Better Luck With False Hope

The “head fake” that the sensible knew was coming may be arriving a bit earlier than expected. With all of the socialist stumbles of the communist coterie known as the Obama administration to this early point in the game, the inevitable “look towards 2010” reveals to the progressive prognosticators a need for a fallacious “move towards the middle”. This will be accompanied by a misleading “tax cut” of an insignificant amount that will garner the typical heavy breathing, perspiration and swooning that every liberal misdirection receives from the complicit “impartial” media.. With as much damage as they have done, it would seem appropriate that this Democratic diversion would need to be done at such an early moment in Obama’s Totalitarian tenure..

The generosity of the Obama caliphate is staggering. Within a “budget” that will approach four trillion dollars when all is said and done, seventeen billion has been placed on the chopping block.. That amounts to about one half of one percent. Don’t spend it all in one place.. Obama marionette Peter Orszag said, “Seventeen billion a year is not chump change by anyone’s accounting..” The habitual “fabrication” that is part of the liberal genus cannot be contained or corralled..

First of all, it is not “a year” as incorrectly stated but just for fun, lets take the green eye shade guru’s egregious exaggeration at face value. If my mathematics don’t fail me, (and they might..) by my calculations this so called “savings” will take nearly 236 years to simply “break even” and that would be with the assumption that any liberal government or congress wouldn’t spend another nickel.. Talk about “pushing the budgetary cuts envelope”.. Orszag may not consider this “chump change” but it is nothing more than “change” from “chumps”. Or if we accept passively this, it would be “change” for “chumps”. More “change” Obama style..

The numbers game continues on as they proudly boast that they are going to “trim or eliminate” 121 programs in order to achieve this mammoth one half of one percent. Within the liberal lexicon, “trim or eliminate” translates to “rename and redirect” and nothing more. Here are a few more “numbers” for your consideration: one half or 50% of these “renamed and redirected savings” are from the defense budget. These will definitely be “redirected” under the Obama “Maximum Vulnerability” plan.. Moderate Bush, with a less “imaginary” budget and having to fight a liberal “acrimonious” House and Senate, wanted 151 programs addressed for a “savings” of 18 billion. This was when the idea of the “deficit” sent the liberals into a public diarrhea panic, but today the “deficit” is as frightening to them as their imaginary “population explosion” or their “ice age” phantasms of the past.. The impending Obama “deficit” doesn’t frighten them and the “inflation”, that will make the corn pone communist Carter look like a piker, doesn’t register with them either. It’s all about getting past 2010 and “keeping control”..

In, “Obama trims budget, but less than Bush” we hear from a “senior administration official whom the White House allowed to brief reporters early on the condition of anonymity..”, (WHAT!! If the White House APPROVED it, why the need for “anonymity??) that “we are trying to do the right thing here and I think the context has significantly changed..” The “context has significantly changed”? Let’s see, there is STILL a liberal House and Senate as there has been for years, there is a liberal President as opposed to a moderate President. What has significantly changed, other than the Obama deficit and the Obama inflation soon to be arriving..

Maybe it stems from a “perceived change in attitude in Congress” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin. The “change in attitude” brought about by the seating of a liberal Democrat in the Oval Office as opposed to the moderate Republican that he replaced. Acrimony has transformed to harmony..

Just one example of the “six of one, half a dozen of another” liberal mentality, this “budget” seeks to “eliminate” the “ineffective” State Criminal Alien Assistance Program that helps the states defray their costs of incarcerating the overwhelming illegal alien criminal population. However, “Homeland Security is poised to see a substantial increase to shore up border security and to target employers who hire illegal aliens..” Maybe if “border security” had been a “concern” a little earlier.. It seems that if you manage to evade the “border security”, you are free to do as you wish. Since the government subsidizes Amtrak, send the border burglars back in hermetically sealed trains and let them out near Guatemala..

Within this 1,500-page document are a few looks into the liberal methodology. Obama grudgingly agreed to let 12.2 million dollars continue towards the “D.C. Opportunity Scholarships Program”. This is a fancy name for a “vouchers” program in Washington D.C. 7,500 students benefit from this program and Obama has “generously” decided to allow those in the program to graduate. He and the Democrats, will end the program as part of the “Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009” (The Progressive Porkbarrel Polemic of 2009..) Wouldn’t it be “transparent” to know what these 7,500 students accomplished versus the rest of the NEA “educated” students in the nation’s capitol? This type of “information” only strengthens the resolve behind vouchers and weakens the position of another Democratic special interest group in need of their payoff and we can’t have that..

