o'scamcare - "The Stench Remains" [A secret waivers list?]

Health-care waivers smell like cronyism
Editor: The first anniversary of Obamacare has passed, but the stench remains.  Waivers are contributing to the foul odor.
Until January this year the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) posted a list of those to whom waivers were granted on its website . Now the website says the list is closed and directs inquiring citizens to another website (http://cciio.cms.gov/) for information about the program.  The only information readily available there is how to submit a waiver.
From available records, it appears that most early waivers were granted to unions and Obama campaign donors.  In other words, the waiver process smells like cronyism at its worst.
The Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies group requested the waivers list, the process by which waivers are granted, and the criteria for granting waivers from DHS.  But they’ve been stonewalled, which forced them to file a lawsuit to obtain the records.  Where is the promised transparency?
By initially putting these records on the DHS website the administration admitted they knew the public was entitled to this information.  So why has Obama’s Administration reversed itself?
In testimony before Congress, Steven Larson, deputy administrator and director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (whew), says granting waivers was always planned as part of the effort to phase out mini-med plans.  The problem with his argument is that the health care bill itself has 21 specific conditions for granting waivers, and phasing out mini-med plans isn’t one of them.
From the available information it appears this administration’s regulatory apparatus has exceeded its statutory authority and has violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.  Citizens don’t know this for sure because the Obama Administration isn’t releasing the records.
Transparency, which Obama promised Americans, is the simple way to clear this up.  If the administration is trying to hide something, they should realize that the cover-up is always worse than the crime.  President Obama, release the records.

o'tax'n spend - What does 4,064,000 years equal in dollars/second? Answer: U.S. Debt [redux]

The current U.S. debt: (includes unfunded liabilities) $127,491,037,000,000.00+ trillions of dollars!
which equals more than 4,064,000 years (millions of years) spent at a dollar a second!
(note:  at the time of this video, 2010, the funded debt was only $9 Trillion!!!)

Repeal that [welfare] law, and you will soon see a change in their manners.  St. Monday and St. Tuesday, will soon cease to be holidays.  Six days shalt thou labor, though one of the old commandments long treated as out of date, will again be looked upon as a respectable precept; industry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people; their circumstances will mend, and more will be done for their happiness by inuring them to provide for themselves, than could be done by dividing all your estates among them."

2nd Amendment - Guns for us, not for you (Washington Times, 15Mar11)

Land of fruits and nuts could see pistol-packing politicians


2nd Amendment - ATF & Obama "Project Gunrunner" Coverup

From: Second Amendment Foundation Sent: Wednesday, March 30, 2011 Subject: ATF and Obama Coverup
THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS ACTIVELY WORKING TO TAKE AWAY YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

