State Of The Union (dissected and translated)

I'm not sure I will have time for everything in a speech full of emptiness, symbolism, and lies, but I will attempt to address some of the excerpts from last nights Obama campaign speech:

Now, by itself, this simple recognition won't usher in a new era of cooperation. What comes of this moment is up to us. What comes of this moment will be determined not by whether we can sit together tonight, but whether we can work together tomorrow.

I believe we can. I believe we must. That's what the people who sent us here expect of us. With their votes, they've determined that governing will now be a shared responsibility between parties. New laws will only pass with support from Democrats and Republicans. We will move forward together, or not at all – for the challenges we face are bigger than party, and bigger than politics.

translated: vote for the democrats bills, or the next catchphrase we will start using is gridlock.

At stake right now is not who wins the next election – after all, we just had an election. At stake is whether new jobs and industries take root in this country, or somewhere else. It's whether the hard work and industry of our people is rewarded. It's whether we sustain the leadership that has made America not just a place on a map, but a light to the world.

We are poised for progress. Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is growing again.

But we have never measured progress by these yardsticks alone. We measure progress by the success of our people. By the jobs they can find and the quality of life those jobs offer. By the prospects of a small business owner who dreams of turning a good idea into a thriving enterprise. By the opportunities for a better life that we pass on to our children.

I'm not sure "sustain" is the right word to use here. What has Obama done to help small business owners. As he properly referenced, they are the people who create jobs in this nation, and the only thing he has done is raise taxes on them and create more government regulatory red tape to slow their progress.

We did that in December. Thanks to the tax cuts we passed, Americans' paychecks are a little bigger today. Every business can write off the full cost of the new investments they make this year. These steps, taken by Democrats and Republicans, will grow the economy and add to the more than one million private sector jobs created last year.

YOU LIE!!! Yeah, I said it!! Obama did not cut taxes one cent. Obama allowed the Bush era tax cuts to remain in effect. Let me get this straight, Obama blames every bad thing that happens on Bush, and every good thing Bush did he tries to take credit for. Plus, my memory isn't that short term yet that I don't remember how vehemently he, and his democratic cohorts fought to stop these tax cuts from remaining.

What's more, we are the first nation to be founded for the sake of an idea – the idea that each of us deserves the chance to shape our own destiny.

Exactly!! So please stop taking from those that go out and shape it and giving to those that refuse to. "idea", "chance", and "destiny" are not words that fit in a socialist nation.

Now it's our turn. We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.

Stop taking disproportionately from those that do this and giving to those that don't and you will create more people outperforming in these areas. It's really not rocket science.

We need to take responsibility for our deficit, and reform our government.

Hypocrisy, thy name is liberal!! Is that what you've done the last two years on your spending spree???

Our free enterprise system is what drives innovation. But because it's not always profitable for companies to invest in basic research, throughout history our government has provided cutting-edge scientists and inventors with the support that they need.

translation: Tax and Spend!!

Half a century ago, when the Soviets beat us into space with the launch of a satellite called Sputnik¸ we had no idea how we'd beat them to the moon. The science wasn't there yet. NASA didn't even exist. But after investing in better research and education, we didn't just surpass the Soviets; we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs.

Tax and Spend again...also of note. How dare he use NASA as an example when he has, in two years, cut their budget in a big way and announced that they were going to be a muslim outreach group?

This is our generation's Sputnik moment. Two years ago, I said that we needed to reach a level of research and development we haven't seen since the height of the Space Race. In a few weeks, I will be sending a budget to Congress that helps us meet that goal. We'll invest in biomedical research, information technology, and especially clean energy technology – an investment that will strengthen our security, protect our planet, and create countless new jobs for our people.

Spend, Spend, Spend!! Note he uses the word especially when it comes to "green" research, because these liberals still expect us to believe in global warming!! They have made too much money off the fairy tale and don't want it to die. A large part of our economic meltdown can be traced back to the overburdening "green" regulations that have been enacted over the last decade by congress. They have strangled many industries literally to death with all of the crazy rules they've instituted in the name of saving the earth from all of us. All of this over the global warming hoax!!

With more research and incentives, we can break our dependence on oil with biofuels, and become the first country to have 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2015.

I am willing to bet my entire retirement that unless the government buys 90% of them, that this will not happen. Really want to jumpstart the economy??? Stop with this electric car farce and DRILL BABY DRILL!!

