This Was No Mere Election, It Was A Restraining Order

November 5, 2010 by  

This Was No Mere Election, It Was A Restraining Order

Because of deadline pressures, I’m writing this Wednesday morning. We still don’t know all the election results. But what we do know is that an amazing change has taken place in the political landscape of America.

Let me note the biggest of them all: In the world’s most important legislative body, the U.S. House of Representatives, Republicans gained more than 60 seats. Come January, they will have a very comfortable majority. This is incredibly significant for several reasons.

First, it means that nasty Nancy Pelosi will no longer be Speaker of the House of Representatives. Of all the results of yesterday’s elections that brought a huge smile to my face. That is the best news of all.

Pardon me for wallowing in a joyous bit of schadenfreude for a few moments, but I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. (In case you’re not familiar with that marvelous German word, schadenfreude means “taking delight in someone else’s misfortune.” This is normally not a very admirable emotion, but in this case, it is 1,000 percent justified.)

Proclaim the news throughout the land: The wicked witch from the West is dead. Well, not exactly dead. But she will no longer be able to call the Air Force and order a luxurious jumbo-jet to fly her and her party back to San Francisco (or anywhere else she wants to go). No, she’ll have to go to an airport, stand in line, and put up with those incredibly invasive security procedures, just like thee and me.

But it’s not just Pelosi who is getting demoted. Beginning in January, every single committee in Congress will be chaired by a Republican. Consider what this means for just one seat.

Yes, the Democrats won all 10 Congressional races in Massachusetts. Yes, that odious liberal, Barney Frank, won re-election for the 17th time. Scott Bielat wasn’t able to pull off the miracle many of us prayed for. But consider this: As of Jan. 21, Frank will no longer be chairman of the ultra-powerful House Banking Committee. In fact, no Democrat will be chairman of any committee!

We don’t know yet who will be chairing the various committees. I hope that when it comes to parceling out key committee assignments, some of the toughest conservatives in Congress will get some of the most important posts. We’ll see. But take heart in knowing that every single Democrat chairman will be forced to relinquish his or her chair.

The new Speaker of the House of Representatives will be John Boehner, a fairly conservative Republican. And while Leader Boehner has not been as tough in the past as you and I might prefer, he will be surrounded by a cadre of very bright, very dedicated and very determined conservatives. When he needs to have his backbone stiffened, there will be plenty of people ready to pour the cement.

And here’s something else that is even more important: Every dollar that the Federal government spends — and folks, it spends a lot of them — must be authorized by an appropriations bill that originates in the House of Representatives.

This means, pure and simple, that no matter what President Barak Obama wants, no matter what the Senate approves, and no matter what the present law says, the House can “just say no!” to spending any money on it.

During the victory celebration I hosted at my house Tuesday night, one of the guests said the best thing we could hope for over the next two years was gridlock in Washington. Yes, that’s an outcome to be very much desired, especially compared to the “ram unpopular legislation down our throats” that we’ve experienced for the past two years.

But I don’t agree. We can expect — in fact, we can demand — better than gridlock. We can expect and demand that the House of Representatives start defunding the left. I don’t think a “bring our troops home” movement will gain much ground in the new Congress. But by golly, a “bring our money home” measure should.

How about slashing foreign aid? Eliminating all funds for “community activist” groups like the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)? Cutting out all sorts of subsidies and supervision; from farms to schools to banks to automobile companies? Republicans in the House could do all of this and more.

Let the debates begin!

When I greeted our first guests at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, I was wearing a bright-red Rand Paul t-shirt. I’m proud to say that I was one of the very first contributors to his campaign (in large part because of my admiration for his dad, Representative Ron Paul of Texas). His victory over an establishment Republican in the primary brought joy to my heart. His election to “the world’s most exclusive club” means there will be a battle-hardened libertarian in the U.S. Senate. Oh boy, is this going to be fun!

The biggest disappointment of the night was that Sharron Angle wasn’t able to force Harry Reid into retirement. As you probably know, the unions poured tens of millions of dollars into that election, along with enough storm troopers… uh, excuse me, election volunteers… to win World War II. I’m not surprised Angle lost; she had a mountain of difficulties to overcome.

Three days before the elections I had an exclusive interview with former Majority Leader Dick Armey, the chairman of FreedomWorks, one of my favorite organizations. During the interview he predicted that the Senate race in Nevada could be very close. And then he added, “If it’s close, they’ll steal it — just like Minnesota last year.”

I can’t prove that the rabid redistributionists stole the election in Nevada, any more than I could prove it about Al Franken’s victory last summer. (See my column, They Stole That Election Fair and Square, for my comments then). But I’ve got my suspicions. I’ll still wear my Sharron Angle t-shirt with as much pride as the one from FreedomWorks. (Yes, I put on quite a fashion show Tuesday, changing shirts several times during the course of the evening.)

I know the liberals who dominate most of the mass media in this country will try to put their own “spin” on the results. And I’m sure that Obama will do the same thing when he addresses the nation in the coming days. I’ll have more to say about all of that in future issues of Straight Talk.

But for now, let me conclude by pointing out what really happened Tuesday: This wasn’t just a midterm election. No, a majority of Americans did something I’ve hoped to see for years: They put a restraining order on out-of-control government.

If there’s a particular election that made you happier than you’ve been in years, why not take a moment to tell us about it? Just go to the “comments” section below and start typing away. (Not in all caps, please.)

We won a big one, folks. But remember, as important as Tuesday was, it is just one battle in a life-long war. If you want to keep what’s yours and get this country back on the path of leadership and growth, what you do tomorrow, next week, next month and next year will be just as important.

Until next time, keep some powder dry.

    I wasn’t aware of no Democrat will be chairman of any committee! now that is something to cheer about. thanks I needed that after watching the polls and finding out that we have a real problem with the water every one is drinking some one piked it with koolaide.I now have a shimmer of hope that we may have a chance of setting things right.

    • FreedomFighter

      We need to investigate voting fraud, I believe it was rampant in the just past election, the message was partially mitigated by voter fraud.

      Review, investigation and legislation aimed at diminishing voter fraud and its effects will amplify the message, crush the cheats.

      Battle won, war not over.

        I AGREE WITH YOU fREEDOM fIGHTER.
        The Conservatives must handle this quickly.
        A new requirement that ALL voters, must produce proof of citizenship when arriving to vote. If they have nothing, THEN, they may not enter the voting room. Period!
        If they are not on the voters list, then, extra precautions must be taken. It is too late afterwards to find as the did in Houston I believe? 23,000 names that were not even on the registration list.
        Lastly, the SEIU or Acorn MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO HANDLE, REPAIR OR FIX THE MACHINES.
        EACH STATE must choose independent or small companies for this.
        Thne persons like Boxer and REID would certainly not win.
        And, afurther thought, HOW ON EARTH DID THAT ‘BASEMENT BROTHEL KEEPER FRANKS’ WINE IN WHAT WAS ONCE PURITAN MASS?
        UNBELIEVABLE.

        • BLUEEYESOL

          I agree. I have lost any remaining respect I may have held for Mass. I could not believe that a people can be so blind or backwards than to re-elect Barney Franks again. The only thing I can bring myself to believe is that Mass. just wanted to elect a crook to continue to rob and steal from the federal trough to bring home more illegal bacon.

          This election definitely speaks volumes of the character of the people of Mass. I have lost all respect for the people of this state and will never visit there even though a lot of American history comes from there. I am disgusted with their example of politics and character. Spew, spew, spew! uugghh

          • Granny Mae

            Rosina and BLUEEYESOL,

            I agree with both of you. If we let non citizens vote in our elections why not just semd ballots over to Mexico and Canada and let them have at it ? As for Barnie Frank ! He is disgusting ! Mass is just doing business as usual. They backed the Kennedy’s forever and now it is Frank. Glad I don’t live there !

          • tony

            The reason California keep on backing up the liberats, is that the illegal alien voters are MILLIONS !
            ALL YOU NEED TO REGISTER TO VOTE IS A DRIVERS LICENCE, and the illegals have them from the Clinton time when they could get it (and
            many with someone else’s name).
            The mayor of Los Angeles is an ‘anchor baby’ who claims that California belongs to Mexico and that the border should be open.

          • Jana

            Wow, that explains a lot.

          • Granny Mae

            It sure does. Who in their right mind would take the very thing that makes the US unique and destroy it down to meaningless ? Someone out there in Calif. needs to repeal that decission ! I know that Clinton and Gore did that when he was in office so he could get more votes ! That is criminal and they should both be held accountable for it. If we started procicuting these people for they selfish criminal acts there would be less of them ! A good book to open the eyes about some of these people is called Dereliction of Duty ! Boy it sure opened my eyes !

          • Carol

            What do you expect of the state that kept re-electing Ted Kennedy for all those years?

          • Granny Mae

            Carol,
            You have got a point there ! I agree !

          • Denniso

            What a juvenile thing to do…show a picture of Pelosi painted green.How childish can Chip Wood get? He’s also obviously confused a little when he calls her the wicked witch…has he already forgotten about the actual witch put forward by the vaunted tea party,Christine O’Donnell???

            I hope to hell the Dems are tough enough to stick with Pelosi despite the Refubs constant smearing and demonizing of her. To abandon her would be to give credit to the low life attacks and lies about her. The first ever woman speaker should get better treatment from her people than to allow the Refubs to chase her out.

          • Palin12

            Pelosi’s face IS green from all the taxpayer-provided booze she guzzles down on those Air Force jets. Someone PLEASE give her a berka!

          • Denniso

            Sounding like a smearing liar is not very becoming to you.

          • Palin12

            If you don’t like it go back to whatever third world socialist country you came from.

          • http://donthaveone Beberoni

            Barney Frank should be in jail, as should Franklin Raines and Jamie Gorelick for their Fanny Mae/Freddie Mac scam that caused the banks to collapse. There is no way they should be walking the streets free with no charges against them, and no way Barney Frank should have even been allowed to run for office, let alone get re-elected. It is testimony of the sad shape of affairs of Massachusetts. But I guess we all knew that already, being that they continually elected one Theodore Kennedy and John Kerry time after time, while these guys levied tax after tax on them. Im glad I dont live there.

          • Denniso

            Palin12…you’re the typical rightwinger who has no shame in being a liar and sounding like a real idiot. Sad…

            denniso
            …and you sound like a typical leftwing liar and nutcase
            “I did not have sex with that woman; these allegations are FALSE”…Bubba Clinton
            “I’m not giving up Obummer’s Senate seat for effing nothing”… Rod Blogovich (sp) D-Ill.
            “We can’t put too many Marines on Guam or it may capsize”…Rep. Hank Johnson, D-GA
            “There may be 14% illegal alien construction workers in other states, but not here in Nevada”….Dirty Harry Reid, D-NV
            “I had nothing to do with the White House travel staff being fired”…Hillary Clinton

            How’s it feel now Denniso to be on the losing side? Americans spoke loud and clear last week, not only nationally, but in state houses and legislatures all accross this great land. We don’t want socialism!

          • Denniso

            Are you going to fight to get rid of social security? How about Medicare? You should also fight to rid the airline industry of all the subsidies they get along w/ airports. Do you want to make agriculture totally free market and watch the small family farmer dry up and blow away? How about the subsidies to defense contractors? More ‘socialism’?? Why don’t you also get rid of the veterans administration and veteran health care…soldiers are just doing what every citizen should do anyway,defending the country,right? You better not drive on any public highway and call for the destruction or defunding of them…one of the biggest ‘socilaistic’ schemes ever.

            You want to get rid of anything w/ a ‘socialistic’ taint,you’ll have to do more than just go after the new healthcare bill. If you people were consistent at least you could be honorable. But no,you want the ‘socialistic’ programs that you demand and also end the ones you don’t like. That’s called hypocrisy,isn’t it?

          • Palin12

            You just don’t get it and you never will. I am not against Social Security, I paid into it for 40+ years and I just want to get back what I put into it. And I want the liberals and the RINOs to quit raiding the fund to pay for other junk at the expense of our seniors. You are right about one thing, we want to end Obamacare and we want to do it right NOW. We want the government to quit paying for frivolous expenses such as Michelle Obama’s 21 personal assistants who collectively earn $1.7 million a year in addition to Queen pelosi’s $100,000 booze tab. We the people do not benefit from any of this waste. It doesn’t matter what previous administrations did, the time has come for it to end now. These politicians work for us, they are not our masters and they do not know what’s best for us. Get over it denniso, you LOST! How does it feel?

          • Denniso

            Palin12…YOU don’t get it! You stated clearly,as most of fellow sheep do, that you don’t want ‘socialism’. You then say that you want SOCIAL security to continue. Social security,like all the other things I mentioned,are socialistic,in that they are shared and payed by most of society. All things that are done through gov’t w/ people’s taxes are ‘socialistic’ to varying degrees.

            That’s where you people are hypocritical…you want some of the ‘socialism’ in the country and then turn around and demonize other ‘socialistic’ programs,only because you don’t like them. Try a little consistency for once. You either hate all things gov’t does w/ taxpayer money,the military included(since it’s a socialistic model for defense),or you drop this dumb socialism cry and judge gov’t programs on their merrits.

          • Palin12

            Loser!

          • Denniso

            I know, it’s tough on you people….can’t make a cogent response or point so you come back w/ a childish retort. It shows you for what you really are. Under educated,ill informed and content to rant and smear,but not think. Sad for the country and anyone around you.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          rosina,
          I can’t understand how those people got to vote. Here when you vote, you have to get your name checked off and sign to vote! There would be no way for ANYBODY to vote without signing off first and they can’t sign if their name isn’t on the list!!

          • Dan az

            Hey Joe they just ruled that next year no one has the right to inspect the citizenship of any voters here.another liberal judge!

          • Granny Mae

            Dan Az,

            Someone needs to take that rulling to the supreem court ! If we have to register to vote then they have not just a legal right but a legal obligation to check IDs. Guarding our voting rights and keeping them only for legal citizens is a solem duty of the government. Our young and old citizens gave their lives for our right to vote in this country and no liberal has the right to take that away for any of us any where in the United States ! In my humble opinion !

          • Lewis Munn

            In the small town I live outside of, where I am often greeted by name, I still had to provide both my legal ID card, and my voter registration card, which were both inspected by two separate human clerks, and I was checked off on the list of registered voters for my district.

            Not sure why this is such a terrible problem for so many people.

          • http://donthaveone Beberoni

            Indiana has this right. You go in, and your name is in a book, and they turn to that page, you produce a photo ID, and they do look at you and see that it is you, then you sign, and they compare your signature with your license signature. Once your name is signed, you vote, and you cant come back and do it again.

      • JRC

        Whine whine voter fraud…lmao.
        Moreover, NOTHING will change, They will do what they want to do and the sheep voters voting for one or the other party will never know how much wool was pulled over they’re collective eyes.
        If any of you believe that the politicians care about you, the last election and the lies coming from “everyone” of them propagated in adds on TV should have opened your eyes…..but unfortunately it has NOT.

        • Vigilant

          That’s a really constructive comment. Instead of the doom and gloom of pessimism, do you have anything to offer as a solution?

          • Russ errett

            I believe that government welfare and subsidies are unconstitutional. Therefore the promise of “bread and circus” by politicians to buy votes should not be permitted.

        • spike

          You know what, JRC? I vote any day for what happened Tuesday, then what’s been going on in DC for two years. Obama and his cronies stealing my rights with the keys to the jailhouse are guarded by no one!! you can say what you want, but AT THE VERY LEAST, AMERICA SHOWED IT STILL HAS SOME BACKBONE!!! and make fun of the capital letters if you want, I don’t CARE!!

            This election was a restraining order for me as far as I am concerned. I saw a name on the ballot and did not see any campaign adv. on TV for her and I thought? Who is she??? Republican it says. Good enough for me so I voted for her. It is about platform for those of you who are confused. I never listen to the TV advs. I am a good boy- He is the bad one. This did this dirty I am so good and blah – blah. it goes. The candidates are supposed to do what their party calls for: Democrats (Liberal) Republicans (More Conservative) Democrats believe more in Abortion, Taxation, and government control of everything. Now Take your pick. America just did. I think everyone had enough. They may not have realized the difference but they did not like what they were getting.

        • alpha-lemming

          Remains to be seen. Over the last 20yrs… I whole-heartedly agree that the “essentially 1 party” (Full-blown Marxist on steroids vs. yeah OK only sorta Marxist) DC rule has ruined the country for generations. It REALLY feels different this time though.

          The T-party movement is the political equivalent of chemotherapy. If it doesn’t rid the Republican party of its’ “progressive cancer” (awful lot of RINOs recently purged), the treatment will kill the patient… the GOP will go the way of the Whigs… and a new party will rise to fill the void. One that hand-cuffs the government and returns it to its Constitutionally mandated purview and scope. I’d be thrilled if that turned out to be the Libertarians but…..

          • Jana

            One of the things we can start out with is to tell the new speaker to ditch the plane that Pelosi used to travel back and forth to San Francisco. Commercial flights are good enough for the rest of us and they will have personal experience when it comes to some of the things they control and vote on with the airlines.

            Oh, please, get off the guys ass for his spelling and use of grammer. Just because one cannot spell, or in excited debate uses a word in the wrong tense, does not mean he does not have a brain or should be insulted. Insult him if you wish for his political views, anthing else is just mean spirited. Enough already. In case your wondering,I was absolutely thrilled with what happend on election day. Now our next step is to force Obama out of office NOW, not in two years. He can do a lot of damage in the next two years with his “Executive Order”. I would think we have enough evidence to impreach him on the grounds of treason. Impeach the V-P also. As far as I am concerned, we should exile Polosi. That woman has definitely earned the right to go live in Cuba, but to leave, she has to turn over her fortune that she has amassed since taking office and sign away her pension. Everybody knows that the Arizona election was rigged. Why would the people of that state re-elect a man who cares nothing about the safety of his constituants from the drug cartels and illegals crossing the borders. All foreign entry into the US should be stopped, at least temporarily. Build walls around our borders and adequately place soldiers at the borders for control. Next, start rounding up all the illegals, put them on army aircraft that will hold more people than public airlines, fly them back to where they belong. Then go back to requiring new immigrants to have sponsors here in the US that will give them housing and food until they are able to get a job. Require that any new entrants have a marketable skill here in the US and of course, require them to learn English! No English, no jobs. That is how it was when my grandparents came to this country and that is how it should have stayed. Take aaway all of these “Lifetime” pensions that are given to our Presidents and other government officials. They want a pension, let them pay into it like everyone else. We have to go back to producing the things we need right here in the USA. There was a time that this country did produce everything. Now, this country is 2/3 a “service” country. Meaning all our jobs are “kiss ass” jobs. We used to make our own appliances and the parts needed to put them together. Same for our TVs, cars, food, phones. Stop importing inferior products from China and Tiwan and Mexico. We have our own oil sources, why are we paying through the nose to import this? We have to go back to what made this country great! Our own ingenuity and talents. And most of all, as stated previosly in other comments stop giving all our money to all these different countries. They don’t appreciate it and it only makes them dependent on the United States. It also makes these countries think that they have a right to more! I am neither a Democrat or Republican, I have always voted for who I think would be best for this country. This is the first time in my 63 yrs. of life that I have ever felt threatened by the leader of our own country. I would at the very least exile Obama, but really feel he should be tried for treason against the USA and approprietly sentenced as our Constituion demands. I am not a predjudiced person. I don’t care what color you are or what country you come from. What I do care about is that my hard earned money doesn’t have to go to support aliens that won’t do anything to help support themselves. When all this occurs, then we can start letting immigrants into our country again, legally. PS. Please excuse any errors I have made in my spelling. At 63, for some reason I am starting to forget how to spell sometimes.

            Great post. I agree with you. I feel Obama should be impeached also ! When a president goes out of his way to apologize for this country and then ram bills through that the people of this country have made clear they don’t want and then have the nerve to talk down to us as though we were pee-ons and lie to us! He needs to go and go the hard way ! And he needs to take his boss, Soros, with him !

            Check this out. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving.

            Even those surrounding Obama in the WH are getting nervous about his mental state. He was shipped off to India to get him out of the country before he did any more damage to his party. Apparently, from all I’ve been reading, he is really losing it, and his own party leaders are seriously considering having him removed.

            He is completely indifferent to what’s going on in America and around the world. Worse, he’s completely incompetent. And he and Michelle are terrorizing the WH, according to staffers.

            A MUST READ.

            That one site tells it all obummer is losing it fast thats great stuff!and having biden start the proceedings is even funnier I have to spread this around for all that didnt look at the article thanks kate!
            Vice President Biden, under intense pressure from some Democratic Party officials and Cabinet members to invoke Article 25, Section 4 of the Constitution and have Obama temporarily or permanently removed as president because of his mental incapacity to fulfill his constitutional oath as president is reluctant to take such drastic action. Biden feels that the country would “become unglued” after such action and he doesn’t want to be the one who would be responsible for “picking up the pieces,” according to a source who works within Biden’s office.

            I went to that site and was shocked. I have heard rumblings about Obama but this just shows that he is really in trouble. It goes right up there with Waynes Definition of Narcissistic.
            This will get out eventually as you just can’t keep it hidden. No wonder there were so many jumping ship. I knew he wasn’t making all of the diecisions, that Annette Jennings was making some, but his mother in law, now this is pathetic.

          • Jana

            Marvin,
            Very good point.
            In the last few elections we have been firing these so called Reps. for NOT listening to us. A few days ago we fired a bunch more. We need to write our Reps. and let them know we are paying attention to how they vote and how they do their job. No one is indispensible here.
            Now, our job also is to let our Reps know what we think about these bills they are trying to pass or do away with.
            Our Reps. aren’t mind readers, they need to hear from us and hear from us often.
            These Reps. live in a bubble called Washington Insiders (my term) and they don’t really know what it is to live our here in the real world.

            It was never intended for Congress to be in session for more than a few months every other year. These people would then have to get out in the economy and know what the laws they passed do to our country and our people as they had to abide by them too. Now days, they have no clue as they are isolated in Washington. They don’t drive their own cars, nor fill their own gas tanks, nor do they hit the grocery store. They just order it in and don’t even have to pay for it, we the tax payers pay for their extravagances. Nancy Pelosi is a perfect example of extravagant, as well as is Obama. No personal experiences and no clue in dealing with real life or real jobs. Plus they have put themselves above us by not having to follow the same laws they have legistlated for us.

          • Granny Mae

            Jana,

            You hit the nail on the head. I have felt for years that there should be somewhere that all the decissions and attendance, and just every move our Reps. make should be posted for all to see so we would know how we were going to vote the next time ! For instance = some idiot in this state has passed a bill making it mandatory that this year every bit of gas sold here will have ethenol in it !!! Real bright and must have been written by a person that has no clue about autos and how they run ! First of all they are complaining about emissions and they demand we put something in our car that will give us worse gas milage and we have to use more gas !!! Second the cars don’t run right on the corn alcohol. The computers in the cars are not made to know when it is running with more alcohol so the oxygen sensor goes crazy because alcohol creats more oxygen. This tells the computer that the car needs more gas so it gets more gas. Now you are going through gas like crazy just because of the corn ethenol ! I don’t know about you but at the price of gasoline, and it is going up, I would like to get what I’m paying for , not a bunch of alcohol ! It is not just cars that are being effected by this. Anything that runs on gas is effected ! People are throwing away lawnmowers because they start then stop and won’t start again because of the ethenol. The alcohol is eating up hoses and coroading metal parts. I don’t know about you but I sure can’t afford to replace all these things and pay high gas prices all because of some mamby pamby politician that has no clue about what he is voting on or how things run or how his decissions are going to effect everyone in the country ! This is just plain stupid !

          • Kinetic1

            Granny,
            Good information. It’s a shame more people don’t know about the effects of ethanol, but the Farming industry has been pushing corn ethanol for decades now and hiding the true cost of production. Even though the Government (we) subsidize growing and producing this snake oil, it’s still expensive. And those who claim it is a viable way to reduce oil imports are either in on it or don’t have very good information. In 2009 we were on a pace to produce 14 billion gallons of ethanol and that was only enough to make all gas pumped E10 (10% ethanol, 90% Gas). Now consider how much more we would need to produce to achieve E85, added to the fact that you need 10% to 30% more fuel running through you injectors and, well Granny made the point well.

            You’d think they would have been uncovered by now, but politicians know that if they want to win in the farm belt, they have to support ethanol. It’s a boom for them! Not only has it driven up the cost of corn, but the reduction in available fields for other crops is driving up the price of wheat and soybeans. In fact, I recall this subject being part of a West Wing episode where the candidate knows the truth and refuses to support ethanol in an Iowa caucus speech, but buckles under political pressure. The information is out there. Yep, if you want to drive on crops your better off running a diesel on used cooking oil (refined of course), but that’s almost free to make at home and this is all about money.

He is now 73 and still going at it ! When we were first going together we spent most of our dates in his garage working on care!! I was always up to my elbows in a tub of gasoline washing parts for him. Time goes by but nothing changes ! I love cars right along with him and in fact did a little minor drag racing in my day. Still watch the races on the TV ! Some of this stuf with the laws being made today by politicians that have no idea of what is going on in cars just makes me mad ! It would be like me making medical decissions and laws and I’m no doctor or have any idea of medicine ! Stupid if you ask me !

          Another one of NObama’s stupid, stupid ideas. This man has got to go in 2012. I am certainly glad that the Reoublicans have a majority in the house that can block this maniac. I hope that the Republican Party are smart, and cunning enough to outwit this idiot. NObama is very cunning so they will have to watch him like a hungry fox would watch a chicken. I hope they will not let him pull a slick one on them. I am attaching a message written by the editor of the London Daily Telegraph about NObama to show what other nations think about NObama.

          “Let me be clear: I’m not normally in favor of boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States. But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama’s reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue.”

          One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama’s animosity toward Great Britain, presumably because of what he regards as its sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).

          One of Barack Hussein Obama’s first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11. He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags.

          The president was “too tired” to grant the leader of America’s closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.

          Mr. Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen. Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as “rudeness personified.” There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations in September. “The prime minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were rejected by the White House,” said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr. Obama’s “churlishness is unforgivable,” Mr. Hughes said.

          The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of Argentina’s specious claim to the Falkland Islands , a British dependency since 1833. The people who live in the Falklands, who speak English, want nothing to do with Argentina. When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by force, the British — with strong support from President Ronald Reagan — expelled them.

          “It is truly shocking that Barack Obama has decided to disregard our shared history,” wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. “Does Britain’s friendship really mean so little to him?” One could ask, does the friendship of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?

          “I recently asked several senior administration officials, separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in office,” wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, on Monday. “A lot of hemming and hawing ensued.” One official named French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret. Another named German Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said Mr. Diehl, “Merkel too has been conspicuously cool toward Obama.”

          Mr. Obama certainly doesn’t care about the Poles and Czechs, whom he has betrayed on missile defense. Honduras and Israel also can attest that he’s been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful friend. Ironically, our relations with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have never been worse. Russia has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama’s abandonment of missile defense. Russia and China won’t support serious sanctions on Iran. Syria’s support for terrorism has not diminished despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs Burma has responded to our efforts at “engagement” by deepening its ties to North Korea.

          And the Chinese make little effort to disguise their contempt for him.

          For the first time in a long time, the President of the United States is actually distrusted by its allies and not in the least feared by its adversaries. Nor is Mr. Obama now respected by the majority of Americans. Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama’s relentless efforts to nationalize and socialize health care, Americans apparently have yet to notice his dismal performance and lack of respect in the world community.
          They soon will.”

