Obama's America

We are surrounded with vivid examples of the Obama's vision of America. Together with his minions in the Democrat party, his 32 special czars and the Mainstream Media, Obama is doing everything in his power to transform America into a big government, socialist (possibly even communist) nation. Much of what they laughingly call "hope and change" is found in obscure details and massive bills that even the polpigs are unable to read and understand. However, there is one image that we believe clearly shows the direction Obama is heading.

For those who have been hiding from reality, that is the national flag of Communist China flying alongside Old Glory.

Let us never forget the sacrifices of millions who have fought against the evils of communism. Our troops fought communist Chinese troops in Korea. Our Viet Nam vets fought against an enemy funded and fully supported by the communist Chinese.

Let us never forget under who's reign a communist flag flew side by side with the American flag in the capitol city of the United States of America.

Wake up America! We elected this President and Congress, we can remove them starting with the 2010 elections. It is time to pick a side and fight folks.

Even Garage Sales Aren't Safe from Big Brother

Just about the time a guy starts to think there isn't much more the massive and ever growing federal government can reach out and control, something new pops up. This time is new, strict guidelines being imposed upon thrift stores, product resellers and, of all things, the neighborhood garage sale. And to show that they mean business, the DC bureaucrats are wielding the threat of fines up to $15 MILLION. [Read more]

Of course, the government tells us that their intentions are good and the little guy has nothing to worry about but the new guidelines do not make a distinction between national resellers and home garage sales.

If this is what they meant by "change and hope", they can shove it.

Is Rep. Joe Wilson Correct?

During President Barack Hussein Obama's speech to Congress September 9, 2009, he made the claim that the healthcare bill would not extend coverage to illegal aliens. Reacting emotionally, Representative Joe Wilson, R-SC, called the President a liar. Maybe the moment wasn't proper but Rep. Wilson only said what is on the minds of millions of citizens.

While Democrats, libs and other polpigs decry Rep. Wilson's actions, they are not addressing whether or not Rep. Wilson was correct in his accusation. According to CNN, there is a some degree of truth to the claim that illegal aliens will be covered.

While the report found that federal subsidies to obtain health coverage would be restricted to U.S. citizens and legal residents, it also noted that the bill does not specify a citizenship verification system, something that critics say creates a loophole for undocumented immigrants to receive subsidies anyway. [Full Story]

Given that both the Senate and House versions of a healthcare bill run to more than a 1000 pages each, and that it is written in the particular style used by lawyers and politicians to obfuscate, it is doubtful that most of the members of Congress or the mainstream media have even read either bill in their entirety. Perhaps that is why there does not seem to be a rush to defend Obama's comments. Perhaps the lack of defense is because nowhere in either bill is there a specific clause banning illegal aliens from receiving taxpayer funded healthcare and in D.C., what isn't said is just as important as what is said.

Instead of defending Obama, the talking heads and polpigs chose to attack Rep. Wilson for calling Obama a "liar". These are the same voices that had nothing to say when Speaker Pelosi called American citizens engaged in lawful and peaceful protest, "nazis".

Could Joe Wilson have chosen a better time and place for his comment? Sure, but for now there is no irrefutable proof that he was wrong.
