It's Time to Start Taking Sides

Uncharacteristically Billy Roy Mitchum, while enjoying a few days of down time from his busy summer schedule of serenading the country and western fans of Central Texas, introduced the topic of conversation as Linda, the World's Greatest Waitress, poured coffee (stronger than the California governor in his prime). "I have always thought you could tell about a person by getting them to 'take sides', and while I don't have much good to say about our current White House resident, he does take sides. Just in the past few days he has sided with the Russians, anti-job environmentalists, anti-spill clean up Unions, illegal foreign criminals, Muslims, and then to top it off, the Black Panthers."

Aunt Martha was stunned by this remark, "BM, its not like you to exaggerate.  What in the world are you talking about?"

Of course this was a giant opening for Butch Jackson who is a semi store house of information of pertinent and some irrelevant facts, figures, and other things.  "Here is the background data that not only supports BM's statement but folks are at least sub-consciously considering as they approach the November mid-term elections:

Russian Spies

One side believes we should hold these 10 spies long enough to find out what and who they know and how to guard against more breaches of security.

Obama wants to release them in hopes that it will 'improve relationships with the Russians'.

Jobs and Energy

One side believes we should protect jobs during a tough economic cycle while reducing our dependence of foreign energy.

Obama wants to suspend drilling in the Gulf eliminating 80,000 jobs while increasing our dependence on foreign oil and our exposure to more tanker spills.  And what jobs has Obama produced? The economy has lost 2.3 million jobs since he signed his stimulus bill, leaving him 7.4 million jobs short of what he promised the American economy would support by 2010.

Oil Spill Clean Up

One side wants to use every emergency aid available to keep the oil from contaminating the beaches and marshes while cleaning the spill as fast as possible.

Obama wants to protect his campaign contributions from Unions by keeping foreign ships from participating in the clean up .

Illegal Criminals Crossing Our Border

One side supports any state, Arizona, in their efforts to enforce laws and protect their citizens and borders from illegal immigrants and drug cartels.

Obama wants to sue Arizona for enforcing federal laws that he will not enforce because he wants to make 12 million illegal criminals Democratic Party voters.

NASA and Muslims

One side wants to use tax payer money spent on NASA to advance the USA's interest in science and technology while insuring that foreign governments do not use space to threaten the safety and security of the country.

Obama wants our primary and 'foremost' mission for NASA to be praising Muslim nations and their contributions to science and mathematics in the hopes that it will improve their view of Christian and Jewish infidels.

Voting Rights and Racism

One side wants to enforce voting laws that protect polling places from menacing people with weapons who are trying to keep polling observers from interfering with the 400,000 fraudulent votes that ACORN and other 'community action' groups stuff into ballot boxes.

Obama supports the dropping of, not only charges, but convictions of Black Panthers who make videos screaming for Blacks to kill all Crackers and White babies and not to associate with White Whores.  These same Black Panthers are videoed with clubs intimidating White voters and polling observers.  This from the Black President that was 'post racial' and would bring us all together.  The same one that is currently fomenting hate and distrust in the Hispanic community as well as he tells them they can't take their children to get ice cream cones without being harrassed."

BM then approached Martha with great sincerity, "Aunt Martha, it pains me to say that I don't believe we are exaggerating, and I am afraid we may even be understating Obama's positions, motivations, and intentions.  You know I am like a lot of other people who didn't know things were working so good, until Obama broke them so bad."

Folks at the Cafe came back to coffee still mulling over silly things like freedom, liberty, justice, and stuff that were kicking up dust during the 4th of July Weekend. Butch Jackson is well known for his frugal ways being the next to the last guy to be apt to pick up a check for group coffee (right behind the likes of post office or other semi-government employees). So it wasn't surprising to hear Butch reflect on taxes and the recently celebrated American Revolution, "Don't ever forget the big issue in those days was being taxed without a 'say so' in how the tax money is spent. They called it TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. It was a really big deal to the colony folks, and particularly the land owners and business guys."

"Yep," retorted Billy Roy Mitchum, "And look at us today some 230 years later. We have come full circle. Ever sense our guys fought to gain freedom and justice from the Brits this whole 'representation' thing has become sacred. The main way we are represented is by voting. There has been a concentrated effort to get every citizen, and some that aren't, to the polls. Hell, that was the main job of our current resident in the White House. He was a 'community organizer'. These organizers are mostly people, like Obama, of means who go into poor areas and get people to sign up and vote for their candidates. This is a major way the 'elite' control elections. When they get their candidates into office in one of these districts they are usually 'safe' from being defeated ever again. In fact they are called 'safe districts'. Pukes like Pelosi and Barney Frank come from safe districts.  Politicians can do a lot of damage to our way of life when they don't have to worry about having to defend themselves in future elections. This thing called 'term limits' is their worst fear since it would stop the corruption that comes with unchallenged politicians."

Of course Butch came back in on the tax thing, "I hear you loud and clear, BM. So in 230 years it seems to me we have gone from TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION to REPRESENTATION WITHOUT TAXATION. For example, in the great State of Texas our schools are financed by real estate taxes from home owners. Homeowners represent 47% of the voters and shrinking. The majority of voters, that being about 53%, pay no school taxes. Yet, they can control the tax rates, spending, and distribution of revenues collected from the home owners. The same is true with income taxes. Very soon the majority of Americans will pay zero taxes, and yet they have full voting rights. Our founding fathers are flopping in their graves I am sure to see how far we have come. Most folks think women got the right to vote in 1920 with women's suffrage. The truth is in the state of New Jersey women had the same rights as men to vote in 1776. But, a big but, both had to be land owners. Our founders believed voters needed to have skin in the game to play the game."

Mom felt moved to participate, "Seems in our current 'Obama World' we have Socialist not only at the bottom of our society who want rights without paying any of the bills, and then we have these Socialists at the top that we call elitists or crony capitalists (folks like Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street) who want to use the government to protect their fortunes while the middle class are footing the bill. I am beginning for the first time to understand why people like Bill Gates (Microsoft), Warren Buffet (Berkshire Hathaway), George Soros, and Robert Rubin (Goldman Sachs and 80% of Wall Street) are such big time Obama supporters. If they screw up, Obama will bail them out.  Also, he protects their monopolies from the middle class while letting them play a major role in the governing elite. The tea party movement seems to be a wake up call, and I just hope it is strong enough and has staying power to turn the country around."

Well, coffee ended with a resounding,  "AMEN".

As much as I agree with Mom, and always have, I must admit that both of us are beginning to forget things that we never even knew.

Think about it,
