An Odd Citizen’s Search For Vanishing Freedoms

The memorial structures and parks in Washington D.C. and elsewhere belong to the people, not to the government. The WW-II memorial celebrates the accomplishments of the soldiers who fought the war and the current government can’t take any credit, whatsoever, for that.
The behavior of the Obama administration, Harry Reid and his Democrat thugs in […]

Today I had a chore to retrieve a new 1099 from SSA on behalf of my elderly mother. A call to the 800 number yielded the conclusion that they couldn’t help me. I had to go to the local office, from which an employee could call my mother on the phone to get […]

Based on ammo purchases, it looks like your friendly federal government is planning to kill everyone in America — several times over! That’s 1.6 Billion rounds of hollow point ammo, 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles, and 2,000 armored vehicles — all for use by “civilian” agencies? Come on, people. Wake up. […]

One can see some excuse for the Department of Homeland Security to have some arms and ammunition, but what about the Social Security Administration and the Department of Education? Should each of these be stockpiling millions of rounds of ammunition? They claim it’s for training, but listen to Mark Levin’s comments, in which he […]

Speculation has Obama appointing that stinking pile of dog-shit , that traitor John Kerry as Secretary of State. As a combat veteran who served in the same area, the Mekong Delta and at the same time-frame as Kerry, who accused U.S. forces of committing war crimes, I take this as a personal insult […]

Here’s a really clever rundown on Barack Obama’s contention that government (run by Obama) is responsible for the success of all entrepreneurial businesses. The “You [the entrepreneur] didn’t build that. Someone else did.”
Enjoy! I don’t know who to thank for putting this together, but, of course, THEY DIDN’T BUILD THAT!

It just keeps getting worse. The Sun God president declares that he doesn’t need Senate confirmation for his appointments. He appoints the head of a toxic agency that is detached from congressional oversight and budgets, the so called Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The law and centuries-old practice regarding recess appointments has been […]

This story is actually a couple of weeks old. In the midst of swirling insanity characterized by President Obama’s “jobs” speech, the FBI’s evidence tampering in the Gun Walker scandal, the gyrating stock market, chaos in the middle east, and other matters — in the midst of all this the Gibson Guitar raid by […]

In keeping with the President’s penchant for hanging around with tax cheats who also preach higher taxes, such as Warren Buffett, the New York Post says:

This one’s truly, uh … rich: Billionaire Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes — but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid […]

The president and his political advisors apparently decided that their political advantage takes precedence over the dignity of fallen heroes and their families.

Pentagon officials had said that because 19 of 30 of the American families of the dead had objected to media coverage of the remains coming off a plane at Dover Air Force Base, […]

The arrogant Obamacrat bureaucrats at the FTC have announced that they will go fishing for something, anything bad at Google. Any successful company must be doing something bad according to this job killing philosophy.
The Obamacrat motto: “We must punish success.”

A most sensible observation I heard recently: “Wars are not ended. They are either won or lost.”
The president’s speech yesterday in which he announced a force reduction in Afghanistan then morphed into campaign mode was vintage Obama. Blah-Blah-Blah. The college professor proclaiming his rules for good living, which centered on you guessed […]

Mendacity obviously comes naturally to Mr. Obama. Read this article from the Washington Post in which the president spouts one deception after another in an attempt to justify the government’s bail-out of the automobile companies.
Obama’s lies about the auto bailout exposed
(Originally from Drudge Report)
But maybe it depends on what your definition of IS LIE […]

Should the President of the U.S. to be spending public funds to campaign for his own re-election? Should the White House support a propaganda department? Well, it does, and today it expanded its staffing. According to and article in the Huffington Post (via FishBowlNY reporting a memo from the WH “This […]

The Secret Service grills a 13 year old kid for an innocuous comment on his Facebook page. He warned that President Obama should be aware of threats in retaliation for Bin Laden’s death. See for yourself whether this is a case of over-reaction by our government. Do we really want to be […]

I’m waiting for President Obama to declare “I’m not a crook.” He has released a birth certificate that is obviously a forgery, and an incredibly amateur one at that. See below and on numerous other sites.

