Excellent analogy:

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result … all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment… with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why? Because in their minds… that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Congress OPERATES…… and this is why, from time to time, all of monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME

Bud The Cowboy

Bud The Cowboy

A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, “If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?”

Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, “Sure, Why not?”

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility inHamburg, Germany .

Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer, turns to the cowboy and says, “You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.”

“That’s right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,” says Bud.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

Then Bud says to the young man, “Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?”

The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, “Okay, why not?”

“You’re a Congressman for the U.S. Government”, says Bud.

“Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie, “but how did you guess that?”

“No guessing required.” answered the cowboy. “You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don’t know a thing about how working people make a living – or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep. ….

Now give me back my dog.

Secede Texas

Are you a Texan who feels like America has left us behind and is forcing a culture on us that we don’t want? Do you feel like we’re past the point of no return?

If you answered no to both questions — then consider on of the 168 “Secede Texas” items in the Chairman Obama Gift Shop to start the conversations.

From bumper stickers and coffee mugs, shirts and sweat shirts, yard signs and banners, and many little stocking stuffing trinkets like drink coasters and fridge magnets.

Do You Know This Person and This Country?

My favorite politically orientated movie, of how a disturbed man with a questionable upbringing becomes a megalomaniac who is elected to run a country looking for hope and change. While he doesn’t require teleprompters in his speeches, and the groups he goes after are different — he sure reminds me of someone.

Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” is a great movie that combines some aspects of  Fascist/Communist politics with the history of the original front man for Pink Floyd (Syd Barrett) taking a trip that he never returned from. Check his history after watching the video.

The below is a full-length movie — so wait until you have the time to see it in its entirety. It is a great movie on so many different levels.

Makers, Takers, Givers, and Brokers

Makers, Takers, Givers, and Brokers

Dave Schultz – November 4, 2010

It doesn’t matter who you are — there are Makers and there are Takers of every race.

Sadly the “Great Society” politicians (Givers) and the money/power hungry Black Activists (Brokers of the Givers) created a Society of Takers with “Affirmative Action” and Public Assistance by playing these people for their personal benefit, and keeping them ignorant and hating. Screams of racism work great with stirring up the ignorant Takers. Like Heroin addicts, once a Taker — it is hard to break the cycle, and your children will most often also become Takers — as they never learned another way.

It is to the great advantage of racists like Je$$ee Jacka$$ and Rev. Soundbyte to keep their flock down through hated (as Unions do with business) — and it appears that most blacks (or Union members for that fact) don’t understand who’s foot is really on their neck. Takers are hooked on taking — and they vote exclusively for the Givers (giving priority to the Givers of their race, because it is really they who are the bigger racists) of the taxes on the Makers. They then mindlessly repeat the talking points given to them by the Givers and Community Organizers. These talking points are repeated over and over because Givers are generally too lazy to become educated and challenge what is said to them; and for the comfort of justifying to themselves and other with being the Takers. Without Takers — the Givers and “Community Organizers” (Unions, ACORN, etc…) would have to become Makers — and they ain’t going to let that golden goose slip away.

The communities where Takers gather (recently Houston and Dallas — previously Detroit, Cleveland, Gary, Oakland, Chicago, NYC, Newark, Buffalo, Philly, Atlanta, New Orleans,…) fail because the Makers blow town for places with a better Maker/Taker ratio (IE: Less Taxes) leaving it to mostly Takers to turn the community into a slum. Even the rich Givers move on to the greener pastures of more recently Takers territory (as they don’t like living in slums) and the bottom feeder Givers for the slums become people like Charlie Rangle, and Sheila Jackass Lee.

A Taker can be employed — they’re people who receive from a government more than they put in.

2010 Hope & 2012 Change

http://images5.cpcache.com/product/483884895v0_480x480_Front_Color-White.jpg

On November 2, 2010 America finally once again has Hope. However, we can not breathe easy until we effect change in 2012. We have to throw the Bums out of the Senate and White House — and those in the House that didn’t get the message.

There are a ton of items in the Chairman Obama gift shop to help get the message out. Apathy in 2006 and 2008 got America into deep trouble. Let’s not waste the message we gave yesterday with Apathy. A lot of damage was done — and a lot of work needs to be done. There are obviously idiot in New York, California, Delaware, Alaska, and Nevada who still don’t get it.

How To Get Your Ass Kicked By a Veteran

Rules for Kickin’ Ass

http://www.uwsp.edu/career/JobSearchInformation/JobSrchByFields/Badges%20of%20the%20five%20military%20brances.jpg

Dear Civilians, ‘We know that the current state of affairs in our great nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.

