Speak Ye Not — Unless ye AGREE with me… These are not the bullets you are looking for

A point of much contention and discussion these days is the topic of gay marriage.  The support of gay marriage could be readily seen just by a glace at Facebook last week, when a good portion of people changed their profile pictures to the red equal symbol.  I personally am all in favor of gay marriage rights.  I don’t give a damn who anyone marries.  I think that the government has no place in saying who should love who, who should be allowed to marry who and any attempt to do so is thwarting someone’s rights.  Do I believe gay people should have the same rights, absolutely.

ImageThat being said. I think there should be just as much consideration given to someone who believes that marriage is between a man and a woman. They have just as much right to believe this as a gay couple has to their beliefs.  Now there has been so much discussion about Dr. Ben Carson and his comments about gay marriage.  I think that every person is entitled to believe what they want, Dr. Carson is no exception.  Yet the liberal media is slamming Dr. Carson for believing that marriage should be between a man and a woman.  He has been attacked by the media for speaking his thoughts on the matter.  Don’t have to agree with him-but he should be allowed to speak what he thinks.  The liberals are after him hard for what he said:

“They need to shut me up, they need to get rid of me, they can’t find anything else to delegitimize me, so they take my words, misinterpret them and try to make it seem that I’m a bigot,” he said.”

Also in recent news, an article from the Huffington Post, Conservative Texas Governor Rick Perry most aptly put this:

“This is a very unsettling time in our nation’s history,” Perry said, according to the Associated Press. “These are the days when a person is vilified when they state that they believe fundamentally that marriage is between one man and one woman.”

Perry spoke just hours after the Supreme Court heard arguments on Proposition 8, California’s gay marriage ban. On Wednesday, the justices will consider a case challenging the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Perry went on to suggest that the decision by LGBT rights advocates to fight for equal treatment was proof that they were themselves intolerant.

“The underlying problem is that there is this very vocal, very litigious minority of Americans willing to legally attack anybody who dares utter a phrase or even a name that they don’t agree with,” he said. “In a twisting of logic, they insist on silencing the religious in the cause of tolerance. Now I ask you, where is the tolerance in that?”

There is none Rick.  Sad to say.

Sad but true… this is the case in many cases these days.  Whether it be the hot topic of gay marriage, taxes or the 2nd amendment right to bear arms.
These and more are just a few examples of some of the things in daily headlines that go unnoticed or disregarded.
Disarming American citizens is top priority among liberals and the president’s agenda.  Yet… they continue to stockpile hollow point bullets.  It’s okay for the government to have guns and to stockpile arms, but not the law abiding citizens of the United States.  This does not make any sense, in particular because our 2nd Amendment were written specifically to protect citizens from our own government should it ever become tyrannical.
What do you think about this:
Now think of all the ruling by executive fiat that our president has been doing as of late.  Make no mistake about it, he will usurp every ounce of control that the other branches of government let him use.  They were put there for checks and balances and there is NOT ENOUGH checking going on at this time.  When there are checks–it’s just that wacky right wing group being racist says his back pocket media, whom he had over for tea and lunch.  Kobe beef, mind you with organic greens tended by the First Lady’s gardeners herself.  Live as I say, not as I do… We must tighten our belts—ahem, your belts that is.
However that being said… 79% is a nice number:

U.N. and the local fluff-holding hands…. and the brain?

This headline was enough to make me sick:

U.N. passes sweeping international arms regulation viewed by some as Second Amendment override

Now given the fact the it would need to be ratified, and that would require a 2/3 majority of the Senate, who is in the Senate seat for your State needs to hear your voice.  If this doesn’t come up for ratification before the 2014 election, then the election will be exceedingly important.  Looking at history, voting history and their donors.  Speaking out as constituents will be excruciatingly important.  Now is not the time to be low information voters or one of the people who says, it doesn’t matter what I think.  Complacency… is not a luxury we can afford anymore.

Speaking of local fluff, not that any of this will matter much, it’s really just costing city planning commission time, beefing up lawyer fees and giving publicity to the VFA member here in town.  Whose argument is really quite a joke.  If he did not want to live in an area that gun ownership was prevalent I can think of a few places for him to relocate LOL, CT, CA, NY to name a few.  Head on over buddy, we’ll throw a party and I am sure you will be welcomed with open arms.  (pun intended) haaaaaaaa.  The VFA member roster in Alaska is all of four members, so 4 members (statewide) is holding up a gun range construction permit.  There are only 2 members in Juneau of VFA.  Go on with your bad selves now… scurry on, peace be with you brother.

