ALOHA, ALL!! Never heard of Agenda 21? Why am I not surprised. Alert HDR reader George gave me a heads-up about this Soros plan to be implemented by the U.N. (yep…whenever I hear either of those names red flags fly!) Agenda 21 is defined by the United Nations as a “comprehensive plan for action to be taken globally, nationally, and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups in every area in which humans impact the environment.” Apparently Glen Beck devoted a show to this recently (I’m on the road again and missed it.) Beck sarcastically observed that the scheme “doesn’t get spooky until Section 1” when it outlines a plan for social and economic dimensions, i.e. social justice, which focuses on the redistribution of wealth (socialism), changing consumption patterns, changed population, and sustainable settling. Be alert and aware, HDR readers! Under the guise of environmentalism and social justice, our freedom is being taken away.

Is this the type of healthcare system we want? In Britain, the breast cancer patients ‘too old’ to save – Common American Journal ”Elderly women are being denied life-saving breast cancer surgery that is routinely given to younger patients, alarming research reveals. Some doctors look at a patient’s age in their notes – and decide on a treatment plan before they have even met them, experts warn.” Sure sounds like a “death panel” to me.
Golf made news this weekend. Obama, Boehner Play Golf – WSJ.com No scores given….but hubby says Barry is a hacker. Wanna bet if he had done better than Boehner that we’d know about it? Then there’s this: So “under God” was omitted twice – TWICE! Not intentional? Sure.
I’ve got nothin’ to say here: Obamacare Waivers Climb to Nearly 1,400 | Breaking news and opinion on The Blaze
Excellent analysis of Barry’s anti-Israel agenda. Articles: Barack O’Bully Wants to End Israel ”Barack Hussein Obama is therefore a practical racist — he can proclaim all the lovely sentiments he wants to, finely tuned to whichever audience he wants to sucker, but his stated, practical goal is to shrink Israel into the tiniest and least defensible borders possible. It’s like telling America to go back to the original thirteen colonies.”
Barry’s so brilliant he ignores his lawyers. Obama Overruled Two Top Lawyers on Libya – Common American Journal ”We don’t need Congressional approval because this is not technically a hostile action (because we don’t have ground troops in Libya). Tonight the NYT has a major bombshell: Two top lawyers — Jeh C. Johnson, the Pentagon general counsel, and Caroline D. Krass, acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — told The White House otherwise.” Oh yeah…it’s a “kinetic military action.” That’s not considered “hostile”?
Holy Moley! Now Barry’s Chief of Staff throws up his hands: White House’s Daley seeks balance in outreach meeting with manufacturers ”Daley said he did not have many good answers, appearing to throw up his hands in frustration at what he called “bureaucratic stuff that’s hard to defend. Sometimes you can’t defend the indefensible,” he said. IS IT 2012 YET?????????
You mean we can eat corn now? Ethanolics Anonymous | FrontPage Magazine ”The Senate voted to repeal ethanol tax credits in a bipartisan 73-27 vote. The measure is expected to save the federal government $31 billion over the next five years, money that will be applied to deficit reduction.”
Final Thought: ”Any of the people on this stage would be a better president than President Obama.” –Mitt Romney during GOP debate. I agree - Keep that in mind, regardless of who the GOP nominee is!!!!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
Comedians Are Jumping On 0bama Big-Time: “What was Obama before all this? He was a community organizer — pretty much a made up job with unknown responsibilities, as far as I can tell. I doubt Obama even knew what he was supposed to do in that job. And after community organizer, he was a legislator who voted yes, no, and present on things — a pretty simple job at which he reportedly was average. So what in his resume gives anyone the idea he would know how to do anything about a huge environmental disaster? What in his previous experience gives us any inkling he knows the first thing about economics? Why are we angry at him for not knowing things there was no reason to ever think he would know? … It’s like we took a fry cook from McDonald’s and decided to make him a neurosurgeon because he looked good in a surgical mask and then got mad at him when he killed his first patient. Who is really to blame here?” –humor columnist Frank J. Fleming YOU CAN READ MORE OF THIS SPOT-ON ANALYSIS HERE
Serious Pundits Are Jumping On 0bama Big-Time: “Community organizers and law professors don’t know how to handle oil spills. But to the left, it is an environmental issue pure and simple. Each barrel of oil that flows into the Gulf is a sin against nature and alienates those for whom environment is the key issue. And Obama can ill afford to lose them. So Obama is stuck, drowning in oil with no relief in sight.” – Dick Morris YOU CAN READ MORE OF THIS SPOT-ON ANALYSIS HERE
Generals Are Jumping On 0bama Big-Time: OK, what McChrystal did was wrong but let’s consider the circumstances and environment that made him even consider bad-mouthing his CIC. McChrystal is history, I’m sure. 0bama has no choice but to fire him. But what makes an experienced, career General so extremely frustrated that he lashes out like that? You decide: Gen McChrystal Apologizes For Rolling Stone Profile Then again, I wouldn’t put it past Rolling Stone and its writers to set up the General.
Impeachable Action? Of course, it will never happen with the current Democrat control of both Houses of Congress, but 0bama’s shakedown tactic with BP could be illegal and beyond the powers of his office (just like taking over GM was.) Is 0bama’s BP Shakedown An Impeachable Offense? Meanwhile, Texas Representative Barton is forced by the GOP to apologize for his apology to BP….the GOP could have used this to highlight 0bama’s over-reaching authority but they blew another golden opportunity. And it turns out the 0bama administration knew about cracks in the Deep Water Horizon Well several months ago…and did nothing about it: It’s 0bama’s Fault! White House Knew Oil Rig Could Blow Back in February My Mom has said all along that this was planned so 0bama could gain more control and pass statist energy legislation. (Mom lived in a fascist dictatorship as a child.) Always listen to your mother.

