There’s A Reason Joe And Jane Voter Are Cranky

There’s A Reason Joe And Jane Voter Are Cranky

President Barack Obama unleashed his October Surprise a little early, announcing last week his plan to get the Federal Reserve to print $50 billion more dollars and funnel it to the unions under the guise of improving America’s roads, railways and runways. Perhaps he wanted to get a head start in case this one fails, too.

The plan will bring the total amount of stimulus dollars allocated for infrastructure to $280 billion. You remember those shovel-ready projects that were supposed to stimulate the economy? They apparently weren’t so ready after all. Only about a third of the original $230 million has been spent.

Yet Obama feels the need to pile on more. He couched the plan, called the “Plan to Renew and Expand America’s Roads, Railways and Runways,” as a way to put people back to work. But the only people who are going to benefit are unions and Democrats running for the House and Senate who are going to get more campaign cash from the unions as a result of what columnist Michelle Malkin calls “The Mother of all Big Boondoggles.”

Malkin points out that because of Obama’s Executive Order 13502, contractors who bid on large-scale public construction projects worth $25 million or more must submit to union representation for its employees. Mandates of this sort raise the cost of projects from 9 percent to 18 percent depending on the project and the market, research has shown.

Even unions recognize that projects using union labor increase costs. Recent reports indicate that when labor unions need construction projects done they more often than not chose non-union contractors to do the work, admitting it’s done to save costs.

But Obama is willing to expedite the collapse of the United States economy for the immediate benefit of his union thug buddies and, ultimately — he hopes — his Democrat lackeys in Congress.

Whether he can get such a bill through Congress is another story. Even Democrats, sensing the mood of a populace growing increasingly skeptical of more government spending, are leery of voting for anything that will add the country’s debt burden.

It’s not that they oppose the spending. Were we a year or more away from elections Democrats — and not a few Republicans — would be eager to pile on the spending. After all, spending other people’s money is what the elected elites do best.

But politicians read polls, and polls showing that Republicans hold a 13-point favorability edge over Democrats in the Congressional elections have the Democrats feeling queasy.

Republicans — once so demoralized by the drubbing they received in the 2006 and 2008 elections — are feeling emboldened by the same news. They are — mostly reluctantly — joining with the Tea Parties to oppose more spending and more debt. Some of the GOP Congressmen who supported stimulus spending pushed first by big government, big spending President George W. Bush and then Obama have been handed their walking papers and are about to join millions of Americans in the unemployment lines.

That’s a good place for them. Hopefully they will be joined by many more elected (and suddenly newly-unelected) elitists after Nov. 2.

But if the GOP does as well as some are predicting and take the House — and possibly the Senate — they’d better not forget that the electorate is cranky. Joe and Jane Voter are fed up with politicians who get richer as “public servants” while Joe and Jane cut back on spending, try to pay down their debt and one or both are either unemployed or supporting an unemployed family member.

Joe and Jane expect the Republicans to repeal Obamacare, cut government spending, cut taxes, bring fiscal sanity back to Washington, eliminate regulations that hamper businesses and finally, create an environment that allows manufacturers and other businesses to return to America. Joe and Jane are aware that the biggest tax increase in U.S. history looms, as the Bush tax cuts are set to expire with 2010, and they expect Republicans to do something about that.

If the Republicans fail and continue to conduct business as usual — that is as they did while in the majority most of the period from 1994 until 2006 — Republicans will suffer in two years hence the same fate Democrats are about to suffer.

Meanwhile Recovery Summer — at least in the minds of Obama and Vice President Joe Biden — rolls on. (Don’t tell them summer’s over and Labor Day is behind us.) Unemployment remains high, housing starts and construction, manufacturing and consumer purchasing remain low. That’s quite the recovery.

By pouring obscene amounts of stimulus dollars into Wall Street, the banks and goofy programs that encourage consumers to spend money they wouldn’t otherwise spend, first Bush and then Obama and their Keynesian economic teams created a lot of little artificial bubbles throughout the economy. They gave the impression of a recovery but are now beginning to pop.

As the National Inflation Association wrote on Sept. 1:

The pain that was felt after the collapse of Lehman Brothers (in September 2008) is nothing compared to the pain that will come when we begin to feel the effects of bailing out the rest of Wall Street. U.S. second quarter GDP growth was revised down on (Aug. 27) from 2.4% to 1.6%. In order to get this 1.6% GDP growth, the U.S. government had to spend $3.7 trillion on bailouts, stimulus bills, the buying of mortgage backed securities, and other commitments.

General Motors reported today that their August deliveries fell 25% from one year ago to 185,176 vehicles. The U.S. government used "cash for clunkers" to buy GDP growth in 2009, but that growth stole from future automobile sales. NIA believes that GM’s sales decline is a sign that the U.S. will likely see a sharp contraction in GDP beginning in the third-quarter, which will lead to the Federal Reserve implementing the mother of all quantitative easing and cause a massive sell off in the U.S. dollar.

Christina Romer, outgoing Chairwoman of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, today called for more government spending and less taxes as a way to bring down unemployment. The combination of more government spending and less taxes equals massive inflation, but this represents the state of mind in Washington today. Inflation is still the last thing on their minds because they don’t see it yet.

Even though we might not see massive across the board price inflation at this time, gold and silver prices have been surging ever since NIA released its article "Gold and Silver Capitulation is Near" on July 28th. Gold is very close to breaking its all time nominal high of $1,264.90 per ounce set during June and silver is getting ready to test the critical $20-$21 per ounce resistance level.

Rising gold and silver prices indicate that the U.S. is headed for an explosion in budget deficits that will rise far beyond what it can pay for through borrowing. Leading Chinese economists are now calling Japanese debt less risky than U.S. debt and with the Japanese savings rate in decline, the U.S. will soon have nobody left to borrow from. The only option will be monetization and already the Federal Reserve is getting ready to buy $10 billion to $30 billion per month in U.S. treasuries to keep its balance sheet at inflated levels.

There are now 50 million Americans on Medicaid, with annual Medicaid costs rising 36% over the past two years to $273 billion. The recently enacted health care bill will add 16 million more Americans to Medicaid beginning in 2014, but the U.S. government will likely go bust by then. It is impossible to have an economic recovery when jobless benefits are encouraging Americans to stay unemployed. U.S. unemployment insurance spending has nearly quadrupled since 2007 to $160 billion annually. Even food stamp costs have surged 80% over the past two years to $70 billion annually.

Once Americans get used to receiving and relying on government entitlement programs, it is hard to wean them off of them. NIA has been hearing reports from members with friends who say they will only "come out of retirement" if they can find a job that pays $25 per hour or more, because with anything less it wouldn’t be worth losing their jobless and food stamp benefits. Americans expect to receive their jobless benefits forever and we are sure Obama will continue to extend them leading up to the 2012 election.

There are now countless warning signs all around us on a daily basis that the U.S. is headed for a complete societal collapse.

The Federal Reserve’s reign of economic terror is nearing an end. It has led to the loss of wealth — the dollar has lost about 95 percent of its value since 1913 — and mounting debt and those who thought they were coming out ahead by putting their money in a savings account have learned their money actually lost value due to inflation.

For the last 11 years the stock market has been stagnant, so those with retirement plans in mutual funds have not made money either. And some economists are predicting a 50 percent market crash by year’s end. (Meanwhile gold has climbed from $278 per ounce to $1,250 an ounce in the same time frame. Gold expert Jim Sinclair predicts gold to rise to $1,650 and beyond by mid-January.)

It seems the only ones making money are the elected elites, CEOs of the now mostly nationalized (through regulations that removed competition and granting of favored status gained by subsidizing the elected elites) large corporations, Wall Street fat cats, and Big Pharma. According to Philstockworld.com, about 10,000 individuals hold 30 percent of the nation’s wealth. The middle class has grown poorer and the number of people on the government dole has increased.

This discrepancy can’t continue and a major correction will have to occur. The free-spending actions of Bush and Obama have only pushed that correction down the tracks a little further. We agree with the NIA that the U.S. is headed for an economic collapse.

The question is; are you prepared? If you have bought gold and silver, stockpiled food, water, guns and ammunition and are prepared to grow your own food and barter for more food, water and guns, you are as ready as you can be.

Get ready. The ride is about to get bumpy. And who knows? Obama may yet have another surprise for us in October.

    The puppets and the wannabe puppet masters in Congress and the Washington area need to understand but one thing. When you dare to act like God, you’d better be omnipotent. Those same in-house useful idiots and traitors have tried to claim that they’re omniscient, and it’s obvious that they’re anything but.
    Comeuppance is on the menu, America. Comeuppance is the cure. Let it be served cold, just like revenge. Order up!

    • refuse2lose

      You split the uprights on that one. Our “leaders” have allowed the applause and supportive comments to go to their collective heads. They think that with the sound of their voice or the stroke of their pen that the earth will shake and mountains will be moved. I think they truly believe(not all but most)that without them calling the shots America will fail.

      I have a little FYI for them…. God created the universe and everything we see,He created man and woman. He has given these leaders the talents that they are abusing. He can also take away these very same talents.

        When will America wake-up and see our elected officals have sold us out.Our tax dollars are building 29 mosques in 18 different countrys and what would our leaders say about building 29 new christian churches here in our own country and atleast we wuold create some new jobs?America needs to wake-up. America has been soldout…. If anyone thinks or says islam is a religion of peace,I say look up chapter 9 verse 30 and then tell me about peace. It says to kill the christians and the jews. I hope America can see the writing on the wall,learn how to make a prayer rug and face mecca or learn how to stand up and fight.

        • http://guy@reogiant.com guyb

          Hello America,Its 2010…. Look in the koran and check out chapter 9 verse 30…. look at chapter 9 verse 29….. there are many chapters and verses in the koran that tells muslims to kill the unbelivers….Hello America,,,, islam is trying to take you over and your leaders are helping them do it…..What will it take for America to wake-up????? Another 9-11?????? two more or ten more 9-11s??????Lets take back our great nation and force our leaders to love our great nation or get out of office.Lets force our leaders to put America and the American people first and do the very best job they can for America and the American people or force them out of office.Its time for America to rise and take back our freedoms and start becoming the great America the world over truly knows.

            NO US Elections in 2010?

            Look at:

            puffiewarning.wordpress.com

            Be sure to look at the Archives

            Is this what the Left is planning?

            Is this what some of the Democratic supporters are
            planning? Are some of these supporters
            putting in a powder they call “Jock Strap”?

            Is their budget about $100,000 to allow sending
            75,000 Puffies to Republicans, their offices, and the
            homes of their supporters?

            Are they trying to give Obama a reason to issue
            a Presidential Order to shut down the 2010 elections
            until the Puffie issue is resolved?

            Are huge numbers of 99ers also playing Puffie to
            force the US Government to take some action?
            Is this Puffie stuff just a low cost US civil war?

            Is that a joke?

        • RabidAmerican

          @guyb, not arguing with your point about our tax dollars building 29 mosques but, where do you get that information. What is the source. I haven’t seen anything about that. If true, I want to trumpet that via my channels.

          • Ozel01

            Hey Rabid, I don’t know where the source for the mosque building is but I have heard it and seen mini-bites about it on crawls on news channels. It is something the elites want to keep as low keey as possible. An example is US tax dollars going to rebuild mosques and other buildings in war torn Iraq and Afghanistan. For those places, it is somewhat understandable to rebuild if we demolished them through our bombing campaigns. But, how many times did the enemy demolish something then claim it was errant US bombs that caused it? I know of a few occasions where that happened but just how we can determine one from the other is beyond me. But yes, I completely agree we need to kick these people to the curb at the voting booth. Also, if we already are in an area that is reliably conservative, we need to channel our dollars to places where we need to throw a liberal/progressive out the door. I am personally donating to the Senate Conservatives Fund as well as directly to the Carly Fiorina campaign and the Sharon Angle campaign. I try to apply my funds to those races that are going to be extremely close to help the underdog get over the top.

          • denniso

            There are no mosques being built anywhere using tax dollars…that’s a blatant lie. All religions in this country get the benefit of not paying property tax and having non profit status…Christian and Muslim alike.

Great..but this is not the same wonderful country we use to know….it has been taken over by millions coming into this country and doing whatever they want to do….They do not respect our laws or contatutions..In truth they dont care about the so called ‘free living’ in this country. Yes…we all need to wake up…what ever amount that may be. Even an amount as little as 10 true Christians can make a difference.

    • Kate8

      s c – You said a mouthfull! Wise words.

      The only power the elites have is the power we allow them. They control us by the media, keeping us in fear and hopelessness. They tell us things are dire and we act accordingly.

      We need to stop listening to the “experts” and take back our power. We are more powerful than they, by sheer numbers! If we all stand together and hold the vision of the world we want, and refuse to bow to their manipulations, evil will be powerless against us.

      They want us preparing for revolution and chaos. I say, what we need is a revolution of our thinking. Scripture says victory comes from the renewing of the mind. In fact, this truth is reflected in all the scriptures of the world, for those with ears to hear.

      We cannot fight them on their level. But there is One who can render all their weapons useless. Darkness has no effect in the light, but Light makes darkness flee.

      • DaveH

        Kate8,
        I think you would enjoy reading this free online book. Some examples are dated (written in 1970s) but the principles are timeless:

            Count me in!

      • Vicki

        Well said Kate8. Revolutions most often end with a new tyrant just as bad if not worse than the old. Recent history of the communist countries and the “communist” revolutions in those countries demonstrate this. Recent history of the military overthrows in South America show this.

        We have the unusual ability to use 3 other boxes to make change without revolutions. Change our thinking and make changes thru those boxes and we will not have to open the 4th box.

        For new readers here those boxes are
        Soap box (currently most demonstrated by blogs like this one)
        Ballot box (the one we will use this November.)
        Jury box (were we judge the law itself as well as the facts of the case)
        Ammo box (that would be No.4 and needs no explanation).

      • Richard Pawley

        “They want us preparing for revolution and chaos.” Actually Kate, I don’t think they want us preparing at all. A few might but the evil we are fighting would rather see our world in chaos and even the scripture (Old Testament of the Hebrew-Christian Bible) says that it is a prudent thing to prepare for danger. Joseph was warned of the 7 year famine in a dream but it doesn’t take a prophet to figure out that there are powers in the world and in the government that do not have our best interests at heart. It also doesn’t take a prophet to forecast, as I have, that food and all things imported will eventually triple in price. Some believe we will see this within a year or two but I only know it is coming, not when. With insane bills in Congress like SB 1689 and SB 510 we need to be very aware and we need to vote out anyone who would consider destroying our freedoms in such a way.

        “I say, what we need is a revolution of our thinking. Scripture says victory comes from the renewing of the mind. In fact, this truth is reflected in all the scriptures of the world, for those with ears to hear. We cannot fight them on their level. But there is One who can render all their weapons useless. Darkness has no effect in the light, but Light makes darkness flee.”

        I agree with you whole heartedly. We don’t just need Republicans in office, but Independent thinkers who are not sold out to the special interests. You would not believe the goodies, money, power, sex, that is available to those who get elected. Even good men and women have succumbed to such and just this past summer a mayor of a town in New York was lamenting to me that even the best seem to get corrupted when they go to Washington.

        It is truly a fight between good and evil and as I wrote in one of my books, evil often wins because we don’t even recognize that we are in a war. For instance 72% of Americans understand that the militant faction of Islam (only 7 to 10% we are told, nothing to worry about BUT THAT IS 75 TO 110 MILLION PEOPLE) understands that building the mosque in NYC NEAR THE WTC SITE is a sign to the uneducated masses that they have defeated the greatest country in the world! I know of freedom loving Muslims who oppose it because they know what it means. They believe that Mayor Bloomberg’s family has been threatened and that is why he supports it.

