The Left's ‘class warfare,’ ’war-on-women,’ and ‘race cards’ work because they are believed by the stupid and the ignorant. It is time for Conservatives to inform this segment of public that they are stupid and ignorant. I'm sorry if that steps on your toes, but it's time to tell the truth. The most gullible among us have been programmed for failure. They obey without question. Someone has to tell you the truth. It's time to recognize the Matrix. You have been had.
A Gallup survey released this week is sure to spark some partisan debate. 

thought that this was good:

I am thankful...for the husband who complains when his dinner
is not on time because he is home with me, not with someone else.

For the teenager who is complaining about doing dishes
because that means she is at home & not on the streets.

For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party, because it means
that I have been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it
means I have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work, because
it means I am out in the sunshine.

For a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning,
and gutters that need fixing, because it means I have a home.

For all the complaining I hear about the government,
because it means that we have freedom of speech.

For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot,
because it means I am capable of walking and that I have
been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill, because it means I am warm.

For the lady behind me in church that sings off key,
because it means that I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it
means I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day,
because it means I have been capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours,
because it means that I am alive.

And finally.......for too much e-mail, because it means
I have friends who are thinking of me.

Call the bluff.... NO DEAL THEN.... walk away and let em crash. They are the ones being obstinate. You don't reward a tantrum ever...
White House: No deal unless tax rates on top earners go up - The Hill's On The Money
This should not be news to anyone who was not in a coma during campaign season, spokesman Jay Carney said. White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday there will be no deficit deal unless Republicans agree to raise tax
Not that there's anything going on in Washington... in Poker, we call this a TELL. I hope the boys and girls in Congress who are allegedly Conservative have played a few times... Somehow I doubt it.

Finally some Kahunas --- Now we might get somewhere

Want Socialism ?

"We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and pro
perty, instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions."
--Adolf Hitler - Speech of May 1, 1927

Sounds familar, doesn't it ??

I hear all the time , from Socialists that Hitler’s Nazi Party , National Socialist German Workers Party ( Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei ) ( NSDAP) was fascist and not Socialist, ignoring the obvious similarities between the two systems. Below I listed a few quotes you may find interesting.
I just can’t figure out, what part of Socialist they don’t understand !

"If we turn to the differences separating Communist, Fascist, and National Socialist regimes, we find that they can be accounted for by contrasting social, economic, and cultural condition in which the three had to operate. In other words, they resulted from tactical adaptation of the same philosophy of government to local circumstances, not from different philosophies."
-Richard Pipes

The NSDAP was very much into class warfare. Of course, the socialist part of national socialism has always been understandably embarrassing to the left, but it must be acknowledged or fascism will again flourish in the intellectual community. In fact, as Chomsky and deMan demonstrate, it already has become quite chic on elite campuses.
"The Nazi's alone supported repeated communist efforts to raise sharply the level of tax exempt wages for low income groups, reduce the tax rates for those groups, and impose heavier taxation on the wealthy. The Nazis laid before the legislature several bills calling for the confiscation of 'the fortunes of the princes of the banks and the stock market"
-Henry Ashby Turner

(Doesn’t that sound like what is going on NOW, in America?)

Stalin agreed with Hitler:
"According to his (Stalin) daughter's recollection, he never stopped regretting that the condominium scenario did not come to pass. '
".. together with the German's we would have been invincible"',
he went on repeating already after the war was over.

National Socialism - Communism - Socialism
Hitler- Stalin - Mao
Let’s compare :

What the FISCAL CLIFF really is...

“Fiscal cliff” is the popular term used to describe the situation that the U.S. government will face at the end of 2012, when the terms of the Budget Control Act of 2011 go into effect.

The things that are slated to happen are a combination of tax increases and cuts to government spending that when considered together, have the potential to cause a lot of problems for businesses in the US and perhaps - the world.

Among the laws set to change at midnight on December 31, 2012, are:

1) The end of last year’s temporary payroll tax cuts (resulting in a 2% tax increase for workers)
2) The end of certain tax breaks for businesses
3) Shifts in the alternative minimum tax that would take a larger bite out of paychecks
4) The end of the tax cuts that began in 2001-2003 (also known as  the Bush tax-cuts)
5) The beginning of taxes related to President Obama’s health care law.

