Yesterday, the NY Times continued its’ attack upon any and all attached in some way to the Tea Party movements; this time those who are unemployed and having the gall to accept unemployment or other low income subsidies.
When Tom Grimes lost his job as a financial consultant 15 months ago, he called his congressman, a Democrat, for help getting government health care.
Though, as Michael Kazin, the author of “The Populist Persuasion,” notes, they tended to push for more government involvement. The Tea Party vehemently wants less — though a number of its members acknowledge that they are relying on government programs for help. [emphasis mine]
Here’s where the NY Times, and really all leftists get it wrong, the safety nets of unemployment, food stamps etc. are not wanted but taken as a final option which has disrupted the employability of otherwise qualified people. I know this because I too, a Conservative, have “been on the welfare” for the last 7 months after exhausting my savings. I tried my best to not get here, but unfortunately, with the anti-business rhetoric emanating from Washington, forcing small business owners to avoid creating new jobs till they understand what all the changes will cost them.
Moreover, with this new found free-time, we who have been so busy being productive and adding to the tax revenues (which are still declining) are able to expand the right of center view point most of America holds. Doing so will produce a legislative result in 2010 clearing away the Democrat choke-hold over the nation. That is why those of us who have never protested, been activists or be involved in much political activity previously can ensure America will not fall again to the socialism of the left.
Support Conservative candidates:
 Erick Erickson is 100% correct by the way in saying the extension of unemployment is a disincentive to working. I, myself have given up looking for a job here in Arizona and just collect my $265/week till I move to Denver.
"Signs and placards to be left at the door"
State Democrats Krysten Sinema (D-15), Nancy Young Wright (D-26) and Pat Fleming (D-25) held a meeting in Marana, AZ at Dove Mountain Resort to "address the hopes, fears, concerns, ideas and questions folks may have…concerning healthcare reform".
Speaking is Krysten Sinema (D-15) is on the White House Health Reform Task Force. She was the only legislator from Arizona to be chosen and that’s because the Obama Administration wanted the most “progressive” lawmaker from the State of Arizona. And boy is she that.
She said as a member of the task force, one of her responsibilities is to listen to Arizonans’ thoughts and communicate them back to Congress and the president. Krysten Sinema (D-15)
As long as those thoughts do not conflict with her views that Obamacare is the panacea for all.
And of course, Rep. Gabrille Giffords (D-AZ) is Missing In Action.
Now would be a good time to recommend giving a contribution to Jesse Kelly, Rep Giffords replacement.
Great thanks to Zoie Walden for taking the time to meander up to this event and get the video. Without her tireless efforts the hypocrisy of yet another Democrat would not be made public.
"Sometimes Chicken Come Home To Roost"
I like chickens. I would like to have one for my yard. If being a chicken means defeating Obamacare, then I AM A CHICKEN!!
How true. All that Bush is Hitler, Assassinate the President movie, Illegitimate and so on drivel that originated from Kos, Moveon.org and the others was fun, for them. Now that those same (but hardly new) political manipulation tactics are being used against The One, well, it’s not so much fun any more.
Elections matter. Vote for the right candidate.
If you live in the Texas 25th district, you need to contact Rep. Lloyd Dogget.
201 Cannon House Office Bldg • Independence and 1st St, SE • Washington DC 20515 • Phone: 202-225-4865
300 East 8th St. #763 • Federal Building • Austin, TX 78701 • Phone: 512-916-5921 • 1-866-916-5921
On August 3rd Rep. Lloyd Dogget (D-TX-25) was on Hardball and said:
Many of these people were summoned in by the local Libertarian and Republican parties, they don’t even live in the neighborhood…a desperation tactic.
A mob scene (the protests) are just one way to intimidate members into weakening their position
In my case it just reaffirmed my resolve to go back (to DC) to get a strong public plan, force more competition…and get the reform my constituents want.
