Five Republicans supported this nomination. This is just more evidence that both political parties are taking us to the same place. There are some Republicans who want a spot in the ruling class… instead of being a true opposition to the party of dangerous communitarian or totalitarian “isms.”
The GOP needs a grand old makeover! It needs to go back to its anti-slavery roots!
When I get the solicitation calls to donate to the Republican party, and try to explain that I do not want ANY of my money to go to support these unprincipled politicians, they cannot guarantee that.
Furthermore… until they have a unified voice, and a PLAN to defeat the vast expansion of government and converse enslavement of the citizenry, they WILL only receive tepid support. Why vote for the republicans who position themselves as “democrat-lite” when I can vote for the real thing? (As if I would!)
My answer to the GOP, you still get NONE of my money! I donate my sweat to those candidates who are actually worthy!Print This Post Filed under government, news, views | Tags: change, conservative, Democrats, government, politics, progressive, socialism, stupidity | Comments Off on Senate approves Obama nominee Kagan to top court
Another decade rolls around and the United States constitution requires the government to count the citizens in order to allocate representation in the House of Representatives.
Question 1 asks “How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment or mobile home on April 1, 2010?” I believe that is a valid question, although it would exclude people dwelling in caves, wigwams and other living accommodations of an unusual nature, but most people living in a cave would probably still answer the question, so that point is moot. This question is the only question the constitution requires the government to ask. The constitution does not require any citizen to answer the question. Most probably will answer so they can have representation in the House.
The question should have used the word domicile to include any type of living quarters. Apparently domicile is considered too complex a word for the average US citizen, so they had to spell out the most common types of domicile.
After that the questions get into murkier waters. Question 2 asks if anyone else was living there that was not included in question 1. Question 3 asks about the ownership of the domicile. Question 4 asks for a phone number to call if the US Government does not understand one of your answers.
Questions 5 through 9 is where they venture into shark infested waters. That is where they ask for my (5) first and last names and middle initial, (6) sex, (7) age and date of birth, (8)whether I am one of several different flavors of latino and (9) exactly what race I am.
5, 6 and 7 are merely invasive. 8 and 9 are downright wrong. The civil rights movement was about making the country color blind. America was the land of opportunity where anyone could work hard and try to be successful, regardless of race, color or creed. What on earth does our government need to know any of this information for? I understand question 1 is used to allocate our representatives. None of the other questions is useful for anything but discrimination. Our government is supposed to be non-discriminatory.
Question 10 is just nosy, asking if you sometimes stay somewhere else.
As you turn the page you see they want to know the full name, relationship to person 1, you, the person answering all these foolish questions, sex, age and DOB, and all the race and ethnic origin as well as other location questions for each person in the house.
Hello! Have any of you read the constitution? All you need to ask me is how many people live under my roof. Looking back at question 1 answers the question “Why are they asking all these invasive, discriminatory questions???” Let’s see question 1 again: “How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment or mobile home on April 1, 2010?” AHAH! it is all an elaborate April Fools joke, All the extra printing costs, all the advertising, all that wasted money is just for a big joke on the citizens of the United States, at our expense, of course.
But then again, it could be that the Progressive elites that run our wonderful nanny state are really just trying to grow the database of information on the citizens so they can be rounded up, classified and disposed of more easily. I don’t know.
I do know this: I am answering question number one. The US constitution does not require me to answer it, but I will graciously do so. This will allow me to be represented in congress. Of course, my vote in November will represent that I want to kick out the elitist trash that thinks they rule over me and replace them with honest, God fearing public servants that want to “Progress” this country away from the totalitarian regime that has crept up on us, back to the constitutional republic our founding fathers set up.Print This Post Filed under government, history, news, views | Tags: communism, conservative, corruption, Democrats, government, socialism, stupidity | Comments Off on Census 2010
This country is so far skewed left, that we no longer know where the middle-of-the-road, politically is. What was considered middle-of-the-road years ago is nor far-right fringe.
