Reality sets in for a Libtard

I could not stop laughing at this idiot, Chris Matthews. He was an Obama sycophant since the beginning and helped the Obama Propaganda machine fool the American people. Aaaaawwww poor Chris is now suffering from buyers remorse like alot of disillusioned Libtards out there. Chris helped usher in the destruction that the Obama Regime will inflict on us. The look on Andrea Mitchell is also priceless as she can't believe that a fellow traveller is speaking such heresies about the 'Chosen' one.

This can be added to previous Chris Matthews pre-disallusion moments that have been with us throught the last few years. Chris wanted to Obamadoctrinate he 'forgets that Obama is black'...

or this moment is a pure classic Libtard moment...Chris Matthews showing off his manlove for Obama...

P.O. Thomas Wortham IV

May 20, 2010
Thomas Wortham, Chicago Police Officer And Iraq War Veteran, Killed In Robbery Attempt

Sophia Tareem 05/20/10 03:30PM

CHICAGO — A 30-year-old Chicago police officer who recently returned from a tour of duty in Iraq was shot and killed when several people approached him outside his family's home and tried to steal his new motorcycle, authorities said Thursday.

Thomas Wortham IV's father – a retired Chicago police officer – came to his son's aid and shot two of the attackers, killing one of them late Wednesday, police said. Retired police officers are allowed to keep guns.

"This is a tragedy. This young man survived two tours in Iraq, and came home and got murdered on the streets in front of his house that he grew up in. In front of his father, it's just unbelievable," said Chicago Alderman Freddrenna Lyle. She said she knows the family, who have lived for about three decades in the Chatham neighborhood on the city's South Side.

Wortham was a member of the Wisconsin National Guard, said spokeswoman Capt. Joy Staab. He enlisted in April 1999 and was last promoted to 1st lieutenant in August 2008, she said.

Wortham and his family had been vocal in efforts to curb street violence – a particularly hot button issue in Chicago where two Illinois lawmakers recently asked the governor to send in the National Guard to patrol the streets.

"It's starting to feel like it's expected in this community," the younger Wortham told the Chicago Tribune in an interview earlier this month. "When people think of the South Side of Chicago, they think violence. In Chatham, that's not what we see. It's happened, and we're going to fix it, so it doesn't happen again."

Wortham had been on an advisory council for a park in his neighborhood, and worked on making it more safe for children, Lyle said.

Wortham had been on the force for three years, according to Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis.

Bob Alberts, the assistant principal at Brother Rice High School, from which the slain officer graduated in 1998, said Wortham ran track for four years and played football.

"He had a great personality. He was bubbly, he was funny," Alberts said. "We're pretty depressed around here."

On Thursday, Lyle visited with the family, who have declined to comment.

"They are distraught. It's got to be the most horrible experience that a father could ever have," she said. "We appreciate everyone's concerns, but it's very difficult for the family right now."

Earlier this month, Wortham attended a memorial in Washington, D.C., for police officers killed in the line of duty. Members of Pipes and Drums of the Chicago Police Department also attended, said the group's president Joe Bowes.

"Our prayers go out to the family of Officer Wortham," the group's Facebook page read Thursday.

Charges were pending against the injured suspect, who was reported in critical condition, police spokesman Robert Perez said. Police were searching for two additional suspects who fled the scene after the shootings.

The Independent Police Review Authority, which investigates all police-involved shootings, has been notified, said spokesman Curtis Travers.

"The entire city of Chicago extends condolences and prayers to the family," Chicago Mayor Richard Daley said at a news conference. "We think of him serving not only our city, but our country."

Thomas Wortham IV, Off-Duty Cop Just Back from Iraq, Killed on South Side

One Suspect Killed, Police Seek Two Others

Chicago - Thomas Wortham IV survived two tours of duty in the war zones of Iraq, but the off-duty Chicago police officer was shot and killed during a robbery attempt in the South Side neighborhood where he grew up.

Wortham, 30, was gunned down around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. He was leaving his parents’ home in the 8400 block of South King Drive and sitting on his new motorcycle when he was approached by several men who tried to steal the bike.

In the ensuing gunfire, Wortham was shot in the head. He was pronounced dead just after midnight at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The officer’s father — himself a retired Chicago police sergeant and, like his son, a military veteran — came to Wortham’s aid and shot two of the attackers, killing one, police said. Two others got away. Charges are pending against the injured suspect, who was taken to Christ Medical Center.

Ald. Freddrenna Lyle (6th) has known Wortham and his family for years. She said she’s outraged that “an intelligent young man” she called “the best we had to offer” survived war, only to be gunned down in the neighborhood — Chatham — where three generations of his family lived.

“You go to Iraq,” said Lyle. “It’s a war zone. You come back to a community you’ve been safe in all of your life and lose your life? It’s just unfathomable.”

