Patience Is Over and George is Gone

George Bush made way too many mistakes during his administration. The first four years were considerably better than the last four however, when he somehow coasted away from his conservative Republican tendencies. On a scale of A to F, he and his administation deserves certainly no better than a C- or D+ . . . . BUT COMPARED TO MR. OBAMA AND HIS ADMINISTRATION  Bush looks pretty good.

George Bush didn't need a teleprompter to get through a press conference.

George Bush didn't burn 9000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single EARTH DAY tree.

George Bush didn't reduce retirement holdings in GM by 90% and then give UNIONS a majority holding of GM stock.

George Bush didn't appoint cabinet officers and a staff of advisors who somehow consistantly failed to pay their income taxes.

The Bush and Obama administrations have agreed to using nearly 13 TRILLION DOLLARS for loands and bailouts.

George Bush didn't order the firing of the CEO of a major corporation KNOWING THAT HE HAD NO AUTHORITY TO DO SO.

The economic bailouts in the last couple of months total more than the Korean War cost, more thant the New Deal, More than the entire Iraq mess, more than the 1980's Savings & Loan mess.......COMBINED!

Why does the Federal Reserve Board refuse to account for 2 TRILLION DOLLARS when asked by Congress to do so? 

George Bush didn't create 32 czars who report to him directly and by-pass the HOUSE AND SENATE altogether.

It usually bothers me when people make mean spirited and personal comments about politicians. Any politicians. But when a politician does things that are wrong, or says things that are not true, or does something illegal, he or she should expect to hear about it.  But personal attacks really don't help.

I am about to bend my own rule. We have a current President and political administration that has defied all rules, lied to everyone, and broken the law. They refuse to recognise the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence, all of which form the foundation of our government. The current administration chooses to ignore these documents. They also ignore American traditions and distort the tenets of our history. Harsh criticism is deserved.

When Mr. Obama campaigned he ran against ex-presidents Bush and Clinton, understanding how unhappy the voters were with both. His opponent, John McCain, never quite found a message. He was unable to distance himself from the Bush administration - and the voters thought he would bring more of the same to the office. To breath life into his campaign he added Sarah Palin to the ticket. She brought plain speaking, good looks, and a lively personality to his side. It helped, but no cigar. I don't believe anyone was convinced that she should be one heart beat away from the Presidentcy. 

In 2008 Republicans voted the Republican ticket, Independents didn't, and Mr. Obama squeaked by on the Democrat ticket. There was no landslide, but he won the office. The people I know [Republican, Independent, or Democrat] were happy to see a black person elected. They were not so thrilled by his liberal background, but regardless, they held their breath and waited to see how he would proceed.  

The nightmare began on his first day, and within a few months America's patience was exhausted. The grumbling began and now, a year later,  America is beginning to talk about impeachment. Mr. Obama believes that he is a victim of stupid citizens. Like P.T Barnum, the guy who said; "don't worry, there's a sucker born every minute,"  he honestly believes only he knows the way forward - no matter who or how many disagree. To President Obama, the majority of the American public are stupid suckers. Those who voted for Mr. Obama, to their everlasting shame,  allowed him and his lunatic administration grease their way into office. America will recover - but we will feel the pain for generations.

My friend, you seem to have found your conservative voice, and I for one am glad to hear its clarity.
But in doing so you seem to have lost some of your following...
The self described "moderate" lefties that populate your blogroll.
You've noticed it. I've noticed it. When you have absolutely NAILED one of them to the wall with a question or fact that makes them uncomfortable, they either change the subject or disappear.

In your case, they seem to have vanished into thin air. And that's a shame...
I sort of enjoyed the thought of some of them squirming with the mental picture of our possible future, with an Islamic extremist using a cane against their backsides.

Bill Whittle has a new video out at PJTV that you and other rational thinkers will enjoy.
The truth shall set you free.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

The Reluctant Liberal

I've a grandson that has been exposed to political liberalism all his life. In it's modern version the words "left wing" means the liberal side of politics, and "right wing" describes the more conservative side. In our two party system each term may be used to describe a member of either party. Believe it or not, there are a few conservative Democrats.
Today, the Democratic Party has become  overwhelmingly "liberal" and the Republican Party more conservative.  At times it has been difficult to find enough reasonable cooperation between parties and that is, unfortunately, how it is today. With President Trump now in the saddle, the Democratic Party has refused any level of cooperation -  and our government has slowed to a walk.

The simple explanation is probably the correct one. The hard left wing, usually members of the Democratic Party, allows no other point of view. They each consider moderate and conservative opposing ideas to have no merit. This…
