Will Obama Nationalize U.S. Pensions?

February 18, 2010 by  

Will Obama Nationalize U.S. Pensions?

Will President Barack Obama nationalize United States pensions? That was the serious question I proposed one year ago in my blog—and it’s time to ask that question again.

Why now? Because President Obama has proposed what one of our experts sees as the "first step in stealth nationalization and forced investment of our retirement benefits."

The bad news comes as part of a tax package said to be aimed at middle-income Americans that was revealed in Obama’s State of the Union speech, as reported by Business Week magazine.

Obama’s stealth proposal is billed by him as an "effort to increase retirement savings by requiring all businesses to offer automatic IRA accounts,” but it drew immediate opposition from U.S. small business associations. Obama claims the plan would let employees automatically enroll in direct-deposit retirement accounts and expand matching tax credits.

Dangerous First Step to Nationalization

But Larry C. Grossman, CFP, CIMA, managing director of Sovereign International Pension Services (no relation to Sovereign Society) and a member of our Sovereign Society Council of Experts, sees the Obama idea as a dangerous move.

Says Grossman, "If you read it closely you will see the heart of the proposal is the requirement to keep 10 percent of the funds in U.S. Treasuries. At the stroke of a pen the president has found a way to bolster the declining demand for Treasuries. I believe forcing retirement plans into U.S. government control is the next step."

This alarm was echoed by Ron Holland, editor of the Inner Circle Intelligence Report published by BFI Consulting AG, a Swiss financial advisory firm, and a long-time member of the Sovereign Society Council of Experts.

Says Holland, "I think the mandatory IRAs just proposed by Obama is the first step in stealth nationalization and forced investment of our retirement benefits to support the U.S. Treasury debt market."

Should you be worried about this latest radical Obama move?

There is an estimated $15 trillion worth of private retirement plans in the United States; $4 trillion in IRAs alone; this constitutes 35 percent of all private assets in America. That is what the Obama government is eyeing to help plug the multi-trillion dollar deficit in his big spending budget.

You could call this move Obama’s attempt to "pull an Argentina."

What’s “An Argentina?”

In October 2008, Argentine President Cristina Kirchner—a peronista—confiscated US$30 billion worth in that country’s 10 privately managed pension funds. This was presented as an emergency measure to meet her faltering government’s financing costs. The Argentine congress went along with this radical property grab of individual retirement accounts, 401Ks and the like.

Could this happen in America?

Grossman’s opinion, "There have been several different academic papers published which have given rise to rumors. At least one congressional hearing on nationalizing pensions has been held. It is difficult to decide in what form it would take if something like this occurred in the U.S. Many believe that if indeed this is approaching, the best way to protect your assets is to place your retirement funds offshore now."

Holland says, "I believe we must fight this proposal and similar plans or else the private retirement system and our retirement wealth will be history in a few short years." Ron has produced a special report on this radical grab entitled, The Obama Retirement Trap Has Started!

Act Now

In my opinion, adopting such a retirement confiscation policy would be another major blow to Americans’ confidence and to any chance of economic recovery. It would further devalue the dollar and it would destroy what little remains of the credibility of Obama and his socialist government.

Folks, I served in the U.S. Congress when Democrats were overwhelmingly in control. I’ve seen what happens when the Republicans are in charge, as well. Meaning simply, anything can happen—so hold on to your wallet… and your retirement account!

    This is a timely article. Every Obummer supporter who claims to have a conscience must read it. Obummer’s arrogance knows no bounds, and he will stop at nothing to please his masters.
    In a bastardized version of JFK’s words, Obummer thinks the American people must ‘ask not how we can remain free. We must ask why we are not a nation of slaves.’
    Put nothing past him. He showed his true colors long before he went to Washington. He is the epitome of a deluded, useful idiot, and his mission is to destroy America.

    • JeffH

      s c, you have hit the nail on the head again. Don’t trust the words of this scumbag “prez.”, his mission is very clear, destroy America’s “reighn supreme” at all costs.

    • http://victorbarney@embarqmail.com Victor L Barney

      As Jeff said, you hit the nail on the head! One thing is certain though, obama will do just that, probably by Executive Order! This man will have to be impeached in January of 2010 to save this country from total destruction and reverse the road to hell that he is putting us on with him to follow!

    • Robert

      I think if Washington went along with this grand larceny conspiracy, it would be the final straw that broke the average Americans back. My immediate thoughts is that this would be the definite trigger that spurs a nationwide revolution. I wouldn’t want to be an unarmed politician if this happens.

      • SiliconDoc

        They’ve got a plan for that. Crashing a plane into an Austin IRS building took how mayn personal slaps in the face where the guy who did it had his retirement savings sucked dry and the govey IRS reaming and re-reaming him ? I believe it was 4 or 5 total retirement savings smackdowns the guy went through. (I read the linked post from his company’s website).
        So anyway, it appears the general pain level is quite high. You can be certain they will roll out their secretive test polls and roundtable query groups to test exactly what percentage (10% at first like the article points out ?) they can start with, AND THEN NOTCH IT UP TO – 20%, 30%, 50% – whatever…
        Yes, they will have their focus groups all done before the law proposal even hits…
        It seems to me they have nothing to fear at all – they have pumped into society the tree hugging mentality for so long – the media acts horrified by their selective reportings of violence each and every time, as if it’s always unprecedented, and the angle and tone they use is always severe against the “violent one” unless is it a government backed enforcer, and pumped into the public skulls is the danger around every corner…
        So they have their mass of mind numbed sheeple right where they want them – they pile out of San Deigo by the half million with a few wind fires that don’t even singe 1 of 200 homes – the whole place bugging out by government order – and just TRY saying how ridiculous that was– boy was I attacked – “you must get out of the way for the “experts” to come on and save the place!! ?? !! !! ”

        No, they have no worries, the sheeple are fat, fearful, and most of all, have screaming abhorrence to violence 24/7/365 – even the men have been NEUTERED for a few decades.

        I suppose there could be the converted psychosocial lib theory (sexual repression) that all the “suppressed violence / tree hugger indoctrination ” could come out in an unwound spring the size of a nuclear explosion…
        Ok, maybe I’m wrong… LOL

    • Warrior

      Listen, if you can’t get your hands on the $2.5 tril of healthcare dollars floating around the economy then shortfalls have to made up from elsewhere. The Beast needs to be fed (no pun intended. So, stimulis one took care of all the trough feeders for a while. Stimulis II er, “Jobs Bill” will take care of them for another year however, if you people don’t start buying crap and increase our tax receipts, we may have to have Stim III; IV; V until you understand our needs.

  • Norma

    You are so right SC ,I’m wondering when Americans everywhere will wake up,or will it be too late for America?We have had our heads in the sand too long.Can’t everyone see*THE MAN UPSTAIRS IS ANGRY? How are we going to fight this latest siege on middle class America,or all America for that matter?

  • http://donthaveone Beberoni

    Just what we need, the government running our pensions. That way, when I get to retirement age, it can all be pissed away like they did the thousands of dollars of social security money I dumped in there along the way. This way, they can take and give more to illegal aliens and those who will vote for them later. Unbelievable.

    • David

      Pull it out, pay the penalty and buy a small farm. If this happens, it will be the first shot across the bow and as things are shaking out; we will have to take care of ourselves….all this stimulus is simply pushing out the inevitable correction and making it worse.

      • Dave Decker

        Did that 8+ yrs ago after 9-11! Been ‘shooting over the bow’ ever since, where IS everybody else ? (Best ‘move’ I’ve ever made…)

        • denniso

          This article is just more fear and hatemongering from the rightwing,w/ No substantiation or facts,designed to stir up and scare the peasants(you people) for political gain….and wasn’t it Cheny/Shrub who tried to privatise social security not long before the market collapsed,a collapse that would have decimated retirements further for tens of millions of Americans???? This paranoia and fearmongering is getting more absurd every day. Take a walk…

          • THomNJ

            No denniso – they didn’t try to privatize social security – they tried to let Americans keep and manage their own money – meaning to keep it out of the hands of Congress – even a lefty ought to be okay with that.

          • DaveH

            Do you think anybody on this board listens to you Denniso?

          • Bob M.

            First off denniso. A typical left winger who has only one statement to make “IT WAS BUSHES FAULT WA WA WA”. You sound just like the Kenyan idiot you dimwits put into the oval office. If you cannot see that Oblammy is not the worst thing EVER to happen to this country then you are a complete MORON.
            BTW Bush never tried to take money from SS, he wanted to allow us to take a percentage of our retirement and do AS WE WISHED WITH WHAT A CRAZY IDEA!!!!!! let the person the money belongs to decide what to do with it instead of the Obamas, Franks, Dodds, Pelosis, and the rest of those idiots in Washington deal with it.

          • Carol B

            THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Finally someone who is not stupid.

          • David

            Why Denniso, us peasants aren’t scared. The real problem will come when your sheeple wake up…you know the ones who’s benefits continue to get paid by the stimulus money? Tarp wasn’t enough to shore things up. Now we have to hand out money to every welfare program/gov/union program out there to keep them on life support. What will these incapable needy sheeple do when the money is gone?

          • Matt

            Social security has been decimated. Your arguement is a lame one because SS is not sustainable. It is a pyramid scheme in the making. First ones in get a payout. Last ones in get screwed out of all the money they put into the socialist system.

            Tell me why a baby not even born today should be responsible to take care of you when you have had your whole life to get it together? If you are a loser in life, guess what? Its not our fault… its yours.

            All those in favor of these confiscating socialist programs should have all of their money and property confiscated and then divied up so they can actually live up to their beliefs.

