“Allah is God, we recall at dawn, Praying ‘til night during Ramadan At this joyful time we pray happiness for you, Allah be with you all your life through.”
But when it came time to perform the “Christian” part of Christmas, children were assigned to say:
“I didn’t know there was a little boy at the manger. What child is this? I’m not sure if there was a little boy or not. Then why did you paint one on your nativity window? I just thought if there was a little boy, I’d like to know exactly what he (sic) say.” Micah Clark, executive director of the Indiana AFA, launched an Internet protest once he heard about the allegations. “What surprised me here is that we’ve had a secular scrubbing of Christmas for so long and the school apparently didn’t see the problem with kids singing to Allah,” he told FOX News Radio. “You won’t even mention Jesus and you’re going to force my child to sing about Allah?” In email correspondence the school initially defended the reference as a way to be inclusive of all religions. However, once complaints starting rolling in, school leaders decided to eliminate the Allah reference. That drew the ire of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana. “It’s unfortunate if that was removed from the program just because of Islamophobic feelings,” Shariq Siddiqui told the Indianapolis Star. “Schools are a place where we should learn more about each other rather than exclude each other based on stereotypes and misconceptions.” But Clark said having children bow and pray is problematic for non-Muslim families. “(This show) affirmed Islam and negated Christianity. I wouldn’t have had a problem if it had been equal to all faiths.”

"I can't see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!"
"Can you delete any e-mails you may have had with Keith re AR4?"
"I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith's to hide the decline."
"The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty we can't."
"I'm getting hassled by a couple of people to release the CRU temperature station data. Don't any of you three tell anybody that the UK has a Freedom of Information Act!"
Global warming alarmist George Monbiot of the Guardian concedes that the e-mails "could scarcely be more damaging," adding, "I'm dismayed and deeply shaken by them." He has called for the resignation of the CRU director.
Quite possibly the CRU e-mailers were sincere in their belief that they were saving the planet. Like Al Gore, they wanted to convince the world's elites that the time for argument is over, the scientific consensus is clear and those who disagree can be dismissed as cranks (and should be disqualified from receiving research grants).

This all sounds good to me except for the “disagrees with three or more”. That is a cop out and a recipe for failure. Stand firm or don’t stand at all!

The Republican leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said the vote was anything but procedural — casting it as a referendum on the bill itself, which he said would raise taxes, cut Medicare and create a "massive and unsustainable debt."
Vice President Joe Biden told Iowa Democrats that the Senate handed the president a big victory with its decision.
"Tonight we have more momentum than we've ever had in the history of health care discussions,'" Biden told about 1,000 Democrats in Des Moines.
The legislation would require most Americans to carry insurance and provide subsidies to those who couldn't afford it. Large companies could incur costs if they did not provide coverage to their workforce. The insurance industry would come under significant new regulation under the bill, which would first ease and then ban the practice of denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions.
Congressional budget analysts put the legislation's cost at $979 billion over a decade.

You view the videos and decide.
This stuff should concern you, it sure scares me!
AMAZING! Think of all the people that could have jobs. Very Interesting!!
About 6 months ago a oil news program asked a Forbes brother a question, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer, how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground." Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together.."
The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) (Link is above) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota ; western South Dakota ; and extreme eastern Montana .... check this out:
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.
'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea..' says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.'This sizable find is now the highest-producing on shore oil field found in the past 56 years' reports, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada . For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves.... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
Maybe Obama needs to conduct an Oil summit?

This man is the President of the United States of America! His speech confirms his lack of history. His speeches side with Islam over Christianity. His Muslim back ground and faith are very apparent in his words.
At no time in our history have we had a President bow down. At no time has an American President sided with terrorist and proclaim that we will never be at war against such. He has changed the word terrorism to, “manmade disaster”. He has failed to acknowledge that the Fort Hood shootings is the 1st US terrorist attack on American soil since 9-11.
He has taken over a private US company and ordered the firing of the CEO, this company continues to fail while others prosper.
The US dollar is at its lowest in history. Price of Gold is at its highest in history. The US military is experiencing the highest casualties in our war since his inauguration and he delays any support or relief. He has increased our national debt to the highest in history. He is attempting to take control over the greatest health system in the world and reduce your freedom of choice. He has attempted to silence an entire news network that exposes is true agenda.
Obama is the greatest embarrassment and perhaps national threat in the history of the United States of America.
You view the video and you decide!

