Choose The Constitution – “A Time for Choosing” by Ronald Reagan

The United States Constitution and Ronald Reagan

The Republicans swept the election while many of us must now hope they remember the Constitution that established the rules that allowed them to be elected in free elections. Now that the House and Senate are controlled by Republicans time will tell if they become part of the corrupt system or they honor that US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Both parties are guilty of slowly nibbling away the foundation of the Constitution through bills, laws, and programs never contemplated by the Founding Fathers. The new GOP class of elected leaders must be watched as closely as the Liberal Democrats they replaced. %Southern MusterChoose The Constitution   A Time for Choosing by Ronald Reagan%Southern MusterChoose The Constitution   A Time for Choosing by Ronald ReaganThey have gotten badly off track under previous Republican administrations. Maybe this time will be better, but early signals are not promising.

Even now we constantly hear from all politicians and talking heads phrases like, “The People want us to get something done,” or “We have to get things done for the American people.” The truth is, with a limited number of exceptions, every bill every congress has created and passed since ratification of the Bill of Rights has “Done something TO the American people!” The correct mantra for every Congressperson and Senator should be “We must get something UNDONE for the American people.” The sooner they begin to repeal bad, constitutionally non-compliant legislation already in force, the better off the American people will be.

“Imagine having protection by the government from enemies, foreign and domestic along with the liberty and freedom from the government the authors of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights envisioned in today’s world. We would be the most secure and economically dynamic nation on earth. Every American would have the unfettered opportunity to succeed without the interference of hundreds of thousands of anti-success legislation and regulation.”

Ronald Reagan had that vision. Here is his “A Time for Choosing” speech 50 years ago.

Wisdom From The Terror Crystal Ball

“Oh Chrystal Ball, Speak Wisdom of US Terror Threat Levels”

Do they have a crystal ball or has the Obama Administration had a sea-change in their classification of terror and terrorists? October 28, 2014 and precisely one week before the 2014 Midterm Elections, the Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson raised the country’s terror threat level at some Federal Buildings as a “precautionary step” according to the Associated Press. Secretary Johnson would not say what federal buildings, but that the threat should be self evident from the open terror organization calls for attacks within the United States. It was less than 60 days ago when the administration refused to increase alert levels in the United States after terror attacks in the UK and Canada. So, what changed?

%Southern MusterWisdom From The Terror Crystal BallIf you check the DHS Terror Alert System website there is no indication of increased threat even on October 29, 2014, the day after the public statement was made. There can be no doubt that American citizens should be on alert all the time when in public as a matter of course. This is especially true for younger Americans. We have seen a rise in the numbers of deranged shooters as well as home grown terrorist acts in recent days. But, what has prompted this heightened alert by DHS and the Administration when their website news feeds and alert systems state that there are “NO ACTIVE THREATS”? Directly above is the real-time alert notification widget available from DHS.

Americans have many reasons to be wary of all government given the number of times we have been lied to, spied on, defrauded of votes, taxed at every breath and so much more. Latest Gallup polls show that over 55% of Americans do not trust the Federal Government and another 36% only trust somewhat.

The fact that the 2014 midterm elections are in one week makes the threat level move suspicious. Evidence of voter fraud and vote buying has already surfaced in Illinois and Maryland.  La Raza is touting a guide to where folks can go to vote without an ID. Meanwhile President Obama Jokes at a rally telling the crowd in Wisconsin that you can only vote once because Wisconsin is not Chicago. Voter fraud WILL happen in the upcoming election and it is no laughing matter.

There a faint smell of a rat exuding from this action by the DHS Secretary. Could it possibly be that the Democrat Party sees trouble in this election cycle? Just as the IRS, the NSA, the Justice Department and other agency’s have been used against Democrat political enemies before, during, and after prior elections, is the DHS being used now to scare voters in hope of suppressing the vote?

It will come as no surprise if obvious and overt security personnel show up in droves at poling stations in and around Federal Buildings in districts where low turnout can aid Democrats. Keep you eyes and ears open. You could be terrorized from voting by your own government.

