Oh the leftist cry and the leftist moan and the leftist whine… well there’s nothing new about that but one of the things that bothers them now, is that we on the right have so much UNWARRANTED disrespect for the office of the President.

Yeah, seriously, like they have no remembrance of how they treated Bush. But… Bush isn’t their leader, so they are butthurt that people don’t respect Obama. They say that we lie about him.

To my knowledge the only one who has disrespected the Office of the President is our current President. I mean, Clinton was getting blowjobs but Obama is just screwing everybody from the Oval Office.

So, I asked them to make a list of the lies and this is what I got…

There is a post on FB about President Obama committing treason because he made an address that was aimed mostly at the Iranian people. There are the lies about congress being exempt from ACA. There are the lies about his being Muslim. There are the lies about his allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate his presidency. Do I need to go on? The easy thing to do is look at FB.

OK, so I reply…

People did not lie about the ACA. They quote the bill that was released. The bill that was passed was never released until after it had been placed on a different bill number and passed without being released. Most people do not understand what happened. Yes, some try to mislead. The bill did exempt them from the ACA and only after public outrage was it changed.

I find it strange that you feel the need to defend him against the charge of being Muslim. His step father was Muslim, he grew up in a Muslim country, he went to a Muslim school and practiced the Muslim religion. I wonder how anyone could believe that he could be Muslim? I guess that if you attend catholic school and go to mass that we should assume you to be Jewish.

As to the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama has supported them all along. Congress votes no to supporting them and Obama and Kerry still give them money, he invites them to a meeting at the white house

But lets be honest about his religion. If he’s Muslim, I don’t know and I don’t care but no one can deny that he spent 20 years sitting in a Black Liberation Church and his views reflect that that attitude toward both America and to white people.

As for speeches, there is no telling what he will say.

Now you picked out some nut jobs from the right but lets deal with real life and not facebook life. I use facebook as a source to find news; a meme is not a news source.

Question… Did Obama bring each of these things on his self? He was been his own worst enemy in covering up, not knowing and attacking the other party. Do you think that he did not know that Hillary had a private server at her house and was hiding the emails that had been requested by congress?

Find anywhere that Bush attacked the people on the left. It didn’t happen. He still doesn’t criticize Obama when all Obama has done is blame bush for

And the answer is NO!!! Obama did not bring anything on himself, he is a perfect angel and that we just don’t like him because we’re racist.

Now Before I lay out a few things on the King … I mean Obama… please read this short link. It puts into words what many of us have felt from the beginning of the Obama Presidency.

On the campaign trail we heard such gems as “I want to fundamentally change this country … I think that it’s good to spread the wealth around.” How about this one… “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

His wife says “For the first time in my adult life, I’m proud of my country.”

Obama is the first President to be elected for insulting the people and wanting to take their money

He is the first President to appoint an admitted Communist to be a Czar.

He is the first President to go to war with a TV station.
He is the first President to have Christmas balls with pictures of Mao Zedong hanging in the White House.
He is the first President to force the resignation of the CEO of a major company.

President Barack Obama was sworn in on Jan. 20, 2009 and in less than 1 month crammed through the $832 Billion Stimulus with zero republican votes and against the wishes of the majority of Americans. Remember the president remark when asked about bi partition support? I Won!!!

It was a failure by every matrix.

My first, half page spread, letter to the editor was published in the Index Journal on the Stimulus.

He began the illegal gunrunning scheme Fast and Furious, getting border patrol agents killed, hiding evidence from Congress to protect Holder.

By March the President is pushing Cap and Trade.
He is following through on his plan from 2008 when he said So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted. Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”

So he picks a guy to be Sec. Of Energy who in 2008 said that Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” Well OK then. Gas was only $9 a gallon there, so with that and electricity, that will really help the people who are on hard times.

Politifact looked it this comment and…

Gingrich, March 20: Of course… you know that. He has said it himself. Chu, his secretary of energy, said in 2008 he wanted gasoline prices in America to get to the European level, which is $9 or $10 a gallon.

