Who Gave This Speech?

No one, but wouldn't it be great if someone did? Here it is...

"My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of the Iraq regime has been completed. Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete. This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short . The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains every one not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list.. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption. Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France or maybe China.

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bonne chance, mes amies.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this.. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York

A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2 its president and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I
will have a couple extra thousand tanks and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put
em? Yep, border security.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now. We are tired of the one-way highway.. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska- which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and it own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, 'darn tootin.'

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget.

To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.

God bless America.. Thank you and good night."

I have no clue who wrote this, but whoever he/she is has a great gift for satire. But there's a whole lot of thuth in here as well...

Stay Focused America!

So, Al Gore, Tell Me Again How WE Are Responsible For Global Warming?

This article just lends more credence to the fact that Al Gore has been trying to sham us all for his own personal gain. This guy, once a VICE PRESIDENT of the United States, and a candidate for PRESIDENT has been bold-facedly lying to us for years! Actually, I shouldn't be surprised, it seems for many politicians lying is in vogue...

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent – Thu Mar 4, 2:26 pm ET

OSLO (Reuters) – Large amounts of a powerful greenhouse gas are bubbling up from a long-frozen seabed north of Siberia, raising fears of far bigger leaks that could stoke global warming, scientists said.

It was unclear, however, if the Arctic emissions of methane gas were new or had been going on unnoticed for centuries -- since before the Industrial Revolution of the 18th century led to wide use of fossil fuels that are blamed for climate change.

The study said about 8 million tonnes of methane a year, equivalent to the annual total previously estimated from all of the world's oceans, were seeping from vast stores long trapped under permafrost below the seabed north of Russia.

"Subsea permafrost is losing its ability to be an impermeable cap," Natalia Shakhova, a scientist at the University of Fairbanks, Alaska, said in a statement. She co-led the study published in Friday's edition of the journal Science.

The experts measured levels of methane, a gas that can be released by rotting vegetation, in water and air at 5,000 sites on the East Siberian Arctic Shelf from 2003-08. In some places, methane was bubbling up from the seabed.

Previously, the sea floor had been considered an impermeable barrier sealing methane, Shakhova said. Current methane concentrations in the Arctic are the highest in 400,000 years.


"No one can answer this question," she said of whether the venting was caused by global warming or by natural factors. But a projected rise in temperatures could quicken the thaw.

"It's good that these emissions are documented. But you cannot say they're increasing," Martin Heimann, an expert at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Germany who wrote a separate article on methane in Science, told Reuters.

"These leaks could have been occurring all the time" since the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago, he said. He wrote that the release of 8 million tonnes of methane a year was "negligible" compared to global emissions of about 440 million tonnes.

Shakhova's study said there was an "urgent need" to monitor the region for possible future changes since permafrost traps vast amounts of methane, the second most common greenhouse gas from human activities after carbon dioxide.

Monitoring could resolve if the venting was "a steadily ongoing phenomenon or signals the start of a more massive release period," according to the scientists, based at U.S., Russian and Swedish research institutions.

The release of just a "small fraction of the methane held in (the) East Siberian Arctic Shelf sediments could trigger abrupt climate warming," they wrote.

The shelf has sometimes been above sea level during the earth's history. When submerged, temperatures rise by 12-17 degrees Celsius (22-31 F) since water is warmer than air. Over thousands of years, that may thaw submerged permafrost.

About 60 percent of methane now comes from human activities such as landfills, cattle rearing or rice paddies. Natural sources such as wetlands make up the rest, along with poorly understood sources such as the oceans, wildfires or termites.

Most studies about methane focus on permafrost on land. But the shelf below the Laptev, East Siberian and Russian part of the Chuckchi Sea is three times the size of Siberia's wetlands.

Do You Really Call This "Torture"? Come On, Give Me A Break!

So, if we didn't feed someone for two days, would that be torture too? If we prevented someone from sleeping for two days - torture? Or are those things just long-term discomfort?

"The galleries are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing. Down in the arena are the doers. They make mistakes because they try many things. The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure. He is the one who never tries anything. He is the break in the wheel of progress. And yet it cannot be truly said he makes no mistakes, because his biggest mistake is the very fact that he tries nothing, does nothing, except criticize those who do things."

This May Be The Most Important Amendment Introduced In The Past 100 Years... Call Your Congressmen; Urge Them To Support It!!!

Tea Party Amendment
Posted 03/03/2010 07:04 PM ET

Fiscal Crisis: Tea Partyers have made it clear they don't trust politicians — Democrat or Republican. Their historic uprising may now have a surefire way to stop politicians from spending us into the abyss.

In what promises to be a consequential election year, Republican leaders are eager to get the masses who make up the Tea Party movement on their side. But Tea Partyers remember that the GOP Congress and GOP president themselves spent way too much — even expanding the fiscally doomed Medicare entitlement program. Some Tea Party leaders even accuse Republican spendthrifts of practicing socialism.

GOP Reps. Jeb Hensarling of Texas, Mike Pence of Indiana and John Campbell of California may have just hit on a way of focusing the energy of a movement that's been accused by Democrats such as former Senate aide and Forbes columnist Dan Gerstein of being "incoherent, indiscriminate" and "all over the place" in its complaints.

