Obama: Tea Party Leaders are ‘on the fringe’!

Searchlight, NV Tea Party 3/27/10

An article in a local paper I bought at noon caught my attention. “Obama believes core of tea party (movement) is ‘on the fringe,’" that title kind of summarizes the President’s attitude toward the movement. Its leaders are kooks. The ‘hangers on’ may have some legitimate beefs. I don’t like that assessment at all. I think on the face of it, it is laughable. It is LOL, ROFL laughable coming from the most extreme radical President this nation has ever known.

If there are any extremists, ‘on the fringe’ it is the former neighborhood organizer and his comrades in harm, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. They are driving America and Americans to the brink of disaster and destruction with their many poisonous plans, programs, and policies.

The writer of the article, Jennifer Loven, stated “President Barack Obama stepped carefully when talking about the tea party movement, acknowledging it has legitimate concerns about federal reach and spending, but he contended the core of the loose anti-government network is "on the fringe." Again, look at who is calling the kettle black. Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama is a Saul Alinsky, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers inspired and influenced radical.

Loven also commented about the two parties viewpoint on the Tea Parties, “Republicans want to co-opt the passion — and votes — of tea party disciples to help them oust Democrats from congressional control in the fall midterm elections, without losing other voters in the process. As for Democrats, they have focused mainly on trying to marginalize and ignore them. . .” I’m not sure that the Tea Party participants will automatically follow every GOP endorsed candidate. Hopefully there will be a lot of upsets in the Primaries this spring when real conservatives are chosen over the John McCains of the GOP world.

Daubenmire: ObamaCare will triple number of abortions

Pro-life advocate, patriot, and Christian minister Coach Dave Daubenmire’s latest newsletter opens with the following item:

New Health Care Bill Will Triple Abortions: Despite the objections of millions of Americans across this nation our elected officials ignored the will of the people and pushed through the greatest power grab in the history of America. Masquerading as a “health (care reform) bill” the legislation’s design was to gain greater control over the lives of individual citizens. It is our belief that if this legislation is permitted to stand it will be the ruin of our great free enterprise system. Although the entire bill is unconstitutional, the most egregious impact is that experts say it will TRIPLE the amount of abortions in America.”

By the way, Coach Dave is running in the Republican Primary for a seat in the U.S. Congress, in Ohio's 18th District. His websites are and, which is his ministry site. Dave is in a very tough battle with 8 other candidates for the Republican nomination. It would be a real miracle if he won the primary. We’ll see how much of a real change the voters of District 18 want. The incumbent, Congressman Zach Space must be ousted despite the fact that he was the only Democrat in Ohio Congressional delegation who voted against ObamaCare. He still voted for Cap and Trade and other aspects of the Leftist Democratic agenda . . .

Dana Loesch Stands Tall Against Chris Matthews' Attacks on Tea Partiers

Hat tip to which posted an article titled, “Dana Loesch fights back as Chris Matthews paints the Tea Party as racists ,” along with the embedded video below. In part their commentary read, “This was a great clip! Finally Chris Matthews has a conservative with brains on his show and she fights off, and I might add with much awesomeness, these racist claims that Matthews was trying to stick to the tea party.”

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

A pathetic apathy plagues America, but who cares?

Hat tip to Bonnie, who in a recent email, sent me the link below, which is a powerful summary of where America is headed under the Soetoro/Obama-Pelosi-Reid Leftist leadership. She commented, “This message and associated links are the best compilation of information I've seen on the direction in which our country is being (taken).” Arrest the apathy within yourself by checking out and absorbing the content of this wisdom-laced video!

She concludes her email by saying, “Apathy is a more dangerous enemy than (is) the Left.” I agree. That is why the Tea Party movement and the application, expression, and dissemination of conservative principles must continue its onward momentum through at least the 2012 election . . . Expect the best, chuck the rest.
I noticed a slogan used by Cindy Shehan, the war protester, was "The opposite of good is not evil, the opposite of good is apathy." I disagree. A better slogan would be, "The opposite of good is evil, and apathy is as good as evil."

Pause & ponder on another Obama bummer: Craig Becker’s Appointment

With his government-run healthcare in place, our cocky President made 15 recess appointments. One in particular is troublesome as reported by An excerpt of AFP's article can be read below. Above is a YouTube video of Senator Jim DeMint's comments regarding this strongly pro-labor, pro-union appointment.
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is a big Soetoro/Obama and Democrat Party backer. That union was behind the beating of a black Tea Party concessionaire in St. Louis last year. This union’s lackeys serve at the behest of this president when thugs or intimidators are needed to enforce or persuade support for some aspect of the President’s agenda.

