ACORN CEO Encourages Socialism, Blasts Tea Party Movement

April 26, 2010 by  

ACORN CEO encourages socialism, blasts Tea Party movementIn a newly released video, Bertha Lewis, chief executive officer for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), is reportedly captured praising socialism and degrading the Tea Party movement, comparing the recent conservative initiative to the eras of segregation and McCarthyism.

The two-minute video, which appeared on the Verum Serum blog on Wednesday, focused on Lewis’ speech at the March 25 winter conference of the Young Democratic Socialists, where she encouraged the group of liberals to stand up for their beliefs, while warning them of the possibility of a turbulent future.

"Any group that says, ‘I’m young, I’m Democratic, and I’m a socialist,’ is all right with me," she told the audience. "You know that’s no light thing to do—to actually say, I’m a socialist—because you guys know right now we are living in a time which is going to dwarf the McCarthy era…the internment during World War II…and the era of Jim Crow."

Lewis went on to heavily criticize the Tea Party movement, calling the grassroots campaign a simple exercise of veiled bigotry.

"This is not rhetoric or hyperbole—this is real," Lewis said. "This rise of this Tea Party so-called movement—bowel movement in my estimation—and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism."

    The tea-baggers are just a sad group of old, white, rich, malcontent republicans who hate blacks, asians, hispanics, the middle class and the poor and can’t STAND that we have a black president. When they howl “take back America!!!” they mean to take it back from minorities. Luckily the middle class and the poor far outnumber the tea-baggers so they will have little effect in November.

      • denniso

        The parallels between the McCarthy era of ‘witchhunts’ and fearmongering and the ‘conservatives’ now are so obvious to anyone who actually knows just a little history that one has to be in total denial to not see it. Demonizing politicians like Obama and Pelosi,scapegoating entire groups of people like Mexican immigrants,hating and lying about environmentalists,gays,femminists…it goes on and on.

      Mark, Instead of lessoning to people who don’t know what the “Tea Party” is maybe you should go to a rally with an open mind, you might change your mind. You say “The tea-baggers are just a sad group of old, white, rich, malcontent republicans who hate blacks, asians, hispanics, the middle class and the poor and can’t STAND that we have a black president. When they howl “take back America!!!” they mean to take it back from minorities. Luckily the middle class and the poor far outnumber the tea-baggers so they will have little effect in November. Do you know how wrong you really are, we are the opposite of what you are saying. And by the way more than 50% are poor and middle class and of all color. The race issues come from the left. I was hoping that resident Obama would bridge the gap between the races but in fact it has widened the gap, and the group that pushes for HATE is the left. Instead of lessoning to other people check it out for yourself you just might be surprised.

    • Jim

      I feel sorry for someone who thinks like you. You sound like someone who wants everything given to them. I for one am tired of working to give half mt paycheck to someone who does not even try to work when they are able. The day is comming fast when the government will not have the money to pay these entitlements. What are you going to do then? What you should have done in the first place. GET A JOB AND STAND ON YOUR OWN TWO FEET. WE WORKING AMERICANS DONT OWN YOU A LIVING.

      • denniso

        What tired old slop…you don’t ‘give 1/2 of your paycheck to people who don’t want to work’…one of the biggest slices of your taxes goes to your bloated military budget that in total accounts for about a trillion $$ a year. You’re paying for military bases around the world that came to be when we were engaged in the cold war w/ Russia. You’re paying for 80 f-16 flights a day from our largest airforce base in Europe,which is in England. Each flight costs tens of thousands of $ all year long, year after year.
        You’re taxes are also paying for the trillion dollar Iraq and Afghan wars that your buddies Cheny/Bush couldn’t finish because they were so incompetent.

        • American Citizen

          Our taxes are also paying for Obama and Congresspeople to fly all over every day or every weekend. It’s costing us millions for them NOT to stay in D.C. Plus they get $200 a day for expenses when they are in session. Talk about a waste of money.

        • s c

          Little d, if your White House god is full of integrity, honesty and leadership, then WHY can’t he find a way to GET US OUT of Iraq and Afghanistan? The best word for Obummer’s antisocial, WAR-LOVING behavior is HYPOCRISY.
          Obummer acts like he’s taking over for Bush. Could it be that Obummer is a secret Bush fan?
          There’s no doubt in my mind that Obummer is utterly full of something (like you), but whatever it is, it’s not integrity, honesty or leadership. Whatever “it” is, it stinks, and resembles something that crawled out of a toilet.
          The day you or Obummer serve a citzen-like purpose in America is the day that Muslims around the world send us their untold wealth so we can enjoy the wonderful fruits of wealth redistribution. You know Obummer would never ask Muslims to send us their wealth. WEE”RE the ones who are supposed to suffer via forced redistribution of wealth and wealthcare SCAMS. Wake up, dink. You’re dancing like a puppet. Obummer is a 100% puppet, and neither one of you have what it takes to cut those damned puppet strings and be a human – let alone an American.

          • http://www.personalliberty.com Rhonda Miller

            Amen brother I agree with everything you said. You hang in there and continue to let these people that believe Obama is the Messiah know that Obama isn’t the Messiah and the Lord will bring his wrath down on these evil Idiot Democrats. I am proud of you for sticking up for the American people. Every American needs encouragement in the Over Spending WH that do not want to stop all their wild spending.

        • Palin12

          Our taxes also pay some $480,000 a MONTH for pelosi to fly back and forth from Frisco to DC. Our taxes also pay for Obummer to fly Michelle on Air Force One for a hot date in NYC. Our taxes furthermore pay for Obummer to fly out to Nevada to campaign for Dirty Harry. Why do all of the taxpayers have to pay for Obummer’s partisan campaign endorsements?

          • http://www.personalliberty.com Rhonda Miller

            Isn’t it against the law that Obama can fly Michelle on his f-150 bomber plan for personal entertainment. He sure is using all our taxpayer money up fly all over the world. He can’t stand to stay at home. He has to get out and campaign all the world. We are going to have to put a stop to all these wild spending by rising up and impeaching every one of the Demon possessed Democrats in the WH. As outraged as the American people are I’m surpised that haven’t already risen up and thrown everyone of Idiots in jail.

