Media 101: If There's No Racial Conflict, Create It

By Bobby Eberle

The presidential election is less than two months away, and there are plenty of issues about which the voters are unhappy and dissatisfied. More debt than any president in history? Yep. Class warfare and division. Sure thing. High unemployment and a stagnant economy? Definitely. But his racial background? Come on... give me a break!

There's nothing more frustrating than when the media manufacture news. Rather than letting events unfold and then reporting those events to the viewers or readers, some so-called "journalists" create stories out of thin air. In these cases, the goal is not to inform or educate, but rather to influence. That's exactly what's going on in a recent "racial bias" news story by the Associated Press.

The headline for the story reads "Does racial bias fuel Obama foes? How to tell?" When I first saw this story, I didn't even think I'd be able to get past the headline and keep reading. In an instant, I knew that this was a story designed to make the reader come to a certain conclusion: conservatives are racists. But, I kept going just to make sure.

So, now I've moved on from the headline. What's the opening paragraph? It's one sentence that reads, "Is it because he's black?" Ugh! Can I stop reading now?

There's so much I can write, and so far, I've only read the headline and opening "paragraph." Of course it's NOT because he's black. I even get so frustrated that he is ONLY referred to as black. Geez... he's as white as I am!! (I'm half white and half hispanic.) But, nonetheless, he's only referred to as black, and that is not the reason people don't like him.

Are there some racists in this country? Of course. What a dumb question, right? I feel I'm at liberty to ask a dumb question, since this AP "reporter" wrote an entire dumb news story. The point is that just because humans are humans and have all sorts of biases, it doesn't mean those biases are the issue. And it CERTAINLY doesn't mean that conservatives are racists as the reporter wants you to believe.

Here are the next two paragraphs:

The question of whether race fuels opposition to President Barack Obama has become one of the most divisive topics of the election. It is sowing anger and frustration among conservatives who are labeled racist simply for opposing Obama's policies and liberals who see no other explanation for such deep dislike of the president.

It is an accusation almost impossible to prove, yet it remains inseparable from the African-American experience. The idea, which seemed to die in 2008 when Obama became the first black president, is now rearing its head from college campuses to cable TV as the Democratic incumbent faces Mitt Romney, the white Republican challenger.

Just look at that first sentence! Race has become one of the most divisive topics of this election? To whom? When? The latest news story on Obama is that he's going after Mitt Romney on the Medicare issue. Romney is on the campaign trail too, and he's talking about jobs. NO ONE is talking about race, except maybe this AP "journalist."

Then there's the next sentence which reads, "It is sowing anger and frustration among conservatives who are labeled racist simply for opposing Obama's policies and liberals who see no other explanation for such deep dislike of the president." Wow! Does this "reporter" honestly think that all liberals feel that any opposition to Barack Obama is racial? What about the dwindling crowds at his own rallies. Those should be full of screaming liberals like they were four years ago, right? Why are they not showing up? Could it be that they are frustrated with Obama's policies and inability to turn the economy around? Hmmmm... Maybe they are racists too?

The article goes on and on and on. In this entire column, I've only analyzed three sentences so far, and yet the meaning of the entire news story is clear. Go ahead, check it out. See if you can read through the entire thing. If you can make it through a few more paragraphs, you will read from an "expert" who says:

"We're at a tipping point," said Susan Glisson, director of the Institute for Racial Reconciliation at the University of Mississippi. "But I don't know which way we're going to tip."

Glisson knows that many conservatives disagree with Obama solely because of his policies. "But I am also quite certain that there are others who object to the president because of his race, because they have a fear of blacks that is embedded in our culture," she said.

What about all those people who voted for him simply BECAUSE he is black? (or half black)

This "news" story is a perfect example of what to look for when reading the news. There are issues that people are concerned about, and there are issues that the media want you to be concerned about. Don't fall for it!

