Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Political Transparency


A lot of folks have been getting tired of politicians with "hidden" agendas or activities.

It seems that the Linn County Democratic Party made a good faith effort to combat this issue recently.

I would say they were totally upfront about their relationship with the average family that works hard and pays taxes

When they used a Stretch Limousine to pull their float in a local parade. 


BEHOLD



 

The Linn County Iowa Democratic Party Limousine Liberals.

A Personal Message from Michelle Malkin

Three weeks the number one book on the New York Times Best Seller List and they don't seem to be interested in reviewing it?

 

Sounds like my kind of Book

A Personal Message from Michelle Malkin

Dear Reader,

I'm so proud to announce that my new book, Culture of Corruption, is #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for the second consecutive week!

If you haven't read it yet, let me give you just a little taste:

Phew. Janitors in newsrooms across America worked overtime in the halcyon days after Barack Obama won the presidency. It wasn't easy cleaning the drool off laptops and floors in the offices of journalists everywhere. New York Times columnist David Brooks praised Team Obama's "postpartisan rhetoric" and "practical creativity." Awestruck Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts echoed the conventional wisdom: "Some would say it's a team of rivals, à la President Lincoln, or is a better comparison a team of geniuses as FDR did?"

I wrote this book to give you the exhaustive answer that President Obama's gyrating media harem doesn't want you to read.

Obama's team is a dysfunctional and dangerous group of business-as-usual cronies. The corruption stretches from wealthy power brokers Rahm Emanuel and Valerie Jarrett, to pay-to-play-tainted Michelle Obama and Joe Biden, to ethically challenged, bailout-bungling money men Larry Summers and Tim Geithner at Treasury, crime-coddling corporate lawyer Eric Holder at DOJ, to the crooked Service Employees International Union, and the ever-expanding swamp of Washington lobbyists.

This book pulls together the familiar and not-so-familiar pieces to force Obama hagiographers to confront an alternate narrative. A reality-based narrative. A narrative of incompetence, nepotism, influence-peddling, and self-dealing that defies the stubborn myth that Barack Obama is the One True Agent of Hope and Change.

In short: This is a government of the crony, by the lobbyist, and for all the well-heeled, well-connected people Barack Obama spent his entire campaign demonizing.

In the era of "new politics," judge him as you would judge other mere mortals. Judge him not by the company that preceded him. Judge him by the company he keeps.

Thanks for your time. If you've already bought Culture of Corruption—thank you! If not, use one of the links below to buy it online today.

Sincerely,

Michelle Malkin

Loebsack Tastes Shoe Leather
Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks asks Rep. Dave Loebsack (IA-D2) a question at a townhall in Burlington, Iowa on 15 August 2009.

Dr. Miller-Meeks asks Loebsack about an issue summarized here:

Obama Unfairly Targets Insurance as Enemy of Reform
By
Mort Kondracke

For one supposedly dedicated to bringing parties together for health care reform, President Barack Obama shows unremitting hostility toward one of them: the health insurance industry.

In practically every speech he gives or town hall he hosts, there's a slam at insurance profits and methods - and no recognition of the role its lobby, America's Health Insurance Plans, has taken to advance reform.





Call Dave Loebsack today and ask him to answer Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks' question: +1 (202) 225-6576

Let's Make History
Lee County Republicans held their annual feed/fund raiser Saturday, July 18, 2009, in Ft. Madison.
 Office holders and seekers were there; lots of them.
Mariannette Miller-Meeks addressed the nearly 100 assembled on growing the party. The good doctor from Ottumwa was the only speaker to receive a standing ovation.

 



Why It Matters

Change We Could Die For
I attended the local Townhall Meeting this morning. 
 Some observations are
Unlike the defamations we have been hearing about Citizens exercising their First Amendment Rights to Assemble and Redress the Government of the Grievances.

Why are these meetings brimming with so much anger? Because Republican Astroturfers have joined the same old right-wing broadcast demagogues that have been spewing hate and fear for years, to create a tempest.

I saw only handmade signs by the Anti-Administration Health Care Plan, and while I did see ONE handmade Pro Plan sign the rest were Mass Produced,

 So who are the Astroturfers?

 During the meeting there was a heated conversation between a couple sitting beside me and a woman on the row below us, When the man exclaimed " YOU want People to die in the streets"  I jumped in with the statement that NO ONE in America is denied essential medical care due to lack of insurance or ability to pay,  He backed down because he knew that was true. 

 

While there I heard my Congressman making light of the idea that Death Panels would be enacted, and claiming that what had folks upset was  merely a provision to have health professionals help patients with End of Life Decisions.

