Rush Limbaugh apparently isn't good enough for the NFL

Rush Limbaugh not good enough for the NFL? No, it's the other way around. The NFL is not good enough for Rush Limbaugh.

In case you've had your head buried in the sand the last couple of weeks, you may have noticed the flap over Rush Limbaugh's participation in a group of investors looking to buy the St. Louis Rams NFL football team.

This "little distraction" even went so far as the floor of the US House of Representatives, when congresscritter, Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) stuck her 2 cents into the controversy and "urged the NFL to not let Rush Limbaugh buy the St. Louis Rams." Don't they have other, more serious things to concern themselves with in Congress, than who might or might not become an owner in the NFL?

Then there is the lamentable comments by Commissioner Roger Goodell, who said on Tuesday, "we're all held to a high standard here, and I think divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about."

High standard? This from an organization filled with ex-cons, gang members, and of course, those addicted to steroids? Give me a break. Rush, if he hadn't been dropped from the group of investors, looking to buy the Rams, would have elevated the status of the the NFL, to something more respectable.

But we should not really be surprised by this latest attack on the conservative icon. From the office of President Barrack Hussein Obama, down to the lowliest, leftwing bloggers, Rush has always been attacked by those who would curtail the 1st amendment, whenever it doesn't suit their needs.

From the latest White House attacks on Fox News, it's obvious that there's a massive left wing conspiracy going on to silence all oppositional commentary. I think a lot of this stems from the recent revelation about ACORN, when it was shown that some of their members were advocating child prostitution.

I know there are some people who are calling for a boycott of the NFL because of the Michael Vick controversy. That's fine. I don't have a problem with that, and in fact, I think a boycott because of the sad way Rush Limbaugh has been treated is in order as well.

Whether you agree with Rush or not, does not matter. If this can happen to him, it can happen to ANYONE. Well, anyone who might be a Conservative that is.

The Open Carry Movement

For those of you who are not aware, Open Carry is sweeping across the country. At least, in those states where it is legal to do so. Interestingly enough, it's not legal in Texas!! Apparently this goes back to the post Civil War days (That's the War Between the States for you Southern sympathizers. ) I suppose this was to cut down on violence against the former slaves, as well as the occupation forces sent down by the Northern invaders.

I understand that now, Texas is looking into making Open carry legal again. Even for those in Texas with a CCW permit, this would be a welcome change, since as of now, if you have a CCW permit, and your pistol should become visible, you could face charges and lose your permit.

For myself, I live in Michigan, which is an Open Carry state. I have, and do carry openly, when I consider it practicable. However, I also know there are times and places when OC (the current shorthand for Open Carry) is either not prudent, or not practicable. (I like using that word, picked it from the movie "Gods and Generals" )

What I will add here is this, if you choose to OC, make sure you know the laws for your state, and local area, if applicable. It would be bad to end up in jail, just because you missed some rule about OC in your state. Check out OpenCarry dot Org for more details.

If THIS guy is really a member of the ACLU.....

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. Then again, maybe I should. A certain self-proclaimed Nazi, Phil Bredeson, says he works for the ACLU. He even has a blog on blogger. (click the title of this article to see it, if you really want to.) And in this blog, short as it is, he maintains that Adolf Hitler is his hero, that Gays and Jews are out to take over the world, and that he can't stand contrary viewpoints. Your basic fringe claims of "I like free speech, as it applies to me, but you don't get any" rhetoric.

He even posted a reply to one of my posts, regarding the ACLU. His reply, "F**k you, gun shooter." I didn't delete his reply, maybe I should. After all, this is my blog, not his, so I don't have to put up with his bullshit.

Frankly, even though I disagree with the ACLU, I've always held a certain level of respect for them. However, if this guy really does work for the ACLU, I may have to re-think that opinion of mine.

Follow up to Tennessee gun laws

It's come to my attention that some people think I'm critical of the new law in Tennessee that allows CCW holders to go into establishments that serve alcohol with their guns.

