I received a comment about the previous post that seemed to be reading too much into the last post with regard to the wording in the first principal - America is good.

Let me be clear about this - first - I copied the list from the Glenn Beck website to share his information about the 9/12 Project with ya'll. Second, I do believe that in general America is good. I do not have blind faith in or worship the American government or any politicians whatsoever!!

I believe in the principals this country was built on and am grateful that I live in a country that allows me to express my opinion without fear of arrest or public flogging for disagreeing with Obama. I am grateful that I live in a country that allows me to worship Jesus Christ and does not force me to follow something else. My worship is reserved for my Father in Heaven - not for men, government or possessions. I have tried to keep this blog less about religion and more about the direction our country is taking. I know that not everyone shares my faith in Jesus, but all that live in America are effected by the American Government. That is what this blog is about.

People that have been following this blog know that I have been pulling my hair out about our government and are not likely to think I have blind faith in the government or America - but perhaps new people might think otherwise. Sooo, I just wanted to make sure that my position is clear for everyone reading. I promise to try and be more cognizant that not everyone has read more than the most recent post.

I am waiting to hear from the Glenn beck staff about starting a 912 Project group in my area. For those not familiar, the 9/12 project was founded by Glenn Beck.

Nine stands for the 9 principals we agree to stand on:
1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson

There are Twelve VALUES we share:
The 12 Values
* Honesty
* Reverence
* Hope
* Thrift
* Humility
* Charity
* Sincerity
* Moderation
* Hard Work
* Courage
* Personal Responsibility
* Gratitude

People across the country are coming together to unite and say ENOUGH! If you agree with these principles and values, join me in this fight and start a group in your area. This can be achieved through the Glenn Beck website.

The Dems have gained control by beating the pavement and recruiting people not wise enough to see the lunacy being force fed to the American public. It is up to us to take counter measures and fight for our country.

Texas Tea Parties!!

YEEEHAAAW! People in Denton, Texas are mad as hell and still polite as they can be about it!! The Tea Party in Denton was a huge success as were the other Tea Parties across the country! I wanted to share my photos with ya'll and encourage you to check around to see if any other events are popping up. I am aware that there may be a second protest in Sherman, Texas on the 4TH of July. Check out what was happening in Denton on tax day.

On tax day the Department of Homeland Security issued a report about terrorist activity in the US: however, the terrorists that Janet Nepolitano was referring to include: opponents of ILLEGAL immigration, abortion opponents and VETERANS!! Of course, she has since issued an insincere apology. That makes it okay...

WOW! I am a terrorist under the DHS definition!

Does this mean they are TERRIFIED? of US??


Plus, The LA Times categorized Tea Party participants as "STEEPED IN INSANITY"; the Washington Post called us "nutjobs" and a CNN remote correspondant covering the Chicago Tea Party said that it was "not family viewing" and threw it back to NY because she was being called out on her refusal to allow a man to finish his sentence when asked why he was there and the issue of her arguing the Obama talking points with they guy. Since when do "reporters" argue with the man on the street??

I just consider the source of the name calling and - you know - it encourages me!! It means that they are unable to keep ignoring us and are afraid that we may succeed in drawing attention to the REAL insanity. People that have not been paying attention are starting to notice the problems and the runaway train of irresponsible spending. People are starting to notice that Congress is trying to side step the Constitution in their attempt to federalize EVERYTHING.

Why is removing tattoos on LA gang members a federal taxpayer responsibility??

How did smelly pigs in Iowa become the responsibility of Texas and Tennessee??

Why is Georgia expected to pay for the Miami Orange Bowl parking upgrade??

How did Virginia and Maryland get put on the hook for a museum dedicated to the mafia??

Check around your community for events and groups organizing to fight the shift to socialism and the federal take over issues granted to the States by the CONSTITUTION.

Email me with any pics from other Tea Parties and info of future events!

I know I have been gone awhile... Honestly, I am so sickened by the news and the state of our country that I have quit watching any news and have avoided any media that I know will just give me a headache and thoroughly tee me off. This all has me so disgusted and upset that I had to just stop paying attention - I feel so helpless - at least until the next ELECTION when we can serve Obama with an eviction notice!

It is time for the TEA PARTIES!! I encourage everyone to put in an appearance at the nearest TEA PARTY. I am a government employee and our local one is during office hours; sooo, several co-workers and myself are marching to another nearby county having one after work to protest BAILOUTS, HIGHER TAXES and FISCAL IRRESPONSIBILY!! I will be on the Denton, Texas townsquare, Wednesday, April 15 as an angry taxpayer!! I hope some of you can join us in Denton or another TEA PARTY close to where you live!

I will post pictures and hopefully there will be a grand turnout! The weather in Denton is predicted to be excellent for a TEXAS TEA PARTY!!

If you are not aware of any TEA PARTIES close to you, check out this website.

To the right of the screen will be an option to click your state and they have a list of confirmed TEA PARTIES. If you are able to go, take your camera and post pictures of actual taxpayers that are angry and fed up with this out of control Congress! We are fed up with Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Chris Dodd and Barack Obama. I am also fed up with ALL members of Congress that voted for these BAILOUTS without actually reading the bills!! And I am fed up with Republicans that dropped the ball when they ahd the power to do something! They all stink and they should hear about it!!

Let's get out there and show Congress where WE THE PEOPLE, THE TAXPAYERS stand!!

