Does AARP Think It’s OK to Kill Granny? Where is the Voice of ACLU on Cars.gov?  Why is the left silent? The more time passes the more I realize NOTHING is about what it seems to be about! Government is smoke and mirrors and EVERYONE needs to pay attention! Unless of course communist America is ok with you.

Cars.gov includes disclaimer they are able to track all your internet moves, computer files forever, just for logging on. http://newsbusters.org/blogs/jeff-poor/2009/07/31/beck-exposes-cash-clunkers-language-giving-feds-authority-take-control-co “Here is Cars.gov. Let’s say you go in, if I understand this right – I go in and I say, ‘I want to turn in my clunker.’ The dealer goes to Cars.gov, and then they hit submit transaction. Here it says, ‘Privacy Act & Security Statement,’ and you’re just like, ‘Oh, it’s the Privacy Act of 1974. Whatever, I agree. Now, this is how bad this system is.” “A warning box comes up, and it says, ‘This application provides to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a federal computer system and it is property of the United States government,'” Beck read. “‘Any and all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, both domestic and foreign.'” Kimberly Guilfoyle, a legal analyst for Fox News interpreted the language to mean the government has very broad authority over your computer – including the ability to seize personal and private information.

Senate Bill SB-2009 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own. It may require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun. This bill was introduced on Feb.. 24. This bill will become public knowledge 30 days after it is voted into law. This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee can pass this without the Senate voting on it at all. The full text of the proposed amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage, http://www.senate.gov/ You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2009. You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do. Please tell every gun owner you know. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, a physician, appointed to Obama health care job admits killing old people is the only way to cut costs! http://www.nypost.com/php/pfriendly/print.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nypost.com%2Fseven%2F07242009%2Fpostopinion%2Fopedcolumnists%2Fdeadly_doctors_180941.htm

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. He has already been appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research. Emanuel bluntly admits that the cuts will not be pain-free. “Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely ‘lipstick’ cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change,” he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008). Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, “as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others” (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008). Yes, that’s what patients want their doctors to do. But Emanuel wants doctors to look beyond the needs of their patients and consider social justice, such as whether the money could be better spent on somebody else. Emanuel, however, believes that “communitarianism” should guide decisions on who gets care. He says medical care should be reserved for the non-disabled, not given to those “who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens . . . An obvious example is not guaranteeing health services to patients with dementia” (Hastings Center Report, Nov.-Dec. ’96). Translation: Don’t give much care to a grandmother with Parkinson’s or a child with cerebral palsy. He explicitly defends discrimination against older patients: “Unlike allocation by sex or race, allocation by age is not invidious discrimination; every person lives through different life stages rather than being a single age. Even if 25-year-olds receive priority over 65-year-olds, everyone who is 65 years now was previously 25 years” (Lancet, Jan. 31). The bills being rushed through Congress will be paid for largely by a $500 billion-plus cut in Medicare over 10 years. Knowing how unpopular the cuts will be, the president’s budget director, Peter Orszag, urged Congress this week to delegate its own authority over Medicare to a new, presidentially-appointed bureaucracy that wouldn’t be accountable to the public.

News for 07/14/2009- God Given Rights, Another 1984 Alert, Bailout for the Favored, Liberals Who Hate

Posted on July 14, 2009. Filed under: Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , |

Senator Durbin…You are Simply *WRONG* by Aceintex
http://www.theminorit…
(Yesterday during the Sotomayor hearing,Senator Dick Durbin quoted) Senator Paul Simon of Illinois during the 1993 Hearings to confirm Roth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court said:
“You face a much harsher judge than this committee. That’s the judgment of history. And that judgment is likely to revolve around the question “Did she restrict freedom, or did she expand it?” Then, he went on to say: “It is the Supreme Court that defines our personal rights to privacy…and decides the restrictions that can be placed on the most personal aspects of our lives. The court decides the rights of the victims of discrimination, immigrants, consumers. The nine justices decide whether Congress has the authority to pass laws to protect our civil rights and our environment. It decides what checks will exist on the Executive Branch in war…and in peace. MY RIGHTS COME FROM GOD NOT NINE JUDGES, OR 100 SENATORS WHO EMPOWER THEM TO JUDGE ME. ”
MY RIGHTS ARE DIVINE RIGHTS. THEY ARE ENDOWED UPON ME BY MY CREATOR! NO SENATOR, CONGRESSMAN, PRESIDENT, OR EVEN SUPREME COURT JUSTICE CAN ADD ONE JOT OR ONE TITLE TO THE RIGHTS THAT ARE GIVEN TO ME BY MY CREATOR! THESE JUSTICES ARE NOT GOD, (LET ALONE A GOD I WOULD WORSHIP) AND THEY CAN NOT GIVE ME ONE RIGHT THAT IS NOT MINE BY RIGHT OF BIRTH.AN DIVINE APPOINTMENT!

