This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

The Federal Bail Out - Thanks But No Thanks


~Snooper~

Vote this up at Digital Journal please, thanks. (posted there at 2320 hours)

The current financial crisis in the united States is certainly a very ugly situation but why should the American tax payer pay for the sins and the crimes of those that have perpetrated this quagmire? Why is no one calling for the head of Chris Dodd?

And, what does President Bush have to do with it besides the rampant Bush Derangement Syndrome elements trying to make it so? Did President Bush create this mess? Did he? If so, where are the facts to prove it? If there are any, I would like to know what and where they are. If it can be shown and proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, I will most assuredly join the building crescendo railing against him.

Alas, that is not to come. Seeing that very few, if any, in the alleged main street media have the moral fortitude to at least try to print facts but print opinion and innuendo and present those as facts, how are we to know? Where are the substantiations of the allegations that the current financial issues can be pinned on GWB?

I went on a fact-finding mission on my own.

Community Reinvestment Act...Under President Carter
[...] The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), enacted by Congress in 1977 (12 U.S.C. 2901) and implemented by Regulations 12 CFR parts 25, 228, 345, and 563e, is intended to encourage depository institutions to help meet the credit needs of the communities in which they operate. In this section of the web site, you can find out more about the regulation and its interpretation and information on CRA examinations. [...]
This was designed to stimulate the economy and Lord knows that President Carter needed something. His Administration was rife with double digit inflation, mortgage rates and unemployment. He was also suffering from the war declared on the United States by Iran and his inability to do anything about it until it was seen that he wasn't going to win re-election.

The sub prime debacle, created by the members of the DNC became a contagion for other charlatans that saw a way to reap the benefits of no over sight whatsoever. In 1994, the sub prime market really took off after President Clinton performed his "duty" as a social change engineer in 1992. Everyone thought that loaning money to high risk people was a good idea, including the borrowers. Until the notes came due.

It wasn't the banks that created this mess nor was it evil capitalists. It was Big Government and over time, the creeping and incremental socialism began festering and boiling. Fast forward to 2003.

In the New York Times:
The Bush administration today recommended the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago.

Under the plan, disclosed at a Congressional hearing today, a new agency would be created within the Treasury Department to assume supervision of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored companies that are the two largest players in the mortgage lending industry.

The new agency would have the authority, which now rests with Congress, to set one of the two capital-reserve requirements for the companies. It would exercise authority over any new lines of business. And it would determine whether the two are adequately managing the risks of their ballooning portfolios.

The plan is an acknowledgment by the administration that oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- which together have issued more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding debt -- is broken. A report by outside investigators in July concluded that Freddie Mac manipulated its accounting to mislead investors, and critics have said Fannie Mae does not adequately hedge against rising interest rates. [...]
To the proponents of blaming Bush for everything, spin that. As far back as 2003, President Bush tried to stem the bleeding from mortal wounds that previous Administrations created and caused.

Not surprisingly, the measure was defeated by Democrats in Congress. One can only surmise that they didn't want any of their power to fall under a microscope and having anyone other than them controlling the banking laws and procedures was unacceptable. In other words, no one was going to perform any oversight on those charged with oversight.
[...] ''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ''The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.''

Representative Melvin L. Watt, Democrat of North Carolina, agreed.

''I don't see much other than a shell game going on here, moving something from one agency to another and in the process weakening the bargaining power of poorer families and their ability to get affordable housing,'' Mr. Watt said. [END]
I am not quite sure if this is incredible or incredulous. Here a sitting President identified the problem and offered a way to fix the problem before Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac imploded beyond repair and the Democrats - the same Democrats that are now blaming President Bush - said that it was all a shell game.

I wonder what they call it now.

Fast forward to 2005, FEDERAL HOUSING ENTERPRISE REGULATORY REFORM ACT OF 2005: John McCain:
[...] I join as a cosponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation. If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.

I urge my colleagues to support swift action on this GSE reform legislation. [END]
It was defeated. So, don't tell me that President Bush or John McCain are responsible for the current financial crisis. Any and all that make that asinine assertion is, in my opinion, either disingenuous or a straight out liar. Or, they could have been misled by either of the latter mentioned.

The measure never became law. And now, the ugly head of Mothra has emerged and the Democrats are in panic mode. They cannot be seen as being primarily responsible for this current quagmire self-induced. This is another example of a socialist entitlement program run amok as well as fomenting the fail policy of Identity Politics.

Yes, the mortgage industry is in trouble and as my friend MacsMind so stipulates:
[...] For years there has been gross mismanagement and flat out fraud. Why is there not a criminal investigation being called? Why are we not readying jail cells for all of these corrupt politicians and CEO’s that robbed these GSE’s blind and have now left us liable for a TRILLION dollars in debt? Why are we bailing them out? Certainly not bailing them out would cause massive financial problems for this country and this world - but so what. It would be temporary as the market rights itself. And now there are ramblings of bailing out U.S. automakers. [...]
Take heed, listen and learn:
[...] Warning signals were everywhere. Yet at every turn, Democrats in Congress halted attempts to stop the madness. It happened in 1992, again in 2000, in 2003 and in 2005. It may happen this year, too.

Since 1989, Fannie and Freddie have spent an estimated $140 million on lobbying Washington. They contributed millions to politicians, mostly Democrats, including Senator Chris Dodd (No. 1 recipient) and Barack Obama (No. 3 recipient, despite only three years in office).

The Clinton White House used Fannie and Freddie as a patronage job bank. Former executives and board members read like a who's who of the Clinton-era Democratic Party, including Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelick, Jim Johnson and current Rep. Rahm Emanuel.

Collectively, they and others made well more than $100 million from Fannie and Freddie, whose books were cooked Enron-style during the late 1990s and early 2000s to ensure executives got their massive bonuses.

They got the bonuses. You get the bill. [END]


So, who is too blame and what do we do about it? What are the solutions? What, then, is the proper manner in which to settle this in the long run and not the emotional short term?