            This was a very good and informative post. The only ones I really see Obama reaching out to are the Muslim nations, not any others. He has as you said in your post been rude to other nations heads of state, and obviously considers them his enemies too, just like he considers us the conservatives his enemies, and we must be punished.
            He is a rude crude person who has a rude crude wife, who thinks they are put in the White House to have fun fun fun and go on expensive vacations.
            Wow, the news this morning said that he has secured 50,000 more jobs for Americans because of his trip. Hmmm, sounds more like the bailout monies that was spent, one million dollars spent per job saved.

          Millions of people aren’t just whining. They are contacting their Senators & Congressmen. Politicians have witnessed what the American people can accomplish when made mad. It’ll happen again if they don’t listen. How can you believe all the lies told about every candidate? This was the biggest hate bash in many years during elections.

          Millions went into the democrat campaign by unions. When people hear so much trash, mostly lies or part truths, they don’t have all the facts. This makes it very difficult to know who to believe. If you noticed in Calif. when voters had information on all the propositions & understood it, the right choices were made. Two propositions didn’t make themselves clear intentional or not & people weren’t sure what would happen if they passed or didn’t. Wrong choices were made due to lack of information & understanding.

          If all Americans had truthful information about all candidates, we’d know exactly how to vote. We need a website with candid, truthful info on all politicians now & for the future elections.

        • Laura Ayala

          My husband has been a union worker his entire life. His family and I are very greatful for what the union made possible for us. However, today, I do feel that the unions of today care nothing about its workers, just the fees that keep the unions going. Unions do serve a good purpose when they are getting fairliving wages for jobs and making sure that their card holders are getting proper health care and humane working conditions. Please remember, that if it weren’t for unions, generations would have had to work under inhuman circumstances. But like our government, they are getting out of control. They think less and less of the Ameriacan people that made their existence possible. Unfortunately, they are behind bringing in all of these foreign workers every month. So, just like the government, we have to remind unions that they are working for us, not for themselves.

          Regarding the comment on pot. Oh Please!!!!Rehab for Pot??? If you believe that garbage or are soooo misinformed. The only reason that pot is not legalized in this country is because the people who make the laws and have most of the money are the ones who are paying for all of this to come into the country. They don’t want it legalized because then they would not make any money on it. Alcohol is 100% more damaging to the user’s body and to the public than pot could ever be. My God, over the years I have smoked Pot with lawyers, Judges, cops, doctors, priests. It is lproven to medically helpful for many physical ailments. People who don’t drink while having the responsiblity of caring for children or the public, won’t smoke pot during these times either. If you drink and put others at risk because you drink, you will do the same thing with any substance that they chose to favor. It is not the choice of the substance, but a choice of character.

          • Jana

            Laura A,
            I agree with you about Unions. They truly used to be a good thing and served a good purpose but now the only ones benefitting and getting rich off of unions are the union bosses.
            They have reached their hands into your retirement pensions and used the money for other things. They have spent a couple of billion dollars on the campaigns during this voting season alone. If they are hurting so badly, how can they afford that?
            Also, let your husband try and leave the union and continue to work. It won’t happen. That is not freedom. They are also trying to make union voting open now so everyone will know how everyone else voted, which sounds hugely like intimidation.
            You lost me however on pot. I don’t drink regularly, in fact I haven’t had liquer in any form all of this year, and I don’t do pot. I have a neighbor whose son was doing pot and has serious health problems because of the fermaldehyde that was put in it. It is evidently cut? with a lot of different things to add bulk to it. I thought this was only with the white powdery type of dope (sorry, I can’t think of the name of the white stuff that looks like powdered sugar). Shoot, I am having a blank moment here. However, I found out that wasn’t so. Thankfully he is off of that stuff, but is still having problems.

            Wayne,
            My husband has the same sentiments about union workers. He has worked with some that flatly refuse to do more than the ONE thing they were hired for. Where my husband used to work they worked all over the plant, not in one little spot. Then when he became Foreman, and then General Foreman he still had to be able to do all of the things than anyone else could do. He said anyone that he ran into that used to work for a union was worthless on the job. I am sure that isn’t 100% across the board, but it sure was for him. We don’t have much respect for unions or those who work or worked for them because of their attitude.

            Laura, I also agree with you about he unions being a good thing when they were first formed. I believe that they hsve emerged into something that is not good for the companies they work for, the country, or for themselves. I worked with a man one time that had worked in a union. He told me that he was working in a sheet metal shop using a drill. He had accidently cut the cord. He was qualified to repair the cord, but as he was repairing the cord, a union boss walked by and scolded him for doing this as he was not an electrician. He statd that the union boss told him to call the electrical shop for a repairman. The gentle said he had to sit on his butt, and wait about 4 hours become the electrician came to repair his cord. Just think, he was being paid for 4 hours of work sitting on his butt and not doing anything. I don’t care what anyone says, this is not right. The man wanted to work, but he couldn’t because of some stupid union rule. This is why some people don’t like what the unions are doing. They have also driven up cost on products for their own benefit, and not for the comsumers. I also believe they have driven up the price of the automobile, considerabley, over the years, putting them out of the reach for a lot of consuemers due to the high cost. The automobiles that were made through the 60′s, 70′s, 80′s and through part of the 90′s were junk as far as I am concerned. The automobile companies did not start to improve their vehicles until the Japanese started out selling them. In this situation competition was a good thing. I do believe that the quality of the autobobiles made in the country, like GM and Ford are now compatible with those being shipped in from other countries. However, it took overseas competition to do this. Competition is a good thing as it improves the products we pay good money for.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        I would pretty much guarantee there was massive voter fraud in Nevada and California, because Im having a hard time believing that there are really that many stupid people that would actually vote and re-elect Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer. Something is rotten somewhere. Why would anyone with any thread of common sense, and sense of decency, vote for a Harry Reid or Barbara Boxer? It just unreal to me.

        • Palin12

          Beberoni
          I agree with you wholeheartedly about election fraud in CA and Nevada. I was at the GOP Victory party at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas on election night. Before our returns started coming in, the networks showed a graphic on exit poll numbers, showing Angle 53% and Reid 39%. Suddenly, when the results started coming in it showed Reid ahead. Several people have testified they voted for Angle but the printout said Reid. There is also a shortcut ballot here, if you want to vote straight Republican push “R” and then the printout said all democrats. Union intimidation and coercian also played a big roll. I’ve heard one suggestion to boycott all the MGM and Harrah’s casinos as they are the ones with the union thugs who perpetrated this fraud.
          Overall nationwide I am pleased with the results. We sent a clear message to Obummer, who was thumped. But has he listened? Hell no, he’s going off on a $2 billion tour of India and Asia with a delegation of 3,000. When will this jerk stop wasting our money?

          • Dan az

            Palin12
            If some one would check the facts I think that with just that vacation it exceeded the national deficit at one time not to long ago!

          • Kinetic1

            Once again some right wing blogger reports on an unsubstantiated claim (this time from the indian press) and Rush, Beck, Hannity and even politicians like Bachman run with it like it’s fact. Yes, the President is going on a good will tour of Asia as part of a G20 meeting. Yes, it will be expensive as Presidential trips always have been. But all this noise about 20 million dollars a day, 34 navy vessels, fighter squadrons etc. is just that, noise. It’s no more credible than Bachman’s claim that the census will be used to round up Republicans in re-education camps.

          • Palin12

            You missed the point Kinetic. This trip to India is the epitome of wasteful government spending. Bringing that huge contingent and staying at 5-star hotels for all of them is a waste of taxpayer dollars. Goodwill tour, my ass.

          • Jana

            Yes, and he wasn’t even in the country very long and just like that with the snap of a finger he created 50,000 jobs for Americans. I do hope that is true, but when we see it I will believe it. How much did it cost to create these jobs? What was the deal? Was it more of the same ole same ole similar to the bail out money.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            Jana,
            This trip accomplished something I thought I’d never see or hear! I heard on the radio today that one of the accomplishments of this trip to India has resulted in Harley Davidson opening up an assembly plant in India! Harley Davidson!! An american Icon down the drain!!!

          • Kinetic1

            G20 meetings have always required a huge contingent. Presidents bring staff along to continue the work they would normally be doing in the White House, and the G20 adds to that number. As to the 5 star accommodations, again we are depending on the information provided by one foreign reporter. Show me some proof and a cost comparison to past presidential trips before you waste my time with unsupported accusations.

          • Palin12

            Regardless what past administrations have done, the time has come to reign in unneccessary wasteful government spending. It has to stop sometime and that time is NOW. Obummer is defineatly adding to the deficit with this unnecessary trip which is nothing more than an expensive vacation for himself and his loyal cronies. We the People have had enough and we let it be known Nov.2

          • Kinetic1

            Here’s a bit of news from the UK about President Obama’s “wasteful trip”…

            “American firms are set to finalise deals worth around $10bn (£6bn) with India that will support 54,000 jobs back home, senior White House aide Michael Froman told reporters.”

            “Some 20 deals are in the pipeline, including an engine contract for General Electric and a $2.7bn commission for passenger aircraft from Boeing for one of India’s fast-expanding private airlines. However, the $4.5bn sale by Boeing of C-17 military transport planes is still being negotiated.”

            That’s $10 BILLION being negotiated for the U.S. economy. I know you want to find fault in everything President Obama does, but sometimes there is a good reason that is just beyond your grasp.

          • Palin12

            And why would anyone at all, expect Nevada to be on the up and up? Its not like they are exactly a state of people and government with morals. Look at the national statistics in the following categories – Murder, Rape, Bankruptcy, Spousal Abuse, Divorce, Fraud, Robbery, and there are a few others I missed here. Nevada is in the top 5 in all this stuff, and the leaders in more than a few of them. Even their commercials on TV tought sin. “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”. Satan has a stronghold on this state, and he definately owns their politicians also. Why else would a state with a rampant run away unemployement rate of 14 percent and rising, re-elect the guy whose policies is a direct cause of it? Why? Corruption at its best.

            Joe H, why didn’t NObama do this in his first two years instead of working so hard on the health care bill, and the Cap & Trade bill that the majority of the people did not want. These two above things were his pet peeves that he wanted to pass right away before the people could figure out what was taking place. These two bills will be disasterous to our wallets. Fortunately, he did not have time to ram the Cap & Trade bill through the Senate. This should go to show you, and others, that NObama is a Narcissistic person by wanting to get his own way first, and everyone else comes last. If you can’t see this, you are totally blind and beyond any help.

        Freedom Fighter, you are so right! Just an aside: a group of Minnesotans (I live here) went through each ballot to check them out and seems as though a lot of incarcerated men were somehow allowed(?) to vote. After their votes were removed from the total, Al Franken lost the election by many more than enough but, the powers-that-be could not change the results so far after the election.

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          Al Franken. Now there is a piece of work. The guy sucked as a comedian, and it continues to this day. Scary that there are that many nut jobs in Minnesota to even make that a close election. Scary. But then again, people were stupid enough in New York to vote for Hillary Clinton to come in and jack up their taxes and loot their state. And Nevada was dumb enough to vote for Harry Reid. And Massachusetts and Barney Frank? Well, they did vote that druken Ted guy in time and time again, along with Herman Munster.

      • Kinetic1

        Boy I get tired of setting you people straight. The Bush administration spent 5 years investigating and prosecuting voter fraud. In all that time they only found 128 cases to prosecute and of those only 84 lead to convictions. Voter fraud is not rampant. It is a straw man being used to convince you that the Democrats can only win by cheating. Sorry kids, it plays both ways.

        Why are you screaming about things you have no proof of and ignoring the 2004 election where an Ohio precinct worker was seen dumping ballots into a dumpster behind the polls? How about this Washington Post article from 2008 that reads
        “A voting system used in 34 states contains a critical programming error that can cause votes to be dropped while being electronically transferred from memory cards to a central tallying point, the manufacturer acknowledges.”
        These are the real stories of election fraud and Republicans are not without fault.

          The fact, alleged or proven, of problems in the past does NOT excuse problems in the present!

          • Kinetic1

            Agreed. Dump the touch screen voting and return to good old pen and ink. There have been problems and there will continue to be problems, but all the noise about groups like ACORN submitting registration forms for Mickey Mouse or dead people is childish. The only people being cheated here are the groups who pay registration workers on a per person basis as those names rarely make it onto the voting roster. In the mean time, fear of just such a fraud epidemic is used by people like Katharine Harris to purge tens of thousands of legal voters from the rosters, claiming they are all felons. That activity didn’t stop after 2000.

            Thank you Wayne, for pointing out the truth.

      • Jean Murphy

        Many people making comments are right on point. There most definitely was Vote Fraud in Nevada & Calif.. Go to the Secretary of State site in both states. There’s a pdf form for complaints about vote fraud. Download it, print it & fax it to the Sec. of State. Make them investigate. If the Sec. of State is Democrat, demand an impartial party oversee the recount.

        Boxer & Reid should never have won elections. This country has been hell bent on not re-electing incumbent Democrats. Harry Reid played a lot of dirty tricks on Angle. We all know he could not have won honestly.

        The Administration couldn’t afford to lose the largest Democrat state, which is Calif., hence vote fraud. And the Unions poured $90 million into the election for Democrats in Calif.. Fight it people.

        We do need our new Congress to pass a law that NO UNION is allowed to fund any campaign. First of all they use union dues. Who pays those dues? Hard working people. Most certainly they are not all one party & had no say whatsoever where their dues went or for what party.

        More than one person agrees that EVERYONE voting must prove who they are & if they are an American Citizen. I agree as well. One more thing Congress needs to address & pass a law on.

        Democrats need to stop whining & start working with the Republicans. Take their heads out of Obamas a$$ & work for the American people. No more party ego trips. For now they all should be called the AMERICAN PARTY.

        There’s many issues we want Congress to address & fix, but they need to hear from all of us. They want to stop the spending & help the economy. One way they can do this is to cut all Federal Employees Annual income. Obama gets $400,000 a year & a $50,000 monthly allowance for some crap. The average annual income is between $150,000 to $193,000. We are the employers, they are the employees. We want to downsize, hence cut all salaries by 10% until unemployment in every state is below 5%. Cut Obamas’ income by 20%. Just about all his expenses are paid for, so why should he get so much? Who cares he’s playing the roll of president? I sure don’t.

        Another way to cut is Michelle Obamas’ aids. She’s hired 28!!! Hillary Clinton only had 3 as first lady & all the rest had less. Fire them.

        How many companies outsource jobs? If that’s how they want to work it, then they need a wake up call. Congress can impose a major hike on the IMPORT TAX. It’ll cost them tons of money to get their products back into the US to sell. Automobile manufacturers. Duh. How many jobs were lost because they have cars build elsewhere. How about a 70% import tax on every vehicle? Allow them to have parts made in other countries, but demand all vehicles be assembled in the U.S?

        There’s so much our new Congress is capable of doing. I know you think that Obama can just veto whatever they try to do. But, did you know that a majority of votes in Congress & the Senate can OVERRIDE HIS VETO?
        Yes they can………. This is why Democrats must now work with the Republicans if they seriously want to help our economy.

        We all need to tell them that’s exactly what WE WANT THEM TO DO. If not, they must not care about their jobs much. We can fire a lot more of them in 2012. Tell them that too. Obama thinks that the American public is stupid, ignorant. He has not learned to LISTEN. We see that more clearly than he thinks. Who’s the idiot?

        Folks, if you want proof that Obama is or is not legally our president, we all need to tell Congress to compel him to produce his long form birth certificate & all other documents he’s been hiding. They alone cam force the issue. We don’t want him impeached. We want proof that he has no right to be our president. Then everything he signed is repealed automatically. Not legal. Abolished.

        God Bless you all & America

          Dr. Jerri Wilson, Those dumb Communist Congress Members that ran on the democratic ticket, like Barney Frank and Harry Reid, and so many others, will not allow this to happen.

            Oh contrare! The Repups are stumpimg for her to take that spot!

            She’s the best person from their point of view to further erode the
            Democrat’s numbers in the House. As they put it, she’s the best thing that’s happened in giving unemployed Republicans a job.

            And I, too, say “keep her there!” She’s more responsible than almost anyone in this corrupt administration for the turnover of 600+ seats in state legislatures, and the largest change of Congressional numbers since 1938. You go gal!

          • Kinetic1

            And again, Vigilant, I will point you too the fact that very, VERY few progressives lost their seats. The majority of the losses were Blue Dogs from Conservative areas.

          She did say she was proud of what she did. One of the things she did was get a lot of her own party fired. They deserved to be fired for not listening to their constituents, and listening to her.
          Unfortunately, she was not up for re-election at this time, but she is from California and would probably have won hands down. There are some stupid acting states out there and Nevada and California are among them.

          • Laura Ayala

            California – these people don’t know how to work, only play. That is why they don’t mind Mexico invading our country. They are so used to having Mexicans to do all their work, they can’t survive without them. A company I worked for had a branch in LA. I have never had to deal with such a bunch of stupid people. As for work performance, maybe they worked 10 hrs. out of every 40 they were paid for and when they did get some of their work right, they always had to have a celebration luncheon or party, or time off. Look at their commercials promoting CA. They advertise the fact that “we don’t work, we play”.

          • Dagney

            She is Speaker of the HOUSE. That means she is a Congressperson, not a Senator and must stand for re-election every 2 years. I’m in California and I heard NOTHING about her opponent. But, to beat her in her looney district in San Francisco, it would take a VERY strong Tea Partier to crack through all the Communist noise up there. As I said, I am from California and I have been Conservative all my life. It pains me, but I’m considering leaving this beautiful state.

          • Jana

            Dagney,
            I knew she was in the House, I just didn’t realize that she was running for re-election at this time. I just thought since I hadn’t heard her talking about it or anyone else talking about it that she must not be. As I said above to Kate8, this was an oops moment for me.
            I won’t forget this lesson every 2 years, every 2 years. Got it.

          • Kate8

            Dagney, Of course I know Nancy Pelosi is SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. I live in California.

If I screw up today , chill out because it will most likely happen again tomorrow !!! The brain thinks one thing and the fingers type something else, or I can’t see the keys so it’s anybodys guess which one I hit ! Figure it out or pass me by is what I say ! Sometimes I spell things right and some times I hit the wrong keys and sometimes I don’t hit the key hard enough so I end up with a letter missing! Like you said, what you going to do? It’s life !

Oh here is a real good idea Nancy. If supporting them is near and dear to your heart, use your own money and put your own money where your mouth is, not OUR money. Leech.

    • Harold Olsen

      I read something the other day that one Democrat, I don’t remember which one or which committee he chaired, was going to demand, based on his seniority, that he keep his chairmanship. He claimed that just because Democrats are no longer in charge Republicans have no right to strip them of their chairmanships.

      • Kate8

        Harold – Where is this mentality coming from? You lose, you go. That’s it. We get to decide (theoretically).

        While it’s mainly democrats who have this concept of entitlement (they think that if they’ve held seats they own them), just look at the Republican incumbent in Alaska. Another mess that will have to be fought out.

          The problem with these people is they are part of a generation that believes in just letting your kids do their thing and if they are upset they have a right to be. There is no restraint today, no manners, no eticut and no sense of right from wrong ! I know of a young girl that just announced on the net that she was PG and oh by the way I’m getting married ! Her family found out about it and saw it on the net and now she is in big trouble and just can’t figure out why ! Her defence is, so what everyone is doing it and I’m not hurting anybody but myself so ! This is her second without a father! She is on welfare and is getting some support from the first guy, who knows about this guy ? The thinking of people is all screwed up now days! Should be a lot less spareing of the rod and a lot more using it ! We people support abortion over prevention there is something wrong with that picture! This world is messed up !

        Harold,
        If you can’t find the proof, don’t post the claim. I have searched and searched and the only thing I can find is some debate over a state Dem party leader who doesn’t feel the need to step down. Could you be talking about Pelosi’s decision to run for minority leader in spite of calls from Blue Dog Dems for her to sit it out?

        • Jana

          It could be here in Texas. The State House leader thinks he will remain in power even though he is now in the minority. The Republicans are saying differently.

          • Kinetic1

            I don’t think so. Joe Straus is the current speaker and he’s a Republican.

          • Jana

            well, my batting average isn’t doing too well on my states. Thanks for the correction.

      Just a reminder: When Obama took office our country was bleeding 700,000 jobs per month. Over the last 9 months our economy has been adding jobs albeit at a slow pace but still adding jobs not losing jobs. Fact! Obama stopped the next Great Depression with his stimulus and TARP..Please note that TARP was Bush’s legislature! If the Tea Party were in office 2 years ago we would all be standing in soup lines, our bank accounts would have been wiped out with every ATM across this great country. Bailing out America and its financial institutions was a bitter pill to swallow but anything less would have been futile. Fact!

      • Vigilant

        nick,

        The campaigning stopped on 2 November (except for Obama, who’s never been able to switch out of campaign mode). the American people voted and guess what? They didn’t believe your nonsense either. Get over it, you guys lost BIG TIME, and that makes most of us very happy!

        • Jana

          nick,
          Reread Vigilant’s post again. That goes for me too.
          Finally the people woke up to the truth and are not buying the lies any more.

          • Kate8

            Jana, Vigilant, I just read this morning on Newsmax that, in spite of Odumbo’s comments about civility with Congress, he told the folks at MoveOn.org that he would not compromise one bit on his ‘core principles’. He said that the left has always had setbacks, and always rises up again to push further.

            The difference now is that the people are catching on in a big way. Their only hope is that those coming out of colleges and the continued influx of foreign welfare recipients will boost their voters.

            That’s why I say we need to halt immigration, both legal and illegal, and revamp the education system. We should be able to do this if there is the will.

          • Kinetic1

            Please note that only 3 Progressives lost their seats in congress. Most of the Dems ousted were Blue Dogs, and we don’t miss them either. In fact, this may mean that the Democrats will be more united behind Pelosi.

            The Tea Party didn’t do as well as you might think either. Less than 50% of the TP candidates won, and many of these so called “new” candidates are long time Washington insiders. It will be interesting to see just how many betray the Tea Party, and how much those who hold to their TP ideals can get done.

          • Jana

            Kinctic,
            It isn’t about the TEA Party. It is about the normal every day ordinary citizens of this country who know and remember what this country was founded on, and the freedoms we espouse. Not all of us are Sr. citizens either. I have not gone to a TEA Party, but I support the gathering of citizens to stand for our great Constitution and freedom.
            Sadly this is what the Democratic party used to stand for too, until they allowed themselves to be taken over by Socialist and Communists.

            We are trying to work in and with the system that we have, and reclaim the Republican party for the goodness that we know can and should be had. I personally have written off the Democrats.

          • Vigilant

            Kinetic opines, “Please note that only 3 Progressives lost their seats in congress. Most of the Dems ousted were Blue Dogs, and we don’t miss them either.”

            That’s about the sorriest and most laughable of sour grapes gripes I’ve seen. You’ve been caught putting lipstick on a pig, my friend.

            And then you say, “The Tea Party didn’t do as well as you might think either. Less than 50% of the TP candidates won, and many of these so called “new” candidates are long time Washington insiders.”

            Another attempt at smoke and mirrors. Roughly 50% for a movement that’s only two years old is damned impressive. Face it, you lost, and you might accept it with grace, but that’s beyond the capabilities of a far leftie.

            BTW, how many of the lefties are “Washington insiders?”

          • Kinetic1

            Vigilent,
            It’s not about sour grapes, it’s about the reality of the situation. Day after day I read complaints on this site about RINOs who should be thrown out. The TEA Party cheers every time one of their candidates wins a primary over a moderate, even if it mans the Republicans will loose in the election. So why should you be surprised that I am happy to see the Blue Dogs go? For 2 years the press hounded the Dems because they had a “Super Majority” but still couldn’t get bills through. That was the Blue Dogs! Without them we are more united. Without them we have a chance to stand as a solid block of Progressive ideals. Yes, of course I would prefer not to loose, but what good is winning if you don’t actually have any power?

            As to Washington insiders, Progressives aren’t the ones complaining. We see the value in a seasoned leader who knows how to get things done. We’ve seen the lobbyists dragging the freshmen around by the collar and we don’t like it. So let the TEA Party bring in candidates who don’t know their way around a law, we prefer a candidate who doesn’t need a corporation to write laws for them.

      • vicki

        Nick misplaces a few facts
        “Fact! Obama stopped the next Great Depression with his stimulus and TARP..Please note that TARP was Bush’s legislature!”

        That the next Great Depression has been stopped is yet to be proved.
        That the legislature that voted for TARP was Bush’s
        That TARP was Obamas though in a rare display of decisevness Obama did vote “Yea” instead of “Present”.

        Nick also mentioned an increase in jobs but fails to account for the increase in “official” unemployment.

        • Jana

          vicki,
          He also didn’t state the FACT that most of these created jobs were in the Government.

            What none of the Dems talk about is the true unemployment rate, Let history tell the tail, Obama will replace that peanut farmer (nothing against farmers as I to am one) as the worse pres in the history on this here USA.

            Jana,
            One thing I don’t understand is if all these jobs have been produced over the last 9 months, then why is the unemployment rate still 9.6%???

          • Jana

            Joe H.,
            Exactly. This just shows they still have lost many many more jobs than they even thought of creating. Of course we know Obama tells us what he wants us to think.

          • Kinetic1

            Jana,
            You stated that “most of these created jobs were in the government.” Actually, while this may have been true during the census, the most recent numbers showed a lower than expected rise due to falling government employment. The real growth was in the private sector.

            Last night he had a show on the Bilderberg, who they are, and what they are doing. He also had a show on the planned economic destruction of America. And Obama is definitely part of it, slowly taking ALL the money from us and giving it to the elite banksters.

            2 reasonable (and scary) possibilities.

            2. The government (this is a government statistic. Right?)

            I choose C. ALL OF THE ABOVE

          • Kinetic1

            There was little credible information to comment on, and the closing sort of summed up where this rant was coming from, but if you insist….

            “The so called stimulus package was actually a Government take over. Just like when Castro took over Cuba. The ideal in America is opportunity! If you make lousy decisions in your business, then your business or bank deserves to fail.”

            Yes, the banks did deserve to fail, but the economic impact on the world would have been devastating. To let them go down would have been the proverbial “cutting off ones nose to spite their face” and besides, many of these “Bailouts” have been repaid with interest.

            “These banks and businesses chose to make sub-prime loans to people they knew would not be able to pay. At least Obama could have swept house when he took these businesses over and fired all of the executives that approved the kind of business they were doing.”

            Right, just like he did with GM and we know how well Conservatives accepted that. No matter what he did, President Obama was going to get grief for it.

            “Now Obama is still talking about taking over our medical care.”

            Yes, and if the Blue Dogs had just been more receptive, if Obama hadn’t been so concerned about bipartisanship and let the Republicans drag out the process and tear it down in the media we would have the universal care that most Americans favored in the beginning. (2007 AP poll, 65%, Feb 2009 CBS/NYTimes 59%)

            “What do you call Obama wanting to take over the 401k’s and IRA’s of private citizens?”

            An attempt to prevent the catastrophic losses we incurred under Bush from ever happening again. Thank God Bush didn’t get his way with privatization of Social Security!

            “To pay off the countries debt. That is dicatorship(sic). Do you know nothing about how Cuba was destroyed? Now everyone drives cars that are 50 yrs. old, stand on lines for food, can’t work at what they want to do, but what the government wants them to do.”

            I won’t waste my time.

            “There would be no problem with Social Security if our government had not raped the Social Security Emergency Fund to pay for their pork projects.”

