Obama quietly and without fanfare increases Federal Revenues

President Obama has shown that when he sees a good idea, he runs with it.

Taking a cue from the Chairman of The House Committee on Ways and Means, Rep. Charles Rangel D–NY, President Obama's Cabinet picks have been a carefully orchestrated example of finding the best and brightest men from a list of tax-delinquents; thereby assuring their correcting their delinquencies and pouring funds into the Federal coffers.

Thank you Mr. President. Brilliant !

Governor Patrick J. Quinn

Governor Patrick J. Quinn

May God Help Us All !

When I moved to Illinois in 2003, I called Rod Blagojevich "Governor One-Term". Little did I realize the full incompetence of the IL GOP. Of course it didn't take long to see just how incompetent. Jack Ryan forced out of the US Senate race and replaced by Alan Keyes(I will say no more on him). But, that is not all. In their combined best effort at stopping a return to Springfield of Blago the IL GOP chose Judy Baar Topinka. (She who screwed up the IL GOP and twisted it into an unrecognizable mess by allowing a non-story to taint a decent man when his SEALED divorce records were not only un-sealed, but made public-in a very Obama-kind-of-way and we learned that *gasp* he was inclined to ask his then-wife to have sex outside of the bedroom; essentially handing the US Senate seat to Barack Obama; as Steve Earle sang-you know the rest.) and Joe Birkett(He of the so-very-borderline-criminally-handled Nicarico case) as their candidates.

So, now we have a well-meaning loose cannon as Gov, and no discernable opposition.

as Jimmy Buffet sang-the weather is here, I wish you were beautiful

God Bless This Wonderful Woman from New Brunswick !

This piece of eloquent brilliance comes from From SkyNews:
'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since? Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from the nation's capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they? And I'm supposed to care that a a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency. I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11. I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan. I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat. I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques. I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs. I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting a home to hear about them when something happens. In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don't care. When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don't care. When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed 'special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don't care. And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and, you guessed it, I don't care!! If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior! If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add: 'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.' I have another quote that I would like to add AND.......I hope you forward all this. One last thought for the day: Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you: 1. Jesus Christ 2. The Canadian Soldier. 3. The British Soldier. 4. The US Soldier. 5. The Anzacs, and One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.' YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ALL OF THEM. AMEN!
Thank you, and God bless you.
You speak for so many of us to so many of them.

Pro-Family Abortion

If there were ever need for more proof that the left is completely without the vaguest idea of how to think, here it is
It is time for abortion rights advocates to include a “pro-family” context in their conversations about reproductive rights, according to Malika Saada Saar, executive director of the Rebecca Project for Human Rights. Saar said that much of her generation views the abortion-rights movement as “anti-family” and “anti-child.”
That is without doubt the stupidest combination of opposite meanings since George Orwell's own famous "1984"s Newspeak fully showed what doublespeak is and how it can be used to success.

Is reading even taught is schools ? Surely how to think is not ! Only what to think !

God help us. If these simpletons ever get control of two of three branches of Government - I shudder.

Oh, they do have control of two.

Prayer and Fasting

Pray with out ceasing.

The real reason today was significant

Did you hear it ?!?!?

It happened today, January 20, 2009 A.D.
There was a peaceful transfer of power.
Not a shot was fired.
Not a prolonged nor escalating war of competing factions.

We have become so good at doing this very amazing thing that it has become necessary for the media and others to go find a reason for it's importance.

Is it a big deal that we have a President with a naturally dark skin tone ?
It oughtn't be.
But, those that tell us race should not matter, that we are in a post-racial time, they will be the loudest to proclaim the importance of President Obama's skin tone.

He is African-American. More importantly he is truly African-American. He was conceived of an American mother and an African father. Otherwise, there really is no real meaning to the term African-American.

So, everybody, no matter your skin tone, political leaning, party affiliation, religion or lack thereof, CELEBRATE what we have been doing since 1799 when President Washington witnessed the inauguration of President Adams.

The peaceful transfer of power in the Greatest Republic God Has Ever Allowed.

Honest Mistake ? Yeah ! Right !

President-Elect Obama's SecTrez designee, Timothy Geithner, it has been reported, has, in the past, had some tax issues.

The reports have been about how he seemed to have overlooked paying self-employment taxes for money he earned from 2001 to 2004 while in the employ of the International Monetary Fund, according to materials released by the committee Tuesday.

Could happen to anyone.
Breitbart has
He paid some of the taxes in 2006, after an IRS audit discovered the discrepancy for taxes paid in 2003 and 2004. But it wasn't until much later—days before Obama tapped him to head Treasury late last year—that Geithner paid back most of the taxes, incurred in 2001 and 2002. He did so after Obama's transition team found that Geithner had made the same tax mistake his first two years at the IMF as the one the IRS found he made during his last two years there.
Good thing he had friends looking out for him.

Even the very brilliant and wise Judge Joseph Napolitano thinks it is good to have someone in that position that has had troubles with the IRS.

He is probably correct. No, I will go so far as to say, I wholeheartedly agree with him.

all of this stuff is because he "forget" to pay his taxes in an "honest mistake".

