Correct identification of the political species and sub-species is paramount to understanding those you encounter in the wild. Not all progressives are liberal; not all liberals are progressive. Not all conservatives are constitutionalists; not all constitutionalists are conservative. The political world is an ever changing landscape of naturally forming groups and species and some politically manufactured ones as well. Bubbling underneath it all is the mantra of progressivism, like a pot of boiling excrement stinking up the political house. The modern progressive movement is not a recent phenomena, it began to crawl out of the excremental ooze, like Golgothan, with the “We Are The World” song:
1 There comes a time
2 When we head a certain call
3 When the world must come together as one
4 There are people dying
5 And it’s time to lend a hand to life
6 The greatest gift of all
7 We can’t go on
8 Pretending day by day
9 That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
10 We are all a part of
11 God’s great big family
12 And the truth, you know love is all we need
13 We are the world
14 We are the children
15 We are the ones who make a brighter day
16 So let’s start giving
17 There’s a choice we’re making
18 We’re saving our own lives
19 It’s true we’ll make a better day
20 Just you and me
By the numbers:
1 & 2: It is called “closing time”.
3: Why? No real reason for this.
4: We start the day we are born.
5: Why? Not verifiable or logical.
6: Arbitrary and arguable.
7 & 8: Why not, it is called life.
9: Elections rolling around soon.
10 & 11: Appears true enough.
12: Try putting your “love” in an envelope instead of the mortgage payment.
13: Unlikely, presumptuous and not verifiable.
14: Of someone, vaguely true.
15: Cannot prove. In fact I can provide a lengthy list of folks whose days I have made darker.
16: Why? Illogical, and pretentious, assumes “we” can all give.
17: True enough, but it is a personal choice, not a collective choice.
18: Highly unlikely, illogical and impossible, aside from that, it is stupid.
19: If this is true, why are anti-depressants so popular?
20: You and I cannot be the world, unless we are in a Twilight Zone episode.
As we delve into the political anthropological landscape, we will start with the parasitic organisms, the ones that if left untreated will consume their host:
Progressives: They date back to the beginning of civilization. There have always been people who expected others in the village to provide for them. These parasites have somehow managed to reproduce and reappear throughout American history. They dislike America. They embrace all threats to America, such as Islam, not realizing the threat Islam poses to them. Progressives long for all things government, the bigger the better; more government control over personal lives is the key, the folks cannot manage themselves. This particular species hates God and worships the earth, believing that we must save the planet at the expense of people. This is the emo, self loathing, cut on themselves kids all grown up.
Generation We/Millennials: Born between 1978 and 2000, there are over 95 million of these people world wide. Generation We is a creation of the adult progressives, the ones creating new parasites. This generation of parasites, the product of broken homes, single moms, MTV, video games and the indoctrination of the public school system, have been raised to embrace statism, globalism, and being a slacker. They are a manufactured progressive group created with the intent to change America and the world. Who openly endorses this manufactured faction? Dingy Harry Reid, Tom Daschle, Google Director Larry Brilliant, Arianna Huffington and so many more lend their names and influence to this group. These people are the result of social engineering. This is the worker bee/drone population created by the progressives, to be good Serfs.
Liberal Progressives: Elitist, large government enthusiasts, who still love America and believe in limited sovereignty. Think old school Democrats like Scoop Jackson and JFK, but more willing to the let the government handle things, as they really don’t want to “do anything”. They are into global warming and believe the scam, not because they want to save the planet from people, they don’t. This group isn’t giving up their BMW’s or illegal alien lawn crew for the planet, but the rain forests are so “cute” they just have to do something, so they slap a “Visual World Peace” sticker on their eighty thousand dollar car and drive around all weekend, between soccer games, going to garage sales and creating a larger carbon footprint than a Firestone plant. Think cheerleaders grown up, sans stripper pole.
Anarchists: They hate all authority, including the parents who own the basement they are “staying in” until the oppressors are over thrown. These are the first graders who slam Dew and Pixie Sticks, then terrorize some liberal teacher fresh out of college. They turn into sarcastic skate boarders with a spray can and a nose full of cheap meth and morph into adult protestors, smashing Starbucks windows at G20 meetings. Think angry morons with two brain cells, one of which is stoned and the other retarded.
Conservative Progressives: Often called RINO’s (Republican In Name Only) or Neo-Cons, they are really just progressives who have a business interest and/or an investment portfolio. Think Scrooge McDuck with a Cuban cigar, trophy wife and a desire to control the world, ala John McCain, socialists wrapped in the American flag.
