Cmdr returns fire when attacked,then charged by Navy.
I never like to be reactionary and follow anything that may just be hyperbole or conspiracy theory. That’s why I held off on addressing this issue until I got confirmation — which came Friday afternoon via text message.
There are things which make you just upset,like the liberal progressive left and media accomplices’ rage over the shooting of a lion in Africa but abject disregard and disdain reference Planned Parenthood dismembering babies and selling their body parts.
But this story has me dog fighting mad and seriously pissed off.
As reported ten days ago by Western Journalism, “A Navy officer and Marine reportedly returned fire at the shooter who killed five service members in Chattanooga,Tenn.,even though current policy does not permit military members to carry firearms on facilities such as those where the attack occurred.
The cold-blooded assault killed four Marines and one active-duty Navy reservist. The center’s commanding officer,Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White,used his personal firearm to engage the shooter during the attack,according to sources quoted in the Navy Times. A report from The Washington Post said that one of the Marines killed in the shooting might have been carrying a 9 mm Glock and possibly returned fire on the shooter.
At the time,Western Journalism wrote, Lt. Cmdr. White could face disciplinary action for violating policy about possessing a weapon on the facility that was supposedly a gun-free zone. The investigation into the attack is ongoing,and authorities will not know if White or the Marine hit the shooter until an autopsy and a ballistics report have been completed.
Ladies and gents,resulting from the text message I received yesterday,I can confirm that the United States Navy is bringing charges against Lt. Cmdr Timothy White for illegally discharging a firearm on federal property.
The text message asked if it would be possible for Lt.Cmdr White to reach out to me. To wit I replied,affirmative.
What kind of freaking idiots are in charge of our Armed Forces — pardon me,our “unArmed Forces”? What would they prefer that Abdulazeez had been able to kill all the Marines and Sailors at the Naval Support Reserve Center? Let me draw an interesting contrast:Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus is more concerned about lifting the ban on transgendered Sailors. Mabus has a problem in that for the first time since 2007 the US Navy will not have a Carrier Battle Group operating in the Persian Gulf. But this knucklehead has no problem with the Navy seeking to destroy the career of a Sailor,a commander of an installation,returning fire against an Islamic jihadist attack. I do not care if it was his personal weapon,he deserves a medal for facing the enemy.
Folks,this has become the Obama military that will not implement policies for our men and women in uniform to be protected — but will punish them if they do protect themselves. What ever happened to the Navy of John Paul Jones,Farragut,Halsey,and Nimitz? What has happened in our America where we believe that our men and women in uniform — especially the commanders — are just targets for these damn Islamic jihadists?
Can you imagine the message this sends to ISIS and all the enemies of America? We are going to end his career and court-martial a man who drew his sidearm to protect his command,and the assigned Sailors and Marines.
What is the difference between Lt. Cmdr White and the reserve officer in Moore,Oklahoma who went to his vehicle and armed himself to prevent a second woman from being beheaded? Is it that we expect less from our uniformed warriors? Are they just supposed to sit and be butchered,gunned down,until local law enforcement come along? Let’s be very clear here,I can attest that there are many reserve and National Guard troops who are carrying concealed during their drill periods…why? Because they are lions,not sheep,like the imbeciles who are making the decision to punish Lt. Cmdr White.
Doggone,what does it take? Here we have a known deserte,r Bowe Bergdahl,out getting picked up smoking marijuana,or at a house growing marijuana. According to Susan Rice,he served with honor and distinction. The real men of honor such as Army 1LT Clint Lorance,and now it seems Lt. Cmdr White,are forced into jail.
Ponder this,Obama will pardon drug dealers,but men who fight the enemy are imprisoned? Now,can someone,any one of you inane characterless liberal progressive trolls explain that to me? Explain it to us that you would rather have had more Sailors and Marines die than for this Navy Commander to draw his personal weapon in defense of his command. That’s what the Naval Support Center was for Lt. Cmdr White — his responsibility to defend,protect.
