Obama Governs

We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation.  I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders…” – Barack Obama


“This is the common parlance of the dictator, assuming that he represents all Americans, that he’s a unifying figure, that we just need to concentrate more power in his hands. He will decide what laws are good, what laws are bad. He will use executive orders to pass laws that Congress won’t pass and he will ignore laws he doesn’t like and he’ll rewrite laws that he wants to rewrite like ObamaCare and so forth. This is the mindset and language that dictators have.” – Mark Levin


“There is no constitutional provision nor statute that explicitly permits executive orders.”  – Wikipedia

Executive ordersCarlos Castaneda’s Yaqui Indian sorcerer Don Juan asserted that “Nothing can temper the spirit of a warrior as much as the challenge of dealing with impossible people in positions of power.”

Don Juan may have been fictional, but Barack Obama and his Marxist sidekicks are, unfortunately, all too real.  And so is their unrelenting assault on the American republic.  Checks and balances, our constitutional bulwark against tyranny, vanish with a stroke of Obama’s poison pen (held, of course, in his left hand).  Petty tyrant was Don Juan’s term for such folk, and there’s not many better descriptions of the commissars who populate the current administration.  Or for the hoards of faceless bureaucrats who infest the federal leviathan, those anonymous and unelected regulators responsible for saddling the nation with 80,000 pages of un-legislated twaddle in 2013.  Each and every American is guilty of breaking some obscure law or rule or regulation that they never knew existed.  And that’s the point.  Ignorance of the law is no excuse.  Any one of us can be hauled into some dingy federal outpost for questioning at any time.  Increasingly, our freedom depends on the whim of the tyrant.

And they’re breeding faster than our warriors.

My new economic plan will collective the city!

My new economic plan will collectivize the city!

Bill de Blasio, the mayor-elect of New York City has announced a five-year economic plan to revitalize the city.

“My New Economic Policy is what this city needs to move forward” declared de Blasio.

Naturally this will entail change and change will always be painful to the entrenched capitalist interests.  The first part of the plan will a necessary decree on property. Under this decree stores in New York City will be collectivized.  Store proprietorship will be abolished forthwith without any compensation to the capitalists.

de Blasio then gave the details of his progressive economic plan.

  • Stores and church land and everything pertaining thereto shall be placed at the disposal of the property committee of the New York City Soviet Peasant’s Deputies.
  • All damage to confiscated property, which henceforth belongs to the whole people, is proclaimed a grave crime punishable by the citizen’s revolutionary courts of New York City.
  • Private ownership of stores, condos and apartment buildings shall be abolished forever.
  • Persons who suffer by this property revolution shall be deemed to be entitled to public support only for the period necessary for adaptation to the new conditions of life.
  • High-level stores shall not be divided up but shall be converted into model stores to be turned over for exclusive use to the City or to the communes depending on the size or importance of such stores.
  • The question of compensation shall be examined by the City Soviet Peasant’s Deputy Committee.
  • The employment of hired labor shall not be permitted.
  • Peasants who owing to old age or ill health are permanently disabled and unable to cultivate former property of capitalists shall lose the right to the use of it but shall be entitled to receive a pension from the city.
  • All property when alienated shall become part of the City property fund.
  • Should the available property fund in a particular district prove inadequate for the needs of the local population, the surplus population shall be settled elsewhere.
  • Resettlement shall be effected in the following order:  landless peasants desiring to resettle, then members of the commune who are of vicious or capitalist habits, deserters and so on, and finally by lot or agreement.

“This plan shall ensure a dominant future for our beloved city” said de Blasio.

By eliminating private property we shall eliminate the class struggle.  What could possibly go wrong?

The New York City Soviet Peasant’s Deputy Committee shall have its first meeting next week.

Useful Idiot of the Month Nomination Thread: May 2013


useful idiots 3

Well folks, it’s that time  again -when we put on our thinking caps and determine who the most useful Useful Idiot of the Month was.