Wortham had gone to see his parents “to show his dad his new bike,” said Lyle, who represented Wortham when he closed on a building in the neighborhood.

He’d also driven her around during one of her aldermanic campaigns, she said.

“To have people try to rob him of his motorcycle — to have that happen at his father’s house? I’m numb and heartbroken,” she said. “He was willing to put his life on the line for this country, only to have people who want nothing and are about nothing take his life. I’m just so angry about this.”

Wortham was active in his community. He was president of the Cole Park Advisory Council, a role he sought so he could “keep the park safe, enjoyable and well-stocked for the children of the neighborhood where he was raised,” Lyle said, and was involved in a “take back the park” effort planned for Sunday in response to recent shootings there.

Wortham was gunned down in front of the house where he grew up. His grandfather built it. It’s at the north end of Cole Park.

Lyle called him “a surprisingly mild-mannered and softspoken young man. He would always make us feel so old because he was always saying, ‘Yes, ma’am. Yes, sir.’ I kept telling him, ‘Don’t call me ma’am. We’re not old enough.’ ”

Lt. Eve Gushes worked with Wortham in the police department’s Englewood District. She said he had recently returned from Washington after traveling there to pay tribute to fallen officers at the national law enfocement memorial.

“We are all in mourning here,” Gushes said.

Wortham was single and a graduate of Brother Rice High School and had been with the Chicago Police Department for three years, according to police Supt. Jody Weis.

He’d been on furlough since returning from his latest military service, said Gushes. She said he was proud to be a cop and proud to serve his community.

His death was even harder to deal with, Gushes said, because “this is the second young officer we’ve lost within a short period of time, and we’re going to have to dig deep within ourselves to get through this.”

Officer Alejandro “Alex” Valadez, 27, who’d also been a Chicago cop for three years, was shot and killed in the line of duty last June. Valadez, who also came from a family of police officers, was a graduate of Brother Rice, like Wortham.

The shooting stunned neighbors of the Wortham family.

Miles Stewart, 48, was coming home from work on the back of a buddy’s bike Wednesday night. As he rounded the corner a block from the Wortham home, he said, “10 shots rang out.”

He said Wortham was on the ground in his motorcycle helmet and gear. Two of the would-be robbers were lying on the ground, he said, and two more jumped in a car and sped off, running Wortham over.

“I ran over there and went up to Thomas to help, and his dad told me to get away from his son,” Stewart said. “"His dad had two guns — a semi-automatic and a revolver, and he said, ‘They were robbing my son, and I shot them.’ ”

After Stewart identified himself as a family friend, Wortham’s father let him assist, he said.

The robbers sped away down an alley, drove around the block to see what had happened, then fled down 85th street, leaving Wortham's Yamaha R1 sport bike behind, he said.

Neighbor Elliott Powell, 52, a lawyer, said the robbers clipped his wife’s car, leaving a red paint mark as they fled.

He said the Wortham family was heavily involved in trying to clean up Cole Park.

"They’re hanging in there,” he said this morning.

As a police officer armed with an assault rifle guarded Wortham’s father and the family home today, neighbors said the shooting had pulled the blue-collar Chatham
community together.

“You can band together and try to take your neighborhood back, but you’ve gotta have everybody on board,” said neighbor Wesley Andrews, an engineer. “Unless everybody pulls together, it won’t work.”

Speaking about his neighborhood, Andrews said: “It used to be something to be proud of — you’d stick your chest out and say, ‘I’m from Chatham.’ ”

But, with the closing of public housing projects in recent years across the city, Chatham has seen violent people move in.

A prayer vigil is planned for 7 o'clock tonight on the Worthams' block.

I want to extend my condolences to the Wortham family. The murder of PO Thomas Wortham IV is not only a loss to the City of Chicago but to our great nation. I have had the pleasure of serving with PO Kevin Wortham, his cousin, and know what a wonderful police family that they are. God bless them and please keep them in your prayers. Thank you.

Police Officers under attack

The Progressives enjoy having the MSM spend unlimited News hours about the Police, spinning the stories usually negatively, to have the officers appear to be a force of occupation rather then faithful public servants. This following video is what is really happening to us and we continue to go out to preserve the peace, to serve and protect.

To all my brothers and sisters, stay safe and return home the way you went to work.

Bikers Protested

This is from an email that I recieved.

Animal Rights Activists protested Leather-wearing at a biker rally.

Johnstown, PA (GlossyNews) - Local and state police scoured the hills outside rural Johnstown, Pennsylvania, after reports of three animal rights activists going missing after attempting to protest the wearing of leather at a large motorcycle gang rally this weekend. Two others, previously reported missing, were discovered by fast food workers "duct taped inside several fast food restaurant dumpsters," according to police officials.

