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.

We are "better off" (Obama). WHEW! [updated 11-17-11]

Obama shows his grasp of reality. (Or his respect for telling the truth to the People.)

NBC News via YouTube

Obama went on to say, "I don’t think the country is stronger yet than it was when the economy was still booming and we didn’t have Wall Street crisis, and we didn’t have the housing bubble burst. But, we’ve made steady progress, we just need to make more."

Probably every visitor to this page knows someone (several someones) who are far worse off than they were just 2 years ago (giving full credit to Obama after 5 months free of "Bush" - unlimited Progressive Socialist power with super-majorities in both houses and the White House). Most of us are just struggling to say afloat at the same level, while 15,000,000 more Americans are on welfare and size of the labor force has actually shrunk: so many have given up that the unemployment rate actually appears better than it is.

Meanwhile, the "#Occupy 99%" rioters are burning Oakland while their Progressive "Mayor" dithers. Europe wavers between disaster (letting bankrupt, Socialist Greece go up in flames from their own unions, without a bailout) and just sinking deeper into the trap (bailing them out for a few weeks, as their debt gets bigger, along with Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Germany [yadda]). It is this European Socialist model that Obama and the rest of the Progressive Socialists and union cronies are steering us toward.



 And back to Progressive D.C.:

Um, hello?  You readers know better than that.  If you count those who have given up or fallen off official unemployment, the real number of Americana that have to work but cannot find any is closer to 19-20%.
Pelosi continues to hallucinate or  manufacture stuff to tell the electorate.

And back to New York, where #Occupy started. Obama says they have legitimate arguments and Pelosi says, "God bless them; they are grass roots ...and they will be effective".  Whew!  At least they aren't those dangerous, threatening, dirty Tea Partiers:


And here is the reality of our economy. The Congressional Budget Office has already predicted that next year (right through elections) will continue to be 'flat' at best. That is,unemployment and the economy will continue to stagger at near-historic levels for years unless the reckless spending and debt of the Progressive Socialists are not just frozen as Democrats have proposed, but drastically cut. The Free Market (yes, Capitalist) economy must be cut loose from strangling regulation and crushing taxation so that it can use the money they are sitting on to hire, build and produce. No amount of smoke and mirrors, governmental, cronyist spending will even get us back down to the 8% unemployment that Obama promised his Keynesian/Marxist agenda would keep us below. The threat of "skyrocketing" energy and the costliest parts of Obamacare yet to come have employers and investors hoarding their money (including a lot of "stimulus" money) until they know when and if they will be able to use rather than waste it.  Obama "jobs" gimmicks worth a few hundred or thousand dollars will not entice them to spend tens or hundreds of thousands on each machine or employee.

"A little #Occupy reality" Part II [Final update: 12-11-11]

This is a follow-on piece to my earlier "updated" post; it was getting too be terribly long. Too much is happening and more violence and revelations come out everyday. Minimal commentary here, just enough to explain any ambiguities. Consider it a clearinghouse.  This will be updated as well - please check back after a couple of days.

But first, a word from the SPONSORS OF #OCCUPY:
...each of these anti-American groups helped organize, supports and/or joins with the Occupy rioters.  They would gladly also organize, support and join in your neighborhood going up in flames and your family in rags if not chains.  There are others, like specific labor unions; who spend their members' money whether they approve or not.
 - - - - 
And, apropos of the "sponsor sheet" above, here is the final update [once again advanced in order to make sure it is not overlooked by readers].  The link to George Soros' Tides foundation has been uncovered.  In the article HERE, the sophisticated operation was revealed to CNN; but "the donor" who paid for it all was not disclosed.  Further investigation linked the spokespersons' links to this and other Soros fronts, dating back to the Left's creation of #Occupy Everything, years ago.

Having driven off the small contingent of legitimate, not-too-far-from-Tea-Party protesters that want our system cleaned out and tuned up, the remaining hard Left (not a typo*) Anarchists and Communist revolutionaries (*which meet them at the bottom of a proper, circular political continuum) have important work to do:  planning, propagandizing, scheming, sabotaging, conspiring, misleading, history-revising....yadda-yadda, the whole Leftist (for the benefit of the "higher power" of global profiteering) bag.

For those who are unfamiliar with Mr. Soros (George Schwartz's pseudonym: it means "the one who soars" in the made-up non-language of Esperanto - which basically denies individual nationality or language), he started his career under the NAZIs, selling out his own Jewish people for profit, then moved up to the Soviets's anti-Semitic campaign when Hitler "underperformed" (lasted only 12 years).  He considers himself above Socialists, but they are useful in his lucrative, insurrectionist 'hobbies'.  Also above family, religion, nationality, humanity, God...

