Recently the left wing biased Huffington Post said they did a poll and found that most people including Republicans they polled consider Obama mainstream and the republicans too extreme.WHAAAATTT????? REALLY??????
You mean we’re supposed to accept that a man who when he was a senator said babies who survive an abortion should be left to die as mainstream?
We’re supposed to accept that a man who crticized Bush for spending 4 trillion in eight years as unpatriotic then gives us another six trillion in four years as not being extreme and instead is mainstream?
Obama supported the rmuslim brotherhood in overthrowing Mubarek and now they are under Sharia law,but he’s mainstream and not extreme.
Obama spent 10 days promoting that the attack on our embassy in Libya was the result of this little known video crticizing Mohammed when everyone else said it was a terrorr attack by Al Queda,but it’s the republicans who are extreme.
Obama comes out with a healthcare plan that is all encompassing and complete control of our lives,but he’s not extreme,just the republicans are.
The republicans want lower taxes and less government in our lives and he keeps raising taxes and increasing government,but that’s considered mainstream.
Obama makes Karl Marx look like a right winger.
I recently had this little list of extremeisms by libs and Obama sent to me that proves my point:
1) Only in America could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.
2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federalworkforceis black while only 12% of the population is black
3) Only in America could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code,TimothyGeithner, the head of the Treasury Department andCharlesRangelwho once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are infavorof higher taxes.
4) Only in America can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react byfrettingthat Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
5) Only in America would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.
6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”
7) Only in America could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (MarathonOil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.
10) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
11) Only in America can a man with no background, no qualifications and no experience … and a complete failure at his job … be reelected.
The poll by Huffington Post must have been a big lie and it also shows how manipulated and brainwashed the average person is thanks to the left wing biased liberal media,but Obama is mainstream and its’ the republicans who are extreme. The worst thing I thought was recently when Obama was chastising the House republicans for not going along with his fiscal cliff suggestions he shamelessly exploited the recent Newtown shootings and HurricaneSandy damage by saying,”After all we ‘ve been thru in the last few weeks should give us some perspective oif what’s important and say what the country needs now is compromise.” To him compromise is agreeing with him.That kind of statement is grotesque by any politician. In other words ,”Let’s raise taxes.”
Obama’s not a soul man,he’s a souless man.
Below are afew comments I found on an article from World Net Daily I agree with:
Scripture tells us that the world will grow cold and completely wicked. We have over half of the nation who supports and endorses a man who has granted free abortions. He has thrown his support behind gay-marriage. He worships the Antichrist Islam. This is the man who endorses the teacher’s union and who promotes everything cowardly, vile, murderous, sexually immoral, magic, idolatrous and everything of lies – even his own history. This is the man that America has twice elected to lead them.
We have lost the last best hope of man on earth. Scripture told us it would end this way. We have evil men k!lling our children. We have an evil man with his own k!ll list. His is the father of lies and he wishes to carry out his father’s desires. So, too, does half of the American electorate. They are those who boo the God of heaven.
Ronald, there is a big difference between winning an election and stealing an election. Everything about Oboma is a lie and he has created so much deception to the American people. mr oboma hijacked the election with as high as 140% in some districts of voting, and they counted all 140%. America is led by a criminal, what else would you expect from this muslim kenyan. Just add the mass shooting since he has been in office, there is no mistake that he involved children into his agenda to get the results he wanted from the American people. the little man hates Americans and will do anything to have Americans help him dis-arm America. The mistake will be yours if you do not see what this muslim is doing.
YOU ARE RIGHT ssilv48! HE DID steal the elections! He is an evil man, NOT a Christian he is a muslim, he is a fraud, arrogant, lies constantly, stands up in front of the TV and out right lies to the American people, he is lawless, answers to no one, a dictator, corrupt, crooked! NOT EVEN A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATE! We can IMPEACH THIS IMPOSTER! He is groomed for this job, doing what he is doing!
