Byron York’s article in the Washington Examiner is great! He listened to an Obama speech and typed it up so I don’t have to.
Like most of America, I’m getting pretty sick and damn tired of hearing Obama speak.
In “Entering stretch, Obama campaign running on empty,” York includes Obama’s five-point plan for his second four years.
I wouldn’t say it’s a lot like the first four years, I’d say it’s an application of theory that they tried to implement but were rejected by nature or the common sense of the American people.
“I will not be satisfied until everybody who wants to work hard can find a job,” the president told the crowd. To make that happen, he promised to do five things.
Headline: President unsatisfied with first term, wants a mulligan.
First, he would “send fewer jobs overseas [and] sell more products overseas.” He proposed to “reward companies that are investing right here” in order to “create good jobs and provide security for the middle class.”
How many fewer? Five? Ten? 165? How many more? 35? 115? I can hear the manufacturers in their shops now, “hey, if we make products and sell them overseas, Mr. Obama promises to reward us, Oh, Happy Day!” How does a President do any of this? He doesn’t, he hasn’t, he can’t.
Second, he would “control more of our own energy and how we use energy” by “investing in the energy sources of tomorrow.” This will not only make America more energy-independent, Obama said, but will also help stop global warming, which leads to “droughts and floods and fires.”
He didn’t say produce more energy, he said control it. That means, “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”
Has the American resistance to cap and trade legislation and anger toward the EPA for implementing it without congressional oversight gone away? No. Have children warmly embraced the First Lady’s attempt to make them thinner by restricting their food intake at schools? No. How’s that Chevy Volt workin’ for ya?
Third, the president would create “the best education system in the world right here in the United States.” He proposed to hire new math and science teachers and provide job training in community colleges. He also said he’ll “work with colleges and universities to keep tuition low.”
I’ve heard this before, almost verbatim from four years ago. You should click that link, because just reviewing it now, I had forgotten how Obama had pushed so hard the ‘march as one’ social and economic justice, community commune crap. And here we are, still deficient on math and science teachers. By the way, four years ago, Mr. Obama wasn’t “working with colleges to keep tuition low,” he was promising free college. oops.
Fourth, Obama would “cut the deficit by $4 trillion over the next 10 years.” He has already “cut spending that we didn’t need,” he said, and will do more in the future, but vowed not to cut any funds in areas like education and research.
Oh, please. This isn’t funny.
Fifth, Obama would raise taxes on higher-income Americans. “We can’t get this done unless we also ask the wealthiest households to pay higher taxes on their incomes above $250,000,” Obama said. “That’s how you do it.”
The whole Obama agenda for the next four years hinges on raising taxes.
And that’s it. “That’s my agenda for change,” Obama told the crowd. “That’s what we need to do. … That’s why I’m running for a second term.” The president offered no specifics on how he would accomplish any of it.
Because it’s all leftist theory on how to control the public.
It’s awful depressing to realize that if he gets a second term, high energy prices, low enthusiasm for America and repression is the new normal.
Obama never talks about the goodness of the individual, or the freedom to follow your own dreams and your own passion. He doesn’t say these things because he doesn’t believe in the individual American citizen. He wants to put us into groups, divided by class, color, sex, it’s very discriminatory. What we need is a color-blind president, someone who does not see my outward appearance and think that I think a certain way.
We need a president who believes in our ability as Americans to overcome hardship, not one who promises more of the hardship we are enduring.
Obama’s five-point plan is a promise of misery, control, and more division.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion.

I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
