It Really Is All About Business.

September 2, 2011

This week we were shy of a couple of key technicians where I work. “So what?”, you say… “we all have to work short handed once in a while”. True, and no argument there. What is different, or more likely in Barack Obama’s America, what has sadly become the norm for many businesses is that we are all operating with reduced staff and management. This, in turn, makes the absence of key personnel felt much more in most organizations.

I just went through a week exactly like this one, hence no articles this week. No excuses, work is work and we’re damned grateful for it. The end results of the various cuts, layoffs, consolidations and downsizing has turned American business into a sort of survivors’ club.

We have been forced to fine tune our operations and hone our procedures to razor sharpness by the maelstrom of a decimated economy and the overbearing hand of a blatantly business-unfriendly statist regime, whose only accomplishment to date seems to be the ability to vomit forth copious volumes of repressive and regressive regulations and onerous enforcement burdens on an already overtaxed and vastly over-regulated private business community.

We have, without a single doubt, the greatest workforce on Earth. Don’t buy the bull bleep that America has seen its better days… get out of our way! That’s all… that’s all it would take to end this depression. Yeah, folks… zero job growth, in a now-continuous four year economic train wreck that is the Barack Hussein Obama government and its disastrous policies, qualifies as a depression.

We don’t see the stereotypical long soup lines of unemployed men as in the 1929 collapse and the resultant depression. We’ve had soup lines for many years inside the inner cities, the welfare state has seen to that. There is a minor industry that has grown up around ‘non profits’ that cater to homeless clients, distributing resources and helping to administer social services for homeless and impaired or addicted clients.

These agencies receive both private and public funds. So, we’re paying for keeping the homeless on the streets. Cute, huh? I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t witnessed it myself when doing emergency work at such a facility, and as such had access to a normally locked meeting room with a large white board showing all their funding sources.

There was no ‘safety net’ in 1929. No food stamps, no welfare checks, no public or ‘section eight’ housing. That may be why so many people are still bamboozled into thinking that the recession somehow died and that zero GDP growth is somehow acceptable.

There is no way that Obama, or any of his ilk, is going to sell anyone on any idea that this economy is not his alone. His excuses have all been heard and ofttimes repeated. Now he’s tried to upstage the Republican presidential debates and gotten his hand caught in the cookie jar by John Boehner, who despite all his warts as Speaker, showed a flash of brilliance in turning the ‘trap’ laid by Obama’s jolly jokesters around and depositing it where the Sun don’t go. It simply made Obama look like what he is… the spoiled petulant man-child.

If we want the economy to grow, if we want to see jobs, if we believe in the greatness of the American people… this man must be a one-term president.

Stop! No Way, No How, Go No Further… Halt!

July 28, 2011

Somehow or other, they are working as hard to panic the populace as the president himself. The ‘Tea Party freshmen’ are in revolt, and good on them for it.

The establishment herd has panicked itself so badly that some of the more congenital idiots among the Republican ‘elite’ are actually suggesting that Conservative Republicans and Patriots are helping the Benighted One by opposing the Boehner bill.

That’s pretty desperate, and I understand that some of the arm-twisting in the House by the leadership is pretty intense. There are some who are waffling or just want to compromise to get the heat off their backs. You folks, you freshman patriots, are holding the line despite all they can do. Take heart. You’re an inspiration to us out here.

As of last night, Boehner does not have the votes to pass his really bad bill. Just in case he does, Harry Reid has already pronounced it DOA in the Senate and should it survive by some incredible happenstance, the August hand of Obama the First would be there to strike it down with the scimitar of his peerless veto pen.

House conservatives are threatening to filibuster the bill if it should go forward… and we encourage them to do all that and more. Remember, when one of these RINO patsies rounds down on you, you have the complete support of the entire Patriot Movement… tens of millions of us. Estimates range as high as 60 million very angry and very motivated patriots out here, which is plenty enough to turn any election.

How soon we forget the total ass-kicking of last November. Aside from the overwhelming Republican victories in the House, some twenty three state legislatures went GOP. Stunning figures that were echoed in cities and counties throughout the states.

This bill, and the others just like it, are emblematic of what passes for reasoning, or lack of it, in the Republican establishment. If it was the military, heads would roll, careers finito. Hell, in the private sector, heads would roll. The bill solves nothing… it saves nothing… this is a leadership problem.

Don’t let up on these guys for a second. Don’t take your eyes off of them for a lot less than that.

Same Old Song, Different Dance.

July 26, 2011

Citing three respected Republican presidents, none of whom would have given Barack Hussein Obama the time of day, the Anointed One rushed once again to put his mug and carny pitch in front of the cameras for the umpteenth time.

