Let This Be A Warning

People Are Freaking Out
People along the east coast are literally flipping-out because of Hurricane Irene. Store owners of Lowes, Home Depot and places that sell batteries, generators, and flashlights are also having booming business. There has also been a run on generators, pumps, and bottled water. People have been fighting over bottled water. Here is a photo to show how crazy it is:

Why? people tend to panic during stressful times. Take this as your wake-up call America. Don't put yourself in this position. BE PREPARED for emergencies.

The Experience
If you have never been through a hurricane, let's just sum it up by saying that it is frightful. The winds are tremendous and contiunuous (until the eye passes over). The winds reverse and the storm continues to move past causing more damage.

The first thing you will notice is the tree damage. The next are the power outages. If you're not prepared for this, this can be most tramatic. Power outages are common and may last for a week or two depending on where you live. Flashlight batteries and candles only last so long and after that, you're in the dark!

The next thing to face is the torrents of rain. It is not uncommon to get 10 inches of rain at one time! This floods homes, businesses, and streets. Flooding just adds to the confusion created by the storm. Hence, there is usually a strong demand for pumps of all kinds. However, they only work if you have electricity! You can have a good pump and no electricity. The result is that your basement will still flood and cause damage.

Cell phones become overloaded and it becomes impossible to rely on them for serious communication. Land lines may or may not be operational depending of whether trees have torn-down telephone lines. Passing along information via radios is the only means of communication that is dependable during storms.

Streets and roadways get blocked either by flooding or by downed trees and power lines making movement from place to place problematic. If you're stuck at home, you will have to take cold showers and eat cold food unless you have a way to deal wiith this.

The Message...
Be prepared for emergencies. Don't wait for government assistance. It won't be there when YOU need it. Prepare to take care of you and your family for the duration - whatever that is. Be able to offer assistance to those who may need your help. You never know when you may need it! Hurricane Irene should serve as a wake-up call. Become proactive and get your ?HIT together!

Why Is Obama Killing Jobs in SC?

The NLRB Is Blocking Job Creation
The Obama administration is pro-union. They don't like ANY company that is NOT unionized because Obama protects his union buddies any chance he can. This is carried to extreme when the government tells a private business where they can or cannot open and run a branch of their business.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is doing just that to one of our states with high unemployment. South Carolina has over 10% unemployment. Boeing decided to build a manufacturing plant in South Carolina. This is good for the state because it brings over 5,000 new jobs to help ease the strain of the bad economy.

However, Obama didn't like this move on the part of Boeing. SO he waited until Boeing built the multi-million dollar plant and then ordered the NLRB to stop the opening of the plant. This is a crushing blow to a major US manufacturer and to the citizens of South Carolina. WHY?

It's All About Unions
South Carolina is a so-called "right to work state." There are actually 22 right to work states that protect workers from being forced to pay union dues or be forced into joining a union. States who do not have this law enforce the "Closed Shop" rule loved by unions. This rule coerces employees into joining the union whether they want to or not, and forces them to pay fees and monthly union dues in order to keep their job. Individuals who don't join the union loose their job and cannot work there!

Obama's Logic
It's better to give support to unions and cause the collapse of a major manufacturing company. Boeing is one of the few remaining companies that manufacturer and produce goods that are sold internationally on a large scale. It seems like Obama is trying to destroy this capability just for his union buddies. It may also be because he is trying to re-distribute the wealth and lower America's standard of living. Why else would he do this?

Action To Take
Demand that your reps investigate this situation and stop the NLRB from telling private companies where the can or cannot open business. Big Government is overstepping their authority (AGAIN).

Kiss the 4th Goodbye

Illegal Search & Seizure
The fourth Amendment clearly states that it's against the law to perform illegal searches or to seize personal property. The 4th Amendment states:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

Ohio Police Violate the 4th!
In a recent Town Hall meeting in Ohio, Congressman Steve Chabot (R, OH) asked the police to grab all cameras and cell phones from his constituents. The police complied so as to "prevent an embarrassing YouTube video from making the rounds." However, the left-wing media was allowed to photograph and film the whole event. Perplexed? Don't be! This is a violation of a citizens RIGHTS granted by the US Constitution!

