Be Civil?

I regularly receive e-mailings from the NBRA (National Black Republican Association), and I thought this one particularly worthy of posting:

By Frances Rice

It’s a sure sign that Republicans are winning a debate on issues when Democrats, aided by well-meaning civility police pundits and activists, demand that Republicans stop showing their passion and “be civil”.

I am still waiting for those with such a keen sense of civility to demand that Democrats cease their unrelenting and uncivil, even racist, attacks on black Republicans. I won’t hold my breath.

High on the Democrats’ list of those to be denigrated are accomplished black Republicans who do not toe the Democrats’ liberal agenda line. Shamefully, Democrats do not want poor black children to have as role models any black person who does not engage in victim mongering and works hard to become prosperous rather than become dependent on government handouts.

The message that Democrats gives to poor blacks is despicable. If you remain poor, uneducated and vote for Democrats, we will celebrate your victimhood. If you get a good education, get a good job and vote for Republicans, we will denigrate you as "acting white”, a "sellout”, an "Uncle Tom”, a "House Negro”, a "House N-word", a "Lawn Jockey”, and worse..

Brazenly, on the left-wing Internet website called "The News Blog," Democrats posted a doctored photograph of then Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele (now chairman of the RNC) when he was running for a Senate seat, depicting Steele as a "Simple Sambo" with a blackened minstrel-style face, nappy hair and big, think red lips. The cartoon caption read: “Simple Sambo wants to move to the big house”. This contemptible racist stereotype is the same one Democrats used to demean black men during the era of slavery and segregation.

In addition to other outrageous racist images of Dr. Condoleezza Rice produced by several Democrats, cartoonist Jeff Danziger depicted Dr. Rice as an ignorant, barefoot "mammy", reminiscent of the stereotyped black woman in the movie “Gone with the Wind” about the slave era black woman who remarked: "I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' no babies". This is the type of racist stereotype Democrats used to demean black women during the era of slavery and segregation.

Democrats now love Gen. Colin Powell, but spewed out racist attacks on Powell before he endorsed Obama and embraced the liberal agenda of higher taxes and a bigger government to provide poverty producing handouts to blacks.

A video was shot by WKRN Video Journalist Beau Fleenor at Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee that shows Al Sharpton demeaning Gen. Powell and Dr. Rice, when Sharpton was asked to give his opinions about whether Powell and Rice were “House Negroes". That video can be found on the Internet.

An article that appeared in a Portland, Oregon paper was one of many exposing how hardly a ripple of protest was made by black Democrats when Harry Belafonte publicly denounced Gen. Powell as a "House Negro".

With impunity, the late Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy called black judicial nominees, including Judge Janice Rogers Brown, “Neanderthals”. Democrat Senator Harry Reid slurred Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as an incompetent Negro who could not write good English. “Slap at Thomas stinks of racism,” was the headline of the New York Daily News’ December 7, 2004 editorial.

Even black Democrats will be maligned if they dare step off of the Democratic Party’s political plantation. When black Democrat Juan Williams wrote his book entitled "Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-end Movements and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America" that exposed the deplorable conditions in black communities caused by the Democrats running those communities, Williams was denounced on national TV by another black Democrat as a "Happy Negro".

For details about how Democrats during the 1960’s even smeared Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was a Republican, see the article posted on the NBRA website.

“Civility, Ours and Theirs” is an article that provides more details about how Democrats vilify black Republicans while wagging their finger at Republicans about being civil.

Our political discourse can be elevated to the high standards demanded by the civility police only when Democrats are also required to play by the rules of civility.

The Brown Shirts Are Now On Back-Order...

But for now, why not host a "Kids for Obama" sleepover?

First, though, you'll need the official "Kids for Obama" starting kit:
Do you feel like you want to get involved in the political process but you don’t know how? Do you feel like there’s something important coming up in the Presidential elections? Get involved in KIDS FOR OBAMA! Studies have shown that kids can affect their parents and their siblings’ opinions and even change the opinions of older family members . . . including those of voting age. Are you still with me? Great, Let’s get started!
Have fun, kids! And parents, just remember:
"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community."
- Adolph Hitler
Just sayin'...

Maybe you can sing this oldie but goodie at your Barack Obama slumber party...with your Barack Obama matching drape, bedspread and waste basket set.

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste...

From the Inquirer:
No debate: Deluge due to climate change

Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 04:05:00 09/30/2009

MANILA, Philippines—The massive floods that inundated Metro Manila were a chilling reminder of the need to seriously address climate change experts said, warning that the lives of millions were at stake.

More rain fell on Manila and surrounding regions in nine hours on Saturday than the amount Hurricane “Katrina” dumped on New Orleans in 2005.

Why is it that they are able to generalize specific weather events with "climate change," (read GLOBAL WARMING) but they completely ignore the fact that last winter was one of the coldest on record--ever!

If these asshat clowns with an agenda can claim incontrovertible proof of global warming with one weather event, then I can sure as hell claim global cooling from the entire of last winter, and proclaim that we need an increase in greenhouse gases as a result, and call for mandatory SUV ownership and drilling for oil until ANWR looks like Calumet City, Indiana.

If George Bush Was an Idiot...

I received the following in an email--usually I don't pass forwards along, but I found this one at once brilliant in its simplicity along with its ability to cut to the quick:

If George Bush was an idiot...

If George W. Bush had been the first President to need a teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If George W. Bush had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take Laura Bush to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had reduced your retirement plan's holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought this embarrassingly narcissistic and tacky?

