RINO’s

Today, in the robot’s mail box I found the latest installment of

The Peter Morrison Report

Summary of this week’s report:

Conservative stalwart Leo Berman has officially declared that he’s
seeking the office of Speaker of the House, currently held by Joe
Straus. Straus is a RINO who supports abortion and gambling,
campaigns for liberal Democrats, and uses his power to block
important conservative legislation. Replacing Straus with Rep.
Berman would be a huge victory for conservative Texans, and we need
to support Leo Berman in his bid for the Speaker’s job.

Take action:

Please fax the Republican members of the Texas House and urge them
to vote for Leo Berman for Speaker of the House.

Also, please call, write or fax the member of the Texas House from
your district and urge them to vote for Leo Berman for Speaker of
the House. If you need to look up their contact information, you
can do so here:

Unlike Congressmen, it’s possible to actually get your state
representative on the phone. This is by far the most important
step to take, as your rep will be naturally cautious to oppose the
incumbent speaker because of his power to determine the fate of
committee assignments and legislation. Only constituent pressure
will help them muster the courage to act.

Stolen straight from Maggie @ Maggie’s Notebook & Stop the ACLU

Conscientiously Conservative came up with a great idea. Each Friday she is donating $10 to a worthy conservative candidate now up to the November election. Several bloggers have joined the effort. Note that, if $10 is too much, do less, or do more if you can. The point is to get it on our calendars and in our minds – rather than putting it off for another time. Unfortunately, it takes money to win an election today, and Democrats are flush, thanks to George Soros and MoveOn.org and all the ACORNs out there.

Ten Buck Friday Blogs

Maggie’s Notebook has joined, and today donated to Sharron Angle (Senate Nevada) and Christine O’Donnell (Senate – Delaware). I haven’t donated to the GOP for several years now, and will not do so. My money goes to individuals.

Readers are welcome to participate. If you read about Ten Buck Fridays or RINO Killers here first, just leave your name in comments and I’ll have a list of participants each week.

See details below with a series of comments from other bloggers involved in Ten Buck Fridays and RINO Killer Alert. RightKlik will have a new poll beginning this Sunday, June 20th. You can vote in the poll, and donate to the poll winner, or to whomever you wish. The new poll winner will be revealed next Friday, June 25th, 2009.

Conscientiously Conservative – the birth mother of Ten Buck Fridays:

Many of us get paid on Fridays… if we bring a sack lunch a couple of times a week to work, right there is an extra tenner. What if conservatives donated $10 each and every week up through November to viable candidates and/or PAC’s that are promoting a conservative agenda? If you can’t afford every week, what about twice a month? Or once a month? Conservatives need to put their money where their mouth is. Commit to Ten Buck Fridays… it WILL make a difference come November!

RightKlik:

Ten Buck Fridays is a great idea, and I think it’s one that should really catch on.

I’d like to join with conservative bloggers and conservatives on twitter to focus attention on a different candidate each week. Each week, deserving candidates could be nominated. Polling through the next several days could determine the crowd favorite…and on Friday, a good conservative would be hit with a grassroots moneybomb!

Imagine what a thousand grassroots conservatives could accomplish in unison. Ten thousand dollars a week would grab a lot of attention and could help some candidates who really need it.

Who will join us?

This week: Sharon Angle. Next week, you decide.

Readers, if you want to join RightKlik’s efforts to join-up with other bloggers and readers to send a “money-bomb” each Friday to the person winning the RightKlik poll, leave your nomination in comments. The next poll begins on Sunday at RightKlik. See the poll ended on Friday June 18th here.Another idea moving through the blogs is the, RINO Killer Alert, a major effort to move Delaware’s Christine O’Donnell into the Senate, and more specifically into Joe Biden’s senate seat. Her opponent is U.S. Representative Mike Castle, a House RINO (Republican In Name Only) – and here’s something for you to remember: Castle, a Republican, voted for ObamaKare. Revealing the GOP’s bad judgement – again – The National Republican Senatorial Committee supports him, and by doing so sanctions Castle’s vote.  Bob at The Camp of Saints and Stacy at the Other McCain Read it at The Camp of Saints and The Other McCain.

I noticed that O’Donnell was on the Ten Buck Fridays poll, as well. I’m sure she will be the recipient of Ten Buck Fridays donations soon.

