The Biggest Cliff of All
Wall Street Journal, by Daniel Henninger

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/26/2012 7:26:44 PM

If you´re looking for optimism as the world turns toward 2013, stay up late watching paid-for television explaining how to turn wrinkles into miracles. Past that, my own reservoir of uplift is a bit dry this year. A famous and successful American optimist, Ronald Reagan, put his finger closer to the problem when he suggested there was little limit to what people could accomplish if government would get out of the way. As Barack Obama flies from Hawaii´s beaches to Washington´s cliff, there may be four or five liberals who´ve come to agree with the Gipper.

First the TEA Party got blamed for everything that goes wrong. We´re still there (ask the Speaker)

Now, millions of John Galts will start dealing with the looters running our government.


Maybe Reid and BO can force through a massive bill called Obamabuy. Everyone will have to buy approved things from approved providers and those that can´t afford to buy will be given subsidies run by an impartial and honest government exchange. Those who can afford to buy but refuse will be taxed/fined until we reach 1% unemployment and 10% GDP growth. The Bernanke will create a negative interest rate forever so borrrowing will actually create income for the government and the deficit will disappear.

Another Reagan quote comes to mind quite frequently these days: "There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don´t care who gets the credit" or something along those lines.

My how far we´ve fallen. The Obama attitude is "there´s no limit to how much destruction you can cause if you can figure out who to pin the blame on".

I see that word in headlines every day. Blame.

Obama War Room: Nowhere Man

OBAMA: [on the beach, yelling] C’mon, Michelle. Get your butt back on that board, paddle out, and try again. I’m countin’ on you, girl.
VALERIE JARRETT: Excuse me, sir. Air Force One arrives at Dulles around noon. Your double will be whisked to the White House, incognito. He’ll hole up in the subbasement until you sneak home next week.
OBAMA: A shame we gotta play these games just so I can kick back a few more days. Hey Axe, nobody’s gonna know?
AXELROD: Reporters went back with your other self, sir. And the Service has created a 25 square mile exclusion zone around the compound. All locals have been temporarily relocated. We’re calling it a precautionary measure.
OBAMA: Washington?
DAVID PLOUFFE: We’ll pass out still photos of you pacing the floor in the Oval Office, phone in hand. At his press briefings, Carney will say you’ve been reaching out to the principals in an effort to keep fiscal disaster at bay.
OBAMA: I have?
AXELROD: Yes, sir. Your voice impersonator has placed dozens of calls to Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, Reid, Hoyer and others to urge them on. The connection is broken before any discussion ensues.
OBAMA: Does Reid know I´m not coming back?
PLOUFFE: Yes, sir. He says you might as well be on the moon for all he cares.
AXELROD: We’ve built a mock-up of the Oval Office at the Compound, sir. Later on, you should deliver that three minute statement I prepared about the need for everybody to get serious as doom approaches.
OBAMA: Awright. Hey, one more Blue Hawaii, easy on the vodka, before I head out for another run. Forget the little umbrella.

Assuming that it is even possble to pick up the pieces in 2016 and salvage what is left of the America we once knew, all I can say is we had better start banding together now like we have done since Obie got in. For the sake of our children and grandchildren.

Maybe the government should tax everyone at 100%, then send out ´tax refund´ checks to everyone and sign us all up for food stamps.
Or better yet…just print enough money that everyone can have some..
Wait! That´s what they are doing now!

Sagman´s post reminded me of before Obama was sworn in back in January 2009, he vacationed in Hawaii and remember those photos of him barechested?

"Government" has slain, terrorized and destroyed, demoralized and ruined more people than anything ever on this planet."

It is the single greatest evil that lives among us, lives off us.

Government is a species of vampire, fangs deep in our necks. And once bitten, your soul turns into one of theirs.

Government is the problem not the solution. In general the bigger an organization the more likely it is to be dysfunctional. The more money there is in one place the more shysters will be attracted! The Principle of Subsidiarity states that public functions should be handled by the smallest most local organizations whenever possible. This is the exact reverse of the centralizing statist tendencies of government today. Large scale government is an extremely wasteful way to take care of social needs. A statistic I heard which is probably long out of date is that it takes $70.oo to give $1.oo to a needy person because of bureaucratic waste. We need an APP for that along with showing the national debt show how little of this money achieves it´s stated purpose and how even less achieves a genuine constitutional purpose. This it the sort of groundwork needed to educate a population on the results of statist government!

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

They are women and minorities who honor God, family, and country. They are self-reliant, extremely successful and do not view themselves as victims.

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

Hillarycare Would Cause People

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
