Dear Mr. President....

Dear Mr. President,

I want, no…need, to make some observations that you, perhaps due to your busy life, have possibly not noticed.  At least, I hope you have not noticed…because if you had AND continue to treat the American people as you do…there is but one conclusion to be made of your character.

Many have called you incompetent….I wish it were that simple to explain away your presidency.

Many have called you a socialist (or Marxist)…while the evidence supporting such claims mounts daily, and while such claims may well be true, I suspect that is not the principal purpose driving your actions.

Many have called you a liar. Indeed I have done so on many occasions…and I would do so to your face should I be unfortunate enough to ever meet you. In my opinion, sir, you are a disgrace to the office of President, and the contempt you hold for the American people is breathtaking in its arrogance.

Many, including myself, have called you a fool. A puppet…with no moral compass you are directionless, being blown wherever the winds of liberal progressive popularity blow. Sir, a man with no moral compass is a man who is no leader.  A man (or woman) holding the highest office in the land must be first and foremost a leader, capable of encouraging his country and leading them forward through the tempests that threaten every day.  Without a moral compass your leadership has left America not knowing where she is going or why.

Many have said you are a narcissist. A sentiment I truly agree with.

And while all of these things are true in one way or another, and to varying degrees….they are but the breeding ground for the nastiest ideas you can summon.

The nastiest of these is the idea that America is beholden to others for what she is now.

What’s that, sir? You believe America is a great nation, offering opportunity to all?
I’m sorry, Mr. President, but isn’t it you who said that if you own a business, you didn’t build that? I hear you trying to explain the context of that comment…trying to walk it back…but the fact is that you said it…and it can’t be unsaid.

But of course, you really meant that government assistance was a large part of the reason for that person’s success. That every successful businessman should acknowledge that and give back.

Give back?

Give back?

Let me see, sir. The government has no money of its own so it takes from the businessman the money that is needed to build the roads, the bridges, the infrastructure that the businessman needs to be successful. So what exactly is the businessman expected to “give back”? What has he received from the government that he has not already paid for? What is the free gift that he has received that he should be giving back?

Mr. President…I do believe that you have screwed the pooch well and truly on this one. Your insistence that you meant something different is of no influence in the real world. You see, sir, the only person I know of who has built something (or at least owned something) that was built by someone else is…you!

You had someone teach you. You had someone else get you into Harvard. You had someone else get you into the Illinois Senate. And you had someone else to get you into the federal senate…and someone else to get you into the Presidency. The truth, sir, is that you did none of that for yourself…someone else did it.

So, what about America. Did she become the nation she is? Or did someone else do it? Is her greatness the result of the hard work of millions of people both past and present…or it the result of unknown faces who designed and built the ships that carried the founders to our shores? Perhaps it was the government of England that financed the journeys to the new worlds, the journeys of discovery, that are responsible for the greatness of America? Or maybe it was Galileo discovering the movement of the stars…or the ancient Vikings who mastered the art of seafaring?
No…you are a fool…the greatness of America is due to the hard work, inventiveness, creativeness and indomitable spirit of the pioneers, the adventurers, the entrepreneurs and the businessman toiling every day over two hundred years of effort, blood, sweat and tears.

Effort that you know nothing of.

Effort that is rewarded by words from the empty suit occupying the White House telling those folk that they didn’t do it.

You sir, are leading this country to an entitlement society. By degrading the efforts of those who made this country great, you are applauding the efforts of the ones that did not participate in that greatness. By telling us there are plenty of smart people “out there”…you are taking away from that inventiveness and creativity that moves a man from being an employee to being an employer. His smarts, his creativeness, his inventiveness is no different to anyone else you say….yeah right! If that was the case everybody would be a successful businessman. The truth is that no matter how much you want it to be otherwise…the world will always reward the exceptional in ways different to how it rewards the average.

And you, Mr President, make the case that the unexceptional are entitled to a share of the rewards freely given to the exceptional.

Are you truly insane?

Under the guise of  “giving back” you want to take from the achievers  and give to the under-achievers through various entitlement programs.

Mr. President….one question?

Is America a land of opportunity?...or a land of entitlements?

He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American.

