It’s over, or is it?

The election mess is over and everyone can relax and enjoy life. I don’t think so. Did you see how many millions-billions were spent by the candidates and their supporters? Do you think there will be pay back for the millions-billions spent? You can bet on that.

Now the resounding voice of the people says there must be a smaller Government. Can that be done or is it a Mission Impossible? This is what I think can be done for starters.

*Reduce Government payroll by 10% every year through attrition.

*A hiring freeze for all departments. Any workers eliminated but not eligible for retirement should be offered jobs opened by those retiring. Job transfers are common in the private sector.

*No new departments except for emergencies like national disasters.

*Cancel all “lifetime pay and insurance” for elected positions. They made their money from special interests and do not need a “welfare” check every month for the rest of their lives.

*Eliminate any division that can be replaced by private enterprise.

*All Government employees must pay no less than 30% into their retirement funds if they are not doing that now because their wages are generally high than private companies.

This is a start I can believe in. How about you?


If this doesn’t get you out to vote, nothing will!

National press “Nudge” on meds for elderly

Have you noticed the national press has articles about the high cost of cancer medicine and “wasting” it on the elderly? Is this a “nudge”? Should there be a cut off age for those who built and worked all their life for the betterment of their fellow man? Do they forget who paid into the system during their productive years. You know that they are trying to cut costs, one step at a time. Pity the elderly. Will the elderly be written out of the history books like so much litter in our society?

Do you see any articles on cutting off welfare for those that never wanted to work and never will work as long as Uncle Sam gives them money for their votes? Do you see any articles about union workers funding their own retirement? Do you see stories about the impact of illegals in our country?

Let us pray that “We the people” will Fundamentally Change America Nov. 2 by voting. Talk to your friends and neighbors and encourage them to vote.


Pelosi says you wont mind a 1% transaction tax, this means EVERY transaction…EVERY! Can you believe they want to destroy America and make us a socialist country……… I say yes they do!!!!!!!!
Listen when she says this should go global….. What next, prison camps for those that can’t pay???? Does this
include  the 40 % that are on welfare checks now?  If so, get out your riot gear!

Will this include UNION pensions??????   Bet not.

View her video below………

Click on the web site listed and hear

Nancy speak.

YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING….”absolutely not”……

President Obama’s finance team and Nancy Pelosi are recommending a 1% transaction tax

on all financial transactions.

His plan is to sneak it in after the November election to keep it under the radar.

See what Nancy tries to say about this wonderful idea!

It’s only 1%!

This is a 1% tax on all transactions to or from any financial institution i.e..

Banks, Credit Unions, Mutual funds, Brokers, etc.

Any deposit you make will have a 1% tax charged.

Any withdrawal you make, 1% tax.

Any transfer within your account, a transfer to or from savings and checking, will have a 1% tax charged.

Any ATM transaction, withdrawal or deposit, 1% tax.

If your pay check or your Social Security is direct deposited, 1% tax.

If you carry a check to your bank to deposit, 1% tax.

If you take cash in to deposit, 1% tax.

If you receive any income from a bond or a dividend from stock, 1% tax.

Any Real Estate Transaction, 1% tax. (This is on top of the 3.8% they just slid in on you) total nearly 5%, commission + tax 11%, some states “Excise Tax is an additional 1+% 12% OR MORE)

Pay for your insurance (health)… 1%

Consider 1% on the buyer of coming in, and 1% on the seller going out 2% of all transactions… unreal. Some areas in California are over 9%, add two more 11%, who are they kidding??? and for What??? for Juan, Pablo and the anchor babies?

When will the pain wake America up to this non-sense. This administration is about YOUR MONEY, and they will take it from you how ever they can.

This is from the man who promised that if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax! Remember, he is completely honest and trustworthy.

You would think they would do something about the out of control SPENDING, and Entitlements… too much, too out of control. They have to be Stopped!!!

Keep your eyes and ears open.

U.S. Army — Lying With The Truth

Subject: U.S. Army — Lying With The Truth
The Army Times article below shows how the Obama Administration is using the US Army to lie to the American people.
The official huckster line is that we have removed our last “Combat Brigade” from Iraq.
That is true only if you agree to the Name Game being used for propaganda purposes.
You see, there are seven or more brigades, that were combat brigades, which are still in Iraq.
The only difference is that they have been renamed “Advise and Assist” brigades, so they are not “Combat” brigades, even though they are fully capable of reverting to full combat operations at the drop of a hijab, or whatever.
Not to mention the additional two National Guard Infantry Brigades that are not Combat brigades because they are doing security duty.
And, don’t forget the two Combat Aviation Brigades that are still in Iraq … no mission change, but they apparently don’t count as Combat brigades.
Just remember that the Obama Administration says that our last Combat Brigade has withdrawn from Iraq.
Oh, and don’t forget to remember that there is no such thing as a Death Panel, and pray that you don’t get sick with and expensive-to-treat disease.
Sleep well, for the Obama Administration wouldn’t lie to you … would they?

