Peter Orszag: "...We need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic." VS. General James Doolittle who said that "...competition is the stimulus to improvement."

Bev Perdue: "...we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make to just let them help this country recover." VS. Andy Kessler who says that entrepreneurs "create wealth for society by inventing and being in business and investing their profits into even more productive produces and services. That's 'giving back.'"

Socialism, government dictat and less democracy VS. free enterprise, indicidual initiative and wealth creation. Where do we go from here when two sides are ideologically polarized?

Forget Multiculturalism: Restore The Anglo-Saxon Philosophy Of Liberty


A history professor once postulated that the most pivotal battle shaping America’s destiny was not Yorktown or Gettysburg, but Quebec in 1759. There General Wolfe demolished French claims to Canada, which confirmed that America would develop decisively within the Anglo-protestant mold.
The latest Economic Freedom of the World rankings (for 2009) highlight the good fortune that resulted from Wolfe’s win. Many commentators will rightly deplore America’s precipitous descent over the past decade – down to tenth, yet another startling detail leaps from the page. Eight of the ten freest lands were once owned by Britain.
The nations enjoying limited government, property rights, sound currency, free trade, ease of regulation, low taxes and restrained public spending include: Hong Kong, followed by Singapore, New Zealand, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Chile, United Kingdom, Mauritius and the United States.
The study reveals a potent correlation linking freedom to economic progress. Nations following market principles propel past their government laden counterparts. They earn more, grow faster and “the poorest people in the most economically free countries are nearly twice as rich as the average people in the least free countries.”
The USA has likely fallen further since 2009 as abrasive government expansion continued. Obamacare and Dodd-Frank both passed in 2010. The EPA and NLRB wage regulatory crusades against businesses. Spending remains elevated. Liberty perishes underneath government’s persistent pursuit of power.
In this time of economic stagnation, perhaps prosperity can be retracted from America’s past. As the U.S. declared independence, the Industrial Revolution launched in England. History had heretofore exhibited minimal progress from antiquity. Most remained mired in subsistence level agriculture until suddenly advances in the Anglosphere catapulted living standards forward.
Capitalism offers both abstract liberties as well as freedom from want. Thanks to free markets, common laborers can access more comfort, superior sanitation and even entertainment than nobles experienced before the stirrings of modern industry. The advent of superior medicine and better nutrition even extended life. It’s estimated that prior to the aforementioned advances, three-fourths of everyone ever born died by age 35.
America’s diminished freedom is thus alarming. Historically, America’s unparalleled liberty shone hope across the seas. Our independence was essentially a counter-revolution. America, as Mark Steyn writes, “derives its political character from eighteenth-century British subjects who took English ideas a little further than the mother country was willing to go.”
The colonists reasserted their “ancient rights as Englishmen,” then threatened by London’s encroachments after a long span of benign neglect. Previously, enforcement of the Navigation Acts and other laws had been lackluster and easily skirted. But suddenly parliament began interceding to “extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction.”
Jefferson and company believed London violated the laws of nature and saw independence in keeping with British tradition’s historic trajectory towards liberty. Independence climaxed a long quest which commenced on the fields of Runnymede in 1215 when the Magna Carta curtailed the crown’s reach.
The Declaration meant “not to find out new principles, or new arguments” but to appeal to “ common sense.” Thomas Jefferson was particularly enamored with Anglo-Saxon culture; seeing the American Revolution as an historical step to restore liberties lost under Norman rule. He reminded King George, “America was not conquered by William the Norman, nor its lands surrendered to him.”
Like many American settlers, the Anglo-Saxons developed tribal mores around commonwealths of sovereign individuals claiming inherent, inviolable rights. Even the local king was subject to laws and custom. Property was respected and common law superseded civil statutes. Modern rights to juries and public hearings emanated from Saxon councils.

