Letter: Change we're going to regret

From an article comment posted March 14 at kdminer.com:

"Do the math, and things look bleak." It is scary, and it's coming our way fast. Well, before the article ended, it was "looking bleaker to say the least."

Let's look at bleakest. Our president's agenda is to destroy America as it was founded. He does not believe that the historical significance of America is relevant today. His plan is to impoverish America's citizens and denigrate the U.S. in the eyes of the world.

His policies as executed throughout his administration are meant to change the U.S. His latest is the use of the sequester to fabricate an absence of operational funds. His apocalyptic rhetoric about cuts, closures, layoffs, prisoner release, etc., is a fraudulent fabrication to prove his forecast. When, in fact, there are more dollars in 2013 than in 2012. Just not more, more dollars, rather less more, than the more, more dollars expected.

Washington borrows 45 cents of every dollar spent. No freeze, no cuts, just spend.

The president shuts down White House tours, and Bernanke buys paper at $85 billion per month. What am I missing!

Massive unemployment, regulations, taxes, trillion dollar deficits, 17 trillion dollar debt. Collapse. We are on our way to "bleakest."

The architect of our sorry, sad predicament is President Obama.

Tom Trussell

@Linda/Jimi/Amaryllis

Obama has handled Benghazi the same way Bush did the 12 or so similar attacks that happened on his watch. What is the difference? Oh yeah, you like Bush, that is the difference.

Article comment by: No, to Those Screaming When Only Dems Are In Charge

Just amazing how these people of the Republican party follow the commands of the rich and powerful in charge of that party.

There was little or no screaming by Republicans when Reagan built the size of the federal government. There was little or no screaming by Republicans when GW started and grew an enormous security network costing trillions. There was no or little screaming by Republicans when the War President (who was AWOL) started 2 wars without any plan to pay the trillions they continue to cost us. There was little or no screaming by Republicans when seniors were given a prescription drug program without competitive bidding. There was little or no screaming when operatives carried millions and millions of "protection money" and give it to Afghanistan war lords. There was little or no screaming when Reagan wasted billions on star wars and the development of war armaments the pentagon said they didn't want.

The hypocrisy of those like the letter writer is helping to destroy this country.

Ms Athens

“… it is you posting under a phony name. You are NOT Anson's Nephew but I AM Anson's Granddaughter. Want to talk phony?”

Actually I am Anson’s nephew (see above).

”Jimi L and I are not one and the same but thanks for the compliment.”

Sorry, not buying it. After all if you think myself and everyone else who disagrees with you here are one and the same – then back at ya!

“Would that I could think and write as well as him.”

Since he is consistently proved wrong – just as you are – I can see where you two are one and the same.

”You have also asked repeatedly why we had to lose 5000 troops under Bush? To which I respond, why have we killed 60 million unborn children,…”

Sorry, no correlation what-so-ever and speaking of abortion, when can we expect an answer to my question what is your proposed punishment for a woman who has an abortion? Oh and before I forget – don’t like abortion, don’t have one. In all other cases mind your own business.

“But there were WMD's in Iraq..”

Still wrong, no matter how many times you post it and BTW the term is WMD.

“Bush, after 9-11, was criticized for continuing to read to a classroom. Exhibiting leadership and aplomb,”

OMG, even you can’t believe that!

“… he recognized he needn't rush out, scaring hell out of the children..”

So telling a classroom of children that the president had to leave would “scare the hell out of them?” As FLS is so found of posting – LOL

“Thank God obama wasn't at the helm - he couldn't even handle Benghazi.”

Actually he has handled that mess quite effectively.

"I guess Anson, or Chuckles or Bob or whatever he calls himself, can’t believe there is more than one person on this forum that still has American values. "

It sure makes me chuckle at how much Jimi/linda/amaryllis gets their nose rankled when accused of being one and the same right after accusing me and the verbose AN of being the same. LOL.

"But there were WMD's in Iraq and for Israel's sake, we need more presence near them."

We've already covered this Linda/jimi/amaryllis....no there were not, Bush lied and many died.

Well said and Thank You! I agree with everything you said.

I just responded to being charged with being you on another post.

I guess Anson, or Chuckles or Bob or whatever he calls himself, can’t believe there is more than one person on this forum that still has American values.

Bob Moore:

You wrote to Jimi Lightfoot you were close to believing he was me posting under a phony name. First, it is you posting under a phony name. You are NOT Anson's Nephew but I AM Anson's Granddaughter. Want to talk phony?.

