America’s Independent Women

"The Third-Term Panic", by Thomas Na...

I have been asked to speak on Chelene Nightingale’s behalf at Los Angeles City College during their Voter Ed seminar that they will be presenting on November 1st at 1pm. Chelene Nightingale is the American Independent Party gubernatorial candidate (Note: What a funny word-gubneratorial. Does that make all our governors-goobers? LOL) I have been officially allowed by her campaign to speak on her behalf, so it is just not me going out there as a supporter but it is in a somewhat official capacity as well.

If you look closely at this race, you will see a large number of women running for public office. We have two women running for governor and neither one is a Democrat. We have two women running for the Senate seat. Men seem almost non-existent in this race. Women and minorities have come to realize that the Democratic policies –which were supposed to make their lives better and provide equality–have failed miserably. Because of this those who were before beholden to the Democratic Party are beginning to reject it.

This has led women (and men) to leave the failing two party system and seek out other alternative third parties. While the Dems and GOP continue to fight among themselves, people are looking towards creating and promoting already established third parties. Let the Dems and Republicans mock this growing movement. As Mahatma Ghandi once said:  “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” We are going to win and it will be those “independent” breed of women and men that bring it to pass.

It has been an honor to work with Chelene’s campaign manager, Dani. She has been quite a  help as I try to promote Chelene as the best candidate we have for governor. Why is she the best candidate you ask? In my opinion she is the best candidate she has the best vision for California and has a plan on how to get us there. She wants to give homeschooling parents, a tax credit.  She wants to bring jobs back to California by giving small businesses tax incentives and tax breaks. She wants to halt illegal immigration by attrition. By forcing illegals to go back home, there will be more needed services for those who are in this country legally and its citizens. These reforms are needed to get this state back on its feet again.

I think it is imperative that we stop looking to the broken two party system, which is really the one party system, and start coming up with new ways to impact our government. Whether Chelene wins or loses she is taking a stand and putting the politicians on notice. We don’t need politicians, we need public servants and I feel that is what Chelene Nightingale brings to the table, more so than her rivals.

Cali’s Garage Sale

Arnold Schwarzenegger[In her best announcer voice] Everything must go people! That’s right-one day, tons of sales! We are selling our jobs overseas, good education and pretty much our souls. So come one, come all-you are sure to get a heck of a deal!

While that may not be what they are really selling-at least on Craigslist or ebay-California is having a garage sale to generate funds for the state. Has it really come to this, are we really so bad off as the eighth largest economy in the world (not in America but in the world!) that we need to sell our dirty laundry on ebay. And I do mean dirty laundry-they are selling old prison uniforms. And who exactly is going to buy old prison uniforms anyway? Maybe an ex con who is all misty eyed about the good ol’ days in Folsom or San Quentin. San Quentin-Death Row-East BlockThey are selling cars, laptop computers, everything that they can get their hands on.  While it might be a clever idea and a way to eliminate some of the waste and clutter California has collected, [California must be the “Pack Rat State” because I, myself am a huge packrat, hate to throw anything away.  I also have many a friends with the same affliction. Maybe it is something in our water that makes us hold onto everything for dear life. ] it is not even going to make a dent in the deficit we have accumulated as well. At the present time, it is being projected we have a deficit of $26 billion.

Cal WorthingtonObvious ly the Governator has run out of ideas.  He has become a joke of a governor and a business man. He has become of the Cal Worthington of statesmen. For the three of you who don’t live or who have never lived in Southern California, Cal Worthington is a used car salesman. He owns a  lot called Worthington Ford. He had television commercials about standing on his head to make you a deal and he had a “dog” Spot who was usually a monkey, elephant, lion or some other wild animal. Actually as a child, I loved his commercials they made me laugh and brought a smile to my face. He is still selling his cars today.  The difference between Cal Worthington and most politicians is that Cal Worthington would honestly give you a good deal.

The idea for the garage sale came from one of his Twitter followers (ah yes, the brilliance of Twitter!) 

After signing the order to reduce the state’s 40,000 government vehicles by 15 percent, Schwarzenegger posted a video message thanking his Twitter followers for their budget-balancing ideas, including one follower’s suggestion to autograph state-owned vehicles being put up for auction.

“You come up with the great ideas. Why not just sign the cars since you’re a celebrity governor? Sign the cars and sell it for more money,” the governor said in the video where he was seen sitting at his desk in the state Capitol admiring a 2-foot-long folding knife before addressing viewers. “That’s exactly what we’re going to do.” [Judy Lin, Associated Press Writer,  Friday, August 28, 2009]

Garage SaleFrom there it grew into a full-fledged “garage sale.”  And even if every citizen, illegal alien and unborn fetus showed up, gave the state all their money at which point I got about 5 bucks to get to school for the next 3 days, it wouldn’t end the deficit and it sure wouldn’t end the reckless spending that politicians have become famous for.

When did our government stop being about the governance of its people and turn into the annoyance of its people. With its constant striving to take over every area of our lives from industry, healthcare and education, we are left with very few liberties left. [Side note: A liberty by the way is what the government is supposed to stay out of,  a right is what the government is supposed to enforce. Of course, with liberties and rights, the two can intertwine and get sticky but that is the general take on the two.] It seems like such nonsense like this garage sale is not just limited to California. After all, Cash for Clunkers is basically the same thing-Congress going Worthington Ford on the nation!