        It may be all about money and greed but I believe as do millions that it is about much more. Building a mosque on the site of their vanished victims holiest site has been a typical way for more than a thousand years to prove the superiority of their god. We don’t have a national religion, something the 100 million hate and they do women and freedom and so much more, so the WTC was the symbol of the USA that most stood out in their minds and why they had to destroy it. I wonder about the 28% of Americans who don’t know that but then I realize they attended public schools. (Want to drive the Marxist wachos crazy? Just point out that the founder of the American public school system – Webster – said that education without the Bible is useless!) However, God has revealed to more important persons than I that we are headed for an economic crisis that will equal our moral crisis and will make the Great Depression look like a walk in the park. It mention this in both my books. We as a nation have turned our back on God and have desired to be a secular nation. He has not turned His back on those who seek him and follow who His ways but many do not. We do need to replace the 111th Congress in seven weeks, but that alone will not stop the inflation and eventual food shortages. Not being a prophet I cannot tell you exactly when all this will happen, but some of my sources think we only have a few months to a few years. Many think 2012 will be a pivotal year when Obama is retired and someone new takes over but let’s hope and pray that even if they can’t straighten out the economy in this generation they can at least be a moral leader. Sadly, those who are just going their merry way and not preparing at least a little will be greatly shocked at this coming decade. As I pointed out recently we have more gold in the US Treasury (if we still own it) than anyone else in the world (no audits are allowed because of national security??? which makes me suspect we don’t have what we used to have, over 261 million ounces), BUT THE DEFICITS OF THE 111TH CONGRESS OF THE LAST FOUR YEARS ARE GREATER THAN THE CURRENT VALUE OF ALL THE GOLD WE HAVE – NOT THE DEBT, JUST THE DEFICITS. We are broke, bankrupt as a nation, except for paper, and we can and seem to be, just printing more of that. I wish they would run me off a dozen million or so. I’d spend it fast on things that I will need and which may not be available (like in Cuba where even Castro admits that socialism has not worked there). The point is that we need to have at least a winter pantry of non-perishable foods like our early pioneers did and as is suggested in the Bible in different words. A knowledgeable person can buy many things that are relatively cheap now that will be incredibly expensive, maybe even more than gold, in the future. 98% of the population has never even held a gold coin in their hand but they can’t eat it. A vacuum packed can of coffee will last a decade or more (in my experience) and the food inflation that is coming will make freeze dried meats and vegetables a valuable thing to have in the future and if all the experts are wrong and God’s warning is for the following decade and not this one then all a person will have done is save a lot of money buy buying a few months worth of freeze dried foods, some of which will last a generation if stored in a cool dry basement. Don’t’ go crazy over this, and don’t over spend as there are great differences in quality and price, but since you are a believer you can surely pray about this and what it will mean to your family.

        A place to start might be http://store.honeyvillegrain.com as I have gotten a number of items from them at reasonable prices and they have sales a couple of times a year. A group of people can buy in quantity cheaper but if the Democrats or the EPA or any group of bureaucrats pass an energy bill to greatly raise taxes on fuel it will also affect the price of food. Shipping is not cheap now and it will only get higher. It’s a reason why a blessed person is one who does not have to live in the city and who can grow a bit of his own food. There is still time to learn but not a lot of it. Pray to Our Father in Heaven, in Jesus name, that He work His will in all the elections, and then get out and vote the 111th into retirement. New people could not do worse that those we have but they might get blamed for what is going to happen because we always blame whoever is running the show at the time. We simply cannot afford the continued squandering of money that Congress seems insistent upon doing. May God bless you and all who read this. He loves us but it is for us to be on His side not for Him to be on our side. Dum Spiro Spero! And for us, afterwards too!

        • Kate8

          Richard, When I said that they want us “preparing for war and chaos”, I didn’t mean it in the sense you took it. I meant that they want us to revolt as a means of overthrowing them, and that we are looking toward that as our battle plan.

          Of course, we do need to “hope for the best, and prepare for the worst”, as far as stocking up, but that’s another issue.

          Good post, Richard. Godspeed.

          Hello America,Can you say prayer rug???? Can you say soldout???? Our leaders,Obama and pelosi and reid are spending American tax dollars building 29 mosques in 18 different countries.No jobs for Americans but they have our tax dollars. Is this okay with all of you fellow Americans? It not with me… They keeping on saying separation of church and state even though it does not say that anywhere in our constitution but they can build mosques with our tax dollars all over the world. What would happen if they built christian churches????? Look, America,We have been soldout and its time to wake up!!!!! Lets vote the far left democrats out of office and take back our great nation. Our leaders ahve sold us out to islam and it will not be long before you will have to make your chose—–Learn how to make a prayer rug and face mecca or stand and fight for your freedoms and rights here in America!!!!!

          • Kate8

            guyb – I see you are trying to get a point across and, rest assured, your point is well taken and agreed with, for the most part, I’m sure.

            Islam is diametrically opposed to our American way of life, and is not our friend. Even moderate Islam (is there such a thing?) is a smokescreen, since Islam is a political ideology as much as a religion.

            I welcome anyone who is of good faith, good character and a love for the American way, and is willing to go through legal channels. But I believe the reason for the influx of Muslims was to cause disruption and corruption of our culture, and it has worked quite well.

            Godspeed, brother.

          • Kate8

            guyb – BTW, there are many Muslims who are having visions and all sorts of epiphanys. God has His Ways.

      • Mike In MI

        K88 – “We can’t fight them on their level.”

        Right on, Doll. We, anybody who is deeply concerned about doing right and respects/loves God enough to do what HE asks, would need to give up a mighty high position to fight on their level. In Ephesians 1:20 It says God raised up Christ and set him at His own right hand…(far above all principality, power, might, dominion and big-time named celebrity on earth or in heaven in this age and the next). In Ephesians 2:6 God had Paul write: “And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.”

        The only thing they’ve got is the effrontery to act like they’re somehow over us. The terrible thing is Christians believe the front more than what God says, most of the time (or they’re ignorant of what God has done for them and how to use it – no thanks to unbelieving pastors and priests who can’t pray their way out of a sitting position). But, you’re right we can’t fight on their level, ’cause they can’t fight on ours – if Christians will only get clear on what they’ve been given and how to use it. It isn’t difficult to get a handle on it: Ephesians 3:4 – Whereby when you read you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ. The only reason it’s “a mystery” is people don’t read PAUL’S EPISTLES Instead they listen to priests and ministers who make lofty speeches, but can’t put the proof of their puddin’ on the front lines.

        Whenever God’s people stood up and got in the Devil’s face, on the basis of what God says, They have never, ever lost.

        • Richard Pawley

          Before we were born in the first part of the previous century two elderly ladies got together in prayer in England. They were neighbors and one of them always felt wonderful when she prayed with her friend. The other heard the Lord speak to her and instruct her over a ten year period. Two books came out of that experience, the classic paperback, GOD CALLING edited by A. J. Russell being the first. What comes to mind is one of the 360 different things that Jesus said to the woman who was open to hearing Him and that is this: WHEN YOU SEE HOW WONDERFULLY YOUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED, YOU WILL REGRET, DEEPLY REGRET THAT YOU DID NOT PRAY MORE. As I mentioned in one of my books, who can look around or read the daily paper, or watch the TV news and not pray at all that is going on. It is why I exhort believers to pray. That is something we all can do and I have seen things happen that only pray and God could bring about. Another time Jesus told the listening woman, “Your whole life is but a parenthesis in a sentence, in a paragraph on the page of the book of your life. Birth opens the parenthesis, death closes it, then back to real-life history,” and He told them to try to remember that, when they were going through times of hardship or sorrow or even times of joy and success. It is all a parenthesis! Great paperback, still available on eBay and an all-time Christian best seller although the sequel is a bit harder to find. May God bless all who read this and remember to encourage your friends to vote in seven weeks. It will be the most important election in 50 years!

            At the 8/28 rally in DC, Glenn Beck challenged us all to pray for 40 days and 40 nights. On his show today, he told about some people who had e-mailed him to say how they came back to God by doing as he said. God works wonders if we only believe and listen to Him.

          Mike, evil has clever ways, and has infiltrated the Church. That is why we were cautioned that “many will come in My Name…”

          Do not rely on others to tell you the Way. Rely on your own Voice of the Lord. If we have been faithful and sought the Truth with all our hearts, He will not fail us.

          The world is filled with deception and deceit, and much of it comes from within the institutions we trust the most. We must develop a true relationship with Truth, pray for discernment, and trust in the Creator of the Universe.

            It says in the Bible to “test the spirits” so one has to suppose that Christians were supposed to be in touch with the Holy Spirit. The main way to do that according to the Bible is to require that any spirit that is giving you instructions can say “Jesus is Lord”. Those from the dark side cannot say that although some will try to fudge it. They have a different lord. Another way of testing is that a spirit of the Lord or from the Lord will never tell you something that is contrary to what is written in the Bible. On some things you will have to know the Bible better than I do but it is a good check. However the first one it the most critical one. That is a test and a check for those who have experienced God as did the 120 in the upper room in chapter 2 to ACTS just past the gospels and who are open to being guided individually from the Holy Spirit. I once didn’t think to check and immediately got a traffic ticket. On another occasion I could have lost my life but I was younger and did not know all this because my church didn’t teach it. On another occasion I was directed to go to St. Louis three months hence, a round trip of 3,000 miles. You better believe I prayed to make extra sure I was being guided and after waiting three months and getting tickets on four aircraft it turned out to be a very worthwhile trip. I write about this sort of thing in my soon to be updated autobiography. Praise God! And I would add what Jesus said to his own disciples: Fear Not! There is a lot of that going around too but November 2 is only seven weeks away!

      This two party system is a complete hoax, and the American people are now aware of this scam. Now we have the Teaparty (forget Beck and Palin) the real Teaparty was started by Ron Paul, (who Beck called a threat to America back in 08 because his followers were calling for a revolution. We need to boot all of these corrupt politicians out of office and in 2012 vote in a man of integrity like Ron Paul, or Jesse Ventura, or Peter SCHIFF. tIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR OUR ONCE GREAT rEPUBLIC.

      • Richard Pawley

        While it’s true that sold out Democrats are not that different from sold out Republicans, it takes more than just having a lot of common sense or thinking differently from the majority to be elected president. The people you mention are all good people but they are not going to be elected president for various reasons (Peter Schiff might make it as a vice-president). Ron Paul is a good member of Congress but his opposition to around 70% of the American population who understand what he does not about the LOCATION of the WTC Mosque being essential to the Islamic World Revolution. It is not an issue of religious freedom. There are many dozens of mosques in NYC and some of them are undoubtedly centers of religion for their followers, but the militant muslim modus operandi has been to build a mosque over the chief religious site of the each country they have conquered. They built the Dome of the Rock over the Temple of David and Solomon in Jerusalem. They build a large mosque over the destroyed Othrodox Christian church in Constantinoble which is now called Istanbul. The built a mosque over the former site of the Catholic Church in Cordoba, Spain, and so it goes. We have no national church or even religion so the WTC was chosen as the site most representative of the United States (Is money our religion? Not really but perhaps to some.) This Cordoba Mosque can’t be built on the exact site of the former WTC as yet free Americans would tear it down before it was built but as long as it’s close to the WTC it’s meaning is clear around the world to those who oppose freedom of relgion, equal rights for women, and individual freedom in general. I have always admired Ron Paul but I was shocked that he did not realize this particular mosque had nothing to do with the Constitution or freedom of religion. What Rep. Paul doesn’t seem to understand is that religon and government (Sharia Law) are one and the same to militant Islam. There is no seperation of church and state in Islam. They are one and the same. If we do not recognize that then we will pay the price and it is understandable that some frustrated Americans in other cities would lash out at other mosques around the country, unfortunate at that may be. We must vote out the 111th congress who has spent us into nearly oblivion but even replacing them will not stop the eventual tripling of food and imported goods in the not to distant future that their squandering of the public treasury will cause. Don’t discount the morality that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are trying to bring back to the United States. They understand that only a return to the foundational principles and the fundamental values of our country can sustain us and keep us from breaking up into several smaller countries (although they may not have thought it out that far) or worse yet, morphed into some kind of New United States that is nothing like we have ever seen before, a fascist or socialist state. Much change is coming in this decade and we need to prepare for it as best we can. May God bless the United States because no one else is going to do so.

        Most people will never get it. All those hosts on TV or cable are not for the American people. They are for the corporations that advertise on their shows. They don’t care about us. We don’t provide money for them. Fox is for Republicans and MSNBC is for Democrats. They both want the little guy to be a slave to the elite. left/right liberal/conservative It’s all BS

      • Bernard from Michigan

        I doubt anyone will disagree with your thought Ron but for the sake of learning I must. History has taught us (or should have were we alert) that the true nature of man is just as GOD said, “To do evil all the day long.”. With this in mind I think that whomever we elect will become obessesed with their own intellect and will be anxious about getting the job done (with good intentions), however we the people do not agree and there is therefore distention amoungst the masses. Hence, regardless of who is in office we will see the same deeds but just a different Kings. I take you back to the first King that GOD enthroned and every King since then. Many, started out with GODs thoughts but quickly relied on their own and their administrations thoughts/suggestions.

        Just my thoughts

        AMEN people. Because I’m registered as a republican, Dems think

I’m just glad we are now organized with a single straight foward adjenda. And that is to restore our government of representatives. Not of leaders who actually think they have power to rule over us instead of represent our interests.

        Jesse Ventura?????

      • ALFRED E. NEUMAN

        Jesse Ventura is a non-believer, and with his attitude concerning the GOD of ABRAHAM, ISAAC, and JACOB, I will not support or vote for him mainly due to his belief that man can “solve” the problems that man (Because of SATAN having introduced SIN into the world)caused in the first place!
        That is pure and total “IGNORANCE”, of the WORD of GOD!
        The ONLY ONE who can RID the world of SIN, is the RETURN of JESUS CHRIST!Then, and ONLY then will the LION LAY DOWN WITH THE LAMB!

        You are right on! Ron Paul or someone with similar views is who we need to direct this nation before it is completely turned into a communist/nazi has been country. As an American citizen, I am NOW fully awake and ready to expel those who want to take this nation down–people like Pelosi, Reid, Dodd and others, including our President. Let’s stay focused!

      • Joe Johnston

        Hooray for you! Ron Paul IS the man whom should be our president. He has run for office of president before. He’ss just not a amn with charisma–which is what most of the idiots that vote like in a candidate.
        SO— I’d love it to have a Ron Paul / Sarah Palin ticket. He’d have a better chance. I voted for Sarah last election. Senator McCain is one of many of whom need a taste of unsweet tea.
        I don’t think Sarah can do as good a job as president as Ron Paul,but she will darn sure help make it happen! Also, she would generate a comfort in me knowing that if Ron Paul passed away she would hold the reigns. After 8 years og Ron Paul/Sarah Palin, Sarah could then be ready for president! Ohhh–what a dream! I am now 62. To see that all happen I’d be 72 or so. Wish me good health and a long life so I can vote for our nation’s future direction.
        Nightmare dream: Obama re-elected. Obama passes away. Leaves Mrs. Clinton (or a slim chance of Biden) as sucessor whom chooses Pelosi as vice.) Maybe I should send this outline to Steven King or Dean Koontz? Whadda u think? Joe J in Georgia

        by Keith Johnson

        So many warnings, so many solutions, and so many people who couldn’t care less.

        LONG AGO: A man named Noah (the conspiracy theorist of his time) warns his people that a great flood is fast approaching. His preparations for the event are largely dismissed as crazy, and he is constantly the subject of ridicule and mockery. Even as the heavy rains turn torrential; the people continue to laugh, eat, drink and dance…right up until the water level rises high enough to sweep them all away.

        1912: As the RMS Titanic takes on water; word spreads among the passengers that they must prepare to abandon ship. Many refuse to board lifeboats because they are convinced that the vessel cannot sink. Some stay in the lounges to socialize while others return to their cabins and fall fast asleep. The lifeboats aboard the Titanic have the capacity to accommodate 2/3 of the passengers, but many of them are sent away nearly empty because some people refuse to take the crisis seriously.

        1913: While treasonous politicians conspire to relinquish control of the U.S. economy over to European central banks; Congressman Charles Lindbergh, Sr. warns:

        “This Act [the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President [Woodrow Wilson] signs the Bill; the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed. The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill. The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. From now on, depressions will be scientifically created.”

        His warning is ignored, and by 1929, America falls victim to its first “scientifically created” depression.

        PRESENT DAY: The United States has entered into yet another “scientifically created” depression—brought about by the same unsound money policies—controlled by the same corrupt banking cartels.

        Somewhere in America; a young man wearing an “End the Fed” T-shirt stands alone—across the street from a Federal Reserve Bank—shouting the prophetic words of Thomas Jefferson through an amplified bullhorn:

        “If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.”

        Many passerbys snicker while others stop to stare. A marked police cruiser pulls to the curb and demands that the young man leave the public sidewalk. He reminds the officer of his first amendment right of free speech and peaceful assembly. The officer reminds him that he couldn’t care less. He pulls a Taser from his utility belt and fires two probes into the boy’s chest—sending him to the ground—where is subdued, and then loaded into the backseat of the cruiser before being hauled away.

