The End of the Republic

Shockingly people didn't vote their pocketbooks in the 2012 election, clearing the way for the nation-destroying socialist Barak Hussein Obama to continue his path of destruction within the United States government and economy. Under the first 4 years of the Obama Administration, taxes skyrocketed for most Americans. The average (uniformed) citizen was told this was to prevent a disastrous economic calamity (a lie) while shrouding massive overspending by the DemocRATS (mainly to their crony union allies) of over two TRILLION US dollars. In fact, Obama and his stupid/foolish allies running the government spent twice as much versus the previous Bush administration (Bush overspent $4 trillion over 8 years, Obama overspent $4 trillion in just 4 years). This massive accumulation of debt caused the first downgrade in our nation's credit in over 100 years, in fact it was downgraded twice. This may seem unimportant to people but they don't realize the economic facts of this disaster: looming high credit rates, sky-high mortgage payments for any new home buyers for at least the next 20 years, ans possible hyperinflation and the (further) devaluation of the US dollar to meaninglessness. The ignorance of people is so shocking, that the vast majority of people I know are stunned by the reelection of a President who got a C+ job performance by most voters. Here in the US of A, do you know what was the number one reason people voted for Obama? It was that Obama "cares". Meaning Obama is like a Santa Claus, who will provide for them their contraceptives, free cell phone, food stamps, medicare...etc. This causes huge spending problem and it will lead to hyperinflation soon, but nobody cares what happens tomorrow, people want stuff right now. As long as people get their HBO or True Blood (or Playboy channel) they will be happy. They will have their "bread and circuses" while the nation bankrupts itself and falls apart around them. So sad.



In hindsight, people, in some ways, did vote their pocketbooks in that they did vote for the guy who gave them the most food stamps and welfare. It's now a proven fact that the number of people on welfare has DOUBLED during Obama's tenure, all the while he continues to blame former President Bush for it all. He should be ashamed that this many Americans need financial support and moving heaven and earth to get them back to work, but no! He is more interested in waging war on the Republicans and on the wealthy and businesses than helping create jobs to get people working again. He is a nightmare of a president, a complete incompetent, and will be regarded one day as one of the worst Presidents the USA ever had. His ultimate goal is now clear, and many leftists have the same goal; the destruction of the United States so their precious One World Government under the UN can come to fruition. This about it folks, this is the ONLY reason why Obama has continually damaged the US economy; we cannot fall from outside attack, only from the inside, from bankruptcy and anarchy and violence.



Now think about that while you do your shopping for Christmas and pick up some extra emergency food, some bullets to protect your family, and a new gun or two, and God Bless!

Voting Day

Hey guys, sorry it has been awhile since I updated this page. I have been in information overload the last few months and its been hard to blog. Myself and my entire family are endorsing Mitt Romney for President of the United States. In all, Obama has been one of the most incomptent leaders of our country, overseeing the official downgrading of out nation's credit rating for the first time in neary 100 years. Obama's failed policies including not getting the nation back to work, and nixing important jobs projects like the Keystone Pipeline and selling billions of dollars worth of fighter jest to threatened Taiwan (to name just a few). Obama has also massively overspent, spending more in 4 years than President Bush did in the last eight. In addition, this utter incompetent had the nerve to wage war on business and anyone with money, then berated them for not getting people back to work by not creating new jobs. Excuse me Mr. Obama, when you attack businessmen, they won't work for you or support you or help you. Obama has been the worst failure since Jimmy Carter, and election day wil prove it. Finally, Obama has been officially endorsed by the mass murdering monsters Vladimir Putin, Fidel Castrom, and Hugo Chavez (no joke). This triple trifecta of totalitarian murders would have been the sentence of death for any poltician 10 years ago, but today Democrats and leftists seek the support of such people, which speaks volumes to the rest of us "normal" people, the average American. Remember that when you go to the polls on Tuesday, and God Bless the USA.

Black Bishop Calls For All Christians To Leave Democratic Party
posted on August 21, 2012 by Dave Jolly

Bishop Earl Walker Jackson Sr. (E.W. Jackson) has issued a plea for all Christians to leave the Democratic Party.

Like Barack Obama, Jackson is a graduate of Harvard Law School.  Unlike Obama, Jackson served in the U.S. Marine Corps and knows what it really means to serve your country.  Following law school, he was a practicing attorney for 15 years in Boston.  During his time in Boston, he served as chaplain for the Boston Red Sox for 5 years and as a Protestant chaplain for the Boston fire department.  He was involved with The Samaritan Project to help churches that had been damaged by arson.  In 1998, Jackson was ordained as a bishop and head of Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia.

In 2009, Bishop Jackson launched a national grassroots organization aimed at restoring America’s Judeo-Christian foundations.  S.T.A.N.D. (Staying True to America’s National Destiny) is dedicated to restoring the faith, values and Christian culture that America once had but has since lost.  Earlier this year, Jackson ran for U.S. Senate in the Virginia primary, but was soundly defeated by fellow Republican George Allen.

