Liberty Requires It.

eastern montana

On a road trip out of the northern Rockies, into the high plains of Montana and North Dakota, time provided the opportunity to contemplate my journey on the liberty road.   I have a professional life around water that few have experienced; I have only recently–in the last two years–come to realize what we truly are facing; and now find myself  facing the walls I and others have carefully constructed in my own mind over a lifetime.

The two experiences I would like to share this early morning revolve around ‘the rules’–and our strong sense of obligation to follow them. The first is about my business, the second about the Third Continental Congress, scheduled to have election of new officers on April 11, 2010.


After I had worked for everyone possible in the area of water resource management and development, I decided I would venture out on my own.  I did all the ‘right’ things…got my employment ID number; state identification

Mandan homes, North Dakota

and licenses to do business; and unemployment insurance.  You know, all the official stuff.  My company is an S-corporation, done for more favorable tax purposes.

What I ‘sell’ or offer is what I know applied to the problem at hand–I am a solutions-maker.  I love water and apply that passion, and my background, for my clients’ benefit.  In exchange, they pay me.

Up until I learned about the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve, everything was ‘normal’.  Then I began to think about what  I ‘sell’ in my business, and, in fact it is my labor, my skills that I sell, not a tangible, material item.  (note to self: good thing you don’t lose your brains when you sell their work…or… :shock:)

Taxes on income are unconstitutional so the Supreme Court ruled in 1895. Taxes on a man’s labor and the wages he earns from his work are unconstitutional, in part because they are a direct, non-apportioned tax on people.  The 16th Amendment, which directly contradicted this Supreme Court ruling, was illegally declared ratified by Secretary of State  Philander Knox.

Since 1916, the government has been collecting illegal income taxes. This has been challenged, but what did the 16th Amendment create that now prevents its exposure as fraud?  The judicial system, and judges using our illegally collected tax dollars.  How would any judge vote against his own interest by allowing evidence of illegality into the courtroom?  Why would he advise anyone of their 7th Amendment right to a common law jury?

Our Constitution guaranteed our individual liberty to create, to invent, to be our own business of you will, to sell our skills for hire.  I went out and instead of going directly to work, I ‘detoured’ through a system where I had to get licensed to do what I am at liberty to do!  And a portion of the fruits of all my labor–which I could use to acquire more skills–is diverted to a system that is licensing me to be free.  And that licensing prevents me from advancing, so my net pay is ‘just about enough to fall flat on my face’.

Here I am suffering for my insanity in following an illegal system, and will suffer for my sanity if I refuse to follow  unconstitutional laws.

Liberty requires that I be sane and constitutional in my person, all suffering aside.

The Third Continental Congress

The TCC has learned over the last few months that the Congress, convened in November 2009, is  organizationally somewhere between a “Convention” and a ‘permanent society.”  In the rush to get something done in 11 days, we developed some rules, but not others;  and, at the close of the meeting in St. Charles, agreed to adjourn the meeting sine die (permanently) on October 10, 2011. Thus we are a convention that will have numerous meetings within the one, 2-year session of the Third Continental Congress.

There is much excitement about work in the TCC: enhanced civic actions in collaboration with other organizations; 14th Amendment studies and recommendations, judicial reform, as well as those pesky rules known as ‘bylaws’ that have to be developed.  We will likely meet on-line and try to hold an in person session when possible.  It is too soon to tell what our longer term role is, or other activities undertaken, and the desire is not to siphon off any resources or attention from anyone else.  The TCC is an unincorporated organization.

The conventional parliamentary guidance used is the 10th Edition of Roberts Rules Newly Revised (RONR). It provides guidance for organizations in holding meetings, with an emphasis on protecting the minority.  Much like the original framework of the Constitution, the Delegates or members (i.e, the people) rule.  The TCC can make any rule it desires and it supersedes any rule offered in RONR.

But RONR can only go so far, as it was not designed for a two year convention!  It contemplated a convention of a day, or a few weeks at most, but not two years.  So, we are a ‘young’ convention, with a few rules in place, and the best known parliamentary guidance doesn’t readily apply!  It is useful, but is not wholly sufficient for the TCC.