Well I was going to rant about this, but...

"Obama Administration Considers Requiring Veterans To Use Private Health Insurance For Coverage Of Service-Related Injuries"

This is what I fully intended to vent about this PM, but when I logged in I found this...

"Obama Drops Controversial Third-Party Billing Proposal for Veterans"

It sure did not take Obama long to figure out he was making a huge mistake asking veterans to pay for their own insurance to cover military service related injuries once they returned home. Thank God he came to his senses on this one - at least for now. Don't assume he is not going to bring it back up later.

What I can not wrap my brain around is that OBAMA wanted to stop paying for medical for the vets, but wants to keep handing out BILLIONS of dollars in corporate BAILOUTS. I thought he was supposed to be about the people and not about big business... Isn't this what the Dems are always saying about the Republicans... that they are controlled by big business?? Besides I thought Obama wanted to pay for EVERY BODY'S medical. This guy keeps talking out both sides of his mouth and does not seem to grasp that some of us remember news items and policy decisions from one day to the next.

I have tried to give Obama the benefit of the doubt. I did not vote for him. I never thought he would be a good president, but I truly hoped that I would be pleasantly surprised by him; unfortunately this has not been the case.

OBAMA is an incompetent boob!! Yes, I finally said it!! BOOB, BOOB, BOOB - Obama is a boob!! How this moron ever managed to fool so many people during the election is entirely beyond me. He is incredibly inexperienced and clearly has no understanding about finance, world affairs (did you hear about the cheesy dollar store DVDs he gave to a head of state and embarrassed the country) or real people.

Even the Obama cheer team is losing faith. His approval rating are dropping. according to Rasmussen the people that "strongly approve" is dropping and the people that "strongly disapprove" is rising. Strangely, he is still winning the approval of the majority of Americans. I don't get it but it appears that he is going to enjoy his free pass for a while longer, but things are already unraveling - when it actually falls completely apart, what are they going to say then???

I told them so...

"Livid Democrats demand AIG return bailout bonuses"

"Obama assails AIG bonuses as misuse of tax funds"

"Geithner Vows to Recoup AIG Bonuses as Lawmakers Express Fury"

What did they think was going to happen when they pushed that sucker through before anybody could read it or look into any aspect of it??

I am completely perplexed at the response of the Congress. I have said it before, but a person does not have to have an MBA to see that this strategy of blindly throwing money at failing companies is the most moronic, irresponsible thing they could possibly have done.

When my children ask permission to do something, I ask questions and require a 48 hour window between the request and the event to allow time to look into what it is they want to do. I may just be an ignoramous in the eyes of Congress, but my house and cars will be paid in full within 3 years and all my credit cards are already paid in full and have been for quite a while. My husband and I will be completely debt free before I am 45 years old. My children are not doing drugs and spend their time with smart kids with nice parents. I am not in denial or blind to my children's doings - I am diligent in verifying and checking up on things. In my opinion Congress could take a lesson from every good mother in the US.

Congress has pushed through bill after bill amounting to roughly $2,063,800,000,000 in the first 50 DAYS (not months or years - DAYS) of this administration without taking any time to research a damn thing because Nancy Pelosi was in a hurry to go to Rome.

Was this the kind of change that people were hoping for??

Well, well, well

Obama Says Administration Will Try to Block AIG Bonuses
President Obama says AIG's plan to pay out $165 million in bonuses is "hard to understand."

What the hell took so long??

AIG is FINALLY going to be facing a criminal investigation. Still not by the Attorney General of the United States, but by NY AG Andrew Cuomo. Hey, at least there will FINALLY be a criminal investigation...

All I can say is.. IT'S ABOUT TIME!! I have been calling for this for quite a while. Maybe if they opened an investigation sooner they could have save the TAXPAYERS some bucks.

I just hope it does not stop with AIG! There are too many big businesses handing out huge bonuses for executives running failing businesses.

Here is what Liddy (AIG CEO) had to say in defense of this BS. "I do not like these arrangements and find it distasteful and difficult to recommend to you that we must proceed with them...Honouring contractual commitments is at the heart of what we do in the insurance business. "

Hmmm. Not really impressed since we the taxpayers are paying for this crap when I am working through Spring Break and can't take my family on a vacation.

Saturday, March 7, 2009


Have you noticed how frequent Obama says the word "crisis" when speaking about the current state of the economy?

During the election, Democrats accused Republicans of "fear mongering" in reference to the Republican position that they were the best choice when it comes to Homeland Security issues. Frankly, NO ONE is dealing with Homeland security - our southern border is wide open and the whole world knows it. I believe that the Dems are also "fear mongering". Everytime Obama, Pelosi or any high ranking Dem steps in front of the podium, they are pushing for some big spending bill to save us from the financial "crisis" we are facing. Everytime they do, the market drops even more. Everytime they talk about the dire straits of the market, people are holding tighter and tighter on their wallets.

The Dems are using the financial problems as an excuse to obtain taxpayer money for every pet project they ever dreamed of and they are scaring people into going along with them. They have actually convinced people across the country that the only way to save the country from economic failure is for the Feds to swoop in and "rescue" us.

It is a load of crap!!

There is another way. If the DOJ would go in and break up all the HUMONGOUS corporations, there would be room in the market for independant business' to grow and thrive. I can not just go out an open a grocery store in Texas - I could not compete with Walmart, Albertsons or other large chains. They have been allowed to grow so big that they would kill me in advertising and their ability to buy in larger quantities allows them to purchase products at a discounted rate that a small independant can not.

