Happy Fourth of July!

Happy 4th of July!
Today, let us take the time to think about what America means to us.
For me, America is a country where we are free to speak our minds and go about our daily lives in a manner that is pleasing to us. America is full of people with brilliant ideas. And these people are the ones that make our country great.
Our country was founded on Christian ideals that were supposed to be carried throughout history. Do you know why America was founded? No, not because it supposedly had good beer and cheese--gah, somebody fell asleep during history class. Seriously, dude, it was founded because our fathers wanted religious freedom from the King of England. Our Founding Fathers were smart men equipped with determination. Hey, you try and start your own country and make it work! The going was tough, but, dang, these guys stuck through it--those winters must have been hell--and voila!
Something that I learned in history class this year that shocked me was America was originally run by socialism. Wanna know why we're not now?
Let's back up a we have all these farmers doing what they do best--farming--and they're contributing food and the necessities of life to a sort of "community offering bucket" (if you know what i mean.) And let's say, Farmer William gets injured and can't work for a few months, but after a while, his hamstring feels good as new. Well, he's realized just how easy it is to not work and still get all the food he and his wifey-pooh need. This starts a chain reaction, soon nobody, save for a few farms, are working and whadya know! There's no food! So, now they're cold, starving, and lazy. Hm...sound a wee bit like some folks on welfare, eh?
So after that, we became a Capitalist nation where everyone worked hard and made our nation prosper.
Life in America hasn't been easy. We've gone through numerous wars, depressions, and politicians that seem to care very little for the blessing that is America.
Yeah, you know who I'm talking about...Woodrow Wilson (okay, so maybe you didn't know I was thinking about that one) and Barack Hussein Obama (insert mm-mm-mm's here.)
But the best thing about America is we always pick ourselves back up and shake off the mistakes made by bad presidents/ politicians. There is not a doubt in my mind that whatever damage Obama does, we can correct most of it. Take the Health Care "Reform" for instance. Right after it was passed, numerous states with Republican governors sued. Granted, Democrats did not, but I think if we pitch a fight, something is going to happen. After all, we are Americans and we love this country and we don't want anything to happen to it. It is our bread and butter, our Lady Liberty, our motherland, our home, our life, our liberty, our country.

So as you watch fireworks today, don't just think about how pretty the colors are or how good those 8 hot dogs tasted, think about what our country has been through and how special it is. We are the only country with so much free speech that we can print papers and write blogs much like this one, expressing our opinions. We are a great country.
Be proud of your country, and no matter what the liberals say, America is beautiful.
God bless America!

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is Better Than the First Two! Oh My Vampires!

So, today I went to see "Eclipse." Say what you want, I loved it. People called it the best Twilight movie yet and I have to say, I agree 150%.
Maybe you have problems with the series, or maybe you're just not a fan of the "poorly-written" novels or the less-than-perfect acting. And I'm fine if you disagree, but just hear me out.
The movie just looked better. Sure, the acting still sucks, but it's better than it was, lemme say. Kristen Stewart plays Bella, a whiny-do-nothing who is torn between Jacob--a shape-shifting werewolf--and Edward--a tortured vampire--and constantly whips back and forth between the two. "Eclipse" was--and is--my favorite book, and now my favorite movie, however, in both Bella annoys the HECK out of me. I'm not ripping the books or movie, but her whimpy attitude was enough to make me gag. It's all "Oh, Jacob!" or "Oh, Edward!" And she proceeds to kiss both of them, just to make sure she's making the right choice by choosing Edward.
Robert Pattinson, that British dude who is everywhere, plays Edward Cullen--the tortued vamp I mentioned--has a much better hairstyle than the last two. And his eyebrows looked better. :)
Taylor Lautner--the shirtless werewolf--is probably the best actor out of the bunch. He doesn't make silly faces or brood into the distance. Believe me, I'm Team Edward, but Jacob's a little less goofy.
The rest of the cast looked amazing and really helped patch up the holes made by KStew's acting, or lack of. Very impressed...
GO SEE IT! And then comment your thoughts...:D

Poor Hils

Maybe it was something she didn't say.

Peruvian President Alan Garcia Perez walked out on Secretary Hillary Clinton on Monday during a joint news conference in Lima, Peru, creating an awkward moment for the secretary of state.

Garcia made a statement in Spanish, praising Clinton for being "a woman who represents modernity, a woman who has fought a virtuous struggle for women's rights for a very long time."

He then walked out of the room, leaving Clinton alone to wait for the translation of his comments and to make her own remarks to reporters.

"Well, first let me thank the president for his very kind hospitality today," she said without a hint of irony. Later, she apologized for "keeping him so late that he was behind in his schedule." Then Clinton excused herself, saying she had a meeting to attend.

Pedro Bravo, an official in the Peruvian embassy's political department, told that it's "not rare" for Peruvian leaders to meet the press individually. But he added he didn't know the details of Perez's ditching of Clinton.

Other officials in the Peru Embassy and officials in the U.S. State Department did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

Clinton was in Peru as part of her weeklong trip to Latin America and the Caribbean for the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), which bills itself as "the Western Hemisphere's premier multilateral organization."

In his statement, Garcia cited Clinton's work as first lady, advocating for women's rights in Beijing and her unsuccessful bid for health care overhaul.

"So we know that she has a calling to serve women, to serve the poor, to serve the people," he said. "And that is why we are very happy to have her here to show that this is – her presence here shows that our friendship will continue our friendship with Peru and the United States."

Former President Bill Clinton headed to Lima Tuesday to meet with Garcia and receive the keys to the city from the mayor, Luis Castaneda Lossio.(SOURCE)

haha, some people left comments under the article that were partially cruel, but somewhat comical. One person said "She must used to getting left at the Dance by Bill and Barry."
I don't really have anything to rant on here, but I just wanted to show you how Hils always comes across as quite a diva to me. Ya know, making him late for a meeting. That's not nice, missy.
I hope you didn't think I was just going to give you that mini post and call it good. Nah, I'm doing more than that. haha

Don't point fingers. Don't make excuses. Don't pass the buck.

