Sounds like the Dems are starting to get wind that Obama will throw anything under the bus for his gain. Including all the promises that got votes for him on Iraq.
Maybe the honeymoon is over for him, we can only hope. At least I hope the voters have seen through him, at least enough to keep him out in 2012. . . . .
In a nutshell what they want to do is charge you for driving over the bridges to Cape Cod. They may only bill non Cape folks. How? Well they want to use cameras to take license photos, then match them to you and send a bill.
So to get the toll they need to add cameras, people to read the photos and the cost to mail out the bills. And if they pick the number wrong you get a bill even if you didn't go there and have to prove it was not you. . . .
See they claim that the Cape folks get stuck with the bill to care for the roads and bridges when over the summer the population grows to 3x normal with tourists. And the tourists don't pay for the roads they use. . . Um excuse me but the Cape lives on Tourist Dollars folks. . . they pay for rooms, food, things to do. . . you get plenty of money out of them. If you don't like tourists then tell them not to come, don't screw them more. . .
My answer to the Cape folks is simple - if you don't want us to come to the cape and spend our money, we won't come. You folks pass this and I hope the rest of us have the brains to Boycott the Cape!
Looks like Obama is already starting to push out how long he is going to keep the troops in Iraq. . . . And he will leave more "non combat" troops in there and longer than he said too. . .
Right from CNN
I guess he can't pull out the troops as promised. Amazing what happens when he has to deal with the facts instead of campaign promises to get elected. . . . and you fools fell for it
I would say we should keep a list of all the promises thrown under the bus, but it is easier to say "just about all of them" and you are done. . . .

And from Snowflakes in Hell we get more on the upside of this:
This bill is too important for the Democrats for Obama not to sign it. It is a giveaway to an important political constituency, the part of it that gives DC representation is also completely unconstitutional to boot! So that part is likely to be thrown out by the courts.
Yay team. And it shows that no matter what Obama and his team are saying the folks in Congress seem to know gun regulation is a loosing issue for them. . . .
57-41 a bill passed in the Senate to make sure we have the right mix.
How do we do this and why? Either they have to take away stations from the folks that own them now and give them to minorities, or they have to fund new minority owned stations. Either way we are screwed. This is un-Constitutional end of line.
They are going to take either our money or someone elses property so they can re-allocate it they way they want. This is a joke.
We need to wake up and get the government back under control and out of our lives as much as possible. If this passes it is another step to total government control of our lives. . . And the loss of free speech. All I have to ask is why is this radio only? No TV needs to be controlled? Not going after talk radio are you?. . . . ya, right, tell me another one
We will see. . .
Bid Goddess rise, from mists of memory
Rise, the fair Cathain
In battle the equal of every man
And every lover disdained
Her heart was locked in a roundtower's keep
And none that gate could unbar
Till rose a prince from Ulster's east
The hero Conchobar
A suitor's troth he brought Cathain
In wild Connemar'
He bade her teach him feats of arms
And the bloody arts of war
And what, said she, will you teach me
Who dwells here all alone?
The pleasures of love, said Conchobar
I will melt your heart of stone.
So King and warrior thus were joined
In battles blood and love
The throne belonged to Conchobar
To Cathain, the Witch's Glove
The world soon turned his heart away
So back to Connemar'
She westward rode to dwell alone
Away from Conchobar
Dark rivals rose against the king
To challenge for his throne
All Ulster in the balance hung
Without its champion
A Druid he sent to sacrifice
An offering to Cathain
A maiden fair, with flaxen hair
Not once, but two times slain
But Cathain, she would ne'r return
To rescue Conchobar
Till the Druid did a virgin bring
To Connemara far
The fair Iona pure and sweet
upon the table lain
And by the corclach's hungry stone
Was Cathain's own daughter slain
In rage the warrior goddess
From the western sea arose
Her bloody gauntlet dealt that day
a thousand fierce death-blows
The kingdom saved, her quest complete
she sank beneath the shore
Till Ulster's sons with sacrifice
Bid her return once more.
Here is one that hits home now and probably will for a while. . .
Jamey Johnson - In Color
I said grandpa whats this picture here its all black and white it aint real clear is that you there? He said yeah i was 11 times were tough back in '35 thats me and uncle Joe just tryin to survive a cotton farm in the great depression.
If it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other you should've seen it in color.
Ohh and this one here was taken over seas in the middle of hell in 1943 in the winter time you can almost see my breath that was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee he was a high school teacher from new Orleans and he had my back right through the day we left.
If it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other you should've seen it in color.
A picture's worth a thousand words but you cant see what those shades of gray keep covered you should've seen it in color
This one is my favorite one. This is me and grandma in the summer sun all dressed up the day we said our vows. You can't tell it here but it was hot that June and that rose was red and her eyes were blue and just look at that smile I was so proud. Thats the story of my life right there in black and white
And if it looks like we were scared to death like a couple of kids just trying to save each other you should've seen it in color.
A pictures worth a thousand words but you cant see what those shades of gray keep covered you should have seen it in color.
You should have seen it in color
Yeah a pictures worth a thousand words but you cant see what those shades of gray keep covered you should have seen it in color.
Folks, this is more smoke and mirrors.
They say it is to stop crime in the streets -
The Fact - the original AWB ran out after 10 years and was shown to have NO effect on crime
They say it will stop arms going to Mexico and the drug lords -
The Fact - the automatic weapons and grenades that are used in Mexico can not be purchased legally in the US NOW by civilians. A new AWB will not change that
They say it will prevent the sale of assault weapons to civilians -
The Fact - civilians can not buy Assault Weapons now - an assault weapon is capable of fully automatic fire and it is illegal to own an automatic weapon in the US NOW without special permits that are NOT easy to get.
They say it bans assault weapons -
The Fact - no, the guns it bans only look like assault weapons cosmetically. They are NOT assault weapons and with some minor cosmetic changes are the same guns use to hunt and for sport shooting and home defense all over the US. These are single shot only weapons, NOT the AUTOMATICS the gun grabbers are talking about and showing you.
Folks, show you are an adult and do your research and you will see. This is a quick way to look tough on crime that will do nothing but further degrade our rights in this country. We need to fight this ban should it ever see the light of day in Congress. They want to remove the Second Amendment because that is the one Amendment that makes sure we the people can protect the rest of them. . .
It is also another example of Obama showing that he lied to us to get into office. More of his promises thrown under the bus. He is a socialist at best, a Marxist at worse and he will and is doing his best to turn us into a Marxist country. . .

