“IT’S IRRESPONSIBLE, IT’S UNPATRIOTIC”

It’s irresponsible; it’s unpatriotic and I am doing more of it.  I am Barack Hussein Obama and I want your vote.

“NOW HEAR THIS”

For Veterans of the U.S.Navy (Veterans spelled with a capital V for respect) are familiar with those three words.  When “Now hear this” was broadcast throughout the ship over the squawk box you knew some significant announcement was about to take place.  It didn’t have the urgency of the raucous man-your-battle-stations alarm, but it usually was something important like “The number two evaporator is back on line so the showers will be operational again from oh six hundred to oh six thirty tomorrow morning.”  Or it might be the announcement of the name of the movie that would be playing in the mess hall that night.  Whatever it was, it was usually something you wanted to know.

Now hear this.  Andrew Klavin may be seen, actually we should say may be read, on the internet right now.  Best known for his entertaining message filled films and video productions, Klavin is no slouch with a pen either.  His prose production is entitled A Fantasy Election, an Imaginary Man and the tagline is Barack Obama has always been less real than a dream—a media dream.  It’s about an empty man in a real chair.

The Army has a phrase too; it’s “Listen up!” which is usually followed by a command.  So whether you are a soldier of the earth or a man of the sea, listen up and now read this.  It’s not an order but it’s better than most of the movies they play in the mess hall.

A SNIPPET ABOUT THE CHEVROLET VOLT

voltshock.jpg

The snippet is from a serious blogger with a sense of humor, or at least a good sense of the ridiculous or he wouldn’t call himself Senator Blutarsky.  The moniker is fitting if you consider the Volt is somewhat of an Animal House product.  Here is the Senator’s bottom line.

THE BOTTOM LINE: even with generous assumptions, the first generation of the Chevrolet Volt will consume about $1 billion in federal tax credits, and STILL result in an economic loss to GM shareholders in excess of $600 million over its lifetime. Without the subsidies, the cumulative loss would triple to $1.8 billion.

Go to the Senator’s own words if you want to read the nitty-gritty above the Bottom Line.  Be forewarned, he uses a lot of numbers.  Why not simply divide $1 billion by the number of people who pay taxes to see how much of your money has been invested in the Government Volt.

Let it go at that, watch tonight’s debate and don’t neglect to vote.

THE ANTITHESIS OF WINSTON CHURCHILL

President Barack Hussein Obama

One of the first things Barack Obama did upon occupying the Oval Office was to remove the bust of Winston Churchill from the White House and send it back to the people of England.  It was a deliberate insult, equivalent in diplomatic circles to the secular act of attending a cocktail party and walking up to one of your best and oldest friends and saying straight to his face “I now despise you.”  It was an incivility unbecoming of any person, beneath the dignity of a world leader and confirmation that we had elected our first un-American president.


Common wisdom says Obama’s act of returning the sculpture was the product of an unsatisfied rage over Britain’s history of colonialism, particularly with respect to Kenya.  And that is probably correct.  But there is another reason why Obama might harbor a great bitterness toward Churchill.  Winston Churchill stood strong against Barack Obama’s chosen style of deep Socialist government.

Sir Winston said,

You may, by the arbitrary and sterile act of Government—for remember, Governments create nothing and have nothing to give but what they have first taken away—you may put money in the pocket of one set of Englishmen, but it will be money taken from the pockets of another set of Englishmen, and the greater part will be spilled on the way.

And another,

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Winston Churchill is no longer with us and no man of his stature is alive to speak for us today.  The job is left to smaller voices, like this very small one, to convey messages of success in place of failure, common sense in the face of ignorance, messages of love and ambition to counter the gospel of envy and to tell the story of virtue inherent in a system that leads to the sharing not of misery, but of prosperity.

DEMOCRATS AGAINST DEMOCRACY

In a republic, representatives are chosen to debate and vote the issues on behalf of its citizens. The representatives are generally expected to vote according to the will of the majority but they are not bound to do so.  In a democracy however, the people vote the issues themselves and majority rules – period!  How strange it is then that the party that calls themselves Democrats is the party that so often ignores the will of the majority.

Case in point.  In the recent primaries, Tennessee Democratic Party voters elected Mark Clayton to be their candidate on the Democratic Party ticket running for the US Senate.  But the Democratic Party will have none of it.  A Party spokesperson announced that:

“The Tennessee Democratic Party disavows his candidacy, and will not do anything to promote or support him in any way.”

This in spite of the fact the Clayton received nearly twice as many votes as his closest challenger.   It goes from the ridiculous to the sublime.  The spokesperson added:

“Many Democrats in Tennessee knew nothing about any of the candidates in the race, so they voted for the person at the top of the ticket. Unfortunately, none of the other Democratic candidates were able to run the race needed to gain statewide visibility or support.”

That’s not a reasonable excuse; it’s an admission of incompetence.  It says Tennessee Democrats have no minds of their own.

I love Tennessee with its rolling hills and magnificent horse farms.  Their politics aren’t bad either.  Tennessee voted against Al Gore for president and it cost him the election.  If only the people of his home state, who presumably knew him best, had voted for him we never would have learned what a chad is and the Supreme Court would never have been involved.

Some states allow resolutions where every citizen has the opportunity to vote on an issue.  The decision may or may not be binding but it’s as democratic as it gets.  California voted on Prop. 8 in 2000 and it passed by majority vote.  The people had spoken; they made their wishes clear.  And then the Democratic Party took the issue to the California Supreme court and won a decision to have the peoples wishes overturned.  Californians followed with a new Prop. 8 in 2008.  Same issue, same result.  The people voted for it by a margin of 52 to 47.  Democrats proceed once again to have the will of the people overturned in the courts.  A better name for the Party would be the Autocrats.
