Crony Capitalism?

This phrase has been tossed around for years, but really isn't accurate. All administrations have engaged in this practice, and the current administration has taken it to a level never seen before.

Government has always floated in the cess-pool of corruption, but Obama and his minions seem to relish it. Being from Chicago, I can attest to the fact that this is how Obama was raised in the system, and he probably doesn't see anything wrong with it, either.
He just doesn't realize that the entire nation outside of Chicago sees it for what it is.

When government gets involved in the venture capitalism business, it is choosing winners and losers. Obama, of course, seems to have a special knack for choosing losers, leaving the taxpayer to foot the bill. But it has never really been crony capitalism. Call it what it is-crony socialism.

The conscience thing

Ever wonder what makes liberals tick? Why do they think the way they do? How can they be so detached from reality? Here's why.

Here is one of America's most powerful leaders lamenting on how the Catholic church and it's "conscience thing" gets in the way of the abortion provisions in the Obamacare health bill.

This sums it up perfectly. Liberals think the way they do because they are simply devoid of any conscience. And they just can't understand how one's conscience could possibly come into play.

Fortunately, most Americans have a conscience. Sure the abortion issue is a tough one, and will never have an overwhelming majority on one side or the other. But for a powerful political figure to openly gripe about some people having a conscience brings full light on the idiocy of liberalism.

Thanks Pelosi. Rarely does a week pass when you don't make yourself and your cause perfectly clear. You truly are one of the best allies typical common sense Americans have. I hope you stay in the political scene as long as you want. Because as long as you are, the more Americans become aware of the sanctimonious hypocrisy of liberalism.

Rcommended reading

I have no idea what you enthusiastic readers of this blog feel about Ann Coulter. But I'm pretty sure most Americans have never heard of her. Personally, I find her to be rather abrasive, somewhat annoying, and generally discomforting.But, not only do I find myself agreeing with her about 98% of the time, I see her as incredibly attractive in some strange way. No idea why, she's not my type. But at my age, she looks pretty damn good to me.

Anyway, you most definitely have to read her latest effort, "Demonic". This is a brilliantly written masterpiece that explains why we are where we are. The combination of history and the documented tie- ins to the current day are so plainly explained, even liberals could understand. It includes a healthy dose of humor that keeps it light, but never demeans the message. Of course, liberals won't read it because of their inherent fear of the truth. But this book is truly one of the most eye-opening pieces of literature of our time.

Read it. Now.

Coincidence or not?

I would like to take an unscientific poll of the millions of readers of this wildly popular blog. Here is the question: Do you believe the "occupy" movement is a result of the constant class warfare rhetoric of the President of the United States?

Wow look here, the results are in already. As suspected, 100% of you agree that Obama's "us against them" message is responsible for the violence, filth and squalor that is currently degrading America's major urban areas. I don't have to explain why to people like Connolly and Shaskan, but I will anyway, in case someone stumbles across here by accident.

Since Obama has taken office, we have been given a steady dose of  the "enemy from within". During the health care debate, it was the evil insurance companies. Gasoline prices spiked, it was because of the evil oil companies and those rotten bastards that engage in speculating on the future of oil. Then it became the Tea Party folks and Fox News(not real news...his own words). This evolved into those damned Tea Party dominated Republicans that just say no.

I could go on, but you get it. The theme is very consistent. Those that work hard and succeed, are somehow the villain. They should be propping up those that don't want to work, the unambitious, the lazy, because it's only fair.

This message does not resonate with the majority of Americans of course, but it has with the aformentioned bong- toting unwashed. These are the folks that were instrumental in electing Obama, and they are now heeding the piper's call to take it to the streets.

By now, it is no secret that Obama is a disciple of Saul Alinsky, Frank Marshall Davis , the good Reverend Jerimiah Wright,as well as Francis Fox Piven. All America haters.

Which logically leads us to conclude that this "occupy" movement is no coincidence. This is the exact result of the message our president has been preaching all along. Again, it is no coincidence that since the early days of the movement, when Obama publicly embraced it, he has been completely silent now that it has turned into an ugly mob rife with sexual assault, rampant drug use and viloence against police. Not a single word of condemnation from the White House. Despite all the economic pain this movement has caused our cities, he has no problem with any of this, because it is all part of the plan.

There may be a chance that he loses next November, but he has succeeded exactly as planned. And we are in deep trouble.

Outta control

Eric Holder has admitted to lying to congress. He "amended" his previous testimony as to when he became aware of Operation Fast and Furious the other day, in effect admitting that his previous testimony, given under oath, was not true.

So now, not only is Holder not under indictment for being an accessory to murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry,  he is still the U.S. Attorney General.

The most disturbing part of this whole thing is that if this mess had occurred under the previous administration, every major news publication in the country would use this story on it's front page or cover. Every nightly newscast would use it as its lead story night after night. But since Holder is the chosen one of The Chosen One, the story is deemed not worth reporting.

My friends, it has become obvious that this country has degenerated into a nation being played by a state run media with an agenda that is crippling us. The notion of a free press functioning as the watchdog of government has disappeared. The press is now the government itself. Only the still relatively untamed universe of talk radio is still functioning as the media was intended. Sure, Fox News reports these stories, but their coverage is watered down at best. But at least they report them.

