No Bibles at Walter Reed Hospital?????

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Doesn’t anyone SEE what’s happening?
Doesn’t anyone CARE?

This is TRUE.
If you doubt it, just Google “SNOPES.COM” and query “WALTER REED HOSPITAL BANS BIBLE”

The soldiers who wake up in Walter Reed Medical Center are in Maryland --not communist China . But under the Navy's new rules, they may not know the difference!
After months of peeling away the military's core values, Obama's army is on the move, and this time, it has a high-value target: the Bible.
In a memo obtained by F.R.C. (Family Research Council), Navy officials have announced that "no religious items (including Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit."
The new orders are buried in a four-page document about patient care, which an Army officer forwarded to us in disbelief. Effective immediately, families, friends, and even pastors will have to check their beliefs at the door to visit one of the largest military hospitals in the United States .

Last night, after we circulated the memo to leaders on the Hill, an outraged Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) took to the House floor and blasted the policy. "Mr. Speaker, these military men and women who are recovering at Walter Reed and Bethesda have given their all for America ... They've defended and taken an oath to the Constitution, and here they are:

The people that come to visit them can't bring a religious artifact? They can't bring a Bible? ...A priest can't walk in and offer communion to a patient who might be on their deathbed because it's prohibited in this memo from the Department of the Navy?"

This is Obama's military, where homosexuality is celebrated and Christianity is censored; where witches are financed and crosses are scorned; and Bibles are banned; where same-sex "weddings" are encouraged but international charity is not. After three years of ideological warfare, the administration's intent is clear: to disarm the military of its biggest weapon. Faith.
Regardless of President Obama's agenda, there is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that empowers the government to stop family members from giving Bibles or crosses to their loved ones. And from a PR standpoint, I'm not sure the best way to boost approval ratings is by denying comfort to wounded warriors. Unfortunately for our troops, who have endured so much turmoil under the Obama administration, this is another blow. Hopefully, with the help of Congressman King and others, it's only a temporary one.

Americans, shout out about this one!!!!!

    I CARE! I'm also am amazed at this. It's so hard for me to believe it's come to this. What is so amazing is that in today's Navy, where tolerance is "in", they pick and choose what they want to be tolerant about and what they do not.

Thank you for spreading the news about this shameful development.

No Free Speech Zones!!!!!!!!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

If you do nothing else today, get on your computer and search the video of HR347 Anti Protest Law.

Obama has signed this IN SECRET, and we are in severe danger of losing our right to free speech.

It would be up to the Feds and police to determine if an individual, or a group of individuals, are protesting the current lifestyle of this administration.

This could include churches, church picnics in parks, school functions, tea party gatherings, you name it.

Today, the police arrested a man reading the Bible out loud 50 feet away from a CLOSED DMV.

If convicted of said crime, he can go to prison for up to 20 years.

Protesting will be a FELONY.

Now are you just going to sit quietly and believe there is nothing you can do??? Are you willing to live like pre-WWII Germany with the Brown Shirts?

Our Nation was founded by a group of people who dared to protest the King's restrictive way of life. Our founders were willing to lay down their lives for our freedom, and many of them did indeed lose their lives in the battle.

You can call your Congressmen and women, write to your newspapers, spread the word of this dangerous new law in any way you possibly can.

And yes, you CAN organize a protest against said law. Or at least participate in such a protest.

Believe me, I am going to do whatever I can to get this thing STOPPED, AND STOPPED NOW!!

This is more than Socialism; it is Facism, heading straight for Dictatorship. And it is on a very fast moving train.

I am a Delegate for my state, and I will shout to the high rafters to protect our rights as citizens of this country. But I am only one voice.

America needs all of us to protect her and our Constitutional Rights of Freedom.

This President has been caught so many times taking actions to alienate us from our freedoms. Remember when he said "Bitterly clinging to guns and religion"?

Do you recall what he said about our National Anthem that it was "promoting violence"?

How about stopping the National Day of Prayer?

Let's not even get in to forcing religions to pay for abortions against their beliefs.

