Big Brother Says Pick a Bridge and Jump, Part IV

Part I

Part II

Part III

The Bailout Scams:

Bear Sterns. Freddie Mac. Fannie Mae. Goldman Sachs. Morgan Stanley. American International Group (AIG). Citigroup. Bank of America.

Unless you live under a rock, you've heard of these institutions. You've caught wind of the Subprime mortgage disaster.

You've seen or read news reports about the automotive industry crisis, which included the bailouts of General Motors and Crysler.

In each of these cases, corporations engaged in irresponsible business practices received aid from the U.S. federal government -- or more to the point, accepted billions of dollars of taxpayer funds as a juicy reward for failure, negligence, and corruption. Some of these companies perpetrated financial fraud; but did that even slow down Big Brother's largesse with other people's money?

Can pigs fly?

First, we had King Bush with his $700 billion TARP (Total Annihilation of Responsible Policy-making) hokum. Don't forget his willing conspirators in Congress, or his paladin, Juan McAmnesty. With the exception of Bush, no single individual talked up the Screw-over Act of 2008 more than McAmnesty, who led the charge against fiscal common sense with all of the passion and valor of Janos Hunyadi and his Hungarians at Kosovo -- with similar results. McAmnesty lost the 2008 presidential election and went down to defeat against an entity with all the substance of a pail of air.

The empty vessel named Obama trod over his rivals, entered the Oral Office, and continued where Bush left off in his magnificent desolation of the economy. As Emeril Lagasse would say, he "kicked it up a notch."

With messianic mendacity, Obama attempted selling the people a bill of goods on his "stimulus" plans. He told us that we need $787 billion spent on tax relief, socialist insecurity, unemployment, infrastructure, housing, health care, education, energy, automobiles, law enforcement, Martian ebola victims, a shrine to Karl Marx on the National Mall, a 556-foot statue of himself beside the Washington Monument, and the Barack Hussein Obama Presidential Mosque in downtown Nairobi, with a branch location in Honolulu.

George Dubya Bush was a nightmare for our nation's economy, but Barack Hussein Obama has taken all of Bush's excesses and thrown them from Light Speed to Ludicrous Speed. He's treating his cronies to a sumptuous feast with your money, and he's barely broken out the hors d'Ĺ“uvres. Of course, he, too, has his minions in Congress. It's not as if these presidents have the purse-strings all to themselves.

All of the above leads to the revelation that the citizenry of this country rejected the bailout scams before, during and after their implementations. I believe McAmnesty's pro-bailout zealotry -- more than any other single issue -- led to his demise at the voting precincts in the contest for the presidency.

In a Rasmussen poll from January:

1. 56% of voters believe the banking and financial bailouts were a bad idea. This finding is similar to that of April, 2009.

2. 58% reject the automotive bailouts -- a figure that remains consistent with earlier percentages.

3. But lo and behold the disparity between the outlooks of the political class and mainstream Americans: 73% of the political class think the automotive bailouts are a swell idea; 73% of mainstream Americans think they make terrible policy. The numbers hover in the same area regarding the financial institution bailouts.

So we have elites looking out of the windows of their uptown apartments and estate houses and spitting in the people's faces. They hold views in polar opposition to those of the average U.S. citizen, and they intend ramming their agendas down your throat.

Even if they have to use your own checkbook to do it.

Part II

Obamacare (Commiecare):

A Democrat-controlled Congress passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law back in March. This legislation rammed socialized health care down America's throat for the first time in its history. Since government-controlled medicine works so well everywhere else -- what with people flocking to the States for surgeries and other medical procedures -- we know that good times lie ahead.

Here's how Congress voted on the issue:

House of Representatives:

178 Republicans against; 0 in favor.
34 Democrats against; 219 in favor.


39 Republicans against; 0 in favor.
0 Democrats and Independents against; 60 in favor.

Maybe the GOP is playing the partisan political game so typical of D.C. elites. Of course, we can't accuse Republicans of this without including the Democrats in that criticism, given their virtual lock-step voting pattern favoring socialism. However, whatever reasons exist for why Republicans and Democrats vote as they do, a stark contrast exists between the two political parties on this particular issue -- at least as far as their voting patterns go. Obamacare is the Democrat party's illegitimate child.

The U.S. citizenry stood against Obamacare before and after it passed. Depending on which polls one consults, somewhere between 52% and 63% of the American people want this pernicious, liberty-crushing legislation repealed.

