The Culprit is Farmville! (L)

OK, I admit I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I'm not stupid either!

I was just coming back from a trip to Sam's Club and was listening to the local station that is King of Talk Radio in SW Florida, 92.5 FM. You know Glenn, Rush, Sean and many others. Well on Sunday afternoons they carry the Kim Commando Show. I normally would have turned it off, but she had a caller talking about digital SLR cameras and as I am somewhat of a shutterbug I kept listening. Boy do I long for the days when I shot a good old Nikon F!

After some selfindulging commercials she returned to mention something about Farmville! Not being a whiz on social media (I don't facebook or twitter) she started talking about a city councilman that was fired because he would not stop playing Farmville during council meetings.

As Bro and I are rapidly approaching sixty and I dare not speak for Bro, I had never heard of Farmville. (Now I wish I had not been listening.) Apparently this is a game played on facebook, and is quite popular. Ms. Commando's next comment almost made me run of the road. She stated that there are 75,000,000 ( That's not a misprint, that is seventy five million!) people who play this internet game. That's right folks,a freaking game!

Now one can only imagine the amount of money it costs businesses every day in lost productivity and wages. If even a third of them play for one hour a day while they are suppose to be working that is 25,000,000 lost hours per day! That is the equivalent to 625,000 full time forty hour per week jobs! You know if you have city councilmen playing during meetings that the general public must be playing a hell of a lot more while they are on the clock!

Being of the suspicious type by nature, I would be willing to bet that this is some insidious plot developed by some leftwing whacko to make sure that a good portion of the general population is otherwise occupied so they will not know about what the Marxist-In-Chief was doing. You know "Nero fiddling while Rome burned!" Just have them playing a silly ass game and no one will be the wiser!

I realize I am probably not going to right the ship with this post, but I had to write it! If I can save one soul from their evil game it will be well worth the few minutes it took to post this. We must not let these sly bastards inflict anymore pain than they already have!

Come on America wake up!

The far left doesn't have a problem, witness the crowds at the G20 in Toronto...
Now before you decide that I've lost my mind, I assure you that I'm not advocating violence... What I am saying is that there is no room or time for complacency... We need to act now, or it's going to be too late...

I refuse to believe that we can't get this country back on track, but it's not going to happen by sitting on our couches screaming at the TV... I was watching Fox and Friends earlier and saw a piece about the "Achilles Project" a race in Central Park taking place today... There were 36 or 37 participants from Walter Reed Medical Center who were still recovering from life altering injuries suffered in Afghanistan and Iraq... They, along with the others who went and died before them to protect this great country, didn't join the Armed Services to fight our enemies so we could sit on our asses and watch this country go down the tubes...

I'm a firm believer in the fact that EDUCATION is key, however that is a long term process that will insure that we never go down this treacherous road again... I'll leave that to Glenn Beck who thankfully has done a masterful job in educating us as to how we got here, but if we don't stop these evil bastards right now, we'll only know how they destroyed the American dream, as it will be too late...

Join a group, start a group, stand on the side of the road and hold a sign or flag... Let others know they're not alone... Encourage your family and friends to make a difference... Trust me when I say you're going to run into Left Wing, Kool-Aide Drinking Loons, don't waste your time trying to convert them, just keep moving... It's the people on the fence that we need to save from the Dark Side... The biggest hurdle we must overcome is COMPLACENCY, for this is a disease we can ill afford... Everybody knows someone who I like to say "wouldn't run if they were on fire", these people, the "A-Political" are the ones we need to inform and inspire... These people aren't reading our Blogs, they are the morons on Facebook going "It's Friday" to which 22 people click on "Like this", while some go as far as to comment "Yipeee"... Pardon me while I puke...

You bet your sweet ass this will hurt...

The Communist-N-Chief has come to the clear realisation that he's a "One hit wonder" and his "Rock Star" image has fizzled... Even the Europeans have fallen off the band wagon telling him that deficit reduction, not more stimulus is the only way to try and pull the global economy out of this "Black Hole" (Hallmark didn't copyright that phrase, did they?) that we are in... This is what has prompted him to keep cramming every one of his Communist ideas down our throats, especially amnesty for illegal (yes they are criminals) aliens... This is precisely why Harold Hurtt a proponent of "Sanctuary Cities" has been hired as the director for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement... The next thing I expect to hear is "Ally, ally, all in free" as an already out of control problem just gets worse...