We need to get behind this innovation. And to help pay for it, I'm asking Congress to eliminate the billions in taxpayer dollars we currently give to oil companies.

YOU LIE again!!! The government does not pay oil companies. Are you kidding me. The government taxes the hell out of oil companies, refuses to let them drill where they know there is oil, and attempts to villainize them if they dare to turn a 5% profit. What a joke this statement is!!!

Now, clean energy breakthroughs will only translate into clean energy jobs if businesses know there will be a market for what they're selling.

Uh, sorry Mr. President, free enterprise and capitalism will determine if there is a market for the above technology. When the government attempts to strong-arm capitalism and free markets in this manner it destroys the entire economy...see past American History for all the details.

Think about it. Over the next ten years, nearly half of all new jobs will require education that goes beyond a high school degree. And yet, as many as a quarter of our students aren't even finishing high school. The quality of our math and science education lags behind many other nations. America has fallen to 9th in the proportion of young people with a college degree. And so the question is whether all of us – as citizens, and as parents – are willing to do what's necessary to give every child a chance to succeed.

Yes, all those families in Washington DC thank you for cancelling their voucher programs. Well done.

Okay, I must apologize. I cannot read anymore of this transcript. The lies and misinformation are making me angry and I feel the urge to kick puppies...sorry PETA.

I can best sum up my response to the State of the Union with this line from Billy madison:

"Nowhere in your rambling incoherent response did you come close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. We are all dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul."

Aww! They're Going To Sit Together. Symbolism is Stupid!!

I'm not sure if you caught it in the title, but I really hate symbolism.

I mean seriously, do they think the American people are going to see this pointless gesture as an actual "mending of the fences." Are John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi going to be seen walking arm in arm each day to and from Capitol Hill?? Will there be compromise amongst lawmakers on passing legislation? I, for one, sure hope not!!! That's not what the American people elected the new Congress for. November's election was a statement by the American people that we wanted the legislating away of our freedoms to stop!! We want bills like the 3000 page unconstitutional Obamacare legislation to end. We want the out of control spending of our grandchildren's money to be squashed!!

This is obviously a ploy by liberals in the hopes that the newly elected Congress will do just that, compromise. I pray they will remember why they were elected and represent the people of America who elected them. I don't recall much compromise in the voices of the liberals when Obama was elected and they owned a filibuster-proof majority. Much needs to be done to repair the extreme damage that has been done to the Republic in the last two years. I pray our new Congress has the fortitude to do it.

On a lighter note, I am hearing disturbing news that many are planning on playing drinking games during the State of the Union address tonight. Apparently, President Obama is going insult the intelligence of Americans by using the word "investing" to disguise the unpopular word he really means, "spending." I implore conservatives to not play this game, as I fear thousands could end up in emergency rooms tonight with alcohol poisoning.

Civility is a Two Way Street

I am hearing two words used quite a bit lately by the state run media as well as politicians, rhetoric and civility. The recent tragedy in Tucson has shed light on exactly how ugly politicians can be. Much like a Marine can become numb to the violence of war when faced with it consistently, politicians are numb to decency and proper courtesy when it comes to commenting on tragic events.

It seems left wing politicians do not understand the proper adult behavior that is expected and required after such a tragic event, where lives were lost. Rather than see it as a humbling and sad occurrence, which requires a time for mourning for all directly involved, they immediately see the political angles they might take in order to destroy their opponents and build “street cred” in the political world.

Almost immediately after the shooting, liberal politicians and pundits seized upon a map Sarah Palin had created during election season with crosshairs on it to show which districts were winnable districts for conservatives in November. They launched a character-assassination campaign which was bold enough to actually blame the lives lost in this senseless shooting on Palin and her map.

Typical of liberals, they didn't bother to actually research facts in any of these claims, as it would soon be pointed out and proven that both democrats and republicans use these maps, complete with crosshairs, for every election season and have for some time. Additionally they scooped up another quote from Palin, "Don't retreat, reload." and attempted to convince the American people one of two things, A) Sarah Palin meant this literally or B) conservatives are too stupid to know that this was meant metaphorically.

Unfortunately for the media, Americans have awakened politically and are now unwilling to blindly accept media reporting as fact. It was amusing to watch the details of the shooter unfold over the next day or two. A chronic weed smoking, salvia using, psycho, who was infatuated with Congresswoman Giffords. He voted for Obama and worked on Giffords campaign in 2007. Not exactly a conservative poster child. Yet they continued with their baseless rant, expanding to radio personalities Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and Sean Hannity. Now the liberal pundits were beginning to show their hand. They were going to use this tragedy to attempt to shut down free speech on the airwaves. "Violent rhetoric" they screamed from every stage they could find.

