Ohio Voters: Vote No on 2009 Issues 1, 2, and 3

I concur with fellow blogger Matt's recent post of the Ohio Freedom Alliance's informative recommendations concerning the statewide ballot issues 1, 2 and 3.

Enough of increasing deficit spending (Issue #1), expanding big-government bureaucracy (Issue#2), and encouraging incorrigible immoral behavior and get-rich-schemes (Issue #3).


Although I would love to see the military veterans of the Middle East Conflict ear receive honor and benefits, it should not be with funds that we do not have. Ohio is currently struggling to balance its bloated budget. Why in the world would we add to our financial woes?

We have already incurred far too much debt on all levels of government: federal, state and local. Why should the Ohio state government be excused from creating and living within a budget, like many other citizens must?
Voting a regrettable NO on Issue One.

It is to the farmer's advantage to treat their animals well. After all, they are an investment. Just as some people treat their property well, and others neglect it, animals are considered to be property. I cannot get excited about the alleged maltreatment or less than optimal treatment of animals, when thousands upon thousands of Ohio babies are being painfully and ingloriously exterminated regularly. Even the United Methodist minister turned Governor advocates this American atrocity, this Holocaust.

If Ohio Gov. Strychnine addresses the willful slaughter of innocent human beings at the hands of the heinous abortionists, maybe then I would consider initiatives to improve the care of cows and chickens. We as a state and nation have our priorities screwed up.

Furthermore, why institutionalize such a relatively unimportant matter as the care of animals when we permit the wholesale annihilation of fellow human beings via abortion and even former Illinois State Senator Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama's strong support of infanticide?

The only thing that causes me to hesitate on this issue is the fact that animal rights organizations such as humane societies, environmental extremists and vegans all oppose this initiative.

This is a reserved NO vote. here

The most obvious - dah - negative vote of the three statewide issues is Issue Three - the expansion of gambling - permitting casinos in four major metropolitan markets. Through a constitutional initiative we are authorizing the institutionalization and the expansion of gambling in Ohio. Wasn't the Ohio Lottery supposed to save the schools? It hasn't, they have gotten worse and the funding need is still there. The voters in this state have repeatedly rejected the idea of casinos. However, the greed and guile of the gambling interests never give up. Dan Gilbert and the other gambling proponents care more about money than morality or what it does to their fellow man.

A resounding NO to issue three!

A Blithering, Dithering President

Hickory, dickory darn it, the President ran up the deficit . . .

Blithering – In the United Kingdom the word is used to express annoyance with and contempt for somebody or something. By his irresponsible and morally deficient and fiscally unsound policies and actions these past 9 months the President clearly demonstrates his hatred for America and all the values and virtues for which it stands. He trots around the global bad-mouthing the U.S. and its ideals despite all the good she has done on behalf of the oppressed and poor around the world.

He is bought by and paid for and thereby obligated to special interests including the likes of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, ACORN, and the ‘premier’ homosexual advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign. He espouses their vile agendas at the cost of morality, family values and the sanctity of human life.

Obama can’t make up his mind


Dithering – is the word that Vice President Dick Cheney used to describe President Barry Soetoro alias Barack Obama’s hesitation to make the tough decision regarding sending additional troops to fight the war on terror in Afghanistan. It is a word that means nervously confused indecisiveness in the face of alternative possible actions. The President cannot make up his mind as to what to do in Afghanistan. Dose he listen to his generals? Or does listen to hapless Joe Biden and the leftist in his cabinet and entourage? He is indecisive. He is inexperienced. He is ineffective. America suffers as a result.


Not only is this President inexperienced. He is inept. America is slowly being strangled by its blithering, dithering President. The President may even be a man who is not a natural born American. He is hiding something. He has spent a million dollars in attorny fees to protect his past from public exposure. What is he hiding? The media is complicit and unwilling to shine the light of inquiry on his credentials, which they did not hesitate to do with the GOP candidates for President or Vice President in the 2008 election.

Is Kevin Jennings Really the Porn Czar?

“Its has been learned that President (Soetoro a/k/a) Obama’s ‘Safe Schools’ czar, Kevin Jennings, once helped fund an anti-Christian, (homosexual) porn exhibit.

“Not surprisingly, the White House just made Jennings their ‘Art’ czar as well!”

