Federal Food Police Hunting Tony the Tiger

The federal government is out of control.  The Constitution, in case you didn’t already know, was written to limit the power and authority of the federal government.  The federal government rarely pays heed to the Constitution anymore unless they can find a twisted way to make it limit the liberties of the citizens of America.

The federal government is involved in auto manufacturing, has taken over the health care industry with an eye to destroying private insurance companies, and has taken over the student loan industry.  It has passed a law banning incandescent light bulbs, and now the federal government wants to kill Tony the Tiger unless the makers of Frosted Flakes change the recipe.

See the full story here.

You know.  I keep looking through the Constitution, and I just don’t see where the federal government has in its 18 authorized duties to poke its nose into manufacturing automobiles, producing food, loaning money, buying mortgages, etc.  The citizens of the U.S.A. are insane if they don’t stand up against unconstitutional laws.   Get loud and protest if necessary.  Your senators and representative should know your name because you contact them often to tell them to vote against this or that unconstitutional bill.

The federal government has its place, its duties.  It has far exceeded the authority granted it in the Constitution.  Subsidiarity.  Remember that word.  States and individuals have most of the authority and rights in the Constitution.  Let’s let states govern their citizens.  Let’s restrain the federal government as our Founders intended.  They were well aware of the consequences of having an unrestrained government.  It leads quickly to tyranny.

Neutral, it is not!

Read this Wall Street Journal article.  It is called The Net Neutrality Coup, and it describes exactly how the FCC passed the net neutrality policy passed.  It is amazing how incestuous (and inbred) the researchers, pollsters, and policy makers are.  Contact your congressman and senators today, in fact now, to voice your opposition to net neutrality.  Let’s rein in the FCC and all other federal agencies.

(I mean, really.  Should the USDA be raiding farm houses with assault rifles because the farmer sells raw milk?  It happened!  Federal agencies are out of control.)

Seems the DREAM Act didn’t fail just yet

Did the DREAM Act really fail?  Read the above link for text from the bill that seems to come from the DREAM Act.  This last Congress has been the sneakiest ever.  Can’t trust ’em for a second.

DREAM Act language is in H.R. 5281 aka Removal Clarification Act of 2010.

G. Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

The Providence Gazette  and Country Journal

Saturday, October 17, 1789.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

G. Washington.

November 18, 2008 – Abortion: Today’s Slavery

I wrote this in 2008 and believe it to be as valid now as it was then.

Abortion: Today’s Slavery

As slavery was intrinsically evil in its day, so is abortion today. Both are degrading, devalue human worth, and are contrary to the dignity of man. In our Declaration of Independence, the Founding Fathers acknowledged the inalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Although there were people who were against slavery at the time our Constitution was written, there were not enough of them to prohibit slavery at that time. The best they could do was to establish that, for the determination of the number of representatives a state would have in Congress, slaves would count only as three-fifths of free persons. In this way, the power that slave states would hold in Congress would be reduced. (Many think that counting a slave as three-fifths of a whole person demonstrates that the Founders of our nation were racist at best. It was, in fact, a compromise designed to limit Congressional power of slave states.)

Slavery, intrinsic evil that it is, was abolished in due time. One of the greatest abolitionists who spoke out against slavery was John Quincy Adams. After his presidency, he ran for Congress and was elected. Under the First Amendment, citizens can petition the government for a redress of grievances. Adams would present hundreds of these petitions against slavery in Congress. Despite a gag rule Congress passed as a way to silence him, he continued his duty. Adams continued to voice his opposition to slavery daily, and a growing number of people became convinced that slavery was immoral and violated civil rights. A young, freshman congressman befriended the crotchety, old Adams, who took him under his wing. This congressman ended up losing his seat and lost subsequent bids for the Senate, also. It was not until after the election of President Abraham Lincoln, the former young Congressman, that slaves were finally able to enjoy the right of liberty as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence. Unfortunately, John Quincy Adams didn’t live to see the fruit of his labors.

