Napolitano New Years Blunder

31 12 2010

What the heck is wrong with the Obama administration?

I’m hoping that 2011 will give us some hard evidence in order to Impeach the worst president in modern history. Then we can clean out his Rats nest of Marxist appointees that seem to only help the enemies of the USA.

I got back to the house late this morning and as my habit, I turned on Fox News. It’s normal in my home to have Fox playing in the background during the day as I do my re-hab work, PC work, and all-around general chores. Within 30 second after turning on the TV, Fox had a story about Janet Napolitano, head of Homeland Security. She, in her infinite wisdom (major sarcasm)… is spending her New Years Eve in Afghanistan because there are some US Border Patrol Agents helping to train people at the AfPak border. Meanwhile, citizens in the USA are forced to keep out Illegals on our very own Southern border. See Video below…

Am I the only one that thinks this is another slap-in-the-face of the American people? Think about it  The head of Homeland Security is in Afghanistan helping to protect their border. What about our damn border right here at home?

A huge thank you goes out to the gentlemen in the video. They are doing the job that HOMELAND SECURITY is supposed to do. Instead, that Dept is busy protecting the borders of AFGHANISTAN. I’m beyond angry about this and it is taking every ounce of willpower to stay away from dropping ‘F’ bombs everywhere.

This is more proof that it is WE THE PEOPLE that are going to have to save this country. May God help us!

Gay Political Party

29 12 2010

There has been a lot of talk on the blogs lately about Gay issues. Hell, just look back over the last 2 weeks of my postings and you will see how it’s even effected me.

So just for the record, I want to take another stab at this issue, and then I promise to move on to other subjects. This one riles me up so much because it’s a big issue if you still believe in morality.

M-o-r-a-l-i-t-y, remember what that is? Here’s a few reminders…

Morality is concern with the distinction between good and evil or right and wrong; right or good conduct; ethical motive: motivation based on ideas of right and wrong

Morality (from the Latin moralitas “manner, character, proper behavior”) is a system of conduct and ethics that is virtuous. It can also be used in regard to sexual matters and chastity. …

moral – concerned with principles of right and wrong or conforming to standards of behavior and character based on those principles; “moral sense”; “a moral scrutiny”; “a moral lesson”; “a moral quandary”; “moral convictions”; “a moral life”

Lately there have been quite a few gay issues getting ink on other blogs and with the comments always end up the same predictable way. The pro-gay side will use any argument to try to bolster their position except for one… the morality part of the equation. Once in a while someone will try to use the moral argument, but always goes down in flames, so it’s not used very often as a tactic for the pro-gay crowd. They don’t use it because they know it’s the one argument that won’t hold water.

I wanted to briefly write about this tonight mostly due to an article I read a few hours ago about how a gay conservative group had been invited to this years CPAC convention. Some of the regular attendees heard about this and politely backed out from attending this year. The Family Research Council is just one of those opting out, and I want to publicly say that I appreciate them for their move.

Of course this leads back to politics, like everything eventually does, but the politics of an issue like this could put Conservative-politics in a very tricky place. Here’s why… If the GOP decides to throw open the doors and welcome the gay agenda, then the GOP will never get another vote from me (and a few million just like me). That then leaves me with finding another party that I feel has a reasonable chance of winning. As I write this there are only two parties that get elected in this country, the Democrats and Republicans. They control the money and the power. The good news is that a viable 3rd party may be about to make a major move. I welcome the formation of the Tea-Party as an honest and logical choice for people like me that can no longer side with the GOP because the GOP has lost it’s heart when it comes to Conservative issues. However, if the Tea-Party decides to be another Conservative-Lite Party then we Conservatives are in BIG trouble. Hell, the whole country will be in BIG trouble.

Here comes the part I hate… what the hell do we do? I refuse to put aside my morals when it comes to the gay agenda and the abortion agenda, and at one time I thought the GOP agreed and sided with me. Now it seems that it no longer cares about standing up for whats right and simply wants to placate real Conservatives simply for our money and our votes.

