Latest Rasmussan Poll, Global Warming again, and unlistening Representatives abound….

Hillary must be in heaven this day, because the latest Rasmussan Poll which asked about Free Health care, says that 44% of Adult Americans desire Free Health Care.

People how many times do you have to be told that you need to start thinking before you approve of something?

Okay, say that you get your way on this and all Americans get free health care. Just who is going to pay for this free health care? The Government? People, if the government pays for it, where does their money come from? It comes from us, in the form of Taxes…..and if they have to pay for the free health care, then our taxes are going to be raised to compensate for it and then we will be paying for the free health care.

And another thing. If we get free health care, what would happen if you suddenly had an emergency? You would end up waiting. It would be just like Canada where people have free health care, but they do not get good health care. Socialized Medicine, which is what Free Health Care really is, is something that does NOT help anyone. If you do not mind standing in line for weeks for a simple procedure, if you do not mind being put off when you need medical help, if you do not mind not being able to choose your own doctors, and only getting the ones that your government program says you get, then by all means….let your representatives give you Socialized medicine. I for one do not want that. I want a market where men and women continue to go to college to become doctors. Socialized medicine and free health care does NOT give anyone incentive to become a doctor. Socialized medicine and free health care will cause another bad problme that we will then have to cope with. And that is, a lack of doctors. This needs to stop before Free Health care destroys America’s doctors.

But the madness doesn’t end there! Now, on top of all of that, the Global Warming crap is back again, with Democrat Representative Dingell, proposing a 50 cent per gallon Gas Tax hike to fight Global Warming! Our representatives in Washington are freaking insane people. How many times does the scientific community have to prove that our weather is only warming now, because of cyclical changes in the climate? If you people remember, as I have said before, 30 years ago these same “experts” were saying that we were all going to die because a new ice age was coming. This global warming crap is just that, CRAP. And there is no proof that it is really happening, except for the fact that everytime the temperatures go up, the global warming crowd comes out and starts screaming about how we are all going to die because it is getting hotter and then they pass off their lies like the one that said that 1998 was the warmest year on record. They touted that until it was proved that they were wrong….then we heard nothing more from them…….until now. Here is the story from Fox News.

Forty-four percent (44%) of American adults say that health care services should be made available for free to all Americans. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 39% disagree and 17% are not sure.
Fifty-two percent (52%) say that reducing health care costs is a higher priority than making sure everyone is insured. Thirty-nine percent (39%) take the opposite view. Most Democrats (57%) say that providing insurance for everyone is the top priority. Most Republicans (71%) and those not affiliated with either party (52%) say reducing costs should be the priority.
A survey last week by Rasmussen Reports have shown that 50% support government guaranteed health coverage and 62% say the U.S. health care system needs major changes. Another survey, released earlier this week showed that 31% rate the U.S. health care system as good or excellent but that those with insurance are generally happy with their coverage.
The latest survey finds that Democrats favor free health care for all by a 59% to 21% margin. Republicans are opposed by a 64% to 25% margin. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 46% favor free health care and 35% are opposed.
Younger Americans are more supportive of free health care than their elders. Among those under 30, 64% favor free health care. Among senior citizens, there is just 26% support for the notion. A plurality of Americans under 50 favor free health care while a plurality of Americans over 50 are opposed.
Most Americans earning less than $60,000 favor free health care for all. Most earning more than that are opposed.
Among all Americans, only 16% believe that people with medical conditions such as diabetes should pay higher insurance premiums. Seventy percent (70%) disagree.
The survey also found that 47% favor requiring everyone to buy health insurance. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed. Democrats favor this approach by a three-to-one margin. A plurality of Republicans are opposed while a plurality of unaffiliateds are supportive.
Fifty-one percent (51%) say that if someone can’t afford health insurance the government should match payments to help pay their premiums.


We all have to learn, that the democrats’ only agenda in our government is to put more governmental controls on the American people, and take more and more of the control from the people. That in a nutshell is it people. They feel that the more power they have….the better we will all be, when the opposite is really true.

So, here in this one post people, we have two things that show just how our Representatives are spinning things so that the truth that is perceived by all of us, is the truth that they want us to believe. And people, no matter how much they tout that Global Warming is true, and that Socialized Medicine is the way to go, just doesn’t make it so. And the big problem we have here people is we are letting them do this to us, from Al Gore’s stupidity, telling us what we have to do, when he doesn’t have to do the same things……to this new Democrat Dingell proposing the tax hike on Gasoline to help stop Global Warming. The only thing that the tax hike will do people is to put more money in the governments’ pockets and more out of ours. It seems when we talk, the government doesn’t listen unless we speak all the time. I think the time has come for us to speak out against whatever our Representatives are doing….and let them know that they need to stop this insanity, and get on with running the government, and stop interfering with our lives. let them know that We are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore!” PERIOD!

Global Warming? Total bunk!
Free Health Care? Just another ploy, to control you and your money. Don’t let them get away with it, because they think they have us all hoodwinked!

Don’t let them get away with anything! Right now, another thing they are trying to do, is to pass other laws, that they have tried before, and we have spoken out against. Only now, they are disguising them in other bills that have nothing to do with the laws they are trying to pass. Contact your senators and representatives and give them “what for.” This is ridiculous people. They are supposed to represent us, as I have said before, and I WILL say it again and again until they get the message! They need to start doing their job! And their job is not to pass laws that we do not want!

