Harry Reid, Gardener Extraordinaire

Springtime is upon us! It’s almost time to get out there in the yard and start to cultivate and grow stuff. WooHoo! I love this time of year. I love the smell of cut grass and damp dirt.One thing I’ve always found a little funny is the types of food plants like. Who would have thought that if you put crap on plants it grows better. Who thought of that?! That first time was a little risky if you ask me.

Unfortunately, the way you get a good crop from plants is the exact opposite way that you get a good crop of people. We’ve all heard the proverb, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.”
If people are surrounded crap they stink. And all us normal people don’t want to be around them. And when they get all their ideas from crap, their ideas are crap. And when there ideas are crap, we normal people want nothing to do with them.

Harry Reid, you and your ilk are CRAP!

You have surrounded yourself by evil people. You believe their crap and now want to make us eat their crap. The bad news for you, Harry, is that we’re people, not plants. But I do concede that you would be one hell of a gardener, what with your talent for finding the rottenest, stinkiest crap in the world. Too bad you picked politician/evil bastard as your career choice.

I really try to reserve judgment on people most of the time, especially if we disagree politically but have similar religious beliefs. That’s a sensitive area. But this week after reading comments -by comments, I really mean self-proclaimed delusions- by Harry about the passage of the Heath care abomination. I had to wonder how two people who agree on the majority of religious issues can be so at odds with governmental issues. The conclusion I came to is that… I have no idea. I cannot understand how Harry can reconcile his morality with the immorality of this legislation, not to mention the horrific corruption of the process.

The bottom line is that I can no longer give Harry a ‘pass’ that we just disagree on some issues. I think Harry is a bad dude. Look who he is surrounded by. Socialists. Liars. Criminals! They would be in jail if they had to abide by the laws they set. Look at the fruits of his works. Look at the means to his ends. Crap. Crap. And crap.

Harry, you are an evil bastard. I’ll let Ted Kennedy know to save you a seat in case he hasn’t already.

Moral Hazzards

Whose side are you one? Founding Fathers or Marx/Stalin/Hitler/etc?

I’m so sick of hearing all about how evil capitalism is! How many wars has capitalism started? How many people does capitalism oppress? How about governments? Hmmm…?

Most of the problems we are facing today have less to do with capitalism and more to do with government meddling and manipulation. But the government, true to form, will always place the blame elsewhere.

Capitalism (true capitalism, not this govt-regulated-to-death capitalism) is the most just and fair system this world has ever seen. A capitalist system benefits the productive and industrious. A non-capitalist system coddles the useless and lazy. The argument against capitalism is always that self-interest is bad. Opponents of capitalism are wrong in their reasoning. A critical factor is left out of their equation: self interest, for most people, includes morals (this is why morals/religion in a free/capitalist society is critical).

Here’s something to think about:

There are those who say that we need government involvement to ensure fairness and morality. Saying that politicians will prevent corruption and increase competition is the biggest paradox I’ve ever heard. The trap is that men make mistakes. Men in government are not immune to corruption and mistakes. HA! I would even say there’s a 100% probability of politicians making worse and dire mistakes than a businessman whose livelihood depends on being fair and competitive.

Even if there is immorality and corruption in business, the beauty of true capitalism is that those businesses will fail once their deeds are exposed. If government controls industry, you can no longer choose to not participate. They cannot go “bankrupt” or “out of business.” They don’t have to be competitive or make a profit. You can’t sue them. They can’t go to jail.

Seriously, think about the consequences. The government always screws things up worse than they say they will.

Ever Seen A Crack Addict?

I am not naive.

I have never smoked. I have never done drugs. I have never had a drink of alcohol. I have never been in a brawl. I was pretty much a good kid growing up. I went to church every Sunday. Now, reading this, you would probably assume I was sheltered and inexperienced, right?

Corruption

I’m tired of all the corruption I see in politics and business.

Chicago-style (and now Washington-style) politics

Chicago-style (and now Washington-style) politics

Imagine you had committed a crime and were going to go to jail for breaking the law. Now imagine that you had a friend that could keep you out of jail because of his connections. Would you allow your crime to be covered up?

Let’s say you do. Good for you. You outsmarted the system. This kind of thing happens every day. What’s it gonna hurt if you participate a little teeny tiny bit. Not gonna hurt anyone, right?

Aside from the fact you’re trying to defeat the Law of Justice, which is impossible due to its eternal nature, you are now in someone’s debt without even knowing what the price is.

A recent example is our own wonderful-human-being David Letterman. To be clear, he didn’t (as far as we know) break the law, just the rules. His acts and their concealment left him susceptible to extortion.

Extortion leads to corruption.