Did Chu really say that? Yes, but he said it before he became energy secretary and before Obama won the 2008 presidential election. Shortly after becoming energy secretary, Chu said it would be “completely unwise to want to increase the price of gasoline.”

Well he said it before Obama won and picked him, so that doesn’t count. That’s good to know.

The President then went on his around the world apology tour. While he did not actually apologize, ( Politifact said that they were not “true” apologies) he did a very good job of talking our country down. The people do not forget.

Obama structures the bankruptcy of Chrysler to give Unions a majority share and screws the investors.

And all of this damage happened in just 3 months of him taking office. It’s still spring time

But comes summer

August 2009 was a wonderful time of facing the democrats down as they thought that they were going to make people happy about healthcare. Nope, That didn’t work. So, instead of listening to the people the weasels just stopped having meetings. Yeah, that’s the ticket… Just keep the doors closed.

I say that Barack Obama brought all of this hardship upon himself with his outlandish liberal ideas, divisive behavior and attitude toward anyone how doesn’t agree with him. Remember that he makes the statement about the republicans that “He will not negotiate with terrorist.” When nothing gets through he crys bout obstructionist. How dare they interfere with the King?

Got a little off track there but during the summer meetings, a lady nailed flip flop Sen. Arleen Specter. Looking him dead in the eyes and said, “You have awakened that sleeping giants.” And they had. Obama and his pet weasels had achieved something that no one had done. They awoke a large group of people who knew absolutely nothing about politics.

You cannot learn politics overnight. I have followed it for 35 years and don’t get fooled but some of these people fell and still fall for the most insane things. Now these Obama giants came from both the right and the left, full of piss and vinegar with no clue of what is going on.

If their response to questions are, Bush lied, birth certificate, fox news, Muslim, Koch Bros. Racist, greedy… you are dealing with a giant that is dumb as dirt.

The giants are the fault of Obama. He created them himself so all I can say is suck it up.

I never got out of 2009 and into his real corruption but I believe that this clear that where theres Obama, there’s fire.



One week ago, Monday October the 27th was the 50th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s speech; A Time For Choosing. We could change some numbers around and his speech from 1964 would resonate with the same impact today. Allow me to lay out certain parts of Reagan’s speech for clarity and also for those who simply will not bother to read or even listen to the recording.

Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are? I had someplace to escape to.” And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there’s no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.”

This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves. 

You and I are told increasingly we have to choose between a left or right. Well I’d like to suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There’s only an up or down—[up] man’s old—old-aged dream, the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. And regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.

In this vote-harvesting time, they use terms like the “Great Society,” or as we were told a few days ago by the President, we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people. But they’ve been a little more explicit in the past and among themselves; and all of the things I now will quote have appeared in print. These are not Republican accusations. For example, they have voices that say, “The cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism.” Another voice says, “The profit motive has become outmoded. It must be replaced by the incentives of the welfare state.” Or, “Our traditional system of individual freedom is incapable of solving the complex problems of the 20th century.” Senator Fullbright has said at Stanford University that the Constitution is outmoded. He referred to the President as “our moral teacher and our leader,” and he says he is “hobbled in his task by the restrictions of power imposed on him by this antiquated document.” He must “be freed,” so that he “can do for us” what he knows “is best.” And Senator Clark of Pennsylvania, another articulate spokesman, defines liberalism as “meeting the material needs of the masses through the full power of centralized government.” ”

I’ve showcased a good bit, so, I’ll skip to the end.

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

Sadly, America did not listen… So here we are, standing at a cross road in this short term experiment called America. The problem with being at this cross road is simple. We can’t turn left or right, up or down is no longer a choice that we get to make. We have boxed ourselves in and left us just one way to go… we can only move forward on the road that we are already on.

That road looks stormy indeed. How did we end up traveling on this road, you ask? Easy answer, lack of knowledge and lack of understanding. There is a meme out that sums up our current state of being “If you believe that voting Obama and the democrats out of office will save America… then you haven’t been paying attention.”,

You say, “wait a minute. The liberals are dragging us into socialism.” Yes they are but the only difference between the leftist and the right is the speed that they are traveling. The destination is the same. While Barack Obama said the he wanted to fundamentally transform America, the truth is that the process began the day the country was founded and he’s just coming in on the tail end.

