One Smart Dog – Rejects Presidential Treats

I would guess that this video has been around a while. It has over 3 million hits. I just came across it yesterday. It’s a real hoot. The YouTube description reads, “Opie is extremely picky about who he takes his treats from."

“We’ve got a Czar for that.” - The President

Hat tip to twitterer and blogger Dana Loesch who posted a link to the embedded video below and commented on her blog, “While speaking Saturday (at the St. Louis Tea Party?) I remarked how the (Soetoro aka) Obama administration seems like a giant iPhone commercial with a czar for everything.”

She added “Curtis the Conservative Teen and member of the St. Louis Tea Party Youth made this fantastic “commercial” illustrating such. He even got the music down!”

TheTeenConservative generated the
video. The YouTube description of the for TheTeenConvervative’s video reads, “A play on Apple's ads about the Iphone having "an app for that"... credit song to---Neopolitan Dreams by Lisa Mitchell.”

President Obama- "There's a Czar for That"

St. Louis Tea Party, Saturday, 11/28/09

Steamed in Saint Louis

The Tea Party movement and protests continue. On Saturday a Tea Party was held in St. Louis, Missouri at which over 4,000 people attended. Hat tip to blogger Dana Loesch, see more photos

We the People keep asking our representatives and senators, "Can you hear us now?" The answer is obviously, "No." For example, the vote on the motion to proceed on the healthcare "reform" bill, or Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Care debate in the Senate last week, was an answer. Another is the President's determination to go to Copenhagen and push curbing carbon emissions. This despite the majority of Americans and many scientists being opposed to Cap and Trade and all the nonsense about Global Warming, Carbon Dioxide as a pollutant, and the issuing Carbon Credits as a "solution.." It is all pure bunk.

What a Creator, What a Creation!

Thanks Be To God! He Made the Heavens Right.

“The heavens declare His righteousness …” (Psalm 97:6). Righteousness refers to a person’s uprightness or just moral character. So how can we see God’s moral correctness and justness by observing the heavens? Colonel Sanders said of the food chain he founded, “We do chicken right”. He did chicken so right that he was practically a billionaire when he died. Many agreed with their money by purchasing his “finger licken good” chicken. Righteousness then would be doing what you do correctly.

When we look at the heavens, we can see that it was done correctly for life to exist on earth. There are four basic forces: 1. Gravitation, 2.The strong nuclear force, 3. The weak nuclear force, and 4. Electromagnetism. Each of these forces have their set strengths and if they were different, either higher or lower, life could not exist.

The sun loses its mass at a rate of 4,000,000 tons of matter each second, while the earth receives 3/10,000,000,000 of this in energy for itself. If this energy was reduced by 5% the earth would freeze up and all those living on earth would die. The mass of the sun is 744 times the mass of all the planets with the sun having 98% of the total mass of the solar system. Gravity then holds the planets in place as they circle the sun.

The nuclear force is what holds the nucleus of the atom together which is made up of positively charged protons & sometimes neutrons and they repel other nuclei which are also positively charged. This force does not extend much of a distance, only a few trillionths of an inch. When the nuclei of several atoms are forced together a thermonuclear reaction takes place. If the force of gravity were less the sun would not shine since the hydrogen atom must be crushed and heated to 10,000,000 degrees Celsius for a thermonuclear reaction to take pace.

The electromagnetic force is the electrical force between the electron and the nucleus of the atom. The electron is negatively charged and orbits around the nucleus. This is where electricity comes from: the movement of electrons from atom to atom. There is a magnetic field surrounding a conductor having a flow of electrons, which is electricity. The earth has this magnetic shield around it protecting life on earth from the high energy particles coming from the sun.

The sun is 865,000 miles in diameter providing a stable source of light, heat, and energy to sustain life on earth. Some stars are 40 million to 600 million miles in diameter and would provide too much energy for life on earth. Other stars are only a few thousand miles in diameter and would not provide enough energy for life on earth.

The earth and the planets are on the same plane circling the sun on nearly circular orbits. The other planets provide protection for the earth against any asteroid coming into the solar system.

