Today from Rasmussen:

Just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters say the country is heading in the right direction, the lowest level of confidence found since before President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009.

According to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey taken the week ending Sunday, March 13, 72% of voters now say the country is heading down the wrong track, also at its highest level since before the inauguration.

If this isn’t a vote of no confidence, I don’t know what is.

Representative John Conyers Comes Clean on Health Care

Posted by courage On March - 15 - 2011

As if we didn’t already know, the health care law is the platform toward a single payer government run system:

Be mindful that each of those industrialized countries who currently have government run systems are being bankrupted by the very system.

The Left’s Hate and Threats of Death

Posted by courage On March - 10 - 2011

Update at end, the violence continues.

As a Tea Party Patriot I believe in freedom and fiscal responsibility, because of this belief I’ve been called a racist.  While at local rallies, I witnessed MoveOn attempt to instigate violence with aggressive, in your face screaming and I am called a hate monger.  The former Speaker of the House accused American people concerned about the direction of their country of being astroturf.  A madman creates horrendous violence in Arizona and the local sheriff immediately blames patriots with no proof.  Yes at every turn Tea Party Patriots have been villanized, with no substantial proof.   Even the supposed incident which happened in D.C. during the health care debate, where Representatives were allegedly called the “n-” word was NEVER verified even though a $100K reward was offered for proof.  All false accusations.

What we know with absolute certainty is the left uses violent rhetoric and actions without any hint of decency.  Continually they make threats and here is the latest, directly after the “tolerant left.”  This email was sent to Wisconsin Senators after their vote to limit collective bargaining.

Gangster White House

Posted by courage On March - 7 - 2011

During an interview on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” Tea Party Caucus leader Michele Bachmann (R-MN) refused to back down from previous (2009) comments characterizing the Obama administration as a “gangster government.” She may have even doubled down.

“I don’t take back my statement on gangster government,” she told host David Gregory. “I think that there have been actions that have been taken by this government that I think are corrupt, thoroughly corrupt.”

“I believe the actions of this government have been emblematic of ones that have not been based on true American values,” she added, before coming close to doubling down on her previous comments: “I think the president’s actions in the last two years speak for themselves.”

Posted by courage On February - 15 - 2011

The interview yesterday with  guest  Niall Ferguson (Professor of History at Harvard) on MSNBC  garnered well deserved attention attention across the internet. This is the full unedited version:

Anyone who has watched the floundering of the Obama administration during the last two weeks, knows exactly what the Professor is speaking about.  The entire panel on the Morning Joe set seem uncomfortable with the analysis Mr. Ferguson offers.  But what can be expected from a cast of characters who drank Kool-Aid, only knowing how fawn over the One we’ve been waiting for pResident.  I wonder how soon the Professor will be asked back as a guest to provide historical analysis?

Indeed Professor Ferguson, touchy, feelie speeches are not a substitute for having a strategy.

What Egyptians Really Want and the Ominious Muslim Brotherhood

Posted by courage On February - 11 - 2011

From Investors Business Daily:

Editorial: What Egyptians Really Want

Islamofascism: Romantics in Western media expect “democracy” to flower from the anti-Mubarak rioting in Cairo. But polling shows Egyptians actually seek strict Islamic rule.

According to a major survey conducted last year by the Pew Research Center, adults in Egypt don’t crave Western-style democracy, as pundits have blithely trumpeted throughout coverage of the unrest.

Far from it, the vast majority of them want a larger role for Islam in government. This includes making barbaric punishments, such as stoning adulterers and executing apostates, the law of their country. With the ouster of their secular, pro-American leader, they may get their wish.

Among highlights from the Pew poll:

CBO Director Confirms What Many Against Obamacare Argued

Posted by courage On February - 10 - 2011

OBAMACARE is a job KILLER. 

Just Thursday, I was in a discussion with a co-worker, a guy I have known for almost 30 years.  He’s a good guy, intelligent and strongly Democratic.  We were talking about the Health Care law, with his opinion being that the law was needed.  We sparred back on forth as to what exactly could have been passed instead of an overreaching life intruding bill which became law. He believes the bill originally started as small steps, steps him and I can agree on which then exploded with addendum’s from both political parties and created the 100,000 page monstrosity which became law.  Now there is no factual proof to this belief he righteously stated, yet because he deeply believes this to be true, facts are thrown out the window and it becomes gospel.

The reason I bring this up is because one main tenet which he believes to be true and that he continually brought up was that the law needed passage so to create jobs.  Which of course was one way which the administration sold this travesty to the willing sheeple of the country. When pressed as to how job creation would be accomplished, he could offer no concise explanation.  When I suggested it would constrict employment as employers hesitate to hire new personal because of the high cost associated with mandatory insurance. <crickets>