Here we have a president and secretary of state sitting down with a sworn enemy in Iran who holds four Americans hostage,and we’re going to bring charges against an American Naval Commander who returned fire against the enemy.
This is indeed FUBAR!
Here’s what needs to happen. Flood the phone of SecNav Ray Mabus and SecDef Carter and ask them whose side they’re. Demand the charges being brought against Lt.Cmdr White be immediately dropped. If those charges are not dropped,I will personally lead the charge to have Carter and Mabus removed from their positions.
America,this cannot be tolerated and must not be allowed to stand. I guess the life of an African lion means more to these liberal progressives than one of our brave Sailors. It is beyond belief that the Navy would embark upon this folly — they could simply issue a “local letter of reprimand” that would not enter into Lt. Cmdr White’s permanent personnel file — then immediately pin a medal upon his chest and fast track him for promotion to Commander.
White exemplifies the highest and finest of character and tradition of the US Navy. Those who would bring charges against him are indeed cowards and need be exposed.
Lieutenant Commander Timothy White,I await your call,and I will not rest until these charges against you have been dropped. You stay strong. You showed that you are Steadfast and Loyal. And we will not allow you to be abandoned to the perfumed princes of the Pentagon…and the White House. America shall rally to your cause!
This is just another in the long line of reasons why we must NEVER allow a progressive socialist to be commander-in-chief.
A shrinking AARP is losing lots of seniors. The lady who wrote the letter below not only has a good grasp of the situation,but an incredible command of the English language as well. Her letter was sent to Mr. Rand who is the Executive Director of AARP.
Dear Mr. Rand,
Recently,you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date. This isn’t what you were looking for,but it is the most honest response I can give you. Our coverage gap is a microscopic symptom of the real problem,a deepening lack of faith. While we have proudly maintained our membership for years and long admired the AARP goals and principles,regrettably,we can no longer endorse its abdication of our values. Your letter stated that we can count on AARP to speak up for our rights,yet the voice we hear is not ours.
Your offer of being kept up to date on important issues through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents neither an impartial view nor the one we have come to embrace. We do believe that when two parties agree all the time on everything presented to them,one is probably not necessary. But,when the opinions and long term goals are diametrically opposed,the divorce is imminent. This is the philosophy which spawned our 200 years of government.
Once upon a time,we looked forward to being part of the senior demographic. We also looked to AARP to provide certain benefits and give our voice a power we could not possibly hope to achieve on our own. AARP once gave us a sense of belonging which we no longer enjoy. The Socialist politics practiced by the Obama Regime and empowered by AARP serves only to raise the blood pressure my medical insurance strives to contain. Clearly a conflict of interest there! We do not understand the AARP posture,feel greatly betrayed by the guiding forces that we expected to map out our senior years and leave your ranks with a great sense of regret. We mitigate that disappointment with the relief of knowing that we are not contributing to the problem anymore by renewing our membership. There are numerous other organizations which offer discounts without threatening our way of life or offending our sensibilities and values.
This Obama Regime scares the living daylights out of us. Not just for ourselves,but for our proud and bloodstained heritage. But more importantly for our children and grandchildren. Washington has rendered Soylent Green a prophetic cautionary tale rather than a nonfiction scare tactic. I have never endorsed any militant or radical groups,yet now I find myself listening to them. I don’t have to agree with them to appreciate the fear which birthed their existence. Their borderline insanity presents little more than a balance to the voice of the Socialist Mindset in power. Perhaps I became American by a great stroke of luck in some cosmic uterine lottery,but in my adulthood I CHOOSE to embrace it and nurture the freedoms it represents as well as the responsibilities.
Your web site generously offers us the opportunity to receive all communication in Spanish . ARE YOU KIDDING??? The illegal perpetrators have broken into our ‘house’,invaded our home without invitation or consent. The President insists we keep these illegal perpetrators in comfort and learn the perpetrator’s language so we can communicate our reluctant welcome to them. I DON’T choose to welcome them,to support them,to educate them,to medicate them,or to pay for their food or clothing. American home invaders get arrested. Please explain to me why foreign lawbreakers can enjoy privileges on American soil that Americans do not get? Why do some immigrants have to play the game to be welcomed and others only have to break and enter to be welcomed?
