Commenting on The State Of The Disunion,
Simon Bennett-Odlum says:

I am a typical hard working American, one who commonly puts in 60 to 80 hour weeks, sometimes going three or four weeks at a time without a single day off…all for about $30,000 a year.

The way things are in today’s political climate, I suppose most people would think me to be an ideal candidate for Obamas ‘mischievous verbal manure.

But I came here, an immigrant, in1966 to escape the same kind of politics that Obama and the left are selling now to a largely misinformed and ignorant lower economic Class, calong with their restrictive regulations and incredibly high taxes, and to seek the opportunities and freedom that America promised to those willing to work, even if starting off at the bottom.

But times have changed…definitely not for the better, and the closer we get to following the communist/Marxist/Western European political philosophy, well, I hate to burst your beautiful bubble, the fact is you will be worse off, much worse off, with sinking incomes burdened with ever increasinfg taxes, after all, someone has to pay for all the “free stuff” that the Government is giving away to buy your votes.

These economic policies are totally destructive to the American way of life.

For the record, I am “an old, white man”, a traditional supporter of the real right, aptly named because the Right has it right, and the Left, well, it just can not add up numbers and then serve them up truthfully…to do so would expose fraud pulled upon you, dear reader, on an absolutely massive scale, just to get your uninformed vote. And the Left is wrong!

There is no such thing as a free lunch. Get used to it.

The average number of persons killed in these situtations when the police responds is 14.3 the average when an armed private citizen takes action is 2.3. I guess the Obama administration really doesn’t care 12 people will be saved by a citizen taken action. They only are interested in controlling the masses.

I say…we take all the guns er, I mean, personal defense weapons, that the department of homeland security bought, and distribute them to the citizens who PAID for them. Then we issue everybody in homeland security, a nice pair of scissors!!!

Commenting on Obama’s ‘In Your Face’ Nominations,
Terry Bateman says:

Since Mr. Obama’s policies will be so damaging to the country, they could open up a quick pathway for a republican return to power in 2014 in the senate and 2016 in the white house. If republicans truly believe this, why not roll over and approve every Obama nomination to every office? Why not roll over and eliminate the debt ceiling? Why not roll over and pass all the funding bills to his liking? Republicans can tell the media and their constituents that since Obama won, they will not stand in his way to implement his vision for america as a matter of congressional courtesy. If their constituents don’t like the results, they can vote republican in 2014 and 2016. This could so confound Mr. Obama, he might actually start to think through the results of his policies and change them accordingly. Republicans have nothing more to lose than they are already losing.

Commenting on America’s Mainstream Personal Fable,

@ DFields (or should I say DFective?)

There you go with the old Stalinist saw that Fascists are somehow “right wing”. If by “right wing”, you mean “anti-socialist”, then you and everyone who equates the two are just plain wrong. “Nazi” is the mercifully shortened version of the name of the “National SOCIALIST German Workers’ Party” (to use the English translation) that ran Germany into the ground. The early fascists explicitly presented their system as a kind of “Marxism 2.0″. (And this country’s Wilson administration was its first real test — complete with a corps of thugs loyal to the supreme leader.)

Those of us who know our history and understand it frankly have trouble keeping a straight face when trying to deal with the likes of yourself as if you were as intelligent and/or well informed as you think you are.

Commenting on It’s Time For Conservatives To Abandon The GOP,
Ryan says:

The Rebublican party is dead because it’s no different than the Democratic party, other than maybe a few less extremists.
I’ve hear that the way to get a third party is to start at the local level and work up to the national. Does anyone think that there is time for that to happen with the speed in which we are moving to a wall?

NOW is the time to start to organize with ideas on what this new party will represent.

No time like the present to try and turn this fiasco around, if you think it can be done.


Underwear Flashing

An economic indicator goes positive. When he was chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan said that one of the unusual indicators he followed was sales of men’s underwear. The theory posits that sales decline when men are pessimistic about their incomes and the economy. Let’s hope the opposite is also true, because Hanes and other underwear manufacturers are reporting higher sales than they’ve enjoyed in years. The men’s underwear indicator is flashing positive.