If you are unfamiliar, the Soviets coined the phrase “Useful Idiot” for people in Western Countries that advocated for Marxism.  Of course, they were either idealistic rubes or ambitious fools that would more than likely be the first to the wall AFTER the revolution came.  They were only useful in destabilizing the free country of their birth.  Once the real Marxists took over, they poor useful idiots would no longer be useful.  So, many suffered what I would like to call:

Sudden Onset Inter-cranial Lead Poisoning

For our purposes, we nominate people that spent the month promoting Marxism, Communism, Socialism, or any other destructive or deadly “ism.”   The readers give us the nominees in the comment section, and I put them in a poll on the last day of the month.  Then, we have some democracy and see who wins.

So, get to it, and drop your nominees in the comment section.

This month’s Useful Idiot of the Month Nomination Thread is brought to you in part by Amazon. You can support the CH 2.0 with your Amazon purchases!


Useful Idiot of the Month Nomination Thread: April 2013


useful idiots 3

Wow, where did April go?  Seems just yesterday that we were nominating useful idiots for March.  Well, time warp or not, it’s time to nominate the useful idiots that will appear on this month’s poll.  What’s a useful idiot, you ask? Welll, a useful idiot is person that assists on promoting Marxism in a target country,  They are used to wreck the target country to the point the Communists can take over.  Then, ironically, the Marxists that come to power then usual eliminate the useful idiots.  In other words, your standard leftist, who is usually a misguided Occupod, will help destabilize the US.  Then, when the Communists come to power, they will kill the useful idiots.  Why?  They know too much.  And, when the get to see what social justice looks like in actual practice, they will revolt again their new masters.

Anyway, this is what we do.  The last two days  of the month, we have a poll to see who contributed the most to the Marxist cause.  However, we need nominees to populate the poll. That is where you come in.  It is up to you to select the useful idiots!  So, if you have a fitting nominee, drop it in the comment section.

Ready, set, go!


Fascist Friday: Belafonte Goes True Marxist, Recommends That Obama Imprison Dissenters


Um, I said last night that if you leave leftists to their own devises long enough, they reveal their true nature.  And, what if Harry Belafonte suggests that Obama imprison dissenters?  Take a look at this video, via Gateway Pundit…

Third world dictator?  Well, if we follow the path of Obama and the left, we may one day end up in that situation, being a third world hell hole.

Of course, it’ll be someone else’s fault.


Who Says Wealth Redistribution Doesn’t Work? The Government, That’s Who


American progressives, those way left of center statist like Obama, are forever pushing the Marxisy meme of the need to redistribute the wealth from those that produce it to those that didn’t produce it. Their goal, of course, is to bring about a utopia of equality of results.

Our Marxist president once said, long before he was president, that Supreme Court judges had not done enough to bring about wealth redistribution. This same Marxist president has said that at some point, the rich have earned enough and they need to give some of their wealth back. Back to whom? Whom, we later learn are those that provided the roads and bridges and police forces and fire protection services that made it possible for those that built businesses to build them. Our Marxist president has become famous for the words: “If you got a business, you didn’t build that. Someone else made that happen.” He was referring to the roads and bridges, and etc. What our Marxist president doesn’t tell the people is who did pay for those things. If he were pressed, he would have to admit that all taxes that governments use to provide services like roads and bridges and police and fire protection come from the only generators of wealth; businesses. They pay taxes and their employees pay taxes, without which, governments would have no funds to provide any services or to pay their employees. Wealth redistribution does not make society as a whole better off. It reduces future wealth creation from what otherwise would be.

Nothing that I said above is new to you. We conservatives have reported these truths to anyone who would listen for a very long time. Yet, our politicians, like our Marxist president, pretend they don’t know basic economics 101. But, they are lying. Their own number crunchers know that redistributing the wealth does not, for example, reduce poverty. Ten days ago I came across this revealing article that quoted  from an Adam Smith Institute  (ASI) article, which I found  at Motor City Times.  This is the full quote that Steve at Motor City Times used:

Now, I think it should be obvious to everyone that giving poor people a means to purchase food means that poor people are less poor. We would also assume that some who were poor before this distribution are not poor after it.

But here’s the interesting question. Fully 0.5% of GDP is being given to the poor in just this one redistribution programme. What difference does this make to the number of poor in the US?

