February in the yard

Yes, we garden here in NZ in February.

Today: Samson has a quick afternoon snooze in backyard

Newly planted pink Hibiscus seems to be doing OK.
This is 3rd Hibiscus in my letterbox garden.
Also have peach & yellow ones growing.

Got recent snap of this large NZ dragonfly (Uropetala carovei).
Mr. Dragonfly partially ate a baby Weta

About 2 weeks ago, said 'Hi' to this large snail near shed.
There are 1400+ species of snails in NZ! :-)
Sorry U.S.A. peeps.
I read NY area had 2 feet of snow this week? (yikes!)
Hint: Feb is great time for a summer holiday in NZ
jes sayin'

Reagan's speech on socialized medicine still relevant

The plans for socialized medicine continue by the Commie/Dems... it is still a huge crap sandwich.

Everyone besides Dems wants reforms. It was clear to me from various 25-Feb-2010 "summit" clips, Dems are the TRUE party of "NO". They don't want to listen to reason and only want to do it their way.

Ronald Reagan's speech below is still relevant and explains why socialized medicine is not good for the U.S.A.

I actually can't remember if I've already posted this clip before, but even if I have: its worth a second post because Obumbles and crew are STILL trying to ram the crap sandwich down America's throat.

G'dammit... the U.S.A. misses the wisdom of a real President like Reagan:

Plethora of gates spawned by ClimateGate

If you hear "water gate", does the above come to mind? ...

below mentioned: Watergate building complex
... Or, are have you heard about the scandal(s) which drove USA President Richard Nixon to resign?
"Watergate" : a scandal that involves officials violating public trust through subterfuge, bribery, burglary, and other abuses of power in order to maintain their positions of authority (Etymology: after Watergate, building complex in Washington, D.C., housing Democratic Party headquarters, burglarized (June, 1972) under direction of government officials)
If you already know the above, you should be aware when someone tags the word 'gate' onto another word, a scandal is involved... Awesome! You are smarter than you look!
I admit I've had a hard time keeping up with all the Gates now coming out since "ClimateGate" first broke. (they are spawning like rabbits...!)
ClimateGate – This scandal began the latest round of revelations when thousands of leaked documents from Britain's East Anglia Climate Research Unit showed systematic suppression and discrediting of climate skeptics' views and discarding of temperature data, suggesting a bias for making the case for warming. Why do such a thing if, as global warming defenders contend, the "science is settled?"

PachauriGate II
SternGate II
Russia-Gate II
PHEW and this list is just the START! Click here to READ the recap covering all these scandals which will continue... probably until Al Gore is sued and put in jail for fraud... (I can dream, can't I?) ... or until the public refuses to listen to officials cry "WOLF!" anymore... when there aren't any wolves to be found...

Hey Beck: Reps v Dems are VERY different unless yr a RINO

Did Glenn Beck miss everything going on in 2009?

OR, at CPAC, was Beck just talking about RINO John McCain? (Yes, I still support Sarah Palin who has to support McCain - he did give us the gift which is Ms. Palin so he's not 100% horrible.)
However, Michelle Malkin reminds us, and the GOP, McCain IS one of the main problems:

"... to this day, McCain refuses to admit his own individual responsibility for supporting the pre-socialization of the economy started under George W. Bush and continued under Obama. And fellow Republicans continue to whitewash McCain’s fiscal irresponsibility record.

McCain has never admitted he was wrong about his support of:

His latest McLame-est excuse for supporting TARP? He was “misled.” "

So... for you 100% Beck fans: why is Beck above criticism?
I (and lots of others) still want to know why he refuses to discuss ALL constitutional issues including the Natural Born Citizen requirement for POTUS.
No answer for that yet, he jumped on the 'mock everything birther' bandwagon awhile ago....
Also, have you noticed how Beck and O'Reilly are best buds lately - even going on a recent comedy/speaking tour? That was odd. O'Reilly firmly disses 'birthers', too. So, are they in cahoots and if so, why? ... this paragraph sounds a bit paranoid on my part: but guess what I still want to know: why "it" (NBC) won't be discussed fully on FOX? I will always want this resolved - until it is resolved!