If George W. Bush had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had visited Austria and made reference to the non-existent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If George W. Bush had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, would you have winced in embarrassment?

If George W. Bush had mis-spelled the word "advice" would you have hammered him for it for years like Dan Quayle and potatoe as proof of what a dunce he is?

If George W. Bush had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If George W. Bush's administration had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If George W. Bush had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If George W. Bush had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

If George W Bush had proposed to double the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If George W. Bush had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 5 months -- so you'll have three years and seven months to come up with an answer.

Regarding The Right to "Choose."

A libertarian acquaintance of mine and I share a number of views in common; we are both for smaller and less intrusive government, as well as the right to pursue happiness in ways of our own choosing.

Where my libertarian acquaintance and I part ways is the question of abortion, and a woman's so-called right to choose whether or not to maintain the developing life inside her womb. Although this acquaintance is personally pro-life, she appears to think that it is not necessarily the role of government to dictate whether a woman must carry a baby to term.

I wrote,
"I can get behind much of what you believe in.

Except for the abortion part.

You see, my right to do what I want with my fist ends with your face.

And the right of what a person can do with his or her body ends when that person's choice interferes with another innocent person's God-given right to live, no matter what station in life or life stage one finds oneself. (read it in the preamble to the Constitution)

The woman's so-called right to "choose" is not a question of freedom. It goes much deeper than that. It's a question of one's fundamental right to exist. When that is called into question, the right to "freedom" is moot."
Yes, one has a right to engage in the behavior that may or may not produce a life. But one does not have a right nor necessarily the freedom to escape dealing with the consequences of one's choices, especially when that choice impinges on another's fundamental right of existence.


My correspondent wrote back:
I am personally a pro life person! That is why I say freedom of choice - instead of prochoice- the pro choice folks believe pro choice means their choice – I disagree- I believe pro choice means that I am freed to choose life and I DO! Listen to last weeks show and you will hear me say so!
To which I responded,
Yes, one has a right to engage in the behavior that may or may not produce a life. But one does not have a right nor necessarily the freedom to escape dealing with the consequences of one's choices.
She went on...
I agree Leo- we just can not stop people from doing things they want to do- I wish I could but that is God’s job not mine! I answer to God and so will they!
To which I responded
No, we cannot stop people from doing things they want to do, but we CAN hold them accountable.

We have laws that codify against murder. We have laws that codify against robbery and crimes against person and against property.

Why should the unborn, developing human being be unprotected by the rule of law? Why should their status and the protections afforded them be any different than any other human being?

Are the unborn 3/5ths of a person? Are you comparing the unborn to slaves, with no rights, especially that of the most fundamental right of all, that being the right to exist?

You say you are pro life.

I don't believe you.

Either you believe that the developing fetus is a human being, and is entitled to unalienable rights, or you don't.

Let's be honest, here. be continued?


My correspondent wrote back:

I told where I stand if you are going to call me a liar- we have nothing else to discuss.

Have a good evening.
To which I responded,
Betty Jean, what I am saying is that you are being intellectually dishonest.

You say you are pro life, a position which, by definition, holds that the developing fetus is indeed human; yet you are unwilling to assign human rights to that which you ostensibly deem human.

Realize that saying, "I'm pro-life, and I wish everyone was, but I understand that others will make different decisions," is not in the same league as saying, "I like coconut on my donuts, and I really wish everyone liked coconut on their donuts, but I understand that others may not." The former carries with it real life and death implications, while the latter is merely a preference.

Realize that when one says one is pro-life, that means that one truly understands that it is indeed a separate and distinct life developing within the womb. Yes, a LIFE.

Of course, saying that you're pro-life but simultaneously recognize other women's right to "choose" may score you points by those on both sides of the issue who haven't taken the time to parse the illogicality of what you stated. But realize that by saying what you're saying, you have effectively negated your pro-life stance by its very definition. You have in effect made a non-statement.

Yes, Betty Jean, I am challenging your beliefs by identifying the inconsistencies inherent in that which you state you believe.

I understand that can be an uncomfortable feeling.

But if I can see the inconsistency in your stated beliefs, it is my contention that others in your audience can also see that inconsistency, which may lead them to question your credibility.

What I'm asking is that you take a step back, and take a good, long, hard look at your stated belief regarding abortion.

Don't rationalize it. I mean, take an honest look at it.

Again, if you can't be honest with me, at least be honest with yourself.

Consider this an exercise in constructive criticism.

Go to Jail...Go Directly to Jail..

..and/or pay $25k if you try to opt out of Obamacare:

Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."

The note was a follow-up to Ensign's questioning at the markup.

Hopenchange, baby!

The Million Med March

Doctors across the nation are furious about health care and aren't going to take it anymore!

From Medscape (subscription required)

"I'm tired, mad as hell, and just not going to take it anymore," says Richard Chudacoff, MD, a gynecologist from Las Vegas. "I am going to Washington, DC. At noon, on Thursday, October 1, 2009, I will be on the Mall with a few other physicians."

Dr. Chudacoff is not talking about vacation plans. Rather, he intends to unite with other physicians in what he calls the Million Med March.

"We simply decided that we will not work that day and perhaps the day before and maybe even the day afterward," says Dr. Chudacoff. "Perhaps we will show the country that physicians are worth more than a $5 copay; that physicians are more important than a mid-level healthcare worker; and that our profession is needed, our services are required, and our practice is a calling to be respected, not a trade that is to be negotiated to the lowest bidder."

