So I am selfish. So what.

According to Barack Obama I should feel guilty and sad. that I should walk around with my head down and shuffle my feet in a state of depression. Racking my brain trying to self examine my attitude and figure out how I can make my dollar stretch past my family in order to take care of someone elses family and their families family.

I guess the burden of trying to pay my bills. Figuring out how to pay for my collage and children's collage, or even my medical bills is not enough for Obama. He wants me to worry about my neighbors cousin who has a friend living down the block, who knows this guy who has a sister that does not have cable television. She also needs money for her car payment , her mortgage, the bass boat her boyfriend uses on the weekends, and money so she can take a vacation this next summer.

I just do not have my priorities in line do I? Gosh what a mean person I am. I just don't care about my fellow human being and what they want versus my responsibilities and my family.

I see here as Gov. Richardson form New Mexico has revalued the rich versus middle class economic line down from Obama's $200,000 to $120,000. I wonder when it will drop down to the $42,000 line Barack has mentioned in the primaries as an income that needs its taxes raised as well.

"The reason that we want to do this, change our tax code, is not because I have anything against the rich, I love rich people! I want all of you to be rich. Go for it. That’s the American dream, that’s the American way, that’s terrific." Obama said in Sarasota, Fla., yesterday.

"The point is, though, that -- and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class -- it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses are selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore. And that’s what I’m gonna do as

president of the United States of America."

"John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic," Obama continued. "You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness."


Obama thinks one should take care of someone else before they can take care of them selves it would seem. this is selfish in my book. Sure it is a very compelling argument that everyone should have health care, a collage education, and money in their pocket. yet how will everyone have these things when some have to reach further into their pockets to pay for this while others kick back and enjoy while not contributing to the community? Now is not that a selfish act? Taking and not giving.

The false dot com boom of the 1990's is nothing to brag about or to imitate and strive to repeat. After all the market did crash at the end of Clinton's Presidency. Bush 43 inherited from Clinton, a recession in every sense of the word. Two quarters of no growth ion the economy. Something we have not had since.
Check Spelling
I would love to be able to afford a new car instead of a used one that is only new to me an my family. Sure I would love to be able to afford a larger house. But you know what. I am willing to be responsibly in my fiscal decisions and save and wait for the opportunity when I can afford the payments. payments that I can make from the money I earned and not some one elses hard earned money.

then again I guess it is selfish to think that I should save and try to be responsible.Then again under Obama's plan I won't be able to save. The old feeling of satisfaction from doing it yourself, and sense of achievement is wrong. So with that in mind I guess I like being selfish.

I like the fact that a job well done means a little blood sweat and tears from me was put into it. that the fact I did it and no one else did (pride) the job makes me feel good. That I earned this or that, was able to provide and achieve on my own.

Stimulas 2, another money grab

This is amazing isn't it? The leftist Democrats are screaming that the national debt is to high. So what do they propose? Another large spending and increase in the national debt. Let's spend more money we do not have, and lets spend it on things that are not a priority.

We see how the government has bailed out Wall St. and the banks. Blank checks with no stipulations. Literally money for nothing. Now the government in its mismanagement cry foul. That the money is not being spent like it was meant to be spent. Well DUUUUUUUAAAAHHHH! You hand out money with no strings and people including businesses are going to pocket it, or use it to pay bills. This is what the banks and companies are doing. No one said to them that they have to loan it out.

So what do the Dimocorupts want to do now. They want to take another large chunk of money they do not have. Then get this, invest it in State and Local governments to increase jobs. LMAO!!!!!!!!

Talk about no strings and lack of supervision on this money. When was the last time a State or Local government was responsible in spending money. Needless to point out the facts that their contract negotiation, and job priorities are not just fundamentally corrupt but lack common sense.

As the tax payer is very well aware of pet projects are on the top of the spending and improvement list for these governments. Very few if any actually go to benefit the citizens.

So why is there a push now for more spending? It is simple. More feel good legislation lacking common sense. If it makes you feel good then it must be good, right? WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!

How many millions will they waste before their scam has run its coarse? How long will we the voter allow this to happen? Is it not time for responsible government and accountability to the constituents?

Well this is what you get when socialist run the show.

Will it be over soon?

Will it be over soon? We have seen campaigning for two years now in this election cycle. It is old and tiresome. So will it be over after November 4Th, or will it begin immediately for the 2012 election cycle?

Or depending on the outcome will there be a 2012 election cycle?


Secrete ballot, Obama, and the Unions of Socialism

Why is there such a push across this nation to get unions into the work place? There once was a time when unions were needed and praised for their work on improving work conditions and pay. However today where is this looking out for the worker and their welfare? It is non existent.

Unions and Socialism walk today hand in hand. A union commands membership and dues from its members. For this the members are to receive representation, and bargain leverage in negotiations. however the "Card Check" issue allows the union to see how members and non members vote on union issues. In other words if you do not support the unions position the union will know who you are.

Is this right? Is this fair? Should an organization, be it a political party or a union, or even your neighbors be allowed to know how you vote. It is your right to keep your opinion quiet or to express it out loud with out the fear of retaliation by those who do not agree. It is freedom of speech. With this freedom does come the RESPONSIBILITY of what one says and thinks.

So should unions be allowed to stand over ones shoulder and look at your ballot and see what box you are checking? This is what Sen. Obama would like to see happen. He favors the "Card Check" policy and bill. he wants to know where you stand and how you think. This is socialism and oppression with intimidation of the worst kind. Look at the vote this year. It is intimidation nation wide with nothing less then voter fraud.

Where have we seen this happen? No need to look across the seas. Just look south. Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba. An oppression of the vote and intimidation of the voter to coerce an outcome that supports socialistic agendas and oppression of the people.

Unions in America may do a little representation for their members but in reality when was the last time that they were truly needed? It has been over 40 years since that. Now I am not saying eliminate unions, they are a counter balance to help oversee worker abuse. However we have created several government entities that look out for the safety, income, and overall welfare of the workers.

I defy any one to give me an example of a company that can stand up and continue to abuse and cheat workers when the IRS, EPA, and OSHA step in and look at a company. You can't because when these agencies move in someone is in trouble.

The peoples party is also described as the workers union. A socialist term for controlled thinking and actions of the masses. When one opens up, or correctly put, closes the work place to right to work workers. It mandates a way of thinking and acting. It robs paychecks in order to fiance thuggery and intimidation methods.

Be clear on this. The "Card Check" issue is another move to eliminate our rights and undermine our freedoms. Not to mention open up our wallets wider.

Elizabeth Edwards thinks we are stupid

Elizabeth Edwards, wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and currently a health care advisor to Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign. Thinks that we the voter and average American is too stupid to decide on our health care. That by prioritiseing our needs and values we make “make stupid economics decisions” , when it comes to a health care plan.

Currently a health care advisor to Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign. She is not 100% behind the Democratic nominee’s health care plan. “We're on the verge of an Obama Presidency," said Edwards at George Washington University Monday night, and “I’m not that fond of his plan.” Stating that Sen. Obama, and Sen. McCain , view health care as a commodity, rather than a human right.

She criticises Sen. John McCain's plan. Concluding it fails in all important areas by leaving the decision-making process up to individuals, who can frequently “make stupid economics decisions.”

Well despite her intellect I have news for her. Health care is not a human right. It is a responsibility to ones self and family. To stay healthy for them and make sure that they stay healthy. There is no right to this. None what so ever. Yet the liberal progressive thinking would dictate otherwise. Forcing what they believe and want on others. A fascist state and belief of ideas.