The Right Way to Amend the Constitution, part 16

This is part sixteen of an ongoing series of articles containing proposals for amendments to the Constitution. For someone who claims so fervently to be a “Constitutionalist”, how is it that I can be so eager to change the Constitution? Well, there are several reasons. For one thing, I believe that after the Bill of Rights, much damage was done by some of the amendments that were added and the legitimacy of some of their ratifications are questionable. Secondly, the Constitution has been violated so much that the necessity of further amendments is needed to resolve the resulting problems. But this should be done extremely cautiously. These amendments are extremely unlikely to ever be introduced, much less ratified, but hey, I can dream, can’t I?

The title for this week’s proposed article of amendment (subject to revision) is TheDownsize D.C.” Amendment, the text of which follows:

Section 1: The citizens of the District shall be included among the population of a State in the next Census following the ratification of this article.

Section 2: The twenty-third amendment to this Constitution is hereby repealed.

Section 3: The mayor, city council, and all other legislative and executive offices of power within the city of the constituting the seat of Government of the United States shall be dissolved.

Section 4: The District shall be annexed into the State referred to in section 1, except for needful buildings lawfully under the control of the United States.

Section 5: No Person shall take up permanent residence within the District after the annexation.

Section 6: If this article of amendment is ratified by the State of Maryland, then the State referred to in section 1 shall be Maryland. If this article of amendment is not ratified by the state of Maryland, but is ratified by the State of Virginia, then the State referred to in section 1 shall be Virginia. If this article of amendment is not ratified by either Maryland or Virginia, then this entire article shall be inoperable.

Section 7: Sections 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 shall take effect upon completion of the next Census following the ratification of this article.

Section 8: Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Commentary on this proposed amendment:

It isn’t right that some citizens of the United States should not be represented in Congress, but Washington D.C. should not have the rights of a state (including having Presidential Electors). One reason for this is because states have the right to secede. If the District seceded, then there would no longer be a Seat of Government. Another reason is that the population of D.C. is now smaller than that of the least populous state (Alaska). They also couldn’t be founded as other states were without a Constitutional amendment because their limited sovereignty (see below) is written into the Constitution.

George Washington made a deal with Alexander Hamilton to expand the size of D.C. so that Washington’s property would be contained in it. In exchange, Hamilton got a Central Bank. This was a bad deal on both ends for Americans.

Most of the Founders never intended that ordinary citizens would take up permanent residence in the District. If they do, they have no constitutional right to self-government (except to vote for 3 Presidential Electors, as stated in the 23rd amendment), but should be governed solely by Congress. Congress cannot properly abdicate their authority to a city government. All of the complaining about the sovereignty of D.C. ignores the Constitution. Article I, section 8, clause 16 makes it clear:

The Congress shall have Power… To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District… the Seat of the Government of the United States

In fact, the only reason why we even need a Constitutional amendment for this is because the 23rd amendment needs to be repealed. The rest of it could just be passed through by Congress and either the state of Maryland or Virginia.

Let’s get the residents of D.C. out of the mess that they’re in and get them into an existing state so that they can have the same rights as all other Americans without ignoring the Constitution or further damaging the Republic. We need to move quickly on this in order to get it done before the 2010 Census.

Global Blasphemy Resolution

The U.N. Convention on the Rights of a Child was scary enough, now this. The Organization of the Islamic Conference has submitted a resolution to the U.N. that would make it a crime to speak out against Islam in any U.N. member country. If you want to sign the petition to U.N. to tell them to not to pass this resolution, click here. But as for me, I think that the real solution is to get out of the U.N., now! This wicked resolution just may be our chance to get Congress on board with this. The bill to get the U.S. out of the U.N. is H.R.1146. Contact your congressman and ask him/her to cosponsor it by clicking here. Read more about the Global Blasphemy Resolution here.

No, No, and No on Ohio Issues 1, 2, and 3

Ohio Freedom Alliance Newsletter, 10.27.09

Pre-election Edition

Election day is only a week away, on Tuesday, November 3. See below for information on the 3 statewide ballot issues that would amend the Ohio Constitution. The Ohio Constitution is a document created for the purpose of protecting the liberty of all Ohioans. Before we consider changing this document, let us always be sure that we are voting to protect liberty!

