Kim Jung Un

Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.

This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.

He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.

So he is made the “Beloved Leader” Of North Korea.


Oh crap!
I’m sorry.

I just remembered that we did the same thing.

We took an arrogant phony community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief.

A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we
made him “Beloved Leader” of the United States.


I’m sorry I brought this up … . Never mind.

WHAT A JOKE! The Real Scoop on Obama’s Trip to Look at Glaciers

55e74eda69e95.image_-300x180Did you see this rather ironic story on Evidently, Mr. Obama is SOOO concerned about the environment that he had fly to Alaska and get his picture taken with the melting glaciers threatening our very existence. The irony is the ‘cost’ to the environment (not to mention, the taxpayers) for making such a monumental trip.


1. Air Force One burns 5 gallons of fuel for every mile it travels.

2. It is roughly 4,000 air miles to Anchorage Alaska from Washington DC thus taking 20,000 gallons of expensive fuel to get there.

3. Jet fuel puts 21.1 pounds of carbon into the atmosphere for every gallon burned thus pumping out 422,000 pounds or 211 tons of CO2 to get to Alaska.

4. It costs $228,000 an hour to operate Air Force One.

5. It is roughly an 8.5 hour flight to Anchorage from DC thus costing $1,938,000 to get President Obama to Alaska.

6. Obama has to get back, so DOUBLE all those costs and impacts for a total of 40,000 gallons of fuel burned, 844,000 pounds or 422 tons of CO2 emitted costing $3,876,000, just to fly Air Force One, so Obama can look like he is doing something about climate change.

7. That does not include any military support planes, multiple gas guzzling limos, accommodations for some 50 secret service agents, local police and other resources. When you add all that in, President Obama probably costs the American taxpayers $10 million or more so he could have his picture taken.

It is beyond all rational thinking to grasp how folks are so easily swayed by the hype surrounding climate change – and the hypocritical ‘stance’ of most liberals. Obama is hypocrite number one. He could care less about the environment – the trip to Alaska actually proved that. His agenda is much greater, but these idiots are too stupid to recognize it.

This whole thing made me think of Ted Cruz’s response to some climate change activists the other day. Did you see the story on Right Scoop?

I’m going to post just Cruz’s bottom line – the point where he schools the activists on the reality of climate change. It’s BRILLIANT. Of course, Cruz isn’t going to get the attention that Obama gets jetting across the country in Air Force One to “save the planet.” Go to Right Scoop and watch the interaction, but here is Cruz’s response when asked if he believed in Climate change…

Cruz- “… Let’s step back for a second and look at this with some historical perspective. Thirty to forty years ago there were a group of political liberal and scientists who said we were facing global cooling. They said we were headed toward a global ice age and the solution to global cooling was increased was massive government control of the economy, the energy sector, and every aspect of our lives. Then the data disproved it. It was not in fact correct that we were seeing global cooling. So that was kind of a problem. Then many of these same political liberals, and many of these same scientists they then latched on to a new theory, it’s called global warming. And the new theory of global warming interestingly enough, the solution was the exact same as the solution had been for global cooling. It was massive government control of the economy, the energy sector, and every aspect of our lives. But then the problem became the data and evidence didn’t back up global warming. In particular if you look at the satellite data. Listen I am the son of two scientists and mathematicians. It is the essence of science to look to the evidence. In the last eighteen years there has been no meaningful recorded warming according to the satellite data. So all of a sudden all these political liberals, the evidence and data didn’t back them up. So then the theory changed to a third version, it’s just been in the last few years when the theory magically transformed into climate change. And climate change from the perspective of a political liberal who wants government power climate change is the perfect pseudo-scientific theory. Why is that? Because it can never be disproven. Whether it’s hotter or colder, whether is wetter or drier the climate is always changing. Now you asked a question, ‘do you believe in climate change?’. Of course! From the dawn of time the climate has been changing. Until the end of time the climate will change. And yet interestingly enough the political liberals, their solution to climate change is exactly the same as it was to global cooling and global warming. Massive government control of the economy, energy sector, and our lives. And when you start to see politicians who propose the exact same solution to every problem regardless of the facts or the data you start to think these are politicians who just want power over our lives. You know what I’m interested in? I’m interested in the single moms who are working here who are struggling to feed their families and are seeing their electric bills skyrocketing because these political liberals are driving up their electric bills, driving up their energy bills, making it harder and harder to provide for their kids. We need to follow the facts and data and not just give power to a bunch of out of touch elites in Washington over our lives.”

Honestly, I love Cruz! Our nation would benefit from having a man like him as President. As for our ‘acting’ President – well, there is nothing nice to say – and that’s putting it nicely.


The Toothbrush Salesman


The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship.

Little Sally led off. “I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30” she said proudly. “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”

“Very good”, said the teacher.

