When the job goes to your head

I live the 9th district in Indiana, currently under-represented by Baron Hill. He was one of the scare-dy cat democrats who chose not to have public town hall meetings this summer when people were springing up out of their chairs and actually deciding to get up and say something about this sham called health care reform.

Apparently, this scared him. However, he found that what few events he did go to that were unplanned with the public turned out to be rather civil and mostly occupied by concerned citizens. This got him to drop his guard long enough to commit to at least 1 public meeting and unbelievably, he said he wasn't going to allow his constituents to tell him how to run his office.

I think he's been in office way too long. He has certainly forgot who put him there and who he is supposed to be representing.

I wonder.....who was it doing the blowing up in this meeting???

Change: Obama style

The obummer campaigned on fundamental change to America. All the poor people screamed yay! Of course, they're expecting to be brought up out of the poverty they exist in now. Yay! A new ray of hope! Some even expected it on a silver platter.

However, the rest of us shudder to think that our worst fears and projections from late last fall are coming to fruition. The latest thing I hear is that the anointed one is calling for a longer school year.

What exactly this will accomplish (on the plus side) is beyond me. Obummer must really have it out for the working people and entrepreneurs. Does he hate us that much?

This sort of requirement will have the wonderful side affect of making more children than ever come back to school after running away from the worthless institution it has become now. Force the poor little tykes into more indoctrination, yeah, that'll help.

Let's see, what all can I wreck in the economy this week? Tourism, motels, airlines, travel oriented companies, anyone or company that employees people with children, and who knows what else. Where is SEIU in responding to this new disaster in the making????

Good Lord, I can just see the arguments starting over who gets the week off and who doesn't with this type of arrangement.

This is the type of stuff that every state in the union should be declaring their 10th amendment rights, if they haven't already. The federal government needs to get their nose out of the education business before it completely fails the entire nation.

I'm so happy. Just think. The government is doing to the car buisiness and the education system what it has done to the post office, medicare, banking and real estate. If it weren't for the failures of the banking and real estate markets, we wouldn't be in this position right now. And those would not have failed if the govt had kept their noses out of them.

God never ceases to amaze!

I sat down at my pc this past Saturday to do some work on a church project and flipped the tv on just for the noise. But sometimes, things happen that change your day completely. Apparently, the last time the tv was on, it was on the Fox News Channel (FNC), so that was what I got when powering back on.

To say the least, I was not prepared for what I heard. Before I could spin back around in my chair, a public service announcement came on the air wishing the children of Israel happy new year (Rosh Hashannah). I was just so blessed to hear this as I couldn't believe I just heard this on a national broadcast station, even if it was FNC. As it turns out, Glenn Beck was coming on the air and his monologue was a rerun from Thursday or Friday, but I didn't listen much as I was still in awe of seeing this clip on there for Rosh Hashannah.

Finally, a commercial came on at the end of his monologue and I turned back around to start on my project and I noticed that Beck went to a live segment, or one from a show I had missed. Anyway, in it, he had a guest on (that I can't remember the name of, it may have been George Foreman) and they were discussing the general direction of our great nation. It definitely wasn't the right way, not even considering my opinion of that, as they started mentioning all the problems with obummer's cabinet, plus the acorn scandal and others.

Then, Beck asked his guest a question. He asked "What is wrong with America? What do we need to do about this?" (At least as I remember his questions....) I thought to myself...I know what is wrong...they have abandoned God. They need to turn from their wickedness and get on their knees and ask for forgiveness before God completely forsakes us.

Then, to my amazement, Beck says almost the same exact thing. I was flabbergasted. Twice, in less than an hour, this news network had all but knocked me out of my chair. If I was amazed at the Rosh Hashannah clip, I was blown away by this. I was so wildly blessed, that all I could do was to weep.

Then this morning, I read this blog entry on Big Hollywood from actress Victoria Jackson. Wow, I'm just amazed at how God can lift your spirits up this way. Thank you Lord!

You can't say that on tv

Well, if you've been living under a rock, (or just depending on ABC, NBC, CBS or a few other news agencies) then you might not be aware of the huge scandal going on with ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). Videos made by a couple of young eager journalists to be took it upon themselves to risk life and limb to go after a really corrupt organization, so far in 4 cities. Rumor has it there will be more films released, but these first 4 are bad enough to warrant a criminal investigation.

Now, I just learned that ACORN has supposedly initiated a self audit of that branch of their operation to get to the bottom of what actually happened. Yep, they had 4 separate branches give out the same felonious advice. On tape no less. I think most of us could figure the outcome of that audit already.

All the videos are on this site. Go get your drink, and sit down for a while. just bring plenty of napkins so you can quickly wipe up what you spit out while watching this.

I pray for the safety and continued diligence shown by these 2 young Americans. I also hope they inspire what few real reporters that might be left in an increasingly hostile to reality field.

Come forth!

Email of the day....

Send this to a teacher.......they'll get it........

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:

'Let me see if I've got this right.

'You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.

'You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and
sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and
personal pride.

'You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job.

'You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams.

'You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.

'You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.

'You want me to do all this and then you tell me. . . I CAN'T PRAY?

Hands off health care

Go to this website and send a letter to your congressmen and president. (Check to make sure it has selected your representatives)

The more I hear about healthcare, the more I think the politicians needs to stay away from it. They're only intent on destroying it, not making it more available. Apparently, they are truly ashamed that we have managed to build the best health care system on the planet and can't stand it that anyone can get health care here.

This is what I wrote in my letter:
I've read and heard a lot of the hyperbole coming from the Washington DC elite about the "health care reform" legislation and I'd like to add my take on it.

I don't think any of the versions I've heard, read or seen of the legislation being covered by any news source is to be considered as reform.

If you truly wanted health care reform, there would be 2 major initial changes enacted already that would allow competition from state instead of the current method where only a few companies are allowed to compete in given areas.

If you are serious about this, you'd also come up with some torte reform that would keep the doctors from constantly being concerned about malpractice insurance premiums. Most dr's push unneeded tests and even ignore critical patients because they're concerned about being sued over something stupid.

These 2 things alone would make healthcare more available and affordable than anything else you could legislate. Why aren't these even being considered in these bills?

Even my representative, Baron Hill, has stated it will take upwards of 10 years to make real reform work well for Americans.

So, my ultimate question is "What is the big hurry??"

It looks to me like a tax hungry congress has found just another way to bleed us of our ever decreasing hard earned dollars and they're using the guise of reforming health care as a cover.

Please stop spending these untold amounts of money and leave health care out of it, before you kill us.
