Paying For A Tax Cut

Ever since Obama was campaigning in 2008 he had a habit of pointing to the Republican congress that had been out of power since the previous election cycle and states that they passed a massive tax cut without paying for it.

What exactly does it mean to "pay" for a "tax cut"?

Well, the very idea that he uses the terminology to "pay" for it shows that one of Obama's core beliefs is that the citizens work for the government instead of the government working for it's citizens.

That is the antithesis of what our founding fathers thought and should make everyone American shudder when thinking of the implications.

The way you "pay" for a tax cut is to DECREASE government spending. Every level of government in our nation is bloated and out of control. Nearly everyone agrees with this, but yet nothing is being done about it. We hear a lot of politicians providing lip service to the idea of cutting spending, but the political reality is there will always be someone who will be unhappy when their little piece of the pie gets cut from the budget.

Obama speaks of our citizens needing to "make sacrifices" for the good of the nation, but the sacrifices he envisions translates to you sacrificing more of your paycheck.

Everyone does need to sacrifice something to get this country back on the right path. And that sacrifice would be the superfluous government programs we waste so many billions upon billions of dollars on every single month.

It's time to remove the hypocrisy of "sacrifice" and "paying for tax cuts" which is code for increased government spending.

Time to put a stop to the career politicians and start over from scratch.

Response to Deepwater Horizon by Obama and the Media

Where has the Obama Administration been while the oil spill in the gulf has wreaked environmental havoc on the Gulf of Mexico?

The Deepwater Horizon exploded on April 20th, now 10 days later the fears of the oil spill hitting the coast of America have grown to panic state. On April 23rd the president met with Admiral Allen of the US Coast Guard and was briefed on the situation. During that time the National Response Team was stationed in New Orleans to begin work on search and rescue efforts and handle the impact of the oil spill.

Are the appropriate measures being taken to do all that can be done to avert disaster? One can't help but draw parallels to Hurricane Katrina. The difference being this disaster is man-made and could have an adverse impact that would take far longer to recover from than time to rebuild New Orleans.

One can't help but be puzzled how President George W. Bush was lambasted for not acting quickly enough to respond to Hurricane Katrina and there is no sign of discussion in any shape or form about the federal response to this disaster.

Passing of time will determine if Deepwater Horizon is Obama's Katrina. But more importantly is the reaction by the press. Will the mainstream media give the current administration a pass on federal response times to this disaster? How the media reacts to this event should tell the American people where their loyalties lie.

I believe this will turn into a "stop the drilling" mantra and the media will focus on energy policy in the future of American, rather than how this particular incident is handled by the current administration. The ecological and financial impact of this event will last for years, possibly decades.

Time will tell if the media becomes a shill for the Obama Administration.

President of the Divided States of America

When Barack Obama was Candidate Barack Obama, we often heard how he's a man of the people. He could relate to Blacks, Whites, Latinos, Asians, etc. He spoke of how his background living in different countries offered him a different perspective.

That perspective was one that was to unite our country more than ever before. A post-partisan and post-racial America. One that would transcend all the petty disagreements we had before. A nation that would be lauded by people in other countries. He was to increase the world's respect for America.

What most people didn't realize at the time was Candidate Barack Obama meant this would only come to fruition if everyone would just agree with his policies, his ideas and follow in lockstep behind him.

His time as President Barack Obama has been filled with various comments and gestures that indicate a willingness to get down in the mud and berate those that disagree with his views. An unseemly act for someone holding the most powerful position in the free world.

Mr. Obama has been a driving force in dividing our nation. He pits Americans against each other depending upon his audience and what he wants to accomplish. Never before has someone touted to has such astute political abilities been so politically horrendous.

He sees himself as the champion of the oppressed. But only as he gets to define the oppressors. In his words, average Americans who are fed up with government spending and have legitimate fears about the growth of government spending under his administration he is "amused" by. He feels those same people should "thank" him for "cutting" taxes.

Work on Wall Street or an employee of a large financial firm? You're the bad guy. Banker? You're a "fat cat" shark. Looking to take advantage of the oppressed. A police officer doing your job? You might act "stupidly" when fulfilling your duties. When the federal government fails to secure our borders and your state Governor looks out for you best interests? You might be "irresponsible" or "misguided".

Barack Obama is a part time President. He leads only a fraction of our country.

Never before in the history of our nation have we had a president purposely attempt to pit American against American on such a grand scale to push a narcissistic agenda to appease his ego. Not even Nixon went to this extreme.

Mr. Obama needs to lead all of America. He is the president of all Americans, not just a select few that agree with his policies. He extends an open hand to Iran while bringing a gun to the fight with his own citizens.

It is time for him to stop being a demagogue and be a President.

The President of the United States of America.

Arizona Immigration Law - Histrionics Included

The recent signing of the tough immigration law in Arizona has brought the fury of the histrionic left to the streets. The vast misrepresentations of the law portrayed (and perpetuated) by the mainstream media has allowed ill-informed protesters the ability to continue to misinform new listeners to the debate.

The common fallacy that has continually been brought to the forefront is the idea that Arizona law has created a new law that requires immigrants to carry papers with them at all times.


As can be seen, this law piggybacks federal code already in place. Let's see what 8 US Code 1304(e) and 1306(a) says.
8 USC 1304(e):
(e) Personal possession of registration or receipt card; penalties
Every alien, eighteen years of age and over, shall at all times
carry with him and have in his personal possession any certificate
of alien registration or alien registration receipt card issued to
him pursuant to subsection (d) of this section. Any alien who fails
to comply with the provisions of this subsection shall be guilty of
a misdemeanor and shall upon conviction for each offense be fined
not to exceed $100 or be imprisoned not more than thirty days, or
8 USC 1306(a):
a) Willful failure to register
Any alien required to apply for registration and to be
fingerprinted in the United States who willfully fails or refuses
to make such application or to be fingerprinted, and any parent or
legal guardian required to apply for the registration of any alien
who willfully fails or refuses to file application for the
registration of such alien shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and
shall, upon conviction thereof, be fined not to exceed $1,000 or be
imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

As can be clearly seen, federal law already exists which requires aliens to carry paperwork. Arizona law doesn't create that requirement, the federal government does. Arizona has expanded it to state law due to the fact the federal government has failed to live up to it's responsibilities in Arizona and securing her borders.

It is irresponsible and dishonest for protesters and pundits to pretend Arizona has established a Nazi state by requiring her citizens to "carry papers". If that part of the law is objectionable, then they should protest the federal government for redress, after all Arizona used federal code to craft it's law.
