The Day Of Reckoning

Those who understand the damage done by the New Deal and the Great Society had better buckle themselves in because the “New Kids on the Block” are going to create a “Progressive Potemkin Village” to beat the band..

“Talk” always soothes the savage liberal beast. They love the hypnotic tones of their sonorous socialism. The words aren’t important to them at all, they just need to hear their deities and to “feel” their bleating hearts. It is therefore logical that numbers are not important to them either. That is why the “size” and “scope” of the Obama budget is perfectly logical when you factor in these liberal defects.

The Obama administration, to be known from this point forward as “The Wrecking Crew”, have tabled a “budget” of at least 3.6 TRILLION dollars. In an article entitled, “Bam’s Budget”, Brian Darling says that, “The plan is light on candor, too.” Liberals abhor candor with the same fervor as they eschew ethics. Obama’s mentor Karl Marx, never provided a detailed description as to how communism would function as an economic system either..

Even though the details are as meager as the onion grass atop Biden’s empty melon, we do know that EVERYONE’S taxes will be raised appreciably, all businesses will be “progressively penalized” (both will be looking at one trillion dollars in tax hikes to pay for this “black magic”..) and the liberal “interests” have just received their winning lottery cards.

Marty Regalia, chief economist at the US Chamber of Commerce says that this is, “the biggest return to the welfare state that we’ve seen..” Marty, the liberal lice aren’t even getting warmed up.

Their aversion to numbers means that Obama has no problem with the 1.8 trillion-dollar deficit that he has created for fiscal year 2009. That will come to a 12.3 percent share of the economy.

When the economy is in a recession, the logical focus for trillions of dollars should be the liberal base, the nation’s loafers, bums and mendicants. Obama is wasting billions on “health care and education” which, as we all know, is the cornerstone of the nation’s ECONOMY.

Taxpayers for Common Sense says that there are 8,570 earmarks costing 7.7 billion dollars that the “accountability and transparency” simpletons of the left have “conveniently missed”.. The House Appropriations Committee themselves estimated the waste at 3.8 billion and those are the Obama oligarchs..

Surely the middle class should pay for “Swine Odor and Manure Management Research” to the tune of 1.7 million dollars. I’ll save them the cash: avoid liberals and their “economic plans” and you will shun “swine odor” and “manure”, respectively. There is nearly two million more for Obama to give to the Democratic dregs.

Obama wants to place 634 billion dollars for “health care reform”, socialized medicine by any other name. Partial payment for this comes in the form of 318 billion dollars in tax hikes. The urge to turn the nation into Democrats (vagabonds, derelicts) continually shows itself with their desire to “reform” health care.

Consider this: the liberals all believe in the Darwinist mythology. One of its “theories” is in short, Darwin’s “natural selection” or, “survival of the fittest”. (applied by Herbert Spencer in “Principles of Biology” 1864.) If “only the fittest organisms will prevail”, why do the liberals insist on enabling the urchins by redistribution as opposed to applying a type of “post partum family planning” to the useless? We know the ghouls love their rubber aprons and their engraved ice tongs, so how could the Eugenically driven liberal sub species miss this opportunity to euthanize?

Since the government is going to be a charity/redistribution organization, they will be penalizing those who contribute to the nation’s actual charity organizations. Obama and his green eye shade goons will be lowering the write-offs for charitable donations and this “change” has the charity groups justifiably worried.

Since both words and numbers are irrelevant to the left, it’s always troubling when they start talking about “taxing the rich” or “raising taxes on the nation’s wealthiest”. One of the many unpunished crimes of the Clintonistas was their “flexibility” on the whole “rich” classification. What started out as “$250,000” under Caligula ended up at “$40,000”..

The government will be “spending” at least 28 percent of the total economy this year. Once they begin to concentrate on their new version of the “February Revolution” of 1917, that percentage will move towards the 100 percent that they are all mentally masturbating over..

Keep in mind that there is “no comprehensive plan for reducing the estimated 12.7 trillion dollar national debt.” No “time table.” No way out of this “quagmire” that was planned and seeded by the Clintons and “Bath House” Barney. No “exit plan” from this seemingly endless liberal misery..

The chicanery of the “Obama shell game”, counts as a “middle class tax cut” Obama’s “call to prevent the Bush tax cuts from expiring for families making less than $250,000 a year..” More moronic “new math”, preventing a tax hike is magically transformed into a tax cut, a tax cut put in place by the previous administration..

There is the new “revenue stream” that will allegedly bring in $646 billion dollars STARTING in 2012. The current economic collapse is apparently not that urgent through the jaundiced Obama eyes.. Here is the rub, the money will be coming from the “cap and trade” system. Here Obama will penalize companies by “regulating carbon emissions”. Companies will pay the government for “carbon credits” as a cost of doing business. Guess what: the companies will pass this “cost” onto the consumers in the form of higher prices for their products.. Isn’t “change” great?

Here the liberals have a “blithe disregard” for “the burgeoning national debt”. The “national debt” and the “deficit” were all the rage just such a short time ago when a Republican was in the Oval Office. The truly sad part is that this will only get worse when Nuremberg Nancy, “Land Shark” Reid and their collectivist contemporaries get their grimy hands on this “budget”..

Obama told Congress that we have come to the “day of reckoning” for “past economic blunders..” If pathological lying weren’t hardwired into the liberal DNA, I would “hope” that that meant that the Clinton/Frank economic pogrom of the nineties would be labeled as such and would be properly dealt with via the appropriate prison terms..

I am not sure which “past blunders” are more frightening, the ones under Clinton or the ones of the past twenty one days under Obama..

  1. Another great article Larry ripping the left leaning liberal’s agenda. An important question that was omitted by the media coronation of the King of Horse Shit. That question was what do you consider the term “the wealthy” to be? It appears now to be anyone with a job. This farce gets sicken every day as they claim “sensibility” in government. I think the government and sensibility in the liberals control is no longer the same but polar opposites.

    We are only in his the beginnings of his presidency and this madness of a spending sphere is in its infant stages. I dread every day turning on the news to hear what they done today. They are so arrogant and are basically flipping the bird to every American. It’s time to break their middle finger and place it in any open rectal muscle.

    I prayed to God that Obama should lose this election to save our Country from the stupid. And God was either busy or doing something else at that time. I’m starting to think we needed to learn a lesson by electing this farce of a leader to make sure we never trust the Democrats ever again. What is happening now to our Country seems to be pre-ordained and what is going on is exactly what I suspected would happen, but over the span of four years. We are into a month of his sham of a Presidency, and look at the destruction he has caused. We all needed to learn a lesson that needed to be taught to us. No matter how painful it becomes, I think we needed to do this to make sure we never do it again.

    You’re welcome to disagree with me.

    Nice one Larry,

    Have been away at the beach (Hua Hin) for a week where happiness was a glass of whiskie and a trickle of sweat slowly finding its way to the cheeks of one’s arse. Lovely women, good food, great atmosphere and all in the middle of winter. The only negative was observing the Nordic Invasion (The more Southern climes of Phuket, Krabi, etc. are considered danger areas, what with the Islamic terrorists wanting to blow everything up – hence the tourist gaggle coming further North).

    Eileen, You are as perceptive as ever in stating “I’m starting to think we needed to learn a lesson by electing this farce of a leader …” This is the only argument that makes sense when trying to fathom as to why and how America and the rest of us are in such a predicament. Its hard to imagine that just a short time ago (January 20, 1981 to January 20, 1989), we (the world) felt protected in the arms of Ronnie-The-One and we felt the man’s Love for all mankind (except the Ruskies, where Ronnie borrowed Gen. George S. Patton’s number 7 smile – reserved for Russians).

    Larry, we are lucky to have this family – It provides sensibility in a time of insensibility.