Obama wants to scrap the “Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation”. Of course, the name of “Christopher Columbus” has to raise the hackles of the heretics of the left alone but here we have a program that sponsors a “science competition” for bright AMERICAN students. It would appear that Obama’s “promises” to boost science in the schools during his insipid campaign were as hollow as all of the other helium filled fabrications he floated while begging for more political power..

However, keep in mind that the Obama administration and Secretary of Statists Rodham on March 9, 2009 announced that the American taxpayer would be providing a “million dollar scholarship program for Palestinian students”. PALESTINIAN students.. That’s right, ten scholarships and 25 “opportunity grants” for Palestinian students.. I wondered where this money would come from when it was announced and now we know not only who will be paying for it, we know who will benefit from it and who will be penalized as well.. This “program” is called the “Middle Eastern Partnership Initiative”. The liberals have been in “partnership” with the Middle Easterners with the mutual goal of the destruction of America, so this is just another logical extension of the “partnership”..

Obama wants to “eliminate” a program called “Even Start” which takes 66 million dollars for “promoting literacy for young children and their parents”.. (PARENTS!!) This coming from someone who “promised” to make early childhood education a “priority”.. With such a socialist sound name as “Even Start”, I am guessing that the leftists are more concerned with an “Even Outcome”. This will be a prime example of the “appear centrist, rename and redirect” progressive program. Think 2010..

Even a Department of Education “attache” making $632,000 a year while suffering in PARIS FRANCE is scheduled for the Obama “Marie Antoinette” guillotine.. That money will undoubtedly be redirected to another domestic NEA goon, however the payoff will need to be amped up just a skosh..

In the end, all of this blather about “discretionary spending” and “cuts” will turn out to be “vital government services” once another “imaginary diversionary epidemic” or three is inflated by the “impartial” media and this topic is systematically bumped from the headlines and from the ADD driven public.. This is the equivalent of stooping to pick up a penny while packs of hundred-dollar bills fly over your head. Douglas Holtz-Eakin said “the Obama administration will have better luck in cutting, but it’s almost certainly a false hope..”

There you have the template for the Obama administration, “better luck with false hope”..

    They NEVER are.

    Larry, your incisive analysis certainly shows that Obama subscribes to the “keep ’em ignorant” policy. His minuscule cuts seem all to be aimed at those who were looking to get out of the NEA-tended swampland that is our public “education” system. Like all good socialists, he realizes that those whom you hope to enslave you must keep ignorant.

    I have often wondered why parents in the inner cities strive so to get their children into magnet schools and cry out for vouchers to move their children to better schools and then turn around and vote for the very people who peddle hope while ensuring hopelessness for their offsrping. Voters! Realize that the snail darter is still much more important than the education of your children.

  3. I need some help with these budget numbers if anyone has the dope (no pun purposely intended:)

    “Within a “budget” that will approach four trillion dollars when all is said and done, ”

    I see all kinds of things like this but it always seems to me they need to include some past budgets / and when will this occur? I need the past budget number to get some ‘feel’ for how large this is.

    thanks

  4. Lonely Man

    Great article Larry…..

    The education system in this country is seriously flawed, thanks to the likes of the NEA.

    Our children are being force fed lies and the government allows it to go on in the name of appeasment. It’s disgraceful.

    Parents exist to prepare the next generation to carry on. It’s about time people took the education of their children seriously. It is the only legacy you leave that matters.

    The fact that the government sits idley by and allows this to go on is dis-heartening.

    Power to homeschoolers.

  5. “It would appear that Obama’s “promises” to boost science in the schools during his insipid campaign were as hollow as all of the other helium filled fabrications he floated while begging for more political power..”

    You would have to actually know what science IS before you could boost it. The only “science” being taught in public schools is of the Al Gore variety, and Obama and his minions subscribe to that same pseudointellectual bullshit of global warming.

    danno,

    2008 FINAL budget: 2.9 trillion (up 4% from 2007 after Democratic House and Senate went at it.)

    2009 estimated budget: 3.4 trillion (up 17.2% from 2008, 11,300 for every man, woman and child, legal or illegal in America..)

    That’s BEFORE the “Stimulingus”package and the TARP, for atotal of 4.845 trillion for grand total of a 68% increase..

    Thanks to Stitch for the help with the advanced algebra..

    Starts in October.

    people really don’t care.” ~Chuck Schumer

    Oh really, Chuck?? Apparently there were enough people in Washington, DC to dispute that little nugget of yours, when it came to the Voucher program….

    …enough to get the Obami’s attention (at least he was AWARE of it, unlike the tea parties)

    Michele,

    Exactly..

    No matter how you slice it, the liberals will try to indoctrinate anyone slow enough to be caught..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  9. Will someone please tell me what we are going to do?I am really frightened.

