You Voted Democrat???? Pick Your Reason!!!!




Pick Your Reason


When your friends can't explain why they voted for Democrats, give them this list. They can then pick a reason

10. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

8. I voted Democrat because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

7. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

5. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies through abortion so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

4. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass it's unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view.

Great Boss explaining Obama's New Economy!!!




A Lay-off letter from an excellent boss!

Dear Employees:

As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead.

This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.

So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found sixty 'Obama' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem.. They voted for change...... I gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic..

Turning the tide - One Vote at a Time! (visit us on Facebook!)





I truly love this country - there, I said it! And isn't it amazing how indoctrinated we have become by the "main-stream media" that to say this demonstrates that we're racist, or sexist, or homophobic, or we resort to violence, or that we are dangerous? But we never get the opportunity to say our side of the story, or the fringe element (and there is a fringe in every group) is somehow determined to be the representative of what we believe, feel, or act. I watched demonstrations from the right and left in the past couple days, and it is night and day on how the groups handle themselves, and how the media handle the coverage - it's a shame, but that doesn't mean you don't keep trying, and I believe that's happening, through social networking like facebook, through virtual marches, through blogs, and through our voices, as the main media outlets have continued to prevent all sides from speaking. Recently, there have been a spate of protests at Conservative speaker presentations, and instead of the uproar, that we receive when someone criticizes someone from the left (such as President Obama - with "you lie" - which actually was the truth, as the bill was changed in the next week, but none of us heard that from the media) - as protesters don't have a right to speak, these protestors against Coulter and Rove, et. al., were cheered on by the media. But we're seeing some "change," as we talk, and listen to those who supported Obama and his plans, privately- away from cameras, are having doubts about this process. With the passage of Obamacare, in our workplaces there were no cheering as there was for his election, with some even saying, they didn't want to talk about it. Maybe we're seeing the first signs, of change we can all believe in. And it starts in November 2010, and the end of this nightmare in 2012!

The Country is Coming Together (We all hate Obama)





Thank you, Chosen One, for bringing the country together. As of the latest polls, a majority of the country will not vote for you again. And yet, you believe you know better than us, pushing legislation that none of us want, such as Cap and Trade, the faux "Jobs Bill," and of course, Obama-Care. People, it's time to stand and take down this tyrant - November 2010 can't come fast enough. With that, and a people's referendum for impeachment would be a nice start. NJ, Virginia, and Mass elections showed what can happen when people stand up, remove their shackles and lead. At the latest CPAC convention, lots of excitement, and Obama and his cronies awoke the sleeping giant, and it's ticked. Good speeches by everyone, but the two best were Glen Beck's and Ron Paul's - click the link for Paul's new video featuring the anthem for our revolution. Now, let's take back what's ours!!!!

Who is Obama???




*_Article from Alan Caruba from Wall Street Journal_*

"I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he's led a kind of
make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened
because at some point early on somebody or some group took a look at
this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an
exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a
life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in
the White House.

In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry. Who
else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of 45? "Dreams
of My Father" was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old. The
"Audacity of Hope" followed in 2006. If indeed, he did write them
himself. There are some who think that his mentor and friend, Bill
Ayers, a man who calls himself a "communist with a small 'c'" was the
real author.

His political skills consisted of rarely voting on anything that might
be deemed controversial. He went from a legislator in the Illinois
legislature to the Senator from that state because he had the good
fortune of having Mayor Daley's formidable political machine at his
disposal.

He was in the U.S. Senate so briefly that his bid for the presidency
was either an act of astonishing self-confidence or part of some greater
game plan that had been determined before he first stepped foot in the
Capital. How, many must wonder, was he selected to be a 2004 keynote
speaker at the Democrat convention that nominated John Kerry when
virtually no one had ever even heard of him before?

He outmaneuvered Hillary Clinton in primaries. He took Iowa by storm. A
charming young man, an anomaly in the state with a very small black
population, he oozed "cool" in a place where agriculture was the
antithesis of cool. He dazzled the locals. And he had an army of
volunteers drawn to a charisma that hid any real substance.

And then he had the great good fortune of having the Republicans select
one of the most inept candidates for the presidency since Bob Dole. And
then John McCain did something crazy. He picked Sarah Palin, an unknown
female governor from the very distant state of Alaska . It was a ticket
that was reminiscent of 1984's Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro and
they went down to defeat.

The mainstream political media fell in love with him. It was a
schoolgirl crush with febrile commentators like Chris Mathews swooning
then and now over the man. The venom directed against McCain and, in
particular, Palin, was extraordinary.