DUH!!!! Supreme Court Upholds Law Banning Support of Terror-Linked Groups The Supreme Court on Monday upheld a federal law that bars ”material support” to foreign terrorist organizations, rejecting a free speech challenge from humanitarian aid groups. The 6-3 ruling said that the government may prohibit all forms of aid to designated terrorist groups, even if the support consists of training and advice about entirely peaceful and legal activities. Pay no attention to the guns in our “humanitarian aid” boat…. BUT WAIT!!! Jimmy Carter’s not happy: Carter Says Court Ruling Cramps His Terror Talks Please, Jimmy, go back to your peanut farm.
What Will They Think Of Next? The Democrat-controlled Congress still hasn’t passed a budget (it was due April 15.) But they are fretting that if they introduce a document with lots of red ink during an election year it could be bad news for their chances in November – the horror! So here is their solution: House Dems Prepare Alternative To Budget That Would Avoid Deficit Vote Pay no attention to the $13 trillion deficit…we have not yet begun to spend! EARTH TO DEMS – YOU ARE ALREADY IN TROUBLE IN NOVEMBER! BREAKING: Hoyer Admits Dems won’t Pass Budget in 2010 And now Germany is lecturing 0bama on the need to be more frugal – LOL! Germany Urges US To Focus On Debt Cuts Meanwhile, back at the “Tax and Spend Ranch,” 0bama’s Budget Director Resigns Amid Fears Peter Orszag is the first official to quit the 0bama White House. Look for more, and keep your eyes on Hillary – I still think she plans to run against 0 in 2012.
Here’s What They Thought Of Next! In order to protect 0bamacare from legal challenges, the White House is now calling the healthcare mandate a tax. That’s right….Dear Leader himself vehemently denied the individual mandate was a tax in an interview with Stephanapoulos last year. But now the tune has changed and it looks like the DOJ is arguing that state courts can’t interfere with the federal government’s ability to require you to purchase healthcare OOPS!…. I mean collect taxes: Hot Air – Healthcare Mandates Are Taxes After All
“Out of Many, One.” Did you ever wonder about the significance and symbolism of our national seal? The Heritage Foundation has an excellent explanation on their site: Our National Portrait: The Great Seal of The United States As we prepare to celebrate another Independence Day, this is great background as to why and how the Seal was adopted. The Great Seal reflects America’s universal and timeless ideas of liberty, self-government and virtue. Little known fact: the Seal also contains the phrase “God Approves.” Take that, progressives!

Aloha (Goodbye) To Civil Unions? Here in Hawaii, we are awaiting Governor Lingle’s decision on the Civil Unions bill that passed the legislature on its last day in session…as a surprise. Lingle has until July 6 to veto the bill and it was placed on a list of possible vetoes yesterday. Hawaii Gov Buys More Time On Civil Unions Bill

It’s Still Leaking Like A Sieve. No, I’m not talking about the oil spill (although 0bama still hasn’t plugged the hole or sucked up the oil with a straw.) I’m talking about our border. John Kyl of Arizona had a private “tete a tete” with Dear Leader recently and guess what? 0bama told Kyl he’s not going to do anything about the border until he gets amnesty. Here’s a video of Kyl at a townhall meeting explaining what 0bama told him. In Kyl’s words. “He’s holding it hostage.” Can you say “impeachable action” yet again??? UPDATE: As expected, 0bama has his minions out denying Kyl’s assertions: White House Says John Kyl Story Not True
More Lies. In the most outrageous hardly-reported story of the week, it turns out that drilling experts who supposedly recommended a six-month moratorium on off-shore drilling actually did no such thing. The moratorium provision was added by the 0bama administration after the document was signed. Are you kidding me?????? Crude Politics I CAN SEE NOVEMBER FROM MY HOUSE!!!!
BREAKING NEWS - JUDGE STRIKES DOWN DRILLING MORATORIUM. Ah yes, I love the smell of oil in the morning.