If the Justice Department would break up the large corporations this would impriove the economy in two ways. First, the independants could rise up again and survive in the market. Second, it would prevent the economy from becoming so dependant on certain businesses for survival. If Ford were a much smaller company and went belly up, the nation would not be devastated. If AIG was a small business, instead of the huge boil on the country's a$$ that it really is, we would not feel any obligation to BAIL THEM OUT four or five times in a six month time period.

Our system, as originally intended, would have been great!! However, companies have been allowed to grow so big that the entire economy rests on a handful of businesses.

I say BREAK THEM UP. Make Walmart sell off the majority of stores. Make AIG split into different businesses - they are into a boatload of different enterprises. Split them up!! The failing parts will die off, the better parts will continue on. There will be opportunity for more individuals to prosper, more businesses to rise up and all the money in the country would not be in the hands of 4% of the people.

Don't let the Dems scare you into a socialist system of governement. The more control we hand over to the politicians, the more control they have over our lives!!

Monday, March 2, 2009

Are you guys watching this???

AIG is asking for more money again!!!


Has anybody else noticed that every time another BAILOUT is announced the market drops to new and exciting lows? The DOW has dropped to below 7000 after the AIG announcement this AM. Every attempt of Big Brother to fix things, they get worse.

It is mind boggling to me that Washington seems oblivious to the pattern of:
give AIG money, the market tanks, give them some more money, the market drops some more, give them MORE money, the market just keeps on dropping, so ... let's give them SOME MORE MONEY.

I have said this before, but this saying applies to so many things: you can't keep pulling peanut butter and jelly out of the cabinet and expect a ham sandwich to pop out of the mix. IF WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS NOT WORKING - DO SOMETHING ELSE!!

It reminds me of those women that wonder why they never have a relationship with a man that works, but they keep going out with the same kind of guy. You know, married, met him in a bar, whatever...

It has gotten so ridiculous that I am not even going to bash on AIG. Hey, why walk away from a good thing? Every time AIG CEO Liddy holds out his little hand, the Feds fill it with more cash. Why would AIG stop doing what they are doing??? Everyday is Christmas at AIG!!

I thought Obama was going to save us from the Bush administration. So far his administration is such a colossal disaster that I cannot see him lasting for a second term. The probelm is that he can do a hell of a lot of damage before he goes.

This is precisely why I am opposed to government run health care. If they take over, half the country will probably die within 24 months. So unless we can arrange for that half to include the least reasonable and least responsible people of society...

I am too young for high blood pressure, but...

Holy Cow!!
(a) insane
(b) ignorant
(c) a psychopath
(d) the devil

I don't know which. I don't really think he is Satan, but I am convinced that he is either very ignorant or completely delusional.

Did you see his speech to Congress?? He actually said that he is "proud that we passed a recovery plan free of earmarks". WHAT??? WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS KIDDING?? The "recovery" (BAILOUT) plan has an earmark for $200K for - get this - TATTOO REMOVAL! Just whose tattoos are we removing and why are the taxpayers paying for it?? Was somebody tattooed against his or her will??? I always thought that tattoos are expensive and that people got them because they wanted them.

More distubing than the tattooo removal, is that OBAMA said his incredible spending bill was free of these earmarks that actually make up about 2/3 of the bill. If he actually believes this then he is dumber than Democrats ever thought Bush was ... or he is a PATHOLOGICAL LIAR.

To stand in front of Congress and blatantly say something so fundamentaly untrue is beyond me. It reminds me of Clinton denying he "had sex with that woman" and asked for a "definition" of the work sex. The fact that he asked for the definition should have been response enough for anybody to see that he had, in my opinion.

I must say that Obama is not as good at it as others I have seen. Good liars make it sound enough like truth to avoid any question - Obama's claim is so incredible that it defies all logic that ANYBODY would believe there are no earmarks in that ENORMOUS SPENDING BAILOUT. He doesn't even bother to make it sound true. His MO is to make it sound so good people WANT it to be true.

College for everybody!! Cure for Cancer!! Free health care for everybody!! Fix Social Security!! WEEEE... It all sounds great on the surface, but is absurd and unrealistic.

It is so ridiculous that even as angry as I am, I laughed when I heard him say it and (Thank God for DVD) had to replay it. Will anybody notice?? When will the disciples realize that he is selling snake oil?

The only other alternative is that he does not know how to define "earmark". Perhaps someone should tell him...

Monday, February 23, 2009

LMAO, buit its really not that funny!!

I have been so frustrated that I have actually been avoiding the news lately. I know that I should keep up with what the leadership of this country is doing, but I am so disgusted that I can not stand anymore.

However, I almost spit Diet Coke all over my compluter when I saw this:

"Urging future restraint even as current spending soars, President Barack Obama pledged on Monday to dramatically slash the skyrocketing annual budget deficit as he started to dole out the record $787 billion economic stimulus package he signed last week....The president also said he would reinstitute a rule that the government pay as it goes, rather than racking up debt, and he sought to prepare people for "tough choices" in years to come. He called the long-term solvency of Social Security "the single most pressing fiscal challenge we face by far" and said reforming health care, including burgeoning entitlement programs, is a huge priority."

