In Obama, Generational Decline and Liberalism Have Created a Monster

My Theory of Generational Decline


A successful and prosperous society brings with it the seeds of it's own destruction as ease, wealth and convenience spoils and weakens the work ethic of it's citizens. Offspring of prosperous parents won't have to struggle (and grow) as much as their parents. Subsequent generations become more and more complacent and more entitled as everyone enjoys the wealth built by previous generations.

But learning the lessons of life is critical to gaining wisdom. Hardship is the great teacher in life. And life is much harder than any mother ever told their children. And think about how important "tough love" is for raising children so that they understand the important and practical lessons of life: the need for a hard work and self-sufficiency, learning about money and budgeting, learning about the danger of debt and the responsibility to self, family and nation.  Without learning the hard lessons, subsequent generations become 'soft', ignorant, foolish and unwise from too much ease and where everything is provided to them without much/any hardship. 

It's no accident that the "greatest generation" in America is the generation who grew up in the severe hardship of the Great Depression of the 1930s and during the time where the US led the world in defeat of Nazi Germany and fascist Japan.  After WWII, these same people built the greatest economy the world has ever seen.  Ronald Reagan was the last of that greatest generation who rose to the highest office of the land.

The post WWII prosperity provided the money to support incomes and provide safety nets to the less fortunate and the elderly.  It also funded environmental remediation of our air and water. (Poorly performing economies are ecological disasters. Look no further than the USSR.)  But temporary safety nets become permanent (and irreversible) safety nets. The war on poverty is a good example.  It was started by LBJ to be a temporary leg-up for poor people -- mainly black folks.   Instead, it's become a permanent income support for millions. Politically, it can't be undone and has resulted in $21 Trillion of government spending in 50 years. Worse, these programs have actually "ruined" much of African American community.

Liberals, like the rest of us, are also the product of a undisciplined and permissive society and they want that the "less fortunate" to avoid the hard lessons of life.   They are all about handouts and government activism.  Liberals are children of permissive (and wealthy) parents who never had enough tough love. They never learn how to make and handle money for themselves, so they end up growing up irresponsible in money matters.  (Isn't that painfully obvious?)  Then, they join the Democratic party -- a political party who stands for buying getting votes by bribing people with handouts (usually money) to "help" people avoid the consequences of bad decisions and bad behavior.  It wins votes!  And because they are personally irresponsible in matters of money, these same people are irresponsible in management of the nation's money and debt.  Why do you think the Democrats could care less about the $7,000 Billion of new debt racked up in the Obama administration? They don't care! Obama has never seriously called for any spending cuts -- ever!

Democrats are happy to take advantage of hard times, because it allows them to extend more handouts to get more votes. They'd love to create a dependent society so that they can remain in power.  This continues until they run out of other people's money -- usually manifesting itself in inflation and/or crisis.

This is how society decays. Our society is declining rapidly now and only severe hardship will reverse it. And a foolish population will vote for more of the same (if they vote at all). We're seeing that in spades now.


Obama Is The Ultimate Example Of Liberalism Run Amok


Obama himself is the ultimate example of Liberal blindness; full of political correctness nonsense, ignorance and foolishness. He is very unwise since he's the ultimate example of having everything handed to him by affirmative action programs due to his special status of being a "somewhat intelligent black man". He's surfed though life on a wave of affirmative action programs and Liberal grants.  He's the ultimate example of never having learned the hard lessons of life -- having lived the perfect Liberal dream of unending handouts and giveaways without merit, cost or even much effort. He's grown up a 'slacker.' He's hardly ever had to hold a job or make a payroll.  He's never had to produce anything even to this day.

And he's never really learned from where all the benefits came.  He has no appreciation for how the wealth and productivity of our country's workforce and business community has enabled various safety nets and his own affirmative action benefits.  Like any good socialist, he is a class warrior that berates prosperous people even though those persons do everything right to become and stay prosperous.  I'm sure that he actually believes his own rhetoric!  This is why it's easy for him to bash business and extort from the prosperous. He's the ultimate product of an easy society: he doesn't know how anything works, he knows nothing of business, money or how real wealth is created through production, and he knows nothing about "tough love." He's the absolutely the last person in the world we should have in the Presidency.

Liberals have created a monster in Obama. And because of the effective propaganda efforts of Liberal media, this monster has made it into the White House.  He's the best of example of how generational decline endangers our nation.  Obama is the very embodiment of the "seeds of our own destruction."

