A New Shot heard round the world?

Ok Ok I know- I haven’t written in forever- it’s been a long long year- more about that in another post. I watched and followed the MA special election- and no matter how “The Party” wants to spin it- this election was a referendum on Obama and his policies. Another good woman loses because “The Party” refuses to listen to the voters.

So here’s a quick little poem to express my feelings on the whole debacle- inspired by Longfellow’s “Paul Revere’s Ride.” I believe the voters of MA have woken up! True to their history of patriotism they have sent a shot we can only hope is heard at least in Washington, if not round the world!

Listen my friends, a story I’ll explain,

How Bay Staters their freedoms fought to regain.

Ted and John brought an unknown to the floor in 04,

They planned even then, to slam freedom’s door.

Bay Staters picked Hillary in 08.

But Teddy and John backed their own candidate.

In lockstep with Dean, Axelrod and Brazile,

The elitists said “NAY” to the citizens will.

“We don’t want a woman! No matter how great!”

“We must find a way to steal delegates.!”

They conspired and strong-armed, using thugs from Chi-Town,

used despicable tactics to tear Hillary down.

Sadly, they won, the voters were fools,

and then they swore in their own personal tool.

The economy in ruin, lobbyists still held sway,

And the tool just kept making the citizens pay.

In August old Teddy was finally gone,

The race for his seat? Conclusion foregone!

Three men and one woman the primary ran,

Bay Staters of course picked the woman again!

Right up to the end, Martha ran in the lead,

But the Dem leadership failed the voters to heed.

The voters were sick of their bribes and their deals,

And sent a message designed to make their heads reel.

They turned down the woman, the message to send,

Deaf, dumb and blind rule will come to an end!

The Party will try to turn it around,

Spin it “All Martha’s Fault, ” run her into the ground.

The voters know better! Hope and Change  was a lie!

Your rotten agenda is destined to die!

I sincerely hope that yesterday’s election signals a sea change in the political climate in this country. We have something precious here in America, something we can lose very easily if “we the people” don’t retake control of our government. Let’s make sure Martha’s loss is not in vain!


Make Way for the King! Stand Aside!

I followed a link at No Quarter to an article by John Heilemann entitled “The Fall and Rise of Hillary Clinton.” http://nymag.com/news/politics/47837/ The article is an interesting take on what Hillary has gained in ‘losing’ the nomination. (Note- she has NOT lost, there is no nominee until the delegates vote in Denver- anything can happen between now and then- like common sense breaking out!)
When I clicked on the link, I certainly did not expect to see on the first page of the article the following quote-

When the chat is over and the nominee strides toward the freight elevator to make his exit, his Secret Service agents brusquely shoo away Clinton’s aides: “Stand aside for Senator Obama! Make way for Senator Obama!”

Whoa! Now what is that all about? I have been to my fair share of political events- rallies, protests, town hall meetings and legislative hearings and never, not once, has a politician been treated like royalty. This is, after all, the United States of America and even politicians are, after all is said and done, just Americans. Sure, the Secret Service has a job to do protecting the selectee, but this is beyond the pale. Make way???? What in God’s name do people think Obama is- the king? Reality check people- Obama is nothing but another politician running for office. Stand aside??? STAND ASIDE?????? Well given that the DNC, the bots and the media have been screaming and screeching for Hillary to step aside for months now I can see where the guards got the idea.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry! This is a farce! Coward Dean hand picks the least electable candidate in American history and the DNC by way of “THE RULES” committee anoints him! If it wasn’t so scary it would be laughable!

Only one problem Mr. Dean (and you too Barky!) See, there are whole lot of us “bitter” type voters who WILL NOT stand aside or make way for an illegitimate candidate. Nope, I will not “stand aside”, nor will I “make way.” I am standing up for my country, for my candidate. I am standing in your way, Sen. Obama and there are millions of us. Annoying, us peasants, aren’t we?? Especially when we believe in Democracy, the kind of Democracy where every vote counts. We are not as “low-information” as you and the press like to paint us.

We have the information, sirs, as does the RNC. We know who you are and what you are trying to do to our party and our country. We WILL NOT stand aside!


