Cap(Tax) and Trade (Tax)

While I like to do my own writing, this one is so well written that I don't think I have anything to add to it. So here it is:

Beginning with this post will be an overview of the Cap and Trade Bill or as
it is better known in more conservative circles, Crap and Tax Bill. The
Bill has passed the house, in the dark of night and right before a recess
which seems to be the norm for the leftist regime currently ruling Congress.

The Bill is being stalled in the Senate due to the so called Immigration
Reform Bill or as is better known in conservative circles, Buying Votes for
Democrats. The Bill is being presented to the American people as a Climate
Bill which is a way of hiding the fact that it is a TAX BILL, pure and
simple that will raise the cost to every man, woman and child in the US.

Today's post will take a look at some of the cost and the HIDDEN COST within
the bill. The administration is touting the bill as costing only a small
amount to each family but the true cost, just as with Health Care are well

In future post we will look at the Bill section by section and hopefully
educated the uninformed on just how negatively this Bill will affect each
and every person in this country. Yes, the reading may be long at times and
a bit dry but it is important that we understand what is happening to
America and the results that it will have on our country.

Here is the article. It may be considered longer than some posts, but it is well worth your time if you care about saving our country. Thank you.

I Have A Free House For You

While we had all been putting our time and treasure into stopping the health insurance debacle, even though it passed anyway, below is a very humorous 'reality check' that almost everyone can grasp. Except those Obamabots. Have a nice day.

I was in my neighborhood restaurant this morning and was seated behind a group of jubilant individuals celebrating the successful passing of the recent health care bill. I could not finish my breakfast. This is what ensued:

They were a diverse group of several races and both sexes. I heard the young man exclaim, “Isn’t Obama like Jesus Christ? I mean, after all, he is healing the sick.” The young woman enthusiastically proclaimed, “Yeah, and he does it for free. I cannot believe anyone would think that a free market would work for health care. They are all crooks and thieves and don’t deserve all of that money.” Another said, ‘The stupid Republicans want us all to starve to death so they can inherit all of the power. Obama should be made a Saint for what he did for those of us less fortunate.” At this, I had had enough.

I arose from my seat, mustering all the restraint I could find, and approached their table. “Please excuse me; may I impose upon you for one moment?” They smiled and welcomed me to the conversation. I stood at the end of their table, smiled as best I could and began an experiment.

“I would like to give one of you my house. It will cost you no money and I will pay all of the expenses and taxes for as long as you live there. Anyone interested?” They looked at each other in astonishment. “Why would you do something like that?” asked a young man, “There isn’t anything for free in this world.” They began to laugh at me, as they did not realize this man had just made my point. “I am serious, I will give you my house for free, no money what so ever. Anyone interested?” In unison, a resounding “Hell Yeah” fills the room.

“Since there are too many of you, I will have to make a choice as to who receives this money free bargain.” I noticed an elderly couple was paying attention to the spectacle unfolding before their eyes, the old man shaking his head in apparent disgust. “I tell you what; I will give it to the one of you most willing to obey my rules.” Again, they looked at one another, an expression of bewilderment on their faces. The perky young woman asked, “What are the rules?” I smiled and said, “I don’t know. I have not yet defined them. However, it is a free home that I offer you.” They giggled amongst themselves, the youngest of which said, “What an old coot. He must be crazy to give away his home. Go take your meds, old man.” I smiled and leaned into the table a bit further. “I am serious, this is a legitimate offer.” They gaped at me for a moment.

“Hell, I’ll take it you old fool. Where are the keys?” boasted the youngest among them. “Then I presume you accept ALL of my terms then?” I asked. The elderly couple seemed amused and entertained as they watched from the privacy of their table. “Oh hell yeah! Where do I sign up?” I took a napkin and wrote, “I give this man my home, without the burden of financial obligation, so long as he accepts and abides by the terms that I shall set forth upon consummation of this transaction.” I signed it and handed it to the young man who eagerly scratched out his signature. “Where are the keys to my new house?” he asked in a mocking tone of voice. All eyes were upon us as I stepped back from the table, pulling the keys from pocket and dangling them before the excited new homeowner.

