Why don't we start looking into the telecommuting part of the government workers and assess the humongous waste there. Where is James O'Keefe?
And these two half wits, expect who to pay for the government? With no private sector, these two parasites, can't figure out, that there is no government. I can't stand these two parasites.
Fair or not, for some people it is easy to talk down material success, when they have material success. Um..um.. what happens if we listen to Obama, and like good followers of our leader, we ALL go the work for the government......
These people are such Hippocrates! I am so sick and tired of these phoney intellectuals and elitist who will put all of us on welfare so they can live like queens and kings over will we beg for food and work. This brainwashing rhetoric is designed to not only undermine American values but to demean work ethic and make more people dependent on Government. What they fail to articulate is that there are not enough jobs in the public sector and the private sector is the funding mechanism for the public sector! These people are so stupid and incomprehensible! Perhaps that BS rhetoric is popular in Chicago, Michelle and Barack, but it is not popular with most Americans. I cannot wait until Nov. 6 2012!
People need to understand that Barack Obama and his wife don't like the private sector and never have liked it in my opinion. To them the government is the answer to every problem. Never mind that the track record of the Government is essentially abysmal when it comes to running things, including itself. Medicare is bankrupt and so is Social Security. Medicaid is also bankrupt and the U.S. Postal Service is on it's last leg. Government subsidized Amtrak is also bankrupt and it's one of the worst rail systems ever conceived.
Yet Barack and Michelle Obama still have the gall to tell young people that the public sector is preferable to the private sector and that bigger and bigger government is the answer to America's problems. When in fact it is government itself that has gotten us into this mess in the first place! The truth of the matter is that the government doesn't create jobs and that vast increases in government employees only sucks more money from taxpayers who end up paying for their careers in government and its blatant incompetence.
The Declaration of Independence along with the Constitution and Bill of Rights, were documents our Founding Fathers formulated to ensure a free people under a limited government. But obviously Barack Obama has trampled on the Constitution and has waged war on our freedoms and liberties ever since he entered the political arena and especially now as president. Obama believes the Constitution should evolve according to one's own personal interpretation of what it should be. Obama grew up under a communist mother with a Marxist father who abandoned him. Most if not all of Obama's childhood mentors were either communist or other radical figureheads who steered Obama's philosophy and solidified Obama's radical belief system. Domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were well acquainted with Barack Obama's radical proclivities and in fact Obama's political career was started out of their home on the south side of Chicago. But in order for Obama to ascend the ladder of political expediency, Obama needed to "blend in" to society and thus joined a so-called "church" where radical white and Jew hating propagandist named Jeremiah 'goddamn America' Wright spewed blasphemies, hatred and racial animosity to Barack and Michele Obama for twenty whole years as the Obama's no doubt soaked it all in and then carried it over into the political realm, having been ingrained into their subconsciousness, and subsequently, into the White House after Barack Obama was elected president.
No wonder Barack and Michele Obama hate capitalism and the private sector! Their radical beliefs are tied to sanctimonious religiosity that "brow beats" anybody who opposes their radical agenda. What is their radical agenda you say? = To GROW GOVERNMENT more and more until government CONTROLS every facet within society and in its entirety, and where those same government elitists like Barack Obama and others... seek to enslave the populace and to restrict and *eventually* eliminate our freedoms and liberties (and Constitution) and to replace our Republic and democratic system with a dictatorship ruled by government elitists who seek to retain power indefinitely. Just like Obama is trying to do right now as a matter of fact. He has repeatedly bypassed Congress in order to implement his radical agenda and he is currently "waging war" on religion in his effort to "silence" and "control" opposing voices that try to resist him and his evil agenda.
