Ronald Reagan is back and he is you

Ronald Reagan is back, and he is you

 

Friends, conservatives often complain that no one has ever risen to take the place of Ronald Reagan in our government.

But Ronald Reagan is back, and he is you! His spirit has never once left us.

His spirit was alive and well when you stood up last year and opposed the bipartisan amnesty bill that you knew the Gipper wouldn’t approve.

He was here again today in our Congress during the vote that failed to pass a bill that would have made slaves of every one of us and ended free market capitalism forever in the USA.

Fox News said legislators received 999 calls out of 1,000 opposing the bailout. Fox commentators didn’t look too happy about that and the results of today’s vote. I imagine many of them, like Neil Cavuto, are heavily invested in stocks. (Isn’t it interesting that, although almost 100% of us oppose the bailout, Fox News continues to drone on about how important it is for the taxpayer to foot the bills for the crooks in government. Looks like conservatives have broken with their task master).

I realize that the stock market does not like this, but look, I have stock too, and I know that if we show these lazy pandering politicians we won’t let them enslave us, our children will grow up in a better, safer world.

And it won’t happen again!

Letter to Congressman Platts and Sen. Arlen Specter

 

As you know, the current financial crisis originated with the Democratic Party in 1977 when Carter’s Community Reinvestment Act passed. Then Clinton strengthened these provisions by making it mandatory for banks to lend at least $1 trillion in subprime loans. At that point, this ideologically driven effort to provide “affordable” loans began driving up housing prices drastically. But corrupt community organizing agencies like ACORN and La Raza didn’t seem to mind that their constituents now had to pay more for homes they couldn’t afford in the first place. The present administration more than doubled Clinton’s quota, and the HUD web site currently carries a paragraph on Bush’s “zero downpayment initiative.” Conservative sources are lamenting that Bush had repeatedly asked for more oversight during his 2 terms and called for tighter regulations. Yet it looks like the President, in complete agreement with his friends across the aisle, actually was OVER-regulating on the side of wealth sharing (is that the new Republican way?). It might be wise for you to keep away from this malodorous situation by voting against ANY bailout. I checked around Wrightsville and have yet to come across anyone who has an extra $10,000 to fork over to a government that mismanages our money or who believes it is government’s job to own and run businesses Soviet style.

(I followed this up with phone calls)

Thank you.

 

 

 

Letter to the National Association of Realtors

 

NAR email address (attn. Mary Trupo): mtrupo@realtors.org

 

Hello Mary,

I saw this at the NAR web site:

“The National Association of Realtors® supports the ongoing bipartisan efforts to address the current crisis in the financial and secondary markets. While we await further details and will continue to be active in helping to shape the legislation, NAR believes these efforts are imperative to restore market liquidity.”

Unfortunately, I infer from this that your organization is in favor of the current bipartisan efforts to make tax payers responsible for what you know the government caused in the most callous and cynical possible manner.

I say that because I saw an entry at the NAR web site some years back that asked the government for more fiscal responsibility in the management of subprime loans and in regulations requiring banks to issue them.

That tells me that you saw this financial crash coming.

Now that it is here, your response seems chillingly impersonal, almost surreal.

Where is the anger? You saw it coming. Now you are coolly requesting a bipartisan effort to bail out the mortgage banks as if the blame lay with irresponsible borrowers, when it was government-backed lenders and the very politicians you now ask to control the financial market who caused this debacle. There was genuine concern reflected in your letter to the administration, asking for a relaxation of the risky experimental government requirements under the Carter administration’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) and the Clinton and Bush administrations’ insistence on forcing banks to issue ever higher-risk loans. It was like a destructive test of a boiler.

You knew that the lending institutions eventually would fail under these policies and you took the initiative to ask them to stop. But now that the disaster is here, you are expecting them to pass the loss on to those of us who pay our bills on time. I understand your fear, but I don’t understand why we the taxpayers, most of whom pay our bills on time, can be held responsible.

I am asking your organization for a stronger condemnation of the failed bipartisan policies that foisted dangerous subprime lending practices on banks and Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac. Tell the media that you, as business people, knew this policy was doomed to failure, had warned the government about this, that the blame goes to both parties, and that you are leery about leaving the fox in charge of the hen house, particularly since the proposed plan threatens the free market like nothing ever has before in American history.

If you are silent now and fail to condemn these failed lending policies and put the blame where it belongs, on both sides of the aisle, then there is no way to avoid a repeat of this bitter experience for you, your clients and every American taxpayer.

Please issue a press release condemning the reckless policies that you watched destroy your industry! And please do not pass this one off on the taxpayer. It will surely come back to haunt you.

Best Regards,

Don Hank,

Editor in Chief

The violent overthrow of America

Donald Hank By Donald Hank

Three of America’s enemies are positioning themselves to enter the White House, where one will continue the siege initiated by George W. Bush.

Hillary hates us because we didn’t go to Harvard.

