Goverment Spending, Welfare and History

What did Obama,  his experts and his liberal economist learn from History this year?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, 
  public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be 
  tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be 
  curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt.  People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." -   

                    Cicero,  55 BC

Is it really that hard for them to understand?
Or, do they fully understand and have a plan of their own? What could that plan be???

Merry Christmas

"To the distinguished Character of Patriot, it should be our highest Glory to add the more distinguished Character of Christian. The signal Instances of providential Goodness which we have experienced and which have now almost crowned our labours with complete Success, demand from us in a peculiar manner the warmest returns of Gratitude and Piety to the Supreme Author of all Good." 
--George Washington

  To my readers of faiths other than Christianity, I hope that you understand that we were a nation founded in the Christian faith. History of those men serves to deepen your understanding of how our faith formed this great Nation, and the bring to light the faith of so many of our founding fathers. 

May God fill your life and guild our nation!

Have a great and safe year!

The Mad American.

The Worlds Largest Army

What is the world's largest
army? America's hunters!

I don't spend as much time hunting as I used to but, I still own and know how to use my hunting rifles.
Just pay attention to these quickly gathered numbers in a hand full of States.
It leads to a striking conclusion!
The state of Wisconsin has gone an entire deer hunting season without
someone getting killed. That's
great. There were over 600,000 hunters.
Allow me to restate that number. Over
the last two months, the eighth
largest army in the world
- more men under
arms than Iran; more than France
and Germany combined - deployed to the woods of a single American state.
But that pales in comparison to the 750,000 who are in the woods of
Pennsylvania. Michigan's 700,000 hunters have now returned home.
Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia, and it is literally the
case that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest
army in the world.
America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown
Hunting -- it's not just a way to fill
the freezer. It's a matter of national security!
"That's why all enemies foreign and domestic want
to see us disarmed."

And, Liberals don't hunt, Moderates can't shoot straight, so it's;
only Conservatives that protect this nation!

Retired is GREAT!

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break'? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, 'I ♥ Obama.' I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.

     Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous

failed attempts at government.  He understood actual history, the

nature of God, his laws and the nature of man.  That happens to be way

more than what most understand today.  Jefferson really knew his

stuff.  A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

     John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of

the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this

statement: "This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever

to gather at one time in the White House with the
 exception of when

Thomas Jefferson dined alone."

 “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,

we shall become as corrupt as  Europe.”  -- Thomas Jefferson

 “The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those

who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

   -- Thomas Jefferson

  “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it

goes.  A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of

the world.”

    -- Thomas Jefferson

  “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the

government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of

taking care of them.”  -- Thomas Jefferson

  “My reading of history convinces me that most bad government

results from too much government.”  -- Thomas Jefferson

  “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
  -- Thomas 


  “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep

and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against

tyranny in government.”

    -- Thomas Jefferson

  “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the

blood of patriots and tyrants.”  -- Thomas Jefferson

  “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of

ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

    -- Thomas Jefferson

  Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

   “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our

liberties than standing armies.  If the American people ever allow

private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by

inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will

grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property -

until their children wake-up
 homeless on the continent their fathers



    Will you help get this out to everyone!!!

MA addresses a liberals letter

""You cannot strenghten the weak by weaking the strong" Honest Ab"

A rising tide lifts all boats!

I want no one weak--the goal, dear one, is to strenghten our country![MA]  People do this, not Government

