Wisconsin April Election: I am taking it Personal

I am taking this upcoming April election personal! There are mean-spirited, foreign entities coming into my state intending to do my state much harm. These saboteurs have absolutely no concern for the well-being of the majority of taxpayers in my state. These repugnant economic terrorists would rather see a few get rich(er), even if this results in the financial failure of my state. And what is really sad is that there are traitors in this state—traitors are citizens who sellout their own people—who are eagerly seeking to help these terrorists accomplish their goals! (Does the name Benedict Arnold ring a bell?) And what is the main reason that some of our own are selling us out? Money! Like they don’t have enough already? Power! The power to decide what they think is best for Wisconsin  instead of a majority of the taxpayers. These traitors are a lower form of life than even drug dealers. Even drug dealers aren’t traitors—though they are another type of evil.

Again, I consider the outside repulsive foreign leaders economic terrorists. They might not have literal bombs, but they are more than willing to inflict monetary harm on my state. These foreign terrorists say their main agenda is to do whatever it takes to help the “rights” of the working man—NOT! What they are really concerned about is keeping their pockets lined with union dues and the power that enables them to control people’s votes. These foreign intruders are more concerned about feeding their egos and their totalitarian philosophies then they are on really helping workers. Most of these foreign economic thugs are pushing their public union members (my fellow citizens) to wreak economic havoc on my state. (This is why you caring Wisconsin public union employees need to break free from union bonds. As long as they are tied into or yoked to these selfish, self-centered anti-state unions they are not free citizens.) They are owned persons.) Some of these foreign terrorists are here simply for selfish, public prestige reasons. Let us be honest here! How many of you ‘average Joe’ public union employees from Wisconsin really believe Jesse Jackson is here to help you? Jesse is just another type of economic terrorist. He just does it for the attention he gets. As long as his picture is on the local news channels he’s more than willing to bring economic chaos to this state. (Reverend J thinks he’s back in the sixties helping real poor people with real civil right issues.) I do not want Jesse Jackson nor any other outside thug or manipulator coming into my state and trying to tell me that I need to do things their way…or else!

Some of these Wisconsin traitors are now being told by their foreign leaders to bully private business owners — fellow Wisconsinites — into promoting the public unions…or else. Or else what? Who really knows how far these foreign influences are willing to go to use our state traitors to accomplish their goals? I believe these terrorists are willing to use whatever tactics they need to use to economically sabotage my state. It is already obvious that these foreign saboteurs and our own state traitors have no convictions about using dirty judges, union-owned politicians, false political advertisements, and even their own family members to financially ruin my state.

So if for no other reason than eliminating or silencing these foreign bullies — and to silence our own in-state traitors, I am going to make sure I vote April 5th. And not just in April — which is very important — but in every upcoming election. These foreign saboteurs are not going to go down easily. They know they are fighting for their very existence. They know that if they lose this fight their power (i.e., monies, crooked politicians and numbers of followers) will fade away.

What is really sad is that these foreign terrorists know that what Governor Walker is attempting to do is what is best for all Wisconsinites.

Scott Walker

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker

They know that private, public union and non-union employees will economically benefit from what Governor Walker is trying to do. But these foreign thugs don’t care about that— even though they say they do. The bottom line for these foreign terrorists is that they know that if Wisconsin’s citizens unite, to do what is best for the state; these foreigners will lose their grip on even their own members. That is why these foreign miscreants use lies and half-truths to pit taxpayer against taxpayer. A confused people are a defeated people. When a united majority of Wisconsin’s taxpayers show through their votes that they, too, do not want these despicable foreign elements coming into their state telling them what to do, these foreign thugs will move on to another country/state. They will take their economic terrorist agenda to a different state; a state where the people might not stand up for its law-abiding citizens. A state where her citizens might not have each other’s back. A state where the majority of patriotic tax-payers might not be united for the good of the state. So I’m voting in April because I take this foreign intrusion personal! They are on my turf! They are in my neighborhood! They are pushing their economic agenda on citizens in my state. I want them out — now! I want to eliminate these vermin right now. I want the stench of these foreign terrorists out of my state! And as for the in-house traitors — I say love her or leave her! Stand up for what is good for all Wisconsinites, or move out.

Crony-Capitalism Gone Wild !

Crony capitalism * is a term describing an allegedly capitalist economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, and so forth.

Crony capitalism is believed to arise when political cronyism spills over into the business world; self-serving friendships and family ties between businessmen and the government influence the economy and society to the extent that it corrupts public-serving economic and political ideals.

Pictured at left is a very good example of  Crony-Capitalism in it’s most extreme from. Sitting next to Barack Hussein Obama is Mr. Jeffrey Immelt, the current CEO of General Electric.  Obama appointed this crony as the head of another of his do-nothing community organizing-type commissions,  this time it was the  Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.  With G.E.’s history of being the biggest U.S. Job Exporter in history, I find it astounding that Immelt/G.E.  is on this council. Maybe this council should be more aptly titled the Council on how to Export U.S. Jobs overseas and further crush the American economy ?   Mr Immelt was also present when the President of China was given a warm, communism-promoting state dinner in our very own whitehouse earlier this year. Several Media outlets made sure to point out the fact that Immelt is a Republican who gave to both political factions in 2008, while using this fake Council on Jobs announcement to try to make people think Obama is a born-again Capitalist, instead of the far-left ideologue he has proven to be over the last two years of trying to destroy capitalism in America.  Also of note here, is what kind of a Republican would have given money to elect a far left ideologue like Obama back in 2008?  Certain types of  greedy capitalists tend to vote for both sides of the aisle, especially when climbing into bed with the U.S. Government to enrich themselves through Crony-Capitalism is their end goal.

Recently in the news, we saw some shocking reports on how G.E. and Mr. Immelt were shown the favoritism inherent within the Crony-Capitalism of the Obama administration today, in the fact that they will not pay any taxes on over $14 million dollars in profits. In fact, they filed for a $3.2 Billion dollar rebate from the taxpayers! Check out this short video, which is  sure to make your blood boil as you are trying to write  out that tax payment check out soon !

In another version of Obama’s Crony-Capitalism Gone Wild, we have the infamousHealthcare waiver handouts to Obama supporters and assorted  crony campaign puppet organizations. The total number of crony waivers handed out to allow certain people to not have to obey the Obamacare laws is now over 1000, involving  protectionism for over 2.4 million of “his” people. The U.S. House of Representatives held hearings in trying to determine how Obama’s Socialist healthcare puppet, Katherine Sebelius figures out who qualifies for the Obamacare waivers. The Heritage Foundation outlines it all here, in which the following comes to light:

” Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, further questioned the fairness of the application process. He noted that HHS bureaucrats know exactly what company’s application they are reviewing and whether they are union plans. This has arguably led to the disproportional acceptance of waiver application from large corporations and unions. Haislmaier further emphasized that the use of a waiver process has led to a system that is based not on “the rule of law” but rather on “the rule of who you know.”

When discussing Crony-Capitalism Gone Wild and Obamacare waivers , we must not leave the Unions out of the discussion here. RealClearPolitics shines some sunlight on that here, in which the extended arm of Organizing for Barack in 2012 gets some exposure:

” Most noteworthy: One-fourth of all the waivers (182) so far have gone to Big Labor groups across the country.”

And the Service Employees International Union, which poured $60 million into Democratic/Obama coffers in 2008 and millions more into the campaign for the federal health care takeover, added four new affiliates to the waiver list: SEIU Local 2000 Health and Welfare Fund, representing 161 enrollees; SEIU 32BJ North Health Benefit Fund, representing 7,020 enrollees; SEIU Local 300, Civil Service Forum Employees Welfare Fund, representing 2,000 enrollees; and SEIU Health & Welfare Fund, representing 1,620 enrollees.

That’s in addition to three other previous SEIU waiver winners: Local 25 SEIU in Chicago with 31,000 enrollees; Local 1199 SEIU Greater New York Benefit Fund with 4,544 enrollees; and SEIU Local 1 Cleveland Welfare Fund with 520 enrollees. This brings the total number of Obamacare-promoting SEIU Obamacare refugees to an estimated 45,000 workers represented by seven SEIU locals.

The liberal ideologues and their Puppet-Master Obama, along with extra funding from the economic terrorist George Soros and his propaganda arms such as Media Matters, are digging in deep for the 2012 election battle.  All the money and propaganda in the world can no longer hide the fact that they are nothing more than  groups of ragtag anti-American community organizers hell bent on destroying this country. There are 586 days until the 2012 elections, so lets make every singleone of them count, and keep on exposing the anti-American agenda of the leftist ideologues and Obama.  The 2012 elections will make the 2010 massive beat-down of the leftist agenda look like small potatoes, when the hordes of fed-up Patriot Americans hit the polls!

