Double Standard? You Decide.

Death Threats Against Bush at Protests Ignored for Years

I can't begin to understand the double standard shown in this article. My favorite is the Obama-Joker shirt vs. the "Execute Bush" shirt. Absolutely shameful and hypocritical.

This post will probably end up on the White House's "watch list".

So you want universal health care....

Look around. Everyone who has it is frantically trying to run away from it, while we skip down the primrose path to our doom. Have a look how incredible AWESOME Canadian health care is -

the Socialism Experiment...a test case

This came around in emails, and whether it is true or not, the truth in it is right on, and it threatens us today:

"

An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class.

That class consensus was that socialism worked – no one is poor and no one is rich, a great equalizer.

The professor proposed an experiment on socialism for this class: All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade.

After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little for the first test studied even less, and the ones who studied hard on the first test decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

The average on the 3rd test was an F. Ouch. To the students great surprise, all failed.

Test scores plummeted as bickering, blame, name calling caused hard feelings. Finally, no one wanted to study for the benefit of anyone else.

The lesson: socialism ultimately fails because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but, when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.

Not very complicated, at all …"



Remove the profit motive, and innovation and expansion cease. There is no reward. Trying to equalize everyone does not mean that you are trying to lift the lower income to the higher, it means that you destroy the higher income, and bring them down to the lower.

The Soldier Vs. The Congresswoman...



It seems that we are waking up. This soldier tells it like it is. The "welfare clause" of the Constitution was NEVER intended to include health care for all.

We Are Coming!

I think this woman's letter says perfectly what is brewing inside of us all. This isn't an issue between parties, it's an issue with principle. You can read the full letter here.

Using words to mask deceit...flawlessly.

Now, I can't stand Rachel Maddow any more than most can. But she hit the nail on the head with this assessment of Obama's two-face speech. In one breath, he rails on the Bush administration in plain words, and in the next, he proposes even greater constitutional usurpation with his own "ad-hoc legal startegy". This man is a quintessential politician - making words work for him, and confuse you into believing that he is right.

To those that voted for him: you are getting the "change" that you wanted. Now you have to live with the consequences of that decision.

" I don't know how you feel...but I'd rather be dead than to lose my liberty. I have no fear we'll ever lose it because of invasion from the outside. But I do have fear that it may slip away from us because of our own indifference, our own negligence, as citizens of this land. And so I plead with you this morning that you take an active interest in matters pertaining to the future of this country. And if the time should come when you're associated with groups that take delight in tearing down our American way of life, when they seem to enjoy pointing out the weaknesses of our free-enterprise system, and it has weaknesses - it has weaknesses because it is operated by men and women who are full of weaknesses - but when those times come when it's criticized, if you'd just keep in mind the fruits of the system, the great blessings that have come to us because of our American way of life - no group of people have ever attained the standard of living which is ours - and so let's become acquainted with what has been accomplished. It's alright to criticize. It's alright to try to improve our American way of life. But in doing so, let's not surrender, let's not give up, let's not jeopardize that system which has made America great."

That's what we need!!!

Millions and Millions of new jobs created by using 

SOLAR PANELS and WIND TURBINES!!!???

Obama is really beginning to freak me out.  Not in the "gosh this guy is a cook" way, but in the "I'm just going to tell them this stuff, and they'll play along because they don't get it" way.  Our President (yes, he is still my president) has the audacity to believe that jobs are created by the government, and that "going green" will save our economy?  I can't believe what I am hearing.  Please, Please, PLEASE watch this clip.  It reminds us of what is REALLY happening...The government is poised to take over the freedoms that we hold dear.  They want to remove the profit motive from work.  They want to provide health care.  They want to regulate banks and PRIVATE COMPANIES!  This is what I am talking about when I say it is scary.  

There are 3 types of people in this country:
  1. Those who WANT the government to take over.  These are usually the people with no moral compass, with no work ethic, envious, and no personal pride.  They want it done for them, they want it when they want it, and they don't want to have to earn it.  Personally, I can't stand these people.
  2. Those that want their freedoms, but aren't willing to defend them.  These people are worse than the first.  At least those people are fighting for what they believe in, even though it is wrong.  These people will soon find the freedoms that they hold dear taken from them, and there won't be anything left.
  3. Those that love and cherish their freedom, and are willing to fight for those God-given (yes, I said GOD ina public setting) rights.  
The created cannot exceed the creator.  We, the people, created the government for us.  They have now become, or are trying to become the master.  If we do not act soon, all of those freedoms that we cherish will be taken from us.  Acting means speaking out, writing letters or emails, calling you senators, and talking with friends, educating them of the perils we face.  Imagine if group #2 actually got up and fought.  The first group would not have a chance.

Sun, Spring, Warmth....Beautiful!


Yesterday, my office mate, Dave Malan, came back in from the office noting that the temperature had risen from 15 to 75, the smog had lifted, and people were whistling and singing on the sidewalks. He even hit a guy with his car, but the man stood up, shook it off, looked at the sun and took a big, deep breath. When Dave asked if he was alright, the man replied, "Of course I am! Thanks for asking!" Dave was a bit confused. But as he came back into the office, he was beaming, and he asked me, "Barry, do you feel that? It's so warm! I'm full of joy!" I was a bit confused, and then he reminded me....it was inaguration day, and all our worries would now go away because Barack Obama was now our president. I immediately felt all warm and cozy inside, confident that all my worries about the economy and society would now all melt away, just like the 2 feet of snow outside.

This may come as some sort of surprise to some who read my blog (all three of them), but I actually am pulling for President Obama. I hope he does a good job. Now, doing a good job to me is different than what he might consider a good job. But still, I wish him all the best. I hope he sees that now that he is in the hotseat, things may not be as easy as originally thought. But I wish him the best. That may change when my taxes start going up, or businesses start moving overseas more and more, or my children are forced to have school programs about gay pride day. We'll have to see.

But Mr. President, you got what you wanted, now, it's time to prove yourself. Will you prove yourself a slave to public opinion, or a standard-bearer of values and freedom? I'll be watching.
