Barry and Michelle wish you Umoja???

Statement from the White House:

Michelle and I extend our warmest thoughts and wishes to all those who are celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season. Today [Dec. 26] is the first of a joyful seven-day celebration of African American culture and heritage.

The seven principles of Kwanzaa -- unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith -- are some of the very values that make us Americans.

As families across America and around the world light the Kinara today in the spirit of umoja, or unity, our family sends our well wishes and blessings for a happy and healthy new year.

WOW! Thank you PotUS! To remind everyone of the genesis of Kwanzaa I decided to resurrect my very first blog from January 2008. Hope you enjoy learning about who actually started the made-up holiday of Kwanzaa. My thoughts from 2008:

The end of 2008 just seemed to be lacking something! The Messiah had been elected and would soon solve all our problems, pay our mortgages, fill our tanks with cheap gas and stabilize our bankrupt economic system... yet something was missing! I heard Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Holidays & Happy Hanukkah greetings as I passed friends in the street and listened to radio and TV spots... yet... something was missing! What was it? Then I suddenly remembered... KWANZAA.... what the hell happened to KWANZAA in 2008?

You remember KWANZAA... that pseudo holiday created in 1966 by Ronald McKinley Everett; aka: Ron Everett; Ron Karenga; Ron Ndabezitha Everett-Karenga (Ndabezitha being Zulu for 'your majesty'). Yup, the same Ron Karenga known for his 'United Slaves' organization and his connections to the Black Panthers. You guessed it, the same Ron Karenga convicted in 1971 of felony assault and false imprisonment for assaulting and torturing over a two day period two women from the United Slaves organization, Deborah Jones and Gail Davis. That's right, the Ron Karenga that whipped Deborah Jones and Gail Davis with an electrical cord and beat them with a karate baton after being ordered to remove their clothes. Yes, the same Ron Karenga that placed a hot soldering iron in Miss Davis' mouth and against her face and tightened a vise on her big toe and put detergent and running hoses in their mouths. What a guy! Yes, that's the same Ron Karenga we all know and love… the creator of KWANZAA!

Now you remember KWANZAA don't you? That weeklong celebration that has its roots in the Black Nationalist movement of the 1960s, and was established as a means to help African Americans reconnect with their African cultural and historical heritage by uniting in meditation and study of "African traditions" and "common humanist principles". (Just a note: Since when is torture a "common humanist principle"?) I digress.... KWANZAA... the last seven days of the year spent in celebration, featuring activities such as candle-lighting and pouring of libations, and culminating in a feast and gift giving. Now I'm sure you remember KWANZAA!

Al Gore lied... James Lee died!

One of Al Gore's Eco-Jihadists, James Lee, went off the eco deep end and got his brains blown out in the Discovery Channel offices the other day. A fitting end to a "Gore kamikaze"!

Gore's statement the 'US Senate has failed the American people by not passing Cap and Trade' was an obvious "eco call to arms" and wackos like James Lee took Gore seriously. How sad! Al Gore lied... James Lee died! (Hey... if it was good enough for Bush... then it's good enough for Gore!)

If you didn't notice the IPCC took it in the ear last week when the InterAcademy Council, an independent association of the best scientists and engineers worldwide formed in 2000 to give high-quality advice to international bodies, released a scientific review of the IPCC's practices... and found them scientifically wanting! WOW... in scientific speak... that's pretty insulting! It's like saying "you're an idiot, your data is baseless, flawed and you have NO scientific credibility!

Example: The much touted IPCC's 4th Assessment Report claimed in 2007 that Himalayan glaciers were rapidly melting and would possibly be gone by 2035. Now to make a scientific claim of such magnitude you would think the IPCC would base their position upon solid peer-reviewed scientific data... but NO... in reality the IPCC claim was based upon speculation, in a phone interview, by a single scientist. Speculation... not science! No control, no data... "scientifically wanting"! Just one example exposed by the Climate Gate emails.

James Lee actually believed Al Gore's inconvenient baloney! Gore is an eco-pimp! He profits from selling the "eco-apocalypse"... and has made a forture doing it! Does Gore actually believe in what he sells... absolutely not! He lives in massive homes sucking up carbon based energy. He flies on carbon fuel sucking jets and travels in carbon fuel guzzling SUV motorcades. Not only is Gore an "eco-pimp" but he's and "eco-hypocrite"! Sadly, James Lee was a Gore tree hugging minion and it cost him his life!

Al Gore can be proud he's turned political messaging into a violent extreme!

You must have failed Econ 101

Dear Mr. President,

(I'm sorry... but I find it difficult to address BHO, the clown in the above picture, as Mr. President, but out of respect for the office, and some before him, I need use the term Mr. President!)

