The Daily Sheeple

Judge Andrew Napolitano has lambasted the government just a day after Thanksgiving.

His article for Fox News accuses the government of lying and cheating US citizens, and demands the return of the rights and liberties ‘stolen’ by the Obama administration.

He goes on to accuse the president of not upholding the Declaration or the Constitution even though he took an oath to do so.

One Nation Under Obama

The Adoration of the Golden Calf'

This is an excellent essay on how Obama is replacing God with government.  It is the Progressive-Communist way.

Obama Wants You To Thank His God – Government
November 26, 2013

Obama keeps trying to rewrite American history. The latest was cutting the words “that this nation under God,” out of the Gettysburg Address, when he read the document in a PBS special.

On November 19, 1863 (in a speech that every schoolboy in the land once memorized by heart), Abraham Lincoln said we should “highly resolve… that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom.” In the expurgated (Obamaburg) version, Lincoln’s words became “that this nation (under no one in particular) shall have a new birth of freedom.”

This has been a consistent pattern throughout his presidency.

In 2010 and 2013, the president edited the Declaration of Independence by omitting the reference to “their Creator.” Thus, Jefferson’s “That all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” became “That each of us are endowed with certain inalienable rights.” When? Where? By whom? The answers might be found in “Dreams of My Marxist, Kenyan Father.”
In 2011, Obama left God out of his Thanksgiving message entirely. On other occasions, God became a bit player with a walk-on part – with “the community” or “those who work in soup kitchens and homeless shelters” in the lead role.

At the University of Indonesia in Jakarta in 2010, Obama told students that our national motto is “e pluribus unum” (out of many, one.). In reality, it’s “In God We Trust.” If the president recited the National Anthem, the last stanza would become, “Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, and this be our motto in unum is our trust.”

In a 2009 press conference in Ankara, Turkey, our national turkey claimed, “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.” In June, 2007, the future president told CBS: “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation – at least, not just.” He went on to explain that America is also “a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Hindu nation and a Buddhist nation.” Why not also Zoroastrian nation, a Baha’i nation and a Wiccan nation?

How many Buddhists were delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787? None – though 51 out of the 55 were members of Christian churches. Did the Mayflower Compact mention the Koran? And the Pilgrims, Puritans, Quakers and pioneers who pushed their way west were inspired by what – the Bhagavad Gita? If you visit the U.S. cemetery in Normandy, see if you can spot a Muslim crescent.

In his Ankara speech, Obama also said Americans “will convey our deep appreciation to the Islamic faith… which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including in my own country.” (The president’s Islamophilia compliments his Christophobia.) The greatest impact Islam had on America was in Midtown Manhattan on September 11, 2001.

Both Obama’s administration and his party are implacably hostile to the faith of our fathers. The Democrats have gone from the party of FDR (whose D-Day prayer asked God to give our soldiers “steadfastness in their faith”) to the party of multicultural pagans and anti-Christian bigots.

A majority of delegates to the 2012 Democratic National Convention tried to drop a passing reference to God from their platform. Sensing a political disaster looming just 10 weeks before the election, Obama ordered his minions to backtrack.

The United States Air Force Academy recently removed God from the cadets’ honor pledge. (Wonder whose idea that was?) The FBI has formed a partnership with the stridently anti-Christian Southern Poverty Law Center, which considers “Christian fundamentalists” as much a threat to our way of life as al-Qaeda.

The Pentagon (under Obama, that little engine of diversity that knows no rest) tried to ban the distribution of Bibles at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and prayers that mention Jesus at Arlington National Cemetery, but reversed course after a Congressional outcry. Overall, it’s no exaggeration to speak of a search and destroy mission against manifestations of faith in the military.

From the repeal of don’t-ask-don’t-tell to support for same-sex marriage to ObamaCare (which would compel religious employers to violate their conscience or the law, by providing contraceptives and abortion services to workers), it’s a far-reaching assault on the Judeo-Christian ethic.

Like the Golden Calf the Children of Israel made while Moses was receiving the law at Sinai, Obama is making a new God for the masses to worship – big government, the Golden Calf state. “Praise Washington from whence all blessings flow. Praise it all peons here below.”

The president’s policies are designed to maximize dependency – government as the source of all blessings.

Under Obama, the food-stamp rolls increased by 33% (to 44.7 million – a record one in seven Americans). The number now receiving Social Security disability payments reached 11 million. (Costs increased from $56 billion in 2000 to $144 billion in 2013.) And total federal spending rose from an average of 21% of GDP under George W. Bush to an average of 24% under Obama.

