My buddy's rants

This is a couple emails my buddy sends out. I DID NOT WRITE THIS. I am just posting it here to see what others think.
Most of you know I follow politics. Not the die hard, not the “oh this is popular” bandwagon either. I have my beliefs, as do you. Here is my view on some things:
Celebrities endorsing politics in like saying porn stars are real actors. I would like to see the bank accounts (all accounts) and see who was paid to endorse President Barrack Obama. Why is it that only (from what I know) Democrats have celebrity endorsements? You can not sit there and think that Ben Affleck, Robert Di Niro, or George Clooney didn’t get paid to endorse President Obama. He wants to raise taxes on them, technically he has by letting the tax cut expire a few months ago. Never believe a celebrity that is speaking about a politician, remember they are paid to say something other than what they think.
President Obama is not the son of an immigrant. He is the son of a man with a student visa. He didn’t have the rough poor life people think he had. He attended private schools and colleges, Ivy League at that. Sounds like a rough life so far. The guy openly used alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine. Yeah, cocaine remember the hell W caught for using it. Why not Obama? Oh because he’s black; first he isn’t black, he is half black, half white, raised by white people. Second, what high school kid can afford cocaine? A privileged one can.
The man lacks experience, and has a video on youtube saying so himself. He spent more than half his time in the Senate campaigning for President. He didn’t even vote 24% of the time he was in the Senate, and that does not count the not voting, or present voting they allow. Yet reporters (MSNBC) say “He is a great politician, and man that knows what he is stepping into.” How in the hell can you stand there and support a guy that didn’t do his job 24% of the time (its more than that if you count his campaigning for President and vacation). If he was such a good Senator, why then did he only sponsor 121 bills? Now out of 121, 115 didn’t even make it out of the committee, now out of the 6 that did 3 were passed. 3 bills, make you a great candidate for President? Oh, I forgot, he was a “Community organizer”, when he really only did it for 3 years. Because when you sit on the board of directors it’s like being a General in a war zone, yeah your there but you aren’t fighting anything but sleep, weather and hunger.
Health care Reform well lets look at Canada, the UK, and the liberal left’s favorite country France. All of there health care…failed. Sure the health care system in America isn’t perfect. But, no one is denied emergency medical attention. You have a cold go to Walgreen’s, if we have socialized medicine everyone with sniffles will go see a doctor rather than buy some nasal decongestant. Look up what Texas did to there health care in 2006 or 2007. Lowered cost, and improved service. Getting rid of mandates will help health care not hurt it. It makes no sense to blow the building up, to fix a leak in the roof.
Immigration, well Mexico is not that only issue. I will say that first. However, it is the primary gateway for illegal immigrants. A few years ago, US Customs and Border Protection release stats saying that in 6 months they detained people from over 148 countries. I went to college with a girl from Iran that came here illegally through Mexico. I believe if you fix immigration you can lower drug trafficking. Also, I think that to improve revenue in Mexico and the US, we should have a US/Mexico canal from California to Texas. It will cut off the tunnels that Nancy Pelosi (one of the richest politicians) said was inhumane to block or blow up. I guess she needs staff for her San Francisco restaurant. I understand the ‘American Dream’ that people come here for. However, this is not 100 years ago we have rules, laws and processes for a reason. America is not the solution to the world’s problems. Now, with Sonia Maria Sotomayor who is a racist God knows what is going to go down.
Gun control, well he supports banning handguns. He believes that laws will control firearms. Well look at the early 1900’s. You could buy and have shipped to your front door any gun you wanted, even assault rifles (and let me clear up the term assault rifle. They must meet 4 requirements: It must be an individual weapon with provision to fire from the shoulder. It must be capable of selective fire, that means safe, semi, and fully automatic. It must have an intermediate-power cartridge: more power than a pistol but less than a standard rifle or battle rifle. Its ammunition must be supplied from a detachable box magazine) like an M16A2 Service Rifle. But the Firearms act of 1932 changed all that and I have to pay $200 in a transfer tax for a suppressor that already cost $450 thank you big government. Again, with Sonia Maria Sotomayor, who knows what is going to happen.
The Economy…ok basic math applies here. If I make $2,000.00 a month but spend $2,000.01 I am financial irresponsible. Now, if I am in $10,000.00 in debt and I spend money, of that spent money; 46 cents of every dollar is borrowed, and of that 46 cents 23 cents is borrowed from my enemy. I am an idiot, and my dad should have pulled out. That makes about as much sense jacking off with steal wool as a lube. Spend money to make money that applies to business. If I ran a for profit business I would apply that phrase. I am speaking of government not business. I pay taxes for my borders to be guarded, clean water, military/emergency services, and roads. Things like “cash for clunkers” is what will cause the USA to fall like Rome. Why does Congress need new aircraft? What the hell is wrong with Delta, Southwest Airlines? I meet Newt Gingrich on a flight from Atlanta to D.C. Maybe if we had them pay for there own transportation they wouldn’t use such nonsense. I believe that we will never have a balance budget until we can see every penny that our Congressmen and Senators have. If they get a payoff, busted, if they make a bribe busted. Where is the honesty in politics? You want to fix poverty? Have you ever heard of a poor man giving another poor man a job? No, the rich man gives the poor man a job. Give the rich there tax cuts back and watch the world change. I am in favor a flat tax, fair tax concept.
If you are so worried about the damn environment why doesn’t every Federal Building have solar panels or wind turbines? I think drilling for oil in Alaska is better than paying countries that harbor terrorist and countries that just plain hate us. Nuclear is a good plan, the liberals beloved France draws 70% of there power from nuclear power. What are you thinking about?
This country was founded on Judeo-Christan values. The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America has been misinterpreted. The law was written to stop the Government from establishing a National religion and from the Government from telling you where to worship, or whether you need to worship at all. If you can not understand the morals that the Bible is talking about, than you should not try and buck the system. Marriage is a religious ceremony, not just Christian based ones either, so why would gay and lesbian couples, who are historically atheist want to partake in a religious based ceremony?
Why are there double standards in the country when it comes to race? The Black Panther party is ok, the Ku Klux Klan, bad. They have the same agenda When it was the Black Panther party member standing outside voting centers in November 2008, and threatened the welfare of white voters. When a white man calls out a man from another color, one of the first things that is said to the white man, is, “you’re a racist.” It’s funny, because classifying me as one, shows ignorance on your part. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are by far the worst thing the black community can have speaking for them. Louis Farrakhan is worse. But think about this, why is it when one of those three are wrong, they never publicly apologize? Racist don’t apologize. And I will say it, black Americans need to move on from 230 years of slavery, no one alive today was a slave. The Jewish, the Irish, and the Scottish have moved on, you all should as well. Of the 12 million African sold, not taken, sold, only 400,000 ended up in the United States. The rest went to Brazil. My great, great grandfather owned slaves and his grandson marched on Washington with MLK. Stop using a race as an excuse for your short comings in life. I don't.
That it is the government of the people, by the people, for the people. Not people of the government, for the government. Our elected officials should be held to a higher standard, have term limits, and be made to work 20 years in the federal government to get retirement. Their health care should be supplied by the US Military, and I think a requirement should be (for any federal job) that you have to serve at least 8 years as an enlisted Military member (coast guard is DHS, not DOD so they don’t count).
As you know I will always have something to rant about. Like I always say; some of you will not read this far, and those that do will not respond. I welcome negative and positive comments.
