The Kind Of America We Want
Hot Air says we should give Joe Scarborough credit for being
the one person on MSNBC with the brains to ask Dick Durbin why we
want to hike taxes on capital gains while we struggle to recover
from the Great Recession. The ObamaCare bill applies Medicare
taxes to investment income for the first time, putting earners above
$200,000 on the hook for the bill while Congress spreads that wealth
as it sees fit. For the self-employed earners, those taxes are
doubled, since there is no employer to share the burden; for
businesses, it creates yet more expense, eating up cash that could
have gone toward expansion and hiring.
So how does Dick
Sen. Durbin: "The cost...of having the kind of America we want to
Yes, if youíre making over $200,000 a
year, youíre going to pay slightly more in taxes. Itís the
cost, I think, of having the kind of America we want to have.
What kind of America
is that -- one with chronically high unemployment and a growing
dependent class? Jim DeMint puts the question this way:
What kind of America do we want to have?
One where people are free to live their lives as they see fit,
or one where Washington controls nearly every aspect of our
Democrats like Durbin obviously want the latter.
Weíd better make sure that Republicans support the former before
getting behind them in elections from now on.
To Control The People
The wrong words slip out of
Congressman John Dingell's mouth (00:50)
Glen Enloe says Barack (Barry) Obama didnít have enough woes with
mounting health care opposition, Rep. John Dingell (D-MI) said in an
interview March 22 that "Öit takes a long time to do the necessary
administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation
together to control the people."
Another Democrat lets yet another party secret out of the bag.
Of course, if youíve been paying attention lately, this is no real
surprise. Itís always been about control.
On the night
of the passage of the health care bill, Dingell was a featured
speaker at the leadership victory press conference. They may
not want to feature him again.
It happens so rarely, that
when Dingell spoke the truth, it sent shock waves that are still
reverberating. Whatís up with Democrats NOT lying?
Dingell must not have gotten the memo that day.
Yep, it looks
like Barry better rein in John Dingell, Alcee Hastings and other
loose-lipped Democrats. Before we know it one might slip up
and tell us the truth about the global warming fraud. But
thatís not too likely to happen.
"Health Care Is Now A
admits ObamaCare is all about income redistribution (00:47)
They ARE Socialists
They Tell Us What They Are.... SOCIALISTS! (05:45)
Glen Beck's Washington rally got Obama and the
Obots all wee-wee'd up, so they decided to have their own rally to
support the Obamamessiah's socialist revolution.
According to the
One Nation Working Together site, "more than 400 organizations,
representing tens of thousands of individuals who have endorsed the "One
Nation Working Together campaign" have signed on as partners for the
Oct. 2 rally in Washington, D.C.
This movement includes human and
civil rights organizations, unions and trade associations, nonprofit
organizations, youth and student groups, religious and other faith
groups, educational, peace, environmental, and ethnic associations, and
any other groups and individuals who are committed to pulling our
country back together now.
Obamaís own Organizing for America has
praised the effort, calling it the "biggest progressive demonstration in
decades" and on Barack Obama's Organizing for America
is the following notice:
"Rally with the President -- With
elections less than two months away, President Obama is holding rallies
across the country."
When Beck held his grass-roots rally, who
showed up? Grandma and grandpa, mom and dad, Americans of all
parties, races and philosophies -- red, white and blue Americans --
So, who is scheduled to attend Obama's astroturf rally?
Every enemy of America there ever was. Here's just a taste:
Communist Party USA (CPUSA); International Socialist
Organization; Democratic Socialists of America; National
Council of La Raza; Service Employees International Union;
Rainbow PUSH Coalition; Green for All; National Education
Association; Ya Ya Network. The sponsors claim 400
organizations are represented -- 95% of them are dedicated enemies of
the US Constitution, and the free-enterprise system.
This rally will finally define
Obama. This rally will clearly identify the politics of this
son-of-bitch. There have been millions of words written describing
who Obama is, and what Obama is. Most of those words are pure
bovine excrement, and I can think of no clearer demonstration of who and
what this guy is than the public display of people who support him.
And it really needs to be pointed out there that a great number of
those attending the 10/2 rally are getting free bus rides, free T
shirts, free food, and free Metro passes from the radical organizations
behind this event. For example the National Education Association
(NEA), funded by its member's dues and the federal government, is paying
teachers 50% of travel, food, and lodging expenses.