Constitutional Conservatives: Believers in the Constitution, as written. These people are the ones the founders envisioned living in America, people who believe in limited government, freedom, national security, sovereignty for the states and strict adherence to the Constitution. Think blue collar, patriotic, outspoken people who will tell the progressive to stand up during the National Anthem, the biker down the street, the retired military veteran, or any number of people across America who work hard, vote Republican and will kick your ass if you burn the flag.
Conservative Libertarians: Strict adherents to the Constitution, wanting all entitlements to be halted, as the Constitution does not allow for them. These folks want the government to build roads, provide a national defense and stay out of their lives. Think proud, patriotic, defiant and given the current political situation, often times angry American who won’t kick your as for burning the flag, but will facilitate your picture being put on a milk carton for doing that.
Ron Paul Supporters: Can be seen hanging out with 9/11 truthers, birthers and a host of other conspiracy theorists, often times sporting shiny tin foil hats and discussing the NWO. They are isolationists in a global economy. They believe what mom told them about avoiding trouble, not realizing that like the bullies in school, the bullies in the world will not leave them alone either. They see Ron Paul as a conservative deity, unwilling to accept the fact that he is an earmark fetishist and despite his audit the fed cry, doesn’t even score out as a limited government politician because of his spending fetish. Think rabid pot heads and sexual deviants who have thrown in with Ron Paul in order to try and legalize everything. Hide the kids.
While this is in no way the complete list of political species, as they mutate on their own, and new ones are socially engineered on a regular basis, all of them are derivatives of one of the original species. Which species are you? I am a “radical libertarian” a species slightly to the right of “conservative libertarians”. We are a small but aggressive species, staunch defenders of liberty and support the Second Amendment in such a way that we cannot tell you how many guns we have or how much ammo we have, without a complete inventory. Suffice it to say, should the zombies come, we are the “go to” people in your neighborhood.Continue Reading »
I don’t know about you but I am about fed up with the work schedules of our elected officials. This country is in terrible shape and these overpaid prima donas need to be in DC working on straightening it out, not taking a 5 week vacation. I was already ticked off at the two weeks on one week off they were taking to start with. Boy wouldn’t any of us love to have that kind of schedule while making $174,000.00 yr. Shoot I’d take that work schedule at half the pay, which is, IMO, what they should realistically be making while working full time, not part time. If this country was in good shape I wouldn’t have a problem with our elected officials not being in DC. Matter of fact I would prefer it. They could do less damage that way.
I ran across this link http://majorityleader.gov/JobsTracker/. It lists job creating bills that have passed the House and are stalled in the Senate. There is no excuse for this obstructionist behavior. The Senate needs to bring these bills to the floor and vote on them. One bill was passed in February. 7 months ago! These people have no clue what Americans are going through, nor do they care, obviously. Now Obama is going to present a jobs bill after he takes another vacation. Geesh! Why not pass what is already on the table first?
While the bozo’s in Washington enjoy their vacations in Hawaii on our dime or Israel on our dime, or Martha’s vineyard on our dime, cities all across this country are changing course and instead of running off homeless people they are setting up tent cities for the ever growing number of Americans who have lost jobs, homes, everything and reduced to living in tents and wooden shacks. This isn’t America anymore, least of all the one I grew up in.
Obama says Unemployment Benefits creates jobs. The Ag Secretary says Food Stamps creates jobs. I feel my blood pressure rising just typing that. I’m no economic guru, but have enough common sense to know that is horse hockey. Unemployment Benefits for most people doesn’t even cover the rent let alone the rest of the bills. So who does it create jobs for? More government employees.
You collect UIB.
You pay rent to landlord.
He pays mortgage payment to bank.
Oh! Ok, I get it! It keeps the bankers employed. Hmmmm….I should have been a banker.
You collect food stamps.
You pay grocery store for groceries.
Ok, now you have a few minimum wage jobs saved.
And from there the money goes to farmers in 27 different countries from which the majority of our food comes from while we pay our own farmers not to farm.
Or better yet we flood out our own farmers then the Army Corp of Engineers after flooding them out walk in and offer the farmers pennies on the dollar for their land so Monsanto can set up huge conglomerate farming operations and feed us genetically manufactured food stuffs that are harmful.
I don’t want unemployment benefits or food stamps. I want an economy that is conducive to me being employed. I want to work. I want to pay for my needs from the fruits of my labor. I have worked since I was 14 years old. I grew up believing that a man was only as good as his last days work. I felt good when I bought my first car all by myself at 17 years old. I didn’t have to have a brand new car with a $400 a month car payment. I bought a $400 car. I was proud of myself when I bought my first home and provided a nice place for my family that we could call home and without government handouts or subsidies. That is the American Dream.
