Taxpayers stormed Washington, D.C. yesterday in record numbers. Fed up with overspending, and fear of the government taking over health care, protesters came in from all around the country to let political leaders in Washington know that they simply had enough. The number of supporters that came range from the thousands, ten thousand, to 2 million as reported by the London Daily Mail. What ever the number is you can surely see by the over view pictures (courtesy of World Net Daily) that this was no small crowd.

Miraculously, the White House stated that they were unaware of the rally, and that President was out of town in Minneapolis, Minnesota to promote his health care plans.  Isn’t that interesting? We all know that he knew that there was going to be a rally, but like always he decided to avoid listening to the other side. I must say that out of all my years of being interested in politics I have never seen such a partisan president as I have seen in President Obama.  Both President Bush and President Clinton always showed signs of not only listening to the other side, but even compromising when need. Obama stated that his door is always open, but he has not had a meeting with political leaders of the Republican Party since April and has avoided requests to do so since then. Simple put, the Democrats have basically shut the door to the Republicans on this and many other issues.

This attitude that the Democrats are displaying, will no doubt hurt them in the next coming elections in 2010. Hopefully, Republicans can undo most of the damage that the liberals are doing to our great nation.

I am proud of the response we have received in the recent weeks from the government. We, those of a conservative mind set, have been speaking out and making it well known what we will and will not stand for recently. And it seems to have had some effect. At least on the topics of Van Jones’ resignation and the presidential school speech. Having visited the www.ed.gov website frequently in the past weeks I had noticed the wording of the activities, questions, and the speech itself changed numerous times. This had caused great concern among conservative parents that there maybe indoctrination included in the speech given to the school children by our President. After all, with the brief but controversial past of President Obama and his administration it is our right to question what would possibly be next.

Of course, there had to be a tidbit about the environment in there as all public education does, as Obama said, “You’ll need the knowledge and problem-solving skills you learn in science and math to cure diseases like cancer and AIDS, and to develop new energy technologies and protect our environment.” And naturally to keep it politically correct, we have to throw in some statements about discrimination and fairness. But all in all, the revised and finished product was one in which I do not have a problem. In fact, I have a favorite quote from the speech. It is, “if you quit on school — you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.”

I also liked how he ended it with “God bless you. God bless America.” We all know that if a republican president had said those words the liberals would be all over it screaming “separation between church and state.” But that wouldn’t be good for supporting their choice in presidency, so we won’t be hearing any of that this time. Unlike when President George H.W. Bush gave his school speech and the democrats went crazy with investigations, hearings, accusations, and being denounced by the National Education Association itself.  Yes, we have heard, “You won’t be saying this if it was a republican president.” No, probably not so much, but you (the left) would. Check out this article from The Washington Examiner, When Bush Spoke To Students, Democrats investigated, held hearings, it explains the great lengths the opposition went to denounce President George H.W. Bush’s very similar speech.

I think we can take this two ways. One, is what I mentioned earlier, a victory in having shaped the change in what could have quite possibly been indoctrination (due to the many changes to the curriculum and speech I think it may have been). The second, is to watch for possible future speeches to the youth that may have indoctrination. We can’t let our guard down if there is a second or third speech. We must always be informed as to what is being presented to our children.

Mark Lloyd, the newly appointed chief diversity officer at the Federal Communications Commission has an interesting stance on freedom of speech indeed. Although Mark Lloyd has stated that he finds the Fairness Doctrine unnecessary, his comments and previous speeches and writings prove that he does in fact support the overall goals of the Fairness Doctrine though be it through a back door method. Mark Lloyd does in fact support more regulation, more taxes and fines, increased government intervention into the commercial media such as public radio, and more in which he believes asserts diversity. Such as in the Center for America Progress proposal co-authored by Mark Lloyd which said:

“. . . a spectrum use fee should be levied on owners to directly support local, regional, and national public broadcasting. A fee based on a sliding scale (1 percent for small markets, 5 percent for the largest markets) would be distributed directly to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting with clear mandates to support local news and public affairs programming and to cover controversial and political issues in a fair and balanced manner. We estimate that such a fee would net between $100 million and $250 million.”

Mark Lloyd’s more popular public stance is one in which he praises Hugo Chavez. He praises the way that he took over the media and controlled what was once ran by the people of his nation. Lloyd calls Chavez “incredible” and “dramatic.” So, I guess Mark Lloyd is saying he approves of Hugo Chavez forcing private media out of business? It would appear that way. He has made his opinions very clear and even put them into writing as recently as 2006 in his book Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America. In that book Lloyd reveals his opinion of the First Amendment (our freedom of speech) by stating this:

“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least blind references to freedom of speech or press serves as a distraction from the critical examination of other communication policies. The purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules [by the government], fines, and regulations, that would promote democratic governance.”