Yes obama is trying to take away our guns! We cannot let him dis-arm us! That is what Hitler did! We must get him out of office! He cannot run for a third term! Michelle is evil also! They are NOT CHRISTAINS! He is here to destroy America! I think he will try by end of his term! We must buck him and impeach him! He is evil, if we let him stay in office he paves the way for the anti-Christ! Do not let him declare a third term for his self!
He is a liar and corrupt! His backers pay for whatever they want him to do
With the awful heart breaking tragedy in Connecticut, the usual post massacre arguments follow with liberals blaming conservatives for their pro gun views and conservatives blaming liberals for their taking God out of society and promoting more violence thru video games and movies. I could see the argument on both sides, but I am more prone to believe the second argument. As song writer Bob Dylan so sarcastically and succinctly put it in the 60’s “and who really is responsible for any one man carrying a gun? Surely it’s impossible that it’s him.” Well said indeed.
Of course the usual call by politicians are calling for more gun control, especially Mayor Bloomberg in New York calling on Obama to be more strict with gun laws. That being said, Connecticut and New Jersey are two states with the most strictest gun laws in the country. There are currently 300 federal and state gun laws in existence controlling, the sale, use and trafficking of guns and that’s not counting the thousands of local gun laws in existence so why do we need any more? You just have to enforce the current ones.
In 2007, there were 613 fatal firearm accidents in the United States, constituting 0.5% of 123,706 fatal accidents that year. Based on survey data from the U.S. Department of Justice, roughly 5,340,000 violent crimes were committed in the United States during 2008. These include simple/aggravated assaults, robberies, sexual assaults, rapes, and murders Of these, about 436,000 or 8% were committed by offenders visibly armed with a gun.
Recently Detective Mark Furman brought out the fact that no matter what you do a person intent on causing a mass murder will find a way. He pointed out that in Oklahoma City they used fertilizer so do we ban fertilizer? The 9/11 hijackers used box cutters so do we ban box cutters? In China in 2010 a man went on a rampage and stabbed 20 people with a knife and again last week another man stabbed 23 people in China with a knife so do we ban knives? Besides these murderers always chose safe anti-gun sites knowing they can succeed. Airplanes now have gun carrying air martials on board to prevent hijackings and many people argue they should have more armed security in public places like schools and shopping centers.
Adam Lanzo violated three anti-gun laws himself: First, Connecticut law requires a person be over 21 to possess a handgun. Lanza was 20.
Second, Connecticut requires a permit to carry a pistol on one’s person, a permit Lanza did not have.
Third, it is unlawful in Connecticut to possess a firearm on public or private elementary or secondary school property, a statute Lanza clearly ignored.
Fourth, with details on the Bushmaster rifle still sketchy, it’s possible Lanza may have violated a Connecticut law banning possession of “assault weapons.”
Lanza lived with his mother in a 1.5 million dollar home and she legally owned the guns. He further comitted another crime by stealing the guns from his mother. His father is an executive with GE and makes a million dollars a year and lives in Connnecticut with his second wife. Adam Lanza himself was a loner and a tech genius people who knew him said. He was also a ticking time bomb waiting to happen others said and was on medications. He was devastated over his parents divorce too. All of these mass murderers like the Colombine kids and Va. tech gunman were on some sort of mind altering psycotic treating drugs. Adam lanza was most likely on psychotropic drugs which most cause aggressive or violent behavior for all these new supposed illnesse ADD, Sad,and on and on and on,We have to stop drugging our children, we have to take the time to teach them respect for authority,respect for elders, respect for all religions and the concept that their is a power, creator that is greater than all of us,otherwise we create what we have agnostic or atheists who have no respect and no regard for anything, secular progressives believe everything is everything, whats the big deal ? None of these mass killings happened before these drugs came out and psychiatrists say this could be the result of side effects to them. Lanza did have mental issues and was anti-social being autistic with Asperger’s syndrome an anti-social disease. He was obsessed with video games and dressed in black and hung with kids who dressed in black overcoats. Anyone seeing some of these video games today knows how realistic they are in killing bad guys and other kinds of human debris that after spending hours in front of them leaves indelible impressions in their minds.
