If Bush's policies and tax cuts were so bad and only benefited the wealthy...why are we scampering to extend those very same policies?
The questions & answers are simple..if not rhetorical. It's ideology, selfishness & fear that drives us into the weeds.
It doesn't take an economic genius to realize..the more money one makes and keeps while pursuing the American dream...the more revenue is pumped into the economy.
Why? Because YOU buy more stuff & small business hires more people!
Fiscal year 2007, under President George W. Bush, retains the record for highest-ever annual federal revenues even when the totals are adjusted for inflation. read more on that here.
AND, Bush spent too much!
In 2008, enter an Obamanation..and the economy went speeding toward that fiscal cliff.
Now the 2012 Obama admin tells us the GOP is holding us hostage because they don't want to tax the wealthy. Really, Mr. Obama, really? Here's a simple solution: keep the tax cuts in place and stop the divide & conquer tactics by demonizing the rich.
Stop spending like a 1980's NYC crack whore and allow the American worker & small business operator to retain their hard earned revenue...the federal coffers will be fattened.
Throwing the top 1% under the bus..is simply turning our backs on America one-percent at a time.
Ah...but no worries..our 26-year old kids can still enjoy the ride on our insurance plans and the prescriptions for our Oxys, Roxies, Blues, or whatever else we desire, will continue to flow as we collect disability for a bum shoulder at 35-years of age. Work? Who has time for that? Link arms with OWS dregs and sing kumbaya straight over the proverbial cliff.
Fiscal Cliff. No crap Sherlock!

Today's SC decision highlights the dangerous course this nation is on. Activist judges dictating our way of life in direct contrast to our Constitution. Folks, this is what Newt Gingrich was warning us against! Now, in today's Obamanation we are TAXED simply for exercising our American liberties of not buying a product.
Did you ever imagine being TAXED for doing nothing!?
Well, the out of control SCOTUS has just set a precedent that YOU fellow American can be compelled by the government to bend at its will. All the government has to do in today's Obamanation is say OK, you citizen are hereby TAXED and must buy this product or perform this function or whatever we decide to FORCE upon you.
In the land of the Free, we enjoyed the pursuit of happiness and our Liberty. An American was able to be a beach bum or a top-earning entrepreneur...it used to be, in the old America, your choice!
Today, with apologies to our founders & framers, we have returned to subjugation.
Barack Obama has replaced King George lll and dishonored those that sacrificed in the American Revolutionary War, Barack Obama & his Useful Idiots on the bench has accomplished what al-Qaeda could not do and subjugated the USA...folks welcome to Dhimmitude!
Is there hope? Absolutely, with no thanks to the 2008 electorate. We can still revolt at the voting booths and undo what the lost electorate has done in 2008. We still have that, the ability to vote...our freedoms however are fleeting. And I know you have heard this before, but it must be said again...this presidential election on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 is the most important election of our lifetime, thus far.
We the People must save this Republic! As Benjamin Franklin said after the signing of the Declaration of Independence when question what just occurred, Dr. Franklin replied we were given a Republic....if we can keep it.
Are you ready to keep it? Are you ready to save it? We cannot allow apathy to dictate our response.
As for me, I will stand on the side of Freedom. I beg of you fellow Patriot to join me.

On Saturday, September 17, 2011, our country celebrates its 224th birthday. Constitution Day commemorates the drafting of the U.S. Constitution and the 39 statesmen who signed it that day in 1787. This year, since the anniversary falls on a Saturday, the holiday was observed on Friday, September 16.
As Benjamin Franklin left the Pennsylvania State House after the final meeting of the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787, he was approached by the wife of the mayor of Philadelphia. She was curious as to what the new government would be. Franklin replied, “A republic, madam. If you can keep it.”

Muslim Prayer Protest,Rye Playland,Following Riot
photo credit: Ryan Villareal, the daily greenburgh
The radical group Muslim American Society (MAS) organized a trip to Rye Playland in NY to celebrate a religious holiday known as Id al-Fitr, or the end of Ramadan. MAS expected 3,000 attendees.
MAS has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood group and was founded as that group’s United States Chapter. The Muslim Brotherhood in addition to desiring the introduction of Shariah as the basis of controlling the affairs of state and society is considered the ideological underpinning of almost all modern Sunni-Islamic terror groups.
