Barack Obama Proves Yet Again That He Does Not Like The United States Of America. May 21, 2010

Maybe it is me, But I don’t think that allowing a president of another nation to address the US Congress and then disrespect the laws of any state or federal entity is patriotic. This happened on Thursday May 20, 2010

I don’t think I am alone  on this. I absolutely admire this speech. It is one of the most poignant responses I have heard in years.  I hope he wins in California Senate and replaces the tired old Barbara Boxer.

This is a very very dangerous precedent that Barack Obama has set.  Why?

Mexican President Felipe Calderon says that he is trying to prevent emigration from Mexico to the US. I’m sure that is just political posturing.

Here is why.  The United States is a “Cash Cow” for him and Mexico. It is easier to send people to America Illegally so they work and send money back to Mexico than to grow the economy in Mexico and employ the people there.

I also believe that Any President of Mexico would like North America to look like the map above. I’m sure this is a deep deep seeded goal somewhere.

Here is the most disgusting thing that happened  on 5/20/10 and I want you to think about this. When Mexican President Felipe Calderon denounced Arizona AB 1070,

Arizona Immigration Law AB 1070

the entire Deomcratic Party got up and applauded him for denouncing the Arizona Law.  This is not only disrespectable  to the Great State of Arizona, it is a slap in the face to the people of the United States and more important to all the legal immigrants that are here in the states now.

To add fuel to this toxic fire John Morton said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, not a patchwork of state laws, he said. This statement was reported by the Chicago Tribune as written here.

So what we are witness is a complete breakdown of the following law.

INA: ACT 236 – APPREHENSION AND DETENTION OF ALIENS

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This country is in a lot of trouble and not a lot of people care about the what is good for the nation.

President John Kennedy is rolling over in his grave and crying because of what Barack Obama and his Marxist/Socialist Party is doing to this country.

John Kennedy was the very last Democratic Party President that I ever liked.

These are the greatest words that any President has ever said in my life time.

Barack Obama says.  Ask not what you can do for your country, Let me Tell You what your country can do for you.

Maybe Teddy Roosevelt said it better about immigration.

Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

10th Amendment And Other Topics. April 3, 2010

Hello All.

It has been a while since I have posted anything.  There was a time when there was maybe one big political atrocity per week or maybe two perpetrated on the US population by the Barack Obama’s wrecking crew. In the past months it would have been impossible for me to comment on all the things that have happened.  I just would have not had enough hours in the day. As I absorbed the series of events that have occurred, I came to a conclusion that a lot of these events have been exposed with ever sharpening coverage by Fox News Network.  When I first started to blog the Tea Party did not exist.  My goal in my writings was to get people to think. My goal did not include converting Democrats into Republicans or Republicans into Democrats.  My goal was to convert sheep following a good looking guy that spoke really well from a TelePrompTer into Patriotic Americans that would wake up, do their own research, read history and come to the conclusion that Marxist Socialism has been a huge failure in past history. Marxist Socialism is a distorted Utopian view on social/economic, human lifestyle.

Since I have started to blog, the Tea Party has come into existence.  Here is the irony about what is going on.  Most of the people, especially the younger Barack Obama disciples, do not even understand the origin of the Tea Party.  What I mean by that is they have no idea what the Boston Tea Party December 16, 1773 was or what it stood for.  My writings were inspired by trying to re-light the passion of the American Patriotic movement.  No No No.  I am not taking ANY credit for the new Tea Party movement….No.  But this is what I was hoping would happen.

It is very very clear that Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosie et. al. have been the most UN-American political party to ever hold court over the United States.  I feel very very confident that we will see the repercussion of this in the mid term elections in November of 2010.

As a follower of the Libertarian Party, I still have a lot of concerns about the mid term elections.  In the past Republicans have been responsible for massive tax spending along with Democrats. This is the core charge of of the new Tea Party movement. The Tea Party is about overpowering government both Republican and Democrat.

The currant issue is that if the Republicans regain control of the House and/or the Senate, will the politicians in control have learned that the people do not want huge, overpowering, dominant, controlling government and continue to make the same fatal mistakes as the currant and past administrations have made.

If we continue to elect the same ilk of self-centered, selfish, egotistical and unpatriotic people to office, the problem will continue to persist.  Maybe I am at the other end of the Utopian rainbow thinking that this could ever happen.  I don’t know. You can comment at anytime.

The next few months will be a political stage show that will continue to show the ineptness of the Barack Obama Tyranny.

I will make one comment on the constitutionality  of the Barack Obama Health insurance train wreck that was forced down the throats of US Citizens against our will.

If we read the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution, It is very easy to see that Barack Obama clearly disregarded the Constitution of the United States of America.  The main point is forcing people to buy health insurance against their will.

