Does Fact That Democrats Let Out 22-Year-Old Monsters With 6 Felony Convictions Out On Street Have Anything To Do With Violence In Our Cities?

August 29, 2016

We live in the most amazing time in the entire history of the human race.  Ignorant and depraved and pathologically narcissistic people who vote stupidly despite more information being available than at any time in history are rapidly plunging what used to be the greatest nation on earth into a dinosaur-type extinction.

Basically it comes down to this: we now have a majority of frankly bad people in America.  Bad people ultimately despise the truth and literally prefer to believe lies.  Bad people don’t care about any actual “justice” or “fairness”; if they can cynically exploit the power of an increasingly tyrannous government to confiscate the result of one group of people’s hard work to “redistribute” it to themselves, they’re all in.  Bad people are perennially “butthurt” and constantly emote in the Way of Cain who murdered his brother Abel and somehow still amazingly saw himself as the victim.

Bad people vote DEMOCRAT.  Democrats know full-damn-well that criminals and crooks and predators and murders and rapists and drug dealers and pedophiles and every other form of human cockroach vote DEMOCRAT.   And Democrats have proven it: the Virginia governor (lifelong Clinton associate Terry McAuliffe, Democrat) ordered criminally-convicted felons to have their voting rights restored so they could vote for the party of evil and allow a wicked political party to do to the nation in public what they do to helpless innocent people in the darkness.  The State Supreme Court overturned him the first time, but it’s really important to elect Democrats and only the most vile people will do it, so he came back and again ordered the worst human filth on earth to be able to say “I’m with her!” and vote for Hillary.  Oh, yes, that Democrat governor is getting out the vote for Hillary.  The more criminals, the more illegal immigrants, the more cheating, the better for Democrats.  That’s why they WILL NOT allow any system that will in any way, shape or form even make a slight attempt to ensure our elections are actually legitimate where elections would be determined by decent registered voters.

The most evil people in America are the most reliable Democrat base.  FACT.

And we are living in the aftermath of the hostile takeover of the decent by the vile.  With the decent being forced to shut up in imposed shame by the rhetorical bullying and slandering tool called “political correctness.”

It’s just amazing to watch the media work.  When Donald Trump changes his position on illegal immigration (and yeah, he did) he’s “flip-flopping” and the same media that demonized him for holding his original position are now demonizing him for changing that same position they demonized him for holding.  But when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton change their position on gay marriage (and yeah, they DID) they are praised for “evolving.”

Getting close to where I’m going here, two brothers – two BLACK brothers, mind you – with a profound history of felony convictions (one was actually wearing an ankle bracelet at the time of the deed) – murdered famous basketball player Dwayne Wade’s cousin in Chicago (a city with the tightest gun-control regulations in the nation).

Donald Trump came out and tweeted something to the effect that this was yet another proof that black people were being totally and tragically failed by Democrats who have owned these criminal roachhole cities for decades and promised good and delivered only EVIL decade after decade.  And he got slammed for it because he was “cynically exploiting a tragedy.”

It didn’t matter that HELL, AT LEAST DONALD TRUMP WAS TALKING ABOUT IT.  Barack Obama said NOTHING.  Hillary Clinton said NOTHING.  Because this was another of millions of black-on-black violence cases where these Democrat beasts couldn’t demonize white people and it happened in a city where they couldn’t demonize the 2nd Amendment.  And so like MILLIONS of other black-on-black violence situations, it just never happened.  Crickets are chirping except for demonizing Donald Trump for talking about it.

Didn’t matter that the murder of that mother of four young children occurred in the most heavily gun-regulated city in America.

Didn’t matter that Dwayne Wade had already “cynically exploited” the same tragedy by using his cousin’s death for his political agenda of even more failed gun control.  I guess it’s okay to cynically exploit the senseless death of a mother of four for your political ideology as long as you’re a family member.  Oh, wait, I mean as long as you’re a DEMOCRAT.  That’s how the mainstream media frames this a thousand times out of a thousand cases.

Gold Star Family members like hard-core Democrat Khan are honored and their integrity are beyond question; Gold Star Family members like Patricia Smith are slandered and demonized.

Again, bad people prefer lies.  And journalists and the institution that makes their propaganda possible are overwhelmingly Democrat, and that’s all you need to know to understand that they are on the side of the criminals against the decent as already documented above.

Let me patiently try to explain THE reason why that murder and so many other terrible, tragic, evil murders just like it occurred: because of DEMOCRATS and their vile policies.

Here’s the story:

Brothers arrested in slaying of Dwyane Wade’s cousin
Nykea Aldridge shot to death in Chicago
UPDATED 7:37 AM EDT Aug 29, 2016
Darwin Sorrells Jr., 26, and Derren Sorrells, 22, have each been charged with first-degree murder and first-degree attempted murder, police said Sunday. Darwin Sorrells has also been charged with a count of criminal trespass, a misdemeanor.
Both men are gang members who were on parole for gun convictions, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson said Sunday at a news conference. They are both being held without bond, a source with knowledge of the case told CNN Sunday.
Aldridge was killed Friday afternoon when she was caught in the crossfire of a shooting while pushing her infant child in a stroller near Dulles School of Excellence on the city’s south side, police said. The child, about 3 weeks old, was not injured, family members said. […]
Suspects were on parole
Derren Sorrels had six felony convictions and was on parole for motor vehicle theft and escape from custody when the shooting happened, Johnson said. He wore an ankle bracelet but had taken it off during a period in which he was allowed to look for work, Deenihan said.
Darwin Sorrells was on parole for a gun charge. He had been sentenced to six years in January 2013 but was released early, Johnson said.

So the Democrat notion of “punishment” for a seven-time felon is a removable ankle-bracelet and Democrats deal with hard-core criminals with about as much harshness as they have dealt with what will likely be our Criminal-in-Chief Hillary Clinton whose treatment has destroyed any sense of legitimacy in our justice system.

I want you to explain to me how Democrats can look you in the eye and tell you that guns kill people but 22-year-old gangbangers who already have SIX felony convictions and was out on the damn street awaiting trial for his seventh don’t.

If it weren’t for Democrats, we would be putting these rabid vermin behind bars.  And better yet, we would be hanging them, shooting them, injecting rat poison into their veins, or whatever else you do to euthanize creatures that have no shred of humanity in them because they have so completely absorbed the worldview of the Democratic Party.

You look at the population groups that commit almost all the murders in America and then you look at the political party registration of those groups.  For example, if you consider Hispanics as non-white the way the government does in every other statistic other than crime, nonwhites are responsible for over 90 percent of the crimes in America.  That’s true both nationally and in any liberal city you want to name.  It’s amazing: whenever butthurt Hispanics want to decry their victimhood, their Hispanic being oppressed by whites.  But when they viciously murder or rape someone, well, gringo must have done it.  And if you have any questions about that, well, No habla.  And when you consider the percentage likelihood that young adults vote Democrat and compare it to the percentage of the most shockingly violent and despicable crimes there are, and it’s pretty much 99.9999999999999 percent of all violent crime being committed by Democrat party groups.

Democrats – you know, between their chants of “black lives matter!” are letting the most vile, violent, human roaches imaginable back out onto the streets over and over and over again.

Just as Democrats aren’t even bothering to deal with illegal immigrants or any other DEMOCRAT PARTY GROUP of parasites and leeches.  Illegal immigration costs America more than $113 billion a year.  While illegal immigrants comprise 3.5% of the U.S. population, this group is responsible for 36.7 percent of ALL federal criminal sentences.  And f.y.i. illegal immigration is NOT a federal crime being considered here; we’re talking about murder, drug trafficking, money laundering, kidnapping and hostage-taking, etc.  More than 820,000 people walking freely around the streets of America are illegal immigrants who are CONVICTED CRIMINALS.  And while the liberal mainstream media isn’t reporting that startling and terrifying avalanche of illegal immigrant criminality, it was a liberal think-tank that revealed the fact.

It should be absolutely no wonder that the father of the terrorist murderer who murdered fifty and left dozens with terrifying wounds is a lifelong DEMOCRAT who was invited and attended in a place of honor a Hillary Clinton rally; just as the terrorist murderer himself was a lifelong registered Democrat.  Like father, like son, like Democrat.

Oh, we live in a cockroach media climate the screams “black lives matter!” and pouring out totally bogus statistics and even bogus police brutality claims to back up their fake butthurt claim.  When this story that I tell you in advance will make you want to puke tells the real story of which race is victimizing which race.  And that story coming right on top of this one where a black thug stabbed and murdered two white nuns for the crime of trying to help the poorest people in America.  Take a look HERE to see the FACT of which race is predators preying upon which race:

black on white crime

This table can be used for a number of interesting calculations.  First, we find that during the 2012/2013 period, blacks committed an average of 560,600 violent crimes against whites, whereas whites committed only 99,403 such crimes against blacks.  This means blacks were the attackers in 84.9 percent of violent crimes involving blacks and whites.

Let’s get to the REAL cause of violence.  It is NOT guns.  It is DEMOCRATS.  It is the incredibly evil policies of Democrats to release and keep re-releasing predators onto society to prey on the innocent again and again and again and again and again.

Again, a 22-year-old man with SIX felony convictions and on probation awaiting trial for a seventh and he is free to murder in THE most gun-controlled city in America.  And if you are a Democrat, it’s not the fault of your party for voting for and installing judges who rule for predators to be free to do the most vile things imaginable; no, it’s guns that somehow float around and pull their own triggers and the Democrat-released monsters who happen to be holding those smoking guns are “victims” just like Cain whose brother Abel’s blood screamed to God from the ground was a “victim.”

This isn’t about “race”; it is about CULTURE.  And in the case of African-American culture, it is about an incredibly vile, out-of-control, vicious, hateful, bitter poisonous, toxic culture.

I have come to know a woman whose parents are Danish.  She is biologically as white as you can get.  But her parents were Danish missionaries to Paraguay.  And she was born in Paraguay and grew up with Paraguayan children and then married another missionary to Paraguay who had come from Argentina.  So, in other words, she grew up Hispanic.  So here’s the question: is she white because she’s biologically/racially Danish or is she  Hispanic because she was immersed in Hispanic culture and lives and thinks like a Hispanic?  And the answer is obvious: she is FAR more Hispanic than she is white.  She is far more comfortable with Hispanics than with whites now as a result of that acculturation.

Race isn’t the issue.  Culture is the issue.

Democrats reject that.  They fixate on race while they poison every single culture they come to indoctrinate with their garbage.  Republicans are creationists and believe that God created human beings in His own image, and that male and female created He them.  Democrats believe in evolution: they believe in the title of Darwin’s book: On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.  That is a vile title for a vile worldview in which “favoured races” dominate the inferior races – or the politically incorrect races – in a struggle that they create and that they exploit as they pit the races against one another.

Democrats are also pathologically postmodernist and existentialist and fascist and reject the foundationalism that Republicans embrace that allows the belief in moral absolutes.  Instead, Democrats deny any actual, objective truth and create their own “truth.”  Which is to say they make up lies and then use those lies to create an ever larger web of lies that are shaping our culture in the most awful ways imaginable.

I’ve been talking about Democrats being murderers, and God in heaven will one day judge you as the murderers you are as you cower before His Great White Throne and explain why you murdered TEN TIMES more innocent human beings in the womb than the wicked Nazis murdered Jews in the Holocaust.  I have stated this before that I would literally rather die than vote Democrat and stand with you in that judgment accountable for the sixty million murders of innocent human beings that you will all stand guilty of as your votes created and sustained and continues that Holocaust.

