Divorce Agreement: It’s Time for the Two America’s to Divorce

Posted on February 28, 2009. Filed under: Conservatives, General, Politics, Socialism/Communism |

A friend sent this to me and I LOVE it!! Sad to say, but maybe it IS time for this. The liberal America is killing us so the Conservative America would probably be better off if we just split the country and go our separate ways!!

Divorce agreement: It’s  Time for the Two America’s to Divorce

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists,Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck togethersince the
late 1950’s, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let’s just end it on friendly terms.We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own ways.

Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes. We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war,we’ll takeour firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. You can keep
Oprah,Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of
them).

We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies,Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless,
homeboys, hippies and illegal aliens. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks. We’ll keep the Bibles and give youNBC and Hollywood.

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the
peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault,we’ll help provide them security.

We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam,Scientology, Humanism, Secularism and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U. N..but we will no longer be paying the bill.

We’ll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

You can have the bureaucrat tell you which doctors you can consult; we will decide for ourselves.

We’ll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute Imagine, I’d Like to Teach the
World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our
history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you ANWAR which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Sincerely,

John J. Wall Law Student and an American

P. S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda with you.

Every American Will Pay the Price of Gross Ignorance: Obama Supporters Will Get ‘Chains’ instead of ‘Change’

This is an incredible article. He is soooooo right!!!!!

Every American will Pay The Price of Gross Ignorance

by JB Williams

In 2008, Americans foolishly used their freedom to vote for “chains” not “change.”

Life, property, speech and guns, are at the foundation of American freedom and the corrupt Chicago cabal now in charge, is aggressively coming after all of them.

Obama’s “economic bailout” is a global socialist buyout of the U.S. free market system. ALL private property is under siege, as advised by George Soros.

Former Clinton Chief of Staff become George Soros stooge and Barack Obama advisor John Podesta leads the charge against free speech with his version of the “Fairness Doctrine” aimed at silencing the voice of dissent at talk radio.

Obama Gun Rights advisors John Podesta and Rebecca Peters, responsible for UK and Australian gun ban laws, are leading the charge against the U.S. Second Amendment, also funded by George Soros.

And of course, the right to life itself, both inside and outside of the womb, has been a successful target of the left for more than 40 years now.

Most Americans already oppose almost every early step of the Obamessiah administration. The Democrat congress continues to enjoy the lowest public opinion rating in U.S. history. Yet Americans have no clue where their power is, how to use it, or when to say enough is enough.

Our nation’s Founders knew that this day would come. “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” – Declaration of Independence

The natural tendency of a peaceful prosperous society is to quietly tolerate repeated affronts to their collective well-being, so long as the personal pain is tolerable. So long as life remains personally tolerable, the people will resist any urge to draw a line in the sand and take an individual stand against tyranny. They will suffer incremental losses, until the accumulative pain becomes personal and intolerable… and then, all of a sudden… they will awake!

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

You can’t fight city hall! Politicians are scum, but what can we do? My vote doesn’t count. Washington DC is not listening to the people. The people have no power. I don’t support what they are doing, but I dare not withhold my taxes, for fear of imprisonment. Our hands are tied…

No, our hands are not tied, yet. But they will be tied soon, if we continue to tolerate that which should never be tolerated in this country. Americans MUST get the horse ahead of the cart. They must “change” themselves, before they can change anything else. And they must begin at square one!

Square One

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – Declaration of Independence

More than 40 million innocent American children have been denied their fundamental American right to life. And even though most Americans oppose abortion on demand, they sit silent, tolerating that which they childishly thought, would never affect them personally…

Yet, if your society will not respect and defend an unalienable right to life, then you have no rights at all, beyond those temporarily afforded by your rulers, used only as a disposable tool of political gain.

I don’t care what your politics are or what excuses you have adopted to justify the brutal taking of innocent life in the past. A society with NO regard for innocent human life cannot be trusted with anything else.

We can know the enemies of freedom by this single subject alone. We need look no further. We must know the enemies of freedom by this subject alone, because a complete disregard for innocent human life is at the foundation of their contempt for all other human rights, including freedom itself.

There is NO escaping this reality. This is not a litmus test. It is a non-negotiable reality and NO excuses will do. Fail to defend innocent life and you have already failed to defend individual freedom, period!

Where the right to life itself is not protected, no other rights are safe. That’s why our Founders listed LIFE as the first protected unalienable right, endowed by our Creator. Whether Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Independent, fail this fundamental test of freedom, and you can pass no other.

One Step at a Time

America reached the brink of total collapse one step at a time, over a long train of abuses and usurpations. It can only step back from the brink of extinction the same way, one step at a time.

Before Americans can save their nation, they must first save themselves. People unable to save themselves are able to save no one else. People unable to discern right from wrong in their own lives, can never choose right over wrong for their nation.

“Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government.” – Jefferson

Despite living in the so-called information age, Americans are horrifically ill-informed today. As a result, they are wholly unsuited for self-governance. This is why they look for a political messiah when they no longer entrust themselves with individual choices. But there is no such thing as a political messiah. Only false political prophets…

In fact, a political messiah represents the greatest threat to freedom. No man should be trusted with governance over your life. But in the absence of well grounded self-governance, many have entrusted their lives and personal well-being to the designs of others.