When you drive down the highway there is a smooth surface wide enough for you to drive and other vehicles as well. A center lane stripe is in the center on the road and stripes on the sides of the road. As you drive you know that this road was built to be driven on. In the same way as one observes creation it is evident to all that there is a Creator.

“The Lord created the heavens: He is the one who is God! He formed and made the earth: He made it firm and lasting. He did not make it a desolate waste, but a place for people to live. It is He who says, “I am the Lord, and there is no other god”” (Isaiah 45:18 TEV).

The False Science of Global Warming

The mere mortal behind the madness
Cartoon by Eric Allie as found on 11/25/09

Climate change or is it Climategate?

Frozen Stiff Algore

Today the local newspaper, the Mansfield (Ohio) News-Journal, published an editorial, titled “Climate change is an accelerating threat,” which appeared originally in the Houston Chronicle newspaper under the banner, “As a crucial climate change conference nears, more evidence of a warming globe.”

I read this editorial with astonishment. The editors ignored the facts. They chose to beLIEve the global warming lie. They repeat falsehood after falsehood, which apparently is the prescribed tack of the Left. Repeat something often enough and you’ll convince many that a lie is really ‘truth’.

The Houston Chronicle editor(s) are very representative of the Leftist viewpoint and agenda. The Bible warned of a time when men will exchange truth for a lie. That time has arrived. First, there is no God. Then, pre-born human babies are NOT human beings, but merely globs of tissue. Now, we are being lectured about man-made global warming, global cooling, global gobblely-gook, or whatever!

At a time when America’s economy is tanking, foolish and/or destructive extreme environmentalism flourishes and infects the sensibilities of this nation. President Barry Soetoro alias Barack Obama is about to gallivant off again to participate in that erudite elite gathering of global warming alarmists in Copenhagen to espouse and inflict their venomous lies upon the nations of the world. Ironically, he stops in Copenhagen, Denmark on his way to pick up his highly undeserved Nobel Peace Prize in neighboring Norway.

In regard to the editorial content, I have a few remarks. First I would like to change the title found in my local newspaper from “Climate change is an accelerating threat,” to “Climate change ALARMISM and ADVOCACY is an accelerating threat.” That, I believe, states the situation more accurately. Here are the opening and closing paragraphs of this ridiculous and grossly inaccurate article:

"As world governments prepare for a pivotal conference in Copenhagen next month to map future strategy to contain global warming, and the U.S. Congress debates legislation to reduce carbon emissions, evidence continues to accumulate that the threat is accelerating . . .

"The latest developments should raise the political heat in Washington to produce workable legislation to reduce carbon emissions while propelling the U.S. into a leadership role in crafting an international agreement to limit climate change."

Yes, I agree that the Copenhagen conference is crucial. It is crucial that it fails. Otherwise, we will be taking one more step at loss of sovereignty for America. Carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant as the delusional alarmists including Gore and Soetoro/Obama claim.

The only heat that should be raised in Washington, D.C. is the pressure on those representatives and senators who continue to advocate and vote for Cap and Trade and other unwise legislation that will continue to destroy our economy and manufacturing base. That is what the socialists behind global warming apparently want to do. They want to see America merged into some kind of global utopia, which would really be a global hell or global tyrannical state.

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But.... when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an Internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama Supporter, please do not be angry with me because I think your president is a socialist. There are too many facts supporting this. If you seek the truth you will be richer for it. Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. I did. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalist, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish. If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy. Don't rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the Internet. Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there too but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies. Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth? Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox, who he has waged war against. There must be a reason. He does not call them down on any specifics, just a general battle against them. If they lie, he should call them out on it, but he doesn't. Please, find the truth, it will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, or Iran; no, our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington DC.

Fighting for the unborn, they are worth it!

“When a mainstream, popular TV show can identify with pro-life assassins, the times they are a changing." --- Molotov Mitchell, Commentator

The above clip is from the 10/23/09 Law and Order TV show, which Molotov Mitchell refers to in the video commentary. The following is a transcript of Molotov Mitchell’s commentary, "Are the unborn really worth fighting for?"


“Something crazy happened a couple of weeks ago on the TV show Law and Order. The episode, which was appropriately named “Dignity,” was not so subtlely based on the assassination of the infamous abortionist George Tiller.


