Hugo Chavez retains leadership of Venezuela

December 4, 2006

In an apparent overwhelming victory, Hugo Chavez is re-elected to another 6 year term as President of Venezuela.

This “hate America” leader, who sees “Fidel Castro as a father” had the majority of his support from the poor, which make up about 67% of the population in a country rich with oil. Why?

Chavez has won a loyal following among the poor through multibillion-dollar social programs including subsidized food, free university education and cash benefits for single mothers.

He is also big into “land grabbing” allowing peasant farmers to move onto purchased “private property” of cattle ranchers…

these peasant farmers saying “they are not invaders or squatters but hardworking people and are “claiming what is owed to us”“.

In his class warfare stance regarding this “land grab” Chavez states:

For too long, he said, the rich have had it all their own way – to the detriment of the majority of the people.

“We need to reshape our country, and land reform is an important part of the process.”
Revolution on Venezuela’s estates

This socialistic, modern day “Robin Hood” who feels it is right to rob from the “rich” to give to the “poor” will do nothing to actually help his people rise from the poverty level, but I think he knows that! He wants to keep them under government control with all his social programs….stay poor and we will supply all your needs (education, health, food, homes, etc)!!

But YIKES….does type of “socialism” and “class warfare” sound familiar in any way, shape or form to some of our current “leftist politicians”?? Do the peasant farmers sound like the illegals in OUR country?

Something to think about………

NY Town declares “Santa” a Religious Figure

December 3, 2006

Just when I thought I’d heard it all……Sanfordville Elementry School in Warwick, NY, caves to whims of ONE against the majority and has apparently, in their lack of cajones, declared SANTA a RELIGIOUS FIGURE!!!

Yes, you’re reading right…we are not talking about the Nativity Scene, Mary, Joseph or the Baby Jesus, we’re not talking about the singing of Silent Night, Oh Come All Ye Faithful, or O Holy Night….we are talking about elementary school kids having breakfast and a picture with Santa Claus!!!!

(CNSNews.com) – A Christmas-themed event to raise money at a public elementary school in Warwick, N.Y., has been altered to accommodate a parent’s complaints that the program would illegally spotlight a “religious” figure – Santa Claus.

“Breakfast With Santa” has since been changed to “Winter Wonderland Breakfast,” ……

That parent, who did not wish to have her name used, wrote a letter to the school board asserting that Santa represents Christmas — a Christian holiday…

These radical leftist types are arguing that just because 95 percent of Americans, according to recent polling, celebrate Christmas, they ought not to have that right” since a person with a different view might object.

Read the entire article at:Discoverthenetworks.org

Please note that this Christmas fund raiser was being held on a SATURDAY, not on a school day or a school night, and therefore, attendance is optional…NOT mandatory!! Therefore this “hum-bug down with Santa” parent could have kept their happy ass at HOME instead of attempting to interfere with the rights and enjoyment of others!!

This is a display of total stupidity, first on the part of the ONE parent and second on the part of the school district who chose to “buckle” to the whims of an idiot!! This political corruption, oops..I mean correctness, is totally out of control!!

When will the people say ENOUGH of this type of bullshit??


The issue goes beyond Keith Ellison

December 2, 2006

Even before being “sworn” in as a Congressman, Keith Ellison, has already caused great controversy and divide in America. In fact, this is my THIRD article on this subject alone!!!

Why, because of his statements regarding the use of a Koran for his “swearing in” ceramony!! His office calls the “outrage” by those of us that see this as a slap in the face as a “broo-haa-haa”…and goes into the “freedom of religion” stance!!

In my opinion, this is NOT a freedom of religion issue…this is an issue about AMERICAN values, traditions and culture and what AMERICA stands for!!

Let him take his prayer rug, face Mecca 5 times a day and pray away…. but do NOT throw the “religion” of people who want to kill Americans, who are at war with our Country and have killed and wounded our troops in the battlefield, into our face while taking an “oath” to protect and serve our country!!!!!!!

Although Ellison is going to use this as a “I’ll do what in the hell I want because I have the right” issue this goes way beyond Ellison…..it goes to the heart and soul of America!!!