          • David Weber

            Don’t forget, his dog gets to fly on its own separate plane when ObaMao goes on vacation (because muslims consider dogs unclean). All hail Communist-in-chief Hussein ObaMao mmm mmm mmm.

    • Barb

      First of all you mindless twit who obviously can’t think for yourself, IT”S TEA PARTIER, you, the homosexual is the tea bagger, dummy! I am a member of the TEA Party and I am NOT rich and NOT racist! You however are as most who cry racism is. If you think for one minute that the middle class is not the main part of the Tea Party you are sadly mistaken. The middle class is the backbone of the TEA Party and we are the MAJORITY in this country and we will win this in November and Bring our beloved country back to where it belongs, out of the hands of animals like you who would destroy our FREE republic for communism and tyranny. We will prevail and your Dictator will go down and so will all of you and all the racists like you and BIG Bertha! Go to hell Mark it’s where you belong!

    • Allan

      Those who say that Tea Party supporters are driven by racism are delusional. It’s what they need to tell themselves to deal with the fact that people reject their progressive/socialist ideals, and THAT they can’t handle.

    • Mike Johnson

      Mark, your statement is completely and totally idiotic. It reflects the views of so many on the left who, because they can never win an argument based on facts, resort to childish demagoguery and character assassination. God help us if such stupidity becomes the rule in our country.

    • Bev

      Progressives use the Race Card whenever they find that we aren’t buying their Socialist programs. In true Alinsky form the Progressives marginalize and demononize anyone who objects to the passage of the Health Care Bill, the Stimulus Package – Jobs Bill, Amnesty for Illegals, ect. ect. by saying the objection stems from a racist mentality. The only reference I hear regarding race comes from Al Sharpton, Black Theologists and other Progressives. The Tea Party opposition has nothing to do with race they simply want to stop the out-of-control spending, Obama’s form of governing is rapidly moving the US towards Socialism which is un-American. Come November we will vote FOR AMERICA by voting the Progressives out of office

      Mark,
      Its odd that of all the Tea Party and 9/12 group members I have met, there are none that are “wealthy”, everyone has been from low middle class to upper middle class, and all persons who really work for a living or worked, most have kids.

      Plus all of them so far are very nice down to earth easy going honest folks with no agenda other than to rid the US of social programs that are sucking the life out of the middle class.
      And stopping the growth of an out of control government, that spends like drunken Rock Starts high on cocaine and Jack Black; – Wow thats a bad thing. Not.

      Plus – Mark its also true, the vast amount of wealth in the US is in the hands of the Middle Class. Check out the facts the numbers don’t lie, they just are what they are.

      Persons with great amounts of wealth thus – being the “Upper Class,” are not at Tea Party’s, at least non that I have ever met.

      Also how Strange is it that 80% of the US “Upper Class” as in ones with over “$100 million” dollars are also all in the “progressive movement” that by the way also control’s the Democratic party.
      Wow – so your by way of your outright stupidity working toward your very own destruction.

      By why let fact get in the way of a good line of BS that the media can so well spin & twist with ease to supplant such distortions in little minds with no folds, as in as smooth as glass.
      Or – In plain words just stupid mindless twits that want the easy way out, well Mark nothing worth while is easy.

      Thus the Democratic guilt factor, as to why they are so week and have zero spine, as well want social programs to make up for thier guilt. But the key here is that the wealthy Democrats want the Middle class to pay for it all, that way the Wealthy Democrats get to keep their money, and still feel like they have done such good.

      **{I see you have an apple,} I have a fence to paint, you know what – I will let you paint my fence for your apple and $5,000.000.00.
      Afterall if you paint my fence you will feel better about your life, and the apple you really don’t need it as you could get worms.

      Hey and that $5,000.000.00 well, I can do such good with it, so you see its really a good thing – so – here’s the paint brush – there’s the paint, your really doing such a good thing to further the planets health and well being.

      M and M, your idiot-ology doesn’t even deserve a retort, however I’m happy to oblige! Your spewing nothing more than Democratic rhetoric. If your losing on talking points, then you spin the race card, it’s quite predictable. You Dems claim your for the working man, when all it is more of the same dependent creation. Instead of giving a hand up, you continue to fill the pockets of able bodied people, with our tax dollars._Give a well man a crutch, in time he learns to use it. Conseratives help the poor, we give to charities, and help those in need in our communities._The Bible says, There will always be the poor among us. If you believe we can cure all the worlds ills, leveling the playing field, by playing Robin Hood, which is robbing the rich to give to the poor, then you belong in the Utopic Garden, the Obama administration is trying to create. Because your all living in a fanatasy world. We’re taxed and regulated to death now. Are you Liberals that stupid, that you can’t work or think enough to create for yourself, a life in which you can live, WITHOUT Government intervention? Despite popular belief, YOUR the party that keeps, minorities down and out by giving them everything! Work for the life you want, like the rest of us have too.

        I hope Bass will forgive me for using his reply line. I and my wife made just shy of 100,000 between the two of us last year. If that is rich in this country, then we are worse off than I thought! You are right though, I AM rich. I am rich in ways you would never think of. I am rich in friends and family. I am rich in the fact that I live in the best country in the world! I am rich in that I have a God given right to tell you you are wrong and don’t even seem to realize it!! Wake up son, before it’s too late to wake up!!! Keep this the greatest country in the world!!

    • Greg

      Mark, you clearly know absolutely NOTHING about the Tea Party Movement. In reality, it is made up of hard-working, law-abiding people of all races who pay their taxes and contribute to society. I have been at numerous Tea Parties and have never even seen so much as a hint of racism. In fact, there are many minorities who are active participants. At the Tea Party I helped organize we had a Cuban immigrant speak about how Castro in Cuba sounded just like Obama does now- promising things to the poor that he never delivered while castigating the rich. He warned that unless we stopped the liberals in DC now we would end up as bad off or worse than Cuba. He was glad to be in America and proud to be an AMERICAN and didn’t want our country to end up like Cuba.

