Misogynist Bill Clinton to endorse Maggie Hassan

Democrats and hypocrisy are nothing new but Maggie Hassan takes it to a new low with her announcement that Bill Clinton will be supporting her run for New Hampshire Governor on the Democrat ticket . There’s no doubt that Bill Clinton is a misogynist. His abuse of women with his power as a politician was clear throughout his career, including as President of the United States. No interns were safe from the predator-in-chief (note: Monica Lewinsky was just one of many according to the book ‘The Whistleblower’ by Marinka Peschmann). How is it that women who are Democrats can continually hold this man up as some type of ‘women’s rights’ hero after all that he has done to prove otherwise. A woman who claims to fight for women’s rights has one of the biggest misogynists in political history backing her and she believes that’s a good thing?

It’s not that Bill Clinton only had one case of ‘inappropriate behavior’, there were several. It’s not that ‘Slick Willy’ lied about his sexual affair with intern Monica Lewinsky; it’s that he abused his power. Apparently liberal women can ignore the fact that the man (using that term loosely) held the highest position in the United States and was married. What they cannot ignore is his continuous misogynistic behavior throughout his career and the abhorrent way in which he and his political machine sought to destroy any woman who tried to tell the truth about it. How any woman can support such a man in general is questionable but the fact that they seek his support at all shows how little they really care about women’s rights.

The hypocrisy of NH State Rep Chris Serlin

Recently there was a big brouhaha over Speaker O’Brien not allowing a couple of Concord Monitor reporters into a press conference due to the Monitor’s printing of a cartoon depicting O’Brien as a Nazi.  The event was an “invite only” one in which only those with invitations were welcome to the proceedings.  Democrats ripped O’Brien for “punishing” the reporters.  Apparently some representatives were conversing back and forth via email that they should rally around O’Brien’s decision.  Then an interesting thing happened, as reported in the miscellanyblue blog – Democrat Representative Chris Serlin added his two cents, chiding the representatives (you can see his full email here):

It’s incredible to watch this train wreck unfold. So many of you calling for the wagons to be circled around the Speaker for the Press has DARED to paint him in an unfavorable light in a cartoon. The HORROR!

If the Press “behaves” then they are afforded access. Oh how rich! As if the people and the Press work for us – or are our peers. What is this — a Banana Republic, where the politicians tell the press what they should and should not do?

We work for the people of New Hampshire, which includes the Press. There is nothing that the press or the citizens of NH owe us. We owe THEM. We owe it to them all to be just a wee bit less sensitive to any who may insult us. A cartoon — from May — really? How ridiculous.

Why is this interesting and completely hypocritical on Representative Serlin’s part?  For two reasons:  #1 – back April during the public lynching of George Zimmerman, Rep Serlin tried and convicted Zimmerman on Twitter.  Not very adult behavior and not very professional behavior for a New Hampshire Representative.  #2 – After this author published the article alerting the public to Serlin’s outrageous behavior; she was blocked by him on Twitter.  Yes the very same Representative who is chiding his colleagues in the above email also blocked a member of the Press and a citizen of NH over his own egregious behavior.

The outrageous salaries and payouts to public sector employees in Masschusetts

 

The Boston Herald posted a rather large list of the various payrolls, pensions and buyouts of public sector employees throughout Massachusetts.  This information is available to the public because it is the taxpayers who are footing the bill.   Public sector union contracts are also available to taxpayers for the very same reason.  Before reading this you may want to either mix a drink or take a blood pressure pill because if you are a hard-working taxpayer in Massachusetts you are going to be outraged by some of the egregious salaries, pensions and buybacks that Democrats have given to the unions.

Years ago Massachusetts was promised that once the Massachusetts Turnpike was paid for the tolls would be taken down.  Of course they weren’t and tolls have steadily risen.   Politicians and bureaucrats will blame it on one thing after another but one thing they never seem to take a good hard look at are salaries.  One Turnpike toll collector (yes a toll collector – the person who sits in the booth and takes your money and ticket and may have to give you change) made almost $100,000 with overtime in 2008.  You read that right.  A toll collector collected almost $100,000 in payment with your taxpayer dollars.  That is just the salary.  The amount does not include benefits or pension.  You’ll be paying that insane amount as well.

Can we really save America?

The more truth I find out about the federal government and the damage they have done to this country, the more I begin to wonder if we can really save America.  535 politicians – plus 1 in the White House and 9 members of the Supreme Court rule our country and frankly they have put us into quite the black hole.  I’m talking about both parties over many, many years.  This behemoth mess we call the United States government didn’t happen overnight and didn’t happen at the hands of just one party.  We have massive regulations, massive federal government programs, massive federal government workers, massive debt, massive deficit and no one seems to want to reel any of that it to straighten it out and get it under control.  Oh everyone likes to talk a good game about cutting spending and keeping taxes low but none of them really do it.  Bush cut taxes but not spending.  Obama is increasing taxes and has increased spending.  Everyone likes to talk about the Clinton surplus but that’s a myth.  Reagan accomplished many great things but he still didn’t cut massive federal departments like he said he would.  Forget Carter, that was just some type of Twilight Zone presidency.  Truth is that our federal government is wildly out of control and they could care less what we, the people think because they are no longer afraid of us and haven’t been  in decades.

