Regulation Nation and the Laws Congress NEVER Voted On

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

I’ve said it before and, I’ll say it again, and again…and AGAIN if necessary…

No one election…No ONE president can or will turn this country around, get it back to its rightful exceptionalism or return the Constitutional Republic to the vision entrusted us by the founders and framers.

It will not take as little as 2 years…4 years…8 years…a decade or even a generation.

The hill we climb is nothing short of Everest and getting to the summit is just the first step in what will be a monumental battle.

As we approach the 2014 midterms and then, the 2016 presidential elections, we MUST, as conservatives, identify and elect those willing and ABLE to reign in government and return the power of the Republic back to it’s proper place.

We the People.

This is the goal of the Tea Party and why, in fact, we are so feared by the liberals and socialists from the hallowed halls of Washington DC to the street corners of liberal Meccas from sea to shining sea.

The “fundamental transformation” of these United States is what they’re after.

They no longer want a Constitutional Republic.

THEY want socialism or it’s evil twin, communism.

Big…BIG government under control of a ruling class of self-proclaimed “elites” and a collective, raising the children of village idiots subservient to and answerable only to…the government.

GOVERNMENT, they believe, makes the ONLY good decisions and why, should the PEOPLE, of all people, be allowed to run GOVERNMENT rather then THEIR nirvana of the GOVERNMENT ruling the PEOPLE…

The Year That Was is The Year That Will Be

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Of all the stories of 2013, the IRS and NSA scandals…Benghazi…the 2nd term…Obamacare…Ed Snowden…

Feel free to add to the list as it was long indeed but, perhaps THE most important issue of 2013 was…

2014…

The midterm elections now just 11 short months away.

There are 3 primary, overriding issues from 2013 that will shape 2014 and they are…

Benghazi, Obamacare and…

I’ll get to that 3rd one later but first…

 Obamacare and what is yet to come.

In a few months, Obamacare will slam headlong into the employer provided health insurance market just as it did a few months ago, derailing the private insurance market and this time, in 2014, it will effect up to 170 million Americans…

Very few in a positive way.

Employers, PLANING FOR THE RECENTLY DELAYED UNTIL 2015 MANDATE, will begin planning and informing employees regarding the dumping of the plans they have been providing thus dumping millions upon millions of American workers into the Obamacare abyss resulting in higher and higher premiums and deductibles FOR those workers.

Other employers will be cutting their workforce, laying off employees and/or, cutting others to part-time hours.

And, those employers who had plans of expansion will put those plans on hold or, drop them altogether resulting in fewer new job creations thus slowing the economy.

Sticker shock will become reality and individuals will weigh the consequences of opting out completely to pay the end of the year fines with the knowledge that should something happen, an illness, an accident…

Camouflage and Christmas Lights

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

Every year, it seems, somebody asks me what I want for Christmas.

Over the years, the list has changed.

As a boy, my list included toys, maybe a new bike or a sled and maybe, just maybe, a puppy.

Such a list, I believe, is still the norm for kids today.

As I grew older, the list included more, substantial items.

A calculator, a new stereo, hiking boots and maybe, just maybe, a puppy.

By the time I was in college, my Christmas list had evolved to include a new camera lens, something for my first car…a 1977 Chevy Chevette,  money for spring break and maybe, just maybe…

The Formal Indictment of Barack Hussein Obama

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

As Conservatives and Tea Party faithful, we are constantly preaching adherence to that great document, beginning with the words, We the People…

Our Constitution is that document meant to limit the scope of government and to protect We the People FROM government.

We cite the Constitution, we hold it up as THE law of the land and we strongly disagree with those, whether within our own party of the opposition who seek to circumvent or ignore it.

Our Founders and Framers were far-sighted enough to know that such a document was necessary and arguably, for the exact reason with which we now face…A president who sees himself more as a King or a Dictator, a congress complacent to maintain status quo and the abuses of power against the people that go with those things.

But…

Today is the 4th of July.

Our Independence Day.

In past years, I have provided historical perspectives and behind the scenes essays regarding our starting point as a nation.

Well and fine however, this year, on Independence Day, we need something stronger. Something more pointed and something that rises to a call to action.

Today, we need…We REQUIRE…

Giving Obama’s SOTU the BIRD!

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

So…

Tuesday night, our Dictator delivered his Hate of the Union address.

The gallery was full of professional victims and…Ted Nugent.

Oh, I COULD regale you with fact checks and and counterpoints along with pointing out all the contradictions but, why bother?

It’s been done and it doesn’t honestly differ much from his previous Lying like a rug addresses.

Instead, I thought maybe a pictorial recounting of the way Patriots viewed the drooling and applause laden fiasco might serve as a better alternative and when it comes to giving the entire manifesto the bird…I say…Flip it THE most PATRIOTIC bird you can find!

SO…Needless to say, after the first 5 minutes, the Dictator’s nose had exceeded the limits of my 55 inch screen.

It’s a good thing this festival of bull wasn’t shown in 3D…

The Dictator’s State of Tyranny Address

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Tomorrow night, ON LINCOLN’S BIRTHDAY,the Dictator will deliver his State of Tyranny speech to his American subjects and to a joint session of the congress he fully intends to subvert.

We need to hear from the Great ENSLAVER on the birthday of the GREAT EMANCIPATOR like Lincoln needed to go to the theater.

There will be bowing and scraping, wild applause, cheering, head nodding and all other manner of ring and ass kissing throughout by the collective of elected socialists.

Among those in attendance will be a 4th grade girl from…

Newtown Connecticut.

No…She wasn’t even at the Sandy Hook School BUT…She did write a letter to Nancy Pelosi begging for government control of the people and the scrapping of the 2nd Amendment.

It was Rahm Emanuel who once, so famously said, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

“Never let a Crisis go to waste.”

The most important word, as it turns out, in that statement is…”a.”

“Never let A crisis go to waste.”

NOT…

“Never let ALL crisis go to waste.”

It’s important and, here’s why.

Weekend Edition: 2013 – Resolve Over Resolutions

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

While others busy themselves making predictions for the New Year and others with formulating resolutions, I have neither the time nor the patience for either.

Instead, I will relate MY RESOLVE for the New Year.

Before I begin, you should know that I mean these wholeheartedly and I am quite serious about each and every one of them.

So…2013…Where should I begin?

First…I intend to start an online petition which, should it gain 1 million signatures, would outlaw all online petitions.

Seriously…Name ONE online petition which has EVER gained the required number of signatures and has then gone on to accomplish ANYTHING. Name ONE. Go ahead…We’re all waiting…

I…And I suspect YOU…Are bombarded by such petitions DAILY and they are ALL posted as though the future of the world depends on YOU signing the thing. Well…Guess what?

IT DOESN’T and YOUR signature might make you FEEL good but, in reality…IT’S ALMOST AS MEANINGFUL AS AN EMAIL FROM A NIGERIAN PRINCE.

I’ll get the ball rolling and if YOU’LL just sign on…WE CAN STOP ONLINE PETITIONS FOR ALL TIME!!!!

Second…I am finished with listening to ANY “End of the World” prophecy garbage.

It’s not because I feel it is a waste of time or nonsense.

It’s because I simply can’t take any more of that sort of disappointment.

EVERY damned time SOMEBODY says the world is going to end…IT DOESN’T.
