Orwellian Scariness and Government

Orwellian Scariness

When I was in high school I read two books by George Orwell. Animal Farm and 1984. This might not have been such a good idea because even though I was a lousy reader at the time, I couldn’t put those books down! At the time those books really spooked me out and I have remembered the stories my whole life. Just ask my kids. ‘snicker’

I remember when the first George Bush presented his speech to Congress and used the words “New World Order”, I almost fell off the couch. That statement gave me chills. Here we are in 2013 and what has happened to this country in my lifetime is nothing less than scary to me. I guess the Bushs are really proud of their legacy, advancing progressive state-ism. Don’t get me wrong the progressive Republican Bush is just the first one to say it out loud. The progressive Democrats were just a bit more stealthily until Obama got his second term. Now, even NATO is trying to infringe themselves into our country’s laws and regulations.

When we came to the United States, capitalism was the way of life and it was not frowned on. We didn’t have big corporate gouger companies. Companies and Corporations came and went based on their performance. For those to young to have learned what capitalism is it is called competition in the market place. No one was bailed out by the government for their bad decisions. Let alone rewarding bad CEO’s with crazy bonuses.

This government’s elitists have given themselves so much power for so long they have lost touch with the general public and, with the exception of a few new comers who are standing ground, most just don’t give a damn about public freedoms and liberty. Amazing how the elitists give themselves exemption to all the rules they lay on us.

Everyone in the press keeps making excuses for this administration and their progressive cohorts. Awe they just don’t know, they are naive, they don’t lie they just embellish the truth, etc. etc. There is no excuse for trying to rid us of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Those progressives know darn well what they are doing! Control of the little people. Making sure they are uneducated, giving all the freebies for votes. I just see it as another form of slavery.

Talk about education. Common Core is really insidious. Talk about scary, collecting data on our children from age 5 to 20. If you are a parent you really need to study up on this effort being supported by many with large amounts of wealth. That program even negates our privacy laws. And all done “for the good of the children”.

Obama Care (Affordable Health Care), which the congress couldn’t take the time to read, undermines all small business giving the edge to the larger corporations, like General Electric, who can eat the costs of compliance. Hum, and I think they didn’t even have to pay taxes. Just a little loop hole in our ever growing tax structure. I’ve shared my feelings about this in a previous post.

Sequester has been in the news a lot recently. Yet this administration was given the option by the House to manage the sequester and the White House refused that option. Lets just make it hurt where it would affect everyone as harshly as possible. So, the White House tours shut down, releasing criminals from jails, the administration can order a remake of Gitmo but the administration hasn’t got the money to refurbish ships due to sequester.

The Federal Reserve printing endless money which only pads the stock market. QE Forever. Double Bubble toil and trouble. I recently heard that the government wants banks to ease their rules for new home loans. Isn’t that a bubble that crashed the first time? Oh, yes, we need to do that one again – sarcasm here.

The Postal Service wanted to make necessary cuts and the Congress says no to their efforts. Eventually leading to another bail out, I’m sure.

The Regulation nation has become the reality. Controlling near about everyone from small business to farming, energy resources,water, fishing, air, and anything else under the guise of being Green. Global warming has now become Extreme weather. Have you noticed how they are naming so many storms on the weather channel? Who does this help? Why insurance companies of course. Most policies have higher deductibles for named storms or disclaimers. Get this, in my neck of the woods, my policy can’t give me market replacement value because I’m in a zoned historical and flood section of the city. Double trouble. I even called my insurance agent at one point and, snidely, asked him if my house were destroyed in a storm would I have enough money to build four cinder block walls and a roof because the city won’t allow me to put a trailer on an empty lot.

Where are the Women’s Rights Activists condemning what the Radical Muslims are doing to women, children and, quit frankly, anyone who doesn’t agree with their sharia laws. Don’t get me wrong there are peaceful, fair minded Muslims here in this country. Muslims who have assimilated into the American way of life. But what is going on in the middle east and even other parts of the world like England where they are protecting sharia under their own laws. Might I mention China’s rules on males and female babies. How come the bra burning women’s activists aren’t raising hell about that kind of treatment instead of raising hell about birth control pills?

