President Obama is a Know-It-All

Posted by madjillmom on August 31, 2012

Thomas Sowell wrote a good column about Pres. Obama.  Take a few minutes to read it if you can.

Here is my favorite part:

Barack Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt. When he burst upon the national political scene as a presidential candidate in 2008, even some conservatives were impressed by his confidence.

But confident ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same confidence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster.

Often wrong, but never in doubt.  Wow, what a dead on critique of the smartest man in any room.

Navy Seal Writes Book about UBL Raid

Posted by madjillmom on August 31, 2012

The Administration is threatening a former Navy Seal who has written a book about the UBL raid.  The guy uses a pen name but has been outed and is now being threatened by Islamic extremists.  It is pretty amazing that the guys that were on the raid can’t tell the real story, but Obama’s closest advisers can leak it to the New York Times and Hollywood directors to help  punch up Obama’s macho credits.  I do not believe that the Navy Seal will give out classified information, but he is paying for his effort.  When will someone hold the President’s leakers responsible?  Not anytime soon. Eric Holder swept it under the rug and the non-independent council will slow crawl this investigation until it hardly matters.

Mitt’s Charity Begins at Home

Posted by madjillmom on August 31, 2012

The very touching stories of Mitt Romney’s kind and generous soul were wonderful last night. I believe he is not just a latter-day saint, but a modern-day saint also. I recently asked my sister if she knew the name of Obama’s half-sister. I don’t. She didn’t. I do not remember her ever being pointed out in all the footage we have seen of Obama.  While I do not think that he has to take care of all his half siblings on his father’s side, it is strange that we do not know anything about the one sibling he was raised with.  I haven’t ever read Obama’s biographies with his composite girlfriends and family.  But one quote I have heard is about Obama standing by while his mother fought with her insurance company about some treatment for breast cancer.  At the time, Obama was a grown man and a lawyer.  Why wasn’t he making the call for his mother?  Did he write letters appealing whatever ruling the evil insurance company made?  I doubt it.Pres. Obama is a distant kind of guy. Not what I would call caring in the usual sense.  Could someone step forward and give a wonderful story about Obama the man going above and beyond to help someone?  No, I do not think so.

In Obama’s world, the government is the helping hand, the source of benefits, the saint provided courtesy of the 50% of Americans who do pay taxes. In Mitt’s world, the job is up to the people of your church, the people you work with, the people of your community. Mitt must have a heart of gold.

Mitt’s Speech

Posted by madjillmom on August 30, 2012

Tonight, Mitt Romney is giving his acceptance speech. Here is a little of what I would like to hear:

If you want a celebrity President, pick the other guy. If you want the White House to host really cool parties featuring really cool bands, pick the other guy. If you are woman who wants to be dependent on the government for all your life, pick the other guy. If you want someone who the celebrities love, pick the other guy. If you are only concerned about what government can give you, the other guy is your man. If you think being cool is really the coolest thing, pick the other guy. He will hand out benefits until he can’t borrow one more cent. If you think a weak America is good for the world, vote for the other guy. Putin, Iran, North Korea, and Hugo Chavez want you to vote for Obama.

If you are interested in results, not broken promises, vote for me. If you have children or grandchildren and want them to have a decent chance to succeed, vote for me. If you think we should have a very strong military, vote for me. If you think we are oppressed by too many rules and regulations, vote for me. If you work hard, and play by the rules but can’t get ahead, vote for me. If you went in debt for college but can’t get a decent job, vote for me. If you want things fixed, not kicked down the road, vote for me.

It won’t be easy. America needs strong medicine. It won’t taste good. I will tell you the truth, I will work to make things better. I will work to make us safe. I will not lead from behind. I will not apologize for being successful. I will not apologize for America’s strength. I will work to make America stronger. The world needs a strong America.

There are strong headwinds. Another recession is baked into the cake already. The world is full of people who wish us harm, who do not want a strong America. If we don’t work to make things better right now, it will be too late. Paul Ryan and I aren’t smooth talkers, we are doers. We can fix this economy.

