Socialism Tested

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. 
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.. 
The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that. 
Remember, there IS a test coming up. The 2012 elections.

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.By: ""Ed Will

Crisis List

During a crisis, people will be required to fend for themselves for a period of time because whatever medical help there may be, it will be extremely limited.  The first list to consider is based on the simple question, "What can I do to help myself?" 
First of all, if you have not had a first-aid course, I highly recommend you at least get a book such as the one on the right.  You'll be surprise how much you don't know.  and it will be handy in situations unfamiliar to you and the people around you.  Click here for THE LIST of food items and other essentials.

Something to consider:  Help friends and family get started on their survival lists too, because guess whose house they're coming to when they need help. . .

Whose side is Obama On?

Iranian Missile Bases in Venezuela

Iran is building intermediate-range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February.

The clandestine agreement between Venezuela and Iran would mean the Chavez government would fire rocket at Iran’s enemies should the Islamic Republic face military strikes. Read more. . .

 U.S. scraps missile defense shield plans

The US missile defense complex in Poland, also called the European Interceptor Site (EIS) was part of the Ballistic Missile Defense European Capability of the US.  The system was intended to intercept missiles from Iran.  Russian Leader Putin had a fit about it and threatened another cold war if construction was not halted immediately.  Obama obeyed Putin and drastically  altered the program to the point it might as well not even be there. Meanwhile, Iran builds missile bases in Venezuela. (see above)  

There are those who believe Iran when they say they are not building missiles so there is no need to worry about Europe, because Ahmadinejad and Putin are such stand up guys--- they would never LIE about such intentions!  Would they?  They say they just want nuclear POWER Plants.  They care so much about the environment after all.  Those missile bases in Venezuela have no connection to Iran or Russia.  Russia is our friend, right? (sarcasm) Never mind that Putin has agreed to help Chavez with his nuclear technology.  Never mind that Russia has been providing nuclear assistance to Iran for years.  There can't be any connection between Russia and Iran and even if there is, it certainly couldn't lead to another Cuban-type Missile Crisis with Venezuela.  So of course Obama would think it was best in the interests of peace to just scrap any kind of defense system for Europe OR for the United States.  And the moon really is made of green cheese. . .but we'll never know that for sure now either, because NASA's space program has been neutralized and if we ever do need to go to up there for anything, such as to perform maintenance on whatever defense system might be up there, we have to ask RUSSIA for a ride.  Isn't that handy?

Fast and Furious Scandal -- 
The U.S. government intentionally sells assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels using unwitting and now confused American shop owners as the front men.  The government just lets them walk right over the border without so much as a parking ticket Those cartels use those weapons to kill, among others, a U.S. law enforcement officers. The White House deflects questions on the subject, refuses to cooperate in the investigation and intimidates witnesses. The director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), who watched the gun sales on video in his office, stonewalls Congress. So does the Justice Department. The whistleblower that exposed it all is fired. Read more. . . .

Under the Direct Commercial Sales program, the U.S. State Department regulates and licenses businesses to sell weapons and defense services and training for export. Last year, according to U.S. statistics, the program was used to provide Mexico $416.5 million worth of weapons and equipment, including military-grade weaponry.
The program is different from the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program, which operates on a government-to-government basis.
Plumlee said military-grade weapons were found in a Juárez warehouse two years ago, and some of them were moved later to a ranch elsewhere in Juárez. Arms stash houses have also been reported in places across the border from Columbus and Antelope Wells, N.M.
"They've found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era," Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor. El Paso Times

Obama's National Security Director for North America Kevin O’Reilly, knew about operation Fast and Furious as early as September 2010, but for some reason seems unwilling to testify before the investigating committee. Conversely, those who "share responsibility for mistakes that were made,” as ATF supervisor William G. McMahon said in testimony to the Oversight committee, got promoted for taking one for the team.

Issa, head of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee,  noted that there has been “political interference at the highest level” throughout the Oversight committee’s Fast and Furious investigation.

It really makes a person quake in their boots when they hear that certain Muslim terrorist organizations are training just south of the border, being trained to pass for Mexican illegals because even terrorists know that nothing happens to illegals when they break the law.

So what are the Cartels doing with these weapons? Of course some are being used to protect their drug trade from legitimate law enforcement in Mexico but is it possible they are selling them to the terrorist training camps?  Merely harmless training aids, right.  I'm sure the terrorists would pay good money for them.  The question is,  "Was it really poor management on Holder and Obama's part, or was it a deliberate attempt to arm enemies of the United States?"  What is known for sure is that  hundreds of guns are now being used to commit crimes against not only border agents, but Mexican and American civilians as well. 

The Bin Laden Raid

Assuming the intelligence was correct that it even WAS OBL, why were  the seals  illegally sent into the country of an ally without their knowledge or permission? You would think if they were using a helicopter  with Top Secret Stealth technology  to get there, that there would have been some standing order to destroy the helicopter if they had to leave it behind.  You know, so there wouldn't be any chance that the Taliban would sell the technology, or at least parts of it to say --- CHINA?  I'm sure the Navy Seals thought of this but I would bet good money that they were specifically ordered NOT to destroy that helicopter.   And sure enough Pakistan was pleased and delighted to share that technology with China.

A senior Afghan government official told AFP on condition of anonymity that Taliban commander Qari Tahir lured US forces to the scene by tipping them off that a Taliban meeting was taking place.
He also said four Pakistanis helped Tahir carry out the strike.
"Now it's confirmed that the helicopter was shot down and it was a trap that was set by a Taliban commander," said the official, citing intelligence gathered from the area.
"The Taliban knew which route the helicopter would take," he continued.
"That's the only route, so they took position on the either side of the valley on mountains and as the helicopter approached, they attacked it with rockets and other modern weapons. It was brought down by multiple shots."
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to discuss the issue, also said President Hamid Karzai's US-backed government "thinks" the attack was retaliation for the May killing of Osama bin Laden. AFP
What makes this even more interesting is the issue of protocol.  Why were so many Navy Seals in one helicopter?  And why were they flying in one of the military's slowest and most cumbersome helicopters?  It costs millions of dollars to train Navy Seals and putting so many on one aircraft flying into hostile territory simply risks too many valuable assets.
Who told the Taliban they were coming?  Who told the Taliban where they'd be?  How did the Taliban know that the same team which conducted the raid would be on that helicopter?  Secretary Gates warned Obama, who was out there strutting around and taking all the credit for the demise of the alleged OBL and throwing out the names of the seals and all kinds of information about the Seal Team, that it would make them targets for retaliation and greatly decrease their overall safety.  Was this the cost of Obama's over zealous political ambitions?  Get OBL, secure some sorely needed political points, then in order to avoid conflict with an offended  Pakistan because protocols were breached--- he had to give them their pound of flesh in order to prevent a full blown international incident.  As is typical of Obama, it was some one else's "flesh" that was on the line.

So to summarize, we have a president who blithely disarms defenses that have taken decades to put in place, he ignores possible military build ups that could pose a threat to the American people and then allows free access to American weapons to hostile forces and known enemies.  And the Media defends him by claiming he is not involved or doesn't know.  To that I reply, "Are you kidding me?  Is that the best you can do?"  So their best defense is "the President is naive and ignorant"  I'm sure we'll all sleep better tonight knowing that.

Tea Party - Info

I am really getting sick of people not understanding how or why the Tea Party got started.  And they don't seem to understand what it really is, either.  The media has lied and twisted it into an entity so far removed from the reality of it, that some people think it's just another Political Party, like the DNC or the GOP.