No where in history has there been an edict that states health care is a right of man. Sure there have been COMMON COURTESIES extended to travelers and to those who may stumble to ones door. But there is nothing that has concluded that there is a right to health care.

The fact she thinks that as a responsible adult. We cannot prioritise the necessity of health care and would always choose wrongly as she suggests is wrong. She would dictate to us what our needs are, and our beliefs when it comes to how we take care of ourselves.

Who is she to determine what we need and want? Some one may want cosmetic surgery included in their plan while others not. Will she force it on you or make it unavailable. What about abortion? Is she going to say you will get one or that you are not allowed to get one? What about immunizations? Which ones will she determine are what we require and what ones we can get if we would like?

This is what people are supporting and voting for in a democratic party. We are soooo screwed!

Hatred hiding behind 1st Amendment

It never ceases to amaze me at how the left abuses the 1st amendment. They laugh and joke with their abuse. Then if someone on the right steps into a grey area they scream and cry with all their might about how the 1st amendment does not protect this form of speech.

What am I referring to this time? A Halloween prop in California.

Halloween Palin Prop Sparks Controversy In WeHoWEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) ― A Halloween decoration showing a mannequin dressed as vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hanging by a noose from the roof of a West Hollywood home is drawing giggles from some passers-by and gasps of outrage from others.

The mannequin is dressed in brunet wig, glasses and a red business suit. Another mannequin dressed as John McCain emerges from a flaming chimney. Chad Michael Morisette, who lives in the house, told CBS 2 News that drivers and bus passengers have been stopping to snap pictures of the macabre scene.

Morisette says the effigy would be out of bounds at any other time of year, but it's within the spirit of Halloween. He says "it should be seen as art, and as within the month of October. It's Halloween, it's time to be scary it's time to be spooky."

Now just suppose that an effigy of Barack Obama was to be hung by a rope about its neck as a Halloween prop. This would be an international incident. A cry of racism and bigotry would be on the front of every news paper in North America demanding action.

The left is so biased it knows no bounds or limitations in the liberties it now enjoys. How disgusting they are!


Obama, Vladimir Lenin, and the Left

What do these three have in common, Barack Obama, Vladimir Lenin, and Americas left?

"Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."
Vladimir Lenin

"Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon of our party." Joseph Stalin

So far we have given Americas left at least 20 years in our school system. The dumbing down of our society with the social engineering of education instead of concentrating on learning. More and more wasted spending on the educational system with absolutely no return in learning. Then now in the State of Wisconsin. A school system has devoted 12 to 15 pages promoting Obama and glossing over his social community "activism".

A ploy of subversion from Trotsky was to reeducate the populace. Lenin did this well, and it is continued on today through Putin. Look at our system and how it stands. Look at what is being rewritten and taught to the youth. America is bad and Europe is good. Misconception, deceit and lies.

"The best way to destroy the capitalist system is to debauch the currency." Vladimir Lenin

"Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed. "Joseph Stalin

Just a coincidence that our economy is at a juncture of bad news. Any one else remember how Georgy Soros sank the Oriental markets when they upset him. A huge LEFTIST and anti AMERICAN is Soros. One only needs to look into his investments and their decline just before the American market started to have trouble to wonder if his pulling out had any thing to do in aiding the mess we are in.

Barack's theory of economics trickle up idea is not only bad. It smacks of, or in his own words, "spreading the wealth" a concept of redistribution of monies. A socialist concept.

"One man with a gun can control 100 without one. "Vladimir Lenin

"We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?" Joseph Stalin

If you have any doubt about where Obama stands on gun control. Just look into Obama's support for the United Nations measures of world wide banning of handguns. A direct assault upon our SECOND AMENDMENT. Obama's record in the Illinois Senate shows how he would have those who protect themselves from criminals punished if they use a handgun in self defense.

This attitude along with the anti gun crowd in America are doing all they can to disarm the American populace.

"The people who cast the votes don't decide an election, the people who count the votes do." Joseph Stalin

"There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel." Vladimir Lenin

We are also aware of the ACORN connection to Obama and his campaign. The problem is that there is no investigation with teeth in it. When will America wake up to the fact that ELECTION FRAUD is being committed by the Democrats.

"The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses. "Vladimir Lenin

"The writer may very well serve a movement of history as its mouthpiece, but he cannot of course create it." Karl Marx " The writer must earn money in order to be able to live and to write, but he must by no means live and write for the purpose of making money."

With the aid of the MSM Obama's campaign has not had to answer for any gaffes or for any of his suggested policies. A lack of investigation into his background, and into his associates leaves many unanswered questions as to who Obama really is.

The absolute spin and deflection of what Obama really says and what his pundits interpret afterwards for the rest of us. A propaganda campaign of misconception, and lies.

Does anyone else see a connection here. The thought process of those on the left and Obama. How very similar they are in action and spirit. Just a little for you the reader to think about.


A Nightmare Vision

Its the eve of the first Tuesday in November of the year 2010. America has changed a lot in the last two years. As we head to vote the selection is limited as the Democratic party once was is now the American New Direction Progressive party (socialist for short). Seems to be running unopposed in all elections as the new laws passed prevent other parties from getting their platform out.

There is no more talk radio, or FOX news. The fairness in broadcasting act has censored all opposing views. Hate speech laws have forced an increase in incarceration of those who once fought for the Bill of Rights. Many ex military found themselves coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan only to be arrested and tried for manufactured war crimes. Those who were vocal are now at Pelican Bay or in Leavenworth.

Work riots are a common news topic, almost to the order of boring. Unemployment has reached a world record high that even third world nations have never known. Running at 47%, with inflation at an all time high of 38%. Not since pre WWII Germany has a country suffered like this.

The differences that if you live out west the Brown Shirts have been replaced with Brown Berets. California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, parts of Oklahoma and Texas are now part of the Coalition for Aztlan in North America. Texas faces an uphill battle as Taejon's and Texans alike have gown to ground and running a gorilla campaign. Only to be hunted by not only United States Military but United Nations Arab League troops.

The Ronald Regan Ranch is now the home of CAIR in Aztlan. Once a shinning beacon of light it sits dark and disparaging. A green flag with crossed Mameluke swords in front of a palm tree flies. They said the land was bought from the once State of California, yet the underground was able to leak pictures on to the Internet before it was shut down of Nancy Regan being dragged outside and stuffed into a military truck. They claimed she died of a heart attack yet no hospital ever admitted her.

The biggest surprise has been when Nancy Pelosi was arrested, tried and executed for high treason. She was replaced by Cynthia McKinney as speaker of the House. Washington is in lock down as United Nation peace keepers patrol the streets. A long blast of prayer bells sounds five times a day over Washington. Announcing the National Religion of America. Islam has sprung up over night.

Women no longer purchase makeup and Mabeline, Max Factor, Mary Kay, are all out of business. Factories sit empty as the taxes are just too high to conduct business anymore. In 2009 a flood of corporations moved overseas. The economies of the Far East are flourishing and China rules with an iron grip.

The Monroe Doctrine was ignored or forgotten about as Hugo Chavez, president for life. Had Venezuelan and Cuban troops over trow the governments of Columbia and Brazil. Argentina gave up with out a fight. Russian military bases now litter the Peruvian Alps. While being made permanent.

I wonder here on the eve of the 2010 election should I bother to vote or not?

Ask the Question, get labeled

We have seen this for the last two years of this present Presidential campaign. Soft ball after softball questions for the Democratic candidates. A refusal to answer any question of substance or intelligence. Ask the relevant question on a statement or position and the left gets their knickers in a twist. Labeling and spin results in the actual statement.

