Have you Forgotten…

…about Benghazi, Fast & Furious and North Korea having a Long Range Ballistic Missile yet?  How about the impending doom of fiscal insolvency due to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare spending?

None of this rings a bell?

Good.

As long as you have forgotten then the current Administration doesn’t have to explain themselves to you.

Move on (.org)… nothing to see here.

Except banning guns… and getting rid of any modicum of fiscal responsibility like the debt limit, or spending cuts… and hate speech is on deck since we seem to be in the mood to ban stuff.

Seriously, stop paying attention to that which is reality based and surrounded by unpleasant facts. Stay focused on hypotheticals and only those issues whose proposed solutions would continue to erode your individual rights.  Banning Guns, Banning Hate Speech, and increased levels of Domestic Surveillance… that should take care of the 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendments.  We may want to park some soldiers in your house for a few days without your permission sometime in the near future just to fill in the gap.  We’re working on that one… we’ll get back to you.

So remained focused on gun violence… but not in Chicago.  And ignore the crime wave associated with mental illness and gangs… because it is actually the wheel… sorry, the gun’s fault.

It’s imperative we stay on the path of fiscal insolvency driven by a unanswerable, nebulous, government… with the best of intentions.

Keep your heads in the game here folks… spend, spend, spend… punish those who create jobs… and keep those wars going.  Have you tried the “Rocky Mountain High”?  You should… need a match?

This has been a public service announcement from George Soros and the DNC, those people who care more about you than you do… and are here to help.

Just Say No…

…To Socialism.

If you’ve been with me for longer than 10 minutes, then you already realize I’m what you would call an Anti-Socialist.

While I have vast and varied views, first and foremost I stand in opposition to all forms of Socialist thought. You can call it whatever you want; Socialism, Liberalism, Leftist, Progressive, Fascist, Communist, Democrat, No Labels, Crony Capitalist, RINO, John McCain… or whatever new names they come up with to keep you confused.

Why do I oppose Socialism?  Why do I oppose a political theory that promotes Elitists exercising force over all those they deem inferior?  Why do I oppose an Ideology that has resulted in the greatest destruction to the common good, and ultimately the loss of life, in the history of the world?

I am a Free-Market Capitalist.

But what apparently sets me apart is I know what that means, which is more than I can said for the majority of our elected officials… and certainly more than our electorate.

(If you would like to join me in actually KNOWING what a Free-Market Capitalist is instead of allowing Leftists to tell you what they want you to think it is… here’s a good start:  Wealth of Nations, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, The Road to Serfdom, Freedom to Choose, The Romantic Manifesto, The Constitution of Liberty, The Age of Reason, The Law, Conflict of Visions… and the list can go on.  Come join us… it is rare air to breathe indeed.)

I will share with you, the people being demonized by the press are the people you must listen to carefully. (Actually listen to them… not whatever sound bite John Stewart or Bill Mahr decide to let you hear, followed by a studio audience of the above mentioned know nothings yucking it up and a laugh track from the fifties.)

The folks you will be told are Mean, Evil, Stupid and In the Way of your Happiness are the very individuals who, most likely, have the best interest of our amazing country at heart. And, they are the few deserving an honest, unedited, un-editorialized hearing of why they stand in opposition of more Socialism.

But let me get you started:

Socialism gets you Detroit.

Socialism gets you Mexico.

Socialism gets you Domestic Spying.

Socialism gets you incredibly horrible public schools.

Socialism gets you Unions who make promises to their members they know they can’t honor.

Socialism put’s your medical records out there for all to see.

Socialism gets you expensive, crappy health care.

Socialism gets you high taxes.

Socialism gets you high unemployment.

Socialism gets you Crony business deals.

Socialism gets a quadrupling of the money supply devaluing everything you’ve worked so hard to save.

Socialism spends your money with no consideration of reason or result, because it believes it owns the money… not you.

Socialism gets you National Debt so large you cannot possibly conceive it.  You literally can’t count that high… before you die of old age.

Socialism gets you racial hatred because without it, it dies.

