My personal goals for 2011 that most of you could care less about

Ok.  I am pretty certain my second most important goal in 2011 is going to be expanding my civil rights work to the international scene.  Running for United States Congress, international relations seemed to be an interesting topic for me to study and try to understand better.

And like most ignorant and uneducated Americans on international issues, having been forced to endure our domestic educational system that unduly spends way too much time focused on European culture, typically leaves most of Americans pretty ignorant related to cultures around the entire world. 

For example, many of us Americans know very little about our neighors to the north and south of the United States. Why?  Was ignorance by our public educational systems done on purpose?  Rhetorically, why all this focus on European culture. 

Why are most of us educated in America so naive about other nations?  I just wonder.  Was this done intentionally?   No wonder when we travel abroad as I  intend to do more ofiten going forward, will I be one of those arrogant and uninformed Americans?  Will I wear blinders to the rest of the world's culture and advancements that are not related to Europe? 

Or instead, will I view the international community looking for what they do better than what we do in America?  I hope I am able to see what other nations are doing better than we are.  I look forward to cultural enlightenment as I engage people from foreign nations in the cosmopolitain areas of Florida where I now reside. 

To me, I find other cultures from other nations interesting. Hence, which explains why one of the graduate classes I was going  to take at Harvard was anthropology.  The other class I was scheduled to take in 2006 was advanced science fiction.

So, two of my primary goals for 2011 is to further my understanding related to the cultures of people worldwide.  So, this continues my education into international affairs, foreign countries and their respective cultures.  At my age, I wonder why here in America, there is this undue focus on Europe, in complete oblivion to the rest of the world.  I intend to spend some time in 2011 touring areas outside of the United States in 2011.  Travel-a good thing for a person that wants to continue their understanding of the interelationships with the cultures of many nations. 

The second goal is a two-parter.  One, stop wasting so much time on Facebook.  As well as stop wasting so much time blogging here.  My page count in print of what I have blogged here is over 5000 pages. I could have used all that blog time to write several books.  So, stop Facebooking and stop blogging so much, I am finally able to finish writing my novel started in 2004, titled Changing Asylums, seems like a rational and a logical goal for 2011. 

I am tired of telling myself to stay focused on writing this stupid novel and finishing that stupid book that focuses on sci-fi novel incorporating the best I can understand related to politics, philosophy, religion, mysticism, culture and the impact of technology on all of us going forward; as well as my own unique perceptions of what is important to further the public interest. 

In ending, I understand most of my readers could care less about my goals.  But I am pretty certain politically, I am dead.   I doubt at this juncture I am going to run for United States Congress in 2012.  I might.  But a lot would have to happen to make this a goal for 2011 and 2012. 

I will continue to stay connnected and do some advocacy work in Florida.  I will continue to do what I can for the migrant farm workers in Immokalee, Florida related to improving their deplorable living conditions; as well as do what I can to stop human trafficking in southern Florida. 

After I finish this tax appeal case for Kansans, Kansas can kiss my ass.  I have spent enough time and money advocating for Kansans.  That is going to end in 2011.  Hopefully, someone else steps forward and fills my shoes in Kansas.  A very backwards and overly conservative state I am glad I no longer reside in. 

I will find with the passage of time, a lot of the problems with bureaucracy in Florida, similar to Kansas.  And that is why I am going to start spending more of my time moving around the planet earth as I expand some of my productive work efforts to the international level.  Why not is the imperative question I find myself facing.

On a personal level, it seems important as I get older to get connected.  That should be my most important or No. 1 goal for 2011. 

I am really tired of being single for the last two decades.  It is time for me to get connected and finally make a commitment to another person.  So what could be a more important goal that choosing another human being I want to spend the rest of my life with. 

That really should be my No. 1 goal in 2011.  And so I think that is what I will do in 2011.  Make a commitment to another human being.  The more important question is, why not?

Yecck-Once again, making plans for the upcoming year!

Now that the Christmas holiday is over, many of us will make those next year plans shortly before the ball drops to ring in 2011.  Yecch. 

It is that time when we collectively and individually decide why next year, starting in a few days, we all suddenly will finally become better human beings than we were this year. 

However, I am and remain a contrarian.  I did a lot of really cool things for many people in 2010.  So, before I start focusing on my future, it seems like a better idea to focus on what I tried to accomplish, or did accomplish, in 2010.

Naturally, I spent a lot of time in 2010 running for United States Congress.  This required me to get better at listening to both voters and non-voters vent their frustrations with all levels of government-from the federal down to the local level. 

I argued and continue to argue for real estate property tax reform specifically in Kansas.  My appellate brief will be filed via mail on January 3.  I am merely one step from my 10th attempt to be docketed with the United States Supreme Court.

In 2010, I also argued in Washingto DC on behalf of our nation's veterans right to a cost recovery. A decision related to that case should be coming out shortly in 2011. I visited the White House and Obama would not meet with  me.  The Commission of the IRS refuses to process my federal homebuyer tax credit so soon, he is going to get sued by me in my first federal court in Florida here in early 2011. 

In 2010, I listened to the Tea Party patriots whom are like me-sick and tired of yahoo politicians intent on getting more of our money regardless of how our United States Constitution clearly and loudly was crafted based on the rights of the individual.  Not to mention our founding fathers clearly were afraid of progressive socialism and big brother kind of government.

In 2010, I got to meet with Sarah Palin and members of her family in May. In January, I got my Oz out of Kansas and moved to Florida. Some groups in Florida want me to run for Congress in the 14th District in 2012.. Maybe. Now that I think about it in reflection, 2010 was a very big year for me. 2011 however looks even better.

However from a broad and overiding principal that guides my conduct, acts and omissions, here in the United States, too few of us remember the clear and intentional  writing of our United States Constitution's founding fathers.  And far too many have succumbed to each new generation of those intent on their own self-interest, forcing politicans to creating and  focusing on a welfare nation as envisioned by the enemy of the people, progressive socialist FDR. 

And here once again in 2011, we are in a similar situation as faced during the Great Depression.  High rates of unemployment, plenty of corporate welfare, huge budget deficits, and yahoo politicans creating new ways to tax the lives out of us by forcing us to find bigger and worse governments.

Not only do we have to deal with "too big to fail" entities like banks, mortgage companies, Government Motors, and the horrors related to death panels and the rationing of health care, we also deal with the
de-industrialization of American manufacturing, we also get to deal with declining wages, fewer job choices as we globalize and ship jobs all over the world, leaving the worst jobs here domestically almost leading to the total elimination of the middle class.  At several levels. 

Americans are looking at real losses to their dreams of retirement and the elimination of any wealth many relied on in, by investing their funds in home equity.  So, despite all this negativism, we still have to try our best to be as optimistic as much as possible despite the very real fact we as a nation, we the people are in a deep world of shit. 

While our country continues to decline into a nation where the biggest employer is the federal, state county and local governments, we as a nation remain in deep trouble.  The ugly and very real possibility of total control over our lives and our property will remain a growing and festering sore on our collective and individual souls as big government from federal to the local level, remains a huge problem here in the United States. If this trend to deficit spending, trade deficits, doling out trillions of dollars not backed by anything but empty promises, our nation will soon move into a total and complete economic collapse. 

But at least the good news going forward is that I am not going to endure this nonsense much longer. Matter of fact, I do not have that much longer to live or endure the tenacles of the beast strangling the rights of individuals much longer. 

Further, I am personally going to focus more and more, on the world from an international  perspective.  In 2011, I intend to broaden what I see is my goal.  To make this planet a better place going forward, regardless of the state of our many and varied governments intent on taking control over many parts of our lives.  These many governments here domestically can merely kiss my ass in 2011. 

Remember, we the people are still in charge.  Not the government.  We if we continue as a nation to focus only on our self-interest, rather than a dual focus and balancing on both our national and self-interest, we as a nation will continue to decline with a rapid acceleration. 

And hopefully both in 2011 and again in 2012, we the people make certain those political yahoos that like big governments, that keep reaching into our and my pockets for both our property and our labor, it is our duty to ensure they are not going to get those things.   

We get it.  So do many of the patriots out there that love our United States Constitution as written.  Not interpreted by government bureaucrats and corrupt corporations.  We the people, we are in charge.  And if that leds to blood in the streets in America . . . we the people will make that happen also.  Because we the people of the United States of America do not like living in a deep world of progressive socialism.  

We Americans like our United States Constitution as written. 

Our United States Constitution as written by our founding fathers with clarity, focus, purpose and intent, understood that the strength of our nation is and must remain based on the strength of the individual-not the size of an ever-growing federal government that tries to sweep our country further and further into a welfare state.  So that sums up my 2011 New Year's resolution. 

Sounds almost the same as my resolutions I chose when I decided to run for United States Congress in 2004.  The creep of progressive socialism continues to spread its tenacles. 

And we the people, here in the United States, remain in a deep world of shit.

Three Wise Men spotted neared the Leavenworth Bridge

I spotted three wise men assisting a stranded motorist near the Leavenworth Bridge as I was returning to my birthplace, Atchison Kansas to spend\some of the holiday season with both my mother and brother.  Although my first choice would have to been to stay in sunny Florida and spend more time with my significant other. 

