A Battered Nation

Wednesday, 26. January 2011 9:28

If I hear one more panelist on a show like “Face the Nation” state that Barack Obama seems to be “moving toward the center” – simply because someone wrote him a moderate-sounding speech to read- I’m going to scream.

Bloody murder.

Barack a “centrist”? Where’s the evidence? This man has done nothing but push through far Left policies for 2 solid years, including his final push of legislation during the Lame Duck congress. Barack Hussein Obama grew up a radical, became even more radical in college, won the title of the most liberal Senator in Congress when he was there, helped to get far Left progressives elected to office in the 1990′s, was a member of the socialist “New Party”, taught about Saul Alinsky as a college professor, sat in a church of a radical cleric for 20 years, and when he became president, he surrounded himself with radical czars and advisers.

The man is anything BUT a centrist.

So we’re suddenly to believe that the zebra has changed its stripes? The radical Leftist has “seen the light” and is suddenly willing to negotiate with the likes of Michele Bachmann and Rand Paul?

C’mon folks. Let’s not be stupid.

At what point does an abused woman- or an “abused nation”- look at the abuser and realize that the apologies- and the promises – are nothing more than empty rhetoric? At what point would a Battered Women’s Shelter tell a woman that the husband who has promised and promised to “be better” will never change? At what point should a battered and beaten nation look at its abusive administration and sing, “We’re not going to take it anymore?”

We saw Obama promise to create jobs 2 years ago. It didn’t happen. We watched Obama promise to create jobs last year. It didn’t happen again. We’ve lost quality jobs during both years, pacifying the jobless with endless months of unemployment benefits- which we can’t afford. Students in college are becoming perpetual students, as jobs dry up and they have no other alternative. “Summer jobs”- those unskilled, underpaid jobs that taught us the value of a good education- are gone.

In their place we have the hollow category of “Saved Jobs”, a term which implies that anyone who still has a job should be grateful to Obama and his merry men for allowing them to go to work and pay their taxes to the government- so others don’t have to.

Obama pushed through the Health Care Bill, bribing members of Congress with more of his empty promises. How many of the Congressmen who lost elections in November can now see that Obama was just sparring with them, toying with them all along? The jabs he threw at both Republicans and unsuspecting Democrats during those negotiations were cheap-shots, punches to the groin which brought them down.

Yet now he wants to play nice with those who survived.

He claims that those days are over, those cheap shots are a thing of the past. Now that William Daley is on board- and Rahm, David Axelrod, and Robert Gibbs are gone- Obama is a changed man…his days of using and abusing are over.

Wait a minute…. Axelrod and Gibbs are leaving to help run Obama’s 2012 campaign. Wouldn’t that insinuate that we’ll be seeing the “old”, the “radical”, the “abusive” Obama back in the White House in 2012 if he wins? Obama’s not distancing himself from these guys, he’s simply moving them around, shuffling the deck so the American people are fooled once again.

Gosh, those dumb Americans are so easily fooled.

Sadly, that’s a true statement.

Americans need to wake up to the abuse they’ve just endured. Their money was stolen to dole out $24,000 per Clunker in an effort to “green” up the country. Their money was stolen to subsidize windmills and solar panels which are ineffective. Their money was stolen to pay off GE, AIG, Goldman Sachs, and a bunch of wealthy banks who had lost money in the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac ponzi scheme. Their investments were stolen when this administration decided to diss those who had stock in General Motors, instead taking the savings from average Americans and giving it to the auto union. Their money was stolen and given to illegal immigrants for their health care, their education, their unemployment, their welfare needs. Their money was stolen to put scanners and gropers in the airports to “assure” our safety.

Yet somehow, the American tax dollars never made it to our Southern border for a fence or extra security.

Obama has taken the American people and battered them with his policies and regulations. He’s declared CO2 a “known pollutant” so he can control it, tax it, and regulate it. He’s pushing legislation that will control our internet, our radio, our communication. He’s pushing for gun control, using the Giffords’ shooting as fodder for his legislation. He’s appointed a Medicare Czar, Donald Berwick, who believes that rationing health care- aka “Death Panels”- are important and necessary.

And don’t get me started on the rest of the czars. Suffice it to say, a “centrist” wouldn’t surround himself with Obama’s hand-selected men and women, most of whom have their feet in the foundation of radical socialism and even Marxism.

Look them up if you don’t believe me.

The punches thrown by these radicals are just starting to produce bruises on our American way of life. The blue and purple discoloration is just beginning to rise to the surface and the black eyes are soon to follow.

We need to understand what Obama is doing. He is not BECOMING a centrist, he’s PLAYING a centrist. He’s merely an actor, a man who will do whatever it takes to achieve his next goal of reelection….

It’s like the abuser who pretends to have changed. He brings his wife flowers and chocolates for awhile, showing her the side of him that she fell in love with. He lays low for a couple of months, knowing that he needs to be on his best behavior to get back into her good graces….and then POW!! As soon as the woman trusts the abuser again, he gives her another left jab.

Obama’s next jab will be in November of 2012. Until then, he’ll be a flower-giving, chocolate-adorning president, one who “just wants us all to get along.” He’ll be the guy Americans fell in love with.

Not the abuser we’ve come to know….

Liberal Education Wrapped In A “Catholic” Package.

Monday, 3. January 2011 8:35

We all know that kids who attend public schools will be indoctrinated in liberal ideology year after year.

Sadly, it’s a given.

Those who want to avoid that indoctrination have only two other choices: Spend a ton of money and send your child to private school or drive yourself nuts as you home school your kids.

I’m already nuts- just ask my husband. Homeschooling wasn’t for me.

Most of our kids were sent to private, Catholic schools. When we originally made that decision, we naively hoped to avoid the liberal teachings because we wanted our children to have a more “balanced” education, one that steered clear of liberal teachings and included morality, values- and, yes, a bit of faith.

Strangely enough, I’ve received quite an education over the past 15 years. I’m the one who’s no longer naive. I’m the parent who has watched as time and time again, these Catholic schools have proven themselves to be no more than public schools with some theology and a hefty price tag. Oh, they do a great job of making sure the boys tuck in their uniform shirts. They hold weekly mass and allow prayer in the classroom. They collect mittens at Christmastime and take some of their students on mission trips to help the poor. But in the classroom where the actual teaching occurs, the same liberal ideology that we see in public schools throughout the country is alive and well. Behind closed doors, most of the teachers at these institutions are happily sharing their liberal agenda with their students.