Its funny that he sees Social Security as a "pressing" issue now, after the dems fought so hard to stop President Bush from trying to deal with Social Security when he was President.

I am dying to know when the President is going to impliment his "pay as you go" policy?? Seeing as he just signed the BIGGEST SPENDING BILL IN HISTORY and points to the debt he inherited from the previous administration.

Does anybody see any possible way for him to halve the national debt?? My degree is in an unrelated field, so maybe I am missing a part of the plan... REALLY! ANYBODY THAT CAN HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS DOING, HELP ME OUT HERE!!

Saturday, February 14, 2009

Don't even know where to start...

Wow! This week has been full of mind-blowing, blood pressure raising headlines.

"Stimulus Heads to President"
"Peanut processor files for bankruptcy"
"Burris Says Blago Asked for Cash"
"Octuplet Mom Nadya Suleman On Food Stamps, Three Kids Receive Disability"
"Octuplet Mom Nadya Suleman Launches Website For Donations"
"Dad at 13, Boy Alfie Patten, 13, becomes father of baby girl"
"SURPRISE! Dems Break Promise: Stimulus Bill to Floor Friday"

The only story above that is not in America is the 13 year old father... It appears that this child and the child mother, both have supportive families and that while incredibly tragic that these two children have forsaken their own childhood, they are trying to not compound one mistake with more.

The woman that deliberately has conceived 14 children that she in incapable of supporting and taking care of is clearly unstable and mentally OFF. The doctor that helped to do this should be held financially liable for the care of these children. He and this crazy woman have taken IRRESPONSIBILITY to a whole new level. They may not have broken any laws, but this is easily the most thoughtless and selfish thing I have ever heard. Why should the taxpayers be on the hook for this? My biggest question is how did she PAY for the implantation of these embryos. I have had friends that sought fertility treatment and it is not cheap and it is a voluntary medical procedure - not usually covered by medicaid or whatever California welfare medical plan is available.

How about Nancy Pelosi and the Dems promise to allow 48 hours for Congress to review the bill, then breaking the promise because Pelosi was leaving for ROME?? No one, not even the DEMS had a chance to read the 1,071 pages on the largest spending bill in American history. The package includes $308.3 billion in new spending, $267 billion for social services, and $212 billion for tax breaks. Most pundits are in agreement that when they force something through this fast - there is something in it they don't want us to know about before it is signed. My position is that in this case, we already know the worst, but they know that the longer it is scrutinized, the more opposition surfaces - even within their own ranks. Dems were beginning to change their votes and public opinion was rapidly shifting to the conservative.

Senator Burris, IL - has now confirmed that Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich asked Burris through a third party, Blago's brother, for $10,000. This would have been important to know BEFORE Burris was confirmed. Seems a bit disingenuous of Burris to bring it out NOW.

NO MORE PEANUT BUTTER! Man, it is a sad, sad day in America when a PBJ can be a deadly weapon!! The people that caused all this sickness and death by allowing salmonella tainted peanuts and peanut products to be shipped and used in food have filed for bankruptcy protection from lawsuits and creditors. Too bad for them, they cannot get the same protection from the criminal charges most certainly coming down the pipe. I hope they are charged with murder in the death cases. There are different options, but a 1ST degree murder charge is appropriate. HOW GREEDY DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO ALLOW POISONOUS FOOD TO BE SERVED TO CHILDREN?? Face it, who is the largest consumer of peanut butter?? KIDS! The person or people responsible deserve to spend the rest of their lives in prison or if eligible, the death penalty. Can they be tried in TEXAS?

I have noticed a pattern in most of these BAD BEHAVIOR headlines. Most of this BAD BEHAVIOR is rooted in selfishness. Congress is not thinking about what is best for this country - if they were they would not be spending us into the Twilight Zone and trying to convince us that it is going to stimulate the economy. Every time they inched closer to this atrocity, the DOW plummeted. Every time Obama speaks publicly about this BAILOUT, public opinion sinks lower and lower.

The crazy Octuplet Mom wanted these children since she was a child herself, so she had them. She shows no concern about how she is going to care for and pay for raising these babies. She was already receiving welfare benefits. She did not care about paying for them because she figured that the taxpayers would pick up the bill. Even with welfare benefits, these babies are all going to be in high school at the same time, going to prom, graduating, preparing for college at the same time. What is she going to tell her FOURTEEN kids at Christmas?? She does not mind being a burden to her parents or the taxpayers, she wanted fourteen children - so she had fourteen children! No worries - logistics be damned!!

I am getting sicker by the day about the state of this country. No one is responsible, half the country wants the government to swoop in and save the day and appears completely blind to the fact that abdicating our responsibility is also abdicating our freedom and independence. Look around people!! When you become dependant - you are no longer INDEPENDENT!!

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Hooray, some sanity emerging!!! And some NOT!

I saw a report today that the FBI is investigating multiple businesses that have been recipiants of the BAILOUT money!! It seems that they have been investigating for a while, but it escaped my attention - probably because I have been too lightheaded over the astronomical amounts of OUR money that Congress is giving away!! I cannot wait for the arrests to begin!!!

Now for the insanity: Earlier this week, Senator Chuck Schumer had this to say, "For the first time, New Yorkers can feel proud and walk tall, because the federal government is coming to our aid." Yeah, New York, you blew it and so we the taxpayers are BAILING YOU OUT - feel proud!! Since when is a BAILOUT something ANYBODY should feel proud of needing??

