A Few More Points of the Healthcare Bill to Ponder

This was sent to me via email. It is just amazing what these elitists will putinto a bill and what they want to do to our health care system.

Once again, call your Senators and Congressmen and tell them Health Care Reform is very important to you, however, you would like to be able to get healthcare when the system is reformed. 202-224-3121.

Kill the Enemy or Bring Our Troops Home

This administration has had recommendations from the General in charge of Afghanistan, for nearly 2 months. This President hand picked this General to take charge of this mission. I thought, no I had hoped, that this President, if he did nothing else, would fight the "war of necessity", called so by himself, and fight it to win. I, personally, cannot understand, having our young men and women fight and die, to install a government that is "Good Enough", in the words of John turncoat Kerry.

It's the VETERAN not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It's the VETERAN not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It's the VETERAN not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It's the VETERAN not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

It's the VETERAN who salutes the Flag,

It's the VETERAN who serves under the Flag,
It's the VETERAN who is buried under the Flag.

Mr President, either define the mission, give the troops on the ground what they need to accomplish that mission and to kill the enemy or bring our troops home. STOP KILLING OUR TROOPS! That is just exactly what this indecisive, incompetent, irresponsible, President is doing by not giving General McChrystal the troops for which he asked. Call the White House today, at 202-456-1111, and tell this jerk to crap or get off the pot. We are tired of our young men and women dying due to his incompetence or lack of political fortitude. CALL TODAY.

Baseball Helmets for Everybody

The more I read stories from every day America, the more I wonder what the heck happened to our personal responsibility. The other day I was riding along listening to the radio and heard, in a short 10 second sound bit, a story about Louisville Slugger being sued. The story caught my ear because I have toured their impressive manufacturing plant in Louisville KY and look forward, someday, to touring their aluminum bat plant in Ontario, CA. All I heard on the radio at that point though, was that the company was being sued in Helena MT. I later looked up the story.

As a very brief summary, the suit alleges that the bat manufacturer knew of the inherent problems with the bat causing the ball to come off the bat too fast. WHAT? Isn't a bat made to hit the ball fast and hard? As I read the story, I just couldn't help but see the grieving family, not know what to do, where to turn, and this ambulance chaser coming along and saying something like, you know, they knew that was bound to happen, you should make them pay. Those evil corporations. They have insurance, that what insurance is for, right? It's Big Bat's fault. Now, I don't know if this is how this suit came about, but I have my feelings about attorney's, for my own reasons, and my mind will likely not be swayed from those feelings.

More to the point though, is this. What's next? Do we sue the Field groomer, for having not groomed the field in such a way to cause a draft to slow the ball, sue the umpire for having not stopped the game for faulty or improper equipment, sue the league for having not required a pitching helmet, sue the ball designer for having designed the ball with the stitching in such a way as to cause serious bodily injury or death. What happens the next time a boxer gets his brains scram?bled by a hard punch? Do we sue the glove manufacturer because he made an 8oz glove available rather than a 12oz glove? Do we sue the winning fighter’s trainer because he taught the guy how to swing with a harder upper?cut than the other fighters? What about the manufacturer of a BBQ grill? Do we sue them because they knew we were going to cook greasy food and cause our arteries to clog? Oh here's one, what if someone buys a cup of coffee, spills it on themselves and then sues because the coffee was hot? Oh wait, that already happened, but you get the point.

To what have we stooped as a nation when we will sue, and allow suit of, a manufaturer of a product that performs as designed, but causes a freak and unintended accident.

This story is truly tragic. I personally can't imagine losing a child. I've don't have any children and some tell me that skews my thought process in these cases. I'm here to tell you that that just isn't true. I care not to elaborate, but suffice to say, loss is something to which I can relate. C’mon people, this has to stop some?where. Grow up, take responsibility for your own actions, and accept the consequences for playing rough or using utinsels that could have unintended consequences.