On the contrary, I think it's a GREAT change in their handgun permit law. People who take the time, trouble, and spend the money to get a permit so they can legally defend themselves from the bad guys (Who, by the way will NEVER obey a law that says they can't carry a gun) should be considered trustworthy enough to let them take their gun, ANYWHERE they are legally allowed to be.

And for those who think there are too many guns on the street, get the bad guys to quit packing, and I will too....nah, I lied.

I think it's silly to give someone a permit/license that says the can carry a gun to defend themselves, then turn around and say, "Wait!! You can defend yourself here, but not here. It's ok to carry your gun in this store, but not that one."

It kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think?

And no, I don't have anything better to do in Michigan right now.

Tennesseans Not trustworthy with guns in bars??

I sent an email to Nashville's channel 4, in regard to the story of Randy Rayburn trying to stop a new law going into effect that would allow those with a handgun permit (what ever it's called in your state, Concealed Pistol License in mine) to be able to protect themselves in establishments that serve alcohol. Below is the email I sent.

I've been reading, with great interest, your story on the attempt to stop the new law in Tennessee that would allow handgun carry permit holders to take their weapons into establishments where alcohol is served. I find it funny, as there are several states where this is already legal.

In my state of Michigan, I can take my pistol into any establishment that serves alcohol as long as they make less than 50% of their income from the sale of alcohol. Basically, restaurants. If I travel an hour or so south west, into Indiana, I can walk into a bar with my pistol there.

In Virginia, I can carry in those same places, but I would have to uncover and therefore, open carry my pistol. I'm told, I could even drink in the state of Washington. Not that I would. Drinking while carrying a firearm is a bad idea. In my opinion.

But I have to wonder, is there something wrong with Tennesseans that make them less trustworthy? Is that why Mr. Rayburn brought his suit and attempted to stop a law that's already in effect in more than a few other states?

Maybe this is the question that should be asked of him.

by Jeffrey R. Snyder

OUR SOCIETY has reached a pinnacle of self-expression and respect for individuality rare or unmatched in history. Our entire popular culture -- from fashion magazines to the cinema -- positively screams the matchless worth of the individual, and glories in eccentricity, nonconformity,independent judgment, and self-determination. This enthusiasm is reflected in the prevalent notion that helping someone entails increasing that person's "self-esteem"; that if a person properly values himself, he will naturally be a happy, productive, and, in some inexplicable fashion, responsible
member of society.

And yet, while people are encouraged to revel in their individuality and incalculable self-worth, the media and the law enforcement establishment continually advise us that, when confronted with the threat of lethal violence, we should not resist, but simply give the attacker what he wants. If the crime under consideration is rape, there is some notable waffling on this point, and the discussion quickly moves to how the woman can change her behavior to minimize the risk of rape, and the various ridiculous, non-lethal weapons she may acceptably carry, such as whistles, keys, mace or, that weapon which really sends shivers down a rapist's spine, the portable cellular phone......(To read the rest, click on the title of this post, or click here.)

I wish I could take credit for this one. It certainly voices just about all my thoughts on self-defense, civil rights, and the proper role of government.

Proof that Sonia Sotomayor is a Racist!

From the American Bar Association's own website, we get the following:
In addition to her work on the bench, Judge Sotomayor is an adjunct professor at New York University School of Law and a lecturer-in-law at Columbia Law School. She is a member of the American Bar Association, the New York Women’s Bar Association, the Puerto Rican Bar Association, the Hispanic National Bar Association, the Association of Judges of Hispanic Heritage, and the National Council of La Raza. She has received many honors including, most recently, an award from the National Association of Women Lawyers.
This, in addition to her racist remark in 2001,
I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life.

I'd say her belonging to an organization known as "The Race" (La Raza), should label her as racist. After all, if I or any other white person belonged to an all white org known as "The Race," we all know that we would be labeled as racist, and therefore, unsuitable to be seated on the Supreme Court of the USA.