Our political system is broken. There is no doubt about it. IMO the biggest problem is career politicians. Power in Washington is in the hands of a few well established politicians that control the rest of the herd there. Power in the hands of a few that control all but were elected by a few. You and I didn’t elect these elitist power mad career politicians. They were elected over and over by a few in the districts they come from, yet they make the rules for all of us and our elected officials follow along like lambs to slaughter. IMO the answer is Term Limits. We restrict the highest office in the land to two terms, yet we let the lawmakers to grow roots to their seats for a lifetime. We just have to look at the legacies of the likes of Byrd, Kennedy, Thurmond, Reid, Pelosi, McCain, Lieberman, etc. It is time to demand term limits for our lawmakers. Two terms just like the President. This would prevent this powerhouse conglomeration of a few.
These career politicans go to Washington and after time they forget who they serve, they become wealthy. Power and greed corrupt. These people no longer serve us. They serve those who line their pockets. We need to change the way things are done in Washington alright. We need to clean the swamp and not expect career corrupt politicians to do it. They have no intention of it. But they know that. They also think we are too stupid to see past the rhetoric. They have admitted such.
It is time to demand our representatives put forth a Constitutional Amendment that limits our elected officials to two terms. Period. Take away this lifelong retirement pay while we are at it. You and I don’t get to retirement pay after 4 years on the job. Why should these so called Public Servants get it? Our soldiers don’t get it and they put their lives on the line for us. They have to die to get such benefits.
We have heard all the rhetoric about millionaires and billionaires being the bad guys. Well we sure have an awful lot of those millionaires and billionaires sitting in political office. We have more millionaires in Washington than ever. Let’s see we have John Kerry (gold digger left $150 million wife to marry $750 million wife), Harry Reid ( poor guy from Searchlight, NV who became a millionaire as Public Servant?), John McCain (gold digger who married wealth), Nancy Pelosi (worth millions and comes from life long line of Public Servants), Obama ( lowly State Senator to multi millionaire POTUS). That is just to name a few of the wealthier. The list is extremely long for Public Servants. Then we have millionaire/billionaire candidates running for POTUS – Romney (millionaire), Huntsmen (billionaire). I don’t know about you but these people don’t represent me. I’m not a millionaire, not even close. Money doesn’t make you smarter or better qualified IMO.
I like my Congresswoman. She votes like I expect her to a majority of the time. But, IMO, she has been in there too long. I don’t know what her financial status is, but I think she is in there coasting along. She doesn’t introduce legislation. She will co-sponsor someone else’s legislation, but that is coasting to me. It is time she goes as well. She has been in there so long that she is just as guilty as the rest of them of creating this mess our country is in. She gets fiesty from time to time on the House floor. But that doesn’t make up for the rest of the time coasting.
Term Limits! We need people that understand the original intent of their jobs. If you agree you know what you need to do. Demand it! Call, email, tweet, text, write, but do it! I don’t care what your ideology or political affiliation is. If you agree – Demand Term Limits!

Obama threatened Republicans not to call his bluff. Obama threaten congressional leaders that if they didn’t agree with him he would take it to the people. Obama threatened that Social Security checks wouldn’t go out if Republicans didn’t agree to raise taxes. Now the Obama propaganda begins.
The truth is Social Security is in a Trust Fund and has the funds to pay Social Security to seniors for a few more years. According to the SSA Actuary there is enough current revenue to pay benefits. See chart above. The Actuary also states that the ONLY reason checks wouldn’t go out would be purely political. In other words if Obama ordered they not be sent.
According to my sources the Social Security recipients in North Carolina have received notices that checks wouldn’t be going out. Yet sources in some other states have not received this notice. Why? NC is a key state for Obama in 2012. He won here in 2008. In 2010 Republicans swept in and took control of the state legislature for the first time in 112 years. Obama is not guaranteed to win NC in 2012. Thus Obama begins his “scare” campaign in NC.
Obama continues his propaganda campaign by saying 80% of Americans want tax increases. I really have to laugh at that. Does he really think because he says so that it is true?. Any American hearing him say it has to think they might need their hearing checked. How can anyone want taxes raised? The only ones that want it are Obama and the Democrat Socialist Party. They love spending our money. Maybe he should ask George HW Bush what happens when you raise taxes.
