Another day that will live in infamy…

Today, our elected officials took a giant leap toward socialist rule in the United States of America.

What true American is not disgusted?

What true American does not see this is socialism in our land, thrust upon us by the electorate that refuses to listen?

What true American disagrees that health care could be improved?

For years I have stuck to the belief that I can be bi-partisan and vote on issues and not on party lines.  I suppose the one thing the Democrats have done, in addition to Sunday Bloody Sunday, is either made me a staunch Republican or ready to join arms with the Tea Party.  I have yet to decide but it’s one of the two.  At this point I will support both of them just to be rid of the Democrat socialist bull.

The liberal has taken deep root in our educational system.  The liberal influence in our educational system is ridiculous.  The moral decay of our country abounds, yet is it more heinous to have “under God” in the pledge?  But it’s okay to have books that talk about sex with 5th graders?  Global warming as part of their education?  I cannot wait to read my daughter’s social studies book with her next year and tell her the whole truth.  Something they surely won’t do.  You cannot escape liberal socialist ideals in Academia.  Ideals are one thing and good to aspire to, but not at the expense of the truth.  How many of you can name instances where ignoring mistakes in history led to repeating them?

With Freddy and Fannie, and now student loans in the government’s back pocket things in the financial aspect is not looking up either.  Unemployment continues to be high 10.4% in February 2010.  I guess Obama is looking to fill 16,000 jobs within the IRS.  What kind of Americans sign up for that job?  Hmmm desperate people who are about to lose their homes and where 1 in 10 are unemployed.  It is fortunate for Obama and his ilk that the liberal have some chattel to choose from.  They will get their good government job.  They will penalize us for not signing up for nationalized healthcare through the most terrifying federal agency the IRS.  The IRS can freeze your bank accounts, take what it wants, take your home and possessions and I don’t know about you, but I have heard how understanding they are through the whole process too.

So how many people are going to be imprisoned for failing to pay their healthcare tax?  What are they going to do with these people?  If I could not pay, would I be put in the only prison available in my community, a maximum security prison where I worked?  Or, would they have to devise some other forms of incarceration?  My mind goes to internment camps and detention facilities specially created to hold the new sort of criminal – the resistor.

Non-profit organizations like Acorn.  I don’t think I need to type more about that.  How about the Czars?

Now, thanks to our electorate, the deemocrats will soon to be rooted in our doctor’s offices.  The government’s miserable failure of Medicaid, the VA healthcare system and Indian Health Services were just not enough.  They have to fail on a grand level – but this is not just a small segment of the population.  It will hit home when grandma is not deemed young enough to save, when preventative care is deemed unnecessary and when it is deemed that there are no surgical times available for a child who is in need of an appendectomy.  At that point, when personally affected and the realization sinks in–it will be too late.  The giant cogs will be crushing along in their slow governmental way.

So, it is for this and many other reasons I will support anyone who has the moxie to stand up to them.  I eagerly await the law suits and I know that many others do too.  I won’t deny that I won’t relish elections come November.  I will be eating popcorn with gobs of butter and salt, if that’s still legal, and cheering on conservative Republicans or Tea Party Patriots take out the Democrats.

This speech came from one of our Presidents…

It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes. Distinctions in society will always exist under every just government. Equality of talents, of education, or of wealth can not be produced by human institutions.

~Andrew Jackson, 07/10/1832

So for the sheep, chattel and plain old ignorant… you role is to improve yourselves.  Your right is to be allowed the pursuit of happiness, not to be handed everything you believe you deserve.

Our forefathers did not have things handed to them, they made this country great.  Look at communism and where it led.  Look at soft-socialist countries and their medical horrors that the liberals won’t acknowledge.

Are you ready to do your part?  Now is not the time to roll over and say “there’s nothing I can do.”

Begich’s Reply – The best Deem of ALL! MUST READ!

Yet another testament how the elected are NOT listening to their constituents.

Wonder what Obama and his ilk promised him?  Either he got a sweet back room deal or he is absolutely brainwashed by his party’s rhetoric.  Either way, he has no spine and is willing to sell out Alaskans and Alaskan Constitutional Rights to the Obama movement to socialist America.


March 19, 2010

Dear Mrs. Sowers:

Thank you for contacting me regarding health care reform. I appreciate hearing Alaskans opinions, both pro and con, on this important issue.

As of this letter, the Senate reform bill awaits final action in the House. It is my hope Congress will incorporate the best ideas, no matter where they come from, and move forward soon with a comprehensive bill. I have already shared my thoughts on what Alaska needs with Senate leadership.