Seems he can fool the Dems and a few others to vote for him but he can't fool the folks with the money that actually make the economy work. . . They know what he is doing and the damage he is causing. . .
Read on it on CNN HERE
Anyone that can blow through the cash this guy did in his first 30 days in office then turn around and claim he is all about reducing the deficit is just plane FRACKING NUTS!
I could not sit there and watch him lie to me about how good things really are and that all is now well. . . . . seems to me he is doing exactly the same thing as Bush, just more of it and it is now OK as opposed to destroying the world when Bush did it. . . It didn't fix things for Bush, it won't for you either. The market has to be left alone to correct. Badly run businesses will fail and we will all move on. . . .
Dude, you just sank us, my kids, and my grand kids under a debt I can't even comprehend. And all of it caused the markets to drop 2000 or so points since you got into office. Now you want billions more for the banks. . . . You just don't get it do you.
Don't worry, I am sure they will come up with new ways for you to de-value the dollar and F the country before you are done. . .
Update - WOW, I hear now he is going to cure Cancer too! Cool! Like no one has tried that before. . . that whole speech was crack for the masses to keep them happy and to make sure they don't look at what he is really doing folks. . .
I will give him points for saying he found 2 trillion he can cut in the next DECADE! Ya, but what are they and when will you make them. . . that is what I thought. . . more smoke and mirrors

National rate of Mortgages in trouble 14%
This is where the problems are. Many states are not having these problems. And if you are somehow managing to pay your bills, no help for you! We only give bail out money to the slobs who don't pay their bills. . .
This makes me sick. They keep raising the taxes, fees and our pay checks don't go up. . . I am paying my bills but how am I supposed to stay on top of them when you keep taking more of MY money to pay for these Bail Out schemes. . .
Keep your hands off my money Mr. Government. Time to cut your spending until it hurts and then some more just like us tax payers have to. . . .
Gitmo to stay open -
Abu ghraib prison will reopen and that is ok
War in Pakistan will expand and that is good
Job loss is good - more time with family
So he does the same thing Bush does, but the news folks love him and play it up as good stuff where they were screaming bloody murder under Bush for the same thing. . . .
The double standard goes on. . .
While that alone is depressing, and my sympathy's go out to the parents, read it and see what their families are doing to pay off the kids debt. In our country folks don't care and run for the bail out money, let their homes be foreclosed on, and for years spent without a care and then went bankrupt to avoid paying. . .
These folks are poor, and they still know they have to pay off the debt. They don't make excuse, and are actually upset by the fact they can't pay and they have a good reason.
Who are we to wine about paying our bills when we don't have a good reason. . . . It shows how far we have fell. There was a time when folks here would have felt the same way. . . . how do we get back there?
Saturday, February 21, 2009
Their answer? He didn't read the bail out and is irresponsible for stirring up folks against it. . .
WTF? no one that voted for this crap read it - YOU DIDN'T GIVE THEM THE TIME.
they don't see how upset folks are getting (and or they don't care) - total disconnect from the voters. Yet they still keep giving away our cash.
This is not a good sign if you ask me. We are heading to that place where voter and government but heads and it won't be a good time. . . .

State of Readiness
In 1960, Robert Menard was a Commander aboard the USS Constellation when
he was part of a meeting between United States Navy personnel and their
counterparts in the Japanese Defense Forces.
Fifteen years had passed since VJ day, most of those at the meeting were
WWII veterans, and men who had fought each other to the death at sea were
now comrades in battle who could confide in one another.
Someone at the table asked a Japanese admiral why, with the Pacific Fleet
devastated at Pearl Harbor and the mainland US forces in what Japan had to
know was a pathetic state of unreadiness, Japan had not simply invaded the
Commander Menard would never forget the crafty look on the Japanese
commander's face as he frankly answered the question.
"You are right," he told the Americans. "We did indeed know much about
your preparedness. We knew that probably every second home in your country
contained firearms. We knew that your country actually had state
championships for private citizens shooting military rifles. We were not
fools to set foot in such quicksand."
And for the folks on the Left. . .
A pessimist will study and learn the Chinese language.
An optimist will study and learn the English language.
A realist will study and learn the Kalashnikov rifle.
And the best for last:
Government is non-consensual S&M with the Second Amendment as the only safe word.
Thanks Governor. I hope we can toss your ass out next year!
In this economy when Massachusetts families are loosing their homes, jobs, and living paycheck to paycheck if you are lucky the liberal idiots we keep voting into office are taking more of our money!
I don't have more money to give you! Hell I would move but I can't sell my house in this pit of a state! Thank you for screwing the working man again. . . .
Someday I will get out of this state and NEVER look back!
Here is what ACORN said about a house in forclosure:
"This is our house now," said Louis Beverly, ACORN.
Ya, um, no it is not.
These guys will not be happy until shots are fired, mark my words.
As for who owns the house? Legally or at least until Obama came to power the bank did. The house was bought with the BANKS money. You pay them back with your money. So you own part of the house and they own part.
If you stop paying them back they are legally allowed to sell the house to recover their money, and you get any left over. That is the way it has always been, how is it suddenly wrong?
How can people say they didn't know this and it is all the banks fault?
You signed a contract, you were told the following -
If the interest rate could go up or not
What your monthly payment would be
When you had to pay it
How long you had to pay it
How you could pay it off
What happens if you stop paying it
You stop, you loose the house. I am sorry but that is it, no one scammed you. If you over extended then it is your fault, not the banks. No one made you sign.
To top it off, I am busy trying to pay my mortgage so I don't lose my house. I do not owe you anything from my taxes to pay off yours. . . . Sell it, take the loss and down size or go rent. You and your family have NO RIGHT to my money.
Personally I would say we are not all cowards, but then again maybe that is how Obama got into office, folks to scared to vote against the black guy even though he is cluesless and not ready for the POTUS job. . .
Well, look where it got us.
I think the 48% or so that didn't vote for him are not cowards, and they are going to have to pick up the pieces when he is done and put this country back together.
As for Eric Holder our AG, all I can say is from me and my family - FU. We are not cowards, generations of my family have fought and died for this country so scum like you could slime your way into DC and F it up. Thanks for the thought though.
Can't wait till you leave (maybe 4 years, maybe less if we can impeach the ass in charge), don't let the door hit you on the way out. Once your gone the grown ups can get back to fixing you and Obamas mess. . . .
Great post over at American Thinker go read
I love the lady explaining the offer from Angel something - if she takes our offer and the public chips in she won't need to have the government pay for her. . . .
Blackmail? You will pay for her and the kids, either by choice or by tax money. . . .
Thanks, we get it. . .