“Now that we have entered into this binding contract, witnessed by all of your friends, I have decided upon the conditions you are obligated to adhere from this point forward. You may only live in the house for one hour a day. You will not use anything inside of the home. You will obey me without question or resistance. I expect complete loyalty and admiration for this gift I bestow upon you. You will accept my commands and wishes with enthusiasm, no matter the nature. Your morals and principles shall be as mine. You will vote as I do, think as I do and do it with blind faith. These are my terms. Here are your keys.” I reached the keys forward and the young man looked at me dumb founded.

“Are you out of your freaking mind? Who would ever agree to those ridiculous terms?” the young man appeared irritated. “You did when you signed this contract before reading it, understanding it and with the full knowledge that I would provide my conditions only after you committed to the agreement.” Was all I said. The elderly man chuckled as his wife tried to restrain him. I was looking at a now silenced and bewildered group of people. “You can shove that stupid deal up you’re a** old man, I want no part of it” exclaimed the now infuriated young man. “You have committed to the contract, as witnessed by all of your friends; you cannot get out of the deal unless I agree to it. I do not intend to let you free now that I have you ensnared. I am the power you agreed to. I am the one you blindly and without thought chose to enslave yourself to. In short, I am your Master.” At this, the table of celebrating individuals became a unified group against the unfairness of the deal.

After a few moments of unrepeatable comments and slurs, I revealed my true intent. “What I did to you is what this administration and congress did to you with the health care legislation. I easily suckered you in and then revealed the real cost of the bargain. Your folly was in the belief that you can have something you did not earn; that you are entitled to that which you did not earn; that you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. Your only chance of freedom is if your new Master gives it unto you. A freedom that is given can also be taken away; therefore, it is not freedom.” With that, I tore up the napkin and placed it before the astonished young man. “This is the nature of your new health care legislation.”

I turned away to leave these few in thought and contemplation and was surprised by applause. The elderly gentleman, who was clearly entertained, shook my hand enthusiastically and said, “Thank you Sir, these kids don’t understand Liberty these days.” He refused to allow me to pay my bill as he said, “You earned this one, it is an honor to pickup the tab.” I shook his hand in thanks, leaving the restaurant somewhat humbled, and sensing a glimmer of hope for my beloved country.

Use reason, it is the closest you are going to get to Godly conduct

Video: Herman Cain at Atlanta Tea Party 4/15/10

I really like this gentleman, and wow what a powerful speaker he is. I gave money to his last campaign, but I was unaware he is still running. I'll have to open my checkbook again. I am asking you to do the same. Thanks.

Politics In 1948: Video

Below is a video that was put together in the year 1948 reposted by the Average Family Guy.

In case the video isn't working, here is the link at where you can watch it.

Search your hearts. The same thing that is happening now is nothing new. It has been tried throughout history. Which side of history are you on?

Hat tip: Ken who sent me this video, and to National Juggernaut for posting it in the first place.

Long Beach Patriots: Tax Day Tea Party 2010

Hi everyone. How are you feeling? A little down? Don't be. We are going to try another method than just rallies. We are going to give most of these critters in Congress their pink slips. We can do this, but we need your help.

The Tea Party is going to be held between 130 Cherry Avenue and Junipero Street. We shall also be on the main road, Ocean Blvd, at the later half of our event.

I need some volunteers. I've been shy in the past, but I really do need you. What we need are a video camera, decorations (ribbons, balloons, or whatever you want to bring as long as it's patriotic and not racist or insulting), folding chairs if you'd like to sit, a card table to place the sign-in sheet and petitions, patriotic music (and CD player) including the Star Spangled Banner, snacks if you want them or to share, and whatever else you can think of that I have not put on this list.

Many times I have heard and also wondered, what can I do to help besides attend Tea Parties? It is too late to run for Central Committees in your area, but there are still many things you can do to make sure this town, state, and country remembers its founding.

