Why Obama is NOT Robin Hood

The current atmosphere of left wing rage suggests to the public that Barrack Hussein Obama is just getting back at the "rich" to give to the "poor." This must mean that Barrack Hussein Obama is the incarnation of "Robin Hood." Examples include the "Stimulus Bill," "The Mortgage Bailout," and the ongoing rape of our economy by Obama's government. This is yet another up-side-down twisted media misinterpretation that is flying right past those in our country who have not read the book or don't understand the truth of the book of Robin Hood.

Robin of Locksley is the hero of a well known novel by Howard Pyle. The premise of the book is that a decent man is outraged by unjust taxing of the townsfolk by a usurper to the throne, Prince John. Because of this, Robin sets about to rob the rich (read government officials) and give back to the poor ( the townsfolk that are heavily-taxed by the Sheriff of Nottingham). In the case of this story, the "rich" are the politically elite class who have, through force, taken the properties and money from everyday citizens. Got that? It is the powerful government in the story who represents the "rich." The correct analogy is that Barrack Hussein Obama is the usurper to the throne who is robbing the townsfolk of their properties and their money.

Somewhere along the way, this story has been abominated to incite class warfare in America. People have been indoctrinated to believe that the "rich" are bad, and the "poor" are innocent victims of the "rich." If you are even remotely financially well from your hard work and enterprise, you are the bad guy. You must have gotten there by abusing people. You are a slime-bucket. You must be vilified and reviled in order to make the "poor" understand that they are victims.

But folks.....the "rich" in the story
is the government. The story of Robin Hood is not about Jack Welch, former CEO of GE, to use one example. It is about how the government stole from the likes of successful businessmen. It is not about successful businessmen who manage successful corporations who hire people, manufacture goods and services, and keep our economy rolling. It is about political corruption. It is about people who work hard to live and yet the government takes the spoils of that hard work.

While this is a story set in medieval England, the tenets remain true in any age. The inspiration comes from our hero, Robin, the everyday man who puts up the good fight against the heavy-handed force of government usurpers and wins. What has happened today is that the figures in the story have been reversed, as the left-wing liberal socialists are so wont to do. Today, the government, the public schools, and the media have adeptly indoctrinated an entire group of people to believe that the government is Robin Hood and the hard-working business class is the "rich bad guy." This indoctrination is so complete that even some people in the supposedly educated, hard-working, business class have been convinced of some sort of guilt for being successful.

Think about that for a minute. If you can convince multitudes of people that they are guilty of something they didn't do, just imagine the extortion from those people you can commit. Convince a whole nation of hard working people that they are the bad guys to blame for the downfall of America and there is no end to the political confiscation of property and money you can do. This current political class is in the process of the greatest thievery from Americans of their opportunities to survive and succeed by stealing from the working class to give to those who produce little or nothing. Robin Hood was not Karl Marx, and is not Barrack Hussein Obama. Robin Hood is the example of our Founding Fathers who saved us from the likes of Karl Marx, Obama, and the heavy-handed force of government elites.

So, who will be the real Robin Hood? Some of us are looking for him.

Tribute to Rick Santelli

"Tribute to the Wall Street Bull"
Oil on Canvas Panel
Contact to Purchase

I had another title for this guy, but as I was painting him yesterday a wonderful outburst was taking place in Chicago by Rick Santelli, a commentator on CNBC. Watch him here The Wall Street Bull may be temporarily out to pasture, but I am a free market capitalist and am praying the he comes running back at some point in our lives, sooner rather than later. It isn't as if I have had tons of money in the stock market...just one small IRA that has been decimated by the Socialists who ruined the banks. (Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, etc.) What that Wall Street Bull represents to me is that American businesses are flourishing and people are living well. That, in my mind, is a great thing. While it doesn't fit the stereotype of "artist," I am an artist with a business. Besides art for art's sake, art is a business. No different than manufacturing any other product. The current bogus administration of our government is doing everything in its power to ruin freedom and the financial health of our country. I am watching a travesty beyond anything that I could have ever imagined. God bless Rick Santelli for his eloquent outrage at that moment yesterday. He spoke for the majority of Americans who are now held hostage to a Marxist / Socialist / Fascist tyranny. As Rick said yesterday, "Are you listening, President Obama???"