Liberal Media's Pro-Black Racial Bias Has Costs

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a black astrophysicist by degree who has become a 'star' on television's 2nd rate reincarnation of TV series "Cosmos."  It's more than interesting that the network choose a black presenter when only about 2% of physical science PhDs in this country are African American

And he's not the only black man selected for a prominent role as a TV "expert" either.  Hakeem Oluseyi, a black astrophysicist, hosted 'Outrageous Acts of Science' and 'Alien Encounters' and "You Have Been Warned" on TV.

Tyson's and Oluseyi's promotion to prominent positions on TV are a clue to a wider effort by media to promote black persons as equal and high achieving -- a cultural "affirmative action" so to speak. Yeah, it's great that these men made it through graduate school, but media folks had to dig deep to find guy's like Tyson and Hakeem Oluseyi since there's so few.  Meanwhile there's 1000's of highly accomplished white astrophysicists.  

I don't have a beef with these two accomplished guys.  But why is the media trying so hard to shove things "black" down my throat?  And where's the Latinos?? 

Another example: Morgan Freeman is often cast as a scientific "expert" on TV shows even though he's strictly an actor with no scientific background.  Heck, Freeman also played a US President in Deep Impact.  Is this subtle "propaganda" by the big media companies?   Freeman played a scientific "expert" on the latest movie "Lucy."  Do you see a pattern?  Or am I crazy?

Other Media Company Racial Bias


I believe that there is a subtle propaganda effort underway to promote black Americans in the court of public opinion, a sort of affirmative action program by the media outlets.  They do this, in part, because blacks reliably back Liberal (Democratic) positions.  Blacks are only 1/8th of the population but are often one of three, or one of four on "panels" on TV shows on MSNBC and CNN for instance.  It's subtle.  And those over-represented blacks reliably tout Democratic positions to the glee of the media outlets.  Another important question:  where are the Latinos on TV??  There are significantly more Latinos in this country than black.

Another example of affirmative action by media outlets: everyone knows now that the elections of Obama were significantly due to Liberal media manipulation of public opinion in falsely painting Obama as a superior intellect with superior ideas.  It's completely untrue.  In fact, it could hardly be further from the truth.  Media supported him all along, pitched him 'softball' questions in interviews and supported the smearing of anything conservative or Republican.  The elections of Obama was a huge success for the Liberal media.   But his election has turned out to be a big loss for this country and the entire world.  Obama has proven to be a complete "empty suit" in regard to -- well -- just about everything.  He's a charlatan -- an actor playing a President on TV.  Obama's presidency will prove to be a near disaster. 

Neil deGrasse Tyson Caught Promoting Falsehoods


Not surprisingly, it turns out that Tyson's sophistication has limits when it comes to politics.  Or maybe he's not sophisticated at all?  Recently, he's had to (reluctantly) apologize when a dogged commentator on the Federalist website called him out for inaccurate statements about George Bush in his public addresses.

From Rich Lowry at Newsmax, Tyson said, in numerous public addresses, that right after Sept. 11, Bush asserted the superiority of "we" to "they" — i.e., Muslim fundamentalists — by quoting the Bible for the proposition "Our God is the God who named the stars."  You see, Tyson wanted to paint himself as "sophisticated" and denigrate Bush as being a moron by noting that 2/3rds of the stars have Arabic names.  But he is just dead wrong.  Bush never said such a thing.  In fact, Bush went out of his way to defend Islam after 9/11.  In short, `Tyson lied.

He finally and reluctantly "fessed up" to this falsehood only after being called out by Sean Davis at the Federalist.  His reluctant and half-hearted rationalizations were particularly annoying.  He has shown himself to be stubborn in his ignorance despite his advanced education. Does that sound like another familiar (black) occupant of the White House?

Like Tyson, Obama has proven to be arrogant, stubborn and wrong.  Like Tyson, Obama can not say "I'm sorry."   At least Tyson mainly sticks to scientific issues, but tows a Liberal line in areas of politics and global warming.  That's why he's on TV!  

And media manipulation is why we have to put up with Obama's staggering incompetence!

Other Media Pro-Black Racial Bias


You saw pro-black media bias again with Michael Brown coverage in Ferguson following the same meme as Trayvon Martin in Florida.  Both were portrayed as demur, innocent, baby-faced angels with no basis in fact.   It turns out that Trayvon might have been an angel compared to thug Brown. 

The Trayvon Martin "controversy" was silenced by 6 thoughtful white women who sent the race baiters packing (except for racist Holder who vowed further Federal prosecution of Zimmerman).

The whole Ferguson story also fell apart with egg on every black leader's face, including Holder and Obama.  (Gee, what's new?)  The media and race-baiters fell silent when details emerged that Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson had just robbed a convenience store and roughed-up the clerk immediately prior to Brown attacking officer Wilson.  But ABC Nightly news continued the "Saint Michael" meme well past the revelations.  It became quickly clear that Brown was WAY out of control and officer Wilson had to defend himself. 

