A Penny For Your Thoughts

Occasionally my mind will wander towards what we will be facing in the near future when we will be subjected to the sanctimonious and redistributionist whims of the Obama administration. We can only take guesses at this point as to how painful this assault upon the middle class will be due to the liberal allergy towards “topical discussion” during both the primary and general election campaigns. That being said, our best barometer of the future comes from a careful study of the past..

During the late 1700’s, the British delved in headfirst, wildly intoxicated over the idea of imposing taxes upon the colonies. Starting with the Stamp Act of 1765 and the Townshend Act of 1767, the British finally came out of the closet. They bit off just a little more than they could chew after passing what they at the time had to think was just the innocuous Tea Act of 1773, which was later repealed by the Taxation of Colonies Act of 1778. The Colonists had other ideas and they held a meeting or two and they put a plan in place. The rest is history..

John Hancock had a plan. (You remember Hancock, don’t you? He was the guy with the great big signature on the Declaration of Independence and he was probably the last patriot to occupy political office from the state of Massachusetts..) The protest meeting held on December 16, 1773 at the Old South Meeting House led later on that night to the Boston Tea Party. An estimated crowd of eight thousand protesters tossed, in 2008 dollars, nearly two million dollars worth of tea into the Boston Harbor. The tax the colonists were protesting was one penny. The Colonists took “a penny for your thoughts” and made it a battle cry..

This action directly led to the American Revolution and the passing of the Taxation of Colonies Act in 1778, which said that Parliament would no longer impose any duty, tax or assessment for the raising of revenue in the colonies.

Lets move to 1930 where the “Salt Satyagraha” or the “Salt March” took place in India.

On December 31, 1929 the Indian National Congress raised its flag and on January 26, 1930 they issued their Declaration of Independence which they called “Purna Swaraj”. In it, the Indians “included the readiness to withhold taxes”. From the document, we read that “the Indian people have the right to enjoy the fruits of their toil and have the necessities of life. If any government deprives a people of these rights and oppresses them the people have a further right to alter it. The British government in India has not only deprived the Indian people of their freedom, but has based itself on the exploitation of the masses and has ruined India economically, politically, culturally and spiritually.”

The 1882 Salt Act handed the British a “monopoly on the collection and manufacture of salt, limiting its handling to government salt depots and levying a salt tax.” Salt was used by nearly everyone in India and the tax represented “eight percent of the British Raj tax revenue” and it “hurt the poorest Indians the most.”

In a frightening bit of foreshadowing as relates to the impending Obama caliphate, Gandhi in a forward he wrote during this time for a book of speeches by Gokhale said, “If the means employed are impure, the change will not be in the direction of progress but very likely in the opposite. Only a change brought about in our political condition by pure means can lead to real progress..”

Prior to the Salt March, Gandhi released statements to his disciples. In one such missive he said, “We are entering upon a life and death struggle, a holy war; we are performing an all-embracing sacrifice in which we wish to offer ourselves as oblation.” 60,000 people gathered to hear Gandhi’s words before the March. When they reached Dandi, more than 50,000 Indians had assembled there. Gandhi said, “I want world sympathy in this battle of Right against Might.” With that, Gandhi could see clearly into the future and the struggles that we shall soon face.

Shortly thereafter, the Indian people began to participate in mass civil disobedience. British textiles and goods were actively boycotted. A series of unpopular forest laws were blatantly defied. Peasants refused to pay taxes.. “50,000 member armies of non-violent activists called Khudai Khidmatgar” were trained. British troops opened fire at a gathering of Khidmatgar, killing an estimated two hundred and fifty unarmed protesters.

In May of 1930, Gandhi planned to “raid” (march on) the Dharasana Salt Works plant. Thirty two “heavily armed constables” took Gandhi into custody based upon a vague and little used law from the early 1820’s that forbid “engaging in unlawful activities”..

The march went on without Gandhi whereupon British soldiers mercilessly clubbed the marchers as the Khidmatgar continued without resorting to violent resistance..

A United Press corespondent named Webb Miller reported on the march. The British tried to censor Millers’ report but it made its way into over one thousand newspapers around the world. The United States Senate even had Miller’s report entered into the official record.

Time magazine named Gandhi its “Man of the Year” in 1930. Time magazine was “comparing Gandhi’s march to the sea to defy Britain’s Salt Tax as some New Englanders once defied a British tea tax”..

Ironically, Gandhi’s “Salt Satyagraha” “failed to attract Muslim support-many Muslims boycotted the Satyagraha”..

Gandhi’s march was also fascinating to American civil rights marcher Martin Luther King Jr. King later said, “As I delved deeper into the philosophy of Gandhi, my skepticism concerning the power of love gradually diminished and I came to see for the first time its potency in the area of social reform”.

In both historical cases, we need to replace the words “British” or “British government” with “Obama” or “Obama administration”. In a number of cases, replace the word “India” with “America”, “Indian” with “American”..

The Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution were started over a tax of one penny. The Salt March materialized over the miniscule tax placed upon salt..

With an Obama administration chafing and salivating over the dreams of new taxes in the trillions of dollars, just how docile have we become? Just how far removed are we from the original Colonists and the Khudai Khidmatgar of Gandhi’s India?

  1. Larry,

    AWESOME article!!! LOL @ John Hancock was probably the last patriot to occupy political office from the state of Massachusetts!!!! I’m sure JR agrees!!!

  2. Sister Amy,

    Thanks for your kind words and your efforts on belf of the family.

    On this special day as well, thanks to you, your husband and your Dad for all that they have done for this nation.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  3. You bet I agree
    Look at the past election . Our state
    legislature has 5 republicans in a senate of 40 and the house of reps
    has 16 out 160

    Talk about lob sided

    I think we are the bluest of all the states.Now liveshot KERRY will be moving into some hell hole in washington and we have at least 8
    pols looking for his job Not a REPUBLICAN in the lot

    Also expect our Govenor to move to DC

  5. Excellent.
    Let the Salt Marches begin.
    Let Boston Tea Party’s wage all over the land.

    Let’s send a message to Washington BEFORE Obama even takes office.
    Feb 6, 2009 will be Ronald Reagan’s 98th birthday. Let’s prepare for the celebration.
    That will take the minds off the inauguration (or as I call it, the “inhale-uration” – when the media inhales the kool-aid) and immediate set the tone for the coming year.
    Rather than thinking about Obama’s event, let’s get everyone talking about the Feb 6 event.
    Then on Feb 6, we celebrate Ronald Reagan Day (happens to be on a Friday too), and that should end the “honeymoon” with Obama.

    Start planning for it now, but on Monday 2/6/09 start setting out “decorations” in preparation for that Friday’s celebration.
    Let’s celebrate the greatest American to live in our lifetime.

    As luck would have it, Reagan’s 100th birthday will be on 2/6/2011 – just about the time the potential candidates start feeling out the waters for the 2012 elections.
    Let’s REALLY get prepared for that one!

    the fight is upon us
    STITCH!
    Patriot

  6. JR,

    KWame Kilpatrick will probably get some swanky Cabinet position in the Obama Administration. Patronage and cronyism will be epidemic and rampant in Chairman O’s regime.

