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 August Recess-Time to Bury Obama Care!

So it is the hot, dog days of summer and our distinguished members of Congress are going out on their month long recess. And because of the intense pressure brought on by the rational citizens of this country, they have decided to hold off on final debating and voting on the government takeover of health care, otherwise known as ObamaCare.

My fellow Americans now is the time to defeat the healthcare bill once and for all. How do you that you ask? Get educated and make your voices heard loud and clear. The versions of the bills are being “marked up” in Congress before their recess and may even have committee votes (but not the whole Congress) this week. Therefore the bills will be made public.

So, unlike Congressman John Conyers, a good start would be to READ THE BILL and you don’t need to have 2 lawyers to do it—as he said he needed! Although, as an aside, aren’t Conyers and virtually all other congress people lawyers? Don’t let them spin it—figure it out yourself! Don’t have time to read a 1000 page bill? Then do your due diligence by researching and reading online—especially this blog. I will post regular updates as the details of the bills become available and summarize them here. Alternately, check out sites such –an awesome site for all things conservative and Constitutional.

And as important, find out where your representatives will be holding their town hall meetings and public forums and SHOW UP to question them! Remember, they work for us and what politicians fear more than anything is losing their power and position.

Public sentiment is clearly against this debacle. They will try to ram this down all our collective throats anyways, but they will also know that the consequences will be grave for them if they do so. The talking points are out and the President (the demagogue in chief) is again lying and spinning about what his and the liberals in congress’ true intentions are for this legislation. Quite simply, it is the ultimate power to control and tax your life.

Think about it, if you control healthcare imagine the power to control and exert influence in every aspect of your life. We will complete the ultimate cross over to European socialism and ruin the best healthcare and health technology in the world where rationing and bureaucratic control will be the norm. The government already controls about 50% of the healthcare spending now through Medicare. That program is bankrupt now, there is no “Medicare Trust Fund”. The day of reckoning is coming on that very soon. So why would you possibly want to hand over nearly 1/5th of our entire economy to these thieves?

Not to mention obviously the un-Constitutioanl aspects of this. Many states will resist this and are already discussing their options under the 10th Amendment of the Consitution—and probably other articles and amendments as well as they realize the mandates that will be forced on them through expansion of Medicaid and other programs are unsustainable and will break the states for good.

It will not be pretty if it passes, but know that we are all in this together, and together we will end this reign of terror that Dr. Obama is setting forth on us as he attempts to continue full steam ahead on his class warfare, redistributive policies he so deeply believes in.

The Beer Summit?

To: Sgt. Crowley, Cambridge P.D.

From: Barack Obama, President and Race-Baiter in Chief

Re: Beer Summit

Dear Sgt. Crowley,

I am requesting the honor of your presence at the White House for a beer and a photo opportunity with Professor Crowley, myself, and the my new teleprompter so I can try and dig myself out of yet another public opinion hole I have dug for myself. You see Sgt, I injected myself and commented on something I had no place in doing--especially in light of the fact that I was not there and certainly didn't have all the facts. I just can't help myself and my Chicago style thuggery and "community organizing" skills just come out naturally.

I know Sgt. that you are an experienced and respected officer and in fact you are actually teaching a sensitivity course for the Cambridge PD, but that doesn't matter because I am all to experienced in creating wedges and race issues where there are none. I have learned from the best: Professor Crowley, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and of course, Reverend Wright. I think I am actually the one who acted "stupidly" but don't ever think I will apologize--after all I am Barack Obama and I am above all! Instead, let me provide a "teachable moment" with you to remind you that you are racist and unsophisticated--unlike me of course.

Since you are one of those average, hard working people (yuck!) I am assuming you are a Busch or Bud guy right? I guess I can lower my standards for an hour for the sake of my photo opp. and public poll ratings (which are falling faster than the value of the dollar)!

I look forward to your RSVP, after all, if you refuse I will send Robert Gibbs, MSNBC, and the rest of press corp out to further investigate and destroy you and your family.

Sincerely (not really),
Barack Obama

Response to Congressman Joe Courtney's Health Care Update Email:


In regards to your latest propaganda email on the health care debate, let me just say this plainly: you are a liar and I dont know how you sleep at night.
First of all, your pathetic You Tube video is a total sham. Congress people DO NOT participate in a public health care plan that you want to force everyone else into. Your plan (paid for by me) is run by the private insurance industry that you so easily denegrate to meet your own ends so let's stop that scam talking point now.
Also, are you going to participate in this garbage European socialized plan that you are planning on hoisting onto the rest of us that don't want it?? I think not. And by the way there is a CLEAR majority that does not want or trust the government to create this giant destruction of our health care system--and are telling poeple like you to stay the hell out of our health care.

And I bet you won't tell your constituents that this bill, as written now, will force public funding of abortions on all of us even if we don't want that. How about the fact that your little plan also will cover ILLEGAL immigrants? what part of ILLEGAL don't you understand?? These people need to be thrown out instead of having me and my children pay for their health care and everything else.
And if this is so critical, why don't the major components of it not kick in untill 2012?? Your party and this president are the biggest frauds ever. You are not fooling anyone. Read the editorials, check the polls Congressman and vote for this at your own peril. You will be thrown out of office next year if you vote for this disaster.

We are reading this bill, we know what is in it so stop your lies and talking points. Educated people are not being fooled by this. Then again, only uniformed misguided ignorant people will support you on this disaster because that is after all what the liberals ultimate goals and endeavor is--keep 'em dumbed down and dependent and you can force whatever you want on them and be damned personal liberty/freedom and Consitutionality.

Michael Jackson? Enough Already!!

Submitted to Norwich Bulletin, July 8, 2009.

Michael Jackson was a gifted musical artist and performer and it is tragic that another talented celebrity was taken down so early and so needlessly. But I think that the 24 hour coverage of his death and funeral is totally ridiculous and many of the dark parts of his life are being conveniently minimized in the coverage. Why are we taking our eye off of all the other dangers our country is facing- including cap-and-trade, socialized medicine and other reckless spending that will put the final dagger in our economy. Our president is overseas making deals with the communists in Russia and goes on another apologizing-for-America tour. He is supporting the ousted dictator in Honduras while telling us he doesn’t want to “mettle” in supporting freedom seeking citizens in Iran. North Korea continues to develop their nuclear arsenal and shooting off missiles.
And where was coverage of the soldiers killed and wounded in action overseas defending our interests during all this? Not news worthy enough I guess…
Our hyper obsession with celebrities and celebrity-like figures over real issues is a symptom of why we are losing our country right from under our feet—and no one seems to notice.