We hear of people in the media, politics and Hollywood every day who are “outed” because they fell out of favor. If you think that the ones we hear about are representative of the actual amount of criminal/dishonest behavior, you’re delusional. An understanding of statistics tells us that. When you see one cockroach there’s 100 more you don’t see.

And with all the “favors” and “compromises” that happen in our society, particularly in our political circles, I imagine that the corruptions is rampant and disgusting. How do these people sleep at night unless they’re all atheists?

Another example of extortion:

Welfare/Bailouts.

Entitlement issues and lack of discipline leave us open to extortion from our corrupt government who uses our weaknesses to amass power and control of us. If we stop playing the game, they will cut us off. Inability to fail is unhealthy to a free society.

Absence of morality is the root problem in our society and only its elimination will put us back on track. Until we fix that, it doesn’t matter what ‘solutions we present. They won’t fix the problem. This is why we cannot continue doing the same things over and over, electing the same types of people over and over. They are corrupt and devoid of ethics.

Pick a side.

The Oath

It’s a wonder we even take seriously anything that comes out of our elected officials’ mouths with all the lies and deceit that permeate their speech. Regardless, I wanted to make aware of certain oaths that are taken – oaths that used to mean something:

Presidential Oath of Office:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

If we had anyone with some guts in our government, an irrefutable case could be made that our Constitution is being trampled and circumvented. Obama has stated he believes the Constitution is flawed because it is a document of ‘negative liberties’. He has stated and continues to believe as proved by his actions that we should be governed by a system of ‘positive liberties’. Positive liberties means the government does things for you. To accomplish this, we must relinquish freedom. To give something to one necessitates the taking from another. How is this freedom or liberty? It is not. It is servitude.

And “redistributive change”? That’s not even code for socialism. That IS socialism!

How about this oath taken by the armed forces of the US:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same:…”

We’ve been heading down the road of socialism for the last 100 years. The enemy is within the gates. Their means are many but their motivation united: control and power.

Pick a side.

Scumbags of the day

John Edwards cheated on his dying wife. Now (act surprised) he’s been caught again! C’mon, does anyone really believe it was a one-time thing? Yeah, right! When you see one cockroach, there’s 100 more you don’t see. Best of all, his wife is threatening to spill the beans on all the shady political secrets he has. Awesome. Looking forward to it…

David Letterman is an ass. He looks down his nose at all of us and criticizes everyone with traditional values from his glorified soap box. We all know he is a tyrant to work for. We all knew he was a dirty old man perv. But I never (yeah, right) would have guessed that he was also a cheater and a hypocrite.

Mark Ensign, disgraced Republican Senator from Nevada (I’d still take this scumbag over Reid) was caught laundering your tax dollars. It wasn’t enough just to get caught cheating on his wife. He had to give sweet deals to his mistress and her husband. Surprise! A crooked politician. They are almost all crooked and therefore almost all of them are vulnerable to being extorted and controlled. This is why we are losing control of our country.

Mark Sanford, Republican governor who decided it was no big deal to just leave the country and visit his mistress in Argentina. I’m sure we can all relate, right? Well, this once hope-of-the-party loser nut job has apparently decided that he doesn’t have to keep up the descent guy anymore. He’s full-on refusing to face the music as more and more allegations of impropriety are raised.

Whoopi Goldberg, I don’t know what “rape-rape” is, but you are a evil bastard for even suggesting that Polanski didn’t do anything wrong. Where do you people come from? Is this a giant ‘Punked’ or something? Wow. I just don’t know what else to say about this….

Robert Gibbs, Obama’s chief liar… uh, I mean, Press Secretary. I can hardly stand to look at this guy. He’s such a bad liar. You’d think they’d at least pick someone who could lie with a straight face.

Jimmy Carter, once again you make one of my lists. You deny what you said a few weeks ago when you called me and everyone else who opposes Obama for any legitimate reasons a racist. NEWSFLASH: we have video cameras and no matter what you say, it doesn’t make it so. PS – you could probably get away with playing the crazy-old-man card. Serenity Now!

Pyromaniacs

I didn't do it

Didn't do that either

YEAH RIGHT!!

Here’s a little story:

Let’s just say that there’s been a bunch of fires. Every time there’s a fire there are people at the scene accusing people of setting the fires. They always manage to implicate someone for the fire. People go to jail because we don’t put up with people burning down our buildings. But as we investigate, we learn that these same accusers are always at the scene right before the fires. And here’s the twist, the accusers are the fire inspectors!

This example, ladies and gentleman, is spot-on for what is going on in our government right now, and particularly in the financial oversight committees. Those in charge (Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Chuck Rangel, and fellow evil bastards) are nothing more than pyromaniacs. They are con artists of the first degree.

How can we ever stop the burning if those setting the fires are the ones doing the investigating and prosecuting?!