Bringing it back to blacks, we find that 6 out of every 10 black lives that are snuffed out are snuffed out before that black life even escapes from his or her mother’s womb.  And Democrats will stand in judgment for that crime against black lives, too.

I would far prefer to be a roach than you on the last day, the coming Day of Judgment, Democrat.  And if you weren’t a completely wicked fool you would tremble for the ultimate eternal fate that awaits you as True, Ultimate Justice will one day finally and eternally prevail upon the earth.








Death To America, ObamaCare-Style: ObamaCare Already A Nightmare For Doctors, Soon To Be A Nightmare For Poor, Sick Patients

April 4, 2015

Remember how Barack Hussein Obama said over and over and over again that if you like your doctor, his ObamaCare would allow you to keep your doctor, and if you like your health plan, his ObamaCare would allow you to keep your health plan?

He lied.  And in the minimum of 37 times he lied on that issue alone, Barack Obama became the most documented liar in all of human history as he looked more than 300 million Americans in the eye and lied like the hell that he is again and again and again.  It was “the lie of the year,” and you’ve got to be a world-class demon-possessed liar to emerge out of all the lies that we are told in this country today.

But that was hardly this demon-possessed liar’s only lie about ObamaCare.  Obama promised his ObamaCare would help doctors, that it would help poor, sick patients, that it would bend the cost curve for healthcare down.

All lies.

Here’s an article from Saturday’s USA Today that exposes these lies (it appeared in my print edition under the title, “Maddened by metrics”):

Quality payment incentives: What’s the point?
Jordan Rau, Kaiser Health News 6 a.m. EDT April 4, 2015

Dr. Michael Kitchell initially welcomed the federal government’s new quality incentives for doctors. His medical group in Iowa has always scored better than most in the quality reports that Medicare has provided doctors in recent years, he said.

But when the government launched a new payment system that will soon apply to all physicians who accept Medicare, Kitchell’s McFarland Clinic in Ames didn’t win a bonus. In fact, there are few winners: Out of 1,010 large physician groups that the government evaluated, just 14 are getting payment increases this year, according to Medicare. Losers also are scarce. Only 11 groups will be getting reductions for low quality or high spending.

“We performed well, but not enough for the bonus,” said Kitchell, a neurologist. “My sense of disappointment here is really significant. Why even bother?”

Within three years, the Obama administration wants quality of care to be considered in allocating $9 of every $10 Medicare pays directly to providers to treat the elderly and disabled. One part of that effort is well underway: revising hospital payments based on excess readmissions, patient satisfaction and other quality measures. Expanding this approach to physicians is touchier, as many are suspicious of the government judging them and reluctant to share performance metrics that Medicare requests.

“Without having any indication that this is improving patient care, they just keep piling on additional requirements,” said Mark Donnell, an anesthesiologist in Silver City, N.M. Donnell said he only reports a third of the quality measures he is expected to. “So much of what’s done in medicine is only done to meet the requirements,” he said.

The new financial incentive for doctors, called a physician value-based payment modifier, allows the federal government to boost or lower the amount it reimburses doctors based on how they score on quality measures and how much their patients cost Medicare. How doctors rate this year will determine payments for more than 900,000 physicians by 2017.

Medicare is easing doctors into the program, applying it this year only to medical groups with at least 100 health professionals, including doctors, nurses, speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists. Next year, the program expands Medicare to groups of 10 or more health professionals. In 2017, all remaining doctors who take Medicare — along with about 360,000 other health professionals — will be included. By early in the next decade, 9% of the payments Medicare makes to doctors and other professionals would be at risk under a bill that the House of Representatives passed in March.

The quality metrics used to judge doctors vary by specialty. One test looks at how consistently doctors keep an accurate list of all the drugs patients were taking. Others track the rate of complications after cataract surgery, say, or whether patients received recommended treatments for particular cancers.

There are more than 250 quality measures. Groups and doctors must report a selection — generally nine, which they choose — or else be automatically penalized. This year, 319 large medical groups are having their reimbursements reduced by 1% because they did not meet Medicare’s reporting standards.

Physicians who do report their quality data fear the measures are sometimes misguided, usually a hassle, and may encourage doctors to avoid poorer and sicker patients, who tend to have more trouble controlling asthma or staying on antidepressants, for instance.

Leanne Chrisman-Khawam, a primary care doctor in Cleveland, said many of her patients have difficulty just getting to follow-up appointments, since they must take two or three buses. She said those battling obesity or diabetes are less likely to reform their diets to emphasize fresh foods, which are expensive and less available in poor neighborhoods. “You’re going to link that physician’s payment to that life?” she asked.

Hamilton Lempert, an emergency room doctor in Cincinnati, criticized one measure that requires him to track how often he follows up with patients with high blood pressure.

“Most everyone’s blood pressure is elevated in the emergency department because they’re anxious,” Lempert said. Another metric encourages testing the heart’s electrical impulses in patients with non-traumatic chest pain, which Lempert said has led emergency rooms to give priority to these cases over more serious ones.

“It’s just very frustrating, the things we have to do to jump through the hoops,” he said.

In the first year doctors are affected by the program, they can choose to forgo bonuses or penalties based on their performances. After that, the program is mandatory. This year, 564 groups opted out, but even if all of them had been included, only 3% would have gotten increases and 38% would have seen lower payments, mostly for not satisfactorily reporting quality measures, Medicare data show.

Smaller groups and solo practitioners are even less likely to report quality to the government. “The participation rates, even though it’s mandated, are just really low,” said Dr. Alyna Chien, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. It’s “a level of analytics that just is not typically built into a doctor’s office.”

Dr. Lisa Bielamowicz, chief medical officer of The Advisory Board, a consulting group, predicted more doctors will start reporting their quality scores when the prospect of fines is greater. “They are not going to motivate until it is absolutely necessary,” she said. “If you look at these small practices, a lot of them just run on a shoestring.”

This year’s assessments of big groups were based on patients seen in 2013. A total of $11 million of the $1.2 billion Medicare pays doctors is being given out as bonuses, which translates to a 5% payment increase for those 14 groups getting payment increases this year. That money came from low performers and those that did not report quality measures to Medicare’s satisfaction; they are losing up to 1%.

The exact amount any of these groups lose will depend on the number and nature of the services they provide over the year. This year, 268 medical groups were exempted because at least one of their doctors was participating in one of the government’s experiments in providing care differently.

Officials at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services declined to be interviewed about the program, but said in a prepared statement that they have been providing all doctors with reports showing their quality and costs. “We hope that this information will provide meaningful and actionable information to physicians so that they may improve the coordination and integration of the health care provided to beneficiaries,” the statement said.

Kaiser Health News is an editorially independent program of the Kaiser Family Foundation.

How the hell do you think fining doctors – who are already operating on a shoestring – for not doing something that massively increases their costs because making those reports is very obviously not something they are equipped to do, is going to lower the cost of healthcare?  Are you really that stupid that you believe it will???

Doctors are frustrated and getting more and more frustrated.  We’ve already seen them retiring at the highest rate since Hippocrates was working on his oath millennia ago.  It’s been going on since the damn evil law passed and it’s going to pick up speed.  We’re seeing fewer and fewer doctors left to service larger and larger networks of patients.  Now they are increasingly dropping out of ObamaCare and its reporting requirements as fast as they can.  How in the hell is that supposed to improve patient care?  Are you really that stupid that you believe it will???

You’ve got to love this prophetic title from CBS News that heralds future doom:

Obamacare 2015: Higher costs, higher penalties

With the Affordable Care Act to start enrollment for its second year on Nov. 15, some unpleasant surprises may be in store for some.

That’s because a number of low-priced Obamacare plans will raise their rates in 2015, making those options less affordable. On top of that, penalties for failing to secure a health-insurance plan will rise steeply next year, which could take a big bite out of some families’ pocketbooks.

“The penalty is meant to incentivize people to get coverage,” said senior analyst Laura Adams of “This year, I think a lot of people are going to be in for a shock.”

Oops.  Sorry, poor people.  It sort of looks like Obama and his demonic minions didn’t actually give a DAMN about you, after all.

But the real lie – the lie that makes “Democrat” truly stand for “DEMOn-possessed bureauCRAT” – is the one about helping the poor and the sick get better access to medical care.  Let me replay the lines from the article:

Physicians who do report their quality data fear the measures are sometimes misguided, usually a hassle, and may encourage doctors to avoid poorer and sicker patients, who tend to have more trouble controlling asthma or staying on antidepressants, for instance.

Leanne Chrisman-Khawam, a primary care doctor in Cleveland, said many of her patients have difficulty just getting to follow-up appointments, since they must take two or three buses. She said those battling obesity or diabetes are less likely to reform their diets to emphasize fresh foods, which are expensive and less available in poor neighborhoods. “You’re going to link that physician’s payment to that life?” she asked.

Barack Obama – in his wickedness – has designed a system that pits doctors against the poorest, sickest patients.  The doctor can treat them, sure, but only if he or she is willing to pay severely for it and be punished for it by an evil system that promised to do the very opposite of what it is in fact doing.

Barack Obama looks down on that doctor from his satanic Mt. Olympus and he sees a doctor whose stats aren’t up to muster because that doctor is treating sick patients who will tend to get sicker even with the very best of care.  And Obama decrees, “That doctor must be punished!”  And the fines and the penalties start kicking in.  Better to just leave that poor, sick patient on the side of the road, modern-day Good Samaritan physician.  Because Obama will come after you with all the power of totalitarian government arbitrariness if you try to help that patient.

Here’s another demonic DEMOnic bureauCRAT lie for you: Obama promised fewer people would use emergency rooms; when the very OPPOSITE is happening BECAUSE OF HIS DEMONIC LAW as USA TODAY documents:

More patients flocking to ERs under Obamacare

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It wasn’t supposed to work this way, but since the Affordable Care Act took effect in January, Norton Hospital has seen its packed emergency room become even more crowded, with about 100 more patients a month.

That 12 percent spike in the number of patients — many of whom aren’t actually facing true emergencies — is spurring the Louisville hospital to convert a waiting room into more exam rooms.

“We’re seeing patients who probably should be seen at our (immediate-care centers),” said Lewis Perkins, the hospital’s vice president of patient care and chief nursing officer. “And we’re seeing this across the system.”

That’s just the opposite of what many people expected under Obamacare, particularly because one of the goals of health reform was to reduce pressure on emergency rooms by expanding Medicaid and giving poor people better access to primary care.

Instead, many hospitals in Kentucky and across the nation are seeing a surge of those newly insured Medicaid patients walking into emergency rooms.

Nationally, nearly half of ER doctors responding to a recent poll by the American College of Emergency Physicians said they’ve seen more visits since Jan. 1, and nearly nine in 10 expect those visits to rise in the next three years. Mike Rust, president of the Kentucky Hospital Association, said members statewide describe the same trend.

Experts cite many reasons: A long-standing shortage of primary-care doctors leaves too few to handle all the newly insured patients. Some doctors won’t accept Medicaid. And poor people often can’t take time from work when most primary care offices are open, while ERs operate round-the-clock and by law must at least stabilize patients. […]

The same “experts” who didn’t see what we conservatives were predicting EVER SINCE THIS DEMONIC LAW THREATENED AMERICA TO BEGIN WITH are refusing the see the REAL cause: the law was based entirely on lies because the Democrats who shoved this evil monstrosity down our collectivist throats are demon-possessed liars.

Not one month ago, I wrote up my own experience with the Veterans Administration as to how this very arbitrary bureaucratic mindset is just taking over the entire system.  Within the span of one week, I suffered that arbitrariness of penalizing decent people because of the behavior of others TWICE.  First, I was contacted and ORDERED to take a urine test.  Why?  I wanted to know; I’d just taken one and that test had nothing to do with my healthcare.  Rather, it had been a drug test because I’m on oxycodone for the pain created by my service-connected medical condition.