    I’ll leave you with a quote from Klinger (M*A*S*H 4077)

    “May your life be blessed with blue skies, green oases and spit-free camels”

  3. Hi Larry,

    Here are a couple of quotes I think you’ll find interesting. I can’t help but think of our Jihadist President whenever I read them. They are portions of writings written by Karl Marx. They are from the eye poping book “Marx & Satan” written by Richard Wurmbrand. He is the founder of the “Voice of the Martyrs”,

    “Then I will be able to walk triumphantly,
    Like a God, through the ruins of their kingdom,
    Every word of mine is fire and action.
    My breast is equal to that of the Creator.”-Karl Marx

    And another,

    “A silent, unavoidable revolution is taking place in society, a revolution that cares as little about the human lives it destroys as an earthquake cares about the houses it ravages. Classes and races that are too weak to dominate the new conditions of existence will be defeated.”-Karl Marx

    It does not surprise me that we are moving quickly now towards a socialist reality. “Capitalism” and “freedom and liberty” are never long separated from the Judeo-Christian ethic. They all three force men to look beyond themselves to consider the good of those around them. The liberal’s “culture of death” by necessity jettisoned this ideal long ago.
    The true socialist man never allows himself to see the world other than in materialistic terms. Love and joy and peace are discovered only in the spiritual, a place he must never allow himself to wander. He must never allow himself to be something other than “the hunter,” constantly biting those around him lest he discover that he indeed does have a soul. Obama is this “hunter’s” son. He boasts of the good things he is going to do but if he were ever to follow through he would surely be cast down from Heaven and be trampled on by men, something I suspect he vowed to himself long ago would never happen again. This is, I think, the essence of “Marxism”. The true marxist decries the exploiter yet because he is a materialist “exploitation” becomes his only path to Godhood. Nothing else is left to him. He rails against poverty, throwing pennies to the crowd but at the same time is cashing the trillion dollar check written to himself.
    Contrary to the claims of the socialist (communist) the exploiters are never long rewarded in a pure capitalist society. They are anathema to it because they never seek to meet the needs of their customers. The repeat customer (and repeat employee I might add) has always been and will always be the true capitalist’s lifeblood. Love and joy and peace are indispensible elements in a true capitalist’s business plan.
    The day Larry ceases to love those he writes to is the day NLTZ ceases to exist. It is the inviolate law of capitalism. The opposite is true for the socialist, misery is the only product allowed, as long as the shelves are bare, immortality can be attained. Who is Stalin without a hundred million dead? The gulag has always been and will always be the only true accomplishment of the socialized society.

    And yes I’m venting a little. That’s what family’s for right?

  4. Larry,

    Have you given any thought to publishing you work? I truly believe your writing should be published. If you do there are a few conservative publishers out there. The biggest one being Regnery Publishing. Most of the NY Times best sellers hale from there. Here is their email for submission. submissions@regnery.com. I’ll attached the link to their website as well, included their address and phone and fax information. http://www.regnery.com/about.html

    Think about it, because your writing is just as good as Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity.

  5. Truly enjoyed the article, Larry. Well Done! (As usual)

    Had a new bumper sticker printed up at makestickers.com (not a plug):

    One Big Ass Mistake, America.

    (With the capital letters twice as large, and in red, it makes for a deceiving yet satisfying bumper sticker.)

  6. Eileen,

    I have been working towards being published for well over a year now. It’s kind of a vicious circle.

    No publishing house will take an “unsoilicited manuscript. Regnery included. Believe me, I’ve tried.

    You need a literary agent. Good news: a literary agent doesn’t get paid until they sell your work. They usually take a flat 10%. So far, so good..

    They get around dealing with folks like me by saying “I am not taking new clients”.

    The door is then closed again..

    I try almost every day, between research and writing and having a more than full time job, to either get published, syndicated or trying to get new conservatives to visit/subscribe here..

    I appreciate your kind words and your encouragement.

    Thank you for all of your contributions to NLTZ, you make this a better site with each comment.

    Larry

  7. Arthur,

    Cobber, when I grow up I want to be just like you..

    Enjoy the beach.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  8. Chris,

    Vent at will, because that’e what family IS for..

    Great comments and I will remember those quotes.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  9. KC,

    My God, that is FUNNY and I know funny..

    Thank you. I needed that..

    Larry

  10. Taxing the rich at 100% won’t pay for Obama’s budget. The Wall Street Journal has reported that taxing the rich at 100% won’t pay for Obama’s budget. Barack Obama promised not to raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000 per year. Where is he going to get the money? The numbers indicate Obama will need to take 100% of the income of everyone making over $75,000.

  11. From what I have seen, so far, of Obama’s economic plan and his ideas concerning America, I think he would consider Reagan-omics to be the financial blunder. Of course, our whole family knows that BHO”s ideas about everything are wrong!
    Larry, thanks for another wonderful liberal-bashing article. It is a good thing you aren’t trying to get the lefties to read this wisdom, or you would have to use much smaller words.
    I think Eileen is right and you should be published. Have you considered trying to get Ann Coulter or Sean Hannity to take a look at your work and give their publisher a good word?

  12. Todd,

    Thanks for your kind words.

    I have tried both Ann and Sean and I have yet to get a response back.

    I know that they are both quite busy and that it is alot to expect from someone that they have never heard of.

    I keep trying to walk the fine line between “being a pest” and “being persistent”.

    Larry

  13. Larry Think about Glenn Beck. He is on our side 100%, and I think he will give you a voice to the people about NLTZ and highlight your literary ability. Chris If you will allow me i would like to send your quotes to about 15 of my friends. Great article. GOD bless the USA..

  14. Graywolf,

    Long story short, Glenn Beck has had my materials “on his desk” since early January.

    I hold out hope that something positive will take place through Glenn..

    Maybe I should start a “lets all email Glenn Beck” kind of thing..Nahhh.

    I am still praying about it but I could use some help.

    Everyone keep Michele in their prayers.

    Redbone, Eileen and Amy, how are things with your recoveries?

    Keep us posted.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  15. Margaret in CT

    Such a great article Larry, and great comments, to boot! When I’m out and about, I’m hearing a lot of “Oh, m’gosh, I didn’t realize he would do THIS!” Monica Crowley said today that 59% of people polled think the government is overstepping its bounds. I hope those who are now joining the original 12% of us who NEVER expected anything different from this leftist Bill Ayers-trained president will remember the part that the Congress has played in this debacle. The Botulinum Babe and her Komrades must be dealt with at election time, and we must keep beating the drums of protest so that the less radical of them will shrink away from her Marxist plans, thus diluting her power in the House. To steal a phrase we heard ad nauseam during the election season: We can have an effect before the elections. Yes we can!

    I agree with Eileen. This is a lesson that the drowsy electorate needed to learn. Open your eyes. Know BEFORE you vote!

  16. Maragret,

    “Botuinum Babe and her Komrades”..

    Very nice.

    Shall we “rock the vote” or maybe “vote or die”?

    I see a remake of an old sci-fi clasic: “Invasion of the Income Snatchers”..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  17. So true Larry…did you happen to see the regressive taxation on domestic energy producers? On all offshore oil drilling and those areas that aren’t even under production. As well as the punitive taxation on coal as well. So you can add this as a tax increase on everyone as gasoline,heating oil,electricity (as 80% or more is produced by fossil fuels,particularly coal and natural gas) prices go through the roof, as the tax increase will be passed on to consumers by the producers. How is this punishment of domestic production supposed to help end our dependence on foreign oil, especially from pest holes in the mid east and Venezuela? See the liberal idea is not to end our dependence on fossil fuel, it is to make it so expensive that “alternative” energy will be cost competitive. Of course this will be no big deal for the millionaire liberals, but e as the rest of us are driven into financial ruin, we can all depend on “public” transportation, after BHO makes our private automobiles to expensive to own. Brave New World anyone?

  18. A news story a couple weeks back about the guy in Tennessee getting stopped inspired me to make a sign for my car that says ABORT OBAMA NOT BABIES, which i now proudly display. I cant seem to get stopped like he did but I will continue to try…hehehe.
    Ive also received a tshirt from tshirthell.com that has a drawing of a guy sitting on a toliet with the script saying THE KORAN….NOW IN TWO-PLY…..walking around just waiting for some bozo to confront me…..lol
    Fellow Patriots, as you might well have figured out by now, our current president and leadership is intent on destroying this country under the guise of dealing with a “crisis” and installing an oligarchy. http://www.nmatv.com/video/849/The-American-form-of-government
    This link explains the different forms of government, hope you all get a chance to watch it. Its very clear to me where this country is headed and its not good. What we can do about it short of armed rebellion is a mystery to me.
    This corrupt administration must be stopped for the good of this country.
    Hopefully a true patriot will do what is necessary to put an end to this neo-facist’s regime.
    God help us all.