My first title was, "Beware of 'Being' Over the Hill." I was thinking it would make a funny greeting card for a guy's birthday. In fact, if you know a guy who is having a birthday soon, this would be a very nice present....he can hang it in his office to remind him of his strength!! I had a lot of fun painting him and love the strength he conveys. Art cannot thrive under tyranny.

Christians Taught to Steal

There is a quote that is attributed to Abraham Lincoln that goes like this: "You can't help the poor by destroying the rich."

Whether or not Lincoln said this has been questioned. But nonetheless, the tenet stands.

The following quote is from the late Dr. Adrian Rogers (1931-2005) who was the pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church and founder of Love Worth Finding Ministries.

"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

So I tackle the hard subject of what Christians in America are being taught about the role of our government. As far as I know from my Christian teachings, Christ was all about personal charity and compassion for the downtrodden. Period! The key word there being 'personal.' Christ, as far as I know, did not suggest that a government bureau or the reigning class should have the right to take from some people to give to others. There is no biblical teaching that I can find where God says it is O.K. to steal from rich people to give to poor people. Or that says, it's O.K. to steal from anyone, rich or middle class, to give to someone else. In fact, biblical scripture teaches exactly the opposite.

Somewhere along the way, Christian churches in America have nearly collectively decided to condemn wealth, create an atmosphere of guilt among the middle class, and encourage people to tolerate the intolerable. Ministers are admonishing Americans for their own hard earned livings and telling them, in order to be a "good Christian," they must support the designated poorer class through government policies. Ministers tell their flocks to vote for diversity, give understanding to criminals, tolerate other faiths who are sworn to kill Christians, and tolerate all kinds of behaviors that are anti-Christian. Affirmative Action is one example of this. (Ask Thomas Clarence, Thomas Sowell, or Walter E. Williams what they think of that dastardly scheme.) Welfare is another. Medicaid and Medicare are further examples. Social Security is yet another example. The Community Reinvestment Act, which has caused the most recent economic crisis, is another current example. Socialized Health Care is on the horizon as yet another. On and on and on.

So, I would like to ask good Christians across our country, what gives the government the right to steal from you to give to another? Can you recognize the difference between theft and charity? Do you know the difference between force at the point of a gun and a gift from the heart? What is the proper role of government? Where in the Constitution does it say that stealing from some people to give to others is the way of our America?

And asking another serious question, why would ministers do this? This push toward government collectivism was not part of my religious catechism when I was growing up. Church teachings used to be about your personal commitment to God's laws, not about giving over your spiritual or physical energies to a government agency. Do you think it might have something to do with protecting themselves from government intervention...i.e. if they don't play the government game, will they lose their exempt tax status? Said another way, what would happen to these churches if ministers actually stood up to the government and if preachers told the truth about government stealing? When did being a good Christian become a reason to vote for force from government to take from my neighbor to give to someone else? Theft by proxy? Do you suppose God thinks that is just fine?

There is something going on in the way of collusion, either voluntary or not, between the Christian Churches in America and the government. Some invisible pressure is being brought to bear. The successful are being told to feel guilty by both the churches and the government. That much is clear. The middle class is being told to feel guilty for living in a country that used to afford opportunities for all. The entire country is being told to be ashamed for living a better life than those poor third world countries who struggle or those poor in our midst who didn't work as hard as I did, or as hard as you did. Our hard working citizens are being told it isn't fair that we have what we worked to earn, but rather we have too much. We are being told in churches and by government to feel guilty about everything, the air we breathe, the land we till, the homes in which we live, the goods we manufactured, the ability to buy what we need, the very life we live. And churches, along with government are in the business of playing on the guilt they try to make you feel. And, in the process, the churches and the government now are holding hands in a collective propaganda operation to fleece the flocks.