        Among the gathering crowd, few gasp in disbelief but are afraid to say a word. Others point and laugh while the rest join in a morbid cacophony of cheers and applause.

        It is a scene that is becoming far too common. Across America, peaceful dissent and protest is being met with brute force, while ordinary citizens stand on the sidelines watching in amusement as the face of their fellow countrymen meet the stamping boot of the police state.

        The Constitution has become a relic, and those who live by it are becoming a nuisance to those who would like to see it torn to shreds. Word has come down from on high that these protests must end. A new strategy to quell dissent is being deployed through mainstream media personalities, who have been given orders to reign in their flocks by controlling and limiting their mode of expression.

        In the days leading up to Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally, the self-described rodeo clown instructed attendees not to bring signs or posters. Most complied, some chose instead to bring flags or dress up in colorful “period piece” costumes.

        Weeks later, in a two minute segment of his Fox television program, Beck addressed his obedient flock and pleaded for them to abandon their signs and costumes altogether. He referenced a new website by Think Progress, which Beck alledges was launched, “for the sole purpose of making you in to the crazy costume person, the racist or the conspiracy theorist. They are going to try to make you into anything that you are not.”

        Instead of encouraging his viewers to be discriminating in the signs they hoist or the clothes they wear, he suggested that his viewers give in to the criticism. Beck told his people to, “Dress normally” and to, “Take the signs down.”

        He then shared about a conversation he had with his daughter, who suggested that she really didn’t care what people said about her clothing. His fatherly response to her was, “well, other people do,” and then concluded by suggesting that the lesson for the day was: “Don’t give the media even a chance to typecast you.”

        This is a clever psy-op using lots of double speak. Beck is actually conditioning his people to be shamed over the use of signs, loud speech and clothing with political statements. By instructing his people to avoid criticism, he is actually projecting that he concurs with the criticism itself.

        Once these people accept that this behavior is a social faux pas, they too will join into the criticism and demonization of those who hold signs, use bullhorns or wear T-shirts with statements like “9/11 Was an Inside Job,” or “Don’t Tread on Me.”

        Beck also suggested to his viewers that instead of bringing signs, they should bring their children. This is an even more sinister plan. The idea here is to use children as a tool to further demonize protestors. At certain events, Beck’s “quiet” minions will show up—with their sons or daughters in tow—and confront more passionate demonstrators and remind them to, “Keep it down– children are present.” I’m sure you can envision how that will look on the evening news.

        But this strategy to quell dissent is not confined to the establishment right. The establishment left has its own plan, ripped straight from the pages of leftist icon Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” Rule #5 of that book states:

        “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

        On October 30, 2010—the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and Stephan Colbert of the Colbert Report will be staging duel rallies in Washington D.C. to spoof Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally and the Tea Party movement in general.

        While we all enjoy good satire from time to time—even when the ribbing is done at our expense—these particular events should not be merely taken at face value.

        The home page for Jon Stewart’s “Rally To Restore Sanity,” describes the event as,

        “…a rally for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies, who actually have lives and families and jobs (or are looking for jobs)… Think of our event as Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement.”

        Respectful disagreement? This is sure a stark contrast to the liberal left that pioneered the explosive, ‘in-your-face’ anti-war, anti-fascist movement of the 1960’s and 70’s. Today, the liberals seem to have no time for that. But apparently some will at least be able to find the time to attend a mock rally of tomfoolery that serves no other purpose than to further alienate the left from the right.

        The page goes on to read, “We’re looking for the people who think shouting is annoying, counterproductive, and terrible for your throat…bring your indoor voice”

        Yeah, God forbid that we annoy our oppressors with our grievances or scratch our throats while exercising our first amendment rights. The reason we’re in the mess we’re in is because too many people have been using their “indoor voice” for too many years. Silence and complacency are the only things that are counterproductive. I shutter to think what might have happened if Paul Revere had been stopped midway through his midnight ride and convinced that his “shouting” was “annoying” and “counterproductive.”

        The liberals have lost their mojo when it comes to demonstrations. Their recent attempts to counter the Tea Party movement with a Coffee Party movement have thus far been an epic failure. During the Bush years, there was at least some semblance of an anti-war movement. But as soon as Obama took office, that all but disappeared.

        The popularity and effectiveness of Town Hall confrontations and Tea Party demonstrations has overshadowed the liberal voice. Now, they are turning to more drastic measures by using ridicule to shame and silence their opposition.

        Even some Tea Party groups, who many believe are free of establishment control, are starting to sound like they have been co-opted, and are preaching the same rhetoric as Glenn Beck.

        Amy Kremer, chairman of the Tea Party Express, recently said, “The time has come for us to put down the protest signs and pick up the campaign signs and get engaged. We have stood on the sidelines for long enough protesting.”

        So now we have both the establishment left and right working in concert to stifle the steadfast American tradition of dissent. The right will be cordial, the left will laugh and the criminals in our government will have nice quiet streets to travel down as they take this country straight to Hell.

      • John R. Bloxson Jr

        Ron Paul is a Secular Progressive in his veiws of Christianty, He is a Isolationist when it ccomes to world affairs and he is a liberal when it comes to abortion and euthanasia. Lets look at these first he believes in decriminalization of Drugs, and Free Speech unless you hold an unpopular view such as the true Christians view of morality. Second As an Isolationist he forgets that we tried that twice before and it didn’t work in fact both times ended in World War’s and we lost 560,000 lives so Isolationism is a bust. Morality include Life as Sacred but if your sick and infirm you should cross the Bridge a euthamism for state asisted suicide, Abortion the killing of Babies because they are an inconvience so I am sorry Ron Paul may make a good senator but No I want a Preside t that believe firmly in family values and true morality.

    • old white guy

      this crap will go on and on. you will not change it at the ballot box. the second amendment is your salvation. only the brave need apply. the home of the brave has become the home of the coward on welfare. carry on.

      • NHPATRIOT

        I think you are correct. I hope for the best but am prepared for revolution. Those on this forum that think we can’t fight them are either cowards or delutional. I bet there is easily 3-5 million, yes million, gun owners who are willing to fight for our country if need be. That would be an army bigger than any ever seen. We may suffer heavey losses but we will win by shear numbers alone, if we do it right and take out the head of the snake first, we won’t have to lose our brothers and sisters in such high amounts though.

        • Kate8

          NHPATRIOT – The MIC has weapons that can blow the eardrums out in a crowd (acoustical crowd-control), frequency weapons and laser weapons that can drop small or large numbers of people in their tracks, nerve gas, neutron bombs and, of course, nukes. I’m sure that is just the tip of the iceberg.

          They could wipe out an entire city of gun-owners in minutes, and that would send a huge chill up the backs of the rest.

          This is what I mean about not being able to fight on their level. We are no cowards, and are not afraid to die. I would rather die than live as a slave. But we are not suicidal, either and, just maybe, there is a better way.

          • Average Joe Patriot

            Couple or three problems with that, Kate. The MIC has some of these weapons, and more sci-fi stuff on the drawing boards, true. But what they bring to the party will be predominantly what they are using (and losing with) in Southwest Asia. Faluja didn’t end Iraqi resistance, and crowd control weapons (even drone bombs) don’t seem to be making much of a dent in a ragtag bunch of Taliban slinking through the hills with cheap AK-47s. That’s the first problem.

            A second problem is that attempting to subdue a million, or two or three million armed Americans on their home turf using American forces presents said forces not only with an obvious conflict of interest (for troops sworn to uphold their oath to the Constitution), but with an insurmountable task. Look at the size of Afghanistan compared to the US. Compare the populations.

            Furthermore, armies always have deserters, disillusioned and war weary. One thing which keeps their number down is that, short of defecting to the other side, they have few options. American troops fighting American citizens on American soil, however…that would be another story. Deserters could, in fact, be defectors, because they’d simply be taking off their uniforms and shazam, they’re home (and welcome back citizens!).

            But that would not be the whole story. Unlike defectors in most situations, these defectors would assimilate immediately into the “rebel” populace, they would be on familiar turf with an innate urge to protect it, they would already have been trained in the latest techniques of modern warfare and familiar with the “enemy’s” tactics, many would know how to organize. And though they might leave their uniforms behind, that is not to say they wouldn’t “requisition” a few intel reports and weapons upon their departure. Possibly even a few of the MIC’s latest sci-fi toys. I wouldn’t sell our troops short so quickly, Kate.

            Not that I’m advising it, mind you, but just how many more Wacos, Ruby Ridges, false flag events, and clear trammelings of the Constitution do we suppose a country born of blood and revolution will put up with before it begins to actually wake up?

            There are some extremely pissed off Baby Boomers out there who’ve been dutifully attending to the soapboxes, the ballot boxes, the jury boxes, and feel quite rightly they’ve been screwed at every turn. Many cannot, in good conscience tell Generations X, Y, and Z that the way to make the system work is by working within the system. That would be disingenuous, and a further betrayal to generations already betrayed beyond reparation.

            Our founders spoke and wrote at great length on this subject: What to do when our inalienable rights are being systematically denied. They weren’t any longer speaking of voting, writing letters of protest, signing petitions, and carrying signs.

            They were talking about carrying guns. Not for use against others’ religious beliefs or disbeliefs; rather, against unlawful taxation, warrantless search and seizure, invasion of privacy, imprisonment without habeus corpus, forced disarmament, conviction and punishment without trial, and any other form of tyranny aimed at depriving individuals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

            Do we think they were kidding? They were just a bunch of colorful loudmouths in wigs and stockings? At the end of the day the red-coated survivors of Bunker Hill, Lexington and Concord didn’t think so. Nor did Cornwallis after Yorktown.

            Don’t be so quick to sell Americans short, Kate. That mistake’s been made before.

          • Kate8

            AJP, I would never sell American patriots short.

            One military patriot said the troops who would uphold their oaths to the Constitution would be about half.

            Don’t forget that many of our troups are foreign-born and know little about our founders intentions. Others are young and socially indoctrinated by our school system, and know little about the Constitution. We have many infiltrators also, who are there to kill our own.

            This, coupled with the move to ‘chip’ our soldiers, using technology that employs mind-control, and the allure of power, all factor in.

            When the big showdown happens, I doubt the MIC will feel any constraints about using their full-scale weaponry. Right now, they are still playing it a bit cool by not unleashing the hell they could, but when they are ready for their big move…

            The end of every cycle of Earth civilization ends in an all-out clash between forces of good and evil, with few survivors to begin again. You know you are near that point when there is extreme polarization taking place among all peoples.

            This is the way of things. The best thing any of us can do is center in Spirit and pray for guidance. Then we can only take it as it comes.

        • Tom Dolan

          It is part of the American tradition that citizens have the right to oppose tyranny by collective armed action. But such action is neither moral nor prudent when persuasion and political methods are possible.
          Regardless of whether one is satisfied with the results of recent elections, free elections offer redress to those who are dissatisfied with current policies. As far as three or four million armed citizens overthrowing the current government (whose source of legitimacy is election or other due proces) watching the movie Zulu may enlighten you on the results of brave men challneging numerically inferior opponents with superior technology. Also what makes you think that those who disagree with you will not resort to armed revolt against you?

      • Richard Pawley

        Voting the bums out hasn’t been tried in a hundred years or more. Don’t give up on that yet. I’ve been saying that the election in 7 weeks is the most important in 50 years but maybe it’s the most important in 100 years. I think enough Americans are waking up to make a difference. Don’t vote against every Democrat just those who voted for the move towards socialism. There are a small handful of decent caring Democrats who are decent people who don’t go with the socialist/Marxist/progressive crap. Likewise don’t vote for a Republican just because they are a Republican. Vote for someone who cares about freedom, limited government, and pay as you go government. The coming election is going to be like no other and you want to be a part of it.

It doesn’t matter if their “Blue Chip” or moderates or that they don’t believe what obumer is doing! If they feel so strongly about it, they should change their party affilliations! When it comes down to it they are going to go with their own party! They count on people like you to be “fair minded”, Don’t fall for it! So there’s a small party of decent caring democrats huh? Why then do they keep the company of corrupt evil deceivers then? This means they are nothing but hippocrits! Are you really that gullible to believe this?

        • Bonnie

          That is the MOST important thing, people are going to have to do something that has been sorely lacking, and that is… educate yourselves. Don’t just ‘vote them all out!’ Educate yourselves to see how they have been voting. There are ample web pages out there that keep tract of voting records of your Senators and Reps. Downsize DC .org is a good one. We’re defeating our purpose if we vote the good ones out. Also, start to let them know that you appreciate their stand against the status quo, and that you ‘got their back!’

    • Lubo

      Let’s KICK ALL THEIR BUTTS out of office come November, except for a few good men and women like the very HONORABLE JIM DEMINT and Michele Bachman. Let’s elect people who have actually read the constitution and believe it and HONOR it, word for word.

      After november, make the dumb puppit kid in the White House prove his citizenship. If he can’t provide sufficient evidence, then impeach him.

      Next item on the list, REPEAL every ounce of legislation this admin has passed to date and then start going back in time, methodically reviewing every piece of legislation passed to date. If it violates OUR CONSTITUTION, then repeal it.

      Then and only then will AMERICA be restored.

    • EddieW

      The Senate has done a great job feathering their nest…one term and retire for life at that salary!!! Probably can’t change it either…they wouldn’t “approve” of that…just like Amendment 28 to the Constitution…they would be under any laws they make for us!!!
      They have it cushy!!!!!!

    Not much of a surprise. With the way they spend and print funny money what would anyone think would happen.I hope you all are prepared for a very long depression,the last time it happened it took a world war to fix it and now with all of our industry out of the country we may find our selves with out any way to fix this mess.Why hasn’t any one one in congress stood up and impeached this imposter? Are they all lining their pockets and getting their share so as to leave this country for some island like the caymans?If this dosent prove that the elite have made their move then I dont know what does.NWO like it or not they are going to force it down your throats.Remember November because thats all we have for now.

      dan az, Oddly enough, I just did some research on the industries, that once prosperous here, just in our area alone. I’ve sound 17(mostly union shops) industries are gone, and are going, within the last 25- 30 years. A lot of the closings, were due to Government intervention, major recalls, EPA, and unions unwillingness to compromise on contracts, as a result the companies closed. A few closings were due to owner deaths & that led to hiring poorly skilled management. One of the last of the big companies here, is headed for Nebraska, I believe the end of this year. When the Feds get involved, it all goes to hell!

    • MSGT JOHN CORREA – USAF (RET)

      Dan Az,

      The reason why the foreign-born Muslim Communist U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama II hasn’t been Impeached is that both U.S. Houses are totally controlled by the liberal socialist communist Democratic Party. God permitting; once we take over both Houses in November, we the patriots must insist that our representatives generate an immediate Impeachment and Deportation against this foreign-born U.S. President. This procedure can legally take immediate effect in accordance with the Constitution of the United States of America. We can then declare all of Obama’s executive orders, nominations, and appointments as NULL and VOID. There are several ways to recover the loss of our economy by having our lost industries return to the U.S. with a written promise to get off their backs with foolish regulations and unreasonable taxation. Unionism must be curbed and prevented from stealing workers monetary dues for political donations by Union Bosses. Agencies such as Homeland Security must be abolished along with other redundant federal agencies that are totally useless. I can remember when the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was our nation’s foe against foreign and domestic enemies without any political ties or interference. The EPA must go. We have have enough oil in the United States that out-numbers that of the Arab world. Simply put; we have enough resources in this country that would restore this nation back to its economic greatness. If any of you ever bothered to read your world history, you will find great nations of the past that destroyed themselves as a result of “greed, corruption, and total moral decadence. Think about this folks, otherwise, this nation will be doomed if we continue to follow the same path as that of past history.

        • Average Joe Patriot

          And that is the key question, isn’t it?

          Just how do We The People make all this wonderful stuff happen? Some have said: “Vote!” For whom, Tweedle Dee? Or Tweedle Dumb?

          Others ask: “But how do we know the elections won’t be rigged?”

          Silly question. You can bet your last useless Fed Reserve IOU they’ll be rigged. You don’t think they’ll leave the fate of the “free” world up to us, do you? We each get one vote. Here’s what They get:

          1. Pre-selection of “acceptable” major candidates
          2. All the air-time they want
          3. Bought- and paid-for pundits
          4. Gerrymandered voting districts
          5. Red-lining rights in voting districts
          6. The ability to purchase entire voting blocs
          7. Real-time control of all campaign tactics
          8. Ownership of voting booths
          9. Ownership of electronic voting machines
          10. Ownership of regional vote-counting machines
          11. Ownership of vote-count reporting media
          12. Ownership of post-election media spin

          …to name a few. But hey! Don’t waste your vote! (Let Them do it for you.)

