Allen West will NOT be Intimidated by UNION Astroturfer’s

Rep. Allen West: ‘You’re Not Going to Intimidate Me’; Heckler Arrested at Town Hall

 

 

In their race to elect the first black man as president, they voted for the worst president in US history. Allen West as President would do American Blacks a favor by correcting a huge mistake made by the American people on 2008. I’m keeping my powder dry on who I will support, unless West, Rubio or Chris Christe throws their hats in the ring. I’d be all in for either of them.

Unions-v-Illegal Aliens: A Dilemma for Democrats

Democrats are PRO ILLEGAL ALIENS and PRO UNIONS, and both rape the LEGAL American Tax payers to the tune of HUNDREDS-of-BILLIONS every year!

Obama, the National Labor Relations Board and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers UNION are sueing Boeing. Why? While Boeing is KEEPING their plant in Washington that employees 25,000 workers, they opened up another plant in South Carolina to build their 787’s.

Good Right, especially since this put 1,000 more Americans to work.

WRONG says Obama, the NLRB and the UNIONS. You see, South Carolina is a Right-to-Work state therefore the UNIONS CANNOT FORCE workers to join UNIONS and FORCE UNION DUES from them. This in turn means LESS money for DEMOCRATS.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., delivered a scathing indictment of the NLRB move.

“This is one of the worst examples of unelected bureaucrats doing the bidding of special interest groups that I’ve ever seen,” Graham said. “In this case, the NLRB is doing the bidding of the unions at great cost to South Carolina and our nation’s economy.”

 

Those of US with COMMON SENSE have an Easy fix for this:

Replace all of the union workers with illegal aliens and watch the liberals implode trying to decide if they should be supporting the union or the illegals.


Entitlement Programs Account for 60% of US National Debt Continued….

 

 

 

I know, I am sure my post here will seem cruel to the elderly and the disabled, and of course Obama’s ILLEGAL ALIENS who are in fact using Medicare and all other programs-but let’s be frank-Medicare is busted, unsustainable, in the red, bankrupt, full of fraud/waste/abuse just like EVERY SINGLE ENTITY the government has its hands int.

I dare you to find just ONE government entity that is not in the red, full of fraud/abuse/waste and runs efficiently. Please try before I turn 80, which will be in less than 45 years from today!

United States has an estimated 308,745,538 citizens as of 2010

as of 2010, there were 71 MILLION people enrolled in Medicaid and 46 million enrolled in Medicare, which is 1/3 of the population that is enrolled in GOVERNMENT Funded health Care……..

  • Ronald Reagan, as part of Operation Coffee Cup in 1961, stated that: “[I]f you don’t [stop Medicare] and I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”[71]
  • George H. W. Bush, while a candidate for the US Senate in 1964, described Medicare as “socialized medicine.”[72]
  • Barry Goldwater in 1964: “Having given our pensioners their medical care in kind, why not food baskets, why not public housing accommodations, why not vacation resorts, why not a ration of cigarettes for those who smoke and of beer for those who drink.”[73]
  • In 1995 Bob Dole stated that he was one of 12 House members who voted against creating Medicare in 1965. “I was there, fighting the fight, voting against Medicare … because we knew it wouldn’t work in 1965.”

 

FACT: The US’s ILLEGAL ALIEN population is equal to at least HALF of ALL of Canada’s population.

 FACT: Those on Medicare alone in the US total 10+ MILLION more than ALL of Canada’s population. In Fact, as of June 2010, there were approximately 47,348,255 Medicare enrollees.  

FACT: Medicare operates similarly to a single-payer health care system and we see what an abysmal failure the government has turned Medicare into not to mention the fact that it is the LARGEST expenditure for the US’s annual budget.

FACT: Medicare spending is growing steadily in both absolute terms and as a percentage of the federal budget. Total Medicare spending reached $440 billion for fiscal year 2007 or 16% of all federal spending and grew to $599 billion in 2008 which was 20% of federal spending. In 2010, Medicare spending grew to $703 billion which was 23% of fedeal spending.