A letter posted by Dr. Chudacoff on in June has been spreading like wildfire across the Internet, finding its way to personal blogs, discussion groups, and professional forums. On June 23, it was posted to Medscape's Physician Connect (MPC), a physician-only discussion group, where it sparked a flurry of responses. A number of MPC postings suggest that Dr. Chudacoff will have plenty of company on October 1.

"Finally, something constructive," says a dermatologist. "I'll see you in DC on October 1. Some of the office staff, including our nurse, expressed a wish to be there too. Bring spouses and friends and anybody else who actually cares about healthcare in the US."

"I have cleared my schedule and plan to attend," responds a vascular surgeon. "I think this type of grassroots action, unaffiliated with hospitals, insurance companies, or the AMA, is likely to get the most sympathetic attention."

"This is the best proactive effort I have heard from physicians," says an MPC family medicine physician. "Actions speak louder than words."

"I can be there without changing my schedule," adds an anesthesiologist. "I was just terminated from my office-based practice where I have been for 7 years."

One physician's decision to take a stand and unite with his fellow colleagues has given doctors a simple way to show the public and elected officials that healthcare, for them, is not a political agenda. It is their life and livelihood. And in recent weeks, the partisan discussions in the Senate and House of Representatives on healthcare legislation have seemingly marginalized -- and at times even maligned -- physicians.

"I was for nationalized healthcare," says a family medicine physician, "but I thought that meant providing a safety net for needy Americans. But this monster of a bill is something quite different."

"Politicians and payers have turned our profession into a political football," retorts an anesthesiologist.

President Obama's recent tonsillectomy remark, in which he insinuated that doctors make medical decisions based on what they would be paid for a procedure rather than the best treatment for the patient, has further incensed physicians. "As a hard-working, conscientious physician, I am offended. It's like racial stereotyping. Only now it's about a group that is mostly overworked, tired, and saving people's lives," retorts a family medicine practitioner.

It is clear that every day Obama and his marxist minions try to ram this albatross of a "health care" plan down Americans' throats spells more and more certain doom for the far-left power structure of this nation.

The full measure of ire from the American people is yet to be felt, but feel it they will.

An Evening With Ross Ueckert...

Ross is passing on his way through to St. Cloud, so he, Myrna (Ross' sister), my wife and I got to spend some time together.

First we toured Clemens and Munsinger Gardens (this is a must see for anyone visiting St. Cloud), after which we had a great dinner at Ciatti's. We talked extensively about his travels and about life in general; and the more I spoke with Mr. Ueckert, the more I realized that I was speaking with a national treasure. His love for this country and for the people he's met along the way is nothing less than genuine.

I believe that Ross' journey has only begun, and by the time he makes his way to the Lincoln Memorial, he will have touched the lives and hearts of millions of Americans. It is more than apparent that one individual can make a difference.

The movie, Forrest Gump, began with a scene of a feather floating with the wind, flitting about and traversing to wherever the wind took it. This was done as a metaphor to illustrate how Mr. Gump touched all those he came in contact with, not by design, not purely by accident, but seemingly by divine providence.

Mr. Ueckert's walking journey has thus far been similar to Forrest Gump's; one of unexpected twists and turns, yet through it all, there appears to be a Divine providence, steering his every move, putting him in contact with the right people, at the right time, and touching others in a purposeful, God-driven way; and I feel honored and privileged to have been even a small part of his, wonderful, storied serendipitous journey.

Godspeed, Ross and Myrna!

The Power of the Pope

The Pope and Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd. The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and said, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy?
This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and they'll forever speak of this day and rejoice!"

Pelosi replied, "I seriously doubt that. With one little wave of your hand? Show me."

It was then that the Pope slapped her.

Obama Protects His Harem

Obama on the sorry state of his state-run newspapers:
"I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding," he said.
Translation: "WTF am I gonna do if my state-run media isn't there to run cover for me?"

In his description of blogging as involving, " serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context" he pretty much described the New York Times, The LA Times, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC CBS...."
Can't say that I blame him.. I mean, why ruin a good thing?

Minnesota Flagline 2009....

I participated today with the Minnesota Patriot Guard's Flagline 2009. The 25-member St. Cloud contingent met at Perkin's and proceeded to Randall, to top off our tanks before we headed off to Ripley. But little did I realize that 25 members would actually morph into the 1000 plus riders from across the state:We congregated at Pillager before we made our final trek toward Ripley

All through our ride, there were well-wishers on the side of the road, waving flags and showing their support! It was an unbelievable rush seeing nothing but bikes both in front and behind you for as long as the eye could see, as the line of bikes stretched for over a mile.

The most poignant part of our ride went through the Veteran's Cemetery near Ripley, and it was at once awe inspiring and tearful, as we honored our brave men and women who gave their all for the cause of freedom.

All in all, around 1400 flags lined the road at Camp Ripley. I met some new friends, and got to interact with a lot of our nation's finest men and women.

Story here.

Finally, a project worthy of Murtha's Mettle...

Murtha lands $2 million for sewer project.

Seeing as how just about everything that receives taxpayer largesse courtesy of Jihad Jack Murtha gets named after him, I'm just waiting for the newly remodeled facility to be re-named the John P. Murtha Sewer District.

Just sayin.

The Audacity of Arrogance...