Good news, right?  We can make our own rules!  🙂

**WHACK**  we’ve run right into the Walls in Our Minds. 😕

When there are no rules to go by, and you have the ability to write them yourselves, i.e., create the script, what happens?  Several reactions can take over.  While the underlying issue may be fear of the unknown, or even fear of one’s own power, we can cling to old rules and try to create order out of nothing; we can see the opportunity and craft a careful way forward, daring to create the rules as we go along, with all caution and respect to existing guidance; we can argue over who is right by focusing on words or phrases.

Think about this…if you have been in a box following rules you thought were valid your whole life, what happens when that box is removed?  Can we handle liberty?

How did the Founders write the Constitution without permission or a rule book?

It is of profound concern the extent to which we can be buried in false entanglements, emotions, or misdirected anger,  not recognizing freedom when its right in front of us.   Yet, Liberty requires that we move forward no matter what, and embrace the awesome responsibilities of freedom.

“It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

Be the one in the ring, with all the grace, passion, and humility that comes with the territory.

    I had this thought pop in to my head last night, and it just won’t leave…

    The reason why Obama was born in Kenya, is because this is his mother

    Ruth. She won’t talk about anything.

    And Obama’s brother in China, Mark…

    he’s evidently bi

    and though more ragged around the edges, he looks strikingly like Obama

    he looks OLDER than Obama however
    I know Ruth is mentioned extensively in Obama’s books, and I think the issue may be quite simple, that Obama is another of Ruth’s sons…

    • 3 terminu April 7, 2010 at 7:05 am

      Ruth refuses to give her age in all articles, but she looks in her 70’s.
      and Mark won’t give his age either…
      ‘Intensely private, (Mark) Ndesandjo declined to answer several questions about himself. He even refused to give his age, saying only that “I’m younger than Barack.”‘
      If you’re younger, you don’t refuse to give your age…
      His neck ligaments stick out like an old man, he’s definitely older than akaBHO. Obama looks nothing like Maya Ng.

    • 4 Miri April 7, 2010 at 10:46 am

      Interesting theory. He does resemble Ruth, who oddly enough resembles Stanley Dunham (the alleged grandfather) and John Kerry. Obama looks like both Mark and brother George, imho. I keep remembering how Stanley Ann told high-school friends that she didn’t need to marry to have kids; she could adopt. So was BHO Sr. simply the means and the courier?

    You’re at least partly on the right track Dr. Kate. Some years ago I was with an IT consultancy team working in Stockholm. We were the kind of consultants who didn’t mind a bit of dirt under our fingernails and were paid to deliver solutions.

    One night, sitting around in our hotel bar, the conversation turned to the future. We could see the trend for buying IT as a managed service growing and that meant fewer private corporate data networks, less of our kind of consultancy. We started to think about how we might in future continue to live in the opulent style to which we were accustomed.

    One of the guys said, “Really the only way to get rich in future will be to sell something that does not exist. Everything of substance is bound up by so many rules and regulations nobody other than the lawyers and accountants can make real money from it.

    He was right of course, that is exactly the way things have gone in the last fifteen years.

    So your business sells something intangible, well done for that. I do feel though the world needs to move back towards a system based on real solid stuff, the work of people who grow things or use tools.

    D. H Lawrence said, before WW2 I think, “Humankind needs to get back in touch with the rhythms of the Uninverse.”

    AMERICA! My country, and I will not surrender to the commie’s that are doing everything they can to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM America. We will not let them–we will all stand firm and tall and we WILL take her back.

    We must stop the destruction that is being shoved down our throats.

    The more he does to degrade and destroy the more WE THE PEOPLE grab the other end and pull back upward where we belong.

    I guess they are so afraid of us, they are trying to destroy us as quickly as they can but we are not stopping–we are tugging and struggling to stay afloat and lift America back up.

    Be on guard for more destruction and plans and games, we must stay ahead of them, we must not give in or America will be gone forever.

    I’m not so sure that we can hold on until Nov elections. I thank every American that does not stray away from our Constitution and those that are on our side. I do believe there is more of us than them and this is their fear. This is why they must give amnesty to illegal aliens. Even so, the illegals are catching on to them and know what is coming towards them as well. Nothing in America is free for the taking—America is the land of opportunity and everyone has the opportunity to be all they can be.

