Murtha Reveals New Way Of Counting Votes

For my Democrat friends out there – do you really want to continue to be represented by these morons like Pelosi, Reid, Rangel, Frank and Murtha?  This video is so revealing of the absurdity that has now become the norm in Washington DC:

Government To Make Volunteering Mandatory

Community service has always been thought to be a volunteer outlet, but that will no longer be the case if the government succeeds with HR 1388.  This bill was introduced today in the house and you need to get on the phones to stop this Marxist move.  The bill’s short title is “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act” or you might hear it called the GIVE Act.  Sounds safe, but you need to read this bill to see what they have tucked inside.  I will give you the main points to be aware of:

1. There is language that says, “leverage Federal investments to increase State, local, business, and philanthropic resources to address national and local challenges.”  Leverage federal investments?!

2.  I have written about President Obama’s Brownshirts and his coming Civilian Force and here it is right in this bill, “It is the sense of Congress that the number of participants in the programs authorized under subtitle C, including the Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) and the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), should grow to reach 250,000 participants by 2014.”  Remember he wants this Civilian Corps as well-funded and strong as the military.  The language of the bill also has changed the Civilian Community Corps to National Civilian Community Corps.

3. The bill refers to uniforms and “camps.”  The wording is then revised from “camps” to “campus.” And the Director of said programs will choose the uniforms. Whenever I have volunteered I just wear what I want. This is sounding way too Communistic to me.

4.   The Government is going to require individuals to give 3 years of service which is not volunteer service. The government is going to make us serve. This is not shocking for those of us who listened to Obama during the campaign. Michelle Obama said he would not allow us to go back to the ways we lived. Obama told us that he would tell us where we could set our thermostats at.

5.  The bill includes, “expand and strengthen service-learning programs through year-round opportunities, including during the summer months, to improve the education of children and youth and to maximize the benefits of national and community service, in order to renew the ethic of civic responsibility and the spirit of community to children and youth throughout the United States.”  Translation:  Indoctrinate the children.  And this will be a year-round program so the kids are not free during the summer.  They must work – workers of the world unite!

The term “encourage” is used throughout the bill, but I do not trust the government on that one.  It will eventually be by force if it is required.  Call your representatives!

Fourth Bailout For AIG!?

The imbecilic TARP bailout’s poster child appears to be American International Group (AIG).  At least the poster child for what government interference creates.  If the first bailout did not work, what makes the government think further bailouts will work?  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  Now you know why I call our government insane.

Today the government has announced a revamped rescue package to AIG and plans to give the insurance giant another $30 billion like a revolving credit line.  The reason the company needs another bailout is because it has burned through the cash the tax payers have already given to it and cannot find any buyers for parts of the company that it has put up for sale.  Those pieces of the company need to be sold so that the government can be repayed for the current aid package which just happens to amount to $150 billion.  AIG lost $61.7 billion in the fourth quarter of last year.

AIG’s chairman and chief executive Edward Liddy was on NBC’s “Today” show this morning and said, “We’re going to be able to pay back the Federal Reserve. The new $30 billion is a standby line. It’s not necessarily something that we think we’ll have to draw on right away.”  I feel confident in that promise. 

Anybody else feeling hosed?

If You Don’t Think There Is A Financial Conspiracy, You’re Not Paying Attention

Before you think I’ve jumped off the deep end and that I am going to start rambling about the Illuminati and Bilderbergs, realize that the word “conspiracy” can be used in many ways.  A conspiracy mainly is an agreement by any number of people or groups to do something illegal or wrongful or commit some kind of subversive act.  Most informed Americans now know that the Federal Reserve controls the banking industry and our currency and they know that it is a privately owned entity that really does not have to do anything that the government tells it to do.

