What I'm reading...

"The War on Christmas" by John Gibson. So far so good.

What I suggest everyone reads:

"The Fair Tax Book" by Neal Boortz and John Linder
"The United States Consitution" by Great Americans
"Persecution" by David Limbaugh
"They Just Don't Get It" by Col. David Hunt

Tax Reform Panel --- Explained?

Tax Reform Guide: Ernst & Young Analysis Of the President's Advisory Panel Recommendations

It takes a 1.09 MB PDF file from a third party organization (total of 112 Pages) to explain the Tax Panel's response.

Does anyone else see a problem with this?

Boiling Blood...

Couldn't think of a good title for this, so this is what you get. I'm tired and fed up with the state of our country.

We have a large number of Americans fighting to maintain the freedoms I enjoy writing this and you enjoy reading it (okay, enjoy may be a strong word here) and we are consistently side tracked from the base responsibility we have to those men and women.

We sit here, force fed a bunch of useless garbage, in 15 second sound bites, and think we know what is going on. The one thing that makes us unique, that makes us Americans, is that we were founded as a government Of the People, For the People. I remind you, my good reader, that we are a REPUBLIC, not a Democracy. Guess what, that means that you need to get involved if you want to change things.

I was having a conversation with a co-worker the other day at the fact that in India there is no such thing as Social Security, nor a Pension, and that about $2000 of every car that GM sells goes to pay pensions. He is from India, and does not say that the Indian policies are a bad thing, but that it is the people's responsibilities to take care of themselves. Personally, I applaud this attitude. We used to be a country where we took care of ourselves and each other. Now, all but a few are sychophants to the government.

We are taxed to the point that we cannot afford to save anything. We have oppresive credit card billing and contracts because we live in a society where we have to have it all now. We argue over abortion and the death penalty instead of looking toward the root of the problem. We have to be dual income families in order to compete with all the 'haves' and to pay off our bills instead of spending more time with our families.

We are lost and wandering in the wilderness. Is there a way we can get out? Is there something we can do to be worthy of the sacrifice that our Men and Women in uniform are making for us?


By being Americans. What does it take to be an American?

  • Get involved and help your Congressperson and Senator understand that you want some changes from Washington. Take back our country.
  • Stop bickering over silly things like whose fault it was that the levee's failed in New Orleans and help the people get back on their feet.
  • Stop bickering over the death penalty and start looking to instill values and morals into our children so that they know that killing is wrong.
  • Get mad about the opressive, Marxist tax structure we live under and tell the government "No More!". That you need your money so you can provide for yourself when you are older.
We are a free Republic, that has been purchased with the blood of many Americans for many years. We are overdue on the payment for that debt.

More on complacency in our republic


We have forgotten that as a country... As a People... THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

We are a unique melting pot, and our value set and goals for individual freedom is what makes us different from the rest of the world.

Also, the fact that we are a Federal Republic, not a Democracy, is what makes us different. But it also means that we all (everyone) has to take responsibility for their actions. We have forgot our responsibility to our fellow Americans. Yea yea, we respond when there is a disaster, and we do it well, but that is short term, sound bite thinking that has infected us on every level. We need to look towards the future, towards spending some quality time selecting our elected representatives.

How many of us can say what the 16th amendment covered? Or the 27th amendment?

Blue Tarp display and the PC police...

This is just TOO FUNNY...

I love the display. Laughter is one of the best medicines... Yet...

"Although most people did enjoy the decorations, a few customers found the display to be in poor taste," said a statement issued Tuesday night by Lakeside Shopping Center in Metairie.

Can you believe it... MOST people enjoyed it, but a few complained, so he had to take it down.

We are no longer a culture based on logic and reason... Now the few prevail over the many.