In a Rasmussen report released a day or so ago, 67% respondents said they trust themselves more than government, to right current economic woes. So, why did they elect a regime that is overtly running roughshod over the vast majority of Americans who oppose everything they are doing?

It’s because no matter how little trust they have for Washington DC elitists who have repeatedly demonstrated utter contempt towards every American, they actually trust themselves even less…

This too must change, now!

One Issue at a Time

If 67% of Americans truly do trust themselves more than Washington DC with their personal economic condition, they should not have allowed absolute Marxists to take unbridled control of the federal government and they had better do something to stop the current rush into socialism fast.

More than 70% of Americans polled now say that they oppose Obama’s effort to stimulate the Democrat Party through a 40 year wish list of socialist voter bribes. But what are they doing to stop it from becoming the law of the land?

97% of Americans say that they believe the Second Amendment protects their individual right to keep and bear arms. Yet they will sit silent, as Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Podesta and Peters systematically take that right away.

More than 70% of Americans oppose abortion on demand, yet abortion on demand is the law of their land. How?

Americans have sat on their hands and wallets through more than 70 years of irresponsible deficit spending in Washington DC and now they wonder how the most productive and prosperous nation on earth reached the brink of bankruptcy… That’s not all.

To make matters worse, they have now hired the very people responsible for our current economic calamity to fix it, and instead of stopping the digging that put America in this hole to start with; they have traded their shovel for a backhoe and are digging the hole deeper at break-neck speed.

If Obama and Co. have a successful first month in power, they will increase the national debt from $10 trillion to $15 trillion before the average American will even get a glimpse of the bill they are about to pass, with only Democrat support in congress. This won’t bail America out of anything. It will toss it off of the cliff…

At what point will the American people awaken from their apathy and ignorance?

Out in the Open

This is no longer a covert operation or some crackpot conspiracy theory. You can follow the links provided and read the public documents and reports that openly confirm exactly what these anti-American thugs have in mind for the future of our country.

Most of them have worked together via a web of well funded 527 type policy think tank front groups that individually, operate below the radar of the average American. Many well-intentioned American citizens have poured money into these groups, believing that they were supporting something quite different, something quite patriotic and American.

But in what America should the voice of dissent be silenced under some insane “Fairness Doctrine” – ruled “unconstitutional” years ago? In what America should the federal government have the right to strip innocent citizens of their Second Amendment rights? In what America should the federal government be allowed to grab private property against the will of more than 70% of the people, no matter how they describe “a greater common good?”

And what American in his or her right mind would call any of these initiatives “American?”

Every American will Pay

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” – Jefferson

Well, the American people have long since failed to stop their government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. The current leftist “stimulus package” will only stimulate deficit spending, government growth and federal power under the most anti-American regime to ever hold power in the United States.

No matter your political affiliations or ideological beliefs, every American will pay a heavy price for the collective ignorance and apathy that allows the most corrupt government in American history to strip away every last freedom in the name of some greater communal good…

The price will be like no other ever experienced in this country. The average American can’t even begin to imagine what their future holds under the Chicago cabal.

By the time they figure it all out and react, it will be too late.

Your Power and How to Use It

You thought your power was your vote, until your vote repeatedly failed to save you from the anti-American juggernaut in DC.

In truth, your vote is only part of your power. As you have seen demonstrated over and over again in Washington DC, if you follow the money, you will find the power.

Barack Obama ran a two year presidential campaign that cost an astounding $740 million dollars, over $200 million of which was donated by unnamed overseas donors, not American citizens. Without this money, he would not be president today.

Your money is your power, in more ways then one.

There is a reason why anti-American billionaires like George Soros pour millions into 527 front groups that work around the clock to rob the American citizens of their Constitutional rights. The reason is – it works.

People who hope to save this country will have to dig deep into their own pockets to fund a counter-offensive, or they will continue to lose battle after battle. Abortion on demand is the law of the land because the pro-abortion fund is five times that of the pro-life fund.

Further, socialism requires funding via taxation without representation. So what, that you oppose everything Obama is doing, if you continue to fund it with your tax dollars just the same as if you fully agreed?

If you want to get Washington DC’s attention for real, you must stop the flow of tax dollars that they must have to fund their agenda.

I know, alone, you will go to jail for doing so. But if 10 million taxpayers unite and refuse to pay, nobody will go to jail and the message will be louder than 100 million votes. Alone, you are weak and vulnerable. Nobody knows this better than the left, which always moves as a unit. You can no longer work alone to save your country…

Why Americans are Losing Their Country

In short, evil prevails wherever good people do nothing to stop it. Americans have tolerated far too much for far too long and now, they have very limited opportunity to reverse the trends.

As is usually the case, by the time a people know that they must revolt and muster the intestinal fortitude to do so, they are nearly out of the power.

Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 – December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

In a 1944 presidential campaign speech, Norman Thomas said – “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”

Today, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA’s members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics. [4]

The Democratic Socialists of America is the spin-off organization that works within the system. The old Socialist Party of America failed to succeed in working outside of the U.S. political system. So members left and started DSA-USA, to work within one of the two major political parties. The one owned by the proletariat labor movement was the natural choice.

The legislative arm of DSA is the Congressional Progressive Caucus in Washington DC, founded in 1991 by the only open member of the Socialist Party currently serving in congress, Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

But its membership rolls boasts some of Washington’s best known Democrat leaders today.

The Bottom Line

Sooner or later, the American people will wake up. The longer it takes for them to awaken, the fewer options they will have and the more violent their reaction will be.

50% of Americans have not voted in years. The other 50% have not focused on the fundamentals in their voting, divided by a constant drumbeat of socio-economic and racially charged class warfare. So, Americans failed to use the power of their vote to stem the tide of anti-Americanism now in full control of Washington DC. Their vote is useless now…

They are currently failing to use the power of their money as well. Soon, they won’t have any money.

When their votes no longer count and they are out of money, only their guns can release them from their chains. If they take your guns before they get all of your money and property, that won’t be an option either.

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed…” – Noah Webster, Philadelphia 1787

It is my hope that Americans will wake up and use the power of their tax dollars to end the current rush to finish America off. However, I see no signs that the American people are awake and ready to fight yet.

They are very likely to wait until their guns are the only means left to defend their country, under full scale attack from within the halls of their federal government today.

As a result, every American will pay a heavy price for the apathy and ignorance that led them to this day. They will once again pay for their freedom with their blood…

Today, most will turn and look away before they can even finish reading this column, and stick their heads back in the sand even though all the proof they need is right before their eyes. The truth is indeed stranger than fiction or even the wildest conspiracy theory today.

But tomorrow they will weep for what they have allowed to happen to the greatest nation ever known to mankind.

As Thomas Jefferson stated not so long ago, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

Mileage Tax Coming: Big Brother Will Know Exactly Where You’re Going

Posted on February 22, 2009. Filed under: Nanny State, Obama, Politics, Socialism/Communism |

Come on people!! Are we really gonna let  Big Brother now monitor where we go and how many miles we travel??? This is ridiculous!

Obama hasn’t been President for long, but all of the big brother statists are coming out of the woodwork like maggots on meth in their mad search for new ways to take your freedom, your free choice, your privacy and, most importantly, your money.

Fox news reports that a number of states are now considering a plan to tax the miles that you drive. This would, of course, require a monitoring device be forced down your throat and into your car to tell the government where you are at all times and how many trips you take and how long they are. They claim that this will be used instead of a gas tax, but is anyone really foolish enough to believe that?

Oregon Exploring Mileage Tax Instead of Gasoline
Saturday, January 03, 2009 | FoxNews.com

PORTLAND, Ore. – Oregon is among a growing number of states exploring ways to tax drivers based on the number of miles they drive instead of how much gas they use, even going so far as to install GPS monitoring devices in 300 vehicles. The idea first emerged nearly 10 years ago as Oregon lawmakers worried that fuel-efficient cars such as gas-electric hybrids could pose a threat to road upkeep, which is paid for largely with gasoline taxes.

“I’m glad we’re taking a look at it before the potholes get so big that we can’t even get out of them,” said Leroy Younglove, a Portland driver who participated in a recent pilot program.

The proposal is not without critics, including drivers who are concerned about privacy and others who fear the tax could eliminate the financial incentive for buying efficient vehicles.

But Oregon is ahead of the nation in exploring the concept, even though it will probably be years before any mileage tax is adopted.
Congress is talking about it, too. A congressional commission has envisioned a system similar to the prototype Oregon tested in 2006-2007.
The National Commission on Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing is considering calling for higher gas taxes to keep highways, bridges and transit programs in good shape.

But over the long term, commission members say, the nation should consider taxing mileage rather than gasoline as drivers use more fuel-efficient and electric vehicles.

As cars burn less fuel, “the gas tax isn’t going to fill the bill,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

The next Congress “could begin to set the stage, perhaps looking at some much more robust pilot programs, to begin the research, to work with manufacturers.”

Gov. Ted Kulongoski has included development money for the tax in his budget proposal, and interest is growing in a number of other states.
Governors in Idaho and Rhode Island have considered systems that would require drivers to report their mileage when they register vehicles.
In North Carolina last month, a panel suggested charging motorists a quarter-cent for every mile as a substitute for the gas tax.

James Whitty, the Oregon Department of Transportation employee in charge of the state’s effort, said he’s also heard talk of mileage tax proposals in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Colorado and Minnesota.

“There is kind of a coalition that’s naturally forming around this,” he said.
Also fueling the search for alternatives is the political difficulty of raising gasoline taxes.

The federal gas tax has not been raised since 1993, and nearly two dozen states have not changed their taxes since 1997, according to the American Road & Transportation Builders Association.

In Oregon’s pilot program, officials equipped 300 vehicles with GPS transponders that worked wirelessly with service station pumps, allowing drivers to pay their mileage tax just as they do their gas tax.

