The Audacity of Hope, Change, and Lies.

Do you get what is happening in D.C. this week? Other than the massive snow storm, which may very well be God's divine intervention to tell America to slow the heck down, Congress might be well on its way to killing America, once and for all.

Yeah, some of you think that idea is extreme and irresponsible. I know some nay-sayers think that an American Congress cannot possibly be THAT bad. You shrug with a hint of apathy and dismiss my claims as an overreaction and underestimation. I wish I could get those nay-sayers to open your eyes, ears, and minds. It is time to wake up and see where we are heading.

In an unheard of act of desperation and recklessness, Harry Reid is going to force the US Congress to vote on Health Care on CHRISTMAS EVE. The bill on which they are voting will not even be made available to the floor to read until December 23, at the earliest, with Reid holding the final amendments and revisions in his back pocket until the last second. No one knows for sure what will be voted on, specifically, just that Reid and Obama call it health care reform.

Obama ran on creating a new environment in Washington, DC, yet this past year has shown to be full of more of the same partisan, closed meeting, back-room politics that hte Democrats have made careers out of. There is no semblance of the transparency Obama PROMISED throughout his campaign. Not even a smidgen of a hint of a vague essence of a crumb of transparency. Instead, most of what is being voted on has yet to see light of day, and definitely has not been read by the 60 Dems in Congress, the 40 Republicans, and certainly not the public.

As a cab driver the last month, I have driven many doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. The uncertainty of what is REALLY in the bill, as well as what has been said to be in the bill, scares the heck out of EVERY ONE OF THEM. I estimate I have driven 25 medical professionals, maybe more, but no a single person is in support of this idea. Oh, and did I mention, I drive a cab in the CHICAGO metro area? You know, the liberal bastion home of Obama, Blago, and Richard Daley? So, if this is such a sweeping, necessary, positive change for the country and the health care system, why can I not find a single medical professional that likes what is happening in DC? Not one!

Let's break down the logic of what we do know is in the bill.

In 10 years, it is scheduled to be deficit neutral. They have not said it is going to be efficient, lower costs to tax payers, nor have they said what will happen in 11, 12, or 13 years. What they have said is that in 10 years, this plan will be deficit neutral, meaning that in the decade following its approval, the plan itself will not add to the national deficit. OK, that might well be true. But here is the trick. For four years, the program will raise taxes, cut Medicare, cut Medicaid, and raise taxes, and raise taxes. And raise taxes. So, as long as everyone doesn't mind paying 60% federal taxes, and can manage to keep their incomes the same for four years, the program will build a stockpile of cash. THEN...and only then...after four years of saving the money from the increased taxes, something the Democrats are historically TERRIFIC at (see Social Security, Medicare funding...), then we will see the gradual implementation of all the wonderful programs and benefits of the plan.

So, yeah, if no one else loses a high paying job and can afford the weight of the ever increasing taxes forthcoming, and somehow doctors already hurting from the current low reimbursements, only to go lower with this bill, from public aid...yeah, this might be deficit neutral in 10 years. But, what happens when the stockpile of cash runs out? Hmmm?

In addition, the main cry from the left is the lack of people covered currently. This is the #1 reason to completely destroy, I mean reform, health care. Yet, even in 10 years, when all the new bureaucracies are in full force and the plan is completely up and spending, I mean running, there will still be millions not covered. Even the people supporting the bill will admit this point.

Huh? I thought that was the hole point, to cover EVERYONE?

Oh, I know...details, details...

I touched on it earlier, but I do want to go further in-depth on the Medicare cuts.

First of all, Medicare was one of those trust-funds, supposedly put into a lock box for those who have paid into the system, and need assistance in their later years. It was these same type of liberal wackos that took bolt cutters to the lock box, put the funds into the general spending funds, and have put Medicare on the route to bankruptcy in the next 20-30 years. This is only expedited by the fact that liberals willingly give yours and mine tax dollars and Medicare benefits to illegals and immigrants who have not paid a damn dime into the system.

Second, in order to stretch the increasingly depleting funds, Democrats keep cutting Medicare reimbursements over and over again. Remember when George W. Bush got blamed for cutting Medicare? Yeah, that was a budget cut voted on and signed into action by the Clinton administration 2 years prior. Was not Bush, so stop blaming Republicans for killing Grandma. Democrats cut the reimbursement this year, too. Some of you might shrug and dismiss thinking, "Doctors and Hospitals make a killing, so who cares?"

They make a killing off of the insured and the self-payers to compensate for the losses suffered due to public aid payments. Whereas an insured person pays a co-pay and has a deductible to pay when procedures eclipse the coverage, by law Doctors and Hospitals have to eat the costs incurred when the government decides that they only want to pay "X" number of dollars for a procedure. You have to think and understand, nurses, staff, building maintenance, equipment, materials, supplies, malpractice insurance, drugs, needles, and all the other things a Doctor or Hospital need...well, they all cost money. And remember, your average ER or Family Practice Doctor is not nearly as rich as you might think. They do well, but are making somewhere near the upper levels of upper middle class, and not always bringing in $250K and up.

For those of you that don't get it still, the liberals are calling you stupid. They are ignoring the majority and forcing a bill down our collective throats that will only kill jobs, kill people, and kill the economy. It is not about reforming health care to better America, its reforming us to control us. They think we are too stupid to have our own money, so they have to take it because they know better how to spend our money.

If this passes and we sit idly by and let this disaster grab hold, we will have allowed the coming end of freedom, economic independence, political independence, and the United States of America. We are at the edge. This Health Care travesty is a turning point. Either we stop it now and give ourselves a chance to survive, or we let it go through, and watch as America becomes a shell of itself.

If this passes unchecked, we will collapse. We will see another great depression. We will see so much poverty, hunger, illness, and suffering, I have a legitimate fear we could break down into a second civil war. Am I being too extreme? I don't think I am. Perhaps, if Obama had kept his word on ANYTHING, and the Democrats in Congress weren't so secretive, I might have hope this won't be as bad as some fear. However, I have NEVER, in my 28 years, heard of a 2,500 page contract being signed without proper vetting, signed in a hurry, that wasn't a tragic mistake. Have you?

Would you sign a 10-year lease on a vehicle not knowing the costs of the vehicle's maintenance? Not knowing for sure what your payments for the lease will be? Would you gamble your family's future like that? I would hope not.

Health Care Fiasco

First, let me say that I agree 100% that our health care system needs reform and adjustments. There are definitely gaps and problems within the system. However, we have the GREATEST system on Earth, hands down. The well-to-do in countries like England and Canada (you know, the places who already have government-run health care) fly HERE for basic to drastic medical needs. Why?

So, here is my problem with what is going on in DC regarding health care bills. First, the sheer mass of the bills. In the House of Representatives, over 1,800 pages. In the Senate, over 2,000 pages. How in the world, in a matter of a couple of weeks, can anyone in Congress know what in the world they are voting on? There is no way to completely understand the consequences of their actions, yet they forge through without regard for their careers, the American people, and the future of the nation.

One major issue I have with Obama and the Democrats' plan is that they claim the plan will be deficit neutral. How? By cutting billions of dollars in waste in Medicare, Medicaid, and other government-run programs. Really? You need to sign the check to spend that money before you have actually cut the waste? You need to pass a massive spending bill before you will act to cut waste? Why can't the government cut that waste now???

Next, is the issue of abortion. I am not for abortion. At no time. The only time I can see abortion as allowable is if there is a certainty that both the mother and child will die unless the pregnancy is aborted. If there is no other way to save the mother and the baby will not survive no matter what, then I can see the moral argument to abort. However, drive-thru abortions, abortions to cover for an affair or a one-night-stand, teens covering up their own stupidity, and other such birth-control related purposes are nothing short of murder. I believe in Pro-Choice. If you choose to have sex, you choose to live with the moral, ethical, emotional, and physical consequences.

That being said, Harry Reid will not stop until my tax dollars pay for abortions. I absolutely refuse to allow my tax dollars to be used to murder innocent babies. People like Planned Parenthood and their ilk are sick. Abortion is murder. Tax dollars to support this murder is a travesty, and it will be in the bill, despite any claims of an amendment included in the House.

Next, how can the government mandate you purchase an approved insurance program? Where in the US Constitution (you know, the founding document that defines the powers the government, the same document the Democrats routinely ignore and walk all over) does the federal government have the power to force individuals to purchase insurance? Obama promised that if you like your coverage and like your doctor, nothing will change. what defines government approved insurance coverage? Can anyone voting on this massive spending bill tell me that?

After that, no one has answered the question in a straight-forward manner: will the language in the final bill force jail-time for those individuals refusing to purchase insurance? Will there be jail time for business owners who will not/cannot afford to provide the mandated insurance for all employees? Jail for not being able to afford, or choosing not to purchase, insurance...yes or no? Still no answer on that.

Next, and most importantly from an economic standpoint, the forcing of ALL businesses to provide insurance to ALL employees. From the mom and pop store with 3 employees through Wal-Mart, every employee must be covered. Oh, yeah, this will drive down the unemployment rate. I am sure that Joe-Bob and Sally-Sue Jenkins and their Nickel and Dime Pop Shop will be able to pay their employees the ever-increasing minimum wage AND insurance, every employee from the retiree stocking the shelves 15 hours a week to the high school junior studying Chemistry in-between customers at the register. The pop shop will have to purchase insurance for their employees. Not just insurance, but government approved insurance. I am sure Joe-Bob and Sally-Sue can afford to run their business and purchase insurance for all of their employees. Yeah, small businesses won't be hurt at all. Employers can afford this program without cutting jobs, oh yeah.

