Under Pres. Bush - love him or hate him - tax cuts were passed that affected most Americans, rich & poor. HOWEVER they were only passed as 'temporary' by the congress. The expiration of those tax cuts is in 2010. Now, under those tax cuts the government actually brought in MORE money because more people a)could afford to pay & b)were willing to pay without going through all kinds of hoops to 'hide' money. This is fact. IRS fact. The Heritage Foundation fact.

Here are a few FACTS you need to keep in mind if these tax cuts expire:

  • $1,480: The average cost in 2000 for couples punished by the Marriage Penalty
  • $1,716: The average tax increase for over 100 million Americans
  • $2,034: The average tax increase that will hit 17 million seniors
  • $3,637: The tax hike, on average, that 26 million small business owners will be facing
  • $8.3 Million: The number of jobs created after the tax cuts of 2003
  • 44 Million: The number of married couples affected by the Marriage Penalty before it was reduced by Pres. Bush. These families will be hit hard once again if the Marriage Penalty is reinstated
  • $17.2 Billion: The amount spent in 2008 by Congress on frivolous "pork" projects that use taxpayer funds to reward local special interests & pressure groups
  • $91 Billion: The cost of reinstating the Death Tax
  • $2.4 Trillion: The overall tax increase faced by American families, seniors, & businesses
Nice to know that the current prez won't have to "increase taxes on 95%" of Americans. Oh, wait, that's being explored now too. On top of the TAX INCREASES listed above by the expiration of tax cuts under Bush.

Around & around & around & around the politics goes.....where it stops.....nobody knows.....

Be sure to get a clear answer from your congressional reps on the expiration of tax cuts & how will THAT raise your taxes AND while you are at it, ask about raising taxes for every American to pay the bills they have run up in just the past 6 months.

And altho the congress does NOT understand this, let me again try to make it clear:
  • this is not a 'race' issue
  • this is not a 'political party' issue
  • this is not a 'class' issue
  • this is not a 'wage' issue
  • this is not an 'area of the country' issue
  • this is not a 'religious' issue
  • this is not an 'organized _______' issue (fill in any of the names questioners are being called; fill in any of the ugly, nasty, rude & tacky labels Democrats are assigning to those showing up at meetings just to ask questions. I mean, really, who do we think we are? Your bosses or something? That you work for us? Perish the thought.)
Until Congress can finally understand the depth of anger we hold against them for their betrayals, they will never understand what is going on with the meetings, the TEA parties, the questions, the frustrations.


drill baby BRAZIL?

WHERE IS REYES IN THIS? I don't understand this - do you?

UNITED STATES TAXPAYERS are 'loaning' 2 BILLION DOLLARS to the world's 7th largest OIL COMPANY -- which makes billions of dollars of profit -- to drill offshore of BRAZIL. Democrats who explain this are saying it is 'helping someone who is a FRIEND' (Brazil).

We are 'loaning' 2 BILLION taxpayer dollars to a company - the 7th largest company in oil -- who has just signed a deal to provide an oil increase to ............CHINA. There is, of course, no deal to sell to the U.S. Why would there be?

Let's is NOT okay to drill offshore of the United States. It is NOT okay to provide jobs for American citizens by exploring not only for oil, but by building efficient refineries, exploring new ways to get to oil in our own country.

The oil in America would end any 'hold' the countries in the Middle East now have on us. We could quit sending billions of dollar to them. We could tell the President to support the only the ones who support the U.S. (e.g. Israel).

So, can someone explain it to me as though I am in kindergarten? Because none of the explanations coming from Washington, D.C. are making any sense whatsoever.

Simple questions.....

From the moment a child is old enough to write their own name, responsible parents/adults preach to them that they must read anything before signing it. These include, but are not limited to: a loan, Will, Power of Attorney, Medical Power of Attorney, End of Life decisions, a contract to buy a car, land, house or business, etc. When applying for something as simple as a Marriage License, each party is asked to read it to make certain all information is correct & they understand what they are signing.

