Left Versus Right: Statistical Distributions Applied to Geopolitics

by Michael Stollaire

You hear time and time again that we are a center-right country, correct? So, I automagically remember my college statistics classes and the infamous “normal bell curve,” because we come to the conclusion that the average person in America has center-right geopolitical thinking.

However, I think we are approaching a different sample distribution, with a peak on the left and on the right, which is a mini version of what went on during The Civil War, and the civil rights riots in the 1960s, which paints a totally different picture of the average citizen’s political thinking, does it not? Doing the same Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), we have the same geopolitical/ideological average, indicating that America is center-right on the political spectrum; however, we see that America itself is transforming into a nation divided.

Normal Distribution and Probability Distributions ~ Defined:

We’ve got some cognitive dissonance going on in everyone’s head, because the Liberal Socialists and the Constitutional Conservatives have radically different definitions of “right” and “wrong” and “abnormal” and “normal.” Therefore, all of us are disturbed, wondering why we’re upset at what’s going on in the country. All of “us” are saying to ourselves, that something is obviously wrong with “them.” This is a perverse form of brainwashing that has transpired since circa 1900, via the mass media, alternative media, new media, etc. Indeed, we might view the vast majority of the content on television, the radio, corporate controlled internet websites and so forth as an extrapolation of Joseph Goebbels and his “Big Lie” propaganda technique. The reality is that most Americans believe what is in the news, simply because it is in the news. This is my cue to quote The Gipper.

“Trust but VERIFY!” ~ Ronald Reagan

Cognitive Dissonance ~ Defined:

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

If we allow this trend to continue, we will see the economic and geopolitical issues present in Greece and parts of The Middle East to invade our own shores. If you think this cannot happen in America, you have taken your liberty and freedom for granted, as it certainly can and will. There is no reason to panic, but there are plenty of reasons to stand together and fight for what you feel is correct. The Great American Experiment is about allowing men and women to govern themselves, whereas the statist progressives would have you believe that you are all little children that need to be taken care of, via regulation of every aspect of your lives. San Francisco’s removal of McDonalds Happy Meal toys is an example: Should America allow people like Nancy Pelosi to decide what food you eat? I think the answer is a definitive NO, as if we allow them to regulate our food intake, they will take even more steps towards a Nanny State paradigm. What’s next? Letting them tell you what clothes you will wear, and so forth?

Draw the line in the sand, and take your country back, before it is taken from you. If your freedom and liberty is lost, it will be lost forever. We The People… UNITED WE STAND!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~ Ronald Reagan

God bless you, your family and friends, and God Bless America!

Let’s get to work!

God Bless America and As Always…

THE SUBJECT: Raising The Debt Ceiling ~ TIME TO CUT UP THE CREDIT CARDS!!!

Raising The Debt Limit ~ Time to Cut the Cards Up!

Raising The Debt Limit ~ Time to Cut the Cards Up!

by Michael Alan Stollaire

I’ve viewed a great many charts, graphs and projections on this issue, along with soliloquies from politicians that Shakespeare would be envious of, plus a healthy dose of finger-pointing, but let’s break it down to a minimal level: Washington DC cannot be trusted with the money of The American Taxpayer, and it is time for We The People to cut their credit cards up!

If the deal that is brewing behind mahogany doors in DC does not include trillions of dollars of cuts, a steadfast stance on slashing tax rates across the board, and the dismantling of entire departments, such as The Department of Education, The Department of Energy, The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), etc. we are headed towards a wholesale default. This means that the phrase on our Treasury Bills (a.k.a., America’s sovereign debt) that reads “backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government” is going to turn into a strong sell indication on Wall Street.

Here is a brief timeline on what could potentially transpire:

  1. The Democrats and Republicans continue to play the “us versus them” game, doing what is best for their political parties, themselves, and the special interests that support them instead of doing their job, which is to do what is best for their constituency ~ We The People.
  2. Both parties continue to say that they are willing to work with the other side of the aisle with public speeches indicating this, which will be worthy of consideration for The Academy Award, but will be just acting, as they have absolutely no intention to do so.
  3. Several bi-partisan solutions will be fronted, and none of them will be found acceptable by the other side. There will be talk of compromise, but zero action to lead to any compromise. Instead, the typical tactics will be used by the liberals, indicating that the fiscally sane ideas of conservatives will benefit “the fat cats” and lead to a middle-class Armageddon, a severe, current financial impact to Senior Citizens so they cannot afford food/prescription drugs, etc. and I would not be surprised if the Obama administration accuses Boehner of stealing candy from babies.
  4. Time runs out and August 2nd hits ~ America officially defaults on its national debt.
  5. Standard and Poors (S&P) and Moody’s have their long-awaited “I Told You So” moment, and they deeply downgrade America’s debt rating from AAA to junk bonds.
  6. Nanny State checks associated with unemployment, welfare, Social Security, etc. stop being issued.
  7. The US Government goes into a partial shutdown, with only a skeleton crew left to hold the fort ~ thousands of state and federal workers get laid off, and/or lose their positions permanently.
  8. “Contagion” officially spreads from The Eurozone to America, and all individuals and nations holding American debt will be brought into a recession/depression whirlpool.
  9. A huge increase in the Treasury Bill yield will have to be put into place, in order to attract trading.
  10. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and NASDAQ tank, making 2008 look like a minor correction.
  11. China and Russia’s assertion that the US Dollar (USD) should no longer be the world’s reserve currency starts to look like a matter of fact.
  12. Since oil is purchased in US Dollars, the move to use The World Bank’s basket of currencies and precious metals known as Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) would supplant this trading mechanism, and America would be forced to convert dollars into SDRs to purchase oil, resulting in a severe uptick in the price of oil.
  13. The price of gas at the pump would increase 25-50% virtually overnight ~ $10/gallon gas is not unthinkable.
  14. In response to energy prices “necessarily skyrocketing,” utility bills go through the roof, and hyperinflation kicks in ~ trucking companies, transportation, food prices, etc. all are increased 10-25% almost instantly.
  15. The engine of the American economy seizes, and corporate America, small business owners and entrepreneurs go into total protection mode, shedding American jobs and all unnecessary expenditures to survive ~ that is IF they don’t go bankrupt and shutter the windows. Main Streets across the nation turn into ghost towns.
  16. Mortgage defaults and foreclosures level the housing industry.
  17. A mass exodus of American corporations is initiated ~ corporate HQs are moved overseas.
  18. A new trend to downsize and outsource most if not all positions rears its ugly head.
  19. Unemployment balloons to over 15-20%.
  20. 25% of all Americans are now on food stamps.

What a second! I just described a double-dip Great Recession, or even Great Depression II ~ exactly what The Obama Administration promised would never occur. It sounds like Obama’s promise that the unemployment rate would never go above 8% if we spent $1 Trillion on bailing out the financial sector, and all of corporate America that was destined “too big to fail.” As soon as The Federal Government of America has the capability to pick winners and losers in the tactical economic landscape, we have a statist scenario and you can kiss the free market system goodbye.

If you want to know who the traitors in American government are, just look at the list of people that voted to raise the debt ceiling. Unless there are trillions of dollars of spending cuts associated with this strategic move ~ including the entitlement programs… ~ we are at the end of the road to a debt crisis of massive proportions, which might result in the world moving off of the US Dollar as the reserve currency, and the eventual destruction of the very sovereignty of The United States of America.

After spending $4 trillion on TARP, several various so-called “stimulus” plans that only stimulated more debt, and doing an end-around on Congress with “Quantitative Easing” Parts I and II ~ like we needed a sequel?! ~ to force unconstitutional taxation without representation upon The American People, I think we should start calling Barack Obama, The Spender In Chief.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! TAKE BACK YOUR COUNTRY!!!

God bless you, your family and friends, and God Bless America!

Let’s get to work!