Nancy Palosi melts down on CNN…..And what Ahmadinejad really meant with his prayers.


This was good to see, as Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room took on Nancy Palosi and had her melting down on national television. The Democrats can’t get away from making everything that is happening Political, and the war is the biggest political pawn that they have. Here is Palosi as she was interviewed by Blitzer on CNN:

PELOSI: I’m frustrated myself.
BLITZER: — that this war continues.
PELOSI: We sent it to the president, he vetoed it. Any further attempts to do that have been met by the 60-vote barrier in the United States Senate. Now, I’ll be the last person to give you a civics lesson about what that means, but what it does mean is that the Republicans in the Senate have now taken ownership of the war in Iraq. It was President Bush’s war, and now it is the Republicans’ and Congress’ war. And that marks a big turning point for us because we had hoped to have bipartisanship and redeploying the troops out of Iraq, to do so in a timely fashion.
This line right here says it all folks……all she is interested in is politics….and that is what she is throwing out here….which is wrong. So Mr. Blitzer continues on….. “So are you telling your angry base out there that the Democratic Party wants to see this war over with, wants to see the US troops home, that you, as speaker, there’s nothing you can do, you have to just throw your hands up and –“
PELOSI: I didn’t say that at all.
BLITZER: Given the legislative problems in the Senate and the president’s stubborn refusal to back down, that there’s nothing that you can do?
PELOSI: How could you have ever gotten that impression —
BLITZER: You tell us —
PELOSI: — when I have said, for those who pay attention, is that we will hold this administration accountable time and time again for the conduct of this war in Iraq.
And here is where the meltdown as Rush calls it starts to take shape: “I’ve said this time and again, for those who pay attention.” And this question, if your thinking about it, is a very good question to come out of Wolf Blitzer…. “You’re saying there’s nothing you can do, it’s the Republicans war, nothing you can do.” “In the Gallup poll, the last one, only 24% of the American public thinks Congress is doing a good job.” And of course, there IS nothing that she can do about it, except to get mad….and she did…..
PELOSI: To tell you the truth, I don’t approve of the way the Congress is ending the war in Iraq myself. Your audience should not mistake the rating for Congress as a rating for the Democrats. We’re as high as we’ve ever been. We’re up 53% of 30-something for the Republicans in terms of favorability of a political party in the Congress. And I am not sure where she gets these numbers because the favorability ratings for both parties is low right now…and no where near 53% like she says…..
Then after that, Wolf says this…..: “If he holds firmly and he vetoes and you don’t have enough to override –” this is the SCHIP program, S-CHIP program, “If the president holds firm and he vetoes and you don’t have enough votes to override,” which they don’t, “what happens to those six million or ten million children who might need that health insurance right away?”
PELOSI: The president gives new meaning to the biblical term “suffer little children.” This is about as deep a value — deeply held value in America as you can have, care for our children.
BLITZER: And he’s also made this accusation against you and the Democrats that you’re looking for a political wedge, a political issue to score points. You really don’t care so much about the children; you really want to embarrass the president.
PELOSI: The president doesn’t think I care about children? I have five children. I have six grandchildren. I took the gavel on behalf of America’s children. This president will be haunted by legislation to support America’s children for as long as he is president or as long as he resists giving health insurance to America’s children.

People, we have got to stop believing the mainstream media and start using our brains here. If you would just sit back and use your common sense here you would see the back tracking and back pedalling that she and the rest of the governments politicians are doing…..and

Going just a little farther, Jason, in his last comment here actually agreed with me on one thing, and that is that Ahmadinejad is not a good person…but he sees differently about the invitation to Columbia. He says that it was a good thing, because it let us know just what kind of person he is…..but that is wrong. We already know what kind of person he is, but we are asleep to the dangers of it. The only thing that was accomplished, with what happened at Columbia University , was to give him (Ahmadinejad) credibility, something that he didn’t need. Now, if the press had treated him like they treat Bush, then it would have been a better thing. Here is an example:

At the beginning of Ahmadinejad’s speech, he gave a prayer that in essence said this:


When Ahmadinejad took the podium, he opened with a prayer to Allah for the return of the Mahdi and then complained that Bollinger’s greeting was “unfriendly.”
This was followed by a rambling story about the Almighty, angels, Adam and the prophets. Quotations from the Koran abounded. So did references to science, scientists and the nature of man.
It soon became apparent that what Ahmadinejad wished his audience to know is that science and theology are indivisible. “Science is a divine gift,” he said repeatedly, “and therefore, it must remain pure. God is aware of all reality. All researchers and scholars are loved by God. So I hope there will be a day where these scholars and scientists will rule the world and God himself will arrive with Moses and Christ and Muhammad to rule the world and to take us toward justice.”

The press was all over his speech like it was a wonderful thing to behold and that this man deserves our respect and honor. But if President Bush had started a speech with a prayer like Ahmadinejad had done, then the press and the liberals would have been all over it saying that he was wrong and that ‘separation of religion and state have to be upheld, even though that is not what the founding fathers meant by separation of church and state.” People, we have got to get our heads out of our rear ends, and start looking at what this man actually said here. He wasn’t praying for unity or peace, he was praying for God to give him permission to kill millions of infidels so they can take over the world.

