Adam and Obama

So a man named Adam Albrett (also known as Muhannad Almahmoudi) has threatened Obama's life. Now as much as I deeply dislike Obama's policies, I whole-heartedly reject assassination.

In one of the many articles about this breaking news - Patent Attorney Arrested for Threatening President Obama - it is explained that Mr. Albrett is a patent attorney and CEO of Serenada. Lebanese-born, he came to the US and attended the University of Virginia's law school.

But this is not the first time Mr. Albrett has been unhappy with US policies. He is reported in this story back in 2003 in Electronic Iraq readers flood France with anti-war support as saying
That said, many of those who wrote have never read an article in this newspaper. They wrote in order to address French public opinion, a sort of letter in a bottle. One of them, Adam Albrett of Sunnyvale (California), states that he also wrote to "various organizations in the United States" calling for Jacques Chirac to be awarded the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize
. Basically, Mr. Albrett deeply supported Mr. Chirac's opposition to the Iraqi war. In itself not a sin by any means but one can only imagine his fury at Obama for his various drone attacks and his authorization of assassination of US citizens.

According to the Patent Prospector, Mr. Albrett wrote this "alleged message to the White House":
"THIS IS NOT A JOKE...Inform the FBI, CIA, U.S. Military and DOJ that I am going down to DC to blow the brains out of OBAMA unless he vacates the White House and I am going to shoot up the place and Rham [sic] if I see him... THIS IS NOT A JOKE...I am going to leave Mara at home with water and some food..."

Mr. Albrett's distaste for Obama is clear but he doesn't much like his adopted country either. In January 2009 he wrote a letter to Asia Times Online (scroll down) discussing Israel. It is not out of place for someone with Mr. Albrett's presumed background.
On some days I wish the US had succeeded in Iraq so that Mubarak and King Abdullah II of Jordan could be examples to the rest of the high price to be paid for toeing the line of US/Israeli influence. The price is nothing less than one's rule or crown. Go ahead and let Hamas sink (it won't), but don't complain when you are living out your last days like a kafkaesque cockroach and someone like [senior Fatah official] Mohammed Dahlan or one of his sons lords it over you and your people. Even if Hamas wins it doesn't mean that Arab leaders' authority is secure. The US and Israel will never stop trying to get someone like Dahlan, [Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad] Allawi or one of his sons in power, and their promises to the contrary are just lies that so deepen the pain when their treachery eventually strikes. As Nobel prize winner Bertrand Russell pointed out regarding the limits of inductive thinking, the hand that feeds the chicken every day is the same hand that twists its neck.
He is clearly an intelligent man who has been enraged by Obama's policies. The starting phrase "On some days" implies that on most days he wishes America had failed in Iraq and he ends with stating that the US and Israel's promises "are just lies" and they are planning "treachery".

This letter was written just as Obama was taking office. While Obama is certainly not pro-Israel, it is clear that Mr. Albrett was hoping for a lot more "change" than he got from Obama. He became profoundly disillusioned with Obama's policies and finally snapped.

Mr. Albrett is entitled to his opinions (which I disagree with) and he is entitled to be furious at Obama (which I am as well) but he can not threaten assassination. Period.

Boundlessness Must Go

This review of Never Enough: America’s Limitless Welfare State, by William Voegeli titled Insatiable Liberalism from The Claremont Institute's Fred Seigel discusses liberalism's origins in America and why its "boundlessness" must be bounded.
Liberalism's most acute critics such as University of Virginia political scientist James Ceaser emphasize the centrality of crises, real or manufactured, in expanding the size and reach of the liberal state (as in the recent case of the supposedly imminent global warming catastrophe). In Never Enough, Voegeli, a visiting scholar at Claremont McKenna College's Henry Salvatori Center and a contributing editor of this journal, points to a complementary concept: liberalism, he argues, "lacks a limiting principle." This boundlessness, as it might be described, is familiar to Americans across the country who have watched, for instance, secondary school costs and college tuitions grow at roughly twice the rate of inflation for a quarter-century now. This boundlessness generates some of the apprehension that animates the Tea Parties. As a friend asked me rhetorically—referring to the fact that the failing schools in Washington, D.C., spend $28,000 a year per pupil while Harvard tuition costs $34,000 a year—"When will enough be enough?" The same question could be asked regarding federal and state spending. Liberals, Voegeli explains, sometimes avoid trying to answer these sorts of questions by execrating as greedy racists those who ask them.

