Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

I hired on with a company for retirement benefits, as was explained to be the thing to do by the older generation. Health benefits were included in the retirement which is why my pay wasn’t all that great. It was a package deal for now and the future. No COLA, no raises….just a predetermined rate. Here is the math:

A=my gross pay minus B which are current rate of taxation with medical contributions (computes to 29%) = C my net pay of 71% of gross. D is my retirement gross minus E which are current taxes and medical contributions (still at 29%) = F my net retirement income (which is but 1/4 of what C was). E now has a deduction for medical (E.1) which computes to 8.5% of the total of E. I just enrolled for the new calender year for medical and E has changed to 40% where E.1 is now 33% of E. F, my net income is now 1/5 of C.

What I am trying to show is that my medical went up 2,000%!! That is TWO THOUSAND PERCENT! My net income is now below government poverty standards. The kicker in this deal is that a caveat states subject to change as MORE of ObamaCare gets enacted….not WHEN. So when the sheep, freeloading sons-of-bitches tell you that ObamaCare is good, helps the poor and gives FREE birth control and abortions, you tell them this Reb is now poor, wants birth control for all those ignorant liberal lovers so they can’t breed further stupidity and only hope that the abortion part is also for POST birth because there are many of them I would love to abort right now. This ain’t funny but rather sickening and sad with my (and others) situation. It never had to come to this but for liberals. I erased the rest because it wasn’t christian which I don’t feel much like right now. Obama and his cronies need to become extinct!

Warning: Graphical language laced with utter stupidity.

The Obama and his supporters have gone full retard with this one.

Defn:To act 100% retarded with extra no redeeming special quality.

Ex: Downey, “Everybody knows you never do a full retard.”

In comparison the children singing campaign ad is artwork. How low is the Obama campaign and its fellow travelers going to go? Obama started with Hope, Change, saving the planet from rising oceans. It was silly, but it was designed to inspire. Obama is now ending with an assault on his opponent genitalia? We have achieved junior high gross with this ad. Is this campaign for real?

The Democrats have tried a campaign of softball interviews on Letterman, Leno and the View in order to keep the Messiah’s cluelessness from being put on display. Since that strategy collapsed utterly in the first debate, they are trotting this out as Plan B? Who is the brain trust in Chicago that thinks this is going to help them?

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, we see a good example of the reason we have a United States government:

[To] provide for the… and general Welfare of the… States

Yes, I intentionally cut the word United from United States. It is, after all, just an adjective. By removing that adjective, I wish to direct your attention to the States as individual entities, not the United States as a single entity. As Benjamin Zimmerman of the University of Pennsylvania pointed out, the United States was originally considered a plural noun, not a singular noun.

The primary Power given to Congress was to Defend the States, and to provide for their General Welfare. That is where FEMA comes in. FEMA is an example of what our national government should be. It is simple not economical for each individual State to prepare for all possible contingencies — floods, earthquakes, blizzards, etc. Furthermore, the preparations of an individual State are likely to be rendered inoperative by the very emergency they are designed to alleviate. If a FEMA center is destroyed, operations can be directed from a center outside the afflicted area.

This is not “big government,” this is right government. Our national government is a creation of the States, and was intended for the Welfare of the States. If you want your government to provide for your personal welfare, then look to your State and local governments, not to the national government.

1. It is a pagan holiday (and not the motorcycle group)
2. It is an expensive charity without a line item deduction on the 1040 form
3. It causes obesity in children which could make you the defendant in a lawsuit
4. Unimaginative teenagers with bad/no costumes
5. Destructive menace in the yards
6. Irresponsible rug-rats run amuck
7. Irresponsible adults using street/sidewalks as social gathering points
8. Invisible potential road kill
9. Disruptive nuisance of the household quiet time
10. Wasted bounty because of paranoid parents
11. Makes neighborhood watchers go crazy
12. If I wanted to see your whiny kids, I’d go to YOUR house
13. Ungratefulness from the little free loaders
14. Leftover snot drippings on the front porch pose a bio hazard to residents–clean up is costly time

I would rather the kids come by and rake my yard and give back to the community instead of take-take-take. Where’s my paintball gun?

