Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy)

A system of government wherein the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and wherein the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

I got this from The Western Center for Journalism:  http://www.westernjournalism.com/an-american-patriot-reveals-diane-feinstein-to-be-an-un-american-hypocrite

This is a letter to Diane Feinstein from a fellow Marine veteran.  It reflects my exact sentiments to her and other un-American hypocrites like her.

 

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Irony At Its Best

2012/08/10

The SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)/Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to “Please Do Not Feed The Animals.” They say that this is because the animals may grow dependent on handouts and not learn to take care of themselves.

Sick, sick, sick.

My heart breaks at today’s tragedy, but I’m also enraged at these sick twisted obama supporters:

Put Me In Charge

2012/06/08

I got this out of the monthly newsletter from my local gun range.  It is so encouraging that there are some young folks out there that really understand what is going on.  Too good not to post.  Enjoy.

—————————

This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it.  It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big  government state that she’s being forced to live in!  These solutions are  just common sense in her opinion.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, , Nov 18, 2011

PUT ME IN CHARGE . . .

Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans,  blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want  steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use  drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing.  Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be  inventoried.  If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your  own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job.  It may be cleaning the roadways  of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.  We  will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo  and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”

Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary.  If you want our money, accept our rules.  Before you  say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem,” consider  that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing  absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.  The current system  rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE!  Yes,  that is correct.  For you to vote would be a conflict of interest.  You will  voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t  welfare check.  If you want to vote, then get a job.

 

Bill Press

2012/06/06

Yet another liberal anti-American ass (sorry for the triple redundancy there) shows his true colors.  Liberal talker Bill Press called our National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, “stupid and embarrassing”.  It is true that I and other veterans fought so we the people have the freedom to say what we think, but still, this un-American ass should move to China.

AttackWatch?

2011/09/16

So obama has this website called “attackwatch”.  It is supposed to counter any “attacks” on obama and his record.  What a joke.  It should be called “TruthWatch”, as all it does is try to counter the truth.  I took a look at it and it just has all the same lies that come out of his mouth on a daily basis.  Not even worth the time to read, unless you want a good laugh.

A buddy sent this to me, an article in the Wall Street Journal.  Too good not to post.  Enjoy.

We’ve Become a Nation of Takers, Not Makers
More Americans work for the government than in manufacturing, farming, fishing, forestry, mining and utilities combined.

By Stephen Moore
If you want to understand better why so many states—from New York to Wisconsin to California—are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, consider this depressing statistic: Today in America there are nearly twice as many people working for the government (22.5 million) than in all of manufacturing (11.5 million). This is an almost exact reversal of the situation in 1960, when there were 15 million workers in manufacturing and 8.7 million collecting a paycheck from the government.

It gets worse. More Americans work for the government than work in construction, farming, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining and utilities combined. We have moved decisively from a nation of makers to a nation of takers. Nearly half of the $2.2 trillion cost of state and local governments is the $1 trillion-a-year tab for pay and benefits of state and local employees. Is it any wonder that so many states and cities cannot pay their bills?

Steve Moore has the details on Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan to cut spending.

Every state in America today except for two—Indiana and Wisconsin—has more government workers on the payroll than people manufacturing industrial goods. Consider California, which has the highest budget deficit in the history of the states. The not-so Golden State now has an incredible 2.4 million government employees—twice as many as people at work in manufacturing. New Jersey has just under two-and-a-half as many government employees as manufacturers. Florida’s ratio is more than 3 to 1. So is New York’s.

Even Michigan, at one time the auto capital of the world, and Pennsylvania, once the steel capital, have more government bureaucrats than people making things. The leaders in government hiring are Wyoming and New Mexico, which have hired more than six government workers for every manufacturing worker.

Now it is certainly true that many states have not typically been home to traditional manufacturing operations. Iowa and Nebraska are farm states, for example. But in those states, there are at least five times more government workers than farmers. West Virginia is the mining capital of the world, yet it has at least three times more government workers than miners. New York is the financial capital of the world—at least for now. That sector employs roughly 670,000 New Yorkers. That’s less than half of the state’s 1.48 million government employees.

Don’t expect a reversal of this trend anytime soon. Surveys of college graduates are finding that more and more of our top minds want to work for the government. Why? Because in recent years only government agencies have been hiring, and because the offer of near lifetime security is highly valued in these times of economic turbulence. When 23-year-olds aren’t willing to take career risks, we have a real problem on our hands. Sadly, we could end up with a generation of Americans who want to work at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The employment trends described here are explained in part by hugely beneficial productivity improvements in such traditional industries as farming, manufacturing, financial services and telecommunications. These produce far more output per worker than in the past. The typical farmer, for example, is today at least three times more productive than in 1950.

