Glenn Beck, Healthcare, and The ME Generation

Posted by necessarygrace on October 28, 2009

He ties it all together pretty well, I think…

Do you agree? Have we become a society of spoiled brats? If so, how do we turn things around now? And do we actually have the will to do so?

Global Warming, the Sun, and God

Posted by Nancy on October 27, 2009

Okay, God won’t really enter into this post, but I’ll give Him credit for slowing down the insanity coming from the warming enthusiasts.   It’s now ten years and counting of steady or falling temperatures worldwide.

Oh wait, that’s where the sun comes in.   Not fully understood, there is a correlation between the sun’s energy and the earth’s temperature.  It shines on us and we get warm; it has sun spots and gets more active and puts out more energy and we get warmer.  And that current lengthy period of no sun spots? – it gets lengthier every day.  And trends cooler.

Maybe that’s why it’s no longer called global warming, but “climate change.”  You can’t go wrong with that one, because the weather is always changing.  And if you claim that any changes in weather mean man is evil and destroying the earth, you can’t go wrong, can you?

Meanwhile, the global warming summit in Copenhagen is only weeks away and the U.S. Congress seems to have come to some semblance of sanity by not passing cap and trade or any sweeping legislation to save the planet leading up to it.  Dare I hope this continues?

Poor U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who made a climate treaty his top priority, has had to scale back expectations for a comprehensive climate treaty to steal money from developed countries save the earth when they all Kum-By-Ya in Copenhagen.  At least he’s encouraged by the “strong commitment of the Obama administration,” bless their hearts.  And he’s in the U.S. right now, encouraging our political leaders to get on board.

While the adults head feint and pretend man can control the weather, what is all this doing to the children?  Isn’t that supposed to be our primary concern, the children?  Everything the government does is for “the children,” right?

In this case, what they are doing borders on child abuse.

Someone recently left a comment on the all-time most viewed post on this blog, and it sure looks like it came from a child to me.

I wish people would just listen. I’m so mad that people don’t even care about the polar bears and that the sea level is rising. And also that the plants are dead because of us. If we don’t do something about it then we all are going to die with them. I just wish there was a way to stop the global warming.

Last week global warmers in New Zealand suggested we get edible pets, and this week Climate chief Lord Stern from London tells us we have to give up eating meat.  And the brainwashed children think we are all going to die.

Call your congressman and your senator.  Tell them to fight against this insanity and stop frightening our children, and for God’s sake don’t vote for a destructive cap and trade bill. 

After all, it is God who controls the weather, not man.

Here’s What You Can Do

Posted by Nancy on October 23, 2009

From Claude Sandroff for the great American Thinker:

Rep. Michele Bachmann from Minnesota offered sound advice this morning during an interview with Lee Rodgers on KSFO (audio here and MP3 here) in San Francisco, on how to turn back the various healthcare proposals working their way through Congress.

The key she says is call volume — old-fashioned telephone call volume.  Every morning, Monday through Friday she advises us to call our Congressional delegation, our two Senators and Congressional Representative, with the goal of achieving 10,000 calls every day.  With staff tied up just answering this volume of calls, there is no way that healthcare can survive.  And if it stalls in 2009, then the upcoming elections of 2010 guarantee its death and our freedom

To those desperate for a specific call to action, this is it.  This is your answer to “what can I do.”

Rep. Bachmann, a tax litigator by profession, explained in a way I never heard before why this defeat is necessary.

She cites a University of Arizona economics professor who estimates that fully 30% of private US corporate profits are now owned by the government, thanks to the Obama takeover of AIG, GM, Citigroup, etc. Before Obama’s election 100% of corporate profits were private.  If healthcare is taken over by the government add 14% to that figure.  If cap and trade then passes add another 8%. 

Sum those figures and suddenly 52% of profits in our country are government-owned.  We will have become a socialist country, not in temperament, or leaning but in fact.

Rep. Bachman is the top target for defeat of Speaker Pelosi, and needs national support from the conservative base. (http://www.michelebachmann.com/)  Rep. Bachmann and people like her are the future of the Republican Party, if it has one.

As Long As They Keep Writing The Bills, I’ll Keep Writing The Letters

Posted by necessarygrace on October 19, 2009

Dear Senator,

I can’t believe I’m sending yet another fax about healthcare bills. But here we are again – Congress trying to push through a healthcare bill that no one has read, and citizens like me speaking up to say simply, “STOP”!!

This time, it’s the Baucus plan.

Senator, you and I both know this is not real legislation. It’s a hypothetical framework with hundreds of hidden tax hikes thrown in, in a desperate attempt to convince Americans that this government takeover of health care won’t cost Americans trillions of dollars.

We are not convinced.

The truth is, the Baucus plan, like every other plan the President and Democrats in Congress have produced thus far, does NOTHING to fix the very real problems that exist in our current healthcare system. Instead, these plans would stifle economic growth, raise taxes, cost every American thousands of dollars more and then do LESS in regards to providing good health care for Americans.

Senator, I am asking you today, again, to please, PLEASE vote NO on the Baucus plan. We don’t need this bill, we don’t want this bill. And NO ONE EVEN KNOWS WHAT IS IN THIS BILL. Virginians elected you to represent US – we elected you to protect our RIGHTS. This bill would do neither. Voting NO will show us that you truly are listening to your constituents, and that you vote on principle, rather than party lines.

The voters are watching.

Have you contacted your Senators and Representatives lately? Americans did an awesome job of making themselves heard in August and early September, but it wasn’t enough – Congress thinks it can wear us down, and ram whatever legislation they want though. We need to keep making our voices heard! We can not get tired, we can not give up. Call your Senators TODAY. Or, if you’d rather, send a fax. If you’re too busy to write your own, plagerize mine, I don’t care. Just don’t sit idly by while Obama and his lapdogs in Congress take over our lives. Freedom – It’s worth fighting for.

We should stop comparing Obama to Hitler. At least Hitler brought the Olympics to Berlin.

Didn’t Obama Say We Could Judge Him By the Company He Keeps?

Posted by E. on October 15, 2009

Not many people are looking that closely at the people with whom he is surrounding himself whilst in the White House, but some are.  One or two, anyway.

So one of the people the president has picked to have around him (and no, I’m not going to beat the dead horse that is Van Jones) is Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director.  She’s a lovely woman, I’m sure.  I mean, I don’t know her personally.  Really, I know very, very little about her.  But I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt and saying she is a lovely woman.  You know, despite the fact that she flicks her tongue like a lizard when she talks and one of her favorite political philosophers is Chairman Mao.

Oh,  yes, who can’t admire a man who is responsible for the deaths of countless people just to achieve his own political goals?  I mean, after all, he only did it as a result of making his own choices, so he could mark his own path and fight his own war.  Mr. President, we are judging you by the company you keep.

Thanks for telling the truth. This isn’t about health care; it’s all about power and control.
