Letter from the DCCC: Democratic Corrupt Cronies and Crooks?



Cloudy

I’m not sure why the DCCC decided that their best way to raise campaign money was through attacking Glenn Beck, but that is what they did. I received the following letter (in green) from the DCCC.

Clear

I am well aware of my convictions and beliefs, and sent this reply to the DCCC.

Carol --


Glenn Beck.

Just writing those two words side by side sends a cold chill up my spine. He's the guy that's been riling up all those tea partying, town hall hollering, Obama birth certificate denying fools on the right-wing.


I happen to be a tea-partying, town-hall-attending, Obama-past-records of all kinds questioning citizen who exercises my First Amendment rights. I also happen to watch Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. And I listen to Mark Levin, Neal Boortz and Rush Limbaugh. As much as I know the liberals would like for all American citizens to become their docile, obedient sheep, I am not. I do as Neal Boortz cautions us to do. I check out the stories I hear and see and find other points of view. I do as Glenn Beck advocates. I ask bold questions on Twitter and Facebook and my blog. I follow the White House, Obama, and most of the official democratic organizations on Twitter. I get official notices from such groups on Facebook. I am an intelligent, well-educated and wise American citizen who cared deeply for my liberties and the Constitution and who does not follow conservatives or liberals without great deliberation and consideration.

Last week I called him 'nuts' on television but I'm afraid all I did was give nuts a bad name.


Let’s take a close look at this man you call a “nut.” We don’t shout that Obama isn’t an American citizen, We just have to wonder why he doesn’t put up either a birth certificate or Passport or school scholarship records to shut this controversy down. If Van Jones wasn’t a Communist or a “truther,” why didn’t the President back his appointee and keep him on? If the “snitch” email to the White House hadn’t been unconstitutional and unethical, why was it removed? If the lesson plans from the US Department of Education wasn’t meant to indoctrinate, why were they changed? If Yosi Sergant wasn’t acting unethically to use NEA funds to solicit propaganda and/or campaign artwork, why was he removed from his position? If Mark Lloyd isn’t a radical, why does he praise Chavez? If Anita Dunn isn’t a radical, why does she praise Mao? If Kevin Jennings isn’t immoral, vile, and perverted why would he support pedophilia? If ACORN wasn’t a corrupt organization with questionable fiscal activity, why did the IRS, the Census Bureau and Congress disassociate from them so quickly? Glenn Beck isn’t nuts. Our president is CRAZY for thinking that we wouldn’t notice that the appointees to his shadow government that writes policy and circumvents the Constitution is trying to “nudge” us (ala Sunstein) towards socialism.

I wish I could repeat some of the other names that our great DCCC supporters had for Beck in those petitions you signed, but we have to keep these e-mails G-rated.


First, I didn’t sign your petitions. I merely subscribe to your services so that I can “know my enemy.” And, were the names your great DCCC supporters had for Beck anything like: “un-American,” “anti-American,” “swastika-wearing,” “racists,” “Astroturf,” “thugs,” or, to quote you, “tea partying, town hall hollering, Obama birth certificate denying fools on the right-wing?”

Obama himself was the first person during the time of his administration to play the “race card” when he wrongly accused Cambridge police for racial profiling. Nancy Pelosi was the first person during this administration to refer to Nazis when she falsely accused Americans who were exercising their rights by questioning their elected representatives of wearing swastikas. Not a single picture could be produced that day of a single attendee wearing a swastika or carrying a Hitler or Joker sign. After her comment, however, (and perhaps thanks to her suggestion) the signs and symbols were evident the next day. The SEIU were the “thugs” at these meetings that beat up un-armed, well-meaning, peacefully assembling citizens. Perhaps our President and Speaker of the House doesn’t believe that a truly grass-roots movement is possible, since they are so used to funding and orchestrating SEIU , ACORN, children in the crowd, and fake doctors in distributed lab coats to rally for their causes. Some people rally because they believe in right. Some people march because they believe in justice. Some people question with boldness because it is their DUTY as a citizen in a Republic where the government is “of the people.”

Thank God we have committed supporters like you who defend President Obama from the attacks by Glenn Beck and his crazy ilk. And since you have the President's back, I wanted to make sure you don't miss out on your chance to join President Obama for dinner later this month.


Thank God you have informed citizens in America, who read and listen and pay attention to what is going on in DC. We wish it was an easier task. We wish the President would actually keep at least ONE of his promises and give us a transparent government. Nancy Pelosi also vowed to conduct House business in an unprecedented, transparent way. But, not only is debate not on CSPAN, it is behind closed doors. Not only are bills not online for our perusal, but they are voted on before our Congressmen read them, before they are put into legislative language and before they can be adequately scored in their final form by the Congressional Budget Office. Not only did Pelosi push for a pre-mature vote on Cap and Trade, but she offered “pork” to those few she needed to change their votes, and they caved (we hope with a sense of severe shame). Not only have Congressmen admitted that they don’t have time to read the bills, but they voted against a recommendation to wait 72 hours for a vote so that they would have time!

Contribute $5, $10 or more today and you and a guest will be automatically entered for a chance to win dinner with President Obama in Miami, Florida on October 26. Your hotel, airfare, and tickets are all included.


I’ll pass on your generous offer to send you money and “gamble” on a chance to have dinner with the President. I need that $5 to help feed my family. Vegetables are increasing in price since you favor the environment over the people that live in it. Tax increases, the failed economy and supporting your ever-growing federal government with my money are making it more difficult to put food on my own table. I doubt that you are going to work very hard to fix that, even though a vast majority of our citizens believe that the economy, NOT healthcare, should be “job one” for the government. We know that you all hope to completely wreck the economy so that you can then take over and provide for us as a truly socialist society. We’ll fight that. We’ll “holler” louder than you can imagine.

With media cheerleaders like Glenn Beck egging on the Sarah Palin-Michele Bachmann crowd of wing-nuts in the GOP spreading bizarre conspiracy theories about government death panels, FEMA concentration camps and the like, we need your support more than ever.


Once again, you’re hypocrisy is showing. NEVER let us see another criticism of a Tea Party sign after all of the names you have hurled at us in this one letter. “Wing-nuts?” It was our President himself that told Jane Sturm that her aging mother wouldn’t deserve expensive medical treatment when she could be given a pill to keep her comfortable until she died. And, it is a well-known fact that with a simple executive order, martial law can be forced upon us and FEMA can be given the power to incarcerate citizens. Is that as abusive as sending poor people miles away from the University of Chicago Hospital’s emergency room to receive care in a small neighborhood clinic just because you don’t have insurance? Michelle Obama got rich doing this. (The President never mentions Dontae Adams when he gives personal stories about poor health care in America. Dontae had his lip bitten off by a pit bull and was given Tylenol, a Band-Aid, and instructions to go to another clinic ala Michelle Obama’s Health Care Initiative.)

President Obama and the Democratic Party are fighting for our future and the commitment of Democrats like you is the key ingredient to our success.

So, make a contribution of $5, $10 or more today. And, when you do, you and a guest will be automatically entered for a chance to win dinner with President Obama in Miami, Florida on October 26. Your hotel, airfare, and tickets are all included.

Your contribution will be put to work fighting for the change you and I voted for last November. Thank you for your generous support.

I didn’t vote for him then. I won’t vote for him in the future.

Sincerely,


James Carville

Helping Out, Bailing Out or Buying Off the Seniors?


Cloudy

Since the cost of living hasn’t gone up, there will be no increase in Social Security amounts for the nation’s senior citizens and disabled. The Obama administration is considering sending each of them a “stimulus” check for $250, at a cost to the nation of $13 billion.

I’m wondering if that $13 billion price tag to the nation is worth the benefits that $250 will glean. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not objecting to helping out people who have seen the benefits of a long life of work and contribution to the Social Security system disappear to past thieves in Congress. I’m just wondering if that little bit of money will really make a difference in the quality of their lives!

A quick search for goods and services showed me that $250 will buy or do ONE of the following:

2 suits at JC Penney

1 skirt, 1 pants, 1 shirt, and a boss belt at JCrew

1 month of groceries, IF you live alone without pets and don’t need laundry supplies

1 swivel bar stool

1 pound puppy and crate, but no vet care or Puppy Chow

1 well check up at the doctor. (Get this while we still have a good supply of them!)

1 one-way drive from Atlanta to Salt Lake City (w/o food or hotel)

50 trips across town if you live in Birmingham or a city of that size

Dinner for two at Per Se in NYC (cab fare and tip not included)

½ of a mortgage or rent payment

2 cartons of cigarettes

5 weeks of nightly toddies at home for 2

4 trips to the hairdresser

2 new tires for the car

1 airline ticket across country IF you don’t bring luggage or a coat

5 decent Christmas/birthday gifts (2 if you are buying for a teenager)

$13 interest if you put the money in a savings account


Clear

What it REALLY buys, or at least what the Democrats are hoping for, is votes in the upcoming election. They are hoping our seniors will remember the check and not be aware, yet, of the drastic cuts that will be coming in their Medicare.

Anita Dunn: Communist Witch Leading the Witch Hunt?


Clear

Anita Dunn and the White House have pledged to push back and stop news stories that are either inaccurate or unflattering. She has said that, “Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party. And it is not ideological.” Furthermore, she said, “let's not pretend they're a news organization like CNN is."

Obviously, her stance ruffled some feathers. It is one thing to fight inaccuracies in the news, it is something altogether different to fight unflattering references. (The WASHINGTON POST ran a very flattering fluff piece on Ms. Dunn today, by the way, in the Style Section.)

She was also exposed by Glenn Beck today for a speech she made to high school students in which she praised her “two favorite political philosophers,” Mao Zedong (Tse-tung) and Mother Teresa. This statement raises serious questions!

Cloudy

First of all, why is she calling Mother Teresa a “political philosopher,” and why would she, a liberal, favor her? Mother Teresa was a humble servant of God who spoke against abortion, even for the poverty-stricken women to whom she dedicated her life in Calcutta.

Mao, on the other hand, was a political philosopher of the vilest nature. He founded the People’s Republic of China, but his process for doing so included genocide and starvation, the result of which was at least 48 million dead at his hand or because of his “philosophies.”

So, again, we have to ask, “Why?” Why does Obama constantly surround himself with people who admire the very people who would be our enemies? Why does he surround himself with Communist-loving and Marxist-thinking advisors that bring a radical Socialist agenda to the table for America?

Hopefully, with these revelations, we will soon sing, “Ding dong, the Witch is Dead!"

Volunteers "Forced" into Service?


Cloudy

Most of the major networks are planning a barrage of advertising and show content during the third full week in October to push for one of President Obama’s community organizing schemes, public service. I know there is nothing inherently wrong with public service and volunteerism. However, I know the protests over this will be about the same, if not worse, than Obama’s plan to speak to the nation’s school children. You will either hear about or be a part of yet another national outcry. Why would there be any objection to volunteer work to help others? Why would anyone object to television commercials that encourage that?

