Don’t Get Bern’d

Bernie Sanders is running a radio spot in Maryland where he talks about the big banks. He claims those banks are responsible (their irresponsible polices and lending practices) for the economic downturn in 2008, the worst since the Great Depression. He says they were deemed too big to fail so they received taxpayer bailouts and now many of them are even bigger than they were when they were too big to fail.

Bernie vows that he will break up the banks and he will make them follow the rules and ensure they pay their fair share.

As an aside, Bernie loves to talk about people paying their fair share but he wrote off over $60,000 on his taxes and paid an effective rate around 13%. He used all the methods he rails against to ensure he paid lower taxes. If taxes are so wonderful, as he claims, then why does he take all the deductions? Shouldn’t he practice what he wants to put in place?

Bernie is spewing the old Democrat line about the banks causing the problem. The real reason we had an economic collapse is that Democrats, like Bernie, forced banks to give mortgages to people who could not possibly pay them. He and others in his party forced the banks to lend the money and the banks bundled those loans and sold them. When all these unworthy debtors failed to pay the mortgages the banks were forced to give the system went belly-up. It statred with the Community Reinvestment Act under Jimmy Carter.

George Bush warned at least a dozen times that the system was in danger because of it but Democrat after Democrat testified that the system was sound.

Then in 2008 it collapsed and the Democrats started blaming the banks. Those banks, by the way, were forced to take bailouts. Yes, the government forced banks to take the money whether they needed it or not.

People like Sanders are telling lies and playing the typical Wall Street and banks are bad game to gin up voters. Bernie is pushing even more spending that we can’t afford (free college blah, blah) and that will result in another economic time bomb.

The system is falling apart because of liberal/progressive/socialist policies that Bernie is all too happy to push.

We do not need this joker running the country.

We also do not need Monica Lewinsky’s ex boyfriend’s wife running it either.

Both of them are part of the problem. They are the reason we had a collapse, no matter what lies they tell.

So ignore Bernie and what’s her name and vote for someone who can clean up the mess created by liberals.

Cave canem!

Flea Party Or TEA Party

The TEA Party has been around for a few years and in all the events that it has been involved not one person has been arrested. Over 700 Socialist lefties have been arrested in New York since the occupy Wall Street flash mobs broke out. Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and many other Democrats support the law breakers even though these very people have condemned the TEA Party as un-American. To this day people like Nancy Pelosi tell lies and carry myths about the TEA Party (the use of the N word and spitting on members of Congress are LIES that are continued by the left) while ignoring the actual disgusting behavior of these morons in New York and their spinoff flash mob gatherings around the country.

We have news today that some left wing protesters in Washington DC entered the Senate Hart Office Building and caused problems leading to the arrest of some who refused to “cooperate with police.”

When did the TEA Party ever do this?

Funny thing that the Senate Office building, a building that belongs to the people, has police officers who arrest those who fail to conform while the Mayor of New York invites the OWS morons to stay and disrupt private enterprise as long as they want. Funny how the people that Pelosi and Obama support acting like pigs in New York are not welcome in the buildings in DC.

Why is it that the buildings in DC are protected by police who keep people from engaging in the very acts Obama and Pelosi support in New York?

Pelosi stood in solidarity with the people who occupied the government buildings in Wisconsin? Why wouldn’t she encourage that behavior at the Hart building? She and the other leaders should call the police and tell them to leave the protesters alone.

The dirty, smelly, non showering flea bags are supported by the Democrats while the clean and peaceful TEA Party is lied about and called un-American.

America, you have a choice. The Flea Party or the TEA Party.

We already know who the Democrats have chosen…

Cave canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

Harry Reid Sexes Up The Senate

No one in his right mind thinks of sex and soon to be FORMER Senator Harry Reid but Reid introduced sex into the debate on Wall Street reform. The Democrats, who get more money from Wall Street than Republicans, want to impose restrictions on Wall Street to keep another meltdown from happening and to keep the taxpayer from paying for more bailouts. The bill will not do that but that will not stop the Democrats.

Yes, the people who put the rules that caused the meltdown in place are making more rules.

Of course the left likes to paint Republicans as being in the pockets of the Wall Street executives. Sure, there are some but Wall Street is deeper in the pockets of Democrats.

Harry Reid tried to paint the Republicans as being in bed with Wall Street:

Reid charged that Republicans are stalling action on a Wall Street reform bill because “they are having difficulty determining how they’re going to continue making love to Wall Street” by resisting banking regulation. The Hill

Well Harry, you can keep trying to paint Republicans as being in bed with Wall Street by claiming they are making love to that entity.

It might be true and it might not.

But it is absolutely true that your side will screw Wall Street.

And the American public along with it.

Never surrender, never submit.

