Bush was right to call Iran and North Korea part of an Axis of Evil

Until now I have stayed away from posting anything from the wiki leaks fiasco! It is the opinion of this blogger that the Wiki leaks folks should be arrested,and, their sight shut down-after all D.H.S. is already shutting down domains that share copyrighted material illegally-obviously all the files they are sharing are stolen classified documents!!

But I could not ignore this article from -dare I say it-The New York times...

"Iran Fortifies Its Arsenal With the Aid of North Korea"

In this article the authors assert that Iran has obtained fro m North Korea missiles capable of striking the capitals of Europe and even-this might not be so bad- take out Moscow !

Former President George Bush was widely ridiculed for having called  Iraq,Iran,and north Korea an "Axis of Evil". In fact the BBC reported his "controversial" assessment of these rogue states in this lurid headline...

"Bush's 'evil axis' comment stirs critics"

saying that ...
             "Mr Bush's bellicose remarks about North Korea, Iran and Iraq have raised concerns in Europe that the war on terrorism may spread in terms of geography and nature"

Seems to me that Mr. Bush has been proven right!! In the last few days we have seen the idiot ruler of North Korea shell a South Korean Island-killing two civilians and two South Korean Marines-destroying property and terrorizing the world!

In the mean time the tyrannical government of Iran has suppressed all forms of dissent,killed an innocent teenage girl, and set that country back 60 years!!

Now if that isn't evil I don't know what is!!

The left criticized Mr Bush for being "bellicose" and yet they are strangely silent when the murderers in Iran and North Korea perpetrate their crimes. It is true that they report-with seeming reluctance- these events ,but, they never launch into the same sort of personal attack,or, character assassination, that they reserved for Bush-or for that matter-any conservative that stands up and calls these psychopaths what they are evil- go figure!

Yes as the world stands on the precipice of war. As North Korea gives a new definition to "Bellicosity", and, Iran procures more powerful missiles-obviously with the intent to load them with nuclear warheads- it appears to this writer that George Bush was right to call these rogue regimes exactly what they are "An Axis of Evil"!!!

Time to take North Korea to the wood shed

The Lunatic Leader of north Korea
The time has come for the idiotic leader of North Korea to be taught a tough and painful lesson. It's time for the United States and South Korea to take o'l Kim -Ill in the head- Jung to the proverbial wood shed.

In the good old "great fly over country" when a child acts like a defiant brat that child is grabbed up by the scruff of the neck and given a good sound whipping!

Yeah I can hear all the left coasters and the wimps on the east coast saying "my God that's child abuse" ,but, by golly it's usually pretty effective,and, you likely won't have to do it again!!

Well guess what folks for some time now the chicken s@#t country that we call North Korea has been acting like a sorry little spoiled brat bully,and, the only way to deal with a bully is to haul off and let him have it right in the face! That is exactly what needs to be done to North Korea. They a need a good swift kick right between the legs.

Some time ago in an earlier post I had this to say concerning this low life thug Kim Ill...

"The only thing thugs like him, and Saddam Hussein, and Al quida, or however the hell you spell those freaks name,understand is force,brutal, unrelenting, merciless force."
North Korea has used merciless force on unarmed innocent civilians!! Without any warning at all they loaded up their artillery and senselessly started shelling a portion of the sovereign nation of South Korea!!! Enough is enough. Our President has called for the South to "exercise restraint".

Would Mr. Obama exercise restraint if someone started shelling the U.S. mainland? I hope the hell not!! North Korea has been threatening the world for too long it is way past time to take the tin horn dictator known as Kim Ill and his lousy little horror show of a backward country to the wood shed and whip their butts with the full force of the combined military might of this country, South Korea, and any one else who cares to get a piece of the action!!!

A Thanksgiving tribute

In the name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, etc.

Having undertaken, for the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith and Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the First Colony in the Northern Parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and one of another, Covenant and Combine ourselves together into a Civil Body Politic, for our better ordering and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute and frame such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness whereof we have hereunder subscribed our names at Cape Cod, the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France and Ireland the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Domini 1620

As our thoughts begin to turn to the the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday most of us are preoccupied with travel plans,thoughts of turkey and all the trimmings, and getting together with family and friends. Most of us will take little time to think about the Pilgrims-outside of some stereotypical images we have of them-who held the first thanksgiving-and- what bearing their lives and sacrifices mean to us.

