2012 Election Information

11/8/12 Another Day and another train wreck in California. Proposition 30 Governor Jerry Brown uses California Citizens as his personal ATM machine. November 8, 2012

Looking back at the political spots that Governor Moonbeam where he used children as mules to get his tax increase passed, he promised that the schools would benefit from the passage of California Proposition 30.

Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown Uses Children as mules to get proposition 30 passed.

When Jerry Brown used this tactic, he led people to believe that the state would have to close schools if Proposition 30 was not passed.  That was far from the truth.

California parks department finds $54-million surplus

So what did Jerry Brown do exactly?

He partially funded a train to nowhere.

Calif. Governor Signs Bill for High-speed Train on July 18, 2012

Now keep in mind this train will use California funds AND Federal taxpayer funds to build.

So what is the problem?

First, this is a train to nowhere.

California high-speed rail to nowhere.

Second, The monies collected from Proposition 30 go to the general fund.

This means that only a very small amount of the money will go to education and all the rest will go to pork barrel projects like the Train to Nowhere.

Third, What happened to this?

CALIFORNIA LOTTERY CONTRIBUTION TO EDUCATION.

Local education administrators, elected school boards and the administrators of higher education make the decisions regarding how Lottery funds are spent in their schools and we are not involved in this decision-making process. According to the Lottery Act, Lottery contributions can be used only for instructional purposes and it bans use for the acquisition of property, the construction of facilities or the funding of research. Approximately 80-90% of Lottery funds are used in California’s public schools to attract and retain teachers. Some districts, especially the smaller school districts and higher education, have used funds for computer labs, teacher workshops, science programs, as well as art and music programs.

So what does this mean? The monies from the Lottery cannot be used to build new instructional facilities. Do you think that the money from Proposition 30 will be used for new schools or will the moneys be used to pay union teacher benefits. Let me be clear in my statement. I agree that most instructors are underpaid and that is a problem. However, when a teacher or instructor is not performing where the student is learning anything, that teach should be allowed to be fired and the teachers or instructors that are successful in the classroom should be paid more money. If all teachers are paid the same union scale, then he or she as a teacher or instructor does not have any incentive to keep performing better and better as they cannot earn a higher income rewarded by higher performance.

So in conclusion Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown has just falsely told the citizens of California that they were doing the right thing buy letting him (Jerry Brown) use them as his personal ATM machine/Money Printing press. The money will be squandered to special interest groups, mostly the Unions. This is the way of the Democratic party that pretends to “Fight For The Middle Class”…..unless the middles class does not pay the ransom that the Democratic party demands.

 

11/6/12 A Sad Day in the History of the United States. November 7, 2012

Today we look at Washington DC and we discover that the people of the United States have decided on taking the easy path of having government controlling their lives. Again for the second time Barack Obama has promised an easy life for everyone where he (Barack Obama) will provide everything one needs to “Survive.” What we we have witnessed in this election is “Social Masturbation” 15 Minutes of pleasure, 15 Minutes wasted, 15 Minutes of getting absolutely nothing constructive done. A radical liberal president, a radical liberal Senate and a strong conservative House of Represenatives. So as in the past two years, virtually nothing will get done as far as improving the economy.  Even if the United States does not go into a full blown recession, it will never recover to the levels of success that we enjoyed in the Reagan Era. What does it say about a country that witnesses the turmoil in Greece, France and Germany and still elects a radical socialist president back into office?  Why can’t the voting public look at those European countries and take a cue an not become that. Why did the public elect a president that support the Occupy Movement? Barack Obamas core is seeded in community organizing and social discourse.  It was widely known that if Barack Obama lost this election cities through out the country would burn. Why is that? Very simple. If the voting public would have dislodged the person that promised free living elements to the public, then the community expecting those free entitlements would have reacted very violently.  So now this presents the issue that this has now set a precedent in what people are going to expect out of future leaders of this country. Does this finally fulfill  Barack Obama’s promise to “Fundamentally Change” the United States of America? The Fundamental  cornerstone of this country is the Constitution of the United States.  “Fundamentally Change” means radically alter the Constitution of the United States of America.  We witnessed how hard Barack Obama worked to get re-elected.  Do you or anyone think he will just give up after a second term. Think about this for a moment. Barack Obama passed Obama Care without the blessing of a Republican Controlled House of Representatives. Subsequently a Liberal Supreme Court made the decision to instead of declaring Obama Care unconstitutional, it declared the revenue collecting part of Obama Care to be a “Tax.”  According to the Constitution:

Article 1 Section 7.3

7.3 Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.