  7. Stitch, we should start talking about Reagan’s 98th Birthday Bash well before January 20. Let’s try to drown out all of the hoopla over BHO’s “big day”. By the grace of God, the Supreme Court finds BHO’s candidacy and subsequent election illegal and then John McCain and Sarah Palin can take their rightful places as President and Vice President. Then, we will have two reasons to celebrate.

  8. After reading a post on then internet forum that I frequent, I looked up the history of the price of oil on the New York Stock Exchange. The numbers there reveal that, in keeping with ancient Hebrew idiom, it could be argued that the oil price spike had a base of $70, a height of $70, and duration of 70 weeks. This should lead, at least Christians, to wonder, “Who was really behind it, and why?”

  9. Updated YouTube Impact:

    Ronald Reagan: The American Sound: 24

    Unfairness Doctrine: 152

    American Infidel: 86

    Choices: 66

    Leaders On Holiday: 164

    John McCain, Patriot: 162

  10. Bill,

    God told DP of Prophet.tv that oil would spike and then fall so long as DP continued to pray. If DP and his team had ceased praying, oil would have spiked even higher. God is in control.

  11. Family,

    I had to delete American Infidel and Leaders on Holiday off of You Tube and the other sites due to unintended consequences. If you want me to make a movie, please refrain from using swastikas and Hitler references, as those can raise red flags with the people who can help or hurt my hubby’s career. Let’s stick to the issues because that’s what grabs people’s attention. We can still call a spade a spade and show the consequences of Socialism/Fascism, but we must do it in such a way that my hubby could get in trouble for it if I have my name on it. I don’t believe in doing anything completely anonymously. I have been DirntFiend for a long time, but I will reveal my name when asked to.

  12. CORRECTION:

    “we must do it in such a way that my hubby could get in trouble for it if I have my name on it”

    should read

    “we must NOT do it in such a way that my hubby could get in trouble for it if I have my name on it”

  13. AMY
    The detailed outline from triviaman
    indicates thet the VP spot is seperate from the POTUS. If we eliminate
    the big O we are still stuck with BIDEN So we use him for funerals only

  14. Great Article, Larry… I’ve been thinking along these lines my self lately.

    Isn’t this situation exactly the reason for the first and second amendments to the consitution? A free people have the inherent right to free speech. Bby the way, free speech does NOT mean it’s OK to stand up and lie, it just means you can speak the truth no matter who doesn’t want to hear it. And a free people have the right to bear arms in order to protect themselves from tyrants.

    I’ve been hearing rumblings about revolutions: “The South will rise again” and other such musings… maybe this is what is needed to bring the rest of the countryto the point of facing reality. It does concern me a bit that the State has my CWP data, and it is a fine way for them to find me when the day comes that they decide I can no longer be trusted with a weapon.

    Stitch: It is Mrs. T. actually. Both my husband and I have served our country, as you and many of the others here have. I was in the Navy for 8 years, and he is a retired Air Force cop.

    My thanks and cudos to you all here, you help me keep my sanity, as I am not allowed to have these discussions at work, except with a select few, and in private. It is ‘contrary to a smooth-running workplace’ since a minor incident that occurred the day after the election.

  15. JR,

    If John McCain does ultimately get the Presidency, then he will have to keep Plugs under lock and key!!!

  16. just listened to Glenn Beck on some morning show saying how we should “unite behind Obama regardless of our beliefs because if he fails, the country fails”.
    Bull!
    After watching the Democrats fabricate an oil crisis, and then a mortgage crisis, just so they could win an election!
    The Democrats have no issues with throwing the American people under the bus if it helps their cause.
    I will NEVER give in.
    Socialism does NOT work, no matter WHO is running it.
    I will NEVER support this character. He is a liar. He is a thief. And he is a coward.
    We have seen 12 months worth of lies and now we will see 48 more.
    When someone promises they will not take something, but then as soon as you look away they take it anyway, I call that person a thief.
    Watch your paychecks in the coming months. While no one is watching, your federal income taxes WILL go up. I call that stealing, and the person that does it a THIEF.
    Obama has yet to engage the American people one on one. He hides behind his teleprompter of flowery hand-picked words. Any time he ventures away from this, he puts his foot in his mouth, gets his ass chewed, and so he runs back and hides behind his teleprompter. I call this cowardice.

    Amy – thanks for your work on the videos. If you want to remove your name(s) from the credits and re-mix them, please do and send them to me. I will re-post them under my name on YouTube.

    3 things to look for this coming year (in line with the new Socialist agenda):
    1) nationalizing the banks (or at least lenders)
    2) nationalizing the oil industry
    3) nationlizing the auto industry

    Let’s see, Socialism combined with Nationalizations…..hmmmm….I think in the 1930’s the Germans called that National Socialism….which they simply abbreviated NAZI- had a catchy ring to it.

    One thing I forgot to include in “Leaders on Holiday” was a slide comparing Adolf’s “youth program” with Barack’s “youth program”. I think the only difference will be the “brown shirts”, but of course they will have a “team” shirt- probably with a big O-emblem on the back.

    After reading some of BHO’s manifesto I see where the 50% who don’t pay taxes will be getting our money anyway. Seems this guy wants to give $4000 in “tax credits” to people who “volunteer” 100 hours of community service.
    Nice, $40 an hour for what?
    And, who is going to “validate” their “time cards” to insure that they put in these 100 hours. And what will they do for this $4000? Walking around the streets in their O-shirts handing out O-literature most likely.

    Well, as a true conservative, I have to go to work now.

    the fight is upon us
    STITCH!

  17. Another great article Larry.

    But are you saying that Ted Kennedy and Barney Frank are not Patriots? What about Mitt Romney?

    The fact that salt is bad for you make it easier to give up. Tea? Will it be just regular tea or one of those Celestial Seasoning teas with names like Earl Grey? Mandarin Orange Spice? Lemon Zinger? Mint Magic? Or decaf tea for all those high strung individuals and nervous Nelly’s? We could throw various alcoholic beverages into Boston Harbor? At least we’ll know exactly where Teddy Kennedy will be. The fact that the Kennedy Dynasty earns money on any Scotch or Irish whiskey that’s imported outside and inside the US, could send a great message to those in Washington. It also may provide an understanding as to why citizens of Massachusetts vote the way they do. Barney Frank? Are you drunk or do you just lack the mental capacity to understand what incompetence looks like? The last competent candidate that understood the needs of the public, not just Massachusetts residents was John Adams. Who even back then believed we shouldn’t drink your booze any longer, drink it yourself. Alcohol is the route of all evil and learned that lesson from his son, Charles I believe who did partake in these nectars that eventually killed him. Just a thought.

    While watching The O’Reilly Factor last night they said that the female official who used her power to look into Joe the Plumbers background was suspended with pay for the abuse of power. She also used her position to locate Obama donors, eventually passing those names onto the campaign. I hope that Joe sues the state and her for invasion of privacy. Megyn Kelly believes he has a case but believes nothing will happen to her.

