There are only two things in this world that I can't stand...people who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch.
  • Why are we......? 54 comments
    Aug 24, 2009 7:46 PM


    I've thought of a few things lately that have me miffed. Perhaps some of the liberal readers can enlighten me.

    Why are we prosecuting the people who kept our country safe from terrorist attacks?

    Why are we taking over the entire healthcare system when less than 10% of the population has no insurance?

    Why are we contemplating enormous new taxes on energy?

    Why are we contemplating huge new regulations on refiners that will drastically reduce our refining capacity?

    Why are we not drilling in every corner of our country for oil that we have?

    Why are we not converting cars to NG?

    Why are we not building 100's of new nuclear power plants?

    Why are we thinking about rationing healthcare?

    Why are so many marxists and socialist becoming Czars?

    Why are we spending ourselves into slavery?

    Why are the Democrats so smug about the bills that they are passing without reading?

    Maybe some of you can help me complete this exercise in citizenship. Add your "why's" to the list.

    And I'm not quibbling against any bullets you wrote.

    We all know the answer to your questions but we're just waiting for a liberal to answer them. The problem is: they can't answer those questions. Remember the old adage: "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem?" They're still basking in the glow of their recent victory and don't even recognize that there are any problems. All they know is their guy is now in the White House and everything is getting better really fast because that's what the talking heads tell them.

     

    BO will solve all there problems soon enough and you an I can pay the bill.

    How about this one YH:

     

    Why Are We Letting The Same Fraud That Started The Collapse Continue?

     

    Check This:

     

    USA Today - Remember me? Wall Street repackages debt for sale
    www.usatoday.com/money...

     

    "In recent months investment banks have been repackaging old mortgage securities and offering to sell them as new products, a plan that's nearly identical to the complicated investment packages at the heart of the market's collapse."

     

    Apparently Not Much Has Changed And Derivatives Are Back In Fashion:

    Why are we leaving our borders wide a$$ open.

     

    Why are we allowing illegals to have babys here and then giving them citizenship.

     

    Why are we spending billions in Brazil creating jobs there but not here.

     

    Why are we not energy independent.

     

    Why are we sending 700 billion to countries that dont like us. EVERY YEAR!!

     

    Why are we still electing corrupt politicians.

     

    Why are we still re-election corrupt politicians.

     

    Why are we giving up states rights to the federal govt.

    Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank. Three of the most influential people in politics in the largest country in the free world. That explains a lot. There are clips on youtube of Pelosi giving a speech several months ago. She gave the same speech in three different locations. Each time she said, "Every month five hundred million Americans lose their jobs." I mean, after she had been corrected she still said it. And she is third in line for the Presidency. Even the libs know that Kennedy murdered that woman at Chappaquidick. They just don't give a sh#t. And my man Barney Frank. Why don't they just move his fat ass to chairman of the Fed or POTUS? With the tremendous oversight job he did of Fannie and Freddie, that should be ample grounds for promotion.

    I appreciate your post. I would never have heard of GOOOH any other way. I immediately wanted to join and may still. But then what I just said in my second sentence hit me. I also think that any organization with such a mission must leave the door open to reach further, Governor, State Legislature, Senate, Presidency. Going only half way won't cut the mustard.

    Holy canoli! I leave this site for about five hours and come back to fabulous rants. I need a diurectic.

     

    So I can piss on all the catastrophic, morphing BS that's going on with OUR country.

     

    Hey Guns: I'm considering going down to the Washington March. I'm angry. I'm incensed. I'm outraged. All these GD give-everybody-$ is stealing from our future, stealing from the natural course of healing an ailing economy. I believe that Roubini is about as sharp as the next cookie in the drawer. Sorry for the Yogi Berra-ism, but I'm starting to believe him. Not short term. But, long term, say about 2015, or sooner.

     

    The stupidity of our leadership is mind boggling.

     

    I'll add in one more to yours and YH's bullets.

     

    WTF ever happened to bancruptcy? Let the idiots that did thieving go down; go to jail, go to the Mayan Underworld where they have to nightly deal with flying obsidain blades. Better yet, Hussein's acid drop room. OUR country is out of control.

    Any goooh candidate that makes it to the top of the selection process but is not selected will be tapped for those other positions. Thats the discussions as they stand now. Why waste your top tallented and admired patriots.

     

    We have a plan. It will work but it requires the people and it requires everyone to get out and let the people know there is a solution and a choice to take back our country.

    Both parties are corrupt and have an agenda. It does not include us. I also dont think either party is capable of being salvaged. We need a new plan. That is why I feel so strongly about goooh.

     

    NOTHING ELSE SHORT OF CIVIL WAR OR TOTAL COLLAPSE WILL CHANGE THINGS I AM AFRAID.

     

    I PRAY I AM WRONG BUT FEAR I AM NOT.

     

    Goooh could be our last bastion of hope for a peaceful and nondestructive solution.

    Clinton's repealing of the Glass Steagle Act didn't help matters either. That was a Hindenburg of a move, there. And now Art Cashin, who I think has as much sensabilities as anyone on CNBC, thinks a "W" recovery is not out of the question.

    A jackass in the house and dumbo's running congress. Both corrupt parties hard at work there. Must have been the same lobbiest pulling strings on both puppets.

     

    Think the banking system lobbied them on that. Maybe paid money (bribes) to reelection campaigns. Banking special interests OBVIOUSLY had a very big hand of cash working this issue.

     

    Now they get paid back (bailed out).

    Why are we giving Brazil about 2 billion to drill for oil and if that does not piss you off enough guess who is one of the largest stockholders, Soros!!!