We can go to city council meetings, we can join our federation of women's groups in our area, we can go out and get people to vote, we can educate people on what is actually in these bills (it's nice to have the bill with you, or at least the part you are describing), we can work in the campaign headquarters of the people we support as volunteers, we can have a candidate's row where we can ask the candidates direct questions politely, and much more. Maybe you could think of something? Maybe we could get them to sign a "NO NEW TAXES" pledge? Hmm.

About the time and all those other little details, haha:

DATE: Thursday, April 15, 2010
TIME: 5-7 PM
PLACE: Between 130 Cherry Street and Junipero Street (near Ocean Blvd), Bixby Park (sometimes called Cherry Park).
PARKING: There should be good parking.

View Larger Map

If you are planning to go, please e-mail me so I can give you my cell number in case you get lost. Hey, it's always a good idea just in case. For you men, COME ON! We all know you've been lost before! haha.

I will also need everyone to be aware that the Left is not happy with effectiveness. They are planning to go to each Tea Party and try to blend in so they can make us look they way they think we are. We know we are not as they describe, so if you see anyone you think is here to cause trouble, let me know. Do not talk to them, do not argue with them. Let me handle it. I have already made the police aware of the situation, so they know how to deal with it. It is their job, and we maintain our good reputation.

Last year two of them showed up and were very polite. They stayed their distance, and they did not say anything. No yelling, no profanity, nothing. This is also their right. If they are like that, leave them alone. They have the same rights as we do. I just wanted to cover this with you. You will be safe. They've never showed up again. We've been fortunate. This is just in case.

If it begins to rain, here's the plan. At 130 Cherry Ave, that is where the laboratories are. There is also shelter overhead on the outside. There is also shelter behind the stage. All of us can fit (at least the size of the last few, haha), so watch for the weather report. Come prepared.

Finally, let's all have a great time. From 5-6 we will hear people speaking, and from 6-7 we shall bring our flags and signs (please no personal signs, this is bigger than one person!) to Ocean Blvd and Cherry Ave. Last time we had very much support, so we should do this everytime. People need to see us.

Another thing that's been done differently this time is we advertized in the Pennysaver! Both print and online. Everyone have a great day, and keep your chin up. They have not defeated us yet, nor will they!

EDITOR'S NOTE: I'm thinking about switching it to having our signs and flags on Ocean Blvd first, then having the speakers. What do you guys think? (I'm thinking this might get everyone jazzed up.) I'd appreciate all opinions on this. Does anyone have any experience in this area? Is this a good/bad idea? Thanks.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again. Digg! Digg!

God Bless The Children-Tea Party

This 11 year old's words about freedom are very moving. They are not what you expect, but I'm sure you thought and felt them, too. God bless the children.

Long Beach Patriots Ad At Pennysaver!

This year's Tax Day Tea Party shall have one advantage that last year's did not. It is advertized! Tax Day Tea Party, 130 Cherry Avenue, 5-7 pm, 4/15/2010. If you have questions, please email me. (Don't be lazy. All you have to do is click on my "View my profile". *j/k*)

This time I refuse to be shy. The reason the other Tea Parties are so small with little to offer is because I cannot walk well and have no car. These are some of the things we need.

A Table for the sign-in sheet, anything you may want to sell (I get a %), etc.
Video camera to film the whole event.
Security guards (big dudes) to keep their eyes out for party crashers. Do not touch them. That's what they want.
A plan on how to deal with Leftists.
Speakers. It could by you!
Music that everyone can hear.

We have read some sites that are planning to crash every Tea Party to make us look as they see us, racists, homophobes, etc. It's like asking, "When did you stop beating your wife?". Do not give into the temptation of bopping them on the nose. There shall be NO violence. If you lose it, you will unfortunately be asked to leave as well. Otherwise, it isn't fair. This would suck, so don't do it! Besides, I am going to alert the police so they can have our backs.

Regardless, we are going to have a grand time. We are going to enjoy one another, share ideas, stand on Ocean Blvd and Cherry Ave with our signs and listen to all those horns a-honkin' after we listen to the speakers. Yes, it is going to be fun. Mostly because YOU are there. :)

Hope to see ya there!

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again. Digg! Digg!