Rymes with Right, who has a differing opinion regarding my stance on this particular issue, has made a good point of:

Frankly, my preference would be that every public official take their oath of office upon an open copy of the US Constitution in the hope of inspiring fidelity to THAT document.

I could go for that…….

And FautlineUSA has another excellent article I would suggest you reading on this subject and has another suggestion:

Perhaps it’s time for a constitutional amendment?

I submit for example: “No person shall hold any office or public Trust under the United States who adheres to or gives allegiance to any religion, ideology, or organization which by word, nature, association, or action has shown intent to undermine the sovereignty of these United States!”

Unfortunately, neither of these great suggestions will ever be considered in this politically correct society…..America, as we knew it, is slowly slipping and unless and until WE THE PEOPLE start shouting “no more” and continue to shout “no more”, not giving in or giving up, we will turn around one day and not even know where we are or what country we live in!!!

Theodore Roosevelt wrote in 1907:

“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

We must also remember the saying:

“There are none so blind as he who will not see”


Pig Races vs. Katy Islamic Association (K.I.A)

December 1, 2006

All has been well in Katy, TX……A suburban town just east of Houston. At the end of Baker Road residents have gone about their daily life, enjoying the tranquility of the neighborhood and the peace and fullfillment that owning your “little piece of heaven” is all about in America!

So why now are these once quiet, peaceful residents up in arms? What could possible have caused their “tail feathers” to ruffle?

Well, the answer is simple…The Katy Islamic Association (K.I.A.) has purchased 11 acres of property on that road and plans to build a mosque, and eventually a school and gym, in this quiet, non-pretenitious neightborhood.

They have JUST bought this property and already are complaining because of Craig Baker’s “pet pigs” and the fact that he will soon be having “Friday Night Pig Races” on HIS property that he/his family have OWNED FOR YEARS!! In fact, Baker Road was named my Mr. Baker’s family years ago!! Talk about having “roots” and ties to an area!!

Youssof Allam , a member of K.I.A. sees Mr. Baker’s pigs and his upcoming pig races as offense as “It’s (pig) looked upon as a dirty creature.”

So, my question…why the hell don’t they find another place to build their mosque? Residents and homeowners have already offerred to buy the land from the K.I.A. for over a million dollars, but another member of the Islamic Association, Alvi Muzfar, is not interested in the offer and states, “We’re not going anywhere.”

For the complete article please see Residents use pig races to deter building of mosque

So there’s the stale mate…….and here are some questions to ask yourself……

1. Would YOU want the “daily call” to prayer broadcast via speakers through your neighborhood 5 times per day?

2. Where are Mr. Baker’s rights, and the rights of the residents of that
neighborhood that have lived there for years?

3. What makes building a mosque more important than the rights of the majority of a neighborhood?

4. If Mr. Baker and his neighbors want to have “pig races” why shouldn’t they? Is one “offense” more important than another?

5. Where will this ALL end….??

For a “group” of people that say they want to be accepted, fit in, and enjoy “the American dream”, blah, blah, blah……the K.I.A. is already showing its “spots” and definitely will NOT be the cordial neighbors that Baker Street is use to having! And do you think that the complaints of offense by the K.I.A. will end with the “Pig Races”? Absolutely not…before long it will be just HAVING pigs in their presence will be an offense and so on, and so on, and so on….!! Where is THEIR tolerance? Oh…I’m sorry, it apparently doesn’t apply to them!? Foolish me…….

People, we had better wake up NOW….the majority (not all) of the Muslim population does not want to integrate INTO the American culture…they want to TAKE OVER the American culture!!

This COULD happen to you, your neighborhood, your town!! And for those that want to bitch at me, call me a bigot a racist or anything else you can think of…please go right ahead…and in fact, I invite you to call the K.I.A. and invite them to build their mosque next door to YOU and I’m sure that the residents of Baker Road will appreciate and thank you!!!

**** Update ****

A pic of pig races…not in Katy, but this is the fun they are wanting to have on Friday nights!! What’s the problem here?