          Each and every election since JFK (and many prior) have been nothing more than a changing of the guard. The guards may have different faces, but they all follow the same rulebook. I mention JFK because he was perhaps the last president we had who seriously thought he was actually in charge of the United States (he was disabused of that mad notion in no uncertain terms).

          But vote! If it makes you happy. (After all, that is precisely what the whole charade is designed to do; that is all it is for.)

    The reason nobody has stood up to this anti-American administration, is because there is no one left in Washington to abide by the rules and laws that our country was founded on. Our founders knew from the beginning that a free country without the rule of law and leaders that were not God fearing and honest, was a not a free country at all. We the people are on our own now, and if we don’t stand against Washington and its corrupt leaders, we will soon find ourselves in a land our founders originally ran from to start a country free of tyranny and persecution so they and their posterity could live free and succeed in life. Our fate is in the hands of God now, I pray that we can once again defeat evil, the evil in Washington, this November and then get rid of this President soon after ,who wants to rule this country like a dictator.

    • dan az

      He cant be a dictator in all countries only in the ones that dont succeed from the union.Since delaware is its on country than why not succeed and start over with a new union less one small country.

    • Bruce D.

      There are some in Washington that are working their heart to do the right thing such as Ron Paul. You should not lump them all together like that as you invalidate anyone of good will. Everyone should work to keep their own senator in check with e-mails an faxes. Give them credit if they do something right. Let them know if they are doing something wrong. An e-mail to a Congressman is taken in the same light as a poll. One e-mail is considered to represent XXX amount of the population.

      • TIME

        Bruce, Very good points.

        I have said this over and over, you all may feel that sending an email or a fax, letter etc. is a waste of your time.
        I have told you before and will say it again “its then of RECORD” its then fact.

        A phone call is subject to getting lost, that is unless your on a first name base with your Congress and or Senate person like I am.
        I speak with them weekly, and in some cases daily when need be.
        And as well I send in fax’s & emails daily!

        Don’t give in and Don’t give up. Keep the pedal to the metal.
        Push Push and then Push some more. If you don’t think that these wacked out left wingnuts are doing so, you would be 100% WRONG!

        As I noted I speak with these people all the time, in NY they get less than 10% emails and Fax’s let alone phone calls from anyone who opposes this crazyness in DC. Yet just a mear 20% from wacked out left wings nuts jobs.
        That means if just 11% more who don’t agree with whats going on in DC would PLEASE Fax or Email their congress and senate people they would have greater numbers saying NO, then YES.

        People its not hard to grasp.

        Get off your butts and get busy Email – Fax and Phone them until they scream when they see your name!

        If you don’t know how to contact them, USE GOOGLE with their name and all the INFO will be there for you to use.

        So PLEASE I beg you all get busy.

        • Bob

          Time Most Americans are too lazy to email or call their reps. They want someone else to do all the work. You’d be surprised how many in Washington vote against bad bills when they get a few thousand calling or faxing.

          • Craig

            Out here in CA we have boxer and Feinswein. They never answer the phone or return emails that is not a canned form letter. Those 2 communists have screwed over more Americans. They could care less what we think. No amount of emailing will change those twits nanny state minds.

        • Angel

          I have emailed…time and time and time and time again. McCain is back in office and I prayed that he wouldn’t be. I have emailed him on amnesty, cap & trade, Obamacare, S 3002, I have complained against Monasato, and anything else that takes freedom away from the American people. Most of the time I get no rely and when I do, it is pro this type of legislation. I get absolutely NO response from Kyl.

          I am truly afraid that it is too late.They are lining their own pockets and plan to bring America down. They are all in this together. There are a handful, but not many.That is, if it isn’t an act. I am as concerned as the rest of you but I am afraid there is a revolution coming. I don’t think these politicians plan on changing at all. Neither the Democrats OR the Republicans. They are both alike. It is in their plans to bring America down and keep lining their pockets, eliminate population and what better way but through a revolution?

          • Bruce D.

            Evidently your e-mails have had some effect on McCain. He talking a lot differently than he was one year ago. Good job!

          • Angel

            Thank you Bruce D. But I am not so sure that it just isn’t because that it is election time….then back to business as usual. I will keep doing my part however. I know he was for amnesty. Until it got close to the primary. He is still for comprehensive immigration which in my book, is just another word for amnesty.

          • Kate8

            Angel, I hear ya.

            I have called, emailed and snail-mailed, only to get the standard response of “I’ll keep your views in mind”. Right. Boxer, Feinstein. Need I say more. Not once have they budged on their stance.

            From what I’ve seen, especially since BO usurped office, is that they seem determined to push ahead with the agenda handed down to them from the NWO. In fact, they seem gleeful about smacking us in the face, or rendering a good gut-punch, even at the cost of their popularity. They seem to relish our outrage.

            This is part of the plan to make us feel so completely alienated from our government that we will revolt, bringing about collapse of the system. It is deliberate, calculated, and they see us as entirely predictable. We need to be aware that we are playing into their hands.

          • Angel

            EXACTLY Kate. One of my big concerns..( well, they are all big concerns) was this thing he proposed on vitamins…I mean, me health isn’t the greatest and they want me to be taking rat poison (Coumadin Blood thinners) and I can thin my blood just fine and more via supplements. They want us all to die and I have been on McCain’s backside since 2007 and have even TOLD him that I know their game. That they want us to be their slaves and they want us all dead. I even told him, they might win the battle but never to war and God will be judging him…that if he didn’t watch it, he wouldn’t like his future in eternity. I’m not kidding either. I have told him all this and more!

          • Christin

            Angel,
            Keep the good fight up.

            Don’t support McCain with your dollars by buying Budweiser, his wife’s company.
            Demo Kerry’s wife owns Heinz (ketchup), Demo Pelosi’s husband owns (? don’t know which one)Tuna company…
            Most Elites own big Brand-name Companies.. do some research and don’t buy from them… in fact, if someone has time on their hands this would be a good list for us all to see and know about.

            I saw McCain turn due right when Sarah Palin came to campaign for him. Surely she (?) sees he is Progressive, but maybe she felt she had to help him since he lost the presidential election with her on the ticket. I actully think they lost because of the Black American vote for BO.

            I was unhappy with McCain because he put forth a bill that would hinder and stop us from being able to buy natural meds, supplements, vitamins and minerals. That is Big Pharma’s wish and really bad for us.

            Stay alert and vigilant friend.

          • Kate8

            Angel – McCain is a snake, and everyone knows it. That’s why I don’t believe he won the AZ primary by the vote of the people. Unless there were crossover votes again.

            The thing with the nutritional products has come up over and over, and is back again. These weasels are under the order of the WHO to get this passed, removing all access to healthy organic food, supplements, and to outlaw backyard gardens. This falls under the WHO code, or CODUS ALIAMENTARIUS, and actually went into law in the US as of Dec. 31, 2009, and is currently being (as covertly as possible) implemented.

            Big Pharma was established as a means of population reduction, and they have worked tirelessly to discredit natural, God-given healing and health practices. The ‘alternative’ health industry has grown so large, because of the disillusionment of pharma, that it has become a major threat to their plans to keep us sick and dying.

            This is why I have really embraced the study of vibrational and energetic medicine. They can’t take that away from us, no matter what they do! And it’s free!

            I do my research and I know McCain is a snake. He sheds his skin about as often too. I am just afraid if things don’t start looking up in 2011, America is doomed. Ah well, it is all written in the Bible anyways. We knew the end would come eventually. I believe that the Lord is to the point of no return. He is MAD and is going to begin shaking the world with His wrath. Hold onto your seats everyone. It isn’t going to be pretty.

            I’ve written and called both of my Senators (Boxer and Feinstein) and the Representative for the Congressional district where I live (Eshoo), and only Eshoo’s office has bothered to respond, and that was only misrepresented platitudes. The trouble is that these people are just political whores. If you can’t pay them, they won’t do anything for you. Case in point, all three of the people I listed are Democrats, theoretically diametrically opposed to G.W. Bush, but all three of the enthusiastically supported and endorsed the Patriot Act. Why? Because they are whores! They don’t care a rat’s @$$ about Homeland Security. The Patriot Act levies new taxes and fees that they can use to further their feminist, pro-gay anti-American agenda’s.

            So, Vicki and JeffH, do you think that Boxer is going to survive November, or will Fiorina replace her? And, if Fiorina does win, will she be any better? I seem to recall that she did quite a hatchet job on HP back in 2002.

          • Kate8

            Angel, We are in the last days, if people are reading things right. We are at then end of an age, a galactic cycle. All scriptures speak of this time, and tell us when it has occurred before and will occur again. Even science now is bearing this out.

            We are in ‘birth pains’. I don’t think God is mad. I think He is waking people up (known as the ‘quickening’), increasing knowledge and relevlation at a rapid rate. Scripture says that when we see these signs to not lose heart, but to “look up! For our redemption draws nigh”.

            I believe that Earth is preparing for a dimensional shift, and those who allow themselves to be purified by Love will move into the new dimension before the sh*t hits the fan.

            I know many will scoff at this, but I can only tell you that I have spent years in constant prayer and meditation, asking to understand the times and prophecy. Especially this year, it’s like information is being downloaded, so fast I can hardly keep up.

            To those who will mock me, so be it. To those who know of which I speak, take heart. A new age is dawning.

            I think the Lord is filled with joy at this time, because He has prepared a place….

            Don’t let fear control you. Fear keeps us in lower vibrations, locked into this downward spiral. It’s time for us to rise up…

          • JeffH

            Andy Howey, my how memories can be deceptive. Carly Fiorina will beat the liberal Democrat Boxer and Fiorina’s accomplisments are partly resonsible for HP’s success today. She pushed for the purchase of Compaq and was met with heavy internal political resistance. Since she was forcwd out, Compaq certainly has helped power HP to the top.

            She’s an honest conservative candidate with solid conservative values. I’ve had the good fortune to meet her up close and she did not duck any questions with political doubletalk.

            As for Boxer, as part of the liberal/progressive Democratic machine, she’s done enough damage to this nation and California. Time to go Barbara Boxer!

          • JeffH

            Andy Howey, here is an endorsement from a Coalition for Carly group of current and former HP people…

            Carly at Hewlett-Packard
            Carly unites people from various backgrounds and political affiliations. I know, I worked with her at HP and when I heard Carly was running for U.S. Senate in California, I volunteered to help her because of her leadership and record of success at Hewlett-Packard (HP). Those of us who were part of HP, then or now, know firsthand the incredible work that was accomplished after the merger with Compaq and the early effort to place and keep HP at the top of the technology sector. Her leadership style at HP transcended political, cultural and social differences, and I have every expectation Carly will do the same for the people of California and our nation.

            You are right about this being the end times and am familiar with the birth pain signs for Jesus’ return. I didn’t know this was known as the “quickening” when people awaken. Thank you for reminding me to remain joyous as no doubt God is at this time to have His Son come to take His children home.

            Christin, God patterned the Universe to work in this way. It is not random. He has purpose and plan.

            Have you noticed that time seem to be speeding up? Scripture says that in the last days He will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh. All we need to do is allow it. We cannot stop it, but we can resist it.

            Just let the Light come into you. Above all, trust Him, and hold the vision of Love and Grace. Only those who refuse to embrace the “quickening” will be left behind, by their own choice and godless nature.

        • old white guy

          emails are not of the record and are dumped faster than [offensive word removed] through a goose. they may stay on your computer but try and find them on someone else’s.

        Kind of makes one wonder why the elites have allowed him to keep going (Ron Paul).

        • Claire

          The MSM rarely, rarely ever mentions Ron Paul. Perhaps the Liberals do not see him as a “threat.” It is a shame that some of the good ones are left by the wayside when in reality they would have been good for America. It is not fair. Nothing is fair in politics.

        • BrotherPatriot

          I very much like Ron Paul and he’s done some good work for Patriots.

          However, at the same time we can’t blindly follow. Since we know the Elites play both sides of the fields…it stands to reason it is very possible that they have various levels of Moles/Agents. They sometimes make mistakes and give themselves away by body language such as handshakes and hand signals, for example and these have been captured in film & pictures. By following the NWO trail and seeing so many Masons as being part of it…this leads us to the fact that Ron Paul’s father was a Mason.

          So my point is this…I recently watched Ron Paul give the same hand symbol as other Masons such as Bush Jr did/does. I also remember watching an interview of him stating that he was not a Mason but his father was. So obviously I have some concerns about him and I’m not following blindly. I’m keeping my final opinion in reserve about how much influence Ron Paul has in regards to the Elite…both for & against them.

          I have great hope that Mr. Paul is truely a Good man and not something as devious as I mentioned. I’m just trying to absorb as much information and truth about all manner of things and then mentioning what I have seen here on this soap box. In my heart I don’t believe he is a double agent. LoL…God I hope not. But there are some interesting facts concerning him that we should all be aware of…& not just following blindly.

          ^^ That’s what has gotten us into this trouble to being with. >.<

        • Bob

          Kate Ron Paul isn’t that big a threat yet. Wait until 2012 to see how much support he has. First the Media will attack him like they did in 2008.

      • Claire

        Bruce D–I have sent numerous letters and emails to Durbin and other elected officials here in Illinois. All I get is a form letter thanking me for my concern, however, they think they are on the correct path for the welfare of Illinois-America. Phone calls–a secretary says “he is unavailable but she will give him my message.” I guess I will keep trying, but I feel like I am wasting my time, and so do a lot of my friends.

        Please do not let the naysayers and defeatest on this blog site stop you from taking positive action. Of course Barara Boxer is not going to send you an e-mail back saying I was wrong and you were right. If she gets enough of them it will cause her to doubt her ability to get reelected. That is the most you can hope for. Politicians that stratle the fense can be swayed. It is the nature of politics. Many democrats are running away from President Obama because of this during this election period. Politicians that agree with you need to know you support them. They get plenty of negative e-mails every day and need to know that their base is strong.

    • debbie bloomfield

      I agree 100%. This is very well said.

  • algonquin

    I don’t know, the more I learn about this thugocracy, the more leery I become. Is it possible that all of Obamas partners in crime, the unions, acorn, liberals, will subvert this coming general election? I’m not sure, and that worrys me.

    • Angelicsweep

      Your fear is one that I have felt since obama rammed obamacare down our throats despite the public outcry. It was like he wasn’t worried that once this was passed, it meant certain death to the democrap party because he was going to come out on top not matter what. It could just be that his narcissist personality just can’t admit defeat or the fact that people could actually go against him, but somehow I feel it is more than that. He has squirrelled away stimulus money from the first one on…that is why they can not tell the people WHERE all of it went. It is going to be used to buy votes come the election to insure he stays in power. Why do you think that right here at election time he wants ANOTHER “stimulus”…sure he does, so he can buy more votes! There is no telling what obama promised those dolts who voted for his disasters since everything was behind closed doors! Guess the only thing we can do is be on guard Nov 2 to any kind of voter fraud being made by documenting EVERYTHING we see that is suspicious.

      • Christin

        I believe Congress FEAR the Puppet Masters-Wealthy Elite Class to whom they have sold their souls who pull their strings and keep them in their power positions with money and prestige MORE than they fear We The People who will try to VOTE them out. Some Congressmen/women have germandered their districts… unconstitutional BTW… and we will not be able to vote them out unless that is changed.

        We can Change the Leadership in Congress by voting for Consittutional Conservatives/Tea Party or Republicans so that Nanc can be dethroned. The Left is already attacking Rep. John Boehner who is next up to be Speaker of the House if Republicans sweep up in November. They want to make sure we don’t have strong conservative leadership to undo the damage they’ve purposely done to our country.

IT WILL scare you to death & make you sick at your stomache, but READ THE BOOK than you will understand exactly what we are facing with this adminestration.

    • Andy Howey

      As someone (or multiple someones) has pointed out in this thread, unions have out-lived their usefulness. They should be abolished. Let the workers keep the money they would otherwise pay in union dues. By the same token, American-based corporations should be heavily penalized for every American worker they displace for overseas workers. In either case, neither should be allowed to contribute to or influence elections.

