From All Angles

With the report that Obama’s most recent budget submission raises taxes on everyone, despite his campaign promises, and the news today that the administration is literally paying people to enroll others in the SNAP program in effort to continue the entitlement culture, the liberal assault on the American people is coming from all angles. Add to that, the report that federal revenues are too hit record levels this year at $2.7 trillion, yet Obama will have you believe that the $85 billion dollar sequester was a huge concern and may be catastrophic to the economy. In fact, Obama is now making us feel the pain for that temporary slow down in spending by furloughing FAA workers, delaying flights and causing back logs at major terminals, this despite the fact that Obama just promised $200 million to Syrian refugees. Obama and his far left regime have discretion at how revenues are allocated so just know that they have chosen to make your traveling life miserable as punishment, and instead opting to give that money to Syrian refugees, this again despite record levels of revenue flowing into Washington DC.

I can not think of a more dishonest, uncaring, selfish, narcissistic, un American President than the current occupant. He has spent tens of millions of dollars on his own vacations while unemployment remains persistently high, GDP continues to drag along the bottom, and Obamacare continues to force companies to lower hours, cut benefits, and delay any expansion or hiring. Obamacare is a train wreck waiting to happen, as evidenced by the delay in the SHOP program, and lack of achievable benchmarks by the HHS department. Obama is truly out to serve his own interests, that of his cronies, and that of his far left, elitist base, and regular, hard working, God fearing Americans simply don’t factor into that equation. The average American is being squeezed from all angles to serve an elitist, selfish, far left community agitator and this is without question a truly sad, black mark in America’s history.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, vulnerable by approving lax security measures, a report released Tuesday by House Republicans concluded. The 46-page report accused Clinton — a possible White House contender in 2016 — of seeking to cover up failures by the State Department that could have contributed to the attack last year that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. The report, compiled by five House panels after a seven-month investigation, said Clinton approved reductions in security levels prior to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, contradicting Clinton’s testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Jan. 23

It’s gotta happen; you cannot do these across-the-board mindless cuts without having impacts like we started to see yesterday.” – Bill Press

    Is it possible for the liberal media to be any more ignorant, and in the tank for Obama? “Mindless across the board cuts”????? They weren’t even cuts, they were a slow down in the rate of spending. In fact we are still spending more money this year then we did last year, and there were no flight delays last year. Any chance Bill Press knows that?

        I ran into my favorite (loosely interpreted) Liberal in the locker room at the Y the other day. This guy likes to think of himself as a critical thinker, but, in reality, he’s just got the Leftist talking points memorized really well. I love jerking his chain, because often subtly sarcastic remarks just sail right through the void between his ears like there was nothing there but air (heh). I could sense he wasn’t in the greatest of spirits, and I commented that surely he must love the direction the country has taken since the election. He was literally at a loss for words, which is completely uncharacteristic of this guy. Turns out he had just written unexpectedly large checks to the IRS and the Indiana Department of Revenue, and his healthcare premiums had just taken a huge spike. This little voice in my head was saying “boo-frickin’ hoo”, but I just smiled and said, “that’s too bad — I’m sure Obama will fix it once he finds out about it. Besides, it’s probably all Bush’s fault anyway.”

  10. watsonthethird April 25, 2013 / 6:21 pm

    Hey there, Cluster. Just wondering if you read the article you linked to about food stamps. The individual doing the recruiting is doing so on behalf of the state of Florida, which provides her with funding for this purpose. The reason is explained in the article: “[T]he job also has a second and more controversial purpose for cash-strapped Florida, where increasing food-stamp enrollment has become a means of economic growth, bringing almost $6 billion each year into the state.” That’s why the state is paying her to do this. Maybe your beef should be with Governor Scott, who is a Republican by the way.

    But also, the article mainly focuses on the plight of 60-year old Lonnie Briglia and his wife, who fell on hard times, lost their house and their life savings trying to start a business, and now seem to be destitute or close to it. Are these the type of folks you consider to be “moochers” if they sign up for SNAP, like the state of Florida would like for them to do? Do they deserve any assistance from the rest of us? Or should they be completely on their own?

    • Cluster April 25, 2013 / 7:19 pm

      Watson,

      I never tire of a bleeding heart liberal who can always find a republican to blame and who can also find the emotional angle on every issue. It’s so refreshing.

