NRA reveals Obama gun antipathy

By: moonlightcowboy, 10:36 PM GMT on October 30, 2008



Obama voted four times in the IL legislature against letting law-abiding citizens to save their own lives in their own homes.
Yet, he enjoys the armed security of the Secret Service around the clock. He clearly repeats he's against concealed carry, etc. Thankfully, the NRA is opposed to Obama's positions. NObama, NOway!



...oh, and right here before you hit play, uuummm turn the volume up! ;P



Oh, and it wouldn't hurt none to pass it on! Good STUFF!


Note: The artist's youtube site is 1PoorJames1 He is the one with the washboard. You can find it by searching on Poor James and the Swamp Crows. I was helping upload the vid and put it on my site. I happen to be the guy in the blue hat.

Poor James Statement : I am an oddity I admit, a guy with a life long love of music, art and literature, living in the sticks in a little cabin (built with my own hands) with my girlfriend, her two horses, three dogs, three cats, plus the occassional stray who drops by for brunch, and yet... I am a right-wing conservative. How can this be you ask? Quite simply, I have a built in, infallible bull-shit detector (gift from my dear ol' Dad.) I keep my feet planted firmly on the ground and observe what works for our country, and that is conservative ideals: hard work, personal responsibility, small government, fiscal restraint, honor, and duty to family and country. I also see what weakens our country: heavy taxation and redistribution, entitlements for non-producers, disdain for America and an increasingly flexible sense of right and wrong. Granted, as a songwriter, I have many lib associates whose wacky socialist views I endure, but I'll be damned if I'll have them anywhere near government or policy making. America did not exude from the ethereal herbal vapors of some drug inspired utopian manifesto, but was built purposefully upon solid ground by brilliant, brave, sober, God-fearing conservatives. About this song Obama No Merci Beaucoup. You may recall a month or so ago Mr. Obama bemoaning the dearth of mulit-lingual Americans whom, when traveling abroad, could but manage to mutter a paltry "merci beaucoup" (thankyou very much.) Hence the song title Obama No Merci Beaucoup (Obama, no thankyou very much.) If I were rich I would flood the media with independent anti-Obama ads. If I were a Hollywood actor I would defy those lame-brains and expose Mr. Obama's socialist nature before God and David Letterman. But alas, I am but a poor songwriter living in the sticks. We do what we can. I think you will find Obama No Merci Beaucoup hard hitting but fair. There are no cheap-shots. The lyrics are based on actual statements he has made, actions he has taken, and his published agenda. Pass it on to your conservative friends to rally them and any libs you may know to throw them off their game a bit. Download it, burn copies if you like, learn it and sing it. If we succeed in securing Mr Obama's defeat in November, we'll dance to it. Your most humble servant, Poor James

OBAMA, NO MERCI BEAUCOUP...

He never met a tax he didnt like.
Hes got crazy friends like Rev. Wright.
Hed rather give away the farm than fight.
No merci beaucoup.

Obama, no merci beaucoup,
Obama, no merci beaucoup,
Obama, no merci beaucoup,
No merci beaucoup.

He thinks oil should be against the law.
He runs down America.
Hes ashamed of his own Grandma.
No merci beaucoup.

Hey you good people that work all day,
hes got plans to dock your pay,
and let his unemployed voters go and ___ it away,
No merci beaucoup.



What you have to look for is the fundamental belief and character in a candidate that will predicate how his term will play out. McCain's tenure has been just that - of relentlessly trying to reign in government spending, etc. Obama in just his few short years has managed to compile the most liberal tax-n-spend voting record in all of Congress.

I AM saying this country needs a Balanced Budget Amendment, no matter who is POTUS. Unfortunately, Obama does not support such an amendment. With the present mentality of Congress (both parties) spending has to be reigned in, or you will see further loss of service, loss of entitlements and our children will have to pay for the burden through even more taxation for generations to come yet.

I am not for war, certainly not. But, it is, unfortunately, right now what it is! I didn't say I agreed with it, etc; but, we can not just cart blanche pull out of these areas either. I am for leaving with as much prudence as possible. Additionally, I am all for significantly cutting aid to foreign countries, especially when we ourselves are borrowing money! Obama is not the answer to any of those things, and neither is McCain or any POTUS until we get a Balanced Budget Amendment. Obama is going to raise taxes and grow government. McCain is not for raising taxes at all and reducing government. In fact, he has pledged to put a freeze on government spending until corrective measures can be taken.

The solution to our problems is NOT bigger and more government! However, a Balanced Budget Amendment is definitely a solution. Hopefully, that one thing will emerge, a Balanced Budget Amendment, as demanded from constituents and America will begin to get its house in order!



I think Fred Thompson sums it all up pretty plainfully!