"Something just went wrong," said a still visibly shaken organizer of the protest. "Something just went horribly, horribly, wrong." The organizer said a group of concerned animal rights activist groups, "growing tired of throwing fake blood and shouting profanities at older women wearing leather or fur coats," decided to protest the annual motorcycle club event "in a hope to show them our outrage at their wanton use of leather in their clothing and motor bike seats." "In fact," said the organizer, "motorcycle gangs are one of the biggest abusers of wearing leather, and we decided it was high time that we let them know that we disagree with them using it.ergo, they should stop."

According to witnesses, protesters arrived at the event in a vintage 1960's era Volkswagen van and began to pelt the gang members with balloons filled with red colored water, simulating blood, and shouting "you're murderers" to passers by. This, evidently, is when the brouhaha began.

"They peed on me!!!" charged one activist. "They grabbed me, said I looked like I was French, started calling me 'La Trene', and duct taped me to a tree so they could pee on me all day!"

Still others claimed they were forced to eat hamburgers and hot dogs under duress. Those who resisted were allegedly held down while several bikers "farted on their heads."

Police officials declined comments on any leads or arrests due to the ongoing nature of the investigation; however, organizers for the motorcycle club rally expressed "surprise" at the allegations.

"That's preposterous," said one high-ranking member of the biker organizing committee. "We were having a party, and these people showed up and were very rude to us. They threw things at us, called us names, and tried to ruin the entire event. So, what did we do? We invited them to the party! What could be more friendly than that? You know, just because we are all members of motorcycle clubs does not mean we do not care about inclusiveness. Personally, I think it shows a lack of character for them to be saying such nasty things about us after we bent over backwards to make them feel welcome."

When confronted with the allegations of force-feeding the activists meat, using them as ad hoc latrines, leaving them incapacitated in fast food restaurant dumpsters, and 'farting on their heads,' the organizer declined to comment in detail. "That's just our secret handshake," assured the organizer.

WHO in the heck is stupid enough to protest against a bunch of bikers???? They are lucky this is ALL that happened to them!!

This is how the Police found one of them.

Death of Detroit

Detroit - An American city that is providing a past, present and future window of our nation.

Antonie Laumet de La Mothe de Cadillac ( March 5, 1658 - Oct. 15, 1730) was a French explorer, soldier, and leader. Cadillac founded the city of Detroit in 1701 and was the governor of the Louisiana Territory from 1710 to 1716 or 1717.

The Wall Street Journal

MAY 14, 2010. Detroit Shrinks Itself, Historic Homes and All

DETROIT—Wrecking crews are preparing to tear down a landmark 5,000-square-foot house in the posh neighborhood of Palmer Woods in the coming weeks, a sign that Detroit is finally getting serious about razing thousands of vacant and abandoned structures across the city.

In leveling 1860 Balmoral Drive, the boyhood home of one-time presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Detroit is losing a small piece of its history. But the project is part of a demolition effort that is just now gaining momentum and could help define the city's future.

Detroit is finally chipping away at a glut of abandoned homes that has been piling up for decades, and intends to take advantage of warm weather and new federal funding to demolish some 3,000 buildings by the end of September.

View Full Image
Krishnan Anantharaman/The Wall Street Journal Mitt Romney's boyhood home is among 3,000 derelict structures Detroit plans to demolish by the end of September as it attacks blight and crime.
Mayor Dave Bing has pledged to knock down 10,000 structures in his first term as part of a nascent plan to "right-size" Detroit, or reconfigure the city to reflect its shrinking population.

When it's all over, said Karla Henderson, director of the Detroit Building Department, "There's going to be a lot of empty space."

Mr. Bing hasn't yet fully articulated his ultimate vision for what comes after demolition, but he has said entire areas will have to be rebuilt from the ground up. For now, his plan calls for the tracts to be converted to other uses, such as parks or farms.

Even when the demolitions are complete, Detroit will still have a huge problem on its hands. The city has roughly 90,000 abandoned or vacant homes and residential lots, according to Data Driven Detroit, a nonprofit that tracks demographic data for the city.

After a stuttering start, caused by a dispute over the disposal of asbestos from demolished homes, the program is just now gaining pace.

City officials say they aren't sure how many structures ultimately need to be torn down. The mortgage crisis compounded Detroit's economic decline, leaving nearly 30% of the city's housing stock vacant, according to Data Driven Detroit.

"Neighborhoods that are considered stable are now at 20% vacancy," said Deborah Younger, a development consultant involved in the demolition effort.

Until recently, the city didn't have the funds to tackle its growing list of houses slated for demolition. But $20 million in federal funds, primarily stimulus dollars has helped to kick-start the effort.