The Anglo-Saxons fashioned society on individuals, families, communities and later churches. Problems were resolved locally and only if necessary, by the broader nation. Little interference from without was tolerated. People adjoined, not as spokes on a wheel oriented toward a mystical state, but as webs of interlocking dependencies where neighbors bolstered others by shouldering their share of the load.
Modern historians dismiss this as mere lore, but many colonists, Jefferson foremost, believed Anglo-Saxon culture striking similar to theirs and reminiscent of ancient Israel. Jefferson even proposed a national seal emblazoned with Israel wandering toward the Promised Land and the flip side showing Anglo-Saxon heroes. America’s settlement harkened both. Adams credited the Anglo-Saxons “whose political principles and form of government we have assumed.”
Anglo-Saxon customs had eroded and the historicity is murky, but England suffered far less feudal paralysis than Continental Europe with a relatively fluid class system. The colonists bent British culture towards still greater liberties, forging a uniquely American perspective. Governments were established indigenously by small, often isolated groups dealing practically with local exigencies.
America shared the mother country’s language, culture and common law legal systems, without her predisposition for hereditary nobility or top down suzerainty. Republican principles prevailed. Government was instituted to protect life, liberty and property, further defined to incorporate propriety over conscience as the “pursuit of happiness.”
These free market platforms so prospered America that she soon eclipsed England’s vast prosperity. Jefferson boasted that you could travel the entire Eastern seaboard and see nary an American begging. Today, even our poor are wealthy by any material measure. So too have non-British immigrants fared well by adopting Anglo-American norms.
The USA’s two most affluent segments are Jews and Asians. Those who assimilate flourish, but every ethnicity does better economically in America than from whence their ancestors came. Likewise, the top beneficiaries of an English legacy are Asian – Hong Kong and Singapore.
It is the Left’s sacred cow that the Third World suffers from Western hegemony. Yet, the greatest happening to befall many peoples was seemingly being colonized by Britain or conquered by America. Until China’s recent epiphany, Germany and Japan were the world’s next largest economies.
China and India began their ascents by arcing toward the Anglo-American model. Beijing abandoned communism after seeing her Chinese cousins thrive in Asia’s capitalist outposts. India, as reflected by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, has begun to recognize certain benefits from British rule.
When His Britannic Majesty’s forces vanquished India’s Muslim overloads (who invaded India themselves), they did more than establish British preeminence. They also bequeathed the rule of law, functioning courts, property rights and the language of international commerce: English.
While Britain’s empire wasn’t built on altruism, many former colonies profit immensely from her rule. This extends beyond economics. For all of President Obama’s anti-colonialism, remember Britain entered Kenya to abolish the Muslim slave trade, already banished to the interior by the Royal Navy.
Political correctness has so infected American thought that we recoil reflexively at the mere hint of Western brilliance. To the multiculturalists, the only culture that can’t be unequivocally praised is the very Anglo-protestant heritage which spurred America’s greatness. Ironically, it is often guilt laden WASPs, heirs of their wealth, leading the slanderous denunciations of their forbears.
“E Pluribus Unum” – from many, one – gives way to Balkanization where multiculturalists hitch grievance wagons to government’s gravy train. Attracting venturesome immigrants has long boosted America’s fortunes, but success no longer entails mimicking Anglo-American culture. Instead of assimilation, we now espouse bilingual education to abstain from “cultural imperialism.
A quasi-Marxism supplements class warfare with identity politics under the mantle of diversity. Obama’s reelection strategy advocates taxing the affluent to finance public favoritism for others he deems mistreated by what has historically been a libertarian American experiment. Identity politics transform elections into feudal patronage schemes sacrificing property and liberty on the altar of political correctness.
Vigilant Americans must restore the founders’ vision before multiculturalism forever eclipses our last vestiges of liberty.

General of the Armies

We need another General of the Armies, not Army. We have not had one since Pershing in World War I and have had only one other, Washington, the Father of our country.

We have had 7 five-star Generals of the Army (singular): Eisenhower, McArthur and Bradley and Marshall, Arnold, General of the Air Force, the equivalent, and Dewey, King and Leahy, Fleet Admirals, also equivalents to General of the Army.

The title traditionally has been awarded in war time. Are we not now again at war with the liberal left, an enemy combatant aiming at a destructive transformation of America?

Tidbits about 5 star generals from an internet search just inspire me to ask a relevant question. A General of the Army is not the same as a General of the Armies. I want a civilian conservative leader to be like a General of the Armies, with a 6th star emblazoned on his/her crusading coat of arms.