7 Advise and Assist Brigades, made up of troops from BCTs, still in Iraq
By Kate Brannen – Staff writer
Posted : Saturday Aug 21, 2010 16:10:59 EDT
As the final convoy of the Army’s 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, based at Fort Lewis, Wash., entered Kuwait early Thursday, a different Stryker brigade remained in Iraq.

Soldiers from the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division are deployed in Iraq as members of an Advise and Assist Brigade, the Army’s designation for brigades selected to conduct security force assistance.

So while the “last full U.S. combat brigade” have left Iraq, just under 50,000 soldiers from specially trained heavy, infantry and Stryker brigades will stay, as well as two combat aviation brigades.

Compared with the 49,000 soldiers in Iraq, there are close to 67,000 in Afghanistan and another 9,700 in Kuwait, according to the latest Army chart on global commitments dated Aug. 17. Under an agreement with the Iraqi government, all U.S. troops must be out of Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.

There are seven Advise and Assist Brigades in Iraq, as well as two additional National Guard infantry brigades “for security,” said Army spokesman Lt. Col. Craig Ratcliff.

Last year, the Army decided that rather than devote permanent force structure to the growing security force assistance mission, it would modify and augment existing brigades.

The Army has three different standard brigade combat teams: infantry, Stryker and heavy. To build an Advise and Assist Brigade, the Army selects one of these three and puts it through special training before deploying.

The Army selected brigade combat teams as the unit upon which to build advisory brigades partly because they would be able to retain their inherent capability to conduct offensive and defensive operations, according to the Army’s security force assistance field manual, which came out in May 2009. This way, the brigade can shift the bulk of its operational focus from security force assistance to combat operations if necessary.

To prepare for their mission in Iraq, heavy, infantry and Stryker brigades receive specialized training that can include city management courses, civil affairs training and border patrol classes.

As far as equipment goes, the brigades either brought their gear with them or used equipment left behind that is typical to their type of brigade, said Ratcliff.

The first Advise and Assist Brigade — the 4th Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Armored Division from Fort Bliss, Texas — deployed last spring to Iraq, serving as a “proof of principle” for the advisory brigade concept.

Of the seven Advise and Assist Brigades still in Iraq, four are from the 3rd Infantry Division, based at Fort Stewart, Ga. The 1st Heavy Brigade of the 1st Armored Division, based at Fort Bliss, and the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 4th Infantry Division, based at Fort Carson, Colo., are also serving as Advise and Assist Brigades.

The 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team of the 25th Infantry Division is based at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. A combat medic from that unit was killed Aug. 15 when his Stryker combat vehicle was hit with grenades, according to press reports.

Two combat aviation brigades also remain in Iraq, according to Dan O’Boyle, Redstone Arsenal spokesman. Three more are deployed in Afghanistan, where there are currently no Advise and Assist Brigades.

ACORN- Court Case


Last Updated: 10:06 AM, August 14, 2010//

An appeals court yesterday upheld a decision by Congress to cancel funding for the controversial ACORN activist group last year in the wake of a secret-video scandal.

The federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan overturned a lower-court ruling that said the move violated the Constitution by punishing ACORN without a trial.

“Despite that evidence of punitive intent on the part of some members of Congress . . . there is no congressional finding of guilt in this case,” the three-judge panel ruled.

But the appeals court also sent the case back to Brooklyn federal Judge Nina Gershon to consider ACORN’s claims that its free-speech and due-process rights were violated.

Congress cut off funding for ACORN last year after conservative activists recorded workers offering advice on how to set up a proposed prostitution business.

A Rather Angry America

by Victor Davis Hanson

Pajamas Media

Unemployment is still high, growth low, deficits huge.  States are cutting out everything from streetlights to paving. Public pensions  are exploding everywhere.

A class war looms between retirees who want their  sweet-heart obligations honored, and strapped, poorer taxpayers who feel about  those bloated payouts as they do their underwater mortgages.

What Did You Expect?

In a progressive (liberal) culture, where ads blare hourly  about skipping out on credit card debt, shorting the IRS, and walking away  from mortgages, did the public employee unions really think they were exempt  from a Chrysler-like renegotiation?

