3,000 innocent people are incinerated to death and/or put through the equivalent of a garbage disposal. Two of the most majestic buildings in the world are reduced to dust. Four passenger jets are hijacked, slammed into buildings, or right into the ground, killing all those aboard; all of this done on live television.
And our U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, is deeply concerned of how the military and agents of the CIA have treated the people who are responsible for it all. Can somebody please tell me what is RIGHT about this? However, I do not want to hear the answer that America is better than this, and that we have to think about our standing and image in the world. Because here is a little fact of life that the liberal left knows about, be refuses to acknowledge.
The "WORLD" has ALWAYS hated us. Not the whole world I should say, but the socialistic and communist governments of the world, who daily pound into the heads of their countrymen their hated of America, it's freedoms and it's capitalistic society. The liberal left knows of this, but refuses to acknowledge because, the liberal left wants America to become these socialistic and communistic governments.
The other fact of life that the liberal left does not want to acknowledge is that the citizens of these governments DO NOT agree with them. That is why everyday they are, and in many cases even risking their lives, to leave these countries and move to the United States.
It's the "turn style test". How many are trying to get in the U.S.A., compared to how many are trying to leave? Even the most radical of liberals are not that stupid enough to give up their American citizenship and move to any of these countries that have the types of government that they are trying to establish here. I challenge any of them to do so. I challenge any of them to go to any of those countries and live as one of them, just for two or three years. If they like it there, then they should stay, however I guarantee you, the restriction of free speech in Canada alone will be too much for them.
Left wing liberals deny history. They do not acknowledge the fact that every president, and that includes their first messiah and monarch, Franklin D. Roosevelt, suspended many American rights and freedoms in a time of war and extreme threats to American citizens and our way of life.
The only rights that I saw President George W. Bush take away from me after 9/11 was my right to choose. My right to choose whether to be burned alive, or to jump from the 100th floor.

Lately, due to the loud public discourse that we are witnessing at these town hall events, and by the "tea parties" both in the recent past and the near futures, I have heard that the American people are basically revolting against "Chicago style" and/or "Cook County style" of politics. As a citizen and as a man who has done business in Chicago and Cook County for almost three decades, I can confirm what the American people are speaking about. I even have heard the new phrase for this type of politics by people who live outside of the state of Illinois. It is being referred to as ... BARACKATEERING.
Recently, we have witnessed a form of Barackateering by Rep. Henry Waxman, (D-CA), of the 30th district of the state of California. Waxman is the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. In July 2009 he launched his own personal investigation of the health insurance companies by sending out letters to 52 of these insurance providers whose annual premiums come to $2 Billion dollars or more. He wants to know in detail all financial information pertaining to revenue, profits, and above all, compensations. This is how "Chicago Style" and "Cook County Style" politics works. This is the first step. A nicely worded letter is the first step to intimidation, followed then by extortion. (Hey Henry! Why not clean up your own houses in DC first before you try to clean up private enterprise?).
But where did Henry Waxman learn how to do this? Let me take you locally here in Chicago. I give to you our own Dorothy Tillman, former alderman of the 3rd Ward of the city of Chicago. The 3rd ward is one of the poorest districts in Chicago. And, I can say with the utmost confidence that the 3rd ward under Dorothy Tillman has not ever advanced economically under her so called leadership. Just like the congressional district of Congressman Maxine Waters.
Tillman in in 2002, authored, and had unanimously passed, a bill in Chicago that requires ALL companies who do business with the city, investigate themselves, then disclose and declare, ANY past ties with slavery, no matter how minute. As a result of this, in 2005 she campaigned against a $500,000,000.00 refinancing deal between the Bank of America and the city. Why? Because Bank of America's ALLEDGED ties to slavery. In 2004, Bank of America purchased Fleet Boston Financial, which at one time was known as Providene, and Providene was supposedly founded by a slave owner ... in 1791.
Tillman disguised herself as an advocate for Americans of African decent. She is an avid supporter of slavery reparations. Meaning she is trying to profit of the toil and torture of her ancestors, if her ancestors were indeed slaves. The death of over 600,000 Americans, who fought and died to end the institution of slavery, and the assasination of a president was not compensation enough for her. Waxman is doing the same, by trying to make himself out to be the champion of the downtrodden and uninsured.
