Shuler Gets "Franked"

Another Progressive Bites the Dust
Alas, but this week yet another Progressive DEMOCRAT - Heath Shuler (D, NC) announced he's NOT running for re-election. Voters in western North Carolina are lucky to hear this. You see, although Heath Shuler is a so-called Blue-Dog Democrat, and supports the 2nd Amendment rights of his constituents, he's also a true-blue Progressive. He fooled the National Rifle Association, but not HIS constituents.

Good riddance to Heath Shuler. He voted for TARP. He voted for Cap and Trade. He voted for the Stimulus. He's a Big Government Progressive. He was doing all he could to support Obama's Alinsky tactics to help destroy America.

So why the sudden change? Why didn't Schuler want to run for re-election?

We can thank Shuler's departure because of the last census which also brought redistricting. Shuler's no dummy. He saw the polls and with the re-districting of his 11th Congressional district, Shuler now has more registered Republicans to contend with. He got the message, just like our old buddy from Massachusetts, Barney Frank. (Frank's the guy who contributed big time to the collapse of the housing market. Ironically, Barney Frank isn't in jail where he belongs).

The "Excuse" for Leaving
Heath Shuler's excuse for leaving office is that he wants to spend more time with his family. That's a LIE. All politicians who are through always try to save face by lying. Shuler stands to get a big trouncing in the November elections and he knows it. His new district will dump his ass. Why face the humiliation of being defeated? He can quit as Congressman and get a free ticket for his healcare, and Congressional salary for the rest of his life. Smart for a LOOSER!

Hence the term "Franked" as in Barney Frank. He too is quitting for the same reason. No, not to be with family. Barney wouldn't have a chance to be re-elected, because his district not has too many Republicans and Independents.

Fairwell to two Progressives who helped support Obama's destructive policies.

Fairwell Heath Schuler. You won't be missed by the folks in your district. Why you couldn't even face them by having and town meetings because you knew we would be there in large numbers and be asking you the hard questions about your voting record!

Romney's in for a Surprise

MSM Say It's All Over
We all know that Romney was the big winner in Florida. The main stream media (MSM) keeps telling us that it's all over now for the rest of the GOP candidates. This is because The Establishment Elites want the primaries to be over.

They dumped millions of dollars into Romney's campaign in Florida to carpet bomb Gingrich with negative ads. Millions! This is how desperate they really are!

Meanwhile, Obama sits back laughing in the White House gathering tons of details for his upcoming campaign against the GOP finalist.

Pretty stupid of the GOP to do this but that shows you how much they want "their boy" to be the final candidate.

One Thing Overlooked
The Establishment Elite GOP is overlooking an important detail. Romney is NO FRIEND of the TEA PARTY! They think that if Romney becomes the GOP candidate, that the Tea Party will automatically roll-over and vote for him because they don't want four more years of the Food Stamp President. They did that for John McCain (a Progressive Republican) and look what happened!! If Romney is the final choice, Obama will get re-elected!

Romney is nothing more than Obama LITE! So what's the big difference? They say that Romney is more electable! REALLY? Romney raised taxes in Massachusetts so the DEMs could keep spending and add more entitlements. He increased state fees to generate more money. He passed RomneyCare which mandates that everyone buy into government insurance that supports abortions. Romney also flipped on gun rights. He agreed to pass anti-gun legislation in Massachusetts without batting an eye. Romney is a BIG GOVERNMENT GUY. Voting for Romney is like voting for another Progressive Democrat. You can't trust a rich guy who flip-flops like he does.

Tea Party Won't Flip
True ideologues in the Tea Party will NEVER vote for Romney no matter how the Establishment GOP tries to sugar coat it! We want REAL CHANGE. The only way that will happen is to select a new GOP candidate that we can support. Unite and support a TRUE CONSERVATIVE! What a concept! It's not too late to do this.

Ron Paul is a valid Conservative, but his foreign policy scares the crap out of most Americans. However, he should stay in the campaign so he can influence the GOP platform in the upcoming convention in Raleigh, NC. He will try and preserve CONSERVATIVE ideas.

But in addition to that, we as a separate movement, are still being ignored by the Establishment GOP. We should strive to find someone who will run in the remaining 46 states. It's our only chance to see a CHANGE in Washington. The Tea Party cannot continue to remain splintered. We must unite as one in order to achieve this goal.