When discussing Hamas, Al Qaeda and Islamic Jihad, Richard Clarke, the chief counter-terrorism adviser on the U.S. National Security Council under Presidents Clinton and Bush, stated “The common link here is the extremist Muslim Brotherhood- all of these organizations are descendants of the membership and ideology of the Muslim Brothers;”additional reading here.
Back to the Playland, the Muslims became angered that park employees were enforcing the safety rules prohibiting the women from wearing their traditional head coverings known as hijabs on some rides.
Note: not all rides, some rides. Additionally, Parks officials met with MAS organizers prior to the event and “painstakingly” told them about the headgear ban.
In a Lower Hudson Valley online report, the ban was implemented about four years ago to keep hats and other head coverings from landing on tracks and derailing rides. Deputy Parks Commissioner Peter Tartaglia also noted, “It’s a safety issue on rides. If it’s a scarf, you could choke.”
Playland's policies, posted on its website, include: "All items and clothing must be appropriately secured while on a ride; some smaller items can be stored/secured in cargo pockets or waist pouches. Hats must be secured, and jackets/sweaters must be worn properly and not around the waist while on a ride. Some rides do not allow backpacks, purses or head gear of any kind."
In a NY Times report, Ola Salem, 17, of Coney Island, Brooklyn, was visiting with the group to celebrate the Muslim holiday and wasn’t able to go on a ride because of her head scarf. “They said no because of my “head gear,” Ms. Salem said. “I said, It’s not my head gear, it’s my religion.”
Ironically, the religious folks in the park did not see the sin of disrupting, rioting and failing to follow simple safety guidelines. This mindset is familiar with the adherents of Shariah Law and radical groups such as MAS and the Muslim Brotherhood that justify jihad and terror.
Ms. Salem demanded a supervisor and was presented with a list of rides that would require her to remove her scarf. More than a dozen of the park’s rides, she said, were on the list.
It went downhill from there. Tempers flared, MAS members became unruly, violent and even began to fight amongst themselves. Officers were injured, a large police response was required and the park was shut down for regular visitors. Fifteen people were arrested.
It defies logic and basic decency that anyone, especially a ‘religious’ group, would balk over an amusement park attempting to keep riders safe by prohibiting head scarves on rides. The officials at Rye Playland were so reasonable they didn’t implement a park wide policy of such a ban, but according to the one young Muslim lady…the park enforced this rule for only a dozen or so rides and presented a handout naming all the rides.
The officials even told the group’s leaders of the restrictions prior to their arrival!
Ahmed Jamil, who booked the event, said park guests should be allowed to wear what they choose on their heads. “Those machines,” he said, “they should design them to be safe enough.”
Astounding, but not surprising, that adherents of Shariah would demand and expect a Western facility to “design” amusement park machines in a way to prevent hijabs from flying off heads potentially causing a derailment or choking hazard for the wearer of such garb.
In the lohud.com report, a couple of Muslims from Yonkers even had the gall to complain about the tax dollars spent on the police response…the police response to the riot caused by the Muslims.
In a report by The Daily Greenburgh, friends and family of the 12 men and three women who were arrested said they felt law enforcement had used unnecessary force and were disrespectful in how they treated the women.
Again more irony…the adherents of Shariah Law riot over safety rules and a perception of “disrespect for the women,” but not a peep from them when adherents of Shariah engage in the radical subjugation, mutilation and/or Islamic (dis)honor killings of women!
Before it went into riot mode, Rye Playland tried to offer full refunds in an attempt to de-escalate the situation (One can only wonder if an infidel would have been so accommodated). That was their second mistake, when radicals are appeased they are emboldened.
The first mistake was dealing with and negotiating with MAS.

A year ago today, Ron Paul called those against the Ground Zero mosque “Sunshine Patriots.” He also said the opposition to the mosque is “about hate and Islamaphobia.”
Ron Paul reduced American Patriots to hateful bigots while serving as an apologist for those that murdered innocents on our soil. Paul speaks of “Islamaphobia” while ignoring Islamofascism.
In Paul’s statement regarding the Ground Zero mosque debate, Paul didn’t mention the innocent victims slaughtered by the adherents of Shariah Law and when he acknowledged the “small portion of radical, angry Islamists that do want to kill us” Ron Paul doesn’t blame the terrorists; instead he questioned the motives of the terrorists by implying that it is our fault that they are murdering us.
