The Volt Has No Juice

March 4, 2012

  I have written here many times that Delaware is little more than a scaled down version of the national agenda of the liberal Democrat party, and Gov. Markell is merely a puppet for the Obama administration. Not really surprising since Vice Pres. Biden runs the Democrat party here in the state.

  Well it wasn’t that long ago that I wrote about the fact that Fisker Motors,the creator of a hybrid electric car, would be laying off about a quarter of their Delaware employees due to faltering sales, this even as gasoline prices continue to rise. Fisker was touted by the Markell administration as being the center piece of economic recovery here in the state of Delaware. It was seen, by Delaware liberals, as  the jewel in the crown of greeny technology ment to replace traditional energy sources.

  Like the Obama administration, Gov. Markell here in Delaware has been attempting to force this green technology onto the people and the market by subsidizing such technology in an attempt to make the new untried and unproven green technology seem competitive. It hasn’t worked here in Delaware any better than it has worked on the national level.

  Just as we have seen here in Delaware with Fisker and Blue Water Wind, we have seen on the national level these green subsidized companies going under, or struggling at best, Solyndra is the most notable of the federally funded companies that have failed.

  That was until it was announced that GM will again suspend production of the Chevy Volt, another plug-in hybrid electric car meant to replace our need for reliable transportation with a product that can travel around forty miles between charges.

  When you factor in the $41,000.00 sticker price, or even the price of $33,00.00 after government subsidies meant to encourage sales, it is no wonder that no one is buying this product. There is also the fact that the Volt has been under the micro-scope of a federal investigation to see if there is a risk of the car’s batteries catching fire. Of course the government found that there is no more risk of fire than in a normal gasoline run car, not surprising since the federal government has a vested interest in GM. Can you say “conflict of interest”?

  This latest suspension of production on the Volt is the third since the car went on sale, due to the fact that dealers already have more on their lots than they can sell. This suspension will mean that 1,300 workers will be out of work at the Detroit plant were the Volt is assembled.

   The Obama administration can’t even blame lagging sales on the economy since U.S. auto sale have been surging.

  It is time that the liberals and the Democrats face the fact that no amount of government subsidies can replace the tried and true facts of supply and demand. The people of the United States don’t want this technology which is not a car that is convenient for everyday use.

  It is time that the voters in Delaware and the nation send a clear message this November, that we want lower gasoline prices, so we want increased domestic oil production along with the lifting of other regulations and mandates that have added to the cost of gas at the pumps. That we want the government to get out of the business of picking winners and losers in the market by trying to manipulate through artificial pressures who is and isn’t competitive and to stop propping up with stolen tax dollars those companies that the government seeks to promote.

  This means no state dollars for Fisker Motors Gov. Markell, and no federal dollars for GM Pres. Obama .

The Chickens, Are Coming Home To Roost

October 6, 2011

  It seems as if Pres. Obama and his cavalcade of crooks are beginning to crack around the edges.

  His failed attempts to right a failing economy has his polling numbers falling faster than, well really there is nothing to compare them to.

   As he calls on congress to pass his tax bill, that he like to call a jobs bill, his pet Sen. Harry Reid has put the brakes on it while he guts the parts that would keep even tax and spend Democrats from being re-elected.

  Then there is the whole AG Eric Holder issue. You know the one. The one where the leading law enforcement agent in the nation lied to congress about his knowledge of the illegal gun running operation. The one being overseen by the DOJ.

  Of course we can’t forget the best demonstration of the President’s corruption. The $535 million dollar tax payer guaranteed loan to a solar panel company that the administration had been warned about as being in fiscal trouble.

  This of course is Solyndra,that  filed for bankruptcy. But the story doesn’t end there. Like any good horror show there is always the surprise at the end.

  It seems that the head of the Loan Programs Office, Jonathan Silver is resigning. Of course the administration is saying that this has nothing to do with the fact that Mr. Silver was in charge of giving away $535 million tax dollars to a failing pie in the sky green energy front for the Obama agenda.

  Mr. Silver plans to join the organization Third Way as a “distinguished visiting fellow.”  Well he certainly has distinguished himself with overseeing nearly $35 billion dollars of tax payer money being paid out to other green energy companies in the past two years. We have to wonder how many more Solyndras are out there waiting to go bust.

   So with all of these ongoing investigations into the Obama administration’s mis-handling of so many different things, it would seem as if the Chicago way, is going to bring Mr. Obama down like Al Capone.

Are We On The Verge Of Tyranny ?

August 10, 2011

   Is the current economic melt down leading us to the verge of tyranny ?

   I have never been one of those who has encouraged people to hoard food and water for the coming apocalypse. I have always called on citizens to get more involved in the political system to bring about the change they seek. I believe that talk of doom and gloom is counter to the national well-being.

