Another Government Ponzi Scheme


During the State of the Union speech, the President floated the idea that Americans should invest their retirement savings in the Government of the United States, presumably to remove their savings from the ravages of market forces.  This is the MyRA program.

Does anyone think that the Government can do anything better than the private market?  May I refer you to the Healthcare.gov debacle, and you can fully understand my skepticism.

Let’s face it – the government of the United States is broke.  Otherwise, why is the debt limit being raised without much resistance from either party?  The can continues to be kicked down the road, but that road will eventually run out.  Sooner or later, financial institutions will refuse to loan the United States Government any more money, and that is when the fertilizer will strike the rotating air moving device.

What will most likely happen is something similar to what I wrote 11 months ago in the post “Cyprus in the US?”.

The Government of Cyprus has decided a one-time tax (i.e., legalized confiscation) of funds from any account over 100,000 Euros is necessary to raise funding to secure a 10-Billion Euro bailout package from the European Union.

Of course, many of you will poo-poo the idea of our government seizing our assets to pay off the national debt like what Cyprus is doing.  Folks, I will tell you right now that I believe that the groundwork is being laid to do just that.  Consider the following:

The ObamaCare legislation authorizes the IRS to confiscate funds directly from your accounts if you do not have a health plan that meets the requirements of the ObamaCare mandate.  This has been upheld by the Supreme Court because ObamaCare is now classified as a tax.

The Supreme Court has already heard cases concerning Eminent Domain which state that private property can be seized and used for the public use.  I can fully see where these laws & decisions could be used and extended to bail the government out of the financial mess that generations of irresponsible Congresscritters have put us in.  After all, the government is for the public good, right?

And what property would that be?  Our 401Ks, Regular & Roth IRAs, and any investments that we would have.  I have it on good authority that the politicians are salivating at the billions of dollars tied up in the tax-deferred savings accounts, and would love nothing more to get their hands on that money to fund whatever special project they have.

A post over at Joe the Plumber’s website Joe for America also describes that our savings are at risk.  It states that the model that EU regulators used to confiscate American’s retirement savings as reported by Reuters is being considered by our Government:

In a nutshell, and in Reuters’ own words, “the savings of the European Union’s 500 million citizens could be used to fund long-term investments to boost the economy and help plug the gap left by banks since the financial crisis, an EU document says.”

The solution? “The Commission will ask the bloc’s insurance watchdog in the second half of this year for advice on a possible draft law “to mobilize more personal pension savings for long-term financing”, the document said.”

Mobilize, once again, is a more palatable word than, say, confiscate.

And it goes on to state that Congress has been considering these actions since 2010 and as recently as 2012!  Follow the links in the post for more information than what I could possibly write about in this post.

I can fully believe that our Government will grasp at the apple of promise of more money.  After all, over the objections of multiple citizens at multiple townhalls, the Affordable Healthcare Act was passed with the promise that Government knows best.  As we all are finding out by personal or reported experiences, it’s not all that it was promised and sold to the American people.

As stated in the following paragraphs:

A few years ago the government of the United States of America nationalized nearly 1/6th of our economy when they took over the health care system with forced mandates. In the process they essentially took control of $1.6 trillion in yearly industry revenues.

But that’s nothing compared to private savings. The total amount of retirement assets in America, including 401k, IRA and savings accounts is around $21 trillion. With our national debt coincidentally approaching the same, the government sees big money and potentially a way out of our country’s fiscal disaster.

This will start voluntarily with the MyRA and other state-sponsored programs. But when not enough Americans are making it their patriotic duty to turn over their funds to their government, they’ll mandate compliance with the stroke of a pen just as they did with the Patient Affordable Care Act.

And just like Obamacare it will be enforced by the barrel of a gun. Failure to comply will mean confiscation without recourse and prison time.

Be afraid, my friends, very afraid… 

Look at what our Executive Branch is doing by Executive Orders, and Congress is doing with legislation, and it becomes rapidly apparent that our Government is out of control.  We The People must elect leaders that will restore this country to the Freedoms that our Founders envisioned!!

Otherwise, you had better figure out what your Plan B is, and that’s going to become your Plan A.

This just won’t do folks….Time for a change!


Okay, I think that I have just about had it with all these stupid politicians who give in the the liberal idea that we MUST raise our debt ceiling as it is the only way to keep America from defaulting on her debt. NO IT ISN’T and any kindergartener knows this. You keep adding to a debt that is already huge and can never be paid back in any of our lifetimes is insane and raising it is just plain stupid, having a lack of a better word for it.