Who knew that taking away the drive's license of a dead beat dad meant that he could not drive to work to earn money to pay the child support he chose not to pay? Whoever ignored this reality now rules that the dead beat need only pay 1/2 of the support and be given 30 days to comply before receiving a notification...

Who knew that investments in infrastructure, renewable energy, job training and quality education would never result in jobs? Whoever believes that more spending means more employment also ignores the reality that lower taxes, reduction of government regulations and less government will inspire job creation.

Whoever never learned how to fix things in the past will not learn how to fix them now.

5th Horseman

One in 5 warriors has PTS, post traumatic stress syndrome. So I hear today. Another misrepresentation (or lie). Actually, few 'warriors' are warriors and are wounded and the military's supply forces greatly exceed soldiers fighting in combat. Also,a politically-correct agenda calls for an ever increasing diagnosis of PTS. Why?

Speaking metaphorically, Republican candidates for President are like warriors fighting to take back America. Talk of a Mr. or Mrs. Wonderful still undiscovered is silly. No such white knight exists. But a dark highwayman rides the campaign trail. Unfortunately, deluded Americans elected the 5th horseman of the apocalypse.

3 revolutions

I quote from S. T. Possony in 1959. "The French revolution cost much and achieved little. The American revolution cost little and achieved much; it was a successful liberating revolution. The Russian revolution cost enormously and proved to be the most thoroughly enslaving revolution of history. It became the greatest disaster of modern times. To paraphrase Lenin, the American revolution was one step forward, the Russian revolution was many steps backward. 'By their fruits, ye shall know them.'"

How did Marx or Lenin or Trotsky or Stalin sound calling for the transformation of Russia by Communist means? Just listen to some of the big O's revolutionary rhetoric now loud and strident and uncompromising on his campaign trail.

One ominous

"ANALYSIS: The resolution of phenomena into elements and factors more fundamental than those readily perceived; esp. with a view toward prediction or intervention." Such describes analysis for a portfolio-investment firm in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

A NEW SOCIALIST REPUBLIC IN NORTH AMERICA: A world without oppression and exploitation in which manual laborers can explore a life of the mind and the legal penal system will nevermore put 1 in 9 young black men in prison." Such describes the goal of the revolution called for by a political economist writing in the Harvard Crimson.

What do the above have in common? No sense. But which definition is more ominous?

BACK TO 14,000

If I say it's true, it must be true because when I heard that Ohio is in its worst shape since 2000 and remembered that the DOW too is in its worst shape since it fell from its 14,000 high, I realized the confluence of the two situations merely makes a fact self-evident - that until the stock market returns to its pre-crash high, you, me, Ohio and America are simply living in a dark time hoping for legitimate change.

United Way advertises itself as supporting the 4 most important things in life: educaton, income, health and home. What do you think? Wouldn't the DOW back to 14,000 do the 4-part trick?

GM, now an arm of our Big Brother in Washingnton, is installing OnStar systems in vehicles to collect data even if the car owner is not a subscriber of OnStar. Why? Information collected can be shared with law enforcement and credit card collectors and "others" according to GM. Invasion of privacy? Meaning of "others"? Gm claims no problem because this 'program' will be on an "anonymized basis." Give me a break - oh no, the arm of government plans to give drivers broken arms(symbolically disabling their freedoms) whether they are guilty of a 'crime' or not. Sounds like life somewhere else in a past uncivilized has just been updated to the present.

Having succeeded the 'eagle' Lenin, Stalin said he and his men were driven by 'holy fear' of not justifying the trust of the masses. His was truly a 'holy terror' that stemmed from Bolshevism's Messianic nature. A British biographer of Stalin, S.S. Montefiore comments ( in 2003) with these memorable words: "The squalidity of this sacred thuggery beggars belief." Read your history and weep. Stalin spoke without "slovenliness of language" which H.G. Wells said makes it "easier to have foolish thoughts." Stalin practiced what he preached.

Our modern Messianic President learned politics from another master of mass solutions, Saul Olinsky. Obama uses slovenly language sprinkled with glittering, misleading genralities. And Americans who elected him definitely had foolish thoughts. His goal, however, remains the same as Stalin's - power to implement a complete transformation of his country. Unlike Stalin, however, our big O always looks up and away With a pose of unworldliness ( note photos), but what transpires behind the scenes will eventually out.