      When over a million tea partiers marched on DC on 9-12-09, Park Service employees commented on how well-behaved the marchers were and how they even cleaned up after themselves. There was not a single arrest with over 1 million attendees! Any Tea Party which has had any violence had it because it was instigated by leftist infiltrators trying to demean the movement, ie. St. Louis when a BLACK conservative was assaulted and called the n-word by SEIU thugs sent in to disrupt it. There is evidence that people behind the disruptions and violence were connected with the Obama Administration- something right out of Saul Alinsky’s book “Rules For Radicals”, which Obama is so fond of. Anyone who says or believes that the Tea Party Movement is made up of violent white racists, alla Tim Mc Veigh, is either extremely gullible or just plain STUPPID!

    • Shelly

      Oh Mark,
      I am not old, nor am I rich, nor am I a racist and I am not a “Tea Bagger”, but I sure do understand what they are standing up for. Huge taxation and “so called representation”! I don’t get the people that are saying this is anti black or hispanic or anything else. People are sick and tired of going to work everyday and supporting those (what ever their color may be)who chose not to! I don’t support President Obama and it is not because he is black, it is his policies! Get over yourself and think about the future of this once great country, where people still had dreams. This Change he ran on has taken away our hope and I HOPE that it isn’t too late to turn it around.

    • Richard Pawley

      Why waste time even bothering to answer stuff like this? This person is obviously just having some fun saying so many outrageous things. No one could believe such ridiculous things. However, I wouldn’t chance writing to his web site in case he is serious because your computer might get infected or he may be a lone wolf working to get the email address of those he considers a threat. Socialists and Communists who hate God, guns, gold and good government will do anything to achieve their end and a computer that seizes your data would be just like them. All is justified in their eyes. Their beliefs are cultic (like those involved in a religious cult) whereas the God of the Bible says “Come let us reason together”. If the Tea Party and the ideals of the Constitution are ignored in November than this will be our last normal year. I know in my book, “THE LAST DAYS OF THE LAST GREAT UNITED STATES” I called “2009 Our Last Normal Year, Sort Of” but if Congress is not replaced in November and all we get is more of the same then we will all see the end of the United States as we have known it within five years and maybe within three. Already the outrageous spending of borrowed money by Democrats and Republicans over the past few years has set in motion that which will result in at least the prices of food and fuel tripling. Count on it! The government will still be able to say there is no inflation because they consider he price of food or fuel when they calculate inflation. They use Enron-style accounting. We can no more avoid this inflation now than we can avoid the GREAT EARTHQUAKE in Los Angeles. Both might cause riots by those socialists who have been convinced that the government owes them a living. A professor friend of mine has said “Instead of separation of church and state it should be separation of business and state,” but the government is meddling in the auto industry, and the insurance industry, and today in the banking industry. They are not trying to improve anything, only trying to control it. We have not been truly free in this country in a long time but we are losing our freedoms under our first socialist administration faster than ever (some even brag they are communist while others are ‘proud’ to be socialist. That’s like saying one is proud to be a mistress. Oh, well, different strokes for different folks). Trying to be optimistic about all this, at least the rebuilding of Los Angeles will create tens of thousands of new jobs and they won’t be make believe government jobs. I only hope enough Americans wake up, educate themselves, and vote wisely in November so it will not be worse. Those who hate the middle class and freedom so much should find a country where there is none. There are many all over the earth and their number is growing. By the way for those who don’t know, the Tea Party is represented by all races and creeds. They tend to be slightly better off (not much) than average, slightly more educated than the national average, and very few are old unless you mean over 30! (What’s wrong with old? I know Hitler called retired people “useless eaters” but we haven’t gone that far yet). Since there is only a little difference between the Democrats and many Republicans in high places (for instance both have no intention of strengthening our borders and keeping out those – over 2,000,000 who have been guilty of rape, robbery or murder – who have come into the country illegally. I know someone who moved back to the USA after 15 years and when his 16 year old son asked him, how come all the school crossing guards and the cafeteria workers and janitors were Hispanic in a town not far from Washington, DC, his father could not tell him. “When we left 15 years ago they were all black” he said. I myself wondered where all those blacks went. Is it back to “UNCLE SAM’S PLANTATION” (a book by Star Parker on how she escaped the plantation and the welfare of socialism) or did they graduate to the middle class. It is also estimated that about a thousand Arabs from countries not friendly to the US go to Mexico, learn Spanish, and come in illegally across our southern border each year. This estimate is based on those Arabs that we catch coming into the country. Some of those who deal in human trafficking won’t even bring Hispanics in anymore because they make far more money bringing Arabs. (By the way did you know that the forced health insurance that the Congress voted we all must soon buy doesn’t apply to Muslims? They are exempt so we will have to be taxed to pay for their health care as well. Don’t you just love Democratic taxes? (Remember, unlike Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid, which Republicans voted for, not one Republican voted for this bill, so it is entirely the responsibility of the Democrats). As for all the new taxes that the Democrats have planned for us, well, they have to pay for all that free health care somehow. I find it amusing that Mexico has built a fence to keep out illegal aliens – a fence along their southern border to keep out those who are sneaking into Mexico from further south – on their way north to the USA. Sorry, the USA is for Mexico only! Don’t know all the statistics but over a million from Ecuador have come that route. The fact that illegals have been guilty of over 1,000,000 (that’s ONE MILLION) sex crimes in the USA is just considered collateral damage by those who don’t want to stop it. No big deal unless it was you sister or your wife who was raped and killed. So, yes, vote Democrat, or Republican, and say goodbye to all you once knew or vote for the Tea Party Conservatives and those they endorse, who believe in freedom for all. We might have a chance to save the United States but it will be this November. In fact this November’s election could well be the most important election in a 100 years.

      You will be hurt by Obama’s policys! You will be turned down for normal procedures when his reform passes. Your taxes will increase! He has used the poor for their votes and will stab them in the back! He is a lier and a thief. He will destroy every class which will allow him to create a one world government. The poor have caused the housing crisis and the handouts are destroying our country. I am neither old, white or republican and I can’t afford Obama’s increased taxation so stop spewing lies yourself.

