Government Healthcare Will Eventually ‘Control the People’

Rep. Dingell Says ObamaCare Will Eventually ‘Control the People’

From WJR’s Paul W. Smith show, a Freudian slip from Rep. John Dingell. Smith asked why we’re waiting for 2014 to cover people.  Dingell said this in his defense:

“Let me remind you this [Americans allegedly dying because of lack of universal health care] has been going on for years. We are bringing it to a halt. The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.”

He’s right.  This is what the Health care bill is all about.  It’s not about health.  It’s about control.  Government’s job is not to control the people, it is to LISTEN to the people, and represent them, their interests and their needs.

Interesting slip of speech isn’t it?

Freedom Demands Action

The Statue of Liberty: Edward Moran

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.” —George Washington

There are no words I can use to adequately describe my horror at the vote which transpired last night.  It was a vote which flew in the face of the expressed will of the people, and threw aside the very principles of democracy.  That vote was nothing less than a declaration of war on the freedom of the American people, and the constitution which guarantees and protects that freedom.

While I may be at a loss for words, those over at Hot Air, aren’t.  In fact, they said it so well, I cheered when I read it.  Yes!  That is it!:

“As the voters of the United States ponder what to say, it would profit us to think long and hard about the freedom Democrats are trying to take from us tonight, and what freedom demands.

Yes, it makes demands. Freedom is not a gift. It is not given to you by the government, in a precise dosage that can be adjusted to match a politician’s diagnosis of what ails the body politic. Your forefathers won an impossible Revolution against an invincible foe to declare the self-evident truth that your rights descend from your Creator. Whether that Creator is a transcendent God, or a random combination of genetic material in the primordial soup, it is a power that existed before the first king assumed his throne, or the first president was elected. Liberty burns in your imagination, flows through your veins, and rings through your words.

This radiant idea has burned through all the bloody clouds of the last three centuries: you are not clay to be sculpted by the will of another. You are not a racially inferior inconvenience, to be marched into a concentration camp. You aren’t a class enemy to be exiled by dictators. You are not a disposable cog in the machinery of collectivist economics, or a mouth to be starved by the failure of collective agriculture. You are an American, and through a dereliction of their duty as elected representatives, the Democrats have forced you to choose whether you will retain the full measure of the honor and dignity your Constitution asserts for you. “

CNN, Huffington Post Urging Gang-Land Violence Against Political Foes

Who knew?  Elect a black man to the presidency of the United States and now advocating “gangsta” violence against your political foes is kosher?  I heard about this story and had to read the actual quotes for myself.

These aren’t some fringe kooks, well Huffington post maybe, but CNN?? :

“Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ‘em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.”  —CNN columnist Roland Martin, “Time for Obama to go ‘gangsta’ on GOP

“You’ve given it your best shot, you’ve tried numerous times to talk with the Republicans, to negotiate, to meet them halfway on every single matter before the American people. But they hate you for many reasons. It’s time you break kneecaps (bold in original). It’s time to destroy the Republican Party. They don’t deserve a seat at the table when all they want to do is score political points by being the Party of No.”  –Huffington Post columnist David Bourgeois , “Obama Better Start Breaking Kneecaps”

…and they call the moms with strollers at tea parties the dangerous home-grown radicals?

CNN, Huffington Post Urge Violence Against Republicans

CRI: Reinventing Education— California High School Pushes One-sided, Pro-Homosexual Bias on Kids… Again

See this from Capitol Resource Institute:

High School Welcomes Gay Speakers, but Rejects HIV-Positive Christian Speaker

A Bay Area high school that attracted controversy last year for its “Days of Diversity” program is again welcoming pro-gay speakers. But the school has rejected a request by a student Christian club to host an HIV-positive speaker whose experience with homosexuality proved to be life-threatening.

