Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

The Mother of All Big Government Control and World Order!

Now that the EPA has ruled CO2 and other naturally occurring gases (including methane--which is the common gas emitted by farm animals!) are dangerous to humans, you had better hold on to what little you have left in your wallet and the ever-fraying liberty you have to live as you wish--they are coming for you--EVERY ONE OF US!! Carbon dioxide a pollutant?? The very thing we breath out? The very thing that vegetation needs to grow (did you ever wonder why they say a plant grows when you talk to it--think about it??)!


The very idea that we humans think we can affect our climate is laughable. How vain are we?? We are but a speck of sand on a beach in the grand scheme of time. The fact of the matter is that there is clear evidence that the Earth undergoes natural climate ups and downs now as it has since the beginning of time! The sun is the primary driver for our climate--and sun spots in particular. And right now, the sun is VERY quiet in terms of spot activity which is now bringing us into a cooling phase and, some say, a coming mini ice age.

Drilled ice cores at the North Pole show evidence of ancient vegetation that could only have existed in a warm climate. So if hundreds of thousands of years ago there were no humans and obviously no fossil fuels then how was it that the North Pole was warm?? There are now hundreds of scientists that are being ignored by the radical left media and rabid environmentalists that totally debunk global warming. Do your research! Here are a couple of examples:

I don't want to debate the science here, as the science is bunk, but rather what so-called climate legislation means to all of us...

The dirty little secret is that global warming is just ANOTHER way for liberals and anti-capitalists to can gain even more control over you and your life and freedom and at the same time, of course, part you with even more of your money. This is the mother of all government control, after all how can you challenge it and who can be against a clean planet??

Besides carbon dioxide, the EPA will also now classify methane as a pollutant. Yes, methane, much of which comes from farm animals back ends! Are you kidding me?? Maybe that sounds funny, but consider how this would dramatically increase costs for all of us--particularly in regards to food:

1. The government taxes the farmer for the methane the animals emit--therefore the cost of the meat or dairy will go way up.

2. The government taxes the farmer through increased costs for fuel and energy in the name of phony global warming--therefore costs will go up.

3. The government taxes the meat/dairy processing plant through increased costs for its fuel and energy consumption--therefore the costs will go up.

4. The government taxes the transportation mode (truck, etc) that transports the product to the processing plant and then to the distribution chain and finally to the end user through increased energy costs and consumption--therefore the costs will go up.

5. The government taxes the company that produces the packaging for the product through higher energy costs and useless environmental charges for the packaging itself--therefore the costs will go up.

Get the point?

You see this is all about control and taxation and absolutely nothing else! And finally, who will be hurt the most by this?? The poor? Nope--they will just receive more hand outs and subsidies (money they take from the producers like you and me) so they won't care...

The rich?? Nah--whatever extra they pay won't have much affect on them--yet.

No, it will be paid by the middle class--you know the ones that the libs claim they actually want to help. We will have to make yet another sacrifice in our life--all for the sake of the collective and the greater good. Well I say-NO!!! I think the tea parties proved that there is growing distrust and anger with liberal policies and the Obama administration knows that radical climate legislation will be disastrous to him and to our country--so like the gutless cowards they are, they will be able to claim that they had nothing to do with it as a faceless bureaucracy instead institutes draconian policies that will cause misery and heartache to all. I say bring it on--the tipping point is here and this cannot stand! Developing...

It was so awesome to see all the great patriots in Norwich today and now that I have been home for awhile watching TV it is even more heartening to see the turnout around the country--that's right all you right wing extremists are really organized now! Oh, just so you know, Janet Napolitano (Homeland Security chief) said today she stands by the report saying that basically anyone who has a problem with a centralized, large federal government is a potential threat and could be radicalized. So they have drawn the line in the sand and big government, big brother has taken their side against hard working, God fearing, life respecting, second amendment, anti-illegal immigration Americans--that is average, everyday family people from all walks of life.

So let there be no doubt who they are targeting and what is at stake here.
THEY ARE NOW ON NOTICE THAT THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING AND WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED OR INTIMIDATED! Stand up and fight for our rights and what our Founding Fathers and generations of Americans who have volunteered and sacrificed in our military for the very things that big government can so easily and callously strip away from all of us. Let's make this a first step. Keep up the pressure and throw them ALL out of office next year!

How Do You Take Your Tea?


No matter how you take it, just make sure you do! Attend one of the hundreds of tea parties taking place next week and let's start making it known that we are sick and tired of the out of control spending an unconstitutional actions are government is going full steam ahead on.

This is not a left or right issue in my opinion, but rather about the very future and soul of our country and the insurmountable debt we will leave future generations that can never be paid back if it all comes to fruition. These parties also have to have the basic theme of rediscovering the brilliance of our founding documents and get us back to a true Constitutional republic--not a mob rule democracy like Europe.

Get involved and get educated--talk to as many people as you can--no matter what their party or who they voted for. Act as though our country's future depends on it--as it very well might!

Here are a couple of great things to check out: To get tea party info By Mike Church on Sirius Satellite radio--a Founding Fathers genius and real patriot. I don't know Lloyd, but I like him alot after seeing this!

God Bless the USA...

ARRRGHH! We Got a Lilly-Livered President.

Well thank God and our Navy Seals for helping to free Captain Phillips! I think this turned out great DESPITE Barack Obama, not because of him! He is required as President to act on such things but he should have acted much sooner. And more importantly, what will happen now?? As of today, these "pirates" (or as Al Sharpton calls them "volunteer Somali Coast Guard personnel") have taken 4 more ships in a brazen new wave of hijacking. Will the Obama administration and the leftist Europeans treat this as just a law enforcement issue (as Bill Clinton did when the first World Trade Center bombing took place) or what it should be: a bunch of thug terrorists that need to be wiped out and defeated so they can threaten no one again. But unfortunately, if I were placing a bet at your favorite CT casino, I would have to say the former! We shall see...

It gets real old, real fast pointing out the woefully inadequate protection of American sovereignty and exceptionalism by the Obama administration--last week it was the "America is Sorry" tour Obama did in Europe--calling us arrogant and racist--but I will deal with that another time.

Can you believe in 2009 we are still dealing with pirates of any kind?? Yes, we are and Barack Obama had the wrong response--again. Just as he did with North Korea, his wimpy response ( or non-response) emboldens and encourages more bad behavior.

Given that these "pirates" could possibly have extremist ties and are using the money they get for ransom, to among other things purchase arms and carry out other crimes, why didn't Obama make a stronger stance on this incident? A cargo ship with 20 American passengers on board hijacked for ransom? God bless the captain who did what he was trained to do and duty called him to do by turning himself over to protect the other passengers. That was the right thing to do...But then what should have been the United State's move?

Obama should have called a press conference and spoke directly into the camera and tell these thug criminals (or worse!) that they have 24 hours to turn over the captain unharmed or they will be taken out by the full force of the military--end of story, end of new conference...

But instead, Obama has his news conference on funding people who don't pay their mortgage (in a bid to take over more of the financial sector of our country hidden under the guise of helping struggling Americans) and refuses to even take questions on the pirate incident. Then our esteemed secretary of state goes out and says that we are going to consult with other countries to formulate a plan of action to respond--huh?? What a joke, I am sure those pirates are shaking in their boots now! Maybe the U.N. will issue a resolution condemning them? I am sure THAT will get them to stop kidnapping and murdering.

But once again we will make this a law enforcement issue instead of treating it for what it is, an attack on American sovereignty. Instead, Obama and his cronies cower in a corner like a scared animal hoping it will just go away--or is it just utter disdain and arrogance of the administration? Or total lack of understanding of the greater picture about why even small incidents like this must be dealt with swiftly, harshly, and decisively or you only encourage more. Probably a combination of all the above.If other countries what to actually pay these ransoms, than so be it as that is their prerogative. But we should make a clear statement that this will not be tolerated by the United States- with consequences that actually mean something- so they won't think of trying it again on us.

But as I have I said before, what do you expect from liberals who continue to think that if we just try to be friends with our enemies and all get along, that the evil that exists in the world will just go away. Get your head out of the sand (or other orifice) and stand up for America-please!!

God bless Captain Richard Phillips and his family and pray for his safe return soon!

North Korean Missile Launch--Another Obama Failure!

Today's long range missile launch "test" from North Korea proves yet another disappointing failure of Barack Obama, his weakness and misjudgement of the threats we face in this world today. This was more than just a test of technology, but rather a test for the new President on how he would respond to a rogue nation clearly provoking and threatening civilized countries such as S. Korea, Japan, and the US. And as expected, Obama failed to act and lead. The little pot bellied tin-horned dictator Kim Jong Il must be laughing and licking his chops at us--as are all terrorist dictators watching our reaction (see Iran and Russia).

This however is of no surprise to anyone who knows history. Liberals are classic appeasers and would rather put teeth less, useless United Nations sanctions (which by the way is a corrupt, American hating organization we all pay for!) on a country like North Korea who will just recognize that as a sign of weakness and will only embolden them (see Hitler). Do you think Kim Jong Il cares about sanctions? He starves his own people and they live in almost complete darkness while he lives in luxury by selling counterfeit pharmaceuticals and selling weapons technology to other terrorist countries (again ,see Iran) who hate us.

What should have been done, is in conjunction with Japan, the missile should have been knocked out of the sky and a bold statement made that "passed this line you will not cross". As Ronald Reagan said "peace through strength". This is the ONLY tactic that people like Kim Jong Il understand--anything else only encourages them. This does not require a John Kerry nuanced approach--only a simple examination of history and a dose of common sense.

We live in a dangerous world both at home and abroad--we must DEMAND that our elected leaders ALWAYS do what is in the best interest of OUR people and not be so damned concerned about being loved by Europeans--or trying to get along with terrorists! But then again, what do you expect from a liberal?? Must we wait until we wake up someday and find an American city or that of an ally has been vaporized by a nuke manufactured and delivered by one of these terrorists? Most people like myself are not warmongers and I am not advocating any preemptive action on North Korea but when they are clearly an imminent threat to us, we must act so that they will think twice about doing it again. Will may live to regret the consequences of inaction someday soon otherwise if we don' history has shown time and time again.

Not all "Change" is Good -or- Change for the sake of Change??

Like many Americans, I am angry and scared about what is happening to our country right now. This is not just about Barack Obama, although he is a highly unqualified radical and I truly believe that he despises this country in its current form. Our supposed elected representatives are a disgrace as well (see Chris Dodd). Our inadequate public education system has been infiltrated by liberals who have managed in many cases to rewrite our history, stop teaching true constitutional foundations, and have managed to turn out generations of historically ignorant graduates who unfortunately in to many cases truly believe that a centralized federal government is the answer to all their problems. Rugged individualism has been replaced with collectivism and personal responsibility has been replaced with blaming everyone else except yourself when things go wrong.

This blog will be dedicated to commenting on current events, telling the real story, and hopefully doing my small part to get us back to where we should be--a traditional Constitutional republic where the states have the rights and power--not the Federal Government. (that's right you uninformed libs--we live in a republic--NOT a democracy!) Do a search on the Internet, read and study our founding documents and the men who gave us the best country on God's earth (yes, I believe in God). It is a simple and beautiful document that has been twisted and flat out ignored by big-government elites that only want to control more and more of your life because you are just to dumb and ignorant to know what is best for you! They are infinitely arrogant and aim to take total control of as much of your life as possible yet they will NEVER live under the rules by which they will force you to live under.

Yes, we all may be "equal" someday and won't we all look like a nice dull shade of gray as we have our spirits, individuality, money, and freedoms plucked away one by one and become a robotic collective of misery. If you are a Star Trek Next Generation fan, the analogy of what we will become are Borg--"Resistance is futile!" Like hell it is...