Kentucky Church has Open Carry Celebration

This June 27th (2009), the New Bethel Church in Louisville, Kentucky is having an "Open Carry Celebration." It's not part of any fear mongering, as the Daily Kos (throw up here) would have you believe. It's a simple act of support for the 2nd Amendment, and an active exercise of our rights, as American Citizens. It's sort of a pre 4th of July thing.

From the NRA: Gun Owner Blacklist Bill Introduced in U.S. House

On April 29, U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, who calls himself "a strong supporter of the war against international terrorism, both at home and abroad," introduced H.R. 2159, calling it the "Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009."

Given the bill's title, one might think that it's intended to affect terrorists. However, King and the bill's co-sponsors—Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), Mike Castle (R-Del.), Jim Moran (D-Va.), Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), Mark Kirk (D-Ill.), and Chris Smith (R-N.J.)—are extreme gun control supporters. Rather than being aimed at terrorists, H.R. 2159 is intended to give the executive branch arbitrary, unaccountable power to stop loyal Americans from acquiring firearms.

Ahmadinejad Can Speak on a US Campus, But Netanyahu Cannot

Ahmadinejad Can Speak on a US Campus, But Netanyahu Cannot

By Edward Olshaker

Imagine it's 1940, and picture Adolf Hitler speaking at a US university, receiving a polite reception, while Winston Churchill is barred from speaking because his safety cannot be guaranteed.

It's unthinkable, yet the very same pro-fascist dynamic is a reality in 21st Century America.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu comes to America knowing he is a second-class citizen who is denied the free-speech rights enjoyed even by prominent jihadists, having been violently prevented from speaking on campuses in the US and Canada in recent years.

Protestors at Berkeley, the campus once synonymous with the term "free speech," forced the cancellation of Netanyahu's speech there, as well as two subsequent speeches, in November 2000. The Jewish Bulletin of Northern California reported:

Hundreds of protesters shouting "Support the Palestinians, choose a side" and "No free speech for war criminals" blocked the gate leading to the Berkeley Community Theatre Tuesday evening, forcing the cancellation of a scheduled speech by former Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Additional talks by Netanyahu that were scheduled Wednesday and Thursday in San Mateo and San Rafael were subsequently cancelled.

Waving banners reading "Zionism=Nazism" and "End U.S. aid to Israel," the crowd was estimated at more than 500 by the Berkeley Police Department and at 200 to 250 by observers...

Considering the current financial state that California is in, can't we just kick the whole state loose? After all, the state is both financially and morally bankrupt. I think it's time we let the People's Republic of California become their own country. We can make Puerto Rico the new 50th state. I think they're at least not so financially bankrupt as the PRCA is.

The ACLU seems to be ignoring the 2nd Amendment

The Second Amendment provides: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Given the reference to "a well regulated Militia" and "the security of a free State," the ACLU has long taken the position that the Second Amendment protects a collective right rather than an individual right. For seven decades, the Supreme Court's 1939 decision in United States v. Miller was widely understood to have endorsed that view.

The Supreme Court has now ruled otherwise. In striking down Washington D.C.'s handgun ban by a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court's 2008 decision in D.C. v. Heller held for the first time that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to keep and bear arms, whether or not associated with a state militia.

The ACLU disagrees with the Supreme Court's conclusion about the nature of the right protected by the Second Amendment. We do not, however, take a position on gun control itself. In our view, neither the possession of guns nor the regulation of guns raises a civil liberties issue.

(To read the whole article, click on the title of this article.)

It seems that despite D.C. v. Heller, the ACLU still has their own world view of rights, and in their minds, the right to keep and bear arms is a collective right, not an individual right. They even like to misrepresent US v. Miller, just like the gun control groups do.