It was Barack Hussein Obama who once crowed about America’s supposed arrogance toward its allies, while on foreign soil:

President Barack Obama has offered an apology for the Bush era, declaring that America had “shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive” towards its allies.

President Obama said the US had “failed to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world”

Physician, heal thyself:

WARSAW, Poland – Poles and Czechs voiced deep concern Friday at President Barack Obama’s decision to scrap a Bush-era missile defense shield planned for their countries.

“Betrayal! The U.S. sold us to Russia and stabbed us in the back,” the Polish tabloid Fakt declared on its front page.

Polish President Lech Kaczynski said he was concerned that Obama’s new strategy leaves Poland in a dangerous “gray zone” between Western Europe and the old Soviet sphere.

Perhaps Barack Hussein Obama, when pondering “Europe’s leading role in the world,” may also ponder that it was Eastern Europe, at one time under the claws of the Russian bear, that was instrumental in breaking the back of Soviet despotism and expansionism, and perhaps they know a thing or two of which they speak.

Yet the arrogance of “The One,” and his administration knows no bounds. But don’t take my word for it. Take the word of our new “regulatory czar“:

“Why is the executive not permitted to construe constitutional ambiguities as it sees fit?” asks Sunstein. “The simplest answer is that foxes are not permitted to guard henhouses … but who is the fox?”

He concludes “the executive should usually be permitted to interpret (law) as it reasonably sees fit.”

“The allocation of law-interpreting power to the executive fits admirably well with the twentieth-century shift from common law courts to regulatory administration if the governing statute is ambiguous,” he writes.

In other words, in Sunstein’s opinion (and no doubt the opinion of his boss, as well), Obama and his administration should have free rein to interpret laws as fits their fancy on a particular day; because, after all, they’re smarter than you, and smarter than the courts.

Hopenchange, baby.

What a Tangled Web They Weave...

The "organizational chart" for Obamacare (this is no joke!):

(click on pic to enlarge)

Margaret Sanger's Version of "I have a dream" Coming true?

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was demonstrably a racist eugenicist:
The aim of the program was to restrict—many believe exterminate—the black population. Under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What's more shocking is Sanger's beguilement of black America's crème de la crème—those prominent, well educated and well-to-do—into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment, elevate the race and garner the respect of whites.
Margaret Sanger, one of the founders of the Malthusian Eugenics movement, thought it a wonderful idea to "do away" with the "undesirables" of society. Unlike Dr. Martin Luther King, who dreamt of the day when little black children and little white children could walk hand in hand, Margaret Sanger (did I mention she was the founder of Planned Parenthood?) dreamed of the day when little white children would be walking hand in hand with each other--with no black children to be found.

And the story in today's AP looks like Margaret Sanger's "dream" (to others, a nightmare) is coming ever closer to fruition:
LONDON (AP) - Giving contraceptives to people in developing countries could help fight climate change by slowing population growth, experts said Friday.

More than 200 million women worldwide want contraceptives, but don't have access to them, according to an editorial published in the British medical journal, Lancet. That results in 76 million unintended pregnancies every year.

If those women had access to free condoms or other birth control methods, that could slow rates of population growth, possibly easing the pressure on the environment, the editors say.

Sounds eerily like...
(Magaret Sanger and fellow eugenicists)... espoused racial supremacy and “purity,” particularly of the “Aryan” race. Eugenicists hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the race by encouraging the “fit” to reproduce and the “unfit” to restrict their reproduction.
Which, when you think of it, is the liberal elitists position on everything. In their mind, their status of being the "enlightened" ones makes them uniquely entitled to the spoils of the world, while the unwashed masses should be happy to live in squalor. While Nancy Pelosi and Algore can have their jetliners to jet themselves and their families to points unknown, the rest of the plebian masses can take public transportation. While Rosie O'Donnell can travel with an armed body guard, she seeks to deny 2nd amendment rights to the plebiscite. While Margaret Sanger and her ideological descendents think that they, the enlightened, are entitled to live, the great 'unwashed masses' beneath them are a waste of resources and thus are not only expendible, but actually have a duty to curb their numbers.

At any rate, you get the picture.

And the more you look at it, the more the picture begins to look like Dorian Gray.

The Road To Hell Is Paved By Obamacare...

If Obama & his like-minded minions have their way Planned Parenthood will be getting their slimy meat hooks into our kids and grandkids:

Under Title V ("Other Provisions") of Obama's "America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009" (the official name for the bill, H.R. 3200), Subtitle B (School-Based Health Clinics, or SBHC) outlines a program in which the federal government would fund clinics in or near the nation's schools. The administration of these clinics will not rest with the school nurse or anyone who answers to the school administration or parents. Under Section 399Z, "the SBHC sponsoring facility assumes all responsibility for the SBHC administration, operations, and oversight."

According to the bill, a "sponsoring facility" is "a hospital, a public health department, a community health center, a nonprofit health care agency, (or) a local educational agency." Such broad wording outlining the qualifications for government funds and access to schoolchildren could open the door for groups like Planned Parenthood to operate the clinics in schools with no oversight and full federal government support. The organization currently operates over 850 clinics nationwide.

