Conservative Quote of the Day from Allen West

You probably heard that Governor Sarah Palin endorsed our campaign on Monday. It only took Klein a day to accuse Gov. Palin of "outrageous distortions" and actually denigrating Klein's opponents-meaning you and me. Klein is showing his true colors by spreading his campaign of division and defeatism.

“Those Who Do Not Remember the Past……….”

The full quote by philosopher and author, George Santayana, is, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. It is very apropos today if you are keeping up with the news as it unfolds on a daily basis and as it affects our lives.

Many people in our country hold in reverence the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was elected President 4 times (before the two-term limit was put into the Constitution by amendment). FDR came into office at a very difficult time in our history, the beginning of the Great Depression. In the election of 1932, FDR ran against incumbent President Herbert Hoover. FDR won big time. During the pre-election campaign, FDR ran against Hoover on a platform of cutting taxes, cutting subsidies, cutting government and balancing the budget. After he was sworn into office in March, 1933, however, Roosevelt radically changed direction blaming his radical changes and proposals on the problems he inherited from former President Herbert Hoover. Does that scenario seem familiar to what is happening today? His policies didn’t get us out of the recession all through the 30’s; we got out of the recession when World War II began.

Think about this past election (2008) between Barack Hussein Obama and John McCain. Obama ran on a platform similar to the platform Roosevelt ran on against Hoover. It was déjà vu all over again.

Being a product of the machine politics of Chicago and a disciple of the late “Father of Community Organizers”, Saul Alinsky, and his Reverend/Mentor, Jeremiah Wright, Barack Hussein Obama used his formidable oratorical skills and youthful energy to tell the voters what they wanted to hear and he succeeded, just as Saul Alinsky enumerated in his book, “Rules for Radicals”. Even though Obama was considered to be the most liberal Senator in the senate, he campaigned as a moderate conservative and he left the more conservative John McCain in the dust come Election Day by getting 52% of the vote. Once he was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 2009, his moderate campaign rhetoric went out the window and his radical “progressive” roots came to the forefront in the programs he has proposed. The people voted for “change” and they are going to get it, whether or not it is the kind of change they envisioned when they voted for him doesn’t matter, they are going to get “change”, and by having a Democratic majority in Congress, he might just be successful. Already, “buyer’s remorse” seems to be affecting many of the people who voted for him.

Running up trillion dollar deficits, taxing the producers (successful entrepreneurs and small business owners) of wealth excessively, taking over multi-billion dollar corporations and banking institutions, proposing a $1.4 trillion health care plan, are ideas right out of the Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky playbooks. It’s the closest thing to socialism that we have ever encountered, even surpassing the radical New Deal programs of FDR.

This is where the famous quote of George Santayana becomes relevant in the survival of our country; “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it” should be heeded by all concerned Americans in opposing the leftist, statist policies of President Barack Hussein Obama. It is our children and grandchildren who will be saddled with the affects of his radical policies as they try to live their lives like we lived ours.

If we, as Americans, don’t stop or modify these radical changes to our society and our economic system, we will have failed our children and grandchildren. What a way to leave this earth with that burden on our shoulders. Let’s hope we, the American people, wake up before it is too late to save this great country of ours.

Obama and Jewish Democrats

I wonder how Democrats of the Jewish faith will explain away the way President Obama treated Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at their recent meeting.

During his run for office, Obama talked endlessly of dialogue and negotiation and criticized the United States under the Bush Administration of being a bully. Well, let’s take a look at how diplomatic dialogue works under the Obama administration.

According to the London Times and London Daily Telegraph, Netanyahu attempted to show through flow charts that he was not responsible for the timing of announcements concerning Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem. Obama’s idea of diplomacy was to present Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands to sign off on. Obama would not negotiate or discuss these demands. The message was clear: sign off or else. Obama told Netanyahu that Obama had to meet with the Arab League in Libya and that he needed to show them “something.” When Netanyahu resisted Obama response was to walk out of the meeting and to have diner without inviting Netanyahu as his guest! He told Netanyahu to “let him know if there was anything new.” Apparently, this is a new form of diplomacy and dialogue under the Nobel Prize winner. Follow my orders without question – or else.