Is this what we have to look forward to? Censorship of one party and what they say. A denial with the aid of lawyers and media on the truth. It would appear so.

In a time of nothing more then feel good ideas, redistribution of wealth and platitudes from the left. Too many are falling for the spin and cover up of the true agenda. An agenda that leads to only indentured servitude to the state. Where politicians of one side silence opposition and the freedoms of the people.

An end run on the SOVEREIGNTY and CONSTITUTION of this great nation is under way. In the most insidious manner possible. FROM WITHIN, with the aid of the system. Liberal judges who legislate and fail to interpret the law as is required of them. Lawyers who line up to sue for the love of money from their rich leftist employers, not caring that they are tearing down the legal system that is one day supposed to protect them. The youth, who from years of social engineering have no idea of the truth in history or an understanding of what it means to have to earn something. Promises of we are all equal, only if you think like we do. Denial of their hatred and intolerance to those who have actual life experience. Demands of equal pay and benefits to those with years of on the job experience.

Those on the dole demanding more from those who earn. You have to provide for us it is only fair because we lack a work ethic and fortitude. Simple jealousy from the have nots to those who have. Why because in reality life is not fair and those who strive to achieve through accomplishment are rewarded for their effort.

If a candidate or Representative say like John Murtha puts his foot into his mouth and lets slip his contempt for the people. The left jumps to spin the truth. When Obama claims that people cling to their beliefs and guns is wrong and bigoted. As Barney Frank let's it be known he wants to disarm this nation with the backing of those we are supposed to trust in office. We find that questioning them about these stances is wrong and hateful. That we are either labeled or forced to feel guilty about questioning what is going on in this nation.

The left cannot, and will not be questioned on their agenda or thinking. Remember they are progressive thinkers and know better then us, the average American. We are "unenlightened". Even if we have a collage degree and have seen first hand the reality in this world. Those who have never traveled any further then the red carpets of Paris or the bars in Cancun know better how the world works.

The left cannot stand the heat. Joe Bidden and Barack Obama exemplify this by their refusal and false claims of unfair interviews and media coverage. When in fact they have faced very little questioning from their friends. So when some one like WFTV-Channel 9's Barbara West, asks the straight question. They cry foul, and deny access.

Dems to slash Military

We support the troops except when it is time to support the troops. The ralling cry of the Democratic party. Once again the dems let slip more of their true agenda to dismantle and to harm America in their socialist agenda of bowing to the world. An attempt to win favor of foriegn nations who do not like us.

Frank envisions post-election stimulus from Democrats

In a meeting with the editorial board of The Standard-Times, Rep. Frank, D-Mass., called for a 25 percent cut in military spending, saying the Pentagon has to start choosing from its many weapons programs, and that upper-income taxpayers are going to see an increase in what they are asked to pay.

Either way you look at it. this takes away from the military. Eliminating research and development decreases effectivness of current systems. This equates to lack of support.

Frank said that if the Democrats can't find an adequate agreement on a stimulus package in the lame-duck Congress, they would rather wait until the new Congress takes over — likely with many more Democrats, if polling results bear fruit in the November voting.

The reason it is lame duck is because there are a few democrats who see that even the socialist agenda does not work. With a majority in the House and Senate they could have pushed the issues and passed them but for lack of leadership could not.

Also, he said, "we'll increase the federal share of medical care so states won't have to lay off people." Unemployment insurance benefits won't increase, he said, but the period of collecting them will, and eligibility requirements might be relaxed.

An increase in time to collect benifits is an increase of benifits. Nice spin Barney but doesn't work. An increase in medicare, who will pay for this? Another tax hike coming our way.

Economic Medicine

Here is an idea to help with this home mortgage mess. It has a bad taste for lenders, but then again are they not the ones who's greed in accepting poor credit loans got us into this mess in the first place.

Let us eliminate compounded interest loans. Does it make sense to pay interest on interest? No, not unless you are a banker or the one receiving this theft economics. What is going on is that people sign loans that are compounded annually. In other words simplified. You pay interest on interest for the loan.

So let us eliminate these type of loans. The lenders will not make as much money but then again they have been robbing people blind for years and this is due them. After all they are the ones who got Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to accept loans on bad credit. I mean that they sold these poor loans and received their money knowing full well that these loans were bad. Let's call this their fine for their corruptness.

An example of this would be that no home loan can be made for more then 20 years in length. A maximum interest rate of 20% is the most that can be charged on the loan. Now wait a minute. I am not compounding this. To be somewhat fair OK.

Say that the average price of a home is $250,000.00. Now take that times the interest and you get a total amount owed on this loan of $300,000.00. That is a $50,000.00 dollar profit. You break it down to a monthly payment of $1250.00 per month. Now isn't this affordable. Also the lenders are making

Daniel Craig, Who?

Daniel Craig who is that? Oh wait that's the guy playing the new version of James Bond. Being claimed as the best Bond to hit the screen, hardly. Lets face facts it was Sean Connery who made Bond a household name. it was Sean Connery who made young boys dream of being jet setting international men of mystery not Pierce Brosnon or Roger Moore.

Sean Connery was the best James Bond hands down. But that's not what this blog is about. What we have is a complete difference of opinion on something that Danny boy said about Barack Obama.

What did he say that makes us want to comment on. Well he said the following. When asked in a recent interview who would be a better James Bond, John McCain or Barack Obama he said Barack by far for this reason: " Obama would be the better Bond because—if he’s true to his word—he’d be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them. McCain, because of his long service and experience, would probably be a better M.”

Now the fact he said McCain would be a better boss shows that McCain in his eyes is the better qualified leader and man to fit the position of President. The man who leads. A man who would use his resources and hit the enemy before they could hit us. Someone who knows when to be ready and when to act.

However to say Barack would look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them is absolutely laughable. There is no way I could ever believe Obama would stand toe to toe with any one. By the way he has lied and grandstanded in his campaign I see Barack as the type to turn and run till someone else took up the fight. Then he would fit the bill as the third dog in a dog fight. You know the little dog that nips at the heels of both dogs until the better dog starts to win. Then the little dog bullies up on the loosing dog. Now that's the impression Barack gives me. Not of the stand alone one on one fighter, but the guy who ambushes someone when their back is turned.

I cannot see in any situation Obama being the man the press makes him out to be. He just does not give off that vibe. The vibe I get is a chill up down the spine warning me of the knife soon to come.

I do agree with other things Daniel Craig was quoted as saying. That Bogart was a mans man in the movies and that Lauren Bacall was definitely a beauty.

The article can be found here:


More Race Baiting By the Left

This is amazing. Not to mention a grasp at another low by the left in an effort to smear conservatives.

We see new and different ways to associate racial hatred to anyone who criticise the left and their candidates or their ideological thinking. A way of thinking that at the best is SOCIALIST and worse COMMUNIST. It is hateful and spun into away to agitate minorities into believing that there is bigotry when there is none.

Lewis Diuguid, of the Kansas City Star now falsely claims that the term SOCIALIST is code for the Black man. Say what? Yes he claims that by exposing Barack Obama and his socialist agenda on the economic front of his campaign is racist and hints at it being bigoted.

Shame on McCain and Palin for using an old code word for black

Above is his absurd article and the link. Read and laugh at his stupidity. Then weep as this is just the beginning of how the left will label and smear all those who oppose them in ideas and politically. Should the left get more entrenched into our government we will see censorship like never before. The thought police are coming and IDIOTS like this Diuguid is leading the way.