The difference between him and us people is he wants war, to cleanse the world of people like us, so Islamism can take over….and in Christianity, we want to save people so that they can spend eternity with God and Jesus. We do not want to pray to God to kill people, but that is what he is doing and what he was doing at Columbia. Think on that one people. If you don’t believe me, read the Koran….and study their methods. You will see what he actually meant. He talked the way he did because he knows that we have a soft spot, that will cloud what is actually happening…and we are letting it happen. If we don’t stop this stupidity, we will be in an all out war that will destroy us because we are too afraid to commit. He is counting on that…and we are giving it to him. Unfortunately!

The Voice of Evil is Ahmadinejad…..


Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia U.

I have heard this sentence a lot today, describing Ahmadinejad’s talk on the campus of Columbia University. The Voice of Evil. Kind of like Hitler was in the 1940’s when he was pushing his thousand year Reich. Ahmadinejad is doing the same thing now, and like Hitler, he is a great orator, and can talk circles around any question, from denying the Holocaust, to not denying the Holocaust to saying that nothing is absolute. This man is crazy and insanely off his rocker, but, he is not a dumb man. Just like Hitler, he knows how to sway the masses and get them to think he isn’t such a bad man. But, he is and he will never convince me otherwise. The wrong thing here is, the organizer of the Minutemen, who defends America totally, was refused the ability to speak at Columbia, but the Terrorist enemy of the United States was invited. This was wrong…..and I have no respect anymore for that University.

Here is a story on his talk from the AP wires today:


Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad defended Holocaust deniers and raised questions about who carried out the Sept. 11 attacks in a tense showdown Monday at Columbia University where the school’s head introduced the visitor by calling him a “petty and cruel dictator.”
Ahmadinejad, appearing shaken by what he called “insults” from his host, sought to portray himself as an intellectual and argued that his regime had respect for reason and science. But the former engineering professor soon found himself drawn into the type of rhetoric that has alienated American audiences in the past.
He provoked derisive laughter by responding to a question about Iran’s execution of homosexuals by saying: “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country … I don’t know who’s told you that we have this.”
At times, however, he drew audience applause, such as when he bemoaned the plight of the Palestinians.
But his first stab was at Columbia’s president, Lee Bollinger, who said in his introduction of Ahmadinejad: “Mr. President, you exhibit all the signs of a petty and cruel dictator.”
Ahmadinejad said Bollinger’s opening was “an insult to information and the knowledge of the audience here.”
“There were insults and claims that were incorrect, regretfully,” Ahmadinejad added, accusing Bollinger of falling under the influence of the hostile U.S. press and politicians.
Appearing agitated at times, Iran’s president often declined to offer the simple answers the audience sought, responding instead with his own questions or long discussions about history and justice.
Bollinger opened by aggressively taking on Ahmadinejad’s past statements about the Holocaust.
“In a December 2005 state television broadcast, you described the Holocaust as the fabricated legend,” he said. “One year later, you held a two-day conference of Holocaust deniers.”
Bollinger said that might fool the illiterate and ignorant.
“When you come to a place like this, it makes you simply ridiculous. The truth is that the Holocaust is the most documented event in human history,” he said.
Ahmadinejad denied he had questioned the existence of the Holocaust.
“Granted this happened, what does it have to do with the Palestinian people?” he said.
But Ahmadinejad went on to say that he was defending the rights of European scholars, an apparent reference to a small number who have been prosecuted under national laws for denying or minimizing the Holocaust.
“There’s nothing known as absolute,” he said.
Asked why he had asked to visit the World Trade Center site — a request denied by New York authorities — Ahmadinejad said he wanted to express sympathy for the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Then he appeared to question whether al-Qaida was responsible, saying more research was needed.
“If the root causes of 9/11 are examined properly — why it happened, what caused it, what were the conditions that led to it, who truly was involved, who was really involved — and put it all together to understand how to prevent the crisis in Iraq, fix the problem in Afghanistan and Iraq combined,” Ahmadinejad said.
Bollinger drew strong criticism for inviting Ahmadinejad to Columbia and had promised tough questions in his introduction. But the stridency of his attack on the Iranian leader took many by surprise.
“You are either brazenly provocative or astonishingly uneducated,” Bollinger told Ahmadinejad about the leader’s Holocaust denial. “Will you cease this outrage?”
Bollinger’s introduction was “very harsh,” said Hamid Dabashi, a professor of Iranian studies at Columbia University.
“Inviting him and then turning around and alienating and insulting an entire nation whose representative this man happens to be is simply inappropriate,” Dabashi said.
In Iran, Ahmadinejad’s appearance at Columbia could be seen on Arabic satellite channels and state television’s Arabic-language service, but it did not appear on channels that broadcast in Farsi, the language of Iran.
During his prepared remarks, the Iranian president did not address Bollinger’s accusations directly, instead launching into quotes with the Quran and criticism of the Bush administration and past American governments, from warrant-less wiretapping to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.
He said the Holocaust has been abused as a justification for Israeli mistreatment of the Palestinians.
“Why is it that the Palestinian people are paying the price for an event they had nothing to do with?” Ahmadinejad asked.
He closed his prepared remarks with a terse smile, to applause and boos, before taking questions from the audience.
Ahmadinejad claimed women have tremendous rights in Iran and insisted his country does not believe in nuclear weapons.
Asked about his country’s nuclear intentions, he insisted the program is peaceful, legal and entirely within Iran’s rights, despite attempts by “monopolistic,” “selfish” powers to derail it. “How come is it that you have that right, and we can’t have it?” he added.
President Bush said Ahmadinejad’s appearance at Columbia “speaks volumes about, really, the greatness of America.”
He told Fox News Channel that if Bollinger considered Ahmadinejad’s visit an educational experience for Columbia students, “I guess it’s OK with me.”
But conservatives on Capitol Hill were critical. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, said he thought the invitation to Ahmadinejad was a mistake “because he comes literally with blood on his hands.”
Thousands of people jammed two blocks of 47th Street across from the United Nations to protest Ahmadinejad’s visit to New York for the opening of the U.N. General Assembly session. Organizers claimed a turnout of tens of thousands. Police did not immediately have a crowd estimate.
The speakers, most of them politicians and officials from Jewish organizations, proclaimed their support for Israel and criticized the Iranian leader for his remarks questioning the Holocaust.
“We’re here today to send a message that there is never a reason to give a hatemonger an open stage,” New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said.
Hundreds of protesters also assembled at Columbia. Dozens stood near the lecture hall where Ahmadinejad was scheduled to speak, linking arms and singing traditional Jewish folk songs about peace and brotherhood. A two-person band nearby played “You Are My Sunshine.”
Signs in the crowd displayed a range of messages, including one reading: “We refuse to choose between Islamic fundamentalism and American imperialism.”

