Common sense this week, is being flushed down the toilet bowl along with San Francisco’s ageing sewer pipes, and the answers to what seems obvious to those of us over the age of 20, are becoming as nebulous as one of our “President’s” speeches.
So, let’s start with a fun one shall we? I have a reader, who thankfully catches me on all my mistakes, especially when it comes to what I get in my email. Mostly, I am just amused by my emails, and if I like the content, I post it….and share it…and sometimes they might be ‘urban’ legends, and sometimes they are true, more often than not, they are not, but there you go.
Nevertheless, to spend hours trying to figure out the truth to an email, is not I have time for, because sometimes I don’t even have time to find out what DAY it is….(not important in the speck of universal knowledge to my mind.) so SNOPES was suggested…and the reason I don’t always trust SNOPES is because, I have read, that George Soros funds the site under Media Matters..and just to show that SNOPES has a bias and I am NOT making this up– some parents are concerned about that too: The Girl Scouts are being told to check facts on SNOPES, which has big liberal bias: And the Girls Scouts are being told to consult it for all information:
The book referred young readers to Media Matters for America as one of the primary sources for debunking lies and deceit, as the organization is known for its overtly partisan — and progressive — stances. The Internet is a breeding ground for “urban legends,” which are false stories told as if true, and then spread quickly. Next time you receive a txt or a forwarded e-mail about something terrible that happened to someone, try to confirm it. The fact-checking site snopes.com investigates everything from urban legends to “news” articles and posts its findings.
So, I’m not sure how bias they are, because, some of the stuff they report truly is right..but, until someone sends me a website that is NOT bias—we all have to refer to our own common sense.
As the Trump says in his book, “The Art of the Deal:” Trust you gut.
And speaking of Commons Sense:
And then, almost in the same breath, it was all over the news: Uh…by the way, Puerto Rico is going to default soon also, but while Greece won’t do much to us, Puerto Rico WILL affect the United States…because it is about 76 billion in debt, where as Detroit was only 8 billion, and WHY the United States is responsible I have no clue because, somebody explain to me how can Puerto Rico be part of the United States but not a state? And also, did politicians just claim it was part of us because most of the young people from Puerto Rico live in New York, and that just leaves old people who WE will have to support in Puerto Rico, and the big companies just wanted the cheap labor…so they just said that Puerto Rico is part of the U.S., and how does this work again?
Nobody Knows. Where’s Geraldo to confuse us when you need him?
And speaking of confusing: Obama wants to spend more money. He just said that everyone should be paid overtime in the United States. He gave everyone a raise, and it was reported that small businesses are going to have a hard time doing this, and can someone tell me when did it become law that the President of the United States can tell businesses what to do and how much they have to pay their employees?
Not only that, how long has Obama been saying he was going to FIX the infrastructure? Isn’t that what his big stimulus was all about? Shovel ready jobs? And he is STILL talking and making promises about it? What? Do Politicians sit around and go, “You can promise ANYTHING and repeat it ever year! The average citizen has a memory of about one month at the most. Most of the time, they don’t even remember what you say this week to week.”
And speaking of gerbils,
Here’s a gerbil statement if I ever read one:
“The United States may not be facing full-scale financial insolvency at the levels Greece is experiencing, but with the Social Security Disability program facing bankruptcy within a year and the Highway Trust Fund expected to be insolvent by the end of the summer, it’s obvious we have to be wiser with the federal pocketbook if we want to have any hope of getting the budget under control.”
“Hope?” They stop counting the debt clock about two years ago. They have NO idea where half the money that is spent even goes. They have been known to misplace trillions, and that’s in EVERY department of the government.
Nobody keeps track of it.
Yes. Common sense tells most of us that there IS no common sense in Washington D.C.
Common sense tells us, we should just dig a deep ditch around the Capitol, and let it float out to sea. Maybe it would bump into Puerto Rico and finally merge.
Let’s start with Karl Rove. As Phyllis Schlafly has so astutely pointed out, Karl has helped lose the elections for the last three Presidential GOP candidates. He really needs to go. But he’s still around? What the heck?
He advised John McCain: He lost. He advised Romney: He lost. He even advised John Edwards, and look how that turned out. Karl Rove has managed to sink more than a few honest tea party candidates and despite his overwhelming efforts to kill the voice of the true conservatives in this country, we managed to put quite a few in the House anyway.
So, did those guys lose because Rove has lost his touch? Or did they lose because maybe…just maybe…Karl Rove ‘s main job has ALWAYS been to pave the way for one more Bush Presidency?