The idea is to make the donations on line, directly to the candidate. Please note you are making the donation through Ten Buck Fridays. The donations I made today to O’Donnell and Angle used the same payment form. In the box for “Occupation” I wrote “Donated through Ten Buck Friday Blog and RINO Killer Alert.

UPDATE: The latest poll is up. You’ll find it in the upper right sidebar.

There was a convergence of sorts for me today. Whilst twittering away for #FF (Follow Fridays) I noticed on of my new tweeps, Right Klik was touting a new idea called Ten Buck Fridays which was actually the brain child of Conscientiously Conservative who writes:

Ten Buck Fridays started today for me. I donated $10 to Teresa Collett’s campaign for 4th Congressional District in Minnesota. Many of us get paid on Fridays… if we bring a sack lunch a couple of times a week to work, right there is an extra tenner. What if conservatives donated $10 each and every week up through November to viable candidates and/or PAC’s that are promoting a conservative agenda? If you can’t afford every week, what about twice a month? Or once a month? Conservatives need to put their money where their mouth is. Commit to Ten Buck Fridays… it WILL make a difference come November!

What a great idea! Right Klik modified the idea a bit (I think) by adding a nomination factor, which also has some merit. The main point being that it’s only ten bucks a week or two for a good cause. For THE greatest cause of our lives, if you ask me, which you didn’t but hey, I’m doing the typing here. You’ll get your turn in the comment section. Settle down over there.

The convergence happened when I got my subscription email from Bob Belvedere’s site (You do subscribe to TCOTS don’t you?) announcing that he,  Stacy McCain and a host of other bloggers are jumping on a RINO Killer’s Grassroots Money Bomb. Christina O’Donnell’s supporters are asking for some help over there, so I’ll be donating to that campaign shortly.

The point is, however you chose to participate, whatever level of financial assistance you can afford, now is the time to commit. We can not afford to slack now. We must put our money where our mouths are and support conservative candidates. What we cannot afford to do is allow the Republican machine to select those RINO’s as our only choices. As far as I am concerned, a RINO is no more use to us than a Progressive Democrat if we expect to affect real change in Washington.

I can’t remember where I saw it or heard it but this is the truth: You can’t change government without changing the people in government.

Get involved. Campaigns cost money.

Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that Christina O’Donnell is kid-of hot. But then, conservative wimmin will always have the edge with this robo-love machine.

UPDATE: Right Klik offers another idea in the comments:

Anyone who likes the “Ten Buck Fridays” idea, please consider labeling your online donation with “Ten Buck Fridays” in one of the optional fields.

Just full of ideas, this Right Klik.

Hey, have you ever cleaned an oil spill? Just wonderin’ cause, you know, someone we’re both acquainted with desperately needs a clue.

I can’t believe my tin-clad ears. When I hear those who I once considered hardened republicans come out softening the base with statements that mean in effect “it’s a lost cause”, my stomach churns.

I heard Fred Thompson on Hannity yesterday in effect surrendering the Kagan nomination as a given, my radio caught a tongue lashing.

Poor radio. It’s not your fault.

It’s the fault of wishy washy conservatives who are scared to pick a fight. What they don’t understand is that we are still pissed about Health Care, bailouts, take-overs and our loss of freedoms and money, in effect EVERYTHING this regime is doing and wishes to do. I have one word for you republicans and conservatives.

OBSTRUCTION

Oppose everything Obama, Pelosi and Reid want to do. At the very least make it harder to get these things accomplished. That is what we expect you to do. If you bend over and take it, we are paying attention and you will be ousted with the rest of the mongrels when the time comes.

That’s all for now, If I go on, this blog will lose its PG-13 rating.

UPDATE: Wyblog has a fine example of why my head is about to assplode.

UPDATE II: I wrote earlier that the wishy washy conservatives are scared to pick a fight. I was wrong. They aren’t scared to pick a fight. What I should have written is they are afraid to fight at all, because we are in a fight already and although we didn’t start it, we should damn well be willing to finish it or to go down swinging.

Here is my point. The progressives have infiltrated the ranks of all of the parties and should be ousted from every nook and cranny of government, if that means that all we can do for now is to not allow another fox in the hen house, then that is what I expect them to do! And if, in the mean time, you show yourself to be a RINO, you just put a target on your back as well.

There, hopefully I made it through that without too many expletives.

Now I’m off to draw Mohammed. Got to get ready for Thursday.