    With his ‘racist’ ‘class warfare’ agenda of the past four years; this man cannot unite Americans. He is the instigator of a ‘welfare’ state to wrest the constitution out of the hands of Americans. This man is a one-man wrecking crew for the socialist / communist left.
    We as Americans had better wake up and get rid of Ozero and his motley crew of communist sympathizers. We have this one chance in November to right the ship of state; so regardless of what you have planned make election day 2012 the most important date to date.

    Vote Romney / Ryan

      I have been more involved in this election than any other. To the point when my family sees me watching anything to do with this election, I am left to myself to rant and rave. I watched all the Republicans debates and watched Romney destroy all candidates. Then I sat silent after, and watched obama take him apart with untold countless “unanswered” attacks. So this is what I see…I will volt Romney/Ryan but I feel they are too scared of the word “race” to run an effective campaign. He is not putting enough heart into his campaign. Between the two it looks like Ryan is the stronger?????. Romney has let the Democrats walk all over him just as McCain did. AND NOW the DOJ is suing gallop because they do not like the polling numbers. This administration has sued Texas over voter Id laws they have sued Florida over voter purging. There has been a law suit in Ohio over military early voting. Now they are suing Gallop because they don’t like the jobs poll number. The Democrats will stop at nothing to get re-elected and Romney will run a “Dudley Do right campaign; will loose and we will be forced to endure another four years of. As you can tell I am pretty upset with the whole thing and feel if Romney does not have what it takes to win, why he not just let someone else take on the Democrats.

    Yeah, it’s because he’s black. Even though I’d vote for West, Rice, Cain, etc. It’s strictly cause he’s half black. It has nothing to do with his stellar record as president. He’s done such a great job with this Country. The economy is roaring, unemployment is almost non-existent, every Country in the World worships us. It’s just that ….well you know, he’s black.

      Yep, and we opposed Carter because he was black, Mondale: black, Dukakis: also black, Clinton: (the first black president until Obama)… so opposed because he was black, Gore: how black can you get?

      It’s obvious… nothing to do with policies, it’s all racial. If you’ll excuse me I need to go cut some eye holes in a pillow case.

      Are there some racists in this country you ask? Yes, most reside in the Democrat party of collective fear and the weak, who when confronted with equal challenges, and fail on the equal playing fields of free American competition, fall back on their crutches of racist “It’s Whitey’s fault” every chance they get. Racist emotional self-made invalids who always enjoy their well earned failure and poverty.

      You bode the question of Who’s the racist? It is obviously the party that constantly edifies our race and our division over our common humanity and unity, over our sameness and sanity, in order to keep us at heel and keep us dependent upon them and their power over us. Wake up African Americans of once noble American blood and ideology, and claim your share of the American dream which will only be acquired by ignoring the race bating panderers of a Once proud but now tainted American Democrat Party of failure, who must keep you in a posture of failure to keep them in a posture of success by wielding their tainted power of manipulation over your minds and purses through the real power of hatred and manufactured racism.

      Ollie_Fan, we also had other blacks for president. From Herman Cain to Alan Keyes, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Michael Steele, JC Watts, to Allen West, all would have made far better presidents than Barack Obama and many perhaps better than Mitt Romney. In addition, conservative Republicans would have supported them. But just get a progressive Democrat to admit this. It doesn’t fit their plantation narrative.

    Let’s see, do we dislike this president’s policies? Yes. Is the president black? Yes. Therefore (in liberal “il”logic) we dislike this president because he’s black. Isn’t that what they’re saying? Instead of stopping at the end of the first sentence, which “they” did for “W,” (they just hated him) they look for a reason (because, “hey, who could dislike his policies? it must be because he’s black.”) That’s the biased media for ya. Been hearing about it for years, now there it is, not in living color, but in black and white.

    This cool dude is chimin in on what’s good for the hood.

    Why…did I say Why ? Why are so many people supporting him ? Before he was elected some of us noticed his transparency. He was a liar and a showman full of empty promises he couldn’t keep. No One…did I say No One ? No One who told me they were voting for Obama could tell me why. And that’s da trut ! Did you see him point out with a dollar bill that the man wasn’t black ? Twenty years in a black church hearing “God D–n America”. There were no details or documents to prove anything but his history was obvious. He wasn’t elected to run this country, he was elected because he was black and wanted to help his brothers and sisters who have been listening to Jackson and Sharpton.
    Everyone knows the history about racism but you can’t find many blacks who want to believe it is over. I expect that if I were a black person I would be very put out with Obama.