I don't know what business you are in, but I think I heard you sell farm/ranch equipment.  Well, if your neighbors are not successful, then they won't be able to buy new tractors.  If you are in the cattle business, you need consumers to purchase your product. [MA] I Know a little about my business, but thank you for your input, you make my whole point for this blog Your writings seem to suggest that you think success and policy should be based on what is best for YOU...ME, ME, ME...[MA] No one can read that into what I say, or write about in my blog. I will always take care of myself and not rely on what you or government can do for me that is what you are worried about.   Let there be no mistake, I'll defend my family and my country to end of my days[MA]  I understand your thoughts but to defend your country you need to go back and read what made your country great and, what is was that the founding fathers feared--but somehow through spending time with my grandparents, I have a deep, and abiding love for my fellow man.[MA]  I love all people and wish only the best for them. That is why a government nanny state is soooo appalling to me. It destroys people, always has, always will  We am not in this world alone.  I need my country as much as it needs me to be productive, healthy and CONTRIBUTING (which means paying my fair share of taxes and no more.) [MA] But you think that financially successful people owe more that you or me?  I think the corporations that were too big to fail were bailed out[MA]  That is to bad. No one and nothing in this world is to big to fail…just a fact. The other part is that those business or governments fail for a reason. GM should have gone under and others would have learned from those mistakes and risen to take their place. The government (in it’s over stepping) demonstrated that they (large evil money makers) don’t need to show responsibility…bad, very bad idea to promote --and I actually thought that had we not done that, then the country would be in a depression.[MA]  almost 10% unemployment, real unemployment at just under 20%, currency that is lacking in value, government at the brink of bankruptcy, weak world presents and you think this is a better path? The people who lived through a real deep depression understood personal responsibility. We have very little of that now. People have been conditioned to rely on the government and not their own actions It was tough and I don't like the deficit and I don't like paying more taxes than my share. [MA] no one does. But what is your share? How much does the government need to operate? What is the basic responsibility of government? Is it to regulated school bake sales? To sue a state for trying to protect its boarders? Is it to provide retirement and health care for its citizens? Is it to make certain meats are illegal to eat? (yes, you can go to jail for eating horse meat, even if it’s a common dish in Europe. Because it is so healthily, it was a staple for our military for years, it’s just not politically correct now days. I wonder, what is next?) Is it to tell us what car to drive or light bulb to use? Is it to condone, promote and fund killing of unborn children?  Is it to take 50% of your personal wealth when you die? Or is it to regulate news (freedom of speech act) What is the role of Government? Funny, with all the information we have available to us, many people do not know what the views of the founders of this nation said about the role of government. They were not so concerned about what a big government could do for you, but what it would do to you! However, now that the corporations [MA] Nice to hear all is well with them now are strong again as evidenced by the stock market and the salaries they are paying their CEOs,[MA]  Only a liberal would consider a salary as a means to measure a company’s solvency. Perhaps it shows something very different?   then now is the time for them to step up and pay their fair share of taxes.[MA]  Ha ha, what is their fair share? Who says what a fair share is? If we all and I mean every American paid 10% in taxes, would this not be fair?  Remember, by eliminating the top 1% tax cut approved during Bush's time, will still leave these 1% with lower taxes then when Reagan was in the White House. [MA] Why would that bother you and what does that have to do with fairness?   You can't have your cake and eat it too,[MA]  What cake??? I will make my own cake and eat it anytime I please thank you. I don’t need the Government giving me cake, telling when, or how much of, or what kind I can eat if you are serious about the deficit--and you should be--then the revenue and the expense side have to be addresssed.  Just like your home budget. [MA] I pretty much make a set amount and I don’t see that changing very soon so, I keep my spending in line with my income. This is very much different than the government that will not be responsible about its spending and will raise its income by raising taxes on those who are taking responsibility with their personal spending. And, do so in very hard economic times.  I can't wait to see how the John Boehner plans to cut spending.  I'll hope he means it, because it does need to happen. [MA] Me too, but with any cuts (just like not going out to dinner as often) people will complain…because they have forgot how to cook for themselves Take that tea and steep it.[Bruce]  Hmmm, good tea today

Middle Class Declares War on the Job Makers

In the Video below, Senator Bernie Sanders points out what is wrong with America today!
This Senator points out what a moderate, independent Senator really is. He and others like him are Socialist pure and simple.
Socialism is an economic and political theory advocating public or common ownership and cooperative management of the means of production and allocation of resources

This man, this United States Senator is promoting class warfare. He states that Millionaires are waging a war against the middle case. He has no idea that it is the spending on goods, that the middle class (you and me) want, that makes men and women rich that have the foresight to see and fulfill those needs.
He speaks of people wanting more and more…if that is someone’s goal and they achieve this by providing a service, why would anyone begrudge them? Why does this man and other liberals think a successful person owes other citizens or the government anything extra over other citizens? What business of our government is this? NONE!