Unbelievably, 110 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, the Supreme Court decided in Roe v. Wade that a woman may take the life of her offspring. This decision is blatantly contrary to our Declaration of Independence in which the Founding Fathers stated we have the right, given by our Creator, to life. Since the right is given to us by our Creator, and not by the government, the government cannot take that right away. Yet, that did, indeed, happen. According to the government, the children of America have no right to live. Abortions are performed right up to the fourth trimester. Yes, some children are born and left to die or are killed (infanticide). If that seems unconscionable to you, your natural instincts are right. So we end one abomination (slavery) and begin another (abortion) that has taken around 50,000,000 lives so far.

Abortion is degrading to women. Many, if not most, times a woman is not even fully informed about the procedure, the dangers, the pain, and the guilt and depression she may suffer after the abortion or options such as adoption. Abortionists do not care. They actively fight laws that require them to fully inform the woman. It is incredibly disrespectful of the abortionist to keep the woman in the dark about what he is about to do to her.

I have listened to women tell me about their abortion experiences. One woman said that she was having second thoughts after entering the procedure room. She had had an abortion once before, and upon entering the room, the horrible memories flooded back: the doctor who didn’t even look at her, the excruciating pain, the sound of the machine as it sucked her baby from her womb. She wanted to leave, but the doctor told her that she was there already, she might as well have the abortion. She got on the table but still wanted to leave. The machine started, and she sat up saying she really wanted to go. The nurse pushed her back down and told her that she’s there, she may as well go through with it. She did. It was just as painful as the first time, and the guilt and mental anguish returned, too. This example shows that abortionists care only for their income. If she had left, the abortionist would have lost money.

Abortion devalues human life. Slaves were oppressed, not given their freedom. With abortion, babies are not even allowed to be born. So one can surmise that a baby’s life is worthless. Well, if a child has no value, what about an adult? At what stage is a person accorded some value? Most Down’s Syndrome babies are aborted. How many healthy children are put to death because the doctor suggested there may be something wrong with them? There have been many cases where a doctor was wrong and the child was born 100% healthy. Even if the baby does have a birth defect, is the child to be loved less? Hated? Scorned? Or killed to put the parents out of their misery? Every person has a right to live.

Abortion is contrary to the dignity of man. Abortion procedures are barbaric. How they can be legal is incomprehensible. Procedures include:

  • suctioning that pulls the fetus (baby) apart and out of the woman
  • pulling fetal (baby) parts out with forceps and crushing the skull to ease removal
  • grabbing a leg with forceps, delivering baby up to the head then jabbing scissors in the base of the skull, spreading them, and suctioning the brain out, which collapses the skull, then removing the baby (partial birth abortion)
  • using saline solution to kill the baby by salt poisoning
  • giving a potassium chloride injection to stop the baby’s heart in case it may survive the abortion and be born alive.

Dismembering a fetus (small baby) and sucking it out of the womb is sickening. There is no dignity for the woman or for the baby in an abortion. In no case is abortion acceptable. No one has a right to kill, especially to kill tiny little babies that depend on us.

Slaves were kidnapped, sold, and beaten. Aborted babies are suctioned or pulled apart, ripped from the womb, and discarded. There is no value or dignity in either situation. Fortunately, slavery was ended long ago. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court decided murder by abortion was acceptable only 35 years ago.

Abortion is as intrinsically evil and immoral as slavery is. Abortion is not a right as some try to claim. Owning slaves was also false right. Our Creator, the recognized source of our rights, did not give mothers the right to kill their children. In fact, we are told, not only in the Ten Commandments but also in the laws of each state, not to kill. Abortion is killing. How our Creator must weep every time a woman takes the life of her child—not just for the child, but also for the woman who committed this injustice.

