0scumbag's Most Dishonest State of the Union Address.

state of delusion speech

friday, february 15th, 2013

simply put: the State of The Union, sucks. There's no other way of saying it. Our once-Proud & Prosperous Constitutional Republic rapidly descending into a morass of debt, massive unemployment, a hugely-increased welfare-dependent society and praise all of the newly-minted "classes of people". It boggles my mind what's already happened, is ongoing, and what will happen over the next 4 years.

he obscene performance began with a celebration of an economic recovery that exists only in Washington, DC, which has grown too damned fat on the money that its corrupt political interests have stolen from the rest of the country, and ended by comparing a woman waiting in line to vote for him with a police officer who risked his life to stop a mad gunman. And in between these two cynical and ugly bookends was a dog's dinner of out of control spending, class warfare and more bad ideas than even Castro could have come up with in seven hours.

Marx Theater in Havana, Obama claimed that spending was under control, the national debt was no longer a problem, the war in Afghanistan had been won, the economic recovery was here, unemployment was fading and Al Qaeda was a shadow of its former self.

Obama's ridiculous 6600-word marathon "speech", is also not a lengthy speech; it is the party's precise Marxist, socialist, communist program.

It reminds me of a liberal-demokkkRAT America bureaucrat visiting a Chi-Commie construction boss, who was employing millions of Chinese to dig out valleys to accommodate future massive "government investment" infrastructure dams. The workers were using hand shovels. The American asked the Chi-Commie why they were using shovels instead of heavy equipment, to which the Chi-Commie replied that it's a jobs project. Then, the American liberal replied that they should all be using spoons; as it then it becomes a real command-and-control project. "Investment" of public time and money in useless, worthless, bullshit jobs. Remember 0scumbag's multi-billion stimulus for "shovel ready jobs" during his distasrous first term? Get ready for far worse.

Anytime a government "invests" in manufacturing, planning, infrastructure, education, business, energy or anything else has been, is now, and always will be a socialist/marxist/communist disaster. 0scumbag is a hypocrite, war criminal assassin of American Citizens without "due process".

The people that 0scumbag promises to help today, will be put out of work by him tomorrow.

There were more calls to fix all those broken bridges, which he had somehow been unable to fix for four years, despite running trillion dollar deficits. And finally a proposal to really help the economy take off by legalizing 11 million illegal aliens and thereby doubling the unemployment rate in a single year. That'll work out real well, won't it?

As out of touch with the rest of the country, as if he were speaking at the Karl Marx Theater in Havana, 0scumbag claimed that "spending was under control", "the national debt was no longer a problem", "the war in Afghanistan had been won", "the economic recovery was here", "unemployment was fading" and "Al Qaeda was a shadow of its former self". 0scumbag is clearly mentally-ill, and should be institutionalized in, and confined to, a prison cell, for the rest of his unnatural and invisible.

"We'll bring down costs by changing the way our government pays for Medicare," 0scumbag said, "because our medical bills shouldn't be based on the number of tests ordered or days spent in the hospital – they should be based on the quality of care that our seniors receive". This is one of those ominous things that sound reassuring if you don't think about them.

If you think healthcare's expensive now, just wait until it's free.

Hospitals charge based on expenses. If a hospital isn't reimbursed for a test, it stops ordering it. If it isn't reimbursed for a day spent in the hospital, it stops admitting Medicare patients. Quality of care is a euphemism for cutting Medicare expenses by forcing hospitals to reduce admissions through fines and denial of reimbursements. That not only cuts Medicare expenses directly, it also cuts them indirectly by killing senior citizens. Death panels; Palin was right.

Hey 0sambo: this isn't about George W. Bush, anymore; IT's NOW ALL ABOUT YOU, YOU LOWLIFE, mUZZIE, SUBHUMAN, RACIST, LYING DIRTBAG MULATTO! Deal with it, boy! IT'S ALL YOURS, ASSHOLE!

A Day In The Life

It was sleeting/drizzling lightly on Friday morning, at 6:30am, with temps already bouncing around from the upper-20s, to mid-30s. I cranked-up the heat, grabbed my über-warm Turkish Bathrobe, had some Texas Red Grapefruit sections, made French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee (from whole, freshly-ground Dunkin' Donuts® beans) with my Chemex® Drip System. I made Ham & Potato Pancakes (Latkes), and a side of Country Sausage. Amusing, while closely scanning the multiple weather sites, were the panicked news sites, with airlines canceling tens-of-thousands of flights, warning people to stay inside for 2+ days, from NYC north to Boston and even north of there. Hey folks; it's called weather! Don't forget to stock-up on bread, milk, eggs and TP. Ha!