All of this is an attempt to cover-up the fact we have a huge ongoing black crime wave primarily affecting other black citizens. Younger black men are committing crimes at 10 times the rate of whites and 7 times the rate of whites for all black men.  Black men are committing more than 50% violent and gun crimes despite being only 6% of the population.  Black men outnumber white men in prisons!  Black men are derelict dads too with some 80% of young black kids abandoned by their deadbeat dads.  And it didn't use to be that way.  But you'll never hear this reported anywhere in the liberal media.

Because of all of this media white-washing, no constructive conversations can be made, nothing constructive is done and the desperate collapse of black culture in this country continues unabated and unimproved.  Meanwhile we are forced to watch the Obama presidency collapse as well.

'Nice Sounding' Liberalism Leads to a Police State

Inside every Liberal lurks a totalitarian.  Some examples:

Elizabeth Warren recently tweeted angrily that every Republican in the House voted against a bill demanding equal pay for equal work for women:

It sounds so good, right?  Who would be against equal pay for equal work?  Well, according to Elizabeth Warren, it's evil Republicans who are "waging a war on women" according to the Democrats popular talking point.  

But who is going to enforce a law like this?  Who's going to determine whether two jobs are identical in scope?  Who's going to weigh differences in seniority or levels of experience? 

Equal Pay Police


Democrat's answer to these questions is that Federal bureaucrats (with zero business experience) would "police" the millions of businesses in America to make these determinations.  First, the cost of such a program will be huge. Second, trusting any Federal employee to supplant the judgement of business owners is absurd.  It should be plainly clear by now how poorly the "government" does at anything and everything.  Can you imagine the stifling effect on business and jobs?  Such an "equal pay" bureaucracy would bring far worse consequences than supposedly unequal pay.  The cure is worse than the disease!

The million dollar question is whether Elizabeth Warren actually believes such a law is in the best interest of the country, or whether she's trying to smear Republicans.  If she really believes it, then she and most other Democrats are intellectually deficient.  If she's complicit in political smearing, then shame on the Democrats. Either way, it's not good.

Carbon Police


Everyone knows that the Democrats are emotional and especially hysterical when it comes to global warming.  Despite relatively mild effects of warming, Democrats would love to pass a Cap and Trade carbon regulation scheme even though such a scheme wouldn't solve a thing except raise huge tax revenue and expand the Federal bureaucracy.  Cap and trade would allow the continued rise of CO2 in the atmosphere at current rates.  It would really be a "cap and tax" scheme and would do nothing to help the climate.

Liberals pretend to be unaware that you'd have to absolutely reduce CO2 emissions by over 50% just to halt the rise of CO2 in the atmosphere. The cost to do so would bankrupt us, so it's not going to happen.  And other big emitting countries like China will never commit economic suicide like the Democrats would like to do.  And it'll have to be nuclear energy that will have to carry the lion's share of power generation in this country if we are to have a low-carbon future.  But wait, Democrats are against that too!

Can you imagine "carbon police" going around to 10,000's of businesses in various local communities checking for carbon emissions?  It would take another huge and expensive Federal bureaucracy.  And it would be a radical intrusion of the Federal government into local matters. It would be totally unconstitutional.   But Democrats like to ignore our Constitution.  They don't seem to understand that we had a revolution long ago to overturn capricious authority.

Already the EPA, incorrectly given too much power by the courts to regulate CO2, is already over-regulating and harming the economy on a false premise: that CO2 at 400 parts per million concentration is "harmful or threatening to human health." And CO2 emissions are already dropping in the US without the EPA thanks to the natural gas fracking boom.  US courts can not be trusted to reign-in ever-expanding and unconstitutional Federal power into state and local issues even under false pretenses.

Hate Speech Police


51% of Democrats in a recent poll are in favor criminalizing "hate speech".  Democrats would like that, but what happens when the opposition party returns to power and use the same law to go after the Democratic minority??    If such a law were passed, you would have to add "hate-speech police" to our growing list of Federal bureaucrats running riot over our individual freedoms.  Who's going to decide what constitutes hate speech?  Are we going to put "haters" in jail?  Is calling Obama a jerk hate speech?  But Republicans won't do that. They'll repeal any such measure because they at least understand our Constitution and the importance of guaranteed freedoms.

Death Panels


One of reported architects of the ObamaCare disaster, Ezekiel Emanuel (Rahm Emanuel's brother), recently wrote an article in The Atlantic professing his desire to die at 75 years old.  He's not a bad guy, but Democrats like him are preparing the public for their inevitable "death panel" decisions that will limit Federal expenditures for elderly patients due to "budget concerns."  But this is precisely what happens when the Federal government intrudes in the healthcare industry.  Remember, death panels are now a reality and have Democrat's fingerprints all over it.   ObamaCare and government control of the insurance market is a royal road to the intrusion of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats into the most important aspects of our lives.

