The Polls

We all know that the polls reflecting American views on ObamaCare, Stimulus II, etc., were against the imposition of these pieces of crap,..err,..legislation. The Obama administration, through the Czar of Propaganda (that be Gibbs) and from the President himself, denied following the polls.

Well,..... following the polls and basing decisons off of them are two different things. Nobody can say Obama used the polls to make decisions,...no sir, he sure didn't do that. He made decisions against the wishes of the American people. I hope everyone remembers that 94 days from now, and then again in November 2012!

But if he ain't following the polls then why does the White house host Wednesday night meetings, at 8:00 pm EST, to discuss the latest polling data? Well, the answer is obvious,...to develop a propaganda strategy to counter the polls.

Obama is on pace to double the amount of spending Bush did for polls. In that last 18 months Obama has spent $4.5 million on polls. In Bush's first 24 months, his total expednitire for polls was $3.1 million. Obama is on pace to spend a total of $6 million his first 24 months.

Chrysler--A Very Dirty Story

Sooner or later it will all come to light! This could be a scandal of epic proportions and one that makes Nixon's Watergate or Clinton 's Monica Lewinsky affair pale by comparison. Why was there neither rhyme nor reason as to which dealerships of the Chrysler Corporation were to be closed?

Roll the clock back to the weeks just before Chrysler declared bankruptcy. Chrysler, like GM, was in dire financial straits and federal government "graciously" offered to "buy the company" and keep them out of bankruptcy and "save jobs."

Chrysler was, in the words of Obama and his administration, "Too big to fail," same story with GM.

The feds organized their "Automotive Task Force" to fix Chrysler and GM. Obama, in an act that is 100% unconstitutional, appointed a guy named Steve Rattner to be the White House's official Car Czar - literally, that's what his title is.

Rattner is the liaison between Obama, Chrysler, and GM. Initially, the national media reported that Chrysler 'had made this list of dealerships'. Not true!

The Washington Examiner, Newsmax, Fox News and a host of other news agencies discovered that the list of dealerships was put together by the "Automotive Task Force" headed by no one other than Mr. Steve Rattner.

Now the plot thickens.

Remember earlier we said that there was neither rhyme nor reason why certain dealerships were closed? Actually there's a very interesting pattern as to who was closed down. Again, on May 27, 2009, The Washington Examiner and Newsmax exposed
the connection. Amazingly, of the 789 dealerships closed by the federal government,
788 had donated money, exclusively to Republican political causes, while contributing nothing to Democratic political causes. The only "Democratic" dealership on the list was found to have donated $7,700 to Hillary's campaign, and a bit over $2,000 to John Edwards. This same dealership, reportedly, also gave $200.00 to Obama's campaign.

Does that seem a little odd to you?

Steve Rattner is the guy who put the list together. Well, he happens to be married to a Maureen White. Maureen happens to be the former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee. As such, she has access to campaign donation records from everyone in the nation- Republican or Democrat. But of course, this is just a wacky "coincidence," we're certain.

Then comes another really wacky "coincidence." On that list of dealerships being closed down, a weird thing happened in Arkansas , North Louisiana, and Southern Missouri . It seems that Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff, Mack McClarty, owns a chain of dealership in that region, partnered with a fellow by the
name of Robert Johnson. Johnson happens to be founder of Black Entertainment Television and was a huge Obama supporter and financier. These guys own a half dozen Chrysler stores under the company title of RLJ-McClarty-Landers. Interestingly, none of their dealerships were ordered closed - not one!

While all of their competing Chrysler/Dodge and Jeep dealership were! Eight dealerships located near the dealerships owned by McClarty and Johnson were ordered shut down. Thus by pure luck, these two major Obama supporters now have virtual monopoly on Chrysler sales in their zone.

Isn't that amazing?

Go look in The Washington Examiner, the story's there, and it's in a dozen or so other web-based news organizations; this isn't being made up.

Now if you thought Chrysler was owned by Fiat, you are mistaken. Under the federal court ruling, 65% of Chrysler is now owned by the federal government and the United Auto Workers union! Fiat owns 20%. The other 15% is still privately owned and presumably will be traded on the stock market. Obama smiles and says he doesn't want to run the auto industry.

As horrifying as this is to comprehend, and being as how this used to be the United States of America , it would appear that the president has the power to destroy private businesses and eliminate upwards of 100,000 jobs just because they don't agree with his political agenda. This is Nazi Germany stuff, and it's happening right here, right now, in our back yard.

There are voices in Washington demanding an explanation, but the "Automotive Task Force" has released no information to the public or to any of the senators demanding answers for what has been done.

Keep your ear to the ground for more on this story. If you've ever wanted to make a difference about anything in your life, get on the phone to your national senator or representative in the House and demand an investigation into this.

Benjamin Franklin had it right when he said, "All that's necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Car Czar No More

An amazing thing happened as this story was going to press. Obama's Car Czar, Steve Rattner, resigned on July 13 and was promptly replaced by former steel workers union boss Ron Bloom. According to CBS News, Rattner left "to return to private life and spend time with his family."

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said, "I hope that he takes another opportunity to bring his unique skills to government service in the future."

By the way, Rattner is under investigation for a multi-million dollar pay-to-play investment bank scandal in New York ....

Uh-oh!

But, we're certain that had nothing to do with his resignation. And, according to several news sources out there, there are rumors he's being investigated for what could be pay-to-play scandal involving the closing of Chrysler and GM dealerships. Really? Again, that couldn't have anything to with his resignation-that's ridiculous! Like CBS said, this guy just wants to "spend more quality time with his family."

Obama has 32 personally appointed "czars" who answer to no one but him, all of whom are acting without any Constitutional authority. But hey, we're sure they all have "unique skills,"......as Tim Geithner likes to say!

SOOOOO.HOWS THE CHANGE WORKING FOR YOU?..

This goes beyond corruption in high places - to gross criminal actions on the part of our government! I hope you will spread this far and wide, and hopefully the taxpaying public will demand some of that transparency we were promised........ ....followed by criminal prosecution of the perpetrators!

What a crooked government, we have!!!!! Vote 'em all out...November, 2010

Ain't It The Truth


So I said to him, "Barack, I know Abe Lincoln,....and you ain't Abe Lincoln."

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Schwarzenegger declares California fiscal emergency

California just doesn't get it. All decades of liberal spending, state sponsored welfare and an open invitation to illegal immigration, the State is broke,...and not just broke but in debt up to their ears....or Arnold's Pectorals anyway. Hey State workers and Union members going on un-paid furloughs,...how does that make you feel?

