It’s About Time!

The attached photo is of a billboard recently established on I-70 just south of Lake City between Blue Springs, Missouri and Grain Valley, Missouri on the north side of Freeway.

A group  gathered there today to celebrate its unveiling. The cost of 10 months rental of the billboard and doing the artwork was $6500.   We feel that is a reasonable cost to reach out to 1,000,000 vehicles per month and perhaps motivate their participation in the electoral process to get our country on a sound footing.

We need to put up billboards

like this all across America.

PASS THIS ON….

FINALLY SOMEONE ASKED HIM THE QUESTION!

Re-post of a email that was sent to me. Thanks, Mike.

FINALLY SOMEONE ASKED HIM THE QUESTION

ON “ABC-TV” Monday October 12, 2009
DURING THE “NETWORK SPECIAL ON HEALTH CARE“…. OBAMA WAS ASKED:

“MR PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP YOUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM
AND JOIN THE NEW ‘UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM’ THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON ????”
THERE WAS A STONEY SILENCE AS OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION AND CHOSE NOT TO ANSWER IT !!!
IN ADDITION, A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION AND THEIR ESPONSE WAS.”WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT.”
AND THEY DID. IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE “KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL” WAS WRITTEN INTO THE NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM INITIATIVE ENSURING THAT THAT CONGRESS WILL BE 100% EXEMPT !
SO, THIS GREAT NEW HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND I… IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR OBAMA, HIS FAMILY OR CONGRESS…??
WE (THE AMERICAN PUBLIC) NEED TO STOP THIS PROPOSED DEBACLE ASAP !!!! THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG !!!!!
PERSONALLY, I CAN ONLY ACCEPT A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL THAT EXTENDS TO EVERYONE… NOT JUST US LOWLY CITIZENS…. WHILE THE WASHINGTON “ELITE” KEEP RIGHT ON WITH THEIR GOLD-PLATED HEALTH CARE COVERAGES.
If you don’t pass this around, may you enjoy his Plan!
WHAT???
The Republic has a CONSTITUTION???
Amendment 28

Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the  United States ..

Imagine what would happen if everybody passed this around?

“Stealth” Jihad – hiding in plain sight

Dear Fellow Conservative:

Muslims trying to take over the United States from within? It sounds unbelievable — but it’s happening right now. And if we continue to ignore it, our country may never be the same.

Enter Robert Spencer, HUMAN EVENTS columnist and author of the bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad.

Now, in his brand-new book Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America without Guns or Bombs, Spencer lays bare the chilling details of a secret Muslim strategy to steadily subvert our culture and erode our freedoms until finally Islam reigns supreme.

For a limited time, HUMAN EVENTS is making Robert Spencer’s Stealth Jihad available to you absolutely FREE.

In Stealth Jihad, Robert Spencer explains the all-encompassing, even totalitarian, nature of the Islamic law that the stealth jihadists are laboring to impose upon us — and shows the many ways in which this effort is advancing:

  • by taking advantage of political correctness among government and law enforcement officials that keeps them from even speaking about Islamic jihad, much less taking steps to resist it
  • by demanding, ever more shrilly, the accommodation of Muslim practices in public places, universities, schools, workplaces, and even banking and finance
  • by smearing and silencing anti-jihad and anti-terror voices in America and worldwide
  • by using “hate speech” laws to try to stifle analysis of the elements of Islam that jihadists use to justify violence
  • by transforming public school textbooks into tracts that proselytize for Islam
  • and even by infiltrating the highest levels of the American government.

Roll Over, or Resist?

From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Grassfire.org Alliance

Someone recently suggested to me that resistance against
Barack Obama and his socialist agenda is futile.

Is conservative resistance against the radical agenda being
planned for America useless, and in vain?

I don’t believe so, and neither do the 285,821 citizens who
pledge to resist what President-elect Obama, Nancy Pelosi
and Harry Reid have planned for our nation.

That’s why I’m appealing to members of The Resistance.

This weekend, I’m counting on you to help me rally an
additional 15,000 citizen resisters to surpass our
300,000 goal!