Tale of Two Liberals and A Mule

Two Liberals and A Mule

The story goes something like this,

There are two friends both attending Harvard, both are liberal and very “save the planet” oriented, in other words completely brainwashed. One of the fellow’s names was Ted and the other is Assemi, Al for short.

Immediately upon graduation, both go to work for major Wall Street financial institution with big compensation packages in the “paper” (bonds, derivatives, currency options, etc.) trading divisions. Each of these two fellows hit it huge their very first year and make seven-figure incomes including base and bonus.

The two met for dinner one night and neither was happy. As the conversation progressed, they both decided to give away almost all of their earnings and purchase small farms. They were going to live off the land, reduce their carbon blue print, save the world, etc. They figured if they were wrong given they were so successful the first time right out of school, they could always do it again if they must.

One of the fellows gave his money to the Sierra Club, the other gave his to Greenpeace except enough to pay for the farm, and a little cash to get the first crops started.

Their farms were in the same town although several miles apart. They did stay in close communication to discuss each others progress.
One afternoon Ted was in the small town and he saw a fellow with a ragged old mule he was going to pay to have slaughtered. The mule was far too skinny and looked like he had not been cared for very well.%Southern MusterTale of Two Liberals and A Mule%Southern MusterTale of Two Liberals and A Mule

Ted approached the fellow and asked what the story of the mule was? The stranger said, “He’s just a mule. Why are you worried about it?” When Ted saw him take the mule into the slaughterhouse stockyard, he could not handle that response so he asked for how much the stranger would sell the mule. The stranger quickly said $50. Ted bought the mule because he was convinced he could not only save the mule, but also make the mule productive if it was treated humanely.

A commercial farmer named George happened to overhear the conversation. George owned thousands of acres of high capacity farmland which he farmed using every technological advantage and chemical crop enhancement he could legally deploy. Needless to say, George was quite successful, but he was also the precise opposite of Ted. He was fascinated by the naiveté and Liberal ideology of Ted.

Ted took the mule home and went right to work.

He fed, bathed, and brushed out the mule. The mule looked pretty good to Ted. He kept this up for two weeks before deciding to see if he could hook the mule up to an old plow left on the farm from the previous owner. Sure enough, the mule plowed great. He could not contain his exuberance and felt he had to share his success with his friend Al .Ted and Al had always been fierce, but friendly competitors.

A few days later Al stopped by Ted’s farm one afternoon to see this magic mule. Ted was proud of himself. Al was impressed and envious. Without even thinking about it Al, convinced he can do better with this mule asked Ted if he would take $100 for the mule. Ted thought about that for a few minutes. He knew that this mule eats a lot and after all that is 100% profit, so he sold the mule to Al.

Al knew he needed to “one up” Ted so he immediately started working on the mule. Al washed the mule and began to feed the mule sweet feed instead of hay. He then rounded up a pair of clippers and groomed the mule’s hair to a consistent length. Next, he trimmed the mule’s mane and tail including braiding both with color braids. He had the old mule looking great in just a matter of days. Unlike Ted, he did not use the old mule for plowing. Instead, he fattened the mule and took it to local schools for kids to pet and learn about animals. Al knew Ted would be envious for not thinking of this use for the mule.

Ted stopped by to visit Al about a month later and saw the mule. He was impressed, so impressed that he could not stand it. He offered Al $200 for the mule. Just as Ted reasoned originally, Al knew this was 100% profit with bragging rights so he sold the mule back to Ted. Now Ted needed to figure out how he could make the mule look better and do more to one up his friend.

%Southern MusterTale of Two Liberals and A MuleTed visited the local Tack Shop to find ideas. He got it. He bought a bridle and a saddle for the old mule. The best money could buy. Then, he had a shiny brass nameplate engraved with the mule’s name on it for the bridle strapping. However, the mule had not been named, so he gave the old mule the name “Freddie Mac.” He took the new tack home and began to get the mule accustomed to the bit and bridle instead of the old rope. The mule obviously was bridled before and he took to the bit immediately.

Ted saddled the old mule up and began to ride him. Wow, this was great. He had a mule he could ride with low fuel cost (hay) and no carbon footprint. Best of all, he one-upped Al in the process.

