Weekly Address

I don't know about you, but the presidents weekly radio address and the Democratic response really ticked me off. The key focus of the messages is spending. We are talking about my money, your money, our money. They seem to think we have a never ending supply for their pet project. The Democrats went beyond the mark and chose to make an emotional appeal with every intent of robbing us all, by using a minor to pedal their tripe.

Congress has a very important responsibility when it comes to my money. Their first order of business is to fund the essential rolls of government. Let us start with the most basic of requirments, defense. Our most basic defense is border security. Our house speaker has even denied us this basic protections she is sworn to uphold in her oath of office.

Let's get it together people. The government of the United States of America is not a charitable fund or a special needs account for any noble cause that can spin a good story. It is not to be driven by social interests or percieved needs.
Davey Crocket Said it best so many years ago.

One day in the House of Representatives a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer. Several beautiful speeches had been made in its support. The speaker was just about to put the
question when Crockett arose: "Mr. Speaker--I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has not the power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member on this floor knows it.
We have the right as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money. Some eloquent appeals have been made to us upon the ground that it is a debt due the deceased. Mr. Speaker, the deceased lived long after the close of the war; he was in office to the day of his death, and I ever heard that the government was in arrears to him.
"Every man in this House knows it is not a debt. We cannot without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. We have not the semblance of authority to appropriate it as charity. Mr. Speaker, I have said we have the right to give as much money of our own as we please. I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week's pay to the object, and if every member of congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks."

If these so called leaders want to actually help the cause let them be the first to make a donation and set up an account with their own money. The American people are very generous and will gladly donate to a good cause. Look at all the funds brought together for relief, 9-11, tsunami, Katrina and so many more. If they have a case to make, let them stand before the American People and make it. If it is truly worthy the need will be met. Don't rob the American people. Do your job.

Confidence Is Shaking

All our leaders in Washington are failing us. It doesn't matter the branch. They don’t seem to have any contact with the citizens they are sent to represent. How could a large group of elected officials be so out of touch. Everyone of these people made it by popular vote. Even the president, who is elected electorally, won the popular vote.

This leaves two possibilities. They lied to be elected or they were the better of two evils. I know the lying bit probably entered your mind right away. Just the word politics causes us to cover our wallets and children. Anyone who holds office of any level immediately loses points in credibility.

If instead, the vote was for the best of the worst, how do we draw quality people back into this villainous profession. When our nation was founded, we had the best come together to make laws and set our national direction. They made mistakes as all humans do but the good and future of our nation was the first priority. Now we see self and greed as the key motivators in our leaders. Gone is a nation first perspective and going is the quality of our nation.

Look at the confidence polls taken over the last couple of years. Our president is under 30% and congress is under 20%. Yet, these back-wards individuals fail to recognize that a sharp change of course is necessary to straighten our path. We the American people need to send course altering letters and phone calls often. The quality of the cast in power is minimal so are input is of utmost importances. We bloggers and letter writers better stay at it or this ship may sink.

How To Deal With Illegals

What congress should do and what they are trying to do is quite different. The American people time and time again have told them they don't want amnesty or any other illegal incentive program. We wont the immigration law upheld that is already on the books. We want the Job Magnet shut off, and we want security restored to our nation.

Here is a great article that brings it to a ten point program that even our leaders can follow. Look it over carefully and then forward it to your Senator. They could use all the hints they can get.

#1) We must pursue enforcement first
#2) We need to build the fence
#3) We need to fully staff our border patrol
#4) We need to fully staff Citizenship and Immigration Services
#5)We need an exit visa program
#6) We need to take away the "jobs magnet"
#7) No more anchor babies
#8) We need to put an end to sanctuary cities and drivers’ licenses for illegal aliens
#9) Refuse to allow anyone caught in the United States illegally to ever become a citizen or return for any reason
#10) End catch and release

These Sound like the right Ten step course to saving America.

I have written many articles on this subject.
You Admit It
Cautious Optimism
Your Going The Wrong Way
Can We Send Them Home
Building A Border Fence
Where Do You Live? -- Since I wrote this piece it has gone out all over and has been plagiarized numerous times. I only hope more people get its message.

Perhaps Osama Can Be Saved

It is pretty tough to imagine but give Bill Keller a hand for trying. Bill Keller convidted inside trader and now evangalist has sent Osama a video. This guy has got gutts.
"Look at you, look at your life," Keller says. "You live like a hunted goat in caves, totally dependent on a small group of people for your survival. At any moment, one of those you trust could betray you like Judas betrayed Jesus and your life would be over. The false prophet you follow, Mohammad, was poisoned to death by one of his wives."