Whitty said the test, which involved two gas stations in the Portland area, proved the idea could work.

Though the GPS devices did not track the cars’ locations in great detail, they could determine when a driver had left certain zones, such as the state of Oregon. They also kept track of the time the driving was done, so a premium could be charged for rush-hour mileage.

The proposal envisions a gradual change, with manufacturers installing the technology in new vehicles because retrofitting old cars would be too expensive. Owners of older vehicles would continue to pay gasoline taxes.

The difference in tax based on mileage or on gasoline would be small – “pennies per transaction at the pump,” Whitty said.
But the mileage tax still faces several major obstacles.

For one, Oregon accounts for only a small part of auto sales, so the state can’t go it alone. A multistate or national system would be needed.
Another concern is that such devices could threaten privacy. Whitty said he and his task force have assured people that the program does not track detailed movement and that driving history is not stored and cannot be accessed by law enforcement agencies.

“I think most people will come to realize there is really no tracking issue and will continue to buy new cars,” Whitty said, noting that many cell phones now come equipped with GPS, which has not deterred customers.

Others are worried that a mileage tax would undermine years of incentives to switch toward more fuel-efficient vehicles.

“It doesn’t seem fair,” said Paul Niedergang of Portland, that a hybrid would be taxed as much as his Dodge pickup. “I just think the gas tax needs to be updated.”

Lynda Williams, also of Portland, was not immediately sold on the idea but said it was worth consideration.

“We all have to be open-minded,” she said. “Our current system just isn’t working.”

Something Wicked This Way Comes: Obama is Bad for America!

Posted on February 22, 2009. Filed under: 2nd Amendment Rights, Illegal Immigration, Liberal Idiots, Nanny State, Obama, Politicians, Politics, Religion, Socialism/Communism, Terrorism |

Even this Canadian can see the US is headed down the wrong road. So why can’t Americans see that????

Something Wicked This Way Comes

By Roger King Tuesday, February 17, 2009
Canada Free Press

[Excerpted]

Barack Obama has been in power for about a month but his promise of “change” appears to be more than just a liberal agenda. Not only is it becoming apparent that the economic crisis is being used to push a socialist agenda that would make Saul Alinsky proud, but there are some very disturbing signs how the Democratic plan to win subsequent elections.

Bailout Bill

Obama campaigned on a message of “hope over fear” but his current rhetoric talks about a crisis of catastrophic scope if the bailout bill isn’t passed immediately. What makes this suspicious is the fact CBO states most of the bill will only take effect at the end of 2010 and will actually hurt our gross national product over the following 10 years. It is apparent president Obama used this bill to accomplish things that would have been much harder to pass on their own merit.

# Religious discrimination: Buried in the bill is a section that bans religious activities in many public education buildings. Further, there are upgrades to the national school systems but they are prohibited where religious activities may occur. Democrats voted 43-54 against an amendment to strike from the economic stimulus bill language that discriminates against people of faith.

# Universal Health Care: The outline for Universal Health care will be put in place through this bill. In mandating a computer system for all medical records, every person will be mandated to have their records recorded in Federal Database.
A National Coordinator of Health Information Technology is going to be created to monitor this system. This outline will likely be used to track treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective. Hospitals and doctors that are not “meaningful users” of the new system will face penalties.

# ACORN: Potentially up to $4 billion for radical groups like ACORN will be dispersed. ACORN is a radical socialist group, that helped the housing bust by pushing banks into making bad loans, and is accused of voter fraud in over 6 states. This group openly supports the Democrats and their tactics were learned through Saul Alinsky teachings. Obama even taught these classes to ACORN in his Chicago days.

# Open Ended Welfare Returns: The bill sets in motion another $523 billion in new welfare spending that is hidden by budgetary gimmicks. Although this bill pretends that most of its welfare benefit increases will lapse after two years, the intend for most of these increases to become permanent. Instead of Welfare ending for recipients in 5 years that was done during the Clinton administration, now welfare entitlements will be open ended.

Snip>

Gun Control

In the first session of Congress the liberals introduced H.R. 45 (Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009). This bill targets anyone who owns a gun by requiring them to register all guns within 2 years. Every 5 years the gun owners much go through a renewal process for each gun they own. Failure to comply with these rules carry heavy penalties jail time and loosing your guns. Probably the worst provision authorizes government searches without warrants. A new federal bureaucracy will be created to monitor this process. Do you really expect the liberal elites to allow automatic gun renewal?

Silencing The Media

To anyone but the most ardent liberal, it’s quite apparent that the majority of the media is blatantly supporting Obama’s every action. The revelation that for 17 years Rahm Emanuel (Obama’s Chief of Staff), George Stephanopoulos (ABC News), James Carville and Paul Begala (CNN) have had daily hour long calls that have continued into the Obama administration is but one example. Even though CNN is selling Obama shirts they will tell you they are not biased. Actions by the Obama administration have made it quite apparent to the media you are either with Obama or you will systematically be silenced.

