Liberalism is a Disease!! It is called DEBT

Today is Saturday January 17th. 2015. As I type this article the "United States National Debt" of the United States of America has reached a whopping total of $18,079,608,395,519.69 AMAZING!!

That is EIGHTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS. That breaks down to $56,503 PER PERSON!!

When President Obama took office the Federal Debt had reached TEN TRILLION dollars....pretty bad to say the least. People like Sen. Harry Reid and Congress members such as Nancy Pelosi had been quite upset at the debt under the Bush Administration.

Here we are 6 years later. The National Debt has increased EIGHT TRILLION dollars! An 80 percent increase!

The financial publication Forbes projected in 2012 that President Obama will have reached a debt level of TWENTY TRILLION DOLLARS for 2016!

President Obama's Legacy: $20 Trillion in Debt for 2016

Simply put President Obama will have increased our DEBT by 100% when he leaves office. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT!!!

When I see these numbers I ask....Where did the money go?? We are no longer at war (an incredible expense). The military has been "cut back". So just what did happen that is so incredible that our debt has doubled in magnitude??

Why is it the same Congressional Representative and Senators who were livid at the debt under Bush Administration have made NO protests under the Obama Administration?? The debt was bad under Bush and is WORSE under the  Obama Administration. Shouldn't the politicians who were upset before be livid now?? Where is the MEDIA?? Isn't this a story worth covering??

I can only say that yes Liberalism IS a is called  DEBT.

Speak up and speak out people! Ask your Representative "What happened to our money"?? Complacency only allows politicians to raise the debt even further!

God Bless America!

36 DEAD Bankers in ONE YEAR?? Where is the media??

First let me say that very rarely do I cut-copy-paste a story into the Right Wing Rag. This story however is an exception. Thoroughly done and to the point from Zero Hedge I wish to give credit where credit is due.

"Riddles surround 36th DEAD Banker of the Year"

52-year-old Belgian Geert Tack - a private banker for ING who managed portfolios for wealthy individuals - was described as 'impeccable', 'sporty', 'cared-for', and 'successful' and so as Vermist reports, after disappearing a month ago, the appearance of his body off the coast of Ostend is surrpunded by riddles...

Tack disappeared on November 5th...
Impeccable. Sporty. Cared for. Successful. Just some qualifications that are attributed to the 52-year-old from the Belgian Geert Tack Haaltert.

Geert Tack worked as a private banker for ING and managed portfolios of wealthy clients. The Belgian had a lot of respect in the financial world and was known as an up and top professional. His sudden disappearance was also smashed like a bomb. "If Tack himself was having trouble he has managed to keep it well hidden", say colleagues.

Nobody then could have guessed that the man would not return on Wednesday, November 5th to his wife in their villa Vondelen.
and was found dead this weekend off the coast of Ostend...
On December 3, the body was found on the coast of Ostend and removed from the water. The prosecutor confirmed today that it is Geert Tack, but it is still awaiting further results of the autopsy for the exact cause of death. The results of toxicological testing are not yet known.

The examiner states that the body showed no outward signs of violence.
As Vermist comments, he was well-liked and successful but the situation of his disappearance remain odd to say the least...
What makes the matter is that the extra mysterious circumstances under which he disappeared are rather peculiar. Tack had a few weeks earlier his car drove into each other and if the garage then take away a replacement car. Oddly enough, he made it much later, shortly before he disappeared, use. The car, a Renault Espace, has been found in Knokke, but Tack missing to date each track.

Also -  Why he had in the weeks before the disappearance sometimes so difficult to get to sleep? Why he did that Wednesday morning his laptop and cell phone at home?

Although a desperate act can not be excluded, there are also people who take into account that the missing part of a preconceived plan. From his position Tack had the opportunity to be there - whether or not forced by third parties - to run off with money from his clients. It is a hypothesis that being seriously investigated by the federal police, but where colleagues want to know anything.

"Something like that would never do," said one of them certainly. "Geert is a blameless man."

Race Relations, White Privilege, Racism...How to fix it....Yes we can!

First a little about me. I am a white male 62 years of age. During my life I have spent 25 years working each day with people of the Hispanic culture. I worked in a foundry pouring molten metal, in landscaping as a gardener, and in a warehouse in shipping receiving. Each day I was working with the Hispanics. I had a woman from Cambodia who was my "hair stylist". She told me how she and her family came to the United States. At the time they were unable to speak English. They spent time "working in the fields". She finally learned English and how to cut hair. Anyway my outlook toward minorities is different than most white people. (No surprise I really like blond women now....*smile*)

Now some info about American history...very relevant to race relations. Back in the 1500's the United States was called the "New World". Then we were ruled by the United Kingdom. Colonies had just formed in the New World. We were property for a foreign country. In order for the UK to see their property grow in value they had to work it. That required labor. LOTS of labor. UK liked the land in Ireland as well. So the UK says okay we will SELL you labor. UK had people in IRELAND "rounded up" and "transported" to the New World...WHITE SLAVES. This enabled UK to "purchase" Irish land at a pittance! At the same time "labor" (Slaves) were available to help colonize and work the New World. This was known as the "Irish Slave Trade".

