Virginia Primaries Heating Up - Ken Vaughn for Congress VA 11th

We have our primaries coming up in Virginia in just over a week.  Things are getting hot around here with last minute campaigning and the get out the vote effort.  

A man I know and genuinely like is running for congress in the Virginia 11th.  His name is Ken Vaughn.  He and his wife Julie were one of the first people that I met when I decided to dip my toe into the activism world; having no idea where it would lead.  

Ken and Julie opened up their home to strangers and helped get us organized.  Believe me in the progressive la la land that Northern Virginia is, that wasn't an easy task.  Ken took it many steps beyond me and decided to run.  When he made this decision it was before redistricting and he wasn't sure if he would be running against Moron Moran or Connelly.  Once the lines had been set, he found out he would be running against Connelly and would have to face a primary challenge.  

If you live around the NOVA area, help Ken with his GOTV efforts, if you don't you still help out with a small (or not so small) donation.  Every little bit matters when election day is in less than two weeks.  

Ken is an honest man.  He will work to help us get back on a path of fiscal sanity.  

Here is one of the latest email ads and this should strike a cord for all fiscal conservatives:  Spending must be curbed, and it must be done now.

After more than a year on the campaign trail, my primary opponent has finally explained how he wants to cut government spending:
With 48 cents of every dollar the federal government plans to spend next year going to a so-called 'entitlement', I recall what the famous outlaw, Willie Sutton, answered when asked why he robbed banks:  "Because that's where the money is!"  Six cents of each dollar will go to paying the interest on the national debt, 27 cents will pay for national security related expenditures, and the remaining 19 cents will be used for everything else the federal government does. 

We can absolutely find some savings within the latter, but significant entitlement reform will be required to make a serious dent in our deficit and national debt.  We should not go after retirees and near-retirees, but rather restructure the system for future generations who would virtually lose all benefits when the programs collapse.
After highlighting how much money is spent on entitlements he fails to identify a single cut that he is willing to make today. Instead, his proposal is to have the “future generations” pay for all of our spending!
I find that proposal to be fundamentally immoral.
There is a better way. It starts by resolving to live within our means. Just as when an overweight person pledges to get into shape, it’ll take work and require a change in lifestyle, but we can succeed, if we unite behind a common goal.
To achieve our goal, we must first define what that goal is. Our Congress needs to set a budgetary goal with measurable milestones. Just as President Kennedy pledged to put a man on the moon within a decade, we need to rally behind a goal of returning our debt to a sustainable level within 12 years.  Once we know what our goal is, we can then develop a year-by-year debt plan showing how we will get there. Our Congress should then raise or lower the debt ceiling based on this plan. This will put real constraints on our budget.
Whoever wins this congressional race will be only one voice out of 435 in the House. That person will need to work with others in Congress to get things done – as a result, it is impossible to predict what the detailed spending and tax policies might look like at the end of the process. However, common sense tells us that virtually every program will have to contribute to the solution. History has shown that it is unlikely that federal revenues will exceed 19% of our economy, regardless of what our tax policies are. That means we will need to cut federal spending by about a third if we are to be responsible. This will not be easy but my website provides a sample budget that describes what this might look like.
My question to you is: Would you rather have your representative join with the current majority from both parties in stealing from our children’s future, or would you prefer to have your representative lead the way towards a more responsible budget?
I will lead.
We are now twelve days away from the primary election, and every dollar counts. Please help the cause by making a $250, $100, $50, or $25 donation today.
In Liberty,
Ken Vaughn

Let’s Learn From the Past and Stop Spending the Future

Remember the BP oil spill? We can still learn a few things from that experience.

In the constantly multiplying days since the BP oil spill all we have received from President Obama are many nuanced, vetted, and parsed versions of Bart Simpson’s famous dodge, “I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything!”  Not exactly the change those who voted for the only honest politician from Chicago had hoped for is it?  It makes me wonder, is there a sign on the President’s desk that says, “The Buck Stops Over There.”  More than three years into a national calamity and only six months away from what we hope will be change in 2013 and Mr. Obama still thinks his fingerprints aren’t on anything except the levers of imperial power and a big arrow that points to Crawford, Texas.

In his first address to the nation from the Oval Office President Obama sounded like a professor lecturing his self-indulgent students as to why they failed their test because they didn’t study, “It’s a bad result but it’s your fault.”  BP was responsible for the leaking oil because they are greedy capitalists, but America was responsible because we use more oil than we possess or are allowed to produce parroting the falsehood, "We consume more than 20% of the world's oil, but have less than 2% of the world's oil reserve.”   Mr. Obama went so far as to blame Mother Nature falsely saying “And that's part of the reason oil companies are drilling a mile beneath the surface of the ocean -- because we're running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water."  

The safest place to drill for oil is on land and we have proven reserves in ANWAR a region that was specifically set aside for drilling, but the Green Police who now rule the nation won’t allow it.  There are also proven reserves in shallow water but the Green Police once again wag their petulant finger in denial.  We are drilling in the most dangerous places almost asking for a disaster because our ineffectual unrealistic leader and his fellow travelers would rather invest billions more on green technology in the hopes of creating green jobs.

Acting as Venture Socialists, the Progressives our President represents have been investing billions of our tax dollars for decades in windmills and solar panels, and they still aren’t viable.  And if Spain, the world’s leader in creating Green Jobs is any indication for every green job produced 2.5 private sector jobs are lost and most green jobs are either non-producing government jobs or temporary.  Where’s the leadership?  Our government has told us for forty years that they have been trying to achieve energy independence.  Now we know we have the reserves to make that a reality and what has our leader led us to?   President Obama has managed to lead us from a recession into The Great Recession.  Which at least qualifies as following the advice of a cartoon characters or as Hank Hill said to his near-do-well son, “Bobby, if you're gonna do something wrong, do it right!”

