If Wishes Were Fishes… Obama’s Pond Would Overflow.

But they (wishes) are not (fishes) and those nasty and hateful TEABAGGERS pulled the plug on the pond. Shucks, seems like a feller just can’t have any fun any more. Well, President Obama, it hasn’t been any fun out here for Americans for a very long time. Now, you can keep going back to the well and dredging up the specter of the Bush administration all you want. Goodness knows I’ve taken him and his Republican Congress on often enough. In many ways his failure to stand up to the runaway spending in his own government set the stage for the recession we began experiencing in 2008.

Bush had recognized the danger represented by the various manifestations of the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, which essentially lowered standards for mortgage lending. Subsequent efforts by Democrats resulted in lowering the bar even farther, setting up the sub-prime disasters we’re now familiar with. A stronger George Bush, in control of a Republican majority in both House and Senate, might have taken on the Democrats over the financial time bomb he knew was ticking away. But as usual he and the Republicans allowed the left to control the message.

I’d love to understand why the Republicans allowed the left to turn the message on them starting back with the Civil Rights Movement. It’s as if they were afraid to stand up to the left and answer their lies and charges for what they were. Barack Obama has certainly gotten a lot of mileage (so he thinks) out of George Bush. The problem with that is the same as the other reasons Obama’s pond has gone dry. We were looking for the post-modern CENTRIST he portrayed himself as. What we got was the prancing pony sprinting as hard and fast to the left as he could with a smorgasbord of hard core leftists right behind him.

He quickly outlined his Socialist Menu for this country, which he hoped would be enabled by the economic chaos created by the SUB-PRIME MORTGAGE CRISIS, a crisis you may recall which was engendered largely by Democrat policy and irresponsibility. Obama did everything in his and the Democrat Congress’s power to force his Marxian policies on the American people, who were initially in panic mode and were definitely slow on the uptake. Remember Rahm Emanuel, “Never let a crisis go to waste”?

Fortunately for us God, America’s love of freedom, the Patriot Movement, the Internet, and Conservative broadcasting changed all that. Obama’s attempted takeover and eventual enslavement of the American people backfired. Now there is much talk of bi-partisan this and bi-partisan that, when in January the Democrats, in their overweening arrogance, were changing the locks on the House Conference rooms locking out Republican Representatives. What a difference a couple of months makes!

Put in plain old fashioned language…these Democrat cretins are headed for a butt kicking next November of historic proportions. It’s all because of you, my fellow patriots. There is not a single reason for Republicans to accommodate or make ‘deals’ with this administration. They have not changed. They are still bent on the destruction of our way of life, and so far they’ve done a pretty damned good job of it. They will not change. Remember the snake in the high grass? He’s still there…and he still bites…

Do Americans Still Have What It Takes? I Say Yes!


I have a friend who insists that Americans have been emasculated. That somehow we just aren’t what we used to be. I take umbrage with a world view that American exceptionalism has somehow fallen by the wayside. It’s very true that the liberals would LIKE to see an androgynous Homo-Americanus that they could mold into their perverted Utopian one-size-fits-all Marxian world.

The 1960s produced some startling social demographic changes starting with the ’sexual revolution’. It’s also true that they made some inroads in that direction by the attempted feminization of the male population through the radical feminist movement, with the resultant ‘compliant’, ’sensitive’ male that we’ve heard described as ‘metro-sexual’ and other less savory descriptions. It’s significant that when they obtain the resultant male they’d been looking to produce, they weren’t satisfied with him either and went around complaining that men aren’t masculine and assertive. The other problematic half of that equation is that the type of female that is produced by adherence to feminist ideals is not the kind of woman a real male wants anyway.

1960s Feminist Demonstration.

I don’t intend to demean feminists. They are what they are and they do what they do. Just don’t get mad at us if we don’t care to play in that ball court.

America was drugged to sleep in the 1960’s. We had a steady drumbeat of socialist dogma coming from our news media and our universities. We had hundreds of thousands of American men fighting a war thousands of miles from home that was never CLEARLY defined for the American people, and an active communist fifth column operating pretty much in the open in our schools. The main stream Americans, the ones no one ever heard from in what is now called fly-over country, knew pretty much only what the available news media of the day was telling them and its message had already been largely usurped by the liberal hard left, which was also making inroads into the Democratic party.

The long overdue civil rights movement, which it should be remembered was opposed ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY BY DEMOCRATS, was piggy-backed into the “Great Society” of President Lyndon Johnson and was a democrat-for-life social welfare modern plantation system that exists to this day. Keeping minorities in poverty rather than lifting them from it. Still, Americans embraced what was good in it and the result has been a far more integrated and color blind society.

President Lyndon B. Johnson

The advent of talk radio, the internet and instantaneous communications have changed everything. The lies of the left no longer go undisputed. In fact, they are usually challenged in minutes instead of hours or days. We as a people began to start paying attention to what our kids were being taught in our public schools. We came out of the haze that had been produced by the frenetic 60 hour working weeks of the 80s and 90s and saw what our resultant inattention had wrought. We saw our country and our freedoms being stolen from us.

Another miracle occurred… we started talking to each other. People from all over this country rediscovering what is meant by AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM and the blessings that are the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – that it is our duty and sacred trust to maintain the freedoms that have been gained at so great a price. Millions upon millions of Americans are rising up and saying HELL NO!

This is it. This is the new year. This is 2010. This is the YEAR OF THE CONSERVATIVE REVOLUTION. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!!
