Very Well Said

You must watch this video from this very well spoken man, Frederick Wilson II. He has a very important message to all his black brothers and sisters that I wonder if any of them will heed! I could have said the same thing, but would have been labeled some racist “cracker honky”. Wonder what label they will attach to him?

GeoEngineering and You

As a child in the 60’s I used to watch the airplanes flying way overhead of the New Mexico desert ski and marvel, as a child would, at the long trail of smoke it would leave behind. There were many days trails would crisscross the sky like a big tic-tac-toe board! As children of the 60’s and 70’s, we all grew up seeing this but did you ever wonder just what the hell it was? There has been a long debate over the US Military/Government using aircraft to spray who knows and why over a broad section of the country and surrounding oceans. The term “chemtrails” was born. Many believe this is all just conspiracy theory bunk not to be addressed. Those same people also do not believe climate is changing and quickly, more quickly than what has been seen in the geological record. I came across the below video presented by GeoEngineering Watch.org. It is a MUST SEE but plan on spending 46 minutes to watch the whole thing. Don’t be like the 99% of uninformed Americans that simply will not be bothered to spend the time. Please share it with your friends and family!  Get more information at their website (I have nothing to do with them, by the way). The video explains a lot of the strange weather we are seeing globally and the human manipulated changes to our climate and it has to end!

Time For Change

So we will have another four more years of the Obumble Administration in the White House! I can tell you that I didn’t put him there with my vote! I can also say I didn’t vote for the other guy either. I voted my conscience and for change! Granted, I knew my guy wouldn’t win and some would say that I just wasted my vote! Well my friends, those are the people this video alludes to, the cowards, the uninformed, the lemmings that don’t think anything can change, those only interested in status quo, the ones who won’t watch the video, the ones who will do NOTHING! Many of those who will actually watch, will just laugh it off and go back to their couches. I am hoping many, many, many more though will watch and really think about what is happening here in our great country and DO SOMETHING!!! Watch it a few times! Get out your tea bags and envelopes and mail them to your government representatives. May add a note, saying if they don’t start really working for you, you will fire them! WATCH AND DO SOMETHING!!!

Dogs And Leashes

Just got done walking my boy Cordell. We walk him without a leash. Why, because he is well mannered, tolerant of other dogs and people, shy, and just does better without one. Walked by a neighbors home today. She was pulling into her driveway as we were walking by. Someone in her home opens the door. Her big bushy something of a dog comes charging out of the home barking like crazy. She screams that he is not dog friendly as he tears for Cordell. Cordell just stands there expecting a greeting and then gets an open mouthed attack. Luckily he escaped injury and goes running away with this beast after him and both of us after both of them. He clearly out ran the charging dog and finally she caught up to him and grabbed his collar. Never once did her dog obey any of her commands to stop or heel. She walked back past me without even an apology, just a disgusted glance like it was my fault. Hey bitch, if your dog is that crazy, keep the beast under some kind of control in or out of your house. If Cordell had been tethered to me by a leash, we’d be at the vet by now. After he knew he was safe, he just waited for me to come to him. Your crazy ass dog ever does this again, I will hurt the bastard, YOU HEAR ME!

Tea Party and Libertarian Cowards

You know I am sick of politics and government as usual and think the path the current batch of crooks are leading America is into fiscal oblivion and financial ruin! That is why I became a supporter and a believer of both Ron and Rand Paul and the ideals of the Libertarian Party. I never fully jumped on the bandwagon of the so-called Tea Party movement though, as there are so many diverse variables within the movement. What I am a believer in is less intrusive, smaller, more honest and transparent government. I am (was) also a follower of the Campaign for Liberty mission and principles and have them as a Facebook Like and keep up with what is going on with the mission. Here is their mission statement:

Our mission is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a non interventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.

Then I came across this treatise, Corporate Infusion: What the Tea Party’s Really Serving America, written by Jamie Raskin, Senior Fellow, People For the American Way. It revealed some surprising agendas unfolding by some in the Tea Party and Libertarian camp and also showed some not so good indiscretions by both Ron and Rand Paul! There is also quite a history lesson given in some of the back office politicking done in the early days of the country! It is a long read, but very well worth it! Now read the Campaign for Liberty’s Statement of Principles:

Americans inherit from our ancestors a glorious tradition of freedom and resistance to oppression.  Our country has long been admired by the rest of the world for her great example of liberty and prosperity—a light shining in the darkness of tyranny.

But many Americans today are frustrated.  The political choices they are offered give them no real choice at all.  For all their talk of “change,” neither major political party as presently constituted challenges the status quo in any serious way.  Neither treats the Constitution with anything but contempt.  Neither offers any kind of change in monetary policy.  Neither wants to make the reductions in government that our crushing debt burden demands.  Neither talks about bringing American troops home not just from Iraq but from around the world.  Our country is going bankrupt, and none of these sensible proposals are even on the table.

