WELCOME!
This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

**PLEASE share this around. I didn't research, consider, write and post this junk just to have it hidden.

"Experts", when paid for certain findings, will find them.

Some local papers increasingly waste space and insult readers' intelligence with junk “news” like the Cronkite News regurgitation (4-6-14) on “climate change [man made]” and wildfire.  So sad to see more newspapers sinking into “mainstream media”, irrelevance, like the useless rags in most bigger cities. [IMHO, it is this plunge into mindless cloacum, as much as the influence of the Internet, that causes readership to plummet and makes formerly free services like graduation and Eagle announcements and even obituaries cost hundreds of dollars to get published; they are otherwise losing money and must profit from these.]

This fable insists that ‘CO2 kills trees', contributing to wildfires. 
 This requires volcanic concentrations in the soil, not parts-per-billion atmospheric fluctuations.  Trees (all photosynthetic plants) ‘inhale’ CO2 and ‘exhale’ Oxygen, so this assertion is about as sensible as decreeing that the O2 carried by Hospitals, paramedics and COPD patients is ‘deadly to humans’. Further, the minute ripples in CO2 over recent decades are dwarfed by earlier eras, with no relationship to human activity (i.e., often more growth, less CO2 and/or, more CO2, less warmth).

There are some fanciful pictures with the piece, though; much like other fairy stories
 A thermograph (limited, to avoid inconvenient levels of earlier history) suggests that the hot-spot Hell-hole of the entire American West is …wait for it… from Prescott to Flagstaff! Forget those 'mild' Phoenix and Palm Springs climbs.  For you Arizona denizens, do you remember the last 3 winters, before this year’s el Nino 
On the plus side for those that missed it in 2009, a line-graph with the article does show a classic example of the ‘hockey stick’. This conspiratorial math-skewing device pushes actual (or imagined) observations upward toward a desired (not factual) end point. 
 It was exposed in 1,079 leaked, East Anglia University emails, expressly coordinating suppression of actual science and expounding of Leftist “consensus” (as if physical facts can be ‘voted’ into changing by shouting down or ridiculing other data). Obama’s U.S.P.S. concocted these particular images, since N.O.A.A. no longerplays such games.

The 4-6 “Wizard of Id” comic strip also deals with manufactured “news” and has funny pictures; but it’s in the comics and doesn't demand that a growing majority of intelligent people abandon reality.

Left pretends that "business" loves Common Core brainwashing



 A "news release from Cronkite News on Feb 22nd defended Federal “Common Core” schooling.  Moriah Costa wrote that "business leaders" (a single usurper in the Arizona Chamber of Commerce) prefer the fact-free, Social Justice indoctrination of future American workers to actual education.  That's because, they say, it will "help the State create a competitive workforce".  Remember, it is not among the enumerated powers to even comment on, let alone dictate education requirements to the sovereign States. That is an ever-growing (thanks to Bush, Clinton and [worst] Obama) violation on Jimmy Carter's hands [there is no "Federal education responsibility" Jimmy!].  And Leftist-based, revisionist systems [educational or economic] have always failed, everywhere they have been tried.  Only slave labor (such as China and NoKor still use) manages to stagger on in a third-rate fashion for a few decades after they exhaust the productive in their societies.  Detroit is an American mini-example:  once the industrial heart of America, but under "enlightened" Leftist/Democrat rule for decades, it is now an economic wasteland and most who can have fled the area.  By comparison, the years of Bush43 were really very prosperous (must be Clinton's fault!)

"Cronkite News" [a revisionist, Propagandist training mill at
Arizona State University] has also manufactured false impressions on other issues; they maligned border security, libeled voter integrity and misrepresented reducing debt, etc.  They don’t question Leftist infiltration of Chambers of Commerce and unionized, illegal, Federal strangulation of schools or Socialized 'education' overall.

Common Core itself, likeHillary-ObamaCare”, has been in the Left’s playbook for many decades.  Unrepentant (as in, “I wish I had done more”) murderer Bill Ayers and his murderous wife Bernadine Dohrn used Communist Alinsky’s ‘clean up, look respectable’ model for their Annenberg Challenge in Chicago schoolsicagoschoolsCh. They recruited ‘community organizer’ Obama to “radicalize schools” in the 90’s.  Ayers boasted (parroting Lenin), “Give me just one generation of youth, and I'll transform the whole world.”  In 2012 Ayers claimed, “…absolute access" to the community, the school, the classroom. 


Obama added Pedophilia activist Kevin Jennings to the mix as his "School Safety Czar" and used his executive "pen"...
...ta-da: Common Core!

