The Unraveling

Michael Crichton's book State of Fear was, for me, the first nail in the coffin of The Global Warming Hoax.  Now the last nail has been hammered in, and all that is left is the burial. Climate Depot provides all the nails you need to hammer The Hoax for yourself.  The emails that were found and reported last week are the real Inconvenient Truth. Algore was right about one thing. The Truth is often inconvenient.

Having, exercising, or characterized by sound judgment

440 Phantom Congressional Districts Get $6.4 Billion According to

No matter what side of the aisle you prefer, this is our government spending our money judiciously. I just cannot see how our government can make any claim to managing National Heath Care in a manner most beneficial to its people. This is just madness folks.

Transforming Our Constitution

To those saying "so what, just a blunder", "this is not important", "why is it bad?" - It is more than just a bow. This single incident is one of many, a pattern of behavior during JUST the first year of his presidency that is more disturbing than any president since. He is seeking fundamentally to transform the United States and since our nation is fundamentally defined by our Constitution it is our Constitution he wishes to transform? If it were not for our Constitution, Obama would not be in office! Is this what you voted for?


President Obama:...

Today I read of your administrations' plan to re-define September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it's time we had a talk........ .

During your campaign, Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition.

YES, "We noticed."

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not America has 57 states.

YES, "We noticed."

When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently placed a flower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning over.

YES, "We noticed."

Every time you apologized to other countries for America 's position on an issue we have wondered why you don't share our pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. In fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.

YES, "We noticed."

When your pastor of 20 years, "God-damned America " and said that 9/11 was " America 's chickens coming home to roost" and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically expedient to do so.

YES, "We noticed."

When you announced that you would transform America , we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, "if not for America and the people who built her, you wouldn't be sitting in the White House now." Prior to your election to the highest office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records available, not a very remarkable one.

YES, "We noticed."

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her traditions.

YES, "We noticed."

You are 9 months into your term and every morning millions of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation.

YES, "We noticed."

We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled "un-American" ,"racist" , "mob". We wonder how we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans had the right to speak out.

YES, "We noticed."

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was carried out because we are Americans.

And YES, "We noticed."

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have failed us.

YES, "We noticed."

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a "National Service Day". While we know that you don't share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what it is...a disgrace.

YES, "We noticed."

You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy.

YES, "We noticed.."

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office.

Take notice.

Deference to a Superior

I understand bows like this are a sign of great respect, but in other parts of the world bows also represent deference to a superior. Meaning "great honor, respect and esteem due a superior or elder". Or "the willingness to carry out the wishes of others". This, by itself, is not a bad thing but when combined with other presidential actions makes for a pattern without any historical precedent. In my opinion, not a very good one.

A Superpower Stirs

A Superpower Stirs: 600 years after bringing home its armada, will China once again stride the world's stage? Very interesting article about China and its perceived influence. The 160+ comments on the article are also interesting. Good read!

To Be or Not To Be - A Terroist

Why is Obama NOT calling this a terrorist attack?

Political correctness is at least partly responsible for the disaster at Fort Hood. Roger L. Simon in a an excellent article called "Fort Hood: Political Correctness as Murder Weapon" in Pajamas Media, makes this point " ....Political correctness is derived from the more... intellectually respectable doctrine of cultural relativism. In essence, cultural relativism holds that an individuals beliefs and activities should only be understood in terms of his or her own culture. It's the ultimate version of "who are we to judge?" If Ayatollah Khomeini wishes to oppress all the women and homosexuals in Iran, it's their way. If Mao seeks to knock off seventy million of his countrymen, so be it. We shouldn't impose our values."

What Stimulus?

Obama’s Failed Stimulus in Pictures: 10.2% Unemployment

When President Barack Obama was pitching his $787 billion economic stimulus package, the White House produced a report claiming their plan would keep unemployment under a peak of 8%.


"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories." — President Thomas Jefferson

Nitty Gritty Dirty Proposal

Things get a little scary when you start looking at the nitty gritty details of the National Health Care proposals.


Obama campaigned on the platform of “Hope and Change” throughout his race for the presidency. He was spot on - I have a little Change and Hoping 2010 will stop this madness . At the rate Obama and the Democrats are going I will not even have the Change left, in my pocket this is.

Cap and Tax

Interesting perspective on the futility of cap and trade. Video even explains what Cap and Trade is and how it works or rather, does not work.


"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it." — Thomas Paine, Founding Father

Iran’s list of American hostages is steadily growing.

Who goes hiking on the Iran/Iraq border?

Obama, We need you to stand up for us!!!!!


"Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of the men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory." — Gen. George S. Patton

Just because it is the right thing to do.

They didn’t have to head to Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

With no media attention, they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack. FOR HOURS. The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

My values are not inline with their gay rights platform but the folks at the link below have some interesting things to say about the previous administration.


"I have lived, Sir, a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this Truth, that God governs in the Affairs of Men." — Benjamin Franklin

Where is the consitutional authority?

Does the Constitution allow the federal government to force individual citizens to buy health insurance? Moreover, should the House or Senate be required to provide an explanation of the constitutional authority for legislation in general?


"If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people,
under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy."

Past Rulings Haunt President Obama's Judicial Nominee

Past Rulings Haunt President Obama's Judicial Nominee.

Judge David Hamilton says lawmakers can pray to Allah – but not to Jesus

Public Option for Congress

How do you think Congress will vote on this one?

Republican Rep. Joe Wilson proposed an amendment Wednesday that would force all members of Congress to receive health insurance coverage through the government-run plan proposed in the House's reform bill.

"If the public option is good enough for the American people, then it's certainly good enough for Congress," Wilson said. "If this government-run plan is so good, why don't members of Congress take the plan?

"Barack Obama there is none higher"

"Barack Obama there is none higher" - From transcript of song lyrics presented by Powell Elementary School. Song title. "Powell Elementary Present Kings of Rock"

You have got to see these!!! Eleven videos of school children singing praises to Obama!

Can You Wait?

"Reform plan to cover the sickest who lack insurance calls for 6 month delay."

Coverage for 100s of millions or just 30 million?

I just heard the president say during todays White House press briefing that National Heath Care will be for the 100s of millions of Americans in our country. Folks I have been talking to lately tell me National Heath Care is for just the 30 million Americans currently not covered. Which is it, 100s of millions or 30 million?

Fair, Unbiased and Balanced News

"Thousands arrive in Washington D.C. for rally. Wonder why you aren't seeing this on cnnmsnbcabccbsnbc? Hmm..." - Mark W.

Could not believe the above statement that our fair, unbiased and balanced news networks were not covering the Washington D.C. GOP Health Care rally. I checked CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC AND CBS. Only FOX was carrying any type of coverage. Are you getting all the news or only what some want you to know?

Well Said

"There's a tendency to throw aside old values as belonging to an earlier generation. Don't discard those values that have proven, over the period of time, their value. Just believe in those values that made our nation great and keep them: faith, family, hard work, and, above all, freedom." — President Ronald Reagan

Health-Care Reform Vote May Come This Week

Republicans asked Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to release the text of the bill, but Democrats have refused. Ashley Horne, federal policy analyst for Focus on the Family Action, said Democrats argue that everything sent to the CBO may not end up in the final version."Even so," she said, "taxpayers and members of Congress should be allowed to review the various packages to learn how the government is proposing to spend taxpayer money."