America, it's time to take off the blinders, our federal government has been taken over, infiltrated by Communists that are "Hell Bent" on destroying this great country...

The second revolution has begun and I pray it will be bloodless, but we as Americans must pledge our "Lives, Fortunes and Sacred Honor" to defend this country from evil, both foreign and domestic...

Dick Morris knows that the worse thing that could possibly happen would be for FEDZILLA to start bailing out the states...
The states are being destroyed by the out of control pension funds of their state workers and NOTHING is going to stop the bleeding until this can be addressed... I'll ask you to read this article in "The Hill" in which Dick shows how we can approach this problem with something that can work as opposed to Obama's idiotic plan to just bail them out with our federal tax dollars...

By Dick Morris
Published on TheHill.com on June 22, 2010
Many say that the situation in Greece is a harbinger of what is coming to the United States. They are right. But first it will come to states like New York, California and Michigan that are stretched way beyond their means and deeply in debt.
Until now, the problems in these states have been papered over by federal aid. Essentially, Washington has relieved these states (and the local governments they fund) of their constitutional obligations to balance their budgets by giving them welfare checks in the nick of time. Obama now seeks to pass $50 billion in additional welfare to the states.
But since these federal funds are not necessarily recurring — and the jobs and obligations they fund are — they simply enlarge each year’s deficit hole and enable the states to go more deeply into the red.
As these deficits mount — particularly if a newly elected Republican House and/or Senate refuse to fund them — bondholders will get more and more nervous. Eventually, they will realize that the less solvent states are bankrupt and will refuse to buy their debt. Eyes in Sacramento, Lansing and Albany will turn helplessly to Washington to guarantee their debt, just as Athens turns to Berlin.
Republicans, if they control either or both Houses, should stand firm and insist that these states sink or swim on their own. America’s taxpayers will not take kindly to having to bail out other states — or even their own — to pay for years of reckless spending. Americans will swarm to the GOP and will hail its stand.
The time is long past when a local newspaper can generate sympathy — even from its own readers and the state’s own citizens — with a headline like “Ford to New York: Drop Dead.” Now people in other states (and even in the affected state) would stand up and cheer should the Republicans take so strong a position.
There is currently no legal procedure for a state government to go bankrupt. Congress, especially if it is Republican in 2011, should pass a mechanism that permits states to discharge in bankruptcy their collective bargaining agreements and contracts with municipal unions. Of course, this procedure would have to let school boards and local governments do likewise.
Obama will veto this bill and a stalemate will ensue.
On the left will stand Obama, the unions and the Democrats demanding bailouts for the states and, truly, an end to our federal system of government. Once Washington guarantees state debt and spending, there will be no more state governance, only national rule.
On the right will stand a Republican Congress refusing to do so unless the states declare bankruptcy and cleanse themselves of the union agreements that got them into trouble in the first place. The GOP will point out that state funding is leaking as surely as the Deepwater Horizon oil well and polluting our nation’s balance sheet as badly in the process.
The money will run out. States, school boards and localities will stop sending out checks. Emergency state funding may keep schools open, prisons locked and police and fire services running, but otherwise all hell will break loose.
Something will give in this national game of chicken. If it is the states and Obama that blink first, we will free our local governments of the grip of municipal unions, their rigid work rules and their unaffordable pensions. If the Republicans blink first, they will forfeit their right to represent the American people, having backed down from the challenge of our times.
This Armageddon looms in 2011, presenting us with either an opportunity to reform our government in fundamental ways or to set in stone our path to an Athens-esque meltdown.

Please send this article to everyone you know, or direct them to http://www.dickmorris.com/blog/ and let them read it on Dick's blog...

An open letter from actor Jon Voight to President Obama:

June 22, 2010

Dear President Obama:

You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies. You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's enemy - and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world.

You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientist and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals and want Israel eradicated.

You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics.

With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel,

Jon Voight

Democrats Vote Down 5 Percent Rule
In a bid to stem taxpayer losses for bad loans guaranteed by federal housing agencies Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn) proposed that borrowers be required to make a 5% down payment in order to qualify.
His proposal was rejected 57-42 on a party-line vote because, as Senator Chris Dodd (D-Conn) explained, "passage of such a requirement would restrict home ownership to only those who can afford it."

