“Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.”
This issue isn't going away. Many people who are disgusted by it are reluctant to openly discuss it to avoid being considered intolerant. My concern is primarily focused on two areas; our youth and our military. Serious lifetime damage can result to youth impacted by this behavior but in certain military actions, distractions can result in death. Many highly trained military personnel are going to decide to leave the service as a result of the presidents actions.
I agree more than 100 %
I fully support the arrest and deportation of all
Today's new American politics are in a condition that requires immediate attention. There must be changes made to the political system of this country or devastating future events will occur. The motives behind becoming a political candidate are no longer what they should be.
Everyone knows of the constitution that was designed by the forefathers of this country, to direct future generations. The bill of rights is another document, prepared to take care of all who reside in the land it's designed to protect. These documents where not quickly drafted. Thought was given, to almost an unfathomable amount of items, that could possibly occur. They took measures to take into account the increases that could happen to the population. Unfortunately their insight couldn't have imagined the numbers that have entered this country since.
Politics now, is something of a beast that must be fed. Special interest groups and small sectors of the industrial arena, have made the politicians of today their personal wedges to sway decision in their financial favor. Getting laws passed to explicitly factor into results that will increase profits, regardless of the environmental or economical effects it may have in general. This practise has put the nation in peril.
The things that have to be changed are important to the future of America. The problem lies in the fact that the decision making process is in the hands of the beast. They are the ones that control change. There is no motivation to change something that is a profitable venture and would only be detrimental to themselves.
When the lawmakers are chosen the fleet of choices begins for Americans with a primary election, if all the candidates in this primary are backed by large corporate interests, then the election is more to decide who is going to receive the most government moneys, or the best government considerations.
A small change will not work. The people in power need to be left from the equation and this could prove impossible. They will not step aside and watch their paychecks being cut. An average patriot could never mount an acceptable campaign.
Avoiding whats coming without making changes, is impossible and left to it's own direction, new American politics are on a collision course for destruction.
Obama is a "pandering fool"
It's Romney's fault. Just getting started early.
“Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil.”
Scurrilous would be a step up for Harry Reid. If he were a Republican ... you know the drill. The word "McCarthyite" would be on everyone's lips and the thoroughly contemptible accusation -- based (ha!) on an anonymous "investor" who supposedly phoned Reid -- would be the story of the day. Reid's fetid slander, and not Romney's response, would preoccupy everyone interested in politics.For Romney to release his tax returns now would seem to reward this sort of disgraceful tactic. And yet, it may be worth doing anyway.
Romney has resisted releasing more than two years' worth of tax returns -- presumably because he knows that an army of Democratic operatives would pore over them, plucking out details and holding them between tweezers for all to see. "Look, Romney has holdings in companies doing business in (fill in the blank) the Philippines, Russia, China, South Africa, Singapore. Did you know that you could be arrested for spitting on the street in Singapore? Romney has described Russia as 'our No. 1 adversary' in the world, and yet he had stock in company X that sold widgets to St. Petersburg's water authority! What a hypocrite. What a traitor."
For a few days, there is no doubt, we'd hear nothing but repetitions about Romney's great wealth, including in-depth examinations of his various holdings, whatever they are, and a lurid emphasis on anything -- like expensive dressage horses -- that screams money. That much is a given.
But the recent dust-up over Romney's Swiss bank account illustrates the limits of this sort of strategy for Democrats. Democratic Party Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz unloaded on Romney, saying he needed to release his tax returns "So we can see why he's invested in Swiss bank accounts and accounts in the Cayman Islands. And you know, we also need to know why does -- what is the allure of investments out of the country?"
Wasserman Schultz's indignation rang hollow when the Weekly Standard discovered that through her 401(k), she had investments in foreign drug companies, Swiss banks and the state bank of India. Just as Wasserman Schultz was hoist, so will others be. Everyone is encouraged to diversify his or her portfolios.
Also, there is a limit to how long even our dutiful, Democratic-leaning, lap-dog press can persist with the Romney-is-still-rich meme. After a few days, even they will feel constrained to change topics.
Even if they don't, there is no reason to believe that voters will hold Romney's wealth against him. Americans don't envy the rich; they aspire to become rich themselves. Class envy has limited appeal. Among recent prominent American politicians, it's challenging to find a single one who is not a millionaire. Harry Reid has a net worth estimated at between $2.6 and 5 million. Nancy Pelosi recently lost $8 million, bringing her net worth down to $26.4 million. John Boehner is said to have $1.7 million.
Hillary Clinton, one of the most popular political figures in the country, is worth about $85 million. No one objected to her wealth when she ran in 2008, and no one suggests it would be a handicap in the future.