Clear

There is a myriad of “reasons,” most of which liberals will just scream are “excuses,” and most of them have nothing to do with public service.

First, it’s the idea of control. This White House is getting too intrusive into the daily lives of Americans. The Czars and advisors, especially those environmentalists who seem to hate the fact that the earth is populated with humans, want to force us into electric cars (that need burning coal to recharge), give up farmland in favor of bait fish (farmland that could support wind or solar farms instead of people and vegetables), and even take away our plush toilet paper and force more expensive, more energy-consumptive, rough and non-absorptive paper to chap our buns to save the old growth trees (in a country with more trees than we had 100 years ago).

Second, there is the idea of indoctrination. On the heels of hearing school children singing the praises of Barrack Hussein Obama instead of America (a trend that surfaces in almost every speech that the President himself gives, particularly before foreign audiences), people will be further enraged. On the heels of watching Aston Kutcher and Demi Moore “pledge allegiance” to Obama and the tatted thug-looking Chili Pepper kiss himself in praise of Obama, people will resist. The “school house stand” of conservatives was not about a speech, it was about the message that their children would be asked to praise the MAN in the same way that the National Endowments of the Arts, using tax money, has been recruiting artists to glorify the MAN. Not the office. Not the country. The MAN.

Third, there is the idea of unholy betrayal. There was the disappointment that the President did not honor the National Day of Prayer, but did honor the Red Chinese anniversary and hosted Muslim prayer in our nation’s capital. There was the dismay that the President painted a house on 9-11, a day when the names of the dead were being called out and honored in prayer, while he has embraced the sworn enemies that were supportive of that very holocaust. There is the criticism that he sat for years to listen to a minister preach, “God Damn America,” and then appointed a pedophilic School Safety Czar who said, “F—K God!”

Fourth, there is the idea that our administration does not honor the Constitution or the Bill of Rights. The White House acts to stomp out the First Amendment. They tried to stop e-mailers and bloggers with their “snitch” and “flag” mail. They tried to commandeer the computers of people logging onto “clunker” sites. They are collecting data on everyone who taps into any social network connected to the White House, including those that exercise their right to write to the President of the United States. They have threatened to eliminate conservative talk radio and are now beginning a witch hunt to quiet and denigrate Fox News because that station calls them out on almost every issue that has been listed on this page.

And last, there is the idea that Obama’s “fundamental change for America” equates to producing a socialist nation that will adopt a declaration of “dependence.” We know now that he ran for office with the intent and purpose of destroying our liberties to provide us with the security of a “nanny nation” that can “better” make decisions for us. We know now of how corrupt several of the community organizing groups with which he worked were, which is why very few trusted that the Olympics in Chicago wouldn’t become but another slush fund for the elite. We know now that they want to redistribute the wealth by letting the powerful make every decision over what resources we will have any access to as they control all of the purse strings. We know now how all too many of the people around our President, put there at his request, are Communists, Marxists, Socialists and radicals with beliefs that border on zoophilia, eugenics, euthanasia, and social engineering.

Yes, there will be an outcry over network programming next week. There will be a boycott. But, it won’t be about volunteer service. These people are already involved in Boys and Girl Scouts. They are already teaching Sunday School classes and helping with Vacation Bible School. They are already pitching in at senior centers, driving for Meals on Wheels or serving mission meals , contributing to charities, and lending a hand to neighbors. They are already building habitats for humanity, planting and maintaining inner-city gardens and green spaces, and guiding tours in museums, parks and public landmarks. They are already collecting in their neighborhoods for The March of Dimes, opening their homes to people and animals in need of care, cleaning their adopted mile of highway or waterway and contributing their time and talents to enrich the lives of others. These are the people who don’t need to be, or want to be, indoctrinated into doing or believing anything other than goodness and mercy, freedom and liberty. And they will unite when they think their beliefs are in jeopardy.

If you don’t see this next week, you’ll see it next November.

Stop the Presses! Stop Fox News!


Clear

I know what the First Amendment says, and I support it as one of the most precious, most reverent and most important dictate of our liberties and rights:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Cloudy

What I don’t understand is why our current administration thumbs its nose at our First Amendment rights. The latest incident was the announcement by Anita Dunn, the interim White House Communications Director, who stated to CNN, to TIME magazine and to the NEW YORK TIMES, that Fox News is war-mongering against the President. Dunn denounced Fox News as "opinion journalism masquerading as news." Furthermore, she said that Fox, “often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party." "We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.” “As they are undertaking a war against Barack Obama and the White House, we don’t need to pretend that this is the way that legitimate news organizations behave," she said.

This comes on the heels of three significant current events.

First, Saturday Night Live finally presented a skit that dared to criticize President Obama for doing “nothing!” Bear in mind that NBC is owned by GE who stands to make millions off of the Cap and Trade bill should it pass. GE was also a major contributor to Obama’s presidential campaign. This network has supported everything from the campaign to the White House dog choice to Michelle’s buff arms. The mainstream news, or “fringe news” as they have now become, have slobbered over, genuflected before and worshipped at the altar of THE ONE.

