March against tyranny and for our Veterans …
March with our veterans and the heroes that have made America free on Sunday, October 13, 2013 in Washington, DC. The Million Vet March is going to take place t 9:00 a.m. at the World War II Memorial. Who has been disgusted by the actions of Barack Obama and our government in closing down open air memorials that are normally open 24-7 like the WWII Memorial to Our Greatest Generation? Who does this? What kind of reprehensible, uncaring, malicious government actually closes an open air monument and prevents aged vets from seeing the memorial that honors them and their fallen soldiers?
What kind of a government does this to inflict pain on the people to win political points? How exactly does Barack Obama square these actions with laying a wreath at The Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery on Veteran’s Day?
Go to VET MARCH.com for all the details.
I want you to circle the date of Sunday, October 13, 2013.
And then I want you to help “circle the wagons” on that day to help protect and defend our brave veterans who risked their lives for our freedom – and now are being barred from visiting the memorials erected to honor their deeds.
In a mean-spirited fit of selfish anger, Barack Obama has shut down our nation’s war memorials. And he has declared open war on our honored veterans!
The World War II memorial … the Vietnam Veterans Memorial … the Korean War Veterans Memorial – Obama has shut them all down to force his will on the House of Representatives and frankly, to get revenge on the American people who oppose Obamacare and his other naked power grabs.
Let’s put it plainly: Barack Obama is behaving like a vicious tyrant. And if he succeeds in this assault on the democratic system, the Republic we love is at mortal risk. It’s just that simple.
That’s why I am asking you now to take two decisive moves to show Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi – and all of their oppressive ilk in Washington – that “We the People” are still in charge. And we won’t rest until we take back our memorials and monuments!
Mark Levin to Barack Obama Says You Lay One Damn Hand on WW2 Vets and I’LL BRING HALF A MILLION PEOPLE TO THAT DAMN MEMORIAL!
Imagine if People actually voted the way they felt rather than just for a party … With the record levels of American dissatisfaction with the current government, there is no reason why all incumbent politicians should not be primary challenged.
Can things get much worse for incumbent politicians? A recent Gallup poll has Americans at an all time low for government satisfaction as it drops to 18%. You have to try to get numbers this low. Across parties, Republicans have a 8% satisfaction rate, down 3%, Independents have a 15% satisfaction rate, down 11%, and Democrats have a 28% rate, down a whopping 26%. Of course I am trying to figure out who is the 18% who actually is satisfied with our government?
Eighteen percent of Americans are satisfied with the way the nation is being governed, down 14 percentage points from the 32% recorded last month before the partial government shutdown began. This is the lowest government satisfaction rating in Gallup’s history of asking the question dating back to 1971.
The real question that needs to be asked is whether this will affect the 2014 and 2016 elections and if incumbent politicians should be extremely concerned.
This Gallup poll is right in line with the recent NBC/WSJ Poll, where 60% of Americans Say That Every Member of Congress Should Be Fired.

Americans say a pox on both their houses … America, you voted these people in office, if you really feel this way, then vote then out!!!
According to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, 60% of Americans say that every member of Congress, including their own representatives, should be thrown out of office. This is a little different from polls from the past where participants had wanted to keep their own representative, while tossing the rest to the curb. However, in today’s political environment … the people seem to be fed up with the lot of them. Americans want leaders and statesmen, not political machines that are more concerned with their power than the people.
Throw the bums out.
That’s the message 60 percent of Americans are sending to Washington in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, saying if they had the chance to vote to defeat and replace every single member of Congress, including their own representative, they would. Just 35 percent say they would not.
The 60 percent figure is the highest-ever in that question recorded in the poll, registered in the wake of the government shutdown and threat of the U.S. defaulting on its debt for the first time in history. If the nation’s debt limit is not increased one week from now, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew warns that the entire global economy could be in peril.
The full poll can be read HERE.
