  • Pelosi searches for a game plan

    The problem is that the “good news” on the economy is based largely on the Dems cooking the numbers and the fawning media running around quoting the these same numbers, all the while carefully making certain that none of them actually check them out. A recent article stated that, if unemployment data were compiled in the same way that it was back in the Reagan years, it would be over 15 percent. The Dems and the media can tell us as many times as they want to that everything is wonderful but we all know that our dollar isn’t going nearly as far as it did just a few years ago and that, if we lose our job, good luck finding another one. And . . let’s not even get started on the insurance debacle. This article, like many by the media, glosses over the facts.

    Which helps explain why the majority of surgeons, physicians dentists etc., tend to vote Republican while actors, welfare recipients, and criminals tend to vote Dem. Yup, they have high IQs piled up on their side. Let’s not even start on today’s “journalists,” who have turned investigative journalism on its ear in favor of becoming the sort of propaganda artists that would make Hitler proud. Clearly, getting a degree in journalism requires the mentality of the “middle school mean kid.”

    I am not an expert in the field but I read recently that, if the unemployment rate were reached with the same data that was used during the Reagan years, it would be over 23 percent. They change the way they sort the data and can’t understand why the public sees through it.

    “Experts” have also taken the cost of both food and gasoline out of the equation when they tally inflation- with complete disregard for the fact that food and gasoline are the two things consumers have to purchase regularly. My guess is that, if we had a Republican in office, both food and gas would be put back into the equation. Everything this government and the lapdog press puts out to us is smoke and mirrors.

    Chris Rock just bragged that in his latest movie, “he got to kill all the white people.” Obama should pass an executive order that Hollywood MUST discontinue glamorizing violence, “life in the hood,” and the use of the “N” word and the “F” word. Guns have been in this country since its inception and it has only been since television and movies that violence and decent behavior has deteriorated by leaps and bounds.

    Hollywood loves to preach about how we should behave, think and talk - I say it is time we turned the attention to them.

    Instead of pointing the finger at gun owners, why not look at Hollywood. Chris Rock just bragged that in his latest movie, “he got to kill all the white people.” Hollywood constantly glamorizes “life in the hood,” language that no one should be using in public and can’t get enough of the word “nigger,” and then THEY feel free to point fingers at other groups. ‘’’

    No one - and I mean, no one, has more to do with the deterioration of decent behavior and lack of value on human life and decency than Hollywood. We should be pointing out in every blog and at every opportunity that Hollywood - instead of pointing outward - should be pointing at themselves.

    And THIS is a prime example of why public schools get a bad rap. Unlike private schools, public schools have no choice but to accept this type of trash - our laws force schools to educate him until he reaches an “age” where the government decides it is now “acceptable” to boot him out. One student like this can and does cost teachers their jobs and they can and do make learning in the classroom a challenge for the teachers. Many of the problems associated with the schools are, instead, problems such as this thug who are created by government policies and then the schools and classmates are stuck with him. If Obama is worried about “bullying” then he should support policies that punish this type of thug instead of enabling him.

    For Obama to follow the advice in this article, he would have to actually “work” and that is something this “celebrity” President is incapable of. He uses his office as a means to golf, entertain celebrities and tyrants of his choosing with outrageously extravagant, tax-payer funded events and to push through a radical agenda. He no interest in “getting along” with voters or even those in his own party. He is not so much as President as he is a dictator and a tyrant - working and communicating with the taxpayers are not important to him. (Not to mention that in his mind, the taxpayers who support his lavash parties and Michelle’s lavish vacations are too stupid for him to even be bothered with - something that he doesn’t bother to try to hide.)

    Sadly, a good friend works in a school district and, while this sounds like the schools are being self-indulgent, the increase in administration comes back to an significant increase in paperwork required by the government. Most schools now-days are understaffed for the workload - not the reverse, as this article would make you believe.

    The other thing to be read into this is we have to consider what “Obamacare” would do to healthcare. No longer will it be enough to provide care, we will need untold reams of paperwork to be submitted to bloated government agencies created just for the purpose of “overseeing” this monstrosity. If you want to be scared straight, take a look at other government agencies - the reason the post office, schools, etc., are suffering is due to the bloated amounts of paperwork required to feed the machine.

