Senator Scott Brown’s American Truck, the Cargo Cult and a Siren’s Song – The BOPAC Report

February 25, 2010

Senator Scott Brown’s American Truck, the Cargo Cult and a Siren’s Song

Recently, Republican Senator Scott Brown worried many of his supporters by voting in favor of cloture, moving Sen. Harry Reid’s  ‘Jobs’ bill forward in the U.S. Senate.  Given that Sen. Brown’s campaign had in fact focused on his independence in the Massachusetts legislature, his vote did not surprise me.  However in light of Washington Democrats’ oblivious lockstep march towards the tried and failed ideals of socialism, I held out some hope that Sen. Brown would recognize that bi-partisanship could wait until Blue Dog Democrats wrest some control of the Democratic Party away from the radical left.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s fine to debate the limits of social and economic responsibility under the Constitution in a bi-partisan manner, but to negotiate with those attempting to undermine the Constitution and American sovereignty is pointless. America needs to win.

It’s going to take a sound thumping of both ‘progressive’ Democrats and ‘progressive’ light Republicans in 2010, if the American experiment, our representative republic, has any chance of surviving.  If fact, it may already be too late unless real changes begin to be made in the psyche of ordinary Americans. The problem is that people tend to vote for who and what they perceive as being in their own self-interest.  I would suggest that many of these voters are in fact not voting in their self-interest, but are answering a siren’s song – a song sung mainly by Obama and the Democratic Party.

It’s a song meant to blind Americans to the reality of what’s required for sustainable, fiscally responsible government; and for that matter, the requirements for individual fiscal responsibility. It’s a song meant to sear the flesh of Americans with distorted notions of the responsibilities of our federal government. It’s a song meant to establish the mindset of entitlement from cradle to grave. It’s a song that makes it politically incorrect to urge personal responsibility or suggest that consequences might fall on those seduced by shortsighted destructive Democrat rhetoric. It’s a song that ultimately leads to less liberty and freedom. 

The Democratic Party has always been concerned with creating and maintaining the dependence of voters, setting themselves up as the protectors of entitlements.  Even when they fail to achieve what they have promised, they milk their efforts for every drop of voter loyalty they can get and vilify anyone daring to look at the true fiscal ramifications of their actions. It’s been that way for years.

However today’s Democrats take it even further, they know full well what they are promising/creating is not sustainable and will bankrupt the nation. (Cap & Trade, Stimulus, Bailouts, Government takeovers, Healthcare, etc.) Yet they continue to attempt to ram their ideas down the throats of Americans even though large majorities dislike them.

Could it really be they believe any legislative success, no matter how damaging to America’s economy, will help their own political futures in the 2010 elections?  Get past the elections and then find a way to blame George Bush, Republicans, or even Ahmadinejad when the house of cards collapse. Some have suggested their true strategy is cause the collapse of the entire system; then take over and start over with something much less a meritocracy, something with more centralized control, something more akin to socialism.  Either way, America suffers.

Look at Social Security and Medicare.  This year Social Security began paying out more in benefits than it receives in tax revenues. It’s clearly not sustainable. Social Security in dire shape and action needs to be taken yesterday. But, Obama knows that people who have paid Social Security taxes for their entire working life will punish anyone who dares change the system in order to make it more sustainable for future generations?  Social Security is a sacred cow that can’t be touched without political consequences being paid at the next election.  Democrats cannot afford to add to voter anger right now about Social Security.  Not yet

So what do they do? They ignore Social Security and set off to create an even bigger entitlement.

What will happen IF Government run healthcare becomes a reality?  Instead of one or two sacred cows, they are creating a sacred herd to be fed by small business and taxpayers?

Democrats are selling Obama’s healthcare program by saying it will lower healthcare costs.  They know it will not.  You cannot insure 30 million more people and expect costs to go down.  The only things that will go down are the quality of care and the ability of the patient to determine their own treatment. Rationed care will be the outcome and it will suck to be old.

Once Obamacare is put in place and health workers unionized, a new self-serving voting block will be created that will be able to block everything they oppose regardless of how it effects ordinary Americans.  A unionized government run healthcare will be able to prevent politicians who they perceive as threats from ever being elected and prevent meaningful changes from taking place.  It happened in the UK.

How many unionized health workers would emerge in a government run healthcare system?  Healthcare is 20% of America’s economy – tens of millions?

It really is like Benjamin Franklin said at the founding of this nation:

“When the people find they can vote themselves money,
that will herald the end of the republic.” Benjamin Franklin

From what I can surmise, millions of Americans who pay absolutely no federal income tax already have the expectation that Obamacare will be free for them.  I see few people who actually know the details of what is being proposed.   How it will be paid for seems to be of even less interest to them.  Obama and Democrats have effectively been making the case to non-taxpayers that ‘money fairies’ will fly out of the butts of ‘rich fat cats’ to pay for healthcare for them.

There is no display of awareness among non-taxpayers that government cannot continue to raise taxes on small business owners.  Eventually, business will say enough.  They will be forced or choose to sell/close their businesses, take their nest eggs, retire and watch the bewilderment on the faces of Americans wondering where the jobs are.  There will be a point where it is just not worth the price of having to deal with an overreaching government and selfish labor unions demanding higher and higher benefits without regard to how it effects business viability. 

America should be in a recovery with job creation by now, but uncertainty about higher taxes and restrictions coming out of the Obama administration has everyone in the business world gun-shy. (That’s the same reason several health insurance providers are now raising their rates, they can’t predict what will happen tomorrow.)

In international development work today, the dominant idea is sustainability.  And, the most important factors that predict project sustainability are when people in communities have identified their own needs and when they have a real stake in the project (money, labor, time, etc.).  Of course, free projects seem most attractive, but free frequently fails in development work. If communities themselves have identified the problem (as opposed to having an outside ‘expert’ telling the community what they need) and they have a sufficient stake, personal investment  – they are more likely to become empowered and take responsible for both the project and consequences. 

(It’s like the requirement for a down payment when purchasing a house. It’s much more likely that such a person will do all they can to make payments so they don’t lose their investment.)

Free has been tried over and over in development work. It fails over and over. In International Development simply throwing money at problems does not work. If fact, frequently it does more harm than good. The worst outcome one can imagine is the ‘Cargo Cult’ mentality that arose in the Pacific shortly after World War II. Unfortunately, it looks like many Americans are well on their way down that same road and politicians are encouraging it.

During World War II, Americans and Japanese forces brought millions of tons of material and lots of manpower to the Pacific Islands. Most villagers had little awareness of the how, where, or why the goods came to their islands. The goods came and came and expectations rose that goods would keep coming even after the troops left the islands.  ‘Cargo Cults’ had existed before WWII but they had a major revival after the war in the Pacific.  Instead of relying on themselves, looking to themselves, making decisions based on their own situations, Pacific Island villagers became seduced by the hope of easy pickings. “To attract further deliveries of goods, followers of the cults engaged in ritualistic practices such as building crude imitation landing strips, aircraft and radio equipment, and mimicking the behaviour that they had observed of the military personnel operating them.”

How is that different from the ritualistic practice of voting for a particular Party in hopes of getting something for free? Or consumers holding off making purchases they need in order to wait for some sort of  ‘cash for clunkers’ government deal? Or Cash for Caulkers? The seduction of free stuff falling from the sky with no effort on anyone’s part is tempting I suppose. Free healthcare, free social security, no hard decisions, fat pensions subsidized by ordinary taxpayers, cash for clunkers, no personal responsibility – wow that sounds too good to be true.  It is.  There is always a price that has to be paid.

However, it seems that more and more Americans could really care less as long as someone else pays their way through life, as long as benefits continue to drop from the sky.  The song is strong, hard to resist, and it impearls our Republic’s future.

‘Entitlements’ cause people to vote for the politicians making unrealistic promises and to fear those who speak of mundane things like balanced budgets.  They cause people to become complacent (lazy) and selfish. (I have a cousin that wouldn’t consider starting to look for work until her unemployment actually ran out.) They cause voting blocks to form that look almost always at what they can receive and almost never at what they may need to sacrifice for the well being of the Republic. (AARP, NAACP, ACORN, SEIU) They make it possible for politicians to attack other rights and freedoms vis-à-vis the dependency on a particular entitlement such as government run healthcare should it be enacted (guns, smoking, drinking, eating habits, etc.).  When one is in the trance of the siren’s song, it’s easy to pick one’s pocket. Furthermore, ‘entitlements’ influenced/controlled by politicians make individuals afraid to rock the boat out of fear they may lose benefits.  (Look what happened to Larry Sinclair and his Social Security Disability for continuing with his allegations that he and Obama did drugs and engaged in consensual sex in 1999.)

