The Left's Scrooge McDuck Mythology of the Wealthy

This is an excellent article about the liberal view of money.
Scrooge McDuck is wealthy. Thanks to Disney's distribution, Donald's rich uncle is known the world over. Everybody knows about McDuck's multi-story vault with a diving board, and how he literally "dives in," swimming through his fortune of gold bars, silver coins, and hundred dollar bills.

The money is just sitting there. Never mind Scrooge McDuck earned the money; he isn't using it, so McDuck doesn't need it. In fact, McDuck would still be rich if he gave over half of it away to those who really need it -- like kids in Mexico, the Philippines, and Afghanistan. Obviously, the rich foreigners, like McDuck, are selfish jerks for not sharing their 'luck.'

Reasonable adults can forgive the naiveté of poorly educated kids who don't understand finance. Educated people know Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Mike Bloomberg don't go swimming through their wealth in a high-rise vault like McDuck. Their money is invested; their wealth is primarily on paper. If the celebrity super-rich ever tried to liquidate their assets, much of the value would evaporate before they could click "sell". Even selling a small percentage of their holdings could cause key stocks to collapse, impact the wider market, and result in real -- not paper -- layoffs.

Early Voting For Louisiana District 3 Election

    There will be an election for congressional district 3 on December 8.  Jeff Landry is running for re-election and has been endorsed by Mark Levin and others.  Early voting for this election will be from Nov. 24-Dec. 1, 2012 at these locations.  You can support the Jeff Landry campaign here.

The Amnesty Sell-Out

From an American Thinker article:
If you want to know what open borders Republicans will sound like when they betray this nation's sovereignty, take it from the horse's mouth: Carlos Gutierrez, head of Mitt Romney's Hispanic outreach, told CNN's Candy Crowley, "[T]he far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn't belong."
What Gutierrez is saying is very instructive: He is demonstrating that Republicans will have to belittle the silent majority in order to cave on immigration. You simply can't normalize illegal activity unless you defame the people who maintain the norm. In this case, people who believe that our border matters will have to be ridiculed and marginalized.
At least the battle lines are being drawn. Gutierrez is speaking for a group of Republican elites who want to redefine decent people as "far right." This is clearly an insult directed towards those people who believe that our nation's border should be respected, who are sick of stagnating wages and racial preferences, and who believe that we shouldn't reward illegal activity.

Read the entire article here.

We must ignore this and keep pressure on our representatives and senators so they will not cave in to this agenda from the Bush clan and their RINO cohorts.

A Few Priorities

     With the election over and President Obama re-elected feelings of fear and disappointment are running high.  There have been many articles in the conservative media analyzing the reasons for the debacle on November 6 and I see no reason to continue down that path.  The Left and the GOP Establishment are now planning their next moves in order to achieve their goals and we in the conservative movement must do the same.  For this reason I have listed some items below that we need to focus on.  Keep your heads up and let's get to work.


1.  Stopping Obamacare - Obamacare remains the law, but the states can refuse to implement it. See the links below for more information on this and encourage your governor to stand with us.

Why governors should not implement state insurance exchanges under Obamacare

 

2. The Lame Duck session of Congress - There are many issues coming up during the lame duck session. Everyone is hearing about the "fiscal cliff" and we must make sure that the Republicans do not cave in and give President Obama what he wants. We also need to contact our Senators so they stay strong in opposition to treaties favored by the White House.  See the links below for more information.

 3. Jeff Landry for Congress - Jeff Landry is running for re-election in Louisiana's third congressional district.  Landry has been endorsed by a number of conservative and tea party organizations and needs our help. 

The election is on December 8, 2012.  

Early voting is from November 24 - December 1, 2012

4. 2013 elections - There are elections in a number of states in 2013.  The most critical of these in my opinion will be the state and local elections in Virginia. We must do everything possible to get conservatives into as many offices as possible at all levels of the government in Virginia.  Now is the time to begin supporting conservative candidates and getting people registered to vote, including teens as they become eligible.

Sarah Palin: Who is running our country?

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:
Who is running our country? We've got a CIA Director sharing security info with his mistress using an unsecure gmail account. We've got the delusional Susan Rice blaming the death of an ambassador on a Youtube video. We've got Iran firing on one of our drones a week before the election. We've got the White House either ignorant of or covering up all of this. Who is minding the store? Everywhere we
look we see the rank incompetence or corruption of the people who are supposedly running our country and our major institutions. Let's hope that responsible reporters at Obama's press conference today ask the right questions Americans deserve answers to.

Here's my question for the president: As our nation's chief executive you claim to be unaware of the most important and tragic situations we're facing; so, as a former chief executive, I'd like to know how long it takes for your staff to tell you things like: "Sir, your CIA Director is under investigation"?

Sarah Palin: Don’t Lose Heart

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:
America, don’t lose heart. This election is not an “Obama mandate,” nor is it a rejection of conservatism. Unanswered ads like this one running in blue collar swing states defined Romney early on, and the Obama media also piled on with the narrative that Romney would harm the middle class. (As I personally have witnessed, once a bell is rung by a biased media, it’s impossible to un-ring it.) Ironically, it’s Obama’s socialist policies that will destroy America’s working class as he outsources opportunities.

Hang in there, America. Fight for what is right. Don’t look to government or any politician to solve your problems. Government can’t make you happy, healthy, wealthy or wise. Obama is a master at reading the right “soaring” words fed into his teleprompter, but actions speak louder than words. So, hold tight to 2 Corinthians 4:8 because we’re in for a wild ride.

We must survive. United. One nation under God.

"We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed." – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9.