I noted recent "put up or shut up" Beck complaints on 3-Feb-10: CitizenWells has now put Beck and O'Reilly on his "US Constitution Hall of Shame".

Beck was the keynote / last speaker at recent CPAC convention. As GatewayPundit noted, Bill Bennett at National Review commented on the oddities in his CPAC speech: Beck thinks Republicans and Democrats are the same? (what? where has he been all year?):

"To say the GOP and the Democrats are no different, to say the GOP needs to hit a recovery-program-type bottom and hang its head in remorse, is to delay our own country’s recovery from the problems the Democratic left is inflicting. The stakes are too important to go through that kind of exercise, which will ultimately go nowhere anyway — because it’s already happened.

The first task of a serious political analyst is to see things as they are. There is a difference between morning and night. There is a difference between drunk and sober. And there is a difference between the Republican and Democratic parties. To ignore these differences, or propagate the myth that they don’t exist, is not only discouraging, it is dangerous."

C. Edmund Wright at AmericanThinker noticed Glenn's odd CPAC speech comments as well:

"Beck is a passionate and talented communicator, and he really explains "the idea of America" and how it coincides with modern Reagan conservatism very well. I just wish he could bring himself to admit that there are folks in the Republican Party who agree with that -- and there always have been.

Moreover, we need that very party to stop the Obama-Reid-Pelosi leftist express regardless of how flawed they are.

One has to question what could possibly be motivating Beck to be so blind to this. It has to be willful. He is a student of history! Could there be something ulterior at work?

In his speech, Beck claimed Rush and Reagan as his heroes. As a point of fact, both have given the CPAC keynote address -- Reagan numerous times. A study of the two indicates that neither would approve of much of Beck's speech, ironically. Of course, neither would have pulled the straw for Ron Paul either.

So without a doubt, it was a very strange ending to what had been an incredible weekend at CPAC. And Mr. Beck: If I am wrong in my analysis -- call me!"

TEA Party Patriots - 2010 Events

2010 Schedule of Events... (p.s. this is only 1 of MANY sites planning 2010 Events)!

Thousands of you responded to our "Three for Tea" survey at the end of 2009. Thank you for taking the time to help set the direction for Tea Party Patriots. The National and Local Coordinators took those results and have created the plan you will see below. It was a lengthy and thoughtful process, which we describe below.

Print this post and put it on your refridgerator, hand out to your family and friends and lets take back our country together in 2010!

Outline of What is to Come in 2010
  • Final Voting on Contract from America Begins: February 18, 2010
  • Recharge the Movement Protests: February 27, 2010
  • Nationwide Screenings of Tea Party Movie: February 27, 2010
  • Tea Party Local Coordinator Training - How to Start a Tea Party
  • Tax Day Tea Parties: April 15, 2010
  • Rollout of Final Contract from America: April 15, 2010
  • Constitutional Educational Training, Founding Principles Bus Tour
  • Activist Educational Training
  • Independence Day Events: July 2 - July 4, 2010
  • AUGUST HEAT - Congressional Town Hall Meetings
  • 912 March on DC: September 12, 2010
  • Get Out the Vote and Voter Education: October - November, 2010
  • ELECTION DAY, Tuesday, November 2, 2010
  • Year-Round grassroots lobbying when legislation arises

And check out: The Mount Vernon Statement

Constitutional Conservatism: A Statement for the 21st Century

We recommit ourselves to the ideas of the American Founding. Through the Constitution, the Founders created an enduring framework of limited government based on the rule of law. They sought to secure national independence, provide for economic opportunity, establish true religious liberty and maintain a flourishing society of republican self-government.

RIP Daddy the Pit Bull

From Cesar's site: "Cesar Millan, all his family and friends, his staff and volunteers, and dog lovers all around the world today will mourn the passing of one of the most loyal, trusting, well-balanced, and influential pit bull ambassadors the world has ever known. Daddy, Cesar’s longtime friend and partner in canine rehabilitation, died peacefully surrounded by family on Friday the 19th of February. He was sixteen years old."

