Selective Law Enforcement

Tomorrow (May Day) unions across America are planning on breaking federal law (Taft-Hartley Act).

Since our federal government is now being run by pro-union people, what do you wanna bet NOTHING happens about it. NO charges will be brought by the feds.

That's because the Obama government is, and has been very selective in which laws they will enforce. "Fast & Furious" comes to mind, as does the dropping of charges for New Black Panthers who were guilty of voter intimidation. If you are a minority, or a union, you can do whatever you want, and break whatever laws you wish.

Are YOU Okay With This?

I'm sure you have heard of the terror group, the Muslim Brotherhood. They are currently taking control of Egypt. Under their rule, they are now passing Islamist laws such as the one that allows a husband to have sex with his wife even after her death. They are also promoting that a father can force a 14 year old daughter into marriage, and women would not be able to get an education or have a career.

None of that surprises those who know about the Muslim Brotherhood. And we all know that President Obama and the State Department has been supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood since the beginning of the "Arab Spring". But here is something most do NOT know...

The Muslim Brotherhood now has infiltrated the Justice Department, the Department of Defense and other government agencies. And the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood have been invited to the White House by the Obamas.

And, no, you cannot tell me that Obama is not fully aware of what the Brotherhood stands for - Mr. Obama was born a Muslim and had an Islamist upbringing for the first few, formative years of his life, so he knows EXACTLY where the "bear crapped in the buckwheat"

Again, our president is friendly with a terrorist group that makes it legal to have sex with a dead wife, and legal to force a 14 year old into marriage, and deprive women of any human rights. He brings Brotherhood members into high positions of government.

Are you REALLY okay with this?

I'm not.


Justice Department Openly Violates Constitution

Anyone with even a passing knowledge of the Constitution knows that the 4th Amendment in the Bill Of Rights states "No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process."

Kinda clear, to most people - before the government can take your property, there must be due process - they take you to court, and must win. Only then can they confiscate your property.

But in 2009 - that's three years ago - federal agents took a huge, highly valuable supply of imported wood from the Gibson guitar company. They then raided the company a second time in 2011. And in all that time, not only has Gibson not received "due process", but the Department of Justice has not even filed any charges! Yet, they still have possession of the materials they stoile from Gibson.

Yes - STOLE! When you take something that does not belong to you, without benefit of due process, that is THEFT!

The Department of Justice blatantly ignores the Constitution, believing they are above the law. No surprise, considering that Eric Holder - a man of highly questionable morals and ethics - runs the DOJ, and his boss is no better at following the Constitution.

We need to take our country back from these liberal clowns who so actively steal our liberties, violate the Constitution and bankrupt America. And we need to do it THIS coming election, or it will be too late.

The Minimum Wage Farce

It never stops, despite the evidence that minimum wage laws actually harm the economy and the poor. Now Santa Fe has raised the minimum wage to $10.29 per hour.

Yeah, I know - that sounds good on the surface. The trouble is, liberals who pass these laws never bother to look below the surface, to the unintended consequences.

Here is what really happens when the minimum wage is increased:

First, employers hire fewer people. This is because employers do not have money trees growing out back. They have limited resources allocated for wages and benefits. So, fewer jobs.

Second, because employers do not have money trees, they must now come up with more money to pay employees. And there is only ONE way they can do that - increase the cost of the products and services they provide. And can you guess who PAYS those higher costs? Everyone. Yes, even the poor. The poor now have fewer jobs, and have to pay higher costs for their food, clothing etc.

So tell me - exactly HOW does increasing the minimum wage help anyone. Again, it is simply a case, like with Oprah in my previous post, of doing something that makes the liberals feel good, even if it hurts everyone else.


They Just Don't Have A Clue

Having been the manager of New Hampshire's largest homeless shelter for 6 years, I know a lot about homelessness - and homeless people. They came from all over the country - many of America's homeless are transients.

And while I empathize with their plight, I am also realistic about what can be done. Unlike liberal elitists, who believe the best solution is to enable them, coddle them, or simply feed them and the "problem" is solved. Not so. Not even close.

In the news today, Oprah and some liberal friends fed a homeless man at a fancy restaurant, then gave him "a wad of cash." I'm sure that made them feel warm and fuzzy all over. But it accomplishes absolutely nothing.

