Posts Tagged ‘clinton’

If any of you are followers of The Drudge Report as I am – you know that he doesn’t categorize any of his links – but – they are loosely categorized in that he puts related stories together.  On today’s page – here is what I found:

Is he trying to imply something?  Why would he tuck in a story about herpes treatment right after two stories about the Clintons, specifically one about Billy Boy being in Vegas?  Surely, this article has nothing to do with the following one about deficits.

Just wondering! ;)

We have a great carnival this week folks! Lot’s of really lively submissions to comment on. Make sure you stop by the blogs of my contributors and let them know your opinions about their submissions.

Conservative

Phil B. presents End All Foreign Aid posted at Phil for Humanity, saying, “In 2008, the United States gave an estimated 26 billion dollars in foreign aid to other countries. For free… Yup, the U.S. government continues giving away your hard earned tax dollars.”

100% in agreement Phil.  In today’s economy, it makes absolutely no sense that we continue to send $billions to other countries when we could use it here.  Obama has plans to nearly double that with a price tag of $50 Billion!!  He’s gonna bankrupt this country. Seems he cares more about other countries than he does America.

Rich Bordner presents Epic Fail: Planned Parenthood Shows its True Colors…Again « The Pugnacious Irishman posted at The Pugnacious Irishman, saying, “Planned Parenthood has it backwards–rather than being angry at Lila Rose for exposing wickedness in their ranks, why aren’t they angry at the PP workers who would fail to protect girls by turning a blind eye to sex abuse?”

I saw that report a month ago on the Glenn Beck show when he interviewed Lila Rose.  Planned Parenthood has only one agenda – to increase the number of abortions in this country.  They don’t counsel young girls on pregnancy prevention and they certainly won’t bring law enforcement in to their midst even when it is mandated by law.  Great post.  I completely forgot about this.

Scott Spiegel presents If At First You Don’t Succeed, Fail, Fail Again! posted at Scott Spiegel.

Scott – a great compilation of Obama’s “accomplishments” in the last 5 months.  While I am a believer that success comes out of learning from failure – I’m afraid there won’t be any success from these failures.  Good post.

Phil B. presents Why Conservatives are typically not Conservationists too? « Phil for Humanity posted at Phil for Humanity, saying, “Have you wondered why most conservatives are not conservationists?”

Do you really believe that?  I believe in conservation – and I guess this goes to one of your other points – because it conserves my money.  I have solar panels on my roof, all energy star rated products, I recycle, I installed low-flow toilets, and low flow water regulators on my faucets, and I had my energy company put the governors on my meter to regulate and turn off the power during low peak hours.  As a result, I’m saving a considerable amount of money every month.  I think if more conservatives knew just how much money they could “conserve” more would jump on the bandwagon.

Silicon Valley Blogger presents 12 Ways To Beat Inflation: Don’t Let Rising Prices Get You Down posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “I offer several ways to beat inflation. It’s in the horizon, don’t you think? Find out how to address it before it comes.”

Great list!  As I commented on your site, some of these tips I’m already following, or doing, others were good common sense ideas that I hadn’t even thought about.  Thanks for being a regular contibutor and for providing such valuable tips and pointers given today’s economy.  I would recommend my readers to do as I did, check out this post and then print it off for future reference – or at a minimum – bookmark the page.

The Smarter Wallet presents Find Business Success In A Bad Economy: Managing A Failing Business posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “Is it still possible to find business success in a troubled economy? I investigate how business owners can survive the slowdown by keeping tabs on the bigger picture.”

I was considering buying in to a franchise (I won’t detail who and what here) and have been having some serious second thoughts about it.  While I realize this post was primarily tips for staying above water if you already own a business, I found that these tips also are helping to work through my decision.  As always, another great resources for my readers.

Liberal

Linda Jones presents 25 Shocking Facts About Chinese Censorship posted at Online College.org.

