Time To FIGHT BACK – With INGENIOUS TACTICS

An Open Letter to the 9-12 Movement and the Tea Party Participants


August 6, 2009

Dear Participants of the 9-12 Project and Tea Parties,

God Love ya’ gang.

I know what you are trying to do and believe me, I think it is noble. Five years too late, but noble. I am aware that some of your groups have been hijacked by the usual screwball hypocritical RNC types and some groups are doing all they can to evict the clowns or bypass them. Others just get into lockstep and march with the liars who brought our nation to this point thinking that a Republican Progressive is better than a Democrat Socialist Progressive. That’s for another day or for everyone to read the editorial I wrote titled “Blame Wisconsin” for a historical perspective.

The AstroTurf protests look great (sorry but I just grinned reading the grimace on the face of the White House Robots when they uttered those words) but now what? You’ve caught the semi and have the rear tire in your dog jowls and you don’t know what to do. Meanwhile, the socialists are trying to shift the big semi of public opinion into reverse and crush your movement. As the big dog right now, you can either move up to the front and chew those tires off or play by the same old playbook and get steamrolled by the MMM (Marxist Media Movement) which will be more than happy to have pictures of your protests broadcast worldwide with plants wearing Nazi emblems as the Wicked Witch of the West so proudly lied about on national television.

Glenn Beck took a call before the noon hour today about the protests and town halls and his suggestion was to protest outside of their offices in local communities and if they were single, in front of the homes of the cowards, er politicians who were ducking their constituents. The problem is that your movements have failed to realize that you are not their constituents whether you voted for them or not. Glenn fails to address this issue not because he is scared, although he should be, in reality he probably cannot address the issue due to legal liability problems. Thus I offer a solution which will cost your movements and the protests a measly $2.20 each to start and a wee bit more in the end, if you would like to learn how to win the war instead of just one or two battles.

I was Them

This is a first time, hard time, and most painful admission but most of my readers would understand that if you were a college student in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s odds are you were a Reagan hating left wingnut lunatic.

I was at that time as a sophomore, one of those subterranean slimeballs because it was great dating hippie chicks and even better it meant you did not have to be responsible for anything. Until you graduated from college and reality sets in. Which I did. And then you realized the hippie chicks were nasty skanks who viewed clothing optional the same way they viewed shaving and showering as optional also.

Thus a great conversion happened in my life and I was saved from a life of being a community organizer with no morals and a preplanned desire to usurp the Constitution and institute every Marxist’s wet dream fantasy. However during my time being a moron and a bum, I did learn how their non-violent tactics worked and much to my chagrin now, they were quite effective. Until the really radical nutcases moved in and that is when America finally had had enough and rejected the scum.

So just how did they do it?

$0.44 and Ingenuity

A stamp can cause more pain to the Obamanation than a screaming seventy year old woman at a town hall meeting. More on that a bit later. Now that the Marxist movements have captured your strategy, you can not stay static nor remain focused. It is time to attack, not with violence but with brilliance, the constituents of the political class need a message sent to them and considering the fragile nature of their economic designs, they are most vulnerable at this time for paying attention to the voters and not their lackeys in Washington, D.C.

There is a website provided by the very people who we need to send a message to at the Federal Election Commission which provides you a portal for the 2008 and 2010 elections to see just who is donating money to these morons who refuse to listen to the will of the people. A lot of people are under the misconception that businesses do not listen and do not pay attention but alas, that is a lie. You see, what the left wingnuts used to do during the hippie transition era of the late 1970’s is exactly the same tact that the poverty pimps used during the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Thus if you wish to get the attention of the political elites, you have to approach the business community and get their attention. First, you contact in writing or via telephone the business in question. You notify them that you are aware of their contributions to a certain Democratic Congresscritter, oh, like Kathy Castor from the Tampa area. You politely remind them that you pulled the information from the FEC website and that you do not approve of businesses who contribute funds to a politician who wishes to promote a certain issue, like socialized medicine. Let’s take a look at a sample page from this year with a list of contributors from the FEC website:

Wow, two large companies felt it was necessary to pay homage and contributions to a noted left wing socialist type who supports everything antithetical to capitalist ideals. I guess this means that they won’t mind then, a series of protests in front of their businesses with oh, say 200 or 300 9-12ers or Tea Party supporters with signs stating that their companies support stealing health care from the elderly, Eugenics, and candidates that support these causes. If you do that, do it on a public sidewalk and make sure that when they television cameras arrive, you bunch up and look noisy so the reporters can report that the “mob” makes them “uncomfortable.” Whatever you do, do not act violently! Be peaceful, chant, pray, sing whatever to cause pain for the business in question until they agree IN WRITING to no longer support the cause or politician(s) you oppose.

That is how the left did it. They realized decades ago that protesting the candidates or politicians accomplished nothing but by boycotting the contributors on a local basis you can create pain that will piss off the donors and finally get legitimate recognition that the media will not ignore. Think about “Joe’s Chevrolet” should it be on that list. How many customers do you think will avoid the ‘Cash for Clunker’s’ bargains if there are two hundred protesters on the sidewalk in front of their business on a Saturday afternoon because the owner decided to pay bribe money to a local politician? You can not win calling, you can not win faxing, you can not win whining to Mr. Beck on the radio; you must adapt, change and confront.

Now for the big question: What happens if the police arrive?

You have to have a plan to bail the cohorts out of jail. Do not resist arrest, simply sit down on the sidewalk, lock arms and start singing the “My Country Tis’ of Thee” when they start to assemble in force. When the officers approach, politely inform them you will not disburse, that you are exercising your First Amendment right to protest (make sure you have a permit but if the local government is corrupt, screw them, assemble anyways) and tell the officer you have to be booked. If they have to start hauling 200 people a day to the local lock up for processing, the businesses will begin to feel the impact as you spread the word.

When an officer approaches, ask if you can pray first and invite him to pray with you. Recite the Lord’s Prayer, then unhook your arm from the person next to you, and follow his or hers instructions with a “yes sir” or “yes ma’am” (unless the officer’s last name is “Boxer” then you say ‘yes Senator’) and they will haul you off to jail. If 200 people did this, the police will respect you for cooperating but you’ll get a small fine as a result and some media attention, especially if they arrest 200 plus seventy year old protesters.

Now for the first class stamp. A major corporation like a Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, etc. could care less about one letter. But a million letters a day? Yeah, that would get their attention. Do not waste your time on sending letters to companies where the government has direct control or ownership like Bank of America, Citigroup, Fannie Mae, GM, etc. Work on the medium sized companies that do not have the staff or personnel to handle the load. Look for a mid-Fortune 500 or Fortune 1000 company for example with revenues less than one billion bucks, but enough to contribute to the anti-American politicians and causes. A semi-trailer full of bags of mail for a week will slow their company processes down and with polite letters mixed in with their regular mail either force a public comment about their support for Obamanation policies or better yet, force them to withdraw financial support for those politicians (the real goal) who think you are just another right wing radical nut clutching your Bible and gun. This is more of a 9-12 Project type of thing but in your letters, please be factual, polite and do not curse. Most importantly, hand write every one of them and thank your local Post Office for the hard work those poor folks put into the effort carrying all the mail. They are just schmucks like us, trying to get by.

That is how the nuts work gang. They want to disrupt and hijack funding, not convince the masses they are right or wrong. They realized this in the 1990’s and moved accordingly. I would suggest those of you so inclined to make a difference consider your position, your liabilities and these tactics as there are oh so many more which one can use if you read their playbook or just remember whatannoyed the hell out of you in the late 1970’s.

As for myself, I will remind you that I’m a 73er. The last person you want to make a call to action for.

I wish you the greatest of success and hope you win the day. If not, we are ready.

God Bless,

John Galt

Why Obama’s Amerika Will Cost You Your Job

 


If your boss is honest and forthright, this is a memo you might be getting yourself sometime in the very near future:

To All My Valued Employees 

Memo: Job Security

Distribution: To All My Valued Employees

There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company. More specifically, your job. As you know, the changing economy presents many challenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn’t pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country.