The clinics would be funded by federal grants awarded by the Obama administration, which has made it clear that they expect Planned Parenthood to play an active role in their proposed health care system. In the midst of the recent national debate this summer and during the Congressional recess over the health care plan, members of the Obama administration were meeting with Planned Parenthood staff and making strong overtures over their potential role in health care reform.
Lest you think that this is some tinfoil hat delusional thing, but you may remember when the Obamateur made this speech:
Note also that it was the Obamateur who no less than three times voted against the "Born Alive Protection Act" that would mandate life saving treatment of newborn unborns born alive after an attempted abortion.

And now Obama and his like-minded ghouls at Planned Parenthood want to pass on those time-honored values to your children and grandchildren. The same Planned Parenthood founded by Margaret Sanger, an avowed racist and promoter of eugenics.

So... how's that hopenchange working for you now?

Betty McCollum & Keith Ellison, D (ACORN)

From Anglicat:
This is actually a good news/bad news story. The good news is that Senators Klobuchar and Franken were among the Senate majority this week who voted to cut all federal funding for the corrupt ACORN organization. The bad news is that TWO Minnesota Representatives cast shameful votes AGAINST cutting off ACORN funding: Congressman Keith Ellison and Congresswoman Betty McCollum. Fortunately, 345 sane Representatives took the moral high ground and voted to stop the flow of federal dollars to ACORN.
No doubt Mr. Ellison and Ms. McCullom are merely circling the wagons to protect their gravy-train vote machine.

This isn't the first time that Ms. McCullom rode out on her pale horse to rescue her ideological soulmates:

As a matter of fact, it seems that Mr. Ellison has also been rubbing elbows with the likes of ACORN for quite some time, himself.

It seems that the nuts never do fall very far from the tree, do they?

Paging Neville Chamberlain...

Bush administration policies made it tough on tyrants. Saddam Hussein was toast. Mohammar Khadaffy, seeing the writing on the wall, suddenly turned into a good guy. Even Kim Jong Il thought twice about beating his chest and preening his trollkin hair in touting his nuclear capabilities.

Yep, to paraphrase a rap song, during the Bush administration, it was hard out there for a tyrant.

Enter Barack Hussein Obama: Since his inauguration, Ponyang has re-started its nuke program, Ghadaffi is now supporting Iran's nuclear program, and Iran is...well, kicking its thermonuclear program into full gear.

Ain't it a caution as to the difference nine months can make, now that Barack Hussein Obama is doing his level best to make the world safe for tyranny...
President Obama dismayed America's allies in Europe and angered his political opponents at home today when he formally ditched plans to set up a missile defence shield in Poland and the Czech Republic.

The project had been close to the heart of Mr Obama's predecessor, President Bush, who had argued before leaving office in January that it was needed to defend against long-range ballistic missile attacks from rogue states such as Iran and North Korea.

But it had hobbled relations with Russia, which considered it both a security threat and an unnecessary political provocation in its own backyard.

This of course, comes on the heels of this news:
VIENNA — Experts at the world's top atomic watchdog are in agreement that Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press.

The document drafted by senior officials at the International Atomic Energy Agency is the clearest indication yet that the agency's leaders share Washington's views on Iran's weapon-making capabilities.

It appears to be the so-called "secret annex" on Iran's nuclear program that Washington says is being withheld by the IAEA's chief.

The document says Iran has "sufficient information" to build a bomb. It says Iran is likely to "overcome problems" on developing a delivery system.

At any rate, since Putin and the neo-Soviets in Russia got their way, at the very least, Obama's decision to pull a Nancy will reap dividends in getting Russian cooperation, right?

Not so fast, appeasement breath:

"Those who are talking about a concession to Russia are primarily those who are looking for a bargaining chip in seeking extra dividends of some kind from us," said Dmitry Rogozin, the Russian envoy to NATO, in remarks carried on the Interfax news agency. "In actual fact, the Americans have simply put their own mistake right. And we are not duty-bound to pay for someone to put their own mistakes right."
The Obamateur makes the world less hostile to tyrants, destabilizes the balance of power, and continues to weaken the United States to the point of impotence in the process.

A socialist utopian trifecta.

There. Don't you feel safer, now that hopenchange is here?

Tarryl Clark and Central Minnesota Values...

Hmmm... I just wonder from whom Tarryl Clark will be getting her support and money...

Geeze..Maybe her tweets will give us a clue....
  • Thanks to the Laborers Union for your support and endorsement. It's going to be a fun campaign! Have you joined?
  • The new AFL CIO booth is fabulous and full of fun people! Thanks for all your encouragement!
  • The new AFL CIO booth is fabulous and full of fun people! Thanks for all your encouragement!
  • Spoke at the Famers union booth....I'm ready to work with Cong Peterson in Washington!
  • Glad to have more friends joining the campaign - thanks to Teamsters Joint 32 and Teamsters Local 120 for your endorsements!
  • Got to see my AFSCME, working America and teacher friends. AFSCME's early endorsement has gotten us off to a great start!
  • Thanks to my friends in AFSCME Council 65 for your endorsement! We're off to a great start. Hope you will join too at
  • Proud to have the endorsement of my friends in AFSCME Council 5
So, Tarryl Clark is going to be financed by big unions. Feature that..

Since her first run for State Senate from what now seems like a lifetime ago, Clark has always portrayed herself as a centrist. According to Clark, she will...
...put our community's interests first...fighting for working families, seniors, children, small business owners, and veterans.
Yep. No doubt with all those big union endorsements, Tarryl Clark will really have the interests of small business at heart. That is, in much the same manner as a jackass has the best interests at heart for the blades of grass it devours.