Seems the Congress has found a way to avoid getting investigated. . .
More HERE on it
In a nutshell the bail out or stimulus bill, creates something called the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board — the RAT Board
Congress has given the RAT Board the authority to ask “that an inspector general conduct or refrain from conducting an audit or investigation.” If the inspector general doesn’t want to follow the wishes of the RAT Board, he’ll have to write a report explaining his decision to the board, as well as to the head of his agency (from whom he is supposedly independent) and to Congress.
So now they can make it very hard to look into what they are doing. . . . ya, that is Transparency all right. Obama and friends have just make it easier for corruption to keep growing in DC. . . They can now ask you to halt an investigation or send you after their political enemy. . . more partisan games.
Way to go Obama. How to bring Chicago level corruption to the rest of us. Guess that answers why they didn't want folks reading this before they passed it. Who knows what else they have buried in this mess. . . we will find out. . . .
This reporter at CNBC is just going nuts on Obama and the bail out. . .
Watch the video HERE and watch the reaction of the traders on the floor. . . filmed in a stock market - not sure if it is NY or Chicago. . .
thanks to the Gunslinger for the link to this one. . .
Seems a bit scary to me. The cop thinks he has the right to pull a guy over for an anti-Obama sign?
Then they call in the Secret Service who want to interview the guy and walk through his house?
This guy made no threat, and did nothing wrong. . . .
Sounds like the start to the end of the First Amendment to me. . . .
But I thought Hillary said it was Patriotic to question the administration, any administration. . . .
Hmmm. . . Double standards anyone?
Pastor and Hakim note that the United States helps fuel the violence, not only by providing a ready market for illegal drugs, but also by supplying the vast majority of weapons used by drug gangs.
Pastor says there are at least 6,600 U.S. gun shops within 100 miles of the Mexican border and more than 90 percent of weapons in Mexico come from the United States.
And it's not just handguns. Drug traffickers used a bazooka in Tuesday's shootout with federal police and army soldiers in Reynosa, Mexico, across the border from McAllen, Texas.
"The drug gangs are better equipped than the army," Hakim said.
Now that is interesting. . . I didn't know you could sell rocket launchers and millitary weapons at a gun shop. . . maybe because YOU CAN'T
Way to ignore the facts CNN. Then they of course blame the US for the problems. . . ignoring the corruption and greed south of the border. . .
Pastor calls the problem in Mexico "even worse than Chicago during the Prohibition era" and said a solution similar to what ended that violence is needed now.
"What worked in the U.S. was not Eliot Ness," he said, referring to the federal agent famous for fighting gangsters in 1920s and '30s. "It was the repeal of Prohibition."
Here is a gem, someone realized that Prohibition did not work? You think they would act on it here? Naaa. Not only does it not work on drugs or drinking, it don't work on guns or anything else the people want folks. Maybe we should wake up to that here in the US. . .
Oh Ya, and get our military to the Mexican boarder to seal it for all our own good!
That spokeswoman, Joann Killeen, told CNN's Larry King on Monday that grandmother Angela Suleman had taken care of Suleman's six children at the home while Suleman was on bed rest for 10 weeks before giving birth to the octuplets.
"Grandma is tired," Killeen said. "Grandma and grandpa are in their 70s. You know, they've raised a daughter. I'm sure they didn't think that they were going to be helping to raise six children."
How self centered is this woman. She is on welfare for all practical purposes, homeless, her folks home is getting foreclosed on, she is single and needed fertility treatments to have the 8 kids in addition to the 6 she has. And she wants to go to school. . . wonder who is paying for that?
This woman is a greedy POS! Where do they get the idea anyone owes them this crap! Get a job and earn it yourself you worthless POS!
I hope you all like your new kids because we are going to be the ones paying the bills on all this for her!
I hope there is some way the government can put a lean on her or garnish her wages or something to get some of the money back. Folks expect too much from the government these days.
She is no better than a thief, stealing our tax money so she can do whatever she wants she just gets the government to take it from us instead of doing it herself. . .

Where does this fool think all this money comes from? If they print it the value of the dollar will go down and we are all screwed. If they take it in taxes then we can't spend it on food, housing, gas or anything and the market get worse and we are all screwed. . . .
I guess no mater what we do we are all screwed.
Can't wait to see the elections in 2010. . . . I hope the Dems at least loose congress if not win some states back too. . . Obama is heading for a one term run, and it can't be over fast enough. . .

