Real Tax Nightmare

The Democrat Party and their dinosaur media lapdogs have convinced many that what will be the largest increase in taxes in US history is only an attempt to prevent tax cuts for "millionaires and billionaires". No tax cut is proposed by the GOP, merely retaining the rates that have prevailed since the George W. Bush Presidency which if the main stream press was interested in honest reporting would simply be called "the current tax rate" which Democrats are determined to raise including the death (inheritance) tax and taxes on capital gains (even on selling your house). This record tax increase will punish far more than millionaires and billionaires, with individuals earning more than $200,000 and couples more than $250,000 taking the hit of higher marginal rates. Many families who are far from what would generally be considered rich will pay the more punitive (higher) tax rates with fewer available deductions and the alternative minimum tax creeping in to further punish more middle income earners. The dinosaur propagandists who gladly flack for Obama as they pretend journalism have gone hog wild presenting the inane syllogistic fallacy that millionaires and billionaires are the same when any logical person with a grasp of simple math sees they are vastly different. A rise in Federal taxes in the face of a relentless economic downturn will make joblessness that much worse by throttling small business owners and making it that much less likely that the private sector will be able to resume hiring. The grotesque manipulation of the thoughtless and gullible (including those engrossed in class envy and those who hate the so-called "rich") may win Barack Hussein Obama this election but the consequences for the country of an Obama victory will be devastating.

Winning the Trifecta

I do not for a second believe that either the Romney Presidential campaign or the GOP in general is in disarray. The dinosaur media are nothing more than an arm of the Obama team and are doing all they can to depress Republican turnout. I do not think the American people are charmed by Debbie Wasserman (Test) Schultz when even the liberal flack Anderson Cooper tires of her lies to his face. I think those who are informed realized almost immediately that the Obama administration from UN Ambassador Susan Rice to Jay Carney to Barack Hussein Obama himself have lied through their teeth about the Muhammad film causing the Benghazi murder of four Americans, which in fact, was an unforgivable lapse of security on a date September 11 when precautions should have been at their highest level in a Muslim country as unstable as post-revolution Libya. I feel it is quite possible that the Republican Party will retain control of the US House of Representatives, will turn US Senate control back to the GOP, and that Mitt Romney will capture the Presidency. I pray this will be the outcome of the November election while it is still possible to save the country.

No Global Taxes

It is often the best intentions that produce the worst result. I do not smoke. In light of the death of two relatives at least in part due to their former smoking habits, I abhor tobacco use. I read a Drudge link today on The Washington Free Beacon by CJ Ciaramella that the World Health Organization is considering attempting to impose a "global excise tax of up to 70 percent on cigarettes". It is bad enough to pay Federal taxes, plenty bad to fork money over to local government, but Americans should never for any reason be forced to pony up their hard earned money to extra-national bodies that are absolutely outside the US Constitution's careful restraint on government's power.

Who Threatens Whom

Some Jew-haters actually are suggesting that Israel is threatening Iran. The Jewish State has not declared that the Islamic Republic will vanish from the face of the earth. Israel has not called Iran "a cancer". Israelis or those acting on their behalf have not murdered absolutely innocent Muslims in Argentina. Israel is not attempting to create a caliphate or world-encompassing Jewish nation. Israel has maintained nuclear ambiguity but intelligence experts believe Israel has had a weaponized nuclear capability since at least the 1970s and Israel has not menaced or extorted any other country with atomic blackmail. To those who want to see Israel obliterated, "never again" means never again. Israel really has nukes and the ability to deliver them anywhere at any time (ICBMs) and will not go quietly into the night.

Very High Price

Those women who continue to support Barack Hussein Obama because they want contraception provided free of charge are actually going to pay in both lost freedom and economic opportunity. Maybe Romney will not pay for your morning after pill but at least you will be able to find a job after Romney wins the election and institutes his economic program.

Integrity in Football

I normally do not wax on over a topic as trivial as sport, but must comment on the travesty that befell the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. The powers that be could have reversed the horrendous call (sequence of bad calls actually) that handed Seattle the game, but instead upheld the officiating crews blatant incompetence. This does not preserve the so-called "integrity" of American professional football, but absolutely undermines it.

