"A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage -- the political paradise of communism."
Sound familiar? The demonizing of Wall Street and our Capitalist system? This fits right in with Obama's agenda since he was a student of Alinsky. To carry it one step further, Obama was quoted in a campaign stop in Colorado last July:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,”
Exactly what is a "Civilian Security Force"? Based on his desires and agenda, the terms Gestapo and KGB come to mind.
Fact: Only 8% of criminals use anything that is classified (even incorrectly) as an "assault
weapon", though less than 1% claimed to use these firearms when committing crimes.
Fact: Criminals are as likely to carry single shot (derringer-type) handguns as they are to carry
Fact: "Assault rifles have never been an issue in law enforcement. I have been on this job for 25
years and I haven't seen a drug dealer carry one. They are not used in crimes, they are not used
against police officers."
Fact: "Since police started keeping statistics, we now know that "assault weapons" are/were used in an underwhelming 0.026 of 1% of crimes in New Jersey. This means that my officers are
more likely to confront an escaped tiger from the local zoo than to confront an assault rifle in the
hands of a drug-crazed killer on the streets."
Thoughts: “Assault weapons” are large and unwieldy. Even misclassified handguns tend to be
bigger than practical for concealed carry. Criminals (who, incidentally, disregard concealed
carry laws) are unlikely to carry "assault weapons."

OK, now consider that information along with something I just learned. You won't see this in the main stream media because they want to keep it as quiet as possible for as long as possible. House Joint Resolution was introduced on January 9, 2009. Guess what it covers? It seeks to repeal the Twenty Second Amendment to the Constitution. That is the Amendment that limits how many times a person can serve as President. Repeal that Amendment, along with ACORN's voter fraud and we could be looking at Obama - President for life. Think Hugo Chavez in Venezula!

Fact: You do not need a license to buy a car. You can buy as many as you want and drive them
all you like on your own property without a license.
Fact: Cars are registered because they are (a) sources of tax revenue, (b) objects of fraud in some transactions, and (c) significant theft targets. Thus we ask the government to track them.
Fact: There is no constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear automobiles, and thus they
are subject to greater regulation than guns.
Fact: There are more guns in the U.S. than cars (228,000,000 guns and 207,754,000
automobiles). Yet you are 31 times more likely to be accidentally killed by a car than a gun,
according to the National Safety Council ... despite cars having been registered and licensed
for almost 100 years.
For those that don't know about history .... Here is a condensed version:
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer, and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter. The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer, and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
Liberals & Conservatives.
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement. Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided. Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass. Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish, but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood, and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule, because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat. Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living. Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Thus ends today's lesson in world history.