Obama doesn’t stop there. He accuses congress of spending this country into debt. He is correct. He just fails to indicate which congress did this. It was the Democrat controlled 111th Congress, not the current 112th. He has depended on the blame Bush rhetoric they will no longer fly. Democrats controlled congress from 2006 – 2010 and they still control the Senate and the WH. So who actually spent like there was no tomorrow?
Obama has blamed Bush for TARP, which Obama pressured Bush to sign, and the Stimulus and Porkulus packages that came under Obama’s reign, which Obama signed. Does he really think the American people are that stupid? Well, yes he does and has publicly said so.
According to the Obama administration the American people don’t understand the debt ceiling, only professional politicians do. According to the Obama administration the American people aren’t concerned about the unemployment rate and it won’t have any impact on his re-election in 2012. Yet , 80% of Americans are paying enough attention to want taxes raised.
Obama is delusional and so are his advisors. We, the American people are well aware of the inner workings of the debt ceiling. We, the American people are well aware of the unemployment rate and are concerned. We, the American people are well aware of who spent this country into oblivion. We, the American people are well aware of Obama’s use of a bully pulpit. We, the American people do not want taxes raised. We know it won’t stop at the Obama demogoued millionaires and billionaires. We, the American people do not consider people making $250k per year to be millionaires. We, the American people are not stupid.
Obama needs to eat his own darn peas. I ask you to join me in sending him peas for him to eat. Show him we are paying atterntion. Today I am sending a package of peas to:
c/o The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, DC. 20500

What has failed to make it to the news cycle in this story was the real reaason behind this operation.
Back when Obama went to Mexico (days prior to the swine flu distraction) I ran across a story about guns going to Mexico from the US. Those guns were authorized to the mexican police and military on the directive of the State Dept. (Hillary Clinton). We were already well aware of the corruption going on in mexico. Hillary knew those guns would end up in the hands of the drug cartels IMO.
Now while Obama is in mexico he and Cauldiron are blaming guns in mexico on the US. They were correct in that statement because they were authorized by our State Dept. But the purpose of the statement was to pave the path of gun control.
First our government floods mexico with military grade weapons. Then they blame our lenient gun laws on the problem in order to lay the groundwork for draconian gun control laws here. In their haste they failed to realize the weaponry given to mexico was not obtainable in your local gun store. Sooooo, along comes Fast & Furious. They had to flood the market with guns actually purchased in gun stores in the US.
But like all things leftist nothing stays secret. Someone blew the whistle.
Now in the past month Obama has let slip that he is working on gun control and not through legislation. The entire agenda has been to take our guns. We know this. And anyone listening and paying attention knows this. The socialist administration has been more than willing to sacrifice thousands of mexican citizens lives and the lives of our Border Patrol Agents AND US citizens to achieve their goal.
The ends justifies the means.
Fast & Furious was to make up for Hillary’s original faux pas.

Sarah Palin emails: Enemies sent a series of death threats
“She doesn’t belong to the NRA to support the right of each citizen to have weapons in an aim of self-defence, but just to support the right of every southern white citizen to shoot all non-white people legally! Sarah Palin MUST BE KILLED!”
The death threats aren’t surprising considering how much the left hates and is afraid of Palin.
But that statement blew my mind. Is that what those looney tunes really think?
Over the years I have tried to comprehend the anti-gunners motives and angst against guns. I came up with all the usual reasons:
victims of gun violence,
a loved one being shot and killed,
high violent crime in their neighborhoods,
and then the tree hugging, anti-war, anti-violence, anti-spanking sissy ass wierdo.
But I never ever came to that conclusion. WOW! That is beyond delusional.
Romney’s strategic faux pas
There is a disengaged, even high-handed politics-by-rules sclerosis in his approach – and it just doesn’t resonate. He won’t be able to get away with toting all his “issue” baggage – RomneyCare, anthropogenic global warming, flip-flops and ambiguity on abortion and gay marriage – while also declining to submit himself to the hard work of face-to-face politicking and actual votes.
Romney is nothing more than your typical “It’s my turn, it is owed to me, good ‘ol boy beltway politician who thinks that he doesn’t have to shake hands and listen to the American people. They are beneath him and a total waste of time. Afterall, it’s his turn.
Romney is nothing more than Obama-white. His policies and ideologies are online with the leftist administration of Obama. The GOP will see a bigger separation from the party if they nominate Romney. And they may very well lose the election. You would think they would take their cue from the 2008 campaign of McCain and not elect to back a loser candidate.