Second, Fox News has surpassed every other news station and news show in the national ratings. It is watched by liberals and conservatives, by people of all races and creeds, and is growing daily in popularity. During the day, the programs adhere to the slogan, “We report. You decide.” In the evening, however, Fox airs opinion shows that, like Sean Hannity, usually have a conservative slant. However, recently we witnessed Shepard Smith in a semi-rant supporting ObamaCare and Bill O’Reilly tends to stay somewhere near the middle as he loves to play the devil’s advocate. Glenn Beck brings us the “fusion of entertainment and enlightenment.” And, sprinkled throughout the day are guests and panels from every walk of life and every political leaning as on Hannity’s Great Star Team, Bret’s All American Panel, and intelligent people like Star Parker, Juan Williams, Michelle Malkin, Rev. Stephen Broden, credible judges and lawyers, a variety of Democrat and Republican Representatives and Senators, and former White House staff members from the past several administrations. They seem to gather everyone to share opinions except the President himself. He refuses. And, when the Fox anchors have exposed corruption in the administration, the President has remained silent and not even come to the defense of those that he selected and then allowed to go.

Now, if you want to discuss slanted news, please remember that ABC allowed the President to air an expensive and polished propaganda-like hour of an “infomercial” for ObamaCare, while denying the Republican Party the right to even air contradictory commercials. So, Ms. Dunn, no more accusations about another network being PRO-Republican, please!

The third event that lead up to this tirade against Fox news was that the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to President Obama. This left Democrats and Republicans; liberal and conservatives; independents and Libertarians; Christians and atheists; adults and children; pet owners and pets; in other words, EVERYONE in America; asking the same question: “For WHAT?” He has not supported troops in Afghanistan, he has not closed Gitmo, and he has not done anything on the international scene except deface America’s greatness in the same way that thugs deface monuments with their spray paint cans. Even the president admitted that he has done nothing to deserve this recognition. Since Obama had no answer, it would behoove the White House staff to do something to show his worth.

My father once taught me a great lesson. He told me that basically all people want to feel good about themselves and want to feel more important in some way than others. It is part of human nature to want to be special. He explained that there are two ways to achieve that goal. The difficult way is to work hard, get a good education, improve ourselves, and constantly try to achieve the high goals that we set. The other way is easy. You merely sit back, call other people names and slap them down so that you can pretend to tread on them and make believe that you tower above them.

The White House may be taking that second, low road. Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, said the White House may be lashing out at Fox "because the Democratic base is starting to be more critical of Obama.”

I’m reporting. You decide.

Differences Between Conservatives and Liberals


Click on cartoon to enlarge.

Clear

Anyone out there still unsure about what conservatives and liberals believe? Neal Boortz shared some very clear and humorous guidelines last week:

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn`t buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy.
A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a black or Hispanic is conservative, he sees himself as independently successful.
Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders how his governement is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced, unless it's a foreign religion, of course!

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed.
If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues.

If a conservative reads this, he'll copy it to his friends so they can have a
good laugh. A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

I hope you are smiling!

Late Night Fodder: Obama's Nobel Peace Prize

video
Cloudy

Amid the gasps and head-scratching, the last few days have been a barrage of Obama jokes about the Nobel Peace Prize that, amazingly, even Obama himself admitted was undeserved.

Clear

It's been great fun for people and terrific fodder for the late night hosts! Here's a sampling to enjoy.

Tweet: Humor Czar condemns Nobel Prize jokes.

Rush Limbaugh: I don’t believe this! He’s not only the first post-racial president; he’s also the first post-accomplishment.

Tweet: Just wait until Obama wins American Idol before the new season even starts!

Jay Leno: Ironically, his biggest accomplishment as president so far: winning the Nobel Peace Prize!

Tweet: Obama stripped of Nobel Prize for using Performance Enhancing Teleprompter.

Bill Maher: Conservatives say the award represents everything they stand against: black people, foreigners, and peace.

Tweet: I've read about the other nominees. So it looks like actually doing something knocks you out of the top spot.

Jay Leno: The Nobel committee said they wanted to recognize the president's fine work in bringing peace to a black professor and a white cop through the strategic use of beer.

Tweet: Why didn't Obama win the Nobel Prize for Literature? Answer: He actually wrote 2 books.

Conan O'Brien: The committee said they gave it to Obama partly for his idealism and commitment to global cooperation, but mostly for calling Kanye West a jackass.

Tweet: If you hear rumors of an Obama accomplishment, report it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

Seth Meyers: In a surprise decision, President Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Friday. In other premature awards this week: high school football player Billy Reynolds has been named this year's Heisman Trophy winner; fifth grader Amber Collins has been named Miss America; and nine-year-old Dylan Holt has been named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive.

Conan O'Brien presented a list of the other awards Obama received on Friday:
Oscar for Best Cinematography 2009
Cy Young Award
International Air Guitar Championship
Winner, Ernest Hemingway Look-a-Like Contest
Best in Show, Westminster Dog Show
Blue Ribbon at the Texas State Fair for Best Corn Relish
World's Best Grandma

Tweet: Obama’s lesson to children: Success is 99 percent aspiration and 1 percent perspiration.

X-Rated Public Schools

video
ALERT: This blog will not be pleasant to read, but the truth must be told.

Clear

President Obama has appointed yet another radical Czar to help in his attempt to circumvent the powers of Congress. The Safe School Czar, Kevin Jennings, is a homosexual, the founder of GLSEN (the Gay-Lesbian-Straight Education Network) and an advocate for NAMBLA (the North American Man/Boy Love Association). Both of these organizations claim to exist to combat intolerance and ignorance about alternate lifestyles, including cross-dressing as shown in the above video being played in California public schools.