Obama and the Democrats have responded to such concerns with a "Hie thee to Hell" approach for those who don't like having our system of government dismantled in one of the most blatant power-grabs in U.S. history. They have zero interest in what you or I think about anything -- unless our views correspond to theirs one hundred percent, in which case bully for us.

When the majority of people are against an initiative and have provided sound, well-reasoned arguments for their opposition, politicians cannot force the issue through, while claiming that they represent the interests of their constituency. That's a lie. It's not representative government. It is not government of, by, and for the people. Rather, it's a dictatorial oligarchy.

Chris Matthews Understands

I found this little gem in the "Letters" section at World Net Daily:

I read your article on the president and where he was born. It doesn't matter. He is still one of the best presidents this country has ever had.

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, I am white and was born in North Carolina. He has more supporters that you know.


Since Teresa thinks that the Constitution is worth less than Sheryl Crowe's recycled toilet paper, using what metric does she determine that Obama is one of "the best presidents this country has ever had"? Is it that winning smile? That slim physique as he saunters across the beach, shirtless? His crisp elocution? His wife's vacation getaways, the extravagance of which would have rendered Marie Antoinette insensate with envy?

As for the number of his supporters, well, we know that whites supported him in great, mooing, herdlike droves. Since blacks make up about 13% of the population, he couldn't have won the election without lots of addlepated whites -- like Teresa -- scampering off to the voting precinct and putting every ounce of their gullibility behind Baracking the vote.

I'll bet that every time Obama speaks or grins, Teresa feels a little tingle shoot up her leg, and a bolt of lightning thrills her heart.

She's not alone. Just ax Oprah.

Homosexual "Marriage":

I'm sure by now my readers are somewhat familiar with the recent ruling in California on homosexual "marriage." Federal judge Vaughn Walker struck down Proposition 8, which was a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Seven million California voters approved this amendment in 2008, or about 52%.

Perhaps you might say, "Big deal. This just affects Californication, the land of illegal aliens, drag queens, leftism as moderate politics, and nutcases of all sorts." OK, I won't argue that point.

But consider this: in the most leftward-leaning state of the union, over half of voters said "No!" to nuptialed fruits. California also is the most populous state, so a decision of this import may have far-reaching ramifications for the rest of the United States.

The unelected Judge Walker, an open homosexual himself, reacted to the public's will by telling Californians to take a long walk off a short pier. Allowing Walker's presiding over this case is like letting a fat guy create menu ideas for Jenny Craig.

The case isn't over, yet, as it will see a long appeals process leading all the way to the Supreme Court. But it illustrates the gaping chasm separating the will of the people, and the will of the lawless elites.

Big Brother Says Pick a Bridge and Jump

We live in a time in which the federal government has nothing but disdain for the will of the American people. I think a handful of specific examples illustrate this problem:


This has proven a serious matter for twenty-five years, but it became acute under George W. Bush. Never before had I seen a president who was so congenial to immigrants in general, and illegal aliens in particular. He proposed de facto mass amnesty, and lied to the public about his intentions by redefining words and concepts. One could pen a whole volume on his deceit and dereliction of duty in this area.

Under Obama, this dire situation has become worse, as implausible as that may seem. The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council cast a unanimous vote of "No Confidence" in the director and assistant director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The Council acted on behalf of 7,000 ICE officers and employees, on June 25.

Like Bush, Obama seeks amnesty for criminal invaders. ICE, which operates under Obama Administration appointees, deports aliens without further punishment for crimes that land citizens in prison, foregoes the enforcement of laws on the books, mismanages resources without accountability, treats criminals like foreign dignitaries, and retaliates against internal whistleblowers.

Worst of all, the Obama Administration has taken an active role in persecuting the people of Arizona for their efforts toward enacting the federal laws that Obama and his partners in high crimes and misdemeanors refuse to enforce. It's akin to the police arresting a man for thrashing his wife's attempted rapist.

Poll after poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans want legal immigration more limited in scope, and illegal "immigration" nipped in the bud.

However, the Republicans and Democrats have chosen a bipartisan response to those concerns, manifest in standing hand-in-hand and giving Americans the proverbial finger.

The immigration issue is perhaps the most clear-cut example of our federal government taking a stand in diametric opposition to the people's will.

George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.

When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply.

The devil smiles and replies, "Since Obama took over, the country has gone to hell, so it's a local call."

Shattered Hopes

I don't know if Hillaroid Clinton some day will become empress of the tottering giant known as the United States of America; I can't rule out the possibility, given that the public saw fit to enthrone the Mulatto Messiah of Dubious Origin. In the event that this dread day dawns, I see her future rule terminating not unlike this scenario:
