Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

This is pretty unfair of me. It is so-o-o-o hard to type when you are trying to curtail the laughter (or sadness, shock, awe, whatever). Adding to the “I couldn’t make this stuff up” column of this administration and the inept people installed in positions of power, importance, in view of the public, I present you with this. I suppose that Obama really, really, REALLY, didn’t want us to find out about what his strategy was. Can’t say that I blame him. How do we afford to influence thru governance (read: MONEY) or create jobs (read: MONEY) in these jihadi countries when we can’t make ends meet here at home? I do have one idea. How about a government mandated gun buy-back program from these terrorists? If we don’t want to kill them, let’s buy their AK-47s so that they can get some cool gear from Best Buy. I’m hoping Jack won’t take issue with this type buy-back.

I see that the Senate has now approved the Keystone XL pipeline. Not by a veto majority though. This after all these Democrats wanted it passed, so that they could save their jobs and show that Obama was wrong. Where are the Dems on this one? How about the EPA giving Obama the ammunition needed to veto with clean conscience? Only one R senator did not vote. Many D’s stepped up to the plate.

Congress is once again voting on eliminating Obamacare. I guess this is to get the new members of Congress on rolls. Why bother if you can’t get a veto proof majority? Why bother if the GOP won’t withhold monies for many aspects of it? Why won’t they pass bills with a veto proof majority the Dems have said they are willing to come on board for?

Why is the Congress going to go to a CR for Homeland Security when they have left funding out for the criminal aliens Obama is giving grace to? Shut the whole department down if the budget for it is vetoed by Obama. Putting the Guard or military on the border would be cheaper. And stop giving retroactive pay for shutdowns. No work, no pay. Period. Government work should be no less an iffy proposition than in the private sector.

About the IRS? Already complaining about being underfunded and how it is going to affect returns, questions from the public, etc. Dismantle the behemoth and go to a flat tax. I mean, hasn’t every candidate, sitting congress critter, and his brother promised to REFORM the IRS? What are we waiting for? It should be a veto proof bill, right?

This Congress was so strengthened by the voters to be more Republican than the last election because Dems and liberals aren’t steering us to prosperity. Hell, look at the new 3.999 TRILLION dollar budget Obama proposes. That should make it obvious enough that this administration doesn’t care about the American people. The same tired and used up initiatives from the Dems and liberals make it obvious that THEY, also, do not care about the American people. Now it is beginning to look like the GOP doesn’t really care about the American people. If they did then they would be putting stuff out on a daily basis that would pass Congress and get installed. They would also stay adamant about all the rhetoric that they have spewed. Enough of this empty BS. We keep putting these people in Congress on their promises. Maybe it needs to be a referendum by the people that there are severe consequences when failing to follow through on those promises. Jail time is nice. Hanging would be better. I mean, what is this “people’s” Congress doing for us anyway?

Who knew, right? I haven’t stopped laughing since I watched this in awe yesterday. It was that “deer in the headlights” look where you just can’t believe what you just heard. Matter of fact, when you watch this lie that Schultz puts forth to the people, you will see that exact look. But don’t worry none because Josh Earnest came to the rescue and “clarified” what the WH was trying to say.

The above example is as basic as it gets. It is the same as drawing a picture with crayons to make someone understand what you are trying to convey. What is trying to be conveyed by this administration is this: The American people are stupid and will believe anything we say. I can’t make this stuff up. Not this good, anyway.

This all had to do with Bowe Bergdahl, whose favorite song is this:
Come Mister Tally-Bahn, tally me bonanas,
Daylight come and me want to go home.

So all of a sudden, the great and mighty Harry Reid cowers after a devastating mid-term election, still being Senate Majority Leader, and cuts loose with a vote on the Keystone Pipeline. Why? Hasn’t done it for 5 years and said it wouldn’t come up for a vote……until now. Oh, right, Landrieu got it pushed in the Senate because she is so well liked and influential. Ok, but it needs 60 votes to go before the president, Mary; not 59. Of those 59, all 45 Republicans and 14 Democrat Senators pushed for it. Neither of the Independent Democrats voted pro, as usual. So we didn’t get to see if Obama would veto it and Mary doesn’t have the influence she portends. I saw it as a waste of time until the new congress comes in but it is worthy to note what will ensue.

Landrieu ain’t going to make it in the run-off election, and if this WAS NOT the reason for pushing forward this vote, it will be interesting how the next vote will transpire. You see, the GOP will go from 45 votes to 53 votes in the new congress. If those same 14 Democrats vote on the new passage (and why wouldn’t they since they just demonstrated that this issue needs to move forward and quickly), then Congress will have the 60 votes necessary to move it to Obama’s desk for passage or veto. Now here is where the rubber meets the road. Was this current vote a ruse to dupe American citizens of the Senates’ intent to actually save a Democrat seat rather than cheaper oil and good jobs for Americans? If not, Obama will be facing a 67 pro vote veto. That would be called a two-thirds majority and an override. Would he be so brash, arrogant and stupid to actually veto the bill? Oh, brother. I relish the new year. So many great and revealing circumstances coming to bare.

So all this time that the “informed” have been telling you that Obamacare is a scam, no one wants to listen. The Senate and House said the bill needed to be passed in order to find out what is in it……like it is a present waiting to be opened. So now, one of the chief architects decides to shoot of his mouth and rub it in your stupid faces; very bluntly, I might add. Remember, this is the superior Democrat party that knows what is best for everyone. Why? Because they feel the American people are too stupid to know what is best for them. In a sense, this statement is partially true. Those stupid voters that continue to believe the lies and vote Dem prove it every election. But what this video proves to me is that those individuals that voted for this bill in Congress are even more stupid than the American populace being besmirched here. They had a closed door meeting or two and we’re told that it was a way to get the poor health insurance and would also put these politicians in high regard with the people. Yup, the last couple elections proved that one. So we know that those who passed Obamacare in Congress lied, Emmanual lied. Gruber lied. The chief liar Obama did what he does best—he lied also. Good case for repeal. Better case for forcing vacancies in political positions. Best case to put members of the Congress and the administration, as well private contributors to this bill, in residence at the grey bar hotel. How much more do we need to eliminate this bad law?

