Thank God... the Nirvana we've been hoping and praying for, for so long, is finally arriving.
First Bank Protection. We, us, Citizens, finally own the largest Bank in the World. And we have our guys... the guys that wear the white hats, the Democrats... running it. We never have to lose another minute's sleep wandering and worrying if the Bank will still be there when we awake in the morning. That is now assured! We've had Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for some time, but this is the Jewel in the Crown... Citi Bank is finally ours. And just to put some honey on that Ice Cream, our own government employees are running it!
Next... the World's Largest Insurance Company. No more Fat Cats with their corporate jets and fancy yachts.... AIG is ours. We can do with it as we please... we own it lock, stock and both smoking barrels! Hurray, hurray! Now we can put it to good use. We can sell those derivatives and insure them to boot. No more derivative failures to concern Wall Street... No more rich bastards at the till... our own men in D.C. the Dems, are on top of it.
Thirdly... we are finally the proud possessors of the World's Largest Auto-maker, the dastardly anti-American destroyers of the planet.... GM. "What's Good for General Motors is good for America," finally has true meaning. We no longer have to look at those huge ugly Hummers, those stupid "no haggling" Saturns, and the muscle car icon, Pontiac. And now, once and for all, we can get rid of that single object of affluence and waste... the hated SUV! Thank goodness they they are all history! I for one am looking forward to the day when we can each have our own honest to goodness deluxe huge green golf cart with all the conveniences we'll need. For example, just take refueling...when I want or need a fill-up I can just plug'er in. No more gas stations. No more gas taxes. No more motors that need, ugh.. OIL. Again, a Win for the White Hats... yes, we have our own Car Czar who, at the direct direction of Mr. Obama, is running the place the way a car company should be run!
Fourth, Comprehensive Health Care. Now this is a biggie. Finally, with taxes on soda and Twinkies, I will no longer sweat diabetes. With taxes on Trans-fats I will no longer sweat obesity. With taxes on the Fat Cats, I will no longer sweat the insurance coverage that 50,000,000 plus citizens, and non citizens alike, don't have. These poor bastards have been left out in the cold to fend for themselves for too long. But no more. Our guys in the white hats have got them covered. In addition, and this is a big plus for me, my insurance costs, and all my medical costs for that matter, will go down to..... ZERO! I'll get to choose my own doctor and get all the medical care this wonderful country has to offer... for free! FREE! It's my right and to sweeten the deal, the people at the DMV are at this very moment being interviewed for the prime positions in the management of it!
And now number Five... the BIG DADDY... We are at last protected, by those good souls in Washington D.C., from.... da dah.... The Weather! That's right! We no longer have to fear the weather, i.e. Global Warming, or more popularly, Climate Change. Now the weather will no longer be allowed to change. I don't have the overarching fear, each time I breath in, that the air is going to kill me. That the oceans are going to rise and destroy the inhabited world. That the polar bear will no longer have a home. That hurricanes are going to blow me away. That I'm going to fry! And it was all done with stroke of a pen through the magic of... Taxation! Cap and Trade, just a breath away (for give the pun) from final passage in the God Blessed, filibuster-proof Senate, will tax those S.O.B's that are making our planet unlivable by making stuff! Forget the fact that the weather man can't tell me what the weather will be like for my birthday golf outing a couple months downstream, or even what it'll be like next weekend... but I can now rest assured that it will be good... for my yet unborn great grand kids. AND, it means lifetime employment for Big Al Gore and his G.I.M. Corp.
Hallelujah... we are saved saved, saved at last.
Six.... Now, and I am holding my breath for this one... no pun... I am once again hoping and praying. This time for Energy Independence. I think that it is high time that we go after the Big Oil companies. They and the speculators that are their money grubbing buddies. It is time that we take a page from Saudi Arabia's book, from Hugo Chavez's book, from Iran's book, from North Korea's book... it is time to nationalize Big Oil. Think about it... with just the stroke of that almighty pen, we can own our own oil! The oil put beneath our feet by God. The oil that rightfully belongs to each and everyone of us. Exxon did not invent oil... they just pump it and then charge us an exorbitant fee for the privilege of burning it. Is that fair? I think not. Another benefit... the price of home heating oil, the price of gasoline, the price of everything energetic, will at last be stable. Why? No More Speculators! With Big Oil owned by us, we Citizens, we will be able to plan on the costs of heating our home, and until we get the new Government Motors Chevy Volt, the cost of getting back and forth to work! Of course I'm assuming that Work will still be there.... I HOPE it is, unemployment is not the CHANGE I voted for.
Go Obama... get those S.O.B's while the gettin' is good! Yahoo! Go America!

Sarah Palin is crazy, like a fox! Early last week I wrote Governor Palin to tell her that I am not a Republican, did not vote for John McCain, but voted for her. I went on to ask her to represent voters like myself and to form a new party.... The New Party. Several days later I was gratified to hear her resignation as Governor of Alaska. Both the Democrats and Republicans are terrified of her, her popularity, her connection with the voter. But more than that they are terrified of her lack of respect for the powers that be.