So... Mr. President... I know you went to the most prestigious Universities in America (paid for by the the taxpayers... thank you) and I know you received multiple degrees. I know you have many years experience in such high pressure jobs as a Law Professor, government servant and Community Organizer (whatever the hell that is) but you must have failed Econ 101 as a freshman. So... as a trained economist, business owner, employer and parent from flyover country... let me educate you... and explain how the U.S. Economy works. It's really very simple.

For every dollar taken out of our economy to pay for useless government programs, wasteful and unproductive stimulus packages or systematic government waste, fraud and abuse... that's one dollar that cannot be used to make the economy grow. You see, once that dollar leaves the private sector it can't be used grow our economy. It can't be used to expand an existing business. It can't be used to hire unemployed workers. It can't be used to invest in new technology. It's gone... gone into that vast wasteland known as the federal government... where nothing productive comes of it... unless you (and you obviously do) consider a massive expansion of federal government programs and federal government power grab, a productive result.

Obviously your advisers are disciples John Maynard Keynes. I know, I know... he was 'state of the art' at the time I attended undergraduate school. But if you and your advisers actually follow Keynes then you've forgotten one very important point of Keynesian economic theory... and that is; If the government is to be the vehicle to stimulate the economy, borrow massive sums of money from foreign governments, thus, stealing future generation's economic freedom and pump those dollars into unproductive programs that attempt to increase employment and, thus, generate tax revenue... then you have to pay back the debt! Yes, Keynes' theory made it very clear borrowing to stimulate is acceptable... but what you and many of your predecessors have forgotten is that Keynes made it very clear the debt has to be paid back with the increased tax revenue generated by the stimulated economic activity... or bad things happen... like inflation, high unemployment, stagnant economic growth, deflation and hyper-inflation! (Honestly... Keynes theory was just that... theory! In practical application Keynes theroy has been proved wrong multiple times. In case you haven't noticed... you can't tax and spend your way out of a recession!)

The annual deficit under your Administration is now 4 times higher than Bush II's highest deficit. I might add, your Administration has projected annual trillion dollar deficits as far as you can see. You have added more debt to our nation's total debt than ALL your predecessors... combined! Sir... you are proving yourself to be the clownish, man child pictured above!

Call me if you have any question about the economy. I'll be happy to help and tell how it really works! It's really VERY simple!

One of the stupidest human beings on the face of the earth!

This is the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and without a doubt has to be one of the stupidest human beings on the face of the earth.

I rest my case and after watching the above video you have NO basis for an argument against my statement.

An iPod can be a dangerous thing!

President Obama, who is repeatedly reported to be a crack berry addict, goes to Hampton University for a commencement speech and rags on technology, communication and the opposing view.

Here's a guy that uses email, Face Book, Twitter, text messaging, the White House web site and tailored a portion of his campaign around modern communication methods to spread his word to the younger, tech savvy voter (remember... he even advertised in a xBox game), and he's complaining about political analysts and commentators utilizing the same technology to oppose the fundamental transformation of America into a European style social welfare State.

From his speech: With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, on cable, on talk radio, it can be difficult, at times, to sift through it all... to figure out telling the truth and who's not... Even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience with that myself.

So 'clamoring voices' is Obama code for bloggers, 'cable' is Obama code for Fox News, 'talk radio' is Obama code for Limbaugh/Beck/Levin/Medvid/Hannity/Coulter et al. The whinier and chief just can't stand opposition to his policies. What ever happened to George Washington's idea that... "we will met on the battlefield of ideas"!

As the leftists lose on the battlefield of ideas... As Government incurs massive debt that can never be repaid... As Government takes over auto manufacturing, banking, finance, insurance and health care... As opposition to the fundamental transformation of American continues to grow... As the Federal Government fails to protect its' citizens and boarders and individual States are forced to take boarder security into their own hands... the thin skinned President of the United States begins the demonetization of modern communication, technology and ultimately... the First Amendment... because it provides an outlet for the opposition.

I'm no Bush fan... but if Bush would have made this speech the left wing media would have gone crazy. Let's not forget... the Obama Administration is presently in Court claiming you have no right to privacy in you emails... imagine if Bush would have done that! So where is the press now? Oh... and the last time I checked Obama has continued the Bush program of listening to foreign communications coming into the U.S. ... certainly you remember Obama and the leftist press railing against that Bush security program during the campaign... yet it continues with not a word from the left wing press.

PBO is the most thin skinned clown ever to become PotUS. He is laying the ground work for a modern progressive position that... If you are in opposition to the Obama progressive-leftists-socialist programs then you are an enemy of the State and the Government needs to limit access to your opinion... ie... Woodrow Wilson!

It's time for the 2nd American Revolution!

The United Nations is responsible for Boobquake!

Here's just one example of how United Nations is really screwed up!

The UN Commission on the Status of Woman, a functional commission of the UN Economic and Social Council and is dedicated exclusively to gender equality and the advancement of woman. Sounds great! Very 'Progressive'! Well... Iran was just handed a 4 year seat on the influential human rights body!