          • JeffH

            denisso, “This article is just more fear and hatemongering from the rightwing,w/ No substantiation or facts,designed to stir up and scare the peasants(you people) for political gain”

            Like Obama, you think of us as peasants? I guess you consider yourself above “us peasants”. Not bad, coming from a member of the flock that feeds at the trough!
            The only fear and hatemongering is in you pitiful little pea of a brain. Don’t be fearful, we don’t bite!

            You really should try a new approach to all of this because, like your hero Obama, it just doesn’t hold water anymore. Your ship is sinking fast, admit it.

          • bbstacker

            Check your six, dude. Pelosi proposed this as well as Ghilarducci.

            You go on believing whatever kook-aid induced lies you want, but first and foremost, when has anyone anywhere ever, EVER, spent their way out of debt? Tick Tock…

          • denniso

            JeffH, just to be clear,we’re all peasants…the ones who aren’t are the fatcat bankers,financial corps ceo’s and the super wealthy in general, the people who have real power and huge financial clout…not the working people. I’m a working person.

          • PoFolks

            Quit the MAObama Kool-aid – it is killing off the few remaining brain cells that are active.

            obaMAO is a walking, teleprompter reading disaster. He is wrong on everything he does. This Marxist dog is the ultimate anti-American and needs to be brought down. This has already begun and will expand exponentially on November 2, 2010 and extend through 2012 when we can remove all the vermin infesting Congress and the Awful/Offal/Oaf-full Office.

          • Norman

            Really what part of taking your money and running did you not understand? I have money in a 401K and asked the manager about this very thing June of last year HIS answer was They “the Government” are going to do anything to fund THERE Agenda.

          • denniso

            And you believe everything a money manager tells you? I rest my case…

          • BOE

            You also must not have a retirement fund to worry about. You are most likely hoping to get some of our hard earned savings because you either didn`t save or didn`t work. Which is it?

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            I agree Denniso,

            Your paranoia and fearmongering is absurd. Why not just give it a rest? Your bloodpressure would probably drop at least 40 points.

            Denniso,

            I feel very sorry for you. It must be a terrible burden to pack around all that hate and jealousy.

            Like you, I’m a working person too. Unlike you, I’m not jealous of others who have more money and more toys that I have.

            Just wondering, do you own your own business and hire others….or do you work for someone else who hired you? Hmmmmmm…just a thought.

            Fed Up Gal

          • denniso

            Just to reiterate, I have been self employed for all but one yr of my adult life,in other words, created my own work and income,unlike 99% of the rightwinger ranters here. You,like most rightwingers, make the mistake in assuming that because I care about the poor and disenfranchised when we have fatcats,like insurance ceo’s, making tens of millions a yr,that then I must be one of the lower class. Wrong!! You people typically assume that because most of you are selfish and don’t think outside of your little life..so if you’re doing well,it doesn’t matter that we have 50 million or so poor at the same time we have extreme and even obscene wealth in this country. You can’t even figure out that the huge gap in wealth affects all of you in ways that you’re blind to. Crime,taxes,healthcare,education….
            Just so you know, I own my business, a home, a separate piece of land, 3 vehicles and a nice retirement nest egg, all from the fruit of my own brain and 2 hands.
            As far as ‘feeling sorry’ for people…I feel sorry for most of the lamebrains on this site who are so filled w/ hate and fear that all they can do is spout hate at their president and others who think differently from them.

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Denniso,

            Well, I see you’re still raging with anger and hateful emotions. Maybe you should give today’s article by Dr Wiley a read before bedtime; I really feel for you… taking such bitterness to bed with you….really….I do.

            Seems you are making the very mistakes you consistently accuse those you refer to as “rightwingers” of making. I’ve said THIS before, but will say again….you and others who think like you (includes the current administration and most of the rest in Washington) believe you are somehow justified in stealing money from others. Sorry Denniso, the only difference between you and the other thieves in Washington is….the Washington thieves just blatantly steal…..you on the other hand masquerade as a do-gooder and let the Washington thieves do your dirty work for you. How very noble of you!

            I do admire your entrepreneurship in going into business for yourself. Just wondering how you would feel if someone else or even big government came in and dictated to you that you will have to give say a 30% discount to people who want what you have to offer, but don’t feel they can pay the price for a product or service they did not in any way plan for…but must have? I know it’s easy when you’re telling others they must dole out a higher percentage….but when you have to dole out the extra….different story huh? Yeah….I bet you’d be just giddy all over….ready to dole it out if the previous administration did it….yeah right!

            I too own my own (modest) home, rental property, and some land back home. You did beat me however with the number of vehicles you own; I own only one vehicle, as I can only drive one at a time and it’s been paid off for about 7+ years…..and I did not purchase a new one under the recent cash for clunkers bail out, although I certainly could have qualified.

            I’m proud (but not too proud) of what I’ve obtained in my life, however I am more proud of the fact that I’ve accomplished something while still helping others along the way. Maybe you just forgot to mention it, but I don’t recall you commenting on any help you’ve offered others while amassing your individual wealth, owning three vehicles and contributing to Gore’s global warming dynasty….be it , what it is (NOT) …in your scathing comment to me. Like I said, maybe you just forgot….or maybe you just will never understand how conservatives can be fiscally responsible, yet very caring and very giving people. I know….that’s just a terrible image to wrap you FLL brain around.

            You also failed to answer one question. How many employees did you hire? One last after thought: You don’t own a supposedly non-profit ….like maybe ACORN…do you? Just wondering!

            Fed Up Gal
            P.S. I don’t think I ever said you were “low class”…..hmmmm…. could it be your twin personality coming out?

          • cr747

            Fed Up Gal In N M,,well did you see where that Obama’s ACORN LIE got EXPOSED today..

            President Obama said,” Quote on Quote,” and I welcome ACORN’S input.. You don’t have to ask me about that..”Talking about ACORN,”.. I’m going to call you even if you don’t ask me..
            When I ran Project Vote, voter registration drive in Illinois, you know ACORN was smack dad in the middle of it.. Once I was elected, there wasn’t a campaign that ACORN worked on down in Springfield that I wasn’t right there with you.. Since I’ve been in the United Stated Senate, I’ve been always a partner with ACORN as well.. I’ve been fighting with ACORN, alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career..”Quote on Quote”

        Anymore, our kids are not safe at school, what with the left wing liberal indoctrination into sex in 2nd grade, when they shouldnt even be thinking about things like that, and in teaching them tolerance of the people that are planning on killing us. Telling them that a bird pooped on a rock and the sun fermented it and thats how we came to be, instead of teaching them the truth, that a loving God created us.

      OR, I agree with you, but we as a nation must take stock of the values of whom ever we vote in.
      These persons MUST match the American peoples moral base as well the Constitution and Bill of Rights that was signed into law way back when. We have as a country have allowed countless POLY – TICKS to suck the life blood out of us all.

      If we don’t follow what I just stated, we will be trading “one Con Artist for another.”

      I as well have been talking about this move, as soon as Barry noted a ” Standard form of Investments” for the American people I knew just what he had in mind. “Plunder Rape and Pillage.”

      The moneys that have been stolen from all Government programs no matter what they are, it has to come from somewhere.
      You all know where thats coming from. { YOU }and what little you have left after the decline in your homes value, the incressing Tax burdens that will end all small business once and for all.

      Get ready for the comming year of assults on the last very vestiges of your Freedoms, as Barry is far from done yet, but so close its just about a 1984 moment.

      Again this is not a Democrat or Republican thing, this is a plan to destroy the United States of America once and for all.

          I fully believe Obama supports the Islamic terrorist cause, because the muslims stick together whether right or wrong.

  • Patriot007

    Another desparate act of a person without any genuine thought or good sense. Obamacrats, like Obama desire to create a plantation where everyone will see what it’s like to work for nothing, while he tells us how much better things are now. I keep thinking how much better things would be if this idiot were not elected by the urbanites who can’t seem to make it by their own means, they sponge off of the productive class – this includes politicians. I hope this little civics lesson to the country educates those wanting something for nothing because their “hope and change” is certain to be for the worse!

      Patriot,
      What the American leaches don’t quite get is it will be just like what happened in Russia, China, and Cuba, the ones who thought that everything would be free, and they would have life on easy street well they found that SLAVE LABOR camps, or if one would prefer, DEATH CAMPS, are what they ended up in.

            Denniso – I think it’s called personal liberty – people spout out their opinions, as you do on a regular basis. There’s very little censorship on this site – for a reason. It’s open to all opinions – (with the exception of barring foul language and too personal of attacks at other posters or the writer of the article, etc) and I’ve noticed the left frequently accuses people of things they never said more often than not…just what they are imaging, yes I meant imaging, in their own heads.

That is all he campaigned on, 3 words, change, change, change. He brought no plan, no directives, no solutions, just pointing the finger at Bush, and saying change, change, change, and since the liberal media had attacked Bush on these same brain suckers for 8 years, the uneducated, instead of seeing the progress we made, and seeing the true state of things, voted for someone they did not know, knew absolutely nothing about, didnt know who he was or what he was, or what he stood for, yet they bought into change, change, change, because their brain suckers told them to.

      • denniso

        So, the ‘uneducated’ elected Obama?? Here I thought the rightwing extremist mantra was that it was ‘elitists’ who elected him…you really shouldn’t so clearly show your ignorance by flip flopping so readily.

    This is of great concern and more people need to be concerned. I get the picture that any IRA Annuity is included in this money grab of Obama and his Marxist cabinet. People retired and on small amount of Social InSecurity which is supplemented with modest savings in IRA or Annuity accounts will face near poverty existence under the Obama-Biden plan.
    The president should never be given as much power as Obama has taken to himself – and yet his supporters have such faith in him that they brush off all these warnings as extremism. But then, many of them have no savings anyway since they spend it on partying and drugs.

