Hey Mom

I hope you never need a pacemaker.  Predsident Obama says maybe you’d be better off taking a “pain killer” instead of having the surgery.

Even thought it’s probably a waste of my time, I contacted my senators earlier to voice my opposition to the proposed healthcare legislation.  Have you?

Two main bills are being rushed through Congress with the goal of combining them into a finished product by August. Under either, a new government bureaucracy will select health plans that it considers in your best interest, and you will have to enroll in one of these “qualified plans.” If you now get your plan through work, your employer has a five-year “grace period” to switch you into a qualified plan. If you buy your own insurance, you’ll have less time.

Don’t want it?  Too bad.  First you’ll be fined, then you’ll be “automatically enrolled in a randomly selected plan”. Really, go read it.

We The People Stimulus Package

The Second American Revolution

Thomas Paine’s  Common Sense

It is time to get back to our roots of personal responsibility and limited government.  Find a Tea Party being organized near you and add your voice to the tens of thousands of other Americans who have had enough.

New American Tea Party

America’s Tea Party

Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party

Tea to D.C.!

Tea Parties have already taken place across the country.  Kansas City has had a Tea Party protest every week for the last four weeks.   The movement itself and the number of people attending are growing fast, as witnessed by the Cincinatti Tea Party this past weekend..  More tea parties are being scheduled across the country between now and July 4th.

It is time.  It is time for “We The People” to take back our country.  It is our personal responsibility to protect and preserve the gift given us by our founding fathers.  No one is going to do it for us.

“If not now, when?  If not me, then who?”

Nancy Pelosi has hall monitors out in force.  On August 2, under a new, April 17 hallway policy issued by Pelosi, they recently censored a poster tribute to fallen Marines from Camp LeJeune that Rep. Walter Jones (R) from North Carolina had displayed outside his office in the Capitol Building (via Deebow @ B5).    More here, via Hot Air Headlines.

The Republican congressman now opposes the War in Iraq after initially supporting it. He has even called for President Bush to apologize for the war. It seems that it is not political opposition to his views of the war that spurned Speaker Nancy Pelosi D-CA to order the removal of the poster. They were on the same ideological team in that regard. So what was it about the poster that bugged the Speaker?
Mr. Fein, when reached for further comment explained that in the weeks before this incident, the Speaker had complained about the poster which rested on an easel. In response the congressman had removed it from the easel and hung it on the wall so it would not obstruct hallway traffic. Still the Speaker persisted and had it removed from the wall. Some observers consider that a direct affront to service members and veterans stemming from at best a callousness towards the intent of the placard, to recognize those who died for our country.

It’s not just about the poster though.  Democrats in the House have also been accused of attempting to limit the free of speech of our elected Representatives.  Do Americans really want another term for Speaker Pelosi?

The Democrats left for vacation and turned out the lights.  But, 40 Republican Congressman have stayed and are on the floor.  Gateway Pundit says someone needs to bring them candles.   Heh.  Michelle Malkin reports there’s been a call from the Republican Study Committee for President Bush to convene a special session on gas prices.  She also has a link to Rep. John Culberson’s Live Twitter updates on what’s happening, plus more.  This is very interesting.

UPDATE @ 2:42 pm EST:  Be sure to check out the coverage and updates on this at Politico’s The Crypt.  Seems Democrats are attempting to keep the press from covering what’s happening.  Their coverage is a MUST READ!
