St. Louis Tea Party Photos.....



The St. Louis Tea Party was a Success! We had at least 800 Patriots and as many as 1000!
I am Honored to have taken part in such a Demonstration of Unity among those that know what this Great Nation was founded upon........Liberty.


Here are some Photos from the St. Louis Tea Party:





















The Last Photo was taken by Jim Durbin. I felt it was a Photo that says it all without saying a word......One Person Sharing Tea with another ..........Strangers coming together to stand up for what they believe is Right......in Peaceful Protest.
Besides..........I'm the one Holding the Tin.......

The Night Before the Tea Party

I will be attending the St. Louis Tea party Tomorrow.

Tonight I bought 300 tea bags to dump into the river. My Wife and Daughter helped me to rip them all open and dump them into a tin.

While we were doing this, my Daughter asked me," Why are you going to dump Tea in the River..? "

I was taken aback by the question since this is the same question I have been asking myself...

I was quiet for a minute and replied," Because I love You, Mommy and this Country and I want to make sure that you and your Children enjoy the same Country that values Freedom and Liberty that my Parents entrusted to me....."

I said, "I know you may not know what Freedom is"......and she stopped me...

She sat up a little taller looked me straight in the eye and said, "I know what Freedom is Daddy......That is what the Soldiers are defending ...My Freedom...." Then she looked a little confused and asked, "Are you a Soldier ?"

"No Honey not like them, but it is my job to defend the Constitution here at home, so when they come back, they get to enjoy what they were fighting for.......I am an American Citizen Like you Honey and it's my turn, like it was for Grandpa and Grandma before me, to make sure that people do not Destroy the Freedom and Liberty for you...and those after you."

She Looked at me for a Second, Blinked her Big brown eyes, smiled and said,
"Can I go? You Might Need Help....."


"Soon Honey," I said with a Smile, "It will be Your Turn....."

I hope to have pictures and Video of the Event that i took.....So check back this weekend I will hopfully have them up...

A Call for States to Secede if Law Passes for District of Columbia

There is Bill in Congress that will allow the District of Columbia the Right to have voting Representatives in Congress. The Problem with this is that it is Unconstitutional. States are allowed Representatives in the House and Senate. The District of Columbia is not a State.

Article 1 Sections 2 and 3 of the Constitution explains how Representatives and Senators are to be chosen. It clearly says that they must be Chosen from States in the Union.

But under AMENDMENT XXIII of the Constitution the District is allowed electors:

Passed by Congress June 16, 1960. Ratified March 29, 1961.
Section 1.The District constituting the seat of Government of the United States shall appoint in such manner as Congress may direct:

A number of electors of President and Vice President equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives in Congress to which the District would be entitled if it were a State, but in no event more than the least populous State; they shall be in addition to those appointed by the States, but they shall be considered, for the purposes of the election of President and Vice President, to be electors appointed by a State; and they shall meet in the District and perform such duties as provided by the twelfth article of amendment.
Section 2.The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

But even here in this Amendment it clearly states that since it is not a State it is not allowed Voting Representatives in Congress.

Because of this possible law many have been calling their State Representatives to encourage Secession from the Union if it Passes.

These Calls are Based off the Fact that the Constitution is a Legal Contract between the States, Federal Gov and the People. If one party breaches the Contract it then becomes Null and Void....which would allow the Secession of States from the Union.

This attitude of those in Washington just underlines the fact that they are not only ignorant of the Founding Documents to which they have sworn to uphold and defend. But how truly Disconnected they are from the Public Sentiment.

All too often Polls tend to be the leading factor in the Decisions of Politicians.....

All too often Polls are inaccurate.....

Lets hope Our Children will be able to enjoy the Same Protections of Individual Rights and Limited Government that the Constitution Guarantees.

More Socialism = No Economic Recovery

I was going to write Part 2 on my opinion of the President's Speech, but I realized that any 2 year old could read it and understand what it means.....Besides Obama's Plan for Socialized Medicine has been let out of the bag today.....and that got me thinking.

