More buyers’ remorse from those that refused to do their homework. WE told you so. YOU didn’t listen, or check into the facts yourselves. Shame on you. Now America will pay a heavy price for your stupidity.

“I Did Not Vote to Lower My Standard of Living”

Michael Jones of PoliGazette voted twice for Barack Obama last year—in the primaries and in the general election—but he is one of a rapidly growing number of disillusioned moderates that is coming to regret his decision.

Here is a taste of his discontent:

Like many Americans last November, I voted for change. I had hope. I no longer have hope since the president I voted for never mentioned a fraction of the agenda he now espouses. I did not vote to lower my standard of living, humble as it may be. Nor did I ask to jump into the economic abyss in order to “save” the planet.

Every time I hear another Obama supporter-turned-opponent claim that they had no idea what Obama was going to do as President, I have to shake my head in amusement.

He won by lying. You lose by believing. This is a typical ploy of the Democrats. Claim that it is the top 1% of wage earners that they are going after and then stick it to the rest of us after they figure it’s been long enough, and raise taxes across the board.

That is all.

The 1% Myth and the Victimization of America
By Andrew Foy and Brenton Stransky

A common liberal argument aimed at America’s free market economy and reinforced in President Obama’s budget proposal A New Era of Responsibility is that, over the last 25 years, the rich have gotten richer while the poor have gotten poorer. While this assertion should be of concern to anyone interested in domestic and economic policy, a critical examination of the data reveals the claim to be almost certainly spurious and uncovers an even more interesting question — what is the motivation for the current administration to propagate such a claim?

The following chart, produced by Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez, and displayed in the President’s budget proposal, demonstrates that over the last 25 years, the share of income going to the top 1% has consistently increased and therefore, one must conclude the share going to everybody else has gotten smaller.

Simple analogy for you:

“ elitists and their media boosters actually think that if guns aren’t sold in the U.S. then the drug gangs in Chicago, or Mexico for that matter, will be disarmed. Such specious, juvenile arguments ignore the simple analogy that the sale of cocaine is illegal in all 50 states and Mexico and yet those same gangs seem to possess large quantities of same.”

Yeah. Ban guns and drugs. Let’s see who has both in the end. No thanks.

Doing Nothing to Criminals
By Jeff Soyer

Thomas Sowell, one of the brighter conservative pundits, has an editorial today about how the United Nations basically accomplishes nothing. Well, we know that. Anyway, part of his latest piece addresses the sorry state of criminal control in Great Britain and I thought you might enjoy it:

A study in Britain found that, among criminals caught, convicted and sentenced, only 7 percent of these sentences involved being put behind bars. Most of what is done in the other 93 percent of the cases amounts to virtually nothing.

People convicted of burglary in Britain are seldom jailed. For this and many other crimes, they will get a stern talking to. And, if they do it again, they will get an even sterner talking to.

Despite Dick Cheney’s switch to the dark side of gay marriage, the GOP needs to stand strong on that issue. The majority of America supports marriage between a man and a woman, including this jacked up state. Our vote proved that. And before you say it, I am not homophobic. My step brother is a homo and I find him interesting, disturbed, but interesting and treat him with respect. I call him “bro” just like I do my real brother. He doesn’t try to push his sexual proclivities at me, or my family, which works for me. What he does with his life is his choice, as is what I do, but I am not trying to force you to change. The homo mafia is trying to force America to change to something that it doesn’t want.

Marriage defined in any other way results in a huge problem in the society that adopts the practice. Look at Europe. It is dying a slow and ugly death. The birth rate is too low to repopulate their countries, so they import Muslims at their own peril. I know that’s a side track, but it is a fact.

Supporting the nuclear family of a father and mother raising their children is the very foundation of society. Whether you believe in the Bible, or not, it is a fact that marriage and reproduction is the key to human survival. It is also the key to keeping society on path that is moral and not deviant by nature. Like it or not, homosexuality is deviant behavior. It is in no way normal. Letting the homo mafia dictate their agenda to the rest of America and sitting by idly, is a recipe for disaster. Stand up to them and let them know that it is deviant behavior and that our children are more important than their wants.

Restoring America’s Marriages
by Harry R. Jackson, Jr.

Last week marked a nadir in the battle for biblical marriage. Two huge events occurred. First, former VP Dick Cheney voiced his support for same-sex marriage. Second, New Hampshire became the sixth state in the Union to legalize gay marriage. Despite these two events, nationalizing same-sex marriage is absolutely not inevitable. Gay marriage proponents are only too aware that the recent California Supreme Court ruling that the 2008 Proposition 8 victory will stand guarantees that a fresh round of marriage amendments, initiatives, and referendums will undoubtedly be levied in the states that have scored temporary victories for same-sex marriage.

And now the lies. Obama and Biden are out stumping their lies and the media are swallowing them whole. Not just the lies. If anyone in the Bush administration had tried this BS the press would have been all over them. Transparency is how well you tell a lie in this administration.

The Media Fall for Phony ‘Jobs’ Claims
The Obama Numbers Are Pure Fiction.
By WILLIAM MCGURN

Tony Fratto is envious.

Mr. Fratto was a colleague of mine in the Bush administration, and as a senior member of the White House communications shop, he knows just how difficult it can be to deal with a press corps skeptical about presidential economic claims. It now appears, however, that Mr. Fratto’s problem was that he simply lacked the magic words — jobs “saved or created.”

“Saved or created” has become the signature phrase for Barack Obama as he describes what his stimulus is doing for American jobs. His latest invocation came yesterday, when the president declared that the stimulus had already saved or created at least 150,000 American jobs — and announced he was ramping up some of the stimulus spending so he could “save or create” an additional 600,000 jobs this summer. These numbers come in the context of an earlier Obama promise that his recovery plan will “save or create three to four million jobs over the next two years.”

He’s not the only one that says Teh One has failed, he’s just one of the bigger names to do so.

Obama is a complete failure. He failed before he even started. But now that he’s been in office for a bit, it’s totally obvious that he has failed miserably on the economy and will continue to try and lie to the American people. The morons on the left will continue to try and run interference, but the cat is out of the bag…

Kudos to Jon Voight for standing up and pointing out the obvious; Obama sucks and is bad for America. At least there are still a few in Hollyweird that have some sense.

Gingrich at Republican Fundraiser Says Obama’s ‘Already Failed’
By Heidi Przybyla

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Barack Obama’s plan to fix the economy through stimulus spending and government intervention to boost companies like General Motors Corp. has “already failed.”

Gingrich was the keynote speaker at a fundraising dinner for the Republican House and Senate campaign committees, filling a role President George W. Bush had served for the past eight years.

“Bureaucrats managing companies does not work, politicians dominating the economy does not work,” Gingrich told about 2,000 Republicans who attended the event at the Washington Convention Center last night.