  19. Larry Thanks for the response. I had sent an email to Glenn Beck before I read your response.If we all spread the word about NLTZ something should happen. I think I’ll go to some other sites and suggest they become educated by reading NLTZ . The attack has to start soon or there is no hope for the dumbed up population that wants to be spoon fed by big brother.

  20. Redneck..

    as I have said many many times.
    There are only 1,086,000 people in this country that make at least $250k or more.
    If you took ALL their money, you would get about $500 billion.
    But you would only get that for 1 year.
    Those people are NOT going back to work next year – why should they??!!

    That son-of-a-…muslim, Sultan Obama, is spending $5 TRILLION.
    You, me and over 100 million other middle class Americans make over $10 TRILLION per year.
    Who the heck do they think is going to pay for all this crap?

    STITCH!

  21. Larry,

    I’m now reading Bill O’Reilly latest book and he talks about getting started when he was in college and writing articles for the college paper. He sent his work to a few professional journalists and he got some great feedback.

    For sometime now I’ve wanted to forward one of your articles to him as well as other conservatives/independent writers.

    My mother worked in the publishing business, so I may be able to help you or give you some pointers to place you on the right track.

    To get noticed by the powers that be, you should enter any and all writing contest, where there are professional reviewing the material. It doesn’t get you noticed yet but it’s a foot in the door, maybe just your pinky. After you have entered a few writing contests and won, they’ll be some buzz about your work. The more contest won the better. It is then that the sanctimonious Literacy agents will appear. They don’t want to put their name behind a loser who won’t sell books and bring their own name down as a representative.

    I know it’s a very frustrating process and it’s like becoming an actor, you cannot get work unless you are a union member and you cannot be a union member unless you get work, The Catch 22 scenario. What’s in your favor is your non-fiction political writing is hot right now, especially conservative political writing. So you need to find a literary agent that specializes in political writing.

    The one genuine difference between the internet and print publications is that anyone can put anything online very cheaply and easily, while a printed book is an expensive venture that has to go through a professional publishing company’s publishing processes. Since you operate this website (but does word press own it?) Technically, you publish your writing on the internet through the uses of Word Press. There are a few internet sites that can weed out the fake agents out there.

    Also keep in mind that your manuscript needs to be put into a writer’s format. There is tons of software for script writing or manuscript, if what you submit is not set up in the proper way they won’t even read it.

    Here is a conservative writing contest http://www.commonconservative.com/submissions.shtml. There is also a place that advertises current writing contests at http://www.writing.com/main/handler/item_id/contests . The list is long and most appear to be poetry contest but it couldn’t hurt to look there every once in a while.

    I hope some of this is helpful in your pursuit of becoming a professional writer. If you need anything else please don’t hesitate to ask.

  22. the current financial crisis was caused by the Democrats’ mis-management of the mortgage giants Fredde and Fannie.
    Seems that 1/2 of 1% of all homes are in foreclosure.

    What do you think will happen when 60% of the 99.5% NOT in foreclosure decide to STOP making our house payments?

    This could be our “Boston Tea Party”.

    spread the word.

    STITCH!

  23. tsnamm,

    Right as rain, my friend.

    All of these “sideways” taxes on consumables are unquestionably a tax increase on EVERYONE!!

    Liberals fall into two catagories: the uber-rich and the mendicants.

    The uber-rich HAVE to tow the liberal line by “speaking out” for the “cause du jour”. Darfur, the environment, AIDS, whatever..

    They donate their TIME and they ask people like you and me for our MONEY for their pet causes. The uber-rich liberals get a pass from the mendicants by “believing in and speaking out for the cause”. Never mind their money grubbing capitalism, in public they’re are all about being “Red”..when it comes to their bank accounts, they are 100% red, white and blue..

    The mendicants better themselves by bringing everyone else above them down. The only successful targets of the mendicants “guilt” are the uber-rich liberals who do nothing more than “talk” about the mendicants problems..

    The only people who will call the liberals smart are other liberals..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

    Have we picked up any new members from my push on other conservative websites?

  25. Dear Family,

    Reading these comments everyday makes me wonder why there aren’t more conservatives here as opposed to swapping monosyllabic grunts with the libs over at Human Events..

    “Dumbing down” one’s comments in order to “answer” liberal “thoughts” like: “this blog is dumb” or “conservatives are stupid a**holes” or even “you all take it in the ***”. (Actual quotes from liberal slimings/comments that have been deleted.

    Lately, they have been finding humor in our prayers for Michele and others. I will not waste your time quoting those pagan/atheist/deviant sentiments.

    THAT is why they are not allowed here. The only liberal who was ever civil was James McPherson and he is always welcome here anytime to comment.

    The NLTZ “Fairness Doctrine” lives on..

    Thanks as always to all of you for making this site better with each passing day.

    To The family,
    From a Mate in Australia who categorized the following under ‘jokes’. If it wasn’t so close to the bone I’d agree, but seeing that each point could be put forward as gospel, I’ll label it under ‘Explanation>Rudd-The-Dud>Stimulus Package’. Frightening! especially the part about the KIWIs (New Zealanders) who are almost on-par with those who occupy space across America’s southern border and a goodly parcel inside (minus the drugs of course).

    Important Information on the upcoming Stimulus Payment

    This year, Taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment. This is a very exciting new program that I will explain using the Q and A format:

    Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?

    A. It is money that the federal government will send to Taxpayers.

    Q. Where will the government get this money?

    A. From taxpayers.

    Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?

    A. Only a smidgen.

    Q. What is the purpose of this payment?

    A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

    Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China?

    A. Shut up.

    Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the Economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

    If you spend that money at K-Mart, all the money will go to China.

    If you spend it on petrol it will go to the Arabs.

    If you purchase a computer it will go to India.

    If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to South East Asia or New Zealand (heaven forbid).

    If you buy a car it will go to Japan or Korea

    If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan.

    And none of it will help the economy.

    We need to keep that money here.
    You can keep the money here by spending it at garage sales, going to a football game, or spending it on prostitutes, beer, wine or tattoos, since these are the only business’s still here in Australia.

  27. Eileen,

    Thanks for the tips, I will look into each of them.

    It’s hard to track where new members come from unless they comment and tell us where they heard about us from.

    I appreciate anyone’s help as I am out there every day trying my best to squeeze more than 24 hours out of each day..

    Not having much luck with that though.

    There seems to be kind of a “oh well, nothing we can do about it” kind of feeling amongst the public.

    Went to the bookstore and hung around in the “current events” section to see who was reading what. The vast majority of the shoppers were picking up and paging through books by conservatives. Struck up a converstaion with one shopper who literally picked up every conservative book on the shelf.

    In short, he said that it was all out of his hands.

    I told him that we at NLTZ have a saying, “Never give up, never give in and never again”.

  28. Arthur,

    Sound words.

    The unions debilitated the U.S. as a manufacturing center.

    Here union workers demand 65.00 (plus benefits) to put a screw in the dashboard of a Ford.

    With all of the trouble the domestic car makers are fighting through, the unions aren’t giving an inch and they will undoubtably strike when their contract expires.

    Let ’em. Then just go “Reagan vs. the air traffic controllers” on them..

    If unemployment hits some high numbers, how long would the line be for job apps at GM for say, 50.00 an hour?

    The scenario sounds appealing but it is important to remember that the unions are in bed with the liberals.

    If the liberal government has too large a stake in the automakers, the automakers will be forced to cave in by the liberal government who will soon be subsidizing everything..

    Only time will tell, my friend.

    Thanks as always cobber,

    Larry

  29. Eileen,
    I too believe that this is a lesson from God. Unfortunately, since He is being taken away more and more even when the good guys are in control, I think it is going to be a long and difficult one. The loudmouth left minority are winning, and I am truly afraid for my kids and grandkids.

    I live in Sweden. The lowest income group here is still taxed 33% on income ( I know because I am on disability from U.S., while my husband, a Swedish citizen and liberal, is on a very small pension), and the rate goes up from there to as high as 55%. That does not include a 25% sales tax!! Of course not on food, that is only 12.5%!!!

    They have the audacity to say health care is free! I have been in that health care system for 5 years now. I must admit, most of my care has been good, just slow. I have had one spinal surgery done here and am facing another since I am losing control of my hands, but a hurried surgery here means you will have it in 3 or 4 months….sigh.

    Anyway…Larry,always love the columns, but it is so hard to type, I just rarely comment, but know that I am always here in spirit!

    Cathy

  30. Cathy,
    I hope you are able to get your surgery before you lose all control of your hands! I guess you weren’t one of the people interviewed by Michael Moore, when he made his movie “Sicko.”
    I am not completely convinced that what is happening now is a lesson from God. I think He has simply allowed us to find ourselves in this predicament because so many of our nation have turned away from Him!

  31. It would seem that I have a convert, thank you Eileen for agreeing with what I’ve been trying to tell people all this time. We needed for this lesson to be rammed up the collective butt of every American, as a reminder of why electing liberals is not only a very bad idea, but it is unhealthy for the country.My disgust for the American electorate has been on display for some time, and my disgust will not be abated until we throw all the bums out. It is the duty of every conservative to explain to others around them (in words of one syllable when speaking to liberals, as none of them have the intelligence to grasp concepts beyond gimme, gimme, gimmee), how their failure to elect responsibly has placed this nation and their wallets in mortal peril. I also believe that we should find a new reason everyday to loathe liberals in general, and Obama in particular (thankfully, their arrogance is so colossal that this isn’t an issue), and ensure that they are legally removed from power as soon as possible. When confronting a liberal whom is praising the false Messiah, one need only say,”Ye 52%, ye suckers!”

  32. Arthur Nankervis

    Cathy,

    My thoughts are with you this day. I truly hope that the mentioned surgery will fix the problem with the hands. In the interim, have you ever considered using a ‘Speech Recognition Program’? There are some really good ones on the market and you would be surprised as to just how accurate they are. I use ‘Dragon NaturallySpeaking’ (no space) and find it excellent.

    As mentioned in a previous post to this thread, I made note of “The Nordic Invasion” here in Thailand. From this group of tourists, it seems that every second person has either their arm in a sling, leg in a brace, or in a wheelchair. All ages are involved and unless they have been involved in a bar-brawl, they must be here for elective surgery. Thailand has a well-oiled scheme that provides medical services to foreign tourists at a price that is considered expensive by local standards, but at about half or a third of the cost in European habitats. Most doctors/surgeons are Oxford or Harvard trained in the entire gambit of medical procedures. had a mate who lived in Vietnam (dead now) who used to fly into Bangkok, have an operation and then fly home. It was cheaper that way than for him rather than flying back to Australia and receive free medical procedures per OZ Veteran Affairs. Don’t know how your medical insurance / disability payments could be used to defray costs, but worth a look.

    Once again, my kindest thoughts are with you.

  33. The stock market unerringly predicts the future. When the Dow drops from 14,000 to 7,000 it is saying clearly, ‘we don’t trust this Community Activist to know anything more than how to foment trouble in an inner city’.
    His open war on the investor and small business classes are clear, “I will squeeze you until I have the last drop of blood in your veins”. So with that obvious message what do they do? They sell their stocks, move into tax exempt bonds and Treasury Notes leaving Obama with no revenue.

    Does he think the rich got rich by accident?

    In a free society, higher taxes produce LESS REVENUE, lower taxes produce MORE REVENUE. Why is this so hard to understand?

    I’m flabbergasted at the degree of denial we have fallen into. Denial is not a river in Egypt.

    I’m hoping someone with national prestige (Gingrich comes to mind) comes forward and calls for a “March on Washington”. As soon as it’s announced I’ll drop everything and go there. I’ve always wanted to be able to chant the mindless chant that the radicals have been using for years:
    “HEY HEY HEY HEY, HOW MUCH MONEY DID YOU PISS AWAY TODAY?”

    or:

    “YO YO YO YO, WHERE DID ALL OUR MONEY GO GO”?

  34. Graywolf,

    Send those quotes to 150 people if you can. Tell them to get the book too.

    Chris.

  35. Larry,

    I agree about the blogging. I used to blog on several other conservative sites with mixed commentators. You are dragging yourself down in order to converse or answer a liberal. Invariably, their responses becomes insultive and more non-sensical.

    Due to the fact that your articles on NLTZ and it’s family provide the true course of conservatism, this is the only site I blog on now. I find the comments of everyone very interesting as, even in my years, they provide me with different angles to veiw things and think about. In short, a different take.

    Thank you and all the family!

    And Choppie, Cathy, you keep in there girl. Good to hear from you.

  36. Let’s all of us start promoting this site for Larry in hopes of recruiting new conservatives to this site.

    This is what I’ve been putting up on the blogger boards. Your welcomed to use it.

    Open invitation to a great conservative blog website where honest debates on the issues is always welcomed. Stop by for a visit and sit a spell. It is my favorite conservative site and we are generally civil and respectfully to one another opinions and enjoy civil debates on all the current issues. The web address is https://noleftturnz.wordpress.com/

    I think it’s time to visit other conservative blogs and ask the site moderator to include a link to NLTZ on their site.

  37. Graywolf,

    Please send them to 150 friends and get the book too.

    Chris.

  38. Eileen….I couldn’t agree with you more. As much as Obama is gonna hurt us all, it has DEFINITELY opened our eyes and maybe even “awakened a sleeping giant” as our Japanese friends once found out….only this time the giant is Conservatism. “No “exit plan” from this seemingly endless liberal misery….” Larry said…. I see an exit beginning in 2010….till then, hold one= folks, we’re in for a rough ride 😦

    Thanks for all your hard work Larry

  39. Exactly Larry…its just like all these “concerts” for some worthy cause…the multi millionaire “artists” donate their “valuable time and talent”, and the rest of the unwashed masses are supposed to pay for it all…(e.g. Live Aid etc etc). I’m reminded of John “captain” Travolta speaking at a gathering about how we need to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases…ummm John…you own a 707,,,a 1960’s technology jet airliner designed to fly 150 passengers and you only take 4. Its estimated that HIS carbon footprint was equal to 1500 regular folks. Of course its par for the course, you and I are supposed to sacrifice OUR standard of living for all this Pollyanna crap, but the John Travolta’s of the world will continue to jet back and forth worldwide in the most polluting airliner operating lecturing the rest of us how we are selfish and need to lower our expectations….these people are filth.

  40. I knew I liked Clint Eastwood.

    Actor Clint Eastwood sees nothing funny about political correctness.

    The “Dirty Harry” actor told Germany’s Der Spiegel that modern society lives in a state of fear over the possibility of being labeled racist for telling jokes based on ethnicity or nationality.

    “People have lost their sense of humor,” he told the magazine. “In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth otherwise you will be insulted as a racist.

    “I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a ‘Sam the Jew’ or ‘Jose the Mexican’ — but we didn’t think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem.

    “I don’t want to be politically correct. We’re all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything.”

  41. beyond disgusted

    Wow Larry – the loony left is making fun of us for caring about Michele and others in the family; and this is the party who pretends to “care”? It is hard for me to even consider them to be fellow human beings!

  42. This just keeps getting worse, read the article in Newmax about Obama earmarks in the latest bill. Didn’t he say he was going to line by line and remove them from any Bill that comes across his desk? Was I dreaming? http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/obama_budget_earmarks/2009/02/27/186605.html?s=al&promo_code=7B3A-1

    It now appears that Victoria Kennedy, Teddy’s 2nd wife maybe taking his seat. Another liberal to follow in his size 11 shoes. Read about it here. http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/ted_kennedy_senate_wife/2009/02/27/186608.html
    Why don’t they just say no experience to reply for a Senate seat.

  43. beyond disgusted

    Wow Larry – the loony left is making fun of us for caring about Michele and others in the family; and this is the party who pretends to “care”? It is hard for me to even consider them to be fellow human beings! Thank you so much for making this a lunatic free zone.

    Vincent,

    Obama & fellow left wing nut jobs in Congress understand that lower taxes bring in more revenue; they don’t care. Obama said it himself during the campaign, “It’s not about the money, it is about fairness”. Of course, fairness, to him, means getting even with those he perceives to be the evil rich. Allow me to define the evil rich as those of us not on welfare.

    Eileen,

    I have had similar thoughts about this being a lesson from God. But how many Obama voters will “get it”? With all the new entitlement spending, more & more people will be seduced into voting democrat because their hands are out and they are getting “free” goodies from the government. Of course, that has been the plan all along.

  44. beyond disgusted

    Orlando, FL is planning a tea party in March. Let’s hear it for Rick Santelli! He has really started something!

  45. Thanks Larry For another fine article. Two thumbs up.
    To understand The Obama’s budget plan,one must remember that his definition of ” The Rich/Wealthy” is on a sliding scale as demonstrated during the campain. It started out at $250 thousand. Then in another speach dropped to $225 thousand and towards the end had hit a low of about $150 thousand. So one can see that ” The rich” is basicly whatever they need it to be.

  46. Larry

    As always, a great article. Liberals, despite all their pretense, only care for themselves so they don’t have any sympathy for anyone else. I’ve been thinking about having a “Tea Party” here in my home town, which is by the way named Liberty. However, it will have to wait until we can safely get to a body of water.

    Michele, Redbone, Eileen and Amy

    I will keep you in my prayers.

    Thanks for The “Joke” Unfortunately, it is getting harder to find products “Made in the USA”.

  47. I surely do wish I hate the time tonight to read each one of the above responses. Such good writing. Larry, I sure do hope that eventually your writings will catch someone’s attention. It must be terribly frustrating. In the meantime, we in the family do appreciate your writing abilities bigtime. I am convinced that Obama is supposed to be at the helm of our country. Remember, God is in control of all of it. He places people where he wants them for His own reasons. And God’s ways are not our ways, very often. He sees the big picture far beyond our abilities. And God takes care of His own, too. It’s so rough to watch our wonderful country and economy being trashed like it is and will further be. Keep up the skilled writing, Larry.

  48. Goofed the first line of my posting above. It should read, “I surely do wish I had the time… (sorry).

  49. Rick2

    I totally agree with you that God is in control and He will take care of His own. In looking back at our history, I can see that all the signs leading toward this catastophe were there but few people really saw them. I feel that He keeps our eyes closed until He wants us to see. Those of us who see, are His and He will not desert us. The “False Prophet” who sits in our White House will only be there as long as God wills.

    Fair comment!

    Hear! Hear!

    Thank you.

    But as you’ve observed in this thread and elsewhere, yours and ours are voices in the wilderness. Good luck with parading your stuff to the East Coast Establishment, too. I’ve had your experience for years and have pretty much given up.

    Try self-publishing, perhaps?

    Or gather a gang like your friends and readers, here — and form an essentially Western United States publishing group? Worked for Jazz! We Westerners are a different breed, more closely related to our Aussie Cousins than we are to the Eastern Seaboard’s huddled masses.

  51. LadyWolf and Whosebone, I believe that video is slightly wrong, in that the linear diagram is better shown as a horseshoe shape, with Fascism and Nazism at the right tip, Republic in the middle, and the others at the left tip. That helps explain why some people (as stated in the video) believe that Fascism and Nazism should be displayed at the right end of the linear diagram, because all forms of government, except Republic, are basically the same. (In other words, the horseshoe tips are very close together. What a great analogy!) They all end up in the same result: dictatorship in one form or another–anarchy being a dictatorship of one’s own self, i.e., “Nobody else is going to tell me what to do, say or think. I’m my own man/woman/child/whatever!” Ironically, the final form of government will be a dictatorship, and a benevolent one, at that: The Kingdom of God, headed by one Jesus Christ. (Read Romans 14:11, if you don’t believe me.)

    For Arthur Nankervis:

    New Zealanders aren’t a bit like those to our South, some of whom have a sense of humor and are even at times God-fearing, sober and hard working.

    And it should not be forgotten that no nation had more casualties of war per capita than did that of the then proudly ANZAC tradition bound and ANZUS Treaty loyal New Zealanders.

    Until, that is, that once proud nation’s demographics and politics were fataly wounded by the double blows of massive post-war whinging-Pommy-bast**d and other “multi-cultural” immigration and the consequential rapid emmigration of every intact New Zealand man and wholesome woman.

    Every last one of whom is now either an Australian or an American.

    A New Zealander (Keith Park) won the Battle of Britain and also during WW-II, in which there were only officially seventy one British fighter Aces, there were seventy-one, also, from New Zealand.

    And to this day, every time a 737 full if Kiwis lleaves New Zealand for Australia — and lands in Aus? The mean IQ of both places leaps by 50%!

    But those who are still in New Zealand are presisely similar to the great majority of the cold-hearted, mean-spirited, envy-motivated, hatred engined and rage-driven, Earth, Carbon and Euro-peon-fasciSSocialism-worshipping and American-hating folk who populate the essentially insignificant few acres of ice and snow to our North.

  54. Larry,

    Great article! You mention Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest. Why does the left truly embrace the Darwin religion when teaching our children, but when it comes to banking, automobiles, people who spent way more money than they actually had, etc., then we can’t have survival of the fittest; the government must come in and save them. Isn’t it ironic that the left can’t see their own irony???

    Thanks for all your efforts at keeping the conservative movement going (and growing) strong. “Good things come to those who wait, especially if they work while they wait,” which is why I’m certain there is a much larger audience in your future.

    Last, it is so refreshing to come to this post and not have to read through the leftist hate comments in order to get to the conservative opinions and ideas. I’m sure it takes a lot of your time to sift through the garbage they try and post, but we all appreciate it tremendously!

  55. Arthur Nankervis

    For Brian Richard Allen:

    I will not debate on what you write, but I will argue that you have not grasped the relationship that exists between Australia and New Zealand and especially that which binds members of both countries armed services when brought together to serve under the banner of ANZAC. The relationship I speak of allows me to “put shit on any KIWI, knowing full well that I can expect the same in return.” I have served with Kiwis both in a combined combat unit role and with AATTV (OZ and Kiwi advisors) under the American Advisory Group umbrella in Vietnam. As well, when you see or hear personnel from either country (whether they be military or civil) being downright disrespectful toward each other, there is a 99% chance that it is all in jest or just tying to retain the upper-hand and there is not the slightest bit of malice intended or accepted.

    Hope this puts what I wrote into perspective.

  56. Wishbone and Eileen, I forgot to add with the “democracy vs. republic” quotes in the 2/17 posting titled “A Very Broad Agenda” at 8:22 PM an important quote by Engels, the co-author of “The Communist Manifesto”: “Democracy is Socialism.” I guess that says it all!

  57. I think that part of the unwillingness of new commentators to participate in the discussions on NLTZ may be due to the fact that they are lazy.

    While their knowledge in current events may keep them ahead of the liberals on other blog sites, (not a difficult thing to do) the extra time and reasearch or just plain thinking, keeps them away from making any assertions here. I probably fit into this area but, hell, I just like to type.

    We need to gather more like minded conservatives, not just for blogging but to make an impact in Washington. But our numbers are few. We need also to gather Democrats who are dissatisfied with the current state of affairs. (There are some.) We need to gather Independents who think this nation is on the wrong course. Then together unite in a singular voice against those in Washington who are leading our beloved country to socialism.

    As Eileen had mentioned earlier about someone saying, “it was out of their hands.” These are the same people that need to be woke up and slapped. Slapped until they realize it is just that attitude over the last few decades, that has caused today’s problems in our government. People just let things keep sliding by without protest, afraid of standing out from the crowd, or herd if you will. We must make sure that these very same people, that all citizens of America, realize that their “hands” are the government and they control it, not the otherway around.

    I have to take a moment to remember Paul Harvey. When I got home from high school at 2:45 pm in the early 60s, I used to dash to my room and turn on his 15-minute broadcast at 3:00 p.m. He taught me conservatism with his commentaries. He was a great and proud American.

    As you said:

    ” Ironically, the final form of government will be a dictatorship, and a benevolent one, at that: The Kingdom of God, headed by one Jesus Christ. (Read Romans 14:11, if you don’t believe me.)”

    I do believe you, and, this is the only form of New World Order I find acceptable to me.