++ Will your friends roll over, or resist?

…as Obama is moving at a shocking pace to
put his radical liberal agenda in place. I have to ask you, are
your friends going to roll over, or resist?

Do you know?

Take this weekend to find out. Forward this message to
30-35 conservative friends and encourage them to join
The Resistance with you by clicking here or copy and paste:

http://www.grassfire.net/r.asp?u=14417&PID=18678254

When talking with your friends, be clear that this move isn’t about
hatred, or an attempt to divide the nation. Carefully explain the
ideological differences and the need to confront and resist them.

Obama’s wealth redistribution and higher taxes? We Resist!

Government takeover of more of our lives? We Resist!

Open borders, amnesty and undermining of our culture? We Resist!

Taxpayer-funded abortions? We Resist!

The weakening of our military? We Resist!

Socialized health care? We Resist!

The end of traditional marriage? We Resist?

International taxation and “global citizenship”? We Resist!

The courts stacked with leftist judges? We Resist!

++ You are the last line of defense!

In simple terms, you and I are the last line of defense for our freedoms
and liberties.

Forward this message today, and help grow The Resistance-pushing us past
300,000 as we march toward 1 million!

Genius, Thy Name Is Obama

Genius, Thy Name Is Obama
by   Ann Coulter

With Time magazine comparing Obama to Jesus, I guess we should be relieved that, this week, liberals are only comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.

The one thing every liberal on TV seems to know about Lincoln is that he put rivals in his cabinet, as subtly indicated in the title to historian and plagiarist Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book: “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.” Like Lincoln, Goodwin is always open to contributions from her rivals, although Lincoln was better at crediting their words.

And hasn’t Obama talked to former rival Hillary about becoming his secretary of state? Hasn’t he had a sit-down with Sen. John McCain? Did I imagine this, or is he even now brokering peace talks between Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck?

Ergo: Obama is a genius.

Indeed, historians have just named Obama the best president-elect ever.

I don’t recall the media swooning when President George W. Bush reached out to rivals, such as Sen. Teddy Kennedy, who was asked to co-write Bush’s education bill. In fact, the way I remember it, Bush is liberals’ most hated president ever (only because they can’t remember George Washington or they’d hate him, too).

And yet no modern president has ever done more to bridge partisan divides and show respect to his opponents than George W. Bush. I do not say this with admiration; it is simply a fact.

Throughout the year and again in his convention speech during the 2000 presidential campaign, Gov. Bush bragged that he had “no stake in the bitter arguments of the last few years. I want to change the tone of Washington to one of civility and respect.”

(As a side note: Bush would never have been elected president if not for the “bitter arguments of the last few years,” in which Republicans exposed and impeached Bill Clinton, which then killed Al Gore’s presidential ambitions. So you’re welcome.)

But the point is: Bush was massively chummy with his enemies — Democrats, communists and the Congressional Black Caucus. So chummy that even they began to wonder if he was a little daft.

In his first few weeks in office, Bush met with more than 150 members of Congress, half of them Democrats — including five events with America’s leading liberal menace, Sen. Teddy Kennedy.

Bush’s very first social event at the White House was movie night with the Kennedy family to watch “Thirteen Days,” a falsely heroic portrayal of JFK’s disastrous handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis. This suggests to me that Obama’s first social move as president will have to be to invite Lindsey Graham over to a screening of “Larry the Cable Guy Saves Christmas.”

Naturally, Bush also had primary rival John McCain and his wife, Cindy, over to dinner at the White House.

Bush was the first president in memory to attend the congressional retreats of the opposing party. After two weeks in office, a Wall Street Journal column noted that Bush’s charm offensive was “disorienting the local Hatfields and McCoys.” (Again: You’re welcome.)

Bush even made a special point to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus upon taking office, which — given their feelings toward Bush — would be the equivalent of Obama holding a special meet-and-greet session with the upper management of the Ku Klux Klan.

Bush invited the Democratic black mayor of the District of Columbia to the White House, attended a majority black District church service and appointed the first black secretary of state.