    I believe the freedom loving people around the world are weeping for us, for without us, there isn’t any of them.

    • 15 tdr April 7, 2010 at 9:15 pm

      heather, i wish i could agree with you but i think the total opposite is true. i believe this has been in the works for years and everything is according to plan. we can scream until our guts come out, they have nothing to fear. do you see anyone doing anything that’s threatening? i dont. do you see a republican all that flipped out about what is happening? i dont. they seem mechanical in their objections. i hate to even make this statement but i believe only a military coup could stop this.

      i dont watch the news anymore. i see everything as controlled opposition. still trying to make you believe elections matter. i dont believe it anymore. even the election of the republicans can not undo this damage, and now i belive its intentional. there is alot of money in the coffers, too much to lose. did it not seem as if mccain threw the election? it did to me. i see major progressive jumps with limited repeal and a total move on both sides to a complete repeal of personal freedom. total control with evey once in awhile a bone that they throw to you to keep you happy. its time to stop talking about the constitution, they’re laughing in washington right now.

      watch this video, if we can ask these questions then elect guys like this.

    You’r pretty much on target with the income tax being uncnbstitutional.

    This country did not have an income tax until Abe Lincoln’ administration imposed one in the 1860s due to the expenses of the War of Succession. In fact, I have a copy of the tax form used for that tax and as you mention, it was very shortly declared to be unconstitutional by SCOTUS (more than once as I recall) and remained so until William Howard Taft (a “good” Republican President who later served in SCOTUIS) made what he thought was a clever deal with the Democratic party – the result of which in 1913 gave us the income tax we know and love ever since … and it is still unconstitutional regardless of the validity or not of ther 16th amendment.

    Direct taxation is not permitted by the Constitution but – like so many other things Constitutional – the politicians do all sorts of nip-ups and gyrations to explain how it is not “direct” (which it clearly is) and ram it through the courts since few understand and/or oppose it.

    An income tax gives the government great control over the citizens as many of us have seen being on the receiving end of such beneficience. The only things worse would be to add on top of it, as Paul Volker has proposed, is a VAT (Valuer Added Tax) or to pass the (so-called) “flat tax” which is merely another form of income tax over which the citizens have no recourse. All three of these forms of taxes machinations have the “neat” (from the government’s point of view) technique of hiding taxes into the prices of things as they pass from business to business in the lines of production and distribution thereby boosting and cascading the cost of tax into the final prices of things people buy – and obscure the amount and effects of such tax … a very nice socialistic mathod which is no doubt what VATs are so popular in the Euro countries.

    From the standpoint of those of us in “non-government” the indirect form of taxation such as the FairTax is by far the better tax form and when combined with a repeal of the 16th amendment, allows us to be rid of such governmental control via taxation. You should go to the FairTax website and see a really superior form of taxation. With the was the FairTax bill (now in Congress) is written we needn’t wait for the 16th repeal to take effect as the bill protects us from income taxation – but the repeal should be done so that the pols aren’t able to decide – as Taft did – that it would be a “good thing” … IT ISN’T!!

    For my own view I’d rather see a movement to Re-Assert the Constitution rather than opening up the basis of that document to all and sundry (especially those ultra-leftists we see today that are rampant in both our government and ouir society). Giving them even the slightest possibility of modifying the Constitution by opening it up for grabe is not something that I think is wise. There are far too many who would hope to – and would avidly work to – trash any such effort.

    I think our original Constitution is actually quite sound and overall is a remarkable document that is unlikely to be improved upon by allowing full-scale assault fromn the left. Re-Asserting its validity and effectiveness (along with, perhaps, impeaching some number of Federal and possibly other judges) plus promopting the idea of “Re-Elect Nobody” along with some term limits so that the pols cannot remain at the trough continually.

    I believe the founders envisioned the idea of those in Congress being there a relatively short time and then returning “home” to become attuned with the desires of “thge people”. I certainly do not think that the founders wished to see (or even in their wildest dreams hoped for) an oligarchy such as we have today.

    Things need to be changed – and dramatically so – but I think it can be achieved without huge internal dangers or disruptions. The power needs to be drained from the political class in case you haven’t noticed since they almost without exception really don’t give a damn about “the people”.