It took a while for the majority of the people to realize how unacceptable slavery was. People will someday realize how unacceptable abortion is. But during this time, do not remain idle. Tell people, your friends and family, people you meet in the street, how abortion procedures are barbaric and sickening, and completely against the right to life specified in our Declaration of Independence. Write letters to the editor. More importantly, write your senators and congressmen. Write the president. Ask them why babies don’t have the right to life as enunciated in the Declaration of Independence. Get busy in the right-to-life movement (www.40daysforlife.com). Be for children what John Quincy Adams was for slaves—a voice, an unrelenting advocate. Speak on their behalf because the only voice they have is yours. Adams believed it was his duty to speak everyday against slavery. Be as committed as he was. Make it your duty to speak out against abortion. You may not see it end in your lifetime, but plant the seeds. Help. Slavery was the accepted scandal in its day. Abortion is the accepted scandal of today.

“I sincerely pray that all the members of the human family may, in the time prescribed by the Father of us all, find themselves securely established in the enjoyment of life, liberty, and happiness.” —Thomas Jefferson, 1807

Cast the right vote

Election day is around the corner.

Vote for candidates who respect life. If they don’t respect life, they don’t respect you.

In this country we have the “right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” in that order!  Murder is against the law.  Abortion is premeditated prenatal murder.  No woman has a license to kill her own offspring.  I am appalled that it is legal.  If you don’t know what the abortion procedures are, find out.  Look it up and LOOK AT IT.  Abortion will turn your stomach.  It will sicken you.  Abortion is barbaric!  It is not a human right.  The child has a right to live!  Those who support abortion or infanticide should never be voted into office.  Economy, war…no other issue is as important as life itself.  For without life, there is no other issue.

For those of you who have been opposed to the war on terror, think of this. The total number of troops killed in Iraq over the course of the war is about the same as how many children are aborted every day in America. So if it’s the death that appalls you, redirect your attention and efforts to the pro-life movement.

Vote for candidates who respect marriage. Marriage isn’t a simple contract to obtain a bundle of benefits.  It is the foundation of family and, therefore, society.  It was instituted by God, not by government; therefore, government has no authority to change it.  Marriage has never, since the beginning of time, been between homosexual couples.  If you have the chance to vote for real marriage, vote for it.  Don’t let peer pressure or society pressure you to vote against real marriage and the family.

Do not worry about this world.  Think of the next.  Will your vote offend God?  Think of your eternal soul.  Vote according to God’s will.  Vote as if Jesus is looking over your shoulder.   If you do, and you feel a little guilty about a vote you are about to make, it must be the wrong vote.  Vote on behalf of Jesus.  Vote on behalf of babies in the womb.  Vote on behalf of society at large by protecting marriage from an indecent redefinition.

Vote for good, Christian people.  A person’s character and morals matter more than his policies.  A decent man will have decent policies.  A bad man will sell his office, his votes, and his country for his own gain.

Vote in favor of life and real marriage.

Reagan’s Debt is Obama’s Accounting Error

According to this article,

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/72404

Obama has sent us–you, me, our entire country–deeper into debt than Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams, Jackson, Van Buren, Harrison, Tyler, Polk, Taylor, Fillmore, Pierce, Buchanan, Lincoln, Johnson, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland, Harrison, Cleveland, McKinley, Roosevelt, Taft, Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan COMBINED!

Reagan’s political opponents loved to point out how much he increased the debt.  Seems Reagan’s total 8 year debt would only be an accounting error in Obama’s regime.

“By contrast, President Reagan was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 1981 and left office eight years later on Jan. 20, 1989.  At the end of fiscal 1980, four months before Reagan was inaugurated, the federal debt held by the public was $711.9 billion, according to CBO.  At the end of fiscal 1989, eight months after Reagan left office, the federal debt held by the public was $2.1907 trillion.  That means that in the nine-fiscal-year period of 1980-89–which included all of Reagan’s eight years in office–the federal debt held by the public increased $1.4788 trillion.  That is in excess of a trillion dollars less than the $2.5260 increase in the debt held by the public during Obama’s first 19 months.”

I cannot tell you how much I desire this country become the constitutional republic it once was.  Right now, nobody–NOBODY–in the federal government adheres to the oath they take when elected.  Nobody has any qualms about taking money from certain people to give it to other people–mostly as a payoff to those who vote for them.  Nobody see this as stealing.   Nobody seems to thing this is wrong and immoral.  Well, I do!