Socialism gets you a bigger and bigger gap between the rich and poor, because it relies on that too.

Socialism puts self-anointed Elitist A-holes in power and keeps them there… forever.

Socialism is Force.

So the very least MY representatives can do IS NOT GET ALONG WITH SOCIALISTS.  AT ALL… EVER.

The very least MY representatives can do is say NO in the face of bigger government and more spending… or should I SAY WASTING MY MONEY.

The VERY LEAST my representatives can do IS STAND IN OPPOSITION to everything… every single thing… the Socialists want to do.

And, if they DO NOTHING ELSE… I will consider them to be doing a great job.

If they really want to impress me, then start taking apart 100 years of Socialist schemes which have not only stood in the way of this country being greater than it is, but has set it back on every level.  Doubt me?  Do you think the founding fathers would have asked the public to tolerate Domestic Spying after fighting a War in order to establish a new type of Government designed to protect the Individual, Their Freedom, Liberty and Property?  (There were plenty of “Terrorists” back then too.)

So I expect that 20% of the Republican Party who are about to be positioned as the worst people in the world… will do the right thing.

I expect them to be the Party of No!

NO!  NO!  NO!

It is the least they can do.  When I say “the least”, I mean the LEAST.

Mr. Trump, Take Blue Back! (Thank you.)

(This was a plea I made on July 22nd of 2015.  And after last night’s debate, I have to extend a Thank You to Mr. Trump.  It’s about time someone wrested Blue back from the Socialists and put them back in their Historic Color… of Oppression, Death and Destruction, Blood Red.)

You’re Just the Man to do It…

Back in 2000 during a ridiculous, and I still believe contrived, Media Argument over how to depict States on Electoral maps during Elections, The Leftists decided to seize the opportunity to sow yet more confusion where there was previously none to be found.

The Liberal Media all came together and ‘voted’ that instead of what had been colors traditionally, and more important historically, associated with the two primary U.S. political parties, Red for Democrats and Blue for Republicans, the colors should be reversed.

Believe it or not, up to that point there was no confusion.

RED was the color of The Democrat Party

and

BLUE was the color of The Republican Party

But the Liberal Media knew this was their chance to help their Party crawl out from underneath the accurate label, and color, of Socialism.

So they ‘voted’ to make Republicans RED and Democrats BLUE.

That’s all it took. The Media revised what History had already determined to be true.

Well, I for one am tired of this glaring revisionism to be accepted by anyone… let alone those of us who know what “RED” means.

RED remains the color of Socialism. 

It is the color of Oppression, Destruction and Death Worldwide. 

It is the color of Lying Populism intended to placate the Masses while cementing the Power of the Few over the Many.

It is the color of creating the Government Addicted.

It is the color of Slavery.

It is the color of Racial and Ethnic Division fomented for Political Gain.

It is the color of Blood shed in the name of Tyranny.

It is the color of Social Democracy and the Democrat Party.

 

Mr. Trump,

During your run for the Presidency, please do me this one favor if you do nothing else, Take Blue Back.

And while you’re at it, remind the American People, and the myriad fools in the Republican Leadership, why Democrats are RED.

Thank You in Advance,

Mike at makeaneffort


Reagan’s 11th Commandment…

Is it time to repeal the 11th Commandment in the face of the damage it has allowed to happen to this country?

Without question… yes.

Today’s lead story is John Boehner endorsing Paul Ryan for President.

For those of you just tuning in, no, Paul Ryan is not running for President. And yes, John Boehner is part of the reason why Trump is doing so well in this election cycle. Sure, sure… Maybe John needs to set the Johnny Walker down for a day or two and think a bit more about what he’s saying. And possibly it’s the guilt of being one of the building blocks of betrayal upon which Trump is constructing his tacky Maison-Blanc. But I’m more willing to lean towards Boehner’s complete and total incomprehension of what he and his Fellow Travelers have done to this country and it’s Constitution.  Additionally, Boehner’s endorsement of Paul Ryan should effectively end Paul Ryan’s career in politics.  Should…  Should… end his career.