Well, I guess I'm not playing the game. I don't feel guilty. I feel grateful for the life God gave me to live in a country for some years that recognized that God blessed us with this gift, along with the lives and blood spilled to save us in defense of it. I don't believe that gives the government the right to steal from me to give to others without my consent. I have no choice in the matter as long as I have some income from my work. The government, politicians, have taken that right by force. That is not God's law. That is not to say, I don't believe in charity. I do. But I don't believe in theft. I don't believe God says I need to regret and feel bad about whatever small successes I have had in life. I don't think you should either.

Wind turbines taking toll on birds of prey
By John Ritter, USA TODAY
ALTAMONT PASS, Calif. — "The big turbines that stretch for miles along these rolling, grassy hills have churned out clean, renewable electricity for two decades in one of the nation's first big wind-power projects.

But for just as long, massive fiberglass blades on the more than 4,000 windmills have been chopping up tens of thousands of birds that fly into them, including golden eagles, red-tailed hawks, burrowing owls and other raptors.

The size of the annual body count — conservatively put at 4,700 birds — is unique to this sprawling, 50-square-mile site in the Diablo Mountains between San Francisco and the agricultural Central Valley because it spans an international migratory bird route regulated by the federal government. The low mountains are home to the world's highest density of nesting golden eagles."

Here we are four years later and who is listening? The information above is not new. And it is ongoing. Meanwhile a whole lot of birds are biting the dust thanks to this insane push for "wind power." Not to mention the visual blight the turbines create. The so called 'environmentalists' have a huge hypocrisy problem. While they jump up and down and yell about "green" energy solutions, they are creating nothing more than fat bank accounts for themselves and their chosen few suppliers of this 'so called' "green" energy. They try to make you believe that they are on the side of wildlife and how the planet will collapse in short order if you don't buy into their schemes. The sorry thing is that they are stealing your taxes to support their very flawed agenda. By creating a false crisis, a lot of fat cat politicians and schemers are getting rich producing nothing of value from your hard work.

This Informative Article from the National Center for Policy Analysis

An excerpt here: "How many dead birds equal a dead fish equals an oil spill?" Ten thousand cumulative bird deaths from 1,731 MegaWatts of installed U.S. capacity is the equivalent of 4.4 million bird deaths across the entire capacity of the United States electric market (approximately 770 gigawatts). A 20 percent share of U.S. capacity, a figure that the American Wind Energy Association put forward some years ago in congressional hearings (see above), would equate to 880,000 cumulative bird deaths. Calculated on an average operating basis, the number would rise severalfold."

And this:

Other Environmental Drawbacks

"A distinct air emission problem of wind capacity is created when a new project is built where there is surplus electric generating capacity. Since large wind farms require thousands of tons of materials, virtually all of the air emissions associated with the electricity used to make these materials (such as cement or steel) must be counted against the air emissions "saved" once the farm comes on line and displaces fossil fuel-generated output. For example, a recently announced Zond wind farm of 40 to 45 effective megawatts is composed of 150 wind turbines weighing 35 tons each or just over 10 million pounds. The entire electricity requirement for these materials (cement, steel, fiberglass, etc.) must be estimated before assigning an air emission factor. To calculate a net emission savings, that factor must be subtracted from the air emission reduction once the wind project comes online."

The sad thing for me is twofold. First, I love birds. If I could grow wings, I would. Second, I know people who think they are friends of birds, who belong to "Bird Watching" organizations, yet who voted for this President and his "Green Energy" nonsense. I guess they don't realize it when they are at odds with their own goals and mindlessly vote for the "feel good" agenda. I wonder how the brain can disconnect from logical consequences. I am having a very hard time suffering these fools.