Vote NO on Issue 1: Debt for Veterans' Benefits

Issue 1. A proposed constitutional amendment to authorize the state to issue $200 million of bonds to provide compensation to veterans of the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

From Andy Meyers, military veteran and OFA Defense Policy Analyst: "As a veteran of The Persian Gulf War and understanding the good intent of Issue 1, borrowing approximately $294 million (with interest according to OBM) to pay cash bonuses to veterans of the Middle East conflicts does not make sound financial sense. As insensitive as some may think this is, I can assure you it is not. The Department of Veterans Benefits already has numerous programs to help veterans and their families transition into civilian life such as loans for housing, GI Bill, vocational training and survivors benefits to name just a few. I was one of those veterans who did just that, and I appreciated the assistance I received from those programs that are already established. In light of these difficult financial times for our nation, the state of Ohio and its citizens, this proposal would seem inappropriate and fiscally irresponsible at this time. As a veteran who served proudly with honor, and continues serve in a non-military capacity, I will vote NO on Issue 1 and hope my fellow veterans will do the same."

Vote NO on Issue 2: Farm Bureaucracy Creation

Issue 2. A proposed constitutional amendment to create the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board to dictate policy to the farming industry by establishing and implementing standards of care for livestock and poultry.

Many supporters of this issue regard it as the lesser of two evils, and fear that without Issue 2's passage, even more stringent regulations from animal rights groups might be proposed in the future. However, these animal rights groups have already stated that even if Issue 2 does pass, they still plan to pursue more restrictive regulations. Therefore,
Issue 2 will not prevent these future harmful attempts, which we will need to oppose as they are proposed. However, Issue 2 WILL create a panel of unelected bureaucrats with the power to significantly impact agriculture in Ohio, particularly small farmers. Big Agribusiness strongly supports Issue 2, as it will allow big money to influence farm policy, which will almost certainly prove harmful to small farmers and consumer food choices.
Ohio agriculture does not require additional government regulation to continue selling safe products. Creating this panel will only drive up the costs of compliance for farmers, and raise prices for consumers. There are free-market alternatives to this proposed government bureaucracy; groups are already working toward creating a system of voluntary farm standards by which farmers can prove that their treatment of animals is humane.

The Ohio Liberty Council has posted an excellent video from a recent town hall discussion with arguments from both sides of Issue 2. We recommend reviewing the information they present.

Also, big money has been pouring in from special interests and out of state groups to pay for a very costly Yes On Issue 2 campaign. We have pulled some of the data from the SOS website and placed it in a spreadsheet. We recommend looking over the list of contributors to help make a decision about whether this proposed board will protect us from special interests or be controlled by them.

From Clint Ziegler, farmer and OFA Agriculture Policy Analyst: "As a third generation farmer in Ohio, I believe that farm management decisions should remain on the farm, not within an appointed board of livestock "experts". Creating a new bureaucracy to set standards will force many small farms out of business, which will limit consumer choices. Industry standards should not be controlled by government force, but rather by consumers with their wallet. Placing a third party between the consumer and producer will increase the cost of our safe and local food that we already enjoy without a livestock care board. I will vote no on issue 2."

Vote NO on Issue 3: Casino Monopoly

Issue 3. A proposed constitutional amendment to allow casinos in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo.

From Kathleen Jagodnik, OFA Communications Director. "While the I support the right of entrepreneurs to open new businesses, unfortunately Issue 3 involves the state to an unacceptable degree. Issue 3's passage would change the Ohio Constitution so that only these 4 casinos could be built and operated by specific authorized casino operators, thereby granting monopoly power to these operators. Issue 3 would also ban all other casino gaming, including "casino nights" offered by churches, fraternal organizations, and other charities, which would augment these casino operators' monopoly power. I will vote NO on Issue 3. "


"The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitable he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is apt to spread discontent among those who are."

-- H. L. Mencken

Happy voting!

A Gathering of Old Men (1991)

I came across this interesting made-for-TV movie while browsing the shelves of a local library. The movie features a group of blacks, who had grown old in an environment of racial animus. This is a story portraying a group of downtrodden formerly meek and mild bunch of going-with-the-flow people who went along to get along.