In his plea for Christians to make an exodus from the Democratic Party, Jackson refers to the Party as cult-like and cites the following reasons for his statement and actions:

    Pro-abortion
    Rejection of biblical family model and values
    Open hostility to anyone who expresses their Christian values including Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-A and Olympic gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas
    Actions taken against cities and towns for displaying crosses at memorials
    Actions taken against anyone who invokes the name of Jesus during prayers at official events

Jackson expressed his disappointment in the way journalist Mary Elizabeth Williams with Salon.com wrote about Gabby Douglas’s tribute to God.  Williams wrote:

“I’ve often wondered what it is about Christians like Douglas that unnerves me so … Douglas and her ilk seem to espouse a faith based on what is commonly referred to as ‘The God of Parking Spaces.’”

When the Democratic Party officially endorsed same-sex marriage, Jackson said:

“They will be saying, ‘We don’t care what you think, what you believe, or what the Bible or the God of the Bible says. We know better than God.’”

This has led him send the following message to all Christians in America:

“The Democrat Party has turned its back on Christians. It is time to turn our backs on the Democrat Party.”

So here we have one black Harvard law grad telling the other Harvard law grad that he has turned his back on God and that it’s time Christians turn their back on him and the rest of his progressive liberals.  I hope and pray that the message would reach every Christian and that they follow Bishop Jackson’s plea.

Newsweeks Cover

Newsweek's Obama Slam Could Be Turning Point
Monday, 20 Aug 2012 09:52 AM
By Ronald Kessler


Ronald Kessler reporting from Washington, D.C. — The financial crisis a few weeks before the last presidential election was enough to push Barack Obama over the top. This week’s Newsweek cover slamming President Obama could have almost as much impact.

“Hit the Road, Barack — Why We Need a New President” the cover says. “Obama’s Gotta Go” the article inside says.

Journalists are not idiots. They recognize that Obama, as the Newsweek cover story documents, has been a failure. But they are also lemmings who will not depart from their traditional support of Democrats unless given permission by their peers. The cover story in Newsweek, one of the most liberal-leaning publications in the country, does just that.

Because of support by the press, Obama became president in the first place and has held his own against Mitt Romney in polls.

Three months before the story of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr.’s connection to Obama finally broke in the mainstream media, I began writing stories as chief Washington correspondent of Newsmax.com about Obama’s close association with his America-bashing minister.

The media, which had known generally about Wright since Obama announced his candidacy in February 2007, ignored the stories. If the media had picked them up then, Obama likely would not be president today.

According to pollsters, largely as a result of the stories the press finally ran about Wright, Obama’s double-digit lead over Hillary Clinton vanished. At the same time, John McCain shot up in the polls, and Hillary began winning the primaries. But by then, Obama was ahead, and it was too late for her to overcome his previous lead.

Indeed, David Remnick’s “The Ridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama” quotes an unidentified Clinton aide as saying, “If Jeremiah Wright had dropped in January [2008], it [Obama’s candidacy] would have been over.”

Today, the media largely ignore Obama’s daily distortions and record of failure, all documented in the Newsweek article. In contrast, after President Bush gave his 2003 State of the Union address, the press attacked him mercilessly for weeks over his 16-word statement that the British government had learned that Saddam Hussein sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa.

In fact, the statement was true. After the British House of Commons Intelligence and Security Committee reviewed the MI6 intelligence about the claim involving Niger, it concluded in September 2003 that the British intelligence service was justified in continuing to say that Hussein had tried to obtain uranium from that country. The press then ignored the report showing that Bush’s statement was indeed accurate.

But when Obama says the private sector of the economy is doing fine, belittles success, claims the Supreme Court cannot overrule a law passed by Congress, says he is not divisive even as he attacks Republicans, gratuitously injects race into his comments, or claims Romney and Paul Ryan would end Medicare as we know it, the press gives the president a pass.

None of this is lost on the public.

A recent Rasmussen poll found that 59 percent of likely U.S. voters believe Obama has received the best treatment from the media so far. Just 18 percent think Mitt Romney has been treated better.

Having been a reporter for the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, I know how susceptible journalists are to the herd instinct. The Newsweek cover story in effect tells journalists it’s OK to begin telling the truth about Obama and expose his presidency as the failure Newsweek says it is. For that reason, it could be a turning point in the election.

Ronald Kessler is chief Washington correspondent of Newsmax.com. He is the New York Times bestselling author of books on the Secret Service, FBI, and CIA.

Palin On Paul

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.