How on God's Green Earth..like the Green comment...lol

How are we going to spend TRILLIONS of dollars, amounts Greater than ANY PERSON ON EARTH has ever spent in the History of Time........and expect to have an economic recovery????

Not Possible.....Inflation alone will Kill us....

The only thing that we are looking at in the Future if we continue on this path to Communism is NOT a recovery next year, or even 5 years after...... We will NOT RECOVER...EVER without a Violent Revolution.

That is why it is so important that we act NOW. We still have Peaceful options, protest, civil disobedience, writing our Reps....Standing outside their office in the hundreds of thousands.....

But if we Do Not get Active. IF we DO NOT respond and demand accountability NOW.......We will eventually be left with only one option......No One wants That Option....No One...

So Read the Constitution......Learn it.... Spread the Word, Go To these Tea Party Rallies..... BECOME an ACTIVE PATRIOT! For the Sake of Your Children's, Children......We are the LAST bastion of Liberty.....

Don't let it become just another page in the History Books.....

The Time is Now!

This is a Historical Moment.....the dissatisfaction of a large number of the populace has again reached critical mass. Our frustrations at the continued destruction of our Founding Principles at the hands of those sworn to emulate and protect them is such that we feel we must act.

We are at a Crossroads.......We are not the First at such an impasse..History has shown others have reached similar times when they must decide to either sit quietly by and live their lives thinking that they can't make a difference..........or to Stand up for what they know is right.

This ladies and gentlemen is not the Beginning .....This is just Our Time.....Our Chance....to carry The Banner for this Fight that has been carried by many through the History of this Great Nation. For Too long we have allowed people to forget..allowed people to disseminate untruthful propaganda about what this country was founded upon....No More!

The Time For Peaceful Civil Disobedience is Now!

Want to Join a Tea Party?

Tea Parties around the country have sprung up in answer to the call from Rick Santelli. There is a Tea Party being organized in Chicago at noon this Friday.

Other Cities have followed suit, from St. Louis to Denver people have had enough of Washington Politicians and their continued destruction of Freedom and Liberty. The Organizers are asked to wear Black in reference of the death of the Free-Market-System. See You There!

To see if a city near you is having one Go To :

"Tea Party" in Binghamton New York

It looks like the latest Tea Party Phenomena did not begin with the Chicago Stock Market Rant, but in Binghamton New York.

The Governor wanted to instigate an "Obesity" tax on non diet Soda claiming it was to fight the Fat. But a number of People in Binghamton said NO MORE and dumped cans of soda and water filled soda bottle into the Susquehanna River.

According to a Quinnipiac University Polling Institute over 53% of New Yorkers favor the cutting of services to the raising of taxes.

Some have pointed out that the excess sugar is what helps to contribute to the fat around the middle so why not tax Sugar? But then again dumping bags of Sugar in the River might upset the Environmentalists since the Sugar Might cause an increase of Diabetes in the Fish. It's hard to give an insulin Shot to a slimy, scaly patient....lol

This trend is going to increase across the country. There will be an urgent call to return to the Principles of the Founding Fathers and a Demand for Peaceful Civil Disobedience.

The only advice I can give to our Great New York Patriots is next time, don't forget to Dress Like Indians......

Using A Crisis to Gain More Power

If I hear one more Politician say "This is the worst it's ever been! We need to do something!" I am going to be sick.. This is NOT the worst it's ever been, not by a long shot...

The Unemployment Rate as of January is 7.60%. There are those that want you to think this is as bad as it's been...since the Great Depression. Don't believe it....

In June of 92' the Unemployment rate was 7.80%. In March of 84' the Unemployment rate was 7.80%, In December of 82' it was 10.80% and in October of 81' it was 7.90%. In July of 80' it was 7.80% In July, August, November and December of 76' it was 7.80%. In May of 75' it was 9.0%. In October of 49' it was 7.9% and in 1932 Unemployment was at a whopping 23.6%! FDR's Big Government Programs did not help the economy or bring us out of the 10 year long Depression. WWII did.....