And Article 1 Section 8.1

8.1 The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

The Congress is both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Barack Obama and the Democratic controlled Senate passed the Obama Care “Tax” without the consent of the Republican controlled House of Representatives.
That being said, what would prevent Barack Obama from “Fundamentally Changing America” buy fundamentally changing the constitution so that he can run for a third term. Keep in mind when a person accrues that much power over a country, do you think that person would just walk away from that power just because some piece of paper that he or she does not agree with says that he or she cannot continue that control of power?

The Unions have wielded an enormous amount of power under the promise that they (The Unions) represent the middle class workers (of which 16% are unemployed) and will bring them “Social Justice” which is a fancy word for Socialism where all are in an a government or organizationally planned society.

Modern socialism originated from an 18th-century intellectual and working class political movement that criticised the effects of industrialisation and private property on society. In the early 19th-century, “socialism” referred to any concern for the social problems of capitalism irrespective of the solutions to those problems. However, by the late 19th-century, “socialism” had come to signify opposition to capitalism and advocacy for an alternative system based on some form of social ownership.[8] Orthodox Marxists later considered scientific assessment and democratic planning to be critical elements of socialism. In the late 20th century, the term “socialist” has also been used by Third way social democrats to refer to an ethical political doctrine focusing on a common set of values emphasizing social cooperation, universal welfare, and equality.[9] It is used in this way by Third Way proponent Anthony Giddens, who rejects conventional definitions and implementations of socialism.[10]

Here is a peek into the future : Vegas Employer: Obama Won – So I Fired 22 Employees script

Will unemployment go to 10% or 12%. Will Obama impose further excessive taxes to make up for the diminished tax base of the unemployed?  This is what Governor Moonbeam of California choose to do. Instead of encouraging business in the state of California to increase tax flow and the tax base, he choose to increase taxes on those that can afford it the least through higher sales taxes. In the end this will force businesses to close and entrepreneurs to take a harder look at Texas to start their businesses if they decide to even start a business.

God help us in the future.

The Big Picture. August 17, 2010

It is very obvious that Barack Obama and his lame crew do not have any vision for the future and if they do it is a very damaged understanding of what is really going to happen.  This video has the vision of what will really happen in the future.

Please watch and comment. I will accept reasonable, intelligent comments either in favor or not in favor. I will consider “flames” as junk and will not accept those comments.

Enjoy,

A Time For Change Is At Hand. 6/29/2010 June 29, 2010

As my retirement years approach I have become very concerned. Many years ago I did my financial planning with the thought that Social Security will be a thing of the past when I retire. With those intentions I proceeded to plan as if there will never be a Social Security Check in my mail.

The current numbers are beginning to prove that for many reasons.

1. High unemployment which simply means that a great and growing number of people are not contributing to the Social Security System.

2. Significantly lower wages which again translates into less money being contributed to the Social Security System.

3. A rapidly growing number of Illegal Immigrants that are working but because of their status of living an illegal lifestyle they tend to live in a “Cash Society” were taxes are not taken from their pay. Rather they are paid in cash at the end of the day or week.

4. We have Barack Obama as president that is very, very anti business and has no desire to give anyone any incentive to become successful. Being financially  successful allows an individual to earn a significant amount of money for a head of a household to be able to keep a house and support their family without relying on the government for help with government entitlement programs.

5. After having conversations with my personal physician, He has indicated that soon he will not take on any more Medicare patients as the government does not pay enough or sometimes not at all for services rendered to senior citizens. This means that I will probably have to stay on private insurance through my senior years to get good healthcare.

So next question is how can this problem be corrected?

I believe that we as a nation should strive to return this nation to a two party system.  A two party system run by the Republican Party and the Libertarian Party. We should work towards banning the Marxist Socialist Democratic Party from ever running again for office.

People have argued with me that the US was always a two party system made up of Democrats and Republicans.  Well that is so far from the truth it is not even realistic.

Here is a list of political parties that have been influential in the molding of the United States of America.

I admit that most of these parties were dysfunctional at best. However they did exist and at one time offices were held in the name of these parties.

New Party (1992–1998)

Natural Law Party (1992–2004)

Veterans Party (2003-2008)

Christian Freedom Party (2004)

I admit that most of these parties were dysfunctional at best. However they did exist and at one time offices were held in the name of some of these parties.

So why not the Libertarian Party?

Did you ever read the party platform?

“The Party of Principal”

At this time I think the United States is defiantly on the wrong track to Socialism and Communism.  History has proven time and time again that Socialism/Communism has failed time and time again.”

In 2009 the socialist party PASOK led by George Papandreou has won the election in Greece. They picked up a 160 seats in parliament and the results are seen as a strong endorsement of the party, despite an election process in which the majority of Greeks polled indicated that they trusted neither party.