This health care fiasco does nothing to lower costs, the deficit, or cover everyone as promised. It is just a massive power-grab and spending bill. The issues of sky-rocketing malpractice insurance, the frivolous lawsuits, and other wasteful and cost-driving issues are no where to be found on the agenda. REAL reform is ignored, and in its stead is a bunch of gobbledy-gook and spending.

So, for the people than bankrupted Medicare and Social Security, partially because they opened the check books for illegal immigrants that never paid into the system, they are about to take over 20% of the nation's economy. I am sure they won't screw THIS one up...

Sequels Are ALWAYS Better

Cue movie voice-over guy:

In a world where Congressional Districts the do not exist get millions in government spending...where $42,000 can save 5,700 jobs...where despite losing 3,000,000 jobs, we have still saved over 4,000,000 jobs...where facts, common sense, and real math take a backseat to spin and man lead a group of Senators and an entire nation to economic oblivion. Coming Spring 2010, to a government near you...from the makers of Omnibus, TARP, Cap and Tax, and Health System destruction...starring Barack Hussein Obama, mmm mmm mmm; Nancy "Crazy Eyes" Pelosi; Dingy Harry Reid; and introducing Senator Al is STIMULUS II...The End of The American Dollar.

Ed Freeman

Received in an email forward that is going around now:
You're a 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley.
November 11, 1965.
LZ X-ray , Vietnam
Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the Medi-Vac helicopters to stop coming in.
You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again.
As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then - over the machine gun noise - you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.
You look up to see an unarmed Huey. But ... it doesn't seem real because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you.

He's not Medi-Vac so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway. Even after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come, he's coming anyway.

And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board. Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses.

And, he kept coming back! He made 13 more trips!!

He took about 30 of you and your buddies out who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman, died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise, Idaho.

This email will claim that some celeb event covered up Ed Freeman's death in the media coverage. While this might have been true, we should get the date correct. Ed Freeman passed away in August 2008.

He died in August 2008, not around the same time as Chris Brown beating up Rhianna, nor around the same time that Michael Jackson died. He died at the ripe old age of 80. So, just to be clear, while I am sure in 2008, the media did not give this hero his due, there is no conspiracy or pop-icon overshadowing this event.

That being said, we need to address something about Ed Freeman.

Why did this man have to wait until 2001, to be awarded his Medal of Honor? Why am I only now, in a misleading email, learning about this man?

The tragedy is not that the media mismanaged their coverage of Freeman's death to cover some event in pop culture, the tragedy is that this man was a living Medal of Honor winner, and so few people knew about him.

In the midst of a tragic war fought half-heartedly by a hemming and hawing, indecisive President (sound familiar?), here was a man, ignoring danger and near-certain death to do what was right. Unlike so many of us here at home, he refused to abandon and leave behind our soldiers fighting and dying in Vietnam.

So many Americans, many of whom are sitting in Congress and even the White House now, abandoned, in spirit, word, or deed, our troops while in the midst of battle, both then and now. On November 14, 1965, Ed Freeman refused to leave our men behind, and he took action.

From 1965 until 2001, Freeman's 14 separate flights into the heavy firefight went virtually unnoticed and unheralded. He did not mind. Like so many of our soldiers not named John Kerry, he took great pride in his work in the military, and saw his heroism as nothing more than simply doing the right thing. Heroism on the battlefield to him was not something to brag about, to celebrate, or to be rewarded for; it was his duty.

Ed Freeman is a hero. The tragedy is that today, November 16, 2009, is the first time I have learned of his story. Ed Freeman is one of countless stories of heroism that go unnoticed and unappreciated by so many people in this country. It his very sacrifice, and the sacrifice of countless others, that provide the very freedoms that allow those to sit ungrateful and full of apathy.

So, today, when you bow your head to pray for your needs, wants, and desires, take a moment to thank God for men like Ed Freeman. Thank God for men and women who put their lives on the line to do what is right; to risk their lives for the lives of others. Thank God that you are a free person and able to pray without government persecution.

Ed Freeman is a hero. Please remember him and the thousands of other heroes that have protected us from foreign enemies.

Things That Are Annoying Me

While I usually aim for a targeted rant, the following will be a list of random, various issues that are particularly annoying or upsetting to me. Read, enjoy, and feel free to comment.

1) Everytime I watch one of those anti-cruelty ads on TV, whether it is Sarah McGlaughlin or anyone else, my heart hurts. Any human that does to animals what they show in those ads is a sick, sad, evil person. Yes, even Michael Vick, whose return to the NFL I supported only because he paid a hefty price and deserves a second chance at life. The fact still remains that he either is, or used to be, very sick and heartless. Anyone who is cruel to animals and causes the scars and injuries that these commercials show is someone that deserves prison time. It literally makes me fighting mad.

2) I think that we are far too understanding or forgiving to people that hurt children. Child molesters and child rapists are sick, twisted scum. Anyone that hurts a child is the lowest life form on Earth. As a Christian, I struggle with these types of people because I want to rid the world of their presence. Anyone that rapes or molests a child has no useful purpose on this planet. Their life is worthless. Yet there are those that are so worried about the molester's rights and treatment and forgiveness. There are just some things that are not forgivable. Hurting a child through rape or molestation is one of those unforgivable sins. Carl Lee Hailey is a hero.

3) I am so tired of minorities crying race everytime things do not get their way. I can't criticize President Obama without someone thinking I am a bigot and do not like him because he is black. I cannot speak out against illegal immigrants without being thought of as prejudice against Latinos. I am tired of every business having to kiss minority butt to avoid being called racist. Yes, I know racism exists. I know that some people hate people for no other reason that the color of their skin or their last name. However, asking the government to interveve on your behalf every time things do not go your way only further handicaps you and your people. If you work hard in school, work hard at your job, and become someone with valuable talents and experiences, you will get to wherever you want to go. But, if you are lazy and want everything handed to you because of things that happened 100 years ago, get the heck out of the way and stop your crying. Martin Luther King, Jr., wanted blacks to EARN the right to get what white people have, and not be given everything simply because life ain't fair. Dr. King would be disgusted with the plight of blacks today because blacks defeat themselves more than any racist boss could.

4) I am tired of the thought that the rich should pay for EVERYTHING. Tax the health care. Tax the roads. Tax the a water fountain in an unused park and name it after a Congressman or Congresswoman. There are just some things that people need to work for and buy themselves. The more you tax the rich, the less they buy and the less they hire. I have never gotten a job from a poor person. Poor people cannot put other people to work.

Let's say you have a mouse problem. You get a cat. Can you teach a cat to hunt mice if you trap and bring the dead mice to the cat? No. The cat will stop worrying about hunting because you take away the drive. Same applies to giving everything away to the poor. If you GIVE them everything they want and need, the desire to go get it is dissolved. The rich should not pay for everything. The poor sometimes needs to get off their laurels and go EARN it.

5) President Obama selects a general to head the war in Afghanistan. In the middle of the summer, Obama's appointed general tells Obama what he needs to win the war in Afghanistan. You know, the war that Obama supported winning throughout the campaign? So, here was are, four months later, Obama is bowing in Communist China and taking softball questions from hand-picked Communist Chinese students, and bowing to the Premier of Japan, and still no decision on whether Obama wants to win the war or not. Sometimes, when there is a life or death decision to be made, not making a decision is a decision. So, by not deciding, Obama is deciding to lose the war in Afghanistan. Thus, we have dropping troop morale in that war. So, Obama, thank you for your undying support of our military.

6) I am so tired of these bleeding heart morons who cry about free health care. Well, let me say this. You will get what you pay for. If you look at Medicare and Medicaid, as well as the VA medical system, they are all riddled with failures in service, fraud, unpaid doctors, and the government making decisions on life and death procedures and care. There are options for emergency care. If you break your leg, you will get treated. If you have cancer, there are organizations out there to help you. If the only place you can get insurance is a job you aren't happy at, well tough. Why do I have to suffer because you want me to buy your health care instead of you sucking it up and being a responsible adult? The government cannot handle ANYTHING efficiently. So, why am I going to have to deal with beauracratic nightmares so that you can have government insurance?


7) The Ft. Hood massacre was the work of one man...and he is something no one outside of Fox News Channel will say. Everyone is so afraid of saying the truth, it is sickening, sad, and dangerous. Malik Nadal Hasan is a MUSLIM EXTREMIST TERRORIST. He is all three. 1) MUSLIM. 2) EXTREMIST. 3) TERRORIST. He is not Christian, we know that because if a Christian killed someone, that is the first word of every paragraph of every report. Someone "thought" the man who killed an abortion doctor was a Christian right-wing extremist, and that is how he was labled. A Chrisitan right-wing extremist. Yet, they refuse to name the guy that kills 13 American soldier and wounds 31 more. They softly read his name, hoping that by not annunciating it, even coughing as they say it, they can avoid identifying him as a MUSLIM EXTREMIST. "*COUGH*Malik Nadal Hasan *COUGH* is the alleged shooter in the Ft. Hood massacre. He might have ties to some groups against America's war on Islam."