Demolition, particularly of historic buildings, is a sensitive issue in Detroit, often leading to wrenching battles between developers, residents, city officials and preservationists. But many residents are now pleading with the city to tear down decaying structures that are attracting crime and repelling home buyers. However, some still worry that the sort of large-scale bulldozing that the city is now talking about will forcibly dislocate longtime homeowners and preclude any chance of a comeback for Detroit.

"The city has never done this before," says Ms. Henderson, the Building Department chief. "We had to make a culture change."

The demolition of the Romney family home is the first of its kind in Palmer Woods, a high-end enclave in northwest Detroit that was developed at the dawn of the U.S. auto industry and housed many of its pioneers. Palmer Woods has just a handful of vacant properties among its 292 homes, according to residents. It's one of the anchor neighborhoods that is critical to the success of Mayor Bing's right-sizing effort.

Journal Communitydiscuss..“ I think it's very important to have a clean slate to begin the process to lower crime and help potential residents to see the opportunity instead of the blight. ”
.—Jamie Prevo.
The house was owned by Mr. Romney's parents, George and Lenore Romney, from 1941 until 1953, when the family moved to the northern suburbs. The elder Mr. Romney would go on to become head of American Motors Corp., then governor of Michigan and U.S. secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

As recently as 2002, the house sold for $645,000. But it has had a troubled history since then, lapsing into foreclosure more than once, bouncing between lenders and falling into disrepair. Last year, following years of complaints from neighbors, Wayne County declared it "a public nuisance and blight" and ordered it demolished.

The younger Mr. Romney, who is considered a leading GOP presidential candidate for 2012, said "it's sad" that his childhood home is being razed, "but sadder still to consider what has happened to the city of Detroit, which has been left hollow by fleeing jobs and liberal social policies."

Residents of Palmer Woods take pride in their tradition of historic preservation. But they're happy to see this house go. "This is an eyesore, and it makes no economic sense to fix it," said Joel Pitcoff, a retiree who lives around the block. "Who wants to spend $1 million on a house so it will be worth $400,000?"

Progressive looks at the future of Detroit.

Sarah Palin visits Chicago

There was only this small mention in the Chicago Sun Times about Sarah Palin's visit to the 'Windy City', the Peoples Democratic Republic of Chicago. This is the Progressives Mecca which spawned Obama and the people here are starting to see what has been going on with the Liberals destruction of our way of life and our country. The MSM has remained very quiet about this story, at least the Obama propaganda machine is still working.

Sarah Palin: 'Fighting words' when deny girls' team chance at play-offs

May 12, 2010

BY ABDON M. PALLASCH Political Reporter

Former Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin brought 4,000 Chicago-area fans to their feet Wednesday night, attacking President Obama, corrupt Illinois politicians and a Highland Park school that told its girl’s basketball team it could not go to the play-offs in Arizona.

“Them are fighting words when you say a girl can’t play in the basketball tournament, so we’re going to see about that,” she said.

Noting that the girls at Highland Park High School had bake sales to pay their way to the national finals for the first time in 26 years, Palin suggested conservatives could get the girls to Arizona despite High School District 113’s decision to keep the girls home this winter because of Arizona’s strict new laws against illegal aliens.

Palin noted the school is still sponsoring a trip to China.

In an e-mail to Pioneer Press, school district assistant superintendent Sue Hebson said the decision is not a political statement, but rather for the safety of students.

“District 113 boasts a diverse student population and, as a school district, we believe in equal opportunity for each of our students,” she said. “We cannot commit at this time to playing at a venue where some of our students’ safety or liberty might be placed at risk because of state immigration law.”

“You know how they treat girls in China?” Palin said. “It makes no sense. Even if they have to do this on our own. ... If the kids have to ‘Go Rogue’ girls.”

Palin led off by saying, “I’m really glad to be here on the president’s home turf. ... The eyes of America are on this state, watching what will come out of the political process and the 2012 elections: If it can be done in Illinois, it can be done anywhere.”

She thanked Illinois for giving the world Ronald Reagan and the Tea Party movement.

“The 21st Century Tea Party movement, it starts right here in Chicago,” Palin said to cheers. “This is where it starts. So Illinois, your place in the history of this grass movement has been instrumental.”

Earlier, Palin impressed Illinois’ top Republicans willing to spend $500 to $25,000 at a fund-raiser for the state party.

“We talked about the situation in Illinois — the deficit, the high taxes, job creation,” said the party’s nominee for governor, State Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington. “I told her, ‘Your being here is helping rally the troops and get the message out.’”

Brady and his lieutenant governor candidate, Jason Plummer, both made last-minute decisions to attend the party fund-raiser. But GOP Senate candidate Mark Kirk, who has tried to cultivate a more moderate image, said his congressional voting obligations would keep him in Washington, D.C. Wednesday night.