  10. It’s my understanding these so called spending cuts are simply being re-allocated to other spending programs. Another slight of the (left) hand?

  11. Thank you for calling out another one of Obama’s magic tricks.

    Work towards a “change” in 2010.

    I am writing and working towards publication, attending local conservative group meetings and attending CPAC 2010.. On top of a 24/7/365 job..

    Join the fight. The meek will inherit NOTHING.

    Thanks as always,

    Kurt,

    So true, my friend..

    Any “cut” will find its way to more “needy” programs. WE as the “contributors”, will NEVER see a dime of what has been taken forcefully from us.

    My conservative slogan: Work for “change” in 2010, never give up, never give in and never again”..

    Damn, I like it..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  14. jafamimi,
    Theres no one in Washington to listen and the media is going to make sure we arent heard.
    I say we just lay in the weeds for the next 18 months and let them hang themselves. Thats what I think is actually going on with the Republicans in congress. Letting the Democrats hang themselves like Carter did is easier than fighting them – which only makes the media report crap like they did during the teap parties.
    18 months – July 2010 – it the popularity of the Democrats will be a different story entirely or my name aint Jack the Bear.

    jack

  15. Larry, you mention that “misleading ‘tax cut’.

    Did you know the revised withholding tables IRS put out in March are wrong, and alot of folks will be owing taxes when they file their returns?

    TurboTimmy is a real astute guy.

  16. noleftturnz

    Jennifer,

    Thanks for your comments..

    Those who don’t know Jennifer, she is the President of a campus Republican club where she fights the liberal enemy on one of the most liberal campus’ in the area.

    Holler of you need any help..

  17. noleftturnz

    Jackthe bear, (great name)

    There is no doubt that they will hang themselves if given the opportunity.

    They still have an almost clear filibuster-free shot at any legislation that they want.

    Our “disapproval” on the record forces them to elaborate on their socialism. It doesn’t HAVE to be a fight, we just need to force them to publically verbalize their positions and we need to explain its carcinogenic effects. Our silence might appear to make us complicit or weak in some way.

    Just a thought..

    No matter what, they have a proven history of self destructive policies to rely upon and they will not let us down..

    Thanks as always and welcome, my friend.

    Fran,

    Can’t everyone claim “Geithnre’s Complex” and ask for forgiveness?

    Or would it be “Daschle’s Disease” or “Sibelius’ Syndrome”..

    They never let you down..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  19. That was a little disingenuous of me. For a moment there I was feeling like I WANTED to be Jack the Bear. You know its just frustrating to have to stand back and watch this nonsense going on. Nothing – nothing drives me more crazy than when Pelosi is on the news. I want to go after her like Jack the Bear. But, in the end its still me – Dan Prosser just dealing with life on the most sane blog I know of on the internet. Obviously Im not new. Sorry Larry.

  21. Sil in CNY

    My conservative slogan: Work for “change” in 2010, never give up, never give in and never again”..

    PERFECT Larry….perfect!

  22. Larry, I agree with Sil in CNY! I am originally from Oswego, NY, so that might be why.

    Realizing that alot of the jerks in DC are up for re-election in November 2010, I just can’t fathom how we are going to do this….yet.

    Third parties never seem to have a chance and often act as ‘spoilers’, and the Republican Party is so far afoot, can we bring them back to true conservative values and initiatives?

    Does anyone see the way ahead?

  23. noleftturnz

    Fran,

    I’m working on it..

    Going to another conservative meeting with Stitch tonight..

    I’ll let everyone know exactly what things look like..

    Michael Steele can get things moving, I’d like to see him out front on all of this.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  24. If the 17 billion in cuts can’t be considered as “chump change”, I take it I therefore can condsider the millions upon millions of dollars that Obama has awarded ACORN and other “shaded” institutions as being “chimp change!”

    Larry,

    Not only does this article tie in with your last of “Fundamentally Backwards”, but also with “Splitting Hairs.” The perceived ignorance of the black race, even being taught the “po’ me” fundamentalistic train of thought by the liberals, I find it hard to except that somewhere, somehow, there isn’t one person among them that can see the truth. I find it hard to believe that a whole race of people would not accept their self-responsibilites and lose their self-respect as a human being.

    But more to the light, Congress’ and Obama’s wishes to dumb down the most vulnerable children while issuing scholarships to Palestinian students only proves the point I was trying to make in “Splitting Hairs.”

    This “president” is showing his allegiance to the Islamic Nations, the very same nations that covertly brought him to power.

