How Wrong Can One Be?

March 5, 2014

Obama has turned out to be wrong most of the time but that is rarely acknowledged by true believers. For the idealistic, he “has to” be right, therefore, failure cannot occur, but it does and it has – consistently.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is turning out to be a catastrophe. Almost everything promised is turning out to be wrong while all the predictions heard from Senator Mike Enzi (and others) that were mocked are turning out to be right. Experts were ignored in favor of Obama’s “superior intelligence” and now provisions of the law are being delayed by Obama solely to keep the stink away from campaigning Democrats.

The Stimulus failed to revive the economy but believers claim it a success by saying our economy would be much worse if it was never put in place. Conveniently, that can never be proved, but it allows followers to deny failure and pretend they are right.

Global warming, rhetorically changed to “climate change” to ease embarrassment, fuels Obama’s continuing green policies even though predictions continue to prove wrong. Resent research conducted by the Environmental Policy Alliance shows that buildings receiving green energy certification use more energy than non-green buildings, but Obama’s “green” agenda continues to waste taxpayer money for idealistic purposes.

Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine is a direct result of Obama’s failed foreign policies. His inexperience and lack of decisiveness with Syria broadcast his weakness to the world. Putin has no fear of Obama and is taking full advantage just as Iran played him for a fool and is now on the verge of having a nuclear weapon. Allies (e.g. Israel) have been insulted while enemies have been appeased and USA world leadership and respect is at an all-time low.

Obama was also wrong about: Ushering in a “post racial” and “open door” administration; closing Gitmo; creating shovel ready jobs; Obamacare not being a tax; insurance rates going down; keeping one’s health plan; comprehensive immigration reform in his first term; Benghazi attack caused by video; Al Qaeda being decimated; unemployment reduction; and so much more.

How wrong can one be? For the sake of the country we can only hope we don’t find out.

Dizzy From Media Spin

January 14, 2014

“Bridgegate”, as the Christie traffic fiasco is being called, received 17 times more coverage from ABC, NBC, and CBS News in a 24-hour span than the IRS scandal received in 6 months. MSNBC is even going to run a one-hour special to discuss several “theories” about it.

MSNBC’s prescient Mika already provided her theory, stating: “we know Chris Christie and we know he would have known”. She also “knows” what is and isn’t a scandal, saying: “…to bring up Benghazi and the IRS is like flailing for some sort of distraction”. Four dead Americans have become just a distraction.

Bridgegate is a “twofer” for the liberal media. It’s an opportunity to smear a potential presidential candidate threatening Hillary’s chances and it is a substitute for Obama administration scandals that are getting harder and harder to ignore. It even has the additional benefit of keeping continuing negative Obamacare revelations from public awareness.

One of those revelations is that in 2014, 80% of individual costs to health insurance companies between $45,000 and $250,000 will be paid by the government. When insurance is purchased through the government exchanges, private insurance companies are only liable for costs below $45,000. Taxpayers pay the rest. This is not worthy to be a news story.

The continuing takeover by Al Qaida of abandoned Iraq isn’t news, either, except for NBC to tell us that the Iraq War wasn’t worth it. Obama made sure it wasn’t worth it when he failed (deliberately?) to maintain a military presence in Iraq after hastily pulling our troops out. His eagerness to get totally out of Iraq gave new life to defeated Al Qaida forces and they are now back. The media will protect Obama from any blame.

If you don’t like Obama and didn’t vote for him, you are a racist. If you don’t like Hillary and will not vote for her, you are a misogynist. For the media, it’s that simple – and it will be news. The so-called GOP war against women is THE talking point and you will hear it for the next three years as the media prepares to “make history”, again.

You are sure to become dizzy from the spin.

Progressive Derangement

November 26, 2013

Professor Noel Ignatiev at Massachusetts College seriously proclaimed to his class: “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites…what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing”.

It has been reported that this tirade basically calling for white males to commit suicide was received by his predominately white, middle-class students with a standing ovation. The “Diversity Chronicle” found it remarkable that “a few far-right extremists” actually objected to the professor’s “sound and reasonable words” that “resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind”. Therefore, an enlightened Ivan Fernando from the “Diversity Chronicle” interviewed Ignatiev to clear up any confusion.