Associated Press writers Karen Matthews and Aaron Clark contributed to this report.

The voice of EVIL Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is just that. He denies the Holocaust, then turns around and says that it happened…then turns around and says nothing is an absolute. This man is a man who is searching for something to say that would resonate with the people, and he can’t find it…..and in the process he keeps interjecting his ideology of death and mayhem, and forcing it on the American people…..and we are letting him do it.

He is a sponsor of Terrorism. He is an advocate of the Destruction of our staunch ally Israel. He is an advocate of the Destruction of our way of life. So there are some questions: Is this healthy for this country? No it isn’t. Is this kind of thing healthy for our society? NO it isn’t. But, the liberals are pushing their agenda, and we are being whimpy and letting them do it. When are we going to stand up against this tyranny, and stop it? I hope soon…..I really hope soon. The future of this country depends on it.

Hillary’s Health Care plan, and what she doesn’t want you to know.


Listening to Hillary Clinton describing her idea for a national health care program sounds like a good idea, and that is why a lot of people seem to be for it…..but to know just what this health care plan entails, you have to know everything and a lot of what is involved are things that Mrs. Clinton does NOT want you to know. Like what the program will actually cost. And what it means for people who do not want insurance.

You have to know, that among the numbers that she is always touting as people who are uninsured, even though she doesn’t let you know this, are people who are healthy and do not want health insurance.

For instance, I have always been very healthy all my life and I have never had life insurance because I haven’t felt that it was needed or wanted for that matter. Hillary’s plan would take my decision on that out of my hands, making it required that I have said health insurance, whether I wanted it or not. That is one of the things that Hellary is leaving out.

Here is a story that I found that tells the whole dark side of what Hillary’s plan would shove on the American public and the things she is keeping quiet because she knows that the American public would not go for it……(another example of the politicians not listening to us or wanting to listen to us.)


THE DARK SIDE OF HILLARY CLINTON’S HEALTH CARE PLAN
By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN

Published on FoxNews.com on September 20, 2007.

The public face of Hillary Clinton’s new health care plan is sunny, filled with choices for consumers and bright with promises for better health care for all. But a close examination of the proposal alongside other initiatives of Sen. Clinton in the past few years reveals a dark side she wants to hide from public view until after the election is over.

In her program, she speaks of how health care is the right of every “American” � but she has a rather expansive definition of “American.” In 2005, Hillary co-sponsored legislation in the United States Senate to offer free health insurance, under the State Child Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) to the children of illegal immigrants who have lived in the United States for five years. So, those who have dodged the immigration cops for five years successfully would be rewarded not only with legal status and a path to citizenship, but with immediate free health care for their children.

Indeed, when Democrats and liberals speak of the 50,000,000 uninsured Americans, more than one fifth of those are illegal immigrants. Thus, about one in five of the beneficiaries of her program for universal health insurance are illegal aliens. (Illegal immigrants are a disproportionately large segment of the uninsured population because legal immigrants and citizens who live in poverty are eligible for Medicaid, but illegal immigrants are not.)

Would Americans like to reward those whose only connection to our country is that they flouted our laws to come here with free health insurance for themselves and their children? Doubtless Hillary knows the answer is no, so she is determined to hide that aspect of her plan from the public.

Hillary speaks of the importance of stopping health insurance companies from raising premiums on those who are sick. But she does not mention the inevitable flip side of her proposal � to raise premiums on those who are well. On the one hand, she would cover all those with chronic conditions with low cost health insurance and, on the other, would stop insurance companies from “cherry picking” healthy and young people for their insurance plans. The net effect would be a major increase in health insurance premiums for the vast majority of Americans.

In effect, her plan would turn “insurance” into “subsidy.” The concept of insurance is that one pays a relatively low premium to guard against catastrophic expenses that are outside of our ability to meet financially. But Hillary’s program would really be nothing more than a cash transfer from the healthy to the sick, not an insurance program at all.

Hillary says that her program would provide “universal” coverage for all. In order to achieve universality, one must make the program compulsory. The bulk of the uninsured do not want to have to pay for insurance. They are healthy and don’t want the added burden of health insurance. That is why about half of those who are eligible for free or low cost insurance under the State Child Health Insurance Program have not signed up. Their parents don’t want to.