In actuality, US v. Miller simply said that a sawed off shotgun was NOT a militia weapon, and not subject to protection of the 2nd Amendment. But this shouldn't really surprise any of us. The ACLU is practically run by anti-gun types. So I expect this attitude to exist even if SCOTUS comes out and says the 2nd Amendment is an absolute individual right (Yeah, I know, don't hold your breath on this either.).

Still, it's nice to know who your friends, and who your enemies are. I think we all know what category the ACLU fits in.

Kicked out for her Religion!!!

When conscience is criminalized

Joe Coffman - Guest Columnist - 5/14/2009 1:15:00 PM

Usually May is the time of the year when students are fitted for the cap and gown, count their credits, pay their school bill and plan the parties. With a firm handshake and a costly piece of paper, they will start their lives in the real world.

That won't be true for Julea Ward, who used to be a graduate student at Eastern Michigan University until she was kicked out for her religious beliefs.
(Click on the title to read the whole story at

This is totally ridiculous. This woman did nothing to anyone. She responded to her own conscience and religion, and found another counselor who could help. And for that, she was kicked out.

Everyone had better beware. If this can happen to people like Julea Ward, it can happen to anyone. The day will come when this is turned around, and you can be kicked out for any reason that is considered "intolerant." And the way it's going, everyone is likely to be labeled intolerant in one degree or another.

The days of free speech are over.

Whether you agree with her or not, Miss Prejean is entitled to her opinions. I disagree with her opinion on Gay Marriage, however, I will defend to the death, her right to express those opinions. But it seems that we are fast losing our right to free speech in this country.

Senator Nazi Pelosi and Senator "Dingy" Harry Reid want to reinstate the (UN)fairness doctrine to put a muzzle on free speech. Mario Armando Lavandeira (Perez Hilton) wants to shut up those who oppose Gay marriage, and now, the California pageant wants to take away Miss Prejean's Miss CA title because of a "provocative" picture?

Someone tell me, what's so provocative about this picture? I've seen more skin in a Victoria Secrets catalog.

Now, just so we're clear, I'm not denying Mario's right to free speech. He has every right to say what he thinks. But so does Carrie Prejean. And so do I. And if you don't like it, tough.

How Obama actually delayed pirate rescue
SEAL team deployment stalled 36 hours, hampered by limited rules of engagement

WASHINGTON – While Barack Obama is basking in praise for his "decisive" handling of the Somali pirate attack on a merchant ship in the India Ocean, reliable military sources close to the scene are painting a much different picture of the incident – accusing the president of employing restrictive rules of engagement that actually hampered the rescue of Capt. Richard Phillips and extended the drama at sea for days

Multiple opportunities to free the captain of the Maersk Alabama from three young pirates were missed, these sources say – all because a Navy SEAL team was not immediately ordered to the scene and then forced to operate under strict, non-lethal rules of engagement.(To read the rest of the story, click on the title of this article.)

The Left just doesn't get it

Two days after the April 15th TEA parties, and the left-wing media and politicos STILL don't get it! Nancy Pelosi prefers to down play the TEA party as an "astro-turf" thing, and not Grass roots.

CNN prefers to see it as a GOP/Conservative/Fox News creation. And so it continues. I don't know what the organizers of the TEA party day have in mind for the future, but it seems obvious to me, they are going to have to do something else. It seems that getting 250,000 + people to show up at these rallies all across the country is not enough to show those in power that we mean business.

What is wrong with RNC Chairman Steele's commnents to GQ?

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is under fire from social conservatives for telling GQ magazine that abortion is an "individual choice" and homosexuality is not. (To read entire story, click on title of this article.)
So, what is wrong with this statement? I mean, abortion is a choice. No one demands that any woman in America have an abortion. It's not mandatory......yet.

And, can anyone tell me, why would any man or woman CHOOSE a lifestyle that puts them in constant danger, regardless what their job is, or where they live? Ask yourself, would you choose a lifestyle that has you under harassment, threat of death, humiliation, and probably separation from your family?

