Another message for our children...THINK! What is he trying to do?

If you're an American college student reading this posting, all I ask is that you follow the logic of my statements, and think about what you are seeing happen to YOUR country.
Set aside for the moment, the promises you've heard. (Like when a boy whispers he loves you as he's slipping your clothes off!) Think about what you've seen happen in the last 8 months. Does all of it seem logical? Can 10% of the population really support the rest of the population for the rest of their lives? And what happens when you've taken away the wealth from "the wealthy?" Who's going to want to work - if you don't get to keep what you've worked for?

All I ask is that you think about this - and pass it along.

Think about it.

* * * * * * * * * *
I'm just stunned....
The last eight months has simply stunned me.
I just can't believe that an American President could ever be this reckless....(I'm less surprised that the American Press would NOT report this recklessness - and at times even champions it! But that doesn't surprise me so much. They no longer report the news, they report what they want to be true.)
Nor can I believe that there are still Americans, who do not see the destructiveness and peril our President has placed our country in!

Make no mistake children - this dismantling of the structure of our Republic is NOT a game!

* This is not something that after burning it down, you can just return to your classrooms and everything will be alright!

* This is not some campus rally that you and your boy/girl friend can go to, deride the United States for an hour or two, burn a couple of flags, return to your dorm room and fuck a little, and everything will be OK!

* This is not the "flower power" hippie movement of the 60's your Mom & Dad told you about! You can't just "tune in, turn on and drop out" as Timothy Leary preached back then.

* You can't just turn this stuff off once you figure out your freedoms are gone and it ain't so great!

* Wasn't it Obama who taught you, "Words matter!" Well guess what...so do actions! And his actions are causing CONSEQUENCES!

* Regardless of what your college professors are telling you - you can't just "try" socialism for a while! And if these same Professors would be honest with you, socialism is NOT the UTOPIAN "masterpiece" they portray it to be. (Please don't believe them, but hey - don't believe me either - hell I'm 58 - just investigate Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, China, North Korea, and even the Social Democracies that have failed in the past... like my home country of Sweden).

There's a reason socialism and collectivism has failed every time it's been tried!!! Figure it out, you're smart!

Unfortunately for ALL OF US, the actions taken by the President of the United States during the last 8 months have already had monumental negative effects on our society.

How many of your parents, or neighbors parents have lost their jobs? Do any of you have any friends that couldn't return to school this fall semester because they couldn't afford it? I thought Obama said all these jobs were going to be created?

Well, just answer yourself this question, how do you gain jobs when your actions have closed down hundreds of banks, mortgage companies, and other financial institutions; caused builders to stop building homes and apartments; and closed down entire auto corporations and their dealerships? Does it seem logical that you'd gain jobs by doing these things?

And didn't The President promise us that if he got to spend his "Stimulus Bill" ($787 Billion dollars) unemployment would be held to below 8%?
So why is unemployment now at 9.5%?? And if you're gaining all these jobs & spending all this "stimulus" shouldn't unemployment be going down????

You could easily ask, "Where's the plan Stan?" The Beatles sang a song that said, "You say you want a revolution well ya know, we'd all like to see your plan." That's ALWAYS been the problem with "revolutionaries" like socialists, Marxists, Leninists, Communists, and all other "progressives" down through the decades...they NEVER, EVER have an actual plan! Oh they speak about "changing society and sharing with everyone"...which all sounds great! But they can never figure out how to do it! And Obama's no different! He's got all these great "cosmic" ideas...but the guy has never done anything! The most he's ever been able to do in Chicago is work at ways to take from one group and give it to another. That's NOT progress - that's tearing down what's existing and establishing another entitlement group!

* * * * * * * * * *

One of President Obama's early and influential mentors was a community organizer in Chicago named Saul Alinsky. Alinsky dedicated his book "Rules for Radicals" to Lucifer. No shit, he dedicated his book to the Devil!!! Alinsky called Lucifer, "...the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment, and did it so effectively he at least won his own kingdom!" (Hard to argue with that logic, huh? Hell's gotta be some kind of paradise right!)

But Alinsky's logic models much of the way President Obama ran his campaign and has run the first 8 months of his Presidency. Alinsky said, "Radicals must have a degree of control over the flow of events." Whoa!, President Obama certainly learned this tactic.

He's controlled the media perfectly. He's moved so quickly and changed gears and directions so adroitly, that not even his own party can keep up with him, let alone the American people! Whenever someone tries to pin him down on an issue or concern, he simply moves to a different issue. He never answers questions or criticisms specifically - he merely holds another press conference changing the verbiage and thrust of his desires.

Think about this....in eight months have you heard a DEFINITIVE stance on any of his major campaign promises? Obama talks obliquely, because this allows him to always claim he was misunderstood. He knows that if he's too specific, he can get pinned down, and people will see through his charade. Then his bubble will burst. Oh yeah, President Obama is quite the expert dancer!

Alinsky also said, "The organizer's job is to get people pregnant with hope and a desire for change." Well, could there ever be a better description of Obama's entire candidacy, his campaign, or the first 8 months of his administration? My God - can you remember people on the campaign trail saying, "of course I'm going to vote for Obama! He's going to pay off my college loans, my car payment and my mortgage!" Or when asked why they were voting for Obama they actually said, "Well he's for hope and change." Man did he learn that lesson well!

Finally, the President has done nothing to dispel the belief that he will still do all these things! He continues to hold press conferences and "town halls" where he promises he's going to spread around the wealth of the "haves" to those that "have not." (Another "textbook" Alinsky tactic I might add. The creation of a struggle between the "haves" and the "have nots.")


But you never hear him say how he's going to accomplish his goal! When he's pushed for specifics, he says he's going to have his "expert" give you the details shortly! He maintains his aura of "savior"... so he never has to deliver on any of his promises!

And because the Press simply slobbers over themselves trying to outdo one-another telling you what a wonderful savior Obama is .... he can keep waltzing through his Presidency saying, "Believe in me. Remember...hope & change. That's me. Just remember...hope & change!"

One of my hero's Ben Franklin said a long time ago, "When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic!" With Obama, the masses think they have found a way to get something for nothing. They have found their golden goose. They have found the man who is going to "show them the money!" Obama has become Oprah giving away cars!

Unfortunately, you can't eat hope, and change ain't going to pay all these bills! And pretty soon the people are going to find out he can't make good on his promises. Oh, is there going to be hell to pay that day! From both sides.

The "Good" Senator.

(originally mailed Sunday, August 30th. 2009)

I would like to add my condolences to the Kennedy family as they mourn the passing of one of their own.

For anyone under the age of 40, I'm certain that none of you ever knew or heard the actual "history" of Senator Ted Kennedy. I am certain none of your schools taught you the full truth about the man's history - or answered any questions about the incidents I'm going to describe. So after you read this posting, do a little research on your own, and then answer one simple question for yourselves.....
What would have happened to your mom or dad, your brothers and sisters, or yourself, had you been involved in any of the incidents I'm about to tell you?
In honesty, growing up in the 50's & 60's, learning about these incidents as they happened, and seeing how Ted Kennedy was treated, was the main reason I came to detest the Kennedy name & legacy so vehemently. As time has passed, there have been examples of other Kennedy family members, who have garnered "special treatment" only because their last name was Kennedy. It continues today - all you have to do is minimal "homework" to see the disparate treatment between how you would be treated and how Kennedy's ARE treated.

Suffice it to say that politically I did not agree with one thing Ted Kennedy stood for, or believed in. His politics were of ultra-liberalism, big government taxation and spending, and social welfare programs designed to enslave recipients for the sole purpose of garnering votes. (Perhaps this was his way to assuage some guilt he may have felt - but I doubt it!)

Ted Kennedy simply lived his life believing that there were "rules for Kennedy's" and "rules for everyone else."

Perhaps it wasn't entirely his fault - his father, Ambassador Joseph Kennedy Sr. certainly instilled that belief early on in his son's life. When Ted was caught cheating twice while at Harvard - once for cheating on a test himself, and once by having another student take his exam for him - the other student was immediately expelled, never to return. Teddy was quietly re-admitted after serving two year in the Army. But while 90% of all enlisted Army personnel and certainly most "privates" saw active duty in the bloody Korean war zone, Ted's daddy made sure his son served in that "hotbed of combat"...Paris, France!

While attending law school at the University of Virginia - Ted was sighted for reckless driving four times - yet never had his license revoked or suspended. In 1961, two years after passing the Massachusetts bar exam he was appointed Assistant to the District Attorney of Suffolk County, Mass. In 1962 as a 30 year old, he was elected to "the Kennedy seat" in the U.S. Senate, when his brother John gave up the seat to run for the Presidency. Ted has held and been re-elected to that seat ever since!

In July 1969, while attending a "reunion party" of his brother Robert's campaign workers on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts, Ted (now 37), "borrowed" his chauffeur's keys "to offer a ride home" to Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28 year old campaign worker . Sometime between 11:15 PM and 1 AM the Oldsmobile registered to Kennedy drove off a bridge and landed up-side-down in a tidal pool. Kennedy, who admitted to driving the vehicle at the time of the accident, escaped the fully submerged vehicle and looked around for Ms. Kopechne. When she didn't answer his calls, he says he dove repeatedly to the vehicle but was unable to assist her, or even determine whether she was still in the vehicle.

