Ok, pay attention all of you technology gurus!  (just kidding) 

How may times have you heard of your friends and relatives getting hacked or opening messages that contain viruses? I’ve heard quite a few, myself. Fortunately for most of you, you are wise to the scams that are lurking on the interweb and you try your best to avoid them. You’ve done a good job at keeping your information out of the hands of bad guys, mostly by limiting the number of people that you allow to have your information. Then, in steps the federal government.

 That can’t be good. 

In the wonderful government bail out of our economy…you know, the one that didn’t work…there was a ton of money allocated to set up a system of maintaining your health records electronically. In reality, it’s a noble idea that would lend itself to making your critical care information available to a doctor that may save your life one day. The money made available was to help local primary care doctors get this system moving without a lot of out-of-pocket expense to them. Guess what? Well, use your head…the government is involved. 

Houston Neal, a writer over at, has written a wonderful piece about the action, or lack of, that this program has taken so far.  According to Houston, we have a problem. He says there are some flaws with the program. I say…Imagine that! A flaw with a government boondoggle program!  Anyway, here’s his beef with it: 

      1. The doctors aren’t moving very fast on it. 

      2. The free market already has the things the morons in government say they want to create.

        3.The system limits free market competition, typical of the socialist Obama government.

        4.The regional centers won’t get doctors to usage fast enough…translated, the government is slow as molasses.

 5. The socialists can’t staff the regional centers fast enough.

In short, we have another broken program from a broken program. Does that make sense? It does if you follow government policy and have experience in government programs. They just don’t work. 

Keeping that in mind, let’s get back to the original thought. Do you want your government creating a central repository of all of your medical information that may one day save your life? I say, ”NO”, because the government has never saved anything. 

Your thoughts?

Terrorist On The Payroll!

The America-destroying insanity of the left continues unabated, as the Islamists and their sympathizers shamefully use our Constitution and Bill of Rights against us, and the wicked few in power facilitate their success in doing so.  

On Monday evening, I was listening to Jeff Kuhner, who was filling in for Michael Savage on the Savage Nation radio program, and Jeff was talking about a news story linked off of Dr. Savage’s website.  I almost dropped the dish I was washing when he said that the Fort Hood Muslim murderer, Nidal Hasan, who shot and killed 13 soldiers and one unborn baby and wounded 32 others, is still on the military payroll!  I was floored. 

After Hasan’s ghastly and treacherous attack last November, I put him out of my mind, assuming he would be dealt with swiftly and justly, but I should’ve known better.  From the first pull of the trigger, he officially declared himself an enemy combatant of America, and in a sane military, he would’ve been immediately stripped of his position as a major in the Army.  In my mind’s idea of a sane military, since the evidence of his evil deed was indisputable, he would have been given a speedy trial establishing his guilt, then he would have been summarily dispatched down to Allah.  It’s too bad those who took him down that day weren’t better shots, because we could’ve been spared further grief from this enemy of our country. 

So that was Monday evening.  Then on Tuesday, the news comes out that the New York City Landmarks Commission in lockstep with the Manhattan Community Board, denied landmark status to the Burlington Coat Factory building, thereby clearing the way for its demolition and construction of the new mosque tower of Muslim victory overlooking Ground Zero.  That’s two blows in two days against America. 

I’m sick of listening to pansy leftists clamoring about freedom of religion.  This is not a freedom of religion issue.  I realize that this group of Islamists who are champing at the bit to build this trophy mosque can “legally” build it if all laws, approvals, codes and whatever other red tape issues are in order.  Technically they can, but that doesn’t make it right.  These people behind this mosque are lying when they say they want this to be a center of multi-religious cooperation and education between Islam and the West.  That’s a lie, and they know it. 

There’s no reason that they must build there; in fact, there are almost 3000 reasons why they shouldn’t!  They’re making a bold statement of victory in the spot where Islam’s deluded followers murdered so many of our friends, family and fellow countrymen.  We will not forget that.  And I’m not going to back down from speaking the truth about this evil plan. 

These people are creeping their way into America’s system, and they’re well down the road to positioning themselves in establishing sharia law here in America.  They’ll do it bit by bit.  They’ll start by demanding special banking rules that apply only to them and are in line with sharia finance laws.  They’ll try to set court precedents by defending themselves against criminal activity by claiming what they did was not a crime, but their Islamic religious practices—freedom of religion, don’t you know, you dumb suckers!  We’ve seen numerous “honor” killings in our country already.  Don’t think for a minute this is going to get better with time. 