This destructive bipartisan consensus has suffocated American political life for many years.  Anyone who tries to ask fundamental questions instead of cosmetic ones is ridiculed or ignored.

That is why the Campaign for Liberty was established: to highlight the neglected but common-sense principles we champion and reinsert them into the American political conversation.

The U.S. Constitution is at the heart of what the Campaign for Liberty stands for, since the very least we can demand of our government is fidelity to its own governing document.  Claims that our Constitution was meant to be a “living document” that judges may interpret as they please are fraudulent, incompatible with republican government, and without foundation in the constitutional text or the thinking of the Framers.  Thomas Jefferson spoke of binding our rulers down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution, and we are proud to follow in his distinguished lineage.

With our Founding Fathers, we also believe in a noninterventionist foreign policy.  Inspired by the old Robert Taft wing of the Republican Party, we are convinced that the American people cannot remain free and prosperous with 700 military bases around the world, troops in 130 countries, and a steady diet of war propaganda.  Our military overstretch is undermining our national defense and bankrupting our country.

We believe that the free market, reviled by people who do not understand it, is the most just and humane economic system and the greatest engine of prosperity the world has ever known.

We believe with Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, and F.A. Hayek that central banking distorts economic decision making and misleads entrepreneurs into making unsound investments.  Hayek won the Nobel Prize for showing how central banks’ interference with interest rates sets the stage for economic downturns.  And the central bank’s ability to create money out of thin air transfers wealth from the most vulnerable to those with political pull, since it is the latter who receive the new money before the price increases it brings in its wake have yet occurred.  For economic and moral reasons, therefore, we join the great twentieth-century economists in opposing the Federal Reserve System, which has reduced the value of the dollar by 95 percent since it began in 1913.

We oppose the dehumanizing assumption that all issues that divide us must be settled at the federal level and forced on every American community, whether by activist judges, a power-hungry executive, or a meddling Congress.  We believe in the humane alternative of local self-government, as called for in our Constitution.

We oppose the transfer of American sovereignty to supranational organizations in which the American people possess no elected representatives.  Such compromises of our country’s independence run counter to the principles of the American Revolution, which was fought on behalf of self-government and local control.  Most of these organizations have a terrible track record even on their own terms: how much poverty have the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund actually alleviated, for example?  The peoples of the world can interact with each other just fine in the absence of bureaucratic intermediaries that undermine their sovereignty.

We believe that freedom is an indivisible whole, and that it includes not only economic liberty but civil liberties and privacy rights as well, all of which are historic rights that our civilization has cherished from time immemorial.

Our stances on other issues can be deduced from these general principles.

Our country is ailing.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that the remedy is so simple and attractive: a return to the principles our Founders taught us.  Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy constitute the foundation of the Campaign for Liberty.

If you have read both, these principles seem contradictory to some of the actions of the Tea Party and Libertarian Party, does it not? So I decided to post the link of the treatise on the Campaign For Liberty’s Facebook wall. I expected to get a defense or rebuttal of these accusations of the Tea Partiers, Libertarians, and even the Paul’s but got a deleted post. I posted the link two more times and both times it was deleted in a manner of seconds. I then posted a personal challenge and question as to what they are afraid of and got nothing in return but quick deletions of anything I posted. It would seem as though there may be some truth to this treatise and they are running scared. I put my faith and trust into this new and exciting direction of American politics, but it seems that getting the Government back in the hands of the hands of the American people will just remain an illusion. It will be just business as usual, just with a different bunch of crooks at the helm. At this point, whom do you trust in government…..nobody? What is left for the American people to believe in? Should we take our government back by way of revolution? Is there any fight left in the American people? Think about it…….. I am pissed!

This Senior Citizen Nailed It!!!

Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming , Co-Chair of Obama’s deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared “Social Security” to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.August, 2010.
Here’s a response in a letter from a unknown fellow in Montana …I think he is a little ticked off!   He also tells it like it is !
—————————————————————————————————————————- 

“Hey Alan, let’s get a few things straight..

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme
that would have made Bernie Madoff proud.

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67.  NOW, you and your shill commission is proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5  I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an  extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6.  I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why?  Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To add insult to injury, you label us “greedy” for calling “bullshit” on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU.1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4.  What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have  you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the “greedy” ones.  It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.  And for what?  Votes.  That’s right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers.  You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.

Life As Metro Bus Driver

A very well written article of what it is like on my job and how my working conditions are deteriorating! Maybe Kathy Lambert and the rest of the King County Council should read it also, since she and some others on the Council have put targets on our backs!