THEY PICK UP A SIGN REQUESTING their RIGHTS, in a foreigh country to them. They should go back to Mexico and march and request their human rights.

      Mark you have been smokin something funny haven’t you!!!!!!!!!!!! The Tea-Party members are not Rich, not Old, not Racist, not Nazis, and not all of them are Republican either. You have no idea of what you are talking about. All they want to do is stop this country from becoming a Socialist country or a Bannana Republic. You people claim the Tea-Party people are violent and racist and I see most of it coming from the left. You make false claims and actuations about Tea Party menbers or anyone who dares agree with them in the attempt to bully them into silence. As these attemps are not working you spread more of your left wing hate and discontent and lies. The more you and your socialist flunkies and lame streem media do this the larger, stronger and louder the Tea Party group grows…………..

      Mark Montgomery et al of his mindset: How arrogant! You have NEVER met me, know nothing of me, yet you call me a bigot, and slander me in other terms. It is YOU who suffers from the very issues you accuse me of possessing. Your rhetoric is typical of a numerous but not all liberals: “My mind is made up do not confuse me with real facts”.

      I and overwhelming majority of Americans do NOT care about race or gender, we DO care about the politics and quality of the person wearing the title “President of the United States of America”. The overwhelming majority do NOT want to be taken down the road of debt up to our eyeballs. Every “utopia” that has existed (for the short time they existed) has failed because it takes money to operate and there simply is not enough to go around supporting non-producers and producers. Socialism kills all incentive: the incentive to get a job because they get cared for without hard work, and the incentive to work hard to get ahead because you will get the same pay as the person who did far less or nothing to get ahead. Capitalism does work, you have the freedom to do what it takes to gain or not, but it is your decision to make, not a bureaucrat. You can reap your reward according to your efforts, if any. And “tea bagger” is a homosexual term, I am not of that persuasion. Russia failed because they ran out of confiscated money/wealth and nobody was producing substance of value. China has embraced a “limited capitalism” since 1989′s “shot over the bow” and rebellion was brewing. It too will have to expand to succeed. I will never support a socialist or communist for or as president including the current White-house occupant.

    • Raymond Taylor

      “Capitalists” immigrate to this country (legally and otherwise) every year in numbers that are overwhelming our society and it’s ability to accomodate them economically. Yet, with so many “Socialistic” countries in existence, I have yet to read anywhere that they are having similar problems from liberals seeking their “Rights” to sponge off of someone elses hard work.
      Mark, I am not your daddy, I never slept with your mommy, and therefore I am not responsinle for supporting you! However, I will give you my permission to persue your “Rights” to socialism in the Socialist Nation of your choice! America is a Capitalist Nation; if your not happy or don’t ‘fit in’, please leave.
      P.S. “Capitalists” come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Just because you are not white does not prove you are not a bigot.

      WOW, what an inflated ego:Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity.
      This comment goes to show who the REAL NUTCASES are. Here we have Mark Montgomery, showing how he (or a she) goes through life with blinders (or is that without a thought process, has to have others think for it), drinking the kool-aid and making a fool out of itself. Why don’t you go look for yourself and see that there are people of all backgrounds attending tea party rallies. You are a sick individual (and others like you) who listen to these people spewing hatred so they can get more people contributing to their demented efforts, just like the NAACP, they see their contributions going down so they have to start a whole new RACIST THEME to try and get more money. You ever wonder why they call themselves acorn? well, they are a bunch of nutcases. If you want socialism then more to cuba or venezuala…why the hell do you think that the people from those countries want out? Too bad you mother didn’t have to wash her hair or something else that night you weree conceived.

    • Perry@ 77583

      Democrats are the Party of Bigotry and Exclusion, to wit:

      o A Republican President (Lincoln) was the person responsible for freeing the slaves – the Democrats wanted to keep them enslaved. Emancipation took place in two stages. President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which took effect on January 1, 1863, declared the freedom of all slaves in Confederate-held territory. Three years later, slaves in Union-held areas and Northern states would become freed with the passage of the 13th Amendment on December 6, 1865.

      o During Reconstruction, Republican Army General Ulysses S. Grant, while in command of the US Army, implemented Congressional plans to reoccupy the South and hold elections in 1867. This allowed blacks, members of “The Party of Lincoln”, to elect candidates to represent their interests in Congress and their in local governments for the first time, giving the anti-slavery Republicans control of the Southern states.

      o In 1869 and 1871, as Republican President, Grant signed bills promoting black voting rights and prosecuting leaders of the Democrat Party group Ku Klux Klan (which sought to restore white supremacy by using threats and violence, including murder, against black (and white) Republicans), namely the Fifteenth Amendment, which gave freedmen the vote, and the Ku Klux Klan Act, which empowered the president “to arrest and break up disguised night marauders.”

      o Republican President Grant signed the Naturalization Act of 1870 that allowed persons of African descent to become citizens of the United States.

      o The Red Shirts and White League, both founded by Democrats, conducted insurgencies in Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Louisiana, operated openly and were better organized than the Ku Klux Klan had been. They aimed to turn Republicans out of office, suppress the black vote, and disrupt elections. In response to the renewed violent outbreaks against African Americans, President Grant was the first President to sign a congressional civil rights act. The law was titled the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which entitled equal treatment in public accommodations and jury selection.

      o After the disputed election of 1876, which resulted in the end of Reconstruction, White Democrats in the South regained political control of the region by conducting intimidation and violence in the elections. The Republican Party?the “party of Lincoln”?which was the party that most blacks belonged to, shrank to insignificance as black became disenfranchised. By the early 20th century, almost all elected officials in the South were Democrats. These Democrats disfranchised most blacks and many poor whites from 1890?1908 through constitutional amendments and statutes that created barriers to voter registration, and voting such as poll taxes, property qualifications and, later, complicated literacy tests. “Jim Crow” laws, such as the law that required Blacks to sit at the back of the bus. This disfranchisement and segregation were enforced for more than six decades into the 20th century. For all of this time, blacks in the South had lost their ability to elect anyone to represent their interests in Congress or local government.

