“The Bill of Rights is a born rebel. It reeks with sedition. In every clause it shakes its fist in the face of constituted authority... it is the one guaranty of human freedom to the American people.” - Frank I. Cobb
In celebration of California bucking the trend of returning to liberty and Constitutional fundamentals... I designed a new flag that I feel is a little more fitting. The new Federalist California Flag!
This November 2, if God so blesses us with one more chance to to redeem the republic he blessed us with, my first recomendation would be to update our voter rules and make them uniform for federal elections. Some suggestions:
• ENGLISH ONLY. No brainer. If you are a citizen with an entitlement to vote, you should be able to understand ENGLISH. California has some dozen or so options.
• SHOW ID. Certify every person. No id - no vote.
• PROSECUTE those who violate this scared, SACRED privilege. And not just a fine. But jail time. And the forfeture of future voting.
• PROTECT THE VOTE OF THE MILITARY. Oppose this and you are just plain scum.
I have other suggeations... such as tax increases can only be voted on by those whom they may affect - like property owners. Do you have others?
Of the 37 democrats who voted no on Obamacare, 34 are up for re-election. Do you really think that if it was a pass year for them and they did not have a buffer with the vote count, that they would of still voted no? Please... Pelosi(deous) allowed them to vote no. The problem is, their re-election continues the fundamental change (attack on our constitution) that is in play today.
Last week I sat back and watched and listened to the many comments on Glenn Beck and his role in not only restoring honor to America but in rebuilding faith amongst believers. Many were disappointed that Christian leaders would share a stage and Christians in general would travel across the country to listen to and be inspired by... a Mormon. That just being there they would somehow give credence to his faith and weaken the 'true' message of Christ. That Christians were selling out.
But... what if... now hang in there with me... what if all of this is God's plan to surround Glenn with believers? That God is using this rally, movement or whatever you may call it, to somehow work on Glenn in his walk. Could God do this? Would He do this? And how many of those who stood up and chastised Christendom for "selling out" actually took time to pray for Glenn? Very few I imagine. That is sad. All I have ever seen or heard from Glenn is that we are a fallen people and our country is in need of God's grace. No shattering news there. As believers, maybe it time to show some of that grace back to Glenn.
On Saturday's Restoring America Rally, Alveda King during her prayer spoke of her dreams. One was of her hope "that white privilege would become human privilege." In retrospect, at Obama's coronation he had a minister pray that he hoped "whites would do what is right." Is the race card different coming from a black conservative vs a liberal one? I find it offensive either way. Along with the sharpton show later that day, it does show that racism is more alive today than ever. The problem is it is now 180 degrees from 47 years ago.
"The Rev. Walter Fauntroy, the non-voting delegate who represented the District of Columbia from 1971 to 1991, called on African-Americans to organize a "new coalition of conscience" to rebut the rally scheduled for Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial featuring Fox News pundit Glenn Beck and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
"We are going to take on the barbarism of war, the decadence of racism, and the scourge of poverty, that the Ku Klux -- I meant to say the Tea Party," Fauntroy told a news conference today at the National Press Club. "You all forgive me, but I -- you have to use them interchangeably.""
Two bit punk. That's all this fauntroy is worth... if that. Vermon like this, who title themselves as reverend or father... like jackson, flager and sharpton, know nothing about judging a man by the content of a person's character. Their souls are wrapped in hate and vile. Poverty pimps like this, it is sad that many listen to. It's sad that many will follow. But this is not their country. And rest assured I will not let them take mine. I am a hyphen free American. I AM THE TEA PARTY!!!
A quote I read was "congressmen who lose their election will no longer be accountable to the people in a lame-duck session."
No longer accountable...?
Mass-ass kerry went so far to say, "If it is after the election, it may well be that some members are free and liberated and feeling that they can take a risk or do something."
I guess if their oath and duty to the constitution ends before they leave office... then the very rule of law that protects them from... say... lame duck hunting season should end. Are they not directly attacking the will of "We the People" and thus committing treason? Isn't the $1,000's each of us will be forced to pay for another socially engineering program like cap and trade, just robbery. It's really no different than being held up after cashing our paycheck. And then again it's not much different from days long ago when outlaws stole your horse. Today they justify these thefts because you really shouldn't have too many horses... too big of house... too many cars... too much money... when some poor (lazy) soul down the street has less than you. Now what did they do to horse thieves again?
YES! Thieves should get what they deserve. So should traitor politicians.
Now it's not that any of these wack jobs have ever adhered to their oath. Most democrats, many republicans and all elected independents, hate the Founder's vision of America. They are narcissistic elitists. They are also an enemies and threats to the republic.
Come November 3rd, we'll be watching. Lame-Duck Session may just become Lame-Duck Season! Your move nancy!
The major problem Washington will have from now on, is the ever increasing number of the electorate who are actually understanding and believing in the principles of our Constitution. The Bill of Rights are not just to be defended when they are convenient. These hacks may mock us... but they also fear us. Rest assured, after a 100+ years of not paying attention, from a quote by the Who... "WE WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN!"
My family and I (together... it is never separate, it's kinda why I married her 18 years ago and with the kids... well they are our kids... and we are... I think the word is family), have taken only one vacation this year. We have had cut back like many. We went camping in the desert for 4 days. Yes it was in our motor-home that we make payments on. In the process we used a total of 70 gallons of greenhouse warming fossil fuel... as well as burning 3 nights of firewood. With food, supplies and extras... it cost us about $500... or $125 a day. We had to budget and rearrange a couple of accounts to make it happen. We rationalized that our boys are only young once. And we might not be able to do another trip for a while.