Now, nearly a full year into his first term, all of those gilded years
leading up to the White House have left him unprepared to be President.
Left to his own instincts, he has a talent for saying the wrong thing at
the wrong time. It swiftly became a joke that he could not deliver even
the briefest of statements without the ever-present Tele-Prompters.

Far worse, however, is his capacity to want to "wish away" some
terrible realities, not the least of which is the Islamist intention to
destroy America and enslave the West. Any student of history knows how
swiftly Islam initially spread. It knocked on the doors of Europe ,
having gained a foothold in Spain .

The great crowds that greeted him at home or on his campaign "world
tour" were no substitute for having even the slightest grasp of history
and the reality of a world filled with really bad people with really bad
intentions..

Oddly and perhaps even inevitably, his political experience, a
cakewalk, has positioned him to destroy the Democrat Party's hold on
power in Congress because in the end it was never about the Party. It
was always about his communist ideology, learned at an early age from
family, mentors, college professors, and extreme leftist friends and
colleagues.

Obama is a man who could deliver a snap judgment about a Boston police
officer who arrested an "obstreperous" Harvard professor-friend, but
would warn Americans against "jumping to conclusions" about a mass
murderer at Fort Hood who shouted "Allahu Akbar." The absurdity of that
was lost on no one. He has since compounded this by calling the
Christmas bomber "an isolated extremist" only to have to admit a day or
two later that he was part of an al Qaeda plot.

He is a man who could strive to close down our detention facility at
Guantanamo even though those released were known to have returned to the
battlefield against America . He could even instruct his Attorney
General to afford the perpetrator of 9/11 a civil trial when no one else
would ever even consider such an obscenity. And he is a man who could
wait three days before having anything to say about the perpetrator of
yet another terrorist attack on Americans and then have to elaborate on
his remarks the following day because his first statement was so lame.

The pattern repeats itself. He either blames any problem on the Bush
administration or he naively seeks to wish away the truth.

Knock, knock. Anyone home? Anyone there? Barack Obama exists only as
the sock puppet of his handlers, of the people who have maneuvered and
manufactured this pathetic individual's life.

When anyone else would quickly and easily produce a birth certificate,
this man has spent over a million dollars to deny access to his.. Most
other documents, the paper trail we all leave in our wake, have been
sequestered from review. He has lived a make-believe life whose true
facts remain hidden.

We laugh at the ventriloquist's dummy, but what do you do when the
dummy is President of the United States of America?

Anti-Tea Party Laundering System by the Democrats


(From their site, obviously they're getting their hopes up)


From our good friends at Fox News - amazing what democratic activists will stoop to, but if we did this, it would be a front page story:

Joseph Abrams

Anti-Tea Party Web Site Part of Scheme to Funnel Funds

A new Web site targeting the tea parties is a part of a complex network of money flowing from the mountainous coffers of the country's biggest labor unions and trickling slowly into political slush funds for Democratic activists.


A seemingly grassroots organization that's mounted an online campaign to counter the tea party movement is actually the front end of an elaborate scheme that funnels funds -- including sizable labor union contributions -- through the offices of a prominent Democratic party lawyer.

A Web site popped up in January dedicated to preventing the tea party's "radical" and "dangerous" ideas from "gaining legislative traction," targeting GOP candidates in Illinois for the firing squad.

"This movement is a fad," proclaims TheTeaPartyIsOver.org, which was established by the American Public Policy Center (APPC), a D.C.-based campaign shop that few people have ever heard of.

But a close look reveals the APPC's place in a complex network of money flowing from the mountainous coffers of the country's biggest labor unions into political slush funds for Democratic activists.

Here's how it works: What appears like a local groundswell is in fact the creation of two men -- Craig Varoga and George Rakis, Democratic Party strategists who have set up a number of so-called 527 groups, the non-profit election organizations that hammer on contentious issues (think Swift Boats, for example).

Varoga and Rakis keep a central mailing address in Washington, pulling in soft money contributions from unions and other well-padded sources to engage in what amounts to a legal laundering system. The money -- tens of millions of dollars -- gets circulated around to different states by the 527s, which pay for TV ads, Internet campaigns and lobbyist salaries, all while keeping the hands of the unions clean -- for the most part.

The system helps hide the true sources of funding, giving the appearance of locally bred opposition in states from Oklahoma to New Jersey, or in the case of the Tea Party Web site, in Illinois.

And this whitewash is entirely legal, say election law experts, who told FoxNews.com that this arrangement more or less the norm in Washington.

"It's not illegal but it is, I think, dishonest on the part of the organizations," said Paul Ryan, a legal counsel at the Campaign Legal Center. "And there's a reason they do it: they know voters don't like outsiders coming in to sway the vote."