The answer is, distressingly, absolutely not one iota. By the official statistics this redistribution does not lift one solitary person up out of poverty: in fact, does not even alleviate poverty in any way recorded by the official statistics. Further, this is true of all of the major US poverty alleviation programmes. Their Section 8 housing vouchers (roughly, housing benefit), Medicaid (health care for the poor), the EITC (working tax credits). Adding these together the US spends a good 4% or more of GDP on poverty alleviation. Yet apparently it alleviates no poverty at all.

So, dear readers, it is not that our Marxist president and his friends don’t know the truth. It is that they chose to ignore the truth that their own number crunchers give them. What the uninformed voters need to know is that their Marxist president does not care one iota about the poor. He and his ilk are only interested in making more people dependent on government and, there by, consolidate their power over all Americans.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Jay-Z Almost Realizes That Occupy is Marxist


Rapper Jay-Z seems to be getting that something isn’t quite right with the Occupy Movement, though he still hasn’t connected all the dots.  The Blaze has more…

“What’s the thing on the wall, what are you fighting for?” Jay-Z said in a recent New York Times magazine interview.

“I’m not going to a park and picnic, I have no idea what to do, I don’t know what the fight is about. What do we want, do you know?” he said he asked rap magnate Russel Simmons.

His questions for the anti-corporate movement continued:

I think all those things need to really declare themselves a bit more clearly. Because when you just say that ‘the 1 percent is that,’ that’s not true. Yeah, the 1 percent that’s robbing people, and deceiving people, these fixed mortgages and all these things, and then taking their home away from them, that’s criminal, that’s bad. Not being an entrepreneur.

“This is free enterprise. This is what America is built on,” he added, defending those who, he thinks, create wealth and success legitimately.

Alrighty then, is Jay-Z is upset that the movement to which he stated support, is targeting everyone that has been successful?  Is he realizing that they are a pack of Marxists that would do him in, right along with the evil bankers (that were following what the government told them to do)?  It’s hard to tell, and while the author at The Blaze doubts it, it is quite possible that Jay-Z is beginning to realize that the monster that would eat the bankers would devour him as well.

To Jay-Z, I can only say that I respect your success, and would do nothing to take it from you.  Occupy, however, are avowed Marxists, and if they succeed, it won’t matter what you’ve done for them, you are wealthy, and that means that you have to go.  Success is inherently evil to the occupods, and terribly unfair.  Your wealth will be taken, and if you’re lucky, they’ll let you live.

Hopefully, Jay-Z realizes this, before he discovers the fate of the useful idiots.


Occupy Unmasked” Apparently, OWS Does NOT Want This Film Released


Here is a sneak peek at the upcoming movie “Occupy Unmasked.”

Here is the official trailer…

You can tell the potential power of something based on the death threats that the producers are receiving.  Apparently, there are some people out there that don’t want you seeing this film.  Since controlling information is part of the Marxist agenda, that should not come as a surprise.

An Open Letter to PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, and Kraft Foods


Apparently, the small but noisy Marxist groups are causing gigantic corporations to change their policies, yet again.  For the details of the latest meaningless capitulation, here is an excerpt from NPR.

Two of America’s best-known companies, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, have dropped their memberships in the American Legislative Exchange Council, a low-profile conservative organization behind the national proliferation of “stand your ground” gun laws.

Coca-Cola’s announcement came hours after a civil rights group,, launched an online drive calling on Coca-Cola to stop underwriting the ALEC agenda on voter ID laws in several states.

It’s part of a much broader campaign to spotlight companies that sell products to a public that might object to hard-line conservative policies such as stand your ground laws or requirements that voters show a photo ID at the polls.

Mind you, that Color of Change was founded by avowed Marxist, Van Jones.  It is not a civil rights organization, it is a Marxist pressure group.

Also, this is one of the newer methods of the left.  Since they haven’t been able to get talk radio banned, or FOX News off the air, or bloggers muzzled, they are now trying to impact the funding of Conservative organizations, intimidating the advertisers of talk shows, or even FOX.