So When our Great President says that things haven't been this bad since the Great Depression, and we know they are not, that his big Spending Bills will fix the Recession, and we know they won't.....then ask yourself, why would he lie? The answer is as old as Man himself...Power.

It is easier to make people do things that they wouldn't normally do unless they are in a Crisis and believe that it's life or death if they don't. Hence the sentence, "If we don't do something it is going to get worse." Sounds like a Bad Pickup Line in a Bar......

The Socialists are looking to blame someone for this to Gain Power, and according to Stalin the easiest way to gain more power is to Blame the Rich and increase People's Dependency on Government. It will decrease personal Liberty and destroy those that are rocking the boat...... Since those that are wealthy and agree with the Administration will not lose their Riches...just those that disagree while suppressing the middle class...or destroying it.....

This is why there is an undercurrent of Fear in this Nation. The threat of the Fairness Doctrine to limit Free speech not only on the airwaves but the Internet. The New Bills to restrict the Right to own a Firearm. The Bills that will create Bigger Government through the Creation of New Departments for "oversight" for the Bailouts or the Creation of the Department of Peace. The talk about Raising Taxes to make up for the Deficit...not the Debt the Deficit. The President is talking about raising taxes to cover half of the DEFICIT, Not National Debt. So instead of cutting programs to make up the lack of funds, he wants to increase your burden, the responsible Majority. These are all Fascist in nature and People are coming to that realization.

There is No Big secret on how to make the Recession go away, actually it's a pretty simple concept, just hard to execute. The Economy is based on perception(or emotion), if you think it's bad and stop spending then the economy gets worse. If we all think it's great and spend money like Drunken sailors, it gets better. That is why Consumer Confidence index is so important.

The Government believes that they can increase Consumer Confidence by more taxes, bigger Government and Giant Government Spending Bills. Not gonna work.... Government spending will never stimulate the economy for the long term. But Government Spending done during a World War where things produced are then destroyed and the population is thinned so that Demand stays high and Jobs are Created through the lack of a workforce can stimulate it while the war lasts. But only the market driven by the needs of the Consumers, will be successful long term.

But that is not their Goal.

Their Goal is to push on the Populace an Ideology of Unlimited Federal Government Power while Destroying Individual Liberties. They can't have you think for yourself, you might Destroy the environment with your Breathing, or you might Not Give your entire paycheck to the person sitting on their butt playing PlayStation all day.

But if you figure out you do not need Government Help, or you don't Believe it's as bad as they say it is.....That is when they say, "Other Countries are doing Stimulus, so then we have too, it's only Fair." My dad used to say..if your friend jumped off a Bridge........

So why has no one Stood Up and said to these idiots that WE are the United States of America. We Stand for Freedom, Liberty and Limited Government. We are Unique in the World and Must pay the Price for our Freedoms......even if that means we suffer for awhile while the economy heals itself. Cowards I guess....

The only Alternative, and the one we are headed for, is a Government induced state of suffering without end. What person in their right mind wants that? Right minds...I forgot who I was talking about.....

Besides.....My Hips are in No Shape to Goose Step.....

Rich Vs Poor

The interest in attending a Chicago Tea Party has grown to enormous size. The Rant from the Floor of the Chicago Stock exchange has become an instant Classic for those that love Freedom and Liberty. As History shows when a movement begins there are always those that disagree and the Movement that has spurned from this Rant is no different. Too bad the argument against this Rant and the Tea Party isn't more intelligent.

The argument against this rant is as old as Dirt the haves against the have nots. Some say why listen to the Rant? Rick Santelli has a House, a big one so he doesn't care about those losing their home. It's a Play straight out of the Communist Manifesto....... Bourgeois vs. Proletarians or Rich vs. Poor.