      As for political contributions, they should be limited only to individuals (not corporations) who are legally eligible to vote in this country, and they should limited in amount. These contributions should go into (a) shared pool(s) appropriate to the office/position up for reelection in order to level the playing field so that all candidates can get equal funding. Do away with personal war chests. And prohibit super-wealthy people like Soros from buying or otherwise influencing elections. This should apply to local-, state-, and national-level elections.

      As for vetting candidates, especially for national-level elections, that responsibility should be taken away from the political parties. There should be an independent “agency” responsible for ascertaining that any candidate intending to run in a given race is fully qualified (constitutionally, legally, etc.) to hold that position if elected, and that agency should have full transparency and accountability to the voting public. Any attempts at tampering should have severe and immediate consequences to the vetting agency AND to the candidate(s) involved. If necessary, there could be state-level analogs to this agency to deal with state-level elections.

          I don’t remember that you made any meaningful suggestion — just a vapid rant. Do you have any better idea(s)? If so, let’s hear them.

          In any case, something needs to be done. The bastards in Washington are bleeding us.

          As far as funding is concerned, dissolve the Dept. of Homeland Security, and use some of the money from that for what I suggested. It wouldn’t have to be a very large organization — 1000 people at the very most.

          • Bob

            Obama should hire every American to work for the gov’t. Then he can stop people from bitching. What do you think Andy?

          • Andy Howey

            Just like “Old White Guy” — no valid counter-argument. Obunghole should kicked out on his marxist, pinko, islamophilic @$$. I don’t really trust any politican. Like lawyers, which many of them are, they are just professional liars. They tell you what you want to hear in order to be elected. If people would stop bitching and moaning and take some civics classes and learn how government should really be conducted, then the idea I proposed could work, especially with a levelled playing field pulling the rug out from under the “professional” politicians feet. We should also do away with the two-party system, because nothing useful is accomplished that way.

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    Common sense is lost. Remember in November! We must vote out those who are only there for the power and to become elitist. God is our only hope!

      How do you determine who’s there to “become elitist”? I agree that we should remind them that they work for us, not the other way around, but short of a massive recall, how do you rein them in?

        Vote them all out. Except Ron Paul. Untrained monkeys could do a better job of representing us then the current Congress.

  • Charolette

    This president just does not get it and never will. Another stimulus such as the one mentioned in this article will never work and will only make the current economic situation worse which will result in more Americans out of work and more illegal immigrants employed in this country. He wants to do whatever is necessary to attract more illegals to this country to work since the managers only hire these type of people so they can continue to pay them under the table and not pay any taxes. These managers need to be thrown in jail for making this situation worse today. The small business owners do not trust Obama and his hidden agenda. They are too smart to employ more staff and end up paying big when the healthcare reform hits not to mention all the added taxes. What we need is a Republican in the White and control of the house and senate by the Republicans. They are a much more fiscally conservative party and are definitely not as corrupt as the Democrats. Get a grip everyone! Also, if you think Obama cares about any of you, you are sadly mistaken since he only cares about the elite groups. Wake up America before it is too late.

        I totally intend to try to get the Republican in the distict elected for the House, but he is already aware he is treading on thin ice with me and that I am monitoring his every move. I will only put up with the Dem that is in there now again if he gets reelected, but it won’t be with my vote. He’s one of the Dems Pelosi told it was ok to ride the fence and vote conservative when he knew his district would be looking because this is a very conservative district. Now that they’ve reconvened I’m about to let him know how I feel that he sided with Obama and the labor unions on the last spending, supposedly to keep teachers and other state workers on the job. What a lie! Maybe that’s the way it is in other staes, but not here. You don’t even want me to tell you how I feel about labor unions. I HAVE NOTHING POSITIVE TO SAY ABOUT THEM. My family has had three experiences, none of them good, with labor unions. Like cancer we need a cure for them. The best cure I know is to get rid of them!

        • Bruce D.

          NJ Gov Cris Cristie said Obama gave NJ one billion dollars and with that money the previous governor gave to the teachers unionstheir paychecks and benefits. It was a one time deal so now the state cannot come up the money on their own to keep the unions pay and benefits artifically high.

    I see you put your heart into that letter. Good job. I was against burning the Koran but now I see everyone trying to destory this man I have changed my mind to burn it. Muslims all over were burning our flag and threatening death to all Americans for this one man’s opinion. For me it is not a religious issue it is a political one. Muslims are trying to turn it into a religious issue. Followers of the Koran say it teaches them to kill in the name of God. It also teaches them to kill in the name of the Koran. They will kill if you print a comic strip about Mohammad. They wiil kill you if you are a Christian trying to help flood victims in Pakistan. They kill their own people with suiside bombs for no apparent reason. They seem to be willing to kill everyone and anyone in the name of God and use the Koran as their justification for doing it. Muslims have turned the Koran into the ‘Book of Death’. They have no one to blame but themselves for that.

        It is unfortunate that Muslims are doing everything they can to turn us againt them. Muslims have enjoyed great freedom in this country with great respect shown towards them. It is unfortunate that they do not show any appreciation for our goodwill. They are starting to promote themslves as victims of American oppression inexchage for our good thoughts and goodwill. Americans are getting fed up with this whole idea of American oppression when all we are trying to do is go to work, pay our bills, and spend time with our family. Muslims along with liberals are forcing us into a fight we do not want and did not start. At some point you have to say enough is enough.

    • JeffH

      I find it utterly amazing that the anti-muslim sentiment has grown enormously since the O’man was appointed POTUS.

      Nine years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, one thing remains a certainty, some politicians and the MSM can stir the nation’s darker impulses to tar all Muslims with the same hatred most people feel toward the 19 fanatics who killed nearly 3,000 people in New York and Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon.

      Case in point: Terry Jones, a nobody in this country up until recently. He has becomes a national media topic. The MSM promoted this story.
      Defense Secretary William Gates called the pastor and urge him not to go through with the Quran burning. Gen.Petreaus gave it creedence as did the POTUS, who condemned the burning as inflammatory yet believes it constitutionaly OK to build a “tribute to the terrorist” mosque at Ground Zero.

      At least one newsource, Fox News, said that it will not cover the burning of the Quran if Pastor Terry Jones follows through on his plan to burn copies of Islam’s sacred book

      Most polls show Americans opposed to plans to build the center there. Is the POTUS a pro Constituion American or an anti-American Muslim sympatizer? Which is it Mr. POTUS? Most of us already know the answer to that question.

      30 percent of Americans say they have a “favorable opinion” of Islam, according to a Pew Research Center survey in August. Five years ago, 41 percent did. Who and what has influenced America to change their opinions? The propaganda repeatedly broadcast by the MSM for the powers that be. Turmoil is a good thing to them!

      I do believe there is an increased acceptance of American Muslims though.

      • Bruce D.

        The mosque has a lot to do with increased Muslim dislike. Muslims are turning it into a racial and a political issue. As Muslims start to get more support from liberals they will start to receive more comtempt from others. Prior to 9/11 I have never heard anyone say anything bad about Muslims. Now that I see they Muslims bunrning our flag and wishing death on all Americans I am beginning to see that this is only the start of a long war that will not end in my lifetime. The Muslims will push hard to expand anti-American sentiment. In return people who liked them or who had no interest in them either way will start to dislike them. They want a religious war. They want Sharie Law as much as liberals want big government and socialism.

        • JeffH

          Bruce D., it’s been my opinion from the very beginning that we can never win a “religious” war. That is the war the Islamic jihadists terrorists are fighting against non-believers around the world. They’ve been fighting their “holy” wars forever and will continue fighting them when we are long gone. The Russians couldn’t beat ‘em and ultimately we won’t beat ‘em either. Look where we are at now, economically and politically a broken country. The NWO people love it.
          Muslims are integrating throughout societies around the world.
          What about Muslims in EU countries? Worse than what we are faced with here in the USA. The total Muslim population, including immigrant and native born, in Western Europe is about 20 million of the EU’s 500 million residents as compared to between 6-8 million in America.

          • Bruce D.

            I agree with you JeffH. I do think a religious war is being forced on us whether we like it or not. The opposition to Muslims has little to do with the Muslim religion. I am not against pulling out of Afganistan because I do not think the people there are intelligent enough to maintain their free will. They will live and die by whoever can exert the most force over them. I think the Iraqies have a chance. Make no mistake though, pulling out of Afganistan will not stop their religious war against us. This is just the beginning and no amout of apeasement will stop them. For Muslims it will always be about religion. That gives them their moral authority and energy to kill and be killed. Their mindset is to kill for God and you are not going to change that by pulling out of Afganistan or stopping a preacher and fifty other people from burning the Koran. We need to realize we are now in a religous war even though it seems stupid and is stupid. It is not one of those wars that you can end by just not showing up. They are bringing it here. Even if we withdrew all our support from Israel and let the Muslims exterminate all Israelies it would not change what is happening now. They are intent on bringing Sharia law to the Unted States and President Obama has given them the hope of it being very possible.

          • Kate8

            Bruce D., they are using any wedge to stir up strife. Religion, race, class, ideology, sexual preference, and any other thing they can use to play people.

            I think they’re just throwing everything out there and hoping at some point someting will erupt. No doubt, if it’s not soon enough to suit their timeframe, they’ll make something happen.

            The thing is, if we the people didn’t play into it, it couldn’t work.

            Bruce D,
            I think you are right… they are forcing a religious war on us along with everything else kate8 mentioned.

            You hear oblahblah say (aka. lie) we are not at war with Islam, but the “small” group of Hamas…yea sure. But WE know that Islamists are here to create chaos and force their way of life and (sharia) law on ALL people.

            Today on the news islamists were burning a life size obamy figure because of the minister that was going to burn some korans in America… I found that ironic that they seem to hate him, too, along with the rest of America.

            HE’s been on their side from the beginning bowing to their kings, visiting their mosques, giving appology tours, hiring devout muslims to work in Homeland Security, speaking memorized verses from the koran in perfect dialect, supporting the Ground Zero mosque, and praising islamists as a peaceful people, and condeming the koran burning in the USA.

            And yet, what did this get him… hate… I don’t think these people will ever know what true agape love from God ever is.

You then threw in a few anti-American feelings or traditions on the subject of Pastor Terry and pigs’blood. Pastor Terry is nothing more than an ego tripping charlatan and didn’t deserve one minute of fame. You seem to want to “rejuvenate your body” by destroying someone else. That sounds very Islamic too me and you want to become (in action) what you deplore.Please do keep up your love for America and your sincerity and God Bless.

    • Bruce D.

      Probably Eddie47d if you suck up enough all American Muslims will become leftests. Isn’t that what Obama and the liberals are all about. Create a voting block no matter what you have to do or say to get it.

    • honeybadger

      Where are the anti-American feelings you allude to eddie47d? I suspect that I am American as much as ANY, and certainly more than SOME! Personally I am in total agreement with Mr Ennis, TOTAL! Just for the record you sound as though YOU are the one in need of rejunevation, and should you check I believe you are certain to discover your opinion is DEFINITELY in a minority! Do you know the definition of ‘charlatan’? Why would you refer to this Minister of the Gospel as a ‘quack’, is it because he felt the desire to express HIS beliefs according to HIS scriptures? He is not DEMANDING you believe him or ELSE. If he wants to burn this ‘book’ why not? You are being ‘allowed’ to criticize him, label him a charlatan by the same ‘rights’ that he is denied (something wrong with this ‘photo’). I am from the SAME period as Mr. Ennis, what period are YOU from? There is something wrong in AMERICA today!

      • JeffH

        honeybadger, don’t put much credence into fast eddie’s comments. He proves daily his lack of comprehension and credibility with his mis-information.

        • eddie47d

          Only a different opinion Jeff .Not like you tired robotic responses to everything. Since you agree with the above commentor that means you would also throw pigs blood. I wouldn’t respect either one of you and I will stand by my “minority” opinion.

          • JeffH

            fast eddie, I do agree with honeybadger’s assessment of you and your constitutional right to criticize openly.
            You’ve made a typical liberal ad-lib with your “pigs blood” statement.
            Those words came from your mouth, not mine or honeybadgers.

          • eddie47d

            That’s hardly a typical liberal comment. It’s a comment for her and apparently you to show some decency . You want your beliefs (church,bible) desecrated? Apparently so or you would have taken a different approach.

    • Greyhawk

      I do not have to agree with Pastor Terry to support His Right To Demonstrate any way he wants if it does not directly cause physical harm to others. As for my own BBQ and Koran Burning, I have not done that, but may do it as a way of saying what I think about Islam, It’s Founder and of the Words contained therein.

      • Kate8

        I don’t see any problem with a small group of private citizens gathering together and burning Korans as a symbolic gesture of neutralizing their power and influence over America.

        RADICAL ISLAM IS OUR ENEMY. THEY WANT TO KILL US. They make no pretense otherwise. They engage in all manner of symbolic victory against us.

        By all means, do whatever it takes to undermine this evil. I do not think they deserve our respect at all. If they want to live here and assimilate, and love America, that’s one thing. But I refuse to show any respect to a religion/political system that seeks to enslave us.

        The NWO is using them as useful idiots now, to help them bring down America and the world. But when they are no longer useful, they, too, will be destroyed. The NWO has no use for any religion, and it serves them to pit one against another.

          Islam in general is our enemy. No such thing as “radical islam”, for both words have the same meaning. Their wordly ideology is very similar to other cults, like progressive marxism. In other words, if you disagree with their ideology, then you are a racist bigot or a non-believer. See the likeness in these wordly belief systems? Why do you think all these progressive bloggers defend these murderous people? Anything they can do to bring down America seems to be a common thread with both belief systems of which neither have anything to do with GOD. It is the false religion that the Holy Scripture speaks of.

        Grayhawk- Have you read the Talmud lately? What then do you have to say about the Zionists who run our country, you know, TPTB- the powers that be. Why do people hate the writings of the Koran so much and pay no attention to the Talmudic volumes that call all non-Jews Goyum, or worse than a dog. Call for Jesus to be boiled in excrement, and advocate stealing from Goy and molesting the infant children of Goyum. (that’s Ashkenazi Jews, not true Torah Jews.)

  • Bob Wire

    So the power “collective bargaining” is at the bottom of all our “woes”?

    I would think Unions no different from any other “affiliation”, some good and some bad.

    Unions across the board are not that strong anymore, haven’t been for some time.

    While I surly agree with the assessment, the influence of special interest on Capital Hill goes a long way in explains today”s sad state of affairs, it’s not money from “labor”

    Today, seems we point the finger at “labor” ~ most fitting for this crowd of small time investors, triple dippers and day traders.

    It all about dividing up the “pie” and who gets what.

    Profit is not a naught word ~ “until” someone is making a profit off of you. It is then, we take offense to the idea.

    Why not look somewhere else?

    • ValDM

      Bob,
      You are so far out in left field about unions, it’s truly mind-boggling. Are you a memeber of a union? I have been on various occasions, and I can tell you that they are WAY out of control now. ALL gov’t workers are unionized except the higher-ups. Do you like paying a unions wage to someone that can barely move thru their day and accomplish nothing? Gov’t. workers currently “earn” almost double their counterparts in private industry. We aren’t “picking” on the working class, because these leeches AREN’T WORKING!

    • alpha-lemming

      Don’t confuse “unions” (government variety) with “labor unions”. Although I don’t think I’d be propping the latter up based on Boston “Big-dig” 500% over budget, and shoddy workmanship killing motorists. Government sanctioned extortion and a home for the mediocre (at best) seems a more proper qualifier for labor unions, but I understood the article a little differently.

      Private sector salary/perks/bennies etc….. ~$60K. Government (unions) salary/perks/bennies……… ~$125K.

      Private sector unemployment…… 10% (REAL # calculated at 15-17%)
      Government unemployment……. 3%

      As I understand the English language, this degree of discrepancy disqualifies government union employees the title of public “servants” and places them in a class of “the privileged” or “the kept”. THAT’S what the voters are livid about.

      • Christin

        You hit the nail on this one Alpha-L!
        Public Servants NOT Priviledged Servants.

        But I would add that the people are also outraged that most UNIONS are LIBERAL- DEMOCRAT leaning and give cash contributions to progressive Demos to strengthen their union dues/power scheme on the working class who may not agree with that power in office, thus putting Liberal-Demos in power on the Local, State & National stage.

        I was a Teacher for many years (not retired, but home raisng kids) and we HAD to pay a dues to the Teacher Union. I was so busy trying to do a great job teaching and earn a living that I really never knew much about it. The appointed Teacher Union district lady would come to visit us in our school and befriend us and ask us if we needed anything… she cared (so we thought.) Years later I found they supported the liberal democrat agenda and that was NOT my position and I’d rather not have my money go to them for THEIR gain to corrupt the system.

