Reviving the Constitution from Hillsdale College

If like me, you didn’t see this the first time around and you have the time to listen, like I do while I clean house etc, this is definitely worth your time.

I know there’s a lot of mindless tripe on network tv that I refuse to watch and I’m sure there are a lot of you who feel the same way. Reviving the Constitution is a much better use of an hour of my day, than almost anything else I could be doing.

You just can’t ever learn enough. There aren’t enough hours in the day for all that we need to learn. The most educated are the best armed and that is how we prepare for the fight we will soon be facing.

I ask again: Who dresses this woman?

Is it just me or does this boat neck blouse strike anyone else as a poor choice for a visit to an area threatened by the most massive oil  spill (you know, lots of sticky black stuff floating onto the white beach on white waves?)  in our history?

The first thing I thought when I saw these photos of her in Florida was “What was she thinking?” Or does anyone else around her think?


2 more good reasons Gov. Perry should boycott the Governors border meeting


from the WSJ story - Huckabee and Quijas in a Mexican prison.

Mexico is torturing and falsely imprisoning our citizens and our government just doesn’t care. The consulate tells the family of these men (in the WSJ story) that they can’t and won’t do anything to help, although there are claims of torture by the authorities. This would never happen in America. Accusations of torture by prisoners in America, usually end with someone being fired, tried and thrown in jail. (If the victim is a minority, riots also ensue.) These men, in Mexican jail, must feel totally forsaken and hopeless. They can’t even get an attorney who can speak English, for cryin’ out loud!

The American government is so consumed with a law in Arizona that mirrors federal law that they ignore what’s happening to our citizens in Mexico. The bleeding heart left and its government can’t be concerned with the allegations of torture from American citizens who have been arrested and are being tried in Mexico. They are too busy screaming racism in Arizona.

I hope Americans stop going to Mexico. I have friends who go there to purchase medication or for very cheap dental work, others who go there for vacation. This is a dangerous place and our government doesn’t care what happens there. They especially don’t care what happens to our citizens if they are arrested and then tortured.

This government is giving Mexico over $1billion (which we really don’t have) to fight drug cartels. That’s in addition to the over $20billion of  US money a year that legal and illegal workers send home to Mexico. They get plenty of our money.  Americans should not be spending a single dime in that country.

And they seem to get plenty of respect from our politicians, too. Remember this:

A standing OVATION? I am still outraged when I see this.

Until there is a fair judicial and legal system in Mexico (hey! did you see those pigs fly by?) Americans are obligated to avoid business with Mexico. We owe it to our fellow citizens  – Huckabee, Quijas and all others – to stand firm against Mexico.