Just like Abdulhakim Muhammad, who shot and killed a US Army soldier at a recruiting station in Arkansas in June 2009, is a MUSLIM EXTREMIST.

I am so tired of the silence of the peace-loving Muslim community, much like I am so tired of the media covering up the religion and extremism of remorseless killers like Hasan and Muhammad. The fact that there isn't a more vocal anti-terrorism and anti-murderous faction of the Muslim community starts to make one wonder...maybe this whole religion of peace thing is just false advertising...

8) Trying the 9-11 terrorists in US Courts is a political sham. It is heartless. It is stupid. It will make a mockery of the CIA, Homeland Security, the US Military, and the Bush Administration. All reasons why the Obama Administration is so in support of the idea. Any time that they can take a shot at the CIA, the military, or Bush, you better believe that shot will be taken. It scares me to think what a liberal judge is going to do with this case. Are the confessions going to be thrown out because of a lack of Miranda Rights? Are these murderous terrorists going to be allowed media time to spew their hatred and filth? Are these murderous scum going to have access to all of the rights of the US Constitution, the very document they were trying to destroy with their attacks on the US?

This whole show is a sham and political ploy to unearth classified documents and information for public view. Part of that public includes international courts, who could, and likely would, use that information to indict the Bush administration. Something Obama knows would be politically dangerous to do on his own. However, if he uses the US Civilian Courts to open up the classified documents, the international courts have all the ammo they need to twist and attack Bush.

9) I am so tired of every liberal fool blaming Bush for everything that is wrong. Obama has NO ACCOUNTABILITY with these people. Bush supporters give Bush credit for the rights AND the wrongs his administration were responsible for. Obama does nothing wrong. If something doesn't work, it is because Bush screwed things up worse than we thought.

So, passing a stimulus on the promise of a peaking unemployment rate in early summer fails. It is because Bush messed up the economy worse than Obama thought. Hmmm...okay. Let's give you that. So, that means Obama is responsible for rushing to throw good money after bad in haste when he took office? No. Obama does not get blamed for acting without proper planning. He doesn't get blame for not properly assessing the situation before passing nearly $2,000,000,000,000 in spending in less than a month. Obama gets no blame from his side.

I am tired of the sheeple that walk behind Obama no matter what, no questions asked. These sheeple will walk straight off a cliff...and take a large portion of the country and world with them.

Ok, I feel better. My 10 rants are out. I will go to bed now.

Friday, September 11, 2009


Going to work and sitting at your desk, upset the boss just passed you up for a promotion. You're gonna have to stay late today and miss your daughter's dance recital. Suddenly, you are thrown five city blocks in the air. You never knew what hit you.

Sitting in your office and you are in complete disbelief. You cannot leave your building. The skyscraper you are in is on fire. The building is shaking. Word you are getting is that the stairs and elevators are all blocked with fired and debris. The heat is building. There is no escape. There will be no rescue. Do you wait to die? Or do you jump. You see others pass your window. You ask God's forgiveness as you take control of the one thing left in your power.

Storming to your cubicle. You had just had a major fight with your husband. You both said some mean, hurtful things. You sit in your ergonomic chair and silently, deep in your mind and soul, you take minor comfort knowing that you guys will be able to kiss and make up at 5:30 tonight at dinner. A flash of light and glass, your life is over.

Running the halls of the Pentagon to an important meeting. Something is developing in New York City that is going to have a drastic impact on National Security. You stumble on the loose corner of a rug, you curse the rug, look up as the wall to your right crushes your body. The last thing you smell is burning wood and scorched concrete.

Waking up, trying to regain your bearings. A second ago, you were at the watercooler talking about the new college football season. You think Florida State is going to make a run at it, but your buddy said his money was on USC. Now, the room is dark. Your buddy isn't anywhere in sight. You realize people are beating you with coats and pillows. You then realize the pain coming from your back and arms. You are covered in flaming jet fuel. You scream in pain before you fall into shock, then die.

Responding to the mass confusion of two planes flying into the World Trade Center. There are no elevators. No word on the conditions of the stairwells. All you want to do is get to the fires and help the people. You grab your 80 pounds of gear and climb the 80 flights of stairs...1 grueling flight per minute. You hear another series of explosions. Has another plane hit?! You never hear the answer as the floor above you lands on your skull.

Trying to organize batallions and companies of firefighters from the ground. These men are your responsibility. You send them up the towering inferno. The first tower collapses, you dive into a stairwell. When the dust starts to clear, a man who is a friend and the chaplain to the entire fire department lies next to you, dead.

Sitting on a flight to the west coast. Suddenly, men have taken over the plane. They have killed one person with a boxcutter. They have taken the cockpit and are now flying the plane to a new destination, or, more appropriately, target. You and others get in contact with people on the ground. This plane, appearantly, is the fourth in a targeted attack on America and innocent civilians. You don't know of the horrors of people burning alive in the Twin Towers...You only know what the inevitable has now become, and what you must do about it. You follow the lead of four men, one of whom yells, "Let's Roll." A short fight occurs in the cockpit. The plane loses control, turns over, and crashes into the ground. You knew going into the cockpit, these murderous scum had already determined that you and everyone else was going to die. So, you and the others aboard determined the how and when and took back some control.

That you had been in the Twin Towers or the Pentagon or Flight 93. That your life was taken by murderous, evil scum of the Earth that took part in killing 3000+ innocent civilians. Imagine that you were taken in an instant, without chance to say sorry for your wrongs, to make up for the mistakes you made with loved ones, or to just meet your life's potential. Imagine, even worse, you suffered and died in the fires and smoke in the aftermath of the plane crashes. You felt your flesh melt under the heat of the jet fuel. Imagine the pain and shock of knowing you were going to die and there was nothing you could do. Imagine the horrors of 9/11/01, and you were destined to become one of the many faces on the memorial walls dedicated to the victims of the attacks.


Now, Imagine...
A large, loud-mouth portion of the country takes your death and uses it for political gain. They accuse the President of knowing and covering up the fact that the US Government knew, and quite possibly took part in, the acts that killed you.

An entire political party wants to give the same people that helped planned the attacks access to US Courts and the US Constitution. From the new President through both houses of Congress, there are those that want to offer full rights and privileges to the same group of people who trained to kill you. That the new President wants to move the terrorist scum from an off-shore military base to on-shore, US federal prisons, with full access to legal representation, full Miranda Rights, and full Constitutional protection.

The new President and his party attacking and distracting the efforts of intelligence agencies on a daily basis. That party uses the newspapers to discredit and attack these intelligence agencies for scaring or causing discomfort to people that have information that could be used to save more people from your fate.

A President and his party requiring US Soldiers to hesitate everytime they arrest or even engage with an enemy. Instead of trying to protect themselves from dying on the battlefield, they have to worry about what a Democratic senator will say about them if they kill an enemy. They have to worry about some politician calling for a full trial if you kill someone who poses a threat. They have to offer Miranda Rights to terrorists they capture on the battlefield.

The new President refusing to call the groups that are responsible for your death "terrorists." And he doesn't call it a "war on terror," but some sort of contingency plan. The new President apologizes to unfriendly nations for how America defended itself.

Eight years after your death, your death is memorialized by the new President as a call to community service. Instead of calling for a restrengthening of our pursuit of Bin Laden and al Qeada and preventing more terrorist attacks on US soil, the President says America should go out and pick up litter on the highway or other such community service. He in effect dismisses your sacrifice and your murder by saying 9-11 is a day of service.

You are looking down on the current administration and the party in power. Are you feeling forgotten? Are you feeling disgraced? Do you think you and the 3000 other men, women, and children who died on 9-11-01 are being memorialized appropriately and with respect?

Remembering 9/11 Eight Years Later...

There are still empty chairs at the breakfast and dinner tables.

There is still a gaping hole in Manhattan, and in so many hearts and souls in America.

We are still healing.

In our healing, we have become divided. We have let the power-hungry manipulate us into buying their snake oils and their magic youth formulas. We have let the government group us into small categories and let the opposing side rip us to shreds for our beliefs.

We are a divided nation. The more divided we become, the more hatred and vitriol we share for our own people, the more the murderous bastards have won. They are winning the psychological battle against America because we let politics and personal agendas take over. We let them win because we refused to tell the people we elected to, "Shut the hell up!," and kick them out of office. We let our own government divide us.

On September 11, 2001, we stood in shock. On September 12, 2001, we got down on our knees as a nation and asked God for the strength and wisdom to deliver justice. That same day, we, as a nation, got off our knees, dusted ourselves off, and got to work. We united as a country to do everything we could to prevent this attack from repeating itself. We were the UNITED States of America, a nation determined to right the wrongs of the immoral attacks inflicted on innocent civilians.

For six weeks, Old Glory flew high on every home, on every street, in every city, town, or suburb in America. We weren't straight or gay, black or white, rich or poor, left or right...We were AMERICANS. For six weeks we were the greatest nation on Earth, full of angry, hurt, and fortified Americans. For those six weeks, the terrorists had lost the psychological battle though they had won the physical battle at that point.

Here we are, eight years later. Gaping holes still within the hearts of so many people who lost so much in 100 minutes on a gorgeous September Tuesday morning. The hole in Manhattan is still open, like a nagging injury that still hasn't healed. And there is a gaping hole in the hearts, minds, and souls of Americans.

For six weeks, we were unified, together, and we were brothers with one creed and one loyalty. What happened? Why did we stop caring about the nation and the future? Why did we decide that our needs here and now were most important?

Now, we are 600 million strangers with our own agendas. We let the mouthpieces in Washington divide us on a daily basis. It is a sad way to pay tribute to the people on Flight 93, the men and women in the Twin Towers and The Pentagon, and the brave firefighters and police officers who perished on that terrible morning. We have disgraced them. Their sacrifice has gone in vain...

But it doesn't have to be that way.

If you will take a pledge to read the US Constitution, then read the Declaration of Independence, then read Thomas Paine's Common Sense, and then look with pride at the red, white, and blue American flag, and then look at the people on your left and your right, and look at them as your brothers and sisters in the struggle of being American...if you will do all those things, then remember how you felt on 9/11/01 at around 11am, then we will be better off. If we will remember what it is that makes America great, and remember that despite her faults, America IS a great nation, we can turn it around.

America IS a great nation. If you don't believe that, France is wide open. Buy a one-way ticket. Enjoy the riots. It is time we started remembering that we are in a great nation. We are free people. We need to appreciate the freedoms we have, and, more importantly, remember and thank the people who protect those freedoms and rights. It is time to cut out the petty garbage and grow the hell up. It is time to appreciate what we have.

Today, on 9-11-09, it is time to remember. Remember everything. Remember Todd Beamer. Remember the firemen who ran up the stairwells of the Twin Towers, but never came out. Remember the empty chairs that so many families will witness at dinner tonight. Remember what America stands for and forget the garbage and politics. There is one thing we can do to honor the men and women who suffered and died on 9-11. We must re-unite and become a strong nation. Stop pointing fingers and stop blaming Bush or Obama or whomever. Do your part.

Honor and remember the freedom fighters who died eight years ago today. Let's unite as Americans PERMANENTLY.

Ah, I Get it Now...The REAL 1st Amendment

Amendment I:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

See, it is there, plain as day. The First Amendment, the first clause of the Bill of Rights. The language of those days was unclear. We, on the conservative side, take the words as they appear on the document. How foolish! We need to take off the blinders and see what the Constitution REALLY says.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
We conservatives have believed that freedom of religion at face value. Now, though, I have seen the light! What it REALLY says, is that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, but the courts at the behest of special interests may rule against the free exercise thereof, especially if the religion in question preaches love, morals, forgiveness, and redemption. People are free to practice archaic religions like Christianity and Judaism, as long as no one is around to see it. Islam, Scientology, Voodoo, Buddism, and atheism are all protected and must be respected in all areas, public and private. It would be racist and prejudice to restrict these religions from being practiced in public forums." All this time, I never knew that the freedom of religion was so specific! My eyes are finally open. Those darn Christians with their oppressive messages and indoctrinations by offering a simple blessing of food! I am so glad the Constitution clearly lays out the restriction of such practices so we can put these ruthless people in jail!

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech."
Of course, this protects people burning Bibles, the American flag, George W. Bush and other conservatives in effigy, and other peaceful and constructive manners of protest. It also protects perverts like Larry Flynt to promote the degradation of women and positive ideals of immorality and indecency. However, this freedom of speech does not give Americans the right to speak against a democrat administration. It does not give Americans the right to disagree with democrats in congress. It does not give Americans the right to speak against a health care plan that no one knows the full details about. Why, speaking against democrats is divisive and dangerous. Speaking against the health care bill is immoral and fear mongering. People who speak against people like Obama are racists and evil people who need to be stopped. Those type of people must be stopped and must be reported to! "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, but the courts and the media can attack, discredit, and scrounge your personal life for dirt and embarrassing fact, or even rumors, or even flat out lies, to destroy you should you question, oppose, or try to debate any liberal government official, member of Congress, or member of the democrat administration."

"Congress shall make no law...abridging...the freedom of the press."
Here again, when you have the dangerous voice of opposition, such as a more central leaning network like Fox News Network, that legitimately offers both sides of each story, they must be destroyed. Again, Congress does not have to do the dirty work. The President of the United States will attack the network and its anchors himself. Other parties in the world of media. Papers of record like the New York Times and legendary broadcast networks like NBC and their spin-off cable networks team up to attack any dissenting opinion or spin in the world of media. Congress, however, has listened to and seriously contemplated the "Fairness Doctrine," but only for the conservative wasteland of talk radio. The government, already known for its lack of bias and ability to be completely, blindly fair, will decide, under the fairness doctrine, whether a radio broadcast is giving equal time to all sides of an issue. The fairness doctrine will ignore the broadcast networks like NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and Comedy Central, and rightfully so! "Congress shall make no law...abridging...the freedom of press, unless it congress sees a need to mute voices of dangerous opposition."

"Congress shall make no law...abridging...the right of the people to peaceably assemble."
Exactly! Look at the peaceful, constructive, spontaneous assemblies of groups like ACORN, SEIU, Planned Parenthood, unions, and other liberal groups. If a conservative happens to get in the way and oppose their views, a courteous curb stomping is in order and perfectly leagal because guns were not involved, thus keeping it peaceable. Now, conservatives, on the other hand, are fear-mongers and wear Brooks Brothers clothing to violently assemble. Why, their hand-written signs scare 11-year-old girls on their way to see President Obama speak! Hand-written signs at a conservative demonstration are more dangerous than all the guns in the world! That poor 11-year-old girl with her pre-written question that was chosen at random, who just so happened to be the daughter of that state's leader of the Obama '08 campaign (What an amazing coincidence!), had to see people with mean signs. The HUMANITY! While Congress has made no law to restrict the dangerous conservative assemblies, but the peaceful, thoughtful liberals have taken things in their own hands. It's okay to peacefully jump a voice of opposition. It's within constitutional protections to throw a pie in the face of a conservative speaker. It's okay to peacefully threaten bank operators who do not want to play by liberal rules. It's okay for liberals like Bill Ayers to bomb US properties and be a part of a group that torched the home of an NYC police officer. They were all peaceful assemblies protecting liberal ideals, which, of course, are the only safe, peaceful ideals that America can survive with.

"Congress shall make no law...abridging...the right of the petition the government for a redress of grievances."
The ACLU and other liberal interest groups, most all funded by George Soros, have proven this freedom is alive and well. However, because of the obstructionism of the conservative right, these poor groups cannot go through congress to make the changes they want happen. Instead, they petition the courts to enact legislative change. Whenever there is a grievance, liberals know that consrvatives will prevent the grievance from being addressed legislatively. So, they sue. Sue again. Sue again and again and again until they reach the liberal bastian of the US Supreme Court. Liberal also use the media to petition the government for a redress of their greivances when there is a Republican in the White House. The media petitions, through their journalistic ways, a Republican President, putting him on trial for everything that liberals deem wrong. However, this right is not granted conservatives. Again, conservatism is dangerous, divisive, insensitive, and just plain mean. Conservatives have no right to question their senators or president on such petty issues as why our nation is spending money that isn't printed yet, why we are entering the largest debt in the history of the planet, why bills are being pushed through so fast that the last pages are smeared because the ink isn't dry, and why the president is appointing czars left and right to positions of unchecked power. How dare conservatives question a man of such unflappable integrity! "Congress shall make no law...abridging...the right of the petition the government for a redress of grievances, except when the liberal movement is in power, because they are all nice people who want to provide everything the government can to the people who they tell are too weak to get it on their own. This right is restricted from conservatives who will use it to divide the country and attack the people in power that we all should trust and take at their word, no matter what."

See? Now that I have explained the REAL first amendment, doesn't it make sense? Don't you see that Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the liberal left are only using the US Constitution to help? Thank God for Obama and the left!

Lions for Lambs, Defiance, and a look back/forward at Red Dawn

Today, I spent most of my day off work watching some movies.

I watched my Netflix delivery of "Lions for Lambs," starring Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, and a really good cast. I also viewed "Defiance," starring the current "James Bond," Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber, who you might know as "Sabretooth," in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Watchin both movies, with my current events/political radar going as it always is, I came to some interesting ideas and conclusions.

First, in "Lions for Lambs," I do want to congratulate and thank director Robert Redford for doing America a favor, and for doing the right thing. For once, finally, the American soldiers were NOT the bad guys. Much to the dismay of people like Senators John Kerry, Dick Durbin, John Murtha, and Ted [hic] Kennedy, our soldiers were portrayed as honorable, intelligent, brave, decent men. They were not shown as ruthless killers and pillagers, much as the descriptions our 'distinguished' senators have described. So, in all earnest, thank you, Mr. Redford, for not making a mockery of our soldiers like so many other Hollywood movies tend to do.

The movie tended to drag on with a lot of conversation. There were brief stints of military action and a few explosions and f-bombs to wake up the dozing, but overall the movie was a bust. I give Redford credit for seemingly trying to represent all the arguments involving the current War on Terror, including the legendary media personality who really cannot say that they want America to win the war, and is too timid to vocalize the fact they might actually support an American defeat. I really do not recommend the film, however, as it is more of a lecture that accomplishes nothing but offering the sad ending of two of America's bravest dying together on a frozen Afghan mountaintop.

Now, the movie I did enjoy today.

"Defiance," another in the recent trend over the past decade of Holocaust-related movies. The story is very good and very heart wrenching at times. It is based on actual events in Nazi-controlled Poland. The four Bielski brothers lead a group of Jewish refugees to avoid the Nazis and those working for SS. Despite the constant stream of WWII era films, this new story shows how a band of refugees refused to live like the animals the Nazis treated them as, and they tried to live as a free people. The title of the movie, as well as the book from which the film is based, was taken from the group's philosophy of living in defiance of Hitler.

Recently, I heard there is a new film in the works that will be a re-make of the 1980's classic, "Red Dawn." I am interested to see if the movie will be updated to where the American "Wolverines," who fought off the Cubans and Russians when they invaded the United States, fight a similar foe. Depending on the director's backbone, I would like to speculate that the remake will possibly be based in a post-9/11 world with post-9/11 combatants, but Hollywood shudders to acknowledge that the people who hate us and want to kill us just happen to be Arab Muslims. So that remains to be seen. Release date is set for September of 2010, so it will be very interesting if the movie contains Bin Laden associates or not, given the proximity of the date to a very painful date.

However, getting back to point. What is it?, you might ask. "Lions for Lambs" has no bearing on the rest of this blog, I just felt it necessary to point out and appreciate the rare movie that does not put our troops in extremely poor light. The point I am working toward is this. How would the American press, who, by and large, excitedly report any bad news involving the war on terror and the casualties our troops suffer, report the members of the Bielski group, or the Wolverines, today?

Picture Chris Matthews, who readily admitted on national television that Barack Obama gives him tingly feelings up and down his legs, or Keith Olbermann, or Katie Couric, or any of a million other television personalities, I mean TV 'journalists', reporting on the activites of the Bielskis or the Wolverines.

Picture it. Would it be fair? Would it be supportive? I know the answer. The Bielskis and the Wolverines would be portrayed as the problems, the instigators. The Nazis or the Cubans would be put on a pedestal and martyred in the media. The Bielskis and the Wolverines would be openly called terrorists. Media outlets would openly attack any credibility and publicly air all dirty laundry that any person associated with the groups would have. Bloggers for prominent publications would make inferences and outright accusations of indecency and immoral behavior amongst the two gender-mixed groups. They would be talked about as though they were the filth of the Earth. Stories of respect and memoriam would run to honor the fallen Nazi or Cuban/Russian soldiers killed by the groups, meanwhile the casualties suffered by the Bielskis or Wolverines would be talked with an air of "serves 'em right."

Democratic Senators would go on every 'news' show and talk to every print 'journalist' to decry the "antagonistic antics" of the Bielskis or the Wolverines. Those same senators, along with many in the left wing media, would plead with these people to surrender so that peace talks could begin.

Tell me I am wrong. Go ahead. But, before you do, remember this: I am talking about the same senators and media that scowl at Israel for trying to defend itself from Iranian or Palestinian annihilation. These are the same people that find every chance they can to degrade and insult our men and women in the Armed Forces. You think they would do anything less to a group of innocent people defending themselves in the same situations the Bielskis or the Wolverines faced?

With the constant "Let's talk because I am sorry," foreign policy of Barack Obama, Red Dawn could very well become a story based on actual events. How will we treat those fighting when America's ever growing weakness is exploited and the fight is brought home? Will we duck our heads in the sand and ignore it? Will we cower and kowtow to the guns and threats? Or would we fight, and actually put ourselves on the line for others?

Can YOU say it? Moreover...can you MEAN it?

I love America.

I love my country and am proud to be a citizen of this land.

I am proud to be an American.

Now, you say it.

Can you say it? Do you mean it?

Since the 1770's, we have been in a constant struggle to maintain freedom and our Independence. Countless men, women, and children have fought, suffered, and died in the name of freedom.

From the warriors that dug in their heels to push back Cornwallis into the awaiting cannons of the French, to the men and women who gave so much to get our country going in the two World Wars, to the men and women who were attacked and literally spit upon by fellow citizens during the Vietnam conflict, to the men, women and children who died on the battlefields as terrorists took a war ignored for 8 years to an unreal escalation, to the men and women fighting and dying in Afghanistan and Iraq, far too many to name have made sure we can speak freely and not fear a tyrannical government punishing us for our thoughts and beliefs.

American heroes that preserve our freedom are constantly overlooked or, even worse and far more tragic, insulted, berated, spit upon, and called terrorists themselves, sometimes by the same lawmakers that sent them to the conflict for which they are being attacked for going. Then there are these non-Christian groups portraying themselves and God-like Christians, but show no indicative signs of being God-like, who picket, protest, and spew hate and insults towards the men and women lying in flag-draped caskets, as well as their families, saying such 'Christ-like' platitudes like "God hates you!" and "God killed you for a reason!" and "God despises America." (To anyone that knows God, this completely discredits their movement because God, according to what we read and believe in the Bible, does not hate His children, EVER.)

During this extended weekend, in between the fun and the beer and the ribs and burgers; between the cursing the long wait in traffic as you travel this weekend; in between the dodging of certain people you are trying to avoid at your parties; in between the regular rigmarole, take one minute...take just 30 seconds...and say, "I love America. I am proud to be an American."

Try to mean it. Yeah, America is not perfect. Anything created, run and operated by humans will never be perfect. However, America is a truly great nation. Be thankful that you are able to enjoy the freedoms so many have died to ensure for you.

Thank a soldier. Thank a cop. Thank a fire fighter. And, most importantly, thank God.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA

Fed Up With "Change"

For over a year, during his coronation to the White House, Barack Obama was bulletproof and covered in military-grade Teflon. Nothing hurt him and nothing stuck to him.

He is friends with a white domestic terrorist. It was racist to question that alliance, despite the fact that this terrorist wishes more US buildings (like the family home of a NYC cop) had gone up in smoke. Obama and he worked together on several different community boards. Obama was introduced as the successor to his eventually seat in the State senate in the living room of this terrorist.

No one cared. He talked really well.

His pastor of over 20 years, the man who baptised Obama's children, is a blatant racist and consistently speaks against America. This pastor even sells copies of his Anti-American rants in the very lobby of the church Obama attended for two decades. I think this is a valid concern. I don't want a President that hates America, or even condones a man of faith speaking so hostility toward my nation.

Yet, I am accused of being a racist for asking questions. Obama is the chosen one, how dare I question him!

Obama has close business ties to a convicted criminal now serving jail time. No one cares about this allegiance. I am so full of hate to ask about criminal connections to my President. The nerve it takes for me to doubt the savior of our times.

So, fine, Obama gets elected despite more than half of the living American voting public disagrees with him on everything. (He did get the unanimous dead vote...not to mention 300% of the homeless vote, 115% of the cartoon/Disney/Muppet vote, and the fact that Archie Bunker, Forrest Gump, Frank Sinatra, Jean-Luc Piccard, James T. Kirk, Garth Algar, and Wayne Campbell all voted enthusiastically for Obama, thanks to ACORN's voter registration techniques.)

Within his first two weeks in office, he crams down our throats two unprecedented spending bills, neither of which were read by anyone who was pressured to vote for them. He spent $2 Trillion in 2 weeks without batting an eye. The explanation was we needed stimulation or else we could see 9% or higher unemployment WITHOUT the emergency spending.

The bills passed. And, Obama was right. The massive spending did prevent a 9% unemployment rate. In fact, we are doing so much over and above that prediction. We are well on our way to double digits! And, the "emergency" money won't even be spent for another 18 months.

Let me explain this. You're house is on fire. I tell you that you HAVE to buy this really pricey insurance policy so that I can put out the fire. You HAVE TO buy this expensive fire extinguisher with the plan. You sign. Its an emergency! You give me the blank check. Now, its time to put out the fire! Right? No, not with the Obama administration. I promised to put out the fire, but the fire gets worse. I have the fire extinguishers on order. They were cheaper if I waited a few months. Your house is engulfed in flames, exactly what I promised the insurance policy you just signed without reading would prevent. I tell you that you owe more money to build a water slide in a different state. There are water fountains in California that need new filters. All coming out of your bank account. Your house is in ashes. The government comes and tells you, "Oh, we are so sorry. President Bush set the fire and we just cannot contain it. But hey, this is change you can believe in. Sign this contract to spend another $100K from your account. No no no, there is no time to read it. Oh, and expect your power bills to skyrocket. It is necessary. Oops! I almost forgot. Here is a fine from the EPA. Your house fire caused so much carbon dioxide to be put in the air, you need to pay this fine. Or call Al Gore and buy some of his trees."

That, pretty much, is what is happening. We are being financially raped by Obama. And despite the fact that we have hit the iceberg, the ship is taking on unbelievable amounts of water, and people are jumping overboard, there are still dumb sheep, being led to slaughter, who still support this guy.

All of the Right's worst fears are coming true. Obama owns the auto industry, the banking industry, and is squeezing out the heartbeat of the American economy, small business. Small businesses don't have Unions, and as such, don't contribute to Democrat party coffers, so they can all die slowly. Obama owns the banks, and the banks are refusing to prop up small businesses. He has his sights set firmly on the health care industry. He will destroy it, too.

Obama is destroying America. He is pulling the plug of the life-support machine on the American economy. He is killing our freedom day by day. And there are a lot of Americans that think they are okay with that.

If we don't wake up and realize what is happening, and do something about it in 2010, we could very well be doomed to complete collapse and a complete failure of America. We will be a third world country like North Korea. The upper class Democrats will suppress freedom, liberty, and all the genuinely American ideals to keep in power. You see what is going on in Iran? If we stay complacent and ignore what the government is doing to us, we will someday, within the next generation, face the same fate.

Please, wake up. Please do not let freedom and America die.

Edison, Bell, Ford, and other great American Inventors

Thomas Edison gave us the incandecent light bulb. It took him thousands of attempts and countless hours of work. Not to mention the unending frustration for each passing failure.

Alexander Graham Bell's telephone continues to revolutionize the world's communication systems. His simple call to Mr. Watson all those years ago spawned, for better or for worse, the unending, infinite conversations through voice, text, and data that we are enjoying today.

Henry Ford's assembly line production made automobiles a reality for every American, and billions of people around the world. This simple yet ingenius innovation is the kind of intelligent thought that has allowed growth and prosperity in America.

You know what the most amazing fact about these men is? They all share a common thread, other than being American legends.

All of their work, research, trial and errors, and the unending supply of materials they required came from one source.

With everything needed to create a new product such as the lightbulb or the phone or assembly line production, these men, and so many more of the innovations in America that we enjoy today, so many of those have occurred with the work and dedication of special people.

None of whom needed to be subsidized by the federal government, nor did they need to be mandated by over-reaching legislation to make these advancements.

Bill Gates did not need government to reach in and tell him to make the PC easy to use for everyone.

Doctors who have created life-saving technologies and techniques did not require a government law to force them to do so.

Advancements in American technology and the quality of life in America have NEVER come as a result of government mandates or forced response to power-grabbing law.

Americans work towards better, more efficient lives on a daily basis; not because they are easy or because they are government ordered, but because we are ingenuitive, smart, creative, and most importantly, the free market demands it.

The American free market is the best system for creativity, ingenuity, productivity, and innovation. The free market ushered in the light bulb, the telephone, the television, the PC, the laptop, the cell phone, and the thousands of medical innovations in practice in hospitals across the globe.

The free market determines the cost and profit of innovation. If your innovation is not profitable and costs too much, it will sit on a shelf until someone creates the technology to make that innovation more cost effective.

Government legislation that forces high taxes, fees, and increases in all energy costs upon the average American to force the development of energy efficient products will not work.

You cannot force a naturally occurring event to occur faster because you legislate it to. You cannot write a law that forces innovation. It won't work.

All this clean energy legislation will do is raise energy costs so high that the American people will have to find alternatives to survive. However, the standards by which the government is mandating the energy efficiency of the required innovations are impossible to reach unless there is some miracle intervening invention comes to the forefront. Even Obama's experts say the technology does not exist to create the required efficiency this clean energy act calls for.

The Free Market is the best way to inspire invention and innovation. You cannot mandate it from Washington. You cannot force it upon the average American by raising taxes and costs so extremely that something has to give. It is unfair and immorral. It is the type of taxation that led to the first American revolution...perhaps it will take another.

They need to be fired. They need to lose their jobs, much like the thousands or, as some higher estimates predict, millions, of American people who will lose their jobs as a result of this bill.

HR 2454. It passed. Eight...8!!!...yellow-belly Republicans, hungry for the slobbering media love fest that Obama has been given since he spoke in at the Democratic National Convention several years back, sold out their party, their constituents, and their nation, along with the 211 Democratic Representatives who drank the kool-aid and toed the line, sucking on the nipple of Obama and his mighty teleprompter and Socialist agenda.

You scoff. You say not here, not in America. You think this, like my last piece, is nothing but extreme right-wing propaganda. The kind of propaganda that is getting me put on Janet Nopalitano's Homeland Security watch-list.

You take for granted your freedom and the beauty of the American way. You think that things will run like they always do. Nothing will change. Hey, it's Washington.

You are wrong. Your complacency is killing America. Your ignorance and apathy toward this Congress and this Socialist Czar, I mean President, is damning our country.


HR 2454 is a daggar in the eye of the American people. It is one more massive power grab by the Obama regieme. It will cripple the American economy more than you or I can fathom. Thousands upon thousands of calls flooded into the halls of the Capitol today, and those pleas were ignored.

Mitt Romney said it best. Washington is broken.

And so many of this country's people are happy with freedom and strength being stripped from us by the minute. We are stuck with our heads in the sand. We ignore the warning signs because people like Kanye West and Oprah tell us Obama is okay. What credentials do Kanye or Oprah have to tell us how great Obama's plan is? Kanye and Oprah are rich beyond compare. Obama's reckless spending has no effect on them. Or the Keith Olbermann's of the world.

The average, everyday, paycheck-to-paycheck American is getting taken behind the woodshed. And so are the unborn generations to come.

We are being raped by Obama's reckless policies and weakness.

America is being raped, and where is the outrage?

HR 2454 is going to raise taxes and fees to unbelievable heights for any company that expells Carbon Dioxide into the air. So, appearantly the few employees that they can keep won't be allowed to breathe while at work? You know, since we humans give off this naturally occurring gas everytime we exhale. One volcanic eruption gives off more Carbon Dioxide than we have since the advent of the automobile. The explosion of Mount Vesuvius that buried Pompeii gave off more CO2 than humans have in their existance.

And Obama is going to tax that gas. CO2 will be a taxable, fine-able substance.

Well, unless you buy into specialized companies that sell carbon-offsets. Interesting. The same people forcing this legislation on us, as well as ALL the GLOBAL WARMING garbage, are the same ones who own and operate these carbon-offset companies. Doesn't that seem like a conflict of interest? Perhaps a little quid pro quo? A little underhanded, good-ole-boy networking?

Al Gore, the biggest TOOL the liberals use to spread the garbage of global warming, owns several controlling interests in carbon-offset companies. Doesn't that seem odd to you? Doesn't that raise a red flag? Doesn't that bother you?

People still whine over the fact that a long-standing relationship between Haliburton and the Department of Defense continued during the Bush years. Haliburton worked with the DoD for years before Bush ever took the Governorship of Texas. Yet people are still crying foul that that relationship continued while Dick Cheney was VP, because Cheney had some pre-VP relationships with Haliburton.

Yet these same people turn a blind eye when Al Gore and his ilk bilk you and me for BILLIONS of dollars for their own carbon-offset companies. We will be forced to pay extra at the pump, more for our heating, more for our electricity, more for anything we buy that requires any sort of energy to create and deliver to market...we are going to become a collapsed, Russian-bread-line, third-world country if we don't get pissed off and enact change.

The unread stimulus package in January was sold to us as an emergency. Yet, more than half of the money is still over a year away from even being proposed on being spent. The emergency was so bad that NOT passing this unread stimulus bill would cause unemployment to skyrocket to over 9%. It was passed, and we are well on our way to 15-20% by Christmas. Go ahead, think about that. I will wait. .... Yes, we were sold on an unread, imperfect, pork-laden, waste-filled stimulus bill whose passage was told to guarentee less than 9% unemployment. Yet, where are we now?

Obama tells a woman that there will be "rules" to the nationalized health care...rules that might cut short the lives of the elderly because it would be more cost effective. But, the empathetic Obama will "give them a pill for the pain." Empathetic? More like PATHETIC.

Wake up, America. We are losing our country. I will say it again, I do not use this term lightly. I know the meaning of this word for so many people. I abhor the word. I use it because I am hoping to break through the hard-candy shell surrounding so many American brains.

Obama and the Democrats are RAPING America.

Come November 2010 and 2012...



Obama's Health Plan...Well, Willard Scott will be out of a job...

Once you read this blog, you will find that title in poor taste. You might even find the title repulsive. Hate the title. Hate the message. And remember, I am only commenting on the truth. I am hoping you people will forget Governor Sanford. I hope you will ignore the platitudes and bumper sticker slogans. I hope you will see past the garbage that is the main-stream media and their, to borrow a title from an EXCELLENT book about the 2008 campaign by Bernard Goldberg, Slobbering Love Affair with Barack Obama.

Open your eyes. Read between the lines. The lines are becoming more and more spread apart because Americans have become apathetic. Americans have their heads buried in the sand. If we don't reclaim America, and do it fast, while we have our heads in the sand, might as well raise up about 30" and go ahead and kiss our butts goodbye.

We are losing America. The greatest threat to freedom is the smooth-talking car salesman in the White House. He would smooth-talk most people into slaughtering their first born to help reduce the deficit he is expanding by the millisecond.

Am I overreacting? Am I propagandizing? Am I letting racist tendencies cloud my judgement?

MSNBC, CBS, NBC, and the 24-hour-Obama network (this week, anyway) ABC, would have you think so. The New York Times, if I had more than my modest readership, would accuse me of being responsible for killing Dr. Tiller and being a racist like the moronic piece of excrement that shot up the Holocaust museum.

