Will it be a crime to have your own opinion?

Outlawing opinion by Chuck Norris

It greatly alarms me that Americans' constitutional right of freedom of speech is being squeezed out of our culture. Several years ago, I watched then-"20/20" correspondent Diane Sawyer interview Saddam Hussein, who was dictator of Iraq at the time. She respectfully confronted him for the atrocities and executions he used as punishments for people who merely spoke out against him, his rule or his politics. Surprisingly naive of America's constitutional basis, Saddam asked, "Well, what happens to those who speak against your president?"

(He clearly was expecting that such speech was also a crime in the U.S. and punishable by law.) Shocked by his sheer ignorance of the U.S. -- and somewhat at a loss for words herself -- Diane quipped back in answering his question, "They host television talk shows!" Saddam's facial expression revealed that he was totally confused by her answer.

Sounds so far-out, doesn't …

Attack from all sides

So it is nothing new these days to feel like the enemies of freedom are at the gates and the foundation is crumbling. But even those who would call themselves conservatives are starting to attack from within.

Too long we have had those in the republican party who did not, and do not, uphold true conservative ideals. It is only too obvious by looking at what the republican majorities did the last time they were in power(and what they DIDN'T do as well) It is evident that many RINO's(Republicans in name only) have infiltrated the once dominantly conservative party.

It has caused me to ask often whether it may be time to join or try and create a new party. One that would represent my conservative values. A party that would try and realize the founders dream of what role government should play in the lives of Americans.

What so many have lost sight of is the fact that we rebelled against England because they were trying to control too much of our everyday life. When we finally …

Watch your back gun-owners.......

In a last minute sneak attack on gun owners, the Florida Legislature raided the concealed weapons and firearms licensing trust fund. This not only effects resident CCW license holders, but non-resident Florida license holders as well! They took $6 million from the Division of Licensing Concealed Weapons and Firearm Trust Fund that is intended, by law, to be used solely for administering the concealed weapons and firearms licensing program.

Winners and Losers

Are You an Obama Winner? Or an Obama Loser?
Posted 05/06/2009 ET

If there was one feeling that inspired almost a million Americans to come out for the Tax Day Tea Parties last month it was this: That our government, supposedly created of the people, by the people and for the people, is busy picking winners and losers.The feeling that our politics are increasingly rigged against us didn’t begin with President Obama.

Deciding to bailout Wall Street rather than let deserving companies go bankrupt began under President Bush. But the Obama Administration has elevated rewarding some Americans and punishing others to a governing philosophy.And as he has expanded the size and the scope of government, President Obama has only increased his ability to reach into our businesses, our communities, and even our homes to separate Americans into two groups: Those who will benefit from the new order, and those who will pay the bills.

What follows is just a partial list of the winners …
US Senate Aggressively Moves
On Gun Sale Restrictions
This is taken from – the website of the Senate of the United States of America:Tuesday, April 21, 2009 WASHINGTON , D.C. – Sens. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) today joined Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and victims and family members of the Virginia Tech tragedy, to introduce legislation to close the nation's "gun show loophole." "There is no rational reason to oppose closing the loophole. The reason it's still not closed is simple: the continuing power of the special interest gun lobby in Washington" Sen. Lautenberg said.
Why the focus on Gun Shows? Because these are transactions by private citizens. So even if you are thinking "I don't go to gun shows" you are a target if you are a gun owner.How will you protect your right to leave yo…

The Conservative Underground

Dear Fellow Conservative:Well, the "first 100 days" of the new Obama administration are over -- and already he is well on his way to "remaking" America, as he promised to do during his campaign.Not "restore," mind you. Not "rebuild." "Remake" -- as in, turning America into something it wasn't before.And if we allow him and his fellow Democrats to continue along this path, the country you and I know and love will simply no longer exist. Everything we conservatives have fought to defend and preserve will have been lost.In its place will be a country we scarcely recognize. What will it look like? Let me give you a glimpse...During his campaign, Barack Obama often spoke of his desire to "remake" America, to be a "transformational" President.Transforming it.And over the next few months, President Obama and the Democrats in Congress plan to deliver on that promise.Under color of "solving" an economi…

The Real Culture War

By ARTHUR C. BROOKSThere is a major cultural schism developing in America. But it's not over abortion, same-sex marriage or home schooling, as important as these issues are. The new divide centers on free enterprise -- the principle at the core of American culture.Despite President Barack Obama's early personal popularity, we can see the beginnings of this schism in the "tea parties" that have sprung up around the country. In these grass-roots protests, hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans have joined together to make public their opposition to government deficits, unaccountable bureaucratic power, and a sense that the government is too willing to prop up those who engaged in corporate malfeasance and mortgage fraud.The data support the protesters' concerns. In a publication with the ironic title, "A New Era of Responsibility," the president's budget office reveals average deficits of 4.7% in the five years after this recession is…