Colorado Referendum L

Referendum L is yet another bad proposal for the State of Colorado. In first glance it looks like a cool idea. Let younger people get active in State politics. however a closer look and some simple thinking of this referendum, it is a bad idea.

What is Referendum L? Well it is to lower the age requirement for serving in the state legislature from 25 to 21. Sounds good doesn't it.

Why is it a bad idea? Simple, how many 21 year old do you know that have any true real world experience and wisdom in politics and the ways of governing. Sure there are a few remarkable individuals who are extremely smart and practical enough to do this job. However the vast majority are not mature enough for collage let alone to be in a position of authority.

One can argue that in the military there are hundreds of 21 year old in positions of authority and doing quit well at it. Well let us not forget that these individuals have been schooled, tried , and tested for their ability before given the responsibility. An actual real world experience is in the training of these fine young men and women.

I encourage the youth to get involved and make a difference. However how about a little practice and learning before being put in a position of authority. Say something simple like interning for their local Representative. Being an aid to their Representative for a few years first. Do some research and see what bills are being passed. The effect and cause of good vs. bad legislation. The learning curve first before the grade.

Now the age requirement in Colorado has been in place since we became a state in 1876. One could argue that many Representatives in the State Legislature, even at the age of 40 plus are not qualified to be there by reason of immaturity and lack of experience.

This youth movement is good but it is being pushed along to fast and too far. A NO vote is recommended for this Referendum L.


Barney Frank shows the socialist hand

Just how ignorant is the American populace? Well as this election comes closer to a finish we are learning that the American populace is fairly ignorant. Ignorant meaning that one is uniformed and unaware of what is going on.

With a sense of power being felt by the socialist in Congress (that would be the once Democratic party). They are no longer guarding or paying attention to what they say about legislation or their contempt for the American voter. Look at John Murtha. He has gone from calling his fellow marines murderers to calling his constituents racist bigots, to now calling them rednecks. Is this not contempt for those who employee him?

Pelosi is drooling along with Harry Reid on bringing back censorship in broadcasting and disguising it fairness in broadcasting. Make no mistake it is nothing more then a silencing of dissenting voices to their socialism. We have sen this happen time and time again. Remember a little thing called the Third Reich? Cuba, and lets not forget what Hugo Chavez has done on the last couple years in Venezuela. Socialism is on the move and it is here in America taking seat.

Now Congressman Barney Frank is letting it known that higher taxes are on the way. A redistribution of wealth and an attack on those who are achieving. This is classic socialist tactics. Give hand outs to those in the lowest economic class and steal from the highest economic class. This creates a huge new economic class that is not at the bottom, not middle , and not in the high economic class. It creates an economic class that is dependant on the government for a handout to survive.

Barney Frank has eluded that there are plenty of rich we can increase taxes on. But what he fails to see is this will not last. Several reasons why. One is that when you take all their money there is no more to take. Two the rich will take their money elsewhere and not reinvest it in American markets, because of the higher taxes. Savings, checking accounts, certificates of deposits all will move off shore and over seas to avoid higher taxes.

When the rich, and this includes corporations, move out of country they stop investing here. This leads to less jobs, less productivity and a higher inflation rate. This causes the economy to either slow to a crawl slower then it is now, or to stop and go backwards. This is a recession or worse a depression in the making.

Now I single out Barney Frank here because of his latest comment on taxation. However the news is full of these comments from the left. It is a hourly thing. The lefts agenda is on the move and we are about to be trampled underfoot if we do not pay attention.


Colorado Amendment 47

The Unions in Colorado are making a huge push in this state to get their greedy hands on the paychecks of those who do not WISH to join a union and force them to become members by just being in the same work enviorment as they are.

The amendment number 47 that is on the Colorado ballot is a very important one and needs to really be examined. For those who are pro union it is a great deal, for those who are not unionized and do not wish to be it is a nightmare.

Amendment 47 would prohibit an employee to join and pay any dues or fees to a labor union as a condition of employment and create a misdemeanor penalty of between $500.00 and $5000.00 dollars for violations.

Certain wording in this bill would appeal to those with socialist views about fairness. The main argument against amendment 47 is this, "employees can avoid paying their fair share for representation to improve wages, health care benefits, and work place safety."

Federal law requires that all private sector employees are to benefit from collective bargaining, whether they are in a union or not. However the greedy unions think this is unfair. They want nonunion members to pay for their interference in the workplace. Whether the nonunion member wants it or not. A complete fear of non union members and their competence is clear in this.

Unions want to do the thinking and collect a portion of the money from all workers. That the average worker is not smart enough to recognise a unsafe enviorment or realise when they deserve a raise or not. They would rather mandate that a good worker be rewarded along side a poor worker. This is not right. The individual today knows that in an unsafe work place a simple call to OSHA can fix this and that personal recognition is the best way to receive a wage hike.
It goes hand in hand with personal responsibility and a good work ethic.

Pro union people would have Coloradoans believe that this amendment if passed would keep wage levels unjustly low. Keeping the worker in a lower economic class artificially. This is false and a load of bull.

Unions want to dictate to the employer work hours, wages, what they business owner can make and keep. They also want to collect more money in the form of dues. It is in today's world the equivalent of legalised blackmail. Either give us what we want or we go on strike and the business produces nothing.

More and more States are creating and passing laws similar to amendment 47. To protect businesses from this blackmail and to protect the worker from unjust dues of the worker. Lets note that a union dictates when and where you work. If the union says strike, they do not care if you need some overtime to pay for little Billy's braces or to fix the plumbing that broke in your home. You have to strike or be blackballed in the industry. This is fascism and oppression of the worker. It is not a liberation or a benefit for the worker.

A vote yes on amendment 47 is what the worker should vote. A vote for Independence and freedom.

Socialism does not work, ask Hawaii

Here is more proof that socialism is a failure. As more and more countries turn to capitalism and move away from government handouts to government hand ups. Here in America Hawaii has learned to their "surprise" it applies to health care also. Socialist programs do not work. They cost more in the long run.

"Hawaii Ending Universal Child Health Care," after seven months. "'People who were already able to afford health care began to stop paying for it so they could get it for free,' said Dr. Kenny Fink, the administrator for Med-QUEST at the Department of Human Services. 'I don't believe that was the intent of the program.''

No , of coarse it was not the intent of the program. The program was to force those who have to pay for those who have not. In theory it sounds good, it sounds fair ...phhhtttt. What it was , was an experiment in redistribution of wealth that backfired. People saw that they were paying twice for something. So what they did was quit paying extra for the same thing. This is COMMON SENSE.

The burden then is spread over the whole populace in a tax and not just on one group over another. The Hawaiian government lost revenue. This is not comprehensible to socialist operatives. Why in the world would those who could afford it stop paying for others. It is incomprehensible for them. What makes sense is not sense for them.

Gov. Linda Lingle's administration cited budget shortfalls and other available health care options for eliminating funding for the program. A state official said families were dropping private coverage so their children would be eligible for the subsidized plan. That makes sense to me. Why pay for it if you can get it for free, right?


Powell No real surprise

Is there really any one out there that is surprised that Powell has decided to endorse Obama? Lets be real here. Powell was not a very good Sec. of State. He fought with the administration and was reluctant in decisions. As chief of staff he was really more of a distraction and hindrance to Schwartzkauf During Desert Shield and Desert Storm back in 91.

A rule of thumb for military is this. When a person goes toward the administration instead of field duty. He generally is looking to advance his career over love of being in the military and looking out for those he serves with. In other words you have those who do, and those who want to be. I am not saying all military Generals are politicians however most are. They have their career in mind over the men they are in charge of.

