I'm Running Out of Words

I don't know how to describe Obama's latest attacks on the American people without sounding like a genuine headcase, the same kind of right-wing extremist detailed by leftist pundits in the media. The most I can do is go through the facts and let them speak for themselves.

Rahm Emanuel, Obama's chief of staff, has said that a serious crisis should never go to waste. The White House predicts nearly 100,000 could die of swine flu.

Enemies of the United States have nothing to fear should they be captured by American troops.

The real enemies are within, as the White House deems protesters low level terrorists. Special interrogation squads will be formed, to be controlled by the White House.

The stage is being set for the gov't to violently suppress civil disobedience and unrest. Obama is desperately trying to keep us in perpetually crisis mode so the thoughtless masses will scream for him to do something. He will be only too happy to oblige.

You Spin Me 'Round Baby, Baby, Right 'Round

Yet another load of crap from the media, a little close to home this time around.,0,685807.story

The bias is in the reporterette's failure (intentional or otherwise) to get the real reason behind the protesters showing up. Those of us waving American flags and holding signs decrying Obamacare didn't show up thinking we were going to some open town hall meeting hosted by the genteel Senator Lincoln. We were protesting the fact that Lincoln has had no town hall meetings in northwest Arkansas this month, most likely because we comprise the most conservative corner of the state. (Can anyone tell me if she has had any open town hall meetings since the Senate has been on break?)

We would love to be "engaged and involved" with the political discussion in a "constructive way," Ms. Lincoln. You just won't stand still long enough for us to talk to you. If you believed in the health care/health insurance/insert-focus-group-tested-term-here swill you are peddling, I would think you would want to explain the errors of our ways to us. Your failure to engage speaks volumes.

Hope and change.

I Came, I Saw, I Got Flipped Off

You know, for being the Big Tent Party, some of these democrat types aren't very open to opposing viewpoints.

I had gathered together with some like-minded souls outside of a fund raiser for Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln this afternoon in Bella Vista. As conservatives, we were none too pleased that the esteemed congresswoman saw fit to not hold any town hall meetings this month on the subject of health care.

So, we assembled ourselves along the road to the area where the fund raiser was being held, smiling and waving at people driving in to attend while we held signs expressing our displeasure. There was no profanity on the signs, some had slogans like "Say No to Obamacare" while others expressed our irritation at being blown off by Lincoln. (My own sign (borrowed from a friend) did cause me momentary consternation. I was worried there might be a swastika subliminally embedded in the laminate which would only appear when shown on MSNBC.)

Most people driving past would smile and wave back. Some just drove on, staring straight ahead while others shook their heads as the rolled past us. A lady in the passenger's side of an SUV took exception to us, rolled down her window, and yelled, "F*** all you people!" I told my companion that I wasn't feeling the love. A little before that, an older gentleman and his wife (in yet another SUV - where is the environmental concern?) drove by and, just after he passed me, flipped me the bird. Not to be outdone, I blew him a kiss.

One of the more picturesque moments came when a woman stumped by and stated, "I don't agree with you people, so I'm not talking to you." Her child followed close behind while her husband, looking sheepish, brought up the rear.

As an interesting side note, there were several people who attended the fund raiser at $5 a head and paid us absolutely no heed when we tried to tell them there was parking closer to the event. The vehicles of the protesters took up both sides of the road for some distance to the police barricade, so there appeared to be less parking than there really was. They trudged past us, determined not to be waylaid by our sneaky conservative ways. Shame on us for trying to save them a walk.

Speaking of people who actually attended the event, scuttlebutt was that there were at least as many protesters as attendees, probably more. I have on good authority that 15 of those who paid to line Lincoln's re-election coffers were on our side, so I think we won the numbers game.

At any rate, Lincoln got into and out of the event without being seen by any of us lining the street. She may have been whizzed out of this shindig by a car taking a side road around the protesters but how she got in is something of a mystery. She was either lying down in the back of a vehicle, was brought in the back via golf cart, or hiked down a goat trail. Whatever the means of transportation, it was obvious she really didn't want to hear anything about opposing viewpoints.

You just keep on blowing us off Ms. Lincoln. It will make us work all the harder to get you out of office when your term is up.

Hope and change, baby.

A National Shame

Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, is on the verge of appointing a special prosecutor to look into alleged torture sessions by the CIA. All you left-wingers can stand up and cheer because America is going to regain its status among the terrorist countries by curtailing such "immoral" techniques.

What no one in Obama's cabal is talking about is the fact that our pres has retained the right of rendition, which allows the CIA to abduct and torture suspected terrorists on foreign soil.

