This is going to be my last post for a little while. There are so many bloggers and websites who are doing such a fantastic job of exposing the Marxist lies of Obama and his cronies, that I am not sure my small voice is adding anything to the din. I read so many articles all day and concern myself with writing this blog, that I am missing out on my painting and various other necessary tasks.

When I began this blog I felt that America was not getting the message of just how dangerous Obama, Soros, the Progressives who have infiltrated our country, and the Socialists in Congress are. I think that word is getting through now, thankfully, so my small contribution is maybe not as necessary as I thought it was.

The president of the United States loves "useful idiots." They are his lifeblood. Without them he has no one to manipulate and fool. He lives to lie to them. It's his favorite game. It is his forte. The State of the Union address on Wednesday evening was a perfect example of his double speak, contradictions and outright lies. And if he came right out and told the truth of who he is and what he stands for, the majority American public would have fought hard against him and never even thought of pulling the lever for this guy. So he turns people into "useful idiots," which keeps his act on the stage.

This is why it is so important that people keep doing the research, listening to the voices of freedom, and speaking out against the tyranny of the left. The middle class are the lifeblood of America, the America Obama hates. We stand in his way. We don't like liars and thieves. We especially get mad when someone wants to tear down our country and tear up the Constitution. We will hang tough and eventually rid ourselves of this scourge, but it is going to take a lot of hard work and some time to undo the damage.

I may post occasionally, now and then, but not so regularly as before. Meanwhile, please keep up the fight and keep reading the sites that give you all of the truth behind the scenes.
Thanks...'til later..

Several times in my posts here on Obama, I have mentioned George Soros as the man behind the curtain. It occurred to me that some of you reading this blog may not know of Soros, who he is, and why I tell you he is the magical puppet-master controlling our government and our elections.

So I send you to this information site: DISCOVER THE NETWORKS

Click on that link and read a brief overview of who Soros is, who he funds, and how he skews elections. If you thought Obama was just a manifestation of the Chicago mob, you would be wrong. He is where he is because of George Soros. You can bet Obama / Soros will not back down until they completely destroy the United States of America.

Just a reminder of how and why we found ourselves in this mess. It isn't an accident. It isn't because Americans hated George Bush. It isn't as if America deserves what it is getting. It is orchestrated from behind the scenes, from under a rock, by a master manipulator, and not because we are such a terrible nation, but because our success is hated by George Soros and those who are connected to him, including the media.

Americans don't deserve destruction by a billionaire Nazi who, by proxy, is pulling the Obama strings. The recent Supreme Court ruling allowing corporations free speech regarding future elections could help throw off Soros' influence peddling. And that is, no doubt, what rubs Obama so much on that ruling. He is fuming that his benefactor will have some competition in the influence peddling game. The benefactor is fuming. Last election Soros held all of the cards. Next go round, there will be others with some money speaking out against the Socialist take-over of our country. (God willing) You see, free speech is an anathema to the devil....he hates the truth, so he will shut up anyone who speaks it against him.

Go Judge Alito!!!! I'm proud of you!!!

Added info from a Big Journalism article written by Kyle-Anne Shiver:
Click here to read

Here is an excerpt:
The Soros-Obama “remaking America” agenda also got a huge blow last week from the Supreme Court. As Richard Poe and David Horowitz outlined in their book, Shadow Party, the fundamental control of the Democratic Party has shifted away from union, corporate and local political machines to a range of NGOs, largely funded by George Soros. Soros nearly single-handedly financed the lobbying efforts to pass McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform. In so doing, he was able to harness far greater political control for himself. Now that large portions of the law have been deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, a fight will be necessary to salvage his leverage. President Obama has already signaled that this fight will be one of his own priorities."



C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) wrote a great book called "The Screwtape Letters." The book is an exchange between Screwtape, and experienced demon, and his nephew Wormwood, who is an apprentice devil. The letters are written by Screwtape advising Wormwood on how to manipulate a human patient. It exposes the workings of a devious creature on his methods of mind control over a human being with an illness who is trying to find strength in a seriously difficult situation.

