Here We Go Again!

As I return to publishing observations here, the nation sees itself on the brink of yet another presidential campaign. November 2016 will be here before you know it!…

We have 3 Republicans, Sen. Rand Paul (KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) up against former Secretary of State and Democrat New York senator, Hillary Clinton.

The themes and memes are already underway in attempts to set the narrative. True to form, the Democrats have trotted out some of their worthless, tasteless voices to express insipid opinions on the Republican field. These quotes are definitely worth retaining as the campaigns move forward…

“Like most other major Republicans his (Rand Paul) views are outdated and way outside the mainstream.."

The former House majority leader, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) comments to Katie Couric on the candidacy of Marco Rubio… As you might recall, Pelosi proudly proclaimed Obamacare had to be passed into law before we could find out what was in it! To this day, she retains the crown as the most lame brain woman in Congress!

Things are just getting underway. That being said, I detect a hint of concern on the part of the Democrats. They’re realizing the lies they’ve told for decades are losing their political value..fast!

The Answer to Everything…

I think we all know the Obama presidency has NOT been what many Americans had hoped for. Whether they will admit that or not…well, that’s another question.

The administration has taken its tired responses from the Democrat playbook for years now. Of course, there is a predominate favorite that’s used. Tried and true, it’s utilized time and again, no matter what a weak, baseless defense it is….

The American people have real concerns and Barack Obama has been completely unable and unwilling to offer any sense of authority…any show of capability..any concerted effort beyond that which wins him political points…such as they are…

I thought I’d review some issues that have been quite egregious and offer the president a chance to respond…

Mr. President, our government continues to mount debt at a breakneck pace and there seems to be no willingness to tackle out of control spending. It’s very frightening for our nation…wouldn’t you agree?

obama-angry-1 2

 

Mr. President, the IRS targeting of select groups is something that’s very disturbing and unsettling to us..and we feel nothing is really being done about it…

obama-angry-1 2

Mr. President, Benghazi was obviously more than what your administration told us and we feel you’re trying to cover up what really happened….

 

obama-angry-1 2

 

Mr. President, Obamcare..excuse me, the affordable care act, is not what most Americans want or expected…

 

obama-angry-1 2

Mr. president, we don’t like what’s been going on with the NSA and the phone line tapping at the A.P…

obama-angry-1 2

 

Mr. President, we really don’t like the idea of the federal government become so involved in birth control access and all of that..it seems that is something the vast majority of individuals could decide and obtain for themselves..

obama-angry-1 2

 

Mr. President, illegal immigration is out of control and a major strain on our economy…despite the theory that those workers are needed for supposed jobs Americans won’t do…

 

obama-angry-1 2

Speaking of jobs, Mr. President…unemployment is still significant…especially with so many leaving the workforce and your administration has yet to focus on policies to encourage hiring….

 

obama-angry-1 2

Mr. President, your attempts to frame “wage inequality”, that you say hinders women in the workplace, is not really based upon all of the factors which would normally be included before your administration drafts a policy…

obama-angry-1 2

Well, we can see we’re really not getting anywhere with you….You should know, sir, that come the 2014 midterms, it’s looking like the Democrats are facing quite an obstacle in their arrogance and ineptitude, when it comes to trust and truth…

obama-angry-1 2

 

 

There you have it folks! Straight from the president himself… I think we ALL know where we stand, when it comes to what lies ahead with Barack Obama in the White House…

‘Are We There Yet?’

File photo of Obama and Biden in Wilmington

I know this is a foolish question, but do you ever feel as if your concerns about government, our national future, your children’s future, is all just a big joke to our Washington politicians? THEIR concerns are NOT yours. THEIR day to day is NOTHING like yours. Barack Obama and Joe Biden, two of THE MOST DISCONNECTED individuals to grace the executive branch of government, haven’t the slightest CLUE what worries most Americans. And the sad part is, they don’t seem to care.

So, I’m left to ask if we’re there yet…Have we reached the point where our collective disgust will prompt us to make serious changes, come the next election? Possibly. Likely? I doubt it.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA)

This latest ridiculous example of how out of touch those that purport to serve really are, is the Senate Democrats and their all night session discussing climate change with California’s loony Barbara Boxer leading the way! No matter where your beliefs fall on that issue, an all nighter on the matter is a glittering jewel of how these moronic, arrogant individuals avoid the more pressing, serious issues of the day. They don’t have the fortitude and they lack the personal integrity it takes to tackle the serious problems of the here and now. The national debt, unemployment, the IRS targeting, the NSA spying fiasco, our shrinking presence on the international stage, and the disparaging of our military. Americans struggle to pay bills and provide…if they’re fortunate enough to find work. Yet, the Senate Democrats would MUCH prefer to literally lend lip service to “CLIMATE CHANGE”! Other talking points, such as “immigration reform”, “gay marriage” “gender equality”…the list goes on and on… are not to be diminished in their own right. But, we face endangerments to our nation as a whole that threaten our existence. They don’t seem to matter to those that lack the guts to face the truth.

On top of all of that, let’s not forget we’re all a bunch of liars and ‘tea baggers’…..