While admitting he was not familiar with all the facts in the case, President Obama took the side of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., saying the Cambridge, Mass., police "acted stupidly" in arresting him at his home.
"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that. But I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly”
Sharon Gregory, 48, who lives just a few roads away from Fort Worth said the community had long feared an attack.
"I kind of thought after 9/11, it was only a matter of time before there was a terrorist attack here. I almost wish it had been," she told the Texas Statesman newspaper.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) Wednesday called the Fort Hood killings an “act of terror” and joined a parade of GOP critics in suggesting that “political correctness” might have been a factor in not preventing the shootings.
“We ought to make sure ‘political correctness’ never impedes national security,” McCain said in a speech at the University of Louisville.
McCain’s comments echoed those of a variety of Republican politicians and commentators — as well as Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn) — over the past few days as information about the background of the alleged shooter has surfaced in the media. The criticisms, which initially focused on the failure of the administration and the Army to use the word “terrorism” or “jihadism” in connection with Fort Hood, are now being merged with a larger Republican portrayal of the Obama administration’s approach toward terrorism generally.
Barack Obama gave his second statement on the Fort Hood massacre, and this one went better than his first. He cautioned Americans to let law-enforcement agencies do their job in investigating the 13 murders apparently committed by Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan and to avoid “jumping to conclusions” based on incomplete data.
"We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts," Obama said in a Rose Garden statement otherwise devoted to the economy.
Who is Barack Hussein Obama?

The last 45 of my 66 years I've spent in a commercial fishing town in
Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until
this last year. Here's the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin
controversy gets it. It's not about persona, style, rhetoric, it's
about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that
I'm about to mention here.
1-Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as
soon as Palin took the Governor's office away from a fellow Republican
and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican's
"Corrupt Bastards Club" (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now
residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits. The Democrats reacted by
skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, "la la la
la" (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that
has ever done anything similar.
2-Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the
huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new
system of splitting the oil profits called "ACES." Exxon (the biggest
corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, "don't let
the door hit you in the stern on your way out." They stayed, and
Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the
other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again,
give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.
3-The other thing she did when she walked into the governor's office is
she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as
"pork." She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed
them in the "when-hell-freezes-over" stack. She let locals
know that if we need something built, we'll pay for it ourselves. Maybe
she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous
governor's jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by
dismissing the governor's cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family),
giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already
had a car, and dismissing her State provided security force (never
mentioning - I imagine - that she's packing heat herself). I'm still
waiting to hear the names of those other governors.
4-Now, even with her much-ridiculed "gosh and golly" mannerism, she
also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas
pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the
history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If
that doesn't impress you, then you're trying too hard to be unimpressed
while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with
her other hand..
5-For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place
called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they
couldn't start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No
governor for 30 years could make them get started... This summer, she told them
she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and
threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to
the court house. Alaska won again.
6-President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for
electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for
Alaska to be at 50% renewables by 2025. We are already at 25%. I
can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and
persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that's just a
cover-up. I'm still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other
governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won't be
holding my breath.
By the way, she was content to return to AK after the national election and
go to work, but the haters wouldn't let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a
barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.
You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along
with the democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her.
I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral
people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents' wives.
So "You go, Girl." I only wish the men in Washington had your guts,
determination, honesty, and morals.
I rest my case.
Only FOOLS listen to the biased media.

"If signed into law, this bill will result in a government takeover of our health care. This bill means taxes will be raised, health care costs will increase, Medicare will be cut, choices will be eliminated, the national debt will go up, businesses will lay off employees, and access to quality health care will decrease. Our Republican alternative would have lowered health care costs while protecting jobs and preserving the doctor-patient relationship. Unfortunately this common sense solution was rejected by the Democrats that control in favor of a plan that puts the federal government in charge of where, when, if and how Americans get health care."
"Rather than penalizing already-struggling small businesses, Congress must make it easier for them to afford health benefits. We must increase choices, make health costs tax deductible, expand health savings accounts, end waste fraud and abuse and control unnecessary lawsuits that drive up costs for everyone. I support reform that lets Americans keep their doctor, lowers costs, and keeps medical decisions between the patient and their doctor."
"The Democrat bill arbitrarily bars doctors from opening new doctor-owned hospitals, including the 124 that are currently under construction, and severely restricts the 235 existing doctor-owned hospitals like the Wenatchee Valley Medical Center in my district from expanding their services. We are headed down a very dangerous road when the federal government is getting in the business of deciding who can and who cannot own a hospital."
"There is a better solution than a government takeover of health care - and it doesn't involve penalizing hospitals, raising taxes or cutting Medicare. The plan I support focuses on lowing costs by expanding health care choices and tools to help families save, making it easier for small businesses to afford to offer care, ending lawsuit abuse, and protecting the doctor-patient relationship from government intrusion."
What is your congressman doing about health care? Please call and write your representatives, Obama must not succeed in turning America into a total socialist country!

"He was making outlandish comments condemning our foreign policy and claimed Muslims had the right to rise up and attack Americans," Col Lee told Fox News.
"He said Muslims should stand up and fight the aggressor and that we should not be in the war in the first place." He said that Maj Hasan said he was "happy" when a US soldier was killed in an attack on a military recruitment centre in Arkansas in June. An American convert to Islam was accused of the shootings.
Col Lee said that other officers had told him that Maj Hasan had said "maybe people should strap bombs on themselves and go to Time Square" in New York
Obama wants to honor these type of actions with a United States Stamp!
USPS New 44-Cent Stamp!!! Celebrates Muslim holiday .
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993!
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE! REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !
REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!
Now President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to REMEMBER and HONOR the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a new commemorative 44 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp.
REMEMBER to adamantly & vocally BOYCOTT this stamp, when you are purchasing your stamps at the post office. All you have to say is "No thank you, I do not want that Muslim Stamp on my letters!"
To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors.
Don’t lose faith, stand up! Vote, write letters and speak out, It’s your freedom, use it or lose it!
After more than a decade of public health care with mandatory coverage, so many Canadian doctors have left the practice and so many young people have entered other fields that Canada ranks 26th of 28 developed nations in its ratio of physicians to population. Once, Canada ranked among the leaders in the number of physicians -- but that was before government health care drove doctors out of the practice in droves, say columnists Dick Morris and Eileen McGann.
A recent survey of doctors by the Pew Institute found that 45 percent of all practicing doctors would consider retiring or closing their practices if the Barack Obama health care bill passes.
REPUBLICAN HEALTH PLAN WOULD REDUCE PREMIUMS, CUT DEFICIT
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Wednesday night released its cost analysis of the Republican health care plan and found that it would reduce health care premiums and cut the deficit by $68 billion over ten years.
The Republican plan does not call for a government insurance plan but rather attempts to reform the system by creating high-risk insurance pools, allowing people to purchase health insurance policies across state lines and instituting medical malpractice reforms.
THE PUBLIC'S BEST OPTION: LESS GOVERNMENT, MORE CHOICE
Consumers benefit from choice and competition. The key to both is not more government regulation and control, but less. More competition among health insurers is a consummation devoutly to be wished.
Tear down the barriers to buying health insurance across state lines:
• Under federal law, states are permitted to regulate "the business of insurance" as they see fit, and most of them have seen fit to allow the sale only of insurance policies licensed by their own state insurance commissions.
• As a consequence, there is no competitive national market for health insurance; there are 50 state markets instead, most of which are dominated by a handful of insurers.
Repeal mandatory benefits that make health insurance needlessly expensive:
• Compounding the lack of interstate competition is the way states drive up the cost of health insurance by making certain types of coverage compulsory.
• Consumers and insurers should be free to work out for themselves just how comprehensive or limited a policy should be.
• But state mandates prevent such flexibility by requiring insurance companies to sell a fixed array of benefits that many customers may not want.
• Individuals seeking plain-vanilla health insurance -- a policy that will cover them, say, in case of major surgery or catastrophic illness -- may find themselves forced to pay for a policy that also covers acupuncture, in vitro fertilization, alcoholism therapy and a dozen additional treatments.
• When compulsion takes the place of competition, the result is invariably less choice at higher cost.
De-link health insurance from employment:
• Nothing distorts America's health insurance market like the tax preference for employer-sponsored health insurance.
• Until that preference is removed, tens of millions of Americans will continue to rely on their employers' health plan instead of buying health insurance for themselves, they way they buy every other type of insurance.
• Fix the tax code, and no longer could insurance companies routinely bypass employees and deal only with their employers.
• Instead there would be intensive competition for individual customers -- and the lower premiums such competition would yield.

There is a lot of truth and common sense here!

