HeHeHe, The Plants Are Coming

To take you away, to take you away and all your oxidizing harmful oxygen.

If plants ruled the world, would they regulate oxygen?

Did you know that oxygen is one of the top three most harmful elements in nature? It rusts everything, otherwise known as an oxidizer.

Now This Is Grass Roots

April 30, 2009

No sugar daddy renting vans and signs, no union thugs taking time off to show, just American passion, blue jeans and pure grass root.

GatewayPundit has the formula. He rounded up about 10,000 tea party protesters on April 15 and with a few days notice got a few hundred to meet and greet the president.

Here is his St Loius crowd shot:


Way to go, Gateway, now if we can coordinate everyone of our grassroots for a similar showing where ever our propagandist in chief goes. Show the flag folks, we can do it.

UPDATE: This is too rich, the unions are flying in sob story union wanna bees.

Who You Gonna Vote For

April 30, 2009

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement today:

“Some in the Republican Party are happy about this. I am not.

Let’s be honest-Senator Specter didn’t leave the GOP based on principles of any kind. He left to further his personal political interests because he knew that he was going to lose a Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record.

Steele’s statement was laughable for it’s ignorance. Why didn’t Steele say something along the lines of what HotAir’s ALLAHPUNDIT mused about below:

“It is unfortunate Senator Specter has decided to leave the Republican Party he has called home for decades. It’s also unfortunate that he most likely did so for political purposes. But we will use this as an opportunity to acknowledge today’s GOP has its work cut out for it. We clearly need to work on defining who we are, not just by our words, but by our actions. This is how we will reverse the shrinking of our ranks and invite old and new members to the table so that Republicans’ core goals can help lead America once again.”

These so-called RINO Republicans stand at the center of the problem for the GOP. Sure they might get re-elected, but at what cost. I for one am tired of the choice between the socialist Democrat and who you going to vote for, the Democrat? It serves as a block for our message, which is simply never heard. And we wonder why there is no party allegiance to the GOP — What do they stand for? Is there any such thing as party allegiance in the GOP, stand on principle, not on quicksand.

The cost to the GOP for supporting the RINOs is no party message at all, except we are like them but not so much so. It’s just two heads of the same progressive coin.

We need to get back to offering a clear alternative, after the economy crashes and burns, that time is fast approaching. Stand for freedom and liberty…

The Sideshow Was Pathetic

April 30, 2009

Was this a joke or what?

You have to wonder what is going on in the graves of journalist of times past. Are they proud of their brethren in the present day lap dog media, or do they cringe at the spectacle of the lap dogs that infest our present day White House Press corps? Does anybody know how to ask a real question, except when Bush was in the office? Remember, they did the same thing with Jimmy Carter, and look how that worked out — Heck, Jimmy Carter had higher approval numbers than does Obama at this point.

And what’s with the no economy questions?

Might you think that the hot topic of the night would be why is GM and Chrysler being destroyed by the unions and the government? Where does the U.S. Constitution give authority to take over businesses? Does anybody think they will be able to sell those planned little green cars? If so, I have a left over Soviet Volga you may be interested in.

GDP Decline, Worse Than Expected

April 30, 2009

Can things really be getting better if they’re still getting worse? That’s the question investors and consumers try to answer after yesterday’s Commerce Report economic report on first-quarter GDP. It indicated that the U.S. economy shrank at a 6.1 percent annual rate, nearly as bad as the fourth quarter’s 6.3 percent decline.

It also marked the first string of three straight down quarters since 1974-75. … All Bush’s fault don’t you know. Except for the little known fact that Democrats were in charge of Congress since 2006.

A Rifle Behind Every Blade Of Grass

April 29, 2009

I see this as a good thing.

EveryTown, USA – -( In just 3 months Americans bought enough guns to outfit the entire Chinese and Indian army’s combined.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” – Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto WWII

You also bought 1,529,635,000 rounds of ammunition in just the month of December 2008. Yeah that is right, that is Billion with a “B”. This number takes no accounting of reloading or reloaded ammunition.

Spending Our Way To Prosperity

April 29, 2009

You knew it wasn’t going to work, didn’t you? The economy is going off a cliff. Yahoo Finance reported, via Drudge:

The economy shrank at a worse-than-expected 6.1 percent pace at the start of this year as sharp cutbacks by businesses and the biggest drop in U.S. exports in 40 years overwhelmed a rebound in consumer spending.

The Commerce Department’s report, released Wednesday, dashed hopes that the recession’s grip on the country loosened in the first quarter. Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters expected a 5 percent annualized decline.

Instead, the economy ended up performing nearly as bad as it had in the final three months of last year when it logged the worst slide in a quarter-century, contracting at a 6.3 percent pace. Nervous consumers played a prominent role in that dismal showing as they ratcheted back spending in the face of rising unemployment, falling home values and shrinking nest eggs.

Maybe we can’t spend our way to prosperity after all?

Team Tango …

April 29, 2009

Just a cool dance team … The song is Britney Spears new hit “Womanizer”


April 28, 2009

Like not lying to your constituencies, one of the first and most basic.

In a March 17th interview with The Hill, Specter said he absolutely would not switch parties:

[Democrats] are trying very hard for the 60th vote. Got to give them credit for trying. But the answer is no.

I’m not going to discuss private talks I had with other people who may or may not be considered influential. But since those three people are in the public domain, I think it is appropriative to respond to those questions.

I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role, a more important role, to play there. The United States very desperately needs a two-party system. That’s the basis of politics in America. I’m afraid we are becoming a one-party system, with Republicans becoming just a regional party with so little representation of the northeast or in the middle atlantic. I think as a governmental matter, it is very important to have a check and balance. That’s a very important principle in the operation of our government. In the constitution on Separation of powers.

Good riddance, all you did was vote with the Democrat progressives on every important issue, like the stupid stimulus crap. And claim to be a Reagan Republican, and then switch to the Democrat party, isn’t that some teaching moment.