Everyday drip, drip, drip another assault on American traditions another insult to the American people as our President bows to foreign potentates or apologizes for our history.  His poll numbers show this is wearing thin.  Even the shills over at MSNBC have begun to question the leadership of President Obama, “What are we trying to do in this administration?  Why does he want a second term? Would he tell us? What’s he going to do in his second term, more of this? Is this it? Is this as good as it gets? Where are we going?”  If this is leadership, as Dilbert once observed, don’t step in it.

Having spent the better part of two decades teaching, I thought I had heard every excuse ever to grace the mind of an evasion artist.  I’ve heard everything from “I know its plagiarized but I didn’t have time to check over the work of the guy I hired to write my paper,” to  “I didn’t know that no late submissions accepted meant I couldn’t turn in work after the due date.”  And in the comedy series category I have heard 8,000 versions of “Bill Gates ate my homework.” However, as creative as some of those have been President Obama’s endless variations of “George Bush did it” has now become the all-time longest running excuse.  Evasion isn’t leadership just as saying something doesn’t make it true.

Now Mr. Obama is telling us he is a fiscal conservative and a budget cutting tightfisted economically conservative red white and blue deficit hawk.  After three years of FDR on steroids we are supposed to believe he is really Calvin Coolidge, Ronald Reagan, and scrooge McDuck all rolled up in one.  Then again it isn’t class warfare; it is making sure everyone pays their fair share except of course for his supporters who pay nothing.  It isn’t helping establish Islamist regimes throughout the Middle East; it is supporting democracy.  And, oh yes, it isn’t out-of-control spending; it is investing in our future.  I guess since we’re investing in the future it makes sense to spend the incomes of our great great grandchildren.  Can anyone say taxation without representation?

The continual fog of political spin and deception is poisoning the already fractured dialog between America’s citizens and their perpetually re-elected representatives.   This lead from behind, managing the decline transformation of America has got to stop.  Just as no one ever gets to step into the same river twice no one gets to live in the country they grew up in because the times they are a changing. But what we are experiencing today is not normal change. This is a top down revolution that is designed to transform America into a social democracy.

Evading the problems will not make them go away.  We have got to face up to the hard choices that need to be made.  Are we all going to silently follow as we are led over a cliff?  Or are we going to stand for something before we fall for nothing.  What we need is someone who will tell us the truth: “We’re broke.”  We need someone who will stand for limited government, personal liberty, and economic opportunity.  We need someone who will stand up and be counted not someone who counts on others standing up to do the job so they can buy votes by expropriating the hard-earned fruit of their labor to pass the wealth around.

We don’t need another four years of evasion and trickery. We need to take a long hard look at the dire situation these Progressives have created, and then we need to plan ahead, put our nose to the grindstone, and work our way out of this hole.  Or as Hank Hill said, “If you plan ahead, then when things happen, you're prepared for them.”

Liberals Slam Republicans over Prosecuting 'Honorable' Edwards, Celebrate Not Guilty Ruling

John Edwards is an awful human being who cheated on his cancer stricken wife, impregnating his mistress and lying to the people of the United States. He used one million dollars of his political contributors' money to hide the affair and love-child... and somehow was found innocent of using his political contributors' money to hide the affair and love-child.

The jury's actions before the trial was even decided showed that they were not even paying attention to what was unfolding in front of their eyes. One alternate juror was flirting with Edwards, while others were calling one another in order to make certain that their clothes were the same. Members of the main jury were reportedly talking about the case when they were not supposed to, resulting in the judge reprimanding them. Thus, it should come at no surprise that Edwards was found not guilty.

Out of this miscarriage of justice, as expected, the Left is riding their high horse in order to shield a terrible person and slam conservatives. It would almost be shocking if it wasn't so disgusting.

This person, who commented on the New York Times' respective article, believes it was all a conspiracy concocted by evil Republicans to bilk the honorable Edwards (note the 16 thumbs up):
Over at the Huffington Post, it's the Republicans who are dirty, not the adulterer:
And don't forget about nonsensical ramblings about the Koch brothers:
And don't forget, Edwards 'only' cheated on his dying wife! What about Buuuuuush?!
Over at the Daily Kos, while we're at it, why don't we prosecute Laura Bush... for some reason:
And finally, hey, Edwards is just a straight-up good guy:

Obama, Romney Tied in Three Battleground States

HT: National Journal

With the summer campaign just starting to heat up, the latest poll numbers out of three battleground states are indicating a toss-up this November for their 21 combined electoral college votes, which could very well place one candidate over the top on election night.

In Colorado President Obama leads by just one point (45-44%); in Nevada by two (46-44%) and it's all tied in Iowa (44%) with little more then five months until election day, according to the latest NBC News/Marist numbers released earlier this morning.

These numbers, although very early in the cycle and likely to change as events unfold, reveal the incumbents inherent weakness maintaining states he won convincingly in 2008, and how hard his reelection battle will be because the challenger has five months to present himself through commercials, debates, speeches, and even who he picks as his Vice-Presidential candidate to make the case that we need someone fresh.

Especially in Nevada, where unemployment is still above 9% and local business owners remember the man 'in charge' who infamously told Americans not to vacation in Las Vegas, which depends on tourism from all across the county, hell the world, to stay afloat and prosper. Not to mention, Mormon voters hold a sizable share of the vote and will be out in force.

But regardless of which state we specifically discuss, President Obama is still underwater on the economy, his overall approval rating and thus far electoral performance against a man who won his party's nomination with a weak plurality.

We still have a long way to go, but the good news - for Mitt Romney at least - is that he has nowhere but up to go in the coming months and that he largely controls his own destiny at this moment, which he should take full advantage of.

Report: Hugo Chavez on Cusp of Death

"A couple of months at most." From Yahoo! News:
This reporter has been told that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has metastatic rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that has "entered the end stage". The information and the quote come from a highly respected source close to Chavez and who is in a position to know his medical condition and history. This source says the prognosis is dire and that Chavez is now not expected to live "more than a couple of months at most." Chavez is running for re-elec tion in Venezuela but several sources--including the one who revealed the exact kind of cancer-- have told me that they believe it is doubtful the dictator will live to see the results.

