Goodbye Fed?

5.1 Trillion dollars our our national debt- almost half - is owed to the Federal Reserve. See chart below:

The big blue section on the left is the Fed's slice of America's public debt.

5.1 trillion dollars of debt, owed to a mostly overseas owned private corporation.

Neither Obama nor Congress can control - or even examine - the fed and its operation. This is a situation that Obama and his fellow Progressives will not tolerate.

If Obama nationalizes the Fed, 5.1 trillion dollars of our debt vanishes.

Nobody is talking about it, but I'll bet the Fed - as a privatley owned corporation - is not long for this world.

Chelsea Clinton's recent engagement to Jewish banker Marc Mezvinsky, who works for Goldman Sachs, and Al Gore's daughter marrying the grandson of Jewish banker, Jacob Schiff, are just reminders that at least two known American politcial families intend to keep on the good side of those who control the Federal Reserve... And America's money.

Let's all hope that the Clintons and the Gores lose their bet.

Israel On The Chopping Block

Hillary Clinton, US secretary of state, on Monday warned Israel that its survival could be in jeopardy unless it reached a peace deal with the Palestinians.

The Obama administration shifted this week from red hot anger at Benjamin Netanyahu to an icier suspicion toward the Israeli Prime Minister...

We are witnessing another one of those "unanticipated consequences". The election of Obama as president may be the undoing of Israel, since Obama has no interest in Israel's survival.

Israel's long and bloody romp through Palestine may be coming to an end. If Benjamin Netanyahu and his supporters do not understand that America's blind and undying support is coming to an end, they may lose everything.

The American Congress - Israel's longtime number one supporter - has abrogated it's power and authority to Obama. And Obama doesn't give a damn about Israel.

News To Me...

Did you Know that Toshiba - A Japanese company - now owns Westinghouse?

How many other grand old American firms - with historical American backgrounds - Are no longer owned by Americans? Just how much of us has been sold out?

Remember... These foreign-owned American firms may employ some Americans, but all the profit goes overseas and is lost forever to us.

Thanks to our bought-out federal government.

No Responsibility, No cost

A teenager in Seattle gets an abortion, sponsored and promoted by her high school clinic , and the parents are never told.

They told her that if she concealed it from her family, that it (the abortion) would be free of charge and no financial responsibility.

Mind boggling.

What kind of demented human being promotes this kind of conduct?

Whoever - and whatever - they are, they should be immediately removed from society and deported to an isolated island, a place where their insane activities can only damage themselves.

This is just a glimpse of the victorious Progressives new world we are entering.

And So It Begins...

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- Indoor tanning salons will charge customers a 10 percent tax beginning today in just one of the changes Americans will see as a result of the U.S. health-care overhaul signed into law by President Barack Obama.

Less Politics, More Of Anything Else

Sitting President Barak Obama has now signed into law the 2,400 page bill that will do what he promised: Fundamentally change America.

We know what he wants to change it from... A Constitutional Republic. But we still have no idea what he is changing it into.

This 2,400 page bill that Obama, Pelosi and Reid fought so hard for, made so many back room deals for, made so many bribes for, certainly contains the rule changes they desperately needed to fulfill their hundred-year-old Progressive dream.

We all - as time goes by - will learn of the things in those 2,400 pages that has nothing to do with health care, the things that no one in the media, not even the likes of Rush or Glen Beck would tell us of, the things that will rebuild America into a place far different than the America we have known.

Not overnight. Not that fast. That would be too alarming. But little by little, our new America and its new masters will be revealed.

And by the time the entire picture comes into focus it will be far too late for protest.

So it's a done deal.

The government controlled, Socialistic America so desired by the Progressives is upon us. No more need to fight the coming change, it has arrived. Just every now and again, I may mention a thing or two of the new rules and the new framework as they are exposed to the light of day and put into effect.

Many States are now lining up to sue the Federal Government, but don't be fooled. They will not sue over the provisions in this bill that will "fundamentally change America", but over the requirement that all citizens buy life insurance or be heavily fined repeatedly, year after year. Such a suit will take a long time, only to be declared either "frivolous" or "legal under the Constitution" by such people as that "wise Latina woman" on the Supreme Court bench. She will indeed do what is expected of her by the man who put her where she is, our illegitimate president, registered Indonesian citizen Barry Sotero.