The reason I ask, this is what generally happens to many in the GLBT community, when
you come out, are found out, or are outed by someone else to the public at large.

Yes, there are some exceptions, but for the most part, when you come out of the "closet," as the saying goes, you generally face much more pain and misery than if you don't. And any jack ass who thinks that being gay is a choice, hasn't thought the situation through,
at all.

A Canadian Opinion on Barack's Election Victory

Barack fools us

Whole world will pay for America's electoral mistake


A young student friend e-mailed me on Tuesday night.

"Have locked myself in my room because the place is full of little idiots -- who cannot spell Barack Obama's name and could not name one of his foreign or domestic policies -- running around screaming obscenities about George Bush, conservatives and how Sarah Palin is a bitch. I love democracy!"

Even so, the people spoke. A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere.

A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.

A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon.

Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meagre political fashion.

Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative.

Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition.


A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity.

A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.

Also a defeat for one of the weakest presidential candidates in living memory.

Why would anyone vote for a man who seemed incapable of outlining his policies and instead repeatedly emphasized a noble but, if we are candid, largely irrelevant war record?

He was joined by a woman who was defended so vehemently by her supporters when it was cuttingly evident that she is years away from being, and perhaps never will be, a serious candidate for senior national office.

Most of all it was a terrible defeat for democracy and the United States. A politician of nothing defeated a nothing politician and a credulous electorate screamed in adoration. I fear we will all suffer very much indeed.

I found this, looking for the London Daily Mail "story," called "British Editorial on Obama's Victory." Something about it, just didn't ring true to me. So I started checking on it. And I finally found the original story posted in the Toronto Sun. Which you can see if you click on the title of this blog post.

This one is the real McCoy.

Professor Called Police After Student Presentation

Professor Called Police After Student Presentation

Posted by admin on 2/24/09 • Categorized as News

For CCSU student John Wahlberg, a class presentation on campus violence turned into a confrontation with the campus police due to a complaint by the professor.

On October 3, 2008, Wahlberg and two other classmates prepared to give an oral presentation for a Communication 140 class that was required to discuss a “relevant issue in the media”. Wahlberg and his group chose to discuss school violence due to recent events such as the Virginia Tech shootings that occurred in 2007.

Shortly after his professor, Paula Anderson, filed a complaint with the CCSU Police against her student. During the presentation Wahlberg made the point that if students were permitted to conceal carry guns on campus, the violence could have been stopped earlier in many of these cases. He also touched on the controversial idea of free gun zones on college campuses.

That night at work, Wahlberg received a message stating that the campus police “requested his presence”. Upon entering the police station, the officers began to list off firearms that were registered under his name, and questioned him about where he kept them.........(click on the title to read the whole story)

Ok, it's official, do NOT talk about guns, or some nut case will call the police and say you've threatened them.

Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, which opposes open-carry laws: "We don't want more people carrying guns either openly or concealed because the more guns you have in a situation, the more likely you are to get gun violence."

WHAT is this guy's problem? Is he not getting laid? Does he not know how to read? Seems to me, he needs to get a life, or rather, get out and enjoy life, in stead of staying closed up, in that office, believing all the bull sh*t his "researchers" are feeding him, in that
deep, dank, dark hole, know as the Brady Campaign.

And yes, as a Concealed Pistol License holder, I do take offense at his words. I have yet to shoot anyone, since I got my permit, almost 6 years ago. (Don't ask me about what happened before that. )

But I'll be more than willing to listen to his apology......if he has the gonads to make one. (Which I highly doubt.)

Divorce Agreement between Liberal and Conservative America

I got this through one of the many 2nd amendment groups I belong to.
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950's, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has run its course. Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).

We'll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies and illegal aliens. We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N.. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

We'll keep the SUVs, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.

You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

We'll practice trickle down economics and you can give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you ANWAR which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

Law Student and an American

P.S. Also, please take Barbara Streisand & Jane Fonda with you.