So, is the Gunslinger telling you that we’re doomed; that we’ve come too far to reverse and right the ship? Yep, that’s what I’m saying. I’ll be voting tomorrow with the knowledge that nothing is going to change. I’ll vote in 2016, knowing that nothing is going to change. I mean really, My leftist friends think that I just bust on Obama. He has no leadership abilities, no understanding of how the world is and absolutely no common sense. He is a disaster that is happening right before our eyes.

BUT, I don’t see a republican out there with leadership abilities, understanding or common sense anywhere. Take a look at the people who fell for Ron Paul and fell for Obama; the people want a leader… but there’s not one to be found. As with Mitt Romney, our choice in 2016 will be between two losers that will continue the downward spiral. Now… listen while I tell you why all is not lost.

I am and have always been a pessimistic optimist. That is how my life has always been, The worst that can happen, will happen. But it’s OK. In the end I not only survive but thrive, grow and move forward knowing that I can face whatever comes.

We the people have chance, not to save the country but to guide the country and decide how fast or slow the end comes. That probably doesn’t sound like a good thing to you but it is. Think of the end of your own life and think of how important that ability would be. Fast or slow? Long or drawn out? The choice is yours.

I’m old, fat, crippled up, deaf and can’t see well. So what, I’m still the Gunslinger and I vote for quick. Life is hard and it’s time for hard men to make some hard decisions. Do we drag it along for 20, 40 or 50 years? In the 50 years since Reagan gave this speech we have watched miracles in technology move the world at a fantastic pace yet the human spirit seems to have peaked and is now in decline. Our government, all government from the local and state to federal is out of touch and out of control. Our police have became the military. No need to worry about Posse Comitatus when the local cops have tanks and machine guns.

What will happen in the next 50 years? I don’t have clue but do we just leave it to chance? Do we hope the our children and grandchildren will be fine while we bicker over things that are happening whether we want them or not. The writings of Thomas Paine have guided me more than any other Founder. The simple words, “If trouble must come, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace” should stir every man to look forward and say “I’ll make a stand.”

Here in Greenwood County, we have millions of of unused tax dollars sitting around from a 1% tax that was to do repairs on the dam, repairs that we then found out weren’t needed. So what does the County do? They have a unanimous vote to add a 2% hospitality tax on food and drink.


Instead of making money, we cause them to lose money. Save every tax penny that you can. While it would be close to impossible go tax-less we can consciously control what we do pay. Liberals love to boycott things especially non liberal things. I’ve never boycotted a company but I will boycott the government. It would hurt a lot of businesses but that would just give the liberal government what it wants.

Starve the politicians. Yeah everybody talks about the big money players but most of the money comes in 10’s and 20’s from everyday people. Not one penny for any politician. We stop fighting. I’m never going to stop pointing out their stupidity but if the people want a liberal government, I’ll let them have a liberal government. Give them what they think that they want and in the end all they will have is pain.

The United States Constitution is the greatest governing document that the world has seen but it is not a sacred document sent from Heaven. Lysander Spooner summed up the flaws when he said that we have the government that we have because the Constitution allowed the things or was not strong enough to prevent them from happening.

Starve the beast, all of the beast, stop fighting, pain is a great motivator. Be ready to step up after the fall and put a strong government in place that can return faith to the people.

Love and Service

Alan Peppers ~ The Gunslinger.

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”

Thomas Paine, Dissertation on First Principles of Government, December 23, 1791

I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.”

Thomas Paine, The American Crisis, No. 1, December 19, 1776

Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Let me talk a little bit about guns. Now a word to my liberal friends; drop the talking point “common sense” when talking about the school shootings and such. There is no common sense way to deal with madness. It is just something that can be repeated over and over to make your ideas sound good. No one is falling for that………Now

I grew up and still live in the semi rural south. Growing up, there were no gun cabinets, no gun safes, most people just propped their guns against the corner of the fire place and kids didn’t bother them. What has changed?

