Freedom of speech in danger

It's amazing now that the liberals are in charge of the govt, how things have turned a complete 180. The most obvious of them is freedom of speech. If a cop had came up to a liberal protester and told them to take their sign down, a riot would most likely have ensued. But now, a peaceful protester has been told to take his sign down because it was ..... uh .... trespassing????????

Here's the sign:

This is just plain wrong. Watch the attached video. This cop is definitely drinking too much koolaid or something like it.

He'll probably get a letter of commendation from the communist diversity czar at the FCC.

Isn't that special?

All the fuss over us internet users who don't have journalism degrees...where have we heard that before? It seems someone has managed to get the govt involved in the fray now. Most of us know what the problems are.

One, the internet is (at least for the time being) unrestricted and anyone can use their first amendment rights to free speech to publish on here what they wish.

Two, mainstream publications put their content on here so people will read it because the cost of the printed version is now higher than anyone wishes to pay.

Three, and most important, the mainstream journalists are for the most part Democrat/Socialist/Communist/Obama worshippers and most of them don't have a clue what most of us Americans actually would read from them. This is the main reason why the big publishers are having problems and they don't have a clue.

If they did, Fox News would have some real competition.

Well said

Healthcare struggle is about freedom...

I could not have said it better. I urge you if you have not done so already, to get out of your comfort zone and write and/or call your senators and representatives to voice your opinion about the current healthcare "reform". I'm sure you've heard many things pro and con about this legislation, but please realize this: If you are of voting age or know of those who are of voting age, now is the time to speak and be heard. Our freedoms are being destroyed right in front of us and if we don't speak up now, we'll not have them again. This isn't for someone else, this is for you and your family and your friends and your neighbors.

PLEASE get involved...before it's too late.

A new first

I did something last Thursday I have never done before. I attended and participated in a protest. Made my own sign and everything! It was actually kinda fun, even though it was really hot outside. I had to burn a vacation day to do so, but it was worth it to me. It was kinda loosely organized by a local group called We the Hoosiers.

If you look down 2 posts at the 'Baron Hill is a coward' post, you'll see why I went to this protest. Mr. Hill (my Indiana representative to the US congress) was scheduled to give a private speech to the local American legion post in Lawrenceburg, IN. He has several of these "private" (read: no public allowed) meetings scheduled during the summer recess, but no public meetings. Combine that with him calling people that disagree with him a terrorist....well, you decide.

Gosh, I guess he doesn't deal too well with a constituency that he's just about completely torqued off. I still stand by my accusation that he's a coward. Here's why....

While at this protest (there were about 40-50 people there), Mr. Hill shows up and goes in the back door from an alley approach. He did not drive past any of the protesters this way. One of the guys in the group saw him as he got out of a car and yelled at him we'd like to ask some questions.

Not knowing if this got his attention or not, we decided to stake the 4 corners of the property out to make sure he couldn't get out without us at least trying to ask any questions. After he gave his speech, he sent one of his lackeys, er I mean helpers outside to tell us he'd come out and speak to us only if we could contain ourselves and not get ugly.

Funny, he starts the conversation off by accusing us of doing something we had in no way shape or form shown in the hour and 15 minutes we'd been out there. One of the guys I was speaking with was much faster on his feet than me and asked the best response question by asking what exactly did we do to make Mr. Hill think we were going to be disruptive. We didn't disrupt his speech or do anything else ugly while on the sidewalk.

So, a half and hour later, 2 policemen show up and then Mr. Hill comes outside. There was no violence shown, no ugly language from anyone that I heard, or anything else that would make him think we were going to be really stupid and start something. Most importantly, no liberals were outside stirring the pot. I'm thinking that's a pretty good recipe for a peaceful demonstration and a meaningful dialogue if he happens to hold up his end of the bargain.

The funniest thing to happen was that someone eventually asked if he was going to read the bill from cover to cover this time and Mr. Hill was the one to get ugly. He was shouting and even yelled at one of his employees. What a jerk.

I personally didn't get to ask any questions as everyone else closer to him was asking the same things I wanted to ask.