Little Debbie was next. “I sold magazines” she said. “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”

“Very good, Debbie”, said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath. Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467”, he said. “$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?” “Toothbrushes”, said Little Johnny. “Toothbrushes”, echoed the teacher. “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”

“I found the busiest corner in town”, said Little Johnny. “I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.” They all said the same thing; “Hey, this tastes like dog poop!” I would say, “It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush?” “I used the President Obama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it’s free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”

Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment.
Bless his little heart.

Insight into How We Are Turning into Greece

by Mark homebarrons-cover-3

In order to turn a town, city, state, or nation into Greece, you just need obscure terminology and plausible deniability.

The New York Time’s Dealbook blog has a great recent post: “Bad Math and a Coming Public Pension Crisis.”

The thing to remember when you read the post is that someone could have reported this five years ago or ten years ago. It could have been an above-the-fold headline instead of a blog post. It could have been a series of stories.

But no one at the Times wants to do that. They work for the people who plunder us and hope to get out of the game before it collapses. A story like this shows that the cracks in the foundation are now too obvious to be ignored.

When Jim Palermo was serving as a trustee of the village of La Grange, Ill., he noticed something peculiar about the local police officers and firefighters. They were not going to live as long as might be expected, at least according to pension tables.

After Mr. Palermo dug into the numbers, he found that the actuary — the person who advises pension plan trustees about how much money to set aside — was using a mortality table from 1971 that showed La Grange’s roughly 100 police officers and firefighters were expected to die, on average, before reaching 75, compared with 79 under a more recent table.

That seems like obvious fraud with a plan to be out of the system before someone realized it was broken and was held responsible for fixing it. By using the wrong tables, the government was given a false justification for not setting aside as much money.

Assuming shorter life spans reduces annual contributions and frees up money for other things, like bigger current paychecks. And if the plan bases pensions on pay, as those in most American cities do, shortening the workers’ life spans on paper could lead to both fatter paychecks now and bigger pensions in the future. In La Grange’s case, those four years meant tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to each retiree.

Now actuaries are worried about getting blamed for the looming economic implosion that will soon set upon us. The odd thing is that these worried actuaries use language that seems to indicate they think members of their profession are being wrongly blamed and then flip to language that indicates they are guilty.

[See also, “Warren Buffet Is as Much a “Tapeworm” as the Pensions He Finally Talks About.”]

“Actuaries make a juicy target,” said Mary Pat Campbell, an actuary who responded to the board’s call for comments.

She expressed concern that elected officials were using actuaries to lend respectability to “questionable behavior” like funding pensions with borrowed money, picking risky investments and “enacting benefit improvements based on lowballed costs.”

Other commentators have focused on the opacity of actuaries’ calculations and reports to the boards of trustees that govern public pension plans.

Trustees need clear and honest projections and do not receive them, a former pension trustee from Kentucky, Christopher Tobe, wrote.

I don’t know if the trustees really wanted “clear and honest projections,” but it was obviously the actuaries job to provide them regardless.

Another commentator, Mark Glennon, told the board that actuaries were churning out reports that no one but other actuaries could understand, providing cover for elected officials who were letting problems spin out of control.

“Chicago represents the most glaring example,” wrote Mr. Glennon, the founder of an online news service, WirePoints, which covers the fiscal morass in Illinois. “An actuary could have looked only briefly at some of its pension reports from years ago and seen the calamity to come. Reporters, political leadership and most pension trustees could not. Those who could understand were able to remain silent.”

But reporters could have asked for assistance. They didn’t want to know.

Pensions are massively underfunded now all over the country.


Obama’s Private Armies (But Who Pays The Bill?)

by Franklin D. Leupp

Now that the Republican Congress has obliterated the lines
between the two parties, it’s time to get on to more important
things. But are there any more items on the docket more
important than secure borders between the drug and human
smugglers south of the border and the ranchers and American
Citizens attempting to guard their property and families on this
side? Or the right of any individual to either buy health
insurance or decline it? Or the right to own weapons to protect
his property and family but denied the available bullets to line
up in the muzzles?

In the Gospel of John, he begins with “In the beginning was the
Word…” And it follows with stunning truth. According to the
Congressional “scriptures,” there seems to be no “truth” to even
the beginning. There will be no amnesty! No, Sir! We’ll not
approve a budget for Department of Homeland Security unless the
President’s executive overreach in amnesty for a million or so
illegal immigrants is addressed. That should have included an
“amen.” Instead, as with most of the other flimsy and empty
rhetoric coming from the RINO department, it’s just “Oh, we were
just kidding.” It’s not just the RINO’s, however, there’s a long
history of starting strong and ending at first base. Remember
Senator Joe Lieberman denouncing Bill Clinton in the worst
condemnation heard on the senate floor and then turning right
around and refusing to vote to impeach him? I guess we aren’t
supposed to remember history, are we?

