What Difference Does It Make: The Liberal Ideology


Was worth repeating. Thank you.

The Pajama Patriot

“What difference does it make?” We have now heard this phrase used twice by our liberal politicians to address policy decisions of monumental importance.

Most of America was shocked when Hillary Clinton used the phrase in her congressional hearing on Benghazi. More recently, Harry Reid surprised us, yet again, by using it to defend the White House’s decision to bypass congress and trade five Taliban detainees for the release of one American deserter.

This kind of talk, particularly in Harry Reid’s case, is not accidental. It is part and parcel of the liberal ideology. From the progressive viewpoint, good intentions and a positive end result are all that matter. Methodology takes a back seat. The law, fraught with its cumbersome requirements and limits on methodology, is an annoyance to the left. It is an obstacle to be skirted whenever possible to achieve progressive ends.

The case of Bowe Bergdahl is…

STRENGHTH IN WORDS FROM OUR FOUNDING FATHERS


The wisdom of our founding fathers  holds true today more than ever.  What they projected would cause us to fall from greatness, has and continues to happen.   Here are a few quotes from our founders to ponder:

” Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility,  prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they can have done or ever will do good.”  John Adams

“I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared.  To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.  If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements.”  Thomas Jefferson (Worth repeating I might add)

“Beware the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry.”  Thomas Paine

“All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, not from a want of honor or virtue so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”  John Adams

“If ever again our nation stumbles upon unfunded paper, it shall be like death to our body politic.  This country will crash.”   George Washington

Here is my favorite:   “I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution.  I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the genuine principles of its Constitution; I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing.”  Thomas Jefferson

I believe this is still the greatest country on the planet.   I don’t have to tell you what our fore fathers faced to gain our independence.   The turmoil and struggles they faced are not that different from what we face today.   They fought and won, and then built the nation it became, virtually from scratch.   We face a similar battle that only living in a modern time makes different.

We can rebuild this nation to an even greater greatness.  We can regain a more respected place in the world, one that we are looked up to than looked down on.

We need to  start by using our minds, our voices and common sense.   I believe there isn’t a problem that doesn’t have a solution.  This is 2014, we have the knowledge to find the answers……… are we willing?

Oh, by the way, we still have a right to assembly, together we make a very powerful voice.

 

 

Obama’s 3AM Benghazi Call Was To Google To Plot Coverup


If this story turns out to be true, this makes a Watergate Cover-up peanuts. If the evidence is true, and there are strong indications they are…….impeachment proceedings should begin immediately. If they don’t, Congress should be held accountable, and they become part of the cover-up. I will be investigating to confirm  validity of this potential bombshell ……….with an article to follow.

Obama Was Making Up Benghazi Cover Up During The Attack

” Now new evidenced has surfaced that might just be the nail in the coffin for the Obama administration.

  According to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, an explosive new email reveals that the White House was contacting YouTube owner Google to try and come up with a false narrative for the events that were in progress in Benghazi.

via Tea Party News Network:

  House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said on Thursday that the Obama White House was contacting YouTube owner Google during the Benghazi terrorist attacks, working on the false narrative even before Americans were out of harm’s way and before the intelligence community examined available evidence. 

  The still classified Obama State Department email, according to Issa, shows that the Obama White House rushed to settle on the…

RE-ELECTION OF THE CLOWNS


 

Many primary elections are approaching, it is time for us to make some change.

Albert Einstein once said “Insanity:  Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”    We have a United States Congress that a recent Fox poll shows  a 78% disapproval rating.   A man in the White House, that I have a difficult time calling the President, with a 55% disapproval rating and quickly falling, even among Democrats.   So, why then do we keep re-electing these people over and over again?

When employees don’t work hard and don’t perform their jobs, they eventually get fired.   We need to fire some people, now.  Why do we put these men and women, Democrats and Republicans back into office when they do nothing but draw large salaries, or we disapprove when they have done something?    Career politicians get way too comfortable………   It was never intended for elected officials to make lifetime careers in government; do your service and go home to your daytime job.

What is even more troubling and totally insane?  We have members of Congress that are  constantly made fools of and clowns that have been in their seats so long, I can’t remember when they weren’t there.  You know who they are; Nancy, Harry, John, Diane and probably another John.

