Abortion

Not that it would have done any good, but…

Every step in the right direction,

is a step in the right direction.

… I jotted down as possibilities for posts one morning this week while listening to the radio. Yea, amazing how much the government throws at us, all at once. It’s quite literally impossible for one person to keep up. I didn’t get around to any of them due to a heavy workload, but that doesn’t mean the issues aren’t worthy of your attention or scrutiney.

NATION:

Isn’t it time we ceased all government funding of “art?”

Wikileaks – I call this a major distraction. I know, its big, but think of this, if they are using the latest leak as a distraction, something this huge, just what do they want to distract us from?

No one person has done more to jeopardize American lives and make the American people unsafe than President Obama. ~ Pamela Geller

Child Nutrition Billsupposedly defeated, I won’t believe it til I see the bloody stake. It lives! Adrienne has the humor.

Food Bill S510 – Are you ready for the FDA in your backyard garden? Big Brother’s itching to put his green thumb on your neck.

Gulf drilling ban extended to 7 years while foreign nations drill in same waters – further proof of Obama’s hatred for business and red states.

Abortion on military basesIs that really necessary?

DREAM ACT – I’m still for deporting all illegal immigrants and securing the border. However, here’s another sober take on the issue.

TEXAS:

New “Buzzed Driving” Bill, lowers the legal limit of alcohol to .05%. – Why not just close every beer joint, pub and bar and bring back prohibition? Which is what this bill would effectively do. These girls are definitely against it.

Houston – Cameras cameras cameras. First the Red Light Cameras and Houston City Hall’s refusal to honor the will of the people, now the city is set to install police surveillance cameras all over the city. Can you scream Big Brother loud or often enough?

The next featured blog has been a favorite of mine since before the Robot was a stray synapse in my tin-clad head. Like many of you, I admire Pundit & Pundette’s style, straight forward nature and spot-on commentary. To me, it reads less like a blog than a news site with a bit of a smirk. Perusing P & P, I feel like I’m perhaps sitting at an outdoor cafe, discussing the day’s events over coffee with some snarky friends.

An excerpt from “TIME columnist admits we were right about Obama”

Mark Halperin of TIME magazine can just barely make out the real Barack Obama from his house:

With the exception of core Obama Administration loyalists, most politically engaged elites have reached the same conclusions: the White House is in over its head, isolated, insular, arrogant and clueless about how to get along with or persuade members of Congress, the media, the business community or working-class voters… [snip]

Isolated, insular, arrogant, and clueless. Well, that’s a start. Let’s not forget narcissistic, thin-skinned, unscrupulous, polarizing, and socialist.

Whoa. Don’t hold back there, Jill. How do you really feel?

All kidding aside, I agree with her assessment one-thousand percent. I also happen to like the way she gets her point across. Like this morning’s post:

Are we talking about the President of the United States or Justin Bieber? I was going to ask whatever happened to the dignity of the office, but then I remembered Bill Clinton.

And I was going to ask if Bill Clinton was aware of his punching-bag status, but then I remembered he’s married to Hillary.

Wait, did I just steal an analogy method from Jill?

Yes I did.

Imitation is, after all, the highest form of flattery.

We can also be thankful that Pundette keeps people like Virginia Ironside front and center. Is Mzzz. Ironside the type of person who would presume to sit on the Obamacare health care panels and decide whether or not we get medical treatment? If you answered no, you should take a deeper look into Obama’s Cabinet appointments. This is what passes for compassion in those “educated” circles:

[Ironside]: ‘If a baby’s going to be born severely disabled or totally unwanted, surely an abortion is the act of a loving mother.’

[Pundette]: It’s a cold, cold arrogance which, after a look into the future, considers the following issues for others and decides on the death sentence:

Does your life have intrinsic value? No.
Because you may suffer for years, should you desire to continue living? No.
Is your death preferable to X amount of suffering, as perceived by me? Yes.
Can suffering have redeeming value for the sufferer? No.

And let’s not pretend that the advice columnist’s “good mother” doesn’t have a conflict of interest. Her own suffering, that ultimate evil in Ironside’s world, is surely part of the equation as she ponders the destruction of her child.

Jill then adds a “palate cleanser” and some further background on the “loving mother.” The entire article begs for your attention.

She can also spot a great quote when she sees one.

When it comes to school reform, I’m with John Derbyshire:

Here is my prescription for a reform of the nation’s education system. First, destroy all the schools. Cart away the rubble for landfill and sow the ground with salt. Abolish the federal Department of Education and all state equivalents. End all education funding from public sources.

Pundit and Pundette is a site that has proved it’s worth time and time again in the realm of analysis, commentary and aggregation of news from across the political spectrum. It’s written with a style that feels like home cooking and I love the smell of freshly brewed snark in the morning…

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to bookmark Pundit and Pundette.

Add P & P to your blogrolls, and visit P & P at least once a day. You’ll be glad you did.

Be sure to let them know a rusty tin man sent you.

UPDATE: One-Thousand Progressives, according to the PSN Letter to Obama Supporting Obamacare.