Kinda like the first family and their vacation(s)... minus the fact that they did theirs apart (can you feel the love?)... minus the 65+ support staff (we do our own packing, cooking, repairs, cleaning, driving, etc.)... minus a security force of over 1,000 agents (I carry my own :) thank you)... minus some 40+ friends who I guess all just lost their fathers and needed to get away (we did bring our new dog)... minus the military escort, which included dozens of other planes including a C130 to carry the limo and makeup bag (I towed a trailer and had to... with pleasure... set everything up and dig the fire pit.)... and... we had to share the desert without part of it being closed off for our personal/private use.
Her vacation is said to cost about $75,000 a day... BULL CRAP! Air Force One cost some $75,000 AN HOUR!!! A conservative estimate.... over $5,000,000 for her alone. Add O's little birthday trip heading the other direction and it was one big fricken slap to you and I.
They say they are one of us, the common people. Their arrogance is absurd. And please don't say Bush did... . What the Bushes did were to go home to Crawford for extended periods and work... not play golf, not shoot hoops with the brothers. He had enough problems but playing royalty wasn't one of them.
Unlike this Estrogen Metro Male wannabe king and his family of leaches.
Gunowners Celebrate New Gun Law With all the celebration in the streets yesterday that the feds have made it legal to be illegal... and all the foreign flags flying on American soil... one liitle thing went virtually unnoticed... Arizona restored an 'infringed' on right. Gotta love this state.
I'm not an organized group. No membership. No chapter. No club. Nothing to sign. Nothing to join. No dues to pay. I am the TEA Party!
I will defend the constitution of our founders, from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Unlike those in political office, I will keep that oath, at all costs. So help me God! I am the TEA Party!
I believe that our Bill of Rights were granted to me as an individual. They are natural rights from God. Equal rights and opportunities... not equal things. I will look out for my fellow man... God commands me. But do not take of my labor by forced redistribution to fulfill a collective welfare agenda. That is not what our republic stands for. I will fight. I am the TEA Party!
I believe in limited government and that those we elect are our servants. They are not royalty. I do not fear them! I believe that our country is great and has been blessed by God. And that is the God, I trust. I am the TEA Party!
I will leave you alone, if you do not tread on me. But don't expect me to go away. I've been asleep too long and now look what has happened. I have a lot of work to do. It's the least I can do for the sacrifices others have already made. I am relearning the history that has been hidden from me. I know the truth and I know the lies. I am the TEA Party!
Call me names. Question my motives and character. You have that right which I will defend. It just empowers me more. Actually you have woken me up. So thank you. I am the TEA Party!
A friend at work emailed me this morning... be sure to read the last sentence a few times.
Here's a comment from my son as he was flying home from Afghanistan.
"The death of a fellow soldier is something that is hard to describe. I have seen it, felt it and don't really care to discuss it much. Some I knew, some I will never know. Our plane back from Afghanistan carried the bodies of two fallen heroes. I didn't know who they were, but I wondered every time I look at their flag draped containers on the floor of the plane. A sober reminder to live a life worthy of their sacrifice."
'Authority should derive from the consent of the governed, not from the threat of force!' Barbie from Toy Story 3
I think it was very brave for Barbie to take a conservative stand especially coming from Hollywood. I hear after her breakup with Ken (he's gay you know) she started seeing GI Joe and her entire belief system changed. I now predict that TEA Party Barbie will be a huge success.
We have a war hero in our community running for office. I'll comment after the story from PatriotPost.US
Profiles of Valor: Nick Popaditch
Nick Popaditch is a war hero. A Marine for 15 years, Gunnery Sergeant Popaditch became famous when the Associated Press photographed him smoking a cigar while his unit pulled down a statue of Saddam Hussein in April 2003. A year later, Popaditch was severely wounded during fighting in Fallujah -- he lost his right eye and much of his hearing after a grenade was thrown through the hatch of his M1A1 Abrams tank. He was later awarded a Purple Heart and a Silver Star.
Now, Popaditch, bald and wearing an eye patch, is running for Congress in California on a platform of limited government, strong national defense and secure borders. The race inspired a cartoon in the Imperial Valley (CA) Press that didn't go over too well. It depicts two skateboarders viewing a campaign poster of a bald man with an eye patch and cracking jokes about him. Even Popaditch's Democrat opponent criticized the cartoon, and the paper has since made an apology after explaining that they were mocking the skateboarders' ignorance, not the candidate himself. Popaditch said he wasn't offended: "I've got much thicker skin than that." Not surprisingly, the gaffe has raised his profile and may help him in November.
Skate boarder's ignorance? BULL SH*T! The community this paper comes from is 80% hispanic and I would guess half illegal. They are the closest county to Arizona and a La Raza hotbed. The latter makes them enemies of the republic. This paper caters to their philosophies. Yes, Popaditch is a better man than I with his words of not being offended. I for one am PISSED!
A scare tactic? Absolutely. It's not about safety or protection... never has been... regardless of what they say. It's about money. Reality is that the courts have ruled that law enforcement has no 'legal' obligation to respond to your calls anyways. We have always been on our own. More often than not they simply perform 'after the fact' reporting taking. Unless it's by entrapment for profit, they very seldom prevent ANY crime. Protection and preventing crime is up to you and I. To do so... to protect oneself... is a fundamental... God given right we need not ask permission to do. Our government (local, state and federal) can best be described as bad foster parents. They want you solely for the check that comes with you. After that, you're on your own. But that's ok. I'll give up the false security of police protection. Just don't infringe on me doing it myself. Remember... a right not exercised is a privilege that can be denied.