Yes... Iran! That wonder theocratic state where stoning women is enshrined in Islamic Law and lashings are required for women judged 'immodest'! Where Islamic Law dictates women are NOT equal... where Tehran's Police Chief recently ordered a crackdown on 'suntanned women and girls who walk around looking like mannequins in an effort to cleanse social misbehaviour'. Yes... Iran, where Islamic Cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, recently proclaimed 'immodest cleavage' causes natural disasters... like earthquakes!

(OK! ... as I look stunned, jaw dropped and scratching my head... I ask... Did I really hear that from someone living in the 21st century?)

Wow... Iran now holds a seat on the UN Commission on the Status of Women! Other such notable Countries that have held seats on this prestigious commission are: China... noted for drowning new born baby girls in rice paddy's and Saudi Arabia where women are considered property. Just another outstanding move by the UN.

Basically, the UN is a joke and barely functions as an organization delivering food to refugees.

'Spread the wealth around day'

My proclamation to my fellow citizens: April 15th will no longer be known as Tax Day... from this day forward it will be known as "Spread the wealth around day"

Here are some really great quotes referencing 'TAXES'. Think about them as you write your check to purchase more and more government! That's really what you are doing when you pay taxes... you are purchasing government! Think you're getting a good deal for your money?

“In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes.” Benjamin Franklin

“I am in favor of cutting taxes under any circumstances and for any excuse, for any reason, whenever it’s possible.” Milton Friedman

“Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands.” Legendary Judge Learned Hand

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.” John Marshall

“We have a system that increasingly taxes work and subsidizes non-work.” Milton Friedman

“You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.” William Boetcker

“A democratic government is the only one in which those who vote for a tax can escape the obligation to pay it.” Alexis de Tocqueville

“Excessive taxation … will carry reason and reflection to every man’s door, and particularly in the hour of election.” Thomas Jefferson

“The collection of taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny.” Calvin Coolidge

“Indeed, in a free government almost all other rights would become worthless if the government possessed power over the private fortune of every citizen.” John Marshall

Yes... We like it!

Look, you bowing clown... Yes, we like it! We like being a Dominant Military Superpower. In fact... honestly... it must suck NOT to be a Dominant Military Superpower. Why do you think rogue nations and tin horned dictators want to get the bomb? Are you that stupid or just dangerously naive? Your job is to protect the American people and defend the Constitution. (Despite what you think... it's not to spread the wealth around or create social and economic justice!) Being a Superpower makes that part of your job much easier. Being a Superpower helps maintain American safety, security and sovereignty... don't forget it!

A quote on Freedom:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.

We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Ronald Reagan

Hidden Taxes!

When you look at your paycheck you see GROSS pay... or maybe you just look at the NET since that is what you take home. But have you ever thought about all the other TAXES you pay? Here's a list of some of the hidden taxes you pay. You don't see them taken out of your paycheck or deducted out of your bank account... but you pay them just the same.

Business's pay these taxes and add them to the cost of every product you buy. They are hidden taxes. Or they are added to your bill... like telephone taxes you still pay today for financing the Spanish American war over 110 years ago. (Just a thought but... I think it's been paid for buy now)

Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL license Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Cosmetic Surgery Tax

Actually, you will work until approximately mid April to pay all your taxes. That's right... everything you make from the first of the year until mid April will go to pay all your taxes. That's almost the first 1/3 of the year to pay taxes. Equating this to the work week... All day Monday and almost all of Tuesday of your paycheck goes to pay income taxes and hidden taxes. Now if you make more than $200,000 a year, all of Monday and Tuesday and most all of Wednesday will go toward paying taxes!

And now the Democrats are floating the idea of a VAT (value added tax)... basically a national sales tax... on everything! So where's the 'Value" in taxing virtually everything you touch, see, smell, eat or buy?

So what's the incentive? Let's all just go on Government subsistence and let the rest of the Country take care of us.

Viva la Revolution!

Arrogant Congressmen are going to cram Healthcare Reform down your throat!

The House leadership is trying to figure a way to force Healthcare Reform down the throats of the American People. House Democrats may even 'deem' it passed because none of them want their name associated with voting for it. The next few days will be very interesting.

Why? Because the American People don't want government involved with their healthcare! This is a... "transformation moment" in American history. This is that moment that Obama was referring to when he said 'in just 5 days we start transforming America".

Government is out of control and it's time to reflect on some of my favorite "Founding Father's" quotes on government. (For those of you that are products of outcome based education you'll need to actually read a document call the Declaration of Independence, penned by Thomas Jefferson, and the United States Constitution as prerequisites to the these quotes)

Quotes from Thomas Jefferson:

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

Most bad government has grown out of too much government.

The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.

The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.

If Healthcare Reform is forced upon the American people then I predict the eventual financial collapse of our Country. I believe that is exactly what the Progressives want. Collapse will lead to anarchy... which leads to revolution... and timid Americans will then choose to sacrifice liberty for order.