This is what I thought of this morning as I reflected on Obama's lengthy lying speech last evening. "The Screwtape Letters" and Cloward and Piven, who happen to be the embodiment of Uncle Screwtape in our contemporary moment of difficulties. I don't know if I have personally ever seen a president who is more condescending or who speaks out of both sides of his mouth more than this one. He is either completely stupid (which I doubt), or he believes this country is made up of dumb schmucks who will swallow anything. If you think of our America as the ailing patient looking for help and strength to overcome near fatal afflictions, and if you see the lies that Obama tries to perpetrate on the citizens of this country, you will understand why I thought of that book.

The double-talk is deliberate. The obfuscation is deliberate. The insidious, smarmy, condescension is intolerable. The connections to past slides into hell are obvious. The nods to Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, the Muslim radicals, the Unions, the anti-American left, are telling. The dishonoring of our country is disgusting at least, impeachable at most. The coddling of terrorists is dangerous. The micromanagement of individuals is unacceptable and criminal. The destruction of free markets and corporations is fascism. The ideology of this president is so anti-American that he might as well be speaking from Nazi Germany in 1939. All we fought against, from the 1700's revolution through WWII, has come to reign terror on our country from within.

Our citizens are aware of this insane monstrous lie that is our president. (I just can't make myself capitalize that word today.) The question now is what can we do to protect ourselves from him and his henchmen? I would advise waiting it out and praying to God for protection. I still advise the prayer part, but I sincerely advise we begin doing all we can to spread the word, work for candidates that can stop this coup, and thwart this administration at every opportunity. It is going to be too late to save the ship without immediate and drastic moves from the electorate, from citizens, from patriots, from us.

In closing, I want to thank C.S. Lewis, George Orwell, Ayn Rand, Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, John Stossell, (all other messengers of freedom and truth) and especially our founding fathers who gave us a blue print for freedom and life. Hang on folks. The roller coaster is going down at the moment...we can pray it is going to go back up sometime (sooner rather than later).

And speaking to Uncle are a very clever fellow, but God is greater.

I remember once, some long time ago, my older brother in a moment of extreme frustration yelled, "Look, I'll play by the rules if someone would just tell me what the rules are!" He was in the middle of a changing landscape where he had based his life on a set of rules which kept moving away from him, rules that kept him at a disadvantage. He was finding out that everybody had some arbitrary set of rules requiring him to adapt to the unfamiliar and uncomfortable.(Sort of like the book, "Who Moved My Cheese," where you are in a constant sea of change, trying to catch up with the next set of requirements.)

This came to me as I was reading an article on ethnic quotas over at American Thinker The article says:

"The Boston Globe reports that the University of Massachusetts is setting up a med-school set-aside program: "Under an initiative set to be finalized today, the state's only public medical school [i.e., at UMass] will partner with UMass campuses in Boston, Amherst, Lowell, and Dartmouth to create a joint baccalaureate-MD program that would ensure admission for aspiring doctors from underrepresented ethnic and socioeconomic groups. . . . The medical school will set aside 12 slots in its 125-student, first-year class for qualified students from groups underrepresented among Massachusetts doctors. Those groups include African-Americans, Hispanics, certain Southeast Asians, and Cape Verdeans, Brazilians, and other Portuguese speakers. Students of any ethnic background from low-income families or those among the first in their families to attend college would also qualify."

I am averse to affirmative action and have always been. (There were better and other options to get blacks in inner cities up to the education levels of the norm.) After years of Head Start, Smart Start, and g'zillions of tax dollars thrown at education of the minorities, I can't see that much, if anything, has been accomplished. And now that we have had at least two generations subjected to affirmative action programs, I believe the field has been tilted, not leveled. There now exists a very large chip on the shoulders of minorities and an entitlement mentality. If that is "progress," then you can have it. I don't want it.

I would be willing to bet that announcement from UMASS has everything to do with "Stimulus" money, where the U.S. government will hand out money only IF you play by their rules of affirmative action. So what are the rules?

You can't discriminate on the basis of race or ethnicity....unless you are the Federal Government? And that is what my brother's angst expressed. The rules are different for some people than others. Instead of equal opportunity using the same set of rules for everyone, the government is grading on the curve. The Federal Government for many years now is all about making rules for some people, picking winners and losers, redistributing your money, and using tax dollars to shore up pet programs. (To be fair, it isn't just the Federal Government. Progressives are now in place in all levels of government, local and state.)

