   If you follow the Rush Limbaugh show on the EIB network, here is an excerpt of what you heard on Friday from caller Johnny Donovan from Florida:
I am making an appeal. I am going to say something I want you to repeat.  Media Matters, Think Progress, Americans for Democratic Action, Students for a Democrat Society, the Black Panthers, the New Black Panthers, all of you.  Who am I leaving out?  Daily Kos, Democrat Underground, I don't want to leave anybody out.  I want to say something, and I'm begging you to quote me.
Americans had to lose their health care plans in order to for Obamacare to work.  There was never any intention for anybody to keep their current plan.  The only way Obamacare could work, as designed by Obama and the Democrats, is precisely because people would lose their plan.  It had to happen that way.  The only way Obamacare could work, the only way Obama could reform the health care system the way he wants to reform it is precisely if everybody lost their plan.

   The call went on to say:

There was never, ever any intention that you keep your plan, whether you liked it or not.  You were lied to, blatantly, strategically, tactically, and purposefully.  The president of the United States knew that the only way to sell you on his reform was to lie about it, and that was to put you off guard and to relax any tension that you might use to oppose it by telling you that if you like yours, you can keep it, no big deal.  Nothing's gonna happen to you.  Which tells us that the vast majority of the American people like their plans and didn't want anything to change.  And that's why all hell's breaking loose now.
But the simple fact is that for Obamacare to become what he wants it to become, you were never going to keep your plan.  You were never going to be allowed to keep your plan.  It had to happen this way.  By the way, this term "single payer," that does not properly describe what it really is.  In fact, describing what Obama wants and what the Democrats want as single payer might actually be a disservice, because it sounds really clean.  Single payer.  You go to the doctor, and one agency pays for it.  No insurance company, no middlemen, no forms.  You go to the doctor and you submit it to the government, single payer.  That's not what it is.
Single payer is no more than communism.  Maybe socialism, communism, the government owns the means of production, and they're not gonna do that, but they will own the behavior of the hospitals, and they will own the behavior of the doctors by virtue of how they are paid.  But this is pure collectivism.  It is total government control over every aspect of your life.  That's what single payer is.  It's not convenient. It's not an improvement.  It is an overwhelming loss of individual liberty and freedom, and I'll just say it one more time.  You had to lose your plan to get what he wants.

   You can read the entire transcript at; go to the archives if you miss his shows and you can read what was said on his shows.

   Have you wondered why the conservatives or the Tea Party are fighting President Obama and his liberal associates?  There you have it:  what he wants is "an overwhelming loss of individual liberty and freedom".  He, Hillary, Harry Reid, etc. wants to abolish The Constitution.  Just as the IRS has denied religious groups and Tea Party groups tax exempt status, President Obama will pick and chose who receives medical service, which physicians will get paid, what services will be allowed, etc.  I don't know why this is so difficult to understand.

   We have a new regulation by an agency that is part of a run away agency which has no oversight.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is an agency inside of the Department of Health and Human Services.  The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been in the news recently regarding the debacle of Obamacare.  Need I say more?  Now, the FDA has come out with some more new rules to force the behavior of Americans to comply with the way they want us to act.  Let me give you a little background:
  The last time I posted about the FDA was in October of 2011, when they decided to remove over the counter inhalers for patients who needed them to breathe.  I questioned their authority then, but found no answers.  A few days ago, the FDA decided to limit pain medicines for millions of American patients who rely on them to make life tolerable. 
   Now, the FDA has decided to remove trans fats from the American diet.  It was not enough that they required labels on our foods to educate us about the trans fats we are consuming.  Now, they just want to through it all in the garbage so we can't get it!  See, you and I are too stupid to know what we want and what we don't want.  Trans fat is legal to consume, but so are cigarettes.  You will be incarcerated if you partake of any of these things, no matter how legal they are!
   And, by the way, you have to buy health insurance with reproductive health coverage even though you are an 84 year old man.  The latest rumor I heard is that Viagra and Cialis will not be covered in your new insurance policy, but abortion will.  
   According to their website,  the FDA is responsible for:
  • Protecting the public health by assuring that foods (except for meat from livestock, poultry and some egg products which are regulated by the U.S Department of Agriculture are safe, wholesome, sanitary and properly labeled; ensuring that human and veterinary drugs, and vaccines and other biological products and medical devices intended for human use are safe and effective
  • Protecting the public from electronic product radiation
  • Assuring cosmetics and dietary supplements are safe and properly labeled
  • Regulating tobacco products
  • Advancing the public health by helping to speed product innovations
FDA's responsibilities extend to the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and other U.S. territories and possessions 

   The question remains:  Who is regulating these agencies and who are they accountable to?  How often are they audited?  I see nowhere in their "responsibilities" where they are responsible for my choices of a diet or my detrimental habits.