That was the advice President Obama gave to a graduating high school class in Michigan Monday night -- advice that sent off an irony alert among Republicans who accuse the president of having "spent his tenure" doing exactly that.

Obama offered his guidance during the commencement speech at Kalamazoo Central High School.

"Don't make excuses. Take responsibility not just for your successes, but for your failures as well," he told the graduates. "The truth is, no matter how hard you work, you won't necessarily ace every class or succeed in every job. There will be times when you screw up, when you hurt the people you love, when you stray from your most deeply held values.

"And when that happens, it's the easiest thing in the world to start looking around for someone to blame. Your professor was too hard, your boss was a jerk, the coach was playing favorites, your friend just didn't understand. We see it every day out in Washington, with folks calling each other names and making all sorts of accusations on TV."

He told the students that "pointing fingers" and "blaming parents" and everyone else in their lives is not the road to follow.

Senate Republicans reacted quickly to the speech, sending out a "best-of" list of instances in which Obama was "looking around for someone to blame." The quotes showed Obama using Bush as a scapegoat for everything from the deficit to America's image abroad.

Obama over the past 17 months has selectively blamed the Bush administration for the big problems he now faces.

One of the president's favorite rhetorical devices is the figurative "mop" he uses to clean up what he says were the mistakes of his predecessor.

"I don't mind cleaning up the mess that some other folks made. That's what I signed up to do," he said at a Democratic fundraiser last October.

Obama even chalked up Republican Sen. Scott Brown's upset victory in the Massachusetts special election to Bush-directed outrage in January.

"The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office," Obama said in an interview with ABC News. "People are angry, and they're frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years." (source)

Hey, have I ever said Obama was a hypocrite?
I have? Oh, well.

Joking aside, Obama acts like he was multiple personality disorder. Like most dems in Washington...
Does he really think we're so stupid we won't remember all the times he been "Bush bashing." I mean, really?

Well, the unfortunate answer to that is...yes.

Like most dems in Washington, they seriously believe we don't pay attention to the news--unless we're watching CNN, of course--and don't read the paper. We are, after all, too stupid to take care of ourselves. The government needs to help us, of course. We're just idiots who've attended their schools and grown up in their controlled cities and states.
Of course, we don't know how to take live without them. Hm, I don't think so.

Yo, Obama, I was wondering, if you don't want students to blame other people, why are you blaming Bush? Oh, that's right, silly me. I forgot you're like a little child who doesn't know how to take responsibility for his actions. And like other democrats, you never want to fess up to your mistakes.

His inexperience is not only showing through here, but also in the gulf oil spill. His lack of emotion and actions only reminds me that he is seriously inexperienced, and was not prepared for this job.
He's never worked a job in his life, save for political occupations and ACORN volunteering.
So, therefore, he was no idea how to run a business! Huh, no wonder this isn't working out so purty. :D
I mean, he's more content to go play golf and skip along his merrily way instead of saving the land and the animals. I swear, PETA's always jumping up and down, ready to jump upon anyone who badmouths animals or breaks their rules, but here's Obama not doing anything for these poor animals, and do you see them getting after him?
Sure, they went after him for swatting a fly, but not when he refuses to save these animals? Uh, dude?

Back to the speech, he mentions not blaming parents in there. SOmething tells me he's kinda saying do the opposite of that. I mean, he blames other people, so why shouldn't we?
"Yeah, my job sucks, so I'll blame my parents for making me go get a job."
"Yeah, I'm flunking math, so I'll blame my teacher for making me read."
Doesn't that sound...immature?

Anyways, in all, I don't like this speech. Not because I don't like him, but there's something fishy 'bout it. I don't know, it just sounds kinda...informal, I suppose. He doesn't sound like a president during the speech, but more so a friend. And that's just...wrong, if you know what I mean.

Palin--wait, sorry, I need to mention that I'm no longer closing my posts with "Palin, Love, and Crowder." After I heard that she backed Terry Branstead for governor in Iowa, she lost my support. He is too moderate, which worries me that she is possibly "conforming" to the more Democratic side of the political spectrum. It's too bad; she seemed quite nice back in 2008.

So, without further ado, my new signature:

Kid Drank at a Baseball Game...No, Really?

Here I am again. Now that I'm out of school, you should be able to expect 2-3 posts a week. Hopefully! Shoot me an e-mail if you'd like an article or I haven't updated in a while. :)

A young child was caught on camera drinking from a beer bottle at a Philadelphia Phillies baseball game Sunday, reported.

Video of the unidentified child surfaced on Monday after the Phillies lost to the Padres on Sunday.

In two video shots taken from an official game broadcast, the blonde child is seen with a plastic beer bottle in his right hand, drinking from the bottle.

The child appears to be between three and four years old, and is also wearing a white Phillies home jersey.

Once the clips leaked out on the Internet, it set off another round of Phillies – and Philadelphia – bashing.

“Phillies fans are an illustrious bunch. In the past year, they have vomited, prostituted and been Tasered. Now it appears that childhood drinking can be added to the list,” said the Huffington Post blog.

“Drinking beers at 4-years-old, forced vomiting on people by age 21. Who would allow a toddler to drink a beer, at $9 a bottle, I’m keeping that beer to myself,” said another blogger on Ted Williams

The latest incident at the Phillies home ball park comes after two nationally publicized confrontations, where one fan vomited on six people, while another fan had to be Tasered by Philadelphia police on camera. SOURCE

I hardly see this as a humorous or laughing matter, but in a sense, it just shows how much people care about stupid little things like this. I dunno, is it really "breaking news?"
No, probably not.
Still, I think people enjoy poking their noses into other people's business and then making it into a huge deal.
Yo, back off, people!
Eh, whatever.