I must admit that I have been waiting for one of Gaius’s thoughtful posts to liven things up but I understand the rigors of the daily grind and children, so I’ll give you a rounding of what is happening in the news.
LoCo wants to close 4 schools they own outright, which will save 2 million a year in operating costs. Meanwhile, 68+million will go to LCPS for fiscal year 2015. The tax rate went down .05 cents and my assessment went up 100k. That means it will only cost me another $1,000 in taxes. What a deal. And they have cut back many services in savings already. Hmm. Where is that Silver Line?

We have a guy feeding cows on federal land who won’t pay the Feds grazing rights. It got heated and civilians are toe-to-toe with armed Feds. Was getting ugly and not over yet. Meantime Putin is land grabbing more of the old USSR while everyone else in the world wags fingers. Ever notice that when big wars bring down aggressors, that nations go into downsizing mode with their military. The focus changes and the eye goes off the ball. During that period of non-focus, aggressors re-emerge upon the scene. Isn’t what keeps them in check are strong military nations at the ready?
Gas is up right when I am getting ready to go fishing. Why are we spending $2 for crop and processing to make $1 of ethanol, just so we can continue to ruin the internal combustion engines that use it? And food is going up. We feed ourselves and others with wheat and corn staple, yet there isn’t enough because of what is wasted as “alternate fuel”. If we took the same amount of corn and distilled it, we could save money, have less vehicles on the road and feel good about being anally raped. I guess being drunk has advantages and savings too. But, heh, ALL food is up. Steak is up (because they feed them corn I guess). I see new taxes on all my utility bills. What’s up with that? What is more important:desert turtles (who don’t like solar farms) or smelts that are nothing more than Egret food? Ever notice where many of the supermarket meats come from lately? Do you really like brushing your teeth with toothpaste that comes from the same country of massive pollution and lead paint toys that cause suicide in supervisors?
And we don’t need another 4 years of a woman president. It has been too long since we had balls in the White House. And we need more testicles in Congress too. A poster here thinks we need to build locally politically and move up. I agree, but I also agree that with a good role model at the top working down that you meet in the middle and get there twice as fast.
Out of all this news (or lack there of), that situation in Nevada with the cows has got my focus. The guy is wrong in his understanding of things. Should it have gotten out of hand? Yes, because the government is involved and that has rallied the people. The underlying theme here is freedom from government and in this case it doesn’t matter if the issue is right or wrong. It is a cause for the people and it will escalate. Could be the beginning of the people’s revolution. Someone is going to die and then all bets are off. Citizens have reached their breaking point and need a circumstance. I’ll be fishing and watching. If need be I might need to extend my vacation and visit the southwest although I’m pretty sure the uprising will come to a neighborhood near me in time. Until then I’ll be starving, going broke with taxes and healthcare. If you feel for my plight and to keep me off the government dole, you may send contributions to me here at NVTH. I promise that any excess funds will be used to buy more worthwhile things…….like bullets.

While listening to the radio the other day, this Phil from Duck Dynasty seemed to be the news buzz. Some Brian and Larry program was talking to callers and one caller said if the tables were turned, no commotion would be made. At this point, Larry the bozo says: “gays are normal people; just different”. I was infuriated over such a stupid statement but it did give me pause. Just what is normal and who determines it?

I thought about how I grew up and what was normal in my sphere, as well the rest of society. Normal was giving respect to elders with ma’am and sir and calling elders by their last name–not their first. Normal was opening doors for others or thanking those that did it for you. Normal was helping a neighbor or stranger whenever asked or you saw assistance was needed. Normal was trusting the cop on the beat or wanting to be one when you grew up. Same with the fireman. Normal was having a job and being responsible, where it wasn’t beneath you to be a milkman or work in a factory. Normal was going hunting after school or fishing to help put supper on the table, even if you had to take your gun to school. Normal was Christmas with all it’s splendor and all buildings had displays, including local government buildings. Many of you will say racial discrimination was also normal. In some areas of the country it was and that normal exists to before we became a country. There are many more normals of my time but it has changed over the years.

I remember when movies were 15 cents and you could buy most candy for a penny. That is what I grew up in. So I thought about where I am today. Normal seems to be about self now instead of others…..except where the government is concerned. They think about what they can do for others with an unlimited supply of money from everyone else. The new normal is lack of responsibility for one’s self. The new normal is being loud, unruly and disrespectful. The new normal cuts people off–anywhere, doing anything because self is number one. New normal is talking on the phone ANYWHERE, while disturbing the people around you. New normal are children calling elders by their first name, with possible trailing names added on. New normal is trespass and destruction of property not your own. New normal is blocking aisle ways, walkways and entrances with total disregard to others. New normal is being your brothers’ keeper, with a billion brothers and more. New normal is scams, lies and mistrust.

So when I hear that homosexuals are “normal people, just different”, I have to understand things differently now. Child molesters are normal, just different. Abortionists are normal, just different. Kidnappers are normal, just different. Kids that play the Knock-out game are normal, just different. Catching on yet? Basically ALL people are normal, just different. Except for Christians. They aren’t normal at all–just different. We’ve come a long way. Unfortunately, when you are sliding down a steep slope, it doesn’t take much to slip to the bottom. Normal, just different, indeed!