This is the argument of the ignorant, the cry of the uneducated.

The Best reasoning to countermand this ill conceived concept is a quote from the same man that Obama has been compared to:

"Property is the fruit of labor...property is desirable...is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built." -Abraham Lincoln


Ironic that the same Man our President has been compared too, holds the complete opposite point of view.

Mr. Santelli's rant was about Freedom and Liberty. The Idea that all we are allowed from the Government is the Protection of our Rights, not the creation of new ones at the whim of the President. With every creation of a New Government power the Rights of the individual are destroyed.

We are NOT Guaranteed a Home, or Job, or anything other than Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Those will be the preferred perceived opponents in this Fight .....Rich vs. Poor, the Haves vs. the Have Nots.

But in reality it will be those that Fight for Liberty and those that Wish to destroy it........

Which side are you ?

The Coming Revolution......

Over the last several months there has been an undercurrent in this country of Discontent. The Average Citizen is beginning to see that the Politicians in Washington are not there Representing Us, they are Representing themselves.

As people wake up to this fact they get angry. Rightly So..... But they do not know where to direct or channel that emotion. History has shown a Discontented Citizenry with no direction to dissipate their concerns can quickly form into an unruly mob, or worse.

The number of people that are disenfranchised has grown to the point of spilling out onto the airwaves. Here in St. Louis last week an afternoon talk show host talked about how he felt adversarial to the Government. The Radio Station received record amounts of calls and e-mail supporting the Talk Show Host's rant. This show was not a Political Show, it was a Comedy show. But the Anger in the Host at the Governments irresponsible behavior was so much that he felt he needed to vent. Yesterday on CNBC a reporter at the Chicago Stock Exchange Floor was so angered by the Government's plan to bailout more Failure he went so far as to call for a Tea Party in the Great Lakes. He was resoundingly applauded and supported by the Stock Traders around him. He has it right when he said that the Founders would be roiling in their Graves if they could see what we are doing to this Country.

This Trend of Citizens Speaking their Mind in Public and on the Airwaves is going to increase in number and in tone. Do not be surprised if in the near future we see people in the Public Squares calling for Revolution, or people on Television talking about the Ideas of Freedom and liberty.

There is a Revolution Coming, but in what form is the Question.

A Revolution can take several forms, but in this country I can only see two types.

The First, and the most preferred, is a Political Revolution. The People organize to recall and remove those that are not doing the will of the people. Then they should be replaced by a Third Party, since it appears the two main Political Parties are not much different in practice after they attain power. A third and even Forth Party Revolution would not only enhance our Government, but possibly bring the power back to the People. So long as the People keep paying attention to those in Washington.

The Second Revolution, and the one I hope that my Children's, Children Never see is a Violent Revolution. There are still so many options that we have Before we even consider a Second Civil War. The Horrors of War and the Intensity of a Civil War is something I would not Wish on my worst enemy. Brother against Brother, Father against Son, Mother Against Daughter, Neighbor against Neighbor.....the Rapes, Murder, Lynching and Mob Rule is not where we want to Go......There are still other Choices.

I hope a Leader appears with Common Sense that will help channel this discontent in a positive manner. Or that Washington defuses the situation by actually paying attention to the people whom they are supposed to represent.

If neither of these two things take place, I fear for the Peace in this Nation. I fear a second Civil War.........

If only Those in Washington Feared the same thing.........

Department of Peace........Um what?

Ok.....sit down. No really...after reading this you may faint, or fall down laughing and I don't want to be responsible for you getting hurt...so sit.

I have just discovered a Bill that is going through the House for the creation of the Department of Peace. Oh you read right, the DEPARTMENT OF PEACE. wow...

