WASHINGTON (AP) — Tens of thousands of protesters fed up with government spending marched to the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, showing their disdain for the president's health care plan with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" and "I'm not your ATM."
The line of protesters clogged several blocks near the Capitol, according to the D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency. Demonstrators chanted "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
Throngs of people waved U.S. flags and held signs reading "Go Green Recycle Congress" and "Obama Bin Lyin.'" Men wore colonial costumes as they listened to speakers who warned of "judgment day" — Election Day 2010.
Other signs — reflecting the growing intensity of the health care debate — depicted President Barack Obama with the signature mustache of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Many referred to Obama as a socialist or communist, and another imposed his face on that of the villainous Joker from "Batman."
Richard Brigle, 57, a Vietnam War veteran and former Teamster, came from Paw Paw, Mich. He said health care needs to be reformed — but not according to Obama's plan.
"My grandkids are going to be paying for this. It's going to cost too much money that we don't have," he said while marching, bracing himself with a wooden cane as he walked.
FreedomWorks Foundation, a conservative organization led by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, organized several groups from across the country for what they billed as a "March on Washington."
Organizers say they built on momentum from the April "tea party" demonstrations held nationwide to protest tax policies, along with growing resentment over the economic stimulus packages and bank bailouts.
Armey and other speakers directed their ire at Pelosi — Armey took a photo, telling the crowd he wanted to be able to prove to her they were there.
"If it's necessary, we'll come back here next year," he said.
Many protesters said they paid their own way to the event — an ethic they believe should be applied to the government. They say unchecked spending on things like a government-run health insurance option could increase inflation and lead to economic ruin.
Terri Hall, 45, of Starke, Fla., said she felt compelled to become political for the first time this year because she was upset by government spending.
"Our government has lost sight of the powers they were granted," she said. She added that deficit spending is out of control, and said she thought it was putting the country at risk.
Race also became an issue when a black Republican leader denounced African-American politicians that she said had an "affinity" for socialism.
"I'm outraged prominent black politicians use the race card" to cover up their failed policies, said Deneen Borelli of New York.
One woman held a sign with images of Martin Luther King Jr. and Obama, with the words printed alongside: "He had a dream, we got a nightmare."
Lawmakers also supported the rally. Rep. Mike Pence, chairman of the House Republican Conference, said Americans want health care reform but they don't want a government takeover.
"Republicans, Democrats and independents are stepping up and demanding we put our fiscal house in order," Pence, of Indiana, told The Associated Press.
"I think the overriding message after years of borrowing, spending and bailouts is enough is enough," Pence said.
Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., and Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., also spoke at the rally.
Other sponsors of the event include the Heartland Institute, Americans for Tax Reform and the Ayn Rand Center for Individuals Rights.
Connie Castleton, 52, of Irving, Texas, said she drove 20 hours from her home to attend the rally. The nurse said she's motivated to try and get others involved in opposing Obama's health care plan.
"There's a lot more people mad about what's going on than I thought," she said.
Several protesters said they represented a "silent majority" or referred to themselves as "community organizers" — a phrase often associated with the president.
"This isn't some right-wing conservative agenda," said 30-year-old Adam Moore of Rochester, Mich. "This is a true grass-roots movement."
Erica Coyle, who's in her 50s and is from Louisville, Ky., said problems began before Obama took office, but she said the situation has worsened and people are "finally waking up."
"This is his Waterloo," Coyle said of Obama.

Thank you service members.
**I'm not clever enough to come up with something like this; this is a forwarded email
Let me get this straight.
Obama's health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it and whose members will be exempt from it, signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that is broke.
What could possibly go wrong?

Jesus healed the sick without government force. He did charity on his own without expecting to be repaid and without stealing from the good people of the community.
Does anyone else feel like they need to apologize to God on McDermott's behalf? Is anyone else embarrassed but such statements? Forgive them, Lord, for they do not know any better.

MAHER: But yeah, I mean, they are talking about 60 votes. Forget this stuff, 60. We can't get Americans to agree on anything 60%. 60% of people don't believe in evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they're stupid. Just drag them to this. Get healthcare done.

Race issues are a tired subject. Get over it already. This is just beyond silly and the black people are reaching. Waaaah. Such victims. It's people like this who whine about race issues that are making their own race look bad--they don't need any help from white folks!
Anyway, this article had me half laughing in disbelief because a toy company made dolls of three races (white, black, hispanic) to be cuddling with a stuffed animal. One theme was Panda and another was Monkey. Black people are outraged that a black doll is cuddling with a monkey.
Sometimes a monkey is just a monkey.
The dolls are like the ones below except holding a monkey. Video on the article.