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency over the state's finances on Wednesday, raising pressure on lawmakers to negotiate a state budget that is more than a month overdue and will need to close a $19 billion shortfall.

The deficit is 22 percent of the $85 billion general fund budget the governor signed last July for the fiscal year that ended in June, highlighting how the steep drop in California's revenue due to recession, the housing slump, financial market turmoil and high unemployment have slashed its all-important personal income tax collection.

In the declaration, Schwarzenegger ordered three days off without pay per month beginning in August for tens of thousands of state employees to preserve the state's cash to pay its debt, and for essential services.

California 's budget is five weeks overdue, joining New York among big states with spending plans yet to be approved, and Schwarzenegger and top lawmakers are at an impasse over how to balance the state's books.

Analysts say it could be several more weeks before the Republican governor and leaders of the Democrat-led legislature reach an agreement, a delay that threatens to lower the state's already weak credit rating, now hovering just a few notches above "junk" status.

"Without a budget in place that addresses our $19 billion budget deficit, every day of delay brings California closer to a fiscal meltdown," Schwarzenegger said in a statement.

"Our cash situation leaves me no choice but to once again furlough state workers until the legislature produces a budget I can sign," he wrote.

Schwarzenegger's declaration noted the state's government is projected to run out of cash no later than October should its budget stalemate persist, as expected.

California has a long history of nasty and lengthy budget battles.

Last year, the fight over a spending plan dragged on so long the state controller had to issue IOUs instead of payments to vendors to conserve money for priority payments, including payments for education programs and for investors holding the state's bonds.

IOUs AS EARLY AS NEXT MONTH

Schwarzenegger's declaration noted State Controller John Chiang has said he could be forced to issue IOUs as early as next month because of the budget impasse.

Schwarzenegger has proposed slashing spending to balance the state's books, an approach rejected by Democratic lawmakers. Their leaders in the state Senate and Assembly are trying to draft a joint plan likely to include proposals for tax increases to rival the governor's budget plan.

By ordering furloughs, which he also did last year, Schwarzenegger is bringing pressure on state employee unions allied with Democratic lawmakers on the heels of losing a courtroom battle to cut state employees' pay to the federal minimum wage to bolster the state's finances.

Schwarzenegger's new furlough order was instantly condemned by labor officials as a political ploy.

"To once again force state employees to take unpaid furloughs is just another punitive measure by Governor Schwarzenegger because he couldn't impose minimum wage," said Patty Velez, president of the California Association of Professional Scientists.

The declaration exempted state employee bargaining units that recently agreed with Schwarzenegger's administration to new contracts that include reduced pension benefits.

Schwarzenegger has said he will only sign a budget agreement if it includes an overhaul of the state's public pension system, which includes the California Public Employees' Retirement System, the biggest U.S. public pension fund, which he says poses one of California 's greatest financial challenges going forward.

Schwarzenegger clearly has no qualms in the final months of his final term about pressuring lawmakers through the wallets of one their top constituencies, said Pete Peterson, executive director at the Davenport Institute at Pepperdine University 's School of Public Policy .

"It's an indirect play," he said. " ... these past few months there has been a much more confrontational relationship between the governor and the unions."

Fallen Soldiers' Families Denied Cash as Insurers Profit

Taken from Bloomberg.com news from an article written by Article by By David Evans July 28, 2010

Makes me sick to my stomach. Greed that is one of the original sins that will be this Country's downfall unless we change course and change course now!


Thanks Royal,...you know who are you brother!


Like $28 billion in 1 million death-benefit accounts managed by insurers -- wasn’t actually sitting in a bank.

It was being held in Prudential’s general corporate account, earning investment income for the insurer. Prudential paid survivors like Lohman 1 percent interest in 2008 on their Alliance Accounts, while it earned a 4.8 percent return on its corporate funds, according to regulatory filings.

“I’m shocked,” says Lohman, breaking into tears as she learns how the Alliance Account works. “It’s a betrayal. It saddens me as an American that a company would stoop so low as to make a profit on the death of a soldier. Is there anything lower than that?”

Millions of bereaved Americans have unwittingly been placed in the same position by their insurance companies. The practice of issuing what they call “checkbooks” to survivors, instead of paying them lump sums, extends well beyond the military.

In the past decade, these so-called retained-asset accounts have become standard operating procedure in an industry that touches virtually every American: There are more than 300 million active life insurance policies in the U.S. , and the industry holds $4.6 trillion in assets, according to the American Council of Life Insurers.

Insurance companies tell survivors that their money is put in a secure account. Neither Prudential nor MetLife Inc., the largest life insurer in the U.S. , segregates death benefits into a separate fund.

Newark, New Jersey-based Prudential, the second-largest life insurer, holds payouts in its own general account, according to regulatory filings.

New York-based MetLife has told survivors in a standard letter: “To help you through what can be a very difficult, emotional and confusing time, we created a settlement option, the Total Control Account Money Market Option. It is guaranteed by MetLife.”

But No FDIC Insurance

The company’s letter omits that the money is in MetLife’s corporate investment account, isn’t in a bank and has no FDIC insurance.

“All guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims-paying ability of MetLife,” it says.

Both MetLife, which handles insurance for nonmilitary federal employees, and Prudential paid 0.5 percent interest in July to survivors of government workers and soldiers. That’s less than half of the rate available at some banks with accounts insured by the FDIC up to $250,000.

Bank of New York Mellon Corp. handles the paperwork and monthly statements for customers with MetLife “checking accounts.” The insurance company, not the bank, most recently reported holding about $10 billion in death benefits, in 2008.

The “checkbook” system cheats the families of those who die, says Jeffrey Stempel, an insurance law professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada , Las Vegas , who wrote ‘Stempel on Insurance Contracts’ (Aspen Publishers, 2009).

Until public officials wake up, the bereaved will remain a secret profit center for the life insurance industry.

Nevada Tea Party Pictures

Although long past over and done with, the big Nevada Tea Party rally in Searchlight, Nevada raised its head again, recently when Liberals being pushed to back up tjheir claims of racism in the Tea Party with some evidence mentioned the rally in Nevada andn the rally in Washington D.C. as examples,...however they forgot to provide any evidence, video tape or othrwise, although there is a standing $100,000 offer for any evidence showing racists in the Tea Party. It appears that the Tea Party pretty much polices it's own.

