What a Circus

If the spectacle could not be further insulting, the insanity on going in Copenhagen added a list of clown speakers....., muttering mumbo jumbo and all sorts of buffoonish gabaldy goo, this is nuts.

Two More Ludicrous Demands

1) Before his meeting with top banking CEOs today, President Barack Obama called Wall Street bankers “fat cats” on 60 Minutes and is demanding bankers tell their loan officers they will not be rewarded for turning down loans.

Hmmm, banks want to lend $ as this is core to their business. Of course there are requirements in order to get a loan as just like you (if you were loaning) would like to have a good feeling that this person borrowing is able to pay you back. Now the President steps in and says the above? Hmmm.....

2) Copenhagen negotiations are far apart as poorer countries are demanding billions in financial payments before they agree to reduce emissions.

A $ hoax just further revealed itself.

Thanks to the Heritage Foundation for the input.

“Matt Damon Says Nelson Mandela Great Political Leader of His Lifetime”…
“Angelia Jolie is calling out the Obama administration for its approach to the situation in Sudan”
Well, well, my goodness…Matt said, Angelina said…Who cares? Who really cares what Matt, Angelina or any other actor, actress, singer or sports figure says?
Are we really that pitiful that we need to know what these people think? Are we such imbeciles that we are going to make our decisions based on such sources? What about what your neighbor thinks, and his neighbor and her neighbor…let’s put it on the Internet…Joe Snuffy of Maple Wood Dr. said, “ He believes nincompoop should not have won the Nobel Peace Prize.” There you have it straght from Joe Snuffy!
Please people this is one of many issues we face today….priorities are upside down. Think for yourself and let these well paid entertainers “entertain.”

Where is the money coming from to pay for the health care reform?

Thanks to the contributing writer.....

All of us should ask this question and get an answer that makes sense. If you just ask simple questions and look at what the bill states it does not make sense. Companies do not pay taxes. They pass this expense on in the products they sale. GM’s medical cost adds $1,500 to the price of a $21,000 Chevy Impala. Who do you think is going to bear the cost of excise tax the Medical device and Health insurance companies will see? These are two of the primary sources of income to pay for this bill. But my questions is “Who is going to be the one to pay this bill,".....yyyyaaaaa-----YOU! & ......I.

Gov't Services, Cost Rise & Service Falls


To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,


The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 and it is now broke.
Social Security was established in 1935 and it is now broke.
Fannie Mae was established in 1938 and it is now broke.
War on Poverty started in 1964; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.
Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965 and they are now broke.
Freddie Mac was established in 1970 and it is now broke.
The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. It is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??

Notice Points for the Week

1. Lou Dobbs has finally joined a winning team (he left CNN, wherever he works will be better).

2. FOX NFL Sunday had their show from Afghanistan, kudos and bravo for taking the steps to get out and MOTIVATE and PROMOTE our soldiers....THANK YOU & DO MORE of this!

3. The book titled, "The Next 100 Years," by George Friedman is a serious read concerning his views on the future geo-political scene (politicians should take notice).

4. The characters (yes characters, like "Goofy, Shrek, Dopey") that represent us in our national government seem so at odds with common sense. How does this fly? Continually points are raised that no sane, educated person would actually vote for BUT they are voted for and Pass...hugh????

America...Waking Up, From the Heritage Foundation

Conservative Comeback
Tuesday was a big day for conservatives. The landslide victories of gubernatorial candidates Bob McDonnell in Virginia and Chris Christie in New Jersey, plus the Maine referendum upholding marriage as a union between a man and a woman, clearly illustrates that "the state of conservatism is strong," writes Heritage's Conn Carroll in Wednesday's Morning Bell.
But why would states that voted last year for President Barack Obama now vote against candidates the President himself campaigned for? Heritage Vice President Michael Franc explains that "it's all about taxes, debt, and too much government." In short, it's about the government's complete abandonment of conservative principles.
The results in Virginia, New Jersey and Maine confirm what has become increasingly evident over the past 10 months: conservative principles are very much alive and popular among most Americans.

FT.Hood Tragedy

Recent tragedy that unfolded at Ft.Hood is a very sad event. The community of heroes that serves to protect came under fire from within. A shocking, surreal event. Not down trodden though we hold our heads in our hands, pray for guidance and will pick ourselves up and carry on. God bless these men and women and their families.