     For two years, we've been hearing from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and others in the Obama administration about a so-called 'iron pipeline' of American guns across the border.
     In order to make sure that "pipeline" really existed, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), allowed about 1,765 firearms over 15 months to go from gun dealers in the U.S. to straw buyers that were the accomplices of a gun running ring set up by the ATF.
     Gun shops wanted to stop the questionable sales, but ATF encouraged them to continue.
     Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) has launched an investigation into Project Gunrunner, and now Rep. Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has launched his own inquiry.
     The more information we find out about this investigation, the more disturbing the findings.
     HOW HIGH UP DOES ATF'S CORRUPTION GO?
     What did Obama and Attorney General Holder know about the ATF's Gun Runner operation?
     Darren Gil, the former ATF attache to Mexico, tells CBS News the gunrunner operation was approved by the acting ATF director and by higher officials at the Justice Department, and that Assistant Attorney General and head of the Criminal Division Larry Breuer knew about it.
     In early 2010, serial numbers from guns used in drug cartel crimes were traced back to the "Fast and Furious" case in Phoenix. Gil went to look into it, but could not get access to any information.
     He had been locked out.
     Gil was supposed to approve every ATF operation involving Mexico, but he didn't approve this one. And he couldn't find out anything about it.
     Making matters even more tragic, assault rifles found at the scene of U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry's death in December, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata's death in February, were traced to these ATF "gun runner" sales. 
     Two brave United States servants, killed by guns supplied to their murderers by the ATF, probably under the watchful eye of both President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder---although Obama denies it.
     The Justice Department, which oversees ATF, says the agency has never knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to suspected gunrunners. 
     But all the evidence suggests otherwise. This is a cover-up at the highest levels of our government!
     The ATF is under threat of a 13% budget cut. They claim funding cuts will hurt their efforts to prevent firearms trafficking on the Mexican border---trafficking that they themselves have manufactured.
     What do you think was the purpose of Project Gunrunner?
     Is the Obama administration trying to gain more funding for the ATF?
     Did they want to use this false information as an excuse to increase gun regulations?
     Or did they want to use this "data" to reinstate the assault weapons ban?
     There is no way around it; this administration will do whatever it takes to destroy our Second Amendment rights!
     While the Obama administration was blaming our gun rights for the drug war violence in Mexico, its very own gun sting operation looks to have been a major source of illicit firearms.
     ATF officials refused to grant CBS News an interview when CBS started looking into the allegations of corruption... but whistleblowers within the agency have been more than willing to speak out about what they saw. However, most of them don't want to be quoted by name for fear of retaliation.
     One agent asked a superior, "Are you prepared to go to the funeral of a federal officer killed with one of these guns?"
     Another agent said, "We were fully aware the guns would probably be moved across the border to drug cartels where they could be used to kill."
     Another agent said, "With the number of guns we let walk, we'll never know how many people were killed, raped, robbed... there is nothing we can do to round up those guns. They are gone."
     And yet another simply called the operation, "insane."
     Acting ATF Director Kenneth E. Melson has not cooperated with the investigation. Senator Grassley told CBS News he is being "stonewalled" in his efforts to find out information.
     The White House has "no comment."
     But Obama DID end up giving a comment --- just not to the American people.  He talked with Jorge Ramos of Mexico's Univision network:
     Barack Obama: "First of all, I did not authorize it.  Eric Holder, the attorney general, did not authorize it."
     Ramos: "Well, who authorized it?"
     Barack Obama: "We don't have all the facts.  This is a pretty big government, the United States government.  I've got a lot of moving parts."
     Obama is pretending he knew nothing about this operation.  I find that highly unlikely.
     We are seeing the lengths this administration will go to, in their efforts to take away our gun rights.  This will not stand.
Please help us defend your gun freedoms at the Second Amendment Foundation, and stop the cover-up by the Obama administration!

o'bamacide - "Pay for Abortions or I'll Shut Down the Government," Harry Reid (D-NV)