“Just when you think this president cannot act more arrogantly, he proves us wrong.

“President Obama waited for Congress to adjourn for Easter and then he used a recess appointment to put Big Labor lawyer Craig Becker on the board that is supposed to be a fair and honest broker between unions and employers.

Becker was a top lawyer for SEIU (Service Employees International Union), one of the most liberal and thuggish public employee unions in the nation. Now, thanks to President Obama, he's on the National Labor Relations Board.

“Becker is so radical on labor issues that the Democrat-controlled Senate REFUSED to approve his nomination! Senator Ben Nelson (of "Cornhusker Kickback" infamy) even said Becker's record indicates he will "pursue a personal agenda."

“Remember the outrageous Card Check legislation President Obama pushed last year that would effectively take the right to a secret ballot away from Americans when they decide whether or not to join a union? Well, Becker is going to try and use his position on the National Labor Relations Board to push it through without Congress. This is just the latest instance of democracy denied - the administration's continued push around Congress and the American people. Check out (Americans for Prosperity's) AFP's to see how this fits together with other moves on Internet regulation, energy taxes and more.

“Actions like the recess appointment of Craig Becker drive home just how liberal and arrogant the Obama administration really is. I just read an advance copy of Sean Hannity's upcoming book entitled "Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama's Radical Agenda," which drives home this point with power and precision …”

Below is my response on the National and International Politics Forum to a poster (#221929) who was ‘embarrassed’ for America that the likes of Sarah Palin could be seriously considered by some to be a choice for president.

Could America have made any worse choice in selecting the community organizer, the Teleprompted One, the current occupier of the White House? Only perhaps the likes of a Fidel Castro or a Joseph Stalin.

For the first time in my adult life I am ashamed of my Soetoro/Obama-Pelosi-Reid led country, which has so trashed the constitution and so ignored the consequences of their immoral, out-of-control spending policies and practices, and are relentlessly dragging us further toward a Marxist state!

Tea Party Protest in Searchlight, Nevada 3/27/10

Searchlight, Nevada 3/27/10,

Here is an aerial view of the rally - showing JUST ONE section of the crowd:

Here is another example of the biased, corrupted, deceiving, lying, Leftist agenda-driven coverage of this Tea Party Express event, where obviously thousands upon thousands attended this anti-Congress, anti-Reid gathering on Saturday:

"... Hundreds of people, at least dozens of people - we haven't gotten a count of how many people turned out there ..."

- - - Fredericka Whitfield, CNN News

Harry Reid: You're So Fired!

From an article, "Palin to tea party rally: Don't sit down, shut up," written today by Michael R. Blood on AP News' MyWay.

... At least 9,000 people streamed into tiny Searchlight, a former mining town 60 miles south of Las Vegas, bringing American flags, "Don't Tread on Me" signs and outspoken anger toward Reid, President Barack Obama and the health care overhaul ...

Dead Men Stalking

Sidekick Sarah sells out supporting McCain

Palin Backing McCain Hurts Her Conservative Credentials
John "Gang of 14, Amnesty for illlegals" McCain is no conservative, except maybe a few months prior to his next election. He is a RINO in the worst sense of that acronym. Although Sarah Palin may think she is being loyal to the man who placed her on the national stage a couple of autumns ago, she is deceived. In reality the principles she so eloquently espoused during the campaign helped him because his media-hyped and generated, faltering campaign needed a boost.

Now, her continued intimate involvement with Johnny Mac in his Senate re-election campaign will hurt her, even if it, unfortunately, might help him. She apparently is blind to his having used her for political, not principled reasons. McCain is a mealy mouthed moderate maverick. He is loyal only to himself. I would like to see a more conservative candidate such as J.D. Hayworth win the Republican nomination in Arizona. But, much like President Bush chose to support the liberal Arlen Specter over the Conservative Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania GOP primary election six years ago, now Sarah chooses to do the exact same thing by supporting the runaway from conservatism maverick McCain.

I think Sarah Palin is making a mistake by supporting and campaigning with and for John McCain. Regrettably, it damages her conservative standing. You are known by the friends you keep. It weakens her chances for higher office. She now must be content with being a pretty talking head and a ‘conservative’ commentator and reality show star on Fox TV.