God Bless America and As Always…

Counting Sheep

Don’t get too excited. I am not going to sing a lullaby to you. To the contrary I want to jar you awake. As we approach the 2012 elections, every party, every political wannabe and every career politician will be assessing the voters to determine how to finesse a winning number… they plan to be counting sheep. Politicians frequently lie. The uninformed, naïve ones mislead because they believe that they can defeat the system once they are elected. The cynical career politicians lie routinely and often. They do not even give the voters the courtesy of crossing their fingers behind their backs as they speak. They will do anything, evade everything and promise enduring fidelity to the Constitution to capture your vote. They will lie. I challenge you to find more than 5 members of Congress or the state legislature who never vote for unconstitutional legislation or resolutions.

If a citizen or a politician believes that some particular law or regulation is worthy but unconstitutional, she or he can implement the process to change the document through an amendment. Just because a politician, a citizen or a group believes something should be permissible or government-sponsored does not make it a legitimate function of government. Good ideas are not necessarily legal or constitutional. Politicians thrive when the sheeple clamor for something that is extra-constitutional. The public outcry provides some modicum of justification for extending government power, and supplies cover for future efforts to suppress our liberty. Politicians may not be the most profound thinkers in the land, but they do know how to count and read polling data.

It becomes impossible to expect the political class to display restraint when the citizens routinely look for government solutions for private sector problems. Just as the three year old child wants every toy in the store, many citizens demand that government correct every default and solve every ill. Our mission should include educating and chiding our fellow citizens to become more self-reliant. We do a reasonably good job of informing them about government inadequacy and over reaching, but we fall short when placing the blame where it lies…with the people who demand more or tolerate it. When things are running smoothly, the people’s vigilance and willingness to accept questionable governing is maximized. When the wheels of government and society begin to wobble, the people are motivated to pay attention, but our action is not initiated until the wheels begin to fall off the government and social structure.

If the people succeed in our attempts to preserve the republic by electing servants who are committed to liberty and the Constitution, then, as we were warned two centuries ago, our cry must be for eternal, effective vigilance. Cockroaches avoid the light, and politicians avoid controversy. The vocal activists must outwork and out shout the looters. If the looters win, we all will be losers. Right now the looters and their political puppets have a huge advantage. They control the levers of power. They control the Federal Reserve. They hold control over most of the media. The looters are firmly entrenched in all levels of the formal academic and educational system. The looters are in positions of power within many of the religious institutions in the nation. The looters are siphoning the energy and heart out of our nation, and leaving behind an empty skeleton. There are, at this late stage, some of our citizens who do not understand that the skeleton is empty…no organs, no muscle, no tissue, no blood. They mistake the collection of bones for the reality that once existed. They have not yet discerned that without blood and muscle, the body cannot survive.

Our mission as patriots and lovers of liberty who must sound the clarion call is to alert our fellows, our families, our co-workers, our churches, our neighbors and everyone we know or meet that the skeleton is empty, and we must labor to rebuild the body. We, all of us, can no longer live the life of compliant sheep. We must stand up to be counted…not as sheep…but as people committed to individual liberty. Perhaps we have the time to prevail…perhaps not. Liberty isn’t easy, and it ain’t cheap.

Obama: Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due?

Obama: Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due?

by Michael Alan Stollaire

Yes, I am giving Obama a few points… well… at least one. For the first time in his entire Presidency he did the right thing: He gave the order to kill Usama Bin Laden, who is the personification of the horror America experienced on September 11, 2001. However, did he do it for the right reasons? Above and beyond that, he seems to be glorifying himself in the mainstream media (MSM), as if he’s the next military genius, like Patton. I know… I know… I’m not shocked, since Obama’s arrogance and ego should be granted their own zip codes; however, I want to make this one point crystal clear:

99.99999999999999999% of the credit for Usama Bin Laden’s assassination goes to the US Military, our Special Forces, The Navy Seals, and 0.000000000000000000001% of the credit goes to Obama acting as Commander in Chief (for once), and executing the command to kill Bin Laden.