Professor Ignatiev clarified: “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable, it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it…Those who object to my advice (destroying the cancer of humanity known as the white race), knowingly or perhaps unknowingly, are themselves white supremacists.” 

These are the words of wisdom from a retiring, tenured professor in our “progressive” education system. The fact that this is so blatantly racist that it makes Al Sharpton look moderate doesn’t even scratch the depth of its depravity, and our children are being brainwashed with twisted ideology like this in colleges all across the country. This is being paid for with second mortgages, student loans, and life-long savings.  

If this is the future you desire for your children, don’t vote. Stay home and let the deranged, squeaky wheels continue to steer the country. The past two presidential elections emboldened those who espouse this nonsense and it is being labeled “mainstream” thinking. Is it? If so, we are already past the point of no return. If not, we may still be able to avoid doom, but the “mainstream” has to vote to be heard.

Shocked Voters Deserve This Mess

October 31, 2013

Obamacare is falling apart badly enough to even have Chris Matthews, Obama’s biggest sycophant, question the president’s credibility on it. Hill Democrats are frustrated and publically acknowledging obvious problems for the first time. Self-righteous celebrities are now avoiding interviews about the health care law they were once blindly promoting for Obama.

It is now becoming clear that Obama knew long before now that his continued promise (lie?) of being able to keep existing health plans was not accurate. There should also be little doubt that he knew plan costs were not going to reduce across the board because that never made sense.

This fiasco should not be a surprise to anyone. It was accurately predicted by evil, heartless, racist, women-hating, war mongering Republicans who were, we were told, only against the health care law because they hate Obama and poor people. Warnings were given daily, heard only by those watching FOX News because the mainstream media didn’t want you to know.

Ignorant voters deserve this mess. Voting to make history rather than to make sense was stupid, and there is always a price to pay for stupidity. Apathy, too, comes at a price, so non-voters are just as deserving. We now have a healthcare system in turmoil, costing more, providing less, and promising even more problems and costs in the future.

Ignorance is often accompanied by arrogance, and the emotional investment many have in Obama produces both. A perfect example is MSNBC’s Ed Shultz who immediately went into denial proclaiming “there are no glitches” with the Obamacare rollout and blamed FOX News and Republicans for manufacturing glitches.

Others, such as Bill Maher and Howard Dean, have joined Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a surreal attempt to lay blame on Republicans who, en masse, voted against Obamacare. Denial is ramping up and reality is being distorted to fit the “dream”. With the farce of “comprehensive” immigration reform (aka amnesty) up next for ramming down our throats, reality is the administration’s worst enemy and must be avoided.

Unfortunately, wise and informed voters (a voter minority) will suffer, too, but with no shock. Their shock came when an inexperienced, far left freshman Senator with a background only in community organizing was voted in as president – twice.

Politically Correct Halloween

October 24, 2013

Christmas, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and most traditional holidays, have been targets of the “progressive” PC police in recent times, so it is not surprising to find Halloween under attack. It seems that those who self-righteously consider themselves champions of personal freedom are, once again, shamelessly trying to dictate everyone’s way of life and “transform” America.

The PC Command Center is our nation’s schools and it is there attacks begin. The Cumberland County, PA school district no longer allows costumes or parades for Halloween, citing “safety concerns” as reason for the ban. They do, however, allow dress-up days throughout the year for students to express individual creativity. That would probably include the PC-approved cross-dressing day held at a Milwaukee elementary school.

Inglewood Elementary School in the North Penn School District tried to ban Halloween using the popular and misinterpreted “Separation of Church and State” excuse. As extra ammunition, dietary concerns, specifically peanut allergies, were included. After an angry outcry from those whose sensitivities were supposed to have been rankled, the ban was lifted.

Colleges, however, have very little backlash when they “mold” the minds of students. Banning Halloween can be done in such a way that students do not even realize banning is taking place. The University of Colorado warns students to avoid costumes such as cowboys, Indians, white trash (which I’m sure includes hobos), over-sexualized themes (geishas, French maids), and anything portraying a culture (Pirates, gypsies, Mexican bandits?). The University of Minnesota allows cowboy costumes but not Indian ones or any that perpetuate racial, cultural, and gender stereotypes.