As far as putting the community's interests first,
Made my first post of the Congressional campaign at DailyKos: Read, join the conversation, become part of the campaign!
Yeah. Now there's some Central Minnesota values for you.

Ross Ueckert--an American Patriot

Ross spoke at our TEA party this past Saturday (9/12) in St. Cloud... below is a video of the speech he gave:
Mr. Ueckert was in Wadena, MN as of yesterday, and he'll continue making his eastward trek until he gets to the Lincoln Monument in D.C., in his words, "Whenever God wants me there." Mr. Ueckert's goal is to have 10,000,000 patriots join him.

After speaking with the contagiously optimistic Mr. Ueckert, that just may be an underestimate.

Regarding Pots & Kettles...

They're telling Congressman Joe Wilson to apologize on the House Floor for yelling, "Liar," (or face censure) when, in effect, Obama told a lie.

Given all the smarmy, self-righteous chest beating by the usual suspects on the left, somehow, I've yet to hear an apology on the House floor for Jack Murtha calling brave Marines in Haditha who were following ROE cold blooded killers.

I may have missed something, but I haven't heard a peep out of Harry Reid for loudly proclaiming that the Iraq war was lost in a preemptive attempt to sabotage the well-being of our troops in hopes that the Petraeus-led surge would fail.

I may have been out to lunch, but I must have missed the time on the House Floor when Nancy Pelosi issued her apology for labeling the CIA liars, or when she publicly labelled George Bush a total failure.

I may have missed the boat, but I still can't remember when John Kerry apologized on the Senate Floor for saying all our soldiers did was to terrorize women and children in the dead of night.

Perhaps I also missed the apology from Algore in his now infamous "HE PLAYED ON OUR FEARS!!!" rant.

I most certainly must have missed the apology issued by then-Senator Hillary Clinton after she as much as called General Petraeus a bald-faced liar, right to his face, during the Senate hearings that supposedly were conducted to assess the success of the surge.

But I don't think I've been living under a rock. I don't think I've been sleeping at all. Because an elitist democrat, no matter how despicable his or her words or actions, NEVER apologizes.

But this-- no, this was the unforgivable sacrilege of Joe Wilson, a Republican slandering not only a democrat, but "The One" himself, by actually-gasp-telling the truth!

Having no leg to stand on to challenge the simple two-word assertion by Wilson (You lied!), just like they had no substantive argument against Joe the Plumber, or against Sarah Palin, the leftwing fever swamp, including their toadies in the media, have now swarmed like a bunch of brain-dead zombies in an all out concerted effort to attack the character of Joe Wilson. Even by going so far as to say--now get this--that he's a--double gasp-- caffiene addict (hey--desperate times call for desperate measures)!

Projection, the tendency to project one's own failings and character flaws onto others, has always been a hallmark of the left.

Their latest senseless tirade against Congressman Joe Wilson is nothing less than symptomatic of their own pathologies.

On Polishing a Turd...

PBO tonight gave a speech dripping with lies, half-truth, gratuitous heart string tugging, condescension, and oh--did I mention LIES?

After projecting the use of fearmongering tactics toward the opposition while immediately utilizing gratuitously inane examples of people supposedly dying without Obamacare, The One went on to state that people unnecessarily utilizing the emergency room was a major factor in increased health care costs. Consequently, his plan would impose a hefty fine on those who chose not to purchase health care insurance, comparing it to the requirement for drivers to purchase car insurance [WORD TO PBO: Driving is an elective act; living is not].<--unless, of course, you happen to be Ezekiel Emanuel --ED]

Getting back to the subject, in the same speech, PBO also stated that his plan would not extend health care for illegal immigrants who, given their status, utilize emergency rooms on a disproportionate basis.

So Okay, Barack--then how do you reconcile the following:

HR 3200 sec 59b pg 170 line 1 nonresident alien exempt from individual taxes (YOU will pay for their healthcare) #912 (via @TheRedDianthus)

Riddle me this, Barry: If you don't extend your highly vaulted public option to illegal immigrants, yet refuse to charge them (like you will the rest of us) for failing to obtain health insurance, how do you figure to stem the tide of illegals flooding our emergency rooms?

In terms of dripping condescension, Obama gave the song and dance about being willing to listen and to discuss opposing viewpoints, yet in nearly the same breath and on more than one occasion, accused those with opposing viewpoints with "..spreading fairy tales."

And isn't it a little difficult to entertain opposing viewpoints when you haven't listened to any since last April?

Obama also utilized the Alinsky tactic of "speaking the language" of your audience while twisting its meaning, as he spoke of the virtues of rugged individualism, while at the same time selling a plan in which individual choices are all but effectively snuffed.

So, in other words, we were just dealt the same old turds we've always been dealt, painted with flowery pastels and verbal lipstick.

Yes, Barack Hussein Obama just spent the better part of an hour tonight attempting to polish a turd.

But polish as he might, anyone with half a brain could still smell the stench from a mile away.

Wednesday Hero Blogburst, 9-9-2009

Last week marked the 3 year anniversary of the Wednesday Hero blogroll .
Chris over at Right-Wing & Right Minded first started the Wednesday Hero posts in '05 and 'took the post public' and began the blogroll in '07, so that others could join in posting them every Wednesday.

It's been an honor and privilege to be a part of the blogroll, and I thank Chris so much for extending the privilege of posting on a weekly basis about our heroes to so many other blogs, my own little blog included.