My son came home from his private school the other day with the news that he is watching “An Inconvenient Truth” - Al Gore’s “global warming” documentary- in religion class.

In religion class.

I decided that a call to the teacher was in order, especially in light of the current data which challenges the “facts” in this movie. As a conservative, I wanted to be assured that the kids would also hear the other side of the argument.

Mr. M was happy to take my call. He cheerfully explained that his intent with this film was simply to follow the Bishops’ lead and teach the children to be good stewards of the earth. I asked if he would also enlighten the children about the false science in the movie like the debunked theory about the Himalayan glaciers melting and the equally disturbing lie about the rainforests being destroyed. Oh, and the new evidence indicating that the hockey stick graph is a contrived farce. I asked if he’d explain the emails from East Anglia University, where the scientists discussed ways to alter the global warming statistics to their advantage. I asked if he’d tell the kids about Lord Christopher Monckton who took this documentary into the British courts and prevailed in a judgment proving many of Gore’s “truths” to be manufactured hoaxes.

I asked him if he would explain to them about Dr. Lizden, the scientist at MIT who just finished a massive study in which he proves that the “Greenhouse Effect” doesn’t exist in our atmosphere. I wanted to know if he’d mention that about 70 new scientists have now jumped OFF the global warming bandwagon they were once a part of.

I even asked Mr. M if he’d like me to come in and speak to the class- you know, to give the kids both sides of the argument, or in a liberal’s words, “to be fair.”

Mr. M didn’t care for my offer. It doesn’t appear that he wants “fair” in his classroom.

As we continued to speak, I discovered that my child was also required to watch the movie, “Who Killed the Electric Car?” and take notes on it. Again, this is for religion class.

Mr. M explained that “pollution is a terrible problem”, one that the students needed to learn about if they were to be good stewards of the earth. I told him that I have no problem with him teaching the kids about caring for the earth, I simply don’t like the way in which he is doing it. Indoctrination, especially with false “facts”, is not the way for our kids to learn. I’ve heard from other teachers and students that Mr. M doesn’t allow discussion in his classroom because he feels that he, alone, is the expert on most issues.

I talked with Mr. M about the current administration in Washington, people like Nancy Pelosi who fly around in their special, high-carbon footprint jets because they don’t want to fly commercial with the rest of us. I mentioned that the socialist agenda that these folks in Washington are trying to cram down our throats is diabolically opposed to the very religion that he claims to love.

He seemed perplexed…

Look to any country that espouses socialism and Marxism. People must pray in private. Ask anyone who’s lived in the Soviet Union or South Vietnam about the ability to practice religion in their former countries. Look at the empty churches in Europe, buildings which are no longer functioning as places of prayer, but have turned into museums and tourist attractions.

I told Mr. M that the people who promote global warming are the same folks who want to take “In God We Trust” off of the dollar and take religious monuments from our government buildings. They are the folks who have tried to shut down bible study groups in Arizona and California. They are the folks who won’t allow our kids to sing “God Bless America” in public school.

Sadly, Mr. M is a very religious man, he just can’t connect the dots. He, himself, is caught up in the hype, caught up in the liberal way of thinking. He’s been conditioned by our society to blindly believe what these liberals dish out- not looking down the road at the destruction their policies will have on our society.

And he’s passing it along to our kids. My kids.

All of this great indoctrination for a mere $11,000/year.

Mr. M and other liberal teachers don’t particularly like parents like me. We stifle their utopic thought. We challenge their so-called “truth”. They “just want to live in a world where everybody just loves everybody, where we all exist on one, big, happy earth.”

And clouds are made of edible cotton candy….

Note to Mr. M: Socialism and communism are utopic in theory only… read a couple of historical memoirs and you’ll see just how “loving” Stalin, Mao, and Hitler were.

To be fair, there are advantages to private education, but it’s important to understand that “private” or “Catholic” doesn’t mean conservative. It doesn’t even necessarily mean “pro-life”. The teachers at these private schools have their own agenda, and most of them are teaching the same liberal crap that you get at a public school.

My advice? Home school your kids…

even if it makes you nuts.

Cover-ups, Cover-ups Everywhere.

Monday, 22. November 2010 8:33

Remember the phantom “missile” that soared through the skies 30 miles off the coast of Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago?

NASA was mum. The military was mum. After a few days, the Defense Department assured us that this was a simple contrail from an airplane- nothing to worry about. Yet listen to military experts who know a thing or two about aircraft and you’ll hear a completely different story. This contrail, according to these guys, couldn’t come from an airplane because of the location, size, and shape of it. It most definitely came from a missile, probably one from a foreign country because of the color.

The color?

You see, the United States takes precautions to ensure our missiles have clean, white contrails, and this plume was loaded with dirt, giving it a brown/black hue. It seems that the most likely culprit is China, a country which just may have been sending the United States a message… possibly a message about the way we’re spending their money.

So who gave the orders to lie to the American people?

According to WND: Dr. Lyle J. Rapacki of Sentinel Intelligence Services, LLC, states “the decision to officially announce that North America was not threatened and all the excitement was due to an aircraft leaving a contrail is a decision that reaches beyond the four-star general level and goes directly to a decision made by the commander-in-chief.

Commander in Chief? Huh.

This missile incident made me think of a story my husband told me back in the late 1990′s. He had just returned from a golf outing with a high-ranking (really high) TWA executive, a man who was privy to the happenings within the company. My husband told me that this executive looked him in the eye and stated unequivocally that TWA flight 800, the one that blew up over the coast of Long Island in July, 1996 and killed 230 people was brought down by a missile.

It did not explode from an electrical problem, as we were told.

Did the government lie to us back then, too?

Bingo. It seems that our government didn’t only lie, top officials covered up, distorted, and fabricated evidence to support their lie. I know these two “missile stories” are completely different, but the level of deceit involved in each reaches all the way to the Oval Office and should make us pause….

Jack Cashill has done an enormous amount of research on what happened to TWA flight 800 and interestingly enough, his findings mirror those of the TWA executive who spoke to my husband. His discoveries found evidence of a cover-up that is even darker and more twisted than any of us could imagine….

