Obama Proposes Federal Pay Freeze. Oh, wow!

Written by Editor on . Posted in Economy

And as a show of solidarity, I’m going to give up my weekly pack of gum. Gee, we’re going to freeze the pay of the folks whose average pay is over $100K per year.
US President Barack Obama on Monday proposed a freeze on most government pay in a move to trim the country’s massive deficit.The White House said the two year freeze would save two billion dollars in the 2011 fiscal year.
Via BIG GOVERNMENT.

The OLIGARCHICAL-PRESIDENT … he’s like a chapter ripped right out of Orwell’s 1984

Written by Editor on . Posted in Obama Nation

In Orwell's Oceanian province, the individual is always subordinated to the state, and it is in part this philosophy which allows the Party to manipulate and control humanity.

From The American Spectator by Andrew B. Wilson:
America’s gift to the world isn’t freedom or democracy. It isn’t the example of a free market that has created unparalleled prosperity for the nation over more than 200 years. It isn’t the generosity of the American people or their willingness to go to the defense of others threatened with tyranny. And it isn’t baseball, football or basketball… or any of the exports of Hollywood and American popular culture. No, it is none of those things.According to Barack Obama, America’s gift to the world is spending. More precisely, it is our willingness to spend beyond our means — in the happy thought that we (or if not we, they, the Obama administration) are spending someone else’s money.
Obama Redefines America’s Gift to the World.

THE OBAMA WATCH @ The American Spectator: The Observer at his own funeral

Written by Editor on . Posted in Current Events

Gee thanks Mr. President. Your speech essentially blamed the American people for a lack of perception and patience. Very astute.

By George Neumayr @ The American Spectator: “At his post-defeat press conference, Barack Obama worked hard to project an air of somber reflection, even as his remarks revealed that he had learned nothing from the defeat.”Amidst the practiced pauses and detached narration of the crash came a litany of excuses, evasions, and arrogant denials. He more or less cast himself as the victim of a “bad economy,” as if two years of sending anti-business signals to employers had nothing to do with the high jobless rate. He made sure to note that other presidents had gotten similarly clocked after two years. And he essentially blamed the American people for a lack of perception and patience. Or, in the words of his VP, Joe Biden … “liberalism is hard “to explain.”
Yeah, right.

WAIT … WHAT? Washington Post headline: A divisive Obama undercuts the presidency

Written by Editor on . Posted in Obama Nation

But now ... not so much.

By Patrick H. Caddell and Douglas E. Schoen, two apparently fearless journalists.
President Obama’s post-partisan America has disappeared, replaced by the politics of polarization, resentment and division.We can think of only one other recent president who would display such indifference to the majesty of his office: Richard Nixon. What a change two years can bring.
In case you were wondering … this is not a complimentary article.

America: an apathetic union? Only 1 out of 3 can name the 3 branches of government.

Written by Editor on . Posted in Obama Nation

In order for a republic, “by the people, for the people,” to properly work, that ignorance must be erased.
It’s really quite simple: take some time out of your day and just see what is going on in the world. Brush up on your knowledge of how the American government system works, although many find it boring, it really can be quite fascinating (and understanding how the government works will help you in your everyday life).The old saying that “ignorance is bliss,” shouldn’t ring true in this “information age.” Because, really, how can we expect to make the world better, if we cannot make ourselves a little better.
Good luck with that!

Summary of the Obama legacy in a nutshell … it ain’t a good one!

President Reagan strived to empower our fifty sovereign states. He understood that issues such as military matters, national security and diplomacy must be run by the federal government, but most matters are best left to the states.

OBAMA: The Anti-Reagan
Barack Obama allegedly intends to be a transformational president like Ronald Reagan. But now President Obama is raising taxes on businesses and retirees, socializing the largest sectors of America’s economy, and decimating state sovereignty and creativity. This is the polar opposite of what President Reagan did in the 1980s, and reveals Barack Obama as the Anti-Reagan.So the Obama cheerleading squad (the mainstream media) can compare him to Ronald Reagan all day long, but the truth is the President Obama is the anti-Reagan, and his policies will bring us the same unemployment and stagnant economies that exist in the European countries that try these failed socialist policies, rather than the prosperity the real Ronald Reagan brought to America.
So some of you Obama voters out there tell me exactly “why” you voted for this guy again??

CLOSE TO HOME IN GEORGIA: County gun permit apps surge

CLOSE TO HOME IN GEORGIA: County gun permit apps surgeGwinnett Daily Post - Lawrenceville, GA
LAWRENCEVILLE – To call Benjamin Olsen “armed” is a colossal understatement. He’s more like a walking arsenal.At any given moment, the 25-year-old Suwanee contractor is strapped with a Kel-Tec 9 mm in his cargo pocket, a Springfield XD .45 caliber in a hip holster and, nearby in his truck, a loaded shotgun. Another 13 guns await Olsen at home.All this from a hulking guy who stands 6-foot-3, weights 285 pounds and projects the no-nonsense scowl of a courtroom bailiff.So why all the firepower?“When seconds count, the police are minutes away,” says Olsen, grinning. “If the bad guy’s got a gun, (the guns) are necessary. The only way to minimize force is to meet it with equal or greater force.”
AMEN, brother!