In my opinion if the GOP wanted to return the balance of power to the Republican Party they would look at the 2010 elections and learn that the American people are no longer sleeping and we intend to participate in our governance from here on out. I will no longer hold my nose and vote for the lesser of two evils. There are good, viable candidates out there that are immensely more capable of executing the office of POTUS than Romney. His record speaks for itself.
Obama May Ease No Child Left Behind Law
States may avoid requirements of the No Child Left Behind law that, for example, more students pass standardized tests each year if they agree to administration-backed “reforms,” U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a press briefing.
No Child Left Behind was in theory a good thought, but a poor solution to the state of our education system. The biggest problems with the education system is the NEA followed by the teachers unions. The best reform would be to turn education back over to the states and have the federal government get out of it.
The “reforms” Arne Duncan refers to is teaching 5, 6, 7, and 8 year olds how to have sex and homosexuality is okay, teaching 14 year old the homosexual perversion of “fisting”. These are not subjects that I want my children learning in school. It is a parents responsibility to teach “the birds and the bees” in a healthy environment, not the sick perverted environment that Duncan envisions.
More “reforms” include rewriting and removing American history from the classrooms. Here in North Carolina they no longer teach any history prior to the presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes. that was the beginning of the “progressive’ (Marxist) movement. This means that our children will not learn about the founding of the United States, the Revolution of 1776, the /constitution and Declaration of Independence. This mean our children will not learn about the Civila War, not that the truth has been taught about that era in a very long time. They wouldn’t learn about all the struggles and triumphs that made this country great in the early years.
The “reforms” would include extended school hours so that our children can spend more time in indoctrination learning “Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals”, and “Communist Manifesto” by Karl Marx. They will get to learn the greatness of mass murdering radical Marxists Che Guevara and Fidel Castro. The government will control every meal our children eat and what they eat. They will be taught the Al Gore mantra, “Don’t listen to your parents. You know more than they do already.”
The “reforms” of this administration on our educational system will lead to the devastation of our country for future generations. We must not allow this to happen. The Marxist indoctrination must be removed from our schools and parents need to reclaim their rights in their children’s education.

Chart that the US is Screwed
This probably angers me more than anything else. As a former accountant it is a no brainer as to what needs to be done. 58% of expenditures are entitlements. No household can survive by giving away 58% of their income to support others.
Unfortunately there are so many out there that looks at that chart and sees pretty colors. Of course these are the same people that spend 58% of their income at the local bar complaining about their landlord wanting the rent and the utility company shutting off their electricity.
Why so many people are screaming not to cut social security is beyond me. For 30 years we have been told social security was going broke. That it would not be there when we reached retirement age. We have had 30 years to get prepared. It has been drilled in our heads. I have never counted on it. I will work till the day I die. That is why it has always been so important for me to pay cash for everything, to own my home and property, to make myself as self sufficient as possible. The less expenditure I have in old age the easier it will be to live.
If they really want to offer something of value in my sunset years then waive all property taxes for senior citizens. I would be quite content with that when I get there. As for medicare, I don’t have insurance now and I don’t expect to have it then. Again I am quite content in knowing when this ol body has had enough and succumbs to the lifelong abuse I have reaped upon it that it will quietly say “enough”.
If I have spent a lifetime squandering health and wealth I have no deluded expectations of continuing said path at the expense of others.

Does Obama and the Deranged Dems think Americans are stupid? Well, of course they do. “Tax the Rich!”. “The Rich need to pay their fair share!”
There are several thing so very wrong with the ideology and rhetoric. It all sounds good to the young who don’t know better. It sounds good to the poor because they get more and they don’t pay taxes anyway.
The truth is this is nothing more than socialism, redistribution of wealth. The is Obama and the Dems ideology. In my opinion they are the stupid ones. Let’s look at the facts.
The top 5% of the wealthy Americans pay 70% of the taxes.
49% of Americans DO Not pay taxes.
Those in the middle pay the remaining 30%.
Just looking at those statistics it is apparent the Rich pay MORE than their fair share. What they pay allows 49% of Americans to not pay their fair share. The 49% are the ones that reap all the benefits. Welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, free housing, free utilities, free fuel for their vehicles, etc.