We travel for a living. Walt hauls horses all over this great country,averaging over 10,000 miles a month when he is out there. He meets more people than a politician on caffeine overdose. Of all the many good folks he enjoyed on this last 10,000 miles,this trip yielded only ONE supporter of the current Regime. One of us is out of touch with mainstream America. Since our poll is conducted without funding,I have more faith in it than ones that are driven by a need to yield AMNESTY (aka- make voters out of the foreign lawbreakers so they can vote to continue the governments free handouts). This addition of 10 to 20 million voters who then will vote to continue Socialism will OVERWHELM our votes to control the government’s free handouts. It is a “slippery slope”we must not embark on!
As Margaret Thatcher (former Prime Minister of Great Britain) once said “Socialism is GREAT –UNTIL you run out of other people’s money”.
We have decided to forward this to everyone on our mailing list,and will encourage them to do the same. With several hundred in my address book,I have every faith that the eventual exponential factor will make a credible statement to you. I am disappointed as all get out! I am more scared than I have ever been in my entire life! I am ANGRY! I am MAD as heck,and I’m NOT going to take it anymore!
After his appearance in an interview in GQ,Phil Robertson,patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan was banned from the show by the A&E network. In their statement they wrote,“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ,which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty. His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks,who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”
This is not the first time the network has opposed the Robertsons’Christian views and the depiction of such on the show. In interviews various cast members have stated that the network tried to get them to drop the prayer around the dinner table at the end of each episode in which Phil thanks God for the blessings they have received. They were met with extreme opposition because that violated the basis of the show of who and what they were. When the Robertsons’threatened to quit the show they backed off. Since that didn’t work they have now decided to divide and conquer. I personally believe this was not the real reason for A&E’s decision,but only a means to a greater end. First separate Phil from the show and then they can wipe out the Christian aspect without his opposition.
If A&E has a problem with the personal views of the Robertsons they should simply cancel the show and release the family from their contract. Then they would be free to go to another venue where their views as well as the money generated by their show is appreciated. A&E hasn’t fired others who’s public views are grossly offensive to millions of Christians,so one can only assume that the A&E network is decidedly anti-Christian. They have made a corporate decision that it is OK to offend Christians,but not Gays and Lesbians.
This decision is going viral in the social media. Onan Cocoa in a Dec 19th article in “Eagle Rising”stated the issues here very clearly. “Make no mistake,folks. Our religious freedom and our freedom of speech is less important to the liberal culture of Hollywood and Washington,D.C. than are the feelings of the homosexual community. We may not be discriminating against them. We may not be harming them. We may not be “doing” anything negative at all towards their community… but our beliefs and language bother them… so we must be silenced. This is just the beginning. I won’t be watching A&E until they return Phil to the airwaves,and even then,it might take an apology for me to watch their station again.“
In his blog,Matt Walsh stated “Dear A&E,congratulations,you just committed suicide“. He commented on how this decision,made to placate a very vocal minority of the LGBT community,is alienating a huge group of conservative and religious minded folk who are the supporters of the DD show. That show is the only bright area of the A&E family of very mediocre entertainment venues. According to Matt “You just pulled the pin on the grenade and then put it in your pocket.” He then went on to point out how a similar crusade against Chic-fil-A recently in attempt to shut it down actually resulted in huge numbers of people going to Chic-fil-A in opposition to the “boycott”resulting in overflowing crowds in their restaurants nationwide. This attack on Phil’s freedom of speech will perhaps find similar results.
Is this the more appropriate question?
Personally I believe that as a private entity A&E has every right to take whatever dumb fool position they want on any subject they like,including this one. However,those of us who that are offended by their obvious anti-Christian bias also have every right to decide if we wish to support A&E and the sponsors of their programming.
