Doctor, Doctor, Give Me the News!

Some mighty strange things have been happening to me lately. I have a craving for tofu, I travel to the mailbox countless times a day looking for a check, I have inquired about taking French lessons and yesterday I was caught by my wife... hugging a Maple in the side yard. She took me to the Immediate Care Center at once. After being poked, prodded and submitting blood, the doctor was stumped. Just then, a nurse overheard my wife and I talking about Operation Chaos and my consideration of voting for Hillary next week. We have a diagnosis - Clintonitis Liberalis. Well the doctor said it should clear up by next Wednesday and told my wife to keep me away from MSNBC and tie dyed products until then.

I am no fan of HRC, but I am intrigued by the idea of keeping the madness going a little longer. That, and the idea of Obama in the White House makes me ill. So, what do you think? Should I participate in Operation Chaos, or vote for Huckabee? What do you plan to do Tuesday? Best response wins a tofu sandwich!

The Lone Danger

Jimmy Carter just can't find a way to create a legacy for himself. Instead of laying a wreath at the tomb of Yassir Arafat on April 15, he should stick to Habitat for Humanity. Why does Carter think he is the great peace maker? His one accomplishment while in office was to bring together Egypt and Israel for peace talks. All the while, Iran captured American hostages and restored the Ayatollahs to power. It took a Reagan inauguration for Iran to free the hostages.

Now he cozies up to every terrorist group from Chavez to Hamas. No wonder Israel would not meet with him during his recent trip to the Middle East. Even the Secretary of State asked him not to meet with the terrorist group. He legitimized Hamas as a government, instantly trashing decades of isolationism by the rest of the civilized world.

Now for the kicker - the Carter Center for legitimizing terrorists has received over $19 million in the past few years of tax payer money. There have been calls by some in Congress to revoke his passport. I say call your congressman and pressure them to cut off funding. The worst president ever just keeps getting worse.

The Old Bait and Switch

Today could decide the Left's nominee if Senator Clinton loses in Pennsylvania. Let me take a stab at what an Obama presidency looks like. It is becoming more clear as the campaign goes on that BHO is a made man, a stuffed suit. He admits himself that he is "a pretty good politician." Obama's relationships with some shady characters have tarnished the golden boy image and the tough questioning in the last debate has just plain ticked him off. He is BHO, the chosen one. No one is allowed to ask him the tough questions. Questions like: Why do you associate with Bill Ayers, member of Weather Underground? He is an admitted terrorist whose group is responsible for bombing the NYC police department and the Pentagon. He is unrepentant and has said that the only thing he regrets is that he could not do more! Obama's answer: I was 8 years old when that happened. He lives in my hood. He is a great English professor. And a terrorist whose house you used to kick off your political career. Next question: Why did you not leave the church that taught so much hate and racism? Answer: Rev. Wright is like a crazy uncle. I cannot disown him anymore than I can disown my white grandmother - a typical racist white person. Last Question: Are you an elitist? No Way! Just because I called the average American bitter, just because I said they cling to their guns and their god, they hate immigrants and long for the factory to magically reappear. I am not an elitist. My mom was on food stamps, ya know. I got street cred. Yeah, I went to Ivy League schools. I was the editor of the Harvard Law Review. I am not an elitist.

One of these comes up and I can see a simple mistake here. Add them all up and we have trouble. BHO, while in the Illinois senate, voted against 14th amendment rights for babies that survive an abortion. He chose instead to have the doctor place them on a shelf in the utility room until they die on their own. He chose to vote against a bill, that later became law, that gave a citizen the right to self defense in their own home. This man is out of touch with middle America. I am joining operation chaos. I am seriously considering casting my vote for Hillary in the primary. They both scare me, but BHO is America's worst case scenario. He says the right things, makes the sales pitch, then whammo, the old bait and switch.

Don't miss the launch of Phase III - DefendMyCommunity press conference!

This information was transmitted by email from ROCK and is reprinted here.

On April 17 at Kye's II in Jeffersonville, Indiana, ROCK will hold it's third DefendMyCommunity press conference beginning at 10 a.m. and promptly ending by 10:30. The press conference will formally unveil the billboard located at the intersection of I-65 and Veterans Parkway. This event will focus on the threat pornography and the sex industry pose to our most precious and vulnerable citizens - our children. You will hear first hand from a former Assistant United States Attorney, who prosecuted obscenity and child exploitation cases for nearly 20 years, about the role pornography plays in harming children, including for predators and those that would harm our children. You will hear testimony from three convicted predators about how pornography fueled an addiction that resulted in acting out and harming children. They did this in the hope that others will understand why pornography is such a threat and decided to stand against the sex industry and keep future generations of children from being hurt.
We are particularly enthusiastic about this upcoming press conference and believe it will far surpass the prior events based on the response we already are receiving. Each billboard/conference has addressed the various ways in which the sex industry harms our families, exploits women and children and negatively impacts our communities as a whole. We have engaged the business, civic, political and faith communities in this campaign, demonstrating that these issues transcend all boundaries and impact all segments of our region.