The movie took place in the deep South in the 1940s or 1950s. The gist of the story was one young black man shown running from a hateful white farmer driving a tractor. The white man had apparently previously beaten the black man and wanted to “finish him off.” The white man followed the black man to the home of an older black, portrayed by Lou Gossett, Jr. Well as the pursuer was about to corner and apparently shot the pursued, Lou Gossett’s character shot the young white farmer.

What ensued following the shooting was the benevolent female owner (played by Holly Hunter) of the property (former plantation) encouragement of many of the black men on or near her estate to gather at the home of the slaying. She, herself, was going to tell Sheriff Mapes that she killed the belligerent white man. As the dozen and a half old black men gathered, they all were prepared to say that they were the killers. Oh, by the way, they all were instructed to bring shotguns and where encouraged to have fired them before they arrived. This would essentially protect the shooter.

The real point of the movie was that the formerly conforming lot now was willing to take a stand, together. They were united in their opposition to the forces of evil so prevalent in the society of that day. They stood their ground, no matter what the consequences. They were sick and tired of being treated as less than fully human.

In many ways the 18 old black men reminded me of the average American. We have been silent, compliant, conforming for far too long. All around the evil government was growing bolder and making more demands through committing taxpayer funding to every whim or fancy of the big-government agenda. We are becoming slaves, and the government bureaucrats are the plantation owners and masters. We are loosing our freedoms. This has been occurring ever since Ronal Reagan left office . . . under both Republican and Democratic Administrations.

At the Tea Parties and the Town Hall meetings multitudes of average American, fed up with being lied to, of being taken advantage of, of being robbed by their government decided to draw a line in the sand and to make a stand. Sheriff Mapes is Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid represent the repressive government establishment. Anyone, who dares to resist, just like the uppity blacks in A Gathering of Old Men, will be slapped down. Now, more than ever, is the time to resist, to be real men and say no to big government, its freedom robbing policies, its outrageous spending and its insulting patronage.


I rate this movie a **** ½ out of ***** for its clear moral message and guiding principles, its great acting and photograpy. Above all, it is relevant in early 21st Century America just as much (or moreso) at it was in the early 20 century South. The movie is well worth the time you may have to look for it and well worth the cost to rent or to buy it.

Wooster (Ohio) Tea Party, Saturday 10/24/09

(Tea) Party On!

The summer Tea Parties are spilling over into the fall . . . Wooster, Ohio Tea Partiers threw a Tea Party last Saturday. I went out of my way the next day, Sunday, to purchase a (Wooster) Daily Record newspaper. It had a great front page spread about this important event, which is just part of an on-going growing movement. The website had
a good article and an excellent video showing many of creative and pertinent messaged signs that dotted the large crowd in downtown Wooster.

Why Newt Supports RINO Dede Scozzafava

Tea Party Patriot Lisa Miller went to a recent Newt Gingrich book signing to ask him why he supported non-conservative GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava over conservative Doug Hoffman at in light of his affection for the patriotism, courage, persistency and faith that accomplished our freedom and the Founding of our great Nation.


Why would Newt Gingerich and other key Republicans support a RINO Republican in lieu of a real conservative candidate? Is the GOP more pragmatic than principled? Is the GOP more political than patriotic?

Here is a picture of Dede Scozzafava painted by Tea Party Patriot and protestor Lisa Miller in her YouTube video embedded below:

+ She supports the Stimulus package
+ She Supports same-sex marriage
+ She is Pro-Death (“Choice”)
+ She supports Federal Card Check Registration
+ She is a Margaret Sanger (eugenicist and founder of Pro-Death Planned Parenthood) Award winner
+ She is endorsed by Working Families Party (an ally of ACORN)
+ She is endorsed by liberal NY State United Teachers Union
+ Endorsed by the baby-killing machine, Planned Parenthood
+ Endorsed by the leftist blog, Daily Kos

On the other hand, and in stark contrast, Lisa Miller points out what one of her opponents, Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate stands for:

+ He signed the No Pork Pledge
+ He’s Pro-Life
+ He is endorsed by Family Research Council
+ He signed the Anti-Tax Pledge
+ He calls for the defunding of ACORN
+ He signed the 912 Candidates Pledge
+ He is endorsed by Governor Sarah Palin


Newt Gingerich gave a answer to Lisa Miller’s question.