            True, if Reagan hadn’t started the ball rolling by taking $94.5 Billion to cover up some of the debt he incurred by cutting taxes and overspending on defense, If G.H.W. Bush had not followed suit by stealing $211 Billion to cover his butt, if Clinton hadn’t taken $99 Billion in 1998 (and more throughout his 8 years) to show a surplus, and if Dubbya hadn’t doubled down by cutting taxes while taking the whole pot, some $1.4 TRILLION DOLLARS while still running up a national debt in the Trillions, we would be in MUCH better shape.

            “The economy is so bad, yet Congress voted themselves a big raise! They knew they were going to get their ass kicked so they made sure they upped their salaries so when they got kicked out they would have a bigger retirement. Hell it would not surprise me at all if Obama had Bin Laden hidden in one of our governmental bunkers!! He hates Americans, hates whites.”

            And finally a justified slam on Congress if they allowed the automatic raise to go through, and then the suggestion that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer (if not a Muslim himself) and a accusation of racism. Sure, why not go after the guy who took over for Bush. Why not make baseless accusations about his failures while he tries to deal with a bank bail out (Bush’s) an auto bailout (started by Bush) and a record debt with massive unemployment (left over from Bush). Why didn’t he fix a Social Security system that has been bleed dry over the last 28 years? Why didn’t he fix everything in two years with the Republicans yelling “Hell No you can’t” even when he was proposing bills the Republicans sponsored just a year or two earlier? Obviously, he hates America and whites!

            So yes, I had something to say about this whole rant, and I might have taken it more seriously in the first place if not for the final racist accusations. I feel the same way about those of you who keep calling the President “old Purple lips.” If you can’t control your racist feelings, don’t expect to be taken to seriously.

        Woah !

        Back up Nickie boy ! You don’t have a clue of what you are talking about ! Florida has just lost thousands of jobs just with the lay-offs at the Space Center ! That place is like a city of it’s own and when they start closing down your talking jobs from as far away as Palm Bay and Orlando and Daytona and all the little burgs in between. So when Obama lies about all the jobs he has made you better check his figures twice! Another thing about the Space center is when jobs there go it effects the Space program in several other places Like Calif. Texas and Huntsville Ala. and several other places not to mention all the small places that supply support and parts for all the supplies for the Space center ! So when someone says they created so many new jobs I guarentee you they didn’t creat as many as they did away with ! This job creation is BS ! If the gov.wants to start creating jobs they need to start funding the Space program again and put those newly laid-off people back to work. That Space program is responsible for many of the things that we take for granted today like computers, calculaters and many new medical technologies and even freeze dried food that most of us survivalists use for storage ! To do away with that program shows Obama is brain dead !

    An important election just ended. We don’t need to celebrate. No world-class victory has materialized. Basically, a message has been sent. This could be the calm before the storm, or it might be another round of ‘Business-as-Usual 101, Plan B.’
    The enemy still exists. Some of the more disgusting players are still in office. Perhaps the best news of the day is that the Wicked @#^*! of the West has to surrender her gavel (and pull every string she can to stay out of prison).
    If there’s any justice left in Washington, investigators should be meeting to INDICT and CONVICT. How can anyone with a thirst for justice not see how Nancy thinks SHE is above the laws of the land?

      I knew that hatchet faced witch (Pelosi) was no good. What tipped me off was back in ’06 when she came into power, the 1st words out of her mouth after going up into the White House and polishing Dubya’s knob was: “They’ll be no talk of impeachment.” From that point forward, its been all downhill.

      • Bob Wire

        “w” impeachment was not a constructive move. Equal to closing the gate after the cows were already out. Just too late! It would have been a long hard fought process, an embarrassment to the office and the American people. Not to mention we didn’t have enough hard evidence at the time.

        More the same with Obama as some call for his impeachment, the evidence just isn’t there. Only the desire.

        • spike

          You know, Bob, and others…why do we even talk the “impeachment” talk, because we back it up with nothing. NO-THING! Bill Clinton was not removed from office after he was caught in a huge moral lie, and sexual harrassment, and whatever ACORN would now call it. If that moron was not impeached and removed, then even this purple lipped ass will not be. And he knows it. He swaggered up to the podium on Wednesday to pay “purple lip service ” to the elected, and take his small swipes at the fact that “we’re happier on some days than others”… So, if we have no hard evidence against him, then we’re stuck! So hold these people, and John Boehner accountable! Stop talking about what we DON’T HAVE and celebrate what we DO HAVE!. Enough of the useless bitching! Let’s move FORWARD America. Get our tails out from between our legs, and Move Forward!

          Bob, If you did your homework you would know that the evidence is not only there, but more than overwhelming, against Obama.

          They just can’t find a judge willing to risk career (possibly even life) to hear the case. Certainly not more than a handful of congressmen would speak up for the same reason, except to mollify their constituents.

          The judges are dangling on strings just like the members of Congress. We’ll see how many of the newly-elected maintain their sense of integrity when the Big Machine starts to put on the pressure.

            WMD’s was a false pretext for war. The pressure placed on Joe Wilson’s “bad news” and sequential indictment of Scooter Libby was all “cover up” and at this juncture can never be proven with the commuted sentence of Scooter Libby via presidential pardon.

          Bob Wire has shown his ignorance again.

          “w” impeachment was not a constructive move. Equal to closing the gate after the cows were already out. Just too late!”

          You obviously don’t understand our Constitutional system of justice in America. Impeachment and conviction are always and necessarily done AFTER the alleged crime is committed, gate closed. Prior restraint doesn’t allow impeachment based on things you think MIGHT happen (kind of like Obama getting the Nobel Prize for what he might do).

          President Bush committed no impeachable offense. You know damn well the Dems would have pushed it if they thought they had a chance of succeeding. And don’t give me this “Patriot Act” BS. Congress voted for it (Dems and Repubs alike), it is Constitutional, and Obama w/ Congress extended it.

          Clinton committed perjury, an impeachable offense, and the gutless Democrats prevented his conviction by voting purely along party lines to trash the Constitution.

          Obama’s impeachability derives from his wanton disregard for the Constitution, failing to enforce Federal laws (immigration, voter intimidation), and signing into law a program that unconstitutionally forces individuals to purchase a commercial product (health care fiasco).

          The only reason he won’t be impeached is that the Dems would again vote along party lines, and it takes 2/3 majority to convict. Some highly principled people, these Democrats!

            Vigilante;yada,yada Get off the Clinton merry-go-round. The whole impeachment issue was a set up and by Linda Tripp and Monica Lewinsky. We all know the Republicans and Democrats had urgent business to take care of but this was just too juicy of an issue to pass up. It became a real headline grabber for the Republicans. Opportunity doesn’t knock often enough for the mudslingers. Obama has been working on the immigration issue. Oh,it’s not to you’re liking so that becomes an impeachment issue! The issue would have been front and center but those pesky little Republicans screwed up the economy so other problems became even more urgent. We’ll see what happens in the coming year. Yes, immigration better be on the table.

            If Obama could be impeached for “failing to enforce Federal laws (immigration..” then so could Bush. In fact, the numbers show that this administration is deporting more illegals then the Bush administration! Also, Bush admits to ordering water-boarding during his time in office. As that act is considered torture by the conventions we signed, Bush has admitted to another impeachable offense.

            As for Clinton, the Republicans spent millions and wasted years trying to find something to pin on Clinton and all they could do was catch him lying about his sex life. That was the most worthless impeachment hearing ever conceived and deserved no more then what it produced.

          • Vigilant

            eddie:

            It’e not just the ignorance of the left that irks me, it’s the disregard for the rule of law.

            I repeat: Clinton committed perjury, an impeachable offense. It doesn’t matter if it was a shoplifting charge; it became an impeachable offense the moment he lied under oath. And there’s no way out of it!

            The repeated attempts by the liars like you to perpetuate the myth that it was about sexual peccadilloes is worse than dishonest.

          • eddie47d

            You have no idea what is important and what is truly urgent. Maybe when you look at the economy or al Qaeda as being more important instead of someones sexual act;then I might listen . You hide behind controvsey instead of solutions.That makes you part of the problem.

          • Vigilant

            eddie,

            Your ignorance would fill volumes.

            “You have no idea what is important and what is truly urgent.”

            Your absolute failure to understand that perjury by the chief law enforcement officer of the United States is an impeachable crime simply proves my point about thick-headed ignoramus’ on the left. When will you and other 4th-grade-educated fools understand that it was about PERJURY, not sex? Never, I guess.

            Absolute disrespect for the rule of law is what the left is all about. Don’t use the tools provided by the Constitution to effect change, just bypass, circumvent, sidestep or flat violate its provisions to get your way.

            “You hide behind controvsey instead of solutions. That makes you part of the problem.”

            And you, my fine feathered friend, hide behind propaganda and falsehoods. Logical discussions of fact are a phenomenon with which you have no acquaintance.

          • Vigilant

            kinetic:

            “If Obama could be impeached for “failing to enforce Federal laws (immigration..” then so could Bush.

            Yes, and Obama and Holder took it well beyond failure to enforce, they are now actively obstructing justice with their frivolous law suit against Arizona. If you think that is in any way justified, then you have no respect for the Constitution.

            “In fact, the numbers show that this administration is deporting more illegals then the Bush administration!”

            Odd you should punctuate that with an exclamation point, as if it conclusively disproves Obama’s aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Double a trickle of weater and all you get is a larger trickle of water. To even imply that Obama is serious about our national security in stemming the flow of illegals to this country is worse than disingenuous; it’s intellectual dishonesty!

            And then you have the audacity to claim, “Also, Bush admits to ordering water-boarding during his time in office. As that act is considered torture by the conventions we signed, Bush has admitted to another impeachable offense.”

            Thank you, Mr. Bader-Ginsburg, for appealing to international covenants and protocols to indict what you perceive as bad behavior. There was an important document ratified in 1789 that lays out what’s legal and illegal in this country. You would do well to read it some time.

          • Kinetic1

            Vigilant,
            Let’s see, in the Constitution, Article 2, section 2 clause 2, we have the Treaty Clause. As a result, it is generally accepted that in American law international accords become part of the body of U.S. federal law. Under Article 2, the President must have consent from the Congress to make such treaties, and they must, in general approve the end of an approved treaty as well. I don’t recall Congress giving President Bush the go ahead to torture before or after the fact. Just because Bush felt that he could make law as he went, often using “signing statements” to exempt himself from new laws does not mean that he is not guilty.

            We prosecuted Japanese soldiers for torture when they water-boarded Americans during WWII, and just because we decided to change our definition of torture when we wanted to use it doesn’t excuse us. Bush violated the Geneva Conventions, and until the Congress agrees to end our support of that group of treaties, they are part of our American law.

      Yeah yeah yeah. I also didn’t know about the committee’s and also the defunding that is marvelous. To assist taking back our country, I have written my congressman on behalf of my voting family and congradulated him on his win and making sure he knew we voted for him and then went in great detail about the things that I am looking forward to him being involved in changing. Believe me it was a long list starting with Obamacare and listing all the things that were in the bill that had nothing to do with healthcare and not to repeal, to throw out because it is unconstitutional and start over. Then I have an email group that I send emails to everyday, some funny, some informative etc., and I asked all of them to do the same and advising they could use my letter and just change the names or send their own. Anyway, we shall see what transpires. My congressman sends at least weekly updates of what is going on in Congress. People don’t forget about Eric Canter, the Senate Whip who has the Youcut program. I am sending him a letter also, that they should look at every program that is presently be funded by the US Goverment and eliminate duplicates, believe me there are many many duplicates, get rid of agencies that are doing nothing. I receive from him weekly, Congressional agenda’s for the week. Believe people it is hilarious. For weeks on end they are busy naming post offices. I couldn’t believe it!!!!!!

I guess when Sharon Angle made the statement that she was going to enforce the border laws against illegals this made the Hispanics panick, and vote for dirty Harry.

        Everyone knows the elections in places like Nevada and California were dirty. The unions spend huge sums buying the loyalties of weasels like Reid, Boxer, Brown…and outright lying in their campaign ads. Then they intimidate the union members by having big bosses strong-arm the ones who are wavering.

        These practices have become acceptable for some reason, feeding people distortions and outright lies and even threats. We need to put a stop to this. People can’t make wise decisions when they are fed erroneous, convoluted information.

        Had Meg Whitman won in California, we’d be having people thinking about building businesses here again. We’d be looking at hope for jobs. But because of lies and smears, we’ve got yet another democrat who will continue the downgrade and complete socialist takeover of this state.

He should be tested on this. I am sure if the folks had know about NObama’s background they would not have voted for him. I didn’t like McCain very well either, but I cast my vote for him over NObama. At least we knew something about McCain’s background and the fact he was a war veteran.

      And they do not have that, anyone watching and listening to the ads on radio and TV, with an open mind not clouded by party line blinders and personal dislike of people could see and hear the blatant lies that where produced by all parties involved. Unfortunately most of the sheep and this is meant for both sides..did discard the lies, had they’re party line blinders on and went to vote.
      Does ANYONE really believe ANYTHING will change? Nothing, absolute nothing will change.The change in the US is not driven by individual politicians but by the people behind the scene that do NOT care about you or me or the million other sheep out there that had the wool pulled over they’re eyes. There will be some bickering going on in DC to appease the sheep and to put up a show, but the direction of this country will NOT change. If you would plot the march of this country toward a one world quasi socialist world order on a graph in a spread sheet you would see that it is essential a linear process…yes there are some wiggles in the curve…mostly to appease the voting sheep if the powers to be went ahead a little to fast….but essentially, the march always continues…..and it is a march we the voters have NOTHING to say about….we are just the pawns in the chess game.
      In the end, we will end up with a upper ruling class, a nanny one world government and we the people will be the slaves to be culled to just the right amount to support the ruling class….because if there are too many, there will always be the danger of an uprising.

      I’m with you except for Ron Paul. There’s something about him that bothers me but it’s something I am not able to define. The last time I voted for a Democrat for president was in 1972. Yeah, I was one of the dozen or so idiots who voted for McGovern. I cheered when he lost. Even though I was a Democrat until 1978 I never again voted for a Democrat and never will again. I won’t say I won’t vote for a Republican. I’m an Independent. I would have to see who is running first. I will only vote for someone whom I deem to be a TRUE conservative. Right now, none of the Republicans I’ve heard named as possible candidates are what I would call TRUE conservatives, including Gingrich, among others. My days of voting for the lesser of two evils is over. I’ll be looking closely at third party candidates if I don’t like the Republican candidate and I will vote for the person whom I believe in whether they have a chance of winning or not. I consider voting for someone I DON’T believe in to be wasting my vote.

      • DaveH

        Kudos, Harold.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        My path is similar. I voted and was raised a democrat, until Ronald Reagan came along, then I switched and I stayed there. I still much, much prefer the Republicans to the Democrats, as the liberal have degressed to be very anti-American. And the Republicans much to my dismay did not reign in spending. I was looking at the libertarians, and unlike a lot of voters, I choose to educate myself as to who the candidates are, where they are from, what they stand for, and what their party stands for. I really like a lot of the things the Libertarians stand for, but sometimes it seems on the edge of anarchy on some things, where it seems they want to cut all government controls out, and you cannot do that. Oh yes, it definately needs cut back big time, in a huge way, and no one can doubt that. But there has to still be something to govern and keep things legal and in control. And from all Ive seen, they seem to be fine with kicking God to the curb, and I myself cannot and will not vote for a Godless party, and that is exactly why I dont vote democrat anymore. Its that simple. Give me God and country, and your representing my ideals. Either one of them is missing, and my vote will be missing from you.

      I agree, Anthony.
      I used to vote Republican whenever there wasn’t a Libertarian on the ticket. But after the latest round of property tax increases in a bad economy, I emailed my Republican reps (the majority in our state legislature) and told them I was through voting for Republicans. I believe now that voting for them only rubber stamps their bad behavior.

        Laura,
        I heard that too, and that is just plain wrong on the part of the states that failed to get those ballots out. they should be fined and fined heavily.

        • Granny Mae

          I agree! Soldiers should get their balots first and then all the rest !

      • Wayne

        Yes! of course because because they know that the prisoners would vote Democratic, and the Military would most likely support the Republicans. Most of the folks in the military are responsible citizens so there fore they would vote for the Republican or Conservative party. There is a lot of dirty things going on in the voting booth. I don’t think they want to change it. It would hurt the Democrats.

        • Michael J.

          Wayne,
          Right you are about the Military support for Republicans. And that is why our Military is currently being targeted for infiltration by the gay community who predominately vote Democrat. This is yet another tenacle of Political Correctness and its ongoing persuit of the collapse of western society.
          Political Correctness also played a part in the Fort Hood massacre when fellow soldiers did not speak out about the actions of Major Nidal Hasan leading up to his shooting spree for fear of being labeled racist.

          • Wayne

            Michael J, you are right on. I don’t like to use a strong word like hate, but I hate all this political correctness crap. It is ruining this country and getting people killed as we all know that it got the soldiers killed at Fort Hood. Shortcuts like XMAS, for Christmas, Happy Holidays for Merry Christman is another thing that rubs me the wrong way. Let’s get back to our basic principles, closer to the founders of our great Constitution. With principles we would all be closer, and united, instead of being divided. The old adage again, united we stand, divided we fall. Just look back at how this country was united during WW2. With all the dingbats we have in this country today, I just hope that we never have another war like that, or we would fact certain defeat, and maybe even annihilation.

            We have a friend that always says in these cases, “I am one tough old goat, and I have horns.”

            We have a farm with Longhorns, and after watching them use those horns to pick up a can, and chase off wild animals, I have a LOT of respect for animals with horns. I only go out in the midst of them with my husband as he knows these animals very well, and they know him. He says you never trust a wild animal, and I don’t.

            One of my friends took her litle boy to the Arberetum in Austin. They have a cow with smaller horns made out of cement and she had her 3 yr. old son in her arms and was letting him touch her nose and mama said “nose” and the child said “nose”. Then she touched its horns and she said “horns” and the little boy touched her horns and went “honk honk”.

      • Wayne

        I have been hearing that the Feds were going to do Quantitative Easing. That is they are going to put more money in circulation which will devalue the dollar. As an example: what will cost you a dollar now will cost you around $1.10 more after this is put into effect. Another one of NObama’s fiasco. Prices will rise on all items. You will most likely notice it in the grocery stores first. Below is the defintion of “Quantitave Easing” My wife said she has already noticed it.

        Investopedia explains Quantitative Easing

        Central banks tend to use quantitative easing when interest rates have already been lowered to near 0% levels and have failed to produce the desired effect. The major risk of quantitative easing is that although more money is floating around, there is still a fixed amount of goods for sale. This will eventually lead to higher prices or inflation.

        • Wayne

          Oh! I forgot to mention. The Democrats will be glad to hear that they will be paying more on goods that they buy, especially groceries. Democrats, this is what your getting for supporting NObama and his policies. Arn’t you so happy now? The only bad thing about this is that we, the Republicans will suffer rightr along with your blunder.

  • http://ByGeorge By George

    Rigidity and Saying “No!”

    President Obama (may peace be upon him) is hopeful that the new Republican House of Representatives will become so rigid in clinging to its professed conservative principles that it will self-destruct. No such luck there I’m afraid! Here in Gilmer County the local GOP’s efforts to get out the vote and to vote Republican, included among other efforts, installing big signs around the county that proclaimed: “Put ‘NO’ back into November, Vote Republican”. I hope we were not lying to the voters because that cost us some serious bucks. Rigidity, or rather a measure of backbone in our new electees, was the desired goal of that effort. That was the desired goal nation wide too. First, the winning GOP candidates are now faced with a obstacle to test their rigidity in the form of still in office RINO’s who will attempt to co-opt them to the old way of thinking. The answer to that, of course, is “No thanks, go pound sand!”

    As for the Democrats, it is now their turn to compromise with us or as Obama (may peace be upon him) so succinctly put it, “we won! so, they can ride in the back of the bus.” Our side should set the premises upon which government policies are based and future actions taken. That will be a really big job because the Progressives have spent decades slowly preparing us to think like them. As good fortune would have it, the Republicans did not capture the US Senate but just enough of it to foul up the works. The next two years can be blissful gridlock or preparing for the next election, the one that will show Obama (may peace be upon him) the road and allow the new GOP to replace Trent Lott’, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Saxby Chambliss, those two idiots from Maine, and a few others whose names do not illuminate the conservative horizon, and install acceptable conservative leaders in their place.

    Our guy’s should stand rigid against any further spending for any more entitlement programs that is not allowed by the Constitution. They should remain rigid against implementing any programs based upon discredited theories of climate change. That tawdry business was formulated by lies based upon false research, indeed manufactured data, that proves no such thing as man caused climate change but that did enriched Al Gore. So, Cap and Trade should be repudiated immediately so it doesn’t rear its ugly head again, ever. I want my incandescent light bulbs back. Earmarks, small as they really are, should also be on the chopping block as should be support of unions. Like climate change, unions are redundant and should be closed.

    Another thing the new Republicans should look at is ineffective government management practices. Why for example is $18 million in stimulus funds being paid to dead people? Why is $3.9 million being spent by HHS for heating and cooling costs for dead folks? Why does the Dept. of Agriculture spend $1.1 Billion for dead farmers? (GAO Report, June 2010). By the way, HHS also spends $15.2 million in housing subsidies for the dead. (HUD IG Report 10 Nov 2009) The Medicare subscription plan (Bush’s) pays out over $700,000. in prescriptions for 1800 people ho don’t need them because they too are dead. How about those 1200 dead doctors who are still writing prescriptions? Modern medicine is remarkable, isn’t it?. Well, this list goes on and on and on.

    It’s time to seriously get a handle on these spending abuses. Its time for our politicians to remain rigid, uncompromising and to stop adding useless programs to our debt. If we don’t do it, the TEA party will. They have tasted success. It’s their mandate, they are watching and they are about ready to lead. Go get ‘em! (05 Nov 2010)

      Hey Gary,
      I had no idea that Grayson was as you put it “odious.”
      I became aware of him via youtube when he was questioning Bernanke about where the bailout money went. Whats the real skinny in this guy?

      • Jeep

        Grayson is the guy that accused Republican’s of wanting sick people “to die quickly” during the health care debates. His opponent, Webster was a seasoned politician with a reputable war record. Unfortunately for the flamboyant Grayson, he accused Webster of being a terrorist and called him “Taliban Dan”. Grayson was caught lying to the Democratic Underground while fundraising (it was so bad that liberal hack Chris Mathews even called him out on it.) He openly blamed former President Bush for 9-11. And, whole host of other gaffs combined to make it clear that Grayson is unstable and unfit.

      • Wayne

        Dr. Mabuse, it didn’t take me very long to figure out that Grayson was a disgrace to Congress. I truly was not impressed with some of the things he had to say. I am glad that this clown did not make it again. I don’t know why the folks in Florida would ever vote for him in the frist place. I guess this is another case of voting for some one when you don’t know who what they stand for. Of course, I am referring to NObama.

    • George

      Gary, Grayson getting his walking papers was one of the highlights of my day. That sorry excuse of a representative of the people should now slither back into his hole to live out the rest of his pathetic life.

          Marvin, the voters are either misinformed, or very stupid to vote for a man like this. It goes to show that a lot of voters are voting for people they do not have any clue who they are voting for. If both parties would vet their respective candidates, this could all be eliminated. If any person has a felony record, that should disquality them from ever running for any public office, any where in the country. We don’t need this type of person to have power over anyone.

      Actually, since I was born and raised in the beautiful state of California, there is a LOT that could happen to have made this election much more satisfying.

I was very depressed Tuesday night. Why are people so STUPID in this state? However, seeing the results all over the rest of the country, the governorships and states legislatures has been wonderful. California, well, she needs a LOT of work.

        • Wayne

          I just heard the other night on TV that the United States has lost over 45,400 businesses since 2001. Passing Nafta certainly did not help the situation any. President Clinton signed this into law on Sept 14, 1993. This bill was also hailed by George Bush, Jimmy Carter, President Ford and Vice President Al Gore. I guess the Republican had their hands all over this one. I have never agreed with this bill, and I never will. Of course, they said it would help our businesses and manufacturing base. I think it is the reason why all of our manufacturing base left the United States. Shame on the Republicans for backing President Clinton on this.

          • Kinetic1

            Of course the Republicans backed NAFTA, it was one of many ideas that Clinton co-opted from them. Remember, it was Reagan who gave us the US/Canada trade agreement and Bush 1 worked up the idea of NAFTA with Canada and Mexico just before handing over the reigns to Clinton in ’93. Clinton mad a few tweeks to “protect American workers” and the congress finally passed it in Nov. of ’93. In fact, the roll call shows that more than half of the Dems voted against NAFTA while only one quarter of Republicans opposed it. Just one more reason to ignore the claims that Clinton was a major Liberal.

          • Jana

            I remember Clinton going to Mexico a year before he even became President to work on NAFTA. Hmmmm.

          • Vigilant

            The hype surrounding NAFTA is just that, hype.

            Studies have shown that congressional votes to approve or disapprove NAFTA originated more from local impact on constituencies than from political ideology per se. To paint NAFTA strictly as a baby of the Republicans is disingenuous. Numbers aside, you’ll find many left-leaning Dems in the “yea” column.

            NAFTA’s ultimate impact on the US economy has been shown to be minimal at best. The Unions’ claims that massive job losses would result have been proven wrong. Migration of jobs to foreign countries has been accelerated by progressive, not conservative, policies (over-regulation, confiscatory taxation and environmentalist moratoria).

          • Kinetic1

            Yes, those damn environmental standards. Just because China’s air pollution can be found wafting it’s way across the oceans to America is no reason to have high standards here! Take a look at the factories we employ over seas. We would never let our children work under these conditions, yet some of us defend corporations who leave our shores because we expect them to provide safe, clean and responsible factories. Hey, how about we pass a law that prohibits the import of products built in factories that do not meet our nation’s standards, no matter where they are based. When companies abandon us because we expect them to be good neighbors, then they deserve to be cut off.

          • Vigilant

            Kinetic1:

            “Yes, those damn environmental standards.”

            You need to make up your mind, old buddy; One of the things that held up quick passage of NAFTA was application of environmental standards. The standards were applied, NAFTA passed. When you diss NAFTA, you’re dissing those standards, too.

            My comment dealt with the reasons why jobs leave the US, and those are primarily the result of progressive ideas (like environmental over-regulation). Whatever your feeling about environmentalism may be, at least admit the truth that over-regulation is one of the reasons jobs go overseas.

            If you have any lingering doubts about that fact, consider California’s self-imposed nemesis of industry leaving the state in droves: directly attributable to over-regulation and over-taxation.

      • Brad

        Dagney,

        I spent a good majority of my youth growing up in California, a product of their school system also. The problem with California, they are still stuck in the 70′s, re-electing the same representation and failed policies that has put the state 120 billion in debt and with over a trillion in unfunded liabilities to unions and retiring employee’s. California has to tighten their belt, cut social spending cut every single union salary by 50% to include making them pay some of their so called benefits. Right now one of the more serious problems in California are the Unions, they have been the cause for one city, the one city I grew up in, to file for bankruptcy protection. I still have friends still living in Vallejo, they have been telling me gang’s, drugs and various criminal elements have taken over the city, the police do not go into certain parts after night. Schools have closed, business has moved out due to the criminals, the military is gone and Mare Island is still undeveloped (thank Boxer & Fianstien). California is still a mess and if the state legislature doesn’t reign in the states spending California may be putting itself up for sale and China may be the buyer, just a thought.