So, if I were to communicate to any of these companies, I would say the following…

It has come to my attention that you have decided to stop donations to the American Legislative Exchange Council.  This is a rather disappointing development, as you seem to have made this decision on a false pretense.   Based on the groups claiming victory in this situation, it  appears that you have been duped by a very small, but highly organized, number of community organizers.  These organizations represent the tiniest fraction of the US population, but are very good at making themselves appear to be far more larger and influential than they really are.  

On the contrary, Conservatives have been estimated by three years of Gallup polls as representing 40% of the US population.  And while Conservatives rarely call for boycotts, they do vote with their feet.  One recent example was Carbonite, the online backup company, and former Rush Limbaugh advertiser.  Within a week of ending their advertising on the Limbaugh program, their stock plummeted, and they lost many customers.  Another example is the Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  They initially cut, and then restored funding to the abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.  Many of the same organizations that contacted you were also involved in the decisions by Carbonite, as well as Komen. Here are the results of the Komen decision…

You no doubt remember that controversy: Komen decided to stop funding Planned Parenthood, the Left erupted in rage, Komen backed down. Victory for the liberal feminist movement! …And how does victory look now?


Reuters : “Komen said it had had problems meeting targets in about half of the five fundraising events it has staged since the blowup. One in Lafayette, Louisiana, raised less than $400,000, below its $500,000 goal, and another, to be held in Fort Worth, Texas, is also struggling.”

News4Jax : “The Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization is failing to meet its fundraising targets after the charity decided to cut and then later restore funding for Planned Parenthood, a leading provider of birth control and sexual health care.*”

NWCN : “Eastern Washington’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is less than three weeks away, but so far, registration and fundraising numbers are down. Organizers think the drop in support is likely related, at least in part, to the national debate between Komen and Planned Parenthood.”

As you can see, we do not organize large boycotts, but we do watch where we put our money on an individual basis.  If the organizations to whom you recently capitulated were as large and influential as they claimed to be, they could have replaced the funding lost by Komen, or sign up a significant number of new customers for Carbonite.  However, that has not occurred. 

In the end, do you want to potentially alienate 40% of the US population in order to get a few small Marxist organizations off your backs?  I don’t think I need to explain the definition of a Pyrrhic victory, but these decisions, once made public, might reflect in your sales.  

At any rate, that’s what I would say to them.  I don’t intend to contact these companies, but I will vote with my wallet.  It isn’t a question of  pressuring people into doing what I want them to do, but it’s a question of conscience.  There are some companies from which I will never purchase a single thing.  I see no need to name them, as it is a private decision.  That, and I’m not a fascist, unlike some other individuals or organizations.


Mark Oxner is Running Against Alan Grayson: He’s Going to Need Some Help


Who is Mark Oxner, you ask?  Well, he’s running against none other than former Democratic Marxist Congressman Alan Grayson Shrek.  Grayson’s constituents sent him packing in 2010, but redistricting has given him a new hope.  Here is a rather creative campaign ad from Mr. Oxner…

Running against Grayson, Oxner will be exposed to a never ending stream of lies, exaggerations, and out right fabrications.  So, visit his site, and help if you can.  Our good friend, King Shamus, commented on the situation thusly…

Besides Mark Oxner is running against none other than Alan Grayson. Grayson is such a left-wing hammer head that he got booted out of the House in 2010. But since the prick just won’t take a hint, he’s decided to run in Florida’s new district. Wouldn’t it be lovely to send this massive progtard packing twice within two election cycles?

I’m already starting to get a massive schadenfreude overdose just thinking about it.



And the Moonbattery Just Keeps on Coming: Occupy Wall Street Attendees Keep Proving their Own Useful Idiocy


It seems to me that the Occupy Wall Street protests across the country are nothing more than a Conservative Blogger Material Drive…a “stimulus,” if you will.  The more they speak out, the more people get to see what they are all about.  And, let’s just say, that what they are all about is NOT representative of the 99% of the population for which they claim to stand.  For yet another example, here is a video from GBTV…


So, as we can see, the more videos that come out, the more we see that this movement is exactly what we said it is-a collection of Marxists, and other leftist freaks.  That, and some of them still haven’t figured out why they are there.   So, my plan is simple.  I’m going to keep on exposing it, and showing folks what it is.  They still haven’t figured out that the alternative media has power.  So, they are going to engage in their moonbattery, and the whole world will be watching, and retching.