Let’s go back to July, 1996. Elections were coming up for President Clinton in just a couple of months and it seemed as though he would cruise to an easy victory if nothing went wrong. The last thing he or Hillary needed was a devastating airplane accident, especially one that involved either friendly or enemy fire. It was much better to let the public believe that this was simply an electrical accident.

From the beginning, the National Transportation and Safety Board (NTSB) felt as though a criminal act had occurred. There were 270 eyewitnesses who went to the FBI with claims of seeing a missile attack on the plane. Some took still photos, others had video. A few of the eyewitnesses were aviation experts who wouldn’t mistake a missile strike for a plume of smoke.

Almost immediately, President Clinton asked a woman by the name of Jamie Gorelick to take over the investigation of the accident. Gorelick was the Deputy Attorney General and had no experience in either aviation or conducting an investigation. The first thing she did was to take power from the NTSB and give the investigation to the FBI- a group who reported directly to her.

Although this was illegal, no one seemed to notice.

Clinton knew full-well that the FBI was inept when it came to plane accidents. The NTSB were the experts.

Which is exactly why Clinton and Gorelick wanted the NTSB out of the equation. It’s much easier to stage a cover-up with inept accomplices.

Oh, it gets better. Gorelick’s second scheme involved the media. She deliberately took news coverage away from every news outlet except the New York Times, claiming it was easier to deal with just one entity. The FBI was only allowed to feed information to the NY Times, essentially controlling the “propaganda” to an easily-controlled and sympathetic source.

Of the 270 eyewitnesses to the incident who had come forward, the NY Times interviewed …...zero.

Americans never heard the tales of these eyewitnesses.

After a 4 year “investigation” , the FBI declared that the plane had experienced an explosion in the fuel tank caused by a short circuit. The case was essentially closed.

Yet, the evidence didn’t match the final report. For example, the fuel in the airplane is inflammable. Tests done on similar fuel show that even lighting a match to the fuel will not cause it to start on fire. A simple short circuit couldn’t possibly have exploded the fuel. Also, the explosion would have caused the airplane to have exploded from the inside-out, yet the damaged wreckage clearly showed signs that the damage came from the outside-in. (indicating a missile strike). There was even evidence that the wreckage was physically altered to match the story concocted by Gorelick and Clinton.

Again, no one seemed to care.

There’s an interesting epilogue to this story: In May, 1997, Jamie Gorelick was selected to be the new Vice Chair of the Fannie Mae Board, although she didn’t have a lick of experience. She was given a paycheck of $4 Million per year for the next 6 years.

And no one asked why.

Oh, that’s not all. After September 11th, she resigned from Fannie to take one of five Democratic seats on the 9-11 Commission. Jack Cashill believes that she was “selected” for this position to keep any talk of TWA flight 800 at bay and so that no one tried to reopen up that investigation.

The cover-up remained hush-hush.

One more note of interest: Just to be sure that no one would ever connect the dots, Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton’s National Security Adviser, was sent to steal a few documents from the National Archives before he testified in front of the 9/11 commission. He stuffed his socks and loaded his pants with classified papers, which were later reported to only be “copies” of documents.

Sure.

This was all done in an effort to cover Clinton’s ass.

How many other stories have been spoon-fed to the American people? Who ordered Air Force One to do a photo shoot over NYC? Who ordered a delay to the clean up of the BP oil spill? Who ordered the Justice Department to stop the investigation of the New Black Panthers? Who hired Van Jones and did they know he was a communist? Who signed off on the release of the Lockerbie bomber? …And was there a missile launched off the coast of Los Angeles by a foreign country?….

Are we allowing the government to cover Obama’s ass, too?

How many times have we been taken for fools?

Too many times to count, folks, too many times to count.

The “Educating” Of Our Children

Monday, 30. August 2010 6:31

After studying the ideals of the radical Left, I’m beginning to understand that there is an agenda unfolding inside of our public schools. Gone are the days when we taught our children Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic. Along with other senseless drivel, we now teach our kids that global warming is threatening their very survival and that condoms come in many flavors and colors.

Here’s what I don’t understand: Where are we finding mindless teachers who willingly go along with this current program?

And how can these same mindless teachers give a portion of their salaries to a teachers’ union (NEA) which is actively working AGAINST our kids, AGAINST our country, AGAINST freedom for Americans, and FOR a radical, gay agenda?

Like giving candy to a baby, teachers and professors are selling a Leftist bill of goods to their students.

Our kids are buying it- hook, line, and sinker. Why wouldn’t they? “Mrs. X is a really nice lady with really pretty hair and she tells us that the world is getting warmer and the polar bears are dying- so it must be happening. Mrs. X wouldn’t lie, would she?”

“Mr. Y tells us that sex is OK with boys and girls- or both- as long as you like each other- and that oral sex is really safe because you can’t get pregnant. ”

In many schools, the days are filled with new, innovative ways to get the kids to learn, however, much of what they are learning is a waste of time. For example, the NEA website encourages teachers to create a Poetry Calendar with their students. This activity involves charting poets’ birthdays on a calendar, and then charting and discussing works from the various poets. There’s even a section about designing a Poet t-shirt and another about staging a “Poetry Slam” whereby kids will perform works of poetry in front of an audience.

This time-consuming adventure is now called “education.”

No wonder my child barely knows his multiplication tables; he’s been busy charting the birthdays of poets.

Few students are educated as well as they were 50 years ago. Why? With computers, technology, nicer schools, and all of these new, innovative learning techniques, why are the kids failing? The democrats claim that there isn’t enough money to go around. Throw a few more dollars at the problem and it will correct itself. Like all good-intentioned liberal ideas, this has shown itself to be a bust. The problem isn’t the money, it isn’t the schools.

The problem is much more complicated: It involves the systematic breakdown of our culture and our families. Because of the degradation of society, we no longer teach respect, we no longer hold kids accountable who don’t learn, we no longer teach the basics, we encourage indecency, we encourage kids to question authority, and we allow the “victim” mentality to permeate the schools.

No one can fail. Kids who have been handed $120,000+ of tax-payer money for 12 years of education are graduating without being able to read. Throw all the money you want at something dysfunctional and it will never change unless you get to the root of the problem.

For the past 50 years, communists have dedicated themselves to undermining the culture and the families in America- mainly through education- knowing that if successful, they could gain a stronghold in our country.

They seem to have done a very good job, indeed.