People who are offended by this decision should contact A&E and their sponsors and let them know what they think. Perhaps the question we all should be asking here is not;was Phil’s statement offensive to the LGBT community,but more like the picture on the right. Are you offended by someone’s personal religious views more than their obvious lies and deceit?
Whatever else you might think about Phil Robertson you cannot deny that he is,unlike the other guy in the attached picture, open and honest about who and what he is. He aims to injure no one but refuses to modify his strongly held beliefs about God and man to please anyone. I personally find those to be endearing qualities. YMMV.
There is huge marketing of associated products from duck calls to fake beards to cardboard cutouts of the Robertsons. Should you decide to purchase any of the myriad of associated products this Christmas season, you might consider that there are two brands out there. One,the “Duck Dynasty”brand,is owned by the A&E network. The other under the “Duck Commander”brand is owned by the Robertsons. Let your conscience be your guide as to your choice.
For the past week we have been witness to the depths of depravity of liberalism in Wisconsin. Fourteen elected Democratic representatives in the state’s senate have fled to another state to protect their supposed right to prevent the legislative process while thousands of teachers abandoned their classrooms to wave signs accusing the governor of being a Nazi supporter of Qadaffi and Mubarac. Democratic congressman Rep. Michael Capuano from Massachusetts told union workers in Wisconsin,“Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.” Medical doctors from the University of Wisconsin pass out “sick notes” to union members that left their jobs to protest,some of them,teachers who took students with them closing down the schools while proclaiming they are “protecting the students”. This is not from minimum wage employees,it is from teachers and other public employee union members who are making upwards of $75,000 per year while forcing their state into bankruptcy!
These ridiculous tactics are being encouraged and orchestrated by the DNC with encouragement directly from the White House. Obama was quick to come out with comments about “ratcheting down the rhetoric”just a few weeks ago,but now totally turns a blind eye to the outrageous actions in Wisconson as well as similar events in Indiana, Ohio,and elsewhere as these states try to dig their way out of the looming likelihood of impending bankruptcy.
The national news media is quick to condemn the Tea Party and accuse them of everything from extremism to violence in their protests while they can produce not one single picture or video of such actions. All the while they say not a single word about the hundreds of documented and obvious extremist and fraudulent actions of the activists in Madison. They don’t even condemn Capuano for openly calling for violence in the streets of Madison!
Enough is enough. Everything possible should be done to strip these people of the public feedbag that they have strapped around their neck. The legislators that refuse to legislate should be stripped of their elected positions. Their seats should declared “vacated”by the governor and special elections scheduled to replace them with people that will actually show up to represent their constituents. Rep Capauno should be charged for attempting to incite a riot,a crime under federal law as well as in all fifty states! Teachers that were away from their jobs claiming “sick days”should be identified from the thousands of photos and videos available and fired for the fraud they perpetuated on the taxpayers of Wisconsin. Likewise for other public employees that participated illegally in this debacle should be terminated.
Physicians that falsified “sick notes” should have their licenses pulled and prohibited from practicing medicine in the future. That idiot that kept screaming “Fox lies,Fox lies” attempting to prevent Fox news reporters from accurately reporting the events should be deported just for extreme stupidity or perhaps referred to a local vet for neutering just to prevent the potential of spreading the insanity by breeding. Media representatives that turned a blind eye to the Nazi signs and rhetoric should,well since they are not public employees,they should be just ignored and their outlets boycotted by reasonable people.
We have a federal government that is $14 trillion (that’s a 14 followed by twelve zeros folks) and instead of making a serious effort to work on correcting that problem Obama submits a budget that perpetuates federal deficits for the foreseeable future. Obama and his Democratic cohorts ran up almost as much of that debt in two years as Bush did in eight yet continue to blame Bush for the current financial plight accepting none of the blame for themselves. Now when states attempt to correct for their looming bankruptcies he supports the status quo and advocates for the glutenous public service unions that are raping the taxpayers of the states of Wisconsin,Indiana,Ohio,and elsewhere with bloated contracts.