By the way, I would like you to know that watching a few minutes of real time TV last night, I counted 11 commercials during ONE break.

Wm F. Buckley Jr. suggested that the responsibility of thinking man is to make distinctions. Math my way suggests that only by noting distinctions do we reach truth or expose lies.

14,000 gay soldiers over 18 years supposedly have been 'kicked out' of the military. That's approx. 800 a year. The math, however, does not tell you that many of these men and women chose to opt out by 'revealing' their sexual orientation in order to avoid serving in a war zone or for some other cause.

An Illinois wind turbine farm costs 200 million and will create 12 permanent jobs and 100 temporary construction jobs. You do the math and weep.

My kind of math centers around creating wealth and a better life. Antitrust does nothing but give the government the legal authority to punish success. So-called robber barons of the last century like Rockefeller and Carnegie reduced the prices of oil and steel each year and ushered in the industrial revolution with more and better products - hardly a monopoly. A higher standard of living is irrelevant to socialists and bashers of big business. Competition in a capitalistic society usually sorts itself out in the market place. Government just gums up the works with antitrust regulations and punishments. Listen to our big O if you want to hear how negativity and fuzzy math sound.

uncommon sense

Prior to 'unsilenced cal,' my blog used the name 'uncommmon sense' for 4 years. Nothing's changed, however, in my perspective of reality. Please note that we now have 2000 mosques in the U.S. in 2011 as opposed to 1200 in 2001. Obviously, accusations of racism against Muslims must be pushed aside when reality intrudes. 1% of Americans pay 40% of taxes; 5% pay 70%. Again accusations that the rich do not pay their 'fair' share, fade in the light of reason. Yet our leader in the White House, lies and lies and lies.

1 & 1 & 1 = insanity

Sentenced to 50 years at age 49 for Medicare fraud, Mr. Duran must pay $87 million in restitution ( how in prison? ) and be supervised for 3 years after his release from prison ( at age 99? ).

Our government unveiled an initiative called "Study in the States" which will examine regulatory changes, expand public engagement between the government and academia and provide an online information hub for the Dept. of Homeland Security and its agency partners to provide current and prospective students ( bright immigrants) with updated and relevant visa requirements. (How is this for DOING SOMETHING?)

In 10 years, these special education disabilities have increased: Autism, 306%, Developmental delay, 72%, Health impairments including chronic fatigue, 127%. ( I hope you don't think others such as emotional disturbance, mental retardation, specific learning disability, speech or language imnpairment and 'others' have gone away?)

1 & 1 & 1 example of insanity equals 3 examples of insanity. God bless the U.S.A.

Do the math

38 billion to create 65,000 jobs of which only 3500 were actually created. 528 million to create 1100 jobs. Do the math of Obama stimulus spending, read waste and weep. Government represents pork projects for each Congress person's district, subsidies at infinitum, systems scammed, lobbyists' campaign contribution, overspending - all enough waste to drive a conservative like me to drink. At least the Obama administration has not allowed for a third gender on a passport application - neither male nor female or a selection different from one's birth certificate. Where? Transgender people need to be respected in Australia. Yea, Obama!

On the Moon or on Earth

Sorry, James ( Carville), what we need in the White House is not a creationism-undoing, global-warming-accepting, immigration amnesty-providing, social security Ponzi scheming, clean air regulating, mortality denying, Wall Street bashing, America-hating liberal running my country.
What we do need is a conservative, tried and true like me. We live in 2 Americas, James, yours and mine. Never the twain planets shall meet.

On the Road

A man’s ( or woman’s) car is his dream machine. Ever since the internal combustion engine overrode the manpower of the bicycle, men and women have been seduced by the automobile. My 1st love was no different. But today, chrome and metal have been replaced by plastic, padding and air bags. And rules, rules, rules have completely transformed the marvelous, driving machine and the auto industry.

We recently celebrated Labor Day. What better way to evaluate it than to note that the power of unions and government regulations have crippled a great auto industry. The Obama administration just implemented new CAFÉ rules. No one likes a new rule, another layer of freedom stripped away, but apparently these automakers do: GM, Toyota Motor, General Motors, Chrysler Group, Ford Motor, Honda Motor, Nissan Motor, and BMW.