He also had this to say in the interim when the BAILOUT was being debated, "...and let me say this, to all the chattering class - so much focuses on those little, tiny - yes, porky amendments - the American people really don't care..."

Notice those words - little and tiny - he is referring to the $886,000 for the Frisbee Golf Park in Austin, the $500,000 for a dog park in California, the $50 MILLION for a Mob Museum in Las Vegas - you know these tiny items.

It also includes these items on the wish list published by the Wall Street Journal:
A wish list that is 11,391 projects strong! What vital infrastructure projects would cash-strapped taxpayers get for their $73 billion? Here's a sampling:

- Hercules, Calif., wants $2.5 million in hard-earned taxpayer money for a "Waterfront Duck Pond Park," and another $200,000 for a dog park.

- Euless, Texas, wants $15 million for the Midway Park Family Life Center, which, you'll be glad to note, includes both a senior center and aquatic facility. (Hey, at least it is for PEOPLE, not ducks and dogs!)

- Natchez, Miss., "needs" a new $9.5 million sports complex "which would allow our city to host major regional and national sports tournaments."

- Henderson, Nev., is asking for $20 million to help "develop a 60 acre multi-use sports field complex."

- Brigham City, Utah, wants $15 million for a sports park.

- Arlington, Texas, needs $4 million to expand its tennis center. (Arlington should just get Jerry Jones to pay for this, since it is no big deal...)

- Miami, Fla., needs $15 million for a "Moore Park Community Center, Tennis Center and Day Care" facility. The city is also desperate for $3.6 million to build a covered basketball court and a new tennis court at Robert King High Park. Then there's the $94 million Orange Bowl parking garage you are being asked to pay for.

- La Porte, Texas, wants $7.6 million for a "Life Style Center." (What the Hell is a Life Style Center??

- Oakland, Calif., needs $1 million for Fruitvale Latino Cultural and Performing Arts Center.

I am not sure what angers me the most... Chuck Schumer referring to these millions of taxpayer dollars as "little" and "tiny" or the bureaucrats coming out of the woodwork with their grubby little hands out begging for US to pay for their pet projects.

Schumer's comments are sooo indicative of the attitude in DC about money. To them, a few million here and a few million there is completely insignificant.

To US - the people paying the bill, it is a very big deal.
And Chuck, I DO CARE and I am watching you!

Saturday, February 7, 2009

OK this is just plain wrong...

When I signed off a few minutes ago this is the first headline I saw:

Senate Finally Gets Stimulated

no longer LAMO

Was anybody watching Obama a couple of nights ago addressing the Dems about this BAILOUT or as the media have dubbed it - the "SPENDULOUS BILL"? It was excrutiating!! He is actually defending the 9 and 10 figure doling out for pet projects, such as - the MOB MUSEUM - yes, as in John Gotti, Al Capone - Mob, more money for ACORN (whom you may remember from the election committing voter fraud - of course I have heard nothing about prosecution in any of those instances!) and a Frisbee Golf Park. Obama said this, "The scale and scope of this plan is right." The scale is a whopping $800,000,000,000 of taxpayer money. The scope is bailout money plus crazy pet projects thrown in to supposedly create jobs. I volunteer to work at the Frisbee Golf Park!! There is more spending for pork in this bill than so-called stimulus and it is an absolute outrage.

The only thing that does make me laugh (just a little) is that they are killing a rainforrest with the sheer size of the Democrats proposed bill. It is 647 pages and weighs about seven pounds according to one journalist. Each congressman/woman gets a copy. Not that this is actually funny, but I have to wonder, where is the "Global Warming" crowd while this is going on? In the interest of saving the earth, I propose that Congress not print these anymore and just use a download on the Congrssional Laptops. Additionally, the media and whoever else gets copies should receive electronic versions as well.

It is going to pass thanks to YANKEE RINOS - Arlen Spector from PA and Susan Collins of Maine. They have sided with the Dems. I wonder how much payoff money is going to their states.

ATTENTION MICHAEL STEELE: As long as you are cleaning house and making radical changes to the party, let me share this insight with you as a voter, taxpayer and average citizen.
1. Supreme Court Justices with liberal agendas!!
2. Amnesty for ILLEGAL immigrants - we have laws for a reason, duh!
3. Spending like you have a money tree growing behind Capitol Hill- you don't!
4. Elected Republicans sitting on their ass doing nothing - when they had power before, they did nothing with it!!
What we DO want is:
1. Conservative Supreme Court Justices that will protect the sanctity of life and the Spirit of the Constitution
2. Responsible spending - remember that it is somebody else's money that ya'll have a duty to protect and use appropriately
3. Elected Republicans that will follow through with a conservative agenda!

I am so disgusted with the whole mess that this AM, my husband and I actually discussed the possibility of moving out of the country, not like Alec Baldwin and Robert Redford when they threatened to move and then didn't. We are actually considering our options.

I love my country. My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and the War with Mexico. Two of them may have died at the Alamo - we have been unable to confirm this yet. But my point is that I do not take the idea of leaving lightly - THIS IS MY COUNTRY - THIS IS MY HOME - I AM AN AMERICAN AND A TEXAN, but my home is being hijacked by a bunch of lunatics and WE THE PEOPLE seem powerless to stop them.

