Hand to Hand Combat

Actually, this cartoon does not fairly represent the Elitist Left. They don’t fight fair. They smear, they distort, they take things out of context and rewrite in their favor. Is that good politics? If it is, I don’t want any part of it. Where are the issues? Why aren’t they bragging about the infamous Obama Care, and the big spending, or the number of jobs created? They don’t dare. All I hear is that we will go back to the failed policies of the previous administration that got us into this mess.

I will take four percent unemployment, a surplus in the Treasury, and an economy that was booming during the previous administration. It all changed when the Democrats got control of the House. When Barney and Chris began pushing Fannie and Freddie to give away money to people they knew couldn’t pay back.

Yes, Change is coming but it won’t be the Obama Change. It will be real change for the better. Yes, Hope is coming, but it won’t be the Socialist dream from Obama’s father. It will be a country that works for a decent living.

Yes, we are an exceptional people. We started with a few brave Pilgrims who were not smarter than any other peoples in the world. All they wanted was to live in place where they were free to practice a belief in God. Why did the Pilgrims become so successful in establishing such a great country when the remainder of the world dreamed up really big socialist ideas? Why did Hitler and Stalin implement these great social ideas at the cost of millions of lives? The answer is simple, the leaders wanted power over the minds of the people.

Why are so many other countries still fighting poverty when the people who migrated to North America created such an exceptional system? Why are we the bad guys? Why do we have to redistribute our wealth for the failures of these many countries with corrupt governments?

Just for fun, I did some math. I asked myself what would happen if the entire GDP of the USA (13 Trillion) is redistributed equally to every man woman and child on the planet(8 billion). Do you know what would happen? Remember, several billion people in the world live on about two dollars a day.

The answer is that everyone including we the people who earn it all would be leveled off at $1850.00 per year. The people who live on $2.00 per day would be increased to $4.55 per day. That would come at the expense of 300 million Americans. Think about what you would do if you had to reduce your standard of living to live on $4.55 per day. Not very pretty is it? Those who live on $2.00 a day would celebrate to have double what they have now, but would they be better off?

We the people of the U.S.A. will be the slaves that feed the entire world. Is that fair for being the exceptional people that we are? Let those who are in love with liberal social policies be the first to give their fortunes to the less fortunate countries who started with the same brains as our forefathers, but who chose to live the way they still do. It is not our fault, nor our responsibility to bring them up to our standard of living. If you feel guilty because we the people of the USA have more than the rest of the world, seek psychiatric help soon. We did not make these people poor. Their governments chose to keep them as slaves, and the bureaucrats took advantage of them. We do not want that in the U.S.A

You will argue with me that we took advantage of these poor countries. If we relied on the natural resources of a foreign country, it was at a negotiated price. What did those governments do with the money we paid for those resources? Yep, they spent it all on schools, hospitals, road, water systems, and infrastructure for their population. Wrong, they spread it among their bureaucrats and had a good time while their people starved.

Thank God President Lincoln freed the slaves in this country, we don’t want to return to that system again. We choose to be free with liberty and justice for all.

I am Grumpa Joe, and I approve this message.

Nice Kitty

     CATS! People either hate ’em or love ’em. They are probably the most mis-understood animal on earth. I happen to be a middle of the roader cat person. I love to kid Peggy about what I would do to her cats if she were not looking, but in reality, I wouldn’t hurt a single allergy inciting strand of  fur on their bodies. They are the most popular pet in the country.

     Just for fun, I Googled “cat phrases,” I was shocked. There is a cat phrase for every thing in the book.  Phrases are listed under the following categories: lolcat, funny cat, cat chat, cat quotes, cat sayings, cat idioms, cat poem, and cat proverbs.  I finally found the one I wanted which is “fat cat,”  under idioms. President Obama used that phrase to refer to certain Bankers who he forced to take TARP money. It seems the President is upset with the amount of money these bankers awarded themselves in bonuses.

     There is one bank, however, located in Chicago, that has the President’s favor. Why? It seems the CEO is a big Obama fund raiser. It was my belief that this kind of behaviour would be revised under the guise of “change, and hopium.” Some things never change.

The Mood of the Country

Wow!  a new target to pick on. David Axelrod, genius advisor to Obama is being thrown to the media as a front man for Obama. If he does as well as the president’s press secretary Robert Gibbs, the liberals will shine brightly into the universe as a new beacon of change and hopium. Maybe an alien nation will come to our rescue. While we are waiting to be rescued, Axelrod, Gibbs, and Obama will have to deal with the current mood of the nation.

His Head in the Sand in Complete Denial

Which Will It Be? Human Potential, Or Human Destruction?

Abraham Maslow created a theory which is presented graphically with the pyramid shown at the left in the cartoon below.  His theory is broadly taught in classes about human potential and motivation. I for one, strongly agree with his analysis. When a person is hungry, and cold without food or shelter, it is very hard for him to think about finding himself. All he thinks about is where the next meal is coming from. My life has closely followed this pyramid of needs. I am first now, at age seventy-something working at self actualization. It wasn’t easy to get to this point in life, and now I see a threat to my actually reaching the top of the pyramid. The threat is the “Wedge of Destruction,” as shown in the right panel of the cartoon. It represents the complete opposite of the pyramid of needs. It is a reverse pyramid, balanced on its tip. It is bound to fail, but not without destroying the USA in the process. We are headed toward becoming a “banana republic” which is mediocrity at its best. Let’s continue to redistribute the wealth, lose  liberties, and allow the government to make us wards of the state by complete submission.