For the first time since 2004, conservatives outnumber moderates and liberals.
The Gallup organization shows 40 percent of Americans describe themselves as politically conservative, 36 percent moderate and 20 percent liberal. David Almasi, executive director of The National Center for Public Policy Research, said people have seen a liberal administration at work during the past 10 months. "This could be a wakeup call for the liberal politicians," he said, "who think that they had a blank check to do whatever they wanted for the next two to four years."
The Republican victories in the races for New Jersey and Virginia governors put the party in a stronger position to turn back the political wave President Obama unleashed last year, setting the stage for Republicans to raise money, recruit candidates and ride the excitement of an energized base as the party heads into next year’s midterm elections.
The coalition that swept Obama into the White House was absent on Tuesday night, with evidence that the young, African-American and first-time voters who supported Mr. Obama failed to turn out to help the Democrats Mr. Obama had campaigned for: Gov. Jon S. Corzine in New Jersey and R. Creigh Deeds in Virginia.
Independent voters who had flocked to Mr. Obama in Virginia and New Jersey last year shifted on Tuesday to the Republican candidates in both states, Christopher J. Christie in New Jersey and Robert F. McDonnell in Virginia, according to exit polls in both states. That is a swing that will certainly be noted by moderate Congressional Democrats facing re-election next year, who may now be more reluctant to support Mr. Obama on tough votes in Congress.
Now, there is Hope for Change!

Presidential oath of office
When asked if there "is any concern at all about whether it is constitutional for Congress to impose a mandate [that individual Americans must obtain health insurance]," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, "no." He also said he had no reason to believe White House lawyers had ever considered the issue.
Was it your hope when Obama was elected that he would change the presidency and not follow the oath of office?
If Obama tries to force this health care debacle down our throats, will you stand up and demand that he be impeached?
Or will you roll over and let America die?
Born 1776, Died 2008
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning last November's Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29
Square miles of land won by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republicans won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country. Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.
How is that Hope and Change working out for you?

“Soros will establish the Climate Policy Initiative, an organization that will work with the US, China, India, Brazil and Europe and ensure that public interests are represented as new issues that affect climate change are established. According to Thomas Holler, who will lead the initiative, “It will be part advisory service, part policy developer and part watchdog.”
What a coincidence !!
That will tie in nicely with this: Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty, Claims British Lord (see video and text below) - in December President Obama will fly off to Copenhagen again, this time to put his signature onto a document which effectively establishes a New World Government, based on “Climate Change” - formerly known as “global warming”.
Lord Christopher Monckton
“At [the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in] Copenhagen, this December, weeks away, a treaty will be signed. Your president will sign it. Most of the third world countries will sign it, because they think they’re going to get money out of it. Most of the left-wing regime from the European Union will rubber stamp it. Virtually nobody won’t sign it.
I read that treaty. And what it says is this; that a world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries, in satisfaction of what is called, coyly, “climate debt” - because we’ve been burning CO2 and they haven’t. We’ve been screwing up the climate and they haven’t. And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement.
How many of you think that the word “election” or “democracy” or “vote” or “ballot” occurs anywhere in the 200 pages of that treaty? Quite right, it doesn’t appear once. So, at last, the communists who piled out of the Berlin Wall and into the environmental movement, who took over Greenpeace so that my friends who funded it left within a year, because [the communists] captured it - Now the apotheosis is at hand. They are about to impose a communist world government on the world. You have a president who has very strong sympathies with that point of view. He’s going to sign it. He’ll sign anything. He’s a Nobel Peace Prize [winner]; of course he’ll sign it.
And the trouble is this: if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties - And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.
So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your humanity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.
But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire - it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.
So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:
Sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, O Union, strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
Lord Christopher Monckton has been telling us for years that “global warming” is a lie, and he was thrown out of Congress back in April this year for speaking the truth.