However, let me tell you some little tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interest.

First, while it is easy to spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that, for every business owner, there is a Back Story. This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear. Sure, you see me park my Mercedes outside. You’ve seen my big home at last year’s Christmas party. I’m sure; all these flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealized thoughts about my life.

 

However, what you don’t see is the BACK STORY:

 

I started this company 28 years ago. I lived in a 300 square foot studio apartment for 3 years. I converted my entire apartment into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building my company, which by the way, would eventually employ you.

 

My diet consisted of Ramen Pride noodles because every dollar I saved went back into this company. I drove a rusty Toyota Corolla with a defective transmission. I didn’t have time to date. Often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. In fact, I was married to my business — hard work, discipline, and sacrifice.

 

Meanwhile, my friends got jobs. They worked 40 hours a week, made a modest $50K a year, and spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars, lived in expensive homes, and wore fancy designer clothes. Instead of hitting the Nordstrom’s for the latest hot fashion item, I was trolling through the discount store extracting any clothing item that didn’t look like fashion from the 70’s. My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time, my money, and my life into a business with a vision that eventually, some day, I too, will be able to afford these luxuries my friends supposedly had.

 

You physically arrive at the office at 9 AM, mentally check in at about noon, and then leave at 5 PM, I don’t. There is no “off” button for me. When you leave the office, you are done and you have a weekend all to yourself. I unfortunately do not have the freedom. I eat, and breathe this company every minute of the day. There is no rest. There is no weekend. There is no happy hour. I attach this business to my hip every day like a 1 year old special-needs child. You, of course, only see the fruits of my labor — the nice house, the Mercedes, the vacations… you never realize the Back Story and the sacrifices I’ve made.

 

Now, the economy is falling apart and I, the guy that made all the right decisions and saved his money, have to bail-out all the people who didn’t. The people who overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed more than a decade of my life for.

 

Yes, business ownership has is benefits but the price I’ve paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the cost of running this business, and employing you, is starting to eclipse the threshold of marginal benefit and let me tell you why:

 

The government taxes me to death and thinks I don’t pay enough. I have State taxes, Federal taxes, Property taxes, Sales and use taxes, Payroll taxes, Workers compensation taxes, and Unemployment taxes. Taxes on taxes. I have to hire a tax man to manage all these taxes and then guess what? I have to pay taxes for employing him. Government mandates and regulates all the accounting that goes with it, which now occupies much of my time. On Oct 15th, I wrote a check to the US Treasury for $288,000 for quarterly taxes. You know what my “stimulus” check was. Zero… Nada… Zilch.

 

The question I have is this: Who is stimulating the economy? Me, the guy who has provided 14 people good paying jobs and serves over 2,200,000 people per year with a flourishing business or the single mother, sitting at home pregnant with her fourth child waiting for her next welfare check? Obviously, government feels the latter is the real economic stimulus of this country.

 

The fact is, if I deducted 50% of your paycheck you’d quit and you wouldn’t work here. I mean, why should you? That’s nuts. Who wants only 50% of their hard work rewarded? Well, I agree, which is why your job is in jeopardy.

Here is what many of you don’t understand … to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Guess what would happen if the government mandated I didn’t need to pay taxes. Instead of depositing that $288,000 into the Washington black-hole, I would have spent it, hired more employees, and generated substantial economic growth. My employees would have enjoyed the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries. You can forget it now.

 

When you have a comatose man on the verge of death, you don’t defibrillate and shock his thumb, thinking that will bring him back to life, do you? No, you defibrillate his heart. Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate it, not kill it. Suddenly, the power brokers in Washington believe the poor of America are the essential drivers of the American economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

So where am I going with all this? It’s quite simple. My reaction will be swift and simple when the governments impose new taxes on me, or my company. I’ll fire you and I’ll fire your co-workers. You can then plead with the government to pay for your mortgage, your SUV, and your child’s future. Frankly, it isn’t my problem anymore. I will close this company down, move to another country, and retire. You see, I’m done. I’m done with a country that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. That destroys my motivation to work and to provide jobs and it will cost me my citizenship.