So, why do Senators & Representatives think it is perfectly acceptable to constituents to NOT read something as important, as critical, as a BILL THAT IS MAKING OR CHANGING LAWS??? Some in Washington have even found this demand a source of amusement to them reasoning they are so darn busy they would never get anything done if they had to actually READ what they are voting (signing off) on. Maybe this is our best indication Washington is doing a lot of make-work, a lot of pork barrel spending, writing of ridiculous &/or unnecessary bills while pretending they actually give a damn about the voters.


You write a check & are asked for a PHOTO I.D. Often, when you make a purchase using a credit card, you are asked for a PHOTO I.D. When a policeman stops you, he asks for a PHOTO I.D., registration for the vehicle & valid insurance information. When you apply for a Passport, you must have a valid PHOTO I.D. When you check bags at the airport you must provide a valid PHOTO I.D.
When you board a plane, you must have a valid PHOTO I.D. When you make a bank deposit that requests cash back you must have a valid PHOTO I.D.
These are ordinary events in a person's life.

So, since we have the extraordinary PRIVILEGE of being able to VOTE in our democracy, why would ANYONE object to providing a valid PHOTO I.D. in order to ensure their vote is not only VALID, but they are the true & actual person they represent themselves to be?

It will not affect or disenfranchise the poor voter, the elderly voter, or the brand new voter. This argument is the last, LEAST valid, of any to not enact this measure. Photo I.D. will only protect each vote from fraud & ensure the validity, the honesty of the voting booth.

Only someone who truly wants to allow cheating in elections would ever argue against this.
So tell me: why, other than supporting cheating in elections, would anyone object to presenting a valid PHOTO I.D. when it comes to such a serious honor: the privilege to vote?

(If you support cheating at the voting booth, does this mean YOU cheat? Are you fine with your family, children, & friends cheating? Does it mean you do not mind being cheated? I'm guessing if someone cheats you, you go ballistic! The same ol' song: do as I say, not as I do. Geez, that is the same song most politicians live.)

Where is Reyes? MIA again?

House of Rep Reyes who is supposed to represent this district, met with 'real' people at a breakfast held by Northeast city council rep Carl Robinson & found a)they are from every walk of life, b)every color, c)every political philosophy, d)fed up with lies & half-truths, e)are naturally distrustful of not only him but EVERY politician, f)fed up with him not listening to their calls, emails & letters & g)fed up with him voting more debt for our nation. He also, IF HE WERE HONEST, would now admit that dismissing his constituents & the needs/calls to meet face to face in a 'townhall meeting' would not be a riot, nor would it necessarily be raucous/rude.

Reyes' answer to NOT having to meet with the public at large is to tell constituents to "call his office", "make an appointment", etc. Well, did HE make an appointment with you when he was begging for votes? Did he personally call you, was it a pre-recorded call or one from a campaign worker? He is only adding more insults to intelligent people. Can you are now see the false results created by voting a straight Republican or straight Democrat ticket?
I believe he owes an apology to the district he is supposed to represent. I believe he owes it to his district to actually meet face to face as many times, as often, as requested. HE WORKS FOR THE PEOPLE IN HIS DISTRICT. HE NEEDS TO LISTEN & VOTE THE MAJORITY WILL. Now, do I think this will happen? NO. Here's why: he was just re-elected. So, his belief (& if past history is any clue) that the voters have a short-term memory may be justified. Unless there is someone running against him who can remind all the voters of his foibles, votes that his district did not support, etc. - unless the opposition is VERY strong in pointing out his ignoring people when it was the MOST important, he will very likely be in office after the next election. Also, it will take people of the district actually THINKING about their votes rather than checking off "straight republican" or "straight democrat". Are you the voter who chose a "straight ??????" option in your voting? If so, please let me know:
  • Were you in a hurry?
  • Why did you vote?
  • Did you study the candidates for each position?
  • Did you take the easy way out?
  • Did you honestly not care who was elected?
  • Are you so much in a 'party' line that you do not take each candidate for each position seriously?
  • Do you now feel well-represented in Washington, D.C.?
  • Do you feel your senator, rep, etc. actually listens to you?
  • Do you trust what your political representatives say?
While I am glad reyes finally had to come face to face with REAL people, not hand-picked for their fawning obedience as with bho, he also had to realize no one was frothing at the mouth or screaming at him or carrying nazi signs or advocating violence - even as he spouted the 'party line' about HR3200. Also, I notice there is no mention of an apology & distancing himself from the nasty, horrible names being used for those who question HR3200 or disagree with more government in people's lives. Btw, if he is so willing to have the government take over health insurance & wipe out that industry - basically making any employees now the responsibility of taxpayers - & is willing to be 'enrolled in the public option', what other 'out' is there for him? He knows darn well that federal employees, ALL fed employees, will be exempt somehow. There will be a loophole, an addendum, some way he & his family will be treated differently. There always is & they will continue to make sure of it in Washington, D.C. Because if the executive, legislative, & judicial branches are good at one thing, it is that they are always figuring a way 'out' for themselves. WE, THE PEOPLE, (remember us?) -- we deserve better.