        I might add I’d rather my school taxes levied on my ownership of property NOT go to government run public education. My kids go to private Christian school (where God is welcome) and we would LOVE to put our TAXES toward that school of OUR choosing than the indoctrination wrong teaching gov schools. WE should ALL have control over our families and lives (FREEDOMS)… I WANT SCHOOL VOUCHERS.

        AGAIN… forced to put money where LIBERALS want it. NOT RIGHT.

        And we wonder how they got into power… they have stolen money from EVERY pocket.

        • 45caliber

          They not only have stolen money from every pocket, they spend it to buy more votes. One reason they want amnesty for illegals. Since most illegals are taking advantage of those “free” programs, they would be more likely to vote for politicians who promise to increase them.

            So True!

    • honeybadger

      I don’t believe ‘collective bargaining is at the bottom of our woes’ however if it is not all that good, why not rid yourself of it? When the USA is going under, why can’t the UNIONS along with everyone else, help? Everything that needs doing CANNOT be done all at one time, WAKE UP! Start SOMEWHERE, then move to something else, fix it then move again, this is how things get done.

      • 45caliber

        You are correct. But again, the unions are for unions only. They make as much as four or five times what many Americans can make – and they featherbed as well. They will work with others on some things but not when it comes to themselves. While I understand their motives, it also means that they cannot work with most individuals – and if the individuals are unionized by force, they will not make any more than they do now or the companies they work for will close. The companies who have these unions (mostly auto companies) cannot compete with foreign companies – even here in the US. I prefer to buy American, but I cannot find ANY clothing made here now. The “American” cars are primarily made overseas and then a couple of parts are installed here to make it American-made at a cost that doubles what foreign cars are. And the quality is poor for much of their inventory as well.

        • Angel Wannabe

          45, I worked for a clothing manufacturer, which were Unionized. The Ladies Garment Workers Union, back in my early twenties. I was only there a short time, thankfully. I was on probation and not fully “IN” the Union yet. In return, if they’re was full fledged Union workers, who had no work, and I did, I had to relinquish the work.

        Bottom line, these progressive liberals run around spewing their hatred for the BIG CEO’S, but the fact is, their combined weight in this fiscal disaster outweights EVERY CEO in the COUNTRY! How could ANY business survive a workforce that expects to make six figues for building a DUMB car boggles the adult mind!

    Now we have obama that cares nothing about the people unless you are in a union or special interest group… It’s just a matter of time before he will aid in the collapse of the US by way of union pensions and entitlement programs.

  • eddie47d

    Good article Bob but no solutions to fixing our infrastructure problems. You leave out too much in how government can pay private contractors to fix our aging bridges. These contractors won’t be fixing them for free. As we grow, more roads and bridges are needed and someone has to come up with the money. On the subject of government employees. I do agree some never seem to appreciate the good benefits they get and are always demanding more. I’ve seen many dedicated govt. workers and some put in long hours(and overtime).I have also seen govt. workers sitting around and taking up space. You can see the same work ethic in private business although they are more motivated by the threat of loosing their job. Greed at the top doesn’t help anyone’s moral in our present day workforce.There was a time when you looked up to the boss or owner. You really appreciated his ability in creating those jobs. Now these upper CEO’s make so much money they end up destroying companies and it’s all a shell game to them. Their work ethics stink and that hurts the moral of those getting shafted below. A bad combination for some companies. Many CEO’s don’t care about the work force like they did 30 years ago. Workers are no longer apart of their family only expendable parts. You’re only a body reporting to a cubicle or an assembly line at some offices. It’s a here today gone tomorrow philosophy so moral has taken a hit in the American workforce. Public employees do need to be more appreciative of their jobs and give back(in work ethics) alittle more.

  • THINK ABOUT

    Eddie47d, your comment was very good, the problem is not the low union worker, it’s the executive officers making their millions and getting millions for getting fired after a bad job. I am thinking the low union workers should join the union of executives. Their wages are counted towards the cost of employment and it makes the union worker look like they are getting large 6 figure salaries but that is not the case, it is on the average. I have been saying for years now if you pay the executives millions they will only buy so many tv, cars and other goods. If you pay the workers a decent salary then this economy will start growing again, but not by the products and goods going into the executives domains. Hate Obama or not, getting our jobs back from the NAFTA program signed by Clinton and passed by republician congress has hurt this nation. We are spending tax dollars for companies which takes our jobs elsewhere. Do you think they purchase American goods and pay taxes here, dream on, it does not happen. It is going to have to be USA all the way.

    • DaveH

      Think,
      While some of them are no doubt overpaid, the executives’ salaries are wholly the business of the owners of the company, nobody else’s. Just like how you spend your money should be nobody else’s business.
      If a sports team identifies a player that can put their franchise on the map and gain them a much better gate, then it makes economic sense for them to offer a seemingly huge salary to get their man. So, it is with a company. If that seemingly overpaid executive can double or triple or quadruple their profit, then it makes sense for them to pay his big salary.
      Don’t blame high executive pay for our current economy. We have lost many of our companies because it is just not competitive for them to stay and pay the high wages, high taxes, and high regulatory costs that now dominate our country.
      We can ignore the outlandish salaries that some industrious executives make, or we can raise hell, get the government involved (they dearly love that), and turn our country into the egalitarian paradise that is Cuba. Your choice.

      • eddie47d

        In theory that should work but all too often greed gets in the way. As a Positive example we could use technology. Some of their products costs thousands of dollars to make. These companies know they can’t get the consumer to buy such an expensive product so they take a chance and lower the price. The public buys like crazy because of the affordability and the company makes millions. Big Pharma is the Negative example of consumers be damned. The CEO’s know they have them over a barrel and they rake in billions just for themselves. Research can cost millions so drugs can be expensive to start off with but once the manufacturing process is perfected the price of the product should drop like a lead balloon. (almost every drug on the market cost pennies on the dollars). Did theses Ceo’s lower the costs? Seldom,and they knew a persons life depended on these drugs and they had no other place to get these life saving drugs. They made themselves rich and a few shareholders too at the public’s expense.They kept on charging $50-500 or more for a drug only costing about $2-10. This caused healthcare costs to skyrocket and endangered the economy. YES that is the publics business and their CEO’s are nothing but criminals.Will they be prosecuted? Never! It was right for the public to demand change from these corporate thieves and some products have come down in price. One solution to stopping them is to do what allot of corporations do . Send our business overseas. Buy cheaper drugs from foreign sources and skin those greedy thieves at their own game but that would also hurt America. Some choice.

        • a progressive nightmare

          eddie47d, Since you have called all our CEO’s criminals, then how about our elected leaders in Washington? Do you think that running up a 13 trillion dollar debt with 125 trillion in unfunded liabilities may be criminal? You seem to lack basic commom sense when it comes to people and money. I guess Obama, Peolsi and Reid are not greedy? I guess you place your trust in government employees but not the business man and/or woman who creates jobs in a free market system. Those people who worked hard and played by the rules that govern them in a free and open market economy.

          If I, as a business owner, decide that the man or woman who took my competition to the top is worth $10,000,000, then I guess that is my decision to make, now isn’t it? Or are you saying that Obama would be better to make that decision for me? I think what you are saying is that you are a socialist and none of us should have the right to hire or fire much less pay people what the market demands?

          If a business becomes a monopoly, then we already have laws on the books to handle that situation. i.e. Judge green in the 80′s who broke up AT&T. You must have competition in a free market system or it is not a functional system. Competition is one of the major market forces in an open free economy. In other words, government cannot fix our problems however they can make it worse, much worse. That would be a very negative force, would it not? If you want cheaper drugs, then it will require market competition to achieve that goal. Do away with all the dryconian government regulations and you will witness your drug cost go down. Increase those government regs and you will see your drug costs increase, significantly. Just wait and see what happens to our healtcare systems and drug costs under this new socialist obamacare law. If you are lucky enough to get it. I guess you, as a supporting commrade, will get it for free, correct?

He is already being demonized and attacked by the far Left as they don’t want us to have a strong Conservative who will lead the poeple to repeal this unconstitutional cr@p passed by 111th congress forced by BO. We can continue to weedout the Rinos in 2012.

        Stay the course my friends.

      • 45caliber

        Voting for a write-in candidate is a waste of votes. They will never win since not enough people know who to write in. I wonder if that isn’t Lyn’s plan; split the conservative vote so his Democrat friends win.

          We did it in VIRGINIA, 45cal, and it worked but it taakes a little time. This year we had a congressional election and it will change here I am hoping, for the last 20yr it been the same tired old CONGRESSMAN, the DO NADDA king but in NOV. the votes will be counted. I hope to see the hange that we wanted 2 yr. ago. BACK THEN I WROTE IN ANYONE NOT A DEM. well this year we get a choice, wonder of wonders. SO write ins do work

      Take the time to watch this 15 min video…it’s worth your time & reinforces what is beeing said about radical Islamic views & their goals.

      No other religion calls for the destruction of all other religions until only their belief is left on this earth, beats & treats their women in such a way, or even has their children behead their captives/enemies as Islam does. Seriously? What more must we endure to see Islam for what it is?

      We must research, discuss & reveal what they have been saying & doing down through history.

      We must…Wake Up.

  • 2WarAbnVet

    Well, when you’ve bought 43% of the votes with your give-away programs, you only need another 8% of the ignorant youth, and starry-eyed libs to keep you in power. We have a lot more “Constitution haters” than that. I honestly fear for the future of our country.

    • 45caliber

      2WarAbnVet:

      I agree. There are far too many people nursing at the government’s tit. Many work for the government and now that it is coming out that they pay way more than private industry does, I can see why they want to work there. No real work and they get paid more to do it. Last I heard 53% of the people in the US work for the feds, state, or local governments. That doesn’t even count those on welfare – and I would bet that there were more on Welfare than the 5% I hear about from MSM. The rest of us support them.

  • 45caliber

    I EXPECT the GOP to do the following next spring:

    1) Repeal Oblamacare.

    2) Repeal all stimulus spending not yet spent.

    3) Reenact the laws banning the death tax.

    4) Reduce spending levels to balance the budget.

    5) Build up the military instead of trying to reduce it.

    6) Reduce Welfare costs.

    7) Seal the border and start getting rid of the illegals.

    8) Reduce all foreign aid to only aiding when a disaster such as an earthquake occurs. (We can’t ‘buy’ friends!)

    9) Get out of the business of giving student loans.

    10) Require all banks to loan money ONLY to responsible people.

    11) Get Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac off the loan business as soon as possible.

    12) Close the Department of Education and several other departments such as HUD.

    13) Freeze the government payroll and government pay.

    14) Put all Congress on riding economy class on passenger planes rather than private planes. (Make Nancy pay for her own rides.)

    15) Institute a move by the IRS and the GA to audit the Congressmen for taxes and “expenses”.

    I could keep going but I think you know what I mean.

      Yessir buddy, you and I are in the same book, same page and on the same line!

      Agreed 45caliber.

      AND…
      16. Reform the TAX codes …Abolish the IRS
      17. Abolish the FED
      18. Repeal TAX restraints on business to bring production back to America
      19. Reform Homeland Security to PROTECT Americans Citizens and stop calling them Terrorists and take muslims off that payroll(or Abolish it)
      20. Reform Schools by using the voucher system and teaching TRUE American History, Free Enterprise Economics, and the study of the Constitution/ Amendments and other Founding Father’s Papers.

            The only thing that our enemy understands is brute force and once we let our guard down, game over. We better get busy about the business of strengthening our military, and soon, and it needs to be a continuing process.

    Indeed…dumping cash in the form of a stimulus is a bandaid that won’t do a damn thing to help America or her people. However, so many people still sleep and don’t bother to do their research to find out what the truth is…that Obummer & the rest of his mafia thugs get away with it at first until the damage that was done begins to reveal itself due to its very nature.

    It’s so very sad what we as a nation have degenerated into. I’m sure our forefathers are spinning in their graves at the lack of respect for their sacrafices. Not to mention the ground work they laid out for our Government that has been allowed to be perverted even with the multiple fail safes that were put in place to protect it from such a situation from happening…including the shredding of the Constitution down through the years that has been eroding our “unalienable rights”. However, not all of us have been asleep or in the very least…such as in my case…have finally woken up to the truth and are trying to take the steps to help make a stand for the very future of our Children.

    Below, here I have taken the liberty to copy/paste some excellent comments by Patriots in a previous article from this site on the October surprise that was put out earlier this year in July…I sincerely hope neither Anthony, Kate8 or the administrators take offense at my attempt to help educate about what has been happening to America. I honestly feel these comments need to be reiterated and only have America’s best interest at heart. Heed these words, research what is said and you’ll find only truth in History to verify it.

    July 16, 2010 at 9:01 am
    Actually, Chip’s suggestion that a manufactured event being the only way Barry gets TWO terms (can you say Jimmy Carter) isn’t far-fetched at all. I’ve alrady read several articles discussing just that. And, this is where it starts to get tricky.
    1)In my lifetime, We’ve had at least four false flag attempts that have taken us either into a military conflict, or done away with some percentage of our “inalienable rights” and/or our so-called prosperous economy.
    A)Gulf of Tonkin
    B)Iranian Hostage Scandal
    C)Oklahoma City Bomboing
    D) – 9/11 -
    I’m sure many of you could name quite a few more, but these come to mind almost immediately. The bombing in Oklahoma City used a rookie CIA employee (duped?) as the vehicle to achieve that. 9/11 gave us Patriot Acts I & II and an unwarranted war. Which as many now verify (never on TV, tho’) that it was about grabbing energy from another part of the world, without due cause, except greed. We are building a gas pipeline up around the Afghan/IRAQ region of the planet and those resources do belong to those peoples, not us.
    Back home, here, this Oil Rig disaster makes Katrina seem like nothing to be alarmed about, ever. Except, there are still thousands of families who will probably never return to their original homes, ever.
    I also heard that a wanted side effect of this Obama disaster is the clearing out of poor peoples all along the gulf coastline, so the bankers can then take it all over and resell for purposes of vacationing resorts, etc., like what we see all along the Florida coastline. By the time the oil mess goes away completely, they should have possession of just about everything. It is said that most of them in that area are mostly on foodstamps, etc., or they are retirees who will be dead in the near future anyway. So, there ya go….
    From the NY Times, July 14th / Asia Pacific section online, there’s this parapgraph (you can go google it up for the rest) -
    “WASHINGTON — In an echo of the debates over the discredited intelligence that helped make the case for the war in Iraq, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday released more than 1,100 pages of previously classified Vietnam-era transcripts that show senators of the time sharply questioning whether they had been deceived by the White House and the Pentagon over the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident.
    Now, marry that information to the fact that on a phone call from JFK, from Seattle the night before flying to Dallas, to his Chief of Staff (the audio tape says), Kennedy was planning on bringing all of our soldiers home before the ’64 Elections (which would have assured JFK got two terms).
    [Chip should do a singular JFK in-depth article, I have several resources myself that I would share to get him started]
    Then, let’s move up in time, and advise everyone that if you haven’t seen LOOSE CHANGE by now, then you might as well stay under that pet rock you bought. Google it up on Youtube and make your own decisions. Just know that the War in IRAQ was for (not oil) gas reserves, HUGE gas reserves that were found in the region… we’re talking over a trillion $$$ for just that, alone. Then, if you keep up with the news, yhou know two things to be true -
    A) Geologists have estimated there is at least another $trillion in minerals in Afghanistan, which will keep us there in some fashion for the next ten years.
    B) Every time the US and Britain are in Afghan territory, the production of poppy plpants goes thru the roof and heroin production becomes an estimated 98% of GNP; when our forces leave (?), it falls to 3-5%. Remember Charlie Wilson’s War? Go check out PatriotinExile.com webpage for some other interesting reading that won’t get discussed on the BOOBTUBE while yer eatin your dinner.
    Here’s a quote from a very famous man -
    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government; lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
    - Patrick Henry
    If you go to ActIndependent.org, and read today’s posting, there’s a video included showing Webster Tarpley discussing how our own Governemtn is now admitting they “allowed” the underwear bomber to pass thru Customs last Xmas.
    “The Detroit Christmas bomber was deliberately and intentionally allowed to keep his US entry visa as the result of a national security override issued by an as yet unknown US intelligence or law-enforcement agency with the goal of blocking the State Department’s planned revocation of that visa. This is the result of hearings held on January 27 before the…”

    Or – read up and watch video of:
    Nigerian Terrorist Patsy Yet Another CIA Ploy in US-backed Buildup of al Qaeda in Yemen Civil War.
    [Remember - al qaeda is the name of our own Government's database listing of supposed terrorists around the globe - not a specific terrorist organization similar to HAMAS]
    Then, for those of you who just can’t seem to shake the sleep from your eyes… listen to a Black Man discussing the absurdity of blacks being dominated by the Dem Party and how they still keep voting for them. It’s called:
    Examining Black Loyalty to Democrats…..

