I read somewhere on Face Book that the GEICO Insurance Company left the Glenn Beck Program as a advertiser. This struck me as funny, seeing that the Glenn Beck Program has the highest ratings in it's time slot. Normally, advertisers want to reach as many people as possible, so under normal circumstances they would clamour to get picked as an advertiser. So why this sudden change of heart? Could it be that the Obama administration has "gotten to" GEICO just like they got to the Bankers, the car company execs, AIG and other insurance companies? I decided to ask then directly. Here's there response. "Thank you for contacting GEICO. If you are a policyholder we thank you for being with GEICO and we want to tell you more about this matter. If you are not, we also want you to learn more. This week we took action to move our marketing messages from the Glenn Beck show and you are wondering why. Well, you deserve an answer. If the inflammatory nature of the comments on a program overshadows our message and causes GEICO to be drawn into a national debate, we are likely to reconsider where we place our marketing messages, which is what we did. GEICO delivers very important messages through its major marketing campaigns: we’re saving customers’ dollars … we’re easy to do business with … we’re looking out for our policyholders. That’s what we hope the public hears and sees and focuses on. As a company, we do not take positions on controversial issues. As an advertiser, while a national debate on issues can be healthy and appropriate, we don’t see ourselves in the role of taking part in those debates. Our business is auto insurance. We want to bring people value and we attempt to reach large audiences with that message. It is of little benefit to us if a controversy on the program gets so much attention that our message is drowned out." Sincerely, GEICO Corporate Communications1-877-206-0215 GEICO: Internet Service Representative Well, here's a few questions for GEICO. Isn't the other side of the argument controversial as well? So who, GEICO, are you moving your advertising dollars to now? Isn't moving your business from one TV program to another because of political issues controversial in itself? And doesn't it therefore counter your reasoning as outlined above? I would implore anyone reading this, who also uses GEICO as an insurance provider, reconsider their choice. Please boycott GEICO Insurance! Thanks America!

Many years ago laws were passed to prohibit prayer in school. Today, a northern Florida school principal and an athletic director are facing criminal charges and up to six months in jail over their offer of a mealtime blessing. Recently there has been talk about removing the word "God" from our currency. "Under God" has been removed from many iterations of The Pledge of Allegiance. All this because the ACLU, you know that organization looking out for your best interests (ROFL), and the radical left progressive agenda has worked tirelessly to convince you that those things conflict with the establishment of the "church and state tenant", despite the fact that the 1st Amendment specifically states " Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech...". So how is it possible that President Obama himself is initiating a meeting with certain religious leaders to coerce them to get actively involved in 'persuading' their membership to support health care reform. Why doesn't that violate the same "church and state tenant" that the ACLU has railed against for years? Where is the voice of the ACLU today? Where's their outrage? Non-existent, because we have two America's here, the fact to which people are finally waking up. We have the Progressives - who are loud, and insulting, and demeaning, and arrogant, and self-serving, and use bully tactics at every opportunity, and then we have the rest of America - all those center-right people, good hard-working, non-victim status people who for years have silently tried to get along with the progressives. Unfortunately, despite all their rhetoric, the only thing I see from the radical left progressives, led by the ACLU in this case, is the hypocrisy! It's not acceptable to me any longer. And I see more and more that it's not acceptable to the American people who want their country back. It's time to change the direction of America! Stay Awake America!!!
America is at a crossroads, facing a choice between a government enriching itself and one that seeks to empower the people. I’m running for U.S. Senate to uphold the great tradition of passing down to the next generation a stronger and more prosperous America than the one I grew up in. - Marco Rubio, Candidate for U.S. Senate from Florida. Marco is a young, energetic breath of fresh air for us in Florida. He will stand us in good stead. He is for the values and principles espoused in earlier generations of Americans. And he supports the Constitution and the liberties it stands for! For those of you who do not want politics as usual, and who see Charlie Crist for who and what he really is, get the word out on Rubio. You won't be disappointed. Here's a clip from Mike Huckaby with his endorsement for Marco Rubio: http://www.huckpac.com/?Fuseaction=Blogs.View&Blog_id=2657 Wake Up Florida! Vote for Marco Rubio!

About 3-4 weeks ago we were in jeopardy of having a Health Care Reform bill shoved down our throats. You may recall that Nancy Pelosi bragged about the fact that she had all the votes she needed in the House to pass it there. Then a funny thing happened. People started contacting their Congressmen and Congresswomen, and people started attending Town Hall Meetings and speaking out! That slowed the process significantly to allow the measure to languish until the August break. More Town Halls have demonstrated just how opposed Americans are to the proposed legislation. Now you'll notice more and more Democrats distancing themselves from the bill. They sound like they were against it from the beginning. What they don't realize is that we know exactly who was for or against it. Do they think we have no memory, as well as that we're stupid? ROFL!! Wake Up Congress!!!!
