A Financial Opportunity Promotion
Mood:  surprised

I usually don't do this but I'm going to give you an advertisment!  I was thinking the other day and came to the conclusion that there are a lot of people who need help and if I can provide a way for people to help themselves all the better!  So I've created a Financial Opportunity website.  On this site are links to ways and possible means to help you financially and also help you develop differenct areas of your life.  Take a look and open your life to new possibilities! As Sam Crowley say - Let Everyday Be Saturday!

God Bless!

You Get What You Want To Believe Despite The Facts
Mood:  down

Well, America, you went and did it.  You fell for the media lies and Obama bin Laden's lies about how he's going to help us all be better off...better off for him and his gang that is!  Here's what Comrad Obama's going to really do:

1)Redistribute wealth from the 43% of us who pay taxes,  Take away the wealth and profitability of the 2% who creat jobs for Americans and give it all to the 55% who refuse to work,  This is called Socialistic Redistribution.

2)Amnesty to all illegal aliens in the country who steal jobs from hard-working Americans and  penilize border agents who are doing their jobs protecting our borders.

3)The continued murder of 4200 babies a day due to abortion on demand.  I call that breaking God's commandment of 'Thou shalt not kill'!

4)Anyone making 42,000/yr or more will be taxed at a high rate.  Talk about a disincentive to produce and work.

5)Steal money from the treasury and use it to better himself and those who helped him swindle the American people.

6)Raise taxes so he can steal more of your money.

7)Eliminate the US's sovereignty of full control of our foreign policy, of which he has no idea about foreign policy, and give it to that prissy sissy group called the UN, which hates us anyway.

8)Claims to be a Christian but woe to anyone who's religion is not Islam.  Islam would very well be the state religion.  Better hide your sacred scriptures from the thought police!

9)Closing of temples and churches who are hostile to the anti-Christian, anti-God movements of socialized society.

10)Silencing of public opinions, especially when its contrary to the liberal, commie, pinko way of thinking and doing.

11)Abolishing the Constitution by interpreting what our founding fathers 'really' meant instead of plain context.  Especially vulnerable are the first amendment of free speech and the second amendment promoting gun ownership.  But the 16th amendment added late will be highly revered to the agenda of the demoncratic congress and administration for the trillion dollar pork they propose.

12)Accumulate so much wealth for himself but leave the American people impoverished and homeless.

13)Bankrupt the coal and oil industry without allowing concurrent studies and development of new forms from the future.  He wants you to ride horse and buggies but then again you might be taxed on horse manure contamination!

14)You can have your faith but don't bring it out in public.  You might offend them, and we don't want to do that!

15)Blame his ignorance on the republican party and the American people, especially the Bush adminstration, when in actuality what we are going through you can blame on Clinton and the democrats.

16)The rise of secular humanism and the emergent society.  All things are relative and true for you!

I'm getting petty here, and we could go on forever, but you can see what Obama promised and what the truth is, which is one eighty.  Barack Sadam Husseign Obama bin Laden is a lier and a crook.  You think Nixon was bad!  And the American people are stupid enough to grasp hold of lies and fail to research it to see if it is true or not.  Just because he has dark skin, people will vote for him.  Now, I don't care what skin you have.  I'm concerned with honesty, integrity, truth, and the issues.  Obama fails all of that!  You wanted change, well you're going to get change  You will feel it about 100 days in the wrath of Obama.  In two years the people will either worship him or he will be impeached or in jail for fraud.  The problem is the judges will probsbly be on his side and to heck with Truth.  He would have declared himself king and god at the same time.  I really don't know if he's the anti-Christ from the Bible is not clear, but I can tell you he comes real close!

So, you wanted change?  You got it!  But I think it will be change you never expected!

A lady in an elevator said hi to me and asked how I was doing.  I said "OK but I am concerned about this election."  She said "Don't worry.  Everything is OK."  I replied "I doubt that."  She relied "We'll all get what we want!"  Can you imagine a statement like that!  How complacent and ignorant! You won't get what you want.  That's Obama's lie to you.  You get what he wants and you won't like it a bit.  I can just see your puzzled faces as you stand in line at the unemployment office and no place to go.  Welcome to the United States Socialistic Republic!

This will probably be the last input for this election, but you will be inputting rage for at least the next 4 years!

 

Until Next Time America!

A Prayer For Our Country
Mood:  not sure

With the voting going on tomorrow and the fiasco that the media has drummed up, I believe it is appropriate to say a prayer for our country.  For after tomorrow, it will never be the same...and mostly not for the better!