Enough is enough folks. We have teachers who can’t even spell,showing up with protest signs such as one I saw that proudly proclaimed “Sav are teachers”. They are illegally demonstrating with falsified claims for being out sick while protesting for the indefensibly bloated contracts that are bankrupting our states. Our schools are failing and children are graduating that are functionally illiterate while teachers in WI are protesting for contracts far in excess of what is found in the private sector. Nationally we are broke and quickly approaching the point of default and the situation is becoming more critical day by day. This insanity must stop or we will simply cease to exist as a nation.
I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the successful passing of the recent health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued:
They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard the young man exclaim,“Isn’t Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean,after all,he is healing the sick.”The young woman enthusiastically proclaimed,“Yeah,and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market would work for health care. They are all crooks and thieves and don’t deserve all of that money.”Another said,‘The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate.”At this,I had had enough.
I arose from my seat,mustering all the restraint I could find,and approached their table. “Please excuse me;may I impose upon you for one moment?”They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table,smiled as best I could and began an experiment.
“I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?”They looked at each other in astonishment. “Why would you do something like that?”asked a young man,“There isn’t anything for free in this world.”They began to laugh at me,as they did not realize this man had just made my point. “I am serious,I will give you my house for free,no money what so ever. Anyone interested?”In unison,a resounding “Hell Yeah”fills the room.
“Since there are too many of you,I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money free bargain.”I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes,the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust. “I tell you what;I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules.”Again,they looked at one another,an expression of bewilderment on their faces. The perky young woman asked,“What are the rules?”I smiled and said,“I don’t know. I have not yet defined them. However,it is a free home that I offer you.”They giggled amongst themselves,the youngest of which said,“What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds,old man.”I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. “I am serious,this is a legitimate offer.”They gaped at me for a moment.
“I’ll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?”boasted the youngest among them. “Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?”I asked. The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. “Oh hell yeah! Where do I sign up?”I took a napkin and wrote,“I give this man my home,without the burden of financial obligation,so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction.”I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature. “Where are the keys to my new house?”he asked in a mocking tone of voice. All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table,pulling the keys from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.
“Now that we have entered into this binding contract,witnessed by all of your friends,I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day. You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm,no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do,think as I do and do it with blind faith. These are my terms. Here are your keys.”I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumb founded.
“Are you out of your mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?”the young man appeared irritated. “You did when you signed this contract before reading it,understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement.”Was all I said. The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people. “You can shove that stupid deal up you’re a** old man,I want no part of it”exclaimed the now infuriated young man. “You have committed to the contract,as witnessed by all of your friends;you cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short,I am your Master.”At this,the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.
After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs,I revealed my true intent. “What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn;that you are entitled to that which you did not earn;that you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research,study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it to you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away;therefore,it is not freedom.”With that,I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. “This is the nature of your new health care legislation.”
I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation and was surprised by applause. The elderly gentleman,who was clearly entertained,shook my hand enthusiastically and said,“Thank you Sir,these kids don’t understand Liberty these days.”He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said,“You earned this one,it is an honor to pickup the tab.”I shook his hand in thanks,leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled,and sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.

Wednesday’s Presidential address to a joint session of congress was interrupted by an unusual shout by Rep Joe Wilson of SC. When Obama stated that illegal aliens would not be given coverage under Obamacare,Joe shouted,“You lie!!”The following day,under pressure from the party leadership he called the White House and apologized for his lack of civility. He may have had a slip in civility,but was he correct in his assessment?
We have been listening to claims and counter claims repeatedly over the summer about what is and what is not part of the healthcare proposals before congress. There have been a lot of “bait and switch”tactics about the various bills,but the only bill currently presented and released by committee is the one crafted in the house. This 1000+ page monstrosity has been accused of containing most every onerous proposal possible by its opponents while the supporters claim none of these things exist in the bill. For example,some say there is no “death panel”in the bill although that has been claimed by numerous opponents. Can both claims be right?
