Well It's Over ..

The election results have come in. It's bitter, no lie.

There are few times in my life that I have ever been supremely disappointed in the American public. Today is one of those days.

When I think of the average American voter all I can picture is this ..

The public has ignored the lies Barry and Smiley Joe have perpetuated, blocked out the poor policy decisions, overlooked the shortcomings of the entire administration. The media, as always, has covered for them. I know smart people, I am giving a pretty wide berth on this one, that don't get what is going on in our country and it just makes me shake my head and wonder about them.

Calls for unity and working together are being made by Barry and the boys. Bah!

If there was any chance of working together it would've happened in the last 4 years. Liberals don't want to work together. They want to warp the Republic we have into a socialistic ghost where few have power and most suck at the government teat to subsist.

It isn't time for Conservatives to compromise. It's time to dig in and protect the People from themselves. The useful idiots that voted left don't know any better. It's pathetic actually. I feel sorry for them.

Time to go back to work and figure out how to explain to people the benefits of more freedom vs. less .. of less government instead of more .. of opportunity vs. dependency .. it's a long road. The battlefront is quiet today but the war is just over the next hill.

Peace

I Figured Out The Debate Strategy!

I have never claimed to be brilliant. I do say I'm never wrong. Both of those may be shades of the truth actually.

So in this case I'm a little slow, but accurate.

The Vice Presidential debate tonight was much different than the Presidential debate. I know you agree. The debaters sat instead of stood. They were on different sides of the "stage". The questions asked were a little different. Similar issues were raised but not entirely. I suppose it was supposed to seem more relaxed.

The environment was anything but relaxed. It was a bit more combative thanks to Smiley Joe. And the condescension was palpable. And it finally registered with me what Barry was doing on stage the other night.

Smiley had the audacity to be disdainful .. the entire time. That was the emotion he was displaying and he does it pretty well. It hit me that was what Barry was doing. Everyone criticized Barry for his 'smirking' and head shaking. It wasn't Presidential behavior so people took it wrong. It seemed out of place. Smiley displayed his disdain as a badge. He wore it proudly. Barry was also being disdainful is his own way. That was what people saw and didn't understand.

Mitt Romney is gentleman as is his running mate Paul Ryan. They are men of character and accomplishment. They were able to display their strong character in the debates through their actions.

Barry and Smiley also showed their character, or lack thereof, through their displays of disdain. This should concern the American people immensely. Men that don't display respect on the political stage have no business being there. They can't get the job done.

How can men without respect for another work together to lead our country is the right direction. The answer is they categorically cannot.

The hallmark for the current administration, and the Democrats is general, is disdain. That's why we are without a budget. The Democrats won't truly reach across the aisle and work with Republicans to come to agreement on anything of value.

I think the entire country has seen who should be the next President in these two debates. The choice is clear. Vote for men of character who will reach out across the aisle and bring our great country into a new era of expansion.

Vote Romney and Ryan in November. The alternative isn't pretty. You know I'm not wrong.

To Barack Obama - You get an F

Since when is "Incomplete" an actual grade?

I understand you have to make it sound good. Like the US is a work in progress and you are still working on it. I get that. The marketing machine has to get you elected again so you can 'finish up'.

But this isn't a school project. This is about the US People. We don't want sound bites. We want leadership that set us on a course for prosperity. A rising tide raises all ships.


We are tired of debt spinning out of control. Healthcare is imploding around this new law. Costs of doing business in every sector in this country are rising because of government regulation. Illegal immigration isn't fixed. The economy is a sluggish pack mule. Energy prices are too high. The list goes on so far I get weary thinking about it.

You are really good at spinning words, wordsmithing, twisting words to meet your needs. It's a talent. With all the failures of your administration you've got to figure out a way to keep votes.

I'd like you to know that we see through your words. We know how badly you've done. You aren't going to get the same people to vote for you this year. Many people were remorseful right after the election that voted for you then. Your marketing machine with the HOPE slogan did it's thing.

I can only HOPE that enough people truly see what's happening and decide to vote for prosperity.

As a voter I get to grade you too. You get an "F".

Excommunicate Catholic Democrats and put Sandra Fluke on a Deserted Island

I am a Catholic man. I regard all life from conception to natural death as sacred.

I don't apologize for it. In fact if you listened to Sandra Fluke at the Democratic National Convention I would be what she called 'extreme' and 'bigoted'.

