Senate Prostitute Graduates to Call Girl Status


The price tag continues to rise as your tax dollars are prostituted for political votes on Obama care. So far, Senator Mary Landrieu, D-La. Scores the largest back alley trick from Senate Pimp Harry Reid, D-NV with an amazing $100 Million Dollars. Who is the John? The American Tax Payer! We are the only ones getting screwed! This undeniably crooked deal was secretly placed in the health care bill as an adjustment in section 2006 which allows for “certain states” recovering from a major disaster, or a major disaster area as declared by FEMA since 2004 will receive 100 Million over the next ten years in federal subsidies spent on funding that state’s Medicaid plan. That makes a grand total of only one state, Louisiana that will benefit from it. Forget about the coastal areas of Mississippi and Alabama.
It seems there is no limit to the tax payer’s money that can be spent by these Senators who are outlandishly pushing this bum health care plan not unlike the Chicago mob who would break the legs of business owners who would not pay protection money. This Health Care Bill becomes more and more costly by the minute, but what is the most outrageous aspect is how these Senators are posing as representing their constituents by holding out for more pork before they commit their vote to keep this bill on the path of passage.
These Senators are doing nothing less than prostituting their vote for political gain while the hard working citizen’s of their states are being taxed to provide the dirty pay off money. What are being sold are the rights of their constituents to choose the best health care possible for their families. Where will these political prostitutes be when the best health care this world has ever known has been replaced by a government run fiasco that could care less about your personal health? Let’s remember that these Senators will have their own federal health care coverage and will not have to rely on the scam they are selling us under the name of health care.
Congratulations Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana! You will forever be known in history for being a political prostitute. I hope it was worth your integrity.

What Happened to Our Country?



It seems to me that the majority of American’s are asking themselves “What happened to our country?” We no longer recognize our country as we once did. America use to be considered the most powerful country across the globe, its president the most powerful man in the world regardless of which party he represented. Not any longer.

Our president is known world wide as a blundering weakling and apologist for the once powerful and proud. This character weakness has not been accepted by any foreign country as anything but sissy weak. Imagine the fear it strikes in the heart of our allies to see the once great nation of America with all its historical might and military strength collapse under the religion of political correctness under the guard of its high priest Obama. Do our allies feel safe with Obama as Commander and Chief when the majority of Americans do not? If our level of confidence in Obama has plummeted along with the peaceful leaders around the world, what must our enemies think? I would suggest that their confidence has never been higher.

We have witnessed president Obama’s handling of the war in Afghanistan from strong criticism as a candidate, stern direction and decision of what his plans will be, to complete and total indecision almost to the point of ignoring the Afghan war altogether. It is as clear as the ring of a bell the message he is sending to our fighting men and women and our enemy alike that he is concerned above all else what the radical left of his party thinks than what his own hand picked field General believes we need in order to win this war. President Obama is more concerned with winning political battles than the battles against our enemy.

On the home front he suspends the investigation of the Fort Hood terrorist attack to further other political goals. Was he afraid of what the investigation would reveal such as a real and present danger on American soil of further terrorist attacks? I believe so. Whatever the reason we may ponder it is crystal clear he does not want the American public to know. There are more important issues in his opinion such as this disaster of a health care plan he has staked his political career on. As the blunders of this president and his incompetent administration continue to pour in on a daily basis, we Americans are far less safe than we were before he took office.

Obama Care Launches Pre Emptive Strike of Rationing

Government Imposed Health Care Independent Studies.

Even a Termite could see through this “Independent Study” of what age women are recommended to have a Mammogram for the prevention or detection of growth or lumps which may be cancerous.

“The USPSTF recommends biennial screening mammography for women between the ages of 50 and 74 years. (Grade B recommendation)

I can hardly imagine anyone that would believe such hogwash that has been suggested by this Obama-care propaganda. So you ladies are being told that they recommend you wait until you are between the age of 50 and 74? A good majority of you will be dead if you chose to wait for a mammogram until you reach age 74 of any number of diseases! Of course I am not a Doctor nor am I on an Obama Medical Task Force. Just wondering, are these taskforce armed and wear boots? Sounds like it to me. Could it be the task force members will also serve on the death panels? It is obvious that these proponents of the public option have no desire or concern with saving the Tah Tah’s. It is easy to see that the rationing of health care and preventative measures have already begun prior to the outrageously ridiculous and mostly secretive bill being passed. It is also plainly clear to understand the motive behind the so called “independent studies”, and that being that the studies will be the basis to deny mammograms to those who fall under the government suggested age based on the studies. This is a form of rationing disguised as suggested medical science or expertise in the field. I wonder if the white house passed out lab coats to the “non-biased expert panel members? Well, fair question isn’t it? Somebody please explain the following study results. They sound very confusing and I wonder if it means their opinions of these studies are worthless?