    It’s amazing to what lengths they are willing to go to in order to get there way, by breaking the laws of the state or federal governments. They all are despicable human beings, but of course the Democratic Governor or the Ohio State Senate won’t pass out any real punishment. They will restate her maybe move her to another office that has less of a public profile so she can continue to abuse what little power she has left. As the democratic soap opera continues, these are the Days of Our Hives or As the Stomach Churns. It never ceases to amaze me to what lengths the Democratic Party will go too.

    Amy, your message is loud and clear, which was why I intentionally avoided using those images in The Unfairness Doctrine. It generally send a flag up by those who monitoring our safety. How do they feel about Kim Jong-il?

  18. Stitch,

    I will show Obama the same respect that the democrats have shown President Bush. I’ll undermine his capacity to “rule” instead of “govern”; criticize all his actions, friends, and family. Mock his children publicly. Pray and hope something bad happens so I can continue to undermine and illustrate all the errors that will prove my point to the American public that he is dangerous and brain dead. Put together books and movies that illustrate his incompetence to lead. Bad mouth him every day and hope to get news media’s attention so I can go global. Point out the negatives and errors of his policies and legislation. Appear on Letterman and read his top ten lists on government ineptitude and corruption. Create new conspiracy theories that the government is responsible for 9/11 and not provide any backup or documentations that support my claims but demand that I’m allow to say them because of my first amendment rights. Mock his accent and speech, and then claim it proves that he is an idiot, because it’s nuclear. Make Obama bashing an Olympic sport, where I’ll receive the Gold metal for our Country. What’s fair is fair for all, not just liberals. And, of course, have Congress demand he resigns because we don’t like him.

  19. Supposedly BHO plans to “rule” by Executive Order (at least according to his campaign). So much for any semblance of checks and balances (not that there will be any with Democrats in charge). I hope that his true colours emerge before it is too late. Whoever gets in office in 2012 needs to rescind EVERY one of BHO’s orders.

  20. Eileen,

    I will help you put together your books and movies.

  21. The Latest Obama Crimes From Moonbattery:

    Obama to “Really Take Power and Begin to Rule”

    Mere presidents govern. The Moonbat Messiah will rule.

    Obamunist Valeria Jarrett, co-chair of The One’s transition team, on Meet the Depressed:

    “It’s important that President-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one.”

    Jarrett’s choice of words is ominous, given that with Congress and the media completely behind him, there is no one in a position to remind the megalomaniacal Chairman O and his acolytes that he wasn’t elected dictator.

    Obama Camp Has Been in Constant Contact With Hamas

    With the election over, look for a steady stream of unseemly revelations to quietly bubble to the surface of the miasmal swamp known as the Obama campaign — like this one:

    “Hamas held a meeting in the Gaza Strip several months ago with aides to President-elect Barack Obama, but the terror group was asked to keep the contacts secret until after last week’s elections, according to a senior Hamas official.
    Ahmed Yousef, Hamas’ chief political adviser in Gaza, told the leading Al-Hayat Arabic-language newspaper Hamas has maintained regular communication with Obama aides that even continued during the past week.”

    Hamas endorsed Obama, and phone banks in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip canvassed American voters on his behalf.

    “Hamas is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, rocket attacks, shootings and cross-border raids. Its official charter calls for the murder of Jews and destruction of Israel. Just today [Tuesday], Hamas members took responsibility for launching dozens of rockets from Gaza aimed at Jewish civilian population centers.”

    Nonetheless, 78% of Jewish voters took Hamas’s advice and voted for The One. Such is the self-hating madness of moonbattery.

    Winston Smith Goes to Work for Obama Camp

    In the prescient 1984, Winston Smith’s job was to rewrite history to fit current government policy, tossing anything that the State wanted forgotten down the memory hole. In the Internet age, this task is all too easy, as Obama’s henchmen have proven by replacing the ominous “agenda” pages from their Change.gov site with vague mush.

    Agenda items had included issues like gun control, a drastic unemployment-inducing hike in the minimum wage, and throwing a monkey wrench into NAFTA. As LT Nixon asks,

    “Remember when millions of Americans who work for a living had to unite under the NRA lobby to prevent gun control weenies from labeling them a bunch of brain-dead, violent hicks? Remember the whole “living wage” debate in the mid-90s designed to cripple small businesses? Remember the anti-free trade movement which culminated in the destruction of downtown Seattle circa 1999?”

    This could be an encouraging sign that Obama really did magically change from a radical to a moderate during the last few months of his campaign. But CNET warns:

    “The ephemeral nature of Web publishing does raise some serious issues: if a president-elect circulates a physical press release promising to do something, and then changes his mind, there’s a paper trail. That doesn’t exist when files are added to a Web site and then quietly removed over a weekend.”

    You have to wonder what other promises might vanish into the Internet ether — and why Obama should stop with promises. Instead of throwing his many unseemly associates under the bus, a new cabinet-level Department of Official Reality might erase them from history, Soviet style. Given their record of compliance with communist China, I’m sure Google and Yahoo would be glad to offer technical expertise.

    Rahm Emanuel Proposes Compulsory Government Service

    Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel confirms the authoritarian outlook of the next administration. Here he is in The Plan: Big Ideas for America, proposing compulsory government service, via The Examiner:

    “It’s time for a real Patriot Act that brings out the patriot in all of us. We propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan, all Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five will be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil defense preparation and community service.”

    Emanuel and his coauthor Bruce Reed scoff that “[s]ome Republicans will squeal about individual freedom.”

    No doubt this concept will resonate with the Moonbat Messiah, and provide an excellent opportunity to drive home the political indoctrination young people have spent their lives soaking up at school.

    Obama’s Friends Farrakhan, Wright, Ayers Reemerge

    Look who’s crawling back out from under their rocks:

    “For nine months, I kept quiet,” Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said today at Mosque Maryam in Chicago, “because I saw that the good words that I spoke about this beautiful young man” — President-elect Obama — “at our Saviours’ Day convention and the way they were misused. I decided it would be better for me to just be quiet rather than be drawn into the controversy that was swirling around his pastor, Father Pfleger, and others.”

    “I feel freer today to say the things that are in my heart,” said the controversial religious leader.

    Maybe Calypso Louie is angling for a role in Chairman O’s version of faith-based initiatives. If so, he won’t be alone:

    Last week, Obama’s former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright emerged to speak at Kingdom Life Christian Church sponsored by the Theological Education Institute of Hartford.
    Reverend Wrong, Obama’s moral compass for 20 years, took the opportunity to complain about the dissemination of videos showing him screaming about how much he hates America and white people.

    Then there is unrepentant communist terrorist Bill Ayers, who groomed Obama for political office like a Manchurian candidate, even launching Chairman Zero’s career from his home. Ayers gave an interview to his fellow travelers at the New Yorker, whining that he is a victim of “Swift-boating,” who has been “made into a cartoon character.” This from a guy who in the September 11, 2001 edition of the New York Times boasted of his terrorist activities, regretting only that he “didn’t do enough.”

    With the election of an unqualified socialist who ran on his skin color and media hype, the mainstreaming of ultra-radicalism has begun. The good news is that liberal establishment moonbats have been pushing us so far, so fast that the Obamification of America stands a good chance of coming back in their face like a slingshot aimed the wrong way.