No one worth a darn wants to run for office in this country anymore because the Congress is so corrupt and wildly out of touch with reality and the people that no sane, rational or respectable person wants to be affiliated with them. Meanwhile, they (the lunatics) sit on Capitol Hill and laugh because they know it is true.

I have to add a short commentary about the comment made by President Obama about Rush Limbaugh, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." The comment was made during a discussion about the BAILOUT - the latest in a long string of BAILOUTS.

Rush has managed to irritate and anger every liberal out there! They are totally getting their panties in a wad! For this reason, he is my hero!! I do not agree with Rush on every issue (in particular his position that he hopes Obama fails)and honestly I get a little tired of him constantly patting himself on the back, but he really can get the Dems in an uproar!! I think that we should all tune in and turn it UP!!! GO RUSH, GO!!

The first 11 Days

Well I can honestly say that I am not surprised about the events of the last week and a half. Obama has chosen a tax evader for the Secretary of the Treasury, allowed the Dems to add billions of taxpayer money in pork to the BAILOUT, continues to be an enabler to the corrupt practices of Wall Street and the big banks. is funding overseas abortions and has picked Tom Daschle (another tax evader) to head up the Department of Health and Human Services.

About the only thing I agree with Obama is the Superbowl. I am a lifelong STEELERS supporter and I am going to be cheering on my boys tomorrow night (Sorry, if you are a Cardinals fan!)!!

I am convinced that the STEELERS can hear me cheering all the way from Texas and it is my constant support and thirty years of LOVE that got them into the Superbowl!! Hey, a girl can dream, can't I ??

This is how I am coping with the the change of leadership - FOOTBALL - completely submersing my brain into something other than politics and finance; (I grew up in Odessa, Texas - the home of the Permian Panthers and the world famous Ratliff Stadium. Yes, we are football fanatics, but NO, Odessa is not the wide spot in the road full of ignorant rednecks portrayed in Friday Night Lights. Some of those rednecks are quite intelligent.) I am, however, wondering what will I do after the game?? There will be seven (count them, s-e-v-e-n) LONG months until next season. Don't get me wrong... I am completely grateful for the prolonged STEELERS season this year. But what about the next seven months? I guess I will just have to toughen up and deal.

There is a light in the headlines this week (besides the upcoming STEELERS big win this weekend). The GOP chose Michael Steele as the new Republican Party Chairman. I had posted about Michael Steele several months ago. On November 14, 2008, I posted these comments about him as someone to watch as a future GOP leader.

"Former MD LT Gov MICHAEL STEELE: VERY ACCOMPLISHED AND IMPRESSIVE.He obtained his undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins and his JD at Georgetown University. Steele considered the priesthood and spent three years in seminary, but decided on a career in law before taking the vows. I heard Michael Steele this morning on FOX NEWS, I like what I am hearing from him. He said that Republicans do not have to become more like the Democrats to regain the trust of the Conservatives - they have to "get their act together and get back to the values, roots and principals of the Republican Party." He said that those that think they should move to the left are welcome to join the Democratic Party." I couldn't agree with him more!!

I think this is a step in the RIGHT direction for the party and is exactly what we need to rally the Conservative base. John McCain was too wishy-washy and too tight with Ted Kennedy in my view. Steele is someone that expresses the position that he is not willing to compromise his conservative values in an effort to become more palateable to the left. I used the phrase "Expressed" because obviously only time will tell if he is REALLY willing to follow through. I can not speak for everyone, but this is precisely what I want in party leadership, someone willing to take the heat and do what is right anyway.

Now if we can just convince SARAH to run in 2012, we will be all set!!

OKAY, these just made me laugh

These headlines appeared tonight on Fox News:

"Obama Tells Republicans to Quit Listening to Limbaugh" Duh! I cannot imagine why he does not like Rush!!

"Wal-Mart Worker Accused of Rolling Back Prices" Of course, they are rolling back prices, I thought that was their JOB.

...and this gem:

"Blago Hires Same PR Firm as Drew Peterson"
You know what a great job they did for Peterson! LOL

This nice one was on

"Urgent action needed on economy, Obama says" Duh!! Glad he noticed; I thought he was too busy with his abortion agenda.

The winner of the Grand Pubaa Prize is this advertisement on check this out:

If this does not exemplify what Bill O'Reilly has been saying for years about media bias, I don't know what does.

Just had to share a laugh!!

My blood pressure is SKY HIGH

I was really hoping to be pleasantly surprised by Obama; however, he is clearly living up to the pre-election expectations. This was on the AP yesterday:

"President Barack Obama signed a memorandum Friday that ends a prohibition on supplying federal family-planning funds and contraceptives to international aid groups that provide abortions, abortion referrals or abortion counseling."

Additionally, this appeared in an article on the Fox News site:

"The national security orders (signed by Obama on the 22nd) mandate that interrogation techniques in the Army Field Manual be used by all intelligence and law enforcement services; call for a task force to look at closing the detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within the year; and orders a strategy to be developed for handling detainees in the future. The presidential directive also orders a stay in the case of Ali Al-Marri, the only person being held by the military as an enemy combatant on U.S. soil."

All these new policies are reversals of directives by the Bush administration. Obama and his supporters are for killing unborn innocent babies and for playing nice with the terrorists that want to kill us all? Hmmm, anybody else see a problem with his logic??

I know that people are all over the map about the abortion issue, but the vast majority of the country believes that there should be restrictions with rape and medical exceptions. There is more red tape for a person to get a tattoo or to buy cigarettes than there is for an abortion.