Then you have the stupid media pundents making dumb comments comparing our country’s relationship with Canada is like that of the Israelis and Palestinians. Give me a break! I don’t think Canada (our friend) has ever dropped bombs across our borders.

It is just so despicable for these progressive politicians and even President Obama jumping on the gun control band wagon because of the Sandy Hook shooting. How many children do they want to have in the news tearing paper, eating pop tarts, pointing fingers in the shape of a gun? Putting fear in a parents right to take a picture of his child holding a rifle, he was trained to use, to share with friends. Ending up with police knocking on your family home.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the ridiculous spending. Spending money on programs to study snails and fruit flies sexual habits. The green energy companies wasting tax payer dollars without even expecting financial rewards for the stock holders. Lavish trips trips and more trips. Just so much pork and waste in spending in this government is mind boggling. Does the Senate really need free haircuts?

And ol’ Harry Reid won’t bring anything to the table to have a vote on a damn thing. God forbid something might be brought before the President to sign. Oh, unless it is an agenda during a crises that they want to shove down our throats. Then, of course, there is always the trusty faithful Executive Order. I almost forgot that goody. Just skip congress altogether! These dudes can’t balance a budget and I’ve been waiting since Ronald Reagan to see a secured boarder.

Let us not forget that the safety and fairness guys are encroaching into athletics now. No head bumping, no dodge ball, no recognition of honors students. Of course we can’t forget the PC (Politically Correct) police. You cannot say Islamist, gun, illegal immigrant.

I just know that reading George Orwell’s writings was probably foreshadowing for what has now become my future. Lets turn everyone into Sheeple!

Speakers of the House John Boehner & Nancy Pelosi

John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi.

What is the difference between the two?

Okay.  I admit I don’t know how the internal politics in the House of Representatives works.  So I’m not to sure about the pecking order.  But I recently heard that the GOP could have nominated Pelosi instead of Boehner to be speaker of the House.  Apparently, it has something to do with seniority.

I’m wondering why progressive republicans didn’t just vote her in to be speaker because the Elite Progressive’s are housed in both the Democratic and Republican parties and they seem to rule the roost!   Heck, at least Pelosi doesn’t stand there crying crocodile tears and she at least tells you up front that there isn’t any reason for reading a bill until it is passed!  The established elites of both parties are from the same progressive box, what would have been the harm?  I, quite frankly, think it would have made a great statement by the GOP.

Plus, the GOP Elites sure have done everything to squelch the new guys on the block for the last two years.  You know, the crazy guys, we, the people elected to try and bring some sanity to the Government SPENDING.  I really hope the newbies can stick to their guns and stand firm.  Get rid of the pork and crap spending on stupid stuff like shrimp on tread mills.

If any of you Newbie Conservative types stumble upon this post, I wish you the best and really hope Washington Elites don’t swallow you up.

Fiscal Cliff – 2

“Fiscal Cliff”

This is such a dog and pony show!!  I have been watching this Congressional crap for days.  Then the President comes out with his backdrop of middle-income people for a publicity stunt.

The war mongers coming out saying the military will be cut to shreds.  I don’t believe that because they will be able to cut back on bases that are no longer needed.  Or even pull out of areas that don’t want us there anyway, except for the money we give them.  Another story.

None of these congressmen (perhaps a few) want to do anything except pad their own pockets.  Even the President decided Congress was doing such a good job of drama he gave them a raise!!  Whoopee.

Let the g-damn fiscal cliff go over the edge and at least we might see some spending cuts.  The Senate, not the House, hasn’t managed to pass a budget in 4 years.  Since when don’t we take care of our household budgets?  Not the Congress, they apparently don’t need one and just keep printing money.

If there is anyone on the Congressional Hill reading this meager post … stick to your guns and don’t give in to increasing the debt ceiling and not cutting spending.  Stop letting these guys SPEND more money!!!  Look, no matter what the panic is to date (there have been many) let these cuts happen.  This Congress cannot get a grip on reality and maybe if the cliff happens perhaps both the populace and Congress will GET  IT.

