I remember as a young boy seeing a picture in either "Life" or "Look" magazine (yes I'm that freaking old) of a Buddhist Monk who while protesting, what I haven't clue, poured gasoline on himself and set himself on fire. The incredible part is that he was just squatting there and enduring the obviously excruciating pain because he believed so strongly in his cause that he was able to will himself to remain calm... Well if you think I'm going to set myself on fire, you are not only crazy, you are going to be very disappointed... Yet there is absolutely nothing I'd rather do than to light a fire under the nations collective butt so that we might wake up and see the disastrous direction our country is being lead... It is said that there are none so blind as those who will not see and that is why I'm begging you, you being America, to pull your head out of your butt or where ever you've had it for the last six months... Now take a good look at where we're heading and repeat after me "not only no, but hell no"... (something that when said by my mother you new she meant it) We can't passively sit and wait another 3 1/2 years to elect another president, we must starting with the 2010 elections take back the House and Senate so we can effectively put the brakes on this out of control "Thugocracy"...

A good start would be electing Marco Rubio to replace Mel (the wimp) Martinez who obviously must think a wise Latina Senator knows better what is right for his stupid WASP constituents... Saving us from those evil carbon emissions by supporting Cap & Tax... How much money do you stand to earn in the private sector as a result of your "Turn Coat" vote... When you leave office, why don't you move to Vermont or New Hampshire so you'll be with your own kind...

Please feel free to to hum any melody that might come to mind while reading the following...

I'm pretty sure Michael owns the rights and the last time I checked, "He's still dead"...

When I find myself in times of trouble, Sarah Palin comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, can it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, can it be.

Can it be, can it be, can it be, can it be.
We must stand together, can it be.

And when the majority of people living in America agree,
there will be an an answer, can it be.
For though she may be parted there is still a chance that we will see,
She will be the answer, can it be.

Can it be, can it be, can it be, can it be.
We must stand together, can it be.

And when the night is cloudy, she's still the light that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, can it be.
I wake up to the sound of freedom, Sarah Palin comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, can it be.

Can it be, can it be, can it be, can it be.
We must stand together, can it be.

Though the liberals in Washington may not agree,
She will be the answer, can it be.
We've waited far too long for those who will not see,
Common sense is the answer, can it be.

Can it be, can it be, can it be, can it be.
We must stand together, can it be.

Oh wouldn't Glenn and Sarah be the greatest team,
We should be so lucky, can it be.
So if you've had enough and mad as hell you might be,
We are still the answer, can it be.

Can it be, can it be, can it be, can it be.
We must stand together, can it be.

I don't have a degree in economics, heck I don't have a degree period, but I was blessed with a little common sense... The operative word being LITTLE because that's all the common sense required to figure out that raising the minimum wage during these economic times is only going to cost jobs... The companies that employ these workers are not able to pass this cost along to the consumer, so the only way to manage the increase is to reduce the work force... It ultimately is more than just 11% as the employer now must match the FICA portion of this as well... The estimates I've heard range from 300,000 to 400,000 jobs lost as direct result of this increase in the minimum wage...

The bigger question is the real motive behind this... Who are more likely to be affected by this? Why it's the young 18 to 24 year olds, which coincidentally happens to be the ages AmeriCorp finds most desirable... This ultimately becomes a huge recruiting tool for government servitude and after all isn't bigger government what the left is all about? I happen to still believe when it comes to government, smaller is better... The left is constantly tauting their fight for the underprivileged, the minorities, or poor Americans.. When in fact it's for their own power grabbing and greed they institute policies to insure these same people they are so gallantly fighting for are indeed trapped in a system in which they must depend on big government to survive, insuring their return to elected office... The word trapped could easily be replaced with enslaved and wasn't that abolished quite some time ago? I don't see my view as being racist, yet the present administration would be the first to pull the race card, when in the mere fact that a black man (I refuse to use the term African American in the same way I won't say German American, Itallian American, Polish American or any other prefix to the name American, you are either an American or you're not) is in the White House should insure that race is no longer a valid arguement... Enough already with calling anyone who believes in capitalism a racist...

