What if Elections Mattered Again?

BettyJean Downing Kling

Those of you who know me since I ran for office in 1990 and 1992 have heard me advocate government reform over and over again. You may have read my “Patriot Plan: Voter Imposed Term Limits” drafted in 1990 in which I explain why we need a third party and have to throw the bums out – all of them. I amusingly call our elected officials two wings of the same vulture.
Today I was made aware of a 5 minute speech that got Judge Napolitano fired from FOX news nearly a year ago. If you are not familiar with the Judge he is a brilliant jurist. More articulate than I, perhaps you will take note as he reveals what I have not been able to clearly convey all these years.
The Judge eloquently and powerfully details explicit facts that demonstrate what we have failed to recognize. If we continue to do what we have been doing – we are going to lose the America our founders gave us. Perhaps we are already too late.
Note: Ron Paul is not the answer but – “We the People” are.
Please listen to and digest this speech, if you believe it has merit – pass it on and perhaps “We the People” will begin to take back our country and stop the madness.

Obama and Axelrod Tweet During the Transfer of Remains Ceremony

By Greg Pollowitz
September 14, 2012 3:46 P.M.

This is just unbelievable, especially in light of the Defcon 1 attack the MSM put on Romney for responding to a tweet from the US Embassy in Cairo without waiting some unspecified period of time. Will those same MSM bobble-head dolls criticize the president and his most trusted adviser for tweeting during a funeral?

Here’s the first one from the president’s account, not from him personally:


Look at the time-stamp. This is literally in the middle of the ceremony. Buy a sweatshirt! The Arab Spring is now the Arab Winter! Brrrrr!!!

But not to be undone, David Axelrod also couldn’t wait to speak up:


At least Axelrod waited for the ceremony to end — by about 4 minutes, according to when Mark Knoller’s tweeted the doors to the hearses closing:


Hat-tip to @cuffymeh for catching this.

 

The real war on women: Dirty Words on Clean Skin

BettyJean Downing Kling

Up to now we’ve essentially heard from male authors writing from a male perspective. Dirty Words on Clean Skin, with courage and conviction, recounts the experiences that launched the REAL “War on Women.” Finally, after four years of silence, I am heartened that this woman author is coming forward to expose the truth as we actually endured it. This book is written by one who speaks for millions. Hat’s off to Anita Finlay and thank you for misbehaving! Afterall – Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

A shocking exposé about the real war on women…who’s buying, who’s selling and why they get away with it. This eye opening journey chronicles both Hillary Clinton’s sexism-plagued historic run and the rampant denigration of women that rages on today with impunity. Dirty Words on Clean Skin transcends party politics. It is less about the treatment of one woman than the ramifications of denying equal respect to all women. This first person narrative will resonate with many who feel a burning frustration with mainstream media and the state of our political dialogue today. In 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama waged an epic battle for the presidential nomination that captured the imagination and hopes of millions, but the joy of watching a qualified woman vie for the presidency was marred by newsmen and pundits calling Hillary Clinton a hellish housewife, Nurse Ratched, she-devil and bitch. DIRTY WORDS ON CLEAN SKIN examines the tactics that do damage to the credibility of powerful women and the cost to those watching from the ground. Anita Finlay’s shocking political odyssey travels beyond Hillary Clinton’s historic candidacy to investigate the media’s troubling influence over our electoral process and the behavior of a society not as evolved as advertised. Whether the subject is Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin or Elizabeth Warren, no woman is immune. The facts speak for themselves and drive this carefully researched, explosive and conversational exposé. For sixteen years, polls have named Hillary Clinton America’s most admired woman, yet when it counted, the media depicted her as a vile harpy standing in the way of history. Today, articles from The New York Times to the Huffington Post are encouraging her to once again stand for the Presidency, yet any prescription offered to a woman attempting to break the “highest, hardest glass ceiling” will be worthless without an honest discussion of the culprits and their methods. That discussion has yet to take place. Anita Finlay

Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening

Ms. Finlay’s book resonated with me on so many levels, especially the awakening to the rampant sexism and misogyny in the 2008 campaign. Once those two were out in the open, it was as if a sleeping giant had been awakened. Sadly, sexism and misogyny are still very much in the fore, especially in the political realm. Thank heavens Ms. Finlay chronicled this period in our history lest it be lost. This book is a must-read. The Rev. Amy J. Samonds

Dirty Words On Clean Skin brilliantly uncovers the dark side of our “beloved” patriarchal democratic system. Pro America through strength and conviction, Anita Finlay sheds light on our country’s internal war with feminism and its long hold on our “glass ceiling.” Despite the destructive mass media bias, Anita’s research, effort and awareness has given us a tool to discern the truth about our current political process. Dirty Words On Clean Skin reaches into the heart of America and reveals the upheavals and crisis women face in our current backward thinking political process. Anita’s responsive, investigative action into the injustices of our country’s media bias has awakened us that constructive change is needed and within our grasp. Shelby Heard

Thank you Anita Finlay for writing this book!!!! Our media has underreported (and that’s putting it kindly) the fact that 3.4 million diehard lifelong Democrats left the Democratic Party in 2008 over the disgusting sexism emanating from the “party for women.” It was such a shocking and unbelievable time and it was swept under the rug. Finlay’s book names chapter and verse of this awful saga in real time. Many of us are still as furious as Finlay as to what transpired, and the REAL magic of the Obama campaign was how it broke the bond between so many people and the party that they loved and considered to be “family.” It will be a good read for skeptics who still don’t understand what happened, and it will be a sad but important reminder to those who experienced the events the way Finlay did. Wherever a person stands on the historic election of 2008, this book gives a more complete picture of what occurred. A must read for all historians, history buffs, Obama supporters, and really anyone who follows politics. Well done Anita Finlay!!!! Cynthia Ruccia

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: Are you ready to party- or are you ready to rumble- this is after-all a war on women?

BettyJean Downing- Kling

Ladies are you ready to fight this war against us? Some of our opponents are other women! Perhaps instead of fighting with them we should talk. 

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is fighting for a job and her political life- but it is up to American’s women us to fight for our own lives- shall we fight for Debbie’s Job and future or our own?

Before you make up your mind- I urge you to read two books by amazing women who were there when the REAL “War against women” began! I was there and so were millions of women who were forced to sit down and shut up. But our time has come. Gigi Gaston along with Bettina Sofia Viviano, who started her own film production company in 1990 after serving as vice president of production for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment made a documentary called “ We will not be silenced” http://wewillnotbesilenced2008.com/index.htm

Michelle Thomas who said she received death threats as she gathered the 300 signed and notarized petitions required by Democratic National Convention rules to prompt a count of votes for Hillary Clinton on the first ballot, has just released an astonishing statement that I personally witnessed : “Obama thugs history revealed in Michele Thomas Bettina Viviano interview, Obama stole 1996 Alice Palmer election and 2008 DNC primaries caucuses another documentary. http://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2012/04/09/obama-thugs-history-revealed-in-michele-thomas-bettina-viviano-interview-obama-stole-1996-alice-palmer-election-and-2008-dnc-primaries-caucuses/

Thousands of us are blogging and interviewing each other. Weeks ago I asked, What Republican war on Women? https://freemenow.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/what-republican-war-on-women/

 On Monday I interviewed Anita Finlay on her new book Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening, here it here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freemenow/2012/04/10/the-majority-united

Women are beginning to author books on the War on Women admitting it exists but bringing the evidence to prove it is not a Republican war waged this election cycle, but the pattern of behavior launched against women every election year by both the Democrats and the Republicans in an effort to use women  for their votes.

