It’s Official: Dems Declare War on Teapartiers (aka Right Wing Extremists)

Posted on January 26, 2010. Filed under: General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , |

Fox News is now reporting the Dems are coming after us, fellow 912er’s and tea party participants. According to Fox:

Senate Democrats, seeking to breathe new life into their 2010 electoral prospects after their shocking loss in Massachusetts last week, are unveiling a new war strategy: divide and conquer the GOP.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee passed out a memo Tuesday advising Democratic campaign managers to define their Republican opponents early and to highlight the differences between moderate voters and tea party-style conservatives.

“Given the pressure Republican candidates feel from the extreme right in their party, there is a critical — yet time-sensitive — opportunity for Democratic candidates,” the DSCC wrote in the memo, which was obtained by “We have a finite window when Republican candidates will feel susceptible to the extremists in their party. Given the urgent nature of this dynamic, we suggest an aggressive effort to get your opponents on the record.”

The memo encourages Democratic candidates to compel their opponents to answer a series of questions on issues that have helped boost the tea party movement and reveal cracks in GOP unity, including health care, taxes and President Obama’s citizenship and ideology.

It goes on to list some of the questions:

“Do you believe that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen? Do you think the 10th Amendment bars Congress from issuing regulations like minimum health care coverage standards? Do you think programs like Social Security and Medicare represent socialism and should never have been created in the first place? Do you think President Obama is a socialist? Do you think America should return to a gold standard?”

I have a few questions for them:

Do you believe in the Constitution of the United States of America?

Have you personally read the Constitution of the United States of America?

Since you took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, can you tell us when exactly you plan to start doing that? Of course if you haven’t memorized the Constitution yet, can you tell me what makes you qualified to hold the job you do?

Exactly where in the Constitution of the United States of America does it say you can abuse your power by attempting to ram so called “reforms” down the throat of citizens who do not want any part of them?

Exactly where in the Constitution does it say you are entitled to luxury health care and entitlement programs not available to and paid for by hard working citizens of this country?

Exactly where in the Constitution does it call for Executive Orders? Bills to be “negotiated” behind closed doors? Vote counts to be corrupted? Lobbyists to buy favor? Expense accounts for government representatives that dwarf the average worker’s salary? Salaries for elected officials to be over 5 times that of the average worker? Where exactly does it say you can take my rights given me by GOD? Where exactly does it say you may impinge on my free speech? Where exactly does it say you can hand out free sex kits to my children at school? I would like you to point out the part that says you can send our jobs overseas, drive down the value of our dollar and steal the equity in our homes. I would also like you to point out the part that says you can fund banks, insurance companies and auto companies with our tax dollars. As long as you’re at it show me where it says the size of government is supposed to exceed that of the private sector.

Instead of preferring we get our news from stations with anchors that mention Lincoln as their favorite founding father, why don’t worry about studying the actual founding fathers and their intent.

If you think you have issues now with the American voter.. go ahead and ask your questions, that way we will know exactly who to vote for. It sure as hell is not going to be any of you.

The days of the Progressive in Washington DC are numbered. You may as well wear signs that say “endangered species”.

Just in case you pull an Obama on us and pretend our memories are about a day long, we have your records and we aren’t afraid to look them up.

Mr President, I know you’re going to try to sound like a moderate during the State of The Union Address, but we have a LOT of video we can repeatedly roll out to remind people you are for FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE – only now, many of us know exactly what that means, and we’re not buying it.

You said you would rather be a good one term president that a bad two term president ???  I think you left out an option there- just sayin’.

Those of you who heard the rumors but didn’t believe citizens who cherish the Constitution and a sound financial system were labeled “Right Wing Extremists” by your government – do you need more proof?

DSCC’s website says they are “Building Lasting Change For President Obama”. They sure aren’t doing it for the American people they are supposed to be representing. These are the members of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee responsible for the “memo” :



Harry Reid, Nevada Senator/ Senate Majority Leader

Bob Menendez, New Jersey Senator, DSCC Chair
Senior Staff

J.B. Poersch, Executive Director

Elizabeth Lowery, Finance Director

Martha McKenna, Political Director

Jude Meche, Director of IT

This kind of puts yesterday’s column in perspective, wouldn’t you say?

The Purposeful Dumbing Down of the Democratic Base

Posted on September 21, 2009. Filed under: Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

While watching and listening to the “ACORN” tapes released last week, one thing struck me in particular. It struck me like a ton of bricks. Corruption in ACORN- no, anyone who has been paying attention at all the last several years knows that. ACORN breaking the law- no, really- not actually news. The thing that struck me is that when the “hooker” suggested she wanted to educate the illegal minor prostitutes, being brought into this country to facilitate riches for yet another wanna-be crooked politician, the ACORN worker said- are you sure you want to do that? Educate them? An educated person may then have a choice. (editorial paraphrase) WOW! What an epiphany!
Let’s take a look at how sweeping an epiphany it is.
In an article that dates back to when Glenn Beck was with CNN, the point is clearly made:
The Poverty of Democrats’ Ideas for Cities
Poverty is one of the few national issues that, at least on the surface, unites us all. It’s not a political condition; it’s a human one. After all, when’s the last time you’ve heard a politician campaign on a pro-poverty platform? But although the problem may unite us, the solutions don’t. And perhaps nothing illustrates that better than what’s been happening in Detroit, Michigan, and Buffalo, New York. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly a third of the residents in those cities are living beneath the poverty line, the highest rates among large cities in the entire country. No matter what side of the political aisle you’re on, that is nothing short of appalling. Yet if you ask people what we should do about it, you’ll probably hear answers that inexplicably break down right along party lines.