I offer that Reagan’s 11th Commandment has much to do with the Liberal, dare I say soft Leftist, Rockefeller Republicans regaining control over the party once Reagan vacated office.  They effectively hid behind the ‘don’t say anything bad about us’ rule while espousing rhetoric the people wanted to hear and utilizing that misdirected support to expand their power and influence.

When Ted Cruz stepped out onto the Senate floor and correctly accused Mitch McConnell of lying to him the Establishment Republicans went into complete meltdown.  Violating the very rule that has protected them all these years could not be tolerated in any way… certainly not by an individual who believed in the U.S. Constitution above the back room personal promises and collection of power the Establishment had wrapped itself in.

For the American People… The curtain was pulled back if only for a moment.

The Boehners of the world, add Paul Ryan to that group, know their power and control rests on The Curtain Never Being Pulled Back.  It simply cannot happen.  Ever.

That is why they fear Trump… and Cruz.

This is also why they have Scotch induced trashy novel fantasies such as a spiky-black-spray-painted-hair-not-flowing-in-the-wind Paul Ryan riding bareback and bare-chested into the GOP Convention Hall to save the Day from the Evil Constitutional Conservatives.

The RINO’s know full well Both Cruz and Trump will take their issues to an American Electorate who is beginning to pay attention.  They have an audience who is starting to listen… voters who pay attention scare politicians who say whatever they want and do whatever they choose.

The Establishment Fear is palpable.

The very First lesson you learn as a young person taking Life Saving lessons is a Drowning Man will take you down with Him.

As I tap this out, we are seeing that behavior from the Establishment.  They are flailing in desperation to preserve their power.

My only concern is we do not commit the same mistake Ronald Reagan made.  We must NOT allow ourselves to set up rules which nourish the very kind of behavior the Establishment built this Empire on.  The cloak of protection must be burned on the pile of everything else this fever has touched.

It’s time to get rid of the 11th Commandment.

Trump doesn’t know any of them… and Cruz knows they stop at 10.

Either way, we win.

 


The Enemy Within

For the handful of you that haven’t already realized the Republican Party has been compromised by the Liberal Left and their Fascist Ideology…

As a Parting Gift, John Boehner has just handed the Progressives unlimited spending.

This is on the heels of a mock election for the Speaker of the House which Boehner immediately canceled when it became clear the Leftist Establishment was not going to get the outcome they wanted.

Now the Banana Republicans have achieved their goal by anointing Paul Ryan as the Next Speaker for the House of Representatives.

If it isn’t clear by now…

You’ve been used.  You’re still being used.

From the faux opposition to Obama Care, a poorly disguised pathway to Single Payer Socialized Medicine, which allows for total control over everything you do. and will do, to takeover of the banks by the very Leftists who caused them to fail in the first place… from where, and when, you’ll be allowed to travel, to what kind of wage you’ll be allowed to earn… from what you eat and read, to what activities you’ll be permitted to participate in.  All of these things will be decided for you by Socialists with ‘the best of intentions’. In fact, it’s already started in school lunch programs and mandatory insurance policies.

The Democrats and their RINO counterparts will tell you “It’s about your happiness, health and well-being after all.”  No allowing of your Individual Freedom.  Certainly no allowing your right to choose.

The fact all the above serves to solidify the permanent power of those Leftists on both sides of the aisle, and their progeny, is to be ignored by you.

When the message is,

‘Do not understand ‘why’ America is exceptional.  Do not demand Political Ideology and Governing Theory be clearly espoused, and more importantly demonstrated, by ‘your guy’.  Do not Require your Government return to the Constitution’s Original Intent and Expressed Limitations.’

When you’re being told,

‘It’s too Late.  Nothing Can be done about it.  Government will always be corrupt so you might as well get yours.’

It has begun.

What should you be feeling?

Bitter… Betrayed… Angry… Scared… Frustrated… Motivated…

Make no mistake, there is a war going on right in front of you.

The Enemy is Within.

It’s time to pick a side within the Republican Party.  It’s time to Defeat the Cancer that has led this country into Fiscal Insolvency and Democratic Socialism.   It’s time to Think… forcefully.