A recent government policy change has taken a bite out of the nation's already stressed ammunition supply, leaving arms dealers scrambling to find ammo for private gun owners. Georgia Arms is a company that for the last 15 years has been purchasing fired brass shell casings from the Department of Defense and private government surplus liquidators. The military collects the discarded casings from fired rounds, then sells them through liquidators to companies like Georgia Arms that remanufacture the casings into ammunition for the law enforcement and civilian gun owner communities, but earlier this month, Georgia Arms received a canceled order, informed by its supplier that the government now requires fired brass casings be mutilated, in other words, destroyed to a scrap metal state. The policy change, handed down from the Department of Defense through the Defense Logistics Agency, cuts a supply leg out from underneath ammunition manufacturers.
The policy has compelled Georgia Arms, for example, to cancel all sales of .223 and .308 ammunition, rounds used, respectively, in semi-automatic and deer hunting rifles, until further notice. Sharch Manufacturing, Inc. has announced the same cancellation of its .223 and .308 brass reloading components. "They just reclassified brass to allow destruction of it, based on what?" Georgia Arms owner Larry Haynie asked WND. "We've been 'going green' for the last dozen years, and brass is one of the most recyclable materials out there. A cartridge case can be used over and over again. And now we're going to destroy it based on what? We don't want the civilian public to have it? It's a government injustice."
As WND reported, firearm sales have spiked since the election of a perceived anti-gun president, and Americans stockpiling bullets have produced a stressed ammunition market. The Orlando Sentinel reports months of steady, heavy buying have left gun dealers in
A writer named Owen at the Boots & Sabers blog suspects the policy change is an effort by an anti-gun administration to raise the cost of ammunition. "This policy didn't come out of the blue," writes Owen. "The Commander in Chief is clearly sending a message to gun owners that they should be paying more for ammunition. If he can't do it through regulatory action, he'll do it by forcing ammunition manufacturers to spend more on production."
Thanks again, Steve
On a Saturday afternoon, in Washington, D. C., House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi's aide visited the Cardinal of the Catholic cathedral. He told the Cardinal that Nancy Pelosi would be attending the next day's service, and he asked if the Cardinal would kindly point out Pelosi to the congregation and say a few words that would include calling Pelosi a saint. The Cardinal replied, "No. I don't really like the woman, and there are issues of conflict with the Catholic Church over certain of Pelosi's views." Pelosi's aide then said, "Look, I'll write a check here and now for a donation of $100,000 to your church, if you'll just tell the congregation you see Pelosi as a saint." The Cardinal thought about it and said, "Well, the church can use the money, so I'll work your request into tomorrow's sermon." As Pelosi's aide promised, House Speaker Pelosi appeared for the Sunday service and seated herself prominently at the edge of the main aisle, and, during the sermon, as promised, the Cardinal pointed out that House Speaker Pelosi was present. Then the Cardinal went on to explain to the congregation -- "While Speaker Pelosi's presence is probably an honor to some, she is not my favorite person. Some of her views are contrary to those of the church, and she tends to flip-flop on many other views. Nancy Pelosi is a petty, self-absorbed hypocrite, a thumb sucker, and a nit-wit. Nancy Pelosi is also a serial liar, a cheat, and a thief. Nancy Pelosi is the worst example of a Catholic I have ever personally witnessed. She married for money and is using it to lie to the American people. She also has a reputation for shirking her Representative obligations, both in Washington, and in California . She simply is not to be trusted."
The Cardinal completed his view of Pelosi with, "but, when compared to Senators Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid, and John Kerry, House Speaker Pelosi is a saint.."

I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?" She replied immediately, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her parents beamed. "Wow... what a worthy goal," I told her. "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my sidewalks, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house." She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?'
I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party!"
Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

As I was perusing the Constitution looking for the reference to an ex post facto law, I ran across Article I, Section 8, part of which states that Congress has the power "To provide for calling out the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions". In other words they have the power to impose "Martial Law" and that means the Constitution is suspended and "bingo", we have a dictatorship. Don't think these people aren't capable of that. Think again!! Pay attention and get involved!!!

HYPOCRISY!! HYPOCRISY!! HYPOCRISY!!
Background: Microstamping is a proposed means for imprinting unique serial numbers onto cartridges fired from a gun. Similar to “ballistic fingerprinting,” it allegedly helps police identify what firearm might have been used in a crime. Microstamping uses precision equipment to remove microscopic amounts of metal from the tip of the firing pin.
Myth: Independent testing by forensic technologists shows the technology is reliable.
Fact: Firing pins are readily removable and swappable in most models of handguns, and
inexpensive replacement parts. Criminals who file down serial numbers on the sides of guns
won’t hesitate to file or exchange firing pins.
Fact: 46% of impressions ranked as “unsatisfactory” (i.e., illegible) after only ten rounds.
Myth: Filing the firing pin will make the gun inoperable.
Fact: Firing pins are designed to be pushed deeply into the primer (igniter) of the round. The
depth of the engraving (approximately 0.005 inch) is vastly smaller than the tolerance of the
firing pins drive depth.
Fact: In a test, the engravings were removed using a 50-year-old knife sharpening stone in less
than a minute. The firearm still operated correctly after the filing.
Fact: Even if a criminal does not file down the firing pin, they might retrieve spent cartridges.
If they use a revolver, the cartridges stay with the firearm and are rarely recovered by police.
Myth: The cost per firearm will be cheap.
Fact: The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the representative for firearm manufactures,
estimates the cost will be upwards of $150 per firearm, more than tripling the price of self protection and making it unaffordable for low-income people. The Brady Campaign dispute
those with firearm manufacturing experience claiming micro-stamping would cost only 50¢.
Myth: The numbers will let police find the gun’s owner.
Fact: Most crime guns are stolen property, which makes finding the original owner worthless.