Where are the productivity gains in government? Consider a core function of state and local governments: schools. Over the period 1970-2005, school spending per pupil, adjusted for inflation, doubled, while standardized achievement test scores were flat. Over roughly that same time period, public-school employment doubled per student, according to a study by researchers at the University of Washington. That is what economists call negative productivity.

But education is an industry where we measure performance backwards: We gauge school performance not by outputs, but by inputs. If quality falls, we say we didn’t pay teachers enough or we need smaller class sizes or newer schools. If education had undergone the same productivity revolution that manufacturing has, we would have half as many educators, smaller school budgets, and higher graduation rates and test scores.

The same is true of almost all other government services. Mass transit spends more and more every year and yet a much smaller share of Americans use trains and buses today than in past decades. One way that private companies spur productivity is by firing underperforming employees and rewarding excellence. In government employment, tenure for teachers and near lifetime employment for other civil servants shields workers from this basic system of reward and punishment. It is a system that breeds mediocrity, which is what we’ve gotten.

Most reasonable steps to restrain public-sector employment costs are smothered by the unions. Study after study has shown that states and cities could shave 20% to 40% off the cost of many services—fire fighting, public transportation, garbage collection, administrative functions, even prison operations—through competitive contracting to private providers. But unions have blocked many of those efforts. Public employees maintain that they are underpaid relative to equally qualified private-sector workers, yet they are deathly afraid of competitive bidding for government services.

President Obama says we have to retool our economy to “win the future.” The only way to do that is to grow the economy that makes things, not the sector that takes things.

This is great, had to share…

Editor’s note: The following open letter was first submitted to the Miami Herald, but the paper opted not to publish it.

Miami is my hometown.  When I was born at Hialeah Hospital in 1959, you were 2 years old and moving here from Cuba, to escape Communism.

America and its freedom, free enterprise and capitalism gave you the opportunity to become a superstar, to be financially and vocationally successful.

America is now under siege by a Marxist, progressive, leftist, radical, socialist, communist dictator drunk with power.  His name is Obama.

You invited him to your home on April 15, 2010, for a Democratic fundraiser.

1. His parents were communists. His grandparents were communists. His childhood mentor Frank Davis was a communist.

2. He had “Marxist professors.” He taught a class on Saul Alinsky whose book “Rules for Radicals” is dedicated to Lucifer.

3. His college records are sealed.

4. He claims to be a Christian yet ridicules Scripture, denies Jesus is the only way to salvation, supports partial-birth abortion and attended a church for 20 years pastored by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who did not teach Christianity but “Black Liberation Theology,” which is Marxism disguised as religion.

5. He is friends with radicals and communists like William Ayers and has appointed many of them to positions of power – Sunstein, Jarrett, Van Jones, etc.

6. He told Joe the Plumber on the campaign trail that his philosophy was to “spread the wealth.” This is a direct quote from “The Communist Manifesto” written by Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels.

7. When he entered office he immediately took over the banks, the auto industry, health care (by bribery) and is intent on ending freedom of speech on the Internet, radio and TV by fees and fines. He is intent on using the myth of human-caused global warming to usurp control over our energy by Cap ‘n Tax, which would limit the number of minutes we take a shower and the kind of light bulbs we use.

8. His arrogant, excessive spending, with his stimulus laws and over-taxation, is destroying our economy, the middle class and our children’s future quality of life.

You had the audacity to invite this communist over to your home to raise money for the Democratic Party, which is controlling Congress and giving him unlimited power to achieve his goal of making our once-free country a welfare state, just like the Cuba you left.

You are either uninformed, ignorant or crazy.

Estudio Espanol dos anos en mi escuela secundario, y I think you are loco en la cabeza.

I ask my Cuban friends and neighbors what happened to you. Don’t you remember where you came from?  Your father in a Cuban communist jail? They shake their heads sadly.

You spit on the free country that gave you the American Dream.

I urge you to educate yourself on what is happening in America today.  Nov. 2 is the most serious vote of our nation’s history.  We will vote in either liberty or tyranny.

How can you vote in tyranny when your family and friends risked their lives on rafts to escape it?

I don’t understand you.

Sincerely,

Victoria Jackson (“Saturday Night Live” cast member 1986-1992 because of capitalism/freedom)

As obama and the liberals/socialists/communists push through their illegal and unconstitutional government takeover of our nation’s healthcare system, some of us wonder what it will be like if they succeed.  The article below is just one of the thousands shining examples of how good it will be if obama succeeds:

Hospital left patients ‘sobbing’

By Nick Triggle
Health reporter, BBC News

Hospital patients were left “sobbing and humiliated” by uncaring staff, an investigation into one of the worst NHS scandals in history has found.