Hey Neil – Would You Like Some Tea? I LOVE this story….Neil Abercrombie (aka AberCommie) is running for governor of Hawaii. He recently opened his Maui campaign office with much pomp and circumstance. In attendance were progressives and union bosses, hard-core Democrats and….TEA PARTY MEMBERS? Yep – it turns out members of the Maui Tea Party group weren’t happy with Neil and the fact that he said they were led by “cynical sociopaths.” AberCommie also claimed the Tea Party people will “dissipate into the sand.” So 22 Tea Partiers decided to talk to Neil in person…at his grand opening….was he ever surprised! Jaws Drop As Maui Tea Party Walks Into Abercrombie HQ Opening They had their pictures taken with good ole Neil and even gave him a bumper sticker. They also ate some of Neil’s food. LOL! (As an aside: Neil deserves the commie moniker – he was a BFF of Barack 0bama Sr. and hung out with Frank Marshall Davis, 0bama’s pervert communist mentor: Barack 0bama’s Surrogate Father)
More Creepy Youth Indoctrination. Remember the videos of the school kids singing 0bama’s praises? Now they can be 0bama Scholars Brilliant…….NOT!
Perfect Analogy of Government (In)Efficiency. Government Efficiency As Explained by the Changing of a Lightbulb Here’s a sneak peek: During his daily press conference with CNN, CBS, and MSNBC, President Obama is asked about the light bulb problem and he states that he is “deeply concerned” and vows to appoint a special task force to address comprehensive light bulb replacement reform. Ah yes…and so it goes!

