Big Government…….petty people

When did this happen? When did “the people” become Big Government’s enemy and target? The upper echelons are so fearful of dissent and being exposed for their ham handed ways they trample all over the First Amendment rights of the citizens calling people “mentally disturbed“. The only disturbing thing is the targeting of citizens by a government gone rogue. When people of the media march in unison to the White House to get their talking points, there is a problem. When the IRS can use its power to intimidate dissenters, it’s a problem. When Big Government can decide certain media can be targeted, it’s a problem. When elected officials and their staff are above the laws they pass, it’s a problem. Obama is just a result of the problem, he’s too stupid to actually govern. That governing stuff is hard. Our government is run by petty people doing their level best to silence those opposed to Big Government and its overreaching into every single aspect of our daily lives.

I was in such a snit yesterday, spent the whole day furiously pulling weeds, getting the garden ready for veggie planting. The previous night, at an orientation meeting for a grant, a city worker in my ward decided to assume I am a R-word. The reasoning behind this statement was beyond illogical. Because I am “confident”, “well off”, use words of more than one syllable to communicate, I must be a R-word. What?!? I very politely told her I am a registered D-word. Her assumption is based on nothing more than what she has heard about me and the extent I will go to right a wrong. How dare anyone go up against  the D-word city government by using their rights as a citizen. Thinking outside the box is not allowed and creative use of the very entities established to protect our rights is frowned upon. One does not call the Police Commissioner when a bad decision is made that will negatively impact our district. No one should have the audacity to file a complaint with the State Attorney General against a city run entity that refuses to address a problem. There comes a time when you have to stand your ground and wake the pols up and make them face reality. Being so attached to any political party that one goes along blindly with everything they do and believe is not my cup of TEA. We all should be proud of those who dissent without violence, who believe in the Bill of Rights and are willing to stand up against an aggressive government, and the pols, that do everything in their power to shut down Freedom of the Press and Free Speech.    “Isn’t it ironic that the Tea Party now stands for the rule of law and that elements of the United States government and the Washington establishment have become the rogue, criminal element in America?”

Foreign banks receiving the largesse of QEternity. They hold over One trillion in government reserves thanks to Bernanke.

Uh-oh, Trumka is on a tear.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka issued a blistering statement on Hatch’s  amendments Tuesday afternoon, calling them “unambiguous attacks on American  workers,” as the federation vowed to fight them on the Senate floor

As if the flagging support from the AFL-CIO on the illegal immigration bill wasn’t enough, BO also is losing the Unions due to Obamacare. I guess the “we have to pass the bill for you to see what’s in it” meme lost it charm.

Labor unions are breaking with President Obama on ObamaCare.

Months after the president’s reelection, a variety of unions are publicly  balking at how the administration plans to implement the landmark law. They warn  that unless there are changes, the results could be catastrophic.

Lois Lerner isn’t the “innocent victim” of oversight. Her days at the FEC are much the same as her tenure at the IRS.

Insisting Lerner, and the IRS more broadly, were not not politically  motivated has been a central contention of those trying to minimize the  impact of the scandal.

The trouble with this defense is that, prior to joining the IRS,  Lerner’s tenure as head of the Enforcement Office at the Federal  Election Commission (FEC) was marked by what appears to be politically  motivated harassment of conservative groups.

NannyBloomberg gets nasty…threatens Taxi owner

Mayor Bloomberg went on a spitting-mad rant against a city cab-fleet boss who won a court victory over Hizzoner’s planned “Taxi of Tomorrow” — vowing to “destroy your f–king industry” when he leaves office

  1. -resident BO needs to face reality…..a very large segment of the Islamic religion hates us and has said explicitly they want to destroy the West. He just opened the door to all kinds of nasty.

  2. The IG investigating the IRS told the Senate he has found another problem but can’t report on it until the investigation is completed.
    Why am I not surprised?

  3. Prog heckler Medea Benjamin of Code Pink given the floor at Preezy speech

  4. So, the TEA Party is right…..read it all

    [Alexander Hamilton and America’s Founders designed the unitary executive for the purpose of political accountability. It is one of the Constitution’s main virtues. Unlike grunts in Cincinnati, Presidents must face the voters. That accountability was designed to extend not only to the President’s inner circle but over the entire branch of government whose leaders he chooses and whose policies bear his signature.

    If the President isn’t accountable, then we really have the tea party nightmare of the runaway administrative state accountable to no one. If Mr. Obama and his aides are to be taken at their word, that is exactly what we have.]

  5. It makes sense both economically and environmentally….so, let’s not do it. /

    [The State Department, which has completed more than 15,000 pages of environmental review on the proposed pipeline over the years, said in a draft report this spring that the project was unlikely to cause significant environmental impact to most resources along the planned route. The report also said other options to move the oil from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries, such as trucks or rail cars, would be far worse for climate change.]

  6. The IRS, EPA, Labor and Interior furloughed Friday…..now that is a good thing. Four of the most contentious arms of government out of the office until Tuesday…..can’t cause any damage to anyone else if they aren’t there.

  7. Obama’s drone speech welcomed — in terror havens of Pakistan, Yemen…. well, that speech plus the billions we give them

  8. Nuff said…..
    Terrorism analysts are rebutting President Obama’s assertion that the “scale of the threat” from Islamic terrorists has reverted to pre-Sept. 11, 2001, levels.

    “This is a total fabrication,” said Steven Emerson, whose Investigative Project on Terrorism tracks radical Islam. “The ‘scale of this threat’ in the 1990s never closely resembled the terrorist attacks post 9/11. This is an outright lie.”