New rules will require truck manufacturers to meet fuel-efficiency standards for lowering carbon-dioxide emissions by as much as 20% by 2018. 18 wheelers, buses, garbage trucks and delivery trucks are included. This rule follows a preceding rule for autos. It requires a corporate average of 54.5 mpg between 2017 and 2025. Since 9 million gallons of oil fill up our cars and trucks every day, these rules will 1. reduce our addiction to oil, 2. curb carbon pollution, 3. create jobs, and 4. save consumers money. Really? How can one administration tell such a quadruple whopper of a lie? Big Brother’s real agenda is not only the destruction of the free market system in energy consumption and car choice but also the push for alternative fuels, the swans of the EPA. Oil is the ugly duckling.

More rules mean more problems, less profit and fewer jobs. Union victories of high labor costs and unsustainable retirement benefits as well as government regulations, eventually brought our big 3 car makers to their knees. As we know, Chrysler and GM were in fiscal crises for years. GM was restructured by the government after a $50 billion bailout having been $40 billion in debt. How can a unionized company fall $50 billion into debt for retiree health-care obligations? Chrysler, having already been bailed out in the 80's, received another bailout and partial buyout by the government. In restructuring, Chrysler reduced its UAW hourly wages and benefits from $76.00 to $49.00. Volkswagen and Hyundai Motors, by the way, pay $25.00 an hour. It is appropriate to discuss the ‘benefits’ of unionization close to the holiday, Labor Day.

Fortunately the auto industry knows that ‘no’ from our administration never means ‘no.’ In negotiating their deal, auto makers engineered an escape route of a review by 2018, when, if targets are judged too ambitious, targets could get lowered or rules changed. Halfway through the cycle, a review will determine if rules are overly harsh or lenient given fuel prices, consumer behavior and technological advancements. The new requirements - known as CAFE (corporate average fuel economy) can be thus fudged. Credits can be earned to make it easier for manufacturers to reach higher mpg’s.

Perhaps as you read the rules above for mpg you missed the phrase ‘ corporate average.’ This allows for loopholes. Credits for technologies exist for solar-panels in the roof to power a cooling system, front grille louvers that automatically close to reduce drag when the car’s driving at higher speeds, air conditioning systems that use climate-friendly refrigerants and battery-powered vehicles that allow auto makers to comply without reaching the 54.5 mpg. Credits can be won for hybrid trucks, alternative fuels and other ways of improving fuel economy. An electric car counts as two zero emission cars when calculating efficiency and CO2 emissions of the total fleet. Large pickups called ‘strong hybrids,’ that run for a time on battery power can get a credit on every truck sold for 1.5 to 2 mpg. ‘Mild hybrids’ that give an electric boost to acceleration from a stop get a credit for 1 mpg. A credit for engines shutting down at stop lights. Yes. Beefier batteries, energy recycling brakes. Yes. Yes. Smaller and lighter cars? Yes. Even a turbo-charged 4-cylinder engine that acts as a fuel economy feature.

Will the regulations save drivers more in gas costs than they add to the price of cars and trucks? Will citizens diet to drops the pounds needed to fit into mini cars? Will tax credits be necessary like rebates in the Cash for Clunkers program?

Auto makers apparently will simply play the credit game, allowing them to avoid dramatically shrinking the size and power of some vehicles yet continue to offer an array of models ranging from small electric cars to beefy pickups. Obviously, selection and free choice power the auto industry.

Government gives with one hand and takes with the other. This is the lesson to be learned from such nonsense and over- regulation. If it is all too depressing and confusing to you, flash with me back to the time of my 1st love, a ‘51 Ford. I can recall the thrills of yesteryear in my lime green, pop-eyed beast with white walls and Overdrive. Poor indeed is the chance for a 21st century, regulated American to feel the passion I felt behind that ivory wheel.

How much more?

How much more can we Americans- awake to and aware of the big O's destructive and punishing ways - take?

California, New York and Illinois are the 3 least friendly states to business; Texas, North Carolina and South Carolina are the 3 most friendly states. Left vs. right. Liberal vs. conservative.

The obvious cries out to be acknowledged. As George Orwell wrote in 1939: "We have sunk to such a depth that the restatement of the obvious has become the first duty of intelligent men."

So sad, there are still too many foolish men (and women).

