Thoughts on Primaries

The daughter asked yesterday about the crop of candidates currently spending their way through the primaries. She, like us, will not be voting for the fraud. Nobama in 08, nobama ever. That said, we got into a discussion of how the far fringe elements have taken over both parties. And what it comes down to, imo, is lack of participation in the primaries. 2008 was different in that we of the D persuasion had a qualified, experienced candidate- AND a Chicago con man backed by the powers that be- iow- the money men.The Chicago Way brought us rampant caucus and voter fraud and the outright theft of delegates to push the inexperienced, unqualified, but money men backed fraud over the line.

In most primaries, turn out is dismal. Here is an old 2010 article with some good graphs. I would dare to say that not much has changed. Regular run of the mill average Americans disregard the primaries, choosing to just go ahead and pull the lever in November for whichever candidate has a D or R next to their name.

Shame, shame, shame. Bypassing participation in the primaries has brought us a slew of candidates from the fringes of BOTH parties. It is my belief that most of America is in the center- some slightly left, some slightly right, but averaging out to the center. The fringes control who ends up on the November ballot- because THEY vote in primaries. They pick the most rabid candidates and that is what WE end up with as “choices” in November. The money men behind the scenes know the key issues and words to rally the rabid.

If we want to have an actual choice of an actual center candidate, then we damn well better get out there and vote. And talk talk talk to to others about the importance of the primaries.

And THAT is my new strategy. Get as many involved in the primaries as possible. The lunatic left and the rigid right get the vote out-

the center needs to do the same.

And take back our parties from the freaky fringes.

Fort Hood Hearings and more on Military Voting

Check this out-

FORT HOOD — A soldier testifying in an evidentiary hearing here Friday for Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan said he erased a cell phone video shot during the melee on the orders of his commanders.

Are you having the same WTF moment I had? Good! How can this be? Has this whole country including the military gone totally batshit politically correct crazy? Evidence was erased??????????  Here is another snippet from the same article.

Under cross-examination by John Galligan, the lead defense attorney, Aviles was asked if he had made a video of the shooting from his cell phone. He also was asked if he had deleted the images at the instruction of an officer and an NCO.

“Yes sir,” Aviles replied.

Col. Diane Battaglia, executive officer to Maj. Gen. William Grimsley, Fort Hood’s top commander, said the general hadn’t seen reports filed by military police in the case and was unaware of Aviles erasing video of the shooting from his phone.

I want to know who the hell ordered that video erased AND I want to know what it showed. The troops giving testimony at this hearing ALL agree it was Hasan. Many have testified that he screamed the standard Islamofascist terrorist cheer before opening fire.

WHY was that video erased? What was in that video? And for that matter – why the hell is Hasan still on this planet? Evidentiary hearing? The slaughter occurred when? Let’s get the court-martial over with and line that bastard up in front of the wall and be done with it already.

Next item on my WTF list for this weekend- the disenfranchisement of our troops overseas. If you missed my original rant on this travesty you can check it out here.  Now there is more news on that front.

A little background is necessary I think. Obama was a junior Senator from Illinois. A whack job governor went to trial for trying to sell Obama’s vacated seat. Said seat is now up for grabs- and the Democrats are in trouble all over the place. How embarrassing would it be if the Dims lost that seat? Everybody still with me?  Imagine how NOT stunned I was to see this in the news.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP/KMOV) — At least one county in Illinois admits its ballots to military personnel weren’t mailed on time.

That’s as the U.S. Department of Justice is checking on the issue in Illinois and has brought lawsuits in other states.

St. Clair County Clerk Bob Delaney says about 1,100 absentee ballots to military personnel didn’t get mailed by the Sept. 18 deadline. Most of those voters are connected to Scott Air Force Base.

I am beyond disgusted. And by the way- military personnel tend to vote Republican. The troops putting their lives on the line to protect us all don’t get a vote.  But Meanchelda gets a pass when she “electioneers” inside a polling place.
Will the political parties never cease to find ways to disenfranchise voters? Hanging chads,the Supreme Court deciding a Presidential election,  Black Panthers intimidating voters, ACORN registering Mickey Mouse, giving one candidate’s delegates to a fraud and the list just keeps on growing with every election.

Let The Games Begin

The local Democratic Party guy stopped by yesterday. He wanted to know if I wanted a Dahlkemper sticker and yard sign.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! NOT!

He remembered me as a Hillary supporter and that I was adamantly opposed to the fraud.

Here’s the best part-

He wants me to get involved in the local Dem party because- wait for it-

I am so well informed and my research is outstanding! BWAHAHAHAHA!

Give me a break- I told him what Obama was and they wouldn’t listen. NOW my research is valuable? Not my vote mind you- my research.

Apparently I am making some kind of progress as the idiot agreed with me that Dahlkemper’s vote on the healthcare bill was a slap in the face to her constituents. And he agreed we need term limits. And he thinks Ofraudma coming out FOR the victory mosque is wrong. Oh and I was right- Hillary was the better candidate, the Roolz committee stole delegates and our State got robbed in Denver. Too bad they didn’t listen in 08. But our county went Hillary by huge numbers and then McCain in huge numbers.

