USA Under Attack from Within

It is painful to watch the destruction of a country.  I feel that pain each time I read about another constitutional amendment under attack.  I feel the pain each time another of our freedoms—freedoms fought and died for by our brave military—is stripped away from us.  I feel pain every time the race-baiters try to tear us apart, and each time I hear a wealthy celebrity publically call our great country a racist nation.

It would be so easy to allow myself to sink into defeat; to swallow the MSM’s love affair with the current administration.  But, to do that is to give up on the American people.  We have the power to change the course of the USA.  It’s up to us to remind congress and the president that ours is a government “of the people, for the people, and by the people.”

And speaking of the people, who are ignored by the president, I just saw this from Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer:

Last night just before going on his summer vacation, Obama DENIED federal assistance for the Yarnell fire that destroyed more than 120 homes and claimed the lives of 19 firefighters.

Here’s my full statement regarding the President’s denial:

I am deeply troubled by the Obama Administration’s decision to deny much-needed recovery assistance in the wake of Arizona’s deadliest wildfire. This designation would have provided critical aid to citizens most impacted by the fire.

The State of Arizona continues to mourn this tragedy, which took the lives of nineteen of our bravest first responders. While no amount of federal assistance could ever ease the pain of such an extraordinary loss, it would have provided significant financial relief to Yarnell and Peeples Valley. Local residents are under enough emotional stress as they work to pick up the pieces and put their communities back together. Wondering how or if they will recover their losses should be the last of their worries.

In the days after the fire, I appreciated the call I received from President Obama, during which he pledged to support our state during its time of great need. I was even more encouraged when Vice President Biden reiterated that commitment at the memorial service for the fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots. With today’s denial of the state’s request, Arizonans are left questioning what help they were willing to give.

I was hopeful the federal government would recognize the exceptionally devastating circumstances surrounding this tragedy, and support Arizona’s request.

I will review our options regarding an appeal of this misguided decision. I will continue to do everything in my power to assist in that effort.
Rest assured, that is a pledge that will not be broken.

Lord and Savior – Come on Jamie

Few things leave me speechless, well almost speechless. But come on Jamie Fox, be serious and put down the Kool Aid

ACTOR JAMIE FOXX HAILS “OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, BARACK OBAMA”

There are some consequences to cultivating a creepy cult of personality in order to win elections.  For example, there’s always the danger of your more… energetic supporters going overboard in their worship of Dear Leader.

Such was the case at the Soul Train Awards last Sunday, when actor Jamie Foxx declared, “It’s like church over here!  First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior, Barack Obama.”  He then led the audience in chanting the President’s name.

Oh yes he did —

Labor Unions Profit vs Business Profit

It seems most people are talking about the situation with Hostess, Twinkies and the labor union.

A trip to the store this week – made it clear that people are stocking up on Hostess products. Two local stores – and there were no Hostess products on the shelves.

Monday we heard the labor union and Hostess would be in mediation today – and people started making jokes about the people who stocked up on Twinkies and the people who had them listed on Ebay. Surely the union and management could work this out — they had been thrown a life line from the court and Twinkies would survive.

Well…. maybe not.

BREAKING NEWS – Hostess Brands and one of its biggest unions failed to reach an agreement in private mediation Tuesday, the company tells FOX Business. The move could pave the way for an ultimate liquidation for the snack maker. 

Let me preface this next comment and say the conclusion is based on various information I’ve read online — it seems there are plenty of operational issues with the company. It also seems that conditions from labor contracts have made it necessary to impliment a number of very costly operational decisions.

So – let’s see if I have this right…..

The unions make demands on the business and the business has to make changes in order to meeet these demands.

So a struggling business that has filed for bankruptcy protection a number of times – is now shuttering its plants because they cannot reach an agreement with the unions.

Hmmm – and 18,000 people are out of work.

I see that as a loss for unions, workers, business and the consumer.

A quick question — do unions understand that when their demands cause a business to lose money, they can not stay in business. Which means they cannot employee people.

What do you think?

Four More Years?

There are at least 49% of the people in the US scratching their head and wondered how in the… world, President Obama was re-elected. It defies most logic.

Here is an opinion piece about this conundrum… I like Judge Napolitano, he definitely speaks his mind…

By

Only in America can a president who inherits a deep recession and whose policies have actually made the effects of that recession worse get re-elected. Only in America can a president who wants the bureaucrats who can’t run the Post Office to micromanage the administration of every American’s health care get re-elected. Only in America can a president who kills Americans overseas who have never been charged or convicted of a crime get re-elected. And only in America can a president who borrowed and spent more than $5 trillion in fewer than four years, plans to repay none of it and promises to borrow another $5 trillion in his second term get re-elected.

What’s going on here?