In the upcoming weeks we will be hearing much concerning Obama’s
selection for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. You will be
hearing the same rhetoric over again. There will likely be many
who oppose her on authentic grounds of being another renegade as
dangerous as her predecessor – but in the end there will be
approval and lots of hugs and well-wishes. They could just spare
us the agony and expense of the hearings and issue all of Obama’s
leftwingers green stamps. Remember the hearings for Robert Bork
and how the Democrats deprived us of a genuinely qualified judge?
And how it went with Sotomayer and Kagan? The Dem’s in power
prevailed to a man and the Rep’s caved like quicksand. The
template for any future hope of dismantling Obamacare, saving our
Constitution and curtailing illegal immigration is looking more
like a pretzel as the days pass. The conservatives elected to
both houses in the last election need all the support they can
get – they continue to be outgunned by the spineless who care
more about their pomp and pride than representing their

In the Senate Environmental & Public Works Committee hearing,
Senator Jeff Sessions excoriates Gina McCarthy, head of the EPA,
who is requesting a six percent increase in EPA’s budget, about
her ignorance of climate change figures (of which there is no
evidence) and could answer none of his questions. Senator
Sessions reminded her that the inflation rate is only two percent
and yet she is requesting six, three times that rate. She
countered that that was President Obama’s proposal. Of course,
that should have been quite evident from the start. The EPA is
Obama’s private weapon against all Americans, to regulate
everything in our lives including the air we breathe. No more
coal mines – never mind the millions of job losses; no more wood-
burning stoves – you folks out in the hinterland can burn cow
chips! Well, until that gets regulated, too. There was another
figure in history that comes to mind regarding a small man with
an immense chip: Attila the Hun.

The point of all this is that it is becoming increasingly
evident that Congress has sunk into irrelevance. Everything that
Obama and the Democrats have conjured up in the middle of the
night meets with passionate rhetoric and then appeasement. It
appears that even if the Republicans could muster a two thirds
majority to override a presidential veto, there would be more
than enough liberal Republicans jumping ship to invalidate the
concensus. We desperately need a conservative in the White
House … and a true, honest two party system.




A reminder for those who forgot or for many that didn’t know for many that didn’t know
Here is what will happen on January 1, 2015 :
Top Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%
Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%
Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%
Remember this fact: These taxes were all passed only with democrat votes, no republicans voted for these taxes.
These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.



From the LA Times:

Interesting that the LA times did this. Lou Dobbs reported this on CNN and it cost him his job. The only network we would see this on would be FOX. All the others are staying away from it. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican this should be of great interest to you!

Just One State – be sure and read the last part… try for 3 times.

This is only one State… If this doesn’t open eyes, nothing will!

From the L. A. Times.

1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County (L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.

2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for bytaxpayers.

5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in Los Angeles are Spanish speaking.

10. In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County.)

(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States’ annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens
I think that California should secede from the union and become part of Mexico.

3 Black Males Drag White Woman From Car and Beat Her In St Louis

3 Black Males Drag White Woman From Car and Beat Her In St Louis
This is unbelievable. Welcome to Obamaland.

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis police are investigating an alleged hate crime in the Bevo neighborhood early this morning that left a 26-year-old woman beaten.
According to a police report, at about 5:30 a.m., a Bosnian woman was driving on the 4600 block of Lansdowne when three black males in their late-teens to early-20s stepped in front of her vehicle.
When the woman tried to drive around them, the suspects reportedly pulled out a firearm, so she stopped the car.
After hitting her windshield with a crowbar, the suspects pulled the woman from her car, threw her on the ground and kicked her.
A suspect grabbed her purse, searched it, and told the others it was empty. All three suspects then fled the scene.
Police say the woman said she thought the crime was racially motivated because the suspects asked her if she was Bosnian.
Slay responds
“This has all the appearances of a hate crime based on the information that we have,” St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay responds. “The fact that they did suggest that she was a Bosnian – she was a Bosnian lady. We’ve already turned this over to the FBI.”
Slay says he has been meeting with the Bosnian community already to discuss their concerns about safety – this after the hammer attack that killed a 32-year-old man in the Bosnian neighborhood earlier this week.
Bevo neighborhood
KMOX is speaking with residents of the Bevo neighborhood, following a week of shootings and murder, about what is causing all the violence.
Resident Michael Tallie says he thinks much of it is racially motivated.
“I would have to say so. I think it’s just blacks taking there aggression out on anybody that’s white,” he says. “It’s bad, it’s messed up, I hate it.”
When asked if white people should be scared, Tallie replied “everyone should be scared.”
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department released the following information:
Incident: Robbery 1st
Location: 4600 block of Lansdowne
Date/Time: 12/5/14 @ 05:25
Victim: 26-year old white female
Suspect(s): Three unknown black males, late teens-early 20s
​The victim stated she was driving in the 4600 block of Lansdowne when three unknown suspects walked in front of her vehicle. When the victim attempted to drive around them, the suspects displayed a firearm and ordered her to stop her vehicle, to which she complied. One of the suspects then approached the driver’s side, produced an object, possibly a crowbar, and struck the windshield of her vehicle. The suspects then ordered the victim to exit her vehicle. The victim refused and one of the suspects pulled her out of the car. During this time, another suspect opened the passenger side door of the vehicle, went through the victim’s purse and stated that it was empty. One of the suspects then pushed the victim to the ground and kicked her. All three suspects then fled the scene. A passerby located the victim on the ground and contacted this department. EMS responded, however the victim refused further medical treatment and said she would respond to a hospital at a later time. As of now, officers are investigating this incident as a “bias crime” based on the victim’s account of the incident. The investigation is ongoing.