Calls and e-mails to the Maryland-based consultant firm Independent Strategies, run by Varoga and Rakis, were not returned.

Outside of that firm, the center of their activity appears to be a single office in Southeast D.C. -- 300 M Street, Suite 1102 -- which plays host to a sprawling political shell game they have established.

Public records show at least seven political shops listed in Suite 1102, most of which are essentially clones of one another, but all of which have offered money -- from measly thousands to game-changing millions -- in state-level elections across the country:

-The American Public Policy Committee Donations | IRS forms
-Patriot Majority Donations | IRS forms
-Citizens for Progress Donations | IRS forms
-Oklahoma Freedom Fund Donations | IRS forms
-Mid Atlantic Leadership Fund Donations | IRS forms
-Public Security Now Donations | IRS forms
-Pioneer Majority Donations | IRS forms
-Bluegrass Freedom Fund Donations | IRS forms

The APPC, which developed the anti-tea party ads, has gotten all of its money for 2010 from Patriot Majority and from Citizens for Progress, which is also called Patriot Majority West.

Patriot Majority West sent them $25,000 in January, and Patriot Majority added another $5,000. The groups, both run by Varoga and Rakis, also swap hundreds of thousands of dollars between themselves, money often buttressed by gifts from Patriot Majority Midwest, seen above as the Oklahoma Freedom Fund.

The confusing naming system is intentional, say election law experts, who generally disapprove of the practice.

"I do take issue with and have long complained about groups that shield particular special interests with innocuous-sounding names like ... 'Americans for America,'" said Ryan. "That type of naming of an organization, I believe, is specifically intended to obscure the true sources of funding of special interest groups behind political activity."

These three Patriot Majority groups also send checks to Independent Strategies, the strategy firm run by Varoga and Rakis. And some of the 527s have sent money to VR Strategies, another firm run in part by and named after Varoga.

The most recent backers of the Patriot Majority and Patriot Majority West, which helped fund the APPC and thus the Tea Party site, form a veritable Who's Who of the country's top labor unions: the Service Employees International Union, Change to Win, the Communications Workers of America, the National Education Association, the Teamsters Union, the United Food & Commercial Workers Union and others besides.

But by far the largest donations have come from a collection of unionized government workers, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) -- which in 2008 alone donated $5.8 million to Patriot Majority and another $4.1 million to Patriot Majority Midwest.

Using this arrangement, Varoga and Rakis are managing what NPR called a "never-ending pot of union money" that they dispense among the 527s they run, which in turn pay for ads in hotly contested election districts.

That means that taxpayer dollars, sent up as union dues, have been going to fund a host of Democratic causes and help quash the tea party movement.

What's more, Varoga and Rakis are not actually present in Suite 1102. That is the office of their lawyer, Joseph Sandler, a longtime general counsel to the Democratic National Committee.

Sandler, whose firm and trust account raked in over $500,000 in Democratic party money in 2009 alone, told Fox News that there was nothing irregular in their setup.

"That's common practice," said Sandler, a renowned expert on election law who served as general counsel to the Democratic National Committee until February 2009, and whose firm, Sandler Reiff & Young, continues to work for both the Democratic party and numerous left-wing 527 groups.

Sandler noted that political committees and groups are often run by multiple people and don't have a central office, but need a place where they can be in ongoing contact with the IRS and other federal agencies that track election funds.

"It's very common for a law firm to give their address ... as the official address for the organization where correspondence can be received," he said.

It has the effect of confusing the ultimate sources of election funding, but also serves an important practical end, say election law experts.

"As a practical matter there's not a huge universe of lawyers in the United States that know political law all that well and most of them are here in D.C., said Ryan, of the Campaign Legal Center. "It's not uncommon for political organizations to be using lawyers in D.C. or starters, even if they're all over the country."

It is not clear whether TheTeaPartyIsOver.org is the start of a larger campaign run by Varoga and Rakis to target tea party activists. Additional attempts to reach Varoga at a California number were unsuccessful. A staffer answering the phone in Varoga's Oakland office last week told FoxNews.com that he was unavailable for comment and hung up.

Big Government's Cronies

Thanks to John Stossel for fighting the good fight - if you get a chance, I recommend highly viewing the Stossel program on Fox Business channel Thursday nights - we need more government watchdogs, like Stossel, and then we need to get involved ourselves - we took our eyes off the process, and the kool-aid drinkers took over - look what you have today, case closed - so vote, or shut up!!!