FACT: According to the 2008 report by the board of trustees for Medicare and Social Security, Medicare spent more than it brought in from taxes in 2008. The Medicare hospital insurance trust fund will become insolvent by 2016.

The present value of unfunded obligations under all parts of Medicare during FY 2009 over an infinite horizon is approximately $36 trillion. In other words, this amount would have to be set aside today such that the principal and interest would cover the shortfall assuming the program continues indefinitely.

The New York Times wrote in January 2009 that Social Security and Medicare “have proved almost sacrosanct in political terms, even as they threaten to grow so large as to be unsustainable in the long run.”

Further, the CBO also projects that “total federal Medicare and Medicaid outlays will rise from 4 percent of GDP in 2007 to 12 percent in 2050 and 19 percent in 2082—which, as a share of the economy, is roughly equivalent to the total amount that the federal government spends today. The bulk of that projected increase in health care spending reflects higher costs per beneficiary rather than an increase in the number of beneficiaries associated with an aging population.”

Pay for Unions Workers

 

As compensation for churning out leftist inanity and forcing school districts into promises they cannot keep, OEA employees were paid an average of $96,182.81 from 09/01/2009 to 08/31/2010. The Ohio Education Association’s fiscal 2010 report to the Department of Labor lists 235 employees – nearly half were paid in excess of $100,000.”

Like I (Michelle Malkin) always say, people in fat-cat infested houses shouldn’t throw stones…

Ohio Average Pay, 2009

  • Private industry worker: $40,128
  • Government worker: $45,246 ($5,000 more than private industry)
  • AFSCME Council 8 employee: $57, 269 ($17,000 more than private industry)
  • AFSCME Local 11 employee: $67,625 ($27,000 more than private industry)
  • AFSCME Local 4 employee: $83,485 ($43,000 more than private industry)

Keep in mind, these characters pay themselves with money taken from the government workers they represent… and they don’t produce anything but tired class warfare propaganda.

2010 AFSCME Local 4 (Ohio Association of Public School Employees) Top 10

  • Joseph Rugola, Executive Director: $243,712.00
  • Gary Martin, Associate Director: $202,712.00
  • Charles Roginski, Regional Director: $161,885.00
  • Tom Drabick, Director of Legal Dept: $154,584.00

2010 AFSCME Council 8 Top 10

  • R. SEAN GRAYSON, GENERAL COUNSEL: $130,315.00
  • TERRY M REED, ORGANIZING DIRECTOR: $128,975.00
  • THOMAS J RITCHIE, FIELD SERVICES DIRECTOR: $127,293.00
  • SALLY A POWLESS, REGIONAL DIRECTOR: $111,654.00

  • MICHAEL D BAUER, REGIONAL DIRECTOR: $108,637.00
  • ROBERT A DAVIS, LEGISLATION/POLITICAL DIR: $108,418.00
  • JOHN J FILAK JR., STAFF REPRESENTATIVE: $107,785.00
  • ROBERT L THOMPSON, REGIONAL DIRECTOR: $107,475.00

As of publication the Department of Labor doesn’t list the 2010 report for AFSCME Local 11, which is why that trend line ends at 2009 on the chart.

 “If Ohio’s public union members hang by a thread, why do union bosses take so much for themselves? If overpaid private industry entrepreneurs and investors are the root of Ohio’s fiscal troubles, why shouldn’t Ohio taxpayers be concerned about six-figure union salaries?…For organizations solely dedicated to their members’ well-being, Ohio’s AFSCME affiliates throw money at most every leftist cause in the state. Council 8, Local 11, and Local 4 have given more than $4.5 million to Ohio Democrats since 2001. Progressive think-tanks are frequent recipients of member dues, too – in the past five years, $124,000 went to Policy Matters Ohio and $10,000 to Progress Ohio. No one should be convinced by AFSCME’s claim to the moral high ground; least of all the public employees who keep their racket in the black.”

Your Race Card has been DECLINED!

Your Race Card has been DECLINED! Reasons for the decline: ABUSE, FRAUD and IGNORANCE of OWNER of said card!