Tax Evasion [Audio]


Russia, Oil, & The Utah Sound Money Act & Why It Matters

Theresa FlemingIt’s hard to overstate the concern that American families have regarding the economy, but one thing we all need to pay more attention to is the value of the U.S dollar. Imagine, if you will, what would happen to your families’ savings should the U.S. dollar truly crash, especially when unemployment and underemployment are both high. Families, if they can, are already desperately trying to save as much money as possible. But what if the money families have so carefully saved for a rainy day could no longer buy even the basic necessities? This is the reason behind bills such as the Utah Sound Money Act.

Although to some it may seem extreme, we do need to prepare for the possibility that there may come a day that the dollar’s buying power will be drastically reduced. And the truth is, Utah is not alone in their concern. According to State Representative Galvez, House sponsor of the bill, 11 states have either passed currency related legislation or have legislation in process. Other states passing or considering currency related legislation include: Montana, Missouri, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington…

The truth is that with the decline in the value of the dollar and the rise of U.S. debt,more and more countries are becoming concerned about whether the U.S. dollar is a good investment. And unfortunately, Washington’s printing of more dollars will not only not solve the problem , it may quicken the devaluing of the dollar.

For those who do not believe that the U.S. dollar may be in trouble, please consider the following: according to The China Daily, China and Russia have used a number of currencies in the past, but especially U S Dollars for “bilateral trades”. However according to a report in The China Daily in November 2010, “China and Russia have decided to renounce the US dollar and resort to using their own currencies for bilateral trade”. The formal announcement was made by Premier Wen Jiabao and Russian Vladimir Putin.

PutinIn addition, Russia has also been reaching out to Europe. In Putin’s appearance in front of top German industrialists at a business forum in Berlin, he called for closer economic ties between Russia and the European Union. In his speech he outlined his vision for the future and his desire to create a Free European – Russian Trade Zone. However, the most critical part of his speech came when he showed what his true intentions may be towards the U.S. In his speech Putin said, that the “Euro is slightly fluctuating, but as a whole it’s a good , stable world currency that should take its rightful position as the world reserve currency. I think over the last 10 years there has been one wrong aspect that we should definitely eliminate. It’s the excessive monopoly of the dollar as the sole world reserve currency. This is certainly something negative.”

However, whether the dollar remains the world reserve currency is not the only concern at hand. As Senate Majority Leader Scott Jenkins said, a more immediate concern may be the efforts that are being made to decouple the dollar from oil. If that occurs, efforts such as the Utah Sound Money Act may well turn out to produce the solution that we need.

But there is some good news as well…

While news reports by their very nature tend to focus on the negative, there are public servants working hard to find a solution to the problems that we face. Utah Senate Majority Leader Scott Jenkins and State Representative Brad Galvez are working hard to find a solution to protect us, and our children, from the potential fall of the US dollar. As Senate Majority Leader Scott Jenkins said, “inflation is hurting the ability of families to purchase the items that they need. With the buying power of the dollar going down, if we do not act the purchasing power of the American family will continue to suffer. We must begin to study potential solutions and we must act.”

And make no mistake, we can no longer afford to sit on the sidelines and hope that someone else finds the answer. As a country we need elected officials who are willing to act and willing to do the research needed to find the best possible way to protect American families and that is why the Utah Sound Money Act and efforts like it are so very important.

As for the legislation itself, The Utah Sound Money Act will not only allow gold and silver coins issued by the Federal government to be used as “legal tender” in Utah, it will exempt them from capital gains taxes. Although the United States Constitution already allows states this freedom, the Utah Sound Money Act would codify this right in Utah law. The law would not mandate that the coins be used, but simply allows people the choice. The legislation also creates a panel to study how Utah families might use the alternative “legal tender” system for every day purchases such as food or medicine. Since the value of gold and silver constantly fluctuates, a system would have to be designed that would provide a practical way for Utah families to use the new system for daily purchases, which is why the panel is being formed.

As for Utah, there’s a reason Americans may want to start taking a look at how they operate and the recommendations made by their state’s leaders. Utah has been named, “the best managed state in the nation and has been salt lake cityrepeatedly ranked as one of the best states to do business”. And it appears Forbes agree, for in their 2010 look at the Best States For Business, Utah was ranked number one when it comes to fostering growth! Check back for more information on exactly how Utah became the “best managed state in the nation” and what public servants such as Senate Majority Leader Scott Jenkins and State Representative Brad Galvez are doing that is making such a huge difference for their state!

Change is always hard, and sometimes scary, but Utah’s system does not seek to replace our current monetary system. However, what it does do is start the process of designing, and planning for a possibly implementation of a secure money system should the dollar fall. And while, as State Representative Galvaz said, we may not like the changes that have occurred in our economy, our job as parents, and their jobs as legislators, is to do our very best to give our children the best possible opportunities to succeed in the world in which we live. And while many of us, including myself, wish that we could return to a simpler time, the fact is, right now, we can’t. But what we can do, is work together to find the solutions that our children will need, no matter what crisis we face.



There is actually a naïve group of people out there in La-La Land who believe that all human beings should be able to just ‘get along.’ Obviously these ignorant dreamers do not know their history. These dream-weavers have spent too much time listening to their hybrid Ghandi/Timothy Leary/John Lennon/Bono influenced leaders/teachers. What these naïve hopers of world peace can’t accept is the fact that people are different. Different because of differing ideologies; social, economic, political and religious ideologies. I too am in favor of peace—real peace! But I have enough brains to know that any nation or people that want to wipe America and Israel off the face of the earth cannot be really trusted to keep their peace agreements. As prove of my theory, I would encourage anyone who doubts me to take their hopey/changey ‘why can’t we all just get along’ peace dream to the middle of some fundamental Islamic nation and encourage them to be more tolerate, more yielding to Western Democracy. I will give you about two hours before you’re arrested or killed.

I shake my head in bewilderment every time I see the bumper sticker which asks, “Why can’t we all just get along.” I’m sure the owner of this bumper sticker would probably have a different political view—at least a differing public one–if they lived in Outer Mongolia during the viscous days of Genghis Khan, or under the violent rule of an ungodly Roman Caesar, or during the blood-thirsty, animalistic SS butchers days of Adolf Hitler.

The reality is there are a lot of people I do not want to get along with. I refuse to casually share a beer with people who baby murderers and rapists. I do not want to live next-door to religious nuts that have no problem using innocent women and children as bomb deliverers. I do not want to be buddy, buddy with people who believe big government is the answer to our social and economic ills. I have no desire to get all kissy and huggy with those people who think that I should pay higher taxes so they can have better retirement benefits. I definitely do not want to be in the same room with anyone who thinks it’s okay to murder innocent babies. And I definitely do not want my kids playing in the yard of one of America’s thousands of free-roaming neighborhood registered sex offenders. I could go on and on with people I do not want to hang with. People I consider willfully stupid.

Purposely wrong. Some are so wrong that I would consider them evil. Remember, light and dark don’t like each other. Good and evil are the same way–they are opposites. Do not tell me you’re my buddy if you put your own selfish desires above what’s good for the entire state or nation. You and I do not see eye-to-eye if you believe it’s a good thing to spend tax-payers money, or for that matter anyone’s money to buy needles for drug addicts, condemns for sexually diseased and/or sexually promiscuous people or assist ‘artists’ complete disgusting things in the name of art.


Like we haven’t already tried that a million and one times! I love meeting the uninformed, ignorant, college-educated liberal who tries to tell me war never solved anything. Obviously any educated person who believes that war played no good part in shaping history was taught history out of the auto-biography of the Three Stooges. I kindly (usually kindly) remind these liberal air-heads when I meet them that the only reason American’s are not speaking (evil empire) German or Japanese and living under an (evil empire) German or Japanese flag is because of war. War has helped to end fascism, communism, socialism, slavery, and barbarism. Hopefully we will get a chance to use it to eliminate fanatical Islamic nuts. America herself is a free nation, full of free people because American patriots were willing to give up their peaceful home life or peaceful farm life and go to war.

I also shake my head in bewilderment whenever I see the bumper stickers like:

Coexist bumper stickerThe C is the symbol for Islam: The C symbol hates the X T and O symbols—and is not afraid to prove it by blowing X, and T up with bombs—even using innocent women and children to do it.

The O is the symbol for peace: The O symbol isn’t even a remote possibility as long as C and J and C and T symbols live next to each other. Also, the O symbol has been tried over and over again in all the other symbols. It didn’t take!

The E is the symbol for males/females: And unfortunately, the curse doesn’t even allow the two parts of the E symbol to get along without God’s help. And the female part of the E symbol lives most times as a doormat for the men of the C, X and T symbols.

The X is the symbol for Judaism: The C symbol doesn’t even believe there is an X symbol and would love nothing better than to completely wipe the X and the T symbol off the map and off this bumper sticker too.
The I is dotted with a Wiccan Pentangle: It doesn’t take a nuclear scientist to figure out that the C, X, S and T symbols believe the I symbol is evil. (‘Good’ witch? Yeah right!) No chance of peace here. Anyone who believes Mother Earth living in my Walnut Trees out back doesn’t real have much of a chance of being taken seriously by C, E, X, S or T.

