Just Keeping Track For Myself

"When white would embrace what is right..." is what was prayed for at the inauguration of our new president, Mr. Obamanation. Well, they're getting what they prayed for.
This white girl is embracing what is right.
Right wing, baby!!!

I've been reading Glenn Beck's "Common Sense" book. I can't put it down, but I don't want to read it so fast I don't have time to absorb each chapter individually. In one of the chapters he talks about taxes, and how the government shouldn't be able to use it as a weapon to the people. If someone does something they don't like, they simply start threatening audits and tax crap. Glenn Beck says, "It's time we take away the ability of the Congress to bribe or punish companies by using the tax code. If a company breaks the law, use the criminal code, not the tax code, to punish them." He continues to point out that the "tax code has never really been about raising revenue as much as it is about punishing opponents, helping friends, or as President Obama says, instituting a system of 'fairness'." For an example he says to consider the following:

  • The US House of Representatives used its power to target a group of AIG insurance executives who collected a bonus they were contractually and legally allowed to receive by passing a bill that would have imposed an almost 90% retroactive tax on their bonus money;
  • New York state attorney general Andrew Cuomo threatened to reveal the names of AIG employees who were paid a contractual bonus and wouldn't voluntarily return that money;
  • GM was required to fire its CEO as a prerequisite to receiving any additional federal bailout money even though the CEO didn't engage in any criminal or corporate malfeasance;
  • Banking executives were threatened to accept government bailout funds or risk increased scrutiny and audits;
  • Government officials are seeking authority to seize and company the could pose-in their sole opinion-a "systemic" economic risk;
  • The sacrosanct "secret ballot" is under assault by union leaders who feel it's more important to get new members than protect free elections;
  • The government has suggested it will force states to accept the federal stimulus money even if they don't want it;
  • The state of Connecticut has considered legislation that would retroactively raise the state income tax on high wage earners;
  • The rich are being vilified and targeted because they are rich. (Class warfare is always politically popular, but common sense tells us that people won't work if they can't keep what they earn. It also tells us that what starts as the government taking on the "rich" always trickles down-remember, in 1913 the income tax was applied to only the wealthiest 1 percent.);
  • Executives at AIG, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac are all on the federal dole and have received billions in corporate welfare. Executives at all companies received bonuses, but while AIG executives were targeted by Congress and unions, executives at Fannie and Freddi received scant attention due to their ties to government.
It's time for these abuses to stop! "Wake up, America! You have bought into the lie that capitalism is only about money, corporations, greedy businessmen, and corrupt politicians who cut backroom deals. Capitalism isn't about money, it's about freedom-the freedom to try and fail that made the United States the richest industrial nation in the world by 1905 and the freedom that has kept us there ever since."

Sometimes it feels so overwhelming trying to keep up with all the crap that is going on in politics. When you finally feel like you're starting to see the whole big picture and can keep up with the treason, something new pops up. And every time I hear something new, I feel so ignorant for not having seen it or caught it sooner.
Like Al Gore's speech during BO's inauguration. I was so upset with BO's original speech to the school kids, yet Gore was able to sneak stuff into his speech this last January. Speaking to a bunch of 13-17 year old honor students, Gore said "Look, there's a lot of things you understand instinctively but your parents don't because they're just too trapped in old thinking."
Gore is referring to his stupid environmentalist agenda he's constantly pushing. He compared today's environmental issues to the 1960's issues of race, as if they're somehow the same thing or even closely related. People are NOT trapped into "old thinking." They're just remembering how poorly the government takes care of things, and they're not fooled by his claims that the world is melting. So where does Gore get off bad mouthing the parents of these kids who obviously are bright students and probably so because of their parents? Maybe he was just ignored with a shrug of shoulders and saying, "Eh, it's Gore. What does he know?"