She Has No Respect!
Sarah Palin knows how these people in positions of power feel about her, she saw it during McCain's run for the Presidency. In preparation for her Biden Debate, the McCain Team actually steered her away from help in attacking Obama! This was ludicrous! Who did they think McCain was running against? Joe Biden? Even at the risk of losing the election, some in the Republican hierarchy were so frightened of her they thought nothing of the potential total loss their utterings might bring about. What could scare them so? Sarah Palin's sense of morality? Her ideas of right and wrong? Or was it, to borrow a phrase from Obama, her clinging to her guns and religion? Both the Democrats and the newly amoral Republicans are afraid of her positions on energy, climate, and America's place in this world. They are afraid of her position on abortion. They are afraid of her family values. They are afraid, above all, of her loyalty to the common man and woman. Or is it her potential to cut her own party, to hurt even fellow Republicans, if principles were put on the chopping block, as they were in Wasilla? As they were in Juneau.
By stepping down Sarah confounds these detractors. It is without question that her opponents understand her appeal, and see in her something they certainly should fear. As she defeated similar interests in Alaska, first as Mayor and then as Governor, she was on track to present troubles downstream. Sarah could spend the next year gaining national attention, Governorship presents immediate access to the media, and slowly build her case for a run in 2012 appealing to whats left of the true Americans, Conservatives of every stripe, Conservative family values, fiscal Conservatives, international Conservatives. People that do believe that there truly exists good and evil, right and wrong, moral and immoral. These true Americans live all over this country, but are more and more turned-off by the morality of the huge coastal cities.
Upon returning to Alaska she quickly discovered there were people after her. Law suits and false charges were to keep her cornered and bottled-up for the duration of her term in office. By the time Sarah's term had expired they would have drained her of energy, money and would have succeeded in turning her into damaged goods. But now they are left without a handle. How to get hold of her now?
She is not a quitter any more than the hunter that changes positions in order to remain the hunter..... so as not to become the hunted... is a quitter. Sarah's gun is loaded for bear, Alaskan Style. Washington.... she's coming for you.
Sarah Palin is the quintessential American with true grit. Sarah Palin is smart, Sarah Palin is an American to be proud of, she is an American to support as she confounds the nattering nabobs.

In 2006 41% and in 2008 49% of the households in America paid no Federal Income Taxes. In 2009 that number will exceed 50%! Think about that for a minute. It means that the rest of us are each paying for one additional household - one beyond our own. The way we are going... fees of every kind and a coming that will collect money from virtually every aspect of life..... the States and the Feds will rely less and less on Income Taxes and will concentrate those taxes on those whom Obama pointed-out during his run for office..... those earning over $250 thousand a year. That's an important fact: The 'new' majority electorate will increasingly receive cash entitlements and will therefore continue to vote for the Democrats, leaving the other party with ever fewer voters. I say 'new' because this represents a new class of voter.... the class that pay no income taxes, mostly ardent supporters of Mr. Obama; the new majority voter.
If you've been following what has happened in Honduras you will realize why the above is so important. There, President Zelaya, a close 'friend' of Venezuela's President Chavez, attempted to alter the Honduran Constitutional provision that restricts Presidents to a single term. This was in order to get himself in a position to be elected . To do this he would have had to call for a Constitutional Convention and have a super majority agree to the alteration, a process that probably would have failed. By the way, this is similar to the method our own Constitution calls for in order to alter it or any of its Amendments.
Zelaya decided to do an 'end run' by having his supporters, a majority of the popular vote, cast a direct vote to alter or amend the Constitution. Since he currently has a situation similar to ours, in that he has a large body of disaffected and under privileged supporters he could probably, with little massaging, get the plurality he'd need to declare himself eligible for another term. This is similar to the move Chavez made. As a matter of fact, when Zelaya announced his intentions, they were met with resistance and he couldn't get the necessary ballots printed locally. Guess what? He was supplied with all the ballots he needed by Chavez! When he was arrested for attempting to subvert the Constitution, those ballots were confiscated by the army and he was escorted to the airport.
I thought it was wonderful that Zelaya failed in this bold move to seize more power and to mimic his prime supporter Chavez. I was dismayed when Mr. Obama apologized for America to the Europeans. I blanched when Mr. Obama bowed-down to the Saudi King. I was left speechless when he failed to condemn the Iraqis for the bloody response to a peaceful "soft" revolution there. I became frightened when Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton voiced support for Zelaya and urged his return to power! I fear that once Acorn has completely morphed into an official Federal Agency (it is already nearly totally funded by the Feds, to the tune of Billions), with its name changed into something akin to 's WPA (The Works Progress Administration was the largest New Deal agency, employing millions of people and affecting almost every locality in the United States), and dressed-up as a way for people to "serve" their country and in return receive a support entitlement, plus a sweetener like a free year of higher education for each year "served," Obama would have the cadre he'd need to attempt what Zelaya has failed at. All just paranoid musings? Let's hope so.
These be interesting times, Yikes!!
