Coming To YOUR Town Sooner Than You Think

“He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.”)

All in the name of “fighting those nasty terrorists”. much like the failed “War on Drugs”, witch only provides billions of revenue to illegal outfits like the BATF, and DEA, the RFID debacle is heating up. Cameras will be first, like the Brits have. Then you will have to be chipped to be able to buy anything.

Orwell had it dead on, only off by 25 + years.

Our Last Hope For Our Republic – Ron Paul


I’ll spell it out to all of you briefly.. Ron Paul, a Republican Congressman from Texas is bidding for the Republican nomination for President in 2008. Rather than getting in a debate as to why I feel he is the best and only candidate to straighten out our Country, I’ll let you decide.

I already have made up my mind.

Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
He has never voted to raise congressional pay.He has never taken a government-paid junket.
He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.
He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against regulating the Internet.
He voted against the Iraq war.
He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.

More about Ron Paul to come.

Cheers….

Worthy read on a Saturday afternoon

I was flipping thru my favourite rag today and came accross the below article. Charlie is yet another Delconian that has waken up to the facts that the MSM has been trying to hide for years. Read on…

Unqualified candidate now our president
By Charlie Rodgers, Times Guest Columinst

Trying to explain how myself and millions of other Americans feel about President Bush is a little risky. I have to be careful what I say, use only polite criticism, and keep away from strong expletive. I have to carefully measure every word — I don’t want Bush’s law firm (U.S. Department of Justice) charging me with sedition or treason, and waiting for the FBI or CIA or even the Texas Rangers to come knocking at my door. Of those three agencies, I fear the Texas Rangers most, and the thought of being hauled back to Houston for a fair trial (and sentencing). But … what the hell, here goes.

My opinion of Bush started forming back when he was considered the presidential nominee for his first term. Ron Reagan, President Reagan’s son, made this under-publicized comment: “George Bush is totally unqualified to be president, and everyone around him knows it.” Well, we all know that Bush won the nomination and was elected fairly. Right? Ron’s opinion didn’t count all that much. His opinion was framed when George W. and was in D.C. as part of the vice president’s family.

Using that license, that authority, his antics became the subject of insider gossip. So much that his daddy had to chastise him. It didn’t take any research for Ron to come up with his opinion — he and other White House people were cautioned about this sophomoric prankster, they just had to listen. The stories flew around the capitol, mostly true, some not.

No door was closed to little George. He assumed the authority of his father’s office and nobody dared challenge him. His foolish antics were tolerated, because he was the son of our safely presumed next president. The things he did are a classic example of authority gone wild.
He had Texas longhorns installed on the hood of a government-leased limo. Ran up a $750 bill for dinner and drinks at a D.C. restaurant with a Texas oil man.
“Send the bill to the vice president’s office,” he said, and walked out giggling.
“Ordered” the USMC band to play “The Yellow Rose of Texas” three times at his daughter’s high school sleepover, forcing the band to cancel other scheduled events and flying them at taxpayers’ expense to Texas.

When his father became president, Dubya’s authority increased and rumors multiplied. Then George senior lost to Bill Clinton when he ran for a second term, and Washington exhaled — Dubya was going home. Then he became governor of Texas. Under Karl Rove’s direction, his campaign committee tore into Ann Richards’ with half truths and innuendo, all lubricated with millions in oil money.

With that victory, his ambition soared, with Rove to guide him: “Why not, president?” The best advice from Karl had to be: “Drop the cowboy image, take the hat off, take the boots off. It works great in Fort Worth, but it won’t play in Detroit. Then we’ll play up the Texas Air National Guard stuff, the glamour of the ‘Fighter Pilot’ picture.”

As the story goes, his flying skills were barely minimal. His hand/eye coordination and depth perception were borderline “qualified.” His father urged the examining board to “give the boy a chance.” They did, they qualified him for flight school — and with that they consigned two multimillion dollar F14s to the scrap heap. One hard landing, nose gear first and skidding to a stop past the runaway and the other, a pancake landing collapsing the main gear and spinning across the concrete into a hangar door. In spite of his failures (but through “administrative urging”), George graduated from flying school as a “Fighter Pilot.” Great campaign stuff.
You know the story. He lost the popular vote but won the Supreme Court vote (5 to 4) and became our president.

Then the tragedy of the Twin Towers in New York. As President Bush was in the center of a half circle of school children, supposedly teaching them something, an aide came in, whispering in his ear. “Our country is under attack.” The president sat there, looking bewildered for almost 10 minutes. When asked by a reporter why he took so long to respond, he said with a look tenderness: “I didn’t want to alarm the children.”

