At the risk of piling on...


On your marks, get set, GOOOH!

Folks, the time is fast approaching to commit to changing this Congress from dysfunctional and self-interest to a balanced, citizen-focused legislative body as was the original intent. It's fast approaching time to serve that evict notice on the career politicians who have been squatting for far too long in OUR House of Representatives. Stop your whining, dust off your britches, stand up straight and tall, and shout from the depths of your lungs, "GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE!" It's time for that loud but peaceful Second American Revolution I promised you.

It's such a simple and practical plan that it will leave House members scratching their heads and wondering what happened to their careers as slick, establishment, big-government politicians. It can't happen without each and every one of you. If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten. It sounds like most of us don't like what we keep getting.

I'm personally sick to death of career politicians who are devoted to party instead of principle, Republicans and Democrats alike. The broken system we've got now is the result of our insistence on voting for party politicians instead of citizens who want to devote themselves to serving this country. Let's face it, politicians devote their staff members to serving the country while they devote themselves to stocking the campaign warchest for the next election cycle. Is that REALLY what you sent them to DC to do?

Check out the GOOOH website, sign up, answer the questionnaire, get onboard, and spread the word far and wide. Your friends and family will appreciate it. You'll be giving them the opportunity to be GOOOH before GOOOH becomes cool. This revolution will be televised and you'll be in the cast. ;-)  Who doesn't love that?!

And, here's the word today straight from the man with the plan, Tim Cox...

The Pig is Committed 
 

On March 4th a major international television station plans to run a story covering GOOOH. We'll announce details on the GOOOH Home Page on March 1st.

 
Senator Evan Bayh (D) of Indiana announced last week he would not run for re-election, calling Congress "a dysfunctional system." Even those in office know the truth of our message. He went on to say, "...we need to vote out the partisans who care more about their political fortunes than the country." This comes but days after a New York Times / CBS News poll that says, "Just 8% of Americans want the members of Congress re-elected."
 
I can't for the life of me figure out who those 8% are or who the 15% are who say they approve of the job Congress is doing. There is absolutely no question that Americans are ready to FIRE Congress. Every thinking person in America knows we must find new leaders, and soon.
 
The real question is, "Are we brave enough and committed enough to do what must be done?"
 
Will we complain like children or will we act like responsible adults? Will we help make it happen or watch from the sidelines? Will the fear of splitting the vote dictate our actions when every piece of information we have says we will win in a landslide?
 
Will we be afraid to replace our representative, insisting he is likable and generally votes the way we would, and wait for the other 434 districts to change theirs? Will we ignore the fact that there are thousands of eminently qualified men and women in our 660,000 member district who can do the job? Will we allow our peers to use Ross Perot's failed presidential bid as justification for why an independent candidate cannot win?
 
Will we put the Republicans back in power again, despite their repeated failures? Like a battered wife who fears leaving an abusive husband, will we give the Republicans yet one more chance?
 
Will we stand up for what we believe and save our country, or will we allow the peddling politicians to destroy it?
 
We are approaching 1,000,000 visitors to our site, a feat accomplished purely by word of mouth. From the beginning we have said we do not need money. Now, having collected almost $100,000, it is time to move to the next phase. We are finalizing our financial structure this week and will ask those who are ready to donate to do so in about one week.

We have hired a top-notch marketing company and will launch the first phase of our marketing campaign in about three weeks. The donations will determine the scope of the effort; there remains no requirement to donate at this time. GOOOH has been self-funded to date. It has been built by a few very dedicated patriots. Now, the time approaches for others to pitch in financially. Please give thought to your ability and willingness to help us reach our membership goal. Check with your spouse and your conscience.
 
It is said the chicken contributes to breakfast but the pig is committed. We will soon ask if you are ready to commit. With a little help, we will succeed this year!
 
Sincerely,
Tim C 
 
Join the Revolution!

Albert Einstein knows how you vote. Tim Cox wants to change that.

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." -- Albert Einstein

Hey, Al was right. I don't know about you but I'm through with insanity. Join me.