Powell was against Schwartkauf and his plans of war in 91. Saying that they were not good. Well we know different don't we. Storming Normin took us on a butt kicking 94 hours in Kuwait and left nothing between us and Baghdad. Powell didn't like this.

Having Powell for an endorsement is amount to having a nobody endorse you in reality. It is no surprise and really carries no weight.

Despite the spin that is coming out from the MSM today. DO NOT BE FOOLED! Powell does not speak for the military. He is speaking and endorsing as a private citizen, not a General in the military. His views do NOT REFLECT the vast majority of those in uniform.

Also let me point out that he was replaced as Sec. of STATE. Are there any hard feelings to republicans for this? May very well be as Powell did contribute the legal maximum amount to the John McCain campaign. Powell also has a social agenda, this is reflected in who he would like to see appointed to SCOTUS. So lets add these facts into the mix and then decide if his opinion carries any weight ........ nope none what so ever.

Good News

From FOX news:,2933,440601,00.html

LAS VEGAS — A 6-year-old boy kidnapped from a Las Vegas home by alleged drug dealers posing as policemen has been found alive in a neighborhood northeast of the Las Vegas Strip, police said early Sunday.

The child was "in extremely good condition" and had been taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas for examination, Las Vegas police Capt. Vincent Cannito said at a news conference.
"He is safe and in our custody," Cannito said. "It's a blessing this child has been found."

Cole Puffinburger was recovered at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday after a caller informed detectives about a child walking alone on a street in a middle-class neighborhood of tidy, modest-sized homes about 5 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas police Officer Jay Rivera said.

Detectives discovered Cole outside a large Methodist church in the neighborhood. The area was being treated as a crime scene, but police gave no information about how Cole got there or where he had been kept since his Wednesday morning abduction.

Now that is a good way to start out the week. Some good news , he isn't hurt. Now he is safe. Way to go to those who called the cops and hats off to those in law enforcement who tirelessly looked for this young boy.

Pelosi Brags, Reid smirks, Obama Parties

Over on America's Right, an excellent blog by the way and very informative. Two very well written and worded pieces are posted.

One: A Democratic Party Brings Harsh Consequences.

Two: A Liberal Super Majority.

Both of these blogs express my concerns and opinions almost to a tee. Yet Jeff Schreiber, the man behind the blog uses a more tactful and elegant wording then I would.

I have for several days been thinking of how to express and put to words what a Democratic President Obama the socialist and his comrades in arms positioned in both the House and Senate will do to this country.

Jeff lays it out fairly easily to read and comprehend. That the socialist agenda and the path of trickle up economics will set this country back years and limit business as well as growth. By punishing the achievers and rewarding those who don't want to achieve. A redistribution of wealth on the backs of the workers.

Although Jeff touches on the higher taxes and eludes to hurting business with this. He fails to explain that raising taxes on business sends them to other markets. Other markets that have lower taxes and a more friendly agenda to businesses.

Jeff also brings up the topic of the stranglehold that unions want to impose on the work environment. Something we see here in Colorado slipping in through Gov. Ritters back door while he holds it open. Let us not neglect that unions have served their purpose and to that I tip my hat. However in todays world with an agency like OSHA at hand, unions are obsolete. Today's market which once was an employee market is fastly turning to an employer market. Something that is not new as this happens approximately every twenty years. But to close shop and force people to join a union creates the same atmosphere that has killed the American Auto maker. Raising the price of good vehicles almost out of reach of the working man.

What seems to be ignored, for some reason, probably out of fear of censorship. Little blogs like this one here of mine stand no chance of survival. Even the big ones like Atlas Shrugs and Michelle Malkin are in trouble. The Fairness in Broadcasting Act is already back on Pelosi's desk waiting to go to the floor under a socialist majority vote. Make no mistake free speech will be squashed and censored. When someone like me who uses a blog to vent his opinion and frustration out there will be deemed pure hate speech if it has any scintilla of opposing view to the democrats and their agenda.

Talk Radio will be phased out to propaganda radio and the other side to issues ignored and left unheard. For years Rush Limbaugh , then Sean Hannity, Mikeal Savage, Medved, Gallagher, Laura Ingram have tried to voice the other side of issues. All the time being called racist and bigoted. Under a socialist congress these voices will be silenced.

While the little man is going to be oppressed by our own government and our hard earned money literally stolen from us. We will never see the loss of our sovereignty to the United Nations. A play that Barack Obama has publicly said he favors. An assault on the 1St and 2ND amendments. Remember Barack and socialist favor a DISARMED populace. The United Nations is calling for a world wide ban on hand guns and Barack supports it.

The United Nations is calling for a redistribution of wealth. Our CONGRESS has already passed an 845 Billion dollar bill in aid and support of this proposition. Far more money then the Untied Nations itself is willing to give.

So while Pelosi brags about having a socialist House, and Reid smirks at gaining a socialist majority in the Senate, remember Barack Obama is already planning the largest inaugural ball and party ever. His wife is already eating the lobster tails, Iranian caviar, and looking down her nose at the rest of us (but no she is not an elitist). Just remeber who vioted for this and WHO DID NOT.


Update on missing Cole

Cole's grandfather is now in custody. According to Nevada police , the grandfather is now in custody and believed to have ties to those who abducted his grandson.

The grandfather is suspected to have stolen millions from a drug cartel and the grandsons abduction is a clear message to the grandfather to return the money.

Cole needs to be FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!

This is absolutely wrong. Poor young Cole Pufinburger, 6 years old, is missing. Possibly ties from his grandfather of all people with Mexican slime drug peddlers. This is almost like a television soap.

Monday morning at approximately 0715, two Hispanic men identified themselves as police officers to gain entry to the home several miles northeast of downtown Las Vegas. They demanded money, then ransacked the home and tied up the couple. Cole, described as 3 feet 11 and 48 pounds, with blond hair, blue eyes and silver-framed glasses. Witnessed these events and then was ripped from his home and his life. Detectives think the grandfather conducted drug dealing with Mexican nationals and the boy's abduction from a Vegas house was a "message."

This is an outrage! If our boarders were a little more secure. Say like with a fence of personnel on it. Then maybe these pieces of deification from a horse would not be in this country. Or perhaps it would be alittle harder for them to slip in to this country and peddle their drugs.

A national amber alert is now in effect but this child has been abducted for over 96 hours now. He could be almost anywhere.

If any one has any doubt about my feelings to drug pushers, and these chickens who steal little boys. Let me make it clear. When these pieces of waste are apprehended, there should be no trial. There is no rights for them under the Constitution. First of all any one who uses a little child and steals them from their home has no rights in my book. Secondly should it be proven they are part of the Mexican Drug Cartels, they forfeit any rights.

If they think they can come here and send a "message", well a "message" needs to be sent back.
A good old fashion western hanging. Right down on the boarder. Let these parasites rot on the rope in plain view of the cartels with signs saying not here on them.

As for his grandfather. Should it be proven he was the cause of this and was peddling drugs as well. Then he needs to face the death penalty. Putting his grandchild at risk like this. This is outrageous!



I am shocked and surprised at the breaking news. SCOTUS (the supreme court of the United States) has just handed the election and all future elections over to those who would perpetrate voter fraud and rigging of elections.

By siding with the Ohio State Secretary and saying that she does not have to come up with any way to verify over 200,000 thousand questionable registration cards. This is clearly a violation of law and of the confidence of the people. How can we expect a FAIR and LEGALLY DEMOCRATIC election if the means to cheat and commit fraud are allowed to exist?

This is not only a Constitutionally wrong decision but it is an oppressive decision that goes against over 230 years of federal, state and local elections. A base of the foundation to this country.