On a personal note, I would probably toss about 90 to 95% of Congress out of office and include the executive branch to that as well. America needs leaders, people who can do right by the country, not politicians who just want to stay in power at all cost, buy votes and pander to individuals creating division in a divide and conquer strategy. We need a reformed tax system that has all Americans who have skin in the game, not just 50% of the people. We need term limits, we need a Government that has to abide by the same laws that they pass for “We the People” and we need more than anything a Government that is reminded that they work for us … It is supposed to be a government of, by and for the people.
UPDATE I: Americans find little to like in Washington.
Americans are finding little they like about President Barack Obama or either political party, according to a new poll that suggests the possibility of a “throw the bums out” mentality in next year’s midterm elections.
The AP-GfK poll finds few people approve of the way the president is handling most major issues and most people say he’s not decisive, strong, honest, reasonable or inspiring.
In the midst of the government shutdown and Washington gridlock, the president is faring much better than his party, with large majorities of those surveyed finding little positive to say about Democrats. The negatives are even higher for the Republicans across the board, with 4 out of 5 people describing the GOP as unlikeable and dishonest and not compassionate, refreshing, inspiring or innovative.
Negativity historically hurts the party in power – particularly when it occurs in the second term of a presidency – but this round seems to be hitting everyone. More people now say they see bigger differences between the two parties than before Obama was elected, yet few like what either side is offering. A big unknown: possible fallout from the unresolved budget battle in Washington.
In the end it is the American people who have the vote that determines whether all the bums should be thrown out of office. If this is how you truly believe, THEN JUST DO IT!!!
Happy Independence Day 2013 … Happy Birthday America … JULY 4, 2013 … “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA … HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
Happy Birthday America, to what is still the greatest nation on Earth, the Home of the Free and the Land of the Brave. However, that being said, I can say that never in my lifetime has it been more the responsibility of Our generation, to maintain the freedoms and liberties that our Founding Fathers bestowed on us with their sacrifices. Never in out countries history how our liberties and freedoms been under such attack and it is not from any foreign power, it is from our own government. While you are celebrating July 4th today with family, friends and fireworks, remember that independence, liberty and freedom is not free. It comes at a cost. Those that volunteer to military service do their part; however, American citizens also need to do theirs.
God Bless the USA – Lee Greenwood
If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.
And I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
Our government is supposed to be of, by and for the People, and deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Thus, you are responsible for those that are elected and not elected. It is time for “We the People” to have the courage of those back in 1776 and make our government responsible to the people again. Enough is enough. I do not care what party affiliation you are, no one should be for the erosion of liberties that were provided to the people at the excuses and lies of politicians. Our government is supposed to work for us, not against us. A United States government is not supposed to be spying on innocent Americans and shredding the Constitution. Our government is not supposed to be continually passing ridiculous laws and regulations that restrict Americans from life, liberty in and the pursuit of happiness. A government is not supposed to allow an entity like the IRS to target a segment of its citizenship to treat as an enemy to benefit one political party, no matter what party is in office. Our government should never usurp the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution and treat “freedom of the press” as if it did not exist. Our government should never be allowed to pass into law with only one party vote, the take over of 1/6th of the US economy in healthcare and call it not a tax when passing it off to the American people, then calling it a tax when arguing it before the Supreme Court, only to have a corrupt SCOTUS by the lie. Finally, a government should be of, by and for the people. If it is not, we are in trouble. Brave Americans realized this in 1776 and did something about it, what we have become today is hardly what they envisions and is actually pretty much everything they fought against. What will We the People do today?
The Declaration of Independence: IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. (read the rest HERE)
Let us just remind all, especially those politicians in office, this country fought a War of Independence, not to become dependent on government and have those very freedoms that were so gallantly fought for taken away.
In 1776 “WE THE PEOPLE” fought a War for Independence and against a tyrannical government. Men fought and died to throw off a tyrannical government and sought to put one in place that was of, by and for the American people. I would dare say that our Founding Fathers would cringe to see what their brave efforts have been transformed into today. Never forget America, whether it be with a musket in 1776 or a vote in present day, it is your responsibility to uphold the following words from the Declaration of Independence signed this day in 1776 … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government … But when a long train of abuses and usurpation’s, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government …” America, do not ever let your voice be silenced and it is your God given right to uphold the values, virtues and liberties that were fought for you 236 years ago. America is worth fighting for, and it is your responsibility to do so.
