I Am Troubled

I am troubled as no government has ever willingly reduced its scope or power for any reason, least of all because the people want it or the nation needs it to survive. Reducing the power and scope of any government has always required a blood sacrifice.

Fifty Percent Unemployment?

Several economists are predicting 50% unemployment. We have had that for several years. Generally, it is called welfare. If 50% of those working now become unemployed, we will have 75% unemployment. Wherever will the Marxist Socialists get their money then?

Rosy Glow

Some people have their head so far up their butt that the only light they see is the rosy glow of the sun through their navel.

Impeachment Possibility?

Even with the exception of Reid and Pelosi and a few other diehard Marxists, I think an impeachment proceeding would find Obama guilty. The Democrats want to get out from under this guy and come out of it with some electable dignity. That is about all that is left to them. I think the pillars of the temple are cracking. The closer it gets to election day, the worse it will get. I suspect many are looking for ways to distance themselves from the political fallout that would cause and position themselves in a positive light. I see many voting with the Republicans and I know they hate that, but it is prudent if they want to survive. They will be a few at first, then many. They are self serving and selfish, but they are not stupid.

Dumb Progress Check

The dumbing down of America was an absolute necessity as many in Congress and Administration could not get reelected by an intelligent and informed electorate. The Muslim postage stamp is just a check on the current dumb level.

Time For A Change

The current administration has given us hope and change. Now, judging from its demonstrated lawlessness and contempt for the Constitution, it appears to be time to give the entire administration trial and incarceration.

Frogs In The Kettle

I think Democrats are too stupid to realize and/or too arrogant to admit they have been had. I would add embarrassed, but the Democrat party has lost the ability to be embarrassed by anything. They are frogs in the kettle as much or more so than the rest of the nation.

America's Third World

California is fast replacing Appalachia as America’s Third World...and it is self imposed!

We Screwed Us!

I think we screwed us. We didn’t hold our reps and senators feet to the fire to make the prez answer up about faked birth certificates, fraudulent use of social security numbers (he had many), going to war when he pleases as long as he pleases, back-dooring congress with the bureaucracy ruled by his Czars. They didn’t get enough mail, e-mail and phone calls threatening their featherbeds if they didn’t do something so they just tried to finesse us and it worked on far too many. The republic as we know it won’t stand much longer. I hope the new republic that rises from the ashes takes into account greed and avarice on levels our founders could never have conceived.

Eco-friendly? To what?

Protected golden eagles in CA dying after colliding with 'eco-friendly' wind turbines...
This has been going on for years!...and it is not just eagles. It is anything with feathers that flies. Birds, especially migratory birds, often use favorable air currents to travel long distances. Local birds often use favorable air currents to travel about in their areas. Wind turbines use favorable air currents to operate more efficiently and are placed where the air currents are favorable. Was there not one single eco-idiot capable of foreseeing this conflict? I mean it isn’t rocket science, just plain common sense. Another expensive, poorly thought out, feel good “green” idea that destroys what they claim to protect. I wonder if a condor hit messes up the turbine blades?

Politicians and Bureaucrats

Self serving politicians and improperly supervised bureaucrats have destroyed every society conceived by man to date. America will be no exception.

Osama Dead!!!...Dead???

Well, maybe not quite yet, but it is inevitable. No pictures so far that aren’t faked....hmmmmmmmm. Countless conflicting stories of how Osama was killed...hmmmmmmmmm. A 25 minute blackout of information during the raid (that room full of people were watching a blank screen and posing for a photo op)...hmmmmmmm. I am curious. SEALS don’t normally “execute” anyone. They do snatch and grab. Even the CIA doesn’t do assassinations anymore. Somehow, it doesn't seem logical that the single most important and complete source of information and intelligence about Al Qaeda would be summarily shot without interrogation? I think the SEALS got the right man and I think OBL will live until every single shred of information has been wrung from him. Then he will sleep with the fishes since he is already “dead” and can’t be logically “resurrected”. I think all we have seen is smoke and mirrors regarding his “death”. If the CIA is smart, that is all we have seen and will ever see.

