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.

First We Must Get Their Attention
Topic: Out of Flyover Land
There is an old tale about a farmer who bought a new plow mule and was informed by it's former owner that, "He will do everything you want from a plow mule, just ask him nicely."  
Much to the chagrin of the new owner, the mule laid his ears back, dug his hooves in the dirt and didn't budge.

So he called the former owner who came over looked at the mule, picked up a 2 X 4 leaning up against the barn and WHACK laid the mule out.

"I thought you said all I needed to do was ask nicely", the new owner said.

"Well" the former owner replied, "FIRST you gotta get his attention."


I would say events around the country, Tea Party Rallies, Town Hall Meetings and most recently the  Election in Massachusetts,  MAY indicate that the American Public is giving up on,  "Asking Nicely"

The question is, whether anyone is paying attention.

Now it is quite true that the Election of Senator Brown WAS about the Proposed Health Care Plan.

That, however is not the entire picture.

Let's be honest, the public does think Health Care is important.

The American Public does want some changes and improvement.

The American Public also wants something done about dependence on Foreign Energy supplies.

What it doesn't want is the Progressive Plan on Health Care with an accompanying take over by the Federal Government of 1/6th of the US Economy.

NOR does it like the Raping of the US Economy that is a called Cap and Trade with the attending Redistribution of Wealth around the World which is in my opinion the real goal of the Global Warming Agenda.

But MORE IMPORTANT.

The American Public is LIVID at the Progressive's Obsession with the above to the Exclusion of attention on what it feels are the MOST Important Issues of Today.

Those being, the Economy, Jobs and National Security in the Face of International Islamic Jihad,

And while they were voting on Health Care, Cap and Trade they were also saying

YOU ARE NOT HEARING US

We want you to start focusing on what WE think is important
PAY ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Which means to me that anyone who campaigns on other issues to the exclusion of the Core Values that the Public desires?

Is in for  a BIG surprise.

As Republicans and Conservatives we stand att the cusp of a Generational Opportunity, possibly surpassing the one we found in 1994.

Should we let this slip through our fingers it may be more than one generation before we have another one and if we fail generations of Progressive Politicians will be indebted to us.

Our Tent has many rooms, Social Conservatives, Fiscal Conservatives, Constitutional Conservatives etc.

All of our Core Values have importance and if fact, we do well with the General Population.


Right to Life values are increasing among the public, Defense of Marriage Values are as well, 30 some States have taken stands on the latter and there has been a shift in the attitude of the Public on the topic of Abortion in our Favor.

In the last Generation, more and more States have affirmed support of the 2cnd Amendment with Shall Carry Legislation.

So many of our Core Values ARE held by most of the General Public,

BUT if we do not come to the Electorate on the Issues that they deem to be most important NOW?

We may be picking ourselves up off the plow field along with the Progressives.

What the Tea Party espouses ARE Conservative Core Values,

We need not do anything but be true to our Basic Principles and Campaign on them.

Who Wants A Good Loser
Who wants a good loser?

  I mean the type who yawns and assumes the attitude of "It doesn't matter, I could have won if I wanted to but it was not worth the trouble"

I prefer the ones who rend their hair and clothes beat upon their chests
and wail how unfair the universe is.

Tuesday, January 19, 2010 we saw History in the Making

There was the Fall of the Bastille on the 14th July 1789


The Storming of the Winter Palace on the 25th October 1917


 

 

We had the Collapse of the heretofore considered impregnable Fortress of the Democratic Party, in Massachusetts.


In Honor of which I did something I have never done until tonight.


I watched MSNBC

Conan the Barbarian answered the question, "What is Best in Life" with

To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!


 

But today I think it is:

 To see the Kennedy Machine Crushed to See them Driven before Republicans, to hear the lamentations of Olberman, Matthews and Maddow.


Yes THAT is what is BEST in Life!

Just Make It Cost More
Topic: Out of Flyover Land

I just ran into one of the most Byzantine, Convoluted and Backwards ways of lowering costs on something that I have ever encountered.

Cross Posted at Hot Issues from Linn County Iowa

Obama to Meet Union Leaders Over Their Opposition to Cadillac Tax

 

Union officials told The Associated Press that they view the meeting Monday as a chance to forcefully make their case that the tax is bad policy and bad politics. Unions contend that the tax would be passed along to workers.

