A Free and Open Society Depends on Openness–Not Approval

It seems that some of the truth of about how the current administration operates is finally coming out into the open. You know, the most open and honest administration ever?! The New York Times admits that government officials are censoring news stories. The reports of the news happenings of the day really are “stories”, fiction at best. What a sad time in our history. Read the rest HERE:

More Madness

This truth will never find its’ way into the mainstream media groupies

Here’s portion of 15-year-old Ariel Waldron’s speech at a Tea Party Rally

As reported by Doug Giles on Townhall

 

Kids . . . teens. . . I’m here to tell you tonight that, yes, you do have a voice. Your life doesn’t start when you’re eighteen; it starts now. We see what’s happening in the world, in our world, so why can’t we say something about it? Heck, why can’t we do something about it? This is our world too, right?

We see all the corruption that’s happening today, corruption that will affect OUR FUTURE! And it’s already happening now. Our future is disappearing before it’s even beginning. Taxes are going up; our Constitutional rights are gradually being taken away; the healthcare bill has actually passed. This is America; this isn’t supposed to be happening, right? This is the land of the free, not the land of the government tells me what to do! Last time I checked, we were still a democracy.

So, what are we going to do about it? Are we going to sit here and do nothing, let someone else take care of it? Because I guarantee you if that’s the kind of attitude you have, that’s the kind of attitude others will have, and we’ll get absolutely NOTHING done.

People want change but are too afraid to take the risk to make it happen. Kids, are we too afraid of what people think of us because of our age that we’re going to let our rights and our country be sacrificed? Are we going to let what the world thinks of us stop us from making a difference? I hope that you’re thinking, “Heck NO!” 1 Timothy 4:12 says, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” You set the trend and have others follow you. Make the world take a step back and see that you can make a difference.

There are so many people here tonight, and each one of you came for some reason or another, but one common reason is this: You came to make a difference. So I’ll ask you this: Can you handle it? Will you come together, let your voice be known, speak up for what you believe in? Will you push back, will you follow what’s right, or just stand by and watch over 200 years of work by our founding fathers be diminished?

If you don’t like what’s happening in Washington, help put a stop to it. Don’t just sit there wishing things were different. Let your voice be heard. Even if you affect just one person’s life, if your voice is heard by one person then their voice will be heard by one person, and you’ve just paid it forward; you’ve made a difference. My favorite verse, Philippians 4:13, says this, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” You can do anything you set your mind to. You’ve just got to put it into action, and here’s how: You have a voice; use it. Thank you.

 

So I ask you, does this 15 year old have more guts than you? If you agree with what she’s saying, stop sitting on your butt and do something about it!

Who’re the real Terrorists?

I’ve been noticing a disturbing trend lately in the justice system . The media groupies in the local as well as national news have been reporting that everyone and their brother, as well as kids, are being charged with our crime fighters’ newest buzz words, “terroristic ‘whatever’”, crimes.

For example, a teenager here in our state took a gun to school (wrong of course), brandished it, (wrong again), and supposedly threatened to shoot people. He was charged with a “terroristic” threat of some kind.

In the meantime, a slime ball killed 13 of our soldiers in Fort hood. While he clearly has ties to terroristic agencies, the authorities are staying away from charging him with any terroristic activities. All in the name of political stupidity correctness, so we don’t offend our “enemies”! How stupid is that?

Let’s review":

We charge citizens with “terroristic” crimes, while we don’t charge terrorists with terroristic crimes.

Is this Where we want to go?

Democrats’ Bush-bashing strategy goes bust – A couple of Comments:

Forwarded from Flint:

Obama better smarten up. How long does he plan on blaming Bush, which he
is quite content to do every single day. He doesn’t seem to understand
what Americans do: His actions have made the situation much worse.
I think it’s time the Dems taught this one-t…rick pony a new trick. After
you have quadrupled the deficit, run unemployment over 10%, doubled the
troops in Afghanistan, increased the terrorist attacks on the U.S. and
broken every campaign promise you made, you gotta understand that after a
while even die-hard Democrats are going to notice that George Bush is
no longer around.
The Bush bashing is getting old and tedious. This administration needs
to live in the here and now. Although I was not a Bush supporter I have
to give him props for not engaging in the same type of useless tactics.
Even now, he remains a gentleman and keeps his opinions to himself. When
any administration keeps blaming the past for all the problems it’s
usually because their trying to take the focus away from their own
mistakes. All I can say to Pres. Obama is, MAN UP!