And that was all before Feb. 1, 2001. (By the end of his presidency, he would have appointed the first two black secretaries of state.)

Though it was small potatoes after all that palling around with Teddy Kennedy, this is the same George W. Bush who had Muslim “spiritual leaders” to the White House a week after 9/11.

Bush also famously said of then-Russian president, former KGB agent Vladimir Putin, that he looked him in the eye and “was able to get a sense of his soul.”

(This made Bush’s critics almost as apoplectic as if he had said, “I looked into Putin’s eyes and, frankly, I just don’t trust the guy.” No matter what Bush did, liberals were incensed.)

As president, Bush scuttled the playing of “Hail to the Chief” in his honor and repeatedly reminded his staff to act humbly.

This is as opposed to Obama, who I believe is the first president-elect in history to have his own “Office of the President-elect” seal commissioned.

Like I always say, even if you don’t like the current president-elect, you should still have some respect for the office of the presidency-elect.

A People’s Bailout Or A Politician’s Bailout?

Thinking Anew and Acting Anew:

A People’s Bailout Or A Politicians’ Bailout?

By Newt Gingrich

America is about to enter the post-Bush era. Two recent events – the terrorist attack in Mumbai and the collapse of CitiBank – are vivid warnings about the complex, uncertain and potentially very dangerous time we are about to enter.

In the New York Times last week, columnist Tom Friedman made the following stunning point:

I spent Sunday afternoon brooding over a great piece of Times reporting by Eric Dash and Julie Creswell about Citigroup. Maybe brooding isn’t the right word. The front-page article, entitled “Citigroup Pays for a Rush to Risk,” actually left me totally disgusted.

“Why? Because in searing detail it exposed – using Citigroup as Exhibit A – how some of our country’s best-paid bankers were overrated dopes who had no idea what they were selling, or greedy cynics who did know and turned a blind eye. But it wasn’t only the bankers. This financial meltdown involved a broad national breakdown in personal responsibility, government regulation and financial ethics.

The Pelosi-Paulson Model of Crony Capitalism, Predatory Politicians and Micromanaging Bureaucrats

It is vital that every American understand the implications of Friedman’s last sentence. “The financial meltdown involved a broad breakdown in personal responsibility, government regulation and financial ethics.”

Righting such a systemic wrong requires far more than the Pelosi-Paulson model of crony capitalism, predatory politicians and micromanaging bureaucrats. In fact, in the face of the scale of collapse Friedman is describing, throwing trillions of the American peoples’ dollars into a cynical, corrupt, unethical system is exactly the wrong thing to be doing.

And the scale of the problem we face in the financial world is matched by the scale of the challenges we face in the national security world.

Both these challenges require new thinking.

“As Our Case is New We Must Act Anew and Think Anew”

I often quote President Abraham Lincoln at times like this because he captured the challenge so perfectly in his annual address to Congress on December 1, 1862:

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present and the occasional is piled high with difficulties, and we must rise to the occasion. As our case is new we must act anew and think anew. We must disenthrall ourselves and then we shall save our country.”

Lincoln’s call to think anew and act anew is especially important today because of the establishment nature of the team President-elect Obama is gathering. I write this with admiration and not with criticism.

The Danger of Looking to the Past in Times of Dramatic Change

President-elect Obama has done a good job of assembling sophisticated and highly respected teams for both national security and economic-financial policy.

Yet these two events — Mumbai and CitiBank — should remind us that knowledge about past systems and confident expectations based on past rules can actually be a detriment in dealing with periods of dramatic change. Peter Drucker wrote brilliantly about this problem in The Age of Discontinuities.  Drucker argued that one can be an expert on the period before the discontinuity and one can learn to be an expert on the new period emerging after the discontinuity but during the discontinuity itself there is a real danger of past knowledge becoming very misleading.

Drucker’s argument is illustrated expertly in David Halberstam’s study of Vietnam War policy making in Washington, The Best and the Brightest.  The new team being assembled by President-elect Obama would do well to heed its lessons.