Don't ask me to pay 500 a month if you dont have cable and internet, aint happening.
I am not trying to sound bitchy but you would be amazed at the crap people on here expect.
If we do rent from you, we will NOT tolerarate anyone stepping foot into our room, because we are paying for it and we enjoy our privacy, if that ever gets broken will we know trust me and we will move out most likely to same day.
I am not desperate, I have money and a place to stay right now I am just kinda looking for something that has some privacy.

I guess you really should FEAR some DENTISTS!
Of course, not MY DENTIST (Dr. Jim Coleman), but the coalition of dentists that just sent out the flyer below touting that their staff are members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union. Gee--I WONDER who they're supporting...
Just in case you can't see who they're advertising for, I offer the following Obama Logo reminder:
Apparently the union difference offered here is an incomplete, single-colored, haphazard rainbow/sunbeam.
(Thanks to the anonymous listener who sent me the flyer!)

The libs are so self-righteous with their organic and so-called locally grown food but chew on this: if Obama taxes the crap out of businesses and restrict what you can grown in Seattle (true story) then how can people grow and sell local food? So locally grown food will be hard to grow and since we will be taxed about 60 percent to pay for "free" socialized healthcare then actually selling the local food will be hard too since no one will have the money. Plus think of all the greenhouse gases veggie growers are putting into the environment when they can't sell their veggies and they rot. (hand to my forehead: woe is me, not the greenhouse gases! Think of the
War on drugs. War on gangs. War on terror. Can we declare a war on liberals??

I'm sick of this area and often for fun will read about other cities that's be fun to live in or near. a trend I see is that all cities that have a booming industry and beautiful geography have been overtaken by the libtards. Which leads me to believe that liberals are selfish. They want to live in beautiful mountains (Colorado, Seattle, California, Oregon) and beaches (the left and right coasts). Notice how they grab up all the jobs in said cities but piss and moan that there is too much commercialization, too much money juxtaposed with too many homeless people. They have an abundant amount of food but complain about cow farts and sheep burps harming the environment.
They are out of touch.
This group takes all the high paying jobs because they are more willing to slit throats to get to the top. When you have a city of money then of course lazy and homeless people are going to come around and beg-- free money! And when you take your steak for granted, you don't think of the farmers who are doing back-breaking work in a countryside (that no liberal will set foot on) so they can make a living to feed their families. If you care so much about cow farts hurting than the environment then you hav your values mixed up. Cap and T(raid) will hurt the farmers and then you'll have even more homeless people.
Liberals live the good life with green trees, mountains and lakes. They take cushy office jobs during the day and take their bikes out for a ride after work. They eat food without any regard as to how it came to them. They get fancy healthcare through their work and feel guilty about it so they demand that everyone should get "free" healthcare. (anything free from the gov't is never free) They think they represent the country. They couldn't be more wrong.
On a healthcare side-note, the liberals are saying that queer marriage and socialized healthcare are "basic human rights." Let me tell you a little something about human rights. Human rights are endowed by our creator whether you are normal and believe that God is our creator, or if you are a nut-job who thinks the universe farted and created earth which then created humans out of nowhere. Either way, you were created. Basic human rights are necessities like food, water, shelter and clothing. We are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Don't let anyone tell you that government gave you those rights-- God (or your creator of choice) gave you those rights. Government does not grant rights.
Government does not grant rights.
One more time. Government does not grant rights.
God granted people life, liberty and pursuit of happiness and the constitution does not that government is allowing that but stating that those things are our rights and the government may never take them away. Ever.
Healthcare and queer marriage are not rights. If you really want to do something about them then take a vote but don't you dare say that the services of another human being (healthcare) or immoral acts of human beings (queers) are rights. They aren't
That's my ramble.

