MY APOLOGY

For the past two plus years I have posted over 359 articles on this blog. I have been extremely disappointed in the lack of comments to evaluate if my work is just wasted effort or appreciated. I do receive some feedback from my followers on Facebook and my steady comments from my Australian friend, Baxter Henderson.

For those who subscribe, follow my articles on Facebook and Twitter or the over 25,000 people who have just stumbled across them searching the web, thank you deeply. Just knowing that someone outside of my family actually reads my work is very rewarding.

My intent in beginning this blog was to share my knowledge, experience and 82 years of life in the greatest country on earth. I honestly named the blog to make sure everyone understood my views were “conservative” and I feel I have proven myself to abhor our current President and the immovable democrats that reside in Congress. I doubt that anyone who has read my articles would argue that I feel Obama and his army of mercenaries are destroying our Republic form of government.

Now I feel obligated to apologize to Mr. Obama, the democratic party and the main stream media that blindly supports their socialists agenda. One thing is certain, the media should have an award for the imbecile who best meets the criteria of twisting, omitting and publishing the best propaganda of the year.

These people have proven me wrong for not recognizing they have achieved success far beyond anything I have witnessed in my lifetime. They have done this so well I feel ashamed for not giving them credit for their success long before now.

I have coined a new word to allow me to praise their performance, “Lieability”. They have proven that they can face the public with a straight face, smile and distort anything better than anyone in the history of the world. Our President’s nose would make Pinocchio blush if the fairy tale was fact. There is no one in history that would be a distant second. Well maybe Bill Clinton would make honorable mention in history books.

Awarding a “Lieability” statuette to a Senator would be a real dilemma as Reid, Kerry or Durbin would be at best a three-way tie. Receiving the award winner for the House of Representatives would be a cake walk for Queen Nancy Polosi. A Lieability award for just one media individual would be impossible but MSNBC would win hands down for the network category, closely followed by NBC and CNN.  

I fully accept criticism for my oversight in not giving these Socialist credit for being the worlds best at something. I do feel that other conservative bloggers, journalists, commentators, writers and the republican leaders in Congress have been remiss in not recognizing the “Lieability” of these individuals and organizations.

Shame on you Conservatives everywhere, give these people credit where credit is due. I would say call a spade a spade but I would be chastised for being a racist.

THE GAME OF CHICKEN!

The phrase game of chicken is used as a metaphor for a situation where two parties engage in a showdown where they have nothing to gain and only pride stops them from backing down.

When I was a boy over 70 years ago I was introduced to the game of chicken. With little money for entertainment the neighborhood children dreamed up things to entertain each other. This was a time when we had parents that made sure we did not annoy other people, destroy their property or maim and kill them like we read about in Chicago and other Democratic inner city bastions.

Our juvenile game of chicken was for two of us to go to opposite ends of the dirt street, mount our bicycles and peddle as fast as possible towards each other. The one who swerved away to avoid a head on collision was declared the “Chicken” and shunned by the other kids watching. Obviously if one did not chicken out you had two banged up bicycles and two kids rewarded with peer esteem and the need for bandages and bike repair. Both usually administered by the other kids.

Wikipedia describes the adult version as being; “Two drivers of cars on a single lane bridge from opposite directions. The first to swerve away yields the bridge to the other. If neither player swerves, the result is a costly deadlock in the middle of the bridge, or a potentially fatal head-on collision. It is presumed that the best thing for each driver is to stay straight while the other swerves (since the other is the “chicken” while a crash is avoided). Additionally, a crash is presumed to be the worst outcome for both players. This yields a situation where each player, in attempting to secure his best outcome, risks the worst.”

We watched President Kennedy win a game of Chicken with the Russians in Cuba and win. We watched Lyndon Johnson lose a game of Chicken with the Vietnamese. Reagan won again over the Russians at the Berlin wall. Bush #1 and #2 believe they won in Iraq. It is a no brainer that Bush #2 and Obama will lose in Afghanistan as political wars are not winnable.   

We are now watching a President who was born and bred to take the game of “CHICKEN” to a new level. He has decided to divide America into two teams and arm one team with a decided advantage. All of the government resources will be provided to one team and the other team will only have God and each other to play the game.

We now have the Blue States on one end of the bridge and the Red States on the other end preparing for a for a Civil war version of the Chicken game. Leaders Obama, Polosi and Reed for the Blue States and Boehner and Mitchell representing only some of the Red States. 