We are sinking fast as a nation and world leader and slipping into the realm of a third world nation of rigged and fraudulent elections run by socialist and those who oppose freedom!!!!!!!!!
There is no bigger insult or underhanded suppression of the vote then allowing false registration to offset legal registration and fraudulent voting to cancel a legal vote.


Small Business Facts

For those who wonder about the small business man and his contribution to the American economy. Here are some more facts about small businesses.

What is a small business?

The Offi ce of Advocacy defi nes a small business for research
purposes as an independent business having fewer than 500
employees. Firms wishing to be designated small businesses
for government programs such as contracting must meet size
standards specifi ed by the U.S. Small Business Administration
(SBA) Offi ce of Size Standards. These standards vary by
industry; see

How important are small businesses to
the U.S. economy?

Small firms:
• Represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms.

• Employ about half of all private sector employees.

• Pay nearly 45 percent of total U.S. private payroll.

• Have generated 60 to 80 percent of net new jobs annually
over the last decade.

• Create more than half of nonfarm private gross domestic
product (GDP).

• Hire 40 percent of high tech workers (such as scientists,
engineers, and computer workers).

• Are 52 percent home-based and 2 percent franchises.

• Made up 97.3 percent of all identifi ed exporters and produced
28.9 percent of the known export value in FY 2006.

• Produce 13 times more patents per employee than large
patenting firms; these patents are twice as likely as large
firm patents to be among the one percent most cited.

Trade Administration; Advocacy-funded research by Kathryn Kobe, 2007
( and CHI Research, 2003 (www.; Federal Procurement Data System;
U.S. Dept. of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.

How many new jobs do small firms create?

Since the mid-1990s, small businesses have created 60 to
80 percent of the net new jobs. In the most recent year with
data (2005), employer fi rms with fewer than 500 employees
created 979,102 net new jobs, or 78.9 percent. Meanwhile,
large fi rms with 500 or more employees added 262,326 net
new jobs or 21.1 percent.

For an in-depth look at employment
dynamics by firm size from 1989 to 2005, see

What is small firms’ share of employment?

Small businesses employ about half of U.S. workers. Of
116.3 million nonfarm private sector workers in 2005, small
fi rms with fewer than 500 workers employed 58.6 million and
large fi rms employed 57.7 million. Firms with fewer than 20
employees employed 21.3 million. While small fi rms create
60 to 80 percent of net new jobs, their share of employment
remains steady since some fi rms grow into large fi rms as they
create new jobs.

How much clearer can it be

With the last of the Presidential debates now over. How clearer can it be. Obama stands for higher taxes and redistribution of wealth. While McCain stands for a slight raise in taxes, transparency of what the money will be spent on and accountability of the budget.

The differences are as defined as the Berlin wall once was. The Democrats think that in a time of a s,ow economy we should all be "Patriotic" and dig further into our savings and give, give, give. That instead of trying to achieve and better ourselves it is our responsibility to look out for the guy down the block and better his life first. Nancy Pelosi is salivating and planning on another $300,000,000,000.00 of tax payer money going to those who paid little or no taxes to help stimulate the economy the democrats are forcing to slow down and more then likely stop.

As the leader of the most do nothing House in history, with the lowest approval rating in history. She is trying now to line up her socialist agenda and call Congress back into session. Time to work she thinks. That's all good and well, however it is a little too late for reality. A last minute play and push for her "culture of corruption" to continue on their power grab.

Make no mistake, there is a power play going on. The socialist and extreme left are going to screw the average American long and hard. Higher taxes, more spending, a larger welfare state. A socialist welfare state.

If one looks around the world one will see that SOCIALISM is being forced out because IT DOES NOT WORK. Italy and France have elected moderates. A move that is draconian compared to the left leaders they had. Canada is moving conservative. In these cases means more towards Capitalism. A system that means rewarding those who achieve not punishing them.

"Joe the Plumber" is the one who will decide this election. It is "Joe the Plumber" who is either going to be aided or hurt and put out of business with this election. Those who march in the street and get in your face for Obama are the have nots. They see an opportunity to get what the haves busted their back sides to EARN.

Small Business Owners better think

The American Small Business Owner needs to wake up and fast. If they think a vote for Obama is only going to help them out because they are the little guy. Well best think again. Obama Sunday let the cat out of the bag.

"My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody." said Obama. This after letting Joe Wurzelbacher know that he will be taxed more.

Wurzelbacher is planing to become the owner of a small plumbing business that will take in more than the $250,000 amount at which Obama plans to begin raising tax rates. When asked how this will effect him Obama said, "It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama told him. "I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too."

A trickle up economic plan that is nothing but a line of smelly B.S. This is socialism at its basic concept. Punish those who try to achieve by taking away their achievements (profits) and giving the hard earned money to those who are not achieving. This spells doom and gloom for the small business.

Think about it. If you are not allowed to grow because of higher taxes are you going to hire more people? Are you going to try and expand? More insurance is and benefits are going to be paid for out of the small business owners pocket already reducing the profit margin, now higher taxes. Very few small businesses can handle this increase of out going funds. Especially when a small business that is only grossing $250,000.00 a year to begin with.

As previously posted small businesses make a lot more then the figure Obama thinks they do. We are talking gross here,. This is what is taxed not net. So now your net goes down much further because the gross is being taxed and strained by more government regulations.

The small business owner needs to wake up ands see what is planned for them. Even the little corner hair salon that supports Obama is going to be hit hard by this. Already small businesses are feeling the crunch from a higher minimum wage increase. Thus a hiring freeze is already being felt in the markets.

Now for those who think well will just contract and 1099 my workers and let them worry about this. WRONG, you are still going to be taxed on the funds you pay contract labor. No benefit there.

This trickle up theory is bogus and as much a myth as Atzlan and Global Warming. It just isn't happening.

If you vote with your heart and a false feeling of guilt, or based purely on race. Which is what so many are doing. You are not doing yourself any favors and more then likely are going to put yourself out of business.

Its time to wake up and think. A vote for Obama is not a smart vote, but one based on ignorance of the truth and the facts.

What happened to Boarder security?

In all the debates and press conferences the candidates have had since the conventions. How come the topic of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION and boarder security has disappeared. It would appear that this is no longer a concern for the political process.

But far be it from the truth those of us who are concerned with the ongoing invasion now that it is a HOT topic still. Did you know that recently the American consulate was attacked?

Associated Press Mexican official: Gunmen fire at U.S. consulate Monterrey, NL, Mex. -- Assailants opened fire on the U.S. consulate in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey, a Mexican official said. -- Nobody was injured in Sunday's shooting. Shell casings were found outside the consulate, but there were no witnesses to the attack and no one was in custody...

Where is the government on this. Why is there no major outrage on this? This is just as news worthy as if another camel jockey had driven a car laden with explosives into the Embassy in Pakistan. (camel jockey not p.c.? If you ride a camel and smell like one then you are a camel jockey.)

Some good news however on the southern front. It would seem that appealing to the green first crowd may get some more wanted attention to this problem.

Associated Press Mexican marijuana cartels sully U.S. forests, parks National forests and parks — long popular with Mexican marijuana-growing cartels — have become home to some of the most polluted pockets of wilderness in America because of the toxic chemicals needed to eke out lucrative harvests from rocky mountainsides, federal officials said...

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has got her eye on the problem , sort of. Instead of asking who and why we are being invaded she has inquired about the pollution problems. The pollution problems associated with the drug cartels and their meth labs and marijuana farms. A concern of the trash they are leaving in OUR National Forrest's. Maybe she will demand they take biodegradable trash bags with them as they pollute and invade this country.

