What Are Those Senators Doing?

"I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts," stated Will Rogers.

Consider Senator John Kerry, in the midst of a spiraling national debt, social security and medicare crisis, decided to use his position for more important things: to lash out against the NFL Newtwork and demand that the nation be able to watch his beloved Patriots for free across the nation.

Lets see. Social security, medicare, medicaid, exploding debt, sinking dollar, free trade, war on terror, broken borders- not enough to concentrate on apparently. How dare we ask the Senator to concentrate on America's minor issues. After all, what the Senator surely ought to be concentrating on is holding a press conference condemning the NFL Network and demanding that other free stations carry his favorite football team's last game of the season?

Mark Twain quipped, "Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."

How idiotic is the following?

Hard-working Americans face a Congress unrelenting in their pursuit to infringe upon the people's rights. Just today the Congress chose to withhold returning refunds to American citizens for an extra thirty days. Why? To draw interest upon the money that is not theirs, of course.

Since when does the Congress of the United States have the right to withhold the extra money you pay to government that belongs to you?

And of course, government has additional plans for your life that involves your bedroom. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Ted Kennedy have slipped new legislation in to be signed by President Bush. Mercury-laden lightbulbs must, by law, be phased into the homes of all Americans. You wanted the old Thomas Edison lightbulbs? Too bad- its illegal. The liberals want an energy efficient nation. So you are now required to fit mercury laden bulbs in your homes. When they break, call your local environmental company. For only $2000, they will clean up the mess, you aren't supposed to touch.

Barry Goldwater stated, "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution........And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents ``interests,'' I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can."

It was Patrick Henry who cried, "Give me liberty or give me death!"

Are we not so sure that a swath of Americans including elected officials would rephrase the Patrick Henry Doctrine:

"Give me entitlement or someone else will!!!"

Global Warming Jihad

"Popular opinion is the greatest lie in the world," declared Thomas Carlyle.

Enter Al Gore. A privliged Senator's son, a former Vice President, a Global Warming Jihadist, and of course - a Nobel Peace Prize winning statesman right next to Yasser Arafat, who now more than ever -

Mr. Gore has a popular opinion.

This superstar global doomsayer has put on his green cape traveling the world preaching global jihad against industrialism. It is possible that no man today will effect such a profound change in politics, religion, and economics since Einstein's Manhattan Project or Darwin's Theory of Evolution, or Guttenberg's printing press. And thats after losing his presidential bid!

Yet, it is rather difficult to buy the whole enchilada that the sky is falling, the earth is crumbling, and mankind is nearly beyond a point of no return unless he acts now to save himself. Isn't this Al Gore's message to America? And to the world?

An excerpt of an interview with Grist Magazine in May 2006, this caped green crusader provides an answer:

"In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis."

An over-representation of the facts? This is what we get from Al, the environmentalist? That maybe we aren't in a heap of trouble yet- but why wait to get there when we can yell fire in a crowded theater where the Americans are watching their movie? So apparently lying to the American people; not telling them the version of the story that is most accurate is justifiable for personal political gain???

A man's words is the test of his character. Note how often this global crusader of Green Jihad has exaggerated or outright lied through his career, according to The Free Republic: shows an amusing 16 lies or exaggerations are tied to this green caped crusader of global warming.

What's the point of dredging up a closet full of old bones?

Because the famous Green Caped Crusader is famous for not leveling with public!

Gore may have written "An Inconvenient Truth". But the real "inconvenient truth" occurs when Gore's test of character is quesitoned concerning his honesty. Superman's weakness was cryptonite. Gore, the green caped craseder's cryptonite is his imaginative fabrications that have come so naturally over the years.

Whether it was Love Canal, creating the internet, or the Buddhist fundraising scandal, trusting Gore is like trusting "Slick Willie" to honor Hillary all the days of his life. Does anyone believe that Gore can honor the truth to a greater degree than his former boss can honor Hillary?

