Return to Common Sense

June 9, 2012


Government - "Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.Ronald Reagan.

Politics – The TEA Party movement is alive and well in Wisconsin as residents were offended and angered that the far left invaded their state to overturn the voice of the people.

Politics – The Wisconsin recall defeat was a “Wake-Up Call, America!” and a leading indicator of November election results, because real “Change Is Coming!

Politics – Under threat of a Marxist takeover in a second Obama term, Romney presents no rough edges to distract the public from seeing Obama’s ongoing deconstruction of the U.S.

Politics – Voter Question:How did that vote for Obama work out for you? Are you better off today than when Barack Obama was elected? Is he making the economy better or worse?

Total Employment – The best that Obama can hope for is that by the end of his term that the number of people working finally increases to the same level as when he first took office!

Politics The effort to distract the country from Obama’s indefensible record with distractions such as a Republican war on women, a papist plot against access to contraception, legal semantics about same-sex relationships, and other red herrings, has failed.

Media – Once again the mainstream media revealed their partisan bias by downplaying or ignoring the inconvenient poll results in Wisconsin that foretold the recall defeat for months.

Media – Newspapers continue to hemorrhage readers with only political ads in the 2012 election to save them, but I expect many newspapers will disappear after the next election.

Politics I expect that the 2012 Presidential election will be the most racist campaign, with baseless accusations used to distract voter attention from Obama’s record of failure.

Politics – Now that the Republican Party has settled on Mitt Romney, I expect that the TEA Party members will vote for him in November, but leave the Party to become Independents.

Socialism - The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]. Margaret Thatcher.

Energy – The Department of Commerce recently imposed anti-dumping tariffs on Chinese producers of solar energy equipment despite U.S. subsidies of green-energy companies.

Environment – Alabama has been the first state to pass a law that bans the U.N. Agenda 21 sovereignty surrender infringing or restricting private property rights without due process.

Labor – In Wisconsin, voters sent a message to the nation’s public-sector unions that financial reform can no longer be indefinitely deferred, marking the first step back to fiscal sanity.

Labor – In Wisconsin, the impact of labor reforms not to require union membership or dues paying has resulted in AFSCME membership declining by half and AFT losing over a third.

Healthcare – Repealing ObamaCare will resurrect call for much needed reforms: conversion to defined benefit plans, restructure tax treatment, open marketplace, and tort reform.

Abortion – Using contraception and abortion as birth control supports the liberal objective of selective social engineering to implement Darwinian “unnatural selection” (eugenics).

Debt I expect that the country’s credit rating will again be downgraded after Congress debt ceiling discussions again fail to find sufficient spending cuts to halt deficit spending.

DeficitI expect one or more states to declare bankruptcy by 2012 and seek assistance to recover from the bad economic decisions of the past under federal judicial protection.

Housing I expect that it will take four or more years at the current rate for the backlog of foreclosures to finally clear, before we see any signs of life of a robust housing recovery.

Government – “It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time. Winston Churchill.

GWOT – The Obama administration is holding hundreds of closed-door meetings with jihad linked lobbying groups plotting strategies and actions to appease Islamic apologists.

Israel I expect that Israel will be attacked by Hamas again in 2012 and the IDF will retaliate by invading and then annexing Gaza based on the concept of defensible borders.

Israel – I expect that Israel will suffer a nuclear attack from Islamist extremists by 2012, and Obama will stand aside and not help defend this longtime ally.

Asia – I expect that North Korea will attack South Korea and attempt to reunite Korea by the 2012, and Obama will be an unwitting accomplice as he abandons this ally in a time of war.