The S is the symbol for the yin-yang or Confucianism; All one has to say is that S Followers are believers in a YIN and YANG and the symbols C, E, X, I and T are going to think the S symbol is a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Here’s one of the teachings of S: To learn and from time to time to apply what one has learned, isn’t that a pleasure? Deep? Not! Oh, by the way, the leader of S believed war was necessary in order to preserve justice. Sounds like an American Patriot to me.

The T is the symbol for Christianity: The T symbol has tried numerous times to reach the C, E, X, I, and S symbols. Sometimes in unrighteous ways—Crusades. Other times by the Creator of peace Himself. But even the Creator could not bring peace to most of C, E, X, S, I and T. In fact, the people of the X symbol rejected Him enough to kill Him—a man who came in peace. The symbol C, X and I believe the T symbol is mostly a fairytale.


In Wisconsin, a majority of voters legally elected a majority of politicians to fix our state’s budget woes—without raising taxes. So a majority of legally elected politicians attempted to do just that. Unfortunately, those who lost the election—losers, were not willing to go along with the decisions of the majority. So the losers yelled. Then the losers stamped their feet. Then these loser elected politicians ran away. They losers ran so they would not have to do their job. The losers ran so they did not have to get along with the politicians they did not agree with. Then the losers ran and called those people they do get along with—out of state union thugs—for advice. The losers knew the union leaders would help them. These cowardly politicians did not want to get along with Wisconsin voters, but they had no problem getting along with their out of state union buddies. So being the peacemakers that they are, the majority tried to work with the anti-peaceful losers who fled, but the losers who fled were not willing to go along with the peacemakers. So the majority worked and thought, and worked and thought, and then legally passed a law to help our state financially. And still the losers who fled the state stayed away. Worse yet the losers whined and stamped their feet some more. These fleeing losers showed they did not want to be at peace with the majority of Wisconsin tax-payers, or Wisconsin’s majority elected politicians. These deserters did not like the new law which benefited all Wisconsinites. Whaa! So the cried.  Then what did the whiny wittle babies do to show they were not willing to get along with the majority rule? They found a dirty judge who loves whiny wittle babies. And this dirty judge decides she too does not like what the majority of legally elected politicians did, and decides to become a whiny wittle baby herself. This judge sure was not willing to get along with the majority was she? This judge really didn’t have the majority of Wisconsin Tax-payers on her mind when making her decision. Did this fair-minded judge decide peace was best for Wisconsin? No! What’s really disgusting is that this dirty judge is not ruling against Walker’s bill because it is some horrendously evil, anti-human, anti-breathing tax bill. This dirty judge simply did not like how the bill was passed. Once again, another (bad) example of a liberal judge not only ignoring the votes of the majority, but also taking it upon herself to tell the legislative branch of government how to do their job!

People, it is things like these which clearly show why all humans will never get along. There are many of us who are not afraid to call murdering religious zealots evil. And then there are those who believe these type of people are good people. There are many of us who recognize people like Nero, Adolf Hitler, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, Carl Marx, Joseph Stalin, etc. are evil. And then there are those who loved these men. They speak well of them in their universities. There are those of us who appreciate the soldier who is willing to give it all so I and others can be free. And then there are those who hate the soldier for what he does. Yes, there are definitely people, on planet earth that I will never get along with.

There are too many of us who care more about doing what’s best for everyone, and not just doing what’s best to get a vote. There are too many of us who plainly see that socialism never works—no matter how good the intentions. There are many of us who believe it’s wrong to throw babies in the garbage can like a piece of rotten meat. There are many of us who see right is good and bad is wrong. There are many of us who walk in the light trying to expose the deeds of darkness. I thank God that He created both good and evil—light and dark. And I thank God more that He gave us humans the freewill to choose what side we want to be on. Lord help us all to stay strong in the Light; the darkness is getting stronger.


While in a discussion this morning on Twitter, some very deep, real and haunting realizations hit me. Many people may disagree, but I honestly believe the generation of today has it much worse off than we had it as kids. The strange thing is that, being not even 38 years old, I am not what I would consider old.

I chuckle to myself when I think back to the age-old stories of parents telling their kids, “You think you have it bad? When I was your age I had to walk five miles to school- uphill both ways!” And for added kicks and giggles, there was the occasional, “…. and in the snow!”.  Now, I am sure there are people out there that this was indeed true for, but for the majority of people who have told similar stories this is a drastic exaggeration.

I’m sure it was a stern, yet loving reminder to us that we should be grateful for the blessings of the life we have had.

Yes indeed, I was truly blessed beyond measure in my childhood! While I experienced many adversities – many more, the older I got- I still knew that I was indeed very blessed! Oh, this does not mean that I did not complain about my life! But I am sure most children have!

Oh, what I would give for my children to know the America I grew up in! It was not perfect by any means, but I never doubted that I was safe. Yes, as adults, we realize that the definition of “safe” is very subjective. We can walk outside tomorrow and be hit by a car. But in the overall realm of things, as a child, I had the strongest of confidences that I was safe.

Throughout the history of this nation there have been wars and the threat of war. During the “Cold War” specifically, the fear of a nuclear bomb compelled “Duck and Cover” drills. What I find odd is if a nuclear bomb goes off, what in the world is that flimsy little desk going to protect the children from? There we go again with the meanderings of my mind!

Strangely enough, I do not ever recall saying to my children, “You think you have it bad?! When I was growing up……”

What I have said, instead, is, “Oh how I wish you knew the America I knew and love from when I was growing up!”

There is a distinct difference in my tone and meaning from the other statement that we chuckle about.

When I was a child, The Pledge of Allegiance was part of our everyday life. Just last week I saw this news article:
Pledge of Allegiance Returns To NYC School After Parents Complain Daughter Has No Idea What It Is

Now, thankfully, I know for certain that my children do say The Pledge of Allegiance every morning at their school. However, to know that it has become common and acceptable to not say The Pledge of Allegiance every day saddens me greatly! To know that there are children today who have no clue what The Pledge of Allegiance is not only saddens me, but angers me as well!

As I sit here reminiscing about my childhood, I remember going outside to play, riding my bike around the neighborhood, going over to my friend’s house to play or them coming to my house to play. Things are just not the same in today’s society. The America we live in today is so drastically different! In today’s America, though my family lives in a gated community, there is absolutely no way I would allow my children to be out in the front playing without my supervision as we did when we were kids. I do see kids out playing with no adults around, but there is no way I would allow my children to freely roam the neighborhood- even in our gated community- where the crime rate is relatively low compared to many other areas. This is not the America I knew and love. Times are just too different from when I grew up!

Some will say that because of modern conveniences, our children have no idea how good they have it. In one sense, maybe this is the case. However, for me, I see it the opposite way. I believe that because of the modern conveniences our children have no idea how good it used to be!

When I was a child people could actually escape the “rat race” of life. Since there were no cell phones, if you were having a relaxing day with the family away from home, you could not be reached. Now, family outings are regularly interrupted by the chirping of a cell phone- or in many cases- several cell phones! We wonder how we ever made it without these “luxuries”, yet I look back fondly on these times. This is the America I knew and love!  Yes, it does make life “easier” to be able to contact someone at the touch of a button no matter where you are at. But what have we have sacrificed to have that convenience?

This generation has the sum of human knowledge at their fingertips with the internet. They have access to anything their hearts desire. But at what expense do they have these things? The accepted definition of a “family” has been so distorted that it really means nothing to so many these days. Or, if it does mean something it is a negative definition rather than a positive, loving definition in their life.

Because this generation has life “so much easier” with modern technology, the very sad thing is that in reality their lives have become so much harder because they do not know the true meaning of sacrifice. They do not know the true meaning of saving up for something that they want. The majority of today’s kids see something they want and it is theirs. We have sacrificed our children in the process of trying to make life easier for them.

Life is not easy. We learn life’s lessons through the rough times. If all of life was a breeze and beautiful and happy how are we to ever grow?

Our children’s generation- the kids of today- are overwhelming spoiled and rude. Does this mean there is no hope for us or that I do not see many kids with positive things going for them in their lives? No, not at all!  What I do find sad, however, is how often my children are complimented on how very well behaved they are. I am sure you are wondering why this would make me sad. Most parents would be extremely happy that the good behavior of their children is noticed. Yes… I am very proud of my children! While they are by no means perfectly behaved, they do know that they have expectations of how they should act- both in public, and at home. If they do not abide by the boundaries set for them, there are consequences.  But what makes me sad about the fact that my children are so often complimented on their good behavior is that this is no longer considered “normal”. For me, this is just what was expected of me as a child. Did I always obey my rules and boundaries? Absolutely not! But when I disobeyed I knew there would be consequences! This was the way it was for almost everyone I knew.  This is the America I knew and love. Too often in today’s society children have no consequences for their bad behavior. We are teaching them that bad behavior is rewarded. And we wonder why this nation is in the condition it is in? Teaching starts in the home. Unlike what Hillary Clinton’s book touts, it does not take a village to raise a child! It takes loving, involved, disciplined parents! Yes, many other people are involved, but it does not take an entire village to raise that child. That is the responsibility of the parents alone. Now, so many people expect that the government is going to take care of their children. So they do see that it takes the village to raise their children. The government is their village.