Abortion activists believe that an underage girl should be able to get an abortion with out her parents permission and be taken over state lines without parental consent to obtain abortions. My daughter's school will not give her a Children's Tylenol without permission from us. What on earth makes any person think they should be able to help an underage girl have ANY medical procedure without consulting the parents?? I guess I shouldn't just go after the Dems - Rick Perry (the jackass governor of Texas) issued an executive order for all girls to be vaccinated for HPV by the sixth grade. Of course, I have never made any secret of the fact that I find Rick Perry to be the worst governor that Texas has had in my lifetime.

I can not say I am surprised about Obama's actions his first week in office. This is why I campaigned so hard against the Democratic Party, not just Obama. They want complete control over every aspect of our - your - lives. They are chiseling away at the American way of life. The Democratic agenda is now to become your momma, your daddy and your caretaker. We are all too dumb to take care of ourselves, too dumb to manage our own money, make decisions for our children; so they will do it for us. How dare these politicians think they know what medical treatments my daughter needs??

WARNING: The more dependant we become on government to be our caretakers- the more control they have. Eventually, if this trend keeps progressing, they will have complete control over all the money, food supplies, medical care and everything else because they are so arrogant that they believe that we are incapable to taking care of ourselves.

Unfortunately, half this country has become so damn lazy, they are perfectly happy to let the government take care of them. They expect and believe that it is the role of government to provide health care, food and shelter to every man, woman and child in this country and the rest of the world. I am not sure where they get this idea; it is not how our Constitution reads.

President George W. Bush and his lovely wife, Laura, returned to Texas today. Listening to his speech in Midland, I am still in awe of the grace and kindness he is showing to President Obama. He called him a "good man" and offered his prayers for his presidency and expressed anticipation of good things.

Mr. President - I want to thank you for the good things you did while you were my President. I thank you for the Supreme Court appointments you made - Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito. I thank you for your courage and resolution to take a stand against terrorism. I thank you for making the tough decisions; most of us can only imagine the stress and pressure that comes with the job that you were willing to do. Even in times I disagreed with your choice, I have no doubt that you did what you truely believed to be in the best interest of every man, woman and child in the United States of America. I have no doubt that your decisions were made with information not readily available to the general public; I also do not doubt that they every decision was prayerfully considered. I thank you for sharing your lovely bride, our First Lady, Laura. She has been just incredible and we have been honored to have her. Thank you for keeping us safe from additional terror attacks. I just want to thank you, so...


P.S. I have cold beer, hot steaks and fried jalapenos waiting on Texoma!! Come on up!

For those of you that may not be familiar with Glenn Beck; he has a new program on the Fox News Channel. He is a brilliant, insightful commentator with a wicked sense of humor. I have had the privilege of listening to Glenn on the radio for several years prior to his television debut on CNN three years ago. Now I am not commuting anymore and do not get to listen to the radio show like I used to, but now I can DVR the new Fox show and see Glenn's puffy, pale face (love ya Glenn!!), better yet I can hear his voice and his magnificent perspective on what is going on in the world.

Glenn Beck is a real guy with a heart; his humor is priceless. He is also a best selling author and a hot chocolate connoisseur. I read his last book in one sitting; I simply could not put it down. I am really looking forward to him being around for a long time!

This is someone ya'll may want to check out!!


I would like to point out a few examples of class, examples that are rarely seen in the political climate we face today. President Bush is going out in style. He is not making a lot of fuss; he is going out quietly and allowing the President Elect to have his time. He has taken quite a beating from the left and they are not finished with him yet. Even as he prepares to leave the White House, the extremists are still calling for him to be prosecuted. Unlike the Clinton administration that stole all th "W" keys from the White House keyboards, George W. Bush instructed his staff to show respect to the incoming staff of President Elect Obama and he has been gracious to the Obama family.

Another great example is Sarah Palin. She was on Glenn Beck's new Fox News Program. Glenn asked her if Obama will be HER President. Her response was that he absolutely is her president. She spoke about her pride in America and her desire to see Obama do good things for this country because she is an American first. She did not have an ugly word to say about him and acknowleged that while they have differing views on many issues; she said that she has no doubt about his desire to serve this country and to bring about positive changes.

The last example I would like to point out is President Elect Barack Obama. I do not agree with most of his positions, but like him or not he will be sworn in tomorrow as the 44th President of the United States. He has shown himself to be a class act. He has reached out to Hilary Clinton and to John McCain. He has reached accross the isle and brought people to the table that surprised many. He has stood his ground against his most ardent supporters in his choice of Rick Warren to give the Inaugural Prayer. I am not likely to agree with most of his political positions, but I will show respect to the office and to the man.

It is okay to agree to disagree. Now is the time to lead by example; I hope that all my conservative friends will join me in prayer for our incoming President and will show others that we can disagree on issues without hate and without name-calling and without hoping/wishing for his failure.

Blagojevich is the biggest ass I have ever seen. This is what he had to say following his overdue impeachment. "The causes of the impeachment are because I've done things to fight for families."

I think Bob Beckel was right. He should just plead insanity and collect disability.
This is going to be the gift that keeps on giving...

Here is a headline from this morning, try not to lose consciousness when your blood pressure spikes!!

Democratic Governors Asking Government for $1T Bailout Package
Governors from Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Ohio are seeking funds to deal with unprecedented state budget shortfalls in 41 states and Washington, D.C.

