I know that over the past twelve months things have been really tough on the tax paying citizens of this country. I also know what sucks the most about this is that it isn’t the average regular Joe’s fault. The truth of the matter is that it was bad regulation and corruption by key committee chairs in both houses of congress that started it, then corporate and organized labor greed that cemented the damage to our country.

As regular folks we all get up every morning put breakfast on the table, get the kids off to school, and get ourselves to work. We all do this with thoughts like how do I pay the electric bill or phone bill on time, or how do I make enough money to pay the expensive premiums for the insurance on my car, health, and home. In the meantime the job market is getting tighter and more demanding on us regular folk we also have to worry about losing our jobs because of downsizing, outsourcing, or going out of business.

Not one of us here who lives on Main Street ever thought of ways to get more money from lobbyists, big business donations to our re-election campaigns, or payoffs that could buy our votes, However that is how our government appears to operate. Our elected officials also seem to operate under the illusion that we work for them and not vice versa. I have to ask you just how absurd or obtuse does this sound to you the tax payer?

In addition to their obvious arrogance and I’m above the law for regular folks attitude. They also actually feel that they are entitled to the best healthcare our money can buy. Tax payer funded junkets around the world so they can go shopping. The politicians also expect blind obedience from us the masses because they actually believe that they are better than us.

Add to this disgusting mix of corruption and greed their attempts to insert more government into our lives and we that people are in serious trouble. They want to control our healthcare, which is one sixth of our economy. Tax us to death under Cap and Trade using the global warming lie as an excuse to do us in, while people like Al Gore get rich under this scheme. Not to mention take god out of the equation and relieve us of our rights to bear arms thereby giving up all of our other rights.

I am here to tell you that I fervently hope we vote out at least the worst parasites in both houses of congress in the 2010 mid-term elections. I am not limiting that statement to just the leeches on the left like Pelosi, Reid, Frank, and Dodd, but those on the right like McCain and the other RINO”S too. Maybe then we can get rid of Obama in 2012 and have a government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people.

That is all for today on Simple Man Politics. Of course this particular post is an opinion piece on my opinion, but the evidence shows what I say to be true, so I said it. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and that you enjoy this post. I also hope that you will exercise your right to vote, because voting is our main weapon for keeping our government under control. CIAO4NOW my friends!!!!!

Welcome back to Simple Man Politics my friends I know it has been a while since I have written anything and I am sorry. However life has a habit of getting in the way sometimes and you have to take care of business so you can do what you like to do. That has definitely been true in my case recently, but I am well on my way to a full political rant recovery, so please bear with me.

Today I am going to write a little bit about a guy I have been listening to for quite a while on the radio and who has recently gotten himself his own show on Fox News. The guy I am talking about is none other than The Stormin Mormon Glenn Beck. To say the least this guy is a human lightning rod and fireplug that seems to thrive on political controversy, and I think both political parties are scared of him, but the left most of all.

However the thing I would like to talk about today is an interview that he gave to Katie Couric recently. In this interview he discusses the 2008 Presidential Election and makes a startling public statement that I think really floored the Republican Party as well as the Democratic Party. He not only said that he would not have voted for Obama, but that he may have even supported Hillary Clinton over John McCain.

Now I will tell you that I was really surprised by this statement, but after hearing his explanation I understand why he said what he did. Yes Glenn Beck does agree with John McCain on foreign policy and national defense issues, but he seriously disagrees with McCain on some domestic policies. The most notable of these domestic policy issues are John McCain’s support of Cap and Trade, Amnesty for Illegal’s, and Campaign Finance Reform.

What Beck basically says is that we as a nation would be no better off and maybe even worse off with McCain than with Obama. He cites that with McCain supporting those domestic policies that our economy would be in just as bad a shape and that there would more than likely have been no opposition from conservative independents or Republicans. I think that Mr. Beck may be right about this.

While I am a conservative who had voted for John McCain in 2008 I am also an independent voter with no party affiliation. With hindsight being 20/20 I have to agree that John McCain would quite possibly have been a bad choice for America to make. Unfortunately I am not a great fan of Hillary Clinton either and I would have had a hard time to vote for her even though she is a hawk on defense and foreign policy as am I.

For now though it appears that Glenn Beck has the spotlight, the soapbox, and the microphone. He also has his own organization known as the 9/12 project, which is designed with getting the grass roots conservative movement motivated. While I don’t support all of Becks views I have to agree with him that we need to strictly adhere to our nation’s constitution if we are to get out of this economic mess and remain strong as well.

I for one will be keeping an eye on Glenn Beck to see if he winds up being just like all of the other media personalities out there who are floating their own agendas and telling the American people a bunch of lies. For now though it seems to appear that we are safe from this where he is concerned. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I will be back again soon my friends, CIAO4NOW!!!!!

