Bruce McPherson Drops GOP Affiliation

Wow, apparently votes out-trump principles, as Bruce McPherson (currently in a close race with Democrat, Eric Hammer for county supervisor in Santa Cruz, CA) is going-for-the-votes.

McPherson said, "I don't want to be identified as right or left."  Americans have a critical choice this November, and this man doesn't want to take a stand on principles? Let me give him a hand -- Grow a pair, and defend your country, not your hide!

This is the kind of 'moderate' thinking that makes conservatives pull out their hair. Nothing could be more clear in this upcoming election. We will either be a country run by its people, as founded by some of the bravest men and women in history in search of religious and personal freedom, or a country run by government.

We have already had a major taste of it over the past four years, and we are close - so very close to losing our freedom. America does not need people like McPherson, afraid to take a stand for the sake of power. Sound familiar?

Being a huge believer in things happen for a reason, Obama truly woke up the sleeping giant to save a country that's been losing its freedom bit by precious bit over the last few decades. Now, California needs a major clean out, and it's going to take years to do it, but we should never give in:

"Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense." Sir Winston Churchill 1941

It was a day I will never forget.  After screening, what I thought was, another annoying solicitation phone call, I heard the words, "We're looking for the granddaughter of James Montgomery Flagg for a dedication in his honor at Fort Knox."

It was early spring in 2001, ironically just 3 months before 9-11, and plans were underway for a regal ceremony filled with high ranking military, honor guard, military marching band, a full fledged canon salute, and congratulatory letter from President George W. Bush.  The dedication was on Flag(g) Day, June 14th, 2001 year of Our Lord. It was also the 226th birthday of the United States Army.  Now the James Montgomery Flagg Memorial Field.

Flag Day was also a special day for Flagg's daughter (my Mother), who celebrated it each year with her own brand of pomp and circumstance.  So, Happy Flag Day to a great patriot, Happy Flag Day to my Mom, and Happy Flag Day America, the greatest country in the world.

Remember Old Glory!

This Thursday, June 14th, is Flag Day. It commemorates the same day 235 years ago, when, in 1777, the Continental Congress passed a resolution "that the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation." Since that time, generations of Americans have celebrated the flag as a symbol of our God-given freedoms and God-blessed nation, and in every American military campaign, "Old Glory" has been a symbol of our freedom.

Interestingly, "Old Glory" was the name that Captain William Driver placed on a flag he was presented in 1831. The nickname given to that flag became so well known that during the Civil War, the Confederates tried unsuccessfully to confiscate and destroy Captain Driver’s flag that he had sewn into his bedcover to protect. In 1862, when Union soldiers occupied Nashville, Driver took out his flag and flew it over the Capitol as a symbol that "Old Glory" stood firm.

We still honor "Old Glory" today by celebrating Flag Day each year. The first Flag Day celebration occurred in Wisconsin in 1885, when a schoolteacher had his students observe June 14 as "Flag Birthday," or "Flag Day." This idea inspired others around the nation to continue the practice and as the celebrations grew, the idea received national recognition. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation calling for the national celebration of Flag Day, thus establishing it as a national event.

As you celebrate this year’s Flag Day, educate yourself on the greatness of America's founding, and inspire others to do the same! Happy Flag Day!

Lying has become an art form with Obama. He has been one from the beginning when he promised America, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor". Last week he told such a whopper, that even the Washington Post gave him 3 Pinocchios. The comparisons he uses with President Reagan are insulting, but be that as it may, Obama's Iowa campaign speech was full of whoppers, the best one being:
"But what my opponent didn't tell you was that federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years."
Keith Hennessey, economist who served 6+ years as Director of the National Economic Council for President George W. Bush, has responded with a detailed list of the flaws, and writes:
Problem #1: The President argues that his fiscal stimulus law, enacted in February 2009, had a big positive effect on the growth rate of the economy. We are now asked to believe that President Obama’s policies did not significantly increase spending but did significantly increase economic growth. This is, to say the least, an intellectually inconsistent argument. The whole Keynesian fiscal stimulus argument is premised on a significant increase in government spending.
Problem #2: Mr. Nutting assumes that since a President serves a four year term he should be measured for four budget years. But since budget years begin in October and Presidential terms begin in January, the fairest and most accurate way to measure the budget effects of a one-term President is to look at five budget years, not four.

As we near the Nov-2012 election, more and more Americans are realizing how crucial it is. Help Americans join the crusade to get out the vote by sending a reminder: How's That "Hope & Change" Working for You? sticky notes. Bring your own pad with your written message, or pick up some pre-printed pads at Patriot Depot, join the Facebook campaign.

Remind them
At the Pump (gas prices were $1.89 when Obama took office)
At the Grocery Store (shelves are a good spot, especially cereal)
At the Doctor's Office (where Obamacare is kicking in)
In Restrooms (the towel dispense is nice and suttle)
On Shopping Carts
On ATM machines (right where you pull out your money)
At Flea Markets (where we have to sell our possessions to survive)
At Fast Food Drive Throughs (on the order screen by the price)
On Bulletin Boards (in markets and local restaurants)
At the Car Wash
In the Laundrymat

We've got to call attention to the failure of the Obama Administration, and make them accountable for these higher prices and this no-growth economy. These are an inexpensive way to spread the word of Obama's failure while having fun at the same time, and we've all got some. Place them where it hurts the most; next to the price of food or beside the price of gas, not obstructing it.

Inflation is hurting America and it not being reported because they have change the template. How can you not include gas and food? We pay for it every day, and it should be a constant reminder of why Obama cannot have another four years. And those four years would be completely un-tethered. Both Barack Obama and Joe Biden have talked of ruling without the consent of Congress, and that should scare the daylights out of every red-blooded American.

If you feel comfortable, take a photo of it and upload it on your Facebook, or on the Facebook page of "How's That Hope & Change Working for You Campaign?", or post it here. Remember to be respectful, not destructive, respect property rights. We are the silent majority, respecting every individual's right for freedom and the opportunity to express our beliefs.

God bless America

Jan Brewer's Photo with Obama

It's about time someone stood up to the Emporer With No Clothes, and Governor Jan Brewer's just the one to do it.

As Phyllis Schlafly of Eagle Forum says:

Barack Obama wasn't interested in accepting Governor Brewer's invitation to visit the border himself. He just wants to use executive-branch powers to stop Arizona from doing anything to defend itself.

Obama picked a fight with a female Governor and she didn't roll over. Three cheers for Jan Brewer.