At the same time, the National Debt grew by more than 70%; the number of working-age Americans with full-time jobs fell from 60.6 million to 58.7 million; the average duration of unemployment increased from 19.8 weeks to 36.6 weeks; median household income declined by $4,000; and 76% of Americans now live from paycheck to paycheck. The State giveth and the State taketh away.

Obama’s God is the God of dependency, the God of redistributionism, and the God who rewards sloth and punishes success. From Caracas to Havana to Pyongyang to Sacramento, it is the God that failed miserably.

ObamaCare won’t just increase health-care costs astronomically and lead to a serious shortage of doctors, but will literally give government the power of God over its citizens. Soon it will determine who qualifies for what treatments, what new technologies and medicines will be developed and which will be left to languish.

Then will come rationing and death panels by another name. That’s the real goal of Obamacare – not cost reduction, not health care for the uninsured, but the power of life and death. Obama’s is a God who demands blood sacrifices.

The creed of Obama-ism is distilled in the president 2011 Thanksgiving message: “As we gather in our communities and in our homes, around the table or near the hearth, we give thanks to each other and to God for the many kindnesses and comforts that grace our lives. Let us pause to recount the simple gifts that sustain us, and resolve to pay them forward in the year to come.” Pay them forward how – with more government programs, greater subsidies and higher taxes?

“Our communities” take precedence over our homes as the focus of our lives. We “give thanks to each other,” first and foremost, and to God almost as an afterthought.

In his 2012 you-didn’t-build-it tirade, Obama wasn’t just bashing the rich (urging Congress to raise taxes on those who earn over $250,000 annually) and telling businessmen that their success came from the collective, so he had a right to plunder them (droll coming from a man who never spent a day of his life in the productive sector), but denying the role of the God of the Bible in the affairs of men.

“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own,” the high priest of spread-the-wealth-around intoned.

“If you were successful, somebody along the way gave you some help.” (Not God but government.) “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in the roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Successful businessmen were mystified. Did “somebody” else risk every penny they had in a new venture? Did somebody else put in 70-hour weeks nurturing a new business like a newborn child? And, by the way, businessmen (the source of most federal revenue) built those roads and bridges with their tax dollars, and paid for the fraud and waste along with construction costs.

But Obama’s rant was as much theological as ideological. Where does God fit in Obama’s worldview? Christians and Jews understand that He plays a crucial part in our lives. If we’re successful, we should thank God.

No, says Obama. Thank your brothers and sisters (the collective) – and me, the voice of divinity on earth. Thank the government that built the roads and bridges and the Internet (with your tax dollars).

Marx called religion “the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.” How different is this, really, from Obama’s 2008 bitter-clinger comment, when (thinking he was speaking off the record) he observed that when people in small towns fall on hard times, “they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them… as a way to explain (make sense of) their frustrations.”

Every totalitarian movement from the Jacobins to the Bolsheviks to the National Socialists saw religion as competition for the loyalty of the people and an obstacle to their agenda. That’s why they invested so heavily in anti-religion campaigns.

Obama is more subtle – telling us that God has little, if anything, to do with our lives, but any success we achieve we owe to the collective.

Politicians and bureaucrats only think they have God-like powers. God created sunsets, meadows strewn with wildflowers, snow-covered peaks and children’s laughter. Governments create wars that never end, depressions, recessions and downturns, the US Postal Service and ObamaCare.

God makes miracles. When they stray from their proper, limited, functions, governments make manure. Obama sells it by the steaming truckload.

Holland Where Healthcare Is Free For Everyone

Something happened today that has been playing on my mind since ten this morning. Peg and I were running errands and one of them was to drop off some documents with my financial advisor Joe. We stopped at the post office to buy stamps, and to post a document by Priority Mail. Joe’s office is just around the corner from the P.O. so I drove there to save a stamp and drop the asset inventory he asked for. I was looking for a parking space when a man stepped out from his car, it was Joe. I rolled down the window and handed him my package. What’s this he asked? It is the information you asked for. “How was your trip to Oktoberfest,” I asked?

“Eighteen days of hell,”  he answered.

“How so,” I asked?

“I had walking pneumonia the whole time, fever, and all.”

“What did you do about it?”

“I  stayed in Holland with a friend who took me to the local urgent care facility.”

“Free health care, how did it work?”

“They told me to put five tablespoons of sugar into some warm water and to drink it.”

“What? Are you kidding me?”