Cloudy

What I don’t understand is why someone did not “google” this man before he was nominated for a position that will influence our young school children! As it turns out, NAMBLA is involved in attempts to legalizing pedophilia and serves as a forum for men to share information about finding young boys upon which to prey. They want the statutory rape offense dropped for sex between men and minor boys. Jennings has championed NAMBLA’S causes for many years, and, in the forward that he wrote for the book, QUEERING ELEMENTARY EDUCATION, he advocates an aggressive homosexual agenda.

How aggressive? When his organization GLSEN sponsored a conference for preteens and teens, adult gay men (Massachusetts state employees) led group discussions with the young boys to describe various techniques used by homosexual partners. These discussions included a sadomasochistic practice called fisting, which is inserting one’s entire fist in the rectum of a sex partner. One state worker explained fisting to the youngsters as the “satisfying experience of letting someone into your body that you want to be that close and intimate with...[and] to put you into an exploratory mode." The “TeachOUT” conference, co-sponsored by the state education department, led to a great deal of criticism from the Christian community. When subjected to their outrage over the “fistgate” scandal, Jennings response was, “F—k god!”

Teachers have expressed concern over the curriculum, too. Many object to the fact that they are expected to teach that these alternate lifestyles are “normal” and “moral, “ knowing that many parents do not believe this. Others have questioned the new policy because it contradicts the “safe sex and abstinence” curricula that have helped reduce HIV and STDs.

How did such a disgustingly immoral man find his way into the White House? He has admitted to counseling one of his minor students to “use a condom” when having sex with older men, instead of reporting the child abuse and pedophilia to the proper authorities as required by law. He has also stated, "Killing someone who calls you a faggot is not aberrant behavior but merely the most extreme expression of a belief that is beaten (sometimes literally) into boys at an early age in this country: Be a man – don’t be a faggot."

A simple web search reveals all of this, as a simple web search would have exposed Van Jones as a self-avowed Communist and “truther.” Does Obama have no shame? Would he invite Kelly Trueman for a sleep-over with his daughters?

Mendacity, Audacity and Disdain


Clear
“The truest characters of ignorance are vanity, and pride and arrogance.” Samuel Butler

Arrogance is a double pity, because the talents of the arrogant serve primarily themselves when others could benefit. The arrogant will see no weakness in themselves and may secretly rejoice in the flaws they see in others. But imperfections are a part of being human, so the arrogant, like everyone else, always have feet of clay, however well hidden they may be. Fearing exposure, the arrogant don masks and adopt accusing rhetoric to hide their own insecurities, ignorance and emptiness. Rather than offering respect to all, arrogance demands respect from all.

Arrogance also angers others, who become the targets of the haughty. Instead of working hard to feel good about themselves and to rise above the crowd, the arrogant usually slam others down with lies, false accusations or by minimizing their worth. Then the arrogant have the audacity to bask in the glory of being “over” the ones upon which they tread.

Cloudy

What makes a person arrogant? Why do people who could, and do, make contributions to society take this low road? Who are the arrogant people around us that selfishly promote themselves?

Democrats for years glorified the murderer, Ted Kennedy.

Charlie Rangel and Tim Geithner, both in positions to make tax policy and law, have cheated on their own income tax returns.

Bill Clinton actually had the nerve to try to make America believe that oral sex wasn’t a “real” sex act. (Unfortunately, now the majority of teens in America have bought into that idea.)

Robert Gibbs lied to the press about the President attending a Bilderberg Meeting. (This is the super wealthy group that seeks a New World Order of redistributive wealth…except for theirs.)

Dan Rather knowingly used forged documents to bash George W. Bush’s National Guard record, then sued to get his job back.

ACORN, caught red-handed in fraud, blames the investigative reporters for entrapment. Of course, that didn’t keep them from firing the workers that had been “entrapped.” ACORN and the SEIU both forced banks into providing loans to people who could not afford to repay them, thus collapsing the housing market.

Congress, knowing Americans need jobs and a way to keep their homes, give money to those who contribute, increase debt and try to force expensive health care renovation instead of just making Medicare efficient.

And, even more outrageous and disrespectful to us and the Constitution, Max Baucus and his committee have sent the health care bill to the budget office in “conceptual language” instead of finishing the bill and including the “fine print.” Their transparency mirrors their leader’s.

Nancy Pelosi was the first to sling mud over town hall meetings and Tea Parties, and then cried over the anger that she created. The Bible verse that she always quotes for every occasion is one that she just made up! And with that, she ranks herself with the truly holy ones!

Barney Frank thumbed his nose at his constituent’s “ignorance” and “stupidity” by saying he was arguing with a dining room table!

Our lawmakers, wanting to have complete control OVER us instead of SERVING us, have refused to put bills online for our scrutiny and feel they are so intelligent and astute that they can vote without reading bills.

Katie Couric slammed Sarah Palin into the pavement with unbridled glee and satisfaction.

Kevin Jennings, after a lifetime of pushing for homosexual education in schools, has now changed his story about giving inappropriate sexual advice to a minor.

Mark Lloyd dared to look America in the face and announce that the First Amendment is overrated and he wants to shut down talk radio.

Van Jones smugly referred to Republicans as “assholes” and accused whites of purposefully contaminating blacks with toxic pollution and then explains that toxins in the air and water and go into every nook and cranny of the environment.

John Holdren believes he should have the right, as a superior being, to determine who should reproduce! His ideas include forcing single women to abort their babies, implanting sterilizing capsules in people when they reach puberty, and spiking water reserves and foods with contraceptives.

Cass Sunstein thinks that the masses are so ignorant that you can just nudge and nudge them into whatever life style you want them to have or into compliance with any policy that you want to pass. In order to “force” us to become vegetarians, he’ll just slowing increase the taxes on ranchers and the price of meat, until no one can afford to buy it.

David Letterman expects the world to accept his lecherous behavior; and many in his industry will support it just as Whoopie Goldberg supported Roman Polanski’s rape, but not rape-rape, of a minor child.

Susan Sarandon, in comparing Obama to Palin said in an overtly condescending manner, "Jesus Christ was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was a governor."

Michelle Obama praised local farmers’ markets while supporting legislation that is turning thousands of acres of California’s San Joaquin Valley farmland into desert and forcing hundreds of farmers onto welfare rolls. Her disdain for the poor and her arrogance drove her to promote the Chicago Health Initiative that allowed the University of Chicago Hospital to treat only those with insurance, while forcing the poor to other clinics. Just recently, she lied before an international committee about “sitting in her father’s lap” while she watched Carl Lewis in the Olympics.
But, there is no one in the land who is more arrogant or more of an accomplished liar than Barrack Obama. He promised transparency while refusing to produce documents from his past and misleading us on every front. He lied to the international group of G20 leaders, claiming that his administration has done more for the environment than any other period in our history. He believes in his own superiority so much that he feels he must share his words and face with us almost every single day as he hogs TV time. He is disgusted with the racial comments about him and his administration, but HE was the one that first played the race card over racial profiling by the Cambridge police. His agenda included an attempt to have both school children and NEA artists praise him, not his office, through their work.

And, all the while, he blames every negative comment, every failure and every shortcoming on the conditions he “inherited.”

According to Obama, "The biggest problems that we're facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that's what I intend to reverse when I'm president of the United States." Yes, with your Czars and transparency, by bailing out your friends, and marching us towards socialism.

Sex Education Field Trip...for Children?



Clear

That our young people need to know the "facts of life," I am in complete agreement. As a 30 year veteran high school biology teacher, sex education was a part of my curriculum every year. I was always grateful that it was the last thing on my agenda, for, while other teachers were dealing with student "burn out" during the last 2 weeks of school, I always had very attentive classes!

My curriculum consisted of anatomy, physiology and pathology. What are the organs for reproduction? What do these organs do and how? How does pregnancy occur? What are the events of fetal development? What diseases are associated with these organs. Again, like Sgt. Joe Friday, "Just the facts, ma'am."

I taught how the organs worked, but NEVER suggested how they should be used or with whom or how often or by what techniques. Sexuality was an issue I left for parents to discuss. I knew that I had gay and lesbian students in my classes, but by age 15 to 18, they knew it, too.

Cloudy

What I'm not sure of is how I would teach sex education to middle school or elementary kids. I must admit that I don't know, because I have no training for dealing with that age group and I haven't seen the curriculum. My own children told me about the separate sex HIV classes (they were system wide in the 80s), but they never told me if they had to demonstrate putting a condom on a cucumber.

I offer you this video, only to let you know what some others are doing to educate young people. This is a legitimate museum set up to teach youth about sex and sexual behaviors. Look at how young they are! I also think it is very obvious that this is a group, not individual kids with their parents.

I took my children to see the circus and the Impressionists.

Move Off Uncle Sam's Plantation: Star Parker

Cloudy

I have been extremely impressed with the work and words of Star Parker, yet I reviewed a video of the “ladies” on The View grilling her as though she was the lowest form of life. They questioned her, without allowing adequate time for her responses, on homosexuality, same sex marriage, abortion, birth control, and even evolution! Their disdain for her was vile. How could anyone with any sense not see how amazing Ms. Parker is? (Perhaps I just answered that question.)

Clear

Star Parker is a shining example of an American who fully understands the difference between liberty and security. She was a “secure” single mother on the welfare rolls of Los Angeles for years; working the system so that she didn’t have to work, feeding on liberal propaganda and food stamps, and letting a progressive “nanny” state provide for her family’s needs.

After accepting Christ, she not only found dignity for herself as she left what she called “Uncle Sam’s Plantation,” but she’s helped others do the same through CURE, the Coalition on Urban Renewal & Education, a 501c3 non-profit think tank she founded. CURE provides a national voice of reason on issues of race and poverty in the media, inner city neighborhoods, and public policy.

Star Parker's personal transformation from welfare fraud to conservative crusader has been chronicled by every major newspaper and news network, and she has written three books, "Pimps, Whores, and Welfare Brats" (1996), "Uncle Sam's Plantation" (2003), and "White Ghetto" (2006).

In reference to “Uncle Sam’s Plantation,” Parker said:
There are two Americas — a poor America on socialism and a wealthy America on capitalism.

I talked about government programs like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Training (JOBS), Emergency Assistance to Needy Families with Children (EANF), Section 8 Housing, and Food Stamps: a vast sea of perhaps well-intentioned government programs, all initially set into motion in the 1960s by Democrats, that were going to lift the nation’s poor out of poverty.

A benevolent Uncle Sam welcomed mostly poor black Americans onto the government plantation. Those who accepted the invitation switched mindsets from “How do I take care of myself?” to “What do I have to do to stay on the plantation?”

Instead of solving economic problems, government welfare socialism created monstrous moral and spiritual problems — the kind of problems that are inevitable when individuals turn responsibility for their lives over to others.

The legacy of American socialism is our blighted inner cities, dysfunctional inner city schools, and broken black families.

Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich American on capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming like poor America on socialism.

Uncle Sam has welcomed our banks onto the plantation and they have said, “Thank you, Suh.”

Now, instead of thinking about what creative things need to be done to serve customers, they are thinking about what they have to tell Massah in order to get their cash. Our corporate executives seem happy to move onto the plantation.

There is some kind of irony that this is all happening under our first black president on the 200th anniversary of the birthday of Abraham Lincoln.

She is not only critical of Obama’s strategy for America’s long-term growth and opportunity in areas such as renewable energy, healthcare, and education, but is amazed that he treats his own views as new. The idea that massive growth in government can take place “with unprecedented transparency and accountability” was offered by Presidents Johnson, Carter and Clinton as the education system was hijacked and a “war on poverty” was launched. Yet, trillions of dollars later, black poverty is the same. However, black families are not, as the number of single-parent homes and illegitimate births has tripled.

It’s not complicated. Americans can accept Barack Obama’s invitation to move onto the plantation. Or they can choose personal responsibility and freedom. This is not the freedom to be happy. It is the freedom to pursue happiness. This is not the freedom to realize the “great American dream.” It is the freedom to succeed, or perhaps fail, in attempts to realize it. It is the freedom to control our own destinies, to be an integral part of a democratic republic, to have a viable voice in government, and to demand that our elected officials work in accordance with our wishes as public servants. Our government is financially and morally bankrupt as a result of decades of Washington’s belief that they are our masters.

Take back your government. Become one of “We the People.” Let's end this plantation system.

God OUT. Deviant Sex IN. Education for Our Children



Cloudy

Can anyone tell me just what is going on? Have we all lost our minds? Has everyone in a decision-making position lost their moral compasses?

A judge sets a child molester free. Coaches face trial for saying grace. Peter Singer writes that sex with animals is fine as long as you don’t harm the animal, and his two disciples, Cass Sunstein and John Holdren are now making policy as part of Obama’s “out-sourced” government. Our school safety Czar is a sexual deviant who wrote, “Screw you, God!” and gave very inappropriate advice to his own minor gay student. The Pledge of Allegiance isn’t required in public schools. The ever-despicable David Letterman calls a child a slut, confesses to sexual misconduct at work, and keeps his job. A beauty queen is asked for her opinion, gives it as requested to her gay interrogator, and has to give up her position after the sissy-fit that followed. Christmas carols are outlawed in public schools. Whoopie, a heretofore beloved actress, stands up for Polanski who raped, but didn't "rape rape", a thirteen year old. Children are taught how to put condoms on vegetables in the classroom. And now we find out that our young people are not only being asked to be tolerant of different life styles, they are seeing movies that illustrate deviant sexual techniques and glorify cross-dressing.

Clear

The US Department of Education has ruined our schools. The entire department is unconstitutional, as education was meant to be, and should still be, the business of the states. But, I digress.

I agree with SEX education in schools. I believe that young people need to understand changes that occur in their bodies as they mature. I agree that young people need to know how pregnancy occurs. I am in total agreement with teaching about contraceptives, STDs and safe behaviors. There are many FACTS that everyone in a modern society should know. But, in the famous words of Joe Friday: “Just the facts, ma’am.”

I still have a term paper I did in the 7th grade on the Endocrine System. My teacher removed the two pages with descriptions and drawings of the testes and ovaries before he exhibited it for family night, but I learned a lot about the FACTS of life when I did the research.

SEXUALITY, however, is a whole other issue. Frank and candid discussions about deviant lifestyles may be fine for college classes, but not for public secondary schools, and certainly not for public elementary schools. There are about 40 books for children covering those topics in my small, local public library. I encourage parents who want their children to know about sexuality to seek out some of these sources to use as guidelines, as many have been authored by child physicians and child psychologists. If you think your child should be exposed, if you think your child is ready to learn, then it is certainly good for you to teach them at home. However, I don’t want teachers with gay, transgendered, or pedophilic agendas teaching my children about their sexual preferences any more than I want a Catholic, Muslim or Baptist pushing their religious preferences.

Yes. We need to raise children who are accepting of differences. Yes. We need to teach our children not only to tolerate, but to embrace differences, so that another generation of hate-mongers will not be roaming our streets. It has always confused me why we innately see differences as bad or evil, when no two humans are ever alike! Our diversity and variety is a wonderful thing. Each person has some unique gift to offer to others. These kinds of lessons, without any reference to sex, sexuality, creed, race, or religion, are perfectly acceptable lessons for any child to hear from any adult.

But I want to select the zucchini for my child’s show and tell.

Obamalympics: Fun 'n' Games!

(Image from Big D and Bubba)


Clear

To me, it was a no-brainer. Rio had the most compelling argument for hosting the games and had quite a contigency in Copenhagen. I was happy for them.

Cloudy

Is there anyway that we can still make the games, like everything else they speak of, all about the Obamas? Can we still have Obamalympics in Rio? Perhaps, if the IOC will adopt a few new games:

"Lie"crosse: Who can catch the most lies in Obama's speeches?

Field Hockey: How many CIA agents can be tanked in the field?

Gym"nasties": Who can insult more people than Nancy Pelosi?

Fencing: Can we all get "epee-epeed up"?

Diving: You're all wet, Obama!

Water Polo: Let's kick Poland's ass around the pool!

Triathlon: Lose the Olympics, the public option and allies! BUSTED!

Rugby: Wallow on the rug and pitch a hissy like Pelosi and Barney.

Feel free to add more!

Michelle Obama: PORK


(Image from Vogue)

Cloudy

MICHELLE OBAMA, the First Lady of the United States, has picked over tomatoes at a farmer’s market while miles and miles of the San Joaquin Valley in California dries up, blows away, and leaves families penniless.

