The End of Personal Privacy
What a great deal to be an American. So many come here-- legally and illegally. Why do they come? They come because of the truthful promise of hope. America is the greatest country in the world, regardelss of the many who would like to bring us down. By the way, those of you out there who would like to bring us down-- we wish you the best in your lives.
People love the idea of America regardless of whether they like Americans per se. In America, from day one, the idividual has more rights than the state. Of course that was before Mr. Obama became in charge of the state.
Would you ever have believed that any President of the United States, would choose to diminish the rights of the people for his own self aggrandizement. Yet, it is has happened. Have you not seen it? President Obama wants to be the full focus of the nation, and he likes it that way. Can a man who becomes President become so powerful that he can position himself as the savior of America, and all others must fall at his feet? It sure seems that way. In 2010, there are some statistics that suggest the Presient gave more sppeches than the number of days in the year. Maybe he is overexposed. Maybe he must be overexposed.
How about his appointing 16,000 more IRS agents now operating in the country. Do you like the idea of the IRS being the big enforcer for any health infractions you may commit. What if you were not as sick as you told the City Inspector? Should you have to pay for bringing in the government just because you thought you were sick? What if you get too sick? Will that be an offense? Will you be arrested? Will Obama stand up for you?
ObamaCare erodes privacy and expands the use of the IRS in mandating that insurers, employers and government agencies all share with one another your personal financial information. These 16,000 new IRS agents mean business. How about that? But, don't worry, they won't misuse any of your personal data in your file which is now in their files. You can trust them as you can trust all of government.
The Coming Tax Increases
George Bush is continually criticized for his tax cuts, yet the rich pay almost all the taxes in America. If the rich had not, for example, chosen to fund college loans and college scholarships at the federal and the state level for the last 50 years or more, yours truly and many others like me could not have paid their own way through college, and would be looking for a nice blue collar job someplace -- if the illegals did not have them all by then. In my case, I would probably still be delivering soda from the local soda company.
For their generosity to the country and for many other reasons, I am happy that the rich get to keep some of their money. Their tax rates are already higher than anybody elses, and their percentage is against a much larger number. So, they pay lots more taxes than me and most Americans. They pay huge wads to the government each year. I think the rich pay enough.
Who wants "the rIch," to pay more? More often than not, it is rich liberals, such as Obama and John Kerry, and others, who would fight to the death to keep their own tax shelters. For these people who constantly lament that the rich should pay more taxes, I say, let them pay more. I would welcome the elite progressives, who are rich, such as Kerry and Obama, to send a few extra bucks in to Uncle Sam each year if it makes them feel good. In fact, they can send a lot more if it makes them feel even better.
The question of the day for those wanting to whack the rich is, "If Obama takes all their money, who will he give it to?" Heck, nobody knows what he did with $900 Billion in 2009 Stimulus money? Don't you think we should know where that went?
Obama has two tunes on taxes. 1. "Whack the Rich," and 2. "The Bush Tax Cuts are Bad." There are no melodies and the songs cannot be hummed. He can solve number two easy by providing a set of Obama tax cuts just like JFK did when the economy in the early 1960's needed a lift. He can give the cuts a clever name such as "The Obama Tax Cuts."
The "Bush Tax Cuts" are huge targets for the Obama /
Pelosi / Reid administration to get them off the books so the government will be all set to scob the rich. Please note Pelosi is crossed out because thankfully the voters spoke loud and clear that she be stripped of her power in November 2010. It is nice to see that Democracy works.
Infanticide is almost at the bottom of the slippery abortion slope!
Years ago it would have been hard for any of us to believe that an intelligent adult human being would permit the killing of a pre-born baby human being in the womb some time before the baby’s birth. Nobody would have believed fifty years or less ago that humans would ever permit such a gross violation of God’s law, “thou shalt not kill.”
Yet, today we see it all the time, and the Supreme Court says it is not against any United States law to take the life of a baby as long as it is in the womb. Many in the United States have dismissed it as fait accompli and something that is and must be. But this is not so and cannot be so. We have no right to kill.
Ironically, the Huffington Post, well known for its “pro-choice” orientation as one of the major backers of Planned Parenthood became pro-life overnight on May 1, 2011. On May 2, the Post published a piece by psychologist Pamela Gerloff insisting on treating each life with dignity — when that life was Osama bin Laden’s. The tiniest infant in the womb has more grace from God than this evil monster who killed thousands of innocent people. It is amazing how twisted pro-choice logic is when a terrorist is involved.