“Think about how far we’ve come since 1963. The whole weight of the government throughout the South was to impede finding and holding and bringing to justice the men who perpetrated the (Birmingham) bombing.”
(Sounds JUST like Obama, doesn’t it?)
“Now maybe there’s some magic law that will keep us from having more of these. I mean basically the only way to guarantee that we will dramatically reduce the acts of violence invoking guns is to basically remove guns from society, and until somebody gets enough “oomp” to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen.”
I can think of some “oomp” I’d like to deliver to the little dweeb.
Yes, tiny Karl is out for your guns. Remember: He represents the Bush family, NOT Obama…but when it comes to disarming the population, they are best buds.
And then there’s that lovely AP photo, that had a gun pointing at Ted Cruz’s head, but the photographer claims it was just a picture. A LOT of people were very upset at the obvious message.
Imagine that this same AP photographer, instead of shifting a foot to the left or the right, framed a picture with the Senator’s nose almost touching the barrel, as a closer crop makes clear.
Imagine that this photographer, even though he took a few shots with this silly setup, took many more without it. Imagine that his editor–unnamed and insulated from public backlash–chose not one but three of those photos to distribute to AP’s clients.
Is it Karl Rove…who was once subpoenaed to hand over emails, but claimed executive privilege and resigned first and never handed over a single one? (Sound familiar?)
A man who HATES conservatives, and has done more to hand over our country to the liberals than any other man? NOW he wants our guns?
Or is it AP, which is supposed to be a trusted news station, and if this was Hillary Clinton, than you can BET yesterday’s losing lottery ticket that whoever took that picture of a gun pointing at Obama’s or Hillary’s head, would not only be fired, but probably doing jail time in Cuba right now?
Congratulations Karl! You win the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week. I’d send you a chalkboard with a list of the total number of disasters you have caused the country, but it would be so big and long, it wouldn’t fit in your little tiny dweebie car.
Or do you ride around in big limo’s to make up for your obvious imperfections?
Or do you just ride Rino’s
Yes world…She is a Sherman Tank. She is tough. A bulldog of a woman. Don’t believe me? Look at that face. Loretta Lynch, it going to prove that woman can be bad-ass.
Our new Attorney General is going to go after the criminals, not here in the United States but—
…in World Soccer.
Nobody Wonders why she isn’t going after the criminals in the IRS, our veterans administration, our state department, or the White House? And…how about the Clintons?
No…world soccer. THAT’s where the corruption is most dangerous.
By the way…when did the Attorney General’s job become policing the rest of the world?
Loretta…let it be known that international soccer, that subject of corruption that has been on EVERY American’s hearts, minds, and lips, had to be cleaned up. To the Obama administration this is MUCH more important. After all, he really can’t go after ISIS so the next best thing is…soccer.
May 27, 2015 Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department unsealed a 47-count indictment Wednesday morning laden with racketeering, corruption, and conspiracy charges against 14 defendants associated with FIFA, the world soccer association, and international soccer organizations.
“Many of the individuals and organizations we will describe today were entrusted with keeping soccer open and accessible to all,” she said. “They were expected to uphold the rules that keep soccer honest and to protect the integrity of the game. Instead they corrupted the business of worldwide soccer to serve their interests and to enrich themselves.”
“The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted both abroad and here in the United States,” Lynch said in a statement. “It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks. And it has profoundly harmed a multitude of victims, from the youth leagues and developing countries that should benefit from the revenue generated by the commercial rights these organizations hold, to the fans at home and throughout the world whose support for the game makes those rights valuable.”
“corruption that is rampart, systemic, and deep rooted.”
Okay, You can’t make this up. Our new Attorney General is outraged that the youth soccer leagues all over the world have been hurt.
Can I get a vowel here? Are pigs flying in the streets of Pennsylvania Ave? Is April fool’s day now been moved onto our daily calendar? Have predatory worms started talking to Joe Biden?
Did someone find a fish sucking bananas in Lincoln’s bedroom? Is the sun still yellow?
Is it me? Is the suggested fact that soccer children are suffering around the world not quite the same as a veteran dying in the parking lot of a veterans hospital in our own country because nobody would come out and pick him up? Our veterans are dying because the VA is so corrupt, and yet nothing, MS Lynch?
Not to mention, did any of those boys on Wall Street go to jail?
How about prosecuting some of them?
Loretta is concerned that youth international soccer…is in danger. It’s right up there with climate change.
The indictment alleges that marketing executives paid out $150 million in kickbacks and bribes in order to secure rights to major soccer tournaments.
Yes, and HOW many millions in kickbacks did the Clinton’s get just this year alone?
To prove she means business, our new Attorney General told everyone that some of these peoples used his various position in international soccer for “personal gain.”
Is that bacon fat in the kitchen smoking yet?
And just when you think that Al Gore might have real competition in the Ozone Wonderland of Black Rabbit holes, another one of our leaders, FBI Director, James Comey, said, and I quote”
“You will be held accountable for that corruption. Nobody is above or beyond the law.”
Since WHEN does anybody in our government hold anybody accountable for corruption? You CANNOT make this stuff up.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Why didn’t Eric Holder grab this before he left? This is good stuff. I mean, if you want to get points with the American public, be a tough gangbuster. Go after the bad guys, go after foreign bad guys. Go after Middle Eastern bad guys. Go after Swiss bad guys. This would have made Holder a popular guy. And now Loretta, this is a bouquet he gave her.
She comes in and she gets a great case to break.
A great case? How much are we paying this lady?
So, what’s in this for Obama and his Lynch? Some of that “international” money bag? Are they joining the Clinton way of bribes and extortion?
Nobody Wins, when the United States President and his Attorney General are more concerned about kids little league foreign soccer camps, than the be-headings of Christians.
Ms Alice Lynch has fallen down the rabbit hole of absurdity. It’s the same old “Keep your eye over here, while the REAL corruption is happening right in front of you.”
Loretta Lynch—paving the way for the safe use of …a safe soccer ball world.
Yes, I’m sure of it. Pigs are flying. Ever since Congress impeached Bill Clinton for grouping an intern instead of the more serious crime of giving North Korea plutonium, we have all been on a travel log to never, never, never, never, land of insanity.
Soccer. Who knew we were in so much danger?
I find it incredible amazing that so many people make fun of Alex Jones and Michael Savage. They are just two men who love their country. That’s pretty clear. So what if they are worried? Maybe we should all be.
Obama did say he wanted a civilian army, and yet, nobody in America believes it. And the Jews, I’m sure, could never imagine being gassed.
I find the ignorance of world history in the typical American simply staggering.
Anyway, I listen to them all. If you think that our government can protect you after 9/11 because they developed the NSA…and your Homeland security is fool-proof even though it is run by a Muslim, and you wonder why Obama keeps acting against America, then you also think Bruce Jenner makes a sweet woman. There is no hope for you.
(Sorry, I just got finished reading all the comments below this video on Youtube.)
Where’s my bunker? LOL!
Congratulations Michael! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for just thinking, and I for one, have always loved to hear you think.
I’m going to have to put that book on my reading list.
Keeping people poor can get you BIG government money. Follow the money, as the old saying goes, and you will find the real reason for most everything.
The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.
President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.
And let’s not leave out the big money everybody is getting in Ferguson, including the lawyers…
Ferguson, Missouri, is paying an attorney $1,335 an hour to help the St. Louis suburb negotiate and possibly litigated reforms pressed by the Justice Department since Michael Brown’s shooting death by a police officer there last summer, according to a newspaper report.
The Ferguson City Council unanimously decided behind closed doors in March to hire Dan K. Webb of suburban Chicago at an hourly rate that Missouri Lawyers Weekly, a legal publication, said is nearly double Missouri’s highest attorney billing rate last year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. That tab doesn’t include the expenses and fees of any lawyers or paralegals in Webb’s firm who may work on the case.
Really? Over a thousand an hour? Even astronauts don’t make that kind of money.
When politicians can grant big wades of taxpayers money to people in dire “need” then the more poor people in need we have, the more money the politicians can hand out to their friends. If that isn’t a big incentive to keep everybody poor, I don’t know what is.
Race baiting is BIG business now.
Is it any wonder Jesse Jackson has visited Obama in the White House more than any other person?
Come on. Come on. COME on!
I don’t get it. Today it was revealed by the New York Times no less, that the Clinton’s had received big piles of money for basically selling U.S. uranium to Russia, giving RUSSIA control of the world uranium market, which Putin has always wanted.
That explains the red button.
The Clinton’s didn’t report that money, but somebody has finally gotten proof:
From the New York Times:
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, (Which Bill Clinton helped broker) the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clinton’s, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
Why is anyone surprised? For a long time I’ve been claiming, that although there is no proof that Presidents are receiving millions from foreign governments (and that would also include the Bushes) unless you have “proof” you can never accuse.
