his agenda includes a Socialist country, third world, if you would. He does seem to want one global government, the United Nations. He does not want Israel to exist, though whether they are conquered with or without Iranian Nukes, I have yet to guess. He seems to believe in the Muslim Brotherhood, not discounting Sharia law, though I have a hard time visualizing Michelle falling into line with that one.  There are more possibilities.

The issue now, however, is reflected on his current reelection. He no longer has to worry about a time limit. He no longer has to worry about another election. He has much more “Flexibility” now, as he told Putin.

Obama has shown a great disdain for our American system of government, of which he is the leader. He has repeatedly thwarted our laws, believing they do not apply to him. He has ignored our Congress, as if they mean nothing. He issues Executive Orders to bypass Congress; therefore he runs the country as a dictator. If he wants to run an Illegal Operation, he just goes ahead and does it, be damned with the consequences. If he is found out, he just issues another Executive Order to “classify” the information and he goes about his merry way. (Think “Fast & Furious”)

How do you turn a country Socialist?

The first task is to get the citizens Dependent on the Government. There are 47 million people on Food Stamps alone, increased by 15 million in the last 4 years. These figures do not include Welfare, Medicaid or SSI. Make the citizens unable to survive without the government. Included in this is to take over their Health care. When the citizens need the government just to stay healthy, that invokes great fear.

Second, is to own the industry of that country. The government currently owns Amtrak and General Motors. Obama is going after the energy companies as well. He seems to own the Media, as well. It has already been discovered that CNN has accepted monetary payment to run, or not run, the stories that Obama chooses. He will not stop there.

Third, and very important, is to take away the weapons. Do not allow the citizens to rise up against the government. Do not allow them the weapons to do so, or the means to defend themselves against the government, or anyone else. Obama has started this with his UN Arms treaty the day after the election.

Benghazi –

Under any other President, the attack on Benghazi would be a real problem. It would have sunk anyone else, happening so close to an election. But, thanks to his seeming ownership of the Main Stream Media, he ignored this issue and no one was able to overcome that. Not the citizens, not any journalist, and not the Senate or Congress. There were some small efforts, but they were small. Obama has such a tight grip on this country that even our Senators and Congressmen are AFRAID to bump heads with him. They are allowing him to turn our country towards communism. They are allowing him to get away with Fast & Furious. They are going to show a token investigation on Benghazi, but we all know how far they will get. Nowhere.

So, we come to the real question. Obama has an agenda, of which he is implementing quickly. With our fiscal cliff looming over us all, he decides to go to Burma. Burma? Really? Is he meeting Putin there? It is all part of his agenda.

I believe he does think of the ‘outside’ chance of Impeachment. This could be why he is hurrying his agenda along. Whatever he wants to accomplish, he is not going to wait four years to get it done. He wants, or NEEDS, to get it done now.

Congress needs to stiffen their backbones and ACT NOW! Impeachment is no longer a possibility. It is a NECESSITY! It also needs to be done quickly. Start with Obama, but don’t stop there. Grab everyone that is accountable. Joe Biden, Valarie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, etc. They are all a part of this agenda.

If you are not sure if I could be right, ask Brian Terry, Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty. They should have an opinion.