GOD BLESS AMERICA…PASS THIS ON…REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!
I went to a rally today, and it had nothing to do with 0bamaCare (more on that later.) The state of Hawaii is actually thinking of raising it’s General Excise Tax (GET) by 1%. For you mainlanders, this is not a sales tax….it’s an additional 4% tax (4.5% on Oahu for our proposed rail system….another story) that taxes goods and services at every level, including food and medical care. We’ve had it since the 1930s. The big unions here want the tax increased so they can keep their cushy jobs and entitlements. HELLO….what planet are they from? Have they not seen what’s happening with the economy lately? So I went to the Capitol and waved signs with fellow anti-taxers and met with some of the lawmakers. I don’t know if it helped but we’ll find out soon enough. Texas is looking better and better all the time! Here’s more on the GET if you care to learn more: Hawaii’s GET – A Conundrum
And Now, The 800 Pound Gorilla. All the back room deals, and arm-twisting worked and the Marxist-in-Chief got his way with healthcare. Here’s how they voted: Final Vote Results-219 to 212 (Note the Democrats who voted against this bill – they deserve credit!) Also remember these names: Carney (PA), Driehaus (OH), Dahlkemper (PA), Kaptur (OH), Molohan (WV), Rahall (WV), Stupak (MI). These are all Dems who voted “no” last time and switched their votes to “yes,” allowing the bill to pass. They need to be targeted and defeated! Think the dust is settled on 0bamacare? No way, Jose! WE THE PEOPLE are just getting started. Quite a few of you have emailed me asking, “what’s next?” Here you go…
Timeline and Fact Checking: Want to know what would phase in with 0bamaCare and when? Here’s a timeline: Senate Healthcare Timeline And those Medicare benefits 0bama promised would stay? Not true: The Truth About 0bama’s Medicare Claim One more thing – it looks like staffers for House leaders may be exempt from the 0bamaCare mandate….Nice!!! Leadership Aides Exempt From Bill? UPDATE: Chuck Grassley is making a big deal out of this and trying to force the issue. Good for him! Should The Senate Force Obama Into Obamacare?
Thank Goodness The IRS Will Be Involved! I’ve been thinking that they don’t have enough power and control over our lives so I’m really glad they will be “The Enforcers” of 0bamaCare. They really needed more workers (over 16,000) and more funds ($10 billion). And they are so knowledgeable in all things related to healthcare, it’s wonderful that they will be the ones determining “minimal essential” coverage. Woo Hoo! IRS Gains Broader Powers Under Health Reform (Thanks, Rob, for the link. And for the following story.)
March 23 Is An Historic Day. On 3/23/1775 Patrick Henry gave his famous “Give me liberty or give me death” speech. Coincidence that it’s the same day 0bamaCare is signed into law? I think not: Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!” — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! Patrick Henry – March 23, 1775
Elections Have Consequences. Hey all you who voted for 0bama – did you know you “overwhelmingly voted for socialism”? Just ask Al Sharpton. Frankly, I agree with him. And if you protest that conclusion, then shame on you! The hopey-changey thing doesn’t work anymore – you should have learned more about your candidate before putting him in the White House because all the warning signs were there. So check out this LIST, copy it and share it with everyone you know. It’s the names of all the members of Congress who belong to the Progressive (aka socialist/communist/Marxist) Caucus: CPC Important to note….the CPC was founded by Bernie Sanders, a self-avowed socialist. And, until 1999 the Congressional Progressive Caucus worked in open partnership with Democratic Socialists of America. After the press reported on this link, the connections suddenly vanished from both organizations’ websites. TARGET THESE PEOPLE AND DEFEAT THEM!!!
Votes Have Consequences. Bart Stupak was supposed to receive “The Defender of Life” Award from the Susan B. Anthony list Wednesday night. No more. The group has denied him the award and title after his switch to a “yes” vote on 0bamaCare: Stupak Stripped of Award The National Right to Life group and Catholic bishops also condemned Stupak: Abortion Compromise Doesn’t Satisfy Critics So why is it that everyone but Stupak seems to realize 0bama’s executive order means nothing? Ah….Stupak knows, too. In fact, looks like he planned to vote “yes” all along: “I’d Vote Yes” Here’s the sweetheart deal he got in exchange for his vote: $726,409 for Airports
And Here’s What Stupak Did After His Vote…..He celebrated at a DC dive with other Dems! In fact, Anthony Weiner planted a big wet one on him to show his appreciation – disgusting! Stupak Closes DC Dive After Selling Out In House BTW, Bart, 0bama didn’t even sign that Executive Order he promised you. You’ve been punk’d! UPDATE: 0bama signed the worthless, non-binding executive order Wednesday. Feel better, Bart after the 0bamaMessiah had you squirming for a couple of days?
Truth And Consequences. Former House Speaker Tom Delay expressed how the passage of the bill was “sickening” and “you saw the Constitution burned by the Democrats.” He smacked Geraldo Rivera back to earth after gloating that DeLay was probably in “mourning.” (Note to self: the term “useful idiot” fits Geraldo perfectly!) And future Speaker of the House John Boehner gave a great speech before the Democrats marched off the cliff: Hell No!
Who Knew Healthcare Had Anything To Do With Student Loans? Knowing that they couldn’t pass the student aid package because they no longer have a supermajority in the Senate, the Dems tacked a huge government takeover of student loans onto the healthcare bill. Are we having fun yet? Do we not see how this administration will stop at nothing to increase the size of government and control as much of our lives as possible?
A High Speed Train, A Low Speed Arrival. Part of the stimulus money went to Florida to develop a high speed train between Orlando and Tampa. This was to be the centerpiece of 0bama’s plan to tout high speed rail travel around the country. It’s fast, alright…about 168 mph. But because it makes 5 stops it only takes about 30 minutes off the trip – a trip that takes 90 minutes to drive. Gee, I’m so glad they got that $1.25 billion of our money: Stimulus Plan For Rail Line Between Tampa And Orlando Shows System Of Weak Links
Can She Really Be That Stupid? Yes, I pick on Nancy Pelosi a lot. But she deserves it. In an interview with Diane Sawyer, she said “you want bipartisanship, but you cannot let the lack of bipartisanship stand in the way of making this change that is important to the American people.” Pelosi Defends Healthcare Tactics Maybe she needs to start reading the polls – her approval rating is at 11%. Of course, she’s still ahead of Harry Reid whose approval rating is now at 8%. Way to go, you’re both delusional!
But This Is One Smart Dog! He Refuses Treats From Obama – LOL!!