All we are doing is passing off a debt that in the beginning didn’t exist because the government paid off it’s debt yearly and didn’t pass it off to the next generations to deal with.

That is where this government is totally out of step with reality here. All they are doing is spending money that doesn’t exist yet. Can’t we get it through our thick skulls that this is not sustainable and never will be?

I am getting sick and tired of all the “HOOPLA” that comes out of Washington every few months that says something has to be done about the debt ceiling, and then they turn and do just what they say they wouldn’t, and raise it yet again.

Mitch McConnell said a month or so ago, that raising the debt ceiling without something in there to cut spending and cut the debt sometime in the future would be irresponsible, and he said it…then did it. So that means folks, people like McConnell, Boehner, Obama, Reid, Pelosi and all the others in Washington who can’t stop spending other people’s money and money that hasn’t even come into existence yet, need to go.

For the sake of our children’s futures, our country’s future and the future of America in general, this is the only option open to us. We have to cut spending, downsize government, take the bureaucracy and get rid of it, and go back to the Constitutional government that was formed when this country started, or this country has NO FUTURE. PERIOD. This isn’t scare-mongering as the left so loves to say, this is the God’s absolute truth.

You cannot spend more than you take in because it isn’t sustainable. PERIOD! We have to start using our brains for something other than cannon fodder for the demise of our future. That is what McConnell, and the rest that I listed above believe. Time to make a change, or our change will be made for us,……and none of us are going to like what is coming.

No amount of political posturing and lying is going to save us from what is coming, if we don’t do it first.

Right now we have two avenues open to us for saving this country. ONE, do what I said here, and two, complete REVOLUTION. And I am afraid if we don’t do the first, the second is inevitable.

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us to do the right thing.

Is This A Nation…


…of laws, or a nation of men?  Specifically, is this nation governed by the laws of the land, or by the whims of a person or persons?  This, my friends, is a question that Robert and I have frequently written about in various ways, and the answer scares the Hell out of both of us.  To whit:

Judge jury and executioner - A One Man Constitution

“…we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.  I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.  I can use that pen to sign Executive Orders and take Executive Actions and Administrative Actions that move the ball forward….

This is how far our fair Republic has gone the way of so many other countries – we have a person in charge that thumbs his nose at the Constitution, and rules by Executive Order.  The part that is frustrating is that the other elected legislative bodies of our government are doing nothing to stop this breach of law.

Diana West of Townhall.com published an article entitledA Nation of Laws, Not Men, Must Impeach Obama.”  The following are excerpts from that article:

For many Americans, living through the Obama era day-by-day, executive order by executive order, 100 regulations by 100 regulations (there were 80,000 pages of new regulations in 2013 alone), our nation’s transformation becomes so much enveloping static. Yes, there are shrieks and screams (over Obamacare’s rollout, for instance), but mostly people seem to shut out the background noise of an aggressively collectivizing government doing business. Outrages against the Constitution clank and sputter — What? The executive branch can’t write legislation! — but they never really backfire on Obama. His poll numbers dip, yes. White noise ensues.

Barack Obama, the government’s chief executive, is seizing powers that belong to the legislative branch. He’s not the first president to do so; not by a long shot. That’s also part of the ambivalence problem. Obama fits an accepted historical mode of abuse exemplified, for example, by the even more dictatorial FDR. Meanwhile, as Obama’s defenders correctly note, Obama, having issued 168 “decrees,” ranks on the low end among modern presidents. What distinguishes Obama’s fiats in our time, however, as Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told CNSNews.com, is that Obama “has repeatedly made use of executive orders to change statute, to change law, to change legislation enacted by Congress.”

A president can’t do that. The crisis exists because the legislative branch is letting him.

The crisis is compounded because most of the media supports these seizures of power. The New York Times’ take on the State of the Union address (Rush Limbaugh calls it the “State of the Coup,”) is typical: “Taking the offensive by veering around Congress isn’t new for the administration, but it is more important than ever.”

“Veering around Congress” is a neat phrase for serial abuse of power. During a December hearing before a House Judiciary subcommittee on “The President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,” liberal law professor (and onetime Obama voter) Jonathan Turley stated: “The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid.”

The president is quite open about his intentions. “Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation … that’s what I’m going to do,” Obama declared in his State of the Union. The line received vigorous applause from Democrats in the House chamber. Yes, they support the president’s agenda, but weren’t they also applauding their own superfluity?