A New Team of “Whiz Kids” In Washington DC?

Halberstam argues that it was precisely the confidence and the certainty of the team of “whiz kids” President Kennedy assembled which led them to make assumptions that proved to be false and to reject fact-based information which conflicted with their previous theories of how the world should work.  They rushed into policies in Vietnam confident that what Halberstam called their “brilliant policies that defied common sense” would enable them to impose their will on reality.  But with agony they learned that a harsh and unyielding reality was imposing its price in blood and treasure on America.

The new Obama teams for national security, finance, and the economy should ponder deeply the lessons of Drucker and Halberstam and question whether the theories and principles they are bringing into office are in fact the right solutions for today.

Mumbai and Citibank should be sufficient proof that the election of a new president has not changed any of the fundamental challenges facing America and threatening the civilized world.

How Much Damage Could a Mumbai-Style Attack Do To An American City?

The terrorist assault on Mumbai is a profound reminder that the world remains dangerous and there are many terrorists dedicated to destroying liberty and the rule of law as we know it.

For America, the scale and coordination of the Mumbai attack are a grim warning that our Homeland Security preparations are almost certainly inadequate.

If the Department of Homeland Security were to run a series of exercises in the first six months of 2009 replicating the Mumbai attack in cities like Boston, Charleston, Baltimore, Savannah, New Orleans, Houston, Long Beach, San Francisco and Seattle, it would be shocked to discover how much damage a ship-based assault team using simple weapons could inflict on an American city.

Pragmatic Decision Making Versus Institutional Reform

And if the Department of Homeland Security had the courage to go a step further and run tests involving simulated nuclear and biological weapons, the results would be so horrifying Americans would demand a crash program of preparedness beyond anything the current authorities can imagine.

The new Obama national security team is competent and professional and he is to be commended for his courage in recruiting Senator Clinton, Secretary Gates, and General Jim Jones. These three nominees are intelligent, tough minded, and hard working.

The greatest danger they will face is in their own belief that hard work and methodical pragmatic decision making can substitute for strategic planning and institutional reform.

America’s Immediate National Security Threats:

The fact is Mumbai is a grim reminder that more than seven years after the attack of 9/11 the United States and its allies have no solutions to the most difficult problems of terrorism on the planet.

•    The Saudis are still shipping money overseas to recruit for the most militant wing of Islam.
•    The Iranians are still trying to develop nuclear weapons so they can dominate the Persian Gulf and eliminate Israel from the face of the Earth.
•    Pakistan has more nuclear weapons and is more unstable today than it was in 2001.
•    The Taliban and its Pashtun allies in Northwestern Pakistan are as entrenched as they were in 2002 and are regaining strength in Afghanistan.
•    The erosion of Western rule of law under the onslaught of internal Islamic demands is continuing to spread through Great Britain, Holland, and other countries.

America’s Long-Term National Security Needs

The long-term challenge of China as an economic, scientific and technological competitor requires a national security based assessment of the requirements for change in America. If we are to remain the leading power in the world 25 years from now we have to reform litigation, taxation, regulation, education, health, energy, and infrastructure. The scale of change needed is greater than the New Deal but in a fundamentally different direction.

As Tom Friedman has written in other columns and in several best selling books, the United States needs an extraordinary level of achievement to remain the most productive and most creative country in the world.  And our national security leadership depends on precisely those characteristics as well.

Out:  Republican and Democrat.  In:  Honesty, Productivity, Creativity, Effectiveness

The key words describing the kind of reform that will solve our economic and national security challenges in the next decade will not be liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat.

They will be:

•    Honesty
•    Productivity
•    Creativity
•    Effectiveness

Next week I will focus on these four words and what they will mean for public policy in 2009.

Why Would You Give One More Dime of Your Taxpayer Money to a Company That Paid $400 Million to Name the New York Mets’ New Baseball Stadium “Citi Field”?

But for now, it’s worth stating what should be obvious:  The Pelosi-Paulson centralized government, politician defined, bureaucratically implemented bailout system fails to meet the test of any of these four words of reform. It will not lead to more honesty, productivity, creativity or effectiveness.