The website Infowars.com had this interesting statistic about gun control: wherever they have instituted gun bans the crime rate has gone up exponentially, i.e. chicago has the toughest
gun control laws in the usa and the gun crime has gone up 85%,look at the UK, same thing, now look at florida, the easiest state to have a concealed carry permit, gun crimes down exponentially.
One commenter I read had this to say: Abortions murder 100,000 X the children every year than murders using guns do, but the socialists are ok with abortions deaths and don’t cry a tear real or fake for them. This isn’t about preventing murder, it’s about enslaving Americans by removing their last line of defense from tyrany. So true.
Taking away people’s guns isn’t about safety as many liberals like to think, it is about control of the population. The first thing Hitler did is remove all the guns from the people. Saddam did the same.
A very good online budddy of mine summed it up perfectly saying, “Consider this:
A maniac of some kind gets a hold of a nuclear weapon, a biological or chemical weapon and kills THOUSANDS or MILLIONS……….Obviously, governments are not going to get rid of nukes or WMDs of various kinds. Also, the large number of PRIVATE weapons in the US at this time is UNKNOWN. So, the gun control fanatics are not really interested in gun control. THEY ARE FOR PEOPLE CONTROL. THEY ARE FOR POPULATION CONTROL, such as abortion, birth control, euthanasia, etc etc. They are for SPEECH CONTROL where all speech now is PC and if you do not knuckle under, you could lose your job or even be indicted for causing violence by verbal comments. Liberals are for RELIGION CONTROL where you are NOT allowed to practice your faith in public places such as prayer in the schools.
Well, you know what this is all about. IT IS THE CONTROL OF PEOPLE, not guns.
In Michigan the legislature and people voted for the right to work. That is for a person to have the choice of joining a union or not in a job he chooses. Naturally the unions and democrats are all upset at this and using physical violence and bullying tactics outside their rallies. On the floor of the Michigan legislature on Tuesday, Democratic state Rep. Douglas Geiss thundered: “We’re going to pass something that will undo 100 years of labor relations, and there will be blood. There will be repercussions!” I guess being pro choice only applies to a baby being ripped out of the mother’ s stomach according to democrats and liberals.
This is a great loss for liberals and democrats because they lose power and money. The unions are all a big money laundering racket for the government. In his first campaign Obama said if congress passed his 718 billion dollar stimulus package unemployment wouldn’t go above 5% and there would be many shovel ready jobs.”.They passed it and it went up to 10% and hovered around 8% for four years. Obama tried to cover that up by saying 8% is the new norm. I myself wondered where all the jobs were after such a massive stimulus package and Obama said “I guess shovel ready wasn’t as shovel ready as we thought.”
What is now coming out is the fact that most of the stimulus went to the labor and teachers unions to keep their jobs and pensions. They in turn have their employees pay dues to the unions who in turn use much of that money to support democrats and Obama. Hence it is money laundering by the democrat party. Those that oppose it such as Steve Crowder, a Fox News reporter, are beaten up and sworn at outside rallies just for questioning them about their tactics (see link below) ………….. Obamacare is really turning into quite a mess. When he first campaigned on it Obama said it would only cost 900 billion dollars. It grew to costing over a trillion dollars and now is costing two and a half trillion dollars and is not even implemented yet. There are many dangerous parts of it still in there and it is more than just health care, it’s total government control of your life. (see link below) Obama doesn’t know about American values or culture since he grew up in Indonesia and Kenya and was taught that America is responsible for all the problems in the world. All he knows is European Socialism which is what he’s fostering on us thru various ideologies and healthcare reform. He keeps using divisive language and tactics such as “tax the rich” when the rich are already taxed to the max. It is a known fact that 20% of the top wage earners pay 70% of the taxes and 50% of taxpayers don’t pay any taxes. Obama has people so hating the rich and agreeing they should pay more. He thinks that by taxing everyone that is how you create revenue when lowering taxes is what creates jobs and stimulates the economy. When people have more of their money they spend it on things that go back into the economy, but he doesn’t seem to grasp that idea.