Is there a perfect answer? Probably not. But what bothers me is that people stubbornly stick to their solution, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that it’s not working.

For example, Detroit, whose mayor has been indicted on felony charges, hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961. Buffalo has been even more stubborn. It started putting a Democrat in office back in 1954, and it hasn’t stopped since. Unfortunately, those two cities may be alone at the top of the poverty rate list, but they’re not alone in their love for Democrats. Cincinnati, Ohio (third on the poverty rate list), hasn’t had a Republican mayor since 1984. Cleveland, Ohio (fourth on the list), has been led by a Democrat since 1989. St. Louis, Missouri (sixth), hasn’t had a Republican since 1949, Milwaukee, Wisconsin (eighth), since 1908, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (ninth), since 1952 and Newark, New Jersey (10th), since 1907. The only two cities in the top 10 that I didn’t mention (Miami, Florida, and El Paso, Texas) haven’t had Republicans in office either — just Democrats, independents or nonpartisans.

Over the past 50 years, the eight cities listed above have had Republican leadership for a combined 36 years. The rest of the time — a combined 364 years — they’ve been led by Democrats. Five of the 10 cities with the highest poverty rates (Detroit, Buffalo, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Newark) have had a Democratic stranglehold since at least 1961: more than 45 years. Two of the cities (Milwaukee and Newark) have been electing Democrats since the first Model T rolled off the assembly line in 1908. Two cities, 100 years, all Democrats…

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, the asylums in those cities must be as full as the soup kitchens…

Detroit, remember, was going to be the ‘Model City’ of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, the shining example of what the ‘fairness’ of the welfare state can produce. Billions of dollars later, Detroit instead has become the model of everything that can go wrong when you hook people on the idea of something for nothing – a once-middle class city of nearly 2 million that is now a poverty-stricken city of less than 900,000.”

Ok, so let’s look at a few of our major US cities, starting with Detroit, MI.
Detroit: The Triumph of Progressive Public Policy by Jarrett Skorup at Mackinac Center for Public Policy
Imagine a city where all the major economic planks of the statist or “progressive” platform have been enacted:

  • A “living wage” ordinance, far above the federal minimum wage, for all public employees and private contractors.
  • A school system that spends significantly more per pupil than the national average.
  • A powerful school employee union that militantly defends the exceptional pay, benefits and job security it has won for its members.
  • A powerful government employee union that does the same for its members.
  • A tax system that aggressively redistributes income from businesses and the wealthy to the poor and to government bureaucracies.

Would this be a shining city on a hill, exciting the admiration of all? We don’t have to guess, because there is such a city – Detroit

Detroit has been dubbed “the most liberal city in America” and each of these “progressive” policies is alive and well there. How have they worked out? In 1950, Detroit was the wealthiest city in America on a per capita income basis. Today, the Census Bureau reports that it is the nation’s 2nd poorest major city, just “edging out” Cleveland.

Could it be pure coincidence that the decline occurred over the same period in which union power, the city government bureaucracy, taxes and business regulations all multiplied? While correlation is not causation, it is striking that the decline in per capita income is exactly what classical economists predict would occur when wage controls are imposed and taxes are increased.

…A similar pattern has played out in public education. It is now conventional wisdom among the political class that higher pay for teachers and increased spending per student lead to improvements in teacher quality and student performance. Again, correlation is not causation, but Detroit Public Schools strongly suggests that this theory must be rejected. It has chronically underperformed state averages, yet reforms are vehemently opposed by the system’s powerful school employee union.

At the same time that union, the Detroit Federation of Teachers, has won rich salary and benefits packages for its members. Median compensation for a DPS teacher is $76,000 and Detroit spends the third highest amount of money per student among 76 large cities nationwide. Statewide, Detroit’s spending per pupil is in the 91st percentile and DPS teachers are paid at the 96th percentile. For all that, by almost any measure Detroit schools have for decades failed their students: test scores, safety, drop out rates, etc. For example, Detroit’s public school students perform at the 3rd percentile in the state – that is, they are in the lowest 3 percent, and the district is in its second state takeover in a decade.

The fact of the matter is, high school drop out rates for these cities are staggering! Detroit- 78%, Cleveland -56%, Memphis 51.5%, Philadelphia 44.5%, St. Louis 50%, Milwaukee 55%, Buffalo 54%.

Money does not appear to be the real issue, either. As with Detroit, the Democratic governments and unions have been able to drum up financial support year after year, without showing any result in improvement of education. So what is the problem?