“The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the additional benefits and harms of clinical breast examination beyond screening mammography in women 40 years or older. (I statement)”

If that isn’t enough to grab your attention by the Tah Tah’s maybe this is!

“The USPSTF recommends against clinicians teaching women how to perform breast self-examination. (Grade D recommendation)”

That doesn’t sound like what we have learned from thousands of breast cancer survivors!

Did the A.D.A. not endorse this health care bill? I wonder what the pay off was for that endorsement? This is the first of many so called independent studies that will determine what treatments or preventative measures the American people will be allowed to receive. With the popularity and awareness of breast cancer being at its all time high, I suspect this administration chose to sneak this study in before the bill even passed to ensure future savings against the incredible costs of these medical tests and that if the American people are fooled other tests and diagnostic necessities could easily be manipulated at their will for yet more enormous savings.

Bottom line is this. If this Bill Passes the facts of medical science will be whatever the government decides they want the facts to be. I strongly urge you to contact your members of congress and demand that they vote no on this bill and pressure other congressmen to do the same. Apparently Washington believes that we Americans are fools and unable to see what they plan to do with our health care.

Are we?

America Joins Nations Led by the Insane

Who would have guessed our country would be led by radicals so blinded by hatred of the practice of government constrained by the constitution that today we rank among nations such as Libya, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela with leaders who have displayed leadership so incompetent that sanity becomes questioned?

One of the latest of such perceived insanities is this administration’s failure to come through on a campagne promise of closing the prison in Guantanamo Bay for Enemy Combatants has caused these radical rookies to scramble to find a suitable place to store some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists here within our very own borders of the continental United States.

Was not the war in Iraq and Afghanistan intended to ensure national security by preventing weapons of mass destruction and Islamic Muslim extremist terrorists from reaching our land to wreak the havoc and deadly destruction against our own citizen’s here on our own soil? Has this administration led by Barrack Husain Obama forgotten what happened on September 11th, 2001 so quickly? Our country does not need these super murderous villains’ on our soil. The best place for them was Guantanamo Bay away from us you idiots!
To add insult to injury, the only time these radicals in Washington even take the constitution into consideration is for the benefit of giving these murderous barbarians civil rights, to allow them to be tried in federal criminal courts with the same rights that are extended under the constitution to American civilians for those whose only purpose in life is to kill Americans.

What kind of lunacy is that?

Now we American’s get to look forward to these terrorists coming to our cities to be tried in federal criminal courts, putting the safety of all citizen’s in danger of those Muslims who are already here that are loyal to radical Islam banning together in Jihad attacks against federal buildings, judges, jurists and those chosen to serve on the jury. Is the level of incompetence so high in this administration that they cannot foresee the dangers of such an asinine plan? Or is our president a Muslim himself and so crafty that he understands that the chances of acquittal would increase greatly under the rules of law in a civilian criminal court as opposed to a rightful military tribunal?

Either way this insanity is extremely dangerous to our national security.