"Right" of Passage

Let's face it, teenagers are rebellious. They push the limit to see what they can get away with. They try to not follow the crowd, and then fall for a misguided stance on some hot political issue. Global warming, animal rights or save the whales. Especially in college, where the atmosphere is ripe for protesting. They are away from parents and feel a certain amount of freedom, not to mention being indoctrinated by all those liberal professors day in and day out. I think it is all good, like a phase of life that everyone has. You may have wore you hair long or got a piercing, but it passed. You grew up. That is how I view liberalism. Liberalism (a.k.a. as progressiveness, socialism, collectivism or communism) is a phase most folks go through. They see the unfortunate students in their classrooms that pay increased tuition every year and say "that's not right." They hear about how if the taxes were higher, then we could fund all the programs that people needed. They listen to the professors say there is no God, you have no one to answer to but yourself, so do what feels good. They may even go to Canada or Russia in a time of war to protest. No problem. They eventually grow up, get a job, pay off their student loans and start paying a boat load of taxes. Conservatism takes hold as they seek freedom from the nanny state and try to make their own way in this land of opportunity. They raise families, go to church and are good citizens just like their parents. They no longer want your hand outs. They only want to be left alone.

The problem occurs when some just don't grow up. They are still on campus in their minds. They support groups like PETA, and then rally for a woman's right to abort her baby. You can't wear mink, but you can kill a fetus. They buy into the farce of wealth redistribution. They put their faith in the government and their hope is that it will take care of everything. They remind me of spoiled children that think they deserve everything they see. They believe in government bail outs instead of markets correcting themselves. They don't even believe in kids playing dodge ball in school, not to mention prayer in the classroom.

I believe in their right to feel how they feel. I also believe in my right to tell them how I see it. And the way I see it, it's time to grow up.

Planned Parenthood in a Growth Industry - Unless you are a Fetus.

Planned Parenthood, the oxymoronic named abortion provider, has reported profits in the last fiscal year of $1 billion. How did they do it you ask? Why, more abortions and federal funding of course. Planned Parenthood receives one third of its budget from the federal government. That's $336.7 million last year of tax payer money. Guess what? They want even more this year. The PP lobbyists are out in full force. Business is swift at the clinics also. Total number of abortions for the fiscal year were 289,750, up 24,807 from the previous year.

My stomach turns and I feel ill at the thought that we are talking about human life here, not widgets. What a great business plan. Sell more murders while increasing funding from the government.

What is Obama's stance on abortion, you may be wondering? He said that he would not want his daughters, ages 9 and 6, to be PUNISHED with a baby if they were to get pregnant. He is talking about his own grandchild here. How does he get away with this garbage?

Contact Baron Hill. Contact all of our state leaders and tell them no more funding for an organization that commits infanticide almost one thousand times daily. Cut them off completely. They can hand out condoms on their own dime. I know the answer you will get from Baron's office because I have contacted them before. He believes in the taxpayer's right to subsidize abortion clinics.

Oil in the Lower 48 - Twenty Years Worth

Well it's not the Economist, but another quality publication is reporting something that intelligent people everywhere have known for years - America has oil in the ground! and lots of it. Kiplinger reported the new oil find in March of this year.
It is stashed away miles under foot in a remote place called North Dakota where the natives speak with strange English usually only heard in movies. There is a region there known as the Bakken oil fields that experts claim holds more than 100 billion barrels of oil. That is enough to meet America's needs for up to twenty years and give us time to develop the new energy sources that we so desperately need. It may take five years to fully utilize the reserve there, but good ole ingenuity will bring it to the surface. Best of all, there are no Caribou or Flying Squirrels that will be pushed off their natural habitat.
This is a huge strategic advantage for the U.S. We can finally break our strangle hold on those menacing Canadians (our largest supplier of oil) and Mexicans (our second largest supplier of oil) and be self sustaining in the energy department. Maybe in twenty years we can import sun light from the Canadians to power our solar gizmos. But, Ted Turner says we will all be cannibals in thirty years, so I guess enjoy it while you can.