“She came in and was gracious enough to help us raise money,” said state Sen. Jim Durkin. “It was very low-key, no speeches. She just met with people and talked with them. She said we have the chance to win many seats. People were very eager to take out their check books.”

Durkin brought a picture he took with Palin, himself and Mike Ditka at a Latrobe, Pa., rally a week before the 2008 election, which Palin signed for him.

“She said this could be a good year for Republicans,” State GOP Chairman Patrick Brady said.

“It was a moving experience,” said former GOP candidate for governor Adam Andrzejewski. “She was very personable. She was encouraging us to keep up the fight for reform in Illinois.”

Some 4,000 Sarah Palin fans paid the more reasonable but still-steep $56 to spend “An Evening with Sarah Palin” later at the Rosemont Theater.

Everything I Ever Needed To Know About Islam

Things a Marxist says...

Alex, what is the Progressive nonsense that Obama spews?

Also, what does 'impancipation' mean? It's a good thing that George W. didn't say that or we would hear about it non-stop on the MSM...

Cold Warrior

A Salute to my fellow Cold Warriors out there. This is a sight that finally shows that Reagan's policies were correct. We have won and the former Soviets are no longer an enemy. I have to admit that it was a strange to see US Soldiers from the Army's 2nd Battalion, 18th Regiment marching in Red Square. The British are marching their Coldstream Guards. If you are wondering why the French are marching, this unit is part of an Air Squadron that fought with the Allies against the Nazis.
This is the first time that the World War II allies have marched together to celebrate their victory in 65 years. There was very little mention of this event on the MSM because of the current political situation here in the US. The Progressives view the the collapse of the former Soviet Union as a bitter reminder that their own ambitions are doomed to eventual failure.

This is what the Russians wrote about the event:

'U.S. troops marched through Red Square for the first time in a Victory Day parade on Sunday as Russia celebrated the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II.

It was a scene cut from Russia's Cold War nightmares: 71 Americans in dark blue dress uniforms carried the U.S. flag over the cobblestones, past the mausoleum of Vladimir Lenin and the towers of the Kremlin wall to salute Russian leaders.


Author Alexander Prokhanov, editor in chief of the nationalist Zavtra daily, called the appearance of U.S. servicemen in Red Square a national humiliation.

"The fact that American troops are trampling underfoot the cobblestones of Red Square is a huge shame and humiliation for Russia," Prokhanov said. "Thus they are celebrating their final victory not in World War II but in the Cold War." '

The Cold War was one of the longest that we were ever engaged in. We have suffered much from the different forms of the Leftist's ideology. We have to keep at it and continue our pursuit that the Constitution was written as the original intent of the founding fathers and that it is not a living changing document as the Progressives are always conveniently espousing to support their Leftist agenda and policies. There are some that say that we also lost the Cold War. We have to keep our faith in God that we will prevail.

Democrats are Socialists - this from a Democrat

A Democrat warns of socialist takeover in the Democratic Party
Many of us are now ashamed to be Democrats. More than that, we have come to fear our own Democratic Party. Hatred and corruption – the roots of socialism – are on the march as they have never been before, and leading this march is our Democratic Party.

From Eric Pearson, Democratic Party candidate for Congress in the 5th district, Tennessee via

The National Democratic Party has abandoned many of its older principles and ideals, and as a Democrat I’m extremely dissatisfied with the ‘Change We Can Believe In’ politicians and their obsession with making our Nation more like the Europe our founding fathers had left behind.

Already most Democrats know their pleas to the Democratic Party are only being answered by repeated insult and injury.

Many of our elected officials are no longer thinking of themselves as
being our representatives, but instead refer to themselves as leaders in the true form of tyrants.

To all intents and purposes the elected representatives within the National Democratic Party are no longer following in the time-honored footsteps laid down by the founding fathers of our great Nation. In fact, we as democrats see our elected representatives within the Democratic Party abandoning the principles and values as set forth within the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.

They no longer bothering with letting sound arguments and good reasoning rule the day when they can steal from others to finance their own success, and never mind the truth when our political elite can gain power by lying and manipulation. Pushing and pulling data just like the Republicans, these Democratic Party hucksters press their agenda of fear all the same to their own desired outcomes as well.

Many of us are now ashamed to be Democrats. More than that, we have come to fear our own Democratic Party. Hatred and corruption – the roots of socialism – are on the march as they have never been before, and leading this march is our Democratic Party. Increasingly, mainstream Democrats are uncomfortable with what they are seeing in our party. All the more, we know it is dangerous.

As Democrats we find ourselves marching in a parade with people Harry Truman or even Jack Kennedy would not recognize – socialist (also know as progressives). Strangely, without meaning to, we the mainstream Democrats find ourselves representing this “socialist movement.” However, for the socialist within our Democratic Party, there is nothing so strange about it. Socialists have always sought to leverage corruption for the sake of power.