    • Tim

      You mentioned that Obama had too much power. I recall former President George W. Bush was the most power hungry president ever. Remember how he spied on Americans and practiced torture.

      • wayne

        What a blind idiot. You don’t know the meaning of torture and the patriot act hurt no one,except terrorists. You (words removed for offensive content) repeaters ought to find a differnt country to worship your muslim marxist leader.

        A Liberal recalls Bush. How unusual!
        You have conveniently forgotten that only 1 Democrat Senator voted against the Patriot Act, and more than 2/3 of the House Democrats voted for the Patriot Act. It seems that the Democrats like bigger government even if it goes against their stated goals.

        Tim,
        At least mention WHIH Americans he spied on!!! If you are still talking about the troops, that has been legal in all times of war. the inspection of mail, the listening in on all calls and listening to conversations of soldiers is LEGAL under the UCMJ!! This was instituted to prevent the “accidental” slip of troop numbers, location, movement and missions!!! it has happened even in WW2. A lot of letters were stamped opened and inspected!

        It was wrong when Bush did it. Now that Obama has expanded on the idea and Czar Napolitano has put patriotic Americans on terrorist watch lists…it’s all Bush’s fault? You’re going to have to do better than that.

      • denniso

        You people are utterly hopeless, blind, dense, destructive and juvenile, all at the same time…amazing. Bush didn’t have the brains to do much of anything on his own,it was Cheny who masterminded the worst of those 8 yrs,including the most egregious presidential power grab in memory. Now you geniuses here want to forget and ignore the idiocy and illegality of Cheny’s term, but that’s now how history works…but of course, you dropouts wouldn’t know that. You think that politics in OUR country is only about spewing hate and lies about the opposition for the sole purpose of regaining your power.

        • JeffH

          duh!nisso, what has Obama accomplished on his own? I’ll answer that, triple our national debt in just 12 months! Otherwise, he has accomplished nothing, unless YOU give him and O’Biden credit for success in Iraq. NOT!

          • denniso

            Umm, you’d better check your facts because you’re utterly wrong…nothing new for you. The national HAS NOT tripled under Obama.

          • JeffH

          Exactly who are you to call others “dropouts”? Your short-memory brain dropped out the minute someone ran and was subsequently elected, that promised you anything and everything without you having to take ownership or responsibility for getting it for yourself (in a legal way, that it is). You heard what you wanted to hear and figured that pipe dream was only one worth reaching for. How pitiful, yet FLL typical!

      I’ve flown only the Navy ensign and the Gadsden flag (both versions of “Don’t Tread on Me”) since Obummer was elected. The only exception was flying the stars and stripes (at full staff) on the occasion of Ted Kennedys death. I may use the Fort Moultrie, Bonnie Blue, Confederate Battle or others but will not (except in the event of another celebratory occasion) fly the U.S. flag until the Kenyan Marxist leaves office.

    • Matt

      I guess people were too stupid to realize that if Obama wouldn’t even show his real long form birth certificate that he wasn’t going to be very transparent once in office.

      Call me a birther I don’t care. Has anyone seen the “Show me the Carfax” commercials. No one in their right mind would buy a car from a salesperson that refused to every extent to produce this simple paperwork. If you did and bought a lemon you have no one to blame but yourself.

      So I ask, if we wouldn’t even buy a car from such a man, why would we ever consider electing Obama if he didn’t produce such a simple form?
      Citizen or not, its not the only point. It goes to character, honor and a belief that he serves us, not the other way around.

      He has no character or honor and if we don’t demand more from our leaders we will keep getting more of the same.

          • George

            Publicly, they are saying the rate increase is necessary to abate inflation because the economy is recovering. A rate increase should help the USD to increase in value, and that should have a positive impact on inflation. However, I think the real reason is to encourage creditors to buy more US treasury bonds.

      • Claire

        Talk about being brainwashed. This is exactly what is going on in our crazy world. Americans are listening to the creators of dissent and drivel i.e., Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Olbermann, Maddow, Coulter, etc. Does anyone realize we are falling into their hands? People are being played like a “fiddle.” People are being manipulated by the best dissent creators that were ever born. They are nothing more than paid entertainers that are positively delighted when anything “bad” happens. Look at what Joseph Stack did. The economy and all this garbage we hear on the media sometimes drives some people to do crazy things. Is this a solution? No. It makes News for the media, nothing more. And now his poor family has to suffer for what he has done. It is time to “get a grip.”
        Sure, I care who our President is, but I will never call him/her a filthy name. I voted for both Bushes, do I call them a filthy name? No, I don’t. And I voted for Obama. Does that make me a liar and a cheat? No, it doesn’t. Does it make me a bad person? No, it doesn’t. All of us have the right to make the choices we make in life. I am not happy with the way things are going either. And I won’t crucify anyone for their choices. All I can do at this point in my life is try to make the best decisions I can the next time around.

      That’s a valid thought. I know people who immigrated from eastern Europe 20 years ago who say they had more freedom back there. That should give you an idea how quickly the US has “completely” turned away from it’s own founding principles.
      As for retirement funds? How about precious metals in a water tight ammon case buried next to your full auto carbine?

  • realbigal

    Juan Peron Obama keeps making it harder and harder for us to continue using restraint and not labelling him as a Communist.

    • Tim

      You obviously don’t know what the word “Communist” means. Obama is not one of them! He is in favor of the free enterprise system. Communism is complete control of the government over the affairs of the people. Obama operates under a democratic style of government. He isn’t trying to change this.

      Also, when republicans call Obama a “Socialist,” that is also a misnomer. Socialism is control of the economy by the government. Even Canada, Britain, Germany, and other western countries don’t practice socialism. The former Soviet Union practiced Socialism. Their initials USSR meant “Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.”

      The correct term to describe the type of government that countries like Canada have, is “Social Democratic.” This is a style of government where free enterprise operates, with regulation by the government. I actually wish the U.S. had a Social Democratic style of government. If we had, then there would be universal health insurance, better environmental laws, and better gun control. We can learn a lot from Canada.

      • wayne

        Every thing canada has done is failure but since you are so envious get your idiotic butt out of US and live in canada. Quit leaching off independent working americans. Their health system is total failu8re, their gun control is asinine and being discontinued, please leave.

          they haven’t died yet. Emergency room wait times are as little as 12 hours but if you’re bleeding all over the floor they’ll get to you a little quicker. So their Health Care system works just fine as long as you never need it. ;)

      • Joe

        Yes, we can learn a LOT from Canada such as how NOT to be free. How to have terrible, poorly run, super expensive healthcare where people die on waiting lists, and how to give up the liberties that our founders enshrined in the Constitution.

        Where does your so-called “Social Democracy” end? It ends in complete governmental control of the lives of the citizenry. Our founders called that tyranny.

        Thus that leads to the “FACT,” that we still have some Democrats that see through Barry and thank GOD will not subject the persons who voted them into office to the CRAZY laws Barry wants.

    Can you recommend a few “reliable” sources to help move my 401K off-shore? What is to keep the Big “O” from tracking the money and confiscating it as FDR did with privately owned gold that there was a record of?

    • http://Don'thaveone Sally

      I would like to know that answer also as you are correct, if it is in US dollars they track all over the world and believe me they can come up with anything to confiscate it. I have reprinted an artical that I received yesterday.
      By LYNNLEY BROWNING
      Published: February 16, 2010
      A wealthy investor in Virginia pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal tax evasion involving an international bank, said by a person briefed on the case to be HSBC, one of the world’s largest private banks.

      The case is significant because it shows that the authorities are expanding beyond UBS, the giant Swiss financial company, in their scrutiny of banks suspected of helping wealthy Americans evade taxes. It also offers an example of a bank that apparently took steps to hide its operations in the wake of the UBS case, even as many banks said they were shutting undeclared offshore services for American clients.

      The investor, Dr. Andrew B. Silva, of Sterling, Va., pleaded guilty to failing to disclose to the American tax authorities more than $250,000 that he had kept at a bank using a sham Liechtenstein trust, according to court papers filed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. While the papers do not identify the bank, the person briefed on the case said it was HSBC, which is based in London but has a large Swiss operation. Christopher S. Rizek, a lawyer for Dr. Silva, declined to comment.

      Juanita Gutiérrez, a spokeswoman for HSBC, declined to comment.

      In December, the person briefed on the matter said the Justice Department expanded its investigation of foreign banks with offshore private banking services to include HSBC and Credit Suisse. HSBC’s private bank, one of the world’s largest, managed assets of $352 billion as of the end of 2008, according to the company.

      According to court papers, Dr. Silva, a head and neck surgeon, inherited $250,000 from his mother in 1997 and deposited it in a Swiss bank. His mother told him to write a “coded letter” to a Swiss lawyer in Zurich who was managing the account, held in the name of a Liechtenstein trust.

      In 1999, Dr. Silva met the lawyer, who told him the account was “hush hush” and that “it would be best if he did not talk to others about it.” The lawyer declined to give Dr. Silva documents pertaining to the account, saying that he should keep them for safety. Court papers did not identify the lawyer.

      In August 2009, the bank told him it was closing his account, which had grown to $268,000, because it was closing offshore undeclared accounts of wealthy Americans. The Swiss lawyer told Dr. Silva that the bank would not transfer the funds by wire because it “would create a trail for U.S. authorities,” according to the court papers.

      The Swiss lawyer advised Dr. Silva to send the money home from four separate post offices in Zurich by regular and priority mail, staggering the deliveries over weeks so that the “envelopes did not look suspicious.”