Well, less than three months after the last test – which proved I was completely clean of anything but what I was supposed to be taking – I was being commanded to take it again.  And apparently under Obama I will have to be treated like a drug criminal at least four times a year from now on.

Why?  Because other veterans somewhere else are abusing their prescription drugs.  So the obvious thing to do – as obvious as it is to treat a 103-year-old Catholic nun in a walker like a young Middle Eastern terrorist male – is to treat EVERYONE like a criminal or an addict.

I have been receiving physical therapy for a major shoulder surgery.  I was given a month-and-a-half worth of appointments and I kept every single one of them.  In fact, I have NEVER missed an appointment with the VA.  But because somebody somewhere had missed appointments, the “system” decided to treat EVERYONE like a no-shower.

So I know firsthand exactly what these doctors are saying: it doesn’t matter if I do right or not; the system will punish me anyway.  And it will do so by protecting the very worst people (who of course vote Democrat, don’t they?) by redistributing the pain for the cost of their godawful behavior onto everyone else.  That’s what the welfare system is based on, baby: “Oh, you don’t have a job because you refuse to get off your fat, pimply ass and look for one and it’s easier to pump out ten kids and collect increased payments for each one?  Don’t worry, dearie, here’s the money somebody else earned by working his butt off.  Please don’t forget to vote for Messiah Obama unless you want mean Republicans to force you to produce something with your life besides flatulence!”

I’ve talked to several veterans who are as livid as I am.  And they are saying they’re just going to start buying the marijuana that the same damn DEMOnic bureauCRATS who are forcing them to take the piss tests for drugs are opening up for everybody else so they can be happier welfare recipients.  And why bother busting your ass to show up for appointments when you’re going to be treated like dirt whether you show up or not???

And so they are producing the very opposite thing to what they are stupidly claiming they are producing.

What Obama is producing is the same thing the ayatollahs Obama is appeasing and negotiating with are calling for: “Death to America!”

The fact of the matter is that ObamaCare was sold and marketed entirely on the basis of lies.  That is just a documented fact.

But the even sadder fact of the matter is that unless the Supreme Court finally steps in and does the right thing and overturns this fascist takeover of the American healthcare system, ObamaCare will destroy America because nothing will be able to prevent it from doing so.  It was crafted as a metastasizing cancer that will keep becoming larger and making the patient America sicker until that patient collapses and dies.


The Democrat Party, Liberalism OWN The Wealth Divide. Because They CAUSED It.

June 19, 2014

I came across this article from the Los Angeles Times a couple of days ago and something popped out at me.  I’ll bold face it when it appears in the article.  And then we’ll talk about it:

San Francisco leads the way with $15 minimum-wage ballot measure
By Lee Romney
June 15, 2014, 5:39 PM|reporting from SAN FRANCISCO

Eleven years ago, San Francisco set precedent with the first citywide minimum-wage boost, giving it the highest wage floor in the nation. Another first soon required all employers to provide paid sick days. Yet another mandated healthcare for all..

Now, the city that recently won dubious distinction for the fastest-growing wealth divide is leading again.

Let’s look at the timeline: San Francisco – THE most liberal, most Democrat Party-worshiping, city on earth – imposed their “highest wage floor in the nation.”

And then what happened as a result?  The city that “won the dubious distinction for the FASTEST-GROWING WEALTH DIVIDE.”  That’s what happened.

Because San  Francisco is FASCIST.  And FASCISM loves to pick who wins and who loses, who benefits and who gets punished.  Small businesses and new businesses that can’t afford to pay exorbitant wages get chased out, and the big, established businesses and the businesses that are started by wealthy elitists get to grow and grow and grow.  And the wealth divide is the inevitable result of liberal fascism.

What is true of fascists in San Francisco is just as true for our Fascist-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama:

Can You Guess Which President Had Worst Record On ‘Income Inequality’?

If Obama thinks he can pivot away from the failures of Obamacare towards the cause of relieving “income inequality,” he’s going to find even greater failures there already on the part of his administration.

The vast majority of gains in wealth have gone to the top earners, making income inequality increase drastically under Obama. In fact, of the last three presidents, the income gap didn’t change overall during the Bush years, increased second most during Clinton’s time, and has increased the most with only 5 years under Obama’s belt.


Obama himself has admitted this before questioning by George Stephanopoulos, where he amazingly tried to blame Bush for the 95% of income growth during his own “recovery” going to the top 1%.  

income-inequality-obamaAs we reported last year when Obama was loudly denouncing the nation’s “income inequality”:

President Obama… is presiding under epic Wall Street earnings (they crashed under Bush, remember?), deteriorating income levels for the middle class, an increasingly part-time nation partly fueled by the looming employer mandate of Obamacare, and long-term unemployment so persistent that millions of people are dropping off the labor force grid (that would be why the official unemployment rate is slowly going down).

And the Obamanomics failure extends to falling income across the board for the average American family. During the “worst recession since the Great Depression,” the real (inflation-adjusted) median annual household income fell by 1.8%, but fell by an incredible 4.4% during Obama’s “recovery.” That comes to each family making $2,400 less per year during Obama’s regime.

You would think the press would do its job and continue to question the president about his dismal record under this metric he keeps harping about, especially since the stimulus and Obamacare were so costly and supposed to relieve all of American’s ills.

Still waiting on the sea levels to lower, as well.

Notice, ALL of Obama’s regulations, all of his tax increases, all of his war on natural energy such as coal, oil and natural gas and all of his elevation of costly energy boondoggles, all of his policies of picking winners and losers, has done nothing but cause the wealth divide to soar, soar, SOAR.

What is interesting is that not only was Obama’s wealth gap worse than George W. Bush’s, but so also was Bill Clinton’s.  And keep in mind, this is the Bill Clinton who largely governed as a moderate, having renounced the big government liberalism that the Democrat Party embraces.  He assured us that under his presidency, “The era of big government is over.”  Because his “big government” period early in his presidency failed and failed the angry American people, and he had the wisdom to recognize it.

Obama brought it back.  And Hillary Clinton will grow it into even more of a fatal cancer than it already is under Obama.

We consider Obama’s policies and the result they have had on something that it turns out poor people need to live – FOOD – and we can only marvel at Obama’s hatred of the poor:

Price Index for Meats, Poultry, Fish & Eggs Rockets to All-Time High
June 17, 2014 – 11:20 AM
By Ali Meyer

( – The seasonally-adjusted price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs hit an all-time high in May, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In January 1967, when the BLS started tracking this measure, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 38.1. As of last May, it was 234.572. By this January, it hit 240.006. By April, it hit 249.362. And, in May, it climbed to a record 252.832.

“The index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs has risen 7.7 percent over the span [last year],” says the BLS. “The index for food at home increased 0.7 percent, its largest increase since July 2011. Five of the six major grocery store food group indexes increased in May. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 1.4 percent in May after a 1.5 increase in April, with virtually all its major components increasing,” BLS states.

Meat, Poultry, Fish & Egg Price Index Rockets to  All-Time High

In addition to this food index, the price for fresh whole chickens hit its all-time high in the United States in May.

In January 1980, when the BLS started tracking the price of this commodity, fresh whole chickens cost $0.70 per pound. By this May 2014, fresh whole chickens cost $1.56 per pound.

A decade ago, in May 2004, a pound of fresh chicken cost $1.04. Since then, the price has gone up 50%.

Imagine, if you make it vastly more expensive to grow food, while issuing one crippling regulation after another, food will become more expensive.  You’d think that was common sense, but it is like nuclear physics or neurosurgery to liberals.

Liberals believe you can hate job creators and love jobs.  You can’t.  These people are pathologically morally insane and their moral insanity is bearing the fruit that insanity produces: fewer and fewer jobs, jobs that pay less and less, part-time jobs because of ObamaCare, a lower standard of living, higher food costs, higher fuel costs, more pressure on more families just to keep their heads above water.

Hillary Clinton arrogantly, self-righteously, and in the face of all reality to the contrary, claimed that she and husband Bill were “dead broke” when they left the White House.  You want to talk about someone who is so utterly and so profoundly out of touch with reality and with ordinary people that it is beyond unreal?

“Dead broke” means asking your parents if you can have your old room back.  Or if they’ve passed, “dead broke” means begging a friend to let you sleep on their couch.  Or living in a shelter.  It doesn’t mean getting multi-million dollar loans to finance palatial “houses” while giving speeches for tens of thousands of dollars a pop.

But this out-of-touch crony capitalist fascist is actually going to run on the wealth divide that liberal policies impose on society.

These liberals are truly and simply nothing more than pure, cynical liars who count on the people’s ignorance and media propaganda (much the way Hitler and Stalin did) to secure their positions and entrench themselves.


Barack Obama – Who Actually TOLD US He Would Make Electricity Prices ‘Necessarily Skyrocket’ – Has Completely Broken Our Electrical Grid

April 30, 2014

I’ve been seeing articles about how “vulnerable” our electrical power grid has become to various potential crises.  And we’re finally starting to get to the root CAUSE of the REAL crisis.  In short, it is the “Crisis’-in-Chief” who also goes by the name Barack Hussein Obama.

Note how this article begins by blathering on about “the polar vortex.”  And then see how – by the time the average reader has probably switched his/her brain off – you see the paragraph that says:

The electrical system’s duress was a direct result of the polar vortex, the cold air mass that settled over the nation. But it exposed a more fundamental problem. There is a growing fragility in the U.S. electricity system, experts warn, the result of the shutdown of coal-fired plants, reductions in nuclear power, a shift to more expensive renewable energy and natural gas pipeline constraints. The result is likely to be future price shocks. And they may not be temporary.

So allow me to simply restate the main point: the problem that has caused your electricity bill to soar to never-before-seen heights – and STAY THERE FOREVER – is your stupid decision to elect and then re-elect Barack Obama and a frankly Demonic bureauCrat party (which is what “Democrat” actually stands for).  It was Obama’s dictate – cheered on by worshipful DemoCrats, to bankrupt the coal plants that provided HALF America’s electricity and force them to shut down, to kill nuclear power, to shift to these extravagant and financially ruinous “green” energies so that the rich liberals who bought and invested in these boondoggles could gorge on the pig trough of public money.

I want you to understand before you read the LA Times’ spin: I TOLD YOU THIS WOULD HAPPEN.  I told you it would happen before you elected Obama and said, “I hope they find out about this … before they make the biggest mistake of their lives.”

I pointed out and preserved for the historic record what Obama said:

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

“What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.


So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.


So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

It’s just that it will bankrupt them.”

That’s what Obama said.  That’s what Obama did.

Obama declared that electricity rates would “necessarily skyrocket” under his plan.

Obama said:

When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal…under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket…even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gasses, coal power plants, natural gas…you name it…whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retro-fit their operations.

That will cost money…they will pass that money on to the consumers.

Congratulations for voting for his damn plan.

For the record, as this article from a couple of years ago proves, this has been going on.  Obama is and has been at war with American energy and while Obama is powerless, helpless and weak before Putin he is a tyrant when it comes to dictating his domestic agenda.  His war has succeeded.

I pointed out that the United States is the Saudi Arabia of coal.  We have billions of tons of the stuff.  And Obama made it not only useless to America’s national security and economic prosperity but actually a HANDICAP to them.

And now you get to pay for Obama’s ruinous policies.