People making $250K or more a year are small business owners. Let’s take the guy that owns a convenience store. He makes $250K per yr. He also creates 5-6 jobs. He pays at least minimum wage of $7.75 hr or more, depending on what state he is in. He provides group health insurance for his employees. Those 5 or 6 employees get a weeks free pay called a vacation. Two weeks if they stay more than a year. Not only does he employ people to run his business he provides employment for numerous others not in his direct employ like the lawn maintenance crew that keeps the grounds nice and neat. That is usually a 4 man crew. The truck driver that delivers the fuel and incidentally the people who work at the refinery. The delivery drivers that deliver the products he sells in his store – the grocery distributor, the beer distributor, the soda distributor, the ice cream distributor, the cigarette distributor, the lottery sales agent, the hardware distributor, the ice distributor. Each one of these distributors employ warehouse help, maintenance crews, office personnel, and bookkeepers. Then we have the bookkeeper and accountant that keeps track of his taxes. The HVAC maintenance guy who services the stores heating, air, and refrigeration units. I think we can say he does more than his fair share.
Basic economics in retail – cost increases to business are past on to consumers. That’s you and me. So who is getting taxed here? It isn’t the business owner who makes $250K yr. It is middle America. These are costs we do not get tax breaks on. We will be paying those taxes that Obama and the Deranged Dems want to levy on those Rich people. Those of us who pay our taxes and are not entitled to the benefit’s the “have nots”, or better known as moochers, receive.
The poor are considered anybody making under $22K per year. That’s everybody that makes under $423.00 per week or $10.75 hour. I’m sorry but that is only considered poor by the Marxist elitists. If you are making $400 wk you can afford to pay your own housing costs, i.e.; rent, food, utilities, fuel, etc. Granted you may not be able to buy a luxurious million dollar home or a luxury boat or an expensive sports car, but that does not make you poor. You can afford a modest home, a car, maybe even a 20’ Criss Craft or a Jet ski. It is called saving a little at a time to afford the extras. I don’t consider this poor. If I can provide a roof over my families head, food on the table, and clothes for them to wear, I am not poor. I am blessed. I don’t need to impress anyone with fancy toys. That is not the American way.
The American way is raising your children with morals, values, pride in their accomplishments, love of God and country. Obama and the left want to take that away. They want to strangle the economy and thus the American people and American way of life. This must be stopped. We need to educate our families, friends, neighbors, and strangers just exactly who will be paying these taxes on the Rich that Obama and the left are pushing on us. They are NOT taxing the Rich. They are taxing the average hard working American.

Obama, Holder, and the liberal left are doing their best to prove that every stereotype of the black population is true and the election of a black man to POTUS is everything that we have feared.
One just has to look at the actions of the Obama administration and read the news to see that the above statement contains alot of truth.
Let’s review some of the stereotypes first. Black folk are lazy, stupid, prone to criminal activity and sexual irresponsibility.
Well Obama has the lazy part down pat. He would rather have lavish parties on the taxpayers dime, spend his days golfing or on the basketball court, anything but actually work. Although I don’t know why anyone would be expect any less. Soon after his election it was revealed that the one “real” job he had at a law firm he spent his days with his feet propped up on his desk writing his memoirs. Memoirs? He hadn’t accomplished anything. But then he was given a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing.
This all feeds into the black stereotype of “gimme, gimme”. “I’m entitled because I’m black and you owe me because of slavery”. I hate to inform not only Obama but all blacks but I don’t owe you crap! Not a darn one of you today were slaves. Learn your history. According to the African Chieftains being sold into slavery was a kindness. The alternative was death. But I’m not going to get off on that soapbox. I’ll save it for another time.
We have but to look at our educational system to see the self imposed stereotype of blacks being stupid and inferior to every other race. For decades now we have been dumbing down our students to accomodate the black population. Blacks at every turn claim testing descriminates against blacks? So we have lowered our standards to accomodate the self-proclaimed lack of intelligence of black people instead of elevating them. It isn’t about intelligence because there are some very intelligent black folk out there. It is laziness. Recently a young black man put it in perspective for me. He said that I could study for a test and get an “A”. He could not study and still get a “D”. The result is the same. We both pass the test. The difference is he gets to hang with his “homies” and partying while I spend my time studying. With the effects of affimative action he will get into college or get a job other a better educated more qualified white person. So in his mind why should he show any initiative and work hard because it is going to be given to him anyway. “Gimme, gimme.”
(a)To further facilitate this argument the Dayton, Ohio Police Dept. has been ordered by Attorney General Eric Holder to lower its testing requirements for “black” applicants because Holder feels there aren’t enough blacks on that police force. So instead of having to acheive a 66% on the civil service exam, which would be a “D”, the new standard is 58%, an “F”. This is for black applicants only.
