If you are all extremely angry, and disappointed, not to say the least, FRUSTRATED with our government ....
WELL, the basic problem which I've stated many times before, REMAINS:
"No one in their right mind, or worth their salt wants to work in the corrupt cesspool of politics....even if they had tons of money; much less those that have to "prostitute" themselves for it!
So...sure....lets find a sharp person who has solid principles and is willing to face insane scrutiny of themselves and their family!"
Even if we could find one ...or even a few of them....WE NEED A MAJORITY TO GET ANYTHING ACCOMPLISHED....and remove (bypass) the corrupt old style politicans that have plagued our broken system.

Yeah, mostly those who are too busy with their personal lives; while 47% pay no income taxes and most enjoy relying on their handouts & entitlements. Just look, over 40~% still support Obama along with his mainstream media and most of the liberal-oriented Hollywood celebrities!!
My favorite quote describes it perfectly: "The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency."

So, there we more good "flush" and we will be "down the toilet";

Sure....that is a HARSH comment!! But, it unfortunately describes much of our current situation!

The Republicans have apparently chosen to put all their "eggs" into the sole effort called the "Ryan Plan"....the only "plan" out of the gate !!!
Stupid?? Yes, even early signs of election backfiring has shown itself in the NY26 upset !! It is obvious this plan needs work, further inputs and better explanations.

The Democrats, however, simply choose to ignore everything and won't even make an effort to put forth their own "plan" !!!?? Chickenshit?? You bet....they'd rather just beat up on anyone "opening their mouth" with real ideas!! Shrewd?...maybe.
I say just "Chickenshit" !!


Ryan's Plan probs:
One of the dissident Republicans was Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who objects that Ryan's plan — which would not balance the budget for decades — is not a serious response to fiscal challenges facing the country.
Other opposition:
Furthermore, it does not "reform" or "improve" Medicare. The congressman's voucher scheme ...prepares the way for the popular and necessary program's elimination in any form that Americans have understood or appreciated it. Instead of steering public funds toward the care of the elderly, the Ryan plan steers the elderly — via vouchers — into the clutches of the for-profit insurance companies that make their money by denying care to the sick, the disabled and the vulnerable elderly. At best, this plan would need a "transition" period to give seniors a "choice" between the standard Medicare and the New Voucher see if it even works right!!
Simply put....Ryan's Plan needs serious WORK

Washington Democrats are in the midst of a nervous breakdown, turning on each other publicly as Americans cope with painfully high unemployment and record debt. Desperate to avoid being held accountable for their job-killing policies,

Now, with no jobs plan and no budget in sight, Washington Democrats’ infighting has broken out into public view. Things have gotten so out of hand that Democratic lawmakers are questioning the effectiveness of their trillion-dollar ‘stimulus,’ with one lawmaker dismissing it as a “fantasy jobs” plan and another accusing the White House of timing its implementation to the 2012 election.

WHAT'S NEXT ?? ..... More compromise ?

John Ransom, a Townhall columnist recently said in reference to the budget cutting compromise:
"That’s the way our system was designed; for gradual change, not revolution. For those who feel the revolution has been betrayed somehow, I caution that revolutions in American politics are slow, fitful things that are evolutionary not revolutionary."
As he goes on to admit "For the first time in 46 years Congress has actually reduced the level of spending year-over-year. Without voters making it absolutely clear in townhall meetings, rallies and protests that they are taxed enough already, we’d be looking at higher spending most certainly."

So, we should be satisfied....Right ??

Well, this means that, at that rate .....if we had another 46 years, I can assume we would get another similar cut?? Hmmm?? Think about that!!??

Erik Erickson of Redstate explains: "the GOP is getting $38.5 billion in total cuts for the year. Additionally, of the $38.5 billion in cuts, several folks on the Hill tell me that $12 billion is from readjusting baselines in the budget and are mostly smoke."

But we’ll take it, I guess??

........"For perspective, the federal government spends $10.46 billion a day.
The Democrats and Republicans have now come together to cut out just under 4 days worth of spending out of 365 days."

He goes on to say:
...."For a year now the Republicans and Democrats have told us we have serious problems and need serious solutions. They’ve told us we have a serious budget deficit crisis.
However, on Friday night the two parties came together and decided the crisis they’ve been telling us about really isn’t worth dealing with." ......certainly not now anyway !!!

So, WHEN, I ask ????