Instead of calling for help at one

of four homes along the road to the bridge - (at least one of which was within 150 yards of the bridge, and according to the inquest had left their exterior lights on ), Ted walked back to the party and returned with two friends. They again dove on the vehicle but were unable to determine the state of Ms. Kopechne. Kennedy - claiming he was in shock and distraught - then says he swam across Edgartown channel and went back to his hotel room. He did not report the accident to authorities until the following morning. In fact, two fisherman reported the overturned car to the owners of the nearest house to the bridge and the inhabitants of the house called the police at 8:20 AM. A diver was immediately sent down and discovered Ms. Kopechne's body at 8:45AM. When the car was removed from the channel it was discovered that Ms. Kopechne had scratched at the upholstered floor above her head before she perished. Can you simply imagine the terror and loneliness that poor woman felt before she drowned in Teddy's overturned car?

Ms. Kopechne's body was rushed out of Massachusetts and returned to her family. No autopsy was conducted. Ted Kennedy was never given a sobriety test. Seven days later at a hearing, Kennedy was allowed to plead guilty to "leaving the scene of an accident." He received a two month suspended sentence!! Kopechne's family received a small payout from the Kennedy's insurance policy, and never sued. There was later an effort to have her body exhumed and autopsied, but her family successfully fought against this in court, and Kennedy's family paid their attorney's bills.

This week as Senator Kennedy was remembered as someone who "never practiced petty politics" I nearly gagged!

How convenient it is for Liberals and the Press to forget that during the summer of 1987 while Judge Robert Bork was being considered for a position as a Supreme Court Justice, Ted Kennedy took to the Senate floor and delivered a tirade against the Judge - fashioned and calculated not only to end the Judge's nomination to the Supreme Court, but in large part to end the Judge's entire judicial career! Kennedy defamed Judge Bork by saying, "

Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit down at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists would be censored at the whim of government, and the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is often the only protector of the individual rights that are the heart of democracy." NONE OF WHICH WAS TRUE! But of course Ted got away with those lies because of Kennedy & senatorial privilege. And this was nothing new, Kennedy had maligned other Senators and opponents his career - whenever his cause was threatened, Kennedy reverted to character assassination & slander.

Sort of makes you wonder upon hearing other Senator's call Ted the "Lion of the Senate," whether that word is better spelled "Lyin'" instead?

In later years "the good Senator" was implicated in the rape case of his nephew in Palm Beach Florida. But don't believe me...Look up the William Kennedy Smith rape case.

So, young readers it is now up to you to decide whether Ted Kennedy should garner all the flag waving and tears you've seen in recent days? Make sure your research is complete and then decide. Perhaps for you, the fact that he is gone and part of an earlier generation will be enough for you to close his page of history.

But be careful, because it won't be that easy. In the coming week you are going to hear more Senators calling for Ted Kennedy's name to be used as part of the new government healthcare bill President Obama is trying to push through Congress! Wonderful! Another banner day for American myopia! The name of a man who caused the death of an innocent young woman is going to be memorialized on a bill that could alter this countries healthcare forever!!! My God America what are you doing????

Personally, I pray that Senator Kennedy - on the last day of his life - felt a little of the terror, pain and loneliness that Mary Jo Kopechne felt all those years ago as her life slipped away in that cold dark water off Chappaquiddick Island.

Congressional Benefit Plans - one way to force a change!

(originally mailed August 25th. 2009)

The more I think about something I said last week - the more I like it!
As a matter of fact I think it's one of the better ideas I've ever had! (Not conceit...well maybe just a little...but actually a pretty damn good idea!)

I think that all Americans should band together and gather petitions in every state and "hamlet" throughout this wonderful country! These petitions will have one purpose alone......

"We the undersigned do hereby DEMAND that all members of the United States Congress and their family members, as well as all members of the President's family, and all his appointees (including Cabinet members & special Czars) and their family members, be immediately transferred into the health care plans available to active duty military personnel and their families. In addition, NO ONE in the groups mentioned above will be allowed to "opt out" and purchase private insurance."
Of course there's a reason why healthcare benefits for Americans has always been such a hard problem to unravel....Congress and the President, (in fact all members of the Federal bureaucracy) don't have the same healthcare problems that most of us American citizens have!

They have quietly created for themselves and their families a separate and distinct "class" of citizenry. They are the "self promoted aristocracy" in this country. They make the rules for everyone else - but set themselves apart! Talk about absolute despotism and elitism - this is it!

Congress selects its benefits from a "menu" of more than 18 plans. From what I've been able to glean via the internet - Senators and Congressmen once elected, can basically stop worrying about any healthcare cost issues, for them and their families, for the rest of their lives!

And just to make you all a bit more angry...their pensions and retirement benefits are even more lucrative!