Is this just another example of the “Chicago way”? Don’t take that as an excuse. […]

Air traffic controllers sleeping on the job: Good enough for government work.
TSA frisking children: Good enough for government work.
President Obama’s budget speech of 4/13/11: A disgrace. This pack of lies, illusions and evasions is not even good enough for government work.
The president engaged in class warfare of the most vile sort. The rich have […]

Mark Levin nails it. President Obama refuses to ensure that the military are paid during a government shutdown …. because he’s a Marxist who hates the U.S. And we have this sack of crap for a commander in chief of the armed forces? Listen below:

It makes me angry. It should anger you […]

In a March 26, 2011 editorial for the Wall Street Journal, Senator John Kerry wrote:

On Monday I shook hands with young Egyptians and listened to them speak of their hopes for their country. At a town-hall meeting I could sense some questioning whether the United States would really be there when it counted. I was […]

In the Libyan matter.

Without leadership the “coalition” turns into a brawl.
The U.S. is doing all the work while the Europeans squabble in the absence of U.S. leadership.

While the Beanie In Chief Puts a Spin on it.
It is a disgrace to our country and an insult to our armed forces to have our troops committed to […]

It has gotten slicker and slicker. The Obama White House has a very impressive and undoubtedly very expensive web site to promote the President’s agenda and image. See: Here.
Now they even have their own I-Phone “App” so you can get a call whenever the Prez. decides you need more info. I wonder […]


Here’s a story everyone should read about the total idiocy of our Federal Government, particularly but not limited to the TSA. (from http://RedState.com )

TSA search of soldiers returning from war.
A bureaucracy is an organization specifically designed to relieve anyone participating in it from taking responsibility for anything it does or making any judgment or decision […]

The current bruhaha over TSA’s naked body/grope screening is symptomatic of Federal attitudes towards everyone. In the “mind” of the bureaucracy, we’re all potential criminals and miscreants.
Just take note of the signage at any Federal facility, post office, park, government office building, etc. The first thing you’ll notice is a series of stern […]

Our tax-supported National Public Radio today published “Partner content from THE NEW REPUBLIC” entitled The New Republic: The Morality Of Taxing The Rich, by Johathan Cohn. If you’re still mystified about the mindset of leftists this is an excellent tutorial.
Among Mr.Cohen’s rationales for taxing the “rich” are that a) the rich got their wealth […]

Deep within the Health Care legislation was buried a provision to expand 1099 reporting to cover nearly all business transactions — a stealth move by congress. More stealth consisted of a government takeover of the student loan program — within the Health legislation. Within the Financial Reform bill are hidden regulations regarding racial […]

Brian Riedl published a report for the Heritage Foundation entitled: New CBO Budget Baseline Shows that Soaring Spending—Not Falling Revenues—Risks Drowning America in Debt. The title might just as well have been “The President and Congress are Killing America.” See an abstract from the report below and click the link to read the […]

Behind the scenes of the Jihaddi-Mosque controversy, hidden from view by pictures of the Sun God bathing in the Gulf of Mexico, and the catastrophe in Pakistan, behind all of this is the ongoing frenetic activity of the Sun God’s leftist wrecking crew as they take crow bars and hammers to America’s natural resource industries. […]

In an article describing the terror group Hamas’ endorsement for the ground zero mosque, the author goes on to report that:
Abdul Rauf raised eyebrows last week when he departed on a State Department-sponsored goodwill mission to the Middle East, despite concerns that the trip may be helping him with the mosque’s $100 million fund-raising goal. […]

“(CNSNews.com) – The Obama administration is backing legislation that includes regulations requiring U.S. businesses to provide to the government data about employee pay as it relates to the sex, race and national origin of employees.” They call it the “Paycheck Fairness Act.”
Along with their other oppressive new regulations on bank transactions, 1099’s for all […]