“Everything he’s done is clean as a whistle. He’s never not only broken any law, he’s never done anything wrong. He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy. And it’s impossible for me to believe they would have said the same thing about a Walter Mondale or a Jimmy Carter or a Bill Clinton. There’s an ethnic piece to this. It’s very hard to nail it down because they always cover it in ideology. But I’ve never heard anybody in this country call its opponent regularly anti-American or non-American.”
                                                                              Chris Mathews, MSNBC, July 17 2012

No media bias?

Let’s dissect this guy’s comments for a moment…and I will try to keep away from jokes about tingles up legs and so forth…although from the sounds of what he said, that tingle has grown into a full blown fit!

First sentence. “Everything he’s done is clean as a whistle.”

Really? I consider myself a pretty straight-up guy, but I can honestly tell you that not everything I have done is clean as a whistle. What’s more I do not know of anyone who would even claim that as a truth. It is simply preposterous that this insane and pathetic journalist should posit such a statement about the Liar-in-Chief, Obama.

But it gets worse…
“He’s never not only broken any law, he’s never done anything wrong.”

Are you serious? He has admitted his drug use on many occasions. That was illegal. So right off the bat, Chris Mathews, your statement is shown to be a complete fabrication, a complete lie. Obama has admitted his law breaking past. We do not need to go any further than that to show you have no idea about this man. Only Jesus Christ was without sin…are you really trying to put this fool on a pedestal like that? Laughable. Your three viewers would certainly see through this feeble lie…and now you have even less viewers…I wonder why that could be.

“He’s the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American.”
Now I am truly going to throw up. Just where did you get this insight Mr Mathews? You state opinion as fact, and have nothing to back it up with. Just for your information and education…”perfect” is a very high barrier to obtain. I know of no-one who has even come close to perfection as a father…or a husband…or as an American. To attain that lofty goal “perfection” in all 3 of these areas denotes a person who has already obtained divinity….are you saying that Obama is indeed Jesus Christ, or maybe you are claiming he is God?

“There’s an ethnic piece to this. It’s very hard to nail it down because they always cover it in ideology. But I’ve never heard anybody in this country call its opponent regularly anti-American or non-American.”

Oh, here we go again. The only reason you can find to explain why we conservatives do not like this guy is race…and the truth is that we care nothing about race. We care if he was not born in America in the same way that we would care if he was half white (instead of half black?) and could have been born in New Zealand. It has nothing to do with color. Only you and the ignorant left have ever thought that skin color was important.


Here are the facts Mr. Mathews.

Obama is everything you charge the conservatives with.

He is a liar, a deceiver, and a fool.
He is a racist, a socialist and a divider.
He believes in government, and the cronyism of the elite, not the creativeness and greatness of the individual.
He is a narcissist quite willing to throw friends and enemies alike under the nearest bus if that will support his political agenda.
Is he a good father? I struggle to see how a narcissist and political beast who consistently lies can possibly be a good father. I hear his words…I fail to see the actions.

Is he a good husband? I have no idea…and neither do you. When I see the scowls on their faces, I have to wonder…but then, who am I to judge. It is not my place, nor my concern, to make that judgment.

Is he a good American? Would a good American lead the country into a socialist regime, follow policies that are known to fail and open borders to illegal immigration? Would a good American bow down to any who stand before him? Would a good American refuse to protect her borders?

A good American? I call BS on that one!

This rant of Mathews is bad enough if it were just designed to incite angst among those on the right. If it were a dramatic play to create controversy it would be one thing.

But this guy seems to actually believe the crap that spews from his mouth…and that is very disconcerting.

Because his three viewers might also believe it.

And they might tell their two friends.

And before too long you might have 6 people believing it!

But that is the thing about the left….the truth is not important to them at all. Political ex[pediency trumps truth every time.

For their friends they will make outlandish statements with no hint of fact…knowing that the unthinking masses will simply swallow…for their political foes, they make up whatever story they like and put it out there…knowing that their followers will gulp it down with nods and knowing smiles…they just know that all this stuff is true.

You know friends, one thing I have discovered in my years on this earth is that truth has a way of eventually coming out. It is very difficult to keep it hidden for a long time. The harder a person tries to suppress it, the more lies are needed…and sooner or later the truth WILL emerge.

People like Chris Mathews are irrelevant….but they represent a group of people who can be categorized in one of two ways:-

-          They care not whether something is true or not. They care only that it meets their predetermined ideas and that it advances their agenda
-          They are too stupid to know the difference

Unfortunately we have many media personalities who fall into the first category. And many voters who fall into the second.