So, traditional baseball and football costumes are out because of the offensive Washington Redskins, Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, and Kansas City Chiefs. Robots are offensive because they replace human workers. President Obama masks are racist and President Bush masks are…well, Bush is just plain evil. Darth Vader is synonymous with Dick Cheney and a witch is synonymous with Sarah Palin and, of course, any priest or nun costume is highly offensive to progressives.

Halloween is becoming as hollow as the PC movement and progressive ideology, but nowhere near as frightening.

Liberals Paint Themselves Into a Corner

September 9, 2013

We have been inundated with the liberal meme that criticizing Obama means you are a racist. Fear of being labeled a racist has produced silence from many who would otherwise speak against his policies. Now, that meme is backfiring on liberals as Obama is on the verge of attacking Syria.

Radical leftist Ed Asner let the cat out of the bag when he told the Hollywood Reporter that there is little outcry in Hollywood over Obama’s war efforts because “A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama”. They have painted themselves into a corner with their racist meme and are now dumbfounded.

The silence from the likes of Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Barbra Streisand, Alec Baldwin, Janeane Garofalo, and so many more anti-war Bush bashers is deafening. These are people convinced of the idealistic notion that the only valid reason to resort to war is if free birth control is withheld from grade school kids. Now, fear of opposing their liberal, black hero, has them biting their tongues.

It would be laughable if it weren’t so pathetic – and it sure is pathetic. Liberal accusations of conservatives criticizing Obama because he is black have been turned around and proven to be a reason the left backs everything Obama does. Does that make them racists? In their twisted world, it certainly would, but most conservatives know better. It is just hypocrisy fueled by the two burning fires of liberalism: guilt and idealism.

Obama Wears No Pants

September 7, 2013

For the longest time, blinders enabled many to believe they had a leader in the White House who will fulfill their dream. Finally, the obvious is becoming recognized: The king wears no pants.

Yes, there are those who will stick with Obama regardless of his decisions or actions and go against their own long-held positions against military intervention of any sort and pay higher premiums for health care with less coverage. They are too heavily invested in ideology and will continue to see racism in every criticism in order to ease the burden of denying reality. However, many more are beginning to see for the first time.

It is like watching a slapstick comedy routine with Pelosi, Biden, Reid, Kerry, and other hardcore, partisan fools reversing positions they once held, pretending that military intervention is the president’s responsibility, and his alone. They even praised Obama as being courageous for going to Congress for approval, conveniently forgetting that Bush did so based on integrity, not indecision.

Obama has been given a pass on every blunder he made, and there have been many, but his lack of leadership, experience, and refusal to take responsibility can no longer be overlooked. He has positioned our country between a rock and a hard place with a foreign policy that emboldened enemies and alienated allies. His lack of leadership has been an embarrassment, and it has now become dangerous.

Focusing on social engineering and “fundamentally transforming America” into a progressive Eden has not only fractured our society; it has left the world with no direction or means to deal with the turmoil in the Middle East. The far-left’s desire to eradicate America as a super power has been advanced by the Obama administration to the point where keeping weapons of mass destruction out of the hands of terrorists may no longer be possible. Israel, surrounded by a sea of hate, may now be the world’s only hope, and the world is not friendly to Israel.

The proper course to take with Syria is not obvious. We are damned if we do and we may be damned if we don’t. What is obvious is that there is little trust in Obama making the right decision and even if he does, there is a growing feeling that he will somehow bungle that, too. We are deeply mired in Obama’s transformed America.

War on Words

August 6, 2013

The continuing war on words is currently being waged in Seattle where City Hall officials are considering “brown bag” and “citizen” to be offensive and in need of being banned from official records. The idea that “brown bag” is racist can only come from a far-left mind obsessed with race and racism. This innocent term has been used for as long one can remember and it is curious that anyone would consider it racist.

This obsessiveness with words being racist is nothing new. A Portland school principal argued that the mention of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich found in a lesson plan was subtly racist because others, such as Somali or Hispanic students, may not eat such sandwiches. What, then, must we do about tofu, prime rib, arugula, or foie gras?