Harry_Reid_NRSC_Ad_ObamaCare_Liars

Whatever works best for the camera..to this demographic..to that voting block…to this constituency. That’s what matters to Washington. Republican AND Democrat. Whatever they can tell you that will perpetuate the lie. That’s what sells..and guarantees their future in office.

So…it seems the joke’s on us. We send these idiots back to Washington time and time again. And the cycle continues. We’re on a fast track to nowhere. Eventually we will slam into the brick wall of reality. And that’s NOT going to be a pretty sight. The signs are all there. The question is whether we have the wisdom to heed the warnings. As things are now, I think we all know the answer to that question…

In the meantime, the joke continues in Washington…

The Latest in DUMBassery….

Now we all know there’s no shortage of idiocy in government, especially Washington. That being said, I thought I’d get us up to speed on some of the moronic comments espoused by those supposedly in the know…..

 

“What CBO said is many American workers would have freedom. Now that’s a good word. Freedom to do things that they couldn’t do. The single mom who’s raising three kids has to keep the job because of healthcare, can now spend some time raising those kids. That’s a family value.” - Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

The single mom who’s raising three kids has to keep the job because of healthcare, can now spend some time raising those kids. That’s a family value.” – Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

 

Sen. Schumer, a Congressional blow hard, par excellence, made is point on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, in response to the Congressional Budget Office’s assessment on the effects of Obamacare…

 

"We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout." He added: "If you look at international comparisons country by country, Americans work way more that the average of industrialized countries around the world." He said the report showing fewer work hours gives us the chance "to look at our work/life balance," which he described as "a great opportunity."

“We are going to have parents being able to come home, working reasonable hours. People are going to be able to retire. People might actually be able to cook dinner rather than have to order out and get some takeout.”… “If you look at international comparisons country by country, Americans work way more that the average of industrialized countries around the world.”

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) in response to the same CBO report…Yet another example of the Democrats trying DESPERATELY to rationalize in light of a bad situation. Who needs to work, anyway?…..

 

"What we are seeing is that people are leaving their jobs because they are no longer job locked...They are following their aspirations to be a writer; to be self-employed; to start business.  This is the entrepreneurial piece.  So it's not going to cost jobs.  Its going to shift how people make a living and reach their aspirations."

Here we go again…”queen of lunacy”, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) offers her two cents worth….

 

“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work,” the Texas congresswoman said. “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength,” Jackson said Jan. 29 at a press conference where she and fellow Democrats launched the Full Employment Caucus. “In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment,”

“We will be answering the call of all of America because people need work and we’re not doing right by them by creating work..”… “I believe this caucus will put us on the right path and we’ll give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength…”
“In fact, I think that should be our number one agenda. Let’s write up these executive orders — draft them, of course — and ask the president to stand with us on full employment..”

 

The FRIGHTFULLY MORONIC Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), on her solution to the legislative agenda..just write executive orders for Barack Obama…A scary thought, if there ever was one!….

 

“We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency. People can do what they want,” Reid told reporters outside of a close policy luncheon. “And what they’re saying here is — and the fact checkers have already done this — the Republicans talk about losing millions of jobs simply isn’t true. It allows people to get out of a job they’re locked into, because of — they have healthcare in their job.”

“We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency.

It allows people to get out of a job they’re locked into, because of — they have healthcare in their job.”

This from the infirm mind of Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), the majority leader in the Senate. It’s just the latest example of what a DISASTER and how lacking in leadership this shameless, worthless man has been…

 

These are but a few examples of the moronic thought by individuals that shape policy in Washington. These idiots, and others like them, are in CHARGE! That fact alone should be more than enough to shake millions of American voters to their collective senses!

This can’t continue. It has to come to a head. Barack Obama has been a utter and shameless DISASTER since day one as president. Week after week, we see example after example. From domestic policy to international relations, the man lacks any coherent approach to problem solving. His practice of reactionary programs, worthless proposals, and reckless spending has left this nation frustrated and divided. The question remains, do we have the courage to actually DO SOMETHING about it in the 2014 mid-terms and the presidential election of 2016?…

 

Losing Our Grip!

Well, “we”…or many of us…are not losing our grasp on reality. The media and the powers that be seem to have COMPLETELY lost theirs!….

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN? 36 FACTS THAT PROVE ALMOST EVERYTHING IS STILL RUNNING

All of this whining and crying about a “government shutdown” is a total joke.  You see, there really is very little reason why this “government shutdown” cannot continue indefinitely because almost everything is still running.  63 percent of all federal workers are still working, and 85 percent of all government activities are still being funded during this “shutdown”.  Yes, the Obama administration has been making a big show of taking down government websites and blocking off the World War II Memorial, but overall business in Washington D.C. is being conducted pretty much as usual.  It turns out that the definition of “essential personnel” has expanded so much over the years that almost everyone is considered “essential” at this point.  In fact, this shutdown is such a non-event that even referring to it as a “partial government shutdown” would really be overstating what is actually happening.  The following are 36 facts which prove that almost everything is still running during this government shutdown…

#1 According to U.S. Senator Rand Paul, 85 percent of all government activities are actually being funded during this “government shutdown”.