I'll get to that later. When my sister and I were growing up, we occasionally got sick like all kids did and still do. Mom would bring out the mercury thermometer and take our temperature. On occasion she would drop it in the sink and it would break. My sister and I loved when that happened. We got to play with the little balls of mercury sliding around in the sink. We had a lot of fun doing that, in fact I would even coat copper pennies with it and carry them around with me making believe they were dimes. Well, my sister and I, and a lot of other kids are still around and in good health, despite doing this on occasion. I had a part time job on a school bus a few years ago, and one day we arrived at Pomperaug High School to pick up our kids. The school was locked down. The police, fire department, and DEP personnel were there in their hazmat suits. It seems some kid had brought some mercury to school, and spilled it in the cafeteria. You would have thought the world was coming to an end! Everyone in the cafeteria had to be decontaminated by DEP and the school had to decontaminated. Why? I know that long term exposure to mercury can be hazardous, but we're talking long term (emphasis on long), continual exposure, and it usually has to be ingested. Not a one time exposure for a short amount of time. This type of stuff is ridiculous, and expensive.
I watch the evening news every night, and it seems that at least 2-3 times a week they talk about a recall of toys which are decorated with paint that has a high lead content. Once again, how many of you played with toys back in the '50's, '60's, & '70's that probably were loaded with lead based paints. How many of you are suffering from symptoms of lead poisoning? Once again the problem is long term exposure. Prevent long term exposure? Absolutely, but this over the top baloney is ridiculous.
Today, we have to do everything possible to keep lead and mercury out of the environment, which brings me to Cinnabar and Galena, They are respectively Mercury Sulfide and Lead Sulfide. They are the major ores that mercury and lead are derived from. So if we put them back into the environment we are polluting? I'd say we're putting them back where they came from. That's known as recycling, which is what we are supposed to be doing today.

Obama's Victory -- A British view
An editorial from the London Daily Mail
A victory for the hysterical Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole over history, rabble-raising over reality.
A victory for Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community in the world. Victory for Streisand, Spielberg, Soros and Sarandon. Victory for those who prefer welfare to will and interference to independence. For those who settle for group think and herd mentality rather than those who fight for individual initiative and the right to be out of step with meager political fashion.
Victory for a man who is no friend of freedom. He and his people have already stated that media has to be controlled so as to be balanced, without realizing the extraordinary irony within that statement. Like most liberal zealots, the Obama worshippers constantly speak of Fox and Limbaugh, when the vast bulk of television stations and newspapers are drastically liberal and anti-conservative. Senior Democrat Chuck Schumer said that just as pornography should be censored, so should talk radio. In other words, one of the few free and open means of popular expression may well be cornered and beaten by bullies who even in triumph cannot tolerate any criticism and opposition. A victory for those who believe the state is better qualified to raise children than the family, for those who prefer teachers' unions to teaching and for those who are naively convinced that if the West is sufficiently weak towards its enemies, war and terror will dissolve as quickly as the tears on the face of a leftist celebrity. A victory for social democracy even after most of Europe has come to the painful conclusion that social democracy leads to mediocrity, failure, unemployment, inflation, higher taxes and economic stagnation. A victory for intrusive lawyers, banal sentimentalists, social extremists and urban snobs.
Fact: In 1994, before the Federal "assault weapons ban", you were eleven (11) times more
likely to be beaten to death than to be killed by an “assault weapon”. In the first year since the
ban was lifted, murders declined 3.6%, and violent crime 1.7%.
Fact: Nationally, “assault weapons” were used in 1.4% of crimes involving firearms and 0.25%
of all violent crime before the enactment of any national or state “assault weapons” ban. In
many major urban areas (San Antonio, Mobile, Nashville, etc.) and some entire states (Maryland,
New Jersey, etc.) the rate is less than 0.1%
Fact: Even weapons misclassified as “assault weapons” (common in the former Federal and
California "assault weapons" confiscations) are used in less than 1% of all homicides.
Fact: Police reports show that “assault weapons” are a non-problem:
• Los Angeles: In 1998, of 538 documented gun incidents, only one (0.2%) involved
an "assault weapon".
• San Francisco: In 1998, only 2.2% of confiscated weapons were "assault weapons".
• San Diego: Between 1988 and 1990, only 0.3% of confiscated weapons were "assault
• “I surveyed the firearms used in violent crimes...assault-type firearms were the least
of our worries.”
For the rest of the nation:
• Between 1980 and 1994, only 2% of confiscated guns were "assault weapons".
• Just under 2% of criminals that commit violent crimes used “assault weapons”.