View the Texas social studies issue as a small check on a larger problem, and it makes sense. View the Stupak amendment as a move that buys time for such exposure, and you’ll see that, for the moment at least, he is the sanest guy in town.
I do tend to agree, Bart Stupak is the sanest guy in town. I may not agree with him politically, but you have to hand it to the man, he has personal beliefs and they seem to be not for sale.
Let’s hope and pray that he isn’t for sale!

This was an interesting read. I understand the slant of the New York Times, anything liberal is very good, but conservative ideas are shocking and abnormal.
The article seems to carry its intended slant toward dialectic.
The conservatives on the Texas Board of Education seem to be adding balance. Some ideas, like eschewing Thomas Jefferson and Latinos in history are just wrong.
However, it is the liberals who are on the wrong side on McCarthy, the origin of man, the Founding Fathers and especially, separation of church and state.
If you tell a lie long enough, people will believe it! We have been taught the separation of church and state protects the government from religion! It does not, it protects the church from intrusion by the government, read what it says in the first right in the first amendment
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”
You see, if they can weaken or change this basic right, all of the others can be modified to fit the needs of the state, also!
Our founding fathers were very smart, and they knew the Author of our rights was not any man, nor any institution established by man. Our rights are established by God Himself and cannot be taken from us.
It is the goal of the various “isms” vaunted about today to establish a secular government. One that does not recognize God, yet places government in that role. This was the exact opposite goal of the founders.
We are now reaping the fruits of progressivism foisted upon us in a public education system established by John Dewey. These fruits, although appearing beautiful and seemingly harmless, were designed to poison us over time.
Little by little, the ideas of Marx and other socialists, have been gobbled up by Americans in small pieces. They are offered to us under the names of psychology, sociology, evolution and economics. But now, when we find ourselves increasingly burdened by the shackles imposed upon us by these ideas, we yearn for liberty.
It is high time we throw out evil in all of its forms. We must start with the so-called experts who would readily have us shackled in irons under the guise of democracy. Democracy is NOT liberty. Liberty comes from God, Who transcends time and space!
The evil that hides behind a cloak of democracy, is the same evil that established itself in the mind of man in Genesis 3:4-5. It is evil to place the created thing on the throne of God.
Marxism, communism and socialism all place government as god. If then, your rights are established by this god, they can also be removed by this god. These “isms” use code words, one of the easiest to spot is democracy. Democracy is the tyranny of the majority. Democracy is the enemy of liberty.
There is one political party in the United States that has historically been on the wrong side of every moral issue. They have covered their lack of morality with platitudes designed to make all feel good. All the while, removing, in little bits, the very liberty given to you by your Creator.
Choose carefully, those you would have in authority over you. Do they intend to use that authority in service, or for servitude?Print This Post Filed under government, history, news, views | Tags: 1st amendment, america, communism, conservative, Democrats, Evolution, God, government, politics, progressive, Science, socialism, stupidity, the lie | Comments Off on On Education Standards
I watched the Glenn Beck show last night in eager anticipation of something that would make my head explode. His documentary “Revolutionary Holocaust : Live Free or Die” did not tell the half of how many Communism killed in the 20th century.
In fairness, I have to say he did a good job and hit the bullseye on the target he was aiming for. He had four main points:
- Nazi facism was based on left wing socialist philosophy
- Communism and socialism killed millions of people
- Che was a really horrible person that would have killed most of the people that wear his t-shirts and belt buckles and bikinis today
- Progressives revere Mao and Che and work for president Obama
Nazi is a contraction of National Socialism. Progressives try to foist off Hitler as a right wing movement to bash Conservatives. Nothing could be further from the truth. Glenn did a good job of exposing this lie. He connected the eugenics movement that Hitler acted out with the left wing intelligentsia of the day. Glenn glossed over the other people, besides 6 million Jews, that Hitler tried to exterminate, such as the Romany (aka gypsies), homosexuals and dwarfish, mongoloid and other ” physically defective” people. He also did not talk about how popular abortion was in Nazi Germany, just like the Progressives push here at every chance. He did talk about how Hitler supported socialized medicine, the welfare state and centralized control of businesses like they are pushing here today.