Contrast that with President Obama and his administration suing Arizona over it's version of the Federal Immigration enforcment laws, let allowing municipalities to be "sanctuary" cities, not prosecuting Black Panthers for obvious voter intimidating outside Phildephiea polling places, and other breaches of faith and his oath of office.

The following are my three favorite pictures of the Tea Party Rally in Nevada. Could not decide on one for the signs of the month, so I chose all three.






You Cut Update

Previous Cuts Chosen By the Public under the You Cut Program

This is the cut I voted for this week:

Bipartisan Proposal to Terminate the Advanced Earned Income Tax Credit
Saves $1.1 billion over ten years
On July 20th, four Democrat Congressmen launched a working group to focus on deficit reduction. Among the savings put forward by the lawmakers was endorsement of a proposal advocated by the Administration to terminate the Advanced Earned Income Tax Credit (AEITC) because it "has a high error rate and is not widely utilized by eligible taxpayers." Under the program, eligible taxpayers may receive a portion of their EITC throughout the year in their paychecks. A government audit revealed that some 80 percent of recipients did not comply with at least one program requirement; 20 percent had invalid Social Security numbers and thus may not have been eligible for the credit; 40 percent failed to file the annual tax return required to reconcile the credit; and of the 60 percent of recipients who did file a return, two-thirds misreported the amount received. As a result, this program is particularly susceptible to waste, fraud, and abuse.

Islamic Mosque Next to Ground Zero

Unless you have been asleep, you have had to hear about the proposed Islamic Mosque
that it is be built yards away from ground zero in New York City. Englishman Pat Condell, whose Country is undergoing their own Islamicfication, gets it.

How stupid are we to allow this? Get aholt of your Senators and let them know how you feel. This is akin to not only spitting on the graves of all those who perished by that cowardly act of terrorism, but also on the graves of all our military dead from the War of Terrorism. They plan on open this mosque on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 - can you believe this !!!

Response and Comments to this one Liberal's letter Re: Tom Edwards rant about Illegal Immigration

A re-buttal letter, from a woman, against Tom Edward's rant (read Tom Edward's Letter here) about Illegal Immigration has been making the e-mail rounds. We thought it deserved not only to be seen by all readers, but responded to in direct fashion.

"I am seriously offended by this (Tom Edwards') letter. The tone of this letter and the racial slurs in it seriously piss me off. I have no idea who in the hell Tom Edwards is, and futhermore, I could give a shit less. For starters, I AM Hispanic. My family has been in New Mexico since before New Mexico was a part of the United States. My family tree (the Hispanic side) goes back to the Spanish Explorer De Vaca. I must wonder about Tom Edward's family tree. I can guaran-damn-tee you one f@%$*#g thing, he is not 100% American because if he was, his last name would be White Buffalo or something ethnically similar."

Cowboys Comment: The Cherokee and other Eastern Nations of Native Americans adopted Anglo names since the earlier 1600’s. My grandmother was full blooded Cherokee….I find your reference to the ‘White Buffalo” name insulting. But I will forgive your ignorance, seeing how your letter is pretty damn ignorant. By the way, the other side of my family came here in 1634 (Dedham, Massachusetts) – that doesn’t mean anything because what does is who YOU are and what you do for others.

"I am sick to death of the right wing Republicans blaming the financial condition of our country on the Mexicans."

Cowboy’s Comment: Republicans blaming the Mexicans? Really? And I thought all this time that the Democrats were at fault! Why is California broke? Much of the blame has to go to welfare and alike program funding for illegal immigrants.

"It is not the Mexicans' faults that we have spent enough money to college educate every child in public schools nation wide K through 12 in the war in Iraq alone."

Cowboys’ Comment: Straight from the Liberal Defeat the Truth Manual, Chapter 2: Shift the discussion and blame the War Against Terrorism,…oh, the letter writer forgot to blame Bush here – go back and read Chapter 2 again.

"It is not the Mexican's faults that we, as a country, have lived beyond our means in houses we have no hope of being able to afford, or that gas prices have tripled."

Cowboy’s Comment: You are actually partially right here,..the fault of the housing crunch squarely falls on the shoulders of Chris Dodd and Barney “Mumbles” Frank…who are both Democrats. However, when County Hospitals spend tens of million of tax payers dollars to provide free medical care to Illegals,.....not to mention sucking up welfare dollars, and causing municipalities to spend a disproportionate amount of their emergency services budgets,..... well, draw your own conclusions.

"I am sick to death of being told that, as Americans, we do not have to take responsibility for our own actions. If we spill a cup of coffee, on ourselves, just sue the company we bought the coffee from. If we are fat, just sue the fast food companies. If we smoke and get cancer, just sue the tobacco companies. Personally, I'd like to find all their inner children and spank their asses. How dare anyone over the age of 18 try to blame all their problems on someone else. We are all adults, and I'm ready for people to grow the hell up and act like it."

Cowboy’s Comment: It's one thing to spout "Self Responsbility" and a totally different thing to "Walk the Walk". But I'll take you at your word for a moment here. Then I guess you were “for” the Tort reform being pushed by the Republicans but defeated by the Democrats for inclusion into ObamaCare. Individual responsibility is a plank of both the Republican Party and the Tea Party, so in the end I find your mention of individual responsibility incongruent with the rest of your rant, and especially your thinly veiled message that we should give Illegal immigrants, who are mostly Mexican, a special deal……you need to read the book, “You May Be A Dumb Ass Liberal If,…..”


"The "Mexicans" are not the reason we have gangs. We had gangs long before the "Mexicans" had them. We had drive bys, and drug trade, we had violence and mayhem, we had graffiti, we had thieves, and we had criminals long before we had a problem with Mexican immigration. Tom needs to check his information, because I do believe the beginning gangs were the crips and the bloods. I do believe that those gangs started in California, and I do believe that those gangs are primarily black. Of course, Tom will not mention those gangs, because there is no political support to come out against blacks. Just the "Hispanics". They are fair game."

Cowboy’s Comment: I live in a City with 80 recognized gangs. 79 of them are Hispanic. But that is to be expected with an 85% Hispanic population. Gangs recruit, using victim ideology, from the poorer classes of people who feel disenfranchised or who want something for nothing. Illegal immigrants are not only a prime recruiting pool, they also bring a great deal of gang culture with them. Illegal immigrants are committing an illegal act from the simple fact they “enter without inspection”, not to mention State violations of trespassing and trash dumping on their routes across the seven strand international fence or Rio Grande River, as the case may be. And for the last several years, almost all illegal immigrants also tote narcotics across the border as a means to pay for their guide and transportation.