Do you think Sarah is a sell-out to true conservatism by supporting this fake conservative?

New Age Religion or Christianity?

Articles of Freedom, part 10

This is a series of posts concerning the works of the 2009 Continental Congress. Two weeks ago I wrote about Article 8 of the Articles of Freedom, which was about juries and the seventh amendment. Now I will continue with Article 9, the text of which follows.

I completely agree with this article. Too bad most conservatives still don’t understand either the proper role of government or that Biblical mandate concerning “bless[ing] those who bless you [Abraham]” is talking about Christians, not any race of people. (Read Galatians 3:16, 28-29, get a KJV, and get a clue that Arabs are also literal descendents of Abraham!) Of course, this doesn’t just apply to Israel, but also to any other nation which we have enslaved ourselves (i.e. China, South Korea, Germany, etc.).





The "general Welfare" is mentioned twice in the Constitution for the United States.

First in the Preamble where embedded with other reasons to establish a Constitution, it is stated: “. . . to promote the general Welfare . . .”

Article I § 8 then states: “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common defence and general Welfare of the United States; . . .” This declarative sentence is followed by a list of powers that restrict what Congress may do in this regard.

As James Madison states in Federalist 41 referencing the General Welfare clause: “Nothing is more natural or common, than to use a general phrase, and then to explain or qualify it by a recital of particulars.Madison further writes that it would be an “absurdity” if the list of particulars was interpreted as anything but restrictive on the general statement.

Therefore, notwithstanding the interpretations of the past century, the Congress of the United States has misinterpreted the General Welfare clause in order to expand its powers and to impose the tyranny of unjust taxes upon The People.

The Preamble of the Constitution reveals that one of the reasons for its creation is to promote the general welfare of the people. A foreign policy which seeks to meddle in the internal affairs of foreign countries, including the act of choosing sides, is clearly detrimental to this cause. The “9-11” Report documents that this policy of meddling has caused foreign nationals to turn their hostilities toward Americans. These hostilities have given rise to domestic policies such as the so-called “war on terror”, which have resulted in the enactment of statutes such as the USA PATRIOT ACT that are inconsistent with the so-called Privacy Clause of the 4th Amendment.

There can be no doubt that this policy has endangered the security of the American people and has restricted their Natural Rights. This approach to relations with those beyond our borders clearly does not serve the General Welfare and does not serve the national interest.

The federal government has been served with a Petition for Redress of this grievance. However the government has failed to respond. Such refusal to respond, along with infringement of natural and enumerated Rights, Freedoms and Liberties reflects the behavioral characteristics of a police state.

The general welfare of the People is a principal goal of the United States Constitution, which implies a foreign policy consistent with the admonition of George Washington in his Farewell Address regarding foreign nations – i.e., to have with them as little political connection as possible.”

We might look to Switzerland, a land-locked country in Central Europe, which has one of the highest GDP per capita in the world, which has avoided war since 1815 despite shared-borders with Germany, Italy and France.

Switzerland has remained aggressively neutral and her citizens are well-armed and well-prepared in the defense of their country.


Follow the Constitution for the United States:

1. Discontinue funding for any foreign aid or other funding that is not necessary for the defense against invasion of the United States;

2. Treaties that are inconsistent with or that violate the Constitution that have been ratified shall be nullified; and any further treaties that would infringe upon individual rights, liberties and freedoms, or that are otherwise repugnant to the Constitution shall not be ratified;

3. Repeal the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, REAL ID, and any other statute repugnant to the 4th Amendment of the Constitution.


The State Legislature of each of the several States shall pass a resolution in support of the above instructions to the Congress and thus exercise our just- powers as guaranteed by the 10th Amendment of the Bill of Rights.


We call upon the People to:

1. Raise their voices with ours and those of each of the several States in support of the above instructions to the U.S. Congress;

2. Educate themselves and encourage their fellow citizens to increase their knowledge and awareness of this topic in order to bring our elected officials back under the control of the Constitution, and therefore, of the People;

3. Become personal ambassadors of good-will to citizens of all nations.

Michele Bachmann urges Americans not to pay their taxes if the healthcare bill passes