Term Limits

Where's the Magic?
It's amazing that American voters haven't figured out that they really don't need term limits on Congress. Besides, Congress will never write themselves out of power! Congress truly has it too good to want to change. This is corruption at it's best.

Simple Solution
We don't have to wait for Congress because the American people already have the power to enact the change they desire. It's called voting!

If you are unhappy with Congress, all you need to do is register to vote and on election day, go out and cast your vote. If you are unhappy with your encumbent (like most are) then vote their sorry ass out of office. It's just that simple!

Stop Complaining
Take this to heart. You truely can affect a positive change in Washington. However, YOU need to take some responsibility. You need to discuss how you feel with family and friends and tell them how you plan to remidy the situation in November 2012. Tell them they need to dump anyone in office who does NOT defend and support the Constitution! Get them to do the same. Get the momentum started now, and it will be possible to unseat a 20 or 30 year incumbent out-of-office. It's time to give them their deserved rest. Tell your family and friends that anyone who voted for the Patriot Act is no friend of the Constitution no matter what they say!

Bring back "Power to the People."

Are You Safe?

Terrorist Attacks
Good news: If you live in a small town, your chances are good that you won't see much from any terrorist activity. However, that doesn't rule you out completely.

The Bad news: If you live in a big city, you're screwed! Isn't that obvious?

The Data
Here is a map of the continental USA (minus AK) for the time period between 1970 and 2008 showing fatal attacks:

You can see that there wasn't much activity concerning fatal terrorist attacks.

Here is a map of the same area showing the concentrations of terrorist attacks (foiled or otherwise):

Not so nice!

The Bottom Line
If you live in a big city, you should be prepared and much more alert when you are out and about. One third of these attacks occurred in five metropolitan areas, as follows:
  • 156 attacks in Los Angeles County, CA

  • 343 attacks in Manhattan, NY

  • 103 attacks in Miami-Date County, FL

  • 99 attacks in San Francisco, CA

  • 79 attacks in Washington, DC

So, you should be aware that there are people out there who REALLY want to kill you here in the United States! You should be prepared for emergencies. You should have a plan on what to do if you are involved in an attack. Talk your plans over with your family so they are on the same page.

Guest Article - Democratic Spin

by Howie Carr, The Boston Globe

"How profoundly America has changed since January 2009.

I was pondering this the other night during the State of the Union address. Did you know that our elite military units like the Navy SEALs are now examples of America at its absolute finest? Why, wasn't it just a few years ago that Dick Durbin was comparing these very same troops to the Khmer Rouge and Joe Stalin's Red Army?

What used to be Dick Cheney's hit squad is now a beacon of freedom.

But now of course the president is a Democrat. When Durbin spoke a Republican resided in the White House.

Remember when Theo Epstein snubbed Repubilcan George W. Bush when the rest of the Red Sox when to the White House after the 2007 World Series? Nobody said boo. Now Bruins goalie Tim Thomas does the same thing to our PC president and - hey, somebody get a rope!

Since January 2009, natural disasters are no longer the fauilt of the president.

Now that Obama is president, Gen. "Betrayus" is once again Gen Petraeus, the greatest American military genius since MacArthur, no make that U.S. Grant.

George W. Bush played 30 rounds of golf in eight years and it was dereliction of duty. Obama's played 80 - in three years and it's a well deserved rest from his terrible burden of world leadership.

On Jan. 20, 2009, all the homeless people went home. Inflation ended that same day. No longer do dying Americans have to travel to Canada to buy affordable prescription drugs.

The Tea Party - violent rhetoric. Occupy Wall Street and the publicly defecating hippies - in the finest tradition of our Founding Fathers.

Bush mispronounces nuclear - idiot. Obama butchers corpsman - mis-spoke.

Raising the debt ceiling under Bush - the worst kind of fiscal irresponsibility. Raising the debt ceiling under Obama - a valliant effort by our young president to save the world economy.

McDonald's jobs under Bush - "burger flipping." McDonald's jobs under Obama - entry-level jobs with one of America's noblest public corporations.

Unemployment rate of 4.5% un der Bush - "jobless recovery." Unemployment rate of 8.5% under Obama - the new normal.

The Patriot Act under Bush - incipient fascism. The Patriot Act under Obama - yawn.

Words and phrases you havent't heard since January 2009: "no blood for oil ... Cindy Sheehan ... not one more dime ... quagmire ... atrocities ... candlelight vigils ... not on our watch ... waterboarding ... Abu Ghrab ..."