Obama Is a Hover Mother? Bahaha

How's it going, folks?
You may have heard about 'Bam's speech that's been, er, raising some eyebrows...
When I heard about it, I was seriously on the verge of puking...
No, it's not taxes. No, it's not a new bailout. It's his desire to restrict the access of information...meaning BLOGS! As in the one you're reading right now!

While knowledge is power, the information age could be too much of a good thing. That's the message some heard in President Obama's weekend commencement speech in which he bemoaned

Speaking at Hampton University in Virginia, the president raised alarms when he said "information becomes a distraction, a diversion" that is putting "pressure on our country and on our democracy."

The president suggested less is more when it comes to absorbing news content and urged graduates to take a skeptical eye toward news from blogs, cable television and radio as well as modern gadgets like iPods and PlayStations.

The class of 2010 is "coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter," the president said, earning an honorary doctorate of laws degree during the ceremony.

"And with iPods and iPads; and Xboxes and PlayStations -- none of which I know how to work -- (laughter) -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; it's putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy," he said.

But coming from a commander-in-chief known for his fondness for technology and skill at employing it to his political advantage, Obama's comments were seen as more than just a president's lament that the Kindle could someday replace the hardcover.

"Nobody (has) used the media more masterfully" than Obama, said Brent Bozell, president of the conservative Media Research Center. "Now he turns against certain elements of it because he doesn't need them anymore, he thinks."

Obama has endured some nasty rumors at the hands of the Internet. Blogs and comment pages continue to allege that the president has not been honest about his place of birth -- Hawaii -- or about his religion -- Christianity.

The White House has assiduously rebutted and marginalized those whisper campaigns.

"With so many voices clamoring for attention on blogs, and on cable, on talk radio, it can be difficult, at times, to sift through it all -- to know what to believe, to figure out who's telling the truth and who's not. Let's face it, even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience in that regard," he said.

Targeting cable, radio and blogs has become somewhat of a political sport of the Obama administration.

The president in February, as the health care debate was in a crescendo, urged Democratic senators to "turn off" their televisions. He singled out CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and blogs, urging lawmakers to get out of the "echo chamber." That was after the administration spent several weeks in the fall criticizing Fox News.

Last September, the president also used a string of major network and cable interviews to scold the media for playing up "outrageous" political comments.

Another odd moment came in March, when an e-mail sent to Senate staffers warned them not to visit The Drudge Report out of concern for a virus. At the time, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., alleged that "somebody" was intentionally trying to "discourage" people from visiting the Web site, which is highly influential in shaping daily news coverage.

Bozell said to prove his "sincerity" about media and technology gripes, Obama should delete his massive e-mail list and take his staff off TV.

"It's just posturing on his part," Bozell said. "He is trying to put himself in opposition to those forces to improve his status with the public." {source}

I seriously cannot wrap my idiotic teenage mind around this! The fact that he would have the nerve to try and even suggest something like that, gah.
This is just like Animal Farm! I swear to God, it's like they're just ripping pages right out of that book and trying to apply that to America.
In that book--which YOU HAVE TO READ, no joke--Napoleon (who's based upon Karl Marx, btw) and his like henchmen-esque people lie about the 7 commandments that they (the pigs) wrote out. Things on the list--that the animals thought--addressed things like: don't sleep in beds, don't drink alcohol etc. In truth, there was a little phrase that the pigs ended up adding to make the laws okay for them. Like: don't sleep in a bed with sheets, and don't drink alcohol in access. Because the animals couldn't read--preventing them from reading information--the rulers could change the truth, ya know, malipulate it.
See the connection here...Obama restricts the internet, the blogs, the news--*cough*foxnews*cough--and suddenly, whaddya know, he lies about what's really goin' on. Soon enough, we're taxed to Kingdom come and we have no control over anything.
Depressing, much?

This just shows that Obama has this uncontrollable to desire to, uh, control. He's like a, as I like to cal 'em, Hover Mother. They want to control every little aspect of everything.
"No, Sally, don't go there."
"No, Bill, don't touch that."
"No, Bob, don't talk to her."
"No, Edward, don't wear that."
"No, Bella, don't smell that."
You the idea--nice little Twlight reference in there, eh?--they tell everyone what to do, when to do it, what's true...blah, blah, blah.

I think that fits, don't you? Mother Obama...heck, in a few years, he'll be Saint Obama...Oh, I'm so gonna get hunted down for that. Anyhoo....

But, yeah. You get the idea.

I think we need to keep a very close eye on this, and see if the drops any more little hints.

Cinco De Mayo Isn't a Real Holiday? Say It Ain't So!

Hey people:
So, before I start my rant, I wanted to give a shoutout to the two newest followers of the blog: "Welcome."

Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas -- garments the school officials deemed "incendiary" on Cinco de Mayo.

The five teens were sitting at a table outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., on Wednesday morning when Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez asked two of them to remove their American flag bandannas, one of their parents told The boys complied, but were asked to accompany Rodriguez to the principal's office.

The five students -- Daniel Galli, Austin Carvalho, Matt Dariano, Dominic Maciel and Clayton Howard -- were then told they must turn their T-shirts inside-out or be sent home, though it would not be considered a suspension. Rodriguez told the students he did not want any fights to break out between Mexican-American students celebrating their heritage and those wearing American flags.

Dariano's mother, Diana, told she and parents of the other four students are now demanding an apology from officials and are considering a lawsuit.

"We want an apology," Diana Dariano said Thursday. "Who in the United States of America would have an issue with that? It's a sad, sad day."

Dariano said her son has at least four T-shirts with American flags that he wears often and did not try to cause any conflict at school.

"I'm more hurt than anything," she said. "It is so hurtful and disrespectful the way this has turned. These are American kids."

The boys told Rodriguez and Principal Nick Boden that turning their shirts inside-out was disrespectful, so their parents decided to take them home.

"I just couldn't believe it," Julie Fagerstrom, Maciel's mother, told the Morgan Hill Times. "I'm an open-minded parent, but it's got to be on both sides. It can't be five kids singled out."

Galli told NBC Bay Area, "They said we could wear it on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it."

In a statement released Thursday, Morgan Hill Unified School District Superintendent Wesley Smith characterized the incident as "extremely unfortunate" and said the matter is under investigation.

"The Morgan Hill Unified School District does not prohibit nor do we discourage wearing patriotic clothing," Smith's statement read. "The incident on May 5 at Live Oak High School is extremely unfortunate. While campus safety is our primary concern and administrators made decisions yesterday in an attempt to ensure campus safety, students should not, and will not, be disciplined for wearing patriotic clothing. This matter is under investigation and appropriate action will be taken."

Officials at Live Oak High School did not return several messages seeking comment on Thursday. A secretary told the Morgan Hill Times that Boden and Rodriguez were unavailable for comment on Wednesday.

According to its website, Live Oak High School is a 1,300-student institution in the southern part of Santa Clara County, with most students residing in the nearby cities of Morgan Hill and San Jose.

"The student population reflects the rich ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of the community," the website reads.

More than 100 students were spotted wearing the colors of the Mexican flag -- red, white and green -- as they left school, including some who had the flag painted on their faces or arms, the Morgan Hill times reported.

While bandannas of any color are banned at the school, its dress code policy does not contain references to American flags.

"However, any clothing or decoration which detracts from the learning environment is prohibited," the policy reads. "The school has the right to request that any student dressing inappropriately for school will change into other clothes, be sent home to change, and/or be subject to disciplinary action."

Freshman Laura Ponce, who had a Mexican flag painted on her face and chest, told the Morgan Hill Times that Cinco de Mayo is the "only day" Mexican-American students can show their national pride.

"There was a lot of drama going on today," Ponce told the newspaper.

Some other Mexican-American students reportedly said their flags were taken away or asked to be put away, but no other students were sent home on Wednesday.

Eugene Volokh, a professor of law at the University of California-Los Angeles, said the students are protected under California Education Code 48950, which prohibits schools from enforcing a rule subjecting a high school student to disciplinary sanctions solely on the basis of conduct, that when engaged outside of campus, is protected by the First Amendment.

If the school could point to previous incidents sparked by students who wore garments with American flags, they could argue that the flag is likely to lead to "substantial disruption," Volokh said.

"If, for example, there had been fights over similar things at past events, if there had been specific threats made," he said. "But if [school officials] just say, 'Well, we think it might be offensive to people,' that's generally speaking not enough."

Volokh said the students and their parents likely have a winning case on their hands if they decide to take the matter to court.

"Oh yes, it's almost open and shut," he said.

Lis Wiehl, a former federal prosecutor and a Fox News legal analyst, said the incident appears to a "blatant" violation of the students' First Amendment right to free speech. She noted that inciting violence is an exception to a First Amendment legal defense, but Wiehl said she saw no indications that the students provoked anyone.

"Unless I'm missing something, this seems like a blatant violation of the First Amendment," said Wiehl, adding that uniforms are not required at the public school. "And they're wearing, of all horrific things, the American flag." {source{

Well, this is lovely, isn't it?
First off, something I found out from Rush Limbaugh is Cinco De Mayo isn't even a real holiday. Surprised? So was I. It turns out it was invented by Corona Beer as a way to sell more beer.
Surprised, again? Me too.

Hm, so, now with that fascinating piece of information, let's re-look at this article.
So, these kids had to change their shirts because of a beer holiday, not even a "Mexican" holiday...nice.

Good God, why does this keep happening!? Again, and again, it's the same thing, repeating itself! I swear, they want to take away our rights, one at a time.
The way I see it, is I'm imagining The Grinch in the Who's houses, silently picking up the little bits and pieces of their joy--aka, Christmas presents and decorations.
Haha, does his creepy smile not remind you of Nancy Pelosi, even just a widdle bit? :)

In my English class, we just finished reading Animal Farm by George Orwell. First off, it's a danged scary book. Not because I'm afraid of some dictator-ish animals, but because I could so see us turning into that. In the end, the animals that revolt, end up turning into what they were revolting from. They turned the farm into a communist dictatorship; which, I can only imagine, is Obama's dream.
They had this one commandment that they kept reciting throughout the book "All animals are equal." Well, in the end, they changed it to what it had been all along, "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others."
Do you not see that beginning to appear in our own Animal Farm? Ya know, the school gets to dictate everything, making the Mexicans seem more "equal."

These "Mexican-Americans" and "African-Americans" really drive me crazy. No, not them specifically, but the hyphenated American part does. Because we're all so worried about being perceived as "racist," we give them special titles. Well, isn't that racism? We're treating them differently than the rest...aren't we? We live in fear of them; which that is so ridiculous. We are America, for crying out loud! We are the melting pot! We don't call people "Italian-Americans" or "Irish-Americans." So, why do they need to be called their own special name? Don't they feel prejudiced against?

I dunno, is it just me, or do you agree with these observations?

Let me know below.

Well, yeah.

Oh, Who's Got Anger Management Problems Now, Dude?

So, here I am--again--back to um, write about stuff. Yeah, it's pretty surprising. My goal, for the moment, is to try and do a weekly post, hopefully.
Therefore, here I be! (Yeah, I'm pretty good at grammar.)

Have you heard about that loopedy-brained teacher from Oregon? (Yes, I made up that word)

The Tea Partiers are taking the high road. Just because Oregon middle school teacher Jason Levin has publicly denounced them as a bunch of "racists, homophobes and morons," they say that's no reason for him to lose his job.

All Levin really needs, they say, is some sensitivity training and some anger management therapy.

Levin, who declared his mission to "dismantle and demolish" the Tea Party on his "Crash the Tea Party" website, was placed on administrative leave last week while a state education board and his school district investigate whether the technology teacher promoted identity theft against Tea Party activists and misused school property.

But the Oregon Tea Party seems to be sipping chamomile. It doesn't want his neck -- just an apology from Levin and the Beaverton School District.