The first Anglo Saxon colonists to this country were a hardy and intrepid bunch of deeply devoted Christians, seeking freedom to practice their faith unfettered and unadulterated by European culture. They also set the stage for American self determination. Their "May Flower Compact is the first of this county's founding document. It was a compact among them selves-a contract if you will with each other-to lay a framework for how they would deal in and amongst themselves, to create order,secure tranquility, and set up a mode of self governance that would eventually find it's culmination in our Constitution.

It is only fitting- at this time of giving thanks for all we have-that we reflect on the great gift of freedom and self determination that these men and women suffered and sacrificed for,and,handed down to us. So this Thanksgiving take time to give thanks for them,the Mayflower Compact, and the example of liberty and freedom that they set for us all.

We need tax reform now! The FairTax plan for national prosperity

As was pointed out in a previous post the direction of the debate in America over the "Bush tax cuts" needs to be turned toward the real problem which is the need to scrap the current tax code and replace it with a fairer,more viable, alternative!

Some are proposing that we reduce the income tax, impose a consumption tax, and increase the cap on the amount of income to be taxed for social security. This is just plain wrongheaded and dangerous. We don't need to add another tax on top of the income tax,and,we sure as heck don't need to increase the amount of our incomes that is taxed for social security, Medicare, or anything else. Proposals such as these will do absolutely nothing to grow the economy,and return this country to prosperity.

What will work is the simple seven point plan for economic security,and,prosperity proposed by Fair
This plan calls for...

  • eliminating individual income tax.
  • eliminating payroll taxes.
  • eliminating estate,and,gift taxes.
  • eliminating capital gains taxes.
  • eliminating the alternative minimum tax.
  • eliminating the self employment tax.
  • eliminating corporate income taxes.

and replacing them with a national consumption tax of 23 percent of new retail spending.

If individuals are allowed to keep all the money they earn more will be available for discretionary spending.
If the rich and poor alike are allowed to keep what is theirs more dollars will be available to be spent on purchasing new goods and services,creating more wealth,investing in business, etc etc

Most importantly if individuals and corporations are freed from capitol gains,and,corporate taxes billions more will be available to build plants, create jobs,lower prices, and the list goes on and on. Further more if this country were to abolish corporate income taxes this country becomes the most attractive place on the face of the globe to do business. It could well be that "Made in America" could replace the "Made in China" logo.

That is a plan for national prosperity-as well as -real change that we all should be able to agree with!

Tax reform now! Forget the Bush tax cuts!!

The big question of the day-since the midterm elections has been- "will the Bush tax cuts be extended?" Why even ask this question? The real issue is that the entire tax code needs to be scrapped! In fact,instead of stressing over whether or not to extend the Bush era tax cuts, why not take a look at revolutionary reform of the current tax code,as well as ,abolishing the I.R.S. as we know ?!!

This nation was founded because the people grew sick of the tax burden imposed upon them by the King of England and the abuse of power that was used to collect the  taxes imposed upon them by the King.

Today we find ourselves in a similar situation-hence the Tea Party movement-the King of England had turned a deaf ear to the concerns of the Colonists-much as our present government has ignored the will of the people-and he paid a dear price-much the same as those politicians who most recently  chose to ignore the people-both of them lost power.

The history of this nation is one of a people wary of taxation. In fact Thomas Jefferson had this to say about taxes...
"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his father has acquired too much, in order to spare to others who (or whose fathers) have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, "to guarantee to everyone a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."
Prior to the Tea Party movement another movement had already begun in America. A movement who's aim was to scrap the current tax code,abolish the I.R.S. and, totally reform the way taxes are collected in America!

That movement is the FairTax movement. We The People have spoken! now is the time for the newly minted representatives of the people to consider a whole new course for this nation! A course based on fairness. A course based on traditional American principles. A course based upon the idea that the people do not exist to support the government, but, that the government exists to serve the people!

The time has come to consider the FairTax!!

Here are some other informative links to check out

Rockmelt the melding of browsing and social networking!

For the past week their has been a new browser available that promises to revolutionize the way a significant number of people view the web-as well as -social networking sights that browser is Rockmelt.

Backed by the creator of Netscape,Marc Andreesen,Rockmelt is the brain child of two plucky entrepreneurs Tom Howe and Eric Vishria.