     

    Is this a quid pro quo or what it is not like the Obama administration owes him anything for the millions if not billions he puts into the liberal machine.

    Another Grim Reaper problem looming out there, which has fallen completely off the radar, that has family businesses, farmers, etc., quavering like one of Michael Vick's dogs, is the removal of the Estate Tax benefit in 2011. Back to $600,000 it will go, just about when inflation will likely take off.

     

    Is this how Obama expects to pay down the debt, by taking away the gains of everyone's lifelong work, and shoving those gains right into the financial hellhole that's being created?

     

    Why work 12 hours a day, only to then see Uncle Sam lace his pockets from the fruits of your sweat.

     

    Anyone who knows what I'm really working on aside from trading stocks, knows that it's really knotty for me to hit the "publish" button right now.

    Double,

     

    I watched about half the video before something happened and I lost the connection. I'll try again later. But very interesting and very scary. It does fit in very well with historical human nature. There has always been someone (or some group), somewhere trying to conquer the world in one way or another.

     

    The first few minutes didn't engage me but after a while I became transfixed because so much started to fit into place.

    Odd in how Yellow decides to put up a thread today where we can rant about anything and everything about US policy, and we did, and then along comes that video.

     

    I reread all the comments on this thread before Doublegun's headsup about The Obama Deception video. Was amazed how many of our comments were mentioned within that video.

     

    It's as if there's some kind of freaky symbiotic consciousness going on that's giving me the heebeegeebees.

     

    Double, if I can swing it, I'm going to try to get to DC. The beginnings of the people taking back our country starts then, and I want to be there.

     

    My father, who helped found the NSA during Ike's administration, must be tossing about in his grave. I dearly wish he was still alive, so that I could ask him what he knows. I know this, he would be one pissed off camper right now.

     

    Thanks for putting up this thread, Yellow. The sheeple are turning back into people.

     

    Thing that scared me the most was the concentration camps being built. I read this somewhere about a month ago and dismissed it. Not anymore.

    Agreed! Now would be a great time to give California back to Mexico. They can take it with all its debt building up now so we won't have to bail them out.

    Interesting Thing About The 2012 December Solstice (Some Think 2011) On The Mayan Calendar.

     

    It is the end of the Baktun - the longest of the "Time Epochs" (144000 Days).

     

    The Mayan Were Amazing Astronomers. Their Calendar Appears To Be Based Upon - "The Great Celestial Conjunction".

     

    (Don't Get Weird About The Philosophy - They Were "Observers". There Are Other Sites To Research)
    www.greatdreams.com/20...

     

    Could Be Crazy Or "Just Another Day".

     

    Another Interesting "Observation" Is That We Are Well Into a "Solar Cycle" that is the calmest it has been in over a hundred years. (None To Very Few Sun Spots)

    The FEMA camps were debunked.There was a lot of misinformation in that video. There was also lots of truth. For instance, there was a bill HR1388 ( I think- you'd have to check if that's the right one-fittingly named for Ted Kennedy!)
    that had an earlier version that had "mandatory volunteerism" and authorized the study of conscription of our youth for government designed programs. Madatory volunteerism, an oxymoron if there ever was one! It was taken out of the final version, recognized as unconstitutional. Reminded me of "Arbeit macht frei" .
    I had a little trouble with that video, because, there is so much that is alarming and truthful, why turn it into a propaganda film with "spin, half truths and outright lies?
    I am only commenting on this because I value verity, and think you all do too.

    Author’s reply » I'm with you on the FEMA camps OG.

     

    Beck shot that rumor down months ago.

     

    Still, lots of good points and questions raised.

    If you missed Karl Denniger's SA article yesterday, you should read it.

    Another hole in the video was that the timing of when the miked-up anglo rebel rouser "checked in" to the DC suburb hotel, supposedly 48 hours before the clubhouse gang arrived, Yet, Obama was only out of touch for 36 hours, as the story states. As Will Robinson's robot would say, "That does not compute."

    Agreed, OptionsGirl. Sussing out what's the truth and what's cherrypicking sensationlism to manipulate the viewer is difficult to task. Yet we/I suspect that someone, some entity out there, (GS anybody?) is manipulating the markets toward their gain. $147 oil to $30 oil, likely back to $150, within a calendar year, the repeal of the Glass Steagle Act and so on and so forth has me perplexed, admittedly vunerable to that kind of video. I despise conspiracy theories, yet...

     

    The market is repleat with a history of violent swings; never good for the hard working Joe. That video offers forth one explanation. Do I believe it? Not sure. But it leaves me with questions. That's good.

     

    Somehow, we'll all get through this garbely goop.

     

    On another note, nobody I know of, even some highly connected peeps, have any idea about the Sept.10th rally in DC. Not buying my train ticket, yet. I sent out a link of that vid to some peers. Hoping my I-phone calms down tomorrow.

     

    OptsG, I'm already have stocked up on the masks! Can always use them to refinish the porch furniture.

    Mayascribe, DC march is on the 12th not the 10th There are other things going on if you check out the tea party websites for the entire weekend. I believe you might have to sign up.

     

    Glenn Beck DID debunk the camps on his show. I sent a copy of this video to him and it could take a month or so to get a response. If I get one.

     

    Agree there a some things on the video that dont seem correct but if some of them are true could all of them be true or better yet if some are false could all be false. I wonder if they put this together without any debunking on their own. I ordered a copy of it so I can watch it on the big screen and maybe get some better answers and photos since this monitor is to small for me to get much detail.

    That Karl Denniger article certainly points to suspicious market activity. Don't worry guys, it is just 3 years 147 days until Obama's term is up.