Ellison, the Koran and America

November 30, 2006

Well, there has been quite a bit of controversy surrounding Ellison’s future swearing in to his Congressional position on the Koran!! In fact, this is my second article on this subject.

There are those that say, “let him”, “who cares”, “freedom of religion”, blah, blah, blah….

Well to me, this is NOT a freedom of religion issue!! No one will be stopping him from bringing in his “prayer rug” and “praying toward Mecca” 5 times a day, by the way, in a TAXPAYER PAID OFFICE!!! Although I personally am uncomfortable with that, not allowing him to pray as he sees fit would be a freedom of religion issue! And, as a citizen of the United States and a taxpayer, it is my obligation to support our elected officials with my tax dollars regardless of whether I support their religious beliefs!

There are then the arguments that state this is a “religious test” which is also against Article VI of the Constitution. I say this is ALSO incorrect!!

Article VI of the Constitution states: “…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” It seems like everyone is just seeing the words “no religious test” and NOT reading the rest of the sentence!!

As we can see, the fact that Ellison is a Muslim was NOT held against him whatsoever!! He was apparently qualified to run, did run, and was ulitmately elected by the 5th District of Minnesota (despite his apparent lack of ethics!)! Therefore, Article VI of the Constitution was upheld as we can all clearly see!!

Others “joke” about taking an oath on a cookbook, their plasma tv, etc, etc….

Well my friends, I personally, do not see this as a joking matter! For an elected office to take an oath to protect our country, its people, its Constitution, and who has the lives of our military men and women in their hands should be taken with grave seriousness!!

Our great nation is made up, not only of laws, but of traditions and values that, if we do not protect, will only serve to weaken the sovereignty of our Country even more!!

Considering the majority of the terrorists are of the Islamic “faith” (FACT), base their faith on the Koran, state their “faith and their book” claims they are to “kill the infidels” (which we have witnessed through the suicide bombers, the beheadings, etc), state they “hate America and all western ideals”……for an elected official of OUR COUNTRY to take on oath on a “book” that is totally against our country and what we, as Americans stand for, but yet promising to uphold our Constitution and its laws, is, not only an oxymoron, but would be a SLAP IN THE FACE to our nation and the American people!!

Keith Ellison to take oath on Koran?

November 28, 2006

Recently elected to fill the vacancy that is being left by Martin Sabo, who is retiring after his 28 years in Congress, is Democrat Keith Ellison who will be representing Minnesota’s 5th District, when he is sworn in January 2007.

Mr. Ellison will make history as the first Muslim to ever sit in Congress. So…what is the problem some people ask???

Well, other than Mr. Ellison’s stellar records as a “citizen” and state representative, by having his drivers license suspended (he couldn’t remember how many times) due to failure to pay multiple fines and traffic tickets, to the IRS putting a lien on his home for late and back taxes between 1992 and 2000 (which was later paid in excess of $18,000) to his campaign finance violations and misinformation (from the soon to be “cleanest congress in history)…….what other problems could there be??

First off, Mr. Ellison totally downplayed his Muslim faith, never bringing it to the forefront and only mentioned it briefly when asked a specific question. Call me whatever you wish, but in these pre 9/11 days, when all over the world Muslim terrorists are shouting “Death to America”, “kill the infidels”, etc..I feel this IS an issue!!

Mr. Ellison received funds and support from CAIR (Council for American-Islamic Relations) who IS known for post 9/11 ties to terrorism and in which many of the CAIR officials were convicted of, or pled guilty to, support of Islamic terrorists!! Mr. Ellison was then to appear at CAIR’s banquet as a guest speaker, but apparently, back-peddled out of it!

Mr. Ellison appears to have been less than honest in his dealing with the Nation of Islam and and in his “disagreeable” dealings..for example:

At a rally for the Million Man March held at the University of Minnesota, Ellison appeared onstage with Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who ran true to form: According to a contemporaneous Star Tribune article, “If words were swords, the chests of Jews, gays and whites would be pierced.”

