Another Self Medicated Politician

If there is any doubt as to how severely and to what extent the "Teflon Don" of Attorney Generals, Democrat Richard Blumenthal; has placated a double standard between his not so ethical portrayal of the People's Attorney and how under his watch he kept shop, one only needs to inquire into the review of his office.

It seems a recent editorial in today's Waterbury Republican Newspaper brought to light some very disturbing and distinct suggestions that Tricky Dicky may in fact have a dual personality malfunction disorder.


The Article is quoted as follows:

"According to the state's auditors, Mr. Blumenthal should have spent more time minding his own store. Their little-publicized review of the attorney general's office found a number of serious deficiencies, if not outright violations of the law, when it came to managing personnel, finances and outside contracts. They found Mr. Blumenthal:

Let subordinates to abuse their compensatory-time benefits.

Regularly failed to deposit large payments to his office within statutory time limits, costing the government (taxpayers) interest income.

Committed a major accounting lapse by overstating more than $360,000 in receivables.

Routinely spent money before receiving authorization or after authorizations had expired.

Exceeded contractual limits on payments to outside attorneys and then regularly made those lawyers wait for their checks, some for as long as two years. (Maybe if Mr. Blumenthal pushed his more than 300 assistant attorneys general a little bit, he could spare taxpayers the additional expense of hiring extra legal help to handle his hyperactive caseload.) For his part, Mr. Blumenthal offered excuses and rationalizations to pardon his mismanagement, none of which he would accept if they came from a business he was intent upon suing."

It is no surprise that Blumenthal has made a 20 year habit out of traveling around the State and Nation seeking out each and every opportunity he could for his overextended 15 minutes of fame as Connecticut Attorney General. His adventures have included but were not limited to: testimony in Washington, actively entertaining parade watchers, impromptu news conferences announcing what windfall judgments he obtained against evil corporations [despite the fact that the truly guilty were let off easy ie: Ameriquest Mortgage], swaying public opinion favorably in his direction by addressing civic organizations, actively attended political and union rallies, lying…er ah "misspeaking" about his heroism that wasn't in the Vietnam War and let us not forget helping to close the doors of a local computer shop at a cost of several millions of dollars to Connecticut Taxpayers and so on and so forth and so whatever else double standard politicians seem to do these days.

The simple fact remains that for 20 years the pompous Mr. Blumenthal has spent two decades as a legalistic dictator that demanded companies large and small across Connecticut and America run their entities in a manner he demanded without any flexibility for the slightest grace for unintended error. At every opportunity, he morphed into a publicity seeking opportunist in an attempt to make himself ever so known to Connecticut households as the seeker of justice who routinely ran down each and every person who opposed his not so noble causes. While it is clear that Mr. Blumenthals actions as Attorney General are reprehensible and double natured in principal, virtue and fact, there is a greater issue at large which requires every clear thinking voter in Connecticut to consider.

Mr. Blumenthal is a byproduct of what all failed politicians have in common: The Establishment, much like Senator Dodd, Harry Ried, Ross Garber and the rest of the corrupt clan; they have nothing to offer their employers the taxpayers. As a result, their double standard lifestyle of government has resulted in choices that are clearly contrary to the good of the people, serving only to oppress them. Rather than advance freedom and democracy while aiding fundamental moral and economic growth, they the willing have disgraced themselves and the reality of what is right and true.

As a result, we the people have suffered greatly and as such experienced the unintended consequences of another self medicated politician.

The Fundamental Purpose of Life

There is a stark reality that exists wherein those of common sense are separated from all others. I would ask one to forgive me on my choice of words, but that would imply I was ashamed of my position which is not only a foundational truth from the beginning of time, but accordingly would imply that I have doubt in my position, both of which is something as those that know me best will affirm never happens.

As for me, if I am to speak on a particular issue, I will do so with complete confidence that my position is correct, carefully reasoned in my own mind, and well thought of prior to a justifiable conclusion. I have no interest in political notoriety, public approval or anything else that derails them from us. In fact my only interest is to join my fellow Americans and bring this country back to the wonderful place it was first intentioned by God for it to be and recognized by our founding fathers as the necessity of its success.

It is no surprise to anyone that times are tough. People are losing their homes, jobs, cars and American dream while those who have been placed in the highest trust of We the People have usurped their integrity for greed and power which truly isn't.

