WE ARE UNDER ATTACK!!!

In case you haven't gotten what I have been trying to put into words on this blog, here it is in plain English: OUR LIFE AS WE KNOW IT ARE UNDER ATTACK!

You have, I am sure, been hearing a lot about the AIG bonuses and all of that mess. Well, since the House was able to pass a 90% retroactive tax on the bonuses paid to AIG executives. Well, I heard this next thing first on Neal Boortz's show, then on Rush Limbaugh's show. Now, I have read it for myself. So, here it is for you to read.

"[I]n a little-noticed move, the House Financial Services Committee, led by chairman Barney Frank, has approved a measure that would, in some key ways, go beyond the most draconian features of the original AIG bill. The new legislation, the “Pay for Performance Act of 2009,” would impose government controls on the pay of all employees — not just top executives — of companies that have received a capital investment from the U.S. government. It would, like the tax measure, be retroactive, changing the terms of compensation agreements already in place. And it would give Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner extraordinary power to determine the pay of thousands of employees of American companies.
The purpose of the legislation is to “prohibit unreasonable and excessive compensation and compensation not based on performance standards,” according to the bill’s language. That includes regular pay, bonuses — everything — paid to employees of companies in whom the government has a capital stake, including those that have received funds through the Troubled Assets Relief Program, or TARP, as well as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
The measure is not limited just to those firms that received the largest sums of money, or just to the top 25 or 50 executives of those companies. It applies to all employees of all companies involved, for as long as the government is invested. And it would not only apply going forward, but also retroactively to existing contracts and pay arrangements of institutions that have already received funds.In addition, the bill gives Geithner the authority to decide what pay is “unreasonable” or “excessive.”
And it directs the Treasury Department to come up with a method to evaluate “the performance of the individual executive or employee to whom the payment relates.”
The bill passed the Financial Services Committee last week, 38 to 22, on a nearly party-line vote. (All Democrats voted for it, and all Republicans, with the exception of Reps. Ed Royce of California and Walter Jones of North Carolina, voted against it.)"


This includes companies that didn't even want to take the TARP money, like Wells Fargo, but were strong armed into taking money. Now, they won't even have control over what they are going to pay people within their own company. These companies have totally lost control over their own destinies. Just like General Motors and Chrysler.

Let me tell you about something else. You know that part of the king liberal's plan is to force the auto makers to make more hybrids and other alternative energy source cars. Well, let's look at GM for a moment. They have 20 models of cars that are making a profit for them. Of those 20 models, 11 are trucks or SUV's. So, under the government control that GM now falls into, these 11 vehicles that are making the profit for the company are going to go away. Does that make any sense? Not to me it doesn't.

So, this all begs the question, who is coming up with all of this? Well, this all started when the Sierra Club started attacking all the SUV's. It is the liberal environmentalists that are driving all of this. Just the same as they are driving all of the Climate Change nonsense. They want everyone to live the way that they CHOOSE to live. They don't want people to live the way that they want to if it is not in line with what they believe. THIS IS NOT FREEDOM. This is not what I have spent the greater part of my adult life defending. They finally have people in charge of this country who will listen to them and push their agenda.

The Democrats made a push to gain control over this country in the 1930's with the New Deal. They made another push in the 1960's with the Great Society. Now they are making an even greater push this year. Many of them have been quoted as saying that a crisis is opportunity. An opportunity for what? An opportunity for the democrats to try and get their agendas passed.

I am now going to ask, did anyone else notice that when the king liberal was sworn in, that the Constitution was not even mentioned? I believe that that is because he never had any intention in upholding the Constitution. As a matter of fact, he is doing everything he can do to make the Constitution a thing of the past. All of the liberties and freedoms that were guaranteed to us by the Constitution are under attack. And we are under attack by the worst of all enemies, the enemies from within. It isn't really about people, it is about how the Democrats can gain control.

We need to fight to get our country back, because, right now, it is no longer ours. It is under attack and we are the only one's who can save it and save our way of life.