But when Bill Clinton did the very same thing, nobody but a few at Newsmax covered it.
Remember, Bill Clinton gave China the ability to be able to launch nukes at us, AND helped North Korea nuke up. He should have been impeached for that and put in a jail cell with Monica’s blue dress to hug.
From Year of the Rat:
In return, the Clinton-Gore team signed waivers allowing these companies to transfer our most sensitive satellite (i.e., missile launching) technology to Red China, obliterating the safety margin and technological edge we previously had on our sworn and potential enemies. (China then transferred sensitive U.S. technology to Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea.)
Nobody Thinks, that the Clintons have been selling U.S. assets for YEARS…and everybody just let them get by with it, because we do live in a oligarchy. And while us nobodies think the NSA is all about spying on us, think what dirt it gives to the powerful for the purpose of blackmail and extortion of their enemies?
Somebody very powerful doesn’t want Hillary to be President.
And the nobodies of the world…just sit back…and wonder.—-What are they selling off next? Air Force One?
Is that why they are making five more of them.?
Remember when we found out that Obama’s Secret Service had been partying with prostitutes in South America? Obama was…Hey, how did that happen, huh?
This morning, Congress put on a good show of being appalled that the head of the DEA, Michelle Leonhart, was not as appalled as they were on the report that DEA agents have been partying with prostitutes on the taxpayers dime down in Columbia….for it seems, many many years.
That report said 10 agents – an assistant regional director and nine special agents – had alleged sex parties on government-leased property and used taxpayer money to pay for the prostitutes. After investigation, seven of the agents admitted attending the parties and were suspended for between two and 10 days, the earlier report said.
What was even more surprising is that Michelle, the head of the DEA, cannot fire any of those guys. You see, she said, that was the responsibility of two guys below her. But..she DID send out a memo saying that hiring prostitutes was not a good thing, and please don’t do it. But she can’t fire anyone. A few of them got a ten-day suspension with pay. She couldn’t even tell Congress IF they should be fired.
It seems SHE has been giving money to the Colombian National police, who in turn bought prostitutes for the DEA agents. But wait! It gets better.
The drug cartels were giving the police money too, to pay for prostitutes. Somebody is double dipping, and no, no nobody knows how young these girls were.
The Congressmen then realized that you could be fired for saying something “sexist” in your office, but not for hiring prostitutes with taxpayer money and partying with drug cartels.
Good to know.
What should the Congress do? Well, it’s obvious to us, Michelle Leonhart should be fired immediately.
They can’t do that.
“In many of these cases, recommended punishments were reduced without explanation,” the report states. “The internal report does not discuss punishments for DEA supervisors who may have known about these allegations and failed to report them.”
She can’t be fired by anyone….unless it’s done by Obama. (All roads lead back to the same source, have you notice a pattern here?)
I don’t know about you. but I want my money back. If we are going to pay for prostitutes for the DEA, it might as well go to American prostitutes.
What kind of country is this?
NOTE: This was my afternoon post, and RIGHT after Hillary’s speech, when I was about to press the publish button, the server went down…not just mine, everybody’s. Unlike Hillary, I don’t have my own.
So…here it is, although late, remember—I started it before her speech…
Hillary is making us wait…the whole world must wait…to hear her say how she is turning over her emails to the world…but wait. She is very busy at the United Nations…she is THE most important woman in the world…so we must…WAIT.
In the meantime she made sure that everyone knew her theme song: I am woman, hear me roar! Or bark. Or demand. Or do whatever I want. Chelsea wrote a real fluff piece on Huffington Post about women’s issues, and so the black race card will be dropped and the women’s abuse card will be used in its place.
And Hillary launched her Presidency today…at the U.N. She just didn’t announce it, because she doesn’t have to.
Like I said, Hillary was making the world wait for her press conference—-we got camera shots of her listening to other women and nodding her head, as IF it was more important to listen to women, then be where she promised to be: At her staged press conference. …until Judge Napolitano came on FOX and said her crime was a felony. She instantly got up and starting walking…I wonder….who whispered in her little ear.
Okay…I’m waiting…I’m waiting…we are waiting…we are waiting…WAIT…BREAKING NEWS: it’s going to cost the taxpayers millions to just see her emails! HA!
Why didn’t the FBI just go into her house, grab that server, and tell her to stand down?