Funny, but I don't feel like that. I just feel like it is the right (correct) and moral thing to do. There is no malice towards anyone because I hold that belief. Just the opposite in fact. It's the polar opposite of malice.

Sure, there are some people I feel deserve to be killed out there. But, as an obedient Catholic, I have to put aside that highly emotionally charged judgement. I must remember that the Sanctity of Life is more important than my own twisted desire for justice.

The Catholic folks that don't realize that the Sanctity of Life trumps any pro-abortion argument, AND voted for people that support it and are working towards making it happen, should be excommunicated.

With whom does the ultimate responsibility lie for a public servant being in position to make a decision? The voters of course. A public servant, at least today in our Republic, can't assume power of their own volition. They must be voted into office, for better or worse.

Any Catholic who is pro-abortion or voted for a public servant who supports abortion, who acts to support abortion, or plainly does not renounce a pro-abortion stance should no longer be allowed to be part of the Church.

Voting. For someone else. That's harmless. Right? Not agreeing with major tenets of your faith .. that's okay .. right?

Wrong! Voting is the action, the mechanism, that empowers someone to act on yours and others' behalf, whether or not in their best interest. The ultimate responsibility lies with you the voter. That does not absolve the public servants in this either. If they are Catholic and are pro-abortion that is an even stronger case for excommunication. The public servant has the ability to act in a way that they believe to be correct. No matter the consequences.

God does not allow for disagreement. There are no partial abortions. It's an on/off switch. Agree or you are not a Catholic, even if you lie to yourself and others that you are. And it IS a LIE.

I call on ALL US Catholics to vote against anyone that does not hold the Sanctity of Life dear. You can tell if they qualify by their actions. If you do not vote that way then I call on the US Council of Catholic Bishops to excommunicate you for your grievous personal affront to human life.

Plain and simple. Do the right thing or face the consequences.

Sandra Fluke is lucky she isn't Catholic. She would be top of the list when I petition the US Bishops. Since she isn't I'd settle for sticking that extremist bigot on a deserted island. I'd give her fishing pole and make sure there were some coconut trees at least.

Ooops! There's that emotionally charged judgment again!

From Heritage: The Danger of Aritcle 82 and Obama's latest treaty

From Heritage Morning Bell

Mike Brownfield of Heritage writes the above this morning. Reagan refused to sign the LOST treaty in 1982 with good reason.

I think everyone should read this and be aware of what is brewing in Washington. It's not good.

Feel free to pass it on, make your voice heard, object loudly!

Obamacare Visits The Nine

So today is the day, the start of several days actually, for the Obamacare Supreme Court Appearance.

All 9 justices, no recusals, will be present for arguments over the next three days. So even though Kagan is firmly in favor of the law (you can't argue she isn't) she hasn't had to recuse herself. That screams conflict of interest, foul play, red flag, penalty box, do not pass go do not collect $200! How can there be no mechanism for forcing a justice to get out of the way when they are so completely biased? Appalling.

I lay the blame for that squarely at the feet of Congress for confirming her in the first place. She has the worst resume of any justice on the court and she still made it there. Politics sucks.

Today, the Court will hear 90 minutes of argument on whether a federal tax law bars any challenge to the mandate requiring all individuals to purchase or obtain health insurance. Tomorrow, the Court will hear two hours of argument on the main event: the constitutionality of the individual insurance mandate that requires all Americans to buy a health insurance policy or be subject to a penalty imposed by the IRS. Then early Wednesday the Court will hear 90 minutes of argument on the issue of severability: can any part of the ObamaCare Act survive if the Court were to strike down the individual insurance mandate or any other part of the law. Finally, Wednesday afternoon the Court will hear a final hour of argument examining the constitutionality of ObamaCare's expansion of the federal Medicaid program

The supporting arguments are going to be one huge pile of crap to wade through. The White House et al have surely prepared the best arguments they can to try and prove the government has the power to do anything it wants, of course in the 'best interests' of the people.

Yeah .. right. Hope the coffee pots are working.

I think prayers are in order. Dear Lord, I pray that the Constitution of the US is upheld, that the Supremes are not swayed by their conscience but follow the letter and ORIGINAL intent of law. And finally that the rule of law is upheld. Amen.

All I have to say is health care isn't a right. Just like food is not a right. You better find a way to provide it for yourself or you won't be around too long. But it is still your OWN responsibility and choice to do so or not. No one else.