First the illegal aliens claim. Obama is right in that the bill does have a small provision that states that persons not legally in the US are not authorized care under its provisions. Unfortunately Joe Wilson is more correct that under that bill millions of illegal aliens would receive healthcare under its provisions. How could this be? Well,although the bill specifically excludes the illegals it also specifically denies the right of healthcare providers to check for illegal status or eligibility under the plan.
Two provisions were proposed by Republicans in the house to require proof of legal residency for care under the bill and both were defeated by the Democrats in pure party line votes. Why,if illegals were not to be eligible for care,would anyone specifically want to deny the right of providers to determine if persons were legally here in this country in order to receive such care?
Well,the simple answer is that the claims that illegals would not be authorized care is disingenuous at best,and an outright lie at worst. It is obvious that the crafters of this bill intended,1) to allow illegals to receive care under its provisions and 2) to be able to deny that they did so.
What? Does this mean our Democratic leadership is actually lied to us? Yes Dorthy,politicians do lie from time to time and this tome is full of such distortions that are designed specifically to mislead the American public. Why do you suppose there was such a push to approve it without even reading it back in late July? It is plain and simple. The writers did not want this thing exposed to the “light of day”.
How about death panels? If illegals will indeed be treated under the bill,do they also exist? Well,yes and no. There is mandatory “end of life counseling”required under the bill,but nothing says anything about denial of treatment for elderly or terminal patients. However,the “footprints in the sands”indicate just such panels will exist.
Rahm Emanuel,Obama’s chief of staff,has stated as much on occasions. Even more revealing are statements of his brother Dr Ezekiel Emanuel who has been appointed to two key positions:health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. According to him in an article in last years “Health Affairs,Feb 27,2008,“Vague promises of savings from cutting waste,enhancing prevention and wellness,installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely ‘lipstick’cost control,more for show and public relations than for true change.”In other articles he outlined how to control costs by denying treatment to the elderly infirm and the very young,both of whom are not of the same value to society as youthful basically healthy adults. Since Obama has promised to control the cost,and these are the persons he has employed to show him how to do so,what do you think? Yes Dorothy,right again.
Then Obama wants you to believe that he will not cut care to the elderly,and he will find enough savings from eliminating abuse in current Medicare and Medicaid to pay for it. And are we to believe the tooth fairy and the easter bunny are going to pop up and give you a check for a zillion dollars too?
If the federal government can find the aproximately 20% of waste and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid why haven’t they already done so? If he is not planning to cut care to the elderly why is he citing to remove 500 Billion from those two programs to fund Obamacare?
The federal government came up with Social Security back in the 30s and promised it would never be the monster that it has become. It is currently bankrupt and has had to be rescued by additional taxes repeatedly. Same for Medicare and Medicaid,and the good old U.S. Post Office as well. The truth is that government has no profit motive and is thus inept at doing anything in a fiscally effective manner. After all,when they overspend they can simply raise taxes or borrow money that they have no intent on ever repaying.
Government has no money to do anything for anyone that they do not first steal from someone else through taxation or deficit spending. Why would an alert American public want to turn over one seventh of our economy to them? Answer. We wouldn’t,that’s why they hid it in a 1000+ page monster bill and pressed the congress to pass it without reading it. John Conyers,chairman of the House Judiciary Committee,even ridiculed anyone advocating they “Read the bill!”saying it would take “two days and two lawyers”to do so.
Keep firmly in mind what the people that push this bill are doing. They are playing the American public for fools and trying to push what they know is an abomination (or perhaps Obamination?) on us. Why do you think Obama is pushing for immediate action on something that will not take place until 2013,conveniently right after his reelection campaign?
There is no emergency requiring fast action to buy a product produced by proven snake oil salesmen America. The fact that they are trying to push this off on us is reason enough to remove them from office at the first opportunity. Thank you Joe Wilson for having the guts to recognize a shell game for what it is and call,“Liar,Liar,Pants on Fire!“