    I agree with you. Rick Snyder has done some good things but has been weak - maybe smartly so in such a union heavy state - but weakness doesn’t work when you are dealing with unions. The one thing I must admit in terms of unions is that, even though this proposal will likely fail, it works for them in the sense that Union households will turn out to vote based on the ballot proposals and this will work to Obama’s advantage. Those who may not have bothered to come out to vote will show up and vote. That, in itself, gives me doubts as to any chance of Romney taking Michigan. (Of course, with any luck, the opposite could occur and those against the initiatives will turn out in droves but I am not counting on it.)

    While Obama was clearly wrong on both points, the other factor that comes into play is that his sarcasm and condescension isn’t going to play well with the undecided. While libs love to talk down to the general public, the average voter has had it with Obama’s claims that his policies are good but that he just isn’t “explainin it well enough to us dumb voters.”

    Bottom line is that Obama’s policies are not the only thing hurting him. Campaigning to the contrary, Obama loves bullies and that is how he works. For most of middle America, this attitude does not play well.

    A judge may be able to overturn election results but one thing a judge cannot do is open the State Constitution and make changes that will guarantee that Public Sector unions get first dibs on State monies or that they can force people to pay dues against their will. These items are the true reason behind this proposal. They watched Scott Walker make changes that take away the Union’s right to automatically make the State be their enforcer in terms of Union Dues and they want to make certain the same thing can’t happen in Michigan. If this is voted down, a judge cannot give them what they are looking for.

They may not like Obama but they will hold their nose and vote for him or stay home (which is our hope). Unbelievably, there are many Dems who actually still find Obama to be “The One” and will vote enthusiastically but, in the meantime, they have lost many of the moderates of the party - which could be just enough to shift this election.

Any patriotic American and veterans in particular, can’t like the building evidence that our “I will be honest with you” President not only let four Americans die but went on to try to bury the incident and condemn the Republicans for “politicizing” it. Worse yet, was the fact that the press spent the first three days slamming Romney for “politicizing” it when they should have been spending that time trying to get ot the bottom of what happened.

    Bottom line, this issue may not cause a large shift in voting but even a couple percentage points could result in an Obama loss - with the cover-up hurting him even more than the event, itself.

    It all goes back to one big principle.

    The media is the outlet whose job it is SUPPOSED to be to keep the average citizen “informed.” Instead, the media has turned into a lib propaganda machine who makes it their job to try to make certain Americans are “misinformed.”

    Bottom line - the only Americans who are actually informed are the ones to make the attempt to go around the mainstream media and dig out the actual truth. As indicated in this article, libs don’t really WANT to know the truth - they want to believe that the candidate who gives away the goodies to those who don’t earn it is the best candidate for the country. When informed to the contrary, they cover their ears and declare that it doesn’t matter.

Then cut to his speech to the UN where he lambasted the video for causing the violence - then cut to his claims that he “just didn’t have all the information” to move forward. The fact that the media has covered for this fiasco borders on being evil and complicit. Obviously, the media considers the lives of those four Americans less important than re-electing the President who allowed it to happen - and then tried to bury the event, all in an attempt to keep the image of “having stopped Al Quada from being a risk to Americans.”

    At the end of Carter’s term many Americans watched their televisions in horror as Muslim extremists who had hi-jacked a plane murdered an American soldier and, rightly, raged against Jimmy Carter for having allowed extremists to reach this point and commit these acts against their countrymen. Both Obama and Hillary (as well as the talking heads for the administration) keep pushing the image of Libyans gently carrying our Ambassador’s body to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. If the average American could see the pictures in Great Britain’ s papers showing the Libyans dragging the body through the streets and taking pictures as though he were a trophy, Obama would suffer the same fate as Carter.

    The misrepresentation by this administration makes you doubt every detail given of Libyans fighting by the side of Americans in the battle in Benghazi. However, much like Fast and Furious, the media will do everything in its power to keep the public in the dark.

After Obama’s display in all three debates few of us are left wondering why even the Dems can’t find it in themselves to vote for items that Obama tries to ram through. No one likes to be talked down to and ridiculed and Obama blustered his way through the debates using both tactics rather than present a reasoned argument or even bother to listen to what the other person in the debate had to say.

    Honestly, - his attitude that women are voting based only on access to free birth control and abortions is insulting.