 

Dear Almighty God, Infinite, Omnipresent and Omnipotent, we ask for Your wisdom and Your will be done as we choose another president of the United States.  We ask for discernment as we vote and ask that no matter who wins that that person will be an instrument of Your will.  May we be wiser each day and that the challenges that face us in the years to come be conquered and never faced again.  May the vote go to the one who acknowledges You and believes for a better world of Godly morals and values.  May the US be stronger and may the Godly Consitution be upheld and strengthed each day.  May our lives be better off and may we prosper and be stewards of Your world and finances.  May integrity and honesty be upheld and may Your Word be brought forward.  Bless us O Lord and lead us on the right path.  May those who vote tomorrow take into consideration those things which You desire and not our selfish greed.  We pray this in Your precious Son's name, Jesus, Amen.

Thank you all and may God bless America!

You Think About That!

Until Next Time America!

Obama and ACORN - A Summary
Let’s summarize: 
1)Barrack Obama claims he has no association with ACORN 
except representing them in a lawsuit against his state. 
 
2)An ACORN “Community Organizer proudly states in an article 
for a Socialist magazine that Obama returned every year to “run 
the session on Power” at ACORN’s “leadership training sessions.” 
 
3)Obama first lied on his website, claiming he had never done 
training for ACORN, because he knew that open association with 
a radical Socialist group would damage his campaign. 
 
4)When he realized that there was abundant proof on the web 
that he HAD been an ACORN trainer, he quickly changed his website 
to read “ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any 
type of employee.” That’s true. He was never “hired” because he 
was a volunteer. 
 
5)Obama pays and ACORN group $800,000, supposedly for sound 
and lighting work. When he is caught in the lie, he tells the Feds 
that $600,000 was really for “get out the vote” work. 
 
6)ACORN’s “get out the vote” work in Ohio results in 600,000 new 
voters, 200,000 of which are probably fraudulent. ACORN workers 
convince uneducated people to register as many as 70 times, using 
names like Mickey Mouse and the whole Dallas Cowboys lineup. 
 
7)ACORN registers illegal aliens, felons, children and dogs. 
 
8)Obama defends ACORN, using their exact “talking points” when 
he claims that “voter registration fraud” is not the same thing as 
“voter fraud.” 
 
9)ACORN started the housing crisis with their “Community Organizing” 
efforts, along with threats of lawsuits and accusations of racism 
against lawmakers who wouldn’t follow their radical Socialist agenda. 
 
10)Obama and his party try to give billions of dollars to ACORN as 
part of the $700 Billion Bailout Bill. 
Thanks again to Mr. Tom Barrett for the above information. 
You Think About That!
 Until Next Time America!