Remember the reason for Tom Friedman’s disgust over the article about Citigroup:  “Because in searing detail it exposed — using Citigroup as Exhibit A — how some of our country’s best-paid bankers were overrated dopes who had no idea what they were selling, or greedy cynics who did know and turned a blind eye.”

Why would you vote for another $350 billion to go to people and institutions which fit that condemnation?  Why would you give one more dime of your taxpayer money to a company that paid $400 million to name the New York Mets’ new baseball stadium “Citi Field”?

A Politicans’ Stimulus Package or a People’s Stimulus Package?

It’s the very bankruptcy of the current establishment which makes Congressman Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) tax holiday proposal so intriguing.

Congressman Gohmert has calculated that the amount Speaker Pelosi and Secretary Paulson will be advocating for the second installment of the bailout — $350 billion — is more than the amount needed to allow every American to have a two month tax holiday from both the FICA (Social Security and Medicare) and income tax.

Let me repeat that:  What Pelosi and Paulson are proposing to pour into crony capitalism is more than what it would cost to give every American taxpayer a total federal tax holiday for two months.

Which do you think would do more to get America growing again? $350 billion to failing managements, “overrated dopes” and “greedy cynics” or allowing every American to simply keep all their money for January and February?

The Money You Will Keep?  Your Monthly Income Multiplied by .66

For the working poor a FICA tax holiday (the $350 billion Paulson was going to send to Wall Street would simply be used to cover the revenue losses in the Treasury so Social Security and Medicare would not lose a penny) will be a dramatic increase in take home pay.  This one act will save more homes from bankruptcy than any centralized government bureaucratic red tape ridden system.

If you want to figure out how much Rep. Gohmert’s tax holiday would save you, Jed Babbin of Human Events has this advice:

Most Americans pay about 25 percent of their income in federal income tax and another 7.25 percent in FICA (Social Security and Medicare taxes). Computing how much money Gohmert’s tax holiday would leave in your family’s checkbook is very simple.

Take your monthly income (the gross amount shown on your pay stubs before tax and any other withholding) and multiply it by 0.66. That amount is roughly what Gohmert’s two-month tax holiday will leave in your pocket.

If a Two Month Tax Holiday Sounds Good, Why Not Six Months?

But there’s more.

Speaker Pelosi’s desire for an additional $700 billion Washington centered, government stimulus program would actually create the opportunity to offer an additional four months of FICA and income tax holiday for the American people.

If the American people knew they were going to have no personal federal taxes until July, 2009 how much debt could they pay down? How many mortgages would be saved? How many college tuitions could they pay? How much could they invest to rebuild their retirement accounts?

This is an example of what President Lincoln meant by “thinking anew.”

Send me a note at Newt@newt.org letting me know what you think of the tax holiday idea.

And if you like the idea of not paying federal taxes until July, 2009, please send this newsletter on to your friends and encourage them to speak out on these new solutions.

And remember, coming next week: The four key words to getting America moving again and how to apply them to federal, state, and local government.

Ben Stein’s Confession

I can only hope we find God again before it is too late!!

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.


My confession:
I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish.  And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees..  I don’t feel threatened.  I don’t feel discriminated against. That’s what they are:  Christmas trees.
It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me.  I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto.  In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year.  It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu .  If people want a creche, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.
I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians.  I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period.  I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country.  I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.
Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him?  I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too.  But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different:  This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.
Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her ‘How could God let something like this happen?’ (regarding Katrina) Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. 
She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.  And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.  How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?’ In light of recent events…  terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.  I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.  Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school.  The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself.  And we said OK.
Then Dr.  Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr Spock’s son committed suicide).  We said an expert should know what he’s talking about.  And we said OK.
Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.  Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.  I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’ Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.  Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. 
Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.  Pass it on if you think it has merit.  If not then just discard it…  no one will know you did.  But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. 
My Best Regards,
Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein

A Must Read before Voting…


This letter is so well written, it may even make some of his supporters think twice; or maybe not.  Nonetheless it has 7 remarkably great questions to the type of man he is.  I don’t know who Mark Gregg is but I am so glad this eloquent letter is circulating . . . .please help keep it going.