Americans have to know (on some level) that the nation is at or near bankruptcy; and believing in Obama’s ‘flying money fairies’ does not change reality. Our Republic is just there – a shining beacon on the hill and all it requires is for Americans to choose Representatives who most closely represent our aspired to values and principles, but if enough of us answer the siren’s song…you know the rest.

If people who receive or may receive benefits from the government in the future were to actually vote their own best interest – they would be looking closely at the sustainability of government programs (the long view), the proper role of government, Constitutional limitations, the health of the Republic, effects on business/taxpayers, fairness, our values and principles, protecting individual rights, freedoms and responsibilities.   They would not be voting based on who promises to give them the most.

They would recognize that the government must act in a fiscal responsible manner if critical programs are to survive in the future for the disabled, infirm and those who truly find themselves in situations requiring assistance.

One day every person will need a hand up and a hand needs to be there to help – not just one extended in exchange for a vote. (I certainly have needed that hand in my lifetime.)

There is really only one way that might encourage people to take their own power of personal initiative back and protects their rights/freedoms from government and politicians.  It is a way that encourages people in moderate need to rely on their friends and families – and illuminates the importance of both.  It is a way that encourages the restoration of individual dignity.  It’s not PC – not because it’s not – but because politicians don’t want it to be. However, if enacted, it would actually free politicians to vote for what’s in the best long-term interest of their constituents.  It requires a choice to be made by the individual as to when or if they reach their hand up for assistance from the government.

Imagine what would happen if when a person went on welfare, received worker’s compensation, unemployment, social security, opted for a ‘public healthcare option’ or received some other government benefit – they surrender the privilege of voting. (Unless they were determined to be permanently disabled or permanently unable to be gainfully employed.)

Wouldn’t that encourage injured workers (citizens) to come back to work earlier or unemployed workers to look a little harder? Maybe hunting season isn’t as important as voting.  (For some it wouldn’t matter and they probably shouldn’t be voting anyway.)

Wouldn’t it encourage people to get off the public dole as quickly as they could?

Wouldn’t it encourage older citizens of sufficient means to not draw social security at all?  Social Security was set up as a safety net, not a retirement plan.

Wouldn’t it encourage some senior citizens old enough to draw social security but in good health to delay leaving the work force?

Wouldn’t it encourage older small business owners to stay in business a few years longer?

Wouldn’t it allow politicians to actually do their jobs and make such programs sustainable without fear of the next election? 

It’s like the Republic is Sen. Scott Brown’s old American truck going up a steep mountain.  The engine powering the truck is small business and taxpayers. And every other person the truck passes is encouraged by Scott’s Democratic friends in the Senate to climb in back for a free ride with the only charge being a pat on the back and the promise of their vote.  Pretty soon the truck, the Republic, has millions of people piled in its bed. The tires start to bulge and engine begins to sputter. The gas tank is almost empty and not one will get out of the truck first to help push.  Not one union, not one person wants to be first to help Scott Brown or his American truck by pulling their own weight while others ride.  Pretty soon the truck’s tires explode, the engine’s timing belt breaks, a piston rod snaps – everything stops – with the exception of the finger pointing at Scott Brown for not maintaining his (our) American truck.

Dear Senator Scott Brown:  The time for bi-partisanship is not yet here, not until the Blue Dogs restore the Democratic Party to something that is not trying to destroy the Constitution and our freedoms.  Republicans should proudly take the title of being ‘the Party of kNOw’ because they know what’s going on.

I do realize that there may be a few Constitutional problems with limiting people’s ability to vote. However, if Obama can so easily flaunt Article II, Section I of the Constitution that requires every person who is elected to the Office of the Presidency to be a ‘natural born citizen’, what’s the problem?

Note:  I need to credit Rush Limbaugh for mentioning the cargo cults recently on the radio. Rush’s comment planted the seed for this article. 

Rush’s face is on Janet Napoliano’s golf balls!

Just like Obama is not Malcolm X - Obama is not a "Natural Born Citizen"! Obama may look like Malcolm X and Obama may be a "Citizen"; but being a "Citizen" does not necessarily mean that Obama is a "Natural Born Citizen"! Joint Chiefs of Staff’s new mottos: Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil & Don’t rock the boat!

Heads In The Sand - Obama's Supporters

Play: Ostrich Sound

Yesterday I was listening to Rush Limbaugh and one of his callers confirmed what I believed.   Most of my friends and family who are in the military and law enforcement all listen to Fox and Talk Radio.  What’s Obama going to do when the FBI, Law Enforcement, and the Military say ENOUGH?   I urge everyone in the military to contact Dr. Orly Taitz.  Maybe we won’t lose the war in Afghanistan if the military makes sure they are being led by someone who is eligible to hold the Office of the Presidency.  I believe it is the sworn duty of every member of the military to make sure they are not following “unlawful orders”.

From Rush Limbaugh:

FBI Tells Caller: Listen to Rush

October 22, 2009

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Marie in Los Angeles. Hello and welcome to the EIB Network.  Great to have you here.

CALLER:  Yes, hi, Rush.

RUSH:  Hi.

CALLER:  Thanks for taking my call.  I’m a faithful listener for years.  I just wanted to make another comment about the salaries Feingold (sic) is telling them what they can pay their executives.

RUSH:  Feinberg.

CALLER:  Feinberg, I’m sorry.  No one is questioning Obama about this.  When he took over the banks and the automobile companies, he said, “I don’t want to run these companies.” He said, “We’ll just be shareholders.”  See, it’s our money, the taxpayers’ money.  He said, “I don’t want to, and I’ll give the money back.”

RUSH:  I remember it.  “I don’t want to run these companies. I got a war to win. I don’t want to run companies.”

CALLER:  Why aren’t they questioning him?  Because when Joe Wilson called him a liar, his whole campaign was on untruths.  I get so upset when I hear this, that when they wanted to pay the money back but he said, “Oh, no! We have a stress test.  We have to wait and see whether you have enough money before you can go back and run a bank,” and no one is following this.  He’s going to continue to run these banks.  This is what he wanted to do in the first place.  And so they should really call him down.  There’s nobody to talk to him about it.

RUSH:  Now —

CALLER:  I called Congress.  Who do you talk to when the top people you can’t trust?  You know, I called the FBI, and you know what they told me?

RUSH:  No.

CALLER:  They said, “Watch Fox cable and listen to talk radio,” and then I called another time —

RUSH:  Wait a minute! Wait a minute. Wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.  Whoa, whoa, whoa.  Back up.  You called the FBI?

CALLER:  Well, I wanted to find out what was going on with ACORN, the 14 states that they had arrested these people.

RUSH:  What FBI office did you call?

CALLER:  Los Angeles.

RUSH:  And they told you to listen to Fox News and talk radio?

CALLER:  Talk radio.

RUSH:  To find out what was going on?

CALLER:  Yes.  And the next time I called you know what they said?

RUSH:  No.

CALLER:  Listen to talk radio and watch Glenn Beck.  And they said, “We all watch Glenn Beck.”

RUSH:  That’s what they told you at the FBI?

CALLER:  Exactly.  And so when I wanted to find out they said call the Justice Department, what was going on.  Well if you can’t trust the Justice Department, who do you talk to?  Who do you talk to? You can’t trust the top. I called John Boehner, because he’s the one you can really talk to. I said, “You’ve got to tell them that Obama is going after the Internet and talk radio.  They’ve gotta stop it.”

RUSH:  And what did he say?

CALLER:  Well, I talked to the office. They said, “Yeah, we know what’s going on,” and when I called the FBI they said, “We know what’s going on, but we can’t do anything because the Secret Service will say they’re in charge.”  This is what’s going on right now.

RUSH:  You know what, folks?  I feel like I’m in that balloon flying over Colorado.

CALLER:  They all know what’s going on, but who do you go to?  I feel like screaming.

RUSH:  The woman calls the FBI (laughing) to find out what’s going on. The FBI says, “Listen to Limbaugh. Watch Fox”?  Look, to your original point here that Obama said he didn’t want to run companies, and yet he’s running companies. Don’t forget what I said at the top of the show: One of the primary ingredients to any president’s long-term success is the deniability.  The Drive-Bys are doing very well getting the story out, “Hey, this Feinberg guy acted totally on his own.  Obama is so busy working on Afghanistan, he didn’t even know.”  Now, let’s take ’em at their word just for the moment.  Obama didn’t know, okay?  So Feinberg says, “Hey, Wall Street, 90% you’re gone.”  Has Obama said, “I think that’s a little high. Uh, I wish I’d have been consulted on that. Uh, we’re going to roll that back to 88%.”  Has he said anything?  He ordered this, but they’re trying to give him deniability.