His promise during his campaign that "energy costs will definitely sky-rocket" due to his plans??

We have all slumbered too long. We must now defend our country from enemies within.

Please join in the fight to preserve our country and our rights from all these stifling new laws, rules and regulations. Vote the enemies OUT!!!!

Are You Paying Attention to America?

Monday, March 26, 2012

Quietly, and with little fanfare, President Obama signed a "National Defense Resources Preparedness" Executive Order on Friday. As the name suggests, the order intends to shore up the country's national defense resources in advance of a national emergency.

To be fair, this is not the first time that such an order has been written. Presidents Bush (II), Clinton, Reagan, and even Eisenhower provided directives in the same spirit as President Obama's order-- providing some level of government commandeering in times of national emergency.

In the past, these orders have related to things like production capacity for defense contractors, or giving FEMA authority to resolve disputes between other departments in federally designated emergency areas.

President Obama's order, however, takes things much, much further.

(1) The order vastly expands the role of Homeland Security... as if these knuckleheads didn't already have too much influence in people's lives. Apparently highways, shopping malls, airports, bus stations, Wal-Marts, hotels, train stations, etc. aren't enough for DHS. Now the Secretary of DHS will:

a) "advise the President on issues of national defense resource preparedness".

This one is really clear. Under normal circumstances, matters related to defense would fall under the Secretary of Defense... or perhaps the National Security Advisor. Giving such responsibility to DHS suggests that the government is expecting an emergency from within.

b) "provide for the central coordination of the plans and programs... under this order, and provide guidance to agencies assigned functions under this order..."

DHS now has authority to direct the emergency preparedness of every other government department. The Secretary of Homeland Security has effectively become the Emergency Czar.

c) have oversight of "all other national defense programs, including civil defense and continuity of Government."

In case it wasn't clear before, the people who molest children and radiate travelers will have total and complete control in some event defined as a national emergency in the sole discretion of the President.

(2) The order further provides for an effective nationalization of the entire US economy in the event of an emergency.

The Secretary of Labor, for example, will "collect and maintain data necessary to make a continuing appraisal of the Nation's workforce needs for purposes of national defense" and then "formulate plans, programs, and policies for meeting the labor requirements of actions to be taken for national defense purposes."

In other words, the Labor Department becomes the Ministry of Plenty, and all the good little citizens will be forcibly reallocated to other jobs. This turned out really well for the Soviets.

(3) The purpose of this order, for example, is to "take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements;"

It goes on to list 'adequate resources' to include things like:

(i) "all forms of energy including petroleum, gas (both natural and manufactured), electricity, solid fuels... solar, wind, other types of renewable energy, atomic energy", etc.

(ii) "all usable water, from all sources, within the jurisdiction of the United States, that can be managed, controlled, and allocated to meet emergency requirements..."

(iii) "all commodities and products... that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals..."

(iv) "drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment required to diagnose, mitigate or prevent the impairment of, improve, treat, cure, or restore the physical or mental health conditions of the population."

Hmmmm. Food. Water. Energy. Medicine. Security. All the stuff that human beings need at a basic level to survive. Except that Obama's executive order puts all of these resources under control of the government and allocates them exclusively to meet the needs of government.

In this capacity, we are all merely subordinates to the interests of the state... and it should be absolutely clear at this point where normal people stand in the grand pecking order: Citizens are resources to be exploited and sacrificed in order to ensure the continuity of government.

In the event of some catastrophe, you will be stripped of basic resources so that the government can survive. A free society cannot exist under a system in which the state exercises such control... or has the authority to exercise such control.

Taken in conjunction with the NSA's new Utah spy center (which will collect and archive the complete contents of every email, tweet, Facebook post, Google search, phone call, and text message) and the National Defense Authorization Act, it's clear that the Obama administration is expecting trouble from within.

And with good reason. By every possible calculation (except flat-out fraud), the US government is completely insolvent, and its balance sheet is growing worse by the day. The dollar is beginning to be seriously challenged as the global reserve standard, and every effort politicians make to 'fix' the economy only makes things worse.