 

House Democrats prefer to raise income taxes on individuals making more than $500,000 and couples over $1 million and are reluctant to abandon that approach, saying the insurance tax would violate the president's campaign pledge not to tax the middle class. But they realize they likely will have to bend on that and other issues so that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., can maintain his fragile 60-vote majority support for the bill.

The Senate wants to tax insurance companies on plans valued at over $8,500 for individuals and $23,000 for couples. Most analysts say the insurance tax would be passed on to consumers.

But Obama has defended the tax as a way to drive down health costs.

 "I'm on record as saying that taxing Cadillac plans that don't make people healthier but just take more money out of their pockets because they're paying more for insurance than they need to, that's actually a good idea, and that helps bend the cost curve,"

Obama said in an interview with National Public Radio just before Christmas. "That helps to reduce the cost of health care over the long term. I think that's a smart thing to do."

Fox News' Major Garrett contributed to this report.

Let me see if I have this correctly.  Obama thinks we spend more than we need to on insurance via our employee based Health Care Plans

SO His Solution is to TAX them make them cost MORE so we will not be able to afford what we have and will therefore settle for a cheaper Health Care Plan?

And THAT is his idea of LOWERING Costs???

A Sisterhood of Mommy Patriots
I recall the night before the First Gulf War, when we saw on TV, Saddam Hussein being broadcast with a small American boy.

As he placed his hand on the child's sholder, you could see the boy shivering in terror.

I looked over at my mother and my aunts who were there that night and their faces were like images carved out of stone.

And I knew that this Nation was going to War.

When, after the attack on Pearl Harbor Isoroku Yamamoto said, ""I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve"

He was speaking of a pygmy compared to the righteous rage that you waken when you convince the mothers and grandmothers of this country that you threaten their children.

Folks recent events and Politics as Usual have wakened that rage.

And this Nation is going to War.

I present to you a website that I do not qualify to join, but I reccomend.

A Network of principled mothers, grandmothers, daughters, & guardians of our nation's children dedicated to the 9 Principles & 12 Values

9 12 Project

The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

To these we add this one:

Children are a gift from God and a sacred responsibility

Sold Out By The Senate

Senate Blocks GOP Effort to Include Census Citizenship Question

 

Senate Democrats on Thursday rejected a GOP attempt to require next year's census forms to include a question about citizenship status -- an effort opponents called anti-immigrant.

The proposal by Republican Sens. David Vitter of Louisiana and Robert Bennett of Utah was aimed at excluding non-citizens from the population totals that are used to figure the number of congressional representatives for each state.

But the Vitter plan fell after a 60-39 procedural vote made it ineligible for inclusion in a bill funding the census.

There you have it folks the 60 votes on strict Party lines are all about Power and Greed,  they don't care SQUAT about Congress reflecting the desire of American CITIZENS.

 Call your Senators and thank them for standing up for you and your Family, or Not as the Case may be,

Dia de los Muertos
Topic: Out of Flyover Land
The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos or All Souls' Day) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and by Latin Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration occurs on November 1st and 2nd in connection with the Catholic holiday of All Saints' Day which occurs on November 1st and All Souls' Day which occurs on November 2nd.

And after this year we can remember it as the Day that ACORN like a Resurrected Zombie, re qualified for Federal Funding.

Did you like me, cheer when you heard that BOTH  Republicans AND Democrats in Congress voted to suspend Federal Funding of ACORN?

Well TRICK'OR'TREAT!

The suspension was only good up to October 31st.

Yes on El Dia de los Muertos ACORN will be once again eligible for Federal Funding
.
I suspect some members of Congress did not have the courage to vote their true convictions and so created this stop gap measure in the hopes that after a whole month the Public would not notice it when they reinstated business as usual.

If you substitute the word ACORN for ACLU in this video you will have a fairly accurate of our present dilemma.

Banned Is Better
Topic: Out of Flyover Land

This whole Fox versus the White house has brought to my mind the story given by Billy Joel on the origin of "Only the Good Die Young."

 There appears to me to be some parallels and I find the dichotomy hilarious.

First listen to Billy Joel.

 

 


 

 I have this mental picture of average American's sitting in their family rooms and as Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod and  Anita Dunn  spouted off about Fox News,

Reacting with

 What?

What Can't We Hear?

What Is It They Don't Want Us To Hear???

While at the same time a cackle of fiendish glee arose from the dark dank Dominions of Fox News

Coupled with the plaintive tones of

 

Puh-LEASE B'rer White House DON'T throw us in the B'riar Patch!

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.