I'm not sure you are getting it... We, that's you, me, your kids, your friends, your friends kids, their friends, (that's your basic six degrees of separation) are about to lose America... It is said that genius is stating the obvious, I guess that makes me a freaking genius... This may come as a shock to you, but I voted for John McCain & Sarah Palin... It's not just me, but the people that voted for "CHANGE" that are starting to regret their decision... If there are any among us who still feel the right person is in the White House (as if any of them are reading my blog) I'll go back to my sixties roots and quote you a little "STEPPENWOLF" (please, John Kay & Steppenwolf) "your mind is so narrow it's no surprise if you fell on a pin girl you'd be blind in both eyes"... This man said he wanted to fundamentally change America, is this the change you voted for?

His latest Czar appointment is expected to be Cass Sunstein a Harvard educated (remind you of anyone) oh and was a Law Professor at the University of Chicago (getting warmer) who said that you should be able to abort a fetus up to two months after birth... Well that was until he changed his mind saying "up until the child can remember events" so I guess they are fair game up until approximately two years of age... This is the same Cass Sunstein who thinks that animals have the same rights as humans and should be given due process in a court of law... The truly sad part about this is not that he is being considered as a Czar appointee, but that he is allowed to walk the streets and is not in a mental hospital somewhere...

I wish I had an easy fix for the direction our country is heading, but unfortunately I don't... That is why I get on here and type my pencil to the bone (sorry, that's a visual some of you might not understand, being a quadriplegic I don't have the use of my fingers so I use the eraser end of a pencil to type) every chance I get... Of course you could all save me and my #2 (I was referring to my pencil) a lot of hassle and just watch Glenn Beck every evening... Where do think I get this stuff... So please, each and every one of us need to "every day in every way" (Mother Dear are you listening) do what ever we can within the confines of the law, to stop the systematic and deliberate destruction of our country...

There is absolutely nothing I would enjoy more than not having to spend my time blogging about the direction our country is headed, but it seems the universe has a different opinion as to how I should spend my time... Our country is changing, (where have I heard the word change, oh yes, it seems our Marxist in Chief ran on a platform promising the same) the problem is it is changing for the worse, not the better... There is very little that I fear, yet I'm scared "spitless" that I'm going to wake up one morning and not recognize the country I grew up in and loved so dearly...

I'd like to create a new mantra that we can all get behind whether it is "WAKE UP AMERICA" or simply "IT'S NOT TOO LATE" we can no longer afford to be complacent in our actions and thinking... I'd like to start listing what I feel is threatening our country, but also how we might fix the problem... (please I'm just one person, feel free to send me yours, as long as you include your ideas as how to correct them)

1. Cap & Trade or Cap & Tax as it has been more accurately called...

  • One word "NUCLEAR" even the French got this right...
  • Natural Gas of which we have 2,000 TRILLION cubic feet of right below us, just waiting to be tapped... Enough to meet our needs for the next 100 years...
  • Stop the combining of our federal government with huge corporations and labor unions... General Electric and the S.E.I.U. should not be able to commandeer our Federal Government for their own agenda... Wind power and solar are viable sources of energy, but by no means are they the end all do all... Though once upon a time in a land far, far away (sorry, I got carried away) unions were necessary, today they are not... Why on earth would we want to perpetuate inefficiency and promote uncontrolled labor costs which keep us from competing in a global market...
  • Call and email, even snail mail (the post office needs the money) your senators and don't ask, but demand that they oppose this legislation not only in its current form, but in any form...

2. Health Care Reform

  • Stop giving free health care to illegal immigrants... (what freaking part of "ILLEGAL" don't you understand) The state of Massachusetts where they have universal health care and are rapidly finding it to be a complete "CLUSTER" (need I say more) are actually cutting off care for "LEGAL" immigrants to help pay for this debacle... What's up with that?
  • Don't even think about taxing small business, or haven't you heard we are in what some call a recession and others might agree is a full fledged depression? This would cost jobs and isn't that a "BAD" idea considering our economic situation? Isn't this administration aware of the fact that 70% (some think a much higher percentage) of all jobs are created by small business?
  • Don't even think about funding this with the savings we will recognize from "Government Efficiency" (now there is an oxymoron) and cost cutting...
  • I personally don't feel that the government needs to take care of me, (health care wise or otherwise) and if you feel differently, you might want to start considering moving elsewhere... The "Declaration of Independence" proclaimed our unalienable right to "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, yet I don't recall any fine print guaranteeing equal results for all. There will always be those that excel, and dare I say, those that fail... You can't level the playing field by bringing down those that achieve, you must while assuring the opportunity, allow the others to achieve or underachieve as they may... No one benefits from so called "entitlements" they simply keep the recipients from ever achieving on their own...

3. A.C.O.R.N.

  • I'm putting this in your hands, please help me come up with a good acronym for S.Q.U.I.R.R.E.L. because we need to put fear into this insidious organization and I can't think of anything an acorn would fear more...
  • It's much later, how about STOP QUIETLY UNDERMINING INDIVIDUALS RIGHTS REGARDING ELECTION LEGITIMACY... (I'm sure someone out there can improve on that)
  • The problem is voter registration fraud is just the tip of the ice burg when it comes to these clowns... Wondering why I used clowns, have you ever seen pictures of the Rathke brothers? (sorry, I couldn't help throwing at least one cheap shot)
  • Back to solutions... Insist that the federal government launch a complete investigation into their financial dealings and corruption leading right into "The Oval Office"... Have you forgotten the fact that Obama was a "Community Organizer"...

4. Border Security

  • Finish the fence...
  • Finish the fence...
  • Finish the fence...
  • What part of finish the freaking fence don't they understand...

5. Illegal Immigration

  • Get rid of these so called "Sanctuary Cities"... Cut all federal funding to cities who blatantly harbor illegals... (are you listening) Please check out this list of sanctuary cities courtesy of Bill O'Reilly
  • Every time an illegal is caught in this country shoot him, the others might take a hint... Of course I'm kidding, (not really in my heart of hearts) but DEPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY, DO NOT PASS GO, DO NOT COLLECT $200.00, SEND THEM STRAIGHT BACK FROM WHENCE THEY CAME...
  • If you don't deport them immediately, at least deport a Bleeding Heart Liberal for every illegal they round up... Nancy Pelosi would be a good start...
  • If the federal government doesn't want to act, stay the hell away from local governments that will act... Sherrif Joe Arpaio would know what to do with them...

Czar You Serious?

Is Obama trying to completely circumvent our governments checks and balances? These so called "Czars" are not vetted, do not require senate confirmation and answer to no one but the president, yet they can effectively govern everything from our borders (don't even get me started on that topic) to cars of which I understand we're getting a new one... (car Czar that is) Am I the only one who thinks that Obama is saying "I'm in control and you can't stop me", or is the term "Change" finally being defined as what he really meant, the total destruction of our Republic and the United States of America... Obama's mantra "CHANGE" reminds me of an episode on The Twilight Zone (yes I'm old enough to have seen them when originally aired) where a spaceship landed and the aliens were tauting a book "How To Serve Man" which in the end was revealed to be a cookbook... Well the change this administration is bringing poses just as bleak an outcome...

In full disclosure, I must let you know that I grew up with and went to school with Gil Kerlikowske our Obama appointed "Drug Czar"... If Obama doesn't taint him, we are dealing with a gentleman who is honorable and I must say wanted to be a "cop" since before I wanted to be a professional baseball player... I changed my goals hundreds of times since I was ten years old, but Gil never did...

Love Supersedes Politics

I just got off the phone with my dearest friend and though we don't see eye to eye on politics, one thing is undeniable, love has no boundaries...


This Explains Everything

The year was 1947 Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little over 60 years ago, witnesses claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico . This is a well known incident that many say has long been covered up by the U.S.. Air Force and other federal agencies and organizations.. However, what you may not know is that in the month of April 1948, nine months after that historic day, the following people were born:

Albert A. Gore, Jr.
Hillary Rodham
John F. Kerry
William J. Clinton
Howard Dean
Nancy Pelosi
Dianne Feinstein
Charles E. Schumer
Barbara Boxer

See what happens when aliens breed with sheep and jackasses? I certainly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It did for me. No wonder they support the bill to help illegal aliens!

If there are any UFO experts out there, I'd like to know if there was a similar occurance happening in either late December 1960 or early January 1961. This easily explains why Barack Obama and Timothy Geithner were both born in August of 1961.

Shoot Me Now?

I remember as a young adult hearing my mother say "----- some day sex won't rule your life." To which I promptly replied "Shoot Me Now." So whether you are an optimist or not, I'm looking on the positive side, that being that I've lived long enough to to understand or at least come to grips with what she meant.

Living in these times when our Federal, State and even Local governments are "Hell Bent" on taking our constitutional rights from us, today I wonder if Patrick Henry would say "give me liberty or give me death" or simply "Shoot Me Now"...

I can only hope that I don't need to come to grips with understanding how something like this could happen, but instead live long enough for the need to subside...

Here in Florida there are two things we can do to help prevent the federal government from taking control of our lives... First we can start a campaign to tell Senator Mel Martinez that he needs to listen to us, not the special interest groups, and oppose any form of the "Cap & Trade" legislation... The second thing we can do is put our support behind Marco Rubio in his bid to become the next Republican Senator from Florida... The last thing we need is to have Charlie Crist get elected so he can follow in Martinez's footsteps all the while using his senatorial seat as something from which to campaign for the presidency...

Please take a minute to view this video...

Sold out by Mel Martinez

Below you are about to read the canned response you will receive if you email Senator Mel Martinez of Florida concerning Cap & Trade. I must admit I was floored to find out my Republican Senator, Mel Martinez is poised to vote "FOR" Cap & Trade. We all know that he is not running for reelection, "Lame Duck" or otherwise, why would you "SCREW" your constituents on the way out? It now is more important than ever that we band together to stop this travesty from ever being signed into law. If you haven't figured it out by now, I live in Florida, but no matter where in this great country you live, PLEASE send notice to your senators that you oppose this legislation. (I've put a link on the "LINKS" page that will give you contact information for all United States Senators & Congressmen)

Dear Mr.---------
Thank you for contacting me regarding the American Clean Energy and Security Act. I appreciate hearing from you and would like to take this opportunity to respond to your concerns.On May 15, 2009, Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA) introduced the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (H.R. 2454). This bill would create an absolute cap on total emissions from all covered entities including the electric power, transportation, oil and gas industry, and other commercial sectors with the goal of reducing greenhouse gases. This cap would be lowered over time through 2050, and a government-created market would be established to sell and trade emission allowances. On June 26, 2009, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2454 by a vote of 219-212. H.R. 2454 now awaits further consideration in the Senate.I believe that the threat of climate change is real, and I am working with my colleagues in the Senate to regulate and reduce greenhouse emissions. As we consider climate change legislation, we need to ensure that the laws we pass will in fact reduce carbon emissions and lessen the threat of catastrophic climate change. Additionally, we need to consider and attempt to mitigate any negative effects the new laws would have on our economy, energy prices, and Americans living on fixed incomes. The United States cannot solve this problem alone, and similar efforts in China and India are critical to combating this threat. However, our country can provide needed leadership and technological innovation for the international community, and, as one of the world's largest energy consumers, it is time for the United States to accept this responsibility. The choices we make now in dealing with climate change may be some of the most significant environmental and economic decisions of our generation. I assure you that I am committed to passing legislation to counter the threat posed by global climate change, and I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind should H.R. 2454, or any related legislation, receive the attention of the full Senate.Again, thank you for contacting me. If you have any additional questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me. In addition, for more information about issues and activities important to Florida, please sign up for my weekly newsletter at

Mel MartinezUnited States Senator

Let us not forget, this week at the "G8" conference, China & India both thumbed their noses at the rest of the members concerning the emissions addressed in this illconceieved legislation...

Happy Birthday America

It's July 4, 2009 and I can't think of a better time to post my first ever blog... We have set this website and blog up as a forum for "We the People" to come together to take back our country...

This country of ours is being hijacked, but it's not too late to turn things around... Please grab hold of your senses and help us restore our Constitution and get rid of these politicians (I'll call them that because I'm not going to use profanity) who are trying to turn our country into the United Socialist States of America... They have nationalized the banking industry, the auto industry and now they are trying to nationalize health care. Our last battlefield may very well be "Cap & Trade" because if we let them cram this down our throats America as we know it will for all intents and purposes be gone... If I wanted to live in a socialist country I'd move to Germany,(the beer is really good) but I don't, I choose to live here in the greatest country on the planet, the United States of America...

Please email your senators and demand that they vote "NO" on Cap & Trade legislation which will destroy jobs and become a revenue source (remember it's not really a tax, ha ha) for the government... The passage of this and subsequent signing into law will not only cost the average household over $3,000.00 a year, but put a strangle hold on our ability to create manufacturing jobs and turn this fledgling economy around...

Happy Birthday and God Bless America