The following two books,  Admit The Horse – PG Abeles and  Dirty Words On Clean Skin: Sexism and Sabotage, a Hillary Supporter’s Rude Awakening – Anita Finlay speak specifically to the all out assault waged by the Democrats during the primary elections back in 2008 when a woman had the audacity to actually try to run for the highest office in the land. I have written blogs about this woman hating phenomenon and now women are writing books, finally unafraid to speak out.
I reviewed both books thus:

This review is from: Admit The Horse (Paperback)

In 2008, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama waged an epic battle for the presidential nomination, but was it really a fair fight? The media told the mythical version of a dark horse coming from behind to win the race but Paulie Abeles opens our minds to an alternate narrative.
Perhaps those who wander down the yellow brick road may one day have the courage to pull the curtain back questioning who or what power was really behind the so-called magic of 2008 but those of us who worked the front lines know all to well it was plain old smoke and mirrors concealing the fraud and intimidation of the twenty-first century’s “War on Women”.
“Admit the Horse”, to those of us who lived it, is not a work of fiction at all- it is a factual account of the `war on women’ launched during the 2008 primary by the DNC, the left wing media and the pundits who rely on the political machines that run the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Podcast= here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freemenow/2012/04/10/the-majority-united

Up to now we’ve essentially heard from male authors writing from a male perspective while women have remained intimidated by comments like bitter old hags, *washed up *racist *hostile *hysterical *extreme *angry *crazed *sexist

This year, name calling be damned,  women will not be silenced and in this book Dirty Words on Clean Skin, Anita Finlay,  with courage and conviction has set out to  recount the experiences that launched the REAL ”War on Women”. Those who launched this misogynistic war in 2008 have tried to conceal it for 4 years and now attempt to foist the blame for it on the rival party in time for the 2012 election. But the anger of women who were dealt the first blows are still feeling the sting,  and that fury  has finally reached fever pitch and we will not be silenced or confused by what we encountered first hand on the front lines. 

Millions of us were ridiculed, degraded and humiliated, hundreds of thousands were tormented and threatened by what we saw and heard. To those of us who witnessed the unspeakable deceitfulness, corruption and intimidation that ultimately led to the abrogation of our American Democracy, and for those of us who suffered or were humiliated by blatant sexism and misogyny or were by victims of the race baiting of the 2008 presidential primary season our time has come!

Finally, after four years of unbearable silence and cover-up I am heartened that women authors are audaciously coming forward to expose the truth as we actually endured it. Upwards of 3 million women never gave in, never gave up and never gave out. This book is written by one who speaks for millions who, because we were not believed when we spoke up — were silenced — in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

In an election year, we can be sure of two things:  First, the incumbent and his opponent are going to pander to groups where their poll numbers need shoring up.  Second, we can count on the mainstream media to function as the de facto PR firm for their favored son, further ginning up whatever problem said politician avers we need to solve, coincidentally ensuring his re-election.  In this case, that favored son is President Obama.

The current pandering is aimed squarely at the hearts and minds of women.  First, we had the contraceptive debate designed to whip us into a frenzy and now, suddenly, and as if it had not occurred to anyone else before him, the President deigns to tell us women we are not cookie cutter people and need to be dealt with as individuals.  Will this political pander work?  Of course it will.  If I’d learned anything in 2008, it is that women have an endless capacity to settle for crumbs rather than standing up to claim the cake.  That is the only way we could have witnessed the more qualified female candidate dragged through the mud, only to watch Ms. Magazine offer up a cover photo of Mr. Obama and declare, “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like.”

The real war on women is something entirely different than we are led to believe.  It cannot be contained in sound bites and certainly will not be explained in worthy fashion by someone who advantaged himself at every turn by the sexist rhetoric that was used to take down his worthy primary opponent.  In the name of changing the narrative and reclaiming the debate, my book Dirty Words On Clean Skin asks us all to examine the daily media and political brainwashing that deliberately shames, marginalizes and abuses women.  I am so pleased to launch my website to further this cause…please help it to go viral!

Also on the website is a video that shares more information about the book — and why it advantages all of us to get involved:

The Cult of Obama

By Robin of Berkeley (Posted in American Thinker) September 7, 2011
http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/09/the_cult_of_obama.html

We’re playing those mind games together
Pushing the barriers,
Planting seeds
Playing the mind guerrilla
Chanting the mantra, peace on earth

- John Lennon

It’s a chilling moment when the light goes out in someone’s eyes. A once-radiant child hardens from abuse. A woman’s heart shrinks after her husband’s abandonment.