In a November 6, 1995, column for the Minneapolis periodical Insight News, Ellison wrote under the name “Keith X Ellison.” He condemned a Star Tribune editorial cartoon that was critical of Farrakhan as a role model for blacks because of his anti-Semitism. Ellison argued to the contrary.

Then, in February 1997, Ellison appeared as a local spokesman for the Nation of Islam with the last name “Muhammad.” ….published in the Minneapolis Spokesman-Recorder, Elli son said:

We stand by the truth contained in the remarks attributed to [Ms. Jackson]……..Ellison’s May 28 letter acknowledges only that others supported Jackson’s alleged statement in that controversy while falsely denying that he himself did so.

…in 1998, when he ran for the DFL nomination for state representative as “Keith Ellison-Muhammad.” In a contemporaneous article on his candidacy in the Insight News, Ellison is reported still defending Louis Farrakhan.

Ellison says now that he broke with the Nation of Islam when “it became clear to me that their message of empowerment intertwined with more negative messages.” However, Ellison himself was the purveyor of the Nation of Islam’s noxious party line in his every public utterance touching on related issues over the course of a decade. Moreover, Ellison’s unsavory associations were not limited to the Nation of Islam.

Perhaps the lowest moment in Minneapolis’s history was the September 1992 execution-style murder of police officer Jerry Haaf. Haaf was shot in the back as he took a coffee break at a restaurant in south Minneapolis. The murder was a gang hit performed by four members of the city’s Vice Lords gang. The leader of the Vice Lords was Sharif Willis, a convicted murderer who had been released from prison and who sought respectability as a responsible gang leader from gullible municipal authorities while operating a gang front called United for Peace.

Within a month of Haaf’s murder, Ellison appeared with Willis supporting the United for Peace gang front. In October 1992, Ellison helped organize a demonstration against Minneapolis police that included United for Peace.

Ellison publicly supported the Haaf murder defendants. In February 1993, he spoke at a demonstration for one of them during his trial. Ellison led the crowd assembled at the courthouse in a chant that was ominous in the context of Haaf’s cold-blooded murder: “We don’t get no justice, you don’t get no peace.”

The various themes of Ellison’s public commitments and associations all came together in a February 2000 speech he gave at a fundraising event sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of the far-left National Lawyers Guild, on whose steering committee he had served. The event was a fundraiser for former Symbionese Liberation Army member Kathleen Soliah after her apprehension in St. Paul (under the name “Sara Jane Olson”) for the attempted murder of Los Angeles police officers in 1975.

Ellison weirdly referred to Soliah/ Olson as a “black gang member” (she is white) and thus a victim of government persecution. ….He also spoke favorably of cop killers Mumia Abu-Jamal and Assata Shakur. (Shakur has been on the lam in Cuba since 1984; last year she was placed on the FBI’s domestic terrorists list with a one million dollar reward for her capture.)

For complete article read Scott Johnson’s “Louis Farrakhan’s First Congressman” from Weekly Standard.

After THAT background, we now have Mr. Ellison stating that he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the Koran!!

I’m sorry, but does that not make anyone nervous whatsoever!!?? We have Islamic terrorist spouting the Koran and yelling “Allah Akbar” before blowing people up, beheading people, etc!! Now, I am NOT SAYING that Ellison is or has condonned those types of actions, BUT, with the “ties” to CAIR and the Nation of Islam I am a bit more cautious!

Also, I do NOT believe that the oath of office to protect this country should be taken except on the Bible…the Koran is unacceptable!! This is AMERICA and Ellison is swearing to PROTECT THIS COUNTRY…NOT Islam! It does make one wonder what side would he be on if it came down to “brass tacks”!!!

Dennis Prager made some excellent points in his article: America, not Keith Ellison, decides what book a congressman takes his oath on .

Devotees of multiculturalism and political correctness who do not see how damaging to the fabric of American civilization it is to allow Ellison to choose his own book need only imagine a racist elected to Congress. Would they allow him to choose Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” the Nazis’ bible, for his oath? And if not, why not? On what grounds will those defending Ellison’s right to choose his favorite book deny that same right to a racist who is elected to public office?