So many questions and so few viable answers.

I Agree With Macsmind - OUTRAGED! UPDATES Below The Fold



~Snooper~

Earlier today on my BTR program, I read Macsmind's post in regards to absolutely insane federal bail out of people that have made a complete mess of the economy. In part, with emphasis added as my own:
[...] For years there has been gross mismanagement and flat out fraud. Why is there not a criminal investigation being called? Why are we not readying jail cells for all of these corrupt politicians and CEO’s that robbed these GSE’s blind and have now left us liable for a TRILLION dollars in debt? Why are we bailing them out? Certainly not bailing them out would cause massive financial problems for this country and this world - but so what. It would be temporary as the market rights itself. And now there are ramblings of bailing out U.S. automakers. [...]
And now, the text of the bail out...with discussion at Memeorandum...is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. Like Macsmind says, I want people indicted, arrested, tried, sentenced and in prison. What in the hell has ever happened to personal responsibility? Why should I have to pay for this crap? And, if I have to pay for this crap, where is my cut - my percentage? Why should the CEOs and political hacks be able to keep the millions they have bilked the government and the people? What in the hell is that all about?

To my utter disbelief, I have to agree with DarkSyde at the KOSMONOFF site! Somebody get me a doctor!
This can't mean what it looks like it means. Because if it does, it's pitchfork and torch time, and I think I can say, based on the diverse political inclinations of the people who have emailed it to me, handing out 700 billion dollars under this deal could result in a fully bipartisan, mass public lynching: [...]
As we say here in Texas...GIT A ROPE! The government started this crap and let it go unchecked. When President Bush and John McCain tried to call attention to the mounting problems, NOTHING was done or the actions to investigate were stopped. WHY IS THAT? Are we to believe that creating yet ANOTHER agency is going to fix it? Who is going to watch dog the watch dog? I don't see that in any of the "draft verbiage", folks.

[UPDATE 1] with more discussion at Memeorandum
Paul Krugman:
I hate to say this, but looking at the plan as leaked, I have to say no deal. Not unless Treasury explains, very clearly, why this is supposed to work, other than through having taxpayers pay premium prices for lousy assets. [...]
Absotively...and Mark Levin explains the crisis here...(click to listen)

Community Reinvestment Act...Under President Carter, pressured by ACORN
The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), enacted by Congress in 1977 (12 U.S.C. 2901) and implemented by Regulations 12 CFR parts 25, 228, 345, and 563e, is intended to encourage depository institutions to help meet the credit needs of the communities in which they operate. In this section of the web site, you can find out more about the regulation and its interpretation and information on CRA examinations.
IBD Editorials: HT Newsbusters
To hear today's Democrats, you'd think all this started in the last couple years. But the crisis began much earlier. The Carter-era Community Reinvestment Act forced banks to lend to uncreditworthy borrowers, mostly in minority areas.

Age-old standards of banking prudence got thrown out the window. In their place came harsh new regulations requiring banks not only to lend to uncreditworthy borrowers, but to do so on the basis of race.

These well-intended rules were supercharged in the early 1990s by President Clinton. Despite warnings from GOP members of Congress in 1992, Clinton pushed extensive changes to the rules requiring lenders to make questionable loans. [...]

Failure to comply meant your bank might not be allowed to expand lending, add new branches or merge with other companies. Banks were given a so-called "CRA rating" that graded how diverse their lending portfolio was. [...]

In the name of diversity, banks began making huge numbers of loans that they previously would not have. They opened branches in poor areas to lift their CRA ratings.

Meanwhile, Congress gave Fannie and Freddie the go-ahead to finance it all by buying loans from banks, then repackaging and securitizing them for resale on the open market.

That's how the contagion began.

With those changes, the subprime market took off. From a mere $35 billion in loans in 1994, it soared to $1 trillion by 2008.
Holy Cow! We are to pay for these bad business and bad government risks? BLOODY HELL!

The Foundry also has the text of the draft...the WaPo has a good piece but they only go back 12 years, imagine that? Protein Wisdom carries the torch here. In another WaPo piece, they call the linking of Czarbie to the Wall Street quagmire as racist. More at Memeorandum. An idiot says that BUSH DID IT...moron.

This ain't over folks...

Czarbie's Logan Act Violations


~Snooper~


Hagel can say anything he wants but I already know that he is a RINO, a Democrat pretending to be a Republican and a full-fledged socialist. Just like his pal and confidant Czarbie.

In previous posts entitled I'll Take "What Is Treason" For The Presidency Alex, The Obama Camp Confirms Treason and Logan Act Violations, Message From Melanie Morgan: Obama's Disgraceful Action and Obama - Nobama - Czarbama - Czarbie - Fraud and Treasonous Scum, I brought to your attention that which is Czarbie's treachery. I stand by those and spit in the face of PC. In addition, I have yet another post written today entitled, PC Strikes: Wrong On Czarbie.

The inspiration(s) which urged my writings are what I already know about Czarbie and his Marxist nonsense. Coupled with that are the following articles at the NY Post and NRO written by Amir Taheri: OBAMA TRIED TO STALL GIS' IRAQ WITHDRAWAL, OBAMA OBJECTS BUT THE EVIDENCE SAYS I'M RIGHT, BARACK DENIES USING STALL TACTICS WITH IRAQ (Geoff Earle), Obama 101 My firsthand lesson.

Many other blog posts, pieces and articles around the internet that Gore made (and that Nancy confirmed) also have helped shape my conclusions - not that I really needed any, naturally.

If there is one error in the original NY Post piece, it is that the conversation was over a phone and not when Ambassador Crocker was in the room. From an article written 16 JUNE 2008:
[...] He said he told Zebari that negotiations for a Status of Forces agreement or strategic framework agreement between the two countries should be done in the open and with Congress's authorization and that it was important that that there be strong bipartisan support for any agreement so that it can be sustained through a future administration. He argued it would make sense to hold off on such negotiations until the next administration. [...]
Can you say or spell "Logan Act"? There are several more "foreign policy" making statements in that article that Czarbie himself said that he said to Hoshyar Zebari. Is it my fault that I pay attention to details and others do not? Not good enough? Then do your own research.

