"Extreme" Failure


In this most recent election cycle we are often told that a candidate is just too 'extreme' to be allowed to serve in the United States Congress. Much is made about qualifications as if it is some really hard job to be a politician. As with many things associated with the statist propaganda arm pretending to be journalists, we have to look for ourselves to find the truth. Several Tea Party candidates have been accused of being just too extreme for our nation. What qualifies one for such a distinction? Well, just to name two cases; that of Sharron Angle from Nevada and Christine O'Donnell from Delaware, what makes them extreme in the eye of the liberal lap dog press, is that they favor abolishing the Department of Education. Ironically, the media's complete ignorance of the fact that the DoED is completely ineffective is a testament to the futility of the government running schools. It is now manifesting itself in the stupidity of those 'educated' in said schools, and are blindly trying to protect the failed system. Of course many believe that is the point, they want us dumbed down, we're easier to control that way. Pardon me for wandering off the point, however. The people calling Ms. Angle and Ms. O'Donnell extreme never call government extreme. Supporting a department that has failed miserably while spending Billions and Billions of taxpayer's hard earned money is not extreme. Putting thousands of people in offices all over the country, giving them above average salaries, union perks and golden retirement deals, while they lord over a system that is steadily failing to achieve the intended goal of educating our children; that's not extreme to these publicly educated media dolts. When is the last time you saw a so-called journalist give you even a few facts on the Department of Education? Well, I'm no journalist, and though I attended public school most of my education is self imposed or learned in the school of hard knocks. But I will give you some facts:

  • Department of Education was spun off of the Health Education and Welfare department by Jimmie Carter in 1980
  • The proposed budget for 2011 for the DoED is ~ 76 Billion dollars
  • The average salary of the Departments 5000+ employees is ~ $79,000
  • The graduation rate is declining. (we are told that the minority needs the government more than any of us) Minority graduation rates are abysmal. http://www.allbusiness.com/labor-employment/labor-sector-performance-labor-force/10562205-1.html Don't let them fool you. They have taken to including GED's as graduation to skew the graduation rates and make it look like they are doing a good job. But studies show that GED "graduate's" have the same unemployment percentages almost as other drop-outs. This is government; they have to lie because the facts make them look like idiots.
  • Laws are passed every year almost to 'invest' in our children through education, below is a list of those laws

    •1965: Elementary and Secondary Education Act
    •1965: Higher Education Act (HEA) (Pub. L. No. 89-329)
    •1974: Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
    •1974: Equal Educational Opportunities Act (EEOA)
    •1975: Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EHA) (Pub. L. No. 94-142)
    •1978: Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment
    •1980: Department of Education Organization Act (Pub. L. No. 96-88)
    •1984: Equal Access Act
    •1990: The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act)
    •1994: Improving America's Schools Act
    •2001: No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB)
    •2004: Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
    •2005: Higher Education Reconciliation Act of 2005 (HERA) (Pub. L. No. 109-171)
    •2006: Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act
    •2007: America COMPETES Act
    •2008: Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) (Pub. L. No. 110-315)
    •2009: Race to the Top
    •2009: Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act
    •2010: Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010

All of this government law-making and expenditure and propaganda about educating our children and the United States performance against other nations is completely embarrassing. 25th in Math, 12th in Reading, 20th in Science. We rank behind the likes of Latvia, no disrespect intended but does anyone believe that we shouldn't be near the top?


This government intervention into education is a complete and abject failure, having zero positive impact whatsoever on education in America. Yet, we are told that those who would like to turn back the responsibility for educating our kids to local officials, closer to home where we have control, not some bureaucrat in Washington D.C. are extremist! Spending billions and billions of dollars and creating a mountain of red tape for our educators while completely failing our children, THAT is not extreme to these government apologist and propagandist!

The next time someone tells you that getting rid of the Department of Education is extreme, you look them square in the eye and say, "You lie! Keeping our children ignorant and unprepared for self reliance is extreme and despicable."