Regardless, these three wise men were pushing a stranded Ford F-150 motorist because obviously he had ran out of gas on MO Hwy 45 right after passing over the Missouri River bridge into the dreaded state of Missouri, enemy terrority to us Kansans. Now, thise three wise men kindness and acts of assisting another meant something personal to me. 

I watched from the stop sign on the exit ramp coming off I-635.  Why would these three men get out of their vehicles in the middle of a harsh and cold day on a Monday in a  harsh December winter merely to be assistive and help push this stranded Ford truck and its driver about a quarter of mile to a nearby gas station?

 Now what kind of people do things like this? 

And why do we so often see others helping others during the holiday season?  Beats me.  X-mas makes all of us all try our best to think of others. Instead of merely ourselves.

These three fellows clearly must have been the three wise men.  They must have been lost because there was no stable with Jesus anywhere nearby.   And all of Kansans know that even Jesus would not want to be born in some stable anywhere near the state of Missouri. 

Regardless, I am digressing in trash-talking about Missouri.  I must stay focused here on the topic. 

Why were these three men wise?

Because they have learned deep inside, that even in the horrible state of Missouri, the key to their heart and soul is helping others; instead of only focusing on their own self-interest.  To unselfishly give of their minds, hearts and bodies.  And their reward? 

Well, there are several.  Serenity, happiness, compassion and love for their fellow citizens of the planet earth.  Each time, one of us unselfishly helps another, we merely are climbing one more step closer to heaven.  For me personally, it sure seems this stairway to heaven is one long staircase. 

Regardless, I hope someday all of can proclaim someday to understand the ideas and wisdom related to being a good human, Christian or otherwise--to be as wise as these three individuals were. 

I am absolutely certain my own personal happiness depends on what I do and care about others. Maybe someday I will even like people from Missouri.  But that is going to take a few more decades.  Regardless of people from Missouri being irriating to me, I am still able to smile a lot more often as I age.  And not just during the holidays either. 

In retrospect, seeing their unselfish act, I found myself needing to follow these individuals clear to the gas station.  So in turn, I could do my part and repay them for their kindness to another.  So, I gave them a ride back to their respective vehicles and assured them they would certainly be blessed over the holidays.

I in turn was also blessed with an opportunity, just as hey were given.  And that folks, makes those of us that can see clearly, opportunities wherever we are, to help others is really helping ourselves be worth our time here on the planet earth.. 

Have a great holiday season.  That is my story related to seeing the three wise men near the Leavenworth Bridge. 

Peace. For now.  Even to the people of Missouri. 

But only until KU beats the crap out of MU again in basketball. 

Signing out.

Ben "what me worry" Bernake and the Fed Reserve screw we, the people some more!

Well, once again, the Federal Reserve has its head buried in the sand screwing us, we the people again today by leaving interest rates artificially as low they can go casting aside and throwing out the long held tradition of a free market economy. 

Bernake  is not fooling anyone by his thin plan to keep interest rates artifically low solely for the purposes of keeping payments on the federal debt as low as possible.  Government anf big  corporations win again; while the nation, our economic prosperity and we the people lose again.

Raise the freaking interest rates so we can have an economic recovery, banks and corporation stop hoarding funds and issuing cheap bonds yielding less than one per cent. 

As we have stated here on this blog, there will be no economic recovery by this assine theories guiding the Federal Reserve, the fourth and unlawful branch of the government. 

Fire the Federal Reserve.  They are the problem with their micromanaging the US economy causing all these huge economic swings we have had to endure and keep having to tolerate their "silly theories" for far too long.

Smackdown on the unconstitutional Obama Health Ins. scheme

The scheme to force people to obtain health insurance was found to be unconstitutional for good reason.  It was unconstitutional.

So another progressive socialist tax scheme bites the dust.

Warning: Be wary of Tax Reform Suggestions Coming Out of DC

Whenever yahoo politicans start having problems funding their pork barrel legislation or need a new scheme to get more of the middle class tax dollars, they start talking about major reforms to the tax code.  Naturally, when this happens, who gets screwed the most?

Middle Class America and the Poor.  Since these political yahoos in DC want to keep the campaign coffers full from the rich contributors, most discussion related to tax reform to date has been regressive tax reform proposals.  Instead of progressive tax reform.  So be wary of idiotic ideas coming out of Washington related to tax reform schemes like the Flat, Fair or Consumption Tax.

The entire funding of the federal government continues to impose regressive consumption taxes on the public impacting the middle and lower classes, in quite a subtle manner.  Like most governments that insist they get bigger, the yahoo politicans keep having to get more creative in coming up with tax schemes.

We witnessed this with both the Bush and Obama administration.  These two yahoos are both spendaholics racking up these huge and historic federal deficits pushing our nation closer to federal bankruptcy.  And due to these huge deficits, and all the interest payments on these deficits merely explains why the yahoo politicans have to get more and more creative in conning we the people to making major tax reform modifications.

 Since Obama could not get Congress to pass some of  his zany and insane tax proposals like the carbon tax, the Federal Reserve Bank has been forced to do two things:

1. Infuse huge amounts of cash into the market, and
2. Keep interest rates articifically low to reduce the interest on the federal debt, which keeps growing and   growing due to a lack of fiscal monetary restraint.

And with artificially low interest rates, banks are going to hoard cash, there will be no loans made to most consumers by lending institutions, no job job growth and the opposite of economic prosperity.  When the Federal Reserve starts raising interest rates, then an economic recovery will ensue, the unemployment numbers will drop and we as a nation can focus on rebuilding our national infrastructure leading to our future prosperity.

 Now when are all these great predictions going to happen?

Hopefully, after the 2012 Presidential Election when we can finally get a true fiscal conservative elected as POTUS and get rid of few more of these current political yahoos, both Congressman and Senators that created this huge economic mess we are still having to deal with. 

The reality is the yahoos in DC are getting to stick to the middle class and the poor with regressive and consumption taxes some more until we get rid of many of these incumbents and Presidents that are spendaholics.  As well, the old style yahoos in DC that  created this mess, will also try their best to  eliminate most of the major and lawful deductions most of middle class America have come to rely on. 

Now I agree to the following:

a) We need to reduce federal spending, and
b) We need a progressive tax reform, not a regressive modification to our federal tax system, and
c) The Yahoo Politicans in DC will fight for regressive tax modifications to the United States Tax Code.

Therefore, this leads to the conclusion we the people are going to get screwed some more if the DC yahoos try to make major reforms to our federal tax code.

What we the people should be demanding is the elimination of prior and any new consumption taxes because they are regressive impacting the middle and lower class.  I cannot support any tax reform that is regressive causing the middle class and the poor to pay even more in federal, state, county and local governments that show no inclination or desire to restrain their own spending. 

Government was once for and by the people. Instead, we have government for the government at all levels, trying to maintain and increase its control over we the people.

So be reflective and understand all these governments are intent upon getting more of your money by trickery and creatively inventing every tax scheme they can to maintain big brother.

Wiki Leaks: Showdown at the OK Corral

Wiki Leaks and Julian.  What can we all say about this drama?  How about some predictions?

In this  big  shootout at OK Corral, which is kind of where this is heading, Julian is kind of screwed. Kind of like Paul Neuman in Cool Hand Luke.  "What we have here is a failure to communicate."  Except in this situation, there is plenty of communication. Heck, this is better than the shootout at OK Corral.

What we have here is just simply a failure of our Secretary of State which Julian keeps reminding everyone. Naturally, the failure is Hillary Clinton's fault.

But Julian is not the only one screwed here.  There are some big corporations and many governments that are screwed also in this check and checkmate scenario.  So, Julian will probably never get out of jail and will somehow be mysteriously killed. Which will  propel this Julian guy to historic proportion. The poison pill message will be released and governments  and corporations will be forced to deal with the collateral damage caused by the cyber retalliation attack.

And naturally, there will be movies made.  Lots of t-shirts.  And copy-cat people doing the same thing.  Requiring governments to straighten up what they publish in diplomatic cables.  Julian has kicked their ass. Now it is the government's turn. 

And the rest of us will never forget this high stakes drama.  Hillary will be fired.  Lots of people in the government will be fired.  And our national security will be a lot better thanks to Wiki Leaks and Julian.

The High Cost of Getting Shellacked in the 2010 Election Cycle

Obama is caving in to the unrelenting demand of the GOP to extend the tax cuts to the wealthy.  And naturally tomorrow, the Dem leadership will be whining, but powerless to do much about the Obama Tax Compromise. 

This is the high cost of getting shellacked in the 2010 election cycle.  Now I reported in this blog in February 2009 about Obama caving in to the whiny GOV's of each state; instead of using those limited funds to rebuild our national infrastructure.  I clearly wrote here at that time how this was a huge mistake of his administration and a clear sign of Obama lacking the courage needed to be a good leader.

So clearly Obama wants to please--well, pleasing everyone is not the goal of our President.  Our President is supposed to do what is best for our nation regardless of party politics.  So Obama was clearly boxed into a corner by the GOP leadership on this tax cut situation post-election by the shellacking.