The Obama’s hate us for our color — red, white and blue.  Barrack H. (don’t ask what it stands for) wants to be our first red president.

John McCain doesn’t hate us.  He just doesn’t know — or care — that we exist.

We are like the Travelocity gnome about to go over the falls.

Conservatives have always thought the left was planning a bloodless takeover of the US.

Takeover yes, bloodless, hardly.

The left sprouted in the bloodstained soil of France, coming to maturity in Russia and later China and elsewhere. Whenever it took root, millions died.

How will Americans die?

We’re already dying.  We just don’t associate these casualties with the left, partly because we can’t agree on the definition of a person and partly because the Bush administration managed to pull off a leftwing coup without being identified as a leftist.

But what is globalism if not neo-communism?  Old-fashioned Communists robbed rich people and gave to poor people, making nations poor.

Postmodern Communists rob from rich countries and give to poor countries, making the world poor.

Where’s the violence, you say?

There are 2 forms of violence due to leftist activism. The most obvious is abortion, which has produced as many casualties as Hitler and Stalin. The other form is more subtle and requires some explanation.

First we need to realize that when leftist historians report on events like the French, Bolshevik and Chinese Revolutions, they excuse the violence, saying the leaders were noble but participants got out of hand. Voila, no such thing as intentional leftist-generated violence. Just collateral damage.

Stefane Courtois and comrades, authors of The Black Book of Communism, the itemized tally sheet of the Left’s casualties (about 100 million by their count), are unrepentant leftists, who think leftist ideology can exist independently of violence. They envision a kinder gentler Marxist utopia in the future.

The mantra that killings in leftist regimes are not attributable to ideology works like a charm.  Psychologically, Americans need to believe everyone is good, even brutal dictators.  Thus, it wasn’t hard to convince us of this absurdity. 

Another reason why casualties of the Left are hidden is that the Left has been successful in convincing us that the tilt of government toward “globalism” is actually part of a conservative agenda, alleging that the Bush administration wants open borders because capitalism needs cheap labor.  But if that’s true, why is it Ted Kennedy and Republicans in name only – the Republican left – who most enthusiastically support Bush’s amnesty campaign? 

But the left (Democrats and RINOs) has also succeeded in convincing the public that the alien invasion causes no violence.

Just like “people who got out of hand” in foreign leftist revolutions, many illegal immigrants have “gotten out of hand,” committing violent crimes and killing people in auto accidents (over 9,000 deaths annually from both causes) or through diseases and drugs.

Though shrugged off by the media, these deaths far exceed the American casualties in Iraq that the media constantly rub under our noses. 

But you will argue that these deaths are incidental and the government certainly does not intend to hurt you. But if you buy into this notion that the takeover of government by open border activists has not deliberately caused injury, then why are dangerous illegal aliens released here after serving time?  Why is an INS prison the site of one of the busiest naturalization offices on the East coast?

And how is it that a border guard can be killed by an alien criminal whom no one can extradite while those border guards who defend us are jailed?

Why do politicians oppose deportation when there’s a resurgence of formerly conquered diseases like leprosy, malaria or TB – including the multi-drug-resistant variety – precisely in areas of heavy illegal alien concentration?

How is it that the bulk of murder warrants in Los Angeles are for illegals, and yet the Los Angeles police department isn’t allowed to ask if a detained suspect is here illegally?

Isn’t it obvious that the government actually wants violent aliens to harm us?

What difference is there between releasing an angry mob to kill people in France, Russia and China and unleashing armies of criminal aliens to kill Americans?

Clearly there is an ideology behind this, based on the premise that Americans have too much — not only too much wealth, but even too much safety!  There is more to this than a desire to help the downtrodden.  There is a clear-cut thirst for revenge against the haves.  I had written that Maoism is, de facto, a movement intended not to help but rather to punish.  And our homegrown Maoism has been doing just that for many years.

I can’t tell you how many thousands of dollars I have lost over the years when companies that were then my clients started sending me affirmative action forms asking my sex and race.  Every time I returned one of these, confessing to being a white American male, I lost the client in question.  Every single time. 

Affirmative action wasn’t devised to help anyone.  It was born to punish.  I am in fact fined thousands of dollars every year for being who I am since I was born, and absurdly, my daughter and Hispanic wife – supposed beneficiaries of affirmative action – pay a heavy price for having a father and husband who is – male!

Likewise, if you are a resident of this country, you are being punished for living here.

Even immigrants don’t escape.

A Hispanic friend of ours used to argue that we can’t just deport illegal aliens.  He was horrified when I said we can and should.  He and his wife recently moved to a suburban community near Washington, DC.  She called recently and complained of violent crime in their neighborhood due to Hispanic gangs.  Though mostly illegal immigrants, when they’re jailed, the gang members are eventually released back into their neighborhood.  These friends have four children, including their anchor baby, and they fear for their safety.

They finally get it.

When will we?