  22. Very interesting, Larry.

    As I read your article I remembered a quote from the past, “Taxation without representation is bad, but taxation with representation ain’t so hot either.”

  23. Billsey, I do find that figure 70 interesting. The Biblical numeric meaning of 70 is the captivity and return of Israel.

  24. Ken,

    Think about it: You’ve got 3 (repetitions of 70);
    you’ve got 7 (factor of 70);
    and you’ve got 10 (also a factor of 70).

    Biblical values would be all over the thing, but as God shouts at the people, how does Revelation say the people will react?

  25. This is precisely why Obama wants to start his own “security force” which will be as strong and well armed as our military (probably better equipped under Obama).

    The time for civil disobedience has long passed and is useless in today’s world. Obama’s militia men will gun us down as the Khudai did the Indians in India.

    Obama will disarm us if we let him, fearing he will ultimately lose a civil war in this country.

    Everyone I know is hopping mad and fed up with the liberal establishment. We will take to the streets when the time is right and reclaim this once great nation for ourselves and those who fight to maintain our freedoms.

    We will not be fighting against tax levies on tea or salt but our very existence.

    If you do not own a gun, buy one and stock up on the ammo before Obama outlaws gun ownership too.

  26. If I have understood correctly, people the world over will abhor and revile Jews and Israel as a nation. This leads to the next prophesy in line which is the Valley of Dry Bones where they are gathered. The world that gathers them there believes they will rid the world of them. This is not for their destruction as far as God is concerned, Who is the absolute and final authority in all matters. Here in this Valley of Dry Bones they are cleansed of the rebellious from among them, and as they turn back to God they become the army of Ezekiel 37 and are turned back to the Mosaic Covenant of ceremonial as well as civil law. At that point, they will return back to the land and God will give it to them, not the UN give it to them as in 1948. This is when the Dome of the Rock Mosque will be destroyed and they will build the Third Temple. The Covenant with Death and agreement with Hell people, which includes a sizable number who claim to be Jews, are trying to get WWIII going behind which they can exterminate the Jews in this scenario. The Church is thinking it will be raptured before all this. I disagree. While the world as Babylon is the rod of God’s punishment on Israel, the Church is created by God as one of its purposes to be the comforter to Israel. I believe we may be here until through the time of the two witnesses, but nobody knows for sure.

    The number 7 is perfection: which does not mean “without flaw” as we now think of it, but rather, as mature. Three (3) 70’s adds to 210 which is the fullness of sin, the number twenty-one (21) meaning The Exceeding Sinfullness of Sin- complete blasphemey against all Seven of the Seven Spirits of God. What has to be kept in mind is that the forces of darkness of this world are always trying to get a jump on what God has determined. They use Babylonian numerics while Bible numerics are Hebrew. It sure is an interesting development, these 70’s in that order!

  27. Joe
    got the guns, plenty of power too- high and dry.
    lock & load.

    Buy gold too.
    With the stocks in the tank, and Pelosi drooling over taking over our 401k investments, they can’t touch our gold.
    If you buy gold, its yours. Its off the books.
    Hide it.
    The gubment won’t know you have it, and therefore cannot tax it or confiscate it.

    Just tell me where you hide it…. 😉

    the fight is upon us
    STITCH!
    Patriot

  28. Ken, Bill,

    Think about this, 77 is 7 more than 70, and 63 is 7 less, but 63 is a six and a three, and the 6 is one less than a 7, but the three is 4 less. And if you add the 1 and 4 you get 5 which is only 2 less than 7. However, both 2 and 7 are a prime numbers so that explains all the subprime lending issues we are facing today.

    stop it…..STOP IT!

    the Answer Grape

  29. KEN,

    Upon taxation with or without representation; did you, or anyone else for that matter, know that $140 billion was taken out of the $700 billion bailout money for sources unknown? It was agreed upon by both sides of the fence in Congress, our esteemed leaders, that this should be kept from the public, that they do this secretly to “keep from having a public outcry.”

    The “money” being tax and future tax monies is beyond a doubt, literally, the most perfect example of taxation with and without representation.

    WHO IN THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE FOR?!?!!!

  30. Billsey, sorry, I hit the submit button too quick.

    I just wanted to point out that oil was made to be the standard against which the dollar was measured as it had been before by gold. Henry A. Kissinger, the coordinator between USA and Black Nobility brought this about and made it law entangling us with the world economy based on oil back in the 1970’s. Just after that the Anwar oil deposits were discovered and Kissinger and Nixon made knowledge of Anwar classified top secret and forbid drilling there. Later, the Black Nobility by its Committee of 300 purchased oil drilling rights through its USA front organization, Aspen Institute. Recent high gas prices may have to do with getting the price up in USA before they begin drilling. They don’t miss a trick.

  31. Windrider,

    No, I did not know 140 billion was taken out of the 700 billion. But in fact, though the media is talking about 700 billion, I believe the final figure voted on was 800 billion. That 140 billion is either stolen or it is being used to hurt us, maybe even to fund the new national domestic army= Hitlerisk brownshirt thugs. Store much food and arms. We don’t have to make it easy for them.

  32. AnswerGrape,

    Gotcha. A toast to you, “Jesus’ love is sweeter than wine.”

  33. Larry… “With an Obama administration chafing and salivating over the dreams of new taxes in the trillions of dollars, just how docile have we become? Just how far removed are we from the original Colonists and the Khudai Khidmatgar of Gandhi’s India?”

    I believe this to be the most important question you have ever posed.

  34. Larry, Thank you this does hit close to home considering I lived in Massachusetts and was probably one of the last few students to get through school learning the basics before the mass indoctrinations started.

    @Amy D. I prefer to use the term Obama-nation of America instead of the Obamification, as it sound closer to the abomination that his administration will be.

  36. Redbone,

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I had hoped that the “dryness” of the article, with so many historical references, would still keep it “readable” but would also make an impact..

    I am glad that it did so with you.

    Larry

  37. John,

    The Colonists and the Founding Fathers are now elegible for the “endangered species” list..

    Teach your children the real American history, not the “feel good fiction” ladled out in the public schools..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  38. Larry, this article is one of the finest you have ever written.

  39. Larry…a thought provoking and well researched article.”That being said, our best barometer of the future comes from a careful study of the past..” Truer words were never spoken. Had any of the electorate cared to study the past of BHO, or if any of the media cared to study the qualifications of BHO to be president,with 1/2 the fervor they used on Sarah Palin, the outcome of this election would have been far different. Frankly it is just as Geraldine Ferraro pointed out during the primaries, that had BHO been white he would have been dismissed out of hand to even run in the primaries,let alone be nominated due to lack of experience and absolutely no track record in public office. I don’t know if it is gotten to the point of needing peaceful civil disobedience in order to highlight the inherent injustice of welfare statism/democratic socialism. It does point out the main problem with the current situation with the political class and more so the electorate. The education system in this country has been hijacked from K-12 all the way through Master degrees by progressive ideologies; specifically in the humanities . Politics,history and philosophy have been corrupted to the core so bad that most of the citizenry have no idea what the philosophical difference between the US Constitution and a witchdoctors rants from a tribe of headhunters is. Proper education and an ability to discern truth from lies, to think logically, and an ability to act independently are what is needed immediately. Otherwise I agree that public displays of civil disobedience will be needed. Hopefully it will not degenerate in violent confrontation. Thats the main point I try to instill in every person I talk with. Every time you give the government more authority over your lives, you also surrender your rights, because government is the only agency in society with the legal authority to use force to make you comply. Everyone seems to forget…the Germans ELECTED Hitler and the Nazi Party into power. So the idea that it can’t happen here is simply whistling in the dark.