I’m stating as a FACT that the LA Times is a biased piece of dishonest propaganda.  As an example, when they talk about “the last decade” and begin their dating with “2006” they don’t bother to tell you that that was the year that Democrats – having lied to the American people – took over both the House and the Senate.  Back then, EVERYTHING was George Bush’s fault because he was the president and he was a Republican and NOTHING could be the fault of Nancy Pelosi’s liberal lordship over the House and Harry Reid’s liberal tyranny in the Senate.  And of course now EVERYTHING is the Republican House’s fault and NOTHING is the president’s fault or the still-there Harry Reid’s fault.  The first thing Pelosi and Reid and the Democrats began doing was imposing energy insanity on America – as I documented.  But given that the LA Times is staffed with propagandist liars who spin the news rather than report it, I want you to note that even THESE Goebbels are admitting reality now:

U.S. electricity prices may be going up for good
Experts warn of a growing fragility as coal-fired plants are shut down, nuclear power is reduced and consumers switch to renewable energy.
By Ralph Vartabedian
April 25, 2014, 8:47 p.m.

As temperatures plunged to 16 below zero in Chicago in early January and set record lows across the eastern U.S., electrical system managers implored the public to turn off stoves, dryers and even lights or risk blackouts.

A fifth of all power-generating capacity in a grid serving 60 million people went suddenly offline, as coal piles froze, sensitive electrical equipment went haywire and utility operators had trouble finding enough to keep power plants running. The wholesale price of electricity skyrocketed to nearly $2 per kilowatt hour, more than 40 times the normal rate. The price hikes cascaded quickly down to consumers. Robert Thompson, who lives in the suburbs of Allentown, Pa., got a $1,250 bill for January.

“I thought, how am I going to pay this?” he recalled. “This was going to put us in the poorhouse.”

The bill was reduced to about $750 after Thompson complained, but Susan Martucci, a part-time administrative assistant in Allentown, got no relief on her $654 charge. “It was ridiculous,” she said.

The electrical system’s duress was a direct result of the polar vortex, the cold air mass that settled over the nation. But it exposed a more fundamental problem. There is a growing fragility in the U.S. electricity system, experts warn, the result of the shutdown of coal-fired plants, reductions in nuclear power, a shift to more expensive renewable energy and natural gas pipeline constraints. The result is likely to be future price shocks. And they may not be temporary.

One recent study predicts the cost of electricity in California alone could jump 47% over the next 16 years, in part because of the state’s shift toward more expensive renewable energy.

“We are now in an era of rising electricity prices,” said Philip Moeller, a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, who said the steady reduction in generating capacity across the nation means that prices are headed up. “If you take enough supply out of the system, the price is going to increase.”

In fact, the price of electricity has already been rising over the last decade, jumping by double digits in many states, even after accounting for inflation. In California, residential electricity prices shot up 30% between 2006 and 2012, adjusted for inflation, according to Energy Department figures. Experts in the state’s energy markets project the price could jump an additional 47% over the next 15 years.

The problems confronting the electricity system are the result of a wide range of forces: new federal regulations on toxic emissions, rules on greenhouse gases, state mandates for renewable power, technical problems at nuclear power plants and unpredictable price trends for natural gas. Even cheap hydro power is declining in some areas, particularly California, owing to the long-lasting drought.

“Everywhere you turn, there are proposals and regulations to make prices go higher,” said Daniel Kish, senior vice president at the Institute for Energy Research. “The trend line is up, up, up. We are going into uncharted territory.”

New emissions rules on mercury, acid gases and other toxics by the Environmental Protection Agency are expected to result in significant losses of the nation’s coal-generated power, historically the largest and cheapest source of electricity. Already, two dozen coal generating units across the country are scheduled for decommissioning. When the regulations go into effect next year, 60 gigawatts of capacity — equivalent to the output of 60 nuclear reactors — will be taken out of the system, according to Energy Department estimates.

Moeller, the federal energy commissioner, warns that these rapid changes are eroding the system’s ability to handle unexpected upsets, such as the polar vortex, and could result in brownouts or even blackouts in some regions as early as next year. He doesn’t argue against the changes, but believes they are being phased in too quickly.

The federal government appears to have underestimated the impact as well. An Environmental Protection Agency analysis in 2011 had asserted that new regulations would cause few coal plant retirements. The forecast on coal plants turned out wrong almost immediately, as utilities decided it wasn’t economical to upgrade their plants and scheduled them for decommissioning.

The lost coal-generating capacity is being replaced largely with cleaner natural gas, but the result is that electricity prices are linked to a fuel that has been far more volatile in price than coal. The price of natural gas now stands at about $4.50 per million BTUs, more expensive than coal. Plans to export massive amounts of liquefied natural gas, the rapid construction of gas-fired power plants and the growing trend to convert the U.S. heavy truck fleet to natural gas could exert even more upward pressure on prices. Malcolm Johnson, a former Shell Oil gas executive who now teaches the Oxford Princeton Program, a private energy training company, said prices could move toward European price levels of $10.

“When those natural gas prices start going up again, we will feel it in the way of higher electricity prices,” warns James Sweeney, a Stanford University energy expert.

The loss of coal is being exacerbated by problems at the nation’s nuclear plants. Five reactors have been taken out of operation in the last few years, mainly due to technical problems. Additional shutdowns are under consideration.

At the same time, 30 states have mandates for renewable energy that will require the use of more expensive wind and solar energy. Since those sources depend on the weather, they require backup generation — a hidden factor that can add significantly to the overall cost to consumers.

Nowhere are the forces more in play than in California, which has the nation’s most aggressive mandate for renewable power. Major utilities must obtain 33% of their power from renewable sources by 2020, not counting low-cost hydropower from giant dams in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

In some cases, the renewable power costs as much as twice the price of electricity from new gas-fired power plants. Newer facilities are more competitive and improved technology should hold down future electricity prices, said former FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff, now a San Francisco attorney.

But San Francisco-based Energy + Environmental Economics, a respected consultant, has projected that the cost of California’s electricity is likely to increase 47% over the next 16 years, adjusted for inflation, in part because of the renewable power mandate and heavy investments in transmission lines.

The mandate is just one market force. California has all but phased out coal-generated electricity. The state lost the output of San Onofre’s two nuclear reactors and is facing the shutdown of 19 gas-fired power plants along the coast because of new state-imposed ocean water rules by 2020.

“Our rates are increasing because of all of these changes that are occurring and will continue to occur as far out as we can see,” said Phil Leiber, chief financial officer of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. “Renewable power has merit, but unfortunately it is more costly and is one of the drivers of our rates.”

“While renewables are coming down in cost, they are still more expensive,” said Russell Garwacki, manager of pricing design and research at Southern California Edison. The company is imposing a 10% price hike this year to catch up with increased costs in the past.

Officials at the California Public Utilities Commission, responsible for setting utility rates, dispute predictions of large-scale electricity price hikes in the near future. Edward Randolph, head of the PUC’s energy division, said price increases were not likely to exceed the rate of inflation, though the commission has refused to spell out the data on which it bases its projections. In any case, while California already has some of the highest hourly rates for electricity in the nation, the average consumer in the state pays bills that are below the national average because overall electricity use is so low.

The push to wean California off fossil fuels for electricity could cause a consumer backlash as the price for doing so becomes increasingly apparent, warns Alex Leupp, an executive with the Northern California Power Agency, a nonprofit that generates low-cost power for 15 agencies across the state. The nonprofit was formed decades ago during a rebellion against the PUC and the high prices that resulted from its regulations.

“If power gets too expensive, there will be a revolt,” Leupp said. “If the state pushes too fast on renewables before the technology is viable, it could set back the environmental goals we all believe in at the end of the day.”,0,6329274.story#ixzz30Cs9hCJQ

Will there be a revolt?  Probably not.  We live in times that are even MORE dishonest than Hitler’s and Stalin’s because our leaders are advantaged with the latest skills in mass media manipulation and our media outlets are more propagandistic than Joseph Goebbels or TASS ever was.  Democrats – liars to the cores of their beings – will simply find their equivalent of “Jews” (Republicans, energy companies, insurance companies, rich people, etc.) to slander.  Bad people invariably believe lies – and we have become a bad people.

Obama declared war on coal, and with the aid of the stupid American people who frankly deserve to freeze in the dark, coal was forced to surrender.

We won’t get these assets back for YEARS if we can get them back at all, ye stupid dumbasses.  Even if you vote Republican, the investors who would bring cheap, efficient coal back on line now know that we’re only one election away from a fascist who will bankrupt them.  They won’t DARE invest in coal again: because the moral idiot American people elected and then re-elected a fascist and they know that it can happen again (and may in 2016 in the pantsuited form of Hillary Clinton).

So you CAN count on the fact that Barack Hussein Obama has permanently caused American energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket.”  Amazingly, he did so in a country that has more coal than any other nation on the face of the earth.

In terms of energy and in terms of so many other things, Obama made the richest nation in the history of the world IMPOVERISHED.

And not only that, but the integrity of our grid is now in open question: having abolished coal, with NOTHING to take its place in terms of either price OR supply, we don’t have enough power to provide so we’re going to have more crashes and more devastating crashes in our electrical grid.

And who is going to suffer the most from this moral idiocy?  The rich?  They’ll buy themselves generators.  And even steep increases will hardly dent the percentage of income they dedicate to their heating and cooling bills.

You stupid liberals.  Here is another example of how you afflicted the poor who will now – thanks to the Democrat Party – have to pay unprecedented percentages of their meager household incomes on their energy because you made their rates soar.

And the only other thing you can count upon in God damn America as Democrats wage economic warfare on the poorest among us is that those very poor are ignorant enough and depraved enough to keep believing the lies of the Democrats who are most oppressing them.

Following Obama Into Hell: California Leads The Nation In Taxing Both Its Citizens And Itself Into Mediocrity

April 18, 2013

Liberalism and the Democrat Party that stands for secular progressive liberalism NEVER fails to deliver failure; just as they never fail to deliver on demagoguery to blame others for their failure.

That has been the one constant thing about Obama’s God damn America that his spiritual mentor and “reverend” prophesied.

Want stifling regulations?  Vote Democrat.  ObamaCare was a cancer surgically inserted into the bowels of America’s health care system.  It was designed to kill that system and leave nothing behind but socialism.  In terms of regulations, the 2,700 pages of “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it” ObamaCare have so far equalled more than 20,000 pages of sweeping new regulations US News & World Report told us that just six pages of ObamaCare equaled 429 pages of regulations.

And it’s supposed to be some kind of mystery that Senator Max Baucus – one of the top Democrat Senators who created this monster in the first place – is now warning that the unmitigated disaster of ObamaCare is going to be a train wreck if there ever was one.

But don’t worry, liberals.  Because Democrats – the most dishonest and hypocritical people in the entire history of the world – are already hard at work blaming Republicans for the abject failure of ObamaCare.

Obama’s regulations have been a nightmare that have added up to well over $2 trillion in hidden taxes.  And small businesses have been driven OUT of business trying to comply with the burdens Obama keeps piling on their backs.

Our economy is in a shambles.  This is THE worst “recovery” in history under Obama.  The man who looked a nation in the eye and deceitfully claimed that his stimulus would create millions of “shovel-ready jobs” – only later to joke that  “Shovel-ready was not as … uh .. shovel-ready as we expected” –  later acknowledged in spite of his lies that there never WERE any shovel-ready jobs to begin with.

It didn’t matter.  America is like Nazi Germany now.  It doesn’t matter how many lies our Führer tells us; we still want to worship him so badly it hurts (literally!).  And so as big of a big lie as “shovel-ready” was, it was a huge buzzword for him that struck political gold.  He never had to answer for his lies because he kept shifting the blame for his promises and demagoguing somebody else.  And the liberal mainstream media eagerly participated in the lie to cover up for Obama’s past lies.