    This “man” is not a leader of my country. He has shamed all patriotic Americans by apoligizing for our nation to every third class totalitarian of the world. Now he is selling out our own people’s education to those that would rather de-capitate us.

  25. A bit off topic, but just released:

    http://www.GOP.gov/detainees

  26. We are facing a 2009 budget in the trillions of dollars and the democrats think everything is fine. The following Letter To The Editor was just printed in the local (liberal of course) paper:

    “Tea-baggers: know-nothings

    Tea-baggers should realize that they are the minority. Most people feel that they are being taxed about right. Most people realize that to live in a great country, they have to pay for it.

    Tea-baggers are the know-nothings of the 21st century. They have no solutions to address the nation’s issues. All they can think about is themselves.

    K.J. Walters

    Monroe”

    This idiot lives in the county next to mine. I know a lot of people there and none of them have ever told me that they were being taxed just right Apparently, this moron must have skipped all the math classes and has no idea what trillion means. Just wait until his/her ox gets gored and we’ll see just how loud he/she yells then.

  27. Well, I can’t wait to see what the economy does when the shit hits the fan in Oct with all the new deficit spending, and the associated tax increases sure to follow. All the nonsense on the news about things getting better ( bank profits etc.) will hit a brick wall after all this economic poison hits the system. Ironically all that liquidity is your tax money not any real economic activity.The only way they can increase bank solvency is with more of our money.

  28. Some of you have mentioned what’s the road ahead, what can I do, etc.

    Well, as a minimum, we all need to keep ourselves more informed about what’s going on. I’ve written in my own blog before that simply voting once in a while isn’t being a good citizen anymore. We’ve all got to be more active and involved.

    Watching a variety of news broadcasts, subscribing to and reading various political outlets on the Net, researching stuff for yourself on the Net, writing/calling your Congressionals, participating in blogs, like Larry’s here, and exchanging ideas. Heck, even start your own blog, like I did (http://ja-js.blogtownhall.com).

    In other words, don’t lose hope, don’t give in or give up, and let your voice be heard. One voice may be that in the wilderness; many “one voices” joined together will be that which overcomes.

  29. Larry,

    There is something wrong with the math, or my math, or my thinking, you be the judge.

    Obama and his team are not cutting the budget, in fact, Obama’s budget is $400 billion larger than Bush’s 2008 budget and $100 billion larger than the bloated budget resolution Congress just passed.

    The fact is the budget Obama released this week is basically the same budget his team released two months ago in “outline” form.

    It adds over $9 trillion to our national debt, doubling the total debt accumulated since the start of our country through the Bush presidency.

    It includes the Carbon Tax which could be as high as $2 trillion.
    It includes the massive socialized healthcare program.
    It even ignored the $3.4 trillion budget Congress had passed and reverted back to Obama’s original $3.5 trillion budget. A slight of hand to the tune of $100 billion. Meanwhile Obama is going to cut “no chump change” $17 billion? Somebody hold my dipstick!

    There are no new budget cuts. These “cuts” were all in Obama’s original budget while he has repackaged his budget with more spending, taxes and ignoring Congress’ bugetary resolution.

    He simply released the words of “budget cuts” to the ever idolizing media and they ran with it, eager to stain themselves with ink or make-up to get the next lie out from their Adored One.

    The sad part is that even our Republican leaders are only trying to downplay the budget cuts instead of expose them for what they are. A lie to the American people.

    Tied in with the quality of education that students have received in the past, I doubt if anyone will figure it out anyway. Or maybe I’m all wet.

    The “answer”? (my answer, I guess..) to your question will be today’s “Thought of the Day” as soon as I get done with it, entitled “Joe’s Numbers”.

    Thanks for the motivation, my friend..

  32. Well, Larry, thanks for trying to stop by my blog. I appreciate it.

    Sorry the link didn’t work. Here it is again: http://ja-js.blogtownhall.com. If it still doesn’t work again, just cut and paste to your browser.

    I don’t blog with the dedication that you do, Larry, but maybe some of my articles will prove good enough to send to your liberal friends – you know, just for the irritation value.

    It’s easy to forward/send my articles to others just by clicking on that feature at the end of each article. So, if you’re so inclined, spread the, er, ah, “wealth.” Ha-ha!

    I welcome readers and commenters. After all, the idea is to contribute to and stir the dialogue, exchange of ideas, etc.

  33. I just recieved this in my mail. It is off topic, but I think it is worth a read.Written by an Australian Dentist

    To Kill an American
    You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.

    So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is . So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

    ‘An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish , Polish, BelgianRussian, or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

    An American may also be a Comanche, Oneida Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

    An American is Christian , or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims i n America than in Afghanistan.The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

    An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

    An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.