When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale. The Golden State once boasted the entrepreneurial innovation of Silicon Valley, the American creative engine of the arts, economically powerful and beautiful cities from San Francisco to San Diego, and fertile farmlands that helped feed the nation. Now it is descending into financial ruin accompanied by an exodus of middle class Californians leaving for other states. As one writer put it, California’s “fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape.”

Obama’s vision for America will make the rest of the country look like California, minus the beautiful scenery and warm weather.

US must recall it is not just any country

By Condoleezza Rice

In this young century, the 9/11 attacks, the global financial crisis and the unrest in the Arab world have struck at the heart of vital US interests. If Americans want the tectonic plates of the international system to settle in a way that makes the world safer, freer and more prosperous, the US must overcome its reluctance to lead. We will have to stand up for and promote the power and promise of free markets and free peoples, and affirm that American pre-eminence safeguards rather than impedes global progress.

The list of US foreign policy challenges is long and there will be a temptation to respond tactically to each one. But today’s headlines and posterity’s judgment often differ. The task at hand is to strengthen the pillars of our influence and act with the long arc of history in mind.


In the Middle East we must patiently use our aid, expertise and influence to support the creation of inclusive democratic institutions. The fundamental problem in the region is the absence of institutions that can bridge the Sunni-Shia divide, and protect the rights of women and minorities. Even as we make necessary immediate choices – including arming the Syrian rebels – we must insist upon inclusive politics. The US cannot afford to stand aside; regional powers will bring their own agendas that could exacerbate confessional divisions.

As we work with reformers across the region, we should not forget that Iraq has the kind of institutions that are meant to overcome these divisions. Given its geostrategic importance, the chaos engulfing its neighbours and Iran’s destructive influence, our re-engagement with Baghdad is sorely needed.

The US needs to turn again to the development of responsible and democratic sovereigns beyond the Middle East. The George W. Bush administration doubled aid spending worldwide and quadrupled it to Africa. It channelled assistance to countries that were investing in their people’s health and education, governing wisely and democratically, building open economies and fighting corruption. Ultimately, these states will make the transition from aid to private investment, becoming net contributors to the international economy and global security. US tax dollars will have been well spent.

We must also not lose sight of how democracy is solidifying in the western hemisphere. US assistance and trade policy can help democracies in Latin America to provide an answer to populist dictators. At the same time, we must speak out for dissidents – from Cuba to Venezuela to Nicaragua. Mexico needs attention across a broad agenda that includes the devastating security challenge that threatens both it and the US.

The US “pivot” to Asia (a region that had hardly been abandoned) has focused heavily on security issues. America should remain the pre-eminent military power in the Pacific. But consider this: China has signed free-trade agreements with 15 nations over the past eight years and has explored FTAs with some 20 others; since 2009 the US has ratified three FTAs negotiated during the Bush administration and it has continued – but not concluded – talks on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which began in 2008. One of the US’s best assets in managing China’s rise is its regional economic engagement.

A robust free trade policy will strengthen our economy and influence abroad, as will developing our domestic resources, such as the North American energy platform. High oil prices empower Venezuela, Russia and Iran. We are developing alternative sources of energy but they will not replace hydrocarbons for a long time. It is a gift that much of our demand – possibly all of it – can be met domestically and in co-operation with US allies, Mexico and Canada.

Most important, we need to reassure our friends across the globe. The rush to court adversaries has overshadowed relations with trusted allies. Our engagement with Europe has been sporadic and sometimes dismissive. Strategic ties with India, Brazil and Turkey have neither strengthened nor deepened in recent years. Hugo Chávez and the Iranians have bitten off the extended hand of friendship. There is no Palestinian state because it will only come through negotiation with a secure Israel that is confident in its relationship with the US. The decision to abandon missile defence sites in Poland and the Czech Republic, to “reset” relations with Russia was pocketed by Vladimir Putin who quickly returned to his anti-American ways. Friends must be able to trust in the consistency of our commitment to them.

Finally we cannot forget that strength begins at home. Global leadership rests upon a strong economy built on fiscal discipline and robust private sector growth. Ultimately, our success depends on mobilising human potential, something the US has done better than any country in history. Ours has been a story of possibility, not grievance and entitlement. Ambitious people have come from all over the world to seek out the opportunities America provides. The absence of a humane and sustainable national immigration policy threatens this great asset.

Our talent has historically come from every part of American society, without regard to class and economic circumstance. But when a child’s zip code determines whether she will get a good education, we are losing generations to poverty and despair. The crisis in US education is the greatest single threat to our national strength and cohesion.

The American people have to be inspired to lead again. They need to be reminded that the US is not just any other country: we are exceptional in the clarity of our conviction that free markets and free peoples hold the key to the future, and in our willingness to act on those beliefs. Failure to do so would leave a vacuum, likely filled by those who will not champion a balance of power that favours freedom. That would be a tragedy for American interests and values and those who share them.

On Obama


Obama: Stealth Muslim



America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President
When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.
Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.


