Endorsed by Saul?

Why do so many people embrace “The end justifies the means” philosophy in politics and life?  Bending the rules or circumventing a well delineated process, to suit your purpose is an ethical violation; Believing you are right does not give you the excuse to break the law, unless you are certain elected officials & then Machiavelli (or Saul Alinsky) reigns supreme in your philosophy & you use it justify what you do.  Endorsed by Saul… Feel better now?  Still doesn’t make it right nor tolerable.

The Obama administration and the Democratic party have been transparent in their deception, their “great community organizer” is following true to form and I am so pleased to see so many American people angry at their manipulations.  They might have a majority, despite lack of popular majority.  They don’t even have the courtesy to use vaseline with their cornhusker kickbacks.  Smile, “it’s good for you and what you need.”  It is duly noted and people are pissed.

I don’t agree with what is going on in this country, and a LOT of people I talk to don’t either.  Including Idaho… Congratulations Idaho!  I applaud you and any other state that has the balls to stand up to this administration and defend the United States Constitution.

I think Rush or Glenn Beck and any other person who has the means to organize the American people in defending the constitution should do so.

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free you mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
all right, all right
all right, all right, all right
all right, all right, all right

What do you think?

I did not call for…

I called Mark Begich’s office in Juneau this week.  I called to tell the dutiful aide, knowing that Begich would not be available to speak to, that I opposed the proposed healthcare legislation that Obama and the Democratic party were continuing to ram down the throats of the American people.

The dutiful aide asked what I, in particular, I was opposed to.  I asked him if he had a few hours.

I then proceeded to explain how I did not support the healthcare legislation.

The dutiful aide provided me with the standard leftist baloney and I just had to interrupt him.  I stated:

“I did not call to hear the democratic rhetoric, I called to tell you, as a constituent, I oppose the president’s healthcare legislation.”

I have been watching the news, reading articles and working with my children.

We watched Glenn Beck the other night, the topic was education and how the left has infiltrated the educational system and is trying to indoctrinate our children.

I am concerned.  I am very glad that my children do not see the way others in their generation see things.

Education is indeed a privilege and not a right.

My duty, as a parent, is to see that my children are educated.  I pay my local and federal taxes to ensure they are educated, but that’s not where my duty ends.  I am responsible for educating my children and for teaching them to question what they are presented with.  My daughter failed a test on climate change, she is a straight A student.  She doesn’t believe in Good Ole Al’s Global Warming.  Just like I don’t believe in government run healthcare!

I read a Facebook post by someone I know.  Who stated “??? I am native, why here in homer, i can not get free health care?? like nome or anchoarage?”

I wrote back, “Certain communities have health care services for native people. However, health care is never free, someone, somewhere pays the price!”

I have stopped attending the native clinic here.  The reason?  I get what I pay for.  Invest nothing, receive crap. I would only use that as a LAST resort.   Like welfare, which is meant to be used as a last resort.

Where’s my piece of the pie? I hear things like that all the time–it is unfortunately the message that is being thrown out there in overt and unseen ways.  The overall message reeks.  What happened to the world I grew up in?  What happened to strong moral grounds and dedication and hard work?

50 years ago, we earned it… with hard work and perseverance.   We did not get to be the greatest nation without elbow grease!  It wasn’t handed to us because we deserved it!  It was not our birthright!  It was a result of hard work.

We are not guaranteed a college education, healthcare OR happiness.  The pursuit of happiness is guaranteed by the Constitution.  We can work to achieve it.  The belief of so many these days, is that we deserve things to which the left wing wants us to believe, at the expense of the greatness of America.  I’d much rather live in a country where it is POSSIBLE to have good healthcare, to have the chance at making a reasonable living, the chance to live in a country with the freedom of speech, the right to vote and the pursuit of happiness.

I am tired of this world that accepts so freely the disgusting display of immorality, insincerity, unethical behavior and where duty is something that the government dictates, not the morals of society.

The rich don’t make the world evil, the big corporations don’t either.  The message that society has accepted and allowed has promoted the degeneration of our society.  Silence betokens consent.  Why are people not screaming about commercials that depict the prelude to a threesome, aired during prime time as the family watches a television show?  What parent thinks that is acceptable?

Commercials make me sick these days.  With a few exceptions.  The kind of commercials like the ones for values.com commercials are too few and far between.

We are losing our moral rudder.  All in the name of political correctness.  God is forbidden in schools, on buildings yet our government is protecting the terrorists that threatened our very lives?

I dream of a day that the moral compass of this country is righted.  Where hard work and perseverance can make a difference.  Where the word of a person is his/her bond.  Where the good nature of people kicks in, instead of the government telling us what we should all have, do, believe in and teach our children.

I did NOT call to be ignored and that message will be clearly sent next election day!

Until Next Time, tell me what you think!

Hope and Change–Who would have thought?

Hello everyone…

I have been giving some thought to a few things.

Number ONE–During Obama’s campaign he promised many things.  Many things that he has not followed through with or that were downright lies.

Bipartisan my #%@!!!!

What I am seeing that is more amazing than anything.  People who don’t even agree, agree on one thing.  Things in Washington D.C. have to change.

I got an email from someone, who talked about joining a tea party protest.  She is 50 years old and realized that she enjoyed standing up for something she believed in and was willing to protest for.

Now I am a self-avowed conservative, non-partisan person.  I have gone from being disillusioned that ordinary people cannot make a difference, to realizing that the only thing that is going to save our country.  Ordinary people making a difference.   I have hope that ordinary people can change the direction of our country.