August 4, 7:12 PM

Watch out for those neighborhood canvassers from “Organizing for America” and “ACORN,” the ones whose stealth, grassroots efforts got Obama elected in the first place.  As very observant reader “Bob” commented on this site earlier today:

“Bob – Today(Aug 3) I heard on Rush’s radio that the W.H. has put out a request for their denizens to report any negative talk about their health plan. Maybe these citizens will be the first to benefit from the plan. Euthanasia is a benefit, right?”

Yes, and you will even be entitled to a “do-it-yourself” kit, including that quick-acting med “Die-agara,” for when “the moment is right.”

And when grandma goes off her rocker, don’t even bother getting the Fire Dept. to put her back.  Just roll her up in the carpet and put her in the new, red-colored “Comrade Recycling” bins that will be located on every street corner.  After all, you’d hate to have any usable parts go to waste.  She has that beautiful white hair, and it will save you from prying that gold wedding ring from her rigormortis-stiffened finger.  In fact, throw in any of grandma’s belongings that you don’t want, and they’ll recycle that too!

The activist Left can’t stand competition. Last week in Long Island, NY, opponents of the Democrats’ government health care takeover legislation outnumbered Obama supporters ten to one. The Tea Party activists toted American flags and signs that read “WE CAN’T AFFORD FREE HEALTH CARE” – prompting one foe to stalk into the peaceful crowd, gesticulate wildly, and shout unintelligible threats at the top of his lungs.

The same Democrat Masters of Astroturf who encouraged their followers to use “in your face” tactics during the campaign season now balk at vocal opposition from their fiscally conservative neighbors and co-workers…. Continue Reading

Media Blackout on Obama eligibility dates back to November

By Douglas Hagmann & Judi McLeod Tuesday, August 4, 2009

Do you remember Watergate? Thirty-five years ago this Sunday, U.S. President Richard M. Nixon submitted his letter of resignation for his role in the scandal. There was the crime – the break-in, and then there was the cover-up by the Nixon administration. There were threats, media manipulation and disinformation. It was the cover-up more than the crime itself in the aftermath of the Watergate break-in that led to the downfall of the Nixon administration. It was a politically critical time for our country, but we survived because of the strength of the U.S. constitution.

Now, we potentially face a new constitutional crisis stemming from the refusal of Barack Hussein Obama to produce a one-page document that would confirm his eligibility to hold the highest office in the land. Eligibility to hold office is not a “fringe” matter, but a core constitutional issue that lies at the very heart of a growing controversy.

Although we do not have the birth certificate or proof of ineligibility, the Northeast Intelligence Network and Canada Free Press have documentation of a cover-up relating to the issue of Obama’s eligibility to hold office. The proof we possess not only exposes a well orchestrated cover-up, but also provides critical insight into why the topic of Obama’s eligibility has failed to gain traction in the corporate media.

The Northeast Intelligence Network and Canada Free Press are in possession of extremely sensitive investigative documents, including a stunning written admission by a nationally known talk show host stating that he was threatened with his career – or worse – should he talk about the issue of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth records to a national audience. This document was obtained on December 10, 2008, and provides explicit detail of a “gag order” imposed on this host before and immediately following the national election last November.

After receiving and authenticating the document, US based veteran private investigator Douglas J. Hagmann opened a full scale investigation into the media blackout, with specific emphasis on tracing the blackout origins to those issuing them. This investigation was conducted in conjunction with Judi McLeod, founding editor of Canada Free Press and Brian Thompson, CFP Information Technology chief following a meeting near Toronto, Ontario last December. At that meeting, it was decided to keep the existence of the document secret until additional evidence could be obtained.

Today, after an extensive eight month investigation, the Northeast Intelligence Network and Canada Free Press are breaking their silence and revealing explosive information about a widespread cover-up that began at the earliest stages of the Obama presidential campaign. The cover-up traces back to some of the most powerful and influential people in the U.S. and continues today. …Continue Reading

Debunking Obama’s thugs in the media

Recently Obama’s thugs in main stream media came up with this Bomford report in order to stop my efforts in exposing and prosecuting Obama. Though typically I don’t have time to waste on each and every dumb obot, since it got to National TV and my children”s friends called my children, I’ll spend a few minutes to debunk the obots:

1. Kenya became an independant country in 1963, not 1964. The seal of Kenya was correct.

2. More then one person had certified copies of this document.

3. the document was not issued at birth, but rather was a certified copy obatained in1964, when Kenya became independent

4. The documents from that time would not show Zanzibar, but rather Kenya

5. Bomford report was created to try to discredit my efforts

6.lastly, I am not supposed to waste my time and money on this issue, Obama us the one who is supposed to provide evidence of legitimacy

7. Kenyan BC provides more info than the piece of garbage Obama posted on the n et, which doesn’t have the name of the hospital, name of the doctor or signatures.

8. Chioumi Fukino and Obama and all their Nazi Brown Shirts in the main stream media need to give it a rest and provide an original hospital BC and the corresponding  big thick hospital Birthing  file from the Kapiolani hospital. If they don’t have such a file, all of them need to resign immediately or they will be prosecuted for massive fraud and treason to this Nation.

Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair:  Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?

By Joy Tiz Tuesday, August 4, 2009

I can’t get a bead on Larry Sinclair.  I’ve read his book, Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair:  Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder?  I’ve watched his videos on YouTube.  My normally dependable women’s intuition is not sending me conclusive cues about Sinclair’s veracity.  On the other hand, I have no question about Barack Obama’s mendacity.

Sinclair is conspicuously candid about his ignominious narrative.  He conceded his copious incarcerations early on.  Sinclair has been in and out of jail on assorted charges of bamboozlement—including passing bad checks; about which he has been forthright.

The president, however, has yet to release his college records, medical records, law school records, Illinois State Bar application, early school records, his passport or his birth certificate.…
….But we have far more knowledge about Sinclair’s past than we do about Obama’s.

Sinclair asserts that he met Obama twice in 1999.  Their rendezvous was orchestrated by limo driver, Jagir Multani.  Sinclair avers that Multani may have been in the United States illegally.  Sinclair alleges that Obama smoked crack cocaine and directed Sinclair to administer a Lewinsky—which Sinclair obliged.  According to Sinclair, the following day Obama materialized at Sinclair’s hotel to solicit supplementary Lewinskyization.  That was the entirety of their affair, per Sinclair.  Expecting to be serviced with no impulse to reciprocate is certainly consistent with Obama’s consummate narcissism.

Sinclair has made capacious efforts to get his story out and his narrative has been unchanging.  It would seem the sole witness who could corroborate the limo story would be the missing Multani….

…But he is manifestly more frank about his life story than Obama has been. As with the birth certificate matter, Obama’s lack of candor cannot but lead to supposition….

…Obama has confessed to using illegal drugs his younger days (Dreams, Pg.  93). Much of Dreams is unadulterated fabrication, thus, we have no way of knowing how profligate Obama’s drug abuse was, nor has he released his medical records….

…Non-Obamanutz should find Sinclair’s book a worthy read.…Continue Reading Complete Article and Comments

Obama Can’t Criticize the Iranian Election – Ahmadinejad Might Ask Obama Where’s The Birth Certificate – The BOPAC Report

June 15, 2009

The BOPAC Report:

Iran held a historic election and it appears that reform minded voters came out by the millions. Unfortunately, a vote for former Prime Minister Mir Hossein Moussavi must have counted half as much as a vote for Ahmadinejad, given that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad declared that he won the Presidency of Iran in a landslide.

Even though it looks like there were serious problems with the Iranian election that should be investigated, it is unlikely that any legitimate investigation will take place.  Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has backed the outcome of the election, so that’s that.

It will be interesting to see how forcefully Obama will contest the apparent thwarting of the will of Iranian people.  I would love to see America stand with moderate voices in Iran but Ahmadinejad has the perfect answer to every accusation Obama  might make challenging the legitimacy of the Iranian Election.

Ahmadinejad-Birth-Certifica

Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” has once again been pulled off of shelf following the senseless attack on the Holocaust Memorial by one man filled with hate for the Jewish people and Israel.  Regrettably, writers on a few well known internet sites, a few “newscasters” and several others in the mediawho appear to take pride in their ability to distort facts and people’s motivations/opinions/beliefs in ways that serve their (or the people they support) purposes – are in high gear attacking ordinary Americans who have questions about Barrack Obama, trying to somehow equate them with the Holocaust Memorial shooter.  I’m sure most people see through these attempts and would agree that this purported “journalistic” reporting/commentary is neither journalism nor responsible.

What it is-is simply the “drive-by media’s” attempt to shape the news and portray anyone who disagrees with Obama as a hate filled racist bigot.  This type of reporting and commentary is despicable “ends justifies the means” activity engaged in by people who surely know better.  The vast, vast majority of people who oppose Obama are not racists or bigots – and the media knows it.  They are Americans (from all backgrounds and races) who want politicians, the Congress and Obama to follow the Constitution, support fair free market principles, and to be fiscally responsible and disciplined.  They are Americans who vote, pay taxes and believe that non-violence remains the only acceptable way to effectuate change.