Now, where did the intel come from that led to all of this? Of course, from the advanced interrogation techniques that the far-left liberal radicals demonized for years on end, and were about to charge members of the Bush administration with crimes for. I don’t know about all of you, but I can say on the record that if one more person starts talking about waterboarding being torture, I’m going to have a projectile vomiting session right here and now. The Bush/Cheney administration did all the policy work, took all the heat about “going against The Geneva Convention” etc. and Obama (of course) is taking all the credit, as if he led the effort from start to finish.


Can’t you just see Obama staring in the mirror, and seeing a reflection of JFK there, like a political anorexic that has a massively distorted view of himself? He’s probably talking to himself about how awesome he is, and why the term “awesome” needs to be upgraded to a new Wikipedia term, like “awesome 2.0” just to cover his epic awesomeness. Too bad the rest of us see him with 20/20 vision, and the epic failure of Obama’s policies. He is very effective, though… effective at destruction of America’s sovereignty.


Now, let’s look at the excellent timing involved in the situation: Obama’s approval rating is at an all-time low, heading into full-bore 2012 campaign mode, Trump is harassing him to the point of insanity about his long-form birth certificate and school records, and Libya looks like another Vietnam, showing the entire world how weak a “leader” Obama is. The pollers must have soiled their pants at that point, and since we all know now that Obama knew about Bin Laden for several months, that was a good moment to double-tap him, so that he could show up at Ground Zero with the 9-11 families there ~ only the liberal leaning supporters, of course… ~ to get a double-point uptick.


Yes, I am saying that Barack Obama is leveraging our generation’s Pearl Harbor, the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans, and the assassination of public enemy #1 to optimize his chances of re-election.

So now that his approval rating got a boost, he can go back to rallying his far-left radical base. Surprise, surprise! Obama was just on TV, indicating that we have to pass The Dream Act. This so-called “Amnesty” is nothing more than the organized crime/mafia of the liberal family bribing people to buy/steal votes, so they remain in power for decades/centuries to come. They could CARE LESS about the average American, and The American Taxpayer is paying for all of this ~ we are already $14-15 Trillion in debt! Did anyone else vomit, or was it just me? The worst part is that this “bribe people to buy votes” strategy isn’t even ORIGINAL. This is FDR and LBJ on steroids, and another typical move out of the tax and spend liberal playbook.


Before I let you all go, one last point: stop paying attention to the day-to-day events in the media. They are mostly useless, and do you really need to have your eyes glued to the TV, watching Fox News so you can find out the exact shade of purple and the thread count of the turban that Bin Laden was wearing when he got his head blown off? He’s dead, and he’s a coward for using one of his many wives as a human shield. He’s evil, and goodness has prevailed. Thank God for that. However, now that’s all over, and this is a closed-end news story.


Start asking yourself and others the age-old question: Are you better off now, than you were in 2008? For the vast majority of us, the answer is a distinct: HELL, NO! People are getting very upset that Obama’s approval rating is up over Operation Bin Laden ~ however, the reality is that THE ECONOMY will determine if Obama gets elected. Therefore, as long as I’m paying $5 per gallon at the pump, unemployment is 8-10%, and 10-15% of Americans are using food stamps, Obama will get his ass kicked in November 2012, period.

Get over it, and let’s get going. Focus on doing the day-to-day things that are necessary for ultimate victory in 2012, defined as taking The Oval Office, taking the majority in The US Senate, and expanding the GOP majority in The US House of Representatives. I am not talking about RINOs either ~ I am referring to true Constitutional Conservatives, that will lead us out of despair, and into prosperity. This means less posts, and MORE VOTES! Research who is running in your precinct, district and state, and I mean everything from your local school board, all the way to US Senate, and of course, the current GOP candidates (where Herman Cain has established an early lead from his debate slam-dunk!)

Stop talking, and start WALKING! TAKE ACTION!!!

God bless you, your family and friends, and God Bless America!

Let’s get to work!

God Bless America and As Always…

Stay Strong,

The Truth: Redefined

“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