Democrat Convention Hosts Muslim Shindig

Posted by madjillmom on August 27, 2012

I am not at all certain what a Jumah is.  I saw this report on Gateway Pundit and started trying to figure out what it is.  It is a congregational prayer service that might be attended by 20,000 Muslims.  It is sponsored by BIMA, the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs. One write-up says that there might be 20,000 Muslims in attendance.

What exactly are indigenous Muslims?  Indigenous is used as native, original, or naturally occurring as we refer to American Indians.  Muslims are not indigenous to America.  I looked at the BIMA website.  This is their mission statement:

THE BUREAU OF INDEGENOUS MUSLIM AFFAIRS (BIMA) IS A NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION SEEKING STATUS WITH THE UNITED NATIONS AS A NON GOVERMENTAL ORGANIZATION (NGO). BIMA WAS FOUNDED IN 1992 BY THE LATE HAJJ HESHAAM JAABER. THE OBJECTIVE OF BIMA IS TO PROVIDE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO INDIGENOUS MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

(Please note misspellings are on the original website.  I copied and pasted the statement.)

I can’t really figure this out.  It seems like a religious group that wants to use their might to help those of their tribe under their own rules and ideology.  Not like the crazy-ass Catholics who open their hospitals to all faiths who are now being required to subject themselves to mandates from Obamacare to hand out contraceptives. Please note that the DNC turned down an offer from Cardinal Dolan to pray at the DNC.

I doubt that the crowd will be 20,000.  What if the Mormons held a congregational prayer meeting at the Republican National Convention and 20,000 Mormons showed up.  The press would go crazy.

Obama Says “Romney and Ryan are Extremists”

Posted by madjillmom on August 27, 2012

PresBO is very comfortable throwing around the term extremist.  His minions are using extreme and extremist with every breath. It is pretty interesting that a man who called the Ft. Hood massacre mere “work place violence” is so able to see extremism and call it so.  He is unable to see extremists in Major Nidal Hassan or domestic terrorist/neighbor/fellow traveler Bill Ayers, or the right Reverend Wright whose church he attended for 20 years.  Yet, the specter of these two accomplished men, Gov. Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan, causes Barack and Biden to run from channel to channel yelling “EXTREMIST”!

Extreme is what this current path is.  We write “disability”checks to able-bodied fat men who spend their time being overweight babies in diapers in giant baby beds constructed by the fat men themselves. We pass 2700 page bills that no one can decipher that will control healthcare in this country. That same bill results in 12,000 pages of regulations that no one can understand. We steal from our children and give the money to green energy companies with no real prospect of surviving, with red flags all through their financials. Our bloated government lends money to friends of Biden to open a luxury car dealership in the Ukraine. We have handed out welfare to generations that now have no working role models in their lives. We encourage young people to go into debt for a college degree and then take away any hope of a good job and a better life than their parents. This is the extreme insanity that is our current government.

Yes, it is extreme to try to live within our means. Yes, it is extreme to be business friendly. Yes, it is extreme to keep a strong military in a world where there is Russia, China, Iran, Islamic Extremism and North Korea. Yes, these two men are pretty scary if you want a weakened America and a future like Greece.

If Romney and Ryan are extremists, then bring them on.  We need extreme to fix this mess.

Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns

Posted by madjillmom on August 21, 2012

Gen. Dempsey’s plane hit at Bagram Airbase. Afghanistan War is going badly. We need to see Mitt Romney’s tax returns.

Several towns and cities are declaring bankruptcy. We must see Romney’s tax returns.

Sequestration of the military budget will kill over a million jobs in the private sector. We must have access to Mitt Romney’s tax returns. He could have a Swiss bank account.

GM is a zombie and is going bankrupt again. Mitt Romney might not have paid enough in taxes.