So Hillary’s program, as she freely admits, would require health insurance as a pre-condition of employment. Not having health insurance would be a violation just as driving a car without automobile insurance is illegal. The resulting coercion would force millions to pay for coverage they do not want and feel they don’t need. But to pay for her national program, Hillary needs everyone to be covered so she can use their revenues to subsidize the coverage of those who are ill.

But the main defect of Hillary’s program is that it leaves out any attempt at cost control. With health care absorbing 16 percent of our economy, Bill Clinton’s warnings of economic disaster if its share of our national income passed 12 percent back in 1993 sound almost quaint today. Cost control is a vital part of any plan for universal coverage. Indeed, without it, extending coverage just offers a blank check to patients and providers which would drive even higher the share of our economy that goes to health care.

It was Hillary herself who explained this concept to Dick in 1993. The reality has not changed. Hillary will be forced to control costs as the implicit and vital element of any health care reform. This control of costs belies her contention that she would leave the health care system untouched except to extend coverage to those who now lack it. Because she would need to limit utilization and lower costs, she would be forced to ration health care and to impose government mandated and controlled managed care on all Americans.

For the first time, the word “no” would come into our system. Do you need open heart surgery? Are you a poor risk because of smoking or diabetes or age? No longer would the bureaucrat at the other end of the phone say “we won’t pay for it” or “you don’t need it” or “we can’t fit you in at our facility.” The answer would simply be no � even if you pay for it yourself, you may not have one. It is this type of coercion that drives Canadians over the border to the U.S. in search of medical options denied them at home under their socialized medical structure. Now it would operate on both sides of the border.

Finally, Hillary seeks to finance the system by ending tax breaks for the wealthy, by which she means any household with $250,000 or more in income. Never mind that she has spent that money several times over. But why use income taxes to finance her system? Why not do what Democrats and Republicans are now pushing in Congress � to finance it by raising cigarette taxes? That way we get a double impact: higher tobacco prices cut smoking, particularly among teenagers, and reduce health costs and the revenues pay for her expansion of the system. The current Congress is passing legislation to raise cigarette taxes 61 cents per pack to pay for a $35 billion expansion of the State Child Health Insurance Program. Why not raise them $2 per pack to raise the $110 billion Hillary says her health care proposal will need?

In selling her program, Hillary seems to imply that she was under the hypnotic control of her advisers (presumably Ira Magaziner) in 1993 when she designed her previous health care reform. Now she says she is in charge. “I’m the decision maker now,” she told The New York Times. “I have a plan that is 100 percent my plan.” But what was the 1993 initiative but her plan, concocted in secret and foisted in toto on a Congress which wouldn’t pass it?

Now she says she would not “have approached [health care reform] in the same way” as she did in 1993. Now she will be informed by “a greater dose of humility and empathy and understanding of what it takes to get things done in our political system.”

That and a determination to conceal the true implications of her proposal until after she is elected.


Now I hope that this post clears some of this up for you…..and I hope that it lets you know just what this woman is all about. Her ideals do not bide well for the United States, and as long as she keeps feeling the way she does, the United States is in for some unnecessarily hard times because of it, if we elect her president. If you think that she has good ideas, then look them up. Dig into them, and see if there are things in those ideas that she doesn’t want you to know. Chances are, you will always find something in there that is bad for America or Americans.

As I have said before…….Liberals want all the power…


The latest from the wires of news comes out of New Mexico, where presidential hopeful Bill Richardson has decried a new federal program for the protection of a certain people. He says that fat people need to be protected by the federal government. People, what is next? Tiny animals because they are not big enough to protect themselves against bigger predators? Can’t you people see where this whole mentality is going to lead us?

Here is part of the story from the ABC news wires…..:

Richardson: Obese Americans Need Federal Protection

September 19, 2007 12:16 PM

ABC News’ Teddy Davis and Nancy Flores Report: Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson called Wednesday for obese Americans to be brought under the protection of the Americans for Disabilities Act.
“This is an issue of basic civil rights,” said Richardson. “There are no federal laws that protect obese Americans from discrimination in the workplace, school, or anywhere else. This must change.”
Asked how the A.D.A. would distinguish between obese Americans deserving of protection and merely overweight Americans, the New Mexico governor said he would defer such questions to specialists.
“Look, I’d let scientists determine that — nutritionists — you gotta be flexible. But it’s important to have obesity and somebody’s overweight not used as an excuse for discrimination,” Richardson told ABC News. “But I’d let scientists, nutritionists determine that.”

Now granted, there are people who are so obese that they do need help, but to tax the American people for someone who could possibly help themselves if they would take the steps needed to help themselves……but, the liberal mindset here, that the government owes us everything is getting out of hand….and this latest attempt by Bill Richardson is just another example. And this has to stop. We as a nation cannot afford to continue to pay for these massive government programs to help everyone. I hope that you all realize that all the money that the government uses to do these things comes out of your pockets. They pull in another program like this one that Bill Richardson wants and it costs a lot of money, and it isn’t their money that they are proposing to spend here. It is ours. And when this program becomes law, in order to pay for it, our taxes will be raised to pay for the costs. We let this kind of thinking continue folks, and our taxes are going to keep going up till we have nothing left for ourselves! And our government doesn’t care about how much we have, just so long as they get what they think that they need to run….and keep their cushy lifestyles going.