So do we go with a new, more Conservative party, knowing that it will mean that the Dems re-gain control for at least another 10 years while this new party can grow big enough to challenge the Dems. Or do we suck-it up and continue with voting for those that only agree with some of our ideals?

I can only speak for me, but I cannot just throw away my Morals like an old worn-out pair of shoes. Morality is what seperates us humans from animals.

God help us!

Revealing Huffpost DADT Post

28 12 2010
During the recent debate concerning DADT being repealed, I once again made the mistake of reading comments at the Huffington Post to see if anyone there really understands what is at stake. Prior to the ruling to repeal, progressives and their Gay friends were making heart-felt arguments about how they just wanted equality while serving their country, blah, blah, blah.
Then things changed when it was announced that the Senate had indeed repealed DADT and now Gays would be allowed to serve while being open about their sexual preferences. (next I expect pedophiles are going to want equal rights too) Below is just one short exchange that probably reflects the reality of how Gays feel about this. The pretense of wanting equality is gone!

Polar Bears Extinction

27 12 2010

 You gotta love this story….

 The “Natural Resources Defense Council” has been trying to re-ignite the Global Warming scare along with every other Tree-Hugger organization because the economy has hit them hard in the bank-account. Each Organization is trying to find the magic-wand that will get people to start using their charge-cards again and throw some money their way. The NRDC has been using a rather unique idea that is being adopted by most of the other organizations during these hard times. They have adopted the technique I like to call… “Lying”.

First, look at the partial screen-shot below copied from their very own website just 4 days ago. NRDC.ORG is trying to raise money with this bogus claim on their website.

Keep in mind they are talking about 40 years from now while you read the very short story below the NRDC screen-shot.

Enjoy!

Natural Resources Defense Council

————————————————————————————

The following report came out on Christmas Eve.

Politico reports:

FWS (Fish and Wildlife Service) Director Rowan Gould said the 2008 “threatened” listing was made “following careful analysis of the best scientific information, as required by the ESA.”

At the time, the service determined the bears weren’t danger of extinction, so did not warrant the “endangered” status. The bears were listed as “threatened” because they face serious threats from projected decline in its sea ice habitat due to global warming would result in them likely being in danger of extinction in the foreseeable future.

FWS is “confident it was and is the appropriate status,” Gould said.

Listing the polar bear as “endangered” as a result of global warming could open the door to using the Endangered Species Act to regulate greenhouse gases, an outcome the Obama administration has opposed.

You just can’t make this stuff up!

Sad Day UPDATE: DADT

19 12 2010

Here are the RINOS that helped to repeal DADT. Please put them on your hit-list.

Six Republicans initially crossed the aisle to vote against the policy: Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and George Voinovich (R-Ohio). … In the first procedural vote on Saturday morning, 63 senators voted in favor of the bill and 33 against. In the final passage, Sens. John Ensign (R-Nev.) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.) switched their vote to “aye,” despite initially voting against moving forward with the bill.

Burr is my Senator�and it sickens me! With a show of hands, how many of you would like to slap Murkowski across her smug mouth?

Will get the full list of Dems that voted for it next.

A Sad Day For USA

18 12 2010

I said I was going to lay off the serious stuff until after Christmas yet here I am about to comment on something very, very, sad. However, I’m not going to apologize because I feel compelled to talk about this issue even if briefly.

Today our immoral politicians in the Senate passed the repeal of thecontroversial DODT (Don’t Ask Don’t Tell).

Following this story has been another eye opening experience for me, but not one bit surprising. The studies they didthat askedmilitary members how they felt about the issue were unscientific and rigged to assure the outcome.

