Dear Congressman Stark,
I will put every spare penny I have into seeing that you are not re-elected. Your comments to and about your constituents have gone way over the top. It’s time you are voted out of office and I will be proud to aid in that endeavor.
This guy needs to go the same way of Alan Greyson (“Republicans want you all to die and die quickly”.) These are 2 of the most arrogant, lying, condescending, jackasses in this government.
Stark is the guy who said, back in 2003 I believe, that Bush was sending young Americans to Iraq to have their heads blow off for his (Bush’s) amusement. Did you ever hear about this back then? Of course not. That’s the lame stream media for you. Protect the Bush haters and bash Bush at every turn.
But by God, do not let “you lie!” go without 2 weeks worth of prime time coverage.
My swear-o-meter is off the charts. I’m so angry with this government, with these politicians that I can hardly contain myself.

Story here at the Arlington Advocate site.
Dear Ms. Bodie,
If I am not mistaken, your wages and those of your teachers are paid by the federal government. That money comes from people like me. It’s people like me who your high school principal Charles Skidmore is snubbing with his outrageous refusal to pledge allegiance to the flag that represents the nation and people who pay his and your wages.
Who is the Leba Heighman that she has any say on whether teachers can recite the pledge or not? Her concern for the rights of those who would rather not recite it, needs to be revisited. Perhaps those teachers should consider their discomfort level when they cash their federal (tax paid) paychecks.
It’s because of teachers, principals and school board members like you have in Arlington that so many of us are opposed to your unions and the poor job performances that we taxpayers are forced to support.
Roxanne (and my location)
If you’re of the mood, email Superintendent Bodie, Principal Skidmore and the local newspaper and register your complaint about this. The school website is here.
That page also includes the phone number to Skidmore’s office.

New BFF going out for cheeseburgers
The Obama administration may have illusions that a new era of peace and good will has broken out between Moscow and Washington. But the complaints [against a Russian spy ring] make clear that Moscow has never stopped trying to collect information about the society its agents infiltrated and continued spying on.
Oh give me a break! A Russian spy ring broken up and Obama thinks we can be friends with them? Take the red chief out for cheeseburger and the whole reset button business will correct years of suspicion.
If this isn’t the height of naivety, nothing is. What will it take for people to figure out what a knucklehead president we have?
The New York Times reported this morning that President Obama was not “happy” about the timing of the arrests so close to his fabled cheeseburger exchange with Russia’s president.
Of course he’s not happy! Does this not make him look even more dopier than usual? I am seriously laughing my ass off here. He can’t possibly prove himself less qualified for this job.
What he should be unhappy about is Russia’s spying, with what its “business as usual” attitude suggests about how Russia sees its relationship with Washington: Leaders change; interests usually don’t.
Interests only change if you’re the current American president. His interest is in making us more red and more like them.
The continuation of a spy ring of this magnitude suggests that Washington’s slobbering love affair with the Russians may be a trifle one-sided. Obama should remember Ronald Reagan’s advice on dealing with the Kremlin rulers: trust but verify.

Right now, in my household there’s a subtle feeling of doom. I’m in the process of finding a new job so my contribution to the household income is in flux. We had a plan to pay off all our debts (aside from the mortgage) in the next 6 months but it seems like as soon as we think we are getting ahead, something comes along and throws a wrench in the works.
But we are no different than anyone else and in fact, we are better off than many. We could be living on the gulf coast right now and depending on the fruits of the gulf that are dying before our eyes or tourism dollars that aren’t materializing, to feed our family.
Things could be so much worse. And they very well might get worse.
I keep reading that next year we will be paying more taxes. I already need to save several hundred dollars a month to pay my taxes and they will be higher next year? You’ve got to be kidding me, right? More in taxes for what? For less liberty.
I read this story tonight via Drudge Report and it makes me sink further into this morass of gloom. Obama can shut down the internet for up to 4 months if this bill passes. No one will ever convince me that this is related to national security concerns. This is all about shutting down speech that has become inconvenient for the left. They don’t want any more James O’Keefe or Hannah Giles exposing scams like ACORN. No more Matt Drudge or Andrew Breitbart. No more YouTube videos that catches a politician man-handling a college student on the street for asking a simple question.
Is this what it will take to wake up our fellow citizens? When they lose the internet will they finally realize that tObama is not what he was billed? I’m hoping that any legislator who votes for this bill will be defeated in November (or whenever he/she is up for re-election.)
Shut down the internet? This is incredible to me. It follows that he could turn off our television, too. He could leave us totally in the dark with no voice and nothing to hear or read. The implications of this has got to scare anyone with a functioning brain. There is already technology out there that can control our thermostats from some remote bureaucrats desk somewhere. The government could control how cold or warm our homes are or how many times a week we run our washing machines.
And now they want to control what we KNOW and LEARN? What we say, read and write? We have got to stop this. This has been a dramatic take-over of America. It has happened so fast that most of us have no idea what new laws and regulations have been imposed on us. You have to spend 10 hours a day reading the news and the bills to even have a clue what they are doing to us.
They are counting on fatigue and surrender from the citizens to get all this stuff past us. It’s what I’ve been feeling for the past week. I’ve not been able to post anything to my blog because of this overwhelming feeling of doom. They want us to get tired and give up.
We simply can’t give up and surrender our rights and our nation to these marxists. This has to be stopped.

Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said [Alvin] Greene was not a “legitimate” candidate and called his victory “a mysterious deal.” (Yes, how could a young African-American man with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, no experience, no qualifications, and no demonstrable work history come out of nowhere and win an election?)

Most of us are children or grandchildren of WWII vets and grew up during the “duck and cover” days of the cold war. We grew up fearing the great Soviet war machine that was an out growth of WWII. We are not yet, that far removed from those days. I think that’s why when we hear the words of Ken Salazar keeping his “boot on the throat of BP” it simply causes a small wave of nausea to wash over us.
Those are dictatorial words that make Americans see red – as in communist red.
Rhetoric like that is a total disregard for the rule of law that we have grown to expect, that we take for granted and that most of us don’t even consider because it’s become so — American.
No one wants to see BP off the hook for this mess. Everyone wants BP to take full responsibility for what has happened, in all ways, including financial. But phrases like ‘knowing whose ass to kick’ and ‘keeping a boot on the throat’ does not reflect the kind of justice most of us want or the way we want justice to be meted out.
Words matter and how words are used matters, a lot. These kinds of threats only serve to turn off Americans and reinforces the opinion of a great many that this administration is too far left or too far red – you choose. It sounds a little too jack-booted Nazi for my palate.
It also illustrates how Obamas thug mentality has trickled down in his administration and infected his underlings. Remember Ray LaHood (Sec. of the Dept. of Transportation) saying he would “coerce Americans out of their cars”? Coerce me from driving? Coercion isn’t such a nice word either. It has some criminal overtones, actually. I will not be coerced out of my car to have the government’s boot on my throat so that someone in the Obama adminstration can kick my ass… thank you very much!
Who do these people think they are? And how long do they think they will remain in charge of anything?

From the Los Angeles Times:
Two much-debated City Hall issues are expected to converge this week when the Los Angeles Police Department’s red light camera program moves to the front of the line for an exemption from the city’s contracting boycott of Arizona over that state’s new immigration enforcement law.
On Tuesday, the City Council is scheduled to consider — and appears likely to approve — an exception to the boycott allowing a 10-month extension of a multimillion-dollar agreement with Scottsdale-based American Traffic Solutions.
The firm operates cameras at 32 city intersections that catch tens of thousands of red light violators each year. The council’s Public Safety Committee says the exception is justified because red light cameras provide a “significant benefit to public safety.”

You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies. You have done just the opposite. You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone’s enemy — and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm’s way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world.
You have brought this to a people who have given the world the Ten Commandments and most laws we live by today. The Jewish people have given the world our greatest scientists and philosophers, and the cures for many diseases, and now you play a very dangerous game so you can look like a true martyr to what you see and say are the underdogs. But the underdogs you defend are murderers and criminals who want Israel eradicated.
You have brought to Arizona a civil war, once again defending the criminals and illegals, creating a meltdown for good, loyal, law-abiding citizens. Your destruction of this country may never be remedied, and we may never recover. I pray to God you stop, and I hope the people in this great country realize your agenda is not for the betterment of mankind, but for the betterment of your politics.
With heartfelt and deep concern for America and Israel,
The Washington Times

I had a death in my family and have been gone for a few days. It was expected but still is a huge loss to us all.
I did get to see the gulf coast in Pensacola and all the beach that I saw (admittedly not too much) was still clean and sugar white.
But I’m back now and in news/talk radio/blogger withdrawals and just in time to go back to work. I’ve got lots of reading to catch up on!