Because of working extra hours , I totally blanked on putting together the annual slideshow that I send Chris each year for the anniversary until After his Anniversary post

but he has kindly this week sent out that slideshow to the members of the blogroll, so I include it again here

On the first year anniversary of the Wednesday Hero blogroll, the idea just popped into my head that a review of the year's posts in pictures would be a nice way to mark the anniversary. And so I put together a slideshow and sent it to Chris
The One Year Anniversary of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll

After the slideshow I made for the second year anniversary
Sept.1-Two Years of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll

Chris very kindly asked if I'd like to continue to do this every year for the anniversary.

My apologies to Chris, and the Blogroll members, for Not remembering to get the slideshow done in time for the anniversary post.........(next year, I have given Chris permission to send an email jogging my memory that the anniversary is coming up once again.)

Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best ones.....and that's how I view Chris' Wednesday Hero posts........every Wednesday, he makes it possible for bloggers to highlight a Hero that we might never have known about, and makes it possible for so many others on the web to view that Hero also.

Thank You, Chris, for coming up with the powerful idea of the Wednesday Hero posts, and Thank You, for extending the privilege to all of us who belong to the

Wednesday Hero Blogroll

Taking America Back, One Mile at a Time!

Driving east on Highway 10, just outside of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, I came across this fellow:

Ross Ueckert (pronounced EH-kert) is the real deal.

I had heard about Mr. Ueckert a couple of weeks ago on the Scott Hennen show while vacationing in Detroit Lakes, and when I passed him up today on Highway 10, I just had to meet him in person.

A nicer, more courageous man you will not meet. His lips parched on a hot, sunny, August day, Mr. Ueckert had a smile as large as the Red River valley itself, and he appeared overjoyed when I pulled my Dodge Durango along side the road, and, along with my son Darrin, approached him. He immediately held out his hand in friendship as Darrin and I thanked him for what he was doing.

Mr. Ueckert went on to explain that he was walking for two reasons: one, was to raise an awareness among U.S. citizens regarding the encroachment of government upon our freedoms, and the need to take our nation back from the special interests and lobbyists, to push for term limits, and lead us back to the days of "citizen legislators."

The second reason that Mr. Ueckert is walking is for veterans. He thinks it shameful how many of them are treated by the V.A. He related a story, tearfully at times, of walking through North Dakota, when a lady stopped by the roadside to talk with him. When she asked him why he was walking, he told her, "For freedom, and for our veterans." According to Mr. Ueckert, she immediately broke down crying, and gave him a bracelet, bearing the name of a brother of hers who died in Iraq. She then asked him to wear it all the way to Washington, and to give legislators the message that we must not forget our veterans, and to honor their sacrifices.

Mr. Ueckert's sister, Myrna Miller, is an equally patriotic, Godly woman who believes in her brother's mission and is accompanying him, mile after mile. Both Ueckert and Miller derive strength from the passers by who stop to say hello, or just honk their horns in support. "It gives me a bounce to my step," he said. "It makes me wanna walk even faster!"

Mr. Ueckert made it a point to say that his beliefs and his mission were beyond political. "I'm not Republican or Democrat. I'm an independent!" he said. "What I believe in is that we are losing our freedom in this country and heading toward all-out socialism, which is the opposite of which this country was founded. Members of both parties have been responsible for this trend," he stated. He also lamented the chilling effect political correctness has had on our public discourse. "It's getting to the point where people are afraid to speak out. My mission is to let people know that it's okay to speak what you believe. Don't be afraid to say what you think! I'm not perfect; I have a past that people will try to use against me. But I don't care. My message is bigger than I am." By doing what he's doing, Ueckert's dream is to build up an overwhelming groundswell of independent conservatives whose voice cannot be ignored. "If we can get everyone together, to know that they are not alone, that will embolden people to take action, and Washington will have no choice but to listen," he said.

Ueckert also spoke of the power of GOD in giving him the strength to carry on his mission. "I have people around the country praying for me," he said. "and I can feel the presence of God on this road and in my travels!"

What was expected to be a five minute conversation turned out to be 25 minutes; but an enjoyable 25-minutes, at that. We were talking like people who have known each other for decades, not minutes. We left with hugs and handshakes, but not before a pleasant surprise. I explained to Mr. Ueckert that we were going to be having a TEA party in St. Cloud this Saturday at 10am at Lake George, and asked him if he would like to speak. Mr. Ueckert seemed genuinely excited at the opportunity. He also has a commitment to speak at a Fergus Falls Tea Party rally, but will try to do both on the same day.

As I drove the Durango with Darrin and my wife in tow, I sensed that my life was now richer; that there was indeed real hope left in this crazy world, and that hope has a name.

And that name is Ross Ueckert.

So.. Who's Raising YOUR kids?

"Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted." -Vladimir Ilyich Lenin-
The St. Cloud school system, in particular, Technical High School, has seen it fit to air the Obama indoctrination address. From an email to parents and media from the St. Cloud Superintendent:
The President will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning. He will also call for a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, parents and educators to ensure that every child in every school receives the best
education possible so they can compete in the global economy for good jobs and live rewarding and productive lives as American citizens.
What Superintendent Steve Jordahl conveniently fails to mention is the agenda, behind the agenda:

Students in grades pre-K-6, for example, are encouraged to "write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president. These would be collected and redistributed at an appropriate later date by the teacher to make students accountable to their goals."