Rep. Dogget is ready and willing to vote for the Health Care Bill, regardless of what the good people of Austin have to say about it. Let him know that this will be his last term in Congress if he does.

First dear reader allow me to introduce you to Dr. Warren Hern, Director of the Boulder (Colorado) Abortion Clinic. This man (more aptly, sick bastard) preaches his success of killing unborn babies since 1975 and preach he does, at just about every opportunity he gets. Dr. Hern is the presenter of session OOS 7-1: Pulse of the planet: An epidemiologist’s global ecological diagnosis at the Ecological Society of America’s 94th annual meeting in Albuquerque, NM pontificates that you, I and of course not himself are a malignant growth upon Mother Earth.
If you have never heard of the Ecological Society of America they are in all senses a group of leftist enviro-whack jobs. Oh, and we are all the descendants of amoebas.
The session OOS 7-1: Pulse of the planet: An epidemiologist’s global ecological diagnosis comes to the WRONG conclusion that:
The most significant characteristic of malignancy is uncontrolled growth, and that is displayed in global energy use by urban populations.
Results/Conclusions The human species as a whole now displays four major characteristics of a malignant process: rapid, uncontrolled growth; invasion and destruction of adjacent normal tissues (ecosystems); metastasis (distant colonization); and dedifferentiation (loss of distinctiveness in individual components). We have become a malignant ecopathologic process.
He points out that like the accelerated growth of a cancer, the human population has quadrupled in the past 100 years, and at this rate will reach a size in 2025 that leads to global collapse and catastrophe.
And there you have it. Advice from an abortion doctor who kills babies for profit that humans are a scourge upon the earth and that we will all die. Of course Dr. Hern is a complete fool; everyone knows that Algore has set the date of earth’s destruction in January 2016, a full 9 years before this WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE prediction.
And lastly, what would some crazy earth ending prediction by a tin foil hat nut be without the obligatory socialist rhetoric calling for a government on high to regulate our existence.
The hope from above is that governments will finally realize that never-ending economic growth is incompatible with the finite material resources Earth has to offer, and begin to manage those resources more fairly and equitably through some kind of world government.
Note: I do apologize for using the New Scientist links. I still feel dirty, even after a Pine Sol and bleach shower.
No fights at this Townhall so the SEIU union thugs must have been absent.
"I think people are justifiably angry at the way Congress has been operating,"
Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
From what I have read so far the event was (relatively) well behaved and other than some heated disagreements, which is to be expected, it was a civil exchange of ideas. Now here is a Parliament fight to watch.
Rep. Flake took and responded to UNSCRIPTED questions from the people:
Q: Do you believe that the Democrats will be using this bill as a means to an end to get everyone on a government healthcare system?
A: Yes, this legislation "will inevitably lead to [everyone being on] a single-payer system," …to have insurance, you’ll have to be on the government’s rolls.
Q: How in the world can we allow our children to have to pay for this down the road?
A: "We are committing generational theft"
Q: How do you respond to the idea that the government will essentially be setting standards on who lives and who dies?
A: The "government will have to ration either by costs or by services. It’s a legitimate fear of many that the government will start to ration services."

DISCLAIMER: I so wanted to go but this having to work thing got in the way.
par⋅a⋅lip⋅sis /ˌpærəˈlɪpsɪs/ Rhetoric.
the suggestion, by deliberately concise treatment of a topic, that much of significance is being omitted, as in “not to mention other faults.
Meet Carlos Watson, MSNBC contributor and host of The C Note in his commentary forwarded the position that anyone who calls Obama a Socialist is really calling him a Ni***. Aside from the complete ignorance of Mr. Watson and others as to what Socialism is, something that describes Obama’s policies precisely, their immediate run to pull the race card is indicative of the collapse of ideals the left is experiencing.
Just some advice MSNBC contributors and others who believe that it’s just "white folks" who oppose Obamacare, it’s YOUR racism that is on display.