NOVEMBER 5, 2013
Proposition #1:  The constitutional amendment authorizing the legislature to provide for an exemption from ad valorem taxation of all or part of the market value of the residence homestead of the surviving spouse of a member of the armed services of the United States who is killed in action.
I will vote yes.  I believe in supporting our military families.
Proposition #2:  The constitutional amendment eliminating an obsolete requirement for a State Medical Education Board and a State Medical Education Fund, neither of which is operational.
There has been no new loans made from the fund by the board in more than 25 years.  There isn't even any appointees to the board and receives no program funding.
I am voting yes.  I am also contacting my State Representative to discover who decided not to enforce this CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT  and why. 
Proposition #3: 
The constitutional amendment to authorize a political subdivision of this state to extend the number of days that aircraft parts that are exempt from ad valorem taxation due to their location in this state for a temporary period may be located in this state for purposes of qualifying for the tax exemption.
I am voting no.  I have to wonder about the lobbyist who is pushing for this, but see no benefit to me.
Proposition # 4:
The constitutional amendment authorizing the legislature to provide for an exemption from ad valorem taxation of part of the market value of the residence homestead of a partially disabled veteran or the surviving spouse of a partially disabled veteran if the residence homestead was donated to the disabled veteran by a charitable organization.
Again, I am voting yes.  Our military deserves thank for their service.
Proposition # 5:
The constitutional amendment to authorize the making of a reverse mortgage loan for the purchase of homestead property and to amend lender disclosures and other requirements in connection with a reverse mortgage loan.
I will vote no.  I do not want to give banks the right to harass seniors.
Proposition #6:
The constitutional amendment providing for the creation of the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas and the State Water Implementation Revenue Fund for Texas to assist in the financing of priority projects in the state water plan to ensure the availability of adequate water resources.
I will vote no.  This proposition sounds like our Congressmen are planning a tax hike.
Proposition # 7:
The constitutional amendment authorizing a home-rule municipality to provide in its charter the procedure to fill a vacancy on its governing body for which the unexpired term is 12 months or less.
  I will vote no.  I believe the special elections giving voters a voice in our government is better than having our elected officials "appointed".
Proposition # 8:
The constitutional amendment repealing Section 7, Article IX, Texas Constitution, which relates to the creation of a hospital district in Hidalgo County.

I will vote yes, allowing the citizens of Hidalgo County power over themselves.
Proposition # 9:
The constitutional amendment relating to expanding the types of sanctions that may be assessed against a judge or justice following a formal proceeding instituted by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct.
 I will vote yes.   This amendment will expand the potential sanctions that the State Commission on Judicial Conduct can issue following a formal proceeding.  It will allow the Commission to issue an order of public admonition, a warning, a reprimand, or a requirement to obtain additional training or education in addition to the Commission's current authority to issue a public censure or recommend removal or retirement of a judge. 
 The state board of nurse examiners currently have the choice of the  "expanded sanctions" against nurses.  I believe judges could also benefit from these expanded sanction choices.


The sale of all alcoholic beverages including mixed beverages.

I will vote no.

