    LET THEM EAT CAKE ?!!   I'M PISSED OFF (click here)

April 17, 2011: Congressman Mick Mulvaney, (R) SC, just said on Fox (of course) that the Paul Ryan plan to cut spending by RAISING THE SOCIAL SECURITY RETIREMENT AGE TO 70, "will be remembered as one of the greatest achievements of the Republican Party." Abraham Lincoln is rolling over in his grave.

Maybe it will be an "achievement" but infamous would better describe it. Maybe you can lawyer, legislate, host a talk-show, or run daddy's business at 70,  but get ready you construction workers, plumbers, roofers, assembly line workers, salesmen.

What? You say, you worked and paid into the system all these years? Yup. And Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, George Bush, and Al Gore spent it - THE SYSTEM IS BROKE. Now quit whining and get back up on that roof, You have 3 more years. (click here)

Marie Antoinette lost her head for suggesting a similar proposal. Why should America's Seniors lose theirs?

May 16, 2011 Update: What's that? Republicans are putting the Ryan plan on hold; couldn't expect it to pass the Senate, you say? Or maybe those angry seniors at those inconvenient Town-Hall meetings gave you an earfull. The only surprise here is that Republicans (yet again) got caught off guard.

May 16, Update: Republicans Bash Gingrich, FALL IN, YOU DAMNED REPUBLICANS.
                          
May 18, Update: The best TV Ad since "does a piggie cry wee, wee, wee . . . " Paul Ryan pushing struggling granny in a wheel chair off a cliff. Funny AND dead on. Where is Richard Widmark when we need him?

May 22, Update: Newt Gingrich says he was taken out of context. Man up, Newt (if a man named Newt CAN man up). Stick by your convictions if you believe you're right.

May 23, Update: Oh. oh. Harry Reid says he will bring the Ryan Bill up for a vote in the Senate. I guess old Harry still knows a good issue when he sees it.

June 1, 2011 Update: Ole' Harry got Ryan's Plan before the Senate. The bill failed to pass - with four Republicans dissenting. 

July 8, 2011 Update: Today, President Obama officially departs from Democratic Party dogma - and sides with Republicans in screwing Seniors. He and Republican leaders will summit in the Cabinet Room (beer in hand, no doubt) this weekend to decide how much they will take out of 'entitlement' programs - Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid - in order to "cut" the deficit.


UPDATE, UPDATE . . . . December 12, 2012. While not admitting what a dumb idea the original Ryan Plan was, Paul Ryan announced his "new" plan to cut back on the Medicare costs that were promised to American Seniors. (click here): He doesn't mention if he plans  to keep Seniors on the assembly line or pitching tar on a 110 degree roof - but it's a start.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY? 
(1st posted July 4, 2007)

There was a time when Democrats, the Party to which I once (BRIEFLY) belonged, and from which I ran for President in 2008,  stood for a strong defense; fought for the working man; fended off illegal  immigration;  believed in the Second Amendment;  struggled for equality and a good public - school education for everyone, and believed in God and the sanctity of life. It seems that now days, all democratic leaders do is campaign. I say Enough is enough.

IF YOU BELIEVE THAT AMERICA MUST RETURN TO THOSE VALUES AND TRADITIONS THAT MADE US THE GREATEST NATION IN HISTORY; IF YOU BELIEVE THAT GOVERNMENTS DON'T SOLVE PROBLEMS, THEY CREATE THEM; IF YOU BELIEVE THAT WE CAN'T SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS UNLESS WE CAN IDENTIFY, EXACTLY, WHAT NEEDS FIXING; AND (SPEAKING OF WHICH) IF YOU BELIEVE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING (in no special order) MYTHS, CLICHES, URBAN LEGENDS, AND PLAIN OLD B. S. TO BE TRUE; YOU NEED TO READ THIS WEBSITE.

GOVERN YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY  ( Sawyer III, 24, 7 )
OUR LEADERS

The United States is a success because of the diversity of its citizens. Our people excel at everything: Medicine, construction; sales, insurance; military, education, the sciences, mathematics; retail; and on and on. 

Freedom affords each of us the opportunity to build upon our individual skills and interests. The implied imperative, one would think, is that our interests would, therefore, be best served by political leaders who reflect our diversity: teachers, scientists, doctors, businessmen, roofers, police and fire people.

Instead, we are governed by lawyers.

UNIVERSAL TRUTHS

There are certain 'truths' by which most of us, and certainly our political and moral leaders, should adhere and incorporate into our guiding principles.

Wittgenstein wrote the obvious: "That that is, is."

To some political leaders of course "is" is open to interpretation.

Sept. 28, 2010: Whoa there Congressman Darrell Issa: On "On The Record" : You argue that the Obama tax on the rich will only increase revenues by about 5%. You further aver that many business owners will be selling their businesses after many years and it is unfair to tax them extra.

Then you insist that these tax increases on small business owners will inhibit the creation of new jobs. Please explain to me how someone selling a business will be creating jobs
“The one  pervading evil of Democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds  by force or fraud, in  carrying  elections.”

Lord Acton
THE FOUNDING FATHERS ON POLITICAL PARTIES

In their personal notes prior to their serialized publishing of "The Federalist," James Madison and Alexander Hamilton warned against the establishment of political parties - factions they called them. While in later years (after 1789) they apparently got over it - Madison as leader of the Republicans in support of Republican Thomas Jefferson' s (successful) campaign for President; Hamilton as leader of the Federalists backing of John Adam's (failed) re-election bid, both felt that by belonging to a political party, our elected officials would feel loyal to party first, themselves second, the people they are hired to represent - a distant third. On the Federal Convention John Jay (Fed 37) commented thus: "The Convention must have enjoyed in a very singular degree, an exemption fron the pestilential influence of party animosities - the disease incident to deliberative bodies , and most apt to contaminate their proceedings." (My emphasis). 

