The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
And this is LOVE: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in LOVE. 2 John 1:6
President Noilbama gave a passionate speech on the need to stop those evil oil speculators who have been driving the price of gas up. If he was serious about it he would pass an executive order making the Democrat Party illegal since they have been speculating the oil prices up for four decades. Everything you eat, drink or live in is completely founded on the price of energy. When you break down the building blocks of every item that is consumed you will find energy is what made or harvested it and that energy was the primary cost to make it. If you want to control or perhaps destroy a country you would simply artificially inflate the price of energy and you have those people at your control.
Like my daddy always said, You can lead a liberal to water but you cant drown him. The Democrats and their militant friends in the EPA, Sierra Club and enviro-worshipers have been at war with oil and coal for decades. They understand if you want to destroy America you go after the soft underbelly of energy so they have been using every excuse and legal hurdle to make cheap energy impossible. These are the true commie believers who think they can run a more fair and just society than capitalism so they are going about killing their enemy by starvation. This is why we have not had a serious energy policy in over thirty years because 5% of the population controls that energy and wants to stop its production to kill America.
These are the hardcore communists who fell in love with Castro and Khrushchev in the 60s and now all of us are paying for their ascension to power. Their goal from the time he banged his shoe on the podium was to turn our capitalist system with all of the evil Bourgeois into a more fair and equal by their standards, country who would not bow to the powerful and evil rich. They then teamed with the environmental movement with the help of the DNC and media, began a campaign against oil and coal that it was too polluting. This took various scare campaigns like lead in gas causing brain damage, acid rain and now global warming. None of these could ever be verified but when you have the media powers like ABDNC and Hollywood vilifying and amplifying these myths became reality to destroy our energy industry.
Their latest booger man of course is the mysterious speculator. He will be vilified and brought up into the District of Corruption to be pilloried by a bunch of sanctimonious crooks who have been speculating the price of oil up their entire lives, for the greater good. Now we have a President who is trying to drive the final stake into the engine of capitalism by closing down both coal and oil which are the cheapest form of energy ever developed which will starve more people and cause more pain but in his eyes is justified by bringing a Cuban style gummit to America, making us pay for what we have done around the world.
The part these commie libs dont understand is the amount of pain and suffering these high priced goods and services cost due to the added costs. The ones who pay the most are the poor and elderly since the higher prices stretch budgets beyond the breaking point and they begin choosing between fuel and food. Since everything is based on the price of oil and coal when you double those prices you eventually double the price of everything else driving up the cost of living. He will justify it that there is some gummit program to sustain them and he can go on his merry way of killing this country, but do these people really want to live a sustenance lifestyle or would they rather be working and moving forward?
He could lower the level of poverty in less than three years by simply taking off the war on oil and coal. By doing that he would lower the prices of energy by over 50% and the costs of living would drop dramatically. There would be disposable income for people to spread money around and create jobs and opportunities for poor and rich alike. This would allow for further development of more and lower cost energy reigniting an economy that has forgot what a low cost sustainable energy source actually was. We have more oil and coal than any country in the world and there is only 5% of the population that is keeping the 95% from enjoying the benefits of those sources.
It is time to send the 5% to their Caribbean paradise and leave the rest of us alone. If they want a communist utopia there is one 90 miles off the coast that would welcome them with open work camps. This brings us to the absolute hypocrisy of those who want to starve you of energy but never require that of themselves. These people are in the inner circle so they use energy like no tomorrow as they fly from one posh destination after another speaking to the choirs in places like Cancun, NY, Miami, and Europe and everywhere they can get donations to promote their anti-oil agenda. They make millions off the destruction of America and live the life of the rich and famous while those that pay the price of their lavish lifestyle decide between beans and a quarter tank of gas. Those poor suckers at the gas pump have to understand the caviar justifies the means streak. These are the most selfish people on the planet and the true speculators. They speculate in misery.
So when Ohbummer claims we need to put an end to speculators, we have to agree. Lets start with him and the enviro-worship lobby that is driving those oil prices up. We should end the speculation that is being done by the DNC standing in the way of a common sense and sustainable energy plan that encompasses everything especially oil and coal. Lets penalize speculators in the Stone Age Press and SoddomWood to force them to tell the absolute truth about cars being the most efficient form of transportation ever invented. Lets stop their speculation through vilifying the car and how it is not destroying the world when in reality they are the ones destroying it. Have them point out their own hypocrisy as these overpriced marvels of the knife need to understand not everyone can afford to fly to Monaco whenever they want to have a night out and how their movies are absolutely destroying peoples lives. Yes Mr President, lets put an end to oil speculation; lets start with you.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Thanks for thread AB. ‘Bama seated 8 in NFL draft; 4 in Round 1. Congratulations.