And the results of this election:

GREECE UNDER NEWS BLACKOUT: Here’s How An Eyewitness Describes Today’s Riots June 29, 2010

My friends this is the road we are headed to.  This is what happens when a Socialist government promises entitlement programs to the citizens of the United States that the government no longer has the money to provide.

I have said this time and time gain.  “The major problem with Socialism is that the government eventually runs out of OTHER people’s money.”

The end.

 

The Cloward Piven Strategy 11/22/09 Updated 12/13/09 November 22, 2009

OK so what is The Cloward Piven Strategy?

Let’s start with this explanation.

Today Senator Harry Reid continues to ignore the wishes of the majority of  the citizens in the United States by pushing and getting 60 votes to start the discussion on a very, very bad healthcare bill that is unsustainable in monetary support with any amount of taxes collected or seized.

Here is: H.R. 3962 that was Passed 60 to 39 to move forward for debate.

If H.R. 3962 gets passed it will  be the beginning of the collapse of our economy. This is far worse than any Global Warming Ponzi Scheme that Al Gore is running. As outlined in Cloward Piven Obama Care is the first step of many to implement the Cloward Piven Strategy.

Here is a definition of the Cloward Piven Strategy from Wikipedia.

Cloward Piven Strategy

Richard A. Cloward

Frances Fox Piven

Democratic Socialists of America

Time for you to do some homework and research to be more informed about what I am writing about.

OK so let’s talk about these people: Barack Obama, Saul Alinsky, Richard A. Cloward, and his wife Frances Fox Piven.

Saul Alinsky

“Alinsky’s teachings influenced Barack Obama in his early career as a community organizer on the far South Side of Chicago.[7][8] Working for Gerald Kellman’s Developing Communities Project, Obama learned and taught Alinsky’s methods for community organizing.[7][9] Several prominent national leaders have been influenced by Alinsky’s teachings,[7] including Ed Chambers,[5] Tom Gaudette,Michael GecanWade Rathke,[10][11], and Patrick Crowley.[12]

Saul Alinsky wrote two books.

Reveille for Radicals

and

Rules for Radicals

Saul Alinsky wrote this:

“What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. ‘The Prince’ was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. ‘Rules for Radicals’ is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”

So how does this all tie together? As you all know Barack Obama was greatly influenced by Saul Alinsky in addition to Frank Marshall Davis.

Both of these gentleman were radical socialists and in the case of Frank Marshal Davis had connections to the CPUSA (Communist Party United States of America.)

As you have figured out by now that Barack Obama is the most radical president that has ever been elected to office.  This becomes obvious in his callous disregard for the Constitution of the United States of America.  The idea that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chris Dodd and Barney Franks all say that the citizens of the United States have the “RIGHT” to government provided health care proves that quite blatantly.

If you can find anywhere in the US Constitution where Citizens of the United States of America have the RIGHT to healthcare please let me know so I can post it here.

As these government programs like the “Public Health Care Plan” and “Cap and Tax’ are pushed into law and forced unwillingly down the throats of the citizens of the United States of America, It starts to become evident that these programs are unsustainable with any amount of taxes that will be collected. As the huge numbers of less fortunate people in this country start to TAKE from the system more than they GIVE to the system you can see how this will start to collapse the financial structure of the US Federal Government subsequent imploding the US Economy.  The implosion will take place as the US Debt becomes so big that there is no way to ever repay it.  As the dollar collapses we will not longer be able to sell our debt to countries like China as they will deem the US Dollar as worthless. When the US Dollar becomes worthless that is a classic case of bankruptcy.  As Taxes and Penalties are demanded  and collected buy the Socialist government, it becomes very apparent how the Capitalist Free Enterprise System of the United States will collapse and become non existent due to the high costs of doing business and being able to compete with a Government run entity that may include everything from health care to “Green Manufacturing of Government Designed and Mandated Automobiles.”

As private capitalist enterprise starts to deteriorate the Central Socialist Plutocratic Party Government will start to take over and create a One Plutocratic Party System (A Marxist Socialist Party) that looks a lot like a Communist Society will start to emerge.

Classic Marxism

As you do your homework  on the Cloward Piven Strategy, it will become quite evident on the path that this The Untied States of America is headed in. It is so difficult to believe that the “Lamestream Media” refuses to report on this.