I, and many others, gained a new found appreciation for how awesome, kind, calm and beautiful Pit Bulls can be - with the right owner - by watching Daddy on Cesar's show "The Dog Whisperer".

Our pets are only with us for a few short years on this earth. Love them while they are here and you will get twice of love in return.

Thanks for being you, Daddy! We will all miss you...

When the teapot boils over

Good article in WND today by Pat Boone called "When the teapot boils over"...

"What the TV and press pundits haven't yet recognized, along with the current administration and their Chicago-style political machine, is that the same desire for individual liberty and less government control (and voluntary, not coerced, concern for our neighbors' needs) is fanning the flames under this new teapot.

The water is boiling. But although, ironically, the trained eye of a "Newt" is included, the ingredients are not poisonous. They are the hearts and souls of our Founding Fathers, the life sacrifices of a million young sons and daughters who gave their all for our democracy, and the uncounted prayers of millions who cry every night and day for God to bless America. The lid is trembling. And unless the mounting pressure is heard and heeded – it will be blown off."

The "elitists" don't "get" the TEA party movement.

There is no one specific leader. The TEA parties don't need "one" leader because there are thousands of leaders.

All in 2009 and continuing forward: they meet across the nation, go to protests, townhalls and contact their representatives.

We the people WILL be heard.

Need to razor 9/11 conspiracies

Wow... I keep running into all sorts of comments on blogs or facebook - from those who STILL convinced 9/11/2001 was a huge government conspiracy -> they think those towers could never have fallen on there own, witnesses 'definitely' heard explosions so there 'must' have been bombs in the buildings, Bush was in league with Al-Qaida and on and on...


Alex Jones over at is all into this. Gee whiz...

Time for "9/11 truthers" to really step back, put down the conspiracy koolaid and study Ockham's Razor: the simpler theory is more likely to be true.

For those who still doubt: couple related links to start researching 9/11/2001.

* It was a coordinated attack; an event planned for years.
* Bush was only in office 8 months so no, Bush did not plan it.
* There is evidence a plan like this was discussed since 1981.
* This was a terrorist attack by Islam extremists.
* These men were associated with Osama Bin Laden & Al-Qaida.

There is probably no logic or truth to help staunch 9/11 truthers; they really just need to put down the Alex Jones koolaid now and go do something productive instead...

"Until proved otherwise, the more complex theory competing with a simpler explanation should be put on the back burner..."

Re-Establishing America

I am attracted to optimistic people with smart, true and moral messages. This is why so many loved Ronald Reagan and why so many are drawn to Sarah Palin.
From a greatly optimistic article from one of my fav sites "":
America is on the verge of something unprecedented in history: the peaceful, constitutional replacement of our country's entire political establishment.
No other country in history has ever attempted to replace its establishments so smoothly and so peacefully -- and so cheerfully -- as we are doing right now. And it isn't likely that any other country ever will attempt something like this.
How exhilarating to realize that 234 years after our revolution, the United States is still the most dynamic, forward-looking, optimistic place on Earth.
Boy, what an exciting time to be an American.
Now THAT is optimism, my friends
... now, get off your behind and get involved in a positive way to help your in your own community... Go run for a local school board or run for local office...
Get out there because we the people need you...

3 big USA companies jump off the S.S. Goracle

The S.S. Goracle is capsizing...

From Pajamas Media:

"The global warming ship has run aground on some very nasty rocks. BP America, Conoco Phillips, and Caterpillar are only the first big corporations to decide to jump ship before it founders and sinks."

Rush getting louder and publically wondering if Al Gore can be sued.

Phil Jones admitted his lies and fraud on the BBC interview.

Lord Monckton raised a lot of awareness on recent speaking tour in Australia while various countries around the world throw IPCC data under the bus, where it belongs, as the great global warming myth collapses.

Truth is emerging as it usually does...
It has started.

Hoping for the collapse of Church of the AGW

UN's IPCC report was based on Phil Jones data. From In BBC interview this week, Phil Jones says:

Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ has gone missing
There has been no global warming since 1995
Warming periods have happened before – but NOT due to man-made changes

Good commentary from HillBuzz today prays for the collapse of the church of anthropogenic global warming and wonders if it will take down the Democratic party along with the complicit deadstream media:

The Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming is collapsing…even the crooks at East Anglia University in the UK are admitting there has been no warming of temperatures for 15 years. They’ve all been lying this whole time. Conveniently, they keep claiming to have lost their notes and can’t produce any data sets proving their warming claims.