I left him with some homework to do on the insurance company bailout bonanza bill.

And NO you can’t put traitor bitch Dahlkemper’s sign in my yard. And NO I am never working for the “New” Democratic party. I will work like crazy to get the OLD Democratic party back. Until then- NO!

Erie Pa has ties to G#^ D*&& America Pastor Wright

I thought the people of NW PA knew better! Erie, PA should be ASHAMED to have any ties to that America hating loon! For shame Erie! If you don’t put a stop to this now- you will be seeing thugs at the polling places in the next Presidential election- just like they had in Philadelphia in 2008.

Wake up to what is going on in your community! The good citizens of Erie PA should not have to have the good name of their city besmirched by ties to Rev. Wright.

Rev. Wright: ‘Obama Threw Me Under the Bus’ – Politics | Republican Party | Democratic Party | Political Spectrum – FOXNews.com.

The letter was sent Feb. 18 to Joseph Prischak, the president of Africa 6000 International in Erie, Pa. Wright subsequently agreed to write a letter to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on the group’s behalf to try to get access to millions of dollars.

For shame, for shame-

PA dems against the people- surprised? Updated

Pa Attorney General Corbett signed on to the multi-state lawsuit against Obomneycare and now state Dems are threatening the funding for the AG office. It would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.

Pennsylvania Democratic

lawmakers threaten to cut

funding to attorney

general’s office if Tom Corbett pursues lawsuit against federal health care bill

PLEASE! Give me a break! I have become perhaps overly cynical since the DNC appointed their puppet- (though they learned about appointing instead of electing from the Repubs) but do any of these lawmakers really care about the people?? Does Corbett really believe this?

Corbett said the health care law imposes an unconstitutional mandate requiring citizens to purchase health insurance.

“Congress does not have the constitutional authority to enact this requirement,” Corbett said. “This law threatens every citizen’s individual liberties.”

The Dems claim Pa could lose millions now and billions later “If the lawsuit you are contemplating is successful…” (Do I detect a faint fear that the lawsuit may actually succeed? GOOD!)

Or is all of this merely political games? Corbett IS running for governor here in PA. Will he cave and claim the Dems made him do it? And try to claim he was a hero stopped by the forces of evil? And the Dems can claim they stopped the forces of evil??

Told you- I have gotten cynical.

So will it surprise you that I have written and called Corbett’s office to let him know I want him to continue on and not let the Dems make him back down? See if he will actually stand! Hold him to it! I also e-mailed my local rep and let her know I want her to stand up and support Corbett on this issue.

I heard somewhere that another state’s Dims are pulling the same trick- so I guess I know what Axelrove is doing now. If anybody knows which states- let’s get those communities “organized” as well.

Dahlkemper! TOO LATE!

I got the communication below  this morning from the traitorous bitch that purports to represent us here in NW PA. (Though it is evident that she has been bought and sold by the DNC ) Sorry Kathy- I am just not feeling any of your pain- Stupid stupid stupid! I called you, I wrote you,  I e-mailed you. I and thousands of others told you that we would vote you out if you sold us out. Unless Pelosi kept you locked in a closet you KNOW the majority of Americans are opposed to this bill. Didn’t believe us? Think your sugar daddy can save you?  Not once did you or your office respond to any of my communications. Running scared are you? You should be because no matter what you think of Sarah Palin – she stands up for what she believes in (unlike YOU Mrs. Dahlkemper) and Sarah will fight to the end.

By the way – has the fraud signed that ridiculous executive order yet?? HMMM? Are you still waiting???

You are a Judas Kathy Dahlkemper- you sold out the people who voted you in-I will enjoy every minute I spend working to see you defeated.

Dear (took my name out here),

We knew they would be coming after me, but no one thought that it in just two days after the historic vote for health care reform, Sarah Palin and outside interests would announce that they are targeting me and working to defeat me in November.  Look at the article below from today’s Politico.

Palin unveils midterm target list
By: Andy Barr
March 23, 2010 02:06 PM EDT
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin rolled out a list of Democratic members of Congress she intends to target for defeat this year, announcing that she’ll go after lawmakers who voted for health care reform and hail from districts she and Arizona Sen. John McCain won in the 2008 presidential election. Forty-eight Democrats represent districts that voted for McCain.

“With the president signing this unwanted and ‘transformative’ government takeover of our health care system today with promises impossible to keep, let’s not get discouraged,” Palin wrote in a post on her Facebook wall, urging supporters not to “get demoralized.”

“We’re going to hold them accountable for this disastrous Obamacare vote,” she continued.

The Democratic members she listed were: Ann Kirkpatrick (Ariz.), Harry Mitchell (Ariz.), Gabrielle Giffords (Ariz.), John Salazar (Colo.), Betsy Markey (Colo.). Allen Boyd (Fla.), Suzanne M. Kosmas (Fla.), Baron P. Hill (Ind.), Earl Pomeroy (N.D.), Charlie Wilson (Ohio), John Boccieri (Ohio), Kathy Dahlkemper (Pa.), Christopher Carney (Pa.), John M. Spratt, Jr. (S.C.), Tom Perriello (Va.), Alan B. Mollohan (W.Va.), and Nick J. Rahall II (W.Va.).