Obama has proved that he can rally 95% of the African-Americans, 98% of the academic leaders, 100% of the dead, and a majority of women and illegal aliens into a fighting force as he won re-election. Fraud could have helped but as he controls the Justice Department and we will never know.

The Red State team is not well-organized and proved that during the last election

One thing in this game of Chicken that is different is who will be hurt the most when we have a head on collision that must happen someday. America will obviously lose this game of Chicken as no other country is involved. There can’t be a winner, as regardless of the outcome, we will be much weaker both militarily and financially.

The real losers will be the youth, the women and the aliens. The dead have nothing to lose and the politicians will eventually be reduced in rank to just ordinary Americans like they were in the past.

God help the young Americans, some unborn, in finding a way to pay for this political ego trip that is so totally avoidable if we just had leaders in Washington rather that con men. God bless Ronald Reagan, our last American Leader. I feel pretty sure that Reagan and Mickey Mouse’s vote in California last November were for Obama.

I certainly hope that the voters, who wanted to see this “Chicken Train Wreck” happen, will be happy working for the Chinese. Unless common sense is applied soon, they will own all of our assets eventually.

OBAMA TAX PLANS EXPLAINED – EVEN BIDEN CAN UNDERSTAND!

Dr. David R. Kamerschen, Professor of Economics at the University of Georgia found a unique way to explain Obama’s Progressive tax plan. This should make it rather easy for a moron to understand his plan to tax the so called rich. The author’s analysis also includes the probable insurrection that Obama seem hell bent on creating by urging Americans to hate each other. You need to deeply read what the author predicts could happen. I have paraphrased some of the terms to reflect comparisons.

Ten men go to the bar every day to drink some beer and the tab always ends up to be $100. If they paid the tab the way they paid their taxes it would be like this:

Four of the men would pay nothing.

Fifth man would pay $1.

Sixth man would pay $3.

Seventh man would pay $7.

Eighth man would pay $12.

Ninth man would pay $18.

Tenth man would pay $59 (This is Obama’s mission to tax the richest American only)

The majority voted to accept this plan.

This was a daily event and it was peaceful until one day the owner of the bar interfered with their plan. He said “Since you are all such good customers, I’m going to reduce your daily tab by $20. Drinks will now only be $80 a day.” 

The group still voted to pay their bill the way they paid their taxes. The first four would be unaffected but how would the other six pay the bill. They argued about how to divide the $20 discount. It was quickly realized that $20 divided by 6 would be $3.3333. If this was subtracted equally the fifth and sixth man would end up being paid to drink their beer.

The bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s portion by roughly the same amount and he proposed the following plan:

Five men would now drink free.

Sixth man would pay $2 instead of $3 (33% reduction).

Seventh man would pay $5 instead of $7 (28% reduction).

Eighth man would now pay $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).

Ninth man would now pay $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).

Tenth man would now pay $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six who had been paying was better off and the first four continued to drink free. When they stepped outside they decided to compare their savings. The sixth man said I only got $1 of the $20 savings and the tenth man got $10. The fifth man said I only got $1 and he got ten times what I got. The seventh man said why should he get $10 when I only got $2, the wealthy always get the tax breaks. “Wait a minute shouted the first four men in unison, we didn’t get anything. The system always exploits the poor.

The first nine men then surrounded the tenth man and beat him up. The next day the tenth man didn’t show up at the bar, so the other nine drank their usual beers. When presented the tab they suddenly discovered they did not even have half enough money to pay the tab.

This is a factual example of our regressive tax system in America. People who pay the highest taxes always benefit more from a tax reduction. When Obama, his Progressive Congress and his army of CZAR’s tax any American too much and create class warfare attacks on the wealthy to incite violence, they might start drinking their beer overseas. I would.

Dr. Kamerschen added, “For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.”

Except for Biden, Polosi, Reed, Congressional democrats, Obama’s Cabinet, his Czars and four Supreme Court Justices most Americans like freedom from oppression. That is oppression from our own government. Obama and Soros know exactly what they are doing to destroy our Republic form of government.

OBAMA – HIS PLANS FOR THE FUTURE!

I normally do not post more than one article each day. When you read this I hope you understand why I poste two articles today. CB

This article by Steve McCann was sent to me by Dr. Forrest, a great friend. I have no idea who Steve McCann is but his facts are indisputable. This will hopefully be shared with every American possible. I was asked to forward the message but I chose to post it on this blog. I ask everyone who reads this to forward and share it.  C Brewer

 Obama’s Second Term Transformation Plans 

The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860.This statement is not hyperbole. If Barack Obama is re-elected the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind. 