The fact of the matter is that Obama’s “American Reinvestment and Recovery Act” aka “the Stimulus” actually RAISED the unemployment rate.  The stimulus was a failure that cost America not a mere $862 billion but actually more like $3.27 TRILLION.  But after so many trillions of dollars pissed away from America’s grandchildren, who is even counting?  Or as Hillary Clinton said – in dismissing yet another Obama scandal and debacle – “what difference at this point does it make?

And the answer, of course, is none at all.  Truth is irrelevant and facts don’t matter in God damn America.  That’s why we’re going to go down harder than any nation in history has EVER gone down.

I am reminded of the similarity between Obama and FDR that liberals themselves made in Newseek Magazine when Obama took office.  I am reminded that FDR prolonged the Great Depression by seven miserable years with all of his liberal social re-engineering and his massive government takeover of the economy.  And I am reminded that FDR was an evil man who is burning in hell right now.

Just like Obama will be.  And just like California arguably already IS (and see here).

Look over this list of taxes that secular humanist government worshipers have inflicted on the residents of California.  See how many of them are going to hit the little guy – unless little guys don’t buy cars and never buy gasoline to put in those cars – and then think of Obama promising that your taxes wouldn’t go up one DIME only to lie to you like the liar he is.

Soaking California taxpayers, again 
For the politicians in Sacramento, there can never be enough revenue or regulation.

California to raise gas tax

Gas prices are displayed as a motorcyclist pumps gas into his motorcycle at a Chevron gas station San Francisco. The California Board of Equalization recently voted to implement a statewide excise tax on gasoline starting July 1 that will increase the tax by 3.5 cents to 39.5 cents per gallon. (Justin Sullivan / Getty Images / March 1, 2013)

Now that they have filed their income tax returns and written their checks, many Californians are starting to realize that government greed is no laughing matter.

In November, California voters approved Proposition 30, raising the state’s top income tax rate to 13.3%, an increase of more than 29%. The state sales tax now ranges from 7.5% to 10%, the highest statewide rate in the nation.

The tax increases are supposed to raise an additional $6 billion in revenue. But that’s not enough for California politicians. They want more.

The California State Board of Equalization, for example — a government agency that collects sales, fuel, alcohol, tobacco and “use” taxes — recently approved a 9% increase in the excise tax on gasoline, raising it to 39.5 cents a gallon effective July 1. That’s a large increase in a state where businesses and workers depend heavily on their cars and gas prices already average more than $4 a gallon.

There’s more coming from the Legislature. Assembly Bill 1002 would raise the $46 basic annual vehicle registration and renewal fee by $6, supposedly to encourage greater use of bicycles, buses and other transportation modes with smaller carbon footprints than cars.

Senate Bill 700 would require Californians to pay 5 cents for every paper and plastic shopping bag they get at the store, supposedly to raise money for cities and parks.

SB 622 would tax consumers a penny an ounce when they purchase bottled tea, sport drinks, energy drinks and other beverages. That would add nearly $1 to the price of a six-pack of 16-ounce sodas. The excuse for this is to fight childhood obesity and dental disease.

SB 391 would impose an additional $75 state fee on top of existing county charges for recording various legal documents in real estate transactions, such as deeds, liens and so forth. This measure will supposedly support affordable housing.

In the war against gun violence, AB 760 would impose a 5 cents a bullet sales tax on ammunition purchases, on top of the existing sales tax. The supposed purpose of this new tax is to fund expanded mental health services.

Under SB 782, bars and restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages and offer adult entertainment, such as exotic dancing, would get slapped with a $10 a person fun tax — or is it a sin tax? These funds supposedly would be used to prevent sexual assault and provide treatment for victims.

California politicians also are intent on making it more expensive and cumbersome to operate businesses in the Golden State, even as the state’s unemployment rate stands at 9.6%, one of the highest in the nation.

SB 254, the Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act, seeks to eliminate the blight of illegally dumped mattresses. It would do so by requiring mattress manufacturers to submit recovery and recycling plans to the state, with the goal of a 75% compliance rate by 2020. The bill would require mattress retailers to pick up the old mattress when they deliver a new one, and would be funded by a “quarterly administrative fee” paid by manufacturers (which, of course, in the real world would undoubtedly be passed on to consumers).

The authors of these proposed measures are unable to predict with any certainty how much revenue they would bring in if they became law. But the proposals make it clear that the hundreds of millions of dollars that California already spends on affordable-housing, mental health and other government programs will never be enough. The politicians will always want more.

Onerous regulations, false promises of fiscal responsibility and the relentless quest for more revenue have become hallmarks of California government.

Lloyd Billingsley is communications counsel for the Independent Institute in Oakland.

People are fleeing California like rats fleeing a sinking ship.  All the highest-taxed states have the worst deficits.  All the lowest-taxed states have the lowest deficits.  But that math is beyond rocket science to liberals for whom reality is irrelevant compared to their glorious Marxist theory.

You literally have to be demon-possessed to believe that you can tax your way into prosperity. But “demon-possessed” is exactly the state America – and the state of the leading state in God damn America – is in right now.

California deserves it.  As does every single American.  You ALL deserve to pay shockingly high taxes to pay for your emperor.  And the poorer you are, the more tax you deserve to pay for your part in this national wickedness in re-electing this wicked man.

What Liberals Now Openly Admitting About The Radical Green Enviornmentalist ‘Gospel’ Ought To Outrage You.

March 5, 2013

Note: The print edition of the Los Angeles Times’ March 4, 2013 AA1 top front-page story posted below was “Spreading California’s green gospel.”  The fact that this is ultimately an issue of religious belief for the left is thus reflected in my title.

I will bold face the part that admits the one thing that liberals despise the most – the truth – for your perusal:

Gov. Jerry Brown works to spread California’s green doctrine
California is a leader on the environment, but it needs other states — and nations — on board to keep down economic costs.
March 03, 2013|By Anthony York, Los Angeles Times

SACRAMENTO — When Gov. Jerry Brown called on his fellow governors at a conference in Washington last week to embrace a California-style pursuit of cleaner air, he was doing more than reinforcing the state’s image as an environmental trailblazer. He was trying to protect its economy.

Brown needs other states and the federal government to adopt key elements of California’s environmental agenda, such as reaping more energy from renewable sources and capping greenhouse gas emissions, if those programs are to be successful here.

The state’s aggressive pursuit of environmental goals has provided a new impetus for green jobs and federal subsidies. But the programs are costly to businesses, raising the price of their energy and forcing them to upgrade to cleaner manufacturing technologies.

If others don’t go green, California could become an outlier, saddling businesses with costly new power while neighboring states continue to use traditional, cheaper energy, experts say. If the efforts under way in California spread to become the new normal, however, all will benefit from economies of scale.

If more states order power companies to limit their use of fossil fuels, for example, the incentive will grow nationwide for firms to develop cheaper alternatives, leaving California consumers less exposed to spikes in electricity rates.

Likewise, if greenhouse gas caps are widely implemented, the state’s landmark climate change law is more likely to be successful. Cleansing the air is “clearly not something California can do on its own,” said Severin Borenstein, director of the University of California Energy Institute.

The authors of California’s emissions law said as much in its text: The ultimate goal is “encouraging other states, the federal government and other countries to act.”

Brown has vowed to keep pushing to “decarbonize the economy.” He wants to advance the state’s mandate for renewable energy — already the most ambitious in the nation — further so California will receive as much as half its power from renewable sources within 20 years. In the courts, his administration is defending a state law, challenged by some oil and ethanol companies, that requires gasoline to contain 10% less carbon by the end of the decade.

In Washington, Brown pushed for others to join in. “We can’t do it alone,” he told state leaders gathered for the National Governors Assn. meeting. “We need other states…. We need China. We need India.”

You see, contrary to what “experts” have really been saying all along, liberals assured us that their “alternative” energy sources weren’t any more expensive than the “traditional” sources of fossil fuel that they despise so much and have tried so hard to literally criminalize.

Green energies are STUPIDLY more expensive than fossil fuels.  Period.  Thank you for pointing out at least one true thing in your paper today.  And wait, they revealed an even bigger truth: they also pointed out that if everybody else in the world doesn’t agree with us that the emperor looks incredible in that brilliant outfit and of course he’s not parading around in his underpants, the entire liberal green energy boondoggle will fail BECAUSE OUR COMPETITORS AREN’T AS STUPID AS OUR LIBERALS ARE.

Californians are paying more for their electricity than anyone in America with the exception of the also-liberally dominated Hawaii and the Northeastern region of the country.  North Dakota – a state that doesn’t criminalize fossil fuels – has residential rates of 7.97 cents per kilowatt hour, as opposed to California’s nearly double 15.3 cents.  It’s not that simple, obviously, given regional phenomena, but that’s an in-your-face fact.

As California dives in to the incredibly inefficient and expensive green energies by criminalizing fossil fuels and tax-funding their green energy boondoggles, our rates our going to skyrocket.  And even MORE actually-born-in-America citizens are going to flee this insanely stupid people’s republic.

Jerry Brown and California Democrats did what Obama is doing to the rest of America: they have bet their economy’s future on green energy.  And either every other state does it so it doesn’t make California’s investment look stupid and evil, or California goes bankrupt.  And as California goes, so goes the nation.

Either the entire world – including China and India which are actually building an average of four coal plants every single DAY in their countries rather than “going green” – goes Obama-stupid green worship – or America goes bankrupt.  Those are your choices now.

Liberals gambled everything on this one – and the facts show that they are going to lose our bet for us.  Obama made a bet, America got bit.  Bit by a poisonous snake that is going to kill us.

It’s amazing.  Even the Europeans who thought of this incredibly stupid green energy garbage in the first place are now beginning to flee this stupidity even as under Obama and Democrats we’re diving into it like no one ever has.  The Europe that embraced this crap is bankrupt because of it and closer to complete fiscal collapse than we are only because we were never this stupid until now.

Spain led Europe in diving into green energy.  It went bankrupt.  And now Spain is one of the most bankrupt nations in the EU.

And that’s the model we’re following.  Seriously.

One of the big reasons that our manufacturing fled to China is because the energy needed to manufacture something is dirt cheap.  They are leading in the manufacturing of all the green energy gizmos that liberals promised would create American jobs because of their energy cost and labor cost and cost of doing business are so much cheaper.  Chinese aren’t “pro-green” in the sense that they’re ever going to require their people to use it; they’re “pro-stupid” in the sense that they will build whatever stupid Americans want so they can take our jobs and our money from us.  If Americans want to bankrupt themselves with idiotic green energy, China will be only too happy to build our suicide machines for us and create more jobs for China in the process.

I mentioned coal and the fact that that’s the energy source that China is using to economically bury us with our own stupidity.

Nearly half – 48.2 percent – of the electricity generated in America came from coal when Obama took office.  And what was it that Obama said would happen to these producers of half of the nation’s electricity?  He promised to bankrupt them.

Please understand, we voted for our suicide.  Either we knew what we were doing and willingly chose suicide in voting for Obama, or we were so stupid that we proved ourselves unfit to survive by any Darwinian standard and voted for suicide by proxy.  But we voted for national suicide in 2008 and we confirmed that decision in 2012.

It doesn’t matter that coal is an incredibly cheap and efficient power source.  It doesn’t matter if America has more coal by far and away than any other nation on earth.  It doesn’t matter if bankrupting coal production is a synonym for bankrupting America.  We’re going to bankrupt coal producers and we’re going to bait and switch America to our green energy.