    We are examples. Taiwanese protestors surrounded thier parliament for days protesting their usurpation done in 2006. China, and other places are revolting. This is a new age. Everything happens for a reason and I can’t wait to see what good comes out of all this. I do know that Oconman cannot shuck and jive the BC issue forever.
    He’s pissing everyone off including world leaders. Hillary has to fix everything he messes. Like being on a treadmill. Karzai, whom they helped usurp the election doesn’t want anything to do with Hillary and Oconman anymore. They are cancelling the whitehouse visit. Well isn’t that nice. This is a taste of what’s to come.
    Turkey ordered Oconman to get the underground nuclear weapons off thier land. Lots going on. Oconman runs to everyone else to do his job because he IS INADEQUATE! This November, groups and groups of people need to take their video camera’s to every precinct and record the attempted theft of the elections by Oconman and his cronies. Only a landslide will fend these creeps off.

    Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma says he disapproved obamas weapon treaty with Russia. Rather than him being over there signing this illegal treaty (protect, defend and preserve)and then giving it to the Senate it should be the other way around. The Senate should vote first prior to wasting our money traveling. This is backwards.

    Not only the vat tax but all of these taxes. We have double and triple taxation on all utilities–look at your bills–cell phone too.

    Enough is enough and its time for them to go—-to prison.

  19. 26 No-nonsense-nancy April 8, 2010 at 6:45 am

    I agree, they all need to go to prison. I heard someone on a blog talk Patriots Heart radio show the other day talking about a tax he calls a “fair tax”. He wrote a book. It would replace federal income tax and do away with the IRS.I can’t remember his name off hand. It sounded good to me.

  20. 27 heather April 8, 2010 at 8:41 am


    That would be Neal Boortz a conservative talk show host. He wrote that book 3 years ago with John Linder a congressman and Rob Woodall. I have read it and it is a fair tax – never to increase our taxes and eliminate all other taxes. It is NOT the same as the flat tax it is better. They hired some huge tax company to design the tax system. I have the book. You should get it and read it.

    The vat tax can hide their extortion money inside it just like all these Tarp and stimulis bills. No one has kept count of where all the money went and yesterday Rush said the auto unions pensions are 16billion short—and that money came directly from the Tarp money–so who’s pocket is it in? This is what would happen with that VAT tax–theft……..The fair tax cannot hide anything.

    the fair tax would eliminate the all federal taxes and the IRS and that alone would be great–this fair tax is basically a consumption tax based on what we buy only and I think (if I remember right)it would not go beyond 12.5% of anything! Awesome.

  21. 28 Rosemary Woodhouse April 8, 2010 at 8:53 am

    I disagree re: Fair Tax. The only FAIR tax is a flat tax. As with anything politicians get their hands on, too much is open to interpretation. Who gets to decide what’s fair? And what is “fair” would remain ever in flux depending on who’s “in charge” at any given time.

    Again, Flat Taxation is the only fair taxation!

    • 29 jtx April 8, 2010 at 5:33 pm

      Rosemary Woodhouse:

      You seem to completely miss the point that the so-called “flat tax” (and there are actually many different definitions of it) is neither flat nor anything different from an income tax.

      That’s the problem … it is still a direct tax on citizens which is not constitutional and unlike the FairTax (which has only a single definition in the bill before Congress now) it can be as easily manipulated as is now done with our “beloved” income tax. For example of the many political manipulations in any such direct tax – what is “income”; how is depreciation calculated (and on what sorts of things); and on and on endlessly with definition (subject to Congressional whim endlessly) after definition which of course creates a massive, never-ending and ever-morphing set of “tax codes” which are themselves not understood completely by anyone and which are used by many of the little Hitler wannabes in the IRS to pushish otherwise innocent Americans.

      A few years ago in a Republican administration the President instituted a panel of “experts” to study and advise what should be done about taxes. One thing that was unintentionally done was to allow “the public” to make written comments in response to the hearings. While you might guess that the panel decision was, unsurprisingly, the present tax structure just “tweaked” a bit, the comments on record ON THE GOVERNMENT WEBSITE had more than 75% of the great unwashed (that’s us) naming the FairTax as by far the preferred tax system.