   It hurts to be the smartest man in the room.  We have the established politicians in Washington, George Soros, and Mark Zuckerberg telling us how foreign criminals need to be given forgiven for breaking our laws so our economy will improve.  How stupid they all think you are!  I give you John Kerry who even said that Americans "have the right to be stupid".  Well, there you are.
   How will it benefit America to give foreign invaders our jobs, when we have an epidemic of people on welfare?  Why not put our legal citizens to work and kick the foreigners off welfare?  That makes more sense to me.  How many stories have you heard or read where a company has two openings and hundreds of applicants?  And big business wants to give those jobs to foreign criminals to depress wages.
   Established Republicans are obviously taking a lot of bribes from big business to push this law on us.  Have you read EXTORTION by Peter Schweizer?  How much time do you invest in keeping up with what is going on in Washington?  Have you even "liked" your Congressman's facebook page to see what he is up to and to give you a way to communicate with him?
   It doesn't matter how many tours of military duty you have served.  Every American has got to arm themselves with knowledge and then use wisdom to discern truth.  What are you doing to preserve this country for your children and grandchildren?  It is time to get in the fight to preserve our freedoms.
   Case in point is John Kerry giving the U.N. the power to disarm you.  He signed away our right to be a sovereign nation.  I can't wait until the socialists in Washington ratify it.
   Our elected officials are in Washington trying to eliminate our immigration system.  They want to give our country to foreigners and are being paid handsomely by big business and big money.  Are you going to allow them to ram more laws down our throats like they did Obamacare?
   Speaking of Obamacare, you would think that since it is such a great thing, that our President would be the first to sign up.  WRONG!  He just wants to force this monster on you and your elected officials are more than willing to accommodate him.
   Let me tell you about a state insurance for homeowners along the coast of Texas.  When Hurricane Ike hit, our poor homeowners were denied claims to restore their homes.  I know for a fact that there was one homeowner who had 180 photos of damage to his roof, even with glass embedded in the shingles from where the strong winds had carried broken glass.  His house was wrecked.  He and his wife were living in a travel trailer next to the house.  Texas Windstorm Insurance denied his claim.  The insurance company ran out of money and could not cover all the damaged homes.
   Fast forward to our federal government.  Your mind cannot even imagine the woes that people who are in need of medical attention will face.  Look at how Harry Reid and President Obama denied medical attention through the V.A. during this latest partial shutdown of the government that they staged.  Then, since the I.R.S. is in charge of the healthcare, and they targeted a certain segment of Americans for tax exempt status, imagine what will happen if the government doesn't like you.  You will be targeted and denied health care. 
   So, today, share this post with your friends.  "Search" your Congressman on facebook and "like" their pages.  Read true news reports at and  Ask for help if you are unsure who is telling the truth.  Time is running out.    What are you willing to do for your children and grandchildren?

   This is an excerpt from a story from regarding the current "negotiations" being conducted in Washington.  They are quoting Senate Majority Harry Reid:

"We've made tremendous progress," Reid said at the end of a Senate session during a federal holiday, underscoring the urgency of settling a fiscal crisis that was nearing a Thursday deadline. The U.S. Treasury Department estimates it will reach a $16.7 trillion borrowing limit on Oct. 17.
"We hope that with good fortune ... that perhaps tomorrow will be a bright day," Reid said, hinting at the possible Tuesday announcement of a bipartisan Senate deal.

   Those of us who "test the spirits" have to analyze this statement.  When Senator Reid says, "We've made tremendous progress"  what he is saying is that he is the only elected official who matters and everyone needs to bow to him.  When Newsmax says, "Reid said at the end of a Senate session during a federal holiday, underscoring the urgency of settling a fiscal crisis that was nearing a Thursday deadline", what they are not saying is that Reid sent the Senate home early in this situation and rudely ignored the House's proposals and the work they were doing.  Reid stated with his actions that the House needs to obey him only, not their voters back home.
   When Newsmax says "The U.S. Treasury Department estimates it will reach a $16.7 trillion borrowing limit on Oct. 17th, they don't quote President Obama.   The President said on September 18th, "Raising the debt ceiling, which has been done over a hundred times, does not increase our debt".    The President went on to say, "the average person thinks that raising the debt ceiling must mean that we are running up our debt."  Well, duh, Mr. President.  So the "average person" is smarter than the President of the United States!
   Then Newsmax ends this excerpt by saying that Reid said these things, "hinting at the possible Tuesday announcement of a bipartisan Senate deal."  What that means is that Democrats and RINOs keep trying to force their will on American voters, who have shouted loudly that we are tired of their grandstanding.  We want the federal government to work for America.  We don't want Liberals continually ramming their agenda down our throats.
   We don't want obamacare
   We want our borders secured
   We want the Constitution upheld, like our "representatives" promised when they took their oath of office.
   We already have "a path to citizenship".  It is called "legal immigration".  We want foreign invaders prosecuted.
   We want welfare reformed to include ONLY Americans.
   We want our military taken care of like they were promised when they signed up or were drafted.
   We want "fast and furious" and "Benghazi" investigated and the criminals prosecuted.
   Is that too much to ask?

A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed health care bill.

Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish.

This is stunning!

The Truth About the Health Care Bills - Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional.

What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government. 

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However , that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.  