On this same note, the NEA website now promotes the reading of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” by all of its members. This book, as you might know, is dedicated to Lucifer, who Alinsky admired as the “original community organizer.” Alinsky was a known Marxist, a communist. Why would the NEA encourage all members to “become familiar with his theories & materials” ?

What are his theories? Alinsky taught that the “end justifies the means”. He pushed radical tactics of intimidation, confrontation, polarization, and rebellion.

Is this what we want our kids to learn from their teachers?

When our kids finally graduate and go to college, they can take classes that would make you shudder. Occidental College offers a course called, “The Phallus.” It’s cited as studies “between the phallus and the penis, the meaning of the phallus, the lesbian phallus, the Jewish phallus, the Latino phallus….” It’s offered by the department of critical theory and social justice.

Gosh, I hope my kids can get into that one.

Queer Musicology is offered at UCLA. It combines queer theory- “the study of gender, feminism and gayness – with the science of music, to produce a very open-minded course”. The LA Times reported that the course will introduce debates like: “the idea that if you’re gay, then music by gay composers such as Benjamin Britten will sound different to you than it would if you were straight.”

OK then.

There’s also a major called the “Science of Harry Potter” at Frostberg University and another at Indiana University that combines Star Trek with religion.

And we wonder why our kids can’t get a job.

Imagine the money we are spending on this nonsense….

We now know that most of their college history books were written by Howard Zinn, a known communist who skewed historical facts to enhance his view of the world. Theology is often taught by educators who twist biblical teachings to meet their needs. We cannot even count on Catholic colleges to stand up for what’s moral. Notre Dame, for example, brought President Obama in as their commencement speaker and gave him an honorary degree despite his support for infanticide- and despite the cries of millions of Catholics against it.

In a new book by Dr. Tim Elmore, “Generation iY: Our Last Chance to Save Their Future”, the author writes that “I have spoken to employers who told me they will never hire another new graduate. I have heard teachers say they can hardly wait for retirement since they can’t do a thing about kids today. I’ve had parents confide in me that they don’t know what to do with their kids except scream at them.”

The breakdown of the culture, the breakdown of the family…..

Government officials have officially taken over our children. Once they’ve been “educated”, kids no longer think like us, act like us, or want to be like us. They have been warped in a school system designed to warp them.

“Give me 4 years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.” Lenin.

What happens in 12 years, Mr. Lenin? What happens to our kids in 12 years?

The Mosque: To Build Or Not To Build

Monday, 16. August 2010 7:41

While there are many things in life which we have a right to do; there are also many of those things which are not right.

We have a right to go to a ballgame and stand up the entire game, keeping those behind you from seeing the game.

In most communities, we have a right to paint our house neon yellow with purple trim or to let our lawn grow to an unsightly level.

But a little thing called “morality” keeps us from doing those things. We know that our actions affect others, and to live peacefully in this world, we must, at times, think outside of our “rights” and do what is “right.”

The same logic needs to be used when it comes to the building of the mosque, the controversial structure which may go up across the street from the World Trade Center bombing site. Do the Muslims have the constitutional right to build a mosque at this site? Yes, they do. Should they use this constitutional right, dismissing the cries from Americans all over the United States who feel that this is a disrespectful act and a slap across the face of those who lost loved ones on 9/11?

Of course not.

Why? Because it isn’t right. There is absolutely no reason that this mosque can not be built in another spot which is less controversial. “Keeping the peace” often means mediating, finding a solution which will benefit all. If the purpose of the mosque is simply to have a place for Muslims to worship, then they certainly can find another spot which will fulfill their purpose and won’t offend others.

If their purpose, however, is to spit in the face of America, then they will not mediate. They will claim their constitutional right to build this facility across from the bombing site and forge ahead. If past behavior is any indication, I will predict that the Islamic clerics who are pushing for the construction of this mosque will not concede.

Especially now that they have our mighty president on their side.

Obama stood before these Muslims at his Iftar Ramadan party and gave them the green light to build their mosque wherever they darn-well please. He never mentioned that it would be a gesture of goodwill if they would simply move the location of this project down the street a few blocks, nor did he mention that relocating would be a huge step toward convincing skeptics that Islam is truly a religion of peace. He didn’t talk of the harm this mosque could do to Islamic/American relations or the wedge it could put between New Yorkers- those who were the most affected by the destruction of the Twin Towers.

No, Obama stood with the Muslims, once again.

Shocking.

Barack Hussein Obama continues to baffle those who want to believe that he is pro-American. He makes it very difficult for moderate democrats to defend him because his actions continue to fly in the face of what we’ve seen from prior presidents. We have never seen a president who refused to defend our country or the American people from a dangerous, illegal population- or one who sued one of the 50 states for defending themselves. We’ve never seen a president go abroad and denounce our country or bow to foreign leaders. We’ve never seen a president defend the actions of Black Panthers and Gitmo terrorists, yet jump at an opportunity to say the police “acted stupidly.”

It’s unprecedented.

According to Politico, the democrats who are now running in tough congressional races are frustrated by Obama’s stance: “Democrats — at least some who were willing to comment — could barely contain their frustration over Obama’s remarks, saying he had potentially placed every one of their candidates into the middle of the debate by giving GOP candidates a chance to ask them point-blank: Do you agree with Obama on the mosque, or not?”

Few democrats are offering their opinion, yet every politician who is running for office should be asked this question.

Why? Because according to a CNN poll, 2/3 of the American people oppose the mosque- and Americans have a right to know where their elected officials stand.

After taking some heat, Obama is now backing away from his comments. He claims that he wasn’t giving the green light to the Muslims, simply stating that they had a constitutional right to build wherever they’d like. Some in the GOP, including Sarah Palin, aren’t buying this turnaround. In a recent Facebook posting, Sarah asked the President: “Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3,000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade.”

Interestingly enough, the controversial Imam who is pressing for the construction of the mosque is now touring the Middle East on the taxpayers’ dime. Yes, the State Department- aka, Hillary Clinton- has given this man an “all expense paid” trip as an “envoy” to the United States. He will also be given the opportunity to visit a few rich friends who might help him fund the mosque.

And these rich friends may also repay the favor to Clinton or Obama during the 2012 election cycle.