Dear Mr. Obama,

It is August 30, 2008.  My name is Mark Gregg.  I am a 50 something conservative white male.  I have followed your campaign closely, including the speeches you and others made at the democratic national convention.  I am respectfully providing you with seven simple (probably shallow) reasons why I could never vote for you.  I believe my opinion is shared by many people.  While there may not be quite enough to prevent you from becoming president of this nation, I do think there is an awakening to the fact that you are not a (the) messiah that the media and liberal Hollywood entertainers are trying to portray you.

1. I hear your mantra of change, change, change.  Yet, you picked a long term, liberal, Washington insider (Joe Biden) to be your running mate.  This is NOT change.  It is a move that hypocritically refutes the very thing you supposedly stand for.  Your campaign then slammed McCain for picking Sarah Palin, apparently, because she is NOT a Washington insider.  She is a maverick who cleaned-up Alaska ‘s quagmire of political scandals.  Which way is it, Barack?  Is it okay for you to pick a Washington insider under the mantra of ‘change’, but not okay for John McCain to pick a smart, aggressive, reformer?

2. You have the single most liberal voting record in the senate.  This indicates to me and others like me that you may very well be an angry black man seeking to punish our country for sins of a different generation.  I am not racist. I have some biases just like you and every other human alive.  Unlike the democratic party who claims to be for the minority (but their record heavily refutes this), I will give any person who truly needs help, help.  I married a ‘minority’ girl 35 years ago (she is Hispanic) and have seen the evils of prejudice first hand.  However, I have also seen my wife and my children and others in her family throw off the veil of self imposed prejudicial bondage and move ahead.  They love our country and do not view themselves any different than I view myself as a citizen of this country. Your lovely wife so disappointed people like me during this campaign when she stated it was the first time she had ever been proud of this country.  She apparently never noticed the massive aid we give dozens of other countries.  She apparently never noticed the sacrifice of literally millions of veterans who helped make this country a free nation and helped liberate other nations from brutal dictators such as Adolf Hitler.  She apparently does not remember that she attended ivy league universities with scholarship money that ultimately (at least some of it) was paid for by our taxes.  This troubles me more than you know.  She is an angry black woman who appears to not like her country very much.  I don’t want her representing me to the rest of the world.

3. You claim Christianity but apparently do not realize that the Bible teaches that he who does not work, does not eat.  The Bible does not say or even suggest that he who CANNOT work, should not eat.  Yet, your liberal policies reward people who are capable of working, but choose to not do so.  This bothers me. I know that if you are elected our taxes will spiral upwards.  You should heed the words of Winston Churchill:  ‘We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.’  If I like anything about you, it is your campaign promise to balance the federal budget.  Unfortunately, we have heard this a huge number of times from a number of different politicians and we realize that when you energize the very liberal Nancy Pelosi, Robert Byrd, Ted Kennedy, etc, etc, and the many other democrats like them, a balanced budget will never, ever happen on
your watch.

4. During your question and answer session with Rick Warren of Saddleback Church your answer concerning the question of where does life begin, stunned me:  ‘Above your pay grade?’  Does this mean when something bad happens as President of this nation that you are going to look at your salary to determine if you can respond?  I am sorry, but this was the most serious gaffe I have seen you make.  Frankly, it shows me that you are pandering in the most obvious manner.  You will choose your words not from your heart, but from an agenda that I believe is still hidden from the American people.

5. If anything stands out about you it is probably your appeasement mentality.  In this era of rampant, radical Islamic extremism and with the latest stunt pulled by the re-energized Russian government, I am not sure appeasement is healthy.  I again revert to the words of Winston Churchill:  ‘An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.’

6. You and your party tacitly believe that a 13 or 14 year old girl must have the parents approval to have the school nurse provide them with a Tylenol when they have a headache at school.  Yet, this same girl can become pregnant and the school can skirt her off to a clinic and abort the child in her body without the parents knowing or being notified.  This scares the hell out of me.  You have two little girls.  Would you be upset if this happened to them and you were not informed?  Then why do you stand for this?  It makes no sense to me.