    You know what, I give up. I have many black friends including one that goes back to the early years of high school. I would trust him with my life. I believe he is as equal as myself as all other legal minorites. Never had a serious issue with a minority that couldn’t be worked out.

    Since I disagree with 95% of the policies of this small “p” president, it must be because I am a racist. I must be wrong -I must be a racist. Fine, I am down with that. I’m the biggest bigot in America.

    Suppose if Hillary had won the media’s DNC Idol of ’08 and had screwed up this country like BHO did, I would then be considered a femalaphobe. Fine. I just don’t care anyore.

    But I can tell you this, this “racist bigot” is not voting for any democrat for the rest of his life.

    Racism as a priority issue had all but disappeared prior to 2008. Many of my friends, black, white, hispanic, jewish, christian, catholic, oriental and so on are appalled at the amount of racism that has been promoted by the liberal elite, the Democrats who desire so much to help the down trodden. The fact is that the liberals who espouse to help the poor, the elderly, the minority are in fact the racists who desire to so seeds of discontent so that they may continue to destroy this nation.

    The destruction will way most heavily on the minorities and the poor. So whom are they helping? Why only themselves, because in the end the poor, the minorities, the down trodden will find themselves as servants of the elite and that is what the liberals are intentionally promoting with their racial hate messages.

    There was an AP story in our local rag on Monday titled “Are Conservatives Racist?” Clearly this was not a news story but another attempt to paint anyone who opposes Obummer as racist. The writer said in so many words, Sure, there are some people who disagree with the President’s policies but there are others who take issue with the color of his skin. Oh, those others — you have to watch out for them!

    When George Wallace spoke in Omaha when he was running for president numerous Blacks fled Omaha because they knew he brought his own Black agitators with him to use in playing the race card. We Whites knew nothing about it unless so Black informed us and now it is the other way around as Blacks continue to play the race card. Politicians will do whatever it takes to win regardless of race, ethnic background, religion or gender and as long as they can appeal to their supporters emotion using greed, envy or hate they will do so.

Bush destroyed the whole economy and you should know this people.

    It will take more than one presidential term to clear up Bush’s mess, so you should think smart beore allowing another Republican in office as our president. Remember the meek shall inherit the earth. As it was told, it will come to pass wheter you want it to or not it will. Don’t try to tell mother nature how to rule this earth, sh will win in the end.

      “It will take more than one presidential term to clear up Bush’s mess…”

      Back that up with facts, will you? You won’t?

      Here are the facts: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:
      The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
      The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
      The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
      George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
      Remember the day…
      January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
      The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
      BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
      Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
      Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
      And who took the THIRD highest payoff from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA
      And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress
      So when someone tries to blame Bush…
      REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”
      Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.
      Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
      In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.
      For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.
      And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.
      If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
      If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

      Jim Red, have you noticed lately how testy the Democrats are about when to start counting job losses and economic indicators? They claim that no one can blame Obama for anything from the very beginning of his term in office because his policies hadn’t been implemented yet. I beg to differ. The starting point of the lousy economic indicators are owned by Obama from the moment he won the election on November 4, 2008. From that date forward, businesses understood that they were about to experience great antipathy from the Federal government, and they acted accordingly to reduce their risk. Risk management is a key function for any business, and Obama has been the biggest risk of all, short of war or a mile-wide meteor striking the Earth.

      solrak, are you that unaware or inerudite that what broke our economy was the mortgage crisis? Who was responsible for that? Wasn’t it Pres. Carter and the Democrats who passed the Community Reinvestment Act to force banks to lend to people who likely couldn’t pay back the loans? Wasn’t it the impeached Pres. Clinton with the help of ACORN who threatened banks to force them to make more shaky loans? And wasn’t it the homosexual Rep. Barney Frank with a roommate who ran a gay prostitution ring from his home office, and Sen. Dodd who got preferential mortgage loan from Countrywide Financial who prevented Pres. Bush from addressing the dangers to Freddie Mac and Fannie May?