Some features of Common Core, which Costa and Chamber of Commerce infiltrator Hamer claim will somehow produce better, more productive businesspeople:
- Teachers’ Edition requires explaining the [revisionist] termfascist’ to students and instructing that “fascist is now applied to all right-wing groups.”
- 4th grade worksheet: ‘…Government is your family and will take care of you’.  The illustration is of UncleSam holding a “citizen” like a baby.
-  4th grade English teaches ‘Pimps’ and ‘Mobstaz’, because sexual gangster terms and Ebonics syntax and spelling will help in business.
- Possessive nouns worksheet deals exclusively with illegal Presidential powers and the need to "obey government".
- Teachers’ Edition decrees “4 x3 can equal 11” as long as future engineers or bankers rationalize their steps [it is only under this kind of rubbish that Socialist/Keynesian "economics" work - until they collapse at an average of 65 years].
- High School Literature worksheet: a woman intentionally deforms her unborn children to sell to freakshows after birth. Progressives’ heroic model of “womens’ rights”, standing up to ‘unfair norms’, right?
- The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are flawed and "being reviewed" in America; 'add, delete or rewrite a few rights' to see how easy it is.
- The Second Amendment is rewritten as "people have the right to certain weapons" [instead of "arms" - unrestricted] and only if they register them [instead of "shall not be infringed"].
Most of these outrages are only made public when shocked parents discover them in their childrens' homework; it is happening now.  Of course, Cronkite News and the rest of Obamedia never even acknowledge such disturbing FACTS.

Even Liberal CBS reports that Leftist Maryland teachers don’t approve.  They dislike C.C. “fuzzy math”; tortuousmethods replacing sensible ones and decreeing wrong answers as correct.  Also, ignoring fact and enforcing tests “rather than have kids explore the curiosity of learning.”

Productivity: Reality Sucks

Hello,

Once again, the realities of keeping body and soul and house and family and together (i.e. earning a living) intercedes in the writing of even the wisest of old wisdom.  Even when there are literally dozens of usurpations, lies, crimes, distortions and scandals, one can only do one thing at a time.  And I refuse to post something that I cannot research to the point of being confident in its veracity.

Never fear, though: Sophosarchaeus will be back soon.

Meanwhile, old wisdom is still around - just keep your eyes open for truth, seek original sources and reputable people, then, SHARE THE TRUTH with everyone reasonable enough to converse honestly with you!  Be factual (reject hyperbole and internet fantasies).  Be calm. But be firm and refuse to be 'chased' out of the argument; remember that others are listening to or reading the conversation, so let the mindless Lefty be the ridiculous, fact-free, angry, hateful, un-trustworthy, shrieker.  You may never convince your adversary, but you WILL influence most of those that watch the discourse.  And try to spread your message beyond the usual circles.  Shed a little light into darker places where reality rarely gets a fair hearing.  Some people in even the most preposterously Leftist groups want to deal in truth.  State your case, announce that you will not waste everyone's time being talked in circles or distracted by bovine excretia, and excuse yourself from the honest listeners (ignore the toady altogether).

Here we go AGAIN again gain ain ainainain[loop].

[ED: Source links in progress]
Socialists know so much BETTER than you do what is best for you and your family.


Over 4 years ago, Obamacare was imposed upon the lower (i.e. non-political) class as a non-tax, “affordable” healthcare system, using bribes, threats and secret deals, despite objections of a proven 51%+ of Americans. Government ‘healthcare’ had already failed everywhere it was tried in the world. We knew back then that it was unsustainable and dangerous and many said so.  But Obama and the other “ProgressiveDemocrats called us names and laughed that “we have to pass it to find out what’s in it”.  What's in it sucksThey embezzled $600 Billion from Medicare to redistribute as "free" care to those who were not paying for their own, free, guaranteed, emergency room treatment to start with.  Obama promised over and over that the millions of plans now declared 'inadequate' under Obamatax could be kept "no matter what".   Oh, and by the way, Obamatax was "Hillarycare" (you know, Hillary "I am a Progressive" Socialist Clinton) before it was Obamacare.  And the salient provisions of Hillaryobamatax were in dusty, dog-eared files of the Progressive Socialists for decades before Americans refused to be fooled by Clinton. Socialized or "Single Payer" medicine has been Leftists' golden fleece ('fleece' as in scam, victimize or con) for 100 years.  Thus Hillaryobamacare, which loads down private care and the cost of exaggerated coverage and unlimited delivery until our world's best private system collapses and the government must "save us" by taking total control of 1/6 of our economy and making us dependent for our very health and lives.  But then, older men do get (at exorbitant cost) gynecological and breast exam coverage while kids get geriatrics and old women get pediatric dentistry, and other "innovative" Progressive concepts.
Ah, but Obama didn't know anything about it until he read about it in the papers.