    Any post with more than one link in it AUTOMATICALLY goes into a Spam file that I have to access. I try to go there as often as possible in order to fish out the good material like yours and to delete the atypical liberal sewage that I get.

    This is a WordPress thing, I try to check it once a day.

    Excellent post and thanks as always,

    For those interested in the topic, an article that appears on RealClearPolitics.com this a.m. shows that the portrayal of “black opinion” by the mainstream media is not 100% accurate. Bill Maxwell, a black man writing from St. Petersburg, gives an adversary opinion to that of the supporters of the “racialism industry.” You can access it directly at http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/columns/article979873.ece. It takes courage for black people to express a contrary opinion. They suffer ostracism that rivals any racism they or their forebears suffered.

  66. noleftturnz

    Margaret,

    So true.

    I consider it to be another facet of the never reported tragedy of “black on black” crime.

    Racism, as we know, is a one way street.

  67. Larry,
    If I ever post another multi-link, I will be sure to give you time to check the spam folder, before I re-post.
    I did notice that some of the links did not come across as planned, but I think some of them are duplicates, anyway.

  68. Larry, another very good one, and the comments as well.

    C-span aired the State of the Black Union yesterday. Of course, $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on were on the panel. Maxine Waters was still the angry black woman.

    Few encouraged personal responsibility. Most were complaining about the huge black population in the prisons, and one said if you are concerned about the criminal justice system, keep your kids out of it.

    One said he would start the 20 Most Wanted on posters, pictures of the governors who refused stimulus funding.

    As Merit and Affirmative Action have always been diametrically opposed concepts, they still want Affirmative Action but will be redefining the definition of Merit, by way of explanation that the solution of one person is not as good as the solution of a group of diversified people. I’ve never known conquest by committee to be a laudable activity.

    Alot of stragegizing to get to the stimulus funding, from the city council, county commission, state legislature and governors.

    While saying they understood why Obama couldn’t pander to them during the campaign, there are alot of hurt feelings and insisting they will hold him responsible.

    Few of the “elite” seem to have a real edge of compassion and understanding for their less fortunate – it sounded like more the same, the king of the hill climb, doing anything to get to the top.

    Larry, I did some typesetting for a local guy who published several books – he had a hard time breaking through, too. I’ll try to reach him and see what suggestions he might have. He published a local conservative weekly for years, had a history in journalism and investigative reporting.

    Sorry the hateful who have no respect or style are making nasty comments about the family.
    I guess they are stuck on stupid and have no valid thought or idea in their entitled minds.

  69. Since we all seem to bite our tongue EVERY time we try to use the words “President” and “Obama” in the same sentence, what do you say we call him:

    SULTAN OBAMA

    The Official full name being:

  71. Stitch,

    The only difference between Obama and Osama is the BS!

    I just saw on MSNBC that in order to make his budget, Obamanation is going to raise the tax on those industries with carbon immissions (energy) and increase the tax on the wealthy. SURPRISE, SURPRISE. MSNBC is taken aback, acting like this is a shock. Where in hell did they think Obama was going to get money, selling those smiling, floppy eared, gold plated, “collectors edition” coins? Hey, he had to get his face on a dollar someway, I guess but it still isn’t green.

    While enviormentalists want us to turn off our lights for an hour, as if that was somehow going to magically cure any misconceived global warming in their want for brains heads, we may realistically be looking at sitting in the dark from sunset till sun-up. The higher cost of heating and lighting will drive the expenses of those luxeries beyond that of the common people. The most powerful nation of earth right up there with North Korea in street lighting.

    I see only one solution for the wealthier citizens of our nation… Do as the Democrats do, not as they say. Simply don’t pay any taxes!

    Is there talk of a book? No need for an agent. Go to Lulu.com, upload your manuscript and voila! you can self-publish. It’s amazingly simple. I self-published a ‘how to’ book, hired a free lancer on the LuLu site to design the cover, my daughter-in-law is an editor so she edited the language and punctuation, but these jobs and correct formatting too can be given over to other free lancers on the LuLu site. Every one of your ‘family’ would buy a copy.
    I order a copy, Lulu prints a copy and mails it to me. You can also link Amazon to your book.
    Good luck, looking forward to your opus, no matter how it gets done.

  73. Windrider – toooooo funny… but true!

    Does anyone really believe there has EVER been a day, when his Royal Princess, Sultan Obama, walked into his living room and said to his family:
    “you know, its just too comfortable in here. How about we all go put sweaters on and turn the thermostat down a bit?”
    ????

    …that lying, son-of-a-….muslim!

    STITCH!

  74. Larry,
    As usual an excellent article and responses from everyone. I do hope you get published as you are that good.
    I also love all the references to your hometown because it is mine as well.
    Thank you St, Louis for the great turnout with your Tea Party! Phoenix had one on Friday but it was a little smaller. Didn’t get much press except for conservative radio of course.
    I have a hard time calling that person President. I usually don’t.
    I know what you mean about the mean spirited liberals on the other blogs. How insulting they are. My mother taught me better. I’ve just about stopped going to other sites. No reason to get all stirred up over their bile and vile talk.

  75. Hear, hear….I think we are all on to something….and share some very meaningful analysis of what is happening.
    I also believe that our Lord places us and everyone in a time and place…to experience what is necessary to bring us all to action.
    I often wonder about the “cast” of players on the stage we are observing. Collectively…. they are the worst this country has experienced and shall cause great harm….unless we all commit and react to our deepest fears…the total destruction of our great country should we decide to remain asleep.
    This cast of characters are all in it together…attained their roles by virtue of no virtues at all, and they shall all go down together….once and for all.
    We have two years to accomplish our goal…to rid our country of this pervasive vermin and collectively we can do it.
    In my guts I know BHO is not a natural born citizen of the U.S. and the truth will come out and when it does it will take him down and all who choose to be complicit. Those who are voting to bankrupt the working class and this country will be voted out of office and convicted of their crimes.

  76. Windrider wrote
    I think that part of the unwillingness of new commentators to participate in the discussions on NLTZ may be due to the fact that they are lazy…>>>>>

    I’ll have to respectfully disagree with you. I think it’s about age; a lot of conservatives are older and have experienced life. But, many are afraid or disinterested in the internet technology my 82 year old father being one of them. He has me to wade through the liberal crap posted on many other conservative sites where the stupid Marxist/socialist seems to dwell. I print out the articles for him to read, and remove the liberal post but keep the best conservative post for him to read.
    My computers (I have 3) are a scary place and I have tried to teach him how to use it but we always end up screaming at each other, so we have come to this silent agreement where I print stuff out for him to become political current. So, it has nothing to do with being lazy. Many from my father’s generation were patriots and volunteered to serve our Country during the low times in American history and some never returned home after serving their Country.

    Many of those patriots were conservatives and as with old time Hollywood were Republicans/Conservatives. I look at the list of Hollywood Conservatives of old and there were many big names who were conservatives and they once out weighed the liberals by a huge margin. Jimmy Stewart, James Cagney, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, John Wayne, John Ford, Gary Cooper, Loretta Young, Charlton Heston, Alan Ladd, Irene Dunne, Carole Lombard, Gene Kelly, Jayne Mansfield and her husband, Mickey Hargitay and Clark Gable. In doing some research about these old Hollywood stars is that most of these people were also very religious and mainly Roman Catholic. In visiting family and friends who live in Southern California I think I counted 10 Catholic churches in 50 mile radius. That shocked me because I always assumed that Hollywood was against religion. As this generation in Hollywood has slowly died out, the liberal pinheads have replaced them.

    So Conservatives in this Country are older and more seasoned and as a general rule love America and stand by their principles by serving in the armed forces to protect our rights of freedom. The Liberals are the younger generation who believe that they are with it and know about nothing much but love to criticize. They have turned a once great Country into a Country of whiners, who whine about anything that comes into their empty heads. They are viewed by the young as being hip, and happening; conservative are viewed as old and bigoted and if you look at the film industry that was once ruled by conservatives and they made films to reflect those ideals, they have been replaced with all the liberal baggage at whatever the latest protest may be, this week it’s gay marriage, who knows what it will be tomorrow.

