The Cain Train Derailed

Herman Cain will bow out of the 2012 presidential campaign.

That is my opinion and one that I believe will, sooner rather than later, become a reality.

Right now, Cain is engaged in an “Assessment” of his campaign following more allegations of inappropriate behavior. This time, it’s not sexual harassment…This time, it’s an alleged affair that supposedly lasted some 13 years.

My opinion will, no doubt, inflame Cain’s most ardent followers but it’s time to face reality.

At worst, Cain had a 13 year affair with Ginger White and while that is yet to be proven, at least as far as THIS allegation, that would be the worst case scenario. If it proves to be true…IF it proves to be true, it would add an air of validity to other allegations and would be something from which Cain could not resurrect himself.

UC Davis Pepper Spraying…The Unintended Truth

Sometimes, video evidence isn’t what it seems to be. Sometimes, it can be very misleading if all you see is an excerpt, taken out of context, from the whole of the event. That now appears to be exactly the case with a widely circulated video clip from last week.

I am sure most people, by now, have seen the clip of police pepper spraying OWS morons at U.C. Davis. There they were, looking all peaceful, sitting on the ground, arms linked when along came the big bad police, those establishment, law enforcement officers who, out of the blue and for no reason at all, let loose with cans of pepper spray.

Oh the humanity, the horror. Doing such a thing to those who were simply exercising their 1st amendment right to gather, why, it’s just unthinkable.

UC Davis Chancellor, Linda Katehi, has, with tears in her eyes, apologized to students for the actions of the police.

Two officers and the campus police chief have been placed on leave.

UC President Mark Yudof has denounced the police for the pepper spraying of those students.

Students at UC Davis are demanding the Chancellor resign and they want the cops fired.

It’s a mess at UC Davis and all because of this piece of irrefutable video evidence.

That video clip CLEARLY show police pepper spraying those students FOR NO GOOD REASON WHATSOEVER!

Whoa…Hang on there…Not so fast.

Friday Fume

This week, through all the cooking and baking, through the plans made to spend a wonderful day with our family and friends and through aroma of turkey, potatoes, stuffing and pies…

I was unable to escape the moronic actions of liberals which have…

Right off, I see two problems with this.

Happy Thanksgiving

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.


Given under my hand, at the city of New York,

the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789

This was the first, the very first Thanksgiving proclamation of Thanksgiving issued by a United States President and the words are unlike any one might expect to hear from an elected official today.

Liberals Need to KISS OFF

A serious incident took place yesterday on the playground of a Lee County Florida school and not one but two Sheriff’s Deputies were called by the school’s administrators.

What happened was apparently so shocking and disturbing to the school’s administrators that they first called the Florida Department of Children and Families which suggested that law enforcement be called instead.

The SHOCK…the horror of it all…Let us pray…except, not on school grounds.

Here’s how it all went down.

Two 12 year old girls were standing and…gasp…talking…Apparently, as girls of that, or nearly any age will, about which one liked a certain 12 year old boy more.

After a short time trading, “I like him more…” “No…I like him more…” one of the two suspects walked over to where the victim was standing and that’s when it happened.

Let Liberals Pull the “Trigger”

And now we know the truth. John Kerry, on Fox News this morning, admitted that the only reason there’s no deal from the “Super Committee” is because of the Bush Tax cuts.

In reality, those tax cuts could and should be referred to as the Bush/Obama tax cuts as it was Obama who renewed them.

Republicans on the committee has steadfastly refused to make the Bush/Obama tax cuts a part of the 1.2 trillion dollars in deficit cuts and for good reason. They promised not to.

Liberals on that committee want nothing more than to hike taxes. Liberals feel the wealthiest 1 or 2 percent of Americans must be soaked for more taxes. Oh, never mind that those are the same people who already pay 40% of all taxes…To liberals, it’s not enough.

In the liberal mindset, success MUST be punished.

Let’s not forget that this commission, the “Super Committee” was to have been non partisan and the solutions they were convened to seek, non partisan as well.

Let’s not forget also that doing away with the Bush tax cuts was a major plank in Obama’s 2008 campaign.

Therefore, one is left no alternative but to conclude that eliminating what is now, the Bush/Obama tax cuts, via the “Super Committee” is 100% partisan.

Money isn’t what you think it is….

First off, I am not dead. I didn’t just do drive-by postings to the National Patriot. I have been busy here at my base. We recently had an exercise at my base, and I have been busy with getting other military-related tasks complete. Also, I am taking a class that I think I will rather enjoy…US History. At any rate…here I go:

What is money? Most would either say or have you believe it is the cash in your pocket or the silver in your safe. I am here to tell you it is neither. And when I tell you what money really is, you will be amazed. First thing I need to tell you is this: Please read all the way through with an open mind. Second thing I want to tell you is: This is really simple once you read it with an open mind.

You may be surprised to know that money isn’t what you may think it is. It isn’t dollars, silver or gold. It isn’t rupee’s, rubles or pesos. So, instead of classifying all of that as “money”, let’s call them all by their one proper name: currency. Currency is what allows you to buy whatever it is you want. Currency is property, something you own. You take that property and trade it for other property, or amass it in order to purchase more expensive pieces of property later on. You can even lend that property to someone else on the condition they repay you that property plus a little extra. But just how did you come to own the currency in the first place?

Another Liberal Mecca, Another Disaster

Yesterday, in the Friday Fume, I went off on the SEIU for forcing unionization on the Michigan parents of 2 children in their 30’s who deal with cerebral palsy. The SEIU is taking union dues from their children’s Medicaid checks and calling those parents “Home Care Givers” and forcing them into the union. It’s thuggery at best and downright theft at worst.

It’s shameful any way you care to look at it.

This apparently isn’t the only problem stemming from greed raising its ugly head in Michigan – and guess what folks, it ain’t the greedy Republicans at the bottom of the Michigan barrel.

Let’s take a hard look at Wayne County, Michigan, shall we.

In Wayne County, Democratic county executive, Bob Ficano has been spending money like a drunken navy. Lots of money. Continue reading

Cell phones for “free,” well not really !

Currently there are mailings going to people from Assurance Wireless. Headline from this mailing offers a free cell phone to the addressee at no cost to the addressee. The cost is covered by the Universal Service Fund, FCC. Well actually by the citizens who own cell phones, use cable, or even the internet. Imagine that! You work and pay for your cell phone, or your cable and internet, all the while you are supporting someone else, so they can have a cell phone.

Take a close look at your cable bill and your phone bill. I am being billed over 2 dollars a month for this Universal Service Fund. That adds up to a lot of money when you consider how many citizens have cable and cell phone or even house phone. So the FCC receives this money monthly. Who is in charge of the money? Where is it spent? Since the FCC receives this money, why then must they also receive tax dollars from the budget? Questions I intend to look into.

Regulation costs are passed onto the consumer!