Since then, he has connived, undercut, destabilized and sabotaged several different countries' economies, while he had monetary fund "bets" against them.  Basically, this means he collapsed people's systems so that their earnings were worthless, making him billions in the process each time.  He has been working on the collapse-reisistant American Free Market system for decades: he wants your earnings and savings in his bank account.

Back to the oft-updated post!

 - - - -
SophosArchaeus has moved this new (11-7-11) development to the top of the order.  When you see it, you will understand why.  It seems that more and more children - - we're talking under 12 years old - - are showing up at these filthy, violent, drug and sex ridden cesspits.  Get a throw-up bowl handy, fellow parents and others who love and respect of children.  Parents are using their own children as HUMAN SHIELDS.  Some have hidden behind them as they threw objects at police.  Here, they placed kids in wagons in front of doors where a conservative group was meeting, hoping to "lock" everyone inside.  The idea was, if attendees or police tried to force the doors open, they would not be able to avoid knocking the kids over.  The Anarchist animals were, of course, ready to rush in with cameras, issue their ubiquitous fake screams and blame everything on their victims: the attendees and the police.

More new video that needs to be shared: Everyone has seen the #Occupy U.C. Davis riot, where police were forced to pepper spray their way out of a larger, encircling mob making threats. It was carefully framed so that the circle is hard to see.

Here we see what you did not see (because it was cut from the beginning to reverse the event): the frame-up. They intentionally cut if from the beginning of the incident, then released it later as if it was the reaction of the rioters, rather than the frame-up. Notice how it is exactly what the police described, surrounded and outnumbered 10 to 1, with the mob shouting threats and demands. Finally, before the sprayng (as opposed to using night-sticks) they were liberally warned of exactly what would follow (pepper spray, arrest and prosecution) if they continued their declared unlawful assembly.

Also notice how crisply the mob reacts to their Anarchist controller: lots of shouting and threatening noise, instant silence, mindless repetition of demands, then seeming peace (as the chain of "sitters" block the only way out of the circle). Just what you need if you are shooting from a script and need to edit the footage later, reversing events in the minds of an audience for propaganda. By the way, rioters are not empowered to detain or make demands of the police that are dispatched to quell them. These things are called FELONIES. I don't know about you, but I would not try to step over (exposing myself) or go hands-on (for arrest) with members of a mob like this.

Too complex for mindless, drugged-out mobs? Remember, they have been practicing the unquestioning repetition of senseless slogans (human megaphone?) at every venue for weeks and weeks, and the chief sponsor of this Anarchist attack is the Socialists: the creators and masters of PROPAGANDA. This was all scripted out (though too cheesey for reality) well in advance. "You and your friends may go"?? Really?!?

- - - - Back to the original timeline:

First item, Oakland's Progressive Socialist Mayor initially placed the blame for violence, stirred up by the anarchists of the Occupy riots, on her own police officers. Now, after increasing terrorism, she sings a different tune (thanks to FOXnews):

Next, a FOX news piece showing ACORN's involvement (on taxpayer's dime?) in organizing and supporting the #OCCUPY rioters and increasing vandalism and violence. Embedding not yet available, see it HERE.

As a follow-on, FOX learned that ACORN freaked out when the first exclusive broke, and fired people threatened staff, shredded evidence - - you know, the typical ACORN behavior when revealed. Article HERE.

Then, addressing the 'humane' intentions and general concern for others among the #Occupy rioters:

(from MRC)

Here is a piece From the Daily Caller (not a "right wing" outlet) on a new riot in D.C.  Watch as anyone in a "luxury" car (anything that is waxed and has current registration and all its parts) is denied passage on the public streets that the rioters don't have a parade permit for.  It doesn't matter if they have kids on board or live on the occupied street.  Later on, it doesn't matter if a shoved around family has their 4 year old  IN THEIR ARMS as they try to get down the street - they engage in quite an argumen [see above insert].  Dad carries the child and tries to evade, while Mama Bear drives back the cowardly mob.  Next, innocent elder women are knocked down by the mob, sustaining injuries.  One of them, 78 year old Dolores Broderson, rode a bus for 11 hours (as it is a grass roots, self-funded group whose mission is to make everyone more prosperous) to get to a conservative event.  Listen as the animals scream, "Don't blame us, blame yourselves!"  We won't add to the obvious tresspasses, vandalisms, minor batteries and false imprisonments (felonies); but near the end, some rioters apparently blocked in someone who had the gall to try and get home, and they did their flop to the ground and scream trick.