Our Cowardly Congress

constitution

How is it that we have 535 members of Congress and 100 Senators and all but a very few are allowing political correctness to govern how they represent the people of this nation?
Why do so few of them, be it Republicans or members of the Double-Standard party have any backbone at all? Are not most of these member’s lawyers, even some former members of the military? Should they not know the Bill of Rights? They all have sworn an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States of America and yet do not stand for their right to free speech, and much less the free speech of their constituents.
It is truly sad that “We the People” sit by idly while the so called Representatives continuously allow or ignore the Constitution to the point of it being a meaningless document. They swore an oath to God and the people of this country to lead fairly under the direction of the Constitution and have turned their backs on its meaning. Meanwhile they in turn assume all power over us to do with as they will with nothing guiding them but the poisonous ideology of political correctness pushed by the radical far left members of the Double-Standard party.
You would have to live in a cave without any contact to the outside world to know that these politicians governed by political correctness only serve to protect the small fringe groups, select minorities, illegal aliens, foreign combatants, terrorists, criminals, and the freaky and kooky elements of society while totally condemning the American way of life, Christianity, and the mass majority of working class voters who do not fit the aforementioned members of society.
It is way past time that we as Americans demonstrate our anger at their cowardice of unprecedented proportions by systematically holding each and every one of them accountable by our voices and our votes. At the same time we need to voice our anger towards the mainstream media and news outlets that we will no longer accept they’re lies and leftwing agenda spun rhetoric. We should never allow ourselves to listen to any broadcast of propaganda driven by political correctness nor patronize any business or corporation that does so.
How much longer will we sleep and do nothing while they feverishly work hard day and night to strip us of every right we have as citizens in this country who rightly should hold the power?
Will we wait until we are their slaves before we try to break free from the shackles they so desperately want to confine us with?
This means you!
Contact your representatives today and announce your determination to vote them out unless they grow a backbone and get in line with the majority of the American people.
Please watch this video. Every American and every student should see this video.

America Needs A Woman For President

sarah
Political correctness has destroyed both the Democrat and Republican parties. It has placed diversity above common sense in almost every aspect of American life. The middle class is no longer effectively represented by its politicians elected to serve them because they are unable to argue the concerns and wishes of their constituents out of fear of character assassination from the politically correct left. This has happened so often not only in political arenas but also in the private sector to the point that our Representatives are to cowardly to speak their mind. We do have the right to free speech in this country for the time being, but we are quickly losing it by the cowardly actions of those who consider themselves to important to risk their political futures for the sake of our freedom of speech and right to government decent. Yes, our politicians on both sides of the isle have sold us out for their time in the spotlight of politics. They are cowards that refuse to make a stand for what so many have died for in order for us to keep the rights of free speech. That freedom is exactly what made this country so great, the freedom that ideals could be debated in the best interest of we the people! Let us remember the fact that your average Joe is very unlikely to hold the office of a representative without possession of large amounts of personal wealth or fame. The corruption of political campaign contributions has eliminated the odds of your average citizen reaching such levels of government leadership. So what we are stuck with to represent us is rich politicians who are limited with their effectiveness by their race, religion, gender, political viewpoints and above all else their personal fortunes. What we need as president in my opinion is a conservative woman. Women are far less intimidated about speaking what they feel is the truth or saying what they feel is right for our country. Yes, they are heavily targeted by the far left politically correct crowd but they do a far better job of ignoring it and pushing through regardless. That is exactly what we need. The conservatives in this country far out number all the rest but are unable to have someone with backbone that will stand up to the plate and hit the hardballs thrown at them from the left. We need a woman who has risen from the grass roots of middle class America and possesses true American values. One who is unafraid or unashamed to claim Christianity and promote family values. I believe at this point in time that Sarah Palin is the only one who fits all these attributes and fits them well. I have no doubts that Sarah Palin has the personal strength and intellect that is required to hold the office of president and without a doubt she is competent to handle the position. Sarah Palin speaks with authority and is unafraid of the personal attacks that are still heaped on her even today. I believe it is time we give her a chance to show her true strength which she was unable to show as a vice presidential candidate. I believe it is past time that we elect someone willing to restore our freedom of speech to its original constitutional strength.

Lou Dobbs, Looking for a New Frontier

lou
Lou Dobbs is tired of the Kool-Aid it seems and he no longer wishes to force feed it to his audience of over 800,000 viewers. I sense a sense of responsibility from this lone wolf in the national news media. Is it possible that Lou Dobbs feels he owes his audience the unabated truth? Could it be that Lou Dobbs has a brilliant mind and is tired of his objective viewpoints being stifled by the cable news network’s long running bias? Maybe Lou Dobbs feels he has more to offer his viewers than the constant diatribe of politically correct manufactured tone which CNN has always offered for the liberal side of politics? I am willing to risk embarrassment of being wrong but I feel Lou Dobbs wants to break away free from the shackles of limited speech and ideals. He stated that others have urged him to move on to where he can engage in “constructive problem solving”. We all know that isn’t possible in the bleeding heart world of liberalism. I think he knows that sometimes hearts have to be broken and feelings may be hurt when true change is sought, and real problems are tackled in order to make this a better world. There is no better place in the world than the United States, at least until limitations have been placed on the freedom to think and speak for one’s self. The Pioneer’s once had that idea which led to the freedoms that we all enjoy and as in those days there were always those who sought to remove us from them. Maybe Lou Dobbs merely wants to be a Pioneer in a new frontier where his voice can speak his own thoughts instead of the thoughts of an establishment of agenda’s. Wherever Lou Dobbs ventures on his next expedition, I hope he is true to himself and his viewers.