The Constitution was written to prevent this very kind of abuse, not that "progressive" government bureaucrats give a tinker's damn about the Constitution. Remember the slogans of the Socialists / Leftists / Progressives / Liberals / Communists are full of anti-Constitutional principles that are cleverly cloaked in language meant to confuse the public. "Social Justice" instead of "Equal Justice," is but one example. "Green Jobs" instead of "Jobs," "Smart Growth" instead of "Economic Growth." They co-opted the education system, the economic system, the judicial system, the banking system, etc. Now going into the health care system and trying to "socialize it" as well. Not equalize it..."socialize" it. Everything the "progressives" do is tilted, graded on the curve of redistribution.

My brother died at age 59, full of angst and frustration. No wonder.

Please take a few moments and watch the 6 minute video below! Listen carefully to what Rep. Paul Kanjorski has to say about the financial crisis during the election of 2008. The video was made in Feb. 2009, but you haven't heard this in the mainstream media.

I don't know if you remember the circumstance just before the election when McCain went flying away from the campaign, back to DC, to address a money crisis while Obama acted cool and said he didn't need to go back to DC because he could stay in touch electronically. The crisis was no big deal to him. He could walk in at the last minute, look like Mr. Aloof and sign onto whatever Bernanke, the Fed, the Treasury, etc. were recommending in the way of borrowing boatloads of money to get us through the crisis, putting America so far into debt we are likely never to get out of it.

This was long ago....over a year ago, but the demeanor of Obama during that time stays with me. The actions of McCain appeared at panic level, while Obama just swaggered his way through it. People took this as "cool-headed" calm in the face of disaster. It was interpreted as leadership quality.

There is no doubt in my mind that someone(s) created that crisis to throw the election. No doubt whatsoever. And there is no doubt in my mind that Obama knew exactly what was going on under the radar on his behalf and had no reason to get his shorts tangled up because it was all planned for his power grab over the government of the United States.

The media, of course, had shushed the story (the under the radar behind the scenes story) because it was all playing into the mainstream media leftist utopian dream of a socialist America. No expose, no in depth search as to what in the devil happened, nothing but trashing McCain and "oh look at that cool Obama." "Isn't he just the type of leader we need?"

So folks, only twice since then have I come across a hint of what that financial crisis was all about. Below is a video from C-Span from February last year that tells you someone(s) was/were sucking as much money as fast as they could out of our banking system in the fall of 2008 before the election. My guess is Soros and his fellow Socialist billionaires were the perpetrators under the radar. My question now is what could prevent this from happening ever again? Another question is will we ever audit the fed? As long as there are forces with that kind of power over our government, We the People are at their mercy. We are pawns in a very high stakes chess game. All of the people who are out of work and who are defaulting on mortgages and who have lost their retirements can thank George Soros and his buddies, thank the Carters, Clintons, Bushes, and Obama for wrecking the middle class and making the poor so much poorer. Socialism is just great isn't it ? (Remember this; Socialism is a two tiered system made up of a few powerful rich and the peons. There is no middle class in Socialism. AND REMEMBER THIS WHILE OBAMA GIVES HIS STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS THIS WEEK. )

In a sea of misleading information and a country that has seemed to have lost its compass, I sometimes think we are living in a chapter from 1984 by George Orwell. And then I come across something that gives me hope that there are still intelligent minds in our midst who are fit to lead our country out of the darkness. I found such a moment today while reading and article by Michael S. Rulle Jr. at Big I share it with you so you can also experience a little glimmer of sanity in an otherwise insane world. The policies below come from a 20 page policy pamphlet written by Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter who is part of the Republican Policy Committee. Thumbs up to Mr. McCotter and the Republican Policy Committee for re-affirming what our country stands for and what the Republican Party is preparing to defend. Read below:

by Michael S. Rulle Jr.
Just what do Republicans stand for?