Voting is scheduled for October 7th. Chavez has been treated three times in Cuba but the exact kind of cancer has been a closely guarded state secret.

Refs Defeat Celtics, 115-111

It's official: the fix is in. In overtime, when Rajon Rondo is forearmed in the face and no foul is called, the fix is in. When Dwayne Wade kicks Kevin Garnett in the stomach, and Garnett gets the foul, the fix is in.

Full disclosure: I hate both the Celtics and the Heat.

Copy of Eric Holder's Sermon to Pastors
(the first draft)
About politics and the November Election

Warning:  Satire Included at No Charge

Well, Bill Shakespeare was back in town, this time he was shouting:
"Many a truth is spoken in jest, I mean it."  So I called a buddy in
the Casa Blanca and asked for a copy of Holders' speech to the
pastors he expects to reach 10 million people.  I have streamlined
it so it will fit here, and the sarcasm is all mine.

My dear beloved pastor friends;  I come before you with some matters
of great importance today.  I need to discuss with you the importance
of the November election,  most important in history, we all know.
If brother barry loses, I will have to go back to work.  Don't want to
do that.

But for this election, please remember some important facts, I will
place them in order of importance, so you can preach on them every
Sunday till the second coming of Barry, err I mean till Barry's
second election.

These will all have to do with the 10 commandments.  I know you
 are familar with them, but there are some alterations we need to
make until Barry becomes king for life.  Err, I what I mean is until
Barry wins.

According to my authority as the chief law enforcement officer in
the land of the free and home of the brave, you all have my
permission to make the following changes:

1.  The first commandment shall be changed to read,  thou shalt
have no other deities before Barry.  For the next six months, Barry
is the be all, end all and fiddle with middle law.  His name is to be
bowed down to, and you need to teach your people to praise him.
You know, Barry Soetoro, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.

2.  The second commandment shall be changed to, thou shalt make
as many images of Barry as possible, and bow to them.  I am
aware that his name and face are almost everywhere, but I will not
be happy until everytime everyone of your people open their eyes,
they will see an image of Barry.  Please teach them to bow at the
mere mention of his namen.

3.  The third commandment is changed to, thou shalt not take the
name of Barry in vain.  No bad words about Barry, nothing  in
a light hearted manner, nothing about Michelle, their vacations,
his basketball, his golfing every weekend;  only good words about
Barry.  And remember, big brother is listening.  Barry is special,
they need to remember.

4.  The fourth commandment is now:  remember the sabbath day
to brainwash thy people.  This is serious business brothers, we
cannot afford any free thinkers here.  Don't take a day off until
my job is secure for four more years.  It's okay if Barry takes a
vacation, he's Barry.

5.  The fifth commandment is changed to: honor thy president
and thy first lady, that it may go well with thee and thine.  Your
family is now the family in the House White, you know, Casa
Blanca.  Your birth family takes second place to Barry and
Michelle, always remember to put them first, 'cause they are
the first family.

6.  The sixth commandment is now, thou shalt kill babies and
anyone who Barry thinks is a terrorist.  Remember now, this
is Barry and Barry is right about everything.  Just do as he
says and don't question it.  He signed the law, didn't he?

7.  The seventh commandment is now:  thou shalt accept gay
marriage,  why, because your supreme leader, Barry says so.
He evolved in his thinking, and we had to change the biblical
commandment.  It's okay, he is Barry, just do it.  Just make
sure everybody's wife gets out to vote.

8.  The eight command has been changed to, stealing is okay,
as long as you take from the 1% and give it to banks, unions
and anyone who voted for Barry.  Here again, we had to change
a few things, but, hey, Barry says it's okay.  Viva Barry, long
live the king!  King Barry, we adore thee!

9.  The ninth commandment had to change also:  thou shalt
lie as much and as often as possible, as long as it benefits
Barry.  We all know that we should tell the truth, if we can,
but when you want to keep the White House, and keep Brother
Barry in power, hey, lying is now okay.  After all, our Brother
Barry does it all the time, and he gets away with it.

10.  The tenth is also a bit different now, with Barry in the
White House;  coveting yourneighbor's house, wife, servant,
interns, his ox, his ass, and anything that you need that you
don't have -- is now okay.  Why?  Because Brother Barry needs
the Occupy Movement to keep the White House safe for us for
the next, oh, 50 or so years.  Did I say 50, I meant 4.

Now, thanks for coming, make sure you get a copy of this to
pass out to your 10 million hearers, and remember to pray to
err, for Barry, and now let's have a hymn led by Brother
Sharpton while Brother Jesse passes the plate for a love
offering.  Please give till it hurts.

Pass this out at church!

Chaos and Crisis in Syria

Chaos and crisis continue to plague Syria today, as Turkey and Japan joined eleven other nations in expelling Syrian diplomats; Russia and China still refuse to permit military intervention in the situation and Houla, where over 100 civilians were murdered over the weekend, is facing further bombardment.

Newspapers, domestic and foreign, are using Republican nominee Mitt Romney's key phrase that the world is in fact "paralyzed" in dealing with the brutal al-Assad regime and his Alawite cohorts. The U.N. appears sadly lock jammed in the belief that their cease fire agreement will gain any traction on the ground, while the Human Rights Committee is set to meet later this week.

The entire situation is equally maddening and saddening to watch. 

Why did the world ignore Syria for so long?

Why did they allow the death toll to rise daily without care?

Why did they pursue diplomacy with a murderer and tyrant?

Most answers involve "war weary" and "middle eastern conflict," but is that any excuse for sitting on the sidelines and allowing one well trained army to annihilate innocent civilians and a weak untrained militia? Since when is the previous war an excuse to forfeit the next one?

I am frankly shocked and disturbed over the world's reaction, especially my beloved United States. It's established that evil exists in this world, and that it cannot co-exist peacefully with the majority of people, nations and religions. And the most common and effective means to halting evil is by forcefully fighting it.