Who’d want to play for ‘Bama ?.....Everybody !
Bray-—A brilliant commentary on a complex issue with a simple solution..you covered it from EVERY angle and tied it all up with a neat bow!
Singing at 10 am mass this morn.
Behave until I return and by all means keep me apprised of what’s going on with the talk shows.
How about that bureaucrat says he crucifies the first five men upon entering new territory?
It’s every American’s fear of bureaucracies, for sure we get it.
Remember when you deal with the local motor gubmint unit, with the IRS, with the nothing burger guy who must approve your house inspection....bureaucrats think like that guy. Do all the harm your agency can do and the rest of us boobs will stand quietly in line and in awe of the bureaucrats who have power over us.
All that guy did was let the truth slip out.
Talk at y’all later.
I was watching FOX News - and there sits Juliet in the middle in her little pink dress as the other 2 morons smile — discussing the Jimmy Kimmel Roast with Commissar Obama. I guess Hollywood and Wash DC are so far remove - that such an event to dress up - spend more money on stupid parties like this one is a good idea...
As laughed - the rest of us are worrying about the near term future of employment - what are kids will be doing in the next 10 yrs or so - what the educational system will be like and the job market - but no - Fox News prompted this event like it was a good thing - having Juliet explain tot he audience what a roast is was priceless...who does she think she’s talking to? Wasn’t FOX NEWS touted as the conservative voice a few years back...where the educated come to get there info??? I guess it’s no better than CNN...
This event is like so many other false and made up BS that spews from the mouths of politicians....people like Kimmel, John Stewart, and the rest of this elitist make me sick...
HAs anyone seen this report: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKdScVerrBU
This is kinda funny to watch seeing how everyone makes up crisis for their political re-election - but are quick to turn face when it’s worst during their reign in power...
Looks like Meet the Press has the most interesting lineup.
Don’t want to watch a whole Fox News Sunday show with one Obama apologist.
Already heard Chris Wallace thrilled to his bones about partying last night with George Clooney, et al.
That whole affair makes me sick to think about.
Where is everybody?
Yeah, that was pretty sickening.
But I have to defend Fox & Friends. I have my DVR set to tape them and I really like the show. the regular hosts are likeable and conservative.
I could criticize the way Gretchen dresses but I won’t because I like her too much.
Thank God I don’t have to watch that silly love fest between Obama and the Hollywood nitwits.
Morning AB thanks for the thread as usual.Even with all the strife going on here and elsewhere its refreshing to know that we are still do our thing here. Unimpeded,so far,just telling it like it is.
“FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): John Brennan, President Obamas top counterterrorism adviser”
I thought the war on terror was over?
Still on the two-day long thread maybe?
I understand that the New Yorker has listed awesome as one of the worst overused words.
Who cares? They’re just a snob, overrated magazine.
And your column was AWESOME !!
No thanks. Every time I see that guy on TV or hear him on the radio, my IQ drops ten points.
Thanks altura, but the first line was what was awesome.
Pray for America
I had to wade thru three pages of BS links before i could find the real story.
The real story in a summary is that zero had known where obl was for months and had avoided making a decision. Actually, he didn't have to.Valerie Jarrett made them all and probably still does.She is the President of the US,its just that few know it.
Bottom line Leon Panetta devised a scenario where zero would have looked weak,politically, if he didn't at least stand aside. Not even make a decision on whether to kill obl or not, just stand aside,while the real men did the real work.
That's what happened.Jarrreett was furious when she found out Panetta and Hillary went around her wishes and zero had the usual plausible denyablity if anything went wrong. Seal team 6 did the job,zero took the credit and idiot Gibbs is on MTP right now singing the praises of Gen. Obama.
You gotta wonder sometimes. http://patdollard.com/2011/05/obama-hesitated-%E2%80%93-panetta-issued-order-to-kill-osama-bin-laden/
Brennan: Admin is committed to dismantling al Qaeda, even though ‘the WoT’ is basically over.
Crowley: Should the killing of bin Laden be commercialized in political ads [as the Dems/Prez are currently doing?]
Brennan: I am not political. I have nothing to say about the ad. [Reminds me of Sir Thomas More’s ‘silence gives consent’ retort.]
Bonner: Absolutely not! It is evil to commercialize that.