Why American Freedom is in its Eleventh Hour

A well-known self-destructive cycle of democratic behavior has been attributed to an eighteenth century historian by the name of Alexander Tytler. Whether Tytler is the original author or not, the concept of democratic self-destruction has been proven accurate, right here in America.

“From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage.”

The cycle identifies eight stages of a process which demonstrates exactly how history tends to repeat itself. America finds itself in the seventh stage as it heads into the 2008 election, where it will decide whether or not to leap headlong into stage eight.

The birth of FREE markets....

By: moonlightcowboy, 1:47 AM GMT on October 23, 2008



...isn't this really the problem? Or the solution?;P


This still soooooo chaps my saddle sores!!!

I can NOT b e l i e v e Paulson has been allowed to do this! Burns my butt big time that this SOB is still Secretary of the Treasury! See this VIDEO LINK - Where'd the money go?

Why America Needs A Balanced Budget - Daniel J. Mitchell. This article was written in 1993 when the National Debt was only $3.2 trillion since the Revolutionary War. Today, the National Debt is officially around $13 trillion, increasing four-fold in a mere short 15 years. Additionally, when one considers that the US government is now obligating the taxpayers for the bad mortgage securities this figure is now more like $20 trillion. This should be complete evidence as to why a balance budget amendment should be required.

When all the dust and smoke of the election clears, and when all the rhetoric is quickly forgotten - there will be two things painfully clear and still remaining: 1. $13-20 trillion of National Debt; 2. And, a Democratically-controlled Congress that does not comprehend the notion of spending limitations. That is a recipe for disaster for the Country and for our children for generations to come. Additionally, the Democrats NEED ONLY ONE SEAT from one of three states, MS-KY-GA, and the US Senate will become "filibuster proof." That means that they will be able to pass any legislation they desire without "interuption" or delay from any voices opposed to the legislation. Combine that with the free-spending, goverment-program mindset of Obama as president and the results will be catastrophic, or finally terminal!

I would have preferred to have had Ron Paul with his studied and passionate wisdom on this subject, but he will not be elected, despite a great number that will write his name on the ballot. I regret that, but it is the way it is. For that reason, and I consider it the most serious of any of the issues we face as a free Nation, I am voting for McCain who has shown considerable substance and has a verifiable record that demonstrates a belief in controlling the size and spending of government. Obama, though somewhat rhetorically gifted with a few good ideas and has energized many youth, does not support this cause, has demonstrated a very liberal spending belief, and therefore is complicit in exponentially growing government. And, this is exactly what we do not need.

BBA must happen!

By: moonlightcowboy, 7:55 PM GMT on October 19, 2008



THIS ELECTION YEAR is NOT about a new charismatic face or electing a POTUS that the world will simply "like" better. It is NOT about whether your taxes are going to be raised because they will! They will have to be in order to pay for the near $20 trillion national debt! What we can not have is government growing even larger than the exponential growth that has occurred over the past 20 years.

The USA is BANKRUPT, leveraged to the hilt for many years. This financial crisis generated by our corrupt, greedy so-called "public servants" is causing problems throughout the world. It's causing problems everywhere and the poor will be the hardest hit with an even more demanding burden on the hard-working, tax-paying middle class. Private aid is drying up across the globe as many generous philanthropists have been hit hard financially. Yet, the US is continuing to "throw" money (that we don't have) at this problem much in the same fashion that led to the Great Depression. Our officials simply "don't get it!" Our GOVERNMENT MUST BE REELED BACK IN to even begin to get a handle on this mess we find ourselves in now. The answer is not more, bigger government! This country and the media should've listened to and practiced what Ronald Reagan knew from his heart and that which Ron Paul has been recapitulating continuously, but only few have been listening!

Government has become a monstrous, tax-n-spend, recapitulating, regenerating, self-serving, over indulgent, broadly and openly wasteful, constituent-disprespecting, burden-saddling for generations, social-security robbing, fat-cat and back-slapping, underhanded deal-making, pathetic dis-functional hoard of lustful, narcissus, omniscience, power hungry, get rich politicians who no longer serve the interests or the will of the people! (Are we clear on this?)

My grandmother always used to say "believe half of what you see and none of what you hear!" - good advice! So, I can assure you that what you are hearing may all sound very good, but is far less likely to become a "result." These new talks of "energy independence" all sound very good and certainly is the direction we need to go; however, I will assure you that this will NOT happen overnight, years or even in a few decades - especially considering that we are so heavily dependent upon mid-east oil to drive our economy. What you are hearing sounds really good - it's a great soundbite for campaigns; but, that's really all it is. This will take a very long time. There will be more cloaking and diversion that will come with even more federal bureaucracy and more wasteful, good-ole boy spending of tax dollars. We will get there, eventually, but the machine that is going to drive that movement has to be fixed first and foremost. Otherwise, it will forever be doomed to failure. Spending must be controlled! These types of campaigns aren't new! LOL, it's been going on for decades. Do you think it was just a "coincident" that oil shot up during a presidential campaign? These are all simply tactics to manipulate and sway elections, to play on your emotions as well as your pocketbook.

