Irena Sendler - Why You Have Never Heard of Her, and Have Heard of Al Gore


 
 
A Lady Named Irena Sendler Died May 13th ,2008
    
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a
plumbing/sewer specialist.  She had an ulterior motive...
  
She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German), so  

Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried, and
she also carried, in the back of her truck, a burlap sack, (for larger
kids).   She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi
soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.
  
The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog, and the barking
covered the kids/infants noises.   During her time and course of doing this, she

managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.
  
One day, she was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs and arms and beat her
severely.
  
Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept
them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard.
  
After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it,
and reunite the family.


Most, of course, had been gassed.
  
Those kids she helped were placed into foster family homes or adopted.
  
Irena was nominated for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize....
  
She LOST.
  
Al Gore won for doing a bullshit, inaccurate slide show on global warming.
 
 
 
Shame on the media. Shame on all of us...

Smoke and Mirrors Obama Style


For the life of me I fail to understand in what universe a country of 320 million that signs up 7 million ( 0.0218% ) of its citizenry into a program is called a "Success" Even if each one enrolled represents a family of 4 that's still only 28 million or 0.0875% of the population.

It seems as if the 99% argument has done a 180. Where does the $$ to provide 'subsidies' come from?

If they're getting it from premiums then that means less money goes to actual care, if they're getting it from general taxation then it means that not only those that receive subsidies are offsetting their subsidies, but those who are fortunate to have their own coverage get to pay even more!

Even Ponzi couldn't outdo this scheme?

Smoke and Mirrors Obama Style

All Citizens are required to celebrate the good employment news!



Obama declared that he ended Bush's "recession" in June 2009, and started 'Obama's Economic Recovery', which has done the following for the American people:

1) The number of people has increased each and every month, just since Obama's "recovery", to historically record setting high numbers of people on 'Welfare', 'Food Stamps (EBT Cards), and 'Disability'. 47 million people on food stamps alone. Number of "disabled" has tripled.

2) While Obama, just since his "recovery" started, has dropped over 11 million people from the 'US Workforce', until today it's participation numbers are the lowest in the last 36 years, going all the way back to 1977 when the US population was less than 2/3rds of what the 2010 census tallied to be three years ago.

3) Over 92 MILLION Americans are now out of work, cannot find a job and are being supported by those who still have jobs.

But the cost of living has increased by as much a 30%, considering the rising costs of Health Care, food, housing, reduced wages and transportation, so the ability of those who work, to support the economy through consumer spending and taxes, is rapidly decreasing. But HEY! the economy is recovering "nicely", just slower than "expected". And there are no limits to how you can falsify Economic & "unemployment statistics"!

Put in perspective - 525,000 people left the work force. 74,000 people got jobs - 1/2 of which were temporary or part time, and the population increased by 150,000 people. According to my limited math skills, nearly 600,000 people became jobless in December alone.

The White House deems this as "encouraging progress". Spin it all you want - the entire population of Portland or Las Vegas lost their jobs - JUST THIS MONTH ALONE.

Our Comrades at al-Reuters unexpectedly found a dark cloud behind the silver lining, stating: "U.S. employers hired the fewest workers in almost three years in December." al-Reuters further notes that the new Unemployment Rate of 6.7 percent is the lowest since October 2008! Although they add this: "in part reflected people leaving the labor force."

Citizens are reminded that ALL news is GOOD news here in the Age of Obama! So having the Workforce Participation Rate at an all time low of 62.8% is, by definition, GOOD NEWS! Citizens are therefore ordered to celebrate!

To not do so would be racist and an offence.

If you like the truth, you can keep your truth...

The Liberal media won't report it so it is up to us to report over and over, this is what they said about ObamaCare...

These are all direct quotes from Obama, and Senators about ObamaCare...

Obama on ObamaCare...
Obama, Aug. 15, 2009: I just want to be completely clear about this; I keep on saying this but somehow folks aren't listening, if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. Nobody is going to force you to leave your health care plan.
Obama, March 25, 2010: From this day forward, all of the cynics, all the naysayers, they're going to have to confront the reality of what this reform is and what it isn't.
Obama, June 28, 2012: First, if you're one of the more than 250 million Americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance — this law will only make it more secure and more affordable.