I am sure we all remember the Little Boy Who Cried Wolf; the little boy tending sheep was soooo bored that on numerous occassions he cried wolf just to get the village peoples attention. Big Issue about falsley crying wolf? One day the wolf did come and no one came running to the little boys cry of wolf.

So goes the race card: this card has been thrown around so many times and for so many reason that it has become virtually IRRELVANT.

Why?

“You didn’t vote for Obama because you are RACIST!” (98% of the black population voted for Obama, does that make them racist towards the white candidates using this same logic?)

“You disagree with Obama because he is black, therefore you are RACIST!” (The blacks who disagreed with Bush and Chenney or any other white politician for that matter, were they therefore RACISTS using this same logic?)

“You compare Obama to a socialist, therefore you are RACIST!” (Were those blacks who compared Bush and Chenney to Hitler or Stalin therefore RACISTS?

“Not enough black people in golf, tennis, swimming or MLB, therefore those sports entities are RACISTS in nature (never mind that there are more blacks in the NFL and NBA compared to their respective population. Technically there should be more whites and Hispanics in the NFL and NBA, but there are not)!

“You did not hire me because I am black, therefore you are racist!” (ignoring the fact that the person they hired has a Masters Degree to your high school degree, experience and professional to your lack of experience and showing up for an interview in jeans and a wrinkled shirt)

“You will not let illegal aliens stay in America with no consequences, therefore you are RACIST!” (the fact they are here ILLEGALLY should sum this up, but so much for common sense!)

“You are RACIST because you will not let illegal aliens use our welfare, medicaid, medicare, food stamps, housing, criminal justice and education systems even though they are here illegally and never paid into said systems!” (Again, the fact they are here ILLEGALLY, costing LEGAL US Tax Payer over $100 BILLION per year should be a valid enough reason!)

Etc…etc….etc…….


US National Debt = $14.2 Trillion

As of April 15, 2011, the National Debt for the United States = $14.2 Trillion. Where does our debt lie? According to Democrats we spend the most money on Defense, however according to the GOVERNMENT’S own numbers we spend 50%+ on ENTITLEMENT Programs: Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, Welfare, Food Stamps, Housing, etc.

David Prosser Winning in Wisconsin

 

 

David Prosser speaks at an event. | AP Photo

David Prosser leads his challenger by 7,316 votes out of close to 1.5 million votes.

 

UPDATE April 21, 2011 @ 11:21 CST

RECOUNT will probably show that Justice David Prosser probably actually won by 20,000 when they get done with the voter fraud in Milwaukee and Dane counties!

After the state finalized the totals on Friday, Prosser declared victory, and, at a Monday news conference, he urged Kloppenburg to bow out without requesting a recount. “The result of the election is not in doubt,” he said Monday. One of his aides said that Prosser had scored “a strong enough win” that Kloppenburg ought to drop out, adding to that “to ask for a recount in any form will be enormously costly to the voters of this state.”
JoAnne Kloppenburg arrived at the state Government Accountability Board’s office in Madison barely an hour before the 5 p.m. local time deadline by which she had to ask for a recount or concede defeat. According to the vote count finalized by the state last week, she trails Justice David Prosser by 7,316 votes out of nearly 1.5 million cast in the April 5 election.

In an April 15 story about the Wisconsin Supreme Court election, The Associated Press erroneously reported the state would bear the costs of a recount. Local municipalities and counties would cover the expense, not the state.

The board’s director and general counsel said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that the recount process will begin next week.
UPDATE April 13, 2011 @10:15pm CST:

Now the left is interested in free, open and accurate elections. Welcome to all of you.
 

BTW….a reporting error to the media is not a crime. It is an error. And it highlights the need for educated adults to give those involved with tabulating, reporting, and verifying the votes the time to do their jobs. Assuming that your favorite media outlet ‘calling’ the vote for your political hero of the day is the final word is irresponsible!!!!

