HDR 189: Just Think of Government as Family
ALOHA, ALL!! I read today that Barry’s minions are busily adopting a PR campaign that persuades us to think of government as “family.” Yep – they are trying to brainwash us into believing that somehow big, obtrusive government is really just one of our kind, caring relatives. BULL FEATHERS!!! They trotted out this ridiculous meme during the response to Hurricane Irene. When reviewing how various government groups were working together to prepare for hurricane season, FEMA announced “that team includes the entire federal family, state local, and tribal governments….” Let’s see….if government is family does that mean Barry is supposedly the Father figure? LOL!!! It fits that Janet Napolitano is Big Sis and Eric Holder is Big Bro. Of course, Joe Biden has the role of Crazy Uncle down pat. Hey big government – YOU ARE NOT MY FAMILY! You are an intrusive, bureaucratic machine that thumbs its nose at the Constitution and takes away more of my freedoms every day (see below.)
Ruling By Fiat. Barry has perfected the art of ignoring the rule of law and just making, well, his own rules. Case in point: The DREAM Act failed to pass in the Democrat-controlled congress last year, so Barry just went ahead and enacted it himself. Cap and Trade didn’t pass, so Barry is now working behind the scenes with the EPA on new regulations that will kill the coal industry. Charles Krauthammer explains it well: The O’Reilly Factor – Bill O’Reilly – FoxNews.com Now it appears that through the NLRB, Barry has gotten rid of secret ballot elections: » Obama NLRB Eliminates Secret Ballot Elections-Making Card Check Forced Unionism a Reality – Big Government “employees no longer have the right to force an NLRB secret ballot election and allow workers to decide if they want the union or not.” But remember….we are all just one, big happy family.
POP QUIZ: WHEN DID OBAMA SAY THIS?? SURPRISE! It was August 29, 2010…a year ago. (I know – you could read the title on the embed 😉 Seems like Barry’s always going on vacation and making promises about jobs, but never follows through on the jobs part. Can’t wait for his September 7 speech in front of Congress. I hope Joe Wilson calls him a liar again.
THIS WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD EXPLODE! From last year, but worth a repeat. “Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl told the audience at a North Phoenix Tea Party town hall meeting that during a private, one-on-one meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office, the President told him, regarding securing the southern border with Mexico, “The problem is, . . . if we secure the border, then you all won’t have any reason to support ‘comprehensive immigration reform.'”
In Keeping With The Family Theme – Barack Obama’s uncle has been arrested and held as illegal immigrant | The Australian “Official records say Onyango Obama, 67, was picked up outside the Chicken Bone Saloon in Framingham, Massachusetts, at 7.10pm on August 24. Police say he nearly crashed his Mitsubishi 4×4 into a patrol car, and then insisted that the officer should have given way to him. A report filed with the Framingham District Court said that a breathalyser at the police station registered his blood alcohol at 0.14mg/100ml of blood, above the state limit of 0.08mg.” BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE! Video: President Obama’s uncle had Social Security ID | Western Journalism.com “President Obama’s accused drunken-driving uncle — who was busted after a near collision with a Framingham cop — has had a valid Social Security number for at least 19 years, despite being an illegal immigrant ordered to be deported back to Kenya.”
Cairo Style Occupation Planned for Washington DC, Starting October 6 – Common American Journal “…an occupation of Freedom Plaza, on Pennsylvania Ave. near the White House, starting October 6. the occupation is openly modeled on that which brought down the Egyptian government. Swanson is quite openly threatening to “shut down’ the US government until his demands are met. Note also the deliberate courting of Ron Paul supporters.”
Obama’s New Economic Advisor Advocated Value Added Tax | CNSnews.com “President Barack Obama’s nominee to chair the President’s Council of Economic Advisors has supported a European-style consumption tax that taxes every stage of production for a good or service, a policy generally called a Value Added Tax, or VAT.”
A Plan To Actually Bring Jobs – Investors.com “House Republicans are launching a pre-emptive strike against the president’s forthcoming jobs plan. Instead of more Obamanomics, they offer real relief for private-sector job producers.”
Warren Buffett’s hokey tax-hike call–Editorial – NYPOST.com “Billionaire Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes — but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid what it’s already owed for years.”
During His Bus Tour, Obama Didn’t Really Ride The Bus “Apparently President Obama only rode the buses for a couple of miles at a time, spending the rest of the time flying from community to community in Air Force One. What’s more, the buses were flown from stop to stop as well.” Well isn’t that just peachy. I can’t WAIT to get this guy out of office!!!!
