Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Obamination: False Choice–Who Will You Stiff?


The debt limit issue is loaded with snake excrement. It is asserted that, if we can’t borrow more, we can’t pay our bills. Those promoting that idea want us to overlook a fatal flaw in their argument. Periodic payments of interest & principal on Treasury Bills are part of our bills.

If we can’t pay “our bills”, we can’t make our loan payments. If we can only service existing loans by borrowing more, then we can’t pay our bills and we can’t service our debt; we are functionally bankrupt.

We are borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.  Sooner or later, Peter and Paul will figure out that they are not really being paid. We must reduce borrowing and increase transfer of real value.  We must drastically reduce federal spending.

Who do you screw; Mom’s doctor, Suzie’s dentist or Gradpa’s pension?  Do you cut out gasoline and walk thirty miles to work?  Do you cut out natural gas and let the pipes freeze?  Do you turn off the air conditioner and let Grandma suffer heat stroke?

Rush Limbaugh says that Social Security is safe because it is vested in Treasury Bills, which can be sold. He neglects the fact that with our credit worthless, those sales will have greatly reduced yield.  Interest rates will escalate as a result.  The day is coming when there will be no buyers at the T Bill auctions.

Families suffer those choices when the government ships jobs overseas, raises taxes and artificially inflates food, medical & energy  prices.   TARP lined the pockets of fat cat bankers & brokers, who, in turn, contributed to the Democrat’s war chest. Stimulus lined the pockets of union goons, who, in turn, contributed to the Democrat’s war chest.

They did it all on borrowed money and they can’t pay it back, so they plan to bleed the “rich”, “wealthy” and “millionaires”.  When you bleed them, you bleed all of the service providers, vendors and employees who depend on them. That is the way to shrink the economy and prolong the depression, not the way to solve it.

Now is the time to wise up and rise up.  Tell your Democrat Representative & Senators to go to Hell. Tell your Republican Representative & Senators to stand up and fight back, with courage; without fear or this term will be their last.  Tell the Republican Party that you have made your last contribution unless they quit caving in to outrageous tactical and strategic demands.

The ’12 primary season is our chance to stand up and declare that we are through eating excrement sandwiches.  Not on white, not on whole wheat; not with mustard, nor with ketchup. No more vague “miracle cure” plans.  No more impossible promises. Demand common sense and accept nothing less. Names & appearance don’t count. Charisma is not important.  Examine the candidate’s past statements and actions. Examine the writings, statements and actions of their cronies. Decide your votes between your ears, not between your legs.

“White balls elect, black cubes reject, be careful when voting and make no mistakes.”

Obamination: Food & Fuel Inflation


Obamination: Food & Fuel Inflation

The video is too large and my connection too slow,
I watched only enough to obtain a clear image of Obama’s
demeanor.  That POS exudes arrogance as a cane toad exudes
venom.

I purchased 1.09# of ground beef to use in my
holiday casserole; it cost $5.09.  There was no less expensive
ground beef in the supermarket. As I pedaled past the gas station on my
way home, I saw a sign which read $4.099 for unleaded gas.

Think hard; try to connect the data points.

  • Slick Willy vetoed ANWAR oil production in ’95.
    • Shrub and the spineless RINOs in Congress failed to reverse his
      decision.
  • Obama cut off new off shore leases in the next five year plan
  • Obama exploited the oil rig explosion to terminate off shore
    exploration & production.
  • Obama is blocking production in known reserves under Federal land.
  • Iran is stirring up “unrest” in the Mid East, threatening supply
    and pushing up prices through psychology.
  • One third of our corn crop is diverted from the food chain into
    motor fuel.
    • Grain alcohol production requires more energy input than it
      produces.
    • The energy density of alcohol is lower than that of gasoline,
      more is needed per mile.
  • The failure of Russia’s wheat crop reduced supplies, raising
    prices and pushing impoverished Africans into starvation, providing an
    incentive to revolt, which, in turn, pushes up the price of oil.
  • Diesel fuel is an important input in agricultural production
    & distribution. When oil goes up, farmer’s expenses go up,
    resulting in reduced supply and increased food prices.
  • Everything we buy is more expensive because of suicidal
    government policies.  It costs more to eat, more to heat our homes
    and more to drive to work.
  • “Clean energy” & “alternative fuels” are false &
    malicious slogans of no probative value.  No alternative fuel
    matches the energy density of hydrocarbons.  No alternative fuel
    can be produced economically in industrial quantity.  There is no
    economical substitute for petroleum and there never will be, certainly
    not in our life times.
  • Obama is investing our tax dollars in Brazil’s off shore
    production.  Others are tapping our offshore resources in the Gulf
    while our producers are blocked.
  • Obama wants this inflation, complaining only of how rapidly gas
    got to $4.  Forcing us to pay more and shrink our lifestyle is
    part of his Socialist agenda.