A measure that will be under heavy fire is the latest ploy by Democrats to mandate liability insurance by all gun owners.  Come on now.  At some point there will be a tipping point for Americans, the people that go about their daily lives, work hard, own a gun or 5, who are law abiding citizens who get tired of being treated like criminals for no damn good reason.

Image

Now I can see the reactionary gun control legislation in CT, although that is NOT the answer–clearly.

Image

I so had to fix that meme, the one that was passed around was spelled wrong.

I am all for finding ways to be safer, but this attacking the American citizens who are NOT breaking any laws, who have no record, who are not a threat EXCEPT to a tyrannical government or an attacking criminal–very little difference in the two.

Oh, no tyrannical government you don’t say?  What about this?  Seriously?  There is obviously a show that the government is on a gun grab or planning on handling civil unrest.
You don’t need that much shit for training—you do not need hollow points to train—I call bullshit.  Write your Senator AND your House Representatives.  They need to hear what you think about these topics.  Now is not the time to sit idly by and think others will do it for you, or your voice doesn’t matter.

Speaking of thinking… Obama wants to spend 100M to map the brain this next year.  I seriously do have some questions about this though.  Is it for the purpose of medical treatment?  But seriously, can we afford, as a country, to spend this kind of money—any more than we can afford to send billions or millions of dollars to foreign countries when our very own country is in such bad shape?  Let China send them the money directly I say.  Enough already.   Map the brain when we have had a chance to gather our (our politicians) senses, our currency is not on the brink of being de-valued as the world reserve currency.

Until next time…

White Men What????????? Bracelets and Babies… Oh my!

I was so disgusted when I saw this headline…. literally it made me sick.

Think about it.  If it was this:

Black people celebrate Heat loss in exceedingly Black fashion

or

Hispanic people celebrate Heat loss in exceedingly Hispanic fashion

or

Asian people celebrate Heat loss in exceedingly Asian fashion

or

Native people celebrate Heat loss in exceedingly Native fashion

There would be race riots in the street, there would be demands for someone’s jobs, there would be violence and you can BE SURE that someoneeeeee would be attending a diversity class somewhere down the line because of the HATRED that was apparently still going on in the world.  GOOD GRIEF….. this shit don’t end.

I can’t believe that this is even condoned this day and age.  It’s just become acceptable for hate speech to white people.  I mean that’s the message that is constantly being sent out there these days.  I am really sick and tired of it.

White people who volunteer for Vista are supposed to now wear bracelets to remind themselves of their “white privelege”????? How sick is this?  Come on now… This is coming from a woman who is a as society would like to label me “minority woman.”  I am so sick and tired of the bigotry both ways that is being fueled by the main stream media and the Democrat party and liberals in general.  Don’t get me wrong.  I see plenty of racism on either side.  But I don’t ever see people losing their minds when it comes to racism towards towards white people, thats just okay.  The evil white people.  Make fun of them, make racist jokes abou them, slander them, make white people comments, talk about them in a negative fashion.  Get everyone to make them look at them in a bad light.  See, that reminds an awful lot of of when racism towards Jews was just okay.poster24I don’t tolerate racism on any level.  Black towards White, White towards Black, Native to White, White to Native, etc. the list goes on.  NONE of it is acceptable.  I get as equally disgusted at any person who dislikes Obama simply for his race alone.  I dislike him because I hate what he is doing to this country, not for the color of his skin.  I would have disliked him if he was green, white, tan, or mauve and did the same damn thing.

In the news this week also, equally disgusting—the vacation plans of the White House.  Apparently the First Girls are skiing. Biden plans on going golfing (again).  This makes for several trips this year for both the Presidential family and the Vice President.  In light of the burgeoning debt, sequester and North Korea threatening war, oh lets just go play a round of golf, send the girls off skiing and plan a yoga party on the White House lawn for Easter, to show everyone how healthy we are for Easter.  At whose expense??? OH yes… the taxpayer…

Speaking of taxpayer money.  I guess it’s the week to disgust me, which is most weeks lately when I read the news.  I was watching this video in horror.  Makes you wonder how many babies are killed, after they have taken their first breath?  Give the fact that Planned Parenthood states they consider life having started after a child has taken their first breath, it surely makes you wonder… She doesn’t know——-come on.  For the millions of dollars of tax payer money, I want to know. 

Until next time…

IRS and Fat Camps

So I am wondering a few things.  Will the IRS now be the collector of proof of Indian Blood. So I will have to show to the IRS my CIB (Certificate of Indian Blood) as well as those for my children.  Are they going to cross check the BIA rolls?  I wonder how many are trying to falsely get their CIB now?  Will I have to every year prove I am a native with every tax return or will once be enough?