1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:
  • April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren't like them.” 1

  • February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011. 2

  • April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus' name be covered when he is making his speech. 3

  • May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. 4

  • April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three. 5

  • October 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions. 6

  • November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. 7

  • January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. 8

  • February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. 9

  • April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. 10

  • August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception. 11

  • November 2011 – Obama opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial. 12

  • November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, Obama studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech. 13

  • December 2011 – The Obama administration denigrates other countries' religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights. 14

Proof on Obama

This is an except from Obama's failed book. It speaks volumes on who he really is:


Standing up to China

Posted: September 15, 2009
12:20 am Eastern

As expected (as I expected, anyway) President Obama has slapped fairly significant tariffs on Chinese tires that have been flooding the U.S. market and forcing American factories to close and American workers to lose their jobs. The decision to take the unanimous recommendation of the International Trade Commission (ITC) came last Friday.

Obama deserves praise for standing up to China in a way many previous presidents and major presidential candidates would not. President George W. Bush rejected four recommendations from the ITC to impose protective tariffs on China, and Sen. John McCain repeatedly has made it clear he opposes any sort of import tariffs.

Back in August of 2008 when the textile industry was seeking renewed protections against Chinese imports, the Wall Street Journal reported McCain wasn't expected to support establishing any new trade barriers. Then-candidate Obama, meanwhile, signaled he would be willing to dust off a U.S. law provision that allows America to protect her industries from Chinese competition. In fact, Obama's decision to impose new duties on Chinese tires marks the first time the United States has utilized special "safeguard" provisions in order to protect an American industry from Chinese competition.

Here are the facts of the tire case. China exported $2.2 billion worth of tires in 2008. The number of tires imported from China jumped from 14.6 million in 2004 to 46 million in 2008. Four domestic tire plants already have shut their doors in the last two years, causing more than 5,000 American workers to join the ranks of the unemployed. More jobs are slated to be lost this year as well due to the influx of Chinese tires.

The ITC recommended a staggered tariff structure for three years starting with a 55 percent tariff the first year, a 45 percent tariff the second year and a 35 percent tariff the third year. Obama went with a lighter tariff schedule of 35 percent the first year, 30 percent the second year, and 25 percent the third year, which will be added on to the current 4 percent tariff on imported tires.

Rather than get into the tempting ideological impact battle of so-called free trade and free markets versus protectionism and regulation, I'd like to make sense of the dollars-and-cents impact on our economy. That's really where the rubber meets the road on this tire case, because it's more about the impact on U.S. jobs and U.S. Treasury tax revenue than anything else that will determine if these tariffs on Chinese tires are good or bad for the economy.

Let's start with analyzing what we've lost already in the absence of tariffs before we look at what we might stand to gain from the new tariffs, beginning with the 5,000 jobs already lost in the U.S. tire industry. Let's assume that an American tire maker brings home $50,000 a year in wages. Using a conservative 25 percent tax rate, that represents $12,500 lost tax revenue per laid-off worker for the U.S. Treasury. Five thousand workers times $12,500 each equals $62.5 million total lost tax revenue.

Randomness

The Five Biggest Workplace Myths
by Penelope Trunk

As I've written before, the workplace is experiencing massive cultural shifts due to changes in both demographics and technology. Consequently, there are new rules for getting what you want out of work.

But some people still continue to give advice that only applies in the old, outdated office. Here are the five biggest myths about the workplace today, and new ways to think about the issues they raise:

Myth 1: Getting a promotion is good
Promotions aren't created with you in mind -- they're created with the company in mind. But you need to pick the steps that are right for you. You deserve a customized career, so be wary of all promotions.

Most people who are good at their non-management jobs won't excel as leaders. It takes a very specific personality type to do better as a leader than as someone who's actually doing the work. The irony is that people who are conscientious about getting their work done are promoted into leadership positions that don't value conscientiousness so much as being open to new ideas.

Also, the average salary increase is 4 percent. Is that going to change your life in any meaningful way? Getting a promotion is so last century. Instead, negotiate for training, mentoring, or flex time. These are all things that will really improve your life and your career.

Myth 2: Hide gaps in your work history
The most productive, organized, and excited people are those who respect ideas enough to take a break and have some. In the best cases, a gap in your résumé is evidence that you're both thoughtful and productive.

So it's not whether you have gaps that matters, but whether you talk about them well. Tell a good story about your accomplishments.

A gap is only bad if you go back into the workforce with nothing to show for it. As long as your résumé shows progress, curiosity, and increasing responsibility, you'll be fine. And it's very hard to show these things without switching things up on a regular basis.

Myth 3: Sexual harassment laws protect you
News flash: If you report sexual harassment it'll probably hurt your career. The law protects companies from getting sued for sexual harassment, and human resources professionals are trained to circle the company and protect it as soon as someone reports a problem. This isn't to blame people in HR -- there's nothing else they can do because the law dictates this behavior.