From: ConservativeActionAlerts Sent: Tuesday, March 29, 2011 Subject: Harry Reid: "Pay for Abortions or I'll Shut Down the Government."
Harry Reid:  "Pay for Abortions or I'll Shut Down the Government."     The Hill newspaper reports Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has effectively issued an ultimatum with a threat to shut down the federal government unless House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) agrees to continue long-term funding of Planned Parenthood, the nation's #1 abortion provider, with your tax dollars.
      "A Republican proposal seeking to ban taxpayer dollars for Planned Parenthood will not be part of any agreement to fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year," declared Harry Reid, taking a stand for tax-funded child-killing.  "Not only no, but hell no," said Reid. 
     Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, criticized Reid's demands: "Senator Reid is wrong. Planned Parenthood is an abortion-centered organization and America's largest. It performs more than 300,000 abortions a year, which constitutes at least 37 percent of its revenue, by conservative estimates.... Planned Parenthood must be defunded and it must be defunded now."
       While Boehner had voiced support for eventually defunding Planned Parenthood, he stated last month he would not shut down the government over the abortion issue.  "There are a lot of options on the table but I don't think in the short term, the CR (continuing resolution) is the opportunity we're looking for," Boehner told CBN News.
     Pro-life activist Randall Terry says Boehner is caving in to keep fund abortions.  "Mr. Boehner does not get it," Terry said.  "The 'opportunity we're looking for' is here and now. By saying ahead of time that he would 'not shut down the government' over Planned Parenthood, he has telegraphed to the Senate, and to us, that he is surrendering."
       Will House Republicans cave-in to Reid, and fund Planned Parenthood?  Let's call all 535 Congressmen and Senators at 202-225-3121 and demand they stop funding aboriton.   Don't have time to make 535 phone calls?  Sign our petition, and we save you time by auto-faxing all of them, immediately.  Let's draw the line, and stop funding abortion.
     Obama Threatens to Shut Down Government without Tax-Funded Abortions
     The Washington Times reported last month President Obama was still threatening to veto House spending cuts to abortion provider Planned Parenthood, and Senate Democrats led by Harry Reid (D-NV) are demanding full federal government funding for abortions with your tax dollars.   "Mr. Obama has issued a veto threat on that bill, saying House Republicans? cuts are unacceptable," the Times reports, "and Senate Democrats said the non-spending provisions of the bill ? such as restrictions on Planned Parenthood and on Obama administration rules and regulations ? will also have to be struck."
       While their 2-week budget compromise averted a government shutdown, House Republicans fought to defund most abortions permanently when the House Judiciary Committee passed H.R. 3, on a strictly party-line 23-14 vote, sending the bill for a full House vote soon.  Puerto Rico Resident Commissioner Pedro Pierluisi was the only Democrat to vote for the measure, mislabeled the "No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act," which would actually continue to fund some abortions in the rare cases of rape and incest, while permanently cutting federal funds for over 90% of elective abortions, saving you tax dollars and reducing but not banning child-killing by groups like Planned Parenthood.
       The committee rejected all 15 pro-abortion amendments offered by Democrats.  Pro-life Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) rebuked the Obama Administration as the most pro-abortion President in history. "We?re getting to ask the real question ? does abortion take the life of a child? ? If it does, then those of us sitting here in the chambers of freedom live in the midst of the greatest human genocide in the history of humanity," Franks said before the historic vote.  By his veto threat, Obama wants to fund child-killing, especially in the inner cities, ironically, where black children are three times more likely to be aborted than white children, and abortion has reduced the black population nationally by 25%.
     Sadly, Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) admitted "H.R. 3 does not ban abortion. It also does not restrict abortions, or abortion coverage in healthcare plans, as long as those abortions or plans use only private or state funds."  So even if Obama does not veto H.R. 3, the legislation does not go far enough to protect life.
      As Senators prepare to restore the cut funding to Planned Parenthood, and try to block H.R.3, we who believe life begins at conception should actively petition all 100 Senators to FIX then PASS the three pro-life measures up for consideration this year.  Call 100 times to 202-224-3121.
      The U.S. House of Representatives voted last week to defund Planned Parenthood Federation of America [PPFA], the nation's largest abortion provider, who receives hundreds of millions of your tax-dollars to kill innocent children.  Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) offered an amendment to H.R. 1 that would strip funding from Planned Parenthood, which passed by a 240-185 vote in the House.
    