Update: Here she comes…looking like …Queen Mao in that grey Mao looking suit. What the heck is she wearing? Wait..she is trying desperately to control WHO gets to ask her questions…so what did she say? Let’s listen:
1. You know, I didn’t want to be bothered having to carry around two phones. (She could have taken a minute and set up two difference email accounts…on her ONE phone. Duh.) It was just so simple for me to have just one.
- Whoever I emailed in the government has a copy, so what’s your beef?
- I’m not as good as lying as Obama because I can’t look at the camera with my eyes wide open and lie. I am just going to stare at this guy’s shoes in front of me…and lie, and lie, and then pucker up with a big planted fake smile! Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
- I broke no laws, and you can see my emails that I’ve put out there—- having paid a number of people to clean them up for me and make me look really smart and you can see them.
- Hey, it was my husband’s private email server, so god KNOWS you will not be getting that server any time soon. And you CAN’T take a President’s server! It’s guarded night and day by the Secret Service! He just lets me use it.
- You can all %*%& off, I am Mao-Mao. Madame Mao-Mao. Don’t forget it. So I broke the law…what are YOU going to do about it?
And so the questions come: What emails did she already delete? Those discussions about Benghazi with the President? The money passed on to you by foreign leaders? Bill’s many girlfriends under the age of 12? What Obama was REALLY doing the night of Benghazi. Those emails are gone
And can she be more obnoxiously arrogant in her Madame Mao-Mao pants suit?
One more thing: Isn’t is a BIG coincidence that Jeb Bush’s first act when coming out as a contender for the Presidency was…He released all his emails. Nobody, NOBODY, had asked for them. We all went…HUH? What’s THAT all about?
Now we know. Jeb knew what was going to happen very soon…to Hillary.
Leave it to Sarah Palin to get the last word in, bless her heart:
“As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business,” Palin noted. “That’s unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency. Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether. ” That’s all she wrote: Guilty as charged.
I think Congress should exempt Snowden, bring him back home to America, and give him Hillary’s server.
After all..I’m SURE we paid for it.
ONE LAST NOTE: It’s now 10 pm. and Mark Levine on the radio just said it was her Mao suit. :) Great minds think alike.
This didn’t get much notice in the national news, but I found this VERY hard to believe…
Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich, who had recently launched a Republican campaign for governor, fatally shot himself in what police described as an apparent suicide, minutes after inviting reporters to his suburban St. Louis home for an interview.
Schweich’s death Thursday stunned many of Missouri’s top elected officials, who described him as a brilliant and devoted public servant with an unblemished record in office. Just 13 minutes before police received an emergency call from his home, Schweich spoke with The Associated Press about his plans to go public that afternoon with allegations that the head of the Missouri Republican Party had made anti-Semitic comments about him.
Think about it: He calls an interview and 13 minutes later he kills himself? Sure. Right. That’s how suicidal people do it. Especially the really intelligent ones.
Last year, during the mid-term elections, out of all the politicians that had their faces on TV, THIS man seemed the most promising. He was straight forward, almost what you would call a tea party man for the people. He was passionate, and a fighter. He promised to go after all the corruption in Missouri…
He was going to run for Governor, and he would have beat Nixon hands down.
It’s important for the democrats AND the Rino’s to keep their people in the leader positions, so there is a big sigh in the “Missouri will go our way” camp of upcoming Presidential elections.
Was this man….killed by orders from above?
Or was he deeply depressed?
How stupid are we?
Yes, and they found Lois Lerner’s emails, and ah…they can’t read them…again.
I was looking forward to voting for him.
And yes, I can say that It’s my Nobody’s Opinion that he was “taken” out, because when it comes to power, we have seen it all…there’s only so many coincidences that can happen in the space and time continuum, and the ledger on coincidences are way out of whack.
In the meantime, they have already I’m sure, working on the wife’s story.
We find out today that big left-wing money was behind the government taking over the internet.
Where are our republican representatives? WHERE!
The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013,” said the report, authored by Media Research Center’s Joseph Rossell, and provided to Secrets.
These left-wing groups not only impacted the public debate and funded top liberal think tanks from the Center for American Progress to Free Press. They also have direct ties to the White House and regulatory agencies. At least five individuals from these groups have ascended to key positions at the White House and FCC,” said the report which included funding details to pro-net neutrality advocates.
I thought America was dead when Obama was elected, but at least we could speak on the internet.
Could you ever have imagined that Congress would put up with this?
Everybody loses with this: especially our kids. We might be able to go quietly off into the sunset, but our children will become slaves to the state, and live in fear, of it.
This is…just too sad.
This…is for Hillary. As if it matters.
Watch the video.
It’s been awhile since I’ve pondered the demented world of forced political ignorance, so, let’s get started!
Today, we found out, that Obama’s deal with Iran, is a one-way ticket to a nuclear attack, by Iran. Obama has decided that Iran should have the means to make a nuclear bomb, just wait…until he’s out of office.
Or not. According to Krauthammer the deal is worse than Obama’s deals with Cuba OR Russia. But have no fear, if Iran tries to nuke anybody, the powerful King Obama will stop him…according to our equally maniacal Secretary of State, John Kerry:
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the U.S. can always “whack” Iran if it violates an accord being sought to prevent it from producing a nuclear weapon.
“Whack?” What is this, whack-a-mole strategy?
And speaking of whacking, Putin just sent a very visual whacking message to Obama, by putting his name on a nuclear missile which says, “This is for Obama.” So much for how everybody was going to love Obama…and Nobody Knows why ALL the news networks ignored this rather blatant threat by Putin.
Let’s hope Obama is not in the White House when Putin decides to use it.
And speaking of the White House…
Obama continued to rule with megalomaniacal madness…by ordering the FCC to take over the internet. Nobody Knows what’s going to happen with the internet, because Obama won’t let anybody see the big plans he has for it. But in his usual Machiavellian way, he will do it, because he has Congress preoccupied with trying to fund Homeland Security.
In other words, he is defunding it himself—those future Hispanic votes are just too important…just like he caused the LAST government shut down.
And speaking of Homeland Security..Nobody Knows who had the bright idea to putting up signs at Malls that say Gun FREE Zones? Is that going to work with hooded ISIS just waiting to pump a lot of bullets into helpless shoppers?
Can you say “MORONS!!”
And speaking of helpless shoppers…
Have you noticed the gas prices are slowly creeping up? Nobody Wonders if they just lowered the gas prices so that the masses of people would go out and buy Christmas presents. Once again today, The Federal Reserve Czar, Janet Yellen, said that she wasn’t going to raise rates for…oh just about forever, and BAM! The news put money in the pockets of all who live off dividends!
Which is pretty much the top 1 percent, and by the way, she doesn’t want to be audited.
And speaking of being audited, Hillary came out today promoting her campaign slogan that there is a serious war on women….even in her own office!
Who knew? Nobody Knows it, but Hillary is GOING to make it happen….just a few billion more from Saudi Arabia and she’s got it solved.
Last but not least— Nobody Knows how Eric Holder could drop the case against Trayvon Martin, but continue its suit against the Ferguson Police Department, who for SIX WHOLE MONTHS put up with having bricks, and rocks, and spit, and hated speech, thrown at them relentlessly and not one of them hit anyone back.
I’d like to see President Obama put up with that kind of abuse for six whole months.
I can tell you, he wouldn’t last even 10 seconds.
Next week, we will not doubt be wondering why Lady Gaga has gone conservative, singing properly, and coming out of her usual sexual rock star mode…
Is it all just about change?
Because that’s what happened. America has been watching reruns of Homer Simpson…not paying much attention to the wars overseas in Iraq, or the fact that our Congress doesn’t declare war anymore, and the fact that almost ALL of our Constitutional rights have been thrown out the proverbial dustbin window, with tons of political pundits exclamation of —“Constitution? What? That old thing?”
When Obama gave himself the right to kill, capture, or jail a citizen without due process, we all just turned the channel to “Whose winning the game?”
So much of that legal nonsense was kept off our TVs, along with the Iraq war. and then, there he was: The slickest marketing program ever run in a Presidential campaign all wrapped up in a big flashy white smile promising the WONDERS of all wonders: Change.
YES! IN JUST FIVE DAYS WE WILL FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA!
Who knew he was talking about making himself Napoleon?
Nobody checked to see if he was eligible. (Actually the Clinton’s knew, but shut up about it.)
A black President, who talked white. He came out of nowhere, and NOBODY asked where he got the money to buy the Presidency. Yes, I said buy.
Somebody was coaching the brilliant marketing of this strange man, who came off as the God of Gods. The perfect candidate. Next to Obama, both Hillary and Mitt Romney, couldn’t with all their money beat that big flashy smile
America LOVES a success story. And a good-looking man. And there he was.