      Maybe you’d like to say to me “you pedople (sic) are so dumb stupid” for wanting to get rid of a Fabian socialist president who has appointed a number of socialists and communists and who uses fascism to fundamentally change the USA into the USSA.

      By the way for an aliterate person like you, “Fascism is an economic model in which the state dictates the utilization of privately held assets to achieve public policy goals.” It’s the other side of the coin of authoritarianism, that side being socialism.

    I had the exact reaction when I read this AP story in my local paper.
    When I see AP pieces, the articles are almost all as slanted as this one was. Sometimes I don’t even read the entire article because I know what it is going to say. So many times, I start forming a “letter to the editor” in my mind right after reading another of these articles. But then I realize that it won’t do any good at all. The paper certainly is not going to stop printing AP articles…otherwise our newspaper would consist of only 6 pages! Our local newspaper is “all AP all the time”. I’ve written numerous letters to the editor…printed in the newspaper very rarely. But about once a month there is an editorial stating that they are not biased at all. Sigh….

Talk about slanted-bias-racist (I could list more but I think you get my drift) the news media can and does effect how America views so many issues but to say that we are against Obamie because he is black is trying to move us away from why we really don’t need 4 more years of him! His record speaks for it’s self! Keep us focused on the things that really matters! This country has turned away from God and untill we turn back the the God believing country that we were before we allowed prayer to be taken out of our schools, this country will continue to fail!
    We REALLY need to vote OUT everyone that is running for re-election (both parties)and fire every reporter that does NOT report the truth (and prove it) and turn our faces back to Jesus Christ and God the Father!

    This should not be surprising to anyone. The media is attempting to obfuscate the truth about jobs, the failing economy, liberty and freedom, and the failed policies of the Obama administration by stirring the racial pot. It worked in 2008 with “White Guilt” – pity the Black man running for President and vote for him as a gesture of repentence for past sins; and if Americans are as stupid as they think, it will work again in 2012. Hopefully, they are not that stupid! I guess we will see in November 2012. God bless us if he is re-elected.
    If you critize BHO’s economic policies, you are a racist. If you call him a failure as President, you are a racist. If you think he is a Radical Muslim Socialist, you are a racist. If you says that he is a consumate liar and a cheat, then you are even more of a racist. If you say BHO wants to destroy The Constitution and with it the middle class, then you are most certainly a racist. The media wants you to both like and pity him. They are protecting him by casting a racial stigma on anyone who dares to speak the truth about BHO. This is their strategy, and our should be to ignore them and speak the truth. Shout it from the roof tops now, lest you may lose the privilege to do so. BHO need to go, and this is the time to boot the tryant out of office before he destroys the middle class, and this great country of ours. God Bless America.

    The use of the Media to create conflict is right out of the Communist Playbook as documented in the 1963 Congressional Record. Since Obama himself is a Marxist who has surrounded himself with other Socialists including the Card-Carrying Communist David Axelrod, it is clear they are following the Marxist Playbook.

    Solid studies have been done in the American Electorate that prove that Obama’s claimed Blackness is actually a help for him due to White Guilt and the Leftist proclivity towards upending Civil Society. More so, only 4% of the electorate will NOT vote for Obama because of his Blackness while 18% of the electorate will NOT vote for Romney because of him being a Mormon. The Media is clearly in Obama’s Camp.

    Here are a few examples from the 1963 Congressional Record on Communist Plans for America:
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.

    The media refuses to admit its liberal bias in the same manner that a sonorous cowpoke shouts, “Snore? I don’t snore!

    Sorry again for my long post, I must say what I feel, and it takes me more words than most, go get my point across to my own satisfaction.

    In reality, this election has nothing whatsoever to do with the presidents color. It does not matter if he is white, blue, greed, red, or crimson in the minds of the general population.
    These race batters know full well, that this man sitting in the Presidents chair has not a single leg to stand upon, when it comes to his non loyalty, and miserable failure at doing his job. So they have to create another reason why he should be elected, so they fill the air with that old cliché, implying that if you don’t vote for him, it is purely because he is a man of color, and you obviously do not approve of that.

    Where was all this sentiment when he won the Presidency in 2008?. Does the fact that he won the election prove that at that time there were many many more non racists than there are this round?. Very, and quite simply, even if he was white, which he is, half white, it would have nothing whatsoever to do with how he performs the duties of President, and I very loosely use the term in his case.
    America, or the people of America, have not gained one thing to the positive since he took the office.
    Immediately, he froze all of his records so that no one could question his very sketchy and shady background. He said we are no longer a Christian Nation, He said he was going to transform America, as if it needed his help to the negative. He has no experience in any capacity to be President, He is the most phantom figure ever, but we are supposed to overlook this because he is black?.
    He swore to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic, yet he is the greatest abuser of that vow. He goes around it at will, seemingly with not even Conservatives objecting to his dirty deeds. He should have impeached twice within his first year, due to his contrary decisions to the Constitution, and We the People. He literally has 0 respect for our Country, and so often shows us this. He hates Americans, but of course we are racists if we object to any of the carnage he inflicts upon our Country, and us, near daily. Yes, I guess I am a racist, if that means that this mans destruction of our Country is contrary to my ideals and creeds.
    Yes, I guess I am a racist if I hate, not the man, but each and every thing he stands for politically.
    I guess I am a racist, if I despise anyone who tries to take God, and Christianity from us, while quoting from the quran.
    Yes, I guess I am a racist if I see with my own eyes what he tries to do to my family, and every other family in the United States of America, which is contrary to all the freedoms, we have had for the last couple of hundred years paid for at the cost of much pain, sorrow, maim, and death of our Military heroes.
    God bless our Country, God bless all those who fight for our freedoms,
    God bless each and every one, who suddenly feels tossed into the trash by our Current Administration.
    I pray God, that you will open the blinded eyes of the media, so that they can clearly see the evil in the man they so humbly protect and defend.
    I Pray God that you will bring misery of mind upon any of those ignorant enough to deny you, your Son, and all your Children through Christ Jesus Amen.

    AMERICAN CANDIDATE IN THE SEAT OF POWER IN OUR COUNTRY.

    When I think of the people I know who have issues with race I am reminded that there are functioning fools walking around all over the place. God loves everyone and wants us to, also. He sees no specific race. God also said that the fool has said in his heart that there is no God. Considering the democrat’s attempt to remove God from their platform…well, if the shoe fits, they should wear it.

    Here I will furnish some News.
    Leaning to the left are the majority of what they call News. Leaning to the right are the rest of the so called News stations who they say “in all fairness” we report from both sides. Most reporting of news now is expressing opinions.
    Mostly what we get from both are an abundance of commercials. And Last but not Least…Women are taking over as what they call journalists or reporters. They usually have long blond hair, a solid color dress, lotsa leg. Whatever their purpose is they do a pretty good job. Unfortunately sitting there listening to them is about as enjoyable as listening to someone drag their fingernail down a chalkboard. They all sound alike as if they are pinching their nose and yelling. Their mouth moves but they nose talk. Some words cannot be pronounced properly doing this. I just change channels but if you want news, expect the same.

    obama must be put on the defensive, to explain his failure in

    So let it be known to one and all….I do not like, or approve of Barack Hussein Obama. Why? Is it because he is black? NO. Is it because he is half white? No. Is it because he is a person of many colors? No. It is because he hates America, denies God, and Christ, and is out to destroy America as we know and love it.