If the front line fighting forces had been polled this whole thing would have gone a completely different way, but they were not asked. I had the pleasure to spend a few hours with some of our military members that are presently serving in Afghanistan and they said they don’t know anyone, in any unit in Afghanistan, that was sked about the issue. And to top it off they said that if they had been polled they felt certain that a huge majority would have voted NO simply because this subject does come up in conversations and they know how their fellow Patriots feel about the issue.

Ok, I’m going to stop here because I’m getting upset and it will come out in my writing. The only left to do for now is, get hold of the list of those that voted for this repeal and make them pay dearly for it.

God, please forgive them for they know NOT what they do.

Staying Warm By The Fire

13 12 2010

For those of you that may be a little bit cold!





Frozen In

13 12 2010

Man is it cold!

We were supposed to get some snow flurries last night. Instead we got six inches. Now the only thing I want for Christmas is…. Global Warming!

Did any of you catch Sarah Palins Alaska last night? I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Well, sort of. I didn’t like the part where Kate Gosselin whined like a little spoiled brat from the moment she stepped off the float plane. The parts I liked had to do with Sarah and her family.

I always enjoy seeing how comfortable she and her kids are around firearms. And I enjoyed how brave Sarah was when she shot the shot-gun with the 3″ Magnum shells. I can tell you from experience that she endured a nice kick from them and probably had a bruised shoulder from it. I also enjoyed the way her Dad taught the kids about nature. I especially enjoyed what Todd did on the camping trip… stayed away from the whiney Kate and stuck to fishing (even though he wasn’t catching anything), that’s a smart man!

I have enjoyed all the installments of the show so far, with the exception of last night, but it did give me an idea. How about we petition TLC to promote one more camping trip with the Palins. This time however, Obama and Michele get to go!!! LOL…..

Ok, enough of the wishful thinking.

The Revolution Has Begun Day 2

9 12 2010

I started writing this post about 20 minutes before Glenn Becks show came on (12/09/01). I was going to write this, post it, then sit down to eat dinner with my wife because Glenns show today was supposed to be uplifting. So the idea was that we could watch his program while eating. Then his show started and it is NOT what was supposed to be on. Instead we are getting a message from Glenn that the Revolution has begun. Almost every word written below was written prior to his show coming on. I was intending to end my post by announcing to my readers that I will be taking a break until after the first of the year. This changes everything. DAY TWO CONTINUES AT BOTTOM.

It’s been a very trying year here on the homestead so the wife and I decided to get away for a few days. The trip did wonders for me, but I’m now more worried for our country than I was a week ago. Our little trip was taken over a 3 state area and included quite a few really corny tourist traps. And I want to say publicly, thank God for tourist traps.

We stuck to no schedule and changed our directions twice when we would run into a stand full of tourist brochures in a Hotel lobby and found something that appealed to us. And of course we ended up in Outlet Centers everywhere we went (boring), but the wife did get most of her Christmas shopping done and my bank account was drained.

As mentioned in the beginning, we went to a lot of different tourist traps. Thankfully right now is NOT a busy time for tourist traps, except the Outlet Stores, which made the trip so much nicer. The one thing I had not expected was how intimate some of these places can be when you are the only two people in the place. This intimacy allowed us the opportunity to meet a lot of the store owners because they have to get rid of their Help for the season, leaving the businesses completely in the hands of the owners. One thing that always came up in our conversations was the economy and politics. I lost count on how many eye-rolls this caused the wife to pull-off when she didn’t think I was looking.

