About Fast and Furious: “I heard on the news about this
story…Fast and Furious.”
About Air Force One doing an un announced flyover DC: “It
was something (Uh) we found out about (Uh) along with all of you…”
About the IRS targeting conservatives: “I first learned
about it from the same news reports that I think most people (Uh) learned about
this. I-I (Uh) think it was on Friday.”
About the Justice Department confiscating two months of
phone records from AP reporters: (Jay Carney) “We don’t have any independent
knowledge of that. He found out about the news reports (Uh) yesterday on the
About the VA appointment foul-ups: “…from the news…”
About the State Department manipulating Benghazi talking
points: “…from the news.”
At a Democrat fundraiser Mr.
Obama told the group that he doesn't watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting
about, usually I know.”
The fellow conducting this conference was my Youth Choir pianist when I was Minister of Music at Plantation Baptist Church in Plantation, Florida. His name is Joe Martin, and he was a teenager when he was my pianist. He was highly skilled and was featured in various orchestras.
Joe is so much fun to watch! I love his enthusiasm and communication skills. He writes floods of music. The ad is for one of his new releases.
The administration of the leader of the free world, the
Commander in Chief, the most intelligent person to have ever held that office,
the supreme orator just can’t get his act together.
Did you hear about the failure of the rollout of the
ObamaCare web site? Did you hear about the loss of Emails by the IRS? Did you
hear about government computers being hacked by foreign interests? Did you hear
about the government using its computers to spy on Americans? Did you hear about the VA having hidden tens
of thousands of appointments, depriving veterans of their right to adequate
healthcare (ironic in the age of ObamaCare, don’t you think?)?
Well, that’s just not enough to declare him incompetent, is
it? If there was maybe one more item to add to the list, he might be teetering
on the brink of incompetence, right?
Now we learn that after spending $300 million on a brand new
computer system to handle Social Security disability claims, they can’t get it
to work and have no time line for when it might be workable!
“In the meantime,
people filing for disability claims face long delays at nearly every step of
the process — delays that were supposed to be reduced by the new processing
system.” It turns out that this massive technology had no coordinator in
charge, no one responsible for completing the project.
Acting Commissioner, Carolyn Colvin, facing confirmation by the Senate after
being nominated by Obama for a six year term, cannot explain what is happening
with the system’s completion. Her appointed assistant, Terrie Gruber, cannot
explain what is happening with the system’s completion.
troubled computer project is known as the Disability Case Processing System, or
DCPS. It was supposed to replace 54 separate, antiquated computer systems used
by state Social Security offices to process disability claims. As envisioned,
workers across the country would be able to use the system to process claims
and track them as benefits are awarded or denied and claims are appealed.
as of April, the system couldn't even process all new claims, let alone
accurately track them as they wound their way through the Disability Case
Processing System (DCPS) system. Of course, just a few more millions of dollars
will help Lockheed Martin, the prime contractor, will enable them to fix the
know what? I don’t think we can wait for more things to go wrong before we
proclaim President BO (the amateur president) to be an incompetent
Administrator in Chief.
think he justifies every day my decision to call him an amateur president.
Pro-Russian rebels, probably directly responsible for the
shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight 17, murdering 298 people, have now
driven United Nations investigators out of the region shooting at them as they
left. Translation: The United Nations is powerless to do anything significant,
even such an important task as to investigate the taking down of a civilian
But have no fear! President BO (the amateur president) is
here! Remember, there were Americans in that plane. They might not have been as
important as the ambassadors in Benghazi, but they were Americans. So this
involves us, the U.S. Therefore, PBO (tap)’s firm response has been issued. He
“…as I’ve said throughout this crisis…to President Putin as
well as publically (what the heck does that mean: publically?), my preference
continues to be finding a diplomatic resolution within Ukraine. (What? A
diplomatic solution to the shooting down of a civilian airliner? Hasn’t the
deed already been done? What solution? He’s going to bring the dead bodies back
to life? Because that’s the only thing that could be considered a solution.) I
believe that can still happen. That is my preference today and will continue to
be my preference.
“…if Russia continues to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty, and
to back these separatists, and these separatists become more and more dangerous
(What? More dangerous than shoot down a civilian airliner?) and now are risks,
not simply to the people inside of Ukraine, but the broader international
community (Is not the shooting down of a civilian airliner ALREADY beyond the “risk”?)
then Russia will only further isolate itself from the international community
(something that I’m sure makes them tremble in their boots) and the costs for
Russia’s behavior will only continue to increase.” (Ooh! I’ll bet that put fear
in Putin’s gizzard!)
This pathetic excuse for a man, this cowardly, lily-livered,
yellow-bellied, sap sucking amateur Spokesperson in Chief for America will take
the same stand in this situation that he took in Libya, in Egypt and in other
Islamic nations. Red lines and all, we know how that turned out.
So now he takes a kneel before President Putin, now
considered the most powerful man on earth. That will turn Putin into a bowl of Jell-O,
Wake up Americans! Wake up to PBO (tap)’s ineffectiveness on
the world stage! Wake up to the man who wants to “fundamentally change” America
by bringing her down! Wake up to this namby-pamby pot of international Pablum. Get
this guy and those of his ilk out of D.C.!
I was born in Miami, Florida, the son of an Air Force officer, traveled the world, was saved at age 17, and have served the Lord since. That's me on the left and my lovely wife, Bonnie...the pretty one...on the right.

FOUR PRINCIPLES THAT DEFINE TRUE CONSERVATISM:
1. Respect for The Constitution
2. Respect for Life
3. The Smallest Possible Government
4. Individual Responsibility
This blog is about my philosophy of government, which is a very conservative philosophy.
You are not required to agree with me (although you would be better off if you did).
I am biased toward conservatism, and make no apologies for that.
Freedom means not being controlled by the government, that being the very reason we declared our independence from Great Britain.
Government's job is not to provide things for people, but to provide the opportunity for people to persue the things they want via the vehicles of freedom and responsibility.