Vocation or Dedication

When teaching America's youth becomes a vocation rather than a dedication the teacher needs to find another line of work. America cannot survive without dedicated teachers.

Politicians That Do Less

No-fly Problem?

The Arab League wants the UN to impose a no-fly zone over Libya...’scuse me...members of the Arab League have a significant inventory of F-16’s and Mirages as well as MiGs. They also have the fuel to fly them and no shortage of bullets and bombs. Sounds like an Arab problem to me. I don’t know of a Shari’ah Law or Fatwa against bombing or strafing other Islamics. They have done it in the past with no qualms. I think the Arabs ought to Muslim up and take care of their own problems. If not, I am sure the Persians would be only too glad to oblige. ---William Fortner 2011---

Plugging The Loopholes

A letter to my senators and Congressman. Maybe you might want to write yours as well.

March 10, 2011


Congress is getting ready to make the most egregious mistake ever by not closing the loopholes that permitted Barack Obama to become president under a cloud of suspicion. There should be no possible question as to the constitutional qualifications of a candidate for President of the United States.

Contrary to popular belief, a candidate for the highest position in this nation does not "run" for office, he or she is applying to the American people for a job. It is to those employers, and not any committee or any other entity, to which the candidate must prove conclusively that he or she meets the constitutional requirements to hold that office. The Constitution does not grant the DNC, the RNC or any federal government office the authority to approve or vouch for a candidate’s eligibility. Since it does not grant that authority, then that authority rests with the several states or the people, period.

To that end, I want you to propose legislation that requires candidates for President make readily available to the public on demand, an original long form birth certificate signed by a physician licensed to practice medicine in the state of birth and certified by the state registrar charged with maintaining that data, stating the date, place of birth and the parents names and nationality. A certified copy of the candidate’s parent’s birth certificates must also be provided. The candidate must also provide a list of places where he or she has resided with the inclusive dates as well as a listing of employment with inclusive dates and a listing of schools and colleges attended. Graduation certificates or diplomas must also be provided. This is the information I had to provide just to enlist in the US Navy!

In addition, a candidate must successfully pass the complete screening for a Top Secret Clearance before being placed on the ballot. The document providing that confirmation must also be made public. The reason for this is obvious.

It is ludicrous and dangerous not to require a candidate meet these requirements and that these documents and information be made public prior to any election for President of the United States so the people, via their state governors, can decide if the candidate meets the qualifications for President and if he or she is suitable to hold the office and be placed on the state ballot.

This must be done before the next presidential election.

Be Gentle With Women

Men, be gentle with women. Remember, they have to sit down on that cold seat every time and you only once or twice a day and, with proper timing, you can catch it while it is still warm.

Slow Learners

"We are in danger of being overwhelmed with irredeemable paper, mere paper representing not gold, not silver, no sir, representing nothing but broken promises, bad faith, bankrupt corporations, cheated creditors and a ruined people." Daniel Webster, Speech in the US Senate, 1833. We sure are slow learners. William Fortner 2011

Outlaw Prostitution!

Harry Reid: ‘The time has come for us to outlaw prostitution’
...maybe this could spread to DC and the Congress and Administration could be prevented from selling themselves for campaign contributions from special interests. Since prostitution is selling oneself for money, I see little difference.

Ponce De Leon

In a flash of incredible brilliance it occurred to me how stupid Ponce De Leon was. He was looking for a “Fountain of Youth" where the trees are so old they have beards that hang down to the ground. William Fortner 2011

War On Poverty

We must end the war on poverty. The government has already taken 43% of the nation prisoner. We can’t afford any more victory!

AZ Shooter

So the AZ shooter is a member of the “tolerant LEFT” and described as "quite liberal" and as a "political radical" by a close friend. I wonder what his enemies say about him? The media seems to be overlooking this bit of well as the rest of the “Kill Bush and Cheney” hate rhetoric spouted daily by the “tolerant” left for 8 years going on 10 now. They seem, however, remarkably able to remember everything Sarah Palin ever said that could be twisted into something it was not though. Apparently, the left’s “tolerance” only extends to those who think and act as exactly as they do. The ultimate penalty for being outside their rather narrow zone of tolerance seems to be death.