State of Disunion




Libertarians respond to State of the Union addressWASHINGTON - Libertarian Party (LP) Chairman William Redpath issued the following statement today in response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address:"Tonight's speech was a reminder that, for decades, the policies of Republicans and Democrats alike have failed. Libertarians are asking people to take matters into their own hands. Instead of just complaining, we're encouraging ordinary Americans to step up and run for Congress on the Libertarian Party ballot line."I can say exactly the same thing about President Obama's speech tonight that I said about George W. Bush's State of the Union speech in January 2008: 'Tonight's State of the Union address went much as expected. Instead of calling for a more limited role of the federal government in American society, the President laid out plans that would only increase the government's intervention into the realm of economics, health care, education and foreign policy.'"I am weary of the President's unspoken premise that only government--indeed, only the federal government--can accomplish good in our society."President Obama seems to be totally blind to the concept that government can cause problems rather than solve them. His speech was filled with 'More': more handouts, more spending, more programs, more bailouts, more regulations. We Libertarians want less government, not more."Not to be outmatched by the Democrats, the Republican Party conveyed its lack of seriousness in addressing this nation's government spending problems by having Bob McDonnell, Virginia Governor for eleven (11) days, deliver its rebuttal to the President. If they were really serious about addressing the dire fiscal circumstances of this nation, they would have had Paul Ryan, a six-term congressman from Wisconsin, who has proposed the most serious plan of anyone in the two older parties to keep us from going off a fiscal cliff."Last week, Alan Auerbach, Professor of Economics and Law at UC Berkeley and US government fiscal policy expert, said that the Democratic and Republican parties are in a 'death embrace' with their government spending. The only political party that is rationally and forthrightly addressing the need to cut government spending and end our culture of ever expanding entitlements is the Libertarian Party."As Americans lose hope in Obama, we Libertarians are warning voters against running back to the Republicans who got us into such big messes in the first place. Republicans started the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Republicans made the false intellectual case for bailing out banks and car companies. Republicans argued that deficits don't matter. Republicans gave us the giant Medicare expansion bill."The President's suggestion of a 'spending freeze' was especially ludicrous and insulting to the intelligence of Americans. The amounts involved are minuscule, and Congress won't accept them anyway. Will Obama sign the spending bills that ignore his 'freeze'? You bet he will. Instead, the President should demand across-the-board cuts in all areas, including entitlements."The President talked a lot about jobs. Unfortunately, the policies he supports are responsible for most of the unemployment we see today. High taxes, minimum wage laws, hiring regulations, firing regulations, mandatory unemployment benefits, and other government interference make it much more difficult for businesses to hire and keep employees. As expected, the President's prescription is to increase the dosage of this government poison."While our nation is declining dangerously right now, a turnaround could be straightforward and simple with steps like these: 1. Bring our troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan; 2. Stop rewarding failed companies with bailouts; 3. Cut taxes and spending and let the free market work."Finally, on the matter of political rhetoric, I call upon the two older parties to stop spoon feeding politics to the American people as if we are a bunch of overgrown children. These are difficult times that call for more than rhetorical flourish or positioning a group of diverse people around a politician. Older party politicians need to be specific about their proposed policies, as Libertarians are."And, I know I'm probably just wasting electrons, but can't we go back to the days in which the President sent a copy of his speech to Congress and left it at that. The speech last night took 1/7000th of an entire year. I think the vast majority of the American people would agree that we have better ways to spend our time."William Redpath has served as the Chairman of the Libertarian Party since 2006.For more information, or to arrange an interview, call LP Executive Director Wes Benedict at 202-333-0008 ext. 222.The LP is America's third-largest political party, founded in 1971. The Libertarian Party stands for free markets and civil liberties. You can find more information on the Libertarian Party at our website.

Avatar is Great and Libertarian




I knew it - there had to be a reason that I enjoyed Avatar (besides the CGI, Cameron behind the controls, the 3D, and everything else) - I recommend the film highly!!! Interesting article by Stephan Kinsella from our friends at the Ludwig Von Mises Institute:

Conservative Libertarianism's Comeback



Excellent article by David Paul Kuhn, over at Real Clear Politics (if you haven't check out this site, you need to, as you keep up on what's happening to this government, and this country):

Conservative Libertarianism's Comeback

Great points made, demonstrating that Americans are usually right of center, and President Obama was able to present himself to his base as the alternative to Bush - unfortunately, the Bush Administration made it too easy for him, as he still is attacking the ghosts of the past government, and now he'll have to stand on his own - but with the virtually free pass from the "drive-by" media, slowly the people are realizing that they participated in oldest game in the book, politics at it's worst, as a political ponzai scheme.

Now, it's your time to take back government - it's no longer the days of "Ask not what your government can do for you..." it's time to do for ourselves, and government needs to get out of the way!!!
