Gov. Scott Walker Wows Iowans

There are only a handful of politicians who I believe have the fortitude and record to take on the entrenched self interest and good ole boys network in Washington D.C.  

Governor Scott Walker is one of them.  Not only did he defeat progressives in a blue state, he did so three times without compromising his conservative principles.  And believe me, people respect a man who stands for what he believes in.

Here is an excerpt from the on Governor Scott Walker’s reception in Iowa:

 The Wisconsin governor, in rolled-up shirtsleeves, paced the stage as he blasted big government and touted a long list of conservative reforms he's pushed through in blue Wisconsin.

The governor also showed a rhetorical flourish that's largely been absent from his previous campaigns, drawing the crowd to its feet multiple times.

"There's a reason we take a day off to celebrate the 4th of July and not the 15th of April," he said, almost yelling as his voice grew hoarse. "Because in America we value our independence from the government, not our dependence on it."

And then this:

When he said he won reelection as Milwaukee County Executive in an area where President Obama won by a two-to-one margin, some in the audience gasped.

 "If you get the job done the voters will actually stand up with you," he said before contrasting his record with Washington's deadlock.

Yes, voters will stand with a principled, conservative politician who practices what he preaches.  It’s too bad we didn’t have one in the past two presidential elections

The Federal Government Slave Ship

Point a gun at a person’s head and chances are he will do what you say. Redistributive laws are equivalent to an armed, street thug extorting money from hapless shopkeepers.  Do as he says or else.

The biggest crime syndicate in American history is run out of Washington D.C.  These slavers have sawed off their moorings – limited government as dictated by the U.S. Constitution, and are rounding up victims to row their treasure laden ship.  Hard working citizens will propel this luxury vessel at a steady and brisk pace.

Listen closely.  Do you hear all those politicians and their cronies partying in first class?  You can barely make out their laughter and champagne glasses clinking as they toast each other’s success.  It’s kind of hard to discern all that celebration over the steady drumming by our bureaucratic task masters.

What’s that moaning?  Why that’s the teat squawkers and illegal aliens in steerage.  They’re constantly grumbling and demanding taxpayers pick up the pace.

Sign up for Obamacare expires in February.  Record numbers of people are being forced to sign up or else.  No one can afford health insurance without a government subsidy.  It’s either pay a penalty, or go on substandard Medicaid; that is if you qualify.

Row, slave!  Row!

Saudi Arabia Builds Fence to Keep Invaders Out

Want to keep invaders out?  Learn from the Saudis.  They know how to take a threat seriously.  Take a look at the foundation of this wall; it goes 600 miles all the way through a desert.


What’s our excuse again?   


Obama's State of the Teat Address

Congratulations, America!  We’ve turned the page.  According to our illustrious president, we are in a new age of security and prosperity.  Let the milk and honey flow from the multi-teated state!  Come on, grab onto a nipple and start sucking.  Our lords and masters will make sure we never know want, because everything is free!

 Child Care, free!  College education, free!  Health care, free!  So sayeth the carnival barker behind the dais.  You ask, what is the price of admission to this federal government freak show?  Why, it’s a life of servitude to the state, yea!

What are you complaining about?  It’s free!

You aren’t feeling the love?  Obama’s middle class economics model isn’t working for you?  Surely, you’re mistaken.

What’s that?  Food prices are high?  Well, can’t you sign up for food stamps?  Under the Obama presidency we’ve had a 50 year record high participation rate.  Over 47 million people receive food stamps.  What’s one more!

Your health insurance premiums and deductibles have skyrocketed?  That’s too bad.  I’m sure you qualify for a government subsidy.  How about Medicaid?  Hell, states are expanding their rolls.   How can’t they with all that free money flowing out of Washington D.C.

One saving grace is gas prices are low.  But you know, Washington D.C. needs to raise taxes for all that infrastructure that needs to be maintained and built.  But don’t worry.  I’m sure there’s a government program out there somewhere for the fuel disadvantaged.  After all, Obama’s middle class economics is the new paradigm in this classic Marxist page turner.


Obama uses Democratic Operative as Plant During SOTU

How little does the Obama administration think of the American people, and their lapdogs in the press?  Little enough to use a democratic operative as a plant in the Anointed One’s State of the Union Address.  The Washington Free Beacon reported the following:

Rebekah Erler has been presented by the White House as a woman who was discovered by the president after she wrote to him last March about her economic hardships. She was showcased in the speech as proof that middle class Americans are coming forward to say that Obama’s policies are working.

Unmentioned in the White House bio of Erler is that she is a former Democratic campaign operative, working as a field organizer for Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.).

This also wasn’t the first time the White House used the former Democratic campaign staffer as a political prop. Obama spent a “day in the life” of Erler in June so that he could have “an opportunity to communicate directly with the people he’s working for every day.”

These people have no shame.