For several months, old man George had witnessed all of these transaction in complete awe and fascination of these two “city boys.”

Ted could not stand it. He had to ride the old mule to Al’s farm to show off. When he arrived, Al was duly impressed, but his competitive ire began to rise again. After complimenting Ted profusely, Al asked Ted what he had to pay for the Bridle and saddle.

Ted replied that he got a bargain and bought both for $800. Al calculated the total investment in the old mule is $1000. After doing some quick math in his head and thinking he could get a trailer set up to beat Ted, he spoke up and offered Ted 3 times his money for the old mule, $3000. Ted did not need to think much about that offer; SOLD.

%Southern MusterTale of Two Liberals and A Mule%Southern MusterTale of Two Liberals and A MuleGeorge happened to drive by during this transaction and said to the boys, “Mighty fine looking mule you boys got there.”

Thanks they replied in unison because they both felt a valuable part of this achievement. Al then blurted out, “And we only have $3000 in this fine animal. George just shook his head in astonishment and drove away.

Well, that dismissive and humiliating reaction from George pissed both of these fellows off. As if of one mind, Ted and Al looked at each other as Ted asked if Al was thinking the same thing he was. Al responded, “I think so if you thinking about taking this investment to the markets?” “Yep” said Ted. The two of them went inside to work out the details.

They decided that based on available tax deduction for farm investment, their contacts on Wall Street they could syndicate this mule for about $30,000 or 10 times best offer. The market appetite for paper products is strong.

Let’s do it. Al paid Ted $500 for an equal share in the financial instrument, the mule. Then they contacted their Wall Street friends to sell them 300 shares of the investment for $100 each, a handsome profit and they get to keep the mule. Wall Street only wants the paper, properly executed of course.

The Wall Street Boys determined they could market this investment within already active income producing funds to offset gains and as such, it should be worth at least 2-1/2 times the base investment. They set the value of the product at $75,000 and sold 750 shares to their clients through fast moving fund managers for $100 per share.

Ted and Al, with chests and head swelled in pride for their brilliance had just proven that the Liberal investment model is alive, well, and profitable without doing any damage to the environment.

About two months later George was walking through downtown and he noticed both of these city boys looking tired, ragged, completely disheveled, and destitute sitting on a sidewalk in front of the local bank. They each had a Starbucks coffee cup and looked as if they were actually begging for coins.

George had to know the rest of this story. He went over to the boys and said, “I thought you boys were getting rich over selling that old mule back and forth? What’s with the long faces and homeless look?”

They looked at each other before lowering their heads looking downward to the sidewalk as though they were completely defeated. Al spoke first and said,” We lost everything and the bank has taken my farm.”

Ted chimed in and said, “Yeah. Mine too and all the investors are suing us for their money back.”

“What went wrong?” George asked.

“The Mule caused all of this by dying. And, we forgot to buy bailout insurance with a campaign contribution to Obama and McCain.”

The Moral of the Mule story;

• When you sell someone something made from nothing, the day will come when the buyer wants to touch your nothing.
• Without a real product, you may not produce real dollars.
• Just because you earned a PHD at an Ivy League School, you can still be too smart by half.
• Many people suffer when Liberals are in charge.
• Even after the suffering is inflicted, the Liberal blames his folly on someone or something else.
• Liberal campaigns to “Save the Planet” always become unadulterated greed shadowed by purpose.
• The Utopian society is not scheduled for this life; it comes in the next.
• Remember to pay off both political parties; you never know what might happen or who will win.
• It does not matter what you call it, or how you dress it up, “A $50 Mule is a $50 Mule.”

