It Was Abound to Happen

Abound Solar Manufacturing, a now bankrupt green energy company, has created problems for the environment it was supposed to help. Since closing its doors, it has polluted the environment with carcinogenic waste, and will cost several million dollars to clean up, at the taxpayer's expense, naturally. 

President Obama, with his incredible business acumen, gave the company $70 million of our money to fund this sinking ship. In fact, in a July 2010 announcement, he spoke about the company in addition to a $2 billion "investment" in other green energy debacles. (He didn't use the word "debacle" at the time, nor will he use it now, I suspect.) To quote our Community Organizer in Chief in speaking about green energy companies:

"The second company is Abound Solar Manufacturing, which will manufacture advanced solar panels at two new plants, creating more than two thousand construction jobs and fifteen hundred permanent jobs," Obama said. "A Colorado plant is already under way, and an Indiana plant will be built in what’s now an empty Chrysler factory. When fully operational, these plants will produce millions of state-of-the-art solar panels each year."

Like Solyndra, a company that received $535 million in guaranteed federal loans and went bust when it produced solar panels that cost more than for what they sold, (another genius move Obama style), incompetence was abound with Abound. This company got only a mere $400 million in guaranteed federal loans. 

Solyndra produced about 12.5 million pounds of toxic, carcinogenic waste in the form of cadmium-contaminated water. Abound Manufacturing didn't do much better with their toxic waste and tons of broken glass and other less deadly waste that they left behind when they closed up shop. It's estimated that it will cost about $3.7 million just to clean it up.

So how green are these green projects? Not so green after all. When you factor in the carbon footprint left behind just to haul away the toxic crap these plants produce, you have to factor in at least a 5% pollution factor. Maybe the answer is to haul away all the crap with Chevy Volts, but then you'd have to charge them up with coal-generated electricity.

Is it possible that community organizers aren't well-trained in the engineering of green energy? Is it also possible that some community organizers are actually less concerned with the energy implications on the environment than they are with who controls the energy and thus, the people in the environment?

Affordable Care is an Act

It continues to amaze me that liberals think that accusing conservatives of not wanting the Affordable Care Act is something we deny. We don't want it, never did, and it didn't get a single Republican vote. Yet Harry Reid (pronounced "Weed") pushed it through the Senate using a sneaky tactic that only a guy like Harry would use.

If you saw the testimony of Kathleen Sebelius today at the House Energy and Commerce Committee, you could have poked your eyes out with hot steel rods and still could tell who was doing the questioning. Liberals not only asked powderpuff questions, they testified for the validity of Obamacare, and supported Sebelius' incompetence. The only good thing about the hearing was that they actually stuck to the time limit of 4 minutes. That was the only good part.

If you watched carefully, you might have noticed how Sebelius used animated hand gestures (a la Pelosi) when Democrats questioned her--if you can call what they did 'questioning,'--but when the GOP did the questioning, her hands shook or moved nervously by her desktop. 

Rumor has it that Sebelius uses dial-up web surfing at home, and that rumor was started by me, but really, do we honestly believe that she is competent and Obamacare is really both affordable and cares? One thing for certain is that it is an "act."

Michelle's Buddy and Obamacare

Will the Affordable Care Act website ever work? Will the Obama administration decide that the site should go analog? Will they open up the phone lines to accomodate more than a dozen callers at a time to help assuage the enormous traffic volume that was unexpected from a population of 300 million Americans who are being forced to get Obamacare and yet still surprised the Obama administration by the volume of calls? And finally, did I previously write a run-on sentence?

It's comforting to know that Obama is now getting the brightest and best to fix the website problems caused by the dullest and worst he originally hired to do the job. I questioned why  he selected the people he chose to do the job, but then I learned that Michelle had gone to Princeton University with Toni Townes-Whitley, the woman who heads CGI Federal, the company hired to do the project for $678 million. Both Michelle and Toni are members of the Association of black Princeton Alumni. They are more than casual acquaintances, and Toni even made contributions to Barack's campaign fund. Nobody can ever accuse the Obama's of not taking care of their friends. But conflict of interst? You make the call.

The Obamination of Care

Kathleen Sebelius is probably as arrogant as President Obama. To say that she doesn't work for us is as thoughtful as the amount of preparation she oversaw in making for the Obamacare website. To believe that Obama didn't know about the problems that exist with the site is naive.

So we tax payers have already shelled out over $600 million and stand to spend about $1 billion by the time the site is up and ready. We bought a website that doesn't work, has poor security code, and the CEO of the lead company that got the contract is headed by a classmate and friend of Michelle Obama. Coincidence? Perhaps, but I believe there is more here than we will ever know--especially from Jay Carney and the rest of the Obama circus--but one thing for certain is that the mainstream media will not press the matter, no pun intended.

From the start, I believed the GOP should have left the debt ceiling alone and allowed Obamacare to play out. But even though they didn't, the public seems to have the attention span of a goldfish and are now focused on Obamacare. This is a good thing; a very good thing.

Obamacare and the World Wide Wonderful Web

Flash: President Obama plans to address the nation about the "glitch" on the Affordable Care" website. (Fun Fact: the Affordable Care Act is not affordable for the average health care consumer.) This is not a glitch it is a FUBAR.