This controversy has done nothing but once again divide our nation. Just as Obama has pitted democrats against republicans, blacks against whites, illegals against legals, and rich against poor, he is now dividing us on a basis of religion. What’s sad is that it doesn’t have to be this way. If those of the Islamic faith will merely come into our country, assimilate into our culture, follow our rules, and use some common courtesy, they would go a long way toward healing the negative feelings of 9/11.

Divide and conquer- that’s the communist way. It’s difficult for communists to defeat a united nation, but relatively easy for them to exercise power over a divided mass. Obama has studied Marxism his whole life- he knows this to be true.

Our president is not a bumbling idiot who doesn’t understand the ramifications of his words. Quite the contrary.

He’s very intelligent.

And very intentional.

When Will The Voters Learn?

Saturday, 14. August 2010 8:14

How many times does a citizen of Minnesota need to hit their head against a wall in order to learn that it’s painful?

Is there something in the water of the 10,000 lakes that lowers the average IQ when it comes to the cause and effect of elections?

Election after election, we scratch our heads, wondering what Minnesotans are thinking….

We are the state who worshiped Paul Wellstone, a socialist democrat, and a man who never saw an entitlement program that he didn’t like. While Wellstone seemed to be a nice guy and a good family man with great intentions, he was a man who had the same warped “dream” that we see in this current Obama administration. William L. Anderson, Ph.D., a economics professor at Frostburg State University describes that “dream” this way:

“That dream – of a peaceful socialist society that provides plenty for all – is just a dream; the reality of socialism, as demonstrated grotesquely by the hundreds of millions of bones that lie beneath the ground in Eastern Europe, Russia, and Asia, is war, starvation, and death. No more proof of statism’s evil is needed, but there are always socialists like Wellstone to tell us that he and others hold the “keys to the kingdom” that will make the system work and provide plenty for everyone, and there always are suckers out there who believe this nonsense.”

Obama, our Messiah, also thinks he holds the “keys to the kingdom”, and he is doing everything he can to unlock the doors of socialism so that we can all partake in its “glory.”

Lucky us.

Minnesota is the state that gave us Jesse Ventura, an ex-wrestler with a gruff sense of humor, and a guy who seemed to say what the average person was thinking. He won with a couple of funny TV ads which featured a “Jesse Ventura action figure” and a seemingly common sense approach to government which included his famous line of, “It’s the people’s money.” He was victorious because the folks in Minnesota were intrigued by Ventura’s candid “schtick” and thought it would be “cool” to elect a celebrity.

It didn’t take long before we were the laughingstock of the country.

Did we learn our lesson? Did we learn that celebrity doesn’t equal good leadership?

Obviously not.

Enter Al Franken, an embarrassment of the worst kind. Al is a two-bit comedian from Saturday Night Live. He penned an article for Playboy called “Porn-O-Rama!” in which he fantasized about visiting a made-up sex institute where he takes part in sexual acts with humans and machines. Let’s just say that it’s graphically pornographic, certainly nothing you would want attached to the resume of a U.S. Senator. He’s also an author of a couple of books, one of which is entitled, “Rush Limbaugh is a Big, Fat Idiot.”

Oh, and did I mention that Al had a little tax issue when he “forgot” to pay taxes for 4 years in 17 states?

None of that seemed to matter to the good folks of Minnesota. Al is now our Senator.

And what a Senator he has become!! He has voted with Harry Reid and against the American people on almost every piece of legislation, including the controversial health care bill. He has repeatedly embarrassed our state with his juvenile behavior- things like denying Senator Lieberman an extra minute to speak on the Senate floor and a recent mocking of Senator Mitch McConnell as he tried to deliver a speech denouncing Elena Kagan.

Franken was forced to apologize for his childish behavior.

A blogger summed up these situations perfectly: Senator Franken is a perfect example of DFL “Minnesota Nice”.

You see, the DFL hierarchy doesn’t seem to care about character, morality, ethics, corruption. They have no shame. Interestingly enough, the strongest DFL voters from Minnesota’s “Iron Range”, tend to have a number of strong, conservative principles, they just don’t vote for them. As avid sportsmen, they love their guns. Many have cabins and hunting property and want the government out of their business when it comes to their lives and their property rights. They are God-loving, church-going folks who would be appalled if they knew what a partial birth abortion actually entailed. They believe in legal immigration and the building of a border fence. They want THEIR taxes to stay low.

The problem seems to be that they have become so dependent on their entitlement programs, including SS, pensions, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment, food stamps, school food programs, etc., that they have no choice but to turn their backs to their own morality and vote for people who will keep giving them what they need to survive.

They’ve also been taught to hate the rich. Class envy runs rampant amongst this group.

Which makes the upcoming governor’s race, one which features the democrat-Millionaire Mark Dayton- against the Republican, Tom Emmer, very interesting. Dayton tries to portray himself as your average guy, never mentioning that he is being funded by a PAC which consists of other millionaire family members and friends. He was a prior U.S. Senator, making a name for himself when he was voted one of the 5 worst Senators by Time Magazine. He’s been through alcohol rehab a number of times and has struggled with mental health issues, yet his “PAC friends” have put out millions of dollars in ads criticizing Tom Emmer for 2 DUI convictions- Both over 20 years old.

Gosh, they never mentioned how many times Mark Dayton, a serial alcoholic, drove drunk but wasn’t caught. Face it, folks- anyone who’s been in rehab a number of times has been behind the wheel intoxicated.

Dayton closed down his Senate office in Washington DC and ran back to MN. immediately after 9/11 because he was “panicky” and “paranoid.”

Oh, and his platform? Raise taxes and spend more.

Leadership exudes from this guy.

Now he wants to be our governor.

Will the same folks who voted Wellstone, Ventura, and Franken into office, once again put on their blinders and vote for a governor who has clearly shown that he is not even capable of being a U.S. Senator?

C’mon folks, are you really THAT crazy?

Cause and effect. You vote for immoral, radical, crazy people because they have name recognition and you get a radical, crazy, immoral country. The head-banging is the source of your headache.

Life is one, big lesson. Time to grow up and learn a few things.

Body Mass Index- A New Tool For Health Care Rationing

Tuesday, 20. July 2010 7:52

We all have important numbers in our lives: There’s the year we were born, our social security number, our telephone number, our address, our weight, our age….

You get the picture.

There’s a new number that you’re going to be hearing about, one which may become the most important number of all. It’s called your BMI- Body Mass Index- and it seems the government is suddenly becoming very interested in this little statistic of yours.

