An entry of mine in a discussion on another blog:
You see ognir, in my opinion your view that my money is automatically designated for government use is a huge problem. The more of MY hard earned money I am forced to give to the government, the less freedom I have. It is proven again and again that by raising taxes you take away the incentive to earn money (and increase the incentive to cheat) and revenues go down. By lowering taxes financial activity increases and revenues grow. Now don’t get me wrong. I voted GW twice and was deeply disappointed. Probably for different reasons than what you have against him. Nevertheless, very disappointed. However, this trillion dollars deficit he left us with, is something we are all going to long for when Obama is done with us. we are going to have way, way higher deficit, while still paying way, way higher taxes. I know I am digressing, but in my opinion Obama will go down as a dictator who was democratically elected by a bunch of blind fans who were so busy hating GW, they would vote for anything that did not have R beside it. The hell with democracy, freedom and constitution. You may think I am a lun, but you will regretfully come to agree with me, and this will not take long. Though It may be too late for both of us.
A good entry from “gunnerdad” in sodahead.com on the question “Obama voters, do you regret Voting for Obama?”
I didn’t vote for him and neither did nearly 75% of the eligible voters.
Consider that the turnout was just over 50% of the voters. Pretty sad commentary for our Country. Then consider that BO got just over 50% of those people and JM got just under 50%. That means 50% of 50% voted for either party. So something like 28% of the “eligible” voters elected the President of the United States. Seems we may be getting what we deserve. As for the Bush haters…your Democratic Congress encouraged the banks to run their housing racket so people who shouldn’t have gotten loans to begin with. And someone started the run on the money market funds that started the melt down in September that got BO elected. And as usual it all got away from them and our children and grand-children will have to pay for all of these Trillions he’s going to spend trying to spend our way out of the mess we’re in.
You should all be worried. Just like the latest vote from Congress in placing a 90% tax on the few people from AIG. Your group may be next if this stands. The whole point of all that is to draw everyones attention from the fact that 55 Billion Dollars of the bailout money went to overseas banks to cover AIG’s debts. That’s 55 Billion of US taxpayers money that just went bye bye with absolutly no chance of any gain for us. Those bonuses are less than 1% of that money but oh are we making a deal about that. What about the other 99%?
I pray I am wrong but I fear we will all suffer because we (you) elected a rock star…not a President. God Bless America and ALL who Defend Her

It is not un-American to fight to preserve our rights against tyrannical government. (See the quote at the bottom of this post.) The 2nd Amendment clearly intended to make sure citizens will have the means to do exactly that. However, I have a different issue here. As much as I hate it, more than 50% of Americans voted for that anti-American and corrupt president – Obama. So the question is, is the minority justified in fighting the will of the majority? Bear in mind that the constitution has been gradually eroded for decades. The only difference is that the new administration continues in the erosion set forth, in a much faster pace than before. Everybody was agreeable with constitutional erosion for decades (except for ranting), and several periods of republican majority were not used to un-erode the constitution or to strengthen it agains further erosion by adding amendments and improving existing amendments. Maybe it is just the nature of the beast – that a constitution focused on giving the power to the people, will be eroded by power-grabbing politicians. (Which politicians are by definition power grabbers.) And by definition there will always be enough people who prefer to rely on government that will let politicians grab power. Maybe this amazing experiment in liberty has come to its end? Maybe the only solution (other than giving up) is a separation to two countries – a liberal and a constitutional? Given the results of the several previous elections that were so close to 50:50, could it be that we already are two separate countries?

In 2002, Michelle Obama was hired by the University of Chicago Medical Center. Her job was to run programs for community relations, neighborhood outreach, volunteer recruitment, staff diversity and minority. Her salary for this position was $120,000.00
In 2005 the Medical Center raised her salary to $317,000.00, for a $197,000.00 raise, nearly twice what her hubby made as a U.S. Senator. Mr. obama became a senator in 2004 and he requested and received a $1,000,000.00 earmark from the Federal Government (our money) for the University of Chicago Medical Center. Good Networking !
In 2007, Ms. obama resigned her job to help her hubby campaign. The hospital has said that her position will remain unfilled.
How could this happen, if a person’s position is so vital to a hospital that they would pay her $317,000.00 and not be replaced ?
This is the couple that does not believe in “Earmarks”, Right !