Amazing book. Totally "made me think" and reassess my prespective on life. The book tells how the women's magazines from Family Circle to O to Harper's Bazaar sell unhappiness, stress, and victim mentality to women. She often talks about and quotes the Spin Sisters known as Katie Couric, Oprah, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and Rosie O'Donnell. I was floored when reading this especially near the end about the politics of these wretched women. The honestly think that they are the mainstream woman; just your average soccer mom who knows the everyday struggles of being a wife/mother/woman. Well Katie, you make 16 million dollars a year and I make 16 dollars an hour...you have no clue what it's like to be "average."
One analogy is when the author, Myrna Blyth, was sharing a cab with a couple of these gals. They were talking about prayer in school and the Spin Sisters were all up in arms about the cruelty to condone such a thing, don't these politicians know what separation of church and state means?? The cab driver, an African-American man, speaks up and says that prayer isn't so bad, he wouldn't mind if his kids prayed in school and Lord knows kids these days need it. The women went silent for the rest of the ride. Once out of the cab, they started squawking about how this man doesn't know what he's talking about, he didn't mean that, etc. These elitist liberal media mushheads don't understand that there is a huge difference between their mindset and the general publics. They see themselves and in the middle, mainstream, normal. Anyone who disagrees must be crazy and ultimately destroyed. (remember Joe The Plumber?) They have are so incestuously involved with such a hard-core leftist point of view that they honestly don't think others exist.
The biggest things that opened my eyes is the way they sell garbage to people. She did a three year study of 5 major magazines (don't have the book with me at the moment so I can't tell you which ones right now) to prove her point. Not only were there hundreds of examples of stories that tell women that they are stressed, but there were also hundreds of stories about weight loss (the "quick fixes" that never work) and not one average looking woman on the cover-- only skeletons and massively touched up pictures of celebrities. The stories about stress implanted the idea that you are at a disadvantage anyway by just being a woman. The add the career, husband, kids, house, car, friends and pets and you are a total disaster! And almost every time the magazine suggests taking a warm bath and lighting some candles and aromatherapy. Yeah... that'll do the trick... She also quotes a study that shows that because of modern conveniences, people have gained about 5 hours of time in the day but still feel they need more time. What are we doing with our extra time? Pissing it away on TV. The day goes by very quickly when you watch too much TV. I would know.
The selling of unhappiness struck a chord with me. I'm a natural complainer, glass if half empty kind of gal but this book showed me how wonderful we truly have it! When asked what a woman would do with free time, they were dumbfounded. What would we do? Probably watch TV. Most woman say they rather be busy and "stressed" than bored. So why are we complaining when we have a full day?? Blyth also talks about how stress was a term added as an adjective of daily life in the 50s. Advertisers use that as a selling point. "You are stressed and need to relax. Buy my product! It's the only way to be free!" If that were true then there wouldn't be a new product or idea every month for every magazine. We'd have one cure and be done.
Although this book is about the media selling unhappiness and liberalism to women, I would strongly encourage men to read it too, especially if you have a wife or daughter. They may not know that they are a media pawn.

With budget deficits soaring and President Obama pushing a trillion-dollar-plus expansion of health coverage, some Washington policymakers are taking a fresh look at a money-making idea long considered politically taboo: a national sales tax.
A White House official said a VAT is "unlikely to be in the mix" as a means to pay for health-care reform. "While we do not want to rule any credible idea in or out as we discuss the way forward with Congress, the VAT tax, in particular, is popular with academics but highly controversial with policymakers," said Kenneth Baer, a spokesman for White House Budget Director Peter Orszag.
Which means they aren't saying no.
The federal budget deficit is projected to approach $1.3 trillion next year, the highest ever except for this year, when the deficit is forecast to exceed $1.8 trillion. The Treasury is borrowing 46 cents of every dollar it spends, largely from China and other foreign creditors, who are growing increasingly uneasy about the security of their investments. Unless Congress comes up with some serious cash, expanding the nation's health-care system will only add to the problem.
Key lawmakers are considering other ways to pay for health reform, including new taxes on sugary soda, alcohol and employer-provided health insurance. The last proposal could raise a lot of money -- nearly $1 trillion over the next five years, according to White House budget documents. But options on the table would raise a fraction of that sum. And while it might pay for health care, it would barely dent deficits projected to total nearly $4 trillion over the next five years and to grow rapidly in the future, as baby boomers draw on Social Security and Medicare.
Did you catch that? The VAT will bring in nearly $1 trillion dollars BUT we are expecting a $4 trillion dollar deficit. So it wont even help!!!
The VAT has advantages: Because producers, wholesalers and retailers are each required to record their transactions and pay a portion of the VAT, the tax is hard to dodge. It punishes spending rather than savings, which the administration hopes to encourage. And the threat of a VAT could pull the country out of recession, some economists argue, by hurrying consumers to the mall before the tax hits.
Why do they want to punish spenders?? Why, Why, Why?? Aren't spenders the ones who, oh I don't know, move the economy?? What are they thinking? Are they so disconnected from "flyover country" and think that the only people who buy things are rich people? Don't they know how hard it is for impoverish people right here in the Seattle area to buy food? Over-taxation will ultimately hurt the poor, no matter the intention. If the gov't gets rid of ALL other taxes then I might be open for a VAT that does not include food.
In my oh-so humble opinion, taxing food is wrong. It makes me think of the third world countries like Africa who have war-lords that use food as a way to control people.