The American people have a choice. They can choose to side with the forces of evil and vote Obama back in office. Or they can choose to side with freedom and liberty and the Constitution as it was written and decide to vote for Mitt Romney. I can assure you of this right now, that if Obama gets reelected, the devastation and economic malaise we are currently experiencing in America will only get worse in an Obama second term. Why?? Because the "Divider in Chief" doesn't really care about you the American people, or your plot in life. Obama has given the American people record unemployment rates, record poverty, record gas and diesel prices, record number of people on Food Stamps, record housing price devaluations, record DEFICITS, record DEBT, even as he divides the country in his bid for reelection. If he actually cared about the American people he would reverse his onerous policies that are strangling the economy. If he cared about the American people he would have approved the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have immediately created tens of thousands of new jobs. But he didn't. If he cared about the American people's freedoms and liberties and if he honored the Constitution, he wouldn't be waging "war" on religion like he's currently doing, nor would he continue trampling on the Constitution in order to implement his agenda and stay in power. But he continues to do both to this very day.
Obama's radical liberalism has shown NO signs of letting up or moving toward the center. In other words, he'll continue to govern the country with his radical LEFT-wing policies that are currently destroying the economy and dividing the country and of course bankrupting the nation even as we speak. The ONLY way to divert such a catastrophe from continuing... is to kick Obama out of office in November. It's just that simple.
I agree that priority one is to repeal Obama. We must also not forget that there are Republicans in Congress that continue to promote our demise, as seen by this ridiculous dismissal of the Keystone pipeline and excessive EPA regulations.
There is a lot of work to do, in November as well as in 2014 and 2016.
You make one heck of a case against this "hyphenated" American--bigots, psychologically warped and damaged by their parents, vengeful and lacking value for the life of any other human being. There is no good beyond "self" that either Obama or his supporters, his bloodline or those who come after him can perceive.
Purging Obama is going to feel very good but his defeat only signals the beginning of a greater, final battle.
I've mentioned on this site before that my dad never had a formal education. He was raised very poor, pretty much starting work at the age of 6 when he would jump on the back of street cars to sell news papers.
Fast forward to proposing to my mom with 37.15 cents in his pocket. His future father in law tossed him out and said come back when you have saved 5000.00.
…And so he did.
He did every job, machinst, boxer, lifeguard.
They were married, and War broke out. He enlisted.
After the war he opened a 5 and 10 where he worked often times 18 or more hours a day to make it a success. And success it was. Working for himself, as a small business owner was his most prized accomplisment. He loved coming in to the store every morning and tending to the shop.
He semi retired in his 70's.
After he retired he helped my brother with his fledgling donut store by delivering donuts at 3 in the morning. And he loved that too.
You make your life what you want of it.
He had a few mottos. Everything thing in moderation, live within your means, and always kiss your wife good night.
He died a little over a year ago at 92, married for 68 years. Having everything thing he ever wanted, which inevitably was happiness.
I miss my dad.
There are two schools a person can go through. The Educational system and the school of hard knocks (life). If I had a choice between two hirees, I'd choose the latter.
The most wonderful thing about your father - he lives on in you. That is the most a father could ever ask for. If I had a daughter, I would have hoped she would look like you. :)
Thank you for the compliment Nukeman.
AND it means a lot.
My dad did instill his values ( his classic line.."at the risk of repeating myself", and we've done our best to pass them on to our son. You've often heard me speak ( or gush) about him.
I often wish that the Rightscoopers could get together for a BBQ. Wouldnt that be fun? Imagine the conversations all of us could have. ABC would be holding court, and I recon we would all have so much to talk about!
Heh, I could see us all sitting around a picnic table, each one buried in his laptop, talking to each other. (j/k)
The BBQ really sounds like a great idea, though. Perhaps after we bury the aspirations of 'dear leader'. :)
Thank you very much for the reminder that life is fragile and short. I've been a crazed maniac since the Roberts ruling and I needed a reminder.
That sounds like a beautiful tribute to your wonderful dad. Even though I've never had the pleasure, you certainly made him proud I'm sure. My dad also loved his chocolate (especially fudge). And ribbon candy at Christmas :)
Enjoy your 4th of July Holiday. Our dads will be looking on!
Yes Debby, Fathers day was especially difficult. We were blessed.
Tonight everyone is coming over to my house in memory of my dad being gone one year. Im really not looking foward to it, because my mom will not hold up well.