That is what must be done in regards to Syria. We must rise up, united, and give al-Assad's regime two options: stand down peacefully, or forcefully, because we are no longer going to watch this brutality and permit the unending slaughter of civilians and rebels.

Dealing with Divorce

Dealing with life issues can sometimes be the best and the worst thing that a person has to deal with. Sometimes these events can bring the joy of a lifetime while showing how a world can be brought together with just a few people. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and sometimes people are faced with difficult situations and decisions. This is the case with divorce and all of its complications. It has been said that divorce can be more stressful than the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, this can be the case for many people, especially the longer it drags out, the more expensive it is, and the number and ages of any children potentially involved. For all of these factors, it is important that you consider all of your options and make sure that you are prepared for what you may need to do.

When you are better prepared you can make better decisions. This can be especially important in the early stages of the divorce process. Being ready for the different eventualities is a good step in the right direction and one that you should be considering if you are in this situation. You should familiarize yourself with the issues and the laws of your state, for example Arizona Divorce Laws. These can help make sure that you are ready-- especially if you hire a good attorney with your best interests at heart.

Alimony in Arizona

Dealing with the effects of divorce can be a very stressful part of anyone's life. Feeling your world change around you as your family shifts is not a pleasant feeling or situation, but with proper planning you can be better prepared just in case you are stuck in such a difficult situation. A good attorney is a good first step. Another good step is to familiarize yourself with the various laws regarding marriage and divorce in your state. This can help you avoid some of the common pitfalls that people face when they enter into the divorce process. Knowing where you are and what can be done can be half the battle. You cannot be too careful, especially when you are dealing with your family and your finances. Make sure that you have a game plan ready with the best people that you can get on your side. These can be very valuable assets that can turn the tide of your struggle.

However, there are sometimes difficult situations that are unavoidable. Hopefully you can avoid divorce altogether or get the terms friendly to you, but what if they are not? If you have to deal with alimony, you should make sure that you know what you are doing. A good Arizona Alimony Lawyer can be a big difference in how your very life proceeds. This is money that would be coming out of your pocket. If you are better prepared with a good attorney, you will be in significantly better shape-- it could make one of the biggest differences in your life. So make sure that you are prepared. You will be happy that you did.

Assad Must Go

Enough is enough.
After fourteen months of watching Syria's brutal regime oppress and slaughter its own citizenry, escalating in the brutal massacre of 108 (mostly women and children) civilians earlier this week, outrage gripped several western nations, including Australia, Canada and the U.S., leading them to expel entire Syrian delegations today.

It's about time.

Assad and his Alawite allies spread out through the entire government have now murdered 10,000 civilians since last spring's pro-freedom protests. And the world has done absolutely nothing... Not. One. Thing. to stop the death, destruction and desolation left in the path of a brutal tyrant obsessed only with his power.

With his brutality now documented to be as disgusting as his father's own, who was responsible for over 25,000 dead Syrian's, mostly civilians, in the 1982 Hama massacre, even Russia is backing off from their unreasonable support of Assad's regime and calling for the U.N. peace plan to be put into full effect.

But the U.N. peace plan is generally useless. The only solution to Syria's ongoing crisis is the exit of Bashar al-Assad as president, and the only way that will be accomplished is by the world uniting and offering him an ultimatum: step away and stand down, or we will make you. And that might mean war, but that would be a blessing to the grieving families in Houla.

The tyrant must go. We must act. And we must do so now...before the next massacre is measured in thousands rather then hundreds...and God only knows what after that..

Good News: Claims to be in Severe Financial Trouble

I don't know if this is a desperate attempt by to scrap together five dollars, or if they are lying to their members to get more money. Either way, it does not sound good for the notorious website.

Formed in 1998, is best known for its ill-informed, angry attacks against fellow Americans. It sponsored and posted a video that compared President Bush to Adolf Hitler in 2004 and calling the man who helped up turn the tide in Iraq "General Betray Us."

Now could be reaping the benefits of years of lies. According to a mass email sent to their members, the site unequivocally begs for money. In particular, the beginning of the ad reads:
There are so many important races this year. Of course there's the presidential election. But the U.S. Senate is up for grabs, too. There's the Scott Walker recall in Wisconsin. If we can elect Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, that will be huge.

It's like picking which of your kids you love the most. I just can't do it.

But I'll be honest—if we can't increase our budget, we're going to have to pull the plug now on some absolutely crucial campaigns.
Considering their track record, of course, is most likely lying to their members about choosing which campaign to "pull the plug" on. But here's hoping this is the truth.
Some of's "Civility"

You can read the entire email below:
Dear MoveOn member,

With November fast approaching, we need to make some hard decisions about which campaigns we can afford to take on, and which ones we'll have to sit out.

There are so many important races this year. Of course there's the presidential election. But the U.S. Senate is up for grabs, too. There's the Scott Walker recall in Wisconsin. If we can elect Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, that will be huge.

It's like picking which of your kids you love the most. I just can't do it.

But I'll be honest—if we can't increase our budget, we're going to have to pull the plug now on some absolutely crucial campaigns.

Can you chip in $5 to help make sure we don't have to sit out some of these critical campaigns?

Click here to chip in $5 and help MoveOn take on more campaigns this election season.

Here are some examples of the important projects we'd love to run in 2012 if we had enough money:

Young voter turnout. Young voters were crucial to Obama's victory in 2008, but most elections experts say it's unlikely they'll vote again in similar numbers this time around. We learned how to register and turn out young voters last time, and we need to do it again.

Elect Elizabeth Warren and keep control of the U.S. Senate. Elizabeth Warren is one of the best progressive candidates we've seen in years. When control of the Senate could be decided on her race, how could we not help her win?