Reid's Government-run Health insurance

Heritage fellows Edmund Haislmaier, Dennis Smith, and Nina Owcharenko have explained why this model is guaranteed to fail: “Simply calling some form of a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) a “cooperative,” for instance, would be only another type of public plan in disguise. … One need look no further than Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to see how GSEs can distort the market and leave taxpayers with huge liabilities. Decades of market distortions generated by their implicit government backing, compounded by the effects of repeated political meddling by Congress, put those GSEs at the very epicenter of the mortgage market collapse that triggered the current financial crisis and recession.”

More from that Crazy, Racist Glenn Beck....

Like I told you last night, the White House hopes their Enron-esque accounting practices are too complicated and boring for you to talk about. But maybe they aren't after all — because the $247 billion "doc fix" — which isn't a "doc fix," it's a $247 billion "doctor bribe" to get the doctors to shut their mouth — it was defeated in the Senate.

Ahmmmm, some signs of life....

You have to read all the way to page A-25 in today’s New York Times to learn about it, but the Senate took its first floor vote on Obamacare yesterday and the White House lost. Big. The NYT reports: “Democrats lost a big test vote on health care legislation on Wednesday as the Senate blocked action on a bill to increase Medicare payments to doctors at a cost of $247 billion over 10 years. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, needed 60 votes to proceed. He won only 47. And he could not blame Republicans. A dozen Democrats and one independent crossed party lines and voted with Republicans on the 53 to 47 roll call.”

How to Create Jobs

WYNN: Government has never increased the standard of living of one single human being in civilization's history. For some reason that simple truth has evaded everybody. The only thing that creates an increased standard of living is giving someone a job, the demand for their labor -- whether it's you and I, Chris, or anybody else. The people that are paying the price for this juggernaut of federal spending are the middle class and the working class of America.

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

ONE OF THE BEST EXPLANATIONS OF WHY OBAMA WON THE ELECTION --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 and he sat down.
Now is was Olivia's turn to speak. 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 say 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 opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 52 percent of the people reacted like nine year olds. They want ice cream. The other 48 percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess." This is the ice cream Obama promised us! Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone -- that they have not first taken away from someone else.

And we hardly heard about this from the mainstream media!!!!!!
















And we hardly heard about this from the mainstream media!!!!!!
Have you heard that they are now estimating 2 million in attendance? A far cry from the 5,000 the media "anticipated".
The crowd was not unruly and "mob-like". They even picked up their own trash (took their own trashbags) because they assumed (correctly) that the National Park Service would not provide the correct amount of trashbins. They only had enough the bare minimum portajohn facilities for a much smaller crowd even though there were estimates of higher numbers it be attending. John said they were standing 50 and 60 people in a line to use a portajohn. Unbelievable! They just didn't want to make this easy. People who live in the area and ride the metro to work said they weren't running as many trains as they usually run much less MORE in anticipation of a large crowd.
Feel free to pass this on to others.
Please forward to the whole COUNTRY ! WE've got enough sleep, It's Time To WAKE UP AMERICA ! And let the whole world know we are AWAKE ! No MORE Naps !
No fighting, no smoking dope, no drinking, no arrests.
Yours in the fight to preserve our Republic,

No lice-infested, long-haired, dope-smoking, hippie types here. If they're trying to be an out-of-control violent mob, they need a lot more practice...and motivation. Somehow they don't look like the "astroturf mob" Pelosi and company are claiming attend these sort of rallys.

Is America Coming Apart?