We are being run by fascists with most of the media in their pockets. And a huge amount of Americans are being played by the media as "useful idiots" much in the same way the KGB played Russians during the miserably failured tenure of the Soviet Union. And we have no one to blame but ourselves.

You gotta wonder at what point do we stand up and think for ourselves. Anyone else feeling uneasy yet?

Media part 2

This morning, I was once again listening to Don Wade and Roma on the Great 890AM-WLS  from Chicago, the purveyors of common sense and reason. This pair of broadcasters does an excellent job of monitoring the national media. And I have to admit, I was not surprised at their reporting of the election results from last night.

Elections? Oh yeah...there were elections last night. The overwhelming majority of Americans don't know this. But those of us that keep one eye opened, and the millions of readers of this brilliantly written blog are well aware that there were several very important referendums voted on all across the nation last night.

Which brings the discussion to Ohio. On Ohio ballots last night, were Issue 2 and Issue 3. Issue 2 passed with 61% of the vote. This was the vote that reversed
Governor Kasich's repudiation of collective bargaing rights of the public employee unions in his state. Issue 3 was the vote that allowed Ohio to exempt itself from the Obamacare health care bill. It gave Ohio the right to opt out of the national health care law passed in 2009. It passed by a 66% to 39% margin.

The interesting part brought up by Don and Roma, was that the public employee unions spent millions to get their members out to vote. Predictably, they voted in their own self interest to keep their collective bargaining rights, but apparently also voted to reject Obamacare.

But the most interesting part of the story is the media's coverage.
According to Don and Roma(who do exhaustive research), ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN only reported the union victory, Issue 2, on their nightly prime time newscasts. Issue 3 was not reported. Only Fox News reported both results. Again, no surprise.

However, this certanly illustrates how the national media is nothing but an elaborate scam being forced onto the American public. We are being told only what we are deemed worthy of hearing, or what we need to understand. And you are supposed to be naive enough to just go along and accept what you are being told. If you ask questions, you are un-patriotic, crazy, or a racist. Anyone else getting tired of this non-sense yet?


Just imagine what the media coverage would be like if Cain were a liberal. Haven't heard much from the Rev. JJ and Al Sharpton lately, have we? Or have we? I guess Sharpie has his own show on the Obama enslaved cable channel, MSNBC. Anyone get his take on this lately? Would love to hear his eternal wisdom on Mr. Cain, but I just can't bring myself to tune it in. The entertainment value of that channel wore off a long time ago for me.

What took them so long?...the sequel Parts 3 and 4

Well, here we are, about a week into what is still a non-scandal, and still no names of these accusers of  Mr. Cain. Unfortunately for him, the non-scandal has been revealing. Cain and his camp have been exposed as politcal neophytes(not necessarily a bad thing) that have mis-handled this mess to the point where they are attracting attention to it, instead of properly deflecting attention away.

A professional campaign would have simply stated at the outset, that until an accuser comes forward, we have better things to do. The story dies, and the campaign goes on.

On the positive side, it appears that each day brings a new record for contributions to the Cain campaign, signifying that more and more people agree that he is the victim of a witch hunt.

Cain himself has dragged the story out. It will be interesting to see how it progresses. Obviously, the main stream media has a mission to destroy him, and they may very well succeed. But their mission becomes more transparent all the time. Just let your common sense prevail.

What took them so long? Part 2

Check this out.

'nuff said.

What took them so long?

I actually hate to comment on this, as it really is a non-story. But I can't help myself. This assault on Herman Cain's character was as easy to predict as the sun rising in the east. We all knew this was coming. The only surprise is how long it actually took for their fear to manifest itself publicly.

Last night, Juan Williams, author of the excellent book "Muzzled" and ardent left wing political analyst, stated that the left inner circles, which he claims to know well, are all very much afraid of Mr. Cain. Of course they are. Cain is a guy who not only escaped the Democratic Party/liberal plantation, he has the gall to talk about it publicly, and even run for President. If you're a lefty, you should be very afraid. Cain exposes the leftist agenda not so much by his words, but his actions, as well as his path in life. He is living proof that anyone, regardless of skin color, can succeed in this country.

The lefty, tho, enslaved by the political correctness cancer, automatically believes that since Cain has black skin, he must sit back with his hand out and keep his mouth shut. And they will decide how much to drop into the extended hand. No  need to look any further than the last 50 years of liberal policies being enacted in this country as proof.

Of course there are countless thousands of black people in this country that have succeeded like Cain, but none so bold to actually seek the Presidential nomination of a major political party. And since Cain has been riding high in the polls for several weeks now, the political establishment feels the need to attempt to destroy him.

It doesn't matter which side is responsible for the attack. What matters is that Cain has ruffled the feathers of the establishment and most Americans love it. In my eternal optimism(naivete'?), I think this will help Cain in the long run. Most of us are fed up with accusations, especially when the so-called victims have not even come forward. And the terminally arrogant media that is running with the story has plainly stated they will not divulge any further details. They simply feel they don't need to, and you will willingly  by what they are selling.  Don't ask questions, they will think for you.

Obviously, at this point in time, not only are the allegations baseless, they are tiresome. And most of us that are capable of independent thought realize this.

Mr. Cain, keep up the good work, and keep up the good fight.
