Obama – Forgetting About America

January 6, 2010 Leave a comment

The sad thing about this song is that this song tells the truth. You realize that if McCain and Palin would have been elected we wouldn’t have senators buying off votes for the single biggest bill in the last 50 years. We might have some bribes for little bills that don’t realy affect anyone but the state that wants them, but it wouldn’t be on a bill that is going to ruin America for our kids and grand kids. Sure we need health care reform, but we don’t need the government controling the entire health care system. If the U.S. government wants to reform health care and loser cost for the American people then they need to just put stipulations on how much can be charged for health services. They need to cut down on malpractice lawsuits. They need to stop the drug companies from raising prices to where the average American can’t afford them. What we need is a government who helps American citizens not one who wants to control them. I’ve stated in my other articles how I feel about government control. We are suppose to be a free country, but at the same time the government dictates what we do everyday. Where is the man that ran for office who was supposed to bring change and listen to the American people?

Another thing! What ever happend to the redistribution of wealth? All Obama has done since he got into office is hand money out to the leaders of corporate America, and line their pockets even more. If a corporation can’t keep doing business the way they always have then they need to either fix the problem or go bankrupt. The tax payers money is not for saving some rich mans company from bankruptcy. If they can’t run their company then they need to step down or close down, and let someone who can handle doing what needs to be done. If GM and Chrysler would’ve went under then someone with fresh ideas and determination to produce something better would step up. I fully believe in America and it’s people that we have enough brilliant young people who will step up and create new companies which will create new jobs, and we don’t need the president giving away tax payers money to save companies that haven’t moved ahead with the times or are to greedy to take a pay cut in order to save their own jobs.

Obama’s Executive Order 12425 (interpol)

January 2, 2010 Leave a comment

” A few days ago Recliner Commentaries commented on President Obama’s quietly-passed executive order allowing Interpol to operate in America, unrestrained by the U.S. Constitution or American law.

Today, Larry O’Connor wonders aloud if any reporters would ask our president:

“Mr. President, is it true that due to your amendment to Executive Order 12425, INTERPOL may break into a home without a warrant, seize private property of a US citizen, hold a citizen for questioning without the right of legal representation and not be subject to any legal or criminal repercussion?”

I have to wonder, under this executive order, what would prevent a future corrupt President from exerting influence on Interpol to have his or her political enemies arrested and deported for trial, let’s say, for example, for hate crimes violations due to “defaming” Islam or speaking out against homosexuality?”

Quote from The Recliner Commentaries

Ok now our suppose to be great leader is taking our rights away without anyone knowing about it! How can this be legal? Interpol has no right to just barge into my house and take what they want, or imprison me without some set of rules to follow. If interpol was aloud to treat American citizens like this, then what’s stopping our president from having complete control? I do believe Obama is trying to take over our country and all he really cares about is the power he has and how he can get more of it. Since he’s been in office he has done nothing to help Americans, but has taken sides against America every chance he has gotten. If we don’t stand up against this tyrant now then soon we won’t have the ability to even question his doing without being thrown in jail or executed. We can not sit back and watch this mad man take control of our country any longer. He should be impeached for not upholding the constitution, not receiving a nobel peace prize. America is on the verge of becoming the next Roman empire with Obama playing the role of Caesar.

Rush Limbaugh

December 31, 2009 7 comments

Wow I’m amazed at how heartless some people are. I’m monitoring twitter and reading some of the most disturbing comments about Rush Limbaugh. I can’t begin to count all the times I read that someone wishes him dead. Just goes to show how liberals think, “all about themselves”. Well my thoughts on this matter are that Mr. Limbaugh does an great job at exposing the truth. Many people do not like hearing the truth. So therefore they don’t like him. My prayers go out to you Rush Limbaugh, keep up the fight. One day this nation will realize you were right and they will still hate you for it.

tweets about Rush Limbaugh-

“MargoEve If we had any doubt that she is a true class act: RT @maddow All best wishes to Mr. Limbaugh tonight, for a full and speedy recovery.”