Republican Party has Identified a Villian for 2010 Elections

Did I hear this correctly? Did I hear the news, or what is called the news, say that the RNC had Identified a "Villain" for the 2010 midterm elections? Nancy Pelosi has been tagged as "you're it" by the Republican National Committee and Michael Steele. Michael, wake up pal, we(America) do not want or need a villain, we want and need a hero, someone to look up to not to villainize. We have plenty of villains in D.C., just pick one of any 536 plus all the aids and staff. There is no shortage of people to attack, let's pick someone, just one, on which we can build America and stop trying to destroy people. They are doing a good enough job of destruction themselves... Aren't they?

Okay, look, I guess I am going to get myself in trouble here but Michael Steele is an idiot. I would guess that the only reason Michael Steele was picked or "chosen" to head the RNC was so that the Republican Party cool aid drinkers could say that they aren't racists. They can say look, we're not racists, we have a black man leading our party too.

Michael Steele was one of the few black men who was a registered Republican so he can be called a conservative yet liberal enough for the party to accept. If they really wanted a conservative black person to lead the party, why not go after Charles Payne from Fox news or Condolezza Rice?

Why? Because they are too conservative, that isn't what the party wants. The party wants to move left with the perception of conservatism. You see, they believe if they call themselves conservatives, and attach that to the Republican party, with a black man at the helm, all the cool aid drinkers will follow.

Guess what RNC, it ain't gonna happen. Not this time. We will not be made to believe that liberal lite is better than liberal. If we continue to pick between the lesser of two evils, evil still wins. Not this time. Michael Steele needs to resign and we need to, if we want to save the Republican Party, put a true conservative in charge. Black, red, white, yellow, or purple, I don't care, just a true conservative. That is if the party is to be saved.

Personally, I couldn't care less, I am not registered as a Republican so you all do what you want, and I'll do the same. Just please stop calling yourselves conservatives and associating that with Republicans. Most of us "Conservatives" left the "Republicans" long ago.

Limbaugh "Rammed" out of Consortium

After a group of investors came to Rush Limbaugh and asked him to participate on the purchase of the loss besieged, St. Louis Rams, football franchise, the same group asked him to resign from the consortium and when he refused, he was fired. Amid a firestorm of hate filled, racist accusations of racism, the consortium folded like a cheap card table and demanded Rush step back and step down form the group.

Let us not forget that the consortium was forewarned of the attacks that were to follow and their response was that they were ready for the criticism. Let us not forget that they came to Rush, not the other way around. And, let us not forget that all of the accusations of racism were false and inflammatory, produced mostly by racists, themselves. The only remark that could be produced by the race baitors was that Donovan McNabb was only a great quarterback because the press wanted a black man to succeed. Kind of like our President...but I digress. The fact of the matter is, that I had said the same thing only a few weeks before Limbaugh verbalized the same thought, on national television. Really, about that, I see nothing racist. Inflamatory? Controversial? Maybe. Definately not racist.

I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh, mostly because I haven't found him on XM yet, but I like the guy. I think he says what he means, and believes everything he says. I know that he is a great football fan, and fan of the amazing athletes that make the game great. I am also not a Rams fan. So I really have no dog in this fight except to say that I am tired of the politically charged, race baiting, comments from the left.

My gripe here, is not really that they forced Rush out, but that if the tables were turned and Jackson or Sharpton were to join a group ti purchase the same franchise, that they would be ushered in like a prom queen or like the first, incompetent, black, American President. Not to mention, if there were any descent, from anyone, in or out of the NFL arena, those dissenters would be the racists, not Sharpton or Jackson. These two, so called reverends, have done more to divide America and made more racist remarks than David Duke, but then again, they're black, they can't be racists. Right?

"O" on Another Campaign Tour and Vote Purchasing Extravaganza

Today, "O" is going to visit the hurricane ravaged New Orleans then it is off to a DNC fund raiser in San Francisco, CA. This is 4 years, and a full administration, after the original hurricane Katrina devastated the flood stricken area. I suppose it isn't a bad idea for "O" top visit the area, make sure repairs and reconstruction are going as planned, but why only after 4 years, 9 months into his presidential rein, and never during his time as a caring, powerful Senator or Acorn attorney or even community organizer. Makes you say hmmm, doesn't it?