P.P.S Of course you could not forget Pelosi as leader of the gang!

The latest crazyness from "The PEN" (The People's Email Network)

Yesterday, I received the following from "The PEN." Some of my comments are
interspersed in parenthesis, and colored red.
Take ALL Tax Cuts Out Of Economic Stimulus Package, They Won't Win A Single Republican Vote Anyway

Haven't We Learned Yet That Tax Cuts Do LITTLE To Stimulate The Economy (Apparently you haven't learned that tax cuts DO stimulate the economy.)

The whole reason we are in the economic perilous straits we are in right now, is the lunatic Republican fixation on tax cuts, (BZZZT!! WRONG. The WHOLE reason we are in this mess is the way the Democratic led Congress and Senate screwed up the Credit industry, insisting they make home loans to people who really couldn't afford it. IF you want some one to blame, look to Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank and who ever else was responsible for the Fanny Mae debacle.) which all competent economists (read left wing loon economists) agree are the WORST way to boost the economy. People need real jobs with real wages, and until they get them they will not have any taxes to cut. And until people have jobs, and are making money again, the economy does not have a prayer.

But even so, president Obama tried in a bipartisan way (Bipartisan my ass. The current Democratic version of bipartisanship is we make the laws and you sign on the dotted line, or else.) to build lots of tax cuts (and even more in Democratic pork) into the package for the Republicans to try to placate them, hundreds of billion of dollars worth. And what did the Republicans in the House do? They just spit in his face. Not ONE Republican voted for the bill, not one!! (THANK the GODS and GODDESSES!) All of the tax cuts need to come out, all of them, and be put into infrastructure building jobs instead. And then we'll have a bill that actually works for America.

No Tax Cuts For Stimulus Action Page:

People like Rush Limbaugh have said straight up they just want our new president to fail. (You obviously don't listen to the man, if you did, you'd know how wrong you are.) That's how much they hate America, (Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?) after all the damage they have done, they just want to do more. And whether the rest of the Republican party says it out loud or not, they just want to sabotage any possible recovery so they can seize power again. (You really are stupid, aren't you.)

So what's the point of crippling our own recovery plan with yet more tax cuts (Don't forget the pork that was put in too.) which have NEVER worked in the past, and which even the Republicans DO NOT support? Instead, we say take ALL the tax cuts out, and then let's have a national debate on why Republicans are obstructing the change(Change? Looks to me like business as usual, for a Democrat controlled congress and Senate that is.) that America voted for in such overwhelming margins. (I wouldn't call 53% to 46% an overwhelming margin. That's a difference of what? Four or five percent. A winning margin to be sure. But overwhelming? Hardly.)

No Tax Cuts For Stimulus Action Page:

And because it is such an important action, every return page from every action page on our site from now on will include the new Local State Prosecutor lookup, where you can instantly get the contact information for the district attorney in your county, to write or call or fax them to demand they prosecute Bush and Cheney for the murder of citizens of their county, in a war based on patently false pretenses in Iraq. (I would think, the detainees in Gitmo would be more likely targets for murder prosecution, since many of them pulled the trigger.)

Renowned former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi (No wonder he's "Former prosecutor.") has laid out a compelling case for charging both Bush and Cheney with the premediated (I think you mean "premeditated.") murder of American service men and women, for starting a war with Iraq on patently false pretenses. By using this new lookup page you can instantly get the mailing address, phone, fax, and in many cases also the email of your local prosecutor. This action is SO critical we have also dedicated our entire main site homepage to it.

Local Prosecutor Lookup:

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not asking anyone to file a "formal" criminal complaint yourself. Common sense tells us that a state prosecutor will only act, in the exercise of their OWN discretion, if they believe there is a non-frivolous case to bring. But by speaking out, we can let them know there is community support for them to do so.

