It's quiet amusing that folks will assume things if one forget's to log on via the tea party page, frankly it just made me fall out of my chair...Yes I'm aware that birth control is used to prevent an egg and sperm from coming together to form a human...It was funny due to how condescending (forgot who it was not important) came off as...Actually I'm on lo dose birth control myself for other medical reasons and do not agree for myself personally with the use of IUD's (I think that's what they are called?) and The Morning After Pill...Plan B eh no thanks...Now it's over the counter?! Uh what?!

First of all regardless of the moral aspects of that, health wise it's dangerous due to the high amounts of birth control in the pill. It can cause internal bleeding in younger gals, not to mention there isn't an age restriction for it any longer? What? I get not wanting folks to know really I do; because I attended a program called Mercy Ministries for the self injury I used to struggle with, and I spoke with some young women who had taken that pill and had complications afterwards not to mention the spiritual complexities of guilt etc.

The answer really for myself has been my unshakable faith, and facing the things struggled with as well as not avoiding them...The culture of avoidance has gotten many where they are now, and baby steps in a positive direction add up even over a months time...The culture of what's good for you is not good for me and it's all relative has frankly got to stop if any lasting change is to be had...

I spoke of this in an earlier blog post, change comes from first the individual then a group of folks of like mind, not the other way around...

Feel free to post your thoughts below, Thanks for reading :)

The Truth Pass it On...

          Pass It On....

 

           I've been saying this for years, but this email probably explains it better and more clearly. This is NOT a political message but rather a clarification to remind us all of the correct facts.

           Remember that on October 9, 2007, 11 months before our "economic crisis" occurred (that was actually created), the Dow hit it's highest point ever. Closing at 14,164.53 and reaching 14,198.10 intra-day level. 2 days later Unemployment was steady at 4.7%.

            Things were already being put in place to create the havoc we've been experiencing since then. It all started as this email explains, on January 3, 2007.

            I'm sending this to each of you reguardless of your party preferences because I believe it is something you may not have considered.

            This tells the story, why Bush was so "Bad" at the end of his term.

             Don't just skim over this' it's not very long, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out!!!

              The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd, 2009.It was actually January 3rd. 2007, which was the day the Democrats took over the House and Senate. The very start of the 110th Congress.

              For those who are listening to the liberals saying that everything is "Bush's Fault", Think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.  (The Democrats Controlled Congress and The Senate for the entire last 2 years of Bush's final term.)

            At the time:

           

           The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

           GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

           Unemployment was 4.6%

           George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH!

           Remember the day...

           January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

            Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

             Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie- starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA! And who fought against reform of Fannie & Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress.

              So when someone tries to blame Bush. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"

              Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.

              Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.

              In that first year, they had to contend withGeorge Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush got somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

               For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

               And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all or these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

               If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets.

               If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is "I inherited a defecit I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."

 

            There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

 

      PLEASE DO YOUR PART!!!

What "WE THE PEOPLE" Can do...

I like to watch tv just like the next guy, but what I don't like paying for is the leftwing programming.  What if everyone united and made a commitment to just say no.  Call our cable, dish/direct TV subscribers and cancel our subscription at the same time coordinated buy all active teaparty members through the United States.

When asked why tell them to contact the primary teaparty spokesman.  I know me and my friends will do this what about you.  The teaparty spokesman could demand a teaparty channels just like the spanish speaking channel, but not pay for it or any of the leftwing channels.  That would hit them where it hurts and maybe they would start to recognize that the teaparty is just everyday American people with a hugh voice!!!!!

 

What do you think?????

So what? and Now what?

Two questions I always try to ask myself when self educating are "so what?" and "what now?"

For many years my friends and family have gathered around the dinner table and vented about the government getting out of control. For all of Bill Clinton's 8 years, that seemed to be all we did. At times I thought we were all kind of nuts, maybe a strange cell group that given the wrong kinda meat loaf would suddenly "turn rogue". However there was a closeness, an intamacy that we all experienced, knowing we were not alone. I remember times when new people would show up to dinner and we'd all get excited to find out they shared a lot of the same dissatisfactions we did. So we would re-hash all the same 'ol arguments with a lot of emphasis and visseral not really knowing who we were arguing with, being as we were all on the same side. I guess we could say it was iron sharpening iron. We all became experts at expressing our opinions about what was wrong with our country.

Well, now, a few years down the road, looking at this tea party movement, it would appear there were many dinner tables where people met at to discuss the status of the government and how it has become totally out of control. For years we've been talking about the "so what", but now, it seems we're asking "what now".

Erick Erickson wrote a good blog today on Redstate.com http://www.redstate.com/erick/2010/04/14/tea-party-movement-20/ where he was back-peddling a little, trying to explain his flippant remarks in his blog yesterday. For the most part I really enjoyed what he said today, but the following is what I've been asking myself and I believe many of you have been asking as well:

"But I go to tea party events all over the country and hear people say "Get involved," only to have actual tea party activists go home, email me, and ask the "how" that the person on stage never bothered to get to.