Political Correctness Now Kills

Political Correctness Now Kills

The religion of Political Correctness which keeps the Freedom of Speech in a Full-Nelson Hold has now cost the lives of 13 proud members of our United States military. The politics of fear has grown to a point that our own military personnel are afraid to report terrorist suspects, even those that have infiltrated their own organizations. In this case, the deadly terrorist attack at Fort Hood committed by the terrorist, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan

hasan

who murdered the 13 soldiers during a time of war against terror had previously made countless remarks against our own military’s involvement in the war on terror against Muslims and nothing was done to investigate this matter properly. The reason why it wasn’t reported up through the channels of the United States Army was because of fear of reprisals for stating facts that should be investigated but were not due to the suspect being of Muslim faith and a minority in the military. Everyone knows that to dare suggest that a Muslim be investigated as a terror suspect, they risk being labeled insensitive or worse, a racist is too much liability and not worth losing your rank, position or your job over altogether. This time it cost the very valuable lives of 13 military troops in our very own back yard. What an incredible shame! To make this tragedy of silence even worse, within hours of the cold blooded murder of our soldiers the FBI announces immediately that this was not an act of terrorism. Really? Why jump to conclusions? Oh, God forbid any of us local yokels see this for what it is and suggest that this Muslim who wore our uniform just terrorized the nation with yet another attack on our soil. Is the FBI so efficient and fabulous that they were able to determine this was in fact not a terrorist attack? Bravo for the FBI. We later learn that the Pentagon stated that they were not notified by U. S. Intelligent Agencies that they had intercepted e-mail between Major Nidal Malik Hasan and extremist Anwar Al-Awlaki an Imam with links to Al-Qaeda. Why were they not notified?

More fear of Political Correctness or less freedom of speech?

I mean come on; we are depending on these agencies and the Pentagon for our Homeland Security? Oh, by the way, Anwar Al-Awlaki praised Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan as a Hero for viciously and cowardly murdering our young warriors at Fort Hood. Oh, but our wonderful and diplomatic President cautions us

ALeqM5irtggHQstCfYYE7xPbmTHObfuocA

“not to jump to conclusions”

about why our soldiers were murdered. Can our White House not read the writing on the wall? We are targeted for attack by radical Muslims and the leaders of this country are pretending not to know who wants us dead. Meanwhile, the Muslim’s continue to scream Jihad! I have heard we now have another medical phenomenon called

“Jihad Denial Syndrome”.

Apparently, our President, Barrack Hussein Obama, all of Congress, and most of our Intelligence gathering agencies suffer from this.

They need immediate treatment for Jihad Denial Syndrome.

Speaking of “Jihad Denial Syndrome” our guardian of Homeland Security, Secretary Janet Napolitano rushed to Abu Dhabi, capital city of the United Emirates to kiss their asses by trying to convince them that there will not be any Anti-Muslim Backlash. Piss on that! Let me tell you silly woman, I am very pissed off like most all red-blooded Americans are. She was quoted as saying

“This was a terrible tragedy for all involved”

Excuse me Janet Napolitano, are you saying that this was a tragedy for terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan and the rest of the Anti-American Terrorist? What a fool you are! She also stated

“This was an “individual” who does not, obviously, represent the Muslim Faith”
janet-napolitano

Is this woman for real? Or is this the effects of a three day binge of smoking crack? Talking about jumping to conclusions! This woman should be fired instantly. Instead they let her travel the world apologizing out of fear that we Americans may not trust Muslims. Remember, this is the clown that warned of returning combat veterans to be a risk of terrorism within the United States. Can we safely say she has proven herself totally incompetent yet? The United Emirates and the rest of the Muslim world must be laughing their robes off at this woman and the rest of America. Could you imagine that they think we all think like her? This religious practice of political correctness is no longer just a threat to our freedom of speech and our jobs if we do not comply, but now a threat to our very lives as seen in Fort Hood. If this can happen on the largest Army base in the country, it can surely happen in your neighborhood!
It is obvious that we can no longer trust this administration to keep us safe on our own soil.
Speak up and speak out America! Our lives depend on it.