It was fifteen minutes of soundbites of everything Obama has said in the last two and one half years. It was enough to gag a maggot… though if you’re into having other people’s money, I guess you were in Nirvana.

Obama shouldn’t be surprised if his little campaign speech doesn’t make anyone swoon with admiration at his eloquence. That’s what comes from having heard it all before… only this time we’re ready for him. All Obama could do was to excoriate the GOP for their intransigent stubbornness in not embracing his magnanimous offer to complete the devastation that he and his Marxists have so assiduously wrought.

Speaker of the House John Boehner’s reply had no soaring rhetoric, nor pleas for revenues derived from the coffers of the ‘rich’. It simply laid out the Republican position. Meanwhile, our glorious leader proclaimed loudly how the ‘rich’ had ‘stepped up before’. More of Obama’s tax the rich. You know… those millionaires and billionaires and their horrible loopholes.

You see, only a skilled guest lecturer-cum- community organizer, someone for whom someone else has always paid the freight, could fail to recognize that none of us has ever gotten a job from a poor man.

What this is, and why it is so important that Speaker Boehner and the rest of the Republican leadership do not waver, is that this is Obama’s own war with the middle class in America. The middle class is the only barrier between ObaMao and the complete communist takeover of this country. Don’t kid yourselves, Obama is running scared. If he gets any more rattled, he’ll have to wear Depends.

The truth here is that this Conservative agenda is Tea-Party driven. The Patriot Movement has grown exponentially since 2008, and we’ve gained in knowledge and sophistication. We’ve become a real force to be reckoned with. We’ve literally supplied the spine that the Republicans have shown thus.
The heat is unremitting and the Tea-Party Patriots are just warming up.

The Ugly Americans.

July 21, 2011

I’m not the only one that can’t seem to get over the really lame shenanigans that pass for decision and policy making in the nation’s capital.

I’m speaking, of course, of the Republican leadership and most particularly the Senate Republicans, who seem to me, at least, to be in full suck-up mode, tripping over each other in their efforts to lose whatever small strategic advantage we had regained since Boehner and company fell for Obama’s first budget and reduction gambits back in January and February.

That should have been a harbinger of things to come, because every single time we’ve had Obama on the mat they’ve let him back up and we lose a little more credibility. We elected warriors… we got wimps. These people are afraid of their own shadows. They are too timid to fight. They are too timid to stand up for this country, its Constitution, its principles and its people.

The sheer ineptitude of the Republican leadership is demonstrated by their seeming inability to weld a cohesive message and one clear concise policy on the debt and government binging.

This madness has to stop, and stop now. None of us sees a bit of humor out here. All I see is anger… a growing, seething anger, with more and more people speaking out and voicing their displeasure with the Republican establishment who has once again managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Obama was as good as hung out to dry, and you… yes, you, the Republican so-called leadership, handed him an out. The DeMarxists haven’t submitted one word, not so much as one word, about a budget… balanced or otherwise, in over two years.

In the space of one week we, instead of forcing Obama’s hand, send him not one but three proposals for him to pick apart and demagogue, while he still does nothing. Meanwhile, the anger in the country gets stronger every day.

Republicans Have This One Last Chance.

July 14, 2011

It’s really too bad. All it would have taken was one Republican leader to step up and throw this whole mess back in Barack Hussein Obama’s face, where it belonged in the first place. Just one leader with some testosterone. Instead, we get the ‘lets make a deal’ crew all over again.

We know that Congress is being bombarded by deluges of angry patriots, voicing their displeasure with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Yesterday, the Annoyed One stormed out of a meeting with the Republican leadership, telling them ‘not to call his bluff’… which, of course, is exactly what they should do.

Good gravy, you’d think they’d have figured it out by now. It’s sort of like this. Where goeth the Tea Party Patriots, so goeth the nation. I don’t think that that’s much of an exaggeration either. They would never have attained the majority in the House without what we did to put them there.

Therein, as they say, lies the rub. No matter what sort of cockamamie sell-out scheme these two timid creatures come up with, there are at least one hundred Representatives who have stated unequivocally that they will not vote for any debt increase under any circumstances.

Would somebody please tell me why anyone would want to give the Marxists of Barack Obama’s regime one more dime to pee away, pumping up unions and union jobs, on more bureaucrats and regulation, and more poison and venom to be pumped into the economy?

To the Republican leadership… If you blink on this one you’re gone and so is your Party. You will be consumed in the fire of the Patriot Movement.
This is your defining moment… What’s it to be?

