Screwing Capitalism

internet-freedom-eagle Obama's star

buzzard[1]

Here we go again.  Another executive order, wrongly justified, by our king Obama, is waiting for his signature.  He wants to give all salaried workers overtime pay.  This is another kick in the ass to our capitalistic economy.  It will hurt not only businesses but also the employee.

The obvious destruction of business practices are goals that the Obama administration has constantly pursued with good intentions, but has repeatedly screwed the economy.  Every one of his initiatives has failed and he doesn’t take the blame for his failures, he just blames everyone and everything else.  His flawed ego and his cerebral synaptic neurotransmitters must have crossed over to that place called, “Never Never Land”.

This is another assassination of a freedom of choice.  Obama doesn’t realize salaried employees hired have a guarantee of a consistent pay scale for their work effort, something that any true mentor of business knows from experience.  I’m sure that any overtime by an employee is a decision made by the employee knowing that he/she took the job with the knowledge that time is always a factor and a choice.  A salaried employee can quit and look for a more satisfying job if he feels overtime is not their cup of tea.  An employee on the clock can have hours cut if the employer deems necessary resulting in a lower take home pay.

The most obvious problem is who will set the proposed percentage scale for salaries.  If hourly employees get time and a half and double time for their efforts after forty hours of work, would you trust the government to set the pay scale after the Obamacare ignominy?  This would be another idiotic structure failure for businesses.

Obama is now risking salaried employees of their status quo to become potential hourly paid employees.  Now the employers will be able to cut their hours and not pay the overtime all because of Obama’s tyrannical edicts.  Businesses will hire more temporary employees or part time workers to save money and insurance costs.  Does this make any logical sense?

Congress better get off their duffs and do something to stop this barrage of destroying the American Dream.

Mr. Obama has lowered the standards of our military both, land and sea, he had given away our rights to missile defense systems, put us in a national debt to a point of no return, and on top of all this he is giving away our right to the functioning of our Internet control.  He is turning this nation into a third world country and our nation’s strong leadership in this world is turning us into a global circus.

This administrative fiasco is like putting a juggler in a leadership position of aerospace engineering, with no experience whatsoever.  I haven’t seen this much ineptness since Jimmy Carter screwed up the Iranian hostage rescue when we lost helicopter troops during the ordeal.  It took a conservative Ronald Reagan to fix it.  President Reagan stopped the cold and was the catalyst that brought down the Berlin Wall.  He created his Star Wars Defense Initiative and it was the core defensive asset in the deterrence of global nuclear destruction.

It is the obligation of all of us to look at the obvious impending downfall of America.  Stop this progressive surge on our future existence by listening to those of us who believe in our economic survival.  If you want to protest something, protest those progressive professors who spew the same destructive rhetoric that is influencing our educational facilities.  If you continue to listen to those who demean conservatism and the love of all citizens to be productive for the survival of the family values, you will find yourself under the power of those who will eventually place you into government servitude and your Constitutional rights obliterated.  We must repair all the mistakes that have happened so far.  Otherwise, we will pay for it with our lives along with our future heirs.

Crackdown on School Lunches

Are you still hungry?

Typical School Lunch

 

buzzard[1]

Every week, our local Sunday paper poses a question to a few random students.  This week it was how they felt concerning the lunches and the nutritious values.  I would have to agree with the majority of the kids.  It is terrible tasting and unappealing most of the time.

I do not understand why we accept Federal Government mandates that twist the schools into serving such crap to our kids all for the sake of nutrition.  The government funds education so they feel they have the right to do what they demand regardless of what the kids or parents think.  The agenda of the White House “sitting mother” decides to advocate healthy foods.  Yet she often feeds her kids the same “garbage” that she advocates is not healthy.  Video blurbs document it as we have all seen.

I have read where one school cafeteria monitor took away a child’s brown bad lunch because it was not healthy according to the school standards.  What right does a school monitor have the right to trump a parent’s right to feed their child via a brown bag cuisine?  After the uproar from parents went ballistic on the televised news, the school faced total embarrassment and made a policy change with a reprimand of said monitor.

