It’s stupid assholes like this that are screwing up this country. The morons on the left all agree with this idiot, I’m sure.

STOP.SPENDING.MORONS.

Brain Dead Dem Congressman Thinks Spending is Too Low

By Daniel Horowitz

In case you were wondering why we are doing nothing to slow our inexorable march towards Greek-style insolvency, look no further than those who are vested with the power of the purse string.  Yesterday, Congressman Rush Holt (D-NJ) suggested that we are not spending enough “to invest in research and development, education and infrastructure that would allow America to compete in this increasingly global economy.”  He proved his assertion by comparing our deficits to….the WWII era!

According to the Office of Management and Budget, America’s deficits were more than twice as large in the 1940s as they are today. In 1943, the deficit was 30 percent of our economy’s size; in 1944, it was 23 percent. Today, it is less than 9 percent. As for publicly held debt, it was significantly larger as a share of our economy in 1944 than it is today.

Hmmm, what do you think was going on during 1943-1944?  Oh yes, that WWII thing.

Little has changed in the way Americans respond to certain words. I think their skewed on the “progressive” word. Here’s the breakdown: 

Group Sample Size Plus or minus …
Total sample 1,521   3.5 percentage points
Republicans 380       6.5 percentage points
Democrats 489          5.5 percentage points
Independents 569     5.0 percentage points

From the Pew Research Center:

Little Change in Public’s Response to ‘Capitalism,’ ‘Socialism’

A Political Rhetoric Test

The recent Occupy Wall Street protests have focused public attention on what organizers see as the excesses of America’s free market system, but perceptions of capitalism – and even of socialism – have changed little since early 2010 despite the recent tumult.

The American public’s take on capitalism remains mixed, with just slightly more saying they have a positive (50%) than a negative (40%) reaction to the term. That’s largely unchanged from a 52% to 37% balance of opinion in April 2010.

This is scary. America is doomed.

This is an assault on free speech through the back door of misguided legislation, or maybe it really was the intent all along. Either way, SOPA is going to kill the internet as we know it, if it is allowed to move through the swamp formerly  formally known as Congress.

Write your moron in Congress and the Senate. The Senate’s version is PIPA.

From Prison Planet:

SOPA: Endgame Is Total Internet Censorship

The Stop Online Piracy Act is not intended to make the internet more secure or even to protect copyrighted material. Its sole purpose is to codify First amendment killing actions already being undertaken by an out of control federal government.

Media talking heads and bloggers alike continue to debate the technicalities of the legislation, however, it is clear that SOPA and PIPA, (Protecting IP Act) the Senate version of the bill, form a double pronged attack on the free and open internet. The bills constitute weapons of mass destruction in the infowar, a huge leap forward for the long running agenda to completely re-structure and centralize the internet under government control.

As detailed in depth in an excellent article today in The Globe and Mail, should the legislation be signed into law in January, it will provide the U.S. government, through the office of the Attorney General, the power to pursue court orders against any site believed to be engaging in or ‘facilitating’ ‘copyright infringement’. The problem being that the bill’s definition of such terms is so broad that entire web sites could come under threat of being effectively seized and shut down for merely displaying one offending hyperlink.

Some felonies under SOPA, such as “streaming copyrighted content” – again the terminology is vague at best – carry a five-year prison sentence.

Never Yet Melted has an image of this on their sight. I just typed it out so it’s easier to read.

The budget explained in simple English.

I love it when complex things are simplified so that we can all understand.

  • United States tax revenue:
  • $2,170,000,000,000
  • Fed budget:
  • $3,820,000,000,000
  • New debt:
  •  $1,650,000,000,000
  • National debt:
  • $14,271,000,000,000
  • Recent budget cut:
  • $38,500,000,000

Now, remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget.

  • Annual family income:
  • $21,700
  • Money the family spent:
  • $38,200
  • New debt on the credit card:
  • $16,500
  • Outstanding balance on credit card:
  • $142,710
  • Total budget cuts which some politicians are proud about:
  • $385.

Stop the insanity now. Vote them out and demand a balanced budget.

I just read this over at Mountain Republic’s site.

This is some serious shit. Go read it.

The affects of Agent Orange after all these years is still prevalent in Vietnam. Now they want to use one of the chemicals that made up 50% of the Agent Orange that was used in Vietnam on crops here in America. This is utter madness.

Why the hell aren’t more people pissed off about this? I figure it’s due to the fact that the media (MSM) is stone silent on it.

America’s Farmlands to be Carpet-Bombed with Vietnam-era Agent Orange Chemical

by Mike Adams

A key chemical of one of the most horrifying elements of the Vietnam War — Agent Orange — may soon be unleashed on America’s farmlands. Considered by world nations to be a “Weapon of Mass Destruction” (WMD), Agent Orange was dropped in the millions of gallons on civilian populations during the Vietnam War in order to destroy foliage and poison North Vietnamese soldiers. The former president of the Vietnamese Red Cross, Professor Nhan, described it as, “…a massive violation of human rights of the civilian population, and a weapon of mass destruction.”

Go read it all.

 

Just ask him.

Even he admits it to that lefty troll Barbara Walters.

If he opens his mouth, it is in all likelihood, a lie.

For those Americans who were still unsure whether Barack Obama really does lack authenticity, the President has finally come clean and confirmed that he does indeed have a tendency to lie.

Prior to Christmas, courtesy of Barbara Walters and the ABC News program 20/20, President Obama presented the nation with an important pre-2012 election gift. Answering questions from the probing “Proust Questionnaire,” the President admitted that in addition to how he views the rest of America, he too is “a little bit lazy,” and on occasion exhibits a predisposition to fudge the truth.

Hearkening back to the 2008 presidential campaign, it was Senator John McCain that first made an insightful statement about presidential hopeful Barack Obama. At the time, the GOP candidate addressed Obama’s accusation that McCain had opposed regulation to avert the housing bubble crisis by pointing out: “I guess he believes if a lie is big enough and repeated often enough it will be believed.”

Obviously, McCain’s warning about Obama’s dishonesty did not deter the American public from putting the less-than-truthful Illinois senator in the White House. John McCain lost the election, but before he did he asked a question that every American should still be asking: “Who is the real Barack Obama?”