Here's the transcript which was provided by the HotAirPundit blog:

Gingrich: "Lets just start with, she is the nominee of the local party, my bias is to be for the nominee of the local party, and I don't second guess the local party, she has signed a no tax increase pledge, she is endorsed by the National Rifle Association, she has come out against Cap and Trade, [crosstalk] she is opposed to the Obama Health Care plan, she will vote for John Boehner instead of Nancy Pelosi.

All of those things together make her it seems to me, a legitimate, authentic, Republican nominee. In addition, the last poll that came out yesterday, she is well ahead of, and she is much more likely to beat the Democrat than Hoffman because Hoffman doesn't live in the district, he's never won an election in the district, she represents the biggest county in the district, she actually knows the local issues, and Hoffman has says publicly he doesn't know the local issues..

So I just think it is a mistake for the Conservative movement, to think splitting in the special elections is a smart idea, if we give that seat to the Democrats, shame on us...

The evidence is there. Principle takes second place to getting elected. Just like the endorsement of Rick Santorum and President George W. Bush for the liberal RINO, now Democrat Arlen Specter over conservative Pat Toomey in the 2004 GOP Senate race in Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Newt’s endorsement of Scozzafava this flies in the face of the Tea Party Protests and Townhall uprisings of this past summer.

How I Know Barack Hussein Obama is Not a Christian, Part 1

This is the first of a series of articles offering evidence that our President is not a Christian, despite what he or anyone else may claim.

While running for the Presidency as a candidate, when Barack Hussein Obama was asked if he was a Christian, he said “yes, I go to church once a week”. People who know nothing about Christianity may consider this a good answer; but those who are Christians and know something about Christianity know that this is an inadequate statement.

Jesus told Nicodemus, “Truly, truly I say unto you. Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3).” It is being born again that makes a person a Christian! Nothing else!

Hopefully, by going to church one learns that they are a sinner separated from God by virtue of Adam and Eve disobeying God in the Garden of Eden and eating of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. They obtained this knowledge of good and evil, but lost their intimate relationship with God and transferred from the kingdom of God into the kingdom of Satan. Hence forth, all their descendents were born separated from God and living in the kingdom of Satan; this includes Barack Hussein Obama, and it means that each person is in need of a savior.

God so loved each and every person In the world, that He sent his only begotten Son into the world so that each and every person who believed on Jesus would have eternal life and not perish (John 3:16).

With God as His Father, He, Jesus, was conceived sinless. With Mary as His mother, He was human. He lived a sinless life fulfilling the whole law of God (Hebrews 4:15). Thus, He was worthy to represent all of mankind before God. As for being Devine He was able to take all the sins of all mankind in His own body and receive the wrath of God against himself and still survive (I Peter 2:24; Luke 24:1-8).

We must therefore repent of our sins and invite Jesus into our heart for salvation, to free us from the consequences of our sins (Luke 24:46-48). Jesus comes into our heart, we are saved, forgiven, made a new creature by the Holy Spirit, given eternal life and that is what makes us a Christian (Revelation 3:20; II Corinthians 5:17; I John 5:10-12; Romans 8:9).

You can be a Christian if you so desire by repenting of your sins, and inviting Jesus into your heart. A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ come into my heart and forgive me of my sins.” The alternative is to perish, which is to be tormented endlessly by fire.

To date, I have never heard Obama publicly confess Jesus as his Lord and Savior, but I do recall that he did have His statue covered (at Georgetown University) when he spoke in its presence.

Dede Scozzafava's Halloween, More Trick, Less Treat!

Cartoon by William Warren as found on blog 10/23/09

The Republican candidate for the 23rd District in the State of New York is representative of all that is wrong with the Republican Party. I understand that she is a pro-death (abortion), pro-homosexual - a Democrat in disguise? Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed the Conservative candidate over this RINO. Good for you, Governor Palin! This will be an interesting contest to watch on Tuesday, November 2, 2009.
The Wall Street Journal on-line ( reported the following:
". . . The November 2 contest will replace nine-term Republican John McHugh, who resigned to become Secretary of the Army. President Obama carried the district along the Canadian border with 52%, but George W. Bush carried it twice and Republicans outnumber Democrats by 45,000 or so. With voters alarmed about the economy and runaway spending, this ought to be an easy GOP retention.
"Yet party bosses have managed to nominate a rare Republican who could lose: Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, whose liberal record has caused voters to flee to Doug Hoffman, a business executive who is running on the Conservative line. Mr. Hoffman has more than 20% support in the latest poll, which is only a few points behind Ms. Scozzafava, who is only a little behind Democratic lawyer Bill Owens . . ."