When taxes are inherently excessive, they simply are not paid.
Unlike many essays on this Web site, we not only present the problem here but also the solution. Consider the statement above, "when taxes are inherently excessive, they simply are not paid." History has shown that when taxes were reduced from say the 90% burden of the mid 20th century to something reasonable, government revenue increased. Just like you and I, the rich don't want to be ripped off, and when taxes are fair, they choose to pay their fair share. Watch what you demand in taxes from the rich because, by percentage you may win, but by volume you will definitely lose.
After we set up the problem, we will introduce the solution.
Collapse of the Market
Government does not help when it intervenes in anything. When anybody wants something done, the last group they will call onn is the government. Exceptions exist where the governmen has a monopoly -- such as police and military. Look at the people we elect into office. We know at one time they must have had some modicum of intelligence because they were slick enough to get into office.
When government does x to get y, y never comes. From the stimulus bill for example, which was supposed to get the economy rolling and crete tons of jobs, we got high unemployment and an awful lot of pork sausage for a bunch of bungling, self-serving politicians. Was it not sickening to watch them greedily grab their earmarks, hoping to assure future reelection while people were losing their jobs.
Congress has done such a poor job in recent years, and for that matter in years past also, though not so obviously, that it is no wonder fo many see them a simply a pack of buffoons. They are so bad that they are not looked upon as jokesters, they are in fact the jokes. For Congress to get better reviews from the people, it needs to bein to serve the people.
INDEPENDENCE HALL TEA PARTY PAC ENDORSES DEMOCRAT BRIAN KELLY FOR PA 11TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
This was such a big event in the 2010 Congressional campaign for Brian Kelly that we repeat it here. We are looking for the endorsement again for the Senate in 2012. TEA parties can pick DEmocrats when they are convinced they are conservative.
Wilkes-Barre, PA – May 7, 2010 -- 11th Congressional District candidate Brian Kelly received the endorsement of the Independence Hall Tea Party PAC. Kelly was on hand to receive the endorsement. When he spoke to the crowd, Kelly was interrupted three times for applause. Kelly is the only Democrat in the three state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware) in which the Independence Hall Tea Party Operates, to receive this prestigious endorsement.
The endorsement was announced Sunday April 11, 2010, in Philadelphia.
A huge government, carried by the people, on our backs.
Can you believe what they are doing to US: Bailouts, Porkulus, Debt, Deficits, Cap and Trade Energy Tax, ObamaCare, Socialism, Government Control, and the list goes on. Is it not time that WE THE PEOPLE take back OUR government and make it work for US again. That was my reason for running for Congress and it is why I am trying to replace Robert P. Casey as the Junior Senator from Pennsylvania. This is the right time.
Government has already grown too big, and it is growing even bigger and its bigness is dangerous to our freedom. I want to help restore good government to America, restore prosperity to all. Lower taxes, limited government, and severely reduced spending will mean that we have learned fiscal responsibility, and everybody has more, not less! Government gets nothing to waste.
Capture Back America
Now it is our turn. It is our American duty to hold our leaders accountable when they do not take seriously their oath to uphold the Constitution. America is not supposed to be a Marxist, progressive socialist nation. It is up to US, the underpinnings of democracy, the people of the United States to not sit still but to take action. It is up to US to become part of the grassroots movements such as the great TEA Party movement and join those who are fed up with corruption and the trashing of the Constitution. It is up to US to reclaim our pride, our country, our America - right now, before it is too late. Don't let propaganda diminish your will to be free.
Speak Softly And Carry A Real Big Stick!
I support a Constitutional approach to foreign policy that ensures a strong national defense. Who can argue that at this moment in time, we have the most powerful, most advanced military in the history of the world. In May, 2011, we saw the impressive Navy Seals demonstrate the stealth capability of the US forces by the taking of the terrorism chief, Osama bin Laden. Nobody in the world can match the power or the technology of the US. Having great leadership to command this force is of the utmost importance.
One can conclude that if we were to fight a war and if we chose to fight to win, boldly, quickly and conclusively, there would be minimal US casualties, and the notch of victory could be hailed.
However, it seems that we are no longer in armed conflicts to win them but instead after decades with no declarations of war by Congress (required by the Constitution), we have been snookered into permitting them to continue unabated. Why not just win them and then they are done? In early 2011, for example, we became embroiled in Libya, with apparently no plan to win so this administration has not yet learned to handle the awesome responsibility of a mighty army.