I guess if you're a friend of Angelo you want everyone to get a "sweetheart deal"...

It's morons like Chris Dodd that have put this country on the brink of bankruptcy and all it's going to take to finish the job is the Marxist-N-Chief who is pushing for another $50 billion in stimulus... Dear God in heaven, please help us to remove these jerks (Dodd isn't going to run for re-election) from office so we can start the healing process...

Spill Response Not About Oil, But Snake Oil
By THOMAS SOWELL Posted 06/14/2010 06:48 PM ET

The big oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is bad enough in itself. But politics can make anything worse.
Let's stop and think. Either the government knows how to stop the oil spill or they don't. If they know how to stop it, then why have they let thousands of barrels of oil per day keep gushing out, for weeks on end? All they have to do is tell BP to step aside, while the government comes in to do it right.
If they don't know, then what is all this political grandstanding about keeping their boot on the neck of BP, the attorney general of the United States going down to the Gulf to threaten lawsuits — on what charges was unspecified — and President Obama showing up in his shirt sleeves?
Just what is Obama going to do in his shirt sleeves, except impress the gullible? He might as well have shown up in a tuxedo with white tie, for all the difference it makes.
This government is not about governing. It is about creating an impression. That worked on the campaign trail in 2008, but it is a disaster in the White House, where rhetoric is no substitute for reality.
If the Obama administration was for real, and trying to help get the oil spill contained as soon as possible, the last thing its attorney general would be doing is threatening a lawsuit. A lawsuit is not going to stop the oil, and creating a distraction can only make people at BP start directing their attention toward covering themselves, instead of covering the oil well.
If and when the attorney general finds that BP did something illegal, that will be time enough to start a lawsuit. But making a public announcement at this time accomplishes absolutely nothing substantive. It is just more political grandstanding.
This is not about oil. This is about snake oil.
Nothing will keep a man or an institution determined to continue on a failing policy course like past success with that policy. Obama's political success in the 2008 election campaign was a spectacular triumph of creating images and impressions.
But creating political impressions and images is not the same thing as governing. Yet Obama in the White House keeps on saying and doing things to impress people, instead of governing.
Once the elections were over and the time for governing began, there was now a new audience to consider — a much more savvy audience, the leaders of other countries around the world.

Does this make Thomas Sowell a racist because he disagrees with Obama? I guess he's just an Uncle Tom, I could only hope to be a fraction of the intellectual this man is... Truth is, he probably is some lucky niece or nephews Uncle Tom...

This was sent to me by a friend (thanks Nick) and goes to show that Glenn Beck is not the only one that sees that the uber left progressives have an agenda that not only is dangerous to our wallets, they're trying to destroy our belief system...

"Our Judeo-Christian heritage provides the underpinnings to our constitutional government for one simple reason: It acknowledges the transcendental nature of man. Our fundamental liberties flow from God almighty - not the state. This is why individual rights - to life, liberty and property - are the essential bulwarks against government power: What God has given, no man - or regime - can take away. Once America loses its Christian identity, it will inevitably lose its freedoms."

"Christophobia forms the basis of modern liberalism. Leftist progressives are determined to destroy traditional America and its seminal institutions - the Constitution, capitalism, national sovereignty and the family. This is why they have declared war on Christianity."

"If Christians do not rise from their apathy and man the ideological barricades, they will be driven into the catacombs once again. And with their defeat comes the end of our great republic."

"We must boldly stand against any who attempt to degrade our Christian heritage. We must identify them as practicing one of the last acceptable forms of bigotry and hatred: Christophobia."

--Jeffrey T. Kuhner is a columnist at The Washington Times and president of the Edmund Burke Institute, a Washington think tank.

What the hell are they afraid of? Oops, I think I just stumbled upon where they are going... They should be afraid, VERY AFRAID...


I don't know about you, but this makes me feel much better...
thanks Bill...

It was a mere 23 years this September that I broke my neck in an act of utter stupidity... I know full well that without the prayers of many people, I wouldn't be posting this blog today, I would be pushing up daisy's... What I am saying, is that even God can use a little help every once in a while, after all, next Sunday is "FATHERS" day...

(L) and I were fortunate to have been raised by a mother that for a lack of a better analogy, was ahead of her time... She taught us not only to be Christians, but that the human mind and (may I rot in hell if this next statement is associated with Socialism or Communism)

the "collective conscience of man" are powerful tools that should be used in conjunction with prayer...

Exactly what do I mean by the term "Positive Affirmation"... Before I was in a wheelchair, I was a runner... I started out as a 30 year old that was freaking out about the prospects of not only being one of "those" that I was taught by society (being a child of the sixties) could not be trusted, but that my metabolism was about to change and I was going to balloon to proportions that weren't recognisable... I soon got involved in competitive racing and was training on a daily basis... I was over at my mother's house and mentioned the fact that I was training more than ever, but wasn't getting the results I thought I should... She grabbed a piece of paper and a pen and wrote these words I am a smooth and efficient runner, I waste no energy that doesn't contribute to my goal, I will run as if the wind is always at my back... You may take this as you please, but shortly after starting to repeat this affirmation while I trained and while I raced, I started winning races in my age group and was voted that year by the Ft. Myers Track Club to be "Most Improved Runner of the Year"...

Have you ever seen an athlete such as a "high jumper" standing there just prior to performing in their event with their eyes closed and literally going over in their mind exactly what they wish to do, visualizing themselves clearing the bar... You can't achieve what first you don't visualize or dream about...

Where was I going with this?

I want to challenge you to the following... Pick one or more of the following (feel free to make your own) affirmations and write it down... Once, twice, twenty times a day pull out that paper and read out loud, with conviction the ones you have chosen... Over and over again in your minds eye, see this coming to fruition... This will help you to feel that you are doing more than just screaming at the television... Again, this does not replace or circumvent your prayers... Please pray for our troops in harms way and our country, as we need them now more than ever to be answered...

  1. We will take back our country...

  2. The Constitution will be restored...

  3. Honor will be restored in our government and country...

  4. We will reduce the size of the federal government...

  5. We will repeal the healthcare bill...

  6. Out of control spending will be stopped...

  7. The deficit will be reduced...

  8. Taxes will be reduced...

  9. Private sector jobs will increase while government jobs will be reduced...

  10. The progressive movement will be crushed and exposed for what they truly are...

  11. Unions and their thugs will be destroyed...

  12. Capitalism and the free market will flourish...

The next thing is to start visualizing things that you want to see happen...

  1. See in your mind your favorite candidate (hate the word politician) giving his or her victory speach...

  2. See Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer and others packing up their belongings from their offices in Washington

  3. See Barack Obama denouncing socialism... (OK, that's a little far fetched, perhaps just putting on his big boy britches and stop blaming Bush for everything)

  4. See Nancy Pelosi handing over her gavel to the new speaker of the house...

  5. See unemployment becoming nonexistant...

  6. See oil wells in Anwr...

  7. Please see the prestine gulf coast beaches being restored...

  8. See the restoration of God in our schools and lives...

  9. See Faith - Hope - Charity...

  10. See our founding fathers looking down at us with huge smiles on their faces in lieu of disbelief in what we've allowed this great country to become...

  11. See crippling sanctions being imposed on Iran...

  12. See me blogging on something like Beer, because conservative blogs are not needed any longer...

Saturday, June 12, 2010


Every once in a while you find yourself being fortunate enough to meet someone who can make you reflect on how lucky you are and exactly what it means to be an AMERICAN... Today was one of those days... We had as our guest speaker at our monthly 9/12 Project meeting Ismael Hernandez from the Freedom & Virtue Institute... Ismael was raised in Puerto Rico as a socialist revolutionary who was on his way to Nicaragua and becoming an even more revolutionary Jesuit priest affiliated with the Sandinista... It was the murder of several Jesuit priests in Nicaragua that prevented Ismael from pursuing his dream of furthering his socialist agenda and inevitably brought him here to the University of Southern Mississippi... He came here to get his masters degree in "Political Science" so he could use his degree to defeat capitalism... His initial plan was to come over the summers, returning to Puerto Rico every year to teach in order to fund his education over each of the following summers until he achieved his degree... It was only after his first semester that a group of professors nominated him for a scholarship to entirely pay for his education... How can this be? How can a Puertorican Socialist come to the United States of America, the home of capitalism and be rewarded for his efforts, even as devious as his motives originally were... What's up with this capitalism, why would they reward him, when everyone knows, only the socialist can give him what he needs... Perhaps he should stay here to prove once and for all that capitalism is the root of all evil as we know it today... Many years have passed and sadly I must report that those evil capitalists have claimed another victim, cruelly imprisoning him here in a society where he must reap the rewards of his labor...

Here is a link to the Freedom & Virtue Institutes' website http://www.fvinstitute.org/
I strongly suggest you check this out...

Why must it take an outsider to open our eyes? The truth is, no one today is taught what freedom is, they take it for granted... We here in America have become complacent, thinking that nothing we have can be taken from us and all our needs will be met by the government... This is precisely what the radical progressives have preached and the gullible Kool-Aide drinking morons have accepted...

"Hey Charlie, you got some splaining to do"

Greer’s attorney says Crist personally signed off on cash diversion

posted at 11:36 am on June 7, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Charlie Crist claimed not to know anything about the deal that allowed his handpicked state GOP chair, Jim Greer, to take 10% off the top of Republican spending. Greer’s attorney accused Crist of lying and said that the Governor “personally approved” the fundraising arrangement. The idea came from the man that Crist appointed as the placeholder for the Senate seat Crist now seeks, according to Greer’s attorney:
Gov. Charlie Crist personally signed off on his former Republican Party chairman’s confidential fundraising role with the state party, according to Jim Greer’s attorney, whose allegation contradicts the governor’s statement that he “didn’t know anything” about the deal now part of a criminal investigation.
State investigators say Greer and the party’s former executive director, Delmar W. Johnson III, secretly set up a shell company called Victory Strategies to divert party money and enrich themselves. Greer was charged Wednesday with fraud and money laundering.
But Greer’s attorney, Damon Chase, said Saturday that the deal giving them a 10 percent cut of party donations was legal. What’s more, Chase said Crist’s former right-hand man, now U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, first proposed the idea that they earn a fundraising commission to save the party money and replace the $30,000-a-month contract with fundraiser Meredith O’Rourke.
“You guys work hard. You deserve it,” Chase said Greer was told by the governor as they played pool in February 2009 at a Palm Beach golf tournament.
Greer’s attorney could well be repeating lies and/or spin told by Greer, of course. Greer needs to find some kind of lifeline out of a moderately-long stay in Club Fed if these charges remain in place through a trial. Chase wants to argue that the arrangements were legal, and the best way to do that is to connect as many people to them as possible. If the Governor signed off on the deal, then Greer couldn’t have believed it to be illegal, which only works to mitigate rather than exculpate if the deal in fact broke the law. It helps the defense argue that there was no intent to break the law, even if it did in fact get broken, and that could have an impact on sentencing.
None of that helps Crist if this turns out to be true, though. Even if the deal turns out to be entirely legal, it looks like a way to launder money back to Crist’s supporters in the GOP establishment. Crist picked Greer for the role, and in return Greer threw elbows within the state GOP for Crist, while making himself a tidy amount of money in fundraising commissions. There just isn’t any good way to spin a party chair taking 10% off the top of a fundraising responsibility he would have in any case.
It puts Crist into a tighter vise as well. He will have to respond by calling Greer a liar, but it was Crist himself who put Greer in that position. Even if Greer and Chase are lying, it reminds voters that Crist has a serious problem with judgment, and that comes on top of his decision to abandon the GOP for no other reason than because Marco Rubio was more popular than Crist.

With great shame, I'll admit that I voted for Charlie Crist to become governor of Florida, but I'll die trying to prevent this "Scumbag" from remaining in politics here in Forida or anywhere else...

It was revealed today that Charlie has removed any mention of his Pro-life stance from his election website... The term "RINO" is too good for this creep... He will stoop to new depths to try to win in November...

Marco Rubio must prevail, Good must conquer Evil...

POEM - Illegal Immigrants

I cross river,
poor and broke,

Take bus,
see employment folk.

Nice man
treat me good in there,
Say I need
go see Welfare.

Welfare say,
'You come no more,

We send cash
right to your door.'

Welfare checks,
they make you wealthy,

it keep you healthy!

By and by,
Got plenty money,

Thanks to you, TAXPAYER dummy.

Write to friends
in motherland,

Tell them
'come, fast as you can'

They come in buses
and Ford trucks,

I buy big house
with welfare bucks.
They come here,
we live together,

More welfare checks,
it gets better!

Fourteen families,
they moving in,

But neighbor's patience
wearing thin.

Finally, white guy
moves away,

I buy his house,
and then I say,

'Find more aliens
for house to rent.'

In my yard
I put a tent.

Send for family

But they, too,
draw welfare cash!

Everything is

Soon we own
whole neighborhood.

We have hobby

Kids need dentist?
Wife need pills?

To keep welfare

Too darn good

If they no like us,
they can go,
Got lots of room
in Mexico .

We're not racists, we're Americans trying to save our country...

There are people that actually think this would be appropriate...

Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren't being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry.

Photo of the ASSHOLE... Actually when I googled the name, this came up as "Head Shot"... I'm thinking maybe a 45 caliber right between his "F**KING" eyes...

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented.

Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved goodbye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France and Japan. None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan. They were defending the United States of America as one people.

When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French American, the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.

And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I'm sorry, that's not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn't start talking about
dismantling the United States just yet.

I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation!

This was for the most part a letter to the editor of the Orange County Register back in 2006 which strangely enough was never published...

Here's another gathering of the S.W. Florida 9/12 Project... That's (L) holding up the palm tree while proudly displaying "Old Glory"... Of course as usual, I'm just sitting on my ass... In case you're having trouble reading the sign, it says ARIZONA Doing what the federal government won't... We did draw the attention of (1) local T.V. station, however they neglected to air the piece... Probably had to clear it through Jeffrey Immelt at G.E. and it was dropped... Thanks Sarah, you tried...

As usual, we had a great turn out of fellow patriots that stretched the entire block on First Street in front of the Federal Courthouse... Being a Saturday in downtown Ft. Myers, there wasn't a huge volume of traffic, but we felt the fact that Arizona is only upholding what is federal law, the location was more of a statement as opposed to being more visible...

Again I'll link to our local website, but they're all over the country...


Here's another alternative...

Back on Uncle Sam's Plantation (L)

This was sent to me by my friend Randy in South Carolina. I thought it was one of the best explanations of why Socialism doesn't work that I had ever seen. I hope you do as well!

Back on Uncle Sam's Plantation by Star Parker - Syndicated Columnist

Six years ago I wrote a book called Uncle Sam's Plantation. I wrote the book to tell my own story of what I saw living inside the welfare state and my own transformation out of it.

I said in that book that indeed 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.

Through God's grace, I found my way out. It was then that I understood what freedom meant and how great this country is.

I had the privilege of working on welfare reform in 1996 which was passed by a Republican controlled Congress. I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out of our poor black communities and replacing it with wealth-producing American capitalism. But, incredibly, we are now going in the opposite direction. 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.

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. Worse, socialism seems to be the element of our new young president. And maybe even more troubling, our corporate executives seem happy to move onto the plantation. In an Op-Ed on the opinion page of the Washington Post, Mr. Obama is clear that the goal of his trillion dollar spending plan is much more than short term economic stimulus. "This plan is more than a prescription for short-term spending -- it's a strategy for America 's long-term growth and opportunity in areas such as renewable energy, healthcare, and education." Perhaps more incredibly, Obama seems to think that government taking over an economy is a new idea. Or that massive growth in government can take place "with unprecedented transparency and accountability."

Yes, sir, we heard it from Jimmy Carter when he created the Department of Energy, the Synfuels Corporation, and the Department of Education.b Or how about the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 -- The War on Poverty -- which President Johnson said "...does not merely expand old programs or improve what is already being done. It charts a new course. It strikes at the causes, not just the consequences of poverty." (You all remember him, he was the Democrat President that signed the Democratic Bill that removed Social Security from being a "Protected (LOCKED)" Fund that could not be touched by the US Congress or used for anything other than Social Security. Now SS is BROKE!)

Trillions of dollars later, black poverty is the same. But black families are not, with triple the incidence of single-parent homes and out-of-wedlock births. It's not complicated. Americans can accept Barack Obama's invitation to move onto the plantation. Or they can choose personal responsibility and freedom. Does anyone really need to think about what the choice should be?

"The trouble with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money." That may be the REASON that we are now BORROWING so much from OTHER Countries!!!!!!!