  There are of course many out there that feel that we are on the edge of destruction. That the people who are living on the government hand outs will riot in the streets. Of course there is plenty of reason to feel this way. We need only look to Europe for evidence of such behavior. Most recently, London is burning due to class warfare. Two women interviewed said that they were happy that the riots were taking place. They said the rioters were, “showing the rich people and the police that they could do what they wanted to”.

  We should be concerned here at home as well. We have people in the highest offices of government who play the class warfare game everyday. Including the President of the United States. When we get daily press releases from the White House telling the poor and middle class that the “RICH PEOPLE” aren’t paying their share and that it is the “RICH PEOPLE’S” fault that the economy is failing, how long will it be before we see similar outbreaks of violence right here at home?

  History shows that it is such class warfare tactics, that are used by tyrants to rouse people to rise up in violence to do the work of creating the crisis that a tyrant needs to take complete control of a nation.

  I believe we are seeing the leading edge of an attempt to silence political opposition by the Democrats, the media and the President himself.

  During the President’s press conference on Monday,  in reaction to the down grading of the U.S. credit rating to AA+ from it historically held AAA rating, the President said something that troubles me. It should trouble all citizens of the nation.

   As the president was speaking of the down grading he said that, ” those who down graded our credit rating didn’t do it because they doubted our ability to pay our debt. They did it because they doubted our political system’s ability to act”.

   I think that this is a very telling statement. The President didn’t say the two parties ability to act. He didn’t even say the Republicans’ ability to act. He said our political system. I believe the President was projecting his own views of our political system upon those who down graded our credit limit. I believe that the President believes that our representative republic is a failed experiment. I also believe he would gladly see it changed into a fascist state, where one man had the authority to make the changes that he see as being necessary.

  When we look at this statement by the President, along with statements made by other Democratic leaders such as John Kerry and also the media. We should all be concerned about our freedoms.

  We had a drum beat from the media calling the down grade the “TEA Part downgrade”. This was an attempt to lay blame on the largest and strongest opposition to the President and his party. We then had Sen. John Kerry saying on the morning show on MSNBC, “Morning Joe”, that the media was not living up to its responsibility by giving equal time and weight to certain points of view that he termed, as not being credible.

  If we look at all of this together we start to see a pattern that is clearly leading to the possibility of political suppression. We could see a time when the President decides that certain groups are of such danger to the nation that they must be silenced.

  This my friends is tyranny. If we allow our political leaders the authority to decide which group is credible and which speech is free, then we risk losing every freedom we have known from the Founding of this nation.  I am not a reactionary person. I do not preach revolution. But I do warn all citizens to listen with open ears. Things are being said that go against the Founding Principles of this nation. They cannot be allowed to grow for much longer, or they will strangle freedom.

 2012 may be the last chance for freedom loving people to take back the nation that is being stolen right before their eyes. We cannot fail, for if we do, may God save our souls.

Has Mitch McConnell Lost His Mind?

July 12, 2011

 Here is link to a story explaining Sen. Mitch McConnell’s idea to give away the farm.   http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2011/07/mitch_mcconnell_doesnt_care_ab.html

 Has Mitch McConnell lost his mind. Just when the House Republicans have Pres. Obama going down for the third time on reducing the debt and amount of spending, Sen. Mitch McConnell doesn’t just throw the President a life line for raising the debt ceiling, he rides out on a jet-ski and gives him a ride.

  And why would Sen. McConnell do this? Politics!

  Hey! I ‘m all in favor of doing everything we can to defeat Pres. Obama. But not if it means taking the nation further down the road of ruin. I am hoping to at least see this nation back on the road to a representative republic form of government before I leave it to my child. To be willing to add more debt just to win an election, to me is a dangerous game. What if this plan works the way Sen. McConnell hopes and the president is able to raise the debt ceiling,with no tax cuts and still the Republicans fail to remove him from office. We will have given him powers not intended for the executive branch and four more years.

 Mitch McConnell, it would seem is willing to make Pres. Obama, King Obama.

  Did I fall asleep and miss where Mitch McConnell decided to change parties?