It makes no difference to me that no one in "the meeting" spoke up. Czarbie himself has admitted that he has discussed Foreign Policy with foreign leaders. If you have clicked the link above which takes you to the MSNBC piece, you would have seen it for yourself. If you have not seen it for yourself, it isn't my fault if you continue on thinking that Czarbie did nothing wrong.

Czarbie violated the Logan Act much like Nancy Pelosi has done on any number of occasions.

That's just the way it is. Get over it and demand that he answer for his "indiscretions".

PC Strikes: Wrong On Czarbie

~Snooper~

In this day of political correctness, a cancer that has swept this nation, I submit that I will never succumb to such nonsense. I do not accuse Sister Toldjah of this but I do accuse others of submitting to the PC Nazis for political expediency. Such is the case of Nancy Pelosi's and now Czarbie's violations of the Logan Act. Just because some politicians have said that Czarbie didn't "try to" affect Foreign Policy means nothing to me.
Via Instapundit, I read a report by Jake Tapper which discusses how Bush administration officials - and other Republican congressmen - are saying that Barack Obama did not try to interfere with Bush’s policy towards Iraq in a meeting with Iraq leaders as originally reported … because those officials and congressmen were with him.
Gee. So, if a rapist didn't "mean to" and his friends were with him, than his violation is OK? Not hardly. Oh. That's right. "Don't tell me words don't matter!" "Just words? Just speeches?" Please.

I respect and admire Sister Toldjah and agree 99.9999999999% of the time but, in this case, I whole heartedly object.

No where in the United States Constitution is political correctness discussed or sanctioned.

In recent days, the conservative blogosphere has exploded into utter contempt and disgust over Czarbie and his foreign policy intrusions in Iraq. Is it constitutional for a sitting or former Senator to travel around discussing foreign policy with foreign leaders or trying to change foreign policy? Is it constitutional for a sitting or former House Member to travel around discussing foreign policy with foreign leaders or trying to change foreign policy? Is it constitutional for an American Citizen to travel around discussing foreign policy with foreign leaders or trying to change foreign policy? The answer is obviously, "NO".

Section VIII of the United States Constitution defines the duties of the Legislative Branch which, by the way, means the Senate and The House. Section IX of the United States Constitution defines the limitations of the Legislative Branch which, by the way, means the Senate and The House. Section II of the United States Constitution defines the power of the Presidency. The only one that can direct Foreign Policy is the president of the United States and the intent is the SITTING President. Not a former President or an Aspiring President, no matter their alleged standing in the world. Period.

This was all confirmed and solidified via the Logan Act of 1799. The Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 [1948]) is a single federal statute making it a crime for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States. Specifically, it prohibits citizens from negotiating with other nations on behalf of the United States without authorization. The text:
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Crickets from our esteemed politicians. And now, The Smith Act:
The Alien Registration Act of 1940, usually called the Smith Act because the antisedition section was authored by Representative Howard W. Smith of Virginia, was adopted at 54 Statutes at Large 670-671 (1940). The Act has been amended several times and can now be found at 18 U.S. Code § 2385 (2000).

§ 2385. Advocating Overthrow of Government.

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof--

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

As used in this section, the terms "organizes" and "organize", with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of person.
More crickets.

Taking into consideration everything Czarbie has said about the Troops, their Mission, President Bush and his rhetoric which not only emboldens the enemy but enables and encourages the enemy to step up attacks against our Troops - much like his kind did during the Vietnam War (or Police Action) - in which claimed my brother's life in 1968, I wouldn't put it past Czarbie to shaft the Troops at every chance he could.

In previous posts entitled I'll Take "What Is Treason" For The Presidency Alex, The Obama Camp Confirms Treason and Logan Act Violations, Message From Melanie Morgan: Obama's Disgraceful Action and Obama - Nobama - Czarbama - Czarbie - Fraud and Treasonous Scum, I brought to your attention that which is Czarbie's treachery. I stand by those and spit in the face of PC.

Also taking into consideration Czarbie's associations with known enemies of the state and unrepentant domestic terrorists and his wet dream of a Civilain National Security Force, how can anyone possibly not believe Taheri's account which was confirmed by his own campaign?

Dan at Riehl World acknowledges, as I have, that Czarbie's treachery stems from his inexperience and his total and complete misunderstanding of our very Founding as a Nation.
[...] Obama was irresponsible, repulsive and un-American in his behavior. Yet, a media cowed by race and political correctness likely won't utter a harsh word about Oba-neophyte's terrible and dangerous indiscretions in Iraq. He wanted as many of our troops at risk for as long as possible hoping to ride the headlines chronicling American dead and wounded to the White House.

Really, does it get any more repulsive than that, particularly for a man who professes to become Commander in Chief, even though he lacks the experience to run a Wal-Mart?

Shameful and disgusting, there simply are not enough pejoratives to describe this self-indulgent, ignorant little man. [END]
Certainly Czarbie is unfit for command.

The issues I have with the post at Ace and others is as follows: some are saying that Hagel agrees with Czarbie's account. Hagel also said that Palin was unqualified. PC has struck once again. In the piece at Ace:
[...] As I noted in my original post, this wasn’t the first time Obama and the Iraqi Foreign Minister had differing opinions on a conversation. If it had happened the way the Post column claims you’d think someone else (not Chuck Hagel but either a committee or embassy staffer) would have come forward at some point to confirm it.

Absent some other form of confirmation, it’s looking like Obama didn’t cross any lines on his trip. Thank Heaven for small favors, I guess. [END]
I don't care what it looks like to the PC Nazis and I especially don't care what Hagel the RINO says about anything. What this is all about is that there are no honest men in DC anymore and the media frenzy that would ensue from anyone trying to enforce the Logan and Smith Acts would make the cowards wet their panties.

