Coming Soon to a Nation Near You?

Australia to Implement Mandatory Internet Censorship

Let's see. This is something that you expect to see in Beijing, or Havana, or even Pyongyang. Instead, here we have Australians.....Australians! mind you, getting ready to apply more broad based, mandatory content filters to the Internet.

Naturally, like all Left-Wing ideas such as this, it all started "for the children". They wanted to filter out child pornography. A laudable goal surely. Then, it was "adult content". Now, anything deemed "controversial" will be blocked at the borders. This is not about safety, this is about control. This is about making sure that dissenting voices and opinions can be suppressed and silenced. This program is not optional for these people.

Folks, George Washington put it best - "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force.
Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

As you get ready to go to the polls, remember what party wants to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Remember that what the Aussies are about to do is not all that far a stretch for a revived Fairness Doctrine. Remember what party currently controls the main stream media and wants to stop the blogosphere and Conservative radio shows from broadcasting dissent. Remember who the people are who respond to discourse not with logic, but with ad hominem attacks and rancor and hate, or even the Police.

The Democrats are about to have a filibuster-proof majority in the House and Senate. This means that Republicans will be forced to sit impotently on the sidelines as bill after Liberal bill is passed. There will be no checks, there will be no balances, there will be no stopping it. The amount of damage to Conservative and Libertarian ideals and principles will be immense.

Who do you want in the White House? No matter if you hate Bush, or hate the Republicans, or the war, do you really want the Democrats to have unfettered control of the legal system for at least 2 and more likely 4 years??

Are you ready to lose your voice in Congress AND your 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights?

How will you vote on Tuesday?

Obama - The Formative Years

Recently, with all the furor over Marxists, and Obama, the failure of the Main Stream Media to address his past, and all of the very interesting things coming out about Obama's associations, I've begun to think a little on America, its people, and its total failure to educate our children.

I have come to realize that in just about every class I took growing up, I was taught to rely on others to provide me with my facts and ideology. Instructors placed an emphasis on regurgitating the facts as provided by the books they provided and the lectures they gave. One History Professor at Northern Arizona University even went so far as to say if we wrote down something on our essay question tests that he hadn't told us or that we hadn't read in our reading assignments that he'd not count that answer towards our grade.

I was lucky enough, however, to encounter an amazing Professor quite literally at the end of my college period. I needed 3 more credits to graduate, and took them over the summer. I took a class on The Logic of Argument. This Professor gave reading assignments. Yes, they were Kant, and Marx, and Hume. But the idea wasn't to read these as a source of ideology, but with an eye towards poking holes in the arguments, towards diagramming the logical progression, and understanding the meanings behind the overt words written on the page. In short, this Prof was attempting to teach us how to think.

I did very well in the class, but I found reading in that manner profoundly hard at the time.

With that lead-in, take a quick look at this article (and the lovely picture of Marx up there at the top of this post).

Obama likes to think that he can have all of these associations. That he can seek out Socialist Professors, radical Feminists, avowed and unrepentant terrorists, and that they haven't actually made an impression on him.

Coupled with his Joe the Plumber remarks, and Biden's "more taxes are patriotic", paired with more than $1 trillion in spending, do you really think Obama's Marxist roots are all in the past? Do you think that his truth squads and habitual attempts to suppress dissenting media are just a right wing smear, or a lie?

It's far past time people opened their eyes and looked past the MSM to the truth and the facts.

Obama Cuts off Interviews with FL TV Station

Remember folks, Obama doesn't want his true message and true intentions to get out.

Kudos to this TV station for actually DOING THEIR JOB and asking the hard questions of Biden. THIS is what the main stream media should have been doing FROM THE START.


You can read the article at The Orlando Sentinel.

The War on Guns goes "mainstream".

A quick note today to encourage you to head on over and read up on David Codrea's new blog in the Cleveland Examiner. You can click the image to head on over there.

This blog is likely the first of it's kind - a mainstream media outlet has allowed one of the premier voices of gun rights and liberty an outlet to get our message out.

I encourage you to head on over there every day if you can to read the latest, and please feel free to leave a comment in support or expansion of what is being said. Or heck, start a debate if you want to, but lets make sure this blog succeeds so that we may have even more opportunities to get the word out.

Remember, It's Time to Be Patriotic!

It's time to be Patriotic! Lets bankrupt ourselves for the cause!


Ever really taken a hard look at your paycheck? And I mean, not just glanced at the final number at the bottom - but a really hard look at all of the money that gets taken out before you get to that ever-important bottom line?

Well, here's some fun for you.

For states with high state taxes - how does 37.7cents on every dollar you earned getting returned to you sound?