    I think that if the conservative movement in this Country dies it will be because of the one sided thinking film industry, news and print media just refuse to report facts and rely on opinions of the liberal ideology. But whoever leads the liberal movement they generally take for granted that the young will continue to follow them close to the vest and will always remain there. They get too big from their own britches and take their latest cause du juor too far, wherein they start to lose some of their following and they take on a new conservative viewpoint. I look and listen to those former liberal Hollywood crowds who since 9/11 they were always big believers about our Country and keeping us Free. Dennis Hopper, Jon Voight and Dennis Miller were all once big Hollywood liberals. Both Voight and Hopper spent a decade filming anti-government and anti-conservative films. But the inaction of President Clinton to protect our Country from farther harm which lead us to September 11, 2001 they switched their former liberal beliefs placed them on the back burner and saw how dangerous some of the liberal beliefs were.

    There was something about what Jon Voight said that has stuck with me. He said in an interview why he switched from being a liberal to a conservative. He said he became disillusioned by the liberals during the Clinton administration who he felt lied to every American not just the Lewinsky mess but by campaigning for one thing and doing something else. All the al-Qaeda attacks where only returning message sent was inaction and indifference. He said he felt that those Americans overseas, the Twin Tower incident in 1993, and our Navy personnel on the USS COLE all deserved respect, but were just a footnote by President Clinton. He showed more concern for Princess Diana’s death then he did our troops. With each incident and the lack of reprisal only made them more bolder until he finally decided to send our troops to Mogadishu, Somalia to Operation Gothic Serpent the United States to give support by UNOSOM II against Somali militia fighters loyal to warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid (a Muslim). We all know the real reason why this time it was important to take a stance, the Monica Lewinsky distraction and he’s impeachment hearings were in full swing. He suddenly found his balls but being a Commander in Chief you also need to know military missions and battle plans which were a foreign concept to him as using a condom is as well.

    Our boys were being used by a worthless and corrupt President who had no plan of action and this mission turned into a fiasco. Somali casualty figures are unknown, but American estimates are that between 1,000 and 1,500 Somali militiamen and civilians lost their lives in the battle, with injuries to another 3,000-4,000. However, the International Committee of the Red Cross estimated 200 Somali civilians were killed and several hundred wounded in the fighting. But others estimates more than 700 Somali militiamen dead and more than 1,000 wounded, but the Somali National Alliance in a Frontline documentary on American PBS TV Show acknowledged only 133 killed in the whole battle. Eighteen American soldiers died and 73 were wounded (another American soldier, Delta operator SFC Matt Rierson, was killed in a mortar attack two days later). Among UN forces, one Malaysian soldier died; seven Malaysians and two Pakistanis were wounded.

    I guess for Jon Voight this was a turning point for his lack of support for President Clinton when he realized he was inexperienced with military command and use these men to take the media spotlight off the Lewinsky scandal. The attack on 9/11 sealed the deal for him of the real dangers out there and trying to ignore them will not make them go away. But, that always seems to be the liberal philosophy, to ignore the bad and celebrate the mediocre.

    From the madding Hollywood crowd of today and their sponsorship of the liberal ideology and their coronation of his serene blackness as our Country’s leader to the somewhat free world our Country represents. If and when our Country is attacked there will be more moderator and some liberals who will switch sides and become conservatives I have no doubt. But I think George Clooney, Alec Baldwin, Rosie O’Donnell and Sean Penn will always remain liberal pinheads.

  77. He is crazy read this latest post. He is trying too hard to appear as a “normal” person. But he’s crazy to put himself out there in an open access as a stadium or indoor arena.

    One perk of being President? Courtside seats to see your favorite team play – even when they lose.

    President Obama and Chicago pal Marty Nesbitt joined fans Friday at Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center to cheer on their beloved Bulls, who were ultimately defeated by the Washington Wizards, 113-90.

    Obama’s appearance at the arena – the first by a President for an NBA match in nearly a decade – did not go without notice. His arrival delayed the tipoff by a few minutes, according to the Associated Press.

    And his presence offered a challenge to the home team. As the Wizards’ small forward Caron Butler told the AP: “He truly is a die-hard Bulls fan. Hopefully we can convert him a little bit.”

    The picture that acompanies the article shows him drinking a beer and his usual arrogant relaxed pose. Where is the Secret Service detail, I think this guy will be a hard guy to protect. Does he not get that there may be people out there who don’t like him and being a live tv event could put him in more danger.

  78. Eileen,

    Aw, darn it, you caught me on my own miserable self-editing.

    When I said it may be laziness as the reason for new commentators not to participate in the discussions on NLTZ, I as soon as I submitted I realized I did not clarify as to what I mean’t.

    In no way was I implying age, physical or computer handicapped persons were cause for laziness. That would be ludicrous on my part. What I was referring to was the persons already blogging on other sites. The way I was looking at it as the people seem content with these other sites in bandying about words with liberal no-nothings rather than put forth the extra effort to expand their knowledge base either by reading the articles or commentating. There are people who just love to argue for the sake of it and doing so with liberal retards may give them an ego boost, I don’t know.

    Above all, Eileen, I mean’t your Father no disrespect. My Mother, who’s 83 and is computer literate, reads NLTZ but doesn’t comment. She says that I say everything that she would have said. I know how she feels Larry does that so often in his articles. What he may miss the family will cover also and all still lead to the stimulating ideas and discussions we are all enamored with here on NLTZ.

    While I could be counted in that “aged and exprienced” group, I still look at myself as just a pup. I know that while the lessons life has instilled in me, with God’s grace, more time upon this earth will expand my knowledge even greater.
    When my son was about to graduate highschool, him and I got into some kind of a disagreement. He was seventeen at the time when I told him, “Son, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that I’m old and I’m slow and I don’t know anything. But there’ll come a time, about when you turn twenty-one or so that you’ll realize that your old man wasn’t so old, slow or stupid. That he actually knew what he was talking about.” That didn’t help settle the arguement much that evening but some years later, shortly after my son’s twenty first birthday, he called me and during our gabbing he said, “Hey, dad do remember telling me that I’d realize you weren’t old, slow and stupid?” I said, “Yes, what about it?” He said, “You were right!” I told him then that I was glad that he’d remembered that and happy that he’d realized the difference, then I said, “That’s the good news, want to hear the bad news?” He did and I told him that that these little “revelations” didn’t stop at twenty one years of age. Every five or ten years he was going to look back and say what a dumb-ass I was! That 6 foot, 7 inch, 265 pound boy is the best conservative I’ve got.

    Above politicians, movie stars and media, there can never and will never be a greater influence over one’s life than two loving parents with, and administrating, the right morals and values. It normally is referred to as “common sense” and it becomes stronger as you age.
    I thank the Lord so much for Mother and Father.

    Otherwise, who knows, I may have been some bubbleheaded liberal lying awake at night, tears streaming down my cheeks, in need of group therapy because I’m so stressed out over a salt water harvest mouse!

  79. This guy is so arrogant and a narcissist of the worst kind. Do you think it would ever occur to him…the danger he puts others in by making an appearance at a sporting event….pretending he’s just one of the guys?
    It’s just another symptom of the liberal disease….can’t see past the nosehairs on his face!

  80. Windrider,

    No need to apologies I was never offended by your comment. I just thought it was narrow minded but your elaboration makes sense. BTW I had a similiar conversation with my dad. Wherein I rolled my eyes and said yeah dad, whatever. He told me trying to find employment during the liberals controls would be long and difficult. And it was.

    I’ve got a plan for the salt marsh harvest mouse, I’ll introduce them to Peanut the wonder cat. She loves tormenting the mice when we lived in New Jersey. It was actually funny to watch her take them and throw them up into the air, she would stare at them and if they moved she would ponce on them again and repeat the steps. In Alabama she chases the huge bugs and the lizards that live here. I do believe she sad there are no mice her. I think the snakes dine on them.

  81. Stitch, in case you don’t know it yet, YouTube has removed your video about Obama lying to the troops! (But, they kept the other three videos.)