The person looks the same, maybe acts the same. But something is gone, and what’s lost is irretrievable. It’s like when a person dies: in a heartbeat, the soul vanishes.

I see this phenomenon every day: a light dimming. The friendly shopkeeper snaps at me. My cheerful neighbor seems flattened.

And you hear it in the news: people acting strangely, going off the deep end. The most bizarre behavior becoming the new normal.

A thug bites off a finger. Sarah Palin’s church is torched. Black Panthers intimidate voters.

An esteemed Columbia University black architecture professor punches a white female coworker in the eye for not doing more about white privilege. He has no history of violence. Why now?

Meanwhile, liberal leaders, such as Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Bill Clinton, and Joe Biden, incite attacks on political opponents by using incendiary language, such as “barbarians,” “Nazis,” “tea-baggers.” Perhaps not coincidentally, flash mobs of blacks attack innocent whites all over the country; black youths injure or even kill non-whites in “knock ‘em down” assaults.

In the past week or so, a senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus tells the Tea Party to go to hell, and the head of one of America’s biggest unions incites union members to violence: “Let’s take these son of a bitches out.” When Barack Obama takes the stage to follow this incitement, he says he is “proud,” and the following day his press spokesman refuses comment.

Why now? This may be the most important question of our time. Why are some people reaching the boiling point? Why do many others look vacant, like in an Invasion of the Body Snatchers? The shootings at military bases, from Little Rock to Fort Hood — why now?

It’s Obama, of course.

Liberals will excoriate me for writing this. They’ll insist that bad behavior is not Obama’s fault. He’s a man of peace.

But study the phenomenon of cults, and the dynamics are always the same. The leader can incite violence without ever getting his hands dirty. Obama is controlling the marionette of the masses.

If Obamamania is a cult, then Obama is the cult leader. Cult leaders routinely pull the strings of their followers. The most extreme example is Charles Manson. He rots in prison for murders he never committed. He didn’t have to do the dirty work. His brainwashed charges did his bidding.

I’m not saying Obama is a Charles Manson. There are varying degrees of manipulation, from using sexy blondes to entice men to buy cars all the way to hypnotizing them to drink poisoned Kool Aid. But there’s a common denominator in all mind-control: manipulating people through mind games.

As soon as Obama came on the scene, the programming began. His face was plastered everywhere, like Mao’s. In his speeches, Obama lulled audiences with a melodious voice and feel-good phrases repeated over and over. And he began inciting people with his charming smile.

First, the vultures starting swooping down on Hillary. Obama chose not to call off the dogs.

Then thugs invaded caucuses. Again, silence.

Which led to vicious misogyny against Sarah Palin and threats on her life. From Obama: not a peep.

We even saw armed thugs at polling places. Ignored and not prosecuted by Obama’s attorney general.

The moment Obama became president, he upped the signals. At the Grant Park rally celebrating his victory, the entire family eerily chose to wear black and red, colors associated with communism and black nationalism. Obama’s first radio address was broadcast in the Arab world.

Obama returned Britain’s gift of a Winston Churchill bust while embracing dictators. He gave a white police officer a dressing down for doing his job, in effect calling the officer a racist.

Obama’s greatest magic trick? Brainwashing the masses to believe that racism is a greater danger than radical Islam, and that Obama himself is in constant peril.

Opposing health care means you oppose Obama. Oppose Obama and you are the enemy.

Thus, more and more people are finding themselves on the receiving end of a fist, figuratively or literally. After the White House released a directive for his followers to strike back hard, a frail, diabetic black man at a Town Hall was beaten up.

Even women can get slugged in the face. Obama signaled during the primary that women were fair game.

Obama and the left are making sure that there is an increasing number of persuadable people. By displacing workers, panicking business owners with draconian laws, and whipping up rage and paranoia, they amass more lackeys. And people go along with the programming because they know that, as with all cults, they’ll be ostracized if they balk.