Perhaps it would be wise for those that doubt Czarbie's treachery to read Obama 101. It is a two-page essay and confirms to me, no matter the fluff I hear in the PC world, that Czarbie is a master at gab and is a Clear and Present Danger. He no honors and supports our Troops than I am a supporter of his Marxist garbage. I will believe an Iraqi Official in their government more than I would believe ANY RINO and certainly over Czarbie.

The Daily Mental Disease - aka Daily Kos

~Snooper~

If there was ever a case study to be conducted in regards to the mental disorder of American Liberalism, the total moronic flat-liners at the Daily KOSmonoffs would be a good start. These cretins that contribute to the most lamest of the lame anti-Americanists known to man hang out over there and are clueless beyond any reasonable doubt.

They are so clueless that they have started their own presidential polling. Simply amazing.

I suppose this is what happens when losers such as they are once again on the wrong side of Freedom. Sad that but not unexpected.

History Will Vindicate President Bush

~Snooper~

History will vindicate President Bush and will denounce the groups and individuals that suffer from Bush Derangement Syndrome and in recent days, the Palin Derangement Syndrome.

I have proof positive of my assertions for several decades that the Leftinistra can never admit ever being wrong about anything. Back in September, Sen Lieberman and Sen Graham issued the following resolution:
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senators Joe Lieberman (ID-CT) and Lindsey Graham today urged the U.S. Senate to adopt a bipartisan resolution that recognizes the reality of the strategic success of the surge in Iraq:

"It was exactly one year ago today that General David Petraeus returned to Capitol Hill to testify before Congress about the progress of the surge in Iraq. At the time, many members of the Senate argued that the surge -- despite growing evidence of its success -- was not working and should be abandoned. One left-wing group, Moveon.org, even made the despicable and outrageous accusation that General Petraeus would try to 'cook the books' to justify the surge when he appeared before Congress.

"One year later, it is clear: the critics of the surge were wrong.

"Had we heeded their advice to retreat from Iraq in 2007, the United States would have suffered a catastrophic defeat in the heart of the Middle East that would have had terrible consequences far beyond Iraq for years to come. Fortunately, we did not abandon General Petraeus and his brave troops, and as a result, the situation in Iraq has completely reversed. We have witnessed substantial progress on the political, economic and military fronts. Our enemies are weaker, and America is safer.

"We congratulate the Iraqi people for coming together in the face of so much adversity to further the peace and prosperity of their country. We honor their sacrifices and share in their desire to continue to build on success.

"The situation in Iraq remains fragile and complex. The war is not over. Our two deadliest enemies -- al Qaeda and Iran -- will seize any opportunities we hand them to come back.

"However, because of the strategic success of the surge, more and more American troops are coming home, not in defeat, but in honor.

"In withdrawing our troops from Iraq, however, it is critical that we do not jeopardize the hard-won gains they have achieved. That means any withdrawal must be based on the recommendations of General Petraeus and our commanders on the ground, not on an arbitrary timeline invented in Washington. Our brave military has fought too hard, and sacrificed too much, for American politicians to throw away the gains they have achieved with an arbitrary timeline.

"What is needed now, therefore, is not more partisan politics over Iraq, but for Democrats and Republicans alike to come together and recognize reality: to acknowledge that the surge was not just a tactical success but a strategic success; to give thanks to our courageous men and women in uniform who made it possible; and to pledge that we will do nothing that might squander these hard-won gains.

"For that reason, we have introduced a bipartisan resolution that recognizes the reality of the strategic success of the surge. We hope that the Senate can unite to take up and adopt this resolution this week, on the one year anniversary of General Petraeus' testimony before Congress and as he prepares to depart Baghdad to take command of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM). The moment has come for the Senate to speak with one voice and admit the strategic success of the surge."
The result? Crickets. They refused to support this Resolution. Why? Because it would show that they were wrong about something. Their inability to acknowledge The Troops has shown that not only do they not support the GWOT that they originally did support, they also do not support the Troops or their Mission. It is all fluffy rhetoric for political gain...political power.

Czarbie, after forced into a corner by his own inability to think on the fly, admitted that the Troop Surge succeeded "beyond our wildest dreams". He has been waffling ever since.

They called the War In Iraq a separate war in the GWOT citing that the "real" war was in Afghanistan forgetting that President Bush stated many times that "we will fight this war on our terms and not the enemy's terms". The United States wrestled control of the war declared against us and fought it and is still fighting it on our terms. Much like McCain-Palin has "stolen" the Czarbie Hope and Change monicker from him, President Bush stole from Al Qaeda and all of the other terrorist groups the When and Where. If that nuance has escaped you, well, more's the pity...for you.

In the WSJ today, in part:
[...] The reality is that success in Iraq has confounded the political left, which placed a huge political bet on our defeat. Senator Reid famously declared the war lost in April 2007. Joe Biden introduced a resolution opposing the surge. And Hillary Clinton said the reports of progress in Iraq required "a willing suspension of disbelief." In the Democratic narrative, our troops in Iraq are victims of a lost cause, not heroes. They're allowed to get maimed and killed, but not to succeed.

Thus Democrats are left to argue that success in Iraq is irrelevant because the real fight against al Qaeda is occurring in Afghanistan. Or that the reduced violence in Iraq has resulted not from the troop surge but from the Sunni Awakening and the retreat of the Sadr militias. [...]

[...] The Lieberman-Graham resolution is a chance for Democrats to show that their support for the troops is more than rhetorical. It changes no policy and in that sense is only symbolic. Yet it is precisely the political symbolism of admitting they were wrong that is stopping the Democratic leadership from letting it come up for a vote before the Senate adjourns. Unfortunately, the last thing that Democrats want to discuss in this election season is success in Iraq. [END]
Indeed. I have been preparing to publish evidence of the complicity of Sen Reid and company in the American casualties amassed during The Reid Clan treasonous rhetoric while emboldening and enabling and encouraging the enemy to advance their political careers. It is beyond shameful.

The Leftinistra Are Destroying the Economy...On Purpose

~Snooper~


Please vote this up at Digital Journal, thanks.

