Remember how Conservatives are supposed to be racists?

As I look at the leadership of the Democratic Party, I see Howard Dean, John Kerry, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi.  They do have their “useful race-baiters” like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Barney Frank … but not too many senior black leaders.  The Republicans, however, have Michael Steele, Allen West, Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice, Alan Keyes, and Clarance Thomas; but somehow we are labeled racist! The icing on the cakes is that, in the spirit of reverse racism, these intelligent, independent-thinking black leaders are labeled as Uncle Toms or Race Traitors by the left-wing liberal elitists, their biased media lap-dogs, and progressive or left-wing liberal blacks  … simply because they dared to step off the progressive-liberal plantation.

Real Hope and Change

Did you know that the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Christian Denomination in the U.S., formed during a pre-civil war split with Northern Baptists over the issue of slavery.  For much of the last century they supported segregation and fought civil rights legislation.  Traditionally and not surprisingly, in the past, there has not been a strong black presence in the Southern Baptist Convention.  These are many of the same folks Obama chastised for “clinging bitterly to their Bible and their guns.”  Can’t get much more conservative than that … can you?  Did you know they are on the verge of electing their first Black President … the Rev. Fred Luter, Jr.  The Rev. Luter is highly respected and admired as the man to lead the Southern Baptist Convention forward.  Rev. Luter’s rise within the Southern Baptist ranks has been a slow and steady process, the result of the dedication, leadership, and creativity that helped him turn a struggling inner-city church of 50 members into the largest Southern Baptist church in Louisiana based on weekly attendance. Now that is real Hope and Change, put forth by those evil, racist conservatives! Who would have thunk it?

Real Modern Racism: Obama gives $1.2 Billion given to black farmers.

I know this is an older story,  but somehow it kind of slipped under the radar of (translation: “was ignored by”) Obama’s lap-dog liberal media …  so I am trying in my own small way to bring the issue into the light.

Through the Department of Agriculture, President Obama’s administration authorized the use of $1.2 Billion of our tax money to go to black farmers as payback for years (decades) of discrimination. (Fox News, Nov 2010)  The Agriculture Department said that this “affirmative action” was necessary in   “addressing an unfortunate chapter in USDA’s civil rights history.”  In October 2011, a judge gave the government approval. (Huffington Post)

“This agreement will provide overdue relief and justice to African American farmers, and bring us closer to the ideals of freedom and equality that this country was founded on,” Obama said in a statement.

So my tax dollars are being given to black farmers in the name of freedom and equality?  Wait just a darn minute … Mr President!  Members of my family fought and died … serving in the Union Army and giving the ultimate sacrifice … their lives, in the name of freedom, liberty, and ending slavery in this country!  So, Mr. Obama, how is this “fair” to me?

The Democratic Party, which Obama is a member of, was the party that controlled the Supreme Court and pushed through the Dred Scott Decision supporting slavery and effectively defining black slaves as  personal property…  with no more rights than say … a shoe.  It was the Democratic Party that fought Civil Rights legislation tooth and nail until a Republican President enforced Civil Rights legislation with the National Guard.  George Wallace was a DEMOCRAT!  The KKK was made up of DEMOCRATS!

Either Black democrats don’t know their own party’s history … or are they, in fact, simply slaves on a new progressive modern plantation … a left-wing liberal utopia where their new masters give them “free Obama money” and in return they vote the way they are told?

Typical Obama action: Bypassing Congress

The real truth … Obama was again simply bypassing congress and using his cabinet appointees to enact policy and spend more tax payer money to buy future votes. It was, when you cut through all his fancy rhetoric, a simple power grab.

And as a final note, that judge that approved this, simply sanctioned and allowed for reverse discrimination in the form of money being given to people of only one ethnic background.

Campaign 2012: Obama’s Fuzzy Math and Racism?

Obama strikes again … positioning himself as the proud defender of the American middle class

“Either we ask the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share in taxes or we’re going to have to ask seniors to pay more for Medicare. We can’t afford to do both. This is not class warfare, its math,” Obama stated to a cheering audience of cool aid drinking Obama-zombies.

“If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a teacher makes me a warrior for the middle class, I wear it as a badge of honor,” Obama proudly exclaimed!

Just the kind of words you would expect to send a shiver up the legs of eat-the-rich progressive-liberals who can’t wait to line up for their “free Obama money!” Sounds to me like he is working up to admitting he is a socialist.  Maybe that will be in next week’s speech.

If what Obama is doing is not waging class warfare on higher earning Americans to win the votes of lazy socialist-minded welfare recipients, and if it is indeed just “math;” it is the fuzziest math I have ever seen.  In fact … it is an outright lie. But then, Obama has never been one to let the truth get in the way of a good story!