Statistics show that 89% of the time that cash would be spent on booze or drugs. And the guy is no better off - and may even be worse off, as a "wad of cash" could buy enough booze or drugs to kill him. Did Oprah know this man's history? Is he alcoholic, with a liver that will kill him if he keeps drinking? Is he an addict? Is he homeless because he is a child molester hiding from authorities? Just exactly who were they giving that money to? I doubt they took the time to find out, and did not care. That's because they were not interested in actually HELPING him - they only wanted to feel good - and get it into the newspapers to show the world how "compassionate" they are.

Certainly, that homeless person COULD have been a straight, non-substance abusing individual just down on his luck, where a hand up (not a hand-out) would actually help. But the statistics indicate that is unlikely. The vast majority are a mix of the mentally ill (put out onto the streets when liberals closed the institutions because they deprived them of their rights), substance abusers and criminals. In the 6 years I managed New Horizons, we had two murderers arrested at the shelter, and numerous others for assorted criminal activity. In the 6 years I ran the shelter, the number of straight, honest, mentally astute persons who graced our facility could be counted on my fingers. Of the 100+ homeless per night, that means only a very tiny percentage could actually beneft from a "wad of cash."

Oprah had a better chance of getting struck by lightning than to have found a "worthy" homeless person to assist. And even if she were to find such a person, her "solution" is the wrong one. Such individuals do not benefit from a hand-out. But they can get back on track with a hand UP. Help him find a job. Help him to look more presentable for employment. Help him to get what he needs in order to pick himself up. I knew one homeless guy who only needed a driver's license renewed so he could work. What he did NOT need was a meal at a fancy restaurant.

Here is a suggestion for bleeding heart liberals who REALLY want to help, instead of just giving themselves kudo's for "compassion" - find out what the person really needs. Find out the facts. In other words, do as the Bible suggests - sow your seed only on FERTILE ground. Not on barren ground, rocky ground, or among the thorns.

First Contact - Let's Hope It Never Happens

Lately I have been watching SO many shows that portray UFO "aliens" as likely to be friendly and altruistic, willing to share their knowledge.

Bull! That is probably the most unlikely turn of events. Here's why...

In order to survive and thrive, intelligent organisms must make their way to the top of the food chain - intelligence requires a much higher amount of food. That is why cows eat grass - and then we eat the cows. The higher energy needs of intellect means the organism is almost certain to be a predator.

In addition, in order to get to the top and stay there requires fighting for survival and winning. And that means the predator is most apt to be a predatory warrior.

Aliens from another world would most certainly be at the top of their known food chain, and war-like. So, if we ever face them, while they may make an attempt to be somewhat peaceful, it would only be for serving their purpose - they would not be interested in our purposes. As soon as we stop serving their purpose, you can bet they will make war against us.

Look at the history of Earth's nations - every time a superior race encountered an inferior one, the inferior one ended up pretty much extinct. Think Cortez and the Aztecs and Maya, or even closer to home - what happened to the great Native American tribes of North America. Even the aborigines of Australia and South America - they either assimilated into the superior society or they perished. Every time.

Don't expect any different from a superior race from another world.


Moving On Gold?

A number of readers have been asking me what I plan to do concerning investment in gold. As you may recall, I was hot on gold ever since it was $240/ounce, and I sold half of my collection when it hit $1860. Now folks are wondering should they buy, sell or hold.

I am not a seer, so I really cannot say. All I can tell you is what I plan on doing. And right now I plan on waiting to see what happens in the November election. A huge factor in the price of gold will be whether we have leadership or not. Right now we do not, so gold was very profitable for me these last three years.

So, until the results are in come November, I am holding, and neither buying nor selling.

The Great Divide

No, not the Continental Divide. The Great Divide I am speaking of is dangerous to our nation.

Over the last 3 years we have seen the current administration divide and parse this nation into segments. We have seen them divide genders, creating a "war on women." We have seen them divide us economically with their war on the wealthy. We have seen them divide us by age, with their MediScare and refusal to even discuss strengthening Social Security or Medicare through reform. We have seen them divide us by race, as the administration jumps to stand up for every minority while refusing to stand up for any victims who may be white (voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers was dismissed by the administration). And we have seen them relentlessly divide us by ideology - all conservatives are evil, while all liberals are annointed.

When we enter the voting booth in November, just ask yourself ONE question before "pulling the lever" - do we need a leader who divides us every which way, in an effort to "divide and conquer", or one who will unite us?

Because until we become united, little else really matters.