thanks, Senator harry reid, Nevada -- you have given me a new name now:


does it make you feel better to label me? you, sir, are worse than any of the names you & your cohorts are spewing.

WE, THE PEOPLE, have the right, the duty, the obligation to question our government & especially those in office. I am simply exercising my duty, my obligation & my RIGHT by asking questions & expressing my opinions.

laugh AND cry....

I found this on the net & thought you could use a giggle (along with disgusted sighs) about how completely ridiculous those in the senate & house are -- worse, remember WHO PUT THEM THERE!!!!!

It is from Check out for more......

Dumbness on the First Day

Andrew Roth

Over 400 bills were proposed by congressional members on the first day of business yesterday. Jim Harper offers up some of his "favorites". Here are ones that stuck out in my mind:

Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY), an obvious Obama fan, is proposing (H.J.Res. 5) "an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.

Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) is proposing a bill (HR 14), "To provide for ocean acidification research and monitoring, and for other purposes." I love the opaqueness of the often used tag line: "for other purposes."

Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) is proposing a bill (HR 73), "To provide for the collection of data on traffic stops."

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is proposing (S. 38) "A bill to establish a United States Boxing Commission to administer the Act, and for other purposes." This chestnut is an long time favorite for McCain. The sport of boxing apparently is so out of control that it needs to be reigned in by the federal government.

Who were the most prolific bill writers? In the House:

Elton Gallegly (R-CA): 19 bills
Jose Serrano (D-NY): 16 bills
Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX): 15 bills

In the Senate:

David Vitter (R-LA): 34 bills
Dianne Feinstein (D-CA): 24 bills
Dan Inouye (D-HI): 23 bills

Now, not all proposals are big government spending plans. Rep. John Linder (R-GA) has re-introduced his favorite bill (HR 25) - to abolish the IRS and implement the Fair Tax. And Rep. John Campbell (R-CA) offered up a couple of gems. He wants to abolish the Appropriations Committee (H.Res. 17) and he wants to allow people who want higher taxes to be able to voluntarily send the federal government some of their extra money on their tax returns (HR 87).

Who am I?

As you read the following words, please consider exactly who is labeling me - & anyone who DARES even question bho. Then stop for a moment to wonder: how long before there are epithats hurled at you? Even as Nazi Germany was building it's power, using snitches, denigrating those who even dared question Hitler, most those "this too will pass".

I know how THAT turned out. Do you? Do you know history? If not, now would be a good time to educate yourself. But, you had better do it quickly....time is going by fast.

What's in a name?
  • Un-American
  • rabid
  • Nazi
  • fake angry
  • know-nothing
  • loud mouth
  • agitator
  • terrorist
  • Brownshirt
  • KKK member
  • racist

  • ignorant
  • redneck
  • trash
  • trashy
  • liar
  • peon
  • idiot
  • rabid right-wing extremists" bought & paid for by K Street Lobbyists

Did I leave any out? Feel free to let me know what I have left off.

The hardest part is that I am none of these 'labels' but somehow, by using words like this certain ones in the bho administration & congress can feel better about themselves by 'labeling' me. So, feel free. I know who I am. I know what I believe in. I know what I stand for. I am not ashamed of who I am & do, in fact, like myself. I am comfortable in my own skin. If it makes YOU feel more in control to assign negative, nasty, evil words to me then be my guest.

Just keep in mind: at some point, you too, no matter how hard you try to avoid it, will eventually be labeled with many of the same words; no matter how liberal or liberated you believe you are, you will become a target.