But this is nothing new for the Nobel Prize winner. Obama’s treatment of British Prime Minister Brown was to cancel a joint press conference with him in March. Also, just a month earlier Obama met with the Dali Lama despite objections from China. Obama spent a little more than an hour with the Dalai Lama – but the meeting was held in the map room rather than the oval office and there was no joint press conference or television footage of the two. Further, it was reported that the Dali Lama was escorted out of the White House the “long way” through a garbage-strewn patio.

I guess all of this is considered diplomacy – if you are a product of the Chicago brand of thug politics.

But I digress. I recall the signs in front of Jewish synagogues telling us Obama was a friend of Israel and the Jewish people. One sign in West Delray Beach, Florida recommended that people in the congregation “Support the Schvartzer.” Well it seems to me the Obama has sold out his “Jewish friends.” I only wonder if these Jewish Democrats will ever call him to task.

Conservative Thought of the Day

With liberal left democrats in control of the presidency, senate and house, I now know what it feels like to be living under an occupation force.
They have raised dirty politics to a high, newer level with legal bribery, threats and deception. The integrity of the once respected offices has been compromised and we will never again be the America our founders envisioned.
The fiasco we witnessed this weekend of revamping Health Care is just the beginning. Our freedom of choice is now exposed to danger. God help us! This cannot be good.

I’m sure most people never heard of that word and wouldn’t have a clue as to its meaning, but it is very relevant today especially in trying to figure out the political rhetoric that is being passed around by some very influential people.

The word “mumpsimus” is defined as a person who clings stubbornly to something that is wrong even when he knows it is wrong. Who, in this great country of ours, does that definition remind you of? I’ll give you one guess. That’s right, our “Spender in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama and his whole gaggle of Chicago thugs who inhabit the White House. By the way, “mumpsimus” is not just limited to Obama and the Democrats, but to some Republicans as well.

During and since the campaign of 2008, Obama has made some statements that are patently untrue and deliberately false. For instance, he has claimed that he wouldn’t raise taxes on anyone who made less than $250,000, not even “one single dime”. Since he assumed the office of President, he has raised the tobacco tax, an “evil” product, whose effect is felt by mostly poor and middle class people who make less than $250,000, and in addition, he said that he will let the Bush tax cuts expire in 2011 thereby raising marginal tax rates on taxable income on everyone who pays taxes. This includes also the raising of tax rates on capital gains, dividends, and the reinstitution of the “death tax”, which will hit all income groups not just the “rich” people earning over $250,000. Now being a smart man (a genius to his most ardent supporters) he has to know that his not “one single dime” statement is as phony as a “three dollar bill”, but he gets up behind his presidential podium next to his obligatory teleprompter and blatantly lies to the American people and he does it with a straight face. Is that a case of “mumpsimus” or what?

Just recently, he said he was not an “ideologue” when it comes to his policies. Yeah sure, and the moon is made of green cheese? What would you call his statement that he believes in the “sharing of the wealth”, the actual statement he made to “Joe the Plumber” during the campaign. That is right out of the Karl Marx playbook and the writings of Saul Alinsky, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, and Bill Ayers, all admitted and confirmed socialists/communists. Is that being an ideologue or not? You make the call.

For someone in his lofty position, it would take a supreme narcissist to be able to say these falsehoods knowing that they are false but not admitting it. Even a person with a limited education knows when someone is “fudging” (lying) the truth so blatantly in his public statements, but it only takes a “genius” to deny it.