I forget which show it was,probably Rush,that pointed out that we have a 60 years supply of natural gas,which just reached a new low in price and at least 200 year supply of oil. We have more oil than the Saudis yet all we hear from the regime is that we have 2% of the reserves and use 25% of the oil. Its another of huge cons the left has been allowed to get away with and unless our side represents the truth we are doomed to keep countering the lies of the left which is what their entire reelection/vote buying campaign is all about.
See last week’s thread. Driven out by the Hate-Romney-He’s-Worse-Than-Obama, the anti-mormons, the “If you say you’d vote for whoever the Republican nominee is” then you = Romneybot, and of course, the “I’m tellin’ JimRob!” crowd.
Even so, wait to you see the repsonse to this very post.
Hmmm... is that the famous Carly that destroyed Lucent and Hewlett Packard? That Carley?
HP should thank their lucky stars she is the former CEO.
You left out that she ran against Barbara Boxer in 2010, and lost.
Even so, she’d have been a much better senator then Babs.
Whomever our guy is opposing madcow and the other dyke he just scored a home run.”This is nothing but pitting men against women, rich against poor,creating issues that don’t exist,he exposed the regime for what they are doing.He got in their face and they went nuts.
It was a moment I hope we recreate during the week.
Agreed. This thread has been up for a little more than an hour and a half and there are less than 30 posts? Unheard of!
Maybe everybody's on vaca.
A Republican playing offense, what a novel concept!
I guess that means the real estate deal can't happen until Tony Rzesko gets out of the slammer and can cook up another deal for Barry and Wookie.
No word on how the local animal shelters are doing with the increased number of dogs dropped off at the shelters in the last 3 years since Kenya Fried Cockapoo had its local franchisee move to DC.
And Barry's snide joke about Pit Bulls and Hockey Moms had a distinctly smarmy junior high sexual innuendo slant to it. Good thing the Pres is the coolest kid in junior high, so he can get away with stuff like that.
Good one today, bray. Right on point at a time we need it exposed.
There are hints that Obama intends to play up his single-handed capture of Osama in the campaign.
If he is dumb enough to do this, I hope the truth comes out and makes him look like the fool he is.
Yeah, those two are such mental giants. So willing to explain Conservative thought.
Maybe that’s why Hillary said ‘don’t call at 3am’, she kept getting Valerie Jarrett on the line. Thanks for the link, I think you may find some info here on Free Republic, because I’m thinking that’s where I got it being the state run media isn’t going to print that.
I love this thread and I hope Alas Babylon continues to put it up even though the crowd has seriously thinned out.
People are discouraged from posting what they think and if you can’t post what you think, why post.
I’m still posting what I think and altho I was accused of being pro abortion because I said I would vote for Romney, so far I’m still here.
Being pro-life and passionately pro-life is one of the reasons we have to get Obama out. Someone posted the ages of the 4 oldest Supremes. We cannot let Obama select even one SC judge or we’ll never get rid of Roe v Wade.
Now, I’m crying. The president has a sad look on his face. I can’t take it.
By the way, his hair is totally gray (or it was on that stupid awards show) I guess it turned gray from missing Chicago.
Guess who Romney named as his advisor for legal issues?
Judge Robert Bork.
Just another example of how he is a RINO squish.
Stopping by to report that. Now I need to get ready for church.
Oh boy! Hillary Rosen...again! I’ll pass...
Even our kids won't be able to pay off all the vote buying dollars spent under general Obama.
What zero really misses is all those limo rides with Larry Sinclair and back rubs with Rhambo in the local bath houses....
It is hard for us Conservatives to once again have to vote for McCain light. He had the money and we split our vote between more than one person.
If you think the Romney fights were vicious, you must have missed the Santorum/Newt arguments. If you were for one or the other, you weren’t a true Conservative. We blew our chance.
omigosh, that is great.
Romney beat Obama who also wanted Judge Bork as legal advisor or so I understand.
I guess this choice makes Romney even more ‘e’.
Still don’t know what e means.
Who wants to hear anti-republican stuff? Obama is telling jokes with his Democratic press when we’re 15 or 16 trillion in debt? Obama should be voted out. Every candidate has flaws. This guy is bankrupting the country.
Yeah, Rosen has been getting coaching lessons from Anita Dunn on not saying moms are lazy for the last 3 weeks.
We really never had a chance. Our slate was pathetic and people here were clueless, flitting from one favorite to the next and trashing everyone else.
It’s not hard for me to vote for Romney. Not my choice but not hard at all when I consider the alternative.
This Brennan talks like he is on medication. He sounds too rehearsed and very out there!
Oh by the way. Many video links and other site info was not available on this topic as well,how strange?
He did look a little stoned, didn’t he?
