Today's News

Tea Parties have been named 'riots' by the current Administration, and President Obama has declared Martial Law for the protection and safety of all our citizens....

The US Military has been disbanded, and private citizen groups (communicating with their Leader via text message) have been given all of the weapons confiscated during last week's anti-gun movement. Citizens are being warned to stay inside their homes, and abide by the 7PM curfew.

Citizens wishing to join the New American Protection Force can call (or text)
1-800-u-r-scrwd, to pledge their allegiance to Our Leader... Conscription of citizen volunteers will begin next week, in the event that enough pledges are not received this week.

Happy April Fool's day!

I think that a lot of the acrimony between Conservatives and Liberals is due to miscommunication. There are truly very few people out there who believe the farthest extremes of either viewpoint. Barak Obama was the only one to argue in favor of leaving aborted babies who managed to live through the abortion process to die. Everyone else, even the most liberal, agreed that it was horrifying. (President Obama thought it was too much of a burden on the doctor, and that if a woman went in to abort a baby, then that service had to be provided) I don't hear a lot of loony Right-wing views, but I know they're out there too. Most of us are somewhere in the middle, albiet farther to the right (social order) or to the left (individual freedom).. I read somewhere that you have the right to swing your fist, but that right ends at my nose. Makes sense to me.. Obviously, I fall to the right, but I believe that 90% of those who fall to the left agree with that statement too. Some believe more in peace than war, and our overseas conflicts are a big divider here in our own land as well... But after 9-11, it seemed that we were pretty united behind a desire to go and kick some terrorist rear. There weren't any namby pamby words like 'man-made-disaster', it was TERRORISM, and we weren't going to stand for it! Right, left, middle, whatever- no one wanted another 9-11, and if war was what it took, then war is what we had. As time went on, and people became disillusioned, and Iraq got messy, it changed- but in the beginning, almost everyone (except wackos like Ward Chamberlain) agreed that we had to fight back.
The point of all this is - we're all going to be the victims here, if Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barak Obama succeed in re-making America into their vision of Utopia. There are Tea Parties all over the place, people are starting to get really upset (especially in those little burgs where people 'cling to their guns and their religion'). We all know that no matter what President Obama does, there is no way he will be impeached.. could we end up with civil war? violent protests? Martial Law (imposed for the sake of the safety of the citizens, continued to keep order, and protect the ever-growing government) is next...
We are really heading down a scary path. Our economy is heading for some scary places. Once Inflation hits, I wonder if they'll continue to try and spend their way out. Maybe if they print another trillion dollars, the dollar will be worth more. Or not.
The point of all this gloom and doom is to remind everyone- we are ALL Americans before we are liberal or conservative. We have to remember to try and find ways to preserve America, and not ignore what's happening to our country as the constitution is stepped on by the government in power at every opportunity.
Good luck to us all...

I <3 Strategy Room

I just have to say- watching this show keeps me informed to the nth degree. I read a lot, and find lots of sources of information, but watching the people on the Strategy Room discuss the issues, I learn more than the facts... The guests have lived actual history, and in some cases, are still living it. They are more than pundits sitting around and regurgitating the same old tired opinions they heard from someone else. These are people who have been there, done that, and could do it again tomorrow if they had to. OK, there are SOME guests who just sit there and regurgitate the same tired old talking points, but they're all liberals. Ever notice how a lot of liberals base their opinions on something someone told them, and the conservatives are basing their statements on their personal experiences? Even a liberal has a hard time staying a liberal when they're faced with reality all around them, instead of their insulated little world of rose-colored glasses and utopian promises of hope and change. One of the most inspiring things I saw during CPAC was the husband-wife team of 'recovering liberals' who got a dose of reality when they went to report on a mining town. Their movie, "Not Evil Just Wrong" is one I am actually planning to see. (Not being a regular movie-goer, this is a rarity) I would love to see them on the Strategy Room.. hmm... Think I'll send an email and request it!

Who says actions speak louder than words?

President Obama, who is unfortunately NOT our nation's first Bi-Facial President, talks the talk. He is incredibly intelligent, and adept at convincing people that he is going to do the right thing. I think everyone can agree that he has a gift for connecting with an audience, and saying what people want to hear. The scary thing is that the American People seem to believe whatever he says, even when it directly contradicts what he said a moment before, or what he is doing. He gives addresses to the Nation in which he espouses a firm belief in fiscal responsibility, while supporting every big fat piece of pork that comes his way. His budget is a larded up mess, and the new Omnibus bill is a joke. (and not a very funny one, by the way)
Throughout the campaign, and even now that he has been elected, I have noticed something interesting. When a liberal pundit, or members of Obama's campaign, or his administration, are questioned about something Obama has done, they answer the questioning about his ACTIONS with an answer about his WORDS. Instead of refuting the accusation, which can't be done, they answer with "Well, Obama says..." Wow, have another drink of the Kool-aid, why don'tcha?

As long as the American People continue to fall for this snake-oil, we'll be heading further downhill. I think people are starting to wake up, though. Today, realclearpolitics showed that his approval ratings have broken below the 60's for the first time. Here's hoping for the future.

There's an earmark I can get behind!

I brought this up to the strategy room this am... 1.7 Million dollars for pig odor research in Iowa... The politicians are pretty savvy at redirecting funds, so if they tried really hard, I bet that money could be used to research the 'odor' of all the pig products (i/e PORK) that are in all of these spending bills.. What do you think?

Watching Mitt Romney give his speech today, I was struck with a thought. I'm sure others were thinking the same thing. In fact, I'm pretty sure HE was thinking the same thing........
If he had gotten the nomination, we might not be looking down the barrel of trillions of dollars in national debt, an economy shot all to heck, and a coward's posture in national defense. At the time, I preferred McCain. As a fellow veteran, I admired his strength and fortitude in his defense of our great country. Mitt Romney has always looked kind of like a bobble-head to me, and still did in his speech today, honestly. I disagreed with some of his stances, and just generally liked McCain better. If I had it all to do over again, I would be standing on the rooftops begging everyone to vote for Romney. Not that I have anything against John McCain- I still admire him and his service to our country, but... well... I don't think any of us have any idea where this country is headed now, but it looks like it's going to make a big splash in a large vat of Kool-Aid. (based on the latest polls that show the majority of Americans believing every word President Obama says, even while he is doing the complete OPPOSITE of what he says!)
Life-vest anyone?

OK, I know I said I would pick through the Senate/House compromise and pull out all the pork, but by the time I got to the section where they are starting the process of Nationalizing our Health Care System, I was so depressed I had to close it up.

So, let's start talking about the NEXT Stimulus package. You know, the one they're going to have to pass 'really fast' to prevent the next emergency situation. We know, they know, everyone knows that this steal-from-us bill is NOT going to fix anything. President Obama came out and admitted it right after signing it, by saying that there will need to be more in the near future. What? You mean this Hog-zilla of a bill wasn't enough?
When I think about it, though, I wonder if another stimulus bill might actually be a good idea...
No, really- I'm serious! The Democrats have already used up all the pet projects they've been aching to cram into a bill, so maybe the next package would be a legitimate stimulus bill that could be put together by both parties, with advice from economists...
And now back to reality! There will never be a bill that comes out of this government that is not larded up with pork. Sad, but true. Good luck to all of us. I wonder what will be left when this administration leaves office.