However, the personal monetary profit that both Waxman and Tillman may make for themselves is not the real danger here. It is the precedents that they are creating. Tillman went after businesses dealing with the city, (which the city is suffering for ever since, because some business are saying that they don't have to take this, and they are moving out to the suburbs), Waxman is going after private insurance companies. If they are allowed to do this, then this opens the doors to give other self-centered and self-serving politicians the ammunition to go after any private business and any American citizen that they so choose.
But, it could all backfire in their faces too. Because as we all have seen lately with the heated debates at these town hall meetings, the "silent majority" has decided not to be silent any longer, and are using the tactics that the left has made into an art form against them, and it seems to be working.
Now here is my question to all the citizens of Chicago and Cook County. When are YOU going to start to revolt against the "Chicago Style" and "Cook County Style" of politics?

To celebrate the upcoming nationwide tea parties, I have decided to post a recipe just right for the occasion: THE LONG ISLAND ICE TEA.
You will need the following:
1/2 oz. Smirnoff Vodka
1/2 oz. Beefeater Gin
1/2 oz. Bacardi Rum
1/2 oz. Jose Cuervo Clear Tequila
1/2 oz. Triple Sec
2 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix
This drink is built right in the glass, meaning you just pour the ingredients directly into the glass.
In a TALL COLLINS GLASS, fill with ice and then add all of the liquors.
Top it off with the Sweet & Sour mix.
Then fill the rest of the way with the Coca Cola for color and flavor. Stir with a tall straw and top off with a garnish lemon slice on the rim of the glass.
Now, give a couple of these to a liberal democrats at the upcoming tea parties, and you will be amazed of how even a left winger will drop all their hatred, well, for everything, then loosen up and have a good time.

Question: Why was the original document of the Constitution of the United States written on one page; while the so called health care bill that is the cause of such heated debate written on over a thousand?
Answer: Because honest men need only to show how simple the truth is, while dishonest ones need to manufacture their lies and keep them too complicated to understand.
The Revolutionary War ended in 1783. And it took the original congress from September 1787 to July 1788 just to ratify the Constitution. Honest men toiled to make the truth simple, while dishonest men never end their toil to carry on with their deceits.

It is so good to finally see that the so called "SILENT MAJORITY" has chosen to be silent no more. I have never witnessed an uprising from the conservative mindset as I have these past weeks with the "TEA PARTIES" and the heated arguments at the open town hall meetings that these members of congress and senate have been facing. American citizens actually getting up into the faces of these politicians, pointing their fingers at them and calling them liars. Challenging them on their votes and decisions. Using the lefts own tactics against them. Above all, reminding them of something that somehow in recent history seems to have been purposely erased from our teachings in our public school systems. And that is:
THAT THE CONGRESS, THE SENATE, AND YES, THE PRESIDENT - - - WORK FOR US! WE - - - DO NOT - - - WORK FOR THEM!
However, there are those in political office today who have become not just so out of touch with the American people, the have in fact, become so out of touch with reality as well. If you have ever seen the motion picture, "SCARFACE", starring Al Pacino, you will know of the one line in there where Tony Montana is warned of. "Never get high on your own supply." This is what has happened to many of our career politicians, (which causes debate on why there should be term limits on congressmen and senators). Only their supply is what is called in layman's terms as "BULLS**T". They have become so enamored and yes, addicted to their own bulls**t, that they now are so narcissistic that they will pass any legislation that they damn well please, no matter what the American people want, because they have now a locked mindset. They actually have made themselves the "master race" so to speak. That they and only they know what is good for us. They now believe that this country must be made into an aristocracy, not a republic. (With the recent election of Barack Hussein Obama, they now want to make it into a theocracy, and to all worship "The One").
Let us look at recent events. President Obama has now ordered us to stop referring to our enemies as "terrorists", "jihadists", and "islamists". However, it is perfectly acceptable to label all those who disagree with him and oppose his agenda as, "extremists" and "conspirators". He and his supporters are even charging that all of these heated debates at the town hall meetings are "staged."