Now to help pay for his Affordable Care Act which isn’t so affordable he is putting a $68 fee on everyone’s current insurance policy. He also took 718 billion dolars out of medicare to pay for his Obamcare and wants to takea nother 400 billion to help payo ff ourm assive debt he added six trillion dollars to. Meanwhile he’s taking a 4 week vacation in Hawaii that we are paying for at a cost of 4 million dollars. He also recenly purchased a 40 million dollar mansion in Hawaii. Where did he get that money from? But I digress.
There are many all encompassing government elements to Obamcare that can be repealed if the republicans get off their hands and get some cojones about them.
Grace-Marie Turner is president of the Galen Institute, one of the leading health policy organizations in the country and recently said:
“The Speaker (John Boehner) has made it very, very clear that while it’s going to be very difficult, if not impossible, to repeal the law as long as President Obama is in the White House – because he’d veto it – they have a lot of power to investigate and to defund,” Turner explained. “This administration needs more money to set up these federal exchanges, these marketplaces around the country because states are refusing to do it. And they need money to do that. Well, if the House doesn’t appropriate it, then what’s the administration going to do?”
Turner points out that Obamacare was trumpeted as having a $1 trillion cost over 10 years. That projection has already ballooned to $2.6 trillion, and the program isn’t even up and running yet. She said the administration may try to use some accounting tricks, and that’s where the GOP-led House can play a key role.
Repeal of certain components within the Obama health laws are also possible.
“There are some parts of this law for which there is bipartisan support for repeal, including the medical device tax,” said Turner, alluding to a growing concern among Senate Democrats over the impact of that tax. “Also, this Independent Payment Advisory Board, that is going to become the Medicare rationing board. There’s support on both sides of the aisle for (repeal of) that hatchet attempt and effort to cut back on health-care costs.”
But given the make-up of the incoming Senate and President Obama’s re-election, is there really a chance something like the Independent Payment Advisory Board could be scrapped?
“Absolutely. A lot of Democrats, including people very much on the left end of the continuum are saying that they do not believe that a bunch of 15 un-elected, unaccountable bureaucrats should have control over literally hundreds of billions of dollars in Medicare spending,”(These are the so called “death panels” that Sarah Palin spoke of and was mocked about. They are certainly in there and it is this 15 non elected person panel that decides who gets what treatment according to affordability by the government and your average life span. Those in their 60’s and up would just get minimum care and the younger people would get the best care according to how this panel sees it.) said Turner, who added that a growing number of Democrats also fears the almost complete lack of legislative or judicial oversight for the panel once it’s up and running.
Turner admitted such an effort at repeal would require two-thirds majorities in both the House and Senate since President Obama would be sure to veto the bill.
During the healthcare debate as Obama went to town hall meetings one woman said her mother was in her late 90’s and needed a heart bypass. No doctor would take her because of her age. She finally found a doctor who was so impressed with her yen to live he decided to take a chance and her mother lived to age 105. Obama’s response was “I’d just put her on a pain pill”(see link below). Shortly after that he gave a speech and said senior citizens should forgo expensive surgeries and just be given minimum care.” Meanwhile all of congress is exempt from Obamcare and many companies are getting vouchers to opt out.
As for the resistance movement outside of Washington, Turner said the signs are everywhere. She said many people are making the simple decision to pay the $95 fine for refusing to purchase health insurance instead of spending more than $5,000 on a policy, and businesses are also finding it much easier to drop coverage and pay the fine than provide the coverage mandated in the law. Meanwhile, nearly half the states are refusing to set up new health-care exchanges. And Turner said the vocal opposition of the Catholic Church to the contraception mandate is a key player in all of this as well.