I know the people of this country have the will to resist and push back the Islamists, but I don’t believe those in power do, with only a few exceptions.  Just look at these two cases alone.  The Manhattan Community Board voted almost unanimously to allow the mosque project to proceed, and the Landmarks Commission voted unanimously not to stop them.  Mayor Michael Bloomberg, like a blind man, sees no problem with it whatsoever and insults those who oppose it.  The people in support of this despicable project try to downplay the opposition by implying only a few 9-11 families are against the proposed mosque.  That’s a load of garbage!  If we had nationwide polling on this issue, I would wager a staggeringly high number of Americans vehemently oppose this atrocious move by the Islamists. 

And what about Nidal Hasan?  Who are the yellow-bellied cowards high up in the military who have refused to immediately eject him from the service and who have postponed what should be an open and shut case?  I’m not a member of the military with knowledge of its inner workings, but I know when justice is being derailed.  When this murdering subhuman is still collecting $6000 a month and is still apparently eligible for a $15,000 a year “incentive pay” bonus, something is terribly wrong with the picture.  Has the leadership of our military lost its will to fight for what’s right?  What’s worse, is the dirt bag’s lawyer is complaining that his “client” is being discriminated against because banks are refusing to cash his paychecks.  Oh, the poor thing! 

It’s terribly outrageous that those in positions of power seem oblivious to the deviousness and the horrendous criminal activity of the Islamists that have infiltrated our society.  Are those in power actually afraid of the Islamists?  Is that what it is?  Or is this more of a business deal with them?  Don’t tick off the Saudis!  We like our business relationship!  Whatever the reason is for the leadership’s groveling before the Islamist lobby, it has to stop, or our goose will be cooked, and I’m not kidding. 

I’d better go ahead and wrap this thing up before I really say something.

FOX News is reporting that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has issued an apology, “”on behalf of this entire administration” to the Agriculture Department official forced to resign two days ago over a brief video clip that showed her making racial remarks. A video of those remarks can be seen below.

Gibbs said a “disservice” and an “injustice” had been done to Sherrod. He went further and said, “”Members of this administration, members of the media, members of different political factions on both sides of this have all made determinations and judgments without a full set of facts. Without a doubt, Ms. Sherrod is owed an apology.”

Mr. Gibbs, your justice department HAD a FULL SET OF FACTS when it decided not to pursue charges against the Black Panthers that were caught on tape interfering with the voting process, specifically threatening white voters. Where is MY apology for not pursuing that case? I forgot…I’m white.

The video clip below shows Sherrod telling a story about how she didn’t give a white farmer her “full” help. She has been quoted in the media as saying the incident happened 24 years ago and that the story was meant to show how she learned from her mistakes.

OK, readers, let’s reverse this situation. Had she been white, and the farmer black, would it have been an acceptable explanation?

What about the while police officer that Obama bashed, before he invited him to “beer night”? Was there ever an apology after Obama told the whole world that, “The Cambridge police acted stupidly”. It appears that when this black woman acted stupidly, she receives no scolding from the White House, but rather an apology.

How convenient. Now go ahead, liberal lefties, call me a racist because I am pointing our facts…truths…something the left isn’t used to hearing.

Screwing America Since 1922

With Congress’ strong-armed passage of the unconstitutional and very unpopular health care reform bill, the radical left is puffed up to a frenzy with the desire to see their America-killing policies enacted.’s Aaron Klein, along with Brenda J. Elliot, has written yet another well-researched piece exposing The Democratic Socialists of America’s plan to use “Obamacare” to extinguish private-sector insurance companies, among other diabolical schemes. Aaron Klein reports:

“A socialist organization with close ties to Barack Obama has outlined a plan to turn the president’s health-care legislation into a government-run system that will ultimately eliminate private insurance companies.
Obama’s health-care bill ’should create millions of new stakeholders in a health-care system governed by democratically established rules rather than by the fiats of private insurers,’ wrote Frank Llewellyn, national director of Democratic Socialists of America.”

Klein writes that Llewellyn has called for a public information campaign to push “Obamacare” and socialized medicine. He quotes Llewellyn as saying,

“DSAers (Democratic Socialists of America members) in every state and city,” he said, “should be prepared to rebut distortions with letters to the editor and op-eds that talk about what socialism really is – and what true social democratic public provision would look like, particularly when health-care is the paradigmatic public good that markets, let alone for profit oligopolies, simply cannot justly and affordably supply.”