Obama is basically saying that instead of having a spending problem, America has a revenue problem. This could not be further from the truth.  The Obama administration’s spending frenzy is unsustainable.  In fact, do you remember when Obama stated that the current deficit spending is “unsustainable.”

“We can’t keep on just borrowing from China,” Obama said in May of 2009 at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, outside Albuquerque. “We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt.”

I guess the wind must have changed, because now Obama, master of the “blame-everyone-but-me”  game, is now trying to blame the “wealthiest Americans” for America’s economic woes.  Of course, this is exactly what SEIU, ACORN, and Vote smart-minded  people hear! It is definitely class warfare and one of Obama’s re-election strategies it to divide, create mode discord, and conquer. The truth is, however, it is simply re-election campaign rhetoric, it is dishonest, and it is definitely un-presidential.

It is time for Americans to stand up and demand to know what he means by “pay their fair share.”  Obama keeps using the phrase “millionaires and billionaires” in his campaign speeches.  This is part of his fuzzy new math … that defines anyone who earns $200,000 and more as a “millionaire and billionaire.” How does earning $200,000 equate to being a millionaire?  The NEA and local teacher’s unions (strong Obama supporters all) have been trying to teach this “math” in our public schools for years

How does Obama define “fair share.” Real math shows that “wealthiest Americans” pay the majority of federal income taxes, while the only group not paying its “fair share” is the 47 percent of wage earners in this country who pay no federal income tax at all.  Again … sounds like class warfare to me!

There is nothing stopping Obama’s good friend, Warren Buffet from paying more taxes. Obama said in hs jobs speech that Warren Buffet told him that he felt he should pay more taxes because he is wealthy and can afford to.  Why then is Mr. Buffet fighting against paying $1 billion in the back taxes he owes.  He should happily pay that and more!

Obama assumes that, we fly over Americans (because we do not live in New England or California), are too stupid to do the math.  Obama tells us that if we just raise the taxes on “wealthy Americans,” the deficit problem will go away.  This is simply not true and another example of Obama’s fuzzy math.  Several independent researchers have done real number crunching (you know, the kind of math schools taught before our public schools became progressive-liberal “brainwashing programs”  and the NEA began to re-write American history and develop curriculums based on political correctness). 

The truth is that  if the government actually confiscated 100 % of all income over $200,000 per year, the federal government would gain about $221 billion!  So …  if Obama were to actually be honest with his voters … this “revenue enhancement” would not even cover the $714 billion he spent on anti-poverty programs last year; never mind cover Obama’s increased spending for his American Jobs Act!

What Obama is really trying to do is to frame the 2012 election around race.  If he can convince enough black and hispanic voters who are now upset with his performance that the Tea Party is racist, then he may have a chance at being re-elected in 2012.   This is what Obama is secretly and desperately trying to do … and he has help from people I never would he suspected. 

Morgan  Freeman, a man I once respected as a man and an actor (I loved his roles in Invictus and Million Dollar Baby … among others) accused the Tea party of being racist in an interview on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight saying,

“Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we can to get this black man outta here.”

No Mr. Freeman.  You are dead wrong.  It is not that “We’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.” Are there racists in this country?  Of course there are!  On both sides.  I would argue that anyone who wants to keep Obama in office just because he is black, and ignores the fact his is destroying our country … is a racist!  But that is not what this is about! 

It is the fact that Obama (whether he is black, white, bi-racial, or pink with purple polka dots) is destroying this country!  His Soros-orchestrated policies are leading American down the same failed path that has already destroyed most of western culture … the path to big government with its sluggish bureaucratic centralized control, out-of-control spending, and unsustainable social welfare programs; that (while popular with 3rd and 4th generation welfare recipients and those with socialist or communist leanings) will lead this country to bankruptcy … just like it has Greece and most other EU member nations.

In case Morgan Freeman hasn’t noticed, Herman Cain is black … and a doing very well in Tea Party circles.  I guess he would call Allen West, Marco Rubio, Alan Keyes, Nikki Haley, Susana Martinez, James White, and Stefani Carter racist!

 I really like Herman Cain’s comments on Morgan Freeman’s “the Tea Party is racist” statement:

“Well, first of all, I doubt if Morgan Freeman, with all due respect, who is a great actor, has ever been to a Tea Party,” Cain said. “Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Parties … about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party.”

Cain, whose campaign is doing very well after winning the Florida straw poll, was quick to say that he was not offended by the Freeman’s remarks:

“I just think that it is sad that they’re so short-sighted in really understanding what the whole Tea Party citizen movement is all about,” he continued. “I’m not offended by it, because it doesn’t slow down my momentum. It doesn’t slow down the reaction that I get from people.”