“Nope.”

“You came home with pneumonia and had it treated right?”

“Yes, and now I feel fine, but the trip was a total disaster.”

We wished each other a Happy Thanksgiving and he went to work; Peg and I continued our run of errands.

What has bothered me all day is the treatment he got in Europe, the fabulous continent, where health care is free for everyone.  Our Hope and Change President who is transforming us into Europe is on a path to treat us all with sugar-water, and to charge us a huge premium to do it.  I hope I can sleep tonight.

Fire Them All

The administrative regions of the United State...

The administrative regions of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Environmental Protection Agency is one of my least favorite bureaucracies. It has outlived its usefulness to we the people. It is now serves the political agenda of a leftist president. Last week, a friend gave me a news clip published in the Wall Street Journal Nov. 21, 2013  titled “The Spy Who Fooled the EPA.” The story is a sick tale about an EPA employee who fooled his bosses into thinking he really did work for them.

All I know is that someone who tricks his superiors into believing he is worth being paid by not doing anything is one shrewd cookie. What makes me furious is that the EPA  did nothing to reprimand him or his superiors for this conduct. Read the article below and tell me what you would have done about this guy if he was your employee.

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

The Environmental Protection Agency wants to be the nation’s super-regulator, though it might first try to regulate its own employees. At least the ones pretending to be James Bond.

The Department of Justice in late September announced a plea agreement with John C. Beale , until recently a senior career employee at EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. Beale, 64, has admitted to devoting most of his 23-year career to bilking taxpayers of some $900,000 in pay and expenses. “Saturday Night Live” couldn’t come up with this story.

Information released by law enforcement, and details from an investigation by Louisiana Senator David Vitter, show that the fraud began when Beale stated in his 1989 EPA job application that he’d worked for the U.S. Senate, though there is no record of such employment. By 1994 Beale was claiming he was a CIA operative to justify prolonged absences. Apparently this raised no eyebrows at EPA.

Prosecutors estimate that from 2000 to 2013 Beale was absent from his EPA duties for a total of 2.5 years, claiming to be working for “Langley” or on a special EPA “research project.” In 2008 he was gone for six months but never submitted a leave request. Around May 2011, Beale claimed to be retiring and celebrated with colleagues on a dinner cruise. An EPA manager admitted to not seeing Beale at the office after that, though not noticing until November 2012 that Beale was still on the payroll.

Beale used his “research” excuse to have taxpayers fund at least five trips to Los Angeles—worth $57,000 in travel expenses—to visit relatives and stay at nice hotels. Beale also claimed that he’d contracted malaria while serving in Vietnam, requiring taxpayers to cough up $18,000 for a handicapped parking spot in downtown Washington, D.C. He didn’t serve in Vietnam and he didn’t have malaria.

Beale was paid despite his absences and he received retention incentive bonuses that for a time made him among the highest paid employees at EPA. Mr. Vitter’s office has noted that Beale was only approved to receive these bonuses for six years, yet EPA somehow handed them out for 23. Spooks the world over are jealous.

To recap: The same agency that wants to regulate the nation’s carbon economy failed to vet a new hire, swallowed his spy stories, and paid a salary and bonuses to an employee who didn’t come to work and whom it didn’t notice was missing. EPA Inspector General Arthur Elkins, who is investigating the agency’s employment and supervisory practices, says this fraud was the result of “an absence of even basic internal controls at the EPA.”

Mr. Vitter is pushing for a Senate hearing into EPA mismanagement, but Environment and Public Works Chairman Barbara Boxer is resisting. Amid all of the other current demonstrations of government incompetence, perhaps she figures this is simply too embarrassing.

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

Isn’t that a hoot? Imagine if you found a job at a private sector company and after working there for a few years you go absent for a month or two. You come back and your boss asks you where you were and you tell him you were working for someone else. First of all, I don’t know a single supervisor who would not fire someone who went missing for a month. Second, if he still worked for the company when he came back, he wouldn’t last a minute, especially if he told them he went to work for someone else.

It is my lame opinion after serving as a manager for over thirty years that I would not only fire the perpetrator, but I would fire his direct supervisor for not knowing what the hell was going on. Lastly, I would get fired for not knowing what was going on in my area of responsibility.

When you work for the Federal government things are different.  Who cares what is going on? It’s only taxpayer money they waste so why not milk the system for everything it is worth?

The entire  EPA must be scrapped and a law passed to crucify anyone who comes up with another agency that has the same objectives as the EPA.