Sons of York

I happened to be in a Nashville, Tennessee location of the world's largest retailer and I heard two associates on the break rooting on a European football match they were following on a smart phone. These gents were what some might call "countrified" and others would say were "rednecks". Yet, there they were with rapt attention on a soccer game. My how my country has changed, with what would seem like NASCAR and NFL fans totally engrossed in a game many Americans had never watched or participated in prior to Kyle Rote, Jr.

The Patient English

In the aftermath of World War II, America fearing a growing Soviet menace, poured billions of dollars into rebuilding former Axis members, Germany and Japan, rapidly and vastly increasing their prosperity, while the people of ally Great Britain still had to endure rationing. While our erstwhile enemies became world economic powerhouses, the United Kingdom languished in a self-imposed socialist haze until Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher revitalized the economy through privatization and loosening the chains of strangling regulation. It is a shame that the United States has chosen the path of postwar Britain, right to the National Health aspect with our labyrinthine Obama Care at a time when more economic liberty could save us.

Marketplace of Ideas

Both Barack Hussein Obama and Mitt Romney have misrepresented who they are and where they really stand. Barack Hussein Obama will not own up to his "Joe the Plumber" take from the rich guiding ethos, even after a 1998 audio tape emerged of him declaring his embrace of "redistribution". Obama really means it but he will never admit this Marxist impulse in the midst of a tight campaign. Mitt Romney is actually pretending to be more to the right than his record proves that he actually is. As Governor of Massachusetts, Romney showed no affinity to the Second Amendment and did nothing to advance gun rights, nor did Romney do a thing to curtail abortion on demand, leading me to question his now proclaimed reverence for life. Of course, Obama remains more dangerous to the Republic, with America much more able to endure a moderate posing as a conservative than a radical statist determined to transform the nation in ways the Founding Fathers would despise.

Civilization Versus Chaos

The codification of law came into being with Hammurabi's Code in what today would be called the Middle East. Over the centuries, order emerged and that region became sacred to three major world religions. One of these faiths has yet to undergo a reformation and still clings to practices that were the norm for other folks around 700AD. Muslims still employ stoning, beheading, and crucifixion. Much of the rest of the world has enjoyed democracy for a century or more, but the Islamic World is just now dabbling with concepts of self-determination. Fundamentalist Muslims profess an open disdain for democracy and instead, embrace submission under Sharia. What the so-called Arab Spring unleashed now appears ugly, dangerous, bloody, and destabilizing for the whole world. Nostradamus and Revelations warn of great cataclysm with tribulation in the Mideast. Let us pray that the movement toward global conflagration may be arrested before it is too late.

What a Relief

At last- happy days are here again- or so say the partisan hacks masquerading as objective journalists. The dinosaur media is attempting to provide momentum for their chosen candidate Barack Hussein Obama. Suddenly, some manipulated numbers that the press claim point to a robust recovery in the US economy, have anchor people and reporters chipper and celebratory. The reporters would be singing a different tune if a Republican were President and a Democrat was attempting to oust the incumbent. We would be hearing with absolute validity that we were in the worst economy since the Great Depression if Romney was in office presiding over this disaster.

Debating the Debates

Some Obamabots are already counting their chickens, convinced that manipulated poll numbers favoring their candidate are real. I would say the issue is not settled just yet and the debates between Mitt Romney and Barack Hussein Obama may have a telling effect. The dinosaur media mouthpieces who are no more than an arm of the Obama campaign will tell you how wonderfully Obama performed and how thoroughly he mopped up the floor with Romney, no matter what you think you saw in the actual debate. I do not think either candidate will dominate the proceedings, because if Romney starts to roll, to really seem to be making headway, then the supposedly neutral moderator(s) will interrupt him and try to break his train of thought because they are just as vested in an Obama victory as the rest of the main stream media. I would not guess that Obama will be all that convincing either, although the team prepping him may well have access to the questions in advance as Democrats have successfully manipulated the staging of the Presidential debates going back to JFK versus Nixon. Watch the debates. Do not be swayed by the Obama propagandists masquerading as journalists who will, no matter what, attempt to convince the voting public that Obama won the debates.

