Obama paints

Don H sent me this.

I think it captures the narcissism in Obamie quite well.

Crookedness at Chrysler

This is unbelievable.

This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon's
Watergate or Clinton 's Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why
was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the
Chrysler Corporation were to be closed? Roll the clock back to the weeks
just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire
financial straights and federal government graciously offered to "buy
the company" and keep them out of bankruptcy and "save jobs." Chrysler
was, in the words of Obama and his administration, "Too big to fail,"
same story with GM.

The feds organized their "Automotive Task Force" to fix Chrysler and GM.
Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named
Steve Rattner to be the White House's official Car Czar- literally,
that's what his title is. Rattner is the liaison between Obama,
Chrysler, and GM.

Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler had made this list
of dealerships. That is not true. The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox
New and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of
dealerships was put together by the "Automotive Task Force" headed by no
one other then Mr. Steve Rattner. Now the plot thickens. Remember
earlier we said earlier that there was neither rhyme nor reason why
certain dealerships were closed? Actually there's a very interesting
pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The
Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection. Amazingly, of
the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government 788 had donated
money, exclusively, to Republican political causes, while contributing
nothing to Democratic political causes. The only "Democratic" dealership
on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary's campaign, and
a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly,
also gave $200.00 to Obama's campaign. Does that seem a little odd to

Steve Rattner, the guy who put the list together. Well he happens to be
married to a babe named Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former
national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such,
she would have access to campaign donation records from everyone in the
nation, Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky
coincidence, we're certain.

Then comes another really wacky coincidence. On that list of dealerships
being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana ,
and Southern Missouri . It seems that Bill Clinton's former White House
Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that
region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson. Johnson
happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge
Obama supporter and financier. These guys own a half dozen Chrysler
stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly,
none of their dealerships were ordered closed - not one- while all of
their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were! Eight
dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson
were ordered shut down. Thus, by pure luck, these two major Obama
supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone.
Isn't that amazing? Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story's
there, and it's in a dozen or so other web-based news organization, this
isn't being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are truly mistaken.
Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the
federal government and the United Auto Worker's union- Fiat owns 20%.
The other 15% is till privately owned and presumably will be traded on
the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn't want to run the auto

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be
the United States of America , it would appear that the president has the
power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000
jobs, just because they don't agree with his political agenda. This is
Nazi Germany stuff, and it's happening right here, right now, in your
back yard. There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but
the "Automotive Task Force" has released no information to the public or
any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done. Keep your
ear to the ground for more on this story. If you've ever wanted to make
a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your
national senator or representative in the House and demand an
investigation on this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, "All that's necessary for
evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Car Czar No More

An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama's Car
Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by
former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom. According to CBS News,
Rattner left "to return to private life and spend time with his family."
Treasure Secretary Tim Geithner said, "I hope that he takes another
opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the
future." By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million
dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York . Uh-oh! But,
we're certain that had nothing to do with his resignation. And,
according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he's being
investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing
of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn't have
anything to with his resignation- that's ridiculous! Like CBS said, this
guy just wants to spend more quality time with his family. Obama has
thirty-two personally appointed "czars" that answer to no one but him,
all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority. But hey,
we're sure they all have "unique skills," as Tim Geithner likes to say.

And the media can't figure out why we're pissed off.

Good advice??

Keep this philosophy in mind the next time you hear, or are out to repeat a rumor.

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance, who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students...?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me, I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Test of Three."

"Test of Three?"

"That's correct," Socrates continued.

"Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to test what you're going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"No," the man replied, "actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second test, the test of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?"

"No, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass though because there is a third test - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really..."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?"

The man was defeated and ashamed and said no more.

This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem.

It also explains why Socrates never found out that Plato was banging his wife.
