God-given Rights and nature-given truths

The Declaration of Independence declares that there are certain truths granted by God, or if one prefers, nature.  And in thinking about it, they all seem logical.

All men are created equal; "man" includes women, of course.  The equality part means that to be born, we are all equal in that we have:  Life, which is a given if we are born.  Liberty was a new concept back then given a long history of kings, nobility having ownership, virtual or not over all the rest of us.  But why shouldn't all of us have it?  The Pursuit of Happiness, whatever it is and however each of us choose to use our freedom to pursue it.  Equality clearly doesn't mean equality as in we are all the same.  That also is clear given height, weight, health and IQ of newborns.

To secure these things anarchy hadn't worked nor absolute kingships.  So governments had to be invented in order to secure the above.  And it happened.  Those unequal men of the U. S. Revolution not only led Americans in war, and won it, but did invent the most innovative government structure ever invented.  (On its second try!)

Back then life in America was hard-scrabble and bereft of physical comfort.  From that came what we have and what we are today. 

There were two underlying foundations of the United States.  One was a God.  The other was commerce.

Today both are under fire.

AKIN propaganda

Winning isn't everything.  Maybe for the Liberals, but look at what havoc that has reaped on the United States.  But the Bush/Republicans didn't stop the trajectory.  I know nothing about Akin, except that he has been blasted beyond recognition by the media and the Left (well, that's the same thing) as expected.  But by the Right?  That's shameful and indicative of the hopelessness of this election.  Republicans in lockstep at the bidding of the Left-wing media simply abandoned a viable candidate, Akin.  The reason the Republicans might not win the Senate is right there in their typical action: don't upset the Left-wing media that hates them and that for which they stand.  It is same old, same old, reason they always lose, and might again.

Akin's comments - taken wrong, probably on purpose - weren't off the mark.  A woman's body INVOLUNTARILY  can and in some unknown number of cases does reject a foreign body when it (her body) is under duress such as in rape.  The woman's body reacts and she has no control over such rejection or not.  I believe that the notion of voluntary - her "choice" not to get pregnant - is the purposeful misinformation by the Left of what he meant.  Such bodily rejection action is completely out of her control, but as with organ rejection is either done or not done involuntarily by the body.


Who dies, the Democratic Party or the United States of America?  The choice is stark, but clear.  This is the Second Civil War for the soul of the America.  A country formed for freedom, for the Rule of Law, for private ownership, for equality (of opportunity) and for commerce.   It is the choice between the prosperity of free enterprise or the bureaucratic swamp of failure. Of choices made BY YOU or FOR YOU by a cadre of elites in Washington, D.C.  Of  capitalism or regulation, price fixing and micromanagement.  For the benefit of those seeking prosperity and betterment or those seeking (buying) reelection.  

It is up to you.

Our Society is Doomed

"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed."

HOT AIR OR OIL? 19,000,000 acres in the desert covered up or 23,000,000 acres in far away Alaska may be drilled. You choose which sounds best.

President Obama -- certainly without considering the upcoming election -- is thinking about possibly proposing the possibility of opening up for application to the Interior Department, EPA, OPA 23,000,000 acres in the National Petroleum Reserve, a remote wilderness in the far reaches of Alaska that no one would want to visit, as his "preferred alternative" out of four of them to have a few holes drilled looking for oil and natural gas deposits there.  This selection over the others would slam shut the door on tens of millions of acres of major government oil and gas holdings nearby.  Environmentalists cheered.  (Something's wrong.)

President Obama -- certainly without considering the upcoming election -- will approve, allow and encourage his favorite little taxpayer-financed industry -- 19,000,000 acres of readily-accessable vacationland to be covered with solar panels.  Starting with an immediate construction permit on 285,000 acres -- hundreds of thousands of individual solar panels littering desertland and pristine wilderness -- and streamlining regulations (wow, streamlining regulations!) of the National Environmental Policy Act while cutting up-front fees (saving taxpayers giving taxpayer money to the government, go figure)!  $9,000,000,000 of taxpayer monies went to such boondoggles from President Obama from 2009 through 2011.  Snail darters, owls, desert tortoises and bighorn sheep might suffer and ultimately millions of acres strangled of light.  But hey, metal structures convered with massive semiconductor panels are much prettier than nature anyway.  Environmentalists cheered.  (Something's wrong.)

President Obama also arbitrarily closed down the possibility of obtaining shale oil off of federal lands from the 2005 Energy Policy Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush.

You want economic growth?  It takes energy that for the forseeable future can ONLY come from natural gas, oil and natural coal.

President Obama prefers to buy oil for the energy needs of the United States from Saudi Arabia.

Makes you think.

You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet!

As I have been strenuously arguing for years, the Left has no bounds, no limits; it will do and say anything to gain and retain its power, raw power over the rest of us. The Republicans play by their (Republicans') self-imposed rules of modesty, politeness and fairness. AND THEY HAVE BEEN LOSING MORE OR LESS FOR 75 YEARS!

Can't they catch a clue?

The Sexy Prexy will use every ounce of asset of the strongest country in history for one reason: to get himself reelected. Why does he want reelection? First, because he loves the easy, fat, cushy job itself. He can preen and have crowds admire and clap. He can read BS on his Teleprompter and have it repeated ad nauseum by the fawning media.  Ohhh, Ahhh!  He spouts inaccuries and outright made-up lies. 

Second, he wants to get reelected to show his worthless, drunk, abandoning father that he (Obama) is worthy.

Third, he wants to change the United States into a dictatorship (benigh,like they all are) with him at the helm to improve everyone's lives in the world to they way he wants.

So ladies and gentlemen, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

(The arrest of a top Goldman or other bank CEO should probably happen October 15!)     Will Mitt Romney get MAD?  Paul Ryan will!  Let's hope and pray they win the election...this the Second Civil War of the United States of America!

Did Al Gore really invent the Internet? Did the "government"?

President Obama:  "The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."

1.  Well, no "government research" did not invent the Internet.
2.  It is so off-the-charts strange that President Obama would say that government research created the Internet "so that all the companies could make money off the Internet".
While much of President Obama’s speech gets mocked (Opinion, July 23, “Who Really Invented the Internet?”) I have not read one word about what is the most over-the-top weird sentence of the speech, perhaps of everything President Obama has ever said. Here it is: “Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet." His contention about who “invented” the Internet – government research -- is factually incorrect (as is typical it was not one person or thing, it was a small string of predecessor inventions by individuals capped by Xerox PARC laboratories) as the L. Gordon Crovitz article writes. But the reason it was invented was, Mr. Obama said, “so that all the companies” – whatever “all the companies” means – “could make money off” – as if the money is just “made” without any human entrepreneurial intervention. And the term, “make money off” seems simply sophomoric. More than his other sentences, this one seems the most confused and incomprehensible. Not only is government research basic, not applied, its goal is not so companies can make money, whatever that really means. I need to stop here. Mr. Obama’s speech stands on his own, as is Mr. Obama’s confusion.

Crushed speech

It is not about religion.  It is not about chicken.  It is about freedom of speech.  Unarguable elected politicians of Left-wing cities are threatening a privately-held, major job creating company for its CEO's comments.

If that doesn't frighten and enlighten I know nothing any Democrat does will.  You should be enlightened because this is the future under Democrats: speech, mind and thought control.  Anti-Left-wing speech is crushed.  The actions of at this point only a few politicians, but many, many Left-wing citizens should give you a view of what they want in the future.


Vore for Freedom: Vote for Romney.