#2 Approximately 1,350,000 “essential” federal employees will continue to work during this “government shutdown”.

#3 Overall, 63 percent of the federal workforce will continue to work during this “government shutdown”.

#4 The U.S. Postal Service will continue to deliver our mail .

#5 U.S. military personnel will remain on duty and will continue to get paid.

#6 Social Security recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#7 Medicare recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#8 Medicaid recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#9 Food stamp recipients will continue to get their benefits .

#10 Those on unemployment will continue to get their benefits .

#11 Federal retirees will continue to get their pensions .

#12 The federal school lunch program has enough money to go through at least the end of this month.

#13 Public schools all over the country will continue to stay open .

#14 Almost all federal law enforcement officials will continue working .

#15 The Federal Reserve will remain “completely functional “.

#16 The Supreme Court will continue to operate normally and federal courts have enough money to keep going for at least two weeks .

#17 TSA employees will continue to molest travelers at our airports.

#18 Air traffic controllers will continue to monitor traffic at our airports.

#19 Hopelessly outmanned border patrol agents will continue to try to stem the tide of illegal immigration.

#20 Visas and passports will continue to be issued by the State Department.

#21 The Veterans Administration will continue to offer substandard medical services , and it will be able to continue processing benefit payments at least for now .

#22 The Obama administration apparently has plenty of money to spend on closing open-air memorials that are usually open to the public 24 hours a day.

#23 The Department of Defense announced the awarding of 94 new contractsworth a combined total of more than 5 billion dollars on September 30th – the day right before the “government shutdown”.

#24 The “government shutdown” has not prevented the new two billion dollar NSA spy center from opening up.

#25 Federal prisons will continue to operate normally .

#26 Amtrak trains will continue to run .

#27 The Patent and Trademark Office will be open .

#28 The Consumer Product Safety Commission will continue to issue product recalls if the products “create an immediate threat to the safety of human life “.

#29 The National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center will continue to track weather patterns .

#30 If the federal government needs to respond to a natural disaster, this “shutdown” will not affect that .

#31 NASA will continue to support the Mars Rover and the two American astronauts up on the International Space Station.

#32 All city employees of the D.C. government have been deemed “essential”and will continue to go to work.

#33 Even though the Obamacare exchanges are not working properly , people will still be able to access them.

#34 The IRS will continue to collect taxes , but it will be suspending punitive audits of conservative organizations.

#35 Barack Obama will continue to get paid for the full duration of this “shutdown”.

#36 The U.S. Congress will continue to get paid for the full duration of this “shutdown”.

Of course not everything is operating normally during this government shutdown.  Government parks are closed.  The EPA and the Department of Energy have almost totally closed up shop.  But overall, most Americans are not going to notice much of a difference.

And perhaps now is a good time for the American people to evaluate whether or not they actually need a gigantic federal government that wastes enormous mountains of our money.

For example, our federal government recently spent $98,670 to construct a single outhouse in Alaska.

 

government-waste

 

That is more than a lot of Americans pay for their entire houses.

For many more examples like this, please see my previous article entitled “The Waste List: 66 Crazy Ways That The U.S. Government Is Wasting Your Hard-Earned Money “.

It is about time that Washington D.C. started experiencing some of the “belt-tightening” that the rest of the country has been going through.  For far too long, the fatcats in D.C. have been living in an alternate reality where they have been able to live the high life at our expense .  A recent blog post by Daniel Greenfielddiscussed how this shutdown is going to affect the alternate reality that the Obamas have been living in…

The government shutdown has forced Obama to make do with only a quarter of his 1,701 person staff. That would leave 436 “vital” employees. The 90 people who look after his living quarters would be slashed to 15 to “provide minimum maintenance and support”.

 

Obamas-1-percent-lifestyle-300x166

Buckingham Palace, which is twelve times the size of the White House and has its own clockmaker, only has an 800 person staff. King Harald V of Norway and his court make do with 152 staffers. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden gets by with 203.

On Twitter, Michelle Obama announced that she is unable to Tweet on her own without the aid of all of her sixteen assistants; many of whom take home six figure salaries. There are more directors, associate directors and deputy associate directors on Michelle Obama’s staff than there were in George Washington’s entire administration.

Presidents have fought wars and made peace, explored and annexed vast territories and built a nation out of a handful of colonies with fewer senior staffers than are needed to handle Michelle Obama’s Twitter account.

 

flickr-2994035178-image-640x360

Oh the humanity!  Will Michelle Obama ever tweet again?  And how will the White House continue to function without at least one projectionist on duty at the White House 24 hours a day?

No wonder Barack Obama is so upset about this shutdown.

In the end, this shutdown could turn out to be very good for America.  We have a government that is wildly out of control and that desperately needs to be reigned in.

During the Obama administration, federal debt held by the public has risen by 90 percent , and overall federal government spending has risen by a whopping317 percent since 1990.

 

javadi20130810065420170

So is it really a bad thing that the federal government has been forced to cut back for a little while?

Our politicians can whine and cry all they want.  They won’t be getting any sympathy from me.