    The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness..

    An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

    When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

    As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan …

    The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America .

    Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11 , 2001 earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

    So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo , and Stalin , and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself . Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

    Please keep this going!

    RME KRNL,

    That was the ticket!

    Great work. I’ve pasted you into my favorites tab.

    I encourage all NLTZ family members to check out this good man’s site.

    I enjoyed your WRITING. We do not BLOG. A “blog” is as follows: “Timmy didn’t talk to me today..I’m going to eat a gallon of ice cream..I hate myself…I’m bored..) Besides, “BLOG” affords the famous media types the opportunity to sneer at our contributions.

    Thanks for being a HERO. You heard me. My brother did two tours in Vietnam proudly. We just lost him about two years ago..

    Holler if you need anything. Stop by any time. HEROES are always welcome at NLTZ.

    Thanks as always,

  35. The “Annointed One ” is simply following the ‘Dictator Mantra’ – “Keep your subjects poor and stupid”. And, just his hero Chavez, the next step is to be “President for Life”. Oops, that might not work – Hugo actually drills for oil, while the Annointed One just makes an oily mess of everything .

  37. Just found this site and it is great!!! I’ll be checking it each day.

  38. RME KRNL, I’m having trouble trying to post a comment at your blog site.

    When I inputted the info at the register page , then clicked on the “Submit” button, I got a message that stated that my email address I used was already in the computer database of Townhall.com. It then asked me to input my email address and zip code, in order for me to post a comment. I then inputted the email address they said that was already was in its computer database and my zip code, and clicked on the “Submit” button.

    Would you believe the next page stated that that email address ( the one that it stated earlier was already in its computer database) did NOT exist in its computer database!! May I be allowed to say, “DUH!!!” Oops, I just did! (Please excuse the sarcasm.)

    What gives? DOES the “right hand not know what the left hand is doing”? What a “Catch-22”! What is even worse, it only shows a physical address, in order to contact Townhall–no “Submit” order form and no email address!

    Why do they have it that way? That means that I have to “copy and paste” both notices (email address does exist AND email address does NOT exist), print it and then “snail mail” it to their physical address! (And my printer does not work right now!)

    Any suggestions or helps available from you? Thanks a bunch!

  40. RME KRNL:

    I couldn’t agree with you more. Americans lost control of this country because they did keep involved with what what going on around them, especially in all levels of government. I had the advantage of knowing some people who were involved in keeping a close eye on the political scene in my county. They got me involved in attending village town and county meetings. I quickly learned that you had to watch your politicians at all times to prevent them from sneaking things by you. I also got involved with what is going on with the state and national
    government.

    I worked for the county for 22 years which allowed me to watch them from a different perspective. I’m happy to say that a lot of the politicians and high level government employees don’t like me because I’ve blown the whistle on a lot of their dirty little back room deals. That certainly got me into trouble at times but it didn’t stop me. Now that I’m retired, I have a lot more time to watch them, and research things. My alleged representatives usually get aleast one e-mail a day from. I get the same insincere response from them every time about how happy they are to hear from me regarding my concerns and how proud they are “to know that my constituents take an active role in our government by corresponding with me, and I look forward to responding to your concerns in greater detail.” It makes me want to gag. It’s important to keep writing, e-mailing and calling them. They do respond to numbers and numbers are what they need to get re-elected.

    Never give up, never give in, never again.

  41. RME KRNL:

    Sorry about that the first two sentences should read ‘”I couldn’t agree with you more. Americans lost control of this country because they didn’t keep involved with what what going on around them, especially in all levels of government.”

    “Join the fight. The meek will inherit NOTHING.”

    Sound like a great bumber sticker and a rallying cry as well.

  43. LadyWolf,
    You posted this letter from your newspaper:

    “Tea-baggers: know-nothings

    Tea-baggers should realize that they are the minority. Most people feel that they are being taxed about right. Most people realize that to live in a great country, they have to pay for it.

    Tea-baggers are the know-nothings of the 21st century. They have no solutions to address the nation’s issues. All they can think about is themselves.

    K.J. Walters

    Monroe”

    Well, this person is absolutely correct. Tea-baggers don’t know anything; they are are just a bunch of gay men performing un-natural acts. However, Tea-partiers are another beast entirely! We do know what’s going in D.C. and we’re resisting in any way we can. It’ s just too bad that the author of that letter did not have the guts to go to a tea party and express their opinion. My guess is that K.J.Waters is a welfare recipient who claims a back injury, but can be found on the dance floor of the nearest night-club every Friday night.

  44. Ladywolf,

    Sorry about that the first two sentences should read ‘”I couldn’t agree with you more. Americans lost control of this country because they didn’t keep involved with what what going on around them, especially in all levels of government.”

