The Information Minister unvails his American Platform for success

Let’s say a few things out loud shall we to get things started. America is the greatest country in the world. We are not perfect but we are the best that has been created in the history of mankind. The Constitution is not an open ended document. Profit is not a bad word. America has the best health care on the planet. Global warming is a theory not a religion. The Government has its limits. Wall Street IS Main Street and Main Street IS Wall Street, the country is one. And lastly the Founders never meant for us to just give this a shot and if it doesn’t work or it’s get hard just change to whatever Europe is doing.

Now for my Platform for American success.


If America has resources then we need to use them. Responsible drilling for oil, coal and natural gas, supplemented with green technologies is a major key to the success of the country.  We need to face the fact that this planet will run on oil and coal for decades.  That however, does not mean we do not explore cleaner resources, Nuclear among them.  If we truly want to reduce our influence in the Middle East and reduce the Middle East influence in this country we need to drill here it’s that simple.  Now what will all this expansion mean? Something Nancy Pelosi likes to say...jobs, jobs, jobs.  Union jobs, private sector jobs, large and small business alike will greatly benefit from this growth.  Everything has its place and there is room for both so get over it and start drilling.


Stop spending our money recklessly!  The Democrats have been in control of the house since 2006 and control of everything since 2008.  Obama states that the Republicans have no plan, well we’ve seen your plan for the last 2 years and it’s not working.  What is your plan going forward, SPEND MORE, TAX MORE, and BORROW MORE?  Freeze Government spending, salaries, and hiring, until this mess is cleared up.  STOP blaming Bush.  We don’t care anymore.  Obama was elected for change but all he has given us is “To go forward you put the car in (D) if you want to go back you put the car in (R).”  Who the hell does he think he’s talking too, a bunch of 2 year olds?  The country is bleeding and he’s trying to make witty metaphors.  And to the Republicans, don’t make a big deal about 3000 page bills that nobody reads then when you regain control you turn around and do the same thing.  I’m keeping a strong eye on you.  Give the citizens the tools for their own success and get out of the way.  Sorry but the Government cannot bestow success to the citizenry we have to earn it all by ourselves.  Support Israel.

Tell the world that Gitmo is open for business.  Treat terrorists as terrorists.  No civilian courts.  Do what we have to do to keep the country safe.  And yes sometimes that means doing more them just asking nicely. The terrorist are playing for keeps we need to do the same.


Keep the Bush cuts for the top earners and cut taxes even more for the rest of the population.  Being able to keep more of YOUR money and spending and or saving as YOU see fit will stimulate the economy.  Truly cut taxes for ALL business big & small.  I support tax incentives to business to keep jobs here.  Can you picture the Founders walking around telling people, “Hey you over there, yes you, you make too much money.  Give it to the Government and we’ll spend for you.” That includes not hitting my family with a huge Death tax after I die.


Like it or not they’re here to stay.  Unions have value by providing support for the worker when there was none in the past.  However, I support the right to keep the proposed unionization of a business a secret vote. If the vote is approved then the owner has to deal with it. If the union is turned down, then call it good and walk away.  In addition, for both private and public sector unions suing or striking to receive raises when the company or government is either massively in debt or about to go bankrupt is just stupid.  The idea of raises regardless only hurt matters, it never helps.


Allow them to go bankrupt.  Make all parties stand in front of a judge and work it out.  If that means pensions take a hit, so be it. $0.75 on the dollar is better than nothing.  The Private sector has to do this all the time and yet the sun comes up every morning.


Repeal Obama Care ASAP.  Remove the restrictions so Insurance companies can compete across state lines.  This increases competition exponentially, driving down cost, while maintaining the level of care we are accustom too.  However, keep the preexisting conditions provision.  I agree that one should not be turned down for any reasons but again insurance companies need to mitigate their risk, so in this case a high risk pool needs to be established.


Stop fooling around and really secure them.  Build a big ass fence, call it a shovel ready project and get to it. No Amnesty.  A country without borders ceases to be a country.  Moreover, a country without out a secure border loses its sovereignty.  You get caught you go to the back of the line, sorry not cuts.  Fine businesses that hire illegals.  Use the Mexican example for what they do with illegal’s...look it up.


First of all Americans are liberators not occupiers.  Give them everything they need to do their job.  And if that job means they go and kick some ass then so be it.  There is a reason this country is so great and the Military is a major part of that.  I do think we do need to review our presences around the globe.  As in where our post WWII peace keeping bases are located.  If that review means relocation then I support it.  We need to think and act and react knowing that there is a lot of people and countries that want to do America and its interest a great amount of harm. (See the “kick some ass” statement for possible reply)


Get off your ass and thank the country you live in.  A lot of great people died to give you the freedoms you now enjoy.  When you’re walking down the street lift your eyes up for a change, lift your head up and face your future.  Stop blaming other for your own circumstances.  Take nothing for granted, especially your government.  Don’t just vote for the same party over and over because that’s just what you do.  Be willing to accept when your party really does not reflect the way you truly feel.  Or at least be willing to entertain the other parties idea before you decide who you are going to vote for.  Moreover, demand more accountability from your representatives.  They work for us not the other way around.

This country is great because of our diversity not because we pit one demographic over another.  How can the country survive if all were doing is pointing out that this person makes more than me.  Or it’s not fair that this company makes in our opinion too much money compared to the money I earn.  Guess what you can always quit.