    What good has BHO done since he has been in office? None. What harm has he caused? He has driven us six trillion dollars deeper into debt. He has kept us from getting jobs with his stupid policies. He is proposing even greater tax hikes which will make it even more difficult to emerge from this recession in the near future. He keeps fuel prices high with his stupid policies. He buys votes, welfare, union, illegals, and any others he can buy….using our tax money to do so. He promotes homosexuality. He promotes the killing of defenseless babies in their mother’s wombs. Face facts the man is evil and should not be our leader. Vote him out and end this reign of terror.

    I am writing to express my disappointment about our president and his economic policies, plus campaign tactics. One item in particular bothers me for the immediate moment. Joe Biden is quoted on the campaign trail as saying “Republicans would like to put y’all back in chains”. I understand mudslinging is a part of the process, but this is taking it a bit too far, and very unbecoming. Biden should be called on the carpet for this to make a public apology and retract his statement. Does the presidential campaign want a race war? It seems like it to me, and Mr. Obama will not be getting my vote. I am a registered republican, however I am not stuck on political party and I vote on issues. I highly believe that sometimes we need right-wing policies and sometimes we need left-wing policies, depending on the circumstances and long-term versus short-term goals. I would vote for democratic candidates such as Bill Clinton (if he could run again) or Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter (if he could run again), Al Gore, and I can name a few more, but they are not running. Mr. Obama is a disgrace to America, as well his wife for wasting tax payer money on her lavish vacations, especially in these economic conditions. Then listening to Obama speak about his wife not getting a salary, and he feels guilty about all his wife had to give up to become the first lady. It all makes me ill. And these are my personal dislikes, first of all because they are the most brief and unimportant, so I thought I would get that out of the way first.

    Relating to what is the most important, foreign and economic policies, plus the budget. I do agree with Obama not to make a pre-emptive strike on Iran, however the way he disrespects the PM of Israel is not acceptable. It is a serious crisis and he is doing very little in terms of other means of support, and just sitting on the fence. Please ask “Mr. President” to meet with the PM of Israel and face the issues with him. He is too busy on the campaign trail, and on the taxpayers dime I might add, to meet with the PM of Israel. This is just one point I can bring up, but I don’t want to write too long of an email. On the economy, I should not have to say anything about the unemployment statistics, which Mr. Obama highly distorts, because it only went down a little because so many people dropped out of the labor force. I should not have to say anything about the national debt, the fact that a budget has not been passed, the number of people on food stamps, and there is no plan on the table, for which Mr. Obama points his finger at congress. I don’t agree with many components of the healthcare bill, which I downloaded to read myself. Plus I do not agree with raising taxes on the rich, because it will do very little to close the budget gap. One of the top 3 policies that will close the budget gap is to eliminate loopholes for the rich. I have a plan to close the budget gap, which consists of 72% spending cuts and 28% taxes, and the taxes are “mainly” eliminating loopholes and deductions rather than tax increases. So if I, as an average citizen, “in 1 day” can spend a few hours of my day to come up with a plan, why can’t the president?

    My model to close the budget gap, consists of 72% spending cuts and 28% taxes, and the taxes are “mainly” eliminating loopholes and deductions rather than tax increases. The plan is organized by long term (3 years out) and short term (18 years out), and while all policies have short-tem benefits in the 1st 3 years, I defined a policy as long term when the benefit increases by nearly 2 x or more in 18 years, and short term when the benefit has nil or minimal increase after 3 years. While there are other policies that can close the gap faster and by more, they all include tax increases. The number 1 policy that would have the most effect on the budget gap in the short term and the long term is to take away the Bush tax cuts for people with incomes below 250K per year, but I have left that out as an option. And at the same time it does not increase taxes on the wealthy, as the benefits of taxing the wealthy, both in the short term and long term add little help. The top 3 policies (other than eliminating the Bush tax cuts for people with incomes below 250K per year), for the short term and long term are to Cap Medicare, eliminate loopholes (but lower rates), and to reduce troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Long-term Policies:
    -Cap Medicare growth to GDP + 1%
    Savings: 29 Billion by 2015 and 562 Billion by 2030

    -Reduce Taxes, but eliminate loopholes (Bowles – Simpson Plan)
    Savings: 75 Billion by 2015 and 175 Billion by 2030