    “With an Obama administration chafing and salivating over the dreams of new taxes in the trillions of dollars, just how docile have we become? Just how far removed are we from the original Colonists and the Khudai Khidmatgar of Gandhi’s India?”

    To answer your question, sadly, we are very far removed from our original colonists. Of course I am exempting everyone in NLTZ, but by and large, the citizens of our country have become nothing more than a nation of sheeple. I really don’t know what is the matter with people, but they seem to be willing to be led to the slaughter, so to speak. How else do you explain this election?

    I’m not just talking about Obama, but also rewarding demorats with additional seats in the House & Senate. Too many sheeple have their hands out expecting free goodies from their neighbors, who actually work for a living.

    I would dearly love to be wrong, but I do not see any uprising in our future, and it pains me to say that.

  41. Great article Larry…and thought provoking. I’m in this for the long haul…just let me know how I can serve.

  42. Ken,

    You are very kind.

    Thanks for all of your contributions to NLTZ.

  47. Luke, Disgusted

    NoLeftTurnz, AWESOME.
    I feel it is too soon to turn to violence. (BUT be Prespared!) We must not let this erosion of our rights and Our Constitution go un-answered! We must use the only viable weapon left at the moment, People Power.

    Remember “We the People…”

    Having said that, stock up on canned food, water, batteries and all the items needed to live. Keep some cash and trade goods well hidden & keep those Firearms clean and ammo handy.

    The Founding Fathers said we need revolutions regularly to avoid what is happening now, a total corruption of the Political AND Judical processes. Not just the Democrats but the Republicans have lost their way. They NO LONGER represent the will of THE PEOPLE.

    God Bless you all.

  48. I’m thinking the intent of this article is to point out how little it takes until people reach that “final straw”.
    Case in point is the mere penny tax that England imposed on tea.
    THAT, was the final straw.
    If we think about what life was like here back in the 1740’s, 50’s, 60’s, and finally into the 1770’s, one could imagine how rough life was then.
    From Boston you could ride west and by sundown reach the end of known civilization in this hemisphere.
    From that point to the Pacific Ocean was wilderness.
    Very few luxuries. Very little in the way of real comfort.
    And these were colonists, not Americans. They were subjects of England.
    The one thing these people probably looked forward to was that cup of tea.
    Think about the soldiers in World War II and how they savored a simple cup of coffee.
    Finally, that one cent, one lousy penny, was the final straw.
    Regardless of the fact that they would have to go without their precious tea, they decided they would rather toss $2 million worth into the bay than allow this injustice to continue.
    They had had enough.
    We too will probably need to make similar decisions in the coming months.
    As the Obama-nation takes office and begins the process of dismantling 200 years worth of toil and tears by replacing each sector of our society with his socialistic agenda, we too will need to make a decision. Have we had enough?
    At what point do we stage our own “Boston Tea Party”?
    At what point do we make the sacrifice that those Bostonians did more than 225 years ago?
    Are we willing to toss something dear to us overboard?
    Socialism does not work.
    Are you even going to try to make it work? For who? Obama?
    I have no interests in helping him MAKE socialism work.
    Remember those Jimmy Carter days? Double-digit unemployment, double-digit interest rates, and double-digit inflation?
    Oh yeah, bring it on.
    I’m ready to toss whatever I have to overboard.

    the fight is upon us

  49. Anyone from Georgia?
    We’re trying to steal several thousand ballots for the upcoming run-off election.
    We want to make sure we have plenty of extras so when the Demonrats start their endless series of “recounts” we will have plenty available that can “discovered” in heavily conservative precincts.

  50. Typo alert:
    Paragraph eight – Gandhi would have written a “foreword”, not a “forward”.
    Spellcheckers are great, aren’t they?

    Also… @Stitch
    The laws were brought in by the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (as it is now), not England. Trust me, it makes a bit of difference to us Brits. Four countries, one nation.

  52. Ken,

    I believe it is far simpler (from Rev. 16:9): “…they cursed the name of God…” and “…they refused to repent and glorify Him.”

  53. Here is a penny’s worth of my thoughts. I wish I only occasionally thought about what is in store for us in the months ahead.
    I have voted for many President’s in my 59 years…not all have won….but none have terrified me like this one. Being a reasonable person I always managed to roll with the punches….sat out til the next dance. I’m not sure I can do that this time. I’m not sure any of us can. We still are the “silent majority”…the worker bees who build the hive….protect the queen, “our country” from assault on our most basic freedom to live another day without interference. These words don’t flow freely and the internal struggle is great.
    More later….this worker bee must get ready for work…while I still have a j.o.b. a/k/a “just above broke.”

  54. Correction….j.o.b. a/k/a “just over broke.”

  55. Larry,

    Another excellent article… as can always be looked forward to, and expected from you.

    Amazing the power of a simple penny isn’t it? The un-obtrusive copper coin helped start the beginnings of a nation. A nation that would grow into the greatest nation on earth.

    Yet imagine how many single pennys it takes to equal $700 billion dollars. Pennys in our taxes going to “monarchs” who found themselves inept through their own greediness at conducting their financial affairs. Greediness, often the reason in the downfall of empires

    Unlike the colonists, today we have “representatives” in Washington who are supposed to be looking out for their constituents best interests. Thus denying us the opportunity to go to a harbor and throw burlap bag bundled bank, savings and loan presidents and wall street executives in. I’d for one would like to add a little weight, say a few pounds of pennies to their pockets, to see whether they bob or sink, just for giggles. That is my veiw of a perfect “trickle down” and “spread the wealth” ideaology working together.

    However our cerebral “leaders,” as everyone knows, did not quite see it that way and thought giving away the “commoners” money would be a good idea. I mean afterall, their backs are strong and their children’s backs will pick up on what is still owed, right?

    The American people of today can in no way when it comes to taxes be compared to the colonists simply because we are a totally different people. The people of today are so spoiled if they had to do 1/10 of the work the colonists did in a single day just for survival, the cardiac units at hospitals would be overrun.

    As Stitch had asked, “Remember those Jimmy Carter days?”, yes, I remember them and still nothing other than the usual moaning, groaning and whining was done. No one headed for any “harbor” of action, Americans, unlike the colonists, again just stood there and payed more for their “tea.”

