Constitution Pt. 12

February 26, 2010

Article II.

Section 1. The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected as follows

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

[The Electors shall meet in their respective States,and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a list of all Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse from them by Ballot the Vice President.] (Changed by the Twelfth Amendment)

The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of the President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

[ In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.] (Changed by the Twenty-Fifth Amendment)

The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the Following Oath or Affirmation:-“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

That’s the end of this Section. Does it get any simpler than that. Apparently the last part was too difficult when they swore in Obama and apparently he didn’t listen to what he was affirming. If you have any questions be sure to put them in the comments and I will get to them as soon as possible.

Cinema

February 25, 2010

You have a night off so you decide to go out for dinner and a movie. Sounds like fun and what can it hurt? You have a few dollars left after paying the bills so you decide to get a new DVD. No harm done right? You turn on the news and there he is. The latest socialist out of Hollywood spewing his commie crap all over your screen and doing his level best to take away a little more of your freedom. And you just paid for his piece of crap movie. How do you feel now?

Are you beginning to get the picture. You can’t go to the Tea Party on Saturday afternoon and then go and promote these peoples communist agenda Saturday night. You just can’t. It’s counterproductive.

I used to like Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel, until they did their Obama tour to raise money for the commie. I used to like Lewis Black, until he took his serious left turn. Now I won’t even leave the radio channel on. What’s more I take the channel off my push button. If I have the opportunity I tell the radio or TV station why I did what I did. A radio station in my area just went from music to talk. They are conservative too. Put one in my win column. I put it back on my button.

I’m not trying to tell you what to do, I’m just trying to get you to think about what you really want. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

Disappointment

February 24, 2010

There’s a lot of talk about Scot Brown being a disappointment. I don’t know how you feel but personally I expected a lot more. Of course I based my thinking on the thought that anyone who drives an old truck must be all good. I suppose I should have been considering the obvious, he’s a Republican from Massachusetts.

I guess he’s better than a Kennedy but here’s the thing. The Founding Fathers envisioned a congress where the average guy would leave his productive job and go “serve” in the congress and then go back home to his productive job. I read where the average salary in America today is $40,000.00. Who can afford to get elected on that kind of money? I will venture to say that we haven’t had an “average guy” in congress for many moons.

The type of jackal that runs for office today is normally backed by many a pocket-book all looking to get fatter, not skinnier. By the time an “average guy” gets in office he owes so many favors that he feels obligated to honor that he will inevitably produce votes like Mr. Brown’s “jobs bill” vote. He should be the poster boy for campaign finance reform.

Here’s a quick overview of my plan for campaign finance reform. Nobody spends more than $100,000.00. NOBODY! Not the Pres, nobody. No donation can exceed $100.00. This means all donations, corporate, personal, organization. The NRA can give you no more than $100.00. The SEIU can give you no more than $100.00. GM, GE, Mobil, McDonald’s, Fred Farkel, the girl up the street, the homeless guy on the corner, all no more than $100.00. If you can’t find 1,000 donations maybe you shouldn’t be running. All monies must be donated, none of your own.

Hey just a quick shot from the hip. Maybe one of you “average guys” out there can draft something up and introduce it. Probably not because congress has become a wealth building endeavor hasn’t it? That’s right, they’re rich when they go in and they’re even wealthier when they come out. Plus they usually have brokered a six figure income consulting some super-corporation after retirement. A retirement funded by the American people. What a scam. Oh well, until next time, screw environmentalists.

The Big Lie

February 23, 2010

Many times in my life I have noticed this tactic but apparently Hitler wrote it down in his book, “Mein Kampf”. You see Hitler was a socialist and he learned all the tricks very well. I have not read Hitler’s book but the other day Rush Limbaugh said it was in Volume One, Chapter Ten, “The Big Lie”. Basically you just tell a lie so big that nobody can conceive that you would be able to make it up.

The trickery doesn’t end there. I don’t know if this was in Hitler’s book or if it came from Alinsky or somewhere else but the next stage of the big lie is that you repeat it over and over until it is accepted as fact. I know this is true because I have experienced it first hand. I enjoy good tobacco and I have for many, many years. When the libs started screeching about it causing cancer I was all ears. I waited for the data to prove this. It never came. It still hasn’t. If you can prove me wrong please do, but C. Everett Coop saying it doesn’t make it so.

The next stage is to get louder and more obnoxious each time you retell the lie (ala Rob Reiner). Libs are very good at this. Take Algore. Please. Actually Algore has been so scarce lately that Glenn Beck put out an Amber Alert on him the other day. But seriously folks, Algore has been spewing his global warming BS for how long now? He got so loud and obnoxious that he made a shockumentary.

As you can see the big lie is alive and well in socialist America. You need to be well aware of it and shout it down at every opportunity. I know Beck and Limbaugh are not going to go on air and say that the tobacco thing is a lie but I have a lot less to lose and I would like to go on record now to call it a big lie that I am sick of hearing. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Prescriptions

February 22, 2010

I would like to put forth a theory that I have on why you can’t afford your prescriptions. It works something like this. Will you concede that dope pushers don’t like competition? Are they always having turf wars and such? Why should that be any different with the organized and legal pushers.

Think, if you will for a moment, back in time. Back to the sixties. Back to the seventies. When filthy hippies were pushing dope on every street corner. They were pretty much harmless and you had to know who they were and approach them. For some reason laws were enacted that treated these people like stone cold murderers. Twenty years in the pen for a small amount of weed. Have you heard of these cases? Why would we do that to a filthy hippie?