I was reading Bloomberg.com today because their story is top news on The Drudge Report and reading the title, “US Taxpayers Risk $9.7 Trillion On Bailouts As Senate Votes” shocked me and then I find in the article that the FED, the FDIC and the Treasury have pledged to provide $5.7 trillion if needed in this economic crisis after already spending and lending  $3 trillion.  This is not the conspiracy part and I actually had written a few months ago that the deficit was predicted to rise an additional $7.2 trillion over what it currently was at the time due to the TARP bailout and future promises and commitments.  The conspiracy comes in when learning that the remaining $8 trillion in these commitments in lending problems are exclusively under the authority of the FED and FDIC and they will not disclose the recipients’ names. 

This news follows revelations that the government paid $78 billion too much for bad debts and no one knows where that money went and we also know that no one knows what the banks did with the initial $350 billion in TARP funds they were given.  Democrat Senator Byron Dorgan from North Dakota said on February 3rd, “We’ve seen money go out the back door of this government unlike any time in the history of our country.  Nobody knows what went out of the Federal Reserve Board, to whom and for what purpose. How much from the FDIC? How much from TARP? When? Why?”   I have the same questions. 

On top of that, Bloomberg reports, “Commitments may expand again soon. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner postponed an announcement scheduled for today that was to focus on new guarantees for illiquid assets to insure against losses without taking them off banks’ balance sheets. The Treasury said it would delay the announcement until after the Senate votes on the stimulus package.”  Why is the government waiting to tell the American people what they plan to do with banks until after a vote on the porkulus bill?  The bank problem should be taken care of before anything else is done.  The Congress cannot pat itself on the back over rebates for buying cars and houses if the banks will not lend.  I heard this morning that every 13 seconds a house goes into foreclosure.  This TARP was meant to help fix that.

So is this incompetence or on purpose, as my use of the word conspiracy would indicate?  I KNOW the government is full of nincompoops, but they are not this incompetent.  Especially when you realize that the FED is not part of the  government.  What is going on here?  I truly believe there are people who want this country to become Marxist and the idiots are just following along.  Even Newsweek’s cover this week declares, “We Are All Socialists Now.”  Khruschev said socialism would come to us slowly.  The Fabian Society uses a turtle as their mascot because they believe in moving socialism slowly.  And possibly another conspiracy here:  I tried to post the link to The Fabian Society which was at fabian.org.uk and none of the URLs for this site can be found.  I tried both Google and Yahoo.  This page contains information, but even the link they give is “broken”.  Why are they hiding?

My point in all this is that we have indeed slipped into socialism.  Woodrow Wilson started the ball rolling by introducing Marxism and socialistic ideals into the government.  Franklin Roosevelt gave us The New Deal which introduced socialistic programs that drag our economy down to this day: welfare, social security, medicare. etc.  We had the socialistic Community Reinvestment Act introduced in 1977 with Jimmy Carter.  The Savings and Loan debacle started the idea that the government could bailout banks in the 80s.  And now we are here.  Both parties to blame.  I can only assume that this is on purpose.

Let me compare it to this analogy to make my opinion more clear.  I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God.  So I believe that God wrote the Bible through man.  That is the reason why the themes in the Bible run together and it is one cohesive piece.  The Bible never contradicts itself.  That is because there is one Author behind the Bible.  Now compare this to our slide into socialism.  It has happened over decades with most government entities participating.  Ronald Reagan would be the one exception.  So there must be some kind of conspiracy making sure this “theme” runs throughout our history.

This is a conspiracy to move us into socialism via the economy.  We must fight it whatever it may be.

King George Screws Us Again!

I know that it is not the most respectful action – calling President Bush King George – but if you are going to rule like a monarch then I have no respect for you.  If not for the surge being successful in Iraq and no terrorist attacks on American soil since 9/11, there would not be much good to say about this man who I put my faith in twice at the voting booth.  He has been wrong on so much.  He wants to give illegals amnesty, the beginning of the Iraq War was run horribly and Afghanistan was left too early, Harriet Myers, Dubai Ports Deal, leaving our border agents (Ramos and Campeon) to rot in jail without a pardon and now this bailout and stimulus mania.