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn't stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 ofthe Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

   I made the statement the other day, "One does not have to be a Christian to be a Republican but cannot be a Democrat if they are a Christian."  The statement really did not get the response I had intended.  I guess only two people saw it.
   If we don't vote according to our religion, what guideline do we use?  Do we use the Constitution?  How many of us have read and understood the Constitution?  How many Amendments have been added?  Currently, there is a 28th Amendment floating around on facebook.  Do you know there is no 28th Amendment to the Constitution?
   What about the politicians?  Do we vote according to what they say or how they look?  With the invent of television and with more and more people having them in their homes, it has been easier for a good looking politician to win over a not-so-good looking one.  Did you know that?
   Then we have the bills and crises that our elected officials vote on.  How many of us are informed about what is up for a vote and understand what impact it will have on our country?  How many of us care?
   What is the differences in the current party platforms?  Do you know what a platform or a plank is?  Do you vote for a party who supports  your own special interest or who supports the Constitution?
   The sad fact of the matter is that not that many people read the Bible or know what is in it.  I would venture to say that even fewer read the Constitution and can determine how to apply it to the different issues our Country faces.  Case in point, I give you the Supreme Court.  We have judges appointed to the Supreme Court who prefer to legislate from the bench.  Do you even know what that means?  Do you care?
   I am sure that we all care.  We are so busy with making a living and caring for our families that sometimes we just want to sit down in front of the television and vegetate.  We need our "down time".  Keeping up with politics is time consuming and boring.  Well, not for me.  I would rather have politics than football.  That is quite a statement.
    Furthermore, most of us know SOMETHING about religion or the Bible, but how many of us know ANYTHING about the Constitution and what it says?  It is easier to bring religion into the conversation than it is to talk about what the Constitution says about a subject or a proceeding.  Case in point:  a tax cannot originate in the Senate, like Obamacare did, thus, it is unconstitutional.  As with our religion, we need to be informed about the Constitution so we can have an intelligent debate.
   So, when someone brings religion into the conversation about politics, they are saying they don't have a clue about the Constitution.  The Heritage Foundation has been giving free classes on the Constitution.  Yes, it requires a little investment of your time and effort to understand some of it, but isn't it worth it?  Isn't it worth it to be an informed consumer?  After all, you are paying Congress and the President and Vice-President to make and vote on the laws.  Maybe you should be informed as to whether you are getting your money's worth.
   It has recently come to my attention that Americans should be the most informed people in the world.  We can connect to our politicians and/or those running for office with just a few clicks of the mouse.  I have my elected officials connected to my facebook.  I listen to talk radio.  I have found a few online news blogs that I trust to keep me informed.  I am still searching for a Constitutional blog.
   We are also taught to "test the spirits" in the Bible.  We know that some of the issues we face as a nation are contrary to our "religion".  Those issues should be brought to the attention of our elected officials.  Big  business and special interest groups spend a lot of money to push their agenda.  We, the citizens who actually vote, should be spending a little time to communicate with the officials we send to Washington and push them to act on our behalf.  If they don't, we can fire them and hire someone who will work for us.  We have that power.
   I believe Sarah Palin said it right when she said, "The permanent political class cannot control the political process, thanks in large part to the rise of technology and new media..."  She also said something to the effect of  the paradigm has shifted for the financial elite and the political establishment.  The grassroots movement communicate with each other, sharing information on social media.  NOBODY believes anything the main stream media reports any more.  They have been caught in too many lies to further their own political causes.  They don't report the facts, but slant the truth to promote their agenda.
   We have all got to invest our time and get involved.  It is working.

Without a doubt, your personal integrity is your most prized possession. Each day, that integrity is constantly tested, and you have an opportunity to prove it or lose it with every decision you make.

Doing the right thing is not always the easiest thing – but it is always the right thing to do. Choosing to do the right thing – even when it’s painful – ensures you will maintain your most precious possession throughout your personal and professional journey.

It is better to be defeated on principle than to win on lies.
~Arthur Calwell

Integrity is the commitment to do what is right regardless of the circumstances – no hidden agendas, no political games. Do the right thing, period.
~Ken Carnes

There is no pillow as soft as a clear conscience.
~John Wooden

The time is always right to do what is right.