That’s what I thought before I heard Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, say that writing executive orders for the president to sign — not writing legislation for Congress to vote on, mind you — should be “our No. 1 agenda.” The 10-term congresswoman, while launching the new and Soviet-sounding “Full Employment Caucus” at a recent press conference, promised to “give President Obama a number of executive orders that he can sign with pride and strength.”

This is the formula for one-party rule. As such, it is outrageous, but it is just more static.

What to do with a president who rewrites his own laws, enacts legislation that has failed (repeatedly) to pass into law, and creates legislation through executive agency regulation?

The boldest proposition on the table so far — not moving, I will add — is for Congress to stop funding executive orders that upset the Constitution’s “balance of powers.” This is an obvious “check” to restore “balance.” Fine. Yes. Go for it.

But Obama’s systematic assaults on constitutional governance require more than defunding, and more than static. They require, first and most urgently, a full airing. Impeachment, which may begin with an impeachment inquiry, is the means the Constitution provided us. It offers the way “forward,” as the president might say, to re-establish that America is a nation of laws, not men.

Otherwise, it’s not.

Our government is dysfunctional because the people in it like Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee haven’t a clue much less the intelligence to understand the laws of the land and the responsibility that they have as part of the government.  We The People have let it happen without much protest in the past, and We The People are finally waking up to the fact that We The People are being shafted by the very people that we elected.

It’s time to take the government back.  Elect people based on character and principles, not a party affiliation, that will return this nation back to to the greatness and stature it once had in the world.

Otherwise, we’re fast on the road to being a banana republic…without the bananas.

The ObamaNation Exists only to destroy…….


During the last five to six years, I have rallied the troops against Obama and the things that he stands for. I had hoped that we could be spared all the hate and destruction that he was sure to bring to our great nation. But no……no one listened to me or the others who were saying the same thing. We were all labeled as racists for not wanting to have Barack Obama in the White House.

He was elected.

Then people started to find out that what people like me were saying had some truth to it. And yet, he had die hard supporters who were suffering just as much as the rest of us, because Obama would not do anything for them over anything else, and they found out that he had his own agenda to serve, and he was not going to be doing anything for them. Then the second term elections came up, and guess what, he was elected again.
America is now in the death throes of a regime that has one agenda, and one agenda only. And that is to destroy.

America was formed by some great men who had God, and the rights of the people at heart, and many of them died in the pursuit of this ideal. Read the story of the signers of the Declaration of Independence if you don’t believe me on this. Many, when they signed it were well to do men who had families, and homes. More than most of the day. And many of them died penniless and homeless, some were executed for their ideals, and yet non swayed from what they believed this nation was being formed for.

The men and women who fought for this nation in both world wars had the same type of vision, that America was great and needed to be protected. Then we went into the Vietnam war and suddenly America had two opponents she had never seen before.

The war was fought against a “ghost” in the jungles that came out to fight guerrilla warfare and took our troops by surprise. A type of war we had never really fought before. But the other enemy came from within, another type that we had never fought before, and we didn’t know how to deal with the second.

The second one was and is LIBERALISM. And as Michael Savage says it is a mental disease. Amen to that. But the disease is only there to destroy, and no one has been as for this destruction, than Barack Hussein Obama mmmmMMMMMmmmm. And all you have to do is look through the list of scandals that has hit the Obama regime.

He is the first President to Violate the War Powers Act (Unilaterally Executing American Military Operations in Libya Without Informing Congress In the Required Time Period, found in the Huffington Post, amazingly enough..

His is the first President to Triple the Number of Warrantless Wiretaps of U.S. Citizens, found from the ACLU.

He was also the first President to Sign into Law a Bill That Permits the Government to “Hold Anyone Suspected of Being Associated With Terrorism Indefinitely, Without Any Form of Due Process. No Indictment. No Judge or Jury. No Evidence. No Trial. Just an Indefinite Jail Sentence”. NDAA Bill – Source: Business Insider All these and many more were on a post I did recently, with the sources that I found them in.

But that was just the beginning.

