WE ARE FIGHTING TO SAVE THE WORLD'S GREATEST COUNTRY - (from Ben Stein’s column, DREEMZ, on page 23 of the JANUARY .2010 Edition of “NEWSMAX”) Well said, Ben!
I AM WRITING THIS IN MID NOVEMBER. THIS MEANS THAT IN ABOUT 12 DAYS, I will be 65. That makes me officially a senior citizen. I don't get Social Security, but I do have Medicare now. It is just a thin little paper card, not even plastic, but it makes me feel old. I don't like it.
But as I look back on my 65 years, as all… Continue

I say "Mr." because YOU do not represent me. As the ‘president" you do not represent me and my fiscal conservatism! No "intelligent" American could possibly support your backroom "Chicago-style" bought health-care agenda by buying votes as you have on the substance of healthcare reform which you claim that you wanted for the American people.
There is a big difference in "reform" and what your legislation in demanding that we should accept as Americans! Nor have you… Continue

In Beck's daily email today, he stated the following:
You are dumb, unsophisticated
Last night on TV Glenn highlighted the stupidity of an article by Joe Klein of Time where he said conservatives were stupid for not supporting the stimulus because they didn't even know about that 'magical' $60-$80' arriving in their paycheck courtesy of Uncle Sam. How could you ever miss $60 in your paycheck? And how could you miss all the liberals dancing in the streets over their new… Continue

As one of your constituents, I feel that our views and requests have not been represented, and even ignored, by you sir.

Once again our fellow Patriots in Massachusetts have led the way with another Tea Party by throwing the Democrats out of ...THEIR ...US Senate seat. Electing Scott Brown to the US Senate has fired a shot against tyranny just like at Lexington and Concord. The Obama Administration has now been put on notice by WE THE PEOPLE that we don't like his Marxist policies and back room deals. Our Country is heading toward financial ruin if we don't continue to take back our Nation ....State by State… Continue

Still a disorganized 'tea party'
The conservative movement, energized by Republican Scott Brown's Senate victory in Massachusetts, struggles to find national unity.

Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values...! HB 1330

EDITORIAL: Guns decrease murder rates
In Washington, the best defense is self-defense
By THE WASHINGTON TIMES
More guns in law-abiding hands mean less crime. The District of Columbia proves the point.
Reading most press accounts, one would be forgiven for thinking Armageddon had arrived after the Supreme Court struck down the District's handgun ban in 2008. Predictions sprung forth from all directions that allowing more… Continue

That the United States government has been accepting huge numbers of what amounts to barbarians from Third World nations by itself is outrageous. That our government continues to grant blanket amnesty to huge numbers of criminals that have been more or less thrown out of the third world nations they came from is suspect to say the least--especially when one considers the negative and growing impact it has been having on our society: 9000 homicides per year are committed by non-legal immigrants… Continue

Conservatives: Beware of McCain Regression Syndrome

Pay attention: In the afterglow of the Massachusetts Miracle, there are flickers of peril for the right. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but like Paul Revere’s midnight message, consider this warning “a cry of defiance, and not of fear.” Conservatives have worked hard to rebuild after Big Government Republican John McCain’s defeat. But McCain isn’t going gently into that good… Continue