Lorita Doan another Townhall columnist had it right when she said "Balancing the federal budget will require deep cuts to non-performing programs and will require changes to the existing budgeting process in future years." ......

so again, I ask.....WHEN do we do this ???

Allowing "our system" to work its way through whatever gradual change some think is acceptable is simply NOT AN OPTION !!!

April 11, 2011 | Posted by Speaker Boehner's Press Office:

This week, the House will vote on House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) FY 2012 budget: The Path to Prosperity. In USA Today, Speaker Boehner says The Path to Prosperity “is a powerful blueprint for economic growth and fiscal responsibility that will help our economy get back to creating jobs, stop Washington from spending money we don't have, and lift the crushing burden of debt that threatens our children and grandchildren.” And in the Weekly Republican Address, Chairman Ryan explains how “this budget is a jobs budget.”

And so, the rhetoric continues.....but what do we really know now?

Well, for starters, we know that the Dems still think "cutting" is not spending (or "investing") at the same increased rate that they have been; and that its still OK for wage earners (especially wealthy ones, who work harder) to pay for the needs of those who do not; and that Repubs can be made to "blink" when the time comes.
We've also come to understand that both political parties....especially the leaderships, still practice the age-old art of SELF-PRESERVATION "POLITICS" in that RE-ELECTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN STANDING FOR ANY REAL PRINCIPLES or representing "WE THE PEOPLE"....BECAUSE THAT'S THE WASHINGTON WAY!

The PLAN !!!

Barrack Hussein Obama.....the man acting as our President!!

He knows exactly what he's doing.

He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure through economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

This so-called “peace president” starts wars without declaration.
The TSA "gropes and scans" while local agriculture is threatened.
Mandates, regulations and bailouts never seem to end while the Fed prints, and prints…and prints.

WHILE....OBAMA hides his "real" original Birth Certificate with a Doctor & Hospital signature verification.....along with most of his personal information regarding education & associations.
Nothing suspicious there, right !? Hmmmm...???

AND....YES !!
He is a devout Muslim; Do not be fooled !!

Look at his Czars...anti-business..anti-American.
Look at his actions at home & abroad....his global views.
As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussien Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven (two professors at Columbia University). They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands.
It is a brilliant Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government.

Universal health care . The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and healthcare workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions).
Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30+ million Americans (illegal or otherwise) will add trillions to the national debt.
What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30+ million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

Cap and Trade.
Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, "Cap & Trade" has nothing to do with global warming.
But it has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy, and a payoff to Obama's biggest contributors such as GE, (which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) along with the biggest labor Unions and many more.

Make Puerto Rico a state.... Why?
Who's asking for a 51st state?
Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?
Certainly not American taxpayers. But Obama's plan is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressmen
and a million or so loyal Democratic voters who are, again, dependent on big government.

Legalize 12+ million illegal Mexican immigrants.
Just giving these 12+ million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America; but it also adds 12+ million more reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Then add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

Stimulus and bailouts.... Where did all that money go?
It went, of course, to Democrat contributors; organizations like ACORN, and unions like SEIU -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues.

It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions).
A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues).
All done so that those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America.
The country goes broke & future generations face a bleak future; but Obama's administration (big government), the Democrat Party, and the complicit unions grow more powerful.

The ends justify the means.

Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators.
Put the entire tax & spend burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except voting for Obama).

"Islamapobia"....the new "McCarthyism"?

Is it National Security or National In-security??

I agree with having the Congressional hearings initiated by Rep King as a matter of examining national defense and security issues; its definately needed!! ... We certainly need to protect ourselves by solving the increased threat from radical muslim terrorist infiltration via promotion of Sharia Law especially right here in our own country!!
Much of the problems stem from our insistence to be "politically correct"!! If we just stood up for our American principles and laws, there would not be the sense of "panic" that seems to prevail nowadays!

I also regret, however, to see that too many of us jump to the "islamophobic conclusion" that all Muslims are radicals and follow Sharia Law! It's similar to the same mistake we made with Japanese-American citizens being interned in prisons right here in their own country "in the heat of the moment" right after the Pearl Harbor attack! ....and the onset of "McCarthyism"!

Those that refuse to acknowledge or accept that there is a peaceful
version of the Muslim faith (WITHOUT Sharia and WITHOUT the principle of "erradicating the infidel" aka "Western culture") are as wrong as those they wish to stop.
It is a given FACT that there are (and have been) peaceful Muslim-Americans co-existing for years....despite some wishing otherwise !