As a result, our Democratic Party has already lost the equivalent of every member we have acquired over the past seven years or more, and many of them are now supporting the tea party. More importantly, a recent Newsweek cover declared, “We are all socialists now.”

Furthermore, without doubt a large majority of our Democratic Party representatives in Washington are tainted by corruption, and the liberals among us are supporting the ideologies of progressives with their agendas based on moving our Nation deeper into a socialist form of government. This is a real threat to everything we hold sacred in America, and they are gaining evermore control over our Democratic Party, our Nation, and the American people.

Meanwhile our middle-class families are looking for more than empty promises. They want to go back to work. And they want our Democratic Party representatives who run Washington to stop pursuing a big government, big spending agenda that includes a government takeover of health care, stimulus bills, a new national energy tax and taxpayer-funded bailouts.

Thank you, and God bless America.

Eric Pearson, Democratic Party candidate for US Congress in the 5th district, Tennessee.

The Daily Beck


I recieved this in an email and found it worth sharing...



Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:

We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce.... I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

Here is a model separation agreement:

Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).

We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens. We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.

We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N.. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon and Volvo (now owned by the Chinese) you can find.

You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.

We'll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.

Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.

Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you Answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

John J. Wall
Law Student and an American

P. S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & Jane Fonda with you.

P. S. S. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country."

Obama is cutting Government Expenditure...

...but on the backs of our troops who are now fighting a war! Shameful.

Outrage: Obama Administration Targets Military for Pay Reductions

Sunday, May 9, 2010 11:27 PM
By: Newsmax Wires

President Barack Obama — who came to power with the help of government employee unions across the nation and has lavished on them hundreds of billions in stimulus funds to keep them on federal, state and local payrolls with no strings attached — is moving to cut spending on salaries for military personnel.

This weekend The Washington Post headlined story, "Pentagon Asking Congress to Hold Back on Generous Increases in Troop Pay,” disclosed that the Obama administration is “pleading” with Congress to give military personnel a much smaller increase in pay than lawmakers have proposed.

The Pentagon contends that Congress simply has been too generous with troops during the past decade.

In fact, lawmakers have lavished so much money on troops, according to the Post, that service members are now better compensated than workers in the private sector with similar experience and education levels.

For example, the military brass claims that an average sergeant in the Army with four years of service and one dependent would receive $52,589 in annual compensation, according to the paper. This figure includes basic pay, housing, and subsistence allowances, as well as tax benefits.

Meanwhile, a U.S. postal letter carrier, with no supervisory or hazardous duty, makes approximately $80,000 a year when all benefits are factored in.

Critics of the Obama administration’s efforts to cut soldier’s pay say America’s security has been strengthened by higher pay rates, as qualified veterans are re-enlisting at record rates, reversing the problem the military witnessed just a few years ago.

"Any attempt to link rising military personnel costs with shrinking military readiness is total nonsense," said Thomas J. Tradewell Sr., who leads the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the largest and oldest major combat veterans organization.

"If the Defense Department needs a larger budget for personnel programs, then let the VFW carry that message to Congress. Just don't pin the budget blame on service members and military retirees."

Tradewell's ire was targeted this past week at Clifford L. Stanley, the Defense undersecretary of personnel and readiness, who said during recent testimony before the personnel subcommittee of the Senate Armed Services Committee: "Rising personnel costs could dramatically affect the readiness of the department."

"What's hurtful," said Tradewell, a combat-wounded Vietnam veteran from Sussex, Wis., "is a continuing perception that DoD is more concerned about the budget than they are about recruiting and retaining a professional volunteer force that's been at war now for more than eight years."

According to Stanley, last year was the military's most successful recruiting year since the establishment of the all-volunteer force in 1973.

Although advocates for military families argue that the decade-long spending spree reverses severe cuts that the military suffered in the 1990s, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and other military brass fear that the spending will threaten security in the years to come. That will mean less money to buy weapons and maintain aging equipment.

On Saturday, Gates told reporters that massive deficits can impact how the president and policy makers confront emerging threats like Iran.

Lawmakers consistently have overruled the Pentagon and mandated more-generous pay raises than requested by both the Bush and Obama administrations. Congress has also rejected attempts by the Pentagon to slow soaring healthcare costs, which Gates told reporters are "eating us alive," by raising co-pays or premiums.

The military admits the improving compensation for troops is helping retention.

For example, improvements in pay and benefits have made it more likely that sailors will stick around longer, Vice Adm. Mark E. Ferguson III, the chief of naval personnel, told the Post.

A Navy survey last year found that about 60 percent of spouses wanted their sailors to make a career of Navy life, meaning a stint of at least 20 years. In 2005, only about 20 percent of spouses felt the same way.