Fighting voter suppression. Republicans have passed a wave of laws aimed at making it harder to vote for African Americans, students, and poor people. If turnout goes down by even a couple percentage points among these key voting blocs, that could be disastrous. MoveOn will do a little bit on all of these projects, but will we be able to go big? That's mostly a question of resources. If we have enough money, we will. If not, we simply can't.

Click here now to chip in $5.

MoveOn has an incredible track record in past elections—when we take on a campaign, we get results.

In 2008, MoveOn was one of the first groups to endorse President Obama, and we then recruited 1 million volunteers who went door to door, made phone calls, and helped provide the surge of grassroots support necessary to elect Obama.

In 2006, before anyone else was even talking about it, we announced plans to take back Congress from the Republicans. We made over 7 million phone calls to occasional voters to help fuel the Democratic takeover of Congress.

And in 2004 we organized a neighborhood get-out-the-vote program that knocked on over 4.6 million doors in 10,000 swing-state precincts.

If we can finish this quarter with a bang, that will give us enough confidence to go forward with campaigns that we'd otherwise have to cut right now.

Click here to chip in $5 and help MoveOn take on more campaigns this election season.

Thanks for all you do.

A  Good  Week  for  Normal  People

Well, so far, the Memorial weekend has begun a good week for
normal people.  And by normal, I mean the hard working, get up
every morning and do something useful people.  They may not
be in love with what they do, but they do it because they are good
parents, spouses, children, church members, etcetera and etceteree.

Now for the overpaid, arrogant and not too nice people, this week
has not started off so good: 

1.  Serena Williams lost a tennis match at the French Open.  Guess
she is  out.  Normal people say, who cares?  These people who make
a job of playing sports, ooohh, they have it so hard.  Millions and
millions of dollars for hitting a tennis ball.  Go figure. So you lost,
get over it.  Nobody can win all the time.  You kids make more in
a year than normal working people do in a lifetime. 

2.  The now defunct law firm, Dewey & Leboeuf went under and
some real overpaid attorneys lost their situations.  Good.  Who cares?
Here again, arrogant, overpaid lawyers, overcharging clients, most
of the clients being other arrogant overpaid stuffed shirts, these poor
suckers are out of work.  Good, who cares?  While the normal people
are working for between 200 and 800 a week, before taxes, some of
these nitwits at Dewey & Lestupid were making that in an hour, and
double billing at that.  Hahaha -- go get a real job where you build
up instead of tear down.  Again, normal people don't care.  Well,
actually they're happy.  Schnadenfreude,  ha ha, ha ha, good, who

3.   Facebook IPO -- who cares?  You think you can be a billionaire
and make a thousand millionaires by ruining lives across the county
and around the world.  Face it -- Facebook is the devil.  The normal
people who actually work for a living and don't have time to list
their bathroom breaks, stool samples and what they had on their
big mac, plus a daily update of pics of the grandkids, don't have time
for that nonsense, they are too busy working.  So there was fraud
and inside info and all those overpaid, arrogant kids are losing money--
who cares?  We hope all of you lose all of it.

4.  Social media -- 40% of users are thieves and scammers.  LOL,
LMAO.  Likejackers, lifejackers and hackers.  Who cares?  Stop
the insanity and learn to talk to adults, like adults.  Learn to run
a business, face to face, with real customers.  Take some time to
learn what customer service really is.  You know, that's where you
are actually, sincerely nice to normal people.

5.  Oh yeah, one more stuffed shirt, with ketchup on his tie --
John Kerry.  Swiftboating again, eh?  Seems he got him a new
wittle yatchet, $7,000,000 dollars he paid, he did.  Can't afford
to pay taxes in Massachesetts, so he moved it to Rhode Island.
What do these overpaid, arrogant, stuffed shirt think with?
Normal people hope his boat gets blown out to sea, with him
in it.  Seven million dollars, to a working couple living the
domestic life, happy children and a pretty wife, cocker spaniel
always havin'puppies -- John Kerry-- man up and pay your

I guess this Barry Economy is hard on the arrogant, overpaid,
loud, selfish, pompous jackasses in our society too.  Good-
who cares?

Refs Beat Celtics, 93-79

Four times, as the Celtics began a run, phantom technical fouls were called. Each stopped Boston's momentum, causing a burst in scoring by the Heat, and ultimately their victory. I like neither Boston nor Miami, but to say that the Heat were not heavily favored by the referees in tonight's basketball game would be absurd.

Stan Van Gundy repeatedly bashed the officials, saying some of their calls should not even be made "in high school." Alas, they occurred in the Eastern Conference Finals.

The very same tone was set in the Heat's game 1 matchup against the New York Knicks several weeks ago. Technical fouls out of thin air, destruction of the away team's runs, and a resultant win by the Heat. Either the refs are on the take or they all had an absolutely atrocious game, at the exact same time as the Knicks-Heat series, with the same result.

Jon Meacham: Draft Insanity

So, on this Memorial Day, the question had to be asked: should the military draft that hasn't existed in four decades be reinstated?

According to Time Magazine's Jon Meacham, that would be a yes. For the primary reason that if our military was based on the draft, as it was during Vietnam, citizen involvement would increase in our war decision making, and thus the lingering conflicts in the Middle East would have turned out quite differently.

Ehhh, probably not Jon.

Even with a majority of citizens actively opposing the Vietnam War, with full support from Democrat representatives in Congress, didn't cause that conflict to slow down for almost two presidential terms. And considering the War on Terror has received better support over the years, especially in 2004 when we re-elected President Bush based on his war record, it would not have impacted our eventual victory in Iraq.

The only thing that would have resembled Vietnam would be liberals protesting the draft and some of them encouraging draftees to flee the country to Canada, which would reignite another political fight, which I'm sure Mr. Meacham would dread, over the administration (a Republican one no less) taking young men from their homes to die 10,000 miles overseas...

Yeah, I'll pass on that.

Our all-volunteer military is working out just fine, as there is no shortage of young men and women willing to serve in our armed forces, and even the existance of a draft likely wouldn't have impacted our War on Terror at all, since most Americans believe the fight if justified for one reason or another.

