Sometimes Green Is Cosmetic!
I am usually highly suspect of anything "green".....my idea of green is something related to "AlGore" (The person and the theory of GW.)
In my own life I have tried several things to be greenwise.....Flourescent bulbs. They are great, but the impact on my electric bill is negligible. The disposal problems are not easy....IF you follow the rules and do not simply place them in your regular garbage.
Argon Gas-filled double pane windows. We replaced the four house windows which both faced the road in front of the house, and also took all the direct sunlight from 9am until 5pm....In Tampa that is substantial sun exposure in the Summer.
Our rewards......lower street noise by probably half. Cooler den and living room temps in the heat of the day. (Probably lowering electric bills, but unsubstantiated.)
Downside.....The $1,200.00 investment is probably slated for a payout on electric savings by about 2080....I am guessing that at 66 now, I'll not be here for the celebration.
Thus, final activation of the fun-filled attempts at green savings are probably a pet-thyself-for-doing-good actuality.....not true savings.
Thus am i impressed the PrezBo attempts at alternative energy gains are doomed completely, and his ignoring of true savings....cutting oil dependence by using OUR OWN OIL...will end up hurting us financially.
How Do You FAKE Transparency?????
Ask the PrezBo! He has it down to a science.
Promises, promises....he makes many....he keeps few to none.Washington Times exposes the lies in this Stephen Dinen piece.
Where is the Lame Stream Media and their version of accountability?
Auto Dealers Supporting DEM/Obama Gain Under Closings!
Kevin @ Wizbang covers the analysis now underway:"Have friends in high places...The story making the rounds today is an analysis of the political contributions of the owners of Chrysler dealerships who are being forced to close. The evidence presented so far, though far from complete, appears to show a correlation between owners who donated to GOP candidates and dealerships getting closed. As they say correlation is not causation, so it's too early to infer that the closings constitute some sort of political hit list. Perhaps there is some basis to that charge and and there's no evidence yet thatJoey Smith, who appears to be the person doing all the primary research on the list dealers being closed, has noted one high profile partnership that not only isn't suffering any closings, but appears to getting it's six markets cleared of competitors.The auto group, The RLJ-McLarty-Landers Automotive Partnership, is owned by Robert L. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET), Mack McLarty, former Chief of Staff to President Clinton, and Steve J. Landers, a long-time auto dealer. While Johnson was an avid Hillary supporter, he's a long-time deep pocket for Democrats and McLarty campaigned for Obama.Though nearly 25% (24.8%) of all dealerships are being closed, none of the RLJ dealerships are being closed, and in the five of the six markets RLJ serves (the sixth is still being analyzed) 11 of the 13 competing dealerships are being closed. That's nearly 85% (84.6%) of the competition eliminated. That's one way to succeed in business - get the government to order your competition closed."Here's Kevin's full post!
Now....let's get this analysis completed and expose it through the blogosphere. It'll be ignored as long as possible by the Lame Stream Media.
This is reallyB-I-G!!!
, well to most of us. The MSM will find it unimportant as it does not fit the model they have been given by Obama.
The Examination is Before You....You May Begin!
Suddenly our PrezBo is being examined by the "evil axis" folks....in depth!
What will he do?
N. Korea sez, "We'll do what we want, when we want! Here, watch these missiles, oh, and check out our new nukes!"
Iran sez, "6 Military vessels to the Gulf of Aden; you wanna say something about it toughie?"
Meanwhile Afghanistan is in trouble. Pakistan is stumbling along with nukes in hand, and our PrezBo is digging the largest, deepest money pit ever envisioned by anyone.
& He's only begun to spend, despite acknowledging "We are broke!"
I am sure, given his history, Obama is going to find some other topic to discuss.
May Day - May Day - May Day!!!!!
Has anyone else noticed the change?
The Lame Stream Media will not.
Bush-in-charge.....Supreme Court opening. Dems, "We need to take our time and explore the entire field of the candidate's experience. We cannot rush this very important decision."
Obama-in-charge......Supreme Court opening. Obama, "It is critical we approve this nominee quickly."
I guess Obama's theme has become clear. Every item, every appointment, is cause for the "May Day" explosion from the PrezBo. If he can hurry things through...there is no chance for finding reasons to discuss further. You know, such as the things wrong in bills since rammed through by this President.
DUH...To The Enth Degree.......
Tell me NOT Obamassiah......We cannot have run out of money in just 120 days!FROM DRUDGE....
My God, What can we do......?????OH WAIT!!!!! We can P-R-I-N-T Money!!!!!!
Bring on the folks who conjure best!
We need no stinking budget...we print money as we go!
Not Missing In Action, Just Acting Differently!
For those who missed my earlier post.....about a month ago....I am not lagging in my posts...just posting on our two month trip around much of this country in our motor home. I post stories of our travels, and pics such as this one from the Hoh Rain Forest located on Washington State's West coast.

