No Compromise!

I am extremely proud of all the true conservatives that stood their ground on the whole debate over the economic future of our nation.

Even after Speaker John Boehner ordered his team to "get your ass in line" those who were elected by the tea party movement stood firm and respectfully said no.

I've heard several calls for compromise. Give a little, get a little and everyone goes home with an acceptable feeling. The time for compromise has passed in my opinion. I don't want compromise. Compromise creates mediocrity in which no really wins or loses. Screw that. We need a battle in which we finally decide who the winner is and go with it.

This debate is not over budgets, spending or debt ceilings. At the heart of the issue is an ideological struggle. It is impossible to compromise when one side want the total opposite of the other. Do we let people succeed and fail on their own, or should government tweek every step of the way?

I say get government out of the way of people. Let's really cut spending by putting a stop to the redistribution of other peoples money. We can solve the debt problem overnight. Simply eliminate:

Here we go again: Wu at center of sex allegation

Rep. David Wu has been accused of an “unwanted sexual encounter” with the teenage daughter of a longtime friend, the latest scandal to engulf the troubled Oregon Democrat.
The Oregonian reported that the 56-year-old Wu “acknowledged a sexual encounter to his senior aides but insisted it was consensual,” according to sources aware of the incident.

After the Honeymoom: The Future of Gay Marriage

New York is in the the news with video clips of men kissing and of course the first two women to get "married" pictutred here. How creepy is that????
The New Post reported: " Up in The Bronx, youth pastor Carmen Hernandez, 48, and dental assistant Doris DeArmas, 50, tied the knot." Yes... YOUTH PASTOR! Can we add one more the unemployment list please????

So seven states have signed up for this circus attack on the foundation of society and you will hear that number reported over and over. What you don't hear is in more than 30 states that have put this issue to a vote, the answer has been NO. The only arenas they have been able to score a victory are in some state legislatures and courts. In other words, this is a classic case of the people vs. the elites.

Again the NY Post reports: "City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is openly gay, witnessed the ceremony that was officiated by City Clerk Michael McSweeney. Yes the corrupted city leadership cheers on the charade.
Ultimately, this issue will not be resolved in the courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court: it will be decided by a constitutional amendment. We need leaders who are willing to stand up and do what is needed to pass such an amendment. It's a shame it has to go that far but does.

This simply can not remain a state issue.We can not have people married in one state but not in another. It will effect property, legal rights, custody and so many other issues.
Currently, 30 states have constitutional language defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. At the federal level, the Defense of Marriage Act (which President Obama had called for it's repeal) also defines marriage in the traditional sense. But unless there is a constitutional amendment, we will continue to have an uneven playing field, one that is ripe for further exploitation.

Investing in Liberty: An Interview with Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Poverty in the USA

For decades, the U.S. Census Bureau has reported that over 30 million Americans were living in “poverty,” but the bureau’s definition of poverty differs widely from that held by most Americans. In fact, other government surveys show that most of the persons whom the government defines as “in poverty” are not poor in any ordinary sense of the term. The overwhelming majority of the poor have air conditioning, cable TV, and a host of other modern amenities. They are well housed, have an adequate and reasonably steady supply of food, and have met their other basic needs, including medical care. Some poor Americans do experience significant hardships, including temporary food shortages or inadequate housing, but these individuals are a minority within the overall poverty population. Poverty remains an issue of serious social concern, but accurate information about that problem is essential in crafting wise public policy. Exaggeration and misinformation about poverty obscure the nature, extent, and causes of real material deprivation, thereby hampering the development of well-targeted, effective programs to reduce the problem.


The Real 4th of July

July 4, 1776 marks what date?

It’s not the date when our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. That was actually Aug. 2, 1776.

It wasn’t the date that our most eloquent writer Thomas Jefferson crafted it on parchment (an animal skin, not paper). He mussed up his powdered wig on that between June 11-28.

It wasn’t the date that the 13 British colonies declared their independence from the mother country. That was June 2.

Confounded yet?

On July 4, 1776 the Continental Congress APPROVED the final text of the Declaration.

There were 56 men who signed it. The first and boldest was, of course, John Hancock. The two youngest were Thomas Lynch and Edward Rutledge, both just 26-years-old from South Carolina. At 70, the oldest was Benjamin Franklin.

Jefferson and John Adams both died on July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the famous July 4 vote to approve the document.

But, what did it say?

Jefferson summarized a philosophy of “self-evident truths” and individual liberties that were previously written by John Locke and other contemporary philosophers of the day.

Jefferson further wrote a list of grievances against King George III to justify the break-up between his rule and the colonists. Some of these were spats over laws and rules and the enforcement of them in the colonies.

Many of the grievances were over taxes and tariffs imposed by the crown. From the beginning, Americans objected to taxes and heavy-handed government. (Not much has changed!!!!!!)

Thus a new government was hatched, but first the colonists had to fight and win the Revolutionary War to gain the independence they had declared.

Our firecracker tradition started in Philadelphia in 1777 where bells were rung, guns fired, candles and firecrackers lighted. However, the date wasn’t considered a federal holiday until Congress declared it so in 1941.

Now you know. Happy 4th!

Now you can really follow the Pope

Pope Benedict XVI has joined the masses on Twitter. "Dear Friends, I just launched Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI," the pontiff tweeted.

The new Vatican portal brings together various print and broadcast news streams into one site.

MSNBC = Most Suspended Nimrod Buffoons on Cable

MSNBC better order another stack of suspension letters. They have used quite a few for  foul-mouthed hosts and analysts of late. Let's review...

The Time columnist and MSNBC analyst called President Obama “kind of a dick”. He was right but they slapped him anyway.

Ed Shultz (this blow hard tried to get me one his show once and I declined) was suspended for a week without pay after he called conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut” on his syndicated radio program in May.

Keith Olbermann was put on “indefinite” suspension (it lasted two days) after it was discovered he donated $7,200 to three Democratic candidates. Olbermann and his ego left the network shortly after and no one really noticed.

David Shuster was suspended after he got caught filming a pilot for CNN while under contract with MSNBC. It wasn’t his first offense. He was earlier suspended for saying that Hillary Clinton was “pimping out” daughter Chelsea.

Joe Scarborough was suspended for two days last November for contributing a total of $4,000 to the state legislative campaigns of five different Florida politicians near his hometown of Pensacola.

And the Grand Daddy of suspensions..... Don Imus was first suspended, and then had his show dropped, from MSNBC in 2007 after he referred to the Rutgers University women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.”

I think Obama can blame the high unemployment numbers on MSNBC. Someone keep on eye on Rachael Maddow. She might be suspended for being a man........

Do As I Say (Not as I Do) Obama takes a break

Obama will be taking a break for the Independence Day holiday weekend just two days after scolding Congress for not getting their work done and calling for a cancellation of all vacations.