This brings several questions to mind;
Since when does the federal gov’t have to authority to interfere in hiring practices of a municipality?
Why does this new standard not apply to ALL applicants?
Why does this not constitute racism?
By this action isn’t the Obama administration saying blacks are too stupid to pass a simple civil service exam and should just be given the job because the applicants are black?
I don’t think the Obama administration or the liberals had to do much to reinforce the stereotype that blacks are prone to criminal activity when 1 out of every 4 black males are in or have been in prison. That pretty much speaks for itself. Of course the scream descrimination in sentencing when the fact is blacks receive lighter sentences for repeat offenses than whites do. The fact is more blacks are involved in criminal activity since the “gimme, gimme” attitude is prevelant in the black population.
(b)The liberals in Seattle, Wa administration has enacted its’ “Race and Social Justice Initiative”. Under this initiative the City Attorney has decided that blacks will no longer be prosecuted for certain crimes because a disproportionate number of those crimes are committed by blacks.
City Attorney Pete Holmes defends the city’s progressive policies. For example, driving with a suspended license is almost always charged when a person’s license has been suspended for failure to pay a fine, Fox News reports. But Holmes says 44 percent of those prosecuted for the crime were African American. According to Holmes, the disproportionate number of blacks being charged is a direct result of economic inequalities.
Racial minorities are more likely to be poor than whites and unable to pay their fines, Holmes says, adding that it’s a waste of city resources to prosecute those cases. “If we start to learn and understand that one of those institutional causes of racism is actually in the criminal justice system,” Holmes says, “it’s our obligation as prosecutors to address it.”
There are just a whole host of things wrong with this action but I will again stick to the topic of stereotypes that black folks are prone to criminal activity. Obviously the Seattle administration agrees and decided to give them a pass for their criminal activity. In my opinion this is a direct result of the attitude of the Obama administration and specifically the actions of Attorney General Eric Holder who refused to prosecute the New Black Panther Party for criminal activity. It has come to light from those inside the DoJ that black on white crime is not to be prosecuted.
Will these actions reduce crime among blacks? I would bet money that now that blacks have been given the message that they have a free ride to commit crime the statistics will skyrocket. The statistics are already off the charts.
(c) * Between 2001 and 2003, blacks were 39 times more likely to commit violent crimes against whites than the reverse, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery.
* Between 2001 and 2003, blacks committed, on average, 15,400 black-on-white rapes per year, while whites averaged only 900 white-on-black rapes per year.
* Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85 percent and whites commit 15 percent.
* Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43 percent are black, and 10 percent are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only three percent of their victims are black.
The Obama administration is encouraging criminal activity and violence. One just has to look at the recent endorsement by Obama of the violent union thugs in Wisconsin and other states. Or look at the criminal activity conducted by Obama, Holder, and the Obama administration. Their refusal to uphold the laws of this land is criminal. Does this reflect that no matter the position of status and wealth the black man will always revert to criminal activity? Obama seems to reflect the stereotype.
As for sexual irresponsibility the statistics speaks for themselves. Considering this you would think Obama would not be promoting the homosexual lifestyle, would not be refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, and would be supporting the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Since PP was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger to rid the world of the black population you would think they would be a target of the first black president.
(d)* In 2006, black men who have sex with men (MSM)2 represented 63% of new infections among all black men, and 35% among all MSM. HIV infection rates are higher among black MSM compared to other MSM. More new HIV infections occurred among young black MSM (aged 13–29) than among any other age and racial group of MSM.
*In 2006, the rate of new HIV infection for black women was nearly 15 times as high as that of white women and nearly 4 times that of Hispanic/Latina women.
(e) Black women had higher abortion rates and ratios than white women and women of other races.
(f) In 2009, blacks had 8.7 times the reported chlamydia rates of whites, 20.5 times the rate of gonorrhea, and 9.1 times the reported syphilis rate.
So where are the stereotypes wrong? With the Obama administration supporting the stereotypes then the stereotypes aren’t racist but fact based. The only racism being purported is by the Obama administration. Remember the comment about the Stimulus money – “No white construction workers need apply”. And more recently (g) “Too many whites, men leading military.” The same was said about staff within the White House and Congress when the Obama administration ordered more blacks to be appointed to Chief of Staff positions.
This ideology was always the fear of electing a black as president and, obviously, a justified fear. If Obama thought he could get away with it I have no doubt he would re-institute slavery, with the black man as the slave master. In truth that is what he is doing through his Marxist ideology of wealth redistribution. Take from the rich white business owner and give to the black worker. No skill needed. White workers need not apply.
