GM, Awaiting Aid Verdict, to Idle Plants, Return Jets

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, told the automakers in a letter yesterday that they must provide “a forthright, documented assessment” of their current operating cash position, short-term funding needs “and how they will meet the financing needs associated with the plan to ensure the companies’ long-term viability.”

Pelosi told reporters that even if the automakers fail to make a convincing case, Congress must do something to help them.

Heck, I say send them to their room for a little timeout!

Obama’s ‘Redistributive Change’ and the Death of Freedom

Posted in obama, socialism on October 30, 2008 by eyeon

via Obama’s ‘Redistributive Change’ and the Death of Freedom by Andrew C. McCarthy on National Review Online

“In 1966, with key help from the Soviet Union, the United Nations began promoting a monstrosity of a treaty known as the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). It is chockablock with exactly the things Obama would say government must do on your behalf: provide housing, clothing, education, health care, employment, a living wage that accounts for comparative worth (meaning the government, under the guise of preventing discrimination, determines what you are paid), limited labor hours, paid vacation and holidays, paid parental leave, nearly unrestricted trade unionization, social security (including “social insurance”), “equitable distribution of world food supplies in relation to need,” and so on. This economic-justice compact was so patently socialist that, even at the height of his Great Society and War on Poverty, President Lyndon Johnson declined to sign it. So did Presidents Nixon and Ford. But alas, there is always Jimmy Carter. Thirty years ago, he signed the ICESCR, but it has languished ever since, never ratified. President Clinton lauded the treaty but shrank from prodding the senate, where staunch Republican opposition made the required two-thirds approval margin a pipedream. “

Evidently, the author isn’t familiar with the U.N. Millennium Declaration, which was passed by the U.N. General Assembly in September of 2000, in New York. Sounds like just another name for the ICESCR. 

The U.N. will be one of Obama’s “agents of change”, as he has pledged his allegiance to the U.N. and to implementing the U.N Millennium Development Goals, which are just one facet of the Millennium Declaration. Obama has stated that one of his first actions as president will be to get his Global Poverty Act passed. This bill has been sitting in congress since April ’08, just waiting for Obama and the Democrats to take control.

Investors Business Daily, and others, have published a lot of good info on the Global Poverty Act and the Millennium Development Crap, I mean, Goals:

The Obama World View

Posted in obama, socialism on October 27, 2008 by eyeon

Everyone’s seen this by now. Unfortunately, most everyone is concentrating primarily on the “redistribution of wealth” comments espoused in this interview. I believe the point to be made is how this interview reveals Obama’s blatant disregard for the Constitution, and that the Constitution and the courts will eventually be the means by which this “change” will be achieved:

“…the Constitution…reflected an enormous blindspot in this culture that carries on to this day…” and “…the Constitution…reflected a fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day…”  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11OhmY1obS4)

This is nothing new. Liberals, generally, see the Constitution as a “living” document which should be changed to reflect the societal “norms” of today; that the Constitution, as written, was not intended to to be interpreted literally.

“And one of the I think the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court focused I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change and in some ways we still suffer from that.”

What Obama was saying here is that before they can influence radical change through the courts, they have to mold people’s minds “on the ground” through political and community organizing. “Coalitions of power”. That is the key, folks. They want to MOLD the minds of the American people to see the world like they do. Sooner or later, they believe you will see the benefits of the “change” they are espousing. Be very afraid my friends. This IS what Obama believes and what he means when he talks about “change”. They know this will take some time. As Obama says in every speech he gives: “Change will take time.” What he is saying is that this will be a slow indoctrination. It will not be immediately apparent (other than to the astute and those that are truly paying attention), that our country and our society are in a slow, yet methodical, decline into a socialistic society. They have a pretty good start at the mind-molding effort already. Just look at how many people are showing up at his rallies, nodding their heads as he spews his radical, socialist viewpoints, while trying to sound like a caring, compassionate American. Look at the network of “community organizers” they have slowly developed over the years (e.g. ACORN and others). They have targeted, with great success, one of the largest population segments; young people, whose minds can more easily be molded, and who, generally, have no clue of the real world.

Fudd: “Plenty of rich people we can tax”

Why would any media outlet ask Barney Fudd for his thoughts and ideas on the economy, when he is one of the Democrats responsible for getting us into this mess?? I love this stuff. These type of bonehead statements help us! Keep ’em coming Dems!!