The problem is as clear as it could be and no one should make the mistake of failing to see it for what it really is. I can assure everyone that I agree that high taxes, increased spending, far reaching effects of government, attempted social and economic designation of races and the ill fated plot of solving every problem by the throwing around of money are a serious and catastrophic threats to our lives, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Never the less however, after great contemplation and deliberation I have searched and searched for the solution to each and every issue that we face today.

I have come to the conclusion that although the above are a very real and apparent threats to our cities, towns, states and nation, within themselves they are merely unintended consequences of the true and immediate problem, which if continued to remain unchecked will without any doubt ultimately destroy what so many have died over the years for to save; our freedom.

You see, those each and every one of us have elected into office are the real problem, democrat and republican alike, no matter what their affiliation; whether incumbent or party establishment. They are the problem, period. They are a group of ill intentioned misfits that have been devoid of a life or real purpose and have thus sought to fulfill their shortcomings by placing sufferance on us, the ones who placed our trust in them and their corrupt ideals in the first place.

To each and every one of them that failed, neglected or otherwise refused to have compassion or encouragement for their fellow man, they hijacked the noble purposes and intent of welfare for a lifestyle of enslavement that only serves to aid them in their never ending power grab at job security. For others, those of them that are unable, unwilling or just inadequate in successful achievements within a capitalistic economy, they seek to regulate and tax business and corporate America into some fairy tale monster whose only breath of life is the fantasized creation in which they first made. Others of them have become forgone conclusions of failure by the mere fact that campaign on a platform that is not only impossible to achieve but is quite truthfully the greatest example of self failure anyone could ever demonstrate.

Whichever one they may be at this point, the simple fact remains they must leave, either willingly or by choice of the people. In doing so we will not only purge ourselves of inadequacy, but simultaneously advocate the fundamental purpose of each and every purpose of life we were created for, the return to the natural morality of success. Won't you join me today?

An Economic Wardrobe of Sorts

As a child, one of the greatest fairytales of all time was the Emperor’s New Clothes. For those of you who do not remember, "The Emperor's New Clothes" was about two weavers who promise an Emperor a new suit of clothes invisible to those unfit for their positions or incompetent. When the Emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all!"

Well here we have it. “Companies are spending again, and that could mean better economic times ahead.” an article reports.

It seems that businesses are investing more money in machinery, computers, steel and other metals in three of the past four months and the liberals are salivating at their mouths. There is the appearance of economic growth in the second quarter and the hope that this in turn may lead to more jobs later this year. Always hating to be the bearer of bad news, I would suggest not rejoicing so fast.

Although the left is quick to give their Messiah Obama the nod of financial nobleness and quickly claim a victory over this War on Recovery, a revelation of Economic Wardrobe is about to unfold.

As is always the case, the liberal agenda in a never ending fantasy; fails to remember its shortcomings and economic failures which are the unintended consequences of its Economic Flavored Kool-Aid.

The numbers are out once again, and a realistic dissection of what is really taking place will reveal the stark reality that the worse is yet to come. You see even though the rate of layoffs slowed last week, the fact that the number of people seeking first-time jobless benefits remains about the same as in January. Add to the equation that the unemployment rate has been stuck near double digits all year long while consumer and businesses alike continue to remain cautious about spending and one can surmise that the truth is a foundational warning of the coming days.

Let us go back for a moment to Economics 101: In order for an economy to recover from a recession, which is nothing more than a mere correction of the Free Enterprise / Capitalistic Market when clear thinking Americans finally catch up with liberal Government and Union greed that ultimately fueled the excessive taxes and reckless spending, there must be a realistic opportunity for businesses to grow and expand. That opportunity can only be brought out by cutting taxes and encouraging growth in the private sector so that job creation may take place and consumer confidence can return.

Given the above scenario, one only needs to look at the revelation of truth that there remains stubbornly high levels of unemployment requests for jobless aid as the indicator that hiring remains weak. As hiring remains weak, economic recovery is nearly unattainable, period. Looking shortly beyond the liberal spin, one can only conclude that the economy in fact is falling far short of a recovery.