Oh and then it is off to San Francisco, CA to a DNC fundraiser, on your taxpayer dime. While folks in this country are hungry, homeless, jobless and mad as hell about this out of control government forcing health care reform, auto, bank, and financial institution bailouts,and a non-stimulating stimulus package down our collective throats, this administration is still campaign mode. Wait there's more, we have soldiers in Afghanistan dying because this indecisive, imbecilic, boob running off to the SFO Bay area to do some more campaigning for future elections, both his and his congressional cronies.

As if that isn't enough, now "O" is pushing for a 13 billion dollar infusion to Social Security for payments to recipients of the entitlement slavery inducing, monthly payment, to make up for them not receiving a cost of living increase for the year. What the hell is that? Of course there is no cost of living increase, their cost of living has gone down. Inflation, which is what the cost of living increase is based upon, is negative. Why the hell would you get a cost of living increase when your cost of living has decreased? I submit, to purchase your vote. This way, "O" can say, well, you didn't have a raise coming but we helped you, we cared enough to recognize your hardships to give you a second $250.00 payment in the second half of my administration. We done that to help. We done that to show our concern.I say, my a%# you did. You did that to purchase, to have something to hold over their heads for their next vote in 2010 so that you can try to keep your majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives.

Please call your Reps and Senators. Please tell them not to pass another money infusion of any kind to anyone or any special interest group. This government is all about buying votes and or paying for votes already delivered. Let your reps know that a vote for another 13 billion dollars to seniors will be another nail in their political coffins. Let them know that if your mother, dad, grandparents or whomever needs another $250.00 to make it through the year that you will be the one to give it to them, just like God, and our founders wanted. WAKE UP, STAND UP, RISE UP, AND SPEAK UP AMERICA. NOW IS THE TIME TO BE SEEN AND HEARD.

Barstool Economics

I am quite sure that most of you all have seen this but I just feel that, especially right now, it is very appropriate and worth re-posting here for some that may not have seen it and may not understand how our unfair, "progressive" tax system penalizes your for doing well. It is called "Barstool Economics" and goes like this...

Barstool Economics

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that's what they decided to do. The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.
"Since you are all such good customers", he said, "I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20". Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his "fair share?"
They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.
"I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, "but he got $10!"
"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got ten times more than I!"
"That's true!!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!"
"Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. "We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!"
The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

Origins unknown.

When will someone in D.C. Get Some Guts

You know, I ride along here, in our truck, while listening to what is misnamed as news and wonder why no-one will stand up and speak out. I mean, money is nice, power can cause great drunkenness, having your name on buildings, streets, colleges, parks, bridges, airports, etc., all that, I'm sure, can be very mesmerizing, but isn't your integrity, your honor, your country and countrymen worth something? Personally, I think it is worth more than all the other, of course I've had none of the other so I can't say one way or another, but I know what I think.

I am just wondering when someone in D.C. will grow a pair, get some guts and stand up on national television, every time they get the opportunity and tell the folks across America how unconstitutional this health care bill, among other things,really is. (I know I just ended a sentence in a preposition, and to my mother, I apologize, sometimes it seems a must, but I digress...). Back to the point here, Who is the federal government, who works for us, the citizens of the United States of America, to tell us that they are mandating health insurance for all? And who the hell do they think they are to tell us we won't be forced to give up the insurance we have? They work for us and they need to know that. I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but maybe one, just one, derelict in Washington will stumble upon this and realize that they are selling their souls for 1 quick drink. Hell, I'd bet that WE THE PEOPLE would buy you drinks for the rest of your life if you'd just grow a pair.

By the way, I think Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins are the worst representatives in the Senate. These two are the most liberal of the republican party and should not be financed by any conservative or any RNC funds for their re-election bids. I obviously have no say in what the RNC does with their money, since I don't give to parties, but rather to individual candidates, but these to are the reason for that particular choice in my life.