    I believe the majority of Americans will blindly fall in line, lock step and dutifully pay their taxes no matter how extreme they may get. An example of this could be seen in the recent explosion of gas prices. As the fuel prices went up there was some public outcry but the prices did continue to go up and the public kept on buying. The public would have kept on buying no matter how high the prices were. There was no action by any private citizens group or orginizations to apply pressure on Washington, (the modern day Boston Harbor) and worst of all there was no action by the government itself. The oil prices didn’t fall because of the actions of anyone entity, they fell because of the world economy crisis. But this only temorary and the oil prices will soon rise again to prices higher than we had seen before. How much do we pay for our “black tea” before we say… demand “no more”?

    I think before the American people of today can become united on one front, actually acting together as AMERICANS rather than prejudiced, self interested groups, is when our individual freedoms, as guaranteed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, are threatened. The Constitution, who the president elect has said he wants to “free us from some of the constraints in it as placed there by the Founding Fathers.”
    Knowing what we already know about Obama, this statement from him bothers me deeply. I don’t want this socialist son of a bitch and a left wing Congress messing with the Constitution that has served this country well for over two hundred years. The very backbone of this country that, had it not been for politicians like Obama and liberal judges who’ve slimed away at the “constraints” of the Constitution, this nation would have far less the societal ills than it does today.

    Taxation is a slow crippling of a nation, a loss in world recognition and status and eventual death of that nation. Altering the Constitution or the Bill of Rights is the instant death of United States of America and is a harbinger for it’s citizens in meeting a like fate.

  56. On the lighter side, here’s some humour sent to me from my friend Lora:

    QUESTIONS THAT HAUNT ME!

    ~ If you have sex with a prostitute against her will, is it considered rape or shoplifting?

    ~ Can you cry under water?

    ~ How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

    ~ Why do you have to ‘put your two cents in’… but it’s only a ‘penny for your thoughts’? Where’s that extra penny going to?

    ~ Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

    ~ Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

    ~ What disease did cured ham actually have?

    ~ How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

    ~ Why is it that people say they ‘slept like a baby’ when babies wake up like every two hours?

    ~ If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

    ~ Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?

    ~ Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

    ~ Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They’re going to see you naked anyway.

    ~ Why is ‘bra’ singular and ‘panties’ plural?

    ~ Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

    ~ If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a stupid song about him?

    ~~ Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

    ~ If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?

    ~ Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours?
    They’re both dogs!

    ~ If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn’t he just buy dinner?

    ~ If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

    ~ If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

    ~ Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

    ~ Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

    ~ Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?

    ~ Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

  57. Billsey,

    By the blood and death of Jesus, as Christian believers, we are saved from the wrath of God. Looking at this chapter Revelation 16 anew I can only thank God for His love to us by pouring out His wrath on Jesus on the cross, He becoming sin, taking my place and your place, along with all others who are genuine believers, so that I nor any other will have to suffer this wrath of Revelation 16 and 17 and 18 and 20:15. You are right. It does boil down for the whole human race to that one matter of blasphemy with the refusal to repent and glorify Him.

  58. Its cold here on Noleftturnz today. Almost see my breath.
    Larry, your article is superlative as usual and the questions loom on everyone in this place of solace. We need to start this fire before sleep sets in. Any body got a match?

  59. Amy D
    Thanks for the lighter side.

  60. Dono, perhaps this will provide a little spark…

    An Obituary Printed In The London Times:

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
    Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; life isn’t always fair; and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student, but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses, and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home, and the burglar could sue you for assault.

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled some in her lap and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

    Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I’m A Victim

    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

    This was written in England, but if we don’t get off our collective Ass and get moving, this WILL be our obituary, as well!

    NEVER AGAIN!!!

  61. T,

    I took the liberty of cutting and pasting your post and sending it to my family and friends.

    It has been brought to my attention that you have said what were deemed as innappropriate statements as relates to the Jews. The e-mailer did not state as to where these statemants were made and I do not have the time to back check each and every article’s comments.

    I advised him or her to come to the comments and approach you directly. I hope that they do.

    All that I ask is that you and anyone making comments please make them germane to the social or political topic discussed in the article.

    I don’t ask for much.

    Also, I should have offered in my post above regarding the obama file website that if anyone would like a zipped up version of the folder containing all the individual pages, I’d be happy to send them to you via email.

  73. 3 head,

    As relates to your comment about “a penny being alot of money back then”, if I may:

    1) A penny taken from me by the redistributionist liberals is alot NOW. Its TOO MUCH and its time for us to make a stand. How many pennies are taken from the taxpayers every single day? They add up quickly.

    2) The “penny” was merely symbolic as relates to today.. No matter what time in history that we are talking about, its still alot less than a dollar. Its still too much. It was for the Colonists and it is for me.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  74. Larry, you know we are ready to make that stand. If I may be so bold… organize this community!

  75. Ken,

    Just to clarify your point, Obama’s not against guns, he’s against ammunition. He will increase the price so high we won’t be able to afford it. But of course allow gang members a reprieve so they can defend their tuff from law enforcement and other gangs who want to take over their tuff.

    If Obama gets his way he won’t outlaw guns and ammunition the United Nation will. He is on board with the one global government the United Nations is calling on, the same one that Prime Minister Brown is for. One government was the UN general counsel believes is best for the world. And Obama’s onboard and will likely enforcing a huge UN tax on Americans to pay for this privilege. There number one goals is to remove all guns. Redistribute global wealth from Countries that have wealth to those who don’t. He is on board with the ‘Law of the Seas Treaty” where the US Navy will work for the UN and they will dismantle our military forces. Obama is a sponsor in the Senate for the bill of the UN Global Poverty Act to add addition taxes up to $845 billion on to the already over burden American taxpayer over the next 10 to 15 years as he set his agenda of global spreading the wealth. This is his asinine idea to control and save the world from itself.

    The bill was already been put through the House as Nancy Pelosi who allowed the vote outside the eyes and ears of the public, C-SPAN camera and where there is no official record of the vote and how are representatives voted so should the public question the outcome no one person will be blamed on how they voted or lose their seat in Congress. I’m afraid this practice will become the norm in a democratically controlled Congress with a Democrat in the White House. All Americans should be weary of the democrat agenda that spreads throughout our Country. As we watch them dismantle our rights of civil liberties and rights.

    I want to thank Oliver North for bring this to some conservative’s attention and educating us on just how dangerous this will be to our future as the anti-American agenda crowd takes total control. The media is on board with this which explains why no one is speaking out against it. Bravo Nancy, Harry and Barack you hide your agenda from the American voters like you hide your vote on the bill for the “Law of the Seas Treaty”. I would hate to be you when the public finds out about your deception.

  76. What the democrats are doing is called treason and when they take the oath of office and recite these words… I will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America from enemies foreign and domestic. But are not following or keeping that oath is a treasonist act. They are sure no one will highlight their agenda or call them what they are… traitors to our Country. The conservative base can highlight and list how there action constitutes their treasonist acts upon the Nation. Democrats are using this term to highlight Joe Lieberman support of John McCain it’s no longer a difference of opinion, it’s a disloyalty to their party because he felt the Republican candidate’s background show loyalty to the Nation, whereas Obama only loyalty is to the democratic party.