Solving Jobs & Illegal Immigration Together!
Corporations that Cannot Outsource Find Another Way
What a shame for corporate titans who saw their golfing buddies moving huge portions of their businesses offshore to reduce their labor cost. They saw their best friends being able to move their businesses offshore to take advantage of lower wages and additionally, their buds also got "less punitive" environmental conditions. They hoped they could figure out a way that they could create a labor force that was similar to those offshore, but the required their company to stay in America. Despite all the odds of probability plus a negative factor known as the US Constitution, amazingly, they succeeded.
They wanted all of the advantages and none of the disadvantages of offshoring for their companies. They wanted a cheap labor source and a labor force that would not complain at all about the work environment. The overriding problem of course for US home (can't go noplace else) industries such as farming and meatpacking, and even construction was that companies that require "American" workers in America cannot offshore the work to other countries. What a problem! These businesses were stuck in America and therefore, they were forced by geography to hire American workers. Not so fast! How was that unfair to the entrepreneuers?
Not many of us talk about the devastation that taking jobs from America causes to American families. How unfair to American families?
Illegal Foreign Nationals
Illegal foreign nationals sometimes are called illegal aliens or undocumented workers. Nobody minimizes the bravery that they possess as they traverse sometimes multiple countries to cross the Rio Grande in the hope of gaining a better life. Those of you who come with good will, thank you. I wish you well in your lives to the extent that your presence in this country does not limit the lives of American Citizens.
Whether this is true or not, the popular notion about illegal aliens is that they come to America, have babies, live on welfare, and never go home. I don't know whether this is true or not. We do use the term "illegal aliens" to describe those who enter the US illegally. So most use that term to describe them as they are illegally in the country, and they are not citizens,. The fact is that they create a major drain on the middle class in the U.S. and there presence is devastating to those Americans looking for entry level and low-skilled jobs.
From what I have observed, the illegal alien has developed many job skills, especially in the construction trades. Home builders, plasterers, spackling experts etc. in certain parts of the US must be Spanish speaking or they cannot get a job. Most of those who cross the Rio Grande today are not looking to pick berries, though George Bush said a long time ago that they do what we do not want to do. That unfortunately is not true as they have moved on to better jobs and they absolutely do compete with citizens for those jobs.
Hello Fellow Pennsylvanians
Thank you for being here.
I am exploring a run for the Senate of the United States of America from the great State of Pennsylvania.
This site is continually being perfected so that it will be more meaningful to you as time passes.
I have built this site myself. I hope you like it.
One of the objectives in my campaign is to prove that a regular citizen can run for Congress or the Senate without going broke. When I ran for Congress in 2010, I spent $4500 of my own money and each penny helped more and more people know what I stand for and how together we can take back America for the people. I hope to do the same when I make my decision to run for the Senate.
So that nobody has a claim on me, just like when I took no money from anybody in the congressional election in 2010, should I choose to run for Senate, I will limit the amount of giving to $100.00 per person. $4500 was enough to get my message out in in District 11 of PA in which I gained 17% of the vote in the Primary. However, no amount of my own money will be enough for me to finance a statewide campaign and quite frankly, even if I knew what the amount were, I know I could not afford it.
Redistribution of Income -- On Its Way!
How about Lower Taxes and Repeal the 16th Amendment!
Americans and that includes me need protection from unfair and unreasonable taking of their wages and income through excessive taxation. This administration is waiting to get us so far along that we will not blame them when they open the taxation floodgates. If we take none of their gifts, they can never claim us as property.
My advice is to take no gifts even if at first a big government gift may appear to be desirable. Do not be tempted. Try to avoid Obamacare, and if you are tempted with something more obvious like an ObamaPear or even an ObamanApple, give them all the same short shrift.
Remember the serpent! Though the temptation may be great and the poke in the chest (like Eric Massa, former Congressman) may break the skin, hold on to your self respect, and we all can beat this guy. Obama is as tough as anybody the world has ever seen in waging his arguments. Passage of Obamacare was his penultimate victory. it was like adding a million new diehard batteries to his energy level. He is amazing and because of that, he is very dangerous to you and to America. He's a lot like the domineering lover that you could never shake. If you two are happily married now, my apologies.
Just try starting a small business in the US?
