ARE THINGS REALLY ADDING UP?

1. In recent polls, if you believe in such things, it has been determined, that Arabs and their little screwed up countries, were supporting Obama, in his bid to be president.
And now we find out, that Muslims, world wide, are supporting President Obama, at least for now. Their support, seems to be predicated on the hope, that President Obama, will do what the last ten presidents would not do, and that is, remove support for the State of Israel.
President Obama, has made some statements, from the beginning of his candidacy, and right up to being sworn in, as president, that seems to suggest, at least in the eyes of the Media and the Arab world, that his support for Israel is running soft.
Time will tell on this issue, but citizens every where, need to understand, that Arab Countries have no problem lying about events, and carrying out threats on the world, with a good dose of intimidation. And if President Obama, allows that to happen, and does not set them straight on Israel, citizens everywhere can take up the cause of sending him to live with the Arab country of his choice. Arab Countries claim to be a friend of the United States, but no one should be misled.
They are not our friends and never have been. Can you say 9/11? And remember, that act was applauded throughout the Arab world.
There are no Arabs, as nations or governments, that can be counted on as our friends. As long as we are able to buy their oil, and feed them, they will pay with token handshakes and call it “being your friend”. But all must remember, that if we do not change our policy against Israel, which we should not do, they will continue to be our enemy in the dark alleyways of the world, looking for opportunity to inflict a tragedy upon us.

2. In President Ronald Reagan’s address in 1981, he said, “In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
Now if one reads President Obama’s address, there is strong implication, that Americans do not have real problems, they are the problem. And when he said “Childish things” what was he referring to? Is it a stretch to suggest the President is either blind to the problems, lacks sufficient experience to make a determination on his own, or has turned over the decision making part of his presidency to the old Clinton guard?
Pelosi and Reid, when they came to power, went to the national media for interviews and said; “give us one hundred days and we will solve the problems.” They were given more than one hundred days, and here is what they have produced: Business failure, government bailouts, cover-ups, distrust and corruption.
Would it be safe to say, those members of the congress that voted for Pelosi and those of the Senate that voted for Reid, are the problem and not the solution? And if they continue supporting what Reid and Pelosi are proposing, we may never be able to solve our problems until the next election and even then that could be a big “maybe“.

3. Now with all the talk about a fix on our economy by President Obama and the experts in Washington, along comes someone who seems to be in touch with reality. The chairman of the Morgan Stanley Asia Group, Stephen Roach concludes that without some new plans, not the same old plans of tax and spend, or printing more money, but some new economic plans that may even include, dare we say, “tax breaks”, we are doomed for the next year or so. We will see more job loss, more business write offs, fewer business starts, the home markets bleeding profits and workers, and a significant push in the deficit spending world, more than we are doing now.
If Mr. Roach can see this, why can’t others in Washington see it. Perhaps the unthinkable, is the next reality. Can anyone say depression?

THREE THOUGHTS

Item 1: Once again, the best laid plans of mice and men, have not come to pass. Not that specific plans were not good, but there are and were organizations that people forgot, would use their clout with the court, to impede the desires of the people. Because these organizations are selfish, uncaring, and more interested in their personal agendas, therefore, they are willing to lie, mislead, and stonewall the truth. There is trouble ahead. So who are these organizations, that stand in the way of America getting away from dependence on foreign oil?
The ever meddler known as the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. Most of those involved are neither living in Southern Utah, or are long term Utah Citizens. For the most part they are outsiders. Along with this group, you will find the Wilderness Society, with their narrow view of what wilderness should be. Then on top of this stands the National Resource Defense Council. Another group of misfits, who are unable to mix and mingle with the rest of humanity.
Now all these groups have found a weak link, in the list of Federal Judges, and with this, you have all the ingredients, to keep this country tied to the Middle East. Based on the current findings of this Federal Judge, he is looking for excuses to legislate from the bench.
The score so far, is one for the bad guys and zero for the rest of us.

Item 2: Who out in the political world would have thought, that after the election in the fall of 2008, the people would still not have representation in congress and the country would still be going down rather that up. And if you are one of those, that thought your political party was going to look after you, you have just arrived from the twilight zone. The Democrats have lied through their teeth on the issues, along with how they are going to solve the various problems. And the Republicans, have sat on their hands, with their mouths closed, as we see the scariest duo in the history of this planet. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have a deal for citizens, that only will lead this country into bankruptcy at least and into a serious depression at worst.
The incoming president, may be a good man, with desires to do good, but he lacks experience and because of this weakness, he will be exploited by his own party, lead by queen Nancy and King Harry. With the assistance of the Barney Franks and the Charles Schumers of the house and senate, these two are now poised to sell, trade, and generally destroy this county and turn us into a Country Like France or worse, maybe China. We are living in scary times, and Nancy and Harry are leading us into a real house of horrors. And the Republicans, are quiet, unknowing, and looking if they are uncaring. And before you suggest, they are a minority party, think for one minute, what minority parties have done in the past. Can anyone say medicare?
Score zero for the future and two for stupidity in the present.

Item 3: And just when you think you have heard it all, a long comes other people, who has no idea about the real world, because they live in the shadowy world of make believe, where everything is scripted. Where they, the participants, are told what to believe, how to believe and when. Tom Hanks, an actor, who has a real problem living in the real world, makes a stupid, uneducated statement about the what the people in California voted to do.
Mr. Hanks, trying to act like, someone who lives in the real world, says that those who voted in the Proposition 8 election, if they voted to say marriage is between a man and a woman, they are un-American. What a stupid conclusion. But then again what do you expect from someone, who does not understand reality, who life is scripted from morning to night.
Mr. Hanks wins the “IMBICEIL OF THE WEEK” award.

Sorry to say, there will be others.