To the English rulers this was quite a conquest. Human rights were nothing at that time! As the population of Ireland diminished in size England looked for more "Human Cargo" to sell. Slaves. Aha! Africa!! Filled with people just waiting to be sold. Human rights be damned away went England with their Human Cargo and even more Slaves were sold to the New World.

Slavery at the time was a business....Blacks and Whites were BOTH Slaves working together side by side. In fact at one time there were more WHITE slaves than there were Black slaves. Reason is really simple. Whites were more abundant and easier to come by so they were cheaper to buy. Sickening as it seems that was how the UK ruled their people.

As time went by the New World evolved. We became the United States and broke free of the tyranny of England. The Constitution was written. Amended. Finally after Abraham Lincoln President of the United States signed the "Emancipation Proclamation" the Black people were declared FREE.

So what happened to the White Slaves? They became no more than a bad memory. Shameful isn't it? As for the Black slaves they NEVER stopped talking about their lives as slaves. This is where "race relations" and "racism" truly BEGAN. Time has a way of erasing memories and that is what England seemingly wanted. Put all those dead bodies to rest and forget it ever happened. Left UN-spoken that is exactly what would have happened.

To their credit the Black community never stopped talking about slavery. Now we need to remember the White slaves as well. We need to remember we worked TOGETHER as slaves here in the "New World". The Black community needs to be reminded that they were NEVER ALONE. Bought and paid for yes.....White and Black we made America what it is today just the same!

My opinion of "White Privilege" is a simple one. It is just another way of saying "Racism". Sort of like when people talk about "Global Warming". Now they call it "Climate Change". (I think they just got tired of saying Global Warming during a blizzard) Anyway it is just another name for the same problem. White Privilege is exactly that. Just another name.

I spoke with a friend of mine by the name of Andrea Kaye and asked for her opinion. Being a Cajun gal it was simple. "Control the message control the mind" is what she replied. (Thanks Andrea).

We need to remember what REALLY happened many years ago. How White and Black people were slaves together! How they both sweated and toiled in the fields. How they both suffered for the opportunities we now face. The memories of how we both worked as slaves together may help resolve the feelings of "oppression and racism" that exist.

The "Message" as Andrea put is is simple. We are in this together. We worked together. We were slave-owners and slaves together. Blacks and Whites alike.

God Bless America!

Commentary: The Ferguson Missouri Shooting...what it was and was it Necessary

On August 9, 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, 28, a white police officer of the Ferguson Police Department.

Simple enough isn't it? Now down to the nitty-gritty. Michael Brown had been involved in a "robbery". Furthermore Michael Brown was walking down the middle of the road. That also was a violation of the law. Finally when ordered to stop the Officer was attacked by Michael Brown. The attack left the Officer severely injured and finally the Officer drew his firearm and shot Michael Brown. In the end a Grand Jury acquitted the Officer. Not before however the "Civil Liberties" communities made Michael Brown into a "martyr" of sorts. Why??? Because Michael Brown was BLACK and Officer Wilson was WHITE.

On August 11th. 2014  In Salt Lake City Utah Officer Bron Cruz, who was BLACK , shot WHITE Dillion Taylor once in the chest and once in the stomach after he refused to obey police. Officer Cruz said he believed Taylor had a weapon and intended to use it. No weapon was found on or near Taylor’s body. One big difference in the two cases was officer Cruz was wearing a body camera.

Lastly the Utah cop was cleared of any wrongdoing. No charges against him will be pursued.

So just what is the difference? Black cop shoots white man....NO Media. White cop shoots BLACK man. Media is all over the state for MONTHS and now we are facing riots!

One piece of equipment could have cleared this all up....a body camera.
We have the best court system in the world. But at the same time the LAW MUST be followed! It is foolish to turn a law breaker into a martyr simply because of one persons race! Black does not make you guilty or innocent. White does not make you guilty or innocent. When the LAW is NOT FOLLOWED there will be CONSEQUENCES! Often time they are violent! Simply OBEY the law!! Don't try and defy it!

I want to wish everyone who reads The Right Wing Rag a Happy Thanksgiving!

God Bless America!

Ooops!! They Did it Again.....the IRS has LIED!

A while back Lois Lerner of the IRS was asked to turn over ALL her Email. To make a long story short the IRS has said ALL the Emails have been ERASED. There were NO traces left. None...Zilch...Nada. All gone the IRS says.

IRS Commissioner says IRS owe NO apology over LOST Emails

SURPRISE!!! 30,000 missing emails from IRS' Lerner RECOVERED!!