I have had the opportunity to visit Gettysburg and reflect on the sacrifice of the men on both sides of that war. Men who fought and died for what they believed in. It is a place that all Americans need to visit and understand that this was not a video game, not just a couple pages in a book, not about good vs evil, right vs wrong or even a war over slavery. It was very much a war over states rights and government control. Even though most agreed that Slavery in America needed to be ended, the how and means to that end was fought over. I contend that the men on both sides fought for their beliefs. South opposed a national government that was imposing it’s view and agenda on individual states. The President, Abraham Lincoln knew that he had to keep the nation together as the United States at all cost.
Our leaders, our presidents, our hero’s and the men that we look to as our founding fathers, builders and defenders of this nation, all have had the same qualities.
They were men of deep honor. Men that had seen and lived under the oppression and tyranny of an all controlling government system. Men guided by their Christian beliefs. Men whose personality and resolve was founded in those beliefs and the idea that government best services it’s population by not restricting the people. They believed in limiting the power and scope of government. The writers of the constitution understood how an all powerful central government system can imprison the governed by taking away self initiative and addicting them to hand outs/programs.
Look at just a few Presidents whose words and actions contributed to this great nation. They were men of the land, men that worked hard and knew the value of physical labor. Men who did not seek the office for their personal gratification. Men who the people looked to and asked to help lead the nation. Men who served because of honor and duty to the country. Men who had strong families, mother and fathers and religious beliefs that gave them a moral compass very early in their lives. They never viewed themselves as career politicians. Never did the seek the office for financial rewards or book deals.
George Washington; he was a surveyor, a farmer, a soldier and the 1st President of the United States, His wisdom was forged in experience as a military leader. He fought against the tyranny of an overbearing out of touch government that had strict controls over the people it governed. His leadership in the war helped free the American People to develop a government that was limited in its scope, power and ability to interfere in a citizens affairs.
Thomas Jefferson; the 3rd President if the United States was a very educated man, speaking and writing 7 languages. A man of honor and conviction, he would not live under the thumb of a repressive, controlling government. Being the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776) and one of the most influential Founding Fathers for his promotion of the ideals of republicanism in the United States. Major events during his presidency include the Louisiana Purchase (1803) and the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806). As a political philosopher, Jefferson was a man of the Enlightenment and knew many intellectual leaders in Britain and France. He idealized the independent yeoman farmer as exemplar of republican virtues, distrusted cities and financiers, and favored states' rights and a strictly limited federal government
Theodore Roosevelt; "No man can lead a public career really worth leading, no man can act with rugged independence in serious crises, nor strike at great abuses, nor afford to make powerful and unscrupulous foes, if he is himself vulnerable in his private character."An Autobiography, 1913
Ronald Reagan; As president, Reagan implemented sweeping new political and economic initiatives. His supply-side economic policies advocated reduced business regulation, controlling inflation, reducing growth in government spending, and spurring economic growth through tax cuts. Reagan had a large role in contributing to the downfall of the Soviet Union is collectively agreed that Reagan's defense policies, hard line rhetoric against the Soviet Union and Communism, as well as summits with General Secretary Gorbachev played a significant part in ending the War. He was notable amongst post-World War II presidents as being convinced that the Soviet Union could be defeated rather than simply negotiated with, a conviction that was vindicated by Gennadi Gerasimov, the Foreign Ministry spokesman under Gorbachev, who said that Star Wars was "very successful blackmail.
All of the above Leaders were God fearing men, had strong moral values, were devoted to their families and raised by a strong father.
Look at the contrast that we have in office today.
Look at the past Presidents words and actions that have failed Americans by taking their self responsibility away. Politicians/attorneys who sought to expand government, citizens dependence on government and the programs it developed. Men who took away responsibilities of family and self support for the idea that government could do better. All of their propaganda programs and lies have lead to where we are today.
Barack Hussein Obama, has valid questions to whether or not he is a natural born American and the issue is clouded in fraudulent documents. His father left his white mother and stayed in his native country until he died in Kenyan. Barack called his father a drunk and bigot. Barack has no back ground in business nor has he ever labored for a living at any time in his life. He has had friends, advisors and even a leader in faith that have verbally attacked the USA and even have ties to terrorist that would destroy our county. His wife said that for the 1st time in her life, she was proud of America, this was after her husband was elected. Barack has traveled abroad and apologized for the United States of America to our enemies, enemies that have swore to wipe Christianity off the face of the earth. Barack Hussein Obama who said that this is no longer a Christian Nation…physically bows down in front of Americas enemies. He appoints Gays to run the national school system. He appoints confessed communist and men with terrorist ties to the highest positions in his administration. He takes over an private business and appoints his own CEO. He is attempting to control ¼ of the US economy with a mandatory health care system. His administration is placing limits on how much an American citizen can earn. Obama is using the power of the federal government to limit the freedoms that so many have fought and died for to attain and defend.
The news each day continues to amaze and disappoint me; Obamas attacks free speech, attacks a privately operated news reporting agency, the FOX news network. The continued promotion of the Obama health care plan that is nothing short of a government take over and intrusion/limitation of individual rights. Obamas friends Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson are attacking Rush Limbaugh with allegations based on their political views with the sole goal being to stop a private venture of a citizen of the USA.
The Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California signing a into law a bill that restricts the 2nd amendment (effectively banning online and catalog sales of firearms and ammunition) of the United States and beware, as California goes…so goes the nation.
Beware an all powerful government and a President with a vision of a one world government!