You will have no friends.


“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”.

If ISIS comes across our Border with Mexico…

It will be no one’s fault but the Democrat Party.

Period.

Followed only by those Leftist Republicans whose deliberate inaction on the issue of securing the borders FIRST prior to any discussion of reform of immigration policy.

If, God forbid, those Terrorist A-Holes succeed in killing American’s here in the U.S. the blood will be on the hands of those elected officials who have placed politics above security, economic and otherwise, for over a decade now.

There is No Excuse for the situation we are in… and our open, unprotected borders have been by design. Whether it was to set the stage for the continued life of the Leftist Democrat Party of the Fascist Left of the Republican party catering to big business…

They ALL will be to blame.

We have been talking about securing the borders since the beginning of the Bush Administration and we have done LESS THAN NOTHING. If anything, we have created a path of death and despair with the promise of free stuff and taking care of those who cannot take care of themselves from outside our country. It is as Sad as it is Sick that anyone supports such a Scheme foisted upon innocence.

But then there’s the not so innocent…

What’s left to add after those who came here illegally begin killing us?

Some offer they started a long time ago.

Wake Up. Secure the Borders. If that means a fence to at least slow them down then so be it.

Once we’re finished with that we can begin the conversation regarding easier access for those who wish to work here.

Enough is Enough,


Chief Justice Roberts, The Benevolent Arsonist.

Roberts has poured gas on the fire.  Intentionally.

This Obama Care ruling with Chief Justice Roberts at the center of it seems to me to be a blessing in disguise.

Let’s look at this in the simplest terms… which is the best way for me as I’m drunk most of the time.

1. The number one tactic on the Left to find legitimacy within the constitution for their schemes is removed.  The Commerce Clause has been and to this point was yet again offered up as authority for Leftists to force. Force anything they wanted… and they were hoping for a victory on Obamacare based on the “authority” of the Commerce Clause thus opening the door to making you do anything they wanted.  This use of the Commerce Clause has been emasculated.
They lost this now and for the future.  Justice Ginsburg is not happy about this…

2. Roberts opinion put’s Obama Care in the category of a tax. Nobody has yet been “harmed” by the tax as it has not kicked in yet. (It is my opinion that Roberts and many of us knew the Left, if losing the case, was going to repackage Socialized Medicine as a tax – just like Medicare – and push it that way. This would buy them another four years of legal wrangling all the while continuing to build their health care bureaucracy in the background where nobody see’s it. Yes, kind of like Iran and their nuclear program. The Socialists and the Theocrats are very similar in most ways.)

But now that it is a tax… and declared as such by all parties… the second it kicks in and “harms” somebody, the suits will start flying. Only this new challenge will have happened much faster than the Liberals would have wanted. Remember, like any good drug dealer you don’t have a solid customer until their hooked, which takes a little time, and that’s what the Liberals have openly stated.

3. Since it is a tax… it lands squarely back into the hands of Congress and our duly elected representatives who are up for election in 120 days more or less.  Hmmm…

4.  The court has reinforced the states right to not participate.  The court has reinforced the ability for the states not to proceed with the Medicaid expansion without retribution.  The Left does not like this either…  Socialism has no room for State’s rights and the 10th Amendment.

I think Roberts knew exactly what he was doing in the name limited government contrary to popular belief. But I seem to run contrary at times.

It appears to me that he has pushed this to a fight.  He has accelerated what he knew would otherwise be a long drawn out exercise to the benefit of the Socialized Medicine crowd.  He has also opened a multi-front war on this program combined with the right amount of governing philosophy required to report on it.  Who knows, may be the American people will learn something over the next few years.  May be not.

I will always stand tall to be corrected…  we’ll see.

None of you will remember what I’ve stated here in two years anyway.

“You Already Got Your Tax Increases…”

“…And All of us Feel it.”