    It’s okay. I knew what you meant. People are interpreting what I mean all the time, so I can surely do it for someone else sometime.

  45. triviaman,

    Sorry you had trouble posting comments to my blog. Can’t think why that happened. Hasn’t happened before.

    Sorry, but I’m not “technical” enough to advise you of a workaround. I just use the Townhall.com blog platform to write in. It’s not as if it were my own web site.

    If you like, post your comment here and I will copy and see if I can enter it for you on my blog. If that doesn’t work, maybe I can think of something else which will.

    Again, sorry. I really would like to have feedback and comments on my articles. The reason I write them in the first place is to stir dialogue and the exchange of ideas.

    And thanks for visiting my blog, too.

  46. RME KRML, I just wanted type a “quickie” on your March 12, 2009 post titled, “Whoa, Mr. President! Take a Breath!”

    When I read your phrase near the end of the post (“take the time to get it right”), I was immediately reminded of Davy Crockett, who liked to say, “Be sure you’re right; then go ahead.” (He was not the originator of that famous quote.)

    It’s too bad he did not think long enough about going to the Alamo and follow his own advice–or did he?

    What do you think about his decision?

  47. noleftturnz

    RME KRNL,

    Sir,

    Feel free any time you post to “cut and paste” the address to your site at the bottom of your comment.

    That way anyone can quickly head over and read your excellent site as well.

    By your lead, Sir.

    Larry

  48. Hey, triviaman,

    Here’s what I found when I checked out my blog, seemingly couldn’t post a comment to one of my own articles and then emailed Townhall.com about it.

    “Posting Error: Some users are reporting an error message when they attempt to post a blog or a comment. Be aware, this does not necessarily mean that your post does not go up. Please be sure to check your blog for the status of your post before you repost your work. Apparently, there is an error with the redirect to the page after a message has posted. We are aware and are working on the problem. Please be patient.” That’s from Townhall.com. So, it wasn’t you and it wasn’t me – it was THEM! (Well, we really already knew it wasn’t us anyway, didn’t we?)

    So far as your question about Davy, I think he made the right decision. He did the hard right thing, rather than the easy wrong thing.

  49. Larry,

    Thanks for the tip and the invite. I’ll try to remember and do that. But whenever I forget, anyone is invited to check into my blog any time to see if I’ve posted something – normally at least once a week, sometimes more often.

  50. To the family:

    I received the following from a “slightly” conservative friend,

    Plan of Action for conservatives:

    Back off….let all the men who want to marry men do so.

    Back off….let all the women who want to marry women do so.

    Back off…..Keep the abortion rate moving higher

    and in three generations there will be NO DEMOCRATES.

    Don’t you just love it when a plan comes togethr.

    A note of humor……if only it wasn’t so serious.

  51. So, RME KRNL, you have Townhall.com’s email address! Could you email it to Larry, so he could email it to me?
    My problem, though, was not with posting; it was with registering. Could you email Townhall about my problem and find out why I could not register, because of their contradictory statements about my email address–since I can’t “snail mail” them copies of those messages? It surely would speed things along! Thanks a bunch, in advance!

  52. Louise, Ted Turner doesn’t want to wait three generations, along with Prince Philip. They want the world’s population down to 10% or less of the current total in just a few years. But the question is: Do they want the gay people in that survival category? I hope not!

  53. RME KRNL, ignore my last post to you. I clicked on the “No Comments” link at your blog, then entered what Townhall originally said was my email address, at the page where I get a new password and clicked on “Submit”–lo and behold, it went through this time! They sent me a new password, so I could post to your blog!

    Happy days are here, again!

    Well, as Mac Davis said in his hit country song, “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.”

  54. In the name of realism, we should discontinue using the term “education” when referring to government education/schools. “Indoctrination” is much closer to the actual end product. I’m waiting for this “president” to come up with a whole panoply of regulations for homeschooling parents, with the intent, of course, of hassling and discouraging parents from involving themselves in the education of their own children. First and foremost will be creating some kind of educational requirement to “qualify” parents as teachers.

  55. I don’t remember who posted the story about the boy being held by the F.B.I. under false accusations and a misuse of the Patriot Act, but here is another version of the story refuting the earlier claims by the mother:

    Mom Outraged by Son’s Arrest Reportedly Knew of His Web Stardom for Phone Threats
    Friday, May 08, 2009

    Print ShareThisWhen a North Carolina woman accused the federal government last week of abusing the Patriot Act to imprison her teenage son for allegedly making bomb threats, the mother’s allegation caused quite an uproar, including calls to free 16-year-old Ashton Lundeby.