Mr. Meacham, you are insane.

What say you?
How  Barry  Can  Win  in  November

I probably should not offer this advice, except for something
Bill Shakespeare said the other day at the mall.  He was in
town shopping for a new silk shirt when he just blurted out:
"Many  a  truth  is  spoken  in jest."  I think he stole that line
from Chris Marlowe's girlfriend, but there you have it.

What is not in jest is this preface.  If this advice is followed
by that smarmy group of swarthy infidels in Chicago, the
stock to buy before Barry destroys free enterprise in America
is -- Cardboard.  If Barry wins, thats what we'll all be living
in, that is, until we run out of clean drinking water, cat food
and ammunition.  But, I digress.

What follows is a list for the Composite-in-Chiefs main dealer
in lies, Axelrod.  He can run this by Barry after the next golf
date, hoops pick-up exercise, or on the upcoming vacation.
They haven't had one now for what, three weeks?

1.     Stop lying.  This one does not need much explaining.
Barry, everytime you open your mouth, you lie.  Even the
Democrats know it.  Especially the gun and religion clingers
know it.  Stop the pathological lying, if you can.

2.     Stop campaigning.  All you have done your entire
miserable political life is campaign.  Stop it.  Your numbers
were better before you started this campaign disaster.  But
then if you follow rule number one, you would have no
campaign.  Stop the stupid campaign, it is not working.

3.     Stop fighting the Constitution.  Barry, the United
States Constitution was written while your Indonesian/
Kenyan ancestors were still running from dragons.  What -
you think with your so-called gonja permeated education
you have the intellectual weight to ignore the Constitution?
What is wrong with you?  What have you been smoking?
Hey, I know someone about your age who smoked weed
all his life too.  Know what du-u-ude, it catches up with you
in your fifties.  Yeah m-a-a-a-n, you might want to stop
that too.

4.  Stop the baby killing.  We all know what the first
bill you signed was for more abortions around the world.
You think the Creator of Life is going to let that one
go?  Do something about it now, while you still can
work a Mont Blanc Pen.

5.  Stop Mis-Quoting the Bible.  You think because you
claim to be president of this little speck of earth, you can
make the Bible read that God is really for homosexual
marriage?   Barry, Sodom and Gomorrah called, they
want you to run for mayor.

6.  Stop with the vacations.  Barry, you haven't done
one constructive thing since you've been squatting in
the Casa Blanca.  Que Pasa?  The American people
are doing the Connie Francis thing at home this year.
Who do you think you are? 

7.  Stop the incessant grinning.  You look like the
village idiot.  The rest of the leaders in the world,
weighted down with a more than somber responsibility
actually look serious.  But then I guess too much weed
will do that to one.

8.  Stop the insane publicity.  Oprah is right, Michelle
is wrong.  You are over-exposed.  A person in your
position who keeps his face plastered everywhere only
has one direction, remember:  pride goeth before a fall.

Summarizing:   just stop doing everything, it will make
the next few months easier on all of us.

Please pass along to the nitwits in Chicago...

Don't Miss Your Chance to Crash Obama's Feedback Page

The Obama campaign machine is ramping up, after going six consecutive years without taking a break. Today, they are offering people the opportunity to voice their feedback on the President's job performance. Obviously, they've only sent this email to supporters. However, we've got the link for anyone to voice their real opinion.

Tired of Obama's blame and hype? Tired of his lies and debt? Crash Obama's feedback page and let them know the truth. The best part is that they actually have text boxes where you can enter your own opinions instead of mindlessly choosing between Obama's "accomplishments."

So, go to this site right now to give feedback: Share Your Feedback.
Inflate my ego, please
Just a word of warning, however. As always, Obama's website has some creepy terms of use. One of the submission terms is that you give Obama for America "perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, sublicensable, royalty free license to publish, reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, edit, modify, create derivative works of and otherwise use the Submissions in any manner or media." (Emphasis mine).

Unsurprisingly, the Obama campaign reserves the right to "edit" and "modify" your words, which means you can write "Obama is the worst President in my lifetime," and they can quote you as writing, "Obama is the greatest President ever."

Sunday Morning Bible Story

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and
the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything
made that was made.  In him was life, and the life was the light
of men.              John 1:1-4

There is a greater hoax in world culture today than global warming.

It is the hoax that nothing created everything.  It is the hoax that
billions of years ago, there was a big bang and out of nothing came
stuff.  Whatever.  And how do we know this?   Because several
guys and gals have studied dead men's bones, and arranged them
in order, from the shortest to the tallest.  Voila -- ergo -- there is
no God. 

The problem in the world today is not politics, it is theology.  Once
man has established that there is no God, it is a simple step to
live in the non-reality that there is no right and wrong, no morality
to keep, no rules to obey, nothing to do but lie, kill and steal in a
finite quest for power.  Good luck with that, it don't last forever.

Theology is the study of God.  The study of God must begin with
the written revelation delivered by God to a world which reads.

So we have the Bible, and it says that "in the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God."  It
doesn't take a mental giant to admit that God was God in the
begining.  What beginning?  Who knows?  This beginning had
to pre-date Genesis 1:1.   The point is that in this beginning,
God was there and the Son of God was there, already, before
the beginning.  The funny thing is, a first grader can accept
that as eternal truth.  It takes an adult with no concept of faith
to deny that.

Then the passage says that "All things were made by Him,"
then just to make sure those with faith could understand,
the apostle John repeats the truth, "without him was not
anything made that was made."  H-e-l-l-o  --pretty simple,

God created the world and all things in it.  The Son of God,
Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world
was there in the beginning, and was God, in the beginning,
and still is, BTW. 

I don't really think it is creation which makes men think
and say there is no God.  It is verse four which they cannot
accept:  "In him was life, and the life was the light of men."
If God is God, If Jesus is God, If the Holy Spirit is God,
the great Three in One, the same in substance, equal in
power and glory --  that means that as Creator, this great
all-powerful God has dominion over all things and all men.