  It is this McCain mentality that has doomed the GOP to failure. Just when we have them on the ropes, some establishment Republican decides it is time to compromise.
  COULD WE PLEASE JUST STOP IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obamacare Spurs Doctor Shortage Crisis The healthcare reform bill enacted last year will significantly increase the number of Americans with health insurance and exacerbate an already looming doctor shortage. The Association of American Medical Colleges reported in 2010 that the United States will need an additional 130,000 doctors — general-practice physicians and specialists — in 15 years, 20 percent more doctors than are currently practicing. But medical school enrollment has been essentially flat, and about a third of American physicians are over the age of 55 and likely to retire by 2020. Making matters worse, Congress in 1996 capped the number of new doctors Medicare would pay to train. And President Barack Obama’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform proposed cutting Medicare funding for training even further, by $60 billion through 2020. “If this cut is enacted, the doctor shortage would get far worse,” The Wall Street Journal reported. At the same time, the number of patients is certain to increase. Baby boomers will be retiring at the rate of 10,000 per day, and they will require more medical care as they age. Plus, Obamacare will boost the number of Americans with health insurance or participating in Medicaid, which will mean greater demand for doctors’ services. At present, physicians are reimbursed at roughly 78 percent of costs under Medicare, and just 70 percent under Medicaid, according to Michael Tanner, a Cato Institute senior fellow. As a result, more and more physicians are choosing to opt out of the government programs altogether. Already, as many as a third of doctors will not participate in Medicaid, and 13 percent won’t accept Medicare patients. With cuts in reimbursements on the horizon with Obamacare, “retirement in Florida may begin to look like a very good option” for many older doctors, observes Tanner, whose article appeared in the New York Post. “Are they really going to want to stick it out for a few more years if all they have to look forward to is more red tape for less money?” A 2010 poll by IBD/TPP found that 45 percent of physicians would at least consider leaving their practice or taking early retirement as a result of Obamacare. These various factors will combine to produce a shortfall of more than 150,000 doctors over the next 15 years, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. As a start in dealing with the problem, the Obama commission’s recommended cuts in training funds should be set aside, Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of New York-Presbyterian Hospital, writes in the Journal. “Secondly, the cap enacted in 1996 on training new doctors should finally be lifted. These two steps would go a long way to addressing our country’s medical needs.” Tanner concludes, “Promising universal health coverage is easy. But what does universal coverage mean if you can’t actually see a doctor?”

Never Too Soon

May 7, 2011

   Since we have had our first Republican debate for president, I don’t think it is too soon to start looking at the U.S. senatorial race here in Delaware.

   We are still waiting to see who will step forward for the Republicans to take on incumbent  Democrat Sen. Tom Carper.

    But I think that it is important to understand who Tom Carper has been since being in the U.S. Senate.

   Sen. Tom Carper is a partisan politician. Now there is nothing wrong with that if you happen to believe that the Democrats have been right in their policy positions.  Mr. Carper  votes around 93% of the time with the Democrats.

  More telling is the fact that Mr. Carper votes around 97% of the time with Pres. Obama’ position on issues.

  It doesn’t seem as if Mr. Carper is much of a free-thinker. In fact, it seems as if he is a party hack and presidential lackey.

  Again, if you have been satisfied with the direction the nation has been heading  under the control of the Democrats and Pres. Obama, then I guess that Tom Carper is your man. He definitely seems to be Pres. Obama’s man.

  His voting record is clearly tied to the Obama administration, including his  no vote for the repeal of Obama care. Again Mr. Carper’s vote was along party lines and in line with Pres. Obama. While ignoring the will of the people. Polls had shown that nearly 75% of the American people were in favor of repealing Obama care.

  As we move closer to the election of 2012 I am sure we will be seeing more about the voting habits of Mr. Carper.

The Things The White House Will Release

May 5, 2011

   Though the White house has determined that it would not be the right thing to do, to release the photos of Osama Bin Laden’s dead body. Due to the graphic nature of the photos.

 There are some things that the White House does feel would be the right thing to release.

   It is being reported that information gathered from the raid on the compound shows that Al Qaeda was considering an attack on railways in three major U.S. cities.

  It would seem that we can expect a continuous leak of all the information gathered from the computers in the compound.

  Mind you the story is not being put out as a warning to the cities, or the citizens. It is being reported in a manner that makes it seem as if the administration is bragging. One might say showing off.

   Might it not be a good idea to examine all the information before releasing any part of it. In case you come across something that any release might jeopardize the ability to roll it up on actual plots and terrorist.

 This seems like the White House again rushing to put out information for political gain.

Praise For President Obama ?

May 4, 2011

  Okay, there has been quite a bit of discussion of whether Pres. Obama deserves praise for making the decision to go after and killing OBL.  Of course anyone with any intellectual honesty has to give credit also to former Pres. Bush. This was an ongoing operation. To locate and capture or kill OBL. Of course don’t expect much intellectual honesty from the liberals, since that is as rare as hen’s teeth.

   I have personally stated that, yes he deserves credit for giving the green light. Let us not forget that Democrat President Bill Clinton passed on a number of chances to take out OBL. Thanks for 9/11 Pres. Clinton.

  So I definitely feel that Pres. Obama made the right choice. Only he knows why he made the choice he did.