While we're at it, would you like to talk about the Department of Energy, which was created in 1977 with the expressed purpose to make America less dependent on foreign oil? It's FY2010 budget request was 26.4 Billion of your dollars, but this is coupled with the 38.7 Billion of your dollars from the 'stimulus' bill. That's a total of 65.1 Billion dollars of our hard earned money. I ask you my friends, are we less dependent on foreign oil? Have we adequately accessed our resources here in America? Once again, a complete and total failure for a government agency to carry out it's mandate. Yet, if one proposes to get rid of such wasteful incompetence, they are called extreme by the democrats and their propagandist arm, so called journalist. What a joke!

The Founding Fathers spoke with great clarity about the incompetence, corruption and tyranny that always accompanies a strong central government. They knew that no matter how society changed, one thing that never changed was the utter failure of large government organizations to deal with day to day problems of the American people. That is why they set this government up to leave those powers to the states and the people. You have a choice this coming Tuesday. You can vote for a Republican, and help attempt to restore this nation to it's previous greatness and Constitutional government. This will be a long battle as we must clean out the socialist within the Republican party as well while we move along to dismantle this government. OR; you can vote for anyone else, basically allowing democrats to continue to spend Billions and yes, now even Trillions of your hard earned dollars on historically proven failures of socialistic frivolity. What a pathetic bunch of inept characters we have allowed to infect our government. In any business in the world they would be the laughing stock, unceremoniously shown the door for their intellectual delinquency.

The choice is yours. The money is yours. The arrogance is theirs. The inexplicable stupidity is theirs. Research; Decide; Vote; Watch.

Vote, rinse, repeat!

Worse Than Murder!


What could be worse than murder? Stealing someone's vote, that's what. 'Come on' you say, be serious, Keith. Murder is taking a life, stealing a vote doesn't come near that. You are wrong, my friend. Having murdered someone you have their blood on your hands. Having stolen someone's vote, you have the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots on your hands. Hundreds of thousands of men and women have laid down their lives for the right of each of us to vote for our future. What kind of vile piece of human debris could steal that from you and sleep at night?

Recently, in several states, it has come to light that after two years of preparation the election officials in those states have found it impossible to get our military veterans their ballots in a timely manner. Late reports have state officials acknowledging that many veterans votes will not be counted this year because of these failures. Our brave men and women, laying down their hearts, their legs, their arms, their skulls and their lives for this nation, will not have a say in who leads them in that endeavor. I'm sure that it is purely coincidental that the most egregious are heavily Democrat states like Illinois and New York. This is beyond unacceptable. This is treason! You must forgive me, my fellow Americans but there is no punishment adequate to alleviate this dispicable behavior! Hanging in front of the poll place with a sign that says, "THIS is what we do to treacherous vote stealers!" is the closest thing I can think of that would suffice to heal this wound. I'm sorry, but I have no pity for these traitorous people. Oh PLEASE!! DO NOT tell me that this is a simple clerical error. They have had 2 years! 730 (seven hundred and thirty days) to prepare to get this system in order to make sure that our finest citizens can exercise their most precious privelege and right; to vote for the representative of their choice who may send them into harms way. There is absolutely zero excuse for this!

As of this writing, the news is filled with stories of voting machines 'malfunctioning' and having democrat candidates already checked. In some cases when one checks the 'straight republican' box, one finds that all of the democrat candidates get the vote. These machines are programmed people! It doesn't just 'accidently' vote for you! There is a special place in hell for someone who could steal a persons vote. I am at a loss for words and that doesn't happen...what do you say about someone like that?

Just today, Sandra Day O'Connor was brought in as a pinch hitter for another judge on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and an Arizona law requiring ID to vote was shot down, one week before election day! Google it, you'll see. This law has been on the books since 2004 and BAM! just like that, nope, you can be tootie fruitie and vote in Arizona this year. Is there any doubt in your mind that this is so illegal aliens can vote? Or, that voter fraud can take place? All of this, ALL OF THIS, is liberal fraud. Democrats, almost exclusively are stealing Americans votes, including American soldiers. How can any decent citizen of this fine country give any quarter to a democrat this year?