CCRKBA BLASTS DEM DOUBLE STANDARD: DISTRICT VOTING RIGHTS V. GUN RIGHTS
BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today accused Congressional Democrats of “world-class hypocrisy” for pulling a voting rights bill for Washington, D.C. residents because Senate Republicans added an amendment that would strengthen their gun rights, as affirmed in the June 2008 Heller ruling by the Supreme Court.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said the bill – which would give the District an official vote in the House of Representatives, most likely a Democrat – would not be considered this week because of the Republican amendment. That amendment would repeal a ban on certain firearms in the District, even though last year’s high court ruling said outright bans of whole classes of firearms are unconstitutional. CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, co-author of "These Dogs Don’t Hunt": The Democrats’ War on Guns, said House Democrats “are acting predictably, in a manner that belies everything they’ve said for the past decade about supporting gun rights.”
“Once again,” he said, “Democrats are revealing themselves as the party of restrictive gun control. If the citizens of
The bill would add a congressional seat in
“Democrats argue that the right to representation is not related to the right to keep and bear arms,” Gottlieb said, “but that’s nonsense. This country was born because our founders were being taxed without representation, and because British troops tried to disarm the citizens. Those issues are just as equal today as they were 230 years ago, and Democrats on Capitol Hill need to understand that.”
our country now.
A song from 1929 - but is very applicable today - in the
U.S.A., Canada, as well as Britain!
It is something to hear from way back then.
Let's make it the number ONE hit of 2009!!!!
Wasn't there a book written once that was called "How to Win Friends and Influence People". Perhaps Prime Minister Brown should have gotten President Obama a copy of that as a gift.

I am sorry to inform you that I will not be able to pay taxes owed April 15, but all is not lost.
I have paid these taxes: accounts receivable tax, building permit tax, CDL tax, cigarette tax, corporate income tax, dog license tax, federal income tax, unemployment tax, gasoline tax, hunting license tax, fishing license tax, waterfowl stamp tax, inheritance tax, inventory tax, liquor tax, luxury tax, Medicare tax, city, school and county property tax (up 33 percent last 4 years), real estate tax, social security tax, road usage tax, toll road tax, state and city sales tax, recreational vehicle tax, state franchise tax, state unemployment tax, telephone federal excise tax, telephone federal state and local surcharge tax, telephone minimum usage surcharge tax, telephone state and local tax, utility tax, vehicle license registration tax, capitol gains tax, lease severance tax, oil and gas assessment tax, Colorado property tax, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma and New Mexico sales tax, and many more that I can't recall but I have run out of space and money.
When you do not receive my check April 15, just know that it is an honest mistake. Please treat me the same way you treated Congressmen Charles Wrangel, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and ex-Congressman Tom Daschle and, of course, your boss Timothy Geithner. No penalties and no interest.
P.S. I will make at least a partial payment as soon as I get my stimulus check.
Guess you heard that 68% of the youth vote went to Obama. My granddaughter called this morning to tell me she was one of them I replied with this email:
The election of Obama comes down to this. Your grandmother and I, your mother, and other productive, wage-earning tax payers will have their taxes increased and that means less income left over. Less income means we will have to cut back on basic purchases, gifts and handouts. That includes firing the Hispanic lady who cleans our house twice a month. She just lost her job. We can't afford her anymore. What is the economic effect of Obama's election on you personally? Over the years, your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in food, housing, cash, clothing, gifts, etc. By your vote, you have chosen another family over ours for help. So in the future, if you need assistance with your rent, money for gas, tires for your car, someone to bring you lunch, etc. ... call 202-456-1111 . That's the telephone number for the Office of the President of the United States. I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to send a check from his personal or business accounts, as we have, or leave cash in an envelope taped to his front door for you, as we have.
It's like this.
Those who vote for the President of the United States should consider what the impact of an election will be on the nation as a whole and not just be concerned with what they can get for themselves (welfare, stimulus checks, etc.). What Obama voters don't seem to realize is that the government's money comes from taxes collected from tax paying families. Raising taxes on productive people means they will have less money to spend on their families.
Congratulations on your choice. For future reference, you might attempt to add up all you've received from us, your mom, Mike's parents, and others, and compare it to what you expect to get over the next four years from Mr. Obama.
To congratulate Mr. Obama, and to make sure you're on the list for handouts, write to:
The White House