Castro Valley High School sparked controversy last year by hosting several questionable presenters, including Rev. Arlene K Nehring, a lesbian minister who talked to students in math and science classes about her gay wedding, encouraged them to “come out” to God, their families and themselves, and invited them to a gay prom at her church. Because of the religious overtones in past and pending presentations, students in the Revelation Club were surprised when the school rejected their request to host Christopher Yuan because of “separation of church and state.” Mr. Yuan is HIV-positive and had been invited by the students to speak on the topic “Christian, Gay, and Celibate.” In addition, it appears that the school has blocked links relating to Mr. Yuan, though continuing to allow access to gay websites.

Attorneys for Pacific Justice Institute sent a letter to the high school late last week, demanding that CVHS drop its illegal viewpoint discrimination.

CRI’s Karen England commented, “It is unfortunate that the school’s so-called diversity does not extend to Christians on campus. This type of favoritism in the classroom is unconstitutional and is sending the wrong message to our students.”

There has been no word whether Castro Valley High School has responded to Pacific Justice Institute’s letter and whether or not they will welcome Mr. Yuan to speak at the school after all.

Obama IN HIS OWN WORDS: Nationalized Health Care Will ELIMINATE Private Insurance

Obama Declares War on Capitalism and American Insurance Companies

Single payer socialized medicine.  Government-run health care— all the efficiency of the DMV, all the humanity of the IRS.  Is there even a question that the President of the United States is advocating here?

“Are we going to let the special interests win again? Or are we going to make this vote a victory for the American people?” — White House status update

I am not a special interest.  I am an American citizen who believes in democracy and free enterprise, and I am not alone.   The D.C. switchboard on Capitol Hill has been slammed past capacity for four days straight with the frantic and outraged calls of concerned Americans wanting to know why their representatives are not listening to the people.  An overwhelming majority of the American people are against this bill.  Are they special interests too?  The only special interest I have is in the personal well being of my nation, my family and my children.

Socialism is a broken system.  I do not want the health of my family dependent on a system run by the government, and neither apparently, do the rest of the American people.

Obama the Messiah? Try Moses in the Desert: CA Congressmen Enticed With Water Provision

Fish or Families?  The Congress Created Dust bowl….that was the question and the resulting controversy last year in California’s breadbasket.  California’s Central Valley had their water forcibly cut off last year by courts and politicians deaf to the needs of citizens and farmers.  Now mysteriously, two votes switch on Obama’s healthcare plan and miraculously, water flows in the ravaged desert.

DEAL WATCH: Code Red Moves Cardoza and Costa to “Yes” Votes on Gov’t Healthcare Takeover After Water Deal

As a vote approaches on Obama and Pelosi’s government takeover of healthcare, Code Red is now considering two supposedly “undecided” California Democrats, Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costa, to now be “yes” votes.

The U.S. Department of Interior announced yesterday that it is increasing water allocations for the Central Valley of California, a region that depends on these water allocations to support local agriculture and jobs. The region has recently been starved for water and as a result unemployment has soared.  Not surprisingly, Cardoza and Costa had a hand in the announcement:

“Typically, Reclamation would release the March allocation update around March 22nd, but moved up the announcement at the urging of Senators Feinstein and Boxer, and Congressmen Costa and Cardoza.”  —NRCC

With farmers fleeing the state, going bankrupt and with the unemployment rate in farming communities as high as 41 %, I have one question.  If this was possible, why did the dems hold out earlier?

Last year when people were suffering and losing their jobs, rallies were held, letters were written, congressmen called…. EVERY  effort was made to help those farmers, and every door closed firmly in their faces.

Now I’m grateful to see water finally flowing to the farmers, but honestly, I have to ask— What has changed?  Why is water being made available now?  Why this news after more than a year of suffering?  Why this announcement now, within minutes of two key democrats switching their votes on healthcare?  Was corruption the key?

Is democracy the price for water?

