The Unraveling

Posted by Mark on November 23, 2009

Michael Crichton’s book State of Fear was, for me, the first nail in the coffin of The Global Warming Hoax.  Now the last nail has been hammered in, and all that is left is the burial. Climate Depot provides all the nails you need to hammer The Hoax for yourself.  The emails that were found and reported last week are the real Inconvenient Truth. Algore was right about one thing. The Truth is often inconvenient.

440 Phantom Congressional Districts Get $6.4 Billion According to Recovery.gov

No matter what side of the aisle you prefer, this is our government spending our money judiciously. I just cannot see how our government can make any claim to managing National Heath Care in a manner most beneficial to its people. This is just madness folks.

Transforming Our Constitution

Posted by Mark on November 17, 2009

To those saying “so what, just a blunder”, “this is not important”, “why is it bad?” – It is more than just a bow. This single incident is one of many, a pattern of behavior during JUST the first year of his presidency that is more disturbing than any president since. He is seeking fundamentally to transform the United States and since our nation is fundamentally defined by our Constitution it is our Constitution he wishes to transform? If it were not for our Constitution, Obama would not be in office! Is this what you voted for?

“WE NOTICED”

President Obama:…

Today I read of your administrations’ plan to re-define September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it’s time we had a talk…….. .

During your campaign, Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition.

YES, “We noticed.”

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not America has 57 states.

YES, “We noticed.”

When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently placed a flower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning over.

YES, “We noticed.”

Every time you apologized to other countries for America ‘s position on an issue we have wondered why you don’t share our pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. In fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.

YES, “We noticed.”

When your pastor of 20 years, “God-damned America ” and said that 9/11 was ” America ‘s chickens coming home to roost” and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically expedient to do so.

YES, “We noticed.”

When you announced that you would transform America , we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, “if not for America and the people who built her, you wouldn’t be sitting in the White House now.” Prior to your election to the highest office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records available, not a very remarkable one.

YES, “We noticed.”

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her traditions.

YES, “We noticed.”

You are 9 months into your term and every morning millions of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation.

YES, “We noticed.”

We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled “un-American” ,”racist” , “mob”. We wonder how we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans had the right to speak out.

YES, “We noticed.”

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was carried out because we are Americans.

And YES, “We noticed.”

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have failed us.

YES, “We noticed.”

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a “National Service Day”. While we know that you don’t share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what it is…a disgrace.

YES, “We noticed.”

You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy.

YES, “We noticed..”

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office.

Take notice.

Deference to a Superior

Posted by Mark on November 15, 2009


I understand bows like this are a sign of great respect, but in other parts of the world bows also represent deference to a superior. Meaning “great honor, respect and esteem due a superior or elder”. Or “the willingness to carry out the wishes of others”. This, by itself, is not a bad thing but when combined with other presidential actions makes for a pattern without any historical precedent. In my opinion, not a very good one.

To Be or Not To Be – A Terroist

Posted by Mark on November 15, 2009

Why is Obama NOT calling this a terrorist attack?

Political correctness is at least partly responsible for the disaster at Fort Hood. Roger L. Simon in a an excellent article called “Fort Hood: Political Correctness as Murder Weapon” in Pajamas Media, makes this point ” ….Political correctness is derived from the more… intellectually respectable doctrine of cultural relativism. In essence, cultural relativism holds that an individuals beliefs and activities should only be understood in terms of his or her own culture. It’s the ultimate version of “who are we to judge?” If Ayatollah Khomeini wishes to oppress all the women and homosexuals in Iran, it’s their way. If Mao seeks to knock off seventy million of his countrymen, so be it. We shouldn’t impose our values.”

Thought

Posted by Mark on November 14, 2009

Obama campaigned on the platform of “Hope and Change” throughout his race for the presidency. He was spot on – I have a little Change and Hoping 2010 will stop this madness . At the rate Obama and the Democrats are going I will not even have the Change left, in my pocket this is.