      The Swiss lawyer took Dr. Silva to meet his banker on Oct. 12, 2009. The Swiss banker handed Dr. Silva “$115,000 in U.S. currency consisting of an individually wrapped brick of $100,000 in sequentially numbered, new $100 bills.” A second bundle contained $15,000. The banker told Dr. Silva the bank “could not provide him with more cash at the time.”

      Throughout October, Dr. Silva mailed the money to his Virginia home in amounts of less than $10,000 — below the limit at which money being brought into the United States must be declared. Dr. Silva mailed more money in November after meeting again with his Swiss banker and lawyer in Zurich. The bank told him not to carry any statements because it could lead to discovery of his accounts.

      In all, he mailed dozens of envelopes and hand-carried others into Dulles International Airport near Washington. Dr. Silva, who is scheduled to be sentenced on May 7, faces a $500,000 fine and 10 years in prison.

      In the last year, seven American clients of UBS have pleaded guilty to using offshore accounts to avoid taxes.

      As part of its deferred prosecution deal with the Justice Department in February 2009, UBS was not allowed to distribute cash when it closed its undeclared offshore banking services for wealthy Americans. UBS averted indictment by admitting to criminal wrongdoing with its private banking services and agreeing to pay $780 million

        Yawn! Ahhhhh!

        All I can say is, I’m glad we’re not rich. But now they’re attacking the Middle Class. Soon we’ll al be eligible for Medicaid.

  • BABUSHSKA

    Keep sounding the alarm bell to everyone with ears to hear, and the intelligence to listen. I fear it may be time to begin withdrawing money from our IRAs, slowly to avert paying large penalties, and simply hide the cash. But even precious metals will also be at risk as President F. Roosevelt in 1933 confiscated gold & silver declaring
    a banking emergency. Read the act which gave him this unbelievable power.

    Executive order: By virtue of the
    authority vested in me by Section 5(B) of
    The Act of Oct. 6,
    1917, as amended by section 2 of
    the Act of March 9, 1933, in which
    Congress declared that
    a serious emergency exists, I as
    President, do declare that the national
    emergency still exists;
    That the continued private hoarding
    of gold and silver by subjects of the United
    States poses a
    grave threat to the peace, equal
    justice, and well-being of the United
    States; and that appropriate
    measures must be taken immediately
    to protect the interests of our people.

    “Therefore, pursuant to the above
    authority, I herby proclaim that such gold
    and silver holdings
    are prohibited, and that all such
    coin, bullion or other possessions of gold
    and silver be tendered within fourteen days
    to agents of the Government of the United
    States for compensation at the
    official price, in the legal tender of
    the Government. All safe deposit boxes in
    banks or financial
    institutions have been sealed,
    pending action in the due course of the
    law. All sales or purchases
    or movements of such gold and
    silver within the borders of the United
    States and its territories,
    and all foreign exchange
    transactions or movements of such metals
    across the border are herby prohibited.

    “Your possession of these
    proscribed metals and/or your maintenance
    of a safe-deposit box to
    store them is known to the
    Government from bank and insurance
    records. Therefore, be advised
    that your vault box must remain
    sealed, and may only be opened in the
    presence of an agent of
    The Internal Revenue Service.

    “By lawful Order given this day,
    the President of the United States.”

    This law is still on the books which grants our gov’t the right to recall privately owned gold and silver. Ron Paul has recommended the repeal of this act but to no avail.

    Our monetary system is in grave jeopardy, as are so many countries now who make up the EU. This global crisis is building to a crescendo to prepare the way for implementation of a one-world currency which has already been proposed, and the creation of a “new world order,” (synomous with one world government) with Obama as its global president. Ultimately, satan will enter and control this man.

    • blackhat

      Of course the whole order is offensive…but, did anyone else catch the phrase “subjects of the United States”. I find this particularly offensive. After serving 26 yrs in the Army, I would never call myself “subject” to any country. I am American by birth, true enough, but I stay here by choice. Being “subject” sounds like I do not have that choice.

      • JeffH

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Don Smith

    I am so refreshed to read all of your comments and re-enforce that I am not alone in my thoughts and beliefs. If we can just hold the damage to a minimum until Nov. 2010 and vote all of these nut cases out of office, maybe we can save our nation. I am a proud conserveative and support others that think the same way. I have never posted any message before, but the sleeping giant has been awakened in myself and milions of others as well. God bless America!

    • Tim

      What is a “conserveative”?

      • DaveH

        It’s somebody who doesn’t believe in theft, Tim, whether it is committed by the local gangsters or the Government Gangsters.
        But then, you wouldn’t understand that concept being preoccupied by the sight of that government trough.

      • blackhat

        Well, Tim, if you take the “eat” out of “conserveative” and then transpose the letters you get “TEA”. Some would say “Taxed Enough Already”, but others have less flattering terms. The conspiratorial wing of the progressive party should really see through this ruse quickly, as I am sure you agree that BO and crew are much smarter than the rest of us, and surely we could never fool them with our pathetic attempts at code words. So, you got us! Good job! Now here is your cookie…

    • Matt

      In the game of chesslike politics,a major concern I have is that after the 2010 elections, is that there will be nothing to stop these losers from voting in health care or cap-and-trade before they finish their term and the new congressman is sworn in.

      I’m sure Obama would push for this if he could.

      • American Citizen

        The way things are going, I wonder if there will be enough votes to pass that bill. I sure hope enough of those political hacks up there are waking up.

  • Joe Berger

    So, maybe instead of either leaving ym IRA alone to ride it out, or taking my IRA offshore, with who knows what value change in either circumstance, I’m better off paying the 25% marginal tax rate now (I’m over 59-1/2, so no penalty?), and pulling all of it out, and paying down my mortgage. That’s only 4.625%, but if I pay it, I have achieved instantly a GUARANTEED 4.625% return on my investment – which number is far better than what I’ve achieved lately.
    Then if the government hijacks the IRA’s, mine is gone and they can’t touch it, so no loss for me. My mortgage will be paid further down, thus end sooner, making more of my future income, at whatever tax rate I’m paying then, available for cash.
    Does this make sense to anyone, or am I all wet somewhere?

    • http://Don'thaveone Sally

      I do agree with what you say about paying down the mortgage however I don’t know where you live or whether you can have a garden to supply your family with food and maybe raise a few chickens for eggs and meat. If you can do that where you are presently living, my goodness yes – its all about survival, if not maybe you can buy a small plot of land nearby to accomplish the same (except if that were the case, your garden and chicken house would be raped) Don;t know will see what other readers propose.

      • American Citizen

        If you live in a community of good neighbors, there is usually a lot big enough to have a community garden. There are also farmer’s markets during the summer. If you know how to can and freeze, do that. If you don’t, learn.

    • Tim

      All of this talk about the government taking your retirement money is bull. It is just another jab at Obama, because he is operating as a Social Democrat, which is a good thing. Obama is doing the best he can to better our country, no thanks to republicans.

      You have the freedom to move your money around as you see fit, but rest assured that the government won’t take your money. Don’t listen to all these rightwing nuts in here, who are always taking a swing at the govenment. If they had their way, we would have anarchy and vigilante justice.

      • DaveH

        Oh, instead we should listen to an ignorant Liberal who supports a president who has lied repeatedly and shown a complete disregard for the future of our children and grandchildren with his profligate spending of our tax dollars?

        • J C

          Just another communist disciple of the Annointed One Dave. They are a simple lot and do not realize just how misled they are. I feel sorry for them but that won’t stop me from being completely hostile towards them. An army of “yes we can” zombies is still a threat and should be treated as such.

      • Joe Berger

        We may STILL today have the ability to move our money around – but new rules I found at tax filing time mean you CANNOT have your tax refund direct-deposited into a bank account ‘which will be eventually transferred outside the US’ – they will convert your direct deposit to a paper check – which means extra weeks of delay. Why is that, if we can still do exactly what we want with our money? Why does it make a difference to Uncle Sam WHERE MY MONEY will ‘eventually go’??

        • http://Don'thaveone Sally

          Joe you are so right. When anyone says that the Government won’t seize money for whatever reason, the are absolutely CLUELESS. IRS has closed down many of the offshore ligitmite banks and have them shaking in their shoes as they can close down them having USD accounts. But if that is what they want to believe and not get ready, that is their problem, not yours and mine, we can leave and become citizens somewhere else.

        • J C

          Dan O I lived in Canada a good long time. The people there are generally just like us. They have their right and left arguments as well. Problem is they are largely disarmed and do not have the subtle threat of violence behind them as does their government, our government and “we the people”. So they’re in a wait and see what happen in the US position. As usual, patriotic Americans will be the last line of defense against world wide tyranny. Thing is, this time we’re going to gave to start by cleaning our own house.

      • George

        Tim,

        If we had our way, we would have a “constitutional republic” with individual freedom and responsibility, and a thriving economy based on classical capitalist principles. This model has been proven to improve the lives and standard of living for more people than any socialist model, which attempts to establish fairness and eliminate risk at the expense of wealth creation and individual responsibility.

  • Hello?

    Getting pretty clear by now what the true intention of our ilustrious leader. The best way to take over a country is to plan long term, slip in under the radar with promise of change and of course THEY picked the right time with the economy going down. They tried to destroy the World Trade Center once and failed and with 911 they got it done and now we have one of them as president. Just like America to elect a a confessed Muslum as president just a few years after they killed 3000 people, no wonder we are in this type of situation. Everything that they are doing is supposed to be in the name of good with the intentions of destroying our economy and way of life once and for all.
    Change can go either way but they don’t realize how this country became so great and we will not be flushed down the toilet so easily.

    • Tim

      Obama is not a muslim; he is a christian. Also, it was Bush who drove our country into a ditch! Obama inherited a mess from Bush and the Repubicans! Republicans absolutely can NOT government! They are so incompetent!