Why do you think that they fight so hard to get re-elected? The real "fleecing" of America is being done by the "grinning imbeciles" on Capitol Hill!!! (Think especially here of Pelosi, Schumer, Kerry, Frank & Dodd. Have you ever before seen five bigger grinning mental defectives in your entire life?? I take that back - I'm sorry, I apologize - that's overly offensive to people with mental impairments!)

Bottom line is, this ISN'T why we elected any of them - to feed off of us even AFTER they have left office!

So let's make an immediate change! Let's bring them all back to reality in a really big way. Let's require them to be covered by the same benefit plan they voted on which is currently in effect for all active duty military personnel and their families.

You want to see an upgrade to the military healthcare coverage's - this is the way to guarantee it happening very quickly!

The Big Liberal Fabrication and other plans.

(originally mailed August 18, 2009)

Let's all think back to "the run-up" to the last Presidential Campaign.
It was during that period when most of us first heard, "we have to protect the 47 million Americans currently without healthcare!"
Remember the televised debate where they were all the libs standing around in a semi-circle behind podiums? You had Biden, Edwards. Clinton, Richardson, Obama and the rest of the Libs all falling over one another trying to invoke the "47 million uninsured Americans" creation the most number of times!

There was just one small problem with the number then - and one small problem with the number now.... it's a fabrication!
Let me make sure everyone, (especially all the Lib voters out there) heard what I said ... the claim used by Liberal politicians that there are 47,000,000 uninsured Americans... is a LIE!!!

What makes this lie so much worse is that the Libs knew that it was a fabrication then - and they kept right on using it! Throughout the campaign - on through the election night "promises" speech - the Inaugural "promises" speech - and straight up through this past weekend ... when "President Promises" held his contrived town-hall meetings - out again trots the "47,000,000 uninsured Americans "number! And every time "President Promises" entones that number in a room full of Liberals - the place goes crazy and liberal women are seen crying, rending garments and calling out Obama's name! It really is great theatre - but unfortunately that's all it is....theatre.

So let's once and for all have a simple summary of what the 47,000,000 uninsured Americans actually represents. (BTW - all these numbers come from the U.S. Census Bureau).
  • Let's start with 47,000,000 uninsured persons.
  • Well, first you have to subtract the number of "illegal aliens" currently in the United States. This number is somewhere between 9,000,000 and 20,000,000.... Leaving somewhere between 38,000,000 and 27,000,000 uninsured Americans. (Just taking a "cue" here from my President when he kept yelling "words count!" You can't say there are 47 million uninsured Americans, when 11 to 20 million of them aren't Americans - now can you Mr. President! And if you planned to include them all along why didn't you tell us during the campaign? Why did you need to hide it until now?)
  • Then there are the young adults - those 18 to 35 year olds who elect NOT to purchase health insurance because they use the money for other things - they consider themselves "bullet proof" They number an additional 18,000,000. Suddenly the number of uninsured Americans has tumbled all they way down to between 9,000,000 and 20,000,000 uninsured Americans!
  • I haven't even figured in the 14 million Americans already eligible to receive governmental benefits who elect not to do so, or the 9 million more that come from households making in excess of $75,000 annually, who are therefore easily able to buy private insurance.
Whoa! - something strange has just happened you might say! We've just "erased" the 47,000,000 million uninsured number! Well, that's neat but it's not my point. My point is that the number the libs made up during the campaign to act as a rallying point for their Socialized Medicine drive, is easily dispelled for the lie that it is. So don't let the liberal schmucks get away with lying - call them on it whenever you get the chance - now you have the facts!

But let's say for the sake of humanity and argument that there are 20,000,000 Americans who are without healthcare insurance. When we have reached a point in our development as a nation, that the federal government can mandate the issuance of $787 BILLION in a Stimulus Plan - you'd think that someone in Obamanation (or healthcare) could figure out a plan for and the cost of covering a measly 20 million fellow-countrymen!
Scrapping the entire U.S. Healthcare Industry for the rest of us 290,000,000 Americans!!!!!!
(BTW - 20 million uninsured Americans equals 6.5% of the entire American population of 310,000,000)

# # # # #

And while we have touched on the subject of there being 310 million Americans ..... here's another point to ponder. Whenever Libs talk about other countries with successful socialized medicine programs, they love to throw up the United Kingdom and Canada as examples. For me this seems to be a fairly laughable comparison if only from the standpoint that the two countries have between 1/10th and 1/5th the population of the United States. And even with only 61+ million citizens in England, and 33+ million citizens in Canada, the "horror stories" concerning "wait times" for treatment, and benefit denials to patients with certain types of cancer patients would seem to be a examples Liberals would want to cover up rather than bring out!

One more HOT item. As near as I can figure it - we will never get meaningful reform of anything until one thing happens - and here it is.

Pass this around maybe we can get it voted on!!!