Speak clearly

A French bank talks about its "dollar denominated debt."
A study mentions "partnered men living with a girlfriend."
GE refers to its "country-focused structure."
Duh, duh, duh. Speaking clearly went out truth. Student loans have increased from $100 billion in '08 to $386 billion in '11. This statistic just follows the lie and each preceding lie that every person needs to attend college. And that's the truth.

GE also spoke vaguely when it said it needs to "beef up discussion making capabilities ... to respond more quckly to business prospects." The devil is, of course, in the details.

I simply say: 'Vote out our present, President Dracula before he drains more blood from the jugulars of my fellow Americans.'

America grieves, reflects...

The heading of a picture of George W. Bush next to Barack Obama at a 9/11/11commemorative ceremony reads, "America Grieves, Reflects." Obama's head is up; Bush's head is down. Bush represents humility; Obama arrogance. Question? Whom does America grieve? On whom do we reflect? Answeer - Obama, Bush. Perfect picture speaking a 1000 ( actually 3000 victims) words. Perfect symbolism. Pure reality. It reminds me of my 9/11 framed commemorative photo. In the darkened backgroud are the twin towers; in the forground, a large, weeping American eagle.

9/11 Missed Opportunity

9/11 Memorials through out the nation are weepy peans to loss. We lament the dead and injured and begin, 10 years late, building memorial to them. But no where is there an assertion of the indomitable spirit and determinations of Americans to prevail over the barbarians who dare to stike at liberty.

A fitting memorial to the dead an injured would have been if the president had planned a worldwide stike at the terroists where ever they may be found. A year of planning involving the military and intelligence services could have identified a multiplicity of targets site and indiviuals terrorists and on 9/11/11 the hammer of rightous wrath could have descended upon them in a lesson that all poential terrorists would see the strength of United State might and resolve. Terrorist, and I am speaking of Islamists, respect strenght and not weeping.

This could have been a day that left all terrorist weeping at their losses and loss of face. Instead we have New York banniing firemen and clergy from the 9/11 service but finding room for the "Executive Deputy Assistant Directors of Healing and Outreach'. God only know how many of those useless bureaucrat there are.

Bloomburg vs. Patton

Contrast Bloomburg with Patton. According to Bloomburg, the 9/11 remembrance ceremony will permit no firemen, no clergy at New York's Ground Zero; just Executive Deputy Assistant Directors of Healing and Outreach will be there.

In August of 1944, after the fall of Paris, an underground oil line, Pluto, pumped gas ashore into Normandy but insufficient overland lines had been constructed to render delivery to the troops. Nevertheless, Gen.Patton boasted that: "Dammit, just give me 400,000 gallons of gas and I'll put you inside Germany in 2 days." Gen. Eisenhower, however, restricted Patton to 2000 gallons a day.

Who wins the fight for right and might in the ring of ideas and ideals? Patton by a knockout punch of patriotism. Down with political correctness and liberal cr--.

Yesterday, today and forever

Yesterday I read about hundreds of International Longshore and Warehouse Union members storming a newly built grain terminal as a labor dispute led to violence. Six security guards were held hostage during the predawn rampage which ended after the intruders spilled grain from rail cars that enterned the terminal, cut brakes on some rail vehicles and tossed a security firm's SUV into a ditch. No charges of kidnapping or disorderly conduct or inciting a riot, or... will be filed. More of this union fight cauused the closing of two Pacific ports.

Today I hear a union member curse out a member of the press repeatedly as he ( the union thug) threatens to punch the reporter, destroy his camera, all the time screaming he will wipe out the "fucking cock-sucker," repeated over and over again.

Forever is the adverb necessary to determine the time frame of a liberal Democrat's typically uncivil, crude and criminal behavior. Nothing approaching justice ever touches one of them.

As opposed to them, we in the tea party suffer the slings and arrows of liberal misfortune. God, forgive them if they ever ( impossible, their blindness is eternal) realize what they do.

