We’ve been quiet here for quite some time. Our last post was more than a month ago.
The reason is simple. We believe that the the cast has hardened. And what we are seeing is more and more heat and less and less light. We find it boring, and we have other things to do.
We know how we are voting.
While everyone here at O-t-c is registered as Independent, we will be voting nearly straight Republican line, unless we believe that an Independent who is truly conservative has a real chance of winning. We would love nothing better than to have conservative Independents win. But they have a job to do: they have to make a very strong showing in the polls. If they can’t do that, then they haven’t closed the deal with the voters, and we’re hanged if we’re going to let Democrats have another chance to control things without a fight.
We want Democrats – and liberals everywhere – to have sleepless nights. We want them to worry about life. We have gone, ad nauseum, into the reasons why. Those reasons have neither changed, nor do they need any updating.
As a matter of fairness (which the Left knows nothing about): We watched much of Obama’s news conference yesterday regarding the disaster south of Louisiana in the Gulf. We believe he acquitted himself well during this conference. We say to him this: what a shame. What a shame that you didn’t act like this with respect to the banking and credit crisis. What a shame you didn’t act like this with respect to the health insurance deformations you’ve inflicted on this country. In THIS disaster you seem to be doing some of the right things; and you haven’t demonized BP. Why couldn’t you do that during the fiscal disasters of last year? Why couldn’t you do that when you were nationalizing automobile companies?
If you had been Presidential with the other problems this country faced and faces, we would have felt no need to start Off-the-cliff.com in the first place!
What a shame, Mr. President. A dirty rotten shame.
We have been quietly watching the Messiah-Wicked-Witchofthe-West-Mortician monster that is trying to ram socialism (in the form of health care deformation) down the throats of We the People. We view this as Government Abuse, and we believe that Obama, Pelosi, and Reid should be taken up to the Washington Memorial, and forced to read, publicly, the Declaration of Independence and the entire United States Constitution two thousand times. Why 2000? One time for each page of the monstrosity they want to force down our throats. When Pelosi speaks, some kind of voice alteration device should be fitted to the microphone so we don’t have to actually hear her in her own god-awful voice.
The Messiah said, at the end of the Health Care Water Torture Session that if the Ds and Rs couldn’t come to an agreement (i.e., if the Rs wouldn’t agree with him), then that’s what elections are for.
All we can say is this: Bring it on, Mr. President. You are the most abysmal excuse for a President we have EVER seen. We think we could probably swap in Hugo Chavez for you and no one would notice any difference from a policy and rhetoric perspective. You have, to date, been responsible for the conversions of 6 people we know who proudly called themselves liberal when you started, who now call themselves Independent – and it’s all because of you and your Witch, Pelosi.
We do not believe it when the lamestream media calls this an anti-incumbent season. But we hope YOU believe it. We hope that you go, excuse the phrase, Off-the-Cliff with your health deform boondoggle. We especially hope you try for the reconciliation tactic. Ple-e-e-ease, Mr. President. Do it. We need as much anger out in the heartland as you can generate. The more the better. And as long as the health deformation effort doesn’t actually get through the House, we will be thrilled to have you go for it.
And tell your friend the Wicked Witch of the West to keep up with the sour potty mouth drivel that she seems to revel in. As she talks about “itsy bitsy spiders,” we can’t help but think of the old movie, “The Fly,” when at the end of the movie, the fly with a human head (that would be the Wicked Witch) is screaming “Help me. Hel-l-l-p me,” as a spider comes bearing down on it. Come November, the American People are going to be spiders to all the flies in the Democrat party.
November cannot come too soon.
Today you destroyed billions of dollars in holdings with your efforts to demonize bankers and Wall Street investors – yet again. The DOW was down more than 200 points – the second day in a row – after the second day in a row that you started with your meddling again.
Now that you can no longer blast the insurance companies and Big Phram because you got your butt kicked in Massachusetts, you’re looking for a new boogie man, and you’ve settled on the investor class again.
Are you really that evil or that stupid, Mr. President? Have you learned nothing from your whoopin’ in Massachusetts? We the People are on to you. We see through your lunatic, narcissistic ideas, and we’re sick of them.