        Give it up Tim. You have no credibility on this board.

      • DiverDan

        Responding to Tim, It was not Bush that made the economy fall apart, follow some recent history,
        There was Nixon & ford, and after their mess up the country was ready for ANY Democrat to elect, so along came Jimmy Carter and the oil shortages, gas lines and the Dept of energy to make us less dependent on foreign oil, which has mushroomed in size by number of employees and annual budget, with more dependancy than before, Oh, almost forgot the Iran Hostages,
        Then Ronald Regan/Bush Sr. era which helped us all start an Ira, letting us know there would not be enough SS for all of us, so you better start saving and investing on your own, Investment tax credits to small businesses to purchase new equipment to expand their businesses and hire more people, first to build those machines, and the more people to operate them at your company, Intel, Microsoft, Dell,Boeing, Gen elect, Gen Motors, all flurished, then along came BILLY BOB CLINTON, the smooth talker who did very little, that is why he had time on his hands and his aide on his lap and the decline started.
        So George Jr. had to try to build it back up, and then came 9/11 so had to do something to strike back at our enemy so the economy suffered some no question, But then this Great speaker ( with promter only) they al drink the Kool Aid all the freeloaders, that think the government will support them get out to vote for one of these false profits, promising them the promised land they bit HOOK LINE & SINKER,
        Now we have DEBT, and no future

      I offer the following comments:

      Bush was the one who killed America. He did this in Iraq (over 5,000 servicemen killed) and he annihilated the budget surplus that he inherited from Clinton. Bush drove our country into the ditch. That is why his approval rating was 36% when he left office.

      Obama’s stimulus bill consisted of 25 different tax cuts to both individuals and small businesses. 95% of working Americans got tax cuts from the stimulus. That beats the Bush tax cuts to the rich! Go to the following links:

    In reading all of the comments, I fail to see the truth published. Obama grew up as a Muslim Marxist, mentored, financed, promoted, and supplied to America both both Marxists and some, Muslim Marxists. WHAT CAN WE EXPECT and HOW CAN WE STOP THIS, other than standing up, both now and if, and when this all comes down as I see it. We all need to educate those around us be prepared for anything at any time, for ourselves, our families and our friends/ neighbors. This financial crisis is part of their plan and DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING COMING OUT OF the MOUTH OF OBAMA OR HIS ORGAINZATION which is huge and THEY ARE PLAYING THIS GAME FOR KEEPS. I ask you, ARE YOU GOING TO STAND UP or BE A SHEEP like the Jewish People who walked to those trains and chambers? Europe, SOROS, OBAMA and ALL MUST BE AND WILL BE STOPPED!

    • Hello?

      Dee, have you did your homework, Bill Clinton signed a bill in 1999 to allow banks to loan sub prime mortages under the pressure of Acorn,NAACP and others and I will promise you that the banks were promised a bailout by the Government if anything went wrong. Figure it out, no bank would loan sub-prime money without an insurance policy. Just like usual the Democrats are buying votes with your money and there are more recievers voting now than producers and the Democrats ate playing us for fools and it seems they know exactly what they are doing , it is working.

        Obama was working closely with Billary to bring this about too.
        Which is why he has no right to blame anybody else.

  • http://butterflytreasuresmemorials.com MaryHolloway Love

    The situation in America has become untenable. Obama now owns 55% of GM, and the UAW owes him BIG, as the President of USA voided contract law when he railroaded the bankruptcy of GM through, leaving the bondholders, who were contractually FIRST in line to be paid, kicked to the end of the line and got zip, and let the UAW break in at the FRONT of the line, where they had NO LEGAL RIGHT, and received 55% of the new company WITH NO LEGAL RIGHT! Now our Government is unleashing all its power against its largest competitor, Toyota, and will go to any lengths, legal and non-legal, to destroy it. The average American citizen is Toyota and the GM Bondholders. We are being crushed under the “Chicago style” politics that crawled out of the slime of the Chicago-machine and took up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and most of the Czar positions and inner circle that “advises” the leader of the free world (though he most not know that yet, since he continues to BOW to other lesser leaders); Obama will be known as the Apologist President and the “Blame Bush” for his entire presidency. The average American needs to close out any retirement account he/she can, purchase gold coins and silver coins/bars, take ACTUAL DELIVERY, and put any additional funds in an offshore account in a sound foreign currency. (I recommend the Chinese currency or the Indian currency) but get OUT of the American dollar.One or both of two things are going to happen—either Obama is going to “nationalize” the pension/private retirement accounts and mandate they be put in government instruments, OR the American Dollar is going to crater, as in Germany and Zimbabwe, and those still holding instruments based on the dollar are going to watch it evaporate. I realize these are dire predictions, but could anyone living in America have believed this country would be where we are now with all the bailouts, the government takeover of banks, finance, wallstreet, manufacturing (auto), housing, insurance, and setting compensation limits in private corporations that did not take ANY TARP funds but MIGHT pose a systemic risk to the economy? Think on this.

    • Dale

      “Now our Government is unleashing all its power against its largest competitor, Toyota, ”

      Just not true . . . the collection of Toyota recalls of the last 5 years is entirely of their own making. The bodies have been piling up, while Toyota denied, blamed customers, denied, blamed suppliers and then blamed American workers. I have know about several of these problems since 2005, Toyota kept it quiet. Never in history has the NHTSA had to send a rep to Japan to the head office to tell them to cease selling product in the UN, because they failed to address recall issues. None of the Domestic Manufacturers handled recalls this way, they were always open and public.
      Steve Wozniak co-founder of apple had his prius runaway while USING HIS CRUISE CONTROL AND WASN’T TOUCHING THE ACC. PEDAL! He contacted Toyota USA months ago and told them who he was, and nobody at high levels of toyota gave him the time of day. Since the media published his story – now Toyota wants to ‘look’ at his car! Wozniak claims it is ‘definitely a software issue’. I think Steve is right . . . this has nothing to do with the present govt . . . its all about Toyota, their method of sourcing the cheapest parts and their lack of concern for customers.

      • Joe H.

        Dale,
        I suggest you look into the recalls on corvair and the problems associated with Mustangs gas tank! Also look into the industrial glue lawsuits that clain that glue used in dashboards causes cancer in children that chewed on dash while waiting in car with parents. the cases were in the courts for over 20 years. the company that produced the glues were, I believe, Huges Chemical!!!

        • American Citizen

    Welcome all to Land of the New Liberal Social Commi Nazi Democratic Party. Now that evil lives here. Now that evil is the Democratic Party and the Bildenberg Group who wants to kill 6 billion people and rule the world. We have to stand against this, We have to be willing to fight with everything we have to remove the illegal Alien who is the figure head for the Bildenberg Group and also has his own agenda with his Muslim extremist friends.

    Question is who will rule the World?
    Will it be the Muslim extremists?
    The Bildenberg mass Murder group ?

    +
    Or will we put aside our differences and stand together as the nation that our forefathers created for us and fight the two front war we are in to win the freedom not just for ourselves but our future and the future of every single person on the face of the earth.

    We have a decision to make as people who live in this country and it time now to make it with no hesitation, no regrets, and the wiliness for us to understand that some will die so that the future that everyone of see lives with our kids and there kids.

    • Tim

      You really went off on a tangent! I mean calling the present administration communist is bogus! We have a democratic style of government. Maybe you need to get a dictionary, because Communist means control by the government over everything. The last time I checked, we still had a free enterprise system in the USA. I don’t have to go underground to read my Bible or voice my opposition to the government.

      • blackhat

        Tim…You need a lesson in civics. We do not have a democracy, we have a representative democracy. The problem lies in that the power of the entire US is vested in about 600 people, unless that average American is willing to make his or her likes and dislikes known to those 600, or so that represent them. So, stop stepping on others rights to free speech and start your own blog to worship the annointed one.

        Every rightwing nut thinks Bill O’Reilly is a beacon of honesty and truth.He used to work for Inside Edition,a few years ago a woman colleague accused him of sexeual harassment.I think they settle it out of court.

        • blackhat

          Sure did…and, I guess that just making a charge will make you guilty…and, if you choose to settle out of court you must be guilty…but, I would think that his accuser would want justice, not money. Makes one wonder about her motivation, which leads to questionong honesty, then, to the veracity of the charges…but, since Clinton was accused he must be guilty too.

          • blackhat

            that should read “questioning her honesty”

    As always, Whitey gets the blame for everything! However, Obamma has turned the cards on his own people (whoever they really are). They thought that he was their Black Savior, but Obamma turns out to be a “Color” Man, any color that works. His “Color” turns out to be a mix of Socialism, Communism and Marxism …. at any cost. The sad problem is, there are many just like him, with the same mentality and goals and they are in government positions. Their success in dumbing down America has given them the assumption of a bloodless overthrowing of America. In fact, the number of Patriotic Government Officials could probably be counted on one hand. Our only chance is that the masses get overcome by a mass saturation of Common Sense and Internal Fortitude. Prayer: “Dear God, if you still help complete idiots … please help America, a land where Stupidity Rules among the Masses!!

      Further, we do have to prepare but we also need to wait to see what happens in May and November. Latter part of May (I believe it is May 26th) is the impeachment proceedings against Obama,elections in November, and I forget the date of all of the legal proceedings that have been in the works since last year that Obama or whats his name, has to produce his long form birth certificate, college records, etc. I for one am praying that he cannot and therefore will be removed so that every executive order and all bills he has signed are null and void. It would be nice to have to hold a special election to replace the fraud – don’t know how we pull that one off.

      • wayne

        The rumors of legal battles are nothing but delay tactics. Obama has used $2 million of our money to hide his illegality, and the attorneys keep stealing our money. The system is useless. The longer they sit the safer they are.

