About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

With All Of Your Might

Many of you are probably like me in that you received several messages over the past few days telling you in advance what purportedly would be in BO's State of the Union speech last night. We had a good idea about the State of the Union speech from BO's visit last Friday to the Cleveland blue collar manufacturing suburb of Elyria that was billed as a trip about jobs & the economy - in Elyria BO repeatedly went off this jobs & economy script to return to his first priority of enacting Universal Healthcare & he continued it last night in the State of the Union speech saying he would fight for it "so long as I have breath in me."

AFP analyzed the Elyria speech & found that BO actually said the word "taxpayers" two times & the words "small business" 8 times. Please watch this video to see how many times BO referred to himself with "I" or "me".

Conspicuous by their absence in the State of the Union speech was any mention of closing the Guantanamo prison, reversing his (not Holder's) decision to try admitted terrorist KSM in NYC, or his latest passed deadline of December 31 for Iran to take up his invitation to negotiate regarding the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.

The new leaf BO was supposed to turn over regarding budgetary discipline & the freezing of the discretionary portion of the federal budget turns out to be just another gimmick that insults our intelligence.

AFP reports that "the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office just released its projections for the coming year and they found something interesting. Without Obama's "freeze," discretionary spending would actually decrease over the next four years. So by freezing spending at today's higher level, it would mean spending more!

One more thing about the "freeze" - it freezes in place all of the huge spending increases from Obama's first year in office. When the stimulus was passed, we were told it would be temporary; Obama's freeze would extend that spending for three more years. Don't be fooled."

A caller to Neal Boortz's radio program today said that BO's freeze is like someone who just bought a $5 million house he can't afford saying that he is going to rein in his profligate spending by not buying any new doorknobs for the house for the next three years.

Although BO discussed many things in his 70 minute State of the Union speech you could easily read between the lines to see that his top priorities remain the same:

1. Universal Healthcare

2. Cap & Trade

3. Comprehensive Immigration Reform

The first two respectively will put government in control of your body & your money & the third will ensure the election of statists like BO by empowering through the ballot box the poorest, lowest skilled, most uneducated people in the world @ your expense.

BO said he will fight "so long as he has breath in him" - & I believe that he will with my whole heart & soul. If America as we know her, our Founders, your way of life, & the life of our Posterity are important to you, you should fight against BO's programs as hard as you can every chance that you get - with all of your might


  1. Video with the "I's" was something....yes we need to FIGHT....BO's program....we are trying to take ACTION in whatever ways we can.

  2. an observation - that BO is intent on separating himself from all those politicians, he is the good guy fighting against all odds. Again the reference to lobbyists - so why did he appoint them? And Washington wants us to believe this and that, but it is his Washington. Of course, the Senate pushed through the additional stimulus bill the next morning to present to Congress before Brown is sworn in. Nothing has changed!