Come November, if elections are actually held, the Republicans may indeed reclaim the House, perhaps even the Senate. They they will change nothing. If you need any proof of that, just look back at what they did to us under the flawed presidency of George Bush.

That's all the proof you need.

Get Ready, Comrade

Tomorrow is the vote on a bill that will bury our Constitutional America and usher in a new nation - unidentifiable at this time - but no longer America.

Many are celebrating the sunrise of this world-changing event, while most Americans are not even aware they are about to lose everything their predecessors created, everything our forefathers fought and died for.

Affirmative action and political correctness has put countless unqualified minorities into positions of authority everywhere in federal and State government, incompetents who have tailored our rules and regulations to provide advantage to themselves alone.

You see this incompetence everywhere. In Washington and across America, where these buffoons cannot cope with the complexities of government and do not care: In schools, where minority teachers cannot teach or speak proper English and have no desire to do so: In colleges, where minorities are receiving once valuable degrees that are now worthless.

Sadly, these incompetents that are in charge now have been further empowered and emboldened by one of their own, the election of an illegitimate president, Barry Sotero, more lately referred to as Barak Obama. Illegitimacy seems a common thread amongst some of these minorities, almost a racial trademark in America.

On top of this - but better hidden - are the twenty some million Mexicans intent on stealing back vast parts of the American southwest, and the 400 some Indian "nations" festering in America, wanting to take back the rest.

Add to this mix of brewing disaster the still suppressed news about all the black-on-white crime rampant everywhere, the destruction of the dollar, the loss of our industrial base, our factories and jobs given away by the federal government to overseas competitors, and what you end up with is the inevitable war that will see a million people dead the first twenty-four hours.

And who will there be to say we did not bring it upon ourselves?

Barak Obama is a puppet in the hands of the Communists, Progressives, Marxists and Socialists he has surrounded himself with. He is a smooth-talking self-serving egotist that will be remembered as the greatest fool in history.

He and his cohorts are stealing our government, our nation and our freedom. One must wonder if they are ready to pay the upcoming bill for their treason.

Should this war of racial confrontation erupt, neither The whites, blacks nor Mexicans will win it.

The Communists will.

Just like Nikita Khrushchev claimed a few years ago.

Can You Believe This?

Guess what may be under your hood:

More than 100 drivers in Austin, Texas found their cars disabled or the horns honking out of control, after an intruder ran amok in a web-based vehicle-immobilization system normally used to get the attention of consumers delinquent in their auto payments.

Yup... A "web-based vehicle-immobilization system", a little black box that allows the dealer to disable your car.

Big brother?

In spades, my friends.

Top Ally?

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration's fierce denunciation of Israel last week has ignited a firestorm in Congress and among powerful pro-Israel interest groups who say the criticism of America's top Mideast ally was misplaced.

That's a statement full of deception:

It was not a "fierce denunciation". It was - in reality - yet another request that Israel quit building Jewish settlements on Palestinian land.

It did not "ignite a firestorm in Congress". It ignited a firestorm amongst the avid Israeli supporters in Congress. Big difference.

It was not misplaced "criticism of America's top Mideast ally". Again, it was a request to stop intruding into Palestinian territory by constructing illegal settlements.

The construction of "settlements" are one reason no "peace in our time" is possible.

Americans, particularly Christian Americans, need to realize that toady's Israel is not an Ally, not a friend. Today's Israel exists only to serve itself. Today's Israelites see America only as a source of money and support. It is not the Israel supposedly promised by God in the Old Testament. That Israel came and went long ago.

It is patently obvious that the leaders of today's Israel have no intention of making peace with any of it's neighbors that occupy what they consider to be a part of ancient Israel.

Well, there's a lot of Mexicans who intend to re-take parts of the United States that they believe to be a part of Old Mexico.

There's a lot of American Indians who think they have the right to retake most of today's America, based on claims they have ginned up about scared hunting grounds and the like.

Are the Jews in Israel any different than the Mexicans or the Indians in America?