It is a truly amazing fact that three of your very most important elements to businesses – the cost of energy, the cost of labor, the cost of complying with government corruption and regulation – are THE most important things any employer bases business decisions on.  Liberals make all three plus many other costs of doing business MASSIVELY more expensive.  And then liberals are constantly shocked and appalled that businesses would respond to the middle finger that Democrats just gave them by taking their operations somewhere else.

So now you understand, as even acknowledged by liberalism: either the whole world decides to quit using cheap, abundant energy and chooses instead to only use expensive, production-intensive green energy boondoggles, or else America is going to go broke on the bet just as Europe went broke on pretty much the same bet.

But don’t worry about it, liberals.  The one thing you slandering liars know how to do is blame other people for your disasters.  You’ll get away with it again just like you got away with it in 2008.

Because the beast is coming.  And evil must blossom like a corpse flower to make straight in the wilderness a highway for their god.

You secular humanist liberals will be able to take his mark soon.

Mike Kelly Speech: The Cost Of Obama Is The Cost Of Red Tape Is The Cost Of A $1.75 Trillion Boot On The Throat Of American Businesses

August 4, 2012

Rep. Mike Kelly (Republican from Pennsylvania) got a standing ovation and cheers of USA! USA to this short speech:

You can see the video of this speech here.

What’s the cost of red tape?  Obama adds “layer after layer after layer of costs” to American businesses which get passed on to American consumers and kill jobs and economic growth.

Obama is a liar who claims he has cut the taxes of most Americans.  Excuse my language, but that is BULLSHIT and ObamaCare ALONE proves it’s bullshit.  But consider that even the enormous taxation on the middle class of ObamaCare is NOTHING compared to the taxes this failed president has imposed on the American people.  In fact the government regulation that Obama champions have created a $1.75 TRILLION cost to Americans – which is more than TWICE the amount of all the federal income taxes that the US government collects.

Youtube link:

Is regulation a hidden tax on all Americans?

The costs of regulation are inevitably passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices and limited product choices. Basic items, such as toilets, showerheads, light bulbs, mattresses, washing machines, dryers, cars, ovens, refrigerators, television sets, and bicycles all cost significantly more because of government decrees on energy use, product labeling, and performance standards that go well beyond safety—as well as hundreds of millions of hours of testing and paperwork to document compliance.

The annual cost of regulation—$1.75 trillion by one frequently cited estimate—represents twice the amount of individual income taxes collected last year. Overall, from the beginning of the Obama Administration to mid-fiscal year (FY) 2011, regulators have imposed $38 billion in new costs on the American people, more than any comparable period on record. Consider Washington’s red tape to be a hidden tax.

Obama isn’t the first president who ever regulated anything, but his policies have created FAR more regulations and FAR more bureaucracies than any other American president in history.

59% of business owners understand that Barack Obama is a clear and present threat to them and to your job – if you even have one under this failed president and his failed policies.  And 200,000 businesses have folded since Obama got elected.  But Obama and Democrats just keep piling on and on and on ad nauseum.

Fools (Proverbs 26:11) and wicked people (Proverbs 11:5, 16:4) sow the seeds that create their own destruction.  That’s pretty much all your Democrats in those two categories.

JP Morgan And MF Global Prove That Democrat Regulations DON’T WORK. Democrats Create Disasters And Then Run By Demagoguing Those Disasters.

May 14, 2012

Democrats are saying that 2,320 pages of regulations wasn’t anywhere NEAR enough.  They say they need total dictatorial control over the economy in order to adequately regulate it.

Notice that both Christopher Dodd and Barney Frank (as in, “the Dodd-Frank Act”) are both GONE now???

And yet the monster they created lives on.

Many rules are STILL BEING WRITTEN.  That 2,320 pages will grow and grow and grow without end.

An article written a couple of days ago underscores this and a few other salient facts:

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the most sweeping financial law enacted since the Great Depression, is supposed to protect investors and shield the economy from bubbles and speculation. Its promise is hard to judge; many detailed rules are still being drafted. What can be said with confidence is that Dodd-Frank has been a boon for lobbyists.

In that single sentence, we find: 1) Dodd-Frank was a complete lie and resulted in a complete fiasco; 2) the damn thing that is already a monster is growing into an even bigger monster all around us; and 3) Obama and Democrats LOVE lobbyists in spite of their sanctimonious self-righteous hypocritical denials.

We’ve just suffered the disaster of MF Global in which an EXTREMELY CLOSE ALLY AND PARTNER WITH THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION directly led to the collapse and bankruptcy of MF Global and the disappearance of $1.6 BILLION in investor funds.

We’ve just suffered the disaster of JP Morgan – which donated HUGE campaign money to Obama, for the record (see here and here for the proof) – just lost $2 billion.  With those losses reasonably expected to exceed $4.2 BILLION.

Now, speaking of what is “reasonable,” it is “reasonable” to point out that the Democrat rhetoric demonizing George Bush for failing to regulate, etc. was a complete load of hogwash and that the Democrats’ have refuted themselves.  But that’s not the way the Democrat fascist mind works: rather, Democrats are actually arguing that their abject failure to regulate in spite of supermassive regulations requires more and MORE regulation.

There’s just no end to their stupidity.  Or to their crony-capitalist fascism.

Democrats promised that they would end “too big to fail” by preventing the movement toward getting bigger.  They accomplished the EXACT OPPOSITE: Banks are now THIRTY PERCENT BIGGER than when Dodd-Frank passed and they are in fact bigger as a direct consequence of Dodd-Frank as banks responded to the witch hunts by growing big and powerful enough to resist said witch hunts:

Two years after President Barack Obama vowed to eliminate the danger of financial institutions becoming “too big to fail,” the nation’s largest banks are bigger than they were before the credit crisis.

Five banks – JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., Wells Fargo & Co., and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. — held $8.5 trillion in assets at the end of 2011, equal to 56 percent of the U.S. economy, according to the Federal Reserve.

Five years earlier, before the financial crisis, the largest banks’ assets amounted to 43 percent of U.S. output. The Big Five today are about twice as large as they were a decade ago relative to the economy, sparking concern that trouble at a major bank would rock the financial system and force the government to step in as it did during the 2008 crunch.

“Market participants believe that nothing has changed, that too-big-to-fail is fully intact,” said Gary Stern, former president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

That specter is eroding faith in Obama’s pledge that taxpayer-funded bailouts are a thing of the past. It is also exposing him to criticism from Federal Reserve officials, Republicans and Occupy Wall Street supporters, who see the concentration of bank power as a threat to economic stability.

Let’s compare that list to the list of the biggest Obama donors:

Goldman Sachs, check.  Citigroup, check.  Bank of America, check.  And JP Morgan Chase, check check.  Oh, and Wells Fargo, check.

It’s really just astonishing to anybody but someone like me – WHO SAYS ALL THE DAMN TIME THAT BARACK OBAMA IS A GENUINELY EVIL MAN – that Obama rammed a fascist crony capitalist takeover of the banking system through Congress promising to end too big to fail, and yet somehow mysteriously that legislation ended up benefitting the very list of banks that gave Obama more money than ANYBODY.


There’s kind of a trend there.

When a political party promises to regulate and reform to prevent collapses and bubbles and end the too big to fail mindset, and then they do the VERY OPPOSITE thing that they said they’d do, and as a result of their doing the very opposite thing that they promised they say they need more power, and you believe them and vote for them, there is something profoundly wrong with you.

Demon-possessed Democrats (“Democrat” actually stands for “Demonic Bureaucrat,” by the way) played this game once in 2008.

It was DEMOCRATS and DEMOCRAT POLICIES that blew up our economy in 2008.  Bill Clinton radically expanded the housing-bubble-creating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by dramatically expanding the program that gave housing mortgages to people who could not afford them:

Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending
Published: September 30, 1999

In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.

The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets — including the New York metropolitan region — will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring.

Fannie Mae, the nation’s biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.

For the factual record, that was something Bill Clinton blessed George Bush with just before he left office to go along with the Dotcom bubble collapse recession that wiped out 78% of the Nasdaq portfolio, and in fact vaporized more than 7.1 TRILLION DOLLARS in American wealth.  Which collapsed on Bush just before the 9/11 disaster that happened because Bill Clinton let in every single terrorist who attacked us and allowed them to get trained, organized and funded completely on his watch.  So thanks for those land mines that were guaranteed to blow up, Slick Willie.

Wicked, depraved, demon-possessed Democrats blame George Bush.  But George Bush tried SEVENTEEN TIMES to reform and regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac but Democrats thwarted him every single time.  From US News and World Report:

Seventeen. That’s how many times, according to this White House statement (hat tip Gateway Pundit), that the Bush administration has called for tighter regulation of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

I’ve written about this ad nauseum:

For the record, “8,000 billion” is another way of saying $8 TRILLION DOLLARS. That’s what Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Democrat Party have cost us.

It was Democrats who established Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It has been Democrats who have controlled the staffing of both agencies for decades. It was Democrats – and particularly it was Barack Obama – who took more campaign money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac than ANYONE. It was Democrats who refused to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when George Bush and later John McCain repeatedly pleaded for such regulation and reform of the out-of-control agencies. It was Democrats like Franklin Raines who were running Fannie and Freddie when all the policies that led us down the road to hell were imposed, just as it was Democrats who were running Fannie and Freddie when the fecal matter started hitting the rotary oscillator.

It was a Democrat who said that everything was fine with Fannie and Freddie less than TWO MONTHS before they completely collapsed:

REP. BARNEY FRANK, D-MASS, July 14, 2008: I think this is a case where Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, that they are not in danger of going under. They’re not the best investments these days from the long-term standpoint going back. I think they are in good shape going forward.

And I think that anybody who respects what you think is a deluded and deranged dumbass, Mr. Frank.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now in control of 96.5% of all mortgages, for those who don’t think they’re all that important in their role of creating the mortgage meltdown. It was Fannie and Freddie that bundled all the bad mortgages into mortgage-backed securities and then sold the mortgage-backed and debt securities to domestic and international capital investors under the illusion that they were guaranteed by the federal government.

Fannie and Freddie were a $5 trillion wasted boondoggle BEFORE things got even worse. They exist only to help liberals and lose money. And there’s no end in sight.

How bad is it???

Just how bad is the news at Fannie/Freddie? On Friday morning, Moody’s downgraded their outstanding preferred stock 5 notches from A1 to Baa3 (a slight gradation above junk) and their Bank Financial Strength Ratings (BSFR) to D+ from B- (one/half notch above D, which is reserved for companies in default). […]

I’ve pointed out which entity was directly behind the collapse of our economy in 2008.  Look who see who failed first and then triggered the catastrophic chain of financial destruction:

But in short, just take a look at the following timeline of our 2008 collapse and see which (Democrat) entity led the nation into implosion:

  • September 7: Federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which at that point owned or guaranteed about half of the U.S.’s $12 trillion mortgage market, effectively nationalizing them. This causes panic because almost every home mortgage lender and Wall Street bank relied on them to facilitate the mortgage market and investors worldwide owned $5.2 trillion of debt securities backed by them.[199][200]
  • September 14: Merrill Lynch is sold to Bank of America amidst fears of a liquidity crisis and Lehman Brothers collapse[201]
  • September 15: Lehman Brothers files for bankruptcy protection[202]
  • September 16: Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s downgrade ratings on AIG‘s credit on concerns over continuing losses to mortgage-backed securities, sending the company into fears of insolvency.[203][204] In addition, the Reserve Primary Fund “breaks the buck” leading to a run on the money market funds. Over $140 billion is withdrawn vs. $7 billion the week prior. This leads to problems for the commercial paper market, a key source of funding for corporations, which suddenly could not get funds or had to pay much higher interest rates.[205]
  • September 17: The US Federal Reserve lends $85 billion to American International Group (AIG)to avoid bankruptcy.
  • September 18: Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke meet with key legislators to propose a $700 billion emergency bailout through the purchase of toxic assets. Bernanke tells them: “If we don’t do this, we may not have an economy on Monday.”[206]
  • September 19: Paulson financial rescue plan is unveiled after a volatile week in stock and debt markets.