“ntxjeran RT @paulfreed I hope Pres. O visits that asshole Limbaugh n the hosp jst to prov he’s a bigger man that king dittohead //don’t hld ur breath”

“erinbriordan F’ing awesome RT @ghawi: Haha! “Rush Limbaugh has heart attack in Hawaii. Must have found Obama’s birth certificate” (via @yowhatupT)”

“REDHK wonder if @maddow’s robot folwrs will take her classy lead RT @maddow All best wishes to Mr. Limbaugh tonight for full & speedy recovery”

“ericford I told @lcsweeney that Limbaugh was rushed (har har) to the hospital. Her response? “Good, one less person to influence my dad’s politics.”

“RealAE @Ajjenkins07 out of context? “u mean to tell me there aint nobody brave enough in hawaii hospital to put a pillow over rush limbaugh head?”

I have to say it saddens me to read these comments about a fellow American. When we sit back and allow terrorist to have more rights than a talk show host it just goes to show that our country is heading for disaster!

I would like to get as many comments as possible on this post so I can send it to Rush Limbaugh and show our support.

Reasons Democratic Governments Need Separation of Powers

December 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Separation of powers is the term that describes the independence of each of the branches of a democratic government. This was first practiced in ancient Greece and it later spread to the Roman Republic and became part of its constitution. Also known as trias politica, separation of powers commonly refer to the independence of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of the government.

* With separation of powers, the rule of law is properly enforced.

With each branch of government focusing on its duty to create laws, execute the laws and facilitate the judicial process to implement the penalties for the violations of the country or state laws. Without separation of powers, each of the three divisions of the government will not be able to focus on its specific participation in the maintenance of peace and order in the country.

* Through the separation of powers, there is check and balance in the government.

Since each division of the government takes part in upholding the law, it is possible to catch any loophole in the process that was overlooked by the other divisions. This gives the government a form of self-regulation in case there are things that are being challenged regarding the creation or implementation of the laws. Having an independent judicial system also permits the citizens to present their side regarding the violations that are filed against them. This also allows the judicial branch to study specific laws and the decisions of this branch can be used to further strengthen or clarify the laws created by the legislative branch.

* Separation of powers prevents the concentration of power in a single person or entity.

A democratic country would like to prevent tyranny from taking place. The possibility of tyranny can occur when too much power is given to a person or a division of the government. With the power of the law divided among the three branches of the government, the chance that a person will easily get full control of the government is diminished. This is one of the most important benefits of distributing the legislative, executive and judicial powers to different branches in the government.

Because of the value of having independent divisions of the government, many societies will not permit changes in their government that will reduce the independence of each of the branches. It is interesting to note though, that while there are countries that elect their executive officers from the members of the legislative body, once the leaders have been elected, they create a space between the two branches in order to limit each other.

Unruly Passenger Disrupts Another Amsterdam-to-Detroit Flight

December 28, 2009 Leave a comment

Another incident occurred today on the same Northwest Airlines Amsterdam-to-Detroit flight on which a terrorist suspect tried to ignite an explosive device on Christmas Day, but this time authorities said it was caused by a unruly passenger who did not pose a terrorist threat.

No one was hurt on the flight which was carrying 255 passengers.

The man was Nigerian, as was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the 23-year old who unsuccessfully tried to ignite an explosive device on a Northwest plane on Friday. Amsterdam is an air hub for travelers from Nigeria headed for other destinations.

The flight crew became concerned when the passenger, a businessman, locked himself in the plane’s bathroom for an hour. Abdulmutallab had also spent a long time in the bathroom before returning to his seat, complaining of an upset stomach and pulling a blanket over his head just before trying to set off his explosion. However, officials said today’s passenger was legitimately ill.

“This raised concerns so an alert was raised,” FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said. “The investigation shows that this was a non-serious incident and all is clear at this point.”

The second incident on a Northwest 253 flight in three days came as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other officials sought to reassure the public about the safety of flying and moved to ramp up security measures at airports.

