“The greatest danger to liberty today comes from the men who are most needed and most powerful in modern government, namely, the efficient expert administrators exclusively concerned with what they regard as the public good.” – Economist Friedrich August von Hayek (1899-1992)
Greetings once again from the West Texas Home For Jingoistic Xenophobic Homophobic Islamaphobic Right Wing Racial Profiling Extremists Anonymous. I suppose we better get a support group since all of the above names are what the Liberals/Progressives/Democrats/Socialists call us.
According to the world’s most articulate and intelligent human and his band of incompetent, lying followers, things just could not be better here on the home front. Other than our country being more racially and economic level divided to augment the absolute political ignorance of many Americans, I suppose one could stretch the truth and agree that things here are just as they should be.
And to tell you the truth, I would be in a complete state of shock if things were not just as they are, taking into consideration the incompetence and complete lack of honesty of the ENTIRE Obama Administration.
They have been telling us that our Southern Border is more secure than at any other time in the past. They have been telling us that the Affordable Health Care Act (ObamaCare) has worked even better than originally planned. They have told us that the so called “Middle Class” has increased. They have blamed every single negative economic problem on…. you guessed it….. George Bush.
They have released Muslim Terrorists from the facility at Guantanamo and told us that by sending them to Yemen, they would cease to be a problem to our country and all the while Yemen is a nest of Islamic Terrorists who have planned and carried out acts of terrorism throughout the globe.
They have emasculated our Military to the point of ineffectiveness.
They have created a whole segment of our American society who are stupid enough to still believe race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Eric Holder.
Then, last evening in his State of the Union Address, Barack Obama kept trying to tell us that our economy and jobs were at an all time high. One little item seems to have escaped his keen observation, however. And that would be the fact that under his inept administration, our National Debt is now over EIGHTEEN TRILLION, $18,000,000,000,000.00, DOLLARS.
Also in listening to the lies spouted off by the world’s most articulate and intelligent human, I seemed to have thought back and remembered much of his speech was a bunch of recycled crap… for those of you who voted for Nancy Pelosi and reside in the People’s Republic of San Francisco that means that he repeated damn near everything he spoke about. Basically, what I got out of his speech was that he was going to raise taxes AND VETO any legislation of which he did not approve especially any legislation that would chip away at his signature Executive Orders.
AH, but we were treated to a woman, who was obviously a plant, seated next to Michelle, who had allegedly written Obama praising his policies for she and her family being able to own a home and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Of course, they neglected to inform us that this woman is a former worker for the Democrat Party and according to one report I heard had done this kind of thing in the past.
THE TRUTH MEANS NOTHING TO THESE PEOPLE!
At this point in the Obama regime, what has he or any of his followers done which would entice ANY OF US to believe ANY STATISTICAL INFORMATION regarding our economy or jobs or anything else, for that matter.
If you think that the Domestic Policies of this band of thieves is a mess, just take a look at the Obama Foreign Policies…. or rather a lack of same.
They have not only refused to address some really major problems with our State Department, but have lied and taken part in cover ups at a record pace. They have still not come up with a believable excuse for the MURDER of our Ambassador and American Security personnel in Benghazi. I know this is a couple of years old but the American people still have not been told the truth regarding these MUSLIM TERRORIST ATTACKS.
Then just within the past two weeks when MUSLIM TERRORISTS murdered the cartoonists of the French magazine along with some other innocent people at a local grocery store, the Obama Administration has still refused to place the blame where it belongs. Then Obama did not send a high ranking member of his Administration to the Solidarity Demonstration in Paris. NO, after the fact he sends Secretary of State, John Kerry over to hug the French President and what makes the United States look even weaker and less in touch, Kerry carries with him, singer James Taylor. Then to top it off, James Taylor sings the song “You’ve Got A Friend”, to top off this “Hug Fest”. All in all, our government looked really weak and really stupid. Also, while I think James Taylor has a good voice and plays the guitar really well, this exhibition of foolishness by our government should have been an embarrassment to the Obama Administration.
Had our idiot President asked me to go over with a singer to placate the French President, I would have had to substitute another performer for James Taylor. I would have chosen Jerry Jeff Walker, accompanied by Gary P. Nunn and the Lost Gonzo Band and would have had them perform the old Ray Wiley Hubbard classic: “UP AGAINST THE WALL REDNECK MOTHER”. But I guess that might be a good reason that I was not chosen ahead of John Kerry…… well that and the fact that I might not have been able to resist the temptation to tell the world’s most articulate and intelligent human to STICK IT WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE.
While we are on the subject of the Obama Foreign Policy, we have been told that Yemen is our staunch ally in the Middle East and that is one reason why damn near every single prisoner released by Obama from Guantanamo has been released to Yemen. Then just within the past 24 hours we learn that there is a rebellion in Yemen conducted by the Shiite Muslims. And it is also of interest that the Muslim Country with the largest population of Shiites is…. you guessed it …. IRAN. And of course the world’s most articulate and intelligent human is working on some type of nuclear agreement with Iran and I doubt seriously if we will come out well in that exchange. AND of course Obama has threatened to VETO any legislation which would impose sanctions on Iran as well as any legislation which would go against his Amnesty edict.
SO, I am predicting that we will not see any changes in our stature in the world for the next two years. Russia will continue to spit in our face; The Muslim Terrorists will continue to do as they damn well please; ISIS will continue to gain ground in Syria and Iraq if we continue our present weak responses.
OUR foreign policy is either exceptionally weak or non-existent and I strongly imagine a touch of both.

