Much as I love this country it has its flaws and the answers to correct these flaws demand intelligence and action that is beyond my means or education. For instance, New York City and Chicago have the dubious reputation of most crime, including murders. Yet, these two cities are now squabbling over which has the highest building in the country and have hired “experts” to determine the “winner”. Why not spend money to clean up these cities, improve schools and help children, to beef up law enforcement?
Much of the crime nationwide is blamed on guns. Guns are inanimate tools. There are many other weapons but it seems just like “blaming Bush” the so called leadership nationwide is blaming guns, not those who are using guns. Did you know that for several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers such as Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms and Harrington/Richards. After some digging is has been learned that The Freedom Group is owned by Cerberus Capital Management. And guess who controls Cerberus? It is George Soros, Obama’s chief financier, who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns. Soros is well known for causing the bankruptcy of some European nations and apparently the United States is on his present list. By the way, Soros also owns Progressive Insurance, one of the biggest supporters of the ACLU.
John McAfee of the anti-virus company McAfee Inc. says the on-line Obamacare site is a hacker’s dream and could cause the loss of homes, retirement and savings for millions who will lose their identities. McAfee said, “The way it is set up make it ridiculously easy for fake websites to be set up, by people with very minimal knowledge and skills, to fool people to think they’re signing up for Obamacare.
Did you know that a “Voluntary Surrender” of a license is something you do when you’ve been accused of something and surrender before the state suspends you, such as Barack Obama did in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application – and therefore, he is no longer a lawyer. Then in 1993 Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for insurance fraud.
The Social Security Administration began in 1935 and after 77 years, it is broke, thanks to Lyndon Johnson’s administration moving these interest bearing funds into the general fund for legislators to waste on pet projects. Fannie Mae started in 1938 and after 74 years, is broke. The War on Poverty began in 1964 and after 48 years and 1 trillion dollars confiscated each year and transferring it to the poor, they only want more. Medicare and Medicaid started in 1965 and after 47 years it is broke. Freddie Mac started in 1970 and after 42 years is broke. The Department of Energy started in 1977 to lessen our need for foreign oil and now we import more oil than before – 35 years and an abysmal failure. Ponder this information and ask yourself if you really think we should trust a government-run health care system. By the way Food Stamp numbers under Clinton were 23 Million, under Bush were 23.5 million, and under Obama are 39.5 million. Is this leadership you want?
Along with this administration we also have Dianne Feinstein (a California product) who said in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, “All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.” This was said as she scrabbles to save her anti-firearms bill. As Frank Nimmo said, “There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi [all California products!], they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on “Macbeth”. He went on to say, “The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.” A report by Columnist Burt Prelutsky of the Los Angeles Times.
One lady commented on a previous Letter to the Editor from me about Muslims being appointed in and by the White House. Here you go: Arif Alikhan is Asst. Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security. Mohammed Elibiary is now Homeland Security Adviser. Rashal Hussain is Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Salam al-Marayati is Obama Adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and is its current executive director. Imam Mohamed Magid is Obama’s Sharia Czar from the Islamic Society of North America. Eboo Patel is on the Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. The foxes are now officially living in the hen house!
The above are just thoughts to ponder.