Obama didn’t make the call to kill bin Laden. He was pushed by Hillary and Panetta, who had to go around Valerie Jarrett. Oh, my goodness, Mitt Romney is a rich guy.

Someone in the Obama administration is leaking secrets. Obama is offended that someone might accuse his administration of leaking for politics. Mitt Romney isn’t releasing 12 years of taxes.

Drought is hammering ranchers, farmers, and consumers. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan don’t pay enough in taxes.

Obama has softball interviews with People and Us Weekly type publications. Tells us how concerned he is that Mitt Romney is a rich guy who doesn’t pay his share.

Gas prices going up again. Mitt Romney is only revealing two years of income tax.

Unemployment went up in 44 states last month.  Mitt Romney is a rich guy who may have an offshore account, and who doesn’t pay his share.

Afghanistan is a Mess – Obama Might Make a Phone Call

Posted by madjillmom on August 21, 2012

Things in Afghanistan are going from terrible to “almost on Obama’s radar”. Two weeks ago, high level personnel were killed in an attack not mentioned in the press. Last week, another helicopter downed, too many killed. There was a passing reference in the news. Now, General Dempsey’s plane was hit at Bagram. Minor ripples in Obamaworld. 40 killed by those we are “training”. Things are going great. The weak surge has surged, the numbers of troops are reduced, the numbers of casualties goes up. The news isn’t interested. Obama isn’t interested. I am about to have our three sons in the military. Two are already in the Army, and our second son is joining the Air Force next week. We take him to Basic on Monday. Our oldest will probably deploy to Afghanistan next May or June. Goody. I know two young men who are deployed now and two more who will deploy in November. How much longer will this half-assed war continue? Afghanistan can’t be fixed. Obama doesn’t care. He is too busy running for a second term. He doesn’t have enough time to play golf and concern himself with gutting the military by sequestration.

US Taxpayer’s Fund Upscale Car Lot in Ukraine

Posted by madjillmom on August 17, 2012

The Daily Caller has a story on this.

Yes, we evidently have so much money that we can lend money to an American Car Dealer to open an upscale car lot in the Ukraine. This is accomplished under a loan program that is supposed to result in some jobs and help for the car manufacturers. We all know the car companies and unemployed need jobs and investment. Unfortunately, the car companies aren’t American and the jobs are in the Ukraine. We are talking $20 million. Oh, did I mention that the guy who gets this loan is a good friend of Joe Biden and has given lots of cash to the Obama/Biden campaigns. Why are we bankrupting our children so the rich in the Ukraine can buy Porsches and Land Rovers?

Obama’s Dream Act Fiat and the Money

Posted by madjillmom on August 16, 2012

Yesterday was the first day that young illegals could apply for the two-year program of work permits given out by Obama for political graft.  The original figure for those eligible was 800,000, then 1.4 million, and is now hovering around 2 million.  I doubt we will hear how many apply for the graft.  Whatever the amount or applications, the $500 charge will not be able to provide real oversight for the documentation the will be “required” for proof of residency.  The backlog of cases will cause severe delays in the actual processing of these cases.  Soon, there will be an announcement that the program is so popular that the initial applicants will be given work permits up front, before verification, because the process will take so long that this is the only thing that can be done.  By the way, what government agency is handling this process? How many people have they hired? For that matter, how is the backlog of legal immigration coming along?

Meanwhile, this give-away by PresBO will spawn a whole new group of flea market vendors selling fake High School transcripts and rent receipts and such as official documentation for the program give-away   Then just like the IRS gives tax refunds for special give-aways to prisoners and such, the documents will be accepted and not verified.  Just like the IRS took thousands of applications for Federal ID numbers from the same address without any alarm bells going off.

Also, Obama is giving out grants to community programs like ACORN to help with the process. These organizations will produce lots more documentation just like ACORN did to help with voter fraud.  They will probably be a one stop shop for documentation and registration.  All courtesy of the taxpayer’s dime.