Ross Perot made history in 1992 and 1996, getting more votes than any third party candidate in history. His status as a billionaire was not resented, but instead, admired.
Al Gore could have picked up the tab when dining with the Clintons. His net worth clocks in at about $100 million. But he could have asked John Kerry to do likewise, as Kerry's fortune is put at $240 million.
Darrell Issa and Arnold Schwarzenegger are wealthy men, which hasn't hurt their careers in politics. Teddy Kennedy, Mark Warner, John Edwards, Rudy Giuliani, Herb Kohl, Rick Scott, Jay Rockefeller, Jon Corzine and George W. Bush are/were all multimillionaires. And let's not forget the man who seems to be mayor of New York for life and who is often mentioned (by the credulous) as a possible national candidate, Michael Bloomberg (estimated net worth $22 billion).
Romney's fortune puts him at the higher end of recent presidential candidates, north of Al Gore but south of John Kerry. Unlike many in Washington, Romney made money in the private sector, not by political leverage. Some voters, however, may conclude that Romney's reluctance to release his tax returns suggests that he's hiding something. To allay their suspicions, it's worth releasing the returns. Yes, Romney's rich and also charitable and clean. All are plusses in American politics
Hahahaha Harry Reid is an asshole
Max, Even certified A-holes look down on this slimy weasel. He's one of the best of the "O-blame-O" stone throwers. Harry has ZERO credibility and is missing most of his ethics. He does help provide "hype & change" and actually expects people to believe what he serves up. Just think, the democrat senators elected him to be their leader, what could they have been thinking?
The belief that no one owes me anything is one of the greatest gifts my hardworking, blue-collar father gave me when I was young. His words carried me through some difficult times growing up, sustained me through widowhood, years back, and helped to shape me into the person I am today.Once upon a time in America, and not so long ago, my dad's can-do attitude toward life was common place, until liberals and their faithful following began to understand that immense and everlasting power could be bartered by peddling handouts in exchange for votes.
If liberal politicians know anything, it's human nature. If you give people things they did not earn from sources from which they did not contribute, those same people will soon become dependent on whatever you give them. Add to that a bit of Machiavellian trickery to redefine those handouts into rights, and voila! You have just created a permanent voting base.
In truth, liberals simply rebranded the definition of what our founders meant when they scribed the words, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights." Spinning and twisting the interpretation by suggesting "unalienable rights" are tangibles like health insurance, college educations, and food stamps rather than the intangibles our founders envisioned as "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," liberals transformed the Declaration of Independence into a Declaration of Dependence. Before long, people bought into their lies, believing they had rights to certain "entitlements" simply because they breathed.
Sadly, these lies metastasized within today's Democratic Party; chock full of liberals so extreme, Blue Dogs have all but disappeared. Now the entire Democratic Party platform revolves around the dangerous and devilishly un-American idea that individuals cannot achieve success without government intervention. They are dead wrong.
That the Democratic National Convention (DNC) would ask Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren to speak at its national convention in September tells us all we need to know about the DNC's vision for America. Warren's words spoken in 2011, and so echoed in recent days by President Obama, suggesting it is impossible for Americans to attain success devoid of the federal government is an indictment on how far from the American dream they have fallen.
Ms. Warren further suggests that successful job creators are obligated to an "underlying social contract" in order to "pay [it] forward for the next kid who comes along," thereby ensuring future generations will never have the ability to stand on their own without the government.
The fact that unemployment rose to 8.3 percent last week is an indictment on President Obama, Elizabeth Warren and big government Democrats who believe rights are endowed by government. The ridiculous notion that business owners didn't build their businesses speaks to their ineptitude and explains why unemployment numbers continue to move in the wrong direction. Obviously, Ivy League school attendance and acumen are not always mutually inclusive.
Had our founding fathers believed in entitlements over ingenuity, this "New World" would be just like the old one, which is a case study in what happens when liberals are left to themselves. Well said Susan.
If the Obama re-election campaign has not yet made you feel like you want to take a shower, then you are either not paying attention or you have an incredible tolerance for lies. Make no mistake, Obama, the Democrats in Congress and the party's celebrity-funded Super PACs will do whatever is necessary to hold on to the power they feel slipping through their fingers. And that includes outright lies.
What a buncha liars the Obama white house are,lol and about as good at it as they are at running the country.
Rahm Emanuel cynically said, "You never want a crisis to go to waste." It is now becoming clear that the crisis he was referring to is Barack Obama's presidency.
Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.Â
Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.
-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care.Â It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?
-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."
-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?Â Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government.Â Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.
-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.
With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
good opinion piece!
Sandra Fluke whata tool she was, where did she go?