        • Bruce S

          Just a thought, why does California allow payments/support for parents of anchor babies? Children born of illegal Mexican immigrants are by Mexican law still Mexican citizens. By the very nature of being an illegal immigrant/squatter, the US immigration laws do not have legal jurisdiction on the family and therefore the family has no rights to any state or federal funds. if california would cut out all these fraudulent and illegal payments, they might stand a chance of balancing their budget. But nooo…., blind is good. Hi i am a whale, i am in a swimming pool, i must be ok. LMAO

            Speaking of California, we spent many years there back in the 60′s and 70′s during my Naval Career. We especially enjoyed our twilight tour in Pt. Mugu California. The Oxnard area was so clean, and beautiful then. There was a feeling of properity and class to the area.

            We returned to Oxnard for a few days in March of this year, and it was a totally different place than we remembered. There were buildings closed and fenced off, business’ closed and boarded up, what looked to be derelict travel trailers parked in lots and people living in them. Junky cars all over the place, some looked to be broken down and abandoned where they sat.

            And the filth and garbage everywhere we drove was totally apalling. I am not a racist, but the majority of folks we met and saw were Hispanics. Maybe that has nothing to do with it, but????

When people have to sit on their own blister after making a screwup, they will have history to fall back on and most likely will not make the same mistake again.

        And this is how the democrat’s patronage system works. Same models in Chicago, NY and the large cities on Calif. Once the army is in place it is literally impossible to compete against. Look at the the absurd results from those places and nothing changed. Three states with massive pension obligations that cannot be met and the party that caused the problem stays in power? Defies logic doesn’t it!

        Oblama and his cronies are attempting to take the democrat patronage scheme on a national tour. HC, Student Loans, Banking all have marvelous components of affirmative action which will lead to these industries being huge employers of democratic patronage workers. In fact, look at what happened with hiring of all the new IRS staff to collect all the added taxes to pay for HC. This is the main reason it is critical to disassemble this structure otherwise we will get 100 years of progressive rule. Quite insidious yes?

No matter what I said he couldn’t understand my position, and the same with Brown and Boxer. He lives in Berkely and fully supports the Global Warming scam too. he’s let the Berkely mentality indoctrinate him.

Cal is no longer a state, it has turned into a pot smoking, gimme more freebes, tow in you car and use it for a hotel, Progressive area that happens to be bordered by the United States and the Pacific ocean I do not care how beautiful it is, or where it is located. It has been taken over and I fear that the rest of us who are still givers will have to give some more.

            The people who voted him in voted him down. He threw up his hands.

        Come on Dagney, we all know why California vote the way they do. You have too many people who are not true American Citizens, too many pot smokers, and too many folks who think the rest of the country owes them a living. California is a beautiful state, but I would never want to live in that state due to the above reason. I forgot to mention the forest fires, the mudslides, and the earthquakes.

      Hi, Joan! Thank you for your support! Conservatism is on the rise even in America (where it never should have left)! People who know history and THINK know that socialism is immoral and has never worked. It has destroyed many, many lives.

      • Kate8

        We need some help out west! Our conservatives are leaving!

        We need some hardy conservatives to come back to California and help us take it back. If we allow these socialist stongholds to stand, they will spread. What happens in California sets precedent.

        We need to to pressure Congress to close the floodgates to third-world immigration. STOP IT until we can straighten out the massive cultural mess we have already. This is our only hope, because the million brought in today expand to 2 million quickly, in addition to the new millions brought in. All democrat voters.

        Then we need to get busy educating people in what freedom is really about. We need to break the democrat stranglehold on education, and stop the government intrusion (and demise) of private schools.

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          California is failed, and is doomed to fail more. The good people with any morals and the successful business’s are fleeing there as fast as they can, to escape the liberal pacifists agenda and the open borders and the lack of morals and the political correctness and the pollution and all the rich hollywood liberals with their agenda. Its been going to hell in a hand basket for years, and people are tired of it, and leaving it to its demise. It wont be long until it is a part of Mexico again anyhow. They already own the southern half. If you dont believe me, go there and walk down the street. Tell me how many people you hear speaking english. I rest my case.

Of course the earthquakes, the fires, the land slides would also worry me. I lived in Fl. for nine years and after 4 hurricanes hit the state in 2004, that convinced me to leave, even though we did not have any damage.

        Rycha, Joan, If anyone can see the emergence of tyranny, you people surely can. I believe the two of you saw what was unfolding and saw all the “sheeple” going the way of the masses who haven’t seen this destruction coming, who have never studied history. It is very scary when you think about it, how regimes like Hitler and Stalin got started in the very same manner. I believe our current occupant of the White House is the closest thing to a dictator that we’ve ever had in this country and it takes people from outside our country to first recognize it!! The newly elected Marko Rubio (God bless him!) is another great example of this, an exile from the regime of one of Obama’s buddies, Fidel Castro. God Bless the two of you for recognizing this; you two who have lived the experience of socialism and communism and how basic human dignity and freedoms are usurped under such a regime – - very credible voices indeed!

        • Wayne

          Kate8, thanks for straightening me out on this. Northern California, undoubtely, is a beautiful area. When I was in the military, back in 1957, I crossed this area, in February, we went past Lake Tahoe on our way to Travis Air Force Base, located near Oakland, Calif. heading to Japan. I have always remarked to people over the years how beautiful this area was. I remember a lot of snow, and the beautiful pine trees which were laden down with snow. I was traveling on a bus, and the highway patrol made the bus driver put on chains at the foot of some hill we were to be traveling on.

      • Wayne

        Rychka, I think the folks who have lived in other countries, and came to live here, seem to like the United States better than some folks who have lived here all their lives, Why do you suppose that is? I think it is because they are spoiled brats, and do not accept responsibility. They want the government to keep them and let some one else pay for their keep, or maybe they are just plain stupid.

    • Wayne

      Joan, thank you for your concern for our country. We really need everyones prayers, and concerns, that we can get. Our country is going through turmoil right before our very eyes, and even a lot of Americans can’t seem to see what has been happening to this nation, especially for the last two years. Our country is more divided now than I have ever seen. Our country seems to have lost its way for the last 20 or 30 years. We need to reestablish honesty in ourselves, and in our government leaders. Thanks to the Tea Party for trying to bring that back into existence. Thank you again for sharing your concerns.

  • Charlotte S. Dearien

    Please consider commenting on what happened in Iowa when the citizen-voters FIRED three (3) Supreme Court Judges. Have we, all along, been able to do this to a State Supreme Court? And what would there be to protect the U.S. Supreme Court from being dealt with thusly, especially when they shred the Constitution which they are supposed to uphold?

    Thank you for your very informative column. This is my first time to comment.

    • Cindy in Iowa

      Charlotte, now we are waiting & watching to see whether our ousted governor, Culver, will appoint replacements for these 3 judges, just giving us more of the same OR if our new governor-elect, Brandstadt, will be allowed to make that decision, which would be fait-accompli.

      • S.C.(Sioux City) Murf

        This is what we need to do every time they don’t listen to the people. Even Brandstadt asked them to back off and allow him to appoint the next judges. We’ll have to wait and see if chet will let terry or if he’ll undermine him

    • Wayne

      Charlotte, the U. S. Supreme Judges are not voted on. It is setup by law, the Constitution I believe, that they be given this job for the rest of their lives. This is a necessity in this case as when they vote on an issue they can vote on it the way they see fit, and not have to worry about any repercussions later on down the road. This keeps their decisions from being influenced by outside forces which is a good thing. In other words it keeps politics out of their decisions. I know in Ohio that the State Supreme Court Judges are voted on. The state supreme court judges are not quite as important as the U. S. Supreme Court Judges are. I would assume most states are like this.

      • Harold Olsen

        I believe that US Supreme Court justices can be impeached. However, I do not know under what conditions this can happen.

        • Wayne

          Harold, you are right on this. This is the only way I know of where thay can be forced out.

      • DaveH

        Maybe, Wayne, but remember it was politics that got them appointed in the first place.

        • TIME

          Dave how right you are, just like Barrys last appoontee who kept Barrys feet out of the fire, it was nothing more or less than a PAY BACK from Barry.

          That needs to be stopped, as well she should be removed from the court ASAP. And replaced with someone who has less baggage if thats even possible anylonger.

        • Wayne

          Oh yes, Dave, you are right. We, the conservatives, are a lot better off when we have a conservative president, and a conservative Congress when a U. S. Supreme Court Judge retires. Once they are in office, like Harold said, the only way to get them out would to impeach them. However, this is hard to do. I don’t ever remember any getting impeached in my 72 year of age. I just googled here: http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/14218 and learned that there has never been an impeachment of a U.S. Supreme Court Judge. Conservative president and Congress appoint Conservative judges and the Democrats picks the liberal judges. I don’t care who they are as long as they follow the Constitution, as written, but the liberals seem to want to change from the way the Constitution is written.

      • David Evans

        A Supreme Court Judge can be impeached by the Congress according to the Constitution and removed from office.

        • Kate8

          Speaking of Supreme Court – now, I’m talking SCOTUS. Do you all suppose Obama will have any problem getting more liberal judges in should someone retire? Since they are confirmed by the Senate, which retains a dem majority, will we try to stop him? Or cave, as usual.

          You know he’s going to try to further stack the Court while he’s in, and the effects of that are for a very long time. It seems that the Court has somehow usurped supreme authority over the ‘balance of powers’ by stealth, thanks to democrats.

          Scary.

          • Kinetic1

            Thanks to DEMOCRATS! Are you kidding! President Bush was the first President effectively appointed by a conservative Supreme Court. With his appointments pushing the court even further to the right, Corporations are now allowed to spend all the money they want to influence elections. Evidence can be used, even if the police violated the 4th amendment in getting it! You call this Liberal?

            According to a recent study
            “In its first five years, the Roberts court issued conservative decisions 58 percent of the time. And in the term ending a year ago, the rate rose to 65 percent, the highest number in any year since at least 1953.”

            “Four of the six most conservative justices of the 44 who have sat on the court since 1937 are serving now: Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Alito, Antonin Scalia and, most conservative of all, Clarence Thomas. (The other two were Chief Justices Burger and Rehnquist.) Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, the swing justice on the current court, is in the top 10.”

            That’s right, the swing justice is among the top 10 most conservative. Maybe, just maybe President Obama will have a chance to bring the court back to the middle ground and the American people will come before Corporate America.

          • Brad

            Kinetic1,

            So you would rather have the Supreme Court legislate from the bench, surpressing the US Constitution because Ohmama’s last two nominees would rather rule on how you feel not by rule of law. Sotomayor ruled the 2nd amendment does not allow citizens the right to own a weapon, then you have Kagan who changed a medical boards opinion to suit former Pres Bill Clintons abortion agenda.

            As for the 2000 election the Supreme Court stopped a whinny Al Gore, lets recount until we get our way, don’t you get it once the vote has been certified its over! The Supreme Court saw what was happening and put all in line in accordance to the constitution, now we need to hold our elected officials to their constitutional oath to support and defend the constitution of the united states of america against all enemy’s, foreign and demestic! If commensence legislation is held up or stopped by the rats in congress and if the legislation makes it to the presidents desk and is vetoed, the rats are going to be defying the will of the people and in two years Ohmama and more rats in congress will be gone.

        Unfortunately, since they are appointed by politicians, they come in politically biased and owing return of favors. For a lifetime! Some at least are dishonest and/or deceptive in the statements they make for confirmation.

        It was good when Presidents were honest and honorable; now when Presidents are politically motivated to satisfy pressure groups with Supreme Court decisions in their favor, the checks and balances are gone down the tubes.

    • Vigilant

      Charlotte,

      Welcome!

      As I know it, each state has a different method of putting judges in office. Here in NY we vote on them, in other states judges are appointed.

      The impeachment mechanism is in place for most judges (up to and including the Supreme Court of the US). But we, as voters, cannot touch the SCOTUS judges.

      SCOTUS has been regularly writing new laws since the Earl Warren Court, and gutless politicians in the Congress have abrogated their responsibilities by not calling out the court when it does so.

      How right you are we have made only one small step; now we really need to buckel down and work even harder. We have the nasty inflation issue thats going to pop up within the next few months. Its started but most will not really feel it until March 2011. Keep in mind the fed just printed off $650 Billion dollars, and they are also buying up Bonds by the truck load, so the dollar will drop again in worth.
      I also have been told that the fed is going to be printing off yet $500 billon more by January 2011, talk about inflation, hell this is bad very bad news. It will lead to more unemployment, and the dollar being worth even less.

      As well we still have many land mines sitting waiting on the Congress and Senate to reconvene next week. Within that mess is a lot of damage that may be even worse that Barry Care. Such as the UNION CARD CHECK bill. And lets not forget Joe Liebermans Internet take over and total control bill.
      By the way what the hell is wrong with the people from teh state of CONNnettictcut? They make the wackO’s from Calie look near normal.
      I expect this type of cray behavior out of MassAchewsits land of the fruit cakes, and even New Nork where Chuckie Schumer and the new Gov whos family should just be called the I hate anyone who has any money family rather than the Growmo’s. I am glad I left NY when I did.

        Inflation is going to have to happen. You cant roll the presses around the clock creating money, and not have inflation hit, as sooner or later that money is going to get spent somewhere. Then the crap hits the fan and makes it worse. And its going to get worse, before it gets better, but we did make a step in the right direction November 2nd, and in 2012 we can get America back to work.

      Said he did not “explain” enough to the people. He and his teleprompter could be counted on to be “on” almost every day. In the long run that was good — people got a great look at what a bad choice he had been. He was on TV so often that I wore out my mute button. I think he really believed he was the Messiah and right now his head must be spinning. Could not take any criticism — thin-skinned and arrogant. Americans have awakened to what this guy really stands for. His answers to simple questions went on forever and he never really answered the question. True — “You can’t fool all of the people all of the time.” Now we will really see the draining of the swamp. God Bless America.

      • Harold Olsen

        I heard someone on one of the cable channels say the other day that even Obama’s answers to questions in his press conferences and townhall meetings are on teleprompters. His people apparently figure out all the possible questions that might be asked and write out the answers for him to give and put them on the teleprompters. When a question is close to one of the answers they’ve come up with, they call it up and he reads it. Just how true that is, I don’t know. It wouldn’t surprise me though. He probably even needed a teleprompter when he proposed to his wife.

        • TIME

          Harold,
          The questions are pre given, and if one fails to follow the given questions they are never allowed to ask any questions again.
          Thats why the Telie Prompters have the answers pre scripted.

    • Wayne

      NObama is a narcissist person, (in love with himself and thinks he is better than most). I don’t see him changing much. It is not in this type of persons make up to change. I have, from the beginning, predicted that NObama will be a one term president. Look what he has done to this country in just two years. I believe he could have finished us off in 4 years had the same Congress members remained in place. I guess the billionaire George Soros has been visiting with NObama several times lately. This certainly does not look good as we know Soros is a Socialist.

      • Bill in Fla

        Soros is not only a Socialist, but the puppeteer controlling Nobama, the media and both liberal Republicans and Democrats. The man is scary and needs to be investigated.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      And he also said he doesnt think his miserable failed policies had anything to do with all their loses. What an arrogant pompous man. Are you kidding me? It is directly because of him and his failed policies that they got voted out of office. Pretty much the only ones that stayed, were the die hard all the way to the left types, like Harry Reid and Barbara Boxer, where the people that vote for them are so far left they dont even know these people are doing a disservice to them. But it was all Obama’s fault. But on the whole, we need to thank him for exposing the left as to who they really are. They have been trying to hid it for so long, but he has let the cat out of the bag. We see him making alliance with terrorists nations, and turning a blind eye to black panthers intimidating people at the polls, and all in all, him and his parties ideals are being shown, and America is waking up to how they really are.

      Redfray, if they don’t meet our demands there will be another election coming up in two more years. We’ll get rid of them, and try some one different. I have more faith in this newer group than you do. I think that John Boehner will be a good Speaker of the House and that he will do as he has said he will do, ie, listen to the American People. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see to know for sure.

        It’s nice to be optimistic and I envy your optimism. I, however do not trust ANY politicians.

Once a person decides to run office he becomes a politician and if he says he’s not one, he won’t get my vote.

    Connecticut’s race for Governor is a great example that illustrates the merit Armey’s comment, “If it’s close, they’ll steal it,” has. CT’s Republican candidate, Tom Foley, was clearly ahead in the numbers all night, on his way to certain victory. And then… the far left machine kicked in! It appears that CT’s three largest urban war zones, Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport were holding back their numbers. Three cities plagued with corruption that equals any third world country. With clear evidence of voter fraud being displayed all evening, the corrupt liberal machine turned in bogus numbers from these slime infested pits putting their man, Dan Malloy, out front. This move insures that CT will continue its tax and spend practice moving CT closer to California in the sewer pipe. Also, CT will reward the unions for sending out their thugs, oops, election volunteers to help steal CT Governorship from the great people in Connecticut(We are here). The country needs to demand a run off election in Connecticut’s race for Governor.

        You are right, and something needs to be done about that.

Its not right, and it needs repealed and changed real soon. Their pension should not be any greater than the ones us normal working folks get, and this huge couple hundred thousand dollar a year thing is just rediculous.

        • Lewis Munn

          Well, as an alternative, can we all vote ourselves similarly configured $260,000 a year retirement pensions, w/COL adjustments semi-annually, and all immediately retire?

  • FlaJim

    As Chip points out, the most important thing is that the Dems no longer control the purse strings. The GOP could present a budget that defunds Education, Energy, EPA, ALL the ‘czars,’ as well as ahost of other useless agencies and offices.

    There should be a change or shift in the current seniority system used to put certain members on certain committees. Most of the new GOP members are not babes in the woods who’ll meekly go along with the status quo. Many have years of experience in the real world and know things are supposed to be run as opposed to obscure traditions.

    The new GOP caucus will meet in Feb when the entire RNC leadership could be replaced along with the ranks of certain House and Senate leaders who’ve proved ineffective. It would be nice to see people like McConnell, McCain, Graham, Snowe, Collins, and other unreliable RINOs relegated to the back benches. We need dynamic conservative leadership.

    • http://donthaveone Beberoni

      I was happy to see John Kasich get elected Governor of Ohio because the infastructure of our once great state has been devasted. The only people making money in Ohio has been Auctioners as business owners stand by in tears watching their life’s work and assets being sold with a gavel at a value barely above a gift. I also wish President Obama on his World Tour will be held responsible for his Disdain for the wishes of the People whom are actually Citizens of our country. I believe he is serving without proof of citizenship and should be held responsible for breaking our laws.
      (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

      Homer….Even though I am from Nevada And not too proud of it at this moment, I was so rooting for JOHN KASICH, out of all our representatives John is one of those people that I trust the most, I believe he has integrity and in my book it’s one of the most important virtue of them all.
      I may be wrong but we have to put our faith somewhere and I think I will begin with john…..Time will tell.

      • Lewis Munn

        Seems to me the only people making money are the government press operators.

        Judging from the History of Germany, we can hope they make lots and lots so we can fire our wood stoves with it! Then we can tell the world our economy is so good we have money to burn!!

    • Wayne

      Homer, I agree with you about your new governor. I think he is a fine man and will work for the betterment of all the people in Ohio. I have watched him on televison quite a bit. I think I am fairly good at predicting a persons character. My prediction is, he will be fair and honest, and will make a great governor. Of course, he will need good legislators who is willing to work with him. Governors can have all the best ideas how to get things done, but all this will need approved by the state legislators. It is really more important to screen your members of Congress. and state legistors more closely that the governor, or president, when voting.

      Ohio, Michigan and Illinois have be ravaged and consumed by Democrats for so long, that they are in dire straights. Unemployment is rampant, crime is sky high, and its about time they changed pace. Here in Indiana, our Republican Governor has us back in the red after 8 democrat years of being in debt. And his critics cry about him selling the toll road. This thing runs along the far northern border of Indiana,where most of the state never see’s it. Im 52, and live way up north, 30 minutes from the Michigan border, and Ive never driven on it in my life. He got billions from I believe Austrailia for it, and it also alleviated us from paying the millions of dollars annually it took to maintain it. The guy is a business man, and thats what we need. Ohio, Illinois and Michigan need to take note of how this is done, by kicking out the democrats, which they did finally. And more demo’s got the boot in Indiana, which will help Gov. Daniels get more done this time around also. Oh, and back to the plus side of the money he has us in, well all the democrats in the state were trying to get their little fingers in it and spend, spend, spend it, instead of using it for when we might need it, which would have been real soon had not Obama been put into check.

      • Lucybobaloo

        I was watching Fox News recently and saw a short Interview with your Gov. Daniels as a possible Presidential possibility for 2012. I was so impressed with what they said about him and what he has been able to accomplish. He certainly has a lot to recommend him and I was so pleased to see you confirm what was said. I spoke with my nephew an OTR Truck Driver about the Toll Road 80/90 running across Indiana, Ohio, etc. headed East as he travels it weekly. He said from his perspective, the rates darn near doubled, but the road is maintained better. His main complaint was that there are so many ‘Smoky’s’ and that he got a ticket from being 2 miles over the limit!! I guess they have to pay for themselves somehow but the Truckers are surely being
        over regulated and one wonders how long they will be able to make a living on the road. Yes, Government is way too big!! Oh for more patriots like your Governor.

      • Lewis Munn

        You need to try driving the toll roads, with the tiny “european” signs, and many restrictions, and unbelievably dense traffic. The europrans have them signed for cars that can only make 50 mph!

        I am not at all happy with having them sold and europeanized. Makes driving miserable.

          Lewis Munn,
          you obviously have never driven the autobahn!!! The curves would make any professional race driver jealous and when I was there in 68-70 i had cars pass me like I was standing still and I was doing 80!! At that time they didn’t have a speed limit and I saw very few accidents!! It was one of the best highways I’ve ever seen!!

If he were truly a Citizen of the USA, they why spend millions of dollars keeping not only his place of birth secret, but his education, his finances, everything an American is supposed to produce to hold office he has hired lawyers and paid millions to keep his past secret. Oh gee, I wonder how he got away with that.

Imagine that his constituents would vote for him after he had done that? Does’t this make you wonder about their mentality? Could it be all the handouts he gives back to his community that influenced their decisions. I say, make a law that forbids any Congress members from giving millions of our dollars back to their community to buy votes. This is the only reason this man could have been voted back in office. I can’t believe they could be that stupid to vote this man back in again. I hope his voters would come and read some of our post. They would probably wouild be ashamed to say where they are from!!!!

    The next thing to do is get rid of any and all members of the Senate and the House that are Pro Gun Control Nuts. and vote in a Federal law that imposes a minimum $2500.00 Fee for all the people who refuse to own a fire arm and also require any one who refuses to own a fire arm to register with the federal government with their name date of birth and SS# as a non gun owner so the non gun ownership fee can be collected.This fee then shall be given to local Law Enforcement Departments for the purpose of providing protection for those who refuse to own a fire arm for personal protection.THIS IS A TYPE OF GUN CONTROL THAT MAY BE ACCEPTABLE TO GUN OWERS!!!!

    • Shibamom

      So…why would you shove gun ownership down people’s throats?? If you choose to own a gun, then go for it. All I would expect from you is to be responsible, lock it up, and don’t leave it around for an innocent child to get ahold of it. For most of my life, I’ve never felt the need to own a gun although within the last two years of this current administration, I’ve considered getting one for protection because of all the hate and division that has been tossed around our country for the last two years. I may still get one…but don’t impose it on me. Didn’t we all just blog our dislike about having the Gov’t impose things on the citizen’s?

      • Dagney

        I believe Robert Bryan was being satirical and making a point. Obviously, you seem to lean left and so, would not get the irony.

      • rosina

        I have never owned a gun in my life.
        Would be even scared to try to shoot.
        I recall years ago, in my early youth, being invited by a friend on the outskirts of London, Ontario,(Canada) then a very small town. She had a huge rifle at least, it seemed that way to me, and i was unable even to hit a huge tree trunk, let alone something small.
        I believe , like you, NO ONE should be forced to do anything against their will or conscience.

      • Robert Bryan

        Mam I own numerous guns and my children have been taught that they are not toys and are to be left alone.Furthermore I am not advocating shoving gun ownership on any one.HOW EVER those of us who choose to own guns have been paying through the nose for years for that privilege it is about time the anti gunners STARTED TO PAY!! THE TAX PAYER PAYS THE SALARY OF THE POLICE OFFICER WHO PROTECTS THEM WHY SHOULDN’T THE NON GUN OWNER PAY FOR HIS OWN PROTECTION!! I OWN GUNS AND CAN PROTECT MYSELF,FAMILY AND PROPERTY

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          But you are wrong in saying people should be forced to own a gun. That is a form of communism, where the government forces you to do something. Its socialism. The government should be in the business of making sure we have a ready army for self defense, and a police force to keep order, and a fire department for safety. A commission to take care of roads and bridges. And all this money would be readily available to have the finest of all these, if they would quit giving it away to terrorists nations and third world countries who hate us and march on our capital, and if they would quit giving handouts to lazy bums who refuse to get a job. Welfare and food stamps were not meant to be a way of life, but folks have figured out how to prostitute the system, and the democrats keep expanding this to keep getting their votes, and to keep them down, and they are too dumb to see that, and keep voting for them. But sir, you cannot force people to have a gun, nor can you force them not to have a gun. Either one is wrong. You cannot force people to eat meat, and you cannot force them not to eat meat. Or to be married, or not to be married, or to go to church, or not go to church. It isnt the governments business to intrude on our lives like that. That is the problem we have right now, in that government has gotten so big, they continually seek to grow and control more and more aspects of our lives. When they start being allowed to pick and choose which banks live and fail, and which business’s like GM and Chrysler that they want to give billions of dollars do, then they have gotten to big and powerful. When you start interferring with the free market system like this, bad, bad things happen. No sir, we need less goverment regulation and interference, not more of it. So you are wrong, very wrong with this idea.

          • vicki

            There is already a town out west that requires you to own a gun if you are to live there! One of the loest crime rates in the nation!!!

        • AnhydrousBob

          I know your heart is in the right place, but your mind is not. It is no different for the government to force someone to buy health insurance or a gun. We should be wanting less government, not more government that just suits our own tastes. It Liberty is good, then lets have more of it, and less coercion by the government.

          By the way, I’m all for less taxes and pay for fewer police. That is an alternative to your argument, one that would give government less power.:)

      • Wayne

        I do not believe in gun control. I understand what is being said here. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t ever want to see a law passed that would force a person to own a firearm. We have too many laws on the books now. I do believe in complete freedom of owning a firearm. Without firearms we would still be living under British Control. There culd never have been a Revolutionary War. Without firearms we could never have conquored the West. Firearms keep us free from those who would like to conquor us. This is a true story: Out in one of the western states a few years back a 13 year old girl was alone in her house. Two illegal Mexicans broke into the house after the father had left for work. The girl was in an upstairs bed room when the two men entered the home. This girl and her Dad were trap and skeet shooters. When the girl heard the men coming up the stairway she got her trusty shotgun and as the two men approached the top of the steps she killed both of them. Thank God this girl had a gun and was experienced in using it, or she may have ended up dead. One of the two dead men had a weapon on him that he had stolen from another house burglary a few minutes earlier. To make this short, it not only pays to have a gun in the home, but you had better learn how to use it, and be able to use it if you have to. I know of several incidents like these that has occurred over the years. Yes! there are tragedies that happen from time to time by sheer negligence of the gun owner. I feel that there has been more lives saved than those accidently killed by firearms.

      • Lewis Munn

        I agree, but we need to allow those who want or need weapons to have them. Taking a gun safety course is not an unreasonable requirement if it is affordable to all. And when guns are allowed, the government needs to stop selling the used military brass to enemy countries and let it be reloaded here for civilian use.