 

If you lose your job, it won’t be at the hands of the economy; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country, steam-rolled the constitution, and will have changed its landscape forever. If that happens, you can find me sitting on a beach, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

 

Signed,

 

THE BOSS

Obama Unveils New Soviet Symbol To Be Used

Obama Commisions New Emblem to be Stamped on Projects Funded by Stimulus Bill

recoverygov

If the symbolism of the Soviets was enough to nauseate you – then prepare to vomit.

Obama has unveiled new symbols that will be ‘stamped’ on all projects funded with his giant Marxist Pork bill.

The imagery is disturbing if you consider that this new symbol – representing a U.S. government program – is maroon, white , blue and green.

A field of blue with white stars represents the upper 1/2- symbolizing the dominance of government over both agriculture and industry.

Instead of using an obvious hammer and sickle to represent the Soviet worldview of his giant stimulus to Marxism, the idiots in the Obama Administration use a plant symbol on field of green and gears that do not align at all, on a maroon field.

At least the Soviets’ symbol of a hammer for industry and a sickle for agriculture were interlocking. Obviously Obama does not intend for the gears to work at all given what we see in the new symbol he will stamp everything that is funded with your money and mine with.

What is this narcissist’s obsession with making and changing government symbols to fit himself?

 

Emblems to Stamp Projects Funded by Stimulus

 

Put a stamp on it — that’s what the White House says.

President Obama announced today that his administration will begin stamping an emblem on projects funded by the economic stimulus package so that people can easily recognize the effects of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

All projects will be stamped with the ARRA logo (short for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) and lists the recovery.gov website on the emblem.

In remarks at the Department of Transportation this morning, Mr. Obama referenced the new emblems.

“We’re also making it easier for Americans to see what projects are being funded with their money as part of our recovery. So in the weeks to come, the signs denoting these projects are going to bear the new emblem of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” Obama said. “These emblems are symbols of our commitment to you, the American people — a commitment to investing your tax dollars wisely, to put Americans to work doing the work that needs to be done. So when you see them on projects that your tax dollars made possible, let it be a reminder that our government — your government — is doing its part to put the economy back on the road of recovery.”

Obama, who was at the Transportation Department to highlight the 150,000 specific jobs that would be saved or created under highway spending from the recovery act, also said that transportation specific projects would don a second emblem – bearing the word TIGER (short for Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery).

Obama’s Fast Track To Sovietizing America

From the moment Barack Obama was inaugurated on January 20th, the leftists who control Congress have – at his behest – gone on a drunken binge of runaway spending vis-à-vis an $850-bilion faux “stimulus” program that rewards failure and punishes success. It is already clear that The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act should be renamed The American Relapse-And-Needs-Resuscitation Act, as is evidenced by both the simultaneous plunge of the Dow and the president’s polling numbers, as well as an epidemic case of buyer’s remorse.

As Oklahoma Republican Senator Tom Coburn has written, “the stimulus is a step toward a Soviet America.”
Or, as Lenin said, “The way to crush the bourgeoisie [the middle class] is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”

 

Or, as Winston Churchill so presciently pronounced: “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
  