The fact that Obama had a four years to get this site up and running, a site that was developed by a Canadian company, a company that was fired for a previous screw-up, should tell you something about the thinking that didn't go into Obamacare. Craigslist or even DealDash.com works better than the Obamacare site, and the government spent over $400 million on the deal. But so what--it's our tax money, not Obama's.Okay, so maybe Obama did not have a full four years to get things in order, but he sure had a lot more time than Craigslist had when they went into business.

We have heard many promises made by Pres. Obama, and we have heard many lies. If Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act, as it is so laughingly referred to, was managed by a private institution all heads would roll. Katherine Sibelius would have been fired on the spot after spending their investors money and failing to produce results. But with government our money is like a drug; they cannot get enough of the fix to satisfy themselves.

I believe that had the GOP not shut down the government and challenged Obamacare, and allowed it to fail, they would be in a stronger position for the midterm elections and for 2016. Ted Cruz may have meant well when he filibustered, or perhaps it was meant as a self – serving ploy, but had he done nothing the Democrats would have looked like fools today. In the long run Cruz may have done something good for the party, but in the liberal mainstream news media he and the party, particularly the tea party, has been crucified. It's a shame that it turned out this way but hopefully the misery that the public will feel with Obamacare will turn opinion around.

Obamalinsky

Barack Hussein Obama is clearly not the best president we’ve ever had; so far he’s our worst. But when all is said and done, you have to give him credit for his ability to implement Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals.

I like to think that Obama relies most heavily upon Rule Number Five. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” In spite of the fact that he said he will bring the country together, he has cleaved us so much that it would make Dolly Parton envious. You can’t defend against ridicule; it isn’t usually rational. It creates anger, and it’s damn mean. You can hear in his talking points how crazy the tea party is, for example, or how the GOP is a bunch of racists who want nothing more than to see Obama fail. There’s probably nothing worse than a person who is not a racist to be called a racist.

The word most favored by liberals seems to be the word “racist.” Idiots like Chris Matthews use it almost as much as Obama uses the word “uh.” But you have to wonder how many non-– whites Matthews associates with – – my guess is that he associates with his many non—whites as attended his son’s wedding. None.

The problem as I see it is that conservatives need to be more aggressive when responding to liberal lies. Perhaps we need to use Alinsky’s Rules to wage mental war. Maybe we need to use Rule 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” That is, isolate the target from sympathy. Go after specific people like Obama, Biden, and Hillary, and not the Democrats as a whole. Alinsky acknowledges that this is cruel but effective. He believes that direct personalized criticism and ridicule works.


I know that I called Chris Matthews and idiot, but I should warn you that ad hominem attacks tend to be the weakest. Of course, they are the easiest to use by liberals because there are no facts to support their wild claims. If liberals actually used facts they would be Republicans.

So if you don't mind a president whose greatest skill is that of a community organizer and his greatest love seems to be for socialism and radical change within the government, you probably don't mind with happening with Obamacare, nor the fact that our president has been meeting with Muslim Brotherhood members in the People's House. I know Chris Matthews doesn't mind – – he still gets a thrill up his leg. But I suspect that the thrill is in going as far up as it used to.

Islam: Religion of Peace?

Sir Useful Idiot Cameron
President Obama believes that he can negotiate with terrorists. Maybe that's why he has terrorists meeting with him in the White House. And if you don't think the Muslim Brotherhood are terrorists, then you might believe Anthony Weiner is a Catholic priest, and you might be a liberal. 

As far as Muslims were concerned, treaties were to be concluded no more than 10 years and only for the purpose of allowing weakened Muslim forces to gain strength. There are over 100 versus in the Koran that extort Muslims to make war against non-Muslims." O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is in Hell, and evil refuge indeed. (Quran 9:73).

Abu Anus al Libi Does the Big Apple

Abu Anas al Libi--say that three times fast and pull the pin on a suicide vest. But seriously, do Muslim leaders ever wear a suicide vest themselves? Hardly. To wear a suicide vest would mean dressing to the 72's; (that's the virgin allotment jihadists get for blowing themselves to bits). Islamic leaders don't want to blow themselves up--they know where they're going--they want other people to join that jihadist group they call the Smithereens.

Why the Democrats are Unfair and Basically Suck

Mt. Rushmore: with government closed, here's a view from Canada
So maybe we will get the government working again. Veterans will not be hassled when trying to visit veteran memorials they earned the right to see. Americans traveling to the Grand Canyon will be allowed to actually look at the mountains. Old Faithful will once again be faithful for visitors. People will not be forced to wear blindfolds when looking at Mount Rushmore--an obvious Obama plot due to the RUSH-part of Rushmore--he wants Rush-less. All the GOP seems to be asking for is that all congressmen/women both in the House and Senate, pay for Obamacare without the 73% cost defray.

As it turns out, the Democrats do not want to pay the full cost themselves, and now they even want labor unions to be exempt as well. This sucks. It is unfair, unjust, and un-American. Labor unions and other Obama supporters get a break. Individual citizens get screwed.