I for one do not want this to continue. For if it does, they will tax us as a nation right of of existence, and that has been done before. Do we want this for our country? I don’t.

Today is the 6th Anniversary of the attack….


Today is the sixth anniversary of the “cowardly attack” on the twin towers in New York City. That day started out like any other day here in the United States. I remember where I was on that day. I was living in Anderson, Indiana at the time, and I remember getting up to go to work, at my new job at Quality Printing on Broadway St.

It was a busy day, until the news report came in saying that some kind of plane had hit one of the trade center towers in New York City. I remember within the next few hours, the president was on the airwaves, letting us all know that the second tower had been hit, and throughout that day we learned more and more till we were for sure that we had been attacked, reminescint of December 7th, of 1941, except this time, many more people died needlessly, and many more died trying to save the people who were trapped. It was a day in infamy, and a day of great cowardace, by the people who attacked us, and great courage, from ordinary citizens who flocked to New York City to help with the rescue efforts.

That was six years ago, and now we are facing another threat, that our government is all but ignoring, and we are going to find out soon that if we do not stop the stupidity that is going on in our government today, that attack that galvanized this nation six years ago, is going to happen again…….

Today, I did a radio show on Blog Talk Radio, about the attack, and about what the government is doing to us now. From the illegal immigration problem to the war on terror. Unfortunately it didn’t work too well, and I had to delete it. I will do better on my next show, which should be on Saturday. I promise.

Tuesday is the sixth anniversary of 9/11


On tuesday, we are having the sixth anniversary of the cowardly attack on the United States in New York City, Washington D.C., and the end of another in a field in Pennsylvania. With the coming of that anniversary, as with a bunch before, the Terrorist cells around the world and in Iraq and Afghanistan, have started to chatter about what is coming. And of course none of it is good for us. SITE Institute in Washington D.C. monitors what the terrorists around the world are saying and there is a lot that they are bringing in now…..and during this time of turmoil….we have had twenty school buses in Houston stolen! And I for one have not heard much about it in the mainstream media. I think this is strange…even for the looney left of this country, because when it comes to our children’s safety, there is nothing more important to keep…..but this, seems to be a threat and I will tell you why.

Before 9/11/2001, no one had any idea that terrorists or anyone else for that matter would attack the United States and bring down our two tallest buildings with Jet Airlines! And even so, we knew that the terrorists were doing something with planes.

That being said, we have those twenty school buses stolen and no one seems to be concerned. Well, I am, because I look back on September 11th, and see the towers coming down…and I think that maybe…….just maybe the buses could be a precursor for the next attack….using our children as it’s target.

Is this far fetched? Maybe. Is this just speculation? To be sure…. Is it possible that it could happen? Yes! And that is all the reason that I need to look into this, but no one will….at least not from the Liberal standpoint because in their eyes, this war is Bush’s War and because of that nothing is going to be done unless, something bad happens….then it will happen with a lot of finger pointing at President Bush for another failure of his presidency, giving them another reason to bring up that the war has to end and the troops need to be brought home.

Today’s Liberals way of thinking is, Surrender, surrender, quit, surrender. They can not think any other way. The democrats used to get it…..but not anymore. If the “happening”, like the war on terror, takes time or is harder than a first grade test……then, they want nothing to do with it.

Starting on tuesday, I will be doing radio….on Blog Talk Radio, and there is going to be a link here if you wish to hear my first program. I figured that it would be much easier to do that, than always typing such big posts here, and it will also save my space here and bandwidth too.

I have named the inaugural program The coming day : Why does the left ignore all the clues. Tune in and listen. It is going to be a blast. When I get going on this, I will be able to take phone calls from callers just like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Neal Boortz do on their shows. The first show is going to be all me, and when I get it going, the show will be up to 2 hours long so I can then have the format that Rush and the others have, where phone calls are taken.

Will keep you posted with my blog, and don’t worry….I am not going to stop this with the advent of my show. The radio show will just be an addition to this, for the people who do not have the time to sit at the computer….they can just listen.

It’s going to be a hoot.

I HAVE asked this before……ARE WE FREAKING NUTS???


What's My Google PageRank?

I just read a post written by Chuck Muth, and I have to agree with everything that he said. First….here is the post…word for word…..:

Fighting a War with Soccer Balls
By Chuck Muth
September 2, 2007

Gen. David Patraeus’ report on military operations in Iraq is due this month, but many have already made up their minds that it’s time to pull the plug. And I’m not just talking about anti-war dope-smoking hippies and Democrats in Congress. But perhaps I’m repeating myself.

The fact is America hasn’t fought an all-out war to win since we dropped the Big One on Japan to bring World War II to an end. We fought Korea to a stalemate, and lost in Vietnam. We pulled up short of outright victory in the first Gulf War, allowing Saddam and his minions to live to fight another day. And that other day is today.

As the enemy continues to shoot down and blow up American military personnel, along with innocent civilians, our soldiers and our allies are forced to fight a politically correct war with one, and often both hands tied behind their backs. Call it “compassionate combat,” brought to you by our “compassionate conservative” American president. (And our compassionate Politically Correct democratic Congress and Senate!)

It goes kinda like this: Johnny Jihadi blows up an American convoy or shoots at American soldiers. Johnny J runs away. GI Joe pursues Johnny J. Johnny J runs into a mosque. GI Joe, thanks to the politically correct “rules of engagement” (ROE) he’s forced to fight under, gives up the chase and let’s Johnny J get away. To fight another day. To kill more Americans and more innocent civilians. That’s infuriating.