When you do report harassment, the most likely thing to happen is that you'll lose your job because of retaliation. Yes, that's illegal, but it's pretty much impossible to prove in court. But let's say you can sue and win: You'll get a settlement that's too small to allow you to retire, you'll be virtually unemployable in your field and career, and your harasser will probably do the same thing to your replacement.

Before you accuse me of being indifferent to social justice, please know that I'm not saying this is OK. I'm saying that unless you're independently wealthy, you can't afford to single-handedly face down the injustice of sexual harassment laws. So unless you're in physical danger, figure out how to make the best of a bad situation and move away from the harasser if possible.

Myth 4: Your first job out of college matters a lot
Don't place too much importance on your first job -- you'll have many more. Most people have 8 jobs before they turn 30, and that's fine. It's nearly impossible to know what career will be a good fit for you until you start trying things.

So give yourself the latitude to try a lot. And don't get hung up on a big soul search -- you don't need to know the meaning of life to land a great job, just the meaning of hard work.

Entry-level jobs typically can't cover the cost of rent, college loan payments, and insurance premiums, all of which are rising faster than wages, so moving back into your parent's house is a smart step toward finding a career that's right for you.

If you don't have to worry about paying rent, you have more flexibility to take a job that feels right but pays very poorly. The rise of the prestigious but unpaid internship intersects perfectly with trend to move back home.

Myth 5: You'll be rewarded if you do a good job
You'll actually be rewarded only if you're likable. So spend your days trying to figure out what people need and what people want, and how you can help them. Empathy makes you likable.

The people who don't want to have to deal with kindness will complain. But for most of us, it's big relief to know that the workplace of the new millennium demands more kindness and respect than ever before.

Dopes and Thugs

THE DOPES
The current governor of Washington State (Christine Gregoire) is doing a excellent job getting her constituents high by promoting marijuana use in the Evergreen State. By deliberately flouting federal laws on drug use, the governor has failed utterly to protect the citizens of the state from hopped-up kids driving and killing people at random. Driving under the influence will surely skyrocket in Washington state now that the governor and legislature are behind the legalization of smoking pot, and that exactly what the so-called "medical marijuana" laws are. Most states that have adopted this absurd sneaky way to legalize dope have seen it move far beyond legitimate medical use to general use by the public and California is a good example of this failed policy.


In California the so-called "medical marijuana" has totally failed. What started as a system to provide those suffering from cancer and chronic pain led to a state-wide acceptance and use of dope by most ordinary citizens. In fact if you hang out in any of the parks in California you will easily run across someone high on dope who will offer it to you free of charge. Massive use of mind-altering drugs across California has surely contributed to some of the failings of that "failed state"; when your high on dope, you don't care what the government is doing. Fully-aware and un-medicated citizens are what the government fears. Just look at the book 1984 or Brave New World the government ENCOURAGED drug use to keep the masses in line and out of power while they ran the nation for themselves and their own agenda.

In Washington state the legislature also (luckily) made itself immune from prosecution from any medical marijuana users driving under the influence and possibly killing someone. It is my opinion that anyone who needs "medical dope" should automatically loose their license to drive; this will surely cut into teenagers seeking a prescription for medical marijuana (teens love to drive).

On the federal level the US Government should seek to arrest anyone who endorses the use of marijuana in the United States, regardless of status or post. This means that the incoming Republican President (and hopefully Senate) should begin prosecution of the several key people who have promoted the use, growth, and marketing of marijuana as drug dealers. Governor Christine Gregoire should be the first to be the first to be arrested. Gregoire actively promoted the legalized and use of dope in Washington state by filing a petition with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration asking the agency to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule 2 drug, which will allow its use for treatment – prescribed by doctors and filled by pharmacists. This was just a sneaky way for her Democratic clique in Olympia to bypass federal law and let the citizens of her state toke up. They should also arrest the grande dame of medical cannabis in Washington state, Joanna McKee, who started the so-called "medical marajuana" movement in WA state. They should also arrest the members of the ACLU in the state that are undermining federal law and the self-awareness of the citizenry as well as arresting Rep. Dickerson and Sen. Margarita for introducing companion bills that allowed the production, distribution, and sale of marijuana in Washington state.

Individual states cannot legalize drug use for their citizens, now matter how stupid (or high) they apparently seem to be and the governor of the great state of Washington should be made to pay for her criminal activities in this area.


