I donated because our current government is the worst I've seen, and it's time the American people stood up for what's right.

Today our government's unwillingness to protect our borders from illegal aliens, some of whom are drug dealers, murderers and terrorists, has been etched in stone via the court. The Obama administration has won its suit against the state of Arizona, thus paving the way for illegal aliens to stroll into our country, fleece our resources and spit on our constitution.
Arizona employs the only government entity willing to take a stand against brazen illegal immigration. The job of protecting us from invasion belongs squarely with the federal government, but for some reason the feds refuse to protect us. Not only have they failed to protect us, but they have aggressively fought against anyone who would defend us. Why? Maybe Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) can shed some light on the question.
Senator Menendez in an interview today essentially admitted that the lawsuit against Arizona was about securing Latino votes for the Democrats. This is deplorable to say the least. If it doesn't elicit disgust within you, then you've probably just gone numb.
Governor Rod Blagojevich of Illinois is currently on trial; he's accused of essentially selling Barack Obama's state senate seat, left vacant when he moved to the presidency. Blago could receive upwards of 400 years in prison if found guilty. Apparently selling government appointments is bad, yet here we have a U.S. senator admitting to bribing an entire ethnic group, at the expense of America's safety, and there's no ensuing outcry.
Polls indicate that around two-thirds of Americans support the Arizona law, which, by the way, does not deviate from federal law itself. Despite this overwhelming support the Obama administration, which has done almost nothing to stem the flow of illegal immigration, has snubbed its nose at the American people.
If someone climbed your back yard fence, broke into your house and cooked a meal in your kitchen, you would demand police action. If your neighbor broke into your garage and took your car for a joy ride he would face legal repercussions. If someone broke into your house in order to steal your valuables, you would absolutely have the right to defend yourself using lethal force. If that same robber shot your spouse he would face serious prison time.
If you are an illegal alien invading America's borders, President Obama has now given you carte blanche to do as you please. Don't worry, there's nothing I can do to stop you...at least not without being arrested for violating your rights.

What do you call hundreds of thousands of people illegally entering our country, using our resources and sometimes committing additional crimes? I call it an invading force.
What do you call a federal government whose utter failure to secure our borders has made this invasion an almost inevitable reality? I call it incompetent at best. With really only two major jobs to do, protect us and fix our roads, the current government has solidified itself as one of the poorest administrations we've seen.
Rising before the Obama government's immoral reluctance to deal with illegal immigration is one lone state: Arizona. Before Arizona flipped the bird to political correctness, the rest of us cowardly buckled from the sheer terror of being labeled racist. Arizona, however, has given this country enough room to grow a backbone. Thanks, Arizona, for the splash of cold water.
It's time to quash political correctness forever in favor of basic common sense. Those who try to blur the line between immigration and illegal immigration should be called out and held accountable. We have always been a country open to immigration; no country, however, is open to illegal immigration. There is a huge difference between these two terms; those who equate the two as synonymous are irresponsible at best.
We should jam the federal government's phone lines with complaints about its lawsuit against Arizona. The highest priority of the American government is to keep its citizens safe, yet if the Obama administration wins its lawsuit against Arizona it will actually advance the cause of illegal immigration and make us much less safe. Our safety is priority one. Priority one!
I don't need Obama's help to choose a doctor, nor do I need his help deciphering a proper diet for myself. President Obama said he would sign an executive order ensuring that my tax dollars would never pay for abortions; it disgusts me that he lied about this and is now taking my money and using it to kill children. He wants to force me to report my personal body fat! How is that his business? All I need is safety, and his administration is doing a crappy job protecting me. He's not interested in keeping us safe; he's interested in controlling our lives.
No other administration has come anywhere close to the control Obama is wresting from the American people. Does this not frighten you? Anger you? Disgust you? The American people are asleep at the wheel. We are so sure that a Hitler, Mao, Stalin could never rise to power here, meanwhile Obama is slowly taking our liberty from us one by one. Do you think any of the aforementioned "leaders" came to power by admitting they would kill a lot of their citizenry? No, they came full of promise and ideals, but they grabbed almost total control of their constituents' lives. The Obama administration is doing this same thing.
I'm not accusing President Obama of genocide, evil or even entertaining designs on dictatorship. He has admitted, however, to having the goal of wealth redistribution, and he is most definitely taking a number of our freedoms away from us. As for dictatorial designs, he has appointed how many "czars"? These appointments, most of them, are not subject to the will of the American people, nor are they subject to the scrutiny and approval of Congress. They are simply appointed by the president.
Nearly the only real assignment the government has is to protect us. Obama is not even trying to hide his antipathy toward this lofty but simple call. He is brazenly snubbing his nose at the very idea of protecting our borders, but he's certainly and arrogantly embracing a desire to control each of our lives.
You can either wake up, show up at the polls and kick this fool and his minions out, or you can remain ignorant, give up your liberties and join the Obama chorus in blaming George Bush.

Bolting, cat-like, from the brush, Bullwinkle here, with gnashing teeth, stood between my wife and I as we were driving home yesterday from Rangely. I know this photo is a little blurry, but if you look closely at the top of the road just to the right of the yellow lines you will see the frightful beast.
Linda was so excited that she leapt from the truck and fired off several photos, all of which are a bit blurry. I think this adds a bit of mystique, in an Area 51 sort of way.
It's our first Maine moose sighting. And, of course, I couldn't help but think of the moose meat summer sausage I had earlier this year. Mmmmmm!

Also this week, it was revealed that under Obamacare, federal tax dollars will be funding abortions in Maryland.
Abortion is America's holocaust; now whether or not you are pro-life you will be paying for doctors to kill babies. This is a time for all of us to be in prayer, and it's a time all of us need to take action. Call your congressmen/women and let them know how you feel.
If our leaders cannot stand for the most basic human right, life itself, please explain to me how I can trust them to make any major decisions.
I just discovered that the Obama administration is going to "monitor obesity." Whose obesity? Why yours and mine, that's whose!
According to a Fox News report on July 17, the federal government is going to demand obesity rankings for all citizens by 2014. Does this sound like "change you can believe in"? It doesn't to me. Rather, it sounds like federal control over individual lives. Or, put another way -- you cannot be trusted to feed yourselves properly, so the government will decide for you. That glub glub glub sound you just heard was yet another of your individual rights circling the drain. Will you do something about it, or will you blithely bid it adieu?
The outrage over this issue is shocking in its peaceful tranquility! Are we a gaggle of frogs warming in a pan? This administration has in less than two years told us we are too incompetent to choose our own doctor, too impulsive to handle our own retirement money and now too daft to feed ourselves. Meanwhile many of us would rather cling to personal pride than admit that electing Barack Obama was a horrible mistake.
Wake up! If you think there is any evil under the sun that simply cannot happen here in America, you are delusional.

Welcome to my blog.
I am a frustrated American male with very few outlets in which I can vent. The wife can take only so much.
So this is it. My intention is to convey thoughts on whatever floats my boat. My frustrations are often a result of political issues, so many of my thoughts will be of that nature. I am conservative, so that's your only warning! That said, I am happy to hear your thoughts on my thoughts if you fancy engaging. Please don't be crude, but feel free to be incendiary, sharp or even angry. I can take it.