It’s as if we’re playing a game of tag on the playground, where you’re “safe” from being tagged “it” if you reach home “base.” But this is no game; it’s war. And there should be no safe base in war. If Johnny Jihadi runs into a mosque…bye-bye mosque, baby! No apology necessary.

Yet our military last week was reduced to apologizing for…soccer balls.

What? You missed this story?

“The U.S. military regrets any offense it may have caused by handing out a soccer ball emblazoned with the name of Allah on it as part of a public relations exercise in Afghanistan,” according to an Associated Press story out of Kabul on 28 August. “At least one of the balls – which were dropped by helicopter to children in Khost province in eastern Afghanistan – carried a small picture of the Saudi Arabian flag. The flag features in Arabic script the Islamic declaration of faith, which contains the words Allah and the Prophet Muhammed. . . . Most (Muslims) would find the idea of kicking a ball emblazoned with those two names deeply offensive.”

Indeed, the AP reports that villagers, the target of this “winning the hearts and minds” PR gesture, were “upset and angry.”

Oh, puh-lease. Such Muslim hyper-sensitivity over a good-will gesture is ridiculous. Nevertheless, the most powerful military on earth was reduced to groveling for forgiveness. “We regret any disturbance that was caused in this case,” said military spokesman Sgt. Dean Welch. “If we hurt one person, this is one too many.”

Are you kidding me? It’s bad enough when military lawyers handcuff our soldiers’ ability to hurt or kill the enemy when he runs into a mosque, but when the brass starts regretting “disturbances” which might have hurt somebody’s FEELINGS, something is seriously wrong with this picture.

If our troops aren’t allowed to kill the enemy wherever he runs without worrying about hurting somebody’s feelings, then no matter what Gen. Patraeus says in his report, we’re doomed to failure and might as well throw in the towel. If we’re not going to let our soldiers fight with everything they’ve got, and fight to win, then we shouldn’t be sending them at all. Enough is enough.

Soccer balls, indeed

I repeat. Soccer balls, indeed! The politically correct crowd has all but destroyed any chance that we as a nation have to save face and win this war that we have to win for our national security and our nations future. Are we freaking nuts?

I have said this before people, but the politically correct crowd and the liberals, and the ones that do not have the backbone strong enough to support our troops and let them get the job done in Iraq are the ones that are destroying our country, and what she stands for.

Why send troops into battle, when they are not allowed to shoot anyone who is shooting at them if they are in a Mosque or something. This kind of thinking is totally insane, and tends to get our brave soldiers killed. Of course, that is what the left in this country want so they have more fodder to fill their anti-war, anti-American cannons with.

When we throw in the crap that people like Jack Murtha says about “our troops killing and murdering in cold blood,” and John Kerry saying that they “are killing women and children in the dead of night,” it does things to the abilities of our soldiers to stay alive. And if you can’t see this, then let me explain…….

Our soldiers are in a life and death situation over there. Their life, and the lives of their comrads depends on split second decisionmaking in dangerous situations. When their decisions are questioned by arm-chair quarterbacks such as Murtha, Kennedy, Kerry, Palosi, Durbin and others, then the result is, our troops stopping for a split second, wondering if what they are about to do to save their lives and the lives around them is worth the trouble that the United States government is going to give them in the near future for these acts. When they hesitate and think about it, they will get shot and killed by the enemy, who by the way, isn’t thinking about the trouble they may get into because they do not care about this stupid crap. They are in a war, as wrong as their ideals may be, they are in a war, and our soldiers are the enemy, and they are going to kill them anyway they can. They will kill from Mosques. They will kill with children around. They will kill with any means that will make our soldiers hesitate. And idiots like the Liberal Left and the liberal press in this country are helping the enemy with every accusation they make against our troops.

But I have an idea! Why don’t these liberals support our country for once, and support our troops? It isn’t that hard to do,…..that is if you really love this country. Something, I really seriously doubt.

God bless the good ole U.S. of A. God bless our soldiers and their mission.

America in a Giant Bird Cage?


What's My Google PageRank?

I look back over the years, and remember my dad saying things like “A bird in a cage is safe, but it isn’t free.” I was reading a post that is on my Conservative Group on Yahoo today, and saw that same quote on one of the posts about the creation of HR 1, the first bill passed by the Palosi house, “Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act.” Now I do not know about you, but in ways, this bill disturbs me.

There are a lot of questions that go with this bill. Does this bill really make us safer? Is our supposed increased safety really worth the price that we have to pay in the loss of freedoms that we ALL will lose if this bill passes into law? Now granted, those are just two….but here are the answers. “Maybe, just a little….”and “NO!” Here is the article that was quoted on that post, with some emphasis’s put in with bold italic and underlined lettering:


H.R. 1 PUTS AMERICA IN A GIANT BIRD CAGE

By Pastor Chuck Baldwin January 12, 2007 NewsWithViews.com

The very first bill passed by the House of Representatives this year was H.R. 1
named, “Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act.” The vote was 299
Ayes, with 68 Republicans voting with the majority, and
128 Noes.

Drafted by the 9/11 Commission following the terrorist attacks on Washington,
D.C., and New York City, the report proffered 41 recommendations to the federal
government ostensibly for the purpose of making the United States more secure
against future terrorist attack. The implementation of this report was new House
Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s first priority for the 110th Congress. She succeeded. The
House of Representatives easily passed it. The Senate is expected to do the
same, and President Bush will doubtless sign it into law. But what, exactly,
does this bill accomplish? Does it make America more secure? And if so, at what
cost?