A Dastardly Murder
As published in “The Bessemer”
Saturday April 6, 1889

On yesterday (Friday) a warrant was issued for the arrest of a Negro, Sandy Jones living in Prince Addition South Bessemer. Jones had made threats to kill another Negro and was carrying a Winchester rifle intentionally to put his threats into execution during the day he works at Sloss mines.

Officers John Manning, Fulton and Woods went over about eleven o’clock last night to arrest him. He was at home, he and his wife living in a small board dwelling near Crawford & Folshee’s store. Officer Manning stationed Woods at the rear door while he and Fulton went to the front. Manning knocked and on hearing a noise within, called out to Jones to open the door, that he had a warrant for his arrest. Jones replied, “ All right, that he was hunting a match to strike a light”. Finally Jones opened the door and asked manning for a match, which on receiving he closed the door again. After some little time Manning again called to him to come on or open the door. Jones then opened the door and said, “ Come in Mr. Manning”. As Manning stepped upon the threshold Jones put the Winchester almost at his breast and fired, the ball passing through the heart, and of course killing him instantly. Manning’s body fell out onto the ground, but Jones kept on firing some four or five shots.
In the meantime Fulton went to a side window and broke out a pane of glass and fired four or five shots from his revolver at him. A lamp was burning and the distance was not over twelve to fifteen feet and he ought to have been hit. After firing, Jones passed out of doors into the darkness and escaped.

John Manning was about twenty-eight years of age. He is from Cullman, where his mother now lives and came to Bessemer even before it was started, being engaged in the construction of the mineral line. For over a year past he was connected with the police force of this city.

Manning was courteous and pleasant in his manner, very gentlemanly in his behavior, well liked by everybody and was considered one of the bravest officers on the force. He was a fine looking man, black hair and eyes and a heavy, long flowing black mustache.

His dastardly and totally unprovoked murder has aroused a strong feeling of resentment, and if the Negro could be captured today the majesty of the law might whistle for its dignity.

Sandy Jones belongs to that class of Negroes known as “Hard Cases”, the only safe course for citizen’s to pursue with reference to this class is upon the first premonitions of breaking out or defying the law, to string them up or drive them from the country to some other section where the people will string them up.

Efforts are being made to trace the murderer, but so far without any clue. Later the Citizen’s are raising funds to offer a reward for Jones arrest, and the following telegram has been forwarded to the Chief of Police at Birmingham, Decatur, Anniston, Calera, Tuscaloosa, and Blocton. “ A large reward is offered for the capture of one Sandy Jones, Who murdered a policeman in Bessemer last night. Said Jones is a Negro about five feet seven inches high, ginger cake color, very thin mustache, small eyes, thick set weight about 150 pounds, about 25 years of age. Had a Winchester rifle 38 caliber”.

The Crime That Is Now Exciting Bessemer

__
Circumstances Attending The Killing—
The Excitement Now Is A Maner Subsided.

Birmingham, Ala. April 7th—

A Most cold blooded murder was committed at Bessemer Friday Night at 12 o’clock.

Policeman John manning, one of oldest and most valuable men on the force, was the victim, and Sandy Jones, a Negro, was the murderer.

An Age-Herald reporter went down to Bessemer yesterday afternoon, and although there had been rumor of wild excitement and threats of lynching, the town was very quiet and the public pulse was not above the normal beat. There had been considerable talk, and some excitement when the killing was first known yesterday morning, but that soon died away and everybody went quietly about their business and left the officers of the law to catch and deal with the criminal.

There are many and various accounts of the circumstances attending the killing, but the following were obtained by the police authorities of the place, and can be relied on.

About 8 o’clock Friday night complaints were made to the police that some Negroes living in south Bessemer had threatened to kill another Negro living in the vicinity, and warrants were sworn out for Sandy Jones and three others, said to be in the plot.

Several members of the force took the warrants and began searching for the Negroes, but not one of them could be found. This was about 9 o’clock.

About 11 o’clock Officers John Manning, m. Woods and James Potter started out again to try and catch the Negroes.

On their way out they stopped at the residence of Officer Fulton and he accompanied them. The first arrest was quietly and quickly made. The Negro wanted was taken completely by surprise and the officers entered his house and pulled him out of bed almost before he was fully aware of what was going on. He had a shot gun loaded with buck shot lying under his head. But was yanked out to quickly for an opportunity to use it. The second Negro wanted did not resist and was arrested without trouble.