The National Right to Life Committee said in a letter to Congress:  "PPFA is the nation?s largest abortion provider, reporting 324,008 abortions in 2008. It appears that abortion accounts for roughly one-third of the aggregate income generated by PPFA-affiliated clinics. According to press reports, PPFA has recently mandated that all of its regional affiliates must provide abortions by the end of 2013.  Please call the office of your U.S. House member and urge him or her to support the Pence Amendment and all other pro-life amendments to H.R. 1."
     According to Jill Stanek of the American Life League, over 96% of Planned Parenthood's  services facilitate abortions, compared to adoptions or prenatal care, as shown by this pie chart.-->  That means for every one tax dollar given to Planned Parenthood, 96 cents facilitates killing innocent children.
     Please call your Congressman and both Senators at 202-224-31212 right now. If you have time, you can call all 535 Senators and Congressmen at that same number.
       In a letter  after receiving  begins debate this week on three important abortion bills, that would strip federal tax-payer funding of most abortions.  The three new bills are labeled H.R. 3 "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" [NTFAA], the H.R. 358 "Protect Life Act" and the H.R. 217 "Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act."  Although it's great to see pro-life Congressmen trying to stop abortion funding, but there's only one problem.  These bills still allow tax-payer funding of  abortions in the rare cases of rape or incest.  Why should we be forced by the IRS to pay a murderous abortion "doctor" to kill an innocent child, just because the baby's father was a criminal? We should not.  The baby deserves to live, even if conceived by rape or incest.  Punish the criminal, don't kill the innocent victim.
     Christian Coalition writes these 3 new bills would:
-Permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion across all federal programs.
-End use of federal facilities, such as military hospitals.
-Ban publicly subsidized coverage of abortion in the new "ObamaCare" health system.
-Prevent any abortion funding via ObamaCare.
-End federal funding for Planned Parenthood (and other abortion providers).
-Provide conscience protections for health care workers who refuse to perform abortions.
     Their analysis is mostly correct.  Subsidized abortions would cease, except it would still be funded in the rare cases of rape and incest, which we must also oppose, by calling 202-224-3121 for your Congressman and both Senators today.  But until the U.S. Supreme Court reverses Roe v. Wade, liberals will argue abortion is a "legal right."  Yet even if the government could try to over-rule God to make child-murder a legal right, must it also be a tax-payer funded entitlement?  Of course not.  Liberals often confuse legal rights with funded entitlements.   As pro-death Senator Barbara Boxer confused this week, the new bill H.R. to defund most abortion subsidies "punishes women and businesses with a tax hike if they wish to keep or buy insurance that covers a full range of reproductive health care."  No Senator, it merely requires they pay for abortions with their own private money, not with mine.  By refusing them our tax-dollar subsidies, and making them pay their own money to kill their own children, she calls it a tax hike?  Give me a break.  We're not stupid. Let's take a stand.
     Or maybe we are stupid.  For 2 years the Church has been largely silent while the Obama-Boxer-Pelosi coalition raised government spending for Planned Parenthood, just like the Bush-led government did for 8 years before.  Now Speaker Boehner's NTFAA bill attempts to change direction, by making the 1976 Hyde Amendment permanent and banning most federal funding for abortion-providers like Planned Parenthood.
       Without this ban, you can see in the <-- chart how "coincidentally" abortions  increase when their funding increases, and how YOU PAID FOR 363,000 abortions last year by funding Planned Parenthood (of which over 90% were elective, not rape or incest abortions).
       Can anybody guess what would happen if their tax-dollars were denied?  No doubt the number of abortions would go decrease, and tens of thousands of babies (but not all babies) would be saved.
     And herein lies the dilemma faced by the pro-life community.  Should we pass bills that save a few, perhaps even most babies while "legalizing" killing the children of rape or incest?   Some say yes, some say no.  I say we follow a sequence:  1) petition Congress to first remove the murderous "exceptions" in these so-called pro-life bills, then 2) ban all federal funding of abortion, then 3) pass personhood amendments to overturn Roe v. Wade, then 4) replace all liberal Supreme Court justices with pro-personhood justices, then 5) pass laws outlawing all murderous abortions period, unless they are needed to save the life of the mother.  Morally, if every living human is equal, then sparing the life of the mother is the only permissible case where such "choice" would be allowed by God.Please select, sign, and we will fax