If you don't vote; you give comfort to the enemy within.
If you vote third party, you give comfort to the enemy within.
If you don't impress upon your friends the importance of voting out the democrats this term; you give comfort to the enemy within.
If you vote for anyone other than a Republican this cycle; you affirm that stealing votes works; you affirm that veterans do NOT deserve to vote!

Now I know that some of you will say, "Keith you're going too far. We should vote third party!"
Let me make an analogy my fellow patriots. It is like you have two large armies battling on the field of honor. They are somewhat evenly matched. One army represents unspeakable evil and terror. The other, maybe not Nirvana, but at least some freedom and liberty. Off to the side you have a small militia. They fight against both armies. True patriots all, representing only faith, hope and love; but completely outnumbered to the extent that they will be annihilated. I come over the hill and see the coming battle before my eyes. To who do I lend my life? True, it would be honorable to die for the good militia. But would that be the best utilization of my life? Is that worth the end of my talents which could be lent to change the good army in the future? Do I fight for the evil army? Surely not. Or; do I fight for the good army, with perhaps an unpopular general, not perfect, but at least fighting for freedom? What is your life worth? What is your vote worth? Do you die on this hill? Do you live to fight another day? It is your choice, and I and the good army, are willing to let you make it. The others are not, they steal your choice from you. You see, they are smarter than you. They know better than you what is good for you. Maybe you should just roll over and show your belly...

Vote In Blood!


As we come upon this monumental election, the emotions throughout the country are on high alert. People are frustrated beyond belief for a variety of reasons. Some are frustrated that the government is too powerful. Some are frustrated because they want the government to work for them and it doesn't. Some are just frustrated because they want the government to leave them the hell alone and let them work and raise their families as they see fit. Regardless of where you fall among the political spectrum, you should absolutely vote this year. Despite your political stripe, unless you are a full blown Marxist or Socialist, you should vote Republican this year.

Now I know that a number of Americans will say, "Well, they're all the same and the Republicans screwed up too." That is true but it is apples and oranges. More importantly, it was Socialist Republicans that screwed up. This is not about R and D. It's about L and C. It's not Republican and Democrat; it's Liberty or Communist. This administration and this Democrat congress have shown beyond any shadow of doubt what the contemporary Democrat party is. It is nothing more than a thinly disguised communist/socialist cabal intent on redefining this nation into something that would cause our Founding Fathers to rise up and rebel once again. Even more what they have proven rather brazenly in fact, is that they are really just a den of thieves siphoning off Billions and even Trillions of hard-working Americans tax dollars to line the pockets of them and their lobbyist friends. It is despicable how much corruption has been ingrained into our political system.

So, Keith, why should I vote for a Republican when I am not confident that they have learned their lesson? Good question. The simple fact is that for now we are a two party system. The Tea Party for the time being has decided to attempt one last time to revive the Republican party into the party of freedom that it is supposed to be. But this is their last chance. For now, it is clear we simply cannot risk letting Democrats continue destroying this great nation. This cycle, we can give no quarter to Democrats. Any vote for anyone other than a Republican is a vote for Democrats. You will never hear me say this again. Either the Republican party will return to it's conservative roots or it will immediately be turned into a third party wannabe. However, Obama, Pelosi and Reid have shown exactly who they are and what they will do to America.

Do Not Forget how they passed the stimulus despite Americans begging them not to.

Do Not Forget how they passed bailouts after we begged them no to.

Do Not Forget how they lied, cheated and ignored the Constitution and the congressional rules to pass Obamacare even though we begged them not to.

Do Not Forget that Cap and Tax is just sitting there waiting for a Senate vote. The most oppressive tax on prosperity in the history of mankind. A knife in the heart of our economic system. All based on proven falsified science, meant only to put more money in their hands through the trading of carbon credits. They take you for fools you know.