The American hard left knows how to create a cult because it is a cult, one with a violent history. The Black Panthers, Symbionese Liberation Army, Weathermen, Black Muslims — all nefarious cults.

And lesson number one of cults: group members must have their spirits broken. The young Weathermen, for instance, were required to participate in forced wickedness, such as animal abuse. Patty Hearst morphed into bank robber Tania after weeks of isolation, rape, and beatings by the SLA. Huey P. Newton sent his Black Panthers to the hospital or to the grave if they didn’t practice total obedience.

Isn’t the left doing the same thing to the masses today, albeit in a more clandestine manner? Aren’t people’s spirits being broken by the helplessness and horror of Obama’s acting as our king, with little regard for the Constitution — of beholding our economy in free-fall and the world exploding in flames?

So what’s the endgame here?

The first goal is power. The left has an insatiable need to control every aspect of our lives.

But there’s a deeper reason, one much more insidious.

The left wants to tear Americans down. Just as the Weatherman did to those naïve lost kids, they want to break our spirits. This goal of degradation is more crucial than their one-world government.

The progressives want to turn us into them, to make us feel as deprived and depraved and deadened. It’s the only way that they can silence the roar of shame and self-loathing.

What they don’t understand is this: it’s not going to happen. There are too many of us who won’t be hypnotized, who have a light in us that will not be extinguished.

We see right through them. We know who they are: the most piteous of human beings, and the most dangerous. Men without a country, orphans far from home. The forsaken and disowned.

They’re “hungry ghosts,” to use a Tibetan phrase: tormented beings who are starving to death from an inner void that they cannot fill, no matter how much they try.

Mother Teresa was once asked how she coped with serving the poorest of the poor in Calcutta. She responded that what she saw in the cities of the United States was much more disturbing, because it was a “poverty of the spirit.”

Poverty of the spirit. No truer words can be spoken of the progressive left. And they want nothing more than impoverishing your spirit as well.

Did Maxine Waters just tell The Tea Party to go straight to hell?

BJ Downing

 “As far as I’m concerned the Tea party can go right straight to hell and I will help them get there,” said Maxine Waters and her audience of SEIU thugs agreed with her.

So much for Democratic civility!

Now what would happen if a Tea Party member told her and The Black caucus to go straight to hell followed by a direct threat to help them get there?

Let me guess — Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson et al.  along with a parade of every white guilt ridden liberal jackass would be out in the liberal media in 5 minutes screaming racist, Astroturf, low life but for the Dems, minorities  or the friggen black caucus to pull this crap is par for the course.

 

Hey Maxine and the black caucus and the purple shirts etc. etc. etc.  The Tea Party is not a political party. It is a group of American Citizens  who pay your damned salary and whose money runs this country and who owns this country and has a right to speak.  For you to tell any American Citizen or group to go to hell is bullshit lady! Just who do you think you are?

Maxine – You might not be “afraid ofanybody” but you sure as hell should be ashamed of yourself! What kind of a person tells American Citizens to go to hell and threatens to help them get there? Did you learn that in church or at your momma’s feet?

Kiss my ass Maxine! There are more of us than there are of you and we are not going to be intimidated by the likes of you either!

Europe to America: Voters are a multitude of fools; You’re idiots!

BJ Downing

I recently got an email with the following so called “BEST QUOTE OF THE DECADE – from the CZECH REPUBLIC” bashing the American people over our current POTUS.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools who made him their President.”

Well, I cannot say that I disagree but it reminds me of the last ‘BEST QUOTE OF THE DECADE’ that one from the Brits. Remember this?

 Brits to America: You’re Idiots!
Well, 51 percent of you, anyway.
By June Thomas Posted Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004, at 8:07 PM ET

Americans who think post-election anti-red-state recrimination is a U.S.-only phenomenon should check out the cover of Thursday’s Daily Mirror: Over a picture of President George W. Bush, the paper asked, “How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?” Inside, the left-leaning British tabloid headlined its editorial, “WAR MORE YEARS.” In a clear demonstration of the trans-Atlantic culture gap, the paper’s description of the president’s beliefs—clearly intended to strike Mirror readers as a radical agenda—is simply an accurate, if crude, précis of his platform: “Mr Bush opposes abortion and gay marriage, doesn’t give a stuff about the environment, is against gun control and believes troops should stay in Iraq for as long as it takes.”