        And stop taxing or restricting civilian calibre cartridges manufacturing.

    • Harold Olsen

      I’m pro-Second Amendment but I do not own any guns nor do I like guns. Why would you propose such a fascist idea?

      • Robert Bryan

        WELL HAROLD: Why should gun owners have to pay exorbitant taxes to buy guns and ammo and be subject to all the regulations that are part of gun ownership when the ANTI GUN NUTS dont have the taxes and regulations? Like I said if a person chooses not to own a FIREARM to protect HIS OR HER FAMILY,PROPERTY,AND SELF and choose to rely on POLICE OFFICERS FOR THAT PROTECTION THEN THEY SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO PAY A YEARLY FEE FOR NON FIREARM OWNERSHIP PRIVELEDGE AND AS SAID THAT FEE SHOULD GO TO PAY THE SALARYS OF THE POLICE OFFICERS THAT PROVIDE THE PROTECTION. THIS IS EQUALITY NOT FACISIM!!!!! HITLER PROMOTED GUN CONTROL CHECK HISTORY SEE WHERE THAT LED!!!!!!!.

        • http://donthaveone Beberoni

          Because you have made the conscience decision to buy the gun, so you pay the fee’s and taxes. Im pro gun, but dont ask me to pay for you owning one. Thats insane. My gosh man, you know how much I resent the government making me pay joe crack head unemployement, and food stamps and welfare, because he doesnt want to work for it? Im sick of it. Now you propose that I have to pay, so that you dont have to pay so much for something you want? Thats insane man. You dont like the fee’s and taxes on buying a gun, hey man, DONT BUY ONE THEN. Me, if I want to buy one, Ill pay the fees and the taxes, as I understand that is part of the deal. Come on man. Thats like saying I go to the grocery and they shouldnt be allowed to charge me for my groceries because I dont want to pay for what Im getting. Thats nuts man. Ive got my own bills to pay, so dont ask me to pay your gun fee’s. Geez.

        I read somewhere that in Switzerland every citizen is issued a firearm by the government, and required to have training in the use of firearms.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Switzerland

        With all the home invasions in our area in the past few months, I am thinking of obtaining a gun.

        And now due to budget constraints, and reduction in force, the police are not responding to some 911 calls that are not life threatening. Burglary being one of them. We are instructed to go to the Police Station and file a report, they do not come to your home and investigate. To few policemen to continue that service.

        • Lewis Munn

          You forgot, the crime rate is Switzerland is very low also. Criminals do not prosper long where everybody is armed and knows how to use the arms on criminals!

      • Wayne

        I carried a weapon for around 30 years in my work, so I had to learn to love them. I respect firearms, and I am not afraid of them when I am around folks who know how to handle them. I will always have firearms in my home for my personal protection. I know of too many cases where folks that did not have firearms in their homes have been killed. I am also aware of many cases where the home owner had firearms in their homes who have had to use their firearms to protect their family members from people who had broken in their homes that were armed. Most likely some of the folks on this forum would have been killed if this same thing would have happened to them. My mott is: learn how to use firearms, then go out and buy yourself a good defensive weapon.

    Your “Restraining Order” is very approble. I just hope the Repubilcan House also has someone who will bring up the REAL problem with the U.S. economy and job loss. We have transferred the wealth of American and future to the Chinese and other countries. So we do need a restraining order placed on doing business with unethical countries who are simply cheating America.

    The liberal congress has NOT done its duty in protecting America from its enemies, just the opposite. NAFTA and the sweet heart trade deal with China have robbed American Children of their future. Working Americans with American jobs are what create American properity.

    A few years ago in hearings about the sale of American technology to China a Chinesse man said “We were not supprised that you could buy American politicians (we buy politicians everywhere), we were surprised at how cheap they were.”

    Our politicians have cheaply sold the proserity of America. Hopefully the new Congress will put a “Restraining Order” on that also!

    • UncleOtto

      Well said Jim. The election went my way for the most part here in Florida. However I noticed that all the candidates said they were going to get the jobs back. No one mentioned rescinding the free trade agreements, the major cause of the unemployment problem and everything that followed, mortgage, Homelessness, etc. Even the GUVNAS (polish) could have said they would encourage the state representatives to shoot for rescinding. I suspect that not a few Republicans elected are neo-cons, the color of Bush, and believe that free trade will cause the field of dreams instead of the nightmare that is upon us. I hope I’m wrong but…… Even Ron Paul unfortunately believes in it. The neo-cons also support these wars on helpless countries no danger to us.

      Jim, I could not have said it any better. You are so right. The current president, and Congress, has not done anything at all over the last two years to bring jobs back to this country. They have been to damm busy passing NObama’s “health care bill”, and working on NObama’s “Cap & Trade” bill, or as some call it the “Cap & Tax” bill. NObama would not make a pimple on a good president’s butt. He is inexperienced, a Narcissistic, and good at spreading the wealth, and the BS around, but he is not good for anything else. Why, oh why would any sensible American vote for any man like this. Even after two year, I am still trying to figure it out, but I simply cannot. I feel that the ones who voted for him was not informed very well, or they just wanted a change, any change. I blame most of this on the liberal press instead of the people. People, for Goodness Sake, do you home work in the future, don’t believe the libeal press. Please don’t vote in the future until you have time to research your candidates.

    Obama was born and raised to hate America by his parents, grandparents and Kenyan relatives.

    Then he became disciple of Ayres and Wright who taught him to hate America even more.
    Is it entirely possible that the problem with Obama’s policies is not that they ARE FAILING, but rather, that they were specifically and purposefully DESIGNED TO FAIL and break the back of the United States?

    Is it entirely possible that every move Barack Hussein Obama remind people of the broken promises together with the threats and bribes he used to get Obamacare passed.

        I have been hearing that George Soros has been visiting with NObama a few times lately. I wonder what they are talking about. Do you supposed it could be who will lead us when the economy collapses. Who will be in charge, George or NObama? I even hate to think about it. At this moment, I am very pessimistic when it comes to our economy. I think we are in for some hard times for several years, or more. I don’t think we have reached the bottom yet. With NObama, along with the Feds “Quanitative Easing” coming on, this will drive up prices on everything we buy. This will cause the dollar to devalue, and be worth less than what it is now which means what you buy not for one dollar can cost as much as $1.10, or more after the Quantitative Easing take place. NObama said we could keep our own insurance and it would not cause prices to rise on insurance. Guess what? I just heard on the news this AM that AARP will be raising their prices in 2011 to around 13%. AARP, the idiots who was behind NObama on this, are now going to raise their price. What a crock of s—!!!! I would not blame everyone if they would drop their membership in this organization. I thought they were looking our after who they are supposed to represent, the older folks over fifty.

      I just wish people would stop calling him Obama because that is not is name it is Barry Soetoro.

      He took his father’s name that he hated so badly off of his tumbstone because he thought it was so catchy.

      The best part I love is he spoke to father when he visited where is burried and he told what to do when he becomes President. That gave me willies because he seems to talk to dead people better than live people.

      He got that name Barry Soetoro because his mother married a man from Indonesia and when they moved there Barry had to become a citizen because he wouldn’t be able to go to school there because they were at war and that was the law nobody seems to know about that or people don’t remember.

      I don’t know whether anybody saw the two (2) interviews with his grandma in Africa that she was in the operating when he was born and she was so proud to see where he is today.

We need to keep reminding America to wake up and not allow our government to treat us like we haven’t a mind or will of our own. Keep our elected officials in check and demand that they think of the people before their own pockets as our past officials have been doing.

    We need to keep taking America back!! Stop the infultrating of illegals, an start thinking of WE THE PEOPLE!! Stop worrying about being politically correct, and start thinking of being CONSTITUTIONALLY correct! If we don’t do these few simple things, what’s the use of even trying to “change”? Soon we will have way too many potential democrats to vote against all we have done and place us right back where we were before Nov 2nd. We need to get rid of ALL threats inside America. This past election was just the start in my opinion.

    There is a lot of work ahead of us ALL if we are to get America back on it’s feet again.

    I’ve just failed to get elected as a libertarian in my town which has elected me twice to be one of the three selectmen who make all the decisions for the people.We who are paying attention are above the crowd.Unfortunately the vast majority think it’s a big deal when they take the democratic yoke off and slip into the republican yoke. The concept of dropping the yoke to the ground and walking around free is beyond their ability.This is why the Paul family had to try to work from inside the republican party.The public which has been non educated in the government schools are not prepared for logical thought.

    Now maybe we can get all the Chicago thugs out of government. A step in the right direction — Obama’s former seat went to a Republican.Maybe the winds coming off the Great Lakes will clear the air.

      Unfortunately for Chicago, Rhambo “Dead Fish” headed back to Chicago to become their mayor, and the liberals there are stupid enough to vote for him. Lets watch and see if they indeed are that stupid there.

    I am so thankful the ele4ction turned out so well. I prayed that enough republoicans would get voted in so the democrats couldn’t coulodn’t get everything they wanted. I am so happy that old lady Pelosi got vted out. I couldn’t stand to look at her face4.

    • (WIA) Wild Indian in Action

      I’m sorry to inform you that Pelosi was not voted out, she is still the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and will be so until the new Majority caucus select the new Speaker, meanwhile she has announced that she will seek the minority position and this will depend on the vote of the House Democrat minority and until January we will have to deal with this Evil during the Lame Duck session.

  • BigBadJohn

    I have always contended that our government simply works better when power is split between the branches of government.
    When one party has a lock on all three branches they create a mess. The most obvious cases were LBJ, GWB and now Obama. Let’s hope this election brings some sanity to government, DO NOT let any one party get a lock on government again!

  • home boy

    i can’t believe you people. you are still relying on man to solve all problems. give me a break. i thought there were some still left in this country that relized no matter who is in office the system does not work. but now with the so called big win things will change. wrong. obama will veto anything that the repubs want and then nothing gets done andeverything he has put into place will continue on it’s course. this country is going down for the count while the rest of the world is taking care of their economys. obama wants this country to fail so he and soros can rebuild it their way. there are more morans in this country than i thought.

        The european ones like Germany for example that have passed laws making it illegal for their central bank to finance government debt. Wow what a concept!

      Or Obama can follow Bush’s lead and sign bills but put in signing statements that he will not follow the parts that he does not like.

      Better to veto the whole bill and force parties to work together to come up with something everyone can agree on. That is how the people who wrote the constitution meant for it to work!

      Hey Hommie, I’ve known that for years, calling us all morons on this website is painting us all with a broad brush. unless you’re talking about liberals. “If voting counted, it would be illegal”, I think a few good people got in.

  • Jack B.

    As a strong conservative, I would suggest that we are not by any means done cleaning house on either side of the fence. To insure that we return to our constitution, we must use the powers of the ballot, the powers of impeachment, recall and petition to remove any elected person who seeks moneys from any type of special interest groups. They work for US. I will be watching these people and naming names when they begin to stray from our best interest. We must remain forever sovereign and forever free.

    • TM-ME

      I agree Jack, and I think now that the GOP has changed, we should start thinking of impeachment and treason charges for all those involved.

      • Tony

        Take a look at Suzanna Martinez, she won the governorship in New Mexico. She was the state prosecuter in Las Cruces and has vowed to put corrupt politicians in jail and in New Mexico there are plenty. One of the most liberal states has elected a true conservative to govenor!

      Jack B. , Right on spot. Begin now on identifying all the rinos / dinos and vote them out in 2012 along with the POTUS and send them packing.

  • Todd

    Chip, I love your articles and share them with as many Liberals as I can.

    Am am very please with this election, but if we don’t stay on them we will not change their destructive ways. In that vain, I wanted to share what is below, I am sending this to get to as many people as possible…
    ——————————————————————–
    With the recent elections we have a chance to take back America! For this to happen our voices need to be louder than ever. Below is what I am sending to my elected officials. Please take this information and send it to all your elected officials as well. If they don’t here from us, and often, history shows they will fail to legislate for what the majority of the people want. They will legislate in favor of special interests, foreign governments and cronyism. They need to be held accountable!

    I am sure you have heard many times that many elected officials think that we are so dumb, we can’t think for ourselves, and we don’t know what is going on so they have to think for us. This is just another very valid reason to send this to your elected officials. Show them you are not dumb, and you do know what is going on…you do know what they are doing to you.

    If you think you don’t need to send this to your elected officials because I may Have, don’t, send it anyway. To reiterate, the more they here from us the better our chance of taking back America.

    Please share this with as many people as you can.

    Thank you for taking these steps to take back America. This will insure the great America we have enjoyed will be that way for future generations to come.

    The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it always to be kept alive.
    Thomas Jefferson
    3rd president of US (1743 – 1826)

    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.
    Albert Einstein

    3. Stop letting America turn into a socialist country

    33. Stop the Federal Reserve from stimulating the economy into oblivion
    34. Eliminate or at least audit the Federal Reserve
    35. Require the President to prove his Constitutionally required eligibility to hold office (can’t believe he was even allow to run for office without doing this)

    Respectfully,

  • Chris

    We are supposed to be conservatives and Constitutionalists so let’s start repealing some of the previous passed legislation that violates the Constitution. Perhaps we can start with the Patriot Act and get back the 4th Amendment. After that, National Health Care and maybe we can reduce the size of the top-heavy Armed Forces. The civilian ranks of Federal, State, and local governments are all bloated. Privatize everything that can possibly be privatised and let business innovate and make a profit and hire personnel. There are many government agencies and even departments that could be eliminated. Let’s see what the new breed can do.

No I believe Big Pharm, Oil, Wall st., Military/Security complex, Agri…are still driving the bus. No one voted them in,but more importantly, no one voted them OUT!

  • Tom SC

    I was mostly satisfied the way this election turned out,however I was dissapointed in the people of Naveda who failed to send Reid back under his rock. I listened to Obumer yesterday and he has not learned a thing. He is still as arrogant as ever and intent on continuing pushing his agenda down our throats. I guess it’s true, the only way to kill a snake is to cut of it’s head and wait 24hrs.

  • Carlucci

    I wouldn’t get too excited or happy right now, because actions always speak louder than words. We have to be very vigilant and watch them all like hawks and let them know that we are watching. I didn’t vote for any encumbent except for the attorney general of my state because he is actually doing a good job. He was either the first or one of the first to file suit against the feds when Obummercare was passed. When you vote for most encumbents, you are saying that you like and approve of what they are doing in D.C., which is usually rubber stamping more destructive legislation. Whether they are republicans or democrats, all they seem interested in is growing bigger and even more intrusive government to justify their jobs. Bush was/is a “republican” and look at all the freedom stealing b.s. he came up with, not to mention that both Bushes are warmongers. The only decent person who sees the big picture and tells it like it is in D.C. is Dr. Ron Paul. Hopefully his son is just as discerning as he is. We need more people like that who can shake things up and scale things down. The best thing first and foremost that can be done is ridding America of that malignancy known as the Federal Reserve. If you haven’t seen that fantastic documentary “The Story of Oz” on YouTube, it is a must.

  • Polski

    We are dumb. Dubya Bush cheated in his elections. All corporate executives are crooks. All politicians are crooks. Privatize? So everything that hasn’t been exploited can be exploited. Both parties are horrible/terrible. How that can be fixed is beyond anyone’s scope.

    • Dr. Mabuse

      Polski, you are head and shoulders above the rest and directly on point. I would temper your statement by saying “most” politicians, corp. execs., etc. The scope of most of the “right wing loons” (thanks for the idea, Conservative at Birth) isn’t inclusive or expansive enough to provide a comprehensive answer to this nagging problem. As far as the “left wing loons” go, their just as myopic as their conservative cohorts.
      The bottom line: Game Over.
      The America we knew is gone…
      The America we envision won’t come into being.
      As long as we stay in an adversarial stance with each other as opposed to embracing a pragmatic approach at cooperation, we’ll be Balkanised, maginalized, then finally euthanized.

      • Conservative at Birth

        Are you implying I am a right wing loon?

        • Dr. Mabuse

          Easy Turbo, I don’t have to imply… how droll…
          I thought your use of the phrase “left wing loon” was like the turn of the trick, so to speak. I merely use the opposite side of it, (in context with “left wing loon”) and acknowledged your phrase and idea.
          But to continue with a tongue in cheek perspective….
          If the shoe fits…

  • annnort

    I think we could have taken the Senate if one man had been silenced. He contributed alot of money, but he talked too much! This man is Karl Rove. He did nothing to help George Bush and now he is keeping conservatives from being elected. O’Donnell may not have been the greatest candidate, but she is better than a marxist or a progressive. Karl Rove sneers at Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin did more than anyone to get people excited and get the republicans elected. She deserves all the credit we can give her. Money means alot, but stumping is very necessary and Sarah provided the stumping!!

    • Harold Olsen

      Why should Karl Rove help conservatives get elected when he is not a conservative himself. Bush wasn’t a conservative. As Charles Krauthammer said on FOX’s “Special Report With Brit Hume” in November 2008 “George W. Bush is the most socialist president in the history of this country.” Every time Rove appeared on a FOX news show he badmouthed true conservatives. I got to the point where I changed the channel every time he came on. The Republican party gave little support to true conservatives also. That’s why I can not understand why people continue to call the Republican party a conservative party. They aren’t!! Now I’m just waiting to see if any of the new Republicans elected are true conservatives or not. If not, then we are no better of than we were before the election. Let’s see if they also bring some courage with them or are just as cowardly as the rest of them.

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Liberty

        Harold,

        I, and many others have relayed to me the same message you made a point of.

        I also agree with you.

    • Wayne

      I agree, annnort.

    • vicki

      As much fun as it might be to silence K.Rove just remember if we were to succeed, we could be next.

  • http://none Gene Heck

    The results of this election were satisfying in general, but we still have a long way to go. As someone else pointed out: “We have to hold our representatives feet to the FIRE” if we expect any long lasting significant changes to take place. Don’t forget that “evil prospers when good people do nothing”.
    We now are in a position to begin to restore the values originally established by our founding fathers. Our Nation was established on Biblical priciples, and until we return to those priciples, nothing will really “lastingly” change for the good.
    1. Sanctity of life is the most important thing to protect.
    2. The one man- one woman marriage must be protected. (How can we procreate and maintain our nation any other way?)
    3. Our “Imigration laws” must be enforced.
    4. Swift and sure punishment must be administered to those who commit or aid in the commission of crimes against our nation and crimes against the lawful citizens of our land.
    5. The “Federal Reserve System must be audited, which will expose the corruption that is being inflicted upon our people by them.
    6. Social Security abuses must be exposed and the guilty parties made to restore the funds stolen through these abuses.
    7. The oil reserves which are being locked up in our land must be unlocked so that we can use these reserves for our people. We have more oil within the continental United States of America than all the Eastern Arabic nations put together. This does not even include off shore drilling, nor the oil located in Alaska. Force our representatives to unlock those reserves and stop spending our money on foreign oil. Put our own oil refineries back into full production.
    8. We must stop taking over private businesses (Auto manufacturers, etc., etc.)
    9. We must stop bailing out any businesses, (including banks) they must stand or fail on their own. This is what made this nation great and powerful and it cannot regain its’ power and greatness and the respect of other nations until we do so.
    10. Years ago, a French philosopher, studied the United States to see why it was so prosperous. He came to the conclusion, that America was Great because America was “Good”, and when She stops being “Good”, She will stop being Great. We are no longer the Great Nation that we were, could the philosopher have been right? Think about it. If we don’t change for the good, no amount of talk will do any lasting good.
    This is my first time to comment, but I hope it is not my last. We must speak out and act or things will go on “Business as usual.”
    May GOD have mercy on us, we surely don’t deserve it, the way we have been (misbehaving).

    • Teresa

      very good post

    • Wayne

      Very nice post, thanks.

    • JRC

      Nice post…all but your rant about oil reserves….tell me, why would you take away the future of our children in your selfish quest for cheap gas? I agree with people that lock up those resources. Think about it, the price of oil will go up independent of the fact that we would open up our reserves. The price is dependent on the demand and although it seem high, it is still comparable low as to where it will be once the oil in other countries runs out….why not take advantage of the comparatively cheap oil and use up they’re reserves? Leave what we have in american soil until the time when it will be nearly impossible to get outside oil anymore. Remember its not just used in the tank of our cars, trucks, and SUVs but without it we would starve and could not produce 90% of the medications and other life saving instruments.Nope, if we care about the future of this country and the future of our kids, we need to keep the oil within the US where it is..in the ground to be preserved for the future.

      • AnhydrousBob

        Your idea is flawed in a couple of ways – there is no guarantee we will survive long enough to use “our” oil if we have to pay for “their” oil.

        The oil should not be under any government control, nope – none. It should be up to the owners of that property to use it as they deem.

    • Lewis Munn

      I agree with the quote. I believe it was “America is Great because she is Good, and when America ceases to be Good, she will cease to be great.”

      Watch it happen in real life if you do not want America to be great anymore. Take action if you do!

      Haven’t heard that quote in a long time. Thanks.

    I just hope they come through on government spending and illegal immigration which is draining our system. Legal immigration is fine, as long as they come to our country and melt into society as Americans but this crap of flying the Mexican flag and dishonoring our country and all the drugs has to stop. If they would start putting a big fine on illegals when they are stopped for crimes, and put a big tax on things that are imported from China, we could pay off our deficiet in no time. But as long as our system is making so much money on drugs, they will keep the boders open. Johnny Isacson won easily in Georgia because he really cares about the United States and he is a good man. He needs to run for president. First off, we need to get the illegals out of our jobs and put Americans back to work. I work with some illegals and they all have 2 jobs and have no problem finding another if they get fired.

  • Brad

    Right now what all Americans need to do is watch out for this lame duck congress because when they return there might be a move to push all legislation through that favors Obama agenda. This is what we the people have to do, keep up the pressure, we may have won the battle on the 2nd but can still loose the war before the 112th congress convenes in January.

    Ohmama after his televised national speech called his moveon.org allies and iterated he will fight the Republicans measures causing gridlock for the next two year’s. John Boehner has reached out to Ohmama and the left to work with them on commonsence legislation that works for the people and I will hold Mr. Boehner to his word to include writing my congressman and senator’s which may not work since all are “Rats”, thank Maryland for that one.

  • Jackie

    Thank God that there is some turn around in equality or taking away the whoe school yard from the extreme liberals. This country as been picked on for the past two centuries, probably more. By the self serving greedy people we have voted into office. We put these people in because we honestly think they will help us and make the country the strongest country that anyone has to contend with. Instead we have been banboozled by puppits that are dangling from the strings of George Saros and his kind, to overrun us and put us in that third world atmosphere. I and most of my fellow Americans would rather have a Civil War and remove them all before giving up to becoming a group of slaves to their powerful positions of Lords of the MONEY. That is what is running this country. MONEY…not how does America continue to run a free establishment, with knowledgible people who can invent and make appropriate decisions to continue a prosperous economy, have the intellegence to keep the terrorists and all illegal aliens out of this country until they PROVE they want to be AMERICANS. We are being overrun by Hollywood stars who don’t know how to run their own lives, but are the first to speak about what is GOOD for us. They have too much money and end up killing themselves with alcohol or drugs, because there is not and challenge for them in their insecure lives. They have forgotten God. They are satanistic, anything goes, because they have money to buy out the problems. Well they better look again at Michael Jackson. And the rest of the group who cannot be normal because of excess money. They have so many ideas how to run us..Well tax them so the poor of the USA can survive, instead of being these big mouths about helping other countries. The new people in office better hang on to the hats and pockets because the buyoffs will begin to get laws pushed through…that benefit Washington and not the country. The Time has come: Congress and the rest of OUR servants get the same benefits as the Citizens, they pay into the same accounts, i.e., Soc Sec, insurances such as MEDICARE or programs THEY pay into not the TAX dollar. The President MUST prove his citizenship…and not some store bought document. The corruption and Socialistic ways must come to an end. Before our Great USA comes to an end. Perhaps the President would like a Civil War…so he can show us all how Powerful he is. I think he will be surprised what the American Citizen is really like. May God bless all who believe in the Constitution of the USA and abide by the rules…Because that is what made us the strong nation we are. Anyone who does not believe in this …CAN LEAVE and immediately is not soon enough.

    The main thing the Republican congress needs to focus on is proving Obama ineligible. Then every thing he has signed into law and supreme court justices will be gone.

    I considered winning the house was the most inportant. Now Barney Frank who was one of the biggest contributors to the recession. He and his fellow buffoons are directly responsible for the housing bubble that started all of this. Maybe the could form a new commitee for Barney.How about the commitee for taking out the trash and cleaning the men’s room. I’m sure he will be delighted to spend as much time in the men’s room as he can.
    Don’t worry about Reid he probably will only be the majority leader in the Senate for another two years. Come 2012 more Democratic senators will be up for election than Republicans. If we elect more conservative Republicans can win< Reid will lose his job.

      Yeah, McCain can stop pretending to be a conservative now that he has gotten re-elected. He can go back to voting with the left since he has nothing to lose. He said this will be the last time he runs for office. Not only is he a liberal pretending to be a conservative, I’m convinced that he is a closet Democrat. It would not surprise me if he announced he was switching parties and declare himself to be a Democrat.

    Don’t worry about Reid he probably will only be the majority leader in the Senate for another two years. Come 2012 more Democratic senators will be up for election than Republicans. If we elect more conservative Republicans can win< Reid will lose his job.

    I was amazed at the audacity of the mainstream press crying out: Now we must compromise!! In the last two years did we hear that even once? NO!! With the press on their side twisting everything the Republicns say and do in the next two years, it will be an uphill battle…but…prayer changes things. God is not democrate or republican….He is for truth and morality. Righteousness exalts a nation, sin is a reproach to any people!!

    My FAVORITE victory is Travis Childers’ defeat in the Mississippi 1st. He professed to be a “fiscally conservative Democrat”, which is an oxymoron. He was either a liar, or a hypocrite, and neither is a good thing. If you don’t believe in 90% of your party’s platform, WHY would you caucus with them? Why would you remain a Democrat? It was to get the African American vote, at the expense of his values, and THAT stinks.

    My favorite election would have to be the election of constitutional conservative Bobby Schilling as my congressman in Illinois’ 7th congressional district. (The most gerrymandered district in the nation to keep it democrat.) He beat out socialist Phil Hare who is one of the 83 members of the Democrat Socialist Committee. Bobby waged an 18 month campaign, starting on his own from his pizza parlor and ending up with 3,000 plus volunteers. When he started it was solid democrat and in September was leans Republican. Bobby has vowed not to serve more than 4 terms, reject all pay increases, not use the gold-plated congressional health care, not take the gold-plated congressional pension and vote against any and all tax increases. Go Bobby!

    Well, It’s good to see everyone in a upbeat mood of sorts this morning.

    Seems Palin is 5 for 10, that keeps her in the game and SaraPac with the door open and the lights still on. That good news, we’ve not see the last of Sara.

    Bockman is all smiles and talks of forming a voting block coalition. That should be amusing.

    I agree with some of the earlier poster, that the poll vote needs to be constantly policed to insure the integrity and validity of the vote. This policing needs to be proactive and not just chasing smoke. However, I don’t agree with strong requirement to cast a ballot at this point in time.

    We shall see what difference this makes in the coming months. It’s good to see the other side of the house start thinking about the issue.

    But if Geo. has his way, the issue hasn’t changed a bit, ~ stall Capital Hill business and make Obama a one term President and repeal 4 years worth of work.

    If this is the way it to be, if this is the issues of the day, America is in for much harder times to come.