Commenting on Why We Lost And What It Will Take To Win,
Rafe says:

The left wanting to tax the rich, yes, but why they want to, is not because of their espoused equalization of wages?

They say that this is why, but that is propaganda.

If we remember who the left is! They are the party of fabrication and deceit!

They lie, cheat, manipulate, distort the truth, obstruct, redefine, twist, cover-up, YOU NAME IT, to get their way.

They have been doing this with ever-increasing boldness over the last 20+ years.

They have perfected the concept of telling the same lie or lies long enough; to the point where they convince not only their audience that what they say is the truth, but they even have the ability to convince themselves.

There is no shame in what they will do or say!

But, taxing the rich is just another one of their strategic smoke screens to get the public to believe they are truly concerned about the under privileged and they (the good guys) are going to get them their fare share by increasing taxes on the ruthless greedy rich guy.

But what is the real truth as to why?

Why they really want to tax the rich guy has nothing to do with equalizing wages or leveling the playing field, it is really to get their hands on more dollars, ~$80 to 100Billion; for the purpose of continuing to play Santa Clause to a part of their voting bloc. They simply want this money to look like the good guys to the millions who are currently receiving hand outs from the federal government, so that they can continue to advance their voting bloc. They are smarter than we think and they know exactly what they are doing! They know that $80-100B is not enough money to do anything to reduce the national debt. But they don’t care about the debt! They could care less about the debt, as a matter of fact I believe they want the debt to rise. They simply want more $’s to continue to play Santa!

I believe that it is part of their strategy, to leave a towering debt for the next conservative president to struggle with, which will make their presidency more difficult and in turn make a democratic president look like a more desirable option.

Here is the proof, if the left were truly serious about equalization of wages then they would want to help the average wage earner who only makes about $40-50K and has to contribute to their own retirement savings which in a life time would be lucky to amount to $500K. But no, no help here for those who pay the bulk of government and teacher union wages and benefits, these people (the average wage earner) are not their voting bloc.

And, if the left was really serious about equalization of wages they would be going after a reduction in wages and benefits to the government worker and big union workers (teachers and auto workers) who’s salaries range from $70-110K and pensions and retirement benefit packages that equate to a self funded 401K of $1.3M+. But, no can’t touch these people, these people are their voting bloc.

Therefore, I believe it is simple, it is all about the voting bloc. If it advances the democratic voting block it is good, if not it is bad. THE RIGHT SHOULD LEARN TO THINK IN THESE SIMPLE TERMS!

The left has only one main agenda, stay in power at any cost, and change a constitutionally conservative America, by force, to their progressive socialistic ideals.

Commenting on Man Fighting Fire Shocked By Police With Taser,
jt says:

It appears that more and more law enforcement officers are becoming too accustomed to issuing orders to people, regardless of the circumstances. In this case, when their orders were not followed immediately, they resorted to the use of force to obtain compliance, in the absence of ANY crime being committed.

It also appears that police are becoming very comfortable with the casual use of “non-lethal” or “less-than-lethal” weapons. Unfortunately, even these have proven lethal in a number of cases.

Commenting on People Died; Obama Lied,
Liberty Lover says:
November 2, 2012 at 8:36 am
I usually refer to leftists as “dispositionally uneducable,” but “hopelessly stupid” sometimes seems more descriptive. The idea that Obama was operating from some type of budget is ludicrous. He and the Senate refused to pass a budget because to do so might constrain Obama’s ability to spend money as he saw fit. There was plenty of money to invest in charging stations and Chevy Volts for European consulates. There was plenty of money for consulates in such threatening places as the Caribbean. Funding was NEVER an issue in providing security for the Benghazi consulate. It was all about political correctness and a pathetically naive Arab-spring narrative.

Obama wantonly sacrificed the lives of four patriotic Americans on the altar of his election campaign. The absence of character and integrity that has been so obvious to many of us for more than four years is only beginning to trickle into the larger American consciousness through the gradually unfolding scandal of Benghazi. When Obama is resoundingly defeated on Tuesday, those brave men will not have died in vain.