      • Tim

        You talked about jobs being killed. For your information, George W. Bush wiped out about 3.7 manufacturing jobs during his two terms. Manufacturing (including the auto industry was doing great during the Clinton years. It proves that republicans are incompetent!

        • blackhat

          OMG Tim…you are really ignorant about facts…let’s see…Look at the GDP and the jobless charts.

          Over the past few years the jobless rate was at 5.0, 4.7, 5.2, and then, in 2007 it starts inching up. And by the time you get to the end of 2008, it’s almost going straight up to 10%. It is also interesting to note that the single biggest month for job loss since 1974 was in November 2008 (Obama’s election).

          With the 2007 GDP, if you look at the same time period, you will start to see it come down shortly after the start of 2007. This all happens to coincide when the Democrats took control of Congress.

          But, I guess you have a different interpretation of reality…Dems got control of congress and jobs and the GDP started to crash…facts cannot be changed.

        • JeffH

          Gee Tiny Tim, isn’t 3.7 jobs lost much better than 8 million?

          • Joe H.

            JeffH,
            There were 47,000 more jobs lost last month than they expected. Just like we were sayin here about a month ago that the further you get from the holidays the truer the job lossesw would be!!!!

      Just so you know, the fed gov’t backs up most large private pension plans because the private corporations can’t be trusted to take care of them. Obama IS NOT going to steal your pension,but he may save it if the company that has it goes broke,like has happened before.

      Thanks Kris,

      We need to get busy organizing.(this is what he was good at). In every district, where someone wants to run for state or whitehouse seats, they should sit with a board (randomly pick persons ((voters of record over 35))) that we create, to find out what these persons want to do if we vote for them. They have to sign a contract at this board meeting stating what his or her intentions are and if they deviate, they have broken their contract with the constituents and are no longer serving them and must leave that seat. They must check in with the board monthly to tell us what is on the table for him to vote on and who is lobbying him and for what. They will get only their salary and when they come out, they only have their s.s., so they get a job like everybody else. There will be no pension or high-classed medical care. If you don’t have your own healthcare (why don’t you?), you are just not eligible. You are there to serve the people and get a salary to do so. One term is all you get and if you do a good job, stay there for two. Sucubus’s need not apply. If you can see this….pass it around in emails throughout this country and let’s get this done. As someone has stated already, the handwriting was on the wall during the campaign as to what we were going to get, but we have to vote from emotions…looking at pretty and performance…all b.s. The time has come to stop licking the glass after the kool-aid has been drunk. Get good water at waterandyou dot info

  • winperk

    We need constitutional law not the fraud of “case law”

  • Joe from Indiana

    This really all comes down to the proper role of government.

    Our founders believed that “The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not to provide equal things”. This is the founders’ 7th Principle of Liberty

    They also knew that at the very heart of liberty lies the concept of private property rights. The right to keep what you have earned, either through your own labor or through your legal dealings with others (like purchases and investments), is at the very core of our freedom. It is the 14th Principles of Liberty: “Life and liberty are secure only so long as the right to property is secure”.

    Some of you “social-democrats” [lol] would do well to pick up a book on the Founders. I suggest “The 5000 Year Leap” for starters.

    • Tim

      Social Democracy makes a lot more sense than the present type of government we, where the rich are catered too more than the common man.

      • blackhat

          • blackhat

            ROFLMAO…well said!!! He, He!

      • Joe from Indiana

        Nobody is catered to. It is called equal protection under the law. That’s the thing about freedom: Every man is free to rise to the level of his or her ability. The founders knew this. And the founders also saw the redistribution of wealth schemes, and rejected them.

        Sam Adams said, “The utopian schemes of levelling [redistribution] and a community of goods are as visionary and impracticle as those which vest all property in the crown. They are arbitrary, despotic, and in our current form of government, UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

        The founders sought to make collectivism unconstitutional because they knew it would deprive the people of wealth, liberty and property.

        As to your claim that so-called “Social democracy” makes more sense, I would reply “Only in theory”. History has vindicated the Principles of Liberty as enshrined in The Constitution by paying witness to the most prosperous and free nation in the history of human existence. The proven track record of Constitutional principles can not be denied.

  • Merl Elton

    Funny as heck, the names Obummer and Obumbles; and also quite appropriate. Regular folks are just as smart and funny as any celebrity; perhaps it is shyness or valuing privacy that keeps them off the world stage.

    I agree, case law is not doubt a Satanic invention of evil minded progressives of both parties; and liberals creating grey areas that allow them the powerful to do as they will. It will take years to restore Constitutional law through brilliant, ethical, fair and effective conservative Constitutional law judges with God as their guide and Satan kept in check.

He served it up to the Republicans hard-core then as well as now… I’ve watched the “One-Way” view become more of an issue as time goes by… It is time for the Constitution to make it’s Return… I would think anyone speaking so boisterously about politics would have a copy … Do you? …

      In Louisanne also. A man has hundreds of acres there that has this finanomole sand that is used in making dikes.

I know the attorney who was fighting the case. The state sent in surveyors to mark off the land, and the owner ran them off with a shot gun. This is the most horrible things are going on in our country it makes me want to barf. So all you librals, don’t prepare and you will see. If we prepare and nothing happens great.

    • JeffH

      San Francisco resident Carla Ruff’s safe-deposit box was drilled, seized, and turned over to the state of California, marked “owner unknown.” Unknown? Carla’s name was right on documents in the box at the Noe Valley Bank of America location. So was her address — a house about six blocks from the bank. Carla had a checking account at the bank, too — still does — and receives regular statements.
      Ruff is far from alone and the state of California was seizing more than safety deposit boxes. Why was the state doing this? They needed the money. It’s that simple.

    Now, the government wants to end all entitlement programs SSI is in his top 10. What about Congress, and Senate entitlement programs, that pay them for life? Who else gets that?, they have not even done their job, they were elected to office to stop this spending on stupid programs, so what did they do, give them self a raise taking even more of the taxpayer money.

  • Conservative Carl

    The government that spent BILLIONS of $$$$$$$$$$ to save the UAW and other labor unions and ACORN – in repayment for votes – is also now so deep in debt to China, Japan and other nations that we may soon have a severe depression that could make the 1930′s version tame by comparison. Even if you don’t believe Obama and his cabinet will take much or all your pensions and IRA’s you ought to realize that it will open the way for more government and FED control of our money supply. Some of it might just trickle down in amounts to allow the peons to eat beans and rice. Whether you’re Democrat or Republican makes no difference. We’ll be in the same ship. We need to consider candidates outside both major parties, parties such as the Constitution Party and Libertarian Party. I know Tim and Norm will try to tear this message apart.

  • http://msm lorrainee lucas

    Tim are you getting obama money sure sound like it,this country made a big mistake the day of the eletion, not only for the people of the country the elderly and the future of america. do you have kids i doube it. or you do not give a darn, are you working or are you out of a job? certainly doesn’t sound you are elderly. because you don’t make any sense. do us all a favor throw out your computor. there is a heavy cloud hanging over the usa. Gods eyes are going back and forth. think what will happen when your life comes to the end. usa is a christain state and not the people states. but Obama wouldn’t know than he was born in kenya and not on the beachs of hawia.

    • bigguy

      Yes Obama is a communist. Ask who Obama’s mentor is. It is Frank Marshall Jones a knowed communist.He was his mentor when he was a young boy and still is. Obama is a Hitler all over again. He wants control of everything and everyone. Also go on the computer and look up George Soros, he is the guy with the money who runs Obama.See what he did to England. And how Obama gave brazil 2 millon dollars of are money to drill for oil because Soros has millions in there stocks. But he won’t drill here so we can be more indepentant. WAKE UP he should be impeached now before its to late. Remember they work for us “WE THE PEOPLE”

    Please know this much… The USD (U.S.Dollar) is not the finished product. There have already been new currencies put into circulation without “In God We Trust” on it… Go to your post office and get the Dollar coin… What good is Gold if you’re hungry? How about thirsty? Okay, how about cold? And how about sick? How valuable is that dollar if it fails? Old Ploy, Old Playbook.. But, New Dynamic!… We don’t need the Dollar in the first place… Why give them something to take from us thru taxation or depreciation? Please, My Fellow Americans, take this to heart : Whose the wealthies family in town during a food shortage? The one with the $? Or the one with the food? How about a drought? $ or Water? Okay, something we’ve all experienced… Power outage? $ or Electricity? How about Civil Unrest? $ or a good Rifle and Ammo?….. Wanna watch the Deficit go bye-bye? Take our Government employees payrole and benefits and role them back to Private-Sector scale… After all, aren’t they supposed to be Private Citizens?

      You’re right, you can’t eat money. It’s those of us who see what’s happening and stocking up who will survive. I’m worried about our investments, although we were promised we would not lose any of the money we put in. We’re beginning to pull out.

    It’s fitting that readers on this site don’t have to send in feedback via letters instead of e mail. Most ultra left looney tuners would have to get someone else to do it for them, as feedback scribbled in crayon is hard to justify [especially when they pretend to be adults and are required by their political handlers and community organizers to hurl constant streams of pc garbage].

    Will this Un-Credentialed unvetted incapable man try to steal your assets and your pensions? The answer is unless he is removed from the office which he holds illegally and isn’t removed soon, yes he will take the steps to attempt to make that action take place.

    The country is broke, jobs are scarce and the debt we have amassed is going to cause us to lose allies and impair our ability to defend this nation or maintain what is left of our borders. The IRS is going to come to a point where they are ordered to sieze assets and holdings in order for this illegal government to sustain itself. We are verging in a precarious area that will lead to worldwide incivility and a reptiton of the events leading up to the conflict of the 1940′s is going to come about, only this time there will be no winners, only losers.