Some of them know it and some are just plain stupid. I don't know which ones scare me the most. The willfully criminal or the willfully ignorant. I have reported on this earlier here and below is more folks chiming in.

Back in 2005, the DNCers blocked the GOPers when they tried to bring this current mess to the forefront and fix it. That is bad on the DNCers. Not to be unexpected but Pelosi denies that the Democrats had anything at all to do with the current mess. Naturally, she is a liar. As the Democrats try once again to rewrite history, we in the Main Street Media are here to stem that tide of dishonesty and flat out fraud. John McCain tried to bring this all to the Nation's attention but the Leftinistra were too busy whoring themselves out for that evil capitalist money thing. And then they dare whine about those damned rich people - which they themselves are. Morons. And then there is Czarbie the Fraud. Back in 205 he was considered to be one of the family of Fannie Mae and has received quite a tidy sum as a pay-off to shut up (video here).

Just in case you don't know this yet, it has been decades of the Leftinistra bleeding this country dry that has created this current financial crisis. The only way, in my opinion, to fix this thing is for every Democrat in Congress were to resign and leave politics forever. Then we MIGHT be able to find some honest non-lifers to fill their slots. We can also dump some damn RINOs because they are Democrats that have infiltrated like a good terrorist would do.

Naturally, the liar Pelosi is trying like crazy to blame Bush...he sure is a busy guy. I think we should put Ted Nugent as Speaker of The House. So far, Ted, McCain and Palin are the only ones that have a positive outlook and are working to turn this crisis on its ear. GWB is trying but...

Naturally, seeing that neither Pelosi or her lap licker Reid knows what to do besides blaming someone else for THEIR created problem, they are set to adjourn. Morons.

As far back as 2003, President Bush brought this current issue up but the Leftinistra would have none of it. They were too busy raking in the cash. Hell CONgress controls the banking rules. Who does the oversight on the alleged oversight pukes? It most certainly cannot be Czarbie because he is deeply and intimately linked to the failed corporations. That dingbat wants trickle up economics and only socialist states have that and just look at those economies! No thanks.

Czarbie says that he has the fix but he is too busy trying to win an losing race to the White House. Right. Country first Barack? Not hardly.

Theoretically, there is going to be bold, sweeping changes. With that news, apparently the market is happier today than it was yesterday and the day before. I am getting sick and tired of the word "change".

More at Memeorandum as the Paulson Plan is said to perhaps cost TRILLIONS...EGADS! Thank a lot you dumb ass Democrats.

Trouncing Moonbats...What The Hell and Why Not?

~Snooper~

There was a report that a Rabii was upset that Czarbie wasn't thrashing McCain or at least further ahead than McCain. Not only is Czarbie NOT thrashing McCain, Czarbie is actually BEHIND McCain. I say this because of the pollsters. When the pollsters which are historically leftist leaning cannot hide the fact that Czarbie is behind, that means that McCain is thrashing Czarbie.

The Rabii:
Once again I've started hearing Blue Staters responding with horror and shock that Obama has not shot McCain out of the water. "How can it be," they ask, "that after 7 years of war, the dramatic and scary economic collapse, growing ecological crisis, and undermining of human rights and civil liberties that Americans are not overwhelmingly rejecting McCain who supported most of the destructive policies of the past and shows no signs of changing them should he be elected? Americans," they go on to say, "must either be stupid, extremely militaristic or racist." [...]
Damn. They really are that dumb. The reason is basic and easy. The DEMOCRAT PARTY and their moronic followers have created this whole thing and THAT is historical fact. Period. End of discussion. Whine about it if you wish but whining won't change the facts readily discernible. Idiots. There must be thousands of words and letters in that article and I just simplified it. They try to explain it away but they cannot. Must suck to be a libtard moonbat moron these days.

Ian Welsh is another moonbat at SmolderingCurPond: these idiots believe taxing the hell out of everyone is the way to fix the economy. The problem with the economy, again simplifying it for these over-educated dolts, is the plethora of socialist programs and entitlement programs that DO NOT work yet we "poor" BILLIONS of dollars into these failed deals - just because. Then they whine about it. Morons. Cut ALL entitlements. Cut ALL socialist programs. Place the areas of responsibility back to the individual States - as our Constitution so dictates - and 90% of these self-induced "issues" will vanish. That was easy.

Then again, we can always count on the idiot Joe Klein to come out every time he can and prove to the world what a complete fool he really is. Must suck for him to wake up every morning knowing he was going to have to look at that jerk in the mirror. He thinks it is patriotic to rape people's funds too and call it patriotic. Moron. He must be the leader of this ignorant group of idiots as well.

Another moonbat here at Dumber and Dumbest Evah seems to be stuck on that Bush-Cheney criminal meme. Simply amazing. They never do offer up what it is exactly anyone did that was illegal. Well, if they refer to that World Court thing, that confirms that the brain dead do walk.

Not Hardly But: VP Switcheroo?

~Snooper~

As previously posted here, we brought the latest rumors that Czarbie was going to dump Biden and bring on Hillary. That way, we could have Czarbie and Czarina. Some thought that I actually believed that. I don;t but the possibility is there because during a season of panic, people do dumb things. Anyway, others DO believe this is going to happen.

Campaign2008 lists 10 reasons why this is going to happen.

DB1000PC lists a bunch of folks that have heard from folks that say that they heard from some others and the beat goes on and on and on. In this election, nothing will surprise me and it shouldn't really surprise you.

It Is Official - The Gang of 10/16/20 Is History

~Snooper~

Good. maybe they will all get unelected. Damn morons. They are to do the bidding of the majority and the majority DEMANDS that they friggin' DRILL DRILL DRILL everywhere and go after ALL OF THE ABOVE. Now we don't have to worry about Nancy's retarded game.