It makes me wonder how, with all of the modern medical knowledge and psychological knowledge and advances that have been made, why are we so backwards in our thinking? Why have we not corrected this wrong way of viewing things? But rather than correcting things we tend to be going to the more extreme as a nation. We do not want to hurt the little feelings of a child, so we give everyone who signs up for an activity a trophy whether they participated or not. If you notice I did not say anything about the winners and losers getting a trophy. We have now moved past that. If the kids name is on the list they have to be included in awards so they feel good about themselves!

We are not supposed to tell our children no when they want something because that will also hurt their feelings! And what in the world would we ever do with children who are not happy about something? I mean, come on! They might throw a temper tantrum or something!

So our children now grow up thinking that anything they want they can have and everyone is rewarded no matter how hard they try.

That makes me so very sad. I can’t complain about how hard life was for me, because in the hands of God, those hard times helped to make me the woman I am today. I can only pray that my husband and I are able to raise our children with enough of the view of the America we knew and love rather than what America is becoming.

Too often we do not realize the truth in the cliché, “What does not kill me makes me stronger.” While this is a cliché it is so very true. Our adversities are what teach us. Our hard times teach us to be thankful for the good times in our life. Doing without and sacrificing makes us appreciate the many blessings we have in our life. And even for those who have fallen on hard times, we all have blessings we can be thankful for! There is always someone out there who has it harder than we do.

My kids have no idea of the America I grew up in. They have no idea of the America I knew and love. Though I teach them to have pride in their country, that we, as a nation are exceptionally blessed, the attitude of the America they grow up in today is vastly different than the America I grew up in. So many people take for granted the freedoms we are afforded here every day. Yes, it is very true that our freedoms are being eroded away. However, we are still offered opportunities in this country that are not offered anywhere else in the world. My heart aches, not only for the complacency of our nation today, but also for the disdain that so many people have for this beautifully blessed nation. My question for these people who have such disdain for America is this: If you despise her so much, why are you still here? There are many other countries around the world where you can live under socialism or any other form of government you choose.

The reality is those who despise her have no idea what they are doing. They have the freedom to disagree with the government of this nation or people with opposing views. In many other countries you would be killed for much less!

I truly miss the America I grew up in! Until my dying breath I will cling bitterly to my sweet memories of days gone by. I will teach my children to love this country, imperfect as she is! Maybe one day the America I remember and love will be restored once again! I can assure you… I will do ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING IN MY POWER to make that happen-so help me God!

Hey, Hey, BHO. How Many Wars Do You Have To Go?

Hey, Hey, LBJ. How Many Kids Did You Kill Today? The liberal anti-war movement of the Vietnam era intoned this chant countless times. They used it in mass rallies. They used it any time President Lyndon B. Johnson got up the courage to show his face in public. They used it as a means to an end. They used it ad nauseum. And it worked. Now, 38 years since the last American troops left Vietnam, yet another Democratic president has launched a new war that threatens to bog the U.S. military down for the long-term. President Harry S. Truman started the semantics game during the Korean War by refusing to call it a war. He called it a Police Action. President Barack Obama has borrowed a page from the Truman playbook and is calling his Libyan adventure a Kinetic Military Action (KMA) – whatever the Hell that is supposed to be. Obama gains a couple of talking points with the KMA semantics game. He can claim that he didn’t need the approval of Congress prior to commencing military operations in Libya because it isn’t a war. It’s just a KMA. And he also gains supposed credibility as a tough talker/tough walker with his ass-kicking routine at the expense of a tinhorn Arab dictator. What could go wrong? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Just a few short years after Nancy Pelosi proclaimed dissent to be the ultimate act of patriotism, the peacenik, anti-war; Nancy Sheehans of the country are nowhere to be seen. The total absence of leftist protesters in the face of this ill-advised Libyan misadventure exposes the hypocrisy of the left. The left never was against war – the left just used anti-war protests as a way to leverage them into power. Let’s not kid ourselves here. It was a Democratic president that appeared before Congress after the attack on Pearl Harbor and declared war on Japan. It was a Democratic president that owned the Police Action in Korea. It was a Democratic president that first sent advisors to Vietnam. It was a Democratic president that escalated the Vietnam conflict to the point that we had half a million troops in the jungle nightmare of a war. It was a Democratic president named Bill Clinton that dodged the draft in 1969 but had no problem sending U.S. troops into harm’s way 30 years later in Yugoslavia. And it is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning Democratic President that has interjected himself into Libya – a nation in which the United States has no vital national security interest. Given that track record, who are the Democrats to complain about George W. Bush?

Obama is also taking yet another ill-advised course by placing U.S. troops under NATO command – a move which is schedule to take place tomorrow evening. Can you say UNITED WORLD ORDER? American fighting forces will now conduct military operations under the orders of foreign leaders. Obama has been frantically backpedaling from taking responsibility for his involvement in Libya. He prefers that the New World Order command our troops. He prefers that European leftists and Arab League tyrants take command of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. It gives him cover for whatever might go wrong. And what could possibly go wrong? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Obama’s failure to convince the nation that he had just cause to promulgate the Kinetic Military Action, or war for lack of a better term, in Libya demonstrates once again the hypocrisy of the left. Obama ignores the threat to our nation on our southern border. He ignores the threat to international shipping by pirates off the coast of Somalia in the Indian Ocean. He ignores the righteous cause of the Sunni protesters in Syria. He ignores the growing insurrection in Yemen. He ignores the protesters in Saudi Arabia. He ignores the near certainly of the Muslim Brotherhood gaining complete control in Egypt. He ignores the missile offensive by Hamas against Israeli cities. He ignores the bomb blast in central Jerusalem that has been determined to have been the work of professional terrorists. Instead, Obama chooses to engage as a full participant in the Western campaign against Muammar Qaddafi. Obama is teaching the world a lesson in how liberals conduct war. Obama tells us that the United States will work with its allies to hasten the day when Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi leaves power, but will not use force to topple him. It makes you almost think that Obama is nothing more than Neville Chamberlain in drag. Obama sounds tough. He drops a few bombs. He risks the lives of precious American servicemen and women. But he doesn’t follow through. He has problems defining the mission. He has problems following the mandates of The United States Constitution regarding his duties in regard to obtaining Congressional approval – not very impressive for a man who considers himself a Constitutional scholar. He abdicates command for American troops to NATO, the European Union, and the Arab League. He claims U.S. involvement in Libya is for humanitarian purposes but instead of protecting the Libyan citizenry he allows scope creep to occur and is now demanding regime change.

In Vietnam Redux, Obama is repeating the mistakes of that benighted conflict. A rank amateur in all things military, Obama is now micromanaging three wars simultaneously. Obama ran his campaign on an anti-war platform. But he is governing like a warmonger run amok. He escalated the war in Afghanistan – and lowered the boom on the brilliant General Stanley McChrystal in the process. His waffling on troop levels and his insistence on following a strategy that can’t win is eerily reminiscent of Vietnam – where political meddling resulted in orders that prevented American troops from achieving victory. Now Obama is doing the same thing in Libya. He seems to think you can have a pretend war where nobody gets hurt. He orders the military into action but forbids ground troops – which are a prerequisite for victory. In fact victory appears to be a naughty word as far as Obama is concerned. If we aren’t in it to win it what are we in it for? By no means am I suggesting that the U.S. should be involved in the Libyan “Kinetic Military Action.” But if we are going to be involved shouldn’t we have the aim to achieve victory? And given Obama’s vacillating attitude on the scope of the mission just what would constitute a victory? – Or at least an exit strategy. Or for that matter, what was our entry strategy? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

But no matter what happens in Libya now, Obama owns the mess. General Colin Powell is famous for his statement that if “you break it, you own it.” Obama owns the mess in Libya. He started it. He broke it. It is all his. He can’t blame Bush. He can’t blame Palin. He can’t even blame Bill Clinton. This one is his. To date, Obama still hasn’t loosened up on oil drilling bans in the Gulf of Mexico and in Alaska. He just doesn’t seem to have grasped the concept that with the Middle East engulfed in flames that perhaps the wise thing to do would be to ensure a reliable source of energy for the United States. Or perhaps he simply doesn’t care. Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, has so weakened anti-terrorism initiatives that Obama is going to completely own any future terrorist attacks on American soil. And if the U.S. economy craters it is fully on Obama’s shoulders where the blame will rightly fall. Obama is pursuing economic policies that handcuff the nation’s economy, put workers on the welfare rolls, and slowly squeeze the life out of countless private businesses.