Liberal HuffPost Just Can't Help Themselves

I really don't know how many people are so stupid as to believe anything published by Huffington Post/AOL considering how they continually distort the truth. But I'm sure there are fools out there who like being led. Take today's headline, for example, and the story that follows:

"Voter ID Laws: Obama Could Be Hurt By New Registration Curbs". And the story claims, "Voting laws passed by Republican-led legislatures in a dozen states during the past year have sharply restricted voter-registration drives that typically target young, low-income, African-American and Hispanic voters - groups that have backed the Democratic president by wide margins. The new laws - many of which include measures requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls - could carve into Obama's potential support in Florida"

Every sane person with an IQ higher than a dead person knows that is all false - no ELIGIBLE, LEGAL voter would be stopped by voter I.D. laws. Everyone already has an ID except illegals and all those dead people Democrats like to register. ID is needed to collect food stamps, get married, drive a car, board a plane, cash a check, get into an R rated movie, buy smokes and alcohol. Everyone is covered by at least one of those. So, which "young, low-income, African-American and Hispanic voters" do not have ID? If they are low income, they collect some form of welfare, and they cash checks. And chances are good that they either smoke or drink, and drive a car.

It's time the liberals stopped using lies and fear mongering to try and cheat in elections. There have already been several convictions for voter fraud - every one a Democrat. So the problem is real. Voter I.D. laws may not stop the fraud, but it will certainly curb it substantially, WITHOUT preventing any LEGAL citizen from voting.

Months ago I posted a challenge - bring my proof of even ONE American citizen who wants to vote but does not have and cannot get I.D. Just one. So far, there have been no takers. Not surprised.

HuffPost & Libs Are At It Again

One of today's headlines at HuffPost/AOL: "Pot Legalization Could Save U.S. $13.7 Billion Per Year, 300 Economists Say"

According to those "economists", legalization of pot would save taxpayers $13.7 billion in legal and imprisonment costs.

While I don't doubt that, it raises a serious question about the thinking process of liberals. According to this story, if legalizing something will save us money, then we should legalize it.

Now think of all the money we could save if we legalized spousal abuse. Or rape. Or even murder? I wonder where liberals would draw the line. If it would save us $100 billion, would they seek to legalize child molesting?

My point: doing the RIGHT thing should not be set aside for monetary concerns, or even public opinion. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. Liberals do not appear to care about right and wrong - they only care about money and public opinion (when it favors them).

There are a million ways to save billions in our wasteful society. Legalizing something that makes it even easier to escape from and cope with reality is not a good choice.

It is a slippery slope - and that is how liberals push any of their agendas. A piece here, a piece there. First, it's gays coming out. Then it's gays running half-naked in parades. Then it's getting the gay agenda into movies, then the schools. Then gay marriage. Piece by piece, a little at a time, they move the "Overton Window", as Beck would say.

Given enough time, liberals would turn America into a decadent society even worse than Sodom.


Tax Return Sent Back

The I.R.S. sent my tax return back!


I think it must have been because of my response to the question: "List all dependents".

I replied -

12 million illegal immigrants
3 million crack heads
42 million people on food stamps
16 million unemployable people
2 million people in over 243 prisons
and last, but not least --- 535 useless fools in the U.S. House and Senate, and 4 in the White House

Apparently, this was not an acceptable answer, even though factually correct.

New Liberal Talking Point On Taxes Is In Error

Over the last few days the liberals, led by President Obama, have taken to saying, "Taxes were at an all-time high in the 50's and 60's, and we had one of the highest growth rates in history". They are trying to con us into believing we experienced growth BECAUSE of high taxes. But here is where they are deceiving us...

It is a simple matter to prove America grew by leaps and bounds in the 50's and 60's IN SPITE of the record high taxes. This is because of a little thing called "cause and effect." World War II ended in 1945. It devastatedc Japan, Germany and virtually all of Europe. The only manufacturing country in the world whose infrastructure was untouched was America. During the 50's and 60's, America was the ONLY player of any consequence. It would be absurd to think we could NOT have experienced record growth. When you have a monopoly of manufacturing all the goods the world uses, you can't help buy get rich, no matter WHAT the tax rate might be.

Pay heed, folks - the liberals use this kind of deception all the time. They never, ever lay anything where it belongs. They say high taxes are responsible for growth, just because high taxes happened to be in place when growth could not be stopped. They claim Democrats passed the Civil Right Act because LBJ signed it into law, in spite of the fact that a much higher percentage of Republican lawmakers passed it while a much higher percentage of Democrats opposed it - in fact, Senator Byrd personally filibustered the act. And Democrats give themselves credit for the rapid growth of the late 90's, in spite of the fact that the growth occurred from the Republican Contract With America - it was a Republican controlled Congress that made the laws that Clinton signed.