Obamacare Regulator Kathleen Sebelius Resigns Her Post Head of HHS

President Obama has accepted the resignation of  Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, arguably the most powerful woman in the United States in her role as Obamacare regulator. In the 2400 page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) commonly known as Obamacare the Secretary Sebelius is assigned decision making power over the healthcare choices of American Citizens hundreds of times. It is suggested that President Obama will nominate Office of Management and Budget Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell as Secretary Sebelius’ replacement.  Read More here…

Rep Gohmert vs AG Eric Holder of The Injustice Department

Congressman Gohmert vs Attorney General Eric Holder of The Injustice Department

After seeing the exchange between Congressman Louis Gohmert and Attorney General Eric Holder, maybe AG Holder should be referred to as Attorney General J. Edgar Holder in that he seems to have, mimicking the trickery of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to pass Obamacare, “deemed” himself above the Law. The current US Justice department is little more than a shake down (see IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups), extortion (see BP) and selective Justice (see New Black Panthers Voter Intimidation) wing of the out of control Federal Government under the “Leadership” of the Obama Administration. He obviously has chosen to skirt all of Congressman Gohmert’s questions with the fail-safe “I will not respond on ongoing investigations” ploy.

Congressman Gohmert after interview with Fox

The Gohmert Holder exchange brings to light just one of the many abuse of power issues ongoing in our country. It is time to define a course of action. From quid pro quo paybacks to contributors, covert investigations of American Citizens to taking of private property to save a turtle as in the current instance of rancher Cliven Bundy to Obamacare and NSA spying on American citizens, this has to end. They work for us and we must reclaim that authority of our government.

Here’s a prediction; Congressman Louis Gohmert will find himself under investigation by multiple agencies of the Federal Government within the next 24 months, including the Department of Injustice..

Will Congressman Gohmert fall prey to the Obama Administration Gestapos? What do you think?

Dr. Ben Carson’s National Prayer Breakfast Speech

Dr. Ben Carson’s National Prayer Breakfast Speech

I realize the redundancy of this post but I believe Dr. Carson‘s speech is so important that every Conservative website should keep it available permanently in hope all American’s will eventually watch it. The traditional media has paid no attention to this speech for reasons that will become obvious after watching the video. Dr. Carson‘s speech was given at the National Prayer Breakfast with President Obama sitting two seats away from the podium. Here is that speech,

Dr. Carson has said in subsequent media interviews that Obama Administration asked him on more than one occasion for a copy of his speech so they could “Approve” it. He declined and finally told them that he did not prepare outlines for his speeches but instead spoke unscripted based upon his own convictions and beliefs at such events. He did say however, that he gave him the Scripture verses upon which his remarks would be based.

Consider, Dr. Carson presented his Concise, Accurate, Truthful and Biblically based remarks with no teleprompter and was spot on” and his comments have created a Conservative frenzy of total agreement! Obviously Dr. Carson’s remarks came from deep conviction to flow so coherently. Do you think we will ever see such honesty from President Obama?

When Is It Time To Kick Your Spouse Out Of Your House?

When Would You Kick Your Spouse Out Of Your House?

All across the US stories are emerging in increasing frequency of one of the spouses in a marriage snapping, becoming violent, irrational and maliciously evil. Next, one spouse or the other does something rash that result in irreversible and irreparable damage, all because the nurturing spouse did not take action soon enough by getting their partner help or by removing them from the home and property permanently.

When enough of the signs become apparent, act; don’t continue to endure under the false hope of a better day and complete reversal of true nature. Kick your spouse out of your house. The breakup or complete unnecessary destruction is inevitable.

Consider the case of, let’s call them George and Nancy to protect their identities. George is in his late 50’s and a Vietnam veteran who, like so many young men left for war immediately after high school and returned from war physically whole but mentally very damaged. George had been raised in a devoted God fearing home. Fortunately for George he came from great stock and his parents, his father a WWII vet himself, helped him to get plenty of great professional and spiritual help when he returned from Nam.

George, after a couple of years of getting his head fixed proceeded to get involved in real estate, gobbling up all of the educational material he could get his hands on and studying the successful real estate power brokers in the industry so he could learn from and emulate them. George devoted all of his effort to building what became a modest to large and highly successful real estate and construction business. He was also still a single and eligible bachelor during his many years of building his business.

George owned outright a large and very nice home on the eastern coast, a great many acres of land both on beautiful beaches and scenic mountain ranges, vehicles and he leads a fleet of highly qualified and very well paid employees. He gave large sums of money to charity and military causes hoping to help as many returning Vets as he could. He was all too familiar with what they faced upon return to civilian life in the USA. By all measure George was a very successful entrepreneur.

