Congress

Alright!  We booted out the Dems and have sent what I believe is a VERY clear message to those socialist libs and this marxist President – STOP!  But, I would agree with Marco Rubio here – this does not mean that we embrace the Republicans now.  What this means is that we spent the last 4 years cleaning out many of the RINO’s and have put in some true fiscal conservatives.  We also send them up there with the message – WE HAVE OUR EYES ON YOU AND YOU BETTER LISTEN TO US THIS TIME!

I spent all night watching the returns and listening to the pundits explain the results.  Something I haven’t heard anyone say yet is that the GOP is now in a win-win situation – provided they don’t screw this up.  We put the GOP back in control to reign in government spending, reduce the size of government, reduce taxes, and place regulations (or de-regulations) that will get this economy growing and spur job growth.  Those liberal Keynesian policies have proven NOT to work.  It is absolutely a GREAT thing that the Republicans did not take the Senate this time around.  The Republicans still don’t have full ownership of the outcome of the policies they implement.  Two-thirds of this administration is still controlled by the Democrats.  The good news is that the Republicans are at the most important point of the process – the bill creation point.

What the GOP needs to do is force the hands of the Dems in the Senate and also the Obumbler.  The Republicans can’t lose if they control the message and continuously communicate with the American people.  They need to put up some very clean, clear, and concise bills then come to the public with them first.  They need to pass a bill that balances the budget and then come to the American people and say – “Look. We passed this bill in the house.  It balances the budget in Washington without additional growth to the government or additional taxes on the people.  If the Senate doesn’t pass it and if the President doesn’t sign it…here are the consequences….”  They need to do that with every single bill that is passed before they send it to the Senate.

The Senate has 41 seats up for re-election in 2012.  The Democrats in the Senate will have a choice to make – either side with the GOP on these bills – or risk losing big time in 2012.  Most likely, they will concede.  After all, they are politicians and the only thing that politicians care about is keeping their jobs and their power.  Any Democrat that doesn’t go along with the House bills – the Republicans will come out in 2012 and say…”We provided the American with a VERY clear plan.  We heard you loud and clear in 2010.  We passed the bills that YOU the American people asked for.  You sent the message that you wanted this administration to stop and reverse course.  These Democrats apparently did not get that message.  The only way we can fulfill the wishes of our electorate is for you to give us the power in the Senate now.  We need your votes to remove these Democrats that stood in YOUR way.”

If the libs in the Senate do follow along with the GOP plans – then Obumbler has a choice…either sign the bills and do what is actually right for America and we the people – or stick to his marxist ideology and veto the bills on his principle only.  If Obumbler vetoes any bills passed by both the House and the Senate – then he will be committing political suicide.  This also means that the GOP can put up an candidate and that candidate will win.  It will be up to we the people to make sure the GOP puts up the right candidate.  Personally, I hope that Obambi sticks to his guns.  The Republicans can then come out in 2012 and say – “Look, we got bipartisan support on these bills and they were passed in both the House and the Senate.  Congress heard your message in 2010 and we listened.  We are still listening to YOU.  This President is still trying to govern against the will of the people.  Please help us to help YOU by voting him out.”

Like I said – this is a win-win situation for the GOP – as long as they don’t screw it up.

Hi All – I figured with the 2010 mid-term elections upon us and the races getting tighter – it would be a good idea to remind everyone of how your Representatives and Senators voted on the Five Major Key Issues that have helped lead this country down the road to socialism: TARP, The Stimulus Bill, Obamacare, Crap and Trade, and Financial Reform.

First – the Big One – Obamacare

Here is the Roll Call Vote on Obamacare

Next – Crap and Trade

Here is the Roll Call Vote on Cap and Trade

Next – Financial Reform

Here is the Roll Call Vote on Financial Reform Senate

Here is the Roll Call Vote on Financial Reform House

Next up – The Stimulus Bill

Here is the Roll Call Vote on ARRA Senate

Here is the Roll Call Vote on ARRA House

Finally – TARP

Here is the Roll Call Vote on TARP Senate

Here is the Roll Call Vote on TARP House

Hopefully, this is a great resource for you all as you head to the voting booths in a couple weeks (or within days for those of you doing early voting) – please – we MUST hold ALL of these politicians’ feet to the fire on these bills.  We were already heading down the wrong path before Obamadeenajad – these bills solidified it.  Please pass this post on to others so that they too can see how their Representatives and Senators voted on these economically devastating bills.

