The U.S. Senate Needs a Raise!

Darn it, those folks over in the Senate deserve a Raise!

They all work awful hard and We the People just don’t send them enough of our Money.

I willing to bet you need a raise too… so you can understand why They should get one.

But I think a there should be a deal between us, the U.S.Taxpayers, and the fine, honest, integrity filled Senators.

We will give them a Raise, albeit a small one, but a new dress code must go into effect immediately.

They must all dress as Clowns.

I’m willing to be flexible… they can pick any period, or class, they wish.  From Circus to Mime, Rodeo to UN Member.  Just as long as They’re dressed like Clowns at ALL times while Representing the Voters of their State.  (Which is really all the time… even when they’re asleep.)

Seems Fair.

Also truthful…

As Well as worth the price of a conservative wage increase.  I say that because the only thing we have been paying them to do is destroy Capitalism and Individual Freedom.  I just want something worthwhile in return this time.

I mean, it’s not like it’s Unprecedented.  The Brits do it to their Judges.  If you’ve never been to the Old Bailey it’s a must see.

Bloody Brilliant if you ask me!

Except I would mandate Face Paint…


“Ask” versus “Force”…

A Tax Day Special…

One of my favorite lines from Barack Obama is; “Is it Unreasonable to Ask the Rich to pay a little more?”

I like this line because I don’t disagree with the logical answer… “No.  It’s not unreasonable to ask.”  In fact, It’s perfectly reasonable to “Ask” anyone for anything.

But that is not what he is really saying… and it’s certainly not what his base hears.

What the President is saying here is; “Is it Unreasonable to Force the Rich to pay more?”

Yes, that is unreasonable.

“Asking” someone for something leaves them the ability to say “No”…  And Socialists simply cannot have that as an option.  Not to mention that money is nothing more than a representation of an individuals property.  We should each be incensed when the government takes our, or any individuals, property through force.  (By the way, the only reasonable system of income taxation is a “flat” one… but that’s for another day.)

The takeaway here is the Socialists must play word games in order to sell their ideas.

While this is a clear admission of the weakness inherent in those Socialist ideas, it will never be clear to the public unless the opposition points it out… regularly… endlessly.

The public Hates what the Socialists stand for when it is communicated clearly and concisely.  But our leaders do not attack such ideas in such a fashion.  I believe it’s because they too subscribe to such ideas and to attack them would only prevent them from practicing their own version of Socialism when they gain a position of power.

When the Democrats say there is a war inside the Republican party they are correct.  We should simply admit it, embrace it, and move on.  There is a war between establishment conservatives and fiscal conservatives (AKA Libertarian).  I fall in line with the fiscal conservatives.  I believe my government should spend LESS than it brings in every single minute of every single day.  At the same time, I expect my government to do more with less money just as you and I must do every minute of every day.  I also expect my government to strictly adhere to the United States Constitution as it is written and amended… with the only acceptable changes being made through the amendment process.  Seems simple enough.

The establishment argument is… “That’s just not how Washington works.”  My response is always… “Well, it would be if we all insisted on it”.  But we are not insisting on it.  And the majority of Republicans that now runs things are the problem… not the solution.  We must stop sending these establishment Republicans through the Primaries… that process is the only process in which we can defeat them.  Folks… It cannot be stressed enough, Primaries are incredibly important.  And right now is the time that candidates for 2014 are being chosen for those primaries… so start paying attention!

You must realize up front, It will take all of us decades to correct our course.

It will take all of us years of pointing out what seems so simple, such as our leaders using words to hide their intent like “Ask” vs. “Force”.

But if we wish to save the United States as it was founded and the Freedom of Choice with Unlimited Opportunity the protection of the Individual offers the world then we have no other option.  We must fight the battle every day… especially with those we think are on our side.

Our argument is a winner, we don’t need to play word games… we just need to elect those who actually believe it, not just say it when the camera is on.

It’s time to stop “asking” our leadership to represent our values… it’s time to “force” them to.  They cannot be allowed the option of saying “No”.


Why The States Matter: By-Passing The Constitution On Electing A President

Mike:

“And now, have the electors go with the national popular vote, even if the people within the state vote for someone else? Why bother with states, which of course is the next step.”

I’m not a conspiracy theory kind of guy. My experience has shown me that they will do it right in front of you. And they are…

This time, the sky really is close to falling

For some time, there have been rumors and tidbits about the attempt by George Soros to find a way around the Electoral College.  In NewsMax today, Dick Morris outlines how Soros intends to accomplish this:

The plan involves an Interstate Compact where states would commit to select electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner regardless of how their own state voted. When enough states pass this law — sufficient to cast the Electoral College’s majority 270 votes –  it will take effect.

The Electoral College will become a vestigial anachronism.

So far, nine states and the District of Columbia — casting 136 electoral votes — have joined moving half way to the 270 needed to put the compact into effect. The ratifying states are: Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Hawaii, Washington, Massachusetts, DC, Vermont, California, and Rhode Island.

Crappy People

Let’s have an open, honest, discussion about Crappy People.

I’m not talking about kinda crappy. We all have moments that we look back and think, wow was I crappy just then.  So slipping in and out of crappiness once in a while is OK.  I want to talk about the hard-core crappy.  These are the best of the best at crappiness… the 1% that the occupy types should be protesting.  These include but are not limited to Racists, Homophobes, Thieves, People who park their cart right in the middle of the aisle at Costco… the REAL crappy ones.