"There is no NAACP, or ACLU to come calling with a summons to court over publicly saying whatever racist drivel you want to about them like there is with the blacks."

Cowboy’s Comment: Yes, the NAACP will not respond much to anti-illegal immigration talk as they are much too busy calling the Tea Party Racists….without any evidence I might add. The ACLU is to busy defending NAMBLA (aka the Man-Boy Butt Pirate League) and other deviates. However, the Illegal Immigration – Pro Crime supporters do have La Raza, which you conveniently failed to mention. How about MALDEF? How about LULAC? What about the Reconquista Movement? Did you speak out when Mexicans were burning the US Flag and flying the Mexican flag? MALDEF - the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund is supporting the a Civil lawsuit against the Border Patrol agent who shot and killed a Criminal Mexican while defending his life and the life of his prisoner....unbelievable! And of course La Raza - The Race,....Anglo race groups like the White Supremacist movements are abhorrent,..we all think they stink,...but La Raza is mainstream to the Mexican and Mexican-American community. Does anyone see a double standard? And you know what? You don't have any demonstrations by Asian-American's asking for spepcial privileges for Asian immigrants.

"So you can spout whatever Nazi like bs you want to, cause no one will ever have the balls to call you the racist bastard that you are. Well, you know what? I have the balls, and I am doing it. As for all of you who thought nothing of forwarding this letter, you probably ought to take a long look in the mirror too, and ask yourselves, just how American am I?"

Cowboy’s Comment: I really don’t need a final comment, but because this woman’s letter was so ignorant, but I wanted to get in the last word,...especially when she is claiming to have testicles. Come on that's just plain silly. Please take the pictures of John Edwards, Al Gore and John Kerry off your fridge,... go into the bathroom and conduct an inspection. I'm sure you will not find any danglies. ANd here's a tip,.......watch who you are calling a Nazi,.....alot of us at one point in our lives wrote a blank check, to the U.S. Gov't, in the amount of "up to and including our life" just so you have free speech and the right to be a goober.

Glenn Beck's "The Overton Window"

Glenn Beck’s “The Overton Window” is a great novel.



He spins a novel based on events we have all seen occur in the last few years. I am no stranger to evil, but sections of this book made the hair on the back of my neck stand up due to the correlations with what is occurring inside this Country even as I write this.

I am not going to write a review nor give you the plot otherwise it’ll ruin a great story for you. But one passage in the book is worth repeating here. “The last act of a despotic regime is to loot the treasury”. Isn’t that what we are seeing now? It seems that much of Obama spending is going to benefit his friends like SEIU, ACORN and such; or pork barrel programs to benefit Democrat legislators, particular those battling for re-election.

The Recovery Act and the take over of General Motors resulted in the closing of many GM dealerships, with a loss of approximately 100,000 jobs. There was a disproportionate number of rural GM dealer closings. Is there any correlation between Obama doing very poorly in rural areas and government pressure to close dealerships in anti-Obama areas?

Anyway, pickup Glenn Beck’s book, “The Overton Window”, you won’t be disappointed. By the way,…I heard Glenn was coming out with a sequel next year.

Simple Lesson in Socialism

American Colleges and Universities have long been a incubation tube for socialism and left wing teaching,....just look at where Obama from. It gives us heart when
we hear about Professors who are either neutral or conservative. Feel free to use this lesson for your neighbors and children.


An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan".

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that.

Letter to the Editor - Los Angeles Times

The following was a letter to the editor of the LA Times. I must say he is a little ticked off, as if you can't tell. Letters to the Editor are great,.there is always going to be some butt head who exposes himself or herself as an idiot, giving us a target. That's if the paper publishes your rebuttal,....

Hector,

I can't believe that a major metropolitan paper like the LA Times would publish drivel like your distortion-laden column I had the misfortune to read today. The citizens of Arizona passed a law that makes it necessary to prove you are in their state LEGALLY. They are tired of paying TWO BILLION taxpayer dollars a year in medical and educational benefits to people in their state ILLEGALLY. They are tired of the Mexican drug traffickers, kidnappings (389 last year), traffic accidents, and crime caused by ILLEGAL immigrants in their state. They are tired of citizens of a foreign country overcrowding and bankrupting their emergency rooms and schools. They have the ABSOLUTE RIGHT to defend their state when the federal government fails to do so just like I have the right to put three hollow-points in the chest of the guy who's trying to kick in my front door when the cops don't show up.

It has been THE LAW in this country since 1940 that foreign nationals be able to produce proof that they are here LEGALLY by way of visa, green card, etc. This "Produce your papers" and the allusions to Nazi Germany is a bunch of dishonest claptrap. If you took time to read the Arizona law (assuming you can read English) you would see that police officers may only inquire as to an individual’s immigration status in the course of a "legal contact". The problem with you and Mexicans like you is the fact that you have this sense of entitlement that you can enter OUR COUNTRY as you please. You come from a culture and a country with NO RESPECT for the law or the RULE OF LAW. The United States is a sovereign nation with the ABSOLUTE RIGHT to decide who does and does not enter our country.

What amuses me the most is the fact that if our illegal immigration problem was due to the influx of SWEDES, you wouldn't have written ONE WORD in the defense of their rights. It is only because they are Hispanics like you that you leap to their defense. I find it ironic that you are truer to your Hispanic roots than you are to your American citizenship, especially since the Hispanic culture is a broken, busted-ass, ignorant-ass, uneducated, going-nowhere culture and has been for the last 500 years, and in all likelihood, will be for the NEXT 500 years.

When I moved to California in 1969, Los Angeles was a CLEAN prosperous city. Now it's BROKE under the weight of massive entitlements. Now we need concertina wire to protect our freeway signs from Hispano-moron graffiti "artists'. What an enlightened culture you come from that believes that vandalizing another’s property is an art form. Over 400 California families have lost loved ones to ILLEGAL immigrant murderers. 40% of the criminals incarcerated in our prisons at CALIFORNIA TAXPAYER EXPENSE, are ILLEGAL immigrants. Thank you so much for our overcrowded ERs, schools and freeways. Thanks also for the gangs and the drive-by shootings. In all fairness though, I like the tacos.