So, when you hear a Democrat try to claim that high taxes resulted in growth during the 50's and 60's, you can tell them the truth - that the growth occurred IN SPITE of high taxes, not because of them. And you can educate them about "cause and effect" of a devastating European war that made us Top Dog.

The REAL Birth of Islam?

Let's begin with the actual beginning of Christianity and Islam. While both religions may have actually been BORN with Christ and Mohammed, these two religions were CONCEIVED much earlier - with the two sons of Abraham. One (Isaac, the fair-skinned son) fathered Judism and eventually Christianity, while the other (Ismael, the dark-skinned son) spawned the Arab nation and eventually Islam. And the two have been fighting ever since.

A New Slant On The Story of Abraham, Isaac & Ishmael

In the Bible, God supposedly tells Abraham to kill his son, Isaac. Then, at the last minute, tells Abraham to not kill Isaac. Later, Abraham's two sons - Isaac and Ishmael - become adversaries. Isaac is the fair-skinned son who eventually fathers the Jewish people, while Ishmael, the dark-skinned son, goes on to father the Arab nation. The two have been at war ever since.

I often wondered about this - some parts never made sense - until I asked myself how the world would be so different had Isaac been sacrificed. If that had happened, there would be no Jewish people, Christ would never have been born and Islam would rule the entire world. Realizing that, I wondered why any God would tempt fate by ordering Abraham to sacrifice his son, then reverse his order.

With an open mind, a person could ask if the "Gods" of the ancients were not really God, but demi-gods - another race that, as stated in the Bible, would be the forces of Good & Evil, used by God to do his work. Some of the Gods were good, some not. The eternal battle of Good and Evil.

Let us assume for a moment that is true. Then what we have is one "God" - the Evil ones - telling Abraham to sacrifice the one person who would spawn the Jewish nation AND CHRISTIANITY. And then a second God - the Good ones - steps in and prevents that from happening.

I say the "God" that wanted to prevent Christianity is the Evil one because it asks for human sacrifice, showing no respect for life.

So, you have the eternal battle of Good and Evil - and the Evil wanted to prevent Christianity and ensure that Islam would eventually dominate the world. Bear in mind - Ishmael used deception to rob Isaac of his birthright and inheritance. And even today, the children of Ishmael - the Arab nations - are still trying to rob the Children of Isaac - the Jews - of their birthright. To this day they try to deny the right of Israel to exist.

So, my friend - what does that tell you?

This would mean the "Good Gods" either did not want the Earth to be under Islamic, barbaric control, or they wanted a second choice for people, giving them the choice of either Islam or Christianity, and thereby keeping the battle of Good & Evil alive.

In either case, if this is what really happened - a Good vs Evil event with Isaac - then it would appear that the Evil side favors Islam, as Evil wanted to prevent Christianity and Judism.

And that would not surprise me - in Islam, it is proper to murder those who do not believe in Islam, and to have no respect for human life as they murder innocent people as well as the guilty. In Christianity, murder is not acceptable.

I'm just sayin'....

(Not So) Bold Prediction

I have made hundreds of predictions over the years, with about a 90% success rate. But this prediction is the easiest I have ever made.

I predict that if a Republican gets elected to the White House and Republicans take the Senate, the economy will finally start to grow. And here's my prediction - if that happens, liberals will take credit for it. They will laughingly claim that the upsurge is the delayed response to Obama's policies.

Strange, is it not, that in three and a half years they still blame Bush for this economy, but if Republicans start to turn it around, liberals will give the credit to Obama.

And the LAST thing liberals will want to hear from a Republican president is how he "inherited" a poor economy from Obama...


This Is Getting To Be Quite A List

People/things Obama has blamed for his failures:

Wall Street
FOX News
Catholic Church
Big Oil
Paul Ryan
Mitch McConnell
Arab Spring
"The Rich"
Chamber of Commerce
Supreme Court

Number of things Obama has accepted responsibility for - 0

Are We "Civilizing" Ourselves Into Extinction?