Can't you see where Liberalism and Democrats are headed?   Liberalism sounds so good, but the results are disastrous and even Orwellian.

Buy Low and Sell High; Time to Sell Stocks?

You agree with the adage "buy low and sell high" right?   Well, don't forget to sell.  US stocks are expensive and current valuations have rarely been higher. 

When the market PE reaches 20, it's time to sell.  That's where we are today.  Have a look at the following chart from Acting Man blog:


Stock market valuations have only been higher about 2% of the time during last 90 years.   The odds are in favor of the house.  Be forewarned.

Collapse Of Black Families, Violence and Poverty

From Walter Williams at Townhall:
The poverty rate among blacks is 36 percent. Most black poverty is found in female-headed households. The poverty rate among black married couples has been in single digits since 1994 and is about 8 percent today. The black illegitimacy rate is 75 percent, and in some cities, it's 90 percent. But if that's a legacy of slavery, it must have skipped several generations, because in the 1940s, unwed births hovered around 14 percent.
 Along with the decline of the black family comes anti-social behavior, manifested by high crime rates. Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered (out of a total of about 14,000 victims). Ninety-four percent of the time, the murderer is another black person. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94 percent figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks. Though blacks are 13 percent of the nation's population, they account for more than 50 percent of homicide victims. Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is six times that of whites, and in some cities, it's 22 times that of whites.
There is little intelligent dialogue anywhere in the media to discuss what it might take to put black families back together.  In lieu of intelligent dialogue, black "leaders" only recite tired grievances that aren't true anymore.  The black family was intact in 1960.  The collapse of black families is a recent phenomena dating from about the "Great Society" and War on Poverty days of the Johnson administration.  Imagine that?  The war on poverty hasn't help reduce poverty.  For example, housing projects concentrated blacks in public housing projects in inner cities. Those blacks, having no ownership pride in that housing, caused their neighborhoods to decay which caused "white flight" and business flight.  Business flight in turn means no employment opportunities. 

Also, when Liberals give more aid to single mothers because they are single, it results in more single mothers!  Or, if you give credits based on the number of children rather than the presence of a father, you get children without fathers.  The debate becomes: how to give aid to married couples to discourage single status? 

For solutions, how about parallel vocational high schools to teach basic reading, arithmetic and writing but also job skills for those not on the college path?  This last concept could be expanded to include programs in arts; writing, performing arts, visual arts, and music.

Speaking of education, how about eliminating public unions--especially teacher unions that end up harming minorities the worst.  How do I know this?  Read about the court in California striking down union tenure policies for hurting minorities the most:
 A California judge ruled Tuesday that teacher tenure laws deprived students of their right to an education under the State Constitution and violated their civil rights. The decision hands teachers’ unions a major defeat in a landmark case, one that could radically alter how California teachers are hired and fired and prompt challenges to tenure laws in other states.
 “Substantial evidence presented makes it clear to this court that the challenged statutes disproportionately affect poor and/or minority students,” Judge Rolf M. Treu of Los Angeles Superior Court wrote in the ruling. “The evidence is compelling. Indeed, it shocks the conscience.”
Thirdly, end the criminalization of marijuana and release all the young (black) men in prison for possession and related non-violent crimes. That incarceration is making hard core criminals out of these young men.  Lastly, eliminate the Federal minimum wage guidance altogether.  The government needs to get out of the wage setting business including repealing the Bacon Davis Act which shuts out workers in favor of union workers. The higher the minimum wage, the less jobs exist for entry level young people.  And those entry level jobs are key in gaining skill and experience.  Marco Rubio has proposed a wage subsidy instead of a minimum wage and to replace the Earned Income Tax Credit idea.

A decent article in The Federalist gives some good advice to helping minorities and stopping the black cultural collapse.  But don't expect Democrats to help black people because they would oppose much of the ideas that would help.  This is because the answers that address collapsing families is 1) improve education by promoting LESS unionism in public schools (at least), 2) improve the economy to repatriate manufacturing by reforming and lowering corporate taxes, by less regulation and less big gov't.  Do these sound like Democratic policies?  3) Get the government out of the wage setting business especially the prescription of a too-high minimum wage for inner cities, 4) more local micro-financing (and training) to help people set-up small market places and food courts, and 5) end the drug war against marijuana and free associated prisoners.

