TEA Party

Proudly swiped from Obi’s Sister, who adds: “Go on, make it viral.”

I don’t argue with the Jedi Princess.

The new TBF poll is up in the sidebar. I would encourage everyone to research and vote for their favorite candidate. I’ve already cast my vote for Stephen Broden who, as I pointed out in the previous post is running against Eddie Bernice Johnson in TX 30. Stephen Broden is running on a platform of strong Constitutional principles and understands where Obama and the Progressives/ Liberals in Congress would like to take the country.

Right Klik has posted a list of all of the candidates with corresponding links and info for your enjoyment and edification. Please choose your favorites and make donations to these worthy Conservatives.

Here is a portion of a campaign speech from Pastor Broden on our duty to the Republic as citizens.

I must say, I really like this guy.

The TBF poll in a nutshell: This is a poll designed to promote rising conservative stars. At the end of the week, the winner will be promoted by a network of over 80 conservative blogs and will receive a flurry of contributions from patriots across the country.

and those victims would be:

Jobs, in Port Arthur, Texas.

According to a report in the Houston Chronicle, Obama’s EPA has decided:

A proposed pipeline that would ferry Canadian crude oil to Texas refineries has run afoul of the recharged federal push to protect minorities and the poor from an overburden of pollution.

More like protecting them from the overburden of a job.

As noted in the same article, Port Arthur has one of the highest unemployment rates in Texas despite the dense allotment of refineries and chemical plants located in the area.

As to the EPA decision I have to speculate the Port Arthur City Council must not have been “consulted” when the powers that be made their decision. Then again, maybe they were, those council members might have asked for a little too many carbon credits or petroleum perks for the regime’s sensibilities. Again, I’m just speculating here though. I’m sure the EPA and the city truly have the *cough* best *hack* interest *barf* of all those minority residents at heart.

I can see how not being able to feed your family without a government handout is much better than earning a decent wage and providing for your own. A sense of pride and self worth is always a negative thing when compared to the usefulness of a dependent, especially when attempting to sell some new government run entitlement.

Port Arthur and Jefferson County in general have been a Democrat stronghold in Texas for years. Why the Obama regime would chose to punish a town with a large minority population just because of their race is beyond the computing ability of this robot. It surely can’t be because of their voting record.

I think we are about to see first-hand how the term “Environmental Justice” will become another form of discrimination, just another package with a different name.

I also think it’s fair to point out that as much as Obama and his cronies point the racial finger at the TEA Party with no evidence to back up their accusations, this is a true case of admitted discrimination against his own race. Oh, but wait, maybe it’s his white half that he will attempt to blame this one on.

Then again, Socialism knows no race except in the best ways to be derisive and divisive to stir the petty differences as this president does. To share the wealth in this man’s case means to spread the misery. It’s truly a shame that it’s so easy to do with a complicit Congress.

This week marks the first time that a candidate I nominated did not win the TBF poll, but I’m not upset about it. John Faulk made a great showing and I’m glad to see the many Faulk supporters out there who wish to dethrone Queen Sheila J. Lee.

I will, as promised, be donating to both of these worthy campaigns.

Mister Faulk also had a bit of fun with the straw poll, showing what a true gentleman he is. For the details on that and the info on the winner, Patricia Sullivan, I surrender the virtual podium to my worthy colleague, Right Klik:

For much of this week, I was wondering what we would do if our TBF poll ended with a tie. Patricia Sullivan and John Faulk were literally deadlocked almost every time I peeked at the poll results.
Making it even more interesting, Sullivan and Faulk made an intriguing deal. Now I’m looking forward to seeing Mr. Faulk in one of Patricia’s tee shirts!
Sullivan and Faulk both worked very hard for your vote, and I want to thank both of them for their good-natured rivalry. I wish them both the best of luck in their quest to unseat two of the most vile leftists in Congress.
In the final hours of this week’s poll, Patrica Sullivan pulled ahead for the victory, so now we focus our attention on her. If Sullivan wins the primary election on August 24, she will go on to face the loathsome Alan Grayson in November. If Sullivan is to succeed, she will certainly need your love, support, and appreciation, but she will also need some cold hard cash.
“But RightKlik,” you exclaim, “I don’t live in Sullivan’s district, and I’m not really keen on this idea of giving up a portion of my walkin’ around money for conservative candidates.” Well, Maggie has a few words for you.
Please give generously to Patricia Sullivan so she can go on with her noble work. I want to hear about some big numbers from Patricia’s people next week!

