Worship of the One

Now, you could *maybe* get away with saying that O didn't know this was going on, and you'd probably be correct. But...if you couple this with the shocking video of children being taught to sing praises to O in school-to the tunes of hymns and carols, it seems to all add up to the "culture of personality" that permeates our society.

O should distance himself from such messianic praises, and quickly.

Make up Your Mind

I tend to use the labels Fascism, Marxism, Socialism, Totalitarianism and Communism interchangable, and I think I've confused a few people. I thought I'd take a few minutes to actually define them, and then explain myself.
We'll go in alphabetical order, because I love words, and it would drive me batty to see them out of order :D

Communism (N):
1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.

2. (often initial capital letter) a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.

3. (initial capital letter) the principles and practices of the Communist party.

Fascism (N):
1. (sometimes initial capital letter) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

2. (sometimes initial capital letter) the philosophy, principles, or methods of fascism.

3. (initial capital letter) a fascist movement, esp. the one established by Mussolini in Italy 1922–43.

Marxism (N):
the system of economic and political thought developed by Karl Marx, along with Friedrich Engels, esp. the doctrine that the state throughout history has been a device for the exploitation of the masses by a dominant class, that class struggle has been the main agency of historical change, and that the capitalist system, containing from the first the seeds of its own decay, will inevitably, after the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat, be superseded by a socialist order and a classless society
Socialism (N):
1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.

2. procedure or practice in accordance with this theory.

3. (in Marxist theory) the stage following capitalism in the transition of a society to communism, characterized by the imperfect implementation of collectivist principles.

Totalitarianism (N):
1. the practices and principles of a totalitarian regime.

2. absolute control by the state or a governing branch of a highly centralized institution.

3. the character or quality of an autocratic or authoritarian individual, group, or government: the totalitarianism of the father.

So, as you can see, there isn't really a whole lot of difference in each of the "ism's", aside from totalitarianism, which would be a dictatorship-think Iran, Venezuela, Cuba...
I've chosen to use them interchangeably, because I don't see much difference between them, and I think our current administration is exhibiting aspects of all of them:
(C) Obama and his flunkies have gotten their hands in a variety of industries; bailed out, TARPed and variously regulated things the government has NO Constitutional authority to tinker with.
'...single self perpetuating political party.' Just look to the hypocrisy taking place in MA this week for evidence.
Don't forget the looming health care exravaganza, the take over of 1/6th of our economy.
(F) 'forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.'
They may not be forcing the suppression of opposition just yet, but it's coming. The Fairness Doctrine, which is a violation of our freedom of speech, will be attempted through back door dealings; the Internet grab "in an emergency"; calling those who disagree with their policies radicals, and people who need to be silenced, crying racism as a way to distract from the real issues; regimenting industry in the name of the climate hoax; it's all there.
Don't forget campaign finance reform that takes away your First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, this goes back farther than Obama, and is wrong regardless of whose watch it is.
(M) Class struggles, and pitting classes against each other. Vilifying those who are successful; when small businesses are taxed ruthlessly; when "wealthy Americans" are taxed at a higher rate, thereby punishing the successful; redistributing income to make things "fair". This is Marxism, and it's rampant in the left-wing.
(S) 'system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.'
This one is a little trickier. "We the People" now own GM, and some banks, and pretty soon some newspapers (won't that be nice, when we can more fully trust the news coming from THOSE sources?). However, we'll never get a dime in dividends, or reimbursements, and I'd bet a milkshake, those various companies never get out of the deal they made with the devil. So, we can't say it's true Socialism I suppose, but I don't think the people of the USSR got so much out of their collective ownership either, and it was still Socialism.

(T) As the government continues to take over industry after industry, we may just see a dictator arise. They already revere Obama as a sort of messiah, and this kind of messiah is one step away from a dictator. We don't have "absolute" control by the state yet,  but if we don't make some noise, and make sure our representatives know we are unhappy, it WILL come to that, the groundwork is being laid now.
The Constitution is hanging by a thread, it is being trampled on by people of all persuasions, all races, all religions, both parties.  These "ism's" are all parts of Obama's agenda, he's exhibiting traits from each definition, so when I use them interchangeably, you'll know why; each one cuts a little deeper into the fabric of the Constitution, cuts a little deeper into the "American Way." It's no accident that I rarely use the same one twice in any sentence. I encourage you to use these words often and vociferously in your conversations.
If we don't, we'll get all of them, in one neat, tidy, well-spoken man.