The current feeding frenzy was set off by the despicable act of one crazed man.  Raum Emanuel says, “You never want to let a serious crisis to go to waste.”  However, many surrogates and many in the media take Emanuel’s advice to the extreme. They don’t want to let “any act” go to waste that they can springboard off of to portray people they disagree with (or those who cross/impede their goals) in as negative light as they can.

A recent example is the constant attack of Governor Sarah Palin and her family.  During the election, we all heard (over, over, and over) of ethics allegations raised against Governor Palin.  Well it seems that Governor Palin has been cleared of ever single one.  Where is the media?  Oh, they are busy using David Letterman’s recent attack on Governor Palin’s 14 year old daughter.  Yet there is no real condemnation from the media, no demand to fire David Letterman as would be the case for any “conservative” media personality – just reinforcement of negative perceptions against Governor Palin and her family.  What did CBS do to Don IMUS?  Sorry Don, you’re out of here.

While I’m fairly sure that most members of the media do not have pocket versions of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals with them, if one does a minimal amount of responsible, balanced reading from various sources, they would soon find that what is being reported as factual and complete new stories by the main stream media are actually stories missing important information.  Stories that are missing important information that can change the meaning and/or inferences are not journalism.  Such stories are the very definition of news bias.

My wife listens to National Public Radio (NPR) every morning, so I have a valuable daily opportunity to observe the subtle ways by which the “news” is shaped by a seemly “objective” news source.  Many times tiny bits of information (facts, opinions, parts of opinion, context, parts of context) are left out, maybe a person being interviewed to give an opposing view regarding an issue is not the best spokesperson available (or their credibility has already been impugned to some degree), or the emphasis/order of presentation directs the listener to certain conclusions – each is a way to shape the news.  I’ve always hoped that NPR was not engaged in the intentional shaping of the news (as opposed to factual reporting); however the more I listen, the more I’m convinced that they are.  That’s too bad because they all have such nice calm morning voices that exude sincerity for what they are saying.

(I’m sure that’s how Obama has gotten away with so much of his deception thus far.)

ObamaPlusTruthEquals

Of course, some in the media and those who are Obama’s surrogates are always attacking conservative commentators/entertainers like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage or Glenn Beck because they are well known, influential and have large audiences.  It’s interesting to note that recently many have been trying to portray Rush Limbaugh as a spokesperson for conservatives and the Republican Party.  This is total slight of hand. I suppose they figure that if they can firmly establish a link to Republicans with Rush, then a tarnished Rush will keep voters (who sincerely believe that Obama and many Democrats are out of control) from voting Republican out of embarrassment. Stand by Mr. Limbaugh because, as usual, the Sh^% is coming your way.

Rush Limbaugh is the biggest danger to “them” because his audience is growing. It’s all a disheartening game that the media and politicians play.  However, I have not heard any of these men urge people to violence of any kind. In fact, Glenn Beck takes care to urge conservatives to immolate people like Gandhi and Martin Luther King – speak up with conviction – don’t sit in the back of the bus – don’t react with violence. What I hear from Rush, Hannity, Savage and Beck is that they want Americans to open their eyes and ears and truly behold what is before them.  They seem to trust that given full and complete information, Americans will come to their own conclusions – and that’s okay.

That used to be the proper role of the media but now it falls upon others such as radio personalities and those active on the internet.  They may use harsher words and speak louder, but they need to in order to break through the public’s perception of legitimacy regarding the old main stream media.  Thankfully the public’s perceptions of the media are crumbling.

The truth is that right now there is no clear leader in the Republican Party and most people know that. I will vote for candidates of either (any) party who support the Constitution, who refrain from marching us to a mediocre America through socialism, who strongly support the rights of the individual and States, and who will exercise fiscal responsibility.  I will be voting for a lot of challengers in 2010.  I think a lot of other Americans will be doing the same.

Most Radio Talk Show hosts are seasoned professionals who have thick skins regarding unfair criticism and they can take whatever is thrown their way.  Unfortunately, ordinary citizens who are just now finding their voices are not used to being unfairly tarnished and attacked.  It is important that they, that we, toughen up our skin and keep speaking out against injustice; that we keep taking to the streets in peaceful “Tea Parties”, that we write our Representatives, that we do not cower.

It is well known that Obama and his surrogates such as ACORN are well versed in Saul Alinsky’s Rules that are intended to intimidate and break down people’s resolve to do what they believe in.   We all need to understand what will be coming our way and we each need to commit to having our voices heard.  When Mr. Alinsky’s Rules refers to the enemy – that’s you, me, my family, Rush, Hannity, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and anyone else who is not part of this D. C. power establishment who stands up and says, THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

Alinsky’s rules are ruthless and you can imagine how they work. Here are the rules to be aware of:

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

Alinkiy’s Rule 5 is the one that can most easily intimidate ordinary people who have legitimate questions about Obama, questions about his birth certificate, questions about socialism, questions about Larry Sinclair, questions about out of control spending, questions about the government take over of GM, questions about closing GM dealerships based on who they made political contributions to, questions about setting aside the rights of secured creditors to do it, questions about Obama apparently firing the Inspector General of Americorps in retaliation, questions about the real consequences of cap and trade, questions about the real consequences of government run healthcare, questions about the intention to run private health insurance out of business, etc., etc., etc.

Americans want their questions answered but they don’t want to be ridiculed. They don’t want their friends and neighbors thinking that they are conspiracy theorists, irrational, stupid or easily misled.   It’s like Obama and his friends are the bullies on some schoolyard. Some of us will lose friends and more; but what choice do we have?  Surrender to injustice?  Screw that.

Americans have a fundamental right and duty to ask questions about their government and to try to get answers.

America’s Economy Needs to Find Its Bottom before Regaining Sobriety – Obama – The BOPAC Report

June 3, 2009

The BOPAC Report:

America’s Economy Needs to Find Its Bottom before Regaining Sobriety

But Enablers are Moving the Bottom to Places of Extreme Peril

Yesterday, I was surprised by the U. S. stock market going up 221 points. What surprised me was not the gain but how many investors and media people appear to be closing their eyes and crossing their fingers “hoping” the economy will make it and become some sort of orderly, predictable creature.  It’s like those who enable the drinking or drug use of addicts.  It’s okay honey, I understand all the pressure you’re under, but you need to get up and go to work if we’re going to get that promotion.

The buyers looked at a decline in personal spending that was not as bad as was expected, a small unexpected gain in construction spending, a small increase in personal income, an increase in disposable income, and a contraction in the ISM manufacturing index whose pace of decline seemed to be decelerating and they promptly pushed their rose colored glasses higher on their noses and saw rainbows in the future.  Oh my.

I’m sure many investors are simply gaming the system, reading the emotional tea leaves, seeing the “Yes We Can” recover sentiment in the media, and then buying low and selling quickly to make a quick buck. Don’t lose heart, these are the ones who are always feeding off of the swings of market emotion, the ones telling the functional alcoholic it’s early, urging him or her to buy another round of drinks.

But, the investors who are looking at these snapshots of spending, income, and manufacturing – using common sense and seriously considering the total economy, these guys may be in and out of the market daily, hoping some durable enthusiasm takes hold, driving the market up for the next few months to comfort China and other foreign investors in U.S. debt.  However, these buyers are also acting as enablers of a system that desperately needs to find its own bottom so it can make the fundamental changes necessary for a sustainable future.  Because this enabler (the serious investor) is afraid he or she might lose some profit, they don’t demand economic soundness.  (One fundamental that could have helped is if GM had gone bankrupt months ago instead of being a money pit for scores of billions of taxpayer dollars.)

However, true to form, the media simply tries to provide cover for the Obama “Fairy Tale”, hyping any seemingly good news and selling the general public on the idea that the economy is improving because of Obama.  Let me make this perfectly clear, the media is the true villain here because it is their job to inform Americans citizens of the true dangers facing the economy.  They are the principle enablers who will allow the economy to crash beyond repair rather than admit that Obama’s actions are detrimental to sound economic growth and stability.  “Honey, make it work, I trust you, I love you, it’s not your fault” is what the media says 24/7.

Why shouldn’t Obama believe it? They’re the supervisors in the Air France maintenance shop that continues to cover for the mechanic who comes to work hung-over. Make no mistake, we remain on the cliff and Obama’s relentless spending, government takeovers of business, disregarding contracts that protect bond holders (GM), disregarding the rule of law, and printing money from thin air are inching us closer and closer to calamity.

Are these indicators really predicting a turnaround or just the common sense reactions of the public?