Great quotes both – but- as far as I am concerned the best quote was written by one of our own when we formed this country long before we the people lost our marbles and sold our souls to one party or the other over a few radical issues none of us has any damned business dictating to the other of us!

“I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever, in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else, where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all.” ~~~ THOMAS JEFFERSON, letter to Francis Hopkinson, Mar. 13, 1789

Any given Election year a paltry few percent of fools ( last few elections were won by 51-53%) will vote for one side or another over some radical issue be it religious vs. Liberal  (abortion/gay rights) or Republican vs. Dem (Green vs. drill baby drill or gun control) issue. Issues which apparently are more important that the waste, fraud, and abuse going on under our very noses. They are draining us dry while they are getting rich and making their cronies rich.

Here is some interesting information: Our representatives are MILLIONAIRES

The current salary (2011) for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $174,000 per year.
Who are the wealthiest members of Congress? Here’s a look. Next
If you stayed up nights wondering whether members of Congress would be able to weather the Great Recession of the late 2000s, this bit of news should finally put your mind at ease.

Overall, members of Congress saw their personal wealth grow by more than 16 percent during the worst economic downturn in the United States since the Great Depression, according to financial disclosures submitted by lawmakers. See more: Even in Recession, Congress Pay Grew

The median personal wealth for members of Congress grew to $911,510 in 2009, up from $785,515 in 2008, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Nearly half of the members of Congress are millionaires.

We should be focusing on jobs, economy, energy independence, education, infrastructure, equal representation by women in our government, media bias, court reform, earmark reform, term limits, terrorism, immigration, voter fraud, caucus fraud, corruption and tax reform instead of the divisive issues.

While they keep us looking at those divisive issues that keep us at each other’s throats they are abrogating our very democracy and getting away with it. We are battling each other while they just spend our money to get elected and re-elected. They spend it to play golf and to fly around the world visiting dignitaries for a day then vacationing for the rest of the week with the family members they brought with them; they vacation and buy homes on tropical islands all on our dime. They exempt themselves from our laws and health care reforms. They give themselves raises while they ask the citizens to pay more in taxes, they preach tax reform but they intend (just like HC reform) to hold on to their own loopholes. They believe they are above the law and are blatant about it (Kerry and his R.I. Yacht scandal)

“The Boston Herald reported that the Massachusetts Democrat had berthed his yacht Isabel in Rhode Island and suggested he was seeking to avoid paying about $437,000 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of around $70,000 that would be levied if he berthed the vessel in Massachusetts. Rhode Island has no sales tax on yachts.”

The Republicans with their family values are repeatedly found short of family values too numerous to list here but we know what they are. Suffice it to say, both parties claim the other party does not suit our values and they are both right – NEITHER does! Both are corrupt! Both are lying through their teeth.

Both QUOTES OF THE DECADE are true, the one about fools voting for Obama and dummies voting for Bush. We are a nation of sheeple who are getting dumber and dumber every day and paying the dishonor to do so. The once great and proud America will fall like every great empire and like the great republic of Rome if we do not wake up soon and stop voting for a few issues, which both parties offer like carrots on a stick but never really deliver anyway but rather keep alive as bait to keep us hooked to their party.

WAKE UP.

BTW- I have no idea who really wrote the quote attributed to the CZECH’s – it doesn’t really matter  does it? Read instead our founders and our Constitution.

Mission Accomplished: Now on to an All- Star Birthday Bash for POTUS and Recess for Congress!

BettyJean Downing

The House of Representatives passed a deal claiming the United States was close to defaulting on its debts. As the bill made its way over to the Senate, the media and Democrats are railing against the influence the Tea Party had on the outcome. During the debate, some Republican freshman members were urging leaders not to make any concessions, and some felt any increase in the debt ceiling was out of the question. How will these new Tea Party members react to Speaker Boehner’s compromise? How will Americans react to Speaker Boehner’s compromise?