THE THUGS
The thugs who run Russia (mainly the iconic idiot Vladimir Putin) have again sided with a murderous governmental regime in Syria by sending troops to make sure the Syrian military can accomplish mass murder in the streets of Homs and Damascus without being stopped by the humanitarian organizations of the West (and NATO). By sending troops to protect their Syrian ally, Moscow has begun a dangerous high-stakes game of confrontation that can only end in War. Putin has long sought a conflict with the United States after the Soviet Union's fall from power (he was a KGB agent during that era). He has tried during his years in office as the ruler of Russia to prevent the United Nations and the West from intervening in nations around the world that engaged in genocide and continues his admiration of murderous thugs like the President of Syria, Bashir Assad. Sadly the Russians as a state and people refuse to come into the 21st century and oppose mass murder, genocide, and extremism, abilities they themselves became masters of over the last 500 years. In fact, Russia and China both have killed far more people in wars and genocidal attacks than the rest of the world combined and continue to do so through their proxies like North Korea, Iran, and Syria to this day. The Russians apparently will remain the thugs they have been for the generations, and the only reason anyone even listens to them anymore is because they have nuclear weapons (and alliances with the most hostile and genocidal regimes on the planet). Hopefully one day, in the future, the average Russian will wake up and get sick of the cruel totalitarians that seem to always run (and ruin) their nation....but that time will be long in coming. Until then, the world will have to unfortunately deal with the Thug Nation as best it can but lets not do business with them if we can help it!

SANTORUM SHOCKER: 7 Takeaways From Last Night's Three-State Sweep

by: ColoradoPeakPolitics
Wed Feb 08, 2012 at 11:18 23 MST

Last night's three state Santorum sweep was a shocker to say the least. While his wins in Minnesota and Missouri were somewhat expected based on prior published polling, Santorum's out-of-nowhere victory in Colorado stunned pundits and politicos across the board.

We had been predicting for a few days that Santorum would have a strong finish at the caucuses, stronger than many in the chattering class had accounted for in their analysis. Yet even we didn't see the win coming.

He worked the state harder than anyone, positioned himself as the true Romney alternative and rode a last minute wave of momentum into a momentous victory.

Here are 7 takeaways we took from last night's Santorum shocker.

1. Colorado conservatives' independence: Just as Colorado conservatives sent a clear message to John McCain in 2008 that they weren't willing to sign on to his inevitable candidacy, overwhelmingly voting for Romney, in 2012 they reminded the country of their rugged Western independence, giving the race to 2012's version of 2008 Romney, Rick Santorum. Romney did not work the state hard enough giving voters a reason to support him, but rather was trying to ride the wave of inevitability. That doesn't fly here.

2. Endorsements matter, just not from politicians: While Romney had all of the statewide elected officials, 16 state legislators and the full stable of former elected officials like Hank Brown and Bill Owens, Santorum had the folks that conservatives really care about. In 2012, Michelle Malkin's endorsement matters far more to conservatives than Mark Waller's or Larry Liston's. Malkin, who has twice as many Twitter followers as Santorum's Presidential campaign, and has been ranked the most influential blogger in politics, was an enormously powerful force in branding Santorum as the leading anti-Romney. In the future, we suggest candidates spend less time seeking John Suthers' endorsement and more trying to convince those that the grassroots listens to.

3. Newt Gingrich is dead in the water: Just as we predicted the day of the caucus, perhaps the most significant long-term impact of last night's results is that Gingrich has lost the mantle of the conservative alternative to Romney. He wasn't on the ballot in Missouri, finished a distant fourth in Minnesota and was a complete non-factor in Colorado's race. With $600,000 in debt, his campaign will watch in agony as Santorum sucks up millions in grassroots fundraising over the next couple of weeks that they direly need to run ads in the expensive media markets of Super Tuesday. Santorum now has the Mo', the money and the mantle. And Gingrich won't even have a debate to shine in for another two weeks.

4. PPP sucks at polling Colorado: Democrat polling firm, Public Policy Polling (PPP), has an atrocious track record in Colorado. Last fall they polled the state but oversampled Democrats by 8-points, rendering their results meaningless. The night before Colorado Republicans went to their precinct cacucus, PPP released a Colorado poll with Romney at 37, Santorum 27, Gingrich 21, and Paul at 13. The real results? Santorum 40, Romney 35, Gingrich 13, Paul 12. PPP got it embarrassingly wrong. Note this for when they show polls with Obama leading in Colorado in the next couple of months.

5. Ron Paul's supporters aren't voting Republicans. As AP reporter Kristen Wyatt noted on Twitter, Ron Paul's rallies had more people than he got votes last night. As we've seen in other states that have elections closed to only registered Republicans, Ron Paul vastly underperformed expectations. That seems to be because his support comes from a young demographic that doesn't tend to be registered as Republican. While he surpassed his showing of 8.4% in 2008, he still came in a distant fourth place. As voters had to be registered as Republicans since December, they had to prepare months in advance, something not conducive to the younger demographic. In Iowa, voters could change their registration the day of the caucus, which likely boosted Paul's finish there significantly. In Colorado, he had no such luck.