      This is precisely why we MUST return to the founding principles.

      Good lord, if our public schools would just study more of The Constitution, Declaration, and Federalist Papers and less of sensitivity training and diversity/multiculturalism, this problem would solve itself. We lack an informed citizenry that is educated in the Principles of Liberty.

    Founded by tim cox who worked for Dell he was a software engneer,
    he quit his job becaue he was tried of all the bitching, we need to
    do something so he founded goooh. This is not a party it’s a movement
    to get rid of all the dems and reps and start over with people like us
    who are tried of the goverment. The congress is corruped by big money
    and lobyist. we need 500,000 names to sign up no money is needed now
    just go to website http://www.goooh.com. We our want the same thing getting
    the goverment out of our busines. The candiates have to sign a letter
    that states what the promise the must do what they said. no canidate
    can be tied to special intrest or lobyist,they will be sceen before
    they will have answer questions on how they would vote on current issues and explain why. the people will vote for the best one
    and that person goes to the next level. SO stop bitching and do something about this is your chance to turn the coutry back to ‘FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE’ dO IT NOW

    The Ten Commandments According to Obama

    I. Thou shalt have no God in America, except for me. For we are no longer a Christian nation and, after all, I am the chosen One. (And like God, I do not have a birth certificate.) SOURCE

    II. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, unless it is my face carved on Mt. Rushmore. SOURCE

    III. Thou shalt not utter my middle name in vain (or in public). Only I can say Barack Hussein Obama. SOURCE

    IV. Remember tax day, April 15th, to keep it holy. SOURCE

    V. Honour thy father and thy mother until they are too old and sick to care for. They will cost our public-funded health-care system too much money. SOURCE

    VI. Thou shalt not kill, unless you have an unwanted, unborn baby. For it would be an abomination to punish your daughter with a baby. SOURCE

    VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery if you are conservative or a Republican. Liberals and Democrats are hereby forgiven for all of their infidelity and immorality, but the careers of conservatives will be forever destroyed. SOURCE

    VIII. Thou shalt not steal, until you’ve been elected to public office. Only then is it acceptable to take money from hard-working, successful citizens and give it to those who do not work, illegal immigrants, or those who do not have the motivation to better their own lives. SOURCE

    IX. Thou shalt not discriminate against thy neighbor unless they are conservative, Caucasian, or Christian. SOURCE

    X. Thou shalt not covet because it is simply unnecessary. I will place such a heavy tax burden on those that have achieved the American Dream that, by the end of my term as President, nobody will have any wealth or material goods left for you to covet
    I would like to share this with those that haven’t already seen it.

      Hi Jeff,In reference to the 6th commandment. Should we tell the Obama girls the Dad Punished Mom by making her have them? In reference to the 9th commandment. As a heterosexual, Christian, white, male, I don’t descrininate, I hate everybody.

    If you people don’t think something like this can’t happen here, think again.
    Already things we did not think could happen 10 years ago have already happened and we (as a country) are in serious trouble already. We CANNOT keep on going on like nothing is happening. We must stand up and take action (in the upcoming election) and let the government know who is actually in charge! And it isn’t them, like they think. We need to take back OUR government!

  • Deb

    It it time to push the Senators and House members to help Orly Taitz, Leo Denofrio, and Phil Berg with their case. Look at how these people are bailing on Obama. I already sent my plea to Senator Bayh, don’t know what good it will do, but with the discontent amoung the ranks maybe we can get some support. After all, it was a Democrat in the Congress that went to Phil Berg with the initial information to begin with.

    WHat do you think? I don’t know where else to begin.

    Enjoy -Heaviest Element Yet Known to Science Discovered

    February 15, 2010 – 14:09 ET

    Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California has now identified with certainty the heaviest element known to science.

    The new element, Pelosium (PL), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

    These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

    Pelosium is inert, and has no charge and no magnetism. Nevertheless, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Pelosium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

    Pelosium has a normal half-life of 2 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a biennial reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

    Pelosium mass will increase over time, since each reorganization will promote many morons to become isodopes.

    This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

    When catalyzed with money, Pelosium becomes Senatorium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Pelosium since it

    • Warrior

      Finishing touches: has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

    • J C

      Hilarious! :)

    More fear mongering and pure BS from the ReSCUMlicans. Fear. Can’t you do any better than that? What is WRONG with a mandatory 401K or IRA? I’ve got one and I MAX out every year. Funny how the ReSCUMlicans rail and moan about welfare and such, but heaven forbid real people should be saving for retirement.

    • TIME

      Mary,
      You completely missed the point. So let me try and aid you with that.

      What Barry wants to do is “TAKE” your IRA or 401K and place it in a SS like unit. So by agreeing with it, what you are in fact saying is that you don’t care if the Government takes your money. Yet you just said you pay in and are doing so for YOUR own benifit.

      Do you really think thats in your best interest?

      Again Look at Social Security, its broken baddly, let alone MediCAID, same deal, look at the Post Office.
      Do you really want these great minds investing your money?

  • http://PersonLibertyDigest Dee

    If people really listened to what obama wanted to do to this country,
    they wouldn’t have voted for him, except for these dumbocrats and the
    people that ACORN frauduently signed up to vote for him.
    Probably can’t do anything about getting him out of office now (wish we could), will just have to vote him out in 2012, but how much damage will he have caused in the meantime.

    • Warrior

      He will attempt to make it insurmountable!

    Obama likes to play chess with our system so lets play.

    Write your representatives and demand they make it a law to produce your real birth certificate to run for president. After all, do you think the founders would have put that requirement in the constitution and not require proof? Only an a-hole wouldn’t show his real certificate.

    Then if he wants to run again he will have to produce it. To avoid being exposed as a fraud and thus erasing all he has done he will not run again.

    This is his Achilles heel.

  • Ed Hostilo

    This is a very interesting article, but I have to disagree with the alarmists! I am not a democrat, and I do not support Obama, However, What else can he do??? It is said that one trillion dollars will go from here to the moon and back. Just imagine that our combined national debt is now around 20 trillion, with unfunded liabilities of over an estimated 70 trillion or more. Whos kidding who??We are in deep doodoo my friends! If we give up any more of our tech secrets, and continue shipping our cottage industries off shore, then we will be working like the chinese for $1 a day, and will be lucky to get that. If we don’t act to force our congress to pass a bill to stop the wholesale dismanteling of our manufacturing sector then its not gonna matter anyway. We need to immediately pass a bill we could call the American content manufacturing bill that would ensure that at least 50% of every product sold on our shores is made here. Second we need to move all of the government workers back to our social security/medicare system, and force congress to stop spending the money that comes into these programs. Third we need a new law that no elected official or family member can enrich themselves while serving in our government. Fourth we need to stop the insanity we call wall street. They don’t produce anything but they are helping themselves to most of the investment dollars currently available. They are nothing but a middle man for people that wish to buy stock in companies, and the idea was that your purchase of a companies stock offered a low interest loan for that firms expansion. With all of the money being siphoned off , is it any wonder that no expansion is taking place?? And finally fifth, we must reign in our out of control congress once and for all, by requiring that no bill gets passed without funding readily available. Otherwise this insanity will continue to grow, and god help us all!

    • David Hall

      Sir, one or maybe two of your comments, I think might help. I really
      don’t know, because I’M TOO DUMB! to know. Just like many, many people
      on this board. I do know, Obama has to STOP THE SPENDING! No Brainer!
      (U CAN’T SPEND YOUR WAY TO REAL PROSPERITY AND GET OUT OF DEBT). CUT!
      CUT! CUT! TAXES ON THE RICH & SMALL BUSINESSES. No Brainer! (THEY ARE
      THE ONES’ WHO PRODUCE 70% OF THE JOBS). Completely, SHUT DOWN IRS! Replace it and them, No Brainer! (FLAT TAX, ACROSS THE BOARD FOR ALL
      AMERICANS, INCLUDING FOREIGNERS, matter of fact, tax them more). These
      are my common-sense, NO-BRAINER! solutions to our BIG, STUPID GOVERNMENT. I personally believe, it’s to late. Obama, Reed, Pelosi has spent too much, too fast and has already sent us over the cliff.
      Obama is NOT ABOUT SPREADING THE WEALTH AROUND, HE’S ALL ABOUT ENDING
      THE WEALTH! Mr. Ed Hostilo, I totally 100% agree with you on, GOD HELP

    The laws of Nature adapt through changes, slow and subtle. But Man abhors change because he feels jostled from his established way of life. The change is visible, abrupt and it hurts. But every dark cloud has its golden linings which become visible with time. Man is not that patient. You know the Tallipo plant waits for some 75 years to see its first blossom and fruition? Someday the world will acclaim Obama as the greatest of Presidents. He knows what he is doing. But the media is jealous of him, and fearful of the fact that he could win the second term.

    Good grief. Just more garbage to add fuel to the fire. Where is the name of our good Lord is good common sense? The name of the game is to keep Americans riled up. Keep Americans bickering amongst themselves. Talk about harbingers of dissent. I for one, will not believe everything I read, let alone hear. Like DaveH says–do the research, find out the information (truth) yourself.