One Chart to Explain Our Broken Health Care System

In my blog Obama Doubles Down on a Broken System,  I suggest that we have high medical cost inflation because everyone in the medical business is using other people's money.  Also, increasing government spending is the biggest driver of medical cost inflation because the government is completely insensitive to prices (but people are).   I said the following:
"Insurance money feels a lot like "free money" to both patients and medical businesses. Hospitals and doctors can literally never spend enough to insure the survival of everyone. It's no wonder medical cost inflation is pricing medical services out of reach! Eventually patients are priced out of the insurance market and can no longer afford coverage or medical services at all. This is where we are today.

So, most can agree that the system is broke because market and normal cost forces are not in play. I've made the argument in my blog that high deductible policies coupled with health savings plans put some consumer "skin in the game." You can understand this when you consider that the ultimate market pricing system would be medical care services are paid only by cash!"
Thailand has a cash-market medical business (not yet dominated by health insurance company spending or government spending) and their medical costs are from 5 to 10 times cheaper than the same services in the US.

Well, here's evidence of the trend that only worsens in the years ahead since the US government spending in the medical service market goes ever higher. See the following chart from David Stockman's Contra Corner:

Only lower government spending in the medical market and more consumer "skin in the game" (out of pocket spending) via high deductible policies and HSAs will reverse price inflation trends.  ObamaCare has and will further increase government spending and therefore increase prices.  We face a vicious (and upward) cost spiral with ObamaCare -- proving that everything said to promote the law is flawed and/or lies.

Obama in Denial About Islam

I never listen to a single word spoken by Obama, but it is reported (and confirmed by the text of his speech) that he said the following last night:
“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
So, there you have in a nutshell one of Obama's many problems.  First, he's WRONG!  Will he claim that Al Qaeda is not Islamic?  How about Hamas?  How about the Taliban, Hezbollah, Boko Haram??

He is blind to the worldwide problem that is Islam.  He's blind to a lot of things.  He's basically a Muslim sympathizer. 

The so-called religion of peace is anything but.  Let's be clear, Islam is the only religion (ideology) in the world that prescribes violence against other people who are "unbelievers". There are some 109 verses prescribing violent "war" against those who oppose Islamic "rule."  In fact there are few counterbalancing views of tolerance of others in the Quran.  There's no "turn the other cheek" in Islam!

See here for a list of attacks by Muslim believers since September 11, 2001.  The Islam inspired death toll is up to nearly 24,000 people worldwide since Sept 11, 2001.

What's the point of continuing to pretend that Islam is a religion?  Islam is not a religion but a violent, fascist cult based on the teachings of a mentally ill, violent, murdering, pedophilic, misogynist named Muhammad.
 
Is it any wonder that Islam is one screwed-up "religion"?   It's a sad joke.

Liberals Emotional, Unprincipled; Unfit to Govern

The difference between Conservatives and Liberals increasingly shows the contrast of emotional reacting vs rational thinking.  Think about it.  Liberals are mostly from the 'fuzzy' professions of art, journalism, acting, etc.  Conservatives, for example, are found in the ranks of engineers and the business community.  Nearly all of my engineering friends are conservative since we are all about rational analysis and a sharp focus on objective facts and figures.  Liberals are found in the "fuzzy" artistic community.  It's not surprising that Hollywood actors are nearly universally Liberal.  And journalism is a "liberal arts" major.  People of faith are conservative because they realize that Liberals are trying to substitute a religion of big government for a true religious faith (a la Communism). 

Liberals are much more volatile, emotional and even hysterical than Conservatives. This makes them unfit to govern.  A good perfect example comes just today as DNC chairwoman Deborah Wasserman Schultz went completely hysterical against mild-mannered Wisconsin governor Scott Walker.  From Townhall, she said:
"Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. But that is reality." Wasserman Schultz added: "What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch."
Bashing Walker is really hysterical. What did Walker ever do to Schultz?  Scott Walker is a gentlemen; a mild-mannered and rational governor who has well-managed his state government, balanced budgets and even lowered taxes in Wisconsin.  He is not controversial.  He's a competent governor who recently won a recall election vote with a higher margin than his first election results despite a Liberal smear campaign.  So, the people of Wisconsin have spoken an spoken loudly.  Walker's only problem is that he's a real threat to the Democrats in 2016.  

Oh, did I mention that Deborah Wasserman Schultz, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is a professional artist?  (Look it up here)  Perfect!  Being an artist means that she's imminently qualified to define public policy objectives and economic strategies for our great nation!   Can you see why Democrats have run this country off the rails?  Obama never even had a job.