Posted: September 10, 20097:53 pm Eastern© 2009

Flying home from London , where the subject of formal debate on the 70th anniversary of World War II had been whether Winston Churchill was a liability or asset to the Free World, one arrives in the middle of a far more acrimonious national debate right here in the United States .
At issue: Should Barack Obama be allowed to address tens of millions of American children, inside their classrooms, during school hours?
Conservative talk-show hosts saw a White House scheme to turn public schools into indoctrination centers where the socialist ideology of Obama would be spoon-fed to captive audiences of children forced to listen to Big Brother -- and then do assignments on his sermon.
The liberal commentariat raged about right-wing paranoia.
Yet Byron York of the Washington Examiner dug back to 1991 to discover that, when George H.W. Bush went to Alice Deal Junior High to speak to America 's school kids, the left lost it.
"The White House turned a Northwest Washington junior high classroom into a television studio and its students into props," railed the Washington Post. Education Secretary Lamar Alexander was called before a House committee. The National Education Association denounced Bush. And Congress ordered the General Accounting Office to investigate.
Obama's actual speech proved about as controversial as a Nancy Reagan appeal to eighth-graders to "Just say no!" to drugs.
Yet, the episode reveals the poisoned character of our politics.
We saw it earlier on display in August, when the crowds that came out for town hall meetings to oppose Obama's health-care plans were called "thugs," "fascists," "racists" and "evil-mongers" by national Democrats.
We see it as Rep. Joe Wilson shouts, "You lie!" at the president during his address to a joint session of Congress.
We seem not only to disagree with each other more than ever, but to have come almost to detest one another. Politically, culturally, racially, we seem ever ready to go for each others' throats.
One half of America sees abortion as the annual slaughter of a million unborn. The other half regards the right-to-life movement as tyrannical and sexist.
Proponents of gay marriage see its adversaries as homophobic bigots. Opponents see its champions as seeking to elevate unnatural and immoral relationships to the sacred state of traditional marriage.
The question invites itself. In what sense are we one nation and one people anymore? For what is a nation if not a people of a common ancestry, faith, culture and language, who worship the same God, revere the same heroes, cherish the same history, celebrate the same holidays and share the same music, poetry, art and literature?
Yet, today, Mexican-Americans celebrate Cinco de Mayo, a skirmish in a French-Mexican war about which most Americans know nothing, which took place the same year as two of the bloodiest battles of our own Civil War: Antietam and Fredericksburg.
Christmas and Easter, the great holidays of Christendom, once united Americans in joy. Now we fight over whether they should even be mentioned, let alone celebrated, in our public schools.
Where we used to have classical, pop, country & Western and jazz music, now we have varieties tailored to specific generations, races and ethnic groups. Even our music seems designed to subdivide us.
One part of America loves her history, another reviles it as racist, imperialist and genocidal. Old heroes like Columbus, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee are replaced by Dr. King and Cesar Chavez.
But the old holidays, heroes and icons endure, as the new have yet to put down roots in a recalcitrant Middle America .
We are not only more divided than ever on politics, faith and morality, but along the lines of class and ethnicity. Those who opposed Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court and stood by Sgt. Crowley in the face-off with Harvard's Henry Louis Gates were called racists. But this time they did not back down. They threw the same vile word right back in the face of their accusers, and Barack Obama.
Consider but a few issues on which Americans have lately been bitterly divided: school prayer, the Ten Commandments, evolution, the death penalty, abortion, homosexuality, assisted suicide, affirmative action, busing, the Confederate battle flag, the Duke rape case, Terri Schiavo, Iraq, amnesty, torture.
Now it is death panels, global warming, "birthers" and socialism. If a married couple disagreed as broadly and deeply as Americans do on such basic issues, they would have divorced and gone their separate ways long ago. What is it that still holds us together?
The European-Christian core of the country that once defined us is shrinking, as Christianity fades, the birth rate falls and Third World immigration surges. Globalism dissolves the economic bonds, while the cacophony of multiculturalism displaces the old American culture.
"E pluribus unum" – out of many, one - was the national motto the men of '76 settled upon. One sees the pluribus. But where is the unum? One sees the diversity. But where is the unity?
Is America , too, breaking up?

Outburst! I Couldn't Let this Go

As per Yahoo News, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed a fierce frown at him; first lady Michelle Obama pursed her lips and shook her head from side to side. Vice President Joe Biden looked down and shook his head, too."
Well there you have it, the ministers of good etiquette have cast their shadow upon the individual Congressman whose emotions got the better of him. Mercy, please.

Seems I remember from history class that in the making of this nation, with some of the most intellectual government representatives this country has EVER had, the congressional meetings/conferences were quite "heated," with debates, name calling and likewise. Seems people do this when they feel passionate about the subject being discussed. Too bad Nancy Pelosi, Michele Obama and Joe Biden missed their chance to LOOK DOWN THEIR NOSES to the likes of John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison.....hmm where we would be today if those former persons had been around at that time?