Obama is a disaster for America. It is unthinkable that he isn’t aware what he is doing to America. Oh, he’s aware all right. The problem is that he approves of it. He is nothing more than a communist ideologue that is bent on the destruction of the greatest nation in the history of mankind. He desires for America to become a communist dictatorship in which every imaginable aspect of our lives is controlled by puppet masters. He has a vision of a communist Utopia and he is determined to bring it to pass regardless of the damage he does in the process. Obama’s wars are just one more lever he pulls in order to drain the vitality and strength from America. He is intent on bringing down the American dream and replacing it with his communist utopia.

Isn’t there someone in America who is willing to stand up to this dictator wannabe? Aren’t their patriots in Congress willing to commence impeachment proceedings against America’s first anti-American President? Won’t Congress hold Obama accountable for his flagrant disregard of the Constitution of the United States? Won’t the Supreme Court of the United States step up and declare Obama’s actions to be unconstitutional. Aren’t there brave men and women left in the country who will rise up and defend freedom against this tin-horn tyrant?

Yes, there are patriots who will fight Obama. It doesn’t appear that there are enough of them in positions of power to rid the country of Obama at this moment. But we still have the power of the ballot box. November of 2012 is coming and Obama knows it. The only question is who will be left standing at that time, Obama or us? Let us pray is it us.

Is the Next Libyan Dictator Mahmoud Jibril?

Pictured at left is interim Prime Minister of Libya, Mahmoud Jibril (courtesy of Vincent Kessler/ Reuters.)  He was originally educated in Egypt and then later received his PhD  from The University of Pittsburgh. He is also a former member of Khadafy’s  regime who was working with his son Saif on economic reforms in Libya. While in college Jibril studied under a former U.S. intelligence official in Iran, one Richard Cottam, who later on became a political scientist who’s specialty was the Middle East.  That is a very interesting combination of skills we see there, politics, intelligence, and science. At this point one has to wonder if the intelligence agency employing Mr. Cottam wasn’t the infamous CIA.

When looking at the volatile situations across the Middle East and North Africa today, we hear very little about CIA involvement, but make no mistake, these types of situations have always involved the CIA, in one way or another. Therefore, I find it very interesting how a former Khadafy regime member who was schooled by a U.S, intelligence operative and political-science master has become the  *Interim Prime Minister of Libya* today with obvious American Leftist support.  At least we now know who our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was talking to, when she stated she was in serious talks with the Libyan rebels who had yet to be identified by the rest of the world.  While this guy appears to come out of nowhere, his background proves that he has deep ties to certain American factions, most notably our most left-leaning politicians. Take note to date, that Mr. Jibril has yet to meet with the third most powerful representative of the American people,  the Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner.  Thus the numerous serious questions about our true agenda in engaging in the Libyan civil war illegally.  To get  Congressional approval for the Libyan war action, it would have to go through the Republican controlled House of Representatives, so President Obama just bypassed that Constitutional mandate completely.  So much for real democracy in America today.

Another interesting fact is that while studying in the United States, Mr. Jibril, who in fact went by the name Mahmoud Gebril ElWarfally when he lived in the United States, is in many ways an unlikely leader of rebellion. Also of note is that Mr. Jibril has problems spelling his own name properly or consistently, as in his own company in which he is the President, ” Gebril for Training and Consultancy.” Americans do not trust people who change their identities  in an attempt to hide their past actions, just look at Barry Seotoro, AKA  Barack Hussein Obama, for a good example of that.  Add in the fact that he has been mentored by a U. S.  intelligence operative, and had initially only been talked to by leftist Democrats John Kerry and Hillary Clinton when this whole charade started, and we see a distinct pattern emerging in the Libyan Civil War scenario.

Mr. Jibril , aka Mr. ElWarfally, has some interesting plans for Libya, which include nationalizing the oil industry, drafting a new Libyan constitution, and starting a new Central Bank, similar to what Mr. Hugo Chavez has done in Venezuela. Mr. Jibril also has visions of  installing a new television station in rebel-held territory,  while calling for the dismantling of Khadafy’s own television stations.  To deny anyone, even a ruthless dictator, the right to defend himself in the free speech arena is a very troubling sign indeed. Those plans are more  in line with installing a Socialistic Dictatorship than a true Democracy.

We also see what happens when the United States enters into a Civil war that is none of our business and becomes responsible for meeting the demands of the ragtag rebels seeking to overthrow Khadafy. To keep the rebellion afloat, opposition members are seeking aid including heavy artillery, cash, and the jamming of Khadafy’s television channels. Gene Cretz, the US ambassador to Libya, said his team is still deliberating what kind of support to offer the rebels as it tries to figure out exactly who all the people on the interim council are.

Will Libya end up being a true Democracy when this all plays out, or will it still be in the hands of just another Dictator similar to Khadafy?

Governor Scott announces crackdown on drugs in Florida

Governor Scott announces crackdown on drugs in Florida, including perscription drug oxycodone.

MARCH 28, 2011

comprehensive statewide response to
criminal drug trafficking in Florida

Launches Statewide Drug Strike Force to
assist local law enforcement agencies

Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott announced a statewide law enforcement response for an immediate impact to the criminal distribution and abuse of drugs in Florida .  With support from Attorney General Pam Bondi and Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey, the comprehensive plan will confront criminal drug trafficking in Florida , including, but not limited to, the criminal distribution of prescription drugs.

The Statewide Drug Strike Force will assist local law enforcement agencies by providing intelligence and analytical and investigative support.  Commissioner Bailey will serve as the statewide coordinator of the strike force, and local strike teams will be co-led by Florida ’s sheriffs and police chiefs.

Governor Scott directed that $800,000 in unused grant funds be made immediately available for local law enforcement investigative efforts. The funds will go to the local strike teams to support overtime and other expenses. In addition, he directed other agencies under his purview to support the strike force. The Florida Department of Health and the Agency for Health Care Administration will provide regulatory and licensing personnel, and the Department of Business and Professional Regulation Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco will provide sworn investigators.

Governor Scott also announced the Florida Cabinet’s authorization of the Florida Highway Patrol’s participation, and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater authorized investigators from the Division of Insurance Fraud to support the strike force.

Governor Scott’s plan addresses the multiple threats to public health and safety, including pharmaceutical manufacturers, wholesalers, unscrupulous doctors, storefront pill mills masquerading as legitimate health clinics and street corner dealers. Each level provides an opportunity for law enforcement to intervene and stop the illegal flow of drugs into Florida communities.

“The numbers plainly show that Florida has a serious problem that demands a serious, coordinated law enforcement response,” Governor Scott stated. “ Florida ’s future is threatened by crimes involving drugs, and our local sheriffs and chiefs simply cannot continue to tackle this mounting issue alone.”

Members of Florida ’s law enforcement community who joined Governor Scott for today’s announcement were:

  • Chief Peter Paulding, Gulf Breeze Police Department, and president of the Florida Police Chiefs
  • Chief George Turner, Brooksville Police Department
  • Assistant Chief Marc Hamlin, Tampa Police Department
  • Major Sophie Teague, Tampa Police Department
  • Chief Dennis Jones of the Tallahassee Police Department and third vice president for the Florida Police Chiefs Association
  • Chief Jim Troiano, High Springs Police Department, and Florida Police Chiefs Association district director
  • Chief David Perry, Florida State University Police Department
  • Chief Calvin Ross, Florida A&M University Police Department
  • Sheriff Harrell Reid, Hamilton County , and president of the Florida Sheriff’s Association
  • Sheriff Bob White, Pasco County
  • Sheriff Donald Eslinger, Seminole County
  • Steve Casey, Florida Sheriff’s Association Executive Director
  • Julie Jones, Director of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
  • Buddy Jacobs, State Attorney Association

Background information:

  • 98 of the top 100 doctors dispensing oxycodone nationally are in Florida – concentrated in the Miami , Tampa , and Orlando regions.
  • 126 million pills of oxycodone are dispensed through Florida pharmacies – most in or near Tampa , Orlando , and Miami regions.
  • By far, more oxycodone is dispensed in the state of Florida than in the remaining states combined.

Out of the Frying Pan Into the Fire


Charter Schools Might Be Just as Scary as Public Schools

Today, I learned the hard way how easy it is to get caught up in something that you would want no part of. Thankfully I learned the full story before it was too late.

I am a mother of 5 with kids ranging from 3 to 9 years old and they attend public school- for now!

We have considered private school, but with four children already in school and another one that will be in school in 2 years, the cost of private school is just not a possible choice for us.

This has been an ongoing struggle of mine and my husband’s since our first child entered the public school system. We have contemplated home-schooling, and at one point we were very close to pulling them out of public school mid-year to make that a reality.

We also have considered charter schools. I became aware of the charter school option last year and began researching them. Unfortunately, I still had a lot of unanswered questions by the time school enrolled for this current year so we chose to keep them at their current school.

As the year has progressed we have had several situations come up that have once again left us knowing that we have to make some changes soon.