In his speech below he states that America has the most unequal distribution of wealth of any country.  This statement proves his mindset, he does not believe in the principles that this country was founded on. No where do the fathers address distributing wealth. What they did express great fear over, was a government that would interfere with free enterprise and the citizens ability to pursue their dreams.
He speaks of greed as an issue we (the government) must deal with. Free markets and competition will deal with greed, not the government. When greed takes over a person or business, both will fail in due time, if it's not bailed out by the government! It is the natural nature of things and history proves this every time.
He speaks of the bailouts, of estate taxes, and acts like it is the Governments money when refereeing to tax revenue. IT IS NOT! IT’S YOUR MONEY AND MINE!
The Government deficit problem is not one of incoming revenue but of out of control and unsustainable spending!
He complains about all the jobs going to China and blames this on greed. Never do they (Liberals, Moderates, Socialists) stop to think that the cost of doing business and the tax rates implemented by people like him, have caused business to move over seas and take jobs with them! Are Liberals just that stupid or blinded by hatred of success people? Have they been wrong at some point in their lives? Have they had secret dreams of being a successful business person and failed, or never tried because it was too risky or hard?
He goes on to blame the deficit on the wars…(above all, one job the government has, and that is to protect its citizens. We were attacked on 9-11, viewed as worst than Pearl Harbor)  tax breaks for the wealthy and bailouts. It is an undeniable fact that the more money you make, the more you pay in taxes and it should not be because your rate in any different from mine! A flat rate across the board would be best. Have everyone write a check to the IRS at the end of the year, EVERYONE! 10% of what you take home or net. People making $500 a month need to be vested in America and pay taxes also. THIS WOULD BE THE MOST FAIR WAY and TAKE AWAY GOVERNMENT CONTROL!
This flake…at the end of his class warfare speech, attacks Republicans for any attempt to cut spending. He does not offer where to make cuts, he does not offer any sensible reductions, only attacks and distorts conservative views on health care, children and school programs.
He speaks of Greed, the Greed that has America in trouble is GOVERNMENT GREED!

Facts about Bernie;

He has never had a real job. He has always been on some type of government employment! 
He has never created a Job, never produced anything of value or met a payroll!

Bernie Sanders was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006 after serving 16 years in the House of Representatives. He is the longest serving independent member of Congress in American history. Born in 1941 in Brooklyn, Bernie was the younger of two sons in a modest-income family. After graduation from the University of Chicago in 1964, he moved to Vermont. Early in his career, Sanders was director of the American People’s Historical Society. Elected Mayor of Burlington by 10 votes in 1981, he served four terms. Before his 1990 election as Vermont's at-large member in Congress, Sanders lectured at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and at Hamilton College in upstate New York

It is these types of idiots that have no idea about business and believe that they (the Government) need to take care of  people. He is a fool and has no idea what the function of Government is meant to be.
He and others like him make a great case for strict term limits!

How can you describe this Senator? Make your comments below!

By the way, did you see how Obama has addressed the price of fuel that powers this nation and is one of the highest cost of producing goods in the USA?
He has stopped ALL off shore drilling! Putting more Americans out of work and making our Nation more dependent on foreign oil from Muslim counties.

Gun owner arrested, criminal or patriot?

Unbelievable, click on the link below;

N.J. Man in Prison for Buying Guns — Legally

Very good article, of course from a Marine !!!!

      As the Supreme Court hears arguments for and against the Chicago, IL Gun Ban, I offer you another stellar example of a letter (written by a Marine),  that places the proper perspective on what a gun means to a civilized society.

           Interesting take and one you don't hear much. . . . . .
Read this eloquent and profound letter and pay close attention to the last paragraph of the letter....

        "The Gun Is Civilization" by Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)

      Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force.
      If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force.
      Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.

      In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion.
      Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

      When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force.
      You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

      The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

      There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations.
      These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job.
       That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.

        People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

        Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury.
        This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

         People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst.
         The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

          The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter.
          It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.

          When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone.
          The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.
           It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

            By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret.)

So the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally armed and can only be persuaded, never forced.

Faith and our Nation

The Preamble of the Constitution reads:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility; provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
From the very beginning of our nation, faith and freedom were deeply intertwined. Liberty strengthened faith, allowing it to freely express its beliefs; pursue its divine mission. But faith was necessary for liberty - not only does it shape moral character; it builds the moral fiber necessary for us to be free.
The inclusion of the phrase “blessings of liberty” in the preamble of the Constitution appropriately sets the stage for the structure of government our Founders envisioned. Man is the recipient of liberty; he does not grant it. It is through Constitutional checks and balances of government and the rule of law, however, that man is tasked with protecting and defending the “blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity.” 

President George Washington said, it is “our duty as a people, with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God and to implore Him to continue and confirm the blessings we experience.”
1.As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view . it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!
2.As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.
3.As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!
4.There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.
5.James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement:
a. "We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."
6.Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said:
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".
7.Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.
8.Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.
9.Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law. an oligarchy,
the rule of few, over many.
10.     The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
"Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."

It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, it is very hard to understand why there is such a mess about having the Ten Commandments on display or "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the other 14% to Sit Down and SHUT UP!!!

But, Obama says that now (under his rule) we are no longer a Christian nation.

Send him and the other left wing wackos an everlasting message (a little more clear than the 2010 vote, where somehow they missed it)
