This disconnection between the rulers and the ruled is getting scary

Watch this INSANE video clip of California congressman Pete Starke telling us that "Our borders are quite secure, thank you,"

I've seen politicians act the ass on many occasions, but this man's attitude is utterly outrageous. This is arrogance personified!

I couldn't find the embed code, so please go to this link and watch the video.

Watching that made me LIVID with rage.

What American who believes - really believes - that the government should be the servant of the people, would not be enraged at the absolute arrogance exhibited by this congressman? Can everyone not see that he fancies himself the ruler, and we the ruled?


Don't like how the 2A reads? Just lie about what it says then.

Here's the Brady Campaign's spokesman Dennis Henigan misquoting the Second Amendment!


Irrefutable commentary on what America has become

I found this on Neal Boortz's website this morning, and it left me positively livid. When I have some time to "wax eloquent" you can rest assured dear reader that I will send these people a scathing letter denouncing this crap as utterly communist! And yes... I will post it here for your reading pleasure.

Now on to the story:


Wilder Publications has published a book entitled "The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence and The Articles of Confederation." For some reason Wilder Publications saw fit to put a disclaimer in the book .. a disclaimer for our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. Here's the disclaimer:

"This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work."

"This book?" They're talking about our Constitution and Declaration of Independence here. This is Obama's America. Now we're being urged to discuss concepts of sexuality and ethnicity with our children before we allow them to read our Constitution. Wilder Publications doesn't seem to want to discuss the matter with the media. They do have an address though ... and just in case ....

Judge halts Obama's oil-drilling ban

In today's Washington Times:

A federal judge in New Orleans halted President Obama's deepwater drilling moratorium on Tuesday, saying the government never justified the ban and appeared to mislead the public in the wake of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Judge Martin L.C. Feldman issued an injunction, saying that the moratorium will hurt drilling-rig operators and suppliers and that the government has not proved an outright ban is needed, rather than a more limited moratorium.

He also said the Interior Department also misstated the opinion of the experts it consulted. Those experts from the National Academy of Engineering have said they don't support the blanket ban.

"Much to the government's discomfort and this Court's uneasiness, the summary also states that 'the recommendations contained in this report have been peer-reviewed by seven experts identified by the National Academy of Engineering.' As the plaintiffs, and the experts themselves, pointedly observe, this statement was misleading," Judge Feldman said in his 22-page ruling.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the administration will appeal the decision, and said Mr. Obama believes the government must figure out what went wrong with the Deepwater Horizon rig before deepwater drilling goes forward. Still, the ruling is another setback as Mr. Obama seeks to show he's in control of the 2-month-old spill.

Democrats and Republicans from the Gulf states have called on the president to end the blanket moratorium, saying it is hurting the region.

Oil company executives told Congress last week they would have to move their rigs to other countries because they lose up to $1 million a day per idle rig, and said there are opportunities elsewhere.

Un - freaking - believable!

Florida's Senator reports that Obongo has told him that oil skimmers can't be brought to Florida from elsewhere because THEY MIGHT NEED THEM IN THE EVENT OF AN OIL SPILL!

What have we learned in 2,065 years?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Cicero - 55 BC

So, evidently we've learned nothing !

What Americans see as a threat

It's interesting to me what Americans see as a threat - but it's just as interesting to what we DON'T see as a threat.

This Gallup poll recently published in USA Today shows that we're as concerned about excessive debt as we are about terrorism. Good! It's about time folks started waking up a bit. But now look at the percentages for The Size and Power of the Federal Gubmint: 38% of folks say they're not concerned about it. Well who the hell do those folks think is responsible for the dangerous levels of debt!

This degree of economic ignorance among Americans is a major contributing factor to the coming death of the Republic. And that's how the political class likes it!


How to sell toothbrushes

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited.

Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: "I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30," she said
proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."

"Very good," said the teacher.

Little Mary was next:

"I sold magazines," she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events."

"Very good, Mary" said the teacher…

Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn.

The teacher held her breath ...

Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467," he said.

"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"

"Toothbrushes," said Little Johnny.

"Toothbrushes!" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"

"I found the busiest corner in town," said Little Johnny. "I set up a Dip & Chip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample."

