Stand with Israel. Sign the petition.

Keep America Safe:

In the Obama era, many of America’s allies have seen their loyalty to the United States met with indifference, incompetence and even outright contempt. Israel – one of America’s strongest allies anywhere around the world—offers the most vivid example.

Since taking office, Barack Obama and officials in his administration have repeatedly rebuked, condemned, and pressured an Israeli government that is standing strong and defiant in the face of continual threats from terrorist groups and the regimes that sponsor them. The administration has repeatedly sought to engage Israel’s authoritarian enemies while demanding ever more concessions from the democratically elected government in Jerusalem. In just the last month this administration has twice stood by as international organizations have targeted Israel for condemnation. In May the Obama administration consented to a Final Document from the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference that singled out Israel as a threat to the current non-proliferation regime while making no mention of the grave threat posed by Iran’s illegal pursuit of nuclear weapons. And in June the administration refused to block a presidential statement from the United Nations Security Council as Israel was besieged by an international lynch mob for exercising its legitimate right of self-defense.

The relationship between the American and Israeli people is as strong as it has ever been, but this administration’s dangerous and misguided policies, if left unchallenged, pose a serious threat to Israel’s security and prosperity and to America’s ability to protect our interests in the region. We the undersigned urge the President to stand with the people of Israel.”

List of most economically free nations – Pop Quiz: Where are we on the list?

Look at this! Ireland is more economically free than we are! And we are very close to falling out of the top 10. Dare I say that in 2 years we might be #11?

And if TheOne – aka JobKiller –  gets a second term. . . Lord knows where we will be on the list.

So what kind of “summit” will Shirley Sherrod get from TheOne?

(sorry but i keep misspelling her name everywhere.)

In the words of Juan Williams today, “the White House freaked out” over an edited video (posted below on this blog) of Sherrods speech to the NAACP. The NAACP behaved in the same frantic way. I don’t care what anyone says, the WH was behind this whole job termination of Sherrod. She was TheOnes sacrificial lamb.

And then ruh-oh!

They were misimformed!

Actually, we all were. I am guilty of over-reacting and jumping to incorrect assumptions and my apology really means nothing in the scheme of this ladys life. But here it is, all the same.

My question is this:

Does she not deserve the same treatment that Professor Gates got in the Rose Garden after “cops acted stupidly” in Cambridge?

That was another example of TheOne jumping to conclusions and making erroneous assumptions. When I jump to the wrong conclusion (on my blog) it hurts virtually no one because virtually no one reads my blog. But when I do, I try to correct my mistake or apologize for it. When the WH does it – that’s serious business. This is the woman’s entire life, her career, her family who will have to suffer for this. As though she has not suffered enough in her lifetime. . .

You can blame Breitbart (as liberal “journalist” Shep Smith did today) for posting this edited clip but the ultimate responsibility rests with those who decided to REACT to it instead of taking a moment and studying the full context of it.

But isn’t this the total of his whole administration? Reaction instead of studied Proaction?

Yea, Roxanne. I think you’re right. Can I hear an Amen and a Hallelujah on that?!

It just never ends! When will they leave us alone to just LIVE???

Hidden in the million page health care bill is a new tax on precious metals and those who do business in them.

[E]very time a member of the public sells more than $600 worth of gold to a dealer, Piret said, the transaction will have to be reported to the government by the buyer.

More taxes. More paperwork for the buyer and seller to send to the IRS. More expense to the small businessman who deals in coins. Everything this government can do to make life harder and more expensive to the little guy… remember him? The little guy that the leftists say they are trying to protect all the time?

But it’s a Republican who’s trying to repeal this part of the law:

Rep. Daniel Lungren, R-Calif., has introduced legislation to repeal the section of the health care bill that would trigger the new tax reporting requirement because he says it’s a burden on small businesses.

Remember the Republicans? the bad guys who are concerned with no one but the CEOs? Well this Republican is looking out for me and I’m not CEO of anything. I have a small amount of gold that I purchased this year. But large enough that it will require more tax forms and more IRS information.

And we can’t go on with this story without mention that Glenn Beck (as well as Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin) are being investigated for some so-called dirty dealings with Goldline:

The recently revealed investigation by California authorities into consumer complaints against Goldline International, which has used Beck as a pitchman, and Superior Gold Group (which has not) has put a spotlight on what one liberal leaning politician, Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., calls the “unholy alliance” between gold coin sellers, such as Goldline, and conservative talk personalities, such as Beck.

This government will not stop until they run and own and tax every portion and moment of our lives. This abuse of the citizens has to stop! We have to stop this and we have to get these people out of office.  When I read this story from Drudge, my frustration level went from 0-90 in 2 seconds. Did those people who voted for this man have all this in mind when they cast their votes? If it is, then they are in the wrong country. Venezuela has room for them, I’m sure.

I am sick and tired of my rights being abused at every turn by Obama and his marxists followers.

Deconstructing the tactic – Glenn Beck

Com’on – who are real the haters?

Rush Limbaugh from NewsBusters.org

If you were in the presence of a man having a heart attack, how would you respond? As he clutched his chest in desperation and pain, would you call 911? Would you try to save him from dying? Of course you would.

But if that man was Rush Limbaugh, and you were Sarah Spitz, a producer for National Public Radio (update: Spitz was a producer for NPR affiliate KCRW for the show Left, Right & Center), that isn’t what you’d do at all.

In a post to the list-serv Journolist, an online meeting place for liberal journalists, Spitz wrote that she would “Laugh loudly like a maniac and watch his eyes bug out” as Limbaugh writhed in torment.

In boasting that she would gleefully watch a man die in front of her eyes, Spitz seemed to shock even herself. “I never knew I had this much hate in me,” she wrote. “But he deserves it.”

Spitz’s hatred for Limbaugh seems intemperate, even imbalanced. On Journolist, where conservatives are regarded not as opponents but as enemies, it barely raised an eyebrow.

Point me to the conservative bloggers who are posting wishes of horrendous death on fat headed Ed Schultz or other dimwits like him. I know there are some out there, but they are not conservatives – they are assholes.
I will agree that Keith Olbermann gets a lot of grief but none of what I read wishes him to die an ugly death.
It’s just disgusting to read this stuff from people who are supposed to be providing us with unfiltered (as can be possible) information.
Not only has this story from Carlson put the spotlight on unbiased journalists, but it has made us all more disappointed in the 4th Estate and it’s fairness to provide us with information that we need to make informed decisions. Who can you trust? Is it any wonder that so many are turning to the internet and to blogs and bloggers?
The “new media” seems to be the only place to find any semblance of fact. And the big sites (pardon the pun) like Carlson’s and Breitbart’s are being held to a very high standard. The best news is that they seem to be up to that task.