If I want to enter Mexico , France , England , Germany or ANY country on this earth, I need to PRODUCE A PASSPORT to do so. It's THEIR COUNTRY and I need to ask permission to do so. HOW DARE you and your brethren think that they have some God-given right to flout our laws and come into our country of their own accord. You and people like you are the textbook example of why the fewer Mexicans we have in our country, the better our country will be. We manage to produce a steady supply of home-grown idiots on our own, thank very much (Exhibit A - Obama)

Good luck with your boycotts and your protests. Just remember; amigo, 70% of the people in Arizona and 65% of Americans LOVE this law. Every time you put together thousands of protesters, you piss off MILLIONS of people like me.

Hasta la vista, baby.

The Dallas Solution - Homeowners Unite to Fight Excessive Garbage AND Illegal Immigration

Sent to Cowboys and Tea Parties by a Reader,.....

I have a friend who is President of his homeowners association in the Dallas, Texas, suburbs. They were having a terrible problem with litter near some of his association's homes. The reason, according to my friend, is that six very large, luxurious new houses are being built right next to their community.

The trash was coming from the Mexican laborers working at the construction sites and included bags from McDonald's, Burger King, and 7-11, plus beer cans and bottles, coffee cups, napkins, cigarette butts, coke cans, empty bottles, etc…..did I say beer cans and bottles?

He went to see the site supervisor and even the general contractor, politely urging them to get their workers not to litter the neighborhood, to no avail. He called the city, county, and police and got no help there either.

So here's what his community did. They organized about twenty folks, named themselves The "Inner Neighborhood Services" group, and arranged to go out at lunch time and "police" the trash themselves. It is what they did while picking up the trash that is so hilarious.

They bought navy blue baseball caps and had the initials "INS" embroidered in gold on the caps.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand what they hoped people might mistakenly think the letters really stood for..

After the Inner Neighborhood Services group's first lunch-time pickup detail, with all of them wearing their caps and some carrying cameras, 46 out of the total of 68 construction workers did not show up for work the next morning -- and haven't come back yet.

It has been ten days now.

The General Contractor, I'm told, is madder than hell, but can't say anything publicly because he could be busted for hiring illegal aliens. My friend and his bunch can't be accused of impersonating federal officers, because they have the official name of the group recorded in their homeowner association minutes along with a notation about the vote to approve formation of the new subcommittee -- and besides, the old INS – Immigration and Naturalization Service was disbanded years ago with the creation of the Department of Homeland Security.

SO, FOLKS, I THINK YOU COULD SAY THAT TEXAS INGENUITY TRIUMPHS AGAIN!

Reminder: Don't forget to pay your taxes....... Tens of millions of illegal aliens are depending on you.

Greed - Adds to the Velocity of this Country's Downfall

Greed, along with Corruption are destroying this Country. An unbelievable complex and unfair tax code aids in the destruction.

From the Los Angeles TimesMcCourts pitch a shutout on taxes
February 24, 2010|MICHAEL HILTZIK

The McCourts (Frank and Jamie), who own the Los Angeles Dodgers (so she says; he says he's the owner and she's not), jointly pocketed income totaling $108 million from 2004 through 2009, according to documents Jamie McCourt recently filed in the couple's divorce case in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

On that sum, they paid zero federal and state income tax. Jamie suggests that some tax breaks will apply this year too.

This reminds me of the old line about how true scandal lies not in what's illegal, but what's legal. It's certainly an edifying window into the lengths some people will go to avoid paying taxes.

The court papers indicate that the McCourts deliberately structured their business at least partially to allow them to live tax-free.

Frank McCourt's lawyer, Marc Seltzer, didn't directly dispute Jamie's characterizations of the couple's tax planning or the details of their finances. He did, however, call her document filings "selective" and complained by e-mail that she made public "information which most people would respect as private."

According to Jamie, the McCourts employed two mechanisms to live tax-free. One was to claim enormous tax losses from their business, which was mostly commercial real estate before they bought the Dodgers. These could be carried forward, offsetting income year after year until they were finally netted out. Jamie's documents say that in 2008 the net loss carry-forward from previous years was $109 million -- in other words, the McCourts could have earned that much without paying a penny of income tax.

A year later, the loss carry-forward had increased to $135 million, which makes it sound as if 2008 was one horrible year. Yet according to another document Jamie filed in court, one of Frank's partnerships paid him $23 million that year.

Did the McCourts really lose $135 million in the years before 2009? Probably not in the sense that you or I suffer a loss when a dollar bill slips through a hole in our jeans, or even when we sell that stock our brother-in-law described as "a slam dunk" for less than we paid for it.

"They're tax losses. I don't mean real losses," Jamie's lawyer, Bert Fields, told me.

Fields, who assured me that everything the McCourts have done is legitimate, tax-wise, wasn't entirely clear on how the losses were generated. But Jamie's accountant states in a court document that some is due to depreciation, which is a way of accounting for wear and tear on a property.

Depreciation is a non-cash expense that can be applied against cash income, reducing your income taxes or creating a loss to show the tax man, even though you're making money. It's common in real estate, though it can also be applied to things like a sports team's player contracts. Depreciation is technically a tax deferral, not an exemption, but the reckoning can be years off.

In any case, one would also think that if the McCourts' business were truly suffering operating losses of such magnitude, eventually it would no longer have the proverbial urn to fill. It's unclear whether this is so -- the document dump includes a 2007 e-mail from an officer of the McCourt Group, one of the family's major holding companies, observing that the group "has squat for assets" and needs "start up capital and cash flow" -- but that's just one subsidiary.

Another McCourt maneuver involves financing and refinancing their assets. The tax rules allow real estate owners to refinance properties with rising values and take out cash tax-free. (Many homeowners engaged in similar "cash out" refis during the housing boom). Land developers can transfer tax credits from property to property, like an NFL team booting a fumbled ball toward the goal line, until time runs out or the market crashes.

The McCourts have also borrowed against future business income -- in 2007 they took out a $140-million loan against future Dodger ticket sales, of which $20 million went to fund their lifestyles, tax-free. Of course, when the loan comes due, the piper will have to be paid, but interest on the loan will be tax-deductible for the Dodgers, Jamie's lawyers say.

It's proper to acknowledge that tax breaks like these can have a legitimate purpose. The idea is that they encourage certain investments, such as real estate development, that may energize the economy and create jobs.

