STILL Remembering 09-11-01 - It's No National Day of Service to Me!!!

It probably comes as no surprise to you, that once again our President has angered me. It happens daily, but today I'm not just angry for me - I'm angry for 3000+ American Heroes that have been neatly swept under the carpet. Yes, I'm talking about all those who lost their lives on 09-11-01.

Apparently, Mr. Obama has decided that today will be a big "National Day of Service" instead of a memorial to those who lost their lives in the 9-11 attacks. Today Obama and his cronies will be attempting to take 9-11 "back from the right" by making it a day of service. Of course, these groups involved in the National Day of Service happen to be some of the most left-wing unsavory groups out there. Groups involved include ACORN, Color of Change, RainbowPUSH Coalition, Young Democrats of America, and Apollo Alliance. Instead of a day to reflect and remember, this day is being changed into a day of "service," political activism, and media focus on left wing nuts.

No longer do we have 9-11, but a National Day of Service. There is no longer a Global War on Terror with Obama in office, but it is now dubbed the "Overseas Contingency Operations." I've seen slogans all over the web, saying "Never Forget," but all Obama seems to be saying with his changes to this important day is "Please Forget." After all, he's the one that wants to humanize those behind these attacks, make them our friends, give them rights, and ultimately release them.

I am angry for all those who lost their lives, and those who gave their lives on 9-11. To merely be turned into a day of service is despicable. There were heroes that day. Those who helped others escape, the courageous New York City firemen, and men like Todd Beamer on Flight 93, whose response to certain death was a courageous "Let's Roll!"

How can our president overlook the tragedy and the courage that came out of the terrorist (yes I said terrorist) attacks? We can't afford to forget these people who died and we definitely can't afford to forget those who were responsible for those deaths. If we forget, it will most definitely happen again.

I, for one, remember exactly where I stood on 09-11-01 when the first plane hit. I have never forgotten the horror, grief, and anger of that day - and I never will. Today I'm STILL remembering 9-11, and it's no National Day of Service to me. It's a day to remember, to shed a tear, and to renew my resolve to do what I can against terror in the United States by using my vote to get people like Obama and his liberal congressional cronies out of office.

To all those who lost their lives…there are still some of us out here that haven't forgot you. We remember what you did for our country. We remember your death and we remember those you left behind. And…to those who did this…we haven't forgot you either and we're coming! Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday soon. You may have a friend in Obama right now, but that WILL change and as long as there are people like me here, you will never be safe - "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue!"

P.S. Take time to watch the videos...and remember!

Obama - The Big Bully on the Playground

As most of you know, I've sadly neglected this blog for some time, but there have been many who have been wanting me to start posting again, so I've decided to get back into it.

There are a variety of reasons that I had stopped posting for awhile:

1. I was really mad that over 50% of this country was stupid enough to vote in Barack Obama.
2. I ended up in the hospital, which made me stop for some time.
3. I really haven't known where to go with the blogs, because so many things make me upset about this new administration.

However, due to popular demand, we're back here at Politics For Conservative Women, and boy do I have a lot to say.

Let me start out by saying…I'm really, really, really mad. I'm mad at this country, mad at the president, and mad at congress. While I'm very angry at what is happening in this country, I'm even more angry at people who sat idly by and let this happen. Come on, it's taken until the past few months for people to see what Obama's really all about? Seriously…they should have seen that BEFORE they elected him…but I digress from today's topic - Obama - The Big Bully on the Playground.

Since Obama took office, I have found so many things that make me angry that it's hard to touch on just one. I have noticed though, that he seems to act like the big bully on the playground. He storms through like the bully who walks over to the kid in the sandbox working on a castle, kicking over the hard work in a single blow. He's like the bully that goes over and knocks over the stack of building blocks that someone else has been working on for so long.

Unfortunately, Obama is doing this to the building blocks of this country. He's knocking over some of the building blocks that make this country strong. He's going after the building blocks of free speech, the right to bear arms, and the pursuit of happiness. Obama's been trying to bully through things like nationalized healthcare, higher taxes for small businesses, huge amounts of spending on big companies, and cap and trade, to name a few.

Frankly, I'm sick of it. The crazy part is that when people stand up to this bully, they are the ones in the wrong according to the liberal media. People who sound out the news like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck are called right wing extremists, and people are claiming that the protests at town hall meetings are merely staged.

Ridiculous if you ask me. I'm thinking it's time that people stand up to this government. I still believe that we have a voice, but now is not the time to keep it quiet. It's time to get vocal. Who cares if you are dubbed the town extremist. Our country is falling apart like a stack of building blocks, and I for one will not sit by and let this bully ruin everything that our forefathers have worked so hard to build.