How did we go from a nation where guns were not given a second thought but had very few gun deaths, to a nation where guns are shunned but kids are dying all over the place? Popular thought is that if you can hide the gun, don’t let kids see it, teach them to run away, that they will be safe. It seems as if the opposite is true.

I was raised around guns. There is an old 8mm movie clip that was made when I was about 6, where I’m leaning against my father and shooting a 12ga. shotgun. In the early 70’s if my friends and I wanted to go squirrel hunting, the only way to the city limits was marching right through the middle of town carrying our shotguns and 22 rifles. No one cared. People would wave at us as they drove by, no one called out the SWAT team and locked the town down. During hunting season you could find a gun in over half of the cars at the high school. Dropping a knife in your pocket with your change was as natural as putting on your shoes.

What happened? Guns didn’t change. Knives didn’t change.

I raised my children around guns. My son has since raised his children around guns. During the 80’s I did a lot shooting. I shot Bulls Eye, Silhouette, Combat with pistols and Bench Rest with rifles. Never did much with shotguns except play with them. Saturdays were reloading day so that we could go and shoot on Sunday. Most Sundays we would meet at my house, everybody would get their gear out and there would be all kinds of guns everywhere. My children never bothered anything. Why?

I drug my daughter around from gun show to gun show and range to range from the time she was a toddler. By the time my son was born, my shooting was slowing down but he went to his share too. If I happened to buy anything, the first thing that I would do when we got home was to ask my children if they wanted to hold it. If they weren’t interested they said no but if they said yes, I made sure that it was unloaded and just handed it to them. I didn’t make deal of it. Usually after about 4 seconds they would give it back and go about their business. Their curiosity was satisfied.

I never had a problem with them getting even a BB gun when they weren’t supposed to because they knew that if there was something that they wanted to shoot, all they had to was ask. Nothing was hidden.

If you try to hide something from a kid you will send your child hunting for whatever they think you have hidden. If you tell a child not to touch something, it will have little finger prints all over it. That is what kids do and no one can change that. They hunt and they find and there they are holding a gun in their hand. Is it loaded? They don’t know. Is the safety on? They don’t know. Is it single action or double action? They don’t know. They put their finger on the trigger and they can’t pull it back so they play, they don’t know that by pulling the hammer back that it now only takes ¼ the pressure to pull the trigger. And a child dies simply because, they didn’t know. But they should have.

Now, lets talk about Rauch’s favorite scapegoat, the mentally ill, rampaging dangerous criminal. This is from facebook.



Everybody wants to talk about statistics. How many this and how many that and they never want to talk about what the statistics show.

What is the number 1 cause of gun deaths?

Suicide...In 2010 suicide accounted for 62% of of all gun related deaths.So out of 31,076 gun deaths, 19,372 were due to suicides.

How do you feel about suicide? Do you support abortion? Do you believe that a person has a right to their own bodies? While suicide is tragic for the families and so pointless, can it be described as preventable? Does having a gun cause a person to commit suicide? Of course not.

When it comes to unintentional gun deaths, the above mentioned children, the careless hunters and such, there were 606 deaths in 2010.I have to keep repeating myself that I see all deaths as tragic and I don’t want to be seen as just minimalizing these deaths but this is the same number of people that froze to death in the United States in 2003. Where is the outcry? Where are the hundreds of millions of dollars that could possibly save some lives to stop people from freezing? It’s not as politically useful as dead children. The shame is that through education, most of these deaths are preventable.


Now we come to the big boy, homicide.

In 2010 there were around 11,000 gun homicides out of a population of 310 million. I don’t know what that percentage is and it really doesn’t matter. The number is very small.
I make it plain that I support the 2nd amendment as a codification of a God given right.  I believe in constitutional carry and that what weapon a person has is none of the governments business, so now let me give you the kicker… I don’t carry a gun, I’m not licensed to carry because i have no reason to carry a gun and I don’t want to carry a gun. Being a man with a big belly and no ass at all, it;s hard enough for me to keep my pants up now without a gun pulling them to my knees.