For those that don’t follow “the program”, you will be punished. For example, during the election the Washington Times, Fox News, N.Y. Post and Dallas Morning News got kicked off Obama’s plane. It wasn’t lost on the press that all these groups were McCain supporters. During press conferences Obama preselects who will be called to ask questions. Ask the wrong questions and you won’t get picked again. Again this isn’t lost on the adoring press.

Using one of Saul Alinsky’s sayings “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”, President Obama told Republican’s “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.” Although so far President Obama has claimed he doesn’t want a fairness doctrine, there is a growing push to bring back some form of the “Fairness Doctrine”.

Obama has already talked about wanting more minority ownership and requiring broadcasters to operate “in the public interest” which will be overseen by government or community groups. To add to the pressure shortening licensing terms will make it more likely owner will just abandon talk radio. The House Energy and Commerce Committee is also looking into policies that would allow it greater internet oversight.

Census

The census taking is supposed to be ruled in a bipartisan manner. However, the Obama administration is attempting to move the execution of the U.S. Census from the Department of Commerce to the White House under Rahm Emanuel’s control. This is totally unprecedented and against federal law. Sen. Judd Gregg withdrew his name from consideration as Sec. of Commerce in large part because of this action.

So what is the problem with having the White House running the Census? The census results drive how welfare and aid to states is distributed. Further congressional seats per state and the electoral college changes with these results.

Instead of having the normal direct count, Rahm Emanuel wants to estimate numbers instead of an actual count for minority groups. To make matters even more interesting, under the White House direction there would be less requirements for openness as to the process that was used to arrive at the census results. Talk about the potential for major gerrymandering that could bring a windfall of new Democrat votes.

Illegal Immigrates Getting Amnesty

Once again there is an immigration bill working its way through Congress. It would give Illegal Aliens 24 hour to get access with their lawyers paid with tax payer dollars. Temporary Visa can be renewed indefinitely. Illegal Aliens won’t have to pay back taxes but will get tax credits. North American Union will be fast tracked.

District of Columbia to have Congressional Votes

Democrats want to give full representative to District of Columbia thereby giving them two senators and a representative for the House of Representatives. Since only states have this ability, Congress will pass a law giving the District of Columbia “the functional equivalent of a state”. On February 11, 2009 a senate committee passed this very bill and will be voted on by all members in the coming weeks. You would be right if you guessed that the District of Columbia would vote Democratic?

Civilian Expeditionary Workforce

While on the campaign trail Barack Obama said “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” You Tube Link

Now, the Defense Department has established just such a “Civilian Expeditionary Workforce” (Defense Department Directive 1404.10) that will see American civilians trained and equipped to deploy overseas in support of worldwide military missions. Link According to a Defense Department report the intent of this program “is to maximize the use of the civilian workforce to allow military personnel to be fully utilized for operational requirements,”

Is this an initial step towards fulfilling president Obama’s promise to form a civilian national security force as powerful as the U.S. military? Will this “Civilian Expeditionary Workforce” ever be used in the US? Will we see “youth brigades” roaming the streets to protect us? We will have to keep a close eye on this.

Bridget Rants: Why Would I Want Obama’s Bad Policies to Succeed?

Bridget Rants: Why Would I Want Obama’s Bad Policies to Succeed???

By Bridget

You know I’m getting a little sick of hearing people say, “Well, no matter what your political party, it’s a good thing that Obama was elected,” or “It says a lot about our country that we elected a black president,” or “Boy, even though I didn’t vote for him, I hope he succeeds.” Well guess what, THAT IS RIDICULOUS!!  

Apparently, this really WAS about race for a lot of people, and it’s not the people you think. It wasn’t about race for conservatives, it was about race for liberals and those who want to be politically correct and make themselves look good for electing a black man.

First of all, don’t we want the best person for the job NO MATTER what color he is?

Second, why would I want him to succeed if his policies are bad for America, bad for Christians, and against what the Bible teaches?  That’s just stupid!

And why would I celebrate JUST because he’s black, especially if I honestly think his policies are wrong?

What is wrong with people? They like the idea of CHANGE just for the sake of change, not because it’s a good change. Frankly, I’m getting tired of people, especially Christians, who overlook the harm Obama can do JUST because he’s black.

  • Hey Christians who voted for Obama, how does it make you feel that more babies will be aborted because of Obama and we will be helping to fund it around the world?
  • How will it make you feel that he wants to defeat all state and federal constitutional efforts to defend the millennia-old definition of natural marriage
  • How does it make you feel that he wants to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) signed by Bill Clinton-the only line of defense keeping all 50 states from being forced to recognize so-called “same-sex marriages” from extremely liberal states like Massachusetts and Connecticut;
  • How does it make you feel that your parental rights may be completely taken away by the gov’t if Obama helps ratify the treaty before the UN? This means if they don’t like how you are parenting your children they can step in and stop it – from church attendance to what school they attend to how you discipline them.
  • How does it make you feel that Christian institutions will be discriminated against even more, or that religious groups may not be able to use public school facilities anymore due to a provision in the stimulus bill?
  • How does it make you feel that you probably made it easier for pastors to be tried for hate speech if they preach against homosexuality?
  • How will you feel when your pastor has to marry gays or be in violation of the law?
  • How will it make you feel when your church has to hire gays or be in violation of  the law?
  • How does it make you feel that Obama wants to increase gay adoptions?
  • How does it make you feel that we are headed straight towards socialism which is in direct contradiction to the Bible?