When Beck held his rally, and when the TEA Party has their rallies,
the grounds are always policed up. Watch for the pile of debris these
environmentally-friendly whackjobs leave behind them.
Obama's "Liberal" Supporters
This AM, Fox and Friends dedicated a 15-second report to
yesterday's One Nation Working Together Rally, describing it as a
rally of "liberal and union groups," and then added "gay and civil
rights groups." There was absolutely no mention of this bunch:
out that video and photos taken today after the One Nation Working
Together Rally concluded show that participants left significant amounts
of trash at memorials in our nation's capital dedicated to fallen
The World War II Memorial on the National Mall, which
is opposite the Lincoln Memorial where the rally was held this
afternoon, had food trash and rally signs all around the granite seating
along the perimeter of the Pacific side of the memorial. Colorful
signs bearing the logo of rally co-sponsor SEIU are prevalent.
Among the signs and water bottles strewn about is what looks like an
uneaten Twinkie carelessly dropped at the edge of a fountain
commemorating the hard-fought victory in the Pacific theater.
the Lincoln Memorial -- and these are the people who are always
preaching to the rest of us about not littering and saving the
environment -- here, they demonstrate that they expect others to clean
up their mess:
Memorial Bridge, which crosses the Potomac River
between the Lincoln Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery, was
littered with identical cardboard lunch boxes. The boxed lunches were
free of charge to union and
NAACP members, along with free t-shirts, free Metro fare cards and
bus rides from across the country to the rally. FReeper Stratman1969
posted several photographs at his
Marooned in Marin blog that
shows the trash left on Memorial Bridge.
Judging from the results, the rent-a-mob astroturfers couldn't come
close to Glenn Beck's August 28th rally, held in the same area -- and
many of those in attendance came for the alleged music. The AP is
reporting that organizers claimed they had as many participants as
Beck's rally, but the AP also admitted that Saturday's rent-a-crowd was
less dense and didn't reach as far to the edges as they did during

Rally You'll Never See In Legacy Media -- good stuff
The Missing Link in the Evolution of Barack
Selwyn Duke says that one of the problems with
the idea of "American exceptionalism" is that it exacerbates a kind of
complacency common to man. This is the phenomenon whereby people
often view themselves as exceptions -- saying, after some tragedy, for
instance, something such as "I never thought it could happen to me."
On a national level -- and this especially plagues great nations --
this manifests itself in the notion that "it" could never happen here.
Oh, the "it" could be descent into tyranny, domination by a foreign
power, or dissolution. Or maybe it could be the election of a
leader who is a Manchurian candidate, a traitor within, someone bent on
destroying the nation that gave him everything.
That..."it"...couldn't happen here. In fact, the idea is so
preposterous to many Americans that if such a threat loomed, they would
never see it coming. And they would call a person who warned of it
So I want to present you with a hypothetical. Let's
say a leader were elected who had, during his childhood, been mentored
by an avowed Nazi. Let us further say that his guardians had
chosen this mentor for him, indicating that they were likely sympathetic
to the man's beliefs. Now, let us say that upon reaching college,
this future leader gravitated toward Nazi professors. Moreover, we
then find out that a man who knew the leader as an undergraduate and
was, at the time, a Nazi himself, said that the leader was "in
100-percent total agreement" with his Nazi professors and was a flat-out
Nazi who believed in old-style Brownshirt tactics.
almost done. After graduating, the leader-to-be spends twenty
years sitting in a white-power church, has an alliance with a
self-proclaimed Nazi and ex-terrorist, and, apparently, becomes a member
of a National Socialist party for a while. And then, upon being
elected, he appoints an avowed Nazi to his administration, and also a
woman who cites Adolf Hitler as one of her two favorite philosophers.
Now here's the million-depreciated-dollar question:
What would be
nuttier: to claim that this man was a Nazi, or to claim that such an
assertion is out-of-bounds?
Furthermore, if people appeared
unconcerned about the leader's radical past, what would be the most
A. They're sympathetic to Nazism.
B. They're ignorant of his personal history. C.
They're rationalizing away a frightening reality. D. Some
combination of the above.
Let's now transition to the actual. Here is a
fact: If you took the above description of my hypothetical leader and
replaced "Nazi" with "communist," "flat-out Nazi" with "flat-out
Marxist-Leninist," "Brownshirt tactics" with "communist revolution,"
"white-power" with "black-power," "National Socialist" with "socialist,"
and "Adolf Hitler" "with Mao Tse-tung," you would have an accurate
description of a leader in power today.