(I’m bringing this post back because we’re all about to submit our 2013 taxes.  Most of us will see our taxes go up.  While certain Establishment Republicans are actively trying to negate the Sequester cuts which were the only element of fiscal responsibility to have occurred in the past 10 years.  I just want you all to think about the additional money you’ll be sending to Washington while Washington tries to protect Their ability to Waste it.)

This should be the only sentence spoken for the next week by Republicans.  (It was not….)

No matter what defense is offered up by the Liberals, the above line should be repeated by every Conservative who jumps in front of a camera.

We should also demand that sequester happens.  Simple.

For those of you who are afraid of the mandatory “cuts” because they may effect Defense… I will remind you that Money is Fungible.

FUNGIBLE
Definition
fun·gi·ble
ADJECTIVE 
1. tradable under contract: describes commodities that can be traded or substituted for an equal amount of a like commodity, usually to satisfy a contract
NOUN 
fun·gi·bles   plural
1. something traded or substituted: a commodity that is fungible   (    often used in the plural   )   
[ Late 17th century. <  medieval Latin fungibilis <  Latin fungi “perform” ]
fun·gi·bil·i·ty NOUN
What this means is that money can be moved around by the agencies from other programs deemed less important by Defense Administrators.  Don’t be fooled… yes the cuts may be “across the board”, but they do not prevent those in charge from moving money around to Preserve/Save those programs and operations they believe to be integral to our security.
They will scream.  They will Cry.  They will Stomp their Feet.
They will tell you that the Sky will fall, the Terrorists will win and Global Warming will kill us all.
But you must understand… they will act as if the world is ending because their budgets WILL be cut.  (Think about a  child who has ten lollipops and you take one away… it will scream bloody murder and cry for days.  Similarly, once the Government has your money it believes it’s theirs to be wasted as they see fit.)
Don’t fall for this Artificial Emergency.
Let me ask you, Isn’t a government that pays attention to how it wastes our money what we all want?
Well this is just a start.  (Yes, I would have preferred to begin with out of control entitlements but this will have to do.  I’m no fan of waste whether it’s entitlements or defense… or anywhere else.)
So let it go…  don’t succumb to the hype… and remind everyone you see that they are paying more in taxes even though they thought their “friends” in Washington were only going to “hurt” the rich… Surprise!  Then let them know their “friends” want to make it even worse.  And remind them that all of this was Obama’s idea.  Then, remind them that “Yes We Can, Cut our Way to Prosperity!  Yes We Can!”  Just like they do at home… and are having to do right now, now that their taxes are going up thanks to the people they voted for.
For once he should be a victim of his own bad ideas… even though it’s not the worst idea, and certainly not the one I would choose for him to be a victim of.  I would probably start with a little redistribution sprinkled with Obama Care finished with a heavy dose of “Fairness” as defined by me.  Anyway…
This is one of those times when the best thing to do is nothing.
Because… “The Democrats already got their tax increases.”

Occupy Washington

It’s become Clear that just when you think it’s OK to stop Spraying for them,

They Come Back….

But this time They’re wearing Brooks Brothers and Bow Ties.

No more Dirty, Parent’s basement Dwelling, Brand New Apple Using, Porn Surfing, Starbucks Swilling, Sign Misspelling, Female Molesting, Money Stealing, Crapping on Cop Car Twenty Something’s….

Nope.

Now They’re showing up in the Halls of Congress.

They’re Leaders are well dressed Individuals like John McCain, Harry Reid, Lindsey Graham, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan.

They have forgone setting up a tent by the reflecting pond and opted for apartments in Georgetown, Arlington and Adams Morgan.

What they can’t get from the Starbucks they installed in the basement, They drink on F Street while leaving most of the Stealing, Misspelling and Molesting to their Interns.

The only Surprise is how long it took them to take over the Entire Hill.

And, that we have yet to see Video of Pelosi squatting over a Park Police Cruiser.

May be since They’re figuratively doing Exactly That to all of Us they don’t Feel the Need.

Some things are just too big to get on Film.

In the End, They are the Same Collective of “thinkers” we watched Pollute a Park in the Financial District.

Except the Damage isn’t limited to a single block.  It extends across the entire Nation.