Lake Erie is frozen over for the first time in 15 years. Europe’s been pelted with blizzards. Almost every state in the US has record snow fall this year.

All coinciding, we note, with the period of decreased solar activity we’re currently in.

Because, as we learned in Catholic school, THE SUN CONTROLS THE EARTH’S CLIMATE.

There’s a very good chance that if the American public realizes how deliberately and aggressively they were conned by Al Gore and the Left with this Anthropogenic Global Warming business, and if the public realizes how much tax dollars were dumped into the hands of the international criminal cabal behind this scheme, the Democrat Party could go down with its Church…and the two will take the American media down with them.

Oh yea, people are figuring it out all right...

Now can SOMEONE, please get the NZ "leadership" to LISTEN already and HALT their goofy ETS schemes!

Rowboat access only

A little place to get away from it all... an oasis... a retreat.

Here are couple pictures of a place rented for Valentine's weekend here in NZ through "Book a Bach" near Purangi launch 20 minutes from Tairua in the Coromandel.

By: Rowboat
This is the driveway...

Shane rowing (back to car in this photo)

Once off the rowboat... down the wee walkway
through the Mangrove trees

At last... the bach (aka "cabin" for you Americans)
great views surround us...
Cicadas are buzzing and Quails toddle thru eves and early AM
Sat AM: We hike the entry "road" (rocks) up from bach
... need a good 4-wheel drive vehicle to traverse this
... don't think a pizza delivery guy could make it
Shane surveys the hilly "road" aka the path
We had fun hiking up to a small grove of fruit trees
View inside the bach...
Outside bach decoration

It was a lovely weekend ...
for a good time? go rent a NZ bach

Friday, February 12, 2010

Off to the beach...

We're off to a NZ bach on a beach in the Coromandel for a few days...
I'll dream a small dream about my past life in Chicago, snow, cold, wintertime...
as we walk along the beach in the warm sunshine...

Mr. Key, please scrap ETS

To: NZ Prime Minister John Key - Please Scrap the Emissions Trading Scheme

ACT MP John Boscawen is calling for the Emissions Trading Scheme to be scrapped:

"The Copenhagen summit was a fiasco and the credibility of the United Nations chief climate body - the IPCC - is in tatters. Yet New Zealand is due to become the first country outside of Europe to have an Emissions Trading Scheme and the first country in the world to tax its farmers.

New Zealand's ETS was based on the proposed Australian ETS Bill. Since passed it has become obvious that Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd will not be able to get his ETS through in Australia.

New Zealand is left facing a serious competitive disadvantage, which is why I have drafted a Private Member's Bill to scrap the ETS. The Bill has been entered into the Ballot.

ACT will continue the fight against the ETS for the benefit of all New Zealanders".

Palin needs help? She seems OK to me

Remember when Sarah resigned and Dem/progressive pundits all claimed she was toast (politically), irrelevant or some other criticism? (and Dems care about helping Repubs.... riiiiiiight)
Good commentary from John Zeigler in response to a progressive snarking "Sarah needs help".
"Sarah Palin obviously “needs help.” If she had been able to heed some of this advice earlier she might be far better off than she is today when, six months after being written off, she:
  • Is the most famous woman in American political history;
  • Has more money both personally and politically than she probably knows what to do with;
  • Has found a place in public life that has largely ended the attacks on her family;
  • Is the most sought after public speaker/endorser in all of politics;
  • Has more influence over the media’s agenda than anyone but the president;
  • Appears to now be completely immune to media attacks;
  • Is the leader in just about every poll for the Republican presidential nomination and has a virtually unfiltered platform on by far the largest cable news channel;
  • Is perceived by many as the leader of the most potent grassroots movement in modern American political history;
  • Is the author of the most purchased political book in recent times; and
  • Has all of this while not having to answer to anyone and has no actual responsibilities other than to her family. "

I agree with John... seems like she's doing just fine

How much global warming has fallen on your house?

