Obsession of the Left - Sarah Palin

The political left in America, who invented the politics of personal destruction, now have a treasure trove of information to dig through concerning Alaska's former Governor, Sarah Palin. Never mind that she holds no political office. Never mind that she is not running for office. They are spending valuable time and energy in an effort to dig up dirt on Mrs. Palin.

They want their followers to help them dig. I post opinions at Huffington Post so I'm on their emailing list. They sent an email, Subject: "Read Sarah Palin's Inbox", asking if I would like to help Advance the persecution.

The email reads in part (entire email below),
"This afternoon, we'll post the documents online and provide a place for you to leave notes on the emails you see." and
"We'll contact you as soon as we have the documents available for you to read. If you want to be among the first to read Sarah Palin's emails and help The Huffington Post write great stories about them, please sign up by following the link below."

While it might be interesting to gain insight into admired political figures; Who has the time to spend on this witch hunt. My guess would be the paid hunters have time and the motive, while their followers will drink it all in.

Sorry, Mr. Soros, I won't be signing up. I don't fear her, or her message, as your people seem to.

I suppose if the left had more time to spend on real issues, they might learn that they have been undermining this country for many decades now, and they certainly do not want to learn that.

The entire Email, rec'd June 10th, 2011 from .

Subject: Read Sarah Palin's Inbox

HuffPost Eyes & Ears to me
Today, the U.S. media will get its first glimpse of more than 24,000 emails sent and received by Sarah Palin during her tenure as governor of Alaska. These emails were originally requested by journalists, citizens and other groups in 2008, when Palin was Sen. John McCain's running mate on the Republican presidential ticket. They are being released now after years of delays.

We need your help going through this mass of documents to find notable passages and references to pass on to our reporters.

GOP Presidential Candidate Huntsman - Not

I was headed to the grocery store this past Saturday when I heard presidential candidate Governor John Huntsman indicate that he supports banning so-called assault weapons on the Hugh Hewitt radio show. I'm sure this will revelation will have an effect on his NRA + A rating.

Of course, the Governor has sent an email to Mr. Hewitt claiming he misunderstood the question.


If he misunderstood the question, then he has no business being President of The United States. I believe over the past three years we have experienced what happens when a president hasn't understood questions. I.e., massive new debt, prolonged high unemployment, programs that depress the job markets and no indication that he has learned anything since taking office.

That question was followed with a question on the Defense of Marriage Act, signed by President Clinton in 1996. His answer was ambiguous while registering his support for same-sex civil unions.

I don't recall the the exact quote, if a candidate mostly sees the government the way you do, vote for him/her. If not, vote for someone else. My hope is that this guy does not win the GOP nomination. Voting for him could be difficult.

What do you think?

Hugh Hewitt show transcript excerpt (from his blog):
HH: Would you veto an assault weapons ban?

JH: I would not veto an assault weapons ban.

HH: Would you veto repeal of the Defense Of Marriage Act?

JH: I personally am for civil unions. I don’t think we do an adequate job when it comes to equality at that level. I am for traditional marriage. I would have to look carefully at the language.

The Governor's assault weapon correction is posted on Hugh Hewitt's blog.

The Democratic Party's Recession

Just a thought, but it just occurred to me that liberals, progressives and Democrats always blame business for screwing over the "working stiff", who they claim to protect and care about. But if you think about, the US Congress, state legislatures and local governments always, always make a grab for your earnings in the form of taxes, fees and penalties. And they never ever find any reason to cut into their own pay.

Lately, they have not only blamed capitalism, but are quick to point out that the current recession started under the previous administration. I believe it is important to add two unchangeable facts to the conversation.

1. The US President cannot appropriate a single dime from anyone, any business or anywhere, without the US Congress first passing a law to appropriate those funds. The president can only veto the legislation if he has been advised to oppose it.

2. The country's, and the world's economy was doing just fine until 2007, when the Democrats took control of the US Congress.

The democrats are still in control of the presidency and the US Senate.

June 2011, the recession continues*.

The Republicans in control of the US House of Representatives cannot make any legislation into law without the cooperation of the US Senate and the president.

We can blame zero percent of this recession and its continuation to Republicans, although they are partially complicit in setting up the playing field for an economic meltdown.

Come November 2012 we will have an opportunity reduce the influence of the US Congress' and this president's failure to understand what they are doing by putting Republicans in control.

* The government's definition of an official recession is not the definition any unemployed person who lost their home and/or life's savings would use. Much like the way the politicians calculate inflation, it is designed to minimize blame on those politicians make and enforce (or not) those laws.

Five Truisms about "Spreading the Wealth"

I did not write a word of this, but I agree 100%.

Someone should send these to our Progressives.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Received in one of those emails that works its way around the internet. I do not know who to credit, but it makes perfect sense to me.

BTW: Number five has already begun to destroy this once great nation.