As a matter of convenience, people are willing to deal with a lot of pain. They'll suffer through wars, recessions, and all sorts of national unpleasantness. But the moment that rapidly decaying economics and shortages prevent people from being able to put food on the table for their families, they rise up. Just look at the Arab Spring.

This is all playing out with nearly perfect historical precision. Time and time again throughout history as once great empires accelerated their declines, governments have taken steps to protect their interests against the people.

In the past, they have imposed curfews, disarmed the population, curtailed civil liberties, and declared national emergencies, usually against some great faceless enemy from abroad who threatens their way of life.

As it turns out, though, our great faceless enemy is not some mythical boogeyman living in a cave, nor some angry brown person who hates us for our freedoms... but the very people within the system who've taken an oath to 'support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'

Have you hit your breaking point yet?

“A man’s admiration for absolute government is proportionate to the contempt he feels for those around him”. de Tocqueville

A quote from a 1969 speech from William T. Gossett, then president of the American Bar Association:
"The rule of law can be wiped out in one misguided, however well-intentioned generation. And if that should happen, it could take a century of striving and ordeal to restore it, and then only at the cost of the lives of many good men and women."

Until tomorrow, Pay Attention!!

Today's Reading

Monday, March 19, 2012

Today's reading is from the Book of Corporate Life, Chapter 1, verses 1-15.

1. In the beginning was The Plan.
2. And then came the Assumptions.
3. And the Assumptions were without form.
4. And the Plan was without Substance.
5. And darkness was upon the face of the Workers.
6. And the Workers spoke among themselves saying, "It is a crock of crap and it stinks."
7. And the Workers went unto their Supervisors and said, "It is a crock of dung and we cannot live with the smell."
8. And the Supervisors went unto their Managers saying, "It is a container of organic waste, and it is very strong, such that none may abide by it."
9. And the Managers went unto their Directors, saying, "It is a vessel of fertilizer, and none may abide its strength."
10. And the Directors spoke among themselves, saying to one another, "It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
11. And the directors went to the Vice Presidents, saying unto them, "It promotes growth, and it is very powerful."
12. And the Vice Presidents went to the President, saying unto him, "It has very powerful effects."
13. And the President looked upon the Plan and saw that it was good.
14. And the Plan became Policy.
15. And that is how s**t happens.

I Wish You Love & Laughter & Great Big Grins...

Obama's Lie about our Oil

Monday, March 12, 2012

Gas prices shot up 18 cents on average nationwide over the past two weeks, according to the latest Lundberg survey.

That puts the average cost of regular gas at $3.69 a gallon. Of course, many of you around the country are already paying over $4.

President Obama, members of his administration, Democrats in Congress, and his allies on the left all make the same case: we can't "drill our way" out of this problem.

They say we use a quarter of the world's oil, but only have 2% of the world's oil reserves. So, do the math. They say it's impossible, but here's how he gets to that mythical 2%.

For simplicity, we'll call it Obama's big oil lie because that's what it is.

They're only counting proven oil reserves.

The truth is that 2% oil reserves figure is whatever the government says it is.

Here’s the official definition from the non-partisan Congressional Research service.

Proven reserves are: "certainty to be recoverable in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions."

The key word there is "existing" conditions.

The U.S. has around 20 billion barrels in proven reserves, but the amount of undiscovered so called "technically recoverable" oil is over seven times that.

Those are the government's own figures!

And we can get that oil using today's technology. In fact, the U.S. has nearly 1.5 trillion barrels of oil.

That's enough to fuel the present needs in the U.S. for around 250 years, according to the Institute for Energy Research.

Former President of Shell Oil on FBN earlier today on how we could easily get back to producing 10 million barrels a day:

"The best source for new oil is the world's largest consumer economy: this country. We could go back to 10 million barrels if we had the permitting that would enable it to happen. We have the oil. There is more oil in this country that we're not allowed to get at than oil we're allowed to get at.”