New video has been released on the DC riot vs "Americans for Prosperity" (an "everyone do well and live better" type group of $35k $70k folks).  Here is one from participants in the "American Dream" conference that was interrupted, invaded and locked in:

Did you notice the "rich banker" (black dude with kid) in his chauffeur-driven, stretch Rolls Royce limo (looks like a mid-class import SUV to me), demanding to get by?

And here is a whole string of videos (thank you, AFP) showing many outrages by the pro-Socialist Occupy rioters and the people they are victimizing:
There is video out there showing the "protester hit by a car".  I saw it briefly on FOX but have not yet found it for posting here.  Basically, a white compact can be seen waiting for a green light, and several rioters hustle up and stand in front of it.  Many other rioters are prowling past [I wonder: how many carjackings in D.C. per year?  Just a thought.].  Anyway, the car is seen edging forward until one thin, possibly black man is touched, gets enraged and hammers on the hood of the car.  If that's me driving my family in my car, I floor it.  The driver involved [more info HERE] has more trust and patience than me, and just rolls on, shoving the rioter out of the way.  Police report (correctly) that the driver had the green light and the rioters were unlawfully in the street.  Funny thing is, the 29 year old driver of a nice but non-exclusive car was probably fairly sympathetic to the #Occupy "movement" until this stupidity and the resultant crowd calling for his head.

Here is a textbook arrest, with exceptional patience by the officers, after an Occupy Oakland thug trespassed and disrupted a private meeting.  He decides to add resisting arrest [and could be charged with escape, getting back out of the car], but is still treated with more respect than he deserves.  Meanwhile, a bunch of junior-high [age and/or mentality] chants absolute nonsense, without a clue if he is a 'political rpisoner' or a mass murderer.

Thanks to Media Research Center

A reasoning human tries (and fails) to discern any reasoning thought  on the part of the rioters.  To fill the time, he assembles the scorecard for the #Occupy "movement" [this is a public service, as most of the rioters can't track further than, "one, two..., oh wow, man."

Here, another protester tries to make his point:  Its all about Unions handing out signs (and money) to hold up as each other gets arrested, and they don't care if there is another Great Depression...

And HERE is Van Jones, threatening us again.  It seems he foresees #Occupy as not only equivalent to the 1000% larger Tea Party, but "evolving" into something more powerful and seizing power.  This as #Occupy rioters in NY and elsewhere again try to block businesses, highways, bridges and attack police.  And it looks like it is "spreading and evolving", since one of the Occupy rioters fired two rounds from an assault rifle into White House (that's our Presidential residence, not Obama's).  They even developed their own elites and ghetto, and even "the Daily Show" was onto it.

What is the response of the rioters to a [drug-impeded, incompetent, Leftist] assassination attempt?  One thing we know is, there's no way they could endorse even this kind of weak-kneed shooting.  Right?

Hm.  A new low, even for these animals.  And it's not like they proclaim his innocence; as they pass the can they ask for donations for "the guy that shot at the White House".

But the next day, they are even lower.  From anti-American to criminal to terrorist: they not only block workers and school kids, they follow and threaten those little children!

And while most cities are fed up with the health hazards, open drug abuse, rampant vandalism, assaults, rapes, suicides and murder, HERE is what the intrepid [or is that vapid?] City of Los Angeles does with its' Occupy rioters.

The City of Los Angeles is even more doomed than the rest of the State of California. Paying the rioters off for their anti-American, nihilist obstruction of honest people trying to earn a living wage. One hardly knows where to begin in such an absurd situation.

And finally, when they have long since chased off the few sincere or meaningful protesters they had and replaced them all with Anarchists, criminals (drug abusers, rapists, thieves and thugs) and lunatics, it gets cold and wet. The 0.099% had vowed to man their posts forever. To stand and demonstrate (as their Socialist masters depend upon to scare the masses into the arms of their "strong leadership and protection") until the system is purged of evil success and self-reliance. But, as I said, it's getting chilly. #Occupy Indianapolis is not the first where paid mercenaries have been proven to exist to promote an appearance of many with a cause, but it is the first place where the entire protest (all 4 of them) are paid homeless people. Might as well get less than minimum wage if they have to stand out in the cold and damp anyway; while the noble @Occupiers sit at home in their heated apartments and ranch-style homes:

All this just to try to stir up class hatred against investors and employers.  We have already seen the rioters doing their 1933 Germany style hate-speech against Jews.  Mob rule just picks out somebody they don't like and that is the enemy du jour.  Tomorrow it's those haters that hold U.S. Citizenship in Tucson; people evil enough to be born white in Scranton "gotta go (hey-hey, ho-ho)" next week.

Respect your elders..

They have been through a lot more, with a lot less, expecting no payback.