Unbelievable! You see, not only does he not hold freedom of speech in any high esteem, but he seeks to do away with it to promote democratic governance. This should alarm you no matter who you are. This isn’t a matter of bipartisanship, it is a matter of telling you what to think. It is a matter of telling you what you can and cannot know. It is EXACTLY the same thing that Hugo Chavez has done in Venezuela, the same that Mark Lloyd has praised.

Now, I hate to be the barer of bad news, but this is yet another communist “czar” being put in the White House. Is there anyone else who thinks this is just a little suspicious that all these people being put in are fans of socialism or communism? There are more; John Holdren, Van Jones, and Mark Lloyd are just a couple that I have touched on. I have a great deal of concern for the future of our ability to voice our opinions. I have a great deal of concern for the future of our freedom as a whole. Media has such a big way of reaching out and forming community with others, no matter what your political opinion is, it should never be silenced.

Here’s the link from the Bill Bennett show to sign the “Free Our Health Care Now” Online Petition. When we went on there had already been 1181804 people sign as of August 31. Let’s keep it going up and show that we are the majority!

09/08/09, 1269814 have signed

09/09/09 (we won’t ever see this date again!), Thought I heard on the Bill Bennett show that 09/08 was the last day to sign, but the link is still working to sign and it is still on his website as well so sign away! Oh, and now it is up to 1290488 at 09:28am ET.

I almost feel bad posting this today, being as Ted Kennedy has just passed on. But had it not been for him passing on, I would not have come upon this. I was researching Senator Kennedy’s past and I found this KGB letter speaking of Kennedy and an offer he gave to them. You will understand after reading it for yourself. Here is the link below:

If you read my previous post from early this morning regarding the Democrats using Ted Kennedy’s death to push the reform bill, I said it would be no later than tomorrow. Well, I was wrong. Nancy Pelosi has already said, “Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration.” I knew it would happen, they can’t just mourn for a day, it is always about the political agenda.

This opinion is based on the following article:

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.042f28c9079866457d38460339a34a8b.61&show_article=1&catnum=0

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/08/26/democrats-invoke-kennedys-death-calling-health-care-reform/

Edward M. Kennedy, known as “the lion of the Senate”, was also known to be a supporter of the health care reform bill. Now with his passing away, would Democrats and President Barack Obama see it as their opportunity to get a few more unsure supporters off the bench to get the health care reform passed? It really would not surprise me. Nothing would at this point. Having heard Senators and Congressman calling those opposed to the bill names and talking about using the reconciliation process to bypass the opposition, why would they not stoop to using a man who is now resting in peace? I think we will hear it by tomorrow at the latest. I can hear it now, “Let’s do this for our good friend and loyal servant Edward M. Kennedy, it is what he would have wanted.” I hope that none of those that are leaning away from the health care bill would be so easily swayed. But, as with all things, only time will tell.

N.C. State Senator Soles Shoots One of Two Intruders

A Democrat with a gun??? I thought they were against that. Here they tell us that we don’t need them, yet here is a perfect example of why we do and why even a senator needs a way to protect himself.

The Boycott On Beck Is Backfiring

Of course it is! Glenn Beck does a great job on his commentary on politics and news. But that is what it is, commentary. And commentary is an opinion, opinion is part of free speech, and (as far as I know or I’m in big trouble) freedom of speech is still allowed in America. There have been many far worse things said about President Bush by popular leftist media speakers in the past and they were not completely ostracized and dragged through the mud the way Beck has been.

Proof Obama Participated In Socialist Party

I can’t say that I am surprised. Anyone who bothered to educate themselves by looking at his past voting record prior to the presidential election could see that he had a socialist agenda. Now, here is an article posted in WorldNetDaily.com that shows print copies of Obama’s picture and name as a member of “The New Party”, a known socialist group.

The Lockerbie Bomber, also known as Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, was convicted of bombing the Pan Am Flight 103 on December 21, 1988. He is responsible for the deaths of 270 innocent people. In my opinion, he is no better than any other murderer. And now, because he has terminal prostrate cancer, Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill is allowing his release to go and die in his homeland “on compassionate grounds.” This is hardly fair to the victims and their families! They did not get any last moments with their loved ones, or die in the comfort of their own surroundings. Instead it was in a firy hot airplane as it was blown to pieces by this man or by the remains of the jet crashing down on them. So why should his fate be anything less? I think he should have been put to death, but at the very least, he should die in prison.

This opinion is based on the following article:

Is it true that the government should provide for the American people’s health care? Is it their responsibility? The answer to both questions is a firm no. There is nothing in the constitution that holds the President, Congress, or any other responsible for our health care. It is not considered necessary and proper. Now the states can, but not the federal government.  In fact, the 10th Amendment states this:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The following article written by Chelsea Schilling and posted on worldnetdaily.com (wnd.com) explains it perfectly as to how the federal government does not need to or have the responsibility to interfere in the handling of the people’s health care.