What if the Mexicans and the Indians gin up stories about how God has promised to help them recover all those "lost" lands? And the Russians and Chinese decide to support them and their claims? Supplying them with fighter aircraft, tanks, advanced weapons and money... Lots of money?

Can't happen in America?

Look around you, swifty. The Progressives and the Jews in Washington are not the only groups intent on stealing your future.

He Gets My Vote

Bill Cosby has decided to become a write-in candidiate for president in 2012.

Here is his platform:

(1). Any use of the phrase: 'Press 1 for English' is immediately banned. English is the official language; speak it or wait outside of our borders until you can.

(2). We will immediately go into a two year isolationist attitude in order to straighten out the greedy big business posture in this country. America will allow NO imports, and we'll do no exports. We will use the 'Wal-Mart 's policy, 'If we ain't got it, you don't need it.' We'll make it here and sell it here!

(3). When imports are allowed, there will be a 100% import tax on it coming in here.

(4). All retired military personnel will be required to man one of the many observation towers located on the southern border of the United States (six month tour). They will be under strict orders not to fire on SOUTHBOUND aliens.

(5). Social Security will immediately return to its original state. If you didn't put nuttin in, you ain't gettin nuttin out. Neither the President nor any other politician will be able to touch it.

(6). Welfare. -- Checks will be handed out on Fridays, at the end of the 40 hour school week, the successful completion of a urinalysis test for drugs, and passing grades.

(7). Professional Athletes -- Steroids? The FIRST time you check positive you're banned from sports ... for life.

(8). Crime -- We will adopt the Turkish method, i.e., the first time you steal, you lose your right hand. There is no more 'life sentences'. If convicted of murder, you will be put to death by the same method you chose for the victim you killed: gun, knife, strangulation, etc.

(9). One export of ours will be allowed: wheat; because the world needs to eat.. However, a bushel of wheat will be the exact price of a barrel of oil.

(10). All foreign aid, using American taxpayer money, will immediately cease and the saved money will help to pay off the national debt and, ultimately, lower taxes. When disasters occur around the world, we'll ask The American People if they want to donate to a disaster fund, and each citizen can make the decision as to whether, or not, it's a worthy cause.

(11). The Pledge of Allegiance will be said every day at school and every day in Congress.

(12). The National Anthem will be played at all appropriate ceremonies, sporting events, outings, etc.

My apology is offered if I've stepped on anyone's toes .... nevertheless.....


Sincerely, Bill Cosby

Choices And Consequences

Folks love their trees. Especially the folks that live in New England. But - like us - they also love their modern lifestyles, made easy by the countless electrical devices we all use and rely on.

Then along comes mother nature and one of her storms. People by the hundreds of thousands lose electrical service, while the headlines scream how the wind brought down the power lines.

Wait a minute... We have straight line winds out here in Texas of 70-80-90mph or more. Trees go down, but power lines do not.

Unless a tree is blown over on them.

So that's the real problem, people that have 100-year-old trees in their yards and refuse to remove them when they start encroaching on the power lines.

It's a personal choice, one they hope not to have to pay the piper for. The trees are beautiful, increase property values, provide shade in summer, all manner of nice stuff. But along with all that comes the remote chance that one day a tree will come through your roof or take down your power lines.

If you have made the choice to keep your trees - the ones encroaching on the power lines - And if you lose power during a winter storm that blew down all those pretty trees, don't come whining to the rest of us about unfair it all is.

99 out of a 100 times(Totally unscientific estimate) when the wind knocks out power lines, it's because the wind pushed over a tree onto the power lines.

I have overhead power lines when I live. The only thing growing under them is grass. I intend to keep it that way.

And it we get a wind that's powerful enough to knock out those power lines - like a rather typical Texas tornado - falling trees will be the least of my worries.

Ohhhhhh.... SCARY!

But... but... It looks so real!

A gun rights organization has launched a Freedom of Information request following a decision by federal Customs and Border Protection agents to seize a shipment of toy pellet guns and a determination by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that they could be converted into machine guns so they must be destroyed.

Government agencies have explained that the Airsoft toys, made of a soft pot metal and lacking a firing mechanism, easily could be converted into a true weapon capable of automatic fire.