…But for all of American history, Jews elected to public office have taken their oath on the Bible, even though they do not believe in the New Testament, and the many secular elected officials have not believed in the Old Testament either. …. Nor has one Mormon official demanded to put his hand on the Book of Mormon. And it is hard to imagine a scientologist being allowed to take his oath of office on a copy of “Dianetics” by L. Ron Hubbard.

When all elected officials take their oaths of office with their hands on the very same book, they all affirm that some unifying value system underlies American civilization. If Keith Ellison is allowed to change that, he will be doing more damage to the unity of America and to the value system that has formed this country than the terrorists of 9-11.

When does political correctness end? This is America, and although we are made up of many cultures and backgrounds, we are to come together as ONE NATION if our country is to survive!!!

Another great article can be found at Power Lines, Keith Ellison for Dummies by Scott Johnson.

My last question……how cold was it in Minnesota in November? It seems like the 5th District may have had a “brain freeze”!!!


Rangel has “foot in mouth” disease

November 28, 2006

Just when you thought everyone would calm down the rhetoric and enjoy the holidays…….Rangel, once again, has shoved his foot in this mouth regarding our brave military men and women!!

Can’t your just see him and Kerry, holding hands and dancing into the moonlight, whirling and twirling with each other, giggling and singing, as their “hate the military” ideas are broadcast over the airwaves, and unfortunately, are heard by those fighting for our country!! What a shameful disgrace they are!!!!

In an interview with Chris Wallace, Fox News Sunday, Rangel was asked about his reintroduction of a “draft bill” due to another recent statement he made:

The great majority of people bearing arms in this country, for this country in Iraq, are from the poorer communities in our inner cities and rural areas.

Chris Wallace debunked Rangel’s claims with research from the Heritage Foundation and then asked Rangel the following:

…Congressman, in fact, contrary to what you’ve been saying, isn’t the volunteer army better educated and more well-to-do than the general population?

Rangel, in his typical “hate the uneducated, unprofessional, poor, and stupid” military answered:

Of course not. ….. I want to make it abundantly clear, if there’s anyone who believes that these youngsters want to fight, as the Pentagon and some generals have said, you can just forget about it. No young, bright individual wants to fight just because of a bonus and just because of educational benefits. And most all of them come from communities of very, very high unemployment.

If a young fellow has an option of having a decent career or joining the Army to fight in Iraq, you can bet your life that he would not be in Iraq.

……those who have the least opportunities at this age find themselves in the military, as I did when I was 18 years old.

First, Rangel must be forgetting that he is 76 years old and in 1948 when he served (58 years ago!!!) a whole hell of alot of things were different in this country and this world!!! I also don’t see him THANKING the military, as without them HE most likely would not have gotten the education HE did!!! It seems like he cannot get himself out of the past, and continues to play the “I was a poor boy and joined the Army because I had nothing else” attitude!!

In fact, he did an interview in 1997 with Foundation News and Commentary on education, that was published in 1998 (he must have forgotten what he said then) in which Rangel stated regarding his own upbringing:

…..if kids aren’t nurtured by caring parents and teachers. His own experience involved growing up in a single-parent household in pre-civil-rights-era Harlem. He dropped of school at age 17. He joined the Army. He went back to school at age 23 to earn a GED degree, a college degree (from New York University) and a law degree (from St. John’s University School of Law). Says Rangel now, “I owe my life to God and the GI bill.”

So….just because HE was uneducated and joined the Army, he seems to think that, 58 years later, ALL our military men and women must be poor, uneducated and stupid! He seems to have so much anger in him because of his life that he also forgets that had it NOT been for the Army, he might very well have ended up in jail or worse…….instead of freely running around spewing his garbage!!!

Charlie, instead of disparaging our troops, why don’t you find it in your heart to take a different approach….THANK them for their wonderful service and their sacrifices, thank the military for YOUR life “off the streets”, and try to be an example to young, black men and women (some whom may not have the advantages YOU now do thanks to the military)!! This would be a much better approach than the scare tatics and hate you spew forth…you are an embarrasement to this country, our military and your party!!!