My fellow Americans. We cannot let this moment pass without a resounding effort. This election cannot be simply a midterm turnaround. This must be a referendum on Socialism once and for all! If you have any decency and respect for this country at all, you can do nothing but vote for a Republican. If you just can't bring yourself to do so then for the sake of your grandchildren, who Obama has already put into debt to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars, stay home. Retain some small sense of decency in your life. This country was founded on the principle of freedom and individual responsibility. This is not a socialist nation and will never be. We will fight to keep it so. Many a man and woman have died so that you have the right to vote. Blood is on that ballot. Do you seriously think that they died so that you can vote for Socialism! You simply cannot believe that and be an American. They died for your freedom and nothing else. If you believe otherwise, go from us now in peace. Leave this land of the free and home of the brave. Go to one of your socialist enclaves and tell them not that you were once our countryman. Kiss your chains and leave us be. THIS country is for freedom and liberty. May God Bless these United States of America. May God smite her enemies abroad and within. Vote, my friends. But vote with blood on that ballot! Our servicemen and women have already spilled their blood upon it. Respect it!

We Die Apart, or Live Together


It occurred to me tonight, that while we fight each other over whether we should have our Liberty or not; there are forces around the world who would use it to slit our throats. Does that mean we should give it up in hopes that they will leave us be? Or; should we embrace our heritage and rise together to defeat the greatest threat to Western civilization? You know what? Our enemy has already answered this question for themselves. Can we?

Unfortunately, we must first defeat our own misguided fools before we can fully fight the world's battle adequately (Marx's useful idiots are not only useful to Communists). The current leadership in both parties is way too concerned with their own image and comfort to seriously engage the American public on the threat at hand. Make no mistake, only America can fight this fight. Not alone, with many friends. But only America can lead this fight. We must defeat the enemy within forthwith, eradicate the virus among us, revive the healthy tissue of freedom. Only then can we unleash the dogs of war. No less than the fate of the free world depends on it. Do you doubt me? If so, you are History's fool.

American Soldiers; One More Mission...


"No more love hath any Man than to lay down his life for another." That quote, while likely not exact, holds more truth than anything you will read short of God's love being expressed in biblical passages. In fact it's roots are in that very text. This is the quote that encompasses the deep and abiding respect that me and mine have always had for the American Soldier. It is with some trepidation therefore, that I here ask one more measure of allegiance be paid by those who wear the uniform (and of course some who don't out of necessity).

Please remember the following, especially page 2 near the bottom:


This is what the current administration thinks of you, the soldier returning from battle. You are a potential terrorist to them. Now I know this is old news, but you see we tend to forget. I don't want you to forget. So I humbly come before you and ask that you read again what your president thinks of you. And while his cohorts were saying this about you, he was genuflecting to the worlds dictators.

We have a very important election coming up. By all accounts, it will be a good night for Republicans. What I am here to ask you is this; what's the difference between a midterm spanking and a fundamental shift in the course of a country? My friends, I think the difference is you, the U.S. soldier active and retired. It is in that vane that I ask you, I implore you. Talk to all of your fellow soldiers and their families. Let us never forget what this administration said of you. Let us speak with one voice that this type of besmirching of our valiant volunteers is not only unacceptable but is contemptible. Please pass this on to all of your friends whether they be active, retired or family of such. Let our military make a resounding cry in support of fundamental change in America away from this foolish socialist experiment which demeans our Defenders and ridicules our Founding Fathers. Let no military man or woman of good conscience cast a vote for a Democrat in this election. To do so, is borderline treason. As to Republicans, they are not perfect, and mark my words, there are masses of people who will be right there with you in the next primary to hold them accountable as well. As for now we have but one real choice. For God's sake vote R!! Never forget the words of Harry Reid, democrat and Senate majority leader, "This war is lost!". These people have comforted the enemy for political gain. Let them no longer profit from that treasonous behavior. I leave it to your good judgement to decide the merit of my words this day. But a higher power will decide the merit of America's judgement. Choose well my fellow Patriots!