I well remember my father telling me, “A bird in a cage is safe, but it is not
free.” That proverb pretty much summarizes H.R. 1. When fully implemented, the
new law will create a federal police leviathan that will place the American
people into a giant bird cage.

As many have already observed, a close analysis of the 9/11 report reveals the
creation of Homeland Security identity checkpoints on America’s roads and
highways. Mandatory biometric iris and finger scanning systems at all American
airports and seaports. The creation of a national I.D. card. The expansion of
“no-fly” and “watch” lists. The implementation of special screening for all
airline passengers, which paves the way for invasive body scanners. The federal
takeover of publicly owned communications networks and increased government
surveillance of Americans’ financial records and activities.

In addition, H.R. 1 mandates that America becomes increasingly meddlesome in the
internal affairs of foreign nations, thereby pushing the United States further
down the road of international governance. For example, one recommendation
requires that the U.S. “defends Muslims against tyrants and criminals . . .”

Of course, nowhere in the 9/11 Commission Report is there a call to defend
Christians against tyrants and criminals.
And the truth is, the most rampant and
bloodthirsty acts of tyranny and criminality are committed against Christians.

In The Sudan alone, Marxist and Muslim warriors have tortured, murdered, and enslaved more than two million people, mostly Christians, over the past twenty
years. However, their suffering is mostly ignored by the international community
and by our own government.

Yet, back to the issue. How many nations must we invade and how many governments
must we overthrow in order to “defend Muslims”? Furthermore, are we also
obligated to defend Buddhists and Shintoists?

Another recommendation wants the United States to “generously [support] a new
International Youth Opportunity Fund”
for the purpose of “building and operating
primary and secondary schools in . . . Muslim states . . .”
How many billions
and even trillions of taxpayer dollars will be required to build and operate
Muslim schools?
Schools that will no doubt teach Muslim doctrine. There is
certainly no shrill cry against the separation of Mosque and state heard here
,
Martha.

Yet another recommendation requires “global border security” using “extensive
international cooperation.”
What the heck is this all about? What, pray tell, is
“global border security”? Does this mean using foreign troops to guard our
borders?

Are we supposed to believe that our own National Guard and Border Patrol are
unable to protect our borders, and, therefore, we need foreign troops to do the
job? Balderdash! The fact is, the Bush administration simply does not allow our
forces to protect our borders. Perhaps this recommendation in the 9/11
Commission Report helps explain why.

Still another recommendation requires the federal government to “set standards
for the issuance of birth certificates and sources of identification, such as
drivers licenses
.” In other words, a national, or maybe even international, I.D.
card or computer chip.

One of the most egregiously extreme recommendations of the 9/11 Commission
Report is this next one. Without specifically naming it, this recommendation
calls for the implementation of President Bill Clinton’s former Deputy Secretary
of State Strobe Talbott’s brainchild. It is called Continuity of Government
(COG). COG has strong support from many notables such as former GOP Senate Whip
Alan Simpson, Clinton’s former Secretary of HHS Donna Shalala, former House
Speakers Democrat Tom Foley and Republican Newt Gingrich, former GOP Minority
Leader Robert Michel, and Kweisi Mfume, President and CEO of the NAACP.

In a nutshell, proponents of COG envision a terrorist attack that would
precipitate the suspension of the U.S. Constitution. Specifically, COG would
authorize Congress to appoint its own members, including those in state
legislatures, without a vote of the people. COG even envisions the enactment of
such authority for reasons of “incapacitation” (whatever that is) even if no
emergency exists.

As one should easily be able to see, the passage of H.R. 1 simply continues the
policies of both Democrat and Republican administrations to put the bird in its
cage. Of course, the bird is the American people and the cage is a national,
even international, curtain of total control.

Aldous Huxley called it a “Brave New World.” George Orwell outlined it in his
book “1984.” Bible theologians call it the “Revived Roman Empire.” Whatever one
calls it, both George W. Bush and the Democrats in Congress are pushing hard and
fast to implement it. And unless the American people offer the strongest
resistance quickly and loudly, our children and grandchildren will find the cage
locked shut with no chance of escape.

The American people need to heed the warning of Winston Churchill who said, “If
you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if
you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may
come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and
only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have
to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than
to live as slaves.”

America, are you listening?

Yes….I have to agree with that last part. Winston Churchill had it right when he said, “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Is that the life that you want? Do you want to live as slaves, or as free people? For this reason alone I say, This war on terror is one we HAVE to win. There is no room for debate on this one. If we do as the Democrats, Liberals and whimpy Republicans want, and pull out of Iraq, we WILL end up fighting again….and soon. We will end up fighting for our very existance! We do not have the right to just say, ‘we will stay here free and unemcumbered by the world.’ That will not happen! That right has to be won in battle, sad as that is, because there WILL always be tyrants in the world, like Ahmadinejad, and Saddam and Hitler. No matter what century you live in, there will always be tyrants, whose only goal in life is to make EVERYONE live under their rules and their reign.

Mark my words people. We are heading for a firestorm of a fight, right here in the good ole U.S.A., if we do not start being serious, and start letting our soldiers fight this war to win. Because without a victory there folks, we will be assured a long and costly fight……HERE!