What are you doing? Have you contacted your congressmen? Have you signed government petitions? Are you getting the word out there about what's going on in politics? If you're not doing anything, you are just as responsible for the problem.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men [or women] to do nothing." This is so true. Are you doing something to help make a difference, or are you allowing evil to triumph in this country?

America Fights Back…Coming to a Tea Party Near You

Finally! Americans are beginning to fight back. In the spirit of revolutionaries from more than 200 years ago, Americans are going back to the Tea Party. It was back in 1773 when the first Boston Tea Party took place. They tossed British crates of tea into the water, protesting the taxes from the British. Well, once again people are outraged and sending a message to government by way of the Tea Party.

While no one is tossing out crates of tea, Tea Parties are being held all over the country to protest Obama's spending bills. This movement got started right after the multi billion stimulus plan was signed by Obama and is known as the American Tea Party movement.

Once this movement got started, it caught on like wild fire. Already several Tea Parties have been held, and there are quite a few more that are scheduled. Just a few of the places that these Tea Party protests are taking place include Raleigh, Cincinnati, Little Rock, Boston, Orlando, Tampa, Salt Lake City, Boise, Maui, Harrisburg, Cleveland, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Pasadena, Green Bay, Lafayette, Tucson, Monterey, Chicago, and Phoenix.

Of course most of the main stream media is not covering these events. The only two so far to offer coverage are FOX News and CNN. However, this hasn't stopped people from getting the word out there. You can find reports on political blogs, video on YouTube, and pictures all over the web. Protesters have decided they won't do this quietly.

Personally, I'm thinking that it's about time that this is happening. Americans have been silent too long already. I'm excited that people are realizing that they DO have a voice. I've been afraid for some time that the American people might just let socialism creep in before they realized it. I'm happy to find out I was wrong. There are people willing to do something and I'm one of them.

I'll be attending the Tea Party in my area in a few weeks. I'm going to be taking advantage of my right to protest. While I know there are those out there that will probably say we "shouldn't protest the government" I disagree. We have to protest. If we are silent, we are just as guilty. We must not be silent. I challenge my readers - find a Tea Party near you. Go!!! Make your voice heard. There's a Tea Party coming to a city near you…where will you be???

Here are a few pictures of Tea Parties that have already taken place. I hope they will inspire you!

Obama…So Many Mistakes…So Little Time

It's March. Only March. In so little time, no other President of this country has managed to make so many mistakes. Obama has definitely proved that many were right with their fears of him going through "on the job training." So far, in my book, he's getting a big fat "F" in his training.

After all, we all make mistakes, but really…how many mistakes do you have to make there Mr. President? It's getting ridiculous. He almost makes the amateurish Clinton mistakes look petty. Americans should be more worried than ever about this President ever handling a real crisis, such as 9/11. Here's a few of the recent mistakes Obama has been making.

Mistake #1 - Picking "Schoolyard" Fights with Pundits
Since when did Presidents focus their attention on fights with pundits? It's like a silly fight in the schoolyard. Apparently the Obama Administration thinks it needs to go out there and spend valuable time criticizing the Sean Hannity's and the Rush Limbaugh's out there. The very thought that anyone would criticize the president. The audacity. Watch out folks…freedom of speech is about to go out the window. Since when did Obama have the time to even care what people were saying? I thought he had his hands full with the economy?

Mistake #2 - Not Understanding What "Vetting" Is
Apparently "vetting" is a term that President Obama just doesn't understand. It's about time that he learn the meaning. After all, the guy still doesn't have all the positions filled. People keep "reconsidering" or quitting because they have legal problems coming to light. Half the people he picks end up in tax investigations. I guess he's giving us a clue about the people he enjoys keeping company with. No wonder we have a bad economy!

Mistake #3 - Blowing Off Eastern European Countries - Czech Republic and Poland
While Bush 43 spent so much time working on better ties with countries in Easter Europe, especially the Czech Republic and Poland, Obama has been trying to "secretly" blow off these countries. He sent a letter off to Dmitri Medvedev saying that they'd leave these two countries without missile defense if only Russia would help to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Of course Russian didn't go with the deal, and the letter became public knowledge. Now these two countries know that Obama was willing to sell them off to the Russians who already are intimidating these countries. Absurd!