Is that what's happening here? The tax benefits reaped by the McCourts helped turbocharge their lifestyle. There are eight houses, including four in Holmby Hills and Malibu . The McCourts treated their family and business checkbooks as "largely one and the same," according to an e-mail from a McCourt executive Jamie filed in court. (Oddly, the e-mail ascribes to her the philosophy of "why have a family business but to support the family lifestyle.") This paid for meals in the best restaurants, floral arrangements for home and office from the finest florists, country club dues, personal travel on the Dodgers plane, Jamie's makeup "for Dodger events" ($386 a month).

The point is not to begrudge the McCourts these luxuries. The point is to question why we as taxpayers should subsidize them. Jamie asserts that, although the state of Massachusetts is auditing the couple's personal returns for 2006 (they used to be based in the Bay State ), neither California nor the Internal Revenue Service is doing so. This raises another question: Why not?

Can we as taxpayers be confident we aren't paying more than our fair share? Jamie alleges that for the purposes of the divorce, Frank has manipulated the business accounts to make himself look $670 million poorer than he is. Delivering fake numbers to the IRS is a rather different matter from delivering them to your spouse in a divorce action, but the McCourts structured their business as a stew with a lot of complicated ingredients, which makes it hard to verify that all the tax breaks are fully warranted.

People who practice tax avoidance on this scale don't often emerge with their images unsullied. When a Senate committee revealed in 1933 that J.P. Morgan Jr. and his partners had paid no income taxes for 1930, 1931 and 1932, their reputation for probity was shattered; the uproar helped the New Deal bring Wall Street under regulation. Leona Helmsley's 1989 conviction for tax evasion wrecked her elegant image forever (I am not suggesting the McCourts broke the law, as she did). But she did bequeath us the credo of the wealthy non-taxpayer.

"Only the little people pay taxes," she reportedly told a maid. The lesson of the McCourts is slightly different: The little people pay taxes for the big people.

Obama Claims GOP Worsens Joblessness



Obama failing to accept responsibility for the down spiraling economy. So what else is new?

Talk about spinning the facts,...and that's a nice way to put it,...others would call it lying when Obama, on Saturday 17 July during his weekly radio address, blamed Republican's for obstructing progress for a economic recovery, specifically on extended unemployment benefits and small business loans.

The Republicans have been blocking attempts to extend, the already extended, unemployment benefits because of the lack of desire to extend the deficit. At least some Republicans are listening to the people.

The legislation that allows for small business loans has not been brought up for a vote yet. The Republicans are trying to debate, amend, then pass a bill to stimulate small business, but as everyone knows the Democrats control the legislative process in both houses of Congress.

Obama comes across as a hypocrite and liar. Rampant government spending, the HUGE deficit, overbearing government regulations, threats to cancel the Bush tax cuts, Obamacare with it's higher taxes and mandates, and finally, and the pending Cap and Trade bill all are great obstacles to a economic recovery. So when Obama blames the Republicans he must be thinking that the American people are smart enough to find the truth.

You Cut - Did you Vote this Week?

If you didn't vote yet this week, you still can. Go to:
http://republicanwhip.house.gov/YouCut/

I voted to Eliminate the "Dodd Clinic" Earmark From Obamacare
Savings of $100 million over ten years.

There were bigger savings, but this one hits me between the eyes. Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut) along with his butt pirate pal Barney "Bumbling, Mumbling and Stumbling" Frank are responsible for the catalyst which sparked this recession and economic crunch with their conspiracy with Frannie Mae and Freddie Mac. And now he wants an earmark for a clinic which will undoubtedly be named after him? Only appropriate if the clinic is an STD clinic.

Section 10502(a) of the over 2,000 page recently enacted Obamacare government healthcare bill provides $100 million for construction at an unnamed "health care facility." However, the language in health bill is tailored in such a way as to ensure the funding is earmarked for the University of Connecticut. By eliminating this special interest funding, we can protect taxpayers while we work to repeal the entire health care law.

Changing World Demograhics

Excellent video that explains changing World Demographics. Within our childrens' lifetimes they see a drastically different Europe that our parents knew and that our Grandparents fought for in World War II.

You see bits and pieces of it now,.....Muslims protesting British soldiers with slogans and signs with vile sayings.

Germany a Muslim State in 2015? 52 million Muslims expanded day by day will turn Europe into what we now see in the Middle East. Experts think that number will double in twenty years.

In 1970 there were 100,000 Muslims in the U.S. In 2008 the number grew to a staggering 9 million. Muslims organizations believe that in thirty years that number will be 50 million.

We Figured Him Out, By Ben Stein





Why was President Barack Obama in such a hurry to get his socialized medicine bill passed? Because he and his cunning circle realize some basic truths:


The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. Pig in a poke means: an offering or deal that is foolishly accepted without being examined first. A poke means sack.

They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books.

They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright..

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student.

They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country,

The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way helped all Americans.

The American people already know that Mr.. Obama's plan to lower health costs while expanding coverage and bureaucracy is a myth, a promise of something that never was and never can be --

"a bureaucracy lowering costs in a free society." Either the costs go up or the free society goes away... A historical truth.

These are perilous times.. Mrs. Hillary Clinton, our Secretary of State, has given Iran the go-ahead to have nuclear weapons, an unqualified betrayal of the nation (and Israel ). Now, we face a devastating loss of freedom at home in health care. It will be joined by controls on our lives to "protect us "from global warming, itself largely a fraud if believed to be caused by man." She has also signed on to a Small Firearms Treaty at the U.N. This is a back door gun control move. This is approved by the Senate and a 2nd Amendment majority doesn't exist in the Senate now. It will supersede all U.S. Law and the 2nd Amendment. All citizen possession will be eliminated through confiscation. Just Like Great Britain and Australia.

Mr. Obama knows Americans are getting wise and will stop him if he delays at all in taking away our freedoms. There is his urgency and our opportunity. Once freedom is lost, America is lost. Wake up, beloved America.

States Rights and the 17th Amendment

I think you'll enjoy watching this powerful presentation sent to classical music on the subject of States Rights and Repealing the 17th Amendment.

A movement exists that calls for the repeal of the Seventeenth Amendment, generally opposing it on grounds of federalism (States' rights) and because of the Amendment taking away too much power from the states. Proponents of repeal have also accused Senators of being hostage to special interests.

Article 1, Section 3 of the Constitution reads: "The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the legislature thereof...."

