Santorum Deserves A Closer Look

    Like lots’a others, I really didn’t give Rick Santorum even ‘a passing glance,’ politically speaking!  He just never ‘jerked my chain,’ although I liked his message on practically every topic.  So far, the only one I take issue with is his stance on the Second Amendment; he’s voted for various levels of gun control.

    Let’s have a look at Iowa:  Although Mr Santorum lost by ONLY EIGHT VOTES, statistically that’s a dead-heat.  Emotionally, it’s a huge win for Santorum over Mitt Romney!  But…. there IS a benefit to finishing SECOND or worse, in Iowa:

In 1976:  President Gerald Ford won the Iowa republicRATic Caucus but wasn’t re-elected.

In 1976:  Jimmuh Cahtah placed second in the Iowa owe-bamacRATic Caucus and was elected (UGH!!) president.

In 1980:  President Jimmuh Cahtah won the Iowa owe-bamacRATic Caucus but was not re-elected.

In 1980:  “Ronaldus-Magnus” placed second in the Iowa republicRATic Caucus and was elected president.

In 1984:  Walter Mondale won the Iowa owe-bamacRATic Caucus; “Ronaldus-Magnus” was re-elected.

In 1988:  Bob Dole (r) and Dick Gephart (owe) were their party’s Iowa Caucus winners.  Third-place winners George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis were their party’s nominees.  George H.W. Bush was elected president.

In 1992:  Tom Harkin won the Iowa owe-bamacRATic Caucus. “Slick-Willie” was a dismal fourth.  “Slick-WillieClinton was elected (UGH!!) president.

In 1996:  Bob Dole won the Iowa republicRATic Caucus.  “Slick-Willie” was re-elected.

In 2000:  George W. Bush and Algore won their party’s Iowa Caucus. “Dubya” became the fist Iowa winner to be elected president since before 1976.

In 2004:  John Heinz-Kerry won the Iowa owe-bamacRATic Caucus.  “Dubya” went on to re-election.

In 2008:  Mike Huckabee and barack owe-bama won their party’s Iowa Caucus.  The “Clown Prince” was the second Iowa winner (ugh!!) to be elected president since prior to 1976.

So…. Maybe Rick Santorum is in the desired position going into New Hampshire and beyond…. I think so!!

This’n’That; January Fourth #1; Economy

It’s The Economy, STUPID!!

    While the early 1990s economy was on a deliberate, shallow climb from the “Read my lips…..” era of President George H.W. Bush (41), then-candidate “Slick-WillieClinton with Algore, kept beating us over the head with:

“….the worst economy in the last 50 years!” and

“It’s the economy, stupid!”

People–“Slick-Willie‘s” own KoolAid drinkers–bought into the slogans of “Slick‘s” bumper-sticker campaign, his–poll driven–bumper-sticker administration.  The “Slick-and-Algore Show” continued their foray into advanced socialism for eight years.  While “Slick-Willie” continued his dalliances with ‘the hired help;’ screwing everything that walked–including the taxpayer–muslim terrorists were hard-at-work, planning many and various attacks on the United States and it’s overseas assets.

    In the ’90s–during “Slick‘s” two terms–“PayGo” was the largely ignored ‘theme-of-the-day.’  In essence, the plan demanded that new spending legislation be ‘paid-for’ by spending cuts in other areas or the much-beloved tax increases.  The 1990s “PayGo” legislation conveniently expired in 2002 and was never brought up again until 2007.

    George W. Bush beat Algore after ump-teen Florida recounts and became president on January 20, 2001.  Just nine-months later, Al Qaeda brought down the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center!  This and various other security and diplomatic measures caused a 26% rise in deficit spending, to $378.2 BILLION; B-I-L-L-I-O-N!!

    The 2006 mid-term election brought a 1-seat owe-bamacRATic majority in the Senate, a 31-seat majority in the House of Representatives.  After Nancy PORKlosi was elected Speaker of the House, she made the following statements:

(November 8, 2006; On MSNBC-Brian Williams interview:)

“No new deficit spending, no new bridges to nowhere, heaping mountains of debt on our children.”

(December 12, 2006; During a speech after the elections:)

“demo-[owe-bama]-cRATs are committed to ending years of irresponsible budget policies that have produced historic deficits.  Instead of piling trillions of dollars of debt onto our children and grandchildren, we will restore ‘pay-as-you-go’ budget discipline.” 

Senator ‘pinky’ reidincoming Senate Majority Leader–also blathered about:

(November 12, 2006; On CBS News-Bob Scheiffer interview:)

“If you want to have a new program, figure out a way to pay for it without raising taxes.”