We have a fight on our hands…make no mistake.

You didn't build your business...somebody else did!

"If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
                                                                                                   Obama, July 2012

Well, sir…just who was it that built the business? Was it the guy pan-handling on the street corner, wanting me to give him my money that I worked for? Maybe it was the doped up welfare queen eating Cheeto’s while watching “Days of our Lives”?

No…maybe it was the poor uninformed consumer who had no alternative to buy my product/service because I was holding a gun to his head? He clearly didn’t want what I was selling…he must have been forced to buy it, right?

Just who are you referring to when you say “somebody else made it happen?”

Did this mysterious somebody else spend 18 hours a day 7 days a week on a starvation diet while putting every ounce of energy into creating a business, creating jobs, taking risks? Point him or her out to me and I will gladly shake his hand and say thank-you….of course, if someone was doing that for MY business I suspect I would already have noticed him or her…and I didn’t!

Oh….I get it. You are talking about that great teacher we had in 6th grade that taught us how to spell entrepreneur, right? Ok…so, if I recall, there were other students in that class who all learned the same thing…;.so why is that they aren’t also wealthy business owners? If that teacher was the help along the way, why did only 1 of us become successful?

So no…it was not the great teacher….but it may have been the great student!

So, now you are talking about the infrastructure that government created…the roads and bridges…so now it is government that made my business a success? And that it was the taxes of every other income earner that built the infrastructure that made my business a success?

Yes, the government has been stealing money from Peter for decades…and used the guise of infrastructure as the curtain behind which their giving to Paul has been hidden. Those infrastructure programs were wealth redistribution programs…nothing else.  The roads, the bridges, the infrastructure would have been built without any government interference…and probably at a much lower cost to the economy…if they were needed by the producers. The fact that the government did this did not help my business at all…in fact the taxes on my business have in fact stifled my growth, not enabled it.

You, Mr. President are a fool.

As to your final argument that it was the people before us who created the environment where a business could prosper that helped us. I can actually agree with you on this point. It was the founders understanding that a man has the right to create his own destiny free of the shackles of government interference that created the opportunity that business owners continue to invest in today.

Too bad you don’t believe the same way!

To you, government is the only way business can succeed. This is in complete opposition to what the founders believed, to what they fought and died for, to what they created the rule of law to protect. The very constitution that you trample on every day, is the thing that assists small business.

And by your daily actions, sir, you show your disdain for it.

Hypocrite is too polite a term for you. Snake in the grass is closer. Slithering, blithering, tyrannical fool is closer yet.

But, sir, do you know what is even worse?

That you have a group of sycophant followers that believe every lie from your mouth. The fools who follow you blindly, believing the poison you and you ilk spew on a daily basis. why does he say stuff like this when he knows that it is not true?

Class warfare. He is setting up a run at higher taxes on the rich…arguing that the wealthy did not get there through their own toil…that they were lucky to have all the help from all the people of the world who chose to make their business a success. And now it is time to pay back that assistance…it is time to pay the piper…the government that made it all happen.

Refer to my last post about a wealth tax…and my numerous posts about the Divider-in-Chief and his policies to set Americans against Americans.

He knows he cannot remain President of a United Nation…his only chance is to divide based on race, wealth, sexual preference and any other characterization he can find. He continually incites Americans to hate…to hate whites, to hate the wealthy, to hate the haters. This man who promised hope and change, unit, and the most transparent government ever known to this country has delivered nothing but angst, hate, division and rancor.

And now he is trying to take away your freedom. He tells you that you cannot be successful without government assistance. He tells you that your employer’s wealth is a result of stealing from you, or government assistance. He tells you that you cannot succeed without government.

The Liar-in-Chief has overstepped even his own ignorant and selfish desires now.

He is a tyrant who WILL destroy any freedom you have left if he gets another 4 years.

Don’t let him!

Let's tax the wealthy!

My favorite subject!


Oh how I love to discuss this political hot potato…in fact, almost as much as the Liar-in-Chief, Obama loves to use it as the lever to advance his agenda.

Has anyone else noticed how Obama, when he talks of taxes, talks of taxing the wealthy. Sure, he also talks in terms of those families earning over $250k…but most of his rhetoric is about the wealthy.

Why does he do this?

I think there a couple of reasons.

Firstly, wealth is a very subjective term. To an individual living on food stamps, or homeless, wealth is a very low barrier…perhaps even having enough money to buy your next meal would be considered wealth.