How will you feel after all of that? Will you be glad you voted for him or rooted for his success ? Will you be proud that you voted for a ‘change’?

  • What about the fact that he put a person in charge of the treasury who didn’t pay his taxes?? Is that the change you wanted?
  • What about the fact that he also appointed several others who had ethical’ problems?
  • What about the fact that he went to a church for 20 years that was led by a racist, divisive pastor?
  • What about the fact that he has been associated with some very shady people – Rezko, Bill Ayers, anti-semites? Do you just overlook that because he’s black?
  • What about the fact that he spoke out against lobbyists yet he has appointed so many of them to top spots?

What is it about this man that has you so enraptured and so blind to his faults? You certainly weren’t blind to Bush’s faults, even if they were minor ones. Every thing Bush said or did was ridiculed, mocked,and overblown. Yet you calmly overlook major problems with Obama.

I just don’t get it.

I hope the ‘good feeling’ it gave you was worth it.

I hope the pats on the back you got from your liberal friends was worth it.

I hope the feeling of superiority it gives you was worth it.

I hope the ‘feeling of unity with the other side’ was worth it.

But for me, if it means sacrificing America, giving up freedom, going against Christian principals, and helping evil win, it is DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT!!!

All you Obama worshippers and misguided Christians who got all warm and fuzzy by voting for him need to GET A GRIP!

I’m sick of all this garbage!! And I’m sick of the fact that nobody wants to say anything about if for fear of being politically incorrect or being called a racist.  Hey, I don’t agree with the guy’s  policies and I couldn’t care less what color he is, so don’t talk to me about race unless it’s an issue for you!

Excerpt:

President Obama has had, by general consent, a torrid First Fortnight. To put it another way, it has taken precisely two weeks for the illusion that brought him to power to be exposed for the nonsense that it so obviously was. The transformational candidate who was going to sweep away pork-barrel politics, lobbyists and corruption has been up to his neck in sleaze, as eviscerated here by Charles Krauthammer. Despite the fact that he came to power promising to ‘ban all earmarks’, his ‘stimulus’ bill represents billions of dollars of special-interest tax breaks, giveaways and protections — which have nothing to do with kick-starting the economy and everything to do with favouring pet Democrat causes.

He has been appointing one tax dodger, lobbyist and wheeler-dealer after another. After appointing one official,Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who had unaccountably forgotten to pay his taxes, he then watched his designated Health Secretary Tom Daschle fall on his sword because he too had taken a tax holiday. Daschle was furthermore a prominent actor in the world of lobbying and influence-peddling. Leon Panetta, Obama’s nominee for Director of the CIA has also, according to the Wall Street Journal, consulted for prominent companies and sat on the board of a public affairs firm that lobbies Congress. The Weekly Standard reports that Secretary of Labour nominee Hilda Solis was not only involved with a private organization lobbying her fellow legislators on a bill that she helped sponsor, but she apparently kept her involvement secret and failed to reveal a clear conflict of interest.

In foreign policy, Obama has started by trashing his own country through grossly misrepresenting its history and grovelling to America’s enemies such as Iran, which has flicked him aside with undiluted contempt. He has gratuitously upset America’s ally India by suggesting that America should muscle in and resolve the Kashmir question.

His right hand doesn’t seem to know what his left hand is doing. He reportedly asked retired Marine General Anthony Zinni to be US ambassador to Iraq, but then abruptly withdrew the appointment without explanation after it had been confirmed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And the precise role he is offering Dennis Ross – special envoy to Iran? Special adviser to Hillary? Special adviser to other special advisers? – remains mired in confusion.

I have argued before however that, given Obama’s radical roots in the neo-Marxist, nihilist politics of Saul Alinsky, it is the undermining of America’s fundamental values that is likely to be this President’s most strategically important goal. I have also suggested that, since this agenda is promoted through stealth politics which gull the credulous middle-classes while destroying the ground upon which they are standing, his second-tier appointments should be closely scrutinised.

*snip*

And how did the 44th President react to the growing public dismay over the mess he was making? He threw his toys out of the pram — or perhaps that should read, he got into the pram. For he fled the scene of the disaster and sought the company of seven year-olds instead. As the Telegraph reported:

‘We were just tired of being in the White House,’ he told a group of excited seven-year-olds before discussing Batman and reading them a book.

Tired of being President – after two weeks!

Tax cheats, pork-barrel politics, ancillary child abuse, incompetence, chaos, treachery and infantilism. America – what have you done?!

Ice Cream Social(ism)

Posted on February 5, 2009. Filed under: Obama, Politics, Socialism/Communism |

Someone sent this to me and I love it. It sums things up very well. Unfortunately I know people who voted for Obama because of the ice cream he promised and they’re too dense to realize we don’t have a way to pay for it!!