Additional War News

~Snooper~

Well, what do ya know about that? Iran says that its missile fleet can reach ships in the Persian Gulf. ROFLMAO!! Really? We have some missiles that can depart from a field in the US Midwest and arrive downtown Tehran in about an hour or so. Go for it you moron. Idiots. The US Fleet stationed not too far away has enough OOMPH to cremate the entire gnat's ass gulag of Iran also. Piss off Iran. I remember you very well.

The New USSR said it will be selling arms to Iran and the Little Boy Chavez in Venezuela. I suppose the Monroe Doctrine should be strictly enforced and hopefully, it won't take 13 Days.

I am still waiting for someone with a set of balls between their legs to nail Czarbie for the Logan Act violations. Lord knows Melanie Morgan smells blood.

Pakistani scum sucking Taliban (democrat same-same) said they were behind the Barcelona attacks. So, nuke the bastards and be gone with them. For that matter, nuke San Francisco.

I don't know about this but someone seems to think that the New USSR is one step away from irrelevancy. You mean like democrats? Or troll sluts and whores from Canada? Just curious.

Mosul, Iraq opens up its first independent news service.

Zawahiri says no more passwords...LOL! Better late than never. In other news, we are now informed that the USA toppled the Taliban in 1991. I wasn't aware of that but, thanks for the update Al Reuters. Please try and keep up, OK?

General David Petraeus says we can kick-ass wherever we want to or need to...makes no never mind to him.

Sri Lanka says it sank terrorist gunboats and killed some scum suckers. Good. I hope the sharks don't get ill.

16 dumbasses got caught selling arms and equipment to other idiots and anti-Americanists. Whining has begun. I wonder if they had any sympathies towards the terrorists fighting and killing our coalition forces? Ya think? Must be more of those tolerant liberal sycophants. On top of this, we have global cultural jihad right down town Boston, MA. Go friggin' figure. Good thing I don't live there.

Click here to learn of 4 devastating strategies that unhinged and defeated the scumbag AQ in Iraq. For some War porn, click this.

William Ayers, Czarbie's pal, a while back got a gift of rings made from downed US Fighters as a thanks in helping lose the war in Vietnam. They met in Cuba. Nice friend that moron and big-eared asswipe Czarbie has, eh? And, some are wondering if Czarbie's yammering about the Af-Pak war will be honored...by him. Don't hold your breathe for a Marxist to act honorably.

War News of Extreme Interest...To Me Anyway

~Snooper~


I am not much of one for conspiracies. However, knowing what I do know of Iran, I wouldn't doubt this story one bit...and I don't. However, I understand why nothing is being done about it but do not agree.

Iran has been in a proxy war with the United States since 1979, thanks to Jimmy Carter. I was serving back then and I expressly remember rucking up and shipping out. To where is none of your business, actually but, ship out I did. The rest of that story is in my book, well, manuscript.

I ran across this story in two places; STACLU and Radarsite penned by the same author, RG.

Apparently, there is more than enough evidence that Iran had a hefty hand in the 91101 attacks that claimed thousands of lives on our home soil. I can say more but I won't.

We already know that Iran has been arming terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan and we also know that Iran has Troops in both countries fighting coalition forces. This is no secret but isn't talked about for the obvious reasons. I know. And that is all I need.

I am happier than a pig in mud that this has finally breached the sounds of silence

The No Oil Zone - Recent History and #dontgo Lives On

~Snooper~

For quite a while now, at least since 01 AUG 08 anyway, the GOP has been pressuring the fraud Nancy to have an up or down vote on the American Energy Act. But, she has better things to do and went gallivanting around at tax payer's expense attending her book sales events. her book was a flop, by the way, and so is she.

At any rate, no pun intended, fuel costs have sky rocketed and have fallen. I think they call that market fluctuations but I call it an unnecessary CF. For a very long time, the DNC leadership has fought every effort to get the American People free of foreign oil. They have placed restrictions on where and when to drill. They have stopped all efforts to build new refineries. They have stated that oil companies can drill in certain areas but no one knows if there is any oil in those designated areas. More than likely, there isn't any but it looks good when the permissions are given. In the long run, this policy of theirs has come around to bite them where they sit.

I have a small collection of posts here and a vast collection located here.

Suffice it to say, Pelosi has been had. The #dontgo Movement which was borne the day Nancy pulled her little stunt in DC has beat her and has placed her on notice. The American People are demanding that she cease and desist with her blathering about saving the planet. That isn't in her job description the last time I looked.

Catch the wave at Memeorandum...

Suitably Flip says that oil is basically free now but you will have to go there and see for yourself. I thought that statement was odd until I sat down and read the article. CBS News tried to stem the tide of bleeding Democrats but that didn't work either. It was along the lines that, and I paraphrase, "Hey! Fuel costs are coming down now so why drill?" That dog don't hunt. To add insult to injury, ABC soon follows the next day announcing that the drill ban has been lifted by CONgress. For stupid people, that sounds good. For those of us that have been following this issue since the early 1970's, we see it for what it is. A huge lie.

Hell. Even President Bush knows all about the #dontgo Movement and knows that we will not accept the Gang of 10 crap that grew into the Gang of 16 and eventually the Gang of 20 before it died a painful death. President Bush said that he would veto the damn thing that Nancy passed. Well, he didn't say "the damn thing" but you get the picture. And, no, we won't accept Gas Stamps either.

When nancy called the drilling issue a hoax, I cracked up. Now, President Bush is telling Congress that their "deal" is the hoax. What nancy has done is nothing. Her precious bill is nothing more than more of the same. So much for Change. And, even though the moratoriums for the most part expire at the end of September 2008, her bill would be nearly a mirror image of those moratoriums.

What I don't get is why Nancy is pretending that she doesn't know where natural gas comes from. I could go somewhere with that but I'm not - at this time. Of course she knows. She is in bed with T Boone Pickens in one of the biggest, if not the biggest, land and water grabs that would make the Robber Barons of yore ecstatic! T Boone Pickens has stated many times that we need to do ALL OF THE ABOVE when it comes to energy freedom and the GOP's American Energy Act does just that.