So what would the job be for the Department of Peace? Well here it is:

c) Mission- The Department shall

(1) hold the cultivation of peace as a strategic national policy objective;

(2) reduce and prevent violence in the United States and internationally through peacebuilding and effective nonviolent conflict resolution

(3) strengthen nonmilitary means of peacemaking

(4) work to create peace, prevent violence, prevent armed conflict, use field-tested programs, and promote best practices in nonviolent dispute resolution

(5) take a proactive, strategic approach in the development of policies that promote national and international conflict prevention, nonviolent intervention, mediation, peaceful resolution of conflict, and structured mediation of conflict

(6) address matters both domestic and international in scope

(7) provide an institutional platform for the growing wealth of expertise in peacebuilding to dramatically reduce the national and global epidemic of violence

(8) support local communities in finding, funding, replicating, and expanding programs to reduce and prevent violence

(9) invest in non-governmental organizations that have implemented successful initiatives to reduce and prevent violence, both internationally and domestically

(10) work with other government agencies to apply and practice the science of peacebuilding in their respective fields of responsibility.



Isn't this the Job of the Congress, President and the Office of Secretary of State??? The SCIENCE OF PEACEMAKING....? I missed that Class in School.....lol

OHH but it gets Better. Think this is Just for Foreign Wars.....Um No...The Department of Peace would have Domestic Powers. Here they are:

(b) Domestic Responsibilities- The Secretary shall--

(1) develop policies that address domestic violence, including spousal abuse, child abuse, and mistreatment of the elderly

(2) create new policies and programs and expand existing policies and programs that effectively reduce drug and alcohol abuse

(3) develop new policies and programs and expand existing policies and programs that effectively address crime, punishment, and rehabilitation, including--

(A) working to reduce prison recidivism rates

(B) supporting the implementation of nonviolent conflict resolution education and training for victims, perpetrators, and those who work with them; and

(C) supporting effective police and community relations

(4) analyze existing policies, employ successful, field-tested programs, and develop new approaches for dealing with the tools of violence, including handguns, especially among youth

(5) analyze existing policies and develop new policies to address violence against animals

(6) develop new and expand current effective programs that relate to the societal challenges of school violence, gangs, racial or ethnic violence, violence against gays and lesbians, and police-community relations disputes

(7) make policy recommendations to the Attorney General regarding civil rights and labor law

(8) assist in the establishment and funding of community-based violence prevention programs, including violence prevention counseling and peer mediation in schools and unarmed civilian peacekeeping at a local level

(9) counsel and advocate on behalf of women victimized by violence

(10) provide for public education programs and counseling strategies concerning hate crimes

(11) promote racial, religious, and ethnic tolerance; and

(12) finance local community initiatives that can draw on neighborhood resources to create peace projects that facilitate the development of conflict resolution at a national level and thereby inform and inspire national policy


Wow. Did you read the Handgun reference. Nice Huh? Throw that in there as if no one would notice. I guess we would be getting a knock on the Door from the heavily armed Department of Peace police so that they can take your instrument of Violence.....again..wow.

Who is the Genius behind this little Gem?

Rep. Dennis Kucinich [D, OH-10]

Surprised? Didn't think so......But he is not alone this Bill was Co-Sponsored by 64 other Representatives in the House. All of them Democrats...Surprise, Surprise.

So I guess along with all of the other useless and tyrannical big Government Bills introduced by Democrats since the election, this is just another link in their chain of Oppression.

Remember the motto of the Department of Peace. Do it Our way for Peace......Our we'll get our Heavily Armed Police Force to make You.......lol



To read the whole Bill Go To:

Hurry!! It's an Emergency!! The World is Coming to an End...Unless it's the Weekend..

Why did our beloved President Obama tell us all on National Television that this Emergency "Stimulus" Bill is soo important that it needs to be done quick and with no opposition not sign it for 4 days????

He got his Bill on Friday after the Democrats in Congress Rushed to get it done.
Did he sign the much needed "Emergency" Legislation??

No....

Did he sign it on Saturday? No..

Sunday?...Um.No..

Monday then..had to be....Still No...