The Republican Policy Committee has attempted to answer that question. The Committee is chaired by Michigan Congressman Thaddeus McCotter and consists of the ranking members of the five congressional committee chairs and other key members of the Republican caucus. In a clearly written 20 page pamphlet authored by McCotter, the Republicans list five foundational principles and derive from these principles policies which the Republican Party affirmatively supports. These principles, which I see as reminiscent of the stated and implied principles in the Declaration of Independence, are coherent, un-cynical, and necessary. They are:

1. Our liberty is from God not government. (“all men…. are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights”);

2) Our Sovereignty is in our souls not soil. (“…to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”);

3) Our security is in strength not surrender. (The Declaration itself was a document asserting the Colonies right to use its military might in support of its principles);

4) Our prosperity is from the private sector not the public sector. (“that {among these} unalienable rights are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”); and

5) Our truths are self evident not relative. (“….we hold these truths to be self evident”).

Original painting by Cheryl A. Pass

Even after the exposure of emails proving corrupted data and manipulation of findings in the IPCC reports on Climate Change / Global Warming, there are still those who cannot give up the dangerous folly of the environmental alarmism. As I have stated in previous posts, the game is extortion and fraud, not real, factual science. Just to satisfy my chilly January soul, I thought I would remind my cyberspace friends that there is some honest scientific reporting out there. I'm publishing the conclusions of an article cited below so that you may put your worried mind at ease and know we are in a better world than you might have thought.....that is if you've had to suffer through the "sky is falling" lies we've been force fed for the past several years. Read and enjoy!!!

Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide ARTHUR B. ROBINSON, NOAH E. ROBINSON, AND WILLIE SOON Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, 2251 Dick George Road, Cave Junction, Oregon 97523 []
There are no experimental data to support the hypothesis that in - creases in human hydrocarbon use or in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other green house gases are causing or can be expected to cause unfavorable changes in global temperatures, weather, or landscape. There is no reason to limit human production of CO2, CH4, and other minor green house gases as has been proposed (82,83,97,123). We also need not worry about environmental calamities even if the current natural warming trend continues. The Earth has been much warmer during the past 3,000 years without catastrophic effects. Warmer weather extends growing seasons and generally improves the habitability of colder regions. As coal, oil, and natural gas are used to feed and lift from poverty vast numbers of people across the globe, more CO2 will be released into the atmosphere. This will help to maintain and improve the health, longevity, prosperity, and productivity of all people.

The United States and other countries need to produce more energy, not less. The most practical, economical, and environmentally
sound methods available are hydrocarbon and nuclear technologies. Human use of coal, oil, and natural gas has not harmfully warmed the Earth, and the extrapolation of current trends shows that it will not do so in the foreseeable future. The CO2 produced does, however, accelerate the growth rates of plants and also permits plants to grow in drier regions. Animal life, which depends upon plants, also flourishes, and the diversity of plant and animal life is increased.

Human activities are producing part of the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere. Mankind is moving the carbon in coal, oil, and natural gas from below ground to the atmosphere, where it is available for conversion into living things. We are living in an increasingly lush environment of plants and animals as a result of this CO2 increase. Our children will therefore enjoy an Earth with far more plant and animal life than that with which we now are blessed.

A Single Seed Grows Many Branches: ACORN’s Web of Connections in North Carolina

The Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) has woven itself into the fabric of the left in North Carolina. Listed below are short explanations of the ties between the groups illustrated on the above chart. For more detailed information on ACORN NC see

Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN)
ACORN NC – ACORN’s North Carolina arm – has offices in Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte. ACORN NC is a member of Blueprint NCand partners with NC Housing Coalition, NC Policy Watch and the NC Justice Center, among others.

Blueprint North Carolina
Blueprint NC was organized and funded by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. It is a partnership of over 40 progressive (liberal) state-level nonprofits. Its members include NC Justice Center, El Pueblo Inc., NC Policy Watch and ACORN NC.

Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation
The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation funds progressive groups. Among them are El Pueblo Inc., North Carolina Housing Coalition, NC Justice Center and Project Vote.

NC Housing Coalition

Project Vote
Project Vote is ACORN’s voter mobilization arm and has provided legal support, including supporting litigation, for ACORN in a number of states. Project Vote registered more than 1.3 million individuals to vote; many of who were deceased, under the voting age or were fabricated registrants.

A.J. Fletcher Foundation
The A.J. Fletcher Foundation, whose mission is to support progressive nonprofits, gave $205,000 to the NC Justice Center and over $66,000 to the NC Housing Coalition in 2007.