The dead victim (in the TV drama) was a third trimester abortionist, who got blasted in the back of his church where he also served as an usher.


This is the real shocker, instead of taking the typical LIBERAL approach, by portraying pro-lifers as

· deranged,
· losers, or
· hate mongers

it portrayed fans of abortion as

· cold, or
· even heartless,

which they are.


Even the pro-life shooter seemed reasonable.

And one character even compared him to John Brown. John Brown, my hero, the vigilante who took up arms to free the slaves before the Civil War.


Law and Order is no small show and John Brown is no small name either. So as I was watching this episode, my head was spinning.


These days over half of America opposes abortion. But the medical advances that we have made in the past several decades, Roe v. Wade is outdated to say the very least.


These days babies can survive outside the womb at only 22 weeks. Defects can be treated in vitro. Mother endangerment is so uncommon, it’s barely relevant. Now it all comes down to a simple question, “Is anything worth fighting for?”


I mean if you believe, really believe, that abortion is murder, then that means you believe over 50 million people have been MURDERED in America, alone. If that’s not worth fighting for, what is?


When a mainstream, popular TV show can identify with pro-life assassins, the times they are a changing.

Now, I don’t shoot abortionists in my spare time, but there is one thing that buzzes in the back of my head like the creaking of an old door. If George Tiller had not been killed, then this episode, this beautiful message of life, would have never seen the light of day.

What a very powerful commentary and an equally powerful, reality TV program!

Allow me the right to choose: Lightbulbs

This bumper sticker can be found & purchased at

Here's how the Superstore describes their newest bumper sticker, "Meet the first anti-Big Brother themed bumper sticker: "I'm Pro-Choice on LightBulbs" -- and what a time for it, as America's choice is on the edge of being ripped away when it comes to traditional incandescent bulbs or fluorescent lights."
The government wants to dictate to me how I light my home. The government needs to get out of my bedroom, den, kitchen, living room, basement, and closet. The energy 'efficient' bulbs are more dangerous (contain mercury) and produce less light than do traditional light bulbs. This is another case of the government wanting to control our lives. They think they know better than We the People what is best for us.
I think that the market is the best determinate of what product or process that are good for the consumer. Let the consumer choose. Government mandates rob the people of individual freedom. Government's role might be to provide information on the pro and cons of the various types of light bulbs, but that is it.

The Manhattan Declaration

The Manhattan Declaration was drafted by three prominent evangelical leaders including Chuck Colson. It is a document that is a pledge against supporting abortion (and other forms of murder), immoral sexual relationships, and giving in to limits on freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion. Over 62,000 have signed this pledge. To add your name, click here. But be careful, if you sign, that you agree to everything it says and that you are really willing to live up to the pledge. I wrote the following letter to contact at the Manhattan Declaration.

To whom it may concern,

While I agree with the spirit and intent of the Manhattan Declaration, I can't sign it as written because I don't agree with everything in it.

The most glaring error is the phrase "which made modern democracy possible". The Founding Fathers utterly denounced democracy as a dangerous form of government where guaranteed rights are subject to the whims of the majority and demagoguery. We are (or at least we are supposed to be) most decidedly and exclusively a republic.

While I agree that no fault divorce should not be tolerated in the church, Jesus clearly taught that this should not (and will not) be prohibited by civil authorities. Note his clarification of the Pharisees' question: "All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given." Matt 19:11 (KJV).

The document refers to the necessity of "forsaking all others" and warns against allowing polygamy. While I agree that God's original plan for marriage was one man and one woman, and that homosexual relations and multiple partners for women are most decidedly an abomination to the Lord, I challenge anyone to definitively prove from Scripture that what Abraham, Jacob, David, and Solomon did should prohibited by civil law or even that it should not be allowed in the church. At what point in time did the acceptability of polygamy end? Show me the scripture if you know it. (I agree that the bishops and deacons of the church must be married to "but one wife", but not all men in the church hold this office.)

In the beginning it says, “…which we sign as individuals, not on behalf of our organizations”, but in the end the pledge concerns “our institutions”. I am not the executive of any organization. You should add a phrase to indicate that this pledge is not just for institutions, but private individuals can also participate.

