Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 20th, 2014

Talon’s point today is based on a series of related tweets from earlier today as follows:

” I’ve said it before and will again. Obama is NOT the problem…he’s the symptom.”

“The ignorance of soft tyranny has lead to the awareness of hard tyranny.  The GOP has helped make this happen.”

…. and to someone who thinks the solution is to simply vote GOP as if GOP wins have advanced liberty rather than the reality it has also attacked it….

“Sometimes you are better off with the tyrant you recognize rather than the one you don’t recognize.”

For several years now I’ve said that Obama may turn out to be the best thing that has happened to America both spiritually and politically in several generations. How can I such an astounding thing? Because before Obama, our once great nation was not only sliding into the spiritual and social abyss, we were doing so in our sleep. The rise of this developing tyrant has awakened the portion of America that is capable of consciousness. The other portion is of course suffering from a government sugar induced coma and won’t awake until they are dying from their coming real physical hunger.

Obama’s acts have driven the Godly, and many of the once Godly, to their Bibles and their knees. It has been the fulcrum that has wedged them out of their actual, and metaphorical, recliners and motivated them to reestablish or strengthen the faith they will need to stand through the coming storm. It has even awakened some who never gave God much thought but deep inside they knew spiritually there is no hope outside of the the Creator they previously disregarded. This storm will almost assuredly include open persecution of Christians, and to a lessor extent non conformist non-Christians who reject all intrusive government,  not just anecdotal cases of persecution but full scale legalized persecution both sanctioned by, and engaged in by all levels of government. I pray this is not true. But every sign tells me otherwise. Let me quickly say here that I am not opposed to government. Our founders were right that it is a necessary evil that is best limited but nevertheless needed. Yet it is most capable of acting honorably when it acts minimally.

Secondarily, as I have already eluded to, it has awakened non-Christians at a political level. People from all walks of life, even some “liberals” who now justifiably fear they will soon lose all remaining social liberties in exchange for a system that takes virtually all they have and returns to them over priced and poorly provided “services.” Services that do not compete with what the free market is capable of. They recall images of empty Soviet market shelves and instinctively know we are walking the same path that led to mass economic deprivation.

Neither of these two awakenings, in my opinion, would have occurred under under John McCain because it was not occurring under George W. Bush. I’m not attacking these men. I am however confidently contending that their big government views intentionally, or unintentionally, have, or would have in the case of McCain, allowed the exponential growth of a government that displaces God with itself. I further contend that had Romney been elected, we likely as a people would have returned to believing this threat was generally over. As such we would have gone back to sleep as the assault on our spiritual heritage and personal liberty would continue unabated, just slower. Not because of Romney per se, but because the structure that allows the assault would only have been tweaked, rather than reformed.

Quote of the Day, Week, Year, Decade

“This is a disastrous monetary policy; it’s kamikaze monetary policy” – Peter Schiff, CEO Of Euro Pacific Capital

Was I referring to Mr. Schiff with my headline? No. Peter Schiff put it much more succinct  which is always useful in this age of attention deficits. Actually my headline was referring to the following quote from credit rating agency Egan-Jones.

“[T]he FED’s QE3 will stoke the stock market and commodity prices, but in our opinion will hurt the US economy and, by extension, credit quality. Issuing additional currency and depressing interest rates via the purchasing of MBS does little to raise the real GDP of the US, but does (will*) reduce the value of the dollar (because of the increase in money supply), and in turn increase the cost of commodities (see the recent rise in the prices of energy, gold, and other commodities). The increased cost of commodities will pressure profitability of businesses, and increase the costs of consumers thereby reducing consumer purchasing power. Hence, in our opinion QE3 will be detrimental to credit quality for the US….” –Credit Rating Agency Egan-Jones

If this didn’t quite sink in just read the word in bold and you will see why I began this post with a quote from Peter Schiff

Very Funny – The Wrong Diner

There are two pillars of our liberties the powers that be hope we will relinquish as noted by then candidate Barrack Hussein Obama made famous when he said “They cling to their guns and religion”

Our wise founders left us many quotes making it clear that we better not forget why the right to keep and bear arms was not just a right but a strong recommendation. In honor of this wisdom I give you two following quotes and a great humorous video.

“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson

Obama vs. Obama: Obamacare

Mike Cornelison June 27, 2012

Obama vs. Obama: Obamacare

Today, the Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling on the constituionality of Obamacare, so in my second post in the Obama vs. Obama series, I will compare and contrast Obama the exaulted teleprompter reader with Obama the sociopathic sellout and demonstrate how the president’s split personalities have manifested themselves in his “signature achievement.”

From the moment Obama took office, while the economy grew worse and worse and the job picture for Americans bleaker by the day, instead of addressing the economy, his Democrat-controlled Congress was completely consumed with trying to invent Obamacare and then pass it. While Congress was stuck in the mire of the health care swamp, most Americans were angry, saying, “Forget all that and get this economy turned around!”

By the time the fourteen-month ordeal was finally over, any hopes supporters may have had for a national celebration over Obamacare’s passage were dashed. The widespread unpopularity of the bill was undeniable, as shown in this list of all the major polls from March 2010:

And over two years later, Obamacare is still unpopular by a wide margin to this very day: Read rest of article here