But this time, around, neither Jeb NOR Hillary have that star power, and so, Hillary is not going to take any chances this time…because the internet has been active. She’s hired the BEST marketing people who money can buy. From Coke.
The people of America, have taken a while to wake up. After opening up their disappearing paychecks they went—- “What’s going on here?” And there it was…information, on all the rights they are supposed to have–hey, they don’t? We are being $&$^%#D they all said,— And being a nation of Homer Simpsons, we didn’t know that our whole country had been high jacked, and wow. this is a long introduction to bring me to the subject of today’s piece.
Who high jacked our country?
Let’s ask the judge: First, let me say I ADORE Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, a man who knows just about as much about our rights and laws as any man alive, STILL..
I have to agree with the socialist (okay…I hate them, I really do, but…cringe here) Bernie Sanders, AND even the Indian wacko Elizabeth Warren: Corporations are NOT people. How CAN they claim, that corporations are people? The judge disagrees.
“Take, for example, the publicly condemned holding in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission(2010) The Supreme Court invalidated a sixty-two year old statute prohibiting corporations and labor unions from utilizing general treasury funds to support or defeat a candidate in the sixty days preceding an election. The majority opinion, written by Justice Anthony M. Kennedy held that the First Amendment does not allow for the government to distinguish between speakers in order to determine who can voice tier support for political candidates. As Justice Kennedy wrote, the First Amendment “has it fullest and most urgent application to speech uttered during a campaign for political office. Moreover the fact that one speaker may have more wealth than another does not necessitate a ban on speech.” Bill Gates most likely has more money than you and I combined, but a ban on his speech simply on account of his wealth would be patently unconstitutional.
He goes on:
Opponents of the decision claim that will be corruption in the electoral process, as individuals opinions will be overshadowed by corporate prerogatives, and the holding will lead to a future in which the President is chosen by the Board of Directors of General Motors.
However while these dire predictions might be worth debating it is the corporation and unions constitution right to endorse the candidates of the choosing. After all our founders did not seek to found the most convenient or efficient form of government but the government which would best guarantee our fundamental liberties. Critics of Citizen Unite err in their failure to recognize this point.
Okay. I want to know, how letting unions, and billionaires, and in Bill and Hillary’s case, money from foreign governments— BEST guarantee the vast majority of citizens fundamental liberties? IF the corporations have the most money, then we become a ..government ruled by oligarchy, or just as bad, a democracy if you like.
IF we lived in a time when politicians could never be bought, that might make sense, but we don’t. And the Judge knows that.
For example, the teachers union have supported democrats forever. The people IN the union do not have a say what party the union leaders gives to. And look what it’s done to our kids.
Our schools are the WORST, and it matters not. The unions keep the leaders they want in power, and the money stays at the top.
Sure, Bill Gates should be allowed to give as much money of his personal wealth as he wants to, but when it comes to corporations and CEO’s who want to buy influence—–our political system is just about as corrupt as any.
I do not believe for one minute our Founders thought that rich men, “buying” an election was a fundamental right..especially if it hurts the vast majority. And look around: it has.
And how do we know that Obama isn’t doing what he is doing as a quid-pro-quo for the many governments around the world that HE received money from while campaigning? Does Joe Blow get a ride on Air Force One when Obama goes to China to make trade deals? No, he couldn’t afford it.
Saudi money funded Obama’s college education. And I don’t know about you, but when Obama leaned over to Medvedev to whisper that he’d be able to do more once he was elected, it was said just like a man who had been paid a huge sum of money, and was expected to deliver.
Is that why he lets Putin go unchecked?
So I have to admit, I’m a simple Nobody. but these huge corporations and banks were bailed out by a Presidents, who FORCED the American people to pay for their criminal mistakes. Mistakes, caused by Presidents making certain decision affecting millions of people but putting billions into the pockets of those who continue to steal from us all.
I would love the Judge to explain this to me, because…I just don’t get it. Judge? I’m all ears. Either your WRONG…or I’m just too stupid to get it.
Anybody that has had a kid in Little Leagues knows the scenario of cheating all too well. So, I’m sorry. The all black team that won the Little League highest honor last year, and they won it by stacking the deck with kids that were not suppose to be on that team…should lose those trophies.
Unfair you say? The adults did it? Mmmm………
According to my brother, the decision by the little league officials was right: You won the game boys…you have that honor, but you don’t get the title.
My brother has raised his son through the league, and he and I were both raised in a different America. The coaches played by the rules. But not today. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard my brother talk about five-year olds playing against kids twice their sizes by 100 pounds. Or teams with sixteen-year olds playing against 13-year olds. The kids try, but they can’t compete.