Writer Randall Hoven has elaborated upon what the president has “accomplished” in his first weeks in office. This is the short list.
·   Rewarded abortionists by freeing federal funds to pay for abortions both here and overseas.
·   Rewarded terrorists by not interrogating them too roughly.
·   Rewarded terrorists by closing Gitmo.
·   Punished the U.S. military by halting commissions until Gitmo is “reviewed.”
·   Rewarded the domestically-held terrorist Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri by “reviewing” his case.
·   Rewarded Gitmo detainee Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, an al-Qaida suspect in USS Cole in 200, that killed 17 US sailors, by dropping charges against him.
·   Rewarded terrorists from Hamas by granting them up to $20.3 million for the “conflict victims in Gaza.”
·   Rewarded terrorists by establishing a redress process if those suspected of wrongdoing are delayed or prohibited from boarding a flight. 
·   Rewarded female career “victims” by signing the “Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act” so women can wage equal-pay lawsuits, not for up to 180 days but for decades in the past.
·   Rewarded the American-hating president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, by “reaching out” to him – to which the madman demanded that the U.S. apologize to Iran for its actions for” the past 60 years” and remove all U.S. forces from the Middle East.
·   Rewarded labor unions by revoking a former executive order that forced employers to notify employees of their rights. 
·   Punished faith-based organizations by equating them with “neighborhood partnerships” like Planned Parenthood and ACORN – treating them ”like a house of God, in the eyes of the federal government.”
·   Punished fair-hiring employers by requiring federal executives to hire union-only members.
·   Punished the American people by issuing numerous draconian environmental dictates that insure zero energy independence for decades to come, if ever. 
In other words, Hoven says, it was all “pay back Democratic special interests…spend really, really huge amounts of other people’s money, [and] make terrorism a law-enforcement issue instead of a national-defense issue and watch terrorists and nuclear proliferators be released, from Pakistan to Yemen to Gitmo.
I haven’t even mentioned how much Obama has also:
·   Punished Americans by appointing chronic tax cheats and craven lobbyists to his cabinet and as advisors.
·   Punished Americans by reversing every promise he made about transparency, bipartisanship, and having an economic-growth bill with no pork.
·   Rewarded terrorists by authorizing $20.3 million to aid Palestinian refugees from Gaza – read Hamas – to “migrate.” But as journalist Judi McLeod and intelligence analyst Michael Travis have asked, “Is Obama opening the floodgates to Hamas” and “What security measures are in place to keep Hamas terrorists from gaining free access into the U.S.?”
·   Punished Americans by not firing – or even sanctioning – Attorney General Eric Holder, who called America a “nation of cowards.” 
·   Punished Americans by moving the once-objective census process into the White House’s to be overseen by the Chicago-machine flunkie, Rahm Emanuel.
·   And then there was the cringe-producing embarrassment he caused by granting his first interview to the Arab media, Dubai-based al Arabiya TV, where he proceeded to apologize for America’s “mistakes.” 
DON’T TREAD ON ME
Afraid that the Obama agenda includes trampling on states’ rights, 22 states are declaring sovereignty or planning to. Sovereignty is not the same as secession, in which a state or states threaten to leave the union. Sovereignty is granted under the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights. In short, it says that: “Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right…”   

The states now seeking sovereignty are expressing the fear that a new national government might seek to exercise powers not granted to the government and that states will lose their autonomy. In stark contrast are those who believe that Congress can enact – at the will or whim of the president – just about anything that strikes their socialist fancies. 

The states seeking sovereignty believe that if enough states get on board, they could press their claims together and prevail. The federal government, they say, has no physical existence, except for the machinery that runs it, but that the states are the country! 

As one blogger stated, “Whether they’re using a stick or a club, the states are drawing a line in the sand and placing the Federal Government on notice.”

Senate Says American People Don’t Care About Pork

The hubris and condescending arrogance of these Marxists that think themselves kings in office go FAAAAAR beyond what our forefather’s were willing to suffer by the indifference of Parliment and King George III.

It is getting to the time when we need to break out the tar and the feathers.

Stimulus We Need? 300 Million Dollars for Golf Carts?

Obama Warns Of “Catastrophe” Unless Stimulus Passes Quickly

The Entire Economy Rests on a Precipice of Disaster Unless D.C. Gets 300 Million for New Golf Carts

Senate Democrats add 300 million for Golf Carts to Stimulus

The U.S. Senate’s stimulus package includes $300 million for environmentally friendly modes of transportation, including “neighborhood electric vehicles” — which are, in fact, golf carts.

The 778-page Senate bill includes this allocation: “For capital expenditures and necessary expenses of acquiring motor vehicles with higher fuel economy, including: hybrid vehicles; neighborhood electric vehicles; electric vehicles; and commercially-available, plug-in hybrid vehicles, $300,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2011.

The Web site Townhall.com observes: “The Democrats thought they could fool you by renaming the money earmarked for golf carts in the stimulus bill as paying for ‘neighborhood electric vehicles’…

“Most people call them golf carts.”