   The main stream media is at it again.  Today the report on the television is that Obamacare has been voted down.  That is just not true.  The House of Representatives has voted to defund it when they voted on a stop-gap continuing resolution to keep the government funded.  The Senate now has to vote on the bill, which President Obama has sworn to veto.  
   President Obama has given passes to everyone except hard working Americans. What started out being what Democrats insisted was merely way to provide uninsured Americans with the same kinds of coverage and choices that members of Congress have has turned into an albatross.  Now, Congress has decided they don't want to be forced into the Obamacare system.
    Members of Congress who voted for Obamacare initially managed to dump themselves out of their existing health care coverage.  Under Section 1312 of the law, they are to be enrolled in health insurance exchange plans, just like many working Americans, and will lose existing coverage in their popular and successful Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP).  And, just like millions of working Americans dumped out of their existing coverage, they lose their employer's subsidy for insurance plus the generous federal and state tax breaks that accompany employer-based coverage.
   The Obama Administration recently "fixed" this unheard of oversight by Congress by providing special subsidies for Members and congressional staff to reduce their premium costs in the Obamacare exchanges.
   The U.S. Senator from Louisiana, David Vitter, proposed an amendment recently that would overturn this action by the Obama Administration.  There is no statutory authority either in Obamacare or in Title V of the U.S. Code, for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management to make government insurance contributions on behalf of federal employees to any plan other than an FEHBP plan.  The original Obamacare law provided for employers to make a defined contribution for workers in the exchanges ( a "free choice voucher") but Congress scrapped it.  What that means, is that they want to delete our employer contributions to our insurance premiums but they think they are more important than we are.  They want to keep their employer contributions to their premiums.
   Senator Harry Reid was furious with Senator Vitter's proposed amendment, which was co-sponsored by Senators Mike Enzi (R-WY), Mike Lee (R-UT), Ron Johnson (R- WI), Dean Heller (R-NV), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).  The prospect of having to vote on Vitter’s amendment shut down floor debate on the bill last week.
   Senator Vitter’s amendment would do two things. First, the President, Vice President, Cabinet secretaries, and all political appointees—the policy making agents of the executive branch—would be enrolled in the health insurance exchanges, just like millions of other Americans. Second, Members of Congress and their staffs—including all committee and leadership office staff—would also be enrolled in the health insurance exchanges under the same terms and conditions as other Americans. In other words, Congress and its staff would not get any special subsidies at taxpayer expense for their health insurance.
   Oh, and did I mention that illegal immigrants are exempt?  Yes, they are.  Just hard working Americans are penalized.
   So, we still need to sign the petition at AND  contact your Congressmen.  Let your voice be heard!

Lexington: Minuteman Statue
A statue in Lexington, Mass., honouring the minutemen who fought against the British in 1775.
(photo from the Encyclopedia Britannica)

   I would like to congratulate American Patriots for getting involved in taking our country back.  It is working.  The House Republicans passed a test vote on Thursday to defund the monstrosity of Obamacare.  Thanks to all of you who signed the petition at , by Senator Ted Cruz.  We have sent more than 1.3 million signatures to our Congressmen in Washington.  They are listening.  That is why the House has taken the first step.
   The House took the first step Thursday, voting 230-192 to bring a bill to the floor Friday that would fund most of the government but would withhold funding for the health care law.  If the House passes its bill Friday, it  shifts the debate to the Senate, where House Speaker Boehner says it will be up to a vocal group of Republican senators to rally the votes.   That won't be easy with such out-of-touch Senators as John McCain and Lindsey Graham.
   So, we are asking you to continue the good fight.  Please encourage three of your closest friends or relatives to sign the petition, then to pick up the phone and contact their Senators.  You remember the Supreme Court ruled Obamacare is only constitutional because it is a tax.  Tell Washington we don't need more taxes, we need jobs.  This is not only a tax, it is a job killer.
   Whether you served in the armed forces or not, it is your turn to fight for our freedom.  We may not get another chance.  ARE YOU WITH US?