    As for myself, I’m not going to race out and buy something or commit myself and few others will as well.

    And that exactly what “needs” to happen for the private sector to pull out of this slump.

    We shall see what leadership this bunch offers us, Party gains or prosperity for more the just a few Americans for as we see the top 2% has done very well for themselves over the years and are not in a pinch today.

    Let the disinformation games continue.

    • http://www.allluxuryhomes.us Bill Ascherfeld

      Bob, you got it right for the most part.

      But we can’t afford to let Obama be even a 1 term President!

      He, of course is a puppet. Who is the puppet master? I’m not sure. Some point to George Soros, others say it is the Bilderburgers with their one world view. Some would point to the Islamics, pointing out Barry Soetoro’s Muslim roots.

      Whoever it is, a precedent will be set if Obama makes it to the 2012 election, even if he gets defeated.

      The stage will be set for anybody in the world to become POTUS.

      The very Constitution that makes this country The Leader of The Free World will have been left violated.

      Barry Soetoro (AKA Obama) is so afraid he has spent loads of $$$ protecting the secrecy of, not only his birth certificate, but his school and college and university records too for fear that someone will find out his “dirty little secrets”.

      He is so afraid he has had anybody that asks, “Where’s the certificate?” labeled a “Birther”, and ridiculed as a conspiracy theorist. That has gone a long way to stop the attack.

      But we don’t need Soetoro’s actual birth certificate anymore. Someone finally searched through The Constitution, and there it was all the time. Natural born citizen requires more than just being an “Anchor Baby”, I.E. dropped out of the womb onto American Soil. Even the XIVth amendment doesn’t allow that, when read correctly. The Constitution carefully distinguishes between “Native Born”, In case Mr. Soetoro was born in Hawaii, and Natural Born, and calls for the POTUS to have been Natural Born. Both parents must have been citizens at time of birth! I am sure Mr. Obama (Barry’s dad) was not.

      The Lame Duck House could head up an investigation that would indict the president (not capitalized on purpose) and he, “Queen” Nancy and several others, perhaps “Dirty Harry” amongst them could be charged with election fraud, treason, and a few other High Crimes.

      Why would the “loyal Democrats” do this to their beloved president?

      I’ll give you one guess. Could it be they would blame him, Nancy and Harry and his policies and their pushing them to vote with no discussion for bills none of them read, thus making them pawns?

      Noooo. That would be Toooo like a novel. Really?

      If the Lame Ducks don’t do it, I’ll trust the 40 eager “Tea Party” members of the 60 or so freshmen in the house to “Bring it” in January.

      If they don’t, woe betide us…

      • Lewis Munn

        Just curious where the information that BOTH parents have to be US citizens is found, to meet the birth requirements.

        This has never come out before from anywhere. But it does seem to ring a bell from way back in my schooling.

        Would you please elaborate on chapter and verse? Thanks.

        • Vigilant

          “Just curious where the information that BOTH parents have to be US citizens is found, to meet the birth requirements.”

          Lewis, only one parent needs to be a citizen.

          I am American (born & raised) and I have 5 children, 3 of whom were born overseas and 2 who were born in the USA. In all 5 cases, the mother was not a US citizen. The children born overseas each have a US State Dept. Report of US Citizen Born Abroad in addition to birth certificates.

          Any of my children could be president of the US from a legal standpoint.

  • Schwab, New Jersey

    FINALLY, someone has suggested cutting foreign aid. How about starting with all those countries who hate us. Let’s defund all of our foreign enemies. That would be an amazing first step. The more we give to these countries the more that hate us. Very often the old adage “No good deed goes unpunished” is TRUE

    • DaveH

      The most important thing is that it is not Government’s money to give whether to individuals or to countries of individuals. We need to get Government out of the business of charity. They have no business giving other peoples’ money away.

      Schwab,

      Lest we temporarily overlook the fact; every dollar the U.S. gives in foreign aid simply adds interest onto an ever increasing debt. Good for those members of the oligarchy, but, very bad for Americans and our future generations.

    • Lewis Munn

      I agree. I have wondered why we continue to aid those who hate us, and the more they hate and attack us, the more we send them! Or so it seems.

      I guess those who are in control think real friendship can be bought and sold. Their education was defective. But it sticks in my mind that Islaam lists buying off enemies as legitimate. But my reading of the Qur’an was rather long ago, so I cannot name chapter and verse there either.

      I know the Qur’an speaks well of deceit in dealing with enemies!!

    Please look into the Libertarian Party – The Party of Principle. As John Stossel regularly points out, very few people have a clue what we stand for. And many of those that do know think that we promote the usage of drugs. We do not. In fact, I don’t even take aspirin. And I rarely even drink alcohol. We just know that the Drug Wars are futile and cause more problems than they cure, and that Governments are trampling our freedom using the Drug Wars as an excuse. And we firmly believe that Individuals have a right to control their own body and property, as long as they don’t harm other peoples’ bodies or property. But we won’t support them with other peoples’ unwilling money if their choices prove to be mistaken. People learn best by experience. And the rest of us shouldn’t be punished for doing the right things by being forced to pay for those people who don’t.

    The statement: “Every single committee in Congress will be chaired by a Republican” isn’t correct. Senators are congressmen too, and the Senate still has more Democrats than Republicans. Article I, Section 1 reads: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    They said that the Hispanic voters were the ones who had Dirty Harry Reid put back in Congress. Dirty Harry received over 90 percent of the Hispanic vote. So I guess this is why Dirty Harry won the Senate Seat again. This man is dirty. I would not trust him as far as I could throw a horse by the tail. Another thing, I do not have anything thing against the Hispanic people. Most of them are decent hard working folks, but they are playing a big part in who gets elected to Congress.

  • DavidL

    Really Chip?
    You wrote: “…no matter what President Barak Obama wants, no matter what the Senate approves, and no matter what the present law says, the House can “just say no!” to spending any money on it”.

    Really? The Republicans just announced they will raise the debt ceiling to over 14 trillion. This opens the door to more debt. The republicans just announced they are going to repeal the new health reform law. Doing so will add over 100 billion to our deficit. The Republicans want to make permanent the tax cuts for the wealthy. This will add 700 billion to the deficit. The Republicans want to repeal wall street financial regulation and let them run wild again. (Taxpayer bailouts anyone?)

    Don’t look know, but welcome to the year 2000.

    • Brad

      DavidL,

      Oh really so who is calling the kettle black my friend, read this “Even earlier this year, when President Obama had large Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, it took many months to pass a $1.9 trillion debt ceiling increase to the current $14.294 trillion level”.

      So why aren’t you crying about the “rats” in congress, their raising the debt ceiling??? Now what we are going to have is a show down from the mid 90′s, it’s going to be damed if we do or damed if we don’t, Clinton caused govenment to shut down with his budgit, congress tried to balance the budgit and got railroaded by Clinton. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, congress will do the right thing and leave the debt ceiling alone, Ohmama has to tightend his belt and request a budgit we can live with that won’t create further deficit spending.

    • http://none Mike

      David , I feel so sorry for you in this. 1 When tax rates are low revenues to the goverment actually increase. Because the people with the money start to spend it.2 How is getting rid a a bill that is unconstituanal going to add billions to our debt. Thats the exact oppisit of what is going to happen. If us(In the form of the goverment)arent going to fund it we loose what debt it was set up to build.3 Libritarian I would really question that at this point nearly all of them I know are for H.R. 25 You know that silly idea that we get a sales tax and repeal the 16th?4 Repeal any unconstitunal goverment dabbling in the economy. These folks have set the regulations have had their hand in the till from the very beginning. Useing regulations to pick winners and loosers and if you dont play their game you are the looser.5 Slam the door on the fed before its too late and the fox has made off with all the hens. That we the people turned responsibility for our money to a dubious behind the scens bank who profiteers off our debt we were the blind ones. Guess what we opend our eyes in this last election.6 Crush all job killing fees and taxes. Or did you forget that the corperation dosent pay the burden of the fees and taxes? No they pass that on to the consumer in the form of higher prices.7 Slam shut the gates on our borders line it with gatlin guns and dare the drug pushers and flood of illeagles to cross.Damit enough is enough we get our people killed every day by tieng their hands with P.C. crap while the criminals just laugh and give us the finger as they go by. Last but not least if you arent going to support anything in the conservitive/ libritarian agenda please sit down shut up and get out of the way of the people who really do Mike L.

      David, the only thing to do is to cut spending. Countries should not spend more than what they have coming in. Why should they keep printing more money and lowering the value of the money we already have? I blame the government for a lot of the economic condition were having since they are the one that helped drive our companies overseas when they passed NAFTA. I do believe that if our government would lower the corporate tax rate, do away with some of the stringest rules the EPA imposes on them, get the unions to work with them, instead of against them, the factories would return back to the US. What our government needs to do is to meet with the representatives of these corporations that have left this country and see what the government needs to do to entice them to come back over to the United States again. If I was a Congressman this is exactly what I would do. You have got to negotiate with these corporations, and see just what we need to do to get them back on our soil. If the unions are smart they would lower the pay demands for the members. Lower pay is better than no job at all. I have yet to hear one Congress member mention anything about this!!! I wonder why????

  • Carlucci

    Dave is right. I’m a Libertarian, too. The Libertarians have all the good ideas. We had a fantastic Libertarian running for Texas governor this year, but unfortunately an entrenched Bush brown-noser career politician ran and won. Dr. Ron Paul ran on the Libertarian ticket years ago when his former constituents asked him to run again. The Republican slot was filled, so he took the Libertarian slot and won by a landslide. More Libertarians can get into office if conservative Americans understand what they are all about.

  • Patriot38

    Talk, talk, talk! Bitchin’ is just twitchen’ I hope the newbie Congressmen take off the gloves, ignore the ‘Good Ole Boys’ club and get bare knuckles mean!

    We need term limits put in, the Federal Reserve put out, Obamas time limited to 1 term maximum, Obama’s Chicago Hoods (Czars) removed and replaced by honest Cabinet members vetted by Congress, the Congress to quit being wimps and delegating their job to even lesser qualified people than themselves, the size of the government reduced to efficient and Constitutional dimensions, have no Bill that won’t stand alone with no earmarks or ‘poison pills’ allowed to be added, the Constitution recognized as the ‘Law of the Land’ and not just toilet paper, the health plan replaced with a working model, Cap and Trade scuttled, the House seats assigned by random selection or alphabetical order like in Kindergarten to reduce cliques and their Party affiliations hung on a hook outside the door of the Chamber, and Common sense exercised! If we had less lawyers and preachers in there, who are trained to be super convincing even when wrong or agenda promoting with lies and deceptions, we would have a lot less jawboning!

    Maybe, just maybe, we could then get them down to work together to resolve something besides who to name some building for, who brought home the most bacon, or had the most earmarks, or who to congratulate for the longest steam bath or how much Scotch he can consume. Lobbyists should not be allowed within a thousand yards of a Congressman, and be blocked from their computers.

    This constant bickering about insignificant crap just to keep the sheeple distracted so they won’t notice the subversion going on has to stop, or the country will stop because of it. This is supposed to be the United States, not the Politically Correct Disunited States. We are a Republic, not a Democracy, and we should remember this. As a Sovereign Nation, United we stand, Divided we fail! Democratic Progressives and the super-sized Labor Unions are akin to Communists/Socialists, and should be gotten under control ASAP; neither benefit the country and they tend to promote its failure. Capitalism and Free Marketing is what this country was built on, under God, but like President Reagan once said, in order to control the greedy, “Trust but Verify!” Watch them like a hawk.

    If you love your country, and respect the Constitution, then fight to retain them, else shut up, sit down, and and let real Patriots do their work, or we will all sink on the failed Ship of State! Now, Git’er Done!

        So where are you getting this 100 trillion more added to the national debt…are you playing on the progressive propaganda machine again, go home sober up you have been drinking Ohmama’s koolaid, you aren’t thinking strait. What this country needs right now are jobs, 9.6% of Americans are out of work, we don’t need Obamacare, we don’t need financial reform right now, we don’t need the fed’s QE2 deflating our currency causing massive inflation. Sooner or later we are going to start selling off parts of our country just to pay off the debt, lets just sell the entire west coast of the US for 3.5 trillion so we can pay down the national debt.

    I’m happy for everyone else who is delighted for the election. I am one who is not! I live in Oregon where it’s mostly Democrats and these people here have to be the most naive people I have ever seen. They voted the same stupid nuts back into office and they have done nothing to keep jobs or create jobs here since we lost the Timber and Fishing industry back in the 80′s. This state is a joke. I joined the FreedomWorks, GOP, Aftershock and the Glen Beck show and I asked for help and we didn’t get any till the last minute and it didn’t help one bit. The media did not even cover Oregon at all. Fox had Wyden as a winner(democ) and that’s all. So I’m really disappointed in all.

    Oregon needed a Republican Governor sooooo bad this year and we couldn ‘t even get anyone to help us out. WOW!! How’s that for democracy.

    I’m disabled and can’t get around very good, but I can get on the internet which I do, but couldn’t get anyone to email me back or answer any of my request, except to ask for donations, that they did ask for and I gave what I could, but did not get any help for our state at all.

      I too am a disappointed native Oregonian. I made every effort to educate voters to make the right decision for an economic recovery in our state. The sad fact is; we conservatives are outnumbered by the “takers” (Oregon Health Plan, Food Stamps, assisted housing and heating allowances, and so on, and last, but, not least; the public employeed unions). Oregon had an increase of over 6,000 gov’t workers hired at various levels over the past two years, while the state ranked 3rd from the highest in unemployment.

      We are rapidly approaching the “tipping point”, and with a liberal like Kitzhaber being elected, we will reach that point much sooner.

Is it because they need the taxpayers help also? The only reason the Dems cater to them is to get their vote, otherwise the hell with them.

    Dear colleagues: Please be assured that this current election is only a FIRST STEP. The real work of outfits like the Tea Party is just beginning, in the form of continuous involvement and oversight.

    There are plenty of solutions . They just need implementation, which we shall pursue with vigor.For example, bringing our jobs back from overseas: “Take a review of our tariff system regarding goods that are manufactured overseas by American businesses. Touch on that and we’ll see some change that makes manufacturing here more desirable. In addition, sweeten it up with some tax advantages, such as investment and relocation tax credits.

    I’m a conservative and would even vote for a democrat if I believed they stood for conservative pronciples. I don’t know of any. I’m delighted about the election results but very disappointed that Reid won and they didn;t get control of the Senate. It’s interesting how the demecrat always wins the close elections.

    Certainly we need to take our country back and get contol over the out of control committes and government agencies. We need to immedietly get control of our borders and absulutly no amnesty to anyone who is here illegal. I will bet that if the demacrats believed that 90% of the illigals would vote democrat if given amnesty they would be headed South real fast.

    Finally one more point. Conservatives most stay alert and involved going forward. We cleaned house in 1986, 1994 and each time the liberals came back with replacements that were far worse than the ones defeated. We must prevent that from happening again. This time we must continue work on getting rid of the bad ones that are left and prevent any liberal comeback.

    Little humor to keep you all going:

    Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Southener?

    Here is a little test that will help you decide.

    The answer can be found by posing the following question:

    You’re walking down a
    deserted street with your wife
    and two small children.

    Suddenly, a Terrorist with a huge knife
    comes around the corner,
    locks eyes with you,
    screams obscenities,
    raises the knife, and charges at you…

    You are carrying a
    Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP, and you are an expert shot.
    You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
    What do you do?

    THINK CAREFULLY AND
    THEN SCROLL DOWN:

    Democrat’s Answer:

    Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question!
    What is a Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP?
    Does the man look poor or oppressed?
    Is he really a terrorist? Am I guilty of profiling?
    Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
    Could we run away?
    What does my wife think?
    What about the kids?
    Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?
    What does the law say about this situation?
    Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?
    Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?
    Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me?
    Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
    If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
    Should I call 9-1-1?
    Why is this street so deserted?
    We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day.
    Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
    I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.
    This is all so confusing!

  • Eric Bischoff

    It made me laugh my head off. But unlike most of you who are giddy with the results of the Republicans and conservatives taking back control, I was laughing at the stupidity.

    You are all understandably angry because Obama bailed out the banksters. But the real funny part is that you voted back in the party that brought us to this debacle in the first place.

    And I wonder if any of you know that the real reason the Republican Politicians are angry with Obama is because they think he did not give the Banksters enough money. They wanted more. Now that’s funny!

    • Teresa

      I feel sorry for people like you who are so blinded by the bias media and false truths…yes there are just as many dirty republicans as there is democrats nobody is arguing the fact but Obama was on the house of senates when Bush was President and the bills were passed and he is just as much to blame for our economic fault as anyone, the deomocrats held majority then REMEMBER! We hold ALL of congress accountable not just one party. What we as Americans are so angry about are the fact that Obama and his administration are Breaking OUR constitutional rights Period! He is suppose to be leading OUR nation not dividing it. The man is living in a fantasy world and actually believes he may be helping in some way but he isn’t because he has NO idea how the common person REALLY lives end of story. He is destroying this nation and if you cant see it than you are the sad one not us.

      • Eric Bischoff

          I see him reacting like a common man with no morals or consideration for others…selfish, going wild helping himself to the till and spending for his “friends” who will help themselves while he holds the till open. And be friends as long as the till holds out!

      So let’s get it over Roger, I don’t want to live in your America any more than you don’t want to live in mine. Conservative republicans have already demonstrated that they don’t want to compromise, let’s split up. Personally I refuse to be ruled by people who are more interested in money and profits than the well being of it’s people.

      You all claim to be for more freedom but your idea of freedom is really freedom to make more money even it it means destroying the environment. But when it comes to freedom for others who aren’t exactly like you then it”s another story. Then you are quick to deny others their freedom. Like gays who want to marry or people who would rather get high on marijuana than alcohol or the freedom to organize unions for better wages and benefits or women who want to have control over their bodies. None of these people can have their freedom. For them you want to impose your will and you will make use of the power of the govt you loathe so much to impose it. It’s hypocritical.

      • S.C.Murf

        Remember this Country was founded on the principles of the Bible. The bible say’s no to gays, says no to drugs and alcohol etc., maybe we want to get back to the same principles that our founding fathers had when they fought and died for this country. If you don’t like it then I suggest you try Cuba, Iraq, Iran etc.

        • Karolyn

          S.C. You don’t even really know what the founding fathers were doing. They could all have been smoking a doobie when they signed the Declaration of Independence. Do you STILL believe the story of George Washington and the cherry tree? Yes, the Constitution may be based on many PRINCIPLES of the Bible but not on the Bible itself. Thomas Jefferson cut out all references to Jesus being God in his Bible. He believe in the Book but not the validity of the stories. The lessons are more important than anything else. I’ve already been through refuting many of the claims of Bible-thumpers regarding homosexuality in the Bible. It all depends on your translation and interpretation.

          • Lewis Munn

            Try the Lamsa translation from the Pshitta text in the original Aramaic!

    We need to show more sympathy for these people.
    * They travel miles in the heat.
    * They risk their lives crossing a border.
    * They don’t get paid enough wages.
    * They do jobs that others won’t do or are afraid to do.
    * They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak
    a different language.
    * They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~
    every day.
    I’m not talking about illegal Mexicans. I’m talking about our military
    troops! Doesn’t it seem strange that many Democrats and Republicans

    New Pledge of Allegiance
    (TOTALLY AWESOME)!

    Since the Pledge of Allegiance
    and The Lord’s Prayer
    Are not allowed in most
    Public schools anymore
    Because the word ‘God’ is mentioned…..
    A kid in Arizona wrote the attached

    NEW School prayer:

    Now I sit me down in school
    Where praying is against the rule
    For this great nation under God
    Finds mention of Him very odd.

    If Scripture now the class recites,
    It violates the Bill of Rights.
    And anytime my head I bow
    Becomes a Federal matter now.

    Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
    That’s no offense; it’s a freedom scene..
    The law is specific, the law is precise.
    Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

    For praying in a public hall
    Might offend someone with no faith at all..
    In silence alone we must meditate,
    God’s name is prohibited by the state.

    We’re allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
    And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks…
    They’ve outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
    To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

    We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
    And the ‘unwed daddy,’ our Senior King.
    It’s ‘inappropriate’ to teach right from wrong,
    We’re taught that such ‘judgments’ do not belong…

    We can get our condoms and birth controls,
    Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles..
    But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
    No word of God must reach this crowd.

    It’s scary here I must confess,
    When chaos reigns the school’s a mess.
    So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
    Should I be shot; My soul please take!
    Amen

    If you aren’t ashamed to do this, Please pass this on.
    Jesus said, ‘If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed
    of you before my Father.’

    The Cowboy solution to save Gasoline

    OBAMA wants us to cut the amount of gasoline we use…..

    The best way to stop using so much gasoline is to deport 15 million illegal immigrants!

    That would be 15 million less people using our gas.

    The price of gas would come down…..
    Bring our troops home from Afghanistan to guard the borders….

    When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the

    Border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Afghanistan….

    Tell him if he wants to come to AMERICA then he must serve a tour in OUR military….

    Give him a soldier’s pay while he’s there and tax him on it….

    After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country…..

    He will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal resident…..

    This option will probably deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Afghanistan and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves.. ……

    If they refuse to serve, ship them to Afghanistan anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo…..

    Problem solved…..

    • http://www.allluxuryhomes.us Bill Ascherfeld

      Teresa,

      I like your idea about our troops, the wages they get paid and what we ask of them.

      I also like the Cowboy’s solution to the cost of gasoline.

      Of course, we really should be looking at deporting 20 – 30 Million, not 15. And, I really don’t care about Afghanistan any more than Pakistan or Turkistan, or Arabstan, or any other “stan”. Leave that to the Taliban, Shiites, Sunnis, Wahhabis, and other Islam sects to fight over. We don’t need them.

      Maybe we should just give the deportees a rifle, some ammo, and a canteen, and ship them to Mexico with the directive: “Kill drug dealers and take over.”

      We don’t need them back in this country. We need a safe and sound Mexico so our tourists, students, and retirees can feel safe while living down there.

      Many people have hinted that Saudi-Arabia is hiding the end of their big oil production years.

      While I am all for “Green Energy”, solar, wind, Ocean Waves, etc., until we can make commercial jets run on Solar Power,Safe Atomic Energy, or really light, compact batteries we will need oil long into the 22nd century. A mostly un-mentioned new source of oil on our own continent—no more Of Shore Gulf disasters—are places like The Bakken formation in the Williston Basin.

      Developing those formations, the North Slope and careful development in The Gulf of Mexico—instead of the Chinese, British and European interlopers who are doing it as we think, would make us not only Oil Independent, but, a world supplier. Oil could be the next generation’s answer to paying off the Obama Debt!

      When we are independent of foreign oil, we can tell the Chinese (who loan us the money to buy it), The Arabians, Iranians, and the like to, “Take a hike!”

      I like the school-boy poem, but, I believe it was prompted by the current concept of “Political Correctness” on steroids.

      Our current pledge is good for all real Americans. If there are any among us who are that afraid of God, or disturbed at hearing the Word of God, or seeing a cross on a hilltop dedicated to God, then he or she, does not belong in this country, even though born here. I am sure those people can find many Godless countries to which they can flee.

      We must come out of our “Politically Correct” trance and get back to, “Calling a spade a spade”, “Damn the Torpedoes, and Full speed ahead, “Rules of Engagement” that favor our winning Absolute Victory and Unconditional surrender of our foes in war!”

  • Cynthia

    I have no doubt that some of the elections were stolen by Democrats. They have ACORN to help them. With the new GOP wins, I want to see our borders sealed and laws enforced (no amnesty!); subpoenas for Obama and his cronies; defund the salaries for his czars; an end to the unions (they should be made extinct); audit the Fed; put our children’s education back in the hands of the states (goodbye teachers’ unions!); get out of the UN, kick them out of New York and defund it; repeal ObamaCare; put the student loans back in the hands of the banks and credit unions where they belong; put the missile defense shield in Europe like we intended; no more bailouts (so California with Governor Moonbeam and New York with Governor Cuomo are out of luck with the GOP wins); shrink the size of government and get out of the private sector so businesses can hire and put people back to work; cut out the welfare and food stamps (that’s what churches and charities are for when people need help); phase out Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security (privatize them and they’ll be more likely to work); term limits for congress, eliminate their cushy retirement plans and we the people get to determine their salaries (I’m all for $13,000 a year – I’m tired of all the millionaire elites in congress); keep Obama’s filthy hands off our IRA’s and 401k’s (I prefer keeping it with my credit union, thank you very much!). I could go on and on, but those are the ones that come to mind.

Keep the change Mr. Jokester. Mr. Lincoln said it best, “Tyranny will come from within.” Guess who is the boss now? Haha, a tyrannical communist, anti-America, pro-Islamic, and fake Christian. Do I need to say any more about anything ? Oops, forgot one more thing, maybe he is a fagot gay banger of ‘ol days. Don’t pick up the soap on the floor. Come get me you fake president. Come and put me in jail for my freedom of speech against your evil ways. Come and try, for I have only One with me, His name is God I trust, who do you have against me?

            “e pluribus unum” Out of many, One. The point of being an American is not what culture you came from but your desire and ability to ASSIMILATE the culture that the founding fathers created here. A shining city on the hill where the content of your character is what is important and not the color of your skin.

            A country where Free Will is the un-named most cherished cultural ideal. The ideal that ALL people were created by their creator as equal and blessed with certain inalienable rights SOME of which were listed in the founding documents.

            The right to life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness. More rights were mentioned in the “Bill of Rights”.

            We as a people will have our disagreements. But we are of one CLASS. All the attempts to pocket us with “the evil rich” “the middle class” “the working class” “the working poor” are just attempts by those who would dictate a path rather than lead a path. They are attempts by petty tyrants to control us and separate us so we will surly fall.

            We must stop trying to control our neighbors and start working with them to assimilate the ideals that this country was founded on. To make us again the shining city on the hill. A place where laws are few and to the point and freedom of choice and informed acceptance of the responsibilities of choice is again our most valued ideal.
            For all of our people (including the not yet born).

            JoeH, Once kids get on drugs its hard to get tehm off___Our Daughter got hooked on heroin, via a boyfriend who was on it.__3 years she was on it__Her weight went south and she wore size 0__She was robbing us blind, stealing money, forging checks and stealing items out the house to pawn.___ and one night I’d had enough. My Dad was sick and dying and she stole my Dads car to get her fix. I put an APB out on her and told the police to find her before I did, because if ya don’t, shes gonna need an ambulance. She came home the same time the police showed up. I told them to put her in jail. I told her if you clean your azz up you can come home, but if you continue with this life, find another place to live__ It was the hardest thing I’d ever done.__It’s called tough love__but shes 8 years clean, happily married with two kids._-believe you me, it’s a tough row to hoe.

          • Claire

            Angel–You did what you had to do. And I agree with you. I would have done the same. This situation could have destroyed you and your husband’s life forever. A person raises their kids to the best of their ability-the kid has to learn to think for themselves eventually and some will make wrong choices. This sounds terrible but raising kids can be a crap shoot. A parent just has to do the best they can and pray and hope for the best.