"We don't want to see Jason Levin fired, we want to see him helped," said Oregon Tea Party founder Geoff Ludt. "We want to reach out to him and we want to use his actions to create a teachable moment."

Levin, a media lab teacher at Conestoga Middle School, was placed on leave last week pending the conclusion of an investigation by the Beaverton School District into whether he used school hours or computers to work on his anti-Tea Party website, and if his political activity was appropriate behavior for a teacher of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.

He is also being investigated by his state's teachers licensing agency, which was inundated with complaints after his incendiary statements became front page news.

In recent weeks, Levin announced his intention to embarrass Tea Partiers by attending their rallies dressed as Adolf Hitler, carrying signs bearing racist, sexist and anti-gay epithets and acting as offensively as possible -- anything, he said, short of throwing punches.

In an interview with Talking Points Memo, Levin said, "Our goal is that whenever a Tea Partier says 'Barack Obama was not born in America,' we're going be right there next to them saying, 'Yeah, in fact he wasn't born on Earth! He's an alien!'"

And in a now deleted post on website, Levin called on his supporters to collect the Social Security numbers -- among other personal identifying information -- about as many Tea Party supporters as possible at the numerous rallies that took place last Thursday.

"The more data we can mine from the Tea Partiers, the more mayhem we can cause with it!!!!" he wrote.

But the Oregon Tea Party says the teacher's actions are cause for a "teachable moment," not a trip to the unemployment line.

Ludt said his group sent out a press release to both the state agency and school district -- the same school district Ludt attended as a child -- on Monday in which they listed their demands.

The group is calling on the Beaverton School District to:

-- Apologize for inadequately supervising their teacher

-- Issue a written pledge to thoroughly investigate whether Levin encouraged his students to repeat overtly racist statements

-- Send a letter to all staff reminding them of district policy prohibiting teacher engagement in political activity on school time or using school resources

Despite being called “that loose affiliation of racists, homophobes, and morons” among a litany of other offensive names, the Oregon Tea Party says that as long as Levin successfully undergoes anger management and sensitivity classes, they see no reason why he shouldn't be allowed to teach.

"Levin sees us as enemies. We see him as a fellow human being who is obviously very angry and troubled. Political dialogue will never advance if we are unable to treat each other decently as human beings," Ludt said.

"Folks are out there are essentially rooting for the football team -- they're more interested in the games and not really looking at the issues. What we're trying to do is focus on the issues and the best way we can see to do that is to rise above the games.”

As for Levin's website, it has crashed and burned. The home page that once invited readers to help him demolish the Tea Party at all costs now simply reads: "Want to Show your support for Jason Levin? BUY A TEA-SHIRT." (source)

Hm, well, I have to say I'm not surprised.
Though, what throws me is why these libs (and Progressives) will scream homophobe, racist, hatemonger, etc. when they're the homophobes, racists, and hatemongers? Hypocrites, much?
Sorry, Levin your argument isn't very well supported; it sounds like a bunch of "insults" (that have, in my mind, been so over used that they've lost the insult that used to be behind them) strung together but there's nothing behind them. Last Thursday, I got to go to my first Tea Party. It was nothing like what he said! Nobody (except the fake people who showed up to make us look bad) were angry, in the least bit! Everybody was EXCITED, but under control. Why? Because we're just normal folks who are miffed at the how gigantic the government's become.
The only thing that upset me that day (besides how Vampire Diaries ended. Yeah, I guess I forgot to mention I am in love with that show. ;D) was the news' coverage of the day. One of the few people they interviewed was one who had a sign with "I Hated Obama Before It Was Cool" scribbled out in marker on it.
Seriously? (That's for the news, not the dude. 'Cuz, man, you have a LOT more guts than I do.)
I think Levin and the people who back him could learn from the Tea Party. They were gracious and very rational about the whole thing. Had this been reversed--this is just me musing here--I bet they would have fired right back with some smart-aleck response, or maybe some a little more violent. Ya know, I just realized something, how come this wasn't covered on the major news stations? Oh, that's right, this might make them look bad. They are so superficial...just like Miley Cyrus.
Oh, speaking of that girl, I need to write another post...
Major, major thumbs up to the Tea Party and um, an obviously thumbs down to Levin. Have fun with that anger management...
I think now I'm beginning to see why my parents aren't exactly fans of the public school system. haha, I totally get it. A bunch of libs..indoctrinating  munchkins! Haha, I really get it. Huh, no wonder we elected Obama in...that's a no-brainer

Health Care is For Crazies

Hey, here I am again!

More than 1500 Americans have joined a lawsuit against President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that challenges the constitutionality of the entire health care law. While several lawsuits are pending against the health care law, this lawsuit may be the only one taking broad aim at the law's constitutionality.

Tennessee attorney Van Irion, a Republican candidate for Congress, filed the complaint Thursday in Eastern Tennessee’s Federal District Court. Irion allows concerned citizens to join the lawsuit through a form on his Web site.

"We've been surprised at how many people from across the country want to join," Irion said in an e-mail to Fox News.

Eighteen state attorneys general and other individuals have filed suits that attack only the specifics of the health care law. This is an attack on the law's very foundation, claiming that nothing in the Constitution grants the federal government authority to regulate health care. Therefore the plaintiffs claim the law violates the 10th Amendment that reserves powers not granted to the national government to the states.

The complaint claims that the high-profile Democratic defendants abused their power and violated their oaths of office. The suit claims they failed to uphold and defend the Constitution by supporting legislation the plaintiffs say is unconstitutional. The plaintiffs argue the defendants violated their constitutional rights, and they are seeking “injunctive relief, declaratory relief,” and “damages to redress and remedy of the violations” to prevent “irreparable harm and future violations” of their rights and the rights of others.

A constitutional law professor at Emory University says this lawsuit is unique because it questions the long-standing interpretation of the Constitution’s commerce clause. That clause, which says that Congress has power to regulate commerce among the states, is central to this lawsuit. During Franklin Roosevelt's presidency, after passage of the New Deal policies, the Supreme Court broadened the definition of "commerce" to allow more federal regulation, setting a precedent that stands today.

“I think [this lawsuit] is different,” Robert Schapiro said . “It doesn’t even really pretend to argue under the way the Constitution is [currently] interpreted. It’s saying we should have some other interpretation of the Constitution.”

Confronting and reversing the court's precedent is Irion's goal.

“It’s a direct challenge to the Supreme Court’s commerce clause precedent of the 1930s and '40s,” Irion said. “If the Supreme Court was to overturn its commerce clause precedent, the size and authority of the Federal Government would be slashed.”

Irion says he is taking this case pro bono. The initial plaintiff was Anthony Shreeve, a Tennessee Tea Party activist, but now the complaint will be changed to include the hundreds of individuals and companies from every state that have signed on as plaintiffs. Irion is seeking class-action status for the suit.

The plaintiff registration process is relatively simple, and any individual or company can participate, according to Irion. After each person signs up, his or her contact information and place of residency is confirmed, and then they are added to the complaint as plaintiffs. No attorney fees or costs will be charged to them.

Though the lawsuit is unique, Schapiro says ultimately it lacks merit, and that the legislation is on firm Constitutional footing, based on precedent from Supreme Court cases on commerce regulation.

“It would be unwise and destabilizing to say we should try to abandon the evolution of the Constitution that has taken place over so many years, and to start from scratch and reconstruct a constitutional system from that,” Schapiro said.

By law, the defendants have 60 days to respond to the complaint. Schapiro says they will most likely move to dismiss the lawsuit “on a number of different grounds.”

The suit was prompted by the Tennessee attorney general’s announcement that he would not file a suit against the federal law. Irion says his intent in filing the suit was to give the citizens of Tennessee a voice, but the idea has caught on around the nation.

Irion is running for Tennessee’s Third Congressional District seat. Long-time Democratic incumbent Rep. Zach Wamp is leaving to run for governor. Irion faces an uphill battle. As of Dec. 31, he had less money than any of the six other Republican candidates, according to federal filing records. He had only $304 cash on hand, compared to Republican candidate Charles J. Fleischmann’s $451,369.{source}

Woot woot! Haha, this is great! It's so nice to see people getting excited about standing up for our constitutional rights.
The thing I'm afraid of, is a bunch of (and God bless 'em, I love them) Tea Party folks will get involved and then this will be turned into another poor case of "crazy teab*ggers." And I swear, I don't want that. I think the Tea Party peeps are pretty fly and completely right. So, it's not that I'm against them, dude, I'm the opposite. So, don't get me wrong here. I'm just sick of the media bias--on nearly everything--and the fact that they blame everything on us. We attack Obama--Heaven forbid!--and we're racist. Now, when they attacked George Bush--who I'll admit, didn't make the brightest decisions--it was perfectly perfect. :)
It's lopsided and it's crazy.

I think it's awesome that is going on. And maybe we can get this bill from Hell overturned. Hey, anything is possible. We did elect--well, not me, 'cuz I can't vote--maybe I should rephrase that...Some ding-dongs with air in the brain elected an inexperienced, racist prez with Socialism advisors. I think now we can do anything. Like clean out Congress in the upcoming elections. The key is to not believe the Dem's lies, keep the support up, and make sure we don't elect any half-Repub half-Lib people. Sen. Graham, is a perfect example.

Alright, well, that about wraps it up!
Thanks for reading.
Love, Palin, and Crowder...

Major, Major Sorry!!!

I am so sorry for not updating. The homework level was just too much, so...yeah
Thank you for still coming back to check.
Anywho...I'm back! :)

So, what should I rant about tonight...
How about health care?

Before I post the article, and then smother the entire page with my ranting, I'm gonna talk about my opinion of the health care fiasco. I think it's a big pot of yuck. 'Bam and the Gang are trying--and succeeding--to ruin this beautiful country. Do you see any more people with jobs? Does the economy look better? Has Gitmo been closed? Nope. Nada. All Obama's cared about is his danged health care. Oh, it's change alright. But, the point is, it's NOT good change. I've been saying--along with the smarter folks like Glenn Beck and Limabugh--that he never directly mentioned what kind of change we were going to receive.

Heck, we're on the road to Socialism.

Oh, we're off to get Socialism
The wonderful Socialism of Utopia (and Comunisim too!)

Ya got Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid skipping down the road, linkin' arms with Obama, smiling like a two year old in a candy shop. It's bad news, folks. They don't care about the good America; they want to see it smushed and blown up. It's the whole "one world" crud that makes me want to barf.
Speaking of Pelosi and Reid (oh, they make me laugh) watch this video in which Glenn Beck speaks everybody's mind about the duo.
Oh, they are quite a pair aren't they. Crazy libs!

Anyways, the health care bill was a whole lot of bad stuff. It's unconstitutional (duh!). Even my 11 year old sister knows that. What, do you think we're idiots or something? My parents taught us well. (Hi, mom)
We're gonna be just like Canada. Watch Steven Crowder's (my hero!!!) vid from like, last summer where he reenforces everything I've said. Purty much. I love that dude.

Well, there's something for now.
Look for the next post which will have an article in it from Fox News.

Another Unimportant Posting From Me

So, havin' fun shoving all that "global warming" outside your door? Me neither. (Major thanks to Rush Limbaugh for coming up with the correct title for snow.)

Help wanted. Must tweet.

If you're "passionate about engaging millions" in advancing President Obama's agenda, the commander in chief has a job for you.

The Democratic National Committee and Organizing for America -- the successor organization to Obama for America -- are seeking a "social networks manager" to oversee Obama's accounts on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. The ideal new hire, according to the official job description, will possess "strong, sharp and personable" writing skills, as well as the ability to craft messages that "move people to act" and managing multiple "complex" projects.