I agree..Just turn around and use the same expressions

The current president in his address to the joint house of Congress closed his speech in the following manner;

"I still believe we can act even when it's hard. I still believe we can replace
acrimony with civility, and gridlock with progress. I still believe we can do
great things, and that here and now we will meet history's test.
"Because that is who we areCheck Spelling. That is our calling. That is our character. Thank you, God
bless you, and may God bless the United States of America."


I also believe in these same great things it's just that we should use these words in the correct manner for the proper subject of addressing the real issues of our time. Do you really believe the health care initiative is from the goodness of their hearts? Would it, could it, possibly have something to do with $, changing hands of power from the individual to the state? Please wake up, has anyone from the gov't ever given anything to you for free?

Great words, lyric, poetic even but just a waste when used to address a topic sending us in the wrong direction.

True? -or- a moronic conspiracy idea? Have fun with it.

OK, It's a long one.....though I can not confirm all points made I can ascertain it makes interesting reading.....investigate it yourselves

Chrysler - Scandal of Epic Proportions? For your mind to digest... True? -or- a moronic conspiracy idea? Have fun with it.
This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon's Watergate or Clinton’s Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed? Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straights and federal government graciously offered to "buy the company" and keep them out of bankruptcy and "save jobs." Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, "Too big to fail," same story with GM.
The feds organized their "Automotive Task Force" to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House's official Car Czar- literally, that's what his title is. Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM.
Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler had made this list of dealerships to be closed. That is not true. The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the "Automotive Task Force" headed by no one other then Mr. Steve Rattner. Now the plot thickens. Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed? Actually there's a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed the connection. Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government 788 had donated money, exclusively, to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only "Democratic" dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary's campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama's campaign. Does thatseem a little odd to you?
Steve Rattner, the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a babe named Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she would have access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation, Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky coincidence, we're certain.
Then comes another really wacky coincidence. On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas, North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri. It seems that Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealerships in that region, partnered with a fellow by the name of Robert Johnson. Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier. These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers.Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed - not one- while all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were! Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus, by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone. Isn't that amazing? Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story's there, and it's in a dozen or so other web-based news organization, this isn't being made up.
Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are truly mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Worker's union- Fiat owns 20%.The other 15% is till privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn't want to run the auto industry.
As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America, it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don't agree with his political agenda. This is Nazi Germany/Italian Fascism stuff, and it's happening right here, right now, in your back yard. There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the "Automotive Task Force" has released no information to the public or any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done. Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you've ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation on this.
Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, "All that's necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
Car Czar No More
An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama's Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom. According to CBS News, Rattner left "to return to private life and spend time with his family." Treasure Secretary Tim Geithner said, "I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future." By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York.Uh-oh! But, we're certain that had nothing to do with his resignation. And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he's being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn't have anything to with his resignation- that's ridiculous!Like CBS said, this guy just wants to spend more quality time with his family. Obama has thirty-two personally appointed "czars" that answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority. But hey, we're sure they all have "unique skills," as Tim Geithner likes to say.

When Adults will not listen…..

“President to make Un-precedented address to Public School students,” read the headline. Approval ratings dropping, ObamaCare stalling near ka-put, Americans becoming energized and standing up to say enough is enough. When under a barrage of criticism I suppose the idea is to address an audience who will not oppose you. Perhaps planting the seeds for future though I am sure parents fed up with government intrusion will tutor their children on the real message behind this “un-precented address.” I know I will.

Newt Gingrich...Trust the Government... Health Care Topic

http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=33100

Letter from Procter & Gamble Exec to Obama

Letter from Procter & Gamble Exec to Obama Please read, even if you are an Obama fan. It is legitimate, written by respected, Lou Prichett, formerly of Proctor and Gamble. Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America 's true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world's highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as "partnering." Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA Dear President Obama: You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core. You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others. You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail. You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad. You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector. You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one. You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.. You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world. You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations. You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do. You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view. You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years. Lou Pritchett TRUE - CHECK: http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/youscareme.asp This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise! Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing. It's happening right now.

Fourth Grade....Bravo

This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was brave enough to attach her name to it.
April 17, 2009
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington , DC 20500

Mr. Obama:
I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally. You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States .. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Sec ond World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United 20 States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You didn't show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey ... You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What's the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you..
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about=2 0the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven't said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn't!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, tha t's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.
I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

Sincerely,

Every real American

It does not take a Genıus

It does not take Genıus to realıze.....the below relates to the graph

Reidl explains that bailouts, the “stimulus” package, and expansions of entitlement programs have caused federal spending to increase at a pace not seen since World War II.

Here are some alarming statistics Riedl dug up:
$4.004 trillion -- federal government spending in 2009, a record.
$1.845 trillion -- federal spending beyond its means in 2009, the deficit.
$33,932 -- federal spending per household in 2009.
$25,969 -- federal spending per household in 2008.
$12,072 -- tax increases required per household to pay for runaway spending on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security by 2050. (Alternatively, we could reform the programs.)
46 cents -- amount of every dollar Washington spends in 2009 that will be borrowed.
32 percent -- increase in federal spending 2008-2009
13 percent -- amount of the 2009 budget deficit relative to America's economic output. This is double the previous record
President Obama has repeatedly excused the government's spending spree as a necessary, but temporary, consequence of an inherited problem. The trouble is, as Riedl notes, that this spending is far from temporary: the President's 2010 budget would "replace this temporary spending with new permanent programs."
The President's budget proposal would create annual deficits of just under $1 trillion over the next 10 years, which is double the pre-recession deficit. And this lofty figure doesn't even include the President's costly public health care plan, which Riedl says "just digs the nation's financial hole deeper."
Earlier this year, the President patted his administration on the back for saving a paltry $100 million. But there are real savings available: Riedl highlights the Congressional Budget Office's "Budget Options" book, which identifies $140 billion in potential spending cuts.

“Nanny-ism,” Is Not in Our Nation’s DNA

Stimulus bills, Corporate bail-outs (TARP), government created (by the way non-productive) jobs have become the latest and greatest. Popular sentiment demands that when free market ups and downs become too down the elected representatives need to step in and maintain our status, livelihoods and well-being. This “Nanny-ism,” ensures their re-election and the population feels provided for. Provided for? When did we give up on self initiative, study, hard work and frugality as pre-requisites for success? Perhaps we gave up when it became easier not to do these things. When did we stake our national standard as lackards? John F. Kennedy did not address a nation of lackards when he stated, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.. Each generation should look to ever higher goals than the previous generation accomplished. Government hand-outs retard our initiative, our growth and further drive us backwards. Our DNA is not comprised of such, we are not a Nanny state, it’s time to step up regain our drive, our initiative and commit to making ourselves better which will turn drive our nation to reach it’s potential.

Happy Birthday America!

Dear Friends and Family,

Today marks the 233rd birthday of our nation. On this date in 1776 our founding fathers ratified the Declaration of Independence. This set us on a path that carried mankind further and faster than any time in the history of the world. Bless God for his guidance given then and today and God Bless America!



Please see below FULL text;



When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.
He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.
He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.
He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.
We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Sad to Admit, Read it for Yourself & Wake Up

This is an article that appeared in a Russian newspaper.....

27.04.2009
Source: Pravda.Ru
URL: http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/107459-american_capitalism-0

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.
True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.
Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America .
The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America 's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.
These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?
These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.
Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.
So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK 's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.
Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper.
So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.
The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Banking & 1st Amendment - A letter Sent to Our Elected Officials