He signed it on Tuesday...TUESDAY...at a Big Campaign Style event in.............. Washington?.....

No Denver.. He signed it in DENVER....

Gee, Lets just use more taxpayers money and sign it 1493 Miles away from where it was created. I guess that the Greenhouse Gasses that were created by Air Force One for that Trip were acceptable....since he was really going there to inspect a Wind Farm...Twit.

The Republicans asked the Democrats for more time so that the Public could read the whole Bill BEFORE it was passed. But it was an EMERGENCY said Obama....IT WAS LIFE OR DEATH he said....Twit.

According to Obama things are only an Emergency if it's not during the week and then only after Monday.

So lets just hope that if we get attacked again...it's on Tuesday..so he will have 3 days to act......before his 4 day weekend.

Capitalism is Not On Trial

If you listen to the News and read some Articles on the Internet, you are being led to believe that Capitalism has failed. That the Greed of the Corporate CEO's is what has brought us to this Great Recession.

You are being Misled......

Capitalism is not on trial here.........The lack of Morality is....

Capitalism works. It is a system that is situated to create the best products and businesses based on demand and responsible ownership. Things that are poorly made or poorly run Fail and the better run business and better quality products succeed. If it is not interfered with there is not a Better System in the World.

The Socialists in the World would love nothing better than to convince everyone that the Greed of Capitalism created this mess so therefore the system failed.

In a way they are right, Greed did create this mess, but it was not only in the Capitalistic system, it was also the Greed of the Politicians. It was a Combination of Politicians wanting to get reelected through Government forced Mortgages using an Ideology that is incompatible with Capitalism and the Supply Structure run by Greedy individuals in the Market.

In Capitalism demand dictates production and the Natural selection of Failure and Success are in motion. But when an Ideology or Person interferes with this process then an Artificial Market bubble is created by making unnatural Demand in the Market. It sets up a recipe for disaster since a Bubble must eventually pop. But unlike smaller "bubbles" in the market an artificial one builds a supply base based on the Bubble but the base is unnatural. So when the Bubble pops the supply structure that was created and employed so many fails and collapses. Which in turn eventually begins to affect things outside the Artificial Market Bubble. In smaller Market created bubbles the Supply structure can usually be absorbed somewhere in the market so that the collapse limits itself mostly to those in the Bubble itself.


If we begin again to teach right and wrong at home, in schools and in the Public Square Greed will be recognized for what it is and dealt with. If it's boycotting a store for it's business practices or electing a Politician that represents what is Good for the Nation that is our responsibility.
If we leave Capitalism Alone when it comes to supply and demand along with a Reinstated sense of Morality this type of Recession will not happen to this magnitude.


It is NOT Capitalism on Trial here.....it is Our Lack of Diligence and Sense of Morality.

The Price of Freedom and Liberty

Most people today are too busy with their lives, too worried trying to live to know the true Price of Freedom and Liberty.

Some would say that the Price of Freedom is the Bodies of the Patriots that have fought and given the ultimate sacrifice. I would say that they died Protecting the Freedom and paid the Price for it's continuance. May God Bless them for it........But the Form of Freedom, the Definition of Liberty is controlled by others.......it is controlled by the Constitution and Protected By US.

But soon that Control, that Power To Protect Our Liberty, Our Freedom is being given to someone or something else that wishes to change the Definition of our Founding Principles....

There is a Great Ignorance in this Nation about it's Founding, a Great lack of interest in it's Founders.

There is a concerted attempt at re-writing of History that is occurring but yet no one seems to care.....or understand. So I shall take it upon myself to explain.

To Understand the Price of something you must first understand what you are buying, what you are receiving in return for payment. Let's start with a Definition...for those tech minded out there. According to Webster online:

Freedom : the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action.

Liberty: the power of choice; the State of being Free.

The Founders believed that these were given to us by Nature's Creator. In so doing they were trying to explain that No Peron, No Government on earth can take away your Freedom or Liberty. That no matter what someone tried to do to remove your Rights you have the right to Resist their attempts. One can not take away, what one did not rightly give.