The TSA said, “The flight landed safely at Detroit International Airport at approximately 12:35 pm eastern time without incident. The aircraft has been moved to a remote location for additional screening. TSA and law enforcement met the aircraft upon arrival, the passenger is now in custody.”

Department of Homeland Security Press Secretary Sara Kuban offered some details. “A passenger on today’s Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit spent an unusually long time in the aircraft lavatory,” she said. “Due to this unusual behavior, the airline notified TSA and the agency directed the flight to taxi to a remote area upon landing to be met by law enforcement and DHS. The passenger in question, a Nigerian national, was removed from the flight and interviewed by the FBI; indications at this time are that the individual’s behavior is due to legitimate illness, and no other suspicious behavior or materials have been found. Though this does not appear at this time to be a security incident, in an abundance of caution, the aircraft was fully screened, with negative results, and all baggage is being rescreened before the aircraft taxis to the gate.”

In Hawaii, where President Obama is vacationing with his family, White House spokesman William Burton said, “The President was notified shortly after 9:00 a.m. Hawaiian time of the incident regarding an unruly passenger on the flight arriving in Detroit by NSS (National Security Council) chief of staff Denis McDonough. The President stressed the importance of maintaining heightened security measures for all air travel and gave instructions to set up another secure teleconference briefing as soon as possible.”

This is an article I found on AOL politics blog. If people are going to try and kill U.S. citizens then they should be killed without a trial and immediately after capture. I’m so tired of having to be politicly correct with how we handle everything. This man is a terrorist and does not have the rights of U.S. citizens, so why do we give them to him. I say make an example of him for the rest of the terrorist who want to try something on us.

Dumbocracy: Adventures With the Loony Left, the Rabid Right and Other American Idiots

Dumbocracy: Adventures With the Loony Left, the Rabid Right and Other American Idiots, Marty Beckerman, 2008, ISBN 9781934708064

The author spent four years visiting with political extremists on both sides of the spectrum. These are people who believe in nothing less than total victory for their side. Most Americans are moderates on the issues, but, for instance, pro-life and anti-war activists still see things as very black and white.

Beckerman discovered a lot of interesting things in his travels. Betty Friedan, founder of the National Organization for Women, compared American housewives to the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps. Those on the Right blame homosexuality for the destruction of American society, but just over half of Americans think of homosexuality as an acceptable life-style. Texas A&M University requires that all faculty members celebrate and promote homosexuality.

It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact.–Ann Coulter. The American Institute for Philanthropy has ranked MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) as one of the most corrupt and least effective charities in the country. In 2006, the California Supreme Court allowed authorities to break into citizens’ homes anytime–without a warrant–to check their blood alcohol levels. A legislator in Missouri compared biology teachers to terrorists, for teaching evolution. Environmental activists have demanded control over citizens’ home thermostats, threatened to spy on those who do not recycle and suggested that governments should intelligently reduce human populations to one-sixth their present number.

In 2006, the Bush Administration joined with Iran to ban a gay-rights group from addressing the United Nations. In 2004, Canada officially banned criticism of homosexuality, which is now punishable by up to five years in prison. Also in 2006, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that forcing drug suspects to consume laxatives, in order to find drugs in their digestive tracts, is not an unreasonable search. In the 1990’s, a Republican member of Congress proposed mandating the death penalty for all drug dealers. When his son was convicted of growing thirty marijuana plants, he received community service, not a lethal injection. Neither side has a monopoly on hatred of free speech.

This is the sort of book that will be thrown across the room by True Believers on both sides (sometimes those are the best kind of books). For everyone else, it is an excellent, and eye opening, look at the state of politics in America. It is very much worth reading.

My opinion on health care.

December 25, 2009 2 comments

It’s not the government’s responsibility or their right to supply health care for United States citizens. The people who think the government owes them health care are the people who should move to Canada where they already know the affects of government run health care. How can they plan to run health care when they can’t run Medicare or welfare and they’ve been trying that for years? I do believe that our healthcare system needs change, but not government control. By fixing the flaws with health insurance companies and lowering how much can be charged for surgery and other medical practices we could make health insurance more affordable to the American people.