Obama to sign Stimulus PORK bill - DOW DOWN 257 points so far
Obama spokesman says he would not be against a second stimulus package if needed. . .
WTF? Is he afraid the first one won't kill us? Good to know he will be working on a second one if we don't go socialist fast enough. . . .
What a bunch of CRAP - go back on VACATION Zero and keep your hands out of my pocket!
What did this fool think the job was like? Is he burning out already?
And I am just waiting for Mrs. O to tell us we can all eat cake. . . .
Nice Eh? you get a fine and a record because they stopped sending out a reminder so they can drive up income for the RMV. . . . and you get your car towed too. . .
You have been warned, so check your license before a cop does. . . .
It seems that a Mr. Hassan started a TV network after the September 11th attacks in order to show Muslims in a good light here in the US.
Over the weekend he was arrested for beheading his wife who had filed for divorce on January 6th. . .
I am guessing this guy was more talk than action when it comes to being a moderate. Sounds like he was more of a radical to me.
This also leads to the ultimate question of how many more radical Muslims are in this country? Why have they not adapted to the way of life here? This seems to be the ultimate failure to assimilate into our culture and our way of life here.
I don’t know many Muslims I admit, but those that I have met and a few I had become friends with do not seem to have any problem fitting in here. There are as American as I am, for the most part shared the same values and I am glad to know them. Incidents like this can set relations back a bit. . . .
My condolences go out to Aasiya Hassan’s children and family and I hope they punish this guy to the full extent of the law. Folks will go after this story because they are Muslim, I think we should make an example of him because he killed his wife, plane and simple. We cannot let someone that would do this to a woman who is trying to divorce him get away with it. EVERYONE needs to be clear that a woman (or man) has the right to say NO, to get a divorce, and not live in fear that the ex or soon to be ex is going to hunt them down.
Way to go Mr. Hassan, you have killed your wife, taken you kids mother from them, and managed to further damage relations between Muslims Americans and the rest of us all in one quick action. . . . People like you we do not need. I believe Muslims get a bad rap as it is due to the Radicals in the Mid East. Guys like this don't help.

I am amazed on how things change once they get in charge and realize they are screwed. They will blame Bush as usual but if you actually look at history and our poor immigration policy you will know both sides are responsible for this mess. Now the party that was for open borders and bragged about it is finally seeing the light and throwing the immigrants under the bus, but unlike the Republicans they are throwing the LEGAL immigrants out too!
A quick read on this CNN piece will show how now that the great plan to fix things didn't work (it won't and they know it) they want to stop immigrants from taking our jobs. . . . . They want a depression so they have the excuse to take more power.
WTF? Weren't these the same folks that use to say that all the immigrants did not matter because they took the jobs no American would take? That they made the US what it is? That we were all immigrants once?
This is great!
This would be a hell of a show watching the Dems throw more supporters under the bus with the the only problem being that they are destroying our country in the process. When they are done with the bail out they won't need to toss the immigrants out, they will be leaving in mass for a better place with money that is worth something - say Mexico. . . .
I feel like I am watching a shell game. They keep the sheep watching for the Bail Out check ( which cup is it under?) and while the sheep play that game they quietly take more and more power, more and more of our rights, more and more control of our lives and the sheep never notice. . . .
BAA Baa Baa
I love the term, it fits all those that have suddenly become proud to be American because they love Obama there god - Born Agan Americans - BAA
Well I hope no one is surprised here that we are supporting this woman who is now $50K in debt. She claimed she was not on welfare but the word is now out. . . . she is getting all kinds of aid in Bankrupt CA. . .
And she thinks she will get through school and get a job and all her problems will go away. Now? is she nuts? With the economy in the tank how can you think you will walk out of school and have a job pay you enough to support 14 kids? You can't and she knows it. She will stay on state aid. . . .
I don't know what we can do for welfare cases like this but I don't see why we the tax payer should get stuck with all her bills when she CHOSE to get pregnant and have all these kids.
Can the state put a lean on her pay so when she does get a job we get some money back? How about a lean on any house she may have or get? Maybe the laws can be set so if you have more kids while on welfare you don't get more money. Hell folks it's not like we don't know what causes kids now. . . .
I hear she is in hiding now. I was disgusted when I heard her interview and how she is so self centered. No one has the right to have kids and make someone else pay for them. You have every right to have kids, and you get the bills for them too.
The mentality of this woman is scary because she is not alone. We have a whole generation of folks that think the government owes them. NOT. Government money is not free you twit, it comes out of my pocket, and my families pocket. How about if I want to spend my money on my own kids?
I hope they can find some legal way to punish her and possibly anyone involved in this for the reckless way it was handled. This should never have happened on the tax payers dime. You want 14 kids, get a job that can pay for them.
Nope, she is unemployed, single mom with now 14 kids. Anyone else think we will be seeing these kids on state support for years to come and possibly in our courts at some point? These kids are already starting off behind the 8 ball (no pun intended) and she is not helping them. This woman must have some kind of mental issue or something but she sure as hell is not thinking of her kids best interest.
I don't get it but then I am not a liberal either. . .
What did they expect at a CATHOLIC school the Star of David?
And these folks are the teachers? That is scary.
More on this foolishness HERE
Currently folks are about evenly split on the bill. 52% for and 48% against/no opinion (38% are against and 10% no opinion)
I think those numbers would go up drastically if the news folks actually reported where the money was going. If people actually understood that this is a pay off to lobbyists like ACORN, and the start of Socialized Medicine (good luck getting care if you are old) and a whole list of other PORK!
Stand firm and VOTE NO! Conservatives need to stand together on this so we don't sell our Childcare's future for this failure! The first bail out did nothing. the second won't either. The more money the government prints to try to fix this the less the dollar is worth and the less the average American can buy. Inflation will take off and the Fed Reserve has no way to stop it now. . .
We are in for a hell of a ride folks. . . .
Update - Cost of the Stimulus Package - $30,000 of debt for every American . . . .
And no, this does not create anything, you make government jobs and pay those folks who spend the money. . . yes, but the money they spend was taken from me so I can't spend it. And we loose some to the Fed in handling. . . . It don't work folks. . ..