      How about if we expand the conversation and elevate it to more of a critical thinking level rather than some juvenile emotional level? How about if we discuss the report that 1 out of every 5 households now receive food stamps? How about if we discuss the report that nearly half of all households now receive some level of government assistance? How about if we discuss the rapid expansion of entitlement spending in the last 4 years? How about if we discuss the 30% increase in federal government spending from 2008 levels? How about we discuss the fact that regardless whether a politician has an R or a D behind their name, most of them support an endless expansion of government spending? How about if we discuss the fact that approximately 1 out of every 3 people actually pay income taxes and are paying for this ever expanding government entitlement culture? How about if we discuss the fact that these same politicians are making laws for you and I that they are not subject to?

      Do these conversations interest you? Or are you still of the belief that these politicians actually care about you?

    • Count d'Haricots (@Count_dHaricots) April 25, 2013 / 7:23 pm

      watson,

      SNAP is a Federal Program, there is no provision in the Constitution for charity, no provision for charity using money expropriated from the states or expropriated from the people for a charitable purpose which can be done by the states or by the people. People can be generous (and Red State Conservatives are), and states can be generous (Red States are) in terms of charity; the Federal Government has no place; legally, morally or ethically providing “assistance from the rest of us”.

      The “more controversial purpose “ is”controversial” because there is no evidence that food stamps results in “economic growth“. Even if the Washington Post and Nancy Pelosi says it does.

      “Bringing in $6 Billion” at a cost of $11 Billion to the state is not economic growth to anyone except a Keynesian, Obama or a moron; but I repeat myself.

      The subject of the article is employed by a food bank which receives food stamps as remuneration (monetary incentive), The food bank is partially subsidized by the state of Florida, it does not state or imply that she is employed by Florida.

      Linking her salary to Gov. Walker, if that is your intention, opens the issue of government subsidizing Planned Parenthood which performs abortions (not mammograms), unless you are admitting that subsidizing an enterprise actually pays for everything that enterprise is engaged in. didn’t think so.

      • watsonthethird April 25, 2013 / 8:53 pm

        Cluster, pointing out that the state is behind the recruitment, and that the statement is governed by a Republican, is not so much to point the blame but to counter your statement that “the administration is literally paying people to enroll others in the SNAP program in effort to continue the entitlement culture.” If you consider that to be a juvenile emotional response, then perhaps you shouldn’t have made such a statement in the first place, especially since it is so easily refuted.

        Count, I didn’t say that she was employed by the state of Florida, nor did I imply it. The state provide her with funding, the reason being that the state believes it is in their economic interest to do so. The practice is controversial not only because the state claims it results in economic growth, but also because it raises the question of whether it is the state’s role to actively recruit people into the program. It’s one thing to have aid available; it’s another to actively seek out every recipient you can find.

      • Cluster April 25, 2013 / 9:03 pm

        Watson,

        So you are not interested in having a larger conversation?

        Didn’t think so. Carry on.

      • watsonthethird April 26, 2013 / 1:00 pm

        Cluster,

        Go for it. You just throw out a bunch of questions. That’s hardly a conversation. It’s typical of you: Demand answers to a half dozen questions and them claim victory when they aren’t answered. Sorry if I don’t bother with them. But back to your original post. You cited the article as evidence that President Obama is “literally paying” people to enroll in SNAP. It turns out it is the states that are doing that, including red ones. You engage in precisely the same tactics as those liberals you despise, including the glaring blind spot that prevents you from noticing.

        But also, the article’s primary focus, aside from the recruiter, is Lonnie Briglia and his wife. (You actually have to read past the first page to get to the gist of it.) They are senior citizens who lost their life savings attempting to start an ill-fated business, wound up losing their home to foreclosure, and are now borderline destitute. They aren’t your stereotypical “welfare queens” conservatives are so fond of demonizing. Should we as a society help people like the Briglias?

        Count at least provided an opinion, which is: “People can be generous (and Red State Conservatives are), and states can be generous (Red States are) in terms of charity; the Federal Government has no place; legally, morally or ethically providing ‘assistance from the rest of us’.”

        If I understand him correctly, all levels of government can engage in providing charity to others through taxpayer funds, except for the federal government. But to me that’s an artificial distinction. The constitution’s general welfare clause can be reasonably interpreted–and has been by the courts–to permit just this sort of tax collection and expenditure by the federal government.