TENTH AMENDMENT

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution,

nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the

States respectively, or to the people.”

I believe that the Supreme Court will eventually have to hear this case. If they refuse then it will be very apparent that Barack Obama has single handedly destroyed the core reason that the United States even exists.  Remember that the Reason that the United States exists was to separate us from the controls of the British Parliament.  The US Constitution was written to maintain this country’s autonomy from British Rule and the Taxes imposed upon the residents of the 13 original colonies.

If the Supreme Court hears this case that should be named. “The People of the United States Vs. Barack Obama”.

If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Barack Obama, It will be very obvious that something happened behind the scenes. What could that be that would happen?

Can a US Supreme Court justice be impeached and removed from office?

The answer is yes.

“Under normal circumstances, a Supreme Court justice is awarded a lifetime commission.

A Supreme Court Justice may be impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office if convicted in a Senate trial, but only for the same types of offenses that would trigger impeachment proceedings for any other government official under Article I and II of the Constitution.

Section 1 of Article III states that judges of Article III courts shall hold their offices “during good behavior.” “The phrase “good behavior” has been interpreted by the courts to equate to the same level of seriousness the ‘high crimes and misdemeanors” encompasses.

In addition, any federal judge may prosecuted in the criminal courts for criminal activity. If found guilty of a crime in a federal district court, the justice would face the same type of sentencing any other criminal defendant would. The district court could not remove him/her from the Bench. However, any justice found guilty in the criminal courts of any felony would certainly be impeached and, if found guilty, removed from office.

In the United States, impeachment is most often used to remove corrupt lower-court federal judges from office, but it’s not unusual to find disgruntled special interest groups circulating petitions on the internet calling for the impeachment of one or all members of the High Court.”

Remember what I have posted before.  I am originally from Chicago and I grew up witnessing some of the most corrupt Chicago Democratic politics on the face of the earth.

Is the threat of Impeachment enough to sway the vote of a Supreme Court Justice?  I’ll let you answer that question. I will leave that up to you to do the research on that scenario.

I highly doubt that the Supreme Court will come to a decision while Barack Obama is still in office as I think this will take quite some time in the court to come to a decision.

However, if the case of “The People of the United States Vs. Barack Obama” comes before the court and is ruled in his favor before he leaves office then it will be very apparent that the corrupt Chicago politics has even influenced the highest court in the United States.  If that happens, all is lost for the autonomy and sovereignty of this country is forever damaged without the possibility of repair.

One last observation:

John Kennedy, a true Democrat: “Ask not what your country can do for you, rather ask what you can do for your country.”

Barack Obama, a true Marxist Socialist:  Barack Obama continues to tell us what our county will do for us.  All we have to do is do as Barack Obama says and pay taxes and the US Government will take care of everything else. The citizens do not have to do anything else for the US Government.

California, The Unions, Education and The Democratic Party: Catalyst for Tea Parties on July 4th 2009. May 23, 2009

The events that are unfolding in California today (5/23/09) are unprecedented and will affect every state in The United States of America. The people have spoken and they have said “NO MORE NEW TAXES” A catalyst for a perfect storm on Tea Party Day July 4th, 2009.

What has transpired over the years in California that I have been in here (1980) is nothing less than tragic.

I moved to a state that was relatively easy to get a job if you really wanted one. If you didn’t want to work and wanted to be on welfare it was a lot more difficult to accomplish that goal.

California was led by the Democratic party from a land of sunshine, plenty of work and an occasional earthquake to a land of excruciating high taxes, huge numbers of illegal immigrants, easy welfare accommodations for anyone, strong control by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and SCAQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District) and radically powerful, strong unions that have crippled the work force with a total disregard or understanding of how the economy works.  Every day now there are protests in the streets by these unions demanding that their particular financial interests should be continually supported by the California government that is fiscally broken. They fail to see that the economy in California has completely collapsed.

Due to the Democratic mantra of  “Tax and Spend” California has become the most unfriendly environment for both small and large businesses to flourish in. Consequently a lot of businesses have closed or have left California for other states and more than likely other countries.

An example of this is when Lockeed closed down it’s Burbank facilities instantly putting 15,000 people out of work.  That is the figure just for Lockeed. It doesn’t address all the subcontractors for small parts and materials that went into the building of the aircraft in that facility.

Another example of that is the General Motors Plant in Van Nuys, CA.  Built in 1947 and closed in 1992.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Nuys_Assembly

This plant towards the end built some of the worst cars ever assembled by General Motors. The Chevrolet Corvair, Camaro, Nova and Firebird.