Dear Virginia Elected Officials,
We appreciate your attention to matters that are important not only for the Virginia constituents but also pressing for our nation. That is why I write to you again today to present our view on two important issues.
First addressing economic issues our government seems to have jumped into the financial fire headfirst without a viable plan other than providing such a blaze with more fuel to burn. It seems that at least part of our problems stem from loans given to persons UNQUALIFIED for such from commercial banks due to laws enacted enforcing them to do so. Being we are now in the difficult situation of balancing the books we would like to know whether these laws have been revoked or otherwise subjugated to new laws rendering them impotent? It would seem to be common sense that when a patient is bleeding profusely we need to apply severe pressure to stop such PRIOR to administering a transfusion. Repeal these laws that allow such practices and let banks carry on with their market place transactions.
Second issue concerns legislation introduced by Rep. Linda Sanchez, D- Los Angeles. Her measure known as HR 1966, labeled the Megan Meier Cyber-bullying Prevention Act, actually extends far beyond cyber-bullying and would seemingly make it a federal offense to log onto the internet or use the telephone since such methods of communication where hostile speech would be banned include e-mail, instant messaging, blogs, websites, telephones and text messages. Clearly in modern times as communication methods have improved and notification and sharing of issues is instantaneous we MUST still live by our Constitutional freedoms granted to us. Let us ensure that we continue to abide by the 1st amendment and that this measure is not carried forth under any loophole to dodge what our founders intended related to freedom of speech.
With kind regards and trusting in your actions,
Jonathan E. Varnell

Mr. and Mr. or Mrs. and Mrs.????

Mr. and Mr. or Mrs. and Mrs.???? There is something odd with this statement. I place my shield now.....I am not a hate-monger AND there is something odd with this first statement. More and more (unfortunately) we see issues making news that we would rather not see as news or see in any other light. One issue is homosexual marriage. I still shudder even saying such. Some things are wrong. Wrong to the core, just plain wrong. We were taught from an early age in church or from our parents reading the bible to us on such and other moral points for life. The goodness of our nation is founded on being a moral and just society. The extremely forward thinking founding fathers knew that religion was the backbone of maintaining our morals. No matter how much the "in," thing today is to bash religion it was and is an integral part of who we are. I have lived where religion is very much out of the everyday lives of society and believe me the morals are nonexistent. I do not want to go off in a different direction from where I started this but I'd like to tie the moral & just way of life to the error in believing such things as homosexual marriage, partnership, civil union or any other term for it.
We are bombarded through media outlets that this is "progressive," thinking and that this is the next great advancement of society. No matter how it is disguised it is repugnant to even consider gay rights on the same level as the struggle for civil rights for blacks earlier in our history. A matter of fact I will argue they are complete OPPOSITES. Being against someone due to their race "racism," is morally wrong and anyone condoning it is wrong in the eyes of our creator, persons suffering such should fight against such oppression. Two persons of the same sex forming a union/relationship/partnership as in the frame we understand as husband and wife is morally wrong and anyone doing such or condoning such is wrong in the eyes of our creator, persons seeing society condoning such should stand up and fight against this.
We must ensure the voice of the moral right is heard and that we protect our society from further degeneracy. We should not and will not allow persons wanting to participate in driving morals out of our society through whatever guise they may use to do so. Religion is the bastion of our principles, morals and upstanding guidelines for life. We have to bring such influence into our government and not separate it and treat it as an unenlightened force. I see no issue in doing so and not violating the separation church and state as I believe separation of church and state was intended to protect us from the government forcing a national religion upon us not to keep us away from religion. And any religion that people may practice (that does not cause harm to another) should be allowed to be practiced and it's thoughts and influence utilized by politicians practicing such. How can we separate the moral upbringing of a christian politician from the way his thoughts are formed and in turn legislation enacted? We can not and should not even try to. Many of the founding fathers were practicing worshippers of various faiths and they were able to all agree on "Our Creator." Fight for the moral protection of our nation, our children and our future. As a first step stand up and denounce homosexual marriage.

FDR D-Day Prayer

Spend 6 minutes and listen to a worthy speech from FDR given on D-Day June 6, 1944.
http://newt.org/FDRDDayPrayer/tabid/241/Default.aspx

I have to wonder being the base of the speech is a prayer to God for our nation and way of life what type reaction would we get from today's society for such. The ACLU and left-wing liberals would more than likely cry foul and demand it be rescinded or maybe he apologize. These persons have and do undermine the integrity of our nation, our founders wanted separation of church and state to ensure all persons have a right to practice what religion they may choose and even to do so using government buildings as long as there was equal access for all religions. These people have turned the principle upside down and in doing so have created a society where the moral base is degenerative. This fits in with the title of my page "Wake Up America," the left-wing is destroying us not protecting us.

