Qaddaffi: Crackpot Despot

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Qaddafi’s speech at the UN yesterday highlighted many of the things that most Americans find objectionable as regards that institution. First, however, there are three things he mentioned with which I firmly agree; that Obama is a son of Africa, that the UN should be moved to another country on the other side of the world and that no one should expect that world leaders suffering from jet lag and sleep deprivation will have anything coherent to relate in their speeches. He personally demonstrated this last point.

Most of the world’s leaders are not appreciably different from Qaddaffi; inarticulate, chauvinistic tyrants and gangsters who rule through the application of fear and favors.

To this Obama says that no nation should be above another. This is a problem when the Qaddafi’s of the world are allowed to proliferate while our means of protecting ourselves from such men and nations are being phased-out when not fully foresworn.

Be prepared.

He’s At It Again

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

This time he is lying in front of the UN. This time he is lying about climate change. Where are the climate refugees to which he alluded? Governmental efforts in this direction are purely a power grab, just as is government intervention in health care and the nationalization of economic and industrial sectors.

Climate change is real. It has always been real but Obama’s pledge to change the weather is the modern-day equivalent of Caligula sending his armies to fight against the sea.

The American experience during the Revolutionary War is proof that God uses weather to advance His purposes, as if more proof was needed. Climate change is real but it is not caused by human industry; it is caused by human iniquity.

In Barack Obama, as president of the US and Chairman of the UN Security Council, we witness the unbridled advance of global totalitarianism. Be ready.

Regarding the Discarding of the European Missile Defense Shield

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

The Obama administration’s decision to abandon the placement of the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic is not a big deal. The Poles and the Czechs are fully familiar with being betrayed by the West and the East and should be accustomed to such treachery by now. We got change, all right, and short changed, too.

Health Reform D-Baucul

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

The Baucus/Obama health plan requires all Americans to be insured and will heavily regulate all insurance plans. Everyone’s health care plan will change in a dramatic way. Should you fail to obtain your own insurance you will be fined. So, if the real point of this health care reform exercise is to supposedly provide coverage to the 45,000,000 among us who are allegedly too indigent to pay for their own coverage, how will these 45,000,000 be able to afford the fines? Will the government be subsidizing the insurance premiums or the legal penalties?

Wrong Again!

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Carter says the opposition to Obama is the result of racist attitudes. I oppose Obama’s overt and covert attempts to subvert our Constitution but am not concerned one whit that his skin is black. I am concerned however about the color of his heart and the shade of his intentions.

Tell Me Who Your Friends Are

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

There is an old German expression which, translated, means “Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are”. That Chavez, Amadhinejad and the usually USA-loathing members of the UN are buddying up to Obama should be a clear indicator of his mission and intent. His ascension to the chairmanship of the UN’s security council should leave us all feeling a little less secure.

He Needs Little Prompting

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

The reason Reid and Pelosi have invited Obama to address Congress and the nation (September 9) about health care reform is to associate his face, not their faces or the faces of their legislative lackeys, with the defeat of the “public option”. They are coming up for re-election next year. They have no desire to lose face and lose twice. Obama still has three years to encourage the voters to forgive his multiple transgressions.

Disease Discrimination

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

A “pandemic response bill” currently making its way through the Massachusetts state legislature would allow authorities to forcefully quarantine citizens in the event of a health emergency, compel health providers to vaccinate citizens, authorize forceful entry into private dwellings and destruction of citizen property and impose fines on citizens for noncompliance.

If citizens refuse to comply with isolation or quarantine orders in the event of a health emergency, they may be imprisoned for up to 30 days and fined $1,000 per day that the violation continues.

Why were we not pursuing this “Typhoid Mary” approach with HIV AIDS which is a far deadlier disease than H1N1? It has been, in fact, illegal for health care practitioners to “out” those with HIV AIDS.

What we have here is more than a health crisis; we are experiencing a full-blown mental health crisis.

Half-Right Harry Reid

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Harry Reid’s assertion that Ted Kennedy’s death will help the Democrats in congress may be a stretch but one thing appears certain; his death will surely benefit those of us who love liberty.