Obama to Put Abortion Clinics in Public Schools

From an American Family Association newsletter, recieved this week:

There are many reasons to oppose President Obama's push to take over the nation's health care system, but among the most important is this one: his plan will put Planned Parenthood clinics inside your child's school.Yes, you read that right. Under an innocuous-sounding section titled "School-Based Health Clinics,"

H.R. 3200 will authorize Planned Parenthood, as a "sponsoring facility," to run a clinic during school hours on the grounds of public schools, with absolutely no accountability either to parents or school administrators.

Clinics would be accountable only to the Secretary of Health & Human Services, the radically pro-abortion Kathleen Sebelius, who was a fervent supporter of late-term abortionist George Tiller.

All this will be done at taxpayer expense. And unlike the rest of the bill, which isn't slated to go into effect until 2013, these clinics are scheduled to go into schools next fall.
As you know, Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider and the most dangerous purveyor of the mythical "safe sex" message which has deprived so many American teens of their sexual innocence and left them with diseases and unwanted pregnancies.

Obama spends 3 billion to save 350 Million

Here's a great little tidbit on Obama's fuzzy math that was sent to me:
• A vehicle at 15 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses about 800 gallons of gas a year.
• A vehicle at 25 mpg and 12,000 miles per year uses about 480 gallons a year
.• So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.
• They claim 700,000 vehicles – so that’s about 224 million gallons/year.
• That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil
.• 5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day’s U.S. consumption.
• And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $350 million dollars at $75/bbl.
• So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $350 million, which means over 8 years to get back even.

The President Without A Country

by Pat Boone

"We're no longer a Christian nation." - President Barack Obama, June 2007

"America has been arrogant." - President Barack Obama

"After 9/11, America didn't always live up to her ideals."- President Barack Obama "You might say that America is a Muslim nation."- President Barack Obama, Egypt 2009

Thinking about these and other statements made by the man who wears the title of president. I keep wondering what country he believes he's president of.

In one of my very favorite stories, Edward Everett Hale's "The Man without a Country," a young Army lieutenant named Philip Nolan stands condemned for treason during the Revolutionary War, having come under the influence of Aaron Burr. When the judge asks him if he wishes to say anything before sentence is passed, young Nolan defiantly exclaims, "Damn the United States ! I wish I might never hear of the United States again!" The stunned silence in the courtroom is palpable, pulsing. After a long pause, the judge soberly says to the angry lieutenant: "You have just pronounced your own sentence. You will never hear of the United States again.. I sentence you to spend the rest of your life at sea, on one or another of this country's naval vessels - under strict orders that no one will ever speak to you again about the country you have just cursed."

And so it was. Philip Nolan was taken away and spent the next 40 years at sea, never hearing anything but an occasional slip of the tongue about America.. The last few pages of the story, recounting Nolan's dying hours in his small stateroom - now turned into a shrine to the country he fore swore - never fail to bring me to tears. And I find my own love for this dream, this miracle called America , refreshed and renewed. I know how blessed and unique we are. But reading and hearing the audacious, shocking statements of the man who was recently elected our president - a young black man living the impossible dream of millions of young Americans, past and present, black and white - I want to ask him,

"Just what country do you think you're president of?"