I can enter into evidence how these protest are not staged by one simple observation. Look at all the signs and placardsheld by these protesters. They are hand made by each protester. Now look whenever you see a protest by those on the left such as ACORN, the SEIU, or even Jesse Jackson's RAINBOW/PUSH. All their signs and placards are made professionally, as if they have a paid retainer with Kinkos or something. They also have professionally made t-shirts, hats, and buttons.
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has even gone far enough to state publicly that the protesters at the town hall debates are wearing swastikas. She believes that she has the complete authority, to call American citizens who question her and those of her mindset - - - Nazi's, and that it is perfectly acceptable to do so.
Senator Harry Reid has stated that this is not a "grassroots" type of protest, that it is more like "AstroTurf", that meaning fake. I'm sorry, but the only AstroTurf that I see in any of this is sitting on top of Joe Biden's head.
Look at this picture though, look at this picture and think as I do. This is what I want to see. This is the expression that I want to see on Nancy Pelosi's face come November 2010. This dumbfounded, botox enriched, "deer in the headlights" look when there is a complete overhaul of the congress and senate and all the left wing covert socialists are swept out of office and replaced by conservative traditionalists.
When she and Harry Reid, Dick (Turban) Durbin, Joe Biden, Charles Schuemer, and Barack Obama, and the rest of the extreme left are rendered totally powerless.
And yes, maybe even another miracle will come from GOD. God parted the Red Sea, gave us the 1969 Mets, and recently we witnessed his power by putting his hand under a passenger airliner and having it set down onto the Hudson River in New York, and sparring the lives of all those on board. Maybe GOD will perform another modern day miracle, by having the people of the eighth congressional district of California come to their senses, and vote her out of office.
Yes, Ms. Pelosi. Just keep on doing what you are doing. You and all the rest of your mindset. Staged huh? We'll show you staged. We'll show all of you "staged" in November 2010.

I'm almost afraid to write this, because I fear that some left wing progressive, starry eyed supporter of President Obama will read this; and then actually try to have it implemented.
I joke with people here in Chicago that President Obama's real agenda is to annex the entire country into Cook County Illinois. President Obama is trying to run our country in the only way that he has learned, that of the Chicago and Cook County Democratic Machine. Chicago also has one thing that no other city in the United States has, the Illinois Tollway System. Yes, every main expressway leading into and going out of the city of Chicago has a toll booth which charges you a minimum of $1.00 to come in and $1.00 to leave.
Yes, you have to pay a cover charge to get into the city of Chicago, and then you have to tip the doorman on the way out. Many people will be pass through two and maybe even three toll booths to come and go from Chicago. So that means that some commuters will spend $4.00 to $6.00 daily to come and go from work. And then there's the parking rates in the city, which a large portion is a tax for the city. I was downtown yesterday and it cost me $31.00 for a total of 2 hours of time in a parking lot.
There are two expressways that go around the city, I-294 and I-355, but they have toll booths also and many people will pass through two or three of those so that they may go around the city. I call this the Cook County Avoidance Tax.
Now, we see President Obama and the left wing secular progressives pushing their health care agenda and not having any way to pay for it. So, I'm now thinking that President Obama, since he knows of our toll, (tax), system will, in order to pay for a one payer, socialized heath care system, will create: THE UNITED STATES TOLLWAY SYSTEM.
Yes, to pay for health care, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and yes Illinois own Senator Dick (Turban) Durban will be supporting it. There will be toll booths set up all over the country throughout its Interstate System with the Illinois Tollway System as its model. (Why do they call it the Illinois Tollway System, when it's only in Chicago?) You will pay 50 cents to enter onto and exit every Interstate highway throughout the United States, and then pay $1.00 for every 30 miles of the Interstate that you drive on through an array of toll booths. And all money made will be going to pay for universal health care.
And for those who decide to take the side roads. Well to cover those losses they will do as Michael Moore states that the government should do, place a $2.00 tax on every gallon of gasoline. Then, because Chicago does not want you to have your own car, and only wants you to use the METRA, the Chicago Transit Authority, and the taxi's, Obama and his minions will place a tax on every parking spot in the country, as well as the parking spots in your apartment complexes.
And they will also tell you that since you will see how much it will cost you to drive, that you will cut back on your driving, therefore saving energy as well as the environment.