Enemies More Domestic

"How can we account for our present situation unless we believe that men high in this Government are concerting to deliver us to disaster? This must be the product of a great conspiracy, a conspiracy on a scale so immense as to dwarf any previous such venture in the history of man. A conspiracy of infamy so black that, when it is finally exposed, its principals shall be forever deserving of the maledictions of all honest men." Joseph McCarthy

After years of the left and the media demonizing Senator Joseph McCarthy, time has proven that McCarthy was correct in his allegations against the Communist threat infiltrating the American government. This actually was proven a few years ago (look at this) so Hollywood launched a movie (look at this) on the spot, starring George Clooney, to once again smear McCarthy and undermine the truth. For more info google search "Venona Secrets."

The oath taken by government officials in current times to "protect America from enemies both foreign and domestic" has become nothing more than a joke because of Socialist corruption in our government. So many of them are "domestic" enemies, that they might as well be swearing on a stack of comic books. In that light, I want to say I admire Joseph McCarthy and his courage to expose the Communist plotters who wanted to take down the United States.

Why am I concerned with this now? You know the saying...those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. As I've said previously, I am not usually prone to jump onto "conspiracy" theories. I don't like walking around the earth paranoid. It isn't comfortable and not my usual nature. But I also can't just sit here and watch my country get lied to day after day and watch my children's futures just get sucked down the tubes.

But, as my post (two posts down) shows, there are "card carrying" Socialists in our government.
Is a Socialist a Communist? Well....what do you think? Ask Marx!

When Communism got slapped down in the 1930's the ideology did not go away. It morphed. The very insidious enemy of the United States decided to change it's vocabulary to make it more palatable. (put a whole lotta ketchup on that cardboard sandwich.) They realized they weren't going to subvert America in one generation. They took the "death by inches" (also known as "death by a thousand cuts) approach. They decided they would hide the "Communist" moniker and go for the "Socialist" nomenclature. They have co-opted the word Democracy, making you think that Democracy means a guaranteed result of wealth for everyone. Now, instead of calling themselves "Liberals" they call themselves "Progressives." So clever they are. What person is going to say they don't want "Progress?" If you don't want "Progress," why, you must be an old fuddy duddy stick in the mud who is passe.....think "Bitter Clinger." One of their most effective strategies is to redefine the language. And they are succeeding...unless you recognize it and call them exactly what they are: lying Communist traitors.

There are enemies of freedom afoot in our government. They don't believe in freedom. They believe in Communism, totalitarian government rule over all of us. They don't believe in free enterprise. They believe in "Nationalizing" every business / industry in the country. They are doing it by way of "a thousand cuts."
The "Stimulus Bill" of today might as well be incorporated into the "Communist Manifesto." That is exactly what it is, in its original form.

If the public would or could wise up to the vocabulary tricks of the Socialists who are taking over our country...then maybe we would have a chance to save ourselves. But as long as Hollywood, the media, and the politicians are going to lie, cheat, steal, subvert freedom, pervert the language we speak, and all the it "Progress" (Hope and Change, see my definitions in previous post)...the air is filled with the stench of a dying corpse of what used to be America.

If you are reading this and you have any courage at all, use your voice to speak out against them. They are showing themselves brashly and with arrogance. You can make a difference by telling them exactly what you think of their Communist / Socialist language.

Talk like a Socialist!

I love language. That is one of the reasons, I suppose, that I am writing this blog. But I hate liars and I despise people who use language to manipulate people. I love the truth. Getting to the truth involves defining words.

Giving the Devil his due...the Devil is very clever at fooling people and using words to twist the meanings of things. In short, the Devil is a very good liar, a slick salesman, a silver tongued orator, and a manipulator of the worst kind. I've been watching the twisting of language happen over the last several years through the "Political Correct" crowd in the media. They demonize capitalism and conservatism. They demonize individual accomplishments. They cheer "collective" endeavors. They hate traditional mores. The family has been re-defined to be the "Village." It is all very deliberate and conniving .....and I'm sick of it. I am going to call a "spade a spade" and show you how to be aware of a few of their clever tricks. The first one in the list below is how the Leftists took control of our children's word comprehension in the public school system. It is called Whole Language. Beneath the list is some info on that. Enjoy!! You are now the wiser!!!