Frankly, this is going to be a lot of fun.


Your Tax Dollars Funding Marxist Indoctrination: American Flag is Racist


We’ve all talked about Marxist professors before.  It’s pretty well documented that most of our universities are home to untold numbers of Marxists.  However, since the technology allows it, and the Marxists operate in plain site, it’s becoming rather easy to expose them.  Case in point, these videos from Big Government…

I have to ask anyone that is visiting this blog for the first time, does this video represent what this country stands for?  Does these ideas fit a free country, or do they fit a dictatorship?  Is this extremism?  These are questions that we all have to ask, and we also need to ask our friends and family the same thing.

These people have the right to believe and state whatever they want.  Unlike the “progressives,” we have no desire to silence anyone.  However, we must be aware that they will silence anyone that they can.  They have engaged in violence to forward their goals, and will again.  And, with history as our teacher, Communism killed upwards of 100,000,000 people in the last century.  Since Communism is a system that relies on complete and total control of the populace, it is safe to assume that the butchery will continue in the current century as well.

Remember this from the 60-70’s, regarding Obama associate William Ayers?

That’s what Communism does. It is it’s nature.

And those people want to do it here.


CH 2.0 Video: Wealth Creation 101


Right Hand Man made me aware of this very good video clip about wealth creation.  I watched it and found it to be outstanding.  If you have about 10 minutes it is worth the watch.

So the next time you hear a progressive/Marxist or even a Democrat bashing our free market system and making the claim that capitalism has failed us direct them to this video. They might actually learn something. They may actually wake up and wipe the progressive sleep from their eyes and see things in a different light. Or they may not.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

Talkin’ and Bloggin’ and Waitin’ and Fearin’…


This title may remind you of a song by Dusty Springfield “Wishin’ and hopin’ and thinkin’ and prayin’…” In that song Dusty talks about how to get the love of a man. It is a great song and when I hear it I reminded by how we are going about the rebirth of America all wrong. Dusty’s song is filled with action. Our song is filled with whining.

Then only action these days is coming from the Tea Party and a few brave Military men who are risking personal peril for saying they don’t recognize Obama’s right to be president or commander in chief. Another serviceman is “Facebooking” at the risk of being punished by the military. Outside of these examples I really don’t hear of anything that is being done. Everyone knows what needs doing but no one wants to say it. Just these words are enough to scare most people off of this blog and I haven’t said anything yet. I’m just talkin’ and bloggin’ and waitin’…

The reason for this is because what we are doing as a people and as a society is “Fearin’”. We have to contend with “Political Correctness” which is just another way of saying that you should think and feel certain things and if you do you should never speak them. Well, I happen to think that Obama is a “Racist” and that what he promotes is a racist agenda. I refuse to be the slave of “Fearin’”. Obama had barely wrinkled the sheets on the Whitehouse bed when he accused a “White” officer of being stupid and that “without the facts”. The church he attended for 20+ years is clearly racist. These words are from their website (the Trinity United Church of Christand are part of the “Black Value System”:

9. Pledge to Make the Fruits of All Developing and Acquired Skills Available to the Black Community.

10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions.

11. Pledge Allegiance to All Black Leadership Who Espouse and Embrace the Black Value System.

12. Personal Commitment to Embracement of the Black Value System. To measure the worth and validity of all activity in terms of positive contributions to the general welfare of the Black Community and the Advancement of Black People towards freedom.

Never have I seen so many uses of the word “Black”; black people, black leaders, black business, black community, black values, black institutions…etc. There is so much Black here there is no room for anything but Black. This is only one reason why I think Obama is a racist. I also believe his politics are largely designed to take from “Whites” and give to the Blacks. This may or may not be Politically correct speech but I think it is true. Redistribution of the wealth is more likely to benefit Blacks in America than whites. Just talkin’ and bloggin’ here…

I also believe Obama is a Dictator. Everything I can find on the man shows that he will not be assuaged by anyone and must have his own way on everything. You cannot disagree with him as you will be excluded: He has excluded republicans, conservatives, tea party protestors, reporters and TV networks, and etc. So often the man is rude to those asking him questions. He will bore them, talk over them, become effusive, and deny them. He is like a spoiled child in the Presidency. What the hell were we thinking to elect this emotionally underdeveloped person? To make it worse he had “No, None, Nada, Zip” experience. Excuse me I just had an attack of ???????