The double standard is disgusting to behold. The news articles portray Holder as a thoughtful, sensitive man who is reluctant to even start such proceedings. In reality, he is just one more liberal attack dog, turning a blind eye to any "torture" techniques sanctioned by his boss while trying to destroy those who applied similar methods of interrogation in the Bush administration.

I wonder if the gov't agents currently carrying out Obama's renditions stop to think when they might be prosecuted for the "crimes" they are committing? Obama has set a new precedent - members of a previous administration can be prosecuted by a future administration over anything which might be considered "controversial."

Maybe Obama can be investigated someday for alleged illegal campaign contributions or working with ACORN to falsify votes in the last election. But I'm not holding my breath.

Hope and change, baby.

Divided We Will Fall

We live in interesting times. Barack Hussein Obama, the leader of the free world, is drawing up strategies targeting anyone who dares raise a voice against his socialist and totalitarian policies.

Obama hasn't called for any kind of compromise or shared vision. He tells his critics to "get out of the way." As usual, he never goes into specifics, so you don't know exactly who he is talking about. Maybe he is trying to tie into the mantra that the gop is somehow responsible for vocal protests at health care town halls. The gop, on a national level, is completely incapable of anything so "radical." Such a move would surely alienate some voters somewhere and they couldn't have that.

White House officials told their pet democrat congressmen that they will "push back twice as hard" if anyone dares run ads against elected officials who support the health care plan. The only ads which would be bought to contest this gov't health care take over would be run by independent groups, making common American citizens Obama's political enemies. And let's not forget Obama's efforts to form a truth squad to report anyone who doesn't buy into his health care lies.

Obama now has the tactic of sending goon squads to health care town hall meetings. Kenneth Gladney was attacked by union thugs outside the town hall meeting held by Russ Carnahan, D-MO, on Aug. 6. He seemed to offend the union members by virtue of being a black man handing out Don't Tread on Me flags. There are other stories of union thugs being let into meeting halls in advance of the public and closing down the meetings when the people ask too many questions of their "betters." At a town hall meeting in Arkansas, union thugs were right up in people's faces with video cameras anytime someone asked a question. They wanted to be sure you couldn't speak out without intimidation and the fear of retaliation.

These creeps aren't going to take my country away while I remain silent. There's a town hall meeting in my neck of the woods in about a week and I plan to be there. I think I'll bring a video camera of my own.

What, You Want a Right to Privacy and Be Able to Choose Your Own Doctor, Too?

Obama is on a roll.

Intentionally or not, gov't lawyers put language in the Cash for Clunkers user agreement for car dealers denying them any privacy on the computer used to log into the gov't's system. Then, we have an announcement on the White House web site asking people to report anyone spreading "disinformation" about Obama's health care plan.

Now, we have this.

I suggest two things: burn up the phone lines to your congress critters and learn how to use Truecrypt.

Hope and change.

I'm Not Paranoid . . .

I know they're after me.

So, after preaching unification and solidarity during the campaign, this is how Obama is going to bring us together? I can feel the love.

Rush Limbaugh is being proved right once again. He always said that liberals can't argue the facts. That is certainly on display here, as Daddy O seeks to intimidate his opposition into silence.

Speaking of Chicago thug tactics, check this out: I need to credit Issa for having some testosterone. Previously, I had thought that Coburn was the only man among 'em in the congressional gop.

At any rate, remind me to change my e-mail address every day or two to avoid federal monitoring.

Hope and change, baby!

Obama's Kenyan birth certificate appears

A copy of what is purported to be Obama's Kenyan birth certificate is at If it is real, this is huge.

For now, I'm more inclined to believe a Kenyan birth certificate I can see than a Hawaiian long-form birth certificate that I can't. The short form that has been posted on the web is available to foreign born nationals, rendering it meaningless for establishing where Obama was born.

Let's see how this unfolds.

Birth Certificate Controversy Gains Ground

It's getting better all the time.

Well, parts of it. National Review is finally starting to pay some attention to the birth certificate controversy. I'm not so quick to believe that Obama was born in Hawaii but this article points up a lot of the concerns we crazy conservatives have about our current president. The article is lengthy but well-written and well worth the read.

Hope and change, baby!

What About the Patriot Act?

Wasn't the Patriot Act supposed to be the ultimate invasion of privacy? Somebody tell Obama to back off on the computer monitoring thing or he will show up Bush as supposedly being the worst violator of privacy/civil rights in American history.

Here's what a car dealer has to agree to when he or she tries to take part in the Cash for Clunkers program.

Actually, I didn't believe this until I saw it myself. A friend of mine sent me photos of the TV screen when Beck had a segment on this a night or two ago. I thought there must have been some kind of phishing site set up, that the gov't would not honestly ask anyone to agree to such a complete invasion of their privacy. I grossly underestimated Obama's "audacity." There doesn't seem to be a lot of "hope" involved here, however.