Why do we need a crisis?  Congress, particularly the Senate and ol’ Harry should have paid attention to a few things the House has put on their table back in May and even before.  Duh.

Fiscal Cliff

Don’t you just love politicians? How many times do we have to listen to the disagreements about the fiscal cliff? How many years and band-aids? And, now, us citizens are going to have to deal with the lame duck session! Whoopee!

The blame game begins. What have either of the parties done for us (citizens) except take our hard earned cash and spend more money? These guys and gals working up on Capital Hill are so protected from everything. They don’t have to follow the rules they hand down for us, they have made themselves exempt.

So, my thought. Let the damn fiscal cliff hit. What the heck, I would sooner have it hit earlier than later because the economy is been going downhill fast and isn’t going to be any better in 2013 anyway. Then maybe somebody up in the Congress will get their butts in gear. (Only wishful thinking here.)

You’ve got the Federal Reserve printing QE Forever which has caused the world monetary system to down grade the U.S. triple A rating.

Prices going up, up, up. When was the last time anyone on the Hill went to a grocery store to do their own shopping?

Unions ruling the roost for all of their benefits. Bankrupting large cities and even some states teetering. Quite frankly I don’t want the government to give them bailouts because they are to big to fail, but they (politicos) will, what is new? How many taxpayer dollars will it take to bail out the “to bigs to fail”  before citizen taxpayers out there realize it is OUR money those crooks on the Hill are spending?

So what the heck, I say go for it you Political a$$holes. You’ve got yourself and your political buddies covered. Just go ahead and screw us little guys with your regulations, affordable health care, meanwhile taking our civil liberties away, and at every turn making us go through security check points and personal encroachment for our OWN protection.

These Politicos haven’t been able to come up with a budget for three and a half years so what makes anyone think they can come up with a solution to the Fiscal Cliff? Plus, we might never see a real budget again.

Sooner or later, maybe, some normal people will get a slap in the face and wake up. My fear is probably never because the News Media is just as corrupt and they have the crooked politicians backs.

I’ve saved my whole life and with a government like ours I’ll probably end up penniless begging for one meal a day! Oh, with no trans-fat, salt, sugar or anything else in the food chain they want to turn into ethanol and deem bad food for me. But beggars can’t be choosers, can we?

So you Capital Hill Politicians, let the damn Fiscal Cliff begin!!

Politics Economy Vote

Hello my Friendly Readers.

I am sorry I haven’t posted a blog for such a long time but I have been consumed with what is going on in this election process and events around the globe. To that point I have not been able to even touch on so many of the topics that have enraged me. Some of the things I have heard and seen have just left me totally speechless. Jaw dropping information. Thank goodness for the internet.

The news pundents, pollsters and media have been dreadful. Oh and lets not forget the PAC ads (they should be banned). The half truths, lying by omission, and flat out lies have been horrific!

What happened to civility? Transparency? Economy and jobs? Foreign relations? My questions go on and on.

Embassy murders, sharia extremists burning, rioting, and attacking our embassy’s in a host of middle eastern countries, gas prices off the rector scale because the EPA won’t allow drilling, coal and virtually shutting down our own natural resources (wait till you need heating in the winter), food restrictions of salt, sugar and the size of a soda.  I am one of the aged but I don’t think anyone is going to throw me off a cliff.

Oops, I could be wrong about the cliff statement. If gas, food and household necessity prices keep rising that cliff thing will probably just happen to all of us. To make matters worse the government keeps printing bogus money with their QE-Forever! What the heck is Bernanke thinking? My mother and I were immigrants and coming from Germany she had stories about the inflated mark. Trust me those stories about that inflated money were not good.

Then you have European countries running amok because the people don’t want to give up their freebies.  Even U.S. is heading down the European path.  Heck with my little income of social security I even qualify for a cotton pic-kin’ free cell phone, which I won’t take!  Socialist, Communists, Muslim Brotherhood and Nazi parties making progress in the elections in foreign countries.

Now here in the U.S., of course, we get weeks of stupid information like the gaffs Biden makes, Big Bird, and stupid stuff like binders. Who gives a shit? Geez Big Bird is a big conglomerate and is broadcast world wide. Why should the tax payer subsidize the bird? The bird even got stimulus money, give me a break.  Real news might be refreshing.

