Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”
“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats are at it again; attempting to raise taxes, even if it may be necessary to distort the “true facts” that will lead to even higher prices to consumers of gasoline at the pumps. If these tax increases pass, Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats may believe they can obtain more tax spending ability and at the same time, blame the Republicans for even higher, and worsening gasoline price increases.
This distortion of the facts may have been started on Capitol Hill by Democrats in February, 2011 and these twisted results have grown with misrepresentations of defeated final vote results on the “Markey Amendments” H.AMDT.119 to H.R.1 and the House Chair’s rejection of H.AMDT.56 to H.R.1.
The “Markey Amendment” H.AMDT.119 to H.R.1 was based on the fact that Capitol Hill Democrats were continuing to add additional taxes as “Royalty taxes” for the oil companies drilling for more oil and gasoline http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:hz119. The House majority Republicans rejected the “Markey Amendment” http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2011/roll109.xml with a final vote of 174-Yes; 251-NO; with 8-Not Voting.
“Markey Amendment” H.AMDT.56 to H.R.1 would have given added tax money to more Low Income Home Energy Assistance http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:hz56. Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) raised a point of order against the “Markey Amendment” (A046) stating that the amendment seeks to change existing law and constitutes legislation in an appropriations bill. The Chair sustained the point of order.
In essence, the House majority Republicans have rejected “ Royalty tax” and all other taxes that would have added gasoline cost; then the added cost passed on to American consumers. In fact, the GOP is in support of more drilling for gasoline and oil to lower gasoline cost at the pumps for American consumers.
Democrat House Committee Ranking Member Edward J. Markey (D-MA-7) issued a News Release “Republicans Side with Big Oil, Reject $53 Billion in Taxpayer Savings”. To Markey and other Liberal Democrats, additional gasoline taxes to consumers are taxpayers’ savings. Evaluate that one!
Capitol Hill Democrats have been playing Markey’s defeated Amendment as the GOP in support of big oil. Rep. Edward Markey’s (D-MA-7) record may confirm that Rep. Markey is a big-tax, big-deficient-spending Democrat member of Congress.
How much longer will President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats continue to raise taxes? How much longer will President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats continue to distort the “true facts” on gasoline costs? When will President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats allow additional “known quantity” drilling for oil and gasoline? When will President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats focus on lower taxes and jobs, jobs, and more jobs?

CHICAGO -- Real estate billionaire Donald Trump gave Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel $50,000 in December 2010, just months before hinting to the media he is seriously contemplating a bid to be the Republican Party's 2012 presidential nominee.
Illinois State Board of Elections records show Trump's contribution to Emanuel, Barack Obama's former chief of staff, was not the first time Trump has donated to Illinois candidates. ISBE records show the New York native also gave $5000 to a Republican gubernatorial candidate George Ryan in 1998. After Ryan was elected, Trump followed up with another $5000 three years later, weeks before Ryan announced he was not seeking re-election.
Sixteen months later, Trump then donated $5000 to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Rod Blagojevich and gave another $2000 in 2002, during Blagojevich's his successful re-election bid.
Former Governor George Ryan is now sitting in federal prison and impeached Governor Rod Blagojevich is now being retried in a federal court on felony charges.
Trump has also sent $12,500 to the Cook County Democratic Party.

Think the “right” principles. Live the “right” morality. Practice the “right” honesty. Teach the “right” sincerity. Let these “right” factors be your conduct and your value issues all the time in life.
Others will watch, observe, learn, and follow your achievements, your values, your wisdom, and your life.
Each of us can make a “positive difference” in others’ life. Just do it!

If President Obama really wants to work out a deal with the more Conservative majority Republican US House, why doesn’t President Obama invite Rep. Paul Ryan to sit in on bi-partisan negotiations? After all, Rep. Paul Ryan has been elected by the GOP House membership as Chairman of the House Budget Committee. Rep. Paul Ryan and his committee are responsible for proposing a 2012 budget.
Is President Obama, with the absence of Rep. Paul Ryan being part of negotiations, making an effort to divide-and-conquer. I will “betcha” that deletion was on purpose.

After five surgeries on my back, I am currently opting to allow my body to repair itself. With that in mind, I am forced to peck on my keyboard, one letter, with one finger, at a time.
The Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party is attempting to protect taxpayers from being forced to pay a share for National Public Radio and taxpayers’ paid abortions.
It is simple to solve this government “shutdown”. First, with thousands of AM and FM radio stations, why should taxpayers pay any of the cost for National Public Radio (NPR)? Why not sell NPR to the highest bidder?
Secondly, why should taxpayers be forced to pay for abortions? For years, based on political polls, a large majority of Americans oppose abortions at taxpayers’ expense.
This 2011 budget catastrophe should have been settled before October 1, 2010 when Democrats controlled the White House, US Senate, and the US House of Representatives.
Whenever President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats can arrive at these two common-sense approvals, our American government can operate immediately.
Now, and without these two common-sense conclusions, you must blame the government “shutdown” on President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats.

President Obama and Capitol Hill Democrats continue, in another extreme effort, to compel their “Never Under Taxed” (NUT) Party members and supporters to spend more of (y)our taxpayers’ money. Moreover, these NUT legislators’ mission is to, without principle, condemn and smear the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party without any substantial foundation.
TEA Party members and supporters are Conservative and usually Republicans. TEA Party members and supporters are ordinary, middle, working class Americans. TEA Party members and supporters have a strong desire to work hard and work smart as a part in life to exceed while on their job(s) in providing their family’s necessities of shelter, food, other needs, and additional comforts in life. In their progression of life, each understands the importance to pay reasonable and sensible taxes, rather than excessive and/or disproportionate taxes, for necessary government services.
Republican members on Capitol Hill are attempting to stop the excessive and wasteful spending in completing the remainder of fiscal year 2011 that Congress failed to finish last year. Republicans are concentrating on spending less on wasteful projects as well as lowering taxes. This would assist Americans to invest more of their resources into “new jobs” and/or “expanding existing jobs”.
NUT Party members and supporters are radical left-wing Liberals, usually Democrats, who practice and believe that government should provide all the needs for all of the people all the time. NUT Party members and supporters believe that there are no limits to excessive taxation for employers and/or employees who may be willing to work hard, work smart, and exceed more in life. US Senate majority Democrats are refusing to make necessary and mandatory cuts in order to restrain their out-of-control budget. Now, NUT Party members on Capitol Hill practice more government aid for unwanted and unneeded legislation so as to “cram it down our throats”.
When President Obama and the majority Capitol Hill Democrat Party took office in January 2009, the National Debt was $10.6 trillion. This April 2011, the National Debt is approaching $14.3 trillion. This out-of-control spending represents $3.7 trillion of deficit expenditures in a little more than two (2) years.
The November 2010 General Election was a Democrat Party awakening for their out-of-control spending, yet they repudiate or even acknowledge the message. The message was “STOP THE SPENDING”. Today, as the Democrat Party out-of-control spending continues, their NUT Party actions are dying as in quicksand.