We and we alone are responsible for who gets put in office.  I know money buys elections, and present office holders have the most name recognition.   Finding good qualified candidates is difficult.   They are out there, there in your neighborhoods, your own household.   I know there are very intelligent men and women with common sense and integrity walking among us.   We need to find them, encourage and support them.   We need new faces, new blood, unafraid to do whats right and not just politically correct.   We need leaders that put America first.

We all need to get involved and turn this nation back around…….lets get rid of the insanity.

 

 

 

 

FROM THE OBAMA TEAM…..LETS MAKE A DEAL!!!


Imagine this, If Barack Obama was the general manager of the Chicago Cubs. The poor Cubbies have five losers that just don’t fit in well with the team’s chemistry, ride the bench and are not fan favorites; they’ve seen how they play. Now the Yankees GM picked up this foreign free agent sometime back who was feeling lost without a team, but the Yanks thought he deserved a 2nd chance. The lost soul really liked his new teammates but doesn’t communicate well and just wasn’t catching on to the Yankee way. Management held on to their bonus baby as the GM felt he had some trade bait value.

The Yankee GM knew of the five potential stars wasting away on the Cub’s roster, but thought their organization could convert them back into the stars they once were, if they could only pry them away from that shrewd negotiator, Barack Obama. After a couple of phone calls the Yankee squad was surprised just how willing Obama was to give up the 5 bombers, I mean sluggers for one lost soul.

The Yankees broke out in celebration as they anticipate becoming the powerhouse and threat against the rest of the league. While back in Chicago, the fans are stunned and raged with bitter outcry against their team leader. Who in their right mind would trade five players for one player with little or no value; five that will surely come back to haunt them. This is how to destroy a team……

Barack Obama told Brian Williams in an interview on Friday, he would “do it again”. He would trade five terrorist for the one, if he were in the same situation. Even after the outcry from the American people, he would give them back again. Obama made these comments on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France and he did it arrogantly. What an insult to all, especially to the men that sacrificed for our freedom that historic day.

He hasn’t been listening. He has no interest in our security and future. Barack Obama would destroy a baseball team with his executive strategy and style. He is playing with our lives…….If this were baseball, he’d be fired. You perform or you are gone.
Why do we hold our professional sports teams and management on higher expectations and then dismiss them for poor performance, but do nothing when our leaders fail.

This isn’t a game, Obama has had his chance to perform and has failed. His actions are worse than reckless and irrational, they are insane. This is a man who cares not for the well-being of the country. He is our Commander-in-Chief for God’s sake. Does a commander-in-chief in his right mind just hand over a nuclear bomb for a firecracker? I just don’t want him to destroy our nation. I remember a president being run from office because he was accused of covering up a burglary! A burglary! We and we alone will have to hold Obama accountable. Congress won’t, they’re part of the problem. We must deal with them as well. Its time to remove Barack Obama from the White House. He has betrayed this nation. Thomas Jefferson warned us there would be times like this and our founding fathers placed means to deal with them within our constitution. Its time We the People respond.

CEDAR HILL, MO (KTVI) – As we recognize those who fought for our country on this 70th anniversary of D-Day, a Jefferson County community is mourning the loss of a young soldier.  Private First Class Matt Walker, who served in the 101st Airborne Division, was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan.

His best friend, Daniel Nixon, says Walker never had a doubt he wanted to be a soldier, just like his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him: “He had planned ever since he was a little kid. It was something he was proud to take on for his name. He was proud to be the next one in the family, to serve for our country.”

His friends say he was a selfless person, a mentor, and a leader.  Walker graduated from Grandview High School in 2012, where he loved playing football.  He is survived by…

This may offend you


The Bold and the Beautiful

I am excited and also somewhat apologetic that the first thing I’m going to throw out into the blogosphere is going to probably offend someone.  But when it comes down to it, that is pretty much the type of blog you’re entering into.  One that is going to touch on subjects that many people avoid.   Doing that is bound to offend someone.  So, don’t say I didn’t warn you. 

I’ve thrown around the idea of blogging for sometime now, but it was a post on FB today that finally did it for me.  I responded to a post in my normal fashion…meaning a small novel at a time, in what I thought was support for someone going through a hard time…and it went terribly, terribly wrong.  As usual, I was my blunt, unapologetic self in my opinion on something that I didn’t realize she completely disagreed with me on…the…