Officer Fulton then pulled then piloted the party around to the house of Sandy Jones, about thirty yards from the Louisville and Nashville railroad, and a quarter of a mile from Sloss mines. Jones responded to repeated knocks on the door and invited Manning in; the rest remaining at the gate. At the door he asked Manning for a match, and got one. After his lamp was lit Manning said: Well, Sandy, I want you.”
“No you don’t responded the Negro, and he grabbed a Winchester lying near and fired twice at the officer in a second’s time. The first shot missed the mark, but the second struck manning in the heart. He staggered out towards the door and fired twice. He then fell down, saying:
“Boys, I’m dead.” And died.

The Negro then stuck the muzzle of his rifle about six inches out of the door and fired four times at the three officers standing outside. The officers returned the fire and ran around the back way to shoot the Negro from that side. While they were going around the house the Negro dashed out of the front door rifle in hand and escaped almost before they knew it.

Searching parties were organized and searched the mountain fastnesses but no trace of the fugitive could be found.

The body of the murdered man was carried to the city jail. He was 30 years old, unmarried and came from Cullman. He had been on the force about eighteen months.

The Negro had been employed at Sloss mines for several years, and has frequently been in trouble before. He was five feet, six inches high, a ginger cake color and weighed about 160 pounds.

The Marshal received information yesterday morning that the Negro had been seen going in the direction of Sloss mines, but the authority is not reliable.

John R. Manning

The news of the death of John R. Manning at Bessemer, last Friday night at the hands of Sandy Jones, a negro desperado, Carried sorrow to the hearts of a large circle of friends in this county where he was born and raised to manhood.

He was the son of the late Andrew J. manning, and his aged mother and several devoted brothers and sisters live to mourn his untimely death.

His remains were brought to Hanceville last Sunday and carried to his mothers place, some four miles distant, and on Monday were conveyed to Hopewell church for burial.

There were over three hundred persons at his funeral, which was conducted in a most impressive manner by the pastor Elder C. A. Owen.

Tears flowed from stout hearted men and sympathetic women as the narative was told of his taking off by the eloquent and feeling pastor, who was closely allied to the deceased by personalities.

John R. Manning was about 26 years of age, a man of generous impulses and greatly beloved by his companions and neighbors, who turned out en masse to pay respect to his memory.

As a friend he was true and confiding, as an officer in the discharge of his duty he was bold and fearless, In his dealings he was truthful and honest his family have the sympathies of all who know them.

Indecision Is Death To Our Troops!

What is your problem President Obama?

war

Do you not understand what your role as commander in chief is? That means you call the shots involving any military decision. Why do you announce a strategy for Afghanistan way back in March of this year and here we are eight months later with our soldiers spinning in the sand in harm’s way while you are playing golf, running off to Copenhagen to give a sales pitch for the Olympics and playing backyard basketball with your boys? In case you are too busy trying to promote legislation on health care which will destroy our economy while creating a world record national deficit on top of an out of control spending spree, our children are dying in Afghanistan daily. Your very own hand picked General which you avoid as if he has the H1N1 flu has made it very clear that in order to win this war and implement the strategy your administration has developed, you must send in the requested troop build up now! Hell President, send twice the amount of troops if it will help keep our soldiers there safe. This is not about politics and standing in the spotlight. You need to make a decision right this minute to send the troops or bring them back home now. Your weakness of indecision has reverberated across the globe to every possible enemy against the United States of America and if that doesn’t bother you maybe the fact that your inability to make the call is costing us the lives of our children. If not, then maybe your words in your biography about you siding with the Muslims are true. Man up Mr. President and send the troops or bring them home until we can replace you with a real Commander in Chief.

Fool Me Once, Shame On You! Fool Me Twice, Shame On Me!