Syria's Ceaseless Slaughter

Bashar Assasd is bigger than the nation that he purports to govern. Assad continues to use attacks from aircraft and heavy artillery against Syria's civilian populace with casualties reputedly higher than ever in this conflict seemingly without end. Assad has help now from thugs from Iran and also likely from the Hezbollah terror group. In a sick alliance right out of the Axis of Evil, Alawite Syrians have made common cause with foreign Shi'ites too keep the Assad dictatorship in power.

A Long Memory

Red Chinese are absolutely irate at Japan. They are attacking Japanese businesses, interests, and even individuals on Mainland China. Some media reports indicate the hostility has been engendered by the purchase of some uninhabited islands by Japan that had been claimed by both nations. Other reports indicate that the Chinese authorities have ginned up hostility against the Japanese to deflect from their own deficiencies and an economic downturn plaguing China. All these contentions are valid but the main reason Chinese would assail Japan is the collective memory of the atrocities (such as the Rape of Nanking and the medical massacre perpetrated by Unit 731) Japan inflicted on millions of innocent Chinese before and during World War II.

Devaluing Our Dollars

America's money was the reserve currency of the rest of the globe. The strength of US currency could not be questioned. Now, the loose monetary policy of the Federal Reserve has called that into question. Yes, the stock market soared and shareholders were understandably happy about that, but if the gains are marked by fiat dollars, then Ben Bernanke's moves are self-defeating. Inflation is already happening with gasoline prices rising and certain staple foods (like corn) as expensive as they have ever been. I do not want to have to bring a wheelbarrow of Weimar money with me to buy a loaf of bread or be a Zimbabwe billionaire carrying essentially worthless money.

Over a Barrel

Would it not be grand if the West could tell the ruthless potentates of Saudi Arabia who have spent billions spreading poisonous Wahhabism where they could put their oil? If only America collected our domestic reserve with the gusto and technological inspiration of the Manhattan Project while continuing research on petroleum alternatives, we could tell those that fund al-Qaeda to go pound sand.

War on Sanity

A film that may be nothing more than a You Tube trailer has reputedly ignited the Muslims of the world and they are now determined to punish America for the creation of this insult to Muhammad. Of course, Osama bin Laden must have had the gift of foresight to, in an act of preemptive vengeance about a motion picture no one had even conceived of, slaughter three thousand innocent Americans more than a decade before this movie supposedly sparked Islamic wrath. The contention that a film no one has seen caused the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya is absolutely preposterous. Useful idiots are using this outbreak of violence to assail the most basic concepts of Jeffersonian democracy. Anyone so gullible as to believe the video started the trouble or cynical enough to try to use the event to limit free speech really must hate Western freedoms.

Government Silencing You

I have heard the great hue and cry that an obscure movie (if it even exists beyond a short trailer) has caused murder the world over as representatives of the so-called "religion of peace" demonstrate that they are not that tolerant after all. Speech that is inoffensive needs no protection. The First Amendment of the US Constitution was crafted by the framers to protect controversial speech. If I say what nice people the Hindus are, then my words need no protection. If I verbally castigate evil Nazis, the vast majority concur and once again, my statement needs no cover. It is only when someone makes an intemperate declaration that inflames passion that our right to speak comes to the fore. Pleasant conversation needs no support of law or government, but when the government tries to suppress even a fraudster turned filmmaker from distributing his work, no matter the trouble his movie has caused, then liberty itself may be compromised.

The Shameless Partisans

The dinosaur media once again reveal their true face as the strike arm of the Obama campaign and as nothing more than an appendage of the Democrat Party. Whether it is George Stephanopoulos pretending objectivity in his interview of GOP nominee Mitt Romney or a pair of so-called journalists including Jan Crawford conspiring on an open mike to elevate Barack Hussein Obama by making Mitt look bad before a Romney presser after Islamists slaughtered American diplomats, the true face of the main stream press looks Left.