The "Blizzard From Hell" missed us by 75-100 miles, from both directions. What a joke: 6,000+ flights canceled, banks and ATMs shut-down, businesses closed

everywhere, grocery stores' shelves emptied, million of tons of salt spread and thousands of pieces of snowplow equipment prepped/used, people panicking and told to stay home; all for not much (here). It's w-e-a-t-h-e-r, people! Get a fricking life. Invest in a shovel. Oooops, I was wrong; we got hit with some of the blizzard's snow (¼") around 4pm, even though it was 37°F. Temps dropped 10°F in 45mins. I listened to the Mark Levin Show from 6-9pm, and jumped on some firearms-related boards to post various things. I watched CBS' "Blue Bloods" Season 3, "Men In Black" until 11pm, re-scanned the weather sites, and called it a day.

Yeah, the "ferocious blizzard results" are in: coulda, woulda, shoulda. Nothing even close to the "28" of The 1993 Blizzard" (3yrs before "John's Journal" officially existed), or the "48" of The 1996 Blizzard", or even the " 36" of The 2003 Blizzard". Yet, the moron-idiot gov-dictator of Mass banned all road travel, with up to 1 year in jail for violators.

My ancient 2006 Nokia 6060 "Clamshell" cellphone, after 7yrs, needs upgrading to a Nokia 6085 unit, both of which I have multiple units left-over from my GC& Business; I don't know. I need to set-up the 6085 and activate it, and see who it compares, and if it's worth it, go to the local AT&T Store, to get it activated and

switched over to my AT&T Account. It's got all the "bells & Whistles", as compared to the 6060 unit. Oh crap, there's no USB cord with either unit – though they both have USB ports – to download the old 6060's Address Book into the newer 6085, and I'm not going to spend weeks manually-copying all that data over. I guess I'll just stay with what I have, dammit.

I was up at 7 on Saturday morning, to 19°F and clear skies, bright sun and a melting ½" snow on my south-facing brick walk and macadam driveway. Heat-up, bathrobe-on, OJ, coffee and Cheddar Cheese Grits, Sunny-Side-Up Eggs & Butter Sauce, for breakfast. I opened the front door, with the full-length tempred glass storm door to allow bright, warm sunshine to stream-in. I checked the weather and news sites for any latest developments; the NE was still getting "sorta/kinda/bitta hammered" and whoooose; it's over. Some amazing 15.3" to 29.1" to 38.5" totals, but still not close to our past Killer Blizzards' totals. I drove over to Dad's to visit and get the 4/26/13 auction contract co-signed, and copies made; then I mailed it. His ComCast Wireless Modem/Router/Net/Email is working just fine; my Cable Modem is giving me pretty spotty email, so I'm resetting and tweaking the multiple email accounts I have. My FTP is also acting-up; somehow they're integrated and I can't quite find the nuance. Next I'll try the LinkSys Router. I left at 11:45 and headed home. After lunch, I watched & recorded the "Bourne Identity" and the "Bourne Ultimatum", until I heard a loud crash at around 4:30. A vehicle hit a neighbor's house, not directly in the condo complex, and started a small kitchen fire with lots of smoke. I ran down to help and soon all people and pets were accounted for. The FD and LEOs arrived within minutes, quickly brought it under control, and I

left. A small crowd had gathered across the street, by then. After giving a statement to the PD, and getting back home, I showered to get the soot off, changed clothes, checked and revised my tomorrow morning's food shopping list, set the Back-Up/Restore schedule, did chores, watched some more CATV movies, and called it day around 9pm. Lots of technical stuff to fiddle-with tomorow. Not my favorite thing to waste time on.