Ya, like he is in touch with reality. . . .
You twit! What about the folks at home that are loosing their homes and jobs? Can't feed the family? Live in a house with no heat, water or electricity because they can't pay the bills?
And you think we have money to give overseas?
Folks, here is my idea on a bail out. Before they get to OK one cent of the new bail out they need to stop all foreign aid and spend that money on US. We have problems hear to deal with first. Once we are back on track you can worry about them. If there is not a direct, imminent military reason to give them money they get nothing. Sorry about your starving folks but we have our own to feed first. . . .
I am going to have to look up how much we piss away on other countries for nothing. . .

And that middle class tax cut? Yep - all of about $500 bucks will be taken off your taxes over the next two years. . . so $500/104 is just under an additional $5 a week. Don't go spend it all in one place. . .
The good news on the bail out just keeps going don't it. . . .
in the three weeks he has been in office his approve has gone from 65% to 60% and dis-approval from 30% to 38% His approval index has gone from +28 to +19.
The shine is wearing off and faster than normal (so I hear). Note no one talks about a honey moon or his 100 days. Is that his fault? Maybe, could be the economy. I think it is Congresses fault most likely for being seen as playing games with PORK in the bail outs and all that crap. If Obama took a stand against the Dems in Congress and got rid of the Pork in the bill he would gain many points all around but he has not done that. . . Neither did Bush. Both of them seem to lack a good understanding of who's money they are spending. . . .
I expected a bit of flack but wow, I got the mother load.
Now I am not the best writer but I don’t know how I came across as supporting the nut. I am no English Major or Author like other bloggers. I am an Engineer who also holds degrees in Psychology and Business along with Engineering so I am not stupid.
Folks, I don’t support any attack on our POTUS no matter who he or she is and what party they are from. What I tried to say is that things are a mess and I can understand how that will push folks to do things that most would think are nuts. The only support I will give this man is that I hope he gets the help he needs. Now I have a warped sense of humor as anyone can tell you and that is where my comments looking at the time it took for the first attack on Obama came from. Folks will always strike out at what they see as the cause of the problem. If you have a problem with our government then they tend to go after the POTUS since he/she is in many ways the living symbol of our country. Anyway it is easy for someone to focus on one person (the POTUS) instead of a group like Congress.
For someone to reach the point of trying to get to Obama ( or Bush, or Ford, or Reagan, or . . . ) they have to be nuts. Something has pushed them over the edge. I had one comment saying it was because Obama was black. . . I have not seen anything to support this in the news YET.
What I do expect to see come out is that we are looking at a single guy. No big plot, no cover up. I expect he probably just lost his job, maybe his home or family over things. He is probably in debt up to his eyes and can’t pay it off. He is against the wall and lost everything in this downturn. He broke. He wants to get his life back and he thinks the government can do it for him so he goes to the head of the government – Obama at this point. Did he want to talk or hurt him? I don’t know.
Folks, If I was the nut case right winger that some of you commenter’s think I am then why did I publish your comments? Even the ones that swear at me? Not a good debate tactic, not a way to win your case but I still published them. I love a good argument between intelligent folks. It is a great way to learn how the other side sees things and sometimes you learn a bit. If you want an example then scroll down to the post where I comment on Obama backing Abortion Choice. Those comments got a bit intense but stay civil and respectful for both sides.
Where did we loose this ability to talk to each other with civility and respect? Maybe that is where we need to start to fix this country. I am an independent that support the Constitution that I see our government pissing on. (both parties by the way)
Folks have gone so far right and left that we got Obama for POTUS and have no good choice on the right either. To top it off both sides don’t want to talk or understand what the other side thinks or why. Any attempt at a discussion seems to degrade into name calling rather quickly. Folks on both sides get too into the emotions and too far away from the facts.
Lets look at Guns – the left wants control and the right does not. Folks, get rid of the emotion and look at the facts. The Second Amendment says “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” OK,
Well regulated – in that time period meant well trained, not controlled by the government
Militia – the militia is every able bodied American between 16 (or so) and 40 as defined by the Founding Fathers – remember they don’t like standing a army. The national guard did not exist for another 100 years or so so that is not what they meant
The People – In all the other parts of the bill of rights the People is you and me.
Keep and Bear – we can own and carry arms
OK, now lets look where they have taken away guns. To be fair we will look at countries like us – Say the UK and Australia. In both places as the guns went away crime went UP. It is actually safer in the US than in Briton when you look at crime per 100000 folks.
Lets look inside the US. In most major cities where guns are outlawed we have higher crime and violence. Areas that have more guns have been shown to have less crime per 100,000 folks again.
Gun control does not work. Education, and respect does. An armed society is a polite society because you know you have to back up your words and actions – possibly with your life – You are held responsible for your actions. That tends to get folks to keep a cooler head. Most gun owners I know and especially those that carry a gun with them go out of their way to avoid any kind of conflict. It just is not worth it.
So, I don’t know where I am going with this. You want to disagree with me – GREAT that is the point of debating any issue. If you keep it civil I may even learn a few things from you. If I am good you may learn from me too then we both win. If all you want to do is call me names then do us both a favor and go read someone else’s blog. . .
The idea is you pick the state and date the first shot gets fired. . . .
I have to laugh at this because part of me thinks we are no longer the Americans that will revolt, so this is ridiculous, we will quietly go under the control of the government and gladly become slaves for our Federal hand out.
On the other hand I laugh a gallows laugh thinking maybe we still do have a backbone and if so then a storm is coming, it is just a question of when and where. . . .
Either way we loose it is just a matter of how much and what we will have left for our children
Found this HERE
The BBC offers this advice for anyone
in Britain who is attacked on the street:
You are permitted to protect yourself with
a briefcase, a handbag, or keys. You should
shout “Call the Police” rather than “Help.”
Bystanders are not to help. They have been
taught to leave such matters to the professionals.
If you manage to knock your
attacker down, you must not hit him again
or you risk being charged with assault.
OK. . . I will not give up my right to defend myself or my family. I don't care about the muggers childhood or how bad off he is. I will take whatever action I need to so that I can make the attack on me or my family stop and I can get us to safety.
We have been warned by what is going on in the UK. The question is are we smart enough to learn from them. . . .
That didn't take long. . . I guess he is starting to get folks attention with all the spending and corruption he has brought to DC. Now that is impressive that he can bring more considering what was there to start with. . .
I wonder what the record is for time in office before someone gets caught or does something against a president? This would be what three weeks? I don't ever remember something that quick although I admit when that woman took a shot at Pres. Ford I don't know how long he had been in.
I hope Obama wakes up (I know he won't) that all them calls, emails and letters are real, folks don't want what he is selling now, they want what they thought he was selling in November. . .
Now the question is how long until he does something that he can be impeached for? I bet he already has since he is not protecting us or the Constitution from our enemies but no one will know unless he messes up so bad the press can't cover for him.
Socialism and National Health Care are not hope and sure are not good change. Just wait until they refuse to treat you or a family member due to the cost and your age. Just go die quietly like they do in Europe will ya? thanks. . .
And the pit gets dug deeper. . . .
And deeper - all I can say is Fairness Doctrine - which will kill free speech and put in place government control on the radio but will allow the left to continue control of the Main Stream Media. . . Oh ya, they get a pass, they don't have to give time for opposing views because we know they are right and any oppositions wrong . . . It's coming folks - say good by to what is left of the First Amendment. . .
One comment thought I was backing this poor soul who tried to get to Obama. No, that is not the point of my post. The point is that this poor guy has been driven to the point that he actually saw this as a reasonable response. How desperate do you need to get to get to where this guy is? I would NEVER condone any violence against anyone, POTUS or otherwise. What I am saying is Obama is out of touch, and the government is out of touch, has been for years. Normal folks don't see violence as an answer. that is the sign of someone that needs help and has been pushed to the point they see no other way to be heard. In a county as wealthy as ours this is a disgrace that anyone would get to this point.
As I have said before, Bush was not good, and Obama looks to be no better, we have just changed the fool in charge. Every election we give up more of our rightes, pay more in taxes, and become more of a wellfare state. We are still going the wrong way, just a new driver.