Next to follow were the natural cures and herbal remedies. Why have these things come under such scrutiny? We made laws and licensing so cumbersome and difficult that natural healers are almost all gone. How come? Did you ever try to get a natural remedy from your doctor? No go. They just will not do it. Do you know why? They won’t even give you old-time tried and true things such as morphine or meperidine.

Here’s my theory. The filthy hippies went away because big drugs didn’t like the competition. How else would such draconian laws get enacted against such worthless members of society? The natural remedies are a little more complex so follow along closely. A naturally occurring substance such as opium or marijuana is not subject to the taxing system that synthesized or man-made products are, so now the gubmint has a stake in it. In addition big drugs can’t put the healthy profit margin on them that they do on man-made crap, for research and development I’m told. Thus they outlaw the natural alternative.

Good plan, huh? Hey look into it for yourself. You’ll find the same brick walls and ignorance that I did. I once had a doctor tell me that he didn’t know what the product he was prescribing for me actually did beyond what the salesman told him. WTF?

Constitution Pt. 11

February 19, 2010

Section 10. No State shall enter into any treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it’s inspection Laws: and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the use of the Treasury of the United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Controul of the Congress.

No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

That was Section 10. Fairly straight forward. Please put any questions in the comments and I will do my best to answer them.

The Beat Goes On

February 18, 2010

Ever since Algore said the science is settled I knew there was more than a problem. I am still waiting for the evidence that first hand cigarette smoke kills much less second-hand. That’s right, back in the seventies I remember them making the manufacturers put a warning on the label but I don’t remember any science to back it up just a lot of mouthy libs screeching crap. If cigarette smoke kills why doesn’t wood and coal smoke kill?

Anyway, here’s some truth for you. A Senate Minority report about hundreds of scientists dissent over global warming. Dr. Hendrik Tennekes says, “I protest vigorously the idea that the climate reacts like a home heating system to a changed setting of the thermostat: just turn the dial, and the desired temperature will soon be reached.” My sentiments exactly.

Since ABC, CBS, NBC and the rest of the libs are in Algore’s pocket it falls to an Indian magazine to print the truth. And not only do scientists think it’s a scam but meteorologists as well. Rick Montgomery with the Kansas City Star wrote a piece about what they had to say. Mike Thompson, a meteorologist at FOX News, said, “…there are agendas at play, and it has undermined the credibility of climate science.” Meteorologist John Coleman of San Diego called it the greatest scam in history.

The debate rages on with some meteorologists still supporting the theory of man-made global warming but I tell you the science is far from settled. It’s a lie of epic proportions and its goal is the loss of your freedoms and money. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

EPA

February 17, 2010

If Nixon was indeed a crook the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the reason. He proposed this cluster that hung its shingle out in December of 1970. This is one hack outfit and I don’t ever recall anything good coming out of it. I don’t expect anything, and the fact that my tax dollars support it sickens me.

The EPA is responsible for most of the BS to come down the loss of freedom pike. All that emission crap strapped to your car that reduces your fuel economy and horsepower are a direct result of this group. Unleaded gas, a perfectly worthless addition to the scene is their baby. Ethanol, the crap of the new millennium, is also a product of their nimble minds. None of this does any good and all of it is detrimental yet the agency continues.

Their latest edict, that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, is quite possibly one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. The fact that greenhouse gases do not even exist aside, carbon dioxide is an integral part of our true eco system. The plants need it. They breath it in. They will die without it. Have you ever looked at the picture that they use to describe the greenhouse effect? It’s like a comic, a bad one. For an uplifting story on this subject check out how Virginia is handling it. And as always, screw environmentalists.

You know, a good place to cut the federal budget might be the EPA. Just thinking out loud here. What have they really given us for our $62 billion or whatever ridiculous amount of tax dollars they suck up every year? (You try to decipher the federal budget.)

It’s All About The Benjamins

February 16, 2010

What have I been saying for years? Follow the Benjamins. This global warming scam is nothing more than a plan to fleece the public and sure enough somebody else noticed. They didn’t just notice they kept on following.

Remember when our Congress bailed out AIG? They had to. Their insurance and retirement was tied up with them. Well the BBC has a similar situation going on with the global warming scam. That’s right their pension is tied up in the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) which is heavily into the United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) who is wrapped up with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) who was recently exposed as a fraud.

As you can see it looks bad for his Lordship’s investments. As a result the BBC has been censoring climate skeptics. What does that sound like? A nice little article about this by John O’Sullivan at Climategate can be seen here. Mr. O’Sullivan goes on to name names of organizations such as some Catholic Diocese’ and other Churches that may have a conflict of interest here as well. Who isn’t capitalizing on this scam? Just you and me? If you have the time be sure to check out Mr. O’Sullivans article at Climategate. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

No Global Warming

February 15, 2010

Here’s the thing, I am not saying that man does not contribute to global warming. I’m saying that global warming does not even exist. It’s a lie. It’s a hoax. It’s a scam designed to part the stupid and gullible from their money. Yes. Here it is. Out in the open and clearly stated. There is no global warming. I’ll take it a step farther for you. There is no climate change.

I don’t know if you are seeing it here for the first time, I hope so. But I do know that a lot of people out there are so afraid of being wrong that they won’t come out and make any statements like this, Limbaugh included. They say that man does not contribute to global warming or some other guarded statement of that type. But the fact is that there is no climate change. None.

The hockey stick graph is a lie, read about that here. If you are very into facts and calculations here is a video by a real Nobel Prize winner that will show that carbon dioxide could not contribute to global warming if such a thing existed. And this guy gets to my point with his question, “Just exactly what unusual, unexpected temperature anomaly are we trying to explain?” That, my friends, is exactly what I am saying. Nothing unusual is happening here. It has all happened before. Until next time, screw environmentalists.