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
~~Margaret Thatcher~~

Ice Cream Social (ism)

Here’s a cute summation of our political concerns from a teacher in the Nashville area:

We are worried about “the cow” when it is all about the “Ice Cream.”

The most eye opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year. The presidential election was heating up, and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president.

We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech, and the class would vote.

To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.

The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia’s mother.

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches. Jamie went first. He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best. Everyone applauded. He sat down and Olivia came to the podium.

Her speech was concise. She said, “If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream.” She sat down. The class went wild.
“Yes! Yes! We want ice cream.”

She surely would have said more. She did not have to. A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn’t sure. Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it? She didn’t know. The class really didn’t care. All they were thinking about was ICE CREAM.

Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.

Every time Barack Obama opens his mouth he offers ice cream. Fifty percent of the people react like nine-year-olds; they want ice cream.

The other fifty percent know they’re going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.

Sacramento City Council Goes Against Voters and Votes to Join Anti-Prop 8 Resolution

Posted on February 5, 2009. Filed under: Gay Agenda, Liberal Idiots, Political Correctness, Politicians, Politics |

Well, well, well…Thanks a lot you idiots in the Sac City Council. The voters have voted TWICE in favor of Prop 8 and then you have the audacity to ‘speak for’ Sacramento and support this Anti-Prop 8 Resolution???? The vote was NO. What part of that don’t you understand and why do you think you should overrule what the people want? It’s infuriating and Kevin Johnson will not get my vote next time. Thank you Robbie Waters for being the lone sane voice. We should contact these city council members (including the mayor) and let them know how we feel about this!!!

Sacramento joins other cities in fighting voter-approved Prop. 8, calling it unconstitutional
By Ryan Lillis
rlillis@sacbee.com

Published: Tuesday, Feb. 03, 2009

The Sacramento City Council voted Tuesday afternoon to join other California cities in supporting the position that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional.

Prop. 8, passed by voters in November, amended the state constitution to declare that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid in California.

Councilman Kevin McCarty requested last month that the council hear the issue of whether the city should join as “amicus curiae” – or friends of the court – in legal challenges against Prop. 8. The California Supreme Court said Tuesday it would begin hearing oral arguments on the challenge to Prop. 8 on March 5.

The council voted 8-1 to join the other cities as amicus curiae; Councilman Robbie Waters voted against the move, saying “the voters have voted on this matter twice.”

San Francisco, Berkeley, Cloverdale, Davis, Fairfax, Long Beach, Palm Springs and West Hollywood, as well as Santa Clara, Humboldt and Sonoma counties have already filed amicus curiae briefs supporting the position that Prop. 8 is unconstitutional.

Conservative Groups Declare Obama’s Stimulus Bill a War on Prayer

Posted on February 5, 2009. Filed under: Education Idiocy, Obama, Politicians, Politics, Religion, Reverse Discrimination |

Well, Obama shows his true colors once again. Thanks to all the brainwashed nutjobs who voted for him (including the misguided Christians who did so), our religious liberties will continue to dwindle. A provision in the stimulus bill BANS money designated for school renovations from being spent on facilities that allow “religious worship.” So what will happen then?? Well, public schools will probably no longer permit religious groups to meet on campus and those who do will not get financial help.

 

Conservative Groups Declare Obama’s Stimulus Bill a War on Prayer
By Cristina Corbin

FOXNews.com

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

Democrats in Congress have declared war on prayer, say conservative groups who object to a provision in the stimulus bill that was passed by the House of Representatives last week.

The provision bans money designated for school renovation from being spent on facilities that allow “religious worship.” It has ignited a fury among critics who say it violates the First Amendment and is an attempt to prevent religious practice in schools.

According to the bill, which the Democratic-controlled House passed despite unanimous Republican opposition, funds are prohibited from being used for the “modernization, renovation, or repair” of facilities that allow “sectarian instruction, religious worship or a school or department of divinity.”

Critics say that could include public schools that permit religious groups to meet on campus. The House provided $20 billion for the infrastructure improvements, of which $6 billion would go to higher education facilities where the limitations would be applied.

What the government is doing is discriminating against religious viewpoints,” said Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, a Washington-based nonprofit organization that works to advance religious freedom.

“President Obama’s version of faith-based initiatives is to remove the faith from initiative,” said Staver, who believes Obama has “a completely different view on faith” from what he said during his presidential campaign.

“He is not the infallible messiah that some thought he would be,” Staver said.

Civil liberty groups like the Americans United for Separation of Church and State vehemently defend the stimulus bill’s provision, arguing that it in no way violates the Constitution.

“This provision upholds constitutional standards established by the U.S. Supreme Court and in no way affects student groups that meet on public school campuses,” said the Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

The American Civil Liberties Union also defends the constitutionality of the restriction, which they say has been the law since 1972.

“It’s almost a restatement of what the Constitution requires so there’s nothing novel in what the House did in its restriction,” said Christopher Anders, senior legislative counsel to the ACLU. “For 37 years, the law of the land is that the government can’t pay for buildings that are used for religious purposes.”

Not so, says the Traditional Values Coalition, which issued a statement Wednesday charging that Obama is using his stimulus plan to restrict the exercise of religion in public facilities — a provision it says violates the right to free speech.