We must move beyond the protests and get to the fight. We are effective now. We should not settle. "

He goes on to list some very smart ways the average American can "get involved":

  • Learn how to be a better online activist.
  • Start paying attention to your local government.
  • Learn how to run for office and be a campaign strategist, whether or not you want to run or want to be a strategist. You will find the skills extremely useful.
  • Write letters to the editor of your paper.
  • Call in to local radio shows — not national, local.
  • Find candidates you like and support them, blog about them, promote them and fund them.
  • Stay connected to like minded souls in your community to know you are not alone — why I still like and support local tea party groups.
  • Become active in the political party of your choice. Change it from the inside, not the outside.
  • Learn to discern.
  • Above all else: remember that when the left attacks the tea party activists, they are attacking the foundation of America. Stop responding as an aggrieved tea party activist and start asking what part of the American way of life they have a problem with. "

I couldn't agree more, and would encourage all of you to follow through and not only do these things, but, pick one or two in particular and become an expert at them. Self governance takes people that are experts at all different kinds of skills. What good will it do if we are all just cookie cutter activists?

I would also like to add one to the list that we can all do. Like Glenn Beck says, we need to become an evangelist of this movement, we need to spread the word and invite others to come check it out. With that said, I hope to see you all the next tea party meet-up, you and someone you brought with you.

Executive Orders?? What is Obama up to??

Could this be coming? Has Obama and his admin got other plans for USA? From what I see, the non-transparency of government both in the house and senate and the Obama admin, We are at the mercy of the government, we had better react and save this country. As a military vet I will do everything in my power to help stop this corrupt administration. I will vote out in 2010 all who have failed us, but I can not do it alone , we have to have the sense of the people in great numbers.Executive orders like the ones below will be the end of our democratic republic if we do not rise up and say NO.. We have foreign armies in our country that overwhelm our own US Armies, this should bother every American.SUBJECT: Executive OrdersAPPLICABLE EXECUTIVE ORDERSThe following =Executive Orders=, now recorded in the Federal Register, and therefore accepted by Congress as the law of the land, can be put into effect at any time an emergency is declared:10995--All communications media seized by the Federal Government.10997--Seizure of all electrical power, fuels, including gasoline and minerals.10998--Seizure of all food resources, farms and farm equipment.10999--Seizure of all kinds of transportation, including your personal car, and control of all highways and seaports.11000--Seizure of all civilians for work under Federal supervision.11001--Federal takeover of all health, education and welfare.11002--Postmaster General empowered to register every man, woman and child in the U.S.A.11003--Seizure of all aircraft and airports by the Federal Government.11004--Housing and Finance authority may shift population from one locality to another.

"THE UNITED STATES SHALL GUARANTEE TO EVERY STATE IN THIS UNION A REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT, AND SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION; AND ON APPLICATION OF THE LEGISLATURE, OR OF THE EXECUTIVE (WHEN THE LEGISLATURE CANNOT BE CONVENED) AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE." "REGIONAL GOVERNMENT IS NOT A REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT!"Stated simply: the dictatorial power of the Executive rests primarily on three basis: Executive Order 11490, Executive Order 11647, and the Planning, Programming, Budgeting System which is operated through the new and all-powerful Office of Management and Budget.E.

Will the torment of a people who once proudly carried a flag of glory now wonder if their flag will be sold to the lowest bidder and their pledge turned into a sideshow of dead memories and worthless monuments of bygone days of grandeur?

We The People were born into greatness, because we were born into America, but will our children become those forlorn fools born into bureaucratic slavery?

However, all is not lost! We The People can reverse this horrible blight of National Socialism and save America.

We The People must not allow the Light of Liberty to be extinguished and the hope of freedom to grow dull. The Tea Party shall continue to hold high the torch of self-governance, we declare:

“The greatness of America shines in the darkest time from the most unlikely candlesticks” Steve Eichler

Many in the Tea Party have pledged their Life, Liberty and Sacred Honor to the true foundational beliefs infused into the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and other great American documents. Many Heroes are standing tall on the truths of the Holy Bible and the writings of those who have gone before them.

I believe this, do you?
“…….this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Gettysburg, Pennsylvania November 19, 1863-Abraham Lincoln.

I believe the Tea Party stands ready, knowing the future of our beloved nation rests squarely upon the shoulders of We The People.

It is the responsibility of all of 'We The People' to insure a continual new birth of freedom, to insure that all we hold dear shall not perish from the earth. Some may say the price of freedom is too costly. Some are willing to put up and shut up, are you one of those kind?

“When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Thomas Jefferson

Choose today whom you will serve! "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams

Are you willing to put up and shut up? Or, stand with us and say: Hell No! I want my Country back!

“The hour is dark for our Republic and the values we have held dear for over 233 years are fading. Now, more than ever, America needs heroes, men and woman of honor to take their stand for what is right. Are you one of those Citizens of honor?” Steve Eichler

As you read this, trillions of dollars are being primed to gush from our coffers. The Washington Fat Cats will spend like drunken sailors on a Friday night shore leave. Without rhyme or reason, a tsunami of taxpayer cash is already allocated for unrevealed repositories behind closed doors, readying themselves for the lining of secret pockets belonging to traitorous characters.

“As for me and my house, we shall stand for our American values, for what is right and wholesome.”
Dale Robertson – Founder and President of TeaParty.org

This is why I am a member of the Tea Party, what is your reason?

a.k.a. - 'Minuteman Steve'