"Our firearms technology branch classified this as a machine gun," BATFE Special Agent Kelvin Crenshaw said in a report assembled by Gun Owners of America. "With minimal work it could be converted to a machine gun."

"With minimal work". He's either got to be joking or is just plain ignorant and should not be employed where he is.

Imagine trying to fire an AR-15 round in a barrel made of some sort of base metal.

Jason Jonah of Andy and Dax Surplus said:

it looks like a gun, but the insides are completely different, the design is different, and the material it's made of is just not strong enough to fire real ammunition.

If somebody tried to fire real ammunition, it mostly likely would blow up the toy.

The gun would come apart and the pieces fly at you. If it weren't the ATF making these accusations, I'd laugh, but they must be taking it seriously. In all my years, I've never had anyone talk – even laughingly – about changing these into weapons.

Jopnah said it would be about as easy to convert an Airsoft into a real weapon as transforming "your Cuisinart or any other electrical appliance into a real gun.

For starters, you would need to buy a real barrel, a real receiver and firing mechanism, a real magazine clip and a stock to fit the receiver. About the only thing you could re-use from this toy is the box it came in. Just the hydraulic buffer in a real AR-15 costs $129.95.

But it looks so real! That's what must have the deciding factor in the BATFE's firearms technology branch's decision to classify this toy as a REAL machine gun.

Time to clean house in that particular BATFE branch and replace the resident idiots with knowledgeable people... If possible. People who actually know what a hydraulic buffer is.

left click to enlarge

See the gun Jessica is holding in the above picture? I made it in my workshop from PVC pipe, wood and plastic sheeting. I hope the BATFE's firearms technology branch never learns of it... Jessica and I will be in serious trouble.

It's not nearly as detailed as an Airsoft AR-15, it's just a crude model of a computer game weapon built for a photo shoot. But it looks scary!

The Gun Is Mightier Than The Textbook

What is it we don't know about all this?

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) intends to purchase twenty-seven (27):

REMINGTON BRAND MODEL 870 POLICE 12/14P MOD GRWC XS4 KXCS SF. RAMAC #24587 GAUGE: 12 BARREL: 14" - PARKERIZED CHOKE: MODIFIED SIGHTS: GHOST RING REAR WILSON COMBAT; FRONT - XS CONTOUR BEAD SIGHT STOCK: KNOXX REDUCE RECOIL ADJUSTABLE STOCK FORE-END: SPEEDFEED SPORT-SOLID - 14" LOP are designated as the only shotguns authorized for ED based on compatibility with ED existing shotgun inventory, certified armor and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.

They may not know how to teach, but they do know their shotguns. These guns are full bore riot weapons.

Is this a joke? The Department of Education has certified armor and combat training protocol? What the hell for?

For whatever reason, they are preparing themselves for the future, a future they are obviously terrified of.

I always thought they were supposed to be preparing our children for the future.

Silly me.


I forgot to ask: What authorizes the Department of Education to create its own private army of armed agents?

I have a thought... Maybe this is a part of arming Obama's national "Civilian" Force that he talked of during the campaign? You know, the one that needs to be just as well funded, as well armed as the United States army? And under the exclusive control of the president?

Not Worth His Salt

Salt, a deadly and still uncontrolled substance....

In the glory days of Rome, many soldiers were paid with salt. Real salt. It was known then that salt was so important in our diet that it was used as currency.

Thus arose the old saying of a man being "worth his salt".

Now we have a New york politician, Assemblyman Felix Ortiz , D-Brooklyn, introducing a bill to ban salt use in restaurants.

In part, the bill states:

No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises...

Look it up if you like, it's bill A. 10129.

There would be a fine of $1,000 for each violation.

"Could I have some salt on my french fires?"

"Of course... that'll be an extra $1,000."

Insane. We would all die without salt.

We Could all die from too much salt also. Or too much water. Or too much anything.

We would die from too much water? BAN WATER!

Now, I know New Yorkers are usually to busy being New Yorkers to pay attention, or trying to get their turn in the Cash Cab, but banning salt - a vital and critical part of diet - should wake up a few of them, at least enough to toss Felix right out of office.