6. Romney can't nail it in anywhere. With no TV ads, little direct mail, and only a modest ground effort, Romney thought he could win with a light Colorado foot print and he was so very wrong. Some pundits have said that he can only win with negative TV blitzes, forgetting that Presidential elections are almost entirely defined by negative ads on TV. Even the supposed positive campaign of Obama ran more negative ads than any Presidential campaign in history. Santorum is certainly going to see his fair share of attack ads in the coming weeks, but Romney will need to not forget the lesson he keeps learning, which is that he can't take anything for granted.

7. This race still has some juice left in it. While Romney was hoping February would be a coronation, it instead is shaping up to be a hard fought slog. Romney is still the nearly prohibitive favorite to be the nominee, but last night put a serious chink in his armor of inevitability. He has not closed the deal with the base by a long shot. Conservatives have not been convinced that he can champion their cause in his campaign. After his gaffe on the 'very poor,' even establishment Republicans began to doubt his image as the more professional disciplined candidate to take on Barack Obama. Between needing to prove his conservative bona fides and demonstrate his superiority as a candidate through message discipline and campaign organization, Romney has some serious challenges ahead of him before he can claim the nomination.

How To Ruin A Business

Today I was shocked when I went into the local Goodwill to find some of their prices have gone up over 300%! Back in the day shopping at thrift stores used to be a place to find great bargains but corporate management in the Goodwill organization has decided to make the free donations they receive priced so high that poor people cannot afford them anymore. When I spoke to them, their argument was the economy was doing poorly and they also wanted to have the same prices as their chief competitor, Value "something". I argued that tripling their prices overnight will only cost them customer and that I wouldn't be back but their attitude was they could care less. This outrageous move by Goodwill deeply offends because people donate their goods to this organization for FREE; Goodwill should respond by not charging an arm and a leg for these items in their stores. I will now avoid Goodwill Stores like the plague and shop more reasonable thrift shops like St. Vincent de Paul or Salvation Army. You watch, in 10 years Goodwill will be closed because of this greedy increase in prices; the perfect way to ruin a business that's been around for decades.

Also, my family went out recently to eat at a mom-and-pop Mexican joint, only to discover they bought their supplies from the local grocery store like we do. The lady working the counter pulled out soft-shell wraps that clearly showed an Albertsons label, making my sister very angry. Why in the world should we pay 4 times the price for food we can easily buy in our local supermarket? When you go out to eat, you want something special, something great, not food you can simply buy yourself for a cheaper price. To all store owners: if you are going to buy stuff from the local grocery store, at least take it out of the original package before serving it up in front of your customers. One of the reasons I love love love Chipolte Shops is they make everything right in front of you, the delicious smells of spicy foods surrounding you as you wait. Try a Chipolte today, they do it right!

Gen Y: "What Chelsea Doesn't Know"

I am writing this in response to the savage personal attacks by my in-law's kid Chelsea against my sister who supports traditional marriage.

In the state of Washington the out-of-contact-with-reality clique that rules from the capital building in Olympia is passing "gay marriage", regardless of what the people of the state want. This unilateral act comes in the face of two decades of the legislature giving gays equal rights: from all sorts of legal protections to civil unions, gays have gained political ground in Washington. The state's underlying domestic partnership law, which the Legislature passed in 2007, provided hospital visitation rights, the ability to authorize autopsies and organ donations, and inheritance rights when there is no will. In 2009, the Legislature passed, and voters later upheld, a bill that greatly expanded those rights and was known as the "everything-but-marriage" bill. In light of these advances for gays, the affront against traditional marriage by shoving it down Washontonians throats is unacceptable. The law will surely be overturned by popular amendment in the next election cycle.

In California, opponents of gay marriage overturned the law through the democratic process and faced savage attacks, verbally, physically, and emotionally, from gays and their supporters, including terroristic attacks of fake anthrax against the Mormon Church in Utah. In the months leading up to the election in California, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom stated in a speech regarding same-sex marriage: "This door's wide open now. It's going to happen, whether you like it or not." This arrogant attitude galvanized voters in the Sunshine State.

Since the election, the FBI is still looking into the phony bioterror mailings but they should look into the vicious campaign waged against those that supported Proposition 8 AFTER the vote was concluded. Gay fanatics took information using state information on donors who financially supported Prop8 and began a personal and vile terror campaign designed to silence those that believe in traditional marriage. From boycotting Christian businesses to down-right death threats, pro-marriage supporters have been attacked since the vote in November 2008 using fascist tactics not seen since the Nazi campaigns against the Jews in WW2. This sort of behavior is unAmerican and criminal and people in the state of Washington have begun to seriously think about changing the laws in this state so that a campaign of harassment cannot occur here.