  • Angel Wannabe

    Good Article!!__Honestly_ The Re pubs need to understand something, this landslide of a election was not about them. This was about rejecting the progressive trance & policies, that hypnotised Washington since Obama took over two years ago!!___Quite Frankly, I wanted to see more of Tea Party members win, but in reality, I didn’t think they were going to be well accepted by either party, on they’re first trip through an election. I think the incumbents like they’re old blood in there, so they can manipulate each other around. I don’t think the newbies, would’ve been as easily manipulated!__ I also don’t think, that by any means the Tea Party should be discouraged!!_They’ve have a lot of backbone, they’re Conservatives, they have alot of followers,_but they need to keep up the momentum!!__Like all good things in life, its gonna takes time!!!___I’d like to take this opportunity to thank President Obama__FOR WAKING the AMERICAN PEOPLE UP!_-The Constitution IS alive and well, and WE THE PEOPLE are holding it dear in our hearts and hands. We want our newly appointed Representatives to do the same, come Jan!!!__Either your with us or against us, it’s quite simple!__ Repubs you have been given a golden oppertunity, to change the landscape in Washington, the Good Lord took your shovel away, and gave you a dozer, now lets get our backs into it, and move some ground!
    God Bless America!

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the answer to all our troubles is right in front of us. The Constitution of the United States. The Constitution followed the Tea Party. We’ve had our party, now we need our Constitution. Hold those freeloaders in DC to it.

      Yea, our Founding Fathers had our back. The least we can do is have our kids back.

    This is what is wrong with the political party as a whole.. The elitist beleive everyone is so stupid we can’t take an asprin without their consent… The obamas the reida and pelosis have ripped this counrty off long enough, they must aLL GO!

      Just curious. Can you personally do everything to live in the manner you wish to live? Plant, grow, harvest, store, hunt food? Make your own cloth and clothing? Build your own comfortable home? Care for your own diseases and accidents? Raise educated healthy children? Fend off bigger lazier selfish people who want what you have?

      If so, I will certainly not stop you, until you infringe on my rights to do likewise, in a manner I choose, which might include a Government!

  • Dee

    Just heard on the news that now nancy pelosi will be running for house minority leader. Sure hope she doesn’t make it. We’d have enough of her.
    As for harry reid, he got back in as all the mexicans voted for him.
    Wonder how many of there were illegal.

    • Raggs

      I heard there were at least 90% illegals voting for him… Go figure huh… The problem is obama will do the same thing in 12…

      Yeah I find it digusting pelosi cannot take a hint…
      Maybe we need a bigger stick?

      • Karolyn

        Raggs – You “heard…” Who from, your friends? Who heard it from…..who heard it from… The fact is, the democrats have a relationship with hispanic-American CITIZENS, where the repubs do not. Therefore, the Hispanic vote went to Reid. That also contributed to the Dem victories in CA. I guess the repubs don’t think they’re worthy of developing a relationship with them. The same goes for African-Americans. I think what you “heard” is that 90% of the Hispanic vote went to Reid. Uh, not all Hispanics in the US are illegal.

        • Raggs

          Karo…

          Yes I did hear… 90% of the dumbasses voted for reid… Anymore questions?

        • Angel Wannabe

          karolyn, those who mosty voted for Harry Reid were illegals and the Unions a$$ kissers?!!!__If this is true that the Hispanics are in the Dems pockets, explain the Rubio win in florida??!__He’s a Conservative!!_-not hispanic people belive what the DEms have to offer, they love Home and Family & accountibility just like we do. A lot of them don’t like sucking off the Government Teat!!!!

          • Karolyn

            Rubio won because of the huge Cuban population. Not all Hispanics vote as one block. There are Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Puerto Ricans and then the smaller blocks. My point is that the Democrats pay more attention to the minority populations than the Repubs do. I heard someone speaking on the radio yesterday who threw out the idea that if the Republicans don’t wake up and start courting the minorities, they’re really gonna be in trouble as those populations increase. Sounds logical to me. The repubs are still viewed by most as the party of the white and rich.

          • Karolyn

            I would also add that I think it is small of you to intimate that, in general, Hispanic-Americans are “sucking off the government teat” and that some of them have good family and moral values. I would venture to say that the majority of them have good family values. They are, after all, just like everyone else.

  • H Whitten

    Tuesday’s election results should not be viewed as a victory but the realization of the initial step toward returning our Nation to it’s roots of Constitutional and fiscal correctness.

    Actually, the financial mess we find ourselves in now began in 1977. This is when President Carter signed into effect the Depository Institutions Deregulation & Monetary Control Act which pressured financial institutions to extend home loans to those who would otherwise not qualify. Then in 1993 President Clinton extensively rewrote Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s rules turning the quasi-private mortgage-funding firms into semi-nationalized monopolies dispensing cash and loans to large Democratic voting blocks and handing favors, jobs and contributions to political allies. This potent mix led inevitably to corruption and now the collapse of Freddie and Fannie. Despite warnings in 1994, Clinton unveiled his National Home-Ownership Strategy, which broadened the Community Reinvestment Act in ways congress never intended. Then in 1995 with Congress about to change from a Democrat majority to Republican, Clinton orders Robert Rubin’s Treasury Department to rewrite the rules. Rubin reworked the Treasury rules, forcing banks to satisfy quotas for sub-prime and minority loans to get a satisfactory CRA rating. The rating was key to expansion or mergers for banks. Loans began to be made on the basis of race and little else. Then from 1997-1999 President Clinton, bypassing Republicans in Congress, enlisted Andrew Cuomo, then Secretary of Housing and Urban Developement, to allow Freddie and Fannie to get into the sub-prime market in a BIG way. Led by Rep. Barney Frank and Sen. Chris Dodd, congress doubled down on the risk by easing capital limits and allowing them to hold just 2.5% of capital to back their investments vs. 10% for banks. Since they could borrow at lower rates than banks their enterprises boomed. With incentives in place, banks poured billions in loans into poor communities, often with “no docs”, “no income”, “no assets”, requiring no money down, no verification of income, no nothing. Worse still was the cronyism: Fannie and Freddie became home to out-of work-politicians, mostly Clinton Democrats. 384 politicians got big campaign donations from Fannie and Freddie. Over $200 million had been spent on lobbying and political activities. During the 1990′s Fannie and Freddie enjoyed a subsidy of as musch as $182 Billion, most of it going to principals and shareholders, not poor borrowers as claimed. Did it work? Minorities made up 49% of the 12.5 million new homeowners but many of those loans have gone bad and the minority homeownership rates have plummeted. It wasn’t until President Obama took control with his radical socialistic agenda that it reached a level of complete insanity which culminated in the “Sub-prime Crisis” and financial meltdown.

    To me gridlock is not acceptable! We saw this during the last 4 years of President Bush’s presidency. Our President and Congress has a responsibility to govern in accordance with the will of “the people.” Therefore, the conservative groups and individuals that has lead this swell of dissatification must continue to push even harder issueing a mandate to return our Nation back to its roots and once again a level of global respectability. We deserve and must demand that they govern within reasonable means (budget) and take steps to eliminate our national debt. They must focus their efforts on encouraging commerce and job growth through small businesses which employ the majority of the workforce while encouraging individuals to educate themselves to become employable and off of welfare roles. They must secure our borders and protect us from terrorists. We must return to being a God-fearing Nation as I fear He has removed His hand from us over the last several years. America must once again be known as an ally of Israel. They must protect the scanctity of marriage and life. They must openly receive those that seek citizenship legally but deport those that are in our Country illegally. The Federal Government must not sue our individual States but permit them to govern in a way that is best for their constituents as intended under our Constitution. They must slash foreign aid, eliminate all funds for “community activist” groups like ACORN, and cut subsidies and supervision of farms, schools, banks, automobile companies, etc. Representative Boehner and the Republicans in the House MUST do all of this and much more. but they won’t if we don’t continue to demand that our voice is heard. There is much to be done. So, stay focused and keep up the good fight and lets reclaim our Nation for ourselves but especially for the sake of our children and grandchildren. And, may God bless America!!!

    • Richard Pawley

      Don’t forget the overthrow of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 by the Republican bill, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which the Congress and Clinton signed (the worse thing he did while president) that opened the door for the banks to invent derivatives (or expand them in new ways) and all the other things they were forbidden to do since the last Great Depression. It only took them and greed 8 years to bring down the system and no amount of money can fix it now. Of course the present 111th Congress has tried their best to crash the system via the teachings of Cloward and Piven with their socialism and increased spending. Bush and Clinton and Obama and even Wilson get blamed but it is Congress who passes the bills that affect us all. Obama is doing all he can to make them irrelevant but their insane spending of the past four years is going to result in at least 200% inflation, perhaps 20% in 2011 and much more in 2012. He will have no chance of being re-elected but will go home to Chicago almost a hated man because he will be blamed for the chaos that is coming (and he will be partly to blame) BUT IT IS CONGRESS WHO AUTHORIZES THE SENDING. I hope and pray we have no more than 200% inflation and thereby is the key to all the reasonable things you suggest. Prayer. The founding fathers knew that the form of government they gave us could not survive without a moral self-governing people who were inspired by God and all He has given us. Sadly we have gotten cocky like ancient Israel and have thought we have accomplished all that we have by ourselves whereas it has been praying people who have carried the weight of atheists and those who have no time for God. Many prayed for the weeks and months prior to this election like they had not prayed in years and the results have been more than interesting. However, believers need to continue to pray for those they have sent to Washington as the temptations there are unbelievable and many good men and women in the past have been corrupted by the availability of whatever they want as long as they vote a certain way. The Tea Party must not let up and we must try to keep the ship of state that the 111th Congress has tried to sink in debt from collapsing. We have always been the one to rescue others but who will rescue us? Right now it is the Chinese who are keeping us afloat but they have come to realize that we are not fiscally responsible and they are not likely to continue to do this much longer. It’s why the government is just printing money out of thin air although they have other names for it, but by any name, doing such has never ended well. We must cut government spending till it hurts or the patient will not survive. This health care bill was designed to sink the country in debt over a decade but if Americans get fed up with the FED and the irresponsible senate and all the trillions they have wasted, well, I know the end game. I see it. I’ve written about it in two books. It is going to be far worse than the Great Depression. The only thing I can’t tell you is when it will all happen. Some of my most reliable sources believe within 24 to 36 months. All I can say is for believers to pray and for all to prepare. Gold will go higher but you can’t eat it so make sure you have at least a few months supply of non-perishable freeze dried food for when the price takes offs. Inflation alone will pay for it. I believe a time is coming when such food will go up proportionally greater than gold. I hope I’m wrong but I have seen nothing in the 20 years I’ve studied this as a hobby to convince me otherwise. It will not be the end of the world but it will certainly seem like it and if WWIII really blossoms millions could die. If enough believers pray we could continue to see miracles and it will take more than one to save our economy and the dollar. Since there is no down side to preparing for hard times I don’t see why those who can will not. Don’t go crazy over this, but do what you can. Something is better than nothing. There is time enough to prepare but not time enough to waste. We can hope for the best but we had better prepare for the worse and the most it will cost us is time and it will save us money.

  • Scott

    The true answer is:
    kick out all career politicians
    term limits
    campaign funding limits
    get rid of the fed
    enforce all immigration laws
    enforce E verify

    Then the revolution might be averted and the country will be returned to the people.

    • Raggs

      No not really… On E-verify anyway…

      E-verify is just another intrusion on your personal being produced by a communistic / fascist government.. Hitler did this in the form of tatoos.

      This will open the door for an implanted device in your body.
      And I have to wonder why you would implant a device in a citizen of this country when a non-citizen has no such?

      Illegal issues need to be based on the so-called “leaders” meaning they will not take any action because they get their votes. And nobody will ever plant a device in me without one of us dieing in the process!!!!
      This is simply an excuse to take more of my rights away and give the government more power over me, NOY GOING TO HAPPEN!

      If you really want to fix the illegal problem, start with obama and get rid of him… otherwise sit in your chair and do nothing…

  • Scott

    Raggs, you drive a car-own a gun-have a cedit card- ever bought a house-made a loan-served in the military-etc? Then guess what you don’t need a tag because they already have your life history and more. You kid yourself if you think you have any privacy-private enterprise and government have taken all that away long time ago. Tatoeing or putting a chip in you is old tech (facial recognition technology and etc.).

    • Raggs

      Scott, I can see you missed my point.

      So I will spell it out.

      I do not need a verification system to prove who I am.. I have a Birth cert unlike obama!
      I will not sit back in my chair and let someone that is called a leader dictate to me what he thinks I should do!
      If you beleive further government intrusion into everyones personal life is the answer to all of your problems than I suggest you move your ass to China!

      obama wants to criminalize the population, it is a progressive strategy to gain the system…

      I can’t help but wonder which rock you crawled from under.

      • http://none Mike

        Raggs, He was just trying to make the point that they dont need the chip anymore with data base facial recognition tech at what it is now every time you walk by a security camera they know who you are. Orwell had it right he was just a little early in his prediction. Mike L.

    Private to Chip Wood. Chip, your name might as well be Bob Smith, as far as getting a personal E-mail address… There are 25 “Chip Wood”s identified by google.

    Relitive to your post here, the guy above me, SCOTT, forgot only one thing: KICK THE UN OUT OF NYC and our “Land of the Free!”. Then rent the HQ to homless @ $100 a month.

    Relitive to: “we got 60 Republicans elected in the House, therefore, WE will have NO democrats etc.. Well, in my experence (75 years on this planet), you have to watch Republicans like a hawk, for fear they colude with the Dems.– Sen. McCain of AZ co-authoring the Kennedy Illegal Alien Amnesty bill, of all things!!
    60 more Republicans in The House is a good start, don’t get me wrong — thats 20 more than they needed.– It sends The Usurper a clear message. And, I agree with you, too bad Sharron Angle could not have slipped into Harry Reid’s seat…

    BUT: most of all, there are too many times when the Republican is wearing Blue underpants. Meg Witman (who ran for governor against Jerry (“Labor Unions in my back pocket”) Brown.

    Chelene Nightingale was running on the American Independent Party ticket. Too bad The Tea Party, or some other “Political Quorum” couldn’t have backed her to win.

    Carly Fiorina clearly had too much baggage the Dems. could put into attack ads. There were 4 other candidates no one ever heard about. Even Marsha Feinland of the Peace and Freedom Party may have been a better choice than either Carly or Barbara.

    See what I mean??

    This next election: 2012 will be a “World Ender” if Barry Soetoro gets re-elected like “Slick Willie” did even after it seemed he was “tarnished goods”.

    Between now and then, the real, Constitutional Conservatives are going to have to “Wield a mighty sword”. The leading edge of that Mighty Weapon will have to be a “Tea Party”-like “Leadership-of-We,-The-People”. A “Quorum” in every voting district in the country. They will have to pick the conservative candidates who are most likely to foster conservative values on at least one important subject, like Pro-Life; Pro-”Borders, Language, and Culture”; Pro “only babies of citizens can have “birthright citizenship”, and have no strong opinions against “Quorum” core beliefs.

    So that you could have, 100 Republicans; 20 Peace and Freedoms; 50 American Independents; 50 libertarians,20 Greens, etc. so that the Coalition and the real “Blue Dogs” would overwhelm the liberal idiots all the time, and no one could “Blame the Republicans”, nor would 2 or 3 RINOs sink the ship.

    Now, I don’t know where you would FIND as many as 20 P&F or Green party candadates in The United States that weren’t also TOO Liberal, but, you get what I mean, Pick the PERSON, not the PARTY, and have an amalgamation of votes that would have that candadate win, even if it took a run-off to do it!

    Right now, picking a minor party candadate is a wasted vote. It should not be!

    • Lewis Munn

      A minor party vote is NOT a wasted vote. Demos and Repubs started out small too, but met needs and had publicity.

      We need the minor parties to prosper and be there to keep the major’s honest! Why do the majors want to suppress the Minors, except for fear the Minor might come up with more good ideas than the major and take over?

      Minor parties that are not suppressed or ridiculed are what keeps politics more honest and responsive.

      Vive la Minor Parties.

  • ONTIME

    This election has been a warning shot to both parties, the, conservatives, independents and Tea Party have made it clear that if the RINO’s and the rest of the blue dogs cannot figure out that it is they we protest and their cronyistic way of undermining good law by collusion and co-opting the new electees, a third party will be formed and they both will have minor rolls in the governing of this nation. Real change is needed and it is that which we seek, the good Ol’Boys are going to go away.

    I am a registered Real Republican, RINO’s have infuriated me to the point where Independent will be where I go and if the Tea Party is in the forming of a third party then it may be I will go where conservatism is practiced and not compromised. I am at whitts end, I am telling the party square it away and stick to the platform or you can become a historical *asterisk in the footnotes of history.

  • Raggs

    I will say this much take it or leave it.

    The people of this country did not do enough in this previous election.

    The corruption in the white house remains, obama, pelosi and reid did not go away… the root of their evil is still sitting on our taxpaying dollars..

    We have not won this, in fact now we are the loser’s.. The GOP in my opinion will make a splash or two in the swamp but they will not have the waves to kick the communist out of the sludge..
    What I beleive has happened is simply that this communist obama will hasten his path to a state of total social progress. All the American people did was to stir the bee hive without killing the queen.
    The people of this country did not even scratch the scab off of our wound… In fact we caused it to be infected!!!!!

  • BrotherPatriot

    So well said…Mr. Wood…”this is a life long battle”. But indeed, we have taken a step back onto the proper path that America needs to be on. The American people have spoken and shown the iron core that still resides in the heart of this amazing nation.

    Here is the true key…in this article…

    “And here’s something else that is even more important: Every dollar that the Federal government spends — and folks, it spends a lot of them — must be authorized by an appropriations bill that originates in the House of Representatives.

    This means, pure and simple, that no matter what President Barak Obama wants, no matter what the Senate approves, and no matter what the present law says, the House can “just say no!” to spending any money on it.”

    ^^ This means we control the money…and that my brothers & sisters…is the greatest part of the equation. The money. From here we can strangle/defund the crap that has been set in motion. From here…we can build.

    It’s so very important that we keep tabs on what our newely elected do. Accountability is a must and an aware public is the difference.

    I agree with you, Mr. Wood. The wicked witch is stepping down. She has to and that is an awesome event to behold. Gives my heart hope that we really can make a difference. This is just the beginning of it…to unravel the damage that the “gankster style government” that Michele Bachmann mentions. (Very happy she retained her seat.) Unfortunately, I believe here in Washington State…Murray is most likely going to win the senate chair again. Darnit…though Rossi wasn’t my 1st choice…I did vote for him as a vote to Clint Didier would have split the vote in favor of Murray. So all of you who did just that…wrote in Clint Didier (who I honestly wish had won the Repub nomination)…that write in may have been the deciding factor on Dino Rossi’s loss. Food for thought. (Oh…at this time I don’t think it’s been declared that Rossi has loss…but I think it will result this way and if not then I’ll be pleasantly surprised. I really wish Rossi hadn’t have pushed again for this & given the torch to Clint Didier. I sincerely hope this isnt’ the last we have heard from Mr. Didier.

    It’s really, really, REALLY unfortunate that Reid didn’t get beat…but I’m going to celibrate the good here and just roll with the punches on the rest. Soooo…

    CONGRATULATIONS AMERICA! WHHOOOOOOOO…HOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :D

    God Bless Us All…!!!

  • Robert Berger

    If you think Nancy Pelosi is bad, Michelle Bachmann makes her look like Mary Poppins by comparison. This loathsome,bigoted woman is
    a disgrace to congress,and it makes me ashamed to be an American that such a despicable person has been elected to public office.
    Yet that imbecile Joseph Farah has said at World Nut Daily(my spelling) that he wants to see her as running mate to that inbred hillbilly dolt Jim De Mint as President in 2112. When I read this,I wanted to vomit! What has America come to? The thought of these two as President and Vice President makes me mess my pants !
    I’d sooner vote for a clam and an oyster in these offices.They’re no doubt much smarter.
    And if the Democrats put up a team of Bo the dog and a banana in 2116,I’d still vote democrat.

    • Karolyn

      I’m right behind you, Robert. Glad you mentioned DeMint. I live in SC and even though the dem who ran against him was an unknown with no job and charges hanging over his head, I voted for the dem. If enough black voters had come out, he would have won! Cannot stand Demint!!

        Yeah.. Kool-aid has been known to have those side effects…

        If Karolyn voted for the person who was on the Democrat Ticket folks you should never reply to any of her post. This proves that she needs help, in the worst way. I will not make any more post to her due to the statement she just made. Voting for a man like Alvin Green, who appears to be very slow, maybe I should say, mentally challenges. I think that was his name. Holy Moses, Andy.

    It just amazes me that everybody here has all the answers! Why don’t you all somehow get together and make an appointment to speak before congress? Then everything will be fixed!! So simple……..:-)

    • Laura Ayala

      If it were that simple, it would have been done. But anyone who disagrees with Reid would probably be arrested on some trumped up charge. Sometimes the answers are pretty straight forward. It is the political agenda that is killing this country. That is why we have to abide by the constitution of this country. It is really simple. Many of us on this opinion page have layed out the same plans for correcting what is going on in this country. However, we now have a government that thinks they have to tell people what to eat, where to go, how to go, when to go. Did you forget that Obama got on public television and asked Americans to REPORT their neighbors if they are verbally critisizing his plans? I would love to speak in front of congress, can you get me an appointment?

      • Karolyn

        If you were really serious, got a good backer and got signatures, you probably could. Speak to the congressman you voted for. I seriously doubt that anybody here would have the gumption to do it. I know I wouldn’t. I have a life to live, and it’s getting shorter every day.

    Anyway… I have to ask why the hell is the obama POS heading to India to find jobs for Americans?… Oh so you mean to tell me that after $2 trillion dollars that I help pay didn’t get anyone a job here in the US?… AH batcrap… $2 trillion dollars got us 1,000 government workers… Oh boy I’m thrilled!!!! Well I would mention all of the unions that heir obama is sleeping with but what is the point?

    Well… pelosi the royal joker is still in town.. Go figure…
    This woman is like a bad case of warts…
    No matter how hard you try to rid yourself of this fungus it keeps growing barrack…

      Raggs, Could it be because she couldn’t bring out the black vote. Warts do spread in certain part of the anatomy even the brain.

      • Raggs

        Indian…

        I hope you didn’t get the wrong idea from me…
        pelosi was at this time not up for a vote, she has been in the dog / hog pen for 4 years and she needs to go!
        I’m not certain why you brought up a black vote scenario, I did not put a spin on any issue with a racial invovlement…
        My point is… pelosi is a product of government / by the government and for the government regardless of her stance on anyother issue this is the most important one we need to keep an eye on… As I stated she is a wart that will not go away, and maybe prehaps the infection has spread to the brain… The infection has certainly spread throughout what we call congress not to mention and I beleive we will see more corruption on a federal judicial level..
        If you do not understand the concept you will not understand the end product… Race is not the issue unless it is used…

        The democrats have been playing that card for over 2 years now and frankly I think they need to be held by the neck for it.

    Don’t count on the new Rethuglican House, in its frenzied investigative paper blizzard, to indict the Bush Crime Family for war crimes, or take up the case against our multitude of Marine Corpse “heroes” raping and murdering schoolgirls, or indict Blackwater/Xe for what our own Naval investigators termed an absolute massacre of unarmed civilians.

    Mr. Berger: Vote Democrat, you are guaranteed that right…and that wrong…your minority rights are guaranteed, something that the damocrats, my spelling, seem to conveniently forgotten for the last two years. Minority rights with majority rule…better look that up, its a difficult concept for democrats to handle. I, with many of my brothers and sisters, in lonely and forgotten holes in the world, paid full price for your right to be a jerk, and stupid to boot. Thank God someone put a brake on Ms. Pelosi, and the lying, conniving, evil Chief Executive.

  • dahni

    All politicians need to understand that for most of the voters this was a statement than we need new leaders in DC. Neither the Career Politicians in Dem or Rep parties have been doing the job. Unless things change dramatically by 2012, we will be electing a lot more new ‘leaders’. In fact, the longer a politician has been in office the less competent he/she/it is likely to be in terms of leading in the direction I want to go.

    • Raggs

      dahni…

      Good point, but you look in the wrong spot to find a “leader”..
      Do you really need a leader of men by a man?

      In the first place… A man that needs a leadership by another man is lost.

      Second place… A man that depends on his leader of men depends on the leader…

      It’s called slavery…

  • Anthony

    A comment (or two) about my “off the cuff” knowledge about Political Committees in side Congress ….

    Back in the day … SC, this includes you … the powers that be found that no matter what, they were going to have to deal with Ronald Reagan as President. Since the days of LBJ, the habit had been, that whenever a precinct or region would send an opposing party member back to Congress, replacing the previous “friendly” .. well, they would just add another Seat to the Committee.

    Seems inane enough… no? Harmless whatever, right ?
    (no, I didn’t mean to spell inSane)

    This tactic worked well enough thru the LBJ, NIXON and FORD situations. They had LBJ in their back pocket over the JFK incident. Nixon, well they had that Watergate nonsense. FORD, was all about ‘healing the Country’ and he knew squat about what was really going on, so much so that he could really be dangerous. Which was why he was shooed away by his own Party – sides, Reagan was just simply more personable. That you cannot deny.

    Then, along comes Reagan .. and dagummit, who said Hollywood had the right to some say in Politics… especially in DC..? Who does he think he is ?? (Sorta like LBJ sneering at the back of JFK’s head cuz he was almost half the elder’s age)

    Well, as a last gasp tactical manuever – the Party in Power pulled a reverse when it came to Committees and Sub-Committees, etc., etc., and in the final days of 1980, they shrunk all Committees back to their original sizings as created by Congress – “according to the Congressional Rule” – even though previously, it was OKAY to bend that rule, since they did have a 75% majority.

    This meant that the DEMS had totalitarian rule prior to Reagan – and no one in the Country was ever actually informed of the fact – NO WILD WEB, remember? – and now that the OTHER Party was in the White House, they previous Party still held leverage over just abuot any Bill that might be pushed.

    Think of it like gerrymandering voting districts.

    THIS PARTICULAR TACTICAL MANUEVER is something that happens all the time in Congress … and IT IS how the DEMS controlled Congress and the Country for over 40 years straight.

    IT IS ALSO one of the many things about how our Country is run … that THE FED never wants us to be well informed about. We, the People, learning about congressional protocols and rules, etc., should be something that gets taught in school .. but is not, for a specific reason … and you already know what that is.

    Nowadays, I would figure there has to be some websites that actually discuss such things .. but I haven’t found any, as yet. And, no, I’m not talking about a DOTgov site … I mean a Site, much like this one.

    Mr. Livingston – you have any advice ? Chip, how about you ??

    • Raggs

      Anthony..

      I for one agree with you, the advent of the “web” does indeed spread information that none of us would ever see on T.V. and thats why obama wants a so-called “fairness doctrine”.. simply put it is a tool to control internet information to his likeminded cronies.
      obama is an obstruction to free speech…
      Well lets all face the facts here, he is a dictator… And I will argue that fact with anyone that wishes to be heard..

      I think that most people come to their own conclusion regardless of what information they have…

    If elections are being stolen (and I believe that attempts, at least, are being made to steal them), then correcting that should be an ongoing project of freedom-lovers. After all, there’s no point in fielding good candidates if the Powers that Be and their union shock troops simply arrange for their favorite bottom feeders to squeak through regardless of the actual vote.
    My first proposal is to eliminate computer voting. I make my living in the digital world, and I know just how easy it is to manipulate bits of information. Back to hardcopy ballots, with boxes checked manually and signed by the voter! Also, eliminate the absentee voting privilege for anybody living within a certain radius of a polling place (physical disabilities excepted). Absentee ballots are easy to “lose” or substitute, so only people who live to far away to vote in person should have that privilege.

