What Would Reagan Do?

Mom opened deliberations  by asking no one in particular, "Given our situation in this country today, what would Ronald Reagan do?" 

All eyes, of course, went to Billy Roy Mitchum, a big Reagan devotee when not singing Merle Haggard songs or presiding over coffee at the Hubbard City Cafe, "Back in 1964, Reagan challenged conservatives, and he darned sure do the same today.  He said it was a 'Time for Choosing'  'You and I are told we must choose between a left or right,' Reagan said, 'but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right, There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream -- the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism'."

"Butch, take out your iPhone and google up totalitarianism.  It's a big word.  Then tell us whether you think it fits as a threat here in this year of 2010."

"I'm all over it, BM.  Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state, usually under the control of a single political person, faction, or class, recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.  Totalitarianism creates a state where ordinary citizens have no significant share in decision-making and ideology that directs most if not all aspects of public and private life. 

"Totalitarian regimes or movements maintain political power through an all-encompassing propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that is often marked by personality cultism, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of speech, mass surveillance, and widespread use of state terrorism."

"So if today's question is does this fit our situation today?  Duh, did Clinton have sex with that woman?", Butch loves to answer questions with questions.

The coffee group then began to really dig in by applying  the definition of this big word to our current regime in DC (District of Corruption):

State under the control of a political person named Barrack Hussein Obama

Faction or Class would be the socialist ruling class of elites

No limits to its authority by appointing Czars, passing Health Care using legislative tricks when it didn't have the votes, violating the Commerce Clause of the Constitution by forcing people to buy insurance, bribing politicians not to run for office, stopping oil drilling in the Gulf against court orders and public pleas, suing the State of Arizona for enforcing federal laws, and funneling tax payer money to 'green' scam businesses and labor unions, burying tax hikes in ever corner of every piece of legislation, appointing Supreme Court Justices who believe the Constitution is outdated and needs reforming, etc.

Striving to regulate every aspect of public and private life like our auto, finance, health care, and energy industries (so far).  Now they are going after our body weight.

Propaganda from state controlled media like CBS, NBC, ABC, New York Times, and Washington Post

Personality cult like Obama the Messiah

Restriction of speech would include "The Fairness Doctrine" and calling anyone who disagrees with them racists

Widespread use of terrorism from an regime that will not even say the words Islamic Radical Terrorist and who refuse to protect our borders and citizens but read Miranda rights to mass Jihadists murderers

Mom finally nudged back into the conversation, "So what would Reagan do?"

"You are right as usual, Maxine, also as usual when led by Butch, we digress.  The good news is that I think Reagan would outline the same plan he did in 1977, for a 'The New Republican Party', stating, 'The principles of conservatism are sound because they are based on what men and women have discovered through experience in not just one generation or a dozen, but in all the combined experience of mankind. When we conservatives say that we know something about political affairs, and what we know can be stated as principles, we are saying that the principles we hold dear are those that have been found, through experience, to be ultimately beneficial for individuals, for families, for communities and for nations -- found through the often bitter testing of pain, or sacrifice and sorrow'. 

"And we are certainly suffering some of that pain and sorrow with these assholes in office today.  I think Obama's greatest fear is that this country led by the Tea Party folks will 'go back' to our founding principles instead of 'moving ahead' to Obama's marxist plan to destroy this country.  Let's adjourn and break down Reagan's principles at our next coffee."

I don't know how Butch and BM remember all of these facts and quotes and things because these days I am beginning to forget even things I never knew.

Think about it until it's time for coffee again,

Trading Cow Fart Credits (CFCs)?

Those of you who have been following this blog for some time know that downtown Hubbard City suffers from Global Warming every July and August.  Those of the current Ruling Class who take their coffee at the Hubbard City Drugstore blame the warming on excessive gas expelled by cows who reside on land owned and operated by one Scott Riddle, local rancher and insurance barren and husband of Pat, who is an angel.  Scott, his family, and many cows live west of downtown Hubbard.

Well, it seems the real estate market is somewhat slow in Hubbard, and a local unnamed realtor, Ram He-Mauel, is not letting this warming crisis go to waste.  Seems this entrepreneur has set up an exchange where he will buy Cow Fart Credits (CFCs) from those who own land (and don't own cows) and sell them to Scott Riddle (who owns many, many farting cows).  Legislation has been proposed to the Hubbard City Counsel that would require any rancher to have no more than one cow farting per every 20 acres.  This legislation would allow the trading of Cow Fart Credits (CFCs) to balance farts across central Texas ranches.  This legislation is entitled:  CRAP AND TRADE.  This writer will follow this pending legislation and hopes to interview most of the involved parties once the air clears.  Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Once Happy Harry Reid is preparing to bring a Cap and Trade Bill to his crack governing body in Washington, D.C.  This legislation would be patterned after Al Gore and friends plans to save the world from global warming while they also stimulate the capitalist system.  Algore is an investor in the Chicago Climate Exchange along with other honorable people like Goldman Sachs.  This exchange provides a trading floor for Carbon Credits (the exchange takes a fee around 4% for every trade). 

Traders include organizations like The National Farmers Union who promotes tax payer scams like renewable energy sources such as ethanol, biodiesel and wind energy.  National Farmers Union’s Carbon Credit Program is a multi-state program that allows farmers and landowners to earn income by storing carbon in their soil through "no-till" crop production and longterm grass seeding practices. We know a lot of lazy farmers around Hubbard that would love the "no till" way of making money by just letting the carbon stay in the ground, huh?  Farmers Union has earned approval from the Chicago Climate Exchange to aggregate carbon credits. Farmers Union is enrolling producer areas of carbon into blocks of credits that will be traded on the Exchange, much like other agricultural commodities are traded.

The National Farm Union surprisingly were big supporters of President Hussein in 2008.  They graded each of the candidates based on their policies. Obama received a perfect 100% rating, based on his support of the 2008 Farm Bill and a renewable fuel standard. On the other hand, the organization gave John McCain a grade of zero percent, in part because he was in favor of reducing subsidies for ethanol and food products (can you imagine that?).

Folks, we are not making this up.  The greatest scam ever is unfolding before our very eyes.  Al Gore, Valerie Jarrett, Obama, the Green Movement, and the Chicago Machine are all financially invested in this ridiculous scheme.  They have BILLIONS of YOUR DOLLARS in their gun sites.

This nation can not survive Socialized Health Care, the auto industry takeover by unions, government bailouts, deficit spending, and takeovers of Wall Street (with their Goldman Sachs accomplices), and now the proposed CRAP AND TRADE.

That's what I think, but then I could write a book about what I don't know,