Rod C. sent me a series of poltical cartoons. Here are four of the best of those cartoons.

The Right Way to Amend the Constitution, part 15

This is part fifteen of an ongoing series of articles containing my proposals for amendments to the Constitution. For someone who claims so fervently to be a “Constitutionalist”, how is it that I can be so eager to change the Constitution? Well, there are several reasons. For one thing, I believe that after the Bill of Rights, much damage was done by some of the amendments that were added and the legitimacy of some of their ratifications are questionable. Secondly, the Constitution has been violated so much that the necessity of further amendments is needed to resolve the resulting problems. But this should be done extremely cautiously. My amendments are extremely unlikely to ever be introduced, much less ratified, but hey, I can dream, can’t I?

Here is my fifteenth proposed amendment (subject to revision):

If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any Emperor, King, Prince, or foreign Power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.

Commentary on this proposed amendment:

While many people believe that the 14th, 16th, and 17th amendments were never properly ratified, the above is an amendment that was many believe was properly ratified, but is now not recognized as being part of the Constitution. For documented evidence of this, go to

The Constitution had already said, in Article I section 9:

No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

With Barack Obama having joined the ranks of warmongers Woodrow Wilson and Yassir Arafat in receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, this is yet another thing which disqualifies him from holding the office of Presidency. (I don’t care if there were three other Presidents who accepted the NPP—they should have been impeached also.) Furthermore, if it is really true that the real 13th amendment is really the one ratified in 1812, Obama’s alleged citizenship of the United States has been forfeited if he ever even had it.

Removing Obama from the office of the Presidency should be just the beginning. Various titles are given to individuals which impart certain powers such as Doctor, Attorney, etc. These titles give their bearers the authority to practice certain disciplines from which others are barred. Institutions governed by those who were not elected by the people and whose powers are not derived from the Constitution have been unconstitutionally given the authority to impart these privileges. These titles are clear violations of the Constitution which also says:

No State shall… grant any Title of Nobility.

This was clearly meant to protect the American people from a government that could gain control of certain fields. To forbid anyone from practicing in a field unless you do it the way the government says disrupts the freedom of people to decide for themselves who is and who isn’t qualified to perform a certain task.

The Hope & Change President, He, Himself, Needs to Change!

A friend at work gave me a copy of the following Letter to the Editor, which appeared in the Mansfield (Ohio) News-Journal on Sunday, October 11, 2009. It expresses my sentiments and the feelings and beliefs of the majority of Americans post 9 months of President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama’s “leadership.”

Barack Obama must change his attitude

Thank you, all you Obama supporters. You have elected a Socialist, Marxist to the highest position in our country. First African American president? Race has nothing to do with it. He's half white. And there is still no solid proof of where he was born. His own grandmother says it was Kenya.

Thank you, [Congressman] Joe Wilson, for speaking the truth. I respect the position of president, not necessarily the one holding it.

Skin color is immaterial. But not to Obama. He is the racist here. He dislikes whites and Christians, to name just a few.
The liberals need to stop playing the "race card."

Obama needs to get back to the Constitution and put this country ahead of color. We need a president, not a movie star. It's not all about him.

Donna B.
Mansfield, Ohio

I underlined some of the key points of Ms. B.’s letter for emphasis. She raised many issues in her brief letter: his core political philosophy, his possible lack of qualification for the position of POTUS, his apparent racial animosity, and his failure to adhere to and even contempt for the U.S. Constitution.
In other words, Soetoro alias Obama, himself needs to change:
From espousing Marxism & socialism to supporting Capitalism & free enterprise
From being anti-Christian to having a tolerance of Christianity
From playing the race card to becoming a unifier
From being adverse to the Constitution to adhering to the Constitution
Now that would be real change.

“It was kinda like (Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack) Obama’s campaign promises. You know, lofty and shiny at first, but found to be full of hot air and empty after crashing to the ground.”

Late Night Takes – President's Favorite Phrase

Late Night Jokes

The Jay Leno Show

● A new study shows that the phrase most often uttered by President (Soetoro a/k/a) Obama is, “Let me be clear.” The phrase he uses least often? “Let me be specific.”