What other people are afflicted with this malady called “mumpsimus”? Well, how about most of our Congressmen and Senators? From all those legislators who accused, incessantly, that Pres. Bush lied to get us into the war in Iraq on a whim, and accused him of lying to the country when most of his detractors in Congress voted to give Bush the authority to use force to bring about regime change in Iraq and to topple that brutal dictator Saddam Hussein. They used the same intelligence that Bush used in coming to that decision, but being the victim of “mumpsimus”, they put all the blame on Bush and his Administration when they knew what they were saying was untrue and were spreading a vicious canard, all to undermine a sitting U.S. president and to gain a political advantage. Shame on them, but then again, they have no shame.

Will we ever be able rid ourselves of people who can be called “mumpsimus”? Probably not, but we could reduce the number dramatically by voting out the culprits from elective office this coming November. Now go out and do the right thing!

I'm 63 and I'm tired

I'll be 63 soon. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce,` and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth around" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy or stupid to earn it. I'm tired of being told 'change' is good. All 'change' is NOT good.

I'm tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to "keep people in their homes." Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I'm willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money. Stupidity does not improve stupid decisions.

I'm tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros, and out-of-touch Hollywood entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela . Won't multiculturalism be beautiful?

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.

I believe "a man should be judged by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin." I'm tired of being told that "race doesn't matter" in the post-racial world of Obama, when it's all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of US Senators from Illinois.

I think it's very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more appropriately in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

I'm tired of a news media that thinks Bush's fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama's, at triple the cost, were wonderful; that thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress; that picked over every line of Bush's military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his or asked Obama about his; that slammed Palin, with two years as governor, for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three highly questionable years as senator and as potentially 'the best' president ever. Wonder why people are rampantly dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn't vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004. Coming elections are setting up for real 'change'.

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue, or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance. I'm tired of America bowing to tyrants and their whims.

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight 'global warming', which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore's. I'm tired of being duped to think if you're as green as Gore, you're green enough.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. And, yes, alcohol is a drug. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or gin in their veins while they tried to fight it off? I don't know if gay people choose to be gay, but I damn sure believe druggies chose to take drugs. And I'm tired of the 'cool' people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

I'm tired of illegal aliens being called "undocumented workers," especially the ones who aren't working, but are living on welfare or crime. What's next? Calling drug dealers, "Undocumented Pharmacists"? And, no, I'm not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it's been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I'm willing to fast track for citizenship any foreigner, who can speak English, has sole allegiance to America, has no criminal record, who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the citizens we need.

I'm tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are? Not even close. So here's the deal. I'll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we'll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers, and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. I'm tired of America letting these people get away with this thievery.

Speaking of poor, I'm tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called 'poor'. The majority of Americans didn't have that in 1970, but we didn't know we were "poor." The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I'm real tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them criminally blame the government, or more often self-imposed discrimination, or big-whatever for their problems. This is a crime upon America.

Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and her generation.

Senator Robert A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the liberal Massachusetts State Senate. He retired undefeated.

Tax on Unearned Income

Ah yes, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and those wonderful Democrats in Congress are doing it again. First, they decided that one way to cover the costs to provide health insurance for the uninsured was to cut Medicare coverage and costs. I am sure we seniors can expect the best care from doctors who must take a cut in compensation of 20 to 40% for services they provide us. I wonder how many physicians will stop taking Medicare as a form of payment.

But why stop there? Now these idiots have decided that we need an additional 3.8% tax on unearned income to pay for this bill. Click Here for Bloomberg News Article Who needs dividends, interest, or capital gains to live on when we have Social Security?

Well, I have finally learned what OBAMA stands for: One Big Ass Mistake America.

Conservative Thought of the Day

Question to our liberal friends.
"Would any of you be in favor of giving "Miranda Rights" to Osama bin Laden, if we capture him alive, and would you be in favor of trying him in our civilian courts"?

The biggest health care problem in our country is not a lack of affordable health insurance, it is that too many Americans are obese (in other words, too damn fat) and no amount of affordable health insurance will make the situation better. To be totally upfront, I must admit that I am about 20 lbs. overweight, so in some ways, I am also part of the problem.