That politician was a man and as such, knew that he could be held responsible for his own words. If the recipient of such a remark took issue with it as a matter of honor, he could challenge the scandal to a duel!
Where has that time gone? Where are those men? Where is that old code of honor that real men would give their lives to defend?
Why are we now left with the corrupt politicians, attorneys and court system that we have now?
Why? Lack of accountability, lack of respect and the lack of fearing reprisal and consequences!
Just think how quickly the nation could turn around and become responsible to the citizens again. Let’s just quickly number the benefits.
1. The total elimination of out spoken liars
2. The quick reduction of law suits including family court issues and frivolous suits
3. The mass exodus of lawyers from their profession to one that incorporates higher standards and ethics. (see # 9)
4. The absolute accountability of all elected officials.
5. The immediate turn around in population growth as justice rains down on the abusers of the old system
6. The complete stop of unprotected sex as new repercussions put an end to the “so what, who cares” attitudes of today.
7. The new approach that networks would take in approving programming and what is considered to be “family hour programming”
8. The savings that could be realized as the prison system gets relief for it’s over crowded conditions.
9. The immediate economic stimulus in the undertaker, grave digger, box maker, head stone carver, liar planting industry.
10. Lastly…how nice would it be to have people think about what they say before they say it. To have people treat each other with respect. To do unto others and as you would have other do unto you.
Remember when men were men and lairs where scared?
Bring back public Dueling!

It is very apparent when 12 days into his administration, some left wing, no spine, whining, socialist, can’t we all just get along, American hating, Ivy league flake…nominates Obama for the Nobel peace prize!
Then the ultimate disgrace comes when the committee actually votes to give him the prize when Obama has done nothing to deserve it. In fact, he has made America less safe in the few months he has been in office than any other President including Jimmy Carter. Even liberals are griping that he hasn't done enough to wind down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These are the same misfits that cheered as Obama releases the terrorists that were held by the Bush administration.
The jelly belly anti Regan, anti American cowards must have had a collective orgasm when Obama gave his speech on a nuclear free world and how his America would lead the way in achieving total disarmament.
Of course back here in the colonies, top Democrats congratulated Obama.
What has President Obama actually accomplished? The answer is nothing, nothing at all, but the liberals across the world are embracing him as their leader, their leader! Not an American leader but a Man they believe will be good for them, no one is asking, what is good for America.
At least Steele (the republican spokesman) said he thought it was "unfortunate that the president's star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights."
He said he doesn't think Obama will be "receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action." I think he is right, Americans may be waiting to see what is happening and that also seems to be a reflection on the dumb Americans (European view) as Obama’s approval rating maintains its steady decline into reality!
There was praise from two Democrats who also have won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Former President Jimmy Carter, who won in 2002, called Obama's selection a "bold statement of international support for his vision and commitment." And former Vice President Al Gore, who won two years ago, said Obama's prize was "extremely well deserved."
Obama has a lot in common with those two as he also does with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat who shared it in 1994.
Global Zero, comprising political and military leaders from around the world, applauded Obama's award, which was "in part based on his leadership to achieve the elimination of nuclear weapons."
Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who chairs the Democratic National Committee, called the award "an affirmation of the fact that the United States has returned to its long-standing role as a world leader."
Yep, disarm, rollover and adopt all of what our forefathers left behind for a new world, what they fought and died for, what America has held dear for over 200 years! Obama now gets an award for destroying America in his bid to be the next world leader!
I will give Obama credit for speaking one truth; Obama himself said he felt humbled and undeserving, declaring in a Rose Garden statement: "I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments."
This…Obama award appeared to be just a slap at former President George W. Bush from a committee that harshly criticized Bush for his military action in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
"People can read into it whatever they want," said former Bush spokesman Tony Fratto. "But when you're awarded a Nobel Peace Prize and the first question everyone asks is 'for what?' then you have to question what the motives of the Nobel committee are in making the award."
I am embarrassed by the way other countries are now manipulating my country…yep, I’m disgusted!
So, what do you think America?

Will Obama ever stop trying to destroy America?
Just compile the facts of who this man appoints, who he surrounds himself with and who he calls friends
It's past ime for "Safe and Drug Free Schools" Czar to resign.
Kevin Jennings is an open homosexual who is now serving the Department of Education as President Obama's "Safe and Drug Free Schools" czar.
Jennings is the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which pushes so-called "anti-bullying" policies which GLSEN admits are really about promoting "affirmation" of homosexual behavior in the school system.
Jennings is intolerant of the "religious right," 90% of whom enroll their children in public schools, and said in a 2000 speech "I'm trying not to say '[F---] 'em'...I don't care what they think. Drop dead!"
He wants homosexual indoctrination of students at all levels, having written the forward to a book entitled Queering Elementary Education, and saying in 2004, "Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation's public schools...There is no ‘other side' when you're talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students."
By his own admission he failed his legal duty to report what he believed to be a case of statutory rape when a young student approached him for counsel after the boy had been preyed on by an older adult in a local bus station bathroom. Jennings' main piece of advice: "I hope you know how to use a condom."
Kevin Jennings is not qualified under any ethical standard to be entrusted with the safety of our nation's public school children.