Have you ever seen a BIA CIB?  I sure as S%^# hope that they are cross checking with the BIA and tribes to verify enrollment.  Will there be a sudden surge of Indian identity theft or outright falsification by thugs trying to avoid the “tax”?  I wonder if there will be a sudden surge in folks claiming that they are Amish?

I wonder what Elizabeth Warren will do?  Will her cookbook suffice as evidence enough?

Image

Gee, I wonder what other proof they will require from us?

It is my understanding, I could be wrong… that the US Preventative Task Force will determine what is covered care for preventative services under the new health care plan.

The U.S. Preventative Task Force updated their website in June to show:

Release Date: June 2012

  • The USPSTF recommends screening all adults for obesity. Clinicians should offer or refer patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or higher to intensive, multicomponent behavioral interventions.
    Grade: B Recommendation.

Furthermore their fact sheet goes on to say:

“Obesity is a very serious health problem in the United States, and in the past 30 years, obesity rates have dramatically increased,” said Task Force member David Grossman, M.D., M.P.H. “The good news is that even modest weight loss can reduce health risks for people who are obese. And, there is strong scientific evidence that shows that intensive programs with 12 to 26 sessions in the first year can help people manage their weight.”

So will this be the start of fat camps?  What if you don’t listen to the recommendation?  Who will run these fat camps?  They will be covered by preventative care, is this a one time deal?  What if you gain the weight back?  What if you don’t lose weight?  Will there be any penalties or consequences (aside from the obvious health associated risks)?

Image

Will individuals with PCOS and thyroid conditions be exempt from the fat camps?  Oh I just imagine the flow charts to manage our care will be endless!

Until Next Time!

SCOTUS Decision, War on Women and Indian Healthcare?

I haven’t written in a while, mostly I think because I have been disenchanted and just reading the news instead of writing about it.

I read some interesting things today.  One of the most interesting things I read came from a blog from fellow Alaskans.

“Today’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act means that critical new benefits for women remain intact.”

The writer lauds this:

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Northwest released a statement this morning stating that under today’s ruling, millions of women will have access to birth control without a co-pay starting in 2012—protecting their health, making their reproductive choice more affordable, and reducing infant mortality rates if and when they do decide to have children.

What I don’t get, is how this reduces infant mortality rates?  If anything to me this sends the message that it’s okay to go out and get jiggy with it.  That it is the right of everyone, including young teens to go have sex, and it’s their RIGHT to have contraception provided to them by the tax payers.  It doesn’t say anything to me about personal responsibility, like “Hmmm I can’t afford condoms, and if I got pregnant now I wouldn’t be able to afford the baby either.  I guess I better not fool around.”  But let’s get back to infant mortality rates…

I guess it all depends on who you consider an infant. You see, at Planned Parenthood they don’t consider an unborn child an infant who could be considered in their mortality rates, because it hasn’t taken it’s first breath yet.  So the babies that are slaughtered in their clinics under the term “abortion” can’t be counted in the mortality rates, now could they?

Most medical authorities, including Planned Parenthood, agree that it becomes a baby after birth when it takes its first breath.

Guess a beating heart doesn’t count?  I saw this on Facebook and totally agreed with it.  What do you think?

Image

Yet others have blogged about, and I agree with them, then why on earth could a person who murders a pregnant woman be charged with double homicide?  I guess it just depends on who decides when life starts?

Speaking of who decides things.  I was doing some reading on the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force.  Which will determine preventative care under Obamacare.  Now lets just see how this fares in regards to women…

Summary of Recommendations

Screening Men
Screening Women at Increased Risk
Screening Young Men and All Women Not at Increased Risk

Now… did you notice that they only recommend screening WOMEN 45 and older IF they are at increased risk?  But they recommend screening MEN age 35 and older.  YET… the CDC itself states:

Heart disease and stroke are among the most widespread and costly health problems facing our nation today, even though they are also among the most preventable. Heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death for both women and men.

And I did a bit more research on this matter.  I found this little bit of info:

MYTH #3: Only older women have heart disease.

TRUTH: Heart disease threatens all women, even those as young as 30 and 40.For example, the rate of sudden cardiac death of women in their 30s and 40s is increasing much faster than in men their same age—rising 21 percent in the 1990s.[2]

So where is the outrage on the war against women?  *crickets*

The U.S. Preventative Task Force also does not recommend teaching women to do a monthly self breast exam anymore.  Yet breastcancer.org has this to say:

“New guidelines recommending that women not perform breast self-examinations (BSEs) could seriously endanger women’s health and lead to later detection of cancers in some women,” says Marisa Weiss, M.D., president and founder of Breastcancer.org and a leading breast cancer oncologist. “These guidelines do not reflect a new point of view, but they are still very bad advice.”

