One Plus One Equals 20 Extra Votes For Franken
by (more by this author)

It's bad enough that the Republican Party can't prevent Democrats from voting in its primaries and saddling us with The New York Times' favorite Republican as our presidential nominee. If the Republican Party can't protect an election won by the incumbent U.S. senator in Minnesota, there is no point in donating to the Republican Party.
The day after the November election, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman had won his re-election to the U.S. Senate, beating challenger Al Franken by 725 votes.
Then one heavily Democratic town miraculously discovered 100 missing ballots. And, in another marvel, they were all for Al Franken! It was like a completely evil version of a Christmas miracle.
As strange as it was that all 100 post-election, "discovered" ballots would be for one candidate, it was even stranger that the official time stamp for the miracle ballots printed out by the voting machine on …

Atheists' National Holiday?
by (more by this author)
Posted 12/16/2008 ETUpdated 12/16/2008 ET


Atheists from England to the West Coast of America are stepping up their efforts this year to make a bigger antagonistic splash on the Christmas scene. From London and Washington, D.C., buses to Colorado billboards, skeptics are skewering religions with little respect to the adherents of the religions.



At the forefront is a group's government-sanctioned posting of a sign by a Nativity scene in the Capitol of Washington state (and now also in Wisconsin and Illinois): "At this season of THE WINTER SOLSTICE may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.



"I am a patriot, and I believe that atheists are free to believe, speak and post whatever they want. This is America, and that's their First Amendment right. But to do so wit…

Back to Basics

I for one have not hidden from the fact that I am scared to death of what a democrat controlled federal government is going to do to this country. But I have to say I do not find myself upset that John McCain is not President. Why is it that I feel this way?

Well, for starters, John McCain did not and does not represent the conservative values I hold dear. He has time and time again 'crossed party lines' to bring forth legislation that no true conservative should be found even near. But when pressed with the choice we had, I as almost 57 million other Americans did, held my nose and voted for him. But many did not. What was it about Obama that so many conservatives, from both sides, found compelling?

If you just listen to what he was saying heading down the home stretch, Obama was taking pages out of Ronald Wilson Reagan's book. He was preaching a conservative agenda. Now I do not hold my breath that Senator Obama(he is not President yet)is going to in any way act conservati…

How did Obama get elected?

Image
So how exactly did Senator Obama get himself elected President? Obviously the media bias was a huge factor in not vetting the true Obama for what he really believes. Watch the following clips and then check out the site where I found it. It is How Obama Got Elected and is a telling look at those who voted for Obama and what THEY think. Unbelievable really!




It is amazing to me the extent of the mainstream media's love afair with President elect Obama. What happened to fair and honest news reporting? What happened to the reporter who investigates the depth of the candidate no matter what they turn up? What will now happen to this country because of the lack of opposition news reporting?

Stay tuned to find out!

Run on Guns

Since the recent selection of President-elect Obama, gun sales across the country have seen increases up to 50% in some places. In the period right before the election until now there have been sharp rises in gun and ammunition sales. Why is that? Many feel that they may lose their rights to purchase these firearms once Obama takes office and the gun control heavy congress can push new laws through.

I would tend to agree with them. Obama ran a deceitful campaign on many levels. It is not open for debate. It IS fact that he purposely avoided addressing many issues and when he did, did so with generalities and vague references to what was 'fair' and 'sensible'.

According to the FBI, during election week, background checks, an indicator of firearms sales, were almost 50% higher than the same period last year.

If the country is hurting so bad economically, then why are so many buying guns? I think it is safe to say that with those we have in the white house AND congress, gun…

So Associations don't matter, right?

Hamas says met Obama advisors in Gaza

Ismail Haniyeh's political advisor says Islamist group met with US president-elect's aides in Strip following online correspondence; 'they told us not to come out with any statements so as not to harm Obama's campaign,' Ahmad Yousuf says
Roee Nahmias

Ahmad Yousuf, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's political advisor, said that during the recent US presidential race a secret meeting between senior Islamist group figures and advisors to President-elect Barack Obama was held in Gaza.