Seems like if Massachusetts needs money the Kennedy's could float them a loan rather than ask the taxpayers to BAILOUT a mismanaged state. If you don't have it, DON'T SPEND IT. How can Mass. not have any money?? Greenwich alone could fund a state as small as Mass.

Here are your crappy mismanagers of your taxpayer money requesting the latest BAILOUT.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick
New York Gov. David Paterson
New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle

Is anybody else tired of BAILOUTS? Does anybody know where the money is going?? NO ONE knows where it is all going.

The Fed has 22 major departments in which trillions of taxpayer money is dispersed. Those departments (Departments of Education, Homeland Security, etc.) then disperse the funds to divisions of each department and they continue to trickle down until there is nothing left.

There is very little oversight and the money is often spent in ways not intended by the Fed or the States when it is given out. Agencies will inflate estimated needs in order to increase funding, others will invent new and exciting ways to spend grant money because if they do not spend it all they will not get a matching amount the following year.

One example that I took notice of is when my boyfriend (now husband) took a job with a company that did construction on military bases. In 1993, he was flown to Hawaii, The Kingdom of Tonga and one other place to work. The job in Hawaii was replacing the carpeting in an officers club. When he came home, he said that the carpet he removed was only one year old and looked brand new. Furthermore, the club was scheduled for demolition the following year. The military paid his airfare, shipping for his tools and materials, labor charges and hotel. This entire expenditure was nothing but a waste of taxpayer money. There are so many things wrong with this that I am not sure where to start. We can afford to recarpet an officers club, but can not take care of our veterans.

An old friend from high school has become a powerhouse in Texas politics as founder of a non-profit watchdog organization, specifically watching spending and government waste of taxpayer money. Michael Quinn Sullivan is president of Empower Texans. He is a Conservative Republican that is openly critical of other Republicans that are fiscally irresponsible with taxpayer money.

I hope to see Michael emerge as a national figure. He is completely brilliant in fiscal matters and is diligent in his pursuit of good stewardship of the money hard working taxpayers earned. For my friends in Texas check out the website, Perhaps someone will encourage him to go to Washington and straighten out the boneheads. Better yet, maybe he will run for office one day...I'll bet he could cut the budget by 33% just by eliminating wasteful spending. WE NEED YOU IN DC, MICHAEL!!

Will 2009 be any better?

I am a realist with an optimistic undertone. I always try to hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Unfortunately, I am not overly encouraged by the headlines as 2008 comes to a close.

"GM Gets $4 Billion In Low Interest Loans; Chrysler Still Waiting"

"Governor Appoints Burris to US Senate" (Blagojevich)

"Dozens die in New Year's nightclub fire in Bangkok"

"Atheists want 'God' out of inaugural oath"

"Thousands of stores to disappear in '09"

"AIG seeks to ease repayment terms for government loan"

Can you believe Blagojevich??!! He has got to be one of the most blatant examples of narcissism I have ever seen. I am truly amazed at his astronomical arrogance and complete lack of contrition. If I had been caught on tape saying the things he said, I would be completely mortified - but not him!! It is business as usual! He is not the least bit concerned that it is entirely inappropriate for him to have made ANY appointments. His own party is disgusted with him, demanded that he resign and he just keeps going.

I have to wonder what Burris was thinking in accepting this appointment... Really, if he asked ME to fill the seat, I would not want my name associated with his in any form or fashion. Then again, it seems that Burris' political career was circling the bowl when this opportunity arose; maybe he figured this was his only shot. He has been defeated in the last several elections that he entered, including the race to be Governor of Illinois; he was beaten by Blagojevich. Hmmmm...

Check out this snippet from the Chicago SunTimes: "Burris, his lobbying firm, his clients and a law firm that includes him donated $127,986 to Blagojevich since the governor took office. Burris himself gave $4,500 to the governor, including $1,000 last June. His lobbying firm, Burris & Lebed Consulting, gave $10,796 in cash and services. The law firm with which Burris is affiliated kicked in $5,000 for the governor. Burris' consulting firm has gotten $294,546.30 in state contracts under Blagojevich." This can't be good...but it seems completely in Blagojevich's character to pick a guy with whom he has financial ties.

Then we have AIG. Poor AIG and their financial woes. They are concerned that it may difficult to repay the government the $60 BILLION loan - part of the $150 BILLION BAILOUT package. They are asking that the guidelines for repayment be lightened. They agreed to those terms less than a month ago!! ARE THEY SERIOUS??!! I will say it again and again, DOJ or THE ATTORNEY GENERAL NEED TO OPEN A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO AIG!! Something is astonishingly wrong at AIG and I believe that authorities have the responsibility to investigate. When Patrick Fitzgerald is finished with Blagojevich, he needs to turn his attention to AIG execs!

Of course, we have a new incoming president; this means a lot of changes for the country. His views are quite different from the outgoing president. At least Obama cannot disappoint me; my expectations are low. The man has no where to go but up in my book!

We get to start this new year off by watching Illinois to see if the controversial appointment is confirmed, by watching the far left go out of their freaking minds about Rick Warren say a prayer at the inauguration and by watching AIG and other BAILOUT beneficiaries squander the taxpayers hard earned money at the spa while trying to get out of repaying the loan.

Gee, I am suddenly not feeling so optimistic anymore...