So, the GOP won the tax cuts, but we as a nation of taxpayers will pay a hefty price later, as we the people get shellacked sooner or later with massive tax increases and huge cuts in federal spending.

Stand by to be shellacked soon.  For certainly, it is your turn to be shellacked next.  It is just a matter of when.

Lame Duck Yahoo Politicans Wheeling and Dealing in DC-Political Nonsense Continues

We elected a whole batch of new candidates in a huge shellacking in November elections.  I will be glad when some of these newly elected honestly come out of the closet by making some comments about this political posturing related to extending the Bush Tax Cuts in exchange for more federal employment benefits.

First, I have a huge problem with state sovereignity based on the 10th Amend. to the United States Constitution. Funding employment insurance is not a function of the federal government at all.  Or, if it is, give me your legal argument on why the federal government should be involved in funding those that are unemployed benefits using your and my tax dollars. 

Second, when did it shift from the state to the federal government, this funding of those who are unemployed. 

Finally, this joke Debt Reduction Commission is merely democratic political posturing having no power to make the United States Congress fiscally responsible.

We the people are the real Debt Reduction Commission.  And if those that are newly elected merely blend in with the corrpution of DC, we will ensure they are reduced right out of office come the 2012 election cycle.

Getting Prepared to Sue the IRS Commissioner

The Internal Revenue Service continues to refuse to process my 2009 federal tax return that includes issuing me a federal homebuyer tax credit for timely purchasing a condo in FL.  Now yesterday, I sent a certified letter, return receipt to the Commisssioner of the IRS. 

He has until January 2011 to see that I receive this federal tax credit. 

If I do not, then I am going to send the Commissioner a federal complaint here in southern FL asking him why not. 

Stay tuned.

Wiki Leaks and why Hillary Clinton should be resigning soon

This Wiki Leak situation is very embarressing to our nation.  Naturally, who is responsible?

Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. She should resign.  Soon.  Before Obama fires her.

For good reason.  This is her fault.

Now many people are not certain whom Wiki Leaks are and what is their function.  Merely go to:

On one hand, as a fellow writer and former investigator, I admire investigative journalism and am  supportive of honesty and accurate reporting. That is what I have been taught is the American way.  Therefore,  I admire what this organization is doing, its goals and its accuracy.

On the other hand, our federal government should be embarresed about its lack of transparency and now wants to mount a counter-offensive against honesty?

What is happening to our federal government?  Like written in the past on this blog, the people in Washington apparently are/have going insane and are in some kind of delusional state that is a major international embarressment of our nation.

My take on whether Jesus was a communist or a capitalist.

Ok sportsfans, here is a post I just received from those ultra-liberal socialists over at CNN where two people are debating whether Jesus was a communist or a capitalist.  Click this thing below to read this at

Clearly by application of common sense, Jesus was no capitalist.  No matter how twisted a person like an attorney can argue absurd things like that.  So I am eliminating that part of the argument right away without  further discussion.

So, the question we are left with was Jesus a Communist? 

First, we all know Jesus would really dislike the Federal Reserve Bank, Ben Bernake and QE2.  We discussed this in an prior piece suggesting that Jesus would probably ask God to send Bernake and Treasury Tim Geither straight to hell.  So I do not need to elaborate on why on that part.

Second, we know both Jesus and Scherer strongly dislike real estate property taxes.  Jesus definitely opposed a practice in Israel called the Jubilee.  Now the Jubilee happened every fifty years.  Unlike my real estate property taxes that happen every year. 

Further, anyone that reads the Bible knows or should know what the Jubilee was in context to what happened to Jesus.My theory is when Jesus opposed the Jewish tradition of the Jubilee, well . . .  this ticked off a lot of people.  And this is one of the major reasons Jesus was crucified. 

Third, Jesus stated regarding the Jubilee the oft quoted statement, "render unto Caesar, those things that belong to Caesar, and render unto God those things that belong to God."  Now my take on what Jesus was stating is basically God owns everything and Caesar does not get squat including my real estate taxes.  So both Jesus and Scherer are alike in disliking real estate property taxes. Regardless, I am digressing. 

Finally, getting back to the issue at hand.  Since Jesus dislikes bankers including stupid things like QE2, and he hates taxes, clearly Jesus must have at least been a socialist. I think a better question that could have been posted was Jesus a progressive socialist, a republican or a Tea Party kind of person.  I personally think Jesus would have been a tea party person and a strong supporter of Sarah Palin.

Whether he was a commie or not, I doubt.  If Jesus were a commie, he would be working at CNN.

A lot of GOP insiders are desperate-So they attack Sarah Palin?

I find it amusing that some GOP insiders, mainly Bush like people decided to launch today some kind of zany offensive campaign against Tea Party hero, Sarah Palin.

This only makes sense because Sarah Palin clearly represents a new type of politican that is not afraid of GOP insiders. 

So it is only natural these evil people are going to try to derail the Palin juggernaut.  Good luck with that one.  With Palin rolling along, and getting more confident she can win the Presidency in 2012 and beat the progressive socialists including Obama, a lot of people are going to want to attack Palin.

Good.  All the attention, even negative will help Palin gather more  steam as she continues to focus on what we the people of America want.  And that ticks off the Bush loyalists.  Maybe these GOP insiders should be focusing on what Sarah Palin represents.  Which is us.

This plan of the Bushites will backfire and solidify Palin as the leading Presidential candidate as the caucus events start happening. They always attack the one leading for the wrong reasons. 

Then, one of my worst fears, a Hillary Clinton vice presidency by  swapping places with Joe Biden is so laughable.  And scary. 

Can anyone really see Joe Biden being a Secretary of State?  Get real people.  Has everyone in Washington lost their minds? 

Apparently so. 

Way to go Bush people. Thanks for the humor today. I needed to roflmao again.  What next? Jeb Bush going to run?  I certainly hope no one is serious about that happening.  Bush III-what a nightmare that would be.

DO NOT DRINK THE WATER IN IMMOKALEE FLORIDA: My fate and destiny resides in Immokalee-Why Jesus?

For some unknown reason, fate keeps taking me back to the deplorable 3rd world conditions of Immokale Florida. Why, I do not need to determine.

Now previously I had posted two posts last spring on my attempts on behalf of the GOV of FL, through delegation with the FL ADA coordinator to moniter and offer assistance to the migrant farm workers that reside there.

This weekend, I was invited by a friend to attend and participate in a protest in Naples FL yesterday at a local Publix store, a major grocery chain here in southern FL.

I learned something from participating in this demonstration with the leaders of the Migrant Farmworker Coalition. My previous work efforts related to being assistive to the deplorable work conditions and horrible inequity in pay to these individuals made me realize why my past efforts in my being assistive had failed.

These migrant farm workers have lots of pride. They do not want charity or handouts. Including any that would be provided by the state of FL, the people of FL or anyone else such as myself. No, these proud workers merely want a fair wage for their hard work. The work they do provide results in putting food on your table.

So now I am better informed of what the migrant farm workers really want. A fair wage. But I am not going to be happy with merely a fair wage.

A lot of the wealthy and fortunate here in southern FL quickly take the easiet option and merely donate money or their used property thinking incorrectly, just like I did, these migrant farm working families must need our charity in the form of money and used property.  Wrong.

I agree with the migrant farm workers postion related to getting a fair wage for their labor.  I stand corrected however, and remain united with them on a fair wage.  However, unlike them, I want more than that for all those that reside in Immokalee including the migrant farm workers.

At a higher level, I always put life before economic development.  I note these can and should be done concurrently.  But not in Immokalee.  Local leaders are only focused on an economic engine and could care less about human life and deplorable and deadly living conditions for these people.  So, it is only civil to want more than merely fair wages for their hard labor.

These migrant farm workers and the rest of the citizens of Immmokalee also deserve adequate living conditions. This includes the county ensuring some basic public services like drinking water does not kill the residents, the migrant farm workers, or members of their families.

Now my little piece of this equation remains firmly that the county in which they reside admitted to me in dated email this past spring that factually the drainage ditches along the state highways are not properly being maintained causing stagnation and pollution. Which then in turn,  those polluted waters infilitrate and contaminate the ground water results in people dying from merely drinking water.

That remains deplorable.  And for Collier County officials to admit to me in an email their officials failed to maintain the drainage ditches causing death to others, is simplly an act of murder by omission, by the county.

So instead of the generous and fortunate people of Collier county doing what is easy-giving contributions not wanted by these proud and underpaid migrant farm workers, I merely suggest the fortunate of Collier County ask and demand the county maintain their drainage ditches that are causing this deadly pollution.

It is plain to me the people of Immokalee including the migrant farm workers that are part of the economic engine of Immokalee, deserve not to die while being a big picture in that economic engine.

Now I am all for economic development. Many in southern FL merely want to make this area a major tourist attraction similar to the "new" Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

Well, if indeed that is what the people of southern FL want, a good place to start is ensuring those people that reside in Immokalee do not die from a simple failure to maintain drainage ditches that are polluted. You think?

