Don’t Shoot The Messenger


With growing momentum, the left has shouted the global warming message from the rooftops. While getting my bachelor’s degree in Chemistry, I had global warming spoon fed to me during a book report I had to do on Al Gore’s The Earth in the Balance. I rejected its message even before it was widely discussed.

That was then.  Since then we have heard the message morph into “Climate Change” and “Environmental Justice”, but it still has the same goal…to deprive American citizens of their freedom to think for themselves.  Written during WWII, F.A. Hayek, a member of the London School of Economics, saw this change in England, how much more do we see it now?

It is not difficult to deprive the great majority of independent thought.  But the minority who will retain an inclination to criticize must also be silenced. ~F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

We see people belittled and ridiculed for the audacity of merely disagreeing that Climate Change is a result of America’s prosperity.  Climate change supporters are deniers of their own inconvenient truth. There are periods of warming and cooling throughout the history of our planet that pre-date the industrialization of our society.

It is now difficult to discern who speaks truthfully and who has an agenda.  Dr. Landsea, a hurricane researcher warned that the IPCC’s agenda had become politicized back in 2005 in his Open Letter to the Community.

It is beyond me why my colleagues would utilize the media to push an unsupported agenda that recent hurricane activity has been due to global warming. ~ Dr. Landsea

I personally cannot in good faith continue to contribute to a process that I view as both being motivated by pre-conceived agendas and being scientifically unsound. ~ Dr. Landsea

The Chicago Climate Exchange, set up in 2003, stood to benefit from global warming alarm and subsequent carbon dioxide emission regulation from the EPA.  The question is why???  Why would then 2008 Presidential candidate Obama tell the nation our energy prices would necessarily skyrocket? How is that good for We The People?

Hayek’s concerns from a different time and place are just as true today. The common thread is the underlying reason why…

…every act of the government, must become sacrosanct and exempt from criticism.  If the people are to support the common effort without hesitation, they must be convinced that not only the end aimed at but also the means chosen are the right ones. The official creed, to which adherence must be enforced, will therefore comprise all the views about facts on which the plan is based. Public criticism or even expression of doubt must be suppressed because they tend to weaken public support. ~ F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom

We The People must recognize that the continual erosion of our freedom as this fundamental transformation seeks to socialize this nation requires silence from the opposition.  Ridicule has been used to attempt to silence Americans who dare to disagree with the left.

Don’t lose hope.  Never be silent!

With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. ~Matthew 19:26 (ESV)

God Bless America!

Citizens Come First!


California farmers are watching their crops wither and die because of the Delta Smelt,  a fish that was added to the endangered species list.  Because of this otherwise innocuous act, the pumps were turned off that fed all of the irrigation waters for the San Joaquin Valley and the canals have dried up.  Now unemployment in this area is up and it’s a man-made drought.  Since when do fish come before the tax-paying citizens of the United States?

We The People better sit up and take note.  The Federal Government has sided with a fish ahead of the general welfare of the taxpayers in that area.  How long will it be before you find yourself in the same position?  How long will it be before Washington takes over the failing agriculture communities because they are too big to fail?  So far, 80,000 jobs have been lost according to Fox News.  Beyond the jobs, those salaries are no longer paying bills, buying groceries and clothes.  When we’re in economic trouble already, it doesn’t make sense to kick them while they’re down.  The excuse is an endangered fish, but it is no longer impossible to believe that another industry could be nationalized for the good of We The People.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty  and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

~~The Declaration of Independence

July 4, 1776

Our country was founded on the ideal that leaders only lead with the consent of We The People.  They are to act in our best interest, not their own.  When we see the personal interests of politicians, because they have worked so hard to earn the title “Senator”, come before the interests of the American people it is time to remind Washington who they work for.  The unemployed citizens of Mendota, who are apparently less important than a fish, need to hear from the rest of We The People that they are not alone.  Call, Fax, E-mail, write, sky-write, or tweet your representatives in Washington.  Don’t let the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels get by with deliberately hurting tax paying citizens’ futures.  This is a nation by the people, for the people and of the people.  It is irresponsible to hurt so many with an avoidable drought.

Don’t be fooled and think you will not be next.  Speak up or loose it forever.

Is This America?


constitutionI am standing in total disbelief about the events I am witnessing here in America.