For those who think or try to weaken America and think they can take advantage of what is perceived as a current weak administration, America is much, much more than our government and elected politicians, even though they seemed to have forgotten that fact. American is ‘WE THE PEOPLE” and do not ever forget that. To those who would try and bring us down, Toby Keith sings it best … Courtesy of the red white and blue!!! Happy Birthday America!!!

Now this nation that I love
Has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in
From somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the 4th of July
Justice will be served
And the battle will rage
This big dog will fight
When you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
`Cause we`ll put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way
Hey Uncle Sam
Put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty
Started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly
Man, it’s gonna be hell
When you hear Mother Freedom
Start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you

Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder Sign “Thank You” Card to IRS for Targeting Conservative and Tea Party Groups
What happened to my country?
It is actually frightening that the following occurred in the United States and on a college campus to boot. Individuals actually signed a “Thank You” card to the IRS, thanking them fare targeting, harassing and slow walking the non-profit applications of Conservative and Tea Party groups. This was the brain child of Conservative pundit Caleb Bonham who said, “I was kind of hoping people would look at my card and laugh, but not endorse it.” “That was not the case.” One student said while signing the card, “I love discrimination.” WTF!!! Seriously, would this individuals
like love discrimination if they were the ones targeted? Oh, that would be different of course. And who in the hell loves discrimination of any kind? So let’s get this straight, those who signed and agreed with this thank you card agree that Big Government should have the power to destroy anyone who does not agree with them? Is that what this ignoramuses actually think? Of course not because they think they should be afforded a double standard. Maybe the next question should have been if they had ever heard of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights?
Students at the University of Colorado – Boulder (UCB) signed an enormous thank you card to the Internal Revenue Service for its apparent harassment of conservative groups during the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection.
In the viral video, posted on YouTube Tuesday, conservative pundit Caleb Bonham asked students to sign the large card that read “Thank you IRS! Tea Party Deserves it!”
“I’m asking people if they want to sign my board thanking the IRS for targeting conservative tea party and religious organizations,” Bonham explained in the video.
Sadly, this is a result of the brainwashing that today’s youth has received and a completely hateful attitude and disrespect of others. Some how they are to be afforded the rights of “Freedom of Speech” but others are not. BTW, for all those who signed the ‘Thank You” card to the IRS … thanks for your names so that when the GOP is back in power, they can have the IRS target you. According to you, its perfectly AOK.
BTW II: How are those job prospects for all of you so-intelligent college grads these days?
Benghazi-gate: Names of Benghazi Whistle-Blower Witnesses Revealed … Mark Thompson, Gregory Hicks and Eric Nordstrum
BENGHAZI-GATE … The Whistle-Blowers Edition:
As reported by FOX News, the names of the three “whistle-blowers” who will testify next Wednesday at a Congressional Committee on the Benghazi massacre are Mark Thompson, Gregory Hicks and Eric Nordstrum. White House spokesperson Jay Carney may think that Benghazi happened a long time ago; however, these “whistle-blowers” are about to make the Benghazi White House cover up a very current problem. From the Blaze comes the following people who will be testifying; Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the September assault; Mark Thompson, former Marine and deputy coordinator for operations at the State Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, the former top security officer in Libya. Nordstrum also testified in front of the House Oversight committee back in October (VIDEO), saying staff at the US consulate in Benghazi lacked sufficient protection; however, Thompson and Hicks have yet to speak publically.
Think about this in its totality. The PJ Tatler brings up a very interesting point. How damning do you think these individuals testimony is if the White House was willing to threaten them with the end of their careers if they testified, you can be sure they will have something interesting to add to what we know about the attack. A terror attack blamed on a video tape by the Obama Administration where four Americans were murdered as no one came to their aid.
Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.
Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks.
