During his Inaugural Speech Obama promised to create American jobs which could not be outsourced. Following the world-wide negative and angry response to the "Buy American" provision in the non-stimulus Stimulus Bill, President Obama responded, “I agree [with the EU] that we can’t send a protectionist message. I want to see what kind of language we can work on this issue. I think it would be a mistake…for us to start sending a message that somehow we’re just looking after ourselves and not concerned with world trade.” Then why, I ask, did he voice this plan in his Inaugural or approve this provision in the Stimulus bill? And doesn't it make you proud to think that some of the money you gave to the auto dealers is slated to upgrade and maintain one auto company's business in Brazil - in order to keep the entire company from bankruptcy?

Vladimir Lenin , in his famous book What Is To Be Done? declared that revolutionary consciousness” is required to overthrow the capitalist system, necessitating a “vanguard” of socialist intellectuals like Lenin and Trotsky in order to instill the proper “consciousness” into the mentally challenged masses. Lenin, like President Obama it seems, claimed “I won”, and would only entertain a certain “politically correct” form of bipartisanship. Basically, Obama will listen to his detractors and then demand it will be done his way.

The White House has proposed that the director of the Census, a Commerce Department employee, report to the White House. The White House contends this is no big deal. This gives our new President the power to affect not only how many congressional seats there will be and to whom they will go, but it will determine the outcome of the Electoral College as well as the allocation of federal funds. Since in our Constitution this task is specifically given to the Commerce Department, it seems to be unconstitutional. A Canadian paper's columnist is quoted as writing, "These people are beyond power hungry. Do we dare say......EVIL?" Rahm Emanuel should not be given this power to steal elections!

David Ogden, Obama's pick to be deputy Attorney General, and to be in charge of pornography laws, has been a lawyer for pornographers and abortion advocates, saying that abortion is better than childbirth and no parental notification should be required!

A National Coordinator of Health Information Technology is a position hidden in the Stimulus Bill. It is based on the Remove Formatting from selectionsuggestions presented in Tom Daschel's book Critical: What We Can Do About The American Health-Care Crisis. It specifies, in Tom's words, that doctors should "act less as solo practitioners" and more as part of a team. Part of the cost-cutting guidelines include getting government permission for procedures and making sure that old people forgo care and just learn to live with the effects of old age. Doctors will be bound to follow the rules or face penalties. I have to wonder if these rules will apply to OLD Senators and Representatives. Welcome to the world of healthcare rationing.....

By the way, the 40B dollar stimulus give-away to ACORN and other community organizers has been reinserted into the Stimulus package, basically giving a voter-fraud promoting section of our country the funds with which to steal further votes.

Harry Reid in 2007, along with 40 senators, signed a letter of condemnation of Rush Limbaugh, and now the Democrat Party has an online petition to condemn him. Obama has chosen to ridicule Rush and Sean Hannity, ala Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals, attempting to polarize them and weaken their power. Will he next reprise the despised Nixon Enemies List? It looks to me as if they all believe free speech can only be practiced by Democrats. It is a dangerous precedent, having the President of the United States make pronouncements against non-violent free speech in America. It makes me recall that the governments of China and Russia control speech in their countries, even imprisoning those who disagree with the government....

President Bush
was vindicated by the Supreme Court just prior to Obama's Inaugural, regarding his "federal wiretaps w/o a judge's approval". It has been declared to be both legal and constitutional. Bush was treating our enemies as the terrorists they are, not as US citizens who have the right to go thru our court system, and he thereby protected classified information as well as US citizens.

Congress will consider legislation to extend some of the curbs on executive pay that now will probably apply only to those banks receiving federal assistance. House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank said, "There’s deeply rooted anger on the part of the average American,” the Massachusetts Democrat said at a Washington news conference today. He said the compensation restrictions would apply to all financial institutions and might be extended to include all U.S. companies. High paying, experienced, job-providing executives will either take a job in a foreign company, retire, or start a company overseas. The money that they are now spending, which helps spur the economy, will stop. Perhaps they will have to default on their mortgages and other debts. No mention has been made to limit the salaries of sports stars, lawyers, nor movie or tv stars..... That's just great! And our government will then be making decisions FOR American companies. Perhaps they will place a government agent on the Board of Directors. Good-by, Capitalism.... Perhaps we could prevent our Senators and Representatives from raising THEIR salaries by $4700/yr. in a time of stated CATASTROPHE. No - probably not.....

Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow has declared that she wants Senate hearings on the anything-but-fair FAIRNESS DOCTRINE, an assault on conservative talk radio, saying we need "standards, fairness and responsibility". Isn't it interesting to learn that her husband Tom Athans has been Executive VP of AIR AMERICA, where "progressive" talk is produced for only 16hrs. per week (and then rerun) due to the fact that not enough people want to listen? They do have their opportunity. This is a blatant CONFLICT OF INTEREST for Stabenow. Liberal talking points, by the way, have nothing to do with the truth of what is being presented, and everything to do with the fact that progressives don't totally dominate radio as they clearly dominate print media and television. It clearly upsets the liberals that not enough people care to listen to progressive radio to keep it fully employed, while conservatives are learning far too much of the unprinted and unaired truth from their radios. Liberals have no plans, by the way, to rein in the ultra-liberal presence in newspapers and television. "They can't handle the truth" (presented by talk radio), to quote the famous line in the movie "A Few Good Men".

Considering the breathtaking speed with which President Barack Obama is moving to, in his own words "begin the work of REMAKING America", not simply improve it, we should all fear that before enough Americans wake up to what changes Obama is delivering, we will be living in an unrecognizable country.
It has been suggested by one columnist that undermining American's fundamental values seems to be Obama's most important goal, thus "remaking" America in the way he intended....