PrezBo....You Are Scary!
The letter was written by Lou Pritchett, author of "Stop Paddling and Start Rocking the Boat." He is also a well-known speaker, savvy businessman, and the foremost leader in "change management." Several websites have claimed that Pritchett's letter first saw the light of day when it was published in the New York Times. I checked the Times archives and could find no record of it. However, the letter IS out there and speaks for many of us at a very difficult time in the history of the United States. Dear President Obama, You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. - You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. - You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. - You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. - You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. - You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core. - You scare me because you lack humility and "class", always blaming others. - You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals that wish to see America fail. - You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the "blame America" crowd and deliver this message abroad. - You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector. - You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one. - You scare me because you prefer "wind mills" to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal, and shale reserves. - You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world. - You scare me because you have begun to use "extortion" tactics against certain banks and corporations. - You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. - You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. - You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. - You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do. - You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Reillys, and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view. - You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. - Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term, I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years. - Lou Pritchett
That pretty much sez it all for thinking people. No logical person can believe this man is not voiding much of our constitutional right and growing debt and government like topsy. I also fear for the permanent damage this man will do. By the time the folks who see him as the Obamassiah wake up to the damage it will be done, and he will have turned this country into a European-type government led country instead of the republic it was founded to be.
IT Ain't Over Til The FAT Lady Sings!!!!
The financial holders of "REAL PROPERTY" will not go quietly into the good night!
Time for a REALITY CHECK of the Obamassiah!

Obama Cheerios Effort Misguided?
While it is not clear how much of it is directly from President Obama, there is a definite effort by Government to claim Cheerios should be reclassified a drug. Their reasoning....it lowers cholesterol! By this line of reasoning, a Mayo Clinic report would indicate the Obama Troops once-again missed the target.
Cheerios didn't even make the top 5! We'd better form a new Obama administration group to reclassify all those actual....you know....DRUGS that lower cholesterol.
It is time for this administration to get out of the sand box and play adult games.
Scare Force One!!!!
Ah Yes....Ah Yes......Let us create a furor by flying a jet over NY....and then hide the photos....and the cost ($329,000) so we can ......er.....well.....er....I am sorry folks, I have no answer!
Thanks Obama for another "Amateur Night" for the Presidency. What a yokel!
Obama Threatens UK On Detainee Torture!

Dopes, or Dupes? You Obama folks just take your choice.
Hope & Change I Can Believe In!
Yessir! I am on board, be it a tax and spend DEM or a hapless, rudderless GOP official.
Do It!!! Elect new folks who actually C-A-R-E where we spend money, and how much we owe.
Liar, Liar, Pants-On-Fire!!!!!