So to those that go to the Seminole Indian Casino in Immokalee, do not drink the water.

It might kill you.

Just like it is doing to the migrant farm workers, their families and equally to the other residents of this town.

Deficit Reduction Commission-ROFLMAO

Right.  The progressive socialist party, aka democrats now have a deficit reduction commission wanting to trick all of us people again.  After wasting trillions of  dollars, the socialists now want to trick us some more, we the dummies . . . err,  we the people to somehow magically believe they are suddenly post-election somehow serious now about reducing the federal deficit.

Particularily now that the GOP controls Congress.  Equally funny is the GOP stating they are going to reduce the federal deficit after we all had to endure 8 years of GWB's fiscal irresponsibity and political nonsense.

Sure they are.  A bunch of lying politician yahoos still remain in control in DC.

Yesterday, I hear this rumor the dem party in part of their scheme and deficit reduction nonsense is going to get the political ball rolling with a bribe of 250 dollars to senior citizens and others on Social Security. Usually the bribes are supposed to be done right before the election.  What were they thinking.  The bribes should have been in late October.  Not after the election.

Now how does giving moeny in the amount of 250 dollars somehow cause a deficit reduction?  If the dem socialists give away 250 dollars in a bribe to the senior voting block, that is somehow reducing the federal deficit?  Let me if I have this right.  The Dem leadership plan to reduce the deficit is spend money?  Great thinking.  Hence, the shellacking in 2010 election cycle.

And plus, there is bipartisian support for a a moratorium on earmarks?  Sure they are.  ROFL.

This is the kind of nonsense only Crazy Nancy could think of.  No one normal thinks like this.  First, spend money to reduce the deficit dortefies common sense.  Really, what this is telling me the Dem leadership is so desperate after getting shellacked at the voting booths, they are going to start the bribes shortly after the election. 

Second, I anticipate more bribes will be coming forth clear to the 2012 Presidential election.  Bribes for votes.  The new political agenda for the Dem Socialist Party, naturally another stolen idea from Bush tactical analysts.  Whomever offers the biggest bribe is the new paradigm in politican elections.  Pander to people's greed and economic self-interest before the election.  Then tax the crap out of us post-election.  Give a little, tax a lot kind of logic. 

Now the GOP are about as insane.  Reduce the budget deficit by insisting the the Bush tax cuts must be extened to cut the federal deficit-our GOP federal tax scheme just has to stay in place. Now this kind of irrational logic is just as bad as the dem socialists.  Reduce federal receipts is somehow necessary to reduce the federal deficit.  This is merely  more of that Reagan Voodoo Economic theories; or as I prefer to call it, economic nonsense.

Somehow, by reducing federal tax receipts from the rich will somehow magically lead by trickle-down economics that will in turn lead our nation to another round of economic prosperity leading to a budget deficit reduction,  So based on GOP logic, our nation must keep the Bush tax cuts in place bcause the rich cannot afford right now to pay a fairer amount and our economy just has to have kept in place phoney baloney tax protection for the rich.  No wonder the Tea Party movement continues post-election.

To deal with all this political doublespeak and lack of rational thought makes most of us want to ROFL.  The way I see things, like most normal people, is we justcannot believe either one of these lying political parties.  You can bet there will be no agreement from this budget deficit recommendations anyone will find credible. Nor will any of their recommendations be implemented.

 It seems to me all I am hearing from this commission is a fear tactic stolen from Bush theorists.  Scare the crap out of people pretending the dems must do something now that they lost control of Congress. 

Earmarks, corruption and bribes will all be increasing the federal deficit and will merely continue as is typical of DC political yahoos.  Talk about reducing the deficit just like a drunken sailor returning to port after a long voyage.  Lie like a dog. 

So, at least while the the two major parties continue to  lie to all of us dummies, most of us skeptics out here are so used to, remains very much our political reality leaving me roflmao. 

Rhetorically, are there any statesmen left in America?

Looking back at Bushisms-A Bush League Book

Do I miss George Bush being our President?  Hardly.  I am not even happy he is doing his self-promotion with his book.  Here are some fuzzy memories most of us remember six years ago full of Bushisms:

In Acceptance Speech, President Bush Shares His Plan for a Safer World & More Hopeful America

Republican National Convention,New York, New York(Remarks as prepared for delivery.)

Mr. Chairman, delegates, fellow citizens: I am honored by your support, and I accept your nomination for President of the United States.

When I said those words four years ago, none of us could have envisioned what these years would bring. In the heart of this great city, we saw tragedy arrive on a quiet morning. We saw the bravery of rescuers grow with danger. We learned of passengers on a doomed plane who died with a courage that frightened their killers. We have seen a shaken economy rise to its feet. And we have seen Americans in uniform storming mountain strongholds, and charging through sandstorms, and liberating millions, with acts of valor that would make the men of Normandy proud.

Since 2001, Americans have been given hills to climb, and found the strength to climb them. Now, because we have made the hard journey, we can see the valley below. Now, because we have faced challenges with resolve, we have historic goals within our reach, and greatness in our future. We will build a safer world and a more hopeful America—and nothing will hold us back.

In the work we have done, and the work we will do, I am fortunate to have a superb Vice President. I have counted on Dick Cheney’s calm and steady judgment in difficult days, and I am honored to have him at my side.

I am grateful to share my walk in life with Laura Bush. Americans have come to see the goodness and kindness and strength I first saw 26 years ago, and we love our First Lady.

I am a fortunate father of two spirited, intelligent, and lovely young women. I am blessed with a sister and brothers who are also my closest friends. And I will always be the proud and grateful son of George and Barbara Bush.

My father served eight years at the side of another great American—Ronald Reagan. His spirit of optimism and goodwill and decency are in this hall, and in our hearts, and will always define our party.

Two months from today, voters will make a choice based on the records we have built, the convictions we hold, and the vision that guides us forward. A presidential election is a contest for the future. Tonight I will tell you where I stand, what I believe, and where I will lead this country in the next four years.

I believe every child can learn, and every school must teach—so we passed the most important federal education reform in history. Because we acted, children are making sustained progress in reading and math, America’s schools are getting better, and nothing will hold us back.

I believe we have a moral responsibility to honor America’s seniors—so I brought Republicans and Democrats together to strengthen Medicare. Now seniors are getting immediate help buying medicine. Soon every senior will be able to get prescription drug coverage, and nothing will hold us back.

I believe in the energy and innovative spirit of America’s workers, entrepreneurs, farmers, and ranchers—so we unleashed that energy with the largest tax relief in a generation. Because we acted, our economy is growing again, and creating jobs, and nothing will hold us back.

I believe the most solemn duty of the American president is to protect the American people. If America shows uncertainty and weakness in this decade, the world will drift toward tragedy. This will not happen on my watch.

I am running for President with a clear and positive plan to build a safer world, and a more hopeful America. I am running with a compassionate conservative philosophy: that government should help people improve their lives, not try to run their lives. I believe this Nation wants steady, consistent, principled leadership—and that is why, with your help, we will win this election.

The story of America is the story of expanding liberty: an ever-widening circle, constantly growing to reach further and include more. Our Nation’s founding commitment is still our deepest commitment: In our world, and here at home, we will extend the frontiers of freedom.

The times in which we live and work are changing dramatically. The workers of our parents’ generation typically had one job, one skill, one career ? often with one company that provided health care and a pension. And most of those workers were men. Today, workers change jobs, even careers, many times during their lives, and in one of the most dramatic shifts our society has seen, two-thirds of all Moms also work outside the home.

This changed world can be a time of great opportunity for all Americans to earn a better living, support your family, and have a rewarding career. And government must take your side. Many of our most fundamental systems—the tax code, health coverage, pension plans, worker training—were created for the world of yesterday, not tomorrow. We will transform these systems so that all citizens are equipped, prepared—and thus truly free—to make your own choices and pursue your own dreams.

My plan begins with providing the security and opportunity of a growing economy. We now compete in a global market that provides new buyers for our goods, but new competition for our workers. To create more jobs in America, America must be the best place in the world to do business. To create jobs, my plan will encourage investment and expansion by restraining federal spending, reducing regulation, and making tax relief permanent. To create jobs, we will make our country less dependent on foreign sources of energy. To create jobs, we will expand trade and level the playing field to sell American goods and services across the globe. And we must protect small business owners and workers from the explosion of frivolous lawsuits that threaten jobs across America.

Another drag on our economy is the current tax code, which is a complicated mess—filled with special interest loopholes, saddling our people with more than six billion hours of paperwork and headache every year. The American people deserve—and our economic future demands—a simpler, fairer, pro-growth system. In a new term, I will lead a bipartisan effort to reform and simplify the federal tax code.

Another priority in a new term will be to help workers take advantage of the expanding economy to find better, higher-paying jobs. In this time of change, many workers want to go back to school to learn different or higher-level skills. So we will double the number of people served by our principal job training program and increase funding for community colleges. I know that with the right skills, American workers can compete with anyone, anywhere in the world.