Buck Naked Politics: DNC Devises Plan to Stand Firm Against Lobbyists — While Taking their Money

Well here is the truth- the DNC has been outed. It is ALL about $$$$$$! Saying the DNC will follow “Obama Rules” about campaign contributions is a joke. Remember the lesson I gave a few months ago??? Bundled Money IS lobbyist is special interest money. Make no mistake about it- the lobbyists wives will be donating, the lobbyist firms will be donating, the lobbyists employees will be co-erced into donating. It is ALL special interest money- desinged to BUY VOTES!

Read and remember! Obama was selected- not elected!

My Message to Hillary- ON TO DENVER!

I just finished watching Hillary’s speech. So many moving points in the speech, but I did distinctly hear her say she would make her decision going forward based on what is best for “our COUNTRY and our party.” NOT the other way around! She clearly put the needs of the country, and we, the people, before the party. And that is as it should be, America first!
Hillary wants to hear from us, her supporters, as she weighs her options. http://www.hillaryclinton.com/splash/sdmt/ I am 100% for Hillary taking it to Denver as are many who were fortunate enough to be in the audience tonight. Here is my message to Hillary.

Please, Sen. Clinton, for the sake of our country- DON’T QUIT!
Don’t Quit
Author Unknown

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victors cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit!

God bless you!

Now please- everybody go to her website and let her know we want the candidate that won the popular vote, the candidate who won more votes than any other candidate, ever! Anything can happen, more skeletons can and will fall out of that overstuffed closet of Obama’s. The electoral map shows who can win in November, Let our candidate know we want the most qualified, most electable candidate. We want Hillary in the WHite House! Let her know we will support her to Denver and beyond! She is the ONLY candidate who truly is listening to us- let her hear us roar!

Voter Fraud committed by the DNC

The voter fraud committed yesterday by the DNC’s ROOLZ committee is being blogged to the max today. So many good posts, so little time. I caught the following post at Delilah Boyd’s blog- must read this! She relates the committee giving Obama votes NOT CAST for him, votes cast explicitly FOR Sen Clinton, to one of the most shameful incidents in American History- the Dredd Scott decision.

Delilah Boyd

Pagan Power has quite a few great posts on this issue and I hope they will appear here very shortly, but until then, please go to Pagan’s blog and read the article she wrote where she shows that a 1/2 vote is even worse than the 3/5 the slave owners were allowed to count for their representation.


More good reading can be found at “The Confluence” in particular, Riverdaughter’s amazing post-


As I said folks, the outrage is ALL over the net! Here’s a quote from my FAVORITE blogger Uppity Woman-

Barack Obama is the first first candidate to ever, in the history of America, be handed

1) votes that never occurred,

2) votes that were cast for someone else, and

3) delegates won by another candidate.

Barack Obama will forever and deservedly go down in history as the first Affirmative Action Candidate for the President of the United States. Too bad it doesn’t work that way in General Elections. In General Elections, the DNC doesn’t get to count people who didn’t vote and decide who they might have voted for if they had voted. That would be something a Marxist State would do.

In spite of Howard Dean’s fantasy that “This is the beginning of uniting the party,” it’s not gonna happen Howie..

You can read more about the evil bots and how they strong armed and bruised a voter at the “ROOLZ” hearing at Uppity’s blog

You Can Call Me UPPITY.: You Can Rough Us Up But If We Are Still Breathing We Will Vote!#links#links#links

Nope Mr. Dean, not gonna happen- forget Unity, forget us all coming together, no Kumbaya for you or for your minions.
We are Americans and try as you might to shove an unqualified fraud down our throats, the American people are not gonna buy the snake oil you’re selling.

See you in Denver you pigs!

Did Edwards sell out for a data base?

I would never have believed it. I have been hearing for some time that Obama was buying Super Delegates by enticing them with his data base. What danger was in that for me? I never registered at Obama’s site, never donated to him.
This I did not foresee. The VERY SAME DAY Edwards endorsed Obama, I get a begging letter asking me to donate to his scholarship foundation. Now just where would Edwards have gotten my e-mail information???
I have been e-mailing the DNC and Howard Dean every time they send me a begging letter, telling them to count all the votes and quit trying to throw the election before they ask me for money.
So there is the answer- Edwards in all probability got my e-mail from the DNC.
The question now is- did the DNC, Dean and Brazile offer the data base to Edwards in exchange for his endorsement of their golden idol??? I have come to my own conclusion; I leave you to to draw your own.

