Try following me on Twitter (@FairKaye) to see the articles I find both important and informative. This is a crucial time for all patriotic Americans to stay involved and instructed in the real news of the day, not the current propaganda.
Today's Tweets and ReTweets: # A crime against us all - Dust bowl, California-style at Power Line
# thomgough Puerto Rican people have rejected statehood three times since 1991! Besides a power grab why else would congress be trying to do this again? 5:33 PM Apr 28th via TweetDeck Retweeted by you and 7 others
I do not trust any legislation coming from our current crop of Congressional Clowns. I wish we could entice them all to just stay home until after the November elections. Tacitus was right: "The more corrupt the state, the more it legislates." Gaius Cornelius Tacitus (Roman Senator and Historian, AD100)
Our dear friend, Harry Reid, is trying to push through a vote on the travesty of a banking reform bill today. It's been quickly cobbled together by the same people who caused the problems in the first place. 1. This bill establishes a continuing slush fund for future bailouts or other shenanigans. 2. It increases the power of union blocks through so called empowerment of shareholders. 3.It establishes a new bureaucracy that will over regulate businesses and dampen the economy and kill even more jobs.
Sorry for the lack of posting lately. Allergy season has been a bear here in Atlanta this year. We had rain on Saturday to get the pollen count down, but it didn't come soon enough to prevent a wicked sinus infection.
Pew Research, an organization that usually favors Democrats, has published a new poll showing the low level of trust between the American people and their government. Inadvertently, their chart reveals that the level of trust and satisfaction with government goes down when we have Democratic administrations: Carter, Clinton, and Obama. It's an interesting phenomenon since Democrats generally favor federal government solutions to every problem. So, why is the party continuing to speed toward massive government take over of auto industry, banking industry, health care, etc.?
Kelsey Grammer is one of the lead backers of The RightNetwork, a new media outlet for conservative news and views. It will begin sometime this summer and be available on demand online, on mobile phones, and on-demand cable. Check out website and see trailers for some of the first shows they will air. Join them on Facebook and Twitter to offer your encouragement.
1. A cheery way to brighten your Monday morning would be to read the clever "Why I Vote Democratic" at Brutally Honest.
2.This administration and its public relations agents, a.k. mass media, apparently have no clue when it comes to economics. Every single report comes with a variation of the word "unexpected." In last Friday's dump of unpleasant news, Geithner says economy growing faster than expected. In light of the fact most people have not yet discerned any real growth, one wonders exactly what they were expecting.
3. Finally, some real coverage of the beating of 2 young Republicans in New Orleans after the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. The girl is still in the hospital after surgery to repair broken leg; the boy had a broken jaw. PowerLine links the attack to Democratic party. Big Government gives details of the attack and the injuries suffered. Mass media is too busy claiming that Tea Partiers are neo Klan members to notice that only real violence has come from Democrats in Pittsburg, St. Louis, and New Orleans.
4. The Catholic Church gets support from an unlikely source - a Jewish businessman in Cleveland. Refreshing to see that someone outside of the Church recognizes the recent attacks on Catholics and the Pope are based on prejudice, not facts. There have been point by point refutations of the instances when outright lies were told and when relevant facts were omitted on these stories dealing with decades old stories. But this man puts it all in perspective and looks at the big picture instead.
When you notice a framed picture of bluebonnets in his home or office. You can always tell how homesick he is by counting how many such pictures he owns. Count me as very homesick. And yes, I also get homesick for New Mexico, the land of my birth and early childhood.
No wonder Americans are upset with BIG government and high taxes. This year they will pay more in taxes than for housing, clothing, and shelter put together. Support your local group no matter how much the media is trying to disparage them.
In 1913, Federal taxes were 1% of income and the average family paid $12.97 in taxes. Today, a fairly low estimate of Federal taxes is 18.56% and the average family pays $6,922.50 on April 15, or an increase of 53,414%.
The German DGC magazine recently issued a full report about the Gold Cartel in Washington/Wall Street/London that has artificially kept the price of gold and silver low -- a story our media earnestly avoids. Use the link above to download the article, then pass it on to your friends.
I've been following the story since September 2009 and this is the first big revelation outside of GATA (Gold Anti Trust Action Committee) itself. Although gold has topped its 1980 high of $850, it has not kept up with inflation. Had that happened, it would be $2,275.99 today.
Not one hundred in the United States hate the Roman Catholic Church, but millions hate what they mistakenly think the Roman Catholic Church is. -- Bishop Fulton J. Sheen
To be truly alive is to be transformed from within, open to the energy of God’s love. In accepting the power of the Holy Spirit you too can transform your families, communities and nations. Benedict XVI
