Well done, Lou...did you ever know you were my hero?

I have had a "Lou Dobbs for President" on my wall at work FOR YEARS! I give him a lot of credit for helping to open my eyes as to what is REALLY going on in this country and the world. CNN does not deserve him. I hope their ratings CONTINUE to tank! I can hear the progressives and La Raza singing for joy...

Well done, matter where you go from here, I pray you never give up the fight!

An oldie, but a goodie...and some Monday Night Football!

Hat tip to Rebecca at "Feigned Sincerity"...


I had been looking for a place to use this:

It is Monday night...ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL????

Denver, PLEASE beat Pittsburgh tonight!!!

The Entire Bengal Nation!!!

***hoping to be standing ALONE atop the AFC North come tomorrow morning***

Please forgive this foray into the world of NFL football this evening. It is just that the last time my Beloved Bengals had a record this good, my 22 year old daughter was 11 months old. The year was 1988 and we went to the Super Bowl. Can you forgive my sheer euphoria???

Still sickened this morning... the stealth and deception I witnessed last night.

Before I go on, let me state that I am NOT BEING insensitive to millions of Americans with no health care. MANY, MANY Americans...including yours truly...are just one health care catastrophe away from total disaster. It is a given that the health care system in this country needs to be overhauled. I am not opposed to that. What I AM opposed to, however, is that overhaul not only being served to me on a Socialist plate, but having something rammed down my throat. Moreover, the people doing the ramming have no idea what it even entails! Simply maddening...

So much for Pelosi's promise to have the bill available for 72 hours on the net. So much for ANY promise the progressives have made. What I witnessed late last night on C-Span made me grieve for my country.

At least, for now, the abortion funding provision of the bill was voted down. And the bill itself passed by such a narrow margin, Pelosi and her poodles must have had a heart attack.

If anybody knows the name of the Senator that has stated if the bill makes it to the Senate, he will stop proceedings to have the bill read...IN ITS ENTIRETY...please let me know. I want to contact his office and plead with him to do so. As well as contacting my Senators and asking them to do the same.

Adrienne over at "Motivation: Truth" posted Sarah Palin's Facebook entry regarding last night's debacle. I have copied it for my blog... {emphasis, mine}

The Pelosi Bill Was Rammed Through on Saturday, But Sunday’s Coming

We’ve got to hold on to hope, and we’ve got to fight hard because Congressional action tonight just put America on a path toward an unrecognizable country.

The same government leaders that got us into the mortgage business and the car business are now getting us into the health care business.

Despite Americans’ decisive message last Tuesday that they reject the troubling path this country has been taking, Speaker Pelosi has broken her own promises of transparency to ram a health “care” bill through the House of Representatives just before midnight. Why did she push the 2,000 page bill this weekend? Was she perhaps afraid to give her peers and the constituents for whom she works the chance to actually read this monstrous bill carefully, if at all? Was she concerned that Americans might really digest the details of a bill that the Wall Street Journal has called “the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced”?

This out-of-control bureaucratic mess will be disastrous for our economy, our small businesses, and our personal liberty. It will slam businesses at a time when we are at double-digit unemployment rates – the highest we’ve seen in a quarter of a century. This massive new bureaucracy will cost us and our children money we don’t have. It will rob Americans of more of our freedom and further hamper the free market.

Make no mistake: we’re on course to have government commandeer one-sixth of our economy. The people who gave us Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac now want to run our health care. Think about that.

All of us who value the sanctity of life are grateful for the success of the pro-life majority in the House this evening in its battle against federal funding of abortion in this bill, but it’s ironic because we were promised that abortion wasn’t covered in the bill to begin with. Our healthy distrust of these government leaders made us look deeper into the bill because unfortunately we knew better than to trust what they were saying. The victory tonight to amend the bill and eliminate that federal funding for abortion was great – because abortion is not health care. Now we can only hope that Rep. Stupak’s amendment will hold in the final bill, though the Democratic leadership has already refused to promise that it won’t be scrapped later.

We had been told there were no “death panels” in the bill either. But look closely at the provision mandating bureaucratic panels that will be calling the shots regarding who will receive government health care.

Look closely at provisions addressing illegal aliens’ health care coverage too.

Those of us who love freedom and believe in open and transparent government can only be dismayed by midnight action on a Saturday. Speaker Pelosi’s promise that Americans would have 72 hours to read the final bill before the vote was just another one of the D.C. establishment’s too-common political ploys. It’s broken promises like this that turn people off to politics and leave them disillusioned about the future of their country.

But despite this late-night maneuvering, many of us were paying close attention tonight. We’ll keep paying close attention. We need to let our legislators in Washington know that they still represent us, and that the majority of Americans are not in favor of the “reform” they are pushing. After all, this is still a country “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” We will make our voices heard. It’s on to the Senate now. Our legislators can listen now, or they can hear us in 2010. It’s their choice.

- Sarah Palin

Here is another great blog post I found I hope you will take the time to read. Thanks, Pappy...

This is an excerpt taken from it. {I am sure most of you heard about this...}

Congressman James Clyburn, a black Democrat who is the majority whip in the House, interviewed on FOX News the other day. He was asked what provision of the Constitution authorized Congress to spend one nickel on health care. He cavalierly replied, “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do."

Truly amazing...

As "David" states in the post...

"If you agree with my thoughts, the time is already past for drastic action. We can no longer just sit back and vote. We must aggressively move to stop all of this by forming groups which monitor and put pressure on our elective representatives each and every day. We must do it en masse to show we mean business. We must do it now. If we don't, our children and grandchildren will never know the freedom or even the prosperity we have known. The Great American Experiment will be dead...and it will have succumbed on our watch."

God help the United States of America...