It was just eight years ago today that the fabric of our nation was torn by an act of cowardice so indescribable, that it could have only been motivated by a religion of blind hatred. I am talking about the cowardly attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. There is also United Flight 93, which ended in a field in Shanksville PA, when the passengers finally took action against the swine that hoped to attack the White House.

I have been thinking a lot about what I can say about this tragedy today that hasn’t already been said in the last eight years, and I have come up with exactly bupkiss. Since this tragedy there have been countless memorials, tributes, speeches, and just plain old conversation and in that time it has all been said. All I can tell you from my point of view is don’t forget. Those who do forget their history will be doomed to repeat it.

Of course there are those out there that would like nothing better than for us to forget what happened on that September day. The shock for me is that they are not all on foreign soil, because they are right here at home as well. Some of them believe that the 9/11 attacks were a conspiracy. Others in our country just want it to go away as if it had never happened, because Muslims feel disrespected that we don’t forget about 9/11.

Then there is of course our fearless leader President Barack Hussein Obama. Obama just signed into law a measure this past April that has designated September 11th a National Day of Service. I am not sure exactly what that means, but there are those out there who believe this is an attempt to drain away the meaning of this day from the American people.

The logic that seems to be promoting this theory is that the progressive, socialist, radical elements of the extreme left fear this day. They fear 9/11 because it supposedly gives the conservative right Republican Party an advantage over the Liberal left Democratic Party. Their theory being that it allows Republicans to become activists against the Democrats efforts to negotiate with the very terrorists who are responsible for 9/11.

I don’t see how anyone can say that the tragedy we as a nation suffered on 9/11 with the loss of more than 3000 deaths can give anyone an edge. The truth is that we had lost our edge on national defense and that is why the attacks were successful. The only people with a geo political agenda that thought they had benefited were the terrorists, but they found out really fast that they were wrong.

Since that dreadful day and in no small part due to the efforts of then President George Walker, Bush and his government we have regained the upper hand. For the record since that dreadful day there has been no successful attempt to attack us inside our own borders as well. Unfortunately I feel that we may lose the hard won edge that we have fought to regain since the supreme apologist and his cohorts have taken power.

However as for myself September 11th will always be a day for me to remember what was done to our nation and our people. September 11th will also serve as a reminder to me of what we should do to any person or group who dares to attack us again, and that is kill them all and let GOD sort them out later. We should show them no mercy and take no prisoners, just waterboard, torture, and then kill the lot of them.

I hope you all have a great and awesome September 11th, and remember to never forget. I will see you all next week my friends, CIAO4NOW!!!!!

The last few months have seen a lot of hot, heavy, and intense debate on the issue of healthcare reform, or health insurance reform, which ever it is now. I can’t remember which it is they seem to change according to how President Obama’s road blocked by protesters or his mood at the time. I simply cannot wait to see which it will be when he gives his speech to congress today.

Frankly I am very surprised that President Obama would even go this route in an attempt to gain support for healthcare reform when he can’t even get his own party on board with him. Nancy Pelosi and others in the Democratic leadership of the lower house have said they would not support a bill without a public option, while other house Democrats have said they wouldn’t support a bill with a public option.

The Democratic Party is not the only opposition that President Obama is facing when it comes to healthcare or health insurance reform either. There is been a torrential flood of opposition to this bill from Main Street as well. I am talking about actual citizens whom this bill will directly affect both young and old alike. Unfortunately for the Democrats and the ram it through style these people have read the house bill.

The evidence of tax payer dissatisfaction has been obvious in many Town Hall style meetings held over the August recess, especially at the Town Hall events held by Congressmen and Senators who are members of the Democratic Party. It has not done these members any favors to have organized labor and groups like acorn astroturfing for them either. Most of these politicians know now that if they vote in support of this bill it could cost them their re-elections.

Yet none of this opposition seems to be very important to President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid. All they can see is their chance to use and abuse the power they currently have because their party controls both houses of congress and the White House. They never even felt the need to read the damn bill and understand it, because the felt that they have the right to pass it whether it hurts the American people or not.

Of course President Obama will give his speech without going into specifics, but with the belief that his words alone will be enough for everyone to suddenly realize that he is right simply because he says so. Of course Pelosi and Reid will still push their own agenda’s whether they are in line with Obama’s agenda or not. In the end what we will all hear and see is business as usual in Washington, which in this case is nothing but more spending and deficits the tax payer will be responsible for

That is all for now from Simple Man Politics on this subject. I will however leave all of you with another thought and that is what kind of damage will the Cap and Trade bill do? Make no mistake that is for sure the next big fight we have against big government and out of control taxing and spending. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday my friends CIAO4NOW!!!!!

Welcome back to Simple Man Politics on this Labor Day holiday my friends. I thought long and hard about whether or not I should write a blog for today before I decided it was the right thing to do. The reason I think it was the right decision for me to write one today is because tomorrow President Obama is going to give a speech to children in public schools that accept tax money for their programs.