“We’ll aim for these races and many others,” she wrote. “This is just the first salvo in a fight to elect people across the nation who will bring common sense to Washington.”

I need your help to continue to stand up and do the right thing.  I need you to continue to volunteer your efforts, to go door to door, make phone calls, speak out, and I will need you and your friends to vote.   (I took out the last line where there are links to contribute- if you want to support a traitor to the people it won’t be from my blog)

Thank you,

Officially it is STILL Washington’s Birthday- Updated at the bottom

Because it is my blog and this whole small p president’s day thing pisses me off- I am going to repost this entry.

NO, Nixon, Carter and Obama DO NOT deserve the same praise and recognition as President Washington or President Lincoln. (Us old timers remember when these were two separate holidays- Washington’s Birthday and Lincoln’s Birthday!)

This is more new age BS- give everybody a trophy or ribbon for participation.

Kind of like how they give the Nobel Peace Prize now?

 

Never fails that when I start looking things up I learn something.

President’s Day or Washington’s Birthday

“Well, according to the federal government, the holiday observed on the third Monday in February is officially Washington’s Birthday. But many Americans believe that this holiday is now called “Presidents’ Day,” in honor of both Presidents Washington and Lincoln, whose birthdays are Feb. 22 and Feb. 12, respectively. It turns out that whether you honor one or the other or both of these presidents may depend on where you live.”

The Monday Holidays Act of 1968 moved Washington’s Birthday to the third Monday in February. Attempts to change the name of the holiday to “President’s Day” have never been successful.  The same article linked above reminded me that States set the holidays and are not obligated to accept Federal holidays.

No matter what the law calls it most people now use  “president’s Day” (and yes I used a small ‘p’ on purpose.) We have gone from honoring the First President to a holiday that is essentially a commercial event. Wouldn’t want the American people to get the insane idea that we have actually had some heroes in our history now would we?  Though Federal law still recognizes Washington’s birthday I don’t hear any uproar when we reduce the day to small p president’s day- as if all the Presidents were somehow equal in their contributions and character. Everybody is a winner! Being second – or God forbid being a failure- is bad! “All animals are equal.”

What is the message American’s get for this day?? BUY BUY BUY!!! Are they even teaching Washington in school anymore???

What would Washington himself say?? Here is what he DID say!

Let your Discourse with Men of Business be Short and Comprehensive.

Some advice our current crop of politicians- especially the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave should heed-

Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.

And two I think the citizens of this country should apply BEFORE they vote!

Experience teaches us that it is much easier to prevent an enemy from posting themselves than it is to dislodge them after they have got possession.

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.

Happy Birthday- a few days early- Mr. President!

And Happy Birthday to Susan B Anthony- whose actual birthday is today! (Feb 15, 1820) Susan was one of the mothers of the women’s rights movement.

Read about Ms. Anthony here

Susan’s first involvement in the world of reform was in the temperance movement. This was one of the first expressions of original feminism in the United States and it dealt with the abuses of women and children who suffered from alcoholic husbands. In 1849, Susan gave her first public speech for the Daughters of Temperance and then helped found the Woman’s State Temperance Society of New York, one of the first organizations of its time. In 1851 she went to Syracuse to attend a series of antislavery meetings. During this time Susan met Elizabeth Cady Stanton, became fast friends and joined Stanton and Amelia Bloomer in campaigns for women’s rights. In 1854, she devoted herself to the antislavery movement serving from 1856 to the outbreak of the civil war,1861. Here, she served as an agent for the American Anti-slavery Society. After, she collaborated with Stanton and published the New York liberal weekly, “The Revolution” (1868-70) which called for equal pay for women.
In 1872, Susan demanded that women be given the same civil and political rights that had been extended to black males under the 14th and 15th amendments. Thus, she led a group of women to the polls in Rochester to test the right of women to vote. She was arrested two weeks later and while awaiting trial, engaged in highly publicized lecture tours and in March 1873, she tried to vote again in city elections. After being tried and convicted of violating the voting laws, Susan succeeded in her refusal to pay the fine. From then on she campaigned endlessly for a federal woman suffrage amendment through the National Woman Suffrage Association (1869-90) and the National American Woman Suffrage Association (1890-1906) and by lecturing throughout the country.
Anthony, along with Stanton and Matilda Joslyn Gage published the History of Woman Suffrage 4 vol (1881-1902) In 1888 she organized the International Council of Women and in 1904 the International Woman Suffrage Alliance. Although Anthony did not live to see the consummation of her efforts to win the right to vote for women, the establishment of the 19th amendment is deeply owed to her efforts.

.

But the whole fact that we have no holiday’s recognizing any of the great women of our country is the subject of a whole ‘nother post!