There is still a measure of “real” America out there, much larger than was originally thought.  The leftist agenda can scream “Right Wing Radicals” all they want.   How RADICAL is it when so many want the same thing?  You could call their socialist agenda radical.

It all goes back to one thing-a mission.

Our mission, is the pursuit of happiness.  Our instruction manual is the Constitution.  When actions are not in line with the mission, it is evident because things just don’t work right.  Things are horribly wrong in America, but not to the point that we will not stand up for it.  If things are tough, we can come through it–provided we are fighting for the America we have in the past.  The United States of America has stumbled but it is not laying down.  Our leaders may have forgotten ethics, the “mission” we believe in but be rest assured, we have not!  The Constitution states we are guaranteed the “pursuit of happiness,” it does not state we are guaranteed happiness.  It is not the right of every American to have everything taken care of for them.  However, we do have the right to pursue happiness, and the current agenda in Washington, D.C. is seriously hampering that right.  Are you tired of it yet?  Has the smoke cleared, a few mirrors broken?

I have a feeling that many more will come together in honor of that true mission–abiding by the manual.

Are you ready for change you can be PART of?  Change you can be proud to say you stood up for?

Until Next Time!

Email to Bob Nelson

I took a few minutes to write Bob Nelson.  I urge everyone to do the same!

Senator Nelson,

I started this letter a few times, Dear did not seem appropriate, neither did Mr.  A term of endearment or a sign of respect hardly seems to be appropriate for you.

You sold out to the party and the were bought by Harry Reid and Democratic Party to pass a piece of legislation that could not pass on it’s own merit.  You are a disgrace to politicians, to your constituents and America in general.

Not only will I provide monetary support to any person who opposes you in the next election but I will ensure that any Republican or Independent has my support for the rest of my natural life based on how I have seen the Democratic party conduct itself.

I have never been more disgusted with a piece of legislation, along with many other Americans.  I sit in disbelief that despite our urging you in particular sold your soul and political career for socialism in the United States.

It’s people like you that give politics a bad name.  You have done a huge disservice to your country and although your constituents won’t have to pay (as much) as the rest of us, they will indeed pay in the long for your force feeding foul legislation.  YOU put your senatorial stamp on it.  I know don’t care or you would voted otherwise.  The end justifies the means right?  You decide the greater good, but YOU are exempt from the ramifications of your decision.

Let’s hope the House has more spine than you, although the open bribery and disgusting conduct has been already illuminated there by people like Nancy Pelosi.  You are puppets in this game, how long before you realize that your puppeteer led you in the wrong direction?  Or maybe you do already and of course are following along with whoever pulls your strings or lines your pocket?

Disgusted United States Citizen,

Marcy Sowers

Doctor! Doctor! on National Review Online

Doctor! Doctor! on National Review Online.

How so very true!!!  I loved what was said here!

This is blatant corruption at work, something I believe is unacceptable regardless of whichever party you affiliate with!  Are you okay with the corruption in the Senate?

Polarization of America – Part II

I just read a post on Facebook that fully illustrates how polarized America is right now over healthcare.

First of all, why is it that it so many are lead to believe this is the ONLY chance in the world to fix healthcare.  When something is painted as the ONLY option, people start being frightened and overwhelmed with a sense of urgency.  I call BS. You listen to the shady politicians and slipstream media (thanks to my husband for that term) then you will think the ONLY chance to fix healthcare is NOW… If that is what you believe you may want to read another blog, I refuse to be forced into a stampede like an ignorant fool.

The country is being divided into Left and Right, Liberal and Conservative, Republican and Democrat and whose side of the fence do you sit on??  What if you don’t want to sit on either?  What if you don’t believe that 23 MILLION uninsured is acceptable given the huge cost the CBO is figuring.  Now I have a question, those 23 million uninured–how do they discount those folks?  Isn’t this supposed to be universal healthcare for everyone? Do you really want your healthcare decisions to be made by people like Harry Reid?????

The stimulus is failing, the economy is failing, unemployment is going up and taxation seems to be their only answer.  The debt is burgeoning and our children and grandchildren will be paying for the mistakes of herded chattle for a long time.

Demand a better solution; demand that our politicians have to pay for their insurance after they are done serving their terms; demand that illegals who don’t pay into taxes don’t receive benefits; demand insurance reform; demand pharmeceutical reform!

Divided people are a weakened voice, only to be arguing with each other while the wolves in Washington DC decide our fate for us.  What do you think?

The United States Constitution does not provide us with the right to health care.  It does provide our states to be responsible for the things not covered by the federal government.  Bring the power to the people, back to the states and demand your state do better.

Until Next Time!

US Senate…

I am just curious, what level of coverage this affords them???

“Most of us in the Senate are in the Federal Employees Health Benefit Program, a government-administered program. I don’t find any Republicans who find government health insurance repugnant bailing out of their own health insurance plan that they enjoy as members of Congress,” Durbin said.

I would really love to hear the details of what coverage they enjoy for life.  I am sure their coverage will pay for a mammogram if they are under 50…

I took a brief look at online information about what is covered for Federal Employees enrolled in one of the plans (in Alaska)–do you think our plan (the one they are trying to shove down our throats) will look like this???  I highly doubt it!

If the Senate had to use the same options as everyone else, I think the bill would have been dead a long time ago.  Let’s demand them to use the same exact option as a single mother of 2 who lives in an inner city.  Let’s demand that they have no preferential treatment when it comes to insurance.

Have a great day and until next time!