Mistake #4 - Continuing to Ruin Ties with Britain
Of course then there is the way that President Obama continues to ruin the ties we have with Britain. Britain is one of our greatest allies…or that is they WERE. As I've mentioned before in a post, Obama made a huge deal about sending back their Churchill Bust that was a gesture of goodwill. Then he treats the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, very badly while he was visiting. The press conference they were supposed to have together was totally blown off by Obama, and then he gives the PM a set of DVDs of classic American movies after being given a gift that was priceless - a pen holder that was made from the timbers from the HMS President, which was a British warship from the 19th century. It's not hard to see why Britain was offended. It appears that Obama doesn't want much to do with Britain…he's too busy courting and wooing those Middle Eastern countries and all his Muslim relatives.

Mistake #5 - Bad Mouthing the Economy and Creating More of a Crisis
Last of all, President Obama continues to bad mouth the economy at every turn. Instead of giving Americans hope, all he does is talk the country and economy down. He's always talking about a crisis, and meanwhile he's making a bigger crisis. It seems that the more he talks ( not to mention when the tax cheat Geithner talks) the stock market continues to go down. We have seen the lowest numbers since 1997 (Clinton was in Office) in the past few days, and Obama has definitely been one to help it get there. Even Democrats with financial knowledge recognize that Obama is making a bad problem worse.

Of course I don't have time to tell you about all Obama's mistakes...I don't think Blogger will let me post that much at once. These are just a few of the big ones. What do you think? Do you want a president that makes mistakes at every turn? I Don't!!!

Rush Limbaugh Attacked by Steele - RNC Leader Makes Big Mistake

Michael Steele, the new head of the RNC, has spend the last few weeks talking about how he wants to take the Republican party forward and make changes to bring the party together. Then came Rush's excellent speech at CPAC, the one that put other Republicans to shame…suddenly Steele shows a different side of his personality.

Rahm Emmanuel, D.L. Hughley, and even Obama himself began to talk about Rush as the head of the Republican party and as their enemy. Well, Steel goes on the defensive and opens his mouth saying this "Let's put it into context here. Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer. Rush Limbaugh, the whole thing is entertainment. Yes, it's incendiary, yes, it's ugly --" This is what Steele had to say about Rush after his amazing speech at CPAC.

Frankly I was stunned to hear this. I expected more from Steele. He's simply done what the Democrats wanted him to do…he drove a big rift in the party. His comments also make conservatives wonder if Steele is really such a conservative himself. After all, the man won't even criticize President Obama. Whose side is Steele really on?

Sure, Steele later came out and made an apology to Rush, but the damage has been done. He's spoken out against one of the most well known conservative voices out there. Rush is so much more than the "entertainer" that Steele made him out to be. Rush is a passionate conservative who actually speaks out about what he believes in. He is well spoken, and can make a wonderful speech without the teleprompter that our current president clings too.

Steel would do well to remember that Rush has 22+ million listeners every single day. There are a lot of people who feel the same way Rush does. There are still conservatives out there.

If Steele's comments recently are showing what he will be like as a leader of the RNC, then I may have to rethink my membership of the Republican party. As I've mentioned before, perhaps it's time that a new party emerges. It's time that conservatives take things back here. The Republican party has been bastardized by ridiculous moderates who want to be liberals in Republican clothing. Now they even vote with our ridiculous liberal President that wants to incorporate socialism.

I recently read what Rush had to say on Steele's comments. He definitely made some great comments and great points. Read it yourself HERE. He closed with the thought that a sleeping "conservative giant" has been awakened. I only pray that he is right. Unless conservatives wake up and band together, I cringe to think about the fate of this country.

In conclusion, there is one lesson that we should learn here - the power of your voice. One speech by one man has started such a controversy. Perhaps it is what will be needed to get conservatives in action. Perhaps it will be a reminder that each voice can make a difference in America. However, to make a difference, you actually have to use your voice, not sit back and be silent while the country falls to pieces. Edmund Burke said it so well, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Obama Promises Bipartisanship

Obama has promised throughout his campaign and even through his short presidency that he would "reach across the isle" to the Republicans. Well, this turned out to be one of his promises turned lies…one of the many!

He continues to pretend that he is reaching out. He even went around hugging the Republicans at his first address to Congress. If I were a Republican in Congress, I would have thrown up at the pathetic and sugary way he tried to play the bipartisan president. Sorry Mr. President - bipartisanship takes more than just hugging people of the opposite party.

Basically what President Obama means by "bipartisanship" is that you agree with me and we'll all be friends. Otherwise he'll try to convince the media that you just won't work with anyone. It appears that when he wants to be bipartisan, he doesn't want to reach across the isle, he wants everyone to come on over to his side of the isle.

If the Republicans are smart, they'll stay as far away as possible from his ideas and bills. Otherwise they are as guilty as he is!