   This is your fight.  The Progressives have taken over your country.  What are you going to do about it?  If you do nothing, you are saying you agree with the Progressives on Obamacare.  Let your opinions be heard.
   United States Senator Ted Cruz, from the great state of Texas has told Breitbart News today that Congress is terrified of grass roots movements.  He  said they don't want to be held accountable.  I say they need to stand for their principles.  Senator Cruz has asked us all to sign the petition at and he wants us all to contact our Congressmen for the next 20 days to let them know we don't want Obamacare.  If it ain't good enough for them, don't force it on us.
   Americans in Colorado just fired their state Senators, Angela Giron (D. Pueblo) and John Morse (D. Colorado Springs) for trying to implement gun control.  It appears that the good citizens of Colorado were being denied a voice on the hearing concerning the gun ban proposal.  The only thing they had left was to fire the elected officials.
   Did I mention that Sen. Ted Cruz said that the Congressmen were terrified of grass roots movements?  He said the battle is between us, the everyday American citizen and the entrenched politician.  It is ingrained in every true American, every Patriot who has been proud of their country since they were born, not just since 2008 like First Lady Michelle Obama; It is ingrained in our fiber to root for the underdog.  Now, we can not only root for him, but we can fight with him.
   I am not big on signing petitions, but I signed this one, and I hope you will join me.  Don't delay.  The shoes in the picture at the beginning of this post was from the victims who perished in the Nazi death camps.  It is time to stand up and be counted.

You are invited to leave a comment with your thoughts.  You are also invited to share this post on facebook, twitter, and every place in between.  Again, it is your fight.

   I confess that I video taped today's show of  Face the Nation.  Bob Scheiffer had Mike Rogers (R. Michigan) on his show today.  Representative Rogers was appointed as Chairman of  the House Intelligence Committee in 2011 and "is a national leader on national security policy", according to his website.  So, he serves in the United States House of Representatives, representing Michigan's Eighth Congressional District.

   Prior to being elected to The House of Representatives, Rep. Rogers was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army through the ROTC at the University of Michigan.  He then served as an FBI special agent.  He was first elected to Congress in 2001.  Thank you, Sir, for your service to our Country.
   Today, the show was about the ramifications on inaction on the part of the U.S. regarding President Obama's "red line" to Bashir Assad.  Rep. Rogers verbalized his concern that inaction after the President drew the "red line" would send Iran, North Korea, and others a negative message concerning our leadership on the world stage.  Mr. Scheiffer concurred with that assessment. 
   I guess these guys have not heard what America is saying about President Obama's "red line".  As far as that goes, maybe they have not listened to ANYTHING America is saying about President Obama and his Administration. 
   His you know that he is marching Susan Rice out to brief Congress on what the President wants to do and why?  Can you imagine?  Susan Rice?   Maybe this is why Americans are saying, "no" to President Obama.  He had Susan Rice try to convince America that an obscure video was the cause of death for  Ambassador Stephens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty in Benghazi last year.  She even went on Face the Nation to do it!  Again, I say the Obama Administration has a credibility problem.
   Where is his support from leaders of other nations?  This guy said he was going to "make the world love us" after  "President Bush alienated them".  Who will stand with President Obama?  All I hear are crickets.
   I have been concerned that most of the elected officials in Washington have either been on drugs or "playing poker on their phones" that has resulted in their being too distracted to focus on their jobs.  Going back to the Washington Post piece on October 19, 2012, I also have to consider that the information they receive may be faulty:

CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks

By David Ignatius,October 19, 2012
The Romney campaign may have misfired with its suggestion that statements by President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice about the Benghazi attack last month weren’t supported by intelligence, according to documents provided by a senior U.S. intelligence official.
“Talking points” prepared by the CIA on Sept. 15, the same day that Rice taped three television appearances, support her description of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video prepared in the United States. According to the CIA account, “The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”
The CIA document went on: “This assessment may change as additional information is collected and analyzed and as currently available information continues to be evaluated.” This may sound like self-protective boilerplate, but it reflects the analysts’ genuine problem interpreting fragments of intercepted conversation, video surveillance and source reports.

   I am sorry, Rep. Rogers.  I cannot see any support for this President to go to war with Syria.  America's biggest concern, at this point, is not what terrorists all over the world think of this country's resolve not to bomb Syria; America's biggest concern is WHO IN THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS THEIR FINGER ON OUR NUCLEAR BOMBS?  It is sad when we are more concerned about what our own government is doing than what world terrorists are.