We cannot depend only on the single chance of Attorney General Nominee Holder taking aggressive and righteous action. There has been entirely too much "sweep it all under the rug" talk in the White House transition. But there are nearly 3,000 county level state prosecutors in the country. (Who have absolutely NO JURISDICTION to file a case) (I think this next word should start with an uppercase "A." I mean, really, dude, get a spell checker or something.)and they aren't ALL complacent toadies. So as much of an improvement as Holder may be, only pressure from all flanks will compel him to act. And some state prosecutors, prosecuting their own cases, is just the formula.

It seems the entire corporate media is trying to sing the same song of inaction, to try to smear as being "hateful" anyone who loves and wants to restore the constitution. What a smear on the idea of upholding the rule of law to characterize anyone who thinks that monstrous war crimes actually ought to be prosecuted as just being out for "revenge". (Odd, I don't hear you crying about prosecuting the war criminals we have in Gitmo. Or is that just us seeking revenge?)

Friends, the same demons and their proteges who committed all the crimes which now so shame us will be back even stronger before we know it, unless Bush and Cheney are prosecuted now. Now we learn there was not a single member of the media who was not illegally and systematically wiredtapped. (I think they meant "wire tapped") We were that close to a totalitarian police state,(And with Obama in Office, we are only getting closer.) and we have but a small window of opportunity to keep from endorsing the crimes of the future, by prosecuting NOW (Really? You want to prosecute the National Organization for Women???) to the full extent and duty of the law.

Imagine what it would be like if we found just ONE crusading state prosecutor to respond to the call of destiny. Imagine what it would be like if a DOZEN or more suddenly sprang into action, because of our many letters, and phone calls, and faxes and emails. We can open up an whole new third front, and keep it open.

And after you use the local prosecutor lookup, from the same page you can also request one of the new "Convict Dick & W" caps from the same page, complete with a little embroidered cowboy hat on the "W". Yes, a tiny cowboy hat for a very small man, the Cowboy from Connecticut, our first presidential felon to be, George Bush. It's perfect. (I take back what I said earlier. You're not stupid. You plain out nuts.)

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.

Support the 2nd Amendment

The following is a copy of a petition to Support the Second Amendment. The only difference is I made a spelling correction, and the links are active.

The petition was created and written by Robert Ault.
To: U.S. Congress

In response to the YouTube video showing the British in the largest peaceful march in their history, asserting their right to bear arms:

We the people of the United States of America sign this petition affirming our beliefs in the governing laws and regulations set forth in the Constitution of the United States of America. In particular we support the forth article in the Bill of Rights which states the right of the people to keep and bear arms:

Article the fourth [Amendment II][4]
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The constitution can be read in its entirety online at:

Along with the full Bill of Rights submitted as explanatory and restrictive clauses to the constitution:

Lastly the additional amendments that have been added over the course of history:

If you agree with these statements in particular the right to keep (own) and bear (carry) guns then please sign this petition asserting your support. This petition is not the result of a law that has been enacted infringing our rights to keep and bear arms but affirms your support of those rights.

A recent estimate of the population in the United States (Jan. 2009) was 310 million. The goal of this petition is to collect 1% of all American's (3.1 million) signatures at which time it will be submitted to our US Congress to remind them whose interests they are representing.

Remember to send the link to everyone you know so that they have a chance to decide their support.


The Undersigned

P.S. I have no idea what "Article the fourth" means. I presume it's something in regard to the original webpage,

An open Letter to President Bush

Dear President Bush,

I'd just like to say "Thank You," for keeping us safe from further terrorist attacks after 9/11/01. For keeping the terrorist/combatant prisoners off our soil, in Gitmo. For ridding the world of a sadistic dictator (Saddam Hussein). And for restoring order and democracy to two countries, long in need of a political over haul.

I have not always agreed with everything you did, while in office. But I have always supported you. I voted for you both times, and would do so again, if the chance should present it's self.

I hope you have a good, and long life in retirement. You definitely deserve it.