"You followed the same path as the false prophet you have put your faith in – Mohammad – who, like you, was once a businessman, but who history has recorded was nothing more than a murdering pedophile who led men's souls to eternal
damnation with the false religion he created," Keller says. "Islam is a 1,400-year-old lie that was born out of the voice of Satan – literally. Mohammad was correct when he stated it was Satan who initially spoke to him. He dreamed up his own god, Allah, a poor imitation of the God of the Bible, and inspired
his own holy book, the Quran, a cheap imitation of the inspired, inerrant Word of God found in the Bible."

After that, I am sure there is a price on his head. Could this one guy, possibly turn some heads? I will definately applaud the effort.

The Right Tool For The Job

I can't help myself. I seem to end up in the tool section whenever I go to the store. I am often disappointed because I don't find anything new or different that will solve lifes problems. I keep looking.

This may be the one.

Where were You?

I expected so much more of September 11, 2001. My identical twin girls had just been born a few days ago. We were finally all home safe and sound. I turned on the radio to what I dismissed as a modern day Orson Wells “War of the Worlds”, only to realize the truth of the horror. I heard the failing voices describe the appearance and impact of the second plane. I just pulled up to the local drug store to pick up my wife’s prescriptions. The phone in my pocket rang; my wife in a medical fog needed me home now. I got what I needed as quick as I could and came home to my family. The world I had such high hopes for was suddenly a cold and hostile place and I needed to protect my family.

Each of us has vivid memories of that day. We can clearly see the image of the planes crashing into the buildings. The fire was spewing out from the building and the debris flying everywhere. I can remember street shots where letterhead fell like large snowflakes among those who looked on in shocked disbelief. Dust and smoke billowed down the streets and enveloped all. Then we saw the buildings disappear into the cloud, one by one.

Each of us took a vow that day to do whatever it took to get those who did this to us. Each of us prayed that something like this would never happen again. We then prayed for all those who must be lost in this tragedy.
America was united for a few weeks. It was an awe inspiring time. Everyone knew what needed doing.
Here we are six years later fighting amongst ourselves. Gone is the unity and determination. Let us reclaim our unity and resolve to vanquish all those who seek to do us harm. Let us not forget those who were lost that day in New York, Washington DC and Pennsylvania. May their memory burn in us and keep the fire of vigilance burning in our nation.

What do we do NOW?

The problem is that most people don't realize we have been fighting the same people for over 200yrs. You being a Marine, think Tripoli. (I blogged on this below.) These same people have made promises and broke promises for years based on their time and convenience. They carefully made sure it wasn't ours.
Our might will buy us some time and respect but it will only last a short while. They have a tradition of storytelling where we are the bad guys over and over and over..... It isn't easy reprogramming centuries of this propaganda.
This is a religion steeped in revenge and honor. Because we dishonored or killed someone’s great, great, great.........grandfather we and all those who descended from him have a price on our head. Appeasement and Bribery won't cut it. We need a new story that can be passed down the generations on how we are the Savior or we need to stop the passing down of generations.
In Iraq, we could do the right thing and fully save this nation despite them, and write our Savior story. The hero isn't an easy part. It will take much more.
We could attempt to flash westernize them and their children, breaking tradition and possibly bringing them out of the seventh century. We would risk untold wrath from the elders.
Finally, we could hunt down and kill everyone who is steeped in the traditions of Islam and wants us killed. We would need a military far greater than its current status. We will need resolve to see it through because the smallest remnant would only mean a repeat in the future. Time is not an issue to these people. They see no problem with waiting a hundred years to exact their revenge.
In this day and age of WMD's we can no longer afford the luxury of waiting. We must choose a course and be resolved to see it through. We are on the brink of destruction and it is the calling of our generation to save America.


After Thought --
Ron Paul (Rino) and his Democratic allies have failed at history. They are so focused on their pin hole view of the world that they fail to see clearly.
This is where we step in and remind/educate people about the truth and depth of the real problem. We cannot afford to take an HMO view and treat the symptoms without cutting out the root problem. I do not want this thing coming back over and over for another hundred or so years.

Ron Paul and the like need to also be reminded we are a Super Power. Other nations look to us for direction and support and we in turn have grown accustom to vast bounty on our table from around the world. Hs perspective will only collapse the world and ultimately be our undoing as well. Once again remind/educate those who need their eyes opened.

What we really need is a real media outlet that focuses on America first and reminds us of our history and what we have already won. Knowing where we have been and what it has taken to get here would do our nation good.