  77. Amy….thanks for the laughs. I needed that.

  78. WHEN PEOPLE REALIZE THE MISTAKE THEY’VE MADE WITH THEIR “CHANGE” PROPHET SOMEONE , A RADICAL, WILL PUT AN END TO IT ALL. THEN HE CAN BE IMMORTALIZED LIKE HIS HERO JFK. BOBBY AND JOHN KENNEDY WOULD HAVE US ALL IN A SOUP LINE FIGHTING OVER BREAD LIKE GEORGE COSTANZA AND THE SOUP NAZI. I IMAGINE THEY’LL BEEF UP THE SECRET SERVICE AND SECURITY BUT THAT NEVER STOPPED LEE HARVEY OSWALD. SIX MONTHS…EIGHT MONTHS TOPS…MAYBE JOE BIDEN WILL HAVE A FULL HEAD OF HAIR BY THEN BECAUSE HIS SUBSCRIPTION TO MEN’S HAIR CLUB WILL KICK IN…

  79. Redbone,

    Can you send me a copy of The Obama File??? My e-mail address is md8680@gmail.com

  80. The Boston Tea Party was unique in that the colonists were united in their protest as compared to the divisiviness that permeates the America of today.

    There also was no political parties per se, else had there been a Democratic party it would have no doubt welcomed the increase in tax by the British, tried to allocate part of that, and add a half cent or penny of it’s own.

    The colonists acted out of defiance in the name of freedom of oppression for their fellow colonists. In being unfairly taxed, that oppression continues to be a mainstay in the Democratic party’s ideology, in this case, “spreading the wealth.” I see no difference in a rich man’s money and “tea.” Because he has more “tea” gives no one a moral right to impose taxes upon it.

    I do not hate or envy the rich man and I don’t despise or pity the poor. With exceptions, each have earned, or in the case of the latter not earned, their station in life. This is a country of many rights but no man should have the right to, or expect to be supported by the fruit of another man’s labor.

    With trillions of dollars in increases expected by the president-elect’s tax plans, Americans did not show the solidarity of the colonists while at the polls. What bothers me most about the past election is that the American people seem proud of themselves for seeing past race in electing Obama and are more proud of Obama than they are of America. Although Martin Luther King dreamt of a day when a man could be judged by his character rather than the color of his skin, Obama doesn’t quite fit that billing nor will his being elected president take away the imagined Great National Sin of slavery. All blacks, “race guilty” white liberals and independents who voted for Obama now feel like they belong to something… something which they know no more about than the powers before. It was a “feel good” election.

    America is supposed to be a nation of laws, where our ideas… equality before the law, opportunity, freedom of speech… command our loyalty. Anytime people have faith in a man over those ideas… it’s dangerous to the nation.

  81. Kookaburra,

    Point taken.
    Its just “England” is easier to type than “United Kingdom”… 🙂
    I too am part English (and Irish and Scots, and…), and its too bad the English get the bad wrap for a lot of crap.

    STITCH!

  82. What I am watching, reading and hearing from the posters on this board and other conservative blogs regarding the liberal agenda that has taken control over all aspects of the American society. The honest truth is that Conservatives, Moderates Republican only have us to blame by looking the other way and we under estimate to what lengths their deceptive ideals were willing to go to gain power and control.

    Watching “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight and listening to comments from Laura Ingraham regarding the voting fiasco in Minnesota highlights their dangerous and deadly agenda. I cannot sleep right now until I am able to write my thoughts down on paper.

    Ronald Reagan was the best modern day President who believed in the concept and the rights that our founding fathers gave us. They knew what was important and they provided us the document to save us from those who would abuse power. It’s in the Constitution and more Americans should sit down and read it to get a realistic understanding of what lies within that document. They understood how easily power can be abuse when put into the wrong hands, it’s dangerous and deadly. Those that crave power will always abuse it once they’ve gotten it.

    Throughout the years, conservative and moderates closed our eyes as the liberals slowly but cleverly worked their agenda into our society. They now control our education system, our judicial system, and the media/entertainment and have hammered away into influencing younger generations and immigrants to their way of thinking. We missed the signs and ignored the plans that gave them control and power. I think Reagan saw the signs and tried to warn conservative just how fragile and precarious freedom is, we took it for granted that it would always be there.

    But we allowed them to take that control and the liberals counted on our naïveté that Americans would not believe that socialism or communism would ever be a system of government for our Nation nor would it be an agenda that any political party would ever contemplate. They played us and when we had opportunities to vote for American patriots into office many of us made the choice to sit an election out. Another aspect that they also counted on. We had obvious opportunities to stop them in their tracks during the 25 years and didn’t.

    We find ourselves now electing a man who believes in the socialist agenda, and I cannot understand or contemplate how Americans would by that way of life and believe that it would be good for the survival of our Nation. Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves at the thought that Americans would even contemplate this form of government. We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing it to happen.

    I fear it maybe too late for conservatives republican to reclaim our Country as our congress slowly chips away our freedoms and rights. It’s frustrating to watch the liberals mock our election process by getting officials, elected or appointed, who should be unbiased and/or objective in making judgments in the outcome of our election process in Minnesota and Georgia. They’ve worked their way into local politics and state government who are now making the decisions with regard to tight elections and expect them to remain unbiased. In Minnesota their Secretary of State is in control over the recount system and just happens to be a Democrat. He’s thrown out 92 ballots that were for Norm Coleman, located ballots that were hiding in seat cushion and cars of local election officials. Those votes are counted and all belong to Al Franken. Some ballots were also remove for various reasons and will not be counted but now Franken has petition the court to allow him to look at them and determine the cause.

    The irony in all this is Democrats have complained for 8 years the Republican stole the election in 2000. The laws on the books at that time were clear and concise that George Bush was the winner and the Supreme Court upheld the election which was the reason our founding fathers placed it into the Constitution, the electorate college clause. Whose job is to verify the candidate is eligible to serve as U.S. presidential campaigns concentrate on winning the popular vote in a combination of states that choose a majority of the electors, rather than campaigning to win the most votes nationally. Democrats argued the Electoral College is inherently undemocratic and gives certain swing states disproportionate clout in selecting the President and Vice President. They have taken this election and used our own Constitution and are using it against us. I suspect the elector college will be one of items on the liberal agenda that will be looked at, dissected and possibly change to stop any more 2000 elections from ever occurring again. The law was upheld by the Constitution and the Supreme Court has no choice but to follow the letter of the law. Some Republicans stole nothing. This election shows all signs that point to a great deal of deceptive practices have run rampant as the democrats manipulate our entire election process to shut out Republicans and will use all means, legal and illegal to gain total control of our Country. On December 15 of this year it will be up to the elector college and our current Vice President to verify that Barack Obama qualifies to run for the Presidency.

    We live in a hateful world and need our leaders to understand that dangers and threats; the American people made the decision to elect a leaders who do not understand just how dangerous America enemies truly are to our way of life and democracy.

    I believe our Country is so radically divided, as more Americans fears grow regarding the plans and policies to come into focus the things Obama refused to admit while campaigning for Office. Our media or the unpress corp. never demanded answers from him nor did a lot of the public or the Republican Party and they should have illustrated what compliancy can do when good men do nothing. I think someone with attempt to take his life or we are headed for another modern day civil war and at stake will be those that love our Country from those who aim to destroy it.