In the age of Obama, there is no real contractual  obligation: everything from paying back bondholders to fixing a BP penalty is,  well, “negotiable.” When the money runs out, the law will too. Law? There is  no law other than a mandated equality of result.

The Talkative Crowd

On the Internet recently appeared the pictures of the  JournoList [1] bunch, who at least between themselves gave up their usual  pretense that the media was unbiased. With all due respect (confession: I was  briefly mentioned by the list as someone that the racist card might work on in  connection with the illegal immigration debate), they appear to the eye as a  sort of nerdish group.

They remind me of what we used to call the “wimp table” at a  pretty tough Selma High around 1970. It was there that the high school’s  handful of geeks, toadies, and picked-upon used to eat, under the protective  eye of yard-duty teachers. The assumption was that with a few steps further  onto the grounds, the entire sorry bunch was fair game for every bully on  campus. And that sad outfit filters, disseminates, and arbitrates our news?  Most from their writing and appearance seemed either neurotic overachievers or  twenty-something bloggers who confuse calling someone something with  erudition.

Up Is Down

No wonder aristocratic golf became needed presidential  relaxation, the old first lady hysteria over things like Nancy’s china cooled  when Michelle hit the Costa del Sol, and Guantanamo became A-Okay. The news  now for these guys is sort of like writing boilerplate race/class/gender  oppression papers for a Yale undergrad gut class.

Populism Is Now Bad?

In contrast, the proverbial people seem angry. A book will  have to be written explaining how in 19 months Obama blew a 70% approval  rating and is headed for under 40% — something that took Bush six years. A  handful of judges nullified what millions voted for in Arizona and California,  apparently on the premise that wanting federal immigration law enforced, and  seeing marriage as a traditional bond between a man and woman as it has been  for 2,500 years in the West, was bigoted, analogous to the racism of the Jim  Crow South, and thus in need of judicial intervention.

A guy in Bakersfield might think it prejudicial that a gay  judge struck down an amendment to the Constitution passed by a majority of  voters and opposed by the gay lobby; a guy in DC would think the guy in  Bakersfield prejudicial for coming up with that preposterous  conclusion.

Meanwhile, in our postracial age, race is everywhere:  Charles Rangel, who won’t follow the tax laws he writes, whines about an  “old-English, Anglo-Saxon procedure.” [2] Maxine Waters (under the cloud of  insider bank influence peddling) and the Black Caucus (recipient of  federalized GM donations) cite racism as the source of their ethical dilemmas  (at least Larry Craig did not cite gay-bashing and Duke Cunningham reverse  discrimination and Chris Dodd ageism and the late John Murtha  girthism).

A mass murderer at a beer distribution center (so much for  Van Jones’s assurances that such mayhem was a white thing) is portrayed on the  airwaves as an aggrieved victim of racism lashing out. Not a word about the  shattered lives of those gunned down and their families. Welcome to the  post-racial Obama age — with much more to follow. (Nemesis gives no quarter:  once Barack Obama years ago went down the patronize-and-use-Rev.-Wright path,  the payback was only a matter of when, not if.)

History Is Negotiable

We sent our first delegation to the services marking the  bombing of Hiroshima. Fine, but will we do the same with the Philippines,  Manchuria, South Korea, and all the other places where the Imperial Japanese  Army by early 1945 was killing on average well over 5,000 a day in its  occupied co-prosperity sphere? To understand why Hiroshima, understand 50,000  American casualties, 100,000 Japanese dead, and 100,000 Okinawan dead at the  conclusion of Okinawa ten weeks earlier, and then multiply it by a factor of  10 for the upcoming Japanese homeland invasion.

The Rising

At home, a huge mosque near Ground Zero in Manhattan will  rise up before the new World Trade Center (maybe Bruce Springsteen can do a  sequel to “The Rising”?). To suggest this is bad taste is bigoted. To suggest  that we don’t know the where, how, and why about the funding, or why a  self-proclaimed ecumenical group of Muslims wants to build ties by picking  this provocative spot, or who exactly is behind the idea (or where exactly the  promoter now is [3]) is the worst sort of Neanderthal right  prejudice.

No problem. We can assure the 3,000 dead that their passing  was marked by the enlightened harmony of a mosque preempting a new tower. What  we do know is that in about a year, all over the Middle East, al-Qaeda videos  will have photo-shopped “strong horse” posters and CDs of the ruins of 9/11 in  the shadow of a towering mosque, with the accustomed boilerplate about how  Atta et al. knocked down the looming towers in order to have Islam’s shrine  rise up in their place. It all sort of reminds one of the nasty reception the  president’s envoy on Islamic outreach just got from a Muslim audience in  India. He was “shocked” at his reception — or translated into Valley Girl  parlance: “Like, I can’t believe this is happening to me.”