Believe All Things

For those of you who are, like me, LDS; worried about the fascists in charge; the totalitarian direction that our country is headed, I found a blog that you might like...or more accurately, it found me.
I'm posting a link to the article that was posted in the comment section yesterday. He's got some wonderful quotes from former prophets and apostles. Take a look.
We're all in this together, and if we build a strong enough web across our communities, and across the WWW, we CAN combat the creeping darkness. There will be too many of us to lock up and throw away.

Article on U.S. Constitution at Believe All Things .

Speak out. Speak up. Be a voice of Reason, but be a voice.

Natural Law Provides the Answers

You REALLY need to read this article. I've posted it on Facebook tonight, but it really needs a wider audience. I hadn't thought about things from this perspective, but the author is spot on.

The Natural Law Provides the Answers

National Debt Road Trip

This is a really great graphic. It shows just how badly Obama  has outspent ALL of his predecessors.

Dr. Ism's Formula

I posted this on Facebook the other day, A friend had discovered it. Please pass it on, it needs to be seen. It's an easily understood progression of the "ism's"

Whining and Running Scared

By now you've probably heard that the Campaigner in Chief hit all the Sunday News programs.
Not so fast. He hit all the loser stations
Take a look at these charts for some recent ratings:

By The Numbers

Hot Air Pundit

So he has insulted over half of America by this little act. Choosing little watched stations, inhabited by racist, communistic, windbags who can't tell a Democrocy from a Republic.Apparently he doesn't REALLY want to talk to Americans, he wants to talk to only those who agree with him.
Fine. Let him talk to all the wrong people, let him dig his hole that much deeper. It's all good.

I would like to point out some things he's said, from some of the transcripts; it's enlightening.

First, the FoxNews headline says "Obama has taken the media to task."
No, Just Kidding! He has only taken CONSERVATIVE media outlets to task. If you want to bash Bush, Cheney, Sarah Palin, who, while not IN the media, are extra worthy of bashing, or if you want to bash any number of "right wing"  political commentators, you are especially free to do so. Don't hold back.
But, if you protest socialized medicine, TARP, auto bailouts, or any number of the horrific things this president wants to do and is doing to our country, then NO WAY, the deal is off.
Here are just a couple of the comments that have stirred my ire this afternoon:

"The easiest way to get on television right now is to be really rude. If you're just being sensible and giving people the benefit of the doubt, and you're making your arguments, you don't get time on the nightly news," Obama said on ABC's "This Week."
Now for the record, I didn't hear Obama or anyone else tell Janine Garafolo or Bill Maher to be nice; I didn't hear him tell Keith Olbermann to be nice. Yet, if you are a dissenter from Obamas not so stealthy move to remake America, you are "racist","out of touch", "extreme", "rude", etc.
ALL I hear from the MSM is the fawning, syrupy praise for the Snake Oil Salesman in Chief, and snide, RUDE comments about Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, Limbaugh, Ingraham and others.

Here is the second quote:
"The easiest way to get 15 minutes on the news or your 15 minutes of fame is to be rude. ... That's something that I think needs to change," Obama said, lamenting the habit of "plucking out a sentence here or a comment there."
Do you see what I see? I'll tell you: "...I think that needs to change." NOT "I wish they wouldn't do that", or "I'd be happy to sit down with them", no, it's "...I think that needs to change."
This is a scary phrase guys.  Obama wants to change what you and I can say in regards to him and his policies/agenda, and he thinks it needs to change. The thought police will be part of Obamas "Civilian Security Force that's just as strong, just as well funded as the military."
It may not come tomorrow or next week, but it will come. There is already a back door plan to reinstate the "Fairness Doctrine", which we all know is anything BUT fair. The rest of us won't be far behind; McCain-Feingold has already set the ball in motion.

Now something I agree with O on:
"The media loves to have a conversation about race...this is catnip to the media because it is a running thread in American history that is very powerful and it evokes some very strong emotion."
Well yes they do, and they are fueled by racists in the black community who somehow want to be portrayed as  having an IOU in hand from every non-black in America, and Mr. O is right there with them (remember the(white) police "acted stupidly" fiasco?).