Teachers are also given guidance to tell students to "build background knowledge about the president of the United States by reading books about presidents and Barack Obama."

During the speech, "teachers can ask students to write down key ideas or phrases that are important or personally meaningful."

For grades 7-12, the Department of Education suggests teachers prepare by excerpting quotes from Obama's speeches on education for their students to contemplate -- and ask as questions such as "Why does President Obama want to speak with us today? How will he inspire us? How will he challenge us?" [All that's missing is an altar and an incense burner--Ed]

Admittedly, All was not lost in terms of educational value for those who would read Jordahl's tome. After all, he gave his readers an excellent lesson in dripping condescension:
There is some push back by some that this speech will be an indoctrination
speech on liberal values. Parents may be contacting our local schools and demanding that the web broadcast not be seen by their children or they will keep their children out of school. Expect the hype on this to build over the long weekend.
Forgive us, Mr. Jordahl, if we're just a mite bit suspicious over the intentions of a President who throughout his life surrounded himself with radicals with hatred in their hearts for the America of our founding. Forgive us assholes, Mr. Jordahl, if we don't quite trust a man who would appoint an avowed communist to a position of considerable power in Washington. Forgive the great unwashed, Mr. Jordahl, for being just a tad bit leery for a man who in his life has freely associated with domestic terrorists (no, not the kind who attend TEA parties, the kind that really blow things up!)

But that' just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. While Mr. Jordahl found it fit, in the name of education, of course, to air a leftist propaganda piece that would make Josef Goebbels sport a woody, the very same Mr. Jordahl somehow couldn't find it within himself to allow our 6th District Congresswoman, Michele Bachmann, to utilize the St. Cloud Tech High School gym for a Townhall Meeting. On a Saturday.

No agenda here. Nothing to see here. But Mr. Jordahl explains:
This is the first time an American president has spoken directly to the nation's school children about persisting and succeeding in school.
Wrong again, sycophant-breath:

President George H.W. Bush gave an address to schools nationwide in 1991, from a junior high school in Washington, D.C. News reports from the time said the White House hoped that the address would be shown at schools nationwide, and Bush began his remarks by saying he was talking to "millions" of students "in classrooms all across the country."

So, even though Mr. Jordahl sees nothing wrong with subjecting our kids to taken with the accompanying lesson plans, what amounts to pure propaganda; yet he has difficulty with allowing space to be utilized for an elected congresswoman's mandate to allow herself access to her constituents.

So, parents. Are you comfortable with who's raising YOUR kids?

We Don't Need No Thought Control...

Unless you've been living under a rock, by now you have heard that our children will begin their school year with some kind instruction indoctrination by our Dear Leader.

Anyone remember this gem?

OR this?

Will the hand that rocks the cradle be the parents, or will it be the state?

Hopenchange, baby!

Barack Hussein Obama, supposedly the first post-partisan, post-racial president, whose lofty rhetoric and god-like demeanor was supposed to for the first time, bring people together in a joyous orgy just dripping with gobs and heaps of hopenchange and butterfly farts.

That's the bill of goods we were sold last November when, in what was undoubtedly a collective drunken stupor, a majority of Americans voted for this bozo for the most powerful office in the world.

Well, Obamatons--how do you like the hopenchange now?(click on pic for full size)

The above screenshot was on and was pulled off earlier today. It contains so much Orwellian socialist/communist gobbledygook that it would have made the copywriters at Pravda during the heyday of the Soviet Union green with envy. At any rate, they would be extremely proud of Komrade Obama's efforts.

You see, in Barack Obama's/Jeremiah Wright's/Bill Ayer's (insert your favorite Obama associate here) world, Democrats/liberals loudly protesting, breaking windows, tipping cars over, intimidating voters at polling places with paramilitary uniforms and clubs, and committing acts of arson are merely good citizens exercising their patriotic duty toward freedom of speech and dissent. But in the same world, there also exist deniers whose mere verbal protestations of The One's plan for heaven on earth amounts to acts of domestic terrorism.

For in Barack Obama's world, as in the world of many leftists, it's the thought that counts, not the action. In Barack Obama's world, freedom of verbal dissenting speech is far more threatening than an angry mob lobbing Molitov cocktails. In Barack Obama's world, freedom of dissenting speech is even more of a threat than Islamofascists flying airliners into crowded buildings, or even of perpetrating a bloody massacre of women and children. For in the twisted liberal mind, true acts of terrorism do not exist on a physical plane, but rather on a mental plane.

So threatening is the freedom of political speech to Barack Hussein Obama, that it must be squelched utilizing any means at their disposal, including marginalizing and demonizing those that practice it, as well as gaining the ability to shut down any means of spreading their verbal terrorism.

First Amendment be damned. They have an agenda to push.

Little did Obama's voters know that 'The One's" promise of hope and change would more resemble a gulag in Siberia than any form of earthly utopia.

The Lion of Leinenkugel...

Iowahawk never fails to hit a home run!

Wednesday Hero Anniversary

Today marks the third anniversary of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll. Not the actual Wednesday Hero posts. Those posts were started in 2005. This marks the third year of when these posts went public for anyone to post them. And it's taken off like gangbusters. People have signed up and wanted to take part in honoring those who do what they do in the name of freedom. At one point reaching over 100 participating sites. Thank you all who have signed up and those of you who read and comment on these posts. These people, whether they're actually in the military or are just doing something to aid those in the military, deserve to be remembered.