Those who want to know the latest outrage on the Central Valley water front, check this story from the American Spectator:

Emptying Reservoirs in the Middle of a Drought

By

ANYONE DOUBTING THAT OUR nation’s environmental and economic policies can get seriously out of whack from time to time need only look to the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Located in California’s Central Valley, between the state’s capital city and Stockton, it is where the American, Mokelumne, Cosumnes, and Calaveras Rivers flow into the larger Sacramento and San Joaquin. It is also where the saddest agricultural saga since the Depression-era Dust Bowl is now playing, as the waters from those rivers flow beneath San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and out to sea. As they flow unimpeded to the Pacific, those waters are also washing out to sea the livelihoods of tens of thousands of farm workers and agricultural business owners. It is an economic as well as human tragedy.

Beautiful To Him by Rachel Thibodeau

Countering the many twisted messages of a mixed up world, comes this one beautiful message to women.  Pass it on to your daughters.

Beautiful To Him

by Rachel Thibodeau

So much noise, so much peace destroyed,

I can hardly hear the voice, leading me through the void,

So much noise.

The world’s little lies,

Destruction in disguise, opportunities to compromise,

To make me beautiful in their eyes,

But I’m not gonna buy the world’s little lies.

Because I define myself and find my beauty in the light He gives.

I’m refined by His divine intentions every day I live.

It doesn’t matter what the world believes,

Or what they say that beauty means,

It comes from within,

I want to be beautiful to Him.

He’s given me His trust, so I’ll be strong enough,

To run from a dangerous touch, I don’t need that kind of love,

I don’t need that crutch, He’s given me his trust.

I define myself and find my beauty in the light He gives.

I’m refined by His divine intentions every day I live.

It doesn’t matter what the world believes,

Or what they say that beauty means,

It comes from within,

I want to be beautiful to Him.

I know how to shine, my life’s not really mine.

It’s not about a worldly climb, it’s all about His design.

So in His eyes, I want to shine.

Because I define myself and find my beauty in the light He gives.

I’m refined by His divine intentions every day I live.

It doesn’t matter what the world believes,

Or what they say that beauty means,

It comes from within,

I want to be beautiful to Him.

I want to live to have His peace,

And feel the holiness He seeks.

It comes from within.

I want to be beautiful… to Him.

Two Peas Same Liberal Pod – Tom Campbell Barbara Boxer Proposition 8 California

Who needs more of the same?  No thanks!

Tom Campbell and Barbara Boxer are just reruns of each other.  It’s time to call them on it.

According to the Associated Press,
Campbell campaign spokesman James Fisfis said Campbell has made no secret that he opposed Proposition 8.

Campbell believes that people should be allowed to marry whether they’re gay or straight, he said.

He said single-issue voters opposed to gay marriages are likely to support one of Campbell’s Republican opponents, former Hewlett Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina or state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Both believe marriage should be between a man and a woman, their campaigns said Monday.

Marriage is such a defining issue in the nation right now.  Families are under fire, this marriage issue can’t be ignored.  It matters to the people who matter most to us, our families– and especially our children.

See this from NOM:

National Organization For Marriage Launches Hard-Hitting California TV Ad Campaign Against Sen. Barbara Boxer & Tom Campbell:
“Two Peas, Same Liberal Pod”

(WASHINGTON, DC) — Today the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) launched a new TV ad campaign in California entitled, “Two peas, same liberal pod,” highlighting Republican Senate candidate Tom Campbell’s support for same-sex marriage, in addition to his support for income tax and gas tax increases — the same positions shared by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA).

NOM Executive Director Brian Brown explained: “GOP voters believe in tax cuts, national defense, and the family. They oppose same-sex marriage by a 4-1 margin. They deserve to know that Tom Campbell is a pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, pro-tax Republican — not much different from Barbara Boxer on many key issues.”

The ad began airing today on TV stations across the state and shows video clips from Tom Campbell and Barbara Boxer, ending with these words: “Two peas, same liberal pod. It’s time for conservative leadership.”
