Hump Day Report: Fair Is Fair?

ALOHA, ALL!! So what’s fair? According to our “brilliant” President, everything in this country needs to be fair in order for people to succeed. Really? Were things fair for the Pilgrims who came to the New World to start a new life? Were things fair for the millions of LEGAL immigrants who came here in the early to mid-twentieth century and made successful lives for themselves? Who determines “fairness?” 0bama wants to be the arbiter of what’s fair by making government even bigger….the nanny state….Marxism. King Barry. He doesn’t understand that the inalienable right in the Constitution is “…the pursuit of happiness” not “happiness.” #WeCan’tWait for 2012 – then we’ll be happy indeed!!!!

Barry shows his cards. Obama: Limited Gov’t That Preserves Free Markets ‘Doesn’t Work. It Has Never Worked’ | CNSnews.com “…President Barack Obama argued that while a limited government that preserves free markets “speaks to our rugged individualism” as Americans, such a system “doesn’t work” and “has never worked” and that Americans must look to a more activist government that taxes more, spends more and regulates more if they want to preserve the middle class.” And this: The Last Incarnation of Barack Obama

If this was seventy years ago, we’d all be in shock. (We should still be in shock, but for different reasons.) Many of our loved ones would either be dead or heading off to war. What a difference several decades make: Pearl Harbor veterans remember how paradise suddenly turned into hell – Common American Journal

Here’s how the 0bama girls commemorated the Pearl Harbor attack. What – no spam musubi???? Obama Daughters’ School Features Japanese-Inspired Lunch Menu on Pearl Harbor Day – Common American Journal

Isn’t it time for someone to go to jail??? Fast and Furious document dump: Shocking lawlessness exposed – Common American Journal “Newly released documents on Operation Fast and Furious met with little media comment on Friday. The latest document dump by the Justice Department reveals how top DOJ officials hesitated and struggled to respond to questions asked by members of House and Senate committees probing the law enforcement-firearms snafu. The documents also revealed that Justice Department officials provided faulty data and inaccurate information to U.S. lawmakers such as Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA).”

New Fast and Furious website: Fast and Furious Investigation “House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa today launched a new website – http://www.FastAndFuriousInvestigation.com – to explain and serve as a resource for the congressional investigation into the Justice Department’s Operation Fast and Furious….The site will webcast today’s Judiciary Committee hearing.”

ICYMI: 25 House-Passed Jobs Bills Stuck in the Democratic-Run Senate “The House passed three more common-sense jobs bills last week, bringing the current number of jobs bills awaiting a vote in the Democratic-controlled Senate to 25. Each of these bills is focused on removing government barriers – excessive regulations, the threat of tax hikes, and ‘stimulus’ spending policies – that are hurting job growth, and many have bipartisan support. Speaker Boehner has called on President Obama to “urge Senate Democrats to immediately vote” on the 25 jobs bills before them.”

I don’t think Barry’s too happy about this site. New REINS Act Website Takes On Red Tape & the President’s “Economic Uncertainty Machines” “Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY) launched a new website today highlighting the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, legislation designed to eliminate excessive regulations and red tape that are holding back job growth.” The REINS Act is on the GOP agenda this week but the site was actually launched in June…check it out! UPDATE: REINS ACT PASSED THE HOUSE YESTERDAY. HERE’S WHY IT’S IMPORTANT:

The Debt Generation – are they waking up?

Final Thought: “It is less important to redistribute wealth than it is to redistribute opportunity.”— Arthur Vandenberg, American journalist and senator (1884-1951)

This is good, too! “Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.”— Dennis Wholey, 20th/21st-century self-help author and journalist



HDR 196: Cronyism, Corruption and Scandal – Welcome To The Obama White House

ALOHA, ALL!!!  I know we were all waiting with baited breath for Barry to announce his jobs plan and how we’re going to pay for it.  He already introduced his “Buffet Tax” on millionaires – how will this bring down our deficit?  It’s just more class warfare and pandering to his base.  It more appropriately should be called a “Re-Election Tax” since Barry is hoping this “rich people are bad” approach will mobilize the masses to vote for him in 2012.  Reaction to Obama’s plan has been swift:  Ryan: Still Waiting for Credible Plan from President Obama | Committee On The Budget  However, the GOP better get out in front of this ridiculous “plan” and frame the message…otherwise Barry and his minions will effectively use their obstructionist argument against them in 2012.  It could enable Barry to win the election….But this White House has a sword of Damocles hanging over its head that’s ready to fall at any time – corruption.

Solyndra:  Was Solyndra an Impeachable Offense? | Expose Obama

Fast and Furious:  Rep. Issa: Operation Fast & Furious Went To The White House | RealClearPolitics  Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Darrell Issa (R-California) says it is now very apparent, if it was not before, that the White House was deeply connected in the “Fast & Furious” mission where guns were trafficked across the US-Mexico border.

LightSquared:  Bombshell: General accused WH of pressuring him to change testimony for Democratic donor « Hot Air  With the White House already reeling over the Solyndra collapse, a new scandal may have erupted today that could make the disappearance of $535 million in taxpayer funds look like a paperwork glitch. …an accusation made to members of Congress from a four-star Air Force general that claimed the White House pressured him to change his testimony to boost a big donor to the Democratic Party.

Department of Justice:  The American Spectator : Deep Corruption at the Obama Justice Department  Start rattling the chains. Start ratcheting up the hue and cry. Fire up the masses. It’s long past time to force mass resignations at, and possible prosecutions of members of, the Obama Justice Department — and, more broadly, of the West Wing itself.

Tell-All Book:  Obama’s White House is a ‘hostile environment where women are treated like meat’ | Mail Online  “According to the Post, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn says in the book: ‘This place would be in court for a hostile workplace because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.’  The book’s writer, Ron Suskind, is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who interviewed over 200 people.  It describes a “divided and dysfunctional” White House where ” no grown-ups are in charge.”  Sounds about right.

And This Little Detail:  Isn’t It Unconstitutional For Obama’s Stimulus Sequel To Be Introduced In The Senate? – Common American Journal  “On Tuesday of this week Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced the President’s much-hyped stimulus sequel, officially known as the American Jobs Act of 2011.  Now, whether you’re for the bill or against it, isn’t it illegal for a bill like this to be introduced first in the Senate?”  (Sidenote:  “American Jobs Act” isn’t even the correct name – it has no name since no Congressman sponsored it in the House.  See HDR 195.  But when it comes to Barry and his crew, it’s obvious that rules don’t matter.)

Joke Time:  An Illegal Alien, a Muslim and a Communist go into a bar. The bartender asks: “What can I get you, Mr. President?”  (Thanks to Carl for the comedic breather.)

Final Thought:  “It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of inadequacy and impotence. We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression.” – Eric Hoffer
