Quote of the Day

I was out and about in the political sphere this morning and ran across this quote posted by anuts in the comment section of a Hot Air post.  You can see the original Hot Air article by clicking the title of this post.

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

–Ayn Rand
I'd say we are certainly in that predicament in the USSA (United Socialist States of Amerika).  The leftists have been busy for years creating thought crimes, diet crimes, philosophy crimes.  They have been busy creating a divided society that has young against old, right against left, black against yellow against red against white. 

Get the leftists out of the government.

Liar In Chief

Great video documentary featuring the Prevaricator in Chief and highlighting all his broken promises.  He and all his minions have to be removed from office and soon.  Is this a slanderous post?  I don't think so.  His untruths and unseemly associations are well documented by eyewitnesses.

Is The President a US Citizen or Is He Not?

Probably in the technical sense, but barely.

I was cruising around the Internet this morning, drinking my morning coffee, chatting with my daughter via instant messenger.  Dear Daughter sent me a link to a blog titled "Do Not Tread On Us".  I read the article my daughter had linked to, which describes why liberals don't do well in political arguments.  I then poked around the blog to find out a little more about the writer.  Buried was an older post about Barry Obama Soetero, our illustrious president dictator.  This referenced the idea that a school in which Barry had been enrolled released documents in 2007 showing that indeed, Barry might NOT be a real citizen.  I stepped into that pile of goo a little late!  It's an idea that has been floating a long time, but I've ignored.

Well, I think the "birth" part has been debunked, he seems to have been born in Hawaii after all.  But is a real American only that because of his place of birth?  I think not.  The American way, the American ideal, is an idea.  And Barack Obama was NOT raised with any sense of love for this country, patirotism, loyalty.

I started this post with the idea of pondering the question of Barry's citizenship, but posted before I researched.  I am re-posting without the "truther" CORRECTION: "birther" conspiracy.

I am thankful again to Atlas Shrugs for addressing this while I was still pondering.  Go read the article there titled "Going Home: Obama in Indonesia, A Third World Presidency".

Nails it down pretty well for me.

The Youth Brigade is Here

Every good dictator knows that if you start brainwashing people in childhood, they will never break from their psycho-grooming.  You liberal socialist democrat types don't even know that you are not really free thinkers, you are the pets and tools of the left who, in their minds, exist solely to serve their whims.

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs has posted one of the most frightening things I've seen in recent days.  She relates how the Democrat Socialists of America have hosted a Young Democrat Socialist youth gathering in a New York public school.  This stuff has no business in the public schools!  And these people should not have access to American youth!

At the bottom of Pamela's article is a list of Democrat Socialists already in Congress.  There are 75 of them.  Scroll through the list, you will see a lot of familiar names.  If your congressional representative is among them, it is time to drop what you are doing and go on the warpath against them.  Also in her article is a side-by-side comparison of Hitler's Nazi goals and the goals of the Democrat Socialists.  Yes, they are the same goals.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  We need to listen to the WWII generation who saw Hitler's march to power with their own eyes.  They see that Obama is doing just what Hitler did.  People who refuse to see that have their heads in the sand.  Sugar-coating it doesn't make it go away.

This is real, it is now, and it is very scary stuff.  Visit the DSA (linked above) website and  you will see how far down the path we have already gone towards destruction of this once-great country.

Time to get them out, whatever it takes.  Because they are trying to enslave us, however they can.