I completely agree in principle with the last paragraph of the Declaration and would be inclined to sign it, but one should be warned that one must do so carefully and be prepared to live up to this promise. A promise not kept will weaken the cause. “…we will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate…” implies a refusal to pay taxes if any portion of it is used for the listed activities. If this is really the intent of the Declaration, then I applaud you for your unusual courage and pray for the defeat of our persecutors. Since such use of taxpayers' money at the federal level has already ensued, I would highly recommend that any signers get educated as to the law and follow the lead of successful tax avoidance strategies. I highly recommend reading a forthcoming document called the "Articles of Freedom". This document, which will contain such strategies, was adopted by the 2009 Continental Congress, a group which has other grievances against the federal government. The document will be available in its entirety at (See especially Title 13.) If further modifications of the Articles of Freedom are allowed to take place or if a future Continental Congress convenes (I am not a member of the current congress) and drafts a new document, may I have your permission to propose the addition of the last paragraph (modified to include any individual) of the Manhattan Declaration into such document?

Is this America's Exit Strategy?

Does America get off here?

If the radical liberal socialistic President and current Congress as constituted have their way the end of the road, our only exit will be fiscal, physical and spiritual collapse. The wild and reckless spending, which started during the Bush years, and sped up at a light-year frenzied pace by comparison under the Soetoro a/k/a Obama regime will eventually and inevitably lead to our demise as a sovereign and free nation.
Cap and Trade, the so-called economic Stimulus bills, the Bailouts, allowing bizarre amounts of Earmarks, debt-increasing Federal budget, the healthcare 'reform' scheme, these are all monstrous resource wasters and debt and deficit builders. They are unwise, foolish, destructive policies born out of a desire on the part of the Left to destroy the America of our Founders. These leftist desire to merge America into some kind of global utopia where the elite will rule and 'guide' the mob.

Climategate, or Goring the World

Here is some music to accompany my previous post. Hat tip to for posting the music video embedded below, they also posted the lyrics. This is parody for "Draggin the Line" by Tommy James and the Shondells. It is all about Climategate.

To read a very current account of the depth of deceit that global warming alarmists will stoop to in order to pertetuate and propagandized the global warming lie, read lastest article, "Climategate: Falsified Research Scandal Rocks the UK" by Robert Romano.


Makin' up data the old hard way
Fudgin the numbers day by day
Hiding the snow and the cold and a downward line
Hide the decline (hide the decline)

Michael Mann thinks he so smarttotally inventing the hockey stick chart
Hiding the snow and the cold and a downward line
Hide the decline (hide the decline)

Oh Climategate I think you have sealed your fate
I hope you do a lot of time, cuz what you did was such a crime
Hide the decline (hide the decline)

Snuff Copenhagen, Stuff Cap & Trade!

Simply put, "Cap-and-Trade means higher taxes, lost jobs and less freedom." That is the basic message that Americans for Prosperity (AFP) has been making across America this year. Now AFP is launching a new television ad campaign called "Say No to Cap and Trade."

This new advertising campaign has a two-fold purpose, according to Tim Phillips, President of AFP:

“First, cap-and-trade legislation has passed the House of Representatives and the Environment and Public Works Committee in the U.S. Senate. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and John Kerry are plotting their next steps to take this job-killing, tax-increasing legislation to the full Senate. We've got to make sure their fellow Senators know that Americans are even more opposed to their scheme.

“Second, in just 13 days thousands of the most hardcore environmentalists and international bureaucrats will descend on Copenhagen, Denmark for the United Nations' 2009 Climate Change Conference - where the foreign U.N. jet-set will attempt to force a global warming mandate on American citizens. The (Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack) Obama Administration is sending a top level delegation to demonstrate their resolve to support climate change legislation like cap-and-trade. The national media is already fawning over the "world changing" possibilities of this Copenhagen climate change conference.

“During this Copenhagen conference, and all the national media coverage it will generate for the pro cap-and-trade side, we want to make sure the Americans hear the truth about what Cap-and-Trade would do to American families and businesses.”