Glenn told about the horrible famine in the Ukraine forced by Stalin where seven million or more died. He skipped from there to some of the incredibly brutal mass murders that Mao did. Sure, Mao killed more than 70 million Chinese, but Stalin killed a lot more than “only” seven million Ukrainians. Glenn totally missed all the “purges” that Stalin did, where he gathered people, basically at random” that he considered enemies. He shipped probably twenty million people to his work camps (gulags) in Siberia and elsewhere. These political prisoners were worked to death in massive projects like moving riverbeds with shovels and wheelbarrows. It is estimated that Stalin killed over twenty five millions, not just the seven million Ukrainians.
You can hear about what mass murderers such as Stalin and Mao did in detail in documentaries on the History Channel, among other sources. Glenn only scratched the surface when it comes to the atrocities committed by followers of Marxist philosophy.
Do we really want a president who wants to “fundamentally transform America” into a socialist country run by dictators like Hitler, Stalin and Mao?
True power does not come from the barrel of a gun. It comes in the ballot box. Pray and repent of your apathy that allowed this problem to come up. Register and vote later this year. Get involved in politics. Get to know the candidates to make sure they hold to the conservative, small government principles you hold dear. Then vote them in and vote out the bums, the republican progressives and democrat progressives, that have created the mess America is in today.
Progressivism is totally un-American, despite the cheerful way Hillary talked about it. Progressives at all levels of government need to be rooted out and replaced. We can take our country back.Print This Post Filed under government, history, news, News&Views, views | Tags: communism, conservative, corruption, Democrats, government, Hitler, jews, Mao, obama, russia, socialism, Stalin, the lie, tough times | Comments Off on Glenn did not tell the half of it!
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
A friend sent this along to me. I can’t think of a reason to disagree.
I am sending this to virtually everybody on my e-mail list and that includes conservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. Even though we disagree on a number of issues, I count all of you as friends. My friend and neighbor wants to promote a “Congressional Reform Act of 2010”. It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
I know many of you will say, “this is impossible”. Let me remind you, Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, now is the time when Americans will join together to reform Congress – the entity that represents us.
We need to get a Senator to introduce this bill in the US Senate and a Representative to introduce a similar bill in the US House. These people will become American hero’s..
A Fellow American
Congressional Reform Act of 2010
Based on the premise that serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.
1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.
A. Two Six year Senate terms
B. Six Two year House terms
C. One Six year Senate term and three Two Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension:
A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise or allow an automatic pay raise if they do not vote to stop it.
Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/11 .
The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
We do not need 2000 pages of weasel words. The US Constitution is only 17 pages long and has governed the country for over 200 years. One page of direct points like this will do the job.
Is any politician brave enough to sponsor this bill? We should make sponsoring this bill a requirement for being elected in 2010.Print This Post Filed under email, government, News&Views, views | Tags: change, conservative, corruption, economy, government | Comments (2)
This is a bit old but I think it is worth watching. Rejecting the traditional Republican platform is what got the Progressives to control the white house and congress.
I think we need a new party for the people that are against Socialism. We could call it the “Anti Socialist Party of America”. The only problem I see is that antisocial people do not party very much, so we will have to work on that 😉
Enjoy Ron Paul

VIDEO: The Ron Paul Answer Fox News Hopes You Didn’t Hear
In their re-broadcast of the Thursday night debate, Fox News deleted this segment of Ron Paul as he answered the question, “Since you are so different from all the other Republicans on this stage, are you really electable?” Ron Paul hammers home the best answer of the night!
This is an email I had to post.
For those that don’t know about history … Here is a condensed version:
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel.. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1 . Liberals, and
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement..
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ’s and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. Those became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, great airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans.. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today’s lesson in world history:
It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to tick them off.