I don’t think the polls quite capture the present public  anger, which in not abating. Everything seems to channel into a general furor:  Michelle’s movable feast from Costa del Sol to Martha’s Vineyard; the  president suing Arizona and counting on a judge to nullify the public will, as  part of a larger effort either by judicial nod or administrative fiat to get  amnesty for 15 million future voters who will reciprocate at the polls;  politicians bragging about handing out another $100 billion of someone else’s  money here, another $200 billion there; the constant assumption that popular  expression is retarded, and those who go to a tea party rally, vote to enforce  immigration law, want to see marriage as it has been for millennia, want to  cut federal spending, or are tired of identity politics are Palinesque  clingers.

The Best and the Brightest

The common denominator? If one were to  survey the elite campuses around 1975 and talk to those in law school,  political science, or the humanities, then imagine them 35 years later as our  elite leaders in government, the media, the universities, the foundations, and  the arts, one could pretty much expect what we now  have.

The present symptoms that characterize both our  popular culture and current governance —  shrill self-righteousness; abstract communalism juxtaposed with concrete  pursuit of the aristocratic good life; race/class/gender cosmic sermonizing  with private school and Ivy League for the kids; crass and tasteless public  expression; a serial inability to take responsibility for one’s actions; the  bipartisan mega-deficits; the inability to cut pensions and social security  for the baby boomers — from the trivial to the fundamental, all  derive from a bankrupt cohort that came of age in the sixties and  seventies.

We see the arrested adolescence and hypocrisy that  come from that sermonizing generation, whether in  Al Franken’s puerile face-making, the ideologically driven suicide at  Newsweek, the steady destruction of the New York Times, John Kerry’s  tax-avoiding yacht, the Great Gatsby Clinton wedding, Michelle on the Costa  del Sol, Nancy Pelosi’s jet, Tim Geithner’s tax skipping, or the constant  race-card playing of a Charles Rangel and Maxine Waters. Yes, one walk across  the Yale or Stanford campus circa 1975, and one could see pretty clearly what  sort of culture that bunch would create when it came of age and was handed  power. If that is reductionism, so be it.

Conservatives have run out of ideas.

Conservatives have run out of ideas.

An article by Jose de la Isla from the Hispanic Link appeared on my local editorial page. I wonder where he gets his news. Out of ideas? You have to be blind and deaf not to know about the real changes the majority wants. The biggest on my hit list is term limits. How about cutting taxes and cutting wasteful spending? What about cutting out “earmarks” and lifetime pay with insurance for the PEOPLE’S representatives? What about reducing the size of our monster Government?
What about enforcing our border and immigration laws? What about cutting aid to countries that hate us? What about those on the welfare free hand out wagon that have cell phones, buy booze and tobacco products? Well, the list goes on and on. Please add your favorites in the comment section.

What’s so bad about being a conservative? Our older generations saved a lot and borrowed little. If they didn’t have the money, they went without. It was not shameful to make your possessions last a long time. They worked hard and had a good life. Today, we want the latest gadgets, big homes, and big cars as long as we had good credit…. Now we are taking a step back and reevaluating our spending habits. What’s wrong with that? The Government has to do the same thing or all suffer from their socialistic policies. Anyone that says conservatives are out of ideas to make America better IS blind and deaf. Really out of touch.

Florida Politics- Fair Districts

Over the past few months, we have celebrated unanimous statewide editorial support and legal victories. Now it’s time to take the fight for FairDistricts to your community! We have to tell every voter about our amendments, what they do and how important they are to our state.

Mark the date on your calendar! On Saturday, August 28th, we invite you to host a house party for FairDistricts Amendments 5 and 6. Our goal is to have 56 house parties across Florida in support of our effort.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to achieve our goal! Will you host a house party on August 28th?

Hosts will be able to sign up on our website.  We will help you invite friends and colleagues to your house party. Most importantly, as part of the house party agenda, you will be able to show your guests a DVD of exclusive Florida outtakes from the movie Gerrymandering (to be released in theaters in October).  In addition to the DVD, we will also send other materials to help educate guests about how FairDistricts Amendments 5 and 6 will put power back in the hands of the people to choose their representatives.

Amendments 5 and 6 will STOP politicians from drawing districts to favor themselves.

Will you spread the word by signing up to host a house party?

We hope you will help us educate voters throughout Florida’s cities to vote YES on Amendments 5 and 6!