      o At the 1888 Republican National Convention, Douglass became the first African-American to receive a vote for President of the United States in a major party’s roll call vote.

      o Pres. Woodrow Wilson (D) Re-invigorated the Ku Klux Klan and enforced a segregated Federal Government.

      o In the 26 major civil rights votes after 1933, a majority of Democrats opposed civil rights legislation in over 80
      percent of the votes. By contrast, the Republican majority favored civil rights in over 96 percent of the votes.

      o Democrat Pres. Roosevelt had Japanese-Americans rounded up and incarcerated in camps as Roosevelt prejudicially considered their motives suspect after Pearl Harbor.

      o Martin Luther King was a Republican.

      o While Democrat Pres. Truman did promulgate a requirement that the US Military be desegregated (and his Republican opponent in the election of 1948, Tom Dewey, was just as strong a proponent for that effort as any Democrat), it never actually happened until Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower actually enforced it.

      o Dixiecrats (Democrat segregationists) Richard Russell, Mendell Rivers, Clinton’s mentor William Fulbright, Robert Byrd, Fritz Hollings and Al Gore Sr. remained Democrats till their dying day. In fact, most of the Dixiecrats did not become Republicans.

      The Republican Party doesn’t place conditions on our love for Blacks, as individuals, such as the the Democrats do with the condition that an individual vote for that party to avoid death threats. This happens to prominent Republican blacks, by Democrats.

He would Vito it, so the democratic congress waited until he headed for Crawford and then shoved it through so Obama signed it and then said it was Bush bill because it was the overspending pork laden spending bill that the liberals wanted for their own self interest agenda.

Furthermore these tactics of calling working people names as Ms. Lewis does is just not going to work anymore. This tea party movement is made up of many different people’s and we will continue to speak out and vote these politicions out of office who do not support our constition and less government. So look out Ms. Lewis and please stop calling people names that are tired of you wasting their hard earned wages. Good bye, Acorn. Forever.

  • KurierRadek

    America is rapidly losing its liberty because too many “Americans” (including America’s political leaders) have little understanding of how vital our Constitution is to liberty and prosperity. I attribute much of this to the extent that most of academia and “higher” learning institutions teach the American heritage, they more often than not denigrate it as “racist, sexists, or homophobic.” In contrast, the true patriots of today uphold and defend the principles of liberty on which America was founded. This would include those involved with the Tea Party movements around the nation. The United States of America is, indeed, a unique and special place. You cannot in good conscience honestly say that the leadership structure in place today is defending the very principles which made America become the greatest nation of opportunity and prosperity the history of the world has ever known. Progressives, the radical leftist, Marxist and the disease of liberalism have been eating away like an aggressive cancer at the heart of America’s absolute truths. They treat the U.S. Constitution, coupled with the philosophy behind it (as stated in the Declaration of Independence), with disdain and contempt. They are radical Marxist revolutionaries hell-bent on “fundamentally transforming” America into a Euro-style socialist welfare state all in the name of power, command, and control OVER the people. This is NOT what America is about! The foundation upon which the United State was formed, (Constitutional Representative Republic “Rule of Law” & the Declaration of Independence), quickly emerged the U.S. as a beacon of liberty and prosperity for the world…”a shining city on a hill.” We now have a White House and a Congress that reject the principles of limited government set forth in America’s Declaration of Independence and that animate our Constitution. In fact, they are SHREDDING our core foundational precepts striking at the heart of our liberties. They want ultimate control. The Obama Administration and Congress have little appreciation for the principles of limited government that made America successful. I have a funny feeling that WE THE PEOPLE will triumph in the end. Freedom is too precious a thing to let tyrannical despotism infect our rights as citizens. The governed bestow power to our elected officials at all levels. The power comes from the people. They continue to mock, belittle, and make disparaging remarks about the VOICE OF THE PEOPLE at their own peril. The 2nd Revolution has begun. Which side will you be on?

  • Marilyn

    I have friends of all races. I am all for Grass Roots! The problems in America are not about color of skin. It’s about leadership that is taking the American people down the tube into Socialism that does not work and has never worked. We have about 545 “people” who are supposed to be leaders of this great country. They have put us in this situation. We have allowed it. If Americans, real Americans, will get off their butts and get to the polls in May and November, we just might get back our real America. I am proud to have a black American for a president but not this one, B. Obama. He and his cronies are gradually destroying the American way. ACORN is growing and prospering again. Beware! They have been taught not to fight but to intimidate; Obama taught them that.

    It’s so nice to see more true Americans reply than crude Obama supporters. Thank God for our tea party, but I would have stood up even without them. I’ve had a box to stand on since Obama was elected. It’s so great to see (we the people) stand up and tell it like it is. I believe that Mark is a plant too. Who else could believe that a socialist America could be the way. I do wonder if the people that want this change, tho, really think they won’t be one of the slaves, too, if the progressives have their way. Do they really think they will be one of the elite? I don’t think so. They will just be one of the numbers as we will be. I don’t think they will be living high on the hog when the progressives take over. So I agree, if you want to live like that, move to Cuba or Russia, or any where else but here.

    It’s interesting that the first thing that liberals scream, when they can’t get their way, is racist. Why does it always have to be racist?

    Why is it that when one opposes the complete bastardization of the principals upon which this great nation was built, you’re a right-wing extremist?

    Why is it that when an average person, forget race or gender, decides to vote with their feet and march on Washington because of out of control taxation, they are immediately compared to the KKK and one of their cross burning rallies?

    Why is it that white Christians, possibly veterans and gun owners, who believe in the adherence to the Bible and the Constitution, have, according to Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, been labeled as “potential terrorists” because of their political beliefs? She encouraged law enforcement officers throughout the nation to target and report these citizens to federal officials.

    As Thomas Paine once said, “It is the duty of every patriot to protect his country from its government.”

    Again I ask, “Why racism?” Why do they always have to pull the race card when all else fails? Has no one ever read the, “Communist Manifesto?” Know thine enemy! Envy! Envy, whether it is of class, culture or race, is the very foundation upon which Communism is built.