Record snow storm hits Washington DC 6-Feb-2010
Even the post office closed... NYTimes said biggest snow fall since 1922...
Anthony Watts (from and Joseph D'Aleo co-authored a recent paper posted at SPPI called "Surface Temperature Records: Policy Driven Deception"?
The summary for policymakers:
  1. Instrumental temperature data for the pre-satellite era (1850-1980) have been so widely, systematically, and unidirectionally tampered with that it cannot be credibly asserted there has been any significant “global warming” in the 20th century.

  2. All terrestrial surface-temperature databases exhibit very serious problems that render them useless for determining accurate long-term temperature trends.

  3. All of the problems have skewed the data so as greatly to overstate observed warming both regionally and globally.

  4. Global terrestrial temperature data are gravely compromised because more than three-quarters of the 6,000 stations that once existed are no longer reporting.

  5. There has been a severe bias towards removing higher-altitude, higher-latitude, and rural stations, leading to a further serious overstatement of warming.

  6. Contamination by urbanization, changes in land use, improper siting, and inadequately-calibrated instrument upgrades further overstates warming.

  7. Numerous peer-reviewed papers in recent years have shown the overstatement of observed longer term warming is 30-50% from heat-island contamination alone.

  8. Cherry-picking of observing sites combined with interpolation to vacant data grids may make heat-island bias greater than 50% of 20th-century warming.

  9. In the oceans, data are missing and uncertainties are substantial. Comprehensive coverage has only been available since 2003, and shows no warming.

  10. Satellite temperature monitoring has provided an alternative to terrestrial stations in compiling the global lower-troposphere temperature record. Their findings are increasingly diverging from the station-based constructions in a manner consistent with evidence of a warm bias in the surface temperature record.

  11. NOAA and NASA, along with CRU, were the driving forces behind the systematic hyping of 20th-century “global warming”.

  12. Changes have been made to alter the historical record to mask cyclical changes that could be readily explained by natural factors like multidecadal ocean and solar changes.

  13. Global terrestrial data bases are seriously flawed and can no longer be trusted to assess climate trends or VALIDATE model forecasts.

  14. An inclusive external assessment is essential of the surface temperature record of CRU, GISS and NCDC “chaired and paneled by mutually agreed to climate scientists who do not have a vested interest in the outcome of the evaluations.”15. Reliance on the global data by both the UNIPCC and the US GCRP/CCSP also requires a full investigation and audit

Also, check out another site skeptical of AGW theories:

The Sun, not a harmless essential trace gas, drives climate change

...the sun? Now there's a thought!

I ain't no war monger

OK... Without naming names to protect the innocent (ha ha), an Irish co-worker of mine let slip couple months ago he thinks all Americans are "war mongers".

My reaction "... whaaat??..."

This person is from Belfast, Ireland... which has NOONE at ALL doing warfare on EACH OTHER for a) political or b) religious reasons for decades... Nope, NO warfare EVER happened between Catholics or Protestants in Ireland - Yep, the Irish are TOTALLY a PEACE LOVING NATION.

You DO think the Irish are "peacful", then what explains "Catholics and Protestants, enemies for centuries in Northern Ireland, have battled sporadically for years. The most recent round of fighting has been going on since 1969. Since then, nearly 3,700 people have been killed in the violence known as "the Troubles."

OK, if you can't figure this out: IT IS IRONIC an Irishman calls an American a "war monger"! I think it might be illegal? (snark)

This 'war monger' term is not foreign to me, as I've heard this before used as a general criticism of all Americans. I have now realized this bulls**t attitude has wafted down to New Zealand like a bloody feather on the breeze. Hey, NZ, wait until the someone (French perhaps?) comes down there and tries to INVADE you, blows up more boats or flies a jet liner into the Auckland Sky Tower. Let's see how peaceful you'll feel then... Sorry, I digress.