Wade Rathke
Wade Rathke is co-founder of ACORN as well as SEIU Local 100. He served as ACORN’s chief organizer until stepping down in 2008 after his brother Dale Rathke’s embezzled over $1 million dollars from ACORN and it became public. Wade Rathke is also the former director of the Tides Foundation.

State of North Carolina
Over $640,000 of North Carolina taxpayer money wasawarded to the NC Justice Center in 2006. Continuing payments have likely exceeded $1 million. The state also granted $1 million to NACA.

The above article is from the Civitas Institute - apologies, blogger is not letting me create a link at the moment.

This map and information is invaluable to North Carolina residents who are concerned about the infiltration of socialists into our republic. To me it looks like a nest of predatory parasites who are so embedded into our institutions that it will take an act of God to rid ourselves of the scourge.

In defense of Bank of America, I will submit that the bank was forced by the Federal Government to do much of (for) what they are being demonized. I think the map shows a perfect quid pro quo, where the Bank was forced to take the bailout money and then was forced to fork some of it over to Acorn. The Feds forced the banks to take the bailouts. It was the Feds who forced the banks to make the high risk loans to low income people, yet the banks are the ones taking all of the heat for doing what they were told to do. No wonder to me they created derivitives to get rid of the dead weight....if they hadn't done that, the Feds would have taken them over and/or shut them down anyway for lack of viable assets. Ken Lewis was told to go forward with the Merrill Lynch merger and then told to keep his mouth shut to the board on the condition of Merrill Lynch, and now the SEC is suing Bank of America for doing just what the Feds told them to do. Get it? You can't win...Lose lose LOSE! This banking crisis was entirely orchestrated by the Feds (and Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Franklin Raines, etc.) from the beginning.

Our citizens are damned if (we) do, and damned if (we) don't. The government has become the mafia.... You will pay g'zillions for worse health care and if you don't, you will go to jail and we will take all you own. You will pay small fortunes for inferior toxic light bulbs or else!! You will drive an electric tiny can (car) for 30 miles and then plug it into the grid...using more electricity to go shorter distances. You will give up your farm pond to the EPA. You will not exhale without being taxed. The mafia (Chicago or otherwise) is the model now for our government.

Our representatives in DC are no longer our representatives and they don't give a flying flip about what we think or need. Most of them (especially in the majority) are members of the same mafia. And with Acorn stealing elections, I'm not sure how we can get the @@#$$%@!!s out of there.

We need a NC Sovereignty And that may only suffice to hold them back to a degree. It would help. However, it will be next to impossible to get this done, since the Democrats / Socialists are in the majority in the state house and senate and the governorship.

Sorry to be so just doesn't look good to me...
Hang in there folks.

Sometimes, as I am reading through other political blogs, I come across comments from people who are able to articulate my own views and frustrations very well that I want to collect them to remind myself that there are others out there in cyberland who know, as I do, that the Democrats and Obama represent the lowest of the low that have ever walked in the halls of our government. I say "represent" because they aren't the first, but just the latest in a string of communist / leftist / socialist / fascist / progressive diabolical thugs who want nothing but to over-throw the Constitution of the United States of America.

That said, here is a comment I bring to you from a guy named James who wrote on the American Thinker site:

"The whole agenda behind the Health Care Reform Bill, is not better health care, the real purpose is to transfer people’s hard earned money to the power elite in DC and big corporations, The working poor will be obligated by force of law to buy health insurance they do not want and cannot afford or pay a fine and go to jail. Medicare will be slashed which will turn Seniors into second class citizens when it comes to health care. The whole bill is a huge tax on the middle class with no concomitant benefit. The Bill is riddled with back room dirty deals that maggot like politicians who feed on the body politic are hatching under the cover of darkness. The polls already show the majority of the pubic are against this bill. Remember the draft? that wasn’t even a universal mandate. This Bill will impoverish Americans and turn them into slaves of State. The Democrats who are ignoring the will of the people all must go. They are all scum and should be driven out of office."

Well said. I am only somewhat comforted to know that there are a lot of people in this country who feel as strongly as I do on the subject. Small comforts are at least something in a world of bad bad bad news.