    It is also apparent that with the passage of the instrument of massive government control and spending, Healthcare Reform, the government neither fears the people nor cares what it is that the masses want.

    As Thomas Jefferson once said, “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

    It seems that we hear the ‘R’ word (Racist) today much more than we hear the ‘N’ word (made so well known by black people today, that there is no need to define). But the ‘R’ word is not used so much as a derogatory label to achieve equal rights, but more for the acquisition of priveleges for those who use it against those they want something from. This is ACORN’s chief purpose for constantly accusing those who will not give them want they want with this title. But since their illegal methods keep showing up over and over, our Congress has stipped away their priveleges, and no matter how much they use the ‘R’ word will not restore them. At least now though their true nature has arisen so all America can know what their true goal is. They want to turn this great bastion of freedom, The United States, into a tyranical socialist country where only their opinions count, hence the hate for the ‘Tea Party’ movement. Only the numbers of freedom loving Americans will determine if ‘ACORN’ reaches its immediate goals of restoration of special priveges and its long term goals of converting our country into a socialist state. As for me, I believe in the greatest anti-socialist document ever written, that espouses that all men are created equal, ‘The Constitution’. This document promises equality, not privelege. No affirmative action in favor of skin color, sex, or religion, which equates to privelege, not equality. When will the true racism stop, not ever if ‘ACORN’ has its way. Long live and may GOD bless America. Sorry if this may offend anyone, but these are the facts and it is about time we stop bowing to ‘Political Correctness’ and start using our GOD given common sense and calling and telling the ‘TRUTH’. For as GOD has said, the ‘TRUTH’ shall set you ‘FREE’, not ‘ACORN’!

    Tedpoo, MAKE OBUMMER GET US OUT OF IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN! Your false god has had OVER A YEAR to get us out of that part of the world. Does he have ANY plans for bringing the troops home? You KNOW he DOESN’T! You just want to have a reason to piss and moan and SOMEHOW be seen as someone who cares. HYPOCRITE!
    How much do Democrats get paid for doing the SAME immoral things they say are so wrong? Do you have any idea what a LIE is? Do you care, or are you just another braindead, closet communist?
    Either stand up and act like you have a brain, or shut the #^&* up, and move to a country where you and your ‘friends’ can talk about the ‘bad old days’ when you lived in America. To you and all your robot ‘pals,’ GOOD RIDDANCE! If you need help packing, there are states full of people who will volunteer to HELP you LEAVE.

    Mark,

    You’re so typical. Anyone that contradicts Obama is a racist. It doesn’t matter if he’s black, white, yellow, purple, or green. His policies are indicitive of someone not able to manage a Burger King!
    He’s showing either how naive he is or how smart he is. Either way,he’s ruining this country that used to be the strongest militarily and financially. Now we’re being laughed at by an Iranian mad man and being owned financially by China and others. He has shown his anti-semitism by forgetting who our only ally in the middle east is. He’s more interested in the Israelis building condo’s in their own city than an Iranian mad man bent on destroying the world.
    Don’t ever forget the Manchurian Candidate. Our President? is owned by someone, I just can’t figure out who!

    It amasies me how these cry babies scream racists to any objective of their opinions. A free ride with the boarding pass called the race card. What they need to get is the picture of two hundred million plus white people fed up with a bunch of spoiled cry babies and their temperamental whinning. Where did they get the idea that white america or”whiteie” as they like to call caucasions owes them a free living. As for these statements of her love for socialism in what socialist state would this finatic be allowed the freedom to flaunt her oppinions. There are many socialist countries simple answer to the problem. Go to either of these countries if they think socialism is so great and sucessful bonvoyage baby. And ted houser you are either to young or to stupid to realise that bill clinton is the one that made all the foreign trade agreements and enpowered the enviromentalist to destroy our industrial economy. Smart mouth why don’t you come up with an economy to replace industry Bush couldn’t can you.

    What really gets me is the college kids won’t even listen to another view point.That is not what America stands for!? They yell free speech when they want to talk,but racism when someone else gives another view other than theirs.They can’t debate the facts,so they have to yell like little school children,na na na na na !They can’t debate the facts so they try to stop others from speaking!That is the same way Hitler started in Germany!They made people who had a different view look stupid,or trators and eventually they arrested them and killed them! And if these young people won’t listen to facts then this country is sunk!! The worst part of it is ,they are hanging themselves right along with the rest of us!! When they go get a job,if there are any jobs to get,they are going to be so happy to live in poverty,and hand over half of their checks to the government!! And when they live in a tenament,with very little heat in the winter,and food and toilet paper rationing,and electricity rationing,I’m sure they are going to love it! Forget about owning a home or a car,because you can’t have one!It will be enviromentally unsafe for anyone but government to have homes and cars!And forget vacations,only government will get vacations,that you pay for!And forget traveling to see nice places or even realitives,because only government will be able to afford it,with your money of course!And forget getting nice clothes,because you want be able to afford them after you pay for electricity and food! And I know that the young people are going to love curfues,I just know they will love this new country!But if you don’t like this new country,be careful what you say and to who you say it to,because they will be watching and listening!!Yes it is really going to be a fun world to live in!North Korea and Russia just love it!!!! All you young people need to see all the real footage of WWII you can get your hands on,because this is the utopia you are creating!!! You are going to love it!!!!!Just look at their great oriator!He really knew how to give a speech!!! Look at anything that was about Hitler or Stallin,and don’t forget Mao!He was the only leader that massacered more of his own people when no war was going on,boy you gotta love him!!!!!Check out the real news reels of that time,not the new versions,the real truth! This is what you are creating for you and if you are allowed,toyour children! You will have to get permission from the government to have children.Rationing you know!!!!

    i think most of these liberal commentators are nothing more than high school kids reiterating what some liberal teacher is pounding in their ear. there are a few who are just died in the wool democrats and will go down with the party line. hopefully some of these rino repups will join them in november.

