Take responsibility for Pete’s Sake

Obama isn’t responsible for the recession or unemployment. He certainly contributed to the problem by supporting Barney Frank and Chris Dodd’s, house for everyone policies but there are lots of people who are culpable. He also failed to understand that markets have to correct when they make mistakes. Democrats think capitalists consider markets perfect. On the contrary, it is their imperfection that makes them work. They have to make corrections. It’s just like going out to eat. Have you ever ordered a dish from a restaurant and not enjoyed it? What did you do? You didn’t order it the next time. It was relatively easy to fix. The Gosplan would have you eating that same dish for five years before deciding to order something else. That may sound like a fare fetched example but its not. You are a consumer spending capital on goods and services. When those goods and services fail to meet your needs you realize your capital was wasted so you adjust. It’s no different than a bank or company running a business. Obama doesn’t get economics 101, so he increases the pain by dragging on the economy by spending money covering up the problem. You can’t afford the house so let’s make a few payments for you. Don’t get me started on “Cash for Clunkers”.

Listen to Obama this week, “There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers…. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM. You don’t go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking at the gate. So all these things have created changes in the economy.” http://www.marketwatch.com/story/obamas-atm-story-cant-explain-slow-hiring-2011-06-16?dist=countdown

“Structural issues”? Seriously? This goes to show who his supporters are. You seriously have to be a complete idiot to agree with that line of reasoning. Amazingly, those idiots are carrying iPhones instead of sending smoke signals. They are driving cars not walking and are wearing polyester not homespun.

Tony Yapias is a criminal too

This guy openly supports illegal aliens.

Tony Yapias

I’ve been watching him on the news for years. Tonight he’s totally in the face of Teresa Bassett who published a list of illegal aliens. He kept saying, “you know you are a felon right!”.

Tony, you are a criminal as well. I bet you could give me a list of a thousand illegal aliens. I bet you aid them on a daily basis. I’m sure you don’t feel the least bit guilty about it because you feel justified. Just like Mr. Bassett feels justified.

My guess is that Proyecto Latino de Utah, helps illegals in the same way that ACORN supports pimps and prostitutes. Think about it? Do you ever help illegals “work” the system?

Tony wants the whole world to bend for Latino’s. He wants the US Government, LDS Church, State of Utah, Public Schools, US Courts, District Courts everyone and anyone who lives and breaths to fall down at the feet of illegal aliens. He reminds me of George P. Lee and his zeal for the native Americans.

I traveled to Mexico earlier this year and was thoroughly disgusted. It is rampant with criminals. You can’t park a car or sit on the beach without someone trying to extort money from you. “If you pay me, I’ll make sure no body messes with your car.” “If you pay me I’ll make sure no one steals your stuff while you swim.” Mr Yapias would claim its the poverty. In fact, it has nothing to do with poverty. I’ve traveled abroad many times to places such as Nepal and India. The people there did not act that way.

I’m not saying Latino’s are criminals. They are not bad people. They are just like every other group. However, Mexico’s society has completely disintegrated. Mexican leaders have thrown in the towel. They expect America to own and solve every problem.

Let me ask a question. How many people do you know that took Spanish in high school? I don’t know the percentage but it’s pretty high. Now, how many Mexican’s in Mexico take English in high school? If you go to Germany, France, China, Japan etc. virtually all kids learn English in school. For Pete’s sake Mexico, just try. Give us something to work with.

Mr. Yapias reminds me of parents who believe their kids can do no wrong. He’s like the over indulging parents in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. You need to expect something from those you are serving. Expecting them to learn English. Demand that they put their Mexican flags away.

Mr. Yapias has received numerous awards from Mexico. How about working with them to clean up their country and earn a few awards from the US.

Supporters of John Edwards

If you were a supporter of John Edwards, I think you need some serious introspection. Besides the fact that his policies made no sense, I could see that he was a phony a mile away. I’m sure to his supporters his affair and the cover-up are very shocking but that’s because your capabilities to make decisions are severely impaired. For me he never passed the “smell test”.

Edwards supporters….think back on your lives. How many times have you been truly shocked to learn that someone was not who they claimed to be? My guess is that if you are honest you will find that once a month you have a V8 moment. If so, you should not be voting in this country.

For Edwards supporters who still think he is innocent, you need a labodamy.

For Edwards supporters who think he is guilty but would still vote for him…you still have Obama.

As for Mrs. Edwards. Don’t for a minute think she wasn’t every bit as hungry for power as her husband.

Hey Muslim World–Where is the Condemnation?

This guy looks nice enough. Unfortunately, he is in the club of the worlds worst dictators.

Bashar Al Assad, Syrian Dictator

He desperately wants to hold onto power. He is using all the usual tricks employed by tyrants. Unfortunately, murder isn’t enough. He’s taking peoples children: torturing and mutilating their bodies in order to keep parents of others quiet.

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. children’s agency UNICEF called on Syria on Tuesday to investigate reports of “horrific acts” of violence against children detained during the current wave of unrest in the Arab country.

The call came after The New York Times reported on Monday that an online video showed a 13-year-old boy, arrested at a protest on April 29, who it said had been tortured, mutilated and killed before his body was returned to his family.

Protests against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad broke out in southern Syria in March and have spread across the country. Human rights groups say 1,000 civilians have been killed and 10,000 arrested in a government crackdown.

In a statement, UNICEF said use of live ammunition against demonstrators had reportedly killed at least 30 children, although it said it could not independently confirm that figure or the circumstances of their death.

The agency said it was “particularly disturbed by the recent video images of children who were arbitrarily detained and suffered torture or ill-treatment during their detention leading in some cases to their death.”

“We call on the government to thoroughly investigate these reports and ensure that perpetrators of such horrific acts are identified and brought to justice,” it added.
UNICEF did not specifically cite the case reported by The New York Times, involving Hamza Ali al-Khateeb, arrested in Jiza, a village near the southern city of Deraa, where the protests first erupted.

Video posted online (link requires a sign-in because of the graphic nature of the images) shows his battered, discolored face. His skin is scrawled with cuts, gashes, deep burns and bullet wounds that would probably have injured but not killed, The New York Times reported. According to an unidentifed narrator, his jaw and kneecaps are shattered, and his penis chopped off.

“These are the reforms of the treacherous Bashar,” the narrator says in the video. “Where are human rights? Where are the international criminal tribunals?”
Relatives told Al Jazeera that the boy’s parents were shocked when they saw their boy, who reportedly spent about a month in the custody of Syrian security forces.

“When Hamza’s mother came to see the body she was only shown his face,” a cousin, who was present at the time, told Al Jazeera.

“We tried to tell the father not to look, but he pulled the blanket back. When he saw Hamza’s body he fainted. People ran to help him and some started filming – it was chaos.”

The reported torture demonstrates a “total collapse” of the Syrian government’s willingness to listen to its people, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“President Assad has a choice, and every day that goes by the choice is made by default. He has not called an end to the violence against his own people, and he has not engaged seriously in any kind of reform efforts,” she added.

“Every day that goes by the position of the government becomes less tenable and the demands of the Syrian people for change only grow stronger,” Clinton said.
UNICEF reminded Syria Tuesday that as a party to the 1990 U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child, it was bound to ensure children’s right to life, to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, and protection from violence, exploitation and abuse.

It said the government had a primary responsibility for the well-being of those affected by the unrest and a duty to ensure continuation of basic social services.

So where are the leaders of other Muslim nations on this? Saudi Arabia? Iran? Kuwait? Malaysia? Anyone? Bueller?

Silence is acceptance.