Be prepared to lose some sleep: "Ready to work hard; this isn't a 9-5 sort of job," reads another job qualification.

Candidates must also be willing to relocate to Washington, and preference will be given to those with experience in electoral campaigns and advocacy or nonprofit organizations.

The president's next social network mouthpiece will have his -- or her -- hands full with Obama's 7.5 million-plus Facebook fans, 3.3 million Twitter followers and nearly 2 million MySpace friends. The White House, in contrast, has less than 500,000 Facebook fans.

Recent posts to Obama's Facebook page have included well-wishes to Team USA in Vancouver and calls to "support candidates who fight" for health care reform.

"An alarming new study shows that U.S. health care spending rose to an estimated $2.5 trillion in 2009 and is projected to nearly double by 2019," a Feb. 10 posting reads. "We can't kick this problem down the road for another decade -- or even another year."

The starting salary for the position is unclear, as is the number of applications that have been received since the opening was posted late last week. Several messages to the DNC seeking comment Tuesday were not returned.

Mia Cambronero, who currently holds the position, will step down by the end of the month from her "infamous job as 'Barack Obama's twitterer,'" according to an e-mail posted to a listserv. "We're looking for someone to start immediately," the posting read.

Attempts to reach Cambronero, were unsuccessful Tuesday. She formerly served as a fellow for the New Organizing Institute, a "progressive advocacy and campaign training program" that was established by the liberal political advocacy group in November 2005. Cambronero graduated from Georgetown University in 2008, according to her profile.

Judging from Cambronero's past, her successor would do well to write lefthanded.

Yeah, why not pay somebody to lie and brainwash for ya? Wow, they're just thinking of everything, aren't they?

I guess this a great way to get to the crack-head twenty-somethings, hm? That is considering, they can read after wasting the most valuable years of their lives in governement funded asylums. Do you really wanna call them schools? I didn't think so.

I do have a question for Obama though, will he/she be called the Social Networking Czar?

I find it kinda, er, strange that she's just "stepping down" all of a it just me? And then she's not returning Fox's calls...and the fact that Fox is just a Republican Propaganda Network (bear with me here) shouldn't be influencing this that much. Seriously, I don't care how lib, ya are, don't be so 'tarded.

Did 'Bam and the Gang not promise to keep us "in the know" about everything? 'Cause why don't we know how much he/she would be paid, and/or how many people have applied? Good job on that one, dude.

Hehe, deep down, I find this hilarious. He wants to be so badly to be "down with the kids" that he's resorting to this...? I almost find it a desperate attempt to make sure his approval rating doesn't go all "London Bridge" on him. (Remember that song spoof?)

Well, hope that either scared the crud out of you or made you chuckle a wee bit.

Lots o' love,

Meghan McCain is Like, a Progressive like, Valley Girl, like, Wow

I'm trying to make up for not posting so....yeah.

Meghan McCain had some choice words for Sarah Palin, former Rep. Tom Tancredo and the conservative Tea Party movement as a whole during her appearance Monday on ABC's "The View."

 Meghan McCain had some choice words for Sarah Palin, former Rep. Tom Tancredo and the conservative Tea Party movement as a whole during her appearance Monday on ABC's "The View."

McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain known for occasionally parting ways with the views of her Republican dad, was particularly scathing in her assessment of Tancredo's speech on the opening day of the National Tea Party Convention on Thursday in Nashville. In the speech, Tancredo said people "who could not spell the word vote or say it in English" elected a "committed socialist ideologue" because the country does not require a "civics literacy test."

"It's innate racism, and I think it's why young people are turned off by this movement," McCain said. "And I'm sorry -- revolutions start with young people, not with 65-year-old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word vote in English."

Though speakers at the convention repeatedly rejected the "racist" label during the three-day event and held sessions on ways to attract young activists to their cause, McCain pointed to Tancredo's speech as a sign of what's wrong with the Tea Party movement.

"This rhetoric will continue to turn off young voters, and anybody that says different is smoking something -- period," she said.

McCain also criticized her father's former running mate for comments she made during an interview with "Fox News Sunday."

In the interview, Palin suggested that President Obama could improve his re-election chances by declaring war on Iran.

"You should never go to war unless it's the absolute last circumstance," McCain said on "The View."

On "Fox News Sunday," Palin also called for White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to "step down," in part for using the word "retarded" in a strategy session last year which only recently became public -- but at the same time, Palin defended conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's use of the word as "satirical."

McCain said that assessment is "exactly what is wrong with politics today."
"We can't placate and say Democrats can say one thing and Republicans can say another thing," she said.

Ah, Meghan McCain, please shut up.

She seriously has no idea what she's talking about. I seriously think it's another desperate attempt for attention. Like most people in the spotlight, they say whatever they want just to see if it will catch someone's eye. And, um, it usually does. Unfortunately.

The way to fix illiteracy idea--which I think is absolutely brillant--is not even half racist. This has nothing to do with racism. I think they're just afraid Obama and idiots--oh, am I racist now?--like him won't be able to cheat their way into office.

An example of why we need this?
I heard this from an friend: She knew someone who was working at the polls, and a woman came in who could not read. And she asked the woman to tell her which one was for Obama.


I feel like Glenn Beck right now; the blood is going to start shooting out of my eyes. (dramatic, much?)
If this great thing had gone through before the 2008 elections, maybe our country wouldn't have gone done the toilet as much as it has. I mean, we our country has so much potential, why trash it?

She needs to stop trashing Palin. Palin is 5x the woman Meghan will ever be. At least she can talk normally (see the video at the bottom of the post) And as well, Palin should stop going out for McCain. If this is all the better his bratty daughter can treat her, why bother? As well, McCain's too progressive for Sarah's beliefs.

And, um, call me crazy, but do you see Republicans getting off easy? Hardly. If anything, it's like the Dems have immunity against anything. The case of Blago, for instance, if that had happened to a Republican it would have been 6 times the scandal. Republicans get punched in the nose too often, while the Dems get hugs and kisses just as often. It's ridiculous.