Someone please wake up. Use all the money you have stolen, over time and during your rein as Senator or House Rep, buy a bunch of radio, television and newspaper space and billboard space and tell the folks in America how you have awakened and that the crap Congress is doing is totally unconstitutional and even treasonous to the United States of America. My guess is that it will come back to you 10 fold and you will definitely be a better person, if not a more monetarily wealthy person for your truthfulness. Oh it will probably cost you a lot of clout in congress, maybe even your seat, but you will have "WE THE PEOPLE" behind you. Don't believe me? Look at Joe Wilson. Of course Joe got in trouble for what he done and appears to have his tail between his legs in retreat now. STAND UP!!

In closing, we hope that you can find it in your budget to help with a small purchase or a donation in support of our mission.

Beware of Dinner With Obama...A Parable

While having some minor work done on the truck this morning, I met a fellow patriot at the shop in which we were. Lynn, a manager for a local delivery company, showed a grand Love of Country, and true concern for the direction this administration has taken this Country. Lynn signed our truck, pics to be posted at the 912 Truck blog site when our computer is returned to operating condition and I can return this one to it's rightful owner. I appreciate the use but this thing is a true "piece". Anyway, Lynn was kind enough to forward a story to me and I thought I'd post it here. It follows...

Dinner with Obama, a Parable ......
Once upon a time, I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with the President.
I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for computers and portable electronics.

There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration,
but I paid it no mind.

I live in a free country. There's nothing
that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws.
My wealth was earned honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff,
and joined the President in a yellow dining room.
We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen.
The Great Seal was embossed on the China. Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out,
plucked a dinner roll off my plate, and began nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen.

"Sorry about that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry."

"I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes across from me,
I felt immediately guilty and petty. It was just a dinner roll.
"Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass.
Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed the wine in a single gulp.

"And his brother Eric is very thirsty." said the President I didn't say anything.
The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I will play along.

I don't want to seem unkind.

My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite.

"Eric's children are also quite hungry."

With a lurch, I crashed to the floor.

My chair had been pulled out from under me. I stood, brushing myself off angrily,
and watched as it was carried from the room.

"And their grandmother can't stand for long."

I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool.
Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game.
I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken.
I turned back to t he President.

Their grandfather doesn't like the cold."

I wanted to shout- that was my coat!
But again, I looked at the placid smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport.

I spread my hands helplessly and chuckled.
Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone.
I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side table.
I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts emptied,
my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had been thrown out of our home.

Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in.
The President hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this,
but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face him.

"Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions.
They haven't planned for retirement, and they need a house.. T
hey recently defaulted on a sub-prime mortgage.
I told them they could have your home. They need it more than you do."

My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt on the floor.

The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak and drank his wine..
"By the way," He added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing your factories.
I'm firing you as head of your business. I'll be operating the firm now for the benefit of all mankind.
There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to you for jobs groveling like beggars."

I looked up.
The President dropped his spoon into the empty dish which had been his Creme Brulee.
He drained the last drops of his wine.
As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair.

He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if were a ledge and I were a man hanging over an abyss.
I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived.

The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle. Why was I punished?
How had I allowed it to be taken?
What game had I just played ... and lost?

What had I done wrong?

As if answering the unspoken thought,

the President suddenly cocked his head, locked his empty eyes to mine,

and bared a million beautiful white teeth, chuckling wryly as he folded his hands.

"You are a total idiot," he said. "You should have stopped me at the dinner roll..."

Makes you wonder what kind of dinner was served to the Auto Companies, the Insurance Companies, the Drug Companies, the Banks, the Financial Institutions, etc., etc., and who, on the staff may be hungry this time. I also, wonder in a suspicious kind of way, who really got the beer, served at the "beer summit", a few months ago. There are an awful lot of "thirsty, homeless, drunks in D.C.. I mean...I'm just sayin'.