Allen is around 60 years old, served in Vietnam and earned 2 silver stars while fighting for the citizens of this great land.
He loves this country and as all military personal, gave and oath to protect this nation against danger, foreign and domestic.

Our Constitution was crafted by one of the greatest gatherings of conservative leaders in history. They desired a form of government which would protect and preserve “individual freedoms” and which would guarantee a federal government with strict limits on what it was allowed to do, with all other powers reserved for the individual states and the people.
There are many things that differentiate between the freedoms this country enjoyed over the first 175 years and the creeping tyranny of today. We are closer to tyranny now than we are to the freedoms codified in the greatest political document ever created by man.
The three core freedoms for every person are life, liberty and property.
LIFE – Each and every living person has the right to life. No one should be permitted to take that away without due process and the rule of law.
LIBERTY - No person should be forced into servitude or slavery for another.
PROPERTY – Each person must be secure in their property.
If any one of these core freedoms is diminished, it is a sign of approaching tyranny. We have seen massive erosion of these freedoms, even if it has largely been unseen by most of the citizens of this country. This slow ‘nibbling away at the edges’ has gone on for almost 85 years. It has been so slow that several generations have gone by; each maybe with some vague unease about the direction of our government. However, because there were no close examinations of the details, or realization of the long term consequences, no alarm has been raised.
Here are a few of the disturbing sign that are now mostly overlooked:
1. During the beginning of Roosevelt’s “New Deal”, the president wanted to pass legislation to give money and benefits to a vastly expanded population of ‘deserving’ people. In order to do this, his new laws had to pass constitutional muster. The Supreme Court ruled time after time that they were not constitutional. Roosevelt threatened to ‘pack the court’, that is, increase the number of Justices from the original nine to however many it took to get a liberal majority. With Democrat control of the other two branches, the Justices caved, and allowed the new socialist laws to stand.
2. The Roosevelt administration wanted total control on wheat production, pricing, and distribution. Because most wheat was shipped across state lines, he used the “Commerce Clause” of the Constitution as an excuse to put these laws into place. When a small farmer refused to comply with the new laws, because he only grew enough for use by his own family, he was successfully sued by the government and the ruling was upheld by the courts, on the farfetched argument that the use of his own wheat somehow impacted national commerce (since he didn’t have to buy wheat – thereby affecting other commerce).
3. In the name of helping seniors save for their retirement and of ‘doing good for widows and the destitute’, the Social Security program was formed. Good intentions are never proper reasons to take by force property from one person and give it to another.
4. More recently, in the case of Kelo, private residential property was taken under the rule of “imminent domain’ and given to a developer, another private entity, under the misguided notion that ‘good of the community’ would be served, because more property taxes would be paid to the city of Kelo by the shopping mall.
5. In the Klamath basin of Oregon, the government refused water for farmers to irrigate their fields to ‘protect’ some obscure sucker fish. In California, one of the most fertile valleys in the world is drying up and hundreds of thousands of people are facing economic ruin, again because government bureaucrats have deemed some ‘endangered’ minnow species might be harmed by these farmers growing much of the vegetable crops for the United States and the world. These unwarranted actions have destroyed the economic value of the farmers’ property and forced thousands to become jobless.
6. More and more laws are passed by Congress, but the details are left to an ever expanding mass of bureaucrats, who are not accountable, who have job protection. These faceless, ‘in-the-shadows’ people essentially continue on their way to legislating ‘social justice’, regardless of what party is in power. “Social justice”, as defined in the liberal mind, can never be achieved, because it means ‘equal results’. There can never be equal results, only equal opportunity. The results are the products of many things, such as natural ability, hard work, thrift, etc. The only way ‘social justice’ can be achieved, in the liberal mindset, is to take from those who produce and give to those who do not. The only way this can be done is to use the force of government.
There are glaring differences between a democratic republic and a socialist state:
1. When President Obama declares that “We need to ‘spread the wealth’.”, when talking to a blue collar worker, he is advocating a socialist agenda.
2. When a small democratic country removes a sitting president who committed acts of treason, on the orders of its Supreme Court and Congress, but the Obama administration joins the dictator lead countries of Cub and Venezuela and declares it a ‘military coup’, he becomes an enemy of freedom and displays his strong support for socialism.
Now, with the present administration, there is a wholesale assault on our remaining liberties.
1. When the leader of a country has legislation introduced, which is not allowed to be read by the legislative body or the people, Tyranny is just over the horizon.
2. When legislation is introduced which will determine who can receive life-saving procedures or medication, Tyranny is drawing near.
3. When crushing tax burdens are levied on citizens, in the name of “Saving the Planet” from non-existent threats, Tyranny is just around the corner.
4. The Obama administration ignored the Constitution and over 220 years of bankruptcy precedent to put the UAW, and other junior, unsecured creditors ahead of senior secured creditors in the Obama-forced bankruptcy of Chrysler. When the government trashes the Constitution and the rule of law by giving a non-investor firm, Fiat 15% of Chrysler, Tyranny is next door.
5. When legislation contains over 9,000 ear-marks, giving bribes and payoff money to special interests, and making no attempt to hide the graft and corruption it entails, Tyranny is at hand.
6. When the government confiscates more and more property in the form of taxes and fees, the tax payers become economic slaves.
7. When elected government officials receive special benefits, special status, special treatment, and are not subject to the laws which apply to the rest of the nation, they become the new American Royalty, and we become their serfs.
8. When an excessive number of laws, rules and regulations are put into place, no person can be secure in his core freedoms. This allows the government to fabricate charges against anyone for almost any reason. Harvey Silverglate makes this case very well in his recent book, “Three Felonies A Day”.
There have been three great works detailing the evils of socialism, and the tendency for it to slowly encroach upon a republic until a dictatorship is formed. These are:
“The Law” – by Frederic Bastiat in 1850
“The Road To Serfdom” – by F.A. Hayek in 1948
“Liberty and Tyranny” – by Mark Levin in 2009
It is quickly seen how they all describe the same movement from freedom, to socialism, to economic slavery, even though they are written 150 years apart.
In my opinion, Tyranny has already arrived, although in a temporary ‘soft’ form. If we do not turn back the liberal, socialist, statist assault, we will soon be reduced to a ‘Banana Republic” and ruled by a dictator, because the good intentions of some misguided people to ensure ‘equality’ for all, will end up putting chains of slavery on everyone.