Rep. Issa: GOP Oversight May 8th Benghazi hearing will be streamed live at http://Oversight.House.Gov at 11:30 here
Last week, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) promised “explosive” Benghazi hearings were coming and said, “direct testimony by eyewitnesses is always the most compelling.” There has been much talk between the House Republicans and the Obama White House that these three men and other have been prevented by the White House to tell their stories of their knowledge of what occurred that night. Many that were there fear of retaliation of losing their job if they testify. This could have devastating effects on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s future run for President.
These individuals are true patriots for coming forward and setting America straight on what happened, even though the Obama White House and their propaganda machine, the MSM, will do everything in their power to slander them, call them liars and undermine their credibility. As the Jawa Report opines, Most likely leftist and Bronco Bama’s MFM are working hard to destroy the credibility of these patriots before the hearing even starts.
“What difference does it make”? ~ Hillary Rodham Clinton

We Need an IQ Test for Politicians … Don’t Forget Back Ground Checks, How About Lie Detector Tests as Well?
Instapundit wants IQ Test for politicians … sounds like a good start; however, I say they take a lie detector test as well!!!
Glenn Harlan Reynolds, better known to the blogosphere as the Instapundit, writes in the NY Post … I think that what we really need are IQ tests for political officeholders. Amen Brother! Reynold’s points to the recent incompetence and complete ignorance of the facts from Diana DeGette (D-CO), who supports a ban on full-capacity magazines without understanding what a magazine actually is. It appears that Ed Driscoll has a perfect example of exactly what Glenn was talking about, courtesy of a tweet from Donna Brazile. I would go one further when it comes to politicians, well maybe two further. Instead of demanding their tax returns, I would rather they have an extensive background check like they wish to put perspective gun buyers through and how about a lie detector test as well!
While politicians talk about expanding background checks for gun owners, I’m starting to think that what we really need are IQ tests for political officeholders. The only problem is, that might leave us with a lot of vacancies in Congress and America’s statehouses.
The debacle over New York’s rushed-through gun bill is one example of what happens when enthusiasm meets stupid. But another is to be found in Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), who supports a ban on full-capacity magazines without understanding what a magazine actually is.
Last week, DeGette justified her position this way: “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” Um, ah . . . no. Completely wrong, in fact.
To make things simple enough that even a member of Congress can understand, it’s like this: Magazines aren’t “bullets.” They’re, basically, metal boxes with springs. You fill them up with bullets, and put them in a gun. When the gun fires the bullet on top, the spring pushes a new one up so that it can load into the chamber. When you fire all the bullets, you pop out the box-with-spring and replace it with another.

Teachers Shouldn’t Use Red Colored Pens to Mark Students Homework Because It’s Like Shouting and Upsets Them
How on Earth are today’s kids going to be able to cope with any problems in the future. There in lies the rub, maybe they already can’t and explains the irrational fatal responses to dealing with issues and confrontation of today’s children.
Who in there life has not got a test or paper back in school marked up in read showing the misspelled words, errors and teachers comments? That may be a thing of the past. In the wussified world we live in today because “red” pens make children feel uncomfortable, researchers at University of Colorado in the U.S say that teachers should use more neutral colors like blue. GOOD GRIEF!!! The researchers behind the study say that teachers should not use red pens to mark homework and tests because it could upset schoolchildren. GOOD, THAT IS THE POINT SO THEY DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE IN THE FUTURE.
Teachers should stop using red pens to mark homework and tests because it could upset schoolchildren, U.S researchers say.
A study showed students think they’ve been assessed more harshly when their work is covered in red ink compared to more neutral colours like blue.
Sociologists Richard Dukes and Heather Albanesi from the University of Colorado told the Journal of Social Science: ‘The red grading pen can upset students and weaken teacher-student relations and perhaps learning.’
In 2008, hundreds of schools banned teachers from using red ink to correct work because they considered it ‘confrontational’ and ‘threatening’.
But Chris McGovern, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, slammed the findings saying: ‘In my own experience of 35 years in teaching is that children actually prefer teachers to use red ink because they can read comments more easily.