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress. That is why his re-election team is virtually ignoring the plight of incumbent or prospective Democratic Party office holders. 

 The most significant accomplishment of Obama’s first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency.

During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.

For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational in 2014.

The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation’s financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled Barack Obama and his radical associates.

Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.

None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.

It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.

Additionally, Barack Obama knows after his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.

The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack Obama and his fellow leftists.

The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, once re-elected, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous re-election tactics, would not only threaten government shutdowns but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.

Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. In a second term the arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions will become more blatant as he will not have to be concerned with re-election.

Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.

Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated. The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.

The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity would assume the reins of power. However, knowing that was not always possible, they dispersed power over three distinct and independent branches as a check on each other.

What they could not imagine is the surrender and abdication of its constitutional duty by the preeminent governmental branch, the Congress, to a chief executive devoid of any character or integrity coupled with a judiciary essentially powerless to enforce the law when the chief executive ignores them

Conservatives, Libertarians, the Republican Party and Mitt Romney must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal. All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.

BOEHNER KICKED THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD

Although it was no surprise to me, John Boehner, folded like a marshmallow with Obama’s threat. The Republicans are as leaderless in Congress as Obama is with freedom loving Americans.

This is just one more reason that if we can’t get rid of all of them we are doomed. With his usual scowling face this morning, Harry “NO” Reid scolded all new Republicans that they just do not understand that Congress only functions with compromise. His leadership in the Senate has not produced a budget in over 900 days. One of Congress’s primary responsibilities is a common sense budget. He has no idea what compromise consists of.

What Mr. Reid failed to explain to the people is that compromise must be whatever he, Nancy Pelosi and Obama want. Any attempt to modify their plan is a racial attack on the President and will eliminate our middle class. So far they have done more damage to the middle class than the last ten Presidents combined.

I would really like for them to explain why my retirement savings have been reduced by 30+% in just the last three years. My insurance has increased about the same 30%. My utilities have increased about 30%. My gasoline has increased about 30%. I can go on and on as I can think of nothing that has become cheaper.

I suppose I am one of the lucky people, in their mind. I am retired and have supplemental income from a business I helped create over 20 years ago. We got no government loans to start the business and we have some 30 people who depend on the business to survive. Since Obama was elected our profits have fallen 59%. If the trend continues we will reach the non-profit status in the near future. Who cares if 30 people are added to the unemployed and the taxes they now pay disappear.

Stop and add up the positives and negatives of my position and the future is not so positive. If the trends stay on the current paths I guess my wife and I could try to go back to work. I doubt we could ever find a job. The unemployment in my county is currently over 15%.

There is another option the Democrats continue to insist is humane; we could draw unemployment as it would be more than our Social Security and probably tax-free? 

Our only hope is that a leader can be found that is unconcerned about re-election and shuts the government down, including Congress, and start over. The 99% may smell, steal, destroy and jump off a cliff. What they fail to recognize is that us common folks have the military on our side when they start an insurrection.

How Rotten Can it Get

The following is just the facts folks. These progressives must think that the American people are all stupid. One of these days the democrats that have been duped into their socialist trap will awake to see that they have been had. I hope. While we try to tell the world what not to do to their people like Obama and Clinton have done this weekend and at the same time they are planning to control all of the news by controlling talk radio, conservative TV and manipulate the internet. 

Please pass this on to as many as possible before they can deny the plot.  C Brewer

Internet Kill Switch – Never Let a Crisis Go to Waste: Egypt Today, USA Tomorrow

Posted By Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King On January 30, 2011 @ 12:03 pm In Culture, News, Politics, Regulation, Technology | 31 Comments

Our Capitol Hill Insider Elizabeth Letchworth is keeping us up to date with Congress’ attempts to give the President an Internet kill switch.  Tea Party Nation’s Judson Phillips is warning against it.  From the Honorable Elizabeth Letchworth of GradeGov.com [1]:

“The Senate Leader introduced this bill as a placeholder for the 112th Congress. He wants to use it to push Judiciary, Commerce, and Homeland Security committees to write cyber security legislation. Don’t be surprised if the Senate has a vote on this soon to show that cyber security is important to Congress, especially given the Egypt situation and the closing down of the internet. As always, the devil is in the details and S. 21 is vague to say the least.”