Now here, it sounds to me that if we all play nice, we might just get to redistribute some more of our own wealth:
"I think it's important for the media -- you know, not to do any media-bashing here -- to recognize that right now, in this 24-hour news cycle, the easiest way to get on CNN or FOX or any of the other stations -- MSNBC -- is to just say something rude and outrageous," Obama said. "And, you know, part of what I'd like to see is all of us reward decency and civility in our political discourse. That doesn't mean you can't be passionate, and that doesn't mean that you can't speak your mind. But I think we can all sort of take a step back here and remind ourselves who we are as a people."

Reminder to self:
I am an American, I've pledged to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. I have not pledged to be a servant to Barak Obama, nor to his minions. I pledge to be passionate in this pledge.
Somehow I doubt this is what he means when he says we need to remind ourselves who we are, but it is what *I* mean.
We are not wrong when we disagree with our president, our government, our senators, our congressmen(you may be wrong if you disagree with  your mother however, and I can't be held responsible for helping you out of that pickle ;) )

We have the First Amendment:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Tea Parties, Townhall questioners, Rally goers; all expressions of free speech, all expressions of angst.

Take heart. The left really IS the minority position in America. Polls show that an overwhelming majority of Americans are God-fearing, socially and fiscally conservative people. We don't all agree on what those definitions mean, but we are all on the same page.

Now that the sleeping giant has awakened (and make no mistake, if you are reading this, you are most likely part of that group), now that we are awake, we cannot afford to go back to sleep. We cannot afford to shrug our shoulders and look the other way any longer.
So go, exercise your freedom to speak, and make some noise. Be peaceful, be respectful, and don't let the Whiner in Chief bully you into silence.

Constitution Day!

In 1787, a group of men came together, initially to revise the Articles of Confederation which were barely holding the newly independent nation together. When it became apparent that this would not be sufficient, they began the awesome task of hammering out a Constitution, establishing a fundamental system of government heretofore unknown in the world.

What they did was remarkable on many counts, not the least of which was the fact that they had vast disagreements on what exactly should be included. (Patrick Henry, remember him? Mr. "Give me Liberty or give me death"? He opposed the ratification because it gave the Federal government too much power-I wonder what he's thinking about it NOW?! He also refused to sign it.)*

These Founding Fathers as they are affectionately known, were diverse in their backgrounds, occupations and temprements. It proved to be an interesting mix.

Fifty-five men met together to establish this, our beloved Republic.  The day, May 14th, that the Convention was to begin, only 8 delegates were present. It would be 11 more days before the Convention started in earnest; on the 25th of May, George Washington was elected president of the proceedings, and things got underway.

The debate raged for four long months, through the heat of a Philadelphia summer. Would we have a strong central government or would we have a limited government? Would the central government run the show, or would "we the people"?
Each article, each section was debated, and voted on; piece by piece the Constitution took shape.

In the end, 222 years ago today, the Constitution of the United States of America-a title not in use until this day, was ratified and signed by 39 of the delegates. A new nation was born, "concieved in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal" as Abraham Lincoln would later remind us.

As I ponder the incredible responsiblity we all have to uphold the Constitution, I am awed by what has transpired to bring freedom to this land. The intricate weaving of lives that were knit together by "divine Providence"
The Book of Mormon talks about this land as the Promised Land, and I know with all my heart that this is true.
In a prophecy to Joseph Smith, the Lord tells us that he raised up good men to establish this Constitution for us, His children.

These fifty-five men, raised up and inspired, created a nation that would change the political landscape forever. The question remains as to whether we can keep the gift they bequeathed to our care.

*Late Edit:
Patrick Henry didn't actually attend the Convention, he was an ardent states rights fan, and, while asked to be a delegate, refused.

What do you consider "racism"?

When I was a little girl, a friend of mine was over for the day. When my dad drove him home, I asked why the windows of Safeway were covered over with paper. The friend said "to keep the niggers from breaking in." I didn't know what "nigger" was, and the boy explained it was the blacks. My dad spoke up, and in a forcefully gentle tone explained that you didn't have to be black to be a "nigger"; bad people came in all colors and a "nigger" was someone of any color who wanted to do bad things.
That has stuck with me my whole life.

