America is Getting Redder
freedm_fighter

Obama has been a great poster child for the Conservative/Tea Party movement.

A recent study by two political science professors called, "Inequality and the Dynamics of Public Opinion: The Self-Reinforcing Link Between Economic Inequality and Mass Preferences", helps to explain the possible reason why America appears to be "getting redder".  The study reveals the counter-intuitive conclusion that as income disparities increase, both rich and poor become more conservative.

Every time a Lefty Blogger Lies to support Obama's agenda, a Moderate gets their Conservative Wings!

It is PC to Discriminate against Christianity.

Apparently the only religion that is PC to discriminate against is Christianity.  Um, this is a public school, no? Aren't these the same folks that got rid of prayer in school and all Christian symbols around Christmas?

If this article was written a bit more generically it easily could have been titled, "How Political Lies Spread".  Neither side is innocent, but since most of the MSM is left leaning, there are far more examples on the Left.

Someone on Twitter asked me last night if I’d heard about what was happening in Minnesota with the poor. I didn’t, so they sent me a link to Crooks & Liars that talked about a law proposed there that would
 
 


I think Lee will be turning into a freedom loving Conservative soon.

Mr. President, Some Answers Please
freedm_fighter
I'd like to know the answer to this question by Boehner stated below. I'd also like to know how we are going to pay for it now that the CBO released its analysis of the President’s 2012 budget proposal and found it underestimated deficits by $2.3 Trillion . I'm not saying the President is wrong in committing our troops to action, I'd just like to have more info.
“The United States has a moral obligation to stand with those who seek freedom from oppression and self-government for their people. It’s unacceptable and outrageous for Qadhafi to attack his own people, and the violence must stop.


I'd also like to know why, Senator Obama believed that, "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.", but now it seems that the constitutional law professor has had a convenient change of mind. In his own words....

A Grim Look at US Finances
freedm_fighter
Mary Meeker has an excellent analysis of the financial condition of the United States.  I urge you to read it.

If you want a great visual of how the US is screwed just look at the chart at the bottom of this post.

This is the "income statement" of the United States in 2010.  "Revenue" is on the left.  "Expenses" are on the right.

From the article they note the following:

  1. "Revenue" is tiny relative to "Expenses."
  2. most of the expense is entitlement programs, not defense, education, or any of the other line items that most budget crusaders normally howl about.
  3. as horrifying as these charts are, they don't even show the trends of these two pies: The "expense" pie is growing like gangbusters, driven by the explosive growth of the entitlement programs that no one in government even has the balls to talk about. "Revenue" is barely growing at all.    

We cannot create enough private sector jobs that add to the income column that can support the expense column.  The US needs to cut spending, specifically entitlement spending. Here's the chart.  Click for larger version.


Taxpayers Forced To Fund Democrats
freedm_fighter
When I read the article by Michale Barone presented below, the following quote came to mind:

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical."

                                                -- Thomas Jefferson

MICHAEL BARONE: Public Unions Force Taxpayers To Fund Democrats.

Everyone has priorities. During the past week Barack Obama has found no time to condemn the attacks that Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi has launched on the Libyan people.

But he did find time to be interviewed by a Wisconsin television station and weigh in on the dispute between Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the state’s public employee unions. Walker was staging “an assault on unions,” he said, and added that “public employee unions make enormous contributions to our states and our citizens.”

Enormous contributions, yes — to the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign. Unions, most of whose members are public employees, gave Democrats some $400 million in the 2008 election cycle. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the biggest public employee union, gave Democrats $90 million in the 2010 cycle.

Follow the money, Washington reporters like to say. The money in this case comes from taxpayers, present and future, who are the source of every penny of dues paid to public employee unions, who in turn spend much of that money on politics, almost all of it for Democrats. In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party.

Hence the violently outraged response to efforts to do anything about them.


So What Does the US Government Really Do For its Citizens?
freedm_fighter
It seems that today the primary role of the Federal Government is to redistribute money: nearly 67% of all federal dollars are sent to individual citizens for one thing or another.  Sad but true.

And it's only going to get worse.