These words, by the way, do not diminish me. They do inspire me that I am on the right path - questioning what the government is doing & why. If this makes bho nervous, he should be. He has broken every promise he made to the American people at large. I phrase it as such because he had no qualms about signing an executive order within a few days of taking office, restoring abortions in Mexico & other countries paid for by the American taxpayer. As vote after vote has shown, the support for abortion-on-demand is NOT in favor with Americans, yet he crammed it down our throats by taking money out of OUR government to give to other countries to accomplish his goals for a small portion in favor of abortion-on-demand.

I have 3 children. I have 11 nieces & nephews. My oldest nephew & his wife just brought a beautiful little girl into this world. While I am thrilled for them (I love being a parent), I am also terrified about the re-making of this country that bho & cohorts are trying. They are hell-bent on destroying capitalism & making everyone except their 'elite' friends/supporters live in a 'socialist' society.

Only by educating ourselves, THOROUGHLY educating ourselves, can we hope to prove that the bill the house of reps passed was flawed beyond belief. I HAVE read the bill. Unlike my senators & reps (Wisconsin or Texas), I know what is in there.

Whether they like it or not, whether they continue to try to find ways to put me down or shut me up, I know what is in there. It is not good for America. It will kill insurance company choices. It will NOT cover those 43million uninsured that bho keeps talking about. The cost is prohibitive. American taxpayers cannot now take on other peoples' mortgages, taxes, car payments, loan payments, AND now, health care. There just is not enough money. Even 'rich people' have limits.

So, snitch away on me. I DON'T CARE. I will continue to question, argue, fuss, protest lack of representation, & generally be a pain in the butt of congress until they start listening to, AND RESPONDING TO, the average American person.

BTW - I am so proud of Katy Abram & her husband, Sam. They represent what is RIGHT with America. If YOU do not know who she is, check youtube for the video of her trying to get her own representative, arlen specter, to listen to, actually hear, & understand her concerns. His answer leaves so much to be desired it is sad. Typical politician in power far past his 'due date'.


Abortion on demand (according to this government administration) will be treated as any "medical condition" according to Obama. So, abortion anytime anywhere is a good thing (per liberals).

End-of-life counseling is mandatory in the house of reps bill passed. In fact, there is a provision for doctors to be paid more when they accomplish this. It will be done on a yearly (or more frequent if needed) basis if the patient is terminally ill or has an incurable condition. So, euthanasia is good (per liberals & Oregonians).

The Death Penalty, reserved for the most heinous criminals, is bad (per liberals & the MSM).

Can someone please explain this to me? Because I just do not get it.

Time to stop......

If it is has not been obvious before, let me be very clear: I am a CONSERVATIVE.

Also, to be clear: I am NOT a homophobe, racist, klan member, right-wing anything, antisemitic, anti-immigration, mean, or rude.

I AM in favor of people having a job rather than a government handout. I AM in favor of LEGAL immigration. I believe the Founding Fathers knew what they were saying in the Constitution & it should be taken at face value, rather than 'interpreted according to the laws of other countries'. I have nothing against another race or religion as a whole.

I do NOT agree with, nor believe in, or support, the Obama agendas -- in any area. His idea of the government taking over businesses is absurd - government is inefficient & ineffective already. He is THE most devisive president in the history of the United States.

When I received the following email, I had to think about it for a while. There are many valid points being made & it would behoove every person, liberal or conservative, to think this through.

Here is the email:
Pray (and vote) that this one never manifests!!!
I don't know the author, but I see the dark and foreboding truth in this brilliant parable.~~

"Dinner with Obama"
Once upon a time, I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President. I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics.

There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it no mind. I live in a free country. There's nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws. My wealth was earned honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the President in a yellow dining room. We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate, and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen. "Sorry about that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry." "I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty.. It was just a dinner roll. "Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass.

Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp. "His brother Eric is very thirsty", said the President. I didn't say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I will play along. I don't want to seem unkind.

My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite. "Eric's children are also quite hungry." With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from under me. I stood,brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the room. "And their Grandmother can't stand for long." I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool.

Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken. I turned back to the President. "Their grandfather doesn't like the cold." I wanted to shout - that was my coat! But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled.

Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table. I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home. Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in.