Being a Democrat means never having to say you're sorry."

Remember in November
Americans, please remember these things in the upcoming November elections. These are several more reasons why we need to change Presidents and put one in the White House who has Conservative values and some integrity!

Your Fair Share

Divide and Conquer
One message that came clear from the State of the Union speech was that Obama wants the rich to "pay their fair share." He's been saying this mantra for several months. He wants the money so he can continue overspending and borrowing to help re-distribute the wealth in America. The middle class are being destroyed by Obama's policies.

The Progressive LEFT is also chanting the same thing. In other words, the LEFT wants the rich to pay higher taxes. Obama keeps trying to divide the country into classes. The rich, the middle class and the poor. He wants to take money from the first two groups and give it to the latter. This is called "Social Justice" or the destruction of America.

Wrong Logic
While busy chanting "pay their fair share" Progressives are overlooking one important thing. Not every American citizen pays Federal income taxes. It is a fact that 45% of Americans do not pay ANY income taxes! This adds up to 148,500,000 people who do NOT pay ANY Federal taxes. Why not? This means that the remaining 181,500,000 of us are picking up the tab for the DEAD BEATS IN AMERICA!

What the Hell is fair about that? The rest of us are paying for the freeloaders who pay NOTHING!

"Fair Share" is a Progressive use of language to screw you out of what's yours so they can give it to someone else who may or may not deserve it!

This is not only illogical - it's also unfair and mean-spirited! It's also destroying the country. Everyone should pay taxes! EVERYONE!! OR - there should be no taxes at all! There should be no exceptions if taxation is fair at all. What's worse is that the Federal government thinks that it owns your paycheck before you even see your money. This is illustrated by the fact that they TAKE money out of your paycheck before you even get your hands on it. They call that "Payroll deductions" which includes Federal Withholding Tax, FICA, and Medicare. We call it STEALING!

Tax Laws
Progressives passed the first Federal income tax back in 1913 under Progressive Woodrow Wilson. Everyone at the time was in favor of it because it was only levied against the rich. But within a few years the government saw fit to begin to tax everyone. The moral of that story is that if the government can do it to the rich, they can do it to anybody. Since 1913 the tax laws have been re-written to protect special interests and various lobbyists groups. None of the taxes today are "fair."

Action To Take
Ideally, everyone should just stop paying their taxes to get the government's attention. However, we know this will never happen. Too many people would chicken-out because the IRS would threaten them.

Instead we should DEMAND that Congress revamp the Federal tax system. It should be a flat tax. No one should pay more than 10 to 12% of their income. Everyone should have to pay with NO EXCEPTIONS! No more deductions or waivers.

Government Watch Lists

Privacy is Dead
Remember the days when you didn't have to worry about the US government snooping over your shoulder? Those days are long gone! Your privacy is almost non-existent nowadays. The government can track your location via cell phones, car GPS systems, monitor your social networking, grab your personal surfing data from Google, and access your viewing preferences on cable TV and Netflix. They can even tell what toothpaste you use based on your zip code!!

Buy a Book - Get On a List
The latest thing that you have to worry about is what you like to read. This is being closely scrutinized by Homeland Security and the FBI. It doesn't matter if it's a book from the public library,, Barnes & Nobel, this blog, or where ever you lease or purchase a book. The government is watching - especially if you use a debit or credit card to make the purchase.

Common sense should tell you that buying or just reading "The Anarchist's Cookbook, The Little Red Book", or How to Make Bombs would obviously get the government's attention. That should go without further explanation.

However, there are all kinds of rumors of just how many book titles are on Big Brother's list, but you can be sure there are plenty, and some that would fool you innocents out there. Besides the usual suspects like the ones mentioned, the government has just added any book with the title "Almanac" to their watch list. HUH? So let's get this straight, if you buy the "Farmer's Almanac, this purchase can put you on the watch list because the information contained, could be used by a "Terrorist."

Scheeze!! And they say that the Doomsday Preppers are paranoid!

Be Careful
If you decide to be brave and buy or read a book that the government is "watching" you should be careful. You may end up with having your phones tapped, house surveilled, or getting an unexpected visit without any search warrant required (thank Congress to the passage of the Patriot Act). Meanwhile, just sit back and relax and enjoy your reading materials while you still can before Congress "bans" them too.