Here is the e-mail from Edwards and my response- notice the e-mail comes from John Edwards for President. HMMM- I thought he withdrew? And is that legal? Is he using campaign funds to promote this cause, worthy though it might be? Notice also, if you will, the line “But change can only come with your help.” Now where oh where have I heard that word before? I am sure Uppity Woman can help us out with the answers, she is most intelligent!

Dear Sir,
I find it absolutely amazing that I have never received an e-mail from you until today- the day you endorsed a completely unelectable, anti-American, terrorist loving, inexperienced candidate for the most powerful position in the world.
Let me ask you the following sir- Are you not disturbed by Obama’s 8 year working relationship with Ayers? Do you REALLY believe Obama is innocent of Wright’s beliefs? (I do not, I think he knew all along about black liberation theology- he admits to it in his book. Did you read that?) Are you so deluded by the media that you think women will fall in line and vote for this misogynist? I won’t.
I have voted Democratic all my very long life. If Obama is nominated, I will, for the first time ever, vote Republican for President. I survived Reagan and both the Bush terms. I can survive McCain especially since I know John McCain loves our country. (I am sure Obama does not love anything but himself.)
You have greatly disappointed me Mr. Edwards. The timing of this e-mail gives me reason to believe a back room money deal was made giving you access to data bases.
Please remove me from your data base.
Oh, and your candidate has plenty of money and wealthy friends-perhaps Sen. Obama can ask Auchi, Kahlidhi, Ayers or Rezko for donations to your scholarship program. I have to save up to pay the global poverty tax your candidate is trying to pass.

I want to begin by thanking each of you for all of your support and commitment over the last year. It has meant so much to Elizabeth and me. We have been very busy since January working on the causes that got us into the campaign in the first place — helping to build the One America we all believe in.

You may have heard me talk about one of those programs called College for Everyone — a scholarship pilot project that Elizabeth and I started a few years ago in Greene County, North Carolina.

The program is based on a simple promise to students: make good grades, work at least 10 hours a week, and stay out of trouble — and the program will help pay for your first year of college. Since we launched this effort in 2005, the percentage of Greene County high school graduates attending college has increased from 54 percent to 74 percent.

As I write you, 165 high school seniors in Greene County are set to graduate in May and 94% have been accepted into N.C. colleges and universities. Most of these young people are doing just what many of us did — sitting around the kitchen table with their parents, wondering how they will pay for tuition.

Every parent wants to give their child the opportunity that comes with a college education. But for too many American families, the dream of a college degree is just that — a dream. Now, I need your help to make the dream of a college education a reality for some hard-working students in rural Greene County.

That’s why I need your help today — with a tax-deductible donation of $10, $25, $50 or $75, whatever you can afford — to bring us one step closer to our goal of College for Everyone. By contributing now, you will help fulfill the college dreams of deserving students in Greene County and show the world that if we work together on big and important issues, change is possible.

But change can only come with your help. Please contribute now and bring us closer to building One America where every child has the opportunity to go as far as his or her talents and hard work will take them.

Thank you,

John Edwards

P.S. Contributions made by Friday go towards scholarships for the students graduating in May. Please respond today.

Dean is all of a sudden worried? Updated

Boy they ARE getting desperate! Two days in a row! Here is today’s DNC begging letter and my response!

Do you people understand the English language or Democracy at all???

I will give not one red cent to a party that disenfranchises voters in two states. When the DNC counts all the votes, as is, before the nomination, I will donate.

Until then, I will support the best qualified candidate. You know- the one without the ties to domestic terrorists like Ayers? The one with the substantive proposals? The one with the track record? The one with the experience? The one that won last night’s debate?

The one half the people in America are voting for?
Hillary Clinton for President!