The 17th Amendment altered the language to read: "The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof...." By substituting the words "elected" and "people" for "chosen" and "legislature," the 17th Amendment significantly shifted the delicate balance of power between state and national government. The drafters of the Constitution as composed in 1787, considered this balance fundamental to the perpetuation of our new republic.

James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, wrote often in The Federalist of the sacred sovereignty of the states. In Federalist No. 39, he wrote, "Each state, in ratifying the constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act."

You decide.

Hawaii Elections Official claims Obama not born here

Some people are claiming that the urgency to get a bill through Congress to provide the President with "Kill Switch" power to shut down the Internet may be more in the interest of protecting the security of his legal right to serve as president than in the interest of national security.

The following video dealing with his legal place of birth came to light on June 10th, 2010. The national news media has been silent on this one.

Cowboys and Tea Parties does not necessarily share the viewpoint from so many others that Barack Obama, also known as Barry Soltelo (sp?) is holding the office of the President illegally. However we do feel that Obama has set a new precedent for with holding records,...from college transcripts, to answering the questions on why he claimed ot be a foreign student, to explanations on various passports and names, to how he paid for his long trip to Southwest Asia (Pakistan) during his college days and a host of other failures to release records. So we'll post the below video and let the readers decide the validity.



George Soros

Who Is George Soros? Here is what CBS' Steve Kroft research turned up. It took 4 months to put it together.

"The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States ." George Soros "George Soros is an evil man. He's anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good." He killed and robbed his own Jewish people. If George Soros isn't the world's preeminent "malignant messianic narcissist," he'll do until Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot are reincarnated.

What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath's lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist world class philosopher, despises the American Way and just loves to do social engineering (change cultures).

Gy├Ârgy Schwartz, better known as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary . Soros' father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz's, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

When Hitler's henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary , to oversee the murder of that country's Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds. Soros has repeatedly called 1944 "the best year of his life." "70% of Mr. Soros's fellow Jews in Hungary , nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect."

During an interview with "Sixty Minutes" Soros was asked about his "best year:" KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson. SOROS: Yes. KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors. SOROS: Yes. That's right. KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult? SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it. KROFT: No feeling of guilt? SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having "carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble." Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper's death in 1994.

Two of Popper's most influential teachings concerned "the open society," and Fallibilism. Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. (Then again, I could be wrong about that.) The "open society" basically refers to a "test and evaluate" approach to social engineering. Regarding "open society" Roy Childs writes, "Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper's advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess."

In 1956 Soros moved to New York City , where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation. Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for "The American Thinker" she says, "Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England . He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight."

In 1994 Soros crowed in "The New Republic " that "the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire." The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be "one of the greatest social robberies in human history." The "Soros Empire" indeed In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia At the time, Malaysia 's Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros "a villain, and a moron."

Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, "We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people." The website Greek National Pride reports, "[Soros] was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia , Ukraine and Myanmar [ Burma ]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros' role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality."

France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 29 million dollars. Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for "illegal market manipulation." Elizabeth Crum writes that "The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros'] deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary's economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach. But what about America ? Soros told Australia 's national newspaper "The Australian" " America , as the centre of the globalised financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out," he said, adding that the time has come for "a very serious adjustment" in American's consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about." Soros: "World financial crisis was "stimulating" and "in a way, the culmination of my life's work."

Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama's largesse towards Brazil, came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras). Tait Trussel writes, "The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil , but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independance."

A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com. Their mission: "This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world's poor, that justice will be served."

Back to America . Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago news sources reported that "Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous." In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, "Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His "open society" is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements."

Perhaps the most important of these "whistle blowers" are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book "The Shadow Party" outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years. The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration. DiscoverTheNetworks.org (another good source) writes, "By his [Soros'] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia , Croatia , Georgia , and Yugoslavia.

When Soros targets a country for "regime change," he begins by creating a shadow government , a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup." November 2008 edition of the German magazine "Der Spiegel," in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U.S. ) should do after taking office "I think we need a large stimulus package." Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right.

Soros also said that "I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights." Although Soros doesn't (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by "The Baltimore Chronicle's" Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by "a veritable who's who of former Republican leaders," from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr. In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney's old stomping grounds. When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time.

In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 to the Democratic National Committee, DNC, to insure Obama's win and wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-American Socialist. George has been contributing a $ billion plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene. Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren't bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA.

And I mustn't forget to mention Soros' involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to.

In short, George Soros controls or influence most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soro's NEMESIS. As Matthew Vadum writes, "The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives."

Richard Poe writes, "Soros' private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America 's traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering."

Some of the many NGOs (None Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America ), La Raza, and many more.

For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go toDiscoverTheNetworks.org. Poe continues, "Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia." Without Soro's money, would the Saul Alinsky's Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?

America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barak Obama is leading the way. The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" These days, Patrick Henry's sentiment is more than just some quaint hyperbole from long ago. It's a slow burning, but intense, glow that fires our courage and heart.

Washington Post/ABC News Public Opinion Poll

Nearly 60 percent of American voters say they lack faith in President Barack Obama, according to a Washington Post/ABC News public opinion poll published on Tuesday.

This is a reversal of what voters said at the start of Obama's presidency 18 months ago when about 60 percent expressed confidence in his decision making.

Confidence in Obama is at a new low but the poll found that his numbers are still higher than lawmakers of either major party four months ahead of the November congressional elections.

When asked how much confidence they had in Obama to make the right decisions for the country's future: 58 percent of respondents said "just some" or "none." 68% expressed the same sentiments about Democrats in Congress and 72% said the same of Republicans.

The Post said problems in the housing industry, sluggish job growth and other economic issues may have taken a toll on Obama's approval rating.

Just 43 percent of all Americans, including a third of Democrats, now say they approve of the job Obama is doing on the economy, while 54 percent disapprove.

The survey also found wide anti-incumbent sentiment with 62 percent of voters saying they were not inclined to support their current representative.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for grabs in the November 2 election as well as 36 of the 100 Senate seats.

Democrats now control both houses of Congress, but a slight majority of those polled said they would prefer to have Republicans in control to serve as a check on Obama's policies.