Jimi L and I are not one and the same but thanks for the compliment. Would that I could think and write as well as him.

You have also asked repeatedly why we had to lose 5000 troops under Bush? To which I respond, why have we killed 60 million unborn children, some even born and left to die? Not a one out of 60 million was worth keeping Bob?

I am sorry for lost troops in not only Iraq but Vietnam, Poland, Germany, Italy, No Africa, the Islands. Most of them volunteered. Unborn babies did not.

I repeat, I was not for the Iraq War nor was Bush my first POTUS pick. But there were WMD's in Iraq and for Israel's sake, we need more presence near them. Hussein was a monster - I am not sorry he is gone.

Bush, after 9-11, was criticized for continuing to read to a classroom. Exhibiting leadership and aplomb, he recognized he needn't rush out, scaring hell out of the children while the MSM reported he fell apart. He handled it masterfully.

Again, criticism abounded at his flying around after 9-11. We had never had a similar attack, other planes were involved (PA, the Pentagon) and the SS knew not what to expect so were trying to protect him until they knew. The Towers and Pentagon were bad enough - had they taken out the POTUS it would have been a worldwide catastrophe.

Thank God obama wasn't at the helm - he couldn't even handle Benghazi.

"Sorry Chuckles, but I prefer living in the here and now. It's ovomits economy now, and it is not getting better."

Of course you do, how else could you pursue your unwavering hatred of a duly elected POTUS? I would almost bet you voted for him. LOL

As long as you keep getting those monthly checks though, right?

"What a brilliant post - laid BM/Chuckles out -

You notice they don't respond to anything they know they have so completely wrong there isn't much they can say. But you sure nailed it. "

I guess you missed that I responded, again, with truth. Not sure about AN, not my day to watch him, he can do as he chooses.

Again, the way unemployment is counted has changed very little in the last 20 years. Like it or not, that is a fact.

You should also take heed of the fact that I have never once said Obama has raised or lowered unemployment.

@FLS

"Of course, the latest figure does not even count those whose benefits have run out or those who are no longer even looking for work. Those are not counted and do not count at all to the ovomit administration."

Of course, they were counted by other administrations either, but you chose not to point out that fact, only Obama, whom you have some personal hatred for.

As I pointed out elsewhere....the way unemployment figures are counted has changed very little over the last 20 years.

What makes you think I get my writings from right wing sites and chain mail? Do you visit these media? Do you visit those sites? Are you the keeper of all info, right and left? Do you get Conservative e-mails from your friends and family? Just wondering.

I’m calling BS on you. You fabricate things and attempt to invalidate people when you can’t refute their points.

I’m not from or in LA. If I were I would be posting on their liberal newspaper sites and laying waste to liberal ideology instead of trying to get you to understand and allow people a different point of view other than yours.

If you want to test me on my writing originality throw any question or liberal viewpoint you want at me. I will respond as quickly as this forum allows, when they allow my posts at all.
I didn’t copy, cut or paste any of the above. It should be as obvious to you as it is others unless there is a chain mail about a Conservative Native American debating an angry white liberal male on some forum.

Speaking of LA, have you ever thought of moving there? It has more people that think like you. I’m just saying…

@ansons nephew

"lowest jobless claims in four years,"

And the latest jobless claims figures are 385k for the past month.

Link:

http://weaselzippers.us/2013/04/04/obamanomics-jobless-claims-spike-to-385k-exceeds-analysts-estimates-by-32k/

And to forestall your usual whining about the source being not acceptable to you, I will even include a leftist source link, just for you.

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/04/04/176221588/jobless-claims-rise-employment-report-likely-to-show-slow-job-growth.

Of course, the latest figure does not even count those whose benefits have run out or those who are no longer even looking for work. Those are not counted and do not count at all to the ovomit administration.

But hey, since you claim that no one pays serious attention to what I say, i do not expect you to respond.

LOL

Anson, eith mer you copy and paste at least once a day, or you type the exact same thing, word for word, and i dont think your extremely popular radio show allows you to have the time to do the latter!! Lol and yes, its actually a proveable statement, i just have better things to do with my time

“I write my own stuff and don’t get or open chain e-mails.”

Sorry, Jimi, too much of what you have posted over the past couple of weeks come directly from right wing sites and chain e-mails. In fact I am close to believing you are LA posting with a phony name.