D-day again

"It is better that war heap its burdens unfairly than that victory be jeopardized in an effort to equalize the ordeal," said Gen. Omar Bradley about the 1st Infantry Division as he prepared for D-Day, June 6th, 1944. The 1st was the only one experienced, veteran assault division, that could do the job, so it was needed again after other successful campaigns). Wars usually are waged out of fear, honor or perceived self-interest. They end with one victor and one vanquished. Jimmy Hoffa Jr. proclaimed his Union army ready to wage war on the tea party. Is fear, honor or self-interest the motivation? Or all three. Of course, the tea party is driven by the same motivations - fear, honor and self-interest. Our war is for the restoration of our beloved country. Now reference Bradley's acute perception. Freedom ( our tea party's goal) naturally heaps burdens unfairly on Americans because equalizing effort and spreading the wealth mean defeat not victory in the fight against our liberal enemy, bent on controlling every aspect of our lives.

No sense

Please, please don't let your children grow up to be politicians. Somehow, over time, politicians, officials, managers, community members with power, learn the art of speaking non sense. Locally, a city council passed a number of ordinances because they needed to "pass an ordinance to get a mechanism in place." Usually, only a liberal can doubletalk nonsense, but too often, too much of this pervades the culture. So please, please, don't let your children grow up to be politicians. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Rather let them become sports' stars and their waste will be worshipped.

In extremis

'May your hand be stretched out in friendship and never in want,' is an Irish Proverb. What a waste of words! Regardless of its meaning, these words seem inappropriate to and the antithesis of reality. Friendship has been lost between the political parties as a result of conflicting, partisan ideologies. Few Americans want for any necessities or luxuries in these United States, yet the media and administration characterize our society as simultaneously hungry and obese.

Obama's 'friend, union leader, Hoffa, slanders the tea party in America. Does anyone care but tea party members like ourselves who have already written a letter to the White House demanding an apology? Proverbs are useless; prayer is our last resort.

why 50 times?

For every unit of electricity produced, only $.02 subsidizes Big Oil. For Big Green, the amount is $1.00. Wow! Isn't this a ratio of 50 to 1? I say remove the subsidy to oil AND to Big Green and let the free market run its course.

Not Jesus

Turn "trauma into treasure," or escape from the "desperation zone" or "impossibility zone." How? According to a local writer, preacher and Minister - you should turn to Jesus. Receive the Jesus message. Because nothing but problems beset us, you need to turn somewhere for help - to Jesus. I find this approach to living depressing and distorted. It reminds me of the war with words in both liberal land and Communist North Korea where lies are embraced with gusto. The war of words takes precedence over a desire to evaluate facts. Prisoners of war learned this in Korea and Viet Nam; conservatives and tea party patriots easily discern this today in the land of Obama. No, Jesus cannot solve the trauma, desperation or impossible situation in which we find ourselves trapped and waiting. Prayers alone won't do. We must run to, not from the light of reason.

Jeasu is God. His message can enlighten and comfort us. but He is not the solution to our everyday problems. We apply our reason, as informed by His message to solve and live with our problems.

Retrogression is in order, esp. on the cusp of the 'O's speech to re-jumpstart the economy. In it, unfortunately, we will hear about fear and the consequent need of big brother's help. "The government is not an insurer of its citizens against the hazards of the elements." Neither the 'O' nor President Coolidge who said this after a November flood especially in Vermont, in 1927, can prevent an act of God's nature. Coolidge also said in his State of the Union address in December of that year of the Vermont flood, a state might receive relief when overburdened, but ... "this however does not mean restoration." The autonomy and sanctity of the individual as well as the individual state remained paramount to Coolidge. Too bad we can not regress, because in this time, 2011, our big 'O' puts big government first, foremost and always ahead of individual responsibility and states' rights. Effecive flood prevention and appropriate road-building measures were eventually enacted by Coolidge the next spring, but states took the lead in their recoveries. Goverment's role should be a limited one.

The Mayor of Columbus, Ohio says people need more respect for the police and common sense. Yes, you guessed it, his statement was inspired by the continuous wave of death and violence between black, inner city gangs. Duh.

Shelby Steele suggests that the goal of modern American liberals( i.e. progressives including the Obama administration) is to trade the "burdens of greatness for the relief of mediocrity." Duh.

The evidence is in - on both above accounts. Too much of black culture reeks of mediocrity. Too much of liberalism reeks of irrationalism. Greatness has been re-defined and debased; respect for any one of the 10 commandments has drowned in the puddle of political correctness.

Where does America go from here?