Guess what? The coaches have been doing this all over America. They go and get the best talent to make it to the top. Little league has become VERY competitive.
It’s a shame. The kids know they can’t beat the stacked team. And don’t be fooled, ALL the parents are aware of what’s going on too. The team that won the little league trophy was from Chicago.
That should tell you all you need to know.
But today, I did not hear ONE person anywhere say that the kids should forfeit the little league trophy.
The reason? It’s not the kids fault. Okay, It’s not, I agree. BUT…..
Let’s assume that the kids didn’t know that some of the kids on the team were NOT from the same place. That the coach had handpicked winners from around the area, and broke the rules.
The very fact is, rules were broken. It doesn’t matter if it’s not their fault, if everyone forgives the kids because their black or they’re just kids, than the message is:
You CAN cheat. Adults can cheat. If they get caught, nothing happens to them.
Jesse Jackson has called anyone a racist who thinks that rules were broken.
Please. How about playing another card…like the joker.
The team that lost, should receive that trophy, with an apology from the coach.
And then the kids on that team would learn a lesson about cheating. They would never forget it, and it would make better citizens of them all. They will see what happens when “leaders” who cheat hurt the people they are supposed to be leading, and they hurt the citizen…by cheating.
You either have rules, or you don’t.
IN America, cheating is not only allowed, it’s admired. Obama cheats every single day. He stacks the deck. And America has suffered dearly for it.
Anyway, let’s hope the officials at Little League stick to their decision.
(Thanks to my brother for his excellent take on it, and for making me see all sides.)
Every year, I go to my annual checkup appointment, and every year my doctor insists on looking at my blood. So I go to my local lab that has all black nurses in it. Ferguson has left a bitter scar between blacks and whites around here, but since I’ve always treated people the same, no matter what ‘color’ they are, I don’t stop going to the “black” places because I’m white. If they get upset, it’s their problem.
Unless of course it’s suicidal. I stay away from Ferguson, downtown St. Louis, and places where the, “Do not come here if you have white skin” …but, here in the city of burned-out gas stations, I find that any black person who has a job, is not out to “hate honky.” They are paying the bills, and seeing the injustices like all the white people.
People are people. Some are smart, some…not so much. It’s 50/50. Some of them are nice, some of them are..not. It’s the same in most every country I imagine. It is what it is.
But, I’m getting away from the point. The black nurse with the red hair, was taking my blood, and started talking right away to me:
“You have a co-payment of $70 dollars, want to pay now?”
“No..it started out as $10, went to $40, then $60, now it’s $70? ” That’s all she needed. This hard-working black lady had a long list of complaints, and it was all about the economy.
She didn’t understand this new medical stuff. She now has to work two jobs to make ends meet. And she knows so many people who can’t afford Obamacare. Everyone’s deductible has gone sky-high. She had two daughters, and one was going to nursing school, and the other one lived in Chicago and could barely afford her tiny apartment. Food was so expensive. She had to go to two or three grocery stores just to buy what she needed to find the deals.
We both shook our heads and agreed…the country is going to hell, and what the HELL happened? I knew, and SHE knew, that Obama had screwed us all.
But, we didn’t say it. We both were afraid to say it. Who knows where the camera’s are?
But we are nobodies, so it was refreshing this week, to see the CEO of Gallup, Jim Clifton, expressed concern that he might not make it home for DARING to report that Obama’s jobs numbers are just plain…misleading. In other words, it’s a scam.
There are WMD’s. (No there isn’t.)
You can keep your doctor. (No you can’t.)
Global warming is real. (No it’s not.)
The tea party is the enemy. (No they’re not.)
America is a racist nation. (No it’s not.)
I took sniper fire and was in a helicopter that went down. (No you weren’t.)
Al-Qaeda is defeated. (No it’s not.)
The video caused the riots in Benghazi. (No…it did not.)
I was born in Hawaii. (No you weren’t)
The country is stronger than its every been, and safer! (No..it’s not)
Global warming is more threatening than Isis. (No, it’s not.)
Islam is a peaceful religion. (No…it’s not.)
The NSA is not listening to your phone calls. (Yes, they are.)
I did NOT have sex, with that woman. (Yes you did.)
Okay, you get the drift. Our government lies to us daily.
Will it ever end?
If we ever needed a new blood transfusion. It’s now.
God help us.