Maybe They’ll Come To Your Door. I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that according to the Constitution the only thing you need to fill out on your census form is how many people live in your home. Period. My friend Jackie asked me if this was really true, so I asked an attorney today…she said that’s all she was telling them, too! Be aware that someone might call you on the phone and show up at your house, just like what happened with Pamela Geller: Census Stalkers You sure would be in good company! (BTW, there are different forms going out across the country. The one we got here in our district in Hawaii merely asked how many people lived in the house and residents’ names. Go figure….)
Three Rising Stars This Week! First, look out, Bart Stupak. Dan Benishek is out to get your job. After Sunday night’s healthcare vote, his Facebook page added thousands of fans overnight. Dan has never held political office but believes in fiscal conservatism, energy independence, and strong national defense. He’s a physician and pro-life. As for healthcare, he believes the system needs fine-tuning but not the monstrous government takeover just passed by Congress. And there’s another person vying for Stupak’s seat: Linda Goldthorpe Linda is an attorney who would like to see the federal government keep it’s hands off state affairs, restrain itself to Constitutionally mandated issues, and cease taking personal property through taxation and excessive regulation.
Ilario Pantano is a Marine vet running for Congress in North Carolina. Talk about life experiences…..he’s an author, former Wall Street trader, and former Deputy Sheriff. While serving his country in combat in Fallujah, he killed two insurgents. Wrongly accused of murder, a military hearing dismissed all charges against him. Even still, Jihadists sent his family death threats so he resigned from the Marine Corps. His issues are promoting jobs and the economy, protecting the homeland, and preserving conservative values.
Current Rising Star Tally: Katherine Jenerette (Congress-SC), Allen West (Congress-FL), Les Phillip (Congress-AL), Steve Stivers (Congress-OH), Tim Burns (Congress-PA), Christine O’Donnell (Senate-DE). Stay tuned for more!

ALOHA, ALL! Will they do it? will the Democrats march off the cliff to support 0bamaCare? It truly is a suicide mission, similar to those who shout “Allahu Akbar” before killing themselves (and others.) ”Allahu Akbar” translates to “Allah is the Greatest” so it sure seems like the Dems battle cry is “0bama Akbar,” doesn’t it? All indications are that this week is when the decision will be made. Don’t let up….don’t give in….CALL THESE PEOPLE: Swing Votes on 0bamaCare My friend Greg wrote an excellent overview of what 0bamaCare would mean if it passes. Check it out HERE and also read his Facebook group, Soldiers Without Boots. The link is in the blogroll sidebar. Here’s another short (not-so-sweet) overview: 5 Facts About 0bamaCare For updated information on where the votes are, check out Code Red. Bottom line: we have to do everything we can to stop this. It’s not about healthcare, it’s about control! To wit: Democrats Move Toward Grouping Student Aid with Health Reform Why else would student aid be in a so-called healthcare bill???? Here’s more from Dick Morris: 0bama’s Plan To Cripple Education Reforms
BREAKING! New England Journal of Medicine survey just out on 3/16/10 says one-third of doctors would leave the profession if 0bamaCare passes. People, this is HUGE! Doctors Could Leave If HC Passes (I’m guessing these doctors weren’t in 0bama’s “Lab Coat Brigade.”)

More Light Reading – The Reconciliation Bill Was released Monday and it’s 2309 pages long. What is this bill? Here’s how The Heritage Foundation describes it: ”The House Budget Committee will begin markup on the new reconciliation bill even though actual legislative text does not exist for it yet. The Democrats plan to pass a shell of a bill through the appropriate committees so that the Rules Committee can then substitute the bill that is being drafted completely behind closed doors by the White House and Senate and Democrat leaders.” Here’s more: 0bamaCare At Any Cost
Trickery As Tactic. Remember how Pelosi said a few weeks ago that “We will go through the gate. If the gate is closed, we will go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we will vault in. If that doesn’t work, we will parachute in. But we are going to get health care reform passed.” Enter the “Slaughter Solution” There’s also the Deem and Pass (aka “Demon Pass”) that Nancy Nitwit is promoting now. She says she wants to “kick through this door” so that more reform will follow. As I’ve said before, she has really lost it…she is mentally unstable! And if this healthcare bill is such a good thing for America, why do they have to use all these underhanded tactics to get it passed? Just saying.
Hypocrisy As Tactic. Eric Massa is a clown. It turns out he has a long history of “tickle fights” with male staffers. It also turns out that Madame Speaker knew about such shenanigans last October, yet did nothing about it: Pelosi Knew Barney Franks’ chief of staff knew also (Barney was likely cool with it.) This is a BIG story that has gotten NO coverage. If Pelosi knew, she is not only hypocritical (remember her stinging indictment of Mark Foley?) but complicit. Stay tuned.

