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


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!

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…

They are teaching our kids to be gay!

Decision to teach kids to be 'gay' allowed to stand'This despicable ruling not of the people, nor for the people, but against the people'
Bob Unruh - October 08, 2008 - WorldNetDaily
A federal court decision approving mandatory public school instruction for children as young as kindergarten in how to be homosexual is being allowed to stand, drawing a description of "despicable" from the parent who unsuccessfully challenged his school district's "gay" advocacy agenda.

Estabrook Elementary
The U.S. Supreme Court without comment has refused to intervene in a case prompted by the actions of officials at Estabrook Elementary school in Lexington, Mass., who not only were teaching homosexuality to young children, but specifically refused to allow Christian parents to opt their children out of the indoctrination.
The case on which WND has reported previously involves Massachusetts father David Parker, who wi…

Bailout farce!

So just a quick note to bring everyones attention to the fact that the stock market is still diving. Does not surprise me. And of course, congress says it is now because there needs to be action on the bill faster. No, there should be NO action. I am still visibly shaken over the fact that so many of our elected representatives felt it necessary to go against the Constitution of the United States by passing this massive bailout.

I heard Tom Coburn's speech on the floor before the vote. I felt relieved that at least some members of congress had the Constitution in mind. But then he went against his own rhetoric and voted for the bill.

Why? He states on his web site that it was because Congress was the problem and he needed to take responsibility in dealing with it.

I'm sorry, but that doesn'tcut it. That's like saying I will put another hole in the bottom of my boat because it is my fault the first one is there. And then hope that the water from the first hole will exit th…

Pork Anyone?

So now the House has swung 58 more votes than they had last Monday and passed the bailout bill. It passed 263-171. At least 171 members of the house have read their constitution and realize what a catastrophic mistake we are making. What gets me is that many members voiced 'their displeasure' with the bill but voted for it anyway. That's like saying I hate crickets in my ice cream and then pouring them into your bowl.

The whole reason we are in this mess in the first place is because Congress and the federal Government has been involved. Rep Sue Myrick released a written statement. in it she said, "I don't want to have to vote for this bill, and I'm not defending it. It's full of things I don't believe in. But we are on the cusp of a complete catastrophic credit meltdown. There is no liquidity in the market. We are out of time. Either you believe that fact, or you don't. I do."

I have problems with sentiments such as these on many levels. I do…

'Achmed the Dead Terrorist'

I for one have seen this act and think it's absolutely ridiculous that someone would find it offensive. Of course this is coming from a sect of people who have no tolerance for others beliefs to begin with. So i suppose it should be no surprise that they also have no sense of humor. Check out this article:

Comedian Defends 'Achmed the Dead Terrorist' Puppet Routine Against South African Ban
By Joshua Rhett Miller

It's no laughing matter.
Funnyman ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is fuming after a ring tone advertisement based on his popular comedy skit, "Achmed the Dead Terrorist," was scrubbed from South African TV because it mocks Islam.
The ring tone was taken from a puppet routine performed by Dunham, a native Texan, in a TV special on Comedy Central. A 10-minute clip of the comedian's routine that was posted on YouTube has been viewed more than 66 million times since April.

VP Debate Transcript

Thursday night there was a Vice Presidential debate between Sen. Bidin and Gov Palin. The transcript from that debate-unedited and in it's entirety. I definitely have my own thoughts on the debate but will withhold them as to not cloud your judgement.


IFILL: Good evening from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. I'm Gwen Ifill of "The NewsHour" and "Washington Week" on PBS. Welcome to the first and the only 2008 vice presidential debate between the Republican nominee, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, and the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden of Delaware.
The Commission on Presidential Debates is the sponsor of this event and the two remaining presidential debates. Tonight's discussion will cover a wide range of topics, including domestic and foreign policy matters.
It will be divided roughly into five-minute segments. Each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond to a direct question and then an additional two minutes for rebuttal and follow-up…
