"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win."— Mahatma Gandhi

DATELINE April 28, 2010 Quincy, Illinois—About two hundred Quincy Tea Party members gathered outside the Oakley-Lindsay Center to protest government spending and policies infringing on personal freedoms. The participants were vocal but well-behaved according to Quincy Herald Whig writer Rodney Hart.

After Fearless Reader’s motorcade arrived, those who had assembled near the Center moved closer and a Secret Service agent asked the crowd to move back across the street.

When the crowd didn't move and began singing "God Bless, America" and the national anthem, Quincy Deputy Police Chief Ron Dreyer called for members of the Mobile Field Force (a SWAT team dressed head-to-toe in riot gear) to walk up the street.

Is this the future of America where dissent must be silenced? When this president stood before the nation and told us that his intentions were to "fundamentally transform this nation,” people said it didn’t matter.

Chief Dreyer, the Secret Service and Team Obama along with the corporate-controlled lapdog media have lost all credibility and continue to humiliate and embarrass themselves by overreacting to the ever-growing millions of God-fearing Americans who are impassioned to protect their country against the radicalism of this Administration and the consequences are likely to be irreversible.

The smell of the Left’s panic permeates the air. They are desperate and it shows.

Happy 5th Anniversary, Pope Benedict XVI

I overlooked this momentous occasion yesterday, due to renovations here at home.

On the dat in question, 19 April 2005, I was enroute to South Carolina (on I95 in Virginia about 1300 hours EST) and Geoff was in San Francisco on a Navy AT-  I called both Geoff and my mother when it was first announced, and an hour later when His Holiness was actually announced, I wept woth joy and happiness.

V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Benedicto.

R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat
eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius.
[Ps 40:3]

Pater Noster…,  Ave Maria….

Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum
Benedictum, quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti,
propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo,
quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi
credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum
nostrum. Amen.

V. Let us pray for Benedict, our Pope.

R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make
him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the
will of his enemies. [Ps 40:3]

Our Father,  Hail Mary.

O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look
mercifully upon Thy servant Benedict, whom Thou hast chosen
as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we
beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify
those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the
flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

No Sheeples Here: Now More Than EVER Your Vote MATTERS

No Sheeples Here: Now More Than EVER Your Vote MATTERS

Monday, April 19, 2010

Campaign signs rarely carry the party affiliation of the candidate running for office. Be smart this year—visit

The U.S. Elections website provides you with a map of the United States where you can click on your state to see who’s running for office. Each office will be listed there with the incumbent elected official and those who are running against him or her. You will see their party affiliation, a brief biography and, in most cases, a link to their campaign websites.

No Sheeples Here will never advocate voting solely based on a candidate’s party affiliation. Learn as much as you can about all the candidates running for office in your state. Decide for yourself who best mirrors your core values.

Get your information straight from the horse’s mouth and NOT from the corporate-controlled media or the current Administration’s apparatchiks.

Vote in your primaries. Don’t sit at home. If the path this country is being taken down concerns you, then your vote can change that. It all starts with YOU. Make your voice heard. Make your vote count.

The 112th Congress must not be a repeat of the current 111th Congress. If we wish to stop the march of socialism and secure our recently imperiled liberty, be informed. Remember, the clock is this administration’s worst enemy.

Obama's Easter Address Includes "Muslims and Hindus, Nonbelievers"

On Easter Sunday, Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Muslims, Jews, Hindus and nonbelievers deny this, some going so far as to deny his very existence. Yet Obama, natch, sees fit to mention those very group in his Easter address. From the AP via Don Surber: Obama’s secular humanist Easter. Here's the key quote:
While we worship in different ways, we also remember the shared spirit of humanity that inhabits us all — Jews and Christians, Muslims and Hindus, believers and nonbelievers alike.
Jesus was Jewish, but the Jews deny his resurrection as well as his divinity. As Don points out, Muslims weren't even close to being around back then and deny his divinity anyway. And Hindus? Nonbelievers?
President Barack Obama issued an Easter address Saturday urging people of all faiths, along with nonbelievers, to embrace their common aspirations and “shared spirit of humanity.”
Shared spirit of humanity? What kind of gobbledygook is that?
Obama used his weekly radio and Internet address to touch lightly on some of his administration’s top priorities: expanding health coverage, creating jobs and improving education. But his comments were more spiritual than political in tone.
Au contraire, mon frère! See if you can find anything resembling 'spiritual' here save a few fleeting religious references:
“On this Easter weekend,” he said, “let us hold fast to those aspirations we hold in common as brothers and sisters, as members of the same family — the family of man.”

Obama noted that Jewish families recently celebrated Passover, and on Sunday, “my family will join other Christians all over the world in marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
Marking or celebrating? It's ironic that the most viciously pro-abort President in US history - so much so that he voted 4 times for outright infanticide as an Illinois Senator - will 'mark' the resurrection of one sentenced unjustly to death.
He also embraced a broader, more ecumenical audience. “While we worship in different ways,” the president said, “we also remember the shared spirit of humanity that inhabits us all — Jews and Christians, Muslims and Hindus, believers and nonbelievers alike.”

Work is important to people’s security and dignity, Obama said. “That is why it was heartening news that last month, for the first time in more than two years, our economy created a substantial number of jobs, instead of losing them,” he said.
No mention of the 4.5 million net jobs lost on his watch, but you can see the 'spiritual' implications here, no?

He called health “the rock upon which our lives are built.” He made no direct reference, however, to the recently enacted health care legislation, which divided Congress and the nation.
And here I thought that Jesus was the “the rock upon which our lives are built.”

