Glass-Steagall and Why Obama wants it Forgotten

May 17, 2010 — Bob Beers

Most people are unaware that a little-remembered bit of legislation known as the Banking Act of 1933 was a law that established the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in the United States and introduced banking reforms, some of which were designed to control speculation. It is most commonly known as the Glass–Steagall Act, after its legislative sponsors, Carter Glass and Henry B. Steagall.

I received an email from C. Miller yesterday. It contained a list of figures that anyone who isn’t socialist-minded would find disturbing. The following facts illustrate in an extremely graphic way just how expensive it has been to leave our borders unsecured.

The Enemy of my Enemy

A good portion of this column is a repeat, but because of the importance in removing Harry Reid from power, it needs to be said again.

The Violent Democrat

May 1st, otherwise known as May Day is celebrated as a secular holiday in a variety of cultures across the globe. The most notorious, for those who love real freedom, is the celebration of May Day as a “workers holiday”.

Let me begin this collection of odd thoughts with this statement: from my own considerably old-style point of view, the animated cartoon show South Park contains nothing that could be remotely considered of redeeming value.

What Part of Illegal Don’t You Understand?

This line from the first page of the Arizona Immigration Reform Bill, Senate Bill 1070, is what upsets most liberals:

Bertha Lewis’ Lunacy

Apr 26, 2010 — Bob Beers

Performing in its usual anti-American fashion the mainstream media is refusing to report on what is perhaps the most telling revelation by an Obama cohort yet. Bertha Lewis, the current head of ACORN, Obama’s initial path to power and the tool he used to destroy the US economy, gave a speech to the Young Democratic Socialists, an arm of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Obama petrified of proof

Apr 20, 2010 — Bob Beers

It doesn’t take the Obama administration long to pull a cover up. Just a few days after my column asking whether or not Should Obama Step Down, the transcript of the Kenyan Parliament for March 25th, 2010 was scrubbed from the Kenyan Parliament site. Was there collusion between Washington and Kenya?  If you think anyone is going to truthfully answer that question you are dumber than the liberals think you are.

Deconstructing Harry Reid

Apr 19, 2010 — Bob Beers

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the first alleged-American President Barack Obama have had a busy year. Together they have set a number of records:

Glen Beck had an extremely important point to make this morning. The point was the difference between being a liar and being wrong. Anyone who has never been wrong, step up so I can check your halo, because only one individual dressed in epidermis can make that claim, and what did we do to him? I was partially wrong in not triple checking my information from Free Republic in the Allee Bautsch and Joe Brown story, but I was not wrong in reporting their beating nor was I wrong in pointing out that the press has intentionally ignored the story.

The 28th Amendment

C. Miller, a fellow conservative who corresponds with me on a fairly regular basis, sent out an email that is probably the most profound suggestion I have ever read since the day I perused the Jefferson and Adams letters.

Beaten for Wearing a Palin Button (Update)

A cautionary note about the beating in New Orleans; Update: No Palin pins involved

I’m getting bombarded with angry e-mails about the terrible assault on Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal’s campaign fundraising chief, Allee Bautsch, and her boyfriend in the French Quarter of New Orleans over the weekend.


This story appeared recently in The Free Republic

“Allee Bautsch, chief campaign fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend Joe Brown, were savagely beaten Friday night in New Orleans after leaving a Republican Party fundraising dinner by a group of thugs who reportedly targeted the couple because they were wearing Sarah Palin pins.

Should Obama Step Down? Hell, Yes!

On page 31 in the transcribed text of the March 25, 2010 session of the Kenyan Parliament, there is a brief statement by the Kenyan Minister for Lands (Mr. Orengo). What Mr. Orengo says is nothing short of a bombshell, and yet not a mention has been made anywhere in the mainstream media. I think, for obvious reasons.

The Liberal Death Wish

The quote below comes from a paper published through the University of Arizona. The article is a tutorial on the greenhouse effect and it is written in language simple enough for even a liberal to understand…unless that liberal happens to be a Hollywood celebrity or Al Gore.

Liberal Nazis

Apr 9, 2010 — Bob Beers

In his March 27, 2010 column,  New York Times columnist Frank Rich compared the alleged tea-party treatment of marching Democrats to the Nazi treatment of the Jews during Germany’s Kristallnacht. Here is the line from Rich’s garbled prose:

Michael Savage is Right

Mallard Filmore had a great one liner today, “Remember, judging an entire group by the bad behavior of a few members is called Stereotyping…except when we do it to Teapartiers, then it’s called Reporting.”

Pardon Me for Living

Mar 29, 2010 — Bob Beers

This past Saturday, March 27, 2010,somewhere between 10,000 to 20,000 Tea Party conservatives descended upon Harry Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, Nevada. Depending upon what side of the political spectrum you read the event was either a gathering of gap-toothed, pistol-packing Neanderthals or fervent patriots waiting for the chance to serve their country to the bitter end. The reality is somewhere else entirely.

Heil Obama

Mar 23, 2010 — Bob Beers

The knock came on the door long after we’d put the children to bed. I’d been expecting it. To me, caring for my family was far more important than obeying arbitrary purchasing laws. Nodding to my wife in a prearranged signal, I walked over to the door as she hurried to the back of the house. The bags had been packed since that terrible vote by Congress last year. I hadn’t expected it to be the last thing Congress would ever do, but there you go. Some had said that a dictatorship would be more efficient. If waiting in line for half a day to buy government packaged cheese is efficiency, you can have it.

“Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your often infirmities.” 1 Timothy 5:3

Believe it or not, the Bible is especially relevant where Washington politics is concerned. In this case Paul’s suggestion to Timothy is not to become a drunkard, but to add a small amount of the antioxidants found in red wine to his diet. In the same case, a bit of moderation would immensely useful in DC.

Taxation without Representation

Article 1 of the US Constitution, first half of the third paragraph of section 2:
