Paying For Free Lunch

Harry Reid thinks the taxpayers who have found a voice in the the form of the Tea Party movement have it all wrong…

What did Milton Friedman say about those that think like Harry Reid?


Let’s Be Clear…

Obama is fond of saying this.

If anything gets much clearer for America under Obama’s leadership, based on how the media will report it, then expect bats to start falling from the night’s sky as they suffer catastrophic mid air collisions in their sonar deprived blindness. We know the lapdogs are just doing what they are told to do as caucus team players, parrot the talking points, but the rest of us can see even they are beginning to squirm more now at the lies and audacity, and feel the need to shower more often.

No real explanation as to why Obama chose to start a new war without any real national interest, not even the ministers of propaganda are able to spin it well.

Maybe we can get a clear explanation on what social engineering did for our housing values? Or maybe, why people like Barney Franks or Chris Dodd are not in prison for their roles in the outright extortion and ponzi schemes they devised and supported resulting in the predictable and subsequent collapse of the mortgage financing sector?

This country has tremendous reserves of untapped energy resources and the technology know-how to safely extract them, and put them to productive use to aid our economic vitality, but what is very clear is that those invested in their own power will not permit this course for our future, not while they hold the reins.

Here is what is crystal clear to the average taxpayer, that there are way too many people playing games with the truth. A trip to the grocery store for life’s necessities is becoming a budget management exercise (that used to be reserved for planning summer vacation spending) as both food and gasoline prices are soaring.

The Democrats own the budget mess.  Any shutdown that is needed due to their reckless spending over the last four years is, and should be, pinned squarely where it belongs, on them! This country only reached a ten trillion dollar deficit in October of 2008 but now we are well past $14 trillion! Granting another raise of the debt ceiling would clearly be an outrage against the consent of the people, so our experience tells us watch out, they will find a deceitful or underhanded way of doing this and the GOP will cave in to it, despite our protests, or the damning long term affects to our posterity.

During campaigns we hear much about trimming wasteful and overlapping programs in our federal government. We know there are tons of them and the waste and fraud and abuse of taxpayers money is rampant.  Now is the time to get down to the work of paring off all this fat, as their carbon footprints on our pocketbooks is far too big.

Both parties could also look at the barriers to their power imposed by the US Constitution that they have so willfully destroyed through overreach, or just ignored for decades, and see that maybe that wasn’t such a hot idea. So many burdensome rules and regulations have been created nobody can know or comply with them all, and the free enterprise racehorse of the past is burdened with an estimate 20% of its own weight by all these, while still being expected to compete globally. While the real issues of our country like national security, energy independence, effective education, crime, moral decline, poverty etc. have not improved, and in fact worsened under central planning, our government takes an ever larger share of the cargo area in our 747 jumbo jet economy while telling us all to shut up, and sit down, and do as we are told.

Failure and incompetence without accountability is business as usual for these people, and they want to tell us how we should live? No way! We can clearly see that their interference is what is clouding our future!

Let us be clear! Let us set the conversation! Those in Washington need the message recited over again and again, they may call us any name they wish, they can blame us for their dead bats too, but we have had it, we are watching them closely in greater numbers than they think, we expect the truth, responsible and accountable government, and clearly we need to continue to let them know it!

Obama as “Leader of the Free World”

The Presidency of the United States had become analogous with the realistic title of the “Leader of the Free World”, that is until now.

With Obama it now reads “Leader of the Free World”,  evidently.

He has shown us this week just what lengths he will go to in avoiding promoting freedom anywhere, as the people of Iran bravely and defiantly attempt to stand up against tyranny, our leader defers,  not wanting to be seen as interfering.

Yet Obama is not doing anything new, he has not really spoken of freedom since he became the president.

I believe it is because he is an anti-freedom ideologue and proves it more every day he has had power.

While searching for speeches on freedom given by Obama, I stumbled upon this article by Christine Smith

Socialist Obama Speaks

From Christine’s list of recommended sites, I found the site Downsize DC which I really like-

This article about the proposed Health Care reforms was especially insightful as the author boils it down into a

simple set of questions we can ask!