There was an unexpected gain in construction spendingBut unexpected? We are just out of winter. Have investors and the media not heard of spring cleaning?  Every year small construction projects increase in the spring because the ground is not frozen, concrete can set, hands are not frost bitten.  This year should be better because people have been cutting back on spending due to uncertainty in the economy, so they have a little money in the bank.  Many of us “Joe the Plumber” types are not quiet ready to bet on the stock market as a long term investment and we are not expert enough to try to predict the market short term.  So, it seems fairly basic that improving the home (value) is the best place to put money right now because there is only so much land and housing will return one day as a good investment relative to the others (if local governments don’t tax too much). It’s common sense.

Everyone please remember that disposable income went up, not wages and salaries, and that consumer spending declined.  People are holding off on spending until they absolutely have to or the deals are just too good to pass up.  Good deals are still available (computers, TV’s, stereos) and some may continue for the next few months for those with money or credit as producers continue clearing their inventories before they begin producing closer to capacity.

Maybe that explains the slowing decline of the manufacturing index?

However, when businesses give the really good deals – their profit margins decrease and so does the ability to provide pay raises, hire new people and reinvestment.  It looks a lot like a cycle that’s creating its own headwind against recovery.  The big question is: Once the inventory is depleted and new production is going strong, will the consumer be there to buy?  I don’t think so because Obama is putting too many obstacles in the way. Let’s count them.

First of all, I want to make this perfectly clear, I don’t think Obama is an enabler of our struggling economy. From my vantage point, it appears that Obama is the “friend” of the alcoholic who has his eye on the alcoholic’s wife or husband (ask Larry Sinclair). Everything Obama has done or is doing is leading to the demise of the U. S. economy. His prize appears to be a socialist economy with a state run media.  Obama must believe that he needs to completely tear down the old to make room for the new no matter how many people’s lives it destroys; or he’s simply incompetent.  Please consider the recent article in Pravda.

He has quadrupled the budget deficit with no way to raise sufficient revenue other than printing money out of thin air.

If Obama were to tax American businesses and the wealthy to the extent necessary to raise sufficient capital to cover his ballooning debt, our economy would grind to a halt and much less revenue (taxes) could be collected by the government.  If business people can’t pass these taxes on to consumers through higher prices, many could or would close down because it wouldn’t be worth the anxiety for the pittance of profit that remains.  As is always the case, the truly wealthy will find a place to move their money to keep it safe from the tentacles of this out of control government.  Remember that bump in the consumer’s disposable income that helped the stock market go up? It will be gone.  You can probably count out any increase in wages and salaries. Let’s also count out millions of jobs while we’re at it.

Obama’s people are looking in every corner for revenue and they are likely resort to gimmicks such as taxes on junk food, tobacco and alcohol to raise money.  It doesn’t seem to matter that such actions will break Obama’s campaign promise not to tax the poor and middleclass? (I guess it’s time to start brewing my own beer.) Notwithstanding campaign promises, additional attacks on every consumer’s wallet are in our future.

Obama’s people are said to be considering an across the board value added tax (VAT) on everything we buy.  That’s really going to help bring consumers back in the market.  And, they’re even talking about taxing the value of health benefits provided to employees which might (will definitely) cause some employers to stop providing health insurance. Tax after tax as far as the eye can see – the alcoholic might need to close one eye so he or she doesn’t get double taxed.

The nearly certain Cap and Trade legislation will definitely raise everyone’s “taxes” – although they will be called higher gas prices, higher electricity prices, and higher “fill in the blank prices” (and will be blamed on someone else). Every business that experiences higher costs due to cap and trade (CO2 reduction) will attempt to shift increased costs to the consumer, cut labor costs, reduce quality and/or go out of business.  Higher gas prices will naturally raise transportation costs for every product made and will need to be passed on to the poor consumer.  And of course, higher gas prices for personal vehicles will further reduce the amount of disposable income consumers have available to make purchases to fuel the recovery.  (Obama should be focusing on encouraging the development of ways to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and using it.  We should be drilling our own oil, developing new nuclear plants to create job and  lower costs and reduce CO2 emissions.)

If politics don’t get in Obama’s way, Cap and Trade will eventually drive the clean coal business out of business forever. Anyway, I sincerely hope the Democratic Governor of West Virginia is paying particular attention given the fact that he might need to name a replacement for the Senior Senator from West Virginia, the Honorable Robert Byrd due to health reasons and/or  his age. Therefore, it might be in West Virginia’s interest to name an Independent to replace Sen. Byrd should the need arise.  Just saying.

As part of Obama’s apparent GM takeover and to appease the UAW, the Obama Administration has apparently agreed to prevent GM from selling (in the U. S.) fuel efficient models that GM currently builds overseas.  Another concession to the union is that Opel’s new owners must agree to stay out of the U.S. and China; so much for being committed to the environment.  This is pure protectionism and Union payback that prevents lower auto prices for consumers and contributes to the perfect storm that our economy is facing.

Printing trillions of dollars, pretending that the United States is solvent is reckless and is not sustainable.  It’s not at all credible.  Last week, Treasury Secretary Timothy Giethner was in China to reassure the Chinese government that their investment in U.S. securities was secure.

“Chinese assets are very safe,” Geithner said in response to a question after a speech at Peking University, where he studied Chinese as a student in the 1980s.

His answer drew loud laughter from his student audience, reflecting skepticism in China about the wisdom of a developing country accumulating a vast stockpile of foreign reserves instead of spending the money to raise living standards at home.

Michelle Malkin has it right when she says:

Tax cheat Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is a laughingstock in Congress. A permanent punchline on late-night TV. And he’s a joke in China

Luckily, one thing we can count on is that China will act in accordance with China’s interests.  They do not, at this time, want America’s economy to collapse because they have trillions to lose. Notwithstanding, China should be demanding higher interest because of the increased risk of an American default.  China should be reducing its long term exposure to the American economy by buying shorter term Treasuries and diversifying into copper, gold, silver, etc. It makes sense. If China and other countries stop supporting our economy by not buying our debt, we are cooked.  The dollar will be worthless. It will be time to lock the door and load the gun because extreme times are coming.

America is not too big to fail!

On that note, something that we might want to study and pay attention to (instead of the media) is the yield trend on the 10 year Treasury note because that might give us some warning of a coming train wreck.  When the price falls on bonds, the yield goes up. When foreign countries sell (dump) large amounts of our debt, the bond price will fall and the yield goes up.  Even though China cares about returns, if they begin dumping our bonds causing serious increases in the yield, it indicates that China has no confidence in our currency or economy. Like I said if there are no buyers, we’re cooked.  It will take a truck load of dollars to buy anything. 

I’m fairly sure that we prefer selling these longer term bonds because we can put off having to pay up and also have time to pray that something good happens. The bond prices are what the Fed tries to manipulate by buying and selling U.S. Treasuries so they can stabilize the yield on bonds.  If they are successful, our government doesn’t have to pay so much interest on our debt.  However, it is also one BIG thing that the Fed can’t seem to control.  An excellent article to get a sense of what is going on is Fed Credibility Bubble Bursts as Too Big to Fail General Motors Goes Bankrupt.

…Since the Fed has no Plan B, what does it do next?

Does it print more money, buy more bonds and pray that despite no change in policy, it will magically see a change in results?

Does it try to repeal the law of gravity — to somehow prevent sellers from selling and falling prices from falling?

Does it seek to travel back in time — to somehow reverse the blunders of past Fed Chairmen who helped create today’s debt monster in the first place?

Sorry, but those “solutions” are both insane and impossible….Continue Reading

One thing that the Fed cannot do is to guarantee the debt of California whose credit rating went from stable to negative.  America’s economy cannot take anymore debt or anymore unfunded spending.

We need real income such as comes from unsubsidized energy like oil, natural gas, clean coal, and nuclear.  We need to find ways to remove carbon from the atmosphere and utilize it.  We need to cut taxes on corporations to lower costs to consumers.  We need to  utilize markets and capitalist solutions that punish incompetence instead of rewarding it (GM). We need a free and fair media that does its job. We need Dr. Orly Taitz or Philip Berg to cause Obama to be removed from office because he is (probably) not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution.  We need Larry Sinclair to hold Obama’s zipper to the fire. We need judges who interpret the Constitution and don’t try to rewrite it. We need to resist transnationalism with every fiber of our bodies and souls. We need to support our military and their families.

We need the Fed to stop acting as a major enabler and to demand sustainable solutions.

I’m sure Glenn Beck could add a lot concerning enabling and addiction.

And speaking of Larry Sinclair – it seems that Mr. Sinclair is seriously considering running for the United States Senate seat of Mel Martinez.  I wonder if the media will cover his allegations then.  Probably not. What if he won?

I do have a great deal of respect for Mr. Sinclair’s determination and resolve.