    Socialism is just not the way for this country to go unless you want to be a receiver of government handouts and you will agree to whatever the government asks of you. Basically, you become a slave to big government.

    It is hard for me to believe that any rational person would want to become a slave but the liberals keep supporting all of the measures that are bringing us closer and closer to that result.

    All I can do is suggest that liberals take time to read the history of socialism and communism. I would hope that they see that every single country that has adopted this type of society to live in have failed miserably. I would love to have any one of the liberals identify the country they are trying to copy. Please let the rest of us know.

    they are seeking the utopia that most of them have been convinced in our education system, that this country can be everything that is promised, a big brother that will feed and heal them and furnish them a unionized government job with all the benefits with a wealthy retirement. all they have to do is change the weather, stop all drilling for oil, grant amnesty to anyone crossing into the country illegally, trade their car in for a non polluting skateboard for transportation, have a pot dispensing machine available for their coffee break and vote democrat.

    At least us Tea Party people know how to demonstate peacefully. I just read where Rev. Al and Lillian Rodriguez Lopez from the Hispanic Federation in New York city were in Arizona Sunday. They said the activists are prepared to commit civil disobedience to fight the new law in Arizona. Can’t believe Obama has the gall to have the Justice Dept. to see if the law is legal. Hell, the Feds aren’t doing anything. I wish GA would pass a law similiar to Arizona’s. As far as I know you don’t or shouldn’t have any rights if you are here illegally. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    1938 Austria

    “After America , There is No Place to Go”

    The author of this article lives in South Dakota and is very active in attempting to maintain our freedom. I encourage everybody to read this article and pass it along. I see so many parallels in this country–are we going to sit by and watch it happen? Spread the word; also contact your congressional reps; vote them out if they don’t do what they should. If you don’t want to be bothered, then you’re part of the problem! Google Kitty Werthmann and you will see articles and videos.

    America truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away

    By: Kitty Werthmann

    What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will ever read in history books.

    I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide – 98% of the vote.. I’ve never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.

    In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.

    Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.

    The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna , Linz , and Graz were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.

    We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany , where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group — Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria . We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

    We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.

    After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

    Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

    Hitler Targets Education – Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

    Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang “Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,” and had physical education.

    Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

    My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

    Equal Rights Hits Home:

    In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

    Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

    Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:

    When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children.. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

    Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:

    Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

    As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

    We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

    We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

    “Mercy Killing” Redefined:

    In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps . The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

    As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

    The Final Steps – Gun Laws:

    Next came gun registration.. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

    No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

    Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria . Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.

    After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria . Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn’t destroy, they burned.. We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized. Those who couldn’t, paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians. This is an eye witness account.

    “It’s true..those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

    Rev. Al and Rev. Jackson are two of the phonist, racist, whore hounds that call themselves peaceful organizers in a model of MLK. They have more illegitmate children than the national average for blacks in general. I wonder who gave the quacks the money to travel around and create problems. Maybe it is more laundered taxpayers money from some democrat slush fund run by Congress. I still think states ought to put a bountry on all illegals. Using government cost standrads in the 2004, we could split the illegal’s cost per person with the bounty hunter and the US treasure. It would put people to work and pay down our debt! Take uncle Al and aunt Bertha in the round up, two less democrat socialists problem leeches on our taxpayer’s money, creating social unrest. A friend in Az. said with the demostrators gathered most were illegals, easy catch and transport or just trail back to the border. Go AZ., tell Washington to kiss off, you may find more links back to the National Democratic Socialist Party eleits. As we do with fence crawling livestock, brand and tag, what ever color, gender or relegion. We would probably find both ACORN and registered terrprists in the mix.

    Isaiah 65:24

    This is a story written by a doctor who worked in Africa .
    One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all we could do, she died, leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive; as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an incubator).

    We also had no special feeding facilities.

    Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in.

    Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had burst (rubber perishes easily in tropical climates)..

    ‘And it is our last hot water bottle!’ she exclaimed. As in the West, it is no good crying over spilled milk, so in Central Africa
    it might be considered no good crying over burst water bottles.

    They do not grow on trees, and there are no drugstores down forest pathways.

    ‘All right,’ I said, ‘put the baby as near the fire as you safely can, and sleep between the baby and the door to keep it free from drafts Your job is to keep the baby warm.’

    The following noon, as I did most days, I went to have prayers with any of the orphanage children who chose to gather with me. I gave the youngsters various suggestions of things to pray about and told them about the tiny baby. I explained our problem about keeping the baby warm enough,mentioning the hot water bottle, and that the baby could so easily die if it got chills. I also told them of the two-year-old sister, crying because her mother had died.

    During prayer time, one ten -year-old girl, Ruth, prayed with the usual blunt conciseness of our African children. ‘Please, God’ she prayed, ‘Send us a hot water bottle today It’ll be no good tomorrow, God, as the baby will be dead, so please send it this afternoon.’

    While I gasped inwardly at the audacity of the prayer, she added, ‘And while You are about it, would You please send a dolly for the little girl so she’ll know You really love her?’

    As often with children’s prayers, I was put on the spot. Could I honestly say ‘Amen?’ I just did not believe that God could do this.

    Oh, yes, I know that He can do everything; the Bible says so. But there are limits, aren’t there? The only way God could answer this particular prayer would be by sending me a parcel from the homeland. I had been in Africa for almost four years at that time, and I had never, ever, received a parcel from home.

    Anyway, if anyone did send me a parcel, who would put in a hot water bottle? I lived on the equator!

    Halfway through the afternoon, while I was teaching in the nurses’ training school, a message was sent that there was a car at my front door. By the time I reached home, the car had gone, but there on the verandah was a large 22-pound parcel. I felt tears pricking my eyes. I could not open the parcel alone, so I sent for the orphanage children.. Together we pulled off the string, carefully undoing each knot. We folded the paper, taking care not to tear it unduly Excitement was mounting. Some thirty or forty pairs of eyes were focused on the large cardboard box. From the top, I lifted out brightly-colored, knitted jerseys. Eyes sparkled as I gave them out. Then there were the knitted bandages for the leprosy patients, and the children looked a little bored.. Then came a box of mixed raisins and sultanas – that would make a batch of buns for the weekend.