Lets look at the facts. Drug Cartels from Mexico are not only peddling their trash here, but are using the national Forrest's as cover for this. They are also getting into the human trafficking aspect of things. Not in a pleasant way either. The murder rate along the boarder is sky rocketing. With over 5000 murders since 2005, a number that exceeds the war effort in a shorter time, (hows that bleeding heart, anti war schmucks, where is the outrage on this?). But it is cold blooded execution style murder.

The Mexican government is in a failing war against these thugs. They are out numbered and out gunned. This war is spilling over the boarder in the body count and is effecting American Citizens along the boarder.

At the next debate, wouldn't it be nice if the moderator would ask what the candidates plan to do about all this. Instead we will get more softball questions on how they feel and what is their favorite color.

The MSM is by design ignoring coverage of the boarder security problem. As long as they do not cover it and ask the candidates about it. There fore it does not exists.

Rush runs the numbers

Rush Limbaugh has the numbers that prove what I have been saying for weeks about Obama's economic disaster he plans to drop on us. I have said repeatedly that his tax plan will not work and does not favor small businesses. That is will hurt and put many out of a job and business.

Here is Rush's crunch on the numbers. Read and learn:


RUSH: Those of you out there, forget what party affiliation that you have. Forget your ideological orientation. Those of you who own small businesses and those of you who work at small businesses, I want to speak to you directly and in a pure business fashion right to your heart, here. Obviously throw some politics in because lies are being told by the Obama campaign through and through, not corrected by the Drive-Bys, about small business. That figure of $250,000 is key. It is everywhere Obama speaks. It's used all the time when he talks about tax policy. Well, what is a small business in America today? Obama says that most small businesses do not earn over $250,000 a year. That is clearly a lie.

It is impossible. It cannot be true. Your own instinct tells you that. You in small business know full well it can't be true. Now, the employees of a small business might believe it. Most employees don't get to see the books. But if you're an employee of small business, and there are five or six other employees in your small business (and that's a small business) just add up your combined salaries and find out if your small business has enough to pay them. If you're making $50,000 a year at a small business and there are five of you, that's $250,000 right there. If there are three of you and one's making 30, one's making 70, one's making 60, you can see how just the number of employees will get you close to what Obama says is the top of most small businesses.

That $250,000 is key because he wants all of you who don't make that amount of money to think you're not going to get a tax increase. Now, remember, Obama has this new coalition of voters, the 30% to 35% who pay no income tax in this country. Not only do they not pay income tax, they want you to pay more. They have seen the benefits of no income taxes. They've been told they're the backbone of America. They've been told they're getting shafted. They've been told the rich are getting all the tax cuts. They have been told that all that wealth and prosperity out there is being denied them by the rich. They pay no taxes, no income taxes. Federal income taxes. So they're thinking they've been screwed, that they've been shafted. Obama's playing to them, and he's telling them, "Because you've been shafted for so many years by Bush and so many years by Reagan, we're going to get even with the people who shafted you.

"That's that magical figure of $250,000, and he's using it in a way that is an out-and-out lie. They have been saying that most small businesses do not earn over $250,000 a year, but the Small Business Administration has a different view. I have a post here from October 7th of this year from Patterico's Pontifications, and it's entitled, "Obama's Tax Plan and Small Business." The genesis for Patterico putting this all together was Obama at the town hall presidential debate saying this about his tax policies, and it's according to a CNN transcript. Quote: "Only a few percent of small businesses make more than $250,000 a year. So the vast majority of small businesses would get a tax cut under my plan." Now, "The US Small Business Administration (SBA) defines a 'small business' according to its average annual receipts or the number of its employees."

I know numbers are hard to follow, but this will not be. I want you to keep sharp in your head the number $250,000, because that's the operative number that Obama uses. Remember Obama: "Only a few percent of small businesses make more than $250,000 a year. So the vast majority of small businesses would get a tax cut under my plan." Okay. Here. Let's look at the maximum average annual receipts by industry that a business can have and still be classified as small business by the SBA. "Crop production of all types: $750,000." Keep that $250,000 figure in mind because every business that I'm going to list here, every small business is far larger than $250,000 in receipts. Yet Obama says most small businesses do not make over $250,000. "Crop production of all types: $750,000. Animal production except for cattle & chicken/eggs: $750,000. Cattle feedlots: $2.5M. Chicken/egg production: $12.5M."

These are small businesses, according to the SBA. "Forestry & logging: $7M. Fishing: $4M." Did you know that forestry and logging has as many operators that are small businesses? It's a $7 million definition of a small business by the SBA. "Fishing: $4M. Irrigation, sewage, water supplies: $7M." These are various areas. The size of your business -- for example, if you're in housing construction and you're a business is under $33.5 million, you're considered a small business by the SBA. Now, keep in mind, Obama says the vast majority of small businesses don't earn more than $250,000. Let me keep going. "Heavy and civil engineering construction: $33.5M. Dredging and cleanup: $20M. Concrete, framing, and other housing contractors: $14M. Car dealers: $23-29M."

Do you know some car dealers are small businesses? Those of you who work at them do. If you own a dealership or series of dealerships valued in your receipts (these are annual receipts) between $23 and $29 million, you're a small business. "RV, motorcycle, & boat dealers: $7M. Furniture, hardware, clothing & sporting good stores," if your receipts are under $7 million a year, you're considered a small business. "Electronic stores..." They're not talking the Circuit Citys, the Best Buys and all this. If you're a mom and pop electronics store, $7 million is the cutoff line for you to be called a small business. "Supermarkets, gas stations & department stores: $27M." Anything over that, and you're not a small business; anything under it, you are. "Pharmacies: $7M."

Now, keep in mind, 250 grand. Obama in the presidential town hall debate said, "Only a few percent of small businesses make more than $250,000 a year. So the vast majority of small businesses would get a tax cut under my plan." The truth is that if he's going to implement a plan that people over 250 grand personally or small business, Subchapter S filing under a personal return, if he's going to have a tax increase on anybody more than 250 grand, 99% of small business is going to get a huge tax increase! The very little guy that Obama claims to want to help is the very guy that's going to get clipped here, because once these taxes go up the first instinct of the small businessman or woman is to survive as a small business.

If your taxes go up and you have an economy like this and you cannot grow for a little while because people don't have a whole lot of disposable income because their taxes are going up, too, what are you going to do? You can't keep paying people if your business is going down. Your job is to have your business survive because you have to go through the up and down cycles. You're going to have to lay people off. The business cannot purposely lose money for humanitarian reasons, for a very long time. If it does, it will go out of business and nobody will get anything from it. I listed for you -- one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, 11, 12, 13, 14 -- 17 categories of small business. Not one of them would qualify for a tax cut under Obama's plan. There are probably some small businesses that are under $250,000, but they are so tiny.

They are so small. They might be sole proprietorships. Now, there are a whole lot more examples. We're going to post all this at There are a whole lot more examples at the link. Most of the industries in the table, such as manufacturers of food, beverages, apparel, print, oil, gas, plastics, plumbing, machinery, computers, on and on and on are considered small businesses based on their total number of employees instead of average annual receipts. Now, in those industries, the cutoff between small and large businesses range from 500 to 1,000 employees per business or industry. Now, I'm going to tell you what. If you have a small business with anywhere between 500 and a thousand employees, I will guaran-damn-tee you your annual receipts are higher than $250,000 --and you, too, are going to get Obama's took us increase.