tr.v. civ·i·lized, civ·i·liz·ing, civ·i·liz·es

1. To raise from barbarism to an enlightened stage of development; bring out of a primitive or savage state.

2. to acquire the customs and amenities of a civil community
We all want to believe that civilization is a good thing, worth improving upon. In and of itself, that may be true, to a point. But when we begin to "civilize" ourselves to the point of being uncivil, we go too far. We also go too far when we use "civilization" as an excuse to become weak, or to extoll weakness in others.
Take political correctness as an example. It has become so pervasive in our society that it is the root cause of polarization among us. And that polarization often comes to a head in the form of violence. Only once in our country's history have Americans been so divided, and that resulted in a very un-civil war.
We can see this every day, as liberals use violence and the threat of violence to squelch the free speech of those with whom they disagree. I have often seen liberals attack conservative speakers with heckling, throwing food and otherwise disrupting their public appearance. I have yet to see a conservative do that to a liberal. These thugs break the law with complete disregard in order to push their agenda. And while 9 times out of 10 it is liberal thinking that causes this - liberals "invented" political correctness - they are not the only ones.
And then there is the feminizing of our young men. Of the 50+ young men in my daughter's graduating class, nearly half are effeminate- what my generation would have called "pansies" or "panty-waists". Their mothers and teachers raise them to be so, in an effort to "soften" the toughness that men naturally have. Liberals figure if they make men weak, they can put an end to violence and war. But the result is just the opposite - when the enemy perceives you as weak, they attack. It's natural - a predator will always attack the weak. And again, this feminizing of our young men comes mostly from liberal teachings - that gay is cool, and it's OK for a boy to play with dolls and wear feminine clothes, wear makeup and cry when he falls down. 
What these liberals and mothers do not understand is that men have a natural need to be strong and tough. They do not understand that civilization is nothing more than a man-made veneer that covers the real world. And it doesn't take much to crack that veneer and cast us into the real world where the only rule is survival of the fittest.
And we see that every day, too. When something so minor as a regional blackout occurs, there is rioting and looting in the streets. Or take a look at the depravity that has become a part of Occupy Wall Street. If some natural or man-made catastrophe were to hit Earth, it would only take hours - if that - for humans to become animals, fighting each other for survival.
And the effeminate will die. And so will their spouses and children. In nature, it is the woman who gives birth, but it is the man who is tasked with providing and protecting. Effeminate "men" would not be up to the task. And being politically correct would just get you dead, fast. If you are the only person in town who has food and water, everyone else in town will kill you and take what you have to keep their own loved ones alive.
No, I am not advocating that we give up on civilization. What I am saying is that we need to keep our eye on the goal of a better society, and stop allowing liberals and do-gooders to throw us off track with dumb ideas like political correctness, or feminizing men. We need to focus on that which is natural, and instead of trying to change it, we should embrace it and use it to become more civil.
A civilized society is one that is kind and gentle, to be sure. But Khalil Gibran said it all when he said "Only the strong can afford to be kind." Not much different from the new adage, "Peace through superior firepower."
When we give up our strength in order to prove how civilized we are, we give up any hope of civilization. And we risk our own extinction.

Another Misleading Headline

From HuffPost/AOL:

Church Officials Quit in Support of Group

Wow! Sounds ominous. Sounds like dozens of Catholic officials are rising up in favor of LBGT.

Well, not quite. Not dozens. Not even a few. Or a couple. ONE! One person quit.

Joseph Amodeo told The Associated Press on Saturday that he quit the junior board of Catholic Charities after Cardinal Timothy Dolan failed to respond to a "call for help" for homeless youths who are not heterosexual.

Not exactly an uprising in the church. But that didn't stop HuffPost from trying to make it sound much bigger than it was. Of course, that is to be expected - Huffington Post is not exactly populated by anyone professing a belief in any God. Their God appears to be George Soros.

Can't Say We Were Not Warned

Approximately 182,000 beneficiaries of Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program had their personal information stolen, and about 25,000 Social Security numbers were compromised, Utah Department of Health officials said.

OK. And don't you know that under ObamaCare, every person in America is legally required to have their medical records online by 2014. Gee, doesn't that make you feel so safe!

Here's a clue - the government can't even keep hackers out of the Pentagon and CIA computers, so how on Earth do they think they can protect our medical records and Social Security numbers?

Not a chance.

More Energy Woes For America

As if it were not enough that gas prices are at an all-time high and rising, and the White House has blown over $2 billion on bankrupt "green" energy companies, now comes bad news from our friend, neighbor and partner, Canada.

Until now, Canada has marketed their energy products exclusively to the United States. As such, they were able to give us a nice discount on thoise energy products. But since Obama said "No" to the Keystone pipeline, Canada now says it must no longer market only to the U.S. It must now seek out alternative markets. So, not only will we be "short-changed" on Canadian energy, but we will also lose that fat discount we got because we were their only customer. Now that their products are being put into the GLOBAL markets, we will have to pay global prices.

Good work, Mr. Obama. You and your liberal friends have single-handedly reduced supply and increased costs - AGAIN!