According to Rockmelt's blog... 
"RockMelt does more than just navigate Web pages. It makes it easy for you to do the things you do every single day on the Web: share and keep up with your friends, stay up-to-date on news and information, and search. And of course, RockMelt is fast, secure, and stable because it’s built on Chromium, the open source project behind Google’s Chrome browser. It’s your browser – re-imagined and built for how you use the Web."  

and the experience of this blogger  is that it delivers quite well on this promise. Given that fact that Rockmelt is still in beta form -from the perspective of this very thrilled user-it does a wonderful job of melding the social networking power of facebook and twitter into a totally new web browsing experience

The two greatest attributes of-Rockmelt are what are called edges-one on the left the on the right-that bring together your favorite RSS feeds on the right and your favorite facebook friends on the left. Now one can see what your friends are face booking about-as well as tweeting- and never leave the page you're working on.

There are also other features-too numerous to mention in this post- that make this new kid on the block worth checking out. However -in the humble opinion of this blogger- if you are a regular user of facebook and twitter and do a lot of research and work on the web you will not be disappointed in Rockmelt. In fact I like it so well it has become my browser of choice for posting my blog,as well as,surfing the web.

Indeed Rockmelt is the melding of browser and social network into a whole new animal the "social browser"!!

The mystery missile. Could it have been fired accidentally?

An apparent missile launch-caught on tape-has turned into an event that can only be described as "bizarre".

Yesterday evening a CBS affiliate in Los Angeles caught on tape a missile-what some are calling an ICBM-being launched 35 miles off the west coast near Los Angeles.

At the time of this writing no one in the Pentagon  is admitting that any branch of our armed services was behind the launch. What they have said is that it was not a "threat to our national security",and, that it was not from a "foreign military".

The Pentagon is now saying that what was caught on tape was likely an "aircraft". Please! There is no way that what -even the casual observer can tell is a rocket-was caught on tape is an "aircraft"!!

This is obviously a missile case closed! What is not apparent is why was it launched,and, who launched it? It seems that this may well have been an accidental launching of an American ICBM,and if so, that means that it was destroyed sometime after launch,and, that there may well be a warhead lying somewhere at the bottom of the Pacific ocean somewhere between California and Alaska!

Examine the evidence. Absolutely no one in the U.S. military is claiming this thing,yet the government services are saying it is not a threat and didn't come from a foreign military. That leaves-by default-only one other source the U.S. military.

If this missile had been launched by a private organisation-as some have suggested- they would surely have put out a press release by now. If it had been hobbyists surely they would have been noticed before they could launch simply because this thing is obviously a very large rocket. The foreign component seems unlikely because there is just so much hi tech gadgetry on the floor of the Pacific Ocean-that is designed to track subs- that it would seem impossible that an enemy sub could get that close to our shores!!

Time will likely show that this was an unintended launch of -what could well be a nuclear-missile. This sort of thing has happened before-remember the cruise missile carried by a B52 over Iran-this is likely a scandal,as well as, a cover up in the making

We The People give the Democrats a drubbing of historic proportions

That's right-We The People-gave the liberal Democrats in the house of Representatives a drubbing, nay, a beating that they should not soon forget! If they do forget it will be at their own political peril. Come to think of it those who got elected last night would do well to heed the lessons of this election!!

We the people are a very tolerant,forgiving, and long suffering people. We are,and,always have been more likely to suffer abuses than to turn to revolution. However when pushed to a certain point the people of this country always have ,and, will rise up and push back against a government out of control.

The founders of this nation chaffed for a long time under the yoke of British tyranny until they could take it no longer and were forced by circumstances to rise up and violently throw off the chains of the oppressor.

Thank God that in their wisdom-as well as being guided by God- they gave us the Constitution that we have today which makes possible a bloodless revolution like we witnessed last night-Nov. 3,2010-and make no mistake a revolution it was.

After a long series of abuses by the Democrats in the house-as well as the Senate-lead by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid the people said enough is enough and threw the bums out!!!

The Founding fathers sought to constrain and regulate the Government. Theses people sought to constrain and regulate us!!

The founders felt that Government existed to serve the people. They thought the people exist to serve them!!

They were oh so wrong and learned a very hard lesson . DO NOT IGNORE THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE!!

Take heed Republicans and Tea Party politicians who will soon be heading to Congress the eyes of the people are upon you. The people of this great nation have spoken ,and, they have said take heed of the Constitution, respect the will of the people, and most of all, do what is in the best interests of this nation,and, not your own narrow political interests.