In other words, this Llewellyn guy wants a disinformation campaign to target people who tell the truth about the health care reform legislation and the evils of socialized medicine. He not only wants to target truth-tellers and take out the insurance companies, but also fellow Democrats who oppose single-payer and socialized health care. Klein quotes Llewellyn:

Progressives must now work to ensure that some conservative Democrats who did not support the final bill will be punished with primaries or even third-party challenges.

Llewellyn argued the passage of Obama’s health-care bill opens the door for other progressive policies, such as immigration reform, anti-corporate measures and an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He wrote:

“Passage of the bill does keep the door open for popular movements to demand strict financial regulatory reform, immigration reform, massive aid to states and localities, and a much-needed public jobs program.
DSA and the larger progressive movement must create street heat in favor of these anti-corporate measures, as well as for a just resolution to the foreclosure crisis, and an end to United States involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

So, there you go. As I said, these leftists are in a puffed-up frenzy, now that they’ve rammed the health care bill through Congress, so they’re ready to go full-bore with rest of their vile agenda. They want amnesty for illegal aliens, and more redistribution of wealth. They also want to abolish private ownership in America. Klein quotes DSA National Political Committee member David Green, who wrote in 2007 in the DSA’s publication the Democratic Left,

“Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production.”

Well isn’t that just swell?! Here is the enemy within our own country plotting to undo the United States as we know it. And, Obama is right up in there with these guys in the DSA. His ties with top DSA members extend back for years, as Klein documents in his piece.

These leftist radicals are coming at us from all sides. It’s as if they’re hoping to overwhelm us with the staggering number of battle fronts from which they’re assaulting us. Well, guess what! We’re not going to be overwhelmed. We’re not going to lie down under the volume of attacks against our great nation.
We’re going to stand together against these Marxist-socialist-communist-extremist enemies of America, and we will do our best to take them down from power and undo the damage they have done to our Constitution and country. Of course, it won’t be easy, and each of us is just one person, but if we stay engaged, and remain vocal, active and vigilant, we still have hope for stopping and reversing their hellish agenda.

Thanks to Aaron Klein of for another well-written piece that further exposes the radical left and their evil plans to pin America under the iron boot of their socialist dictates.

Danger Zone!

We are so distracted by the many battle fronts we face with just the Obama administration alone, that it’s hard to keep up with all that’s coming against us besides the enemies of America within our own government, for instance, the Mexican border violence and stealth invasion of our country by millions of people from south of the border.

The enemy without has been creeping into our country through the southern border for years now, enabled by the politicians that swore to protect our country from enemies foreign and domestic. Like most of our politicians, Mexico is not truly our friend, regardless of what pap the Washington elite wishes to feed us. If Mexico were our friend, why would they be flooding our country with illegal invaders that include, not just Mexicans and Central and South Americans, but also Muslim terrorists? Why would the Mexican government and military basically look the other way while drug cartels wage war at our border? Why would the Mexican government go after Arizona’s anti-illegal alien legislation, as if it’s any of their business?
Democrats, and even some Republicans, are actively enabling the illegal alien invasion of our country from the south. They refuse to enforce our border. The Democrats are desperate to make illegal aliens “legal” in order to ensure a huge additional Democrat voting bloc. Now, we hear that the Obama administration may be considering using presidential executive authority to bypass Congress and basically grant amnesty to the illegal aliens in our midst.

This comes on the heels of a story that was reported at the beginning of June in the Houston Chronicle. According to the Chronicle:

“An alleged plot by a Mexican drug cartel to blow up a dam along the Texas border — and unleash billions of gallons of water into a region with millions of civilians — sent American police, federal agents and disaster officials secretly scrambling last month to thwart such an attack, authorities confirmed…

Whether or not the cartel, which is known to have stolen bulk quantities of gunpowder and dynamite, could have taken down the 5-mile-long Falcon Dam may never be known since the attack never came to pass. It may have been derailed by a stepped-up presence by the Mexican military, which was acting in part on intelligence from the U.S. government, sources said.”

The story says that the Zeta drug cartel wanted to blow up the Falcon dam, not to terrorize civilians, but to get back at a rival cartel. I’m sitting here wondering how blowing up an important dam along the Texas-Mexico border would “get back” at a rival cartel. But, it seems to me a perfectly logical thing that a terrorist enemy of America would do. Messing with our water supply–now there’s a subject close to the heart of terrorists.

According to the International Boundary and Water Commission, the Falcon dam is the “lowermost major multipurpose international dam and reservoir on the Rio Grande.” The dam, which serves a nearby community, is also used to run a hydroelectric plant, control floodwaters, and provide agricultural and drinking water.