The evolutionary disbelief in God is fairly recent, say under
two hundred years old.  Even in the Old Testament, when
men hated God, and rebelled against him, they still knew
he existed.  In the New Testament, when they hated Christ,
they believed that God did exist. 

Not now though, we have a telescope, we have a micro-
scope, we are so smart, we think.  Seriously?  Man is all
powerful, right?  Try holding your breath for ten minutes,
let me know how that one works out. 

The truth is, God made the world and all things in it,
and that requires that we bow to him, and worship him,
and declare him to be a King over us.  And that is the
final question, and it takes the faith of a child to believe

What did Jesus say, oh yeah, I remember now:  he said,
"Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter
the kingdom of heaven."

Free Thinkers on Parade

The setup:  My local newspaper is the Northwest Arkansas Times.  Although it is an excellent local paper and pretty good regional paper, it is an awful paper to get state, national, and world news.  The Times has a number of local writers on the opinion page, most of them leaning left.  As such, I find most of these columns funny, although the large majority of them are not meant to be so.

But there is one columnist who is intentionally funny, and largely succeeds.  Bob Caudle writes once a week about mostly local stories, and  is pretty irreverent.   Recently, he wrote a column that was pretty awesome if it is true.

I say if it is true because some of the content within it smells a bit like a put-on.  I would link to the column itself, but the Times only keeps articles for free online for one week.  After that one week, it will then put the article in the archives and charge a fee for you to access it.  It's a stupid system, I think, but nobody consulted me on its implementation, so what I think is irrelevant.

So, I will just reproduce it here, so that I can do some real liberal mocking afterward.

Oh, brothers and sisters, there’s foul news afoot. Some bunch of blasphemous Yankees from the North (as opposed to Yankees from the South) are trying to take away our God-given rights to pray and pass out Bibles.
A group from Madison, Wis., calling itself the Freedom From Religion Foundation, has attacked the mayors in Rogers and Springdale for participating in the National Day of Prayer.
The anti-religion group also claims it forced the Rogers School District to quit letting the Gideons hand out Bibles at Bellview Elementary School.
You know, I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels with a Gideon Bible in the drawer. That family must be bigger than the Duggars.
Oh, by the way, the foundation sells T-shirts that read, “This is what an atheist looks like” that will cost you $20.
A T-shirt that reads “Village Atheist” will run you $22 - obviously they don’t charge by the letter.
They also have a spot on the website asking for donations and reminding readers the donations are tax-deductible.
Apparently, the group hates everything about churches except for passing the collection plate.
The foundation also brags about its accomplishments - and that word is used loosely - on its website: “FFRF won a historic federal court decision declaring the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional in 2010.
“In this instance, the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience,” wrote U.S.
District Judge Barbara Crabb, Madison, Wis. An appeals court in 2011 threw the case out on standing (not the merits), but FFRF continues to pursue two challenges of gubernatorial prayer proclamations in Colorado and Arizona.”
The King James translation of that statement is the foundation lost, but is still throwing money away.
Anyway, the foundation contacted the offices of Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse and Rogers Mayor Greg Hines about their offices sponsoring “prayer breakfasts” May 3 as part of the National Day of Prayer.
The Yankees might have a point in that officials with the two cities probably shouldn’t have promoted the event and sold tickets through the mayors’ offices.
Sprouse and Hines may never meet over a chess board, smoking pipes during a Mensa Club meeting, but they’re usually smart enough to stay within the law.
“We are shocked at the bad manners of these mayors who align themselves with events advertised as ‘Christian evangelicals need only apply.’ This kind of meddling in religion and promotion of one religion over another is what one would expect in a theocracy, not in our secular republic,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor, a foundation co-founder.
For the record, the First Amendment to the Constitution says nothing about a separation of church and state. That phrase came later in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson.
And no one is forcing anyone to participate in the National Day of Prayer.
If you don’t want to go - don’t go.
But the best response to the Yankee atheists perhaps came from Rogers city attorney Ben Lipscomb, who answered stupid with stupid.
Lipscomb replied to the foundation.
This is what he wrote to Ken Earl, the foundation’s law clerk:
“As a graduate of East St. Louis, Illinois College of Law and Sheet Metal Work, I too have heard of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
I distinctly remember class that day, because the professor not only covered the entire First Ten Amendments to the United States Constitution (I think he called them the Bill of Rights, or something like that), but low hydrogen arc welding as well.
And in my humble opinion (which, by the way is the only one that counts, being that I am the City Attorney) the City’s participation in, as well as the planning of, the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast, does NOT, in fact, violate the sacred document in question.
With Warmest Personal Regards,
Ben Lipscomb
Rogers City Attorney and Welder”
Now, who can argue with that?
Opinion, Pages 5 on 05/19/2012

  Now, I don't care who you are, that's a great response right there.  It's humorous and legally sound at the same time.  And it is real, too.

So, what happened after Bob's column ran in the paper?  Did you say that the tolerant atheists went ape-poopy about it?  If you did, you are 100% correct!

Which leads me to this, the greatest kook posting I've ever seen.

And the answers to your next three questions are yes, yes, and yes.

Yes, this really is untouched in any way, shape, or form.  If you go to the web page, you will see it just as you see it here.  Yes, he is being serious.  And yes, he really is this clueless and idiotic and pompous all the time.

FayettevilleFreeThinker believes that he is this font of information, and I can count on him to come through with material that I can use to mock and belittle liberals if I'm ever low on material.  (By the way, have you ever noticed that so-called freethinkers always have the same beliefs as other freethinkers?  Must be a coincidence.)

Now, my larger point here is that committed atheists will try anything to remove religion from what they consider to be a society that doesn't need it.  You see that in Caudle's column above, in which the Freedom From Religion Foundation tried to bully into not participating in the National Day of Prayer.  To the Rogers City Attorney Ben Lipscomb's credit, he told them to go soak their heads.