A packed Supreme Court (2 justices had previously worked in favor of Obamatax, thus making them biased and requiring their recusal, but they didn’t bother with Constitutionality or legality) issued history's only 4-1-4 ruling.  Fourruled it was 'Constitutional' despite the reality of the limits of American Constitutional government; four rejected the ideological double-talk and fabrications; and the Chief Justice ignored Obama’s own words and confirmed it as a Senate-created'tax’, despite Constitutional requirements that all taxes originate in theHouse of Representatives.  Thus, government may order We the People to do anything it wants.  Oh, and by the way, Roosevelt(D) used a packed Supreme Court to impose  what he called Social Security "Insurance" on us for 80 years.  It was never ethically or legally structured as insurance (i.e. enough input to cover possible output) then, and what is actually a  Ponsi Scheme has been teetering on the edge of collapse for decades.  Most of those now working will never see any of the money that was extracted from their paychecks, let alone full value.  It has already been 'distributed', you see, and only ever-increasing taxation keeps it afloat.

OH! And now, Sebelieus and Obama have secretly 'decided' [a power reserved to the Attorney General in the short term and the Supreme Court for permanence] that Federal anti-corruption laws "dont apply" to the entire HillaryObamatax system, its subsidiaries, designers, executors, enforcers, beneficiaries, cronies, profiteers....

But then, I'm sure Obama "just heard about it".

Having increased debt by $7 Trillion in 4 years (more than all previousPresidents combined), Obama announced weeks before "the shutdown" [actually only a 17% reduction in operations] that he would “not negotiate” (with the co-equal branches of government) over the Federal budget or debt.  He demanded unlimited spending and uncontrolled government.  Some House Republicans tried to resist, and protect the now 71% of People (85% already had the insurance they wanted) want HillaryObamatax overhauled or replaced.  They were called “terrorists", "criminals", "extortionists", "arsonists” and other respectful and civil things (while the Progressive Obama regime does negotiate with actual Jihadist mass murderers and rogue-Statenuke and chemical violators).  Senate Dictator - er, Majority Leader - Harry Reid(D) refused to allow even debate, let alone votes, on amendments or  House bills offered to the Senate.

But remember, Obama doesn't know anything about that.


Obama violated "the law of the land" and  excused businesses from the law to provide insurance, but individuals dependent on those businesses for their insurance are still mandated to get it. He and his HHS Czar Sebelius also excused their own families, cronies, Leftist Unions, and a few others in the political class.  The web architect warned last spring that the system did not work and had no "I.D. theft" protection for our personal data.  Sebelius has now (round II of hearings) even admitted (under terrific pressure from GOP Senatorial investigators) that 'some felons might be collecting' your personal data and being paid by the taxpayer to do it. But Hillaryobamatax has been unleashed

And Obama knows nothing about the website, which is the "easy part".

Oh, by the way, the promised "just like making an airplane or hotel reservation" Hillaryobamtax Exchange website aint quite so.  It seems that word got out about how (except in a couple of crony Blue States) the prices were much higher in the Exchanges.  So, just a couple weeks before the rollout, Executive Orders were decreed, removing the "price browsing" or "window-shopping" ability of potential clients until AFTER they had committed, signing up for coverage. And a cute little caveat was discovered in the source code for the site.  It seems that your computer can read it to you if you know how to ask, but it is invisible on the Obamatax site itselfThe one that has been 99% impenetrable.  It says that "You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system." Pretty cool, considering that warnings were sounded about vulnerability to I.D. theft (YOUR identity) a year ago, as the "navigator" operators were never vetted for drugs, criminal backgrounds or even current warrantsAlso, in shades of IRS/NSA/DOJ/DEA/EPA/DNC gang-persecuting of conservative American Citizens without probable cause, it adds, "At any time, and for any lawful government purpose, the government may monitor, intercept, and search and seize any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system." Hm, what ever happened to, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized" ~ IV-A?

But former adjunct "Constitutional Law professor" Obama wouldn't know anything about that.

