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.

Giving Credit Where Debit Is Due

A week after the U.S. Navy Seal Team 6 killed bin Laden it has been nauseating to hear all week from conservative commentators, of all people, that BO made a courageous gutsy political decision to authorize the mission. It was the Members of the Seal Team whose lives were on the line - not BO's. To mention this as an after thought compared to BO's political career shows just what our news cycle & national mindset has come to. If we were all on the same existential team we would not need to know who started the manhunt eight years ago & who authorized the strike on May day.

Now to take any action that BO does out of context of Saul Alinsky's Socialist-Marxist book Rules For Radicals misses what BO is all about - namely completing the socialization of America for starters.

Alinsky makes clear that an organizer must look like he is one of the people he is trying to control - after all who would follow someone who didn't? What better way for BO to look like an American patriot than taking out public enemy #1 - the unsuspecting American public has raised BO's approval ratings in the polls by several points thanks to the work of the Seal Team who BO really hates. With all of the info that came in does any one really think BO had an option to not proceed with the mission against bin Laden?

In response to the point some commentators make that BO took a risk if the mission failed - with gasoline @ $4 per gallon nationwide & unemployment staying high with only a business cycle bounce here & there the bin Laden mission could very easily look like a political gamble, using other people's lives, where it was already figured in that much was going against BO in November 2012 if nothing changed.

Over the past four years I have never presented these type of ideas as a conspiracy theory but rather a presentation of facts. Just look @ BO's overall anti-American record that began with making people dependent on government stimulus & government healthcare programs. BO's administration continues the criminal investigation that could lead to the indictment of CIA interrogation officers whose work revealed the very type of information that led to bin Laden's hideout. In a union payback move the BO controlled NLRB has told Boeing they can't built a $2 billion plant in SC - a right to work state. More subtly BO has instructed, through his Treasury Secretary, the Federal Reserve System to keep interest rates manipulated to artificially low levels thereby crippling many senior citizens who rely on a reasonable CD rate for a portion of their incomes. On the opposite end of the spectrum college graduates can't get jobs because of the rotten economy controlled by BO's policies - the NY Post reports that 85% of new college graduates can't get a job. These college grads make up the new underclass - all per BO's design.

Please keep all of the above in focus when you hear a commentator one night criticize BO's actions & the next night point out how he did something right for America like the bin Laden mission. Click on the following video that will help you understand BO's disconnect with you & our country.

  1. Doug, building on everything you so eloquently detailed, do they (Obama’s Whitehouse) believe we are so naive to think that the Pakistani Government was not complicit. Billions of taxpayers’ dollars went directly to the “hunt for Bin Laden” Pakistan campaign. What did we get for our money? To continue to pay in advance for results leaves little incentive for results.