However, Nancy and her idiots are doing their best to make the energy crisis larger, deeper and more costly to the American People. This is simply unacceptable. She is purposefully making it worse to in some way blame President Bush when he vetoes the bill. Be that as it may, we will not allow that to go unpunished.

Redstate has been concerned about Congress listening to 70% of the American People that are demanding lower fuel costs and by God, it looks like they are. Well, at least the GOP is - for the most part - except for the idiot RINOs here and there. And just what in the hell is an energy freeze? Oh. Wait. I know what that is. I have written quite a few articles on that. Nancy doesn't want to drill because she is heavily invested with T Boone Pickens and her husband plopped down a tidy sum. I wonder if there is any conflict of interest going on there. Her bill pretty much bans drilling but promotes renewable fuels which is YEARS away from coming on line. What a fool she is for thinking that we don't know these things.

Yid is calling the bill a phony bill and he is 100% correct on that. Yid also said that Nancy "snookered" us out of our oil...again. Speaking of snookered...I distinctly remember Nancy saying at one time that the oil belongs to the American People. If that is so, why, then, do we not have it yet?

Weekly Standard also sees this as Pelosi Hoax. Texas Fred wants us to do something - like go after - about the Bakken Oil Formation up in the Dakotas and Montana. Hell. I have known about it for almost forever.

We have so much oil under our own soil it is mental instability causing us not to go after it. Yes, we need alternative energy sources but doing nothing doesn't fix the damn problem and Weasel Zippers calls BS. He doesn't like Nancy either.

The most incompetent person in American political history, Harry Reid, has been saying that is it just too hard to get the energy crisis fixed. He says that there are too many ideas floating around and I suppose that just confuses the hell out of him. I sure hope he gets unelected one day.

Atlas calls Nancy's Hoax Bill a stunt. Indeed. She calls it fiddling while Americans burn - a Prius being sold as a Porsche. Jim Harper said that it appears to be quite evident that the cure for the energy crisis is lightning...tongue in cheek. The bill was introduced late at night and passed the next day and is so full of holes that they hope above hope that someone else will have to deal with the energy crisis at a later date. Idiots all.

Apparently, it is so hard to ALLOW the American Energy Act to be voted on, there just be yet another adjournment. This is unbelievable. They are claiming that no one knows what to do.

HOW ABOUT DRILLING YOU MORONS?

Like McCain stated in Arlington, VA.:
I’m happy to be introduced by Governor Palin, but I can’t wait until I introduce her to Washington. Let me offer an advance warning to the big spending, greedy, do nothing, me first, country second crowd in Washington and on Wall Street: change is coming.
AMEN. As an effort at comical relief or levity for a moment, please check out Suitably Flip. Some Congress Critters are talking about selling fuel door-to-door. OK. Back to seriousness.

The Gang of 20 said that they wouldn't offer any energy solutions either because they are tired of talking about it. Well, that is how I read it anyway and the idiocy of the Chief Gomer, Barack, is just too painful to acknowledge. While the Gang of 20 surrenders, the American People suffer due to the inability of our CONgress to give a damn about the people they have sworn to serve. Imagine that. It's just too damn hard to do their jobs because we are watching them. It is so much better for them when we don't know what in the hell they are up to until it is too late. Sorry, pals. Those days are HISTORY. Because of that, the Gang of 20 input is dead in the water for now.
The bill was a high tax (Biden-esque patriotic!), bogus drilling nightmare.
I say: Hooah!
Ace says, “Huzzah!”
It’s one less GOP-supported sellout we have to worry about.
For now…
Morons. Who elected those idiots anyway?

BE GONE WITH THEM!!

American Politics and The Whiners On the Left Part 1

~Snooper~

It just isn't fair, dammit! The Democrats were supposed to be winning and here comes along that old white haired dude that is too old to even know what a computer is and that chick from Alaska that no one knows about or has even heard from her. Alaska? Where is that again?


As the Czarbie Camp decries that he reaches across the aisle, I have to laugh because I have been adamant about not reaching across the aisle (unless to smack somebody) and it has been shown in a study that McCain reaches across 55% of the time to Czarbie's 13%. So much for that Change thing.

In a Czarbie waaaaahmbulance video, he whines about being exposed for the slug that he is. Cry me a river you Marxist.

In the Washington Times, David Limbaugh brings us an interesting expose in regards to authenticity versus charisma of Czarbie. Seeing that he has no authenticity or credibility to speak of, the only thing he can do is talk like he knows something. Naturally, he must use a teleprompter because if he doesn't, when he tries to refute something he always confirms whatever it is he is trying to refute. I find that oddly curious. Evidently he missed those classes where thinking before one speaks was taught.

Instead of rational debate, as the left proclaim to be after, they bring in the race cards and if one doesn't vote for Obama because he is black, they are racists. That sounds like a racist remark but, what do I know? I was always under the impression that one was to consider the qualifications of candidates and not their race. Silly me. I would vote for Michael Steele in a nanosecond.

In some circles it has gotten so blatantly viral, this election cycle has the folks (socialists and Marxists alike) at the Daily Kos proclaiming that they have the most accurate polling system in the known universe. I wonder if they know that the Czarbie Camp is in bed with ACORN, the voter fraud experts - after all, they run the outfit that commits voter fraud on a regular basis. And, they work to get Democrats elected. Why they feel it necessary to cheat to win causes me to think that their parents didn't teach them any morals.

Other Czarbie supporters like Freedom of Speech so much that they use that "crutch" (to use their terminology) to stifle others in their constitutional rights of Freedom of Speech. Does anyone see that as a double standard besides me? This happens quite often. There is no end in sight it would seem and I find it disheartening, actually, that a Presidential Aspirant would actually promote and approve of such activities. The Times' Swampland is rife with such vitriolic buffoonery.

Jules Crittenden has a fantastic piece on the Obamathink. Kind of scary, actually but still a great piece. Therein, one will find all manner of left-side whining and Debbie brings us an interesting detail of the THE UNIONS OF SOVIET-STYLE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS.