REMINDER: Tim Cox, Founder, conducts GOOOH Mock Selection Session tomorrow

This may be your only chance this year to hear the story of GOOOH ("Get Out Of Our House" -- the plan for evicting all 435 members of the US House of Representatives) directly from the founder, Tim Cox. He will be in Louisville tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 19th) to talk about GOOOH and conduct a "mock selection session." The mock selection session demonstrates the process GOOOH will use in every district across the United States for selecting its candidates for the House elections this year.

The session will be held at the Holiday Inn on Hurstbourne Lane (at I-64) on Feb. 19th from 7pm to 9pm.

I will be one of the 200 people who are expected to attend this event. I have volunteered my time to the Kentucky chapter of GOOOH because it is brilliant and it is revolutionary. You won't find any career politicans at this event because GOOOH is a direct threat to the on-going partisan divide in DC. This is a NON-PARTISAN process to replace career politicians with true citizen representatives. Believe me, you won't want to miss this!

Tim Cox has been interviewed twice now by Lou Dobbs ("Mr. Independent") who is endorsing this plan. Tim was recently featured on Fox News, interviewed by Time Magazine, and followed for two days by CBN for a new piece they are doing this month. GOOOH is based on Tim's book, "Get Out Of Our House: Revolution!"

Science News!

Heaviest Element Yet Known to Science Discovered

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California has now identified with certainty the heaviest element known to science.

The new element, Pelosium (PL), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Pelosium is inert, and has no charge and no magnetism. Nevertheless, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Pelosium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.

Pelosium has a normal half-life of 2 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a biennial reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

Pelosium mass will increase over time, since each reorganization will promote many morons to become isodopes.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Pelosium becomes Senatorium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Pelosium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

Some Tea Partiers ARE serious, Gene!

I couldn't agree with Gene Healy more on this. It struck me as oddly funny that while many of us were marching in DC on 9/12, some folks were carrying signs that basically said, "don't mess with my entitlement." Wrong message for rallying in support of a return to our Constitution, folks!

Gene Healy: Tea Partiers should get serious | Washington Examiner

Nice work, Gene. I hope the message continues to spread as the Tea Party movement gains more traction.

Changing the nation for the better in 2010

I just ran across this video on YouTube and wanted to share it because it links two things I am very passionate about -- GOOOH and the Taxpayer March on DC -- both of which stand a very good chance of changing this nation for the better this year.

By the way, mark your calendars, the next March on DC is scheduled for Saturday, September 11th this year. Be there or be square!

Repeal the First Amendment?!

I don't know about you but this scares the hell out of me! Americans, you'd better get educated and quickly or this won't even be a joke...



[My thanks to Ron Jones and his post,"A Nation of Sheep," for the discovery of this video. Nice blog, Ron!]

...but wait there's more! And, as evidenced by the next video, you youngsters should be sure to show a little more respect for your elders from now on; they just might save you from financial slavery if you're really, really nice to them!

Turning up the heat on the IPCC

From those hard-working folks at Pajamas Media, some good news from the senate chamber (for once).

"Inhofe, a long-time critic of the evidence for anthropogenic global warming and of the "cap and trade" carbon exchange schemes, used his floor speech to point out to the Senate that the IPCC report included the infamous "2035″ date for the disappearance of glaciers from the Himalayas — which the IPCC has now been forced to retract."
 
It's nice to see Senator Inhofe hold back Big Brother's feet to the fire on the IPCC's "fact" fabrication factory. Thanks, Senator!

President Me!

Oh man! I can't wait for this to hit broadway -- I wonder who they'll tap for the lead role?...

One man's corpse is another man's nuculer?


Thursday, at the National Day of Prayer breakfast, our illustrious "Teleprompter in Chief" made a complete fool of himself.

Most folks know the correct pronunciation of the word "Corps" is "core;" hence the correct pronunciation of "Corpsman" is "coreman." Yet this man, who touts his education at both Columbia and Harvard, pronounced it "corpse" when talking about a US Navy Corpsman during his speech.

The same media who slammed George W. Bush for every verbal error gave this arrogant, grinning, nose-in-the-air, jug-eared radical a total pass on this. The double-standard and blatant hypocrisy is shameful. I suppose one man's "corpse" is another man's "nuculer." Or maybe it's simply that the folks who actually voted for and still worship this turkey can't bear to acknowledge "His" mistakes?