The First Lady of the United States made a million dollar flight to fail at gaining Chicago an Olympic bid, but got rich and served that same city by forcing the poor and uninsured out of the emergency rooms of the University of Chicago hospital.

Just what is the function of the First Lady of the United States? Her staff is by far the biggest and most expensive ever (http://tinyurl.com/kkrytt) for any First Lady, and you can add in the expenses of the office space, the utilities, office supplies, and non-positioned staffers. What do they do?

Clear

Other First Ladies, love them or leave them, had causes. They didn’t give speeches to tell America or the world about themselves and their “sacrifices.” They didn’t make speeches to tell America or the world that they never valued being American until they were in their 40s. They showed America real hope and change. The money allotted for their offices was spent in a visible (dare we say, “TRANSPARENT”) way to help the masses.

JACQUELINE KENNEDY worked to restore the White House and preserve its heritage. She introduced all of America to the valuable artifacts that were there and the need to keep it for future generations.

ROSALYNN CARTER focused national attention on the performing arts and took a strong interest in programs to aid mental health, the community, and the elderly. From 1977 to 1978, she served as the Honorary Chairperson of the President's Commission on Mental Health.

NANCY REAGAN gave her support to the Foster Grandparent Program, the subject of her 1982 book, To Love A Child. Increasingly, she concentrated on the fight against drug and alcohol abuse among young people and started the “JUST SAY NO” campaign.

BARBARA BUSH worked for a more literate America. Involved with many organizations devoted to this cause, she became Honorary Chairman of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. We all remember her reading to children. She also supported programs to help the homeless, AIDS, the elderly, and school volunteer programs.

HILLIARY CLINTON served as a leading advocate for expanding health insurance coverage, ensuring children are properly immunized, and raising public awareness of health issues. She wrote a weekly newspaper column entitled "Talking It Over," which focused on her experiences as First Lady and her observations of women, children, and families she has met around the world. Her 1996 book It Takes a Village and Other Lessons Children Teach Us was a best seller, and she received a Grammy Award for her recording of it

LAURA BUSH was a key advocate of the President's historic education reform – the “No Child Left Behind” act – and a staunch supporter of NCLB's Reading First program, which is the largest early reading initiative in American history. Early in the President's first term, she launched "Ready to Read, Ready to Learn," an education initiative that promoted best practices in early childhood education and raised awareness of innovative teacher training programs. Inspired by her success with the Texas Book Festival, Mrs. Bush founded the National Book Festival to introduce tens of thousands of Americans to their favorite authors each year.

MICHELLE OBAMA shops at J Crew, has buff arms, picks good tomatoes, wears a yellow satin pillow case, is proud of America for the first time ever in her forties, and speaks of herself in Copenhagen. AWESOME!

The Constitutionality of Public Health Care


Cloudy

The debate over health care constantly takes on some new twists, as it is difficult to debate a bill that hasn’t yet reached its final form. But, because there are amendments being proposed daily, each new idea is scrutinized for its constitutionality. Questions arise such as:
• Does Federal Government have the power to make any decisions about health care?
• Is health care a constitutional right?
• Can a “Health Choices Commissioner” have any constitutional powers?
• Can illegal immigrants be denied any service offered to “everyone”?
• Can our government require anyone to purchase anything?

Clear

It seems clearer by the day that the Supreme Court will have to make some tough decisions about whatever plan is finally settled upon, if that day ever comes.

We’ll examine just one, the individual purchase mandate which would require every American to have health insurance, if not through an employer then by individual purchase. This requirement has not come up so much because of a desire to provide for the health and welfare of the young who opt out or the old who have limited income, but out of the need to help pay for the any final program. If it is not deficit neutral, President Obama has promised not to sign it. (And, of course, he always keeps his promises.)

But can Congress require every American to buy health insurance? NO. The Constitution assigns only limited, enumerated powers to Congress and none, including the power to regulate interstate commerce or to impose taxes, would support a federal mandate requiring anyone who is otherwise without health insurance to buy it.

The specific powers of Congress are:
• To lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises to pay debt and to provide for the common defense and general Welfare (all taxes to be uniform throughout the United States)
• To borrow money
• To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, among the States, and with Indian Tribes
• To establish uniform rules of Naturalization and Bankruptcies
• To coin and regulate the value of money, and fix the standard of Weights and Measures
• To punish counterfeiting of securities and money
• To establish post offices and post roads
• To protect science and arts with limited copyrights and patents,
• To establish courts inferior to the Supreme Court
• To define and punish piracy and offenses against the Law of Nations
• To declare War, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules about captures on land and water
• To raise and support armies, but no appropriation for that shall be for a term longer than two years
• To provide, train and maintain an army, navy, and militia, and the appointment of officers
• To establish a district to serve as the seat of the federal government (Washington, D.C.)
• To make all laws needed to execute these powers
• To admit new states into the Union if the states agree
• To rule and regulate Territories of the United States
• To tax incomes

Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Progressives of his time tried to establish “human rights” as “constitutional rights,” but they have failed to do so because they are clearly not part of the intentions of the founding fathers. It is not that the founding fathers didn’t believe in health and education, it is that they believed that ALL POWERS NOT LISTED BELONGED TO THE STATES.

Eleanor Roosevelt was successful in getting the UN to adopt a document of “human rights.” But, until the hearts of people are accepting of differences and greed and/or bigotry die, to provide human rights will always be a struggle on a national or international scale. It must start at home with our own charitable actions. We cannot legislate “humanness” or “righteousness.”