GM is truly Government Motors

Another sad day is upon us and I must say another first I thought we'd never see has arrived. Our government (representing us) is now the largest stakeholder in a previously private company that received taxpayer funds to bail-out the company "to get it back on track." Adding to the list of bail-outs we have a Bail-out turned Bankrupt. Too big to fail? I question such. Who will be deemed next as too big to fail? Will the government mandate we must buy x% of cars from this company? Take a step back people, we are an independent nation because our forefathers (guided by providence) decided to say here and now we take a stand. Where is our stand? Our country is turned topsy-turvy by our "representatives," and now we own a car company. As a bonified taxpayer will I get a discount on the purchase of a GM vehicle? Seems fair since I've already contributed to the company's well-being. NO I WILL NOT BUY A GM and it's not because I do not support American businesses. I support the principles America was founded on where limited government is the best government and when the government becomes larger and steps into this (financial institutions) and that (automotive companies) and the other (medical care/insurance) I say enough.....by the way did you see that new FORD? Go FORD!

We the People want BIG cars and CHEAP gas....

I am waiting to see how this unfolds, government enters private sector(automotive), forces company to build the cars it says, no one wants/buys these "mandated," cars, other "wanted," car prices are increased to subsidize the "non-wanted," cars, and then gas is taxed higher to force more purchases of the mini-do-da hybrid tin cans.....THIS is where it will get interesting as ALL Americans will come out of the woods to protest this....the "Saviour," will need a miracle for that....should be better than American Idol (oh I haven't seen that anyway).

Pitiful President

I am a true-blooded American and take insult of our nation to heart but I have come to the point that must say we have a "pitiful President."
Obama presidency summed up in two sentences....Vasko Kohlmayer.
A well-put summary of Obama's presidency from Heritage:
By cloaking his domestic agenda in terms of economic recovery, President Obama and his team of liberals have been able to pass the largest spending bill in history, repeal welfare reform, set us on the course to socialized healthcare, advance a very costly energy policy, impose high costs on productive people, and enact unprecedented expansions of governmental power. Furthermore, by cutting the defense budget and ordering the closing of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, the President demonstrates his complacency toward national security and undermines our ability to respond to future attacks.

News on the Chrysler Saga

Thanks to who sent this to share...

This weekend there was some very interesting information about the Chrysler bankruptcy in Barron’s. This past week we had a lot of news about some debt holders not agreeing to the plan and holding out for more money and this forced Chrysler to file for bankrupt. I think that is a true statement but as with everything today not the entire story. When you have many groups holding debt of a company the debt holders are generally placed in similar groups as they would be in bankruptcy court.
Chrysler has four different groups of debt holders, 1st lien holders, 2nd lien holders, 3rd lien holders and unsecured. The group that should get the largest percent recovery is the 1st lien holder and each group there after getting a smaller percent. The unsecured holders may get nothing or a very small percent of their debt in a bankrupt court. The plan that was rejected shows the 1st lien holder with $6.9 billion and they were to get $2 billion (about 29 cents for each dollar of debt). The 2nd Lien holders had $2 billion and were getting nothing. The 3rd lien holder had $4.3 billion and they were to get 8% equity in the new company. The unsecured was $10.6 billion and they were getting $4.6 billion plus 55% of the new company. As you can see the numbers are all over the place.
The 1st lien holder is secured with all of the plants, inventory, equipment, the Chrysler name. They are the physical Chrysler and if the company is liquidated they are first in line for money (this is a group of banks and hedge funds, mutual funds, retirement funds). The 2nd lien holder is Cerberus/Daimler and they had stated they were not looking for any money or ownership in the new company. The 3rd lien holder is the U.S. Government we loaned Chrysler $4.3 billion and we were to get 8% in the new company (the value of the new Chrysler is estimated to be $10.billion so our share would be $800 million). This is a loss of $3.5 billion of the money loaned to Chrysler. This is you and I. The unsecured creditor is the UAW and they were to get $4.6 billion note at 9% interest plus 55% of the new company about $5.5 billion in value. The UAW was due $10.6 billion and would get 10.1 billion plus interest. The UAW would get almost 100% of the debt owed. The only ones taking a loss are the secured creditors.
It will be very interesting to see how the Bankruptcy Judge handles this. If the company presents the same plan they could have a real problem based on pervious history. The decision is in the hands of the bankruptcy judge and we will see this unfold over the next 60 to 90 days.