My husband and I have been praying desperately about what to do. Up until this point neither of us has received a clear answer to our prayers.

Since we are not involved in a church we want to make sure our children have a social outlet. If we do end up homeschooling I know that I will become a part of a homeschooling group so they can have social interaction with kids their own age.

In the midst of our frustration and continuous prayer- just two weeks ago- an “answer to prayer” presented itself through the mail. We received a mail-out about a charter school opening in our area. We read the literature and checked things out online. It seemed to be a very promising possibility! I filled out the online registration form for each of my school age children. We then left it all in God’s hands.

On Saturday I received a call inviting us to the open house which is for tonight. I accepted the invitation with much excitement and immediately called my husband, who was out running an errand. Things most certainly looked as though God was providing us an answer to our desperate prayers!

Now, let me back up just a bit for a couple of side-notes.

We have friends who enrolled their kids in a charter school right after the start of this school year. They, too, have had nothing but issue after issue with the public school system. If it was not one thing with one child, it was another thing with another child. She finally had enough, pulled her kids out of public school and immediately enrolled them into this charter school. She insisted that I should check this school out for my kids, knowing the ongoing issues and frustrations we are having as well.

The more questions I asked the more reservations I had. The principal of the school is Turkish. The school teaches the Turkish language as a foreign language. The school participates in the yearly Turkish Festival in Houston.

She and her previous husband were stationed in Turkey with the military several years ago, so she was very excited about this. Though I could give no concrete reason why, there was something that just did not set well with me after hearing all this information. No, I am not in any way racist against the Turkish people. It just seemed a bit odd to me that a charter school would be so focused on one specific nationality.  If it is about teaching diversity they are most certainly lacking in accomplishing that goal!

Just last week I happened to see a news article stating that the FBI was investigating US Charter Schools with Turkish links. I read the article and thought to myself, “Yep! I knew there was a reason why I was uncomfortable with that specific Charter School!”

I have not thought much about it since reading the article. I vaguely remember thinking that I wanted to tell my husband about it, because we both had reservations with the school our friends enrolled their kids in. As is normal with life, things got busy and it completely slipped my mind to discuss the article with him.

So, here we are back to today. The kids come home from school and I immediately start the shower line. With this many kids shower time has to be planned out.

All of the kids are showered and dressed and are working on homework. We are just waiting for the hands of the clock to tick away so we can leave for Open House. I’ve glanced at the clock a few times, hoping and praying that my husband can be home in time to go with us.

My telephone rings. It is my husband. Before I answer the phone I have a passing thought, “Don’t tell me he is going to be longer than is expected! I want him to go with us tonight!” I answer the phone, and his first words to me were, “We may have to rethink what we are going to do.” I asked him what he was referring to and he tells me that he’s been doing some deeper research into the Charter School after seeing the news article regarding the FBI Investigation. I slapped my forehead, frustrated because I have forgotten to tell him about it!

We began discussing the article and his further research, and it seems as though the new Charter School where we have an appointment is directly tied in with the organization that is being investigated by the FBI! He said he did not want to completely dismiss the idea, because in his research he saw a lot of conflicting reports. Some parents were not happy with the organization, many were extremely happy with it.

We decided that we would still go to check everything out but we would make no commitments until we processed everything, talked about it, and of course prayed about it, above all.

We ended our conversation so he could finish up what he was doing to head home.

As I began tidying up the counter, I picked up the weekly newspaper. My intention was to sort through the coupons, as is my weekly routine, browse quickly through the actual newspaper, and throw everything away that I don’t need. When I opened the newspaper up my heart literally began to race!

Right there on the front page was an article about the new school opening up! No, it was not an article exposing the school as one of the Turkish connected schools that is being investigated- it was simply an article about the ribbon cutting ceremony which is coming up this Friday and the fact that they are seeking more students. Near the end of the article it named the organization they were funded by- as well as funds from the taxpayers of the state of Texas!

I immediately went to the internet and did a quick search on the name of the organization- the Cosmos Foundation and here is what I found.

As I read the article at the above link discusses how there is a huge mystery surrounding the foundation, and the fact that when interviewing the superintendant of Harmony Schools more questions arose than were actually answered. The administrator being interviewed adamantly denied that neither the schools nor the organization have any ties with Fethullah Gulen or his movement which has long-term goal to create a “universal caliphate”.

It article also stated that there is “evidence that the Turkish administrators of Harmony are operating under the Islamic principle of taqiyya or “holy deception.” The administrators for this school system/organization have no problem LYING about who they are and who they are connected with! And yet we are supposed to believe him when he says there is no connection to the radical Gulen?

I am trying to teach my children to tell the TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT, and the administrators of the school I was considering sending them to have no problem with deception if it is defined by their beliefs as “holy” and fits their purpose! I am sure the “tolerant leftists” would urge me not to jump to conclusions! To these people I ask, “What in the world would make me believe they would actually tell me THE TRUTH!?”

Before I finished the article I called my husband back to tell him our plans for the evening had changed, that after seeing the article in the newspaper and doing further investigating there is no way on God’s green earth that I am going to expose my children to this!

Now, I am sure there are people that will read this and call me a racist, a bigot, a right-wing nut, a conspiracy theorist or any other derogatory term that is so often hurled around by the “tolerant leftists”. That is fine- call me what you will! However, last time I check, The United States of America is still a free country- at least at this time!  I have a choice on where my children go to school, whether it is public school, private school, a charter school or home school. If you choose to send your child to a charter school that is part of an organization that is being investigated by the FBI then that is your choice! I will not try to change your mind. You are free to make your choice, leave my choice for my children up to me!

I already have to counter-teach the secular humanism they are being taught in public school! Given the choice I would much rather have to teach against secular humanism than the strong possibility of having to teach against a religion that teaches that “god” instructs you to kill those who do not believe as you do and that it is ok to lie if it is a “holy lie”!

As a believer in Christ Jesus I know what The Bible teaches.  John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” If Islam/Muslims teach that you should kill those who do not believe as you do this is proof in and of itself that it is a religion straight from the thief- Satan- and the very pits of hell! My Jesus came that all that believe in Him will have life- eternal life- to the fullest! Given the choice I cannot imagine how anyone would actually choose to believe in something that seeks to steal, kill and destroy rather than give life abundant. However, millions of people still choose to believe the lies of this religion.

Now, for those who would choose to attack me by saying that not all Muslims are radical, and in fact, most Muslims are very peace loving people who do not believe in killing infidels, then I say that is fine. This is a free country and they have a choice to believe as they choose. I will not try to change their mind or pressure them or persuade them that my beliefs are right. That is not my job. Yes, I pray for these people, because again, The Bible is very clear that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way, the ONLY  Truth, and the ONLY Life. No one… NO ONE- comes to The Father- God- except through Him- The Son. (John 14:6) But I know that there is nothing within my power to change someone’s beliefs. That is left to God and the person themselves, whether they choose to have an open mind and heart.

In the very depths of my heart I feel that we averted a crisis tonight. If we had moved our kids from public school to this charter school that is directly connected with the schools that are being investigated by the FBI I believe with every fiber of my being that we would have been jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. Yes, we still have another crisis of sorts to deal with. We know that public school is not the answer for our children. We know that we must make some very difficult decisions very soon. For now, our prayers and our search continue. We have reached a point where we know we have to make a change in our children’s education.

Parents, BEWARE! In your frustration with the state of our public school system I warn you to not allow desperation to take over. I believed that this was possibly an answer to our fervent prayers for a solution in our frustration with the public school system. Sometimes what we perceive as an answer from God very well could be from Satan.

One thing that I learned in my searching is that the taxpayers of Texas pay $41 million a year to this organization to run these charter schools. I also learned that Texas Congressman Randy Neugebauer- a Republican- supports these schools, and former President George W. Bush invited students from the Academy to The White House. And now the FBI is investigating them because these schools appear to be breeding grounds to accomplish Gulen’s goal of a universal caliphate!? Yet another reason why I do not trust a single one of our elected officials!

Clinton/Gates Prep Nation for Obama’s Libya Spin Tonight: Fox left out again

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates made the rounds on the Sunday talk show circuit in a seemingly weak attempt to explain to the nation our unexplained involvement in the Libyan Civil War of 2011.  Let’s see here, they were on ABC’s ” This Week, ” NBC’s ” Meet the Press ,” and CBS’s ” Face the Nation. ”  Wait a minute, isn’t there a Sunday show on Fox ? Isn’t our Government supposed to be accessible to all major media networks ?  Then why would they refuse to go on Chris Wallace’s ” Fox News Sunday ” show ?