The real objective of the screeching, hysterical Democrats is to lie, obfuscate and falsely smear any solid Republican who might be a threat in the next election.  Remember how the liberal media obsessed about "bridgegate" in New Jersey -- all to implicate Chris Christie?  It was the top "news" on national media for weeks while the real and serious problems caused by Obama and the Democrats went to page 5!!   Now comes the ridiculous politically-motivated indictment of Rick Perry.  It's a complete joke! Even Liberal commentators agree that it's frivolous. The Democrats don't care whether anything is true or not.  They are going to smear by any measure because they know the compliant media will amplify things.  It's despicable.  It's all about dirty tricks.  Liberalism is only imposed by lies and tricks, since rational voters in the US will ultimately not choose hyperactive big government and government control on it's own.  Remember, big government is the Democrat's false idol.

More Examples of Hysteria and Emotional Democrats- Unfit to Govern


For another example of Liberal hysterical and irrational thinking, take global warming.  Liberals are screeching Malthusians and Chicken Little's when it comes to the relatively mild effects of global warming.  Their cries are all emotion and not based on facts.  In fact, they are thoroughly annoyed by "inconvenient facts" that contradict their collective hysteria.  Liberals are positively hyperventilating to enact big government carbon monitoring and taxation even though that wouldn't change ANYTHING except to make government bigger and harm the economy and job market.  They would rather ruin the economy based on their emotions rather than facts.  Liberals, as usual, don't know the key facts(s): that the amount of carbon dioxide emissions reductions required to halt the rise of CO2 in the atmosphere is so large (50%) that it's not possible and the cost to do so is impossibly high.  The cost to mitigate the relatively benign effects of warming are 10,000 times cheaper.

Look at the liberals screeching for gun control but ignore the facts about who commit gun crimes. They'd rather ignore the Constitution than face the REAL problem. The real problem is black men, at 6% of the population, who are committing the majority of gun crimes nationwide.  But radical political correctness, another characteristic of the current liberal crowd, prevents any mention of these "inconvenient" facts.    Black men are committing about 7,000 murders per year out of 14,000 total or more than 120 per week -- far eclipsing the number of headline massacres like Columbine.  Discussions of seizing guns from black men, are strictly verboten!  It might violate their civil rights?  What about the victim's rights?

Take a look at Liberal, Liberal media and black emotional response to Trayon Martin and Michael Brown shootings.  They jump to conclusions and wrong ones at that.  Blacks, who identify with Democratic party at a 95% rate, have proven to be emotional hotheads who would lynch any white police officer even reported of killing a black man -- regardless of facts or fault.  Complete lawlessness and hysteria were on display in Ferguson.  Then we find out that every black man involved in the Michael Brown shooting is a liar, thief or thug.  

Democrats Have Shifted Hard Left Since JFK -- Unfit to Govern


It didn't used to be this way. The difference between the Democratic and Republican party used to be very small and both parties were capable of governing. After all, it was JFK called on people to ask what they can do for their country, not what their country can do for them. JFK would be considered a solid conservative now as he was a supply-side tax cutter and staunch foe of Communism -- not unlike Ron Reagan.

Democrats Out of Touch With America; Punish Them in November

Obama and Democrats are out of touch with America.

This weekend, Biden tried to give a rousing speech to "take back our nation."  Huh?  The comment was in support of bashing the rich and promoting more unionism presumably to fire-up the Democratic union base.  Bashing of the rich by the rich is getting old and sounds ever more hollow.

And there's hardly any unionism left in the US private sector as union's have done more than their share in chasing US jobs away to other parts of the world.  And we wonder why the economy is crappy?  Union membership in the private sector is down to 11%.

The core of unionism is now in the public sector at some 40% and they sucking big time from the hind tit of the taxpayers.  From USA Today, federal employee total compensation has grown 36.9% since 2000 after adjusting for inflation, compared with 8.8% for private workers.  Every extra dollar given unionized government workers in either benefits or pay, compared to the private sector, is an extortion of the US taxpayer.   Government worker benefits are now much higher than the private sector.   Ban public unions!

Obama, Biden and the Democrats are way out of touch with the American people.

Regarding Unionism, Americans want to reverse it.  71% of Americans say they would vote for right-to-work laws if they had a vote, according to Gallup.   Yeah, it's time to take back our nation alright!

Obama's approval rating is holding steady at 40% but he is deeper underwater with Independents and Republicans.  A CNN poll in August revealed that 33% of people polled wanted Obama impeached.

Obama's inane strategy of ignoring the legislature is an affront to about 1/2 the nation represented by the Republican majority in the House.  He thinks that going to work?  He's insane and deserves impeachment based on impaired mental capacity!!  Yeah, and he's so brilliant.  My ass!

About 70% of the people in this country have routinely polled to disapprove of the direction of the country.  