Good Stuff. House Republicans approved a ban on earmarks Thursday: Pence Praises Unilateral Ban The 9th Circuit Court ruled that keeping the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance is constitutional: Court Upholds “Under God” In Pledge Even more miraculous….this is the same goofy court in California that is deemed the most leftist in the country! How cool is this – Virginia Passes Law Against Federally Mandated Health Insurance Even better, it looks like at least 36 states are considering similar legislation. Check out all these combat veterans running for Congress: Combat Veterans For Congress – Electing Fiscal Conservatives Interesting…not one is running as a Democrat. Go figure. Virginia Thomas, wife of SCOTUS Justice Clarence Thomas, has started a new organization called Liberty Central. I met her recently at an event in Dallas – a lovely lady!
This Week’s Rising Star Is….TWO people! It’s great that so many incredible people are running – makes it difficult to pick just one! First, Tim Burns. Tim is a businessman who never thought he would run for office. He states he is NOT a politician…he’s a regular guy running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 12th district. His motivation is to ensure a bright future for his two sons and he’s especially concerned about the financial situation of our country. He says, “Please join me in this fight to take back our country and ensure all our children inherit a strong America, not a bankrupt one.” A strong fiscal conservative, Tim is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, supports strong national defense, and energy independence. Sounds like he truly is a real, grounded person and not a political hack!
This week’s second Rising Star is Christine O’Donnell Christine is running for the Senate seat formerly held by “Say it Ain’t So” Joe Biden. She is adamant about bringing the “national anti-Washington insurgency” to Delaware. ”I’m running because our nation’s founding principles of individual liberty and free enterprise are no longer viewed by our leaders as indispensable.” You may have seen Christine on TV as a political commentator where she has duked it out with the likes of Chris Matthews and Bill Maher. One of six children, she says she was “raised by parents who taught me that while life can be hard, hard work will also make life better. WOW – the true Anti-Biden!

Did You Hear That???? Howard Stern Calls 0bama A Communist
Texas Schoolbook Broo-Ha-Ha. Frankly, I’m glad that someone finally decided to have textbooks lean more right for a change. Liberals are going nuts over this, knowing that what happens with Texas textbooks translates to textbook contents throughout the country. IMHO, for too long textbooks have been “Wikipedia-ized”….written in ways that either change history or eliminate certain aspects that highlight conservative principles. (Note: this is the liberal press at work – remember how the Tea Parties got practically zero coverage in Time and Newsweek?) So if the pendulum swings more right this time, so be it. Frankly, it’s better than the alternative: Texas Takes A Stand For Accuracy In School Textbooks

MUST SEE! We are all tired of fighting the craziness in Washington. Remember the simpler times when we worked hard, achieved success through trying our best and didn’t need to spend all our free time fighting statism in our country? Let’s go back to that time with something that will truly inspire you: Red Skelton Pledge of Allegiance
Final Thought: “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.” –Ronald Reagan on health care in 1961
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!
P.S. Happy St. Patrick’s Day – sure wish he could come back and drive the snakes out of Washington!
P.P.S. I know I may have overloaded you with healthcare stuff this week, but this is it, folks. Speak up now or be sorry!
And we thought it was over….why wouldn’t we? The 0bama administration was rocked to the core when Scott Brown got elected to the Senate a few weeks ago. The people screamed the message, “we’ve had enough” of the nonsense and the spending – most of all enough of the back room deals and opaque process surrounding healthcare reform. In fact, we wanted healthcare reform GONE! So what does 0bama do? He decides to open up a new dialogue on healthcare. He wants to “come back and have a large meeting, Republicans and Democrats…” This large meeting is supposed to happen on February 25 and will take 6 hours…in front of cameras. Is this really a bi-partisan outreach or more smoke and mirrors from 0bama? Sorry if I’m a bit cynical. The Heritage Foundation is, too: A Six-Hour Infomercial Can’t Save Obamacare But it looks like the Republican leadership is on to 0bama’s games. They are refusing to meet unless the entire bill in its current form is scrapped and they start over: Top House Republicans Throw Cold Water on Health Summit
I Wonder What The Statistics Are in The UK? It didn’t take the Dems long to turn John Murtha’s death into a plug for 0bamacare. Now they are ready to assault doctors and scream that Murtha’s death is malpractice….who needs tort reform?