Our American society has never seen the level of corruption in evidence today. It’s as if some mind controlling parasites have infested and infiltrated every nook and cranny of our system. The deeper you go down the proverbial rabbit hole, the more tentacles you find. Across borders, oceans and economic systems it reaches to control your every movement and very existence. As an example, if you were to expound and expand on Obama, Pelosi and Reid’s new healthcare plan, they would wish to grant or deny even your right to exist, as evidenced by our federal government’s obsession with killing babies. Do any of you trust your government to the point of giving them control, Chairman Mao like, over the number of children you can have? Rest assured that a government that funds elective abortions of its citizens would jump at the chance to dictate your ability to procreate at all. That type of tyranny is one that would grant such rights by your political party affiliation or what amount of tribute you bring to their throne.

If you believe, as I do, that the Progressive/Socialist/Communist agenda is at its heart, an evil one, then you must also conclude that this movement must be stopped.

Enter the Progressive States Network. Ever heard of them?

The PSN is a network of Progressive organizations that share Obama’s goal of the “fundamental transformation of America.”

I’ve seen what that transformation looks like and I don’t like it.

How does it work?

Their plan is to introduce Progressive/Socialist legislation at the State and local levels in order to gain a foothold on those issues at the national level both in the media and in the federal legislature. In the process, they are grooming candidates for national office.

A primer:

Getting To Know Your Michigan Candidates

The Progressive States Network: What you need to know

Progressive States Network – Immigration

Progressive States Network: Distorting the Electoral Process?

The Progressive States Network: Undermining Liberty one State at a Time

The Progressive States Network: Exploiting the Crisis that Progressives Caused?

Progressive States Network: National Popular Vote

Popular Vote: By the Numbers

Lately, we bloggers have been focused on the national elections in our attempts to reclaim and restore our Constitutional Republic. The people who belong to the Progressive States Network are working against that goal at all levels.

Examples of the upwards activism the PSN pursues are their letters to Obama from our State legislators:

Supporting Federal Health Care Reform

State Legislators for Progressive Immigration Policy

Create Jobs, Give States Fiscal Relief

All three of these would sound innocuous to the normal Americans, but in reality, they are letters demanding that the Federal government become more involved in the States’ activities and our personal lives at a time when we need less Federal involvement in anything State or personal, with the exception of sealing the border.

From the “Jobs” letter:

…Accordingly, the federal government must take proactive steps to create jobs and enact further fiscal relief for state and local governments. This includes extending FMAP increases for Medicaid, providing additional support for education, boosting funding for infrastructure projects and public transportation investments, supporting the long-term unemployed to sustain them until they reenter the workforce, and providing direct financial assistance to state and local governments to perform the vital services needed to maintain growth in local communities across the nation…

Signing on to the “Jobs” letter from Texas are:

  • Rep. Garnet Coleman (TX-147) Co-chairman of the PSN Board of Directors. Garnet was quoted recently on the Marxist emag Political Affairs. Sadly, Rep. Coleman is unopposed.
  • Sen. Rodney Ellis (TX-13) Opponent:  Michael Mauldin
  • Rep. Jessica Farrar (TX-148) Opponent: Fernando Herrera
  • Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (TX-51) Opponent: Marilyn Jackson

Nowhere in that letter is any mention of tax cuts or pro-business incentives for job creation, unless you count their concern for the loss of jobs in government and social services.

Government has grown too large as it is! The people who would fight for more government and social programs over actual private enterprise and real economic growth must be ousted from office at every level of government, Federal, State and local. Failure to do so, is to leave a bit of cancer in the infected host.

Those wanting to increase government dependents have been drafting recruits while we worker bees have been busy paying for their campaign through taxes for years and recently, stimulus packages re-routed to ACORN type organizations. Obama type community organizers have been training Progressive recruits how to “help moderate members of Congress” by framing Progressive issues in “palatable” ways.

An example of from the Center for Progressive Leadership

Question: Why would I need to make an issue “palatable” if it will stand on its own merit?

Answer: Because it is a lie in need of sugar coating.

Progressives are Socialists are Communists and are by definition anti-American. It’s past time everyone was made aware of their existence and agenda.

I would encourage bloggers to research these letters and the people who signed them. Find their opponents and support them. Post them in lists by state on your blogs along with their opponents.

November is coming!

Socia.list

This weekend, I plan to create a new blog page similar to the Texas 11 that, beginning with Texas, will contain a list of the State Senators and Representatives who align themselves with the PSN, along with their opposing candidates if available.

The title of that page will be Socia.list.

Catchy, don’t you think?

If anyone would like to help with compiling that list, I wouldn’t argue.  Just send me a link or comment with your post’s url and after verifying, I’ll be happy to include it. BTW, Project Vote Smart is a valuable resource for finding that type of information.

UPDATE: My apologies to John Carey of  The Current for not giving him the proper credit for bringing this group to my attention.

Also, No Sheeples Here’s proprietor extraordinaire, Carol has created a video that echos the message in this post.

Today, I sent faxes to both of my Senators urging them to vote NAY on the appointment of Elena Kagan. I wrote of my opposition to her appointment at the end of June, and nothing has transpired to change my mind. In fact, I believe she has been, shall we say, less than forthcoming in her responses to Senate questioning.

The vote may be held as soon as tomorrow (Tuesday) even though one source I found hints at a delay. Now is not the time for us to delay, however. We must make our voices heard yet again.

Join me and many of my conservative brethren by sending faxes to your Senators urging them to vote against Kagan’s confirmation.

I used the Christian Coalition of America’s Fax Congress service, which cost $3.00 total.

More on Mizzzz Kagan’s radical, un-American views at Western Front America and NRO.