If I am to accept their theory as plausible, then there must be hundreds of left-wing initiated shootings in the last ten years, as the democrats might want to look in their own house before throwing stones. Here are just a few of the "peaceful liberal" quotes over the past decade:

If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Barack Obama, at a June 13, 2008 campaign fundraiser in Philadelphia.

A policy of ethnic cleansing by inaction,” Barney Frank on Bush administration’s failure to rebuild neighborhoods in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, at a rally in Washington on February 8, 2006.

"..And then there’s Rumsfeld who said of Iraq ‘We have our good days and our bad days.’ We should put this S.O.B. up against a wall and say ‘This is one of our bad days’ and pull the trigger." — From a fundraising ad put out by the St. Petersburg Democratic Club

"You guys see Live and Let Die, the great Bond film with Yaphet Kotto as the bad guy, Mr. Big? In the end they jam a big CO2 pellet in his face and he blew up. I have to tell you, Rush Limbaugh is looking more and more like Mr. Big, and at some point somebody’s going to jam a CO2 pellet into his head and he’s going to explode like a giant blimp. That day may come. Not yet. But we’ll be there to watch. I think he’s Mr. Big, I think Yaphet Kotto. Are you watching, Rush?" — Chris Matthews

Intermingled into their baseless commentaries now is the call for everyone to be more “civil” and stop all the political “rhetoric”. What I find so amusing about this call for decency is that it never comes when the left has the upper hand in the legislature. When they had the dominating, filibuster-proof majority in Congress it was perfectly okay for them to say and do whatever they wanted, as shown above. Here are a few more quotes from the peaceful, civil, left.

If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly. That’s right. The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick,” Rep. Alan Grayson, House floor, September 29, 2009

"F*** God D*mned Joe the God D*mned Motherf*cking plumber! I want Motherf*cking Joe the plumber dead." — Liberal talk show host Charles Karel Bouley on the air.

"Republicans don’t believe in the imagination, partly because so few of them have one, but mostly because it gets in the way of their chosen work, which is to destroy the human race and the planet. Human beings, who have imaginations, can see a recipe for disaster in the making; Republicans, whose goal in life is to profit from disaster and who don’t give a hoot about human beings, either can’t or won’t. Which is why I personally think they should be exterminated before they cause any more harm." — The Village Voice’s Michael Feingold, in a theater review of all places

"Drudge? Aw, Drudge, somebody ought to wrap a strong Republican entrail around his neck and hoist him up about six feet in the air and watch him bounce." — Liberal radio host, Mike Malloy

Yes, the left love to toss the first dozen or so slices of pizza in the cafeteria food fight, then chastise everyone everyone for lack of maturity and draw up regulations to prevent further food fights.

"I know how the ‘tea party’ people feel, the anger, venom and bile that many of them showed during the recent House vote on health-care reform. I know because I want to spit on them, take one of their ‘Obama Plan White Slavery’ signs and knock every racist and homophobic tooth out of their Cro-Magnon heads." — The Washington Post’s Courtland Milloy

"I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease," Julianne Malveaux, radio host, regarding Justice Clarence Thomas

"What you have now" -- this is left-wing activist and actress Janeane Garofalo, analyzing the Republican Party during an appearance at the 92d Street Y in New York this year -- "is people that are closet racists, misogynists, homophobes, and people who love . . . the politics of exclusion identifying as conservative."

Yes, once again, hypocrisy, thy name is liberal. Though we must respect their work ethic. They are most assuredly workaholics. When the rest of the nation was mourning this tragedy, the democrats were strategizing and attacking. No, we can't question their work ethic. When everyone else was making funeral arrangements saying prayers, the Obama administration was printing t-shirts with campaign slogans for the memorial service. They were drawing up magical speeches for the President complete with (applause) drawn in. Well done, Mr. President!! Mission accomplished!! I see you got a 6 to 7 point bump in your approval rating from this. How proud the administration must be.

Ding Dong, Olbermann's Gone!!

As many of you know, I am extremely upset by the firing of Keith Olbermann. It's hard to believe such a classy guy would be canned by MSNBC. I am searching for what reason they possibly could have had and all I can come up with is the fact that he is the biggest douche-biscuit on television. Since when is that a crime on MSNBC???