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) began selling his conference on the deal struck late Sunday during a call and slideshow presentation, assuring them

“there’s nothing in this framework that violates our principles.”

After the cave-in where both Republicans and Democrats put on the big show of — we will do it against our will to save the country– both stepped up with votes to spare to give the president enough money both  to get through the next election and for the cuts to be mostly back ended in 6 years after he is out of office.  I would say he got a great birthday gift from the two party system and we got screwed again.

Obama, before during and after the debt con job debacle continues to insists on tax hikes. Apparently, he and the Democrats believe tax revenues are in this package, regardless of the Republicans denial.  

“We can’t cut deficit with just spending cuts”.

Not even Shakespeare could come up with such a tragic plot complete with to foil the people into believing they were in danger and keeping us at the edge of our seats for weeks thinking we were at the precipice of destruction. Hell they even had the three credit agencies working this great scam against the people.

Echoed from Reid but also from every non-Tea Party politician from Congress and the White House :

 “This is our last, best chance to preserve the character and credit of this great nation.”  

I don’t believe we were ever in danger of default or of losing our credit rating – instead they were in danger of not getting another blank check and set about figuring out how to get us to give them more money without asking them to give up anything out of their pockets or bilking their special interests funds. They did it again — they took our money and turned us one against the other rather than against them and politics as usual. Our 87 newbies were not enough to get the job done – not this time – not yet!

Talking about our Tea Party Patriots – the people sent to Congress to get the job done- they tried and for their efforts they were demonized by both the media and the left. Vice President Biden’s team is denying he used the word “terrorist” to describe the Tea Party during a closed-door meeting with House Democrats angry about the debt ceiling deal.

“The word was used by several members of Congress,” said Biden spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff. “The vice president does not believe it’s an appropriate term in political discourse.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, called a press conference at noon on Aug. 2nd. and clearly stated  his displeasure with the Tea Party stating their presence is “Disconcerting”. He went on to explain contrary to the fact these folks were duly elected by the people that the 87 were not doing the people’s business using comments like

“all too soon we would be back in the midst of partisan wrangling and with our economy once again held prisoner by extremist Tea Party Republicans.”

It “is not fair to the American people, to hold out and say we won’t agree to raising the debt limit,” he said. He called the radical Republican approach “unfair” and “bizarro.”

Reid said in the end the Congress did its job coming together to do the people’s work and coming to a compromise but adding “This is NOT PERFECT … The vast majority of Americans think this is unfair…

Oh Harry, this was perfect – a perfect scam and at the next election ‘We the People’ will not forget. Just as the Tea Party gave the House a headache they will give the Senate a headache and this time I hope we roll enough of the old guard out to prevent the bi-partisan  trick you both pulled off this time.

We the people are not fooled we watched and we learned the game- we just need more of us then there are of you, this is going to catch up to you crooks—just give us time!

You were right in when you said  “The vast majority of Americans think this is unfair” and you were right when you said in the end the two parties came together to get the job done but w2hat we got was a bi-partisan con job.

So go get the month vacation you think you deserve- sleep well thinking you got away with yet another fast one. You and the other con men will pay for this in the end! All I can hope for is when ‘We the People’ do take back our country – the first cut is to your pensions after we fire your crooked asses for extortion!

Do you still want your medical care in the hands of this Government? REALLY?

If ObamaCare was in effect today, would surgery, dialysis and chemo also be held hostage to this debate?

Without taking sides, as an Independent- non partisan American Citizen alone, I shudder to think what the talking heads in Washington would be terrorizing us with if ObamaCare (The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)  the federal statute that was signed into United States law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010) were already in effect. Playing politics with our veteran’s payments, social security and debt would pale in comparison to the scare tactics these shameless charlatans would be using to win points for their respective parties. These guys are the ones that put us here in the first place without asking us for permission to do so and by sweetening the deal to special interests and now they want to offer us more of the same old politics as usual. How long will they play the same game the same way and expect us to fall for it as if it were anything new?