So if you want to consider the SCOTUS decision a win… a victory if you will, for women.  I think you are misguided.  If you want to consider it a win for the American people I think you are also wrong.  Our debt cannot bear the burden of such a program first of all.  Secondly, the system will become overwhelmed with people seeking their FREE care for things that they might not have gone to the doctor for.  When it becomes “FREE” clinics will be full of people seeking care for every little ache and pain, clinics will be overwhelmed triaging real medical necessity and the “cough cough” ill.  The providers will become jaded, begin to treat every patient as a “cough cough” patient and before you know it your FREE healthcare really sucks.

Just have a go at Indian Health Services if you don’t believe me.  Just say you are from Elizabeth Warren’s tribe, worked for her, should work for you right?  No need to show ID or proof here, right?  So, if you could get into IHS care, you might find that it’s not all that it’s what it’s cracked up to be, this free healthcare, and a lot of real illness get overlooked or missed, a lot of “cough cough” illnesses see to destroying providers ability to give two *coughs* and some people even end up dead.  But no ones complaining about that now are they, because it’s all free right?  Oh wait, complaints might be made but they fall on deaf ears.  Besides, there is not a big enough constituency of these IHS recipients to make a difference in the polls anyhow.  I guess when it is the general populace the constituent pool would be bigger, but we aren’t looking at that now are we??

Abandoning Cain? HECK NO! I’d rather keep the Able!

I have watched, somewhat intermittently, the media frenzy over the sexual harassment allegations and GOP nomination hopeful, Herman Cain. I listened to Rush for a bit, who actually came to Cain’s defense, which was interesting because a few weeks prior it didn’t sound like Rush was pro-Cain. But I am sure he can’t stand the media slashing of him either. I don’t think anyone can stand it. I am even disgusted with people I ordinarily really respect, such as Jonah Goldberg a writer at NRO for writing this article: The Coming Cain Mutiny. He is dismissing Cain, already. He has basically acknowledged that the MSM has won and this character assassination has done its job effectively and there is no way that Cain can overcome this. Really Jonah? I also read Costa’s article. He is also giving up hope on Cain. I personally like the statement from the Cain campaign: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/282520/team-cain-stresses-allreds-celebrity-lawyer-reputation-bialeks-financial-difficulties- I have to give big Kudos to Katrina Trinko for her article, which doesn’t disparage Cain or start pounding nails in the campaign coffin. Great job!!!

This just came out a few minutes ago in the Chicago Sun Times. Apparently the latest accuser was at a Tea Party function where Herman Cain was speaking and actually hugged him and spoke to him. Now, if I were sexually harassed by someone, would I HUG him? I think NOT. Would you go hug your sexual harasser? Would you??? Really????? This just gives more credibility to Herman Cain and adds to the already lacking credibility of Gloria Allred and her client.

Given the fact that the attorney for the latest woman is Gloria Allred (vomit silently and resumes writing) I don’t lend much credence to the allegations. I think that if the GOP Presidential hopefuls were smart, they’d all stick together on this one, say-“Enough is enough, this is just the MSM having a field day with little much of nothing trying to discredit something that can defeat Obama.” It could have been any one of them. Romney, Good Ole Newt, Perry or Bachman herself. But they chose Cain because he was ahead in the polls. It’s the let’s just take him out at the knee and run when the zombies are coming trick, if you are a Walking Dead fan. But there is no doubt, we need a weakened GOP for Obama to be reelected right? Who wants to give them what they want?? NOT ME. Right now the GOP is in the “It’s all about me,” stage and who wants to be nominated. I know who I want to be nominated.

Now I understand that each one of them is trying to win the nomination. But there is a bigger picture here at stake. The numbers haven’t been lying. Cain has been ahead in most every poll. Why do you think they felt the need to fabricate something and run with it? 90+ stories Politico, with no sources? No, I don’t think so. Run something so wild and crazy and wait for some woman of ill repute to want her five minutes of fame. Don’t you think that is possible? What do you think of Gloria Allred and her credibility and ethics? Cain’s campaign is right, who is paying Gloria Allred’s fee?

Back to the bigger picture. This does not diminish my support for Cain. In fact, it simply reinforces it. I am tired of the MSM character assassinations. I refuse to let them influence my choice. Now if there were irrefutable evidence, a video of Cain being a sexual harassing pig, well that might change my mind. But we have had pigs run this country before, just think about the cigar smoking Bill. Why is it that Hilary is still standing tall? They didn’t assassinate her character, “HOW could you still be with that man after what he did, and all the LIES?” Oh wait, she is a Liberal. Never mind. Herman Cain is more than able, more down to earth and personable than the rest of the shady typical politicians. Just the kind of change this country needs to get back on its feet. The kind of leader people can believe in to do the work we really need to do, and boy do we need to work.

