Why Obama Won’t Compromise

This is a simple question to answer. He has already compromised the bill by giving in and delaying company participation, allowing Congress to stay out, and many others. The problem is that his compromises are with himself, they are all done illegally, and without anyone else’s approval.

All I hear is how bad Congress is by sending all these useless bills before the Senate knowing full well the Senate will not approve them. What Congress is doing is representing the people. The last history lesson I took while they still taught history was that Congressmen represent the people.

I did some math today and calculated that each congressman represents about 703,709 people. The bill they passed to defund the ACA passed 231 to 192. My math says they are speaking for 162,556,779 people. That number of constituents is 54.6% of the total populace. I’d say they are doing a fine damn job of speaking for us. The problem is that the President and the Senate know better what is good for us than we do.

We have one option; vote them out. We all have one vote but we also have feet and a voice. If we walk our neighborhoods knocking on doors to talk to our neighbors with facts we will magnify our voting effect.

If the government shuts down those workers forced to stay at home may get to know what it feels like to lose a job like the 11.3 million private sector workers who are still unemployed. Unfortunately, that is a bad example because the government people will resume working when they resolve the funding bill, and those who have to work without pay will receive back pay.

While we struggle to kill a bad law Great Britain implements new rules allowing people to buy health care they cannot get in their government system. Could it be we are right and Obama and his socialist Democrat Senate are all wrong?

The Goal Was Not To Lose

My latest book is not fiction, it is history. Specifically, Revolutionary Summer deals with the short period of May through September of 1776. Joseph Ellis does a remarkable job of chronicling the people and the events leading to America’s independence from Great Britain. One thing that impressed me is the significant role played by John Adams in orchestrating the separation of the American Colonies from the British Empire. Most of us like to believe that Thomas Jefferson was the primary author of the Declaration of Independence, but it was John Adams who master minded the Declaration and Jefferson who translated Adams ideas into words. There is a wonderful movie covering this same subject called “1776.”

This story depicts the difficult task ahead of George Washington as he leads the Continental Army, a band of amateurs, against the élite and experienced British military. Washington makes a critical mistake at the beginning of the war when he encamped his entire army on Manhattan Island in New York. The British fleet arrives with thirty thousand men, and also lands on the island. The armada of ships loaded with firepower and supplies lay just off the shore ready on a moments notice to move to where ever they would be needed.

Washington’s biggest task is to avoid being annihilated, and/or captured. He wrestles with losing his honor and that of his army because he knows the practical thing to do is to retreat from the island to the mainland.

I saw similarities to 1776 and 2013 while reading this story. An unorganized, untrained, poorly armed band of zealots stand-off against the world’s most powerful country. In my mind I see a band of Tea Party Patriots and Militias standing tall against the world’s largest, strongest , and richest country. Maybe it won’t happen in my lifetime, but we are on a track to having to stand up for what we believe. Our first line of attack is through the ballot box knowing that if that does not work, the next step will be . . .

Here are the 25 Senate cave in RINO’s who voted to allow Harry Reid (D-NV) and the Democrats to fund Obamacare today

The Insanity of Passing a Bill To Know What Is In It

In March of 2010,  Democrat Representative Nancy Pelosi from California said this; “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Here we are four years later after stupidly passing the bill, and we still don’t really know what is in it.

I have a few criticisms of the Affordable Care Act bill. First is the lack of leadership displayed by the President to implement the Bill. As Chief Engineer for a major private sector company for over thirty years it was my responsibility to carry out many high dollar projects. I know the value of a good project manager. Obama does not have one. By the way, who is responsible for implementing the new health care system? It took us ten years to put a man on the moon, and we started way behind the point of where the health care system is today. In my mind the ACA project manager is a complete and total failure, as is his boss. The best I could find on the PM is the CHS is responsible for hiring Project Managers to implement exchanges. After three years and six months don’t you think there would be someone in charge who knows what the heck is going on?

A second criticism I have of the ACA is the level of taxing that has gone on since its inception. By now there is enough money in the coffers to pay off the sixteen trillion-dollar national debt. My guess is the ACA till is empty. No liberal in his right mind will allow money to accumulate for anything. Money is for spending which Democrats do very well.

The third problem I have with this bill is the way the Senate changed the rules to pass it. Shouldn’t a bill of such major consequences would need a two-thirds majority vote to pass?