Strange as it may sound, when Gore was just Vice President we were OK. But now as the international coronated king of Jihad against Carbon Emissions, the world has panicked. The effect may well be felt in our wallets with significantly higher taxes.

Single-handedly Al Gore has propelled the world of nations to act upon the desperate global warming issue whether or not the facts support action. A world hero, Gore, has taken the mantle to mock and taunt the Bush administration's perceived failture to act to save the world from mankind. The Green Goracle™, never one to miss a chance to blame the United States in general and George Bush in particular for just about anything, told the delegates that the U.S. was “principally responsible for obstructing progress here in Bali.” ( 12/23/07)

So what are we to do with a former Vice President who has a Messianic Complex to save Americans and the world from global warming? What can we do? Let the foolish dribble their opinions; let the facts illuminate the truth. In thirty years Gore may have found a new cause: global cooling???

Fighting A Christless Christmas

In the fourth century A.D., the Catholic church made a big mistake. Acceding to the popular tradition that Jesus Christ had been born on December 25 and wishing to keep Christians from participating in the infamous orgies of the year-end pagan festival of Saturnalia, the Church established December 25 as the feast of the birth of Christ. Thus, for seventeen centuries, Christmas and Saturnalia have competed for the attention of the public. By now, I think we must admit that Saturnalia has won and that Christmas has been thoroughly de-Christianized.

Democrats and Religion?

Joe Biden, Democratic candidate for President of the United States, in a live debate paraphrased his church-going hymn before the American people. On stage with the other Democratic candidates, Biden's words drew utter contempt and disapproval. Electric pulses wired to Democratic voters in a FOX News polling venue caught the truth about 21st century Democrats.

Religion is off limits. Don't speak it. Don't appeal to it. The earthy modernists of FDR's enlightened 1930's party have progressed far beyond God apparently.

So who are these Democrats that so despise the words that came from Senator Biden's mouth? The ACLU, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, feminists, the Sierra Club, the NAACP, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance, the Tree Hugger Environmental Wackos, the PITA crowd, and of course NAMBLA to round of the star-studded cast of winners. Aren't these just your good old-fashioned apple pie American organizations?

Oh! Dare we forget: The newest club in town know as the God Haters of America belong here as well- right?

The mere mention of God apparently boils the blood of Blue State voters. Just ask Joe Biden. Mention Jesus and all hell breaks loose! Cross the line by quoting scripture and end up with a pink slip at the door losing your right to be a card carrying Democrat.

What would today's Democrats do with "The First Great American", Benjamin Franklin?

"God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel” –Constitutional Convention of 1787 original manuscript of this speech

Can you imagine the blowback from progressive liberals in the Democratic party hearing the first great patriot expounding on stage before the nation? Do John Jay, Samuel Adams, John Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Webster, etc... have any meaning to this hardened group of Americans other than being a bunch of dead white guys?

And what if---we were to compare patriots of old with our enlightened Democratic politicians today?

Wasn't it presidential candidate John Kerry in the 2004 election who needed a spiriutal advisor to tutor him on the religious phrases to use before the American people concerning God? Can we imagine Washington, Jefferson, or or Jay seeking a refresher course on how to speak to fellow Americans about God? Of course the spiritual advisor chosen was none other than the same lady who stood before the Supreme Court fighting to strike down religious references within our school system.
Wasn't it Howard Dean, former presidential candidate and head of the DNC, when asked what his favorite New Testatement book was provide Job as his certain answer? Maybe shades of Patrick Henry or Daniel Webster are not to be found here either?

How about lead tree hugger of the world and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore running for President in 2000 discombulating Jesus' words completely by telling his audience "where your treasure is there your heart is" as he was blathering about global warming? James Madison I'm sure would have been proud of Mr. Love Canal's command of biblical referencing.

Is it any wonder that smart Democratic strategists in early 2007 cooked up a "faith summit" scheme. Senator Clinton, John Edwards, and Barak Obama gathered to convince Americans that Republicans aren't the only ones who have faith, God, and spirituality. Somehow these Democratic candidates with a straight face wanted desperately to tell us all that they believed in God just as much as the Republican candidates did.