Mr. Cain has the kind of UMPF needed for the country right now. I don’t see that in any of the other candidates. I see in Mr. Cain the kind of belief in American exceptionalism, heck he has made that exceptionalism work in the companies he has led! He KNOWS what that means. I love that he supports Israel. I love his down to earth manner and his numbers driven sensibility. He is the kind of person I can and will vote for in the next election. He is a doer and he is a capable man who deserves more credit than some weak minded belief in the main stream media’s current vomitus, to protect the current regime and liberal agenda.

Hostile… A New Perspective.

I read this on Facebook today.  It really sparked in my mind this post and I just had to share it.

A 2nd civil war will errupt in America. Americans are very, very tough people. They didn’t beat the British, French and very hostile Indians not to mention the Mexicans, only to have a Rothschild sponsed war against themselves. Yes, push these people too far and you will see the real Americans come out! Only this time the Northerners and the Southerners will be fighting side by side.–Debra J Frank

I agree that Americans are tougher than they think we are. Me being an Indian (Alaskan Native and Caucasian to be exact), I kind of have to wonder about the very hostile part. It seems to me, that they were fighting for the rights that we (we as in Americans in general, the ones who care about freedoms), in current times are fighting for…
I guess the idea that they were very hostile, only gives light to how one might feel when their way of life is being *fundamentally changed* for them… I imagine that instead of viewing the Indians as very hostile, Debra might have a better understanding. Just as people are pissed about illegal immigrants flooding our borders, imagine how a Native American might have felt…

I think many will fight side by side for freedom. I am not saying what I am saying to be divisive. I am saying that it will be important to be very mindful to not allow the differences between us make us enemies fighting the same battle. Why do you think they play the race card so often? A divided people will not win.

The good news is I have FAITH that the people of America will win.

It will be hard.  I am reminded of the saying that “Nothing good comes easy.”  This will be hard.  Just as many things in life are not easy, but we know the reward for our hard work is worth it.  It may be hard to pull up the sleeves, to stand for your convictions in the face of someone saying that you are racist for not agreeing with politics of the current regime.  It will be hard to decide who is truly the enemy among us.  There is not differentiation of skin color.  There is no line of longitude or state line that divides us.  There is nothing except truly getting to the heart of someone and seeing what do they believe?

What are the common threads that are important? You know we all won’t agree on everything. What though, are we willing to unite on?

I urge you all to put aside the differences that can divide us.  To put forth the things that unite us.  To hold them high and stand in the face of difficulty.  Stand shoulder to shoulder with someone you might not have expected to in the past.

Stand with your fellow Americans in Arizona, Texas and California that want better border control.  How audacious of the Mexican government and Obama to be snubbed by Arizona’s law!  This fundamental change of ignoring laws, ignoring the needs of Americans and condemning anyone who upholds America, American Values and wants to preserve the nation and get back the American Exceptionalism.

I have compassion for the people of Mexico.  I am sure that I’d rather be here than there too.  BUT, do it the right way.  Go about it the right way.  Enter legally.  Become a citizen.  Speak our language.  If I had a say in it, you are NOT eligible for social security, government benefits until you have been here a specified period of time AND paid into taxes just like the rest of us.

The liberals/leftists/progressives might scream “Oh that’s not right, they will only make minimum wage!”  What about the American mother, with 2 kids?  She makes minimum wage…  I am sick and tired of this country’s “give me” mentality and lack of respect for our own people.  People used to make do.  They used to understand that it was through HARD work, determination and perseverance that the good things in life came to you.  Not via a government check because we all deserve it!

I went to a meeting the other day.  They were talking about the Medicaid and people being uninsured and woe about all the hoops that someone has to go through.  I felt like standing up and screaming “HOW many of you voted for Obama?  HOW MANY of you voted for Obamacare??? Don’t you realize navigating MEDICAID will seem like child’s play once his PLAN reigns supreme????”

I am all about compassion but you have to be healthy to be able to give.  You have to be strong in order to help.  Obama and his ilk are trying to destroy our strength and health as American people.  The fundamental change is at the door and people are seeing, “Hey, this is what he meant… ummmm wait a second.”  Suddenly people like Rush and Glenn are making more sense.

Stand united on the things that matter or we are doomed.

What do you think?

Until Next Time