Remarks of
President Barack Obama

Weekly Address on Gas Prices

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Washington, DC

This is a time of year when
people get together with family and friends to observe Passover and to
celebrate Easter.  It’s a chance to give thanks for our blessings
and reaffirm our faith, while spending time with the people we
love.  We all know how important that is – especially in hard
times.  And that’s what a lot of people are facing these days.1

Even though the economy is growing again and we’ve seen businesses
adding jobs over the past year, many are still looking for work. And
even if you haven’t faced a job loss, it’s still not easy out
there.  Your paycheck isn’t getting bigger, while the cost of
everything from college for your kids to gas for your car keeps
rising.  That’s something on a lot of people’s minds right now,
with gas prices at $4 a gallon.  It’s just another burden when
things were already pretty tough.2

Now, whenever gas prices shoot up, like clockwork, you see politicians
racing to the cameras, waving three-point plans for two dollar
gas.  You see people trying to grab headlines or score a few
points.  The truth is, there’s no silver bullet that can bring
down gas prices right away.3

But there are a few things we can do.  This includes safe and
responsible production of oil at home, which we are pursuing.  In
fact, last year, American oil production reached its highest level
since 2003.4
On Thursday, my Attorney General also launched a task force with just
one job: rooting out cases of fraud or manipulation in the oil markets
that might affect gas prices, including any illegal activity by traders
and speculators.5
We’re going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the
American people for their own short-term gain.6  And
another step we need to take is to finally end the $4 billion in
taxpayer subsidies we give to the oil and gas companies each year.7  That’s $4
billion of your money going to these companies when they’re making
record profits8 and you’re paying near
record prices at the pump.  It has to stop.

Instead of subsidizing yesterday’s energy sources, we need to invest in
tomorrow’s.9 We
need to invest in clean, renewable energy.10 In the long term, that’s the
answer.11
That’s the key to helping families at the pump and reducing our
dependence on foreign oil.  We can see that promise already.
Thanks to an historic agreement we secured with all the major auto
companies, we’re raising the fuel economy of cars and trucks in
America, using hybrid technology and other advances.12  As a result, if you
buy a new car in the next few years, the better gas mileage is going to
save you about $3,000 at the pump.13

But we need to do more.  We need to harness the potential I’ve
seen at promising start-ups and innovative clean energy companies
across America.  And that’s at the heart of a debate we’re having
right now in Washington about the budget.14

Both Democrats and Republicans believe we need to reduce the
deficit.  That’s where we agree.  The question we’re debating
is how we do it.  I’ve proposed a balanced approach that cuts
spending while still investing in things like education and clean
energy that are so critical to creating jobs and opportunities for the
middle class.15
It’s a simple idea: we need to live within our means16 while at the same time
investing in our future.

That’s why I disagree so strongly with a proposal in Congress that cuts
our investments in clean energy by 70 percent. Yes, we have to get rid
of wasteful spending17
– and make no mistake, we’re going through every line of the budget
scouring for savings. But we can do that without sacrificing our future.18  We can
do that while still investing in the technologies that will create jobs
and allow the United States to lead the world in new industries.
That’s how we’ll not only reduce the deficit, but also lower our
dependence on foreign oil, grow the economy, and leave for our children
a safer planet.  And that’s what our mission has to be.

Thanks for listening, and have a great weekend.


