Last Olympic games in 2016 due to Global Warming says Tokyo Governor

It could be that the 2016 Games are the last Olympics in the history of mankind Global warming is getting worse. We have to come up with measures without which Olympic Games could not last long. Scientists have said we have passed the point of no return. Shintaro Ishihara, Tokyo governor

One has to note the part where he says “Scientists have said we have passed the point of no return.”  So there is nothing to be done since there is no return from here.

The Republican health care plan is this: Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly.

Two words: unstable, lunatic.

He needs to read what Former Democrat Colorado Governor Richard Lamm said in March 1984 regarding the terminally ill aged: “We’ve got a duty to die and get out of the way with all of our machines and artificial hearts and everything else like that and let the other society, our kids, build a reasonable life.” (Source:

Jail for not buying health insurance or paying the fine.

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a note from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold stating that under section 7203 people who failed to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance would be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty.

The Politico and others are acting as if this is surprising.  It is not.  Jail at the point of a gun is the final “argument” from the government.

Our freedom slipping away day by day.  Loss of freedom for any reason, even one that some say is a ‘good cause’ is evil.

Have you no shame? Have you no decency?

Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie, spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come and to those who left in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity and you brought honor to your countries. But to those who gave this Holocaust denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere — have you no shame? Have you no decency?

What a disgrace.  What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations.   Now perhaps, some of you think that this man and his odious regime, perhaps they threaten only the Jews.  Well if you think that you are wrong, dead wrong.

General Welfare clause of the Constitution

James Madison, the man who wrote the Constitution, would disagree that the “General Welfare” clause means that the government’s job is to take care of us:

I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on the objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents. —  James Madison

With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” –James Madison

If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions. It is to be remarked that the phrase out of which this doctrine is elaborated is copied from the old Articles of Confederation, where it was always understood as nothing more than a general caption to the specified powers.” James Madison, letter to Edmund Pendleton, January 21, 1792

Energy Secretary Dr. Steven Chu says we are “teenage kids”

The American public…just like your teenage kids, aren’t acting in a way that they should act. The American public has to really understand in their core how important this issue is. Dr. Chu, September 21, 2009

When government runs and funds sciences, the sciences are lost.  No more scientific inquiry.  Too much time licking the boots of their masters.  Remember there can be no scientific inquiry when the government controls you.  Government scientist is a contradiction in terms.  Let’s make a few points clear here:

1. You first, Dr Chu.  Then Al Gore, Prince Charles and all the other blow-hards running around in private jets, multiple huge houses (and so many some Members of Congress “forget” about them). You try it first.

2. It is none of your business what we do, this was founded as a free country with strict Constitutional limits of the powers of government.  Dr. Steven Chu needs to read his American History before he continues to spout fascist-socialist nonsense.

3. Fascism, statism and socialism are not what we want here.

4. Double-speak, thought police, might be acceptable in a totalitarian regime, but not in the United States.

5. Look at sunspots.  Read this [Climate modeling], and this [Al Gore’s house], and this [each leader at U.N. Climate Summit has convoy of vehicles].  “Do as I say, not as I do,” seems to be the motto.

We are not children, Dr. Chu.  We are a country of free individuals and taking orders from crack-pots is not in the plan.

Dr. Steven Chu needs to start with examining his history, his facts, and the Constitution.  After he is done all that, come back and talk to us again.  But the next time Dr. Steven Chu speaks to or about the American people, Chu better do it as equals.  An elitist, authoritarian, imperial set of rulers in Washington?  Is that what you want?

What it’s saying is…that we’re not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore.

What it’s saying is…that we’re not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore. President Obama, September 20, 2009

Tell that to the top 1% of taxpayers who paid nearly 40% of all Federal Taxes in 2006 and the top 10% who paid more than 70% of all taxes.

Mr. President, the solution is not to impose a tax on everyone (yes, it is a tax, even state-controlled AP agrees).  The solution is freedom.  With each person having the freedom to buy the policy that they need or want, doing things such as removing the mandates using carrots for people to buy coverage.

We must give credit where credit it due, if the Obama administration really believed that “we’re not going to have other people carrying your burdens for you anymore” and implemented a policy based on liberty and individual rights and individual responsibility, they would go a long way to having a successful presidency.  Going the opposite direction, towards authoritarian, statists, fascist, socialist systems is the way to fail.  And not just fail in terms of a political agenda, but fail in terms of losing liberty and ensuring that the long slide towards collectivism accelerates, perhaps to the point where it is unrecoverable.

Race not overriding issue.

Are there people out there who don’t like me because of race? I’m sure there are.  That’s not the overriding issue here. – President Obama in CNN interview, September 18, 2009

Giving credit where credit is due here.  Unlike former President Carter, at least President Obama has a clue on this.  Race may be an issue to a small minority, but for the vast majority it is disagreement on freedom vs statism.

Who is being sold out? The unemployed and the rest of the country!

“If anything, this debate underscores the necessity of passing comprehensive immigration reform and resolving the issue of 12 million undocumented people living and working in this country once and for all.” President Obama, September 16, 2009

Now, in Washington-speak “undocumented” means that they are here illegally – they broke the law of the United States to get here.  So 12 million people came here seeking freedom and opportunity that they didn’t have in their own country, but their first act here was to break the law.

Now consider that approximately 13.2 million people were unemployed in April 2009 and around 14.9 million in August 2009 for a 9.7 percent unemployment rate.

14.9 million minus 12 million equals 2.9 million.  What is the unemployment rate then?

There is nothing wrong with immigration, but make it legal.