If you have a chance and want to relax, sit down on one of the chairs or benches in a shopping mall or flea market, and watch the people walk by. I’ll bet you that over 60% of the people walking by have a weight problem and that more than half of them could be considered obese. Those people come in all ages, all colors and both genders. It is quite a sight. The way some of these weight-challenged (obese) people dress it looks like they are trying to put 10 lbs. of potatoes into a 5 lb. bag. It defies the law of physics.

How did we get into this mess? Well, it seems that our entrepreneurial American spirit for innovation in making life easier for us to conduct and live our lives, have added significantly to our tendency to put on the blubber. We don’t walk, we drive even around the block; we don’t eat home-cooked meals at home, like in the past, instead we order take-out or eat in fast food restaurants; we don’t play vigorous games or participate in sports as much as we did in earlier times; and the kind of food we eat regularly is chock full of weight producing calories that could and should be avoided. In other words we are becoming too soft as well as too fat.

Obesity is quite evident in our young people and especially in the minority community. It seems that the lower the income of people the bigger the girth around the middle as compared to higher income people – you’d think the opposite would be true, but look for yourself at the “Mall observation testing lab” – it’ll confirm what I’ve just said.

Physical education in today’s schools is not what it used to be either. Due to the fear of lawsuits and the “politically correct” police, schools are afraid to have students exert themselves by doing meaningful physical exercise or playing physical games (ex. Dodge Ball). Youngsters today spend too much sedentary time playing computer games and by sitting in front of their computers and TV’s for hours on end. That routine is not a healthy regimen to follow.

One result of pursuing this unhealthy lifestyle is the burgeoning incidence of Type I and Type II diabetes, especially in young people. All the talk about reforming health care will be meaningless if we can’t control the out-of-control obesity problem that is causing the cost of health care to mushroom. A government-run health care option, which the President and Congress are proposing, will only exacerbate the problem and not alleviate it. Since health care rationing always comes about when the government gets involved, a person’s access to quality health care will be dramatically reduced as more and more sick people will be using our medical facilities as the pool of doctor’s, to treat these sick people, decrease in number.

So, in Shakespeare’s time the question was, “To be or not to be”, but in today’s frenetic times, the question is, “Obese or not Obese” and it will not be cured by government decree, or by government-run health care. We’ll need a significant dose of private enterprise and self-sufficiency as we wean ourselves from the “nanny state” mentality and by taking control of our own lives without the inhibiting aura of “big brother” hanging over our heads. Remember what former President Ronald Reagan once said, “Government is part of the problem, not the solution”. Now, you go do the right thing!

Don Rickles Takes on the Dems

This comes from a Don Rickles stand-up comedy routine.

Hello, dummies! Oh my God, look at you. Anyone else hurt in the accident?

Seriously, Senator Reid has a face of a Saint - A Saint Bernard.
Now I know why they call you the arithmetic man. You add partisanship, subtract pleasure, divide attention, and multiply ignorance.

Reid is so physically unimposing, he makes Pee Wee Herman look like Mr. T. And Reid's so dumb, he makes Speaker Pelosi look like an intellectual. Nevada is soooo screwed! If I were less polite, I'd say Reid makes Kevin Federline look successful.

Speaking of the Speaker... Nancy Pelosi, hubba, hubba! Hey baby, you must've been something before electricity.
Seriously, the Speaker may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don't let that fool you. She really is an idiot.
Madame Speaker... want to make twelve bucks the hard way? Pelosi says she's not partisan, but her constituents call her Madame Pelossilini.

Charlie Rangel... still alive and still robbing the taxpayers blind. What does that make, six decades of theft?
Rangel's the only man with a rent-controlled mansion. He's the guy who writes our tax laws but forgot to pay taxes on $75 grand in rental income! So why isn't he the Treasury Secretary? Rangel runs more scams than a Nigerian Banker.