Speaking of Murtha. I don’t care what he did early in his life, his later years were nothing but nonsensical, obstructionist, posturing. From a pork-garnering king. Lest we forget: An Insult To Our Democracy
Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Two Feet of Snow….will stop the global warming idiocy! On Monday, 0bama announced that he wants to form a new government agency to study global warming (aka climate change.) So much for 0bama’s commitment to science, another of his campaign promises. I guess if the science doesn’t support his agenda then it’s not valid. This new agency will have several regional offices throughout the country, thus wasting even more of your tax dollars. Is it 2012 yet? 0bama Proposes New Global Warming Agency BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: announcement for new global warming agency had to be postponed because of second DC snow storm: Blizzard Rearranges Climate Change Announcement Who says God doesn’t have a sense of humor?
Let It Snow, Let It Snow. The Dems hoped to pass the second stimulus today since the first one worked so well. But that darn global-warming-caused snowstorm interfered: Snow Slows 0bama’s Second Stimlus Hey Senators, here’s an idea: stay home indefinitely. We don’t need your stinkin’ stimulus.

Those Crazy Tea Party People! In case you didn’t hear Sarah Palin’s address at the convention last weekend, you can view it here: Sarah Palin Keynote Address At Tea Party Convention Wow – those people are nuts!! *Smirk*
Talk To The Hand. This is great….liberals were apoplectic because Sarah Palin had written notes on her hand and actually looked at them during the Q&A after her Tea Party convention speech. Geez – why can’t she just use several teleprompters like 0bama? This is the best part: Palin Writes “Hi Mom” On Her Hand Too bad she’s really dumb and doesn’t have a sense of humor *Bigger Smirk*
Hawaii Is Getting National Attention!!! The campaign of Charles Djou is gaining momentum. He even made an appearance on Fox’s late night talk show, “Red Eye” the other night. Charles Djou On Red Eye GO CHARLES!
Gee – Why Don’t They Spell It Correctly? This story got no coverage in the lame-stream media – only Fox News has reported on it. But it makes one wonder: what are in those secret, not-to-be-released school records? Could it be that 0bama can’t spell “potatoes”? So much for the brilliant image of the 0bamessiah. 0bama Calls Navy Corpsman “Corpse-Man” And it happened three times. While reading a teleprompter. Let’s blame the spelling – it should be C-O-R-E anyhow, right? But don’t be a conservative woman who writes on your hand…that would be outrageous! Which leads us to….
Little Barry Goes Back To School. A statue of Barack 0bama that was erected in an Indonesian park is being removed. It’s called “Little Barry” because that’s what he was called when he went to school there as a child. Indonesians were outraged and demanded the statue be removed via a Facebook group, so “Little Barry” will be relocated to somewhere near his old school: Indonesia To Remove Statue From Public Park BTW, the statue shows 0bama with a butterfly peacefully resting on his hand. How adorable is that????