If Michelle Obama can intimidate book publishing companies with a few phone calls, what will happen when Obama has a like minded individual on the Supreme Court?  I never thought I would see the day when the publishing industry is leading the way to censorship.

Will the internet continue to be a forum for the free expression of opinion?  Maybe not. It seems Judge Sotomayor has little hesitancy in siding with the powerful in their efforts to punish a little girl’s “douche bag” comment on her blog.  Where’s the ACLU?  Will they oppose this nominee?

Sotomayor Ruled in “D-Bag Case” Ruled teen’s blog post created a created “foreseeable risk of substantial disruption”

By YVONNE NAVA and LEANNE GENDREAU

Updated 12:16 PM EDT, Thu, May 28, 2009

President Barack Obama’s nominee to fill a Supreme Court vacancy has yet another tie to Connecticut. She sided against a student in the infamous “douche bag” case, and that has upset some free-speech advocates.

//

In August 2007, Judge Sonia Sotomayor sat on a panel that ruled against an appeal in Doninger v. Niehoff.

Avery Doninger was disqualified from running for school government at Lewis S. Mills High School in Burlington after she posted something on her blog, referring to the superintendent and other officials as “douche bags” because they canceled a battle of the bands she had helped to organize.

The case went to court and in March 2008, Sotomayor was on a panel that heard Doninger’s mother’s appeal alleging her daughter’s free speech and other rights were violated. Her mother wanted to prevent the school from barring her daughter from running.

Sotomayor joined two other judges from the 2nd Circuit in ruling that the student’s off-campus blog remarks created a “foreseeable risk of substantial disruption” at the student’s high school and that the teenager was not entitled to a preliminary injunction reversing a disciplinary action against her, Education Week reports….Continue Reading

Recently, it was reported that mainly Chysler’s car dealerships whose owners donated to Republicans were the ones targeted to close. These actions sound a lot like the work of the mob silencing opponents – silencing political speech.  It seems that  the Obama Administration (with the help of their minions and the media) is continuously making  attacks (direct & indirect) on people who have taken positions opposed to the official narrative or have expressed opinions they want silenced. Larry Sinclair, Stanley Kurtz, Dr. Orly Taitz, Philip Berg, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Carrie Prejean, Justice Clarence Thomas, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, FOX and many others could give first hand experiences with Obama’s efforts to control what the public hears.

A free America… means just this: individual freedom for all, rich or poor, or else this system of government we call democracy is only an expedient to enslave man to the machine and make him like it.
Frank Lloyd Wright

By silencing opinions in opposition, the  masses will likely buy into the rhetoric and gladly put on the yoke of enslavement themselves. Ignorance is bliss, I suppose.  It amazes me that America’s march to enslaving its people by controlling information is being led by publishing companies.

How do they make them like it? Vilify others such as business, Republicans, Conservatives, and those who don’t tow the line – then make these evil “taxpayers” (the vast majority of those paying the bulk of taxes are much fewer in number than voters who receive some type of government handout) support the dependent masses who vote, give voters stimulus checks, hand out temporary government jobs, promise “good” government run health care, grant amnesty to illegals and make voters out of them too, etc.  In other words buy their votes and/or create dependency and help them forget and/or ignore America’s founding principles.  Welcome to the United States of Mediocrity!

Blame others, reward some and create victims.   It works for votes, but it is not sustainable and will bankrupt the country.

Update:  I just saw on Drudge the following headline:

Obama Offers Prime Posts to Those Who Helped Bankroll Campaign...

It fits in perfectly with the blame, reward, and create victims tactics of Chicago Politics. Change my left foot.

Marriage is the Domain of the Church and God – Obama – Gay Marriage – Glenn Beck – Church – Market Risk – Stock Market – Federal Deficit – Social Security – The BOPAC Report

May 13, 2009

Marriage is the Domain of the Church and God –

Market Risk is the Domain of Individuals and Business –

Neither is the Domain of the Federal Government.

This morning I heard Glenn Beck talking briefly about gay marriage, civil unions and the possibility that triad couples (between more than 2 people) could soon start demanding the same rights. After I finished rolling my eyes, I began thinking about the issue and quickly came to the same opinion that I hold concerning gay marriages and marriage in general.  Marriage is an issue for the church, consenting adults, and God.  If there are some churches that recognize gay marriages, fine (as long they are between freely consenting adults).  If there are some churches that recognize marriage between more than two people or communal families, fine (as long as they are between freely consenting adults).  I’m not in the religion or morality business as long as actions don’t hurt others or infringe upon their rights.

Why in the world is the government, any government, state or federal, in the business of sanctifying or recognizing any marriage?  It has always been clear to me that when government makes it possible for people who are “married” to have benefits and rights (social security or medical decision making) different from “non-married” people, it is a violation of both the equal protection clause (14th Amendment to the Constitution) and the prohibition respecting the establishment of religion (1st Amendment to the Constitution).

Social Security benefits accruing to surviving spouses are probably the main reason people are upset about the federal government not recognizing gay marriage in general.  I agree completely that gay and single couples both have a legitimate right to be upset.  Where does the idea and definition of marriage come from?  It comes from the church. (Particularly churches of the Judea/Christian tradition.)

In this country, the Christian church’s biblical interpretation that marriage is only between one man and one woman is engrained in literature and history as the rule.  However today, there are churches that recognize and perform marriages between couples of the same sex, transgender persons, and even between a man and a woman.  So, when official government process bestows benefits to those individuals who are in “traditional marriages”, the definition of which was establish by the Judea/Christian beliefs, there is clearly a preference being made for one religion’s or church’s definition of marriage over those found in other religions or churches.

When government goes down the “we benefit you, but not you” path; it sure seems like government is either involved in establishing  a particular religion or government is not providing equal protection and opportunity for “single” individuals who wish to consolidate and share their resources as “partners” or “significant others” the same as “traditionally married” people.  Government should either benefit people equally or don’t benefit anyone.

If Joe and Mary, or Joe and Sam, or Joe, Mary, & Jane said to the government that we want to pool our social security contributions from this date forward, then every participant’s individual social security contributions would be pooled and the sum would be divided by the number of people involved and that amount would be credited to each person’s individual social security earnings account.

This would allow the stay-at-home mom or dad to make contributions to their individual social security account as if they were “working” (half of the family’s income would be credited to each person in the relationship).  It would work the same way for gay couples or communal families.  Each person in such an arrangement would have some measure of protection vis-à-vis social security.  There would be no surviving spouse benefit because they would have their own social security. Primary income earners or those with a bigger income could direct part of their social security contributions to another’s account because they are committed to the other person (or people) and/or recognize the value of another person(s) non-monetary contributions such as raising children, gardening or taking care of the house.

I would think that most people would not have a problem with such a restructuring of Social Security because the government would be recognizing the limits of its power by saying we are not going to involve ourselves with the definition of the term marriage.  Marriage is within the domain of the church, the consenting individual(s), and their God.

It amazes me that the government doesn’t try harder to stay out of the business of limiting the rights of individuals more.  It seems like politicians want division so they can play each side off the other and maintain their grip on power.  Every time the government and politicians get involved in anything they create fear and uncertainty; and then use that uncertainty to their own advantage.  One only needs to look at the current financial mess that the economy is in.

Obama likes to say that he inherited the mess and he is only doing what has to be done.  However, the truth is that he and many Democrats in Congress share a great deal of the blame for the economic mess and Obama is using this crisis to get his political objectives accomplished.  The entire mess can be traced back to when government (mostly Democrats, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd) decided it wanted to get into the business of setting up regulations that created opportunities for groups like ACORN to pressure banks into lending to people who were not able to afford mortgages. This led to many of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s problems; which coupled with packaging these sub-prime assets into financial bundles and selling them round the world; it caused the global house of cards to collapse.

The government was trying to manipulate business RISK principles and it backfired.  Banks wound up being in the position of making risky loans that could be sold to the government (or guaranteed) and the bank’s RISK of losing its own money was greatly diminished.  It’s a lot easier to play fast and loose with other people’s money.

Market Risk is the Domain of Individuals and Business.

Now, people are getting excited that the stock market appears to be signaling the end of the crisis.  Think again.  The news of the past few days paints a much bleaker picture.  Consider the following:

With passage of Obama’s budget, the government will have to borrow almost 50 cents for every dollar it spends this year.

The Federal deficit will be greater than 1.8 trillion dollars this year.

Social Security and Medicare financial projections have been revised to reflect that they are going broke sooner than expected.  Medicare is already losing money by the truckloads and Social Security will be sending out payments faster than money coming in by 2016. That’s only 7 years away! Congress is not only spending money like drunken sailors but they are also so afraid of risking the votes of senior citizens that they are unwilling to effectively address the Social Security/Medicare problem.  (That’s the problem with creating dependency for voter loyalty, the bill always comes due. Then it comes down to who can be blamed.  With the American media’s proclivity for supporting Democrats, blame usually finds it way to Republicans regardless of facts to the contrary.)