While dining with some friends at a local restaurant, George noticed the Maitre d’ giving him more than a couple of extended looks. She was a very attractive young woman appearing to be couple of years younger than George. George’s friends noticed as well and encouraged George to speak with the young lady since, as they chanted, “George, you need a good woman and you’re not getting any younger.” George took the advice and ended up asking Nancy, the Maitre d’ out for a date.

The first date went well and the dating continued for about a year. George and Nancy became a “couple”. Nancy was a surprisingly well spoken and diversely experienced lady of modest means for someone who had always lived in the same small town and had attended the local junior college without ever graduating. They spent a great deal of time telling each other about their early life except that George never discussed his time in Vietnam.

George was completely smitten by Nancy and it seemed the feeling was mutual. One thing led to another and George and Nancy became husband and wife about a year and a half after their first meeting. Life was bliss for George and Nancy for the first year of their marriage and they were blessed with two beautiful and healthy little girls. Even before their first child was born Nancy made what George expected to be a difficult adjustment from being of modest means to sharing in George’s vast fortunes. George made all he owned available to her without condition.

Life was good! Then, like an unexpected house guest something changed.

Around the time George and Nancy first married the national economy began to show early signs of trouble. As the next five years progressed predictably the economy progressively became worse and George was required to spend a great deal more time and effort in realigning his holdings and struggling to keep the business profitable just like other business owners across the nation. Needless to say he was not as attentive to Nancy and the kids as he wished he could be.

During the five years of difficult economic times Nancy’s behavior was changing as well and not for the better. She seemed to always be distant, even angry when she was around George and the girls. Even with full knowledge that George was under significant pressure due to the economic conditions, she became increasingly selfish and demanding of George’s attention, time and actions. Often her actions appeared to be laced with the ultimate goal of punishing George for some unknown reason. She seemed on a mission to rule the family and all of its activity through demands and verbal punishment for non-submission. The times George questioned what was wrong or why this or that happened Nancy always blamed someone or some other event for her actions. George dismissed her behavior rationalizing that she has her own stresses dealing with the two young children.

George struggled daily to try to be understanding with Nancy, often to the point of blaming himself to vindicate her actions. She became reluctant to associate with any of George’s family, friends and associates including missing important husband / wife business dinners and outings with George’s family. Nancy only wanted to be around her friends from prior to the marriage, some of whom George had met but most he not only had not meet but knew nothing about. It was as if Nancy had carved out a separate life outside the marriage and was trying to be two different people.

Maybe the most difficult development in Nancy’s emerging behavior was the lies. Before they married Nancy told George about her family and her early life. In their first years as husband and wife much of what Nancy had said about her family turned out to be far different from what Nancy previously told him. In fact the difference was substantial. There were criminal and militant threads all through the reality of her family. George dismissed this to his possibly not paying enough attention during their courtship.

Now, with almost every conversation George detected some falsehood or embellishment. At first they were innocent and seemingly minor, simple for George to ignore. Then the lies began to migrate into more important areas such as the girl’s preschool and other activities. As time marched on, these embellishments became more life impacting and damaging, seemingly with malicious intent. They soon were blatant lies and deceptions and George struggled harder daily to overlook or explain away Nancy’s actions.

Not long after they were married George set up a well funded foundation for the purpose of owning and operating a very large beautiful park on the top of a scenic Blue Ridge Mountain location. It was equipped with facilities and memorials specifically dedicated to veterans. The park was open to all but catered especially to current and retired military personnel. He made Nancy and his veteran father the co-chairmen of the foundation to manage as they determined best. All went great for a year or so but now Nancy was shirking her responsibility to assist in the park’s operation leaving the entire burden on George’s aging father. Nancy was too busy with her friends to participate. She fabricated falsehoods about why and where she was when she missed important events and failed to execute her responsibilities to the foundation.

For the last year or two Nancy did not hesitate to spend excessively to purchase all sorts of things, some on the strangest of whims for items that quickly made it to the attic storage as the newness evaporated. Other purchases were items she gave to her set of private friends. All of this spending was done when Nancy was off with her group of friends. Maybe she was trying to impress them, George wondered?