I hate to bring up the past, but when I was in high school in the late 1960’s, the food was darn near what the food channel terms as “comfort foods”.  I was a typical nerd (with a pocket protector) but I was athletic as well.  I was on the swim team, but after school I was a YMCA Leader‘s Club volunteer member that taught kids basic gymnastics, like trampoline, tumbling, and vaulting.  Swimming was also a part of that ordeal.  I did all of that and even ran 3 to 10 miles a day, all the while I was teaching music professionally at 17 years of age at a private music school across the street from the “Y”.

I was a cool 185 lbs. throughout high school (most of the way though my Navy years until I got married) and I held 2 records for eating.  Bragging, no, I’m just stating a fact as to what the asinine government is doing to our kids.  I often carried two trays of food into the cafeteria.  Our ladies that cooked were terrific.  The two records were the result of the fastest time to down one meal and the other was the most eaten at one sitting.  It was just a passing phase of my life.  The chubby kid, who wanted to eat against me, turned tail when he saw me devour 4 trays at one sitting when my friends offered to pay for it.  Obesity in our high school was at a minimum as gym classes were a part of our school schedule.

I am just saying that if a young child or teen is active enough, he/she will burn all that out of their system.  Denying them the right to enjoy decent food menus is insane.  We, as adults, have the ability to understand our physical makeup and we can make those choices.  We have the tools and the know how to regulate those pounds.  Aging and cell degeneration is a fact for everyone in life.  If you think that child obesity is a big problem, let the parents be responsible and eventually the child will change with the advice of parental guidance no matter how they handle their approach.  Let the kids enjoy their freedom as kids and not as a government food experiment to eliminate the slim (excuse the pun) possibility of obesity.

Parents, you should revolt against the school and their government bias and let your kids enjoy whatever they want to eat.  They are only young once and they do not need the constant push into adulthood until it’s their time to take onus of their adult lives.  As adults, they will have the choice of continuing their lives however they choose, and at whenever weight they wish to keep.

When I was young, I wouldn’t eat liver and onions or green beans.  I didn’t eat asparagus or brussel sprouts because my parents were from the old European generation of the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s.  They ate the basics and I did the same.  Adulthood gave way to changing taste buds and many new items are on my menu today, including those items mentioned.

There will always be kids with weight problems.  In my day, we were out practically every day doing something, a pickup softball game, or a football game.  Bike trips were always something to do.  We invented games to keep us busy, both physical and mental.  Parents need to get their kids up off their asses and have them do activities that encourage exercise.  A schedule for homework is vital and the video games and TV are secondary.

I realize the electronic technology draws the intellectual interest of any child but when they ignore you when you are trying to talk to them, it is time to say, “Not now and no more until…”.  When the daily occupation of a video game is there, the imagination of every child is at risk   Trust me when I say, I enjoyed PONG when it first came out, as well as the games after, but by that time I was an adult with a degree in electronics and I built the color TV I was playing on.  We need those kids to wonder about how to do things and make good things happen.  That’s how we should approach our children.

Food regulation is only a small part of our nation’s problem.  Everywhere there are food police waiting to put their progressive agendas to work and make you pawns of their tyrannical power grab.  If you are a Vegan or a vegetarian and that is your desire, then good for you.  Kids under the age of 18 should not be vegetarians.  They need everything including proteins and carbs to make their bodies solid for activities.

So don’t preach to me with your power push and make me your pet.  I have the freedom to choose just as you do.  Keep your priorities to yourself and if you need to save someone else, bite your tongue and read the Constitution concerning freedom of choice.  There is no freedom to persecute me into a raving madman.

 

R.S.V.P Vladimir Putin

RSVP 3

buzzard[1]

I cannot believe the newest idiocy by President Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry.

rsvp

Not only is Obama acting like the provincial wuss, but also, he’s allowing Kerry to spew the same verbal rhetorical garbage to the media.  Obama is showing the world and especially our allies that he is spineless and talk is cheap.  He might as well just give Putin an invitation and a R.S.V.P. to come to our country and help himself,  especially now with Obama’s budget cuts to our military.  Every move backward, that Obama takes, is a forward dare by Putin.  I’m very sure Putin is watching every dysfunctional step in our government structure and he’s taking advantage of it knowing Obama has no kahunas.