2nd Amendment - o'gun ban: "The 90 Percent Myth" of guns to Mexico

From: Border Tactical Indoor Range, El Centro, Calif. Sent: Wednesday, March 30, 2011 Subject: March 2011 newsletter
referral URL: http://bordertactical.olhblogspace.com/?p=458
article source: http://www.nssfblog.com/report-shatters-myth-of-mexicos-gun-supply/ ( NSSF)
     A new report calls “The 90 Percent Myth,” which refers to the number of illegal guns in Mexico coming from the United States, “more political rhetoric than empirical fact.”
     We couldn’t agree more.  NSSF has been trying to stamp out “The 90 Percent Myth” ever since ATF misstated the number in testimony at a congressional hearing in 2009.  A prompt clarification issued by ATF couldn’t put the proverbial genie back in the bottle.  Unfortunately, “The 90 Percent Myth” has been widely promoted by Mexican officials and wrongly cited in U.S. news stories, although a Fox News study of the “90% statistic” noted “that number’s just plain wrong.”
     In a report issued last week, the independent research group STRATFOR has corroborated what NSSF has been saying for some time about firearms recovered from drug cartels in Mexico: that it is erroneous and grossly misleading to say that 90 percent (a rounded up number) of the firearms recovered in Mexico came from the United States.
     The truth is that less than 12 percent of the guns Mexico seized in 2008 have been verified as coming from the United States.  The proof can be found in the U.S. government statistics that the STRATFOR report explains below and that the pie chart clearly illustrates:
         According to a June 2009 U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, “some 30,000 firearms were seized from criminals by Mexican authorities in 2008.  Of these 30,000 firearms, information pertaining to 7,200 of them (24 percent) was submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for tracing.  Of these 7,200 guns, only about 4,000 could be traced by the ATF, and of these 4,000, some 3,480 (87 percent) were shown to have come from the United States.
         “This means that the 87 percent figure relates to the number of weapons submitted by the Mexican government to the ATF that could be successfully traced and not from the total number of weapons seized by Mexican authorities or even from the total number of weapons submitted to the ATF for tracing.  In fact, the 3,480 guns positively traced to the United States equals less than 12 percent of the total arms seized in Mexico in 2008 . . . .”
     NSSF urges media outlets to use the accompanying pie chart to help explain this confusing issue.
     Yes, nearly 90 percent of firearms that were recovered and able to be successfully traced by ATF were found to have originated in the United States (that’s 3,480 out of 4,000), but why should that surprise anyone?  The United States has a very good system for tracking firearms through serial numbers and purchase records (some countries don’t track them at all).  Mexico submitted for tracing only those firearms that it believed, due to their serial numbers, would likely trace positive.  The vast majority of guns recovered in Mexico are not sent to the U.S. for tracing at all because their markings, or lack of them, show they do not come from here.
     A number of handguns—the top three are 9mm, .38 and .22 caliber—and other sporting firearms have been smuggled across the border, but the STRATFOR report notes that the drug cartels increasingly prefer military weapons instead of sporting arms.  Military-grade equipment such as hand grenades, rocket-propelled grenades, automatic rifles and light machine guns are certainly not readily available in this country from firearms retailers.  These types of firearms and military ordinance are coming from someplace other than the United States.
     The STRATFOR report points out where the guns are flowing from:
  • “Most of the military ordnance used by the Mexican cartels comes from other sources, such as the international arms market (increasingly from China via the same networks that furnish precursor chemicals for narcotics manufacturing), or from corrupt elements in the Mexican military or even deserters who take their weapons with them. . . .
  • Some of these seizures have included M60 machine guns and hundreds of 40 mm grenades obtained from the military arsenals of countries like Guatemala. . . .
  • Latin America is awash in weapons that were shipped there over the past several decades to supply the various insurgencies and counterinsurgencies in the region. When these military-grade weapons are combined with the rampant corruption in the region, they quickly find their way into the black arms market.”
     While Mexican president Calderon is to be applauded for cracking down on the drug cartels and the rampant and systemic corruption in his country, blaming the United States and its Second Amendment freedoms for Mexico’s violent crime will not help solve Mexico’s problem. STRATFOR’s report argues that Mexico’s political leaders have attempted to deflect responsibility for dealing with the cartels: “According to the Mexican government, the cartel wars are not a result of corruption in Mexico or of economic and societal dynamics that leave many Mexicans marginalized and desperate to find a way to make a living.  Instead, the cartel wars are due to the insatiable American appetite for narcotics and the endless stream of guns that flows from the United States into Mexico and that results in Mexican violence.”
     This argument, of course, implies that U.S. guns laws and the firearms industry, specifically firearm retailers along the border, are to blame, yet it’s those same retailers who cooperate regularly with ATF investigators by providing information that can help bust the illegal firearms traffickers.  Also, the idea that there’s a steady flow of newly purchased firearms bound for Mexico doesn’t square with the fact that in 2008 the firearms successfully traced to the United States were, according to ATF, originally sold at retail, after a background check, on average 14 years earlier.
     We urge you to read the full STRATFOR report, which ends by dismissing “The 90 Percent Myth”: “It is important to recognize that, while the United States is a significant source of certain classes of weapons and ammunition, it is by no means the source of 90 percent of the weapons used by the Mexican cartels, as is commonly asserted.”