    Then, as I put my hand in again, I felt the…..could it really be?

    I grasped it and pulled it out. Yes, a brand new, rubber hot water bottle. I cried.

    I had not asked God to send it; I had not truly believed that He could.

    Ruth was in the front row of the children. She rushed forward, crying out, ‘If God has sent the bottle, He must have sent the dolly, too!’

    Rummaging down to the bottom of the box, she pulled out the small, beautifully-dressed dolly. Her eyes shone! She had never doubted!

    Looking up at me, she asked, ‘Can I go over with you and give this dolly to that little girl, so she’ll know that Jesus really loves her?’

    ‘Of course,’ I replied!

    That parcel had been on the way for five whole months, packed up by my former Sunday school class, whose leader had heard and obeyed God’s prompting to send a hot water bottle, even to the equator.

    And one of the girls had put in a dolly for an African child – five months before, in answer to the believing prayer of a ten-year-old to bring it ‘that afternoon.’

    ‘Before they call, I will answer.’ (Isaiah 65:24)

    When you receive this, say the prayer. That’s all I ask. No strings attached. Just send it on to whomever you want – but do send it on.

    Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost, but a lot of rewards. Let’s continue praying for one another.

    This awesome prayer takes less than a minute.

    Heavenly Father, I ask you to bless my friends reading this. I ask You to minister to their spirit. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubting, release a renewed confidence to work through them Where there is tiredness or exhaustion, I ask You to give them understanding, guidance, and strength. Where there is fear, reveal our love and release to them Your courage.. Bless their finances, give them greater vision, and raise up leaders and friends to support and encourage them. I ask You to do these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

    P. S. Passing this on to anyone you consider a friend will bless you both. Passing this on to one not considered a friend is something Christ would do.

    Obama demands that the US flag NOT be flown in Haiti
    posted at 10:51 am on March 16, 2010 by Cassy Fiano

    So far, we’ve spent $179,883,065 in humanitarian assistance to Haiti. We’ve sent our military there to help distribute food and water, to help find the missing, and to help rebuild the ravaged nation. But Obama is afraid that we’ll be considered “occupiers”, and so, the United States flag is not to be flown over any US installation in Haiti.

    But the country whose contributions dwarf the rest of the world’s — the United States — has no flag at its main installation near the Port-au-Prince airport.

    The lack of the Stars and Stripes does not sit well with some veterans and servicemembers who say the U.S. government should be proud to fly the flag in Haiti, given the amount of money and manpower the U.S. is donating to help the country recover from the Jan. 12 quake.

    The Obama administration says flying the flag could give Haiti the wrong idea.

    “We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery,” the U.S. government’s Haiti Joint Information Center said in response to a query about the flag.

    “An international partner”?? This may be an international relief effort — with the United States as usual giving far more than any other country — but that hasn’t kept other countries from flying their flags. France, Germany, and Croatia are all flying their flags, just like every other country. I doubt anyone in Haiti is weeping over the French, German, and Croatian occupations taking place because of it. No one besides Obama is idiotic enough to think that flying our flag means that we’ll be seen as an occupation force. It’s perfectly clear to everyone with a brain that we are in Haiti for one reason alone, and that is to give relief.

    Considering the amount of money, time, and manpower we’ve contributed to the relief effort in Haiti, one would think that Obama would be proud to have our flag flying in Haiti. But Obama isn’t a president who is proud of his country, is he? He’d rather apologize for the United States than take pride in it. We are literally saving lives for no gain of our own in a foreign country, and he’s still apologizing.

    And does this show something more troubling? Apparently, this entire flap started because of some squabble with Prime Minister Bellerive, who didn’t like that we flew a flag over a temporary consular station on the tarmac. So instead of standing his ground, and standing up for his country and the good work it is doing, Obama caved. He has no backbone to stand up to any leader of any foreign country! And this man is supposed to be our Commander in Chief. How is the United States ever going to gain respect if Obama is completely and totally spineless?

    This isn’t smart diplomacy. This is pure idiocy, and it’s shameful. It’s pathetic that the leader of our country would be so ashamed of the country he’s supposed to lead. It’s sad that our president so clearly does not love his country.

Go AZ., tell Washington to kiss off, you may find more links back to the National Democratic Socialist Party eleits. As we do with fence crawling livestock, brand and tag, what ever color, gender or relegion. We would probably find both ACORN and registered terrprists in the mix.I got to hear Kitty in Cheyenne Wyoming and she has a lot to tell people how the retards in this great nation are falling for the socialist marxist plan being put into place even faster than what happened in Austria and Europe, with apeasement and great speechs.

    She
    Blasts the ones whom love this country and want the best for it.
    If she does not like it-we’ll be glad to pay for her ticket out of the states.
    One way that is!

    He who blames is usually wrong 99% of the time. Acorn seems to be using the blame game quite a bit lately. Why don’t Acorn try to stand on their own merits if this is possible and then support may come in their favor. With all the past negative news on Acorn and the set up in many States under new names,what are they trying to hide. If the name Acorn can’t be used,do the new names mean a better and more upright organization? Give us the update on all your new offices.

    Liberalism + Socialism = Communism is a verbal formula for a social disease created by Karl Marx and his followers. We have these same followers and social misfits right here in American, and for the life of me, why on earth don’t they move to other parts of the world and live with the social disease of socialism/communism. Allow me to inform you un-American parasites that a man or a woman born upon this earth is an end to themselves, and most certainly, not the means to the ends of others. The individual man or woman must exist for their own sake, neither sacraficing themselves to others nor sacraficing others to themselves. The pursuit of a man or woman’s own rational self-interest and of their own happiness is the moral purpose of their own individual lives. You don’t take away a man or a woman’s right to profit from their own creation and force them to participate in the “equal distribution” of their wealth to benefit lazy individuals. Know this; I am not a wealthy person, but what I do have, I earned the old fashion way…. I worked for it!

    I believe in charity…. never in socialism, especially in America!

    Your Honorable Conservative American Patriotic Warrior!