McCain/Obama Administration Comparison
Although this has a McCain slant to it, I found this very interesting.  
I still think that both major parties are evil for the country.  Palin is 
the only one that has the guts to stand up for what she believes 
and to face the liberal fascists face to face!  My thanks goes to Mr.
 Tom Barret of Conservative Truth.  I give him all the credit for the 
following.
__________
Let's take a look at how a McCain-Palin and am Obama-Biden administration 
would change the face of our nation over the next four to eight years.
ON FREEDOM
Although Obama and Biden talk about how they will "fight for America," 
as Sarah Palin often says, John McCain is the only man in the race who
 has ever fought for his country. As President he will continue to fight 
for our freedoms.
Obama has been very frank about his plans to cut "tens of Billions" of 
dollars from the military budget, and has said, "I will slow the 
development of future combat systems." He naively believes we 
should give up our nuclear weapons, and believes other nations 
would do the same. He has pledged to unilaterally disarm our nation. 
 Both he and Joe Biden support the pernicious erosion of our national 
sovereignty represented by the United Nations.
ON FAMILY
Both John McCain and Sarah Palin believe Roe v Wade was a 'flawed 
decision." They believe the protection of the law extends to unborn 
children, special needs children, and the elderly.  They believe that 
marriage is an institution instituted by God between on man and 
one woman.
Obama and his party support the unfettered "right" of women to kill 
their babies, even at the momentof birth.  They believe it is right to 
kill a baby because it might be born with a birth defect.  They support 
euthanasia of elderly, inform citizens if it is 'their choice."  And, 
although both Obama and Biden use lots of political double-talk to 
qualify their statements, they believe in the "right" of homosexuals 
to marry.
ON GOVERNMENT AND TAXES
Both McCain and Palin have long records of working to reduce both 
the size of government and the taxes that feed the monster.
Obama and Biden believe in massive government and crushing taxes.
  Obama's ridiculous assertion that will reduce taxes on 95% of taxpayers
is worse that naive - it is an outright lie.  40% of Americans pay NO 
income tax at all.  Obama's idea of "reducing their taxes" is to send 
them "refund" checks.  These "refunds" would be welfare, taken from 
out taxes.  And if the 5% were taxed 100% of their income, it would 
not cover the budget, much less the almost $1 Trillion in proposed 
spending that he has dangled before Americans as bribes to vote 
for him.
ON THE ECONOMY
John McCain and other Republicans warned or the danger that the 
corruption at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac posed to our economy, 
and McCain proposed legislation to regulate the two giant government
 sponsored enterpirses (GSE's).  The bill was defeated by the 
Democrats.  In a Senate hearing televised in 2004, Republicans 
pushed hard for reforms, prophetically warning th exact, disasterous 
consequences we are experiencing today.
Obama was the second largest recipient of bribes in the form of 
campaign donations from lobbyists for the corrupt GSE's.  During the 
2004 hearings, Democrats cursed the government regulators who 
brought the problems to light, said Franlin Raines, the CEO of Fannie 
Mae, was being "lynched". and defeated Raines and the GSE's.  
Raines, when questioned about the organization's lack of reserves, 
said the loans they held were "riskless"!  Raines received $90 Million 
in bonuses, paid because he "cooked the books" of the company to 
make it appear he deserved them.
ON PATRIOTISM
You could search long and hard before you found two more patriotic 
individuals than McCain and Pailin.  Simply put, they love this country.  
McCain volunteered to serve this nation in the Navy, and he suffered 
terrible torture for years for the US.  But he never broke, and he 
never gave his torturers the information they wanted.
Following 911, Obama took of his American flag lapel pin because it 
was unpopular with his base.  He disdainfully tokd ABC. "I don't need 
to wear that pin to show I'm patriotic."  He has refused to show 
respect for the flag, the Pledge, and the National Anthem.  And he 
had the American flag, which was already paine on his plane, 
painted over and replaced with his UN-like rainbow logo.
ON ASSOCIATIONS
The Democrats want us to believe that the peope one associates 
with should not matter when we choose our leaders.  But they do.  
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 22 not to associate with evil people, or 
we will 'learn their ways' (become like them).
John McCain and Saran Palin associate with ordinary people, American
patriots who work hard to serve the Lord and their fellow man.
Barrack Obama's associates, advisors and mentors are people that 
most Americans would not associate with for any amount of money. 
His "spiritual mentor" and pastor of twenty years, Jeremia Wright, is 
a hate-filled racist who taught Obama "Black Liberation Theology," a 
Marxist distortion of religion which teaches that all problems experienced 
by black people are the result of "white oppression."  Wright 
frequently curss whit people from his pulpit, and asked God to join 
him and "Damn America."  And Wright preaches that the US 
Government invented AIDS in a plot to whipe out black people!  
Obama distanced himself from his pastor when it became politically 
expedient, but he still hasn't answered the question of why he listened 
to this trash for 20 years ir he didn't believe it and support it.
Jeremia Wright also claims that Jesus Christ is a "black messiah" and 
says blacks are "the chosen people" who will only accept a god who 
assists their aim of destroying the "white enemy."
Obama's political advisor is the founder of the Communist Weather 
Underground, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, who on 911 (referring to 
his attempts to bomb the Capital and the Pentagon) told the New 
York Times, 'I don't regret setting bombs.'  Ayers launched Obama's 
political career from his own home, and put Obama in charge of 
distributing $50 Million to radical groups; yet Obama claims he barely 
knows him.
Obama's chief financial backer is his friend of 17 years, slumlord and 
convicted felon Tony Rezko, who donated $50,000 to Obama's 
campaign and arranged for millions more in donations.  Rezco 
somehow found money to donate to Obama during the time that he 
supposedly couldn't afford to heat 31 government subsidized 
apartments in a building he owned in State Senator Obama's district.  
Rezko also arranged an illegal transaction that allowed Obama to buy 
a home for $300,000 less than its cost.
_____________
I'm stopping here because it's getting deeper and deeper.  All of this 
information is documented on ConservativeTruth.org. My thanks 
again to Mr. Tom Barrett for the information.
Something to ponder.
Until Next Time America!

Appropriate for the Fiasco in Washington and Other Places
Mood:  mischievious

I just had to add this to the blog.  I think you will find it fitting!

 

Science Reveals Heaviest Element Ever Discovered

Research has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.0 These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction normally taking less than a second, to take from four days to four years to complete.  Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2-6 years. It does not decay, but undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy 20 neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes, not to mention multiple oxymorons.  This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. That hypothetical quantity might normally be called 'critical mass' but, in this unique case it is known as 'critical mess'.  When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium(Am), another just-discovered element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.  Author unknown 

Until Next TIme America!

The Wisdom of Chuck Norris
Mood:  celebratory

From a fellow actor, although he makes more at it than I do! 

 

 

Clandestine Conservatives in Hollywood

by  Chuck Norris

09/30/2008

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I was being interviewed recently at my Texas ranch by Geraldo Rivera, I thought back over my four decades in acting and how the pool of conservative "tough guys" seems to be drying up in Hollywood. Or are liberal waters just getting too hot for conservatives?