You can watch his repeated mispronunciation in these two videos:

Jeri Thompson Releases Memo Showing SEIU Setting Senate Schedule on Becker Vote

From our friends at the Washington News Alert:

Memo Shows SEIU Setting Senate Schedule on Becker Vote


Email Released by Jeri Thompson Raises Eyebrows

February 9th, 2010, Fairfax, VA—An email sent from a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) lobbyist to Democratic members of the U.S. Senate shows that the SEIU had advance knowledge of when key votes on Craig Becker were to be held. Becker is one of Barack Obama’s nominees for the National Labor Relations Board.

The email was released by Jeri Thompson, co-host of the Fred Thompson Show. She will be discussing it in detail on her show, which begins at 12PM.

Thompson described the email as “marching orders to the Senate HELP Committee, telling them what their schedule was going to be.”

According to the email sent from Alison Reardon, legislative consultant for SEIU, “Your attendance is crucial to appointing Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Please attend Thursday’s HELP Ex. Session to report out President Obama’s nomination of Craig Becker for Senate confirmation.”

The memo continues, “This is the highest priority for organized labor, and Majority Leader Reid will file Cloture on Friday 2/5, and has assured us that Senate will vote to end debate at 5 p.m. Monday 2/8.”

The email also asks for Senators to confirm their attendance at the executive session of the HELP Committee.

Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson praised Thompson, saying, “Jeri Thompson has done the nation a great service by releasing this email, which clearly shows the SEIU setting the Senate’s agenda. This is unseemly.”

ALG Research Director, Don Todd, said that the email shows that “The SEIU is setting the Senate agenda on the Becker confirmation. She knew prior to the final committee vote when the vote on the floor was going to be. Before the committee knew, before Senate Republicans knew.”

“That is just unheard of,” Todd added.

Robert Romano, Washington News Alert Bureau Chief, contributed to this report.

FW: The Real Grassroots Tea Party Conventions - April 15th

The Grassroots Tea Party Conventions - April 15th

Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,
Tea Party Patriots, an organization with a reach of millions of members and over 1,000 voluntarily affliated tea party and 912 local groups asks: WHY WOULD 600 PEOPLE AT A RALLY CREATE A MEDIA FRENZY?

For the last year, Tea Party Patriots have come together in every state across the nation, held tea parties in larger cities to smaller towns and nearly 2 million tea party patriots showed up in DC in September to rally together for the cause of liberty. Where was the media then?

Why did the media choose to show up at a tea party rally in Nashville that marketed itself as a "national convention" with only 600 participants who claimed to speak on behalf of the movement?

Why would the media show up just because a national figure was asked to speak? National figures spoke all over the country in local tea party rallies all year and in DC on September 12th.

We believe the answer to "Why?" is this:
  • There are heavy efforts underway to align us to a political party.
  • There is great concern that the Tea Party Movement will become a third party.
  • The media did not do their homework on this "national convention" and is now creating misinformation on the movement.
The Tea Party Movement started because of these tactics and we will not be used like this. We are smarter than that and we will call out any one and any organization who tries to undermine the grassroots movement known as the Tea Party Movement.

Our challenge regarding this misrepresentation:

For the media:
  • While we appreciate the national spotlight, we challenge you to do your homework on press releases and marketing strategies of groups and individuals. Had you given the National March on Washington the same coverage you gave this "convention" it would have been more realistic of the voice of the people. During that march, it was evident what the people of the movement wanted our platform to be: LIBERTY.
  • We challenge the media to show up in their individual cities and towns on April 15th as we gather for our "regional conventions" and Stand Up for LIBERTY once again.
For the politicians:
  • We believe the thrust of our effort has been and will continue to be providing proper forums for all Americans to voice their opinions about their existing government and the changes that are necessary to restore the country to a constitutional footing. We do not dictate to our members. They get enough of that from the parties and from our government. They want the freedom to find facts, participate individually and act accordingly. We the People are smart and will not buy any tactics by politicians to use or co-opt us or the movement.
For the people:
  • Become well-informed citizens and know the tactics that will be used against us - especially in 2010. This is an important year politically and we will do our best to inform and educate you on issues. We will also alert you to tactics used by political parties and outside interests to hijack the movement. We ask you to do the same thing on a local basis so we can stop the madness and right our country to common sense decision-making.
  • If you have not joined a local Tea Party, find one and get involved. This is where you can meet up with like-minded individuals who love their country and want to protect it. To find a local tea party group, go to http://teapartypatriots.org/Search.aspx.
Tea Party Patriots is a grassroots organization represented by ordinary citizens standing up for LIBERTY and dedicated to reclaiming America's founding principles.