Here's your plan now get to it!
You know I’m right

My comment on the mosque at Ground Zero

The question I have is why is the mosque at Ground Zero being fast tracked for a 9/11/11 grand opening. And Ground Zero is still a hole in the ground?  Should'nt we push to get the memorial built to honor the dead before we worry showing the world how politically correct we are?

Check out this video, its worth the 6 minutes.

Democratic strategy going into the fall elections

Blame Bush (again)...don't even try to talk about accomplishments and blame Bush. Remind everyone that it was Bush and the republicans who got us into this mess, but don't let them remind you that the democrats have been in complete control of both houses since 2006.  And Obama had three years to show how his plan would be the best for the nation ( 1 year of preelection of I'm the only "one" who can fix this and 2 years of his practical failed attempts).

In additon, don't remind anyone that Obama voted yes for all the Bush spending that Obama now said has lead us into a ditch.

Obama has had two acts with no success.

Act one his ideas...HOPE & CHANGE-sounds great but not much substance

Act two...well were living the implementations of those grand Obama ideas and the results are hard to argue with.

Do we really need to give team Obama a third act just to see how it turns out??

Can the country afford another "X" amount of years of team Obama putting agenda over the citizen.

And lastly,

You'll hear that the democrats really did not convey or "sell" all the great things Obama has done for the country.  In other words we're too ignorant to understand the complexity of the messages brought down from the mountain and deliveried onto us.

We understand everything Mr President and that's exactly why you are going to lose.

Its time to put your money where your mouth is and join me in my pleage to vote team Obama out of office.

Who's with me???

Obamacare Only Looks Worse Upon Further Review

My fellow patriots,

Before we all go over the cliff in the next elections if Obama wins. please read the below and think about this the next time you vote.
Obamacare Only Looks Worse Upon Further Review: Kevin Hassett

By Kevin Hassett - Aug 1, 2010 8:00 PM CT

Kevin Hassett

One of the more illuminating remarks during the health-care debate in Congress came when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told an audience that Democrats would “pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it, away from the fog of controversy.”

That remark captured the truth that, while many Americans have a vague sense that something bad is happening to their health care, few if any understand exactly what the law does.

To fill this vacuum, Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, the top House Republican on the Joint Economic Committee, asked his staff to prepare a study of the law, including a flow chart that illustrates how the major provisions will work.

The result, made public July 28, provides citizens with a preview of the impact the health-care overhaul will have on their lives. It’s a terrifying road map that shows Democrats have launched America on the most reckless policy experiment in its history, the economic equivalent of the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Before discussing what the law means for you, we have to look at what it does to government. That’s where the chart comes in handy. It includes the new fees, bureaucracies and programs and connects them into an organizational chart that accounts for the existing structure. It’s so carefully documented that a line connecting two structures cites the legislative language that created the link.

Ornate System

This clearly is a candidate for most disorganized organizational chart ever. It shows that the health system is complex, yes, but also ornate. The new law creates 68 grant programs, 47 bureaucratic entities, 29 demonstration or pilot programs, six regulatory systems, six compliance standards and two entitlements.

Getting that massive enterprise up and running will be next to impossible. So Democrats streamlined the process by granting Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius the authority to make judgments that can’t be challenged either administratively or through the courts.

This monarchical protection from challenges is extended as well to the development of new patient-care models under Obama’s controversial recess appointment, Donald Berwick, whom Republicans are calling the rationer-in-chief. Berwick will run the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, where he can experiment with ways to use administrative fiat to move our system toward the socialized medicine of Europe, which he has at times embraced.

Closer to Home

A sprawling, complex bureaucracy has been set up that will have almost absolute power to dictate terms for participating in the health-care system. That’s what the law does to government. What it does to you is worse.

Based on the administration’s own numbers, as many as 117 million people might have to change their health plans by 2013 as their employer-provided coverage loses its grandfathered status and becomes subject to the new Obamacare mandates.

Those mandates also might make your health care more expensive. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that premiums for a small number of families who buy their insurance privately will rise by as much as $2,100.

The central Obamacare mechanism for increasing insurance coverage is an expansion of the Medicaid program. Of the 30 million new people covered, 16 million will be enrolled in Medicaid. And you could end up in the program whether you want it or not. The bill states that people who apply for coverage through the new exchanges or who apply for premium-subsidy credits will automatically be enrolled in Medicaid if they qualify.

Hurting the Elderly

To pay for this expansion, the bill takes $529 billion from Medicare, with roughly 39 percent of the cut coming from the Medicare Advantage program. This represents a large transfer of resources, sacrificing the care of the elderly in order to increase the Medicaid rolls.

For all this supposed reform, you, the American taxpayer, can expect a bill to the tune of $569 billion.

Front and center among the new taxes is the 40 percent excise tax on those lucky people with so-called Cadillac health plans. The higher insurance costs that are driven by the government mandates will push many more ordinary plans into Cadillac territory.

If the idea of taxing people with coverage deemed too good doesn’t bother you, maybe the new 3.8 percent tax on investment income will. That will apply even to a small number of home sales, those that generate $250,000 in profit for an individual or $500,000 for a married couple.

In vivid color and detail, Congressman Brady’s chart captures the huge expansion of government coming under Obamacare. Harder to show on paper is the pain it will cause.

Will America prevail???