Education is valuable, the president said, but “we also know that ultimately, education is about something more, something greater. It is about the ability that lies within each of us to rise above any barrier, no matter how high; to pursue any dream, no matter how big; to fulfill our God-given potential.”
And government dependency will apparently get us there, no? In total, Obama mentioned Jesus Christ the same number of times he mentioned Muslims, Hindus and nonbelievers in his Easter address. This was no 'spiritual' address in tone, it was political. But don't question his faith:

Repeal the 17th! - Washington Rebel

Repeal the 17th! - Washington Rebel


Repeal the 17th!

Let's face it, today there are no real checks on federal government power. Congress and the Executive does whatever it wants, and the Supreme Court does nothing but provide them cover. The federal government is now a government of unlimited powers. But it wasn't always this way.

In the original design of our representative republic, there was an effective check on congressional power through the state legislatures' power to appoint (and remove) Senators. But the passage of the 17th Amendment in 1913 (the same year as the 16th Amendment (income tax) and the Federal Reserve Act), the state legislatures' power to appoint its Senators was eliminated, thus changing the fundamental structure of our government, and expanding federal control in every area of our lives.

Repealing the 17th Amendment would reinstate the states' proper relationship to the federal political process, and also have the effect of increasing the importance of the individual state legislatures. In other words, "we the people" would be more focused on our states, rather than on the federal government. Because with state legislatures appointing the Senators to represent their state, they would then have direct influence over the selection of federal judges and the jurisdiction of the federal judiciary.

So we would be focused more on our states (where government affects us most), rather than on the entire nation (of which most of we'll never even visit). No more "one size fits all."

Repealing the 17th Amendment would also greatly help with the problem of money in politics. With the attention placed on state legislatures instead of the federal government, lobbyists would lose a significant amount of influence. It would be much more difficult to lobby 50 state legislatures than just one in Washington DC. Also, it should be obvious that Senators appointed by the state legislatures wouldn't need to finance a campaign.

Kiss your Tax refund goodbye…

By datechguy

…if you don’t buy health insurance says the IRS Chief:

Speaking at the National Press Club on Monday, Shulman downplayed the IRS’s role in enforcing the recent overhaul of the health insurance industry by claiming the agency would not aggressively target individuals who don’t purchase coverage. He noted that the health-care bill expressly forbids the agency from freezing bank accounts, seizing assets or pursuing criminal charges, but when pressed said the IRS would most likely use tax refund offsets to penalize those that don’t comply with the mandate. The IRS uses refund offsets to collect from individuals that owe the federal government a delinquent debt.

Tell me that this didn’t take place one week before tax day and while the Tea Party Express is driving across the country.

I’d just LOVE to be the congressman who has to defend attaching people’s refunds, the young who this will hit the hardest will be positively thrilled!

This is one more reason to adjust your withholding. Once you do so take that money and put it in a CD that matures around April 15th of next year. Instead of hoping to see your refund let the government wait for your money.

And you get the interest too!

Stuff like this has an excellent chance of turning 2010 and 2012 into a seminal election and remember in Bart Stupak’s own words we don’t know which democrats voted no only because he gave them cover.

Update: It made Hotair’s headlines.

Update 2: I’m soliciting comments from congressional candidates.

Gossip: 3 Ways To Stop It | Patricia Rossi

Gossip: 3 Ways To Stop It | Patricia Rossi

Please watch this quick one-minute video

I’m going to talk about something very scary; it has six letters and starts with a G. It’s simply frightening. This villain, Mr. G, can:

  • Kill careers
  • Break hearts and
  • Ruin sacred friendships

We’re talking about Gossip. We have all done it or cracked our necks in half, craning to hear it. Let’s square off with ourselves to eradicate gossip from our lives. We especially need to cut loose the slippery fancy forms of gossip we use to seem sympathetic, concerned, or to deem our gossipy selves innocent.

Example: “That poor Ted, bless his heart, sure is ballooning up. He needs to back away from the buffet,” or, “Please pray for Sally. She’s on her fourth plastic surgery and starting to look like a drag queen!”

No matter how we dress it up with feigned concern, and/or, “Bless their hearts,” it’s still gossip.

So let’s kick the habit!!! We could read a great book and talk about it, plant a tree and nurture it, or make a wonderful meal and share the recipe. If we are really feeling courageous and open, we could look at why gossip has such an addictive pull in our lives. What are we evading, masking, or trying to fill up in ourselves with gossip? But I’m often asked what to do, when people are gossiping about the Ted’s and Sallies of the world.

There are three ways to stop gossip:

  1. Change the subject by asking a positive question. “I love the shirt you are wearing. Please share with me where you got it.”
  2. You can be direct. “It’s really not cool to gossip about Sallie. She’s not here to defend herself, so let’s take this issue to her together and see if we can resolve it.”
  3. My favorite retort to gossip goes like this: “OH Lord! I have way too much to fix in myself to use up my valuable energy and time gossiping about Sallie.” You can even kick in, “What type of things are you working on in your life?” That question usually makes people shell-shocked, like they’ve just spotted J-Lo, the twelve disciples, and Tiger Woods at The Cheesecake Factory.

So if you have a hankering to gossip, pretend it will be written in the sky for all to see, or do what I do and chant to yourself, Gossip makes you ugly. Gossip makes you ugly. Because we all know what we put out there will hurl back to us at warped speed. So, make a habit of building people up when they aren’t present. Then watch you hopes, goals, and life shine like a new dime.