I just read an article that hit home with me as to WHY and WHERE this 'monger' criticism comes from. David Solway at Pajamas Media writes about Haiti and the concept of "Charity Begins at Home":

"Whenever the world gets into serious difficulties, whether owing to acts of men (i.e., “man-caused disasters”) or an act of God, it is almost always the United States that steps in to save the day. And what it generally gets for its troubles are tirades of denunciation and cataracts of resentment. As we know, the United States is the major contributor to the Haitian relief effort, yet it has already been condemned by Venezuela, by Bolivia, by France, and by several other European countries for launching an “occupation” of the island.

America, as the leading member of NATO, bombed Serbia into the ground to rescue the Muslim peoples of Bosnia and Kosovo from the ethnic cleansing campaign unleashed by Slobodan Milosevic. What it has reaped for its good intentions is a thriving Kosovan drug cartel, the increased animosity of the Islamic world, and a new spate of jihadist terror, both abroad and on its own soil. And we remember the Marshall Plan, without which the continent of Europe, which essentially attacked itself in a suicidal, internecine conflict, would today be a dismal backwater, perhaps even a congeries of ex-Soviet republics. For this act of unprecedented munificence, Americans are regarded by many Europeans as vulgar capitalists, crass unsophisticates, and cowboy warmongers."

That explains it!

"Whether it is Haiti or “Palestine” or southeast Asia, we (Americans) empty out our pockets to help, we send convoys of assistance, and we accept streams of displaced persons, refugees, and welfare recipients, straining our abilities to the limit. And our recompense, apart from a sense of easy self-congratulation, is often the rancor and vexation of many of our beneficiaries: we were too slow off the mark, the distribution networks put in place were deficient, we have not done enough to sustain or resettle or donate (a typical United Nations complaint, as per UN relief coordinator Jan Egeland castigating the United States for being “stingy”), or we have a secret colonial agenda insinuating itself as magnanimity and concern."

Stingy?! Oh, bloody hell, USA, get out of the bulls**t UN. Defund it, close the doors in NYC, buh bye. ...Ooops, does that make me an anti-UN monger? So be it.

Remember, Peace never fully exists for man. Deal with it peaceniks. Standing up for oneself, family, country or rescuing the poor, oppressed and downtrodden does NOT make one a 'war monger'.

World don't want USA help? ...Sure... let's STOP it ALL & see how long that would last!

Hand-gate? Srsly?

Those nut ball Huffpo readers ( calling it "Hand-gate" Seriously? ) were SO upset Palin had written a couple words on her hand at the recent TEA Party Convention in Nashville.
Sarah responded following day, at Perry's Texas rally, she wrote "Hi Mom!" on her hand... Huffpo nuts = Pwnd!
More from Conservatives4Palin.

So, I'd like the answer to the following question from Texas4Palin:
"If Sarah can do a whole speech with but five or six tiny words to guide her, doesn't that make her a genius compared to the guy that has to have hundreds of words fed to him via technology every time he opens his mouth?"

Good question... well?

Brit blogger has 10 apologies Oboy should make

"The Top 10 Apologies Barack Obama should make to the world"

Nile Gardener 3-Feb-2010

"The first year of Barack Obama’s (putative) presidency was marked by a series of embarrassing and groveling apologies for his country on the world stage. From his apology to the French for America’s supposed “arrogance”, to his massive mea culpa before the Muslim world in Egypt, President Obama succeeded in elevating national humiliation into an art form.

In his second year, I would strongly encourage the president to stop apologising for his country, and project more pride in his great nation’s past. The United States, together with Great Britain, have done more to advance the cause of liberty and freedom on the world stage than any other nations in history."

1. Apology to the British people
2. Apology to allies in Eastern and Central Europe
3. Apology to Iranian Dissidents
4. Apology to the victims of Communism
5. Apology to the victims of the Sudan genocide
6. Apology to the people of Honduras
7. Apology to the Israeli people
8. Apology to pro-democracy forces in Venezuela
9. Apology to the Dalai Lama
10. Apology to Chinese dissidents

Read the reasons why.

Going for gold again: NZ Mark Todd riding Gandalf 2012

Mark and Gandalf advertisting a product (what a cute grey horse! hey, where's my carrot?)

