oh dearie me, FACTS again? tsk tsk. know..the Moronically Stupid Media seems to have this little problem presenting FACTS. They give credit and blame where it for most part..isn't due. Rachel Maddow..foaming leftist attack twit last night credited Bill Clinton with having budget surpluses. Sadly what she FAILS to mention is that the CONGRESS was a Republican controlled one, thereby able to keep a leash on his stupidities. Remember one thing children if you remember nothing else..The HOUSE of REPRESENTATIVES controls the purse strings.
"After a failed attempt at health care reform, Republicans won control of the House of Representatives in 1994, for the first time in forty years."
Don't get me wrong..if I'd known ol Bill in a personal friendship kind of way, I'd have probably been fond of him personally. His policies

Now look at the link I just posted. It claims the republicans were the worst but I'm going to take that premise, turn it upside down and shove it up their liberal asses sideways..without the benefit of lube.
Lets look at the numbers shall we?
Reagan took over in 81 the national debt at the time[left by Carter] $1,028,729,000,000. When he did his last year in 88 it was$2,684,392,000,000. a difference of $1,655,663,000,000 spread out over 8 YEARS!
The 97th [81-82] congress had a Republican Senate and a Democratic House. Always remember children..the HOUSE controls the purse strings.
The 98th [83-84] Congress it flip flopped. Democrat Majority in the Senate and Republican in the House.
The 99th Congress [85-86] it flip flopped again Republicans in the Senate and Dems in the House
The 100th Congress [[87-88] was a Dem Majority in BOTH houses.

Now lets look at Bush Senior. Debt went from $2,952,994,000,000 in 89 to $4,177,009,000,000 a difference of $1,224,065,000,000 in 4 years. Not great but not bad either. Now lets look at the congresses he had to work with.
The 101st Congress[89-90] Democrats controlled both houses
The 102nd Congress [91-92] Dem Majority in BOTH houses.

Now for the oh so idyllic Clinton years. Yes lets look at that shall we? Debt went from $4,535,687,054,406 in 93 to $5,662,216,013,697 a difference of...$1,126,528,959,291. Okay okay so he had the better of the 1st 2 in how much he grew the debt. But again..let us look at the congresses.
The 103rd Congress [93-94] Dem Majority in BOTH houses
The 104th Congress [95-96] Republican Majority in BOTH houses. I'd guess the people were a little pissed about the spending spree, no?
The 105th Congress [97-98] Republican Majority in Both Houses
The 106th Congress [99-2000] Republican Majority in Both houses
Does anyone see a pattern here? Now none of these save Bush Senior had to fight an actual HOT war and that was a bloody short one on ONE front.

Lets move on shall we? Who is next? Oh yeah..Bush Jr. Now remember come the end of 2001 we got nailed by a lovely bunch of people called Al Queda. Islamic Terrorists from the Middle East who flew 2 planes into the Twin Towers, Tried to fly one to the White House and dropped another small one on the Pentagon..all within the matter of a few VERY short hours.

His debt went from $5,943,438,563,436 in 2001 to $10,699,804,864,612. A difference of $4,756,366,301,176 in 8yrs. A debt driven up while fighting a war not on ONE front but by the middle of the war, 3 fronts. *headscratch*

Which is kind of insane I know but when the target your hunting and killing keeps changing have to track, locate, confirm identity and then kill em all over again. Islamic terrorist are like think you've killed the fuckers and they pop up somewhere else. It's annoying as all hell to me. Frankly I'm surprised Bush Jr didn't pull his hair out in frustration.
Anyway lets look at the Congresses he had to deal with over the years shall we?
the 107th Congress[2001-2002] He had a fairly even split in the Senate and a Republican controlled house.
The 108th Congress [2003-2004] Republican Majority in both houses.
The 109th Congress [2005-2006] Republican Majority in both houses.
The 110th Congress [2007-2008] Democrat Majority. Nancy Pelosi took the gavel.

Now on to Obama..the Annointed One, The 2nd Coming of Christ himself according to some liberal twit..most notably in the beginning by Chrissy" it just sends a tingle up my leg" Matthews. Jeeebus Matthews..go jerk yourself off to a picture of Obama already and come back to your desk afterwords after you've gained some control for fuck sake. damn.!
Anyway..Obama went from $12,311,349,677,512 in 2009 to $14,025,215,218,709 in 2010 a difference of $1,713,865,540,567.
His congresses?
The 111th Congress [2009-2010] Democrats controlled both houses
The 112th Congress [2011-2012forthcoming] Dem controlled Senate Republican Controlled house.

Now what I have done is simply calculate the differences between the debt at the end of their 1st year versus the end of their last. Now to be more accurate you'd really have to take the debt at the end of the previous presidents term and subtract the end of the current presidents term sooo..Obama was given a debt to work with at the end of Bush Jr's presidency of $10,699,804,864,612 and at the end of Obama's 2nd year, last year it was up to.. $14,025,215,218,709 a difference of..$3,325,410,354,097..the debt clock is CURRENTLY up to $14,493,920,800,000 this very second. which is a difference of $3,794,115,935,388 just under $4 TRILLION dollars in Just under 3 years. *headshake* fuck me sideways if that don't blow my mind.