In this time of change, opportunity in some communities is more distant than in others. To stand with workers in poor communities—and those that have lost manufacturing, textile, and other jobs—we will create American opportunity zones. In these areas, we’ll provide tax relief and other incentives to attract new business, and improve housing and job training to bring hope and work throughout all of America.

As I’ve traveled the country, I’ve met many workers and small business owners who have told me they are worried they cannot afford health care. More than half of the uninsured are small business employees and their families. In a new term, we must allow small firms to join together to purchase insurance at the discounts available to big companies. We will offer a tax credit to encourage small businesses and their employees to set up health savings accounts, and provide direct help for low-income Americans to purchase them. These accounts give workers the security of insurance against major illness, the opportunity to save tax-free for routine health expenses, and the freedom of knowing you can take your account with you whenever you change jobs. And we will provide low-income Americans with better access to health care: In a new term, I will ensure every poor county in America has a community or rural health center.

As I have traveled our country, I have met too many good doctors, especially OB-GYNS, who are being forced out of practice because of the high cost of lawsuits. To make health care more affordable and accessible, we must pass medical liability reform now. And in all we do to improve health care in America, we will make sure that health decisions are made by doctors and patients, not by bureaucrats in Washington, DC.

In this time of change, government must take the side of working families. In a new term, we will change outdated labor laws to offer comp-time and flex-time. Our laws should never stand in the way of a more family-friendly workplace.

Another priority for a new term is to build an ownership society, because ownership brings security, and dignity, and independence. Thanks to our policies, homeownership in America is at an all-time high. Tonight we set a new goal: seven million more affordable homes in the next 10 years so more American families will be able to open the door and say welcome to my home.

In an ownership society, more people will own their health plans, and have the confidence of owning a piece of their retirement. We will always keep the promise of Social Security for our older workers. With the huge Baby Boom generation approaching retirement, many of our children and grandchildren understandably worry whether Social Security will be there when they need it. We must strengthen Social Security by allowing younger workers to save some of their taxes in a personal account—a nest egg you can call your own, and government can never take away.

In all these proposals, we seek to provide not just a government program, but a path—a path to greater opportunity, more freedom, and more control over your own life.

This path begins with our youngest Americans. To build a more hopeful America, we must help our children reach as far as their vision and character can take them. Tonight, I remind every parent and every teacher, I say to every child: No matter what your circumstance, no matter where you live—your school will be the path to the promise of America.

We are transforming our schools by raising standards and focusing on results. We are insisting on accountability, empowering parents and teachers, and making sure that local people are in charge of their schools. By testing every child, we are identifying those who need help ? and we’re providing a record level of funding to get them that help. In northeast Georgia, Gainesville Elementary School is mostly Hispanic and 90 percent poor ? and this year 90 percent of its students passed state tests in reading and math. The principal expresses the philosophy of his school this way: “We don’t focus on what we can’t do at this school; we focus on what we can do—We do whatever it takes to get kids across the finish line.” This principal is challenging the soft bigotry of low expectations, and that is the spirit of our education reform, and the commitment of our country: No dejaremos a ningzn niqo atras. We will leave no child behind.

We are making progress—and there is more to do. In this time of change, most new jobs are filled by people with at least two years of college, yet only about one in four students gets there. In our high schools, we will fund early intervention programs to help students at risk. We will place a new focus on math and science. As we make progress, we will require a rigorous exam before graduation. By raising performance in our high schools, and expanding Pell grants for low and middle income families, we will help more Americans start their career with a college diploma.

America’s children must also have a healthy start in life. In a new term, we will lead an aggressive effort to enroll millions of poor children who are eligible but not signed up for the government’s health insurance programs. We will not allow a lack of attention, or information, to stand between these children and the health care they need.

Anyone who wants more details on my agenda can find them online. The web address is not very imaginative, but it’s easy to remember:

These changing times can be exciting times of expanded opportunity. And here, you face a choice. My opponent’s policies are dramatically different from ours. Senator Kerry opposed Medicare reform and health savings accounts. After supporting my education reforms, he now wants to dilute them. He opposes legal and medical liability reform. He opposed reducing the marriage penalty, opposed doubling the child credit, and opposed lowering income taxes for all who pay them. To be fair, there are some things my opponent is for—he’s proposed more than two trillion dollars in new federal spending so far, and that’s a lot, even for a senator from Massachusetts. To pay for that spending, he is running on a platform of increasing taxes—and that’s the kind of promise a politician usually keeps.

His policies of tax and spend—of expanding government rather than expanding opportunity—are the policies of the past. We are on the path to the future—and we are not turning back.

In this world of change, some things do not change: the values we try to live by, the institutions that give our lives meaning and purpose. Our society rests on a foundation of responsibility and character and family commitment. Because family and work are sources of stability and dignity, I support welfare reform that strengthens family and requires work. Because a caring society will value its weakest members, we must make a place for the unborn child. Because religious charities provide a safety net of mercy and compassion, our government must never discriminate against them. Because the union of a man and woman deserves an honored place in our society, I support the protection of marriage against activist judges. And I will continue to appoint federal judges who know the difference between personal opinion and the strict interpretation of the law.

My opponent recently announced that he is the candidate of “conservative values,” which must have come as a surprise to a lot of his supporters. Now, there are some problems with this claim. If you say the heart and soul of America is found in Hollywood, I’m afraid you are not the candidate of conservative values. If you voted against the bipartisan Defense of Marriage Act, which President Clinton signed, you are not the candidate of conservative values. If you gave a speech, as my opponent did, calling the Reagan presidency eight years of “moral darkness,” then you may be a lot of things, but the candidate of conservative values is not one of them.
This election will also determine how America responds to the continuing danger of terrorism—and you know where I stand. Three days after September 11th, I stood where Americans died, in the ruins of the Twin Towers. Workers in hard hats were shouting to me, “Whatever it takes.” A fellow grabbed me by the arm and he said, “Do not let me down.” Since that day, I wake up every morning thinking about how to better protect our country. I will never relent in defending America—whatever it takes.

So we have fought the terrorists across the earth—not for pride, not for power, but because the lives of our citizens are at stake. Our strategy is clear. We have tripled funding for homeland security and trained half a million first responders, because we are determined to protect our homeland. We are transforming our military and reforming and strengthening our intelligence services. We are staying on the offensive—striking terrorists abroad—so we do not have to face them here at home. And we are working to advance liberty in the broader Middle East, because freedom will bring a future of hope, and the peace we all want. And we will prevail.

Our strategy is succeeding. Four years ago, Afghanistan was the home base of al-Qaida, Pakistan was a transit point for terrorist groups, Saudi Arabia was fertile ground for terrorist fundraising, Libya was secretly pursuing nuclear weapons, Iraq was a gathering threat, and al-Qaida was largely unchallenged as it planned attacks. Today, the government of a free Afghanistan is fighting terror, Pakistan is capturing terrorist leaders, Saudi Arabia is making raids and arrests, Libya is dismantling its weapons programs, the army of a free Iraq is fighting for freedom, and more than three-quarters of al-Qaida’s key members and associates have been detained or killed. We have led, many have joined, and America and the world are safer.

This progress involved careful diplomacy, clear moral purpose, and some tough decisions. And the toughest came on Iraq. We knew Saddam Hussein’s record of aggression and support for terror. We knew his long history of pursuing, even using, weapons of mass destruction. And we know that September 11th requires our country to think differently: We must, and we will, confront threats to America before it is too late.

In Saddam Hussein, we saw a threat. Members of both political parties, including my opponent and his running mate, saw the threat, and voted to authorize the use of force. We went to the United Nations Security Council, which passed a unanimous resolution demanding the dictator disarm, or face serious consequences. Leaders in the Middle East urged him to comply. After more than a decade of diplomacy, we gave Saddam Hussein another chance, a final chance, to meet his responsibilities to the civilized world. He again refused, and I faced the kind of decision that comes only to the Oval Office—a decision no president would ask for, but must be prepared to make. Do I forget the lessons of September 11th and take the word of a madman, or do I take action to defend our country? Faced with that choice, I will defend America every time.

Because we acted to defend our country, the murderous regimes of Saddam Hussein and the Taliban are history, more than 50 million people have been liberated, and democracy is coming to the broader Middle East. In Afghanistan, terrorists have done everything they can to intimidate people—yet more than 10 million citizens have registered to vote in the October presidential election ? a resounding endorsement of democracy. Despite ongoing acts of violence, Iraq now has a strong Prime Minister, a national council, and national elections are scheduled for January. Our Nation is standing with the people of Afghanistan and Iraq, because when America gives its word, America must keep its word. As importantly, we are serving a vital and historic cause that will make our country safer. Free societies in the Middle East will be hopeful societies, which no longer feed resentments and breed violence for export. Free governments in the Middle East will fight terrorists instead of harboring them, and that helps us keep the peace. So our mission in Afghanistan and Iraq is clear: We will help new leaders to train their armies, and move toward elections, and get on the path of stability and democracy as quickly as possible. And then our troops will return home with the honor they have earned.