Absorbing the news each week has become an overwhelming task, even for those of us who are avidly interested. So much "you know what" has hit the fan this past year that freedom loving Americans can hardly know where to look to find solace. And believe me, readers, that was the goal, i.e. throw so much at the public at once that they will not have time and resources to fight back. "Hide the decline"(a la Climate-gate) ,and hide the bills (legislation we have no part in), hide the truth behind the mask of crisis management blamed on previous administrations. It takes a lot of time and research to discover the underlying truths and schemes going on, and we are finding them in spite of complicit and propagandizing mainstream media outlets. The majority of our citizens truly do not have the time, take the time, or do the research to find out the sources of the propaganda and lies. What we have now in power in the Federal government is classical progressivism. Progressive is a term that is defined by socialism, communism, fascism, and centralized power.

Slow and methodical over the last century was the march of socialists / communists / fascists / progressives / collectivists / liberals (they have so many names it is even hard to keep up with that), until Obama's election when the gears went into overdrive. Over-reaching is much too kind of a term to place on what has become a coup to completely over-throw the Constitution of the United States. Prior to now it has been incremental, the slippery slope, the inch by inch erosion of unalienable rights. Like a slow developing disease, they have gradually weakened the main body of country, so as now the disease can just finish it off in big bites at a time; socialized health care, energy restrictions, political correctness, executive edicts without the consent of the governed, continual reductions of property rights, illegal immigration - amnesty, etc. The centralized power of the Federal government is in full tilt, while individual rights to pursue life, liberty and happiness are becoming a distant dream. Communitarian ideology is the stepping stone to complete tyranny and, God forbid, you should speak out against this tyranny for you will be ridiculed, called a racist bigot, called an extremist, and a selfish uncaring undeserving idiot.

From an editorial on Socialist education written by: Paul Weston
"Propaganda is the most powerful tool in Socialism's obsessive quest for social control and absolute power. Fear of the state is nowhere near as powerful as love of the state, and none more so when the love is conditioned from an early age." (Think Hitler youth) He continues, " We have surrendered any hope of a decent future for our children and grandchildren because we do not wish to be labeled racist, intolerant, xenophobic, nationalistic, or illiberal." (Think forced "diversity," as opposed to freedom of assembly. Think forced "economic justice," "social justice.")

Well, I'm over the name calling and the mockery. And I have discovered the elitists who are trying to pull off this coup in the United States are a growing but still minority of ideologues who belong somewhere within the confines of other historical tyrants / tyrannies such as the failed states of Nazi Germany, Stalin's reign in Russia, Mao's communist elimination of millions of people, Castro, and countless others. You see, the policies of our current administration are just the same, though they try to cloak them in words that don't apply to real life or facts or historical truth. That is what tyrants do. They gain power by convincing a lot of people who don't know history to jump onto their corrupt repetitions of historical failures. They either marginalize or eliminate the opposition. They use words like "reform," "change," "hope," "power to the people," "diversity," "social justice," "sustainability," "believe," economic justice," "let me be perfectly clear," man-caused disaster," etc. You get the gist. Now, if you don't go looking behind the scenes at the players and find out what they mean by these platitudes, you will not have a clue what the real agenda is.

The fact is that over the history of civilization, America is the exception to all of the failed governments and tyrannies which have come and gone. What makes America different is the "consent of the governed," and "unalienable rights granted by God." We the people are supposed to hold the power over our own lives, not Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid, or any of the appointed Czars who are regulating without our consent. They do not own the power. It would be laughable that they think they do, except the situation is now too dire to be funny. American exceptionalism represents the true "progress" over the tyrannies of the past and present, yet the Obama administration wants to use the word "progress" to downgrade America into the abyss of centralized governmental tyranny over us. The propagandized use of words is confusing to a population who has not immersed itself in the study of history enough to understand what is being foisted upon them.

Our country has been under assault for over a century now from "progressives," by whatever name you wish to use. We have only held them back by snips and bits, as they ever so gradually took away our God given liberties. But now they have a shot at the whole pie, thanks to an electorate who didn't do the research, was lied to, and didn't understand what was at stake. The 2010 elections are an opportunity to once again stick some fingers in the dike, but it is going to take a whole lot more effort than that to save the great exception that is our America.

David Brooks reveals his disdain for most Americans in this NYTimes op-ed.