Statements of these two legislative miscreants attempted to re-ignite interest in largely ignored legislation forcing the Congress to curtail their “tax-and-spend” budgetary philosophy.  I estimate the re-ignition lasted all of about twenty-minutes!!  Then prevailing ‘ignorance‘ resumed!!

    On January 20,2009–to re-invigorate the “Slick-WillieEra of screwing-the-public–“Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist” was immaculated.  The first day “Clownie” went to play in The Oval Office, the national debt was still just over $10 TRILLION (December, 2008-$10.7 TRILLION)!! An emperor in his own mind, the “Clown” started down the path of “empire equalization.”  Rather than institute fiscal policies that would raise world-wide standards of living, “Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist” went about lowering the American standard of living to the best (or worst) of his abilities!!

    To express his hatred for the United States in general–and his hatred for the accomplished i.e., the rich–“Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist” went about his ‘scorched economy style destruction, simultaneously in two directions.  The PORKlus bill to reward his supporters, contributors and voters came into being in February, 2009-with funds borrowed largely from China.  His attempt at “Cap-and-Trade” legislation–where your utility bills will ‘necessarily sky-rocket‘–was soundly defeated while owe-bamaKare was a minor ‘success (with major consequences!),’ supported by congressional socio-fascists. 

    Since “The Grand Immaculation,” the national debt has been increased by $6 TRILLION in less than three-years!  Yes, that’s right! Over Two-Trillion-Bucks a year, on average!!  Currently–as illustrated by the national debt clock ( –the United States Government OUT-SPENDS it’s income by $1.3 TRILLION each year.  If you and I ran our checkbooks that way, we’d have been in jail for the last ump-teen years!! That’s exactly where the likes of George Soros (an owe-bama handler-by-proxy), most of the Congressional Ruling Class of any party as well as all of the current regime should reside for the next decade, at least.  Now there’s a job creator: building the prisons to house all these miscreants!! 

‘Splain to me again, why YOU elected “Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist?!?”

What-The-Hell’s It All About, Anyway?!?

    I’m fairly sure I know what it’s NOT about.  occupy Wall Street IS NOT comparable to the “Tea Partymovement as the incompetent media; the ‘national pamphleteers,’ would have the public believe!  Objectives of the two ‘organizations’ are (possibly) diametrically opposed to one-another:

The “Tea Partymovement came into being as a direct result of Glenn Beck‘s “We Surround Them;” a series of 2009 specials on Glenn Beck‘s FoxTV program.  An offshoot of the ‘WST‘ series was the “9-12 Project,” not a result of the ‘Tax Day’ protests of the 1990s or the December 16, 2007 celebration of the original ‘Boston Tea Party‘ by Ron Paul supporters-as some contend. There are many who claim leadership of the “Tea Partymovement, most for financial gain rather than the promotion of any stated principles.  The principles and values of the “9-12 Project” as compiled by Mr Beck:


The Nine Principles are:

1.  America is Good.

2.  I believe in God and He is the center of my life;

3.  I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday;

4.  The family is sacred.  My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government;

5.  If you break the law, you pay the penalty.  Justice is blind and no one is above it;

6.  I have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results;

7.  I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to.  Government cannot force me to be charitable;

8.  It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion;

9.  The government works for me.  I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

The twelve values are:  honesty, hope, reverence, thrift, humility, charity, sincerity, moderation, hard work, courage, personal responsibility, gratitude (orig: friendship).


    Thus is the basis for the “Tea Partymovement.  Try as I might, I can find no comparable principles or values for the ‘occupy Wall Street‘ organization.  What I was able to find:  while the ‘occupy Wall Street‘ organization–or dis-organization, depending on whom you believe–claims to be leaderless, the group is supported–and some say, financed–by both the George Soros financial and socio-liberal media empires as well as Richard Trumpka‘s various AFL-CIO unions.


  The ‘spokespeople’ for the “occupy….” group are saying that ‘corporations’ have:


1.  Taken our houses;

2.  Poisoned the food supply;

3.  Hidden and profited from the ‘torture, confinement and cruel treatment of countless animals;

4.  Held students hostage with…. debt on education, which is itself a human right;

5.  Used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press;

6.  Continued to block generic forms of medicines that could save people’s lives;

7.  Participated in the murder and torture of innocent civilians overseas, et al.

While claiming to represent “the 99% of the people against the 1% (that 1%– presumably–being those evil corporations),” the group making these ludicrous assertions, they also demand that:

1.  Employees not only strike, but seize their workplaces, collectively;

2.  Students seize classrooms and free minds together;

3.  [The citizenry] seize and use abandoned buildings, abandoned land…. for the people, for every group that will organize them.