But, I am not. I am an American. I am proud of my country, a great (though imperfect) nation. I love freedom and small government. I love the idea that I know better how to run my life than some stiffs in suits in Washington, DC. I think that if a woman has sex, she has made that choice with her body and that the killing of the pregnancy is MURDER. If you don't want kids, keep your legs closed....that is your choice, lady. If a woman is attacked, either physically, virtually, or in print, the person doing the attacking is scum (much like the scum who wrote the hate f**k list).

I also love and cherish the idea of previous generations making impacts on lives long into their golden years. I believe that the elderly have opportunities to contribute until they take their final breath, and we should do everything to ensure there are as many breaths in that lifetime as medically possible.

Obama and his health plan spell out different fates for the elderly. His plan would deny health care, critical, life-saving health care to elderly. Hence, the title of my blog...Obama's plan would lower the average age of the United States by decades as people would be dying sooner and sooner. Thus, putting Willard Scott out of a job announcing the 90-100+ seniors' birthdays.

Am I overreacting? Let me explain.

A woman told a brief anecdote about her grandmother.

The grandmother was 100 years old in 2004. She was failing in health, but had a "spirit" and lived an active lifestyle. The granny participated in many activities and kept the word "live" in alive. She was very spunky (my word) and had a lot more living to do, but just needed the lifesaving implantation of a pacemaker. Several doctors denied the operation. Finally, because of the grandmother's spirit, one doctor did the lifesaving operation. Guess what? 5 years later, in 2009, granny is still going strong, thanks to the doctor that looked at the individual and saw there was a life being lived...a life that needed saving.

The question posed to Obama from the woman, who had talked about her grandmother being saved and living a full life after the life-saving operation 5 years ago, asked if there would be, under the Obama plan, room for a doctor's judgement to determine that, despite age, a person's spirit and determination and ability to live a full life is worthy of taking the risk to save their life with an operation like a pacemaker.

The all-knowing, all caring, all seeing, great orator of our time answered as eloquently as he could without his teleprompter, answered this question in the coldest, meanest, most soul-less way possible. Forgive me as I paraphrase, but you surely can find the actual clip online.

To answer this woman's question as to whether her spunky grandmother would have lived those extra 5 full years under the Obama plan, Obama, the chosen one!, told this woman the following. He said that "spirit" is a very subjective idea, an idea that is hard to measure. He said that there have to be "rules" to determine whether a life-saving operation is feasible...RULES. RULES to determine whether we will save a life. Black and white, non-subjective RULES. He continued that those rules would determine whether the doctor would save the life, or "just give her a pill for the pain."

Do you get it? Do you see? I have been so worried about our future, I could not put fingers to keypad until 1am CDT two days later. I cannot believe what we are on the cusp of seeing enacted in the United States of America. Its bad enough children are shucking their responsibility to their aging parents and buries so many seniors in decrepit nursing homes, but now we are talking about a cut-off age for life-saving operations.

"Oh, sorry, you just turned 66. If you'd come in two weeks ago, you could have gotten the pacemaker. Here's a pill. Thank you, come again!"

Do you see? Can't you see where we are heading? Are you scared yet? Look at your grandparents...even your parents...under Obama-care, they better get sick young, or they will die slowly with survivable medical conditions because of Obama's RULES.

God help us if this passes.

The Hate Mongering of MSNBC and the Left

Watch Keith Olbermann use his post on MSNBC to spread his own version of hate, venom, and propaganda. MSNBC is the mouthpiece of left, liberal hate of conservatives.

Instead of covering it as a tragedy and addressing the true decency and heroics of the security guards, Olbermann uses this 6 minute segment to group all right wingers into the same group as the evil jerk that opened fire in the Holocaust Museum.

The evil dirt bag that opened fire is plain evil. He is called a terrorist several times by Olbermann, which is the only thing I agree with in the whole rant. However, the rant's purpose to is to lump all conservatives into the same category. I am aghast at the hypocrisy.

First, and most troubling, given our current plight thanks to the President that MSNBC (and Chris Matthews' tingling feelings in his legs) helped elect, is the fact that this guy, whose name I refuse to repeat in hopes that he is forgotten and not immortalized in print any more than necessary, is in fact a terrorist. A hate monger. A killer. An evil creature. Olbermann vilifies him, correctly. Where was this same scrutiny of William Ayers? Ayers did much the same type of domestic terrorism, yet MSNBC ignores that terrorist because they want to protect Barack Obama.

Ayers gets a pass because there was no right-wing ties. Without knowing who or what this Holocaust Museum shooter stood for, believed in, or who he allied with, he is automatically labeled right-wing.

Now, let's look at the coverage Olbermann gave the shooting of an American soldier on American soil by an American Muslim-convert.





No coverage. No denouncement. No attack on the killer of young kid who was fresh from boot camp. The kid hadn't hurt a soul. He gets gunned down by an evil, sick Muslim convert. Yet, nothing. (Not even the PRESIDENT, the COMMANDER in CHIEF denounced the killing of the soldier.)

This African-American Muslim is not even being called by his Muslim name. The media buries this story, yet you have irresponsible jokes for a commentator like Olbermann ranting and raving about a lunatic and putting all right wingers into the same group.

It's all part of a trend that is painfully obvious. People with a microphone or a computer with the power of major media outlets to promote their sludge (NY Times, Time, Newsweek, Playboy, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN) feel free to say or do whatever they want against conservatives.

Hate {sex} lists are okay. If we get upset with the idea that millions of people are going to see a list that details violent, hate-driven sex acts against women, its our fault because the intent was misunderstood. Violent, hate-driven acts, sexually or otherwise, are blatantly wrong. To promote them, tongue-in-cheek or otherwise, is morally decrepit.

Saying a Governor of a state looks like a "slutty flight attendant" is okay, as long as she is conservative. Saying her daughter, 14 years old, would probably get knocked-up by A-Rod is okay. The girl, though not a public figure herself, is the offspring of a conservative, so guilt by association. Sorry, Willow, because we hate your mom's ideals and principles and the fact that your mom married one man, is happy, has 5 kids, and a career, AND IS CONSERVATIVE, we are going to call you and your older sister a whore. And it is okay. If we get mad, its our fault for misunderstanding. (Letterman did apologize, but a week too late and not out of sincerity, but out of pressure.)

A US Soldier is gunned down by a hate-mongering Muslim in front of a crowded shopping center in Arkansas. We will bury that story behind the guinea pig in Rhode Island that recycles soda cans. No need to admit that the hate spewed by Democratic Congressmen and people like Olbermann might have inspired and further motivated the hate that led to the killing. Hell, it was just an American Soldier. We only care if they are killed in Iraq because we can blame it directly on George Bush. (I know I am not alone in that I noticed the giddy manner in which the networks had a countdown to the various 'milestones. Almost 1,000 dead! Almost!!! Almost 3,000!!!! Almost 4,000!!!)

Even the bowing-before-other-leaders, friends-to-unrepentant-terrorists, friend-and-business-associate-of-convicted-criminals-like-Rezko, spend-tax-dollars-like-a-spoiled-rich-girl-with-daddy's-stolen-credit-card, power-mongering, fear-mongering, but charismatic President Obama is directly pushing the hate. Throughout the campaign, he spent more time directly attacking Sean Hannity than giving details on how he was going to pay for his proposals. He continued his focus on attacking Fox News earlier today when, during an interview, he lamented on the fact that a "certain network" spends all day "attacking" his administration. He said you can watch all day and not see a positive story about Obama. Well, sad to say, originally crafted, the media and the press were designed to be an outlet to control the government by spreading the truth to the people. There is not, nor ever should be, a quota on positive stories about a President's administration. To suggest that a network should include positive stories means two things: he is for control of the media because he does not appreciate opposing voices, and that he, as the leader of the free world, spends a lot of time focusing on the media and what Fox News has to say. Shouldn't he be doing more important things?

Wait...perhaps he needs to watch MORE TV. Might keep him occupied so he cannot ruin any more of my country.

America....WAKE UP!

We are quickly entering into the development of the Orwellian society depicted in "1984." Big Brother is on its way. The government already runs the banks, the mortgage and loan industry, the car industry, and, coming soon to a socialist government near you, HEALTH CARE!.


2010 might be the last chance we have to save our nation.

I Met a Hero Today.

At the outlet mall today, I met a true hero.

I met a man with the honor, strength, and courage that even the most legendary heroes of lore would pale in comparison.

I met a man with the humility and humbleness of the greatest underdog characters in your favorite stories.

This man stood tall and proud...yet he is currently confined to a wheelchair.

His ailment came courtesy of an enemy attack. The hero rides, son in lap, in a wheelchair decorated in stickers of favorite rock bands and other statements of normalcy. Oh, and let us also notice the patch embroidered the back of his chair. The patch states that this strong, courageous, heroic, yet humble and proud hero has been awarded the Purple Heart.

I met a Purple Heart recipient.

I met and talked with a man who risked his life for me. He, like thousands others, is a parent, sibling, child, cousin, friend, and relative to many people in his life. They all put so much on the line for you and me.

This man, whose name I do not know, put his life on the line for me, a name he does not know.