The three have proposed a Spending Limit Amendment to the Constitution that would restrain the federal government to the average expenditures of the post-World War II era — 20% of the U.S. economy. It would take a declaration of war or a two-thirds vote by Congress to waive the spending constraints.

Tea Partyers will no doubt be impressed by the fact that the idea comes from no less than Thomas Jefferson. In 1798, the Declaration's author wrote: "I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government."

There really is no credible argument against the idea. In common-sense fashion, the constraint would be suspended during a declared war, and any other real emergency would surely be recognized as such by two-thirds of lawmakers.

Other attempts to save Americans from the drunken sailors they send to Washington have failed. The automatic cuts of the Gramm-Rudman "sequester" of the 1980s worked, but the Supreme Court judged much of the law to be an unconstitutional restriction on presidential powers, and Congress defanged it. Gramm-Rudman's successor, Paygo, didn't use fixed targets, and expired in 2002. The line-item veto was famously ruled unconstitutional by the high court.

The Hensarling-Pence-Campbell Spending Limit Amendment is actually preferable to the line-item veto because it doesn't discriminate between big-spending Congresses and profligate presidents. It snaps the public purse closed on every Washington politician's fingers.

The SLA couldn't come at a more opportune time. The president and Congress want to add to our current $12 trillion in national debt a $2-trillion-plus big government health overhaul. Medicare, in the meantime, is less than a decade from bankruptcy, Social Security less than three decades away. As the plan points out, "if the SLA is not adopted, all of these programs are doomed on their current auto-pilot glide path as these three entitlement programs alone — Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid — are set to consume the entirety of the federal budget by 2036."

Investor's Business Daily on Wednesday asked Hensarling and Pence about the difficulties of getting three-quarters of the states to approve an amendment when so many amendment attempts by both sides of the aisle — from equal rights for women to abortion to flag desecration — have failed in recent decades.

"We're not naive," Hensarling said, noting that of about 5,000 proposed amendments only 27 have been ratified. But both men said that based on attending town halls and other venues, they have never seen the American people so incensed about runaway spending. The SLA "might be one of those simple ideas," Pence said, whose time has finally come.

If the Tea Party movement embraces this simple idea, with Thomas Jefferson as the SLA's avatar, there's no telling how big the political tsunami to strike Washington could end up becoming.

The Al-Queda Seven

Here we have the United States Attorney - Eric Holder - espousing the shift to Progressives running the country. Holder has hired NINE attorneys who have represented or advocated for terrorist detainees. He won't release the names of seven of those attorneys. Why? What's he hiding? What's he afraid of? Do you still trust this government? They are so openly against increased liberty. They are so strongly pro big government. This entire group - the President, both houses of Congress, cabinet members, and appointees have got to go. And that can't happen soon enough for me!

Keep Your Eyes Open America!

Ask Yourself: "Am I Willing To Pay This Price?"

Thank God for real Patriots!

Write Your Senators In Support Of Jim Bunning

Dear Senators!

I AGREE with Sen. Bunning and I want Congress to FULLY FUND any new spending!

I expect that you will support Senator Bunning unconditionally in his stand on this issue, and I would also expect that you would do so publicly. I further believe that you should be leading the movement to embrace EVERY avenue available to DECREASE the amount of money spent annually by our government and to ELIMINATE the deficit entirely. If you fail to do either, you are remiss in your responsibility as a Senator to "uphold and protect" the Constitution because you are condoning the existence of conditions that undermine that document - and our very Liberty.

Do your job and make the tough choice! America depends on it!

Will you take the time to contact your Sernators and Representatives on this issue? Your voice could make the difference that saves America as we know it. Without it, she is in greater peril. Please take the time to get involved and stay involved. Thank you!

New DoD Logo

Here's the new Department of Defense insignia. Kind of reminds you of the Obama Logo doesn't it?
And what's up with the Islamic Crescent? What ever happened to the United States Flag? Is that symbol "old school"? We had better stay ahead of the progressives - their transformation of America will come in subtle ways, like this, as well as "in your face" arrogant ways. Wake Up America!

They Aren't Going Away Anytime Soon

The Progressives, who for years have silently and with great subtlety infiltrated our schools and our government, and who have brainwashed a generation or two of our children's minds, know that they are now in the fight of their lives. They understand that "average" America has woken up to the fact that a great disservice has been foisted upon us by progressives- Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike - and that we need to fight back in order to salvage the freedoms and rights our Founders provided to us through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Progressives thought they could continue to slowly build their system around and through the capitalist system America has enjoyed for centuries, but they ran into a problem. They miscalculated the response to the misguided arrogance of Obama, Reid and Pelosi, which has gotten out of hand and they've lost control of the "game". Now the horse is out of the barn, and they can't close the door. So we're all in a fight for America. Us to preserve the Constitution, and them to Transform America. Our way will lead to more freedom and liberty; theirs will lead to socialism, decline and the eventual destruction of arguably the greatest country the world has ever seen. You'll need to decide which side your on, but make it fast. The coming storm is fast approaching...

Come On America, We Have Lot's Of Work Ahead of Us!