With all this happening in the Crimean Peninsula and the Ukraine, what does Obama do?  He decides to let the EPA, set new restrictions on sulfur content in the gasoline production, for the second time, from 90 % to 10%.  There is no indication or evidence of why that reduction is being promulgated and enacted if it does not help the environment or our health.  All it does is increase costs of our gasoline usage by at least a dime a gallon and screws the car manufacturers by making them make changes to the manufacturing processes, resulting in higher car prices.

It’s another crushing blow to our economic struggle for improvement.    Obama might as well get on Air Force One and take a seat next to Putin in Russia, and then annex the US as Russian property.  We have two and a half years more of Obama’s dictatorship and no one is doing anything about it.  All Congress is doing is sitting on their proverbial asses and allowing Obama to do whatever the hell he wants.  Harsh language, you say, you betcha!

The safety of our country is at risk here.  And Senator Harry Reid…he’s nothing but an Obama ass kisser.  He does nothing but prevent the truth from being told for his own agendas.  I truly believe Obama wanted the presidency so that he could take numerous long vacations, play golf, and B-ball, so he didn’t have to deal with leadership, all on the taxpayer’s dime.

What happened to President Reagan’s Star Wars Initiative?  It must still exist.  We have a new ship that has laser firepower and it never misses its targets, no matter how fast the jets fly.  The power we have does not mean war, but it will be a deterrent if we stand together with a line drawn in the sand.  Where is the courage and integrity of our government to stand firm on freedom?

I read the other day about a question of what will happen if missiles are fired upon the white House.  The solution was to put up blimps in the sky and check for missiles.  How high tech is that?  By the time the blimps are in the sky, we can say good-bye to Washington, D.C., but on second thought…

It is always iffy when electing a government official.  Promises are always broken because no matter what a politician decries, he has to be backed by other politicians who may not agree.  It takes the Legislative Congress and the Executive branch to make it happen.  This is a normal standoff we experience every day, every year, and every election.  But with the powerful oration of Obama, he has convinced the “uninformed and the gullible” that he can do it and solve our problems.

Here is a man who has no experience in business, no experience in leadership, and has no common sense regarding the fundamentals of our constitutional obligations, even when he declared he was a student of the constitution.  And you, the voters, were dumb enough to fall for it.  I guess Obama’s “business” card should read, “Fire, fire, pants on fire.  I promise to tell you the lies I can muster (master)”.

I never thought I would live long enough to see a sitting president surpass the idiocy and inane term of Jimmy Carter.  Obama makes Carter look like a cub scout.  Obama has screwed the American Taxpayer with so many blatant lies.  He promoted the raising of gas prices, no foreign policies, ridiculous healthcare mandates, outrageous EPA regulations, and the destruction of energy companies, preventing business startups and creating their downfalls.

We, as targets of all this destructive and idealistic disappointments, are in dire need of investing in the most popular health product today…Preparation-H.  I remember years ago when the shoplifters made Preparation-H their number one product to steal.  Do you know why?  It helped reduce the widening of their nostril cavities when snorting continuously the abundance of cocaine.  Gee, I wonder who was the first to come up with that idea.

Are you ready for a “real” change and not a prevaricated one?  Mid-term elections are ready for your votes.  So, unless the “real” change happens in November, grab your ankles, bend over, and kiss your ass goodbye.

NYC Heading for Economic Disaster

buzzard[1]

They said a Democrat hasn’t been a major since 1989.  Now that is a stupid statement to make.  Bloomberg was a moderate Republican/Independent.  He was once a Democrat but remained a Democrat at heart.  His questionable mayoral leadership revealed all his ridiculous ideas and intentions.  I think I can place him at number 7 on the “Dumbass” scale.

Proposing a law to ban large soda cups was a strike against our freedom of choice.  Personal choice is our right not a privilege needing monitored.  I won’t continue to lose space here just to berate a past mayor, so let’s go to the next step.

The new NYC mayor, Bill de Blasio, is a would-be idiot in the making.  For the time being, I will put him one notch above Bloomberg as number 8 on the “Dumbass” scale.  His platform on income equality is another goal that is doomed for failure.  Why do I say this?  The reason is that he was backed by our elected dictator/president Obama.  He [Obama] has broken his oath, numerous times, by not defending our Constitution.  These acts, of Executive power of over-riding the law, should be punishable by both the Judicial and Legislative branches.