While it is true that the plant was old, the property and the location were ideal for GM to build cars specifically for the California market.  With some effort the palnt could have been rebuilt and modified for newer assembly line could have been built. How ever the decision was made to move this assembly plant to Sainte-Thérèse Assembly in Quebec, Canada.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Therese_Assembly

So the issue at hand is jobs. As I have written about in the past, government does not create jobs. private enterprise creates jobs. The Democrats have completely damaged the business environment here in California. In the process of damaging the business environment the Democrats have diminished the tax base dramatically at the same time they have tried to make up for the lack jobs by huge tax rates for the people that still have jobs and businesses that are still open. The squeeze has to end somewhere or sometime and that somewhere and sometime is now.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090522/ap_on_re_us/us_california_day_of_reckoning

I voted for Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) hoping that he could get the job done.  In the beginning he was doing a great job.  But the Democrats saw his power and popularity as a threat and stone walled his every move and he finally capitulated to the Democrats and agreed to raise State Income Taxes, DMV (Department of Motor Vehicle) taxes, and State Sales Tax which is the most destructive tax a legislator could ever raise.  This has exacerbated the crumbling economy here in California.

As long as California is a Democratically controlled state it will never ever regain the grand status that has left us in the late 70’s and the 80’s. The Democratic stranglehold on the State of California will be very hard to break because of two simple facts. 1. The number of business owners that would lobby against the Democrats is dwindling. The number of employees that expect their employers to provide all kind of services for free greatly out number the employers. 2. The number of people that expect the California Government to provide everything for free is in control of who is put in office.

In fact California is so damaged that there is serious discussion about rewriting the California Constitution.  The California Constitution is not broken, the Democratic party that is interpreting the California Constitution is broken.

How is rewriting the California Constitution going to help the people of California get new jobs created by new companies that start and flourish and old companies that expand and grow and hire people?

I’m sure that with the state of California being run by Democrats, the “New and Improved” version of the California Constitution will be so severely flawed and skewed towards the Democratic mantra of “Tax & Spend” that the State of California will just continue to deteriorate at a much greatly increased speed.

Here is the next thing to think about. California has always been on the leading edge of trends that eventually move through out the rest of the states. If the California Constitution gets re-written will the following happen?

1. Will the Democrats in the other 49 states try to rewrite their own states constituion?

2. Will Barack Obama and the Obama Administration try to rewrite the US Constitution making the United States an even greater ‘Land of Entitlement”? Thus creating a land that contains a plethora of welfare available to anyone from the United States or any other country just by asking for it and not proving that an individual really needs welfare funds to begin with?

For some reason in past years there has been a fairly complex and sometimes efficient system of checks and balances between the Democrats and the Republicans.  But all that has changed with the deteriorating economy.

I have a comment about education in California.  I understand and I am in sympathy of what is happening in the schools with the cutbacks and overcrowding.  But here is a question. Do you remember what John Kennedy said” “Ask not what your country can do for you, Rather ask what you can do for your country!” I have to admit for a Democrat he was connected to reality more than any other Democrat or Republican for that matter by saying this.

So here is my point.  When some one decides to have a child, the responsibility of education should be partially funded by the individuals that have children that are being taught in the primarily the K-12 education system.  Junior Colleges and State colleges are already paying tuition. To believe that education can be completely funded by state and local property taxes is absurd.  I believe that the parents of these children should pay something towards enrollment for students.  This tuition payed can only be used in that school that the tuition was payed to.  Not to all the schools in the district. Maybe it is a small amount to subsidize, but it is something that that will help ease the financial burden of the California educational system. Which leads to why I brought up John Kennedy’s famous statement. Not all property tax payers have children in the educational system especially older citizens. Why should the burden of funding people that have children in the system be places on people that are not using the system.  This is not to say that people that do not have children in the education system should not pay anything. That is not what I am saying.  What I’m saying is that the people that do have children in the education system have to pay some kind of a tuition to offset the shrinking tax revenue do to loss of jobs, poorer paying jobs that does not generate high volumes of income tax and of course the number of foreclosure on homes that is diminishing property taxes.  I do not know the numbers exactly but the logic is that the greater majority of people with children are renters and do not pay any property tax yet their children are in the schools.  The amount of property tax on a commercial apartment building doesn’t even come close to paying for all the kids in that building. OK so you ask why doesn’t the landlord pay higher taxes? Well the local county could raise taxes…..but guess what?  You are right.  Rent would go through the roof and people would not be able to afford the apartment that they are renting nor would they have a big enough deposit to move to a different building. In general raising taxes is always a bad thing.

It all goes back to what I believe.

If the Democrats can keep people poor, uneducated, unemployed and desperate they will always have a voter base.