Last week, the Treasury auction went poorly and Treasury yields soared.  This means that the government has to pay much more interest on the amounts they are borrowing.

This week, the government was buying their own securities to bring the yields back down some.  Where are the funds coming from to for the Fed to do all this buying? They have the printing presses running overtime.  This will, in the not too distant future, damage severely the value of the dollar and cause a substantial rise in inflation.  The price of everything will go up and foreign countries will be reluctant to purchase our debt to keep the charade going.

China, who holds a great deal of our debt, will be looking for treasuries paying higher interest in order to entice them to purchase more debt.

The more the government prints money out of thin air, the more the dollar’s value will be affected.  There will more money available to buy the same number of goods – causing inflationary pressure. Demand will likely take a downturn once consumers figure out they need to be protecting bank balances.  However, with a decline in dollar’s value, it means that many goods will cost more to produce because the materials required for production will cost more. Therefore producers will either need to raise prices, lower profit margins, lower labor costs (lower wages and/or cut jobs), and/or relocate to areas where the costs of production (taxes etc.) are lower.  However, even with these actions, consumers may not buy at higher prices (or even current prices) and businesses will go under.

So why are stock going up? I believe that many people are being led to think the crisis is ending by Obama and the media and they want to be in on the bull market.  I also believe that many people are moving out of U.S. Securities because the yields are relatively low right now, some stocks price/earnings ratios look attractive comparatively and some investors are starting to believe that Treasuries are too risky and could collapse in the future.  I think people are buying stocks because they feel like they are buying something tangible like buildings, machinery, etc. I bet buyers are looking at companies that don’t have high debt to equity ratios.  Stocks just look better than most of the other choices right now.  Now is the operative word because once interest rates on government securities are forced to rise to 6 or 7%, a lot of investors will shift back trying to stay ahead of the calamity that’s nearly certain to come.  This amount of debt and planned taxation is not sustainable.

This crisis can only be overcome by returning to sound economic principles now. Congress and Obama must stop trying to spend and tax our way out of this. The media needs to be telling the story of how to work toward healthy long term economic fundamentals and not just promoting Obama’s plan.  Obama’s massive stimulus is a short-term feel good illusion; but like social security, the bill will come due.

The media should encouraging Tea Parties instead of attacking them.  The media needs to tell the truth about Obama and his real objectives.  The media needs to investigate & report factually about Obama’s eligibility issue, Rezko, Ayers, Larry Sinclair’s allegations, Obama’s associations with ACORN, and the numerous other issues and scandals from Obama’s past. Before America can come together, these questions must be addressed fully. The media generated Obama “fairy tale” must stop because America’s future is at stake. The media needs to tell the truth and report the news.

We need to support companies like Ford who are not feeding off tax payers and taking direction from self-serving politicians.  Boycott companies like GM, Chrysler, Citigroup and others who undermine ingenuity and lead America to mediocrity.

Neither marriage nor market risk should be within the domain of the Federal Government.

Americans Might Want To Heed the Admonitions of The Past Regarding Election

October 25, 2008

Americans Might Want To Heed the Admonitions of The Past

We are quickly approaching the day when the direction of America will be decided. Will America follow a course steeped in ideology tempered by history or will she follow a course steeped mainly in ideology? Will the electorate be aware that these are America’s choices? Probably not, looking at the current polls, it appears that this election will be based mostly on faith and hope for change. If informed reason were being applied, the poll results would most likely be different.

One can easily draw the distinction between Senators McCain and Obama based on ideology tempered by history verses ideology alone by looking closely at their lives.

A person I admire, Oprah Winfrey, once said, When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. I think this is sound advice that proves true 99 percent of the time. America has seen Sen. McCain through many years and he has remained a consistent and dedicated public servant. Early in his career in the military he probably held strongly to some sort of ideology that grew out of the cold war. Maybe it involved the concepts of good forces prevailing over unjust forces. Just as the Vietnam War grew out of the cold war and threw light on the realities of conflict; the Vietnam War experience threw light on Sen. McCain’s own view of life.

When I look at Sen. McCain, I see a man who understands that core principles are what you are and they must not change simply because a situation changes. A severely battered John McCain had had an opportunity to leave his prison in Vietnam before other prisoners who were more senior, but he refused. Sen. McCain looked the immigration issue in America with compassion and tried to find a practical solution, an action that brought him condemnation by many. Sen. McCain warned of the financial nightmare that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac abuses were causing; but the Democrats in charge chose to ignore his advice. Many times Sen. McCain has reached across the aisle, pragmatically, to try to find solutions to America’s problems.

Sen. John McCain is a man of core principles and the one he holds most dear is “Country First”. I believe him because as Oprah said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” Whatever ideology Sen. McCain may have held as a younger man has been tempered by his own history and America’s history into a commitment to put the interests of America above his own. This is the America voter’s choice of ideology tempered by history.

When I look at Sen. Obama, I see a man who has burst on the scene and captured the imaginations of millions. Surprisingly, supporters seem to have developed an incredibly strong attachment to the idea of Obama and what they perceive that means; so strong, in fact, that it boarders on religious faith. Many issues that would have sunk any other politician have disappeared in the mist. The Senator’s backers appear more preoccupied with his rhetoric of the future than anything about the past, any past, including Sen. Obama’s. The past is cliché, boring, out of date, damaged goods with no place in today’s world. However, Albert Einstein might have a little different view of the past. He has said, The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion”. I think Albert Einstein would consider Sen. Obama’s past just as important as the man being presented today.

Given the relative lack of leadership experience of Sen. Obama, reason would seem to dictate that his past should be even more important as a predictor of his future actions. However, in the politics of the day, the Media has assumed the role of advocate and obscurer for Sen. Obama’s campaign. Americans, who are trying to make a reasoned decision, are therefore having a very difficult time discerning what information is truthful and accurate; and what is not. What are the facts? This is a very real question in the minds of many voters. Quills drawn, the Media’s theory is that Obama is the one who must lead America. To support their vision, the Media does as Einstein, in a different context, counseled; If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.”

Sen. Obama has been relentlessly pounding the theme that McCain equal four more years of George Bush, a narrative that has been sold in lockstep with the Press and Democratic Party leadership. One would think that common sense could see through the sales pitch, but it hasn’t. The Press has been constantly bashing President Bush for going on eight years. (I suspect mostly because they think he’s stupid, inarticulate and beneath them.)

Many of the America’s newly registered voters are younger; and therefore, they may be more susceptible to the myths of the Media. Apparently, their minimal life experience hasn’t given most of them much of an accurate barometer or enough common sense to judge fact from fiction. “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen” another truism from Einstein’s repertoire that is at play here. The anti-Bush prejudice is raging, gathering steam, and Sen. McCain has been unjustly caught up in it web.

One other fact that the Media has attempted to distort is that somehow the current financial crisis was the result of the mean old Republican attempts to deregulate everything in sight. This is just another collection of prejudice reinforced by the Media that it is untrue, especially for Sen. McCain. He was one of the leaders in the efforts to rein in Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac; unfortunately, his efforts were blocked by the Chris Dodds and Barney Franks of the Democratic Party.

Where does Sen. Obama stand on the economy? He has stated and restated a desire to redistribute the wealth in America. This is exactly the wrong approach. Even a basic level of understanding about economics would act as a bar against trying to tax our way out of the current financial crisis. You don’t damage (over tax) those who are creating jobs and wealth for America and Americans. Regrettably, somehow too many Americans today have become accepting of the notion that the world (well the Federal Government) owes them a living and that wealth should be redistributed more ‘fairly’ to them.

The history of the ‘Great’ Depression clearly reveals that the measures implemented by government to overcome it were the reasons that the Depression became ‘Great’. Almost everyone recognizes that a thorough knowledge of the past is critical if we are not to repeat the mistakes of yesterday. However, I don’t think Sen. Obama understands it quite that way. Higher taxes and too much Federal intervention are not what the American economy needs today. As much as he hates to hear it, Sen. Obama’s economic ideas reek of socialism. We need to get back to the ideas of American innovation and personal responsibility.

Sen. Obama has been hailed as a superior intellect and amazing orator. But, who is he? What is his past? Who were those that stimulated and helped to form his thinking and beliefs? Sal Alinsky? Is he the same person today that he has been for the past 20 years?

How much has the media allowed us to know about the depth of the relationships Sen. Obama had with William Ayers? Sen. Obama said he was just a guy in his neighborhood.

How much has the media allowed us to know about the depth of the relationship with Frank Davis? Andy Martin raises some interesting questions about this relationship.