The thing is, I heard otherwise today. When I actually checked, I was able to verify that it was known as soon as yesterday that Mr Geithner was told that he had to pay his taxes himself, and signed paperwork to the effect that he knew it, and would do so.
But, there is more
IMF issues several clear guidelines each year for its employees detailing their responsibility to pay all their self-employment taxes, and that Geithner had signed annual statements saying that he would do so. He also had experience dealing with such taxes, the panel noted.

So, knock off the "Honest Mistake" crap, and just answer the damn question,


Not that we need to ask.

It was because it was your money, you earned it and you didn't want to give it away.

Just say so, we all understand.

National Champions

The University of Florida Gators have beaten The University of Oklahoma Sooners in the very much strained and contrived BCS "National Championship Game"


Florida was beaten by Ole Miss

Who beat The University of Utah Runnin' Utes ?

Take your time



That is less losses than defeated.

The Lights of Albuquerque shine on the evidence that Utah is and ought to be National Champions.

Coincidental by plan ?

I am not a big believer in conspiracy theories. They usually are formulated by ignoring some very important information. You are probably very well aware of the more popular conspiracy theories. If you are a Progressive, you probably believe them.

However, it is very hard to overlook the plain fact that oftentimes there are like minded individuals that come together in a strange, unconscious way. A sort of Kismet.

President-to-be Obama has selected Dr Sanjay Gupta to be US Surgeon General. Dr Gupta has supported a tax on drinks sweetened by corn syrup.

OK, now it devolves a wee bit.

Pepsi-Cola has changed their logo to one that is cleverly reminiscent of The Obama logo without looking like it.

Pepsi-Cola has marketing people that know how to move product by subliminal means.
Pepsi-Cola is sweetened by corn syrup.
Obama wants to find new sources of revenue.
Obama selects a Surgeon general that will advance the cause of taxing corn syrup.

A win-win

What does 30,000 dollars American buy ?

California financier David Rubin gave 110,000 dollars to the PAC's of NM Gov. Bill Richardson.

No problem, yet.

His company, CDR Financial Products, then got a 1.48 million dollar contract following approval for their plan for a bond program.

That might be a problem.

So much of a problem that there is currently an investigation to find out how much of it, if any, was pay-to-play.

The news is that Mr. Rubin also donated to the Obama campaign.

Not that it is unusual. The news is that we even know that he was a donor to The Ones campaign.

It would seem that with all of the current stink coming from the Obama camp, that this would go unreported. But, maybe, the attempt here is to put so much out there that we all stop noticing the newest one.

Chicago Politics - Minnesota Style

There are numerous jokes told in Illinois around the time of elections. Many of them ending in the phrase "vote early and vote often". Some of them are even funny. What makes them funny is that they are grounded in truth.

Now, we see that Minnesotans will get to start their own brand of such humor. This is due to the recent ability of Minnesotans to cast more ballots in some precincts than there are registered voters.

While most of the country has a 30-50 % turnout, there are precincts in Minnesota that will make some Chicago ward captains blush with shame at their own 75% turnout abilities.

Not since Richard J. Daley have I seen 100% plus turnouts.

But, that ain't all. They have achieved Chicago political nirvana - the Judges are in their pocket.

Congratulations Minnesota, you have arrived at the pinnacle; the crowning achievement of Democrat politics.

Law of the Land – optional

Seems Ole Happy has had his way.

Senator Burris was not seated.

With there being no legitimate reason for such an act, how long will the charade of The United States Constitution being the Law of the land continue ?

There are many examples of The Constitution being pissed on, but these may be the most, biggest at any one time !

The President-to-be is Constitutionally ineligible

United States Senate blocks seating of Constitutionally Qualified Senator

Secretary of State nominee is Constitutionally ineligible

All of those links are to a commentary site, but, there are no real news sites still reporting this as news. Frankly any news site that did report it is either scoffed or has rolled over on it and made them all disappear.

Oh, there will be reporting on what Happy did, and his meeting with Sen Burris, but it will all revolve around the topic of who the Il Governor is and the red herring that the IL Secretary of State is.

The Obama Way

We get to see Obama win the general election even though we (by we here, I mean those outside of Illinois) know little to nothing about him. Even if you wanted to find out, the records are either non-existent or sealed. Mr. Transparent. Hope for a change in that matter.
Then we get to see Obama, after discarding anyone that could make him look bad by their, non-hidden, past, choose his supporting cast.
Where to begin ?
His pick for Secretary of State is Constitutionally ineligible, but when was the last time that mattered ?
Then his choice for Secretary of Commerce, a man that took a big risk by showing his support for Obama in a tight race, goes on record saying that this man from Illinois is Constitutionally ineligible to be President.

So, now that we know that there were financial links between Gov Richardson's PAC's and a few lucrative government contracts, now we see that there might be a problem for Obama.
But, it wasn't the same day the NM Grand Jury started investigating.
It wasn't even the same week.
Was it even because of the investigation ?
Was it more probably because as the investigation gets more and more information, it will be harder and harder to keep it out of the news. Which will mean that people will really starting to do web searches of the SecCom designate. Which mean people will see this video. Then what ? We cannot have a SecCom that wears a tin-foil hat.

This is very similiar to how Obama was in Illinois politics. The cut-me-in-or-cut-it-out thinking translates easily to the when-you-make-me-look-bad-I-cut-you-out way at which Obama has shown great skill.

The Obama Way