“Europe is currently in the process of paying the rice for years of importing millions of people from a culture hostile to the fundamental values of Western culture. And this is by no means the last of the installments of that price, to be paid in blood and lives, for smug elites’ Utopian self-indulgences in moral preening and gushing wit the magic word DIVERSITY.”… THOMAS SOWELL
“Meanwhile, in the United States, no one seems to be drawing any lessons about the dangers of importing millions of people from fundamentally different cultures across our open border. In America, DIVERSITY has still not yet lost its magical ability to stop thought in its tracks and banish facts into the outer darkness.”… THOMAS SOWELL
“Many fine people have come here from Mexico. But, as with any other group, some are just the opposite. With open borders, however, we don’t even know how many people who cross that border are Mexican, much less anything more relevant, like their education, diseases, criminal records or terrorist ties.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!…. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power…. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us…. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”… PATRICK HENRY

OK. Several years ago I wrote a disclaimer that said that I WAS NOT THE FATHER OF ANNA NICHOLE SMITH’S BABY.
Then later I wrote a disclaimer that I DID NOT WATCH THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS.
Then I had to assure everyone that I DID NOT WATCH THE ACADEMY AWARDS.
Still later on I had to disavow any RECOGNITION OF THE PHONY AFRICAN HOLIDAY, KWANZAA.
Now I feel as if I must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that I DID NOT FLY TO FOXBORO, MASSACHUSETTS THIS PAST WEEK END AND LET THE AIR OUT OF THE FOOTBALLS USED BY THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS.
Here is what I did observe about the game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts:
New England was way more prepared for this AFC Championship than was Indianapolis.
Tom Brady was way more experienced in Championship Play than was Andrew Luck.
I don’t believe that the football, deflated or not, had any bearing on the rushing attack of the New England Patriots
I don’t believe that the football, deflated or not, had any bearing on the inability of the Colts to mount any type of offensive attack.
I know that the media doesn’t like Bill Belichick which is one of the main reasons that I DO LIKE HIM. He is not the all time winningest coach in post season play, eclipsing Dallas Cowboy Coach Tom Landry because of his likeability, but rather for being prepared and preparing his team for big games.
NOW, since I disavow any knowledge of the much ado about nothing deflated ball story, I feel like I must also tell the world that I had nothing to do with the complete meltdown of the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. The Packers had that baby won and did some really stupid stuff which allowed the Seattle Seahawks to come from behind and win the NFC Championship.
I am looking forward to the Super Bowl and I believe that the two best teams are in it.
Do y’all remember back in the 1970’s when the HIPPIES were running wild in America? Remember when all of the great unwashed generation ALL claimed to be NON-CONFORMIST? Yet when you really observed them closely you realized that all of the girls looked and dressed and talked with amazing similarity? Then you looked at the male of the species and found that they dressed, spoke, and looked even more similar? SO, tell me, what was so damned NON-CONFORMIST about those bozos?
NOW, we have the Americans and Europeans who are going to the Middle East and growing a beard and letting their hair grow long and attempting to act exactly like their Middle Eastern Muslim compadres. Seems like a giant step backward. Where are those 1970’s Hippies now, you ask? Most of them are in Washington, D.C.
God help us all if we sit back and let Karl Rove and the Beltway Republican Establishment choose our next presidential candidate.
Also, while I think John Boehner is a varmint, inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before a Joint Session of Congress makes me appreciate him a bit more.

SEE Y’ALL NEXT WEEK
Obama’s State of the Union addresses remind me of nothing so much as the Orwellian speeches of brazen tyrants disjoined from reality and (unlike Obama) untethered from the corrective reporting of a free press. And this one was no different: Our economy is booming, our country is at peace, our enemies are disarmed, our union is strong. For icing on this fruitcake there are particular gems like this: “Since I’ve been President, we’ve worked responsibly to cut the population of Gitmo in half.” Which is why one out of every three Gitmo releases results in the return of a terrorist to the battlefield to kill more Americans. Which is why – for my health of mind – I stopped watching Obama’s speeches live many years ago and now just read them afterwards. This year while the great fabricator was testing the nation’s credulity, I watched a terrific hockey game in which the hits were real and I could relax while I believed my lying eyes.
His smugness also treated his audience to wretched admonitions to practice a better politics: “A better politics is one where we spend less time drowning in dark money for ads that pull us into the gutter” – like, for example, the campaign ad in which he accused his presidential rival, Mitt Romney, of murdering a cancer patient. What I took away from this speech, like the previous ones I’ve had the pleasure of skipping, is that our president is both a deceitful man and a dangerous one. Not of ordinary dimensions mind you, but of dimensions that should make one fear for our country so long as he is in the White House and so long as Democrats and progressives continue to support him.

America’s national character will have to be changed if progressives are going to implement their agenda. So, changing social norms is the progressive agenda.
To understand how far this has advanced, and how difficult it will be to reverse the inculcation of dependency, consider the data Nicholas Eberstadt deploys in National Affairs quarterly:
America’s welfare state transfers more than 14% of GDP to recipients, with more than a third of Americans taking “need-based” payments. In our wealthy society, the government officially treats an unprecedented portion of the population as “needy.”
Transfers of benefits to individuals through social welfare programs have increased from less than one federal dollar in four (24%) in 1963 to almost three out of five (59%) in 2013.
In that half-century, entitlement payments were, Eberstadt says, America’s “fastest growing source of personal income,” growing twice as fast as all other real per capita personal income. It is likely that this year, a majority of Americans will seek and receive payments.
This is not largely due to Social Security and Medicare transfers to an aging population. Rather, the growth is overwhelmingly in means-tested entitlements. More than twice as many households receive “anti-poverty” benefits than Social Security or Medicare.
Between 1983 and 2012, the population increased by almost 83 million — and people accepting means-tested benefits increased by 67 million. So, for every 100-person increase in the population there was an 80-person increase in the recipients of means-tested payments. Food stamp recipients rose from 19 million to 51 million, more than the combined populations of 24 states.