100326--Taxery0014

Yesterday, after the Senate again pulled a sneaky maneuver called cloture to allow members to vote for defunding Obama Care. Actually, all they voted for was to end the debate and to take a vote. The vote to defund Obama Care won, but it isn’t really a bill. Within five minutes, The Majority Leader stripped the defund Obama Care language from the draft and they voted again to keep the government running and to fund Obama Care. This time the bill passed. Do you see the irony in this trick? Pass a cloture that says defund Obama Care. This gives a Senator a cover to brag to constituents that he voted to defund Obama Care. Yet, not ten minutes later the same bastard votes to fund Obama Care. The vote he will use to campaign on is the cloture vote. He will never mention his vote on the actual bill to defund ACA.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

cloture |ˈklōCHər|

noun

(in a legislative assembly) a procedure for ending a debate and taking a vote: [ as modifier ] : a cloture motion.

ORIGIN late 19th cent.: from French clôture, from Old Frenchclosure (see closure) .

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

After the vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made a comment directed at me, and people like me.

“Obama Care has been the law for four years. Why don’t they get a life and talk about something else? Reid said at a press conference after the Senate passed a short-term resolution to fund the government and fund Obamacare.”

Well Harry, we are still trying to learn what the hell the ACA is. What little we do know is not very good. So far, we know it is destroying jobs, and killing the economy, which is just what smart Senators like you want American citizens to endure.  What we want is a complete repeal and a do over. Of course that will not satisfy the liberal mind. Liberals will insist that the mysterious ACA remain law until planet earth collides with the sun. ACA will become the same rock solid bureaucracy like the EPA, DHS, DEd, DAg, and the remaining useless agencies sucking money out of the few of us who still believe in working for a living. God forbid a Senator should recognize an error and make it right.

My conclusion is this: Democrats think the American people are a bunch of illiterate drooling nerds who need spoon feeding through the bars of their cages. What I think is that all Democrat Senators, Congressmen, and the Democrat President must be dumped into a vat of tar,  feathered, and made to kneel before the country and publicly apologize for being complete assholes.

Harry Reid, Obama, and Nancy would like to believe the Tea Party is dead. Currently, the Tea Party is quiet, but not dead despite Obama Administration efforts to block them.  The Tea Party grows in strength while strategizing the Conservative resurrection of America.

In conclusion, voting for a bill to learn what is in it does not border on insanity, it is insane. Since the liberals in government had such strong backing to make the ACA happen, I can only conclude that the liberal side of the country suffers from severe mental deficiency.

Cars, Cars, Cars, and More Cars

This has been an awful summer for me. The 2013 Monet Vision escaped being photographed, Peggy and I did not leave home for anything,, and I failed to visit a single Cruise Night in Frankfort. Maybe it was latent grief creeping out on the tenth anniversary of Barb’s death, or maybe it was a lower back pain that wouldn’t quit, or maybe learning that I suffer from Low T, or maybe it is simply because I reached middle age, whatever, the summer blues took over my mind and body.

Today, a good friend sent me a video link, that cheered me and picked me up beyond my expectations. I only wish he could have done it earlier, like in June. The video features a very large car show in Minnesota, touted as the largest in the world. The cars are amazing and beautiful. If you grew up in the fifties like I did, this video was like traveling back in time. Take a peek and enjoy these mobile works of art.

Top Ten Low Pass Flybys

English: San Francisco, Calif. (Oct. 9, 2005) – The Navy’s Flight Demonstration team, the Blue Angels lead solo, performs the sneak pass, a maneuver that demonstrates the F/A-18 Hornet’s ability to sneak into a target area undetected at speeds approaching 700 mph. The Blue Angels perform more than 70 shows at 34 different locations throughout the country each year.

I love it when military pilots play games with our equipment. Watch this video to see some daring and exciting flying stunts.

 

###################################################################

 

We all remember Tom Cruise in the Movie ” TOP GUN” when he makes a low pass

near the control tower and causes an officer to spill coffee down his shirt.

Well here are short clips of the top 10 low pass flybys ever filmed … and

of course for nostalgia, let’s see that Top Gun low pass again.

 

Pay particular attention to the last shown low pass. It is number one. Watch

the halo of water around the plane. It happened during a Blue Angels event

over San Francisco several years ago. It was the pilot’s last show with the

team and he had nothing to lose.

 

Many of the boats in the bay lost windows to the sonic blast. It’s a kick to watch.

 

Number 3 was pretty impressive too.

Ashamed of Their Country

Grumpa Joe intended this blog site as a place where he would post his work exclusively; He would share with readers the wisdom of his years. For the most part about half of what he posts is original stuff and the other half comes from contributions from friends on subjects that touch his nerves. When he does post a contribution he adds words of his own to give a rationale.