Another good article from Newt Gingrich

Fostering More Irresponsibility

Ladies & Gentlemen, in case you missed it,"Obama Administration Announces New Details on Making Home Affordable Program and Parallel Second Lien Program to Help Homeowners Achieve Greater, Affordability Integration of Hope for Homeowners to Help Underwater Borrowers Regain Equity in their Homes."

I'm sorry this is insanity. This in effect is a temporary reprieve for those irresponsible buyers whose loans were backed up by FM&FM originally through government pressure on the banks. To give the appearance to voters that the current administration is "working for them." So forget learning the hard lessons of financial responsibility the government "nanny," will be there to help you. If we do not fix the problem we are only exacerbating it....delaying the inevitable and hurting ourselves, our children and our nation. Do Not Buy What You Can Not Afford...it is that simple.

I have the PDF files for details if you are interested, just email me.

Tea Party Patriots!

Tea Party Patriots, an un-apathetic group, what we need more of!

Dear Friends and Citizens,

I would like to take the opportunity to recognize the Tea Party events and participants of such on Tax day April 15th 2009. Citizens came together across southeast Virginia, the state and the nation to voice their displeasure of government actions in regards to the “stimulus,” packages, bail outs and other runaway spending programs. These displeasures transcended party lines and reached into the hearts of every community. These Tea Parties were not protesting taxation without representation but displeasure and discontent with actions or lack of such by our elected representatives. People feel the government should try to make business climate receptive to the excelling of its citizens and not act as a wealth redistribution center.
Some news networks avoided coverage of these events as they did not fit their agendas or views and some even gave condescending remarks about the idiocy of such events. Certainly each of us is welcome to form our own opinions and my own is that there is nothing more America than voicing your own views publicly or privately without fear of retribution. In this case it was on the performance of our elected officials and as they work for us let’s ensure we hold them accountable. These persons participating in the Tea Parties rose above a problematic consciousness of our society today, apathy. Whether you agree or disagree with their views we all should recognize that becoming less apathetic and more involved, taking responsibility and not shirking it will improve many areas of our lives and nation.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Varnell


This is America and we believe in Free Speech

Professor Wichman E-mail
Claim: A Michigan professor sent an e-mail telling Muslim students to leave the country. Status: True. The story begins at Michigan State University
with a mechanical engineering professor named Indrek Wichman.

Wichman sent an e-mail to the Muslim Student's Association. The e-mail was in response to the students' protest of the Danish cartoons that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a terrorist.
The group had complained the cartoons were 'hate speech'
============
Enter Professor Wichman
In his e-mail, he said the following:
===============================
Dear Moslem Association,
As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest.
I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians,
cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests
(the latest in Turkey), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt , the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called 'whores' in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland,
and the rioting and looting in Paris, France. This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal,
and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceed with your infantile 'protests.' If you do not like the values of the West - see the 1st Amendment - you are free to leave. I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option .Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.
Cordially,
I. S. Wichman
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
As you can imagine, the Muslim group at the university didn't like this too well.
They're demanding that Wichman be reprimanded and the university impose mandatory diversity training for faculty and mandate a seminar on hate and discrimination for all freshmen.
Now the local chapter of CAIR has jumped into the fray . CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, apparently doesn't believe that the good professor had the right to express his opinion. ==========
For its part, the university is standing its ground in support of Professor Wichman,
saying the e-mail was private, and they don't intend to publicly condemn his remarks..

100 days to Socialism

How long will it take for America to become a Socialist Country? Perhaps less than 100 days into the new administration if the Bank stocks the Gov't owns are converted to common shares....read more http://thehill.com/dick-morris/obamas-leap-to-socialism-2009-04-21.html

News of the New Coalition(as per photo to the upper right)

"Well why shouldn't I smile and shake his hand,"....yes and too bad he missed out of teaming with Chamberlain to visit Hitler and achieve "Peace in Our Time." This sends the wrong message to the world about what we as a nation stand for...or is it that I'm backwards and this sends exactly the message the current administration intended?