Our troops know the historic importance of our work. One Army Specialist wrote home: “We are transforming a once sick society into a hopeful place ... The various terrorist enemies we are facing in Iraq,” he continued, “are really aiming at you back in the United States. This is a test of will for our country. We soldiers of yours are doing great and scoring victories in confronting the evil terrorists.”

That young man is right—our men and women in uniform are doing a superb job for America. Tonight I want to speak to all of them—and to their families: You are involved in a struggle of historic proportion. Because of your service and sacrifice, we are defeating the terrorists where they live and plan, and making America safer. Because of you, women in Afghanistan are no longer shot in a sports stadium. Because of you, the people of Iraq no longer fear being executed and left in mass graves. Because of you, the world is more just and will be more peaceful. We owe you our thanks, and we owe you something more. We will give you all the resources, all the tools, and all the support you need for victory.

Again, my opponent and I have different approaches. I proposed, and the Congress overwhelmingly passed, 87 billion dollars in funding needed by our troops doing battle in Afghanistan and Iraq. My opponent and his running mate voted against this money for bullets, and fuel, and vehicles, and body armor. When asked to explain his vote, the Senator said, “I actually did vote for the 87 billion dollars before I voted against it.” Then he said he was “proud” of that vote. Then, when pressed, he said it was a “complicated” matter. There is nothing complicated about supporting our troops in combat.

Our allies also know the historic importance of our work. About 40 nations stand beside us in Afghanistan, and some 30 in Iraq. And I deeply appreciate the courage and wise counsel of leaders like Prime Minister Howard, and President Kwasniewski, and Prime Minister Berlusconi -- and, of course, Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Again, my opponent takes a different approach. In the midst of war, he has called America’s allies, quote, a “coalition of the coerced and the bribed.” That would be nations like Great Britain, Poland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Denmark, El Salvador, Australia, and others—allies that deserve the respect of all Americans, not the scorn of a politician. I respect every soldier, from every country, who serves beside us in the hard work of history. America is grateful, and America will not forget.

The people we have freed won’t forget either. Not long ago, seven Iraqi men came to see me in the Oval Office. They had “X”s branded into their foreheads, and their right hands had been cut off, by Saddam Hussein’s secret police, the sadistic punishment for imaginary crimes. During our emotional visit one of the Iraqi men used his new prosthetic hand to slowly write out, in Arabic, a prayer for God to bless America. I am proud that our country remains the hope of the oppressed, and the greatest force for good on this earth.

Others understand the historic importance of our work. The terrorists know. They know that a vibrant, successful democracy at the heart of the Middle East will discredit their radical ideology of hate. They know that men and women with hope, and purpose, and dignity do not strap bombs on their bodies and kill the innocent. The terrorists are fighting freedom with all their cunning and cruelty because freedom is their greatest fear—and they should be afraid, because freedom is on the march.

I believe in the transformational power of liberty: The wisest use of American strength is to advance freedom. As the citizens of Afghanistan and Iraq seize the moment, their example will send a message of hope throughout a vital region. Palestinians will hear the message that democracy and reform are within their reach, and so is peace with our good friend Israel. Young women across the Middle East will hear the message that their day of equality and justice is coming. Young men will hear the message that national progress and dignity are found in liberty, not tyranny and terror. Reformers, and political prisoners, and exiles will hear the message that their dream of freedom cannot be denied forever. And as freedom advances—heart by heart, and nation by nation—America will be more secure and the world more peaceful.

America has done this kind of work before—and there have always been doubters. In 1946, 18 months after the fall of Berlin to allied forces, a journalist wrote in the New York Times, “Germany is ... a land in an acute stage of economic, political and moral crisis. [European] capitals are frightened. In every [military] headquarters, one meets alarmed officials doing their utmost to deal with the consequences of the occupation policy that they admit has failed.” End quote. Maybe that same person’s still around, writing editorials. Fortunately, we had a resolute president named Truman, who with the American people persevered, knowing that a new democracy at the center of Europe would lead to stability and peace. And because that generation of Americans held firm in the cause of liberty, we live in a better and safer world today.

The progress we and our friends and allies seek in the broader Middle East will not come easily, or all at once. Yet Americans, of all people, should never be surprised by the power of liberty to transform lives and nations. That power brought settlers on perilous journeys, inspired colonies to rebellion, ended the sin of slavery, and set our Nation against the tyrannies of the 20th century. We were honored to aid the rise of democracy in Germany and Japan and Nicaragua and Central Europe and the Baltics --and that noble story goes on. I believe that America is called to lead the cause of freedom in a new century. I believe that millions in the Middle East plead in silence for their liberty. I believe that given the chance, they will embrace the most honorable form of government ever devised by man. I believe all these things because freedom is not America’s gift to the world, it is the Almighty God’s gift to every man and woman in this world.

This moment in the life of our country will be remembered. Generations will know if we kept our faith and kept our word. Generations will know if we seized this moment, and used it to build a future of safety and peace. The freedom of many, and the future security of our Nation, now depend on us. And tonight, my fellow Americans, I ask you to stand with me.

In the last four years, you and I have come to know each other. Even when we don’t agree, at least you know what I believe and where I stand. You may have noticed I have a few flaws, too. People sometimes have to correct my English—I knew I had a problem when Arnold Schwarzenegger started doing it. Some folks look at me and see a certain swagger, which in Texas is called “walking.” Now and then I come across as a little too blunt—and for that we can all thank the white-haired lady sitting right up there.One thing I have learned about the presidency is that whatever shortcomings you have, people are going to notice them—and whatever strengths you have, you’re going to need them. These four years have brought moments I could not foresee and will not forget. I have tried to comfort Americans who lost the most on September 11th—people who showed me a picture or told me a story, so I would know how much was taken from them. I have learned first-hand that ordering Americans into battle is the hardest decision, even when it is right. I have returned the salute of wounded soldiers, some with a very tough road ahead, who say they were just doing their job. I’ve held the children of the fallen, who are told their dad or mom is a hero, but would rather just have their dad or mom.

And I have met with parents and wives and husbands who have received a folded flag, and said a final goodbye to a soldier they loved. I am awed that so many have used those meetings to say that I am in their prayers ? to offer encouragement to me. Where does strength like that come from? How can people so burdened with sorrow also feel such pride? It is because they know their loved one was last seen doing good. Because they know that liberty was precious to the one they lost. And in those military families, I have seen the character of a great nation: decent, and idealistic, and strong.

The world saw that spirit three miles from here, when the people of this city faced peril together, and lifted a flag over the ruins, and defied the enemy with their courage. My fellow Americans, for as long as our country stands, people will look to the resurrection of New York City and they will say: Here buildings fell, and here a nation rose.

We see America’s character in our military, which finds a way or makes one. We see it in our veterans, who are supporting military families in their days of worry. We see it in our young people, who have found heroes once again. We see that character in workers and entrepreneurs, who are renewing our economy with their effort and optimism. And all of this has confirmed one belief beyond doubt: Having come this far, our tested and confident Nation can achieve anything.

To everything we know there is a season—a time for sadness, a time for struggle, a time for rebuilding. And now we have reached a time for hope. This young century will be liberty’s century. By promoting liberty abroad, we will build a safer world. By encouraging liberty at home, we will build a more hopeful America. Like generations before us, we have a calling from beyond the stars to stand for freedom. This is the everlasting dream of America -- and tonight, in this place, that dream is renewed. Now we go forward—grateful for our freedom, faithful to our cause, and confident in the future of the greatest nation on earth.

God bless you, and may God continue to bless America.


So when I look back whether that be 2000, 2004, or 2008, one thing is quite clear.  We keep electing really rotten fiscally irresponsible people to be the POTUS and then we all shake our heads wondering what is wrong with America.  Start this book with Bush and move forward to Obama and hopefully, insanity and fiscal irresponsibility ends in 2012.

What me worry? by Alfred E. Bernake

While Muslim Obama is sucking up to the rest of his Muslim world, most of us reasonable people remember Mad Magazine and the former Alfred E. Neuman.  Who has been succeeded by Fed Reserve Chairman Alfred E. Bernake. 

Mr. Bernake clearly does not worry about the value of the American dollar.  So he just makes more money whenever he feels like it, usually on a whim.  Why should Alfred Bernake  worry?

He has the rest of us Americans who can worry about Bernake's monetary expansionistic theories related to our stagnation, zero economic growth, foreclosures, declining property values and no job expansion; while little is being done regarding our national infrastructure.

So why should we worry either?

We should all do like the rest of the international community is going to do-dump t-bills and invest in gold and real hard assets instead of worthless U.S. dollars.

For the kids that do not remember Alfred E. Bernake, just go to this link:

The only thing more insane than QE2 are the people running the Federal Reserve System

Well, there goes another trillion dollars of your money.  The Federal Reserve calls it quantatative easing, part II.  Then, part III further sending our national economy into the crapper as we move from being a brokeass nation to a bankrupt nation.

Demand an accounting of the Federal Reserve including the removal of the Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner for remaining clueless about what we the people want.

Now that we have spoken, there is a lot we need to do to get jobs and economic prosperity.  The first job is fire the Treasury Secretary, an economist that clearly is trying to screw us, we the people some more.  As stated, until we get rid of this manipulation of the national economy by this fourth branch of the government, the Federal Reserve, we are still screwed regardless of the election outcome yesterday.