Mark Todd,51, winning Puhinui 3-day event in Auckland on Gandalf 16-Mar-2008

In one of my next lives, can I come back as Mark Todd riding Gandalf? These pictures show what an awesome athlete Gandalf is ... the last picture is great. I am in love with Gandalf.

From 3-Feb-2010 "The 53-year-old has been named by Equestrian New Zealand in an 11-strong high performance three-day eventing with an eye to the 2012 Games."

Going to the 2012 Olympics? WOW!

Well, he's no stranger to Olympic gold with back-to-back gold medals at Los Angeles in 1984 and Seoul in 1988.

Man, this guy is awesome...!

GO FOR GOLD MARK TODD... New Zealand is with you 1000%

1,876 black babies aborted every day in USA?

Wow... 1,876 deaths every day? That is a damn frightening statistic.

Gateway pundit was talking about a "rebuttal" (pro-abortion) ad to the pro-life ad which will air on CBS for the super bowl. A pro-life position has the progressive lefty dems all in fits and rages. Being pro-life, you see, is against their agenda.

I've read a bit here and there about black conservative activists being concerned about black abortion. They SHOULD be concerned!
GW pundit had this link, so I went to read up about the very sad facts from

Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion

On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated "Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member."

here is a question: why can't we just be pro-adoption instead of pro-abortion?

Bring back shame.

But, hand out birth control with parental consent.

Promote abstinence before marriage

When there are unwanted children: give them up for adoption.

... seems like a better idea than killing

... just my opinion of course

Robbing the private sector to intentionally harm America

Some good commentary from Rush Limbaugh on 2-Feb-2010.

Hey, remember during the past decade when people (media? leftists? pundits?) were "mad" at President Bush for supposedly spending too much?

Think back... Really can't be TOO hard to remember this criticism. After all, Obumbles is OFTEN states repeatedly over and over "this was inherited..." REMEMBER?

Stat: per Rush, 2008 had a GDP of 21%. The goal in new budget? Obumbles is trying to make it 25%: What does this mean?

"Twenty-five-point-four percent of GDP will be government. The only way that can happen is if you slice away at the private sector. They are robbing the private sector. They are defunding it, they are crippling it, taking over as many of the aspects of private sector market economics as they can, 25% of GDP is government, and government doesn't produce anything. All this is transfer payments. It's just redistribution of wealth, which Obama told Joe the Plumber, that's what he wants to do. He wants to return the nation's wealth to whoever the hell he thinks are its rightful owners, unions and minorities, whatever else."

After all Obumbles cites as the big problem (eg "inherited by Bush"): was still only $162 billion deficit as of 2007.


"Obama has offered a budget that does nothing to address the nation's serious short- or long-term fiscal problems. Indeed, it makes them worse."

Rush's producer Snerdley tells Rush "'s the one thing that no American ever thinks about the president is that he wants to harm the country. It's just hard to hear that, Rush."

Unfortunately it is obvious: Obumbles DOES WANT to harm America by dismantling American capitalism.

This is intentional.

Will "we the people" of America allow it?

Hey Beck, put up or shut up

I have been mostly supportive of Glenn Beck on Fox news. He has shone a lot of light on corruption in American politics.

However, he has been going on and on (...and on ...and on and on) about constitutional issues: covering (insert topic __) with "this isn't in the constitution... bla dee bla... do something about it America... bla bla"...
Rinse, cycle, repeat. Ok fine... but...

Why won't he discuss presidential eligibility? Beck fans have been TRYING to get him to discuss it, but intead, he just disses birthers or truthers (anyone concerned person is W.House is a usurper).
Not nice. Eligibility is a VERY VALID question!

Hey Beck, why the hostility for those who are seek the truth?

2-Feb-2010 CitizenWells challenges Beck to put up or shut up.

1-Feb-2010 Charles Kerchner has an open letter to Beck "are you listening"?

The Kerchner case (Apuzzo) as I mentioned LAST AUGUST 2009 IS alive and well. IT WILL be heard on the merits at some point in time.

Is it because Fox news is 40% owned by Saudis?

C'mon Beck, man up... discuss the natural born citizen requirement for POTUS and how NEITHER McCain and Obummers are constitutionally eligible...

America is already on to it... join us.