I think it's inevitable: eventually the Federal Government is going to have to start reneging on the promises made to cut people checks; there just isn't enough money.  The next step will be confiscation of the wealth and property of individuals, and the third will be the loss of all entitlements.  At this point the "hand-out" class will start rioting and we will officially become Greece.  Folks have to face the fact that, as a country, we are broke. After watching the behavior of the public workers in Wisconsin, I see that while most Conservatives have realized this, while most Liberals haven't.
The biggest single thing the federal government does these days is ... cut checks. Lots and lots and lots and lots of checks that go to individual citizens -- $2.3 trillion worth last year alone.

Supporting Unions might be the Democrats Demise in 2012
freedm_fighter
I find it reprehensible that the Democrats in the Wisconsin Legislature (i.e. fleebaggers) are AWOL .  It seems to me that instead of becoming the party of "no", they are now the party of "no show".   

I'm laughing at the absurdity of how the erstwhile Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed that today’s tea party protests are not by any means an organic grassroots movement. Rather, she said, they are a deliberate astroturf campaign organized by two well-funded right-wing think tanks intent on obstructing the Obama agenda; no link has ever been proven that supports her claim.  However, we do have proof that the union "sleezebagger" protests have been organized by the DNC and Obama's  Organizing America team.  I wonder what Nan would say about this........  Her silence is deafening.
What I do find it interesting  is that since Obama spoke in favor of the Wisconsin union protesters, his approval rating went from a -7 on 2/9/2011 to -20 as of today.

obama_approval_index_february_22_2011.jpg



Most Americans are not viewing the "Fuck You Taxpayer" protests favorably.  In fact, a Rasmussen poll shows that Americans back the GOP Governor 48% to 38% over the Unions.

Obama didn't win favor amoung the voters by speaking in
favor of the WI union protesters.  In fact, voter dissatisfaction has definitely been reflected in the President's approval rating which went from a -7 on 2/9/2011 to -20 as of today. If these types of battles continue in various states over the next year and a half, this will definitely play against the Democrats winning the Presidency in 2012 and holding onto the Senate.

UPDATE:  Seems my news and analysis is a day ahead of the Main Stream Media.


A Tribute Song to The Obama Administration: The Death of our Republic

Too much fucking COW BELL!  Tell Will Ferrell to lay off!

Some Good Reading
freedm_fighter
If you are interested in the truth.  Not for the faint of heart. 
(editing in progress with new links -- standby)


Liberty:
Budget:

Health Care: 
Economy - Mortgage Mess:
  • Burning down the House:  What caused our Economic Crisis.  Version 1 can be found here.
  • The government run lending practices of Freddy Mac and Fanny Mae and how it led to the mortgage meltdown.
  • Obama sued Citibank under CRA to force it to make bad loansIn 1994 Barack Obama represented Calvin Roberson and ACORN in a lawsuit against Citibank, charging the bank systematically denied mortgages to African-American applicants. Obama worked against banks who denied mortgage loans to minorities (Hat Tip gatewaypundit). The case against Citibank was settled out of court. This lawsuit was one of a series of lawsuits that were filed by ACORN using “redlining and racism” allegations to lower credit standards.  Reuters reported that predatory lending aimed at racially segregated minority neighborhoods led to mass foreclosures that fueled the U.S. housing crisis, according to a new study published in the American Sociological Review.  But it was racism that created the predatory lending....... it was the policies of the left forced on the banks for their social agenda.
  • Actually, there is one more thing I can say about the role of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and other holier-than-thou smartest-in-the-room Democrats who caused the mortgage bubble which led to the economic crisis in 2008, and which continues to haunt the economy.

Global Warming:


MSNBC lies:
  • An Olberman classic goof on the budget.
  • A Ratigan Global Warming Faux pas. See my anthropogenic global warming post for more info and updates.
  • Unprofessional name-calling and behavior from O'Donnell.
  • Olberman playing the race card again and again.  I don't know about anyone else, but disagreeing with a person of color does not make you a racist.  Yeesh, get a new schtick liberals.
  • Dylan Ratigan accuses Tea Party Organizer of including people who want to kill blacks and Jews.  Won't let the person speak and put words in his mouth. 
  • MSNBC's Scarborough for cropping out Bush's Picture in a Newsweek which on the cover read "Victory at Last: the Emergence of a Democratic Iraq."  on his Morning show.  I'm assuming this was done to try to insinuate that this was Obama's victory and not Bush's.  These folks have no shame.
  • MSNBC  associates jumping off the sinking ship due to not wanting to be a "cartoon player for lefty games".  More in a series on the use of the race card for political gain.  The tired rhetoric froom the left never changes.
  • Olberman's baseless charges of racism against the Tea Party movement, and the Tea Party Protesters respond.
  • MSNBC, like Time Magazine, and the Washington Post, New York Magazine cherry-picked portions of Stack's apparent suicide note, which he posted online, in order to support the contention that he was acting out of a radical hatred of the IRS and the federal government in general and try to tie him to Tea Party Protestors. Similarly, they have tried to connect Bishop (here and here) and Bedell (here and here) to the protestors to undermine their message.
  • More race baiting by MSNBC.  They claimed the N-word and F-word was shouted at members of Congress on March 20th outside the capital during a Tea Party Protest.  They said the crowd was disorderly and angry.  I've viewed the the actual footage here, here, here and here, and see none of that.  I see protesting American's chanting "kill the bill".  The media is trying to portray protestors as racists.  Straight from the tactics section of Alinsky's rules for radicals.  Do these people owe the Tea Party an apology?  Yeah, I think they do.
  • Again, Olberman using race baiting.
  • Coward Russ Carnahan pushes bogus Tea Party Lie to media.  The claim is that a prayer service with a coffin to represent the aborted children that will die under the Health Care Reform bill was a threat.
  • Ed Schultz dredges up discredited 2007 Soros-funded report to demand (again) the fairness doctrine.
  • Olberman lies about the Black Panther case and accuses FOX of dishonesty.  The sad thing is that these facts are easy to verify.  I often ask myself why liberals don't take the time to do simple research.  Perhaps what I've always suspect is true....... Liberals prefer to have others do their thinking for them.
  • The Left makes up more lies about racism and the tea party.
 

General:
  • Debunking ACORN Liberal Myths.
  • Liberal Hypocrisy:  The Top 10 Most Disgusting Attacks on Conservative Women.
  • Even though in 2010 there are majorities of Democrats in the House and Senate, we are basically a Center-Right Nation. (see also here)
  • Obama's administration in free-fall from its 65% approval rating in January 2008.
  • Social Security.  A great example that our government can't run a successful program.  Not to mention their failure at Medicare and Medicade.  This year Social Security is paying out more than it is taking in.  Too bad Democrats blocked Bush from reforming it in 2005.  Back then, Democrats were the party of no, and refused to offer any solutions to the problem -- well except on Democrat who was brave enough to present an alternative.
  • ACORN on the brink of bankruptcy.  Finally, a corrupt group gets what they deserve.  Wish we could get a taxpayer refund from this organization.  However, with all the overwhelming evidence of corruption, the left will lie about the facts.  Just proves that if you repeat a lie long enough, someone will believe you.
  • Smears of violence against Tea Party Protestors...... again.  These lies debunked.
  • For those on the left who always praise FDR.  FDR believed in the New Deal.  This "New Deal" changed our country fundamentally to one of dependence (side note: If you can read anything by George Will, do it!).  Some believe he was our most destructive president because of his "court packing" and congressional tricks.
  • A reminder for you about liberals claiming to be against hate speech.  Those peace loving liberal egg tea party bus and BreithartBreithart ofered a $10,000 dollar donation to the United Negro College fund for any person who could show evidence that the n-word was used at the Tea Party Protest of the Signing of the Health Care Reform Bill on 3/20/10.  Oh look, Rep. Heath Shuler now changes his story.  It wasn't the N-word he heard, but now the F-word. Maybe seeing this video.  Yeah, right (eyes are rolling).  A more complete video archive of the event is presented here.
  • More Liberal Hysteria against the Tea Party.
  • Another example of violence. FBI charges anti-Semitic nutball, Norman Leboon, with threats against GOP Cantor and family.  Read more on Michelle Malkin's page. More from Jammie Wearing Fool, who notes: “LeBoon just so happens to be a Barack Obama donor. Somehow I doubt that’ll be part of any headlines.”