    But a new report by Wired News suggests that, not only was the teenager an online superstar in rogue tech communities for his prank phone calls, but his mother may have known all along that the boy was conspiring with others to make bomb threats.

    Lundeby, known online as “Tyrone,” allegedly had progressed into selling his services as a threatmaker, charging schoolchildren from across the country $5 apiece to place threatening, Internet-based phone calls that would cause administrators to shut down their schools, Wired News reports.

    “I heard the prank phone calls he made,” his mother, Annette Lundeby, said in the Wired report. “They were really funny prank calls.”

    On top of that, the U.S. Attorney’s office handling the case says her story about abuse of the Patriot Act was false.

    On March 5, FBI agents took Ashton Lundeby into custody at his Oxford, N.C., home and placed him in a federal juvenile facility in Indiana, where he remains on charges he made bomb threats against Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., and other schools.

    Last week the boy’s mother, Annette Lundeby, went on local TV and called her son’s arrest a violation of the Constitution. She said Ashton, who’d been home-schooled and lived in a house full of American flags, was innocent, and that others had “hacked her son’s IP address.”

    Bloggers on both the left and right of the political spectrum had come to the boy’s defense, calling him a victim of government oppression, prompting the U.S. Attorney’s office to issue a statement Thursday refuting the mother’s claim.

    Ashton Lundeby was charged under a long-standing law against making threats, and “this charge is unrelated to the Patriot Act,” the statement says.

    Wired News reports that Ashton was famous in online chat rooms as “Tyrone,” a prank caller who’d patch hundreds of like-minded jokers into Internet-based conference calls where they could listen to him harass employees at Wal-Mart and other stores.

    Videos of him doing so, often with profane and offensive language, are on YouTube.

    “Tyrone” allegedly moved on to bigger things, according to Wired News, which says he began calling in bomb threats and pretty soon was being paid for them via a PayPal account.

    Annette Lundeby admitted to Wired News that she knew Ashton had been making “really funny” prank calls, and that he’d made bomb threats, and that he’d received money for some of the calls — but she said it was all just a joke.

    An Australian college student who told Wired News that he tipped off the FBI about Ashton said Annette Lundeby knew exactly what her son was doing.

    “His mother knew that he was making calls, because she’d come on the microphone when he was talking and tell him not to do any bomb threats because the house was going to get raided,” the student told Wired News.

    Rick2,

    Excellent idea..

    Shall we make a rhyme out of it?

    “Indoctrination Station”

    What do you think?

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  57. noleftturnz

    Rick2,

    Sorry hit submit too fast..

    Along your lines, I’d like to see the “requrements to qualify as PARENTS”..

    The PROBLEM comes from the fact that most of the PROBLEMS comes from the singular form of the “family”.. PARENT not parentS..

    The left destroys the family in the lowest class through welfare and then the “results” are placed in the public schools..

    What could go wrong there??

    Larry

  58. let’s not forget the $190 billion (over 10 years) that Obama SAYS he will collect by taxing off-shore tax havens.
    Gee, isn’t that only $19 billion a year!?
    Didn’t they piss away a LOT more than that JUST in the 9000 earmarks of the $800+ billion stimulingus package?
    And they said that WAS chump-change!

    Trust me, after the FIRST year of taxing off-shore tax havens, the people getting taxed will simply move their money somewhere else.
    So the second year he will collect??
    And the third?? Fourth??
    Yeah, I thought so…

    Yeah, he SAYS he will cut $17 billion.
    Its just another, “watch my right hand, watch my right hand”.
    Meanwhile, his left hand is stealing you blind.

    Obama is a LIAR, a THIEF, and a COWARD.

    This was in today’s Drudge Retort”

    “CBS Announcer: Troops Want to Kill Pelosi, Reid

    In an issue of D Magazine welcoming President Bush to Dallas, CBS Sports golf announcer David Feherty wrote that U.S. soldiers would like to kill House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there’s a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death,” he wrote.”

    It’s nice to know that our military is as fond of the two socialist weasels as we are. With them on our side we have a fighting chance.

  60. Flying Rat

    LadyWolf

    That is good to know, and falls in line with what I hear talking to reservists and National Guardsmen.
    When the civil war starts, Obama will deploy troops to shoot down the citizens.
    Little does he know whose side these troops will be on.
    Lock’n’Load.

  61. Flying Rat:

    I just read that the botox queen made a Mother’s Day visit to Iraq. I wonder if she’ll get out alive.