For those of you who can’t join, you can still lend a hand. Here area few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during the playing of the National Anthem – kick their ass.

2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in protest – kick their ass.

3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest amount of respect to all veterans. If you see anyone doing otherwise, quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the very freedom they bask in every second. Enlighten them on the many sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great. Then hold them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you were. Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling Others that you used to be ‘Special Forces’. Collecting GI Joe memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old, now, it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

5. Next time you come across an *Air Force* member, do not ask them, ‘Do you fly a jet?’ Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot. Such ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).

6. If you witness someone calling the Coast Guard ‘non-military’, inform them of their mistake – and kick their ass.

7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your heart. Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be carrying her – of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a severe ass-kicking.

9. ‘Your mama wears combat boots’ never made sense to me – stop saying it! If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore would kick your ass!

10. ‘Flyboy’ (*Air Force*), ‘Jarhead’ (*Marines*), ‘Grunt’ (*Army*), ‘Squid’ (*Navy*), ‘Puddle Jumpers’ (*Coast Guard*), etc., are terms of endearment we use describing each other. Unless you are a service member or vet, you have not earned the right to use them. Using them could get your ass kicked.

11. Whether or not you become a member of the military, support our troops and their families. Every Thanksgiving and religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their families. Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every day. Without them, our Country would get it’s ass kicked.

12. It’s the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It’s the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It’s the Veteran, not the community organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It’s the Military who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

13. If you ever see anyone singing the national anthem in Spanish – KICK THEIR ASS.

Will the US Go Bankrupt?

We’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg on the mortgage crisis.

I wrote back in 2004-2005 that all of this mortgage rewriting was a sham — and was going to come back to haunt the country. Everything happened just as I predicted publicly two years before it started.

I’ve made my career in Debt Recovery and Debt Resale — in addition to selling a popular computer system that did both. I was a highly sought after speaker on the topic in the 90s (before I’d retired). The bottom line is not only do I know the industry of Distressed Debt resale and debt recovery real well. After 40 years, I know 100s of people in the industry.

Fact is that the shit hasn’t really hit the fan yet! The banking system and any other investor/fund holding mortgage debt is about to really get hammered — and they know it. So far all of the money that Obama, Frank,and Dodd have thrown at the problem is chopped liver — which only hides the delay of the inevitable “Big Crash”. There are about to be a ton of put backs (buyers of bad debt making the sellers of bad debt contractually buy the debt back because it was fraudulently sold to them). I know the concept of put backs real well — and I know (and have seen) banks fraudulently selling debt up close and personal. They’re scumbags. Portfolio managers were paid the big commissions on these fraud packages — and are now long gone and virtually untouchable. They knew they’d never have to pay the price — and knowingly misrepresented the debt they sold for the higher commissions. That part of the industry is a snake pit.

Technically Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guaranteed the loans — but they only have as much money as Obama will give them. He’s got to have reached the limit of the taxpayer’s patience on Government Bailouts and redistribution of wealth to those who don’t make their home payments.

This put back is estimated at $130,000,000,000 — but those estimates are being made by firms with skin in the game — as they all own large share stakes in the Seller banks, which they need to quietly bail on before the shit hits the fan. I  assure you $130Billion is way low.

Add to that that banks will lose billions on the Robo-signing of foreclosures (a different issue) — and the Socialist Obama government will not allow foreclosures of any property that doesn’t have the documentation normally required. This debt has been packaged, traded, repackaged, and traded again so many times — very little of the legal documentation to transfer the property exists. Many of the people who didn’t pay for their homes will get to stay there indefinitely until the investors give up on the property when the property taxes aren’t paid — and the county/city governments foreclose. Quick-Claims (where the legitimate property owner give up their interest in the property and the property starts as a new entity) will be the only way this property will ever get transferred unless laws are changed. Liberals need these people for votes — and will allow them to get something for nothing.

However, that still isn’t the big problem.The big problem is that a very large percentage of the loans written in 2005-2007 were on Balloons. The Three-year balloons have already come due and are baked into the problem — but the most of those balloons were NOT 3-year balloons; they were 5-year and 7-year balloons that are coming due soon. No one will rewrite those loans because the property is now worth 60%-75% of the principle coming due — will become worth even less than that as more foreclosed property hits the market driving down property values, and the debtors aren’t worth spit because they won’t repay no matter how your rewrite the loan. No doubt the government will again spend trillions to make this right to their voters — and the US will go bankrupt.

Thank Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, William the Impeached, Franklin Raines, ACORN, and now Obama. US Currency won’t be worth spit! I really believe this is the near future.