There is no doubt that American foreign policy is rife with failures; historically and currently. It is those failures that make a Ron Paul successful because it is those mistakes that men like him exploit.
Exploiting this nation’s poor foreign policy decisions of the past to justify the actions of our current enemies is not only reckless but it is worse than those very failures that are being exploited, for it only serves to embolden the enemy.
What Ron Paul will not mention is that Islam was waging jihad long before there was a failed American foreign policy, long before there was a Bush or Cheney in the White House, in fact long before an America even existed.
When Mohammed the Prophet was marching through Medina and Mecca and slaughtering and subjugating those that refused to convert to Islam, his jihadists were shouting “Allahu Akbar.” They weren’t shouting, “failed foreign policy.”
If Islamic terror is our fault, than one must completely ignore the writings of the Quran and the words of Muslim clerics across the globe.
When adherents of Shariah Law attempted to bring down our towers in 1993, we rolled over and continued our pattern of appeasement. When they finally took our towers down on 9/11/01 in such a grand scale that it will forever be etched in our minds and hearts, we responded more aggressively.
We can talk about the mismanagement of the subsequent wars, the dangers of the Patriot Act and other failed policies and we will be justified in much of the criticism. What is never justified is giving our enemies a pass to continue their attack upon us because at times we were fools and our attempts were inept or corrupt.
Ron Paul speaks of patriotism and cites the 1st amendment in supporting the erection of the Ground Zero mosque. Paul is often thought of as a champion or scholar of our constitution.
A true champion of the Constitution will protect the same from both foreign and domestic enemies. A scholar of the Constitution will have the capability of understanding that the 1st amendment does not give protection to organizations, religious or otherwise, from usurping the Constitution while endeavoring to conquer us.
Ground Zero in NYC is one of the sites where Islamic jihadists destroyed the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center (WTC) killing thousands of innocents.
From the rubble of the WTC, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, president of the Cordoba Initiative, called for Islamic dawa and Sharia Law on American soil. In fact, the Cordoba Initiative already has a Sharia Project housed within the building where the mega mosque is to be erected.
The original plan of the Cordoba Initiative was to open the doors of its victory mosque on the tenth-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, but the adherents of Shariah law couldn’t raise enough money to do so.
Sunshine Patriots are those that stand for an ideal when it's easy to stand for an ideal. Is that not what Ron Paul is doing regarding the Ground Zero mosque issue?
It is a difficult task, not an easy one, to address a religious organization’s zeal to harm us, especially when that religion has woven its way into the fabric of our traditions and enjoys the protection of our Constitution.
Hopefully, the Ron Paul Patriots will join adherents of our Constitution to help and support those that took an oath to protect our way of life from both foreign and domestic enemies.
"In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot." - Mark Twain.

Usually elections, especially presidential ones, bring out the patriotic fervor in a candidate; usually, but not with the current Campaigner-in-Chief.
As the president’s first term nears an end, the nation watches the beginning of a new presidential campaign and Obama launches a three-state bus tour.
The potus has navigated this country to huge unemployment rates and a depressed economy. The bus he purchased with our tax dollars was made in Canada. The potus also deemed it appropriate to ensure no American flag symbols adorned the bus, instead he opted for a large black Canadian bus…appropriate for a state funeral or rock concert; fitting because the tune Obama sings has killed our economy.
Jay Leno summed it up with late night satire when he quipped, “President Obama is off on his three-state bus tour this week. I believe the three states are Confusion, Delusion and Desperation.”
During the presidential campaign for the 2008 election, candidates and pundits were often frightened of the backlash for openly questioning Barack Obama’s dubious affiliations and lackluster senatorial record. His power tools in the main stream media often cried racism or bigotry when Senator Obama received any scrutiny; whether it was on the issues or lapel-gate, pastor-gate or today’s bus-gate.
No other label, outside of a pedophile, if stuck on the accused would be as demonizing as the R (racist) label.
What about Patriotism? Are we not allowed to question a candidate’s patriotism? A person’s patriotism while endeavoring to lead this great country should be first and foremost.
If a candidate does not have love for his or her country, how can their loyalty be trusted? How can we trust a leader to have allegiance to our nation if that leader harbors resentment or worse for the nation? If a leader does not honor the nation’s symbols of freedom, such as our flag, perhaps we should not honor that leader with our votes.