The story only focuses on the Zeta drug cartel being responsible for the bomb plot, and reports that the cartel apparently warned residents on the Mexican side of the border to evacuate the area near the dam prior to the planned bombing.

Do you suppose the Zeta cartel could be working with Muslim terrorists here? The story makes absolutely no mention of Muslim involvement, but I have read reports of Mexican drug cartels working with Muslim terrorists who are attempting to gain illegal entry into the United States. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that this bomb plot may have been conceived by Muslim terrorists, and is being blamed solely on the Zeta cartel by Homeland Security.

I see this story has been pretty much buried by the media. This administration certainly does not want this bomb plot on an American-Mexican dam to be all over the news shows, because it would be bad for their illegal alien amnesty business. Coming at a time when Obama appears to be poised to make yet another unconstitutional power grab in declaring by fiat that illegal aliens are suddenly “legal,” this border dam bomb plot is very bad for business, indeed!

Whether the Zeta cartel acted alone in hatching the bomb plot or with a little help from some Muslim terrorist friends, the point remains that we need American troops on our border with Mexico, and they need to secure it and treat it as what it actually is—a border between two nations! Stop this wicked invasion of our country!

According to this report from WDSU-TV, the federal government is shutting down the dredging that was being done to create protective sand berms in the Gulf of Mexico. The berms are meant to protect the Louisiana coastline from oil. But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department has concerns about where the dredging is being done.

Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser has sent a letter to President Barack Obama, pleading for the work to continue. Nungesser said the government has asked crews to move the dredging site two more miles farther off the coastline.

“Once again, our government resource agencies, which are intended to protect us, are now leaving us vulnerable to the destruction of our coastline and marshes by the impending oil,” Nungesser wrote to Obama. “Furthermore, with the threat of hurricanes or tropical storms, we are being put at an increased risk for devastation to our area from the intrusion of oil.”

Nungesser has asked for the dredging to continue for the next seven days, the amount of time it would take to move the dredging operations two miles and out resume work.

Apparently there is a plan being considered by President Obama to provide a mass Amnesty for the nation’s 11 million illegal aliens. Some United States Senators have been made aware of this plan and have penned a letter to the President asking him to explain, led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). The plan would allow Janet Napolitano to provide an amnesty if they can’t secure enough votes for a bill in the Senate.

The letter sent to the President, pictured here, asks for clarification on the use of deferred action or parole for illegal aliens. The executive orders are normally used only in special cases, but if 60 votes can’t be secured in the Senate to pass a mass Amnesty, the Administration may use the discretionary actions as an alternative.

Here is the text of the letter signed by Sens. Grassley, Hatch (R-Utah), Vitter (R-La.), Bunning (R-Ky.), Chambliss (R-Ga.), Isakson (R-Ga.), Inhofe (R-Okla.), and Cochran (R-Miss.).

No Answers, No Solutions...Our President!

We figured he would do it, and he did. On Tuesday, Barack Obama used the Gulf oil spill to push another part of his radical, leftist agenda. In his first-ever Oval Office address to the nation, he demanded that we all embrace his brave new clean-energy world, whether we like it or not.

I’m often glad that I don’t own a television, because I’m certain I would break it if I had to listen to Obama and watch him at the same time. As it was, my husband and I listened to his speech on the radio, and we did quite a bit of yelling during the speech. As I recall, “Liar!!” was one of the words we yelled most often, and here on the air, I cannot relate some of the other choice words we used as well.

The oil spill is playing right into the hands of the Obama administration as they seek to shove their kneecap and tax through Congress, against the will of the people. Global warming has been clearly shown to be the complete hoax that it is, so they need another disaster to scare us into compliance with their money and freedom-robbing agenda. Or, if they can’t scare us, they’ll just use the oil spill as an excuse and do it anyway.

I know that nobody wants to hear this, but I am not, and probably never will, be fully convinced that the Deepwater Horizon explosion was just an accident. I even wrote an article about it that is still making the rounds out there on the Internet.

Regardless of the cause, however, this administration is certainly not letting this crisis go to waste. Obama wasted no time in pointing out that because of this incident, he felt compelled to shut down our drilling in the Gulf. Why? There is no sense at all in shutting down our production. It’s a stupid order that only hurts us. He turns around and complains that we spend so much money importing foreign oil when he’s shut down our own Gulf! He says he’s doing it for the safety of the workers. That’s a load of tripe, and he knows it. Oil has been safely drilled in our Gulf for decades.

