I'd Like to Apologize

I would like to apologize to the rest of the country for our Representative - Alan Grayson. He is a disgrace to our District, our State, and our Country. I did my part by casting my vote against Grayson, but it just wasn't enough. I do not understand what my neighbors were thinking when they cast their ballots for this press loving, YouTube inspired, spot light grabbing idiot.

I certainly hope that his rantings are simply a mechanism to get attention in an attempt to make a name for himself, because if he truly believes what he is saying then God help us all.

Mr. Grayson, please RESIGN. I'm one of your constituents and you sir certainly do not represent me!

23 Rounds of Golf

So, according to most news outlets, President Obama has played 23 rounds of golf since he became President. I personally couldn't care less about how the President spends his free time or relaxes. Frankly, it is kind of nice that we have a President young enough to play a pickup game of basketball or a full round of golf.

However, the number 23 does seems a bit excessive. I'm not a golfer, but I do know about how long it takes to play a round. Since Obama has only been President for 40 weeks (if I counted correctly from January 20th) then more than once every two weeks seems a bit much.

You'd think with all that time on the course to contemplate the universe, he would have made a decision on the Afghan troops by now.

Press 1 For English - Really?

Whenever I call a service provider (power company, phone company, bank, cable) and get the usual automated call router, "Please listen carefully as our options have changed..." - "Press 1 for English", I get rather crazed.

This is the United States and we speak English (American actually), but English nonetheless. If you want to press a number for Spanish, or Haitian Creole, or French - great, but please assume we can speak English unless we opt out for something else.

The amount of wasted resources, time, and productivity in this country due to people not bothering to learn the language is infuriating. Why people come to the U.S. and then try to force their culture and language on us is confusing.

It is a matter of safety and national security that our population reads and understands one language. It is not possible to have all signs in multiple languages. It is problematic for people to not be able to read Hospital, Danger, Stop, Yield, Fire, Rail Road Crossing, Police, Keep Left, Food Stamp Line, or Vote Conservative.

Please, for God sake - and ours - English first (or maybe only).

So... should we run against Alan Grayson?

So... Lucid and I are talking about mounting a campaign...

What do you think?


(1) Fair Tax
(2) No Single Payer Health Care -- Health Care transparency and competition across state borders.
(3) America is a Melting Pot, but that is what makes it unique... and why we are all Americans
(4) Make sure our borders are secure
(5) Provide for defense.

Let us know...

Hey Janet - Try Enforcing the Law

Sheriff Arpaio, good job!

The sheriff of Maricopa County Arizona, Joe Arpaio, is a true patriot and enforcer of the law. Unlike Janet Napolitano, head of the Department of Homeland Security, who has drafted a new agreement with local law enforcement that specifies, "... the priorities of DHS, one of which is to go after 'criminal aliens' — illegal immigrants who have committed a state crime." Therefore, since illegal immigration is a federal crime, the DHS is trying to limit Sheriff Arpaio's power to enforce immigration laws.

Janet, we should be using any and all means to enforce immigration laws and you should be held criminally liable for not doing more to uphold the laws of the United States. It does not matter if you agree or disagree with the law, you must follow it - it is not up to your interpretation of it. Until it is changed, it is illegal for non US citizens to enter our country without proper documentation - PERIOD!

There should be no debate. Build a double fence 12 feet high and patrol the area between with the National Guard - that's right, the National Guard guards the nation (hence the name). The flow of illegal aliens across our southern border is no less than an invasion.

The last time I check Article I Section 8 of the United States Constitution states in part, "To provide for calling fourth the Militia (read National Guard) to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions".

This being the case, I believe that the American people have good cause to hold the entire Congress in contempt as they all took oaths of office to uphold the laws of the United States and to protect it against invasion. Please someone explain to me how over 12 million illegal aliens does not constitute and invasion. And please spare me the "racial profiling" and the "you have no compassion for the poor" garbage. The United States is a sovereign nation and you need documentation to enter it.

Congress (that's the Senate and the House), do your job or get out of the way. There's serious work to be done.