REALLY??? That has NEVER happened! This is BIG news!
In Pyongyang, North Korea said that it had carried out a powerful underground nuclear test — much larger than one conducted in 2006. The regime also test-fired three short-range, ground-to-air missiles later Monday from the same northeastern site where it launched a rocket last month, the Yonhap news agency reported, citing unnamed sources.
And all Obama can say is we must "stand up to" this behavior.
Appearing on the White House steps, Obama said that its latest nuclear underground test and subsequent test firings of short-range ground to air missiles "pose a grave threat to the peace and security of the world and I strongly condemn their reckless action."
He called it "a blatant violation of international law" and said that it contradicted North Korea's "own prior commitments." Obama had released a written statement chastising the North Koreans in the early morning hours of Monday.
Ooooh, so scary!
This is so laughable! It's like Carter all over again! He's probably going to panty-waist around using preschool verbage like telling them "that is unkind" and to "walk away" from their bad behavior.
*Oh yeah?! Launch a nuclear missile above ground and I'll write two letters next time! Take that. (sticks tongue out)*
For all you left-wing nut jobs who will twist my words, I am not suggesting he order a war on them but his constant pandering and dicking around has left threatening enemies unafraid of the US. Reagan had the balls to be strong and use stronger words than "I condemn your actions" and in the end he didn't have to use force to get our hostages freed.
At the State Department, officials said that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was "engaged in intensive diplomacy" on the issue.
Replace the word "diplomacy" with "bending over." How in the hell is "intensive diplomacy" any different than regular diplomacy? Obama should spend more time dealing with international threats such as these in a firm manner rather than pretend the non-threatening, hard-working, generous, content Americans are the enemy. I'm surprised that the media actually wrote a story on this because it detracts from Obama mission as
Liberty is great, ain't it?
Our presidents have made mistakes the past 200 years (no, not just Bush. Come on fools, open your minds a little and look past that) but life is pretty damn good right now. It's not because of the peace corp or trying to chat lovingly to people who HATE us. No, it was because we have the best damn military and that, my friends, is the only thing keeping us from total destruction. We don't go in to war to conquer a nation like the Soviets did nor do we start wars against an ethnic group like the Germans did. We go into to war when we cannot wait anymore. We go into war when we absolutely have to. You know our liberty is at stake when we go to war.
Thank you troops for preserving our liberty. The ingrates on the left would be thankful too (if they were more open-minded) if they could see how blessed we are.

Support the war? You are a war-mongerer
Support traditional marriage? You are homophobic
Don't blindly support Barack Obama's policies? You are a racist
Support freedom and individual liberty? You are closed-minded
Eat meat? Killer
Want socialism to fail? You are a terrorist
Christian? You are a religious nut-job
Own/like guns? You are a fear-mongering nut-job
Say anything remotely negative about any single person from the Left? You are a hater
Think that every fetus is an individual human that has a right to life? You hate the right to abort
Believe in the Constitution? You are a radical right-wing extremist
Does that sound about right Peacemaker? It seems to me that if your left-wing cult(ure) is about peace, love and tolerance should be more peaceful, loving and tolerant to those who have different views. You don't have to agree with us just as we don't agree with you. Your cult also believes that there is a gray area in all things, nothing is black and white. So why can't our beliefs fall into that gray area? For example: if we support traditional marriage (man and woman) but don't hate, kill, protest, assault, harass or maim ALL gay people, doesn't that mean we are gray? You probably support gay marriage 100% which would make you either black or white. People, like those (loving, peaceful, tolerant Muslims the left loves so much) in Iraq, who think homosexuality is a crime would be the other end of the spectrum. We conservatives are somewhere in the middle and would deny traditional marriage to gays but not life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
I can't see how being a conservative makes me closed-minded when it's the ultra-left who makes disgusting and horrible "jokes" about Rush Limbaugh, our Pro-America Tea Parties, a beauty pageant who simply says she supports one thing (not like she wants to kill the thing she doesn't support) and destroys your "Anointed One's" opponent because she did such a blasphemous thing as run against him. And how about Joe the Plumber? He asks a simple question to Obama and he is destroyed? If the bias (closed-minded) press can cover up for Obama while destroying the life of your average-American, how can we not stick to the gray area when we cn't trust our president?
I read the book Slouching Towards Gomorrah and one thing the author points out is that no matter how we try to cater to the left by compromising our convictions, values, morals, policies and principles, the left will never be satisfied; it will never be enough.
It seems to me that Peacemaker is thinking from a closed-minded point of view which is actually very selfish. It's selfish to want universal healthcare because rather than bring the quality of healthcare up, it will in actuality drive it down. (did you know england can no longer provide life-prolonging drugs to those with terminal illnesses because they are broke?) It's selfish to "go green" because it drives up the cost of energy (heat, electricity, AC, etc.) and oil (for the poor to drive to work at their minimum wage jobs). It's selfish to assume that kids can get along without a stable home life with a mother and father-- no matter how much you love your children, they need a mom and dad to relate to on different levels. It's selfish to say that "if you don't support Obama then you are a racist" because you are depriving US of OUR first amendment right to speech. (shall we show the same respect to your president that you showed to mine?) and for that matter, do you only like the constitution when if benefits you and not us? Most of all, it's selfish to tax the rich to give to the government. I do not envy the material things of the rich. People can be (and should be) happy without a new car or a big-screen TV). I benefit entirely from the free market as a middle/working class citizen. When the rich buy coffee, baristas have a job. When the rich hire a nanny, I have a job. When the rich renovate to their homes, my parents have jobs. How in the hell is stealing from the rich to give to the government going to heal an ailing economy? George Bush may have built the bridge to socialism but Obama need not have herded his cronies merrily across that bridge-- socialism got us into this financial crisis, only capitalism will get us out.
I urge you to read the book about terrorism by Bill Cooper. Also check out:
and this will explain how big of a threat the radical-Islamists really are. We did not go into war for nothing and in my humble opinion, Obama should be prosecuted for the crime of treason if he ends the war too soon. (he should be prosecuted for many things in his "transparent" administration but that's another blog).
I get that you hate my right to free speech but love yours. That's ok. That is the benefit of Oklahoma and Texas tearing away from the USA if need be in the future; we will be free and you will be oppressed, a slave to your messianic politician. Peacemaker, you are right about one thing: the IQ will go up and that will be the IQ of the free states of OK and TX, not of the People's Progressive Tyrannic Republic of Barackville.

