Fifty-one years have passed...

...but this sure sounds like a good idea today, doesn't it?...

1958 was a good year for many things including political action plans, apparently. So, do we ignore it again? Do we continue the status quo or do we stiffen our spines and start cutting the umbilical cord?...

Czar Accountability Reform Act of 2009 (HR 3226)

As my husband and I made our signs for the Louisville Tea Party on July 4, 2009, he wanted something unique on his sign. He researched and read online and finally came up with a brilliant idea for his sign -- "America: More Czars than Russia!"

I had no idea. It never actually occurred to me that we might have more than Russia had. Sure enough -- Russia had sixteen czars by 1916. Thanks to the Supreme Leader, Obama, Amerika now has twice as many. In eight months time, we have surpassed the total in Russian history!

Today, both my husband and I received letters from Senator McConnell's office. He directed us to a bill that is on its way to committee in the House of Representatives. A bill which neither of us had heard of until today -- The Czar Accountability Reform Act of 2009 (HR 3226).
"To provide that appropriated funds may not be used to pay for any salaries or expenses of any task force, council, or similar office which is established by or at the direction of the President and headed by an individual who has been inappropriately appointed to such position (on other than an interim basis), without the advice and consent of the Senate."

Given the 36 czars who are completely unaccountable to the American people in addition to the unresponsive and also unaccountable Federal Reserve Bank, this legislation needs to make it to the floor for a vote!

[Thank you, Senator McConnell, for providing me with this information. You are restoring my hope that you will find your way back to your constituency. I very much hope this is the beginning of a trend!]


"Get Out Of Our House!" is an idea whose time may have arrived.
"GOOOH stands for 'Get Out of Our House' and is pronounced like the word 'go'. It is a NON-PARTISAN plan to evict the 435 career politicians in the U.S. House of Representatives and replace them with everyday Americans just like you."

I'll be reading more on their website to see what this is all about; in the meantime, I thought I'd share the link so you all can take a look at this novel idea for changing "ownership" of our country too.

As always, I'm interested in your thoughts on it.

PS: I find it a tad unfortunate that the folks who named this organization decided to include an unnecessary O for "of" in their acronym. It would have been nice to have kept it to a much shorter and far more appealing "GOOH" but the idea itself is appealing so we'll just have to overlook that minor gooof. ;o)

Rand Paul for Senate 2010

Those of you who stop by on a regular basis know that I will miss Senator Bunning when he leaves office. I have never been very hot on the idea of Trey Grayson replacing Senator Bunning because he's too easily manipulated by senior politicians here in Kentucky. Don't get me wrong; Grayson's a nice guy. I just don't want to see him become Senator McConnell's pet project.

I want representation that matches... no, representation that beats Senator Bunning's best Conservative traits. That's what is needed at this time in history in every state. So, imagine my pleasant surprise when I looked more deeply at Rand Paul.

Paul has raised a lot of money for his campaign in a fairly short amount of time. He comes from Western Kentucky as does Bunning. The best part? He's Ron Paul's son and shares his father's Constitutional Conservatism!

I've made it no secret that I voted for Ron Paul in the 2008 Republican primary. Unfortunately, the Republican establishment still had their heads up their collective political arse last year when they awarded the nomination to McCain. To say I was deeply disappointed is a huge understatement.

Kentuckians now have an opportunity to help steer the leaky USS Political Ruling Class back into a Constitutional port for repairs by putting another Paul on Capitol Hill. The Republican party here in Kentucky has an opportunity to prove that they are miles ahead of the DC gang. I hope they step up to that opportunity 110% -- we can't afford to put yet another career politician in a seat of power in DC. It will most certainly sink under the weight.

We need strong Conservatives who are unafraid to throw the dead weight overboard, who will take a stand for liberty, who will put the Federal government back in Constitutional check, and who will bring America back to her Constitutional roots where she has always prospered. For that reason, I am supporting Rand Paul for Senate in 2010.

I hope you'll watch the interview. If you're unfamiliar with Ron Paul take some time to get to know him as well. Even though he represents Texas, he represents all Conservatives very well when he speaks on Capitol Hill.

An interesting side note about families and politics: My cousin, George, who lives in Texas, was very excited when he heard that Rand Paul was running for Senator Bunning's seat in 2010. He wrote to all of his Kentucky relatives to tell us about Rand Paul and his father, Ron. He wanted to be sure he let us know how much Paul deserves our votes next year. George had no idea how politically aware and active I am and I had no idea he was a Ron Paul fan. Isn't it nice to know that sometimes politics actually brings families closer together?

The Great Liberal Narrative

I have just seen the most brilliant summary of what we Conservatives mean when we say that the MSM is biased, what we mean when we express outrage over the lack of news coverage that is afforded stories that simply don't "fit the narrative."

Pajamas TV's Bill Whittle has done it in his Afterburner video titled, "MSNBC & the Great Liberal Narrative: The Truth about the Tyranny of Political Correctness." [I'm having trouble getting this video embedded. Please click the link in the text above and watch it. Believe me, you'll be glad you did.]

My fellow Conservatives will absolutely be cheering after they watch this -- "Finally! Someone has laid it out and said it better than ever before."

My Liberal friends -- many of whom are in total denial right now -- will probably deny, jeer, and ridicule; however, if they take the time to actually watch this with an open mind, they'll understand why many Americans (of every political party, race, and age) are upset at the mainstream media and politicians who have freely labeled and pigeon-holed us for so long.

Thank you and well done, Bill and PJTV!!