More updates

Over the past eleven months, a recurring theme of mine has been to ruminate on the perils of big government and what we can do to combat the over reaching arm of federal encroachments on our liberty and freedom. Since some of you are new to the blog, and since I transferred quite a few of those essays from the old site yesterday, I thought I would take the opportunity to point you to the “Prime” tab which will hold links to those essays for your reference.

As an introduction, in reverse order of appearance, here are ten essays on

The Perils of Big Government


Note also that within the “Prime” tab are what I consider to be some of the best writing by other bloggers I’ve run across in my travels. I don’t always have time or think of bookmarking a post so the list is a bit short for now. Most of my time online lately is focused on defeating the Godzilla of a government we’ve been growing, so if your wondrous work is absent, please take no offense at the omission, it may be that I simply haven’t read that particular work or wasn’t in a situation where I was able to make a note. Either way, the fault I’m sure, lies with me.

In addition to the random readings titled “From Other Blogs,” my friends at The Resistance have been very busy assembling valuable information for us to use and peruse. Those links will be posted on “Prime” also as they come available. I will try to make a note of when I make an addition to the “Prime” tab here on the front page but do check out that page from time to time as I may have forgotten to make note. They don’t call me “Mind-Numbed” for nothing.

Van Irion wins TBF poll!

Woo Hoo! My nominee won!

Not to gloat or anything. The other candidates are all very deserving, I’m sure. It’s just that, as Ruby Slippers says:

Anyone willing to clean the manure out of the Capitol and bring a lawsuit against ObamaCare has my support.

Right-on Ruby, Right-on!

As usual, RightKlik has an excellent article explaining Mr. Irion’s political positions and a great video of Van on Glenn Beck.

You know, now that I look, I see that I have yet to add RightKlik to my blogroll. How in the world could I let that slip by? Sorry about that omission RK, I’ll fix that error shortly. It will make a future installment of my Robo-Love Experiment in linking a bit more difficult fun and interesting, but I’m not one to back away from a challenge. Now let’s see, how to work “RightKlik” into a story line… Hmmmm.

Check you guys later. I’m off to make a donation and do a little blogrolling.

Cheers!

We were speaking of lawsuits against ObamaCare, weren’t we?

Well, I was.

Right about the time I had a good drunken rant going I get news of  Van Irion, a Constitutionalist from Tennessee who has actually begun work on a Class Action Lawsuit against ObamaCare.

From the FAQ:

Q. What is the goal of the lawsuit?

A. The goal is to reverse the incorrect interpretation by the Supreme Court of the Commerce clause that allows Congress to regulate essentially every American enterprise. This will restore the 10th Amendment and restrain Congress. Without reversing this precedent, Congress will continue to believe they have the right to regulate our daily lives and will continue to produce onerous bills that do so.

I’ve signed on and do encourage every person of sanity to do the same. I might even encourage some of you insane types to sign up also. Obama’s version of your “treatment” might not be what you wish it to be.

Van Irion is running for the Republican Primary in Tennessee’s 3rd District. The vote is scheduled for August 5th.

I like what I just saw so I’m sharing it with you. Wish I was in Tennessee to vote for him. If you know someone who should see this, please pass it on.

Both of you who read this blog on a regular basis Anna Little for Congress sign Texas 3know that I’m a big Little fan. Jersey girl is alright with this robotic writer, so I’m extremely pleased to announce that this weeks Ten Buck Fridays vote has been tallied and Anna Little has emerged victorious.