"I think pay was previously a concern, but it's started to change," Ferguson said. Congress had been "extremely generous" but rising personnel costs were already influencing what the Navy spends to operate, maintain and modernize its fleet, he added.

The Pentagon wants a pay raise of 1.4 percent for service members next year, an increase based on the Employment Cost Index, which the Labor Department uses to measure private-sector salary increases.

Congress, as it has for the past several years, has indicated it favors a slightly bigger bump, of 1.9 percent.

Although that extra half of a percent may not seem like much, one expert told the Post that it would accrue annually and cost about $3.5 billion over the next decade.

But congressional supporters of the men and women in the Armed Services are questioning why they are being singled out for future pay cutbacks when other government agencies and unions are not.

The U.S. Postal Service, for example, is slated to give letter carriers an increase of 1.9 percent this coming year.

And postal employees are considered to be grossly overpaid compared with their private counterparts. A postal supervisor, for example, can make $70,000 or year or more, plus significant benefits.

Last year, Congress had to help fill a $3.8 billion deficit at the federally backed agency, but there has been no discussion of salary cuts for postal employees. Instead, postal officials have focused on reducing service, including Saturday delivery.

Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants

Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Motor City Madman on Tea Party Movement

What the Tea Parties Stand For
by Ted Nugent
Posted 05/07/2010 ET

I constantly hang out with great Americans from every walk of life. We understand that the American Dream is about being the best that you can be, to work as hard as possible and be accountable in order to be an asset to our families, communities and country.

We expect our government to secure our borders, keep us safe from our enemies, and play by the rules as laid out in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Golden Rule and Ten Commandments, and otherwise pretty much stay the heck out of our way. We the people know that the government is supposed to work for us, not run amok and abandon all accountability as the out-of-control, gluttonous, criminal Fedzilla is currently overtly guilty of.

The Tea Party is so simple, it’s stupid. Named after the uprising of Americans sick and tired of tyrants usurping the new American freedom lifestyle and dream, taxation without representation was merely the tip of that 1773 culture war spear, and now accurately represents the spirit of the 2010 Tea Party movement.

This glorious experiment in self-government is not supposed to be a spectator sport as it has been reduced to for so long. As the boss of government, we the people were supposed to stay in touch with politics and politicians, making sure our will was the force behind policies and law making.

Remember that? The Tea Party Americans do, and we are demanding its return immediately. The New Deal was a raw deal and the Great Society was for losers. A hand out creates the curse of dependency. A hand up is nationalism at its finest.

It is no surprise that the Glenn Beck's and Sarah Palin's of the world are so inspiring and in direct accord with the Tea Party. To listen to these great leaders is to hear the pulse of the best that America has to offer. Faith, hope, charity, honesty, a Herculean work ethic and a vapor trail of positive energy is all the Tea Party stands for.

We don't believe in bail outs, we demand accountability.

We don't want an exit strategy, we want a victory strategy.

We can't believe that Navy SEAL warriors are being indicted for roughing up a murderous terrorist leader in their heroic professional military action to bring in evil criminals.

We are deeply offended by the speaker of the House telling us that we can find out what's in the healthcare bill after they sign it and it becomes law. This is outrageous and it must stop now.

We refuse to accept any longer the rampant corruption, cronyism, and outright abuse of power by willfully disconnected, arrogant bureaucrats.

Who can believe that Fedzilla is taking Goldman Sachs to task while denying that government waste and idiotic policies are behind the economic ruin?

How can such a rookie with zero experience call the shots when it comes to Iran developing nuclear arms?

We are shocked that the President of the United States surrounds himself with self avowed communists, Marxists, Socialists, tax cheats, law breakers, far-left animal right's goons, Mao and Che fans, and czars whose records are so far out of whack with American values as to make the head spin.

We are mad as hell that Fedzilla continues to spend and waste our hard earned tax dollars on laughable programs, bail outs, ridiculous so-called stimulus packages and other boondoggles that have failed miserably in the past, and are failing miserably again. It is sheer lunacy to repeat actions and expect a different outcome. It is time to reign in Fedzilla, and the Tea Party is just that force to reckon with, and clearly the logical voice and action to get it done.

A prime motivator for the Tea Party is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who so eloquently stated, "Those who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We are merely bringing to the surface a tension that is already there".

Dedicated to standing up for our rights and the American Way through nonviolent direct action, just like the glorious and pivotal American upgrade of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, the Tea Party represents a long overdue wake up call for America, and more importantly, American politicians and its lapdog media megaphone.

All that being said, anyone with a working brain knows that Fedzilla is behind every problem America faces today. But the real culprit in the current American tragedy is apathy—a nation with citizens who abandoned our prime responsibility to stay on top of things, to monitor our government, to research candidates, to vote intelligently. The burden falls square on the shoulders of we the people who bent over and let these rotten bureaucrats trample the American Dream.