Henchmen on ObamaCare....

Sen. Landrieu (D-LA): “If you like the insurance that you have, you'll be able to keep it.” (MSNBC’s Hardball, 12/16/09)
Sen. Hagan (D-NC): “We need to support the private insurance industry so that people who have insurance they're happy with can keep it (National Journal’s Congress Daily, 6/18/09)
Sen. Begich (D-AK): “If you got a doctor now, you got a medical professional you want, you get to keep that”.
Sen. Bennet (D-CO): “Start with the basic principle if you have coverage and you like it, you can keep it. If you have your doctor, and you like him or her, you should be able to keep them. We will not take that choice away from you.”
Sen. Murry (D-WA): “Again, if you like what you have, you will be able to keep it. Let me say this again: If you like what you have, when our legislation is passed and signed by the President, you will be able to keep it.” (Congressional Record, S.6400, 6/10/09)
Sen. Harkin (D-IA): “One of the things we put in the health care bill when we designed it was the protection for consumers to keep the plan they have if they like it”…we said, if you like a plan, you get to keep it, and you can grandfather it in.” (Congressional Record, S.7675-6, 9/29/10)
Sen. Schumer (D-NY): “If you like your insurance, you keep it.” (U.S. Senate, Finance Committee, Bill Mark-Up, 9/24/09)
Sen. Durbin (D-IL): “This bill before us on the Senate floor makes it clear that if you have an insurance policy that you like, you can keep it. If you like the doctor that you're currently doing business with, you can continue to use that doctor.” (Teleconference, 12/4/09)
Sen. Reid (D-NV):“In fact, one of our core principles is that if you like the health care you have, you can keep it.” (Congressional Record, S.8642, 8/3/09)
Sen. Baucus (D-MT): “That is why one of the central promises of health care reform has been and is: If you like what you have, you can keep it. That is critically important. If a person has a plan, and he or she likes it, he or she can keep it.” (Congressional Record, S.7676, 9/29/10)
Sen. Levin (D) Mi. April 6, 2012: And it is important to remember that for those who already have health insurance, the law allows you to keep your existing plan.
Sen. Merkley (D) Or. Nov. 11, 2013: If you like your current health insurance, you will be able to keep it. And you will be able to continue seeing your current doctor.

Lest we forget. Or the media makes us forget...

Fudging the Employment Numbers the Chicago Way

Did Team Hope and Change Fudge the Unemployment Numbers Just Prior to the 2012 Elections?

Lets look at the data!
 
Some may say that no fudging is going on because the numbers are still dismal. I'll give you that - but fudging one month's unemployment data wasn't designed to change that. It was designed to get Obama re-elected, specifically by providing him cover for the charge that he had failed to meet his 2009 promise to get the unemployment rate below 8 percent.
 
Census Data employee Buckmon himself said the falsification came on orders from higher up the food chain, which means it was systematic. If it's true that Buckmon left his job in 2011, that doesn't mean his on-the-record information about systematic falsification is any less credible. This is the sort of guy that liberals refer to as a "whistleblower" when they like what he's saying. He's a pariah when he disagrees with them.


But even that isn't the strongest proof that the numbers were faked.

The strongest proof is the numbers themselves, which are simply implausible. Maybe Democrats and low info voters will believe anything, but the rest of us are not that stupid. Consider:

The unemployment report is based on two surveys - a household survey and an employer survey. Here are the new job creation results of both surveys, by month, for the entire year of 2012 (the numbers are in thousands):

Employer Survey

Jan: 311
Feb: 271
March: 205
April: 112
May: 125
June: 87
July: 153
Aug: 165
Sept: 138
Oct: 160
Nov: 247
Dec 219

Household Survey

Jan: 712
Feb: 411
March: 1
April: -86
May: 368
Jun: 146
July: -198
August: -86
Sept: 810
Oct: 354
Nov: -51
Dec: 28  



So what Hope and Change operatives wants us to believe is that, consistent with the household survey, in November 2012, an economy that had struggled all year, and had actually lost jobs the previous two months, suddenly for no apparent reason created 810,000 jobs! This in spite of the fact that the employer survey shows no serious variation from the trend.