So here we find ourselves in the “Fearin’” stage. Actually we have be afraid the whole time but now were afraid of our own fears. We are afraid that we made a big mistake. We fear that November cannot come soon enough. We fear being found out that we believe that our country has been seized by a communist, racist, fascist, community organizing dictator who will destroy all hope of America as we have known it. We have spoken in hush tones and behind closed doors until now we are growing louder and coming out into the public realm and saying “Throw the Bum Out”.

Now if you have made it this far on this blog you are a seeker, a believer, a patriot, or a spy. To all of you I say that we have not come this far to be defeated by fear. In the 60’s Arlo Guthrie wanted all of America to stand up and sing a chorus of “Alice’s Restaurant”. Arlo was anti-war but his point that if the people unite and all stand at once they are unstoppable. India’s, Mahatma Gandhi proved this very thing. Read these words from him:

We believe that it is the inalienable right of the Indian people, as of any other people, to have freedom and to enjoy the fruits of their toil and have the necessities of life, so that they may have full opportunities of growth. We believe also that if any government deprives a people of these rights and oppresses them the people have a further right to alter it or abolish it.

Sound familiar? These people marched unarmed against British marksmen who fired on them briefly before coming to their senses and refusing to fire on and unarmed people. On other occasions the British beat the Indians with clubs until the soldiers themselves became exhausted and ceased the beatings. And what is it that we have to fear? The American Military? I think not. The police? Perhaps a few. Obama? Not at all. If we march in sufficient numbers not even equally a majority but purely a dedicated, single-minded, group none could deafeat or dissuade us. Surely America awaits her rescuers. It is true that Gandhi was arrested and imprisoned. In fact he was imprisoned so often that he called the prisons “Her Majesty’s Hotels”. Today we seem to be lacking our Gandhi but I know he or she is out there. Ultimately Gandhi and his movement won only to result in his assassination. Will someone sound the trumpet.

Now I have not even mentioned Obama’s pro-Muslim, anti-Israel approach. This has already become too much talk and not enough action.

America hear me! We have no time for Talkin’ and Bloggin’ and Waitin’ and Fearin’… Obama is “Marchin”.


Czar Wars: Pay Czar Thinks No One Should Receive More Than 500,000 In Pay-Is This Just the Beginning?


While I’m  reasonably certain that Feinberg is referring to companies that received TARP monies, it becomes a huge concern when one considers a few other options:

  • The POTUS has been recorded stating that he is interested in “re-distributive justice.”
  • The left believes in a “social minimum.”
  • The left has been very busy trying to blame capitalism and corporate greed for the current fiscal crisis.  (Ironic, considering that their policies are directly responsible.)
  • The “Manufacturing Czar,” Ron Bloom, states that the “free market is nonsense.”

  • The left, the “Czars,” and the media have all trumpeted and applauded the call to redistribute wealth.
  • The left seems to be set on creating more dependency on the Federal Government.

I can go one and on, but I think this gives you a bit of an idea of what our “progressive” leadership wants.   The POTUS has appointed avowed Marxists (or STRONGLY left-leaning) individuals to positions of power, while at the same time, trying to talk as if he were a moderate.  This would seem to suggest that he wants to forward a Marxist agenda, and he is appointing people to do it for him.  Obama, of course, tries to portray himself as a centrist, and creates the appearance that he is above the fray.

Here is an auto-generated transcript of an interview from FOX News.  Neil Cavuto from FOX Business talked with Kenneth Feinberg regarding the $500,000 maximum.  The video is here.  Unfortunately, FOX seems to no longer make embed codes available.  Note that the auto transcript is not the best, but it does show that the intent of the “Pay Czar.”