  83. Eileen, family,

    One other thought on those who blog to other sites may be doing so under the assumption of being conservative. It is possible that they are looking to find a compromsial grounds with a liberal. Although offering arguements to the unreasoning and un-receptive volunteers for brown shirts, the counterfeit conservatives are trying to find some medium in which they can co-exist on the political stage. In short, to be “liked.”
    From the days of The Great Depression up to present times, true conservatives have found it necessary to hold their values ever more tightly and not to marginalize. If you are a conservative you’ll not be liked by a liberal, there is no love loss there.

    While the left’s voice is filled with compromise and capitulation, the true conservative’s voice is one of freedom and liberty.

    Our voice will only grow as tired as we do.

    Never give up. Never give in. And never quit yelling!

    I stand by what I said. You seemed to intimate that New Zealanders are similar to people from land and/or lands to America’s South and I state categorically that they are not. They are, however, collectively and in that they are increasingly universally envious of their superior neighbor , very much like the similarly angry and all-too-often mean-spirited folks to America’s north. To Canadians.

    And I also understand the ANZAC tradition very well. From the perspective of representing one of seven generations of my family, that, beginning with the Maori Wars in New Zealand and through the Boer and/or (depending on where you stood during it and since) “English War,” (which, if I may be so bold and notwithstanding it predates the official creation of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps by a few years, as to suggest actually laid the foundation of the ANZAC Tradition) have served in Australasian Armies, Air Forces and Navies, in every major theater from WW-I, WW-II, K-Force, in the Malayan “Emergency,” in South East Asia and the Mid-East.

  87. Larry,

    I’m a recent reader to your site due to an invite from one of your posters (Eileen I believe) while reading a different blog (Blogs for Victory). I’d like to thank her for her effort and commend NLTZ for their excellent job. Build it and they will come… it may just take a little time. Please continue in your efforts. I’ve not posted anything till now, observing and mostly enjoying others input. I may be inspired to post some in the future, when hopefully I have something worthy to add.

    The main reason for this post (other than thanks) is related to the numerous requests for you to publish a book. I’ve had a recently dealing with a publisher that may be of interest. The book was my son’s. He wrote it as a college project with the possibility of publishing it in the future. As you already know it’s difficult to get picked up by an established publisher and self publishing, while an option, has several down sides.

    After a lot of research and questions (and more research and more questions) he ultimately chose Tate Publishing. They are a Christian based, family owned, main-line publishing organization with a mission to discover and market unknown authors. They helped him thru ever aspect of publishing from editing, cover graphics and design, layout, acquiring ISBN number, copyright protection (you retain all rights), handling legal issues, printing, marketing and working with the one of the largest distributors in the world, Ingram / Spring Arbor (they only accept works from certain publishers). Plus they pay one of the highest royalties I’ve seen from a publisher (it initially surprised me how little most publishers pay in royalties, especially to new writers).

    The process took longer than I expected but their employees were diligent and expedient. They assign you an account rep who works with you thru each step of the process even though other departments handle different aspects of the book. Once the book was ready it was immediately available on Amazon and in Barnes & Noble, Borders, Wal-Mart etc…

    In addition, they produced an audio book of his material. They provide 4 or 5 sample readings from various speakers and allow you to chose which you thought had the best voice / style for you work. This is something we hadn’t thought about and is significant to seeing impaired and people who enjoy listening to books while traveling.

    There was an initial fee for their service that’s reimbursed after a certain number of books are sold. My son weighed that against the cost of self publishing and self distribution and handling all of the other responsibilities for preparing and marketing a book and realized his personal effort couldn’t reach anywhere near as many people. Should you have a second book they accept to publish, the initial fee paid covers that book as well.

    Tate also helped him setup book signings at some of the local area book stores and provided him with posters and book marks for marketing. His book is currently being utilized by several colleges and other organizations. Part of that is his own effort but Tate helped along the way.

    I don’t know if this publisher fits your needs but they might be of interest to check out.

    I’ve been using numbersusa.com for quite some time now. I fax everybody and phone them as well. Unless they see “numbers”, the slugs in Washington don’t move at all. I can get my faxes sent through numbersusa.com but there are some other sites that won’t allow me to send anything. The error alert claims it is a problem with MSN and I need to update. I don’t believe that since everything is up to date. Several of my other “activist” friends are having the same problems. As a matter of fact I couldn’t put a comment on noleftturnsz for quite a while and then I “changed” my name . I may have aggravated some of the lying sacks of weasels we have in this country. Oh well, that’s what some of us do so well.

  91. http://www.numbersusa.com I constantly use them and I will be using them again today. I’m calling out Alabama’s Senator Richard Shelby for his addition to this Omnibus Bill and the Southern BBQ to study catfish? I don’t wanna pay or force the rest of America to pay for the study of Catfish DNA. I’m embarrassed that he would even contemplate places anything listed in this most recent Pork infested Bill. He has been extremely vocal over the Democrats over and unnecessary spending over the last year, but if he signs onto this that makes him no better then the Democrats. So both Senator’s Shelby and Sessions will be hearing my outrage over this 800,000.00 plus special interest projects. I welcome all of you to follow suit and contact them and all these law makers. Let them hear our rage, angry and disgust over all this government septic tank known as the United States 111th Congress. And if they sign their name on this Bill, there will be a movement to remove them from Office. Sign at your will but redemption will be felt.

    I cannot remember a time in History where the American taxpayers have gotten so involved with United States politics. You go to a store and/or a restaurant and every one is angry and talking about this non-stimulus Stimulus Economy Package. In the late 60’s and all of the 70’s the liberals protested and complained about policies and the Vietnam conflict (I won’t call it a War because Congress refused to call it that. I guess the Congress felt the word War was so negative, Conflict is much more positive.) But, right now conservatives, moderates and some liberals are all outraged.

    It’s clear that our liberal lawmakers want to keep us occupied and distracted with the Rush Limbaugh vs Michael Steele debate over nothing, and the made up war of words between Nancy Pelosi and Sultan Obama. I guess they believe all of America is as stupid as the liberals to fall for their nonsense and we are not. It’s another attempt by the liberals to divert our attention from their shenanigans. I don’t know why, because most people I know aren’t buying this liberal trick. We know they love to declare war on Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. They want us to stop listening and watching to them because they all have got their number and know the liberal strategic moves. It’s actually quite dumb to focus on Rush Limbaugh instead of having current listeners leave, he is acquiring new listeners. This is similar to the attacks by the Jewish community over the Passion of the Christ film. They attacked it without ever seeing it because they were trying so hard to label it anti-Semitic and all they ended up doing was driving the curious to see the film. Mel Gibson really didn’t have a huge budget and not much money was available for promotion and marketing the film. The press, the liberal press especially helped the marketing and drove more and more people to see the film. They are now doing the same thing with Rush and his listeners are coming like flies to sugar. They obviously forgot that it didn’t work last time. What did Albert Einstein say… Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That’s our Congress and the liberal philosophy.

    LadyWolf, many of the other site want money to send the fax. I’ve tried to use them and they say they don’t charge but still want a credit card number to verify who you are. So, I avoid them at all costs. numbersusa doesn’t demand any form of payment, they would like a donation every now and then, but they don’t demand a donation.

  92. Thanks Family, for all you do to keep the flame of “Pride of Self'” burning.. thanks to my Dad and Mum for their example(s)..(he often worked three jobs to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads (tho’ that sometimes leaked).. seven kids wasn’t easy, and we often do not realize what a ‘backbone’ it took to live the independence necessary to maintain that ‘Pride of Self’… I am now 73, have never earned more that 12 – 15 thousand per year (and only a few years at that), but have never taken a food stamp, welfare payment, or visited a food bank (other than ONE day after my wife and I lost our self-built log home to a fire (uninsured)), have rebuilt (another log home)… and the “support” we received came in amounts large and small from Neighbors, Relatives, and Friends (and even some who have never met us).. NOT the Benevolent Big G… we are attempting to slowly repay with funds, and acts of “paying Forward” as time and $$ permit. This is where the truly sincere help comes from… the Community, and others who KNOW what you represent in character… not some pencil-pusher in a far-off land who knows naught of WHAT you are!

    Thanks to each of you for your dedication to the Truth as WE KNOW it!

    And many thanks for the links/mentions of other interesting Conservative sites… only have ‘dial-up’, so they save a lot of ‘search-time’.

    It is sunny here today, so smile!