These jokes are courtesy of which periodically sends out an email compilation of late night jokes, few of which are worth repeating . . . these are the exceptions.

Not Evil Just Wrong (2009), Part 2

"Poluting" Al Gore's Earth Sam & T.D. above and greg & Sam below
Sam, T.D. and I attended the movie premier of Not Evil Just Wrong movie Sunday afternoon in Shelby, Ohio. See the photos below. The movie was shown in a comfortable theatre on a small town college campus.

Sam’s comment was that the movie was somewhat restrained. It could have been more critical of the global alarmist movement than it was. All three of us agreed that a better title might have been Evil and Wrong . . .

The movie started out condemning Rachel Carson (author of Silent Spring) and all those who placed such great effort to eliminate the malaria carrying mosquito using DDT at the expense of millions of lives across the world. The movie told of the devastation in Uganda, where many children suffered and died needlessly.

The movie addressed the lame argument that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, when, in fact, it is a very basic element necessary to sustain life. The contention of radical environmentalists like Al Gore is that the very air humans breathe out is pollution. That is insanity. Humans are made out, by the environmentalists, to be the cause of all that is wrong in the world, when much of what is wrong is natural phenomena.

One interesting highlight for me was the founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, who seemed to make sense and recognized the error of the ways of extremist environmentalism and its agenda today.

The movie was a pro-human documentary pointing out many of the flaws and inconsistencies of the radical environmentalism and its devastating affect on human beings and industry.

The coal business, even as it has done much to clean up real pollutants, is still being targeted by extremists and alarmists such as Al Gore because of carbon dioxide. Mr. Gore would like to see an end to the coal industry and a move to so-called alternative energies even at the cost of human suffering and economic loss. That is insanity.

One moving portion of the movie was the interjection of the thoughts of an average American woman, mother and wife, Tiffany, living in Indiana and benefiting from the Coal industry who tells the story of why the coal industry should be supported rather than destroyed. The movie even follows her to the home of Al Gore in Tennessee to deliver a letter outlining her thoughts and concerns. She had tried to make an appointment to visit with him personally, but without avail.

My friends Sam and T.D. enjoyed the movie and enjoyed the brisk fall air as we inhaled and exhaled air, which the environmentalists one day hope to cap . . . or is that decapitate?

Not Evil Just Wrong (2009)

History will be made today when a world record is challenged for the largest ever simultaneous film premiere. The movie premier today is being termed the “World's First Cinematic Tea Party.” Two showings of a film will happen in Shelby, Ohio at 3PM and at 5PM and nationwide and worldwide this evening at 8PM EST. The local tea party organization is sponsoring the showing of the movie at North Central State College's Kehoe Center Theatre. The movie exposes the rampant fraud and deceit being perpetrated by the radical environmentalists and other leftists, who tout the disproved global warming movement and ideology.

I received the following information from Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association:

Not Evil Just Wrong is the film Al Gore and Hollywood don't want you to see. It reveals the true human cost of Global Warming hysteria.

Not Evil Just Wrong shows how Global Warming alarmism and the tax increases that go along with it are going to increase costs for working families during one of the worst recessions in living memory.

Al Gore and his allies want to ban fossil fuels in the developed world. This would devastate the American economy and drive jobs to India and China.

Be part of the resistance. With your help, we can bypass the barriers to distribution that Hollywood and the mainstream media create to stop you from hearing the truth.

Be part of the cinematic tea party movement and tell Al Gore and the elites that you are fed up with taxes and restrictions that threaten jobs across the country.

Runtime: 85 minutes
Film is rated: PG

Attempts are even being undertaken to bury America and American business by codifying this imbecilic legislation. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. The only pollution involves the manipulation and deceit of the populace by the bigoted and bias media working in lock step with the environmental wacky crowd now in positions of power . . .

"Not Evil Just Wrong" is the film Al Gore and his pals don't want you and I to see. It exposes how global warming alarmism and the cap and trade tax increases that go along with it are going to increase costs for working families and drive jobs to Third World countries during one of the worst recessions in living memory.