Polls shows 61% of Americans disapprove of Obama's collapsing foreign policy.  Only 33% approve.  Duh, he's a frigging idiot!   The 33% that approve are either brain dead or mentally impaired!   Now you can see that 33% approval is really ZERO percent approval because that 33% is so stupid that their opinion is complete dog shit! 

Only 42% of Americans approve of Obama's handling of the economy. (So, that's about 11% approval since 33% is really 0%).   Six years after the bottom of the last recession, about 50% of Americans say that the US is still in recession.  Six years after Obama,  Gallup says that in August only 38% of Americans said the economy is getting better, while 56% said the economy is getting worse.

Obama and Democrats have (once again) proven themselves to be clueless on creating growth of any kind other than the growth of debt and taxes!  And yes, there's a connection between low growth and high debt and taxes!  But Democrats are immune from facts and the lessons of history.

From Daily Caller, "70 percent of independents and 92 percent of Republicans said in early August that “undocumented immigrants [are] a burden on the US economy,” according to the polls by Reuters and Ipsos."  Of course these people are a burden to our communities. They have little to offer, we don't have any/many low skilled jobs,  they won't pay taxes, they certainly can't afford our Obama-inflated medical costs.

As a retired American, I'm seriously considering moving to Mexico or Costa Rica to escape Obama's and Democrat's damage!   And I'm relatively well off!  And these people, who absolutely nothing, want to come here??  I'm considering retiring to a place like Guadalajara, Mexico because I don't want to pay for high medical insurance costs or the dramatically rising prices of food and rent caused by our foolish central bank hellbent on re-inflating old bubbles!

The President and Democrats have always been underwater in regard to ObamaCare.   54% disapprove of the law and only 40% approve.  ObamaCare is as unpopular as ever as it's caused healthcare costs to rocket higher -- putting healthcare out of reach for more Americans. With the government spending more for health care, and the government completely insensitive to prices, expect this increased marginal spending to inflate costs ever higher until the nation is bankrupt.  After all, we're told that the ObamaCare disaster can't be overturned, right?

Wrong!  Punish the arrogant fools!!  All of them!!

Obama is Inept and Strategy-Less in Foreign Policy and Everything Else

The other day, Obama was once again nationally televised by the fawning media; flapping his lips and delivered yet another "nothing burger" about foreign policy. He admitted that he "doesn't have a strategy" with regard to Jihadists in the middle east making astonishing territorial gains in Syria and Iraq. The absence of any US advisers in Iraq has contributed to the loss of all of the hard-fought gains of the Iraq war -- in front of our very eyes.

Obama may not have a strategy but ISIS has one: to kill as many Americans (and Shiites) as possible.

Obama can't even correctly name the enemy or even call a spade a spade. If you can't correctly identify the problem, you'll never have the correct solution. Political correctness is the problem with him. He is in complete denial about Islam itself.  Hint: it's not just the extremists either. The vast majority of Muslim communities are generally sympathetic, and therefore complicit with, Jihadis and their murders.

Remember when the massacre of Ft. Hood was an example of “workplace violence”? When we were told core al-Qaeda was “decimated”? And how al Qaeda/Jihadists were the “jayvee team”? And how President Obama would bring a “new beginning” based on “mutual respect” with the Arab and Islamic world?

Do you still recall when the president promised he would punish Syria if it crossed the “red line” of using chemical weapons?  Remember when our official "policy" in Syria was "Assad must go".   When we were assured that the “tide of war is receding”?

The equally brain dead and "fawning" media still thinks that Obama is relevant and has something to offer. The sad truth is that he's never had anything to offer-- ever. He has NEVER offered any useful details regarding any of his legislative "successes" For example, he never offered anything in the crafting of ObamaCare. All along, he's delegated everything to the corrupt and highly incompetent Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. He never wrote a paper at the Harvard Law Review either. He never did anything of note in his long 150 day career as a US Senator either. I don't think this idiot ever had a job.

He has nothing to offer. This emperor has no clothes, but Sshhhh!, don't tell anyone (or you'll be labeled racist)!

In foreign policy, we're finding out what happens when America is not providing accustomed leadership in the world. I'm talking about diplomatic leadership backed by a well-communicated strategy. The US used to stand for law and order, democracy (however imperfect), freedom and freeing peoples from oppression. But bonehead Obama typically sides with the law breakers, oppressors and trouble-makers. Obama hates Netanyahu, but loves Rouhani, He hates Britain but loves Putin's Russia, He sided with Chavista Manual Zelaya who was ousted by Honduras's Supreme Court. He sides with illegal aliens and against enforcing existing laws. Can you see the pattern?