    [change the dash to a dot when pasting into a browser window]
    Since the days of FDR, the Dem Party has had a stranglehold on this Country like nothing I’ve ever seen in prior history documentation (other than the 50 years of Repubs after the Civil War, but with no Central Bank)
    Since Woodrow Wilsonwent along with the Bankers and Wall Street in creation of the FEDERAL RESERVE, this Nation has been under attack. Not by another Country, but by the Money-changers themselves. They were already well on their way in taking over Europe, but the wealth and resources here on this Continent are just tooooo vast to ignore and now they’ve had 100 years to cement their claws into North America … look out US, here comes the North American Union. No more US, and no more Constitution. Both political parties working together to affect this CHANGE.
    Finally, just so you get a better sense of their TACTICS. There’s this -

    I did see another report where a practice run has already been undertaken, prior to the above action item. Still having trouble finding the web report – when I do, I’ll be baack to post it.

    Doomsday: How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a world-killing event – by Terrence Aym – Helium.com
    Ya see – the idea is to flood us with sutations and issues, so we never know for sure where the real attack by the World Banking Cabal will come from. And, according to the full scale plan written by ALBERT PIKE, we are very near to its completion. WWI and WWII are already in the books and the World has been brought to ruin by the people who control the flow of money, on purpose… The Banks make the most profits when there is a WAR – it’s already been admitted to and proven. The only item left now, is POWER.

    Anthony, great overview of the situation.
    The plan is to herd the people into dense population areas, stack us one atop another around a railway system, and make most of the land wilderness, off limits to the common-folk.
    I live in the mountains, amid beautiful tall trees. It is so beautiful here. It would take a disaster to get people to leave this area, as it would other less populated areas. Here is CA, fire is our biggest threat, and I wouldn’t put it past the PTB to use it.
    There has been so much going on behind closed doors. There have been a few Congressmen who have tried to give warning, mostly at townhalls and places not well covered by media. But the people have have not listened and, I fear, it may now be too late.
    I know the globalist elites will not succeed with their diabolical plans, but they will cause a lot of anguish and destruction before they ultimately destroy themselves.”

    ^^ Thank you both & sooo very many others who have been hard at work to bring out the truth that I didn’t copy/paste here…It would just be too long in this forum to do such a thing. I at least am aware of who you guyz are…*wink*. :D

      More proof of the horribleness that is being committed against our other half in these stupid countries. How they treat their women should ring alarms bells in anyone with a conscious. It’s idiotic & the supression of their women is proof of their evil, imo.

      America faces 2 major threats…amongst all the other threats that are also out there…but 2 primary.

      1) Islamic belief in destroying all other religions & peoples who don’t follow their radical movement.

      2) The NWO people and all their compartmentalized organizations and money control.

      Knowledge is power & slowly perhaps America is indeed waking up to these 2 simple truths.

      • Karolyn

        Brother Patriot, Take a good hard look at how women are treated in the US. It may not be as bad as in some other countries; but it is getting worse with the poor economy. Domestic violence is growing. If this world weren’t so male dominated, we wouldn’t have all the problems we have. Males are the controlling, aggressive and stronger of the two sexes. Hence, the whole mess.

        • DaveH

          Give me a break. My experience has been the opposite. Ask any guy who has had his children ripped away from him and then suffered watching the children be used as pawns in the women’s revenge schemes.
          The only thing that keeps women from physical violence (normally) is their lesser physical power. I have had women get physically violent with me many times. I have never used my physical power against a woman except in self-defense.
          And women regularly use Government as their bully boys to thrash the target of their disaffection. I believe in true equality, which could only occur if people were blind to the sexes. And Government would only be allowed to be involved in instances of force. Too often, the Government is the forcer.

          • Claire

            DaveH and Karolyn– I have edited several books on parental alienation—on international parental alienation as well as parental alienation cases here in the US. These are textbooks that are used in university and college classes written by esteemed authors ((male & female) and these people are NOT nutjobs. It is my findings that the women are equally as guilty as the men. One is no better than the other and no worse than the other. Some of these writings give actual case scenarios and let me tell you, some of these parents are evil as heck, they have no business even having any children. In some of the cases, the children were actually taken away from both parents and put in foster homes. I am not trying to be a know-it-all, but regarding this scenario, the children suffer, not the parents. The parents are only thinking of themselves and how much they can hurt the estranged spouse. They aren’t thinking about their children at all.

          • DaveH

            I know, Claire. I experienced it firsthand as well as stories from several of my acquaintances. My daughter was used as a weapon for 10 years until the ex could no longer handle her. Then she turned her over to me at age 16 and wanted me to take full responsibility for her which I did.

          • Claire

            DaveH– I am glad you got her back. I think I know you pretty well, you come across as being a caring and honest person. Your daughter is better off living with you. She no doubt is safer with you. I do not blame everything on the male spouse, some females have gotten pretty dang mean.

        • Kate8

          Karolyn, I don’t know what your expectations are from life, but I can’t think of a single time in my life that has come anywhere even close to those poor women in the middle east.

          I’ve found that I’ve been treated pretty much as well as I’ve treated others. I’ve felt no prejudice nor disrespect, and never expected any.

          I have noticed that there are people who have a victim consciousness. They are ready to find offense everywhere, even when none is intended. So what, anyway. Life goes on. Treat others with respect, and that is what you get back.

          These poor women are treated like refuse from birth. They never have a chance to know what it is to be treated like they have worth.

          • Claire

            Kate8–Very true words. I cannot imagine anyone putting up with that type of life.

        • Claire

          Karolyn–Hey, women can get pretty dang mean. Here in town, a woman stabbed her married boyfriend right in the heart with a kitchen knife. She is/was an RN–she knew exactly where to stab. And she was acquitted–self defense. She (her parents) has money and she hired the best lawyer she could get and that helps. Another thing, she gets arrested periodically for retail theft. Go figure. All that money and still steals.
          I am not siding with anyone, I am merely posting a fact.

        • Lubo

          Karolyn says: “Brother Patriot, Take a good hard look at how women are treated in the US. It may not be as bad as in some other countries; but it is getting worse with the poor economy. Domestic violence is growing. If this world weren’t so male dominated, we wouldn’t have all the problems we have. Males are the controlling, aggressive and stronger of the two sexes. Hence, the whole mess.”

          I would suggest that Karolyn will learn first hand why males are physically stronger than females, in the very near future. I would almost bet she will be looking for a “Brother Patriot” to defend her from our murderous enemies that consider her to be nothing more than a DOG.

          Karolyn, You state all the agressive behavior of males is the problem but in my experience I see the female population in this country becomming VERY AGGRESSIVE towards others, especially men. Out of control is an understatement. The difference being, you cannot finish what you start. Women with your mentality are dangerous people and typically end up getting themselves killed, as well as others. Bottom line, you live within your little male protected fantasy world and you never have a clue as to why or who’s blood gave you the FREEDOM to make your dumb feminist degrading comments about men. Fact is, REAL MEN don’t abuse WOMEN, they honor them, love them, and yes, PROTECT THEM from other males and/or FEMALES with BAD intentions.

          As far as you “Thinking” that females are in some way superior to males, that you are actually in better control of your thought process, think again. Basic chemistry says otherwise. Sounds like you have been watching too many hollywood movies or something equilvalent.

          I recently had a 20 something year old female who displayed some VERY aggressive behavior towards me, unprovoked. I was patient at first and then I grew VERY impatient especially when she stated what “She” could do to me, as if she had some type hidden army with her. My response, “Well, maybe, but this entire episode will only last SECONDS and it will not work out to well for you, HUNNIE.”

          At 90lbs(MOSTLY MOUTH and a FOUL ONE at that), I could have picked her up and slammed her down on the concrete sidewalk with enough force to break her neck. It would have been childs play. Lucky for this little feminazy crepe, MY SPIRIT said no, walk away, don’t do it! She has NO IDEA as to the DANGER she placed herself in…NO CLUE! Again, must be the hollywood factor or the DRUGS? You tell me since you are so much smarter, than WE MEN.

Its about time to see some change. I have heard talk of Minn. state malitia going to arrest the intire Sennet and the house. Now what would the goverment think if it realy happened. That would just be a good start to the end of all the BS thats happening with our goverment. I have heard that anyone that speaks out against the way things are going if someone reaports you you came be arrested to be put in prison. Whats wrong with this picture people???? In the constition of this great country it says the goverment will be ran by the people and for the people. NOT FOR THE SELF SERVING FEW THAT ARE ELECTED.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    It’s a real pity many voters did not anticipate this disaster back in 2006 and 2008. I understand their frustrations with RINOs and GOP wimps who too often cower to the liberal democraps. But were people really naive enough to think the democraps would be better or more conservative?? Don’t they realize by voting for Democraps (or refusing to cast a vote against democraps, they were turning a problem into a disaster???? WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

    We must also look beyond the 2010 election. DON’T GET TOO COMFORTABLE!! Hopefully we’ll win back the House and/or Senate this year. And if we do, the GOP must work diligently, and not get too comfortable with its success. Don’t take it for granted. The GOP must stop the agenda of BHO and his democraps. Stop cowering to the leftwing democraps!! If Republicans start wondering off the conservative field again, voters may not give the GOP a chance again!! We must also look at 2012, as we need to win back The White House to start reversing the damage to America since January 2009. I have to admit I made the same error. I began writing, commenting and avidly listening to talk radio (Rush Limbaugh, et al) during the Bill Clinton years. Of course, I got too comfortable, and drifted away from this in 2001 when GW Bush became POTUS and the Democraps were out of power. I suppose I took the GOP success for granted, until of course the 2008 campaign began 2 years ago, when I could foresee this current disaster coming. REMEMBER – the Democraps have been, and will be, sore losers when they’re out of power. They will lie about us to try to win back control. So we must fight them, and refute all their lies, and try to keep the leftwing statist democraps out of power permanently!!!!!

  • chuck b

    will someone explain to me why we are supposed to except the muslim religion and give it respect. there is no muslim country in the world i know of that respects or recognizes christianity and the ones that do allow the christian religion, they are under sharia law and taxed very heavily and are not allowed to operate outside their church. the muslims want only one thing, they want to convert the world to islam and will do it by any means possible, they are not a peaceful religion and welcome death for the non-believer.
    i believe barry soetoro is a muslim and he leaves no doubt in my mind, his actions speak louder than words.
    islam is a religion built on ignorance and intolerance and we should remove it from our society. i don’t think the forefathers were cognizant of the dander of islam when they referred to freedom of religion. when i hear the media or anyone calling most muslims moderate it causes me to question their gullibility. if they are a muslim they are subject to the qur’an and it calls for the death of all non-believers.

          However, we don’t need to be stupid, either. We have a right to act in our own defense, and anticipate the intent of Islam based on its history and declared intent.

          • eddie47d

            Kate8; We invaded their lands a very long time ago; a very long time before 9/11. This problem we are having now has been brewing for at least 80 years. We supported their dictators for decades and even helped overthrow governments. These same dictators who imprisoned and tortured their own people. Many,many thousands were killed by their governments with our weaponry. (even before the Gulf War). We pitted one Islamic government against another and helped create this hell hole. Wouldn’t you be angry at a country that did this you? As awful as 9/11 was it is nothing compared to the the over 1 millions deaths over their. Go read your history and our involvement in that region. Some of it isn’t pretty at all. We usually start off with good intentions but things deteriorate rather fast. Why did we sacrifice Americas moral values at the altar of political correctness.(nationalism).

    Make sure we all vote this Fall 2010 and if the candidates that you are considering do not announce publicly that that they believe in restoring our Constitution, and spending within the confines of tax revenues the government collects from us, then and only then will you vote for them. We have to draw a line, and if these replacements, don;t work out then we will replace them in the next election. We have to hold the politician’s “feet to the fire”, and at this time they will realize that they are our servants—and not the other way around. We need to pass a new amendment to the Constitution which states that even elected officials must respect the laws they pass, and not expect to have their own separate plans for retirement etc., and allow us to pay into Social Security, while they receive a full pension plan and medical/dental insurance free for life.

    Greyhawk…your message is very long & has much wisdom in it. It is also so very, very, VERY true. However, many people (some who call themselves patriots) will not read it. Which is sad but true also. However, this I say to you all…what is said is much needed. We HAVE to stand up & begin to unravel the damage that has been & is being done to America. It’s real. It’s a threat and we cant’ ignore it anymore. We can’t ignore either of the major threats that I have mentioned…the NWO degenerates or the Islamic movement.

    If I had a Koran…I would burn it. If not for the reasons that you state but from what I have also learned to be true. I have come to believe they may not only be misguided but perhaps just flat out Evil and willingly compliant to their doctrine and agenda. Anyone with a real conscious couldn’t bed a 7 year old or do the horrible things they do.

      I have thought about using the koran as target practice ( video taped ) and burning after a few dozen holes also video taped.

        Years ago it was intellectual, chic, to read the Koran. Information. Well, we did and rolled laughing at it. How could anyone fall for that stuff? No wonder those guys still run around in sheets, need to hide.

        It would be so good again to have the confidence in our government that enabled us to laugh so much at Koran stupidity and feel good that we were free Americans, free to think, free to speak, free to live our own lives. (this was pre-murderous abortion legalized).

        Constitution gave us the freedom that penetrated our bones and brains at birth. We are indeed unique human beings. Freedom changes people. So very different from those born and raised, and live in other countries. Now, however, we have gone a long time trusting. We have been invaded in our society, government and of course borders.

        Want to burn the Koran? Where were we all when our anti-Christ government controllers had the Gideon Bible removed from hotel rooms? And when our anti-Christ government controllers removed Christian Bibles from our troops in Mid-East? We must clean up our backyard first.

        Besides, the arab countries burn our stuff because they don’t have any stuff to burn, and if they did burn what stuff they do have, they would have to eat the matches.

        Put the Gideons back in, then you can burn the Koran. Choose.

      • denniso

        The Christian bible has all sorts of violence against non believers as well as incest and human sacrifice…you want to burn the Koran?

          Your words:

          “The Christian bible has all sorts of violence against non believers as well as incest and human sacrifice…you want to burn the Koran? How about burning the bible at the same time for the violence,adultery and incest in it? I’m surprised that no one has decided to do that w/ all this burning of books talk.”

          Let’s see you back up the aforementioned statements with your BEST scripture out of the Holy Bible, specifically the New Testiment. You do understand we are living in New Testiment times, don’t you?

          Are you a Muslim? Just curious?

          • denniso

            Why would you care if I’m Muslim or not? It doesn’t matter to me what you may be,since we’re supposedly debating the issues and not our own religion.
            The old testament is full of violence and adultery and incest, and I think that Christians still include it in their bible. You should know that…

          • a progressive nightmare

            denniso…obviously you do not understand the parting of the curtain. I would suggest before you spew your hatred for GOD and HIS WORD that you take a litte more time to read and understand it. it will set your FREE and remove your hatred.

          • Denniso

            You must not have read the old testament. The only thing I ‘hate’ is
            people of any religion using their ‘God’ to justify hating those who believe differently…I don’t differentiate between Muslim, Christian,Pagan…if they use their religion to bludgeon others and further hate in the name of their ‘God’.

            I don’t usually waste time ‘hating’ myths…it’s what people do w/ those myths that is of concern.