Hi Linda.  I’m not so sure of your age, but, these aren’t really shocking.  These are pretty well known.  It’s because of these basic human rights issues that many of we Conservatives opposed Clinton giving them “favored nation status” back in the ’90′s.  They are our biggest trading partner – yet – we don’t do anything to have them address things like this.  This list is minor compared to what they are physically doing to their people.

Holly presents Obama’s Excuse for Not Overturning “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” – “It’s a Generational Issue” posted at Menstrual Poetry.

Hi Holly – thanks for allowing me to post this up in the carnival.  We’ll take this one piece at a time.  First – you stated “Obama knows that about 75% of the American public supports the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” It would have been nice if you sourced that.  I searched everywhere and could not find a poll that stated that. Actually the latest gallup poll shows that 69% of Americans would support gays in the military.  However, what this poll doesn’t do is ask those in the military, or those who would consider military service, what their opinion is. Also – based on the tone of your post – it almost sounds like you are finally waking up to the fraud that Obama is that we on the right tried to warn you guys about.  Now to speak to the issue – Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.  First of all, I was against this legislation to begin with.  I was serving in the USAF when this was instituted.  The way our military was set up should have been left alone to begin with.  Sodomy is a UCMJ offense and homosexuals were run out immediately – as it should be.  There is no room for gays serving “openly” in our military.  Here’s why:

1. Have you ever heard of “blanket parties” – they exist.  Anyone who “openly” serves in our military will repeatedly find themselves on the receiving end of a blanket party.  They’ll be run out by our service members.

2. You would have to change the UCMJ to punish those who have a religious belief that being gay is abnormal and an abomination to God.  This would be against the First Amendment.

3. Machismo is alive and well in our military.  Anyone serving “openly” in the military would be treated as a pariah. No one will want to serve with that individual and it would be well known to that individual.  You would be putting that individual in harms way and putting undue stress on him/her.

4. It would kill the morale of our military members.

5. You would have to redesign all of the military barracks or make separate “shower times” for the openly gay.  In case you did not know – barrack living means communal showers.  It is not a matter of being a homophobe or anything like that – neither straight women nor straight men in the military want to be in the showers with someone that is openly gay.  YOU might find this ridiculous – but – it is the truth.

6. If you openly allow gays in the military and start punishing those in the military who oppose it, it will destroy our military.  Straight people won’t be signing up and those who are in won’t re-enlist.

If they do repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – it needs to be back to what it was before Clinton put it in.  Gays are not welcome to openly serve in the military.

Libertarian

Chris presents Senate Proposes “Health Tax” on Fittest Americans posted at Martial Development, saying, “Does the government know how to best manage everyone’s health? It sure seems to think so…”

Given the choice – I would say hell no!  The government needs to stay out of our lives and stop “forcing” Americans to make choices.  This is America – the land of the free where we get to decide our own fates.  It is not the government’s job to take care of the people nor is it their job to make other people take care of those who refuse to take care of themselves.  Universal Health Insurance is not the answer.  Making access to affordable healthcare is the key.  The government plan just benefits the government and the insurance companies.

Martin Russell presents “Conspiracy of the Rich”- A Review posted at Word of Mouth Marketing.

Martin, I’ve been a big fan of Kiyosaki ever since I bought his first book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad.” I didn’t even know he had this new book out. Based on your review of this book, it is very relevant today and a must read – especially for those of us who have been buying his other books.  This guy has been right on for quite some time.

News

debergerac78 presents Make sure your entire company knows your ethics policies! posted at The Business Ethics Blog, saying, “The Washington Post’s business division appears to be offering lobbyists and association executives an exclusive chance to meet key Obama administration officials and members of Congress–for a considerable fee. The Post seems to have gone from newspaper to match-maker.”

Debergerac – thanks for bringing this to our attention.  Just further proof of the erosion and decline of journalism.

Archvillain presents I Apologize to the Gnats posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “By comparison with the American public, the attention span of gnats spans centuries … and they’re less likely to get distracted by celebutainment.”