” Here’s what I’ve said publicly in my pay determination it’s nobody. Should receive more than a base cash salary of 500000. Dollars maximum. Now — it may be exceptions. In certain cases but that is sort of the figured that is the bench — then. If you want to get additional compensation beyond that that’s all right. It may be over and but it’ll be burned in the form of stock. Which you will — as an executive in the top 25 of each of these companies. And you — redeem that stock for 2345. Years that way. You — overall compensation. Is gonna be tied to the few — Fortunes of the company you work for all and — performance and its performance — joined at the hip and that’s the way it should be.”

So, why care if the “Pay Czar” is going to soak some rich bankers?  (Besides the fact that it’s unconstitutional.) I think this is only the beginning.  As Obama’s policies either stop the economy from recovering, or even make it worse, there will be increasing calls for government assistance.  As a response, the government will offer more and more “recovery” programs to “fix” what they have broken.  As with any government “assistance,” it will come with strings attached. When you put together the rhetoric and the actions, I think it’s safe to assume that they left would like to extend this level of control.  Over time, they would expand it bit by bit-piece by piece, until most of us would be working under a mandated wage.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see where this might lead.  In the end, we always have to remember that the left operates through incrementalism.  They go step-by-step, piece by piece, until the end-goal is achieved.  This might very well be another step in that direction.


ACORN: Nuts Are Busted Again


Oh ACORN, those nutty libs that do all the fraudulent voter registrations and general thuggery for the messiah, are in ever more hot water!

At issue is the allegations, in over a dozen states now, the ACORN workers are allegedly told that they have to collect a quota of new voter registrations per day, or be fired! Here’s how a spokesman for ACORN tried to wiggle his way off the hook with Glenn Beck.

As we are finding out now, there are tens of thousands (a gross underestimate, I know) of fake voter registrations out there that have to see sorted out and discarded.  I wonder, and this is my conjecture, how many times did some of these “fake” people vote?  Here’s some more vids.

ACORN doesn’t pay it’s workers for campaigning for a specific Demonrat candidate, but they’re nonpartisan!

Here’s the latest.  In Pittsburgh, four suspects are being held for trial for, you guessed it…. voter registration fraud!  This from the Post Gazette.

Four people today were ordered to stand trial on charges they submitted fraudulent voter registration forms during an election drive last year.

One of the four, Eric Lee Jones, 20, waived his right to a hearing today.

District Judge Gene Ricciardi presided over separate hearings for the others, Ashley Clarke, 21, Mario Grisom, 28, and Latasha Kinney, 27.

Three other suspects previously were ordered to trial after preliminary hearings.

Their charges include forgery and impersonation involved with 51 counts among the group of suspects.

The seven all worked for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, which is among a number of groups that sponsored voter registration drives in preparation for last year’s presidential election.

This has happened so many times now.  But the reaction from the Legion of Doom is this…

Legion of Doom: WOOOOOOW the messiah is soooo kool, like, didn’t ya loooove his speech in Egypt where he suddenly became Muslim and threw Israel under the bus?  KOOOOOOOL!

So, here’s the part of the article that made me chuckle.

Allegheny County police detectives who investigated and questioned the suspects said they claimed to have been under pressure to register 20 new voters a day to be paid the $8-an-hour wages.

Most of the suspects remain free on nominal bond, pending trial. Two others were being held in the county jail on unrelated charges.

OK, typical “we’ll pay you if you get so many registrations…”  No surprises there, especially for an organization that seems to do it EVERYWHERE!  But, it’s not their policy. Of course it’s not.


Now for the real chuckle.  Some of the alleged criminals are being held for other warrants!  Where does ACORN get these people?  Oh wait, I have an explanation for that too.

“…makes great workers…” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  I guess if you plan to commit FRAUD, people convicted of FRAUD would be great candidates for employment!

When I get to it, I’ll give a much more detailed description of what I think ACORN is really up to.

Did I mention that ACORN is helping  out with the Census?  So, when you give your personal information to an ACORN worker, is there a chance that your identity will get stolen?  Won’t you be surprised when “Mickey Mouse” and “Donald Duck” turn out to be your neighbors?


How ya likin’ that change?