The reason that I don’t feel the need to carry a gun is simple but it is something that both the left and the right get wrong. The chance of random violence is miniscule. Murders are committed by friends and family.Gang on gang, drug dealer on drug dealer, they seem to keep to their own.  If something does happen you have a better chance of being shot by the police rather than Rauch”s crazy criminal.

Now let me give you the deal. If there is a person that I’m afraid to see walk down the street with a gun, that is a person that I;m afraid to see walk down the street period…
Why is a dangerous, mentally ill felon walking down the street? The government has completely failed the people when the people are left at the mercy of predators.

As Jefferson wrote in his draft of the Virginia Constitution,  “No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”Now that is keeping with the constitution. Whether on probation, parole or completed sentence, a person is released upon the population because they are free. They have been returned to society. If a person has been judged unfit to own or carry a gun because they are a danger to themselves or others, what the hell are they doing letting that person out? Remember the signs that store used to have up about armed robbery? Get 25 years at hard labor without parole if you rob this store, turned into 18 months and they are unleashed back on the population.

As usual, the government has it’s role completely reversed. It’s job is not to control guns to protect the people, it’s job is to control the people that are a danger to others. That is a job that it can do but no, we;ll push the law abiding people and turn the criminals loose.

If I don’t want to carry a gun, why do I fight for the right so hard? I have children and grandchildren and while they may not come for peoples guns tomorrow, what are they going to do in 50 years? Over the last 50 we went to kids being hauled to jail because they forgot about a fishing knife in the trunk of their car.

The liberal mantra seems to be now, now, now. My job is to do what I can today to secure a future for others after I’m gone. A stand has to be made and now is the time to make it.

I’m going to close this with a couple of quotes and a couple of pics that you may find interesting…




I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace. ~ Thomas Paine

“The science of government it is my duty to study, more than all other sciences; the arts of legislation and administration and negotiation ought to take the place of, indeed exclude, in a manner, all other arts. I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry and porcelain.”

Have you ever had one of those days when you just need to rant; to pitch a little hissy fit and get something off your chest? Well I’m having one and I think that the best thing to do is just to go ahead and let it out.

Now a lot of people aren’t going to like what I have to say, so I’m going to say in advance that I really don’t care if you like it or not. If you don’t like it you may need to look at yourself pretty hard.

Recently, to my surprise I came across this article about Greenwood S.C. putting up surveillance cameras everywhere. Notice how they called them “Security” camera’s but they in fact do not secure anything, they simply spy on people.

Barrineau said, in applying for the CDBG funding through the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the city noted it would install security cameras as part of the project.

There is a section of the grant application that reads as follows: 

As a public safety feature, the city will install hardware and software to support a color PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera system with infrared capability. The system will allow for future expansion for more cameras and will include monitoring capability along with record and playback features. This system will be an affective policing tool during outdoor events.” 

About $10,000 has been budgeted to meet this grant requirement.

Barrineau said the cameras will be installed to cover large public gathering areas — around the Veterans Monument and Uptown fountain — that are within the project area of Oak and Main.

We will also be using the camera system to deter potential vandalism to the South Carolina Festival of Flowers topiaries,” the city manager said.

In addition, Greenwood City Council has budgeted $25,000 in the 2014 local hospitality tax budget to expand the initial number of cameras.

Barrineau said the distribution of additional cameras will focus on topiary locations and highly traveled pedestrian areas frequented by residents and tourists.

Also, Barrineau said the Greater Greenwood Parks and Trails Foundation has funded cameras to be installed at West Cambridge Park and Magnolia Park. The city manager said the Uptown cameras and park cameras likely will be installed in coming weeks.

Feeds from the cameras will be maintained by the city’s information technology department.”

So, you can’t walk down the street in uptown Greenwood without being tracked by local NSA or master spy or what ever the hell they do because of plants. OK.

I posted a little piece on this and then went about my business. Yesterday, I happened to see the local papers headline and it was “Greenwood considers stop-and-identify law.”…

WHAT!!! Just who the hell do these people think they are and who comes up with these insane ideas? Two council members voted no but the Mayor, the City Manager and 5 other council members are stupid enough to think that this is a good idea.

