Independence Day — or Dependence Day?

With the recent Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Health Care Act (aka “Obamacare”), the federal government will mandate all Americans to purchase health insurance in the name of The Common Good, or be taxed a penalty for failing to do so. Repeal of the act is still an option — but only if we the people stand up, and vote to remove social progressives from both the White House and Congress on Election Day, November 6.

Today, America stands on the edge of tyranny — just as the original 13 American colonies stood 236 years ago, when the British empire levied taxes upon them without representation in Parliament.

236 years ago today, 56 men stood up, and against all odds, declared their independence from the British crown to build a free country we know today as the United States. Are we willing to stand up today and do our part to remain free?

Liberty or tyranny. The choice is yours NOW — as it was then.

Choose wisely.

Justice Served, At Last

Osama bin Laden is dead.

“Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Usama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda.”
– President Obama

“This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.”
– President George W. Bush

A heartfelt thanks goes out to our military for securing justice for the victims of the 9/11/01 attacks, the USS Cole bombing, and the US Embassy bombings in Africa.

To all of our fighting men and women in uniform: America salutes you tonight! May God bless you and keep you safe.

Response to a Tragedy

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”

–Ronald Reagan

Heartfelt prayers go out to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and family, the family of Judge John Roll, the family of Christina Taylor Green, the family of Dorwin Stoddard, the family of Dorothy Murray, and the family of Dorothy Schneck.

Also remember Gabe Zimmerman, Ron Barber, and Pam Simon in your prayers.

Send your condolences

Shield and support the mourning families

“Green Jobs” Defined

Of the many TV commercials aired during yesterday’s Super Bowl broadcast, the “Green Police” ad for Audi sparked some tongue-in-cheek controversy:

Can it happen here? In some ways, it is already happening, albeit not to the extreme where hardcore environmentalists are pushing for “eco-crimes” to be fall under criminal prosecution.

What do you think?

Fear and Loathing of Las Vegas, Continued

President Obama seems to be quite content to bet other people’s money on a game of Keynesian Craps, but he just couldn’t resist taking another swipe at the city that I (and of course, a multitude of those who campaigned and voted for him in droves) call home:

“When times are tough, you tighten your belts,” The Hill quoted Obama saying today at a town hall meeting in New Hampshire.” You don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don’t blow a bunch of cash in Vegas when you’re trying to save for college.”

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he spoke to the White House following Obama’s comments.

“While the President is correct that people saving for college need to be fiscally responsible, the President needs to lay off Las Vegas and stop making it the poster child for where people shouldn’t be spending their money,” Reid said in a statement.

Other state and local politicians aren’t too happy with the Gambler-In-Chief’s snide remarks either.

This time, because of Harry Reid’s response (mainly in part that he’s dependent upon the President’s assistance in the re-election battle of his life), Obama issued a tepid explanation.

Maybe Obama should start making amends by tightening his own damn belt and spending more time thinking about the effect his careless words may have on the Nevada economy. Failure to do so may result in three congressional Democrats finding themselves in the unemployment lines with their fellow down-and-out Las Vegans after November.

I Don’t Know About You, But…

I’ve grown tired of the groveling.

We get it. You’re an ideologue who thinks he isn’t one.

You say you know what the people want, yet you ignore the voices of the people.

You’re angry at the judicial branch for scuttling a restrictive campaign law that you yourself chose not to follow.

And now, you say you want to control spending and whittle down the deficit by proposing an outlandish budget plan with more tax hikes and even more spending.

We’re stuck with you for the next three years. We get that. We’ll cope until your term ends.

But, for God’s sake man, stop with the groveling already. It makes you look weak.

A head of state bows to NO ONE.

If you can work on nailing down that precision commander-in-chief salute, you can also try harder to greet others without losing control of your spine.

Oh, and learn to speak extemporaneously too, lest you be accused of being a puppet.

ACORN: PWNED!

Since the other networks were busy falling prostrate before Barack Almighty, I watched Fox News Sunday instead. As you can see below, ACORN’s Bertha Lewis really didn’t want to talk about it:

Why watch the same old sales pitch on five different channels when you can watch something new and informative?

ACORN Corruption In San Diego

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles strike California gold again with their fifth video investigation of the ACORN offices in National City, CA.

If you’re looking for trendy boutique hotels, an exploding culinary scene, or visiting the local ACORN to get your underage prostitutes smuggled across the Mexican border, you’re in the right place.

And find it they did:

In response to the videos, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has called for an investigation of ACORN’s activities statewide. Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has also directed his state government to halt all funding to ACORN.

On the federal level, the U.S. Senate voted 83-7 to cut off funding of the ACORN housing program. Seven senators have a lot of explaining to do.

O’Keefe and Giles are to be commended for doing the hard work that the mainstream media refuses to do.
