Biden – Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive.

“Every single great idea that has marked the 21st century, the 20th century and the 19th century has required government vision and government incentive.” Vice President Biden, October 26, 2010

The delusional Vice President stated that every great idea in more than 200 ideas has required “government vision”.  In other words without “government vision” there would be no cars, light bulbs,

Let’s look at some facts:

1. Theory of Relativity
2. Airplanes
3. Semiconductor
4. Standardized parts
5. Mass production
6. Just in the last 20 years: iPods, Google, eBay, Amazon.com, cell phones.  Every Internet website.
7. Light bulb,
8. Phonograph
9. Penicillin
10. Automobile
11. Telegraph/Telephone
12. Pharmaceuticals
13. FedEx
14. Passenger air travel
15. Movie/TV Industry
16. Steel
17. Agriculture
18. Mining
19. Shipping
20. Banking

Some of the “great ideas” of government include:

1. Socialism
2. Facsism
3. Communism
4. NAZI Socialism
5. Mao and Chinese Communism
6. USSR

Those five alone caused hundreds of millions of deaths.

7. Trillions of dollars in debt in the United States alone.
8. Inflation in the 1970s U.S., Germany in the 1930s etc.
9. Segregation couldn’t have occurred without the force of government

Some that did have government intervention, but in all likelihood crowded out some private initiative:
1. Nuclear weapons
2. Nuclear power
3. Space flight – USSR and the U.S.’s NASA
4. Interstate highway system
5. ARPAnet, which when the government got out of the way because the commercial internet. And which was developed with private ideas.

Other’s that also believed in the unlimited power and unlimited benefits of all controlling government were Pol Pot, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, King George III, Robespierre, Castro, Chavez. The ones that believed in liberty and freedom were Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Lincoln.

I know which side I want to be on. The side of freedom, not the side of tyrants.

Sam Adams:
“Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.”

“The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

Obama – We’re gonna punish our enemies

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us’ — if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election — then I think it’s going to be harder. And that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2nd.” President Obama, October 26, 2010, Univision radio.

Ignoring again the poor English, a President who refers to American citizens who disagree with him as “enemies” is disgraceful.  The great divider at work again.  I wonder where Marco Rubio fits in that statement.

Obama-”We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”

“We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.” – President Obama, October 25, 2010

One of the most outrageous comments ever from a President of the United States – even ignoring his poor grammar and poor command of the English language.  One thought that Rosa Parks and many others fought against this ignorant mentality.  Much of the American public understands that socialism, communism or fascism are incompatible with liberty and freedom and consequently are against all three – or any variation of them.  Unfortunately there are a large percentage of people who want to be parasites on the backs of the rest of us.

YouTube video of the statement.

National debt has increased by $5 trillion since Pelosi said “no new deficit spending.”

“After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit spending. Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt.”   Pelosi said in her inaugural address as speaker of the House in 2007

Since that day, the national debt has increased by $5 trillion, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.  For the full story, see this article.

California Air Board – not science, politics

* California grossly miscalculated pollution levels - by 340 percent, according to the California Air Resources Board

* Bad calculation by the air board estimated 18000 deaths per year from particulate matter, which now is estimated to by off by at least a factor of two.  (And probably thousands).

* The California Air Board estimate of a nitrous oxide source was off by at least a factor of two.

The board scientist – Hien Tran – who oversaw that study faked his scientific credentials.  Mary Nichols, chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board, knew that the “scientist” had faked his degree and lied about his credentials and did not inform the rest of the board prior to a vote on his faked research.

Nichols should resign, and the board should be dissolved.  Politics and science don’t mix.

Obama Admin Weighs Urging Ban on All Phone Use by Drivers

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says he believes motorists are distracted by any use of mobile phones while driving, including hands-free calls, as his department begins research that may lead him to push for a ban.  Link

What is next?  Banning all conversations while driving?  Have a conversation with a hands-free device is no more distracting that having a conversation with passengers.  Talk about big government.

LaHood also made an outrageous statement in an intereview this week: “I don’t want people talking on phones, having them up to their ear or texting while they’re driving.”  Hey, Secretary LaHood, I hate to break this to you, but this is SUPPOSED TO BE A FREE COUNTRY.  If I can speak to a passenger or on my hands-free phone without being distracted, it is none of your business.

(And somehow I missed the part of the Constitution that authorizes this).

Single Payer system, I go to the doc, I pay for the services I receive.

On a single payer system:

You go, you pay for the services you receive. I go to the doc, I pay for the services I receive. Love [the single payer] plan, single payer all the way. If it’s successful there, we’ll move it to other segments of society. You go gas up your car, you pay, I go gas up my car, I pay. Single payer again! Fantastic idea! A multi-payer system would be, You go to the doc, you don’t pay, but me, my neighbor, my boss and my brother-in-law all chip-in for your treatment. Hmmm, maybe we have a problem here with definitions. – “From Where I Sit”