I was rather disturbed by his approach to the entire matter though. He referred to the current bill as HR3200, which is pretty well known by now. However, apparently, whenever they make a change to the bill, it doesn't change any markings or denotations, such as RevA or Mod2 or anything, it just keeps the same HR #. (No wonder congress is screwing us up to quickly) The conversation got a bit heated a few times when people would ask questions about all the stuff flying around on the internet and Mr. Hill got angry because some of the data supposedly has been removed from the bill (HR3200).

The problem with this is there are more than 1 bills in circulation up there and Mr. Hill even said there were at least 5 of them. I was only aware of the one in the House and the one in the Senate at the time.

But, Mr. Hill's true colors do show when you fluster him a bit, as is no different with any of us humans. When pressing him about certain wordings and sections in the bill, at one particular question, he said he wasn't aware of that being in the bill and he would check on it. Ok fine. Then, later when asked about something else, he said we had old information and it wasn't in the bill and most likely the one he wasn't aware probably wasn't in there either.

Sounds innocent enough, right?

But I thought he read it from cover to cover?

I don't know about you, but I have a real problem with that.

Sadly, the debate is changing, as it always does with liberals. When they find themselves on the losing end of the stick, they always change the subject. (Or start calling you names, such as political terrorists). They've discovered that the American people do not want healthcare to be managed by the government (easy examples of what happens when they do would be Amtrack and the post office).

You may also be aware of the recent hot water episode for the white house where the staff members have resorted to sending regular junk mails via the WH site to unsuspecting Americans. I got one of them and it even asked me to forward the msg onto others.

Yeah, right. I'm sure gonna send propaganda from a socialist lackey to my friends. Not.

Anyway, I get this msg from the lead propagandist at the white house which tells me that the health care bill does not contain language to do with euthanasia. Later on that day, it's reported that the senate had just that day removed language from their bill regarding euthanasia.

Interesting....Mr. Hill has just told me there isn't anything in the bill to do with euthanasia yet the bill I had read on the internet had the language and a day later, the senate actually removes such language from their version of the bill.

What this shows me is that the liberals, who don't normally give a micron, have changed their approach from creating a new insurance industry controlled by the govt to the same industry, but will be regulated heavily.

What everyone still seems to be failing to miss is that if these kinds of regulations are actually placed on the insurance companies, then we will all suffer because they (the insurance companies) will simply cease to provide their services, or the prices will be so high that even less people will have coverage than do now. And it won't be by choice. We simply won't have the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Please do all of us a favor and get involved with this issue. We cannot afford "health insurance reform", especially without some legal reforms.

Remember the biggest costs in the health insurance industry is regulation and lawsuits. Fix those, the price automatically goes down for everybody.

Email story of the day

Lovers of language enjoy this. It is an example of why people learning English have trouble. Learning the nuances of English makes it a difficult language.

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP ? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends and we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car.
At other times the little word has a real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.
And this up is confusing:
A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UPabout UP !

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP , look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more...

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP . When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on & on, but I'll wrap it UP , for now time is UP

Don't screw up. Send this on to everyone you look up in your address book.

Now I'll shut up

Baron Hill is a coward

Baron Hill (my Indiana district representative - and local elected failure) is showing his true colors. He has now resorted to the easy way out of a disagreement by using the standard form of exit by all democrats these calling you a name then leaving.

Yeah, I believe 4th graders do that too.

He was interviewed by the Washington Post and called anyone who disagrees with him a terrorist.

My fellow Americans, please hear this:
This is what the Democrats/liberals think of anyone who disagrees with them: They literally think you are a terrorist.

I guess they feel they must call us that because we upset their Utopian apple cart.

Apparently the old adage applies to old Baron as well... if you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch. He's must be really afraid of the very people that elected him.

He said in the wapo article that he is trying to control the event. I'm sorry Mr. Hill, but the event is not yours to control. You didn't appoint yourself to that office, we the people elected you and now you're too afraid to meet with us to give us ANY reason (that will actually hold water) you lied to us about how you will be a "blue dog". You're an insult to dogs everywhere.

Mr Hill, I have not met one single person who is in favor of any health care reform. What I've learned in my short years on this planet is that health care is expensive. I've learned that the biggest reason it is expensive is due to lots of regulations. Why don't you fix some of that problem, then more people can afford to get better health care coverage.

Lots of people have lost their healthcare coverage since the first of the year due to stuff you are doing in Congress.