Archvillain – as always – your observations and comparisons are spot on. In case it wasn’t made painfully obvious with Honduras, with Obama siding with despots and dictators, his policy on non-intervention in Iran becomes oh so clear – he is more comfortable with those who oppose democracy.  You are right – the majority of the people in this country aren’t paying attention.  Our Iranian friends were crying out to America for help, and Obama turned his back on them in favor of supporting their leaders.  You gotta wonder where this country his headed with leadership like that.

Jared Rhoads presents Tea Party posted at The Lucidicus Project, saying, “The July 4th Tea Party protests in Boston were a success. Here is a brief report, with photos.”

Jared – awesome – thanks for sharing.  Did you notice how there was absolutely no coverage of any of these T.E.A. Parties in the MSM?  You stated “10′s of thousands” showed up on April 15th.  Actually, it was estimated to be about 250,000 across the country.  On July 4th there were about 1,500 protests across the country (compared to April’s 750) with some of those reaching in the 10′s of thousands themselves. It’s really hard to find solid numbers because the MSM refuses to report on them.

Rick Foreman presents Universal Health Care: It Just Makes Sense posted at Waiting for the Singularity.

Wow, Rick.  You obviously are basing your ideas on emotion versus fact.  Considering I am starting my dissertation in August earning my Ph.D. in Public Health – I can give you many factually based responses why Universal Health care is not the way to go.  However, I will limit it to just one main factor – if I started raising all the issues – it will turn my response in to a separate post (which I think I will do in response to your proposition) – the main reason against Universal Health care is:  Rationing.  The entire universal healthcare system is based on rationing of health care – something our current system does not do. Here are a list of resources you should read:

Cookson, R. & Dolan, P. (1999). Public views on health care rationing: a group discussion study. Health Policy, 49(1), (63-74).

Cookson, R. & Dolan, P. (2000). Principles of Justice in Health Care Rationing. British Medical Journal, 26, (323-329).

Strosberg, M.A., Wiener, J.M., & Baker, R. (1993). Rationing America’s Medical Care: The Oregon Plan and Beyond. Critical Care Medicine. Washington D.C.: Brookings Institute Publishers.

Schut, F.T., & Van de Ven, W.P.M.M. (2005). Rationing and competion in the Dutch health-care system. Health Economics, 14(S1), (S59-S75).

Once you understand this – we’ll talk again.  The bottom line is that the government makes the decisions on who is allowed access to health care based on a cost-benefit analysis – not on what is right for you.  They look at your age and current state of health compared to the costs to the state for the care required.  Do you really want the government to make decisions about your health care needs based on their fiscal budgets?

Politics

Super Saver presents A Crisis Wasted posted at My Wealth Builder.

Yup – saw that one coming!  At some point he’s gonna have to stop blaming Bush for his own failures.  He still uses the excuse that he inherited this problem.  Well, he inherited a $750 Billion deficit.  He has already tripled that in 5 months with it anticipated to quadruple by the end of the year.  He clearly let everyone know exactly how his administration was going to be run when he said “We won.”  Now, Pelosi and Reid are repeating that mantra.  Sure, the Dems won, but America lost.  I hope we can find some way of turning this around before we hit that point of no return.  Unless the administration and Obama start letting in some common sense, they will continue to spend this country out of control.

UPDATE!!!!! Apparently, Ashton Lundeby is a punk kid that makes prank phone calls regularly – and his mother knows it.  Here’s the updated story from LewRockwell.com.  At this point – the mother has lost all credibility and the kid can stay under lock and key for as long as the feds want.

I apologize to my readers – but – when I googled this story yesterday – and the fact I originally found it from an MSM news website – I did not find anything at that time that disputed what was reported.

Still – after searching all the links given in comment section from several people (mostly, Anok) – I still am no longer supporting The Patriot Act.

____________________________________________________________

My apologies to Barry Broom.  While he and I both agree that we don’t trust our government – I was willing to give the government the benefit of the doubt with regards to The Patriot Act.  Very interesting, I was just stating to Barry Broom – in response to his submission to the last Carnival of Politics that I was in support of The Patriot Act – and I asked him to name one instance where an American citizen has ever been held in violation of their rights.