You surely can't be referring to the United States of America , can you? America is emphatically a Christian nation, and has been from its inception! Seventy percent of her citizens identify themselves as Christian. The Declaration of Independence and our Constitution were framed, written and ratified by Christians. It's because this was, and is, a nation built on and guided by Judeo-Christian biblical principles that you, sir, have had the inestimable privilege of being elected her president. You studied law at Harvard, didn't you, sir? You taught constitutional law in Chicago ? Did you not ever read the statement of John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and an author of the landmark "Federalist Papers": "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers - and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation - to select and prefer Christians for their rulers"? In your studies, you surely must have read the decision of the Supreme Court in 1892: "Our lives and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian." Did your professors have you skip over all the high-court decisions right up till the mid 1900's that echoed and reinforced these views and intentions? Did you pick up the history of American jurisprudence only in 1947, when for the first time a phrase coined by Thomas Jefferson about a "wall of separation between church and state" was used to deny some specific religious expression - contrary to Jefferson' s intent with that statement? Or, wait a minute . were your ideas about America 's Christianity formed during the 20 years you were a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ under your pastor, Jeremiah Wright? Is that where you got the idea that " America is no longer a Christian nation"? Is this where you, even as you came to call yourself a Christian, formed the belief that " America has been arrogant"? Even if that's the understandable explanation of your damning of your country and accusing the whole nation (not just a few military officials trying their best to keep more Americans from being murdered by jihadists) of "not always living up to her ideals," how did you come up with the ridiculous, alarming notion that we might be "considered a Muslim nation"? Is it because there are some 2 million or more Muslims living here, trying to be good Americans? Out of a current population of over 300 million, 70 percent of whom are Christians? Does that make us , by any rational definition, a "Muslim nation"? Why are we not, then, a "Chinese nation"? A "Korean nation"? Even a "Vietnamese nation"? There are even more of these distinct groups in America than Muslims. And if the distinction you're trying to make is a religious one, why is America not "a Jewish nation"? There's actually a case to be made for the latter, because our Constitution - and the success of our Revolution and founding - owe a deep debt to our Jewish brothers. Have you stopped to think what an actual Muslim America would be like? Have you ever really spent much time in Iran? Even in Egypt? You, having been instructed in Islam as a kid at a Muslim school in Indonesia and saying you still love the call to evening prayers, can surely picture our nation founded on the Quran, not the Judeo-Christian Bible, and living under Shariah law. Can't you? You do recall Muhammad's directives [Surah 9:5,73] to "break the cross" and "kill the infidel"? It seems increasingly and painfully obvious that you are more influenced by your upbringing and questionable education than most suspected. If you consider yourself the president of a people who are "no longer Christian," who have "failed to live up to our ideals," who "have been arrogant," and might even be "considered Muslim" - you are president of a country most Americans don't recognize. Could it be you are a president without a country?

Acorn Tax Scandal

I've been watching Glenn Beck break the news all week on the Acorn scam. It's sick! It's absurd!!! They didn't even care they were going to be using 14 year old illegal immigrant girls as prostitutes. Wow-and that's the agency Obama is associated with. Anyone surprised?! Anyway, here's the article:

Indicted ACORN employeesIn a story on FoxNews Radio, truth broker Glen Beck is revealing how ACORN assists people in tax evasion in the process of helping them to buy houses. Beyond that; assisting in prostitution and condoning child labor in the illegal sex trade along with illegal immigration.Beck plans on playing an undercover video made by two people who were fed up with the corruption displayed by ACORN in their institutionalized voter registration fraud, their intimidation of voters. The corrupt manner in which members of congress are protecting ACORN ought to bring clearly to light just about every member of the Congressional Black Caucus for protecting ACORN, as well as making use of their services, and topped with the 8.9 BILLION dollars they have set up to fund ACORN with.Other congressional members including Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, even the President of the United States, have protected ACORN, defended them, made use of their services, campaigned with for ACORN, and now are funding them to the tune of nearly 9 Billion dollars.These two patriots went into an ACORN office in Baltimore posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend went to ACORN complaining about how banks would not give them a loan for a house. In the process of finding a “tax code” the ACORN Accountant advised them not to file taxes if they wanted to get around paying them. The tax code they found was one of an “entertainer”. Soon thereafter, the boyfriend states that they want to bring up some very young girls from El Salvador to “learn” how to do what he and his girlfriend did, which was very clearly admitted to be prostitution. These girls were going to be illegal aliens as the tape shows. The ACORN representative even suggested that they could claim at lease some of them as dependants and get a child credit for them. The ACORN Rep not only does not blink, but says that they won’t have problems with the feds.Not only is all of the above blatantly illegal, it’s immoral on a level that is almost unbelievable. But apparently it is all OK with ACORN. Apparently it is also ok with the President of the United States, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, and the Congressional Black Caucus as these “public servants” have been complicit in the protection of ACORN and in the vast increase in its funding and power in Washington.Glen Beck will be playing the video on his Fox News tv show tonight.Stay tuned, and watch the fireworks.