Then I recalled that The Washington Times recently reported, "A group of politically conservative and centrist Hollywood figures (up to 600 at once) organized by actor Gary Sinise and others has been meeting quietly in restaurants and private homes, forming a loose-knit network of entertainers who share common beliefs like supporting U.S. troops and traditional American values." But the article also noted that the secret is out on these clandestine meetings, as conservatives progressively are becoming more and more emboldened.

In a so-called age of tolerance, it amazes me just how intolerant some people are of those who stand for traditional values. For example, if I stand against California's memorializing of Harvey Milk Day or stand for California's Proposition 8, which would create an amendment to the California Constitution to safeguard heterosexual purity in marriage (which I do support and encourage Gov. Schwarzenegger and all Californians to do the same), I'm considered by many to be intolerant and a bigot. But if another actor takes just the opposite positions on those measures, he is considered to be compassionate and a liberator. Or when a liberal candidate, such as Hillary Clinton, runs for president, her candidacy is considered a fulfillment of civil rights and women's suffrage. But when a conservative candidate, such as Sarah Palin, runs for vice president, she's considered a radical right-wing extremist who could usurp the Capitol by toting rifles at her side.

 

This is America, and we should respect the fact that we will have strong, diverse opinions, and we must allow one another the freedom of speech to air such opines, not suppress them through peer pressure of any type like children. I have many acting friends and many friends in politics. I vehemently disagree with some of them, and that is my American right, as it is theirs. We must agree to disagree agreeably, without blogging about or denigrating someone's life and character before the nation and rest of the world. We must do better at keeping the focus on the fact that we are Americans first; we are not just conservatives and liberals.

If we are going to move our country forward, if it is going to survive and flourish for the next generation, then we have to drop the partisan rancor and pick up a unified patriotism -- not the patriotism of the past eight years or even the past 18 years, but the patriotism of unified spirit and passion shown by early Americans. What was important to them, what they fought for, was not the left or the right, but being American and being free. We've got to get back to that form of patriotism -- one that is based upon the Constitution, not congressional corruption, and elects people for their character, not their charisma. These are the type of citizens and leaders who don't go deeper into debt to bail out debt. These are the type of citizens and leaders who will say enough is enough. Like Ron Paul, who, after drawing similarities between the $700 billion bailout and the Great Depression, said, "The only thing we learn from history, I am afraid, is that we do not learn from history." (Getting to the heart of America's Founders' beliefs -- their patriotism and answers to our problems -- is also at the heart of why I wrote my latest New York Times best-seller, "Black Belt Patriotism.")

I admire those in the recent past who were able to represent a respectful conservatism in the liberal-leaning show business industry -- men such as Charlton Heston, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Ronald Reagan. And I'm grateful for others today who also have stood for conservative values -- incredible actors such as Jim Caviezel, Mel Gibson, Jon Voight and others. These are the type of men who will go against the grain of the Hollywood status quo. These are the type of men who get the fact that entertainment isn't about playing party politics. These are the type of men who demonstrate what my hero and stalwart conservative, John Wayne, once said: "Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway."

Despite Tinseltown's liberal leanings, there is a lot of good that conservatives are doing in the film industry -- not only for American entertainment but also for activism. That is why I recommend movies such as Sherwood Pictures' "Fireproof," David Zucker's "An American Carol" and the millennial social cry to expose and stop the global and even American slave trade, "Call + Response."

Underground or aboveground, we're all "created equal … endowed by (our) Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." On Main Street or Wall Street, in the movie business or the political arena, maybe there's much more overlap in life than we think; maybe we've got a lot more in common than we really know. We're Americans.

(Note From Chuck: My wife, Gena, and I send our heartfelt condolences to the family and close friends of Paul Newman. Newman was absolutely one of Hollywood's finest, not only as an actor but also as a gentleman and humanitarian. Another legendary actor, who inspired us all, has ridden off into the sunset, but he never will be forgotten.)

 

 

Until Next Time America!

Your Attention Please!
Mood:  on fire

Picked this up from an email I received!  If this continues, we'll have a big government monarchy real soon!  I thought we fought against this say...during the Revolutionary War! 

____________________________________________ 

Worthy of your time and attention regardless of your Party Affiliation

545 PEOPLE
By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits,  WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget.   The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.   The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress.   In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.   They have no legal authority.   They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing.   I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.   The politician has the power to accept or reject it.   No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault.   They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall.   No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.   The president can only propose a budget.   He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.   Who is the speaker of the House?   She is the leader of the majority party.   She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want.   If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility.   I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.   When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.

If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ, it's because they want them in IRAQ.

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.   Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like 'the economy,' 'inflation,' or 'politics' that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees
.

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.