If De Blasio had any logical sense of intelligence, he would see that from the dawn of time, there has never been equality in income and there will never be in anyone’s lifetime.  Perhaps de Blasio is fantasizing and living in a Star Trek bubble where money is obsolete

Income equality will create more problems than he can imagine.  Raising the minimum wage would create a jobless increase when businesses decide to fire workers to compensate for keeping some at the higher minimum wage. If you look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you can see that the majority if minimum workers are teenagers who work for pocket money and saving for special things they want to purchase.  Waiters and waitresses are always below the minimum wage.  They are compensated for their good service with tips that usually far exceed the minimum wage cap.

An older person (20 – 30 years of age) who has lost his/her job and decides to take a minimum wage job on a temporary basis, those individuals are less than 1% of the population.  The best thing to do is find these people jobs.  Jobs increase the tax base, something that NYC is in desperate need of.

I recall traveling from Pennsylvania to Connecticut for over 50 years on Interstate 84.  The Newburgh-Beacon Bridge over the Hudson River was a bottleneck with traffic backed up for miles.  The best time was driving late night to early morning, when the traffic was slim to none.

A number of years back the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge placed a sign stating that another bridge will be built to alleviate the bottleneck and the 10-cent toll will be dropped.  The toll went up to 25-cents.  When the new bridge was complete, the toll on the westbound side heading toward Pennsylvania was dropped.  However, on the eastbound side, the toll was not dropped.  Over the years, the toll increased to $1.00, at least for now.  Take in consideration all the bridges in the New York City area.  The tolls are so high, that you need a high paying job just to pay the tolls.

De Blasio has his hands full, but I will predict that the economic structure of the city will not improve.  Not as long as economic equality is the goal for this administration.  It will be a lesson in futility for those who think that he will achieve that socialistic structure.  Education, fewer taxes, curtailing money spent for pet projects, and helping money-donating cohorts, will cause his future demise, as well as, the city’s functionality.

The downfall of NYC is looming in the shadows, and new Yorkers are blind to it.  With their selective hearing, they missed the obvious words of reason.  People of New York City, have fun eating your mistake.

Anti Gun Video Analysis

I reviewed Obama’s antigun video. It depicts what to do if a shooter’s gunfire is heard close by. It shows how to shut the door, locking it, blocking it with heavy items (if there are any) and grabbing a pair of scissors from a drawer. If no scissors available, then duck under a desk (if you have one). I’m sure that the closed door will keep the shooter from entering the room even after he shoots off the lock and door knob. I am amazed that the Federal Government has to spend money on something that any individual with common sense can figure out for themselves. Goes to show you how ignorant the government seems to think we are.
Well I’ve decided to do one better. I made a pair of holsters and bought the longest and sharpest scissors and placed them in the holsters, one on each hip. The police do not need to worry because I don’t need a permit to carry and I can walk around without worry knowing the sight of these scissors will scare the would-be shooter from attacking or mugging me. These scissors are the greatest lifelines between me and the oncoming bullet shot from a non-registered gun with the serial numbered filed off. My super scissors will protect me (I hope) if I get close enough to impale the perpetrator. Perhaps my scissors can deflect the bullets from harming me like Wonder Woman’s bracelets.
Can anyone see the outrageous scenario the Obama Regime created, wasting money on a video doing absolutely nothing to physically protect the individual from a raging gunman? The Federal government cannot totally uphold all the gun laws already enacted. It’s unfortunate that people get hurt and often killed. The government cannot regulate anger, stupidity or those with mental illness. Owners of weapons should be taught and well versed on safety, whether it’s a hand gun, a rifle, or a knife. A word to the wise; Parents take heed. It is your fault if your descendants go astray; leave the government out of it. Society should concentrate on family values. However, no one can regulate the functionality of that perspective either. Between the irresponsibility of dead beat dads and the promiscuity of young teenage girls and women, they can care less about contraception. I suppose the real reason was both partners were in a comatose condition of sexual passion. Hello welfare office.