        So then we get to the morality and ethics of it. Count was clear that there is no moral or ethical rationale for the federal government to provide assistance to old people who, for one reason or another, can barely feed themselves. He was less clear about other levels of government. I think we as a society do have a moral obligation to our elderly and I have no problem with it coming from the federal government. I get that there are differences of opinion, that no one ever convinces anyone of anything on B4V, so as you say, carry on.

        As for the growth in SNAP aid, are you really surprised that it has grown in the aftermath of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression? That’s the main driver. It is also true that in response, the Obama administration permitted states to loosen their eligibility requirements. And states have, including the red ones. As the spokesman for red state Mississippi stated, “We decided to adopt easier standards in order to prevent people from having to spend all of their life savings. We didn’t want people to have to become destitute in order to get help.”

        Yes, this could be looked at in depth and as a political commentator, it would be great for you do to so. But instead, what we get from you is a Mark Levin-like rant about the Obama administration. You’re like the mirror opposite of liberals who blamed everything on President Bush.

      • Count d'Haricots (@Count_dHaricots) April 26, 2013 / 4:47 pm

        If I understand him correctly, all levels of government can engage in providing charity to others through taxpayer funds, except for the federal government. But to me that’s an artificial distinction.

        The Constitution is not artificial. Article 10 of the US Constitution allows the states or the people (respectively) the freedom to engage in charity using the peoples’ money, it also allows them to set up State Sponsored Religion and pay the Religion to provide the charity if they so desire.

        The Court actually struck down federal government taxpayer money for charity citing the Constitutional “General Welfare Clause” in 1936. and again in 1956. The use (or misuse) by the 20th Century Congresses was predicated on their ability to tax, which is Constitutional, citing the SCs decision thus; ” . . .the power of Congress to authorize expenditure of public moneys for public purposes is not limited by the direct grants of legislative power found in the Constitution.

        If that’s the standard, then it applies to President Bush as well. It’s his standard, not mine. But you see, he refuses to apply it equally, making him a hypocrite. I don’t hold Bush or Obama responsible for “EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE TAKING OFFICE,” as tired put it. That would be stupid.

        The fact is you don’t like it at all because it shows what a failure obAMATEUR really is. He is the food stamp pResident, the welfare pResident and the massive failure in every metric on the economy. Those are the facts and useful idiots such as yourself will follow him and mindless repeat his lies like good little lemmings.

But I sure you can separate your lips from his hind end long enough to regurgitate more mindless crap as before. You are to dumb to realize that obAMATEUR and his fellow leftists are urinating on your leg while telling you its raining and you are believing every word.

    Count, I didn’t say that she was employed by the state of Florida, nor did I imply it. The state provide her with funding, the reason being that the state believes it is in their economic interest to do so.” — Watson (emphasis mine)

    Since I have bigger fish to fry I thought I would drop in just to ask a question or two.

    Watson,
    What would you call a person that was funded by the State (taxpayer’s coffers) to promote an ideal that the State sees in its best interest (on behalf of th4e State)?

    A “consultant?”

    Count stated “The food bank is partially subsidized by the state of Florida, it does not state or imply that she is employed by Florida.

    Subsidized is a payment for expectant results–e.g. payment for services rendered. Kind of like jury duty so one can agree to disagree that a juror is or is not an employee but that is a civic duties and mandatory while the behavior of this person is completely volunteer in nature.

    Well, a subsidized person of volunteered employment, with consideration money is fungible (look at PP) pushing a pre-determined agenda seems like an “employee” without the need to cover them with “Obamacare.”

        Demographics? Did you read the article, neocon1? It’s about your neighbors and contemporaries.

    • watsonthethird April 26, 2013 / 1:08 pm

      db, we all agree that the state of Florida is funding the recruitment of its citizens into the SNAP program. Well, all of us except Cluster because it’s all President Obama’s doing. We all agree that Dillie Nerios is not an employee of the state of Florida. She works for a food bank that receives funding from the state of Florida for the purpose of recruiting Floridians to join the roles of SNAP.

      Count stated “The food bank is partially subsidized by the state of Florida, it does not state or imply that she is employed by Florida.” That is correct. I was merely pointing out that in my response to Cluster, I also did not state or imply that she is employed by Florida.

      As for what you call her technically, a consultant or something else… I don’t know. Does it really matter? She’s not an employee of the state. I guess you might say she is a contractor.

      Heck, I’m pretty sure Count works in local government–a school district as I recall–so he might have a better answer for you. I’ve never worked for the government myself, either directly as a government employee or in a business that contracts with the government. So I don’t know what they call them.