Many will say, especially the supporters of Barack Obama, that such questions and implications are a distraction from the important issues of the day. All of the important issues will be adversely affected if the president is devoid of patriotism; issues such as the economy, jobs, national security, our borders, immigration, health care, national pride and a host of others.
I’m sure Canada may appreciate Obama’s bus tour, but on American soil the smooth operator drove into a ditch...the same place he drove the economy and job effort.
If a person with nefarious designs endeavors to fundamentally transform America, where is the best place to operate from? The White House will be a great place to start.
So, is there a legitimate Patriotic Card to be played here?
In 2007, during Barack Obama’s first campaign to be leader of the USA he told reporters that he removed his flag pin from his chest shortly after 9/11/2001. Not for fashion reasons…but to protest against our nation & her war effort against Islamic terrorism following the 9/11 attacks on our soil.
When the entire nation rallied together regardless of ideology and purchased American flags for their lapels, cars and homes in a sense of patriotic pride and unity, Senator Obama felt justified in getting rid of a symbol representing the USA.
"I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest"- Barack Obama, Illinois State Senator.
A respectful position for a presidential hopeful would have been to honor the flag, pledge allegiance to the flag and vow to improve our nation’s efforts where improvement may be needed, a patriotic approach to hope & change.
Also in 2007, at a campaign stop in Iowa with other presidential hopefuls, Barack Obama with a large American Flag as the backdrop struck a fig leaf pose during our National Anthem. All the other candidates in accord with the United Sates Code properly & respectfully placed their hands over their hearts.
After the election, President Obama continued this pattern of dishonoring America and her symbols.
In January 2010, Haiti was devastated with a 7.0 magnitude earthquake. The U.S. responded, as per her norm, in a manner that is unrivaled in the world. Washington flew 10,000 troops to Haiti to help with rescue & recovery efforts, repaired the main airport to facilitate additional relief efforts and poured Millions of US dollars into the region.
Petty dictators such as Hugo Chavez claimed America detonated a special weapon that caused the earthquake; others including the prime minister of Haiti didn’t like the site of the American Flag!
Haitian officials however did not mind the site of our checkbooks or our relief ships!
Barack Obama responded not with national pride and honor but agreed with Haiti and ordered the removal of our American flags from all bases of operation. The other countries that set up support bases in Haiti continued to fly their respective flags as a sign of identification and pride.
America, are you awake? Are you still turning a blind eye to Barack Obama’s blatant disrespect for our flag and country? Folks, without Patriotism a president will not drive the country in the right direction.
As Obama's bus tour concludes, the president promises to first go on vacation (again) and then unveil a job plan in September. After three years of high unemployment in America, this president may have missed the bus.

Ron Paul_Congressional image
During these troubled economic times and the Left’s assault upon decent & sane Americans in the Tea Party, as found in the Staten Island Tea Party, hopefully the idea and wonderful work of the “Tea Party” is not hijacked by the Ron Paul camp.
Absent domestic economic policy, Ron Paul cannot share the values of the Tea Party while rejecting adequate protection of the Constitution from Shariah Law and other foreign designs. Paul’s followers undoubtedly include patriotic Americans, but similar to the Obama camp many are also on the extreme fringe.
During economic duress it may be tempting to jump on the Ron Paul band wagon, for his economic savvy resonates very well with conservative fiscal values, but the ignorance of his foreign policy makes a Ron Paul presidency just as dangerous as an Obama presidency...if not worse.
As the Democratic Party was hijacked by the George Soros crowd and other far left radicals and the GOP Party has its fringe extreme, the Tea Party if not careful can be hijacked by the Ron Paul camp and the ‘well meaning’ anarcho-libertarian faction of that Party.
Anarchy should never be confused with a zeal for smaller government. Additionally, exploiting this nation’s poor foreign policy decisions of the past to justify giving our present enemies cart blanche is reckless; it is worse than those failures that are being exploited.
Granted, the Tea Party is not a national political Party, however, the grassroots movement has without question gained notoriety, respect and influence in the political discourse and direction of our nation. The Obama administration exploited the Tea Party’s success by scape-goating the grassroots movement for his failed economic policies.