Gun Owner's Rights

I have to make a comment about gun owner rights. I get legal alert emails from the NRA so I can stay informed on what's going on today in that particular arena and the email I read this morning got my back up.

I firmly believe in free exercise of a right, no matter which, on the grounds that it is a right and if someone so chooses they may exercise it. Neither you nor I need to provide anyone else a reason. That is the nature of a right. Logically it follows that means the negative side of exercising a right is not limiting it, it simply is choosing to NOT exercise it. It's an on/off switch, not a thermometer.

Here's an excerpt from today's NRA email:
Unquestionably the hottest issue in Second Amendment litigation today is whether the Second Amendment protects a right to carry firearms outside the home for personal protection—and if so, what might be the limits on that right. Until recently, far too many courts have wrongly claimed that because the Supreme Court’s decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago only struck down bans on handgun possession in the home, that’s all there is to the Second Amendment.
Now, there are signs that this resistance is weakening. In a big win for gun owners’ rights in Maryland, on March 5, a federal judge ruled in the case of Woollard v. Sheridan that a key provision of the state’s gun laws is unconstitutional.  Judge Benson Everett Legg declared that Maryland's requirement for a "good and substantial reason" to obtain a concealed-carry permit violates the Second Amendment protection of the right to keep and bear arms. Though this is not an NRA-funded case, both the result and the reasoning give hope for future progress on the issue.
"The Court finds that the right to bear arms is not limited to the home," Judge Legg wrote in his 23-page ruling. "In addition to self-defense, the right was also understood to allow for militia membership and hunting. To secure these rights, the Second Amendment’s protections must extend beyond the home: neither hunting nor militia training is a household activity, and 'self-defense has to take place wherever [a] person happens to be.'’'
Judge Legg added, "A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and substantial reason' why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right's existence is all the reason he needs."
Good job Ludge Legg! That is exactly the type of logic that should be applied in this, and any other rights exercise situation.

Maryland's laws currently allow the state to deny a permit if the requester can't produce evidence "to support apprehended fear (copies of police reports for assaults, threats, harassments, or stalking). So if there is no evidence of a 'current threat' the state can stop you from protecting yourself in public. 
So let me get this straight. I have to wait to be threatened to be able to carry a handgun? Are you kidding? What if I need to protect myself before that permit comes through? Am I supposed to submit and be a victim until I can show that I am one?

Geez I'm glad some folks in Maryland challenged this.

Now of course Maryland has already filed a motion to find out if Legg intends to file an injunction to prevent Maryland from enforcing current law. Hopefully Legg follows through and files that injunction.
Marylandites get ready for unrestricted legal possession on handguns outside the home finally!

Obamacare demystified - video style

"What is to be the consequence, in case the Congress shall misconstrue this part [the necessary and proper clause] of the Constitution and exercise powers not warranted by its true meaning, I answer the same as if they should misconstrue or enlarge any other power vested in them ... the success of the usurpation will depend on the executive and judiciary departments, which are to expound and give effect to the legislative acts; and in a last resort a remedy must be obtained from the people, who can by the elections of more faithful representatives, annul the acts of the usurpers." --James Madison, Federalist No. 44, 1788

Whenever I think of Obamacare this is the statement that comes to mind. Madison makes it plain that if our leaders get to big for their britches and legislate beyond the power granted them in the Constitution then we as a people have the power and ability to fix it. Vote out all the offenders and bring in responsible legislators to strike down the offending legislation.

We talked to Dr. Jill Vecchio last year about Obamacare and it's effects on the health industry. She now has a series of videos that address the issues of this legislation.

Check out her channel here.

In fact .. here is the first video .. http://youtu.be/U_O7XV3OpmU.

Take the time to understand what is wrong with Obamacare and WHY it needs to go. Why couldn't Hillary Clinton get universal health care passed? Nobody wanted that piece of junk. Nobody needs the current piece of junk either. It's just the majority currently doesn't care what folks want. They want more control of you, the people, and the only way to get it is to ram so much legislation down your craw you can't breath right. That way you can't complain loud enough.

Folks, get out there in November and take this country back. Vote out anyone who is in favor of big government. THEY all need to go.

Big government cripples our economy, minimizes opportunity, crushes freedom. There's no 2 ways about it.

Make a real change this year. Please.
