Supercommittee's plan to failure.......

 Compliments to Bloomberg for stating the obvious. Stacking the committee with progressives on the

left, and avid anti-federalists on the right guaranteed this nation that Washington continues to work for it's own

 self interests, and not a nation teetering on financial collapse. The defeat of the Balanced Budget Amendment

in Congress should have been a fore warning of the committees impending failure. Both sides of the aisle have

made a mockery of our political process....again.

“Greasing the Solar Skids,” Editorial, Nov. 19 NYPost

My Response to Editorial:

The Issue: A $1.4 billion federal loan guarantee for a “green jobs” firm linked to Robert Kennedy Jr.
***
If this isn’t cronyism at its worst, what is (“Greasing the Solar Skids,” Editorial, Nov. 19)?
President Obama’s modus operandi seems to be giving away taxpayer dollars without hope of success. And his affixing the name of Robert Kennedy Jr. to another solar flare-up is just one more example of Obama’s lack of integrity.
These are the very elements of character that American voters seem to be overlooking at the ballot box.
The duplicity between the US Department of Energy and former VantagePoint official Sanjay Wagle raises the stink level to 10.
Now that Obama’s dirty dealing has put the BrightSource spotlight on one of America’s “royal family” members, it’s time for another investigation.

Thanksgiving note....11/24/2011

         THANKS IN GIVING....

measure of man, the terms universal,

one giving of love, for those of us to learn.

souls wander in search of fulfillment,

an open hand, a tear, a cherished moment.

for those who give with unselfish deed,

those larger than life itself, and who serve so tender.

are few so blessed, or humbled by need.

putting your money where your mouth is.......

after watching a heated debate on one of the many liberal Public Broadcasting networks it struck me

that all the naysayers of prudent public policy don't have deep pockets at all. Mort Zuckerman put

Obama's effectiveness as a leader right where it belongs. " Here's an administration that had both

Houses of Congress, and the Oval office and didn't even try to solve any of the long term problems

facing this nation Most notable the long term deficit. So dyfunctional are these democrats, that even

with an overwhelming majority they

could do nothing but bicker in their medoicrity and blame the former administration for everything.

The American Spring......

what exactly is behind protesters demands of Occupy Wall street? Let's see, jobs, retribution, jobs, partying, fair government, jobs, sex, drugs, jobs, playing bongos in public, and last but not least
Draconian regulations that guarantee the distribution of wealth to the 50% of Americans who don't
pay any taxes. hold-on, one more; changing the world for whom?
here's the way i see it, you bet, protest that our lives have gotten considerably worse since obama has
taken office. protest the government using your money to bailout the fat cats, while creating not a single
verifiable job outside the public sector. raise hell about the 9.1% unemployment rate that's destroying
the "American Dream." throw in the criminal like bipartisanship that has crippled our system and nearly
defaulting on our debt. But why cripple the financial system that supplies you with your iphones, tweets
and a better way of life. somebody say something important, give us a plan. or, is this just another bunch
of malcontents who can define problems, and have no real answers.

P.S.
 please don't be fooled by the same promises you heard in 2008!

Solyndra...taking the "Fifth"

     As everyone knows evoking the "Fifth" usually means you have something to hide, and doing it before Congress

means you're probably hiding something really big. This entire episode entangling campaign contributions to

Obama, and favored status for stimulus loan guarantees reeks of corruption at the highest levels of government.

What this nation has to lose is far greater than the $535 million solar burnout of Solyndra, what it loses may never be restored, the

trust that government will guarantee the public gets a fair shake for its buck. After all, this president rode his horse into office

pledging that trust!

Breaking down the political dialog.......

     for too long now the dialog directing our sense of understanding has taken a major downturn. Often
used terms like, "right-wing extremism", or "liberal progressives" have become more meaningful
then common sense and united purpose. On greater issues facing this nation there should only be
one side, what's best for our nation.
     the political discourse has been driven by minority issues for so long, that the most vital fundamentals
of governmental process has been assigned to relic status. no longer is policy determined by simple rules
that demand value from revenue, and efficiency for process.
     running the government with a credit card works no more effectively then living in personal debt,
as both nation and individual are facing the same calamity.
     it would serve us all, individually, and as a nation to be more cognizent of what could lie ahead,
the destruction of our integrity....

The truths no-one wants you to know.....

Thank you Dana Mullinaux Perrault for these figures....

There are actually two messages here. The 1st points out the incredible "benefits" of “Universal Healthcare” and is very interesting; the 2nd is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot.


1. A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
U.S. 65% England 46% Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S. 93% England 15% Canada 43%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S. 90% England 15% Canada 43%

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S. 77% England 40% Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S. 71 England 14 Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":
U.S. 12% England 02% Canada 06%

Check this last set of statistics!!

2. The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.

Here are the percentages.

T. Roosevelt................. .38%

Taft............................... 40%

Wilson .......................... 52%


Harding......................... 49%


Coolidge....................... 48%


Hoover ........................ 42%


F. Roosevelt.................. 50%


Truman......................... 50%


Johnson........................ 47%


Nixon........................... 53%


Ford............................ 42%


Carter.......................... 32%


Reagan.........................56%


GH Bush.......................51%


Clinton .........................39%


GW Bush.....................55%


And the winner is:


Obama ........................ 08%


This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration: only 8% of them have ever
worked in a job not supported by tax money! That's right! Only eight
percent---the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents! And these
people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their
business? They know what's best for GM, Chrysler, Wall Street, and you
and me? How can the president of a major nation and society, the one
with the most successful Economic system in world history, stand and
talk about business when he's never worked for one? Or about jobs
when he has never really had one? And when it's the same for 92% of
his Senior staff and closest advisers? They've spent most of their
time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community
organizers." They should have been in an employment line. Pass this
on… we'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.

The UN Folly.....

Let the Israeli bashing begin, Let's face it, this new Palestinian folly is nothing more than a new push to

illiminate Israel by force. With the mideast struggling with violence on numerous fronts because of a

so-called push to democracy, most arabs  hate Israel and the West. And as the PLO,

Hamas, and its sister organization the Muslim Brotherhood know the Obama administration is careless

with word and deed. After all, it was Obama's  declaration in stupidity  that a new member being

admitted  to the UN in the coming year would be a Palestinian State. Thinking that world opinion is now

in their favor, and a weak American foreign policy struggles making the hard choices, the time is right to

wave the flames of dissent against the Israeli state. Make no mistake, this ongoing narrative is going to lead

 to violence as the rest of the world allows  ignorance and hate take their seats at the UN this week.