Democrats Want Unlimited Immigration & Push Bill To Allow Illegals to Vote NOW

The Left has a plan to allow unrestricted illegal immigration -- which is already underway.  That much is clear.  Obama and fellow Democrats have started a stampede of illegal immigration by loose talk of imminent amnesty, abuse of asylum rules and refusal to enforce existing immigration laws.   Border patrols are now overwhelmed and have been told to 'stand down.'  In fact, Obama and Democrats have INTENTIONALLY created a humanitarian immigration crisis.    And we know crises need yet more government involvement!!  You get it??   You get the Leftist agenda and methods?? 

It's absolutely shameful how our nation and rule of law is being decimated before our very eyes.  God help us.  Punish these people -- everyone of them -- in November!  And I can't believe Obama's approval rating is still in the 40s!!  Apparently 40+% of the population is brain dead.

Ultimately, the Left hopes to ultimately hook these immigrants on a variety of government benefits to make them Democratic voters for life.  They can't wait!  What you may not know is that they intend to let the illegals vote right away -- regardless of citizenship or status.    It's all happening under our noses.

In an apparent move to attract even more illegals to our borders, Democrats in New York state are trying to "cash in" now and allow undocumented persons to vote and to receive a variety of government benefits -- regardless of status.  Expect more of this from Blue States unless the voters in this country wake up!  From Breitbart:
Millions of illegal immigrants could soon become legal "state citizens" in New York thanks to a new proposed bill. If passed, the legislation would allow undocumented immigrants living in the state to receive a slew of benefits administered by the state including drivers licenses, in-state tuition, voting rights, and Medicaid.

The bill was introduced on Monday, according to New York Daily News. It would supposedly only apply to illegal immigrants with no criminal history who can prove they have lived and paid taxes in New York for three years. In total, an estimated 2.7 million individuals would reap benefits as a result of the legislation.
Not only that, the US government is fighting any State that demands voters to produce identification and prove that the voter is compliant with immigrant law.  What seems reasonable to you and me is an anathema to the irresponsible Democrats.

 From Fox News:
The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver will hear arguments Monday in an appeal filed by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

The agency is seeking to overturn a federal judge's order that the commission modify a federal form to include special instructions requiring Kansas and Arizona residents to provide citizenship documentation when they register to vote.
Democrat's real goal is to get more low IQ, low-information voters to vote Democratic by hooking them on "free stuff" and "assistance" and subsidies.  Of course they already will get "free" education for their children, "free" medical care at emergency rooms.  After all, low- information and low IQ (and aggrieved) voters are the heart of the Democratic party.  Never mind asking who's paying the bills.  Who pays is NEVER the concern of Democrats since they can always squeeze the "wealthy" for more money.

It's literally insane NOT to validate voter ID and proper immigration documentation.

Administration Abusing Asylum Rules in Latest Push To Eliminate Borders

A nation without borders is not a nation.

But erasing our southern border is exactly what the Democrats, completely in bed with the ignorant fool Obama, are doing.  Democrats deserve to be slaughtered at the ballot box this autumn.

From Breitbart,
On Tuesday a federal immigration board ruled that a married Guatemalan woman, fleeing a violent husband back home, could obtain political asylum.
Since when did domestic violence become a political persecution??  Obama, by weakening rules, refusing to enforce existing immigration laws, has created our border anarchy.  Asylum abuse just gets keeps getting worse.  By opening the doors to women who can just claim that she has an abusive husband, she automatically gets to stay in the US.  No one can prove or disprove these claims.  It's just another step toward total anarchy and erasing our southern border!  All of these people will get to stay in the US.

Get ready for a surge of Guatemalan women across our borders -- a surge designed to INTENTIONALLY overwhelm our border administrators.  Already border patrols are overwhelmed due to caring for the surge of children and young adults due to Obama refusing to deport children.  Is he insane?  Is there no limit to the irresponsibility of Democrats??   Apparently not.  

Regarding the widespread Asylum fraud, a note from the Washington Times,
 According to the Judiciary Committee’s numbers, 65 percent of unaccompanied children’s asylum applications are approved by the initial asylum officer so far in 2014.
There are no unusual circumstances in Central America that require mass asylum. There are no tyrannical dictators persecuting their peoples. All of these asylum requests are fraudulent.  And for asylums officers to approve ANY of them is just another example of lax immigration law enforcement that is CAUSING the massive throngs at our border.

Now the Anarchists in the White House are hatching a plan to bring more people from Honduras due to "violence" there. From the New York Times,
The Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.
If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds.
There's been violence and rampant criminality in Honduras for ages -- nothing new here. We can't even take care of our own people and our own problems!   Punish the Democrats in November!!
