Bi-Partisanship101


Lately I’ve been so frustrated. Forget the bailouts, the deficit, the economy and other major issues that plague us. I’m talking about all the finger-pointing that’s going on. The Republicans blame the Democrats for THIS. The Democrats blame the Republicans for THAT. The Left accuses the Right; the Right accuses the Left. The media omits an important part of a clip to manipulate the story for the benefit of THEIR side. If I hear one more time about inheriting a deficit or how more money has been spent with this administration than with all the presidents combined, I think I’ll spit…and trust me, I despise spitting.


I would like…no…exalt BOTH sides if they would get along and accomplish something! Just ONE thing. Is that so much to ask? Is it so much to request that our Congressmen and women and our Senators come together as a team and solve ONE problem? Resolve a problem WITHOUT acting like a bunch of little kids pushing and shoving on a playground. As it stands, when someone gets a black eye, everyone starts yakking at the same time blaming and pointing fingers at everyone else. It’s just so immature. These people are adults, for crying out loud! I feel, at the very least, I should put every one of them in a time out until they learn to play nice. But what I’d really like to do is give each of them a swat on their rear ends!


My fantasy of punishing those on Capitol Hill will stay a desire until we can obtain vengeance on Election Day. Or I have another proposition. I think the American people are more mature, have better ideas and can be more bipartisan than those in Congress. I would like to pick a topic and have us discuss it in a mature manner. I have faith that we Conservatives and Liberals can come up with some really good ideas and possibly a solution to some of the problems that plague our nation. These solutions may never go anywhere other than this blog; but it may make us feel better. At the very least it will prove to me that there is such a thing as Conservatives and Liberals working together toward a common goal.


Our first topic is going to be Health Care. This, as we all know, is a major concern for Americans and our country. Our debate goal will be to resolve the Health Care conundrum. We definitely NEED Health Care reform. I don’t think there is a person out there that will argue with me on that. I’ll post my ideas in the comment section and I look forward to hearing from all of you.

OTO - Obama Television Overload

I don’t know about anyone else; but I’m suffering from Obama Television Overload. I mean, really, what’s up with his face plastered all over the tube every week? Is it really necessary? I understand his weekly radio addresses and the whole YouTube thing. But enough is enough already. Just last week he was on 60 Minutes AND Jay Leno.

There was nothing new this evening. All I got from tonight’s press conference was repetitive rhetoric that made me yawn. Invest in education, energy and health care. He inherited this financial crisis, blah, blah. If he had said something about having hired a new staff for Geithner, maybe I wouldn’t have been so bored.

The President DOES need to give press conferences, I appreciate that. However, I believe Obama is over doing it. He needs to back off a bit and make more time for the Oval Office. Nevertheless, WHY is he doing so many television appearances?

Is he an ego maniac that enjoys time in the limelight? Does he have some hidden agenda, the more you see him the more you’ll like him? Or maybe it’s something really simple. Obama’s inexperienced; therefore he doesn’t know what to do as a president; so he reads from his teleprompter because that’s his comfort zone.

In my opinion, I think Obama is trying to distract the American people from the AIG mess. By going on 60 Minutes and Jay Leno, then having a press conference not even a week later, he can distract the public from what’s really going on. Or at least he’s HOPING he will distract them. He also has a high approval rating and if he keeps his face on television he may keep that rating up. Kind of like a subliminal message.

I’m curious to hear your opinions. So, please leave comments. As some of you know, we have a few Liberals visiting now. I think this will lead to some interesting debates. Just remember to be respectful to one another.

Obama Administration is full of Cowards

In a speech to the Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Attorney General Eric Holder described the US as a nation of cowards on race relations. He said that most Americans avoided talking about racial issues and that although strides have been made in integrating the workplace, America was still self-segregated on weekends and in their private lives.

Nice statement from the first African-American Attorney General who was appointed by the first African-American President, don’t ya think?

And now another alarming statement from the Justice Department. Except it has to do with Terrorists this time. We aren’t allowed to call them Enemy Combatants anymore.

What are we allowed to call them then? Well, we don’t know. Seems no one in the brilliant Obama Administration knows much of anything. They put the cart before the horse…AGAIN.