What Price would you pay for Freedom and Liberty?

Am I suggesting that you give your life, in a way..... yes.

I am asking that you live your life the way you see fit. ....That you take your Freedom and exercise your Liberty to pursue Your Happiness. But in so Doing, to rely upon yourself, unless another Free Person willingly gives you assistance. Of course there will be some laws, but just enough to Protect Life, Liberty and your Pursuit of Happiness. Everything Guaranteed under the Constitution. Live Free and at Liberty......Doesn't sound too bad Eh? Well reading it and living it are two different things.

Here is the True Price that many, who are too self absorbed, will refuse to pay.

The removal of all Social Programs, Welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the Idea of Socialized Medicine...ALL Social Programs. The slimming down of the Government's Power and size. The Idea that Government is the answer must be removed from our Minds. Self- Reliance must again be held High as an Example to attain......Not Self-Victimization....

The Constitution and the Founders including James Madison have stated that Charity is up to the Individual to give Freely, not for the Government to institute. If they had meant for the Government to have these Social Programs they would not have written the Founding Documents as they did. They were written in order to restrict Government and Guarantee Individual Rights. They Understood this, Most people today do Not.


Would you rather live 50 years Free and at Liberty or 100 years in Health, Comfort and a Police State where everything is dictated to you?

We are appearing to go Full circle, from a Monarchy to Republic back again to a Monarchy and/or Dictatorship.

There are plans afoot to create a One party Rule by giving Citizenship to those that break the law. By giving Financial assistance from the Government to guarantee Success and Happiness. These attempts are disguised with the cloak of Charity and the face of Concern.
But hidden beneath the facade is the real intention, the hideous goal of ultimate and unrestricted power. Once there is a Party that has all the Power, Fascism and Tyranny is not far behind, then Dictatorship and Slavery.

Many are in denial, they reassure themselves by saying it won't happen here...it won't happen to me. They feel that they are entitled to these "perks" from the Government....... But they are selfish Fools.

History has proven that a Government big enough to give you everything is powerful enough to take it all away. Nothing is Free......

Through our Selfishness we are taking away the Freedoms of our Children's, Children's, Children...we are selling them into slavery for the sake of our own Health, Peace of Mind and Comfort.

Oh! How Future Generations will Damn our very existence, our very cowardice at the inaction of so many!

If we continue down this path, there are only two possible outcomes.

The Founders fought Against one....and fought For the other....


TYRANNY and REVOLUTION.

Either can Happen Very, Very quickly.


So the question is are YOU willing to pay the Price for Liberty and Freedom? Or are you too self absorbed, too entitled that YOU would rather sell Future Generations into Slavery?




The Choice..............is Yours.

Stimulis Not So Stimulating.....

Well the AP (Associated Press) is reporting that this Great Stimulus Package isn't very stimulating.

The Great $500 per person and $1,000 per couple financial "Help" is now $400 per person and $800 per couple under the $75,000 year income level.

This Translates into about $13 dollar a week extra on your paycheck. If that isn't bad enough next year it falls to about $8.50 a week. Wow.....makes me tingle up my leg.

This Pork Package is one of the worst things passed since Bush's Bank Bailout Package. That one didn't work and the odds are this one won't either. At best it may stunt the Recession, but how, is not clear since the "Jobs" created are not Market Demand Jobs. The Jobs created are artificial demand jobs that the Government will create. History shows those type of Jobs, that do not bring in Fresh capital but just move it around, do not work in the long run. It will most likely cause more damage than it fixes due to the amount of debt we are creating. In a year there is a Good Chance that Inflation will hit and hit hard. Which in turn will tank the economy even more.

Stock up, Store up...it's gonna get ugly..Long before it gets better.