If you wish to truly help people, fix stuff that's actually broken first. Like you could start by cleaning out fannie mae and freddie mac. Then place some TIGHT controls on the FED so they'd stop wrecking the economy. Then stop giving TONS of bailout money to banks, car companies and the like. Then, place some limits on frivolous lawsuits against Dr.'s and insurance companies (and allow the FDA to be equally liable). You are literally wasting untold amounts of money on useless things and programs while not even addressing what you are doing to our future.

You're wrecking it and hiding behind your democrat coattails. Please, just resign and give it up before you kill us all.

Here's some questions for you:
1. Will you vote for a bill that contains language that forces congress to abide by the same healthcare rules that the general citizenry does?
2. Will vote for a bill that forces elderly people to get counseling on how to end their life willingly?
3. Will you vote for a bill that allows anyone other than the family of a sick/injured person to pull the plug?
4. Will you vote for a bill that allows for funding of fetus murder?
5. Will you vote for a bill that prevents me in any way of purchasing my own health insurance?
6. Will you vote for a bill that forces me in any way to drop my current healthcare plan?
7. Will you vote for a bill that forces a doctor to include any consideration of cost in his choice offerings to a patient?
8. Will you vote for a bill that places cost above a human life? (don't spend money if the patient only lives another year)
9. Will you actually read this bill from front to back before voting on it?

Now, Mr. Hill, I'm all ears. Convince me I'm wrong (without using a lawyer).

Here's a possible way to see how it's supposed to be done....

I live for this stuff

Our church is having their annual vacation bible school (VBS) this week, as do most churches. If you don't go to church, this is a great way to get your kids in church and some simple acquaintance with biblical teachings. If you don't go to church, I strongly urge you to find a good church and start attending regularly.

I know I put a lot of political stuff on here, but I do that because this current political climate is not good for me, my family, my friends or my fellow countrymen. It's simply taking our nation down a slippery slope we may never be able to climb back up.

But that aside, if your church is having trouble deciding on what to do for a vacation bible school theme, I'd like to suggest the Creation Museum offering of Operation Space, or the one we did last year, Amazon expedition. Both are fantastic pkgs and are not expensive to get started. If your church has several people who are willing to get pitch in for a small period of time, this can be a great project for your church and your children, which is the future of our churches.

I, no not just me, but we are really excited to see what the museum can come up with next year for a VBS pkg! It will be great, if they're anything like the first 2 they've done.

As for you that don't quite believe all this, you should take the time to find a God fearing church to attend. Yeah, I've heard all the excuses of the church wanting money and fame and brainwashing, etc. But if you've been fooled by these comments, or worse, you've been to a church that actually did these things, then you have been fooled by the devil himself.

He only exists to destroy the church and the people on this planet. He doesn't want us to worship God and he will fill your head with all kinds of ideas and convince you the church and God is your enemy. Please don't fall prey to these ideas.

If you have found a truly God fearing church, then you will finally understand all the blessings and joy that God has for you and your life.

He can take away all the pain and suffering around you and your well being, but you have to first accept that He can.

Pass it on...

Email of the day.....

Subject: FW: Pass It On If You Agree

You may have seen this, but it surely deserves another look!

I am passing this on........
I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama.

Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama!
I promise to give our country the devoted loyalty of a patriot.

I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it.

I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that He is a one-term President!

Why am I doing this?

It is because I do not share Obama's vision or value system for America.

I do not share his abortion beliefs.

I do not share his radical Marxist's concept of re-distributing wealth.

I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August).

I do not share his view that America is Arrogant.

I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation.

I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%.

I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than American Citizens who need help.

I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage.

I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land.

I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public).

I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America.

I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East, and certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.

Bottom line, my America is vastly different from Obama's, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my God to do what is Right!

For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!

They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country!

They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!

They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years; they have mocked and attacked the very core value so important to the founding and growth of our Country!

They have made every effort to remove the name of God or Jesus Christ from our Society!

They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code; they have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!

Unite behind Obama? Never!

I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!

PRESIDENT BUSH made mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!

Majority rules in America, and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and "his goals for America."

I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country! Any more compromise is more defeat!

I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-God crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America!

"Error of Opinion may be tolerated where Reason is left free to combat it." (Thomas Jefferson)

God bless you and God bless our Country!!!

(Pass this on if you agree) Pray for our country if you do not agree!