 My Friends Death Panels are ALREADY in action in this Country and they actually are helping patients with End of Life Decisions.,

Patients who are DENIED treatment are helped to enter Assisted Suicide Programs

In Oregon,  One of the States whose program is pointed to as a Model for the proposed National Plan

Via the Big Lizards Blog we have

State Health Care Plan: Traveling Eternity Road - on a One-Way Ticket

The Oregon Health Plan, more or less a real-world model of ObamaCare, is under tremendous pressure to cut costs. They have found a unique way of doing so: They no longer pay for life-saving chemotherapy for cancer patients with less than a 5% chance of survival for five years... but they will pay to help kill them:

Barbara Wagner has one wish - for more time.

"I'm not ready, I'm not ready to die," the Springfield woman said. "I've got things I'd still like to do."

Her doctor offered hope in the new chemotherapy drug Tarceva, but the Oregon Health Plan sent her a letter telling her the cancer treatment was not approved.

Instead, the letter said, the plan would pay for comfort care, including "physician aid in dying," better known as assisted suicide.

"I told them, I said, 'Who do you guys think you are?' You know, to say that you'll pay for my dying, but you won't pay to help me possibly live longer?' " Wagner said. [Hat tip to Sachi]

So... under government medicine, Barack H. Obama's grandmother shouldn't get a hip replacement, because she's going to die soon anyway; Sarah Palin's son Trig, who has Down Syndrome, wouldn't get long-term treatment because Down is incurable; and Barbara Wagner begs for cancer treatment -- and instead gets a not-so-subtle hint that she should contact a physician about how to "reduce the surplus population" by committing suicide.

There is really no nice way to spin this.

Yes there will be NO Death Panels who will deny an individual patient treatment, just Criteria which will do the same thing.

BUT they will offer them a Painless Easy Death.

I wonder will they also have showers for Undesirables?

Yes such a wonderful program we Taxpayers will get to fund

What Cost?
Interested in how much the Administration's new brain storm is going to cost your State and YOU?


 


More at He Thinks You're Stupid  From Powerline
and
The Confederate Yankee chimes in with  Empty and Green
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, urged on by President Barack Obama, announced progress on Tuesday toward quick passage of legislation to fight global warming by reducing industrial emissions of carbon dioxide.

At a midday White House press conference, Obama said the "historic" climate change bill moving through the House would "transform the way we produce and use energy in America."

With incentives to encourage utilities, manufacturers and other companies to switch from higher-polluting oil and coal to cleaner energy alternatives, Obama said the legislation would spark a "transformation that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and confront the carbon pollution that threatens our planet."

I bet we have to do it NOW.  Like we will get to see the text one night and it will need to be passed before the following evening, otherwise the public might wake up and realise how much they are being lied to, AGAIN.

If It Feels Good They Will Want To Do It Again
Topic: Out of Flyover Land

 I have this posted on the website I use for Local Political Issues

Hot Issues From Linn County Iowa

But the principles of a Bedrock Foundationn for Grassroots Political Activity can be applied I think in a healthy manner to any location or Party for that matter.

 
There has been some talk about a Precinct Initiative.

An enterprise I full heartedly endorse. There will be many plans and information forthcoming,'

Here are some of my ideas and what I hope will be useful tools.

Those who have been following my posts, may recall sometime back I posted a table with links to maps of the County Precincts.

Later I used the same format to post the Form As for all the Precinct Caucuses from last year.

Here I present that same format to be built into a table of Facebook Groups where residents of Precincts may communicate and inform each other.

I have started such a group for

Linn County Iowa Precinct 38 GOP

I ecourage you to form such a group for your precinct, send me the link and I will post it in the table. 

So once we have such a group how do we find real live people to join?

I have some suggestions.  A journey of ten thousand miles starts with a single step.

Do you know anyone in your precinct who is a Republican, or Conservative?

How about inviting them over for a backyard cookout?

I ask you, which would you be most likely to repsond positively to:

We are trying to organise Party Members in the Precinct in order to be more effective in Volunteer, Election and Fund Raising initiatives

 OR 

We are inviting a few families who have the same values and desires as we do by for a backyard cookout and we would like your family to join in?

I think FIRST we get to know each other.

That is a sound foundation for a politically healthy Precinct.

There will be other ideas  and I am certainly not trying to tell anyone NOT to do anything,

But how about trying this?  I think it will work. Why?

Because it would be FUN.

You spend a nice afternoon, with some good food and fellowship with folks that think like you, and you will ENJOY yourselves.

It will make you FEEL GOOD

If there is anything I have picked up over the years it is this:

You give someone something that makes them Feel Good?

They are going to want to do it again.