Here is a list of Leftist Words and Phrases:

Whole Language (Use our Social engineering dictionary or you will be kicked out of school! The opposite of Half Language?)

Smart Growth (Your property will conform to our dictates or else..If you don't go along you must be dumb.)

Sustainable Environment (Otherwise you are doomed..Give me your wallet)

Lands' Conservancy (Thou shalt not be greedy, you lousy Capitalist property owners. We know who you are, we will tax you to death and, then, we'll take land off your hands)

Free Choice Act (Means you have no "Choice" whatsoever. Join the Union or go jobless)

Progress /Progressive (Think "Back in the USSR!" Old Marxism cloaked in the word "Progress")

Economic Justice (The wealthy and productive will pay for your laziness)

Social Justice (same as above)

Cap and Trade (Do as I say or I'll tax your business and take it away from you at the point of a gun)

Common Good (If you wish to succeed on your own, you are a selfish bastard)

Hope (We will tell you what to hope for, it's for your own good)

Change (Throwing away the lessons of history and leading the blind into the abyss)

Fairness Doctrine (If you dare speak out against Socialism, we are going to shut you up, stuff a sock in your mouth, and put you in a closet)

Published in January 2009 at the Socialist Standard, Journal of the Socialist Party of Great Britain:
"For over one hundred years the task of the socialist party has been to counter the propaganda of the status quo. Not just in ideological terms but in trying to restore meaning to political language. Even our opponents have to admit that the meaning they give to words like socialism, democracy, human nature, economics, history and politics itself is very different from ours."

From 2001, an excellent article by Joe Larson

And this on Whole Language Reading Concepts in the Public Schools: Entire Article Here

The politically active WL (Whole Language) teacher uses reading instruction as a convenient vehicle to aid and abet the establishment of socialist goals, policies, values, and ideals. Through bona fide WL reading instruction, students learn how to rise up and challenge “the interests and values of the Anglo, white, middle and upper classes,” Harry Giroux proclaims in the Catalog.[2] They are prepared to oppose, writes Michael W. Apple, “the political right of the United States” by being ready to use their collective powers to change the world so that democratic [read ‘socialist'] power replaces corporate power.”[3] Elimination of the present “economic, cultural, and social policies of business and industry” clearly is the ultimate aim of WL reading teaching.[4]

More than just your average Socialists / Marxists in American Government

I continue to dig beyond the baseline of media information. Fortunately the rats and termites are leaving their residue all over the internet. This makes them easy to find. Their stated goals and successes thereof are all over the place. They like to brag. I am happy to report though that I am finding a lot of other people are onto the infestation and have been for some time. I am late for the party, but catching up

So the question I have been asking is, "how are these Socialists getting the American Congress to implement their policies?" Answer: Socialists have infiltrated the American Congress and Government Agencies. REAL Socialists. And proud of it. No we are not just imagining this. Wishing it could be just the fictional imaginings of a worried American Mom, I honestly had no idea of the infiltration of these people into our government. The questions I had asked for years were more can sane people suggest such horrible laws? And what the devil are these idiots doing? How can they be so stupid? Turns out they are insane, devilish, and insanely stupid. They are also political predators. Predators are nothing to sneeze at folks. You don't mess with rats and termites, you just kill them. So now I know it....and now I can only wonder at how we are going to rid ourselves of this scourge. Not a murderous sort of person here, but I do think we need some Constitutional lawyers and some trials for treason, and some public hangings to make the point. Too bad I am not likely to see that....however, I stick with the Constitutional lawyers part. And the lawsuits should begin tomorrow. I'm missing McCarthy at this point.

1. The definitions of Socialism and Communism
2. The list of known Socialists in our Congress
3. Some Articles on the Socialists and who they are with regard to the United States.