"A wise prince will seek means by which his subjects will always and in every possible condition of things have need of his government, and then they will always be faithful to him." -- Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527)
"Every new regulation concerning commerce or revenue; or in any manner affecting the value of the different species of property, presents a new harvest to those who watch the change and can trace its consequences; a harvest reared not by themselves but by the toils and cares of the great body of their fellow citizens." -- James Madison (likely), Federalist No. 62
"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." -- James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829
"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If `Thou shalt not covet' and `Thou shalt not steal' were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free." -- John Adams, A Defense of the American Constitutions, 1787
"An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation." -- John Marshall
"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on the objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." -- James Madison
Probably most Americans would have a clearer conscience if all the neighbors were forced to put money in a government pot and a government agency would send the widow a weekly sum of $40 to hire someone to mow her lawn. This mechanism makes the particular victim invisible but it still boils down to one person being forcibly used to serve the purposes of another. Putting the money into a government pot makes palatable acts that would otherwise be deemed morally offensive. This is why socialism is evil. It employs evil means, coercion or taking the property of one person, to accomplish good ends, helping one's fellow man." --George Mason University economics professor Walter E. Williams
“Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis warned, ‘The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning but without understanding.’ The freedom of individuals from compulsion or coercion never was, and is not now, the normal state of human affairs. The normal state for the ordinary person is tyranny, arbitrary control and abuse mainly by their own government. While imperfect in its execution, the founders of our nation sought to make an exception to this ugly part of mankind’s history. Unfortunately, at the urging of the American people, we are unwittingly in the process of returning to mankind’s normal state of affairs. Americans demand that Congress spend trillions of dollars on farm subsidies, business bailouts, education subsidies, Social Security, Medicare and prescription drugs and other elements of a welfare state. The problem is that Congress produces nothing. Whatever Congress wishes to give, it has to first take other people’s money. Thus, at the root of the welfare state is the immorality of intimidation, threats and coercion backed up with the threat of violence by the agents of the U.S. Congress. In order for Congress to do what some Americans deem as good, it must first do evil. It must do that which if done privately would mean a jail sentence; namely, take the property of one American to give to another... There is no question that if one were to ask whether we Americans are moving towards more liberty or more government control over our lives, the answer would unambiguously be the latter—more government control over our lives.” —Walter Williams
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.” -Winston Churchill
“The war against illegal plunder has been fought since the beginning of the world. But how is... legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish this law without delay... If such a law is not abolished immediately it will spread, multiply and develop into a system.” — Frederic Bastiat
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - - Norman Matton Thomas, Six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America, 1884-1963
“I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” - - Norman Matton Thomas
"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny." -- James Madison