Being as President Bush’s tax cuts expire on December 31, 2010, main stream and Corporate America alike will all face substantial tax increases. This of course will cripple the already fractured and bankrupt U.S. Economy. Not to worry though, as the Economic Flavored Kool-Aid is continued to be poured out, the partakers of fate will no doubt declare that Emperor Obama has a new Economic Wardrobe. Of course those of us lacking common sense and overflowing with incompetence will be unable however to see them.

Taxable Deductions That Merely Exist

The liberals and the ACLU are certain to be in a conflict with their common sense based on a proposed example of clear thinking by Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican. It is a rather impressionable revelation of intelligence Sen. Hatch has had, which I might add is something that has been devoid within the Senate establishment these days.

It seems Mr. Hatch proposed last week that people endeavoring to collect unemployment benefits and/or those seeking to benefit financially by the rest of us hard working taxpayers via Welfare, be required to exert the ability to sustain a clean drug test before they can receive benefits, something I believe would be in every taxpayers best interest.

It is a fact that far too many Americans have succumbed to the dangerous and comfortable lifestyle of dependency that the cocktail of drugs and federal entitlements have fostered. Recent studies indicate that 70% - 90% of all child welfare expenses are a direct result of adult parental drug addiction, how comforting.

Sen. Hatch suggests such a system would save money and reduce the deficit, presumably by virtue of withholding benefits from those who fail drug tests. Although many clear thinking Americans agree with Sen. Hatch’s proposal, but for very different, moral and logical reasons.

If one were to search our U.S. Constitution, it would be very apparent, even to the most far reaching liberal that nowhere is it mandated that financial assistance is a "Right". In fact only the Godless left wing liberals have turned the noble design of welfare from being a hand up to a handout lifestyle. With that being said, one has no other choice but to ascend to the fundamental truth that financial assistance to the “impoverished” is a privilege that is afforded by each and every hard working American Taxpayer that is ready willing and able to take personal accountability for not only themselves and their family, but for those that their hard earned tax dollars support.

As such, it goes without saying that someone who is a receiver of these benefits should in no way be allowed to participate in the illegal act of substance abuse, period.

Although the liberal spin accuses "We the nasty clear thinking populace" of seeking only to hurt the children, the stark reality is a home fostered with tolerated drug abuse is a greater evil inflicting harm than any conservative value of common sense could ever be.

Unless and until the general populace confronts the enabling evil combination of poverty, entitlements and drug addiction for what it really is; a lifestyle of entrapment by criminal design, We the People can expect nothing less than taxable deductions that merely exist.

Mentally Deficient Non Law Abiding Citizens

It is the solemn duty and fundamental purpose of government to protect its people by providing the maintenance of basic security and public order, unless of course you err on the side of ill judgment and cast your support in the direction of illegal law breakers.

Arizona Senate Bill 1070, is the nation’s toughest bill on illegal immigration that aims to identify, prosecute and deport illegal immigrants. The law is also the broadest and strictest immigration measure in generations, making the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and gives the police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.

The law was in response to rampant crime by illegal people illegally immigrating to the United States from Mexico. Said crimes are ongoing and include drug trafficking, rape, murder, car jacking and whatever else it is illegal people seem to want to do.

Of course even before Gov. Brewer signed the Bill, Resident Barrack Obama criticized it in a feeble attempt to collect political capital in the defense of common criminals. In fact, Mexico’s Foreign Ministry responded in a statement that Mexico was worried about the rights of its citizens and relations with Arizona. How good is it to know a country such as Mexico is so concerned about the safety and welfare of it’s criminals.

It is now announced by Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer that a fund raising campaign is being utilized in order to create a private legal defense fund to represent the state in legal challenges to its new immigration law. This naturally is in response to the obvious slew of lawsuits that will inevitably follow, as is always the case when those engrossed by misjudgment and moral contradiction choose to stand up and be counted.

Gov. Brewer launched a new website, which links to a state-hosted domain where supporters of the controversial law can donate to its legal fund.

What strikes me as incredibly appalling is not how Arizona is facing these numerous lawsuits over the law from both inside and outside the state, with such challengers to the law to include the Department of Justice, but rather at what lengths people will go to defend common criminals.

In countries such as Turkey, Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran, if one is found to have entered the country illegally they are detained, imprisoned and in rare cases executed. In the United States of course, the liberal bleeding hearts choose to defend the common criminal and criminalize those that defend the law. As far as one can tell, these actions are from mentally deficient non law abiding citizens.