Good change happens gradually. There are NO instant fixes. If Obama is elected don't expect your world to suddenly become brighter and more enriched - it wont! Neither will it with McCain. It just won't happen! Neither candidate on their very best day, remotely, has that much power. Don't get trapped in these soundbites which are meant to appeal to the "emotional" and "un-engaged" populace masses. Instead, look to the truth of what we know has to happen first - government can not be made more responsible by holding it less accountable. It can not spend less by continuing to tax more. It can not get smaller by growing larger. It can not serve others by serving itself.

When things have gotten way out of line from the forward, wise and soulful thinking of the populace we have had to amend our constitution. We are at that pinnacle once again - we need and must require a Balanced Budget Amendment! Before this country can ever really move forward we must demand responsibility from our leaders who levy and thoughtlessly, freely and wastefully spend our money.

MAJOR COMPONENTS of the FY2008 BUDGET:

Spending in FY2008's $2.9 trillion budget
Non-discretionary spending:
$610 billion (21%) Social Security payments
$602 billion (21%) Medicare/Medicaid/SCHIP payments
$244 billion ( 8%) interest on the National Debt
$302 billion (10%) other ‘mandatory’ payments Discretionary spending:
$550 billion (19%) national defense
$392 billion (14%) other ‘discretionary spending’
$192 billion ( 7%) War on Terror ‘supplemental spending’

Federal Revenue Sources
$1,220 billion (42%) individual income taxes
$910 billion (31%) social insurance (FICA)
$345 billion (12%) corporate income taxes
$171 billion ( 6%) other taxes & duties
$246 billion (9%) budget deficit


McCAIN supports a Balanced Budget Amendment.
OBAMA does not support a Balanced Budget Amendment.

Why America Needs A Balanced Budget - Daniel J. Mitchell. This article was written in 1993 when the National Debt was only $3.2 trillion since the Revolutionary War.

The Crown calls for summit

By: moonlightcowboy, 2:07 PM GMT on October 15, 2008

Britain calls for global finance summit

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -- British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling for global talks this year to reform the world's financial system.

He says a global summit could be held in the next few months despite lack of agreement among international leaders that they need to hold a summit on the financial crisis.

Brown said earlier Wednesday that the European Union, the United States and others should reform the International Monetary Fund and create better international rules governing financial markets.

The British premier has long called for the Washington-based IMF to monitor global markets to prevent crises.

Sorely missed...........

By: moonlightcowboy, 8:49 PM GMT on October 14, 2008

Didn't realize just how much he's missed until I read and remembered some of the stuff he said...and stood for!



'Here's my strategy on the Cold War: We win, they lose '- Ronald Reagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' - Ronald Reagan

'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.' - Ronald Reagan

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.'
- Ronald Reagan

'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S! . Congress.' - Ronald Reagan

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.'
- Ronald Reagan

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.'
- Ronald Reagan

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.' - Ronald Reagan

'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.' - Ronald Reagan

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases : If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.' - Ronald Reagan

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.' - Ronald Reagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.'- Ronald Reagan

'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.'
- Ronald Reagan






This country is bankrupt, leveraged to the hilt for years. Government must be reeled back in to even begin to get a handle on this mess we find ourselves in now. One thing is for sure the answer is not more, bigger government! This country and the media should've listened and practiced what Ronald Reagan knew from his heart.

Lil Bull Tuesday! Elite correction? Or is stability coming up for air?

By: moonlightcowboy, 4:17 AM GMT on October 07, 2008

...biggest one day gain! The bull showed off today! That's some good news I guess. Let's see what it does to the rest of the sectors. Unfortunately, I still feel pretty sick about the prospect of corporate bailouts at the expense of Average Joe taxpayer...he/she never gets a break; and, it doesn't matter which party is in power!

Let's see if the bull keeps this up, or shows his hind quarters again! What's your take on what's going to happen? There's been some great posts here the past three weeks - thanks for your input! :)



Is the Bear done? With the kind of volatility we've been having, I wouldn't be surprised to hear the Bear scream so loud, that there's no doubt he's around!



This country is bankrupt, leveraged to the hilt for years. Either administration must reel government back in to even begin to get a handle on this mess. One thing is for sure the answer is not more, bigger government! This country and the media should've listened to Ron Paul!