Barney Frank - he's a better actor than Fred Flintstone. Consider... he and Dodd caused the whole financial meltdown and they're not only not serving time with Bubba and Rodney, they're still heading up the financial system!
Let's all admit it... Barney Frank slobbers more than a sheepdog on Novocain.. How did this guy get elected? Oh, that's right... he's from Massachusetts. That's the state that elects Mr. Charisma, John Kerry -- man of the people!

You know, if Senator Dodd were any more crooked, you could open wine bottles with him.
Here's a news flash, Dodd: when your local newspaper calls you a "lying weasel", it may be time to retire.
Dodd's involved in more shady deals than the Clintons . Even Rangel looks up to him!

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, I really respect you... especially given your upbringing. All you've overcome..... I heard your birth certificate is an apology from the condom factory. I don't know what makes you so dumb, but it really works for you. Personally, I don't think you're a fool, but what's my opinion compared to that of thousands of others?

As for President Obama, what can I say? They say President Obama's arrogant and aloof, but I don't agree.
Now it's true when you enter the room, you have to kiss his ring. I don't mind, but he has it in his back pocket.
His mind is open to new ideas -- so open that ideas simply pass through it.

Obama lies so much, I was actually surprised to find out his first name really was Barack..
Just don't ask about his middle name! But Obama was able to set a record... he actually lied more in 60 days than Bill Clinton.

The feel-good, guilt-ridden philosophy of wanting to help others, whether they ask for it or not, seems to be the modus operandi of the liberals going back to FDR and more recently, LBJ. In 1965, Lyndon Johnson declared a “War on Poverty” (like he didn’t have enough on his hands with the on-going Vietnam War), which was going to eradicate poverty in the United States. The liberals (now called the Progressives) were ecstatic and couldn’t wait to implement the policies put forth by Johnson and the Democrats.

So what has happened during the past 45 years this “War on Poverty” has been in existence? For one thing, after spending about 6 trillion dollars on that “war”, the poverty rate has remained constant (for ages 18 to 64). The poverty rate has gone down for seniors significantly mainly due to Social Security and Medicare, but due to the expense of those programs, they are both going broke. The intentions of helping our seniors when they retired, was positive and still is, but the operation and the maintaining of sound fiscal constraints seems to have been forgotten over the years. Waste and fraud alone in the Medicare program alone costs upwards of $65 billion per year (8 times more than the profits of the 10 biggest oil companies). Any attempts to modernize and streamline those programs have been met with great resistance, by mostly Democrats, who hold these programs out to be “sacred cows” that mustn’t be touched, especially by Republicans. President Bush tried to institute a “partial” privatization of Social Security but was shot-down with demagogic fervor on the part of the liberal politicians and the liberal media. Bush was using the report compiled by Democrats Daniel Patrick Moynihan and John Breaux as a basis for his proposal, but regardless of its value, the Democrats didn’t want the credit for saving Social Security to go to Bush. Bush’s proposal was relegated to the trash heap of partisan politics.

The aggressive ”War on Poverty” rhetoric at its inception, created expectations that could never be met then or in the future. In the end, the “War on Poverty” did not end poverty and did not retard the economic isolation of inner city ghettos, which was one of the goals put forth in getting the programs passed in Congress. The CAP (Community Action Program) was a program started to help achieve the goal of “eradicating” poverty in under-privileged areas. It has been a dismal failure. Instead of helping to alleviate poverty, the programs supposedly encouraged sloth, dependency, crime, single parenthood and unproductive citizenship. The unintended consequences far outweigh any benefits these programs were intended to correct.