All the talk show hosts like to pick on Michelle Bachmann. She does sometimes fail to get her facts straight. Here on the “Psycho Talk” segment of the Ed Show, Ed Shultz points out what is in his mind a hypocritical statement of Mrs. Bachmann against the “deeming” procedure. But what difference does it make if the Republicans have violated the Constitution in the same way 190 times? That doesn’t make LEGAL, Ed. The Republicans and the Democrats have been violating the Constitution for decades and we are tired out it. We should have stopped paying income taxes a long time ago. But this situation is worse because the healthcare bill goes a step further in taking away our rights. Both the “deeming” procedure and the bill itself are blatantly unconstitutional and no amount past violations of the Constitution can make this justifiable. Isn’t it suspicious that this “deeming” procedure came about (according to Ed) in the 70s. Why all of the sudden was this change in procedure made? There was no Constitutional amendment to that effect! Article I section 5 states in part:

“a Majority of each [House] shall constitute a Quorum to do Business… Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings… and the Yeas and Nays of the Members of either House on any question shall, at the Desire of one fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.”

This would not happen if the “deeming” procedure is used. The bill would be made law without a majority of Congress having voted for the final version. This version would be without the certain provisions in it, such as the Stupak-Pitts amendment and the Louisiana Purchase. The majority of House members could say “I never voted for the abortion funding or the pork,” while the abortion funding and pork they are referring to would in fact take place. Article I section 7 state in part:

“Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States.”

A common sense, universally and legally accepted definition of the word “passed” is that a majority voted for it. It is clear that if two different versions of a bill have been passed in each House, this does not fulfill the above requirement.

As far as not paying your taxes, I agree with this, you need to present your objections to the Government first before doing this. The first amendment states:

“Congress shall make no law…abridging…the right of the people…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

“If money is wanted by Rulers who have in any manner oppressed the People, they may retain it until their grievances are redressed, and thus peaceably procure relief, without trusting to despised petitions or disturbing the public tranquility.”

from the Journals of the 1774 Continental Congress, 1:105-113

The Constitution is the first casualty of ObamaCare

Cartoon by William Warren as found on 3/19/10

ObamaCare: To Control the People

An audio embedded below, retweeted to me by stansolomon, is very revealing. Congressman John Dingell of Michigan was being interviewed by morning show host Paul W. Smith on Detroit's WJR radio. Listen with your ears wide open! It captures the essence of the recently passed so-called health care reform legislation, better known as ObamaCare or PelosiCare or Government-run healthcare.

“… When you’re going to cover 300 (million?) people in may ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together (in order) TO C O N T R O L THE PEOPLE.”

President Pinocchio & Congressman Bart 'Stupid'

"I'm with Stupak"
"The thrill of victory is the agony of defetus."
Cartoon by Glenn Foden

Hat tip to They had the cartoon and comments posted on their website.

Presidential Promise-Breaker

(Absurdistan News Service) Hat tip to the HotAirPundit which posted an insightful article, “Obama Skips Signing The Executive Order on Abortion Negotiated With Bart Stupak’ a short time ago. Congressman Bart (Simpson?) Stupak was in a word, duped by the Teleprompted President. Principle was exchanged for a promise of a meaningless proclamation that could be ignored or rescinded at will by a President who is a known promise-breaker.

Here is a brief excerpt from the article

"A White House official told Fox, Obama will not sign the Executive Order Tuesday and has set no specific date to do so

"Stupak could be the biggest sucker out of the 435 ...

"President Obama signed the Senate health care bill into law Tuesday. He did not sign the executive order on abortion negotiated with Michigan Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak in an 11th-hour arrangement that may well have saved the entire health care reform effort.

"A White House official told Fox, Obama will not sign the Executive Order Tuesday and has set no specific date to do so. Stupak predicted Obama would sign the order later this week. The White House said only that Obama would sign the order "soon.""

The Night America Died: ObamaCare is Law

Rock Moment: The Day the Music Died
. Barack's Moment: The Night America Died!

The Democratic leadership used dirty tricks to get ObamaCare rammed through Congress. Deemed and Passed? No, Doomed and Flunked!

Bart Stupak caved. Now babies will suffer and be exterminated on the taxpayer dollar. A pro-death President's paper Executive Order is as worthless as a $3 bill. He would not protect babies born in botched abortions, while a State Senator in Illinois. Do you expect him to do anything to stop abortion funding?

Death panels will be implemented. Lives, both the youngest and the oldest among us, will be lost.

The bottom line is that America will be further mired in debt and moves full bore toward bankruptcy, fiscal and moral. Jobs will be lost.

I am reminded of a quote by the President's wife, Michelle, which I amend, unlike what the House did by deeming the Senate HCR bill as having passed. For the first time in my life I AM ashamed of my country.

The Supreme Judge of the world

In the Declaration of Independence an appeal is made to the Supreme Judge of the world. Was the Supreme Judge of the world some figment of its drafters' imagination, which, in reality, does not exist, or is He someone who is real and does exist? Do you know?

Here is a direct quote from the Declaration of Independence itself:

“WE, THEREFORE, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare. That These United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States:”

In the Holy Bible we read that Abraham after feeding three strangers, who happen to be God and two angels, gets up and walks a short ways with them toward Sodom (Genesis 18:20-26).

“And the LORD said, ‘Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.’

“And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

“’Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the
Judge of all the earth do right?’

“And the LORD said, ‘If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.’

In this exchange we see that Abraham is addressing this person, Who is God, as the ‘Judge of all the earth.’ This I would take as being the same person as the signers of the Declaration of Independence are referring to as the Supreme Judge of the world.

We find in John 5:22-27 that Jesus is the Judge of the world.

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.”

The United States of America's very existence is from the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, don’t you think we should honor Him in our lives, nation, and state?

A Lesson From The Moment of Truth

B.J. Lawson for Congress

Below is an article written by B.J. Lawson, who is again running as a Republican candidate for Congress in North Carolina's 4th district. As one of the few pro-life, pro-peace, pro-constitution candidates, he has my full endorsement again this year.

I have a great deal of respect for people who have the courage to make informed decisions based upon constantly evaluating new information, especially when those decisions are made at great political risk.

Perhaps the most courageous example in recent history is North Carolina's 3rd District Representative Walter Jones. Rep. Jones attracted national attention by leading an effort to rename French fries as "freedom fries" in the House cafeteria, as a symbolic effort to criticize France for its refusal to support our 2003 Iraq invasion.

Representative Jones' district includes Camp Lejeune, and it has one of the largest military presences in the country. It was thus noteworthy when Rep. Jones reversed his support for the Iraq war and occupation in 2005, as further study through top-secret briefings and his presence on the House Armed Services Committee led him to the conclusion that we went into war based upon false pretenses.

Dennis 'Yes,' Anh 'No' to ObamaCare

Yesterday, it was Democrat Dennis Kucinich who revealed that he will be changing his previous vote on the Health Care Reform (HCR) bill from “No” to today saying he’ll vote “Yes” on HCR Sunday. Speculation has it that Congressman Kucinich changed his mind apparently after he got to ride on Air Force One. Meanwhile the rest of the nation is being taken on another type of royal ride, straight to oblivion!

Today, it was Anh Cao, Republican U.S. Congressman from Louisiana, who was the only GOP member who voted “yes” for HCR last year, but says he will now above it because of its extensive abortion funding. Here is an excerpt from an article, “
Republican Cao Opposes Pro-Abortion Health Care Bill, While Wilson Wavers,” posted at today.

Washington, DC ( -- Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao was the lone Republican to support the House health care bill but he was listed as a firm no on the Senate measure because of its massive abortion funding. President Barack Obama hoped to twist his arm, but he says he will oppose the bill.

Really, these two votes offset each other. Kucinich will get more press for his switch than will Cao. Why? Because the opposition media (ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, New York Times, PBS, etc.) is in the pocket of the Democratic-lead government. However, it does seem that the Republicans will be standing united in opposition to the bill, a bill which is a shill for bringing about government-run healthcare.

You know it will be a very close vote. If the big-government, socialistic legislation passes on Sunday, things do not look good for the future of America. Another piece of the secular, socialist state will be put in place. Education in the government-run schools is nearly all dominated by an ungodly, atheistic, secular-humanistic philosophy and curriculum. Amnesty for illegals will follow shortly. Then all we have to do is yield the rest of this nation’s sovereignty to the United Nations via treaties etc. and the nation of Washington, Jefferson and Reagan will become a second rate European Socialist Utopia like France or Belgium.

ObamaCare: Fibs by Libs

Fibs or Facts?

I previously posted a notice on Tuesday that the President would be on Fox News this evening. I found the two videos below on the website. I transcribed some of the President’s remarks during the interview by Bret Baier. This interview is one of the rare times when the President did not face a softball so-called journalist since the election. He is only a fair liar.

I identify the President’s quotes or comments as FIBs, for that is what they are primarily. Subsequently I follow each FIB with a FACT or truth about the particular FIB. This bill in a word is atrocious. It will kill the healthcare industry along with the economy. It is a disaster waiting to get voted on. It could deliver a fatal stab to the greatest nation in history.