Then it rains. On a Monday. On the first day of a major road closure.

One of my favorite lines of the movie:
Caleb: "If there is a God out there, he's not interested in my problems...where has he been all my life?"
Dad: "He's been at work all around you. You just haven't realized it. You haven't exactly given him an open invitation."
Go forth and watch this movie.
I started reading this book called God is Closer Than You Think and this is good quote to go along with this movie: "The greatest moment of your life is now. Every past moment is irretrievably gone. If you live there you lose your life... You can spend eternity waiting for tomorrow or worrying about tomorrow. If you live there, you likewise will lose your life."
Take it one day at a time.

I highly recommend it but be aware that it is in Hindi so you'd be reading subtitles which for me personally wasn't that bad.
This movie, the poverty, the "women's shame", and traditions makes me grateful to be an American woman. After being so deeply rooted into this way of life for so long, one of the main characters was dumbfounded to discovered that recently a law was passed saying that widows may remarry. When she asked why they didn't follow it, the religious leader who was telling her this (a man by the way) said that they "ignore laws that don't benefit them." Food for thought.
Anyway, as I was saying I am glad to be a woman in America. But it made me realize how ungrateful Americans in general really are. For example, gay rights activists (radicals), are complaining that they are kept down, have no rights and are discriminated against. What a horrible country we live in. Oh woe is them. Blacks are complaining the same thing and yet we have an ever-increasing number of black people in power (president included) and an ever-decreasing number of discrimination and hate crimes. Last but not least, the femi-nazis complain about the unfair treatment of women in the work place and in power (that means Hillary, they couldn't give a rats-behind about how Palin was treated).
I'm going to say something now and I want all you complaining minority groups to read carefully. Are you ready? Here it goes:
SHUT UP ALREADY!!!
Ok so you can't get married because you are a queer, big freaking deal. No one hates you. No one wants you dead and no one wants you to live as a social outcast in a special home in a village on the river. Black? You make up less than a quarter of the USA population whereas whites make up about three-quarters of the population, OF COURSE some things will seem unfair! It's simply numbers! If you want to grow in number and in power then stop aborting your children. Michael Medved made a good point the other day when a black caller said, "I want white people to fail. I want them to suffer like we suffer." Medved pointed out the numbers and said, "how can 25% of the population succeed if 75% is failing?" Women listen up. It sucks that we make less money. It sucks that men still look down on us on occasion but shut up. We are not suffering nearly as much as the widows in Water. We are free to marry any man we want. We are not pimped out at 8 years old in a place where no one gives a damn. We. Have. Rights.
Again, I feel SO grateful to be an American woman. Such freedom. I wish more people would embrace what we have and stop complaining of what we don't have. Americans did not have easy "luck" in becoming this free and mighty nation. It did not fall in our forefather's laps. Liberty was fought for because they did not want leaders who would ignore laws that do not benefit them. Women did not just happen to become free one day. We had to fight for it. Same with minorities. Blacks like MLK fought hard so that skin color isn't a make-or-break for acceptance. And Queers-- well, you never had it that hard. We learned from these past fights and know that we need to accept people for who they are. We did not become who we are by walking on easy street. Stop feeling guilty about being an American. The best way to help those in need is to be strong yourself. You may have been born into this life of luxury but it was not a gift; it was earned. Have courage. Have faith in yourself, in your country and in God and you can use your luxury to bring good things to others. If we fail tomorrow as a country, then those you want to help cannot be helped.
Everyone needs to see this movie. Then maybe you too will fall in love with America.