      The panel, of course, ignored We The People as they and the political oligarcy do more and more and offered the typically bland “tweaking report” with a slight suggestion that perhaps a flat tax might be a (far distant) possibility. All of this never once admitting that even a “flat tax” (however defined) still was merely an income tax and suffered from all of the ills of that sort of tax that we know and love.

      No – any flat tax is no improvement (and surely would not stay that way long) whilke the FairTax is much more concretely defined, less expensive to implement and actually would put control of tax revenues back into the hands of citizens rathey than those wallowing at the political trough enriching themselves. It would also bring with it a much-needed Constitutional Amendment to prevent the direct taxation such as income tax for the future. After all, before Lincoln (and then again after he got his income tax) any income tax was known to be unconstitutional. Taft, the CEO of the US early in the 20th century as a “good” Republican did us in in 1913 and certainly Wilson and all the other far lefties that followed were willing to keep up the money stream and populace control that indirect taxation offers.

      After all, Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto had a progressive income tax as plank #2 in that document. You might enjoy reading this enlightening speech given in 1946 by Beardsley Ruml – the man who offered FDR the “wonderful” solution of tax withholding from our paychecks (and keep in mind the speech was in 1946):

  22. 30 heather April 8, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Well I do agree with your analogy of what is “fair” but there are certain things in the fair tax that are better than the flat tax but if I had my druthers I would NOT PAY ANY TAX!

  23. 31 heather April 8, 2010 at 11:40 am

    Please – everyone on your toes. America is crushed. Rush is calling for the democrats to stop Obama now. He is deliberately bankrupting us and the icing on the cake is the disarming of America.

    Ok the dems now are saying they are going to run in November as GWB did — CHANGE! More change? Get these criminals out of our WH now! Don’t allow them to run ever again they can never be trusted again.

    The dems did exactly what obama wanted to do and is continuing to do so all the while they knew he was a usurper and destroying America and they want Change? And they want votes? Are they totally nuts? Trust them? They do not deserve a handshake!

    They all deserve prison for what they have done to us!

    Yeah let them all run in November on “change”. That’ll be fine and dandy with me because most Americans are fed up with this change shit.
    The only thing they need to change is no jobs to JOBS. So let them try that even. If they could accomplish that change it would have been done already. People are sick of these serial liars. No one will believe them. I do not believe that Patty Murray or witch pelousesky were ever threatened. It’s all made up shit because Murray is losing big time and pelousesky is hated by everyone and needs sympathy.

    New CBO #s saying that the healthcare bill numbers were wrong that congress gave them and that it will exceed 2tril dollars and will be unsustainable.

    Bernanki is calling for higher taxes or decrease in social security/medicare and medicaid.

    Where were these people when obama was crushing us and why all of a sudden are they finally coming out with this—is it because they are terrorizing us again for more higher taxes? Is this Paul Vokler’s way of bringing in the VAT tax? OMG these criminals are criminals and are terrorists in my book.

    They all knew this debt was unsustainable when the first TARP came out.

    WELL WELL. It’s been asked here recently what could they be up to next. It’s gotten awfully quiet with them. So, I came upon this letter from Steve Forbes. Have a look at what they are up to. God help us.
    Dear Concerned American:

    “I owe these unions.”

    President Barack Obama couldn’t have stated it any more clearly.

    And after spending a cool BILLION dollars to put their political cronies in positions of power in Washington, D.C., the union bosses couldn’t agree more.

    They want PAYBACK.

    After all, Barack Obama and the rest of Big Labor’s allies have already promised, “What Big Labor wants, Big Labor GETS!”

    That’s why it’s vital you sign the survey below putting yourself squarely on record OPPOSED to the union bosses’ Card Check Forced Unionism Bill — and the rest of Big Labor’s agenda — IMMEDIATELY.

    You see, you and I may not have much time.

    Now that Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat has flipped and the union bosses see their massive union-label majorities slipping away, they are pushing harder than ever to pass the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill before the 2010 elections.

    That’s why it’s vital you act today!

    As you know, if “Card Check” passes, workers would no longer be able to vote for or against union boss “representation” in a secret ballot election.

    Instead, the union bosses would intimidate workers one-on-one — or three-on-one — into signing so-called “union authorization cards.”

    And, of course, Big Labor has yet another ticking time bomb hidden in the “Card Check” legislation.