        Ninety Three Articles of Impeachment against Obama
        http://conservativepapers.com ^ | By PETER PATON

      • Count d'Haricots (@Count_dHaricots) April 26, 2013 / 4:17 pm

        we all agree that the state of Florida is funding the recruitment of its citizens into the SNAP program.

        No, we don’t “agree” with such a silly premise, in fact the state is prohibited by statute from funding such efforts through a third party and the food Bank is prohibited by statute from using state funds for that purpose.

        Since you don’t understand fund accounting, and I do, I’ll x-plain.

        The Food bank receives CORE funds from the state to facilitate operations; operations are clearly defined and preclude paying any consultant or employee or paying any individual or group to perform work in furtherance of recruitment for programs “not directly related to the operations” of the Food Bank.

        Signing people up for food stamps is not operational to the food bank. the food bank may use their own funds; enterprise or self-supporting, or donated funds but not state funds.

        The person from the article is neither a paid consultant to the state of Florida, nor an employee of the state of Florida and has only an ancillary connection to the taxpayers of the state of Florida, “technically” or otherwise.

        Yes, my salary is paid out of state funds, just like fireman, police, parks and recreation, lifeguards, highway patrol and all the administrative personnel in those respective fields.

        You got a problem with firemen?

      • watsonthethird April 26, 2013 / 9:37 pm

        Count, did I suggest that I had a problem with the fact that you work for the government? You seem pretty touchy about it. I said that because you do, you would have better insight into the relationship between, say, a food bank and state government.

        Guns save more lives than they take; prevent more injuries than they inflict
        * Guns used 2.5 million times a year in self-defense. Law-abiding citizens use guns to defend themselves against criminals as many as 2.5 million times every year — or about 6,850 times a day.

        1 This means that each year, firearms are used more than 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives.

        2
        * Of the 2.5 million times citizens use their guns to defend themselves every year, the overwhelming majority merely brandish their gun or fire a warning shot to scare off their attackers. Less than 8% of the time, a citizen will kill or wound his/her attacker

        see above forker

      • neocon01 April 26, 2013 / 4:40 pm

        Background
        Suicide occurs when a person ends his or her own
        life. It is the 11th leading cause of death among
        Americans, and every year more than 33,000
        people end their own lives. Suicide is found in
        every age, racial, and ethnic group to differing
        degrees
        (1).
        There are a number of factors that increase the
        likelihood a person will take his or her own life;
        one of these is abusing substances such as alcohol
        and drugs

        Alcohol and drug abuse are second
        only to depression and other mood disorders as
        the most frequent risk factors for suicidal behavior
        (2, 3). Alcohol and some drugs can result in a loss
        of inhibition, may increase impulsive behavior,
        can lead to changes in the brain that result in
        depression over time, and can be disruptive to
        relationships—resulting in alienation and a loss
        of social connection
        (4). Furthermore, excessive
        acute drug and/or alcohol ingestion could result in
        death. According to data from a recent National
        Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) report,
        in 2007 alcohol was a factor in approximately one-
        third of the reported suicides, and 62% of these
        decedents had a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of
        >0.08 g/dL at the time of death (5).

        not just clueless but 100% classless………

        And Barack Obama?

        The Barack Obama pResidential Library

        He rode a few cotton-candy words mainlined to Obama addicts in 2008 into the Oval Office: Hope, Change. Those two words will inflict visitors everywhere they stroll-despite the little-known fact that his own speechwriter cynically described these words, after Obama won, as so much fodder fed to the great unwashed.
        But since the library will clearly be immense — as a testament to Obama’s greatness — there will be plenty of space for further quotes. Here are some that can be carved in stone in a way that befits a man we were told was sort of a God.

        ● “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

        ● “I’m not interested in suburbs. Suburbs bore me.”

        ● “…so I know whose ass to kick” (regarding the Gulf oil spill)

        ● “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that. the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”

        ● Americans have become “a little soft…” a little bit lazy…” “have lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do things that built the Golden Gate Bridge” before he became president.

        ● “Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Stop complaining. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’.” (addressing a group of blacks decrying lack of support for their community.)

        ● The police “acted stupidly” and it is “just a fact” that African-Americans and Latinos are disproportionately stopped by police (weighing in on the arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.)

        ● Elections are tight when you have a “funny name” like Barack Obama and don’t “look like all those other presidents on dollar bills.”