  Many on the left are using the phrase that, “Obama killed Bin Laden”. Well factually that is incorrect. An unidentified Navy SEAL killed Bin Laden.

  Also many on the left who are frightened by Pres. Obama’s failing approval numbers, have come out following this event, with statements such as, ” this make 2012 a lock for the President”. I wouldn’t get all excited just yet my liberal looney friends.

  While the President may receive a small bump from this, I don’t see how it can in any way last until the election of 2012. Though we have to admit it seems as if the President is attempting to string this out for as long as possible. It would seem that he is milking the release of the photo for all that it’s worth. Maybe he and his liberal buddies could get a bus and go on the ” I killed Bin Laden tour”.

  So Pres. Obama was in office when OBL was actually killed. Great! Thank you Mr. President.

  But whatcha goin to do about the economy? How about the unemployment problem? Maybe you could sell copies of the kill photo, and reduce the debt and deficit issue. Now that OBL is dead, does this mean that Obama care isn’t unconstitutional anymore? And that it won’t ruin the best healthcare system in the world. Will killing OBL lower the price of gasoline by a single penny? Will it bring down the cost of food?  No, of course not.

  So does Pres. Obama deserve credit and praise for giving the green light to some very brave men to take out the most evil person on the face of the planet. Sure he does.

  But he also deserves the blame for stalling the economy. For deepening the recession. For raising the unemployment numbers. For weakening the dollar. For robbing the free market of any confidence, to the point that no one will invest.

  So I will go as far as saying, thank you Mr. President, for allowing our brave men to do that which they were trained to do. For being in office when it happened. But it is time to stop basking in the after glow, and to get back to solving America’s problems. It is time that you and your liberal party realize that your policies are destroying the nation. It is time that you realize that you are finished as a political leader. It is time for you to start writing you memoirs. Because the American people have caught on to the fact that you are nothing but the empty suit that we on the right knew you were back in 2008.

  Oh you may get a small bump in your ratings for a day or two. But it won’t last past the next time people fill their gas tanks, or grocery shop. It won’t last until 2012 for sure. Then you will be outed, and we can turn this nation back towards the free market, capitalist nation that it was intended to be upon its founding.

No Subsidies !!

April 30, 2011

  As gasoline prices continue to rise, Pres. Obama has come out against the high profits of the oil industry.

   Well no one can say that Pres. Obama is original. Every time the price of gasoline goes up, the left starts screaming about profits.  Of course the liberals always seem to forget that those profits are taxed. Those taxes are a huge source of revenue for the nation. So why are the liberals always out to cut the profits of the oil industry?

  Well because the oil industry is evil of course. I mean just look at how little they have done for the nation over the years. It’s not like they employ large numbers of people. It’s  not like the nation is dependent on the product that the oil industry provides. It’s not like millions of dollars in 401K’s are invested in the oil industry to provide for the retirement of people across the nation.

  It isn’t the profits that are the problem. The problem is the over regulation and restrictive nature of our government when it comes to the oil industry. Instead of encouraging the industry to expand and find new domestic sources of oil. Our current administration is intent on restricting and actually retarding the expansion of domestic oil drilling.

  Now some will say that even if the regulations were removed that the oil industry would not expand in order to keep prices high. I find that hard to believe. I feel that if the market was freer, that there would be more competition. More competition means lower prices.

  Now, currently Pres. Obama is proposing to remove tax credits and subsidies from the oil industry. One has to believe that this will only lead to higher gas prices. I am not sure how the President is tying the two things together. I’m not sure how you make the argument that removing the subsidies and tax credits will lower prices. One has to know that the companies will just pass the difference on to the consumer. 

  The only way that you can take away the tax credits and subsidies, and not have the prices go through the roof, is price caps. May God help us if that happens.

  Look, I am all in favor of removing all subsidies. But not just from the oil industry. I want to remove all subsidies from all of the green industries also. If we take the credits from the oil industry, only to turn around and give them to the green industry, we have done nothing to reduce the deficit, and nothing to reduce the cost of gas. 

  Let’s face it, the President doesn’t really expect to remove the tax credits or subsidies from the oil industry. He is in full campaign mode and is playing to his leftist greeny base.

   So once again, what do we get from this president ?  Absolutely nothing. At a time when we need real ideas on how to create more domestic supply. All we get is attacks on one of the oldest and most profitable industries in the nation. And why? Political maneuvering and pandering to his fringe base.

  That is not leadership.

Extra ! Extra!

April 27, 2011

   President Obama has finally released the long form birth certificate. The White House has announced the release just minutes ago.

  Will this now pout to rest the whole question about his place of birth.

 We have to at least give credit to Donald Trump for forcing this issues.

  This will also give the birthers another conspiracy issue. They will now be questioning whether the certificate is real. Wait and see.