There is no law that disallows the video recording or photographing of a public event held in a public building. This action also violates the 1st Amendment (Free speech).

Action To Take
Americans need to be concerned about these actions! At the very least, the police should be charged for civil rights violations and the Congressman should be charged for ethics violations! The Citizens in Congressman Chabot's District should seriously consider recalling him from office! This incident should not go unpunished! These individuals need to all be held accountable! DEMAND IT!

We Were Lucky... This Time

The Earthquake Was a Warning for All
Fortunately for most Americans, we suffered no building damage or personal injury from the 5.9 earthquake located in Virginia. However, it serves as a warning for all of us to realize that Americans are NOT prepared for a serious event causing bodily injury and massive property damage. Our systems will be quickly overloaded and communications will be hit first. Public transportation and hospitals will be next. Are you prepared? Do you have a plan for survival or are you one of those who will count on the government to bail you out? (The latter, will probably end up dead, like many did in Katrina). You need to have an emergency plan!

What It Showed
Most Americans do not have a plan for survival. In fact, they've never considered one because they never thought (or think) that this can happen to them. WRONG! Hell, schools and offices alike have practice fire drills on a regular basis. When is the last time you held your own practice "fire drill" in your home? Do you and your family know where to go in an emergency? Do they know what to bring if they have to leave the house or office? Do you have a bug-out-bag at home and at the office for just an occasion? Do you even know what a bug-out-bag is? Why not? What will you do with your pets? Bring them or leave them? You need to make these decisions now so you won't waste any time during the emergency. Will you stay calm or panic? If you have a plan - it will be easier to stay calm and to help others as needed.

Get Ready
There are many books and information on the Internet about survival. This blog will not endorse any particular source. You need to get busy and find these resources so you can develop you own personal emergency survival plan. You should also prepare and have enough food with you for a minimum of THREE days per person! Talk to other people and find-out if they have a plan. If so, ask them what they have done. Don't just learn - do! Become an active planner and get your survival materials ready at hand. Include things to be able to help others if possible. Train your family and friends on what to do, where to go, and how to get there.

Better to be over-ready than part of the problem!

Facebook Censors Political Content!

Critical Remarks Removed
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer posted some critical remarks on Facebook regarding Obama's latest attempt to give backdoor AMNESTY to ILLEGAL aliens. OK, so far so good. But then, apparently someone at Facebook did not like those remarks and summarily removed Brewer's content from her web page.

Obama Violates the Law AGAIN!
So let's get this straight. Obama decides not to deport ILLEGAL aliens because they are deemed "no threat" even though they broke the law to get here and are taking jobs away from US citizens! This is a violation of existing immigration laws. Shouldn't someone be pointing this out to Americans? Obama swore an oath on the Bible to obey and defend those laws and the US Constitution. Now he chooses not to so he can get the Hispanic vote in the coming election. How's that for transparency!

No Free Speech at Facebook
What's wrong with saying whatever you may think about that situation? The first Amendment guarantees freedom to say whatever you want in this country. Facebook said that it "mistakenly removed a post" in which Arizona Governor Jan Brewer criticized Obama's decision to stop deporting ILLEGAL aliens. "Mistakenly?" Are you buying this explanation? We're NOT! Facebook explained in an email to Brewer that her posting was removed because it contained an illustration that violated Facebook standards. No other details were given.

However, when The Associated Press (AP) confronted Facebook about their blatant political censorship, their spokesperson Andrew Noyes emailed AP that Brewer's post was removed "in error and that Facebook was sorry." Keep in mind, that Governor Brewer never received this explanation or apology. This SMELLS LIKE A DEAD FISH!

The "Offensive Illustration"
It turns out that the so-call offending illustration was nothing more than a drawing of Jan Brewer in a "Rosie the Riveter pose with the headline "Doing the Job the Feds Won't Do." On a side note, this drawing has been posted on Brewer's Facebook page several times before without any repercussions. SO Why THIS TIME?

Apparently someone at Facebook didn't like the criticism and they took the initiative to take it down. Was this a rogue act, or is this the new policy at Facebook? Either way, better watch out if you use Facebook - Big Brother is watching and may do the same to your remarks!