    Without the defined criticisms and goals required of a logical protest, this one surely will not have the lifespan of the “Tea Partymovement.  It can not be a well-reasoned protest–against those evil corporations and capitalism, as an example–to partake of the products and services of those very entities they protest!!  Just a couple of examples:

1.  Each protester invaribly has a cellphone-from an evil corporation-and-capitalist like Apple, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, Cricket, Virgin Mobile, U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS, Tracfone, et al;

2.  Each protester has to “use-the-restroom,” periodically.  Reports have it that they go to a local McDonald’s Restaurant for that service-an entity–an evil corporation and capitalist–that makes a profit; an entity–an evil corporation and capitalist–that pays a wage as low as they can!!

3.  A comment from one ‘Spencer LaFong (10/03/’11)’ on the “occupy….” website:

The Tea Party is financed by the corporate greedheads that are the target of these protesters.  Their “clear message” is lower taxes for their corporate masters, no government services or benefits for the non-wealthy masses, and the mythical “free market” –sorry, no such thing.  They get their “representatives” elected by lying and playing to their ignarant audience and their basest fears.


   It’s been some time since I’ve found someone as out-of-touch-with-reality as Mr LaFong!  As loosely-knit an organization as the “Tea Partymovement is, they have no demand for; no use for ‘financing’ that LaFong alleges.  The “Tea Partymovement supports a return to a smaller federal government, reduced federal spending, a balanced federal budget, adherence to the provisions of the U.S. Constitution, for the benefit of everyone-including these demonstrating miscreants!!


    All these assertions; all these demands, seem to come directly from the ‘playbook’ of the 1960s demonstrators and–most probably–will be just as successful!!  The oWS movement is not the ‘grassroots’ effort the proponents claim it to be with aforementioned backing and funding from both Soros and the various labor, service and teachers’ unions.  For those finding my assertions not believable, when’s the last time 700 “Tea Partiers” were arrested?!?


    The oWS participants have long been indoctrinated into the ways of the dependency class of the American societal structure.  The dependency class–in the modern era–got an early ‘push‘ with the Lyndon JohnsonGreat Society” which sought to placate the negroes in America with many of their number qualifying for existing and new entitlement programs.  Not only did President Johnson extend entitlement programs to millions of those just marginally qualified; it was under his administration that Social Security (FICA) payments to the Treasury went from  a special ‘lock-box,’ to being deposited into the general fund, to be spent–willy-nilly–with the other, general tax receipts.


    More examples of failed socio-fascist entitlement programs clearly indicate that the democRATics; the owe-bamacRATics lead the way in wealth redistribution; this is a newly-found phenomenon by “Clown Prince ZERO-bama, The Narcissist!”  Starting with the FDRalphabet programs,’ and Social Security; continuing on with every democRATically controlled Congress conspiring with their democRATic president.  Way-back-when, Social Security benefits were tax-free; bett’cha didn’t know that!!  In 1983, the 98th Congress (Senate-R majority; House-D majority) voted to initiate the taxation of 50% of Social Security benefits.  We can thank that socio-fascist AlGore (who also claims to have invented the internet–another of his many lies!!) for casting the tie-breaking vote in raising the portion of said benefits subject to taxation to 85%.


    The list of federal entitlement programs just continues to grow–as if on HGH:


529 or Coverdell educational savings plans;

The home mortgage tax deduction;

HOPE or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit;

Student Loans;

Child and dependent care tax credit;

Earned Income Tax Credit;

Social Security-Retirement ‘n’ Survivors;

Pell Grants;

Unemployment Benefits;

Veterans Benefits;

G.I. Bill(s);


Head Start;

Social Security-Disability;

SSI (Supplemental Security Income);


Welfare/Public Assistance;

Government Subsidized Housing;

Food Stamps (EBT Debit Cards).


    With all these cash and in-kind benefits, why would anyone work?!?  Why DOES anyone work?!?  Many–if not most of–the oWS protestors have had each-and-every-one of these wealth re-distribution programs available for them to abuse for an entire lifetime!!  Is it any wonder–after being bombarded with benefits by politicans–they “roll-over-and-play-dead” when it comes to gainful employment?!?  Hell, there’s no reason to work, if ya know how to ‘play the system!!’