Today, he has a piece from a Dorothy, a friend he knows from the company they worked for. She and he were at different ends of the building but they made enough contact to become friends. She worked in Carpet Land, and he worked in the trenches. Whenever he got called to see the Boss, she was the one who announced his presence. After many years of retirement they somehow hooked up again via the blogosphere. Dorothy sends him really good stuff regularly. Today, she got him going with this little known piece of news that didn’t really make the news. This is the kind of stuff that gets his juices flowing.

First is her contribution, second will be Joe’s thoughts on why this happened.

Whattheh

George Washington statue is hidden at the MLK rally in Columbia, SC

The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia, SC had an interesting twist this year. 

The event is held on the North side steps of the statehouse.

Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington.

This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the father of our country from view so that participants would 

Not be ‘offended’ by his presence.

I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this picture of the MLK Day rally in Columbia, South Carolina. 

This rally was sponsored by the NAACP, and they said that they covered the statue because they “didn’t want to offend anyone.”

Really? George Washington is the father of this nation. How is he offensive to anyone?

Can you imagine what would happen if we covered the statue of Dr. Martin L. King on President’s Day? Or, is only the statue of a ‘white guy’ offensive??

Of course, this display of anti-Americanism wasn’t covered at all by the national media (surprise, surprise!!), and the local paper in Columbia only ran a short piece on it. It has been covered a little by the blog-world, but I think the word needs to get out to the general public that this is what the NAACP is all about…militant and (most definitely) racist.

Snopes gave it a Green dot with a red circle around it, meaning the article above is a mixture of truth. Actually, it is true but not complete.

FW: Father of Our Country Boxed Away

The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.

Analysis: I haven’t (yet) been able to determine precisely who took the above snapshot, but eyewitness accounts and other photos of the Jan. 17, 2011 event confirm that it’s authentic.

As stated above, the occasion was the NAACP’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day rally at the state house in Columbia, South Carolina. The participants’ view of the statue of George Washington that stands in front of the capitol building was indeed obstructed by a three-sided wooden box during the ceremonies, a measure which has been roundly criticized by right-leaning political bloggers as disrespectful of the nation’s first President.

Whereas the forwarded text asserts that the organizers of the event sought to “conceal” the statue of Washington “so that participants would not be offended by his presence,” an NAACP spokesperson offered a different explanation, as reportedby John O’Connor in the Jan. 18 edition of The State:

A three-sided structure that covered the front and sides of the statue was intended to display a rally graphic and serve as a photo-and-television backdrop for the event’s speakers, said S.C. NAACP executive director Dwight James. However, the graphic was not finished before the rally and could not be put in place.Photos from the event showed a three-sided box with Washington’s statue visible only from behind the stage. “What we had constructed was a background with a graphic to be placed on it,” James said. “We weren’t trying to obstruct anything.”

The State reported that the statue has been similarly covered at MLK Day events going back at least four years, though most groups holding rallies at the state house leave it unobstructed.

*******************************************************

Grumpa Joe tried researching for articles from the last four years but could not find anything. His hopes were to find another photo from another year to prove the validity of the claim that they have been covering statues at their events. He was unsuccessful.

Here is Joe’s take on why they covered George. Even though George Washington played a huge role in kick starting America into existence he owned slaves. Most of the NAACP people Joe has heard speaking resent the Founding Fathers who endorsed the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the BIll of rights, and consider them all hypocrites. They wrote “All men are created equal . . .” yet never included blacks in the conversation. It wasn’t until Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation that they became free men. Our government has worked diligently to pass laws to correct the imbalance between blacks and whites, but  have been largely unsuccessful. There is still racial division today, and our first black President is the main perpetrator of racial division. He uses race at every chance to his advantage. Meanwhile, even though the Founders blacks out of the original documents in favor of establishing a country which ultimately advances the black cause and has raised their level of wealth, and education to above the level of blacks anywhere else on earth they refuse to budge from dependence to self-responsibility.

The root cause is slavery. The blacks have been spoon fed by liberals that whites owe them something to make up for the sins committed by the ancestors who did own slaves. Joe’s take on this is “Get over it.” Many countries lived with slaves going back to ancient Rome and further. Eventually, slaves were freed and assimilated into civilization. Every European country had a system of feudal serfs. Serfs were freemen but belonged to the estate on which they worked. They lived free but were required to work the fields of the Lord, while slaves were told exactly what to do and how. Slaves were property, Serfs were not. Serfs could leave an estate at anytime, but because of the feudal system they could only get work on another estate as a serf. Either way, the life of a slave and the life of a serf were pretty darn close.