AND YES, THERE IS A MUSLIM RELIGION....even though many these days are promoting and using it as a means to promulgate a political & social ideology!

The issue is really: Stopping the spread of RADICAL ISLAM & THE PRACTICE OF SHARIA LAW, while still defending our American way of life and simultaneously preserving our American principles of freedom of religion!...

A fine line to walk indeed !!!

Well, pull up a chair...sit down....and let's talk!!!

FIRST UP: Social Security

1. Raise the beginning eligibility age to 68....same for Medicare coverage.....for all persons who are now 50 or younger.
Make it 70 for those 40 or younger. Take away the upper limit payroll deduction restrictions for Social Security contributions.

2. Setup Social Security contributions to go into privately/personally-held funds which are restricted until eligible for withdraw.

3. Make it "means test" sensitive. That is, benefits are able to be received based on an income/asset qualification until reaching age which time, then all funds become available.

NEXT: Medicaid/Food Stamps and similar "welfare programs" such as Unemployment benefits

1. Make ALL these programs time-limited for specific periods of time only! Make all programs also subject to co-pays AND based on a "means test".

2. Make all programs subject to proper verification and monitoring by case workers (hire more case workers if needed). Include periodic testing of the "means" test as well as honest participation in self-help (work-seek, rehab) efforts. Include drug testing as necessary.

This has become one of the most absurd "SCARE TACTICS" used by the Washington establishment in years!!!

It's like my saying to you...."I'm not going to give you an increase in your allowance"....and then you say to me
"Well, then I'm not going to pay on any of my bills because I don't have enough for ALL of it"

Since when have you had to run your own household like that??
Has anyone not heard of "PRIORITIZING" bills?? Pay the necessities, leave out the lesser important items. Period!

Sen. Patrick Toomey’s (R-PA) “Full Faith and Credit Act,” (S 163) would ensure that the U.S. government does not default on its debt by requiring the Treasury to prioritize payments on the debt in case the debt ceiling is not raised.
Also - U.S. Sen. David Vitter recently introduced an amendment to this legislation that would require that if the U.S. does reach its debt limit.... Social Security benefits for seniors and such debt commitments will be the top priorities to be paid before paying any other obligations.

Another excerpt from Tom Diemer's article in POLITICS DAILY describes:
"There's always a little political theater around this," Geithner told the Times. The White House wants a clean bill -- that is, one that raises the debt limit with no riders attached. If the House adds conditions, the Senate, still run by Democrats could try to rip them out.
But in a game of chicken -- as the government starts to run out of money -- Republicans may use Obama's past words against him, the Times said.
In 2006, with the GOP in charge at the White House and on Capitol Hill, then-Sen. Barack Obama voted against the Bush administration's request to raise the debt limit. The bill passed on a party line vote. Obama said: "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure... Leadership means that the buck stops here."

On the Free Republic:
Posted on Thursday, January 20, 2011 11:25:29 AM by Michael Tergent

"As members of Congress debate whether to raise the U.S. debt ceiling—the limit on our government's debt—we should all agree on at least one thing: Under no circumstances is it acceptable for the U.S. to default on its debt. Not only are we morally obligated to honor our debts, but we benefit greatly from the nearly universal conviction that those who lend to us will always be repaid, on time and in full. We should never undermine that conviction."

So....Can it be done NOW??? YES !!!

Here's how I would cut the budget and solve our deficit....NOW!!!

Try it yourself here !! Compliments of Glenn Beck & the NY Times.

EGYPT - Another Foreign Policy Failure !!

The U.S. should have been pressuring Mobarek to work towards offering a "middle class" reform version of government in Egypt all along-over the last 10 years or so.

Now, its a bit too late....the people have gotten tired of waiting.

So now, .........the only alternatives are a military coup, or a relatively unknown IAEA rep.....either of which will not be able to resist the more-organized and widely spread influence of the Muslim Brotherhood! Just look at Tunisia & Lebanon! So, there goes "the neighborhood".....all because we are pre-occupied with our quest in Afghanistan and other such worn-out & ill-managed objectives!
So where do we go NOW ???

Another example of politics & foreign policy run amuck!!!
Give OB and Hillary another "F" for Failure!