I suppose you could cite the similarly odd number from January 2012, which purports to show 712,000 new jobs created, and use this as evidence that the household survey varies wildly and therefore what it showed in September is not all that unusual. But January 2012 did show relatively strong growth coming out of the employer survey, whereas September 2012 showed no such thing.






The bottom line here is that we have to measure the strength of the argument of those who believe

there was faking going on against those trying to deny it. In our camp we have a) implausible numbers; b) motive; c) sources inside Census Bureau, one of whom has given his name; and d) an administration we already know is willing to use manipulate government agencies for political purposes. In their camp is a) an official government denial; and b) apologists who follow the usual script whenever conservatives catch Obama doing something wrong.






You decide.

Palin's Record in Contrast to the Dear Leaders...

As governor, Palin combed through the Alaskan budget line by line and powerfully wielded her veto pen.In stark contrast to President Obama and other governors whose fiscal records are dogged by credit downgrades, Palin left Alaska with an improved credit rating during and following her tenure as governor. Standard & Poor’s raised Alaska’s credit rating from AA to AA+ in April 2008.

Then in 2010, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s upgraded Alaska to AAA for the first time in the state’s history due to policies enacted by Palin that made the state’s finances more than solvent.

She implemented important reforms to Alaska’s oil industry and pressured Exxon to start drilling again in Point Thomson after holding leasing on the land for years.

And, unlike the Democrats who talk a big game about taking on Big Oil, Palin actually took on Big Oil with a tenacity that should make her Nancy Pelosi’s hero, releasing the stranglehold that those companies had on the oil resources and industry in her state, driving both more exploration, and the resulting jobs at the same time increased royalty revenues.

She didn’t stand for corruption in the Alaskan government – her ethical stance, in fact, was a key factor in the popularity that allowed her to run for governor.Taking on corruption and crony capitalism has always been a cornerstone of Sarah Palin's agenda; in Alaska she did take on the old-boy network — the oil companies and her own party . As oil and gas commissioner, Sarah Palin called out the unethical practices of members of her own party. As Governor, she sought to end the back room deals and improper relationships between oil companies and politicians.


And for all that she's labeled as "empty" and according to MSNBC, worthy of only defecating on. Seems like the party of "Hope and Change" is letting everyone know what they really think of strong, successful, intelligent women.

Or - you could be a community organizer.

Obama falls for another whopper....

I don’t think for one moment that the Syrians will give up their chemical weapons stocks. They will say they will give it up and they will play the game to undercut any support for a military strike. But they will then start to put conditions on verification and on the foreign presence in Syria. Then they will start in with Israel; demanding that Israel’s nuclear weapons be put on the table. All of this will lead nowhere for the United States — exactly where Damascus and Moscow want it to go, and exactly what they knew Obama would fall for. The AHP - Amateur Hour Presidency. Risking lives and prestige daily.

Obama's Credibility Free Fall - The Amateur Hour Presidency

Usually I am the first to say that what is bad for Obama is good for America - but the recent Middle East debacle(s) is embarrassing all of us, and not just Hussein Obama.

Specifically, Obama lost credibility:


-When he pulled the missile shield from Poland and the Czech Republic.
-When he negotiated away various US nuclear weapons capacity with Russia without receiving much in return in the recent START Treaty.
-When he talks about further unilateral cuts to the US nuclear arsenal without any cuts made by US adversaries or enemy states.
-When he pulled out of Iraq without a status of forces agreement and allowed Iranian influence in,
When he announced a partial surge in Afghanistan, while announcing at the same time a withdrawal in Afghanistan.
-When he withdrew his support for 30 year old ally Mubarak in Egypt and supported Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood.
-When he told Israel it should negotiate a return of territory based upon pre-1967 borders.
-When he negotiated, threatened and did not act against Iranian nuclear development.
-When he failed to support the democratic forces in Iranian against the Mullahs at the start of his presidency.
-When he supported the would-be dictator of Honduras against that country's legislature and national court.
-When he lied about the facts surrounding Benghazi and tried to place the blame on a video about Mohammed.
-When he failed to respond in any way, even to this day, to the attack on the consulate at Benghazi.
-When he started to negotiate with the Taliban to enter the Afghan government, after US forces withdraw.