    I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I think what the Pastor is doing is disrespectful and I would discourage it. On the other hand, I think what radical Islamics do to people is more than disrespectful. We don’t kill muslims because one of their members burns our flag. We don’t kill muslims because some of their countries don’t even allow their citizens to possess Christian Religious Books. We don’t kill muslims because one of theirs randomly blows up a group of people. For them to threaten to kill Americans because one American chooses to burn a book should wake everybody up to the real danger of letting these people get too numerous in our country. We can’t let these creeps take away our Freedom like they have taken away the Freedom of people in so many other countries:

    i understand what you are saying, however, i myself have a hard time discerning any muslim from the types that flew the planes into the wtc. they are all jihadist in their hearts. if they believe the qur’an then they are a terrorist st heart in my eyes.

    i also lost respect for gen petraeus when he spoke out against burning the qur’an. was there any objection to the burning of the bible? no! that’s ok, but don’t burn the qur’an. i don’t think we have generals in the stature of mccarthur and patton anymore, too much political correctness. this patty cake war we are doing in afghanistan is a crime, we are losing our young men for naught.
    the war is being fought the same way the government is running, both are out of control.

      Look into the eyes of the children and also adults of muslim countries thyat have been kept down for centuries and tell me if you see “jihad” in their hearts. Look into their eyes when the Taliban destroys a girls’ school. I don’t think you will see anything but plain human suffering and fear.

      • JeffH

        Karolyn, look into the eyes of a smiling crippled 6yo boy just before his IED explodes and kills innocent men, women and children.

        For decades Iraq had developed several military training programs to prepare youths for war and militarize Iraqi society and culture. Both boys and girls participate in these military programs, some as young as 10. Some of the best known of these programs include: “Raad” and “Al Anfal,” which have trained over 23,000 children, and “Saddam Cubs,” military training camps for 8,000 Iraqi children.
        Armed opposition groups within Iraq are also known to use child soldiers. The fact that Iraq has thousands of military trained children should not be taken lightly or ignored completely.

        By Israel News Agency Staff
        Jerusalem—-March 18……An attempt by Palestinian terrorists to smuggle a bomb through an Israeli security checkpoint with the help of a 11-year-old boy drew widespread attention on both sides of the conflict Tuesday.
        11-year-old Abdullah Quraan was smiling with his friends hours after being used as a “human bomb” by Palestinian terrorists. The question of whether Quraan’s handlers really intended to blow him up without his knowledge makes absolutely no difference,” Israeli commentator Amit Cohen wrote in the daily Ma’ariv. “The man who packed the bomb in a schoolbag must have taken into account the possibility that the child carrying the bomb was liable to get hurt.”

        Back in school Tuesday, Quraan said he had done nothing wrong. “These people [the Israeli army] are liars, I don’t believe them, and if it was a bomb, they would not have let me go so easily,” he said at his school. Alert soldiers confiscated the bags at the checkpoint and cleared the area, Quraan said. A bomb squad came in and blew up the bags. The boy said he was interrogated for several hours and released.

            Karolyn? Kind of like liberals. They are destroying America, but hey. It’s not their fault. They’re brainwashed.

            These militant Muslims use children because they know a westerner will hesitate before harming a child. Many have died because of this. It’s sad, but this is their culture, and no amount of outrage on our part will change it. They sacrifice their children. Kind of shows what kind of people they are.

            BTW, liberals sacrifice their children, too. Before birth and, sometimes, even at birth. I don’t see much difference.

        • JeffH

          …Over 950 Israelis have been murdered in terror attacks over the past three years. During this period PA Chairman Yassar Arafat has called upon Palestinian children to march into Jerusalem as suicide bombers. It has been common practice by Arafat’s Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah to use children as human shields during terror attacks. In many cases, Palestinian terrorists have used ambulances to transport explosives through IDF checkpoints

          • eddie47d

            You are partially correct on the number of deaths (yours is a total number ever,not in the last 3 years). Also Arafat died in 2004 so he hasn’t been around for 6 years.

    I just participated in an MSNBC poll that asked us to grade Obama’s performance up to the mid-terms. MSNBC is a heavily left leaning news source.

    Q: Heading into the midterm elections, what grade would you give President Obama for his job performance?

    57.6% gave Obama an F. He has not gotten close to achieving the “hope and change” agenda that he ran on. His presidency so far is a failure.
    49,748 votes

    15.3% – A. He has passed many of his top agenda items and worked tirelessly to get the economy back on track. Republican obstructionism is the only reason he hasn’t been able to do more.
    13,205 votes

    From Dreams of My Father: “I ceased to advertise my mother’s white race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites i am a black and Muslim to the core of my inner soul.”
    From Dreams of My Father : “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s white race.”
    From Dreams of My Father: “There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white.”
    From Dreams of My Father: “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black Muslim masses, to strike out and name names.”
    From Dreams of My Father: “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own ghetto language. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa , the peaceful Muslim faith that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubious,Mohammad and Mandela.”
    And FINALLY ………
    and most scary:
    From Audacity of Hope:
    “I will stand with my Muslim brother’s should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    i think this pretty much tells all about barry!!

      chuck b, My mother believed in “common sense” testing. She said if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, waddles like a duck and acts like a duck; it’s a duck. She believed that actions speak louder than words and that only a liar said one thing and then did the opposite.
      Would President Obama pass my mother’s “is he a Muslim” test? Let’s see. President Obama says there is nothing more beautiful than the Muslim call to prayer in the evening. He says that the United States was not founded as a Christian nation.
      Obama’s father and step-father were Muslims and he spent his childhood living in a Muslim country where his school enrollment records say his religion is Islam. As President of the United States he genuflects to the Muslim King of Saudi Arabia but not the Christian Queen of England. He thumbs his nose at America’s friends and bows to its enemies. In short, Obama quacks like a Muslim, waddles like a Muslim and acts like a Muslim, so is he a Muslim? My mother would say, “Yes! He’s a Muslim through and through.”
      Growing up as a Muslim, Obama must have learned that according to the Quran it is acceptable to lie, deceive and live by a double standard provided in so doing one advances Islamic goals. Muslims only pretend to trust and be friends with non-Muslims; in the deepest of their Muslim hearts they have been taught that all non-Muslims are infidels.

    This is what we’re up against, folks. From Rasmussen:
    “There continues to be a huge divide among Mainstream voters and the Political Class. While 67% of Mainstream voters favor repeal of the health care bill, an overwhelming 88% of the Political Class opposes repeal, including 75% who Strongly Oppose repeal”.
    They can’t all be Democrats.

    A Grand Slam. Right out of the park. I’m not cranky—I’M MAD AS HELL AND I’M NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE.

    Our elected officials keep giving themselves raises while they tell us to prepare for tough times ahead. I want a representative who gives as good as he takes. If I must have Obama Care—so should they. If I must have Social Security—so should they. If they believe they deserve a 15% increase—I want to know why and then I want to vote on it.

    Maybe each state should have a public review board that will go over the elected officials record and then take it to the people.

    I said it in the 60′s it sounds even better today, “Power To The People.” Can I get an Amen?

      Every once in a while, Chuck, a webpage does this. It’s pretty rare, maybe about 2% of the webpages. It’s obviously a flaw in the software, but hey, this is so great of Bob Livingston to maintain this site that I wouldn’t think of complaining.

        of course i wasn’t complaing, i was mystified why it seemed to only be happening to me and no, i wasn’t checking on this happening to other people thats why i asked a couple of other people and you were the only one to answer, so thank you.
        i sent email twice to the contact us and never received an answer. i greatly appreciate that bob livingston furnishes this site to expel our complaints and anger at politicians.

    I have spent a great deal of time reading the “soap box” above, and I must say that there are a lot of people who are fed up with “Politics as Usual” There are several patriots here, (the Master Sergeant from the USAF, for one) I too wish to thank him for his service. I am also a veteran, served 11 years in the army and would have made 9 more, but my father died and my mother needed to be taken care of. (I am an only child)
    I see a lot of support for our Founding Fathers and for the U S Constitution, and that is what has influenced this letter. An old saying goes like this: “If you keep on doing what you have been doing, you will continue to get what you have been getting” Or to put this in the proper context for this forum, “If you keep on voting for the same 2-part system candidates, you will continue to get what they have been dishing out for years.
    I would like to ask, No, I would like to BEG all who read these words to please consider an alternative to the Democrats and the Republicans: The Constitution Party. The Constitution Party stands behind the US Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. The Platform includes:

    Sanctity of Life
    Strong National Defense
    Close our Borders
    The Right to keep and bear Arms
    Less Government interference in our lives
    Get out of the UN, and get the UN out of our country
    Get rid of the IRS
    Abolish the Federal Reserve
    Bring back jobs to America
    NO AMNESTY for illegal aliens
    Limit Government spending

    And these are just a few of the platforms the Constitution Party stands for!

    The Constitution Party has candidates running at all levels, National, State, and Local government positions.

    For additional information, you can access the National Constitution Party website at constitutionparty.com, or if you live in Missouri, go to constitutionpartymo.org.

    There truly is a viable alternative to our current (and broken) 2 party system

    May God always continue to Bless America.

      That is a list of what we expected our politicans to protect, a list that we functioned successfully in line with until some greedy jerks snaked into our government.

      You missed one extremely important item. Get rid of the Department of Education. States and thus parents, must take control again. Too easy to excuse ourselves with the ol not my fault cry when commies and perverts take over schools and children. YES it IS our fault. If we cannot protect our children, we are the useful idiots as identified by control freak commies.

      I’m considering voting against all female candidates.

      What they have done to our government and society is worse than what the males did.

      The females holding office require male office holders to become feminized, and that has happened from the homosexuals to the compliant males. Most are afraid to argue with the females. The homosexuals run to the females for protection and they get it.

      Indeed I surprised myself with this observation, totally new for me. I do not find real women holding political office or Supreme Court office, and believe we have been bamboozled by masculine females.

      If we return to all males in political office, the weak and homosexual males will not have protectors and will find other work. It is the female in political office that has promoted the feminizing of males in political office. They have promoted the weak male attitude and their preference for weak males to such an extent it has damaged our society. Our TV and other commercials, our tv programs, and men in society have been negatively affected by these females. Very tricky trail, but if you examine it carefully, you’ll see what females have done to our government and society since they filtered into power.

      Totally Disgusted with those masculine females pushing men out of government… and every other aspect of our society.

      Father Knows Best replaced by D’oh; a bank commercial uses children in a manner tending pedophilia with emotional abuse and trickery on the children by a male offering and withdrawing treats and setting children against each other to get the “ice cream and toys”; an insurance commercial shows an adult male timidly asking what would happen if his mommie wouldn’t let him drive. What the Hail, men. Start somewhere. Stop those 2 commercials with complaints to the head (probably female or homosexual).

    The average CEO makes $16.8 million dollars a year. If you made the corporations give reasonable salaries to CEOs and executives instead of these obscene amounts, there wouldn’t be any need for all these government hand-outs. If the corporations insist on outsourcing, the rule should be, “why pay a CEO $16.8 million a year when you can get a better one from India for $50,000 a year.”

    • Ozel01

      That is the essence of free market capitalism. Companies should be allowed to pay what they can afford to get and retain the best and brightest. Yet, through the spirit of covetousness, we see people question these “obscene” salaries. Why question what someone gets paid unless you desire to have a part of it? The flip side is, when you give anyone the authority to “regulate” one persons wages, you give them the authority to regulate everyones wages. Here is an example of a conversation I had with a fellow truck driver a couple of months ago. We were sitting at the terminal. Our company was then and is now in the process of upgrading their tractor fleet. Of course, when you buy 500 – 700 new tractors, that is a good size chunk of change. My compadre was complaining about the company upgrading their fleet and said “If the company cared about it’s drivers, it would pay them more and have us driving 2004 model tractors”. Okay, let’s disect that a moment. Certainly they could raise our pay, but we make our paycheck on miles, not the rate of pay. To illustrate, I could be paid $1 a mile and get 500 miles a week. Or, I could make .30 cents per mile and get 3000 miles per week. In the first example, I would obviously only get $500 a week. In the second, I would get $900 a week. So, which way am I better off? Obviously in the second example. Likewise, in which tractor am I likely going to get more miles per week, a 2004 model that breaks down on me every week or two or a brand new truck with few breakdowns? When I first hired on here, I was driving a 2005 model. I drove it from December of last year until May of this year. From the time I got it until I retired it for my new tractor, I had to replace a high pressure water line, the water pump, the alternator, the starter, something on the turbo, a charger air cooler boot, a set of brake shoes, a few tires, a temp sensor and who knows what else that was done in the terminal that I wasn’t even aware of. All that translates to down time when you aren’t making miles. For the water pump alone, I was down for 36 hours. Since I got my new truck, I was down long enough to have a new wire end put on the wire running to the APU alternator and that has been it. That means I am out here making good miles without interruption. So, again, if I am driving an old truck that breaks down all the time, I probably won’t be making good miles consistently so my pay will suffer for it. Going back to my compadre’s statement, it is obvious he covets what he does not have. If he desires more money, he can go to school and be a high salary CEO if he likes. As for me, I am very content doing what I am doing at the pay I am getting. It is a company’s job to make money. If it isn’t making money, it in’t going to be in business creating jobs for very long.

    Folks, I see a lot of talk here. But action is where the rubber meets the road. I live in a reliably conservative district. I will vote conservative this fall and likely have my conservative representative in congress next term. Since my district is conservative, I realize I need to channel my funds to places and campaignss that need it. I fund campaigns that are close in the polling. I directly fund Carly Fiorina in CA and Sharon Angle in NV. I also fund the Senate Conservatives Fund. As I see other races tighten and hit the too close to call category, I will start channeling money to those campaigns as well. It doesn’t take much. If every conservative in reliably conservative districts set up a recurring donation of $1 a month to these campaigns it could translate to millions of dollars for a campaign. Pass up one or two trips to Mickey D’s a month and you could fund 10 – 15 different campaigns for the next couple of months and possibly contribute enough for the conservative message to get out over the liberal/progressive noise we continue to hear. Although late for this election year, conservatives need a unified and consistent message. The primaries are the battleground for ideas. Once the primaries are over, voters must unite behind the victors. Too often, as was the case in Florida, the loser (or in the FL case the person who perceives he is goign to lose and switches his allegiance) goes on to run as a candidate for another party and ultimately splits the independent vote. That is usually a recipe for liberal/progressive victory, just as the Florida Tea Party and the Nevada Tea Party formed to push less than desirable candidates. These instances were nothing more than liberal/progressivee fronts to attempt to demoralize and discredit the Tea Party movement. Yet, they also serve to split the vote and allow their person to remain in office. Certainly be wary of anyone who has no credentials, like the one occupying the oval office right now. I know I tried to warn people but the “hope and change” mantra was too irresistable for a lot of people. This is certainly a classic case of be careful what you ask for because you might get it. The moral is, put your dollars behind a conservative candidate with a shot at winning and ride it out. Hopefully that will build into a tsunami of victories come Noveember.

    Would all the folks who does not want the government into their business get up and leave the muslims to handle their business and not try to interfer with them.

    did anything they wanted. The dems have to take some blame is this also. We need to get those regs back in place to save our future. As long as the pubs are going to say NO WE WON’T, our troubles are just beginning. If you have money your in, if not your like me, they don’t even know I’am here.

    When Iran gets nuclear warheadsthat will be the beginning of World War III so we will see them with long range missles with warhead within three years and enough to do what they have been theatening to do for the last 5 Years destroy the State Of Israel and the great Satan The U.S.A. this is also one of the reason Isolationism will not work we had a giant Tank Ditch on both sides of our nation with the technologies today that deffence will not stand. They can marry a warhead to say 20 Scude missles and launch them from container ships within twenty minute and twenty or thirty miles off our coast and we can not intercept them the death toll in places like New York an Los Angelis would be in the millions immediately and more would die during the coming weeks so Isolation will not work and cooperation with a politically Socialist Europe will not work this leaves us with only one option hit them before they can hit us, kill every terrorist in his or her camps and do it so often that the world gets the messasge don’t mess with the U.S.A. But We won’t do it so in the End Ezekiel 38-39 is going to happen we will not be protected here in Amrica only Israel will be protected but the loss of life world wide will bring the lier promising peace but he will in the end bring disaster. America will cease to be a power with ten or twenty cities nuked 100 to 150 million dead will devestate this nation. And to top that off the rapture of the church about twenty million more will dissapear in 1/160Th. of a second. So There you have it with Russias help Iran will have the Bomb, and possibly Syria, and Turkey all members of an alliance with the goal of destroying Israel and America’s power.

I like the ” TEA PARTY ” if they can win much more is up in the air but remember, there has to be a change, if not, we are headed for distruction ! I am a veteran and to those who have gone before, I say thank you…War is HELL, but if that is what it takes, so be it. Coming, There will be a crash of our social way of life, it has been crafted by the ” PROGRESSIVE movement”…. We must stop this movement in its tracks ! There has been none before and will be none after !