Now part of me is upset that she probably voted for Obama thinking he would give her these things. And in order to do that he needs to take money from me and give it to her. . . I am against that. It is not the governments job to re-distribute my money. I will do what I want with it and if I want to give it away that is my choice not his.
But part of me is also ashamed that anyone in our formally great country would have to humble themselves to the point of asking the President of the county for a shelter or a home in front of the national press. This use to be a great country where you could get a job that would let you raise a family. You may not be rich but you could afford a small home or apartment and a car or other way to get around and food on the table.
With what the Democrats and Republicans have done to us over the last 16 to 20 years has destroyed this country. We need a voter revolution to put real Conservatives back in office. Not Republicans, but REAL CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVES! I don't care about the party, I want someone to vote into office that understands the Constitution, and knows that they are there to serve us, not steal from us to buy votes for their next election.
I think we are quickly heading to a tipping point and once we pass it the only way back to the America that is great, and fare, and rewards hard work will be through a revolution and it won't be a peaceful one. If we fail, we are headed to becoming another depressed European country. . . . . We need to take back our country in the 2010 election, and block as much of Obama's plan as possible until then. Don't let them snow you, don't believe the crap they are handing us. This bail out is crap, Socialism is crap, just like Bush - Obama is stripping us of our rights and we are going the wrong way still - all we did was change the driver. . .
This has two down sides –
1 – This is a HUGE invasion of privacy. The state should not have any way of tracking a free people as they move about their daily business. This should not even be thought about in a free state! We are not criminals and I for one refuse to be treated like one by our good Governor. I will remember this at election time.
2 – This WILL be abused. First they will use it to tax us, next comes speeding tickets then who knows what. The state can not be trusted with this kind of power over a free people.
This is insane! It shows how much our government here in MA hates us for our freedom. If this passes we will all be on a leash with Big Brother on the other end. . . freedom will be gone. It is not much different from being asked for your papers when you drive out of town and having to tell them where you are going, when you will be there and when you will get back.
If this ever see the light of day we should all be VERY scared as to where this state and country are going. . . even more than we are now. . .
And most of all - Remember Who wanted this when he comes up for election in 2010. . .
If you live in MA, write your reps and tell them where they can put this bill if it ever comes to light. . . .
They are being told by conservative action committee that they will work to get them ousted in the next elections by reminding folks they voted for this mess. GOOD. Conservatives need to take this party back from the liberals in the Republican party and go back to their roots.
What the heck, if they really think it will work then they should not have any problem voting for it and being proud of it at election time. Of course if they know this is just a bunch of PORK that will fail then they know it will hurt them in the next election so they will cry about this. . . . Interesting. Maybe the reason they are pushing so fast is they know this is crap and they know we are finding out about it. The only hope is to pass it before to many of us know what is up.
Obama is looking to do a hell of a lot of damage to us in the next two years. We need to stop anything we can of his and have the conservatives take back Congress in 2010. The only way to stop Obama now is to have the Republicans stand firm. That or we are looking at much messier ways that I don't want to think about (see 1861)
Obama will rush things, and cry panic! Look how many pages there are to this bail out bill to bury thing in. No one has read it all yet they rush to vote on it. Sounds like they are not doing due diligence for us the people in their haste but that is the idea I think. He needs us to run and not look at what he is doing. If folks looked at things they may stop him. Hell, some economists are already saying there should be the start of a turn around the middle of this year WITHOUT the bail out money. . .. Hmmmm. . . . something to think on. But then Obama does not get to pay off his friends and secure his position. The left was afraid of Bush not stepping down at the end of his term. Funny that most folks I know right and left said they would take up arms if needed to remove him but nothing happened, Bush stepped down as he was supposed to - no muss no fuss. I wonder if the left will help us insure Obama steps down peaceably when the time comes or are they trying to put him in forever. . . .
Damn you know things are bad when you start to look back at the Clinton years as fond memories. . ..
It is official - the oldest needs braces. . . - OUCH
and the joke my company calls dental insurance will cover $1500 lifetime max. . . . better than nothing but only 20% or so of what this will cost. . . never mind anything else that comes up like if any teeth need to be pulled.
What a racket. . . .
Well, just another happy day as a parent. . . . Sure, like I have money left after the government and the mortgage. . . now if I can just get the kids to stop eating everything will be fine. Food - it is an addiction really. . . .
They are playing games with the numbers to make it look worse than it is so they can force this crap through. Then we will be just another F'd up European Socialist country going down the tubes and our kids and grand kids will be paying for it.
VOTE NO!- write your congresscritter if he/she will listen to you and tell them!
If this goes through we will be the USSA. . .