It is important when developing your opinions to gather facts and expose your mind to what others have concluded. I highly recommend you read this David Brooks' op-ed so you may gain insight to the superiority complex that so afflicts the political left in this country. Sometimes I wonder about the psychology of people who gravitate to and define the left, i.e. how on earth do they arrive at such lofty opinions of themselves and demand that everyone else is just stupid?

I found the answer some months ago. It's called the Dunning-Kruger effect:

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which "people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it".[1] The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than actuality; by contrast the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to a perverse result where less competent people will rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."[1]

So, those who disagree with Mr. Brooks on the policies and role of government are not the 'educated class?' Hmmmm....let me see what he means by that.

This is my "educated opinion" of what he means. As an example of what our higher educational institutions are teaching American students, Bill Ayers has been implanted into the higher educational class studies in universities to convince the students that Marxism is the preferred method of governing the masses. What Mr. Brooks means is that Walter E. Williams and Thomas Sowell are not part of the "educated class." Indeed, he is asserting that anyone who disagrees with the oh, so, sophisticated minds coming out of left-leaning universities is just dumber than dumb. What he means is that life experience and common sense are not regarded as enlightened education. What he means is that the Yalies, the Ivy Leaguers, the Harvard grads, are the educated elite and should have dominion over the lowly masses. What he means is that believing in the U.S. Constitution as originally written is just so plebeian and not worthy of consideration as highly educated premise. Mr. Brooks' psychological ploy in his article is the premise that if you side with the left, you must be 'educated.' If you don't, you must be ignorant. My take on that is this; if you fall for his clever ploy, you really are stupid.

Here is the rub. There are uneducated people in this country. There are people who have been indoctrinated, but not educated, in the American public school system since the Federal government began mandating curriculum. There are people who have slipped through the cracks and have been told that the government is their only savior. It is these people the political elite have targeted to be the voting block. The more of these they can create, the more votes they get. (This is why the next big push from the left is amnesty for illegals...mostly uneducated people with no history of American loyalty or understanding of the Constitution......perfect foils for the left.)

Mr. Brooks and his ilk would like to forget and marginalize the rest of America. The middle class in America, especially those over the age of 40 have been educated in the fundamentals of American government. They are not stupid. And they are not deaf, dumb, and blind. The middle class built the country through their energy, creativity, and their strong faith in the U.S. Constitution. These are the "Tea Party" people that Mr. Brooks defines thusly:

The tea party movement is a large, fractious confederation of Americans who are defined by what they are against. They are against the concentrated power of the educated class. They believe big government, big business, big media and the affluent professionals are merging to form self-serving oligarchy — with bloated government, unsustainable deficits, high taxes and intrusive regulation."

Well, for Mr. Brooks' education, I would point out to him that the tenets he just attributed to the Tea Partiers are the tenets of the United States Constitution. And you would be "educated" to know that. The Constitution is against the "concentrated" power of any elite class and especially elitists operating in the Federal Government. He tries to get around this by implying the "uneducated" are against the "educated." Bunk, Mr. Brooks. Oligarchy is not what our republic was created to support. The Tea Party movement is defined by what they are
for, i.e. small government, balanced and restrained budgets, low taxes, and liberty for all......might I add, equal justice....NOT "social justice."

Nice try Mr. Brooks.....we are not as dumb as you think.

I have grabbed this post from WATTS UP WITH I could not resist having a little fun and good news since my previous post today was so glum. This is good news. If only the idiots in congress and our courts and executive branch would wise up and get rid of this carbon tax insanity forever, it would be none too soon for me. I also grabbed one of the comments from this column because the guy said everything I would like to on the subject and said it soooooo well.


French Revolution! Carbon tax ruled unconstitutional just two days before taking effect

29 12 2009

This new French carbon tax was scheduled to go into law on Jan1, 2010. The tax was steep: 17 euros per ton of carbon dioxide (USD $24.40). In a stunning move, and surely a blow to warmists everywhere, the tax has been found unconstitutional and thrown out. Originally found here (Google Translation).

Lord Monckton was kind enough to assist me in deciphering the meaning of the ruling and writes:

In France, if at least 60 Deputies of the House and 60 Senators appeal to the Constitutional Council, it has the power to pronounce on the constitutionality of a proposed law – in the present case, the 2010 national budget of France, which contained enabling provisions (loi deferee) for a carbon levy. The Council found that these enabling provisions were unconstitutional on two grounds: that the exemptions contained within the provisions for a carbon levy vitiated the primary declared purpose of the levy, to combat carbon emissions and hence “global warming”; and that the exemptions would cause the levy to fall disproportionately on gasoline and heating oils and not on other carbon emissions, thereby breaching the principle that taxation should be evenly and fairly borne.

