My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?

Unions in America

Unions have been a part of the American work force for years. “Have they been good for America and the worker?” is the question I’d ask.

Let us look back at their history for the answer to our question. Does Eastern or Braniff airline ring a bell for anyone? Bet most, if not all young folks, out there do not recognize the names. They were very large and prosperous companies that employed thousands; but since being forced into bankruptcy by the unions, now employ “O” employees. And by the way, they made travel harder because of less seats, made those seats that remained more costly for the traveler, and now no taxes can be collected from employees wages or from the corporations themselves. Millions probably trillions of dollars lost over all these years. Does the word deficit come to mind?

While on the subject of airlines, does air traffic controllers spark any interest? Yes, years ago, they too decided to strike and all but ruined travel in the country and affected travel worldwide. But, we had a President then that didn’t just play basketball like our current one, but had a set of basketballs. Hope you’re not offended, but if you are SO BE IT! President Reagan stood fast and controlled the controllers.

The auto industry problem was a direct effect of the unions and their thugs as leaders. They are making near $80 an hour and trying to sell their products to people making $20 an hour. Do you see anything wrong with this picture? It would certainly make more “Common Sense” if the numbers were somewhat reversed.

Now, to today’s market and the NFL Officials Association (union),  who have messed up your football season. They wanted more money than the approximately $10K per game that they are currently being paid. They may well deserve a little more; but, the point of all this is to show you that they, the unions, do not care how much it inconveniences the public or their customers, they just want and care about themselves.

It is the same scenario with the government employees. They do not give a “hank” about anyone else or how they might inflict hardship on the people they supposedly serve. They and the politicians trade votes for benefits and retirement all the time and from one end of the laddar to the other. It is one of the most corrupt systems going today.

“Common Sense” says that if this is not resolved, it will ruin or bankrupt America and this Grand Ol Country will go the route of Eastern and Braniff airlines….Just a faint memory of a few wise old elders.


American Foreign Aid, A Real Joke!

Let’s make nice, give them $$$, and they will like us.

How do you like the way “American Foreign Aid” has helped us in the Middle East? Between giving them cash and trying to make nice, they hate us and want our heads.

President Obama started out apologizing; and it has only gotten more pronounced. He does not realize that they (the Muslim) see this as a weakness. All they do is con him and America into giving them aid; and then turn on us like a pack of wolves. Yes., that’s right, I said a pack of wolves, wild animals at best.

They have lived in that filthy culture so long that they have transformed into animals. Look at where and how they live. In Jerusalem, you can walk through the streets controlled by Israel were it is clean and productive looking, but the minute you cross over to the other side it is dirty.

We have for decades now supported the Arabs with foreign aid to no avail. It is time we make sure that Iran, Pakistan and all the other Arab countries get nukes. Yes, see that they all get nukes. All at once, at the same time, and delivered from the same type of planes–US AIR FORCE BOMBERS!!

Common Sense says “Quit funding them with foreign aid,” and they will “HATE US FOR FREE”!

Truth In Politics…A Rarity at Best!!!

The main stream “liars” , I am sorry that’s “media”, has discovered a tape of Governor Romney “telling the truth” and they perceive it as detrimental.

What he said was, and I para-phrase, that 47% of americans pay no income tax and are on some type of government assistance; so, he does not worry about trying to appeal to them for their vote. Folks, that is the truth, like it or not. It is published by the government itself. Most, if not all of that 47%, will only vote for Obama who wants to keep them in slavery to the piddle little that they get each month. Say what you will, but that is enslavement to the system and the democratic platform. Obama is the modern-day slave master and the government programs and the democratic party are the modern-day plantation.

Governor Romney and the Republicans are the party that wants to get you off of “barely getting by” through helping to put you to work at a good paying job and allowing you to go as far as your talents will carry you. Just think, you may become as rich as the richest in this country. If and when, you do accomplish that, Governor Romney, myself, and every Republican will stand and cheer for you. Heck, we will even cheer that you might become even richer.

Governor Romney also remarked that if he was hispanic, he would get more of the hispanic vote. Again, true as true can be. If he was hispanic, he would get somewhere in the 45% of that vote instead of the 8 to 12% he will probably get.

It is GREAT to finally have a politician tell you the TRUTH instead of all the lies we hear from the O’Liar!

Now let’s look at it from a Common Sense angle. Would you rather be a democrat and just “get by” on assistance or be a Republican and “shoot for the moon”?  Common Sense says shoot for the moon; and if you fall a little short, you will only be a millionaire instead of a multi-millionaire.

YOUR CHOICE FOLKS!!! Now go out and vote accordingly.

U.S. vs. Muslim Countries

Boy, am I going to offend a bunch of people taking on this topic.

America just had two attacks on two of her embassies: one in Egypt and one in Libya–both Muslim countries. Muslim countries that hate everything about us. Did you get that??? Get it through you thick liberal heads!! They HATE US!