And I point out the whole process and how it happened to show why the 2008 disaster happened to prove that Fannie and Freddie failing first was no mere coincidence, but in fact the trigger that set off the entire chain reaction of 2008:

In a nutshell, Fannie and Freddie, acting as Government sponsored enterprises, bought tens of millions of mortgages, and then repackaged them into huge mortgage-backed securities that giant private entities such as Bear Stearns, AIG and Lehman Brothers purchased. What made these securities particularly attractive to the private banking entities was that these securities were essentially being sold – and had the backing – of the United States government.

Here’s the process:

The Role of the GSEs is to provide liquidity and stability to the U.S. housing and mortgage markets. Step 1 Banks lend money to Households to purchase and refinance home mortgages Step 2 The GSEs purchase these mortgage from the banks Step 3 GSEs bundle the mortgages into mortgage-backed securities Step 4 GSEs sell mortgage-backed and debt securities to domestic and international capital investors Step 5 Investors pay GSEs for purchase of debt and securities Step 6 GSEs return funds to banks to lend out again for the issuance of new mortgage loans.

Now, an intelligent observer would note a conflict: the GSE’s role was to “provide stability,” and yet they were taking on “significantly more risk” in the final year of the Clinton presidency. What’s wrong with this picture?

The GSEs Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were designed to bundle up the mortgages into mortgage backed securities and then sell them to the private market.

Fannie Mae is exempt from SEC [Securities and Exchange Commission] regulation. Which screams why Bush wanted to regulate them. This allowed Fannie Mae to bundle up mortgages, which were then rated AAA with no requirement to make clear what is in the bundle. Which screams why Bush wanted to regulate them.

This is what has allowed toxic instruments that have been sold across the world. It also created a situation where money institutions did not know and could not find out whether potential inter-bank business partners were holding these “boiled babies on their books, complete with a golden stamp on the wrapping,” rather than safe instruments. This then inclined banks to a natural caution, to be wary of lending good money to other banks against these ‘assets’. And thus banks refused to lend to one another.

John McCain wrote a letter in 2006 urging reform and regulation of the GSEs. He said:

Congress chartered Fannie and Freddie to provide access to home financing by maintaining liquidity in the secondary mortgage market. Today, almost half of all mortgages in the U.S. are owned or guaranteed by these GSEs. They are mammoth financial institutions with almost $1.5 Trillion of debt outstanding between them. With the fiscal challenges facing us today (deficits, entitlements, pensions and flood insurance), Congress must ask itself who would actually pay this debt if Fannie or Freddie could not?

And of course, they could not pay their debts. Fannie and Freddie basically went bankrupt and were taken over. And they took a whopping share of the biggest financial institutions down with them. Fannie is in the process of devouring nearly 400 billion dollars of bailout money from the American taxpayer. And now – GREAT GOOGLEY MOOGLEYObama is planning to funnel yet another $800 BILLION through the same Fannie and Freddie who already destroyed us once.

And thus you had a financial disaster created by one William Jefferson Clinton and one Democrat Party. And now a second act of economic destruction is being planned by Barack Obama.

The 2008 economic collapse that Democrats were elected to fix was itself created by Democrats who will now continue the very policies that created the disaster in the first place.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now in control of 96.5% of all mortgages due to the corruption and fascist crony capitalism of the Democrat Party which has pretty much been allowed to run amok since 2007 (when they took control of the House and Senate) and which went completely insane when Barack Obama became president.

It was Democrats who blew up the economy with their stupid and demonic policies and it is Democrats who will make the rubble bounce by blowing it up all over again in a collapse that will make the Great Depression look like a walk on a warm sunny beach.

As a postscript, allow me to add that the problem is not and never has been that we don’t have enough regulations: we’ve got hundreds and hundreds of thousands of regulations such that the federal government has no idea how many different regulations they actually have on the books any more.  NO!  Rather the problem is that morality and ethics have disintegrated in America.

Founding father John Adams famously said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  His point was that a free society cannot exist unless morality and religion are cherished and taught for a very good reason: because people who do not have the foundation to self-govern must be forcibly governed by an increasingly totalitarian state.  And that view of John Adams was echoed by every single one of our founding fathers for very good reason.

The Democrat Party and the unjust judges the Democrat Party has imposed on us threw God out of America in in 1947 when they imposed a radical understanding of the Establishment Clause upon America.  In a particularly heinous maneuver, the Supreme Court ONLY considered the phrase “a wall of separation between church and state” from a private letter written by Thomas Jefferson to a church that had written expressing concern about the removal of religious liberty.  It’s not adequate to say that the Supreme Court took “separation between church and state” in 1947; they DEMANDED that the surrounding context be DENIED altogetherThe result in 1947 was an awful ruling that defied the previous 160 years of Supreme Court decisions and effectively abrogated the Declaration of Independence and the 1st Amendment in doing so.  The Supreme Court further acted on the secular humanist edifice it had artificially constructed for itself in 1962, when the Court threw out prayer in schools and threw the Ten Commandments out in 1980.  The liberal court decreed that:

“If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments. However desirable this might be as a matter of private devotion, it is not a permissible state objective under the Establishment Clause.”

God forbid that children think about God and morality.  Let’s teach them sodomy instead.

And now we have degenerated to the point in which an Obama-appointed federal judge is saying we should just get rid of the first four commandments that mention God.  Because this moral idiot doesn’t comprehend that the first four commandments commanding reverence for the Creator form the moral foundation for the six commands that ethical laws that have formed the basis of Western Civilization that emerged from the Judeo-Christian worldview.

If you are an older American who knew what this nation used to be like, and you wonder what the hell went so terribly wrong, now you should understand why: we threw God out of America; and in so doing we invited Satan in.  Pretty much every nasty thing, from violent crime, to venereal disease, to premarital sex, to single motherhood and abortion, to illiteracy, to suicide, to drug use, to public corruption, HAS EXPLODED.  We’ve become a country that is so overwhelmed with convicted criminals that it is now beyond impossible to keep them incarcerated and we literally have to let them go as worse criminals keep flooding into the system.

When I graduated from university in 1990 as a business major, I did not receive any classroom instruction on business ethics.  One professor pointed out that they had USED to teach ethics in previous years but had as a matter of policy stopped doing so.  And precisely what would have been the foundation of those “ethics” if we’d been allowed to be taught about “ethics”???  What ethics?  WHOSE ethics?  Based on what ethical system?

Not the Bible, that is for damned sure.  Not when the Supreme Court that inhabits a building whose founders and whose betters engraved images of Moses and the Ten Commandments upon them spurns the entire history of this great nation and replaces it with legally-imposed godlessness.

So the abortion society of death worship that Democrats created spirals wildly out of control.  And the amoral and irreligious people now therefore need mountains of regulations as they become more and more and more blatantly depraved and predatory.

And such a people must be controlled with more and more force.

Liberals frequently compare conservatives to some kind of intolerant Taliban; but THEY’RE the Taliban.  They are a radical secular humanist cult that has been increasingly rabidly determined to impose their agenda on this nation for the last 100 years.

U.S. Now Has Highest Corporate Tax Rate IN THE WORLD (But Emperor Obama Says Business Must Render More Unto Him Instead Of Creating Jobs)

April 2, 2012

America is NUMBER ONE!!!  But unfortunately, we’re just number one in anti-competitive taxes, pseudo-scientific obstructionism and costly regulations that all guarantee we’ll never be number one in much else ever again.

Let me take those in order:

No Fooling: U.S. Now Has Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the World
Curtis Dubay
March 30, 2012 at 3:46 pm

This April Fool’s Day, the joke is on all of us. That’s because as of April 1, the U.S. now has the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world.

Our high corporate tax rate has long made the U.S. an uncompetitive place for new investment. This has driven new jobs to other, more competitive nations and meant fewer jobs and lower wages for all Americans.

Other developed nations have been cutting their rates for over 20 years. The U.S. did nothing.

The U.S. was at least able to stay out of the top spot until now, because Japan had also failed to get its corporate tax rate in line with other more competitive nations. But Japan has finally seen the light and reduced its rate as of April 1.

Japan’s rate was 39.5 percent. That was just barely ahead of the U.S. rate of 39.2 percent (this includes the 35 percent federal rate plus the average rate the states add on). Japan’s rate now stands at 36.8 percent after its recent cut.

The U.S. rate is well above the 25 percent average of other developed nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). In fact, the U.S. rate is almost 15 percentage points higher than the OECD average.

This gaping disparity means every other country that we compete with for new investment is better situated to land that new investment and the jobs that come with it, because the after-tax return from that investment promises to be higher in those lower-taxed nations.

Our high rate also makes our businesses prime targets for takeovers by businesses headquartered in foreign countries, because their worldwide profits are no longer subject to the highest-in-the-world U.S. corporate tax rate. Until Congress cuts the rate, more and more iconic U.S. businesses such as Anheuser-Busch (which was bought by its Belgian competitor InBev in 2008) will be bought by their foreign competitors.

To get back in line with international norms, Congress needs to reduce the rate so the combined federal and state rate matches or falls below the OECD average. Some will contend that with deficits north of $1 trillion annually, we simply can’t afford such a large rate reduction. But the actions of the nations we compete with for new investment show that these nations understand that lowering the corporate tax rate is necessary because of the boost to economic growth it provides.

The United Kingdom, for instance, is in as perilous fiscal situation as the U.S. However, the U.K. reduced its rate in 2011 from 28 percent to 26 percent. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne recently announced that the U.K. would further cut its rate to 22 percent by 2014 to increase competitiveness.

Congress needs to cut the corporate tax rate to make the U.S. a more hospitable place for investment. The time for excuses is over. Until it does, every day will be a cruel joke.

An interesting exchange between ABC News anchor Charles Gibson and Barack Obama during a debate shows us where Obama is:

You have however said you would favor an increase in the capital gains tax. As a matter of fact, you said on CNBC, and I quote, “I certainly would not go above what existed under Bill Clinton, which was 28 percent.”
It’s now 15 percent. That’s almost a doubling if you went to 28 percent. But actually Bill Clinton in 1997 signed legislation that dropped the capital gains tax to 20 percent.

MR. GIBSON: And George Bush has taken it down to 15 percent.


MR. GIBSON: And in each instance, when the rate dropped, revenues from the tax increased. The government took in more money. And in the 1980s, when the tax was increased to 28 percent, the revenues went down. So why raise it at all, especially given the fact that 100 million people in this country own stock and would be affected?
SENATOR OBAMA: Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.

You can reward wise practices or you can punish them.  You can reward individual initiative or you can punish it.  Obama is the latter even though the former is far and away the best for society.

Consider the words of Mark Levin as he shreds Obama’s “fairness” meme:

Utopianism also finds a receptive audience among the society’s disenchanted, disaffected, dissatisfied, and maladjusted who are unwilling or unable to assume responsibility for their own real or perceived conditions but instead blame their surroundings, “the system,” and others.  They are lured by the false hope and promises of utopian transformation and the criticisms of the existing society, to which their connection is tentative or nonexistent.  Improving the malcontent’s lot becomes linked to the utopian cause.  Moreover, disparaging and diminishing the successful and accomplished becomes an essential tactic.  No one should be better than anyone else, regardless of the merits or value of his contributions.  By exploiting human frailties, frustrations, jealousies, and inequities, a sense of meaning and self-worth is created in the malcontent’s otherwise unhappy and directionless life.  Simply put, equality in misery – that is, equality of result or conformity – is advanced as a just, fair and virtuous undertaking.  Liberty, therefore, is inherently immoral, expect where it avails equality.