The reality associated with Crappy People is that they are being born right now as I tap this out.  Crappy will never go away.  They have always been with us and always will… regardless of some law we pass or how much we teach our kids to “love” one another, in place of math and science, in our public schools.  But let me ask a question…

Who do these craptastic asshats really hurt?

My experience is they typically remove themselves from the rest of us except during the holidays when they celebrate the ritual of walking very slowly, arm-in-arm, four across at the mall.  (They also scream when they see their compatriots and immediately stop to exchange… pleasantries? recipes? STD’s? while they are making sure to block as much of the walk-way as possible.)  If we are on our game we can usually spot these folks (look for the universe revolving around them) and avoid them.

It’s the sneaky ones like the racists, or nationalists and elitists that catch us by surprise.  This has been such a problem for us to get our minds around we have even created laws to “prevent” some of these people from bothering us.  (We haven’t got around to the Elitists yet but I’m working on it just out of “fairness”.) I’ve never understood how you can make a law that changes the way people think, but I’m not the sharpest bowling ball in the deck.  The question remains as to how much damage can these clowns do?

Let’s say, that a really Crappy Race Hater refuses to hire a…  Insert race, religion, sex etc. of your choice.  My choice is, Canadian…  (they’re the worst don’t ya know?).  Our Crappy Race Hater doesn’t speak Canadian and hates all things not quite French and not quite English.  So… this poor chap from Canada is an extremely talented engineer, brilliant even, but doesn’t get the job.  Our race hater instead hires, say, someone like me.  I happened to be sober the day of the interview and I’m not Canadian.  (You can tell by the way I look.) I also couldn’t engineer my way out of a paper bag, but he never asked me.  What more could you want, right?  So who has our CRH hurt?  Himself.

My point is that the genuinely Crappy People out there make their own lives terribly difficult without any effort on our part.  These people think the entire world sucks and is out to get them… and they are right but not for the reasons they think.  The truth is the entire world is awesome and we are all out to avoid them.  So.. If you suck you will lose out on the best opportunities and ultimately be avoided by those who don’t suck.  You’ll be resigned to speeding up when I turn on my turn signal because that’s all the power you have left.  You’ll use the word “fair” a lot and talk about how everything is rigged by the “rich” which really means everyone who has something you want.

I advocate giving these idiots a platform for their ideas and musings.  Once they are actually heard, and see the response, they almost always pick up and move to remote areas of Idaho.  Perfect.  I rarely drive, shop or look for work in Idaho.

Number Monkey’s Part Duex

Following up with the Hairy Math used to generate an Administration Pleasing Unemployment Number… or at least the best they can fabricate from their backside… comes the Census Bureau.

A total revision of the questions asked households will render comparison to past Census Numbers impossible.

From the New York Times:

“An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.”

“We are expecting much lower numbers (Of Uninsured! – Mike) just because of the questions and how they are asked,” said Brett J. O’Hara, chief of the health statistics branch at the Census Bureau.”

I promise you that is not how it will be reported…

It will be reported that Obama Care is a Huge Success and we’re all better after we destroyed the finest Health Care System on the Planet and Replaced it with Socialized Medicine.  So Pat your Collective selves on the back… Comrade.

Should someone be asking “Why does any revision need to be conducted in the First Place?  If there is to be ANY revision of the Census shouldn’t it be to stop asking intrusive questions the Government has no business asking?  Might the revisionists focus their attention on correcting this instrument of measurement to perform exactly and only what the Founding Fathers intended it to?”

Nah.

At what point does the entire population recognize that the game is rigged and if it’s not there is some Socialist, somewhere, working on making it that way?

And if we Do Figure this out… do We, at that point, demand truth?  Some point?  Any point?  Do I even have a point?

I know… that would require paying attention which requires makinganeffort.  So, no.

But, just in case you didn’t think the Bureaucrats at the Census didn’t have a sense of humor!

“Another Census Bureau paper said “it is coincidental and unfortunate timing” that the survey was overhauled just before major provisions of the health care law took effect. “Ideally,” it said, “the redesign would have had at least a few years to gather base line and trend data.””

Well, Of Course.

There should be a laugh track played behind that paragraph.  At least then I wouldn’t feel like be intelligence is being assaulted.

Sorry to bother you with this… we can all go back to our beer now.

Wait!

A related post I just read from The Last Refuge:

“Five years ago many of us were talking about why the White House would take Census Polling responsibility away from the Dept. of Commerce.  At the time we did not know specifically why they were doing it – but we sensed it was nefarious.    We predicted it was a typical Chicago Politics strategy to mold comparative data that directly would show consequences to long-term policy.  We were right.”

I had forgotten about that…  I could blame it on the beer, but that would be ridiculous.


The Far Right and the Far Left

According to Alan Dershowitz, both the Far Right and the Far Left Hate Jews

This is True…

if your entire Political Spectrum is Socialist in Nature.

Because Far Right Socialists AND Far Left Socialists do, in fact, Hate Jews.

Socialists of Every Flavor from NAZI’s to Marxists have long Hated Jews. and many other groups they considered subhuman.

To tell you the truth, Socialists are the most Racist, Anti-Semitic, Elitist Homophobes that walk the Earth.

And yet so much of America still supports them… I guess that’s what makes those American’s “Useful”.