  • For reasons I cannot comprehend, the media is ignoring the import of what is going on in our country.  They attack anyone who doesn’t agree with the President or his policies.  Anyone with an opposing voice is shouted down and belittled.
  • A California pastor and his wife were told they needed a very expensive permit to have a bible study in their home (12- 15 people) because it was a religious gathering.  This is a Constitutional right being abused.
  • For the 2010 Census, “Right Wing Extremists” are being excluded from participating as census takers.  This is significant because then who will be able to argue when redistricting happens and conservatives loose what little representation they have in Washington.
  • A president of the United States has side-stepped the bankruptcy process that is already in place to be able to dictate the will of the UAW and other special interests with GM.  GM filed for bankruptcy with a commitment of $50 Billion dollars for a $500 Million dollar company in US tax dollars.
  • The Service Employees Union had a direct line to the White House when the California Governor slashed wages in an effort to balance the CA budget shortfalls.  Later SEU bragged they had raised 60.7 Million dollars and put Mr. Obama in office.
  • A president of the United States has roamed around the globe apologizing for America when in fact the US and Great Brittan have done more to further the cause of oppressed individuals than all other nations.  The president has made us look weak enough that Korea is ignoring our pleas to end the nuclear testing.
  • America has turned it’s back on Isreal.  The Israeli’s are not the agressors.  Why has our policy changed.
  • A woman nominated for Supreme Court of the United States is presented  based on her empathy.  The fact that she has made a statement before a Latino organization that stated that “A wise Latina woman” is more qualified to determine Constitutionality than a “white male”.  There is no sugar coating that remark.  It was said. There is no context that will help it either.
  • June 2009 was just named as Gay, Lesbian and Transgender Pride Month.  I am concerned when we are celebrating what used to be called sin.  I know that there are some who will say that I am intolerant because I cannot embrace that way of life.  I am sorry if  you feel that way.  I can love the sinner even if I can’t accept the sin.  I am not perfect and don’t pretend to be so.
  • Our deluded elected officials have bought into the idea that we can spend our way out of our economic mess.  Can anyone explain to me how we are going to add interest onto funds we don’t already have and NOT raise taxes?  The bill will come due.  Right now China is holding a lot of our debt.  When they decide to stop playing, our house of cards will collapse and we will become a 3rd world nation over night.
  • The Constitution and the ideals our Founding Fathers used to form this nation have been thrown out in favor of Socialism.  No matter what you call it, if you take away the fruits of their labors from the people creating wealth and working hard to give as entitlements to those who are less fortunate it’s not democracy.

These are just a few of the current events that cause me to loose confidence that I am still in America.  The America that I love deeply is one that adhere’s to the Constitution, respects the individual rights of it’s citizens and does what is right and honorable and good in the world.  The America I grew up in valued traditional marriage, solid education and excellence in all things.  The America I know is one where it’s citizens are proud of their heritage and confident in their future.  The America that I will mourn for will cease to exsist if we do not stop being the SILENT MAJORITY.

Keep in mind, there is no more time.  If you don’t think you can make a difference, think again.  America needs a grass roots reminder to Congress and the President – “You work for us.”  We cannot silently sit back and accept these blatant abuses of power.  It is important that you speak up and be counted.  God Bless America.

Will Justice Still Be Blind?


Blind_Justice.svg.medThe role of the Supreme Court Justices often remains a lofty ideal, but not one that intrudes daily into our living rooms.   With President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, America needs to take notice and speak out.  Judge Sotomayor is being considered, not because of an impressive record as a Constitutional Jurist, but for her radical record as a judicial activist.

– Supreme Court nominee, federal appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor, speaking to a Berkeley La Raza Law Journal in 2001.

Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences … our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging. … I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.

My understanding of the Constitution leads me to say that if Judge Sotomayor is confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice we will see a rapid erosion of the cornerstone of our form of government.  If she is allowed to use “richness of her experiences” to help her determine whether or not a situation is or is not Constitutional, I fear for our future.  Justice is supposed to be blind to gender and national origins.  How then will being white or male going to make you any less qualified to determine Constitutionality?

How long will it take for her to suggest quotas in justice?  For intance, her recent case where she denied Mr. Ricci’s valid claim for a promotion because of the Captains/Leutenants exam in the New England Fire Deptarment had 15 passing scores, but none were African-American.  Would it be a huge leap to go from this opinion to one that denied white men access to Congress because there weren’t enough representatives of other races? There are other examples http://www.heritage.org.

Let me state clearly that I am not against African-American’s, though I am a bit bothered by hyphenated-Americans.  We ALL need to be American’s first and foremost.  A divided house will fall.  Let me also state clearly that I don’t think race makes you any more or less qualified for any position.  Education, experience and drive are what matters.

It it offensive to my sensibilities that this woman is being given serious consideration.  I am certain there are many more qualified jurists available and more willing to adhere to the letter of the Constitution and not just make it up as they go along; ones that are not routinely overturned by higher courts.

I urge everyone to speak  up and let their Congressmen know how you feel.  Remember, they work for you.  Unless you hold their feet to the fire and make them accountable to the people they represent, they will do what is best for their careers.