My dad loved chocolate. We would give him giant Hershey bars every holiday.
Here is the table for tonight.
I hope this links.
Yes, I believe we did. Father's Day is especially difficult isnt it? We are blessed to have had such great dads that we remember them all the time.
Father's Day or not.
"The true engines of economic growth will always be companies like Solyndra." said Pres 0bama. Pls recognize our presidents deep and serious disdain for the private sector. Pls recognize that our president has zero cognizance of the symbiosis between the host and the parasite. Pls recognize that our president has no concern about our national debt. I truly hate to say ClowardPiven but it is becoming increasingly difficult to find another explanation.
When I came out of College, I had no job, huge College loans, and a piece of paper. I retired at 50, with a decent pension, zero College debt, and a comfortable life. How did I get that? From hard work in the private sector, in spite of the public sector continually trying to take every little gain that I earned.
A College grad today can do one of three things: Enter the private sector and seek to earn a good life (like I did), become an OWS bum and cry for entitlements, or go to the public sector and work (living off the taxes of the private sector).
Of that public sector, very, very few of them reach the pinnacle of success that Obama did. He and his wife are millionaires off the backs of others (but then, who wouldn't want a $300k job doing absolutely nothing, a job that didn't have to be filled after you left?).
Who else accomplishes that feat? Uhhh, Congressmen and women, those 535 public servants that start out at $175k and end up millionaires (with lifetime pensions after a four year stint), just sitting in Washington (otherwise known as the city of Oz), passing bills that spend our money, many of whom are under indictment for one reason or other (but yet never get convicted).
Yeah, go into government work, young man. Sell your soul.
I worked for one enlightened person in Fed Service- Jack Bryant.
He described working for the government as being like, "Bowling in the dark. You go through the motions, you hear some activity, but you never know the score."
Years after I left government service, I realized that government workers give up even caring about the score. Does that remind you of watching the Postal Workers behind the counter when you go to mail a letter? The federal/civil worker can never lose, but he can never win.
And in the end, certificates and commendation letters in the drawer, pictures of the retirement parties on the refrigerator, you realize a kind of immortality. You can never really die because you never really mattered.
The Chosen One, Obama and his wife, Michele, invite you to hell.
Could not have been better said. Especially regarding civil service and the the diminution of soul.
It's like squandering an inherited fortune, your life, and realizing what you had after it's gone. It's the difference between laboring your entire life and laboring with joy every day.
This is how we get the obama's out of Washington.

They couldn't even pay their bills until he got into government and she got a big fat raise based on her new source of influence!
He received and advance for writing his first book but did not write it and the publisher demanded that he return the advance, but he had spent the money... finally it appears that Bill Ayers wrote it for him!
And now they have discovered that book includes at least 38 lies about Obama's life that have been identified so far. He fabricated the stories about his grandfathers to justify his anti-colonial attitudes.... just the way Elizabeth Warren fabricated her supposed Native American background to advance her career at two universities.
The ends justify the means with these people... truth means nothing.
They were irresponsible frauds before they were saved by his political career and influence in Chicago - is it any wonder they see government "service" as the way to go? These corrupt people become millionaires soaking the taxpayers in their public "service" jobs and they don't serve anyone but themselves and their own ambitions.
It wouldn't surprise me that Ayers wrote the book for Obama. It's obvious that Ayers does Obama's thinking.
As to Michelle getting that job at the university hospital, she showed she didn't care about healthcare for the poor.
Michelle Obama's Patient Dumping Plan
We have nothing but con artists in the White House.
Barack, Michelle, David Axlerod, and Valerie Jarret should be be wearing prison uniforms along with Eric Holder.
The Obamas clearly don't understand how the wealth is created that runs this country and pays the taxes his big fat federal government relies on !!!!! Oh, those evil profits!
AFTER ALL, YOU CAN ALL BECOME MILLIONAIRES WORKING FOR OUR CORRUPT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!
I like the sentiment, but it appears that you may be forgetting who creates the money, and who holds the real wealth.