Banning the word “citizen” so as not to offend is just more politically correct foolishness from Seattle. How many non-citizens can there be, not institutionalized, who are so sensitive that the word “citizen” upsets them? Who said it is the government’s responsibility to protect everyone from being offended anyway?

Many of the words that have been banned from standardized testing require a major stretch to rationalize removal, such as: dinosaur, disease, hunting, or abuse. These are common words with common meanings, and sheltering someone from their use does nothing for education.

It is fear of offending rather than the actual act of doing so that is at the root of this foolishness. This fear combines with guilt and an idealistic notion that the world can be made fair for all, creating a need to be a proactive champion of a minority that may consist of only a few people.

Words are not racist, people are, and banning words in an attempt to stop racism is nonsense. It is also nonsense to think that everyone needs to be protected from being offended. There are some who are offended by almost anything that’s said and catering to their sensitivities advances the victimization that permeates today’s society. We need to stop seeing ourselves as victims.

Al Sharpton’s Stunning Hypocrisy

July 26, 2013

It doesn’t get any more asinine or hypocritical than this: Al Sharpton, the man whose only occupation has been as a race monger blaming Whitey for everything wrong in the black community, is accusing right-wing pundits of stoking racial fears to boost ratings. You can’t make this stuff up.

Sharpton’s MSNBC show has given him a venue to promote his personal brand of racism, keep racial tensions high, and advertise the many protests he organizes around the country. If there is a camera, you will find Sharpton pompously pontificating on the racial injustice he will find under every bed.

Sharpton is a self-proclaimed, and loudly proclaimed, “leader” of a black community that never voted him in as leader of anything. In fact, Sharpton has never been voted into public office. He was the court jester candidate for the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, recognized by all as having no chance whatsoever, but good for a laugh or two.

The laughter is over and should have ended long ago, back in 1987, when Al was found liable by a jury for making defamatory statements against white men he was sure assaulted and raped 15-yr-old Tawana Brawley. Even after Brawley was found to have fabricated the entire story as a hoax, Al continued to proudly scream racist venom, never apologizing to the men whose name he smeared forever.

For Al Sharpton, there is no such thing as a guilty black man, an innocent white man, or a non-racial event. He sees things only in black and white and has made a good living doing so. Therefore, for him to accuse white pundits of doing ‘exactly’ what his entire life has been centered around is ludicrous, even if there was any truth whatsoever in the accusations – and there isn’t.

That’s Al: Ludicrous, ridiculous, and pompous. He anchors the black community in racial animosity and never advocates personal responsibility. When white pundits do so, they are attacked viciously by Al who learned well a thing or two from Saul Alinsky’s rules for radicals.

Sharpton is dangerous and should have been put out to pasture long ago. The black community is not well-served by his buffoonery; nor is civility and journalism.

Stupid Celebrity Boycott

July 23, 2013

Jay Z, Kanye West, Madonna, the Rolling Stones, and several other celebrities have joined Stevie Wonder in boycotting Florida because of Stand Your Ground laws. This will not hurt the state of Florida but it will upset fans and, eventually, hurt the celebrities themselves – and the black community will receive no benefit whatsoever.

To be consistent, which they never are and never will be, these celebrities must boycott half the states in the country because they, too, have Stand Your Ground laws. That would certainly cut into the amount of money these people pull in, so you can be sure it won’t go that far.

This is grandstanding, ignorance, and self-righteousness in a one-act play put on for an adoring media willing to treat them as knowledgeable spokespersons for normal society. The fact that Stand Your Ground laws played no role in the Zimmerman trial is being deliberately ignored because there is nothing else from the trial to realistically hang an idealistically disappointed hat on. Blindness to reality is part of their world to begin with, so this comes easy.

The only ones who will benefit from this boycott are those in Florida who don’t know who many of these pompous asses are, don’t care who they are, and don’t want to see them in the state anyway. When the press dies down and their agents find lucrative bookings in the Sunshine State, this boycott will just quietly go away.

When will we see a boycott of LA over gang warfare? When will we see a boycott of Mexico over illegal border crossings? When will we see a boycott of Hollywood over violence in films? When will we see a boycott of New York City over increasing anti-Semitism? When will we see a boycott of Philadelphia over the Gosnell murders?

Yeah, we all know when that will happen.