This one is not funny but actually a little disturbing. Obama has yet another fainter in his audience. The thing that bothers me more in this video is the very last bit when he says the word change; the audience goes wild. Why? Was he the inventor of the word? Was he the first one to use it as a slogan? The first to use it at all? Didn't Hitler use change as a slogan for his campaign? And Castro? And Bill Clinton? Hmmm...

I figure I could take my time driving to NC and do some serious sight seeing on the way. There's so many places I haven't been-- I don't know what a prairie looks like. Or plains. And hills for that matter (mountains are different apparently). I've never seen land so flat that you can see the city that is about 25 miles away but it looks about 5 miles away. Most of all, I've never had a warm Christmas. Or a fairly dry winter. Sunny spring? Fugetaboutit. I don't know it's like not to live on the coast or have a giant body of water less than 10 minutes away.
I think it could be quite an experience.
(1) money. I have a great savings but I'd hate to spend money on such play especially in such hard economic times. How could I cut costs along the way? Maybe camp, sleep in the car, couch surf, use friend/family resources, etc. Also, jobs are scarce at my destination and I'd like to work at least a little if I'm going to stay with Arley for an extended period of time.
(2) college. I'm not getting any younger and college is not getting any cheaper. I have no idea what I want to study (still) so I am using that as an excuse for the further delay.
(3) safety. Of course I'd love to bring at least one gun with me but all states have different rules regarding carry. Some states allow guns in the car that are in a case and not loaded. Some allow loaded guns in the car but still must be in a case. What good does an unloaded gun do me? Then of course I have to be concerned about my stuff being stolen on the way... like my car loaded with all my crap.
(4) health. I wont have healthcare and I'll be unemployed so injury could be more serious on the road than at home. Not to mention mental health-- will I be okay without my friends and family?
Although I have a few others, those are my main concerns. The upside is that I'll be able to see Arley, the country, and possibly a great place for future residence. I love Washington and everything but do you ever feel like you just want to escape? I get real tired of seeing people I used to know. And liberals.
And that's my debate and dilemma. Should I go? Not? How do I know what is the right thing to do? At least I have some time to think about it.

Apparently this has been forgotten about.
Anyway, I just wanted to share my disdain for those rotten people of Seattle who lead the way of anti-Americanism in favor of pro-everybody-else-especially-those-who-hate-us-because-they-are-just-misunderstood-and-need-a-hug-from-Obama. It's sad that the people of Sri Lanka have to suffer but I hate to break it to you but... we do not live in a Utopian world. Nor will we ever.
Ugh, I'm so disgusted. Read the article, I'm done ranting here.

Earth Day Sucks
There I said it. Note I didn't say the Earth sucks. I like living here. But "Earth Day" strikes me as a holiday for left wing politics, nothing more. Okay, maybe there's a dose of pagan Earth worship involved for some, but I think most of it is leftist politics. And it tends to lead to apocalyptic scenarios that scare children. I say Halloween is enough for that.
It's funny that when Christians bring up the "War on Christmas"--the effort to secularize all things Christmas--there seems to be an increasing attempt at making Earth Day more pure... and demanding that purity from others.
Sorry Earth Day, I'll continue to honor Creation every time I see the sun set, and every time I see the Olympics tower over the horizon like some kind of mythical wall. I'll revere the wild as I hike through the forests hunting, becoming a part of nature and learning anew the value of what I eat. I'll continue to look down from atop the peaks of mountains across the northwest and marvel at how the valleys below look so painfully beautiful it seems as though they must have been directly carved by the hands of a loving God. And I won't forget that man is a part of that creation.
And when it comes to man, it's the free market system that has made our lives easier, freer, cleaner, healthier, and more creative. And I don't think Earth Day does a thing to honor that.
Celebrate "Earth Day" tonight with a free movie appropriately warning of the dangers of blind environmentalism. The information on how to go is below the trailer to the movie.