What a PRINCE!
The DEMs deserve him....
Understand The Meaning of The Chrysler Deal
Neal Boortz cuts through the BS..."Thomas Lauria, a lawyer for top creditors, has officially filed a motion to stop the Chrysler bankruptcy. Lauria claims that the Obama administration has violated the Constitution by trying to devalue the senior creditors' holdings on behalf of junior creditors. What does Lauria base this on? Something called the 5th Amendment. Maybe you have heard of it. Just in case, here is a little reminder:No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.But wait ... as they say ... there's more! Lauria, who represents the group referred to as the non-TARP lenders, is going to ask that the bankruptcy court keep the names of his client confidential. Why would that be? Because they have been receiving threats. You can bet that some of the threats are coming from union members. These union goons like the idea of their pension debts being given priority to Chrysler's secured lenders, and I think we all know what union goons do when something happens they don't like. There was a time not too long ago when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms noted that the number one illegal use of explosives in the United States came at the hands of union members engaged in work actions.But there's another group threatening the secured non-TARP creditors. That would be the White House. Lauria and others have claimed that people within the Obama administration have made it clear that if any of these secured lenders get in the way of Obama's gift to the unions the White House will work to destroy their reputation. Now the White House denies this. What would you expect? But listen to the language ... Obama has attacked these people in public as being "vultures" and has painted them as evil capitalists who don't want to stand by the families of Chrysler workers. If he'll do this in public, what do you think his attack dogs will do in private?Even if you think Obama hung the moon; even if you're now calling him the best president this country ever had; you just have to recognize the danger in the precedent that's been set here. The United Auto Workers are getting priority for their unsecured Chrysler debt simply because they are political powerful. Now just how is that going to work out for us in the future? Do you want to live in a financial world where lenders base lending decision in part on the political prominence of the borrower?Giving unsecured creditors priority over secured lenders in bankruptcy proceedings .. now that's change you can believe in."
I await the outcry...the disgust...the revolt against Obama's blatant disregard for the rule of law.....I am not holding my breath.

Yes Sir, It Smells Like a Violation....!
Things You Don't Read About Obama....
The Lame Stream Media is full of coverage of the Obamas out-for-a-walk, and all about their new dog. However there are lots of things they find not newsworthy...."here is a small selection of news on the most powerful man on Earth which has been deemed unfit to print:
•Obama’s first two major bills alone, the "stimulus" and "omnibus," cost nearly twice as much as was spent on Iraq over six years – $1.2 trillion vs. $650 billion.
•Obama abandoned his campaign promise of "a net spending cut," his first annual deficit – not counting bailouts – being three times the worst deficit under President George W. Bush.
•Obama’s objective in his first G20 summit – commitments to spend our way to prosperity with massive stimulus boondoggles across the G20 – was rejected out of hand.
•Obama’s objective in his first NATO summit – commitments to combat troops for Afghanistan from "our European allies," which Obama and his party imagined were ready and willing to fight if only someone "enlightened" like him were running things – was predictably refused, with some more European non-combat contingents offered as a token.
•Obama’s Defence Department announced cuts of $1.4 billion to missile defence, the day after North Korea test-fired its long-range, multi-stage ballistic missile.
•Obama’s economics were criticized by Warren Buffet, whose endorsement had been candidate Obama’s highest economic credential.
•Obama reversed the free trade Bush policy that had allowed about 100 Mexican tractor-trailers into the United States, which the Mexican government immediately used as an excuse to levy tariffs on 90 American goods amounting to $2.4 billion in U.S. exports.
•Obama’s "tax cuts for 95 per cent" turned out to mean $13 a week from June to December, to be clawed back to $8 a week in January – as compared with President Bush’s 2008 tax rebates of $600 to $1,200 plus $300 per child, which were notably scoffed at during the election campaign by Michelle Obama.
•Obama’s campaign promise of a $3,000-per-employee tax credit for businesses that hired new workers – repeated ad nauseam for weeks before the election – was discreetly retired even before inauguration day.
•Obama abandoned his campaign promise that "lobbyists won’t work in my White House," waiving his no-lobbyist executive order or conveniently re-
defining his appointees’ past lobbying work to allow 30 lobbyists into his administration.
•Obama abandoned his campaign promise to reform earmarks, signing the omnibus bill which contained 8,816 of them.
•Obama took more money from AIG than any other politician in 2008 – over $100,000 – and signed into law the provision guaranteeing the AIG bonuses which later had him in front of the cameras "shaking with outrage" and siccing the pitchfork crowd on law-abiding citizens who had fulfilled their end of a contract and had their payment upheld by Obama’s own legislation."

You're NEXT GM!!!
Obama Socialist power play...
It is happening....and the Lame Stream Media are applauding...
150,000 Here; 150,000 There....Who Knows?
President "The One" Obama is off into flights of numbers fancy!
He has now announced his stimulous has saved or created 150,000 jobs already. Of course the numbers are pulled from the nearest cloud.....Fact Check This!
Given his penchant for shooting out numbers with almost as much validity as a "Slow" Joe Biden statement, I am guessing Obamassiah knows the Lame Stream Media will N-E-V-E-R ask him any embarrassing questions about where he pulled the number from!
Just a guess....