“I’m a common sense Conservative and most of us have average intelligence …”

And many of you don’t

“… and don’t need to get our talking points from liberal celebrities, catch phrases or bumper stickers.”

Why would you get your talking points from any liberal? Of course as a liberal I don’t do that either, but I am puzzled as to why you would.

"because he and his friend Chuckles seem to think all information comes from chain e-mails(?) and Fox News and have difficulty understanding people actually do research from books, actual documents and other sources."

Not all information, just yours.

@OKR

"But the truth is that the Obama administration has changed the way the unemployment rate is calculated- by changing the definition of what it means to be unemployed."

Simple answer, no it hasn't. Period. If you say different, prove it.

@Linda

"And now we hear, to help our country, obama is going to give back 5% of his own salary. Woop de doo - that will sure help but I have a much better idea."

And yet, during the last election, when Ron Paul suggested he would do something similar, you cheered him for the decision.

Hypocrite much?

“OH MY LORD! ANSONS NEPHEW IS TELLING PEOPLE TO NOT CUT AND PASTE!!!”

Uhh, no I have not. Why do you righties insist upon posting such nonsense? I have pointed out the cut ‘n’ paste garbage from right wing websites and chain e-mails does nothing to forward the arguments of the poster – because the information is always flawed.

“the king of the craft wants no competition in his quest of copy and pasting more than any other psuedonym on this site!!”

I will now ask that you prove the above – oh, wait, you can’t. End of discussion.

Anson,

You stated,

“Nice cut and past – but it’s all incorrect. You need to find actual sources rather than just cutting and pasting chain e-mails.”

No cut and paste here for me. I did cut and paste your statement above though.

I write my own stuff and don’t get or open chain e-mails.

I’m a common sense Conservative and most of us have average intelligence and don’t need to get our talking points from liberal celebrities, catch phrases or bumper stickers.

And what actual sources do you refer to? I was writing a “What if” piece.

Now if you noticed a resemblance to the rein of Obama, that is either paranoia, coincidence or maybe you yourself can see some kind of parallel between how I would ruin America and how The Community Organizer is running that boat aground.

Ms Athens

“why do we even HAVE Head Start anyway? What do they interpret for 4-5 year olds there anyway?”

Head start is a program designed to prepare young children for school by giving them the tools to understand the importance of learning and proper conduct in the classroom. Why are you so opposed to exposing children to learning?

“And now we hear, to help our country, obama is going to give back 5% of his own salary. Woop de doo …”

And yet a couple of weeks ago you were complaining because the President was not taking a pay cut? Honestly, you need to take a position and stick with it, because this constant dichotomy is … well you know. And how about you turning back 5% of your Social Security income as an effort to alleviate the debt? Remember – every penny counts.

“Stop flying around in Air Force One Mr. president, stop taking vacation after vacation that costs us millions of dollars”

Still on that pathetic rant? When Obama reaches 1,020 vacation days – like The Criminal did during his eight year Reign of Error – we should be concerned.

“I have a suggestion - perhaps BM could take some of the money from his “Trailer Trash” book and pay for some lessons on actual research…”

Thank you for the plug of one of my books and your suggestion, but my research is impeccable and you have never been able to dispute any of it – well you have posted nonsense from fools like Barton and Corsi and WND and FAUX News ad infinitum, which are of course major sources of misinformation. .

OKR:

Thank you for straightening Bob Moore out.

You are so right on those figures, all of them different than the obama admin let's on. Like BM saying the other day unemployment has gone down under obama. Hahahahaha!

I have a suggestion - perhaps BM could take some of the money from his Trailer Trash book and pay for some lessons on actual research because he and his friend Chuckles seem to think all information comes from chain e-mails(?) and Fox News and have difficulty understanding people actually do research from books, actual documents and other sources.

Listening to Joe Pags read a long list of sequestion hits. Frankly, it was hilarious.

A sample:

Head Start - Interpreting things will be cut out of their program. ???? Hmmm! 17 Trillion in debt, why do we even HAVE Head Start anyway? What do they interpret for 4-5 year olds there anyway?

Everything on the list was something ridiculous that we shouldn't have ever been funding in the first place. All liberal garbage.

And now we hear, to help our country, obama is going to give back 5% of his own salary. Woop de doo - that will sure help but I have a much better idea.

Stop flying around in Air Force One Mr. president, stop taking vacation after vacation that costs us millions of dollars. You can keep your 5% in lieu of taking a few respites at Camp David as Bush did rather than Martha's Vineyard, Spain, etc.