Tea Party Patriots are just ordinary people reclaiming America's founding principles.

Election 2010: Kentucky Senate Race

The race in Kentucky is shaping up nicely! GO RAND GO!

Dangerous Double Standards

The following article by Ben Stein at The American Spectator points out the very obvious but very dangerous double standard being practiced by Obama's "Justice" Department.

Free James O'Keefe
Eric Holder's hideous double standard.

You're right, Ben: We are NOT afraid and we are NOT going away! Bravo and thanks for a courageous article!

WHAS-11 Report on Saturday's Rand/Ron Rally



One of our local TV stations did a really nice job reporting on this rally. The coverage was broad and accurate. At the risk of sounding like a media-bashing cynic, I was really quite surprised by it! As for Trey Grayson's response to the Rand/Ron Rally, wll, phrases like "pro-choice marijuana advocate" and words like "liberal" are laughable and misused when describing either of the Pauls.

There is nothing Liberal about expecting the Federal government to keep its legislative paws off the States responsibilities. States may decide to legislate drug laws or marriage laws but it is out of the purview of the powers enumerated to the Federal government in the Constitution. The Pauls are BOTH very Constitutionally Conservative. It's refreshing to hear from Conservatives who take the Constitution seriously, quite unlike Mitch McConnell and the Establishment Republicans in Kentucky.

If I were Grayson, I'd be running for the OTHER senate seat when Mitch comes up for re-election. No one likes a squishy Conservative... vote for abominations like TARP, expect to be replaced.

Haiti Still Needs Help

As someone who experienced firsthand the Loma Prieta earthquake (7.1 magnitude) in 1989, I can tell you that the devastation wrought by earthquakes at 7.0 and greater -- even in areas where buildings are meant to withstand such force -- is scary. Even though there were blessedly far fewer deaths in that quake, the damage (emotional, physical, and structural), remains for months on into years. The need for help continues long after the initial calls for assistance.

As is usually the case, the initial calls for help for the people of Haiti have begun to fade; however, the Haitians and the people who are on the ground helping them continues.

International Medical Corps was on the ground in Haiti less than 24 hours after the 7.0 earthquake struck on January 12, 2010. They are still there and they still need your help.

They are working throughout Port-au-Prince, including the Hôpital de l'Université d'État d'Haiti, the largest hospital in the city. Their doctors and nurses are performing 30-50 surgeries daily. They are treating more than 1,000 patients a day across all facilities – hospital, static clinics and mobile clinics.

Beyond the capital, their mobile medical teams are providing medical care and delivering supplies in underserved areas including Petit-Goâve, Grande Goave, Petionville, Boloise, Carrefour, Jacmal, and Gressier.

Current reports indicate:

•At least 110,000 people are confirmed dead.
•More than 1 million people have been displaced by the earthquake.
•As many as 5.4 million people have been affected.

International Medical Corps will continue to work hand in hand with the Haitian people to rebuild their devastated health care system.

If you need to know more about this group before donating, the important thing to know is that this organization has an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy. More than 92% of the charity's resources go directly to program activities.

Donating $10 to help the people of Haiti is as simple as sending a text message of the word "haiti" to 85944.

God bless and keep the people of Haiti and the good people on the ground helping them. Keep up the good work, IMC!

Good Luck, Scott... er, uh, I mean ADAM!

In the Illinois gubernatorial race, conservative and tea party candidate Adam Andrzejewski received former Polish President Lech Walesa's endorsement on Friday in Chicago. Even more exciting, Rush Limbaugh's description of him as "the Scott Brown of Illinois!"