“The economic crisis is being used as a pretext to curb religious liberty at institutions of higher learning,” said Executive Director Andrea Lafferty.

“We are not asking that federal funding be used to construct a church, but if a campus ministry wants to hold a Bible study or Mass in the student activity building, we should be encouraging that — not punishing a college for permitting it,” she said.

According to some constitutional law experts, any complaint filed against the provision will gain little ground in court.

“Certainly the provision is treating the act of religious organizations differently from the activities of the school itself,” Harvard University constitutional law professor Mark Tushnet told FOXNews.com.

“It’s not frivolous to say there’s a constitutional problem with excluding religious facilities from these grants, but I think the way of the law is in the other direction,” he said.

Tushnet cited a 2004 Supreme Court case in which a Washington student lost a college scholarship awarded by the state after it was revealed that he planned to pursue a degree in pastoral ministries. Though the student argued that rescinding the money discriminated on the basis of religion, the court ruled in the state’s favor — declaring that the taxpayer-funded scholarship’s restriction is constitutional.

The White House said Wednesday that it plans to keep in place the basic structure of the faith-based initiative office established by former President George W. Bush.

Administration officials said the office is a substantial programming and policy arm of the federal government, which allows federal agencies to connect with local neighborhood and faith-based groups to deliver social services.

Facing $42 billion deficit, state pushes homosexual guardianship

SACRAMENTO – Facing a $42 billion deficit and a state debt that grows by $28,000 every minute, California has managed to find enough room in its budget to sponsor an elaborate statewide campaign to promote homosexual adoption.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has partnered with the California Department of Social Services and the Los Angeles County to promote a “Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Family” campaign that invites homosexuals, bisexuals and transsexuals to adopt children.

According to a Campaign for Children and Families report, the state has sponsored two billboards promoting “gay” adoption in West Hollywood and Alameda County.

In April 2007, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed John Wagner as director of the Department of Social Services. Wagner is openly “gay” and is an advisory member of the Human Rights Campaign.

Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families, a California pro-family organization, released a statement saying the state has no business sponsoring the campaign when it has decided to issue taxpayers IOUs in place of their annual returns.

“At a time when the state doesn’t have enough money to provide hard-working people with their tax refunds, it’s a shame that state and county funds are being wasted on this propaganda,” he said.

Proponents claim sexual orientation shouldn’t be an issue because thousands of kids need loving homes.

“They provide loving, stable and permanent homes for kids who need them,” Robyn Harrod, spokeswoman for Southern California Adoption Agency, told Los Angeles’ ABC 7 News. “And, it makes absolutely no difference whether they are gay, straight, single, married … They just need to love kids and want to provide a home for them.”

According to its website, the HRC “Family Project’s All Children – All Families” initiative works “to ensure that all qualified prospective parents who wish to open their homes and hearts to children and youth have the opportunity to do so, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”

While the campaign claims to be acting in the interest of more than 100,000 U.S. children waiting to be adopted by loving families, none of its promotional images feature heterosexual parents. It lists adoption agencies in 15 states that are currently participating in the initiative and are “committed to implementing policies and practices that welcome, affirm and support LGBT foster and adoptive parents.”

Former Gov. Gray Davis quietly dropped a California policy opposing “gay” adoption in 1999. In 2001, the state Legislature passed AB 25, allowing a homosexual person to adopt a partner’s child using the stepparent adoption process. The California Supreme Court affirmed “second-parent adoptions” in 2003.

Approximately 65,000 adopted children are currently being raised by same-sex couples in the U.S., according to a March 2007 report by the Urban Institute and the Williams Institute at UCLA.

The Campaign for Children and Families cited a 2001 University of Southern California “study of studies” on raising children in same-sex families titled, “(How) Does the Sexual Orientation of Parents Matter?” The campaign includes the following discoveries by sociology professors Judith Stacey and Timothy Blibarz on its website:

A significantly greater proportion of young adult children raised by lesbian mothers than those raised by heterosexual mothers say they have experienced sexual intimacy with a partner of the same sex. They were not, however, statistically more likely to identify themselves as gay or lesbian.
Young girls raised by lesbians are more likely to be sexually adventurous and active than their counterparts raised by heterosexual parents. However the sons of lesbians exhibit “an opposite pattern” and are likely to be less adventurous and active than boys raised by heterosexual households.
Lesbian mothers reported that their children behave in ways that do not conform to “sex-typed cultural norms.” And the sons of lesbians are reportedly less likely to behave in traditionally masculine ways than those raised by heterosexual couples.
Thomasson said children are more likely to experience healthy childhoods when they are raised by loving heterosexual parents.

“God created fathers and mothers so that children could have the best chance at life,” he said. “Studies show that children raised in homosexual and transsexual households are highly likely to experience sexual confusion and to act out homosexually, bisexually and transsexually when they otherwise would not.”

Thomasson continued, “When the facts confirm that children do best with a married father and mother, there is no reason other than selfishness for anyone to advocate placing vulnerable children into these sexually confused and sexually charged environments.”