But much of the oil is off limits thanks to the policies of this President:

-The outer Continental shelf.

-The Arctic National Wildlife Reserve in Anwar.

-And Shale Oil where the United States has the largest deposits in the world estimated by the government to be over 2 trillion barrels.

Even when the production is not in this country, the President will do anything he can to stop it, like blocking the Keystone pipeline.

Also, what the President is refusing to acknowledge is the United States is in the middle of an oil boom thanks to new technology like deep-water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

So the President needs to stop with the 2% lie.

The solutions are right in front of us, but this administration flatly refuses to explore them.

    I'm with DSHONEYC on this one. We need to explore alternative energy sources and become less dependent on oil. Renewable energy is a wonderful resource, and BIG OIL is doing their very best to keep it from becoming a successful alternative. I'm not a fan of the current administration, but this is problem is bigger than the President. The only way we're going to change this is by voting everyone of those "good ol' oil boys" out and replace them with people who are going to stand firm to progressing alternative energy choices...either that or we're going to have to have an epic energy event that forces us to seek alternative resources...I'll let you decide which one will come first.

  One of the things rarely mentioned about gas prices is the effect of petrodollars. You see all of the world used to buy oil using petrodollars which are US dollars. US dollars were good because it was such a stable currency and since the whole world used US dollars to buy stuff it further stabilized it. Iran broke ranks and now sells oil for Yen and Euros. The value of the US dollar would swing wildly without the stabilizing effect of being the world currency for oil. If other oil producing nations follow Iran's lead it could be very bad for the American economy and the price of foreign oil.
Agreed that speculation is a large factor in oil prices. During the Enron days the courts ruled that Enron creating artificial electrical shortages to run up the price of electricity was not illegal and was simply the business they were in. Applying the same logic to oil companies we are all at the mercy of speculators.

    The price of oil (no matter who drills it - US of them) is set based on the price of a barrel of crude. That price is not set by policy, but rather by a number of factors including world-wide demand, speculators, and uncertainty in the marketplace. Just because there is more oil pumping does not guarantee lower prices. Who controls refinery production? Somehow I cannot picture Exxon or BP or Shell selling a barrel of oil under what others are charging. They are much too greedy for that...and they are protected by guess who?

Sorry can't chalk this up to the President, no matter what party. The oil game is just that - a BIG GAME. I vote for more alternatives to oil and less dependence on filling up my gas tank every week.

PS I paid $4.25 last week...

  We will never run out of oil. What we are running out of is cheap oil. There is more oil in Canadian tar sands than in all of the middle east but until recently there was only a single pilot plant to extract oil. When oil is over $100US/barrel it begins to be economical to extract oil from the sands. There are also huge reserves of oil shale but it is even more expensive to extract than tar sands.
We are pumping more oil now than when President Obama got into office and we continue to drill new wells. Our reliance on foreign oil is also lower than when he entered office; in 2008 we imported most of the oil we used but in 2011 we domestically produce most of the oil we use. While the oil companies are always eager for more places to drill they have not come come close to exploring all the oil leases they already have.
The US hit peak oil production in the 1970's. There is lots more oil down there but the remaining oil is more expensive and technically challenging to retrieve. As technology improves and the price of oil rises more of this expensive oil will be pumped. Until then the fact that expensive oil exists under the US will not drive gas prices down.
The hubub about gas prices is simply a political attack on President Obama someplace where they consider him vulnerable. Moreover, it is a power grab for oil companies eager to exploit consumer discontent to reduce regulation.
Domestic energy is a priority of the Obama administration but they simply want it done in a safe and environmentally responsible way. We do not need another New Horizon's disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

    It's a simple case of whose paying for the president to stay president. Are there reserves? Absolutely. Will Big Oil allow them to be opened? Nope. We'll keep paying through the nose because we're so dependent on everything foreign now that most Americans refuse to consider alternatives. I personally want to ask every single person who voted for Pres. Obama what they think of his "changes" now.