Yet, many serfs fled European countries to become freemen. We do not hear white immigrant descendents of European Serfs slamming their government, nor claiming restitution for years past. They are happy enough as free men to work within the system. U.S.A. Blacks are several generations removed from slavery, yet they persist in receiving back pay. Haven’t we paid enough in the past 148 years?

Blacks want us to love them and treat them equally. The country has made great inroads to doing that in the past fifty years. Laws favor blacks over whites in many cases. They have served well to lift blacks to make them more equal. In some cases they have an edge over whites. Compare white-workers to black-workers in government jobs. Blacks often have union people assigned as Discrimination Officers. They function to resolve any grievance by a black regarded as discriminatory against him in the favor of the black. Here in Illinois we had a State Mental health Center. In the beginning, it was heavily staffed with whites. With the equal opportunity laws employment swung toward blacks and the State made sure they would not be held for discrimination. As time went on, the blacks outnumbered the white by a ratio of two or three to one. Yet, the Discrimination Officer remained. Blacks discriminated whites daily, but the Discrimination Officer slept in his office waiting for a black to walk in with a claim. Black workers took advantage of white workers every chance they got. For example, telephone operators worked three shifts. The blacks had a system in play. Whenever an operator was going to call in sick to take the day off she would alert the others not to answer their phones at home. That way the supervisor who was calling around for a replacement would not find anyone. The supervisor then “mandated” the worker still at work, to work the next shift. Most of the times the worker mandated was white. In my opinion, the State should have been sued for violation of work rules but they never were. They claimed they needed to keep a health care center running at all costs. Isn’t that a form of slavery, i.e. mandating a person to work another eight hours against his will?

Another example. Two telephone operators working side by side, one black, one white. The black sits at her phone chatting with her Avon customers while the board is lighting up with calls. The white works her butt off to answer her calls, and admonishes her partner to pick up her calls or to switch her board over. “Let them wait” was a typical reply. Both workers made the same money, but the white worker had more value per hour than the black. This type of workplace behavior goes on in all government bureaus, both state and federal. Did you ever wonder why the government workers need the SEIU? Because too many blacks would get fired without a Discrimination Officer in place to shout “racism” to a supervisor and throw the place into a panic about a lawsuit.

How can whites love blacks when they surround the whites with such behavior?

Another example, the Farm Bureau has a program to pay farmers who own small farms $50,000/year to make up for the awful way their ancestors were treated on the same land. Most farmers are black and the program intends to help them. I heard an interview with a black farmer in the program who made a really good living on his farm. The interviewer asked him if he felt dishonest taking the money from the Bureau program. “No, I feel it is my place to punish the government for treating my grandfather and his slave ancestors poorly.”

The bible story “The Tower of Babel” from Genesis finds the Lord dividing people and scrambling their language to make it harder for them to reach heaven, yet we mortals strive to do just that, we try over, and over again to build a Utopia that is not worth living in.

New International Version (NIV)

The Tower of Babel

11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.

They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone,and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scatteredthem over the face of the whole earth.

Throughout history there has been a racial divide between people of color. Let’s face it whites don’t like people of color just as people of color don’t like whites. The color shouldn’t matter but it does. The laws force us to treat each other equally, but push the equality toward people of color to the detriment of the whites.

Another example is the Affirmative Action law which requires institutions to give equal consideration to race, color, religion, etc. This one law has resulted in what I call the Dumbing Down of America. Universities and Colleges force themselves to take on black students with lower credentials than whites. The result is many of the blacks come out with degrees they don’t deserve because no University wants to admit they failed a black. Our current President is a prime example of affirmative action. He would never have made it into the schools he did without affirmative action or a lot of money. Universities also discriminate toward foreign students because they pay cash and out-of-state fees. Perhaps Obama came in as a foreign student fully sponsored by a foreign government.

Nonetheless many very capable white students are being left out of prestigious schools because of Affirmative Action. Some of the Phd degreed blacks i see being interviewed on TV are the most left leaning liberals on earth. They could never hold a real job in the private sector so they continued education by playing the system until they got the title of doctor. That gives them the air of superior intelligence. Most of them are out of their league, and expect us to love them because they are smart blacks.

I don’t deny there are some very smart blacks in the country. Favorites like Thomas Sowell,  Econ Professor in California, or Ben Carson, Brain Surgeon, or Mychal Massie, Author, or Hermain Cain, Businessman, or Walter Williams, Economist, or Col. Allen West, Retired Military and Politician are all people I would live next door to and love them like my brother. The real question is would they want to live next to me?