The Press release from the French Constitutional Council is here in English (Google Translated) and in original French

Here’s a Deustch-Welle news article on the reversal.

France’s Constitutional Council says the country’s proposed carbon tax is illegal. This is a severe blow to French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s plans to fight climate change.

France’s Constitutional Council has struck down a carbon tax that was planned to take effect on January 1st. The council, which ensures the constitutionality of French legislation, said too many polluters were exempted in the measure and the tax burden was not fairly distributed.

It was estimated that 93 percent of industrial emissions outside of fuel use, including the emissions of more than 1,000 of France’s top polluting industrial sites, would be exempt from the tax, which would have charged 17 euros per ton of emitted carbon dioxide.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has argued the tax is necessary to combat climate change and reduce the country’s dependence on oil.

However, the council’s ruling is a severe blow to both Sarkozy’s environmental plan as well as France’s budget for 2010. The government now has to find a way to come up with about 4.1 billion euros in revenue that was expected from the tax.

Here is the comment I LOVE:


Hallelujah!! I think it’s time for everyone here to get our acts together, pitch in (30m hits is enough of us to make the money thing less painful) and graciously ask the assistance of the good Lord Monkton to take the key players in all this to task (court). It’s time to get this nonsense thrown out for once and for all! Tax Shmax….it’s the damage all this alarmist bull is doing to my kids’ brains that really gets my back hairs up.

Doesn’t anyone else find this situation as absolutely fundamentally RIDICULOUS as me? I mean really! At what point did the human race get so stupid as to let an obviously bogus hypothesis get this far down the track…..If it wasn’t so absolutely ridiculous it would be hilarious… fundamental logic and a good look at the data could only leave the world population with nothing left but a very feeble case for the precautionary principle.. It’s the emperors new clothes and the boy who cried wolf all rolled into one…but for the fact that the perpetrators of this juggernaut have managed to put most of the worlds people into some sort of a trance! ‘We believe, we believe’…..

How did it ever get to this point? I’m stunned! We have blogs like WUWT that spend every day battling to justify nature…..mind boggling! It’s like one of those experiments where everyone stays in the waiting room as the smoke wafts under a door way and everyone looks at each other waiting for the first person to get out….little sheep baaah baah…

The big players need to go to court and the world needs to be told the outcome! We are causing damage to our society, our kids are growing up thinking they are going to drown and fry at the same time! It all amounts to fraud and it’s inexcusable to let this thing keep playing out the way it is.

The time has come to end this ridiculous charade. It’s time to employ the same tactics that the other side uses, but with truth and logic!

30m hits is a potentially powerful tool if we all mobilize, get our ducks in a row and help someone like Monkton to drive this thing home for once and for all.

I’m sick of having to justify logic to people who believe a man that states on national television that the earth is several million degrees just 2km from the earths surface. What a farce!


The word popped into my mind this morning, one I hadn't thought of for a long time. The word was "subversive." I'm not a typical name-caller and I don't usually go by labels, so I don't go around looking for platitudes to define people. I was actually surprised the word came to me. I looked it up. And I found this from Webster's dictionary online:

sub·ver·sive (-siv)


tending or seeking to subvert, overthrow, or destroy (an established government, institution, belief, etc.)

The next thing that came to my mind was Barry Obama standing there last year saying, "We are five days from fundamentally changing the United States of America."

Subversion was the goal all along. Shame on those who didn't see that. Shame on the voters who didn't take the time to research or pay attention to the aspirations of a subversive candidate. Shame on those who voted for this man deliberately to do this to our country. Shame on our political process that turned up two bad candidates. Shame on allowing Acorn to fraudulently skew elections. Shame on the Congressional Black Caucus who are dyed in the wool communists. Shame has been brought to America by subversive elements who have rigged the system and are systematically taking down our Constitution.

It's January 2, 2010 and all I can think of is, shame has been brought to America by a subversive posing as President of the United States of America.