2nd Amendment March

Supporters of the 2nd Amendment are organizing a march on Washington next spring. It is being organized by The Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Ownership but is it supported my the NRA, Gun Owners of America, Second Amendment Foundation and many, many other organizations.

Here is the Michigan's Coalition website:

http://www.mcrgo.org/mcrgo/default.asp

Here is the Link for the March:

http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com/

This March was spurred by the Ruling of the Supreme Court last year and the Knowledge that the Current Congress and President are Not Avid 2nd Amendment Supporters.

So if you wish to let the Governments around the Country know that Americans understand the Constitution even if they don't..... Join the March....and Support your Rights!

The President is Full Of .......Himself....on "Stimulis"

Well the President had his First Press Conference last night and it happened to be on the New "Stimulus" package. I was Not Impressed.

Obama Claimed that his Great Package is not full of Pork, and that since he won no one should question his proposals. Wow, what a Pre-Madonna.

President Obama has said to the People in Indiana that there are no earmarks, and in the same breath said that there is too be a New Bridge and New Highway Construction coming soon to the State. I am sure that several people did a double take and wondered if the President even realized what he just said...of Course they will call it Spending on Infrastructure, but it's earmarks and Pork..big time.

But I am not sure why we are all soo surprised. I mean Obama came up through Chicago Politics. How can we expect him to know the difference between B.S...and Pork?

Socialism is Unconstitutional

What is that you say? Unconstitutional?? How can that be when we have had Socialistic Ideals in practice for quite a while now in this country. Just because it is happening, doesn't make it Constitutional. They at one time said Slavery was Constitutional, but now they are saying it again...this time it's all of us under the control of Government.

Socialism, this Bailout, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Social Security, Subsidies for Farms, Small Business, etc. etc...all Unconstitutional.

Still don't see it? Let me explain.

James Madison is the acknowledged father of the constitution. In 1794, when Congress appropriated $15,000 for relief of French refugees who fled from insurrection in San Domingo to Baltimore and Philadelphia. James Madison wrote disapprovingly, "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."

A Few Years Later Representative William Giles of Virginia, condemned a relief measure for fire victims. Giles insisted that it was neither the purpose nor a right of Congress to "attend to what generosity and humanity require, but to what the Constitution and their duty require."

In 1827, Davy Crockett was elected to the House of Representatives. During his term of office a $10,000 relief measure was proposed to assist the widow of a naval officer. Davy Crockett eloquently opposed the measure saying, “Mr. Speaker: I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living. I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has not the power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Every member on this floor knows it. We have the right as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money.”

In 1854, President Franklin Pierce vetoed a popular measure to help the mentally ill saying, “I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for public charity.” To approve the measure "would be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded.” During President Grover Cleveland’s two terms in office, he vetoed many congressional appropriations, often saying there was no constitutional authority for such an appropriation. Vetoing a bill for relief charity, President Cleveland said, “I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit.”

James Madison said, in a letter to James Robertson, “With respect to the two 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 also said, “If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.” James Madison laid out what he saw as constitutional limits on federal power in Federalist Paper Number 45 where he explained, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined . . . to be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce."

Thomas Jefferson explained in a letter to Albert Gallatin, “Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.”


The Fact that we have strayed so far from the Principles of the Constitution shows how many people are ignorant today of what is in the Founding Documents.

This is a direct result of the Socialists taking over our Education system. This was done in order so that they could later install their form of Government without protest from an ignorant populace.

So far they have succeeded. For how much longer is up to those of us that can see the truth, that understand the Constitution.

When President Obama, in the past, talked about how the Constitution should allow for more wealth redistribution it made plain his ignorance of the same documents that he is espoused to have studied. He was supposed to be a Constitutional Law Professor, but yet fails to grasp the most basic of Principles expressed in the Founding Documents.


Read the Constitution.....Teach your Children.....Your Friends...Anyone who will listen.....

Before the day comes when the Constitution is destroyed by the Same Ignorant Public it is supposed to defend.....