"We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama)," Yousuf said in an interview with London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat, published Tuesday

Yousuf said Hamas's contact with Obama&…

Uncle Teddy!

Ted Nugent rant from a radio talk show behind enemy lines in the state of California:

Your logic, your truth, your good will, your decency, your work ethic -- it still is the guide post of America. You are "We the people."

It is the lunatic fringe that is celebrated by a media bent on socialism, bent on revitalizing the Mao Zedong agenda -- you are not the minority, you are the majority.

You know rush hour? What a pain in the *ss rush hour is? Do you have rush hour in Bakersfield? I bet you have rush hour. You know what that is? You know what that is? Those are people with alarm clocks. Those are people who get up because they have a burning fire in their soul that says, "You must be productive. In order to be a good, decent human being, you must be an asset. You must work hard before you play hard."

So Gary, you are not alone. But, what the real curse is, it's not the lying, left-wing, Mao media, it's those of us who know better, but don't speak up. The pe…

Indentured Servitude or Slavery?

The United States of America has totally and unequivocally broken any semblance of the glass ceiling for blacks. A self proclaimed black man has been elected to the highest office in the land. In a country with the scars of slavery, regardless of his socialist views and ideas, this is an historic achievement.

So why would President-elect Obama suggest a form of slavery to be instituted in America? Within 24 hours of becoming the declared winner of the Presidency, Obama had on his website Change.gov an outline for one of his proposals for America.

Obama thinks that the community service he did helped him become the great man he is. That may be true. Obama thinks that if youth performed service for others they would become better individuals and be able to see beyond themselves. This too is most likely true. Obama feels many youth today do not do any kind of community service for their communities. I also feel this is true. But this is where Obama takes a hard left.

He want to ma…

Salute a Veteran

Today, November 11th, 2008 is the day we as a Nation celebrate Veterans Day. A day set aside to pay homage to the lives that have been lost in the name of this great country. A day also to celebrate all veterans of the United States Armed forces who HAVE and who AREsacrificing and risking their very lives for the sake of freedom.

A history:

Armistice Day Becomes Veterans Day

World War I officially ended on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. The actual fighting between the Allies and Germany, however, had ended seven months earlier with the armistice, which went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. Armistice Day, as November 11 became known, officially became a holiday in the United States in 1926, and a national holiday 12 years later. On June 1, 1954, the name was changed to Veterans Day to honor all U.S. veterans.

In 1968, new legislation changed the national commemoration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in O…

Happy Birthday US Marines

Image
Just because I am a little biased towards the Us Army does not mean I do not hold in high regard ALL of the united States Armed Forces. With that being said, A big Happy Birthday to The United States Marines! 1775: Founding of the Marine Corps
A legacy is born
During the American Revolution, many important political discussions took place in the inns and taverns of Philadelphia, including the founding of the Marine Corps. A committee of the Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern to draft a resolution calling for two battalions of Marines able to fight for independence at sea and on shore. The resolution was approved on November 10, 1775, officially forming the Continental Marines. As the first order of business, Samuel Nicholas became Commandant of the newly formed Marines. Tun Tavern’s owner and popular patriot, Robert Mullan, became his first captain and recruiter. They began gathering support and were ready for action by early 1776. Each year, the Marine Corps marks November 10…

Constitutional Relationships

Statement on Signing the Executive Order Establishing the Presidential Advisory Committee on Federalism
April 8, 1981 - Ronald Reagan

The Presidential federalism advisory committee that I am forming today is a first step in helping me to restore a proper constitutional relationship between the Federal, State, and local governments. Unfortunately, our decentralized system of government has over the years been bent out of shape. The Federal Government too often has treated elected State and local officials as if they were nothing more than administrative agents for Federal authority. I will look to this Advisory Committee to help me find ways to return towards a proper balance.
The people who make up State and local governments are as capable as any in Washington, D.C. My administration looks forward to working with them in concrete ways. We need to provide for greater authority and responsibility in the States, counties, cities, and towns -- to return government to those closest to the pe…

One Man, One Woman

There was not much for me to cheer about with Obama elected as my President. But there was another issue that I was following quite closely. In Arizona, we were attempting to add an amendment to our States Constitution forever defining marriage as between one man and one woman. California and Florida had similar propositions on their ballots.