At the same time, the spending cuts agreed upon as part of the debt ceiling deal of 2011 will begin to go into effect. Approximately 1,000 government programs - including the defense budget and Medicare are in line for deep, automatic cuts.

In dealing with the 'fiscal cliff', U.S. lawmakers have a choice among three options, none of which is very attractive:
  • They can do nothing and let the scheduled changes go into effect. The plus side of this is that the budget deficit would be cut in half. The downside is that we would see the elimination of millions of jobs, and a removal of capital from the economy, which would weigh heavily on growth and drive the economy deeper into a recession.
  • They can cancel some or all of the scheduled tax increases and spending cuts. The upside of this is that we would retain most of the jobs that would be lost if the changes were allowed to go into effect. The downside is that we would add to the deficit and increase the odds that we could face a crisis similar to that which is occurring in Europe.
  • They could take a middle course, opting for an approach to address the budget issues to a limited extent, but that would have a more modest impact on growth.
Can a Compromise be Reached?
Republicans want to cut spending and avoid raising taxes. They see a need to cut spending on programs that many people have relied on for years, which provide financial assistance. They're concerned that tax increases will encourage businesses to look to places like China where corporate taxes are lower. Republicans believe that increasing taxes will discourage new business start-ups and force companies to layoff or terminate employees, hurting a fragile economy.

Democrats are looking for a combination of spending cuts and tax increases. Democrats believe that corporations and wealthy individuals have a responsibility to pay a larger share of the bill for keeping the goverment running and they believe that spending cuts to programs that provide financial assistance are not feasible.

Although both parties want to avoid the fiscal cliff, compromise is difficult to achieve.

Congress has had three years to deal with the problem and work out a compromise, but has failed in every attempt, due to a reluctance by both sides to compromise on strongly held ideologies. The election did nothing to change the make-up of power in Washington. All the same players are still in the game and they're reading from the same playbook.

Personally, I doubt that a compromise will be reached before the end of the year. The two sides are too far apart in their views. In early discussions, it seems neither side is willing to give in on their demands. I expect that we'll see a stalemate and of course - finger-pointing will ensue when they're asked why nothing was accomplished. As a side note - the next Congress won't be sworn in until January 3.

The most likely result is another set of stop-gap measures that would delay a permanent policy change until 2013 or later.

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that if Congress takes the middle ground – extending the Bush-era tax cuts but cancelling the automatic spending cuts – the result, in the short term, would be modest growth but no major economic hit.

Possible Effects of the Fiscal Cliff
If the current laws slated to go into effect are not changed, the impact on the economy could be dramatic. While the combination of higher taxes and spending cuts would reduce the deficit by an estimated $560 billion, the CBO estimates that the policies would cut gross domestic product (GDP) by four percentage points in 2013, sending the economy into a recession (i.e., negative growth).

At the same time, it predicts unemployment would rise by almost a full percentage point, with a loss of about two million jobs.

A Wall St. Journal article from May 16, 2012 estimates the following impact in dollar terms: “In all, according to an analysis by J.P. Morgan economist Michael Feroli:

  1) $280 billion would be pulled out of the economy by the sunsetting of the Bush tax cuts
  2) $125 million from the expiration of the Obama payroll-tax holiday
  3) $40 million from the expiration of emergency unemployment benefits
  4) $98 billion from Budget Control Act spending cuts.

In all, the tax increases and spending cuts make up about 3.5% of GDP, with the Bush tax cuts making up about half of that. Amid an already-fragile recovery and high unemployment, the economy is not in a position to avoid this type of shock.

Having said all this, it's important to keep in mind that while the term “cliff” indicates an immediate disaster at the beginning of 2013, the impact of the changes - while destructive over a full year - will be gradual at first. Furthermore - Congress can act to change laws retroactively after the deadline. As a result, the fiscal cliff may not immediately impact the economy, even if a deal is struck well into 2013.