Eventually the spending became not only excessive in number of items but the purchases became larger and larger. At first George beamed with pride that he was fortunate enough to make the resources available for Nancy to have whatever she wanted. After a while it became annoying because Nancy mostly purchased junk in Georges mind, but he held his tongue as he had the wealth and needed to keep his attention on his business.

This never before seen side of Nancy was tearing George and the family apart. The two very young girls showed apprehension, maybe even fear in their eyes every time Nancy erupted. George had no idea what to do or how to handle this predicament. Nancy was always angry at George for the smallest of reasons. On top of his home distress, his business was still requiring much attention to weather the current and still deteriorating economic climate.

George, his immediate and extended family and his business was being torn apart and it all seemed to be originating from the same source.

When Nancy’s spontaneous purchases extended to land and homes George had to object. She independently purchased another vacation home and some open range land without even consulting George. After all, that is what George’s business does. He has a fleet of appraisers and due diligence employees who evaluate every deal before he purchases land or homes. How could he possibly appreciate Nancy freewheel purchasing this kind of asset without even consulting him? When he spoke with Nancy about this she blew a gasket. She became visually angry and again verbally abusive. George finally left to go to his office and let this matter cool a bit while he collected his thoughts as to how to handle the situation.

When George returned home from his office he found a succinct note from Nancy simply stating she went to one of the vacation homes for a while. There was no specific comment if she had the girls with her or when she would return.

George called Nancy’s cell phone hoping to begin a discussion in his attempt to resolve their issues and find peace for the family. Nancy did answer but had no interest in doing anything but yelling at George. When George asked to speak to the girls, Nancy told him she did not have them. They are staying with Nancy’s brother and his girlfriend. This is the brother who has had much trouble with the law and is an active protester against the “evils of big business.” He has even protested in front of George’s business before.

When George protested and asked Nancy why she did not leave the girls with his parents like they had agreed to do in the past, Nancy made it clear she did not want the girls around his parents. She told George that she had told his mother she did not want the kids to be around them over a year ago. George had no idea that happened but now he understood why his parents have been distant for the last year or so. Nancy also told George that she had shut down the veteran park a month earlier because she got tired of dealing with the headache of it.

At this point George lost his temper, something he had not done since right after his return from Vietnam. He hung up the phone before he said something he could never repair. George needed time to determine what he is going to do because this can continue no more, not even another day.

And now in the words of the late great Paul Harvey, “The Rest of the Story”,

Understanding that the male / female roles in this story are not important because the story is very often reversed, the question for anyone reading this article is,

“At what point in this story would you have taken action and kicked this spouse out of the home You own”?

When is enough, enough? What action do you take and when?

The TWIST

Once you answer the question, read the story again and consider the following:

A) George represents every American Citizen; You. You own this country lock, stock and barrel. You own every federally managed park, monument, mountain, river, lake and beach. Most importantly many of your ancestors fought and died for you to have the opportunity to own this land and the Elite Military you now employ fights and dies every day to protect you right to keep it. You choose and employ the politicians from the President on down and the work force to administer the country’s every function. Every one of them whether you voted for them or not work for you.

B) Nancy represents President Obama who was only known through a very short courtship before marriage about five years ago. Little to nothing is known about his family and background as it has all been sealed for years.

While there have been many blatant lies and deliberately misleading statements from President Obama and his administration,  just in the last three weeks we have witnessed premeditated actions to deceive and inflict the maximum pain on you. A short list of some examples is:

(Note that the punishment intended for you is always cowardly inflicted upon the weak, the elderly and those pledged to not retaliate such as our soldiers) 