How much has the Media allowed us to know about the depth of the relationships with Father Michael Pfleger, Minister Louis Farrakhan, and Rev. Wright? Aren’t these all company Obama’s mind kept? Are the ideologies encapsulated by many of Sen. Obama’s past associates very far from those espoused by Socialists and Marxists?

How much has the Media allowed us to know about the relationship with Tony Rezko and his associates? Are the ideologies encapsulated by Tony Rezko’s actions those of corrupt politics?

A man is known by the company his mind keeps.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich

How much has the Media allowed us to know about the alleged relationship with Larry Sinclair?

To date, Sen. Obama has disavowed most of these people and/or their statements and actions. How much weight should Americans give to such a disavowal?

Should we accept the revelation of Rev. Wright?

“He’s a politician. I’m a pastor. We speak to two different audiences. And he says what he has to say as a politician. I say what I have to say as a pastor. Those are two different worlds. I do what I do, he does what politicians do.”

Or should we follow Oprah’s direction?

“When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

Common sense and reason tell me to listen to both Oprah and Rev. Wright in Sen. Obama’s case. Sen. Obama, at the very least, has shown an incredible naiveté concerning his past associations and their impact on his reputation.

Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation. It is better be alone than in bad company.
George Washington

Common sense and reason also implies that if Sen. Obama were the man he is portrayed as, there would be a line of people from his past standing, waiting to tell his story. The story of how Sen. Obama became such a partisan divide bridge builder, such a healer, such a patriot, such a reconciler, such an economist, such a negotiator, such a defense strategist would all be stories I would like to hear.

Who from Sen. Obama’s past is standing or waiting to tell his story?

What is the Media not telling America about Sen. Obama’s relationship to ACORN?

How many other scandals and allegations are there just from our view? Are there some yet unknown scandals being hidden by the Media? What about the Berg v. Obama lawsuit that is challenging Sen. Obama’s eligibility to hold the Office of the Presidency? What about the other lawsuits is several states? What about the validity of Sen. Obama’s birth certificate? What about all the allegations set forth in Berg v. Obama? What about the allegations that Sen. Obama was born in Kenya? Why is that not news? What would happen should he win the election and then be found to be ineligible to hold office? What about the questions about the allegations about Obama’s past and/or current Indonesian citizenship? What about Sen. Obama’s alleged membership in a Socialist organization, New Party? What about Sen. Obama’s extreme views on abortion? What about the allegations that Sen. Obama violated provisions of the Logan Act during his last trip to Iraq and during the run-up to the Kenyan elections?

There is so much about Sen. Obama that Americans don’t know. Some people are choosing to ignore the reasonable inferences from Sen. Obama’s past, some people don’t care and some people are not informed or misled by Obama’s campaign and the Media. The mainstream Media has done a grave disservice to America in 2008. The full consequences of Sen. Obama becoming President, under so many clouds as are set forth above, cannot be fully predicted or prepared for.

Therefore, it is critical that Americans take this election seriously and start considering the numerous allegations facing Sen. Obama before November 4th.

Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.
Theodore Roosevelt

In conclusion, America needs to take a breath and give another American voice a few moments of consideration.

To follow by faith alone is to follow blindly

Voter’s, Obama, Will o’ The Wisp, Change, Confounding Voter’s Perceptions

October 19, 2008

America’s Attachment to the Idea

of Change is the Perilous

“Will o’ The Wisp” That’s

Confounding Voter’s Perceptions

The phrase will o’ the wisp has be used to describe one, metaphorically speaking, who is holding so tightly to a goal that they doggedly follow any hints of it, oblivious to what lies unnoticed right under their noses. One of many descriptors is the image of a peasant farmer following a lantern light off in the distance, held by a mythical creature, whereupon the farmer winds up deep in the marsh. The farmer’s focus on the light is such that he becomes unaware of his surroundings; and waiting in the darkness, the consequences of blindly following the creature’s light stand ready to appear.

This is what seems to be happening in the 2008 Presidential election. Many voters are so attached to the idea of “change” or “change from” that they are not noticing information that is critical for sound decision making concerning their votes. It’s the information that gives hints of what consequences lay in the darkness and for the future. For these voters, the election is about solely about change; and therefore, thoroughly analyzing new information as it comes available is not necessary. “Change” is the goal, the lantern light, the treasure and they can see it just there.

This year Sen. Obama has been ordained by the media as the only way to that goal. Normally most voters would be constantly reviewing and searching for information about an unknown candidate; but not this year. Normally the media would be diligently searching for information that would give voters a glimpse of a unknown candidate’s character; but not this year. Unfortunately, the media has relinquished their traditional role as the source of reliable (true) information this year. This year, the media has assumed the role of advocate and protector. (Consider what has happened when an average citizen confronted Sen. Obama. The media immediately circled the wagons and brought their resources to bear in an effort to destroy Joe the Plumber’s credibility.)

When it comes to recognizing truth, I believe half of what I see and very, very little of what I read. With today’s media so clearly taking sides regarding this election and regarding most issues, what I read must be scrutinized to discover what facts are facts, what’s the real context, what facts are omitted, where opinion is stated as fact, what is implied as fact, what is credible, what is the author’s bias. As a voter, I’m not willing to blindly follow a party’s or a newscaster’s version of truth. It’s difficult and time consuming work. The critical questions for me are: Am I as fully informed as I can be? Am I putting my country first and my own self-interests second?

Regarding Sen. Obama, instead of providing real information for voters to use to judge Senator Obama’s character, intentions, believes, and actions; the media continues to feed voters a ‘fairy tale’ that paints the Senator as new, pure, wise, a messiah, the bringer of Hope and Change. I know the media won’t like this, but they ARE the peasant farmer blindly following the mythical creature who carries the lantern into the marsh because they too have lost their objectivity.

I can’t just blame the media for this phenomenon. It IS the responsibility of every voter to investigate and try to find out as much as they can about the candidates. The will o’ the wisp is the mantra of “change” this year. Change is the goal for voters. I do agree that Sen. Obama will bring the most change if he is elected; however, the change he brings has the possibility of seriously damaging America’s economy and future. Regrettably, many voters appear to be looking for a type of change that changes how much they can take from the government. The federal budget ballooning, the degradation of the concept of personal responsibility, the effect on others as the economy sputters doesn’t seem to matter to those who would vote on the basis of what they might get. These voters are not considering what consequences might be in the darkness on the marsh.

Obama’s wanting to “spread the wealth around” is textbook socialist economic policy. It does have a strong appeal to those Americans who would rather take from others and not earn for themselves. Unfortunately, it does seem as though American is becoming a “what’s in it for me” country. History has shown us over and over that raising taxes on businesses and those who create jobs (especially during an economic downturn) results in less revenue for government, less growth in the economy, fewer jobs being created, less incentive to take risks that lead to innovative solutions for problems. Why would we want to go there? Senator Obama’s change would not result in any betterment of the situations of American families. Obama’s change would result in a further slowing of our economy and the concurrent lost of jobs and benefits. The “what’s in it for me” voters would be cutting off their noses to spite their faces.

When I pull the lever on Election Day, I will be fully aware of what voting means. It means that I have tried to best of my abilities to ascertain who my selectee is, what they believe, where they will take the country, what their character is, and what will be the likely consequences if my candidate prevails. In the end, I believe that America will deserve the consequences of this election, good and bad. If America, an informed America, wants to go down the road of socialism with an inexperienced, minimally vetted candidate; so be it. I however will not voluntarily be on board for such a journey.

If voters and the media were not so intoxicated by the idea of change, change they have to have, they would likely be paying attention to all of the skeletons in Sen. Obama’s closet.

They would be looking closely at Sen. Obama’s past associations with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Pastor Michael Pfleger, Bernadine Dorn, Minister Louis Farrakhan, and William Ayers. They would be looking into Sen. Obama’s connection to ACORN, the organization that is up to its ears in voter fraud. They would be looking into Sen. Obama’s connections to the crisis in the U.S. financial system through the actions, policies and political contributions regarding Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac. They would be looking into the allegations of Larry Sinclair, who says that he and Sen. Obama used cocaine and engaged in consensual sex in 1999. They would be looking into allegations concerning Sen. Obama’s campaign’s involvement with censorship and intimidation against those who oppose Sen. Obama – (Stanley Kurtz for example). They would be looking into Sen. Obama’s extreme views concerning abortion, some would say infanticide. They would be looking into the allegations set forth in Berg v. Obama that challenge whether Sen. Obama is even eligible to hold the Office of President of the United States. They would be looking into the allegations that Sen. Obama violated the Logan Act during his last trip to Iraq and during the elections in Kenya that left more than a thousand people dead.

In conclusion, it is my belief that this is the most important election in my lifetime. It will hurt me deeply if America is destroyed by such a naïve and short sighted phenomenon as is the “Will o’ the Wisp” that the bumper sticker of “Change We Can Believe In” has set in motion.
