256 Million Happy People

Posted: May 31, 2010 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

Flying on Obama’s private plane. Obama looked at Oprah, chuckled and said, ‘You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy.

Oprah shrugged her shoulders and replied, ‘I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy.

Michelle added, ‘That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a hundred people very happy.

Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pilot, “Such big-shots back there. I could throw all three of them out of the window and make 256 million people very happy.’

If you’re one of those 256 million, pass this on!

President Obama has suggested he, and the federal gubmint is effectively calling all the shots on the Gulf oil spill. But with more and more of those shots going astray like a badly aimed bullet, it’s really not hard to see that they ARE NOT in charge… and never have been.

Seriously? Obama has suggested — on more than one occasion — that the federal gubmint is calling all the shots in the Gulf at the big oil spill, and we can all rest assured that BP is acting ONLY under the direct supervision of his (Obama’s) administration.

Yeah, right!

If you’re one of his Great Unwashed drunk on his Kool-Aid, you might be under the impression that his is “personally engaged” and has been “on top of this since Day One.”

Right!

If that’s the case, how is it possible that their big, fancy “top kill” procedure was stopped for 16 hours while apparently you and almost everyone else… including your Coast Guard commandant didn’t know about it?

Mr. Obama, I know you’ll never read this, but maybe one of your lackeys can bring it to your attention…

You huffed and puffed like the Big Bad Wolf and came out with a bunch of strong statements, pledging unflagging support to “fix this situation,” when all you’re actually good at is tearing things up (and down). You say, “The federal government has been in charge.” “Make no mistake, BP is operating at our direction.”

Seriously? You really expect us to believe that sh*t?

Is it also at your direction that the public is being kept in the dark? Does being “in charge” mean allowing a corporation that has already stumbled into a calamity to treat the public’s interest and concern as if it is something they can get around to addressing whenever they feel like it?

I mean, it really doesn’t matter at this point. They (BP) probably know more about what to do than the rest of us anyway.

Presidential power is mostly by perception. And right now, you’re perceived as pretty flacid. When any president allows circumstances to make him look like a dope by the cadre of corporations (and a few banks), easily fooled or cowed, the country itself is undermined. How in the world could we EVER be proud of someone like you — someone who is so inept?

But, that shouldn’t come as any surprise. You’ve never run a company or had a business. You’re just a community organizer and your resume is going to remain thin… even when your term as Prez is finished.

It’s not enough to talk tough. Somehow, you just don’t carry the authority of Teddy Roosevelt or Harry Truman. Frankly, I don’t think you could carry a stick much bigger than your skinny legs.

Your response to this disaster is looking pathetic.

Maybe you should call some people who know how to deal with these situations. I know a few of them. They work for companies like Halliburton, Red Adair, Boots and Coots, Hess, Texaco, Exxon (as in Valdeze)… just to name a few.

Get down to the Gulf and stay there until you really are in charge…not just saying it. And while you’re there, get out on one of those clean up boats and give them a hand. You just might learn something.

Obama Serves 14-State Governors with Warnings of Arrest

Barack Hussein Obama had served 14-State Governors in the United States, National Security Letters (NSLs) warning that the Governor’s actions in attempting to form “State Defense Forces” needs to be halted “immediately” or they will face arrest for the crime of treason. The employment of NSLs was authorized by the Patriot Act introduced by George W. Bush. Contained within the section related to these letters, it is forbidden for anyone receiving a NSL warning to even acknowledge the existence of said communication.

Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished “State Defense Forces.” These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”

Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces. In essence, the Governors would have “de facto control” of the United States.

The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas. Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.” Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies and has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel. Governor Perry has declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas. Governor Perry further recently stated: “If Barack Obama’s Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”

Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina – to name a few. The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise. Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces. This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many “citizen soldiers” choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.

This is a fluid and still developing situation that warrants close attention.

Oversight Could Void Healthcare Reform Bill

Posted: May 24, 2010 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

An oversight by Democrats who wrote the healthcare reform legislation could result in the entire bill being declared unconstitutional, according to one analyst.

The problem: The bill lacks a “severability” clause, which stipulates that if any part of a law is stricken down as unconstitutional, the rest of the bill remains.