This was not a party issue. This was a moral issue. Marriage IS defined in the bible. As well as the fact that homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God. But this was not in any way tied to taking anything away from those who want partner rights or medical benefits for gay roommates. This was about keeping marriage as God intended. Between one man and one Woman.

I could not believe the amount of hostility by the opponents of this proposition. I had to replace signs frequently. There was one time when a neighbor told me my sign was in the street burning. I saw many signs defaced with a large NO over the Yes in Yes for 102: Yes …

Reagan had the right idea!

Ronald Reagan inherited a country experiencing gasoline shortages. Read how he handled this problem. Did we ever run out of gas since?

Statement on Signing Executive Order 12287, Providing for the Decontrol of Crude Oil and Refined Petroleum Products

January 28, 1981

I am ordering, effective immediately, the elimination of remaining Federal controls on U.S. oil production and marketing.
For more than 9 years, restrictive price controls have held U.S. oil production below its potential, artificially boosted energy consumption, aggravated our balance of payments problems, and stifled technological breakthroughs. Price controls have also made us more energy-dependent on the OPEC nations, a development that has jeopardized our economic security and undermined price stability at home.
Fears that the planned phaseout of controls would not be carried out, for political reasons, have also hampered production. Ending these controls now will erase this uncertainty.
This step will also stimulate energ…

Inaugural Address

To a few of us here today this is a solemn and most momentous occasion, and yet in the history of our nation it is a commonplace occurrence. The orderly transfer of authority as called for in the Constitution routinely takes place, as it has for almost two centuries, and few of us stop to think how unique we really are. In the eyes of many in the world, this every-4-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle.

Mr. President, I want our fellow citizens to know how much you did to carry on this tradition. By your gracious cooperation in the transition process, you have shown a watching world that we are a united people pledged to maintaining a political system which guarantees individual liberty to a greater degree than any other, and I thank you and your people for all your help in maintaining the continuity which is the bulwark of our Republic.

The business of our nation goes forward. These United States are confronted with an economic affliction of great proportion…

Obamanation!

I accept that 53 % of the American People voted for Obama last Tuesday. I do however have some major concerns. How did a self described socialist whack job become President of the United States of America?

The number one job of President is to honor and defend the Constitution of these United States. How can Obama even pretend to do this when he has come out and stated that in his mind the Constitution is inherently flawed. He wants to give judges the ability to legislate from the bench. This has been the single most problematic effect of activist judges.

When the founders created the three branches of government they split the legislative branch so that corruption could not overtake the whole branch. They created the Executive branch as a safeguard for the Constitution, to look after her interests. The founders, having studied in great detail, all governments from the Roman Republic to English Parliamentaryprocedure, were very careful to make sure there were checks and balances…

727 Days left until 2010 Elections

There are approximately 727 days left until the 2010 congressional elections. There is a lot of work to be done between now and then.

Nazi Pelosi and her one party rule will start in earnest to push for the far left ideas they have wanted and waited for.

I consider this election of Obama to the office of President of the USA as a warning. I do not decry him as the anti-Christ. I do however fear what he and a liberally led congress can do to the very fabric of this Country and the Constitution it is founded upon.

The fact that 52% of the American people are willing to sacrifice their freedoms for social handouts is beyond me. Why usually rational people can do something so irrational defies logic. But I do have my theories. The first of which is the state of our educational system in America. It is deplorable to say the least.

First of all, we have been misled into thinking that education is a right. It is not and has never been. And now today we average cost of over 10,000 dol…

President Obama

I post this on election day. Am I trying to be prophetic? I should say not. If one were to believe the obviously left leaning media, anyone who would vote for any candidate other than Obama should stay home because their vote will not matter. This has not been the intellectually honest and truth seeking media I thought we had in America. I have always felt proud of our country that gave the freedom of the press to act as a kind of check on corruption and double speak.