   We have been following this story for a while and decided it is time to share it with our viewers:  On August 25, 2013, reported that  Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk with a clean record for 19 years while serving in the United States Air Force, was relieved of duty for not promoting the homosexual lifestyle.  Apparently, according to his new commander, Major Elisa Valenzuela, "supporting gay marriage was now military policy".  It is no longer a matter of "don't ask, don't tell", it is now a push for homosexuals to marry AND for every member of the military to agree with that agenda.
   According to the United States Constitution, Americans have the "right to freedom of religion" and the "right to free speech".  If you volunteer to serve this nation in the military, you give up ALL of your constitutional freedoms that you are allegedly fighting to protect.
   Is it just me, or is there something severely wrong with this picture?
   Then, there was a bakery in Gresham, Oregon, yes, I said "was", that refused to make a wedding cake for homosexuals.  Laurel Bowman filed a complaint with Oregon Department of Justice but was told to take it up with BOLI because it was more of a civil rights issue than a consumer protection case.  The bakery refused to make a "wedding cake" for Ms./Mr./?  Bowman and Rachel Cryer

'It's discrimination': Newlyweds Laurel and Rachel Bowman-Cryer, left to right, complained to the state when Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to serve them based on their sexual orientation

 and that is allegedly a civil rights violation?  Well, that is a high crime if ever I heard of one!  See, they did not just want a "wedding cake", they wanted everyone in America to validate their sexual perversion.
   It was not so long ago that homosexuality was classified as a mental illness.  In 1952, the original Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) listed homosexuality among the sociopathic personality disturbances.  In 1968, DSM II removed homosexuality from the sociopathic list, categorizing it with OTHER SEXUAL DEVIATIONS.  In 1973, the DSM III changed it's position on homosexuality.  The president-elect of the American Psychiatric Association that year, was Dr. John P. Spiegel, homosexual.
   The removal of the diagnosis of homosexuality from the DSM is comparable to obesity added to the American Medical Association's diagnoses.  These decisions are purely political. 
   So, Aaron and Melissa Klein, owner of the bakery, closed their business in response to an investigation reported on August 14th by BOLI claiming that the bakery may have violated the "Oregon Equality Act of 2007", which states that sexual orientation may not be used to deny services to customers.  That law is to be applied to employment, housing, and public accommodations.  I saw nothing stating it is to be used to force a private company to promote agendas that go against their religious beliefs. 
   What a sad day for America that our own government and our military are targeting and persecuting Christians.  Remember the famous words of  Martin Niemöller: "First they came for the communist......."

   Breitbart's Matthew Boyle reports today that U.S. Representative Jeff Duncan from South Carolina grilled John Kerry in regards to attacking Syria.  There may be hope for our country yet.  You can view the video at
   In essence, Rep. Duncan said the same thing I posted on August 30th, "PRESIDENT OBAMA TO ATTACK SYRIA", that the media and the Obama Administration are not credible.  I agree that we should not go to war with Syria on the basis of what this Administration's media is telling us.  There is no trust in the media, no trust in President Obama's Administration.
   If we are really concerned about the security of  The United States of America, we need to SECURE THE BORDERS  and ABOLISH THE IRS.

op/ed by Kit 
   Here is one problem with President Obama wanting to strike Syria:  no one believes the media when they say Syria is using chemical weapons.  When George W. Bush was President, the media nit-picked all the time on him. These days, no one believes the media when they report ANYTHING..  The George Zimmerman trial is just one example.  The media is like an ex-husband.  The only time he lies is when he opens his mouth.
   Then there is former White House Aide, Reggie Love, who said President Obama was not in the situation room during the attack on Osama bin Laden.


Reggie claims the President was playing "spades" in another part of the White House.   But we saw the so called still photos of him while the attack was in progress, remember?  Again, who believes the media?  It appears YouTube has pulled the actual video of Reggie admitting what the President was doing during the raid.  I found it and watched it, but was unable to copy it here.  All of the media is covering for this guy!

Former Obama aide Reggie Love (right) said that the President couldn’t ‘watch this entire’ thing play out, opting instead to play spades with staffers while the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound took place.

   Did you see the coverage of the fiftieth anniversary of  Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I have a dream" speech?  The only people being "honored" were Democrats.  By the way, historically, Democrats were against the civil rights movement.  It was the Republicans who fought for it.
   Getting back to President Obama's desire to attack Syria, if there were no WMD's in Iraq, the Syrian government is not attacking their own citizens with chemical weapons and we should leave them to their own civil war.  We should just monitor it to be sure it does not disrupt the rest of the area.
   I just wonder who is actually in charge in Washington.  Our President was MIA during the attack on Benghazi.  I want to know WHERE the 400 surface to air missiles are that we had in Benghazi.  I want to know WHY we had them there.  I want to know WHY our troops were told to "stand down" instead of going to Ambassador Stephen's aid.  I want to know WHY we were not protecting the Consulate there with our troops in the first place. 
   And now, President Obama wants to attack Syria because he let his alligator mouth overload his hummingbird ass?!?  No way.  This guy needs to take another hit of his drugs and leave running the country to someone who is not cognitively impaired!  By the way, John Kerry may as well return to his yacht, too, as he did when Egypt was burning.
   I posted in June of last year that this President is funding a war against Israel.  It looks to me like he wants a full-blown world war III.