Critics, led by author, sociologist Charles Murray, in his book, “Losing Ground”, charged that most of the programs were misguided, mismanaged, and mangled attempts at social engineering in which liberal overspending stifled market-based solutions and covered up for the faults of individuals. In fact today, in some cases, we have three generations of families on the public dole and who see no way out except by getting that monthly government check. With all these “do-good” programs directed at the poor people, it has made dependency a way of life instead of as a stepping stone to get free from the chains of government hand-outs. One of the major disasters caused by the “War on Poverty” has been the breakup of the black family. Today, approximately 70% of black children are born out of wedlock with no responsible father at home, as head of the household, to give direction to their offspring or to their families. Crime, unemployment and illiteracy are rampant in these inner city neighborhoods and much of it can be traced to the failed programs of the “War on Poverty” and to the perpetuation of the “Nanny State”, which the so-called black leaders fight tooth and nail to preserve, to the detriment of their constituents and to the country as a whole. These “poverty pimps”, as they are called, make their living and further their extravagant lifestyle on the backs of the poor people they claim they are trying to help.

I guess you could describe the “noble” idea of eradicating poverty, as it is practiced today as “The Road to Hell that is paved with Good Intentions”.

With friend’s like that in government and self-serving leaders like Jackson and Sharpton, the poor people do not need any more enemies!

We The People

To President Obama,

It is time to give up on your plan to takeover Health care! Listen to the people, not the liberal Congress that wants to spend every cent we have and bankrupt America. You promised “Change” and that is what we got, your attempts at destroying the Constitution.
Can you hear us now?

When Barack Hussein Obama was elected President, the feeling among his supporters was that he and his new Administration was the second coming of Camelot - a reincarnated JFK in the person of Obama.

Well, after one year in office the shine has dulled on the Obama Administration and references to JFK have all but vanished from the political landscape.

Many people had high hopes for this young, articulate, black/white President. During the campaign, he came across, to the general public, as a sensible middle of the road candidate, even though pundits, like myself, questioned his experience and his associates from his political base in Chicago, who would be following him to the White House, and notwithstanding his designation as the most liberal senator in the U.S. Senate. People didn’t want to hear anything negative about the future “Messiah”, it was a case of idol worship run amok. In some ways, during the campaign, he sounded more conservative than his opponent, the supposedly conservative, John McCain.

But alas, upon starting his term in office, he immediately embarked on his vow to totally “transform” America as we know it, which he vaguely mentioned during the campaign. Either people actually knew what he meant by the “transformation” of America as we know it or they did not know the ramifications, and they must’ve now been surprised by the boldness of his actions throughout his first year in office. It seems that most people do not want to go along with the changes and policies he is proposing. The unraveling started when the phenomenon of the “Tea Parties” came about, almost spontaneously, around the country. Many people, from all political persuasions, were not buying the “snake oil” that Obama was trying to sell. Since he (Obama) and his Administration seem to have “tin ears”, they couldn’t or wouldn’t face up to the discontent that was building up or running rampant throughout the country, and to the “transformation” (health care reform, Cap and Trade etc.) that he was trying to shove down the throats of the citizens of the United States. It further escalated during the summer recess when the legislators went back to their home districts to meet with their constituents at town hall meetings.

Many frustrated and sometimes angry voters questioned their representatives, trying to get answers to their concerns, but when the representatives (mostly Democrats) tried to answer and justify those policies, using the talking points of the DNC (Democratic National Committee), the audiences erupted in sometimes rancorous confrontations. Many of the Democratic representatives, including our own, Rep. Ron Klein and Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, refused to schedule town hall meetings for fear of being challenged by the concerned citizens of their congressional districts.

This lack of concern shown by this Administration about the skepticism and fears of the populace, resulted in major defeats by the Democrats in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, and in addition, caused the retirements of many incumbents who announced that they will not run for reelection in November, 2010.

So what started out as a return to Camelot has morphed into a depressing case of Obamalot headed by the “Pied Piper of Cluelessness” himself, Barack Hussein Obama, who seems hell-bent on pushing those unfavorable policies on the public, come hell or high water? Look for major changes in Wash. D.C. this coming November.