Of course the online news is just a teaser, you still have to go and buy the hard copy to much information but don’t worry; I sprang the 75 cents for the paper.

According to the proposed ordinance, no person who is in a public place shall refuse to disclose their name, address or date of birth when requested by a law enforcement officer who reasonably suspects the person is committing, has committed or is about to commit a criminal offense.”

Reasonable suspicion, yeah right, we all know how that works. And don’t you like the part about the psychic cops? If they know that you haven’t committed a crime but that you are about to, shouldn’t they be able to pull your name address and birthday out of the cosmos? This is just 1 level below a stop and frisk law where they can just throw you to the wall and frisk you for walking down the street.

Now here’s a doozy from the paper… “ Nothing in the ordinance requires a person to answer any question beyond providing their name’, address and date of birth. Also, nothing in the ordinance authorizes a police officer to arrest anyone for not providing information beyond their name, address or date of birth or for refusing to describe the offense they witnessed.”

WOW… silly me… in all of my years, I always thought that the 4th amendment of the United States Constitution protected me from arrest and now after heading on 60 years I find that it was the Greenwood city council all this time. Who knew?

Now why do they want to stop and identify? Well they claim that is for officer safety. Bull shit… Do you know how stupid that sounds? You see the law is actually pretty clear on this.. If you break the law, the police can arrest you. Simple right. If you have not broken a law, the police can not arrest you and your name, address, date of birth or what color drawers you have on is absolutely none of anybodies business. Simple right? Small town nazi’s on the march if you think otherwise.

What the hell is wrong with these people?


I almost forgot the plan… You can take stupid people and point out how stupid their plan is but unfortunately they are too stupid to understand. So, here is what needs to be done… You take the Mayor, the City Manager and the 5 council members and anyone else who support this and every time that they step out of their house, somebody needs to be demanding their name, address and date of birth… over and over and over. Follow them through the grocery store though Walmart, walking down the street, driving their car… Hey what’s your name?… What’s your address?… What’s your date of birth? Line up and when one gets tired another steps up and the relentless questioning continues.

Make them regret the day they ever came up with this stupid idea….


Here’s a meme that I ran across and had to comment on. The lack of basic math ability still amazes me. Then you have this one cat talking about his college economics professors and they undoubtedly can”t do math either. Last we have the one who doesn’t believe me and decides that it is all because of “Corporate greed.” For about the 10th time I have asked a lefty to explain what corporate greed is and Bam, they’re gone, never to speak again.

After this post, I’m going to share Henry Hazlitt’s –  Economics in one lesson. Since this is not a novel, I’m not going to start at the beginning but show 3-4 chapters that are pressing at the moment first. This book could have been written yesterday.

For what Ive gathered from my own economic professors, to what studies Ive seen on the internet.. Probably look at 100 million AT MOST lost… But then you gotta figure.. How many of those people with new raises are gonna turn right around and take their family to Mcdonalds? Honestly.. From my own figures.. Im guessing Mcdonalds is gonna loose out on anywhere between 50-80 million. But when your making 4-6 billion a year.. What does it even matter?
        Pamela Sue And of course Mickey’s will get a bigger tax break & even more incentives. The important thing is that many Americans will have their foot on the botton rung of the climb to self-sufficiency & prosperity.
        Alan Peppers If each McDonalds pays $19.95 per hour more and there are 14000 McDonalds that = $279,300 per hour x 16 hours = $4,468,800 per day.
        Now $4,468,800 per day x 365 days = $1,631,112,000 per year.
        And yes, that is $1.6 BILLION and you’re talking about 1/10 of 1 % of the CEO’s salary.

        Please learn basic math.