        ● “Typical white person.”

        ● “They talk about me like a dog.” (because, after all, Americans are inspired by self-pitying presidents).

        ● “I won”

        ● Republicans are “bomb throwers” and “hostage takers” who sip Slurpees while driving the economy into the ditch; they will “have to sit in the back of the bus”. Republicans want to dig moats and fill them with alligators to kill Hispanics slipping across the border; they are “members of the Flat Earth Society.”

        ● “No, no. I have been practicing… I bowled a 129. It’s like — it was like Special Olympics, or something.” –making an offhand joke during an appearance on “The Tonight Show”, March 19, 2009

        ● “Fat Cats” “I’m standing between you and the pitchforks.”

        ● “I don’t want to quell anger… what I want to do is channel anger.”

        ● “You would think they’d be saying thank you” on Tea Party protesters who received tax cuts.

        ● “Companies like Solyndra are leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.”

        ● “You are the reason I ran for office.” while addressing the Occupy Wall Street movement.

        ● To Latno voters: ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.

        And my all-time favorite — so far:

        ● “Vote for Revenge”

        Let’s be reasonable here. I am sure that guns do prevent crimes in the United States and all of them don’t get covered by the local media but who that you know wouldn’t call the cops after having to draw a gun on someone trying to cause them harm? If half of that number 1.25 million fired at the perp those figures would end up in records with the local law enforcement somewhere if a tenth of that number hit the perp that would generate quite a bit of crime data for the FBI and the CDC. where are the 125,000 criminals that get shot every year?

  16. Jeremiah April 26, 2013 / 8:36 pm

    In light of all the statistics that there are regarding the use of guns, whether by criminals or by law-abiding citizens against assailants, the reason we have guns, and consequently a Second Amendment right to do so, remains thus…

    To protect ourselves from would-be tyrants in our government.

    Guns are the number one reason that stops communism from taking hold in our neighborhoods, they are the reason we remain a free people in America today. Despite the fact that many say Communism has won in America, we do not have Humvees going up and down our streets watching our every move, we are not being led like sheep with our every move, we can still sit in our easy chairs and armchair quarterback. But this freedom is not for long as long as, and if we as Conservatives continue to divide ourselves into groups along ideological lines concerning the issues. As long as there is this ideological rift between Conservatives, the would-be tyrants who control the strings of government and our institutions of education will continue to win the day, and get closer an closer to the Communist “utopia” that they dream for. And they will start selective breeding projects with the human species to create what was termed in Nazi Germany as the “Master Race.” Their (the Nazis’) hatred was for Jews, but in America today, the hatred is for White Christian Males, because so much propaganda has been put to influence the masses to believe that the White Christian Male is “inferior” and a “danger” to society…that Christianity is “bad” for America, and is to be hated despite any evidence to the contrary that would prove that Christianity is what made America the greatest super power in the world in the history of mankind.

    So, let’s step up to the plate, Conservative men and women … and defend our rights, before we lose them and our country loses its status as only super power in the world.

      Jeremiah I disagree. I have no problem with Christianity or any other religion for that matter. What I have an issue with, as anyone who believes in the Constitution should, is Christianity having any power over government or the people. Worship as you please and when you are done on your sabbath keep the message in your hearts but in public matters religion has no place.

      • Jeremiah April 27, 2013 / 5:26 pm

        Sarahbloch,

        You statement contradicts itself. First you say you disagree, but then go on to state that Christians should not share their faith with others, or if someone in a position of leadership who happens to be a Christian should not govern based upon their conscience which is directed by their faith.

        So really, you prove my point. Your view of Christianity is irrational, and hate-based.

    What a great big bucket of too bad – so sad

    Democratic lawmakers are worried about political fallout if the final implementation of Obamacare next year fails to hold down premium costs and only ends up confusing more Americans about what their options are.

    According to The New York Times, the Democrats raised concerns directly with administration officials at a recent luncheon meeting with Denis McDonough, the White House chief of staff.

    Their message? They are beginning to hear from constituents who are confused and worried about how the law will affect them and some lawmakers voiced concerns about programs within Obamacare that aren’t being run as planned. (oh, nooos, how can that be?)

    New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, told the Times she is “hearing from a lot of small businesses in New Hampshire that do now know how to comply with the law.” She said many are still “trying to figure out whether it would be in their interest to reduce employees’ hours” to avoid the law’s requirement that they cover health insurance premiums for full-time workers.