A. "Socialism" is 3:

1. a political system in which production and distribution of goods are controlled by 'the people' according to 'equity and fairness' rather than market principles;
2. a Socialist political movement, typically advocating the end to private property ownership and exploitation of workers;
3. a Marxist system in which pay and benefits are distributed according to 'need' rather than according to work done; and
4. the intermediate Proletarian Revolution phase as society changes from Capitalism to Communism.

Socialism's end game is Communism. Communism is the opposite of our Republican form of national government. Communism requires abandoning Constitutionally-protected rights of individual American Citizens for the "common good" of collective society.

See: Socialism, by Ludwig von Mises. (The complete online version of the book by Ludwig von Mises. "The book is one of the most famous analysis and criticism of socialism, including all varieties of socialism and its economic, cultural and social aspects."); see also: Chart of U.S. Socialist History, 1900-1990, taken from Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) website (originally posted in FR by TaRaRaBoomDeAyGoreLostToday!); see also: Encyclopedia of Marxism.

B. The Communist Manifesto demands the following:

1. end of private property ownership (Implemented);
2. progressive and heavy taxation (Implemented);
3. end of inheritance rights (Implemented through heavy taxation);
4. government confiscation of property of emigrants and rebels (Implemented);
5. a national central bank (Implemented);
6. government control of transportation and communication (Implemented);
7. government ownership of factories and agriculture;
8. government control of labor;
9. corporate mega-farms to replace family farms (Implemented to a large degree);
10. regional planning (Implemented); and
11. government control of education (Implemented).

Porkulus Bill

"Nancy Pelosi serving up the Feast for Democrat Special Interest Groups"
©Cheryl A. Pass

Give 'em and inch and they'll take a mile! My mother used to say that....the inch and the mile thing. It fits so well in this instance, the "stimulating" left-wing socialist program bill before the congress. It would be a joke if it weren't for the serious thievery and slimy, underhanded, disgusting, deceiving, hypocritical, fraudulence of the democrats. As most of you know it has nothing to do with getting the American economy back on track, but rather stealing the livelihoods of several generations to pay for the unconstitutional bureaucratic big brotherhood of political thugs.

When your liberal "friends" tell you how happy and "hopeful" they are, about their new president and their majority in the congress, you can ask them, "Do you know you voted for trillions of dollars in more entitlement programs that are
bankrupting the country?" After years of bashing George Bush on the subject of running up deficits, you can now ask them,"Do you know that your President and Congress are in process of tripling the deficits?"

When they tell you they are so happy to see an administration that is going to be "fair," you can ask them, "Since when is stealing fair?" and, "Where is that in the constitution?"

What you can your congressional reps and tell them NO NO NO on the stimulus bill!!! Do it. You can find their contact information by google search. Their congressional websites have email contact isn't hard to do. Just do it!!

Captured from another conservative warrior blog, here are some stats:from Fort Hard Knox
According to the Wall Street Journal:

* Only 12 cents out of every dollar is for growth stimuli (which doesn’t go into effect for years in some cases)
* $600 million is to buy themselves new “green” cars (even though they already spend $3 billion per year)
* $252 billion is for people who do nothing: $81 billion for Medicaid, $36 billion for unemployment benefits, $20 billion for food stamps, and $83 billion for people who don’t pay income tax
* $54 billion will go to “ineffective” government programs (reported by the Office of Management and Budget or the Government Accountability Office)
* $66 billion goes to the Department of Education

It gets worse. According to CNS News and Fox News:

* $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple including illegal aliens since social security numbers can’t be checked
* $335 million for STDs
* $4.19 billion in “neighborhood stabilization activities” such as ACORN
* $10 million for bike and walking trails
* $200 million for plug-in car stations
* $400 million for climate change research
* $600 million for grants for diesel emission reduction
* $650 million for “alternative energy technologies”
* $1.5 billion for construction of “green schools”
* $2.7 billion would go toward embryonic stem cell experimentation
* $75 million for smoking cessation
* $246 million over 11 years for investors in big budget movie projects
* $50 billion to the National Endowment for the Art
* $150 million for bees called “honey insurance”
* $20 million for “fish barriers”