First President to Refuse to Tell the Public What He Did For Eight (8) Hours After Being Informed That a U.S. Ambassador Was Facing Imminent Death During a Terror Attack (Source: Mediate)

He was also the first President to Lie About the Reason For an Ambassador’s Death, Blaming it on an Internet Video Rather Than What He Knew to be the Case: the Al Qaeda-linked Terror Group Ansar al-Sharia (Source: House Oversight Committee, et. al.)
This one was one of the most irresponsible ones as he was the first President to Have an Innocent Filmmaker Thrown in Jail After Lying About the Cause for a Deadly Attack on U.S. Diplomats, Using the Filmmaker as a Scapegoat (Source: CNN)

He was the first President to Use the IRS to “Unfairly Target Political Enemies” as Well as pro-Catholic and pro-Jewish Groups (Source: Sen. Ted Cruz)

He was the first President to Unlawfully Seize Telephone Records of More than 100 Reporters to Intimidate and/or Bully Them (Source: Associated Press)

He was also the first President to Witness a Single Cabinet Secretary Commit Multiple Hatch Act Violations Without Acting, Speaking Out, Disciplining or Firing That Person (Source: New York Times) And still this was just the beginning.

I had a big list of things that Obama was the first president to do, and even with this long long list, I didn’t even mention Fast and Furious. Benghazi. And that last one is the most horrible one of all.

Remember all the things the liberals said of Bush when 9-11 happened. Of course you do. Remember the “Bush lied, people died” thing that was all the rage for months? After Benghazi all we got from those same liberals was, “What difference at this point does it make?”

Now all of this is enough to make any sane and patriotic American sick with the knowledge that the man they elected to be president, was only in it to destroy what God and the founding fathers had given us. And it should be no surprise at all to anyone who is watching that Obamacare and Obama’s policies are killing jobs.

According to a new report, by the Congressional Budget Office, found that ObamaCare will reduce the full-time workforce by an estimated 2.3 million jobs by 2021.

That on top of the fact that they have found out that there are over a million less people working today than when Obama took office. One of the things that is helping him keep his employment numbers lower than they really are.

From The Washington Post:

The CBO previously estimated that the economy would have 800,000 fewer jobs in 2021 as a result of the law. In that analysis, the CBO looked primarily at how employers would respond to a new penalty for failing to offer insurance to employees who work more than 30 hours a week. That response would include cutting people’s hours, hiring fewer workers and lowering wages for new jobs.

I got lucky this year, and in a horrible working environment, I found a good job. But I know without a doubt, that if the company I work for now, was owned here in America, and wan’t out of Japan, it would not have hired me, because the policies of Obama would be working hard to keep it from growing.
Obama the job killer? There is no truer statement coming out of anywhere today. Obama tries to tell us that with his policies the unemployment rate is now under 7%. A number that he needs to be true, and it would be great if that was the truth. But it isn’t. it isn’t even close to being true. The actual unemployment rate is really closer to 13% or even higher. But, Obama doesn’t care. He only wants to destroy, and his policies are doing just that.

And the sooner we wake up to that fact folks, the better off this country will be, and the easier it will be to bring us back from the edge of oblivion that him and his lemmings in Washington have us teetering over.

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us everyone.

What do we do now? Where do we go?


Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
-Ronald Reagan-

It seems that this quote from our ex president Ronald Reagan is being forgotten by the politicians in Washington, and a lot of the people too.

It doesn’t take much in the lines of intelligence to realize just how true this quote from our president of a few decades ago is. Especially today. Because we are giving up our freedoms at a rate that has never been equalled in our history.

We have our president telling us that since congress won’t do what he wants, then he has “a pen and a phone” and he will make executive orders to make what he wants happen. And guess what folks? Congress is being blamed for what is going wrong!

So what do we do now? Where do we go now? I will have to say folks, that what we need to do now, is to start voting all the politicians of both parties out of office, that won’t follow the laws of this nation and wan’t do what the Constitution says they must. Where do we go now? That is in the same vein as we have to start by voting all these bozo’s out of office that won’t do what is needed to save this country, and start calling out the media and other politicians when someone who stands up for this country gets called down by these same politicians and the media.

As long as the media and the moderate to liberal politicians keep getting away with their idiocy, they will continue it. And that will continue us down the road to destruction we are on with Obama and the others who are following him down that yellow brick road to destruction.

My question to all the ones who won’t do this simple thing to save America is this. What is so hard about doing the right thing?

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us everyone.

I just watched my team get trounced in the Superbowl……


But that isn’t what has me upset tonight. What has me upset is the Coca Cola ad that was played during the Super Bowl. It started out, with a woman singing Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies…..you know, that song? Then it does something that I would have never thought, coming from a company as American as they come. The singer, started singing “America the beautiful” in other languages.