Gay marriage is really a joke; most gay men will NEVER be married, nor support it. Its only being used as a tool and tactic to attack and destroy the people who support it the most: Christians, Mormons, and Catholics (religious people). This is part of a broad Left-wing effort to silence those on the Right. Its a technique right out of Saul Alinsky's book on how to destroy people who disagree with you. Gen Y kinds, who know nothing and have experienced nothing in life, have been suckered into believing that traditional marriage should be trampled on, an institution that has been the same for thousands and thousands of years. Ask yourself, why should something that has remained sacred to many for thousands of years be changed? Sadly, the college professors who brainwash the Gen Y crowd don't ask this important question; they cloak these ideological campaign in spurious information like high divorce rates somehow negate traditional marriage.

In the end, respect for other people is being destroyed by destructive personal attacks like these and should be avoided by open-minded people who don't have ideological blinders on.


1)Christians and the Mormon Church faced terrorist attacks for standing up for marriage in California

2)Divorce rates do not nullify the value and importance of marriage to many

3)Ramming your ideology down someones throat is unAmerican

The Questions

15 Questions The Mainstream Media Would Ask Barack Obama If He Were A Republican


During the practically endless series of Republican debates, we have heard almost every question imaginable asked to Republican candidates – if by every question imaginable, you mean horribly slanted, often irrelevant questions designed to make them look bad and help Obama. We've heard questions about contraceptives, religion, Newt's angry ex-wife, Gardasil, etc., etc., etc. So, what would happen if the mainstream media treated Barack Obama the exact same way that they treat Republicans? The questions might sound a little something like this.

1) Numerous Mexican citizens and an American citizen have been killed with weapons knowingly provided to criminals by our own government during Operation Fast and Furious. If Eric Holder was aware that was going on, do you think he should step down as Attorney General? Were you aware that was going on and if so, shouldn’t you resign?

2) In 2010 you said Solyndra, which gave your campaign a lot of money, was "leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future." Today, Solyndra is bankrupt and the taxpayers lost $500 million on loans that your administration was well aware might never be paid off when you made them. What do you say to people who say this is evidence of corruption in your administration?

3) Unions invested a lot of time and money in helping to get you elected. In return, they gained majority control of Chrysler, the taxpayers lost 14 billion dollars on General Motors, and General Motors received a special 45 billion dollar tax break. What do you say to people who view this as corruption on a scale never before seen in American history?

4) Through dubious means, you and your allies in Congress managed to push through an incredibly unpopular health care bill that helped lead to the worst election night for the Democratic Party in 50 years. Since the bill has passed, many of your claims about the bill have proven to be untrue. For example, we now know the bill won't lower costs and despite your assurances to the contrary, big companies like McDonald's say they may drop health care because of the health care reform. Since the American people have rejected your health care reform and it doesn't do what you said it would, shouldn't you work with the Republicans to repeal it?

5) When you took office, gas was $1.79 per gallon. Since then, you've demonized the oil industry, dramatically slowed offshore drilling, blocked ANWR, and killed the Keystone Pipeline. Now, gas is $3.34 per gallon. How much higher do you anticipate driving gas prices?

6) Occupy Wall Street has been protesting against Wall Street and the richest 1 percent in America. You are in the top 1 percent of income earners in America and you have collected more cash from Wall Street than any other President in history. So, aren't you exactly the sort of politician that Occupy Wall Street wants to get rid of?

7) How do you decide which foreign leaders to submissively bow towards and why do you think that's appropriate for an American President?

8) If they could, don't you think the Nobel Committee would take back the Nobel Peace Prize that you were awarded?

9) You made bipartisanship one of the central themes of your campaign in 2008. Yet, you've worked to push bills through Congress with almost no Republican support, spent much less time negotiating with Congress than George Bush, and you've said things like, "But, I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking." Why did you decide to break your campaign promise to pursue bipartisanship?

10) America lost its AAA credit rating for the first time under your watch. What do you think you should have done differently to have prevented that historic failure?

11) You cut more than 500 billion dollars out of Medicare to fund your wildly unpopular health care reform bill. Given that Medicare is running in the red already, don't you think it's irresponsible to cut money out of one entitlement program, that millions of seniors depend on -- to put it into a risky new entitlement program?

12) Back in July, you said, "Nobody’s looking to raise taxes right now. We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out years." Since you plan to raise taxes if you're elected and you've had kind words for a value added tax, shouldn't every American expect a tax increase if you're reelected?

13) Why should the American people reelect you when your 10 year budget saddles America with more debt than all previous Presidents combined?

14) Your stimulus bill cost more in real dollars than the moon landing and the interstate highway system combined. What do we have to show for all of that money spent?

15) Members of your administration promised that the trillion dollar stimulus would keep unemployment under 8 percent. Instead, we've had 35+ months of 8% and above unemployment. Doesn't that mean we wasted a trillion dollars on nothing?

Reelect Obama? WHY?