Usually one learns from their mistakes. Apparently, AHP (Amateur Hour Presidency) has learned only to make bigger mistakes. And those bigger mistakes make us a smaller country. Americans have, and will continue to die as a direct result of the AHP.

I want my $12 Big Mac!


I was somewhat bemused by the usual cast of idiots, sycophants and unwashed that were protesting last week at fast food places looking for a $15 base pay and saying that Wal Mart, at the point of a gun mind you, should be FORCED to pay every employee  minimum of $25,000 per year.

I'm bemused because these simpletons haven't got a grasp on basic economics - and in fact - voted for the very guy that is causing their opportunities to disappear. You get what you vote for, and these folks deserve the ramifications of an Obama government. Without lubrication.

As I mentioned, these people don’t understand the most simple, basic elements of economics.

Like supply and demand.

With an unlimited supply of labor, labor becomes very cheap. That means you make less money – a lot less. And it doesn’t matter if you are a rocket scientist or a landscaper, the same law of supply and demand applies. When you have more butter than people demand to butter their bread, the price of butter, particularly excess butter, falls.

When you allow 1.5 to 2 million immigrants every year, whether legal or illegal to enter the work force, you have increased the supply of labor and thereby lowered the value/cost of that labor. When you allow 10-20 million illegals to stay without any sort of integration they have to work "under the table" which drives down the price of butter - I mean people - even more.

Which means you and I make less money. It’s that simple.

Now - to be clear - the only reason that there is not a complete collapse of wages in this country is that people are bailing out of the job market by retiring, going on disability or welfare. Or in the case of government workers - all three, but I digress. Then the healthiest ones turn to "cash based income" (I'll leave that one alone!) thereby lowering the value of on-the-books butter - sorry, people - even more. There are less people "working" today then there was thirty years ago.

Obama has presided over a staggering net job loss, an almost 100% increase in food stamps recipients and a similar increase in the number of people seeking disability. There used to be 3.2 "makers" in the US supporting 1 "taker". That number is now 1.6 makers for every taker.

Of course he wants to blame the "rich" - who else is going to fund all the promises made to the great unwashed? With a deficit approaching 18 trillion USD, even our friends won't lend us much more money. And in the eyes of a socialist - anybody that has more than you - is "rich". And therefore a target. Like fast food companies and Wal Mart.

How to fix it? That's the easy part. Unless you are a Democrat - because this is going to cost a lot of votes....

1. Enforce the borders and end undocumented wink-wink immigration
2. Nail those businesses that pay off the books - especially to illegals
3. Create a path so that off book illegals become on book legal workers. Not citizens, but workers. They get in line like everybody else.
4. Reduce the benefit allotment for welfare, unemployment and the like. It isn't a replacement for a wage. It is an insurance policy with term and benefit limits. 70% of your average last year's pay for 4 months.
5. Eliminate or even ABOLISH federal minimum wage laws. You would be surprised at how quickly the price of labor resets itself. People who are worth nothing, get nothing, people that do a good job and create good value get a good wage. People that create outstanding value or take outstanding risks with their own resources make a great wage.
6. Eliminate public sector unions that increase the cost of everything for everybody (except them of course!)
7. Remove intergenerational business asset taxes. If I built it - I want my kids to have it. And if it runs as a going concern, I don't want them taxed to death on the "theoretical" capital gain.
8. Ensure welfare recipients that are able get job and skill training by having them work on infrastructure projects - every location has those needs. Pay 'em the welfare, but create a path to get off it. No workee/trainee, no payee.
9. Take advantage of the knowledge of retired people - and pay them some sort of stipend to teach welfare youth skills that are in demand.
10. Elect leadership that believes that gov't should get out of the way of people, leave us and our stuff alone and allow us to return the USA to being the greatest country in the world.

Or you can pay $12 for a Big Mac.