[thanks to Michael DeAdder, Halifax Daily News)

...and they if they were able to become elders, they aren't pointless, mindless, suicidally narcissistic mopes, like many unattended children these days.

It's November... three years down the road.

In a new GOP ad, Obama speaks for himself.  Listen to him!

Hope and REALITY

Some facts (please check, yourself!) on the “most open and transparent” administration in history:

The #Occupy riots:  Neither “grass roots” or a “movement”, they were planned and financed by S.E.I.U., Move-on, Code Pink, WorldSocialism.org, et al.  Obama appointee/Communist Van Jones, other Socialists and Anarchists announced them months ago (this is funny, since Anarchists are supposed to be "far Right" and Socialists are "far Left".  Interesting how they work together - and have for over 100 years).  A few protesters were legitimate at first; now they’re uniformly anti-Semitic, pro-Socialist and/or anti-AmericanU.S. flags are defiled and banners proclaim “F*** the troops”.  Unions paid some (illegal alien) protesters to hold signs.  Occupiers leave tons of filth, assault, rape and steal from each other.  They are endorsed by Democrats, unions, ACORN,  Socialists, pro-Islamist C.A.I.R. and the K.K.K.  They deny that bailouts, forced on banks by Progressives, were repaid (with interest).  They set-up or attack police, then produce their cameras and fake screams.  Their goal is to create anarchy for Socialists to exploit for powerMedia conceal the facts and exaggerate their numbers, but pollster Doug Schoen (D) and others prove the truth. Perhaps the whole issue is a decimal or percentage error.  They are not "the 99%" but the 0.099% - - a splinter fringe group.

Obama’s “jobs” bill:  This is basically a repeat of Stimulus I. Back then, Obama threatened that if his Stimulus was not passed, "unemployment could exceed 8%" (insinuating it would stay at 7.6%).  Here we have sat for the last 25-26 months with unemployment over 9% and an additional 9% having fallen off the bloated, extended unemployment rolls.  As Obama demanded on Sept 8th, the House under Boehner's GOP leadership voted on StimII “right away”.  Dems joined in its bi-partisan defeatHarry Reid (D) delayed it for weeks in the Senate, ignoring Mitch McConnell’s (R) call for a vote.  Reid then altered the bill, blocking GOP input; yet Dems again joined in the bill’s eventual bi-partisan defeat.  It is a mix of small, temporary tax credits, large, permanent tax increases and give-aways.  These include billions for non-critical “infrastructure” projects, but only for unions and “Solyndras”.  It includes a few GOP initiatives that Dems previously blocked.  Meanwhile, the House passed 15 (make that 22) jobs bills since June, which remain blocked in the Senate.

Operation Gun-Runner:  Following a small, strict Bush-era program ("Operation Wide Receiver"), Federal agents (under Obama appointees Holder and Napolitano) were ordered to pressure gun dealers to sell to selected buyers: known Mexican narco-terrorists.  Unlike Wide Receiver, wherein 500 guns were carefully tracked (though a few were lost) over 2 years to discover smuggling connections, Gun-runner involved over 2,000 high-powered guns, allowed to “walk” by dozens and hundreds; just disappear into the Mexican countryside with no surveillance.  There was simply no plan to track them. They were used to kill thousands of innocent Mexicans and at least U.S. Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata.  Holder and Napolitano denied knowledge of it, weeks after his Deputy advised Holder and Obama announced it as an anti-gun tactic.  In fact, after repeated opportunities to apologize and take responsibility, Holder can only fall back on the original, Socialist plan and claim that more gun laws are needed.  This is in spite of the fact that historically, increased restriction on the posession of guns by lawful citizens always results in an increase in crime and death, while relaxing gun laws on the law-abiding always results in a lower crime rate.  That's because criminals simply ignore gun laws [that's what they DO, folks] and prey on an unarmed populace.  When there is greater danger of resistance, they go elsewhere.

Now the administration wants a law to give them permission to lie to courts and the People.  The Freedom of Information Act ("FoIA") allows citizens to get copies of government documents, keeping leaders honest.  The government can deny a request if it jeopardizes an investigation and the People can appeal the denial in court.  They can even respond, "the requested record(s), if they exist, would jeopardize xxx investigations if released".   They cannot say "No such record exists" if a record does exist, and thwart the oversight of Congress and the regulation of the courts.  Judges have ruled many times (more often than not, on a Leftist FoIA request) that the government cannot lie, especially to courts.  Holder’s “Justice” Dept has withdrawn the request, but responded that they already have authority to lie to us at will - - ‘granted’ by an internal DOJ policy memo.

That last fact may be the scariest of all.