Sunday morning was a frigid 11°F and frost was so heavy that it looked as though it's snowed again. Getting-up at 6:30, having only some coffee, I left at 8am for Weis Market, only got a few things, and was back by 9am. Dad was sleeping-in late, so I didn't stop to visit. I worked on my week's schedule and numerous appointments/errands, uninstalled/reinstalled/configured the Comcast Cisco Linksys DPC3008 DOCSIS v3.0 Cable Modem and the Cisco RVS4000 4-port Gigabit Security Router: VPN, and had email and FTP semi-working again. By 1pm, I'd made a Bacon Cheeseburger w/ Home Fries and Lentil Soup. After a 2hr nap, I did a load of laundry, listened to several

Year of The Snake

missed Chris Plante (WMAL) podcasts, until "Gun Talk Radio" came on, from 8-11pm. Time to call it quits. Busy week ahead.

The heavy rain on the skylights woke me up several times during the night, and I finally got up for the day, at 6am on Monday. After some OJ, French-Roast, Turkish-Grind Coffee (from whole, freshly-ground Dunkin' Donuts® beans) with my Chemex® Drip System and Breakfast, I scanned the weather and news sites. Yikes; the pope is resigning. I'm a "recovering Methodist", but that was a shocker. Heh. From 11°F yesterday to 50°F today, is quite a temp swing. I drove down to the bank, gc&n to do a security check, and will get my waiting Rx on Tuesday. On Friday, I have a 1:30pm Dr's app't in Shrewsbury. After getting back, I had a quick Grilled Cheese, Ham & Tomato Soup for lunch, listened to Rush, the morning's missed Chris Plante Show Podcast, which nicely-segued into the Mark Levin Show from 6-9pm. Looks like old reliable, PhotoBucket is history and burnt toast; everything went dark. I'll find another photo hosting service. 10:30pm; time for sleep.

I made a major mistake in not turning-down the Condo's heat before going upstairs last night, and it was 75°F all-night, which was uncomfortable. I discovered it at 7am when I came downstairs on Tuesday, disarmed the Condo Security System, had OJ, made coffee and made Scrambled Eggs & Sausage, for breakfast. I needed to get on the road for a meeting with my realtor, auctioneer, p/u a Rx at Rite Aid in Stewartstown, drop-off 2012 Income Tax paperwork at my CPA's offices, make a few other errand stops, and

get back by 1pm. The weather forecast pointed to snow on Wednesday afternoon/evening, and even more snow/ice over the weekend. Crap. I've also bee doing patching/painting repairs on the Condo's walls, doorframe etc, to get it ready for a total repainting, kitchen and 2 bathroom floor replacements, carpet replacement, appliance replacement and window treatment replacement. That whole project will take 1-2yrs; it's not going to be done in a few weeks.

On the morning's trip, I again noticed that gas prices at-the-pump had basically stayed the same, since Friday (2/15): Unleaded Regular (87 oct) is still $3.55/gal, Unleaded Premium (89oct) is at $3.65/gal, Premium (93 oct) is still $3.85/gal, with Diesel Fuel/Kerosene staying at $4.16/gal, at most stations, in the York (PA) area.

I had a small lunch of Green Seedless Grapes, and juice, worked on saddle-soaping all of my handguns' leather Galco Paddle holsters, and buffing them out to a lustrous finish. I listened to Talk Radio in the background, got some my medical record file ready for my Friday 1pm app't, with Dr Todd, until the TRN's "Mark Levin Show" came on, from 6-9pm, and WTC's "Reef Rangler" (so-so). No, I didn't watch or listen to the POTUS' Lie-Of-The Union Speech; it was total bullshit! I loathe, despise and hate that muslim, marxist, racist, mulatto creature. I worked on my 4-course dinner menu and ingredients, for my good friends, Sherry & her Son, Corey, for tomorrow evening, and called it a day around 10pm.

Wow, did I ever wake-up "sick as a dog", at both 4am and 5am, on Wednesday. All the symptoms of flu, were there, again. 100.8°F fever, couldn't keep any food down, etc etc etc. (not going into "details".) Just frigging awful. I went back to sleep until 10:30, and kept wrapped in my warm, Turkish Bathrobe, heat turned-up to

Happy Valentine's Day!

77°F, on a 23°F day. I'm saying inside and getting some fluids, aspirin and rest. Everything else can wait; passing this nastiness off to anyone else would not be a good idea. I'd set-up the Kitchen, the adjacent staging area, the prep and cooking area, and two shots of the dining room here, and here, last evening, but after sleeping on the LR couch for 3-4 hours, I put all the settings, cookware etc away, for the time being. I emailed S&C, and they graciously understood my plight. I put on some WITF Streaming Classical Music, lit the fire, and just slept for the rest of the day, and will try to catch-up on any missed/scheduled meetings/app'ts/errands, if I'm feeling any better tomorrow. I slept until 5pm, called to talk to Dad, had some OJ and aspirin, watched the snow fall, and went to bed around 7pm. Yuk.

