A great day for America, and more days like this need to come

Today was a great day for the great United States of America, we finally got the man who is responsible for the 9/11 attacks as well as many attacks on American soldiers and civilians. Osama Bin Laden is no more. For too long he was hiding from the United States. For too long, he sent out threatening messages to United States and it’s Allies. And for too long he and his organization Al-Qaida launched attacked on America and it’s Allies.

But thanks to our Navy SEALs and CIA, Osama got destroyed and Americans should be happy, enjoy this great day that we all are celebrating.

What we really all need to realize is that despite the fact that Osama Bin Laden is no more, the Taliban, Al-Qaida, and other terrorists throughout the globe still operate in plans to destroy The U.S., it’s allies, and others that stand in its way. The Taliban are still around, trying to regain all of Afghanistan, Al-Qaida while weakened over the last few years is not out for the count and are trying everything they can to start more attacks again, and there are many homegrown terrorists in the U.S. and other western countries ready to launch terrorist acts against civilians and military targets.

Osama Bin Laden is no central head where taking him out takes out Al-Qaida and all other terror cells. When you have cells that act like splinters, taking out the leader at best takes out or damages the splinter cell. Obama was just another splinter, and Al-Qaida has been more of a bunch of splinter groups for the last several years since Osama was in hiding.

For America, the West, and anyone else who wants to take out Al-Qaida, the Taliban, and other terrorists groups, the most important thing now is to keep going and going. No, point of stopping now, it’s time to continue taking out the enemies of the America and the West. They won’t stop, they won’t play nice, why should we?

Paul Ryan’s got the idea, but we can do even more

Today, Paul Ryan revealed his long-term budget plan that would start in 2012. It does dig deep into solving some of or financial problems we are facing as a nation. In a blog written by Philip Klein from the Washington Examiner, Klein mentions how Ryan would reduce spending:

So how does Ryan achieve these numbers? To start with, it isn’t with
tax hikes. In fact, revenues would actually decline significantly under his plan, something that we’ll no doubt be hearing more of among liberal critics.

Instead, Ryan focuses primarily on the spending side of the ledger.

Specifically, Ryan’s proposal would:

— Repeal the national health care law in its entirety.

— Change Medicare for those 55 and younger to give them the ability to choose among different types of health care plans that would be subsidized by the government. The value of the subsidies would vary so that poorer and sicker beneficiaries would receive more than richer and wealthier ones.

— Reform Medicaid so that it is block-granted to the states, putting it on a predictable fiscal course and giving governors’ more flexibility.

–Take Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ suggestions of $178 billion in cuts to the Pentagon budget, but use $100 billion of that to reinvest in other, higher priority, defense programs.

–Reduce domestic (non-entitlement spending) back to below 2008 levels, and then freeze that for five years, and cap the overall budget at a level below 20 percent of the economy, its historic average.

–Simplify the corporate and individual tax code, ending deductions and loopholes while lowering the corporate tax and the top individual tax bracket to 25 percent.

This is good. However, more important items are missing in order to ensure spending levels are down.

1) Red tape and regulations

The one thing that can hurt a business just as bad as high taxes is red tape and regulation. The less red tape and regulation there is in all levels of government, the better the chances of higher revenue, expansion, and success a business will have. Getting rid of Obamacare is just one big red tape, but there are others out there that need to be reduce or eliminated all together.

2) Sell Government property

Jeffrey Zients posted on the White House Blog about a month ago saying that the Federal government owns 1.2 million properties across the country and 14,000 buildings and structures are currently designated as excess or under-utilized.

Selling those 14,000 buildings is a start. That could bring some needed revenue to the government to pay off the high external debt we have. Why sell 14,000 when you can sell even more? There definitely has to be more than 14,000 buildings that have no purpose what so ever in government.

There is no guarantee Ryan’s budget will pass because of the veto pen and the U.S. Senate. However, promoting this budget helps get the news out that there are some people who actually want to do real work and real solving in Washington. It’s important we make this push for this important budget reduction. However, Ryan and those who support a better fiscal and economic future must fight very hard, very determined and very ruthless because the other side knows how to stop good things from happening in Washington and the time is now to give one hell of a fight.

If we are going to defund NPR, why stop there.

So why are we still funding NPR, a public station that should have died with the rise of the internet, a station that rushed fast to fire Juan Williams about being nervous on an airplane with Muslims and were angry he was a Fox News Contributor, a station that is anti-Semetic, makes tea party bashing remarks, had an Executive Director and Chief Fundraiser believed they were meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood, and has only has bad remarks regarding traditional American principals? Well to the Democrats and the left, it is because it’s a far left wing tool for them to spread there propaganda and boost support. Even though the House of Representatives voted to defund NPR it will be a tough fight in the Senate to get it passed.

However why should we just stop any more defunding and call it a day. Why not start defunding other groups?

There is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, better know as the ATF. It really needs to be a convenience store, not a Federal Bureau. The ATF is willing to find any excuse to revoke gun licenses no matter how small, medium, big, or not all. And if your a staunch believer in gun-rights, and you make it know, and own a gun company watch out because the ATF will be coming for you. Let’s not also forget that the ATF is willing to commit perjury and disregard the rules of engagement when it comes to what they believe is suspicious groups. To top that all off, how is it that the ATF loves to go after law-abiding citizens, but has no problem ignoring Mexican Drug dealers buying thousands of Assault weapons in the United States, using them against our border patrol agents, and moving across the border to drug cartels. This is an agency so dysfunctional that why wasn’t it shut down and defunding a long time ago.

Then comes Planned Parenthood, a group that has no trouble lying to the public and taxpayers. Planned Parenthood claims that it does not use taxpayer funds for abortions. But if you look at it’s 2008-2009 Annual report on Combined statement of revenue 33% of it’s funding is Government Grants and Contracts. Let’s not forget that an office manager at a Central New Jersey gave advice to sex traffickers on how and where to get abortions for underage girls.

Planned Parenthood Annual Report 08-09 – “http://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/PPFA/PP_AR_011011_vF.pdf”

There are many other bureau’s, groups, and projects that need to be defunded of money on all levels of government. However it will be a very tough fight to do this, especially with a far left groups, politicians, and the drive-by media going all out and supporting the worst types spending possible.

Where in the world is President Barack Obama?

Libya rebels are at war with Gaddafi, the Middle East is going through major changes, Japan has had a disaster that doesn’t seem to end, and President Barack Obama can make an easy decision about making his NCAA picks and going on vacation. For Obama sports and luxury are easy, but a major problem in the US or the world, it is wait and see and then maybe make a decision later.

What President Obama does not understand is the Presidency is not some form of fun and celebrity, it’s being a leader of the free world, it’s being able to handle the pressure, it’s being able to make decisions in a short amount of time when problems need to be solved as soon as possible.

Or maybe as Rush Limbaugh said it best on his March 17th show – “He doesn’t look at America as the solution. We’re the problem. He doesn’t think the United States has any moral authority in places like Libya. In fact, I would venture to say that if you get Obama to be honest, he’d tell you that there have been times in our history when we have been Libya. We’re no different. He probably thinks, who are we telling Khadafy what to do? Who are we to stand up for people around the world who want freedom?”. Maybe President Obama does believe were all the same, and we should not care about what happens in the world regardless of the consequences.

When the United Nations, Britain, France, and Arab countries take action and make decisions faster on Libya, people wonder how much the United States is declining as a world power? And will President Obama actually realize that sooner or later that there is responsibility for not making actions?