  • Henry Ledbetter

    The victory on Tuesday was great but now the real work begins. Most of the government agencys in Washington are headed by and infiltrated by those that have the same Progressive phylosipy that the president adheres to. Since funding for these agencys must be approved by the house of representatives we must keep pressure on our representatives to hold them accountable and cut off all funding if need be. I have already asked our congressman to investigate the F.D.A. as they are blocking many treetments such as hyperbaric oxygen that could benefit millions. Out of fifty five ailments that could be treated effectively with HBOT and no side affects, only fourtten are reconized by the FDA. I really didn’t know the extent of their corruption until my wife was diagnosed with a crippling malady called RSD as a result of a knee replacement. We have found that ozone and oxygen is the most promisng and she seems to be responding to out of the box therepy’s but she still has a long way to go. Pray we have God’s wisdom in how to proceed and hopefully we will be able to bring attention to the problems and help millions of other in the process. Henry

      We probably have not seen the end yet of the effects of the high mercury content of the mandated swine flue vaccine. Or of the suppression of the knowledge that non-toxic Vitamin C both prevents and cures virus diseases, such as the fizzled Swine Flu.

      Mercury poisoning was the cause of the “madness” of hat makers a long time ago, yet now we and the UN mandate regular injections of these mercury-laden vaccines,

      I will probably always wonder why it became a requirement, but I wonder what it will do the the minds in the world, especially of frequent travelers.

    I KNOW what we voters were expressing by our votes but, folks, it AIN’t GONNA happen. Both major parties are controlled by the recipients of the bailouts, NOT by you and me. BTW, I voted against our incumbent congresscritter (he LOST) and I will probably be voting against his Republican successor in the election of 2012. I have voted for two winning presidential candidates beginning with the 1960 election and I have lived to regret both of those votes; one of them was a Democrat and the other was a Republican. There’s not a (copper-nickel sandwich Johnson LBJ slug) dime’s worth of difference between them.

    Just a thought. Considering the divisiveness within our Congress, how many of you think that this United States of America is going to be around for any appreciable period of time in the future.It was once said, and it should be believed, that a house divided against itself cannot stand. We shall make considerable demands upon our elected officials to approach their jobs with the objective thought that their energies must be directed toward our country as a whole. That’s a big order, but it shall be done, and the Tea Party will help do it.

  • James

    Our problem here is a basic misunderstanding of how our federal government was structured. It’s supposed to be a government, of, by and for the people. Representatives and Senators are supposed to enquire of the people they represent, what they deem to be of importance. That Legislative Branch then enacts appropriate law. And the Executive Branch then executes that law.
    What we have is just the opposite. Recently Rep. John Boehner was quoted as saying: “In our system of government, the President creates the agenda then submits that to Congress for their discussion.” No mention of the ‘people’ at all.

A lot of folks are starting to open their eyes now and that is why they wanted a Republican House, to block NObama from destroying the country. Most of the Dems are just as bad as they were helping him destroy our economy. I hope the Zombies (fired Congress Members)have to stand in line like a lot of other people who are looking for work.

    After reading a lot of the post on the forum I see we still have a lot of folks who are conservatives, and still have principles. This is great.

I believe in the free market concept and not Socialism or Communism which I feel that a few folks on this forum wants. We all need to accept our responsibility to get our government back on the right track again. Let’s hope 2012 brings that effect back into our system.

  • http://GOGGLE vaksal

    Great artical,CHIP,but i think the votes were tampered with in nevada,and sending the seiu to fix them was like putting iceing on the cake(nevadas election),besides there are more computer experts in nevada that are connected to the gaming industry there anyway,in that state next time federal voting marshals should be posted at each voting station to ensure that those machine that malfuntion,be seized and checked by neutral computer experts,but this time around i think we have to live with reid in office,but the republican tea party members nation wide should get this passed before the 2012 elections,when they take office to have those marshals posted at all voting stations nation wide,and as i said keep the seiu far away from those malfuntioning machines,so they can be checked,those marshals would be posted from all parties that are on the ballot in each state.to be stationed there until the elections are over and they can be ordinary people that would do this for a tax credit,example 40hrs= 9.00 an hour=that much off your state taxes.no cash passed except for those states could say the election was fairly overseen by the american people of all parties.but this is just a veiw point from a voter.

      Vaksal, I agree with you, but as long as the Dems are in charge you will never get this to happen. It seems like most politicians are not trustworthy anymore, and of course this group of people come from the main stream of our society. When you look at 5 people most likely 2 out of the 5 are not trustworthy.

        Wayne what you posted is very true about folks in general,because myself being an older american can remeber when the people we elected feared the voting population,but since the take over of this republics newspapers and general information outlets,everything has become so left wing and communist in nature that the very fabric of society has suffered from all this misinformation for generations,but this election i feel with all my being that the american people have woken up to the great evil that has caused this mess,and in turn i feel that this new generation will put its total power behind taking this republic back state by state,and with the help of us old generation americans will insure that it happens and all the leftwing neo-con communist are thrown out of office one by one,but to do this we must make sure those polling places are not centers of rigging the results,and who better than the average person that has the most to lose and that is every american no matter what race or calling have one thing in common and that is(THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS)made to protect every person rich or poor,and with that i have faith in this with all that i have seen in my lifetime,those of common unity always vanqish those who would steal their freedom,and it will be so always,look at human history,always history repeats it self,just the nature of all humans,just look at a year ago the masters of the universe in government were calling the tea party movement a bunch of ranting loonies,well thank god and heaven that americans still have the stuff to put these arrogant ivy leauge self serving jerks back in the places they came from and that is under the rocks they crawled out from under,and thats only the start as long as the rhinos dont make the tea party (YOUNG GUNS)mute,if they do,bye bye republican party,you will become the second party that double crossed the american voter,we the american voter are the only ones that can carry the day,because without or vote you are just an unemployed person,serve us and you might get our votes,serve this republic and we will honor you,but hear this loud and clear this is the last chance for you rhinos to save america and all you love in your lives,the point is secure this republics voting places now.anyone convicted of tampering with our votes or our elected officals should be charged with treason and if found guilty shall be hung upon conviction period,and prison is out of the question.our voters are that sacred.

        • Wayne

          Good post, vaksal. I am like you. I am an older American too. We have been around and enjoyed the good times in our early years. Now that most of the television stations, newspapers, and others have been highjacked by the liberal media, they feed these younger folks this crap, and they can’t look back far enough in their lives to see the difference between now and the way it used to be. We don’t have enough of the older generation to help the younger folks to see the difference between now and back then. It is a shame for this to happen. Back when I was a young man growing up a person did not even need to lock their doors at night. Would you go to bed tonight without locking your doors? Wouldn’t it be nicer to live back in an era of time when you did not have to. Yes! I’ll take the old fashioned way when folks could be trusted. We need to get back to basic principles, honesty and respect for each other. At least the folks who are believers in God will not intentionally hurt anyone. We definately need to get back to those principles. I don’t believe the folks who intentionally rape and kill small children, rob people, and do all those other nasty things to another human believes in God. Believing is what keeps people from doing all those horrible things. This is my believe that I will take to the grave with me.

  • chuck b

    it’s quite obvious harry reid’s election was fixed. the first thing he said after the election, “the demos need to push through a bill to get the illegals green cards and on their way to legalization”.
    this country needs to repair the voting system, i don’t think everyone should be allowed to vote. people while on welfare should not be eligible. people who cannot speak english should not vote and no illegal should be voting. “most of all “dead democrats” shouldn’t have the right” i know this eliminates a lot of the democratic votes, but it helps the country.
    it may take a minor revolution to get things back to the constitution. we have elitist politicians in both parties that should be removed, of course this would eliminate half the congress and senate. the elections get more fraudulent each cycle, so the complete system should be revamped. everyone who votes should be a certified citizen!
    we should conside annexing california, oregon and washington to mexico, just think of the welfare expense we would save and the reduction in state and federal workers. i’m thinking of moving anyway.

  • da norseman

    While voters in cash-strapped states like California decided to stay “as is”, voters in most states decided on change from the corruption seen in Washington. Most importantly, Pelosi, thank God, will have to step down as House Speaker and be replaced by John Boehner who will assume that role once the 112th Congress takes control. The nationwide results were certainly a giant step for Republicans who have gained over sixty seats in the House and regain control as the majority.

    California voters, as expected, have given victory to freeloaders, losers and illegal immigrants by bringing back Moonbeam to Sacramento and by keeping Boxer in the Senate (both career politicians with no business experience). In other words they’ve voted to keep the “Californication” going as the state becomes bluer and bluer! The majority of voters in the state prefer government rather than bringing back private business, which Moonbeam had driven out back in the 1970s and early 1980s, and had put California into despair. Again, the California Socialist Republic will stay on the path toward bankruptcy and its own destruction. I would not support a bailout of this state once it is bankrupt since I’m moving out of here anyway along with many prominent people and businesses who will relocate to other states once Mass Exodus II commences. Moonbeam would be the one to blame!!!

    Also, this is also a victory for deathrow inmates, which, I know, Moonbeam will be searching for a new California Chief Justice that will be very much like that of the late Rose Bird who was known for her too-soft-on-crime stance and commuting death sentences. Hence, there will be no executions under Moonbeam’s watch!!!

    A new hope has emerged throughout the nation. For California there is no hope.

      The death sentence is neither a deterrant nor punishment. Death is freedom from the imprisonment of the body. Prolonging Life in prison is the harsher sentence.

          Joe H — I have no sympathy for the people that are in prison–I am hard-nose–they CHOSE to walk down the path of criminal behavior. I am a firm believer in the fact a person has choices in life. They either choose to live a good decent life or they lead a life of crime. If they end up in prison, they should not receive an “easy” life. This discussion brings to mind the Ten Commandments.
          I realize there may be people in prison that are wrongfully sentenced. Our judicial system/lawyers/prosecutors better get on the ball and do their jobs correctly, instead of the old “who wins” game.
          Numerous prisoners are now becoming muslims. There are a lot of issues regarding criminal life/behavior.

          • Wayne

            Good for you Claire. I feel the same way. Those criminals who want to steal another persons property, kill, rape, multilate others, and do all those others terrible things should be put away permanently to never see daylight again. All murders, if there are no doubt of innocence, should be put to sleep. I agree we need to put God back into our lives. If people do not believe in God, they have that right, but they should at least believe in something that keeps them from doing all those evil things that they do toward other people. You and I are from the old school where we believed in, and respected ourselves. We have to repect ourselves before we can respect others.

        Prolonging life in prison is harsher? Free hospitalization, workout areas, tv, good meals, dental care, counseling/rehabilitation, a place to sleep, and “a roof” over their heads. all paid for by the taxpayer.
        To me, if a person commits a crime, then they should not receive the “perks.” If it was made harsher for them, then perhaps they would think twice about committing crime and going back to prison.

        And in conclusion, a life sentence is more like rewarding the inmate rather than to punish him. If we want our prisons to look harsh, it’s best to take away all these amenities and make all penitentiaries look more like that of a rundown Russian gulag…now THAT’S harsh!!!

    Pelosi is a worthless, but very expensive whore. However, her use of a C5 airplane to go to and from, (weekly) D C to the land of fruits and nuts is nothing compared to the illegal alien with big ears, who take 3000 of his closest friends on a taxpayer financed vacation half way around the world. Imagine, one billion bucks to get the scumbag away from the capitol. I would say, that if he will not ever come back, we should send him and mooch another billion. That would be money well spent!!!

    How on earth did I get in with you people–morons of America unite. I am a loving, jolly, happy liberal with a college education, raised 3 kids, owned and ran my own restaurant for 23 years. I have no religion because I think they mostly scare and/ or control people although some do good works but they usually want something special for it.

    Please pay attention……..the banks are cheating us and the banker must be jailed.

    Republicans are either very self-centered and greedy; or they are very easily manipulated, not too bright and also easily frightened. Anger will manifest when people are afraid. Be afraid,be very afraid——–

    • Jim

      Another smarmy self proclaimed elitist know it all. An interesting fact, 55% of those registered voted last Tuesday. More importantly, 100% of the registered dead voted Democrat. So I don’t blame you for being a liberal fool because at least your vote will be cast forever. Thank whatever new=aged God you Bray to, that you followers of the Beast save us from our unwashed and unenlightened selves. Count not the numbers of Tea Partiers whom you detest so dilligently. Fear those who choose to stay home and cling to their God and clean their long guns…

    • Carol

      I come from a Republican family. Parents both UC Berkeley graduates, Mother taught math until she was forced to retire at 65. We are not ignorant. We have watched this country go down the tube and tried what we could to keep our freedom. I am happy to a point with the election, but we still have Boxer and now Brown—-again. Not much hope for California, but maybe us seniors will now get our cost of living raise since Pelosi can no longer waste the funds on free rides.
      Makes me wonder if this sally is my cousing who was raised extremely liberal by parents who allowed their children to call them by name instead of Mom and Dad.
      Also, the only topic I see here is your own ignorance.

    • http://GOGGLE vaksal

      WELL sally,since i guess i am one of those morons that you have described,guess what do you honestly think that anyone has to put up with the college educated leftwing liberal thugs turning this republic into a modern day communist state,and even though is respect you having a bussines,big deal,i worked hard all my life and have owned two homes in my life,nice ones,and raised two childern on my own(without government help thank god and took the time (many years)to learn two foreign languages and am the holder of two american and international patents,and guess what?i shovel horse muffins on the ranch,and that i take more pride in,Why? for i learned that the working folks of this nation made this nation great,while the self serving leftwing liberals in power people like you,the ivy leauge bunch,the masters of the universe,with all the answers,guess what were the biggest crooks ever.WHY? wallstreet,the banksters,the bailouts,and my big time choice (NAFTA)because the educated bunch knew that america would become filthy rich,well look around your bunch caused this mess oh mighty one (from the educated elites)so you claim,when i was younger i had a horse that had more brains than the crooks that caused this collaspse,WHY? at least he would get out of the rain,the point is you go and insult every person that was not so lucky as your self in life,while i think of my countryman,( in great esteem),but on the otherhand people like you can never be trusted for any counsel,for your arrogance would serve noone but you self,and notice i didnt call you stupid or a moron,you buffon!

      • Karolyn

        Vaksal and the others who responded to Sally – This is why this country will never come together except in disaster. You holier-than-thou self-proclaimed patriots simply cannot allow for any answers other than those that come out of your own (and your leaders’ mouths). You give no credence to absolutely ANYTHING other than your own viewpoints. You do not respect others views of ANYTHING, let alone how this country “should” be run. Who made you gods? Who made you judges and juries? God is the only one to judge. This country gives us the freedom to believe what we want. According to some of you, we can believe what we want, but our individual beliefs are judged and scorned by you. You are just a pack of hypocritical know-it-alls. You believe in what this country stands for only when it suits your own interpretation. There are a few of you who are able to have intelligent discourse with those with opposing views; however, you are in the minority on this site. Your collective ego defies description!

        • Jim

          Sorry, but did I just here you say, “Polly Want a Cracker”?

        • http://GOGGLE vaksal

          KAROLYN,first noone of any party speaks for me,not any dumocrat or rhino in office,for they have been the reason this nation has been taken to the state of affairs it is in,and as far as know it alls,that is so far off the mark,i am like any person seeing all that they loved being stolen by those who have been making a living off the american working peoples plates,to enrich themselfs,and as americans it is everyones right to voice their feeling,so personally i voted for those who i felt were of that same feeling,and just to set the record straight,i worked all my life,and i do mean really hard,and educated myself,which enabled me to do some of the small things that free people,even you to do(AND THAT IS THE RIGHT OF FREE CHOICE,TO CHOOSE MY OWN FATE IN THIS SHORT LIFE)and if believeing in GOD and country,and THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS IS WRONG,THEN ALL I CAN SAY IS WE DONT AGREE,and in closing i worked all my life and never asked for a free ride ever and have always had the moral upbringing to always be thankful for any good recieved in this life,but sadly their are those who think that they are owed a free ride,then in return flip off everyone that has helped them,by stealing their rights to speak freely,and labeling them as they wish to justify the very fact that they are stealing them blind of their basic liberties,and that is to protest that robbery.and this election proves that point correctly,and if 2012 rolls around and nothing changes,the american people will throw out all its traitous government employees,no matter what party,the american people are fed up with this communist agenda,look around karolyn,everyone is suffering because of those who caused this crime,i know it wasnt me nor was it you,for we are all the victims of these lawless fools,that have gone on too long pushing lawless agendas for total control over everyones liberties.and i do believe in GOD as yourself and in charity,but please dont tell me that i am some god,that is a total fabrication at best and not honorable on your behalf,with this lets keep up the right to speak what we think,for this isnt a communist state yet,THANK GOD.

    sally ,,,,,You’ve just described the democrats but forgot a few ingredients and you’re the prime example, ( “I’m a happy liberal with a college education” ),most of us common folks know that book smart doesn’t equal common sense.
    Besides self-centered, greedy and easily manipulated we can grant the following to the liberals qualifications, dishonest,swindelers,opportunists,very selfish and mostly hateful against people with different opinion, so don’t toot your horn i don’t want no part of this type of behavior…………..

      Mick – You said liberals are “mostly hateful against people with different opinion”. OMG, you can’t say that conservatives are not the same given this venue as an example. Take a look at the vitriol coming out of “plain foks’” mouths at the few liberals who DARE to challenge your views!

  • Wayne

    Hey! did you all hear that since the House of Representatives will be mostly Republicans after the first of the year, that Charlie (Dingbat) Rangell wants his hearing on the charges he is facing held right away. I just wonder if the reason could be that he wants it held before the first of the year, for a reason. I’ll let you all answer this one. Ha.

    concerning the illegals who claim they want their part of america back, i read that their was no mexico at the time, until well after the spaniards and american indians interbreeded, thus the mexican population was born.

  • EaglesFlight

    Whooya for Conservative House of Representatives!! Americans when united do have CLOUT!! Yes, we all know that somewhere (Nevada? Mass?) there was voter fraud…again. Losers can’t seem to lose gracefully, but have to show their true sides of nastiness! But the bigger issue here is ALL the illegals who have managed to get IDs so they can vote “ILLEGALLY” in a U.S. election. As one of the bloggers said, “Isn’t there a list of voters?” If a person’s name is not on that list, THEY DO NOT GET TO VOTE — NO EXCEPTIONS!! Ballot stuffing is an old scam, but an efficient one…they’ve just figured out a new way to do it. Once the king of fraud obama is removed from his throne, and the New Congress begins January 2011, things are going to change. Illegals, Muslims, obama, healthcare, etc. — Americans are DONE with you! 2011 will show just “How Done” we are!!!

    Never mind the gloom, doom & pessimism. We won, and we’ve got a right to celebrate. Alan West won his House seat in a landslide victory. The black conservatives in this part of Florida thought of him as “our” Tea Party Candidate. We poured a lot of money into his campaign and put in a lot of get-out-the-vote legwork. And it paid off big time, proving once again that the American electoral system usually works the way the Founders intended it to. Now he’d better live up to his end of the bargain, work with the other new conservatives in the House to repair the damage done by Pelosi and her socialists minions. And while they’re at it, they need to light a fire under all those tired old RINO Republicans (the country-club set) who have been on Capital Hill much too long and have outlived their usefulness. Some people believe that the Tea Party Movement should form a kind of junior partnership with the Republicans. I believe that a hostile takeover is more in order. And in 2012, hopefully, we can replace some of those dinosaurs with more brilliant young conservatives.

  • Christian Constitutionalist

    A bunch of rats who have never laid eyes on the Constitution have pumped up the fear of ordinary Americans and gotten themselves voted into office on the pretense of “patriotism”. We are really into it now. The inheritors of Hitlers ideology and demagoguery now call themselves “Tea Party patriots” and are poised to bring our blessed US of A to the brink of ruin and dictatorship.

    Dont believe their lies. Theyve got our balls. Dont let them take our liberty. The real wicked witch of the West is Sarah Palin.

  • http://N/A H Joyce

    I am with you Chip Wood, on the feeling about Pelosi. I no longer live in CA (lived in So. CA for 41 years) but when I talk to friends and family that still live in CA, no one likes her. Now just think about how much money that can be saved when she has to give up her private airplane (at tax payers expense) to fly her back and forth between D.C. and northern CA all the time. That alone made me actually have feelings of HATE for this thing. I prayed before the election and I will continue to pray for people like her to be our of our lives.

    Or that nut job Barney Frank with his nut job agendas either. Like a breath of fresh air!
    As for old Harry, I am wondering how many illegal aliens voted in the Nevada election, most likely we will never know.
    All three of them would push their own Mothers under a bus for a dollar, so would Obama.
    Nothing worse in the world than a liar, thief, cheat! If you are a sellout for a dollar then you fit into all three categories.

    Deborah/Michigan–Your comment made me think–The secret to being less wrinkled as a person ages is to use Oil of Olay and the eye stuff they have now is great. I have used Oil of Olay every day for 40+ years. It is wonderful. Botox? Plastic surgery? Not for me, I am not on an ego trip. Besides, who wants to get hacked on? The pain of it all is not worth it. Crows feet–a sign that a person smiles a lot or they are squinting–check you eyes annually and wear sunglasses. I would rather see a person with laugh lines instead of stretched-out skin. Geez, I should be a spokesperson for Oil of Olay. And Chanel #5–the best perfume ever. I have used it for 40+ years also. Sorry, got off the subject. LOL

  • Viktor Leben

    The election results caused much hope among most of the people here commenting on this site ! Let me indicate tersely my viewpoint … I’m not a conservative ! I’m also not a liberal ! SO Please spare me the stereotypical heckling (very good original insults are permitted)….

    The bottom line is the Republicans did not capture total control of the Senate (?) Correct me if I’m wrong. Looking at the comments this is a result of “voter fraud” – specifically hacked voting machines and non citizens voting illegally ….

    CHECKMATE …. you conservatives have lost ….

    Now their are rumblings of Republicans wanting war with Iran ? Think about it for awhile….

    Some Republicans will “leave the party” if it isn’t conservative enough ? I highly doubt it – but if they leave where will they go ? The Libertarians and Constitution Party are not capable of running effective national elections plus their constituency may not endorse these rebel Republicans. Do candidates without a party win elections ?

    If you wanted a conservative revolution you needed to gain both the House and the Senate. It’s urgent that the voter fraud be investigated.

    I’m pessimistic that the voter fraud won’t be corrected ….

    CHECKMATE. You lose.

    • Denniso

      Victor…I’m not sure what you are if you claim not to be either conservative or liberal. Does that just mean that you are in the middle politically or that you have no hard views?

      You’re right that the Refubs don’t have the revolution they dreamed of…one house of Congress does not a revolution make. Mostly the election can be explained away by the poor turnout of the youth vote. They were energized in ’08 and this time their numbers fell by 1/2.
      The other explanation for the results is that the Refubs spent the entire last 2 yrs w/ only one strategy in mind, destroy Obama and the Dems w/ lies,smears,trash,rather than working to save the economy as the Dems were doing. The plan worked to some degree,naturally,since all their energy and time was spent on attacking the Dems and the Dems didn’t respond well enough in the spin battle for the minds of the voters.

      • Viktor Leben

        Denniso,

        Thanks for the reply ! We sure are turning the pages of History. I hope God let’s me hang out for a long time, things are getting interesting !

  • Harvey

    The Repubs won the house for two reasons. 1. We, were unable to get the young people to get excited about politics. That is our fault. 2. The Supreme Court decided that campaigns could be financed by anyone with lots of money and the people were not allowed to know where the money came from. So these corps with lots of money financed the lies for the Repubs. The income gap between middle class people like myself, and the leaders of these corps has grown exponentially over the last 50 years and they will do anything in their power to keep it going in that direction. Like lie, cheat, steal, elect Repubs.

    The last time the Repubs took control of the house this way, they spent much of our country’s money and resources and time trying to convict the President of getting a blow-job.

    Fortunately for America, this is just a temporary delay. The Repubs will do what they always do, nothing, and the people will wake up again and give control back those those with whom it belongs. the people.

    • vicki

      The self delusion of apparent liberals is amazing.

      The Supreme Court simply decided that YOU did not have the right to force some group to say where they got their private financing from. You are allowed to know but you have to ask thru the appropriate channels.
      http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Justice/2010/0121/Supreme-Court-Campaign-finance-limits-violate-free-speech

      These corps are groups of people working together. Stop whining and group together with your like minded folk. That some folk are rich and some poor does not mean that they give up their right to an opinion nor their right to share it with others who will listen. You don’t have to listen. And with the advent of the internet and social networking in particular the supposed MSM stranglehold on the press is dead. EVERYONE can have their very own press.

      Your pathetic attempt to associate electing your opponents with lying, cheating and stealing looks a lot like projection when we see the activities of unions.

      The attempt to impeach Bill Clinton was not his choice of sex partners. That is a matter between him, Hillery and their Creator.
      It was his blatant lying about it to his employer that got him impeached.

      And why do you presume that Democrats running both Congress and the Presidency is control by the people?

      • Denniso

        Vickie thinks that corporations are just groups of people. A corporation is a legal entity that has many of the rights of a person yet is not a person. There are corporate officers,a board of directors and share holders. Does vickie think that all the shareholders are asked if they want to donate money to a particular politician? No, the board and the ceo will spread the corporations money out to whomever they choose.

        • Vicki

          If I removed all of the people the corp would still exist but it would be in a permanent coma. Fat lot of good that will do. A corp is a group of people. The shareholders DO get a say. Maybe more than a union member in fact. They get to vote in or out whomever they want to represent them. They get to join and leave the corp at will.

          • Denniso

            NO, a corporation is not a group of people. The people serve the corporate entity. If you think that the thousands of shareholders of a company actually control much of anything, then you’re dreaming. The CEO and board do the controlling.

          • vicki

            Kinda reminds me of something. Oh right. All those Democrats on the board of directors (Congress) and the CEO (Obama). You mean like that?

  • Palin12

    What’s the difference between California and the Titanic? The passengers aboard the Titanic did not vote to hit an iceberg. What the heck do Californians see in Brown and Boxer? More taxes and more benefits for illegal aliens, and a free pass for death row inmates.

  • Helen

    Benjamin Franklin was so right. Once you start paying politicians you ruin the system. When you aren’t getting paid for it, (or flying in posh jets and serving top of the line liquor by the case to your family and friends you brought along on the taxpayer paid for flight), you tend to SERVE THE PEOPLE because you have a passion to, for the RIGHT REASONS. If we can’t go back and stop paying politicians, the next best thing taxpayers and voters can do is to limit EVERYONE to one shot at it. Never vote the same person back into office. Perhaps they will begin to get the message they only have one chance to get it right, and then they are done. No more special interests courting them for years. No more listening to endless weeks of how bad the other candidate has been. They will have to start focusing on what are they going to do for our country, and how they intend to do it. Ah, how wonderful it would be to see new faces, fresh, and passionate about what is best for our country. And, if when they are in session, the people feed them what the people can afford to eat, instead of lavish meals the politicians can have some Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches and a glass of milk, those sessions should move right along and THE PEOPLE would see some results out of those elected to SERVE THE PEOPLE. Get the idea…? May THE PEOPLE keep speaking up and holding our elected accountable.

    I understand the President said he will just by pass and make it an executive order. Does anyone know if they can stop his executive orders? Bush passed that one and Obama is using it. Can that law be changed where he can no longer just do as he pleases and pass the bills he wants passed?

    gunner689;Your source must have been Fox news.The one that reported Obama’s trip cost 200million dollars a day when they missed by 197 million in that it only cost 3 million a day.They also used up 450 rooms at the taj majal when it is not even a hotel except for the one in Atlantic City.Also the claim of 45 warships in escort.They must be pretty fast to keep up with Air Force One.And there are people that take Fox news serious.LMAO