To the blue collar worker struggling to pay his mortgage, wealth could be having his mortgage paid off and enough money left for a simple retirement.

An entrepreneur may measure wealth in the millions of dollars, while a successful entrepreneur may measure it in tens or hundreds of millions of dollars.

By talking in terms of wealth, this President knows that he can capture the hearts and minds of the jealous without having to define anything. He is relying on the lowest possible interpretation of wealth to ensure his constituents agree with him. After all, most people will measure wealth in terms of what they don’t have…not in terms of what they COULD have. SO wealth becomes a weapon… a weapon for turning the voter against the person who has more than them….I have another name for this…class warfare…and the warfare is aimed at anyone who has more than you do.

Of course, one could simply argue that Obama does not know the difference between income and wealth…but that argument is complete BS (and if it were true, we have a total idiot in the white house!...oh yeah…we do!)

What I will concede is that Obama knows that MOST of his followers, those who cry when he gives a speech, those who fawn over every deceitful word that emanates from his lying ass, …yes, those followers do NOT know the difference between wealth and income.

There is no wealth tax in this country (yet…I will get to that in a minute)…with the exception of the inheritance tax that say “you’re dead now…so you don’t need it…the government may as well use it to buy more votes”.

In this country you are taxed on income…so it should not matter how wealthy you are…the only method used for taxation is how much you earn.

Now, for those who still do not grasp the difference…I will explain carefully:-

Wealth is the accumulation of assets, money, stocks, artwork, jewelry, etc . If you own your own business, the value of that business is included as your wealth. If you have loans or borrowings, that is deducted from your assets to give net wealth.

On the other hand, income is what you earn a living at. It does not include your savings (but does include interest on those savings). It does not include your investments (but does include any dividends you may receive.)

Wealth can be accumulated. Income cannot.

A retired factory worker with a GED can have much greater wealth than a professional with multiple degrees. How? Perhaps he invested wisely throughout his life, lived within his means and saved his money for his now very comfortable retirement.

On the other hand, the professional lived on credit cards, enjoying the good life and has no assets to his name at the end of his career even though he was in the $250k and more family income that Obama talks about.

So now we see why Obama is talking about wealth an awful lot these days….it is more than just creating class warfare…it is setting the stage for an additional tax base.

You see, if the government instituted a wealth tax, it would be taxing the accumulated good habits of the retired factory worker…and the government could get its hands on a portion of that money. The wasteful  professional is still getting taxed on his $250k each year so the government is happy with what they are stealing from him...but as you know…when it comes to taxes the government is never happy.

I believe that Obama is preparing the way for the introduction of a wealth tax, which he will push through in his second term of office should America be so foolish as to elect him.

The signs are there. He has already even tested the waters with a repatriation wealth tax levied on folks who choose to live outside the USA and who choose to give up their citizenship. It is a tax of around 33% of their net wealth if they choose to do this. It is a final attempt to steal from Peter before he leaves for a better life. And at…how would YOU like to have 33% of everything you own taken away from you?

While I do not expect a wealth tax of 33%, I do expect we will see something in the vicinity of 3% to 5%...but remember that this will be levied EVERY year. People living on the income from their investments (wealth) will find their wealth eroding every year….being taxed on both the income and the asset.

Yep…there is definitely method in Obama’s madness….and he understands fully that if he can confuse the relationship between wealth and income, if he can divide the population into you and the wealthy, if he can talk about taxing the wealthy….he will be able to slip a wealth tax into your future.

And you will never know what hit you. The average person will not oppose this because they think it will be taxing someone else…it will never dawn on them that they are also firmly in the sights of this rabid tax and spend Liar.

The ultimate outcome of a wealth tax is that more and more people will refuse to live wisely…they will waste their money on baubles…the savings and investment levels will decrease…and the economy will eventually stall…worse than ever before seen.

This is the plan…because by then it will be too late….most people will be tied to the government teat for the daily sustenance…and that is exactly what Obama wants.

Can this happen in the next four years…possibly…particularly if the wealth tax is set at a high enough level.

We live in dangerous times, friends. Whenever a President starts changing the meaning of words, starts interchanging words, starts manipulating words…you know that his agenda is not good for you.

The Liar0in0Chief was doing that before he was elected….

How is that “hope and change” thing doing for you?