“You’re seeing this Obamacare resistance movement starting with citizens and businesses and religious leaders and states, all saying we can’t comply with this law, and we’re going to find a way around it,
A group has come out with a simplfiied document of what’s in the 2000 page healthcare plan along with a video pointing out the pages for referaece. Here it is :
I just returned from seeing Jimmy Webb and Judy Collins in concert and came away with two vastly different views. For those of you not familiar with Jimmy Webb, he is the songwriter and author of such great Glenn Campbell songs as “Galveston” “Whichita Lineman” and “By the Time I get to Phoenix.” He also wrote “Up, Up and Away” for the Fifth Dimension which he won a grammy for and also did “MacArthur Park” for Richard Harris. Jimmy performed all of these songs and told interesting and humorous stories about his life in song writing along the way. My wife and I had a chance to meet and chat with him after the show, but more on that later.
Jimmy grew up in Oklahoma where his father was an ex marine having served 35 years in the corps and later became a baptist minister and is still around today at age 90. Jimmy told about meeting Glenn Campbell for the first time and said although their politics are on opposite ends of the spectrum it’s music that brings people together and not politics. He said Glenn is a terrific person and he would not be where he was today if not for Glenn. Jimmy also commended Glenn on his brave fight with alzheimers and for continuing to tour with it. He also thanked the military folks and their families in the audience for their brave service to country.
Jimmy played beautifully on the large Steinway piano the theater provided for him and thanked the theater for supplying it for him. He told a humorous story about when he got a grammy for Up,Up and Away which was based on a balloon he built after getting his ballonist license and pilot’s license. He said KOMA, the largest radio station in the country out of Oklahoma at the time was playing it and suddenly they stopped saying it was about drugs. Jimmy called his father from Calif. and he said his dad rushed over to the station and must have given them one of his tough marine/baptist minister speeches because they suddenly started playing it again, “Everyone should have a dad like that,” he said smiling.
Jimmy told about meeting Richard Harris in Ireland and England and hitting the pubs with him in every village they came upon. Jimmy wrote MacArthur Park for Richard Harris and performed it as his finale last night. He played an extended version of it and hitting the keys with finess and so much power that it sounded like several pianos were playing at once instead of just one. It literally brought the house down.
After Jimmy’s set, Judy Collins came on and she was much different. This is the fourth or fifth time we’ve seen her in person and we usually take in her Christmas shows. She usually comes out singing upbeat carols such as Joy to the World, Jingle Bells and Hark the Herald Angels Sing and does several folksy songs and her signature song ‘Both Sides Now.” But none of this was there this night. Instead she opted for more somber, long, heavily worded songs that I never heard of that appeared to be reflective on life. Her voice is still one of the most angelic, melodious high pitched voices I have ever heard and she can really hit those high notes and hold them, but the songs I felt were very depressing. There were a few light moments when she sang the hit song from the 40’s “Where or When” which she did beautifully saying her father used to work at a radio station and bring records home and sing along with them. She also did a nice rendition of “Ghost Riders in the Sky” from when she listened to country records growing up. That’s a favorite of mine too, but she went into totally new songs that were heavily worded and unusual about reflecting on life in general that I never heard and could not get into. She ended her set with a song she did last year about her mother who recently died called “She’s a Lady” and tells about her mom always being a lady even unto death and tells about Judy being by her bedside when she died. It’s a real, real, tearjerker and the man sitting next to me was wiping away tears and sniffing. She then went into “Send in the Clowns” and ended with the Beatles “In My life.” Although her voice is clear as a bell, very angelic and melodious, I just felt very down after this set and felt she should have ended on a more upbeat and positive note especially this time of year. Perhaps she’s reflecting on her own mortality and life now that she’s 72. She looks great and has amazing posture when playing the piano or standing with her guitar and shapely legs in tight fitting pants.
