It seems that daily there are so many things going on that are need to know for the average citizen.
Here are a few for today.

rossiter-bookPsychiatrist: Obama corrupting America with socialism.

Only a month into Barack Obama’s presidency, an acclaimed psychiatrist is warning that Americans are being slowly corrupted by socialism as Obama’s policies intrude into their economic, social and political lives – a tactic he believes will secure future votes for the Democratic Party.

“We have a desperate population, and it’s feeling even more desperate than usual,” Dr. Lyle Rossiter told WND. “People are really quite frightened. They’re looking for magic, and they think they are going to find it in this man.”

Rossiter is a forensic psychiatrist and author of “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” In his book, he explains how the kind of liberalism being displayed by both Barack Obama and the Democratic Party can only be understood as a psychological disorder. He examines how modern liberal collectivism undermines the legal and moral foundations of ordered liberty.

drivers-licRadio chip coming soon to your driver’s license?

Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.

The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver’s licenses, or “enhanced driver’s licenses.”

“Enhanced driver’s licenses give confidence that the person holding the card is the person who is supposed to be holding the card, and it’s less elaborate than REAL ID,” Napolitano said in a Washington Times report.

carlos_jackal1Carlos the Jackal to Obama: Help me find terrorist pal.

Emboldened by President Barack Obama’s announcement he will close the Guantanamo facility housing suspected terrorists, one of the most notorious leftist terrorists of the 1970s and 1980s has written the president, asking him for help in finding a “former comrade-in-arms” missing for 14 years, and closing his letter with “Allahu akbar! … yours in revolution.”

Ilich Ramirez Sanchez – aka Carlos the Jackal – penned his letter to Obama from the Paris prison where he is serving a life sentence for the murder of two French agents and an informer, and for a series of deadly bomb attacks in Paris and on French trains, the Glasgow Sunday Herald reported today.

“Mister President, Your decision to close secret CIA jails, honors you,” Carlos began before raising the issue of Bruno Breguet, a Swiss national who served as his right-hand man.

Eligibility lawyer argues for president’s deportation.

A Democrat who served as deputy attorney general in Pennsylvania and now is leading a number of lawsuits over the eligibility of President Barack Obama to occupy the Oval Office has told radio talk show host Michael Savage that not only is Obama not eligible to be president, he’s probably an illegal alien and should be deported.

“If it’s true what I am alleging, that he’s an illegal alien … [Obama] should be arrested and deported,” Berg said this week during an interview on the “Savage Nation” program.

Buffett: ‘I Did Some Dumb Things’ in 2008

Warren E. Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway investment fund and holding company and possibly still the world’s richest person, released his annual shareholders letter moments ago, in which he says, “during 2008 I did some dumb things in investments.”

“I made at least one major mistake of commission and several lesser ones that also hurt,” he said. “Furthermore, I made some errors of omission, sucking my thumb when new facts came in that should have caused me to re-examine my thinking and promptly take action.”

That “major mistake,” Buffett writes, was the purchase of millions of shares of ConocoPhillips oil company when oil prices were near their peak.

The CHANGE that crushed the HOPE!

February 27, 2009
Posted by clinicalthinker @ 11:08 AM

Another tidbit sent my way … it is increasingly evident that people who put faith in #44 are beginning to see the real CHANGE their votes garnered.

  • The American people elect a black president with a total of 42 days experience as a U. S. Senator from the most politically corrupt state in America whose governor is ousted from office. The President’s first official act is to close Gitmo and make sure Terrorists civil rights are not violated.
  • The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm a black Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists.
  • The CIA Boss, Leon Penetta with absolutely no experience, has a daughter Linda we find out, that is a true radical anti-American activist who is a supporter of all the Anti-American regimes in the western hemisphere.
  • We got the most corrupt female in America as Secretary of State; bought and paid for.
  • We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary who files his own taxes.
  • A Commerce Secretary nominee who withdrew due to corruption charges.
  • A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under charges.
  • A Labor Sec’y nominee who withdrew under charges of unethical conduct.
  • A Sec’y HHS nominee who withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes.
  • And that’s just the first two weeks . . . but who’s counting.
    America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges ~ Barrack, Nancy, and Harry ~ and they are still trying to define stimulus.
    Stimulus is where the government gives a smidgen of your tax dollars back to you making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated] that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV and go home and watch Telemundo!

    The True Stimulus solution

    February 26, 2009
    Posted by clinicalthinker @ 10:41 AM

    I have to chuckle with some of this stuff being sent my way … actually I have thought of it myself … what part of the (Glenn Beck) icing can we shove off into the Pacific. It is a time apparently for a new start and the one below appears to be a viable solution.

    A TRUE SOLUTION TO STIMULUS!

    Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950′s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let’s just end it on friendly terms.

    We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way. Here is a model separation agreement:

    Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be
    relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes. We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).

    We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies and illegal aliens. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks. We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood.

    You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

    We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U. N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

    We’ll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

    You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

    We’ll practice trickledown economics and you can give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you ANWAR which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

    Sincerely,

    John J. Wall (Law Student and an American)

    P. S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda with you.


    Constitution Amendments to Save the Republic.

    February 25, 2009
    Posted by Economics9698 @ 16:59 PM

    billofrightsThe federal government is well on its way to dictatorship. Controlling 20% of the economy doesn’t seem to satisfy the incompetent idiots in Washington and soon they will be going for more. Socialized medicine will add 16% of the economy into the federal sector. Banks another 10%. Why not go for the auto industry? And of course the bail out are already pushing the federal government’s involvement into the economy up to 22%. And of course this does not count the state and local governments 20% control of their share of the economy. Add it all up and you’re looking at government control over 70% of the economy. And there you have it. The socialist promise and then the fascist boot up the ass.