Did anyone notice that the first stimulus checks sent out to the American people did nothing to stimulate the economy which now is in a deepening recession?  So why would a second stimulus work?  Did anyone notice that the first $850 billion bailout didn’t unfreeze the credit markets, so why would any other bailouts work?  Did anyone notice that the $850 billion bailout called TARP has become a slush fund for anything and everything?  Did anybody notice that forelcosures are still on the rise?  Florida’s Governor had to try to issue a foreclosure holiday so no one would be kicked out over Christmas.  Did anyone notice that we now have a Financial Czar instead of a Secretary of the Treasury?  Did anybody notice that King George thumbed his nose at us again and bailed out big auto?

I never thought I would be this successful in life.  I own banks, insurance companies, auto companies, etc.  The biggest nightmare is yet to come when the floor that the government keeps trying to prop up finally crumbles beneath us.  Common sense tells us that debt never works and one does not make money out of thin air.

Today, King George said that GM and Chrysler will get $13.4 billion in emergency loans with another $4 billion coming in February.  He said, “Under ordinary economic circumstances, I would say this is the price that failed companies must pay, and I would not favor intervening to prevent the automakers from going out of business. But these are not ordinary circumstances. In the midst of a financial crisis and a recession, allowing the US auto industry to collapse is not a responsible course of action.”

Uh huh…but bailing them out is responsible!? And where are all those concessions we were told the auto makers and their unions would be agreeing to in order to get the money?

The King continued, “My economic advisors believe that such a collapse would deal an unacceptably painful blow to hardworking Americans far beyond the auto industry. It would worsen a weak job market and exacerbate the financial crisis. It could send our suffering economy into a deeper and longer recession, and it would lead the next president to confront the demise of a major American industry in his first days of office.”

Any bets on how long it will take before we find out that these loans have done no good, the car companies come back for more money and many people lose their jobs anyway? I give it until March at best. The Chairman of GM, Rick Wagoner, made some comments today that sounded as if he did not know what the Bush administration’s plan entailed. Here are some of them: “The term sheet does call for, I think presidential designate is the word. I think you could call that, you know, the car czar, it could be a person or persons. And I’d have to say honestly we haven’t had a lot of conversations about the process that’s going to be used there so we’re going to see as we go along. We didn’t engage in any extensive negotiations around that topic at all.”

Okay, my eyes are bleeding here because my brain wants to explode. IS WAGONER SAYING THERE WERE NO MAJOR TALKS ABOUT THIS PLAN? HOW WERE CONCESSIONS DISCUSSED THEN? Sorry about the shouting, but I am positively beside myself with the actions of this government. I keep calling for us to throw the bums out, but dimwits keep putting these same guys back in office. I listened to Sean Hannity’s “Man On The Street” segment yesterday and I still am astonished at the complete ignorance of Obama voters. And no one, not on the radio or friends that I have asked, can answer why they like Obama, what he is going to do as President or the main reason they voted for him. At least nothing substantial – “change” is not substantial.

And it was not lost on me that King George released the news of this auto bailout on Friday before Christmas. They want to keep the American people in the dark. And sadly, I think that is where most want to stay.

The Campaign Vocabulary Spin

As the presidential campaign comes to an end, I have started reflecting on the different verbages that have been spun in the media and both Obama’s and McCain’s campaigns.  Most of the spin has come from the liberals.  Here are a few of my favorites with the spun words and then what I interpret the vocabulary to mean:

1.  Tax cut – Coming from McCain it really means just that.  Coming from Obama it means tax credit which in actuality is welfare for non-tax payers (40% of people).

2.  Misleading – Lie or rather liar, liar pants on fire.

3.  MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN – biased liberal media rooting for Obama.

4.  Gaffe – not a stupid slip of the tongue, actual truth being spoken inadvertantly.

5.  Investment – spending.

6.  Shifting stance – flip flop.

7.  Voter fraud – cheating.

8.  Polls – a way to sway elections and unreliable.

9.  Spreading the wealth – Marxism and put more bluntly: stealing

Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.  Please feel free to add your own observations.