And – I need to plug one particular politician – Sean Bielat.  He is opposing Barney Franks up in Mass.  He is closing in on Barney and has Barney running scared – so much so that Barney Franks had to donate $200,000 of his own money to his own campaign.  Sean needs some help – please donate here and let’s all help him to retire Barney.  He’s been there 30 years already.  He’s done enough damage to this country. I did my part and donated – now it’s your turn to help RETIRE BARNEY.

h/t to my friend Jan for sending this to me.  This is an actual article from a newspaper regarding a Hispanic boycott of Caucasian owned businesses in Victoria, Texas.  Those Congresscritters in DC need to read this.

I checked it out on the Internet and came across a couple sites that say this is a hoax.  Well, it is a pretty elaborate hoax if someone really went out of their way to create an actual newspaper article.  In all fairness – I could not locate an actual newspaper website that ran this story.  Regardless – this is absolutely hilarious – and – it wouldn’t surprise me if it were true.

Okay – who will be the first to call me a racist? :)   I guess if I don’t want people coming in to my country illegally, committing countless crimes, using all of our taxpayer resources (health care, food stamps, welfare, public housing, etc.) – then by all means – I guess I am a racist!  It’s pretty sad that if I were to sneak in to Mexico in the dark of night and could not prove I was a Mexican citizen – I would be thrown directly in jail for 2 years – yet – when these illegals invade our country by the millions – they get taxpayer funded social services and a free education and they get tax-free jobs.

Support the Arizona Illegal Immigrant Bill – Boycott The D.C. Politicians and kick them all out in November!

Just a quick reminder – for any of you who haven’t seen that stupid-assed Ed Begley commercial – the census begins next month. According to Article 1, Section 2 of the United States Constitution:

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.) (The previous sentence in parentheses was modified by the 14th Amendment, section 2.) The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct…

They are NOT allowed to ask you any other question(s) other than – How Many People Live Here?  They don’t need to know your name, your age, your sex, your race, your income, etc etc.  The ONLY purpose of the Census according to the U.S. Constitution is for the apportionment of Congress.  All this other crap they use in order to grow the size of the government is entirely unconstitutional and not allowed.

Educate your neighbors as well.  I was a census taker in 2000 before I really understood the Constitution and our Founding Fathers.  If you only fill out the section that is required by law and the constitution – they send out Census takers to your house.  If you aren’t home, the instructions are for you to knock on the neighbor’s doors and ask the neighbors if they can fill in the blanks you didn’t.  Tell your neighbors not to offer up any information to the census takers – they aren’t obligated to answer any questions on your behalf.

If it’s not bad enough they are spending over $15 Billion of our tax dollars to do this – an audit has found there has already been a waste and abuse of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of our tax dollars – well before the census even actually begins.  Gotta love our big government – can’t get anything right at all – and we really think they’ll be able to accurately count all 300+ million people in this country without wasting more of our money?

They are trying to make the claim that the patriotic thing to do is to completely fill out the census – when – the reality is – the actual and true patriotic thing to do is follow the constitution and ONLY provide them the total number of people living in your household – and nothing else.

Apparently, the political elite progressives in D.C. think they are smarter than WE THE PEOPLE and we just  don’t understand anything.  Apparently, they believe we are too stupid to understand they are doing what is best for WE THE PEOPLE and that we just don’t get it.  Apparently, those idiots don’t understand that 65% of this country have shouted from the tops of our lungs to stay away from our health insurance.

I am on Obama’s Organizing for America e-mail list.  This is the e-mail I received on Saturday – just one day after he publicly announced that health reform is dead on the hill.

An alarming new study shows that health care costs increased last year at the fastest rate in more than a half century.

Health care spending rose to an estimated $2.5 trillion in 2009, or $8,047 per person — and is now projected to nearly double by 2019. If we don’t act, this growing burden will mean more lost jobs, more families pushed into bankruptcy, and more crushing debt for our nation.

The conclusion is clear: This isn’t a problem we can kick down the road for another decade — or even another year. We need to pass health reform now.

First, the most obvious thing in this e-mail is it does no provide the citation of this “new study.”  Second, the reason that health care spending is on the rise is due to Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP. Private sector spending is 55% of total spending (this includes private insurance and self-pay).  Right now, government spending on health care is 6.7% of GDP and it is expected (without factoring in for this bullshit bill) government spending on healthcare will increase to 18.2% of GDP by 2050.  We’re seeing the effects of that now.  Private sector spending will decrease while government sector increases.  These tactics by the progressives are nothing but fear mongering.  Government run healthcare continues to increase because of fraud, waste, and abuse.  Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP lose $100′s of billions every year due mostly to fraud.  Healthcare fraud in the government run system is so prolific that organized crime is now involved – that alone is a $60 billion/year industry.  You don’t see this in private sector health care because private insurers employ resources that actually search out and combat this kind of fraud.

