Land Grab By the Federal Government? - Glenn Beck - FOXNews.com

Your Government in action. How long has this been going on? Through how many Administrations? And Why? Why are they tying up land that could free us from energy dependence? What's their end game? So many questions, and no one giving us the answers. But I know this, the government is not the friend of liberty and freedom. I'm not exactly sure when that started, but it was decades ago. So ALL politicians are complicit, as NONE have given shared the facts with us. Americans are noticing, and there will be a reckoning at some point. In my opinion, the flashpoint isn't far off...

While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama, and his being our president.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, Obama is just a Post Turtle."

 Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, What's a "Post Turtle?"

The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain.
"You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he sure as heck ain't goin' anywhere, and you just
wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place."

What This Is Really ALL About

The Deadrise - dailypress.com: "Loggerhead turtles to be listed as endangered-species

The federal government wants to list the loggerhead turtle as an endangered-species, a designation that could boost the terrapin but place new regulations on marine activity.

The massive turtles, which visit the Chesapeake Bay every summer, have been classified as a threatened species since 1978. They have been in decline since the late 1990s, said Jack Musick, a professor emeritus and sea turtle expert at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Among the reasons: they are snagged in fishing nets and their nesting areas have been damaged, he said.

An endangerment declaration will likely place more restrictions on marine activity, such as dredging and fishing, Musick said.

Stay tuned for more details."

What this really means is the Obama Administration is doing an end around that will prevent us from offshore drilling anywhere this turtle swims. Another obstacle to ensuring energy self-sufficiency! Once again, we have the tail wagging the dog, as the "environmental movement" is being used by the government to control the rights and welfare of hundreds of millions of Americans!

Have you started to engage politically? Have you stayed engaged? Will you continue to take the time to write, call or email your Congressmen and the White House? Do you have the stamina for the long haul? I said months ago this struggle we're in will last years. I'm revising that prediction. It will last our lifetimes and beyond! If you don't believe that, you haven't been reading, listening or learning! Get involved. Knowledge is power! Don't let America as we know her slide into history because of your apathy.

Come On America! There's Lots of Work Ahead!

Letter to AARP

So many people are sick and tired of what has been happening in this country - not only by our government, but by those who lobby them, and who are coerced by them. It is SO refreshing to see people from all walks of life speaking out without fear of reprisal about their feelings on the subjects dear to them. Socialism will not fly in America! It won't be allowed. It may be attempted; it may be rammed down our throats by out of control politicians; it may be taught in our schools and programmed into the minds of our children. But in the end, we WILL NOT allow it. It's that simple.

I had given up my AARP membership several months ago as well. I hope everyone who reads this will do the same. The less money they have to spend against us, the better. There are other alternatives out there with whom seniors can get involved. Choose wisely!

Here's a letter from a senion citizen to AARP. Snopes has confirmed it as legitimate. The link will take you directly to the letter, along with some comments from Mrs. Miller.

snopes.com: Letter to AARP

This was sent to Mr. Rand who is the Executive Director of AARP.


Dear Mr. Rand,

Recently you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date. I know it is not what you were looking for, but this is the most honest response I can give you. Our gap in coverage is merely a microscopic symptom of the real problem, a deepening lack of faith.

While we have proudly maintained our membership for several years and have long admired the AARP goals and principles, regrettably, we can no longer endorse it's abdication of our values. Your letter specifically stated that we can count on AARP to speak up for our rights, yet the voice we hear is not ours. Your offer of being kept up to date on important issues through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents neither an impartial view nor the one we have come to embrace. We do believe that when two parties agree all the time on everything presented to them, one is probably not necessary. But, when the opinions and long term goals are diametrically opposed, the divorce is imminent. This is the philosophy which spawned our 200 years of government.

Once upon a time, we looked forward to being part of the senior demographic. We also looked to AARP to provide certain benefits and give our voice a power we could not possibly hope to achieve on our own. AARP gave us a sense of belonging which we no longer enjoy. The Socialist politics practiced by the Obama administration and empowered by AARP serves only to raise the blood pressure my medical insurance strives to contain. Clearly a conflict of interest there!

We do not understand the AARP posture, feel greatly betrayed by the guiding forces that we expected to map out our senior years and leave your ranks with a great sense of regret. We mitigate that disappointment with the relief of knowing that we are not contributing to the problem anymore by renewing our membership. There are numerous other organizations which offer discounts without threatening our way of life or offending our sensibilities.

This Presidential Administration scares the living daylights out of us. Not just for ourselves, but for our proud and bloodstained heritage. But even more importantly for our children and grandchildren. Washington has rendered Soylent Green a prophetic cautionary tale rather than a nonfiction scare tactic. I have never in my life endorsed any militant or radical groups, yet now I find myself listening to them. I don't have to agree with them to appreciate the fear which birthed their existence. Their borderline insanity presents little more than a balance to the voice of the Socialist mindset in power. Perhaps I became American by a great stroke of luck in some cosmic uterine lottery, but in my adulthood I CHOOSE to embrace it and nurture the freedoms it represents as well as the responsibilities it requires.

Your website generously offers us the opportunity to receive all communication in Spanish. ARE YOU KIDDING??? Someone has broken into our 'house', invaded our home without our invitation or consent. The President has insisted we keep the perpetrator in comfort and learn the perp language so we can communicate our reluctant welcome to them.

I DON'T choose to welcome them.
I DON'T choose to support them.
I DON'T choose to educate them.
I DON'T choose to medicate them, pay for their food or clothing.

American home invaders get arrested. Please explain to me why foreign lawbreakers can enjoy privileges on American soil that Americans do not get? Why do some immigrants have to play the game to be welcomed and others only have to break & enter to be welcomed?

We travel for a living. Walt hauls horses all over this great country, averaging over 10,000 miles a month when he is out there. He meets more people than a politician on caffeine overdose. Of all the many good folks he enjoyed on this last 10,000 miles, this trip yielded only ONE supporter of the current administration. One of us is out of touch with mainstream America . Since our poll is conducted without funding, I have more faith in it than one which is power driven.

We have decided to forward this to everyone on our mailing list, and will encourage them to do the same. With several hundred in my address book, I have every faith that the eventual exponential factor will make a credible statement to you.

I am disappointed as hell.
I am scared as hell.
I am MAD as hell, and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!