Hope and Change - Mantra of the Oppressors

Guest blogger Val Prieto wrote the wonderful (but scary) article "Prevent or Lament" at Michelle Malkin.
Val's father is Cuban and saw the revolution in which Castro assumed (isn't that an understatement!) dictatorship of what was once an island paradise.  The article shares a conversation he had with his dad.  Blog commenter TooMuchTime relates what is a common Cuban sentiment:
On March 24th, 2010 at 12:36 pm, TooMuchTime said:
I read on a blog somewhere, before the 2008 election, the blogger was dining in Miami and noticed an older Cuban couple. When he spoke with them they told him they came to the U.S. in 1960.
The blogger said, “So you got out just after Castro took over.”
Without missing a beat, the Cuban man said, “Yes. We’ve seen hope and change before.”
Fidel Castro is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths. Go to that link, read the  numbers, then scroll down and look at the pictures some of the commenters have posted.  Then go to THIS LINK and scroll through the many articles posted there.  The brutality of Castro is very evident.  Don't think that President Obama is not of the same mindset. 

Be warned people! Obama and all the other Socialist Democrats do not have your best interest in mind. They have THEIRS. Don't follow them off this cliff.

Rep Dingell Thinks He Should Control the American People?

H/T to Lonely Conservative and American Thinker for this one. 

Representative John Dingell (D-MI) claims 18,000 people a year are dying for lack of health insurance coverage.You can listen to Dingell speaking with Paul W. Smith of station WJR 760 AM, billed as "The Great Voice of the Great Lakes" in Detroit.  The interview starts at about 1:24 on the timer.  A new age of serfdom has arrived; Dingell speaks of his constituents as "my people".  He offered this lovely little thought:

"Let me remind you this [Americans allegedly dying because of lack of universal health care] has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."  (Emphasis added)
If 18,000 people a year are dying, why did they not get those people covered NOW instead of 4 years from now?  Can the Democrats now take credit for  72,000 needless deaths because of their delay? 

Health reform is not about helping people, it's about controlling people.


I Heard a Whisper...The Illustrious Senior Senator from Oregon Said...

H/T to Hot Air for pointing out that one of Oregon's senators has apparently told the Huffington Post that he won't vote to bar sex offenders' access to Viagra.  In their zeal to make sure their pet project doesn't get derailed in reconciliation, they are going to refuse even the most reasonable of amendments offered by Republicans.

“Democrats in the Senate are very unified that this is not going back to the House,” Sen. Wyden (D-Ore.) told the Huffington Post on Tuesday, minutes before the Coburn amendment was introduced.

What are the Democrats afraid of?  Do they fear having to try re-stuffing this health care bill through the House of Representatives?

What a colossal bunch of losers.  They will never do the right thing just for the sake of doing the right thing.

The Socialists Won A Battle; Now It is Our Turn

This passionate article was written by Dana Loesch and posted at biggovernment.  I offer a small quote here, please click the linked title and read the entire thing.  It is well worth the time; I hope you will be inspired to act as I was.
How many men and women have shed blood for this country? How many patriots took to the streets to defend this country blessed by God? Don’t you dare give up, patriots. Don’t you dare make their sacrifices in vain because you’re afraid of battle. Take no prisoners, suffer no fools, never surrender.

What – you thought you get this land scott-free? Liberty is never fully paid off and to be deserving of it one must be willing to fight for it on the battlefield, in the halls of congress, by involving yourselves in your communities. Such a struggle is not a burden, it is a privilege.

How bad do you want liberty? I’ve received several emails from folks who’ve said that they’re ready to move, to leave the country, and give up. I received an email the other day from a woman named Melanie who confessed that she just “doesn’t have time to get involved.” During a conversation about precinct captains with a gentleman at a recent protest, I was told that the commitment “sounds like too much time.”

My reply:

Get out.

Get out of my country any freeloader who possesses such an attitude, you betrayers of conservatism, of liberty. How dare you claim the belief of self-sustenance and individualism while warming your hands by another patriot’s fire, living off the fat of another patriot’s blood, sweat, and tears. As I said on my radio program last week: any one who dares call themselves a patriot and refuses to commit to maintaining their country’s liberty can burn in hades with the socialists who’ve jeopardized our children’s futures.

 Please click the link to read the entire thing; this article is a must-read. Amazing piece of writing, says what I wish I had the eloquence to say. If you read it there, you see my heart. Time to stand up and be counted, stand up and do something that counts.