Despite our pleas with the government to stop – and despite the fact the GOP is taking Democrat seats left and right and are poised to completely take control of Congress in November – Obama came out saying this yesterday

“Just in case there’s any confusion out there, let me be clear. I am not going to walk away from health insurance reform,” Obama said, in one of his most feisty speeches since his 2008 election campaign.

“I’m not going to walk away from the American people. I’m not going to walk away on this challenge. I’m not going to walk away on any challenge.’

I guess we’re just too stupid to take care of ourselves and this idiot President is going to keep drilling it in our heads until we finally get it.  Well – we’re up to his challenge also.  I say – bring it on idiot – this will seal the doom for the progressives once and for all.


You probably thought I was joking!  I’m dead serious.

h/t to JammieWearingFool – you have to read this post – here’s just a snippet

Well they have taken the next illogical step, mainly proposing a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment. The amendment is being cosponsored by Donna Edwards (D-MD) and John Conyers (D-MI) among others.

Jammie has the links and the rest of the story.  I told you before – these progressive Democrats really hate our country and our constitution. If you live in either of those states – let both Conyers and Edwards know that if they continue to push this thing – you will exercise your right to free speech and let everyone know what they are up to – and then you’ll exercise your right to vote their asses out next time around.

If this gets any traction – we all need to make sure we get on the horn with our representatives and senators and tell them they better not mess with our most fundamental of all rights – those contained in the First Amendment.  You appeal the First Amendment and it opens the doors for the government to take over EVERY aspect of our lives.

For those of you who may have forgotten – here is EVERYTHING that is in The First Amendment

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

These idiots are treading in some very dangerous waters here.

UPDATE - I’ve decided to go a little further here for my challenged progressive readers.  First – here is the Citizens United SCOTUS Decision (opens up a .pdf).  I have read the entire 183 page decision – I suggest you do as well.  Justice Steven’s Dissenting Opinion is just as long as The Affirmative Decision.  Justice Thomas also has a partial dissenting opinion at the tail end.  The decision does not reverse 100 years of decided law.  It only reversed one section of the entire BCRA of 2002 – all other prior decisions regarding campaign finance laws is still in place.  The assumption that everyone is making is that the First Amendment applies ONLY to individuals.  Read it again – “Congress shall make no law…abridging the freedom of speech…”  Where exactly does it state that this applies only to individuals?  The affirmative decision cites several cases where corporate speech has been protected – and – in all of the opinions of those cases – it was only suggested that such speech be carefully monitored – but at no time did it ever say it should be banned or abridged.  The BCRA of 2002 did just that – it banned free speech.

As one reader pointed out – what Edwards and Conyers introduced is an Amendment – not a call for a complete repeal of the First Amendment – here is the wording of the introduced Amendment:

‘‘SECTION 1. The sovereign right of the people to govern being essential to a free democracy, Congress and the States may regulate the expenditure of funds for political speech by any corporation, limited liability company, or other corporate entity.


‘‘SECTION 2. Nothing contained in this Article shall be construed to abridge the freedom of the press.’’

Here are the VERY clear dangers of this Amendment:

1. It does indeed repeal the First Amendment except for the freedom of the press by omission of the remaining First Amendment language.  It will be argued as such if this amendment ever gets ratified by the states. If you have ever read previous arguments and decisions coming out of the SCOTUS regarding challenges to any of the amendments – you know what I’m talking about. Omissions are just as important in law interpretation as are submissions.

2. Section 1 allows congress to pick and choose which corporations they want to ban from political speech.  The use of “may” is exclusive.  For this to be all inclusive of all corporations, LLCs or other corporate entities it NEEDS to say “shall.”

3. This Amendment will be struck down as well because SCOTUS just said Congress cannot pass such a law in the Citizen’s United decision.

4. The Main Stream Media is corporate owned today.  At the time the First Amendment was written – it was unheard of or unthinkable that the “press” would become corporate entities.  SCOTUS already protected Corporate speech.  By specifically stating the corporate owned press is excluded from this amendment – it gives the corporate owned press the ability to become the conduit for those who Congress decides to exclude using section 1.  The point I make here is for you liberals and progressives who aren’t thinking this through is this…  I know how much you hate Fox.  Here is the scenario – Citizen’s United produces a movie called “Obama” this time and gets banned again because of section 1.  Now – because of section 2 – Fox news can air the Obama movie because they believe it is newsworthy and worth reporting.  They can hide behind freedom of the press.  Conversely, MoveOn.org creates a flyer critical of the next GOP candidate.  They can’t publish it and distribute it before the election because of section 1.  Well, the New York Times decides it is newsworthy and publishes it as an editorial piece.  They too are protected because Section 2 excludes them and allows the publication to be protected under the freedom of the press clause.