The poll of 1,288 people was conducted July 7-11 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

Wow! You would think that Congress and Obama's approval rating would be near bottom! Especially after the Stimulus-Spendulous II; buying Car Companies with tax payers money; bullying CEO’s; throwing money at the corrupt Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; ramming health care down our throats; embarrassing the U.S. overseas; letting Mexican Idiot President Calderon lecture us on our laws; siding with criminal aliens and suing the sovereign State of Arizona; after scandalous links to Unions such as SEIU and other organizations such as ACORN; after violating the constitution by hiring “czars” to run federal programs and advise governmental entities; after hiring radical socialist and radical socialist liberal for his cabinet and inner circle – one would think that the American People get it! Apparently not as good as they should. Let’s get rid of this ass clown’s minions in November then throw him out of office 2 years from now. The people deserve better,…this Country’s future demands it.

Founders Wisdom – Still True and Valid Today

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not" – Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

A warning, from over 200 years ago, about becoming an entitlest society, or if you prefer a Socialist State . In the simplest terms, if you are given something you value it less; then you come to expect it. I have seen in my relatives and constantly do battle with myself over it in some things. We have to hold people responsible. I call it “taking responsibility for your own misery”. There are examples where we can compassionately help people get off the welfare rolls. Former Governor Tommy Thompson of Wisconsin is one of them with his welfare to work program.


"Industry is increased, commodities are multiplied; agriculture and manufacturers flourish; and herein consists of the true wealth and prosperity of a state." - Alexander Hamilton, report of a National Bank 1790.

Widsom from 220 years ago, still valid today. The way to prosperity for this Country is through small business. Small business cannot get there with the heavy burden of unnecessary government regulation, ridiculous health care mandates, extremely high Worksmen Compensation insurance costs and unfair taxation. These small businesses will not expand, and, will let workers go in order to keep the business afloat. Obamacare and the pending Cap & Trade legislation will kill small business.


“There are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” - James Madison, speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788.

The growth of today’s government under the Obama Administration is unprecedented. The growth of government power and the growth of spending is unlike anything in the history of the world for any country and will surely destroy this Great Country if it doesn’t change and change now.

Catching Obama Lying,....Again

Text and video from The Raw Deal

(video courtesy Greensboring.com) In the video, Obama explains how his Father, when returning from World War II, was treated properly. Obama was speaking to veterans at the time. Truly, he takes ‘appeal to your audience’ to a whole new level.

A 3-year-old soldier. Impressive. It was September 1st [1939] when Nazi Germany first invaded Poland. Obama’s father would have been three at the time. Facts truly are stubborn things. Perhaps what’s most interesting about the verbal ‘misstep’ is the ease and sincerity at which he pulls it off. Kinda makes you wonder what else he might be lying about…..

Wait a minute, maybe Obama's father was a drummer boy?

Common Sense of Range Magazine - Keeping Track of the Radical Environmentalists

I am a avid reader of Range Magazine, not just because it showcases the ranching and self sustaining western lifestyle, cowboy logic and horse sense, but it also brings to focus political issues such as the liberal political assault on our freedoms, radical environmentalist driven restrictions on land use, as well as the radical and unfounded babble about climate change.


In the latest edition of Range Magazine, Summer 2010, the editors expose plans by the USDA to further reduce this country's ability to feed itself. We used to build things for the world as well as feed them, now we rely on foreign countries, mostly China, to build our products and a host of other countries to feed us.

Here is a quote by Bob Stallman, American Farm Bureau on "Hoosier Ag Today", with Gary Truitt, January 11, 2010:

"At the very time that we need to increase our food production, climate-change legislation (note: Obama's deathly Cap and Trade Bill) threatens to slash our ability to do so. The USDA is suggesting the number of acres of land that would shift from crops to trees with that legislation could be 59 million acres. That number of acres equates to setting aside every crop production acre in Indiana, California, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Tennessee."

Make no mistake about it,...the radical left agrenda is to destroy this country. They say it themselves:

"We must make this an inseucre and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness, millions of acres of presently settled land." - David Foreman (1947- ), co-founder of EarthFirst?

Not convinced?,....

"Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrailized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?" - Maurice Strong (1929 - ), founder of the United Nations Environment Programme.

The Obama-Pelosi-Reid plan to jam Cap and Trade down our throats will be a deathnell to this country.

Join or Die


Join Or Die - Ben Franklin and the Albany Congress. In 1754, Britain and France were struggling for control over portions of North America. In the face of a looming war that would play out, in part, on American soil, Franklin proposed a plan that would unite the colonial governments into a single federal council. In his Albany Plan, Franklin held that the colonies, by acting with one united voice, could more effectively fend off threatened attacks by the French and their Native American allies. Both the colonists and the British Crown rejected Franklin’s plan because it encroached on their respective powers, but the Albany Plan remains important as one of the first documented efforts to unite the colonies.

I am posting the Join or Die Flag to serve as a graphic reminder that we have to join,.....join something,.....join a local tea party movement,....joint the National Rifle Association,......join your fellow citizens at local City or County Representatives or council meeting. Get involved.

We have got to get this Country turned around. We can only do that through massive involvement. Draw a Liberty Bell on each Friday of your calendar to remind you to do something. Call your Congressman. E-mail your Senator even if he/she is an idiot or a thug. Sign petitions,...hell, start a petition.....start a blog,...do something, get involved! Join or Die, this Country is in danger!

You can purchase a "Join or Die" flag or any other historical flag. Go to this web site: Gadsden and Culpeper.

Yet Another Radical in the Obama Administration.

President Obama did it again, waiting until Congress was out of session to install Don Berwick as the man to run Medicare and Medicaid, and, be in charge of the latest albatross around the American people's necks,......Obamacare.

With Berwick we get the man who called for re-distribution of wealth from the wealthy to the poor to pay for health care...his words, to the effect: "We MUST redistribute wealth to pay for the health care of the poor."

Berwick is also known for standing up for the rationing of healthcare and his blind love fest with the British health care system,....which even the most stupid of us know, is ridiculously screwed up.

While Obama's recess appointment is a legitimate tactic since Presidents would have a very tough time filling posts due to the time (and bribery) it takes to get an appointment through Congress. But Obama had no right to install a man as polarizing, and a man who values are so far away from mainstream America. Obama makes mistake after mistake showing the American people that his far left wing agenda is much more important to him that the will and rights of the People.

Poor old Monkey-face Gibbs, the President's Press Secretary, looking like a Buffoon side stepping questions on this appointment, even from the liberal media, on this absolute anti-American appointment. Guess what Gibbs did? Re-directed the question to a non-functioning answer about who?,......you guessed it,..George Bush,....it must be his fault,.....again.