In this new day of instant news and information availability, a candidate cannot speak one way to one group and then change the message to suit another group of voters. At least not without being called out about it. That is up until the mainstream media decided to climb into bed with Mr. Obama. I am just sick that he has been given a pass on every misstep and association that should at the very least be explained honestly and forthright. I will not mention them all here because at this point it is for naught. …

My Vote Matters

One thing I hate to hear from people is that they have only one vote, so why even bother? Let me tell you why you need to bother. Because if you do not vote and stay apathetic you end up with the kind of people in power that we have now and have the potential of seeing as President and Vice President of the United states of America. If you do not vote, as far as I am concerned, you have no right to complain about your leaders.

With that being said I wish to break down where my votes are going on Nov. 4th:

President - John McCain
US Representative, District 6 - Jeff Flake
State Senator, District 18 - Russell Pearce
State Representatives, District 18 - Cecil Ash, Steve Court
Corporation Commission - Marian McClure, Bob Stump, Barry Wong
County Board of Supervisors, District 2 - Don StapleyCounty Assesor - Keith Russell
County Attorney - Andrew Thomas
County Recorder - Helen Purcell
County School Superintendent - Don Covey
Sheriff - Joe Arpaio
County Treasurer - Charles "Hos" Hoskins

Socialism

Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.



Those are the words of Sen. Obama. Just words? This country was founded by men who wanted to make more of themselves. We have had millions of immigrants who have come here to have a chance at the American dream. What is that dream? To be able to work hard and as a result of that work achieve success. What Obama wants is for you to give more of the money you earn to those who are not working for their own success. In the words of his running mate Biden, "It's time to be patriotic and pay more taxes to help lift up this country".

I do not have a problem with the idea of giving a helping hand to those in need. My faith is a big believer in this notion. I just don't like the idea of the government coming for my money and deciding where it g…

Same sex marriage results

Had enough?Citizens, take back your government!

Please read the following article. Open your eyes America. Do not be lulled into the trap being set by those who would strip your freedoms and take away the very rights they will purport to be fighting for.

What same-sex "marriage" has done to Massachusetts
It's far worse than most people realize

October 20, 2008
by Brian Camenker
Anyone who thinks that same-sex “marriage” is a benign eccentricity which won’t affect the average person should consider what it has done in Massachusetts. It’s become a hammer to force the acceptance and normalization of homosexuality on everyone. And this train is moving fast. What has happened so far is only the beginning.

On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court announced its Goodridge opinion, ruling that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex “marriage.” Six months later, homosexual marriages began to be performed.

The public schools
The homosexual “marriage” onslaught i…

Politics and Common Sense

Politics and common sense.

Not two words you would think go together, at least not recently. When our founding fathers were caught up in the great cause of liberty they did not take the breaking of the ties with Britain lightly. Many of the founding fathers had deep and loyal feelings for their mother country. They thought of themselves as patriots to the crown. There were those who did not give being a 'subject ' to the crown even a second thought.

These 'revolutionaries' did not just wake up one day and decide they would fight a revolution. These men were good and just men. Most of them were well off, either by birth or by the sweat of ones brow. This new land America had truly given birth to a new feeling. A feeling that one could rise from nothing and become anything.

That great First American, Benjamin Franklin, was proof. Having been born very poor to a large family found himself an indentured servant or apprentice to his brother and his print shop. He e…

Genderless Marriage

I think being a retired Judge gives us an insight and many things that clarify why this proposition [8] is so important to work toward!

GENDERLESS MARRIAGE: A BRAVE NEW WORLD?
by William T. GarnerJudge of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Retired

It is no exaggeration to suggest that when California voters go to the polls in November to select a new president, they will also decide another issue at least as important. A 'yes' vote on Proposition 8 will create a state constitutional amendment allowing marriage only between one man and one woman. A 'no' vote will allow same-sex couples to marry.

What is the benefit and what is the harm of recognizing genderless marriage (marriage without a gender requirement)? Aside from being able to call themselves 'married, 'there appears to be no benefit to same-sex couples that did not exist at the time of the 4-3 California Supreme Court decision of May 15, 2008 legalizing genderless marriage. Section 297.5 of the Ca…