    The Prez isn’t a black, he is a wormy looking crossbred reject. On the cannibal market, he would grade a utility carcass, bottom of grade scale except his nose and posterior, they are always hand picked. He should have made a steer, so there wouldn’y be any more genetic reproduction. He was born useless and is still useless. With all of his traveling and education what has he every produced that was usefol to society. He hate and denounxes the US, makes light of all the hard work and blood given to create a great contry and productive citizens. He has plans to ruin the nations and distribute wealth ,well have him and his family pay for all the b–ls–t trips we now foot and take away his and Michelle’s saalary and live on 24,000 dollars as everyone else does in the real world/.

        denisso, I have read your comments throughout this thread and have come to the conclusion that you believe any tripe your are fed by the liberal main stream media. You think we are all peasants. That shows you are an ambition-less lemming incapable of making decisions regarding your life and must rely on the all knowing politicians for guidance. Unfortunately you are typical of the vast numbers of mental midgets produced by the federally controlled education system foisted upon the country by the DOE. The states need to reassert their sovereign rights and tell the federal government to live within the constraints as proscribed in the Constitution. We,as a nation, need to return to the guidance given us by the founding fathers or this republic is doomed. But those of your ilk, socialist to the core, are all for that. You want to see all Americans reduced to the same level of poverty. You, collectively, need to extract your head from the sand, learn some critical thinking skills and grow a pair. Their is no longer any real distinction between the two main political parties and they all need replacing with people who know how to live within their means. Then we can begin the process of turning this country back into what our forefathers bequeathed us.

        • denniso

          You’re right, I am the product of the public school system, and about 40 yrs of independent reading and study…you, unfortunately, sound like the product of a 9th grade dropout and the consistent swallowing of the rightwing pap from your leaders like Limbaugh/Beck/Savage and other unamerican trash talkers.

            sell your cartoon books that you’ve been studing for 40 years, on EBAY! You make you some money, to send to the next fund raising Obama has. See how nice I am. Keep on educating yourselve, MAN

    I’ve heard about this quite a bit on the Neil Boortz show this past week…it’s not surprising that this admin wants to go after our retirement savings to salvage the out of control spending and debt they are creating. When will the people and country wake up to what is happening. Perhaps we need a military coup??

    we are treated like some cheap trailer park owner who can not wait for the next pay day for the lot[$taxes$] rent to come due,for his pay day. we become slaves of this type of out of control spending, because his spending his way into his future of his own design.will we become like argentina? when they take away all private pensions for them to make their agenda run. will we be those persons who will lose the very nation that we work so hard to maintain? louis

  • chuck b

    have any of you taken the time to look at the stimulus bill? i couldn’t believe how they have thrown the taxpayers money around, its mind bogling. these congressmen should be thrown in jail and now they are looking toward the pension fund to gather more.

    • George

      It’s shameful how the government wastes our money and runs up a debt with our name on it…..to be paid later. The only way the government can actually stimulate the economy is to take the chains (taxes and regulations) off businesses and entrepreneurs. That works. The rest of it is bureaucratic central planning, which has never worked very well, except when they get lucky and/or coincidentally other things start to work as well.

  • John

    Mr.Obama is a glorified nobody-no more in control of anything than the boy riding wooden horse on merry-go-round.
    Yesterday I saw a very enlightening bumper sticker in Texas-
    ‘If Voting Could Change Anything They’d Make It Illegal.’

    • George

      Ha. Gotta love Texas!

    • cr747

      John,,Obama breaks another record:::ACCORDING To a new Rasmussen reports poll–only 22% of Americans strongly approve of the job President is doing. That’s the lowest in his presidency!!!!!!!!!!!

  • George

    Wouldn’t a simpler alternative to the government confiscating our IRAs and 401Ks be for them to cut those of us (who have saved for our retirement using these tax-deferred instruments) off Social Security? Wouldn’t that accomplish their objective just as well without the same level of political fallout?

    • George

      God forbid…..

    I will be glad when this guy and his wife will be out of office. I am for privatising social security and state retirement. I have both.

  • TRUE PATRIOT

    The only official definition of Fascism comes from Benito Mussolini, the founder of fascism, in which he outlines three principles of a fascist philosophy.
    1.”Everything in the state”. The Government is supreme and the country is all-encompasing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.
    2.”Nothing outside the state”. The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.
    3.”Nothing against the state”. Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.
    The use of militarism was implied only as a means to accomplish one of the three above principles, mainly to keep the people and rest of the world in line. Fascist countries are known for their harmony and lack of internal strife. There are no conflicting parties or elections in fascist countries.
    Nazi Germany was extreme Fascism, better examples of fascist countries were Mussolini’s Italy, Iraq, Iran, and many middle eastern countries.

  • Virgil, NC

    It is amazing…the market collapse did not seem to injure the retirement plan for Congressional members. Many peasants are unaware that members of congress are not in Social Security.
    Bush administration attempted to offer we peasants 10% of what our lawmakers have 100% of, but socialists in both parties arrogantly rejected it. Socialistic news media sold the idea as bad, and now, for our good, government will likely pull retirement plans from our trembling hands also.
    Liberalism, socialism, communism = people control!
    …the Christian Right…am I to assume…the un-Christian Left?
    if Constitutional conservatives are the extreme Right,
    are American Socialists the extreme Left?

  • Monica

    This administration is a total waste of time for our country. They are all getting paid to destroy this country. The only people that is for them is the worshippers, welfare recipients, and the dumbest. All they want is to take from the workers and give to the lazy. They want to control everything we do. It isn’t as easy as they thought it would be. People are waking up.

    • denniso

      WOW!!! Another rightwing intellectual!

  • http://YAHOO JIM

    DENNISO, YOU REMIND ME OF A SHORT STORY, GOES LIKE THIS.
    A MAN WALKS INTO A HITEC BAR WHERE THE BARTENDER IS A ROBOT. THE ROBOT ASK HIM WHAT HE WANTS TO DRINK, HE ASK FOR A MARTINI AND THE ROBOT THEN ASK HIS IQ. THE MAN SAYS ABOUT 160 AND THE BARTENDER BEGANS TO TALK ABOUT INTRTPLANTERY TRAVEL AND NUCLEAR FUSSION. A COUPLE DAYS LATER THE MAN DECIDES TO TRY THE BAR AGAIN. AGAIN THE ROBOT ASK HIM WHAT HE IS DRINKING. “JACK ON THE ROCKS WILL BE FINE.” WHATS YOUR IQ THE ROBOT ASK? AROUND 100 HE SAYS. THEN THE BARTENDER BEGANS TO DISCUSS NAS CAR AND FOOTBALL. ON THE MANS THIRD VISIT THE ROBOT ASK HIM WHAT HIS DRINK WILL BE? BUDLIGHT TODAY. THE BARTENDER THEN ASK AGAIN HIS IQ. OH AROUND 50. THE ROBOT THEN LEANS OVER THE BAR AND SLOWLY ASK “ARE YOU STILL GLAD YOU VOTED FOR OBAMA”?
    DENNISO WHERE IS THIS BAR?

    • David Hall

      JIM! man that was funny, funny, funny! Where ever that bar is ole

      to a nut-school somewhere. HA! HA!

  • http://YAHOO JIM

    ON A DIFFERENT SUBJECT. EVER THOUGHT ABOUT SPENDING FOREVER WITH 72 WOMEN? VIRGINS AT THAT!! I THINK THESE FOOLS THAT THINK THIS JUST HAVE LITTLE PECKERS. I MEAN 72 WOMEN? DAMN, IF I WANTED TO DO A WILE E. COYOTE I WOULD ASK FOR FOREVER TO BE AT HEFF`S HOUSE.

    • David Hall

      Jim, I always heard it was 70. You know how it is, catch a fish that
      weighs 5 lbs. it will end-up weighing 50 lbs. HA! HA!

    • libertytrain

      Jim, It wasn’t 72 virgins. It was 72 Virginians (which caused a little sadness for this particular person who got to the “Pearly Gates” and met up with George Washington and 71 other Founders of this Country from Virginia that took him to task for his terrorist ways.. (from an email I received that explained it all in great detail)

  • http://YAHOO JIM

    OSOMABAMA REMINDS ME OF A GIRLFRIEND I HAD ONCE, SEEMS SHE COULDN`T GET HER WAY WITH EVERYTHING SHE WANTED AND SO SHE JUST LEFT. IF CONGRESS CAN HAVE A FEW MORE LIVE MEETING ON C-SPAN WITH HIM MABY HE WILL GET THE MESSAGE, JUST LEAVE AND GO ON BACK TO CHICAGO. BUT DON`T COUNT ON IT. ALSO HAD A WIFE ONCE FOR 25 YEARS, COULDN`T GET ALONG WITH HER OR HER BOYFRIEND SO I LEFT, HOPE CONGRESS DOESN`T. UNTIL OSOMABAMA CAME ALONG A WOMAN`S BREAST WAS THE HARDEST PLACE I EVER RESTED MY HEAD.

    • David Hall

      Damn, Jim you are about like me, when it comes to the women-folks. My
      second ex-wife run off with a popsicle salesman, he said he wanted to
      show her the world! I’ve been happy ever since with my third wife for
      more than 20 years. GOOD LUCK!

      • David Hall

        Plus, used too everytime them popsicle trucks used to come by and ring
        that bell, it would run me crazy! I hate cow bells, too.

  • Downsized

    They’ll probably try to slip this in a thousand page bill of some kind or other that has nothing to do with it, hoping it will go un-noticed given their track record so far. It all points to one thing that people will no longer be able to deny…socialist government control of the people. I really don’t know what this kinda stuff is going to do to our country.I just know it can’t be good.Just when you thing you’ve heard everything………….

  • Colo43

    i am sure i share a lot of others thoughts on this matter!
    The whole of his cabinet, including him have gone off the deep end. Control freaks at best would be a good word.
    we need to eliminate the lot of them, and turn things around to where its for the betterment of the people, not against them.

  • Hunter

    If Obama and company nationalize IRAs, 401Ks etc., that will be the beginning of the second revolution……the final straw.

    Are you ready?