Liberals found a warrant for expansive government in their reconceptualization of the American republic. The Federalist had grounded government and rights in the imperfections of human nature. The proto-liberals of the Progressive era, who had drunk deeply of Darwinism, disposed of the notion of an inherent human nature. Like Woodrow Wilson, they were done with "blind" worship of the Constitution. Their concept of rights flowed from the felt necessities of history as it unfolded. History required, as Wilson argued, that "[t]he government of a country so vast and various must be strong, prompt, wieldy and efficient." Highly trained, disinterested experts, the products of university education, were to wield this powerful instrument untethered from Madisonian restraints and guided by visionary insight into the direction of history. Of course, notes Voegeli, "the dubious authority asserted by those who claim they can see farther over the horizon than the rest of us is, among other things, a way to make their own political preferences cast a bigger shadow."

As an official of the Agency for International Development stated, "Rather dead than alive and riotously reproducing."

On the hidden cost of national health care My British mother-in-law has basically housebound because of socialized medicine AND because they deny her the one pain medication that helped with her arthritis ("too expensive") she no longer has the creative outlets she used to. I can not tell you how EVIL nationalized healthcare is. Evil. Death panels-are-real-Evil.

Think I'm kidding? Obama Names Rationing Czar to Run Medicare
“Happy birthday,” the ebullient doctor told the British health care socialists. If you have not noticed already, this man has a crush on collectivism. “Cynics beware,” he said. “I am romantic about the National Health Service; I love it.” This love extends to approbation for rationing health care and using the health care system to redistribute wealth.

“You cap your health care budget, and you make the political and economic choices you need to make to keep affordability within reach,” Berwick told the Brits."
That's the man Obama picked to make medical decisions about your health. Enjoy.

Free Speech Vs. Freedom to Assemble

This is a tough one but in the particular instance of the Snyder's, I hope the Supreme Court rules in his favor. Slain Marine's father fights funeral protesters

Snyder, a Pennsylvania resident, is challenging the protests held by the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas. Westboro pastor Fred Phelps and other members — many of them Phelps' family members — have become well known for their funeral protests, which they have used to advertise their belief that U.S. Iraq war deaths are punishment for the nation's tolerance of homosexuality.

Church members have protested at numerous soldiers' funerals nationwide. In March 2006, they protested at the funeral of 20-year-old Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, Albert Snyder's son. Standing outside the funeral at a church in Westminster, Md., Westboro members held signs that read "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" and "You're going to Hell," among other things.
I bow to no one in my support of free speech, even when I want to wring the neck of the person speaking. But no one has the right to deliberately disrupt a funeral. Especially a the funeral of a man who died protecting your rights.

Twenty-nine states have signed up supporting Mr. Snyder's case and my question is why haven't the other twenty-one?

The Westboro tactics are repulsive and vile. Do they have the right to "rhetorical hyperbole"? Yes. Do they have the right to engage in "rhetorical hyperbole" at a stranger's funeral? Absolutely Freaking NOT.

Let's face it, the Westboro group is using "shock value". It's a nasty trend developed by Baby Boomers and their ilk to get attention. Shock value used to have currency but if we all work together we can debase that particular coin. May I suggest naming-and-shaming, legal recourse, funding withdrawl, and osticizing. Only once, shock value, created by "rhetorical hyperbole", is valueless can truly civil discourse begin.

Because manners, tradition, and customs are not some bourgouise relic of the past. They are the social glue of all communities and have evolved over all of human development as a way to mantain cohesive societies. Courtesy isn't quaint, it is a vital need if we are to work together as human beings. Learning good manners is learning to treat everyone with respect, dignity and fairness.

As always I blame the societal upheavals caused by the Baby Boomer's but we all now are responsible for reversing their bad behavior. While that generation refuses to grow up or accept responsibility for the ills their "movements" inflicted on us, we must insist on grown-up behavior from others.