The Bank Job


Everyone loves a good bank heist movie. Whether it's Peter Falk in The Great Brinks Robbery in the '70s or Clive Owen in Inside Man in '06; you just gotta love a good bank job. Of course that's just the movies. We aren't so thrilled if our bank gets robbed. We really aren't very happy if our money is not insured and we don't get it back.
Recently, I have changed my mind about some of the current events. I began, like many, thinking that Barack Obama was a brilliant man, ambitious for sure, but smooth and intelligent. Then I began thinking that he was an idealogue, with powerful forces behind him to achieve an agenda long desired by the progressives in America; fundamental change of our country to a Socialist nation. Finally, I have come to conclude that he is really no more than a common thief. Now before we go any further let me make this very clear; I have no proof whatsoever for what I have to say here today. You should take it with a grain of salt. It is no more or no less than the ramblings of an old man based on his observations of the events that have transpired recently. Astute observations. Let's call it educated ramblings.

Let's just simply go over what we know. The financial industry was in dire straights for many years before the 'collapse' of September 2008. Any search of public records will find concerns being raised as far back as 2003. Probably even before that. The final 'collapse' happened less than two months before the election. The people who were crying wolf the loudest, threatening economic collapse, all had ties to the largest banking interests in the world. These people had connections with both parties. In other words no matter who won the election, they would get what they wanted. Next, Barack Obama was relatively unknown before the election, and though he is well known now at least to anyone who cares to see him; his history is still an enigma, as almost none of his papers or letters or writings of any sort have been released, except by himself, and then only to buttress his image that he is trying to convey. An image by the way, that is patently false by any reasonable examination of the facts at hand. Since the election, Obama has relentlessly pushed massive legislative bills, spending trillions of dollars. These bills typically are very large, 2000 pages plus. No one; seriously, no one really knows what all is contained in them in terms of what they are supposed to actually achieve and how. Public opinion has played zero interest in his decisions to date. What politician do you know who completely ignores public opinion? Even after it became obvious that pushing these bills may cost his party severe losses in the midterm elections he persisted, calmly and apparently unconcerned about the results of his agenda. Trillions more dollars have been spent by the Secretary of the Treasury who apparently cannot operate online tax software according to the instructions. The Federal Reserve has spent Trillions more behind the scenes in ways we may never know because, they refuse to be audited. That's right, they refuse. So much for that transparency thing. The people in charge? Bankers from the biggest banks in the world.

Now, I ask you. If you had colluded with the government for decades, loaning Trillions of dollars to people who obviously could never pay back the loans; and the time had come to get these toxic assets off the books or at least funded; what better way to do so than to rob yourselves (their bank and the governments bank)? You rob your bank by overstating the assets value, then claim the loss. You rob the government bank by creating a crisis for which the only solution is for the American taxpayer to give you Trillions without accounting to show where it goes. Brilliant!!

Barack Obama is nothing more than a common thief; sculking in the vault, shoveling money out the hole in the wall to the sewer escape below. Occasionally picking up the phone to assure the police and the public that he will give himself up soon, if a few more demands are met. Meanwhile the real scum is in the sewer where they belong, but alas, they are making off with the largest heist in the history of the world! The numbered bank accounts in Switzerland are thanking the heavens that finances are digital these days as there is no where near enough room for the cash being stolen from the American people.

As I stated before, this is simply the musing of an overactive mind (pre-ADHD generation). I have no proof that this is what has happened. But I ask you, my fellow travelers in this moment of human history; do YOU know where the 10 Trillion dollars went? Is it just 10 Trillion dollars? Has anything been fixed? Does Barack Obama seem remotely concerned about it? Do you believe that congressmen were paid off for their votes? Do you trust Wall Street Bankers? Other than perhaps the health care bill, would things be much different if John McCain had won the election? Why did Obama keep some of Bush's Treasury and Federal Reserve people? Do you believe that we will ever know where all that money ended up? 10 Trillion is 10 Thousand Billion. If 500 Billion of 10 Thousand Trillion was unaccounted for forever; would you be surprised? What would you do for 500 Billion dollars?

I rest my case. Let history judge my suspicious mind...