The Probable Culprits

The murder of US diplomats in Libya may be attributed to al-Qaeda or an al-Qaeda offshoot, particularly after a claim of responsibility, but remember those who commit acts of terror often do not claim them and just as frequently, terror organizations may take credit for the foul acts of others. It is certainly possible that a Wahhabi militant band perpetrated the atrocity, but some Iranian-inspired Shia murderers may have done the killing. Remember that prior to September 11, 2001, more Americans were murdered by Imad Mughniyeh and Hezbollah than any other terror group and that though Mughniyeh no longer draws breath, Iran and the terrorists she supports still itch to kill representatives of the United States (a nation Iranians condemn as the "Great Satan"). The third suspect group would be members or supporters of the government of Muammar Gaddafi who might want a pound of flesh for their loss of control of Libya. In any event, Americans must keep their guard up as they are still targets for world jihad and international terrorist groups.

The Arab Street

Barack Hussein Obama came into the Presidency with the promise that the world would like, respect, or even love the United States of America again with Obama being such a cosmopolitan internationalist, the real President of the world in sharp contrast to the provincial cowboy President with his willing to go it alone attitude that was the way George W. Bush was falsely portrayed by his opponents including those in the dinosaur press. Obama made a major foreign policy outreach as the US President on June 4, 2009 with his address to Al-Azhar University in Cairo. This speech was an appeal to the Muslim world and much of Obama's foreign policy since then has been directed at placating and protecting Muslims right to military support for parts of the so-called Arab Spring. The world does not love America. The world (including the rising Red China and resurgent Russia) does not respect Obama or America. Even the jihadists who clamored for our help to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi and gladly accepted US aid despise Obama's America and Americans to the point of murder. A massive failure on the part of United States intelligence agencies permitted our embassy in Egypt to fall from our grasp and allowed the slaughter of innocent Americans at our consulate in Benghazi, Libya on a day that should be sacred September Eleventh but with unprovoked attacks against Americans continuing, remains notorious.

Marking the Mountain

Mount Fuji is more than a peak but a symbol emblematic of the nation of Japan. Japan has enjoyed relative prosperity for the last couple of generations but now may find herself on the cusp of economic cataclysm as she faces a mountain of debt. According to Pat Robertson on CBN News, Japan now faces a national debt more than four times larger than her gross domestic product per annum. This level of debt is comparable to the worst basket case countries of Europe whose economies are past the point of no return without massive external help. Unfortunately for Japan, her economy is literally too large for the rest of the world to bail out. There can be no rescue package from outside for the Japanese who will be left to have to sort out the mess of their own creation (or rather that of successive governments that the people there elected) for themselves.

Because Cats Jump

America commemorates an act of treachery today, just as it does on December Seventh, when we mark the sneak attack by the Empire of Japan on Pearl Harbor. One of the most important lessons of September Eleventh, Two Thousand and One and also of that notorious December day in 1941, is that vigilance must never rest and defense and intelligence must always be national priorities. Another lesson is that fanatics despise our liberty and prosperity and are willing to die to attack us. Americans must remain alert to every threat, and Islamism is at the moment, the gravest menace to the security of our nation.

Europe Leveraging Debt

The European Central Bank is going to buy Euro Bonds thereby monetizing what otherwise would (and should) be worthless paper. The United States is engaged in a similar folly, buying our own Treasury instruments, effectively buying debt with more debt. This practice is of course an act of last resort which will only worsen recovery prospects for America and which can not ultimately prevent Greece from being forced out of the Euro and may not save Spain either.

Osprey on Okinawa

Some residents of Okinawa are protesting the US plan to deploy Osprey aircraft on the American base there. The Japanese who live near the base will surely have to contend with more noise and disruption in their lives once the Osprey start training and missions but overall, Japan has gained a huge net benefit from the presence of United States forces there. Japan has been able to shift much of the cost burden of their self-defense to the US Treasury while deterring the Soviet Union from aggression in the bad old days. In more recent times, Japan has had little to worry about from Red China or North Korea because America was still providing a security blanket against any potential threat made against Japan. I am not saying having foreign troops stationed on Japan's soil is not an annoyance and inconvenience to the local population but Japan, after all did lose a war her militarists had started, and the people of Japan have gained far more than than they lost by having America rebuild them after World War II as an industrial powerhouse of a democracy with the US absorbing that cost and saving them billions of yen that would otherwise have to be spent on homeland defense.