12/13/09  Today the Socialist Democrats jammed a 1.1 TRILLION dollar budget down the throats of the citizens of the United States. This is the first of many unsustainable budgets to be passed further deteriorating the quality of life for generations to come. This is the Cloward Piven Strategy in action.  Not only are people out of work and not paying taxes, but more and more jobs will be lost and there will be no amount of taxes that can be collected to ever repay this debt.  So what does that mean? Well seeing as how the government can not declare bankruptcy the Fed will print more money thus devaluating the dollar even more. In turn this will lower the quality of life in this country to 3rd world standards.  There will ultimately be three classes of people.

Proletariat,

Petite Bourgeoisie,

Plutocrats

As proletariats we will own nothing.  We will work for the government (Central Plutocratic Party System) and the government will provide everything the Central Plutocratic Party System determines what we our needs are inorder to be productive and Support the Central Plutocratic Party System.

The Petite Bourgeoisie will be the Modest Small Business people that will provide the support for the Central Party System.

We now start to see the difference between a FREE MARKET SYSTEM and what we thought as CAPITALISM.

In a FREE MARKET SYSTEM we are allowed to Create and Save income to improve our lives and quality of life.

In a CAPITALIST system we are controlled by the Central Plutocratic Party system seen in the graphic above.  When we are controlled by the Central Plutocratic Party System we are not allowed to improve our own quality of life, rather we are mandated in improving the Quality of life and existence of the Central Plutocratic Party System.

At this time the only thing that will stop this from occurring is reducing and eventually dissolving  the Democratic Socialist Party from ever running again for office in the United States.

The only way this country can be saved is with a two party system consisting of the Republican Party and the Libertarian Party or possible the Tea Party if it becomes a certified Political Party.

It is now up to you how you will vote in 2010 and 2012.

A Poll For Real Change. Please Participate and Comment. February 27, 2009

Please participate and comment on this idea.

My idea is that the voting public would choose the President and his/her successor if something happens to the Commander In Chief.

The thought of having Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton or GOD FORBID, Nancy Pelosi in control, there would be anarchy in the streets.

I’m looking forward to your comments.

Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin for President and Vice President for 2012 November 7, 2008

I am officially kicking off the 2012 election season.  It starts today.

I am officially nominating Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin for President and Vice President in 2012.

The reason that I started this post is that if in four years my life is either the same or better, I have to question what freedoms, rights and privileges did I have to give up in order to maintain that status and was it worth it?  Or could have I settled for less money and a much better state of mind in being confident that I have made the new and better choice for Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin?

Mitt Romney was my very first choice when the campaign for GOP candidate first started.  I was really bummed out when Mitt dropped out of the race.  I was so pissed that the media lampooned him for being a Mormon. That was the most unprofessional response that the media could have ever presented.  When I look back, I realize that same argument was presented against John Kennedy because he was Catholic.  How ever because the media in general is so biased in favor of a liberal, John Kennedy was elected as the 35th president of the United States anyway.

Mitt Romeny has the business experience that would have put this country on the right track to create jobs and encourage small business owners both present and future to achieve their dreams and success with out fear of crippling taxes and regulation.

So we had a choice at one time of a person that had served his country and was a very, very strong American Patriot and that had military experience. That being John Mc Cain.

A good solid business person that would have been fair to tax payers by keeping taxes low and maybe eliminating some taxes altogether.  That being Mitt Romney.

And a person with no business, military or any other kind of experience other than being a well choreographed orator. That being Barack Obama.

Do you think America made the right choice electing Barack Obama on emotion rather than substance?

Now about Sahara Palin. My gut reaction about Sarah is that I am not really comfortable with her at this time. However. I do see the connection that people had with her and I do believe that if she keeps her head in Washington DC, she is a fast learner and without doubt Sarah has “Balls of Iron.” I believe that In four year she will be more than ready for the Vice-Presidency. I want to believe that this is not the last we have heard of Sarah and she will become again a house hold name in the homes of America.

Again I was disappointed that the pro Obama media “Dan Quayle’d” Sarah Palin.  There is a huge differance between Dan Qualye and Sarah Palin and that is that Dan Quayle deserved to be “Dan Quayle’d” and Sarah Palin did not.

I think in the future the person most deserving of being “Dan Quayle’d” is Joe Biden.  So far he has said some pretty dumb things.  Seeing as how Barack Obama may be off limits for comedians and satirical subjects because he is Afro American, (enter Al Sharpton) I think Joe Biden may become the focus of all comedy and satire.

I started a couple of polls that I will leave up and keep running over the months to see what results are. I have it set so you can only vote once. So if you have already voted you can leave a comment if you have changed your mind since  you last voted. As always, this is in no way a scientific poll as it is not run by a million dollar polling organization that has the same credibility as the polls listed below.

Have fun and I hope you participate.  Also, please leave a comment as to whether you think the topic of this post should be an entire new and separate blog.

 

Thanks for all your participation so far.
