what can ya say….

(video courtesy Greensboring.com) In the video, Obama explains how his Father, when returning from World War II, was treated properly.  Obama was speaking to veterans at the time. Truly, he takes ‘appeal to your audience’ to a whole new level.

A 3-year-old soldier.  Impressive.  It was September 1st [1939] when Nazi Germany first invaded Poland.  Obama’s father would have been three at the time.  Facts truly are stubborn things.  Perhaps what’s most interesting about the verbal ‘misstep’ is the ease and sincerity at which he pulls it off.  Kinda makes you wonder what else he might be lying about…

liberty and ron paul

To my two loyal readers, sorry for my absence as I have been a little under the weather with what now has been diagnosed as TMJ. TMJ is a Jaw alignment problem that is not fatal but annoying as hell. It’s like a Migraine that creeps up from your Jaw and spreads from shoulders to top of your head. I now have an under bite like a British Bulldog,  any ways I thought I would continue my promoting of Ron Paul with this current message posted below. Hope you two are having a great start to the week, Sincerely, The LB.

you go rush

Love him or loathe him, he nailed this one right on the head……….

By Rush Limbaugh:

I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either, because you just don’t criticize anything having to do with September 11. Well, I can’t let the numbers pass by because it says something really disturbing about the entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you’re going to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.. If you are a surviving family member of an American soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a $6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.

Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you remarry. And there’s a payment of $211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those payments come to ascreeching halt.

Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that it’s not enough. Their deaths were tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families know the dangers.. (Actually, soldiers are put in harms way by politicians and commanding officers.)

We also learned over the weekend that some of the victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an organization asking for the same deal that the September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now asking for compensation as well.

You see where this is going, don’t you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country. It’s just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East while their families have to survive on food stamps and live in low-rent housing.  Make sense?

However, our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. Many of you don’t know that they only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus. They do not receive Social Security on retirement because they didn’t have to pay into the system. If some of the military people stay in for 20 years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm’s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month. I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting.

“When do we finally do something about this?” If this doesn’t seem fair to you, it is time to forward this to as many people as you can.

“no he can’t” by Dr. Anne Wortham

[This letter was written in November after Barack Obama won the election.  Dr. Anne Wortham Ph.D. is an associate professor of sociology at Illinois State University.]  

Fellow Americans,

Please know: I am black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul’s name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a black president to love the ideal of America.

I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival – all that I know about the history of the United States of America , all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the “change” that Obama asserts has come to America . Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared “progressive” whites who voted for him because he doesn’t look like them. I would have to be wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration – political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

I would have to believe that “fairness” is the equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that man who asks me to “go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice” is speaking in my interest. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the “bottom up,” and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.

Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting “Yes We Can!” Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead – and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.

So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a black man to the office of the president of the United States , the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over – and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a black person. So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton , Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to – Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine – what little there is left – for the chance to feel good. There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness.

ron paul revolution – 2012

If only we had 545 Ron Paul like souls in Washington, with that I assure you there would be no Federal Reserve.  Our Constitution through congress would be governed by the people and would guide our monetary system.  Our Military in all their glory would be used with intelligence and honor.  Our government check book would know nothing of the Alice and Wonderland schizophrenic concepts of Keynesian economics. Ron Paul on the subject…

ron paul

This is a in your face whipping post. Ron Paul for President in 2012. That is if we are still here, you know after the Mayan Calender black holes and we are all sucked into a vortex of delicious Mexican food, drowned in Verde sauce, pummeled by the beak of the rooster and finally solidified in cheese dip for eternity.  But just in case that does not happen I will be spending some good time campaigning for Dr. Paul in the next days to come and I’ll start by linking to a very good article posted by that conservative dare-devil “The Classic Liberal”

“David Stockman served as a US Representative (R-MI) from 1977 until resigning on January 27, 1981, to accept appointment as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. Stockman is considered one of the most powerful OMB directors ever”   Click to continue…