Obama Man Can!

[Greg Morton - my favorite Canadian!]

Only "UnAmerican" if you're on the Right side of the Issue!

Does the hypocrisy of the Left know no bounds?! Geez. C'mon, Leftists, it's time to give up the "protest is only okay if it's our people" attitude. Freedom of Speech is for ALL OF US!

An Honest Framing of the Real Debate

Camile Paglia's article in Salon is well worth the read for both Left and Right in this debate on health care reform.

[Thanks, Glenn, for posting the link on Facebook. It's nice to know that Kentucky public school didn't ruin our intellectual promise, huh?]

Tea Party Express Stop in Louisville

For the record, Liberals: None of us really give a rat's ass that you call our rallies "teabagging" or refer to us as "teabaggers." We know it's meant to be derisive but frankly we don't care. Doesn't bother us a bit, really. It's water off a duck's back, boneheads. Your silly little "Rules for Psychopaths" don't measure up to the American spirit when our freedoms are threatened.

Now that I've gone on the record with my complete disregard for derision by Liberals, here's an update for you on an upcoming local Tea Party and the Tea Party Express tour activities.

Louisville, Kentucky is one of the stops on the Tea Party Express tour that ends in Washington, DC on 9/12/09. Check out the latest press release from Our Country Deserves Better regarding the Tea Party Express tour.

SACRAMENTO, CA - The Countdown to the “Tea Party Express” has begun, as just fourteen days remain until the official launch of the historic "Tea Party Express" tour.

While the outcry against a hostile takeover of healthcare by the Obama Administration is reaching fever pitch, the Tea Party Express tour is gaining momentum and preparing to cross the country to host a series of 35 tea party rallies.

On August 28th, The Tea Party Express caravan, featuring two 45-foot busses, will head eastward from California to educate, entertain, and most importantly encourage Americans to continue their opposition to out-of-control deficit spending, government-run healthcare, higher taxes, a growth in the size and scope of government power, and irresponsible bailouts.

The "Tea Party" movement has matured greatly in the past year. What started out as a single cry for help has grown into a phenomenon that is sweeping the nation. Americans, outraged by reckless and oppressive government policy, are turning out by the thousands to call for a return to common sense principles of limited
government and adherence to the Constitution.

The Tea Party Express tour will feature action-oriented conservative spokespeople and entertainers such as talk show host Mark Williams, Marine Mom Deborah Johns, singer Lloyd Marcus, YouTube sensation Rivoli Revue, pop singer Diana Nagy, Tea Party Patriots member Amy Kremer, members of the media, and many more.

Unfurl those Gadsdens and get those signs ready, Louisville. Here's the 411 on the Louisville "Tea Party:"

Freedom of Speech is for all of us, whiners.

It's only "mean spiritied" when it's your guy and it's the truth, I suppose. Sorry, Obama-fanatics, as far as I know, the First Amendment still stands even when it's your guy being bashed.

It was funny when it was someone else's guy, huh? Possibly all that "everyone wins," "let's all play nice and not keep score," Liberal nonsense has ruined your sense of fair play. Stop whining. Buck up and take it like Americans. Wussies.

Conservative cars are cool.

Luxury cars are soon to be a thing of the past, I'm sure. The cost of luxury automobiles have always been a bit high for my budget. Even so, I wanted to take one out for a drive anyway and did so last week.

While I drove, the salesman sat in the back seat and described the car and options. The seats were of particular interest. They directed warm air to your tushie during the winter and cool air to your tushie in the summer heat.

"Well, this must be a Conservative car," I mused aloud.

Startled by such a comment, the salesman asked why I thought the car would be Conservative.

Actually, I'm rather shocked that any employee in the auto industry these days couldn't figure that one out but I told him anyway.

"Well, if it were a Liberal car, the seats would blow nothing but smoke up your ass year 'round."

[Thanks for that laugh, Cindy -- hope you don't mind the creative license I took with the original. You're such a cool sister-in-law!]

Have a peek for yourself, folks.

Read the Bill for yourself. Stay up-to-date and informed. Attend your local town hall meetings during the August recess to ask questions about this bill. Whatever you do, do it armed with knowledge, do it with the understanding that, even though they may think otherwise, your elected representatives work for YOU.

If you sit idly by, uneducated and unengaged, here's a glimpse of your future...

...yep. It actually *is* scary.

Spy vs. Spy in Amerika

I was going to write my own little piece on this but it's being talked about all over the internet this evening. Instead, I'll be lazy and link you to a piece that I particularly liked (especially the brillant accompanying artwork).

I have some serious scare-mongering and disinformation to report; however, I'd be willing to bet the President already knows he's doing it...

Jack Conway scares kids... and other people too.

For those of you who don't know about Kentucky's yearly, sweltering political picnic tradition, it's held one Saturday every summer at Fancy Farm in Western Kentucky and provides us common folk with the opportunity to hear rousing speeches from our local politicians in all their "gloves-off" glory. I haven't been to the picnic since 2004 because it's almost always miserably hot weather; however, for those who do brave the heat, there are usually moments when it seems worthwhile.

I hear that Jack Conway, a pretty-boy Democrat who hopes to win the Democrat nomination to run for Jim Bunning's Senate seat, provided that moment this year...

I don't know about you but I'd say those kids are scared of Jack Conway. Tsk, tsk, Mr. Conway. Such language! It seems you startled a few adults too.

[Thank you, Tiffany. You certainly lightened up an otherwise gloomy, rainy day for yours truly!]