So many Americans forget these people. They walk past them in a hurried rush as they have to get to the next store or meeting or where ever they are heading. They make a tight passing move round the slow-moving wheelchair, sometimes even with an audible sigh of frustration, making sure the driver of the chair on wheels knows that they have somehow inconvenienced you by simply being.

This man, with his young wife and son, were out at the outlet mall, doing what normal people take for granted. Enjoying a day in decent weather under the blanket of freedom his sacrifice helped knit. Hundreds of faces he may never see again passing by, ignorant of his sacrifice. The nameless masses taking for granted the freedoms his, and so many others', sacrifices have provided since the 1700s.

As I spoke briefly, not wanting to impose on a family day out, but long enough to make sure I let him know I was sincere, he spoke with humility and pride, decency and not a hint of pessimism. He told me he had gotten blown up and that is how his leg came to be in a full-length brace, confining him to his chair. I offered condolences and apologies, which were shrugged off, as if I were offering condolences for a bug-bite. I wished a full-recovery on his leg, to which he responded that he will probably lose the leg from mid-calf. He said it without a twinge of self-pity, fear, or negativity. It was as if he were telling me he was going to have to shave. No big deal. It happens.

Here is a young man, even younger than me, with a family, who risked life and limb, literally, for America. And he will have to pay the price of losing a large portion of his right leg. And he talks about it dismissively, showing that amazing and inspiring combination of courage and humility that can only be found in the American Soldier.

I left feeling uplifted and proud to be an American. I met the REAL soldier. Not the pranksters the media still plasters all over from Abu Garhib. Not the bold-faced lies of people like John Kerry, John Murtha and others, who have called out soldiers "terrorists" and "rapists" and "pillagers" and "murderers."

I met a real hero today. And I thanked him. I hope you will thank one of our heroes when you have the chance.

The Supreme Court: It is not SUPPOSED to be Empathetic

The Supreme Court is not supposed to be an agenda-forwarding body. The Supreme Court is not a political toy. It is not supposed to be a body that determines the future of the nation based on personal feelings, experiences, backgrounds, ethnicities, or any other personal fiat.

The job...the duty...the responsibility of a Supreme Court justice is to interpret the law as it applies to the Constitution. The Supreme Court is not a higher power than the Executive or Legislative branches of the federal government. No branch of government is supposed to answer to or beholden to the whims of nine people on the bench of the highest court in the land.

Supreme Court justices are supposed to be impartial to each case they hear. They are to take themselves out of the case and judge each case on its own merits, and apply applicable laws to the case. The laws from which they are to draw are supposed to be exclusively from the Constitution of the United States.

For the last century or so, the Supreme Court has veered far, far left of center and has led the way for activists to enact change in the United States, and, in the process, has usurped the powers of the legislative and executive branches of the federal government.

With the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, Obama has opened a Pandora's Box of issues with this Judge's idea of her responsibilities. As I am sure you have heard, Sotomayor made some questionable remarks about ethnicity and ability to judge cases.

First, I agree with the arguement that had the roles been reversed, no matter what the context, and a white male had said his experiences allow for wiser decisions that a Latin-American woman, he would be vilified until he would have to step down from any bench he could concievably sit upon. That man would no longer be able to touch a gavel in a United States court. A white man saying he is better at anything than a woman, minority, or a minority woman would lose everything he has ever worked for because he would be labeled, attacked, and crucified in the media and by even his closest political allies. Sotomayor, like any minority, gets a pass because white males have no rights and no protections from racist or hate comments. Its true. White males are not protected. We have no protections, no right to get upset, no inclination to fight and complain when we are attacked and left out for no other reason than our gender and color.

I can get over that. It's the hip thing to down white guys nowadays. We are the political whipping boys anymore. Fine.

My real problem with the comments is that Sotomayor is telling us that she relies on her background to interpret the law. Not her studies. Not her familiarity with precedents and the verbage of the Constitution (you know, the document that is the basis upon which ALL Supreme Court decisions should be made). Instead, because she is a Latin American woman, she has the experiences to make judicial decisions.

So, getting back to the original points at the beginning of this rant. The job of a judge, regardless of level, whether it be the Tazewell County Courthouse in Virginia, or the 9th Circut Court in California, or the US Supreme Court, is to use the words and meanings of the Constitution of the United States.

Not the laws of England. Not the governing documents of France or Germany. Not the laws and precedents of courts in South America, Europe, or Asia.

The US Constitution, and then the individual states' Constitutions.

Nothing else.

Not empathy for individuals. Empathy is fine, but it should not determine justice. Lady justice is blindfolded for a reason. She does not have one eye exposed to look down mercifully upon a purposed victim. Lady Justice weighs the evidence and the rule of law. That's it.

It is all well and good to show pity, empathy, and compassion on an individual basis. In fact, I encourage it. I think that it is truly American to help those in need when possible. I do not think it is the job of a Supreme Court justice to show caring and concern with their binding decisions on the court.

And neither did the framers.

Change we have to put up with...

Robert Gibbs, the number one spokesman for the Obama Administration, the press secretary, says that Obama did not bow before the king of Saudi Arabia.

Watch this video and see for yourself...

So, Obama bows before the King of Saudi Arabia, the same king who holds our nation hostage with his oil because we just won't drill our own. The President of the United States of America bowed before the king of a nation who manipulates our economy by the amount of oil his country produces.

This is just another in a series of forehead-slapping moments that our "experience is not necessary" President has provided us, and the world, with in less than three months in office.

Let's take a stroll down less-than 90 days of memories since January 20, 2009.

Ah, yes, we started the new year with an emergency spending package to save the economy. Yet, more than half of the spending occurs AFTER the economic crisis is predicted to be OVER. That's the same as if you were in a sinking ship, and then mortgaged your house to pay for the fix after you've reached port...ignoring the fact that there is still a hole taking on water as you spent that money. If the money was needed on an emergency basis, why is it being spent in the months leading up to the mid-term elections...AHA!!!!!

Oh, and then the budget with defense spending cuts, yet it is nearly double the current budget.

And let us not forget Obama's tact, statesmanship, class, and historic gifts he has bestowed upon heads of state. Instead of reading my personal opinion, please read the words of Ian Drury, writer for the Daily Mail, a UK newspaper. The article is entitled "To my special friend Gordon, 25 DVDs: Obama gives Brown a set of classic movies. Let's hope he likes the Wizard of Oz."

Ian Drury's piece...
As he headed back home from Washington, Gordon Brown must have rummaged through his party bag with disappointment.
Because all he got was a set of DVDs. Barack Obama, the leader of the world's richest country, gave the Prime Minister a box set of 25 classic American films - a gift about as exciting as a pair of socks.
Mr Brown is not thought to be a film buff, and his reaction to the box set is unknown. But it didn't really compare to the thoughtful presents he had brought along with him.
The Prime Minister gave Mr Obama an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet.
The unique present delighted Mr Obama because oak from the Gannet's sister ship, HMS Resolute, was carved to make a desk that has sat in the Oval Office in the White House since 1880.
Mr Brown also handed over a framed commission for HMS Resolute and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert.
In addition, Mr Brown and his wife showered gifts on the Obama children giving Sasha and Malia an outfit each from Topshop and six children's books by British authors which are shortly to be published in America.
In return, the Obamas gave the Browns two models of the presidential helicopter, Marine One, to take home to sons Fraser and John.

Wow! What a statesman. What a brilliant gift-giver. What a leader!

Oh, and then he does even better with his gift to the Queen of England.

He gives her an IPOD loaded with showtunes and pictures of herself on her visit to America.

And, then he bows to the King of Saudi Arabia, then his mouthpieces Robert Gibbs and MSNBC, say he was bending due to the height difference. Nice attempt at spin. Too bad the video shows differently.

Obama is a joke. He cannot speak without a teleprompter. If he does, he makes insulting comments like he did on the Tonight Show, where he insulted the bowling abilities of children in the Special Olympics. Yes, our President made fun of his own bowling ability by making light of the difficulties children in the Special Olympics deal with.

Wow. Classssssss-eeeee!!!!

Oh, and I love the fact that my grand children will be giving half their paychecks to pay down the debt we have incurred in only the last 80-some-odd days. Washington through Bush (43) totalled up less debt and deficit in the 230 years of this nation's history than Obama has in less than 3 months. We went over two centuries with less debt than we have amassed in 2 months.

And, Obama still writes checks on American tax payers with wreckless abandon.

Instead of relying on the abilities of Washington, DC, area chefs, knowing full well that White House chefs are among the best in the world, Obama spends tax-payer money to fly in a PIZZA chef from St. Louis, ingredients, dough, and utensils in tow, to the White House for a casual luncheon with over 140 people. He flew a PIZZA chef, staff, and business partners, along with the ingredients, from St. Louis to DC for a lunch. All on your and my tax dollars.

Not to mention the almost daily extravagant balls and parties and dinners the Obamas host in the White House, or in Chicago, to impress their 'friends' and co-horts.

All at our expense.

Meanwhile, they tease us and stir us up to get mad at AIG execs getting their contractually obligated bonuses. (No one dare tell you that the AIG execs who recieved the bonuses are in different divisions than those responsible for the failed portions of the company...oh, Keith Olberman didn't tell you?)

I am counting the days until November 6, 2012, when we can get back to normal. When we can get some class, honesty, decency, and leadership in the White House.

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