Better late than never, the Tea Party is a return to paying attention, remaining engaged, and good old American activism, the very soul of America.

I salute the Tea Party and pray to God that it builds steam, galvanizes energy and focus, and enlightens enough Americans to begin the take back in November and beyond.

Comments from an Al Qaida Apologist

I couldn't believe what I heard coming out of the mouth of this twit. She probably would have had wonderful puppy stories to tell about Stalin if she had been a reporter back in the day. This is the type of people that the MSM employs and have spout their Progressive propaganda. This one brain cell propagandist actually hoped that the bomber was not a muslim but a Conservative. In their whacked out political speak, Right-wingers are what these leftist libtards call Conservatives, when in actuality they are the ones who are fellow fascists. If this goof had her way she would now be wearing a burqa and living under dopey sharia law.

This is another shameful display from a Progressive who so want everything that this country stands for fall. They really do need to learn that a Conservative cannot be grouped in with their version of the Rightwing, ie. nazis, fascists, klansman. Those are people who have very similar beliefs as the Progressives. A Conservative believes in the original intent of the Constitution and a limited government that is there to help, rather then hinder the citizens. The Conservative is forever grateful that God has blessed us with the gift of American Exceptionalism.

Don't hold back Rush!

Crist blames GOP exit on 'primary fear'

by Sean Lengell

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist on Sunday said that "primary fear" stirred up from the conservative wing of the Republican Party led him to withdraw from the party's Senate primary last week and run as an independent.

The career Republican said it had become apparent in recent weeks that conservatives had rejected his moderate views and would deny the broader Florida electorate the opportunity to consider his candidacy for the U.S. Senate unless he broke from the party.

"I would emphasize that those are primary Republican voters. It's very different from the November Republican," he said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

"What's happening in our country is, unfortunately, there's a lot of primary fear," the governor added. "I see people in Washington in the House or the Senate, and they are so concerned about being faced or challenged in the primary that they can't speak their true sense, their free will. They feel kind of shackled, if you will, by what the primary voters might do."

Once a darling of the Republican Party, Mr. Crist is fighting for his political life despite being considered a shoo-in a year ago to win his party's primary and the probable winner in November's general election. But his support among Republicans began to erode the moment conservative former House Speaker Marco Rubio entered the primary race.

Mr. Crist in recent months has fallen significantly behind Mr. Rubio in polls for the open Senate seat. Recent surveys suggest Mr. Rubio still would defeat the governor and Democratic Rep. Kendrick B. Meek in a three-way race, though the margin is much tighter.

Mr. Rubio, 38, said Sunday that Mr. Crist's decision to shun his party showed that he is more concerned about political self-preservation than the people of Florida.

"You're never going to be able to hold him accountable to anything, because his opinions are going to change based upon what polling tells him and what his political convenience tells him," Mr. Rubio said on "Fox News Sunday."

With Mr. Rubio all but assured of winning his party's Aug. 24 primary, he said he now is looking forward to the opportunity to "talk to a broader audience of Floridians about our mainstream positions." When "Fox News Sunday" moderator Chris Wallace asked how a self-avowed conservative could consider his positions "mainstream," he responded that "conservative thought is the mainstream position in America."

But Mr. Rubio is embedded so deeply in this party's conservative base that he faces a tough challenge attracting independents and Democrats, a skill that propelled Mr. Crist throughout a successful political career.

Statewide races in Florida - which have straddled the red-blue partisan line for years - are also historically difficult to handicap.

"The support for Rubio that has been most vocal and vociferous has been from the organized party people; the county chairs, that kind of stuff," said Robert Crew, a political science professor at Florida State University. "Nobody, including the Republican Party, knows what the Florida electorate is going to do on this.

"The Florida electorate is not necessarily a Republican electorate; it's not necessarily a right-wing electorate."

Florida state Sen. John Thrasher, also chairman of the Florida Republican Party, ordered the removal of Mr. Crist's official portrait from the party's Tallahassee headquarters almost immediately after the governor announced Thursday he was withdrawing from the party's primary.

In a high-profile show of defiance, Mr. Thrasher ordered the painting sold on eBay. A party spokeswoman said Sunday said the online auction will begin Monday.

Mr. Crist has embraced his newfound independence, and has sidestepped the question of whether he would caucus with Republicans if he won the election.

"I will caucus with the people of Florida," he said on "Meet the Press."

When pressed by moderator David Gregory that such a position would be almost politically impossible, Mr. Crist still declined to pick a side.

Floridians "don't want you to say, 'Look, you have to either go with Democrats or Republicans,' " he said. "You have to go with your gut and with your heart."