Dear Melissa,

Governor Dean wrote to you this week about the $120 million fund to remake John McCain and destroy Senator Clinton and Senator Obama.

As part of their plan, John McCain will start a “Compassion Tour” next week designed to position him as a different kind of Republican.

He’ll be going into inner city neighborhoods and economically depressed towns, trying to reach out to voters his party traditionally ignores.

Sound familiar? Know any other Republican politicians who have claimed to be a “compassionate conservative”?

We’ve seen this campaign before: a Republican candidate who holds a dangerous and wrong opinion on Iraq, supported by piles of lobbyist and special interest money, who works non-stop to look folksy and compassionate; a Republican candidate who knows nothing about jobs and the economy, fixing health care or a rational foreign policy.

We’ve also seen how it turns out. They’re able to use their money to get the White House — and Americans are left with four years of a dangerous Republican president.

We can’t let that happen again. We need you to contribute right now so we can counter John McCain’s “Compassion Tour,” and help fight the $120 million they’re going to throw at us.


John McCain is like George Bush in every way. We can’t let them take the White House again. Make a contribution today:

Subject: $120 million and the FEC

From: Howard Dean
To: Tom McMahon

Below is an e-mail I received from Mr. Dean of DNC fame and my response. Make no mistake about it- Dean and the DNC (Pelosi, Brazile etc) are responsible for the mess we are in and I will not bail them out. I urge every recipient of e-mails such as this to reply in similar language. And for good measure, in addition to this response, I donated to Hillary today!

Dear Sir- You continue to send requests for money yet I have had no response to my request that the Florida and Michigan votes be counted, in full, as is.
As I have stated before, I will not give one red cent to the party until every vote counts! Your sudden concern about John McCain does not frighten me. You and Donna Brazile have created this situation for yourselves by cooking up a pot of rules that disenfranchise voters in your efforts to retain your power.
Count every vote then ask me for money!

Dear Melissa,
A recent report by the Associated Press has revealed that the Republican National Committee is pulling together a joint fund with John McCain called the “Victory Committee.” Its goal is to raise $120 million — which they’re sure to spend trying to destroy our candidates.
We’ve seen this before — we know they’re already launching attacks on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. And while they’re tearing them down, they’ll try to spin John McCain to the American people.
It’s a $120 million makeover fund, designed to make everyone forget about the last eight years of John McCain, George Bush, the war, the economy, Katrina, and a stunning lack of competency.
We can’t let John McCain and the RNC get away with it — Hillary and Barack need us to fight back while they’re trying to win the nomination.
That’s why I’m making an urgent request for you to help us with a contribution today — we have to keep up. They’ve got a head start, but we can stay competitive if you make a contribution right now:
This $120 million fund is about more than just money and negative ads though — it goes to the core of what John McCain pretends to be.
As a “maverick reformer,” he has repeatedly claimed to be a crusader for campaign finance reform, but he has shown little regard for campaign finance law. At the same time, he’s staffed the highest levels of his campaign with Washington lobbyists, with one of them going so far as to work out of McCain’s campaign bus.
I emailed at the end of February about McCain’s decision to break the law and unilaterally withdraw from primary matching funds. We filed a complaint with the FEC that many of you signed your support for, but it has been unable to act.
So yesterday, we sued the FEC to force an investigation into whether McCain has violated campaign finance law. We refuse to let his campaign go unchecked, and we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure he is held accountable.
It takes a lot to raise $120 million, but John McCain’s staff of lobbyists knows they can count on checks from their friends and special interests. They can’t raise the money they need without it.
So this is what we’re up against — a $120 million fundraising push, an opponent who’s already broken campaign finance law, a team of lobbyists who have plenty of friends to help them get the cash they need to trash our candidates, and an FEC that is unable to act on our complaint.
We need to stay competitive, and the only way to do that is for you to make a contribution right now:
Your contribution means we stay competitive. It means we can go out and respond to the Republican attacks while Hillary and Barack work to become our party’s nominee.
And your support means we can show the Republicans that, as in 2005, 2006 and 2007, Democrats plan to compete everywhere — and win.
Thanks for all that you do,
Howard Dean