Give a listen:


Now my question is this. This is America. We do not speak all of these languages. It wasn’t necessary to do this. Sure the Super bowl is seen all over the world, but they do different ads in different areas. Why couldn’t they do one with just english which would have been okay for the United States, and then do another one with the different languages in other parts of the world?

From the place I found this, Allen West’s site, he said this:

I’m watching the Super Bowl, looks like good defense (Seattle) is trouncing good offense (Denver) when a Coca Cola commercial came on and it started rather patriotically with the words of “America the Beautiful.”

Then the words went from English to languages I didn’t recognize. Now, I know the politically correct thing is to foster multiculturalism — working really well in Europe — but we should remember the words spoken by President Teddy Roosevelt;

Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.”

In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American.

There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile.

We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, and American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding house; and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.

I am quite sure there may some who appreciated the commercial, but Coca Cola missed the mark in my opinion. If we cannot be proud enough as a country to sing “American the Beautiful” in English in a commercial during the Super Bowl, by a company as American as they come — doggone we are on the road to perdition. This was a truly disturbing commercial for me, what say you?

I have to say this to Mr Allen West. Bravo to you sir for speaking out when others don’t. America needs more defenders like you. It saddens me that so few has said anything about this travesty. America is in trouble!

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us to start defending this country and her values.

A Complete list of Obama’s FIRSTS…..and not in a good way.

Our Un-Constitutional President


What a turn-around…From this:

To this just a few weeks ago:

Judge jury and executioner - A One Man Constitution

“…we are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help that they need.  I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.  I can use that pen to sign Executive Orders and take Executive Actions and Administrative Actions that move the ball forward….

Commentary from Necessary and Proper Government:

You understand that the Constitution specifies the Executive Branch’s role is to execute and administer the carefully-enacted laws and spending appropriations of the Legislative branch.  Its role is NOT to take the ball into its own hands and move an agenda forward, ahead of the Legislative branch.

As a Conservative, you recognize that what this President openly said he’s going to do is unconstitutional.  Thank goodness the Constitution provides methods of checks and balances, allowing a naturally self-protective Legislative Branch to restrain an imperial president via the impeachment process.

You’re confident that if President Obama actually says anything like this directly to Congress – during a State of the Union speech for example – then Congress will surely be offended by such a display of intent for Executive overreach.

Apparently not – he received a 15-second standing ovation from most of the Congress-critters in response to the announcement that he, as President, would ignore the Constitution and bypass Congress!

Reminds me of the follow quotes and sequence from the movies:

“In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society, which I assure you will last for ten thousand years.” – Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, Star Wars Episode III

“So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause.”  – Senator Padme Amidala, Star Wars Episode III

“The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word from Coruscant that The Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away forever.” – Grand Moff Tarkin, Star Wars Episode IV

If the President is now claiming that he has the unchallenged authority to bypass the duly elected legislative body of the American people, have We the People elected a President or a Dictator?  It would seem the latter.  For instance:

  • Obama has directed law enforcement not to enforce immigration laws (Dream Act).
  • Obama has directed the alteration of the ACA’s laws and mandates at least 15 times.
  • Obama has granted ACA waivers to various employers and politically connected groups.
  • Obama has directed that appointed three members of the National Labor Relations Board, as well as the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, while the Senate was still in session.
  • Obama directed violations of established bankruptcy laws in the cases of GM and Chrysler, costing creditors, retirement funds, and the American people millions of dollars.
  • A pending Obama Executive order would require businesses with federal contracts to disclose independent expenditures on federal elections (political speech independent of candidates and parties) which would undermine the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court and the First Amendment.

All of the above actions are violations of various laws established long before President Obama came on the scene.  And yet any challenges are met with charges of racism, obstructionism, hate speech, fear-mongering, etc., that is if any challenges are made at all.

To which I must quote one of President Obama’s colleagues:

“We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.” – Hillary Clinton

I would like to take this opportunity to remind President Obama of his Oath, of which he has made twice:

“I do solemnly swear 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, so help me God.” – Presidential oath of office (per Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution)

Does anyone reading the above believe that President Obama is living up to his Oath of Office or the Presidency?

I don’t…and it’s not because our President is black.  It’s because he is incompetent, has an incompetent staff, and is destroying this Country through his actions and agenda.  Our Congress, Media, and even those among us refuse to hold him and his Administration accountable for their actions. 

So let’s stop and have a reality check:

Friends and readers of this post – you have a choice this next election cycle.  Vote in people that will work to restore this country’s principles, or vote in the next crop of people that will continue the path to destruction.  It’s that simple, and that critical.