Complexity, Simplified

So though the search for speeches given by Obama on freedom proved fruitless,never-the-less I was able to locate a couple of great sites and add them to the links available for you here at Eastsideteaparty!

Women can be outraged now!

This excerpt, and the article itself, is written by a liberal, not a conservative…(somebody on their side gets it)!

I’m really struggling to get my rage under control right now, but I think it’s going to be a losing battle. This man is beyond clueless. Does he have any idea of the daily abuse women are subjected to in Muslim countries? Here is Peter Daou’s reaction to Obama’s mealy mouthed words about women’s rights:

Is that a joke?

With women being stoned, raped, abused, battered, mutilated, and slaughtered on a daily basis across the globe, violence that is so often perpetrated in the name of religion, the most our president can speak about is protecting their right to wear the hijab? I would have been much more heartened if the preponderance of the speech had been about how in the 21st century, we CANNOT tolerate the pervasive abuse of our mothers and sisters and daughters.

Read the article from blog The Confluence ( a Puma Liberal site)

Tyrants agree-‘We love him…but we still hate you’!

Today we heard that in an interview with a French Television Station, our President Obama commented that the United States could be considered “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world”

Besides being factually stupid and wrong, it was another jab at our true Judeo-Christian heritage and traditions we actually still have, and always have had!

I heard him suck up to Canada in the same way, calling them” without a doubt one of the most impressive countries in the world!”.  In fact since we get CBC broadcasts here, we constantly see them using the spot to impress themselves with their own impressiveness!  Sorry Canadians, but he tells everyone that!

I thought this wouldn’t be really too big a news story after the Saudi King bowing  thing, but I was wrong!

Seems that the staunch left wing media has even begun to squirm noticeably.

Obamas latest tour reminds me of an ad jingle from the past. Follow the bouncing ball …,

I’m a Mus-lim!,

You’re a Mus-lim!

Wouldn’t you like to be a Mus-lim——— too? !

Every time this president opens his mouth to speak about foreign relations and Americas role in the world, people lose.

Not only does he treat the American public like a bunch of backward heathens and hicks, he emboldens the worst tyrants in power already and tightens their oppressive grip over the people in those countries.

Remember how we have heard for years about the Iranian Mullahs tenuous grip on power over the Iranian people who were getting close to throwing them out of power?  I wonder how they feel after hearing Obama’s words over the past few days,weeks, and months.

Now we see Obama telling the world the U.S. cannot impose its will on Iran and that they have the right to have nuclear capabilities, and on top of that they are invited to have their diplomats and officials attend our American 4th of July festivities and experience our traditions! (as if they didn’t know a thing about them)

A friend of mine had a much better idea-

Let’s do even better than the White House and State Department on this outreach initiative.

Let’s invite all the Iranian refugees in this country who have fled the tyranny in Iran to live in freedom here to join us at Tea Party protests across America on July 4, and show their opposition to appeasement toward the Iranian zealots.

Likewise, invite all of the Afghan refugees who fled the Soviets, or other immigrants from eastern Europe, and those who fled tyranny in Central or South America or elsewhere in the world.

Include a “We fled Tyranny for Liberty” theme this July 4 – whether they fled political or economic tyranny (corrupt governments, socialism, etc.) or just shared the “American Dream” as individuals who believed that they could create a better future for their families here.

Maybe we can get Obama to stop singing his latest jingle long enough to see what our American experience and traditions represents- for himself!

So here is what our plan should be-

Encourage many immigrants who came here to escape tyranny or other hardships to speak up about their fears about how America is changing now, and the importance of standing up for what we still believe rather than befriending and apologizing to the tyrants and losers of the world.

For those people and the others oppressed peoples of the world, I want to say this:

We are sorry for our Presidents behavior,  although he is expected to speak on behalf of and for all of America, he does not speak for the Americans you were counting on for hope, which is most of us.

We are still here though, and we are fighting to keep your hopes alive,   to preserve and protect an America that the world is counting on,  as an example of freedom and liberty unequaled anywhere else on earth!