The entire point of marking a child’s paper, test, exam and quiz in red is to stand out from the blue or black ink or pencil that was used by the student. What a joke and candy-a$$ country we have become if a child cannot take having their exam graded in red ink. It might upset them? Really, maybe it should upset them so that they learn from their mistakes and get it right the nest time? But the liberals who have destroyed today’s public schools would rather the children feel better and not have anything upset them, rather than actually learn.
What have we come to in this country? I am sorry, but no one can tell me that the school system today. Between educators are more worried about teaching ‘Heather has Two Mommies’, charging children on terroristic threats when in possession of a Hello Kitty bubble gun, teaching sex-ed at far too young an age and gumming down the educational system with “No Child Left Behind’, allowing children to retake tests until they pass. We now have these fools worried about upsetting the children with red ink. Guess what, when you get a 100% or A+, that is in big bold red ink as well. Is that upsetting them as well? AMERICA, when are the parents going to stand up and make educators understand that it is during a child’s learning years that they understand how to cope with mistakes and failures that will serve them later on in life? Then again, many of the times, the parents are also to blame for their coddling of little Bobby or Suzie who were made to feel uncomfortable by getting a bad grade.
We have already taken away dodge ball and any thing that would promote completion in public schools. Picking teams is history because those who are chose last are made to feel inferior. Is it any wonder why when you do nothing but coddle children that they have no idea how to perform in the real world?
Any school that would follow the banning of red ink, should maybe have their decision makers be provided a pink slip as well.
Because Obama is a President of all the People … White House Petition Began by Moonbat Left Calls for Stripping Citizenship & Exile Anyone Who Signs Petition to Secede
This is still America, isn’t it?
As reported at the Weekly Standard, a White House petition has been started and gaining momentum calling for Barack Obama to sign an executive order to strip the citizenship and exile anyone who signs a petition in favor of a state’s session from the United States. The title of the petition is, “WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them.” At the writing of this post, the petition had 8075 signatures. So let’s understand this, those signing this petition want to take away the citizenship from others for expressing their right to Free Speech as provided in the US Constitution? Secession is a serious situation as many are getting fed up with our federal government; however, this petition is a joke. As opined by the Lonely Conservative, “Do they think Obama will deport all of the hard working taxpayers that he needs to continue paying into the system so he can keep spreading the wealth around?” Amen Sister!
A White House petition gathering force calls for citizenship to be stripped and exile for anyone who signs a petition in favor of a state’s secession.
“Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported,” the full petition reads.
The title of the petition is, “WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them.”
Numerous states have begun petitions to secede from the US.
63 Million People Saw Mitt Romney Take Obama to the Politcal Wood Shed During the 1st Presidential Debate in Denver, CO
The age old adage has never been more true than what occurred the other night during the first Presidential debate in Denver, CO dubbed the “Duel in Denver” … you do not get a second chance to make a first impression.
More than 63 million viewers watched GOP Presidential challenger Mitt Romney politically alienate Barack Obama during the debate. What many have called one of the best and worst debate performances ever, Romney easily won the debate at the night’s end, not on points, but by a knock out as seen by two post debate polls, HERE and HERE and more importantly, by the reaction of the LEFT. More people saw this debate between Romney and Obama than tuned in for the 2008 Presidential debate. For an electorate that many had deemed as uninterested, it would appear that many were engaged and saw Obama come across as not engaged and struggling to defend his failed polices or make any lucid comments.
More than 58 million people watched the first Presidential debate last night between President Obama and Mitt Romney, up substantially from the first debate in the 2008 election cycle, which had 52.4 million viewers.
Fox News was the most-watched cable news network during the debate, and will likely be the most-watched network on TV, though final broadcast numbers will not be released until after 4 PM.
What was the end result of the victory by Mitt Romney … all the Obama attacks ads against Romney mean nothing. Romney displayed himself as a warm, classy, intelligent, reasonable candidate and man. But most importantly Romney came across as completely … Presidential!
