My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

This is a Conservative Outrage!

I've been relatively quite about the alleged budget cuts that were being debated for the past few weeks in Congress now,  it is time to speak out. This is truly a Conservative Outrage!  The word capitulate means:
ca·pit·u·late[kuh-pich-uh-leyt] Show IPA
–verb (used without object), -lat·ed, -
1.
to surrender unconditionally or on stipulated terms.
2.
to give up resistance: He finally capitulated and agreed to do the job my way
(Compliments of Dictionary.Com

That is exactly what John Boehner and the majority of  Republicans did on Friday night.  Surrendered and gave up!  Many of those in the House of Representatives were elected on the mantra of cutting the budget!  They were not elected on cutting one tenth of one percent of the budget!  It is unfortunate for America and our children and grandchildren many of the old school members of congress and some of the newly elected members of congress didn't seems to get the message of the 2010 elections.  When the American public says "cut spending" and you say you will, you will get their support.  When you get elected and don't "cut spending" you will get their boot.  This means you will be a one term Congressman or Congresswoman.  For those of you who don't remember what happens to someone who says one thing and does another, "read my lips no new taxes"!  One term President, George Herbert Walker said that and he was, a one term President.
“The deal that was reached Friday night is a disappointment for millions of Americans who expected $100 billion in cuts, and who wanted to make sure their tax dollars stopped flowing to the nation’s largest abortion provider, (Planned Parenthood) and who wanted us to defund ObamaCare,” Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) said in a statement.
The first sham of this "I'll scratch your back you scratch mine" is that anything was accomplished.  According to Neil Cavuto at FOX NEWS and his staff there are 13 steps that must be taken, in order, for this pathetic facade to take place. The reported 72 hour posting of new bills has been shortened to three days.  Accordingly this sham of a bill could be posted at 2359 hours on Tuesday night and voted on at 0001 Thursday.  That's just the beginning. It seems to me that Congress is doing a lot of their work late at night, or under the cover of darkness.
Obama signs another stopgap budget bill  

By Sandhya Somashekhar and Paul Kane, Saturday, April 9, 1:37 PM

President Obama signed into law on Saturday a provision that will keep the federal government running through most of next week — long enough for congressional leaders to put the finishing touches on a budget compromise that will keep the federal government funded for the remainder of the fiscal year. Clik here article
The key words in this article are "long enough".  This is no more than another CR, aka, Continuing Resolution. How many is it now, three or four in the past months, I actually have lost track. From Real Clear Politics,
"Because of the need to put the compromise into legislative form, Congressional leaders said the House and Senate would vote overnight to pass a stopgap measure financing the government through Thursday to prevent any break in the flow of federal dollars. The actual budget compromise would be considered sometime next week."*
Further capitulation of the Leadership of the Republican party is echoed in this statement from Real Clear Politics, " Although both sides compromised, Republicans were able to force significant spending concessions from Democrats in exchange for putting to rest some of the vexing social policy fights that had held up the agreement."* What's another word or words for compromise, Capitulate, give up and give in! Finally, one last snippet from Real Clear Politics,"In the closed-door Republican session, according to people present in the room, Mr. Boehner described the plan as the best deal he could wring from Democrats..." *

I am so sick and tired of hearing about shutting down the government I am about to upchuck  The soldiers will get paid and any fool of a Congressman/woman who would vote against that would be committing political sewercide.  That is exactly where this piece of crap belongs, in the sewer!  I have had the opportunity to sit and talk with many an old soldier and quite a few young ones.  You can sleep well tonight because soldiers, unlike politicians, do their job regardless of pay.  They do it for a cause, Freedom, Honor, Duty and Faith that living in the greatest country on Earth is worth putting your life on the line.  God Bless these young and older soldiers for their service, regardless of the almighty dollar!


It took me a few minutes to recall this little tidbit of information I am forwarding to Speaker Boehner however, I feel since he has been so, so busy with Harry, the hunchback, Reid it may have slipped his mind.  Since he seems to think Billion is a small number then he certainly wouldn't and shouldn't mind taking a small piece of change from Brazil and giving it back to the hard working Americans here in the  United States.  I am referring to the 2 Billion President Obama has promise to give to Brazil to drill for oil.   The Wall Street Journal of August 9,2009 reports Brazil is getting 2 Billion US dollars to drill for oil and it's not even in US waters.  Thank you very much Brazil,  I'll take my money back and give it to American drillers instead. Now there is another 2 Billion you can cut and make the sham $40 to $41 Billion.  For the complete article clik here.


With a Federal budget nearing 15 Trillion American dollars and the country borrowing more money every day to just pay the interest to China and other countries don't you think $38 or $39 Billion of the promise $100 Billion, is just absolutely ridiculous!  It is my hope that every newly elected member who considers him/herself a Tea Party Congressman/woman will vote against this paltry and insulting spending cut.

I plan to make it know to my Congressman, will you!

Pops, this is what I have been pissing and moaning about for years. The GOP ALWAYS compromises with the left, just to win a very little, while the left gives up very little so that in the end, the left ends up winning every thing they wanted. Then those on the right go and sulk in a corner wondering W.T.F. just happened.

As for calling, emailing, writing or faxing my Congressman, screw that, I gave up doing that a long time ago because I never got any where, just a form letter thanking me for my concern. BIG HAIRY DEAL!

I just wish that those on the right had as big a set of gonads as the liberals do.

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