Nancy Pelosi and illegal aliens get to visit the War memorials while veterans who fought in those wars are kept out. Thankfully, we didn't stand for it without a fight. Now Obama and friends (or is it "fiends"?) think they should be exempt from Obamacare. How disgustingly elitist can they be?

Democrats really do suck--I don't usually rant like this, but I believe they earned it, unlike the dweebs at the Occupy Movements.

God: "Sorry, Heaven's Closed"

President Obama spoke today and we listened. He said pretty much the same thing he said yesterday; that he would be open to talk to the GOP but you may have noticed the absence of the word "negotiate." Of course, I'm referring to the debt ceiling and his claim that the Republican party want to allow the country to go bust. We would be a "deadbeat" country and unable to pay our debts. The GOP are just a bunch of extortionists because 

Obama and the Wussification of Sports Team Names

We have become a nation of sensitive whiners and hyper-sensitive complainers. Now the president is getting involved with this nonsense. The Washington Redskins are being pressured to change their name. Redskin is apparently unacceptable to people of the Native American persuasion. In fact, we used to call this group of people "Indians," because Christopher Columbus got lost and thought he was in India. Believe me, I've been to India--there's no comparison. But now political correctness says that it is offensive to refer to a group of native Americans as redskins because, well, it's just offensive and that's that.

Obamacare, the Shutdown, and Libi

Obamacare Doesn't
The glitch is due to the enormous amount of traffic the Obamacare website is getting from all corners of the USA. Not, I repeat, not due to the poor website design that needed more work. So we can say that the Obamacare website has received as much forethought as Obamacare itself had received.

The site is not user friendly says Russell Reeder, COO of Media Temple, a computer consulting firm, to Neil Cavuto on Fox News. But Obama and his lackeys blame it on high volume. But even if that is true, which is as likely to be as the existence of unicorns in my cornflakes, it shows the lack of preparation and planning of the Obama abomination. SNL used the analogy: "It's like 1-800 FLOWERS being surprised on Valentine's Day."

Friday Flushings

Obamacare Day Four
Harry Reid refuses to negotiate with the GOP regarding Obamacare regardless of the government shut down. The mainstream media is blaming the GOP for all the angst this is causing. Now how predictable is that? A White House staffer, who currently remains anonymous, has basically claimed that the Democrats are "winning," and they will get what they want regardless if the debt ceiling is reached. 

The effect of the government shut down is being felt even across the Atlantic into France where the Normandy Memorial is closed to visitors. You can blame both sides of the aisle for the shut down if you'd like, and you wouldn't be off base, but the real blame lies with Obama's administration. It is very clear that open air memorials, scenery that is open to the public at all times and does not require government staffing, should not be closed to the public. 

When war veterans who planned to visit their WWII Memorial in Washington D.C., most for the first time in their 90 years of life, are prohibited from doing so by this administration, there is something horribly wrong. It's a political statement. It's all for the purpose of making the shut down hurt the public as much as possible, so Harry Reid and the rest of Obama's administration, can get their way, and with the help of the media, make it look like the entire debacle is the fault of the GOP. 

Obama said that he has "bent over backwards to work with the Republican party." He says one thing but does the opposite. The left believes what he says because, unlike Ronald Reagan, they don't verify.

Who will win? Certainly not the public. Definitely not our veterans.

D.C. Car Chase
A mentally ill, 34 year old dental hygienist, Miriam Carey, driving an Infinite sedan, tried to breach a White House checkpoint yesterday. This led to a high speed car chase that ended in Carey being shot and killed by an officer. There was an 18 month old child in the car, her baby, who was unhurt now, but will grow up without her mother.

It is believed that the cause of her mental illness is due to post-partum depression, which can cause psychotic-like effects, and it doesn't appear as if Carey was receiving any treatment for her mental status.

Cars that intentionally try to run over people don't kill people, the driver does. Guns that shoot bullets at people don't kill people, the shooter does. The killer is not the object that kills, it's the agent of the object.

This makes the case for our need of better mental healthcare and judging from what we're hearing about Obamacare, this isn't in the cards.

DC Shooting: Latest

Just about an hour ago, a woman, with a young child aboard her car, apparently tried to drive through a barrier to the White House gate, and perhaps attempt an attack on the President. President Obama was actually in the White House when the incident occurred. 

Due to sequestration, the Federal police only had 2 bullets apiece in their handguns. Due to the government shut down, all non-essential government personnel were given a furlough, so Joe Biden was nowhere to be found. In spite of this "catastrophic situation," (to quote Nancy Pelosi), the woman was stopped in her nefarious attempt, and is likely in custody. However, there is another rumor that she was killed by police.

An Administration of Emotion: Shutting Down the WWII Memorial

The World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. is closed due to the government shut down. It's usually open 24/7 every day of the year even when it isn't staffed. So what can possibly be the reason why a bunch of Ninety-Somethings can't get to see their war memorial and perhaps read the names of the fallen who served in Okinawa and the other battles in which they died? A place where they can go, many for the first and last time they will ever get the chance, to feel as if the country gives a damn about them.