Shining God’s Light on the Koran – the Bible versus the Koran, Part 2

Sam continues his on-going series, which contrasts the Judeo-Christian Bible with the Islamic Koran on a variety of topics. He aims the beam of the Biblical laser on the Koran to expose, to reveal what it really says. See his previous articles here.

The Bible v. the Koran

The question at hand is: Does the word of God change or contradict itself?


The only true religion in Allah’s eyes is Islam (Surah 3:19).

Won’t they then muse on the Koran? If it were from anyone other than Allah: they would have found in it many contradictions (Surah 4:82).


It is expected that those who know of the Koran will think on its writings. This will affect the conduct of those choosing to obey the words of Allah in the Koran. Understanding for their conduct will be gained as one ponders what is written.

Apparently, it is expected that those who write will not be error free and non-contradictory unless the writing is from God. Contradictions in a manuscript are considered a sure sign that God did not write the manuscript. Obviously, it is considered by the Koran that God does not contradict Himself.

If the Holy Bible is written by Allah then why would Allah consider Islam to be the only true religion? Did he not, at least according to the Koran, also found Judaism and Christianity? Is there a contradiction between Islam, Judaism, and Christianity?


Psalm 119:89 Forever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever.


Settled means to be established on a permanent basis, stable, and not given to change. In this case, it is God’s word which is settled and it is forever: for all time and eternity. Since God’s word is settled in heaven it is also settled on earth as well which means that God has thought through what He would say or write and will not change His mind on what He has said or had written.

The living things on earth lose their vitality over time as their life leaves them. The writer of the Psalm gives the grass and the flower as examples of what changes over time for their life cycle is soon over. In contrast to things that die, the word of God is proclaimed as viable forever: for all time and eternity. The word of God is alive and its vitality which is from the Spirit of God energies it at all times.


The Koran focuses on the desirability of a person to meditate on its writings. The claim is made that people have not been able to find any contradictions in the Koran and this is then given as a proof of the Koran being from God. This denotes a doubt on the part of the writer that the Koran is really from God. Still, non contradictory is a good test for authenticity.

The Holy Bible, Scripture, proclaims itself the word of God with no reservations. It makes its statements in an authoritative way. It is established and unchangeable in heaven and will always be secure.


The Holy Bible appears to be more sure of itself as to its authenticity as being from God than does the Koran. The word of God does not change or contradict its self.


The Koran passages are a paraphrase of several English translations.

The Qur’an, translated by M.H. Shakir: Tahrike Tarsile Qur’an, Inc.

Socialism in the Classroom Demonstrated

Hat Tip to the Liberty Voice Newspaper, September 2009, where I first came across this article. I was given this particular edition of the newspaper at an event protesting ObamaCare in Columbus a few months ago. This article has been circulating in cyberspace at least since the first part of this year. I am not sure that it is true, but it is illustrative and very accurate in what it outlines about socialism.

An economics professor at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX...

... said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class.

The majority of that class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged, everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied little. The second Test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed to their great surprise and the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder to succeed the greater the reward but when a government takes all the reward away, no one will try or succeed.

--- ‘The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples' money.' Margaret Thatcher

Failure is the best word to describes and characterizes our educational system in America today. The article above outlines part of the reason for its decline and its dismal results. It is not lack of money. It is lack of a godly focus.

President Barry Soetoro, a/k/a Barack Obama, who by his avowed socialist policies and his actions has to be considered at least a radical socialist. His recent injecting himself into the public school classrooms across the nation sets a dangerous precedent, especially for one so extreme in his political leftist views. Couple this with teachers who elevate this grossly inexperienced community rabble-rouser and Chicago groomed political hack, to cultic, almost god-like status by having their children offering praise and homage to him, you have to be very suspect and very concerned.

For the most part, our schools have been commandeered by the secular humanist socialist-bent elite and their poisonous philosophy. These humanists along with the national teacher unions (NEA and AFT), who advance a radical socialist agenda, have conspired to boot God, the Judeo-Christian Bible, and all Christian influence out of the schools bwginning in the 1960s. Ever since this cataclysmic event, our schools have been on a downward trend by in producing educated and prepared students. Increasing violence and declining graduation rates and a growing ignorant population have been big-education’s major ‘achievement.’ These efforts continue and are even accelerating, and now even include the normalization of sodomy and other abnormal deviant behaviors and lifestyles.