Here’s the story


More of the Same, Only More Expensive

The President has wrestled control of the health care debate away from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid by finally introducing his own plan. Unfortunately, the White House’s proposal includes everything we found untenable about the old Senate bill – only this one is even more expensive! This is what you might call putting “perfume on a pig.”
What’s in this “new” proposal? It has the unpopular (and arguably unconstitutional) individual mandate that forces people and employers to purchase health insurance – only this time with much harsher fines on employers who choose not to go along with another expensive government mandate. It has provisions that will make employers think twice before expanding their workforce. It has cuts to Medicare Advantage, a popular program which allows seniors to pay a little more money out of pocket for better coverage. And, of course, it still has sweetheart deals – only this time they’ve been extended even more.
We don’t know what the final long-term cost of this will be because the Congressional Budget Office hasn’t had a chance to calculate costs. We do know that the White House recognizes that its proposal will cost tens of billions more over the next ten years than the already-expensive $2.5 trillion Senate bill. The President promised last July that he won’t sign a health care bill if it “adds even one dime to our deficit over the next decade.” But he’s now proposing a health care bill with uncertain fiscal repercussions that could lead to endless deficits.
The rising cost of care has driven the entire health care reform debate. So how does the President’s proposal address this central issue? Price controls. That’s right: Washington, D.C. wants to give a panel of bureaucrats the power to cap insurance premiums and prices. As Michael Cannon of the Cato Institute notes, “artificially limiting premium growth allows the government to curtail spending while leaving the dirty work of withholding medical care to private insurers.” This leads to rationing. Any economist worth his salt – including the White House’s own Larry Summers – will tell you that price controls lead to all sorts of negative unintended consequences. It’s another step towards government controlled health care and away from the real solution: free market, patient-centered reform.
With a government-growing proposal this bad, it’s no wonder the President wants bipartisan cover for it in an election year. Thursday’s health care summit is already being revealed as little more than a photo-op. The Obama administration still denies the existence of the House Republicans’ health care plan that offers alternative solutions to health care challenges – even though the White House website links right to it.
The President’s proposal doesn’t include pro-free market ideas like allowing people to buy insurance across state lines, giving individual buyers the same tax benefits as those who get insurance through their employers, or instituting real medical liability reform. Despite the “kumbaya” rhetoric, Democrats are making plans to ram this bill through the Senate using a partisan procedural maneuver that will bypass the normal bipartisan debate process.
In the meantime, the White House will continue to ignore Republican reform ideas and cast the GOP as the party of no. That’s a hard sell considering that Democrats still hold the majority in the House and Senate. The only real “gridlock” preventing Democrats from doing what they want is the very real threat of America’s voice being heard at the ballot box.
The public is clearly opposed to the Democrats’ health care bills. Americans want to scrap these big-government plans and start over with common-sense, incremental reform. Some on the left have urged Democrats to vote for Obamacare because it’s a foot in the door for universal health care. They understand what’s at stake; so should the rest of us.
The President can perfume this proposal however he wants, but it still doesn’t pass the smell test. Washington should listen to Americans now, or Washington will hear us in November.

Are You Capable of Decency, Rahm Emanuel?

Yesterday at 7:32pm

The newly-released mind-boggling, record-smashing $3,400,000,000,000 federal budget invites plenty of opportunity to debate the merits of incurring more and more debt that will drown the next generation of Americans. Never has it been possible to spend your way out of debt. So… let the debate begin.
Included in the debate process will be opportunities for our president to deliberate internally the wisdom of this debt explosion, along with other economic, military and social issues facing our country. Our president will discuss these important issues with Democrat leaders and those within his inner circle. I would ask the president to show decency in this process by eliminating one member of that inner circle, Mr. Rahm Emanuel, and not allow Rahm’s continued indecent tactics to cloud efforts. Yes, Rahm is known for his caustic, crude references about those with whom he disagrees, but his recent tirade against participants in a strategy session was such a strong slap in many American faces that our president is doing himself a disservice by seeming to condone Rahm’s recent sick and offensive tactic.
The Obama Administration’s Chief of Staff scolded participants, calling them, “F—ing retarded,” according to several participants, as reported in the Wall Street Journal.
Just as we’d be appalled if any public figure of Rahm’s stature ever used the “N-word” or other such inappropriate language, Rahm’s slur on all God’s children with cognitive and developmental disabilities – and the people who love them – is unacceptable, and it’s heartbreaking.
A patriot in North Andover, Massachusetts, notified me of Rahm’s “retarded” slam. I join this gentleman, who is the father of a beautiful child born with Down Syndrome, in asking why the Special Olympics, National Down Syndrome Society and other groups condemning Rahm’s degrading scolding have been completely ignored by the White House. No comment from his boss, the president?
As my friend in North Andover says, “This isn’t about politics; it’s about decency. I am not speaking as a political figure but as a parent and as an everyday American wanting my child to grow up in a country free from mindless prejudice and discrimination, free from gratuitous insults of people who are ostensibly smart enough to know better… Have you no sense of decency, sir?”
Mr. President, you can do better, and our country deserves better.

Strange Pick

George Bush supposedly mismanaged this country and put it into the red. Had no leadership whatsoever and was a complete buffoon.

When it comes to something as important as raising funds for Haiti, though, Obama picks Bush and Clinton.

Strange pick and a strange pair.