We must act. With reform delayed Alaskans are contacting me about health insurance premiums rising even more drastically. For example, the Anchorage property management company is seeing a 64 percent jump for family insurance policies this year. The Juneau nursing home is paying a 27 percent hike for 2010; when they shopped around the only other quote was for a 37 percent increase. Or the self-employed Alaska couple who couldn’t afford a 60 percent premium increase and instead raised their deductibles so high all they have now is a plan to cover only medical catastrophes.

The Senate reform bill I voted for will reduce the federal budget deficit. It will end the status quo of ballooning insurance and medical costs, patients denied coverage and families in financial ruin because of illness. Even healthy, insured Alaskans are being hit by a hidden tax charging them for medical costs incurred by those not covered.

The economy is stymied by these increases. Families have less disposable income. The majority of recently surveyed Anchorage businesses listed soaring health insurance costs as the number one barrier to growth.

My principles for reform are clear – providing Alaskans the security of:

o No discrimination for pre-existing conditions,
o No exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles or co-pays,
o No cost-sharing for preventative care,
o No dropping of coverage for the sick or seriously ill,
o No gender discrimination,
o No lifetime caps on how much care insurance companies will cover,
o Children eligible for family coverage until they turn 26.

The Senate-passed bill also reduces the deficit. Because the government is a major health provider, delivering care more efficiently significantly reduces outlays in years to come. The non-partisan budget office says the measure cuts federal spending by more than $100 billion over the next decade and up to $1 trillion in the second.

The Senate bill includes several of my amendments: a panel to improve federal health care in Alaska, increased loan forgiveness for thousands of new primary care providers and added funding for community hospitals. I also helped author a well-received cost-containment amendment that cuts prices for consumers, increases value and innovation in the health care system and saves hundreds of millions of dollars.

No one who supports reform is trying to win a popularity contest. I’m doing it because I firmly believe reform will help relieve the burden on hard-working families and businesses while reducing deficit spending.

Many components of the Senate bill are exactly what I talked about and supported during my campaign, and I will continue to work hard to make sure we finish the job. The stakes are too high not to move forward.

Thank you again for contacting me about health insurance reform. As the 111th Congress moves forward, please continue to share your thoughts.

Enclosure

Sincerely,
Mark Begich
U.S. Senator

Begich attached two files to the email, one on on Health Reform Facts and an article from the LA Times.

Do I care? Do I believe the bull he is trying to pawn off on me? NO!

Why are insurance premiums so high? How about allowing people to buy insurance across state lines? How about providing some tort reform so medical providers don’t have to pay huge medical malpractice insurance and order tests they don’t feel are necessary? Why doesn’t he mention in here, that this horrid piece of legislation changes not only healthcare, the largest government takeover of all? But now they have rolled into it student loans, making the government the only source of student loans?

How many IRS agents do they figure in?

Well an article I found states this:

The IRS, the agency responsible for enforcing tax laws, will have to hire a small army of new employees to monitor the health insurance compliance of roughly 300 million Americans and collect the penalties imposed on those who don’t meet the health care bill’s individual mandate to carry health insurance. Some estimates put the number of new tax collectors at more than 16,000.

This is unreal.

Read on if you wish.

How will the IRS be involved in your healthcare?  What new power will they have if we let them continue on this power play of force?

The sickening thing is that the people that really give two %#@% about what is going on are not the kind of people to incite revolution and force the hand of the government to stop this nonsense.  But maybe we should be… at this point.  If half the people in this country  knew what they were in for.

Is their plan to “deem it passed” constitutional?  I think, not.  Read on from Edwin Meese III, former US Attorney General.

Quite possibly the BEST thing I have read today comes from Deroy Murdock and his article on National Review, here are the last two paragraphs!  PLEASE SHARE THIS ARTICLE WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW!  SHARE IT ON FACEBOOK, MYSPACE, YOUR BLOG, YOUR EMAIL!  I deem it!  I LOVE IT!

Meanwhile, House leaders grow increasingly shady as they pound this legislative gruel down the gullets of the gagging American people. Team Pelosi may attempt to pass the Senate bill through a “self-executing rule,” whereby House members would approve a reconciliation proposal, whereupon Obamacare will be “deemed to have passed” the House without a pesky yea-or-nay vote. Pelosi praised this subterfuge: “I like it because people don’t have to vote on the Senate bill.”

If Obama, Pelosi, and other Democrats pull this scam, Americans should deny them the cash they crave. Come April 15, citizens should tell Washington that they “deemed to pay” their taxes, and then pocket their earnings.

Is that not just the most beautiful thing?  I deem my taxes have been paid…

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!

Sunflowers in Siberia – Guest Writer Mark Sowers

Here is a piece written by my husband.  I am so proud of this man and love the way he thinks!  What do you think?