Greg Scandlen, a senior fellow at the Heartland Institute, said: “Apparently, there was no severability clause written into this law, which shows how amateurish the process was.

“Virtually every bill I’ve ever read includes a provision that if any part of the law is ruled unconstitutional, the rest of the law will remain intact. Not this one. That will likely mean that the entire law will be thrown out if a part of it is found to violate the Constitution.”

The provision in the bill most likely to be challenged on constitutional grounds is the mandate requiring Americans who aren’t previously covered by insurance to buy a plan, according to Investor’s Business Daily (IBD).

Another provision that could be challenged is the expansion of Medicaid that forces states to boost their spending on that program.

“The bill writers and lawmakers who voted for it without reading it were unprofessional,” an IBD editorial states.

“That was obvious in the haste in which the 2,400 pages of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act were passed and signed into law. The Democrats’ rush to get the bill through was a clear act of desperation that looked like the work of novices — or despots.

“It was hurried House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said that ‘we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.’ Evidently it had to pass for her party to find out what wasn’t in it, namely the shield of a severability clause.”

Hmmm… who would have thought…

The Prince of Fools

Posted: May 15, 2010 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the Prince of Fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.”

“The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

Ron Kind (D-WI-3) Wants The Government To Track How Much Your Daughter Weighs

Remember when conservatives told you that if you let the federal government into everybody’s healthcare, pretty soon it will stick its peering eyes and groping hands into our personal business?

It’s like the old Arab proverb of letting the camel get his nose into the tent. Once that happens, it won’t be long before the whole camel is in there with you… and sleeping in your bed.

Welcome to “pretty soon,” thanks to Wisconsin Democrat Ron Kind.

Kind has introduced a bill that will commandeer your health insurer to report to the federal government the body mass index (BMI) – i.e., height and weight – of your children every year from age 2 to 18.

I’ve got a different idea, and this comes from Col. John Braddock, USMC (Retired) living in the 83rd District of the Republic of Texas: Why don’t we propose a new bill to the dumbasses in Washington and call it the KMFA (Kiss My Fat Ass) bill of 2010?

Chrysler’s Railroad

Posted: May 9, 2010 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time. But not ALL of the people, ALL of the time” Sooner or later it will all come to light!

Chrysler’s Railroad

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon’s Watergate or Clinton ‘s Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed?

Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straits and federal government “graciously” offered to “buy the company” and keep them out of bankruptcy and “save jobs.”

Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration,

“Too big to fail,” same story with GM.

The feds organized their “Automotive Task Force” to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House’s official Car Czar – literally, that’s what his title is.

Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler ‘had made this list of dealerships’. Not true!

The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox New and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the “Automotive Task Force” headed by no one other than Mr. Steve Rattner.

Now the plot thickens.

Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed?

Actually there’s a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection.

Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government, 788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only “Democratic” dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary’s campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama’s campaign.

Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen happensto be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation- Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky “coincidence,” we’re certain.

Then comes another really wacky “coincidence.”

On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas, North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri. It seems that Bill Clinton’s former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson.

Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier.

These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed – not one!

While all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were!

Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone.

Isn’t that amazing?

Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story’s there, and it’s in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn’t being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Workers union!

Fiat owns 20%.

The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn’t want to run the auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America, it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don’t agree with his political agenda.

This is Nazi Germany stuff, and it’s happening right here, right now, in our back yard.

There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the “Automotive Task Force” has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done.

Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, “All that’s necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”

Car Czar No More

An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama’s Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom.

According to CBS News, Rattner left “to return to private life and spend time with his family.”

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, “I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future.”

By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York.

Uh-oh!

But, we’re certain that had nothing to do with his resignation.

And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he’s being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn’t have anything to with his resignation-that’s ridiculous! Like CBS said, this guy just wants to “spend more quality time with his family.”

Obama has 32 personally appointed “czars” who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority.

But hey, we’re sure they all have “unique skills,”……as Tim Geithner likes to say!

SOOOOO.HOWS THE CHANGE WORKING FOR YOU?

This goes beyond corruption in high places – to gross criminal actions on the part of our government! I hope you will spread this far and wide, and hopefully the taxpaying public will demand some of that transparency we were promised… followed by criminal prosecution of the perpetrators!

What a crooked government, we have!!!!! Vote ’em all out…November, 2010!