But questions do abound beyond their trite words-

Aren't these Democrats the ones who believe in aborting babies by the millions? What would Jesus do? Aren't these enlightened democrats the ones who defend the upright practice of gay marriage and abandon traditional marriage? Where would Jesus land on this issue?

Aren't these holy Democrats the ones that go around planting condomns, sex-education, and transgender homosexual teachings to our kids? Aren't these godly Democrats the ones who appoint liberal judges that release hardened criminals such as murderers, rapists, and pedophiles out on early release programs?

And these saintly Democrats on the 7th day- then hold a summit to tell Americans that God is on their side too!!!!

Presidential candidates may try to revive God in their own party without being tarred and feathered leaving an auditorium. But while God remians dead with most of these serious Democratic progressives, he is alive and well amongst the American people.

Unspoken in American politics is a simple rule:

Feeding the soul is as much the job of a politician as feeding the belly!!!

Obama's favorables, Huckabee's favorables, Reagan's favorables, Bush #43's favorables, Clinton's favorables, and yes - even Carter's initial success reveals that Americans look to be inspired; not lectured with policies, numbers, and charts.

Americans listen to men of faith. Democrats have starved America's soul by talking human talk instead of inspirational talk linked to God. Only when Democrats get this message will they begin to succeed drawing the American people to their side.

It was President George Washington who stated, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible."

Will it be Washington's words or the Democrat's words which will resonate with America's voters in 2008?

Huckabee: 2 Fish & 5 Loaves???

When asked how to explain his meteoric rise to frontrunner amongst the Republican heavyweight candidates for presidency including Juliani, McCain, Romney, and Thompson in Iowa, Governor Huckabee of Arkansas declared that the rise is unexplainable in natural terms. Outspent by 100 to 1, little name recognition, and no big-time supporters- these are qualities the former Governor of Arkansas is sporting.

So what exactly has turned the Republican primary race into an undecipherable slugfest?

While the Republican candidates Juliani, Romney, Thompson, and McCain scramble to decode the Huckabee mysterious rise to fame, one thing is clear:

No Republican candidate prior to Mike Huckabee's rise has captured the hopes and aspirations of the Republican base.

Pundits, experts, columnists, pollsters, and every big party machine veteran has been in the business of telling the American people who their choices should be since 2005. The inside the beltway powerbrokers have taken sides within various campaigns in the Republican primary skirmish, and are fighting for dear life on behalf of the horses they have chosen. But the American people have intelligence and patience and are fighting back telling the pollsters, pundits, and party machine favorites about the dark horse, who only Chuck Norris among the media elites has endorsed.

A snapshot on December 12th, 2007 tells us what? First place in Iowa, and neck and neck in the New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, and Nevada polls, the Huckaboom Train is sweeping the nation.

Overthrowing popular wisdom, the traditional hard-working Republicans in small town America have begun listening to the political discourse for their future. And the results?

Thompson, the late-coming saviour king of the Republican masses who arrived to take his place with scepter in-hand as a Reagan wannabe and the "last best hope" of the Republican party has failed to ignite the people anymore than a cow grazing in pasture.

The skeletons of Juliani are apparently so numerous and heavy that they are busting open the closet door that was supposed to remain closed from the American people. One by one, drip by drip like Chinese water torture, Juliani is spending overtime attempting to shove back the skeletons inside the closet.

McCain, the compromiser, has shown little promise for change for traditional Republicans with his "Straigth Talk Express".

And of course Romney's precision-based campaign, not a hair out of place has done much to garner the attention of America. Yet, even he as a Goliath must be scratching his head exasperated with the biblical "David" from Arkansas who bears only a little sling shot and a good aim.

So how far can a little sling shot and a good aim can do?

Maybe as far as 2 Fish & 5 loaves can carry him?