Note that Madison ("must have enjoyed") doesn't admit that he attended the Convention. 

In Federalist 10, Madison warns "Men of factious tempers, of local prejudices, or of sinister designs may by intrigue, by corruption, or by other means may first obtain the suffrages, then betray the interests of the people." Quickly - When you read Madison's words, whose face(s) flashed before you? 

In his historical "Farewell Address, " George Washington warns his countrymen "in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally. ' It divides the community and agitates it with "ill founded jealousies and false alarms." Washington was so ticked off at the "Republicans" - especially newspapers supported by Thomas Jefferson, and their constant harangue of him and his administration (except Secretary of State Jefferson, one supposes), that Alexander Hamilton rewrote Washington's Farewell Address to done down the bitterness in Washington's draft.

Washington's successor, John Adams, who took the partisan attacks with considerable more grace than General Washington, was slammed even more by Jefferson and others - solely for political ends.

Theodore Roosevelt opined: "Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests, which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, is the first task of the statesmanship of the day." Progressive Party Platform of 1912 (Thanks to Jim Helms)

In recent years Americans have had it too good. We spend long hours working to get ahead (or staying even), and the rest of our time . . . . well, doing the rest of the things we do. We take our freedoms for granted. And why not? Isn't that what freedom is for? So, we leave the job of managing the country to others - mostly lawyers. So, are these surrogate leaders looking out for us? What would George Washington say?

The political class looks after: POLITICAL PARTY FIRST, GETTING RE-ELECTED SECOND. If there is any time left on the politicians' plate, they pretend to look after the people who pay their salaries - that's you and me. WHY? Because they get bribed (campaign contributions, they call them) by special interests groups to represent THEIR interests - not yours. And these groups do that because THEIR INTERESTS ARE DIFFERENT FROM YOUR INTERESTS. GOT IT ! ? Here's my case:

BELOVED ?

A query, Mr. President: Just which countries on this planet are beloved? Name one. There is none. Oh, people may have a favorable opinion of, say, Switzerland, but beloved? Huh uh. So why do we care if the French, Iranians, Venezuelans, or Trobriand Islanders love us? I DON'T, and neither should you. Better the world should respect us - better that they are afraid of us. Then they might think differently before they kidnap and murder our civilians; sell IED's to our enemies; or bomb our embassies skyscrapers.

2000 years ago any Roman Citizen could walk anywhere on this Earth without fear of being attacked. 

October 17, 2009:

Recently, During a speech before Congress, President Obama declared (emphatically) that the new healthcare proposal absolutely excluded illegal aliens from receiving any benefits whatsoever, wherein Congressman Joe Wilson famously demurred. The ensuing media coverage led by “outraged” Democrats and Conservative talk show hosts looking to be fair and balanced, served the party-system objective of reducing the real issues of the debate to the usual name calling.

That President Obama, ahem, erred in his conclusions (see editorial and letter to the editor on my DOMESTIC ISSUES page) becomes irrelevant in the face of the entertainment value of the more interesting name calling. Why, then,  should anyone care about Mr. Wilson‘s “you lie” outburst? Certainly Mr. Wilson doesn’t. He’s raised a ton of campaign money since he uttered those words.

We all should be concerned. Serious issues need to be properly addressed by those whom we elect to govern our nation’s business. 

1. Define the problem. If you don't know what's broken, how can you  fix it? 

2. Solicit opinions from a diverse group of people as to how to fix the problem.

3. Debate the proposed bill in an open bi-partisan way. 

4. Make the proposed bill brief, available in plain English for public review.

5. Pass the bill on its merits.

Let’s compare this simple and sensible method to the recent Democrat Party healthcare proposal:

1. Most people (85%) don’t think the healthcare system is broken enough to just scrap it.

2. Democrats didn’t ask anyone’s opinion - not even Republican colleagues.

3. Democrats formulated their bill behind closed doors away from the press, you and me.

4. Brief? 1,000 pages brief and climbing.

5. Merits? I think Joe Wilson (the Congressman, not the Wannabe) expressed all of our opinions on the merits.

So, when someone objects to being steamrolled, do progressives debate and defend their ideas? Kwitcherkiddin’ (as Dear Abbie used to say). Nope. They attack the messenger. You think the Obama plan is wrong - you’re a racist; to costly - you’re heartless; and so forth.

The American People have the best medical care in the world. To just dump it and replace it with a government-run program is just plain stupid. The Healthcare Reform bill sucks. If 83% (Dems own poll) of the American People are happy with their healthcare, why would our politicians want to make sweeping changes? They purposely made up a bill that was too long for anyone to digest; lied about what was and was not in the bill; then tried to ram it through Congress before anyone caught on.

Sort of puts new meaning to the word “representative” does it not?

If the goal of the liberals (hereinafter “progressives” with a small ‘p‘) really was to fix the healthcare system, they could have done so. No, their objective is to nationalize the healthcare system; to create even more dependency on progressives and ultimately to win many more voters to the Democratic Party. 

Party first, candidate second . . . you and me? Take a number.

In the following pages, I offer some suggestions.