*I can hear the screaming now* For crying out loud YES, part of that is the now winding down, almost done war [according to who? does NO ONE on his staff and among his advisors READ and COMPREHEND military and middle eastern history for fuck sake? jesus jumpin h christ!] but a lot of it has to do with his own spending. Stimulus bills 2 and 3, the government takeover of General Motors [what the hell else do you call it when the government owns 1/3 of a private company?] etc etc.

Oh and unemployment rates? They went from being steady around 5-5.5% during the Bush years and have rocketed to at last count 9.2% currently during the current administration. ain't that funny? No? I don't think so either.

Edit 9/14/11 the debt added between the time Obama took off and right now? $4,024,297,135,388. and in the time it's taken me to type this it's gone up another $5 million.

That is all. I now return you to your regularly scheduled inanity and insanity.

Change the National Anthem?

That is something I hear from time to time over the years. Most recently I read it in an article in the Parade magazine section of the local Sunday paper. Those who want it changed, want it changed from The Star Spangled Banner[henceforth to be referred to as Our National Anthem], to America the Beautiful[henceforth to be referred to as AtB]. They are both beautiful songs I'm not arguing that. of the reasons that some want to change from our National Anthem to AtB they say is that AtB is easier for people and performers to sing than Our National Anthem. Lets look at this somewhat spurious argument shall we? When we hear Our National Anthem at special events and sporting events what he hear is this:
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Most entertainers/singers problem with this song is that they're self aggrandizing, self absorbed retards, who just can't help but try to put their own personal twist on a song that is not meant to be fucked with in that way. If they'd sing it the way it's meant to be sung, simply, there would be no problem.

Now here is what you hear when you hear America the Beautiful at some events:
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

Okay it might be a little shorter but it's the same amount of LINES. 8 lines. Now the lines of Our National Anthem are a couple words longer per, but it's 8 simple fucking lines! How hard is it to memorize 8 lines that should have been burned into your brain from CHILDHOOD! Especially if you started out performing at a young age! In that case then I'm sorry but you've got no excuse for flubbing 8 lines. [As did Christina Aguilera recently] Now..want to know a really interesting factoid that[I suspect] MOST people DON'T know? When you hear those 8 are NOT hearing the entire song .... EITHER of them.

What?! You thought a song was only going to be the same 8 lines over and over again? *facepalm, sigh* Lord give me strength. Here:

Go forth and read the entirety of both poems. Basically to me..they can complain about one song or the other being more difficult to sing..when they sing ALL of the stanzas for BOTH songs consistently at special and sporting events..not before. Til that day..shut the hell up and sit the hell down.

Another reason I've heard for a changeis that Our National Anthem is 'about the War of 1812 which most people don't know or care about anyway, and that America the Beautiful more accurately reflects America'............................................................


That quote is an almost direct quote from the article I read on Sunday. My response to the quotee for the first part of his statement is..
Well whose fault is that you ignorant, self absorbed ASS?!

Oh and that quote is a generalization. What Our National Anthem is specifically about is the sight of the American Flag, still hanging and waving in the breeze after the Royal Navy bombardment of Fort McHenry in 1814. The sight of Old Glory still waving in the breeze over the fort, instead of being struck down as a sign of surrender was what inspired him to pen a poem entitled "In Defense of Fort McHenry". Which is what Our National Anthem was originally called. See.. old Francis Scott well he was THERE. He was held prisoner on a British Naval ship temporarily when he went to get ...the name of someone whose name escapes me at the moment's release from the British.

So therefore in response to the question 'should we change Our National Anthem from The Star Spangled Banner to America the Beautiful?' I say..
I don't think so junior. *snort*

I worry and wonder

I see posts by fellow bloggers of Black punks rampaging in groups of anywhere from 20-100 of them, attacking anyone white who gets in their way, ransacking stores and stealing thousands and thousands of dollars worth of merchandise before running off, going into food establishments and abusing the patrons before running off laughing. Yes you might here stories about this stuff going on but one of the things you'll never seem to hear from the Massively Shitbrained Media is that the groups of punks are ALL black. One of the most recent the other day happened in the Philly area and the ones they did arrest ranged in age from 11[!!!] to 19. By and large there are very few arrests made in these cases that I'm hearing about. So whats going on? must be that Hope and Change, Obama promised.
Here are a few examples as found by a fellow blogger.

Then I hear stories out of England:

that make me think of some of the crap our OWN government will pull, hell are already pulling using 'Eminent domain" as an excuse if we let them and don't bring them to heel.

Right now we have a President who in his speech yesterday, took a congress to task for not being in town enough to do their jobs while he's had to be there for all the tough decisions and is"always here". Yet after that speech where is he? and where is the congress? WEll HE is ensconced at Camp David for the holiday. Congress's various members couldn't get on planes to get out of town fast enough!
