Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Sally Kohn goes on with her lies:

Fact: Though Paul Ryan accused President Obama of taking $716 billion out of Medicare, the fact is that that amount was savings in Medicare reimbursement rates (which, incidentally, save Medicare recipients out-of-pocket costs, too) and Ryan himself embraced these savings in his budget plan.

Now here’s the real kicker. To prove this “fact,” she links to a Polifact article which does not mention Medicare at all!

0bama himself brags about those cuts to Medicare.

Cutting Medicare reimbursement rates is a cut to Medicare.

Another lie attributed to Ryan by Sally Kohn:

While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin, the plant was actually closed under President George W. Bush.

This is what Rep. Ryan actually said:

President Barack Obama came to office during an economic crisis, as he has reminded us a time or two. Those were very tough days, and any fair measure of his record has to take that into account. My home state voted for President Obama. When he talked about change, many people liked the sound of it, especially in Janesville, where we were about to lose a major factory.

A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at that GM plant. Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said: “I believe that if our government is there to support you … this plant will be here for another hundred years.” That’s what he said in 2008.

Well, as it turned out, that plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns today, where the recovery that was promised is nowhere in sight.

He does not blame 0bama for the plant’s closing, and he’s right — the promised recovery is nowhere in sight.

Well, in typical liberal fashion, the liberal lies to call a conservative a liar.

Here’s how it pans out. Sally Kohn of Fox News (proving that Fox really is “Fair and Balanced”) wrote:

While Ryan tried to pin the downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on spending under President Obama, the credit rating was actually downgraded because Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling

Well, to “prove” this “fact,” she links to Polifact. The Polifact article says:

To put it in simple terms, Standard & Poor’s had two main reasons for the downgrade: First, that the size of the U.S. debt is very large and growing, and second, that politicians seem unable to agree on what steps to take to reduce it. It called the political process “contentious and fitful,” and said the firm was “pessimistic” that the White House and Congress would be able to agree on measures to significantly reduce the debt anytime soon.

Well, that’s pretty simple — good reasons for downgrading the credit rating.

But the truth does not suit Polifact, which wants to blame Republicans. So they make up a “fact”:

The report does not say that the debt ceiling should not have been raised. If anything, there’s an unstated assumption that increasing the debt ceiling was necessary.

Yeah. The report did not say “not A,” so A must be true. The reports didn’t say that 0bama was not born in Kenya, either. Thus, the report implies that 0bama was born in Kenya!

It gets worse:

[An] official with Standard & Poor’s, director Joydeep Mukherji, told POLITICO that the stability of American political institutions were undermined by the fact that “people in the political arena were even talking about a potential default.”

The only people talking about potential default were the liberal liars. There was ZERO potential of our going into default on our debt if the debt ceiling were not raised. There was, and still is, more than enough money coming in to service our debts.

Liberals repeatedly accuse conservatives of doing what liberals themselves are doing. Lying to call Paul Ryan a liar is typical of the leftists.

Yeah, I know I’m no Dr. Seuss. My apologies. But I have been seeing more of one party using the other party’s colors this season. Allen and Romney in blue, white and Kaine in red (well, more of a pinky-rose color). I just don’t think that ploy will work this time. You see, there are those ignorant fish voters who refuse to educate themselves and will gobble up all the BS about the other party and why they shouldn’t vote for them. Some things you just can’t change and these voters are the ones that know nothing about what America represents. Shame but true. Then you have the voters that have always done their homework and use daily issues, laws and governance as their barometers to make solid decisions on how to cast their votes. They have always done this and will continue to stay abreast and informed. It is the NEW class that I am impressed with.

Those voters are the ones going through an awakening. They use to close their eyes and listen to words of rainbows and unicorns. When they opened their eyes, their vision was of a scene through rose colored glasses (maybe that is what Kaine is trying to promote with his sign. Anyway…) where all bad was unknown and the good was presented through lies from commentators and party hacks. Fortunately, when the glasses were removed because the vision became blurred, all that was seen was a desert landscape-barren, arid and foreboding. The awakening had commenced and the voters asked how this could be. These people had been duped and were aware again. Signs don’t cut it. Parties don’t cut it. Substance and truth seem to be the prevailors of the day. There is still hope for the Republic and it lies in the lap of these “new” voters. Welcome to reality.

You know how people will say they will get around to doing something and others say it will be in a “blue moon”? I keep track of this but lost my way with my many priorities of late. Today is the day to make good on your promises for it is, yes, a blue moon. Next one won’t be till 2015 so if you want to further delay the nag on that project, just don’t let the kids or spouse read this. Time to get crackin’.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. (Matt. 5:13)

“If you look at the number of illegal immigrants coming into the country, it is net zero. It’s been that way now for almost two years.” -Gov. Jeb Bush

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

“The New Colossus”
Emma Lazarus, 1883

For centuries now, the huddles masses of lesser nations have come here, to the United States, looking for opportunity and freedom that they could not have in the lands of their birth. No more. Not under President Barack Obama. They no longer see America as the Land of Opportunity, as the Land of Freedom.

If we lose our opportunity and our freedom, where will our huddled masses go?

Paul Ryan blew Obama away on his acceptance speech last night. The geek is filled with numbers on economic issues that would create another atmosphere. I am just waiting for him to debate Plugs. My understanding of Romney has changed. I see a dedicated and unassuming individual which is what I like to see in people. He is a savvy individual who knows how to make things work as in capitol enterprise (which is what the government is about but only as a “not-for-profit”) and likes to take charge (like me…….I mean Mama). He does like getting credit for his achievements (who doesn’t) but never overlooks those others that contribute. Isn’t that what brain-storming (a word not found in the liberal dictionary) is all about?

You are going to hear things like Romney is corporate America and doesn’t know how to run a government (like Obama does), he is rich (so are lottery winners), he doesn’t pay his “fair share” of taxes like GM and others, he hates women (talking ignorant statements about women is taboo–they are intelligent enough to figure things out on their own), Paul Ryan is too young (bless his heart for being that smart at that age), on so on. You know all the diversion talking points. So when the talk of politics is broached, start your side of the conversation with “Obama is destroying America and needs to go”. This should elicit a response on the candidates above that has NOTHING to do with the problems we face. Then you drop the bomb with this line, verbatium: “It’s about the economy STUPID!”. You didn’t make a friend with this line and it will either promote further discussion, that you must keep focused on the economy, an abrupt end to discussion or possibly an invite to physical confrontation which you must address at the time by the “froggy” meter. DO NOT back down from these people. This is an in-your-face concept and we must stand our ground. Blowhards usually retreat at this point because their tactics only work on the weak and uninformed. Be informed, stand tall and show them you mean business when it comes to the health and principles of the United States of America. Every bully needs a come-upence!