Never Let a Tragedy Go To Waste: Politicizing Hurricane Sandy for ‘Climate Change’ Agenda - Right Impulse

I make no reservation in stating that I am a global warming skeptic, nor do I make any reservation in stating a belief in absolutism; as opposed to the position of relativism. The argument is not based on my pedigree as a scholar; after all, my tax dollars, as well as many other non-scholar skeptics tax dollars, are being used to fight a superficial war against what I believe is a very skeptical foe; instead, the argument is whether or not climate change is a federally mandated responsibility.
Beth Shapiro, Associate Professor of Biology at Penn State University, spoke of the natural cycles of the earth cooling and warming during the interglacial periods “in which, the climate is similar to what we have today.[10]” Professor Shapiro, along with other experts in the biology field, recognizes natural patterns of shifting in the earth’s climate over millenniums; however, many are still determined to give a causation of the matter to man’s inventions or initiatives. It is possible, and likely, that Hurricane Sandy; despite what has been alleged by agenda based groups and politicians who advocate for a “green agenda,” was not the result of man-causation, but rather, a natural disaster that naturally occurred.

Brutal Basics of Time Management

Learn the 3 Most Important Rules of Time Management

Effective time management is apparently elusive. Witness the massive industry dedicated to helping us navigate the clock more successfully. We have software programs, day planners, apps, calendars, training programs – you name it. I find that most of these resources are only modestly useful. My theory is that the thinkers behind these products have over-thought the problem. They have made their solutions overly complex. If a given time management system takes hours to learn is it really saving you time? | Brutal Basics of Time Management

How the Judgment Seat of Christ Connects to Conservative Values

Revelation 20:11-15 says:
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
2 Corinthians 5:10-11 says:
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others.
These remarkable portions of Scripture speak of a certain point in the future when all human beings—both Christians and non-Christians—will face an upcoming judgment which will be based on our lives and works as individuals. There is nothing spoken in either passage related to an individual being judged as organically connected to a family, community, or nation. This is not to say that nations and corporate entities will not be judged (for example, Sodom and Gomorrah); Scripture does speak of sheep and goat nations (Matthew 25) and cities being judged (Matthew 11:20-24). But while these passages point to the fact that in the judgment we will likely be identified with a certain national and corporal heritage, it doesn’t take away from the fact that individuals who serve God will not be penalized for the sins of their nation (for example, 2 Peter 2:7 shows that Lot was not condemned with the other inhabitants of Sodom) or for the sins of their families (Ezekiel 3:19-20).
Ezekiel 3:4 makes it very clear: it is the soul who sins who shall die! And Paul says that “God commands all people everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30).
Where am I going with all of this? I have attempted to establish that we will be judged by God as individuals. This flies in the face of the typical liberal mantra in which individuals are not responsible for their actions because of their cultural and economic environment (racism, class warfare, systemic poverty), psychological upbringing (the way our parents raised us), and/or because of genetic determinism (i.e., we are genetically predisposed to behave in a certain way from birth; thus it is not a choice how we act out our lives as individuals).
The result of this liberal ideology is for the state to overregulate every aspect of individual human life to bring about a utopia, resulting in the emphasizing of the secular state over religion, and the corporate state over individual rights. This, in turn, deemphasizes individual human rights, liberty, and private property rights, and favors redistribution of wealth, egalitarianism, and a large central government.
Ben Shapiro aptly states it this way:
“The same position that rejects the sanctity of unborn life tends to reject the sanctity of private property; both are based on the John Locke-ian premise that man is special in the universe, and that the product of his labor is an extension of his special place in the universe. Ignore man's Godly origins and his property becomes a dispensable commodity rather than a fulfillment of a divine mission.
“More than that, the religious society rests on two fundamental principles: personal responsibility and belief in responsibility to future generations. Secularism rejects both principles. Personal responsibility becomes societal responsibility in the secular view; our genetics and our environment, both of which are out of our control, shape us all. How, then, can we are held responsible for our actions?” (The Death of American Religion)

Learning from the Election

 Victor David Hansen is one of my favorite analysts.  I suggest you consider what he says about the past election.  It's sobering and tells us what the future holds.  Rent the profane movie IDIOCRACY.  It will show you where we are headed.