You will face a mountain of laws that say you are not worthy to be in business. That does not sound American to me. How about you? Those who have skipped the skip or danced the dance will tell you that you have to compromise your ideals to get what you want from the government. Is that true?
No matter how good your idea, it will be all but impossible to gain the capital necessary if you are a reasonably unknown entrepreneur. But, if you know somebody who knows somebody who knows a Congressman, they tell me your business can get a boost big enough to get it started. Red tape can be masked for the privileged and those "in the know."
Doesn't that make the fur on the back of you neck stand up straight?
Maybe you don't even need to have a product or service to be successful, but let's not talk about Northeastern PA folklore. You know that is not how it should work and when I am elected as your Senator, I promise to change this paradigm and if I cannot, please send me home on the first bus. OK! I won't give up so fast! But, I will feel like it! I will publish the names of all the people who want to make government corrupt. Then I will work to remove them from government.
Perpetrators of trouble are easily identified.
In other Jobs essays, we discussed the problems and we also discussed innovative solutions from cutting red tape to solutions for offshoring and illegal immigration and others. This essay is the bottom line on how to get the inertia rolling the other way. This is the road to recovery from this unprecedented recession.
We are clearly suffering under a mountain of debt and there are deficits scheduled from here to eternity. Each planned deficit will add substantially to the debt. A Congress controlled by my party has permitted the deficit to skyrocket to just about $1.5 trillion each year and the national debt has more than quadrupled to over $14 trillion. With these big numbers it is easy to get zero fatigue. Take a look at the chart in the above figure to get a picture at how the "me generation" has robbed all of the "you generations" in the future. The number of zeroes are enormous
There are only two groups in America it seems who do not know the basic way to get the United States out of a recession. The two groups are the Legislative Branch (Congress) and the Executive Branch (the President and the Czars and the Bureaucrats). I bet even the Supreme Court knows how but they have to be asked to render an opinion.
Will Kelly Run for Senate?
Contact: Brian Kelly
Date: Thursday, October 1, 2011
*** PRESS RELEASE ***
This release is prepared now anticipating Kelly may announce his candidacy sometime before October, 2011. This is not an announcement.
BRIAN KELLY ANNOUNCES HIS CANDIDACY FOR THE UNITED STATES SENATE
Says It Is Time To Return The Government To The People!
Brian Kelly, a former IBM Senior Systems Engineer and recently retired Assistant Professor of Business and Information Technology (BIT) at Marywood University in Scranton, announces his candidacy for the United States Senate in Pennsylvania. Kelly, of Wilkes-Barre, is seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge incumbent Democratic Senator Robert P. Casey, Jr. of Scranton.
Is three days really enough?
Government waste has gone far beyond outrageous and government corruption is a rotting, bloated stinking pig that has been poisoning us. Many of us were unaware it was even happening. We are now fully aware and It Must Stop!! The trillions of dollars that are being spent on bailouts opposed by the voters, and ahealthcare plan to make America a bankrupt nation have helped put our country in financial jeopardy.
And making matters worse, our lawmakers still do not give themselves enough time to even read the laws before they vote on them. Often they have not been printed and they are asked to read them. The bills do not exist yet they vote on them.
Obamacare Steals from Medicare
On Sunday, March 21, the U.S. House with full Democratic support and no Republicans, voted 219 to 211 to steal over a half a trillion dollars from Medicare -- roughly $600 Billion, but who's counting? I know some of you think the just got rid of Medicare Advantage to pay off AARP for some good moral support in getting Obamacare passed. That also is true but they did steal from the already weak trust fund to give Medicare benefits to thus who never paid into the Medicare system.
Considering that you and I pay a portion of all of our earnings to Medicare and it is taken out and accounted for separately on our pay stubs, the Federal Governmebt just stole $600 Billion from our retirement healthcare plan, and the media and AARP pretend that it is OK! It is not OK!
You know that the government makes everybody who works fork over a penny and a half of every dollar they earn into the Medicare “trust fund.” Actually, it amounts to three cents as the employer matches your contribution. Don't we all expect that to be there to pay for your healthcare at 65 years of age? Sorry, Obamacare just took a big wad of that right off the top to give to those who never paid in. And, nobody complained! Wow!
The case of the disrespectful Congress person.
In 2008, during the "infamous" Bush II Administration, some of you know I wrote a book called Taxation Without Representation: Can the US Avoid Another Boston Tea Party. You can bet if sales were through the roof, I would have a claim that I started the Tea Party Movement. Instead, I merely herald it as a gift from many to us all.