FIB: “(My version of Health Care Reform or HCR) will “reduce the deficit by 1 trillion dollars.”
FACT: HCR will increase the deficit by trillions of dollars. What government program cost do you know that ever came as planned? None. Zero. Nada. In fact, it will ruin the economy further by ratcheting up the deficit.

FIB: (In regard to the special earmark provisions currently in the Senate bill) The final provisions will be posted (on the Internet?) for many days before this thing passes.”
FACT: The vote appears to be no later than Saturday. ‘Many days,’ I am afraid, have already passed!

FIB: “When you talk about 1/6 of the economy, this (health care) is 1/6 for the economy. Right now is a HUGE DRAG on the economy.”
FACT: No, Mr. President, healthcare is not a drag, but the your so-called solution would place a major damper the economy, It would be an economy killer!

FIB: “Now we can fix this (special earmarks for states like Connecticut's’s $100 million Hospital or Montana’s asbestos special earmark) in a way that is sensible, that is centrist.”
FACT: This President’s iteration of healthcare reform is very, very radical. It is the first step toward a one-payer government controlled system.

FIB: “I have rejected a WHOLE BUNCH of provisions that the Left want put in. They are very adamant about, because I thought it would be too disruptive to the system.”
FACT: First, you, Mr. President, are the Left and what you have not rejected is very radical such as MASSIVE FUNDING FOR ABORTION. The House rejected abortion funding as a prerequisite for passage, yet the Senate and you, Mr. Ultra Liberal Socialist Marxist, conveniently kept this very controversial Leftist cornerstone in your version of HCR . . . Both the Senate version and your version give great power to the Secretary of Health and Human Services to mandate coverage and to approved what procedures are paid and who will get those benefits. Medicare will be reduced by ½ billion dollars. This will literally break the backs of the elderly and disabled.

FIB: “The ideas embodied in this (HCR) legislation are not on the Left, not on the Right …”
FACT: The ideas are socialist ideas right out of the Stalin, Marx, and Mao playbook. They are communistic, Marxist, big-government, socialist Utopian ideas.

FIB: By the time the vote has taken place … it will have been posted ... everyone will be able to evaluate it on the merits.”
FACT: Will 12 hours prior to the vote be ample time to evaluate the merits? I don’t think so! That is probably what we are looking at based on past practice in the Senate …

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The Prayer of St. Patrick

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.’

I arise today
Through God's strength to pilot me;
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's hosts to save me
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through the mighty strength
Of the Lord of creation

As ObamaCare plows ahead, we get a government SnowJob

Let's hope ObamaCare dies this week!

The leftist leadership in the executive and the legislative branches of government does not care about health care reform or even in improving the lot of the majority of Americans. They want power. They want central control of the citizenry. President Soetoro aka Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid lie when they allege that the reason why it is important to pass ObamaCare is to reduce the deficit. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Healthcare reform is absolutely necessary, but it will not be accomplished through a government takeover of another industry, which makes up 1/6 of the economy. The government has no business in areas such as micromanaging healthcare or education. Socialized medicine or nationalizing the healthcare industry has never worked, and it won't work here.

What the government could do is to eliminate the barriers to free market competition. This would reduce costs. This would bring about real healthcare reform. We need to open up the market for health insurance plans to be sold across state lines. We need to begin to privatize some of the federal programs such as Medicare and Medicaid.
Simultaneously, we need tort reform.
Above all, we need to work toward REDUCING the national debt and deficits, and not INCREASING it with another government program!

Is being a Christian a good thing?

Sam recently completed a 10-part series, How I know Barack Obama is not a Christian. Today he responds to a comment made in reaction to one of his recent posts.

“As if being a Christian is a good thing?”

Evidently, Barack Hussein Obama considers being a Christian important, or otherwise he would not be trying to gain acceptance from others as a Christian. He at least feels it is important politically (for public relations purposes), even while behaving as if it has no temporal or eternal spiritual relevance or consequence.

I consider being a Christian important because I do not want to perish. God the Father considers being a Christian important because He sent His only begotten to save the world so it would not perish. Jesus came into this world to save those who were going to perish.

Jesus said, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Personally I prefer eternal life over perishing.

Eternal life comes from having a personal relationship with God that will last forever. To 'perish' means to burn in agony in the Lake of Fire endlessly. This does not appeal to me. Does it appeal to you?