To say the least, Chris Wallace was somewhat surprised at the blatant unfairness in the Obama administration’s decision in not making Clinton/Gates available to ” Fox News Sunday, ” and its millions of viewers.  I personally caught the slight right away, and refused to give my viewership stat to the MSM Obama puppet propagandist stations, instead I was relegated to reading about it on the internet. However I did catch the following video clip from Fox News, explaining it :

This is typical of the Obama administrations pattern of picking and chosing  just who gets access to the important governmental officials of the last two years. How the entire American population can sit around criticizing other nation’s dictatorial treatment of the press, while allowing this kind of  denial of access to Fox News is beyond rationalizing. This also goes against the promise that this administration will be the most open and transparent in our history. Apparently that open government, now means open, only to those who fail to hold this administration’s feet to the fire for engaging in an illegal war in Libya without the permission of Congress. Open only to those who get all tingly when Obama speaks, while ignoring the blatant lies and misinformation coming out of the Whitehouse today.

These kinds of  pathetic manipulations of our media should not only be condemned by all Americans today, but also by the cronies that Obama is favoring here. Think about this after we take over the U.S. Senate and Whitehouse in 2012:  How about our new Republican President denying all the Obama media puppets access to anyone in our government for four straight years and only letting them go on Fox News ?  Maybe we will let  ABC, CBS, and NBC show reruns of all the Fox News  Sunday interviews during the following week, when it is already yesterday’s news. Think about that.

Another Wisconsin Soldier Died Today

Sadly, another ‘soldier’ died in Wisconsin this week. This ‘soldier’ died in the line of duty — in Wisconsin. He did not die at the hands of a foreign terrorist. He was not killed by a bomb hidden in a nearby garbage pail. He was ambushed by one of his own. This ‘soldier’ thought he was in friendly territory – he was mistaken.

It was great to see so many fellow ‘soldiers’ come to honor one of their own, but he was also one of ours. More Wisconsinites should have been there to honor him on this, his day of rest. When any responsible, dedicated Wisconsin law-enforcement officer dies in the line of duty, all Wisconsinites should be sad. He was one of our boys.

Dedicated, responsible Wisconsin law-enforcement officers are Wisconsin’s soldiers. They are the ones we must trust to uphold the Laws of the land. They are the ones in the trenches doing the fighting. We always expect them to do the right thing. We always expect them to look out for the good of the citizenry. We should honor what they do for us when they pay the ultimate price.

Craig Birkholz, I salute you for giving .. everything. I know you didn’t want to do that. I know you didn’t want to leave behind a young wife, family and friends. Unfortunately, the scenarios of Craig’s situation are quite common in a law officer’s line of work. I don‘t know the whole story behind the killing, but Craig should not have even been shot at—especially by one of his fellow citizens. I believe the coward who killed Craig (and wounded another officer) did the right thing by taking his own life. It is not always a ‘bad thing’ to know that a life ended—especially in the case of this slime-ball. He must have known that he was a turn-coat. He knew he had killed one of his own; a fellow Wisconsinite; an innocent man. This killer’s death means there’s one less person out there that law-enforcement officers have to be concerned about helping at the possible cost of injury or life.

Unfortunately, many in this state (and in this nation) have lost their respect for law-enforcement authorities. I believe there are a few reasons why:

  • Some people have lost their respect for law-enforcement officials simply because these criminals are wicked, worthless individuals. (Even the Bible calls some people worthless. No time for theology message right now.) These rebellious, arrogant, worthless people are the kind of people who have no respect for life–anyone’s life; they don’t care about authority; and they have no fear of the ‘system’ (even if they do get ‘caught.’) Some wicked, worthless people have come to like the cushy three hot meals and a cot ‘program’ that’s going on in most America’s prisons these days. After all, they know that they’ll only be behind bars for a short while. And they know they’ll get great (free) medical help and can even get a college degree if they so choose. (If we’re not going to ‘hang’ (guilty) people who murder and rape innocent, law-abiding human beings–especially the law-enforcement-like people who put their life on the line each day, we are a dying society where anarchy will one day ‘run the system’. (P.S. I know of many law-abiding citizens who would volunteer (in a heart-beat) to be part of the building crew for the hangman’s gallows.)
  • Some of us have lost their respect for law-enforcement people because they see hypocrisy in their line-of-duty. Some of us see police officers who have more concern for political ‘buddies’ than they do for others. Political or racial favoritism is not a good ‘quality’ in a cop. Especially when we see law-enforcement people ‘favoring’ evil over good or wrong over right. It’s a concerning thing when any Wisconsinite sees law-enforcement officials ‘over-looking’ or worse yet, ‘encouraging’ ‘division’ among its citizens. (P.S. Don’t ‘sign up’ if you can’t keep your political bent or racist prejudices to yourself.  I want to know that you’re going to (really) be there to help those who don’t wear the union label. I want to be reminded (through your ‘fair’ arresting) that there are ‘slime-balls’ of all colors out there in the world.)
  • A lot of this ‘disrespect’ for law officers is a result of a ‘soft on crime’ mentality. Some human beings (usually ‘tree-huggers’ and ‘girly-men’) foolishly think we can ‘love’ all criminals back to being responsible citizens. Some people (usually ‘tree-huggers’ and ‘girly-men’) see good, decent, dedicated law-enforcement people as being too tough on crime. Their wrong! (Pretty soon America will be handing out squirt guns to our officers.) Some criminal punks need to be ‘roughed up.’ The great philosopher Forrest Gump got it right, ‘Stupid is as stupid does.” Simply informing a criminal (that what they’re doing is wrong and against the law) will not make the criminal more responsible. Many criminals simply don’t care about the wrong they do. A little bit of ‘hippie love’ is not going to change that. Some criminals simply need a little ‘whooping’ in order to overcome the ‘errors of their ways.’ Others need to be ‘removed’ from the role-call. P.S. No matter how much you want a wild African lion or wild Alaskan Grizzly Bear to love you, they’ll ‘eat you up’ the first chance they get. (Just read about Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend; they ‘loved’ Grizzly Bears to death.)
  • Another reason many people don’t respect law-enforcement officials is that some have become desensitized to what exactly is right and wrong; good or evil; honest and fair. We have a whole generation of kids who have ‘grown up’ ‘robbing, kidnapping, raping and murdering people’ with computer games. (Don’t even try telling me that these violent computer games (and violent, anti-authority movies and songs) have no real bearing on a young person’s life.)  I can’t even legally write (in this story) some of the words that are in today’s music, movies and computer games. There are actually ‘games’ out there which will ‘allow’ a person to rape another human being–and they’re being sold in American stores. Shame on us! P.S. Mom and Dad. If you let ‘society’ ‘teach’ your children that all they are is another (type of) animal (in the evolutionary process) don’t be shocked when they begin to live like one. After all, in the animal world it is survival of the fittest!

Law-enforcement officials must continue to be committed to protecting all law-abiding citizens in exactly the same way. I do not ask you, I do not expect you to put your life on the line to ‘protect’ slime-balls. Unfortunately, in your line of work, you don’t always find out about the worthless form of life punk who wants to harm until it’s too late.  Thank you for your dedication. Thank you for your service to a people who don’t always honor you.

Operation March Sadness

It’s not every day that state employees are caught on video threatening, lying to, and blatantly stealing from innocent citizens—but that’s exactly what happened on March 25 in a quiet neighborhood in Claymont, Delaware.
With the help of the Delaware State Police, a horde of Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) workers rumbled through two subdivisions early Friday morning, uprooting street-side basketball hoops with a front-end loader and roughly piling them into a dump truck. Operation March Sadness, as it has been nicknamed by outraged locals, was the state’s response to the complaints of a neighborhood grouch, who felt that games of street ball were hazardous to children and drivers alike.

Melissa McCafferty, who lives in a peaceful cul-de-sac, scrambled up her kids’ basketball pole to protest its removal. After unsuccessfully trying to persuade her to come down, and, she claims, threatening to tear the pole down with her on it, the crew moved on. But as her husband, John, was being interviewed by a reporter for the News Journal, the posse returned. The video of the resulting confrontation, posted on, immediately went viral.

The family’s vehicles were parked under the pole to prevent its removal. In the video, John and Melissa are threatened with arrest if they do not cooperate. After being told that he could keep the pole—“They’ll lay it in your driveway”—John begins yelling when the pole is knocked down and loaded into a truck. “You just told me I can keep it. You lied!” he exclaims, incredulous. “I did not,” is the cold reply. McCafferty is ordered to go into his home and stop taunting the workers. Admirably, he refuses, citing his First Amendment rights, and stands in the front yard with Melissa as state employees steal a basketball hoop that had been in place for sixty years, with the indirect assistance of state cops sauntering around like the jack-booted thugs of some third-world dictator’s private security force.

A state law passed in 2005 empowers DelDOT to remove objects within seven feet of the pavement in subdivisions, so Operation March Sadness might have been legal. But does the law require officials—including officers of the Delaware State Police—to behave like arrogant bullies? Does it encourage them to lie to law-abiding citizens? And where, exactly, does one draw the line between “removal” and theft?

