Fewer “Birds” For Taxpayers
    For years West Virginia Senator Robert Byrd gave taxpayers “the bird” through his extensive use of earmarks.  It’s difficult to find a county in West Virginia that doesn’t have a ‘monument’ to Byrd’s prodigious use of pork!!

You can take the Robert C. Byrd Highway to the Robert C. Byrd Locks and Dam, explore space through the Robert C. Byrd Telescope, and work at the Robert C. Byrd Hilltop Office Complex.

In 1999–for the first time in American history–Byrd reached ONE BILLION DOLLARS in annual earmarks for a single state!! 

Why The Minority ‘Rules’ The Majority

The map is a county-by-county breakout of the 2008 presidential election.   The ‘red counties’ were won by the republicRATs; the ‘blue counties’ were won by the obamacRATs.
    As we all are acutely, painfully aware, obama/biden won the general election with 69,499,428{67.8%};  McCain and Palin were the ‘first losers’ with 59,950,323{32.2%}. Here are some underlying stastics that clearly show the screwin’ the working man and woman take in every statewide and national election–nearly EVERY ELECTION conducted in America:

  1. The Republicans won 80 percent of this country, when measured by acreage.
  2. McCain got a majority of votes in 2,417,000 square miles of the United States.
  3. “Clown Prince” obama, by comparison, won in just 580,000 square miles, a mere TWENTY PERCENT of the total land mass of the United States.
  4. The total population of counties won by replublicRATs was 143 million,
  5. The total population of counties won by obamacRATs was 127 million.

Basically, the Democrats swept the populations centers—the cities and more populated suburban areas—while the Republicans won everything else.

    If map above was overlaid with one showing the distribution of food stamps, unemployment checks, subsidized housing and other welfare payments, the result would be practically a duplicate of the voting map!! The overwhelming majority of voters in the red areas pay more into government than they receive; while just the opposite is true in the blue areas. 45 percent of adults in America pay no income taxes at all. One more ‘interesting’ statistic is the murder rate–per 100,000 residents–in the counties won be each presidential candidate:

obama/biden=13.2


McCain/Palin=2.1

    This brings to mind a quote by Alexander Fraser Tytler, often used when discussing ‘democracy’ and it’s normal life span:

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

    The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

  1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
  2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
  3. From courage to liberty;
  4. From liberty to abundance;
  5. From abundance to complacency;
  6. From complacency to apathy;
  7. From apathy to dependence;
  8. From dependence back into bondage.

    The country is now in the latter stages, my guess is somewhere around numbers 5,6 or 7.  If you can fathom it, try to guess where you and I–dear taxpayer–will be if some group can’t or won’t “get their dander up” and stand in opposition to “Clown Prince” obama and the rest of the fascists in the congress??
If no one does, I’m not so sure I want to visit the result!!

How Can “Clown Prince” obama’s Ego Take It?

    It has been ‘close enough to exactly’ one year ago that obama’s Presidential Tracking Poll number was in positive territory. On 01/29/2009, the “Clown Prince’s” number was……wait for it…… ONE–FOR THE LAST TIME IN POSITIVE TERRITORY!!  Scott Rasmussen’s [ http://www.rasmussenreports.com ] Presidential Daily Tracking Poll is figured thus: the 25% ‘strongly approve’ is subtracted from the 40% ‘strongly disapprove’ leaving the daily tracking number of -15.  Had the ‘strongly approve’ value been larger than the ‘strongly disapprove’ value, the result would have been a positive daily tracking number.  On obama/Soros’ current path, not likely to happen!!

 Civilian Control Of Military An ABSOLUTE MUST!!
As a former member of two branches of the military, I whole-heartedly support the ‘civilian control’ concept.  Most founding fathers were adamantly infavor of this control, primarily to ensure a smoothly run, stable government.  Without it, America would be in constant upheaval, monthly uprisings ending with an annual military coup and change in government.  Come to think of it…. When the Handler Group realizes that the  the “Clown Prince” won’t keep ‘his crown’ for another four years they’ll insist that obama be appointed a 36-star general and officially turn the U.S. into a third-world rathole dictatorship.