Obama-meters on the way… by Steve Milloy at Canada Free Press
http://canadafreepres…
Baltimore Gas & Electric is leading the way to electricity rationing, courtesy of President Obama. The utility announced to day that it filed with local regulators an application to install 2 million so-called “smart meters” in the homes of its residential customers. Smart meters allow local utilities to control electricity use in your home. Using a $200 million Department of Energy grant — part of the $787 billion Stimulus Package enacted earlier in the year — BG&E plans to charge customers for the balance of the costs. BG&E claims that benefits to consumers (about $5 per month) will amount to about three times the cost of the meters. Not only is this benefit trivial, it’s pretty phony. It comes from you using less electricity or using electricity at less convenient times — things you can already do without the meter. What’s the benefit from doing less or being inconvenienced? We don’t know about you, but we’re not interested in selling our freedom to use electricity as we choose — especially for a lousy $5/month. Also, consider that, since smart meters allow two-way communication, each meter represents a node from which a hacker can gain entry to the grid and wreak havoc. The ultimate purpose of the meters is to allow local utilities to ration electricity as demand is rising faster than supply, a phenomenon that can be traced to the greens blocking construction of new power plants and transmission lines. Rolling power outages are already being planned for the Baltimore-Washington area starting as early as 2011-2012. Smart is the new dumb.

Minority Broadcasters Seek Financial Bailout by Fawn Johnson for WSJ

http://online.wsj.com…

WASHINGTON –A group of minority broadcasters asked Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner Monday for financial assistance akin to the aid that has been extended to the financial and auto industries. “Minority-owned broadcasters are close to becoming an extinct species,” the letter said. “Even in better economic times, minority broadcasters have historically had difficulties accessing the capital markets.” The broadcasters told Mr. Geithner they can bounce back if they are given some temporary assistance while the credit markets are slow. “Unlike the auto business, broadcasting has been healthy for many years,” their letter said. The broadcasters appeal follows a proposal sent in May to Mr. Geithner by a group of influential House members asking for a minority broadcaster support program, bridge funding, or government-backed loans.

(Ed note- this is a follow up to a story appearing in an earlier newsletter… it starts here and branches out. The network news divisions and the newspapers of the country have lost their objectivity and turned into nothing more than state-run entities. In greater and greater nubmers, people don’t trust them for news any longer. The less objective they become, the lower their ratings and numbers. Therefore, this bailout will be the payback for the positive press they’ve given and will be used to leverage against any urge they may have to become more objective).

The Two Types of Republicans Liberals Hate
by Daniel Greenfield at Canada Free Press
http://canadafreepres…

There are two types of Republicans that liberal Democrats hate above all else with an unreasoning venom that borders on madness…

The American Populist represents an American ideal, often Western in nature, and promotes independence, small government and an old fashioned self-centered Americanism. The Populist relies less on bureaucratic advice and more on common sense, gut instincts and thinking about issues from a new angle. The Populist is often not a professional politician, and has a background or hobbies that define him more than his political career does. Models include Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Sarah Palin. Liberals routinely denounce the populists as stupid, mentally incompetent hicks who can barely tie their shoes… At a cultural level, liberals react with the innate distaste of class warfare to populists, the way the Bourbons did to peasants presuming to tell them what to do. At the ideological level, the American Populist is coded as representing the classic American values of hard work, individualism and the American Way, that they have been doing their best to stamp out for generations, by replacing them with their own values of collectivism, tolerance and global collaboration. The Populist automatically subverts this process by reminding the American public of what being an American really means.

The second Republican type to trip Liberals haywire is the Government Organizer. The Organizer is often gruff, matter of fact and projects competence. He is not charismatic, in fact he’s often anti-charismatic, being unattractive and unappealing. A longtime career politician, he relentlessly and aggressively pursues goals that he believes will benefit the country, regardless of the obstacles. His competence however cannot compensate for his perceived unpleasantness, or ruthless attitudes. Worse yet to many liberals he represents a “bad father” figure who is ominous and threatening. Models include Richard Nixon, Dick Cheney and John McCain.

These two types not only comprise the two types of Republicans that draw obsessive liberal hate, but they also comprise the most visible Republican Presidents and Presidential candidates.