With less than two more days left to certify the April 5, 2011 election results, Justice Prosser is still ahead of the UNION backed Liberal Opponent Kloppenburg. Prosser currently leads Kloppenburg by 6,948 votes according to JSOnline Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

For the UNIONS whining about the huge win Prosser picked up in Waukesah County, which is a VERY HUGE Repubican county anyway, Prosser said he has no issues with a recount for validation.

“If you need to do a recount in Waukesha (County) and Waukesha (County) alone to satisfy heightened interest, that’s fine,” said Prosser campaign manager Brian Nemoir. “We believe it will only affirm the margin of victory we now enjoy.”

 

Election must be certified by April 15, 2011.

 

UPDATE April 8, 2011 @4:52pm CST:

According to JSOnline in Wisconsin, debating whether or not the 7,500 votes are “fishy” here is at they have found:

In short, before the “adjustment,” Waukesha County was a big outlier. It showed by far the largest drop-off in turnout between the 2010 race for governor last fall and Tuesday’s judicial race (from about  63% to 37%, for a decline of 26 points). After the adjustment, the drop-off is still one of the biggest in the state (from 63% to 42%), but not freakishly so. The statewide drop-off in turnout rate was 16 points, from 50% to 34%.

Here are the top 10 counties (out of 72) in Wisconsin, ranked by turnout of voting-age adults on Tuesday, using the new adjusted Waukesha County totals. Again, this is based on still unofficial returns:

Waukesha ranks fifth. Last fall it ranked second among the state’s 72 counties.

 

 

UPDATE April 7, 2011 @5:20pm CST:

JSOnline in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is reporting that Prosser GAINS 7,500 votes in Waukesha County

Madison – In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release new vote totals giving 7,500 votes in the state Supreme Court race back toward Justice David Prosser, swinging the race significantly in his favor.

The Waukesha County clerk’s office has told state elections officials that they will be adjusting the vote totals to give incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 new votes, said Mike Haas, staff attorney for the state Government Accountability Board.

“Waukesha will be adjusting their vote totals by 14,000,” Haas said the Accountability Board was told.

The numbers will add some 11,000 votes for Prosser and some 3,000 for Kloppenburg, he said.

 
Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI)

Sit Back and Enjoy the Re~Count because Wisconsin in 2008 had close to 5,300 Fraudulant votes……

UPDATE April 6, 2011 @ 2:40pm:

#1. Military ballots have NOT been counted YET!

#2. The Wall Street Journal is already reporting on the voter fraud via crazy voter laws in WI still in place. According to a 67 page report file in 2008 by the Milwaukee Police Department:

 The report found that in 2004 between 4,600 and 5,300 more votes were counted in Milwaukee than the number of voters recorded as having cast ballots. Absentee ballots were cast by people living elsewhere; ineligible felons not only voted but worked at the polls; transient college students cast improper votes; and homeless voters possibly voted more than once. The report found that in 2004 a total of 1,305 “same day” voters gave information that was declared “un-enterable” or invalid by election officials.
WI Supreme Court REPORTING 99%
  David Prosser (inc) 739,886 50%
  Joanne Kloppenburg 740,090 50%

As of 2 pm, David Prosser and Kloppenburg are neck-and-neck for the only State Supreme Court seat up for re-election. Considering how slim the lead is, 204 votes we can expect a massive recount and verification process.

Question: Will this turn into an Al Franken where mysterious ballot boxes show up? Were all voters legally allowed to vote in WI? College kids, are they registered to vote in WI legally?

Hey-Just saying as we know what thugs the UNIONS are!

Breaking News: Jimmy Hoffa showed up to vote for Kloppeburg……Hey, ACORN was there what did you expect? LOL….

Recount Laws in Wisconsin:

Either party can request a recount

They must submit their request within 3 days after the election has been closed and explain where they want the recount and why

If the vote difference is no more than 1% then the person requesting the recount does NOT have to pay the recount fees. If the vote difference is more than 1%, then the person requesting the recount MUST pay the recount fees.

Snagged this from a meida site, heaven forbid they be neutral and sohw both Candidates versus the Liberal one only, but here is what they have:
