Happy Independence Day

On July 2nd 1776 the Second Continental Congress approved Richard Henry Lee’s Resolution of Independence, thus declaring the 13 Colonies free and independent of Great Britain and the Crown.

The Congress then turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence a document that the committee of five with Thomas Jefferson being the chief author had undertaken to explain the particulars and reasons for the colonies to seek independence. The Delaration after debate and amendment was…

Big Brother Has Come to Town

 In deference to George Orwell’s classic book, “1984” and in light of recent revelations about activities of the DOJ, IRS, EPA, NSA, TSA among others, I thought this parody poem appropriate to point to the looming threat to our Liberty that all Americans face today.

You better watch out

Cause he’s gonna lie

You better lookout

I'm telling you why

Big Brother has come to town

He's making a list,

And checking it twice

He's gonna decide who's been…

Shell Games or What Goes Around Comes Around

So you say you don’t like Obamacare, it’s unconstitutional.  You think Chief Justice Roberts got it wrong, legislated from the bench and called a penalty a tax so that the bill would survive.  You know that if they called the personal mandate a tax back in 2010, the bill would never have passed the first time.  The mere size of this power grab, control over 1/6th of our economy, scares the dickens out of you.   You worry about what further encroachments on your liberty are in…

The Experience Factor

The Experience Factor

At the upcoming intra-party and public office elections, we have some clear choices to make between the tiresome “Go along to get along” candidates and the “Get it right, get it done” candidates.  In this election year with our liberty on the line, we have to “Get it right and get it done”!  Obama must go, and we must flip the U.S. Senate, and improve our position in the House of Representatives.  We can only get those things done if we have experienced…

Stop Internet Tyranny

The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act bills are just too misguided and egregious to not take the time to stop them! The language is recklessly broad and represents an imminent danger to freedom! We already have laws to protect against piracy. This is an effort by some in government to be able to throttle and even eliminate free speech over the internet at will.

Look closely at the "bi-partisan support", this is scary. It is just another chapter in the ongoing battle for the…

Defaults, Terrorists and Reality

Defaults, Terrorists and Reality

 

Of recent, we have heard much, of the Federal Governments’ certain default if we didn’t raise the debt ceiling, yet many fiscally conservative Congressmen made compelling arguments against doing so or at least not doing so without commensurate and immediate cuts in spending, which after all, nearly everyone admits is beyond our ability to pay for.  Their reward for questioning the long-term viability and fiscal prudence of the debt ceiling…

The Debt Ceiling Deal Falls Short!

The Debt Ceiling Deal Falls Short!

 

The debt ceiling deal announced yesterday evening by President Obama and Speaker Boehner falls far short of the necessary target.  We have a completely irresponsible spending problem coupled with a fallen revenue problem.  Our leaders once again have delivered up smoke and mirrors in the seemingly endless parade of “Washington Political Theater”.

 

Over the last three years the federal spending level has increased over $1…

A Key To Winning Our Country Back

A Key To Winning Our Country Back 

  

Here we are 7 months into the new 112th Congress, who just last November, received a huge makeover and a mandate to "Cut Spending"!  And how successful have they been?  How much have they saved? That's easy "0"! 

We started out with dreams of cutting $400-500 Billion a year, in light of deficits that had increased by over $1.2 Trillion per year!  They quickly sliced and diced that down to $100 Billion, only to come back from…

How Does America Break Out of the Financial Crisis?

How Does America Break Out of the Financial Crisis?

 

I will try to explain this as succinctly as possible.  America is faced with several looming problems that are preventing our recovery and are being largely ignored.  Much of it is not revealed or pursued because there are many folks making a lot of money over it!!  They are picking your pockets!

 

The first problem is the gusher of deficit dollars going overseas whether it is for oil, manufactured goods or US…

Freedom's Phoenix

Freedom’s Phoenix

 

From the ashes of decline, shall rise, a great phoenix

On the wings of American exceptionalism

A symbol of  “We the people”, republicanism

 

The founding fathers in their wisdom did greatly fear

Two very dangerous things, that more than any other,

A standing army or central bank, liberty would smother

 

The Constitution, Article 1 and the laws of the land

Were intended to protect the people from…

Obama the Illusionist

Obama the Illusionist

 

The release of Obama’s birth certificate was just another hat trick, more smoke and mirrors.  First of all, it came from a document that Hawaiian officials released and that copy is in the hands of the White House.  The online copy is a purported electronic scan of that and more than likely was enhanced for legibility.  Of course any enhancement may be innocent in itself or by design used to cover up changes.  The point is, there probably are no…

Who Has War Powers?

 

Our Constitution provides that the Congress make declarations of war or define and punish international offenses, in Article. I. Section. 8. “The Congress shall have Power to declare War, grant letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water; To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations; To raise and support Armies; To provide and maintain a…

Where Do You Stand On Libya?

Where Do You Stand On Libya?

 

Whether you are against Muammar Qadhafi and his regime or not, it must be recognized that enforcing a no fly zone over Libya is tantamount to a declaration of war.  Both Admiral Mullen and Defense Secretary Gates have acknowledged that to enforce a no fly zone would require the destruction of Libyan air defense capabilities, amounting to an attack on Libya, a sovereign state that has not attacked the US and a country where the U.S. has very little…

The Onslaught Continues

The Onslaught Continues

 

The battle to reduce our society to an anything goes state, is ramping up.  The progressive left has been failing on air and on the wide screen.  Witness the fact that there are nearly 500 TV Channels to choose from if you had Cable and/or Satellite TV.  If they were really good at what they did, the new comers would have a hard time getting a foothold.  Look a little further to talk radio, the only thing the liberals set on fire was the production…

Take The Town Halls To Washington

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