The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him. "Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven't planned for retirement, and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a sub prime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."

My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor. The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak and drank his wine. I lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth that were water drops. "By the way," He added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories. I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind. There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars." I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which had been his creme brulee. He drained the last drops of his wine.

As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair. He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss. I thought of the years behind me, of
the life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle. Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise that there was no game board between us. What had I done wrong?
As if answering the unspoken thought, the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands.

"You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said.

Wake up America!


I believe we are at the 'dinner roll' stage. Now is the time to tell those in Washington, D.C. that THEY WORK FOR US. We do NOT work for them. THEY WORK FOR US. It is time to make our voices heard.

If you do not speak up now, when will you? If you do not speak up to help correct what is wrong, who will be left to speak on your behalf?

Saturday, August 08, 2009

this is the answer from the prez & his supporters?

bho - you have encouraged the unions to get out & 'take it to' the conservatives AND liberals who are daring to speak out against your policies, proposals & fast-track spending. You have actively encouraged them to 'take it to' those who even DARE ask questions of you.


A reminder: this is America. WE, THE PEOPLE, are not going to simply lie down & take whatever you & your elitist buddies deem to dish out to us peons. Therefore, you started this garbage & you can put a halt to it; IF you have the courage - which I doubt.

Am I angry? Absolutely! Will you & your union thugs cause me to re-think my positions or my questions? Absolutely NOT!

Because of what is happening in many areas with union thugs attacking people who only want access to ask questions of THEIR representatives from congress, you are strengthening the resolve of ALL of those who have questions & issues with your policies/politics/positions.

  • I will continue to attend any townhall meeting available.
  • I will continue to attend any/all TEA Party events.
  • I will make it my mission to alert as many as possible to the tactics you encourage from your supporters, as despicable as they are.
  • I am now more angry than ever.

For anyone still basking in ignorance, please go to to check out the video links available there to show you just what your president is advocating from his union thugs. If you are not disgusted by what you will see, you are in more denial than can ever be corrected by addressing you with just the facts. So, if this is the case, go to a TEA Party event, just to see what is going on, & make up your own mind.

on the new health "care" plan...

If you still believe ObamaCare is what is best for America and have not sent your "VOTE NO" letter to your Members of Congress, maybe Dr. Janda's comments will help you decide what's best.

Written by Dr. Dave Janda
Thursday, 23 July 2009

As a physician who has authored books on preventative health care, I was given the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building in Washington last Friday (7/17).

The presentation was entitled Health Care Reform, The Power & Profit of Prevention, and I was gratified that it was well received.

In preparation for the presentation, I read the latest version of "reform" as authored by The Obama Administration and supported by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid. Here is the link to the 1,018 page document:

Let me summarize just a few salient points of the above plan. First, however, it should be clear that the same warning notice must be placed on The ObamaCare Plan as on a pack of cigarettes: Consuming this product will be hazardous to your health.

The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care. There is no focus on preventing health care need whatever. The plan's method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.

The rationing of care is implemented through The National Health Care Board, according to the plan. This illustrious Board "will approve or reject treatment for patients based on the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient will benefit from the treatment."

Translation.....if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as having an advanced form of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer.....dream on if you think you will get treated.....pick out your coffin.

Oh, you say this could never happen? Sorry.... this is the same model they use in Britain.

The plan mandates that there will be little or no advanced treatments to be available in the future. It creates The Federal Coordinating Council For Comparative Effectiveness Research, the purpose of which is "to slow the development of new medications and technologies in order to reduce costs." Yes, this is to be the law.

The plan also outlines that doctors and hospitals will be overseen and reviewed by The National Coordinator For Health Information and Technology.

This " coordinator" will "monitor treatments being delivered to make sure doctors and hospitals are strictly following government guidelines that are deemed appropriate." It goes on to say....."Doctors and hospitals not adhering to guidelines will face penalties."

According to those in Congress, penalties could include large six figure financial fines and possible imprisonment.

So according to The ObamaCare Plan....if your doctor saves your life you might have to go to the prison to see your doctor for follow -up appointments. I believe this is the same model Stalin used in the former Soviet Union.