The Fed Res creates the money, and the government puts us on the hook for it. Since the Fed Res note is the only legal currency to pay taxes, the private central bank owns all that is tied to it.
We don't own the money that we have, and it is literally created by debt. Not one dollar exists that wasn't printed (or created electronically) for debt. There is no US currency anymore, therefor the American people don't own it.
The IRS is literally a collection agency for the Fed Res. It was created in the same year as the Fed Res as a means to collect the real wealth of the American people. So we are trading our real property for fake money that will crash in value, putting the whole country in subservience to the bankers.
Unless our government phases out the Fed through the creation of a US dollar, and controlling it constitutionally through congress, we are cooked. If our government does not do this, then we will be sold out to the next world reserve currency, while being held down by the debt of the last. There will never be a recovery.
There is no wealth being created, just a transfer of real property to the central banks through debt accumulation with a fiat currency that has no value. Evenually, every piece of property will be owned by the government through the property tax, because people who have paid off homes will be forced to use the Fed Note to pay their taxes, but won't have them.
There's a small glitch. As a group, homeowners could stop paying their mortgages, destroying the banks, as well as stop paying their property taxes, confounding the government in turn. The key is to act as a group and if pushed far enough, the ultimate power will show.
Owning the money is no different than owning your home. With 30 year mortgages, we don't really own our homes either. If the government collapsed, then we would own them, as it would be every man for themselves.
No doubt that there is a lot of fear mongering going on, and democrats lead the charge. I certainly would hinge any opinions solely on what one person said. In fact there is no way to form a reasonable conclusion without considering a huge spectrum of sources and reports. Everybody has their agenda, and their spin. These guys use things like this for partisan reasons.
First of all, he said (in the very last 3 seconds of that 10 minute video) that "a few members were told there would be martial law". When a Congressman says " a few members were told" that means nobody said it, other than someone joking around in their private office. He had no verification whatsoever.
Secondly, the Democrats are usually the party to use fearmongering and dread of "falling off the cliff" to get what they want from the people. When I hear Kusinich or Sherman start to speak, I think of Charlie Brown listening to adults talk in Peanuts - Wah, wah, WAH, wah ,wah. These two people are totally useless to me.
That video was a waste of my valuable time and I'll never get that 10 minutes back.
Do you remember when congress was threatened with martial law if they didn't vote for the bailouts?
The way I see it is that our government works for the banks right now. The banks and corporations (media) put them in power. All we have to do is look at how they get $1B to fund a presidential campaign, not to mention the power positions in the house and senate.
The scenario that you outlined is contingent on us maintaining our sovereignty as a people. When it crashes, government will do one of two things. They will keep us tied to the Fed note, and use the police state and military to maintain control using banker money, or they will denounce the central bank and call on all patriots to defend this country while we restructure our financial system. The second will require that most federal agencies be abolished and real production be allowed to take place to feed and cloth the citizens.
I tend to believe that they are preparing for the first scenario. If the American people lay down and take it, then there will just be government agents going around enforcing property confiscation for the banks and the global elite. We will be put under global rule at this point. Our constitution will officially be null and void. If we fight back, then we will be under full blown lock down martial law, and troops will roam the streets going house to house as they are in the middle east.
We need to start realizing how bad it is getting, and how quickly it is happening.
Affirmative action and sitting on certain non-governmental boards ensured theirs now they have they audacity to tell America to accept less. They are so full...what's the phrase...&^%. Nov cannot get here fast enough.
" Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny." Thomas Jefferson
This president apparently is speeding up the operations, and has in record time become tyrannical in his governance.
Let me get this straight.....BO said that trying to attain a high status in the private sector "displays a poverty of ambition"??? Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, Mark Zuckerberg, all professional athletes....they have no ambition??? The small entrepreneur that starts his first business hoping to one day own 4-5 business' has no ambition??
So what BO?? What do you want them to do? Do you want everyone to work for the government, where it's practically impossible to get fired?? Don't worry the government will help you.
Simply amazing. His hatred of capitalism and the free market is astounding.
He should have ended the commencement speech with "And may the odds be ever in your favor!"
