Finland Elects First Conservative President In Five Decades

President elect Sauli Niinisto will be the first president from the conservative National Coalition Party since 1956, and the first in 30 years from a party other than the center-left Social Democrats.

The 63-year-old took 63 percent of the votes, compared to 37 percent for his rival, Greens candidate Pekka Haavisto, official results showed with 100 percent of ballots counted.

Jim Moran, Race Baiter And Bigot

Virginia Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) dismissed Congressman Allen West’s (R-FL) criticism of the President. He said Allen West, a black man, was “not representative of the African-American community.” To Moran, West is a runaway from the Democrat plantation.

Here’s what West said . . .

Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneur will and spirit of the American people, somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America. {emphasis added}

It isn’t hard for Conservatives, or even Republicans, to understand that it was the message, not the messenger (Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Wasserman-Shultz), that West was talking about. But it was enough for Moran to play the race card to shoot the messenger, West, with his bigoted comment.

Apparently, Moran must believe that blacks are supposed to like Obama’s near double-digit unemployment (13.6% for blacks, over 50% for young blacks in Washington, D.C.),  record food stamp enrollment, re-inflation of the housing and higher-education bubbles, and massive redistribution of wealth from the working class to the Wall Street bundler class.

Michelle Malkin summed it up nicely. . . .

Congressman Jim Moran is an old white Democrat from Virginia who thinks he can judge whether we minority conservatives are acting sufficiently non-white enough. Moran’s an inveterate bully, a brawler, a crook and a bigot. And not one of his civility-preaching liberal colleagues has the courage to call him out.

Federal Budget For Dummies

Does the size of the numbers of our budget deficit and national debt make your head spin? You’re not alone.

To understand why Standard and Poor’s downgraded the United States’ credit rating, all you need to do is look at this analysis done by The Gainesville Tea Party.

Even liberals should be able to figure this one out. Especially the last line that shows how serious Washington is about restoring fiscal sanity and our economic health.

Keep in mind also that this analysis does not include the, absent any reforms, forty-three trillion dollars in unfunded and mandated obligations of Medicare and Social Security.

Why S&P Downgraded the US:

U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000

Federal budget: $3,820,000,000,000

New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000

National debt: $14,271,000,000,000

Recent budget cut: $ 38,500,000,000

Let’s remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:

Annual family income: $21,700

Money the family spent: $38,200

New debt on the credit card: $16,500

Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710

Total budget cuts: $385

$385  of a cut is not serious. It’s laughable. Because this administration does not ever intend to reach a balanced budget.

Add to this example the annual deficits of the Obama Administration, $5 trillion. Add to that the $43 trillion in the unfunded obligations of Medicare and Social Security and the reality of all the debt we are facing as a country looks like this.

Outstanding balance on the credit card: $190,710

Total budget cuts: $385