Section 102 has the Orwellian title, "Protecting the Choice to Keep Current Coverage." What this section really mandates is that it is illegal to keep your private insurance if your status changes - e.g., if you lose or change your job, retire from your job and become a senior, graduate from college and get your first job. Yes, illegal.

When Mr. Obama hosted a conference call with bloggers
urging them to pressure Congress to pass his health plan as soon as possible, a blogger from Maine referenced an Investors Business Daily article
that claimed Section 102 of the House health legislation would outlaw private insurance.

He asked: "Is this true? Will people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?" Mr. Obama replied: "You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about."

Then there is Section 1233 of The ObamaCare Plan, devoted to "Advanced Care Planning." After each American turns 65 years of age they have to go to a mandated counseling program that is designed to end life sooner.

This session is to occur every 5 years unless the person has developed a chronic illness then it must be done every year. The topics in this session will include, "how to decline hydration, nutrition and how to initiate hospice care." It is no wonder The Obama Administration does not like my emphasis on Prevention. For Mr. Obama, prevention is the "enemy" as people would live longer.

I rest my case. The ObamaCare Plan is hazardous to the health of every American.

After I finished my Capitol Hill presentation, I was asked by a Congressman in the question-answer session: "I'll be doing a number of network interviews on the Obama Health Care Plan. If I am asked what is the one word to describe the plan what should I answer."

The answer is simple, honest, direct, analytical, sad but truthful. I told him that one word is FASCIST.

Then I added, "I hope you'll have the courage to use that word, Congressman. No other word is more appropriate."

Mr. Obama,

I would like to know the following:

  • where do you get the authority to simply take over entire businesses?
  • why are you appointing so many 'czars'?
  • who do the 'czars' answer to?
  • what are each of the 'czars' paid?
  • do the 'czars' receive bonuses?
  • what budget does each 'czar' have?
  • what exactly is the duty of each 'czar'?
  • how many people work for each 'czar'?
  • what are the duties of the people who work for each 'czar'?
  • as you are so anxious to take away the right to a secret ballot when voting on unions, are you also wanting to take away the public's right to a secret ballot?
  • you have called ordinary American citizens who question you & your cohorts "angry mobs" & "organized mobs". Why are ordinary citizens who show up at rallies "angry mobs" when you, yourself, organized ACORN protests, are calling on unions to show up at rallies with their people, & supporting your cohorts in calling names rather than answering questions?
  • why are you so afraid of "ordinary" American citizens?
  • why won't you answer any questions truthfully? i.e. - you lied about your support for the 2nd Amendment Rights of Citizens to Keep & Bear Arms....
  • will you now dodge the above by saying it is "all Eric Holder's doing"?
  • you said "Washington is broken" so why does your staff consist of tax cheats, liars & lobbyists?
  • when told EMPHATICALLY that citizens, taxpayers, voters, did not want the bailouts - why did you & your cohorts push them through?
  • when told EMPHATICALLY that citizens, taxpayers, voters, do not want the healthcare system changed your way, why are you continuing to push it?

My last question for you is this:

YOU, OBAMA, ARE A DISGRACE TO AMERICA. I have been ashamed of Presidents of this country before (i.e. Nixon, Carter, Clinton), but I have never said the following words until now: you, obama, are not MY President.


The following was not written by me however it succinctly expresses how I feel. There are several things I would add, as this letter is purported to have been written in late April. I will add those in my next post. For now, here is the letter.

Oh, and feel absolutely free to 'snitch' on me to the White House. I do not mind one bit.


God Bless America ! We need all the help we can muster.

April 23, 2009

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington , DC 20500

Mr. Obama:

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.

You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America. You are responsible to the citizens of the United States. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia . You don't show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia . How dare you, sir! How dare you!

You can't find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey . You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What's the matter with you?

I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.

What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members - on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven't said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn't!

Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million - not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?

I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

Every real American


If you are not angered by the acts above, you certainly should be with all this prez & his cohorts have done in the 3+ months since this letter was written.

I cannot think of any reason why you would support this prez - unless of course, you hate America.