That's right. You make a dollar, the government under Obama deigns to "allow" you to keep 37.7 cents.

Only for the "rich" you say?? Sure. It's easy to play class warfare and get the mob riled up against the "rich" - you know, those making more than $250k a year. Just remember, though. "Rich" used to refer to those making $500k per year. Will "rich" mean $80k next year? $40k the next? After all, there's always someone making less than you that "deserves" a fair amount of the money you make.

Take a listen to this clip - it's the raw conversation between Joe (and fine, the media has slimed him up - but this is Obama talking to someone he believes to be legitimate, and is really explaining what he believes to be fair).

Obama and Ayers

Before you watch this video, I want you to think carefully about a few things. Obama sat on a board with Ayers, a lead member of the Weather Underground - the group that this former agent is talking about. He launched his political career in Ayers' living room. He considers himself to be a friend to Ayers.

This is what Ayers was looking for then. Considering he is still unrepentant, and considers the bombings in New York and Washington that he perpetrated to be "good work", this is STILL what Ayers is looking for.

These are the kinds of people Obama is hanging out with, listening to, considers friends.

Are these the kinds of friends *YOU* want anywhere near the most powerful person in the world?

I voted early on Monday. I voted against my Republican Senator because he voted for this farce of a scam. I hope you'll do the same.

Free the Market!

This article from Fox News would have me in stitches, if this weren't so serious.

What I find sad is that no one in a public position is looking at the one thing that can save this situation.

A free, capitalist market.

Not a market where companies hide their debt in offshore accounts and "invisible" credit default swaps.
Not a market where the government tries to prevent insolvent companies from being broken up and sold to other companies that can run them better.
Not a market where you keep throwing money at it until hyperinflation ends any hope you had at being a world power.
Not a market where you attempt to artificially keep home prices higher than they should be by attempting to keep people who can't afford to pay for them living in them.

Over and over we hear "we need to stop the price of homes from falling". What hubris! What gall! Government doesn't dictate any pricing to a free market! Let me say that again - NO ENTITY can dictate the prices of ANYTHING to investors. People who play with money for a living are smarter than that.

The market determines what people will pay for a good or service. And that's how we're now in this mess. We have a bunch of egomaniacs running this country, Democrat and Republican, that seriously believe they can somehow wave a magic wand and everything will go back to what it was last year.

The only problem is - the people with the money have woken up. Their eyes are now opened on what is truly going on, and they don't like what they see. And parlor tricks with an interest rate that is already too low, throwing money at insolvency, and trying to sell TBills that are barely worth the paper they're printed on isn't going to suddenly entice them to play ball.

Once again, as I did last month, I call on Congress and the Executive:

Let the free market reign!
Force companies to disclose their actual assets and debts, shine a light on credit default swaps, and LET INSOLVENT COMPANIES FAIL.

And most of all...

ACORN and the Entire Starting Lineup for the Cowboys

Ahh, Community Organization and Chicago Politics. What do they have in common? Both are corrupt as hell, and both have a goal - keep tyrants in power at any cost.

Over the years, ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) has done things that would make Daley proud. The best part: Barack Obama trained many of ACORN's "community organizers".

Apparently, he trained them well.

27,000 fraudulent voter registrations in Washington State That's right, just head down to the local library with a stack of registration forms and sign up people in phone books, baby naming books, heck, add Mark Twain while you're at it - he'd likely love to vote Democrat. Right after he beat you to death with his walking stick - while dead. Tough guy that one.

And in Detroit last year.

In fact, here is a map showing all of the locations where this group has conducted fraudulent voting drives FOR OVER 10 YEARS.

And yet, time and time again, the ACORN heads claim ignorance. And every year it happens again. ACORN supports Democrats. And Democrats support ACORN, even attempting to add funding for ACORN to the recent bailout.

Today, ACORN offices were raided in Nevada for......guess what!

Wait for it.

Voter fraud of course.

Isn't it about time to say enough is enough?

Don't Forget

Where this "crisis" really came from. Don't fall for the Democrat (tail)Spin.

If your congresspeople voted for the bail out - BAIL THEM OUT OF OFFICE. Yes, I will be voting for a Democrat for Senator for the first time ever in a few weeks. My House of Representatives member (who is up for re-election) smartly voted against the bail-out, so I will vote for him.

If you're not looking behind the scenes here. If you're not realizing who's really at fault for this deserve every bit of what's coming.

A list of who voted what in the Senate.
A list of who voted what in the House.

We've had a do nothing Congress so far, right up until they decided to screw us, and our markets. A half oil-change could only be for the better.