I think perhaps the Acorn worker said it best. Why would you want to educate them? Could it be that if the masses remain uneducated they will then continue to support failed systems. Us (the democrats) against “The Man” (the republicans). The truth is, in these cities, “The Man” is the Democratic party and the Democratic unions. The Democrats are not your friend. The Democrats are nothing more than a corrupt matrix of left wing causes, most of which are not at all what they pretend to be. All this talk of social justice is BS. The Democrats are WORKING FOR THEMSELVES, not the people the portend to help. This is evident and obvious. You only have to look around you to see that.

If you want to change the result, you must change the input. Stop electing these corrupt, self serving cock roaches into office. DEMAND SATISFACTORY RESULTS. Why do you continually limit your choice to one party? Why would you do something so foolish? People fought hard to give you CHOICE. Use it! Pay attention and arm yourself with facts. If you do not get the results you want, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! If you don’t like the results you are getting from your schools, either change them or enroll your kids in schools that actually work. Take responsibility to have the life you want instead of the one being provided for you by “The Man”. 

Unions are no better. What started out as a good idea so many years ago, has, too, been morphed into nothing but organized corruption.

This is not to say that by changing the party in charge your life will be better. Changing the quality and character of those in charge will, though. Consider the person and their background, along with their friends, when choosing whom to vote for. If you don’t see any one worth voting for, go find them. Change starts with you. Change does not trickle down. CHANGE TRICKLES UP!

People need to wake up. Advocate FOR YOURSELF! Do not allow others to advocate for you. Change your culture and you will change your life. Why are children allow to perpetuate the cycle by wallowing in hip hop and rap music? Why is cool to be uneducated? Why are drugs and crime permitted and condoned as a way of life? Only those who are impacted by this can answer this question. Slavery has not been abolished – it is self imposed by all who allow these conditions to exist.

News for 08/06/2009- America Is Not Even Recognizable Anymore

Spread the Word About the 09/12 Project
20,000 members and growing, but despite all Michigans woes with bad government, their participation is low. Let’s help change that. Citizen involvement is the answer to bad government- let’s spread the word! Together, maybe common sense can conquer corruption and lack of responsiveness by our “leaders and representatives”.



The White House is losing the health care debate. Polls from National Public Radio, Wall Street Journal/NBC News, The Washington Post, Gallup, and Pew all show that the American people do not support President Barack Obama’s health care plan. The White House wants people to believe they are losing the health care debate because “scary … videos are starting to percolate on the internet” that are spreading “disinformation” about Obama’s health care plan. The White House is even encouraging Obama supporters to help them identify people spreading this “disinformation.” The official White House blog now asks Americans: “If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to”


Is this really smoking gun of Obama’s Kenyan birth?

Obama’s War On Sherrif Joe Arpaio by American Thinker
You may have heard of Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio who has been a one man border enforcement machine – doing the job the feds refuse to do.
Well, Joe got himself in a spot of trouble with Obama administration immigration enforcement officials at Homeland Security by rounding up 13 illegal immigrants and trying to deliver them to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. One would think that ICE would be grateful to Sheriff Joe for doing their work for them. Not according to this editorial in the Washington Times. It seems that in the end, Joe was forced to let the illegals go – and ICE lied about the reason why.

What Don’t They Understand About the Word “REPRESENTATIVE” ?
Dems Say They Will Push ObamaCare through Despite Citizens’ Opposition
Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) has made it clear in the extreme that the Democrat Party will accept no disagreement from anyone–including the American people–to ObamaCare. Schumer said that “one way or another” the Democrats would push Socio-fascist ObamaCare through by the “end of the year,” despite exponentially increasing bi-partisan opposition from the American people. On CBS’ Face The Nation last Sunday, Schumer said:

“Make no mistake about it, the president is for this strongly. There will be a public option in the final bill.”- Bear in mind, a public “option” is no option at all. On page 16-Sec. 102 of H.R. 3200 (the House version of ObamaCare), which begins “Protecting the choice to Keep Private Coverage,” it is stated emphatically (lines 3-26) that it “OUTLAWS PRIVATE INSURANCE by forbidding enrollment after HR 3022 is passed into law.”

But.. ObamaCare to Eliminate Private Insurance
As Obama has said on multiple occasions (see below referenced video), it is his intention to replace all private healthcare insurance with government-ONLY ObamaCare. And Schumer’s comments have made it clearthat he and others elected to Congress are beholden to and standing with Dictator-in-Chief Obama against We-the-People.

And… Government and Media Attacks Against People’s Opposition to Obama
Joining with their mainstream media outlets (including but, not limited to ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, CNBC and MSNBC), Democrats are now also denigrating grass roots protests to the clearly Socio-fascist and anti-human ObamaCare plan–a plan bent upon replacing all Americans’ (except Congress, the Executive and Judicial branches of government and government and union workers) choices for healthcare. These media are also refusing to report on the true numbers of grassroots protestors (independently reported as between 8,000-10,000 in some locations) to ObamaCare and have joined with their Democrat co-conspirators to blame “right-wing nut groups” and the now powerless-in-Congress GOP for any and all opposition to any and all of the ObamaPlans; this time specifically Obama’s replacement of US healthcare that is considered the best in the world with his own brand.