In 2010, I released an up-to-date version of the same book, but so much has happened since 2008, the book is 50% larger and unfortunately, it is 50% more in price . The premise of the book is that our representatives have stopped representing us and thus, we are in many ways where we were in 1776. Has anybody seen Ben Franklin lately? We need him back and then some.
There are some in Congress who are oblivious to the needs of US, and there are others who just have no time for US, because of the caring that they must do for themselves and their own good fortunes. Is Barbara Boxer one of those? How about Diane Feinstein or Nancy Pelosi?
Jobs Killers Hurt America and Americans
Outsourcing has been with the world for thousands of years. The sale of food, tools, and other goods from one community to another is a form of outsourcing. If you don't grow your own food then you outsource its acquisition. Outsourcing is a necessary facet of every business and it is practiced by every company because nobody can do it all. Offshore Outsourcing as practiced by American corporations, or as it is simply called, Offshoring is simply anti-American. It happens when the business believes it is so important that the workers and the country in which it is franchised, no longer matter.
There were US companies in the 1800s and 1900s who were vertically integrated and thus, they did it all. There was little outsourcing in these companies. Rugged individualism was the credo of the day, and if you could not do it all, you could not compete. These companies took care of their own production, mining, manufacturing from raw materials, building finished goods, shipping the goods, and they sold the end products in their own stores. Many of these companies even went so far as insuring themselves; handled their own bookkeeping and taxes; had their own lawyers etc. Some even designed and built their own buildings as it was viewed as the proper way to expand their enterprises. To do that, they required a major diversity of talent.
Obamacare Is Full Government Control!
Your government, also known as the politicians that you elected to represent YOU, have been hiring a ton of bureaucrats to take over control of YOUR healthcare. They began the hiring process with the stimulus bill way back in 2009, and so far, they have several hundred thousand people in just about a year and a half, and they are expected to hire as many as 600,000 by 2013. Anticipating the passage of Obamacare and not wanting to overburden that budget, they were able to "pre-hire" people using the stimulus bill so that Obamacare could hit the ground running.
These people are being hired to take control of all parts of YOUR life -- not just health and education. They will tell you how much salt you can use, how much soda or beer you can you can consume, and, believe it or not, how much toilet paper you can use without destroying the eco-system! Is this representation that you want to live with? I certainly don't! BTW, it has been reported that Cheryl (one slip per trip) Crowe will be in charge of toilet tissue rationing.
The issue in Healthcare is not healthcare and it is not the uninsured's. The have health care. They just have to go to the ER. The issue is that the government wants to control the health industry and the bill they passed on March 21, 2010 gives them that control. It is not about healthcare at all. It is about government control. That's why citizens are up in arms. Congress in the Health Care bill wants to be able to dole out jobs and create more dependencies and entitlements.
A Tough Pill To Swallow
Do we all need health care? You bet we do. But even before the big March 21, 2010 Pelosi / Reid / Obama takeover, the citizens of the US already had health care. In fact, our illegal alien friends also have health care. It's been the federal law since 1986.
Can you think of the expense that would be saved if the freeloaders and deadbeats from other countries were not chewing so much out of our system. Maybe we could actually afford more than just emergency room care for American citizens. By the way, I am for care for the helpless but that is where it ends. I am not for Government being the only health broker in the country because that is where individual freedom ends. Government should never make somebody helpless.
In mid March 2010 before the March 21 bill passed the house, I had been reading about the supposed myths of Obamacare. In a New York Times article by Paul Krugman, he cites what he thinks are the three myths of Obamacare. From reading Paul Krugman one could get the idea that he does not read newspapers because he is too busy writing his opinion. He happens to like anything the President, the Pelosi and the Reid have to say. That is no myth for sure. His writings are pure Obama propaganda.
Why were they so anxious?
As you know by pouring through this Web site, I am a conservative Democrat. Therefore, giving the government control of healthcare or any other important aspect of my life does not fit in with my way of thinking. Healthcare is not for the government. It is for doctors and patients only. Government simply does not belong. Government under progressives wants to pretend it is the new, modern god, and so the goodness of the American people and our religious inclinations, and our churches, and our charities are no longer necessary. Charity and helpfulness to our brothers and sisters is not for government. Again, Government simply does not belong. Charity is for the goodness of people, both organized and unorganized to come forth and help the helpless.