Climategate. Copenhagen. Al Gore. Greenhouse gases. The debate over climate change continues.

Allow me to offer a few thoughts on the matter.

There appears to be a dearth of news coverage regarding the hacked emails. This is news only in that there is no news. Unless you are a reader of publications such as National Review or The American Spectator, or a viewer of Glenn Beck, you probably don’t even know that there is some controversy. The slipstream media (as I prefer to call them, since most noteworthy news seems to slip by them) has utterly failed to cover the story, never mind investigate it. I guess they were too absorbed with fact-checking Sarah Palin’s new book. I understand no one fact-checked either of Obama’s two books… but I digress.

The Copenhagen events (how did chewing tobacco come to be named after a European city anyway?) were very telling. The thugs, strongmen, and dictators of the world’s’ “developing” countries, showed up, like they do at the U.N., with their hands out, wanting more and more from the “developed” world. I would be inclined to give it to them, were I confident that those fine, upstanding individuals who attended the climate conference would not simply confiscate any aid, er, I mean money stolen from European and American taxpayers, for their own self aggrandizement. Does anyone really believe that Robert Mugabe is going to see to it that any funds his country receives as a result of a worldwide climate resolution actually make it to his people? Or Chavez? Ahmadinejad? Of course not. The latter two will simply use anything they get for further repressing their people and  increasing their stores of arms.

The term “greenhouse gases”, makes me wonder a bit. Aren’t greenhouses something people use to grow plants? So let’s extrapolate a bit. If the planet is really getting warmer, and I for one don’t believe it is, then how about we look at how that might affect things. Isn’t it true that people all over the world are starving to death? Yes? Ok. Clouds bring rain right? Good, we settled that. If the world gets warmer, is it safe to say that there might be more clouds? More rain? That’s a possibility? Alright. Isn’t most famine caused by drought? Yeah? So if there are more clouds, more rain, then the droughts would be, theoretically, alleviated. Doesn’t that mean world hunger might become a thing of the past? Those in the “developing” countries might be able to “develop” the means to feed themselves, without aid.

Ice. I read somewhere that about 2% of the world’s water is contained in glaciers and ice caps. I highly doubt that all glaciers the world over will ever totally and completely cease to exist. Therefore I believe its safe to say that even if 50% of the glaciers in the world melted, wouldn’t we still have a full 1% of the world’s water contained in ice? Yes? I did the math correctly? Good. So what would happen if the level of the ocean increased by 1%? Would the tide rise another inch or so? Maybe 3 or 4 inches? Is that enough to completely inundate the Maldives? The entire Eastern seaboard of the US? I kinda doubt it. And wouldn’t some of that 1% increase be dissipated through clouds, rain, rivers, lakes, ponds, swamps, bogs, wetlands? Somehow I don’t see it all ending up in the oceans…

Good ol’ Uncle Al. Heard somewhere that Comrade Gore was worth somewhere around 4 or 5 million bucks when he left the office of Vice President. In the time he’s been gone, his net worth has increased to somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million. How did that happen? Could it be “green” energy investments? The ones he’s telling us all that we need so we don’t all just wither like a raisin in the sun. Also understand that he charges BIG bucks to give speeches. Hundreds of thousands just to talk. But its in his speaking contracts that he is not to be asked any questions by the audience that are not pre-approved by himself or his handlers. Anyone ever heard of censorship? Remember that whole flap about the Parents Music Resource Center some years back? The folks who wanted to put warning labels on records and cds to let parents know that here there be profanity? Remember who was the figurehead of that organization? Bet you didn’t guess correctly – it was the exalted Tipper Gore, crazy Uncle Al’s (is this debatable?) better half. Maybe censorship just runs in the family. Can I buy stock in censorship? I’d like to be worth over $100 million too, and I would be, if I could just hitch my “green” Radio Flyer to Crazy Al’s bandwagon. Hope he bought carbon credits for all the emissions we’re going to be blowing out…

So what really happens if the world is warming up? And hasn’t this happened before? Here’s what I really think. If you care. We have seasons – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. The temperature gets colder, then it warms up, then it gets cold again. Happens every year. You could write a calendar around it. Wait, sorry, that idea was already taken. Moving along. So it seems logical to me that if we have yearly seasons, maybe we have similar seasons as far as the worldwide climate is concerned. I recall in grade school, more years ago than I would like to admit, being told that we were still in an ice age. Now suddenly that’s all changed. The ice is disappearing and the world is turning into a blast furnace. Or maybe its just climatological summer. Whatever the case, there is one thing I’d love to see if the planet is getting warmer – Sunflowers in Siberia.