Well – I found it – today.  This is absolutely disgusting what the government has done.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about – here’s the full story – you’ll have to go read it and come back here as it is fully copyrighted – I can’t pull it over to here.

Mom says Patriot Act stripped son of due process

I’m sorry – but this is an absolute abuse of the power given to the government.  This is a 16 year old – homeschooled kid – and absolutely no evidence has been found to support the government’s case.  It sounds to me like the mother’s account is correct.  I also have to agree with her that this is abuse of the power given to the government and this was not the intention of The Patriot Act.

This is America for crying out loud.  We don’t just go raiding homes in the dark of night and abduct 16 year-old kids from their homes without justification – do we?  Oh – wait – didn’t the Clinton Administration do the same think to a young Cuban kid – 5 year-old Elian Gonzalez?

I hereby revoke my support of The Patriot Act.  Had this been done under the Bush administration you can bet this would have been headline news all across the country by now.  Our government has gotten way out of control – and Obama is just continuing his march towards complete and total control over this country.  You guys on the left – is this the change you wanted?  Surely, you can’t possibly agree with Obama on this one can you?  You guys were screaming the loudest when The Patriot Act was first enacted.  Funny, isn’t it?  This kind of abuse of power using the Patriot Act NEVER occurred during Bush’s tenure.

You guys on the left need to WAKE UP and get over your freakin’ crush on Teh One.  You guys have become his useful idiots.  Stop carrying his water and actually do what it is that you guys do best – speak out against abuse of power – EVEN when it means its your guy that’s doing it.  This is no longer a left versus right thing – this is about American citizens against our abusive government.

UPDATE – Thanks and a big h/t to Barry Broom for finding this.  The following is a VERY detailed account of what happened – this kid has a very clear and air tight alibi – so what’s going on here?

Free Ashton Lundeby – from LewRockwell.com

It was bad enough that Hillary, on behalf of TEH ONE, gave that terrorist organization, HAMAS, $900 Million last week to rebuild an area only 125 square miles.  NOW – I found out today that we’re also going to pay for their education!

Clinton Announces Million-Dollar Scholarship Program for Palestinian Students

WTF people?  Where the hell are the million-dollar scholarships for our soldiers and anybody else that has been involved in combating terrorism?  Where the hell are the million-dollar scholarships for our “disadvantaged” kids?  Is there any doubt now that the retard up there running this country is pro-muslim, anti-Israel?  Sure, lets give these islamofascists our taxpayer dollars to bring them to this country so they can find other targets.

It isn’t over yet people – Congress hasn’t passed it yet.  Make sure you call your senators and congresspersons and tell them NOT to give those terrorists any of our taxpayer dollars.

I’m so pissed off right now it’s not even funny!  We’re in a freakin’ economic tailspin – and we’re giving close to a billion dollars to a terrorist organization to re-arm and to educate them?  Where the f*ck is my duct tape?  Go read that article for yourselves – and – bring your duct tape with ya.  How the hell can we stop this madness?  Now would be a great time for Netanyahu to just wipe that scum off the face of the earth – it will save us money and save countless number of Israeli lives.

Okay – so I watched the inauguration today.  I really didn’t have any interest in watching the overblown and overpriced festivities – but – what the heck – I got a free lunch out of the deal!  While the festivities still continue today – I am most certainly glad this is over.  I’m hoping this Obamamania shit will start to cool down soon.  I wonder just how many idiots out there are buying all this so-called memorabilia?  Have you seen it?  A one dollar bill with a gold-leaf image of Obama painted on it – for $19.95.  A one dollar coin with Obama’s image silk-screened on it for $19.95.  Come on people – you’re spending $20.00 for $1.00!!!!  As a serious pneumismatist – I can tell you that those coins and bills will NEVER be worth the price you’re paying for them.  As a matter of fact, by painting on those coins and bills they are now forever “damaged” in the pneumismatist world.  They have no re-sell value.  Anyway, enough of that.