Google,  Apple, Amazon and other servers each handle billions of transactions per week.  Progressives said that 30 million must be enrolled into Hillaryobamatax and paid $600 million to foreign web designers.   But in 3 weeks, only 9.5 million even visited the site.  Only 3.5 million tried to ‘register’ for information.  Only 1.3 million succeeded.  Hearing about the terrifying increases (200-400% on premiums, 200-300% in copays and deductibles), only 36 thousand actually enrolled. Oh, and by the way, HHS techs admit that the "window shopping" ability was ordered out of the website just weeks before the rollout, making the discovery of those unaffordable prices difficult for those who don't watch FOX.  Even the poor must pay 12% of total income before any subsidies kick in.  Site traffic has dropped by 88%, obviating the Left's constant drumbeat that 'millions are frantic to lay hands on affordable healthcare'..  NY Times, CNN, NBC and other latecomers now confirm that thesystem is simply unworkable and the plan is stunningly unaffordable.   A few “Republicans” supported the Left in the efforts to slow or stop Hillaryobamacare and debt increases via negotiation.  They pushed responsibility back a few weeks, ensuring that we have to pay more and then re-fight all this again in January.

But Obama won't know anything about any of that "technical" stuff.

Progressives reversed all the facts about not only Hillaryobamatax, but the economic issues; including their fabricated threats of "default” if the debt limit was not raised without restriction.  That could not happen, since government already takes in 10 times our payment obligations even without an increase.  So, all that is needed is to pay bills and cover Federal Responsibilities before giving away any more billions to cronies, foreign companies, Illegal Aliens and freebies.  The GOP House pre-passed several bills to reduce negative impacts (before and after the "Slimdown"), but the Leftist Executive branch issued orders to intentionally ignore or mis-interpret all of them to maximize pain to the People. The 17% reduction of non-essential personnel when the budget was delayed was called “total Shutdown” by the Left (DNC and/or GOP).  Executive Orders were issued to rent and place barricades, then guard them to deny We the People access to our own monuments.  DOD appointees denied death benefits for service members and their families.  These were unreported or reverse-reported by most media.  Obama and the Progressives crowed about “winning” the political fight, accuse Conservatives of “brinksmanship and extremism” and make ridiculous claims of “cutting debt” while spending more of our grand children’s money.  Obama claims that slightly limiting his massive increases is “the biggest cut in the deficit in history” and now it is time to re-re-re-revisit confiscatory taxes on the evil rich, Illegal Alien amnesty and Second Amendment infringement.

And now, it turns out that, "...if you like your insurance/plan/doctor, you can keep it, PERIOD" or, "...you can keep it, NO MATTER WHAT", has an asterisk (*).  [No, a BIG asterisk.]





Now for the switcheroo.
* [...well, that's a little better.  Try again.]

[...now you got it.]
Witness actual, Socialist, "REVISIONIST HISTORY" in the making:
However, Obama keeps telling us "liars" and "teabaggers" to remain civil and let him do as he wishes "under the Constitution."

And keep in mind, here:
Richard Nixon was hounded out of office [resigned when confronted by the Liberal media] solely on the strength of the charge that he "lied to the American People" (about his knowledge of a 4th rate, 'political tricks' burglary of a DNC office to find information about his opponant).  No one was killed, no treasury losses were incurred, no American jobs were lost.
Bill Clinton was impeached [brought to trial] solely over the fact that he "lied to the American People" (about having sex with a staffer in our Oval Office).  No one was killed, no treasury losses were incurred, no American jobs were lost.
Obama has presided over the implementation and coverup of HillaryObamatax as well as Benghazi, Fast and Furious, "Stimulus" embezzlement and waste, 14% unemployment/underemployment, weaponized IRS attacks on Conservatives, wholesale spying on innocent Americans, etc, etc.

Now, Harry Reid tells us that we need more taxes (than the highest revenues in history) and that "everyone wants to pay more".  Still no progress on responsibility (or even 'transparency') for the "old business Secret Service scandal, the G.S.A. scandals, the Stimulus diversion/embezzlement scandals, the Fast and Furious scandal (and illegal use of Executive Privilege), the EPA scandals, the Benghazi scandal (and the lies told over the victim's bodies), the I.R.S (and DEA, FBI, DOJ...) scandals, the NSA scandals, the 15% unemployment/underemployment scandal....
...Oh, and by the way, it is once again "Republicans fault" and even "Bush's fault".

But its not Obama's fault.  After all, he knew "nothing about it", but proclaimed as PotUS that "the police acted stupidly".  And he was unaware until it was on the media, but the "President of all the people" saw a proven felony-assault "son" in Martin.  He was busy sleeping and fund-raising and repeated over and over that Benghazi must be some kind of "video", even over the bodies of the victims.  He had no clue at all that thousands of guns were issued by his Attorney General to foreign narco-terrorists.  He is, however, the most savvy consumer of intelligence in history, and really doesn't need those pesky and under-informed intelligence briefings with their boring binders full of expert data.  Can't get good help, I guess.
