FEATURE STORY November 2, 2009

Elizabeth Halseth for Assembly District 13

I know many of my readers are in the Las Vegas area.  I urge you to support Elizabeth in the upcoming election.  She is the type of "politician" we need in this country... namely, a non-politician!  She has honesty and integrity, a great family, great Conservative values, and is not afraid to get in and stir things up.  She also received the Patrick Henry Award from the Army National Guard... my kind of woman!

Elizabeth will tackle Nevada issues from the common sense Conservative point of view that we need to undo the awful mess these Progressive minds have led us into.  She is against raising taxes, and backdoor "fees" that the left uses when it says "we won't raise your taxes!"  She also recognizes the need for Nevada to grow by cutting regulations and helping small businesses, which will in turn create jobs.  I love her pledge as far as education: "To ensure that the education budget supports classrooms rather than bureaucracy."  Of course here in California we have a tyrannical teachers union with its umbilical cord tied to the Democratic Party, so a statement like that would never see the light of day.

My Nevada friends, I suggest you go to Elizabeth's site: www.elizabethhalseth.com and read more about her.  While your there, consider making a donation to the campaign.  Elizabeth is representative of the type of outstanding young men and women we need to get into the political arena and help return this country to greatness.

 

 

The Secret Service Accounts of our Presidents!

When the book on Secret Service eyewitness accounts of our Presidents came out, I secretly hoped it would reveal stories that would affirm what my instincts told me these men were like.

As far as my take on Progressives is concerned, these are people who are elitists by nature, who know more than you do, and deep-down, know you are not smart enough to manage your own thoughts and affairs.  So they have to do it for you.  They are against the rights of the individual, but rather are for the larger rights of the government.  Although they gear their programs to appeal to the poor and the masses, they actually despise the little man, and have over the last forty years, done little to improve the plight of the poor.  They consider themselves better than the public.  They are the ruling class.

My view of conservatives: they believe in the power of the individual, they don't distinguish between classes, but rather want to improve conditions for ALL Americans, without relying on divisions by class and race.  Their values are applied equally toward every American, and they don't consider themselves any different than the average American.

I am happy to say that the Secret Service accounts of our Presidents bear me out.  The best example:

Jimmy Carter... the most hated by all the agents.  According to their insights, this President did not speak to anyone he considered beneath him, which was almost everyone.  He had the same driver for seven years, and never spoke to him.  He carried an empty bag over his shoulder to show he was a "common man" while his real luggage was toted by others.  He arrived at the White House at 5:00 AM to show the public he was "on the job" but closed the curtains, and went back to sleep.  According to agent accounts, he was despised by all at the White House. 

Ronald Reagan... the most loved by the agents.  A President who was accessible and always sought the input of the man on the street.  A man who befriended those who worked for him, and was concerned about those around him.  A President who arrived back at the White House from a trip, only to be greeted by the White House staff, who all came running out to greet him. He was a man who quietly gave agents four and five thousand dollar personal checks to people who had written to him who were down and out.  He was the Ronald Reagan that we all thought he was.

It seems that these accounts bear out what I had always thought about these two men.  Whether their personal philosophies of government shaped their personalities, or they were just two different kinds of men... you be the judge.

The book is a fascinating read.  It is called 'In The President's Secret Service' by Ronald Kessler.

 

 

After 12 Million Votes...

The non-partison AT&T / Yahoo Poll is an interesting reflection of voter sentiment.  Here is the question and the results:

Obama and the economy Results

Q. The president's progress with the battered economy has been both praised and criticized. How well are his efforts measuring up with you?

Extremely well. We are undoubtedly moving in the right direction. 30%
Fairly well. There's still a long way to go. 5%
Not well at all. His plans are hurting more than helping. 64%
Not sure/No opinion. 1%

 Even ABC (The All Barrack Channel) Is Having Trouble With The Stimulus Numbers

According to ABC, it is costing the American taxpayer $160,000 fo every Stimulus job created.  How did ABC arrive at that number?  At Recovery.gov, the White House claimed 640,329 jobs have been created or saved because of the $159 billion in stimulus funds allocated as of Sept. 30.  So let's see... 160 billion divided by 1 million. Does that mean the stimulus costs taxpayers $160,000 per job?  It's probably much worse than that, because the Administration has pumped up the job numbers.  In some cases (and the White House is admitting there are many mistakes) the same jobs were counted three and even four times.  Where did they learn how to do that?  Oh yeah, at ACORN!

 

Coming to a town near you: Muslim prayer-in-school allowed in New Jersey!

I thought the new left-fascists were putting their anti-God practice into effect in as many arenas as possible:  taking prayer out of schools, trying and succeeding to get funding away from religious schools, getting the Ten Commandments removed from public buildings, banning celebrations of Christmas, taking "God" off our money, etc.  These despicable people try to do all they can to erase the moral fiber of our country, except in one area... Muslim religion and rights.  The only thing they hate worse than religion, is a lack of multi-cultural tolerance.

This school in New Jersey IS allowing Muslim students to pray ON CAMPUS during school hours in a classroom.  The daily ritual will be allowed at the Albert Payson Terhune Elementary School in New Jersey.  Too bad the liberal school board isn't as enthusiastic about the Pledge of Allegiance!

I know it would be politically incorrect and soooo intolerant of the "needs" of these Muslims, but instead of caving to their every demand, how about saying, "We don't allow prayer at school in this country... of course you're free to go to another country where the rules are different." 

 

And while we're on the subject...

Let's give three cheers to Sarkozy and the French, for saying thumbs down to burqas.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy declared Monday that the Islamic burqa is not welcome in France, branding the face-covering, body-length gown as a symbol of subservience that suppresses women's identities and turns them into "prisoners behind a screen."

In a high-profile speech to lawmakers in the historic chateau at Versailles, Sarkozy said the head-to-toe Muslim body coverings were in disaccord with French values - some of the strongest language against burqas from a European leader at a time when some Western officials have been seeking to ease tensions with the Muslim world.  "In our country, we cannot accept that women be prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity," Sarkozy said to extended applause of the lawmakers gathered where French kings once held court.

"The burqa is not a religious sign, it's a sign of subservience, a sign of debasement.  I want to say it solemnly," he said. "It will not be welcome on the territory of the French Republic."
