The things that come from the mouth of socialists. Hugo Chavez’s boy crush, Sean Penn, must be proud of his favorite dictator.
CARACAS (Reuters) – Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela’s socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday.
“I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet,” Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day.
Chavez, who also holds capitalism responsible for many of the world’s problems, warned that water supplies on Earth were drying up.
“Careful! Here on planet Earth where hundreds of years ago or less there were great forests, now there are deserts. Where there were rivers, there are deserts,” Chavez said, sipping from a glass of water.
He added that the West’s attacks on Libya were about water and oil reserves.
Chavez sounds like your typical socialist Democrat. Sen. Markey (D-Mass.) also said the attack was about oil, eventhough the US doesn’t import oil from Libya.

Everyone, please help this dead man with his last wish. PLEASE!
THE WOODLANDS, TX– A paid obituary for a Houston-area man who died of cancer recently urged mourners to, in lieu of flowers, “please make a donation to ANYONE running against” President Barack Obama.
James Harrison of The Woodlands died Feb. 27 at the age of 68. The obituary approved by his family also suggested donations to the American Cancer Society as an alternative.
Harrison was a retired food-service worker. John Rundlof, his stepson, told KRIV-TV of Houston that Harrison “was an avid Republican and just took that to the grave with him.” Rundlof said Harrison wrote the appeal for donations to Obama opponents himself before he died.James Harrison of The Woodlands died Feb. 27 at the age of 68.

Obama has lost the independent vote so he has to hope for amnesty for millions of criminal illegal immigrants. He has to bolster those voter rolls anyway he can. Why can’t the President understand that ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL?
The Washinton Times reports:
…The president also sought to reassure El Salvador – which has nearly 2 million of its citizens living in the U.S. – that he’s still committed to shepherding comprehensive immigration legislation through Congress, though he acknowledged the politics are tough.
“America is a nation of laws, and it is a nation of immigrants. And so our job is to create secure borders, to make sure that we’ve got a legal immigration system that is effective and is not frustrating for families, doesn’t divide families,” he said, citing declining Republican support for a bill that would lay out a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. “My hope is that they begin to recognize over the next year that we can’t solve this problem without taking a broad, comprehensive approach.”
What we need is a President who will enforce our country’s IMMIGRATION laws and keep ILLEGAL immigrants out.

And Obama starts a war that will cost untold billions. It’s OK taxpayers. Maybe the Fed will print more money with a 3rd round of quantitative easing.
The United States is on a fiscal path towards insolvency and policymakers are at a “tipping point,” a Federal Reserve official said on Tuesday.
“If we continue down on the path on which the fiscal authorities put us, we will become insolvent, the question is when,” Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher said in a question and answer session after delivering a speech at the University of Frankfurt. “The short-term negotiations are very important, I look at this as a tipping point.”
But he added he was confident in the Americans’ ability to take the right decisions and said the country would avoid insolvency.
Americans aren’t the problem, its the overspending politicians in Washington who have a spending problem.
“I think we are at the beginning of the process and it’s going to be very painful,” he added.
Fisher earlier said the US economic recovery is gathering momentum, adding that he personally was extremely vigilant on inflation pressures.
Just ignore the revised GDPs that continue to prove the opposite. Food and energy prices have already been affected by inflation. Look around, the numbers don’t lie.
“We are all mindful of this phenomenon. Speaking personally, I am concerned and I am going to be extremely vigilant on that front,” Fisher said in an interview with CNBC.

Anything Obama says has an expiration date but damn…it was only one day ago.
Obama has flip-flopped on getting rid of Gadhafi as well:
That was Obama on Monday.
Today, he changed his mind and is open to Gadhafi staying in power.
From Politico 44:
President Obama indicated on Tuesday that Muammar Qadhafi may still have an opportunity to “change his approach” and put in place “significant reforms” in the Libyan government.
Asked by NBC’s Savannah Guthrie what the U.S. commitment is in Libya if Qadhafi remains in power but continues to pose a threat to his people, Obama appeared to leave the door open for political reforms.
“You are absolutely right that as long as Qadhafi remains in power, and unless he changes his approach and there are significant reforms in the Libyan government that allow the Libyan people to express themselves, there are still going be potential threats against Libyan people—unless he is going to step down,” Obama said.
Can Obama make a simple decesion and stick to it. Thanks a lot flip-flopper-in-chief. Continue on with your Latin American spring break.

As we all know, anything Obama says has an expiration date. Here’s the latest examples:
That was Obama in 2009.
Here’s Obama’s flip-flop in 2011:
The Washington Examiner reports:
The White House is shifting toward the more aggressive goal in Libya of ousting President Moammar Gadhafi and “installing a democratic system,” actions that fall outside the United Nations Security Council resolution under which an international coalition is now acting, according to a conversation between President Obama and Turkey’s prime minister.
Obama and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke late Monday and “underscored their shared commitment to the goal of helping provide the Libyan people an opportunity to transform their country, by installing a democratic system that respects the people’s will,” according to a White House report on the phone call.
The rhetoric matches Obama’s reiteration on Monday that it is still U.S. policy that “Gadhafi needs to go.”
But it is a marked contrast to the U.S.-led military mission as defined by the U.N. resolution.