For several weeks this blog has maintained a Countdown to Copenhagen Clock. It is located on the top left of the blog. The whole global warming hoax is much more dangerous economically, and Cap and Trade (tax) is next to worthless in thwarting a nonexistent man-made global warming threat. Cap & Tax based on an out rightly deceitful global warming fraud are essentially just another scheme to redistribute wealth – America’s wealth – by one of the most corrupt organizations on earth – the United (against America) Nations! In other words, it is socialists of the world united against We the People!

Sign of an Islamic Terrorist - Dah . . .

Cartoon by Dana Summers as found on on 11/22/09

Political correctness has blinded the eyes on many in the government and military today. It can only lead to further infiltration and terror acts by Islamic terrorists and Islamic terrorist sympathizers and supporters. Close the mosques that harbor the vicious, villainous, and venomous anti-liberty anti-American false teachers. Purge the military, government of Muslims whose loyalty is to Mecca and not America.

The Louisiana Purchase of 2009

Cartoon by Lisa Benson as found on on 11/23/09

Floyd Brown, columnist and the force behind wrote in an email, which I received today, regarding the motion to proceed vote that happened on Saturday evening in the Senate. In the email he describes the depth of deceit and dishonesty that the Democratic Party leadership did to bully their unwise healthcare ‘reform’ bill through the Senate vote to continue diabolical debate. And this was done against the will of the majority of Americans. Here is a quote of what he said in his email:

Obamacare took another step toward passage this weekend with a party line vote to allow debate in the US Senate. It takes 60 votes to start debate and the 60 Democrats under the maniacal leadership of Harry Reid accomplished the task.

“But the weekend should serve notice to the naïve amongst us that the Chicago style corruption of politics has captured Washington DC with the election of Barrack Hussein Obama. The corruption of the process was in full display as Reid brokered a deal in public to send 300 billion dollars of your tax money to Louisiana in exchange for the vote of Senator Mary Landrieu. Even the Washington Post was ashamed of the open corruption. “Post political reporter Dana Milbank wrote about the details in Sunday’s edition of the paper saying:

Staffers on Capitol Hill were calling it the Louisiana Purchase.

On the eve of Saturday's showdown in the Senate over health-care reform, Democratic leaders still hadn't secured the support of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), one of the 60 votes needed to keep the legislation alive. The wavering lawmaker was offered a sweetener: at least $100 million in extra federal money for her home state.

And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor mid afternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote -- and to trumpet the financial "fix" she had arranged for Louisiana. "I am not going to be defensive," she declared. "And it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix.

It was an awkward moment (not least because her figure is 20 times the original Louisiana Purchase price). But it was fairly representative of a Senate debate that seems to be scripted in the Southern Gothic style. The plot was gripping -- the bill survived Saturday's procedural test without a single vote to spare -- and it brought out the rank partisanship, the self-absorption and all the other pathologies of modern politics. If that wasn't enough of a Tennessee Williams story line, the debate even had, playing the lead role, a Southerner named Blanche with a flair for the dramatic.

Mr. Brown concluded by stating that most Americans must be “sick to (their) stomach(s) about the level of open chicanery in DC.” “Hopeless” is what he called any American who is not truly upset with what went on leading up to Saturday’s vote in the Senate. Using taxpayer money to purchase the vote of a wavering Senator to assure the motion to proceed debate is down right despicable.

SeniorCare under Obama-Pelosi-Reid Healthcare

Hat tip to T.D. for sending the following information letting us in on President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's future Social Security and healthcare plans for our senior citizens.

Social Security

For the first time in history, the Democratic Congress will not allow an increase in the social security COLA (cost of living adjustment). In fact, The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation predicts there may not be any COLA for the next three years. However, the per person monthly Medicare insurance premium will be increased from the 2009 premium of $96.40 to $104.20 in 2010 and to $120.20 for the year 2011.


All American seniors need to be reminded not to vote for the incumbent senators and congressmen in the 2010 and the 2012 elections.

Motion to Proceed with Socialized Healthcare Debate Approved by 60 Senators Tonight

Curious about how the healthcare 'reform' debate vote would turn out tonight, I watched CSPAN2 on the Internet. The vote was strictly along party lines. 60-39.