o'mam - Muslim Rights versus Other's Rights

"allah akbar: Allah is Greater."  The battle cry in war, riots, beheadings, stonings, Jihad, terrorists, and of suicide bombers.  The phrase has specific implications against Muhammad's Jewish and Christian enemies; meaning that Allah is greater than the God of the Jews and the Church.
From: ConservativeActionAlerts Sent: Sunday, March 27, 2011 Subject: Muslim Rights versus Other's Rights
     Senate Democrats are have scheduled a hearing on Muslim civil rights.  It will take place after Congress returns from a 10-day vacation.
     A couple of weeks ago, U.S. Representative Peter King (R-NY), Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, began Congressional hearings on the "radicalization" of American Muslims. The goal of the hearings was to determine the cause of dozens of arrests during the last two years of American Muslims who were planning terror attacks. Yet, the liberal media tore Rep. King to shreds.
     They whipped up such hysteria and hatred against the Congressman simply because he spoke the TRUTH about radical Islam that 24-hour security had to be put in place to protect him and his family.
     Now, in response, Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) announced the subcommittee hearing on Muslim civil rights this past Tuesday, claiming there was a spike in anti-Muslim bigotry in the last year that demands closer attention.
     The pro-Muslim Obama administration has once again bent over backwards to make sure that Muslims are treated fairly; even more than Christians or Jews in this country. Remember when Mr. Obama DENIED that the United States was a "Christian" country?!   Can you imagine what our Founding Forefathers would have thought?
     We need to let our Congressmen know that these hearings must be totally fair for all religions, not just Muslims. 
     U.S. Senator Dick Durbin declared: "Our Constitution protects the free exercise of religion for all Americans. During the course of our history, many religions have faced intolerance. It is important for our generation to renew our founding charter's commitment to religious diversity and to protect the liberties guaranteed by our Bill of Rights."
     President Obama never mentions the persecution and killings experienced around the globe by Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and other religious minorities in Muslim nations. However, Barack Obama is a real "champion" for Muslim rights not only in the United States, but around the world.
     The U.S. State Department, under Mr. Obama's direction, set up special Internet sites in Arabic that gives instructions on how to use social networking to topple oppressive governments. The results are seen in Egypt and in the Middle East where Christians face almost daily attacks. Radical Muslims are "challenged" every Friday by their Imam to bring wrath upon the Christians.
     What do we hear from the White House or the U.S. State Department about these murderous attacks on Christians? ZERO. NOTHING. ZIP!
     Does our federal government care for any other religious group, other than the Muslims?  Not really!
     Christians suffer much more persecution than Muslims. A report last week by "Aid to the Church in Need" showed that 75% of religious persecution is currently being carried out against Christians. The report states: "For millions of Christians around the world, persecution, violent discrimination and suffering are a way of life as they live out their faith."
     What about the Egyptian Coptic Christians who were killed for their faith on New Year's Eve? President Obama said: "I strongly condemn the separate and outrageous terrorist bombing attacks in Egypt and Nigeria. The attack on a church in Alexandria, Egypt cause 21 reported deaths and dozens of injured from both the Christian and Muslim communities."
     FACT CHECK: 45 were killed. 0 of them were Muslims. Mr. Obama is fearful that he may offend Muslims!
     President Obama removes his shoes before entering a mosque!
     Barack Obama had the same attitude when 67 Christians were killed in October of last year in a Baghdad church.  He never once mentioned that it was Christians who were killed. 
     On and on and on---the violence against Christians continues. Last week, news outlets reported that a mob of approx. 15,000 armed Muslims with Molotov cocktails, guns, and clubs, attached Christians just outside Cairo. The Egyptian army did nothing to prevent the bloodshed, but actually joined in the attack. "Mr. Obama, please tell both sides of the story!"
     The Washington Times reports: "In 2009, the latest FBI statistics available, anti-Islamic hate crimes accounted for 9.3 percent of the 1,376 religiously-motivated hate crimes recorded. That's far less than the 70.1 percent that were anti-Jewish.
     Just because every known attacker on 9-11 was Muslim, does NOT mean that we should come against every Muslim. But it does beg the question: How many more radical Muslims are there in the world---ready to attack us? Sure, freedom of religion is one of the cornerstones of our great country, but, please, we must be fair to ALL religions and not select one particular religion to bend over backwards to see if there has been a supposed "spike" of anti-Muslim bigotry that demands closer attention.
     I hope that Senator Durbin does not "grandstand" over Muslims for political purposes. That would be so very, very wrong. Your alarm must be faxed to your Congressman today. Please fax and donate.
     Sincerely, Tony Adkins, Spokesperson, Conservative Action Alerts
P. S.   Under the disguise of being supposedly "politically correct," Congress has "walked on eggshells" with the Muslim people. Please, just treat everyone the same; and help to stop this religious persecution --- both in America and overseas!
Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of the U.S. Congress to URGE them to be fair to ALL religious groups in the United States: Christians, Jews and Muslims; and make sure they don't "favor" one particular religious group over another! Your fax will help to make sure that religious persecution is dealt with in the exact same manner as every religion in America!