  • You are being told that without increasing the President’s borrowing authority you cannot pay your country’s debt even though current law requires that interest on national debt be paid from current tax receipts before any other payments. Interest on your Country’s debt is approximately 18 billion dollars and current tax receipts are approximately 220 billion dollars, over 12 times what is needed monthly to avoid any possible threat of default.
  • While the Government is operating at only about 85% of fully functional (referred by the administration as “Government Shutdown”) additional money has been spent to close the WWII Veterans Memorial and effort has been made to stop Veterans from visiting the memorial. This memorial is in the wide open spaces and normally publicly available without any paid assistance. Compare this to closing the street sidewalk in front of your home.
  • The same is true for the Lincoln Memorial, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Independence Hall, Alcatraz Island, Washington Monument, National Zoo, the Smithsonian, the roadway leading toward Mt Rushmore, the parking areas of many privately owned historical landmarks, most Civil War Battleground memorials that are never attended even when open and some privately owned homes on leased federally managed land. This is all YOUR Property and its closing or restricted access is purposely to cause maximum pain on YOU!
  • Soldiers you employ serving in war zones in Afghanistan and other countries are not allowed to see most private television channels such as sports channels during their limited down time. This President has repeatedly punished the military to inflict pain on you during his five year stint in office.
  • The Obama administration has ordered the shutdown of all commissaries on military bases but kept open the golf courses on those bases where he plays frequently. Primary henchmen scattered all through the Obama administration have been explicitly instructed to make this phoney shutdown as painful as possible on “You” by punishing those you love and cherish.
  • All National Parks are closed. Now I want to drive this point home; “You” are being told that “You” are incapable of walking, hiking, camping or even bird watching in the open woods “You” own without President Obama’s permission.

During President Obama’s approximately 5 year tenure in Your house, he has made many erroneous or deceptive promises like,

  • He will not allow any lobbyists in his administration. His administration is flush with them.
  • His would be the most transparent administration in history. The precise opposite is true to the point that even the liberal press is regularly complaining. Consider the hidden and redacted documents and personnel involved in Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” gun running operation, the assassination of the US personnel in Benghazi while President played cards yet posed for a photo afterward to make you think he was present, the justice department repeatedly suing various states yet not prosecuting known voter violations such as the Black Panther incident and this list goes on for volumes.
  • With the Affordable Care Act (i.e. ObamaCare) you can keep your policy, your doctor and cost will go down for the average family by $2,400 per year. In fact the average cost will increase by approximately $7,500 per year; you may not be able to keep your doctor or policy.
  • He would lower the unemployment rate below 7% when in fact ObamaCare is causing thousands of employers to reduce employee work hours to less than 30 hours and the Obama administration still counts that as a job in its calculation of the unemployment rate.
  • He said if he did not lower the deficit in his first four years he would not run again. In fact he has increased the deficit substantially. He made many economic promises but the bottom line is he has increased the indebtedness of the US more that it increased in the first 224 years of the Country’s existence.

This list could go on and on but the complete five years of lies and deceptions can be dealt with in further articles. The point is we have Nancy in the White House and he is doing his deliberate best to ruin your country, control your life and punish all who dare to disagree by punishing the weak, elderly and those pledged to not retaliate such as our soldiers.

Sooner or later we, you have to make an important decision if your country is to survive,

Should the Company Shareholders Fire Me?

“If you were a Company Shareholder,

Would you Fire Me?”

My company shareholders want to fire me! Can you believe that? Please let me know if you think I should be fired. Here is the situation,

I am the senior executive for a very large international company that sells to and operates in virtually every country on the globe, even the hostile ones. I answer directly to the shareholding owners of the company, albeit through a large board of elected company shareholders. Each of the board members own minor, but equal shares of stock in the company. No one person has controlling interest in the company.

While I don’t know much less understand all of the reasons they want to fire me, here are some of the situations I have heard mentioned through the rumor mill.

When I assumed the helm of the Company, this ship was sinking. The last Executive did a decent job early in his tenure and even steered the company through a crisis that might have been catastrophic without strong leadership. However, in his final couple of years, he failed miserably and the company was on the  verge of massive layoffs before I even took over. The layoffs came because the value of the company stock plummeted. This was due to the impact of lingering ill-conceived company loans reaching maturity. It seemed like an almost impossible task to turn it around. That’s why the company’s shareholders hired me.

The first thing I did, after putting some of my best henchmen in key positions was to secure a major influx of cash through a loan arrangement backed by the shareholders. I wanted a much larger loan amount, but what we borrowed was all the shareholders would sign off on. We immediately started hiring our workers back. In fact, we have hired almost 25% more than we had before the layoff, but the company income has not yet shown significant signs of increase. I keep telling the board it takes time to fix the last Executive’s mess.