IRS Lois Lerner also gave Tax-Exempt Status to a UNDER-AGE PROSTITUTION RING!!

So it would seem the sniveling Commissioner who insisted that the Emails were LOST/DELETED was in fact LYING!!

This is NO way to treat the people of the United States of America!! This is no way to act toward Senate or Congress. Yet he did just that. The Emails have been recovered. 30,000 of them!! That is NOT my idea of LOST.

I said this was going to be a short for the impact. The IMPACT is that few people will EVER be able to believe in the IRS as anything other than the tool which it has become.

Hopefully the IRS will focus on it's "image" this point it has none.

Stand up and speak out people! Let the elected officials know enough is enough!

God Bless America!

The Media...What is WAS and what it has BECOME... a Commentary

Media...when a person hears the word we envision reporters with cameras and recorders. Photographers chasing the "news" as it happens. We hear the phrase "breaking news" and expect to be kept up-to-date on current activities.

That was then and this is now. Today the media seems to have become a tool that is used by the politicians to bewilder and confuse (LIE) to the American people. We have been told about the "Trayvon Martin racist shooting"....only to find the "Media" produced an "EDITED" 9-11 tape to "support" their claim of racism!

After the verdict of "NOT GUILTY" was turned in on the Trayvon Martin shooting the "media" was frustrated. So much so that the "media" who had produced this "edited" tape needed to "redeem" themselves.

In Ferguson Missouri a shooting occurred. A Black teenager was shot by a white Police Officer. Presto! It HAD to be "racial"....the Media said so! Rather than wait for the Grand Jury to reach a verdict of weather or not the shooting was justified, the Media did the job FOR the Grand Jury!! The Media decided to "cover" the story and in doing so fanned the flames of "racism". This is also known as 'Race-Baiting'.

Rev Jesse Jackson was there....Rev Al Sharpton was there. In fact 3 MONTHS later they were there! The 'Hactivist Group' called "Anonymous" has become involved. Justice?? Grand Jury?? It seems that the decision is being made FOR the Grand Jury by the "Media", the "New Black Panthers", and Rev Jackson and Sharpton and "Anonymous" have played an active role in that decision.

At what point is "Justice" acceptable to all of these "outside parties"?? This is what the Media has become it seems. The Media has taken it upon themselves to convey the "Sentiments" of the people rather than report the FACTS. The MEDIA is NOT Judge Jury and Executioner!! It is their duty to REPORT the news NOT CREATE the news!!

Indeed a shooting did occur. What the decision of the Grand Jury is remains to be seen. Will that decision be respected? Who knows. It is a FACT that too many outside parties are involved. The Media is far too BIASED to be objective. It appears that a "Riot" is inevitable. Outside parties want to see it or they would not be race-baiting as they are.

Cops are not Saints. I will be the first one to say that. That is why we have a system in place. The system should be respected in my opinion. The "Media" has FAILED miserably at saying this.

I hope the people can contain the final outcome. A nationwide "riot" would truly damage race-relations. Jobs would indeed be lost. Trust would be destroyed.

I encourage people to be prepared and if the worst happens to leave the premises. Remember...."Stuff" can be and your family cannot.

Be careful people.

God Bless America!

A Commentary...The Election that Shocked the World!

The other day I went to the polls and like a good citizen cast my ballot and voted. Later on that evening I logged onto the internet and much to my surprise the results were amazing!

I saw that the Senate which had been run by Deomcratic Party was NO LONGER under Democratic Party control! Senate now belonged to the Republicans and and Congress had gained several seats as well!

Now I ask myself. What will these results mean to Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton? At the very least she will have to cope with the Republican Party en mass. In other words the turf ain't so cool no more. Republican majority makes things much more "hostile".

What will this "Change of the guard" cause in our view of Islamic relations? What about ISIL (or ISIS as it is also known)? Will our outlook upon them change?

I personally am hopeful that the economic outlook will improve. As I type this article the Dow Jones Industrial Average is now reaching into record territory. That in itself is a positive economic indicator.

While change can be a wonderful thing often there is a reason for that change. This particular change was promoted by the radical conduct (or lack thereof) from President Obama. If one looks at where the votes came from which caused the change it all falls in place.

The voters who went for change primarily were located in the Mid-West and Appalachian Region. Translation: The Coal-Miners, Ranchers, and Farmers are pissed! President Obama put the screws down on COAL. As a result MANY people and families suffered. Small ranchers and farmers are quite upset over the "Estate Tax" or "Death Tax" as it is known. The impact has been quite severe and the families have made their feelings known.

In America the election is where people make their voices known. Let's simply hope that these newly elected officials do their jobs and make American people proud. That really is all we ask. No more more false hopes. We are the people THEY represent!

Congratulations to all the voters! You have made your voices heard!

God Bless America!