Now I personally do not have anything against President Obama addressing our children if he is promoting better education in our public schools. I also think that he could accomplish the same thing with a simple P.S.A. (Public Service Announcement) However I believe that President Obama’s original intent was not to promote better education in our public schools.

I and many others whom I know and trust believe that his original intent with this speech was to bring politics into the classroom and give him a platform from which to express his ideological views and impress them upon impressionable children through indoctrination. This is evidenced by the lesson plan that was to be attached to the speech he planned to give that required our children to write down how he inspires them and how they can help him promote his agenda.

I really don’t like the idea of our public schools being used as a political tool to indoctrinate our children with any political party ideology or beliefs. I also realize that it is almost impossible to stop this from happening considering the liberal political influence that already exists in most of our universities as well as most of our nation’s school boards which are infested with the same ideological beliefs.

As a parent I am more concerned with my children’s education than their political beliefs. I do not feel that my children need to be worried about what their political orientation is going to be right now. That is because they will ultimately make that decision when they are able to become involved in the election process. I am not alone in this belief either, because I am hearing the same thing from parents all around this country.

As far as I am concerned, if the speech Obama intends to deliver to our children on Tuesday September 8th 2009 has nothing whatsoever to do with my children’s classes then it should not be aired in any school public or private. By the same token I think that they ought to trash the lesson plan for the speech also. It is the schools job to teach my children academically and my job to teach them everything else. It is not some politician’s job to do either.

I have already instructed my children’s school that they are not to subject my children in any way, shape, or form to both the speech and the lesson plan. After I had informed the school of my wishes there was a meeting at the schools district office where it was decided that the schools in the district would neither air the speech, or distribute the lesson plan. However that may not be the decision of all the school districts in our country.

That is all for now from Simple Man Politics my friends. I hope all of you who are parents take note of this attempt by Obama to make your children’s school a political battleground and put in our two cents worth and stop it. However I also hope that this speech is nothing more than an attempt to just keep our children interested in school. I hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day, CIAO4NOW!!!!!

Protecting our country I am sure is a fulltime job, and I will bet that it isn’t an easy one either. I think that this is true considering the problems that President Clinton had doing so in his eight years in the white house. I am not being facetious in the least with this statement considering the terrorist attacks that had occurred on his watch and his only one time apparent response to these attacks as well.

Let’s take a look at the things that had happened to our country while President Clinton was in office too. We had the first World Trade Center bombing, which had happened on our own soil. There was the Khobar Towers attack in Saudi Arabia against our military personnel there as well as the USS Cole bombing in Yemen. We also had two US embassies attacked and bombed in Africa by Al Qaeda.

I am sure that after a long and intensive deliberation that a missile strike against an aspirin factory in the country of Sudan was an appropriate response for our President considering all of the attacks and subsequent deaths of American citizens that had occurred. I am also sure that having been offered custody of Bin Laden no less than three times and refusing them all was the right thing for our President to do too.

As a matter of international public record we all know what President Bush had to contend with after the 2000 election, which he won. He had to deal with the dreadful 4 pronged attack that occurred on September 11th, 2001 against the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and an almost hit on the White House that resulted in a commercial airliner going down in a field in Pennsylvania. In total more than 3000 American lives were lost

Along the way he also had to deal with a rogue criminal regime who threatened the world with WMD’s, (weapons of mass destruction) and the faulty intelligence from many sources around the world that had placed them there. Of course President Clinton had degraded our own intelligence services abilities to gather real time and excellent intelligence, but Saddam Hussein didn’t happen on his watch.

All during President Bush’s two terms in office he fought two wars. One against terrorism and a government who supported it in Afghanistan, and another against a rogue despotic regime that threatened its neighbors with unimaginable horrors and that had documented ties to terrorist groups. President Bush did everything that he could and thought necessary to fight these animals and protect our nation and people.

Of course now we have as our President Barack Hussein Obama who won the 2008 Presidential election handily. Since his election he has sought the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. He is also pursuing investigations and possible prosecutions of CIA personnel who had conducted interrogations that gave us excellent intelligence against the terrorists and stopped many more attacks against us both here and abroad.

Obama has also made overtures to rogue nations that support terrorism, such as Iran. He has also shown almost no support for Israel and its right to defend itself against the wolves that are at their door day in and day out. He even gave his first televised speech to a Muslim audience on their turf and in their press identifying himself as one of them. He also is losing the ground President Bush had gained in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Last but not least his domestic policies are a clear and present danger to our national security as well.

Now I will tell you that when it comes to the defense of our nation and people I want protection that we can believe in instead of just rhetoric. I don’t think that President Obama has given us anything else but rhetoric. As far as Bush goes you may or may not like him, but he took no B.S. from anyone when it came to defending this country from its enemies and did everything he thought necessary to kick butt. It is unfortunate for us though that he couldn’t defeat our enemies in congress like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

That is all from Simple Man Politics for this week, but I will be back next week with more. Have a great day and an awesome weekend my friends CIAO4NOW!!!!!