I am afraid the real answer is more than most can handle when viewing their world through there liberal educated pinhole glasses. Our only choice is convert them or kill them. This is the only choice they will accept by their battle lines. We don't have the grace of choosing a different line in the sand.

I had Forgotten. Didn't You?

Muslim Fundamentalists have been fighting and terrorizing the United States since our beginnings. Our founding fathers attempted to appease them to no avail. Thomas Jefferson finally ended years of ransoms and tributes by sending warships full of Marines to the Barbary Coast to end it once and for all. They succeeded leaving behind what we know as "the Treaty of Tripoli". This success gave us free passage into the Mediterranean Sea but it in no way ended our war with Muslim Fundamentalists.

Read the History yourself. We have been at war on their choosing for hundreds of years. There memories are long and their time table longer. We need to set our jaw squarely and resolve ourself to a relentless pursuit of those who seek every available means to do us harm.

I feel scared just looking at it. An eighth grader was suspended for a week for drawing this. Our school system under the rules of zero tolerance took this as a serious threat.
This was a small sketch in the margins of some math work that was done in class. Could you imagine what form of punishment he would have gotten if he had drawn a Mohammad Cartoon.
I think the writer Neil Boortz on has said it best.
Wake up folks. These are our 21st century American government schools. They aren't worth a crap (pardon the expression). They exist for one purpose, to provide jobs for government union school teachers and government administrative hacks. Deep in your hearts each and every one of you know that the private sector could be doing a better job, and you're also deeply embarrassed, even if you won't admit it, that you have turned your children over to this hideous system to be, or so you think, "educated."
There is no one entity that is more responsible for the decline of our great country than our system of government education.
Our education system needs help.

Taking a Look at Fred Thompson

Humble beginnings and incredible luck placed Fred in the right spot at the right time throughout his life. Is the office of president the right place for 2008?

I found a great article that gave a bio of Fred. We really need to understand who this man is and what he stands for, since he will soon throw his hat in the ring.

...Thompson has so far used his laid-back style to his advantage. In a GOP field crowded with accomplished striver's who will seemingly do or say anything to get noticed, he has stood out for his practiced indifference to presidential gamesmanship.

Let us see how his waiting will pay off. He needs to come out of the box swinging. He needs clear ideas and a powerful presence. No one wants to here rhetoric and clichés.

Tom Tancredo has remained clear and strong on the issues. He ties all issues to our open borders and clearly understands how this effects every area.

If Fred wants to gain traction and get out in front of the competition, he needs to lock into the key issues. (Borders, Language, Terror and Economics)

I and many others will be waiting Fred! You want to gain conservative Americas support you better bring the goods.

The Judges Stand In The Way Of Law

I have been pounding the pulpit of following the law. I have demanded that we stop trying to reinvent the wheel and simply use what we have already in place. Finally, we get the Bush administration to move in the right direction. Now we have a San Fransisco Judge getting in the way of law.
Here is the article in question.

U.S. District Judge Maxine Chesney granted a nationwide temporary restraining order sought by the AFL-CIO and affiliated unions to keep the government from sending letters to employers demanding that they clear up workers' citizenship

It is not like these laws haven't been around awhile. We have had both entry and employment laws in reference to illegals for years. Hundreds of debates have occurred and considerations made when these laws were first written. Suddenly we need more time and assurances? As a discriminated against, second class, born and raised American citizen I want the laws we have enacted upheld. This nation was founded on the rule of law and we need to start following the laws.
My ancestors had to come through Ellis Island. They really knew back then how to guarantee the safety and health of our nation. We got in millions of immigrants and we carefully checked and processed everyone.
Now they just hike across the border and are given the keys to the country, at least they act that way. Thousands of people are murdered each year by illegals. Thousands of people are raped and brutalized each year by illegals. Banks and mortgage brokers have learned to cater to them. Credit companies solicit their business. When they fail on a loan or transaction the American tax payer picks up the tab. When they need health care, they get it immediately in our emergency rooms, paid for by the American tax payer. Food stamps, government housing, preferential treatment in business transactions and free education for all their children, compliments of the American tax payer.
The gravy train has got to stop. We need to put laws like this one in action immediately. All laws have made life difficult on a small percentage until the bugs work out. It is only a matter of time. We would be ahead financially if we offered a double your income match for work time lost for anyone who proves they were released under this law inappropriately. The one or two percent who could recover on such a plan would be a huge financial saving for we the American Tax Payer.
Let's tell this judge to back the law and let those who suffered harm sue to secure damages. This is the American way after all.