    -Reduce the number of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan to 30k by 2013
    Savings: 86 Billion by 2015 and 169 Billion by 2030

    -Allow expiration of Bush Tax Cuts for incomes above 250K per year
    Savings: 54 Billion by 2015 and 115 Billion by 2030
    (FYI If we allowed the expiration of Bush Tax Cuts for all incomes the savings would be 226 Billion by 2015 and 367Billion by 2030)

    -Reduce Mortgage Deduction and others for high income households
    Savings: 25 Billion by 2015 and 54 Billion by 2030

    -Reduce Social Security Benefits for those with high incomes (But allow people over 65 to work tax free and no penalties on benefits for working to a certain limit.)
    Savings: 6 Billion by 2015 and 54 Billion by 2030

    -Reduce non-combat military compensation and overhead
    Savings: 23 Billion by 2015 and 51 Billion by 2030

    -Cut aide to states by 5%
    Savings: 29 Billion by 2015 and 42 Billion by 2030

    Short-term Policies:
    -Other cuts to the federal government (eliminating some agencies, cutting research for fossil fuels, etc…
    Savings 30 Billion by 2015 and 30 Billion by 2030

    -Cut foreign aid in half
    Savings: 17 Billion by 2015 and 17 Billion by 2030

    -Cut 250K government contractors
    Savings: 17 Billion by 2015 and 17 Billion by 2030

    -Eliminate earmarks
    Savings: 14 Billion by 2015 and 14 Billion by 2030

    -Cut pay of civilian federal workers by 5%
    Savings: 14 Billion by 2015 and 17 Billion by 2030

    -Reduce the federal workforce by 10%
    Savings: 12 Billion by 2015 and 15 Billion by 2030

    -Tighten Eligibility for disability
    Savings: 9 Billion by 2015 and 17 Billion by 2030

    -Enact Medical Malpractice Reform
    Savings: 8 Billion by 2015 and 13 Billion by 2030

    How can the president run on a platform of raising taxes?

    EXPLAINING OUR UNITED STATES TAXING SYSTEM WITH BEER

    Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:
    The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
    The fifth would pay $1.
    The sixth would pay $3.
    The seventh would pay $7.
    The eighth would pay $12.
    The ninth would pay $18.
    The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

    So, that’s what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. ‘Since you are all such good customers,’ he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beers by $20. Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.’

    The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers?

    How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’ They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount,and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay. And so:
    The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
    The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
    The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
    The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
    The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
    The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

    Each of the six was better off than before and the first four continued to drink for free, but once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. ‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’ declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, ‘but he got $10!’ ‘Yeah, that’s right,’exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got TEN times more than I!’ ‘That’s true!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!”Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!’

    The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something very important….they didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

    And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes DO get the most benefit from a tax reduction. They also PAY more than the rest. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

    The media is not our friend. We know that, so why would this site and any other credible forum or internet news portal even use AP-sourced articles, except for quoting them to get discussions started? The liberal, socialist/statist/Democrat PR machine media is obviously lazy since the AP dominates what they repeat as fact. The AP seems to be the top distributor of liberal talking points, on the first tier below the snakes in the Obama administration who think them up in the first place. Echoing earlier posts, Romney and Ryan had better put their big boy pants on and punch their opponents square in the nose and stay on message, just as Allen West did in his congressional campaign in 2010. This business of saying “Obama is a nice guy” is a distraction in itself. He is NOT a nice guy- he is a vicious, destructive, cunning enemy of the state who has committed fraud and treason against the American people. The Romney campaign MUST dictate the narrative and put Obama on defense from here on out, starting with his policies on the economy, foreign policy energy and lack of basic qualifications to hold the office. He has spent more time on the golf course than in staff meetings to frame important decisions.