What is your BMI? Well, it’s a number which indicates your level of obesity, using a ratio between your height and your weight. In the past, your family’s “fat content” was a private matter, something you only discussed with those you chose to. Thanks to our new president and his the 2009 stimulus law, by 2014 your “fat number” will be required to be filed electronically when you go to the doctor.

It’ll be listed with your other records for all doctors and “appropriate” government officials to see. It will be an indicator of your health to those who sit on the rationing boards in Washington DC- they can factor your fat information into their decisions as to whether or not you will be getting certain health care.

Hey, Obama promised us that he wasn’t going to ration….

Unfortunately, he just appointed a Medicare czar who has other plans. His new appointee is Donald Berwick, a man that believes in both rationing and distribution of the wealth. In an interview last year, Berwick was quoted as saying, “The decision is not whether or not we will ration care — the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open. And right now, we are doing it blindly.”

What does that mean for the millions of Americans who are on Medicare and rely on this government body to determine whether or not they qualify for certain doctors, certain procedures, certain drugs?

We don’t know for sure, but a 2008 speech Berwich gave to a British audience may hold part of the answer:

“You could have protected the wealthy and the well, instead of recognizing that sick people tend to be poorer and that poor people tend to be sicker and that any health care funding plan that is just, equitable, civilized and humane must, MUST redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is, by definition, redistributional.”

Gosh, this guy sounds radical.

He is. The reason that Barack did not allow Berwick to go through the usual confirmation process and instead hired him as a “recess appointment” (when congress was on vacation) was because he knew that Berwick wouldn’t pass muster with the Senate, especially those Senators who are up for reelection. When seniors, who rely on Medicare, hear that there’s a new sheriff in town who will be rationing their care, they will be up in arms.

Keeping Berwick’s appointment out of the news was essential for the democrats.

How does the BMI factor into all of this?

Many factors go into a system of rationing. The “death panels” will take into consideration your age, for instance, to decide if you “qualify” for a certain procedure. Your BMI will play a similar part in either qualifying or denying you health care. If you’ve taken care of yourself and have kept your weight to a reasonable level, you will be more likely to get the care you need. Plain and simple- Fat people may not be given the same care as thin people.

Unless, of course, they are poor or of a minority race. You see, those folks are considered “victims” and need affirmative action.

Rich, white folks should know better.

Listen to Berwick’s own words and you will see that this is true: “Here is a question I often ask my students,” added Berwick. “When you meet a new patient, what is the one test that you could do that would tell you how long that patient is likely to live?

“Typically, students answer: ‘Ask them if they smoke,’ or ‘Test their blood sugar.’

“No,” Berwick said. “Just look at the color of their skin.”

Berwick’s theory goes down the tubes when you look closer at the statistics. There is a high death rate among young minorities who kill themselves -and each other- with drugs and violence- which brings the life expectancy numbers of the whole black population down. The New England Journal of Medicine reports that among older black and white men, the level of education has a greater effect than race on total life expectancy. Older black and white women had virtually the same life expectancy, even without factoring for education. Over the age of 80, blacks actually have a higher life expectancy than whites.

Hey, will Berwick ration more health care to whites than blacks over the age of 80? Doesn’t he promote “fairness”?

A recent study from Mayo concluded, “BMI fails as a cardiovascular risk factor“. It also found that “BMI cannot discriminate between body fat and lean mass”.

While the CDC (Center for Disease Control) claims that BMI is a reliable indicator of body fatness, studies obviously show otherwise. People who are “fit” and have a high level of muscle mass will weigh more, giving them a higher BMI, yet actually be healthier than those who have a lower BMI but are couch potatoes. How can the government use BMI as a reliable factor in health care if it cannot tell the difference between fat and muscle?

And do you want radical men like Donald Berwick relying on this unreliable number to determine your course of health care? Do you want Donald Berwick looking at the color of your skin before determining your course of care? Do you want the government, not your doctor, deciding how fat you are, how much weight you should lose, how much you need to exercise, or what you should eat?

Think this isn’t happening? Think again. I went to the doctor for a routine check 2 months ago. For the first time in my life, my doctor told me what my BMI was- I didn’t ask, she just blurted it out.

Scary.

Our weight is no longer a private matter. Our fat is no longer a private matter. Our health, or that of our kids, is no longer a private matter.

Big government….had enough yet?

The Dems Playbook: How To Steal An Election

Monday, 19. July 2010 7:32

“It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.” – Joseph Stalin

So that’s how the democrats plan on winning in 2012…..

Thanks to a recent investigation by the Minnesota Majority, some light has been cast on voter fraud in Minnesota. This organization reviewed the 2008 election records from a few MN. counties and discovered that criminal felons had voted in numbers large enough to skew the Senate race between Coleman and Franken.

So much for good, wholesome, Midwest elections.

Our President is working hard to ensure that convicted felons in ALL 50 states will have this same opportunity to vote. You see, there are about 5.3 million untapped votes out there- the only problem is that they happen to belong to folks who are murders, armed robbers, rapists and other convicts. This is proving to be a huge, potential resource of votes for the democrat party, one they’d like to get their dirty little hands on.

In any way possible.

The key to getting these votes is to first change state laws that prevent felon voting at the state level. This is most easily done by using the argument that these criminals are “disenfranchised voters.”

In the world of liberals, everyone is a victim, even rapists.

“They are people, too.”

This tactic worked in Florida during the 2008 election. With over a million ex-felons (between 250,000 and 500,000 voted) and a new law signed by Charlie Crist allowing them to vote, Florida turned from “Red” to “Blue”, giving Obama a victory by 200,000 votes. Of course, we can’t be sure that the “criminal” vote was the reason for this change, but it certainly didn’t hurt the democrats’ cause.

It also didn’t hurt that Obama ran a registration drive for the criminals in Florida called “YOU CAN VOTE, TOO!!”

He’s pandering to murderers?….

Shockingly, Obama didn’t launch a similar campaign for the military vote…

Iowa restored voting to felons in 2005 and in the past presidential election, the state swung over to the democrat side. The same scenario happened in Colorado, a state which decided in 2007 to allow ex-felons to vote as long as they had completed their parole. True to form, in 2008, Colorado also became a Blue State- the first time in 26 years. Virginia is now legalizing felons and in 2008 became another swing state that went to Obama.