Sarah was right about Emmanuel, he needs to step down. Yep.

So, you skipped down to the video, huh? haha here it is. Glenn was absolutely hilarious this morning. Yeah, I heard it in the car. Pretty awesome, huh?
So comment and let me know whatcha think...

Love and Revolution,

I'm Excited! Why? Cuz...We're Not Gonna Take it!

It's me, yeah, sorry about my absense. Ya know, school's purty demanding... sorry.


The Senate blocked President Obama's nominee for the National Labor Relations Board on Tuesday, as Democrats fell short of the 60 votes needed to break a Republican-led filibuster.

Two Democrats, Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas and Ben Nelson of Nebraska, broke with their party to vote against Craig Becker in the key procedural vote, which failed 52-33.

The vote also was significant for displaying the GOP's newfound muscle, as it came days after Republican Scott Brown of Massachusetts was sworn in as the newest senator, breaking the Democrats' 60-vote supermajority -- though the measure would have failed even without Brown's help, given Lincoln's and Nelson's no votes.

Republicans have held up Becker's confirmation for months. They say Becker would push an aggressive union agenda at the agency that referees labor disputes between unions and management.
Brown said Tuesday he couldn't vote in favor of Becker.

"My first priority in coming to Washington is to create jobs and put people back to work," he said in a written statement. "Craig Becker's theories about how the workplace should function, if ever put into practice, would impose new burdens on employers, hurt job creation and slow down the recovery."

On Monday night, Nelson had announced he would join the filibuster, a rare move for the conservative Nebraska Democrat, who is fond of saying that having been a governor responsible for choosing his own nominees, he gives great leeway toward a president's choices.

Only in "extraordinary circumstances" does Nelson join a filibuster, he said, a defining phrase that arose from a 2005 judicial nominations impasse.

Many Republicans say they believe Becker has his own agenda when it comes to so-called "card check" legislation, a proposal that would make it easier for workers to unionize. Nelson said he agrees.

This legislation has been stalled since it was first proposed. Sen Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, chairman of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, is the point man for finding a compromise, working with Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvnia and others.

Nelson has said he is opposed to the Employee Free Choice Act, the formal name for the bill.

"Mr. Becker's previous statements strongly indicate that he would take an aggressive personal agenda to the NLRB, and that he would pursue a personal agenda there, rather than that of the administration," Nelson said.

"In addition, the nominee's statements fly in the face of Nebraska's Right to Work laws, which have been credited in part with our excellent business climate that has attracted employers and many good jobs to Nebraska," he continued. "Considering these matters, I will oppose the upcoming cloture motion and the nomination."

The five-member National Labor Relations Board is responsible for deciding cases under the National Labor Relations Act.

Yea, Republicans! Way to finally get a backbone against these Dems! Maybe getting Scott Browne in--as aprehensive as I was--isn't gonna be so bad after all. Maybe it's finally giving you a much needed confidence boost. It's nice to see something that needs to be blocked, um, blocked.
Kinda sorta shows Bam and Crew something along the lines of that Twisted Sister song, "We're not gonna take it. No, we're not gonna take. We're not gonna take it anymore."

I know I'm probably getting excited 'bout nothing, but it's fun to get excited about nothing. :)

Yeah, ya know, these are the times when I'm proud to be a Republican (though I am really a Conservative, but hey, who cares? :D)

Lots of love,

Goal Shifting...Oh, What Fun...

DId you hear that Obama's "shifting his goals" for the second year? He's going to concentrate less on health care (which I think has something *cough* a lot *cough* to do with Browne getting in office). So, what's he going to do?? COncentrate on education reformation (eh...not so sure 'bout this one) and job tax cuts. (really not sure 'bout that one)

He might be loosening his grip on this crazy dream of socalized health care for the moment, but in a few months or next year...ha, we'll see.

Wow, don't I sound optimistic? :)

I'm sorry but when we have a communist prez with seriously misguided ideals, would you rather I go around skipping and telling you it's all good? (Do you think I'm a lib? That's purty much what I just described...)

Ah, such turbulent times...don't forget to laugh though. It is the best medicine.
Here's the newest video from Steven, hope it brightens your day...till you turn on the tv. :)

To Save a Life Movie Review by Uh, ME!!!!

So, as I promised, I'm going to talk (more like ramble) about To Save a Life.
Well, I went to go see it over the weekend, and my major advice to the girls who go see this BRING KLEENEX!!! Seriously, I was like bawling. Tragic...
So, the stories about this awesome got-it-all-together basketball star (High School Musical esque-ish) who's extremely popular and forgot all about his childhood bestie. Ya know, the swap out the old friend with the hot girlfriend and idiotic jocks as friends.
His friend, in 6th grade, saved him from an oncoming car, taking a blow to his leg, resulting in a permanent limp. Which then lets Jake (the jock) go on to be a basketball maniac.
Eventually, one day at school, Roger (the limping past-bestie) pulls a gun out and begins firing. Jake cautions him not to do anything, but Roger *spoiler* commits suicide.
So, then Jake's all blue about the whole thing (if he wasn't I'd be worried). One thing leads to another, and he starts going to church, his supposed friends leave him (cuz he's too CHristian for them) etc.
His life falls apart, and he finds God. Ya know...
The best part of this movie is Doug Moore played by *drum roll*...Steven Crowder. Yeah, my favorite political commentator. He plays the jerk of a best friend guy. It was nice to see him on a bigger screen then my computer for longer than 4 minutes.
The movie is def worth seeing. It has a good Christian perspective on things teens get shoved at them on a daily basis.
So, go see it if the last sentence piqued your interest...or you just wanna see Steven for a bit. His arms are lot more muscular then his vids let on. bahaha
But as a final note, the movie is a sobering look at what the lure of popularity can sometimes lead to.

I love you!!!
(I'm tired of closing my posts the same dorky way.)