In an effort to resolve the rules impasse that stalled the opening day house-keeping organizational resolutions in the U.S. Senate, the two Senate leaders engaged in a colloquy (formal discussion or conference) on Jan. 27, 2011. In this colloquy, the two leaders conceded the following:

Senator McConnell:

“And, in my Caucus, I have many Senators who have complained that the Majority Leader has abused his ability to “fill the amendment” tree, preventing Senators from offering and debating amendments that they believe are important, especially when a matter has not gone through committee or cloture is filed too quickly.”

Senator Reid:

 “As we have discussed, in the interests of comity and more open process in the Senate, we have agreed that we should use these procedural options of filling the amendment tree and filibustering the motion to proceed infrequently.  And, we’ll do our best to ensure that other Members of our caucuses respect this colloquy, as well.”

It is with this colloquy in mind that the Senate could see more bills introduced that will have the same bland tone as was included in the text of S. 21. The text states the obvious, outlines a serious national problem, but doesn’t address any resolution to that problem.

STATE OF WHICH UNION??

 

We have not had just one American “Union” in my 80 years, today we have at least three; “republican”, “democrat” and whatever “independent” means. To me there is only two kinds of true Americans, “conservatives” or “liberals” and the bunch in between the two who are  not yet adults or nitwits. Obama’s perception of a union is a group that pressures our businesses and government to create a power that will destroy the free enterprise system that has made America a world leader. Watch his gift of General Motors to the UAW end up in flames.

Watching our State of the Union (SOTU) messages for the past 65 years has been a mirror image of how far American politics has denigrated. The first one I remember was a radio address in 1945 that inspired all Americans to stay together and win WW11. Most of our earlier Presidents utilized the SOTU to rally the people to support truly bi-partisan issues to advance America’s future. Sadly, all we have seen for the past several years is partisan pep-rallies to keep the people divided as far as possible politically for the purpose of getting what ever party is in power re-elected.

The past three SOTU events, including Tuesday night, have been a continuation of Obama’s only real talent, “Snake Oil Salesman”; these events provide him the maximum exposure to keep the people divided as far as possible. We watch him every day throwing spears and threats at everyone who has a dissenting view. He uses any crisis available as ammunition to keep us divided and hide behind. His false sincerity and somber facial expressions make him a better actor than ever went to Hollywood. His only weakness is not having the ability to do his act impromptu like Clinton. He probably has to use the teleprompter to talk to his children.

The pep-rally in Arizona recently is a perfect example of using any tragedy to sell something. Using the attempted killing of a democratic Representative, to advance his Socialistic goals is sick. The Presidency has provided him the world stage and the bully pulpit capability to destroy our world leadership positions and reduce our freedoms.

Encouraged by the tree huggers, Hollywood’s elite, OPEC and China, he is nearing the power position to increase our buyer nation status by eliminating more of our industrial base. The fastest way to do this is by regulations, and boy does he know how. He has proved that he has the power to ignore Congress to get his way. Allowing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to increase regulations and give Congress the finger, is a perfect example of the power imbalance. It also shows how our Congress is totally incapable of any control over the Executive Branch of our government.

The demoncrats (not misspelled accidently) sit up like a lap dog and do whatever the “King” desires. Reid, Polosi, Durban and Kerry is just some of his hit-men. All he has to do for the rest of them is throw them a biscuit in the form of a bridge, airport, Medicade money or a future place in government power. Just watch when the wave of Senators who just left or the ones who have announced they will leave in 2012, end up as Ambassadors or in well connected government positions. Most of the others will end up as lobbyist sucking on the government teat.

The republicans have been in retreat for so long they need to use the “Greatest Italian Military Invention”, back up lights for tanks, to see where they are going. They get the power back, make rabid speeches, promise to stop the run-away-train, then they fold up when they are pressed into making critical decisions. When they do shut down the government the “demons” always make them look like Simon Lagree attacking orphans and widows. How many cycles do we have to watch for them to admit they have no clue how to match the clever clandestine ability of the demoncrats to use power. One thing the republicans do that is smarter than the “demons” is bypassing the positions of power in government and go directly to consulting and lobbying. The work is easier and the money comes faster and better.  

The only hope we have to stop all of the Washington D.C. spending is for John Bohner to have the courage to stand up and stop it now. He appears to be an honorable man and hopefully a man of his word. Next the entire republican House must get committed and operate as they promised. If they fold this time we need to throw them all out in 2012 and elect at least 537 new people. This is the only way that politics will again be a public service rather than an occupation.