A Furthered Permissable Act of Corruption

We have here again, a great misfortune for each and every one of us that hold a bank account or credit card. In it's never ending attempt at socialism, Congress is seeking to overhaul the financial rules in the name of nobleness that truly isn't.

While there is no doubt that the financial industry has it's own misgiving's in it's legal robbery of We the People, I hardly find the ties of some politicians writing the law less than most uncomfortable for any clear thinking American.

A slight glimpse into the never ending grab of freedom and liberties reveals that the legislation is the most ambitious rewrite of financial regulations since the Great De­pression. Of course our ill fated bureaucratic pin head leaders allegedly aim to prevent a repeat of the 2008 financial cri­sis that propelled the economy into a deep recession.

One would think Lawmakers would have realized that it was their greed and ignorance is what brought the economy to it's knees by proportionate amounts, but given their repeat of failures past, it is highly doubtful.

It is precarious to me how people like Sen. Chris Dodd, whose wife, Jackie Clegg, serves on the board of CME Group Inc. has the audacity to end his tenure of corruptible leadership in such a fashion. But there and again we are talking about Chris Dodd, a "Teflon Political Don" so to speak in his own mind.

You see CME Group is a little known company to We the People, but has managed to spend at least $2.9 million since January 2009 lob­bying
on federal is­sues that include the financial regulation overhaul.

Interestingly enough, CME Group, formed when the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Chicago Board of Trade and the New York Mer­cantile
Exchange merged. It's obvious and apparent morph at greed is excessive and rightfully so. CME is the world’s largest futures and op­tions exchange and as such, it has a huge stake in the overhaul.

Exchanges charge a fee for processing trades, and under the legislation, derivatives traders would have to execute over-the-counter swaps through the exchanges. CME has opposed that requirement, putting it at odds with the Sen­ate bill.

Clegg received $153,219 in compensation from CME Group last year, divided be­tween cash payments and stock awards, CME filings with the Securities and Exchange Com­mission show. Clegg’s CME
stock was worth $252,642 as of the end of 2009, the latest date covered by Dodd’s new personal financial report dis­closed Wednesday. Since then, she’s ac­quired more CME stock.

We the people need not fear though as we have been reassured that Clegg “has never been lobbyist and has gone above and beyond to en­sure that her work remains ab­solutely independent of Senator Dodd’s work, including person­ally hiring an ethics attorney to review her work,” Dodd spokesman Bryan DeAngelis said in a written statement. How comforting. One can be sure that the Dodd's never speak of business in their natural course of marital bliss.

Although this is not the first time Dodd has had a personal - financial connection to an industry he’s taken a lead role in regulating, it is a greater slap in the face of those that he represents. Accordingly however we can be assured of this. The pattern of greed by the liberal democratic majority is far reaching in respect to the financial liberties We the People face.

Whether or not the permissible act of corruption remains is dependent on whether or not honest, hard working people of ethics are elected to replace the corrupt incumbents. Given the party establishments slate however, this hope of true leadership is of course is non existent.
As such, the status quo of a further permissible act of corruption remains.

Half Baked Economics

If there is any doubt as to the disconnection of the electorate from the stark reality of a grossly super sized government and the unintended consequences of trying to be all things to all people, one only needs to look at several Connecticut commu­nities that have been voting in favor of substantial property ­tax increases for the upcoming 2010-11 budget season.

It is inexplicable to any clear thinking American how the electorate could be so misinformed and simultaneously unwilling to buck the party establishment. The fact of course that clear thinking Americans are far and few between, is by no account a surprise to those of us that truly know.

Meanwhile, the failed elected leaders have placated the never ending misguided falsehood that reducing any proposed increase in government spending would have such far reaching unintended consequences, that if the sky did not fall it would be by some miracle of Barrack Hussein Obama himself.

The majority of the tax and spend politicians, along with their union partners have brought mystical illusion to a new level by publicly demonstrating the illogical argument that failure to support their budgets would leave local com­munities with a devastated police and fire department and a grossly understaffed school system. As if the bureaucratic red tapers need any further assistance in the expansion of their red tape dispersion in the name of public nobleness.