This was an incredibly respectful event. How can the leftists think that we are the rabid extremists? Last time I checked, it's always the lefty events that have crime and disruption. I'm reading the book Slouching Towards Gomorrah and just finished chapter two about the incredibly violent protests of the 60s.
Anyway, we chanted "USA!" and whooped, hollered and booed but no one started fights, started fires, turned cars, spit on opposing sides, or littered. The cops actually looked a little bored.
Right after the event was declared finished, the YR gang went up stage to sing the National Anthem... and to show off my sign of course :)
My sign :)

Anyway, I still love that store and often shop there. Not only does the store closing make me sad but the fact that it's another 1600 jobs lost according to www.q13fox.com. What I mean is, this is hitting home now and I'm worried. What will happen to me? My dad is already laid off and it's only a matter of time before my mom loses her job and my brother can't even get a job.
I suppose if SHTF I could go hippie and live of the "fatta the land."

Researchers claim food also speeds up the metabolism helping the body get rid of the booze more quickly.
Elin Roberts, of Newcastle University's Centre for Life said: "Food doesn't soak up the alcohol but it does increase your metabolism helping you deal with the after-effects of over indulgence. So food will often help you feel better.

My dad received an email from a gun company saying the the ban on fully automatic guns has been lifted but was unable to find any more information on said lifted ban. He thinks it's an April Fools day joke.
I hate this day.

The Nine Principles
1. America is good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
|12 Values |
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

No I'm not so clever as to come up with this on my own. Sent to me via email by my cool grandma.
Not long ago I read a joke. It said all the politicians running for president are promising change to the American people. We send them billions and billions of tax dollars and they send us the change.
We used to have a strong dollar...Politicians changed that.
Marriage used to be sacred... Politicians are changing that.
We used to be respected around the world...Politicians changed that.
We used to have a strong manufacturing economy...Politicians changed that.
We used to have lower tax structures...Politicians changed that.
We used to enjoy more freedoms...Politicians changed that.
We used to be a large exporter of American made goods ... Politicians changed that.
We used to teach patriotism in schools…Politicians changed that.
We used to educate children in schools…Politicians changed that.
We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship...Politicians changed that.
We used to have affordable food & gas prices...Politicians changed that, too.
One could go on and on with this list.
What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change that as well, if you will elect them.
When, oh when, is
The trouble is,
When will we wake up?
Tomorrow may be too late. When will
What is needed is for the constitution to be amended to limit all Senators and Representatives to TWO terms in office like the president.
Oh, by the way, no big pension either, social security just like the rest of us. Being a politician shouldn't be a person’s life work but rather a call to service then back to being an honest hard working citizen.

But there is one thing-- not a nanny can be found. I tuned into every conversation at the open gym time at the CC today and every single person referred to themselves as mom, dad, or grandma. I put an ad on craigslist.com and got one real response and one "pay for a nanny group" response. Oh well. The house is huge and with things to do in the area, we aren't exactly dying for immediate playmates.
Guess I'll have to try to make friends with 40 year old moms in yoga pants.

The first fews months of working in Seattle were ok. The commute was hard but I managed. It took me about 8 months to get used to the commute during which I put on a tremendous amount of weight that I argue sprouted from my extreme exhaustion from 2.5 hours a day of driving related stress. I was tired all the time. I had hoped to move into Seattle sharing the idea of many outsiders of "if you're going to live near Seattle, you should live IN Seattle at least once." But the more I got to know the city, the more I hated it. The election didn't help. Oh my what a horrible time to work in Seattle. Obama bumper stickers popped up on 70 percent of the cars. There were regular mini-protests against McCain, Palin and the rest of the Republican party. Cars were being assaulted and I was being flipped off. The beautiful city took on a doomsday gloom in the middle of summer. I hated every moment.
However after the election the rabid liberals calmed down as their savior had won and in turn, I calmed down. My feelings mellowed and I began to enjoy the city again. I became closer with my liberal nanny friends, no longer fearing that the topic of politics would come up and I no longer wanted the whole damn place to burn. I've enjoyed the parks, community centers, U Village, the Starbucks 5 blocks away, and Northgate Mall. I have been regularly seeing a few nannies for the past six months to a year and loved being able to watch their nanny kids grow.
Overall, it's been a fun 14 months in Seattle. I feel fortunate that my car never got broken into or vandalized and that I managed not to scare away my nanny friends. I was able to go to the zoo, aquarium, children's museum, and science center, places I would otherwise not have gone.
So here I am once again analyzing my love/hate relationship with Seattle. Yes, I hate the politicians and most of the people, but to hate it entirely would say that I got nothing out of it and that it was a wasted year of my life. I learned a lot. The commute resulted in me listening to talk radio, educating me on politics which ultimately led me to reestablish my conservative roots and, just as important, led me to the decision to buy guns. :) Working in Seattle also made it convenient to join in the Young Republican happy hour meetings which again, something I would not have done in the first place due to proximity. The commute also led to a better relationship with my sister with all the free and uninterrupted time I had to chat with her (but even with all those hours, I was still never able to convince her of the name Axel). :)
Tomorrow I say good bye to the city but not for good. I hate Seattle but not without a morbid affection for it. Nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to stay.