If one really wants to hear the Leftinistra whine, just question Czarbie's executive experience. Holy cow! I tell them to calm down on that one. It isn't our fault if Czarbie doesn't have any. If they are going to whine about it, go call Czarbie and whine at him. He's the one that lies and says that he has everything it takes to lead the most prestigious and powerful nation on this planet and he obviously doesn't. Take a chill pill me lads. I would tell them that they need to pray about it but, there are too many in their number that pretend to be Christians. Most, in the end run checking, are atheists. When the button to the left was created and published, I could hear the gut wrenching wailing from Texas.

And, by the way, Czarbie is the largest whiner on the left side at the moment. He is trying to get the Department of Justice to stop those mean ads that expose him. That sounds like poor sportsmanship to me on top of abuse of power. I thought that he was all for the Constitutional rights of Americans. So, here he is trying to stop people from expressing themselves? What is that all about? They turned him down. I bet he and his folks used up cartons of tissues over that one. No Witch Hunts Czarbie. Sorry. Again, it isn't our fault that he has a friend named William Ayers of the Weather Underground, is it?

Another way to get the leftists all atwitter is to mention all of the other dubious associations with known anti-Americanists. Just a small hint of them and the Tear Brigades slither from their dark, rank spider holes. There are so many ways to set the whiners off. It is due, mostly, to their emotional instability. They are so emotional that now, seeing that their childish antics are backfiring on a regular basis, they have decided to fix it by getting worse. Odd that.

As we witness the DNC nosedive, the shrillness and ugliness of losers becomes a clamor not easily ignored. And, as we chronicle the Czarbie breakdown(s), the din resulting is quite entertaining if not pathetic. Does anyone really know who Czarbie is? We already know what he is but, just who in the hell is he?

Stop whining, please. It isn't our fault that the American People see Czarbie for what he is and that his campaign is in disarray. He did it all by his lonesome. Well, maybe Czarina had something to do about that while McCain sat back and watched he and she go at it like two idiot Identity Politics hounds that they are. Get over it. It isn't our fault that Czarbie is a socialist looter. Is it? Go whine on his lap.

One of these days, idiots like this will just scurry off back to their spider holes or even fall into that Abyss of Obscurity. They remind me of that KKK Byrd character that waves a copy of the Constitution around like he knows what it says about anything. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that the media is in Czarbies hinder parts and he in theirs. As he tries to undermine his own country for political gain, the media is right there with the louse.

Please stand by for Part 2. I have no idea how many Parts this will be but I have had enough of chronicling the whining Leftinistra for the time being.

The McCain-Palin Tsunami and the DNC's Abyss of Obscurity

~Snooper~

Please vote this up at Digital Journal (slightly modified for their sensitivities)

Nothing does this DAV's wounded heart better than watching the utter and complete destruction, self-imposed, of the DNC. For decade upon decade, the enemies of Freedom, personal responsibility, honesty, integrity and morality have systematically tried to, and have widely succeeded, destroy this Nation which many have given the ultimate sacrifice to preserve.

Regardless of the howling, the wailing and gnashing of teeth to the contrary, this Nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. Are we perfect? Hardly. However, the Founding Fathers knew that they were also not perfect but knew who was. They strove for perfection realizing the goal would never be met. We as humans can never reach that Utopian perch of perfection. Ever.

The proponents of Utopia are willfully ignorant of what that is and means. Sir Thomas Moore wrote the book "Utopia" in 1516. The foundation of Utopia stems from the Greek "ou topas" which literally translates into "not place" which is transliterated into No Place. It is fine and dandy to dream of such a place but when reality settles in and honesty is allowed to come forward, Utopia or the Utopian Ideology cannot exist because Utopia is No Place. I would rather be someplace in reality than pretending the perfect world of No Place exists. Such is where the DNC dwells...smack dab in the middle of nowhere.

What does the Founding Fathers and Utopia have to so with the McCain-Palin Tsunami have to do with anything? Everything. The DNC leadership has the propensity to ignore issues, pass blame elsewhere, will not accept responsibility, will not admit or acknowledge their own mistakes and shortcomings. They have a tendency to ignore things long enough in the hopes that whatever it is that has a possibility to derail them will merely vanish. They have the Utopian Reality Syndrome and it is a lethal case. They live in a realm of No Place where No One is at fault because Everything and Nothing co-exist in the middle of Nowhere. No Place has No Borders and Everything and Nothing means Something, subject to wind direction.

For instance, Patriotism has now been redefined as paying taxes (video here). Joe Biden has pretty much set up the image that if you don't pay all the taxes he thinks you should pay, your Patriotism is waning and lacks what it takes to be a Patriot.

Once again, the DNC has turned their backs on the man of whom they say they greatly admire and that wold be President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Among other things so stated in his inaugural address, he said this: (video here) (HT Jon Sanders)
In a famous moment of American oratory, President John F. Kennedy during his inaugural address urged "my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

Such a "country first" message resounded then, during the height of the Cold War, and it still echoes in civics classrooms across the nation. Meanwhile, the candidate looking to become the next revered Democratic president has been traveling the country sneering at the technological shortfalls of McCain (who answered what he could do for his country) and entreating his fellow Americans to ask, beg, organize and demand what their country under him could do for their groups. [...]
As Gateway asks, "Can we call them socialists yet?"
Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do for wealthier Americans.

The Republican campaign for president calls the tax increases their Democratic opponents propose "painful" instead of patriotic.

Under the economic plan proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, people earning more than $250,000 a year would pay more in taxes while those earning less — the vast majority of American taxpayers — would receive a tax cut.

"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people," Biden said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: "It's time to be patriotic... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut."
Seeing that it has been the federal government that had dug this whole do to taxes, taxes and taxes, how in the hell can they expect us to pay even more to further their socialist crap? Another President in another time once said that government was the problem and it still is.

Joe Biden and Barack Obama are sycophants of the socialist ignorance running amok in this country. Utopia does not exist and there are no roads that lead to No Place.