When social Security was implemented we were told – it was for our own good and they would take our money and put it into a lockbox. That money, wisely invested would be there when we needed it. Did I mention this is a paid insurance policy paid into by “We the People” and now raided by our servants? Now the lockbox has been broken into, the money spent on God knows what to God know who, many who did not totally invest.

We are held hostage to our returns while being told it is an ENTITLEMENT as if that is a nasty word. You are damned right – some of us ARE entitled to a return on our investment. Moreover – some recipients are not. Frankly, I am sick of politicians dipping into my savings to be philanthropic to the not so entitled.

Entitlements as used in this context of claim or right to as in  (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits) and Armed services salaries is the antithesis of entitled as used in the context of privileged which is the self yearly increased obscene paychecks and pensions our elected servants who  believe they and their families are ENTITLED to for life so long as they serve at least one term.

Remember the Weiner? http://www.smartmoney.com/retirement/planning/why-im-jealous-of-weiner-1308253690928/

Members of Congress are covered under the Federal Employee Retirement System, which features a pension-style plan at minimal cost to employees. They contribute less than 1% of pay, and contributions bear no relation to the benefits. Weiner, 46, has been a Congressman for 12 years and has a recent salary of $174,000 (standard for both the House and Senate). After leaving office he has a couple of choices. He can begin taking discounted pension payments of about $25,000 a year starting at age 56 or wait until age 62 and collect about $35,000 a year.

For the average retirement investor, that’s a benefit comparable to $1.2 million in the bank. With the 10-year Treasury yield at 2.9%, that’s how much it would take to produce a guaranteed income of $35,000 a year.

Sweet deal huh? WU just raped a contributor’s daughter- he is the one who dresses up as a tiger- wonder what he will rake in? But here is Obama, all over the bloody TV and on the radio and finally taking Prime Time TV to ask Americans to flood the telephone lines because if they – the people who had no say in ObamaCare- fail to bail his ass out …

President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.

“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News.

The Obama administration and many economists have warned of economic catastrophe if the United States does not raise the amount it is legally allowed to borrow by August 2. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20078789-503544.html

Our Veterans and servicemen who fought in wars they did not start but in which they never failed to risk their lives are also threatened. I have been saying for 20 some odd years now—or soldiers risk their lives for a pittance of what the thieves in Washington earn for fleecing us- THROW THE BUMS OUT!

“We cannot guarantee – if there were a default – that any specific bill would be paid,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said, seeking to leverage public pressure on negotiators from both sides who are headed back to the White House this afternoon. 

President Obama also raised the specter of short-changing recipients of federal benefits, telling CBS’s Scott Pelly in an interview that “there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it.” 

More than 80 million Americans who receive benefits payments from the government each month could be at risk, the Treasury Department said.  Most of those checks cover Social Security recipients, veterans and civil service retirees. 

Gee, why doesn’t he threaten to cut off the paychecks of 535 servants that have not done the damned job? Why doesn’t he ask the Liberal bleeding heart millionaires and billionaires who agree with him like Bill Maher, and all those Hollywood  stars and the rest of his Chicago mob to donate the tax dollars they all insists he legislate into law as tax hikes. Last I heard – there is no law preventing them from paying more taxes? Why don’t he and Bill Clinton who keep telling us they don’t need the money along with Kerry the Yacht defector kick in at higher tax rates voluntarily?

Let’s see all these Millionaire and Billionaire liberals making over $250,000.00 volunteer to pay at the higher tax rate? Come on put your money where your mouth is – or shut the hell up!

Back to my point, along comes Obama and ObamaCare, again we were told – it was for our own good…. The majority of Americans did not want it or ask for it and yet a single party shoved it down our throats. IMAGINE having your surgery or your dialysis or your chemo held hostage to this debate between the left and the right if ObamaCare were in effect today?  I don’t give a damned what side you care to take – if all goes as planned, ObamaCare will soon be in effect, this debt is still increasing with no solution in sight- the debate and the war between the parties will continue forever. Do you still want your medical care in the hands of the government, our government, this Government? REALLY?