If this is the case, then make it easy on yourself & all the rest of us & exercise another freedom paid for in blood:

Cash for clunkers and more

As the politicos toot their own horns about how well this program is working out, let me point out several things you may not have thought about:
  • people are putting off purchasing necessary items (i.e. clothes washer, dryer, refrigerator, etc.) because "hey, the GOVERNMENT is giving us money to buy a new car now. The money was yours to begin with -- it is TAX monies collected & now being redistributed to only those foolish enough to rush out to buy a new vehicle. Plus, now you have a car payment!
  • This is getting 'clunkers' & 'gas guzzlers' off the streets. Not really -- only those whose credit can stand this extra payment are able to take advantage of this. Their car may actually only be from 2002 & have low miles. It would have been a good buy for someone graduating from college & needing to buy a car but not able to afford a 'new car' payment or for a family who truly needed another car but again, cannot afford a 'new car'. So, where does that leave them?
  • The program is (shock coming) way behind in processing requests for the 'rebate'. Another government program, staffed by government workers, behind in their work -- who would have ever guessed this would happen? (this is sarcasm!)
  • The very same people who 'planned' the 1 BILLION dollars would last 4 months were incredibly lasted approximately 4 days. Now they have committed 2 BILLION MORE of your tax dollars to this 'program'. Thus, my next question is this: if they are so damn wrong about something as simply as this program is 'supposed' to be, what kind of massive mess will they make if they get their fingers on our healthcare? The plan already includes gutting Medicare & not only does that scare ME, it should scare every single American when you understand you are TURNING OVER YOUR HEALTH CARE TO THE GOVERNMENT if their plans go through.
  • Car dealers, formerly struggling, now have a short-term gain, but what happens to their sales in a year? 2 years? how many people will they be laying off because there is no longer some incentive from the government to buy a new car? I imagine your wait to have repairs will become longer because of them employing fewer people. Plus, the laid off workers will file for unemployment & public aid, etc. So where is the gain?
  • These types of 'saving the people from themselves' programs were started back during the Great Depression. They did NOT work then, will NOT work now. It is time to leave people alone & let the economy recover without any more government intervention. In fact, history has shown that what was done in the name of 'government help' during the Great Depression actually LENGTHENED the Depression. The point of history is to LEARN from our mistakes. Obviously, we are not going in the right direction.
  • Any time the economy takes a 'downturn', there will be pain felt by someone somewhere; we need to go through that pain to come out the other side stronger & more resilient. Having a 'nanny state' will not only NOT take away the pain of the 'downturn', it WILL prolong it. I don't know about you, but I am not in the mood for extending financial pain by government intervention.
People are more resilient than the politicos are giving us credit for & THAT is a complete insult. bho, facing ordinary people, trying to explain a 'government healthcare insurance plan' that even HE does NOT understand, was facing those who actually laughed as he tried desperately to 'soothe the waters'.


Lots of people were fooled. Lots of people fell for the 'hopey, changey' thing bho promised & promoted. He, of course, lied through his teeth. I am surprised lightening did not strike him somewhere along the campaign trail. But, he said what people WANTED to hear: Xanadu was waiting just over the hill if only he were elected. He has blamed everything he does wrong on the former president, taken credit for things the former president actually DID put in place, & screwed up the rest with his meddling in banks & car companies.

He was elected. Now we see that he & his party want control of not only banks & car companies, now it's insurance companies & healthcare. In fact, what will be left if they get their hands into ALL the free markets? The man has already said that we are no longer a Christian nation. So, what are we? He seems to have stopped short of explaining that one.

  • It is TIME.
  • Call your representatives.
  • Repeatedly.
  • Make it a daily ritual.
  • Object to the takeover, IN ANY FORM, of the nation's healthcare.
  • Adamantly object to them voting ANOTHER bailout. It is not #2, it would be #3 - Bush signed off on the first one if you remember.
  • Register & vote the representatives/congressmen/senators OUT.
  • Vote for anyone besides the entrenched party/politico.
  • Go to TEA parties. It stands for Taxed Enough Already, in case you haven't heard.
  • Volunteer to help your local TEA Party. Don't have one? Then start one.
  • Above all, remember everything in our nation USED to be based on WE, THE PEOPLE.

You can help return to this precept. Tell your reps how you feel & let them know that they are being watched. Voting in regular elections is NOT optional.

And, if all else fails, remember that we DO have the ability to RECALL a rep who does not represent us.