    The founding fathers knew of monopolies and government control of business and literally revolted. The Boston Tea Party was a tax payer revolt plain and simple. We never had a federal income tax until 1913. Never had a permanent federal bank until 1913. And we prospered as a nation. No Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Section 8 Housing or any federal programs. Welfare was a local concern for the local politicians and religious organizations. Exactly as the founding fathers had envisioned for our country. Now we have dictatorship frantically striving to consolidate power.

    When this government eventually collapses in the future here is the amendments I would like to see.

    28th Amendment. Repeal of the 16th amendment allowing a federal income tax. Prohibiting all forms of taxation except the national sales tax or “Fair Tax.” No tariffs or user fees. Nothing but a national sales tax would be allowed for the federal government.

    29th Amendment. Term limits for all federal workers to twelve years including members of the house, senate and the president to 8 years excluding military personal. Why do we want career federal employees? Let them get a job in the private sector and work for a change. Only military personal would be exempt.

    30th Amendment. Prohibition of the federal government from legislating, taxing or paying for social engineering programs. Prohibit the federal government from making any private citizen payments except in the case of wrongful deprivation of a persons or companies life, liberty or property. Social Security is bust. Medicare and Medicaid will drop this country like a rock into debt. Housing for the poor is a horrible disaster. Time to let the state and local governments do the social engineering. We don’t need no federal education. We don’t need no thought control.

    31st Amendment. Prohibit federal courts from ruling on all social engineering programs set up by the states. Legislating from the bench is very destructive. Time for it to end.

    32nd Amendment. Prohibiting all federal and state government financing and legislating local primary and secondary school. Get out of our schools. We don’t need indoctrination from flunkies who failed calculus. Let the people run the schools at the local level.

    33rd Amendment. Prohibit all unionization of federal, state and local government workers. We know the track record of unions. We see General Motors and Chrysler on the news everyday. Bankruptcy and bail outs are nothing to be proud of or encourage.

    34th Amendment. Prohibit the federal government from regulating any and all drugs. Drug laws should be at the local level. I mean really does anyone in his or her right mind think the “War on Drugs” has accomplished anything except getting people killed and spreading violence? Take a look at Mexico and the killing down there. Soon to be crossing the border into the United States. Prohibition doesn’t work and never has. Grow up.

    35th Amendment. Any citizen convicted of three felonies will immediately receive a vasectomy or tubal ligation. Any citizen with children that required government assistance will immediately receive a vasectomy or tubal ligation. If you can’t feed them then don’t breed them.

    36th Amendment. Voting in federal and state elections is limited to persons receiving a four year college degree at an accredited university, home ownership or business ownership with gross receipts over $250,000 adjusted annually for inflation. US citizenship must be proved to the satisfaction of a court of law. Local elections are open to all persons 18 and older including foreign residences residing in the local communities. Federal and state election must be held on different days than local elections. We have all had enough of the Obama 20 year old idiots out to save the world voting and screwing up our politicians into mindless zombies searching for the next few billion to hand out. If you’re stupid or ignorant you shouldn’t vote. It’s that simple.

    I am sure there are a few more and when the next revolution comes those areas of the country fortunate enough to have decent people like our founding fathers should learn from the demise of our government and adopt these principles. Large federal governments lead to dictatorship and catastrophe. The only legitimate function of the federal government is to have a first class military and settle disputes between states. All the social engineering needs to be done at the state or local level. As it was in the past.


    THE STOCK MARKET HAS CRASHED!

    February 23, 2009
    Posted by clinicalthinker @ 11:35 AM

    I have resigned myself to what is ‘IS‘.
    Trying to figure out who is doing what and why or who isn’t doing what they are more than handsomely paid to do and why is simply much to energy consuming.

    I was watching a political discussion yesterday when the discussion turned to the stock market. The average gist of it was … in time it will rally. Investors will begin to have confidence and the market will stabilize and in about 5 years will recover.

    With that … the total idiocy of the whole conversation struck and I was laughing hysterically.
    What can these people be thinking … I know they are not!

    This has become the favorite quote of my cousin and I.

    Forget the banks, forget the stock market!
    Goods in hand are a better investment now days … like maybe a bag of wheat?
    If there is a silver lining in any of this those in charge of this collapse will be waiting in some bread line for a loaf. Why? Because they are to busy screwing us all they never learned to bake bread themselves.

    Wait! Exactly what did they EVER learn, where and why? We all know the answer to that don’t we? NOTHING except screwing us all or one another.

    It’s time to face reality.
    THE STOCK MARKET HAS CRASHED!
    It has just not hit bottom yet.
    Why? Because those who manipulate it ARE NO LONGER IN CONTROL of it. They think they are but take a look … it continues to slide. Anyone adding one more cent to this institute is ‘totally daffed’ or a masochist. Why hasn’t it yet hit bottom? Because those in charge have not yet raped the 401K and IRA investments for all they can YET.

    Everyone keeps saying the stock market can not crash like ’29.
    Have you heard and know the meaning of DENIAL?
    Who today is promoting a rise like the proverbial phoenix?
    Those who have MOST TO LOSE when it totally bottoms.

    There are great buys out there right?
    Who do you trust?
    How do we any longer know HOW MANY Madoffs there are still suckering us all in?
    We don’t … that’s what happens with an industry that gets greedy and does not police itself.
    EVERYONE FAILS!

    Look around you folks … we live in a paper society.
    There is NOTHING but YOUR LABOR AND SKILL that is worth anything to you or the government.
    This government has mortgaged that to the hilt for years to come.
    Brace yourselves because its YOUR LABOR AND SKILL that will be taxed in one way or another to pay for this folly.
    What you can produce with that labor and skill is the ONLY THING that will save you from the worst that is headed our direction.

    If you are a good boy/girl scout … BE PREPARED!