I think Obama has reinforced time and time again why people were leary of electing a black man to potus. The sad part is there are probably some good black candidates out there that will never get a shot at the position because of Obama. Considering the lazy, stupid, criminal, and racist actions of Obama and his administration would the American people ever trust our country in the hands of the inept black man? With such stellar black representatives of the black community such as Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, Shirley Jackson Lee, and Maxine Waters, I don’t think that will happen for a long, long time.

Guess Obama meant that for the rest of us and not himself and his union buddies.
The behavior exhibited by the teachers in Wisconsin is a prime example of why public education has failed our children. When the “adults” that we have entrusted our children’s education to behave more immature than the students they teach our children suffer. And who encourages this behavior? Why who else but Barack Obama, the community agitator, and best bud, union boss, Trumka.
With the entire country tightening the household budget the teachers of Wisconsin feel that we should tighten more so they don’t have to. Greedy leeches best describes these over paid under performing public employees. If those of us in the private sector performed as poorly as the Wisconsin teachers we would be unemployed, 2/3 of all 8th graders in WI read below grade level. That is absolutely disgraceful considering their teachers are some of the highest paid in the nation.
It is time Wisconsin cleans house. I would dare say that school boards all across WI terminate these under performing teachers and replace them with teachers that actually want to teach. With an average salary of $89,000.00 annually there are plenty of teachers that would be more than willing to move to WI.
What has happened in WI this past week is a prime example of what is wrong in this country. Nobody wants to accept responsibility. They all want to be victims. Well we are sick and tired of this victim hood state in our country. It is time for these people to grow up and realize life has real consequences. It is time for these people to feel what it is like to live in the real world, not this leftist kumbiya utopia they seem to live in.
A question I haven’t seen rear its head in all the reporting is, “Did the teachers who brought their students to the protests obtain a field trip permission slip from the parents of those children and under what ruse did they profess this field trip was for?”
Pelosi stated she stands behind the protestors in WI and this is “democracy in action”. We sure didn’t hear that the past two years when the TEA Party marched on DC, held rallies all across the country, and attended town hall meetings. She and her cohorts in the Democrat Socialist Party called us racists, un-american, accused us of carrying swastikas and Obama-Hitler signs. I didn’t see any such behavior then, but I sure have seen it this past week by the Marxist protesters in WI.
The behavior of elected officials is disgraceful.
Nancy Pelosi touted that the actions in WI was “Democracy in action”. Well considering Democracy means “mob rule” I would have to agree with her. But since we are a Republic this is not how we expect our elected officials to behave. Matter of fact it is treasonous, seditious, and at least dereliction of duty. The lawmakers who walk off the job in the manner the WI Dems did and the Indiana Dems are doing today should be immediately recalled and replaced. I can only imagine what she would have said had the Republican lawmakers in Congress had done this.
It is time for change.
Yes it is time for change in this country. It is time that we return to our roots as our Founding Fathers intended. We have allowed the communist founded unions take over our workplaces and our government. It is time that unions be disbanded. With the amount of labor relations legislation that has been enacted of the past half century unions are no longer needed. They have and are doing more damage to our country and economy on a daily basis. We are no longer an industrial nation thanks to the greediness of unions. The unions do not serve their members as stated by AFL-CIO boss Trumka. Union Boss Trumka Admits Main Goal is Using Unions To Fundamentally Change America Not Negotiate Member Salaries .
Are we going to continue to allow these organizations tear down our Republic? Public service unions should have never been allowed to start with. Private unions should be disbanded as well. They have not represented their membership for decades. They have only picked the pockets of those hard working Americans who have been forced into union membership in order to have a job. Nothing good comes from unionization.

Been reading different news reports on Obamas budget that was submitted to Congress today. First it is apparent he doesn’t have the rudimentary knowledge of balancing a budget. But we all knew this already. Not much in the way of budget cuts but sure is alot of spending and tax increases. Thankfully we have people like Paul Ryan in congress to double check Obozos work.
When Bush left office the budget was $1.2 trillion. Obozos budget is $3.7 trillion. Hmmm… that’s a whole lot of inflation.
Is the smartest man in the world an absolute moron? Well, yes, we already know the answer to that. Does he think he is so slick that he could slide this budget pass congress? He must. Or he just thinks congress is as stupid as he perceives the American people.
We are now at 102.6% of GDP. Does Obozo understand the consequences of that? I think he does and has manufactured it.
How much longer are we going to put up with this traitor before the call for his ouster goes out?