Huh.

Reinstating the right for criminals to vote state-by-state is a tedious process. The democrats are trying their best to get this done on a national level in one, clean sweep through the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Judge Sonia Sotomayor may help his cause. When Sonia was a Circuit court judge, a case came before her court- Hayden vs Pataki, in which a murderer named Joseph “Jazz” Hayden (he stabbed a sanitation worker to death) became an advocate for letting felons vote. Judge Sotomayor dissented from the majority opinion because she believed that the Voting Rights Act applies to all groups who have been discriminated against, including felons.

We now know how she’ll rule on any case involving the voting rights of illegals, felons, or even dead people.

But there’s more. We heard from Mr. J. Christian Adams, the lawyer who recently quit the Justice Dept. because of the way the Black Panther case was handled. According to the WSJ, “Mr. Adams leveled an even more explosive charge beyond the Panther case. He testified that last year Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes made a jaw-dropping announcement to attorneys in Justice’s Voting Rights section. She said she would not support any enforcement of a key section of the federal “Motor Voter” law — Section 8, which requires states to periodically purge their voter rolls of dead people, felons, illegal voters and those who have moved out of state.

According to Mr. Adams, Justice lawyers were told by Ms. Fernandes: “We’re not interested in those kind of cases. What do they have to do with helping increase minority access and turnout? We want to increase access to the ballot, not limit it.”

So our Justice Department is NOT INTERESTED in purging dead voters, illegals, or felons from elections? Are you kidding me?

Isn’t that the law?

Suddenly, the democrats election landscape of 2012 is becoming very clear, isn’t it? We’re well on our way to allowing millions of convicts to vote, a tactic proven effective in swing states. Add to that the push for amnesty, and the democrats will acquire another voting block of millions. ACORN, while technically disbanded, is reorganizing under various names in every state, making more difficult to trace the corruption because each will appear to be an individual entity. Watch as they are once again able to gain government funding and return to their old tactics.

Oh, and in recent FBI reports, former ACORN employees have now admitted that ACORN Headquarters was indeed working for the democrat party. Yes, folks, our tax dollars were going to an organization that was a champion for the dems.

Surprised?

And then there’s the dead people. If our federal government has indeed issued ORDERS that we will not enforce policies that purge these people from our voting lists, there will be no integrity in our elections. In states like Minnesota, with NO photo ID requirement, anyone can enter a polling place and pretend to be someone who has passed away.

When Barack Obama callously pushes agenda after agenda through our government, most of us shake our heads and wonder how in the world he expects to get elected in 2012 if he continues this behavior.

Now we know. The illegals voting in places like Texas, Utah, and Arizona will have an impact there. The convicts in Minnesota, Florida, Iowa, and others will have an impact there. The dead folks in many states will skew those elections. Add to that the liberal Secretaries of State- along with a Justice Department who turns a blind eye to all of this, including voter intimidation by the Black Panthers- and the dems will have themselves another victory in 2012.

Four more years to push their agenda.

Four more years to “change” our country.

Four more years we cannot afford.

Convicted Felons May Have Determined Senate Race In Minnesota

Tuesday, 13. July 2010 7:05

Well, well, well- it’s now official. A recent study now shows that there was, indeed, voter fraud in Minnesota during the 2008 elections.

Blow me over with a feather.

The Minnesota Majority, a conservative “watchdog” group, conducted the investigation which concludes that convicted felons were allowed to vote during this past election. The study proves that at least 341 convicted felons in Minneapolis and St. Paul (both heavily democratic) voted illegally in a Senate race which was determined by a mere 312 votes, giving Al Franken a slim victory over Norm Coleman.

Hey, not to worry. Felons always vote Republican, right? I’m sure a bunch of criminals didn’t determine the race…

Interestingly enough, on the same day that Fox News exposed this study, I received an email from my state Senator in Minnesota, democrat Sandy Rummel, on the same subject. I had written to Sandy about the need for Photo ID for voting and this is how she responded:

Thank you for your email. There is no evidence of voter fraud in Minnesota. This issue just came up not too long ago for debate in the newspapers, and again, even conservative members of the courts cannot find any evidence that we have a problem here. This past legislative session there were a number of changes made to election laws in Minnesota. The bipartisan committee that worked on the bill found no need to mandate photo ID. These folks worked all last summer reviewing the evidence. The most noticeable changes made were in the way election judges handle ballots, including absentee ballots.

Sincerely,
Sandy Rummel

Huh. It looks like someone needs to get informed.

It also looks like those in the government who had “reviewed the evidence” need to find a new job. They seem to be incompetent.

OK, so how could a simple watchdog group find this fraud when a boat-load of lawyers, all of whom were paid handsomely to conduct the official recount, didn’t find it themselves?

Well, FOX News reports that Dan McGrath, the executive director of Minnesota Majority, was interviewed and asked the same question. According to Dan: “His group was largely ignored when it turned over a list of hundreds of names to prosecutors in two of the state’s largest counties, Ramsey and Hennepin, where fraud seemed to be the greatest.

A spokesman for both county attorneys’ offices belittled the information, saying it was “just plain wrong” and full of errors, which prompted the group to go back and start an in-depth look at the records.”

They compared the voting lists with the conviction lists and then “went back to the records and found the roster lists, where voters sign in before walking to the voting booth.” They matched each name by hand.

“The only way we can be wrong is if someone with the same first, middle and last names, same year of birth as the felon, and living in the same community, has voted. And that isn’t very likely.”

Suddenly, Ramsey County is taking notice.

Such a coincidence, isn’t it? You see, when you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar of corruption, you do everything you can to pretend it’s not in there.

Paul Carruthers of the Ramsey County’s Attorney’s office is taking this matter very seriously. He admits that the Minnesota Majority did a very thorough job and he is in the process of following up on these charges. ” Carruthers said Ramsey County is still investigating all the names and has asked that 15 investigators be hired to complete the process. “So far we have charged 28 people with felonies, have 17 more under review and have 182 cases still open,” he said. “And there is a good chance we may match or even exceed their numbers.” ”

Which means, of course, that there is an even better chance that the wrong man is sitting in Washington and voting away our rights today.