    If the union bosses can drag out negotiations with an employer past 90 days by making outrageous demands, Obama Administration bureaucrats will have the power to use this so-called “problem” as an excuse to write a new labor contract and force its terms and conditions of employment upon those workers.

    So you see, not only does Big Labor want to strip workers of the right to a secret ballot but also of the right to vote on their own contracts as well!

    That’s why your immediate help is so vital.

    You see, Big Labor has another trick up its sleeve to make doubly sure “Card Check” is rammed into law.

    And that’s a “Trojan Horse” version of the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill that’s supposedly harmless if you believe the laughable stories coming from Big Labor’s mouthpieces in the national media.

    But don’t be fooled.

    The “Trojan Horse” version is every bit as damaging to American workers, jobs and our fragile economy.

    Plain and simple, this is nothing more than a ploy by Big Labor to trick fence-riding Senators into caving in and jumping on board.

    In fact, quoted in the People’s Weekly World — an overtly COMMUNIST publication — the AFL-CIO’s Director of Legislation said there would be NO CHANGES “that would undermine the basic thrust of the bill.”

    That’s why it’s important that you sign this survey IMMEDIATELY.

    Should “Card Check” pass, this dangerous power grab would:
    ***Force millions of additional working Americans to pay union dues under the threat of losing their jobs, filling Big Labor coffers with hundreds of millions of forced-dues dollars;

    ***Dramatically increase the wasteful work rules, hate-the-boss propaganda, slowdowns and bitter strikes that shut down businesses and destroy jobs, ensuring that even more plants are closed and more jobs are shipped overseas or lost forever;

    ***Enable Big Labor to pump even more campaign cash into the coffers of its radical, tax and spend politicians like Barack Obama who, in turn, will look for even greater ways to increase the union bosses’ forced-dues empire.

    That’s why I’m counting on your help IMMEDIATELY.

    You see, a Capitol Hill aide was quoted recently admitting that Harry Reid is planning to move “Card Check” to the floor and get it passed before anyone can mobilize against it.

    So we can’t wait. We have to mobilize NOW.

    The good news is the National Right to Work Foundation has developed a massive plan to spread the word about Card Check and the rest of Big Labor’s schemes.

    Educational programs. Grassroots mail. Newspaper, radio, and TV ads.

    The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation will use your survey to prove to the media and the politicians that Big Labor’s powergrab is bad policy and very politics.

    But the Foundation will do so much more than just put politicians and the media on notice with your survey.

    The Foundation will alert the American people of the dangers of Card Check and Big Labor’s power grab through a co-ordinated email, mail, phone, radio and even TV campaign.

    National press conferences will be held showing workers in danger of being herded into Big Labor’s corral and the American people fighting for their workplace freedom.

    You and I and the Foundation together can rally support to defeat “Card Check” and prevent the expansion of Big Labor’s power.

    But that’s all VERY expensive — especially since everything is “last minute.”

    That’s why it’s vital you act TODAY!

    And that’s why, in addition to your signed survey, I hope you’ll agree to make a generous tax-deductible contribution to help stop the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

    After signing your survey, please make a generous tax-deductible contribution to the Foundation of $100, $50, $25 or even just $10.

    This is not a battle you and I can afford to lose.

    I’m convinced that with the Foundation’s plan to educate Americans about the dangers of Card Check, you and I can stop Big Labor’s agenda in its tracks.

    But we don’t have much time.

    Please sign this survey and make a generous tax-deductible contribution of $100, $50 or $25 to help defeat Big Labor’s Card Check Forced Unionism Bill.

    And if that is too much, please consider chipping in with a donation of just $10. No matter the amount, every donation will go a long ways toward defeating Card Check.

    Please, it’s vital you act TODAY!


    Steve Forbes

    P.S. With their hand-picked majorities quickly losing popularity in Congress, the union bosses are moving fast to pass the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill before the 2010 elections.

    That’s why there’s not a moment to waste!

    Please sign this survey demanding your Congressman and Senators OPPOSE Big Labor’s Card Check Forced Unionism Bill before it’s too late.

    After signing your survey, please also make a generous tax-deductible contribution of $100, $50, $25 or even just $10 to the National Right to Work Foundation — IMMEDIATELY!