Martin Luther King Jr. on Meet the Press on Aug. 25, 1963.

   I was nine years old in August of 1963 during the first airing, but I watched the re-broadcast of the Meet The Press interview of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Roy Wilkins on Sunday, then I combed the transcript for the one phrase that stood out to me.  Martin Luther King, Jr. had lofty goals for his community. 
   He was asked the question, "Dr King you are quoted in today's New York Times magazine as saying, 'The Negro's demand for equality must be approximated if not totally fulfilled.'  Would you say what you believe approximated equality is?"
   Dr. King replies, "I think equality is the ability of the individual in any society to achieve respect and dignity and all of the other things that any individual in that society would achieve without the barriers of laws standing before him saying, 'You cannot go here, or You cannot do that,' and without customary barriers.  I think in order for the Negro to approximate equality here all of the barriers of racial segregation must be removed and all of the barriers of discrimination, whether it is housing conditions, whether it is in employment where the Negro confronts a great deal of discrimination, whether it is the actual segregation of the South in schools, or the de facto segregation of the Northern schools.  All of these barriers must be removed before the Negro can even begin moving up on the highway of freedom in all of its dimensions."


   What stood out to me in this interview is Dr. King's goal of "dignity and respect".  Dignity comes from within.  The definition from is :1: [Noun] True honor; nobleness or elevation of mind, consisting in a high sense of propriety, truth and justice, with an abhorrence of mean and sinful actions; opposed to meanness. In this sense, we speak of the dignity of mind, and dignity of sentiments. This dignity is based on moral rectitude; all vice is incompatible with true dignity of mind. The man who deliberately injures another, whether male or female, has no true dignity of soul..


   Respect comes from others.  You may begin with respect, but when it is lost, it is extremely difficult to regain.  American Heritage Dictionary defines it this way:  "The state of being regarded with honor or esteem."


   Dignity and respect.  It appears that the Civil Rights Movement has been hijacked.  There is no dignity among the Negro Community leaders, thus there is no respect for the community as a whole.  The leaders of The Movement are cannibals who have devoured their own. 

   How can anyone respect Sheila Jackson-Lee,

Sheila Jackson Lee


who is a self-proclaimed "former slave", who is now a "freed
slave"?  That statement is just absurd!  She keeps getting elected to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.  That means that the community who elects her has no dignity.  I know that in my own family, back to my great-grandparents, none of us owned slaves.  We know of none of my family dating back before WWI who owned slaves. So, while equality is a righteous goal, I don't owe anyone anything for my mistreatment of them.

   Let's look at "The Reverend Jesse Jackson",

Jesse Jackson

or lets' not.  Sometimes, I just think everyone who keeps grabbing publicity whether "community activists" or politicians are all afflicted with stage 4 syphilis.  They don't exhibit any semblance of cognitive ability.
   In the Meet The Press interview, I also noticed something else that Dr. King did not say.  He was fighting for the right to work, live, and play just like anyone else.  Anyone with a heart can understand these goals and promote them.
   But the Movement ended up moving the Negro back to the plantation.  Rev. Jesse Jackson glorifies his "welfare President".  Orlando Shaw, 33 years old, is a "rock star" with
Orlando Shaw
 22 children by 14 different women.  All of them are on welfare.  How is this "dignity" or "respect"?  They want others to pay for their existence rather than wanting equality for employment, schooling, or which community to live in.
When did they change their goal?
   Herman Cain was attacked for attending college rather than marching.  Dr. Ben Carson was slammed for thinking for himself and realizing that his morality is more in line with the Conservative's values.  I know many normal, everyday Blacks who also have a great moral compass, but they have not attended a church ran by a "Pastor" like Jeremiah Wright.
   Fifty years after Martin Luther King, Jr.'s efforts, the Civil Rights Movement has been determined to be a failure due to The Left.  Don't feel badly, though, because the Republican Party is also a failure for the same reason.
   The only solution I can think of is for all of us to read.  We need to read The Bible and "test the spirits" for understanding.  You are invited to join us at for Bible reading and discussion.