Norm Coleman should demand an explanation from all of the lawyers he paid to help him with the recount. Mark Ritchie, the Minnesota Secretary of State, should have egg all over his face for running such a fraud-laden election- but instead will be praised by George Soros (who financed his election) and all the democrats in Washington for delivering them an important vote in the Senate. Minnesota should be embarrassed that they are a laughingstock of the country when a simple Photo ID would have protected our state from this mess.

And Al Franken should be thanking his lucky stars that this fraud remained covered up for so long. His lone vote has not only helped to determine the Health Care for our country, but could soon undermine our financial system, change our immigration laws, and change our energy policies for years to come.

And to think that much of this could have been avoided if Mark Ritchie had just done his job.

The rest of us in Minnesota should make a vow. Never again.

Mark Ritchie and his right hand man, George Soros, cannot be given the keys to our elections any longer. They can’t be trusted.

November 2. Vote Ritchie out.

Are we Minnesota- or Chicago? Your choice.

Hollywood- Where Communist Thought Runs Amok.

Monday, 12. July 2010 7:46

The term “Hollywood liberal” is redundant.

A conservative in Hollywood? It’s not only unacceptable, it’s a direct road to the unemployment line. Most of these rarities stay “in the closet” for fear of being cast as heathens- people who hate the environment, love the war, have moral values, and worship at the foot of George Bush- all unacceptable behaviors to those who do the hiring on the Golden Coast.

Funny, but about 60 years ago, it was the communists who were banned from Hollywood. Strange…

There are actors like Leonardo Di Caprio, a guy is considered a “Hollywood expert” on “Global warming” and going “green”- despite the fact that this “genius” has never attended a day of college. In his own words, Leonardo doesn’t need college because, “Shooting movies is like going to college”.

I guess filming “The Titanic” has made him an expert on carbon emissions.

Who knew?

Cameron Diaz was spotted walking through the streets of Peru carrying a Maoist handbag, embellished with a red hammer and sickle and the words, “Serve the People” on it. Peruvians were offended, forcing Cameron to apologize.

It looks like she’ll have to save that handbag for exclusive wear in the United States, where freedom of speech still exists and uneducated citizens are unaware of the evil of Mao. Hey, you can’t blame Cameron for loving a guy who’s responsible for killing 70 million people.

If Mao made a documentary about his killing spree today, he would have earned himself an Oscar and been the toast of Hollywood parties everywhere.

Speaking of documentaries, Michael Moore has made a career of selling these films to Americans- films which glorify communism. He gave us a false depiction of the Cuban health care system in “Sicko” and recently tried to demean capitalism, the free market system through which he has lived in freedom, gotten fat, and made his fortune.

We see the moral clarity of liberals when we hear the women of The View talk about Roman Polanski, the Polish director who raped a 13 year old girl and then fled the country. When he was finally arrested in Switzerland on these charges, Whoopi Goldberg chastised our legal system, saying that what Polanski did to a 13 YEAR OLD “wasn’t ‘RAPE’ rape.” The ladies on the panel concluded that Polanski was a “brilliant director” who should be released because he seems like a nice guy.

Oh, and it happened a long time ago. Let the poor man go on to live his life.

So much for standing up for women. And children.

Rosie O’Donnell is cut from the same communist cloth as these other ladies. A few years ago, she gave us a lecture on the 2nd amendment, claiming that the amendment is outdated and was never meant to allow citizens to carry handguns. A couple of weeks later, we found out that her own bodyguard had applied for a permit to carry a gun while accompanying her son to school each morning.

She said that was “different.” Her children needed protection. Ours don’t.

Oh, and she’s also a “Truther”, a woman certain that Bush took down the twin towers. This Hollywood genius recently talked about the BP oil spill and the danger it was doing to our environment, calling on Obama to nationalize BP to solve the crisis:

“I say seize their assets. Right now. Seize their assets today. Take over the [company]. I don’t care [how]. Issue an executive order…Call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Let’s watch Rush Limbaugh explode on TV…Seize the assets. Take over BP.”

Don’t let something like the silly, old constitution get in the way of your personal opinion, Rosie.

Oliver Stone is directing a new movie about his hero, Hugo Chavez. Stone tells us that Chavez is a misunderstood man who he “deeply admires”- a great guy who lives a modest lifestyle, giving back oil profits to his people and fighting corruption at every turn.

Meanwhile, in the real world, we find out that Chavez is hoarding food in his country, sending “the food police” into the private sector to confiscate rice, coffee, and powdered milk. They’ve now discovered “mountains” of rotting food in a government warehouse, causing food prices to escalate and folks to die of hunger in his country. Chavez has recently decided to nationalize 11 U.S. Oil Rigs. Since 2007, he has nationalized companies in industries from oil to utilities, to telecoms, cement, steel and banking.

We are expected to ignore the facts and believe that Chavez has no plans of becoming a communist dictator.

“He’s a nice guy.”

Sadly, even Tom Hanks, the guy we all love, is a huge, liberal force in Hollywood. He’s publicly criticized the Mormon Church because of their stance on gay marriage, he’s ripped the Bush administration, and he’s donated big money to Al Franken and other far-left candidates.

Al Franken.

And then we have Sean Penn, a Hollywood “star” in a class of his own…..

To understand Sean, you must first know that his roots aren’t really liberal- they’re communist. His father, Leo Penn, was a member of the American Communist Party and was proven — by Soviet records — “to be an agent of direct sedition and treason against the United States on behalf of Stalin. ”

You see, Sean Penn’s father was also an actor, one who was blacklisted from Hollywood when he was found to be a communist agent. It might be said that Penn is seeking justice for what he considers to be a grave injustice against his father:

‘It just makes you angry, the idea that a guy that goes off, fights for his country, wins all kinds of medals by risking his life, and then four years later, the country says, “You can’t work here,”‘ he says. ‘And I am a total believer in: it can happen again. There’s signs of it all the time. The one thing you can count on in Hollywood – across the board – is cowardice.”

The communist apple doesn’t fall far from the communist tree.

Penn claims to know President Chavez well. He calls Chavez a “warm and friendly man with a robust sense of humor.”

Hey Sean, move to Venzuela. PLEASE. With all the money you’ve made under our capitalist system, you could have the nicest mud hut in Caracas.

Oh, and take Rosie, Leonardo, Keith Olbermann, Whoopi, Michael Moore, Cameron Diaz and her communist purse with you.

One more thing: You might want to invite Obama to join your little group. “Brilliant”, communist minds think alike…

You two have a lot in common.