    Here’s one question: If the Republicans are truly Americans first, why hasn’t one of them had the patriotism and loyalty to our Constitution to introduce Articles of Impeachment? Not one of them has? It’s astounding!

    • 40 drkate April 8, 2010 at 5:25 pm

      Agreed. They whine they don’t have the majority, and that betrays their cowardice. Stand UP!!!

  31. 41 Rosemary Woodhouse April 8, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Not one of them has- exclamation, not question mark.

    The dems have too much against themselves for hooking up with the liar and chief. All the trillions of dollars unaccounted for, gm pension shortage 16 billion dollars from the tarp and stimulis, banks closing and other banks not lending, fannie and freddie on the verge of bankruptcy, student loan take over, taxes out of control and talk of higher with the vat tax. healthcare that the american people do not want with massive spending and criminal new laws hidden inside, sicing the irs on us for the hc, calling all of us nazi’s, extremists, violating our constitution and their personal oaths they took, lies, lies and more lies.

    These are just a few of his terrorizing of the american people. Paul Volker saying yesterday that they need the VAT tx, hence today the CBO saying they never saw all of the numbers for the hc bill which is now unsustainable, and Bernanki coming out today with we will either raise taxes or cut medicare and social security. I would say that this is terrorizing all of us. Death panels in the bill.

    No I don’t think the dems will win at all in Nov.

    And I do not think that Pelosi or her sidekick had threats, I too believe they were all made up like the spitting tea partier in DC–yeah right we all saw the same video!

    I am sick of seeing him on tv and hearing him on the radio every single day of the week. Commercials, ads, his freakn face and teleprompter are everywhere. Where in the constitution does it say he can spend out money like this? No where………they are nothing but communists scamming the people out of their personal wealth and the bankrupting the country.

    And congress is allowing this to happen. Not one of them is stepping forward to even stand on their oaths. Time for a total regime change asap!

    Looks like Sarah Palins getting to the usurper–Palin said on hannity last night that the usurper made a huge mistake taking out the nukes and the treaty with Russia. the usurper said during an interview, that Palin is no expert on nukes and he will take the advice of his crew! Guess the usurper is starting to get really mad!!! lol hahaha–Palin and Bachmann just blew him away last night on Hannity and he can’t take criticism! too funny!

    I also suppose the truth hurts to be heard and spread around the world! Too bad usurper, you asked for it and man you are going to get it from all ends!

  36. 48 heather April 8, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    We now have both usurper husband and wife going on American Idol!

    Another night of not seeing TV..Why aren’t they in the WH creating jobs?

  37. 49 terminu April 8, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    The Dems don’t even deny he’s ineligible, a while back talking to Pelosi’s rep they were defiant and abusive and confrontative but certainly not defending him being eligible any longer.

    They got away with it and they don’t care that it’s out in the open, this is the attitude which I’m hearing more about from others too.

    Now what?

      From Craigslist world politics blog:

      ” what cons don’t get regarding obama and kenya… 04/08 15:38:29
      OF COURSE obama was born in kenya.

      that’s pretty f*cking obvious.

      but, we just don’t care.

      in fact, i think it’s AWESOME that he was born in kenya, and that the GOP got their asses kicked by a guy who isn’t even eligible to be president!
      and the fact that it was all made possible by a grassroots organization that helps poor black people makes it 10000xs better!
      i still can’t believe you let acorn steal the election from you!
      how pathetic can you guys get???

      stop trying to prove to us that obama was born in kenya.
      we aren’t idiots. we know he was born in kenya”

    The latest news from Pravda. This one is worth framing. Send it viral.
    American Capitalism Gone With (only) A Whimper (by Stanislav Mishin – April 2009)

    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

    True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

    Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

    First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

    Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized inAmerica.

    The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just inAmerica’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not,Americaat best will resemble theWeimarRepublicand at worstZimbabwe.

    These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more than ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

    These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

    Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

    So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less than two months ago, warned Obama andUK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

    Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “free man” whimper.

    So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

    The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
    Stanislav Mishin

    The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

    Here is a link to SNOPES to verify that this is a real article.

      Like the article, but Snopes is filled with pro-Obama bogosity, it’s run by two ardent libbies who have no background in investigative journalism at all and who allow no challenges to their proclamations.