  1. The current hard times are primarily the result
    of deliberate government policies designed to enrich a few Congressmen,
    administration officials and their crony capitalists.  They did
    nothing to deflate the .com bubble in the previous decade, and
    everything to create the real estate bubble.
  2. Though he projects a false image of care, concern
    & compassion for our plight, Obama is enjoying it. Our suffering is
    part of his plan of national destruction. Ruin to rule. There’s no
    wheat to bake bread, so “let them eat cake” while we “invest” in
    artificial flour. How do you like the flavor and texture of sawdust?
  3. The actions that would bring down the price and
    keep it down require a ten year lead time. The time to act was 1995.
    Slick Willy vetoed the necessary action. Had he not done so, we would
    be enjoying the price reducing effects of ANWAR’s oil supply right now.
    There is a ten year lag. That means that the artificial delays imposed
    by  Obamination will be hindering our economy for the next decade!
  4. Comparisons to previous years production levels
    are meaningless. Demand is up in Asia, causing the price to rise. We
    need to drastically and immediately increase our production to lower
    the cost and reduce our dependence on oil supplied by our enemies who
    use the revenue to finance terrorism.
  5. When you hear hoof beats, look for horses, not
    unicorns. The cause of oil inflation is public knowledge already:
    deliberately suicidal government policies.
  6. Obamination is exploiting the crisis for short
    term political game: playing the class warfare card. Government derives
    more profit from gasoline than the oil companies do. $.85 on every
    gallon goes to tax collectors.
  7. Yeah, right, decrease the oil company’s real
    disposable income through higher taxation, reducing cash available for
    exploration and production, throwing and keeping more people out of
    work, reducing supply, increasing the price so you can blame inflation
    on  big bad oil. The strategy is transparent, can’t you see
    through it?
  8. High volume accounts for those profits, not
    return on investment. Compare oil company ROI to that of other
    industries.
  9. We are dying right now. We can not wait for
    Christ to return and resurrect us.  We need short term and long
    term cures for this inflation cancer. More cancer is not the cure.
    Every potential alternative costs more. That is one reason why
    Obamination wants to drive the price up and keep it up, to make it
    possible to enrich his crony capitalists by making unprofitable,
    wasteful ‘investments’ pay off through artificially high prices. There
    is no economically feasible alternative to petroleum and there won’t be
    in our lifetimes.  Do the math. How many bthh are in a gallon of
    gasoline, and how many gallons do we consume every day?  What is
    the energy density of the alternatives?
  10. Invest in Snake Oil, the wonderful miracle cure
    for every affliction known to man and beast!
  11. We won’t reach the long term if we don’t survive
    the short term. Too many workers can’t afford to get to work and back
    home right now! We are bleeding; he offers platitudes & pie in the
    sky while we die.  Its time for him to go!
  12. Your friends in Hollywood can afford $50,000
    hybrids and $10,000 battery replacements. Real people can’t.
  13. Spend $30k to “save” 3k. How does that work out
    over a vehicle’s five year lifespan?  If volume dropped, they’d
    increase prices to maintain their revenues to meet fixed costs.  I
    hope the voters are not as stupid and gullible as Obamination assumes
    us to be.
  14. Quit pissing $$$ down the sewer chasing mirages
    and start doing what is possible right now and should have been done 15
    years ago!!! Drill here, drill now, save money.
  15. We need real jobs, not dreams & false
    promises. Windmills produce jobs in China. We can’t afford to drive 50
    miles to work, much less fly to China for it.
  16. Artificial inflation + tax increases does not
    equal “living within our
    means”.  That requires earning more and wasting less.
    Impeaching
    Obamination is the first step on the road to recovery.
  17. What is more wasteful than subsidizing ethanol
    for motor fuel, which induces starvation, inflates food prices and does
    nothing to solve the problem of oil price inflation?
  18. We sacrificed our present and our future when we
    elected you in a drunken stupor of charismatic intoxication.

The time has come for taking action. Go at once to http://www.congress.org/  sign up for a free
account and send an email to your Congressman & Senators. Include a
link to this blog post and disrespectfully demand articles of
Impeachment.  Tell them that if they make us wait another year, we
will throw them out with Obamination.

Obamination must be impeached, convicted and removed
from office. If Biden continues his policies, he must follow. We must
keep impeaching & convicting until we get a President who will
reverse Obamination’s suicidal policies entirely.

Contemptible Congress


A few minutes ago I returned from a two mile trip, one way by  bicycle, to the local Dollar General. My back pack contains:

  • 5# of all purpose flour @ $2.00, which was $1.25 a few months ago
  • 2# of pinto beans @ $1.50, which was $1.00 a few months ago.
  • 18oz. of peanut butter @ $1.65, which was $1.50 a few months ago.

Big deal, you say? Goddamn well it is! My income last year was $2,127. I can not afford this damned inflation.

The AssWholes in Congress caused this inflation by effectively outlawing the extensive domestic oil exploration production & refining necessary to counter the joint forces of OPEC and expanding development in Asia.

In ’95, Slick Willy vetoed a bill which would have allowed development of the ANWAR field. It would be producing now if Congress had over ridden the veto.  They did not vote to over ride because they want us to suffer. They want us to be in pain and angry,  hoping that our anger will be directed at the minority who voted for common sense.

I am pissed off! But my outrage is directed at the AssWholes who:

  • prevented domestic exploration, production & refining
  • mandated & subsidized grain ethanol production for use as motor fuel, policies that directly decrease the production of food stuff and increase its cost
  • join the chorus of the siren song of ‘global warming’ which is designed to facilitate seizure of money and power through oppressive taxes on energy.

The inflation about which I bitterly bitch does not result from the policies of corporations or their officers. It does not result from ‘price gouging’. It results from the deliberately detrimental policies of the Democrat Party and the AssKissing RINOS who enable them.

Senator John McCain, who recently flip flopped in favor of drilling, is one of them. If the Republican Party nominates that RINO AssWhole, they have no excuse!!! I urge Conservative Republicans to rise up in revolt disrespectfully demanding that McCain be dumped and replaced by a genuine Conservative able and willing to wage an effective campaign based on Conservative principles.

On November 4, one half of the House and one third of the Senate will be up for re-election.  Take that opportunity to remove from office those who voted for inflation and dependency on the only producing asset of our enemies.

Now is the time to go to http://www.congress.org and send an email to your Congressman & Senators disrespectfully demanding removal of the unreasonable barriers to domestic petroleum production & refining and nuclear power generation. Tell them you’ll remember in November, then do it.  If not us, who; if not now, when?