It is going to be a personal income tax rate increase, for those of you that file on your personal form, Subchapter S, on your personal return. You're going to get your own marginal tax rates go up. You're going to have to a capital gains tax increase. And it's likely that at some point down the road Obama will shore up and raise corporate taxes, in the midst of an economy that all the time all the so-called experts say is going to take a while for it to rebound here. Now the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up almost 600 points now. It's at 581. We're over 9,000 at 9,032, and of course it's (clapping) but why? Because the feds and everybody else has taken over all these banks! So the supposed free marketers on the Street here are getting all happy about socialism and nationalization.

Don't forget, in the midst of all this, we've got Pelosi and Reid and Hoyer planning a special session after Obama wins to start this process of tax increases going to eliminate their lifting of the ban of weeks ago on offshore drilling. They think they've got this in the bag. Obama is running around using this $250,000 figure for every tax increase he's planning because he figures 99% of the people in this country are employees, and they will also believe that their business will not get a tax increase because, "Obama is smart. Obama is suave! Obama is smooth. Why, it's so nice to have finally a smart guy that will be leading and speaking for America." He's lying through his teeth. Now, forget politics here, folks. We're talking about it as if this ever happens, if this actually happens, with 95% or more of all small businesses and the corporate tax, too, going up, we're talking about your standard of living.

We're talking about your quality of life. We're talking about your ability to save. I don't care whether you buy stock or you've decided to put the money in the mattress, you're going to have less of it, and eventually the oil price is going to rebound and go up. It's going to happen. There's something awfully suspicious about that dropping from 130 to 80 bucks two weeks or three before an election. But it's what it is, and of course everybody's putting out this news, "Largest single drop in the gasoline price in history!" It's thirty cents, from 3.80 to 3.30, average across the United States. Now, I have even more on this small business stuff. These numbers get even harder to translate on radio, but it is from the Census Bureau, and it's the receipt size of firms. It's the latest, most recent data we have for this are 2002, receipt size of employer firms.

It illustrates here quite readily that the... Just take this, the 100 to $499,000 figure that I mentioned earlier, there are 2,387,780 firms, there are two million establishments, there is about 8.8 million workers. The annual payroll total is... Well, forget those numbers. If you look at this breakdown and you add up all the firms and all the revenue and all the employment, there is no way that the vast majority of small businesses have only receipts of $250,000 a year! There are a total of 5,697,759 firms (we're discussing here small business), 1.2 million of them have less than a hundred thousand dollars in receipts which makes them sole proprietorships; 2.3, almost 2.4 million are between 100 and $500,000. And then as you go higher, the numbers decrease. But when you add them all up, you find that... No matter how you look at it, is the point -- whether you look at it as number of employees, whether you look at it as receipts -- there's no way Obama's even close to the truth on this.


RUSH: What a teachable moment I have here for you. I love teachable moments. I just got a couple of e-mails. I checked them; there may be more than two, but I just checked: "Rush, when you talk about receipts, a small business's receipts, $250,000, are you talking about gross or net?" Folks, you're asking the wrong guy! The onus here is not on me. You're asking the wrong guy. We don't know if Obama's talking about receipts or profits, 'cause nobody's asking him, and I'm not the one promising to raise your taxes on this. The little squirrel Obama is. Somebody needs to ask him, "Are you talking about receipts or profit? Are you talking about gross or net?" We don't even know if he's including inventory. Folks, do you understand, in a small business, you can have one person that runs a realty shop, you can have one person that runs a catering business. What about inventory, how do you calculate that in this $250,000? We do not know because Obama is not saying. Nobody's asking if he's talking about net profit, gross, we have no idea what he's talking about and neither does he, because he is lying.

The $250,000 number is designed to get most Americans thinking that they're going to get even with the people who have stolen everything from them and have gotten unfairly wealthy. He's using that $250,000 figure to secure the votes of people who want to see everybody at 250K or over get their taxes raised. The $250,000 figure on FDIC insurance guarantees it's just a further way to promote that number. Everywhere you look, Obama's magic number is $250,000. We had a brilliant caller last week, if you didn't hear this, who said Obama and the Democrats are out there saying they are for the American dream. In Obama's world, the American dream ceases to exist once you get to $250,000. "Well, Rush, do you mean net worth? Do you mean annual income?" I don't know, folks, 'cause nobody's asking Obama. I don't know if his definition of a small business of $250,000, which he says the vast majority have receipts that are smaller than $250,000. I don't know if he's talking gross or net. Don't ask me. The onus is not on me to explain this. Ask him, or get your friendly Drive-Bys. Here's the real point. It doesn't matter because he's lying 'cause the number isn't anywhere close to being accurate in the first place. So don't get caught up in net or gross. Get caught up in screwed or free.


RUSH: This $250 grand number is all moot anyway because Obama voted twice in the 2009 budget resolution to raise taxes on anybody making $42,000 a year or more.


RUSH: We're going to start Jacksonville, Florida. Hi Carl. It's nice to have you, sir, on the EIB Network. Hello.

CALLER: Hey, how you doing, Rush?

RUSH: Very well, sir. Thank you.

CALLER: When you talking about the small businesses, I'm probably the smallest business owner right now that you can find, you know, when you talking about people owning small businesses because I'm a single man operation. I'm trying to make my business grow, and I know it's going to grow and it's going to do well past 250 gross. That's what I'm talking about, and my concern is, what's my incentive, then, to hire guys to even make this business grow if I'm going to get taxed up the yin-yang that he's talking about, Obama. And I don't think it's net. I think he's talking about gross. I don't think he's talking about income. Because small businesses, I mean there are thousands of us out there that own small businesses and do this. I mean, it's ridiculous.

RUSH: We don't know what he's talking about.

CALLER: Well, that's the thing, and that's what I wish somebody ask him. I wish somebody would.

RUSH: We don't know if he's talking income. We don't know if he's talking gross. We don't and he doesn't, either. None of this is true! The $250,000 figure and his statement that 95% of small businesses earn less than that -- gross, net, inventory, whatever -- it's just the magic figure to play the class envy card.

CALLER: But he's gotta clarify that because it's scary. I'm telling you, everybody I know is a small business owner.

RUSH: Let me ask you a question. Let me ask you a question.


RUSH: This statement that he's gonna raise taxes on people over 250 grand, he's made it numerous times in the campaign. It was last week in the town hall presidential debate where he said small businesses, the vast majority of them are $250,000 or less. He didn't clarify, specify or anything. You said he's going to be forced to have to explain it. Other than today have you heard anybody even reference the fact he said it in that debate?


RUSH: Did you watch the debate yourself?

CALLER: Yes, I did.

RUSH: You didn't even pick up on it then until I talked about it today?

CALLER: I wish he did because I've been talking about it for the past month, and I don't hear anybody talking about it and try to get more specific on it, you know what I'm saying? That's crazy, because there are a lot of small businesses that make over 250. When I say I'm not, I just started last year, and my business will go over 250,000 because I know it can. The guys that I do business with and the people that are around me that do own small businesses are doing more than 250,000 a year, and that's what scares me.

RUSH: Look, I got very little time. Do your friends know what's headed for them?

CALLER: Yes, they do, and that's why they're not voting for Barack Obama.

RUSH: All right. Well, if you run into people, it doesn't matter... You know, don't use Obama's name. Well, you have to use Obama's name. You run into other small businesses who don't know what's in store for them, tell 'em.


Anyone who has started or has a small business knows that a $250,000.00 a year income is nothing. Maybe a one employee and home office. Small business will get crushed. More people will end up in the unemployed line and we will see more people with their handout looking for help.