  84. From Our Country Deserves Better:

    CNN is reporting that a new poll is finding a jump in Gov. Sarah Palin’s approval ratings, with more Americans now viewing her favorably than unfavorably. (49% view her favorably compared to 43% who view her unfavorably)

    All of us at the Our Country Deserves Better Committee want to say “thank you” to all of you who have been working with us to stick up for Gov. Palin!

    Some of you have asked “what about the other potential conservative candidates in 2012?” and this is a fair question. Our view is that it is a very llloooonnngggg time between now and the 2012 election, and we don’t know who our candidates will be. However, what we do know is that some in the Washington establishment and the news media alike have tried to smear and destroy Palin for the very reason that she is a conservative, and we have said that we will not allow that to stand without rallying to Palin’s defense – she’s earned our respect and support.

    As soon as we complete our “Thank You Sarah Palin” ad campaign we will focus primarily on the 2010 congressional elections and also standing up to any over-reach by President Elect Obama.

    But before we do, we feel it is critically important to use our power and influence, made possible only by the support of YOU our supporters, to defend an honorable woman who conducted herself with such grace and dignity on the campaign trail and committed no offense other than to be a passionate and articulate advocate for common sense conservative ideals. How can we NOT stand by her side? If WE won’t stand in solidarity with Palin, then WHO will? So it is our duty to rally behind her, and let her know we appreciate her record of public service and her sincere and passionate advocacy for conservative principles.

  86. I wish I could take credit for this…but I can’t. Just thought I would share this with all of you. It clearly denotes what I always suspected….what this election was all about…and now it is settled.

    WHITE GUILT IS DEAD
    By: Tom Adkins

    Look at my fellow conservatives! There they go, glumly shuffling along, depressed by the election aftermath. Not me. I’m virtually euphoric. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not thrilled with America’s flirtation with neo socialism. But there’s a massive silver lining in those magical clouds that lofted Barak Obama to the Presidency. For today, without a shred of intellectually legitimate opposition, I can loudly proclaim to America: The Era of White Guilt is over.
    This seemingly impossible event occurred because the vast majority of white Americans didn’t give a fluff about skin color, and enthusiastically pulled the voting lever for a black man. Not just any black man. A very liberal black man who spent his early career race-hustling banks, praying in a racist church for 2o years, and actively worked with America-hating domestic terrorists. Wow! Some resume! Yet they made Barak Obama their leader. Therefore, as of November 4th, 2008, white guilt is dead.
    For over a century, the millstone of white guilt hung around our necks, retribution for slave-owning predecessors. In the 60’s, American liberals began yanking that millstone while sticking a fork in the eye of black Americans, exacerbating the racial divide to extort a socialist solution. But if a black man can become President, exactly what significant barrier is left? The election of Barak Obama absolutely destroys the entire validation of liberal white guilt. The dragon is hereby slain.
    So today, I’m feeling a little “uppity,” if you will. From this day forward, my tolerance for having my skin color hustled is now exactly ZERO. And it’s time to clean house. No more Reverend Wright’s “God Damn America,” Al Sharpton’s Church of Perpetual Victimization, or Jesse Jackson’s rainbow racism. Cornell West? You’re a fraud. Go home. All those “black studies” programs that taught kids to hate whitey? You must now thank Whitey. And I want that on the final.
    Congressional Black Caucus? Irrelevant. Maxine Waters? Shut up. ACORN? Outlawed. Black Panthers? Go home and pet your kitty. Black separatists? Find another nation that offers better dreams. Go ahead…I’m waiting.
    Gangsta rappers? Start praising America. Begin with the Pledge of Allegiance. And please…no more ebonics. Speak English, and who knows where you might end up. Oh, yeah…pull up your pants. Your underwear is showing. You look stupid.
    To those Eurosnots who forged entire careers hating America? I’m still waiting for the first black French President.
    And let me offer an equal opportunity whupping. I’ve always despised lazy white people. Now, I can talk smack about lazy black people. You’re poor because you quit school, did drugs, had three kids with three different fathers, and refuse to work. So when you plop your Colt 45-swilling, Oprah watchin’ butt on the couch and complain “Da Man is keepin’ me down,” allow me to inform you: Da Man is now black. You have no excuses.
    No more quotas. No more handouts. No more stealing my money because someone’s great-great-great-great grandparents suffered actual pain and misery at the hands of people I have no relation to, and personally revile..
    It’s time to toss that massive, obsolete race-hustle machine upon the heap of the other stupid 60’s ideas. Drag it over there, by wife swapping, next to dope-smoking. Plenty of room right between free love and cop-killing. Careful…don’t trip on streaking. There ya go, don’t be gentle. Just dump it. Wash your hands. It’s filthy.
    In fact, Obama’s ascension created a gargantuan irony. How can you sell class envy and American unfairness when you and your black wife went to Ivy League schools, got high-paying jobs, became millionaires, bought a mansion, and got elected President? How unfair is that ???? Now, Like a delicious O’Henry tale, Obama’s spread-the-wealth campaign rendered itself moot by it’s own victory! America is officially a meritocracy. Obama’s election has validated American conservatism!
    So listen carefully…Wham!!!
    That’s the sound of my foot kicking the door shut on the era of white guilt. The rites have been muttered, the carcass lowered, dirt shoveled, and tombstone erected. White guilt is dead and buried.
    However, despite my glee, there’s apparently one small, rabid bastion of American racism remaining. Black Americans voted 98% for Barak Obama. Hmmm….In a color-blind world, shouldn’t that be 50-50? Tonight, every black person should ask forgiveness for their apparent racism and prejudice towards white people. Maybe it’s time to start spreading the guilt around.

  87. EILEEN,

    I couldn’t agree with a philosophy more! Our Fore Fathers, setting down in the Constitution mandating a government of checks and balances and the freedom of it’s people.

    The two party system and their politicians despotism plus citizen ignorance or lethargy are directly responsible for the government we have today.

    Democratic or Republican, both entitys will, in the long run, take this country to the same destination. It’s simply a matter of your choice as to whether it’s by Autobahn or two lane hiway. Neither party is concerned with the freedoms of it’s citizens but with the absolute control of the government, a.k.a. socialism.

    The donkey or elephant should not matter to true Americans and should be cast aside as well as the politicians that cling to them. The divisive “right” or “left” should come together in the common good for what is right for America, their country as a whole not keep making it more of a hole.

    The men or women we elect to office have to be honorable people with no political party affiliations. Their caliber must be of only the highest morals and ethics and we must, above all else, demand they employ these qualities while working for us.

    There would be sacrifices required of today’s dis-enfranchised public. They that would have to unite in this common cause as well as many other concessions. Could this be compared to the unity and sacrifice of The Boston Tea Party? I think so, as we would be revolting against the oppression of an ever increasingly tyranical goverment. And we would be serving notice that we, as a free people, were no longer tolerating it.

    The government, rebuilt in this manner does in no way guarantee that our America would crumble into the sea. It would rise once again, clean of bureaurcracy, stagnated politicians and start anew. The wisdom of experience gained in our mistakes in the last two hundred years, combined with that of the creators of our country, holds nothing but a strong future for America.

  88. kaydoomom… on it’s way!
