Fox News Highlights the Kings of Pork and More



Dear Robert,

Because you have taken such a strong stand with us against pork-barrel spending, I wanted to alert you to a FOX News investigative special, hosted by Chris Wallace.

I was told FOX reporters expose more than a colossal waste of your tax dollars from pork-spending lawmakers, but also a fattening of their bank accounts!

This is a FOX exclusive not to be missed!

WHAT: Porked: Earmarks for Profit
WHEN: Saturday, May 31 at 8pm ET
WHERE: FOX News Channel

Untied Against Homeskooled Kidz

What idiot thinks that excluding home schooled children is a good idea? See:

Both California and Tennessee have done their best to shut down the home school movement in the past year. First California made it illegal to home school children unless the person teaching the child could show grade level certification. Then Tennessee’s Board of Education ruled that diplomas from home school affiliated organizations were invalid to show proof of high school graduation.

Now, Subway has gotten involved. The sandwich restaurant chain is holding a competition called “Every Sandwich Tells a Story.” Children can win prizes for their schools. But, the rules state, “Contest is open only to legal residents of the Untied States who are currently over the age of 18 and have children who attend elementary, private or parochial schools that serve grades PreK-6. No home schools will be accepted.” [Emphasis added]

Doesn't this show just how afraid government sponsored schools (public schools, for those readers in Rio Linda) are of home schooling? Like virtually every government agency, they are deathly afraid of compitition. Only in public schools do they strive to achieve the lowest possible level of achievement (think, "outcome based education"). I guess they know that there isn't a Spelling Bee win in sight until home schooling is eliminated.

This is just my guess, but, I suspect that home schooling yields more conservatives than liberals. Of course, the liberals won't stand for that...

You Can't Appease Everybody


After decades of comparing Nixon to Hitler, Reagan to Hitler and Bush to Hitler, liberals have finally decided it is wrong to make comparisons to Hitler. But the only leader to whom they have applied their newfound rule of thumb is: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

While Ahmadinejad has not done anything as starkly evil as cut the capital gains tax, he does deny the Holocaust, call for the destruction of Israel, deny the existence of gays in Iran and refuses to abandon his nuclear program despite protests from the United Nations. That's the only world leader we're not allowed to compare to Hitler.

Kudos to Congressman Green


I also want to take the time to congratulate a principled Democratic Representative who had the courage to break with his party leadership last week on the issue of domestic energy production.

Congressman Gene Green (D-TX) told CNBC, "We also need more exploration. But we really need to get more oil to the market, particularly from our own country. The best signal we can send to OPEC and anywhere else in the world is maybe not filing a lawsuit against them but actually saying 'we are going to start producing in our own country.'"

All Americans who are concerned about out-of-control prices and our vulnerability to energy blackmail by foreign dictators should appreciate and acknowledge Congressman Green's stand. The only question left is the one posed to Green by the CNBC anchor: "Can you convince the other wings of your party to think like you do?"

Good job Mr Green!


Oppose the 1.2 Trillion Dollar "Carbon Tax"


Next week, the Senate is set to begin debate on a bill that will raise the price of gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil and aviation fuel. (view this Heritage Foundation state-by-state breakdown to find out how much Warner Lieberman will cost you).

It's the Warner-Lieberman global warming bill, and its supporters are as misguided and out-of-touch with the American people as the supporters of last spring's immigration amnesty bill - and we all remember how that turned out.

There are two things you can do now to fight back.

First, call or email your Senator and tell him or her to vote "no" on Warner-Lieberman - "no" on raising the cost of driving to work, heating your home, and feeding your family.

Second, visit and sign our "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" petition. The petition is simple but powerful. It says:
We, therefore, the undersigned citizens of the United States, petition the U.S. Congress to act immediately to lower gasoline prices by authorizing the exploration of proven energy reserves to reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources from unstable countries.

And with your help, as the Senate begins to debate Warner-Lieberman, American Solutions will present the names of 100,000 of their constituents who will hold them accountable if they fail to allow America the freedom to use its own energy resources instead of relying on foreign dictators.

Americans truly have a choice - a choice between the Pay More, Send More Money to Foreign Dictators and Cripple America Left and the Produce More, Enjoy More, Pay Less, Strengthen American Center-Right Majority. Make your choice by visiting

Can I count on you to do your part to lower gas prices (and taxes)?


Every adult to carry "Carbon Ration Card"

From the "Governments' going too far department" (as reported by

The Daily Mail is reporting that Britain's Environmental Audit Committee is pushing the idea that "every adult should be forced to use a 'carbon ration card' when they pay for petrol, airline tickets or household energy."

Climate Alarmism in England has gotten so bad that the British face the prospects of having to punch their "carbon card" every time they fill up or fly a plane!

The next thing to expect is that our Democratic-controlled Congress will jump on this bandwagon and push for a "Carbon Ration Card" here in the US as well. As we well know, the Democrats would hate to miss out on a bad idea that has been forced on people in other countries (they hate to be "left behind"). Of course, there will be an additional "tax" associated with so that "well meaning" Democrats can buy additional "Carbon Rations" (think "Carbon Credits"). Given Al Gore's house, he would be the first in line to get additional "Carbon Rations"...

Help me stop the California anti-marriage ruling

I just signed a petition supporting an emergency suspension of California's outrageous court ruling that sanctioned homosexual marriage. Same-sex marriage licenses will be issued by June 15 at the latest. We have very little time to stop this ruling. Please go here to sign:

The expansion of "Marriage" by the government is very a "slippery slope" sort of issue. At some point, all of these "special cases" will invalidate the original concepts, ruining it for everyone.

Think about it this way:

Shouldn't single people, that have no desire for a "partner" receive the same government benefits? Aren't single people being discriminated against?

We don't need bigger government. If anything, government needs to be smaller. How about we eliminate government sponsored marriage all together? Wouldn't that simplify things?

One Down, Two to Go

Ann Coulter puts it so well:

"Clinton's vice president, Al Gore, lost an election that should have been his in a walk. In fact, he was the first incumbent president or vice president in 100 years to lose an election in peacetime with a good economy. Mind you, that was before we even knew that Gore was a deranged conspiracy theorist who believes the Earth is in serious peril from cow flatulence." ...

Unstoppable Solar Cycles

This is a "must see" video about "climate change". It clearly shows that there are factors at play that are much, much stronger than man in effecting climate change.

The chart showing the relationship between temperature and CO2 is also very interesting. Over the span off 600,000 years, temperature change has always led CO2 change by about 600 years.

I have to wonder what Al Gore thinks of this Video. Obviously, since it flies in the face of his agenda, he would likely pass it off as being false.

The scientists put it best: "Science is about being skeptical. There is a quest to always verify what we know."

What's most important here? Keep politics out out science. I want to see real science applied to this "issue". I'm not at all interested in the false "science" of those groups that are pushing for the "science" to fit their agenda.

Obviously man has an effect on the environment. But, it appears that many appear to think that we are far more powerful than we actually are...

I just saw a piece about Obama on the Fox Report. I didn't hear the audio, so I don't know the context, but, there was a bunch of people holding banners saying "Change".

What came to mind, you ask?

All I could think was "how fitting!" The democrats are famous for taking our dollars and giving us nothing but change (if anything at all). At least Obama is up front about it. I just can't figure out why everyone appeared to be so happy about it.

As far a I am concerned, I just want to keep my dollars...