They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog shit!"

Then I would say,"It is dog shit. Wanna' buy a toothbrush?"

"I used the governmental approach of giving you something shitty for free, and then making you pay to get the shitty taste out of your mouth."

Have ALL Brits lost their bloody minds?

Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic 'spiritual principles' in order to protect the environment.

In an hour-long speech,the heir to the throne argued that man's destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions - but particularly those of Islam.

He said the current 'division' between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment - which goes against the grain of 'sacred traditions'.

Formerly Great Britain is literally committing suicide before our eyes!


This man's random thoughts have more wisdom than most folk's concentrated intelligence

Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene
By Thomas Sowell

All sorts of "global warming" advocates have all sorts of ideas for cooling the planet. I would be happy if they would just cool the rhetoric.

A newspaper headline said: "U.S. Growing Impatient with Iran." Boy, won't that scare them to death? If they keep going, and make enough nuclear bombs to blast us to smithereens, we will go to the United Nations and get a resolution passed, condemning their actions - or, if the U.N. won't go that far, deploring their lack of cooperation.

Contrary to what has been widely believed, scholars say that Neanderthals had bigger brains than we have. Why did they become extinct, then? Maybe they got too smart for their own good.

When someone in New York City says, "Excuse me, sir," you know that you are really old.

Umpire Jim Joyce, who publicly admitted that his wrong call cost pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game, and Galarraga himself both exhibited grace in the way they reacted to the situation. How long has it been since anyone has done anything that called for the word "grace"?

When you consider what an enormous windfall gain it is to be born in America, it is painful to hear some people complain bitterly that someone else got a bigger windfall than they did.

After North Korea torpedoed a South Korean ship, killing 46 sailors, was there even one-tenth the outrage that is ringing out loudly around the world because of nine deaths that resulted from Israeli commandos intercepting a ship headed for the Gaza strip?

In political rhetoric, "comprehensive immigration reform" means amnesty up front and promises of border control later - promises that have not been kept in the past and are unlikely to be kept in the future. Anyone who is serious, as distinguished from political, knows that you have to control your own borders before you can have an immigration policy that means anything in practice.

Even though some people say we are living in a "knowledge economy," we are living in a political atmosphere in which ignorance has more power than ever. Washington politicians who have never run any business are telling all kinds of businesses - from automobile companies and banks to hospitals and insurance companies - how they have to run their businesses. This is the golden age of ignorance in power.

Electrical cords seem to be very sociable. Whenever there are two that are near each other, they almost always seem to get intertwined.

It is one of the signs of our times when people in the media ask how some of our home-grown terrorists could "turn against their own country."

Even experienced politicians would have a hard time coming up with a more grossly misleading phrase than "the Middle East peace process."

We cannot recapture the past, but sometimes it can recapture us - if we are not careful.

Just as the American Left has adopted blacks as mascots, so the international Left has adopted Palestinians as mascots. In both cases, the actual well-being of the mascots is not the point.

Mascots exist to be symbols for others. In all the years when the Arab states controlled the area that Israel took over after the 1967 war, nobody cared what happened to the Palestinians, much less offered them a homeland.

Whether Barack Obama is simply incompetent as president or has some hidden agenda to undermine this country, at home and abroad, he has nearly everything he needs to ruin America, including a fool for a vice president.

We have now reached the truly dangerous point where we cannot even be warned about the lethal, fanatical, and suicidal hatred of our Islamic extremist enemies in our midst, because to do so here would be politically incorrect - and in some European countries, would be a violation of laws against inciting hostility to groups.

Here's a picture that pretty much says it all

They keep watering down our rights!

I can't believe it! I actually agree with Sotomayor!

By JESSE J. HOLLANDThe Associated Press Tuesday, June 1, 2010; 3:54 PM

WASHINGTON -- Want to invoke your right to remain silent? You'll have to speak up.

In a narrowly split decision, the Supreme Court's conservative majority expanded its limits on the famous Miranda rights for criminal suspects on Tuesday - over the dissent of new Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who said the ruling turned Americans' rights of protection from police abuse "upside down."