It is the next morning and no doubt the shock waves continue to roll through Washington from Ground-Zero’s New Jersey and Virginia leaving the Dem’s with a mighty headache and terrible heartburn. Their “Hope” of Superstar Obama casting the radiance of his Hollywood charm upon the blue States of New Jersey and Virginia causing the voters to march in mind numbed lockstep with the big tent party towards their goal of government run health care, private industry takeovers, stimulus pay offs, A.C.O.R.N. voter fraud and imaginary job creations. Instead, the voters of these States marched to the polls and demanded another change. Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me! The tax payers are very quick learners. It doesn’t take a genius to take a good look around you and see that your friends and family are still unemployed and looking for a lifeline in this horrible economy, even while being told by the White House how many jobs were saved and created. They also were quick with figuring out that when the jackass is in power instead of the elephant there is much left of the take home pay to make ends meet with. To the average hard working tax payer there really isn’t much left over. For quite a lot, there isn’t enough to start with. The Dem’s scream and shout about the evils of corporate America and taxing the rich to solve the countries problems while the middle class continues on paying outrageous taxes only to have their taxes raised again. As if that isn’t enough all the President and Congress can talk about is how they want to take your health insurance away and take control of your health care via the government bureaucrats. And of course the tax payers believe it won’t cost them not one dime extra. Well I assure you; those in New Jersey and Virginia do not buy that line either! The Democrat’s will posture and pretend yesterday’s elections do not affect their party because that is the arrogance of their ways. They are too high-minded and above the voters message that was shouted from the polls yesterday to admit that the American people simply do not like the policies coming from this administration, nor the shell game method of what they will allow the American public to know about their policies. The American voters in New Jersey and Virginia declared “You are fired!” and as the rest of the moderate to conservative States, they are very impatiently waiting for the next opportunity to fire the rest.
Contact your Representative in Congress now and let them know they face the same fate!

The Latest Gun Control Attempt

Senator Frank Lautenberg D-NJ finds it necessary once again to limit American’s access to purchasing firearms by proposing legislation to close loopholes which allow Gun Shows to sell guns without a background check on the buyers and to provide certain information related to the weapon sold. The proposed legislation appears noble at a glance until you consider a few things. Anyone who is familiar with the 2nd Amendment which states

(Infringed- vb [Latin infringer] 1: Violate, Transgress 2: encroach, trespass.)

” A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Does this legislation encroach on the rights of law abiding citizen’s? I believe it does. The whole point of this proposal according to Senator Lautenberg is to keep American’s safer from Terrorist and Felonious Criminals. ]

[WASHINGTON, DC – Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), the author of legislation to close the gun show loophole, today applauded a City of New York investigation that exposed overwhelming evidence that criminals and terrorists can easily access firearms at gun shows.]

” This investigation reveals how easy it is for criminals and even terrorists to purchase firearms at gun shows and is further proof that we must close the gun show loophole,” stated Sen. Lautenberg. “It will be clear to anybody who reads this report that we have an urgent need and responsibility to require a background check for every gun purchased at every gun show. Closing this dangerous loophole is plain common sense that will make our communities and our country safer.”

But the Senator is assuming that Gun Shows are the only way criminals and terrorist are able to get firearms. Does he not realize that homes and vehicles are burglarized daily in which firearms are stolen by criminals and sold on the streets? What about illegal or stolen weapons that is imported into the United States via our open borders and other simple means?

One more serious question I have is where is the probable cause to restrict the sale or purchase of weapons of those who are buying and selling and are law abiding without violating any laws? Is this profiling? Are they suggesting that all involved in buying and selling firearms at a gun show a part of some criminal element? What about firearms bought and sold via the internet and classified ads?

“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. “My legislation would require background checks for every gun purchased at every gun show across America and would help keep guns out of the hands of criminals. Without this change in the law, anyone – from felons to terrorists to fugitives – can buy a gun at a gun show, no questions asked. That needs to change.” Senator Frank Lautenberg

I believe all gun control laws are ineffective. The only people who are ever inconvenienced by them are law abiding citizen’s who wish to own a firearm for their own personal protection. The criminals just simply don’t care if they are illegal or not. A criminal violates all laws. They never have difficulty in obtaining a firearm. Did you know that guns are banned in China and yet they are experiencing a rising problem in China with gun violence?

“With the convenient communication and exchange with the outside world, criminals have more channels to access guns. It’s difficult for us to plug all the channels,” he said.”

I believe Senator Frank Lautenberg’s agenda to restrict law abiding citizens ability to purchase guns at a gun show is simply another attack on law abiding citizen’s right to keep and bear arms. Why don’t this Senator and the rest of the Senators who hate guns and gun owners find ways to cut off access to this country at its borders and focus on the real threats to this country? Why don’t they propose much stronger mandatory sentencing for criminals violating Gun Violence Laws and committing crimes with them and leave the law abiding citizen alone?