So, even though I am a Democrat and even though you may be a Democrat, that does not mean that you or I should have had to give up your freedom to feed huge political egos and give control of our lives in any way to the government. The people run the government and not vice versa. Giving up freedom to government is the antithesis of America and quite frankly, it is why, in addition to separation of powers, the Founders created the Constitution so that we never forget that government is subservient to the people.
Wealth redistribution, Income redistribution, and now, with Obamacare, healthcare redistribution are anathema to the American way. American is a charitable country indeed, and that is why we do not need and do not want the government directing our charitable efforts. That also does not mean that a better healthcare plan cannot be passed in the 112th or 113th Congress. It is my goal to remove the monstrosity of Obamacare from the backs of hard working Americans and fix the problems in the system without giving the federal government any control over our lives. That is my goal.
The following is from the Center for Individual Freedom:
Not long ago, I found myself updating another of my books, Taxation Without Representation, originally penned in 2008 about then current domestic, political, and constitutional issues intertwining the public consciousness. Immersed once again in that vortex of all-too-familiar concerns about our government, I felt compelled to add a few paragraphs about the Obama Presidency in light of the transparent failures of the newly coronated Administration.
I wrote at length about more areas than I expected and before I realized it, the update extended beyond what I would consider a standard update. I knew then that by virtue of its length and current relevance, this work was not a chapter, it actually constituted a new stand-alone book. I am glad that you have selected this book to join me on this journey to preserve American freedom.
In the eyes of Americans across the country, from the blue of the mid-Atlantic to the red of the heartland, Barack Obama is failing. Each passing day erodes his declining and oh-so-determinative poll numbers. Said most simply, the man just doesn’t get it. He likely never will. Barack Obama does not harbor a thought process anything remotely congruent with the collective onsciousness of those he represents, his constituents: US. More and more people recognize his continual diatribes as those of an automaton, glued to technology for his next thought

Bringing Good Jobs Back to America!
As noted in the Essay on this site titled. "Where Have All the Good Jobs Gone?," unemployment in the US for the past two years has been at record levels. Even the apparent boost in employment as reported by the government to aid in Obama's reelection campaign is suspect, because when an American hists the upper limit of time collecting unemployment, they are no longer counted. Though government may not lie, and that is debatable, they always spin the truth in their favor. The financial collapse we have been suffering created a lull in buyer confidence and of course that resulted in significantly less sales for all companies. When sales stop, so does hiring.All the tax increases and stimulus plans in the world will not help employment once sales stop.
If buffoons or perhaps my favorite non-action figures, 435 blocks of granite had taken over Congress in 2009, they would have already done better. If there were a right way and a wrong way to get something done, Congress in all circumstances went the wrong way despite cautions over and over from worried constituents.
When the people said, "no bailouts," Congress responded with TARP and the bailouts. When the people said "no" to the pork and the opportunities for Congress to buy votes for their 2010 and 2012 elections, at a cost over $825 Billion, Congress responded with the stimulus bill. While it was being debated, this bill was rightfully renamed by Republicans as the Porkulus bill. It is a national shame. It was supposed to be a jobs bill. If it created another job, that new job would be lonesome. Overall, every borrowed dime Obama spent on his stimulus games, contributed in the negative towards the economy as businesses were crying out, "just let us alone."
Americans, hoping to earn a decent living somehow do not qualify!
Irish Need not Apply! Syrians need not apply! Italians need not apply! Spanish need not apply! Polish need not apply! How many of our parents went through tough times in the USA finding bigotry instead of work when they sought employment? You've heard the stories at the dinner table. Eventually our parents all got jobs and America toned down its ethnic prejudices. Today, however, all American citizens are feeling a new kind of prejudice in the workplace. It's an economic prejudice carried out by greedy businesses. It cries out Americans Need Not Apply! You're wasting your time.
Please note, just like it was not the Irish, the Syrians, the Italians, the Spanish or the Polish who were the problem in our country's infancy, the Mexicans, the Costa Ricans, or the Guatamalans are not the problem today. It is greedy businesses and a greedy policial class and in this book, we will show you how and why.