This hatred goes back to Abraham, Sarah and Hagar and will never change. For you who do not know the story, here it is the “My Daddy’s Short Version”.  Abraham and Sarah, man and wife, were told that Sarah was barren. Abraham and Hagar, who was Sarah’s handmaid,  had a son named Ishmael. Eventually,  Sarah had a son Isaac. At which time, Sarah cast Hagar and Ishmael out into the desert. Hence, the division in the lineage (Ishmael is the Muslim lineage and Isaac is of Jewish lineage) and hatred ever since. GET IT?  It is irrational, I know, but it is what it is.

We give all these countries money and they still hate us. The day before the attacks, Egypt received approximately 1.5 Billion dollars in aid from the U.S.  As a reward for our generosity, our embassy was destroyed. Now, that makes a lot of “common sense” doesn’t it?

In 1941, a country snuck, up ‘like a thief in the night” and attacked us and we hit back hard and they gave up. By the way, they have not caused us a problem in all these years. In contrast, we have babied the Muslims, given in to demands, talked till we are blue in the face, and even given them financial support. And, they just keep “sticking their finger in our eye.”

Do you see the “Common Sense” approach yet?  Do them just like we did Japan, and they will not give us any problems for the next maybe 60 to 100 years.  I know this sounds harsh, but it “damn sure” worked before; and if we strike hard enough, it will work again.

By the way, the total aid given to Egypt from 2001 to 2010 is approximately 18 Billion. Let me see, I think our national debt could be paid off or at least lowered if not for our aid to the countries that HATE US!

Just Common Sense folks.

The Real Truth About the Demise of the Economy and Who Was at Fault!

Why did things go so bad at the end of Bush’s term?

The day the Democrats “took over” was not January 2009; it was actually January 2007. That is when the Democratic party took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress. The Democratic Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. (Americans messed up!)

For those of you who are listening to the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this:

January 3, 2007  was the day the Dems took over the Senate and the Congress. At that time: The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77. The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% and the unemployment was 4.6%.  And, George Bush’s economic policies had set a record of 52 straight months of job growth. These are facts…Dems read ’em and weep or maybe learn from your mistakes. (I don’t think you will because you are still singing the same tune today.)

Remember that Day….

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? Banking and Financial Services.

Unemployment…adding to this Crisis (among many other things) was the dumping of 5 to 6 Trillion Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from Fannie and Freddie fiascos!

Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie and Freddie, starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the U S Economy.

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie and Freddie?  OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? The DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS.

So when someone tries to blame Bush…..

Remember January 3rd, 2007 as THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that has controlled Congress (and the budgets) since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008, 2009, and 2010 and 2011.

In the first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush finally and somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases. However, in 2009, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barrack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budget.

And where was Barrack Obama during this time?

He was member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete the 2009 budget. (By the way, THE LAST BUDGET PASSED BY THIS ADMINISTRATION!!!)

If the Dems inherited any deficit at all, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, the Democrats in Congress had control of spending and the rest is history…HUGE DEFICITS,  AND A CREDIT RATING DOWNGRADE.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from his own Democratic Senators and Representatives led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. but don’t forget Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Frank Reams and Jimmy Johnson at Fanny and Freddie.

Common Sense says that you replace the ones theat were at fault– “THE DEMOCRATS’ !!! These are the real facts, forgotten by most, lied about by democrats, but facts are facts.

Isaac – A Bias Storm!!

“A Bias Storm?” you say, never heard of such a thing!

It must be true that there is a difference somewhere because of how the media reported on the storm.

Could it be a gender bias since this is a male named storm and Katrina was a nasty ol’ girl storm. “Common Sense” tells me that should not be the case. There has to be something because Issac’s damage rivals that of Katrina, as the media puts it.

Could it be racial, since not as many blacks were affected as in Katrina. Surely, that can’t be the case since the storm knows no color. OH, wait! They do know color because it was reported to be President Bush’s fault when that nasty girl storm hit and was reported at that time to have racial undertones.

This Isaac fellow breached levees and flooded as many homes as the Katrina bad girl. If that is true, then where is all the outrage from the media about that “good for nothing” President that did not even visit the area for almost a week? Let me think back: Wasn’t Bush a horrible person because he only flew over and then visited about a week later?

Now I can just hear you bias people saying how stupid I sound blaming President Obama. Well, if one storm was Bush’s fault, then it is only “Common Sense” that this one is Obama’s fault; but you hear nothing like that being reported. Why not?

For us to be a free and informed people, we must have an honest media that reports true facts and lets the people decide what is right and wrong besides what we have today–right and left. The bias media is contributing to the demise of our culture and the “American Way”.

Common Sense says this to be true and if you think otherwise you are part of the problem and you can take “a shot at the moon” or “kiss my grits” because I know I am right on this issue.