Senator Mitch McConnell said of the bill just prior to the vote on whether to proceed on the debate on H.R.3590, “(It is) a massive monument to bureaucracy and spending.” The vote tally which began at 7:55 PM EST was 60-39 in favor of the motion to proceed with debate on the bill. He said that a vote to proceed, which 60 Democrats chose to do, at their peril was a vote to do the following:

· To increase the tax burden of Americans in the midst of double digit unemployment
· To increase health insurance premiums
· To approve making deep cuts in the 10s of millions of Seniors who drastically need their Medicare benefits
· To continue the spending BINGE of Congress
· To place a great burden on our children to a future that they can’t afford

He said that that is what H.R. 3590 is all about.

All it would have taken to defeat this destructive and detestable bill was for one Democrat to stand on principle instead of pragmatic political get-along or get-ahead. No Democrat dared to stand up or against their leadership. Many will have to face the electorate next Spring and Fall, however.

The President is on (bill)board

Maintenance man David Lee, of Arvada, puts the finishing touches on a sign featuring drawings of President Barack Obama for a sales lot for pre-owned vehicles along Interstate 70 in Wheat Ridge (Colorado) on Friday. The billboard, completed by an artist Thursday, shows a grinning cartoonish Obama wearing a turban. ( David Zalubowski )
Hat tip to twitterer ObamaWire who recently posted this link to this Daily Camera article below:

A billboard at a Wheat Ridge car dealership -- with a caricature of President Barack Obama as a turban-wearing jihadist -- has sparked a boycott and death threats, but even more support, its sponsor said.

Phil Wolf, owner of Wolf Automotive, said the billboard asks a legitimate question about Obama's alleged lack of documentation of his Americanbirth.

"President or Jihad?" the billboard reads. "Wake up, America! Remember Fort Hood!"

Wolf said politicians have not been held accountable.

"This man is not telling the truth," Wolf said. "He should prove he's an American."

Bobby Clark of the liberal online network Progress Now Colorado is organizing a boycott of Wolf Automotive. Clark said "birthers" and "teabaggers" like Wolf have been emboldened by mainstream Republican politicians and pundits.

H/T to Sam Adams of for posting the lyrics to this Beatles song parady. "Attention Senators & Congressmen, the words of the song recorded below express our feelings at the plight we are in with Pelosi, (Soetoro)/Obama and Reid."
Play the music and song below, see the attachment at the end of the lyrics.


Ah look at WE the foolish people
Ah look at WE the foolish people

Nancy Pelosi
She became Speaker and promised an ethical reign
Were WE Insane?
Look at her working
Seeking to take away freedom and turn us to slaves
Dig our own graves
WE the foolish people
Where have our freedoms gone
WE the foolish people
Our country now is done

Ah look at WE the foolish people
Ah look at WE the foolish people

Barack Obama
He became president based on a promise of change
Socialist chains
Look at him bowing
Making our country appear to be worthy of blame
WE live in shame

WE the foolish people
Where have our freedoms gone
WE the foolish people
Our country now is done

Ah look at WE the foolish people
Ah look at WE the foolish people

Nancy Pelosi
Worked with Prince Harry to legislate freedom away
What a dark day
Barack Obama
Signed all the bills with an arrogant smugness and pride
Liberty died

WE the foolish people
Where have our freedoms gone
WE the foolish people
Our country now is done

(Song was found on Internet -- Creator Unknown)

Motion to Proceed Vote Tonight IS America's Waterloo

It Means Socialized, Government-Run Healthcare

The Harry Reid led U.S. Senate will vote tonight, Saturday 11/20/09, on the "motion to proceed" to Senate Majority Leader Reid's secretive 2,074-page health care bill, which he just unveiled, which costs $2.5 TRILLION from 2014 to 2024--and it will be paid for with massive tax hikes.

He needs 60 votes. A vote for the motion to proceed is a vote for government health care. Tremendous pressure and even political bribery is being put on so-called moderate Democrats such as Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln, Mary Landrieu, and Mark Warner.
Here is a copy of the fax I sent to the following Senators just this morning:

Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) fax: (202) 228-1371

Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) fax: (202) 224-9735

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) fax: (202) 224-6295

I'm writing to urge you to reject H.R. 3590: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or any other attempt to force socialized health care or government-mandated health insurance on Americans.