“So, name-calling is something that’s going to continue in this, because they don’t know how to stop this movement. And this movement is making a big difference in politics, because a lot of the traditional Democrats are moving to the center or moving over to vote for conservatives. They’re taking another look at a Herman Cain.”

What scares Obama’s campaign so much is that they do not know how to stop the Tea Party movement!  Normally, progressive-liberals would just buy them off.  That is how, as van Jones said, the communists bought the Democratic party.  In the past, they would  just pass some massive pork spending bill and slip the money out the back door to pay off the trouble makers … and the problem goes away. 

This tactic will not work on the Tea Party because the Tea Party is made up of American heartland-type Americans, including Republicans and Democrats, Blacks, Whites, and Hispanics.  Tea Party members want to end just that kind of corrupt, Chicago-style, backroom deal making;  and to get back to ideas like being proud to be an American, having a balanced budget, fiscal responsibility the federal government level, and yes … individual responsibility.

Progressive-liberals simply do not understand that kind of thinking.  They kneel at the altar of big government and are petrified of the idea of Americans thinking for themselves and making decision without out their “guidance.”  They have no choice but to resort to scare tactics and name calling.  And … as November 2012 approaches it will get much worse!!

Despite what Morgan Freeman says, Obama’s re-election is a clear and present danger to this country’s future as the last standing bastion for individual freedom and liberty.  Racism does not enter into the equation. It is a sad commentary on how far this country has fallen from the greatness our ancestors fought and struggled for, but the sad truth is that if enough voters are more motivated by the selfish entitlement mentality fostered by progressive-liberal’s over the last several decades, than by what is truly best for America and the majority of patriotic Americans living here, he can be re-elected.  It is time for the silent majority to no longer be silent.  It is time for conservatives to go against the nature and stand up and be heard … loudly and forcefully.

Chicago Tribune Tells Obama: Do Not Run!

I rarely find myself agreeing with left-wing democrats, but sometimes the opportunity presents itself … even if idea is approached from different perspectives.  The “Anointed One” received a message on Monday from Steve Chapman, a veteran columnist for the Chicago Tribune, in an OP/ED piece saying, “please don’t run for re-election.”

And … this is the same Chicago hometown newspaper that endorsed Obama when he descended from on high to bring us all “hope and change”  in 2008.  Can you say … “oops!?”

Now, I understand that Steve Chapman wants Hillary to run! It is the progressive-liberal’s (i.e. communists who have bought out the democratic party) only chance to keep power.  Chapman wrote, “Her husband presided over a boom, she’s been busy deposing dictators instead of destroying jobs, and she’s never been accused of being a pushover.” 

Well, some of that is sort of true I guess . Bill Clinton did preside over a booming economy …  created for him by President Reagan‘s policies.   But, I am not sure which dictators Hillary actually deposed.  that would be a lot for a Secretary of State to pull off.  Anyway, Obama single-handedly took out Osama Bin Laden and Muammar Gaddafi … just ask him … he’ll tell you.

I guess there is no chance of getting Steve Chapman to support Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, or Rick Perry!  Too bad … that is more like what this country needs now!

I do wish that Obama would gracefully bow out and not run for re-election.  Or … he could just quit.  Personally, I think he should be impeached for treason; because I believe he has actively worked toward the destruction of this country so he could re-create it in his  version of an Obama lead “benevolent” dictatorship.  It is the only thing that makes sense when you really look at the steps he has taken:

  • Increased government intrusion into private sector.
  • Created his “Czarist” shadow government.
  • Imposed Obamacare on Americans even though the greatest majority of Americans opposed it.
  • Tried to impose “Cap and Tax” by imperial decree.
  • Instituted several “eSnitch” programs encouraging citizens to spy on each other for him.
  • Tax the private sector into submission.
  • Created massive new governmental regulation by “executive order” costing Americans billions annually.
  • Destroyed American jobs while supporting job growth in Brazil and Canada.
  • Consistently ignored the U.S. Constitution and actively supported suppressing individual rights.
  • Appointed administrative officials that are totally unqualified for their jobs based on their left-wing ideology.
  • Apologized to the “radical” world for America’s greatness.

He has done way more than enough damage to our country’s economy, destroyed the job market, irresponsibly increased the national debt, destroyed our country’s morale, and lowered our international standing. Obama does not believe America is exceptional.  He does not believe in private property.  He does not believe in limited-government. He does not believe in individual rights.  He is, perhaps, American by accident of birth; but he is not American in his heart!

In no way should this be construed as an endorsement for Hillary Clinton.  Talk about a lessor of two evils!!  She would do only slightly less damage than that which Obama has wrought on our great nation.  But then, even Dick Cheney said Hillary would, at least, be better than Obama!