He Would Have Turned 99 on February 6: Reagan’s Legacy President Reagan, we will have a wonderful present for you on your 100th – by then we will have broken the leftist liberal stranglehold on your beloved country!
The Small Business Lending Fund = TARP For Small Businesses. Have you noticed how this administration tries to put different names on new initiatives that are exactly the same as programs from the past that were not popular? Do they really think we’re that dumb? Even more, do they really think? 0bama’s Permanent Slush Fund
Final Thought: ”Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.” Ronald Reagan
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!
Do you hear that whining sound? Every time Barack 0bama opens his mouth he cries like a baby. Those mean Republicans….they keep saying no!! That awful George Bush….he left a mess!! Those hateful Fox News people….they don’t get tingles down their legs!! Enough, already – grow up. The American people don’t want to hear a whining hypocrite every time 0bama goes on the airwaves. This has got to be very old for TOTUS, too (that’s Teleprompter of the United States.) But the kvetching is even more troubling when it’s coupled with duplicity, and that’s what we’re seeing with 0bama now. Last week, I wrote about how David Plouffe is back advising 0bama, and it shows big-time. Since the State of the Union speech, 0bama is on the offensive against the Republicans. Forget the supposed outreach to the GOP when meeting with them in Baltimore last week – smoke and mirrors. Check out 0bama’s response when questioned by Rep Jeb Hensarling about his new budget: Spending America Into Oblivion In that same article, note how 0bama’s budget will double the national debt to $11.5 trillion in 2012 and triple it to $18.6 trillion by 2020. 0bama will run up more debt over 8 years than all other Presidents – combined! Yet he has the nerve to talk about a so-called spending freeze. Here’s a great chart that shows why this “freeze” is more nonsense from 0bama: 0bama’s Spending Freeze We have a person sitting in the Oval Office who has the nerve to lecture lawmakers by saying “that’s how budgets are done” when he has no clue what he’s doing (remember….his only real job experience outside of government and community organizing has been working for Baskin Robbins during high school). Angry yet? it’s enough to make you scream! One more on the topic of whining: Beyond The Whining, What Did The President Propose in SOTU Speech?
It’s Nancy The Nitwit Ninja! Looks like Nancy Pelosi wants to be a paratrooper: “We go through the gate. If the gate’s closed, we’ll go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get health care reform passed for the American people for their own personal health and economic security and for the important role that it will play in reducing the deficit.” Delusional, much? And look what 0bama admitted the other day…if 0bamacare had passed you would NOT have been able to keep your health plan or doctor: So Maybe You Can’t Keep Your Current Coverage These people are outright liars and unworthy of our trust.
Here’s Some Fat To Chew On. There are 400,000 workers who prepare and serve lunch to American school children. What???? It’s true. And guess what union they belong to (hint: it starts with an “S,” has an “EIU” in it and its boss has been the most frequent visitor to the White House since 0bama took office.) So Michelle 0bama decides to make childhood obesity her crusade…which happens to promote better nutrition in schools…which happens to make funding the Child Nutrition Act sound like a good idea…which gives more money to food service workers in schools. Got it? Great article by Michelle Malkin: Union Fat Cats Behind First Lady’s Anti-Obesity Campaign
More Fat. 0bama’s $3.8 trillion budget for 2011 is absurd. It throws money at failed programs, raises taxes and spends, spends, spends! Do you get the feeling we are living in a bizarro world where nothing makes sense? Heritage Foundation – The 0bama Budget
And This Is Obese. The debt ceiling was raised yet again, to $14.3 trillion!!! Are you getting to the point where these numbers sound like monopoly money? Here’s who voted for this: Senate Roll Call Votes BTW, every Democrat voted for this.
Alas!!! 0bama Girl is No Longer Smitten. She made a name for herself on Youtube singing about how she had a crush on 0bama. Looks like the bloom has gone off the rose: 0bama Girl Kicks 0bama To The Curb But never fear…Zo has the perfect person to take her place: Chris Matthews Is The New 0bama Girl
Scott Brown Is Finally Being Seated. The Dems were trying to hold this off as long as possible. February 11 was supposed to be the date Brown is sworn in, but guess what? He challenged this and will now be seated a week early – February 4. Thank goodness – in the meantime Kirk has still been voting (even though the people spoke loudly and clearly) and some far-reaching legislation has passed as a result: Why Is Kirk Still Voting?
More Good News. Looks like by the time November comes around, Scott Brown won’t be alone as a new, forward-thinking legislator – Time recently had an article that listed “Ten More Scott Browns.” I’d like to add an eleventh, and that’s Charles Djou of Hawaii. He’s a conservative Republican running in a special Congressional election to replace Neil Abercrombie (Commie Neil has decided to run for Governor – joy.) Djou offers sanity in a state that truly needs some! Yes, it’s paradise but even this paradise isn’t perfect. Does he have a chance? The Dems are already attacking him, so that would be a resounding YES! DCCC Hitting Djou Early Djou is getting lots of national attention and was the topic of a recent National Review Online article. And here’s the best part…Djou is running in the Congressional district that includes 0bama’s childhood stomping grounds! So keep your eyes on this one, folks, and GO CHARLES!!!
Speaking of Paradise….The GOP was here last week for its Winter meeting. They got some heat (no pun intended) for traveling to this far-off, exotic land. Guess what, short-sighted critics? Hawaii is part of the United States! Frankly, I want to thank the GOP for bringing its delegates and dollars to our state. I understand Michael Steele took the brunt of the criticism, so mahalo, Bro! Fun In The Sun For The GOP In Hawaii I attended a one day seminar that was outstanding, and heard Steele speak and met many other talented GOPers.
And while the Dems were criticizing the GOP for going to Hawaii, guess what they did? They had a lovefest with lobbyists in swanky South Beach. Dem Senators Retreat To South Beach With 108 Lobbyists Lobbyists? I guess they didn’t get the 0bama memo. Come to think of it, 0bama didn’t get that “no lobbyists” memo, either: K Street Insiders Get Private Briefings
Want To Celebrate After The November Elections? How about a cruise? My friend Janet has put together The Liberty Cruise: A cruise of the people, by the people and for the people! Sailing November 14-21, it departs from Ft. Lauderdale and stops at great locations like St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Nassau. Some of the speakers include Steven Crowder, SE Cupp, Erick Erickson, Mary Katerine Hamm and more – wow! Here’s the website: The Liberty Cruise Sure sounds like a bon voyage
I Wonder Why This Story Got No Attention???? Canadian Premier Comes to U.S. For Healthcare
4, 3, 2, 1. More people are now watching Nancy Grace than Keith Olbermann. He lost 44% of his audience since 0bama took office. Who says there’s no such thing as karma? Countdown Begins For End of Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown?”