In order for the tea Party to have and maintain success in rescuing the republic from the failed policies of elected officials, the Tea Party must maintain its credibility and relevance. In order to keep such status, the Tea Party cannot devolve into an isolationist and pro-shariah clan that embraces anarchy.
It runs counter to our Constitution when a leader, and presidential hopeful, fails to protect our sacred document from both foreign and domestic enemies.
What good is Ron Paul’s economic savvy if Shariah law and its adherents are allowed to go unchecked? Dhimmitude and subjugation will be the more benign aspects of a Shariah compliant U.S.
If Ron Paul has his way, an American policy will also embrace a nuclear Iran and an abandonment of Israel.
Is the motivation of a Ron Paul’s dangerous foreign policy stance a mindset that delineates the folly of “A friend (Islamofascists) of my enemy (Israel) is my friend”?
History has taught us the dangers of appeasement. Winston Churchill put it quite succinctly if not eloquently when he said, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
Again, what good is Ron Paul’s economic savvy when he refuses basic protection against foreign radical regimes and desires to abandon important allies, especially allies in our continued fight against terrorism?
Does Paul think that because we were once a free nation that the new foreign tyrants will allow the women of our nation to choose the color of their burqas?
A champion of the Constitution will protect the same from both foreign and domestic enemies. A scholar of the Constitution will have the capability of understanding that the first amendment does not give protection to organizations, religious or otherwise, from usurping the Constitution while endeavoring to conquer the American people.
A Ron Paul’s presidency will give up essential liberty by grossly abandoning temporal security.
Below advertisement post view Mark Levin video and commentary on Ron Paul or click here
Levin says there is no groundswell of support for Ron Paul even though his activists try to create the illusion of support in these straw polls. And he’s not the founder of the Tea Party, as most of the Tea Party wouldn’t even vote for him due to his ideas on foreign policy.
Levin asks why should we care if it’s natural that Iran would want nukes. He says Adolf Hitler would likely have wanted nukes too. I wonder, would Paul have been OK with that?

FORT HOOD- Statesman reports: “The two Fort Hood civilian police officers, Kimberly Munley and Mark Todd, celebrated as heroes for responding first to the 2009 shooting massacre at this Army post were told recently they would lose their jobs as part of broader military budget cuts.”
However, the government has decided not to discharge the gunman responsible for the massacre allowing Maj. Nidal Hasan to retain his full rank, pay and medical treatment.
Lieutenant General Donald Campbell Jr., the Commander of Fort Hood said at a luncheon he hosted for reporters, "The bottom line is when you cut through everything we are as an army, we have to be fair to him regardless of what we saw or we think we saw or whatever the case may be. It's imperative we maintain the integrity of the court martial so he gets as fair a shot as possible defending himself with his team.”In other developments, with seemingly no concern for budget constraints or the hero cops that stopped the jihadist, millions are spent on the base.
The commander said, “Work is well underway on a $500 Million new medical center, three new community based medical clinics have opened recently, and Campbell hopes there will soon be a new post exchange in an area similar to a town hall complex. He said the military is also partnering with KISD on plans for a new athletic stadium for high school football and other sports.” The luncheon report concludes, “A new training center is in the planning, and the Army wants to make sure it has the facilities and programs in place to absorb thousands of soldiers coming back to Texas. They include behavioral health, re-integration training based on need, and taking care of families in the Ft. Hood community so the nation's largest military installation can be prepared for growth.”
Campbell called it a "season of transition on post, with lots of changes coming."It’s a shame that the growth & change does not include the two hero officers. When the government offers hope, growth & change…somehow it only exacerbates an already dysfunctional system.
It highlights a system where political correctness aided and abetted the Forth Hood terror attack in 2009, the same system that now justifies in a sense of “fairness” keeping on the payroll a terrorist, a United States Army Major that in his own words described himself as a ‘Soldier of Allah (SoA).’
Our military deserves the best facilities and services money could buy. All of us should support our military with not only our moral support but with our private funds as well as our tax funds…this support should include maintaining the two civilian police officers that answered the call that fateful day in 2009 and valiantly stopped the Fort Hood massacre that killed 13 and injured much more.
Never forget those lost at the hands of this “SoA.” Let us not abandon the defenders of freedom, civilian or otherwise, that continue to put themselves in harm’s way for our safety and comfort.