You see, as long as Obama is there, as well as the Chicago connections in his staff, yes, this will be coming. I have driven from Chicago to Phoenix Arizona twice. In that 1700 miles of driving there is only one tollway between Chicago and Phoenix, and that is on the Will Rodger's Turnpike that is the Interstate that connects Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Look at a map and see how far apart that is. Then look at all the Interstates around Chicago, and that also means from Wisconsin and Indiana leading into the city. Look how many toll booths are marked on the map of the city of Chicago.
That's what could be coming.

We have been bombarded by the latest media event and photo opportunity that our President, Barrack Hussein Obama, and his cohorts have bestowed on us known as The White House Beer Summit. Yes, it was a stupid event, that was brought about by the actions of an ignorant, narcissistic Ivy League professor, and was spurred on even more by Barack Obama with accusation that a police department acted "stupidly" when arresting his friend.
The only thing that this summit proved is the amateur status of Barack Obama. He is totally out of his league, and even out of his pay grade when he took on this job. His own narcissism was exposed when he came to the belief that he could just say anything, and we would all just have to accept it.
Here is how I came to the realization that racism is among the lowest of lows in any body's human nature and beliefs. And that means ALL racism, which includes the type that Professor Gates practices, along with that of President Obama's.
My father was one of the most rabid of racists and anti-Semites in the world. He was also one of the worst fathers, and NOT being involved with him in my life, and NOT wanting to be like him did have some influence why I have NO racist beliefs. But that did not confirm my strong anti-racist beliefs.
Being a child of the so called "Peace & Love" generation of the 60's and 70's had some influence also, but that also did not confirm my anti-racism beliefs. I have come to see though, that many of these so-called "Peace & Love" old "hippies" from the "Woodstock Generation" are the most hate filled liberals and people that I have ever seen.
The place that gave me my iron clad confirmation about the evils and the ignorance of any racist beliefs was - - - The United States Navy.
It was my third day at the Naval Training Center - Recruit Training Command in San Diego California. It was late June of 1974. We went into a classroom for the one and only "Race Relations Seminar" It lasted only for two hours. Our instructors were two Chief Petty Officers. Both men were big. One was black and the other was white. They were commonly known on the base as "Salt and Pepper."
My company of fellow recruits, whom I was honored to go through recruit training with, was comprised of all ethnic, racial, national and religious backgrounds. Caucasian, Black, Hispanic, Asian and Filipino. We came from all over the country, and some even from other countries. When we all sat down in the classroom, written on the blackboards were all sorts of racial and ethnic slurs and myths from the most common to the most outrageous. Things like:
All Blacks have rhythm
All Mexicans carry long knives
All whites have destroyed this or that
All Jews have horns
Those were the mild ones. We all discussed these things and after about an hour, then the Chiefs unveiled a sign with the one Naval saying that has stuck with me ever since:
"ONE HAND FOR YOUR SHIP, THE OTHER HAND FOR YOUR SHIPMATE."
The big white Chief then said this with his thick southern accent:
"And I'm going to tell you this! When you're trapped below decks inside a burning compartment, and a hand reaches down to you to pull your sorry ass out of there, you're not going to give a damn what color skin that hand is!"
Then the Black Chief spoke:
"Any of you who have these types of ignorant beliefs had better find a way right now to box them up and throw them over the side and into the drink. Because there is no place for it here. This is the United States Navy. The only colors that should matter to you from this minute forward are the colors flapping on that flag pole outside, and if you should be wearing your dress blues or whites. In the Navy, there are no whites, there are no blacks, there are no Jews, Catholics, Chicanos, Baptists, Asians, Filipinos, Atheists or whatever! The only thing in the Navy - - - are Sailors; and the only difference with those Sailors is determined by their rank. So whatever stupid thought you may have still in your head, GET RID OF THEM --- NOW!"
I saw this with the fellow police officers who serve with Officer Crowley. All Police Officers of all races stood beside him. Because there is something about putting on a uniform and risking your life with whomever shares that uniform with you, that brings out that kind of camaraderie.
This is something that Barack Obama and his left wing ilk have learned the hard way on.
NOTE: I noticed that somebody in Obama's entourage was smart enough to make sure that Joe Biden only got a non-alcoholic beer.