“Clown Prince” obama Approves Of Voter Intimidation!
[The obama ‘Handler Group’ certainly approves of voter intimidation, of course depending upon which voter is intimidated.  This is such a blatant travesty of justice I can’t fathom how or why Soros would allow the case to be dismissed the way it was.  Given the ‘Handler Group’ and their demands of one-sided justice, maybe we’d be better off with military instead of civilian control.  The populus would know exactly who they’d be up against and who necessary actions would be taken against!!  Where is the GOP on this??  They’ve been ‘rolling-over-and-playing-dead’ on every unconstitutional issue put forth by the “Clown Prince” and passed by the majority in congress.  Such a blatant miscarriage of justice can not and should not stand!!  The republicRATs should keep this and ALL OTHER unconstitutional acts by this administration and the ‘Handler Group’ at the fore; hammering the “Clown Prince” and the other fascists at every opportunity!!  This article {and the accompanying illustration-Black Panther Justice}, written by J. Christian Adams, was published in the on-line edition of The Washington Times, June 26th, 2010]
On the day President Obama was elected, armed men wearing the black berets and jackboots of the New Black Panther Party were stationed at the entrance to a polling place in Philadelphia. They brandished a weapon and intimidated voters and poll watchers. After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party and those armed thugs. I and other Justice attorneys diligently pursued the case and obtained an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before a final judgment could be entered in May 2009, our superiors ordered us to dismiss the case.
    The New Black Panther case was the simplest and most obvious violation of federal law I saw in my Justice Department career. Because of the corrupt nature of the dismissal, statements falsely characterizing the case and, most of all, indefensible orders for the career attorneys not to comply with lawful subpoenas investigating the dismissal, this month I resigned my position as a Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney.
    The federal voter-intimidation statutes we used against the New Black Panthers were enacted because America never realized genuine racial equality in elections. Threats of violence characterized elections from the end of the Civil War until the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965. Before the Voting Rights Act, blacks seeking the right to vote, and those aiding them, were victims of violence and intimidation. But unlike the Southern legal system, Southern violence did not discriminate. Black voters were slain, as were the white champions of their cause. Some of the bodies were tossed into bogs and in one case in Philadelphia, Miss., they were buried together in an earthen dam.
    Based on my firsthand experiences, I believe the dismissal of the Black Panther case was motivated by a lawless hostility toward equal enforcement of the law. Others still within the department share my assessment. The department abetted wrongdoers and abandoned law-abiding citizens victimized by the New Black Panthers. The dismissal raises serious questions about the department’s enforcement neutrality in upcoming midterm elections and the subsequent 2012 presidential election.
    The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has opened an investigation into the dismissal and the DOJ’s skewed enforcement priorities. Attorneys who brought the case are under subpoena to testify, but the department ordered us to ignore the subpoena, lawlessly placing us in an unacceptable legal limbo.  The assistant attorney general for civil rights, Tom Perez, has testified repeatedly that the “facts and law” did not support this case. That claim is false. If the actions in Philadelphia do not constitute voter intimidation, it is hard to imagine what would, short of an actual outbreak of violence at the polls. Let’s all hope this administration has not invited that outcome through the corrupt dismissal.
    Most corrupt of all, the lawyers who ordered the dismissal – Loretta King, the Obama-appointed acting head of the Civil Rights Division, and Steve Rosenbaum – did not even read the internal Justice Department memorandums supporting the case and investigation. Just as Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. admitted that he did not read the Arizona immigration law before he condemned it, Mr. Rosenbaum admitted that he had not bothered to read the most important department documents detailing the investigative facts and applicable law in the New Black Panther case. Christopher Coates, the former Voting Section chief, was so outraged at this dereliction of responsibility that he actually threw the memos at Mr. Rosenbaum in the meeting where they were discussing the dismissal of the case. The department subsequently removed all of Mr. Coates’ responsibilities and sent him to South Carolina.
    Mr. Perez also inaccurately testified to the House Judiciary Committee that federal “Rule 11” required the dismissal of the lawsuit. Lawyers know that Rule 11 is an ethical obligation to bring only meritorious claims, and such a charge by Mr. Perez effectively challenges the ethics and professionalism of the five attorneys who commenced the case. Yet the attorneys who brought the case were voting rights experts and would never pursue a frivolous matter. Their experience in election law far surpassed the experience of the officials who ordered the dismissal.
    Some have called the actions in Philadelphia an isolated incident, not worthy of federal attention. To the contrary, the Black Panthers in October 2008 announced a nationwide deployment for the election. We had indications that polling-place thugs were deployed elsewhere, not only in November 2008, but also during the Democratic primaries, where they targeted white Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters. In any event, the law clearly prohibits even isolated incidents of voter intimidation.
    Most disturbing, the dismissal is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions. Citizens would be shocked to learn about the open and pervasive hostility within the Justice Department to bringing civil rights cases against nonwhite defendants on behalf of white victims. Equal enforcement of justice is not a priority of this administration. Open contempt is voiced for these types of cases.
    Some of my co-workers argued that the law should not be used against black wrongdoers because of the long history of slavery and segregation. Less charitable individuals called it “payback time.” Incredibly, after the case was dismissed, instructions were given that no more cases against racial minorities like the Black Panther case would be brought by the Voting Section.
    Refusing to enforce the law equally means some citizens are protected by the law while others are left to be victimized, depending on their race. Core American principles of equality before the law and freedom from racial discrimination are at risk. Hopefully, equal enforcement of the law is still a point of bipartisan, if not universal, agreement. However, after my experience with the New Black Panther dismissal and the attitudes held by officials in the Civil Rights Division, I am beginning to fear the era of agreement over these core American principles has passed.