Feeling a little better – a relative term since yesterday's "misery" – but still with fever, I slept-in until 8:30am on Thursday. After some OJ and coffee, I kept the heat at 77°F,

skipped breakfast and scanned the new and weather sites, called Dad and decided to take a short walk around the block to get some fresh air. 29°F and 1-1½" of overnight snow were already melting rapidly. Shivering badly with a climbing 100+°F fever, I hurried back inside the warm Condo and stayed for the day. I'm going to run out later to Rite Aid, and get the TamiFlu Rx filled. This is awful to go thru at 63. While closing down the Jeep and garage, I jammed my right hand's thumb and had to "pop-it-out and back-in". That smarts. I haven't had any kind of flu in 12-15yrs, and now to have had 2 instances within 4mos, truly sucks. I climbed back into my Turkish Bathrobe, cranked-up the heat, listened to the Mark Levin Show from 6-9pm, while laying on the LR Couch.

Tomorrow starts another new week here in the "Journal"; my plumber comes Tuesday as do my cleaning ladies, and with this gimped-out right hand, it'll be a crappy few days unless it heals quickly. Just damn.

You Own It, demokkkRATs!

ongratulations to the asswipe demokkkRATs, irrelevant "Free Shit!" minorities and stupid young people on the Truly-Shitty Economy you've created and inherited.

In a way, I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it becomes impossible to clean-up this mess that YOU voted for. Yes, moronic ∅bummer-asshole idiots: YOU!

Your TSHTF Survival

Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in late-2012 or in early-2013. Don't ask why; I just do.

First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,

Europe is on the verge of insolvency and collapse, no thanks in great part to Germany, teetering-and-tottering Asia and South America will quickly-follow, then comes the downfall of Canada, and The USA won't be far behind, in late 2012 and into 2013. Watch this video; be sure you're sitting-down, and don't have any food or liquid in your mouth upon which to choke.

Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.

I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?

Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of November 23rd, 1963 – youngest ever Eagle Scout in American History, at 12 years old – Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?

Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.

BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,

dangerous and short-lived CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs). Better stock-up NOW on 60w, 75w and 100w incandescents, where and when you can find them, before they become unavailable and illegal!

This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!

Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!

TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. coming "Race War" plan.

We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.

I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?

Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!

Here's a very useful List of Barter Items, for when TSHTF. Get and stockpile those and more, if you know what's good for you and your family! Think I'm kidding? Better read this and think VERY carefully about it.

With the FBI already considering many US Citizens as "sovereign citizen extremists", are you ready for "Rex 84" & The FEMA Camps? A new bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives called the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645. This bill if passed into law will direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish

national emergency centers otherwise known as FEMA Camp Facilities on military installations. Some more detail on "Rex 84", right here, written by, very disappointingly, USMC Lt Col Oliver North.

"Economic chaos" ahead? You betcha. Are you and your family ready for it? It IS coming, at out current rate of out-of-control government spending.

Don't let the possibility of DHS watching your every move deter you in preparing for TSHTF; do it regardless. Your and your Family's safety & survival always comes first. Beware of what your neighbors will do if you're prepared and they're not.

State and local resistance to the detention provisions contained in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues to grow, rapidly-emerging as a nationwide movement against the illegal and unconstitutional Federal Jack-Booted-Thugs' powers.

America is already being turned into a giant prison camp, and 90% of Americans either go along with it or don't see it happening. I do.

When prepping, always plan your survival purchases first on paper; buy them afterward.

Here's another good preparedness/precious metals website, 321 Gold. No, I don't believe in gold & silver, for what's coming. I believe in *lead & brass*/*food & water* for that situation; the other stuff comes much, much later.

Obama: "Entrepreneurs Don't Build Businesses"

"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virgina. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:

     "If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.

It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.

(Here's the video of that loony remark.)

However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.

Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.

But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.

As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.

Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.

In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.

When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs. Yesterday, we learned that President Obama believes that entrepreneurs don't build businesses. Ultimately, they're irrelevant. Take that for what you will." ©Principles and Policy, July 14, 2012