You said you were against torture. So why are you torturing us?
Of course, if you keep it going, We the People will give you many more Republicans and some Independents to work with come November. We only wish that it was now – right now – the day of the November 2010 election.
From Politico: “As election returns came in Tuesday night, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) said it’s clear that voters wanted “a whipping boy” for all the lost jobs and foreclosed homes.” – http://bit.ly/8Zej70
We so hope that all Democrats are as stupid as this about the meaning of Brown’s win last night.
This isn’t about jobs and foreclosures. It’s about the kind of government we have; whether it’s a government responsive to WE THE PEOPLE!
Kennedy’s style of reasoning is precisely the kind that comes from not having held down a real job or being a real boss with real employees. It is a public-sector-is-all-I-know mentality. So let us break it to ya’, Mr. Kennedy, not that you would listen to Independents who would have braved snow and sleet to vote for Brown if we were Massachusetts residents.
The thing is – you can’t show the massive disrespect toward We the People and not pay for it at the polls. Obama was put into office by We the People (though not by those of us at O-t-c) on the basis that (a) he wasn’t George W. Bush, (b) that he would have a transparent government, (c) that he would change the tone in Washington (much as George W. Bush promised in his first run for the Presidency), and (d) that he would be the People’s President.
Instead, what did we get? We got a President who stood silent while the Wicked Witch of the West called us astro-turf and Nazis. He rammed through legislation – against We the People’s preferences, made known in poll after poll after poll (which the President has acknowledged that he reads), and he tried to ram through his Health Deformity Legislation before the August 2009 break – remember that?
When We the People rose up and took to holding tea parties (emblems of liberty and disgust with tyranny), We were called teabaggers – apparently a sexually derogatory word. Efforts by the Democrats and the Lame Stream Media to marginalize our voices were intensified; again with ridicule and disrespect.
Independents – including us at O-t-c – started out willing to give President Obama a chance to do things right. He had a historic opportunity. After all, he was the first darker-skinned President (like skin color matters at all in terms of qualifications) we’ve had in this country. He had a chance to be as transparent as he said he’d be. He could have brought in Cabinet and Czars who were centrist instead of Marxist.
But no – he sided with Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Mao – instead of with America. And America gave him his hat.
This November, we’re going to give him his coat.
And in November 2012, we’re going to kick him out of the White House and get it fumigated so that a patriot can live there instead of a man who wouldn’t know Americana or American patriotism if his life depended on it. And make no mistake – if it turns out that the patriot happens to have darker colored skin – we at O-t-c will vote for him or her. We want someone we can respect – not someone who has a politically correct hyphen.
So – go ahead, Mr. Kennedy. Belch steam and smoke as hard as you can. Try to misdirect as much as you can. We the People are on to you now. We’re awake and we’re going to see this through to the end.
And once we’ve secured our nation for ourselves and our posterity, maybe we can go to sleep again and become the sleeping giant that rises from its slumber when duty calls – as it did in 2009.
We look forward to the day we can retire this blog. That is a long ways off, but we think we see a light in the distance – a faint light, but a light nonetheless – at the end of this tunnel. And we think we can make out a sign illuminated by that light. Yes – it says, “Election 2012!”
As if we needed help to make our case.
So – it turns out that one of the major theses of so-called global warming was based on a speculation by a little-known scientist out of India followed by a series of so-called scientists playing the child’s game “telephone.” And on this flimsy bit of junk, American taxpayers were being boondoggled into Kyoto and Copenhagen efforts to send billions – if not trillions – of their hard earned dollars to other people who have not earned it!
If it were up to us, every single perpetrator of this fraud, and that’s what it was and is, should be locked in jail for 10 years. We double down on our last entry.
Scientists – if scientists you be – owe American taxpayers a huge apology. You should make it this year. You should be glad that we don’t get out the tar and feathers, for you make Bernie Madoff look like a small time carnival barker playing the shell game for some cheap laughs.
Apologize – if you have the humanity and the decency to do so.