Whether it is naming-and-shaming bad behavior or supporting Mr. Snyder's fight, just because you want to do something does NOT give you the right to do it. Defending Mr. Snyder's right to bury his son in peace isn't just about freedom to assemble, it's about the rights of all Americans to be treated with dignity and fairness. Good manners and civil behavior from everyone creates that respectful treatment. The Westboro group deserves to be made an example that Americans will no longer tolerate shocking behavior as a form of communication.

A New Reason To Hate Obamacare

It's an attack on marriage...
ObamaCare means a new tax will disproportionately fall to lower and middle income couples who choose to get married rather than just live together. The House Republicans gave an example of an unmarried couple, each earning $25,000, for a total income of $50,000 who would pay annual health insurance premiums capped at $3,076. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that about 17 million people would receive such subsidies in 2016 under the House health care bill. A married couple with the same combined income, $50,000 a year, would pay premiums capped at $5,160 — a “marriage penalty” of $2,084.

It's The EPA, What Did You Expect

A Very Disturbing, Job-Killing Trend

Who's A Rube Now Liberal Assassin?

What’s most striking to me about all of this is that — as I noted yesterday (and as Olbermann stressed) — George Bush’s decision merely to eavesdrop on American citizens without oversight, or to detain without due process Americans such as Jose Padilla and Yaser Hamdi, provoked years of vehement, vocal and intense complaints from Democrats and progressives. All of that was disparaged as Bush claiming the powers of a King, a vicious attack on the Constitution, a violation of Our Values, the trampling on the Rule of Law. Yet here you have Barack Obama not merely eavesdropping on or detaining Americans without oversight, but ordering them killed with no oversight and no due process of any kind. And the reaction among leading Democrats and progressives is largely non-existent, which is why Olbermann’s extensive coverage of it is important. Just imagine what the reaction would have been among progressive editorial pages, liberal opinion-makers and Democratic politicians if this story had been about George Bush and Dick Cheney targeting American citizens for due-process-free and oversight-less CIA assassinations.

If We've Learned Anything...

If we've learned anything about who we should elect for president in 2012 from the current administration, it's not that people of different ethnic backgrounds can not be president. Absolutely not that.

It's not that Senators can't be president. Although I strongly believe (and always have) that Senators in general are a worse choice than governors and that freshmen Senators should NEVER be president.

But what we have learned is never, ever elect anyone from Chicago to the presidency. Ever.

Never, never, never.

I Am Ashamed

I've been a rotten blogger lately. My round-ups have suffered. I've been tired, very busy, and thinking about developing a new business.

Also, I don't know about ya'll but I have been overwhelmed by the amount of corruption pouring out of the White House, Congress, and the Mainstream Media lately. Every day, they seem to concoct a fresh hell evoking paralyzing anger and horror. At least in me.

When I think of the arrogant stupidity Congress and Obama engage in each and every day, I am revolted and fear they are turning the great United States of America into a third-rate banana republic. When I consider how the above mentioned arrogance and stupidity is reported in the media I am disgusted by the complete and utter failure of 21st century journalism.

I will never be ashamed of being an American but I am deeply ashamed of how our Federal government is being run. I am repulsed and ashamed of the collapse of responsible journalism. And I am ashamed of the vile acceptance of corrupt politicians in our highest circle of government.

What's wrong with you people?

So, in an act of self-protection, I have not been blogging or doing my round-ups as much as I used to because it was so exhausting trying to keep up.

But perhaps that is their goal. Perhaps the democrats in Congress, knowing the hand is writing on their walls, are hoping to pass as much crap as possible knowing that once the voters kick them out, Obama will veto all repeals.

Well, I can promise you this. If I am reading the will of the people correctly, not only will all the bums be kicked out of Congress but all their crap will be repealed as Congress can overrule any vetoes of Obama's by passing the repeal bill a second time with a two-third majority in each house. The democrats and Obama should live to see all their corrupt works undone.

And that should be our goal in this fight. To win enough of a majority in each house to stop and reverse all of the socialistic laws originating from Obama and the democrats. To crush, once and for all, this movement to destroy the American values, the American exceptionalism that made this country so great.

I promise to try harder to help expose the unethical, the corrupt and the deceptive so that we can all make solid choice based on real facts.