Now head over to Anna’s site and donate what you feel you can afford. Anna is facing a tough incumbent in Frank Pallone and her campaign can use every dollar.

RightKlik has a nice post detailing the Anna Little victory and give suggestions on another worthy candidate if you are feeling extra generous.

Super-Blogger, Nice Deb has picked up the TBF torch and is running with us, as is StopTheACLU, Maggie’s Notebook, WorldDailyNews, Hack Wilson, The Conservative Lady Polemicon and many many others.

I’m swamped with work today so, this is short and sweet. Go give Anna Little some money!

Ciao.

Steve over at Motor City Times has a new post that hit on something I’ve been pondering for quite a while. If most people can agree that big corporations and big unions are wielding too much clout with our politicians, then why in the world do we keep feeding the monster? Shut off the freaking food supply!

Corporations and unions should be cut out of campaign contributions altogether! Campaigns should be funded by contributions from the US Citizen only. And don’t give me any of that “it’s too expensive to run a campaign” garbage. The politicians made the rules. They can revise them so that it is less conducive to corruption.

I know, now I’m going to hear what a naive and unrealistic proposition that is. Fine. I’m naive. I’ll have you know that that is one of my most endearing qualities. Naive is one of the best things you can be sometimes. It helps the creative process to look at something with a childlike curiosity and wonder.

What I’m wondering right now is why we keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. That, according to Einstein if I remember correctly, is the definition of insanity.

Next subject.

I’ve seen an idea I floated a while back gaining some traction of late. This is encouraging. The idea is to REPEAL THE SEVENTEENTH AMENDMENT. Hear! Hear!

Wait, let me go check when it was I wrote about it… I’m back. It was March, at the other blog, in a post titled Aristocracy and Oligarchy – How We Got Here. In the comments of that post, The CL and Smitty proposed the excellent ideas of also repealing the Sixteenth and The Federal Reserve Act. Now you’re talkin’ some change I can believe in!

Now, these two proposals are admittedly lofty ideals and for sure not doable in the immediate future, and as Gene Healy points out, the 17th repeal in and of itself would be of minimal use without further regressive action. Regression is not necessarily a bad thing when it comes to removing power from a Federal government that has grown beyond its constitutionally limited bounds.

We may not be able to affect that change at the moment, but I believe it is a needed discussion for when we once again have conservatives in the wheelhouse of our ship of state.

While on a trek over to Louisiana today, something glinted in the corner of my eye right after crossing the TX/LA border, the Sabine river. So, I pulled over, got out and… Hey! it’s an Anna Little for Congress campaign sign!.Anna Little for Congress sign Louisiana

What are you doing in Louisiana little buddy? Come down all the way from New Jersey for some creole cookin’ did ya?

Guess some of these LA folk know a good conservative when they see one.

So, back into the car, off to do some business and I’m on the way back, and on a hunch mind you, I stop at the Texas tourist center. Bam! Another one of those Little guys.

Anna Little for Congress Sign Texas 1
I like how the six flags of Texas look in the background.

Then, as I’m about to pull out of the parking lot, I spy another Little sign.

Anna Little for Congress sign Texas 2

About now I realize, this is the same sign. The Little guy is following me! So I open up the car door, it jumps on in and away we go. Now it has a happy home right in my front yard. Which is where all good Little yard signs should be after all.

Please, don’t let a Little sign be neglected. Adopt one today and give it a home.

Thanks to Russ from That’s Right for allowing me to join his adopt-a-sign program.

You can find more serious information about Mayor Anna Little at her website, Anna C. Little for Congress.

Been meaning to post this video. As appropriate as it is…

I was thinking the last two AutoMotivators were too serious in tone. So, I started wondering, if the general public didn’t know what was really happening in Greece, how would the left spin the photos? So I did a couple in that vein. Then got off track again. Sue me.