What were you doing in the last hour while the U.S. Gov't spent $188 Million Dollars of our money!  (Every Hour, Every Day!) (Apr11)   In 8 years, President Bush added $5 trillion to the national debt; President Obama, according to a revised Dec11 GAO report, added $4T+ to the U.S. deficit in 2011 alone!  The GAO estimates the deficit, including o'scamcare & mandates, may grow from $15T+ to over $26T+!  UPDATE: A little-noticed event occurred at approximately midnight on Monday, October 31, 2011.  The National Debt exceeded the GDP!  Imagine what these numbers are going to be now that Obama is reelected!

A trillion seconds pass in 31,688 years.  At $1/sec it would take 41,194 years just to pay off o'tax'n spend's new Feb12-Feb13 added debt - 538,696 years to pay only the national debt or 4,404,632 years to settle the debt+unfunded liabilities!

"Over the last four years our national debt has risen nearly $6 trillion, and just last week the debt topped an astounding $16 trillion.  To put that in perspective, $16 trillion is enough money to fund the US military, along with the military of every NATO country combined… for the next sixteen years!  Government spending is projected to hit $3.8 trillion this year alone.  Even after every tax dollar paid by Americans has been counted, the government will still overspend by another $1.13 trillion.  Every single second of the day our government spends over $12,000.  So in the time it takes you to read this article, roughly five minutes, our government has spent $3.6 million.  It take four seconds for the government to spend what the average American earns in an entire year."  (source: by Tim Phillips 17Sep12 at TownHall.com)
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself.  They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good." -- George Washington

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11
     It has been suggested that o'who?, the clown, and 'those who surround him' are not the bumbling fools they appear to be.  Nor are they one of the 'Three Stooges' but rather are shrewd implementation/drivers and fellow-travelers of policies designed to disarm the citizenry & collapse the American economy.  Why?  o'nocchio's grandiose scheme to "fundamentally transform America" is more than simple campaign rhetoric as can be seen by his use of "enabling acts" to circumvent the Constitution of the United States.  As Ollie used to say, "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into."

"As a nation we have been asleep for years.  Lulled by affluence and self-indulgent apathy, our collective awareness has grown dim.  This has created an opening for our enemies, one that may ultimately prove fatal.  This is the truth and what we do, or don't do, will determine the consequences, for better or worse.  It is time to decide." -- truthandcons.blogspot.com