Free speech is one thing, lying and slander are another. We shouldn't need a law like this and it's sad that we are at the point where we are demanding it. Obama needs to take special note of this law for his next campaign... which he'll probably start up pretty soon...
Lawmakers want to ban lying on the campaign trail
Washington state lawmakers are trying to
reinstate an old law that prohibited lying in political campaigns.
The state's previous ban on campaign lies was tossed out by the
state Supreme Court in 2007, as a violation of the First Amendment.
Yesterday, the state House approved a new version of the ban, on
a 92-2 vote. The bill would ban false statements about a candidate
for public office, if the statement is libelous or defamatory and
committed with actual malice.
Supporters of the bill say it will clean up elections. But
opponents worry that it's still not up to legal standards for
protecting free speech.

President Barack Obama has turned fearmongering into an art form. He has repeatedly raised the specter of another Great Depression. First, he did so to win votes in the November election. He has done so again recently to sway congressional votes for his stimulus package.
In the last year, the U.S. economy shed 3.4 million jobs. That's a grim statistic for sure, but represents just 2.2% of the labor force. From November 1981 to October 1982, 2.4 million jobs were lost -- fewer in number than today, but the labor force was smaller. So 1981-82 job losses totaled 2.2% of the labor force, the same as now.
Job losses in the Great Depression were of an entirely different magnitude. In 1930, the economy shed 4.8% of the labor force. In 1931, 6.5%. And then in 1932, another 7.1%. Jobs were being lost at double or triple the rate of 2008-09 or 1981-82.
Auto production last year declined by roughly 25%. That looks good compared to 1932, when production shriveled by 90%. The failure of a couple of dozen banks in 2008 just doesn't compare to over 10,000 bank failures in 1933, or even the 3,000-plus bank (Savings & Loan) failures in 1987-88. Stockholders can take some solace from the fact that the recent stock market debacle doesn't come close to the 90% devaluation of the early 1930s.
Now his transcripts from his recent town hall meeting in Indiana.
Economists from across the spectrum have warned that if we don't act immediately, millions more jobs will be lost, and national unemployment rates will approach double digits. More people will lose their homes and their healthcare. And our nation will sink into a crisis that, at some point, we may be unable to reverse.
Where's his hopenchange rhetoric now? Read on.
Now I'm not going to tell you that this bill is perfect. It isn't. But it is the right size, the right scope and has the right priorities to create jobs that will jumpstart our economy and transform it for the 21st century.
I also can't tell you with 100% certainty that everything in this plan will work exactly as we hope. But I can tell you with complete confidence that endless delay or paralysis in Washington in the face of this crisis will bring only deepening disaster.And that is why I hope Congress passes it as soon as humanly possible, so we can get to work creating jobs, helping families and turning our economy around.
So here we have a bill that may or may not work, may or may not create jobs and the world will end if congress doesn't pass it immediately. Congress did pass it so Princess Pelosi could make a PR appearance in Rome and.... things haven't changed. So what was the rush? Why did we need it passed right then and there if it may or may not work but it will save the world.

These are very appropriate for what's going on these days.
When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
And finally, a very interesting quote. In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

In case you didn't catch that, she said 500 million Americans out of a job. We have about 300 million people in America. Hmm. Take that you Democrat ass, everybody misspeaks. So shut up about Bush already unless you want to say that Pelosi is as dumb as Bush.

Kids mimic parents. You can't expect "world peace" if you pass down your hate and disrespect (and partisan political views) to children. Libs didn't like or respect Bush-- sure, that's ok. But rather than calmly and rationally talked to their children, and adults for that matter, they rage and protest, spewing out ungodly things that teach the opposite of world peace. If only more people would examine and criticize themselves as much as they do others...

This is an actual ad that was off to the side of my facebook page. What a disgrace! When I decided to investigate what the site said, to my absolute horror, the first line said, "Get the money the Government owes you." Oh dear, this is not good. We are not entitled.
And for the ad...