Equality, in this sense, is a form of radical egalitarianism that has long been the subject of grave concern by advocates of liberty.  Tocqueville pointed out that in democracies, the dangers of misapplied equality are not perceived until it is too late.  “The evils that extreme equality may produce are slowly disclosed; they creep gradually into the social frame; they are seen only at intervals; and at the moment at which they become most violent, habit already causes them to be no longer felt.”  Among the leading classical liberal philosophers and free-market economists, Friedrich Hayek wrote, “Equality of the general rules of law and conduct … is the only kind of equality conducive to liberty and the only equality which we can secure without destroying liberty.  Not only has liberty nothing to do with any sort of equality, but it is even bound to produce inequality in many respects.  This is the necessary result and part of the justification of individual liberty: if the result of individual liberty did not demonstrate that some manners of living are more successful than others, much of the case for it would vanish.”  Thus, while radical egalitarianism encompasses economic equality, it more broadly involves prostrating the individual.

Equality, as understood by the American Founders, is the natural right of every individual to live freely under self-government, to acquire and retain the property he creates through his own labor, and to be treated impartially before a just law.  Moreover, equality should not be confused with perfection, for man is also imperfect, making his application of equality, even in the most just society, imperfect.  Otherwise, inequality is the natural state of man in the sense that each individual is born unique in all his human characteristics.  Therefore, equality and inequality, properly comprehended, are both engines of liberty (Mark Levin, Ameritopia, pp. 7-9).

Levin proceeds in the following paragraphs to demonstrate why “equality” is inherently easier to demagogue than “liberty.”  He then points out – in words that obviously could be applied to ObamaCare:

Utopianism’s authority also knows no definable limits.  How could it?  If they exist, what are they?  Radical egalitarianism or the perfectibility of mankind is an ongoing process of individual and societal transformation that must cast off the limits of history, tradition, and experience for that which is said to be necessary, novel, progressive, and inevitable.  Ironically, inconvenient facts and evidence must be rejected or manipulated, as must the very nature of man, for utopianism is a fantasy that evolves into a dogmatic cause, which in turn manifests a holy truth for a false religion.  There is little or not tolerance for the individual’s deviation from orthodoxy lest it threaten the survival of the enterprise (Ibid., p. 10).

Obama isn’t just pushing for more and more taxes to punish more and more job creators to guarantee that there will be fewer and fewer jobs; he’s also targeting the oil that lubricates the entire American economy and way of life:

Yesterday the Obama administration announced a delaying tactic which will put off the possibility of new offshore oil drilling on the Atlantic coast for at least five years:

The announcement by the Interior Department sets into motion what will be at least a five year environmental survey to determine whether and where oil production might occur.

Obama has a documented history of performing endless “studies” and then perverting those studies in profoundly unscientific ways:

Academics, environmentalists and federal investigators have accused the administration since the April spill of downplaying scientific findings, misrepresenting data and most recently misconstruing the opinions of experts it solicited.


The latest complaint from scientists comes in a report by the Interior Department’s inspector general, which concluded that the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the administration’s six-month ban on new deep-water drilling. The AP obtained the report early Wednesday.

And Obama has used frankly Stalinist tactics to then pressure the experts to fabricate their numbers in his political favor:

The Obama administration pressured analysts to change an environmental review to reflect fewer job losses from a proposed regulation, the contractors who worked on the review testified Friday.

The dispute revolves around proposed changes to a rule regulating coal mining near streams and other waterways. The experts contracted to analyze the impact of the rule initially found that it would cost 7,000 coal jobs.

But the contractors claim they were subsequently pressured to not only keep the findings under wraps but “revisit” the study in order to show less of an impact on jobs.

Steve Gardner, president of Kentucky consulting firm ECSI, claimed that after the project team refused to “soften” the numbers, the firms working on the study were told the contract would not be renewed. ECSI was a subcontractor on the project.

The government “‘suggested’ that the … members revisit the production impacts and associated job loss numbers, with different assumptions that obviously would then lead to a lesser impact,” Gardner testified before a House Natural Resources subcommittee. “The … team unanimously refused to use a ‘fabricated’ baseline scenario to soften the production loss numbers.”

So when Obama says he’s going to do a study, what he means is that he’s going to delay and stall and finally use manipulation and pressure-tactics and deception to fabricate a bogus “legitimacy” for his ideology and his cronyism.

To add to the injury Obama is doing to the economy there is the “hidden tax” of regulation:

A new report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) titled “Ten Thousand Commandments” reveals the vast amount of private-sector capital drowned in the sea of government regulations.

The report’s conclusion is mind-boggling.  The cost of complying with federal regulations has hit the $1.7 trillion dollar mark.

That’s trillion, with a T.

To put that number in perspective, it’s larger than the President’s own anticipated 2011 budget deficit of $1.6 trillion.  In fact, the current regulatory burden imposed on businesses across America now amounts to 50% of total government spending in one year alone.

That’s nuts!

But guess what?  We can top it.

As the CEI report underscores, the compliance cost of regulation is larger than all corporate pretax profits in 2008 and dwarfs the estimated 2010 individual income tax receipts by nearly 50%.

That last point is worth repeating:  The cost of abiding by all the government regulations tallies up to $1.7 trillion, which towers over the revenue brought in by all income taxes, in every bracket.

Putting it all together puts America out of business.

85% of Small Businesses Say Obama Economy Is On The Wrong Track. Here’s Why.

January 20, 2012

Obama has devastated the American economy with his vile policies – and so much anxiety with the never-ending demand for more and MORE vile policies in the future – that they are paralyzed with fear that has shut down job creation.

Obamacare Hurting Jobs — And Patients

Yesterday the US Chamber of Commerce released its updated survey of small businesses. The polling data revealed what many Americans already know – that Obamacare is increasing uncertainty and reducing hiring. A whopping 74% of businesses said that Obamacare makes it harder for their firms to hire new workers, and 30% said they are not hiring thanks to Obamacare. The survey is consistent with other reports; analysts at UBS have stated that Obamacare is “arguably the biggest impediment to hiring, particularly hiring of less skilled workers,” and the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta has “frequently heard strong comments to the effect of ‘my company won’t hire a single additional worker until we know what health insurance costs are going to be.’”

Physicians are similarly unenthused about the impact of Obamacare on their practices. As an op-ed in this morning’s USA Today notes, “many doctors are becoming wary of the law at a time when only one in three Americans support it.” The piece cites a recent Deloitte survey of physicians, which found that 83% of physicians believe Obamacare will increase wait times, while only 27% believe the law will reduce costs through efficiency savings.

Speaker Pelosi famously said we had to pass the bill to find out what’s in it. The latest news shows once again how American job creators and American physicians have not liked what they discovered in the massive 2700-page law.

85% of small business owners believe that the economy is under a desperately wrong track under Obama.  Think about that figure.  Think about how many liberals also try their hand at small business; and think about the fact that nearly nine out of every single ten business owners see disaster in everything Obama has touched.

Small business owners largely know that ObamaCare was a massive power-grabbing tax scheme trying to pass itself off as health care reform.  It’s onerous requirements – which are already proving to have been based on outright lies and deception – will continue to stifle job creation as long as it is allowed to remain in effect. 

But it isn’t just ObamaCare; it’s the full weight of ALL of Obama’s policies and style of governance.

Business owners say that they need a forecasting horizon of about five years in order to know what to do with their business plans.  Under Obama, they’re not getting five months, let alone five years.

Obama signed the Bush tax cut extension that – in spite of its short window – could have given businesses a little security about the future.  But then almost immediately after signing the extension he began to demonize it again and call for Marxist-style redistribution of wealth from the people who take all the risks to the people Democrats want to exploit for their votes. 

Will their taxes go up?  Obama has continually beat the tom-tom of class warfare and demonized them and said they have to pay more and more than their “fair share.”  Their taxes will go up this year.  Or next year.  All they know for sure is that as long as Obama continues to be president they have no security and they cannot dare grow.

There has been a constant state of threat that has engendered a siege mentality in the minds of the small business owners who create most of America’s jobs.

The mountain of regulations and restrictions hurts them.  A large business such as a corporation only needs to add another compliance officer; but a small business is devasted.  The owner has to spend more and more of his or her time that he or she should be spending focusing on the business and the customers and workers filling out more and more paper work to demonstrate compliance.

And then there’s the massive costs of all of the Obama regulations – many of which Obama simply rammed down our throats by executive act of tyranny.  Here are some of the facts on that front about the massive hidden tax of Obama’s regulations:

A new report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) titled “Ten Thousand Commandments” reveals the vast amount of private-sector capital drowned in the sea of government regulations.

The report’s conclusion is mind-boggling. The cost of complying with federal regulations has hit the $1.7 trillion dollar mark.

That’s trillion, with a T.

To put that number in perspective, it’s larger than the President’s own anticipated 2011 budget deficit of $1.6 trillion. In fact, the current regulatory burden imposed on businesses across America now amounts to 50% of total government spending in one year alone.

That’s nuts!

But guess what? We can top it.

As the CEI report underscores, the compliance cost of regulation is larger than all corporate pretax profits in 2008 and dwarfs the estimated 2010 individual income tax receipts by nearly 50%.

That last point is worth repeating: The cost of abiding by all the government regulations tallies up to $1.7 trillion, which towers over the revenue brought in by all income taxes, in every bracket.

We can also add that the compliance costs amount to more than $8,000 per American employee, but we’ll have to stop the comparisons there or else this editorial would rival Atlas Shrugged in length—but with statistics. Yikes!

So every time you hear some Democrat bemoan the ill-informed view that America is an underregulated society, tell them to put the above numbers in a pipe and smoke them.

Seriously. America is hamstrung by onerous regulation. That anyone can say otherwise defies belief. CEI notes that the Federal Register, which spells out all the government’s proposed and confirmed regulations, runs practically 25,000 pages—an increase of 26% over the last decade.

And thousands more rules are being proposed each year.

A true “stimulus” to the economy would be to relax much of these regulations and allow entrepreneurs and business owners to spend their capital on expansion and product innovation, rather than conforming to the obligations of some bureaucratic scheme. That’s not to say scrap all federal oversight, but the way things operate now, agencies are encouraged to brainstorm new policies without taking into account how they would negatively impact the economy.

It’s worth noting how the report “Ten Thousand Commandments” explains such perversity:

“Agencies face overwhelming incentives to expand their turf by regulating, even in the absence of demonstrated need, because the only measure of agency productivity—other than growth in their budgets and number of employees—is the number of regulations they produce.”

Regulations are not just burdening and undermining the confidence of our job creators; they are doing the same thing to little children.  To prepare them for a life of statist misery, I guess.

Obama has devastated job creation.  He has personally demonized the people who create jobs and build wealth in the American economy.  He has devastated American energy production – which not only create more jobs but which literally lubricate the gears of our economy.  And instead of allowing Americans to create energy by drilling for our own resources he has banned such activity while “investing” billions of tax dollars into boondoggles such as Solyndra which benefit his campaign donors and his fellow leftist ideologues.

Meanwhile the cost of gasoline – yeah, that stuff we all desperately need – was more expensive under Obama in the year 2011 than it had EVER BEEN IN AMERICAN HISTORY.