President Obama's economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday.
CBO, the official scorekeepers for legislation, said the House and Senate bills will help in the short term but result in so much government debt that within a few years they would crowd out private investment, actually leading to a lower Gross Domestic Product over the next 10 years than if the government had done nothing.

It is a bit better, but I still miss him and already I can't count the times that I wish he was hear to discuss things with before I made a decision. He seemed to have done or read about almost everything and was a great one to get a second opinion on things from.
Miss ya Dad . . .

Three Republican RINOs have jumped ship and backed it. I hope the people they represent will send them a letter to let them know how wrong they are to vote for this bill.
This can still be stopped if the Republicans hold the line. It may pass but it should not get one Rep. vote so when it blows up it can take the Democrats with it.
Don't let them crash our economy and the value of the dollar. This pork filled spending package will kill us since they don't have the money, they will be printing it to do this. The more they print the less it is worth. Soon we will need a wheel barrle full of money to get a loaf of bread folks. . ..

If you spent $1 million a day since Christ was born you would not have spent $1 trillion dollars yet. . .
That blows my mind. . .
365X2009 and you get $733285 million. . . just over 3/4 of the way to the Trillion they want to spend on PORK
How out of touch can he be? I guess we will find out.
To those on both sides that are voting against the PORK and trying to actully fix our country, Stand Strong! Don't pass this pile of crap and cripple us!
Obama said "he'd rather do what's right and serve one term than just do what's politically good and be a mediocre president and get to serve two terms,". . .. I am not sure the country can survive one term of this "hope and change"
Stop the PORK and stop the business as usual in DC. We were told there would be change, I guess we just didn't realize that "Change" meant 4 more years of the Clinton staff in the White House

They have a great article on how the Brady Campaign against Guns giver Vermont an F for lax gun laws but can't explain how that is bad when they had only 12 murders in the whole state last year. . . and more
From CNN HERE
Looks like we have an interesting storm brewing and how the Fed acts may make a huge difference as to if this ends well for all of us or even any of us . . . .
On one side we have a number of states (and the number is growing) telling the Fed to back off, you have overstepped your Constitutional bounds. Of course the Fed has been overstepping for years but hey, at least the states are starting to push back - er, well, talk about pushing back anyway. . .
Add to this that the folks in DC are getting swamped with calls from Pissed Off Voters (pov's) that don't like the bail out, don't like the corruption Obama has already let into his administration, and don't like where we are going. . . Does anyone know if this is some kind of record or not? What is it, 2 maybe 3 weeks since he got into power and he is already showing that his idea of Hope and Change is a power grab for himself?
This is getting worse and worse ever time I listen to the news, or read the net. . .
And the answer from DC? They tell us to shut up and do what we tell you! They then lie about the economy, job loss (500 MILLION a month? where did that come from?), and try to panic us into giving them what they want. Is this how it all started in 1860-61? Note, current population of the USA - 305,754,459 estimated. I guess we will all be out of work by the end of the month. . ..
Update - Now Obama is giving up on Hope and Change and TELLING Congress to do what he tells them because he won. . . . (More on that HERE) Um, I call Bull Shit - Congress is not supposed to rubber stamp the actions of Obama, Bush, or any other president, they are there to be a check on his power! They are doing that by calling him on all the pork in this bill and the crap his and the Dems are pulling.
Congress - Stay strong and fight them! They have more PORK in this bail out than we can ever pay off and they stand there and tell us to our face there is NO pork in this bill. How stupid do you think we are? (very, I know) Obama is going for the 'Spend our way out' of this answer which we know from running our own home budgets does not work. He is also saying he is giving us change by going away from Reaganomics - ya right- we have not followed Reagan's way of running the economy in years. If we would go back that is change.
Obama is giving us more of the Tax and spend crap that we had with Clinton and Bush. The only change here is that he is more open in bringing corruption into his cabinet. . ..
Oh and for the record we lost 522 THOUSAND jobs last month . . . so Nancy is off by a factor of 1000 for those that are counting. Why are they trying to spin things to panic us? Who gains from that?
Keep questioning everything the government does, because it is not acting in our best interest

Australia has taken all the guns just like the UK did, so they are safer there right Mrs. Brady?
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.
Yep, that is what I want for my country. . .
Total overload. I am a newbie at this so I guess it will take practice but man, so much info and fun packed into one hour. . . I could barely handle it. . . . We will try again next week. If you are going to overload on input may as well have fun when you do it!

Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., has introduced to the House of Representatives a new bill, H.R. 645, calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations.
Why? What legal reason would you EVER have to corral CIVILIANS on a military installation? Sounds like someone is planing for some civil unrest? I wonder if they realize what they are doing is spooking folks to the point they may get removed from office the hard way????
And people wonder why patriots get nervous about gun bans and such. . . .
You sheep really need to wake up or you will become the slaves of the government. Is the Obama Kool Aid really worth that? What happened to America, land of the free and home of the brave???
If Obama wants to show that he really is not after us then he should get this squashed quick. He won't though. . . .
I wonder if he is getting the message that folks are watching him and we can tell when he breaks more of his promises. Not that I thought he would keep any of them but then I didn't drink the Kool Aid either and vote for this fool. . . .
Lets hope the Republicans keep their new backbone and try to save some of our money. . . since they don't seem to want to stop any of his appointments. . .
Nice to see how they are running interference on the ball out bull that Obama is trying to sell. . .
DO they want to put us into a depression? How can you say this is a bail out when only 10% of the cash goes to make jobs and the rest is pay off to the unions and such that voted for him. . . .
What a sack of CRAP
Anyone see a pattern here? Ain't it nice that they get off were as if you or I pulled this crap we would be in jail. . .
Also, where is the media on this? They would be looking to hang Bush from the nearest tree over all this but Obama gets a pass? WTF?
Talk about opening a can of worms without thinking. . . . If this idiot somehow gets this to pass in court (it shouldn't) then can you imagine how much it will cost the state of MA if all the folks that buy things here turn around and say we don't have to pay Mass tax, only our states tax that you have to send to them. . .
This is a bunch of crap only a liberal like Deval could come up with. Wasting money on a losing court case when we can't meet the budget as it is. . . ya good idea. . .
Got my new belt last night. . . Now with a bit of luck and if I can study enough I may be able to go for my first degree black next spring!

On the bad news front it looks like the nice folks that moved into the neighborhood want us closed down permanently. I bet they have been waiting for a shot at this for a long time. I don’t think they can legally do it but you never know in Mass. . .
I still want to know how they can justify this crap. You move into my town and now I am supposed to change everything to make you happy? WTF?
Folks, you bought your house fully knowing there is a gun club near it – If you didn’t then go sue your Realtor as the gun club has been there since the 1920’s or so, long before your house was . . . How they hell you get any rights to shut it down is beyond me. You don’t like the club well no one made you buy the house there. Move. You came second, deal with it.
In a nutshell they want damages for trespass, assault and nuisance. They also want an injunction to keep us closed. I want to know, can members of the club sue them for the loss of range time? Wouldn’t that be great? You pay for a membership but you can’t use it because these folks are preventing it. I would love to see them (the neighbors) have to pay us back our dues since the membership is useless because of their actions. . . . . . I know, but it is a nice dream. Since this is MA these people may actually win no matter what the law is so I guess I need to start looking for another range to use this summer. . .
And for the record I still have not heard of any proof that any of the bullets they claim stuck house came from the club. For all we know folks are out in the woods shooting that should not be and they hit the house if in fact any really were hit.
They claim to have the bullet, and I believe the one guy using that size gun offered to have it tested and then all that went quiet. Maybe they know the bullet did not come from the club . . .
We will see. . . .
It is a great account of how folks are in trouble, FEMA is no where to be seen and the media is also no place to be seen. . . . We can't tell people that Obama is not helping out in Kentucky!
Our fellow Americans are in need. Obama where are the Feds? what is the problem, not enough Democrats there or is it that there are too many white folks as some folks are starting to ask.. . . . .
Please, I really want to know why Katrina got so much bad press for the Feds and no one is talking about this. Now not as many people are involved this time but folks are still dying, it is over a great area, and no one is saying a thing.
Must be nice to still have the media running cover for you because if this happened on Bush's watch they would be screaming by now. . . .
only about 12% of the bail out money will go to job creation . . .
Congress gives itself $93K more petty cash to each member. . . . Ya, that will create jobs. . .
To the Republicans - If you really want to be seen as conservatives and have any chance in 2010 then you need to do everything you can to kill this bill or at least cut out all but that 12% that actually creates jobs. . .
Taking our money to make jobs generates about $1 of jobs for each $1 you take.
Tax cuts have been shown to create $3 in jobs for each $1 you cut. . . . you figure it out
Government revenue has also been shown to go up when taxes go down. . . .
Seems like this winter the folks in Boston did not get the relief they normally see over the winter. Shooting and murders are up at the summer levels.
No one in Boston wants to admit the obvious - gun laws don't work. The city is broken.
You want to fix this? You need to get jobs into the city, stop taxing businesses out of Boston. You need to get Parents involved in their kids lives. You need to give the kids someplace to go that is save where they can hang out without being chased by the cops. . .
Folk brag about how liberal and educated they are in Boston. . . well it does not seem to be working. Companies are leaving Boston and MA because it is too expensive. The middle class is leaving Boston due to the cost of living. There are shootings every few nights in the city where the people are disarmed and can't do anything to take back their neighborhoods from the gangs.
MA is not a place to envy, it is a place to survive long enough to get out of. . . .
Now we are dumb here (look who we keep voting for) but this is a bit nuts. . . what ever happened to parenting? Every day we seem to be giving up more of our rights as parents to the state. . . .
Folks WTF? Wake up. Don't the cops have more important things to do than check for helmets on the slopes? This is like the seat belt law. You are too dumb to know when you need to use a seat belt so we will make it the law.
This state takes Nannyhood to a new level ever day. You would think they would have better things to do with their time like FIX THE ECONOMY or our insane CRIME RATES IN BOSTON but no, we need to deal with kids sleding. . . .
Is it any wonder this state is a mess?
Just another Mass Moment brought to you by the Dems in charge - what, you want us to actually fix something?