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny” – Thomas Jefferson

We are a country of over 300 million people being ruled by only 545 men and women.  How in the hell did we allow them to turn this country into the ginormous federal government monster that it has become?  Americans hate monopolies but we allowed the federal government to become the biggest monopoly in the world.  We stood by and didn’t stop the insanity while it was happening.  We didn’t do anything when they took away little bits and pieces of our freedoms or asked for more taxes or fees to redistribute to others.  A little at a time, the federal government has eroded America and Americans.  Only 51% of people pay federal income taxes in this country.  That is absolute insanity!  51% of the people in this country pay for the entire federal budget which includes foreign aid, cushy pensions for federal workers, freebies for the slackers who refuse to work and keep having more babies, illegal aliens to have babies and be educated, a public education system that is worse than pathetic, free medical care for some people and the greatest military on Earth that is sent all over the world but not protecting our own borders.  I could go on and on about the ridiculous things that only 51% of the taxpayers in this country pay for but you either already know or you get the point.  We have become a society of sloths.  Whether we are the hard-working sloths who pay the bills or the sloths who just lay around all day, that is what we’ve become.

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” – Abraham Lincoln

The big federal government growth and state dependency on the feds started under the worst president in the history of this country – Franklin Delano Roosevelt.   It was FDR who put the first giant federal entitlement program into place.   It was FDR who started handing out federal dollars to states, with strings attached of course.  Before FDR, people and states took care of themselves and each other no matter how bad times got.  The federal government has done nothing but grow and grow and grow ever since.  Why didn’t anyone stop it?  Why did Americans fall so far from what America’s Founding Fathers fought so hard to create?  There are a million reasons that I can come up with as excuses but none of them are ‘excusable’.  Americans lost their way many years ago and we still haven’t found the way back.  Oh sure there are a ton of people who are waking up and fighting back.  The Tea Parties, conservative organizations, Independent organizations and conservative activists are all fighting for the truth and to seek the changes that need to be made but will it work?  These people represent a very small portion of the 300 million people in the United States.  We must reach the entire country in order to install real change before it’s too late.  Can we do it?

 

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” – Thomas Jefferson

 

How many people do you know who don’t vote?  How many people do you know who have zero clue who Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner or Harry Reid are?  How many people do you know who simply watch the 3 main ‘news’ stations – ABC, NBC and CBS for their ‘news’?  We have allowed the mainstream media to control the message to Americans that big government is good; small government is bad.  Lots of spending is good; little spending is bad.  Democrats are good; Republicans are bad.  These people couldn’t wipe their own asses properly if their lives depended on it and they control America’s messaging.  We have kids graduating high school who can’t read or do basic math – they are our future.  We spend billions on public education every year and we have one of the worst records on education in the world.  We have unions continually bullying states for more benefits, higher salaries and less work ethic which causes higher taxes and poor services for the people who are footing the bill.   We have a federal government that has program after program overlap in which none of them know what the hell the other is doing but they’re all getting great salaries and cushy benefits thanks to taxpayer’s hard-earned dollars.  And still  no one does anything to stop the insanity.  We are controlled by 545 men and women who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.  Yes there are a few who seem to genuinely want to fix this very broken system but they can never accomplish that without the rest of the yahoos that are in Congress.

 

“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Thomas Paine

There are a few million people out of the over 300 million in this country who want to fight to break the big government chains that oppress us.  Can we do it?  Have we lost everything because of the millions who would rather sit back and get something for nothing?  Can we do it without the people who care but don’t bother to fight?  As an Independent I have never been a fan of either party nor a fan of the 2 party system but we are stuck with it for now.  The only chance in hell we have of shrinking the government is to force one of the parties to create real changes that put government back in the people’s hands.  Are we so far gone that it’s impossible?  Have we lost everything because so many people were busy living their lives just trying to fight for their American Dream by working hard?  Do we have enough people who love America that they are willing to give up a few hours of their week to inform others of the truth and reason with people as to why big government only hurts Americans?  Frankly I don’t know if they will or we can.  I would bet money that many of you have been able to inform others and change the way they see things.  Think about how well that would work if we had a domino effect.  This isn’t about Democrats and Republicans.  This isn’t about the 545 people who rule this country.  This is about we, the people.  This is about taking back control of the government so that they once again fear us.  This is about fighting tyranny for liberty.  Can we really save America?

“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature…. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation … it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”James Garfield, the twentieth president of the United States, 1877


Obama’s Economic “war on women” continues

 

According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistic numbers published today, there are now 780,000 women collecting unemployment.  That number continues to rise with no end in sight.  Obama’s economic policies continue to fail and are continuing to hurt women.  There are more women out of the workforce than there were when Obama took office and that number keeps growing as well.  Unemployment for women is at 8% (in Bush’s last month in office it was only at 6.5%).  It’s clear that Obama’s economic “war on women” continues.

The participation percentage rate of women over 16 years old in the workforce is at one of its all-time lows.  The other all-time low since before 2002 was also during Obama’s reign.  It’s currently at 57.8%; the low under Obama was 57.6%.  This means that only 57.8% of women are participating in the workforce out of the 100% that could.  A number even more startling is the fact that almost 4 million women are out of the workforce since Obama took office.  These are women who could be working but are not and are not collecting unemployment.