Anyway, using a very un-scientific method of counting heads it seems that many small business owners have walked away from both the Democrat and Republican party and have gone Independent. It seemed as if everyone had the very same story… “My family has been {Democrat or Republican} for the last 1,000 years (yes I know its a slight exageration)”. Everyone we talked to was pretty well disgusted with our government and the current crop of politicians running the country. What shocked me was how few of these people we talked to knew how bad things really are. At times I felt like I was a Political Science Professor talking to these people because they had not heard about some of things I would bring up. It seems that these businesses that rely on tourism dollars stay so busy trying to stay afloat that they don’t have time to watch Glenn Beck at 5:00 or any serious news programs. Most of these people are “Doers” not “Thinkers”. I’m not trying to belittle them, in fact I admire them. Instead of arguing point by point about the validity of an argument, they decide what they want to do… and then by God they go to it getting it done. These are the backbone of this country. To be continued…

Here it is Day Two. The world is still spinning and the Dogs still need to be fed, and everything is about the same as it was yesterday. Some of you could probably tell that I panicked when I heard Beck yesterday pronounce that the ‘Revolution had begun’. I did, and now I understand why. After a few days on the road clearing my head I had come back thinking clearly again, and I was hoping to keep that feeling going right on through to the New Year. Keeping that feeling going was going to require me to stop blogging for a few weeks, unplug my PC and promise myself to NOT watch any TV News or listen to any Talk Radio. Well that didn’t happen! My first day back I was going to watch Beck because his show was supposed to be an uplifting one, so I thought it might be a good idea to stop watching him right after a positive show. Well that didn’t happen either. Instead he did what he is very good at, and laid down the truth. The Revolution truly has begun, but it didn’t start yesterday.

My point is that I I’m back in the fight! There is no dodging. There is no resting. There is no taking a break. We have a country to save!!!

The cold-steel truth is… we are in a war for our survival, and only the strong, and informed, will survive. What I did on my little 4 day jaunt is not important, what we do from here forward is!

Although its tempting to put all of this in the back of your minds because Christmas is coming up, I beg all of you to NOT lose focus. I almost did and I’m very embarrassed to admit it.

We must fight for our country. More importantly, we must win!

Our $13 Trillion National Debt

4 12 2010

It wasn’t very long ago that we only talked in Billions whenever the National Debt was talked about. Now we have a new norm as we consider our Debt, we now count it byTRILLIONSof Dollars.

I have copied some ideas that have been floating around the internet over the last week, so we can once again put the number Trillion into perspective. This is what our government has done to us…

$13 trillion. That’s roughly the current size of the U.S. national debt. And it continues to grow every second. 

A Trillion Seconds Worth of Distance Run
Can you guess how many days it takes for a trillion seconds to pass? If you said, “Let me go get my calculator,” you’re on the right track. I’ll give you a hint: Each 24-hour day is worth 86,400 seconds. That’s a huge number! But it’s no where near a trillion.   

  • A million seconds is 13 days.
  • A billion seconds is 31 years.
  • A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.

If you can believe it, a trillion seconds ago, modern humans were yet to exist, and Neanderthals stalked the plains of Europe.

Astronomically Large
Outside on a clear night, you can see about two thousand stars with the naked eye, according to the astronomy site A Bright Spot Opposite the Sun. With $1 trillion, you could buy all of those stars if each cost $500 million. 

Oh the Places They Will Go
A brand new Porsche 911 is a pretty luxurious purchase. Only the truly wealthy can afford to plunk down $88,800 on a car that fits two people and a weekend bag. But with a trillion dollars, in addition to a diploma you could give a set of keys to every graduating high school student in the country — for the next four years!

The 50 Richest People in the Room
Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, the entire Walton family — these are just a few of the names that top Forbes’ annual report on the richest people in the world. Yet none of them will ever be worth a trillion dollars. In fact, if you put the 50 richest billionaires in a room, their combined net worth would barely pass $1 trillion. 

Not Even the Biggest Blue-Chips
Let’s go back to how much purchasing power $1 trillion will give you. For that amount of money, you could buy every share of ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM) — and still have more than $700 billion to spend buying up every share of… 

  • Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) — $233.10 billion
  • Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) — $204.29 billion
  • Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A) — $197.89 billion
  • Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT) — $181.40 billion

Now multiply by 13. Can you wrap your brain around that?

If we don’t FORCE our government to take some drastic measures, our children and grandchildren will be living in a 3rd World Country in less than 20 years. God help us!