McConnell Sell Out.

July 13, 2011

Just had that feeling… I wrote about it yesterday… I’ve learned to trust my inner genie. The Senate Republicans have attempted to usurp the more than 70% of the American people and the Republican dominated House, whose stubborn refusal to cave to the pressure of the Republican establishment and do another sell-out compromise with the statists of the Obama regime has resulted in Mitch McConnell’s so called last ditch ‘backup plan’.

Its brilliance lies in its simplistic stupidity… Let Obama set his own debt ceiling. Absolute genius. That’s like giving a junkie the deed to an opium factory. Mitch’s RINO reasoning goeth thusly… If we let Obama raise his own debt limit, all the little people out there will see what a baad man Obama really is and will flock to the squishy Republican ‘moderation’ zone.

I like what Erick Erickson of Redstate called it… ‘the Pontius Pilate Pass the Buck Act of 2011’. That pretty well sums it up for me, too. I knew John Boehner was involved here as well, with his comment ‘We should have a backup plan’. Yeah, John… the backup plan is to say no!

In the meantime, while these two are bleating about ‘backup this and backup that’, ‘Barack the Destroyer’ is out there lying through his eyeteeth, doing his best to panic and stampede the nation’s seniors, saying that he didn’t know if there would be money in the coffers for Social Security and disability checks. That’s a lie in and of itself. Checks to Social Security and disability recipients are not, and never were, in danger. Neither are payments to the military.

Force this bunch of clowns back on the reservation and tell them this is it.
No deals on the debt limit!

Don’t Cave!

July 12, 2011

Well… the Republican leadership is. Leading, I mean. At least, at present. Boehner has stuck to our guns and told Obama to chew an old sock… No tax increases.

Okay, but don’t fault me for feeling a bit cautious and, truth be known, skeptical as well. I have seen the Republicans with strong hands, only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory too many times to get giddy about this crew, in any case. John Boehner is not exactly the lion of the right, no matter how much we want him to be.

I think of Boehner and I think of back door deal-making… and the establishment ‘don’t rock the boat’ and ‘we know better than you do’ attitude that so many of us have come to detest. One of the reasons the Tea Party and Citizen Patriot movements came into being to start with.

I think perhaps Eric Cantor is a bit closer to the ‘rebellious’ freshman class. Those 71 principled patriots unexpectedly resisted the blandishments of the party hacks from both sides, and not a few threats from various sources, to become a force of their own in the 112th Congress.

But keep in mind, Eric is himself a product of the establishment, though his performance in these critical times thus far has been exemplary. I’ve heard him described as “A young man in a hurry”. Fine. As long as he tows the conservative banner with him.

Between the adamant refusal of the Conservatives to consider tax increases, ‘revenue enhancers’, or any of the other scams put forth by ObaMao’s Marxists, and the absolute blizzard, the continuing blizzard I may add, of calls, emails and visits to Republican members, even the somewhat timid, tentative Boehner seemed to stiffen up.
There’s just one thing that bothers me… there’s still plenty of time for him to roll over.

Timothy Geithner – The Elmer Fudd Of Economics.

July 11, 2011

Actually, there’s a strain of Chicken Little there too…’The sky is falling, the sky is falling’. It’s the left’s Rocky Horror Show, complete with a gallery of freaks that would make the Rocky cast jealous. It’s the full press of all the Marxists in the government to terrify the American people and stampede the Congressional Republicans into agreeing to raise the debt limit.

Timothy Geithner is a classic example of the incompatibility of the leftist ‘econo-ideologue’ and the American capitalist system. His public advocation of Keynesian economic principles has shown everyone with the wits to see that this man, former head of the New York Fed, little understands what actually drives the economic engine which is America.

The debt is impossibly high and the Fed has pumped billions upon billions of absolutely worthless dollars (meaning borrowed) into a small selected sector of the economy, meaning of course the banks, who instead of having to pay for their collusion in the sub-prime mortgage disasters, were rewarded by the government, who had mandated the sale of sub-prime instruments by the investment banks in the first place. Very few of these guys had their hands clean. Geithner was instrumental in seeing to it that these ‘friends of Obama’ were taken care of. It’s the largest political payoff and money laundering scheme in history.

The most pernicious sellout of the economy has been to the public service sector unions. Timothy was very much in the loop as billions of dollars were pumped into states and municipalities to prop up union jobs. Union leaders were more frequent (and welcome) than the Joint Chiefs to the ‘House That Obama Soiled’. It will be very interesting to see what questions a post El Obama regime Federal Grand Jury would have for Timmy and his cohorts.