Of course, a law is a complex thing. There are good laws that ought to be obeyed, bad laws that ought to be repealed, and very bad laws that ought to be disregarded. As a society, we recognize the importance of nonviolent civil disobedience, which is often the citizen’s only option when government crosses the line. McCafferty wanted to file an injunction in Chancery Court, but was not given time. His choice: To yield before police-enforced injustice, or to be arrested?

As for the details of the law in question, seven feet of a homeowner’s yard is quite a bit of ground, particularly in a subdivision. Is there such a thing as property rights in the modern United States, or are we truly the subjects of a government that owns everything? Assuming that property rights cannot legitimately be stripped away or infringed upon by state legislators, this law might not be deserving of Delawareans’ compliance.

As for the state employees who were involved in Operation March Sadness, they should, at the very least, be required to publicly apologize to the victims of their bullying. Considering which party controls the First State, they’re more likely to receive a pay raise.

Medicare Premium Increase Means Trouble for Seniors, States and Workers

EmergencyA large portion of Medicare recipients and individual States should ready themselves for what should not be all that shocking: Obamacare didn’t bend the cost curve down – at all. Medicare premiums for 2012 are set to rise to $113.80 per month, an almost 20% increase over the $94.60 2011 premiums,  which will hit fixed-income earners and cash-strapped States with an increasing burden.

Social Security recipients will be the first hit. As an Associated Press wire reported, the first COLA increase in years will likely be wiped out by increasing health care premiums.

“The government is projecting a slight cost-of-living adjustment for Social Security benefits next year, the first increase since 2009. But for most beneficiaries, rising Medicare premiums threaten to wipe out any increase in payments, leaving them without a raise for a third straight year.”

Secondly, those low-income earners on Medicaid will not be hit with the increasing premium – it will instead be passed on to the state providing the Medicaid. This will cause a pass-thru cost to state income and sales tax payers. As almost all states are facing tremendous shortfalls due to entitlement mismanagement such as this, more and more costs will be passed on to taxpayers and more services will have to be cut to avoid default.

In 2010, Medicare premiums were the same as they were in 2009. All this before Obama’s health care reform was passed. Now that we’ve had more than a year of liberal health care planning and management, a 20% increase in premiums comes due and Donald McLeod from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services hinted that even the Obama administration wasn’t prepared for the increase. Mr. McLeod pointed out that the President’s budget projected Medicare premiums to be $108.20, not the $113.80 that CMS expects.


U.K. Riots are Not Grass Roots

On Saturday, tens of thousands of  U.K. protesters marched, firebombed and destroyed property to show that their disagreement with cuts that the British government has to make to keep it’s deficits in-check. As this pressTV video illustrates, it’s actually a UNION-organized event.

Of course, Americans have nothing to fear. “That could never happen here!” Right? .. right?.. Of course not .. well except that thing in Wisconsin or even more recently, Stephen Lerner’s push to have unions, community organizations and those that would follow them – create yet another financial crisis.

I imagine the British people didn’t think this kind of chaos could occur in the heart of their country either, but it did.

These things didn’t come from a few middle-class families getting together to protect a hard-earned right. These acts are being performed by greedy citizens that do not understand that they have simply run out of “other people’s money”.  The government has taxed “the rich” and corporations to the point that they have begun hoarding cash, moving operations, their wealth, and in some cases themselves out of the country.

As tax revenues diminish due to overly progressive taxation, the government loses its ability to provide the services to which these selfish protesters feel they are entitled. And we all know what spoiled little children do when they don’t get there way.. (if you don’t –  see: that video at the top of the article).


School Breakfasts = Less Family Time

         When I was in elementary school, we got up early and our parents made us eat a good breakfast before school each day. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we heard over and over again. Do your homework before you are allowed to go out to play, keep your room clean if you want your allowance, do your house chores or you will be grounded etc.  Rules, rules and more rules.   My Mother never backed down in taking on the personal responsibilities that come with raising a family. My Father departed this earth at an early age.  There was no bigger government welfare check coming in on the wings of a unicorn just because we were blessed with a family of six children. My mother raised all six children by herself  for an extended amount of time before she remarried, and she worked two and three jobs to keep food on the table for many of those years, yet never once did she stoop to taking handouts from the government that were taken from other hard working people in the form of taxes.  That is not how we were raised. You want something, children included, and you got off your rear ends and worked for it.

         We brown-bagged our lunches, which many times contained the dreaded bologna sandwich which we all hated, but ate anyway, lest we go hungry. Mother always tried to make sure we had fruit and other healthy foods when possible, but sometimes we just had the plain old bologna sandwich. We sometimes had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and lemme tell you, we considered ourselves to be the richest kids around when we saw the P B & J in ourlunch !  Imagine my disgust when I encountered the following announcement in a local newspaper about the breakfast and lunch for irresponsible parents in Pasco County, Florida. Keep in mind that a good percentage of these students are enrolled  in the “free” program. Of course it isn’t free to the taxpayers of this nation. Here is the menu for Pasco County Schools:

We are a self-funded department, using only federal funds, grants,and monies generated from the sale of school meals and catering to provide a nutritious, low cost school lunch and breakfast to Pasco County students.  

     Excuse me, but what part of self-funding includes the heavy dose of Federal tax money you admit to above ?  While the mission statement sounds great on paper it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that this program needs to be looked into further here. Just what gives the school board the right to take breakfast time away from responsible families in order to further dig into tax funding that promotes less family time and  ignores personal responsibility? A further look at their web page mentioned above talks about things such as “summer feeding.”

Pasco County FNS offers breakfast, lunch, summer feeding, and after-school snacks programs to Pasco County students enrolled in public and charter schools, day cares, Headstart and Early Headstart programs, and infant feeding programs.  We also offer an Adult Meal Program for administrators and their staff, and cater meals for school-based functions.  We serve approximately 2.25 million student breakfasts and 6.2 million lunches annually. (emphasis mine)  

        After school snacks? Why not dinner too? Why send the children home at all, if irresponsible parents want the government to feed and raise their children ?

    Under the school price menu above, how many of the students that qualify for the next to nothing cost of those meals are also receiving food stamps ?  Are there checks and oversight to ensure that an irresponsible parent(s) that doesn’t make the effort to properly feed their own children at home, has the equal amount deducted from their food stamp entitlement  to prevent them from being a double-dipping deadbeat on taxpayers wallets ?  I will tell you that the answer to that is no.  This is an extension of welfare benefits for largely irresponsible people that feel it is the job of the hard working people to support their irresponsibility. Breakfast, Lunch and summer meals when school is out ?

     Meal time was a family bonding time in our house. Problems were discussed and dealt with together. Lessons were both taught and learned at the table. This instills family unity and teaches personal responsibility in helping to prepare the family meals and cleaning up afterward. It also helps build a substantial work ethic, that says if you want to eat, you will help prepare the meal and clean up afterwards, or at least it did in my upbringing.  Today,  the nanny-state welfare mentality is not only proving to be a big cause of America’s economic problems, but it is also enabling the destruction of our society’s family values, where children are no longer taught the value of a dollar, and the fact that you have to work for what you want out of life.

    Yes indeed breakfast may still be the most important meal of the day for our children, but the true value of it comes from the family bonding and parental guidance we receive at the table, not just the nutrition. This is a start to their school-day,  so why not send them off  with the confidence and support that only a parent’s love can give.

 The District School Board of Pasco County participates in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs.  Through these programs we offer free and reduced-price meals to students from families who meet certain income requirements determined by the U.S. Government. Each new school year all students that wish to participate in the free and reduced-priced meal program must submit a new free and reduced-price meal application. Students are qualified for free or reduced-price meals through three (3) different methods. The first method is through direct certification; the second is through students that are identified as a homeless or migrant student; and the third is through the free and reduced-price meal application process.

Qualification Methods

Direct Certification

This process involves a computer match of district students to information provided by the Department of Education, which marks students in families receiving Food Stamps, TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), and FDPIR benefits as eligible for free meals at their school sites. If you qualify, you will receive written notification on approval.

Homeless, Migrant and Runaway Students

Students that are identified by the district as Homeless, Migrant, or Runaway are entitled to free meals at their school site. For Homeless, Migrant, and Runaway students to receive free meals, the district’s Homeless, Migrant, and Runaway Liaison must certify, sign and submit a listing of students that are recognized as homeless or migrant. Food and Nutrition Services District Office must keep the student list on file at the Food and Nutrition Services District Office. These students do not have to submit a meal application.   

       Who says there is no such thing as a “free lunch?”  It is all free for the non-tax paying career welfare families. It is just the fact that the working families carry the burden of supporting the irresponsible baby-makers which are the mainstay of career welfare families, which is  the disgusting part they don’t want you to know.  This FNS  “company” should be made to operate without any taxpayer funding. Waste, fraud and abuse are always rampant when you have a company that is half-private and half government-run. I am going to pursue the FNS salary structure, and see just what that turns up in the near future.

In Pasco County, Superintendent, Heather Fiorentino, makes $136,776 which leads a list of 15- hundred thousand dollar employees.