Brian W. Kelly is one of America's most outspoken and eloquent conservative protagonists. He is the author of Taxation Without Representation, Obama's Seven Deadly Sins, Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!, and many other books. Like many Americans, Brian is fed up with a progressive liberal agenda in Washington that places the needs of illegal foreign workers in front of the needs of Americans. Endorsed by the Independence Hall Tea Party in 2010, Kelly ran for Congress against a 13-term Democrat and, in a three way race he spent just $4500 of his own money and, as a virtual unknown, he captured 17% of the vote. Kelly then supported Republican challenger Lou Barletta, aconservative leader on immigration policy, and helped him win a resounding victory in the general election.
Jobs Make Us All Feel More Important!
Hopefully Brian Kelly will become our next Senator and we will not have to fear anymore. I know that he knows how to bring Jobs back to PA and the Country at large. He is one of us. Why not give him the chance to help the people -- US!
On April 19, 2010 Brian sent a manuscript of a new book to his publisher. The title is
Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! . The subtitle is Where Did They Go? How Can We Get Them Back?
On May 4, 2010, the soft cover paperback of the book became available for sale at www.itjungle.com/store.html. If you would like to read this compendium of essays about the Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! problem in the US and NEPA, and you would prefer not having to buy the book, you can almost do that right on this site. Kelly has packaged a deal for you that you won't believe. You can read the book for free. However, the essays have been updated since the book, so you will have to endure more current information than what was printed. My wife said to say, though true, that was a joke.
Preface to the Preface:
This is both an essay and a Preface. All of the essays in this Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! menu have already been packaged into a book titled Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! When you create a book, it needs introductory material. Much of this is packaged in a front matter item called the "preface." Front matter comes before all of the other material in the book. Typically nobody wants to pay for Front Matter. When they buy a book, they are mostly interested in just the chapter or essay contents.
Anyway, this is no ordinary Preface. As you may know, the whole book titled Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! is free in this section of the site (you just do not get the paper) so without having the preface that I wrote for the book, it would really be incomplete.
This Preface does not have the normal marketing material that is put in to sell a book. Instead, this Preface sets the stage for the need for the book by telling the reader (you and I) through a lot more than anecdotal evidence that they better watch out and they better not pout and they better not cry and in the preface I start telling you why. If we don't watch him, the President, disguised as Santa Claus will carry off all our jobs in his bag and give them to somebody he knows. And none of us will get to town again.
All of us have a number of heroes. Brian Kelly's political hero is Alan Keyes, who happens to have been a Republican most, if not all, of his political life. Alan Keyes is a good man, so he is also a hero simply on the human-being front. For decades, he’s been the champion of the unalienable right to life of the innocent unborn and a tireless campaigner against the purveyors of the culture of death.
Keyes made a run for the State Senate against Barack Obama. He lost because he told the truth. He was also a candidate of the American Independent Party in the 2008 Presidential election, but he was not given air time by the media in any of the debates. Alan Keyes is as good as it gets and America would do well with Alan Keyes at the helm.
Some of the folks in NEPA may remember in the Congressional campaign of 2010, Brian Kelly came up with an easy solution to the squabbles that Paul Kanjorski and Corey O'Brien were having over campaign financing. The two were fighting about who was the better fundraiser, and which of these two long-term politicians was the most ethical in squeezing those dependent on them for a livelihood?
The incumbent and the other challenger are shown below:
In the Primary for the 111th Congressional district, Brian Kelly won the lottery for the # 1 name on the ballot and the # 2 man was Corey O'Brien, a Lackawanna County Commissioner, who ran for Commissioner again in 2011, followed by Paul Kanjorski. Since Kelly took no contributions and spent just $4500 of his own money on his campaign, he felt that the field would be almost level if these two politicos decided that they should give the money back.
Judge Napolitano for President!
Oh, but for brave and articulate men and women, we would all be slaves. One of my favorite spokespersons for Freedom in America is Judge Andrew Napolitano. He is one of the few people who can really fill-in for Glenn Beck and help get that fire going in your gut.
It is our Congress that has given so much power to Unions, to Corporations, and to themselves. About the latter, they don't mind one bit. If you don't like me or you don't think I have earned the right to represent you because I have never been a politician, please do yourself one favor. Vote out Bob Casey and any Nancy Pelosi / Harry Reid loving Congressman or Senator who has stained the halls of Congress with their deceit and their disregard for the Constitution and the will of their own constituents.
Vote me out also but give me just one term before you do so. That is OK. I won't mind, but make sure you include everybody in your bum's list who now is in the process of taking away so many freedoms that we may never be able to get them all back.
Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! The Government's Plan?