After the concert my wife and I were one of the last ones to leave and we stopped by to see Jimmy Webb in the lobby who was selling his latest cd there. We chatted for a while as he signed his cd for us and shook his hand and I found him to be very out going, sincere and friendly and very upbeat and affable. He has that mid-western Oklahoma charm about him.
In my last blog I mentioned the fact that Romney lost the election so I guess that meant a lot of people want free stuff from Obama. I was immediately attacked by critics calling me “racist” and saying “a lot of white people who voted for Romney are getting free stuff too.”
First of all I never mentioned any race in my blog . I just said “people” in general. In fact I have many friends and family members who are hard working who voted for Obama so I didn’t mean all Obama voters want free stuff. There are numerous you tube videos of people both black and white being interviewed outside welfare offices saying they don’t intend to look for a job as long as they get their “Obama bucks” as they call their welfare checks. Also let’s not forget the woman who said “Obama was going to pay for her mortgage and pay for the gas in her car.”
As far as people who are getting free stuff and voted for Romney, I would be willing to bet they voted for him knowing he is a job creator being the former CEO of one of the largest international corporations there is in Baine Capital and he personaly helped a lot of people out and they were in their predicament because of Obama’s policies which caused them to be laid off.
I did a little research on the subject and found that there are these 11 States now that have more People on Welfare than they do Employed! And Surprise surprise 7 of these States voted for Obama. (see pic above) As far as calling me a racist, more whites are on welfare than blacks even though Obama increased the unemployment and food stamp roles by at least 12 million.
Also check out the following article I found in the Chicago tribune explaining the ratio between whites and blacks and Hispanics on welfare.
Despite prevailing stereotype, Whites, not Blacks, collect greatest share of public aid dollars
SAY the word “welfare” and immediately the image of the lazy Black welfare queen who breeds for profit surfaces in the minds of those who have come to believe the hideous stereotype. It is a myth that persists despite government figures and authoritative studies showing that Whites overwhelmingly reap the lion’s share of the dole.The image of the Black “welfare cheat,” public aid advocates say, is based on misconceptions about poor minorities. The notion, they say, comes from society’s resentment of seemingly able-bodied people getting paid for doing nothing
: Some 61 percent of welfare recipients are White, while 33 percent are Black, according to 1990 Census Bureau statistics, the latest figures available.
When it comes to welfare, perceptions have often trumped reality. Among the facts:
•Though blacks are disproportionately represented among food stamp recipients, far more whites receive such assistance. When recipients identified themselves by race in 2010, 34 percent were white, 22 percent were black and 16 were percent Hispanic, the Agriculture Department said.
•Food-stamp spending has indeed increased under Obama, but its steady climb began under President George W. Bush.
•Blacks form a slight plurality in Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, a system that offers cash assistance and is much smaller than the food stamp program. Of families receiving TANF help in 2009, 33 percent were African-American, 31 percent were white and 29 percent were Hispanic.
•Since passage of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act, those seeking cash assistance have faced strict work requirements and a five-year lifetime limit.
•In some welfare categories, rolls have dramatically declined. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which runs the TANF cash assistance program, about 1.9 million families received TANF funds last year, down from a record 5 million families in 1994.
The percentages vary from state to state and a majority of the country receiving and abusing benefits are White Americans. You can call it whatever you like when a minority requires assistance, just keep in mind that many people who receive benefits are working poor, single mothers, college students, etc. Everyone is not sitting on their butts, everyone is not lazy. This system was put in place originally to help everyone except minorities. There are lazy, drug-addicted welfare abusers in every race. The media just chooses to exploit one race more than others. The real issue is making the deadbeat dads in this country pay for their children and raising the minimum wage to a livable wage! Back up off the stereotypes and racist logical fallacies. It serves no good in the long run.
I Hope this settles it!!!