Health Care

"The time for games has passed. Now is the time for action. Now is the time to deliver on health care," Obama told a cheering crowd of more than 10,000 people at the Target Center sports arena in Minneapolis."
President Obama is dividing the nation in two, and despite claims to govern from the middle it is more than clear he only supports his own agenda. Despite the fact that tens of thousands of Americans from all over the country marched on Washington D.C. on September 12, Obama ignored the protest and is now more determined than ever to pass his Obamacare. Obama refuses to listen to the millions of Americans who oppose his plan. He is ignoring the very people he is supposed to be serving.
It is now more important than ever to let your voice be heard!!! Get off your couch, stop screaming at the TV and pick up a phone and make some calls!

School Address

Intentions are an anticipated outcome that guides your planned actions. If were to judge someone based on their original intentions it would be a safe bet that you would be seeing their real character. Their real, raw character. And those original intentions would be what they would follow and turn into real actions, unless of course they're so offensive they have to change them to please other people.
It seems that this is a current theme for our current presidency. It seems like his first and real intentions are always rejected by the public. He intends to do a lot of things he deems as "good" for America, but once the people catch wind of his intentions and throw a fit he has to come up with a new idea. He's done this throughout the presidency, but today I'm talking about the original video he was going to show school children. That video had intentions of familiarizing children with phrases like, "I pledge to serve the President." Fortunately, that video is not going to be shown anymore, as originally intended. They've had to change their original course of action, again.
For those that support the content of the video and can't believe true Americans would want their children watching it, here's a quick lesson.
We are free citizens. We don't "serve" the president. He serves us. He is our public servant. We pay his paycheck. We vote him in. If he does too many wrong things, we vote him out. That goes the same for all government workers. We don't serve the police, the fire department or the IRS. They're here for US.
Judging by the president's original intentions on that video and those who helped make it, either he is ignorant regarding what his job as a public servant is, or he is intentionally demanding that the American people serve him. Either way you look at it he's wrong.

Presidential School Address

This last week at work we've all been discussing the issues with the president talking to the kids at school. I've never known a president to have such problems. Perhaps because his original intentions were to have the children pledge their allegiance to him. Hmmm. Anyway, I love the Magnolia school district. They wouldn't even show the address until I think today. They wanted a chance to review it before they would let the kids see it. That's right-way to go Magnolia! Not only that, but if you still don't want your child to watch the video they will have a separate room for them to hang out in.
Anyway, the speech wasn't as bad as all that. I read it with some co-workers this morning. In fact, it wasn't too bad. He did bring in a dose of harsh reality that is appropriate for some stupid high school kids out there:
"I know that sometimes, you get the sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work -- that your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star, when chances are, you’re not going to be any of those things."
However, it might be a little harsh to the pre-k kid who still wants to be a dinosaur when they grow up. I think they should still be given a little time to dream.

Let me get this straight.

Obama's health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it and whose members will be exempt from it, signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that is broke.

What could possibly go wrong?

Van Jones

I've been freaking out all week about Van Jones and what a creep he is, calling the White House and Senators or anyone else who would listen.. and then yesterday I woke up to the headline that he had sent in his resignation letter. Thank goodness, that guy is sick. He shouldn't be allowed to live in the United States.
One down-so many more to go.
I just am so glad that there are people out there who are starting to realize that the constitution is about to hanging by a thread and if people don't start doing SOMETHING, worse things will happen. I'm so glad that the White House phone line was BUSY for two days straight.. good American's are standing up for what they believe in.
Anyway-the ball is rolling we just need to keep the momentum going. We have a long way to go!