This plan would create rationing through government committees, create an economically unsustainable government-run insurance plan, use taxpayer funds to insure illegal aliens, and impose economy-crushing taxes.

This is troubling, and you must stop it. Please, do the proper thing and reject H.R. 3590, H.R. 3962, the "Affordable Health Care for America Act," or any other attempt to force socialized health care or government-mandated health insurance on Americans.

I urge all freedom loving Americans to also fax these potential "no" votes to socialized healthcare . . .
Read the health care bill (PDF) for yourself if you have the stomach and the stamina.

Beware of Obamastein!

A Media Created & Sustained Monster

“A new poster has popped up around Los Angeles portraying President (Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack) Obama as Frankenstein’s monster.

“That makes sense, because Frankenstein’s monster doesn’t have a birth certificate either!”

- - NewsBusted, Episode 11/20/09

COMMENT: H/T to the Frugal Café Blog Zone, which recently wrote in a
post that Los Angeles was the first place that the socialist Joker poster of President (Barry Soetoro a/k/a) Barack Obama was circulated. It elicited a “thunderous outcry from leftists.” Now a new poster is making the scene, it depicts Soetoro/Obama as Obamastein. Gear up for some more “inevitable outrage,” the blog writer warned.

More outrageous than the satirical posters of the current occupier of the White House, are his actions, policies and legislative agenda items: massive ratcheting up of the federal deficit through bailouts, federal funding for foreign abortions, ‘stimulus’ and earmarks, special privileges for homosexuals (so-called Hate Crimes laws), Cap and Trade (Tax) based on the Global Warming Hoax, and the so-called Health Care “Reform.” All of these destructive programs and laws are being fast-tracked through Congress. All of these core leftist aims are what are much scarier than Batman’s foe, the Joker, or Frankenstein’s monster . . .

The Right Way to Amend the Constitution, part 18

This is part eighteen 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 eighteenth proposed amendment (subject to revision):
The President may not enter into a treaty or other international agreement that would provide for the United States to adopt as legal tender in the United States a currency issued by an entity other than the United States.
Commentary on this proposed amendment:
This amendment was actually introduced by Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann. It is cosponsored by Ron Paul, but I am wondering if it is really necessary. Article I section 8 says, “The Congress shall have Power…To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin…” But the word “tender” is not used in association with any power of the federal government. If we assume that the power to make something tender is included in the definition of “regulate the value thereof” then I think the amendment would be meaningful. But the word “regulate” means to make regular or uniform, not to determine. It seems incomprehensible that the Founding Fathers would have meant for Congress to have the right to make a foreign coin legal tender, much less the President. "No State shall ... coin Money,...make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts..." If the federal gov't has all power over the issue, then giving the states the power to make gold and silver Coin a Tender means nothing.

Continental Congress Update, part 5

Here is the link to archive of the Continental Congress of 2009.

I must say, that while I agree with much of what has been said during this event, it is an odd mix of Bible believing Christians, secular Constitutionalists, tax protestors, and civil libertarians. Some, on the one hand, have some knowledge and are constitutionally correct on one particular issue, but, on the other hand, totally disrespect many basic constitutional rights. I wish Bob Schultz hadn't got mixed up with former ACLU attorney Mark Lane.

On the Marriage Protect Act, an Erratum

This is an erratum to a previous post, Ron Paul’s Position on a Federal Marriage Amendment

I had once said that it was the one good thing that George W. Bush did during his presidency. The Marriage Protection Act simply restricts the jurisdiction of the federal courts against cases challenging the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. I had written:

The Marriage Protection Act which RP co-sponsored was in fact signed into law by President Bush.

This is not true. I don't know where I got the idea that it was signed into law, but it wasn't. It was passed by the House in 2004, but didn't even get out of committee in the Senate. It has been introduced in each congress since, but did not pass the House. But RP has cosponsored it every time it has been introduced as well as sponsoring the We the People Act, which would also limit the federal court's jurisdiction over these and other matters.

If you agree with this concept of stopping the federal courts from forcing the states to accept same sex marriage, contact your congressman and ask him/her to support these bills. And as always, I appreciate it when fellow bloggers point it out when I make a mistake.