The independent inquiry claimed the Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust had become driven by targets and cost-cutting.

The report – the latest in a long line of critical reviews – said the distress and suffering had been “unimaginable”.

Last year it was reported there were at least 400 more deaths than expected at the trust from 2005 to 2008.

But the relatives of patients treated there said many questions still remained unanswered.

In particular, they want a public inquiry into how the scandal could have happened, including the role of the wider NHS in the case.

ANALYSIS
BBC health reporter Nick Triggle
It may be uncomfortable for ministers, but there are still major questions that need to be answered about the Stafford Hospital scandal.

The poor treatment patients received is now well documented. But what remains unclear is why it was not picked up earlier.

The hospital would have been monitored by a primary care trust, strategic health authority and host of patient safety agencies, but none picked up the problems. In fact, the SHA even dismissed concerns about high death rates at one point.

At the same time, the trust which runs the hospital was able to climb the NHS ratings system and was approved for foundation trust status during the period.

In the end, it took a private research group, Dr Foster, to flag up concerns which helped prompt the regulator to look into the issue and publish its findings last year.

The trust had been climbing the NHS ratings ladder during the period in question and was even given elite foundation trust status.

The Tories have said they would back a public inquiry, but ministers have so far resisted.

Instead, they set up this inquiry, led by Robert Francis QC, which has been held in private and mainly focused on what happened inside the trust and in particular Stafford Hospital, one of two run by the organisation.

Following publication of the inquiry report, the government said Mr Francis would now be allowed to look into the regulation and monitoring issues.

Stafford Hospital hit the headlines last year when a report was published by the Healthcare Commission claiming patients had been “dying needlessly” and put the number of excess deaths at more than 400.

It reported a catalogue of shocking examples, including cases where unqualified receptionists assessed people as they arrived at A&E.

The findings were then followed by two government reviews.

‘Routinely neglected’

This latest report also outlines instances where patients were “routinely neglected”.

It documents cases where patients were left in soiled sheets which relatives were forced to wash.

And it highlights examples where patients were left alone, leading to falls – some fatal, which were not reported.

And one woman, who gave evidence, told the inquiry: “My Mum was in absolute agony, I can hear her screams now, as I walked into the ward.”

Half of the patients and relatives who gave evidence also cited problems getting enough food and drink.

The report criticised the “ineffective” management which was too often concerned with hitting targets, particularly in A&E, as well as the “lack of compassion” and “uncaring attitude” of staff.

But staffing levels were also said to be too low because the trust was trying to slash costs by £10m.

STAFFORD HOSPITAL TIMELINE

  • November 2007 – Campaign group, Cure the NHS, set up amid concerns about care
  • March 2009 – Healthcare Commission report published, revealing “appalling” standards of care and at least 400 excess deaths
  • April 2009 – Two Department of Health reviews published, showing standards improving
  • May 2009 – The hospital says a report into the role of the chief executive, Martin Yeates, in the scandal will not be published
  • July 2009 – Ministers announce an independent inquiry into case, but stop short of a full public inquiry as demanded by campaigners
  • July 2009 – Inspectors say hospital care is safe, but they still have concerns about staffing. Warning repeated in subsequent checks
  • October 2009 – The trust is given the worst grade, weak, in the annual NHS ratings system
  • February 2010 – Independent inquiry published, describing patients left “sobbing and humiliated”
  • Julie Bailey, whose mother died at the hospital and the founder of the victims’ campaign group Cure the NHS, said the handling of the scandal had been “disgraceful and unacceptable” – and reiterated her call for a public inquiry.

    “It is time that the public were told the truth about the very large number of excess deaths of patients in NHS care and the very large number of avoidable but deadly errors that occur in NHS hospitals every day.”

    Since the original Healthcare Commission report, inspectors have been carrying out regular checks and have said care is now safe, although some problems persist over staffing and equipment.

    The chief executive and chairman in charge during the period in question have been replaced and the General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council are investigating some of the staff involved.

    Sir Stephen Moss, the new chairman of the trust, said: “I would like to apologise unreservedly for the harm and distress that people suffered during that time and thank those who spoke to the Inquiry.

    “Their courage in coming forward has helped us learn from the errors of the past and to make changes that have already improved our services”.

    Health Secretary Andy Burnham said there could be “no excuses” for the failings.

    But he added: “This was ultimately a local failure, but it is vital that we learn the lessons nationally to ensure that it won’t happen again – we expect everyone in the NHS to read the report and act on it.”

    But Patients Association president Claire Rayner said: “The scale of problems at Stafford might have been unique but failures in essential nursing care are not.”