Dismantling Dad's America

In my Father's America, there was a certain stigma to those who, of their own accord, allowed themselves to become dependent on government. In Dad's heyday, jobs were there for the taking. In my Father's schooldays, God was in the classroom, it was safe to walk the streets, and people did not even have to lock their doors at night. Our current leader mocks that "black and white" era and wants to project nuance on every situation. America as she was founded is right. The Islamic Republic of Iran as conceived was wrong and is only growing more dangerous as her nuclear project advances. Dad knew falsehood when he heard it and at the Democrat Convention so recently concluded, I am certain my Father would have aptly declared, "That is a bunch of baloney".

Doubt, Debt, Deceit

The Democrat Party concluded their nominating convention with more pap with Barack Hussein Obama politicizing the killing of Osama bin Laden in a video presentation and then discussing the United States military like a welfare program in his acceptance speech. The Democrats promise the dole dwellers more proverbial "candy", they push universal college education for Americans with massive debt piling up on students and few jobs waiting for graduates, and while paying lip service to private sector success, Democrats demonize the successful. While this slick production of a convention was taking place, the US national debt rose above sixteen trillion dollars. The most remarkable aspect of all the ring kissing the dinosaur media do for Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party is that the main stream press fail to mention that this debt is unprecedented in all of human history, now exceeds America's gross domestic product, and is absolutely unsustainable. For the United States to survive as the nation she was founded, Mitt Romney must win the Presidency this November.

Bill Clinton's Convictions

In what may be a blow to hopes of gaining some of the still undecided votes for the GOP, William Jefferson Blythe Clinton gave his full-throated endorsement to Barack Hussein Obama at last night's Democrat Convention. Of course, take what Bill Clinton says with a grain of salt- if Clinton told me it was going to be a sunny day, I would carry an umbrella.

A National Disgrace

The real face of the Democrat Party is not the well-dressed, impeccably turned out people at the Charlotte convention, but the warmed over hippies of the Occupy Movement. The Occupy crowd is the true face of "soak the rich", make the productive feed the parasites ethos that is concealed at the Democrat Convention but is, have no doubt, the guiding ethos of Barack Hussein Obama and the national Democrat Party. Only those who want to rely on the dole and like being dependent on government should be happy about the direction Democrats are taking. Remember dear friends, John F. Kennedy lowered taxes at a time when Democrats were overtly pro-growth and knew what it took to really stimulate the economy. If you want more dole dwellers relying on Federal aid, keep Obama in office, but if you want more private sector job creation, give Romney a chance.

A Vague Recollection

Do you remember that in spite of the September 11, 2001 carnage and destruction and the Afghanistan and Iraq wars that ensued that before the Democrats took control of Congress in 2006, America was experiencing prosperity and near statistical full employment under the widely despised George W. Bush? The Democrat Party sure hope you forget these facts and do not recognize the full ramification of the success Bush had and the pattern of failure that Barack Hussein Obama refuses to take any responsibility for and always, with the help of his dinosaur media minions, blames on his predecessor.

The Killing Kind

Do not be fooled gentle reader: when the Democrat Party says they are "for women" what they really mean is that they are for abortion. The Party about to begin its convention supports abortion on demand, for any reason or no reason at all, including the especially brutal partial birth abortion. The Democrats have two holy cows that must be an affront to God, those being abortion here, there, and everywhere and a determination to pervert traditional marriage by extending that sacred rite to homosexuals.

Road to Rags

To those voters Barack Hussein Obama is trying to lure with the bitter appeal to class envy, if government confiscates the earnings of those who have more than you, does what is taken from the rich somehow land in your pocket? The Internal Revenue Service certainly has the power to strip away wealth, but by impoverishing the wealthy, the less industrious are not made rich. Taking the ability to hire and create more jobs away from those in the private sector who formerly could create them does not lift the economy. Government making the rich poorer in no way makes the poor any richer.

Mitt Versus Mutt

Mitt Romney transported his dog in a carrier on top of a vehicle during his early married years because his car was filled with his wife and young sons. Thankfully the animal made the trip safely. Team Obama including dinosaur media surrogates tried to make much of the incident, to portray Romney as an irresponsible dog-hater until the new media found Barack Hussein Obama's own words that he dined on dogs when he lived in Indonesia. Mitt Romney really likes dogs while Obama finds them very satisfying with sambal.