Who Is Obama To Say How Much Money Is Enough?

Obama was out campaigning for the Democrats’ Wall Street takeover legislation and had something very interesting to say:

“Now, what we’re doing, I want to be clear, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.” [emphasis mine] Real Clear Politics (video)

Who is Obama to say how much money is enough? If people work and are successful then they are entitled to whatever they can earn. Professional athletes make a fortune for playing kids games and they are entitled to whatever team owners are willing to pay them. Wall Street executives and all other workers in the private sector are entitled to whatever wages they can earn. It is not up to Obama to decide.

This is nothing more than a play to the base about greedy people, you know the people who earn money and pay taxes. Speaking of taxes, I think there comes a point where we have paid enough in taxes. Perhaps Obama can explain how he plans to tax the rich to death but begrudges them their earnings, earnings on which they pay a lot of taxes. They pay nearly all the taxes.

Obama made 5 million dollars last year. Is that too much?

Obama’s pal Oprah Winfrey makes many multiples of Obama’s millions. Is Obama ready to tell Oprah that she has made enough money?

It is not up to a politician to decide if people have made enough money. That is up to the individual earning the money. If people think they have not made enough then they are free to earn more.

This is the mindset we get when a Socialist occupies the White House.

Then again, this is a regime misrepresenting TEA Party activists and training the military to combat them.

Never surrender, never submit.

The New Obama Crisis

Rahm Emanuel said that they should never let a crisis go to waste. Since that time the Obama regime has been manufacturing one crisis after another in order to scare Americans into following the agenda put forward by the Dear Leader Obama. In other words, the fear mongering that Obama accused George Bush of is exactly what Obama and his regime are doing in order to get what they want. I don’t know why they bother because even when the majority of Americans do not buy their song and dance they still push forward and pass what they want.

The financial crisis was one that had to be addressed immediately or the world would end. We must act or now and pass the stimulus. While the administration claims that the stimulus did what it was expected to do (the goal is a moving target) the evidence is that we spent nearly a trillion dollars and got little. Unemployment remains above the number promised if we passed the stimulus and the economy, while slowing showing signs of improvement, is set to experience a second recession and inflation. The stock market is up based on the activity of a few stocks and projections for a year and a half away. Right now, we are still in trouble.

The health care takeover bill that was recently signed into law was one that had to be passed or we faced crisis. The major portions of the law do not take effect until well after the 2012 election but the taxes and other revenue generating gimmicks take place right now. If we had to act NOW then why do major portions not take effect for years to come? This crisis was manufactured to get Obama’s signature legislation passed and allow the government to sink its teeth even deeper into our necks.

Now we have a new crisis being manufactured. The regime has blamed the financial collapse on Wall Street and while that entity deserves some of the blame, it is not the only reason that we have this problem. The housing market, pumped up by government regulation requiring banks to lend to people who could not afford homes, is another key player in the mess. George Bush gets a lot of the blame from the Obama regime but it was he who said that we needed to reign in Fannie and Freddie. People like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd said there were no problems and that these entities were sound. They were only sound for the friends of Democrats who received millions in compensation for running them into the ground.

Obama told us recently, using the words he always uses in a crisis (if we don’t act now), that we must pass the financial reform bill. The financial system, like the health care system, needs some reform but it does not need massive government intervention and takeover. But this is what the government wants. It has control of two of the three major auto makers, the banks, student loans, and now the health care system. It wants to control every aspect of our lives.

But ask yourselves, do you trust the people who ran up a 12 TRILLION dollar deficit to run anything else? Do you trust that government can run the auto industry? GM is still taking big losses. Do you trust the people who run the Post Office to run your health care? Government spends OUR money. It has no concept of what a budget is or how to live within the constraints of one. Government has no business being in business even if it were actually capable of balancing a budget and living within its means.

This regime has usurped the Constitution and is moving us steadily along into a world of Socialism where playing fields are leveled, where income is redistributed and where government runs everything.

This November we have a chance to elect conservatives (notice I did not say Republicans). We have a chance to elect people who will follow the Constitution and who will make Obama a lame duck for his first (and God willing, only) term.

Get energized. There are 435 job openings in the House and about 33 job openings in the Senate.

Let’s fill them with people who have actually worked in the real world and who will follow the Constitution as it was written and as it was intended.

The only real crisis in this country is the crisis that exists as our elected government. Let’s not let this crisis go to waste.

Make Rahm Emanuel and the Obama regime eat those words this November.

Was this a deliberate stunt to garner support for the reform bill? This is how dictatorships run…
The financial bill would reward Goldman Sachs and others by providing perpetual bail-outs. Once again Dodd’s name appears.
More on Dodd (or is it moron Dodd?)