For a foundation that prides itself on using reason, it sure didn't use reason to sway others to their point of view.  It instead tried to bully and threaten others to see their point of view.

Is there a rational position that the FFRF can advance to convince others to join them?  Doesn't appear to be.  Why doesn't FFRF do so?  Maybe one of these jeniuses can explain that.

(If you think there is a misspelling in this post, you just might be a freethinker.)

Egyptian Election Results in "Nightmare Scenario"

Luckily, according to Barack Obama, the Muslim Brotherhood has no support in Egypt. You know, outside of their candidate receiving the most votes for President. From the Guardian:
Egypt looks set for weeks of tension and uncertainty after the first round of its landmark presidential election produced a runoff between the candidate backed by the powerful Muslim Brotherhood and a former general who is seen as a hangover from the regime of the deposed Hosni Mubarak.

In what many described as a "nightmare scenario" that will mean a polarised and possibly violent second round, Mohammed Morsi of the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party polled around 26% in the two-day first round. Ahmed Shafiq, Mubarak's last prime minister, came second with 23% when 90% of the votes had been counted.

Amr Moussa, the former head of the Arab League, who tried to capture the centre ground, was knocked out. Late on Friday there was only a slight chance that the final picture would change when votes for Cairo and Giza were in.

Turnout was said to be around 40% of the 51m-strong electorate. Official results are yet to be published but a combination of exit polls, centrally collected data and reporting by the candidates appeared to confirm a dramatic runoff that many supporters of the revolution consider a catastrophic outcome. "It feels as if the revolution never took place," lamented a despondent George Ishaq, a founder of the leftwing Kifaya Party.

The No Growth Zero Sum Pie

Has America reached the stage where we all stand in a circle and take turns holding a constantly shrinking dollar?

If our Dear Leader and the Daley led Outfit wins re-election next year perhaps a few more people will see the hand writing on the wall.  Though the Constitution is undeniably the greatest work to come from the hand of man, though it provided the safe haven of freedom for generations it is today a dead letter.  If after the coming November election the Democrats tax storm sweeps us down the economic drain and inflation kicks in those dazed by the success of the Chicago system in re-electing the first anti-American president then the silent majority will be ready to hear the watchmen on the walls. 

We have sold our birthright for a bowl of entitlements.  We have stood silently by while corrupt politicians have looted our posterity of opportunity and hope.  We have allowed our Federal Government to assume powers never delegated to them by the Constitution.  We have spent the revenues of the future for a present that no longer resembles the last best hope of mankind.  We have followed the pipers from the Land of the free and the home of the brave onto the road to serfdom and we are about to learn that he who pays the piper calls the tune.

While our nation wallows in the Great Recession which our Progressive leaders and their water boys in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media keep trying to tell us is over China keeps eating our lunch.  Starting with NAFTA both Democrats and Republicans have agreed to free trade deals that aren’t free and have suppressed our trade.  For these economic geniuses who think they can centrally plan the largest economy in the history of the world let me spell this out slowly and clearly:

·         If you buy more than you sell you have a negative balance of trade

·         If you spend more than you make you eventually go bankrupt


·         Everyone else except you seems to know these two simple truths.

Maybe our economic geniuses should try Economics 101.  They want us to accept that America has become a no growth zero sum pie.  It doesn’t fit their game plan to take their foot off the throat of the economy.  If they did it would roar to life as the liberty and opportunity which is our heritage, and once again prove that free people making free choices is the best way to grow the pie and enrich the people.

A new book calls President Obama an amateur, and at first glance he may appear to be one.  However he does not stand alone.  He is the front man for a triumphant Progressive Movement which has successfully implemented a strategy that has taken more than a century to mature.  Starting in the 1890s they set their sights on education capturing the universities and then training generations of teachers, journalists, and lawyers.  These people have infiltrated every aspect of our lives dumbing down successive generations while Progressive politicians have worked at getting a majority of the voters addicted to government handouts.  Then in the1960s the Cloward and Piven Strategy was embraced as a way to spend the country into oblivion so that it could be remade in a Progressive image.  Step by step, inch by inch, line upon line these webs have been woven, and as the average American twists and turns trying to find some avenue of escape from the shabby future these want to be commissars have planned, all they see is the party line on the major networks telling them everything is coming up roses. 

It is time to WAKE UP!  It is time to prepare as if the world we have known will end and expect major dislocations in every aspect of life.  Even an overwhelming defeat for President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of their fellow travelers will only mean this train wreck is slowing down.  The so-called draconian Ryan Budget never gets to a balanced budget for 40 or 50 years.  More than 30 years out the national debt is still growing.  Projections show that by 2025 the interest on the debt alone will begin to consume any hope of getting out of the trick bag they have spent us in to.  Our elected leaders have no plan to reverse the decline. They merely want to manage it in a more orderly fashion.

Each of us must decide what is most important.  Each of us must either prepare for the coming contraction or hit the wall like a crash dummy. 

Personally I have decided that family is more important than career, food is more important than convenience, and honor is more important than status.   I have left the tenured halls and headed for the hills.  I have abandoned friends of many years to be surrounded by family.  I have embraced the soil to grow my own food. In other words, I believe I have been to the top of the mountain, I have seen what is coming, and I have taken my own advice.

When I was the Dean of a School of Christian Ministries I used to tell my students to prepare as if there was no Holy Spirit and preach as if there were no notes.  Today I advise my readers, prepare as if the America we have known and loved is about to be transformed before our eyes into a social democracy of European proportions, and live as if there is still hope.

For as long as we believe there is still hope we will not be hopeless. 

So we come to the ultimate message: hope in Christ and you will never be disappointed.  All things must pass and only those things done in Christ will last.  All empires fall.  It is our place in History to watch the slow motion fall of a mighty empire: Western Civilization. But if we hold on to what is true, if we stand for what we believe, though a thousand fall on our right and ten thousand fall on our left it will not come upon us.