After he and Dick invaded Iraq and the WMD fiasco and the mushroom cloud speeches, the staged aircraft carrier landing where he played “Top Gun” in his flight suit with his helmet under his arm. With that phony “Mission Accomplished” banner in the background, his speech writers came up with some great lines. One of my favorites is: The camera zooms in for a waist up shot, he leans his shoulder forward, and says sternly: “I will protect the American people.” And the audience goes wild. Then that great applause line that he’s used countless times: “The world is better off without Saddam Hussein.” I can’t help but think, if he could have pulled it off, he’d have strapped Saddam’s body across the hood of his land rover and drove through the streets of Crawford shouting, “This is the guy who tried to kill mah daddy.”

Then the Harriet Miers misfire and her famous line: “He’s the most brilliant man I’ve ever met.” Whew! Can you imagine her with all that eye makeup sitting on our Supreme Court? There’s so much more about our “Fighter Pilot” president, his personality quirks, his flexible conscience, and far too much more to mention here. If Ron Reagan’s opinion had gotten more national notice, maybe things would be different.
Remember when he said, “George Bush is totally unqualified to be president and everyone around him knows it.” Too bad that not enough people heard him.

Honey… Your WRONG about the Mexicans

I just got into a heated discussion with the wife about illegals. She in one swift sentence stated that “The Mexicans do jobs that Americans won’t do”. Really? how about the Mexican cement contractors who last year managed to shut down a job that I was on in Honey Brook, all because of “Mexican protest week”! Or how about the landscapers and drywallers in Newtown Square working at the new Long & Foster building? Do you think that there are Americans not able, capable, or interested in doing that type of work? My Dad had a landscaping business, and employed local men and a few Irishmen off the boat. May I employ some cheap labour? Would you want me to wire your new home with them? Hell, I’d make a way better bottom line, maybe enough to take next summer off.

Bottom line is this: There are many many AMERICANS who would be willing to shovel shit just to feed their families. So to the wife and other liberal morons who want to allow these 30 million illegals to become Americans by paying a fine? Please! Open your eyes! They do not like America or Americans. They do not intend to assimilate and learn our national language. The do want to work and make money and send it back home, thereby screwing up our already fragile economy. They already get free health care, spit out kids every nine months in the hope of having an American born child, and as of late, are visibility protesting for their so called rights.. What about our RIGHTS?

So the next time you see these illegals with there shifty eyes and speaking in Spanish in front of you while doing the job that an AMERICAN doesn’t want to do, remember your job could be next.

Speakeasies In Clifton Heights?

Shawn McGee and Maria McKnight - Photo from the Daily Times
I was talking to a friend yesterday that I’ll call “Jane” about the recent undercover drug busts in Clifton Heights, where I live. She told me word on the street is that from now on, several bar owners have instructed their bartenders to flag after a few drinks anyone who isn’t a regular. If this is true, this to me means that the owners are bacicially condoning illegal activity, much like the Speakeasies did in the 1920’s, but not for booze, but for drugs. To those who say they have a right, I say maybe they do, but two beers and your out while a regular can get shitfaced is biased and could backfire with the right attorney.

Maybe they are just scared of legal trouble, maybe they knew about it (the drug dealing) all along and turned the other cheek. Regardless, those drugs today are illegal as of this blog post and the two young undercover officers should be commended for taking on the job. I’m actually going to Tailgators in a few weeks, as my Son’s band is scheduled to play there. Will they label me a narc? A Cop? Who knows? I’m there for the music and keeping an eye on things.

Cheers.

Run Away? Don’t move to Iowa

I caught this story after reading another blog. Five years is mandatory incarceration in Iowa for punching someone? Christ, what happens to the real baddies, like drug dealers and murderers? Automatic life in prison? Nah.. They get a slap on the wrist. Michael Mette, a Chicago cop was defending himself as far as I’m concerned when he was attacked by a college kid with political family ties. If the kid was some loser Mette would never have set foot in a cell. So here we have a police officer on the verge of doing five long years in jail, lose his job of course, all because some female judge named Monica Ackley decides that he should have run away. Another thing that gets my goat is that the so called victim , who admitted striking Mette first, received no jail time at all!

What is going on with these Judges and prosecutors? I would have demanded a trial by jury, maybe the people in Iowa aren’t as stupid as their Judges when it comes to common sense. Better yet, maybe my beloved leader George W. Bush could perhaps pardon him, on the grounds that it would really be a just pardon, unlike the one he gave his buddy Scooter.

Cheers.

The true meaning of July 4th

From Wikipedia: In the United States, Independence Day (commonly known as “the Fourth of July”,”July Fourth”, or even simply “The Fourth”) is a federal holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

Today should be treated as such. To the politicians in America who have violated our Constitutional laws? You should all denounce your citizenship and move out of the country. You have invaded other countries, spied on your fellow citizens, stolen billions of America’s money and fattened your friends wallets, allowed convicted criminals to walk away from justice, and thumbed your noses at the very document that you swore to uphold.

To my fellow Americans, I wish you all a safe and happy July 4th.

Cheers.