Here in Waterbury, the not so intelligent Board of Alderman flaunted a mere 30 something dollar per month increase to the average homeowner to support the never ending increase in bureaucrats and whatever may be the increased direction that bureaucrats take. The mayor himself has decided to depart his wealthy self from the embarrassed and pathetic condition he has allowed this city to take, forgetting at all costs the elderly or unemployed taxpayer on a fixed income that will now have to choose between dinner and a date with the taxman.

I myself attribute this lack of common sense to be proportioned equally by two accounts.

The first being that people are so naive and blatantly careless with their trust that they foolishly believe the resounding off election year falsehood that these budgets are so bear boned that the term "last best chance" seems somewhat non existent. In doing so, people unknowing become so deceived by the excessively sentimental mental cases of tax and spend politicians, that they fail to realize that their complaints of big and over reaching government is virtually unheard when they fail, neglect and other wise refuse to just say no to the never ending increases.

The second sin of reality is far greater than the first, whereas community minded people mutate from activist to those challenged in common sense who unintentionally support the very cause they first stood up against however boldly it contradicts the founding belief of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

In the mean time, people may talk until they are blue in the face about tea parties, tax revolts and replacing the failed incumbents that just don't get it, but the simple fact remains if people can’t or won’t control the excessive growth of taxes and government spending in their own small cities and towns, how can one possibly have the reasonable expectation to get spending under control in Hart­ford or Washington?

Unless and until conservative principals are not only embraced but mutate from the exception to the rule Connecticut cities and towns share the same fate each and every municipality, state and ultimately that of the country share: The extraordinary circumstance of becoming a super power who's greatest strength is it's inability to support itself, which of course is half baked economics.

A Matter of Incidental Importance

I myself must attest, I am quite surprised at the general populace. As the economy continues to spiral downward, my fellow taxpayers seem to have excelled and redefined the term for having a narrow mind.

As the days evolve, it seems we are not only enveloped by corruption, greed and a horrific display of arrogance; but an equally disturbing inability to relate the huge deficit of common sense by the body of enfranchised citizens in the name of "feel good for me lately concerns".

At stake is the very sanctity of freedom, liberty and well being of the United States and each of us who participate in the cohabitation within it glorious borders.

Usurped by a form of arrogance equated only to that of the most deviant, self indulgent and grossly devoid of righteousness form of people, the stark social and economic realities of today have not been expounded upon in a manner where the average clear thinking American is able or willing to accept what is taking place and in the most extreme cases, about to happen.

At issue is the very core of hard working Americans, each desiring to work, pay their taxes, retain their home and car while taking the path of righteousness and truth so that the next generation of our children can enjoy a greater celebration of a Nation of Godly Principals than we ourselves have.

Just prior to the Great Depression of the 1930's, the Democratic Party was in control. Utilizing wrong actions that were attributable to their bad judgments, the democrats spiraled the country down to a period of time that required the greatest effort of every American to pull together and shore up the vulnerability of the country.

The combination of ignorance and inattention of today by our failed elected leaders certainly threatens to lead us down the same path of certain failure, but for different reasons.

Today, our elected leaders have confiscated a never ending attempt at continual career devotion to their corruptible office by offering a source of life we simply can not afford. Utilizing the mentality of entitlements, they have successfully brought over 40% of people into the bondage of government provided benefits in exchange for extraordinary confidence in re-election. The unintended consequences of the grossly expanded welfare program is a government engineered social and economic class that is devoid of self esteem, confidence or education. At greater odds with the people that receive these benefits are the ones that lead them. Forever failing to advocate a position of a greater state of living, they are un-knowingly enabling the people they seek to protect to remain in the position of ill achievement.

It is a fundamental fact that you can not create a social or economic class of people by offering them something for nothing. The independent truth that a persons sense of self worth is only fully manifested by their own self achievements is ever apparent in each and every Public Housing Project across the lower 48.

With over 40% of American people failing to contribute to society, we now have in place a government that displays the following demonstration:
  1. Far reaching with it's tax system and governmental structure
  2. Deficit spending not because they have under taxed, but rather over spent
  3. Seeking solutions to each and every problem by throwing money at it
  4. Creating a social and economic class of people with entitlements
The continuance of such error will certainly cripple the United States of America as our nation continues to spiral downward and become vulnerable. The greater weakness we now have compared to The Great Depression, is as our elected leaders continue to break the back of this nation our enemies continue to prosper. Something our elected leaders view as a matter of incidental importance.