Companies and corporations are whores. They pander to the prevailing wind when it comes to helping their bottom line. Some are true in American values and patriotism and some are just plain greedy for their own right. My old company played both sides to curry favor on the Hill from whomever was the dominate party (covering all your bases). The companies that donate strictly party have their reasons and their rights and I am all for it. But if I recall, those monies that are contributed come from the sales of the consumer……you and me. Some times I care and some times I don’t. This election I care with all that is at stake and I let people (businesses) live and die by their beliefs. I don’t buy Levi products because of their stance on homosexual rights and their stance against Boy Scouts. Done deal. Forever. I’m stubborn.

Re-Electing President Obama Is A Momentous Decision That Will Require Every Single Voter. What Would The Children Of The Future Say If We Let Them Down This November?

This ode to Orwell’s Oceana will back fire. Stripmines Fun and Free? Sick people just die? Oil fills the sea? My first response to the string of over-the-top Democrat talking points sung by the mindless cherubs was, “Forget you.” First off, no Republican is considering filling the sea with oil you hapless drones. Sick people dying is what happens under socialist a.k.a. government-controlled healthcare, and no one is proposing strip mining, or mining of any sort that is unregulated. They sing about endless war, which is a term right out Orwell’s novel. The interesting thing is Obama was the president who violated the War Powers Act, not Booosh.

What is truly sad is that it is the Obama-Democrat policies that will have us accused by children and grand children who will ask, “What were you thinking?” They might also ask “Why am I in debt to the tune of $100K because you could not say ‘enough’!?” Or, “You voted for someone because you felt guilty?” Or, “What was so wrong about questioning the Dear Leader?”

Obama is an Alinski-ite. This ad is right out of the playbook: Trash your opponents, make them react, fault them for their reaction. The trouble is that both sides have learned the playbook. The result will be action not reaction.

This commercial is so unjust, so enraging, the effect will be to motivate those who would otherwise only vote for Romney. People will now go out and knock on doors, stuff envelops, drive people to the polling stations for the Republicans. This should motivate one and all to put up Romney-Ryan signs. People won’t just vote for Romney, they will be writing checks, and working for the Romney campaign — in response to this campaign ad.

With this ad Team Obama has announced they are giving up on the undecideds and independents. They are now hoping for a turn out election. They are looking to motivate their demoralized base. This ad is the opposite of hope and change, it is the embodiment of a scorched earth policy. Playing this ad in a presidential year is a huge mistake; this is an off cycle year campaign ad. The Democrats are demonstrating utter desperation with these singing props.

Lastly, at the rate we are going it is not just Chinese stuff in our stores, it is Chinese ownership of our country’s debt. They already own $1.1T in US treasury bills. Foreign ownership of American dept has exploded under Obama. Some speculate that Obama is looking to take the U.S. down a peg. By now we should be able to peg Obama as a hollow, left-wing, ideological zealot. A community organizer is just another term for rabble-rouser. This empty suite has never worked for a private concern let alone made pay roll. Obama is a product of the Chicago Political Machine. He does not get economics, nor does he understand the lawlessness of his administration. Obama just does not get it, and he never will.

An interesting article in the WSJ talks about the church pulpit pushing early voting in many parts of Florida, where Romney seems to be in the lead and both sides insist that Romney must win Florida to win the election. Conservative churches are pushing people to vote their values while many Negro churches are busing voters to the early polls. The Negro churches feel that the new law that shortened early voting is unfair and that voting now (pushing their congregations) only helps Obama. Why would they want to do that when Obama and liberals suppress the poor and Negro in every shape and form?

Both liberals and conservative churches are handing out information at their churches and pushing for the “values” vote. Yet what seems to conflict some Negro congregations are the assaults on religion and Obama’s pro view for same sex marriage. This statement seems to sum up things pretty handily:

“Without warning [Mr. Obama] assaulted our faith by contradicting the word of God and redefining the concept of family” said the Rev. Anthony Evans, president of the National Black Church Initiative. Mr Evans said he was “praying” about whether to vote for the president.

God doesn’t worry about man’s law, only God’s law. If you state that Obama assaults your religion and that you vote “values” then what is there to pray about? This is the key question you need to understand and you don’t think the quandary has anything to do with race? I think there needs to be some soul searching within the church and its pastors.