One primary reason the income has not risen is, most of our regular suppliers had already suffered beyond their recovery ability when the company first faltered. They are not in a position to acquire similar loans for their operations and many will go or have gone out of business. It looks like other major suppliers will not be able to gear back up unless we loan them the money. We have done just that in a few select cases primarily to grease the union bosses’ palms for incentive. I contend, the shareholders not agreeing to the amount I initially wanted is the real reason for the continued decline in income.

It became apparent soon after I arrived that the workforce had a rather dim view of management and the attitude was affecting production. Many of the departments of the company were infected with fraud and prone to massive wasteful spending on trips, conventions and stupid programs. To try to enhance production I mandated wholesale improvements to the worker’s benefits programs, but I did not go so far as handing out unconstrained wage increases.

Unfortunately, some of my staff did not brief me very well as to the cost and impact of these benefits. They are twice the cost that I was told and do not deliver the promised perks to large groups of workers. I was forced to give exceptions and exemptions to numerous groups. Now, the shareholders are up in arms about the cost. I didn’t hire this staff. They were left over from the last executive. The shareholders should blame him, not me.

We had an incident at one of our more hostile overseas operations. I contend I did not have time to become fully acquainted with this operation. The incident involved the death of several and injury of a larger number of workers. We hire security contractors at all of our hostile region operations, but apparently some corporate bean counter left over from the last executive’s tenure cut their budget and some of our operations were left unprotected.

All of this happened as I was embarking on a long overdue vacation. I need to have my time too, so I left what I thought was capable staff in charge. Now, the shareholders are upset that I was not present to personally handle the accident recovery and investigation. Again, the staff did a poor job and now I have to be suspiciously cautious what information is made available to those outside of my personal circle. It would seem there are some over-zealous shareholders who want to blame me for everything. For some reason, they erroneously think I was in some way negligent. These workers knew the risk. All of our workers know the risk. What do they expect me to do? Besides that, ‘What difference does it make now? The incident is over.”

At present, I have been able to get the company income up a few percentage points, exclusively through company wide reduction of dividends and benefits to the entire body of shareholders. Now, they have a problem with that! They don’t seem to be capable of seeing the long-term future as I do. I know better than anyone what it is going to take to make this company function equitably for everyone. One might think they would realize that everyone has to sacrifice to get this ship turned around. The last executive left me a huge mess to clean up and slow but steady progress is being made. Why don’t they see it?

I did go back to the well so to speak to obtain larger loans and infuse more cash into the company, but this time I did not make the shareholders guarantee the debt. You would think they would be pleased with that. But no, not a single word of thanks.

I was able to secure the super sized loans by allowing encumbrance on a large portion of the company’s future earnings. Over my objections, the credit rating “Gurus” lowered our credit rating a notch so I had to agree to a higher interest rate on the loans. I believe we will have time to satisfy the loans before they come due against our future earnings if the shareholders will get off my back and let me just do what I already know is best for the company. They just don’t seem to understand what it takes to move a company forward.

Then, the latest complaint is that I invested a large portion of the latest round of loans in twelve or thirteen experimental start-up product companies. Most of them did not make it and have declared bankruptcy. How was I to know that they would go under? The staff was supposed to check them out thoroughly. If we don’t invest in future products, how will we face the future with new products? I still think the risk was worth it.

It has been a tough four years since I took the helm of this company. Sometimes I think I am the only one who can see where I am taking us. I have to force these shareholders in the direction that I know is the right course of action, even if some get hurt. Personally, I think I have done rather well, given what the last bad Executive left for me to clean up.

I don’t think the company shareholders have reason to fire me.

Do You?

%Southern MusterShould the Company Shareholders Fire Me?

OOPS! I failed to mention a few things that may be important:

  • The first loan came to be known as Stimulus Package
  • The Company is The United States
  • The workers died and suffered injury in Benghazi
  • The favored supplier loan was GM
  • The latter 12 or 13 loans were solar companies now defunct
  • The future earnings are our children’s children’s debt burden

If you do think I should be fired, then join other Patriotic Shareholders to demand removal of this President before he destroys our country.
