Urine or You're Out

From my wife's friend:

(Whoever wrote this one deserves a HUGE pat on the back!)
Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem. What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to pass a urine test.

Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ass doing drugs, while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?
Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though. . Some thing has to change in this country -- and soon!!!!!!!

I guess we could title that program, 'Urine or You're Out'.

ISRA Alert: This is a Great Weekend to Buy a Gun

From the Illinois State Rifle Association:

The ISRA is recommending that all law-abiding Americans celebrate their 2nd Amendment rights by purchasing a firearm or two this weekend. This recommendation comes as firearm dealers across the nation are reporting record jumps in sales of rifles, pistols and shotguns. Likewise, the FBI reports that requests for gun-buyer background checks are coming in at a frenzied pace.

This plus-up in gun purchases is being attributed to President-elect Obama's demonstrated hostility toward firearm owners and well-founded fears that his administration will implement Chicago-style gun controls across the United States.

"This is a perfect weekend to go out and buy a gun," commented ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson. "There are only 9 more weekends until Obama is sworn in. After that, it's anybody's guess as to how many more weekends after that that gun sales will still be permitted. If you've been putting off purchasing your first firearm, do it now while you are able. If you're a long time shooter that has been dreaming about a certain rifle or pistol, buy it this weekend or you may soon have only your dreams to fall back on. Buy a gun now, because there may be no tomorrow for the 2nd Amendment."

"During the presidential campaign, voters were fed a line of bull about Obama's 'respect' for the 2nd Amendment - and a lot of well-meaning gun owners swallowed it," continued Pearson. "Well, that 'respect' was apparently very short-lived. Just two days after the election, the Obama transition web site listed a host of gun control objectives including a ban on semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns. Interestingly, once this list of controls drew public attention, it was promptly removed from the site with out explanation."

"The handwriting is on the wall," said Pearson. "It's a safe bet that the Obama administration will move swiftly to stifle the 2nd Amendment. Some gun owners take comfort in the assumption that Congress is too shy to pass the Obama gun control agenda. The truth of the matter is, Obama doesn't need the Congress to do his dirty work. His executive powers grant him a host of administrative options that would be equally effective in making private gun ownership a thing of the past."

"The best defense against the Obama Gun Grabbing Machine is a solid show of force by law-abiding gun owners," said Pearson. "The most forceful display of support for gun rights is for citizens to enthusiastically exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. By keeping the gun shop cash registers ringing and the FBI background check computers humming, citizens will send a very clear message that they do not take challenges to their rights lightly."

The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. Founded in 1903, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

I'm planning to do my part and make a purchase. What about you?


ISRA Alert: County County Phone Poll For Gun Control Ordinance Is Still Active

Larry Suffredin and his cohorts on the Cook County Board are up to their old tricks again.

In order to justify passage of gun control ordinances designed to close all gun shops and ban and confiscate most guns owned by citizens of the county, the Cook County Board is conducting a telephone poll where callers can vote for or against the gun control ordinances.

Like everything else in Cook County, this poll is probably rigged. So, it’s very important that you do the following:

  1. Call 1-312 -603-6400 and select Option #1 when prompted. At the next prompt, select Option #1 again. Then, when prompted to vote on the gun control ordinance, press #2.
  2. You should also forward this alert on to all your gun owning friends and have them vote too.
  3. You should also post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards or blogs to which you belong.


Let’s beat Suffredin at his own game! And, save your guns.

I joined the resistance

I am not going to sit by silently as Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid re-make our nation in their liberal image.

That's why I just joined a grassroots conservative effort to RESIST Obama's liberal agenda. Please go here to join with me:

Oppurtunity vs Misery

Today we make a choice. On one hand we have the chance at opportunity through less restriction and lower taxes (John McCain). On the other hand we have equal misery by punishing those that may have been successful with more restrictions and higher taxes (B. Hussein Obama).

Here are some additional resources to consider before voting today:

Change we need?

Another interesting hidden truth from B. Hussein Obama - "Change We Need". Think about those words for just a minute. Let's decode the words behind the slogan:

  • Change = Your money
  • We = big government
  • Need = takes away from you

So, "Change We Need" is liberal code speak for "Your money big government takes away from you". Clearly this means that B. Hussein Obama is running on the typical liberal premise that the road to prosperity is higher taxes.

Like other liberals before him, B. Hussein Obama is no different in thinking that he can tax the Country into prosperity. Has there ever been any evidence of that actually working? No, none that I can find. Quite the contrary, history has clearly shown that lower taxes lead to greater prosperity for all, including the government!


The party of equal misery

Democrats will commonly use the term "redistribution of wealth". This is liberal code speak for "you have too much and you must be punished". Liberals are always talking about new ways of punishing (taxing) those that have some money (most often "rich" people and "big" business).

The fable of Robin Hood tries to glorify the "redistribution of wealth" concept. In reality, one who steals is a criminal. It really doesn't matter who you steal from.

A place where I have seen "equal misery" in action: Union offices. Here's a place where I would have expected to see the happiest people you could find. I couldn't been more wrong. The truth is that these are some of the most grumpy people around. Why is this so, you ask? By punishing the employer ("big" business) you bring about equal misery for all.

When I discussed this with my wife, she references "The Secret". She says that by thinking that money is in short supply and coveting the money of others your are thinking negatively and bringing on the shortage (misery) yourself.

What does this all mean? More taxes = more misery. Less taxes = less misery. Which would you choose?