Crap with drug cartels on the unsecured borders.  Mind you congressional Republicans and Democrats, alike, don’t want to address this because they don’t want to deal with the issue. Cartels for drug smuggling digging huge tunnels under the border? Well how about finding them and then blow the damn tunnels up!

I’ve mentioned before, in previous posts, that I have always been an independent voter but this year I have actually volunteered to pound the pavement and get involved because if we don’t get out and VOTE I fear this country is going to hell in a hand basket and I for one do not want to be ruled by the United Nations. Can you believe these jokers (UN) are coming here to monitor our elections!  Most of them have no clue what a Republic is!  Oh and have you heard of Agenda21?

Sorry, I did rant on way too many topics but I have taken a lot of thought about keeping this post as clean as possible. I guess I’ll just turn on the NEWS and get a recap of Dancing with the Stars.

2012 Debates and an Independent Voter

I consider myself to be a independent voter, have been for years and years. I might add that I have gotten grief for that too because people have always told me I’m waising my vote.

The 2012 scheduled debates are really looking like a joke to me. What morons set these up? Blushing. I just found out, Commission of Presidential Debates. This commission states that they are non-partisan. I don’t believe that after I have read about who, what, where and when these debates are going to be laid out.

 I really have issues with the chosen moderators. Jim Lehrer (Host of NewsHour on PBS), Martha Raddatz (ABC News Chief Foreign Correspondent), Candy Crowley (CNN Chief Political Correspondent), and Bob Schieffer (Host of Face the Nation on CBS). All are liberal leaning to one degree or another. This commission couldn’t find one moderator that might be an independent, conservative or even a little younger? I was under the impression that the two major parties were trying to win over the independent voters out here in the real world.

When I heard that the debate questions were going to be screened and that the moderators, as liberal as they are, were not going to be allowed to ask questions about certain topics like the economy, maybe! What kind of crap is that? Get real. Why bother having debates if the questions and answers people want to hear about are not going to be allowed. What are the moderators going to ask about? What necktie, football/basketball, dogs, grannies over cliffs or what was had for lunch?

You would think that the press/moderators would be really ticked off! Talk about control, when the press cannot ask pertinent questions related to the whole of our economy.

As an independent I sure would like to hear what ALL party candidates have to say about serious issues, not just the fluff. The devout Democrats and the devout Republicans are going to vote their party affiliation. But, I for one, want to hear both sides and if moderator’s questions are squelched, what is the point of a debate? The media should be able to ask important questions to all four of the party candidates (President Obama, Mitt Romney, Joe Biden, Paul Ryan). Just ask the darn hard questions and let us independents make up our own minds.

Outrageous nonsense!

Romney Speech Introduces Ryan on Wisconsin

Romney Speech on the Wisconsin in Norfolk, VA

Romney said during his speech at the Wisconsin when he announced Paul Ryan one little thing that made my hair stand on ends. The words were Repeal and Replace Obama Care.

That bothered me quite a bit because up until now I thought the RNC (Republican National Committee)  platform, Romney and the Republicans, were saying was to get rid of Obama Care, period! Then he (Mitt Romney) did his speech to introduce Ryan during which he made the statement Repealing and Replacing. Replace is not a word I wanted to hear in that sentence.

Now, do the Republicans still want to control all of citizens just like the Democrats? I’ve made comments before about how I thought that this Obama Care (National Health Care Act) was nothing more than a bail out of the Insurance Companies that could not sustain their costs and spending. I hope the Republicans are not disguising another ploy for control of the general public!

This is the excerpt of the transcript portion from Fox News:

As poverty has risen to historic and tragic levels with nearly one out of six Americans now having fallen into poverty, we will act to bring these families into the middle class. Unlike the current president, who has cut Medicare funding by $700 billion, we will preserve and protect Medicare and Social Security and keep them there for future generations. And under the current president, health care has only become more expensive. We’re going to reform health care so that more Americans have access to affordable health care and we’ll get that started by repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