The jobless numbers… in a word…. sucked. ObaMao is in deep trouble. El Presidente was confident that John Boehner could be cajoled and conned into the DeMarxists’ carefully laid trap of phased-in cuts, with several dollars to one spending-to-cut ratio over ten years. The problem is… every time in the past that we’ve fallen for that… well, just ask George Bush… he paid for that mistake with his presidency. The Leftists’ promises are, as always, worthless.

John Boehner has seen the light. He’s finally on the program… at least so far. Seems like John was given some spine by a very determined and unwavering freshman class which has wrapped itself in the mandate of the American Patriot Movement.

And then there’s the absolute tidal wave of everyday American patriots, who have been bombarding Congress and our Republican leadership with an unwavering message… Stand up or get out!
Keep it up, America. It’s working.

This Will Either Be Boehner’s Finest Moment Or His Last Stand.

June 25, 2011

Here’s what it’s going to come down to. Our esteemed Speaker came on board sounding like a Conservative patriot. We were promised hundreds of billions in spending cuts ‘right out of the gate’. Like so much else the establishment Republicans have been doing, it didn’t materialize… because they refused to stand up to their Marxist adversaries, more than anything.

In an interview with Jonathan Karl of ABC, Jim DeMint warns Republicans that they may be 'gone' if they support the debt ceiling increase.

John Boehner started last January, trumpeting hundreds of billions of dollars of spending cuts… let’s see… at last count he was down to about three billion. Hell of a negotiator. He ‘negotiated’ it all away in compromise scheme after scheme, playing footsie with people whose stated purpose would forever destroy the United States of America as we know it.

Now we have the weak-kneed Ivy League Republicrats whimpering that we ‘can’t possibly’ be serious about not raising the debt limit… buying into, and repeating, the left’s wailing apocalyptic visions of economic collapse if the US debt limit was not raised immediately forthwith.

Do you know what would happen if we didn’t raise the debt limit? Absolutely nothing. The reason is that we have a 2.5 trillion dollar a year income stream…. but both the DeMarxists and their unholy allies in the Republican establishment would just as soon you not know that.

So if the sky is not falling, there is only one reason to want to raise that debt limit… it would simply be another DeMarxist slush fund. Money to pay for their outrageous drunken spending orgies. Which brings up another question. With the country literally on the edge of an economic abyss, why would any Republican even contemplate such an action?

America is in a ‘fish or cut bait’ frame of mind. What that means to Mr Boehner, and all other politicians for that matter, is that America is totally fed up. Republicans should remain cognizant of one thing. It was not through your efforts that you reached the majority… it was the American Patriot movement that swung the country for you. And just in case you think that you have a lock on this thing and that you are the only game in town… remember what happened in 2008 when the disgusted Conservative and Independent voters either left the party or just stayed home in disgust.

My prediction is that if Boehner agrees to lift the debt limit, his tenure will be sharply attenuated. I know there’s a move to leverage a debt ceiling increase against a balanced budget amendment. That will be a very necessary tool for putting the brakes on Congress’s addiction to our money. But, the debt limit remains. Until we face up to the debt issue like adults, the country will remain in recession… or worse.

Incredibly Inept Or Incredibly Wimpy? Who’s Leading Who?

May 29, 2011

Something just isn’t right with our vaunted Republican leadership… with the exception of a few timid forays into the morass that is the DeMarxist fiscal nightmare… you’d never know that we were being governed by the Conservative juggernaut that caused the greatest political upset in decades.

Somebody ought to tell Mr Boehner that tweeting and twittering isn’t going to get it. You can’t run this thing by remote control. Tweets, twitters, Skypes and other evil sounding names may be okay for the flash dissemination of news and the like. It’s never going to take the place of a principled leadership standing up and calling the Marxists on every single lie, distortion or outright invention out of whole cloth that they utter.

That’s what leadership is about. You don’t allow the opposition to make an issue its own and then sit on your hands and hope it will go away or, like so many establishment Republicans, try to ride it out doing weak and lame-assed damage control.

The reason that the backbone of the American electorate, the Conservative Patriot movements, have been so restive and uncertain is just that. We don’t see a consistent Conservative voice getting our message out and nailing the DeMarxists by calling them out on their lies.There have been flashes of brilliance in an otherwise murky landscape.

Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor seem to be the only Republican leaders in the whole crop who get it. I’m sure there are those out there who feel that I’m painting these guys with too wide a brush.

I remind you that this is the race of our lifetimes and that in fact it will determine whether or not America shall remain a free country of free people.