        Russ Schleicher Alan that is 1.6 billion into the economy a great protion of which they will have spent there.
        Alan Peppers Do large corporations and rich people keep their money stuffed in a mattress? No, they spend it and invest it which keeps the money in the economy. You can’t take $1.6 billion out of the economy, turn around and put it back in the economy and call it a gain.
        Milton Strumpf Alan, the wealthy do NOT spend it. Give someone who makes $290 a week a raise to make $404 a week and they WILL spend it, generating more profits for businesses. Someone making $1 million/year a raise to $1.1 million, they will mostly just bank it. That’s been proven over and over throughout history. We have the lowest tax rate on the highest earners in history. Corporate profits are the highest they’ve been in years. It’s time to reign in corporate greed. And remember, people making so little survive on government benefits and assistance. So let’s stop giving places like McDonalds corporate welfare they don’t need and make them start paying their workers like they’re supposed to.
        Alan Peppers Explain to me exactly what “corporate greed” means.

I came across this meme today and thought that I would do a little checking of the facts, so here it is…


Now anyone who followed me during the last election cycle knows what I think of Paul Ryan. He’s a big government republican who doesn’t know how to spell conservative. He’s been the number three man in John Boehner’s clown posse for years and i hope you get my point. But… I’m one of these odd people that kinda likes the truth and this isn’t exactly it.

It says that Ryan supported raising the minimum wage when Bush asked for it but under Obama he claims that it will cost jobs. First off, President Bush NEVER asked for the minimum wage to be raised. Both the House and the Senate were controlled by the Democrats and this was their plan all the way. All that George Bush had to do with it was that he said that if they sent him the bill, that he would sign it. And he did.

Next we have Ryan’s own words about supporting the increase but did you notice how he qualified his support by tying it to cuts in the small business tax? He basically said yeah, I’ll support it if we credit back the money paid to small businesses. Guess what happened next, they left off the rest of his platform. No… they wouldn’t do that would they?

Here is his quote from the meme…  “Last year, I supported an increase in the minimum wage because it also included tax relief measures for employers to offset the cost of the proposed minimum wage increase.” This meme was created from a Think Progress story and the story did tell the truth begrudgingly while still trying to spin it,

“A ThinkProgress analysis finds that at least 67 Republicans who are still in Congress today backed an increase in the minimum wage in some form, including Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI).”

Farther down we find…

“Though Ryan ultimately voted against the measure, he argued that he supported raising the hourly rate as long as it came with a suitable “offset” of small business relief. “Last year, I supported an increase in the minimum wage because it also included tax relief measures for employers to offset the cost of the proposed minimum wage increase,” he noted in a floor speech, as he announced “with great regret” that he could not back the bill without more small business tax cuts.”

Wait a minute, wait a minute… He voted NO… With George Bush as President Paul Ryan voted no to the increase and because he says no to Obama he’s a hypocrite. Really…

Now let’s talk seriously for a minute. There can be no comparison between raising the wage in 2007 and raising it now. Look at the unemployment numbers, look at the work force, look the economy, then and now. We have never recovered. Obama talks about all of the jobs created but we have less people working today than there were in 2008. So someone could vote yes in 2007 and vote no today simply because the economy can’t take it.

One last thing… Post Hoc Err Prompter Hoc… because of that, this.The democrats minimum wage increase went into effect July 2007, July 2008 and July 2009…. and can anyone think of something else that happened over that same two year period?

I’m not a smart man. I’ve never been to college, never got high grades. I cannot do algebra but I’m pretty fair at old-time basic math; adding and subtracting and so on. Another thing that I can do naturally is to notice things that are out of whack, a form of intellectual OCD.

So, here I am reading through the Daily Kos, a left leaning web site, when I see that the House Republicans and Democrats had compromised on the Farm bill and cut $8 Billion from Food Stamps over a 10 year period. Ok, now here is what caught my attention, The Daily Kos claims that this will effect 2 million people, that it will cut $90 a month from the benefits of 850,000 families.

And my OCD kicked in.

Have you noticed what’s wrong? I didn’t check their math but I’d say that it’s right… but it’s also wrong. Their number is based on 2 million people, 850 thousand families; where did they pull these numbers from? There are now 47 million people receiving food stamps, not 2 million.

So to cut $8 Billion over 10 years is a cut of 800 million a year. Divide by 12 and you get a 66,666,666 cut per month. Now we again divide that by 47 million and the cut is… $1.47 cut per person per month.

I guess they are really large families. Now, I’m not making light of the cuts but how can we ever do anything when people lack basic math skills.