7. My seventh and final point (for now) is your supporters.  I have watched the Hollywood entertainers that support you, systematically embrace Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and others like him.  I see the continuous smut and garbage produced by Hollywood , the very people who promote you the most vigorously.  It is not a positive point to me and others like me to see these over-paid, bizarre, poor examples of human existence fawn over you and push you and your liberal agenda as hard as they do. The way I see it, when the devil is for you, we shouldn’t question whether or not we should be against you.

In closing, I just want you to know that you scare me.  I cannot vote for you.  It is not because of your skin color.  It is because these items I’ve listed and many, many others like them.  Do not claim that my dislike for you is race based.  It is because I do not feel you have the best interests of this nation at heart.

Respectfully,

Mark A. Gregg

Remember FREEDOM!!!

What happens when we elect the colleague of terrorists to the White House?

What happens when we elect the colleague of terrorists
to the White House?

Will the terrorists get a night in the Lincoln Bedroom?

Let’s never find out.

Dear Fellow American:

We live in a world where terrorists want to destroy us.  Therefore, how can YOU, with a clear conscience, elect a President with close, documented ties to a terrorist?

“Trust” will show these voters that in 1995, Barack Hussein Obama partnered with known terrorist William Ayers.  Ayers is a man who bombed the Pentagon and then said he didn’t do enough.

Our message is so important that Bill O’Reilly recently introduced “Never Find Out” as a news item on The O’Reilly Factor. Pollster Frank Luntz then turned to Bill and said, “Let Freedom Ring hit a home run” with this ad. Now, we want to share it with millions of Americans on radio and national cable in addition to the already-bought broadcast television in the battleground states of Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Obama has often said that Ayers was “just a guy in your neighborhood”, but The Wall Street Journal tells us that Obama and William Ayers worked as a team on a $100 million radical education project.  And they must be right, because when Obama decided to run for the Senate, he announced his candidacy at home of William Ayers!

Obama also collaborated with Bernadette Dorhn, a woman who was responsible for the death of two police officers and two armored truck guards.

How can we trust Senator Obama to be President of the United States?  His judgment should be called into question by EVERY American.

Just this year Obama said, Americans, “when they get bitter, cling to guns or religion…”

Is that how you want to be perceived by YOUR President?

For twenty years, Barack Obama sat in the pews of a Chicago church led by Reverend Jeremiah Wright who said, “the Government gives them the drugs, then builds bigger prisons then sings God Bless America.”No, No,  No, not “God Bless America“,    “God damn America.”

Ask yourself this question:

If this is the type of rhetoric that Obama heard every Sunday for most of his adult life, can you imagine what the outcome will be on the morning after Inauguration Day?

Don’t let that happen.  Please, America, let’s never find out what damage an Obama presidency could do to all that we treasure about America.

We need your help TODAY to stop Obama from being elected President.

Obama once stated that he would not raise taxes on people earning $250,000.  However, he voted in the Senate to let the Bush tax cuts expire.

What do you call that?  A TAX INCREASE!

If we elect Barack Obama, you will not be standing on the checkout line in your favorite gift store this holiday season; you will instead be standing on the unemployment line.

Obama’s total disregard for fiscal responsibility has helped create the devastation that has led us to the biggest financial crisis in American history.   He is part of the problem.

Even the liberal media has stated that, “Obama benefitted politically from the financial crisis.”

Guess who received campaign contributions from the people who drove Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae into the ground?

Barack Obama, Christopher Dodd and John Kerry.  Can we really TRUST him now?

Who will be Obama’s financial advisors in his cabinet?

  • Franklin Raines, who cooked the books at Fannie Mae and walked away with $90 million. Do you want him as Secretary of the Treasury?
  • Jim Johnson, who was on his Vice Presidential search committee, he was the former CEO of Fannie Mae.  Would you want him to be appointed Director of the Office of Management and Budget by a President Obama?