From the usual suspects: Radical Leftists, Union goons, community organizers and weak-minded liberal students who want to take down capitalism to redistribute the wealth. Sounds like someone we have sitting in the White House.
What these lefties are speaking about is equivalent to economic terrorism. If they bring down Wall Street, the US economy would collapse. What these idiots don’t realize is the rich will not be affected. They have money. The poor would be the group to suffer the greatest from such a left-wing scheme.
Notice the dolts speaking about Frances Fox Piven, one of the c0-creators of the Cloward-Piven Strategy? This is the same strategy they want to use to bring down the U.S. economy. Overwhelm the system so it crashes. Then rebuild it. What’s the opposite of capitalism? SOCIALISM.
The man speaking on the tape is former SEIU goon Stephen Lerner.The Business Insider has more:
A former official of one of the country’s most-powerful unions, SEIU, has a secret plan to “destabilize” the country. The plan is designed to destroy JP Morgan, nuke the stock market, and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power, thus creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.
The former SEIU official, Stephen Lerner, spoke in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend.
The Blaze procured what appears to be a tape of Lerner’s remarks. Many Americans will undoubtely sympathize with and support them. Still, the “destabilization” plan is startling in its specificity, especially coming so close on the heels of the financial crisis.
Lerner said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore–the redistribution of wealth and the return of “$17 trillion” stolen from the middle class by Wall Street–is to “destabilize the country.”
Lerner’s plan is to organize a mass, coordinated “strike” on mortgage, student loan, and local government debt payments–thus bringing the banks to the edge of insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of the loans. This destabilization and turmoil, Lerner hopes, will also crash the stock market, isolating the banking class and allowing for a transfer of power.
Lerner’s plan starts by attacking JP Morgan Chase in early May, with demonstrations on Wall Street, protests at the annual shareholder meeting, and then calls for a coordinated mortgage strike.
Lerner also says explicitly that, although the attack will benefit labor unions, it cannot be seen as being organized by them. It must therefore be run by community organizations.
Lerner was ousted from SEIU last November, reportedly for spending millions of the union’s dollars trying to pursue a plan like the one he details here. It is not clear what, if any, power and influence he currently wields. His main message–that Wall Street won the financial crisis, that inequality in this country is hitting record levels, and that there appears to be no other way to stop the trend–will almost certainly resonate.

It is amazing that these leftist goons are telling their followers to stop paying their mortgages and student loans as President Obama is trying to force banks to help delinquent borrowers. It also makes sense because the Obama regime has also taken over the college loan market.
People need to wake up and realize that we have an enemy worse than al-Qaeda. It is the radical leftists and union goons who would love to destroy the economy.

The sudden popping up of a Libyan no fly zone is an interesting turn. The conflict in Libya was mostly over. Except for all the hand wringing in the rest of the world, for the most part Libya had settled back down. Then Qaddafi decided to get bold, run his mouth about the pending day of reckoning as he was going to crush the rebels and Shazam! He we go with oil prices rising again.
I find the timing of international intervention to be curious at best. Why was the US hands off when it was pretty bad in Libya, yet when things began to calm, suddenly the no fly zone was so important? It all seems so odd, ill-timed and almost as if there is an ulterior motive. I know that sounds a bit paranoid and suspicious but I just don’t get it.
With gasoline prices already near $10.00 a gallon in the EU it would seem doing anything other than the absolutely necessary that would cause fuel prices to rise would be avoided like the plague. But some EU members wanted the no fly zone, so I don’t pretend to be able to answer their odd timing. Maybe because Libya is decidedly closer to the EU than to the US is some of the impetus…I don’t know, but I do find US participation an odd turn of events.
The possibility for more unrest in Libya is now present due to this turn of events? If the Libyan strife ends isn’t it rather likely, as oil prices have shown in the last few days, that prices would begin a slow decline to hopefully more rational levels? They’d already begun to decline as the unrest in Libya calmed. Remember, oil prices didn’t rise because Qaddafi was still in charge. They rose on fears that he might do something crazy and desperate like set his oil fields alight, as well as the declined production due to the unrest in Libya.
I know it sounds a bit paranoid and unfair to Obama perhaps, but I just find this to be bizarre. Even when the Arab League wished for a no fly zone, now they are displeased about planes “occupying” Libyan airspace. I warned that this situation was rife with problems in an earlier article and now they come home to roost.

He’s breaking constitutional law. He’s doing it for oil. Most would think his was being shouted by Republicans. However, these shouts are coming from Obama’s own party. Trouble in ObamaLand.
The Hill reports:
The United States military action against Libya is motivated by a desire for affordable and accessible oil, a top Democrat on environmental issues said Monday.
Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), the ranking member of the House Natural Resources Committee, said that he agreed with President Obama’s decision to launch, along with allies, attacks against Libya and its leader, Moammar Gadhafi. But Markey said the attacks were primarily motivated by oil.
“We are in Libya because of oil,” Markey said on MSNBC. “It all goes back to the 5 million barrels of oil we import from OPEC on a daily basis.”
“I think all Americans know why the president made this strike,” he said. “As long as no American soldiers are on the ground … then I think it’s a good decision for the president.”
Markey is the same Democrat trying to push the cap-and-trade scheme. Basically he is trying to say that if the U.S. had ‘renewable energy,’ Obama wouldn’t have attacked Libya. However, being a dumb Democrats, Markey doesn’t know that the U.S. doesn’t import any oil from Libya.
Political unrest in Libya and other Middle Eastern nations with high oil production contributed to higher prices per barrel of crude oil, which translates to higher energy costs — particularly in gasoline. (Oil was up to above $102/barrel as of midday trading on Monday.)
The increased energy prices led Obama to hold a press conference earlier this month in which he renewed calls for more production of renewable energy, and said he would consider opening the Strategic Petroleum Reserves if oil prices continued to rise.
Just don’t ask him to allow U.S. companies to drill for our own oil. That would be common sense and go against his plans to make energy prices skyrocket.