With zero interest rates, the only entities that are going to prosper are bankers.  Screw the bankers.  We should have allowed a free market economy to force them to take bankruptcy back in 2008; just like any other business.  Instead, these bastards are robbing us.  Hence, why your home value continues to decline.  Provided you still have your home and are not in foreclosure already.

When we look back five to ten years from now, we will sadly remember how rotten things were.  Zero interest rates, massive home foreclosures, banks hoarding money, resulting in massive job losses domestically.  While our national infrastructure remains a big mess.

Hell, we all know how rotten our national economy is already.  This giveaway by the Federal Reserve is merely another horrible day in our country's history. 

We will not forget all this manipulation by the Federal Reserve.  The goal of all us is to remember and demand accountability, transparency and an end to the Federal Reserve Banking system as we know it.

Net Effect of the 2010 Election Cycle: We the people

The net effect of the 2010 election cycle produced a stunning, but predictable win for we the people.  We elected more statemen regardless of party affiliation.  Good.

Election Eve Crapola and why the raping of we the people will continue-Think QE2

Well, finally the elections will be over tomorrow.  Naturally, the House will be divided with gridlock with a few of the political yahoos still up there in the hellhole of DC. 

Further, we the people will have to endure more federal reserve nonsense tomorrow also called QE2.  Quantitative easing.  Which should make all of us uneasy as we are raped again by the Federal Reserve messing up the national economy.

Now with QE2, coupled with what Obama stated on Comedy Central last week, the banking system was so unregulated, it remains a huge mess. Obama clearly stated if he had let the free market economy do its thing, the, we would had a financial  meltdown worse than the Great Depression.

Merely look at what is happening on real estate foreclosures.  Notice all this nonsense to artificially stall foreclosures.  For good reason.  Too many of them. Home values will continue to decline some more, causing more foreclosures.  If you are feeling like you got raped, you did.  And the raping is still not done by the federal government, the crappy federal reserve and the too big to fail banks. 

After tomorrow, keep your expectations pretty low.  The rapings are going to continue. And do not expect Kevin Yoder to do much about it.  He has been greased by corporate America and will be one of the rapers of Kansans in the 3rd District.  Until we can get rid of him in 2012. 

You could have had Scherer.  Instead, you get a rapist for a congressman.  Way to go, Kansans. 

Turn the finger inward after tomorrow wondering what happened this time, this election cycle.  And when you wonder why you are getting screwed again, the finger points in the right direction.  You are the problem.

The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself; that and progressive socialism.

In  his 1934 Presidential inauguration speech by FDR, he stated clearly "the only thing we have to fear, is fear itself". 

To which I merely add, that and progressive socialism started by FDR. 

Like what FDR started in 1934, progressive socialism that keeps growing more and more with each new batch of yahoo politicans.  There has never been any abatement of progressive socialism since 1934.  In this speech (which I previously posted on this blog), FDR also threw out adherence to the United States Constitution. Hence, creating the term progressive implying our United States Constitution should change with the passage of time. Which was a horrible idea. 

We have been dealing with this progressive socialist expansion ever since.  Until we are where we are today--one brokeass federal government and our national economy is not looking that great either because of all this progressive socialism. Which is in direct contradiction to the limited purposes of a federal government.

Now we do not have to fear terrorists from Yemen.  Like this situation dealing with cargo planes being searched.  We Americans do not live in fear.  We deal with those that try to terrorize us.  And we will deal with this new round of testing cargo planes and other form of terrorism by any enemy of we the people, foreign or domestic.

In regard to something more dangerous, we have to worry and deal with some of the domestic progressive terrrorists, aka democrats  . . . well  we Tea Party patriots are taking care of some of those socialists Tuesday at the election.  So, they are the ones that should have fear. 

While I was in DC this week, I took the Metro Rail system.  The same one some crazy terrorist made details photographs of.  So some other nutjob could plant a bomb.  I took the Metro including the one at Pentagon City since I stayed in Arlington VA during my trip. 

When I got on the metro rail, I thought to myself, this would be a good place for a terrorist.  And when I got back to FL Wednesday, the news stations were broadcasting about this dude being arrested for giving plans to a terrorist organization that included bombing the rail station at Pentagon City.

Who cares?  I am not going to live my life in fear.

 I am not in charge of my fate and destiny anyway. So why should any of us including myself worry about any crazy terrorists.  The only thing we might consider having fear of this election cycle is that we do not get rid of all the progressive socialist yahoo politicians in 2010. 

But do not have any fear about it.  We will get rid of the rest of those yahoo progressive socialists in the 2012 election cycle.

In closing, progressive socialism is dead and our United States Constitution endures.

Just like our founding fathers intended.

Endnote: Since Halloween starts tonight, it is ok to pretend to be afraid of ghosts, vampires, old girlfriends, mother-in-laws, ex-wifes and Nancy Pelosi  dressed up in hideous costumes for Halloween.

But the reality is we courageous Americans do not have fear.  We deal with those who try to scare us.  Including addressing scary progressive socialists at Tuesdays' election.  So have a Happy Fearless Halloween.

Time to Boycott CNN: Why CNN needs a new CEO

Obama's CNN is really getting on my nerves. 

No wonder so many are learning to ignore their media drivel.  What used to be unbiased source of news has slowly and gradually become the enemy of we, the people. 

Why is CNN advocating so hard for progressive socialism? 

What can we expect next from CNN?  Hiring Whoopie and Joy Behar from the View as co-anchors?

Can CNN get any worse?  Like Obama supporters like to state, yes it can

Maybe it just might be the right time to switch the channel until CNN gets a new CEO that is conservative, likes Edward Morrow and returns to merely reporting the news; instead of spinning the news it wishes was.

We should all boycott CNN until it returns to being a reliable and unbiased source of news.

Another example of what is wrong in America-Laura McConwell, Mayor Mission Kansas

I just tried to call the part time mayor of Mission Kansas, Laura McConnell.  One of the hazards of running for US Congress is law enforcement officials that do not want a fiscal conservative like me to get elected because my promises related to their city not getting any earmarks from a candidate like myself.

So, this is one of the inherent risks of running for United States Congress.  Retaliation by local enforcement officials like that of Mayor Laura McConnell and her horrible Court Clerk.  Here is what Laura, mayor of Mission Kansas just wrote to me related to my being harrassed during the 2010 election cycle.

"Mr. Scherer - You need to communicate with the prosecutor regarding any negotiation you made, and your concern that it's not been followed. Thanks, Mayor McConwell"

I merely asked Laura to give me this prosecutor's phone number.  Which Laura refuses to provide completing the Catch 22.  Now this is a perfect example of some local official doing what is called a "burden shift." Shift the responsbility from their shoulders to someone else without giving sufficient information on how to accomplish what is suggested.

Here I am in Florida trying to get this harassment by the City of Mission Kansas resolved.  So naturally, first I go to the city manager of Mission Kansas, Mike Scanlon, my old nemesis when I first ran for city council back in 1998 against him in the city I used to live in-Merriam, Kansas.

Now Scanlon being the weasel he was and remains refuses to call me, or pick up the phone when I call him.  So, I send an email to his boss, the mayor, Laura McConwell.  To which she tells me to call someone else-the city prosecutor but refuses to give the attorney's phone number in several emails.

So, I want make this kind of bureaucratic nonsense made public.  Send Laura an email.

Here is her email address.  Tell her to stop being a bureaucrat because that is one of the many problems we all have to deal with far too often. 

Send her an email to: Laura McConwell, C/O City of Mission Kansas.  For Laura only comes to work some of the time.  Next on the bureaucrat list, Quinn Bennion, City Administrator, City of Prairie Village, Kansas.  For him and Laura must belong to the same club.  The Bureaucrat Club. 

Multiply this kind of bureaucracy all over America with every municipal government being exactly the same-messed up and bureaucratic-until it comes time for re-election. While the rest of us merely shout Tea Party Time.    

Obama and Scherer were at the White House Yesterday

Both President Obama and I were at the White House yesterday.  The President was relaxing upstairs; while I was trying to make America a better place downstairs.  The President certainly has some nice plants, some cool art and nifty furniture at his White House.  However, the President and I did not get to meet and talk to each other.  Which is unfortunate.

I merely wanted to tell the President to stop spending your money.  As well as tell him to get the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service to give me my federal tax credit the IRS owes me.  In fact, I tried to go inside the Treasury Building right next to the White House to ask Treasury Tim where is my money owed to me.

The Secret Service would not let me go talk to Treasury Tim which is also unfortunate.  And had I had that opportunity, I would have told both him and Obama to raise interest rates to get the national economy back on the right track of economic prosperity.  It is so fundamental.

Raise interest rates, banks will stop hoarding cash and loan businesss money again, requiring labor to be hired to rebuild our national infrastructure. A third grader could understand that.  Until interest rates are raised, our national economy is going to be a zero sum game of no economic prosperity, no jobs and more stagnation and deflation.