The FIRST step in "Obamacare Bill" REPLACEMENT

For clarity....Here is the Bill submitted in 112th Congress by M. Blackburn on Thurs 1/20/2011.
This is where we should concentrate our efforts:

"In September, Republicans pledged to repeal ObamaCare if elected to the majority in the House. In Novemeber you spoke clearly. This week, we passed a repeal bill.

Repeal was only the first part of our pledge. We also made a promise to replace ObamaCare with patient-centered reforms that would reduce cost and expand access to health insurance.

Yesterday, I introduced the Health Care Choice Act. The bill has the support of Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton and the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Joe Pitts. Over seventy other Members of the House have joined me in co-sponsoring the bill.

For decades, state borders have created artificial barriers to competition in the health care market. By allowing consumers to purchase health insurance across state lines, the Health Care Choice Act helps to dissolve those barriers.

Here is how the Health Care Choices Act will work to bring down the price of health insurance: Today, when Tennesseans buy health insurance, they are paying for all the coverage requirements that the state insurance commissioner mandates insurers doing buisness in Tennessee must offer. Those mandates vary from state to state.

If you are a young person out buying insurance for the first time, you probably don't need a plan that covers hip replacements. Likewise, if you are a retiree looking for a good policy, you wouldn't be interested in one that offers neonatal care or covers in vitro fertilization treatments. However both the young professional and the new retiree must carry those benefits if the state where they live mandates them.

The Health Care Choice Act allows you to to go online, or to an insurance agent, to shop for a policy that meets your needs- even if that policy is offered in another state. That policy might also have addtitional coverage you need that isn't mandated in your home state.

The Health Care Choice Act expands the health insurance marketplace beyond state lines and gives insurance companies an incentive to compete for your buisness. We all know that competition reduces cost, expands options, and increases efficency.

Competition is what makes the Health Care Choice Act a better approach than ObamaCare. ObamaCare creates national mandates for all health insurance policies, driving up costs for everyone. At the same time ObamaCare mandates that everyone carry a health insurance policy- even if they don't need or want the coverage offered.

The bet ObamaCare makes is the near-term expenses incurred through these mandates will be made up by the long-term savings once everyone is in the insurance pool. Tennessee tried that approach through TennCare and it nearly bankrupted the state.

The Health Care Choice Act introduces competition instead of mandates. That competition will reduce costs and expand access. It will give Americans the coverage they need at a price they want to pay. That is a promise that ObamaCare won't ever deliver on."

It all boils down to interpretations of the various clauses of the Constitution.

As Antifederalists, often led by Patrick Henry, had grave reservations that certain clauses in the Constitution like the "general welfare" clause would be too "liberally" interpreted, and eventually lead to a tyrannical government in the hands of the wrong people..... the Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments came to being.

Even the First Amendment where Congress "shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" entirely twisted around to essentially prohibit one's exercise of any religion in a public manner...despite the fact that Christianity was the most important factor in shaping the Colonies.
When the country was was essentially made up of Puritans, Quakers, and Virginians (or Aristocrats). All three were certainly quite diverse, and yet each colony was quite adamant (and vigilant) against the interference of their religious rights (and freedoms) by the other! So, began the quest to formulate a government which would allow each to openly practice these rights without restriction or interference from each other nor from any "central" government. Hence the insistence of STATES RIGHTS !! In other words, it did not grant powers to the central government to interfere in the church-state relations as decided upon by any of the states individually.

Even the Civil War (or War Between the States it more accurately was).....was not over slavery, but over the States Rights to secede.
The legal basis for secession (or States Rights) is found in the Tenth amend. which leaves any powers not delegated to the the States.....thus, since there is no power given to suppress secession; so it remains a right reserved to the States.

Look at the Commerce all encompassing they have tried to make this become!! Just ridiculous!!

Even the 14th US citizenship to babies who "just happen" to be born on U.S. land....EVEN ILLEGALLY!!
How crazy is that!!! one seems to pay attention to the words "and under the jurisdiction of"; nor do they look to the original intent under which this Amendment was adopted.

As you can see, constitutional interpretations, today, have long been slaughtered, mutilated, and essentially disfigured to protect powerful politicians, special interest groups, etc. It is destroying our Republic and the "freedoms" we once had !!

Mostly due to the creation and development of the "Nanny State" arising from a gradual deterioration of Individual responsibilty, morality and family values!!

YES ....the TIME HAS COME !!!

Ready or Not...Here it Comes !