Hello Everybody. My name is Brian Kelly and I am running for the US Senate. Some may call me a mild mannered professor at a fine Northeastern PA University. But, regardless of what I am called, the message in this essay is Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! And, by the way, like a lot of Americans trying to cling on to a job, I have been dumped after seven years working for the same University. The irony is that I retired three years ago, and they begged me to come back. At 63.5 years old, I thought I was going to end my career at Marywood but things happen. Don't worry, I'll be fine. After about ten years, they had their reasons. I hope to spend the next six years in the US Senate working for the people.
I am 63.5 years old and I am able to collect social security now but I am not ready to retire. I had been hoping to put in about two more good years of work, maybe four. Now, I am thinking about one thing: beginning my new six-year Job on January 3, 2013. There are two things that might mess that up. You may not hear my message, which would make it tough for me to become your next Senator, or Congress may pick a different start date. If the folks decide to send me to Congress for six years to serve in the Senate, I can promise two things for sure. Nobody will own me and I will work for you -- the people of Pennsylvania.
So, why can't I know when I can start working for the people of PA?
Question: Are You a Democrat in Name Only (DINO)?
Answer: That is a great question. I may not know the answer to that question but I will tell you how I feel.
A long time ago, when I was a kid, I believed the Democrat party was the party of the people. Though I started out as an Independent, I became a Democrat in my early twenties because of the principles of the Democrat Party. My father believed in those principles and he taught me them at the time from his perspective.
Democrats represented the ordinary people and the Republicans represented business. The people needed good representation from the Democratic Party because business already had the Republicans.
It was that simple until the notions of conservative, liberal, and socialist /Marxist / progressive entered the picture. I am not liberal. I am not socialist. I am conservative. I guess we would have to ask the party leaders if there is room for good ole conservative thinking Democrats in the Party today.
Should your neighbor pay for your healthcare?
Healthcare must be a right, and not a privilege in a free scoiety! How can it not be? Why should some have healthcare and others not have healthcare? What should somebody have a car and somebody else not have a car? Why should somebody be handsome and somebody else have to sneak up on a glass of water?
Current thinking suggests that it is far better for everybody to have 1/4 strength healhcare than for 1/4 of the population to be forced to get their care from clinics and ER programs. The latter in the US is called no healthcare. The latter in East Inkastinkastan is "thank God the Lord heard our prayers."
Are these issues not at the center of the debate about who gets the bounty produced by the working people of America? In days gone by there would have been no dispute. The employees who earned the paycheck would get to spend their own paycheck. For lack of better terms, it was their own bounty. In days gone by, if you earned it, you kept it.
Today, the government wants those who work to give their healthcare benefit to somebody else who is nondescript but needy. The person is most probably not not among the working class. Keeping your own family's healthcare has ecome a political issue. Why would you not want to give up your healthcare so somebody else, not as well-off as you can have what you have had all your life? Isn't about time you learned how important it is to share the pain?
Question: Is Bob Casey a Good Senator for Pennsylvania?
Answer: Until about 2008, it did not matter that much to me and perhaps many others whether the son of one of the finest Governors of Pennsylvania was a good Senator or a even a good man. Life was easy in the US and nobody in PA was giving Bob Casey Jr. a reason to show why he was the best or the worst for the state.
Then, as Barack Obama entered the national stage, Casey began to carry the water full time for candidate Barack Hussein Obama. Many of us could not figure why as Hillary Clinton appeared the best candidate for Democrats and she was from Scranton, Casey's home town. It no longer mattered what people in Pennsylvania thought. Casey chose to be out of synch with those in his home town of Scranton and the rest of NEPA.
My own opinion is that Bob Casey Jr.'s recent interests are someplace other than Pennsylvania. I had the same quandry running against Paul Kanjorski. Northeastern PA.
Americans for Tax Reform suggested to Rep. Kanjorski days before the bill came up in the house that it would cost Pennsylvanians $636.7 Billion if Cap-and-Trade were passed. They urged the Congressman, who represented five counties in our state, many in which coal and gas (both carbon fuels) are "mined," and certainly many areas of the state use coal to fire their electric plants. The cost to Pennsylvanians ws estimated as a huge number that we would be paying through higher taxes and forever higher energy costs. Why would Congressman Kanjorski vote in such a way as to hurt Pennsylvanians? Who knows why he did what he did? Lou Barletta creamed him in the general election of 2010 and he was sent packing.