As Thompson grazes in the pasture with old cows confused and dazed, as Juliani plays 9/11 Hero in a post 9/11 world, as McCain straight talks his way to retirement, and as Romney re-organizes his message again, the American people are talking back:

the no-name former Governor of Arkansas is enjoying the 2 Fish and 5 loaves of bread campaign, no doubt praying for more of the same.

So what are the polls telliing us about this "2 Fish 5 Bread" surge by Huckabee?

Americans are not done dreaming. Americans are not about to be told who they have to vote for. Roosevelt's 1912 Bull Moose Party, Jesse Ventura's 3rd Party, Ross Perot's 1992 near brush with greatness, William Jefferson Clinton's "Comeback Kid" campaign, and Howard Dean's near victory in 2004 tell us that Americans are not brain dead, but alive and listening for the best candidates.

What media pundit would have considered the simple but well-spoken Baptist minister from Arkansas to be a top tier candidate through any of the campaign cycle?

But then again- no one asked the American people, did they?

A notice to all pundits who get paid lots of money to predict the choice of political candidates:

The establishment candidates with all of the money and name recognition may well win the day in the end. But then again, the establishment has never faced a little David with his slingshot who also carries 2 Fish with 5 Loaves.

Mortgage Help: A Fascist Ploy Being Hached!

With 1.2 million Americans locked out of their homes for failure to meet their mortgage obligations, America's government plans to act. How you ask?

As FDR coerced corporations in the 1930's to maintain high wages and give pink slips to no one, our elephant and donkey leaders in D.C. are scrambling to help Americans out again. The problem is that FDR turned a recession of a couple of years into a full blown depression of 12 years by meddling in the affairs of free enterprise with big government programs. Anyone care to guess what happen today when President Bush and the Washingtonians get finished with their strong-arm techniques of re-writing mortgage contracts?

So you are about to lose your home? Don't worry about it... Missed a few more payments and the government will subsidize your failures? Kicked out to the curb? Not on your life...the Federal government is concocting the "Save a Home" plan- we'll kick the teeth in of those institutions and investors that risked their money to provide previously unqualified homeowners the opportunity to own their home. So what do these risk-takers get in return?

The loss of their private property rights, the loss of return on shareholder investment, the drying up of commercial credit, the destruction of contract law, a disregard of individual responsibility, what are contracts worth now? Not even the paper that they are written on-

How dangerous is this?

What lender should run the risk of loaning money to questionable borrowers if he cannot have a superior return on his investment? If you have to eat your investment because government forces you to hold the investment at reduced returns, is this the America we want? Take note: Even the government FHA programs are created to avoid the dirt clods who fail to make their payments.

So why blame lenders of last resort who provided the American dream to low qualified buyers? Isn't this what the Community Reinvestment Act of the Clinton years was all about? Giving a chance to renters to own a home? And if these low quality buyers fail to meet their obligations, why not let foreclosures take their course for those who failed to uphold their contractual obligations? Why not let apartments and houses be rented again by these individuals instead of destroying contract law? Is there any shame in renting for a while?

Be assured...government bail-outs, coercion tactics, price and interest rate controls will only extend the pain of Americans. It will not reduce the pain. It will make the pain more costly.

Do you remember the last big government plan to help the American people? Richard Nixon's price and wage controls of the early 1970's produced stagflation of the middle and late 70's that paralyzed American growth, productivity, and prosperity. Government tried to help the people...but...

Wasn't it President Reagan who said, "The most feared words are: I am from the government and I am here to help you."

Can anyone blame the Gipper? Scratching the itch may make you feel good for the moment. But it makes the itch even more irritating. Government help sounds good, feels good, and looks good. But once it arrives in the form of nullifying contracts, we wonder why on earth government acted so inefficiently, ineffectively, and so wastefully-

If any of us needs an example of government invasions, then consider health care, higher education, and even the post office??? Are not these the poster children for government results? Do we really want our government invading the marketplace re-writing private contracts, since we know that the results have been historically disasterous?