I think what got me the most during the inauguration was that once again he proved that he is a bumbler when it comes to speaking without a teleprompter – even when he was fed the words – he stumbled on the oath of office.  Not only did he stumble, so did his vice president.

In addition to his stumbling – the stock markets today fell 4% – below the 8,000 mark since November.  It is anticipated that it is going to continue to fall throughout the rest of the week.  If Obama is supposed to be so good for the economy and for business – then can someone please tell me why there is no confidence in the market?

I see both of these as omens of what is to come for this country.  Obama is trying to triangulate and move to the middle and in doing so – he’s already pissed off his far-left-loony followers.  But, his socialist tendencies to spread the wealth and his tax and spend policy is already affecting confidence in the business sector and he just started his job today.

Considering this is actually Clinton’s third term – well – all of the Clinton administration’s third term and the damage they caused this country – we will be in a full blown depression before Obama can finish out his first term.  If there is anything to learn from the Bush administration – it is you can’t spend your way out of a problem.  Bush started this bullshit wheel rolling with the damned bailouts – and now Obama will just continue pushing that wheel down the hill and taking this country down with him.

While I am not looking forward to the socialist Obama agenda – I am most certainly looking forward to breaking down every lame brained scheme he comes up with.  For, as I see it, he will be his own undoing come 2012.  Obama will be a one-term President with his socialist tendencies and with the worst Congress in history being led by the two worst house and senate leaders in history.

Bring it on, bub!

Has there been any reporting lately of whether or not the Clintons have paid off their campaign debts yet?  Last we heard, Obama had asked his supporters to help out.  Funny thing is – with that $650 million that he raised – surely he could have helped out!

I also understand that none of his supporters came to the Clinton’s aide!

So – we now have headines reporting today of some bailout money being doled out or requested:

Bush wants $25B in loans released to carmakers

I sure as hell hope that doesn’t happen!  Again, being the true capitalist that I am, I say – let them fail!  Plus, considering Barney Frank is asking for a government stake in these companies should we bail them out – I say HELL NO!  We don’t need a nationalized auto-industry.  Part of the reason they are failing is because of government regulation and interference.  If you really want to help out the auto-makers – 1.) get rid of all those stifling regulations you have, 2.) Move them out of Detroit, and 3.) Get the damned unions out of there – union costs and forced benefits make up a little over 30% of the total cost of the car!

Mayors of Philadephia and Phoenix seek bailout share

Holy freakin’ shit already?  They want part of the $700B bailout package because:

“The mayors sought help with their pension costs, infrastructure investment and cash-flow problems stemming from the global financial crisis”

I got a little tip for you guys – CUT YOUR SPENDING!  CUT BACK on the waste in your city budgets!

And, this next one – all I can say it – You gotta be outta your freakin’ mind.  They really have the balls to ask.

Freddie seeks government aid after $25.3B loss

Go to freakin’ hell!  It was partly the fault of this organization run by Democrat insiders that we’re in this freakin’ mess to begin with!  I say, fuck you!  I can’t even believe you have the nerve coming to the American people asking for a damned handout!  Knowing Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, and Obama who have been the largest recipients of their charity – I’m sure somehow there will be some arm-twisting to make sure they get some!

Good lord!  Next thing you know. Mexico is going to ask for some of that bailout money!  What? You don’t think it could happen?  It already did – once before – under Clinton.

And..NOW – NOW – Bush comes out saying we need to keep government out of private business?  You idiot! What the hell do you think just happened with that $700B bailout package you approved?  You put government right smack dab in the middle of private business!

Seriously, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Clinton’s didn’t ask for a slice.  You know, considering Hillary is a possible candidate for Secretary of State now!  Is that freakin’ hillyarious or what?  Surely, she can’t have debt like that hanging over her head if she’s to be the representative of this country abroad.  That is a huge national security risk.  So – like I said – it wouldn’t surprise me if the government bails her out of her debt!