Boyz Night Out

Deliver (Oak Ridge Boys album)

On Thursday, I had the pleasure of meeting with four very old but close friends. Our ages range from seventy-two to eighty-three. We enjoy a monthly get together to drink some adult-beverage and to swap tales while sharing a meal. We met on this evening at the Ashford House on 159th Street in Tinley Park, a midway point between our homes.

We sat drinking, and explaining where they were when the tornado ripped through the area. The storm had different effects on each of us. Sherman lives in a heavily wooded area and one of his mature trees blew down and ripped through the back wall of his house. A large branch from that same tree pierced the liner in his garden pond. I laughed, only because this summer he completed repairs to the pond liner caused by a ground-hog that burrowed up from the bottom and chewed his way through the liner to get at Sherman’s collection of bog plants. His further inspection revealed that the tornado ripped the  bark off his Linden trees. Al cut in, “that’s a class-four storm when the bark gets stripped from trees.”

Lou told us his neighbor had a very large Ash tree about fifty feet tall that died from an invasion of the Emerald Ash borer. The tree was dead, and Lou worried that the tree, which leaned toward his house, would someday come crashing through his bedroom. Lou reported the neighbor had the tree removed on the day before the storm hit. He lucked out. Rod, who also lives in a wooded area saw no damage to his property, but picked up many blown down branches. Al reported losing a single butterfly bush planted just three years ago. Al lives on twenty plus acres of trees. Joe told of a roof being blown off at the Mobile Home park just south of town, and the roof of the muffler shop on route thirty raised up several feet then dropped back in place.

Four of us ordered the Thursday night special, a five dollar hamburger the size of a dinner plate, with soup, salad and fries. Sherman had lamb chops.

As we ate we began kibitzing and telling more stories. Joe began by relating a sudden desire to hear the Oak Ridge Boys in concert. They perform in Branson at this time of year, but Joe didn’t have the opportunity nor the cash to go. Just for fun he searched the I-net for the concert schedule and learned that the Boys who were at Branson on Friday would be at the Holiday Star Plaza theater in Merrillville, Indiana on Sunday.  For more fun, he checked the ticket availability; they had eight tickets left in the mezzanine at seventy dollars a piece. “Okay,” he said, “sign me up.” By the time he paid taxes, fees, and seven-fifty to download the tickets to his printer his bill came to $194.00. He did it anyway because it was cheaper than driving five hundred miles to Branson to see them. A twenty-dollar CD would have been even cheaper.

Al chimed in next. “I was talking on the telephone with my sister in Amarillo. One of her good friends wanted to borrow some money, but she didn’t have enough in her bank account. I joked with her that I had invested five dollars in a Mega Million lottery and expected to win that night. At 7:00 a.m. the next morning, I sent my sister an e-mail saying that I had won the Mega-Million lottery and a check would be in the mail to her.

At 7:20 I received an e-mail from the NSA congratulating me for winning the lottery. The e-mail claimed it was from all NSA employees.

At 8:30 a.m. I received another e-mail, this time from the IRS. It said that a normal tax amount would be deducted from my Mega Million winnings, but they knew that I had sold 2 million dollars of houses this year, so I would owe a high percentage of taxes on the gains from the property sales as well as any other income I had.They requested that I pay an extra $100,000 in taxes within ten days, and another $100,000 by January 15.

Later in the morning, I opened an e-mail from the ATF. They said they had verified that I was stocking up huge stores of food including twenty-four frozen turkeys on sale at forty-eight cents a pound at Jewel.

I answered the ATF that I purchased the food for the Frankfort Lions Club annual food distribution to the needy at Thanksgiving. The ATF responded almost immediately wanting me to give them a complete list of names and addresses of the Frankfort Lions and the recipients of the food delivery. Also, I am to include an inventory of weapons possessed by everyone on the list.

Early in the afternoon, The DEA e-mailed me that they knew I recently had $400,000 in my personal bank account, and since I had no job, this was likely drug money. They said their drone had inspected my 21.3 acres of land and found many unusual, as well as some suspicious plants growing inside my house. They said if I was innocent, I would allow them to inspect my property and home. If I didn’t allow an inspection they would get a subpoena to do so.

Later that afternoon I mailed my sister two dollars and told her it was one-half of my lottery winnings.”

A moment of stunned silence overcame the group as they digested what they just heard. Al bust out laughing and confessed that none of the above actually happened but that it could happen today in the big government world we live in.

And that folks, is how Boyz night out goes.