Happy Days Are Here Again

So long sad timesHappy Days
Go long bad times
We are rid of you at last

Howdy gay times
Cloudy gray times
You are now a thing of the past

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let’s sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

Can you believe it the Bush recession has been over for five years, unemployment is down, the stock market is up, and everything is coming up roses.  There is a flat screen on every wall, a smart phone in every hand, and flying cars just can’t be that far away.  The Bush wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have either been won or soon will be or as the winning slogan said, “GM is alive and Osama is dead.”  The Arab Spring has toppled tyrants and the glory of the administration’s foreign policy savants have ricocheted from the faculty lounge to the UN.  Doesn’t it just feel like another American Century?

The Fed keeps pumping and the Big Board keeps jumping.  The NSA watches us all without a warrant, and the man who tells us about it is a traitor.Congress has to sue the President in an attempt to get him to enforce laws unless of course he wants to change a law unilaterally.  The Court strikes down unconstitutional move after unconstitutional move by the adjunct instructor in the Oval Office.  The IRS is used to suppress the votes of Conservatives, its leaders either lying to Congress or pleading the Fifth while the Attorney General refuses to appoint a special prosecutor just as he refused in Fast and Furious and Benghazi.  Of course if you want to require a photo id to vote you’re a racist attempting to suppress the vote while you need a photo ID to get into the DNC. There’s nothing to see here move so along.

Common Core is poised to take our educational system to higher heights.  After more than 100 years of Progressive Education and generations of Federal intrusions into local school boards America now successfully spends more per capita on education than any other country.  The self-esteem of our students ranks as the highest in the world even as our grades slide.  In other words our students are doing poorly, but they think they are doing well.  It reminds me of a foreman in a factory who was in one of my management classes.  He shared an incident in his shop.  A young man was hired as a material handler who wore his pants down around his knees.  He constantly had to use one hand to hold up his pants while using the free hand to handle material.  When the foreman asked him, “Don’t you think you could get more done if you used both hands?”  The young man answered, “No I’m doing all right.”  The job may not get done but at least he feels good about what he’s doing.  Is this is the American Way in the New Normal?

Russia swallows Crimea, China launches its first aircraft carrier, the Islamic State declares itself to be the Caliphate some were crazy to predict.  Oh Happy Day!  Once again America is respected in the world after that cowboy Bush brought us so low.  Reagan said it was once again Morning in America and now we have Mourning in America as the fruit of Progressive policies, and cum bi ya diplomacy leads us from crisis to crisis.  Then again we should never let a good crisis go to waste said President Obama’s first Chief of Staff before heading to Chicago to strengthen the gun laws.

Looking forward there is good news and bad news.  The good news is that thanks to that paragon of progressivism FDR there are term limits on the presidency.  The bad news is our southern sieve and the import a voter program brings in thousands of undocumented democrats everyday as Flat Broke Hillary and the transition team waits in the wings with self-proclaimed Native American Elizabeth Warren as an understudy.

I used to say, “We made it through the Second World War and we can make it through Bill Clinton.”  Then I said, “We made it through the Cold War we can make it through Bush the Younger.”  Now I wonder, “If we threw away Iraq and we’re about to throw away Afghanistan, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona how will we survive two more years?”

We may not be in Kansas anymore and we may have followed the white rabbit through the looking glass but at least illegal immigrants can now get drivers licenses in Arizona.  Can anyone say “Motor Voter” orcoming to a neighborhood near you soon.

Altogether shout it nowHappy Days 2
There’s no one
Who can doubt it now
So let’s tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again

Your cares and troubles are gone
There’ll be no more from now on

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So, Let’s sing a song of cheer again

Happy times
Happy nights
Happy days
Are here again!