He also claimed we have a limited supply of what he calls “fossil fuels.” That’s simply not true. I read where researchers have found evidence that oil is not made from fossils, but instead, is naturally produced by the earth, which would mean we have a virtually unlimited supply. Obama also said we’re running out of places to drill on land and in shallow water, and that’s why the drilling is going on out there in the deep water. There’s another lie. The reason drilling is taking place in deep water is because the eco-wacko power groups have drummed oil companies off shore. The environmentalists have succeeded in pressuring the feds to prevent oil drilling in so very many places on land in our country that could easily be tapped.

Obama demands that our country make, as he puts it, “a transition away from fossil fuels.” Can anyone tell me why? Our whole country runs on oil, natural gas and coal, with very few exceptions. It’s how we live, and there’s nothing wrong with it, and there are no practical alternatives! He insists that the energy companies should invest more than, as he says, “a fraction of what the high-tech industries” spend on research and development. Why should they do this?

Energy companies are in the business of making and providing the power and fuel to run our nation. It’s up to them if they want to branch off and spend their profits on research and development of alternative energy sources. And, whether they do or not is certainly no business of the White House and Congress.

Obama told BP to put their money into an escrow account that a so-called third-party, independent entity will distribute to people hurt by the oil spill. Yeah, right. So BP agrees to do this at the White House meeting yesterday. And, who is the independent entity who will oversee the funds? It’s none other than Kenneth Feinberg, Obama’s pay czar. Yes, of course, that’s someone who is very independent of the Obama administration! Right.

Here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we’re still seeing court prosecution of Katrina money fraud cases. Can you imagine the fraud that’s going to occur, and is surely already occurring with BP’s money? Suddenly everyone and his brother are going to turn out to be “fishermen” or “shrimpers” who want some cash. BP will be fortunate if they’re not bled dry by this administration.

So, in his speech, Obama shamefully capitalized on the Gulf oil disaster to push his evil plans for our country. He may be fooling a few people with his lies and empty words, but he’s not fooling me and many millions more of us who see right through this pretender, this Demander-in-Chief.

Can November possibly get here soon enough?

Kagan The Horrible

It’s taken me a little while to get to Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, but here it is. What’s with these hideous women that Obama keeps nominating to the high court? Of course, we know that liberals will appoint liberals, and Obama has certainly knocked this one out of the park. Kagan is not just liberal. She’s a radical socialist.

I’m sure you’ve read and heard quite a bit about her by now, and there will be more to come. The demoncats in Washington are now wanting to fast-track her hearings to this month. They’re desperate to get her confirmed before the November elections.

World Net Daily is hosting a letter campaign to the Senate, and they sum up Kagan pretty nicely in this note, which the public can have sent to every Senator on Capitol Hill.

Here’s the letter:

“In a few months, the America people will have a chance to speak at the polls again. Almost every analyst and every public opinion survey suggests the electorate is angry about the direction of the country. I strongly urge you not to show contempt for the will of the people and the Constitution by confirming the Supreme Court nomination of Elena Kagan.

“Kagan is not what Americans want and she is not what the country needs.

“At a time when federal central control is strangling the American economy, she calls for more regulatory authority not just in Washington, but for the president himself.

“At a time when American security is facing internal and external threats and our nation is still engaged in two foreign wars simultaneously, she advocates banning military recruitment on campuses because of her compulsion to see open homosexual behavior flaunted in the ranks.

“At a time when Americans have been stripped of their ability to write their own laws protecting the lives of the unborn, she advocates the creation of task forces to investigate and prosecute peaceful pro-life activities.

“At a time when Americans are recognizing the unique blessings of their Constitution, she advocates the consideration of foreign laws in shaping Supreme Court rulings.

“For all of these reasons and more we will surely learn about in the days ahead, please reject the nomination of Elena Kagan.”

That’s the World Net Daily letter, and every member of the Senate needs to hear that message.

The World According To Kagan

Think she’s not a radical Socialist? Read on. The following are quotes from the Senior Thesis of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, written and submitted to the History Department of Princeton University in 1981. The following quotes are used for educational purposes and for use by the readers as such. Any other use may constitute copyright infringement…and we all know socialists wouldn’t approve of that, even if it is a capitalist concept.

From page 127:

“Americans are more likely to speak of…. capitalism’s glories than of socialism’s greatness.”

“We must look further to find the causes of U.S. socialism’s demise.”

“…American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope.”

“….the SP(Socialist Party) exhausted itself  forever and further reduced labor radicalism….. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America.”