Works and Days » Learning from the Election

I know several people who voted for Obama.

 They are neither stupid or partisan. They are average people just trying to get by and working their tails off in the process. After a long hard days work, they relax in front of the TV. They may watch a sitcom which does a sympathetic story about a gay couple or a story slandering the Catholic Church. Then they might watch some news and see basically the same stories, now presented as “fact”. Then they go to bed. They simply do not have the time or energy to investigate issues for themselves, and so this becomes their reality, one in which the choice is between a humble grass roots liberal or a rich capitalist conservative.

Psalm 666

The State is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
It makes me lie down in federally owned pastures.
It leads me beside quiet waters in banned fishing areas.
It restores my soul through its control.
It guides me in the path of dependency for its namesake.
Even though our nation plunges into the valley of the shadow of debt,
I will fear no evil,
For Barack will be with me.
The Affordable Care Act and food stamps,
They comfort me.
You prepare a table of Michelle Obama approved foods before me in the presence of my Conservative and Libertarian enemies.
You anoint my head with hemp oil;
My government regulated 16-ounce cup overflows.
Surely mediocrity and an entitlement mentality will follow me
All the days of my life,
And I will dwell in a low-rent HUD home forever and ever.

Peter Suderman Deals with the WAL MART issue using reason and economics

Over thanksgiving several protesters (about 50) were protesting wages at WalMart.  I am for people earning money.  But Peter Suderman makes some economic points that those who are not well schooled in economic things may not be able to understand.  I will also disclaim this, I am not an apologist for WalMart... but economics are economics.  

 From Mr Suderman:

        1. Walmart’s customer base is heavily concentrated in the bottom income quintile, which spends heavily on food.
        2.The bottom income quintile spends about 25 percent of income on food compared to just 3.5 percent for the top quintile.
        3.So the benefits of Walmart’s substantially lower prices to the lowest earning cohort are huge, especially on food.
        4. Obama adviser Jason Furman has estimated the welfare boost of Walmart’s low food prices alone is about $50b a year.
        5.Walmart’s wages are about average for retail. Not amazing. But not the worst either.
        6. Paying Walmart’s workers more would mean the money has to come from somewhere. But where?
        7. Erase the Walmart CEO's entire salary, and you can raise average hourly wages by just a penny or so.
        8. Erase the entire Walton family fortune and you get an average $1/hour boost to Walmart workers.
        9. Raise prices to pay for increased wages and you cut into the store’s huge low-price benefits for the poor. It’s regressive.
        10. But what about Costco? They pay more, right? Yes, but it’s a different, smaller market.
        11. Walmart’s average customer earns roughly $35k. Costco’s average customer earns about $75k.
        12. Costco only has about half as many employees as Walmart. What would happen if Walmart adopted a Costco model and shrank to Costco size?
        13. Not at all clear that the remaining half of Walmart workers would be better off. Many would almost certainly be worse off. Unemployed.
        14. Obama econ adviser Jason Furman did a lot of the work on Walmart's progressive benefits. His case: 

        15. Finally, as someone who's actually been a regular, small-town Walmart shopper, I'd like to argue for its community benefits.
        16. Yes, some small stores close when Walmart opens. But in small towns, Walmart can become real community hubs - more so, because of size.
        17. As for Walmart workers getting health benefits thru Medicaid, that's due in part to a policy liberals argued for:

Everything the Government tries to do fails.... let Wal Mart try it... the seem to do things right

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke. b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke. c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke. d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more. e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke. f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke. g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure. You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars. AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

Are the Feds Preparing for Civil War?

Is the government preparing to put down widespread civil strife or uprising? After four years of economic woe, and an all-time low approval rating for congress, many Americans are asking this question. With a government that’s seemingly out of control, conspiracy theories are popping up about what’s “really” going on – and there’s more truth to these theories than you might think. Get the facts before it’s too late and see what you should be concerned about.