Fast forward to September of 2009. Socialized medicine is being debated now, and Congressman Joe Wilson yells out "You Lie" during the presidents speech to a rare joint session of congress; a week later, the man is branded a racist. The worst president EVER has branded Joe Wilson a racist for daring to 1.)disagree with the president, and 2.) to say so loud and clear.

I'm not here to debate the appropriateness of Mr. Wilson's remarks, that is an individual decision, based on our reaction to the event.

No, I want to address the lunacy of the race card.
Mr. Carter would have us believe that Joe (we) can't handle a black man as our president, so he (we) is (are) disagreeing with him-yelling "You Lie." We are marching on D.C., attending Townhall meetings, writing our representatives and whatever else we are doing, in protest of the systematic dismantling of our Republic , NOT because Barak Obama is a black man. This is the most insane thing I have ever heard.

Those who cry racism, are in fact the racists. When Jimmy Carter calls Joe a racist, it reveals Jimmy Carter as the racist. Joe yells "You Lie", Carter cries racism, so it can be inferred that Carter believes black men lie. How else can this be interpreted?
Janine Garafalo is another one: All "Tea Party" goers are rednecks, retards and racists who hate the black president.

So many people have worked hard over the last 40 or so years to wipe out racism, to get us to look beyond skin color; yet the left can't do it themselves! They can't believe that we would actually want our government to work like it's supposed to. They can't make a cogent argument to support their side, so they have to pull the race card, trying to make us feel guilty for something we have not done; to get us distracted by our guilt so that the shredding of the Constitution can continue. In fairness, the race card really is all they have.

Here's a clue. I am NOT RACIST. If I am afraid for my country,if I disagree with socialized medicine, if I disagree with TARP, the GM bailout, or any of the other illegal things our government is proposing, it's because a COMMUNIST is at the helm with a bunch of COMMUNISTS as advisors, NOT because they are black.
I don't look at skin color. Isn't that what we have been teaching children in America for generations? That's how it should be!
I know only ONE man out of all of my acquaintances who is a racist. I know of several in the public spectrum who are racist-Carter and Garafalo; Obama and Jones; Jackson and Sharpton; I'm sure you could name a few that I've missed.

The point is that America is NOT a racist country. Most of us do not look at skin color to determine someone's worth, yet the left keeps wanting to play the race card, and it's disgusting.

Note: It is not WRONG to disgree with your government, with your elected officials. They seem to forget, they work for you, and they work for me, and it is their OBLIGATION to listen to us, and to do as WE the People want.

We can disagree six ways to Sunday and we are still NOT racists for it. It may not make us Patriots either, but it most assuredly is not racism.

Calling all heroes

On this the 8th anniversary of 9/11, I've been pondering what to say. I found this article literally in the 11th hour, and I'd like you to read it. It is almost exactly what I'm feeling right now.
As we go forward, let's not be Democrats and Republicans, let's be Americans. Let's join our voices to stamp out the radicals on both sides of the aisle; let's begin now to stand for the Constitution, not a party; for freedom, not tyranny.
Our children are depending on us.

Article 1, Section 8

Please watch this video. It's a fabulous "in a nutshell" kind of thing that explains the role of congress as spelled out in the Constitution in Article 1, section 8.

I Pledge, Amended

I wrote the previous pledge in a hurry after watching the nuts in Hollywood make theirs. I was on my way out the door, and have had time to ponder. Here's my amended pledge;

"I Pledge to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. I Pledge to hold my elected officials responsible to the same. I Pledge to speak out against socialism in all of it's ugly forms. I Pledge to teach my children to respect the Inspired document that sets America apart and makes her great. I pledge to fight for free markets, and to end government intrusion into our lives.
I pledge to hold God as my Sovereign, to serve my fellow man, but to be a servant only unto Him."

THAT is my Pledge. What's yours?

I Pledge!

The messiah complex continues:

"To be a servant of our president..."??? Do these people even have the intelligence to understand the basic concepts of Liberty and Freedom???? I seriously doubt it.

Here's one:
"I Pledge to uphold the Constituiton of the United States of America. To hold my elected officials responsible. I pledge to speak out against socia...lism in all of it's ugly forms. I pledge to teach my children to respect the inspired document that sets America apart and makes her great. I pledge to fight for free market, and to end government intrusion into our lives."
That's my pledge. What's yours?