Sarah Palin: This Tuesday our country’s future is in our hands.

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:
This Tuesday our country’s future is in our hands.

What’s past is prologue. We know what we will get from a second Obama term because we’ve all endured his first term. We know how well he kept his 2008 campaign promises. Do we really believe he’ll keep his 2012 promises?

Do we believe the word of a man who promised he wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class, but then slammed the middle class wi

th a massive tax hike in the form of Obamacare (and don’t forget that his own lawyers argued before the Supreme Court that the individual mandate is a tax)?

Do we really believe he won’t raise taxes even more on every American in order to pay for his wasteful spending and his crony capitalism?

Do we believe that the same president who increased the debt in his first term by more than all the first 41 presidents combined will suddenly decide to cut the deficit in his second term?

Do we believe that the president whose reckless spending led us to the first credit rating downgrade in our nation’s history will suddenly become a responsible fiscal manager if we reelect him?

Do we really believe that a president who promised us that job creation was his number one priority despite month after month of dismal job numbers now has a credible “plan” for the job growth that eluded him for the past four years?

Do we believe that the same president who shut down the Keystone Pipeline and blocks domestic oil and natural gas development at every turn is somehow going to reduce our dangerous dependence on foreign oil and lead us to energy independence?

Do we really believe that our country’s national security is safe in the hands of a president whose administration denied security and assistance to our consulate under attack on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on America, and then blamed that consulate attack and the death of our ambassador on a “spontaneous” protest over an obscure YouTube video despite all the real time evidence to the contrary?

Do we believe that a president who was caught on a hot mic telling the Russian president that he would have “more flexibility” after his reelection is being honest about his plans for a second term?

We know what we will get from a second Obama term. We will get the same failed policies. We will get Obamacare locked into law without any chance of undoing this dangerous legislation and any chance to seek real patient-centered health care reform. We will get a debt crisis. We will get more inflation and higher gas prices. We will get tax increases. We will get fewer jobs. We will get more small businesses collapsing under the weight of higher taxes and unfair regulation. We will get more corruption and crony capitalism favoring the Obama administration’s friends. We will get less domestic energy development and increased dependence on terrorist sponsoring foreign regimes for our energy needs. We will get a “blame America first” foreign policy that bows to our enemies and snubs our friends like Israel and leaves America and the world less safe. We will get less opportunity and security for ourselves and for our children.

In 2008, Barack Obama promised to fundamentally transform America. And for all his failures and broken promises, that’s the one thing he has delivered on. He’s transformed us from a nation of hope to one of anxiety. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Tuesday is our chance to turn things around.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have offered a credible alternative to Barack Obama’s failed policies. Governor Romney understands how the free market works. His pro-growth economic policies will benefit all Americans. He has promised to move us toward energy independence, deficit reduction, and responsible entitlement reform that honors our commitment to our seniors and keeps faith with future generations. Governor Romney deserves a chance to lead. President Obama had his chance. He’s failed, and we can’t afford to go backwards.

We must also remember the many good Republican candidates who are running for the House and Senate this year. They deserve our support as well. If you are like me, you have watched these campaigns, learned about the candidates, and know where they stand despite the skewed lens of a partisan media bent on keeping liberal leadership in power. We saw the destruction a Democrat controlled White House, House, and Senate brought us after the 2008 election. Our country can’t afford that again. Your vote is the only safeguard against that happening.

On Tuesday, please vote for Governor Mitt Romney and the commonsense conservatives running for office in your states.

Voting is our duty and our right. We must never forget the immense sacrifices generations of Americans, including our brave men and women in uniform today, have made to give us this right. And we must never forget the duty we owe to generations of Americans yet to be born to exercise our right to vote prudently. The White House and control of the Senate is in the balance in this election, and every vote will count.

I firmly believe it is our responsibility to restore this country and secure the blessings of liberty and prosperity for our children, just as it was secured for us. This is our sacred duty to the past and to the future. We will succeed in this so help us God.

God bless you and God bless America.

With an Alaskan heart,

Sarah Palin

Ted Yoho: This Race Has Turned Negative

From Ted Yoho's Facebook page:
Friends,
I am sorry to tell you that this race has turned negative in the remaining days. I had hoped that my opponent would stay above the fray because as the son of a diplomat, I had higher expectations.

Last night, a robo call from my opponent went out to voters in our district telling voters that I favored higher taxes and directed them to a website that he falsely created under my name using my logo and contact information.


Further, he has refused to file any of the legally required Federal Election Commission reports to date. How can we expect a man to write laws in Congress when he can’t even follow the laws already on the books?

Not only have his actions and slanderous behavior been offensive to me and my supporters, they are embarrassing to him.

I recall a commercial that we put out a few months ago that talked about this type of nasty, typical politician behavior.

So if you are sick and tired of the mud-slinging, let JR know that his last-ditch, desperate attempts to sway voters are unacceptable, and share this with your friends who may have been contacted. He can be reached at (904)531-4737 or Facebooked @ jrforcongress.
And again, thanks so much for your support!

Ted

Go here to support Ted Yoho for Congress.

Sarah Palin: Deb Fischer Needs Our Help

From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:
Deb Fischer needs our help to win her crucial Senate race. Right now she is under attack in Nebraska from outside interest groups and Harry Reid's Super PAC. Her liberal opponent, who's spent the last decade living in Manhattan, has called
in his old Washington colleagues to support his campaign. Washington fears commonsense leaders like Deb Fischer because she's not going to Washington to consolidate her own power; she is going there to help return power to the people the way the Founders intended. Please follow the link below and join me in supporting Deb Fischer today.