Washington , DC 20500
Love you Susan, but call the number listed above when you need help,

"If Barack Obama and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi took three buckets of water out of a lake, ran to the other side of the lake, and poured those three buckets into the lake. Do you really believe there's more water in the lake? That's their spending plan: Take money out of the productive economy, walk around, and hand it to the politically connected - 800 billion times."

I guess this a good time for a quiz on Corporations.
Now I want everybody out there to comment on this post about how much better their own life is now that we "got them".
One question. When do we get to Senator Chris Dodd?
1. Create a new file folder on your computer desktop.
2. Name it 'Barack Obama'.
3. Send it to the Recycle Bin.
4. Empty the Recycle Bin.
5. You will see the message: 'Do you really want to get rid of 'Barack Obama?'
6. Click 'Yes.'
Feel better now?
Good! - Tomorrow we'll do a Nancy Pelosi file.

The entire speech can be heard at:
Remember in grammar school, if somebody did something wrong, and you “told” on them, all the other kids would start chanting “tattletale”, “tattletale”, “tattletale”. Well, It appears to have come to that in California.
Well, now government is getting involved. They are trying to turn Friend against friend, and neighbor against neighbor. I guess everyone out here can now belong to the "Water Police"
Below is the first few paragraphs of a story in the San Diego Union Tribune, just another of the many “Leftie” papers, with an agenda, from around the country.
"Door tags let residents play water cops
Countywide project seeks to reduce wasteful habits
2:00 a.m. February 28, 2009
You know these neighbors. They're the ones with the poorly calibrated sprinkler systems that send biblical torrents into the gutter during the hottest part of the day. You've always wanted to do something to turn the tide but don't know how to approach the problem tactfully. Local water officials think they've come up with a solution. It's a bright yellow door hanger that doubles as San Diego County's new scarlet letter, and it's coming your way starting tomorrow.
“Dear neighbor,” the hanger reads. “Our region is facing a serious water shortage. This makes eliminating water waste more important than ever. While passing your home, I noticed the following:” Five check boxes allow you to identify a variety of offenses, including sprinklers that run every day (instead of two or three times a week), broken nozzles that leak and irrigation systems that turn on even when it's raining. Leaders of the San Diego County Water Authority hope that residents will act as self-appointed hydro-cops and hang 1.75 million of these tags on the doors of water-hogging neighbors. It's the agency's latest strategy for promoting conservation as the statewide drought deepens. People can leave the hangers anonymously or sign their names on them..............................................."
You can read the entire article at:
Upon this seizure, he was quoted as saying " This government is here to protect the people, not the bourgeoisie or the rich". I seem to remember some other recently elected world leader making a very similar quote. Could it happen here?? I sure hope not, but with the Left wing media covering for Obama, a far left Congress in power, and Liberal judges legislating from the bench, you have to wonder.
