It There Was Another Way Out He Would Take It

I don't know about you but I was pleasantly surprised that the President could actually admit to recognizing a cover-up perpetrated by Putin and the Ukrainian separatists. Even though it was obvious to most on lookers, it took the Prez awhile but he had to come to a similar conclusion. You know their actions have to be really, really bad after he told the Russians that he would have more flexibility to deal with them after the election. If things weren't so obvious, he would start importing Indonesian children as refugees from Far Eastern drug cartels and pay Putin for the missile to make things right in the 'tranquil world' (Josh Earnest's words) that he has helped create.

The Change He Promised You

From the Patriot Post

Founders Sought to Avoid Obama

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley has long supported Barack Obama, but he's also become alarmed at Obama's increasing imperial presidency. "Our system is changing," he warned, "and [Congress] is the one branch that must act if we are to reverse those changes. We are seeing the emergence of a different model of government, a model long-ago rejected by the framers." Regarding a possible lawsuit against the president, Turley added, "A dominant presidency has occurred with very little congressional opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court." Moreover, "This body is moving from self-loathing to self-destruction in a system that is in crisis. The president's pledge to effectively govern alone is alarming, and what is most alarming is his ability to fulfill that pledge. When a president can govern alone, he can become a government unto himself, which is precisely the danger the framers sought to avoid."

He Wants to Know How You Are Doing

I don't know about you but, I am on the mailing list of the White House ( and get notes from them all the time. I got one today letting me know that President Obama is touring meeting people 'On The Front Porch' and wants to hear stories from around the country. There are several of these wonderful letters on the web site as examples of how wonderful the masses are feeling. Heartwarming.

When you respond to send in your story you enter a form that collects some information and then give you a lead in. You give your name and then get 'I am an' drop down that lets you choose between things like 'American, mother, father, son, other'.

The intro to the letter is 'Here's what a average day in my life looks like and how my family and I are doing: '

My letter follows 'I am watching one of the largest, best paying employers in the area dismantle it's facility, putting hundreds out of work, reducing our local tax base, and all thanks to the efforts of your administration and your steadfast support. Lots of people are loosing work opportunities and our taxes will be going up. The only thing that could make it better would be several bus loads of illegal aliens being dumped in our town. '

Obama's Ability

Been out of town and got behind.

Here is a thought from Rush Limbaugh

"Obama was able to close down Washington Mall, he was able to stop veteran’s ceremonies, he’s able to shut down a Blue Ridge Parkway, he was even able to shut down the Grand Canyon, visits to the Grand Canyon, he’s able to shut down visits to Jellystone National Park, he was able, while the World War II memorial was shut down, he allowed for a pro-immigration rally… yet he tells us that he can’t close the border!”

And he is correct.

Go Figure

Contributed by BH

The definition of Conundrum is something that is puzzling or confusing.
Here are six conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Obamacare for Your Utility Bill

Obama and the EPA recently floated more new ‘carbon’ rules to implement for saving the world by example. Come to think of it, this may be the only area that he is not willing to lead from behind.  
Anyway, I wrote the following to BHO, Udall, Heinrich, and Lujan.
Regarding Carbon Emissions Reduction Rules, your support of this proposal confirms that you are dumber than a box of rocks. The only think this will produce is hardship for the American people and reduce the amount of wealth available for you to share with other countries around the world. It must be hard to be a progressive. Hopefully you all will have more time on your hands in the future to help you deal with your hardship.  
One of these days NWYC may kick me out.
Their flexible’ plan’ will be implemented in a state-federal partnership and If the states don’t implement the ‘plan’ that is laid out by the feds, then the feds will implement it for them in a flexible manner that meets the feds goal. (Remember what happened in NM to the Four Corners and San Juan Generation Stations and the jobs involved.) The plan is so flexible that the states have until June 2016 to submit their plan or have the fed ‘plan’ forced on them. And states can continue to ‘invest’ in further improvement. And states with a greenhouse gas tax plan in place will not be treated as bad as the other states because they are already rushing head long to stop climate disruption in their state. Stopping climate disruption is what the EPA is all about. According to the EPA plan press release, it will shrink electricity bills roughly 8% mostly through reducing demand through increasing cost and other efficiencies, avoid up to 6,600 premature deaths, 490,000 missed work or school days, providing up to $93 billion dollars in climate and public health benefits.
Though not as good as the promises given with the Obamacare sales job, they will certainly be as reliable. Count on your rate reductions coming in the same way your Obamacare savings came. With government estimating processes, avoiding up to 6,600 premature deaths is probably vastly overstated. Considering that at least 500,000 people die each year, stopping all 6,600 would reduce the total by up to a whopping ‘up to 1%’. Everyone should more than willing to pay 35% higher electric rates to achieve this noble goal. By my estimate (and you can run you numbers and make your own estimate) there are about 39,816,000,000 work/school days a year. You can see that a reduction of a government estimated 490,000 days a year is worth about any inconvenience or money the government can take out of your pocket. If true, and I would doubt it, their $93 billion savings for climate and public health benefits amounts to 0.5% of our annual economy estimated at $14,000 billion a year. If nothing else, this has to have you begging to pay more for your electricity. All in the name of setting a good example for the rest of the world because it won't make an impact on emissions in the world.
Elections are coming and if you are going to have any chance of avoiding the coming train wreck, you better do all you can to make a change.