The Obama Administration is going to close Guantanamo Bay within a year; however, they have no clue where the detainees are going to go from there. We aren’t allowed to call the terrorists, who want us DEAD, Enemy Combatants anymore; and there’s no announcement from the brilliant Obama team as to what their new title will be.

But rest assured Attorney General Eric Holder is on the case! In his statement to the court outlining Obama’s efforts to close Guantanamo Bay within a year, Holder stated that promptly determining the appropriate disposition of those detained at Guantanamo was a high priority for the president and there could be further refinements as the process continues. Phew! I’m relieved! I’m so glad it’s such a high priority that Obama signed the executive order to close Guantanamo BEFORE he knew where to put the MURDERERS. I’m so relieved to know that the process will be refined as they move along. Maybe these geniuses should’ve REFINED the process BEFORE signing the order.

Then we have Elisa Massimino, Ceo and Executive Director of Human Rights First, who is just thrilled over the news. She tried urging the Bush Administration to use kid gloves on ENEMY COMBATANTS and now states that she’s hopeful this administration will use this opportunity to narrow the authority and make a clean break from the policies from the past. Yes, Elisa, it was so bad during the Bush Administration. We were SAFE from ENEMY COMBATANTS for 7 ½ years. What are you going to do WHEN we are attacked AGAIN? How is it going to be printed in the news?

MEN BLOW UP CITY KILLING THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS.
Yeah, that’s right, we can’t call them terrorists, Muslims, enemy combatants, radical Islamics or anything else that will stereotype or might hurt their feelings or cause discomfort. After all, they only want us D E A D!

These MURDERING ENEMY COMBATANTS don’t deserve human rights, civil rights and definitely not constitutional rights, hence Guantanamo Bay, you moron!

If anyone is cowardly, it’s the Obama Administration. From Janet Napolitano to Eric Holder to organizations like Elisa Massimino’s to Obama himself. This Administration believes Terrorists should have civil, human, constitutional and every other right under the sun. But to hell with the rights of those that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. To hell with the families who mourn those lives every single day. And to hell with the safety of the American people. When America is attacked again, and trust me I’m NOT hoping it is; but I believe it’s inevitable with this incompetent administration. And when it is I think EVERYONE of them should be brought up on treason.

AIG -The 1st to be Nationalized

It was announced Monday that AIG, the insurance giant that was TOO big to fail, needs another 30 billion dollars or it will go under. This will take AIG’s total bailout to 180 billion in taxpayers money since last fall. Why are we still sinking money into this failing company? Isn’t is obvious that this company is in fact NOT too big and has already FAILED and should be allowed to do so? Why are the American people responsible for greed, corruption and the failings of bad decisions of a company who's time is just plain over?

I have my own theory on this AIG bailout. I believe that this Administration WANTS AIG to NEED more and more money so it can continue to bail it out until it becomes 100% owned by the government. Oh, I’ve heard all the arguments that if AIG goes under thousands of jobs will be lost and teachers all over the country will lose their 401k’s. (But never mind the average American’s 401k!) Oh yeah, and the sky is falling again today! To save AIG, it needs some serious money- like 500 billion. Obama and his genius economic team know this. So, why are they messing around with 20 billon here and 30 billion there? Just hand AIG the whole kit and caboodle and get it over with already! But they won’t; because their agenda is so much larger and they want the American people to THINK they are helping.

Obama’s agenda is to nationalize AIG. He wants AIG to fail. Just like he wants banks to fail. He wants to pass a law to give judges power to change mortgage contracts so when people file bankruptcy the judge can change the principle on the mortgage. He also wants to bail out deadbeats that shouldn’t have gotten mortgages to begin with. Why? Because he wants to give banks money so the government has an investment in the banks until it has 100% ownership then it can be Nationalized. And don’t forget The Big 3. He intends to give them enough money so he can nationalize them, too.

What it boils down to is this. Our Banking, Insurance, Housing and Automobile Industries will be owned by the government. They will be Nationalized and run by the government. Obama’s agenda is to Socialize this nation and what better way to get his scheme going than to pretend he’s helping? By the time the public sees Obama for what he truly is, a Socialist-Marxist, it’ll be too late. Obama ran his campaign on Change, and that’s EXACTLY what we’re getting. Change from Capitalism to Socialism. Obama plans on destroying this country one piece at a time. Look what he’s done in a little over 40 days. I can’t even imagine what he’ll do in the next 4 years.