Recession - Your neighbor loses his job. Depression - You lose your job. Recovery - Obama loses his job! That was found on a sign outside "Casa D'ice Restaurant" in PA. Check out casadice.com for more of these! This guy's business is doing very, very well. You may have seen him on the news in the past. Wake Up America!

As you listen to this, try to remember that Reagan is speaking back in 1961!!!! And he was a Democrat! Progressives, under the guise of Liberalism, have been trying to socialize our health care since 1927, let's not allow it on our watch. Back in 1961 he talked about the encroachment on our liberty that had already occurred. Most of us can't even imagine what liberty looked like back in 1961, nevermind what it looked like 100 years ago. I'm sure it was much different than what passes for "liberty" today. http://action.afa.net/videos/reagan/ Wake Up America!

I apologize in advance for the length of this article. And I'm going to give you a source now, in case you decide not to read the entire article. Pick up the book State of Fear by Micheal Crichton - it will tell you all you need to know about the fictitious "global warming" scam, and why certain individuals would engage in a campaign to scam us. The book is a work of fiction, but it's based upon three years of investigation and has references to back up the claims asserted throughout the book. Even if you just want some enjoyment, it's a good read. You've probably guessed, 'global warming' is all about money. So then you have to ask yourself, what will the money be used for? My theory is that it will be used much like George Soros uses his money - it will be funneled to certain individuals (Al Gore come to mind) who will use it to fund the progressive movement, to further a progressive agenda, to ensure progressive and radical left politicians get elected in office, and ultimately will be used to the detriment and for the demise of America as we know it. It's already happening with Soros, can you imagine two or three more of him pushing a leftist agenda? Sound like a conspiracy theory? But just think, even the 'boy who cried wolf' was right at least once. What if what I believe is true? What happens to the country if we allow these bills to pass? There are obviously a lot of people who think along these same lines. If your gut has you asking yourself questions, listen to it - intuition is a keen sense. A friend of mine wrote this email to me. The present leadership in Washington is taking a page right out of 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu, by attacking your enemy on many fronts at the same time. Your opponent becomes confused and unable to defend on more than one front. Thus ensuring defeat. Look at how many things (bills) they have been rushing (pushing) through Congress since January of this year (no other Administration has ever attempted this - ever). The Stimulus Bill (hows that working), Public Health Care Bill, Cap and Trade Bill (energy tax), Illegal Immigration (instant citizenship - for millions), FCC-Fairnes Doctrine Bill (attack on the 1st Amendment), Gitmo Detainees (poor terrorists), Outlawing the ownership of firearms (attack on the 2nd Amendment), Abortion (on demand), Removal of anything referring to God from our currency, all Government Buildings and prayer (attack on Religious Freedom), Death Tax, Estate Tax, Reducing (or completely removing) Charitable Contributions to churches or other religious charities (thus ensuring the demise of many who rely on these contributions), Repeal of the Mexico City Doctrine (bill) - this gave them the green light to start paying (with your money) for Abortions in other countries, Repeal of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act--they believe marriage is between anyone but a Man and Woman), The Hate Crimes Bill (way to much negative S* # T to even try listing them--you should really read about this one) - Thanks Ted K., The Union Card Check Bill (eliminating the secret ballot in the work place for Unionization - can you say payback). These are not even all of them (just the ones that come to mind--scary isn't it) that THEY are trying to push (rush) through Congress. Al Gore has made over $100 million since 2000 (yes that figure is correct--and living large) selling BS to the American Public (especially young people, who they feel can be more easily influenced). The rest of the world think we are insane to try and pass this Cap and Trade. The Government believe that a majority of the people at some point will become overwhelmed, and give up (you lose-I win). What is truly frightening, is that we are on a path to a Totalitarian Government (I believe that Socialism is just the first step). We are A 'Free Nation', but once we become willing to give up those Freedoms, I am afraid there may be no turning back. Mike PS Sorry for the long diatribe. I hope this info (if you feel like going further) will help you understand what this bill really is about, and what it will cost you and me. This from AmeriPAC: Stop Obama's Energy Tax For Heath Care 80% of the ENERGY TAX INCREASE is slated for the General Federal Budget. Just 20% of the Increased Energy Tax Revenue is directed at Obama's green economy and jobs. The Obama Health Care Tax scam will cost billions and a new revenue source is needed according to Obama Treasury Sec. Geithner who didn't rule out new taxes as a means to do so. Timothy Geithner said when asked if new taxes were likely "what the country needs to do is understand we're going to have to do what it takes, we're going to do what's necessary." The Obama administration tax increase plan strategy includes an Energy Report it issued that contains no new research intentionally scaring the public with the grimmest, most urgent language on climate change ever to come out of any White House. False computer simulations about rising sea levels, sweltering temperatures, deeper droughts, and heavier downpours — blaming carbon for global warming's alleged serious effects and lying to the country to collect the Obama "Energy Tax". The House rushed a bill through before going on vacation and the Senate expects to do the same. But was the report complete? Did it have all the relevant data? NO!!! Get Ready Now with the Senate Million Fax Campaign - The Obama-Pelosi-Reid Bill Strategy (Obama PR-BS) is dumping unfinished bills without notice or time to read the details on the House and Senate floor for votes. We must STOP Obama PR-BS and get ready for the Senate Fight. To do this we want to have 1 Million Faxes ready to go and everyone ready to call their Senators. OBAMA'S reckless promise to get elected now appears to be just another Obama lie when he said "I pledge. No family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase." Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, NOT ANY OF YOUR TAXES. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla has ordered an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency's alleged suppression of a 98-page report, co-authored by EPA analyst Alan Carlin that questioned the science behind global warming. The report details how regulating gases like carbon dioxide WILL NOT reduce global warming. Carlin's report states that the information the EPA is using is out of date, and that even as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have increased, global temperatures have declined. Inhofe said "He (Carlin) came out with the truth. They don't want the truth at the EPA," he's ordered an investigation. "We're going to expose it." Carbon Dioxide DOES NOT Cause Global Warming The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) DataThe Truth For seven and a half years, is that global temperatures have been falling rapidly. The UN IPCC's predicted warming path (pink region) bears no relation to the global cooling data that the IPCC has observed in the 21st century to date. Source: SPPI global temperature index. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Is Food For Plants not "Air Pollutant" CO2 is not an "air pollutant," but rather food for plants and marine life. And its atmospheric levels are controlled by temperature and other biological/chemical variables -- not the other way around (Just as: Lung Cancer does not cause smoking). But most of all, a magical CO2 knob for controlling weather and climate simply does not exist. The possible effect that forcing down CO2 levels may have on plants by reducing the food supply are catastrophic. WHY BLAME CARBON DIOXIDE? The Answer:Democrats Are Using The Carbon Lie To Raise Taxes, WITHOUT CARBON DIOXIDE TO BLAME THE OBAMA'S TAX INCREASE OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS EVERYONE MUST PAY WHEN THEY FLIP ON A LIGHT SWITCH IS NOT NECESSARY. Turning on the Light = Cap and Trade = Democrat Tax Increase. Pelosi and the Democrats ignored American voters and listened to Obama and Gore as they lobbied for and passed the biggest tax increase in history that is estimated to increase energy costs per family by $1,600 to $3,200 each year. Obama promised over and over that he would cut taxes for the 95% of Americans making less than $250,000 per year during the campaign last year, in the debates, in speeches and now he lobbied for and got step one of his historic regressive tax increase on 100% of America, even those not paying income tax. Obama Campaigned On False Pretenses And Must Be Stopped. He pledged that his tax increases would only apply to the top 5% of Americans making over $250,000. Yet Obama fully supported passage of the House "Energy TAX" bill that taxes everyone that just flips on a light switch. STOP THE PR-BS and get ready for the Senate Fight. OBAMA ALREADY LOBBYING THE SENATE President Obama called on senators to disregard what he called the "misinformation" offered by critics of his energy bill, which passed the House of Representatives late Friday night despite GOP predictions that it will further damage the economy. "We must not be prisoners of the past," he said in his radio and Internet address. "Don't believe the misinformation out there that suggests there is somehow a contradiction between investing in clean energy and economic growth. It's just not true." Democrats pushing the bill have admitted that the total tax costs per family will increase. But the whole purpose of the bill is to raise the price of using carbon-based energy to reduce its use, 17% by 2020 and 83% by 2050. That is probably going to require even more than $3,000 per family per year. Obama's Carbon Disaster Obama fanatically believes in a carbon disaster and The Great Energy Lie - that Energy Emissions Cause Global Warming. Obama ignores sound science and the United Nations own data that the earth has been in a 10 year cooling period said of the bill's passage "There is no longer a debate about whether carbon pollution is placing our planet in jeopardy. It's happening." The bill will also result in millions of lost jobs and a weakened economy due to high cost energy. Remaining manufacturing in America will flee overseas. The coal industry will be phased out. China Rejects "Energy Tax" bill will not reduce global warming Obama is on his own as countries around the world such as France, Poland, Australia, the Czech Republic, and New Zealand are turning against the cap-and-trade "Energy Tax" regressive policies for their own countries, and China that Obama is borrowing 50 cents of every dollar he spend from and India have rejected the idea for their emerging economies all along. Even global warming advocates admit that the bill passed by the House will have no significant effect in reducing global warming, despite all of its costs for the America people. With these and other developments on the horizon Obama is poised to break the central promise of his campaign, which took him straight to the White House. Did Obama win last year on false pretenses? Perhaps he might remember this cautionary tale: When the first President Bush broke his campaign pledge not to raise taxes in 1990, he was booted out in the next election.