    This election will be won or lost based on a neighbor-to-neighbor ground game; to educate undecided and so-called “independents” across kitchen tables, on the golf course and at backyard cook-outs. Dyed-in-wool Democrats may not be worth the time at this juncture. I did not watch a single minute of the DNC convention, and I’m sure there are a lot of Democrats in this country who are solidly behind their guy who didn’t watch a minute of the RNC event, either. The Sheeple and dumb-masses who get their “news” from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS,NBC, and NPR are not going to avail themselves for alternative viewpoints because they’re too busy keeping up with the Kardashians and tweeting Oprah on what she had for breakfast, etc.

    As my comrades have well stated above, racism is rampant among blacks for blacks, just as affirmative action has become a reverse discrimination tool for enrollment among public universities. How in the world do you think BHO was admitted to Occidental College, Hah-vad and Columbia, except for affirmative action or a foreign student preference? Thanks for your time, folks.

    As Joseph Goebbels, who I’m sure you all admire,used to say, if you tell a lie often enough it will be the truth. It’s amazing how you can distort facts, embellish non existent matters and blame the ” liberal media “. A perfect example is the Republican GOP convention, Bush, Cheney, Palin, Rove, Powell, were all nowhere to be seen, mmmmmm maybe if we do not talk about them, we can say “they never existed..

      Yet the Democrats are trying to propagate the canard that Romney wants to just go back to the policies of Bush. But I suppose you think the Republicans should be castigating Bush and Cheney. By the way, Palin wasn’t part of any Republican administration. Yet Obama won’t run on his own record. You seem to have mastered Goebbels techniques.

    From Herman Cain to Artur Davis, Alan Keyes, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Michael Steele, JC Watts, to Allen West, all would have made far better presidents than Barack Obama and many perhaps better than Mitt Romney. In addition, conservative Republicans would have supported them.

    But just try to get a progressive Democrat to admit this. It doesn’t fit their plantation narrative with their hatred for the loyal opposition.

      Sadly, it seems the GOP is stuck with establishment older rich white men for the top spot on tickets. But I would have loved to see a Rubio/Rice ticket or Rice/Jindal one or similar mix. It would have driven the Democrats crazy, or at least crazier.

      Both Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter have said if the GOP can’t beat Obama this November then conservatives, libertarians, and constitutionalists should abandon the Republican Party permanently and go to a third party, or perhaps start a political Tea Party. Of course that’s if we have elections in 2016.

      By the way, I’s a Heinz 57 Hispanic conservative curmudgeon.

    Why would the party of slavery, KKK, and segregation play the race card? Could it be because it’s still run by the old Mayor Daley Chicago Mob Democrat Political Machine in collusion with socialists and communists who believe creating strife and perhaps a revolution are the best ways of governance?

    redsea,
    excellent presentation. Thanks for sharing, although judging from the star posters, you must have ticked off some, by telling it like it is.
    I am guessing that they are one of the four, who do not like to have it shoved in their face, that they get a free ride.
    You are correct, if those wealthy decide to stop paying for those who live off the Government, OUR TAXES, they are very likely at some point to move to a country which does not condemn them for their wealth, but instead, appreciates the fact that they DO contribute more than those who are not wealthy, and those in poverty.
    Too many in this Country are so busy, like pigs, eating the free corn put out daily for them, that they do not realize that slowly fences are being built around them, one side at a time. Once the gate is built, and closed with them inside, they have lost their once cherished freedoms, and are then slaves/property to those who built the fences, BIG GOVERNMENT. This, for those who might not understand my comment, is how one goes about catching wild pigs. It works on just about any living thing willing to eat the free meal provided, simply by changing the menu to their individual likings.

    GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY,
    TAKE OUT THE TRASH IN NOVEMBER,
    BY ELECTING THE AMERICAN CANDIDATE

      Very Strong Analogy. I am a proponent of reforming the system of welfare to a system of workfare. I suppose there will be some people who will be unable to work and I have no problem to support these people, and with good quality. But there is too much abuse of the system. The highlight of the story for me is relating it to business and creating jobs. It normally is the people with money who invest in big business, and the higher the risk the higher the profit, so I don’t necessarily have a problem with rich people. They are an asset and can be a benefit to have around, and it does not always equate with corruption.