Frankly, there is huge list of  things I could have offered solutions to the President had he come downstairs and talked with me.  He did not.  So our federal governent  continues to be in the horrible mess it finds itself in. Naturally, this is due to the lack of statemen and way too many yahoo politicans. 

A statesman focuses on his nation, it's future economic prosperity and listens to the will of the people.  A politican merely focuses on elections.  So, maybe President Obama should have someone tell him this and instead of trying to get Dems that ruined our national economy re-elected, President Obama should stay at the White House and focus on fixing our federal government. 

Why he is spending so much time focused on the Novemember election is a complete waste of his time and merely indicates he is merely another politican and not a stateman. 

Obama misssed his chance to consult with me yesterday while I was at his White House.  If he wants to communicate with me on solutions for our federal government, he is going to have to fly to my house down here in Estero, FL.

I went to his house and he does not even come downstairs to say hi.

In Hell-Washington DC

Here am I in this hellhole, Washington DC.  Later today, I go to the White House.

I finished arguing with the Board of Veterans Appeals a case yestereday why it is my belief veterans that are successfiul on a remand are entitled to a reimbursement of costs based on the holding of the United States Supreme Court. (Both in Buchannon (2002) and reaffirming in Hardt (2007) that any party that prevails in implementing a material change in a legal relationship they have with a federal agency is entitled to a cost recovery and attorneys fees, when applicable. 

Since I did not use an attorney, that argument in my case about recovering attorney fees before the BVA is moot. The issue related to my real out of pocket costs is not moot and now is close to $20,000.

Naturally, if the BVA Judge Copeland rules adverse to my argument, then I take an appeal to the COVA, the Federal Circuit, and then once again try to docket a case with SCOTUS.  The last time I tried to docket with SCOTUS on a VA case was over what one word meant. 

The VA has a word called "expeditious".  Now my claim before the VA has been afforded this alleged "expeditious" treatment since 1998.  So what does that word mean to the VA regional offices that initially handle claims for benefits?

Basically, the word "expeditious" means to a VA regional office that a claims folder gets generous use of highlighter.  Does it mean claims get processed any faster?  No.  Which is ludicrious.  So, to have your claim marked expeditious means very little.  Sounds good but by effect, not much happens. 

Now my case was supposed to be the second on the morning docket.  So, I had to sit there waiting for over 3 hours.  Then, since the afternoon docket was supposed to be in only an hour, I was only afforded a grand total of one hour why vets are entitled to a cost recovery upon being successful upon a remand by the BVA of a claim remanded back to the VA regional offices. 

The only problem in my VA case is that I have been remanded nine times resulting in me prevailing, but never obtaining a cost recovery.  And now after yesterday, I am certain I am going to be remanded a 10th time.  Which is one reason the VA adjudication process is fubared.  Not only is this VA adudication process fubared, it costs the American taxpayers billions of dollars in redundant and repetitious claims that never seem to reach a final adjudication. 

Now when I was running for United State Congress, I polled a lot of people related to this horrible and long VA adjudication process.  I have been processing a claim with the VA since 1976.  Continuously without interuption since 1995.  Now the VA adjudication system is unlike the Social Security system that gives a person a scant three years to a final adjudication.  And if that does not happen, then an SSA application has the right to file a federal case. 

The VA system is  unlike the SSA system and can take a lifetime without ever getting a final adjudication.  Which is not only costly to the taxpayers, but absurd on its face.  The point is why? 

Now interested Vet support groups like the PVA, the DAV, the VFW, and the American Legion prefer this lifetime system of adjudicating VA claims.  Hence, this causes a huge backlog that each new VA Secretary promises to fix.  But these VA Secretaries come and go with each new VA Secretary who merely repeates the same rheotoric about somehow how they uniquely are going to fix the backlog of VA claims.  And they never do.

So, what I am asking the American taxpayer that pays for this outrageous claims process, if they understood how much this VA adjudication is costing them in their federal tax dollars would really be po if they found out how fubared and costly this system is.  The VA adjudication process is obtuse, broken and needs a major overhaul.  The only problem is that vet groups are going to ensure this system remains fubared and that there is never a final adjudication.

And the American taxpayers sit by silently.  They should not be so passive considering it is their money being spent.  And it is billions of dollars.  As a statesmen and as a congressional candidate, this system needs a major overhaul and the VA claims system needs a permanent fix.  There has to be an end to this never-ending VA adjudication process.  Modeled after the Social Security System.   And the net result would be a huge savings to the American taxpayers.

And is that not the function of a stateman?  To figure out what is best for all Americans regardless of any particular election.  A statemen focuses on many generations; whereas a politician only focuses on getting re-elected, now matter how much in costs we the people and our nation.  And too bad in America, we have way too many politicians and only a rare few statesman. 

It is incumbent that we ensure our focus, and the focus of the tea party patriots is that we continue to focus not on our own self-interest, but what is best for our nation and those generations that come after us-our future prosperty.

Speaking of our future prosperity, I go to the White House today.  Maybe I might get the chance to remind Obama and his staff they clearly forget our future prosperity is supposed to be his job as President of the United States.  And what I want to know, is why the current administration in the White House refuses to be statesmen and instead, keep acting like politicians.

The only good news I have, other than going to the White House, is I get to leave this hellhole called DC and return to FL later today.  Amen.  Thank you Jesus.

New Game-How to screw we the people some more!

I decided just for fun to pretend that I am some yahoo Democratic politican and my goal is to figure out how to raise money or reduce expenses for some federal, state, county or local government by any means necessary until progressive socialism has become the mindset of the public. 

So, being almost as creative as the Dem plans to take over 1/6th of the economy with Obamacare, crap and trap trying to tax or utilities for the air we breathe, and then giving our money to companies too big to fail (sallie, freddie, mortgage companies, banks and Wall St., How can I top this?

Anyway, my top ten creative plan to screw you, or better stated, we the people some more, here is my best at being even more ridiculus then the Democrats:.

No. 10-Charge everyone a tax of one cent every time they log into a social media company like Facebook or MySpace.

No. 9 Create a tax and give it a clever name like Saving America Tax or the Fair Tax (for the mortgage and banking industry) and only make it be on the poorest and middle class America as a sales tax on every purchase and service in America; but not the rich because even the Socialist Democrats do not want to mess with thier benefactors and crony contributors.

No. 8 Make anyone claiming any entitlements ever, to pay a 500% tax on any amount received including making it apply retroactive to the founding of our nation.

No. 7 Create a health care rationing plan called comparative medicine that operates on the principle if you are not working and are getting any federal entitlements, you get charged 20 times the normal rate. And if you are dying, 6900 times the normal rate.  We in the government do not want to pay for your lazy arse and would rather you die to get you off the public rolls.

No.6 Mandate for the insurance lobbyists, everyone including your pets must have a public health insurance policy or else you, your spouse, your children and your dog Spike will  be executed without notice.

No. 3 Raise Social Security retirement age to 150 and modify as necessary until no one is getting any.

No. 2.  Raise Medicare eligibility age to 700, just to be on the safe side.

No. 1 Tax taxes and install tolls booths at your home requiring you to pay tolls for every block driven as determined by government GPS tracking systems.

The next five willl be posted as soon as I can figure out a better progressive socialist con scheme ever considered in the entire history of mankind until everyone is a member of the Communist Party, comrade. Or merely wait until Nancy Pelosi calls me back with her new schemes to screw us all.

 I must think like a Democrat.

Scherer for Congress-2012-Florida's 14th Congressional Seat

I really had not intended to run for Congress again. 

Now, there are some folks in Florida that want me to change my mind and run in 2012 against Connie Mack, the congressman that married Sonny Bono's wife.  Naturally, I can understand why a lot of people want to get rid of Connie Mack since he lives most of the time in CA. So if I win this seat, my new campaign theme song will be "I got you babe." That way, this worthless Connie Mack can stay in CA all the time.  And stay out of FL and DC. 

Maybe he should spend more time taking care of people's business in Florida.  The current election cycle he ran unopposed in the primary and faces a dem candidate that has no chance whatsoever of winning any congressional seat.  I hesitate; but might as well file. 

Why?  To tick off a bunch of GOP loyalst emmings here in southern Florida.  Besides, what else do I have to keep me occupied?  Other than that case I am arguing in the hellhole of Washington Monday and the case I am arguing on behalf of Kansas homeowers that was just docketed with the Kansas Court of Appeals.  Or my challenging a FL statute that gives preferential and unequal treatment of some vets in FL.  Or a few other things. 

Now that I think of it, I am one busy dude.  But not that busy.  After I return from Hell (DC), expect me to file for the 2012 election cycle.  Why not is a better question.

This will probably be my last post for a few days.  I am going to be getting prepped for oral argument before the BVA.   Then, when I get back, onward to the KS Court of Appeals where hopefully I prevail in restoring Kansas homeowers rights to a de novo trial, including a jury of one's peers in their local state district court in the county in which they reside. 

I told many here I was the best candidate for US Congress.  It is real shame you are now stuck with Yodeling Yoder and the citizens of FL stand to gain the most. 

Later, tdus