No city, even Brooklyn, should have a man as ignorant as Felix Ortiz making any sort of decisions for them.

This is just another of those progressive "baby" steps to eventually control everything, including what we all eat. After all, progressives like Hillary and Nancy truly believe that we citizens are just too stupid to know what's really good for us.

But they know... They know. Ask them. Ask Felix.

Let 'Em Sink

Pay the piper time:

SPRINGFIELD — - Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday unveiled a caustic budget plan that would borrow billions of dollars to stay afloat and push even more debt down the road, hoping to persuade leery lawmakers to instead raise taxes in an election year.

Quinn aides warned the plan would cost some 13,000 teachers and staff their jobs, cut off poor seniors from help in paying for costly prescriptions and shut down some health care programs for the indigent. But even after about $2 billion in cuts, the state would still be $11 billion in the hole.

13,000 teachers will lose their jobs?

HOO-RAH! It's the damned teachers and the NEA that have torpedoed this nation by dumbing down our kids for two generations.

Illinois could take those 13,000 progressive turncoats out to the middle of Lake Michigan and leave them there on rafts made from today's crummy text books. If any of those "teachers" made it ashore, then we'd know those textbooks were at least good for something.

Note how that idiot governor only wants to raise taxes? How about cutting spending also?

It will take both to keep the state from insolvency.

Unintended Consequences

The morons in our federal government are levying heavy fines to airlines that have planes sitting on the runways too long.


Passengers may soon be seeing more cancellations on airport departure boards.

Several airlines, including Fort Worth-based American and Houston-based Continental, say they will cancel flights rather than risk paying stiff penalties for delaying passengers on the runway.

Continental's CEO told investors Tuesday that the airline will opt to cancel flights rather than chance being fined.

These knee-jerk bureaucrats and politicians. All they do - ever - is react to a situation... And never think it through.

But I assume too much. To conclude that a federal bureaucrat can actually think ahead - to anticipate negative consequences for their half-baked ideas - is a bridge too far.

Tuesday, March 09, 2010


Speaker Nancy Pelosi delivered a speech this morning(3-09-2010) at the 2010 Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties (NACo).

In this speech she says(speaking of the healthcare takeover):

We have to pass this bill so that you can find out what's in it.

No no no no no no no no....

I can't believe what this woman will try or say to get this 2,400 page nightmare passed.

Read the damn thing first... All of it. Let's see what's in it... All of it. Then we'll talk about passing it or not.

Pass first, read later? This woman is crazy... Really.

Earth's Latest Portrait

Using a collection of satellite images, scientists painstakingly stitched together months of observations to create a montage which shows the surface of the continents and oceans in stunning detail.

Nice picture.

But I have another one of those silly questions:

If this is a "montage" painstakingly stitched together over several months, how did they manage to get all those clouds to stay in exactly the same place during all those months of picture taking?

Seems to me that - in order to get a photograph of earth with all the clouds appearing to have been taken by a single snapshot, it would have to be a single snapshot.

So what did NASA do? Take a single snapshot of all the clouds and then superimpose it over their painstakingly stitched together montage of earth?

I suspect that whoever wrote this article - or whoever released it for public consumption - didn't get the story quite right.

Pass The Bottle

Jeez, this is just great:

Barack Obama should not only try harder to kick his smoking habit, his team of doctors warned, but they also recommended 'moderation of alcohol intake.

"Recommended moderation of alcohol intake".

Reading between the lines says thus guy is hitting the bottle too much.

Just what we need in a world chomping at the bit to do us in... A president fuzzy with unmoderated alcohol intake.

He can't control his wants and desires enough to quit smoking. What makes his doctors think he'll lighten up on the booze?

I would not be at all surprised to learn he's like Clinton was with the ladies...

Smoking, boozing, womanizing, a real party animal.

What the hell is next with this guy?

The Real Test

About those Second Amendment Rights:

Otis McDonald, 76, is afraid for his life in his crime-saturated Chicago neighborhood and he is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn his city's strict ban on handguns in the home.

The Supreme Court.

Now we get to see just where that "wise Latina" stands. Being female - and a minority - makes me think she will not want anybody owning one of those "dangerous" pistols.

We'll see...