  62. LadyWolf,
    If we’re lucky, one of the Iraqis will mistake her for camel and take her home!

  63. Larry: Growing up with you, I knew you would grow into the amazing person that you are. I also wanted you to know that I am Human Resources/Payroll for approximately 600 people. There were so many people singing praises when they received $10.00-$20.00 extra dollars on their checks the first week of March 2009. Since then, the reality has set in, and large portion of the people have come in and asked that that $10.00-$20.00 be re-held on the payroll checks. I offered a warning that the tax tables of the next filing year may not reflect any type of compensation for the win fall they had received. Another surprise for all to find…but unfortuantely, too late for most to realize it or adjust for it….

    P.S. – I am really proud of you big brother!!

  64. Larry, I have approx. 40 pcs. of 3 X 5 plaques (brass on wood) with the “The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil” quotation.
    I would like to donate them to your efforts at CPAC, if you think you could make use of them.
    Let me know where to send them in time for you to receive them at your spot there…(doesn’t seem to make sense for you to lug them with you… but, let me know…

  65. I had e-mailed both my congressman and senators expressing my concern over Obama’s proposed budget.

    Today I received a letter from Sen. Johanns (C) who has done a better job in holding conservative values closer in his work than anyone out of this state that I’ve seen in quite some time.

    During the Senate debate on the budget on April 2, 2009, he introduced an amendment that would have limited the amount Congress spends on non-defense, non-veterans disretionary programs to the expected rate of inflation. Under this amendment, he said, spending in fiscal year 2010 would grow at 1.2% as 0pposed to the 9% increase contained in the budget. It would have saved $36 billion in2010 and $194 billion over the next five years. It was defeated by a vote of 43-55.

    In another example of Washington stealing our tax money and cramming laws down our throats, (not his words) Senator Johanns told of the effort to enact a cap-and-trade law to address climate change through a shortcut legislative maneuver that bypasses normal Senate procedures.

    It limits debate to 20 hours, while most legislation has unlimited debate. The procedure also imposes restrictions on what amendments can be offered. Is everyone getting the full depth of this? The democratic controlled Congress will only discuss issues they want to talk about for a short time and in limited form!
    My God, we are seeing the First Amendment stripped away right in our own Federal Government!

    My Senator introduced the amendment #735 to the fiscal year 2010 budget, which would ensure cap-and-trade legislation would not be slipped into law using the budget reconciliation process. The majority of the senators joined him in supporting that amendment in passing 67-31.

    However, the budget conferees ingored the amendment and the clear bipartisan support of it by omitting it from the conference report. This re-opened the door to enact cap-and-trade legislation through the budget reconciliation process. It is back to square one again.

    It would seem as though no matter what common sense plan, any rational thought applied to a better solution, Obama has someone there to block it. He is determined to “re-shape” or “re-make” America his way.
    Too bad for America.

  66. Larry and Family:

    I read this information, on WND and found it very interesting. This is the link :
    http://wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=97201 There are also several
    other very informative articles in today’s newsletter.

    Lyle H. Rossiter Jr., M.D., “ a board-certified forensic psychiatrist who has testified as an expert in thousands of civil and criminal cases for four decades, makes a powerful clinical case that hardcore liberals are mentally ill in his book “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”

    According to the Doctor, “who has diagnosed and treated mental disorders for more than 40 years, it’s not just Obama: America’s leadership ranks are full of people with serious psychological problems, declaring that “the modern liberal mind, its distorted perceptions and its destructive agenda are the product of disturbed personalities.”

    While I don’t normally agree with the psychiatric profession, this certainly is a good explanation of the liberals. Unfortunately, they don’t see themselves as having “disturbed personalities” so they’ll never seek treatment.

    The inmates are truly in charge of the asylum.

  67. LadyWolf,

    I had read this article on the link you gave and I agree!

    The very words and actions of the Democratic politicians in today’s critical stage of America’s future is a unmistakable alert as to these “leaders” profile. The liberal majority in our government consider their popularity over any morality in their legislation. They are cocerned with the furthering of themselves, not with the betterment of America. The liberals want to “come out on top” when America falls to their socialistic ideaology.

    Quite frankly, the dumbass bunch of never never land bunch of narcissist loonies piss me off to no end!

    I’m just in that mood. I know you’ve all heard of “Joe the plumber”, his confrontation with Obama and his discrediting by the Obama crew. I just wish that Obamasmear had run into this “Joe the steamfitter” and let anyone have their best shot at me. Dumb asses!

  68. Caryl,

    Just wait until those peoples’ electric bills quadruple, and their gas bills, and their gasoline costs, etc, etc.
    Yeah, they get an extra $8-12 a week in tax breaks, only to spend $500-1000 per month MORE in hidden taxes.
    IDIOTS!