Revolution is not easy. Revolution is painful. Generations of people have spilled their blood protecting the great gift of liberty that we have enjoyed. To let it slip away is to spit upon the sacrifices made in generations before us. It means something to me. I will be setting afoot for the Liberty Tree. Join me.

Colonel Allen West at AtlasShrugs

Read this article at Atlasshrugs.  It is encouraging and uplifting.  Take heart, gird yourself, and head into the battle to defend our Constitutional republic.  It's not over till we give up and say it's over.


Time to help one bad turncoat move out of Congress and off to pasture.  Get Bart Stupak out of office, support  Dr. Dan Benishek for the House of Representatives.  Stupak sold out.  This Youtube video shows he planned to sell out all along.  He had no intention of ever voting against this horrific bill.

Check out Hillbuzz.org for a huge list of major donors to Democratic candidates.  Join in letting those donors know we know who they are, and we are not happy with them.

Boycott businesses who helped get people like Stupak (and Obama) in office.  I know who some of them are in my town, and I will be letting them know they've lost my business.

They Really Did It...

I feel like I did the night Barack Barry Obama was elected president.  I do not want to get up and watch the gloat-fests in the mainstream media.  Losing the health care fight is a very depressing defeat in the short-term, but payback will be sweet.  

I will join in the efforts to throw every Democrat bum out of office who is up for election this November.  First on my hit list?  Bart Stupak Sellout.

The founding fathers of the United States of America pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor.  Should we do less than that?  How much does our liberty mean to us?

I don't want to think that my loved ones who have sacrificed their lives, spilled their blood for this country, did so in vain.  I don't want to go through life knowing that a bunch of radical Marxists spit on the graves of my dear ones to make this country into another Marxist paradise.

Anyone who thinks Marxism is so wonderful ought to go read blogs that come out of Cuba.  It is easy to see that no revolutionary promises every come to fruition.  They are lies given in order to manipulate the populace.  The USA is a nation filled with people who think that somehow they have a right to "something for nothing".

What a sham.  As Margaret Thatcher (former Prime Minister of Britain) is credited with saying, "Sooner or later you run out of other people's money".

No one has the right to put their hands in MY pocket and take the fruits of MY labor for someone else's wish list.
I will be agitating politically to keep all Alinsky-ite hands out of my pockets.

Latest Political Meme...

Or soon to become one...

Attributed to blogger Kathleen McKinley, who says "We've moved from passing bills without reading them to passing bills without voting on them".

This quote also appears on Michelle Malkin's blog.

Pass it on   Call your legislators.  Congress is no longer governing by the consent of the governed, they have become Hugo Chavez.

I *LOVE* My Water Heater (NOT!)

Today begins week two of the newest family adventure with plumbing. Last week we got up Monday morning to take showers and prepare for school, only to discover that the pilot light on our water heater had gone out. Couldn't get it to stay on.

I called a plumber to look at it as my resident plumbing expert, my husband, was out of town. The plumber thought the gas valve was bad, and offered to change it for $397.00. That is not small change! I can buy a NEW water heater for that kind of money! The plumber offered to install a new water heater for roughly $900.00. I politely declined saying I needed to speak with my husband before making a decision.

Unfortunately my husband was not due back in town until Thursday night.

We took a few cold showers last week, not fun!

Dear husband got home Thursday night, went right out to the garage and tried to light the pilot. The darned thing fired right up and stayed on all weekend!

Well, my husband took off on Sunday and when I got home from taking him to the airport I prepared to get into the shower. No hot water. The pilot was out again. And has been out since, it will NOT stay lit. Go figure.

We have a repair kit from the Whirlpool company (not the refrigerator people, but a division of AO Smith I am told) because there was a class action lawsuit and worldwide recall of these heaters for this very problem. We won't get the new part installed until next weekend.

In the meantime, more cold showers. Brrrrr....