One person referred to Cash for Clunkers as abortion for autos. Since after you turn in your vehicle they have to destroy it and cannot resell it. Yet here we are reselling SUVs and other vehicles that Cash for Clunkers is trying to destroy.  The whole thing is turning into some very bad game show and if it wasn’t our future on the line, I might have a good laugh at all this. It just shows how truly far we have fallen. As a state and as a nation.

P.S. Thank you liberals for all your inanely insipid ideas and turning this country into a vast wasteland! You have done a bang up job destroying America!

Kathleen Sebelius Signs Pro-Life Bill

kathleen1According to The Wichita Eagle:  “Gov. Kathleen Sebelius signed a bill late Friday that would allow women to see an ultrasound or hear a fetal heartbeat before receiving an abortion.” Kansas Governor has been a huge proponent for abortion and has never met an abortionist she didn’t like. She even threw a reception for George “The Killer” Tiller who recently was acquitted of doing illegal late term abortions.

She is no friend to the pro life community and we know the only reason she signed this bill was not to look overly zealous. Maybe Obama should try that! The opponents of the bill said:  “the measure would interfere with the doctor-patient relationship and a woman’s personal decision.” What? That doesn’t even border on the logical.  Just once I would like to hear a pro abortion argument that at least borders on the rational! Well, I won’t hold my breath.  I would really like to know how relaying information about a procedure is “interfering with the doctor-patient relationship!” That is what a doctor is SUPPOSED TO DO! GIVE YOU INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL DECISIONS!!!! If giving such information is interference how long before cardiologists, oncologists and other doctors try saying that giving us all the facts about chemo, heart surgery and other procedures “interferes” with their “relationship” with us! Had they allowed that argument to stand (and thank goodness they didn’t!) it would’ve had a catastrophic consequence in the real field of medicine because any doctor could then say they didn’t inform their patient about the side effects because it would’ve had a bearing on the person’s personal decision and would’ve interefered with their relationship!

When I was pregnant, the doctor suggested I do an amnio. I was given information regarding the amnio and even the remote possibility of it killing my child. I was then able to think about whether I should or should not do it. At no point did having this information “interfere with the doctor-patient relationship” and at no time did it interfere with my “personal decision.” The opponents can’t say the real reason they don’t want it. When women see the sonogram they change their minds! They won’t go through the abortion and that means they lose money! It is not about the women, it is about the greedy abortionists!

Even though I know Gov. Sebelius didn’t do this out of any sort of humanity on her part (she would have to have some first) and did it solely to save face and for political gain, I am glad women will be allowed to see the sonograms of their babies, this will save a lot of lives. I guess even a she-devil like Sebelius can do good once in awhile.

Roland Burris Being Asked To Resign

burrisJim Durkin is asking Roland Burris to resign his seat due to contradictory statements made during Rod Blagojevitch’s impeachment hearing.  He also wants him investigated for perjury.  Gov. Pat Quinn is also calling for an explanation as well.

In an Associated Press article, Rupa Shenoy writes: “Sen. Roland Burris admitted in a document released Saturday that former Gov. Rod Blagojevitch’s brother asked him for campaign fundraising help before the governor appointed Burris to the Senate. The disclosure is at odds with Burris’ testimony in January when an Illinois House impeachment committee specifically asked if he had ever spoken to Robert Blagojevich or other aides to the now-deposed governor about the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama.” (Associated Press. “Illinois GOP Leaderships Calls On Sen. Burris to Resign”.  Rupa Shenoy. February 16, 2009)

It has always been my contention that Roland Burris if he had any moral fiber at all should not have even entertained the notion of accepting the seat that had been the cause of scandal.  If he had any integrity, he would’ve told them to keep the seat and put it where the sun don’t shine or at the very least waited until another official who had the power to seat him offered it to him.  By allowing himself to be associated with Blagojevitch and then to possibly perjure himself he has done more to tarnish his reputation and the U.S. Senate then had he been wise to refuse the offer from the onset.

The B.O. presidency continues t be plagued by these type of scandal. There hasn’t been one day during his short tenure that someone hasn’t been caught doing something underhanded.  So much for that transparent presidency he told us about huh? Of course, I knew better because I could already see through him. It is just too bad the rest of America couldn’t.  So now we must find yet another Senator for the great state of Illinois. Will these troubles never cease?

Sarah Palin is One Hot Mama!

This video combines Trace Adkins-who I love-and Sarah Palin-who totally rocks!   I went and checked out the site and it is basically the same pictures you see here so it i is not some kind of trap that then goes and blast Sarah Palin.

I love this song because it is time the Mommas of the world were made to feel like they were still desirable.  Not to all the creeps in the world but to the men they have married and pledged their lives to. Sure it might be a bit on the corny side but it is an anthem for all the Hot Mamas out there!

Oh one more thing, congratulations Bristol on your baby boy. I hope he brings you years of joy! So I guess the Palin brood now has two hot Mamas in it. LOL

Obama Clears Himself Of Wrongdoing

obama-and-blagojevichAccording to Yahoo News!  “President-elect Barack Obama said Monday a review by his own lawyer shows he had no direct contact with Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich about the appointment of a Senate replacement, and transition aides did nothing inappropriate.”  Hmm yet here is a picture with him and Gov. Blagojevich, but he had no direct contact with him.  Okay so standing two feet from him is no direct contact-who knew?

You have really got to love the cojones on this man. I have never in my life run across someone so bold as to clear himself of wrongdoing.
It is one thing for the  prosecution to issue a statement like this on Obama’s behalf but for his own lawyers to issue it-well what do you expect them to say? Oh yeah we found all kinds of contact between Obama, his aides and Gov. Blagojevich! Give me a break.  I mean basically, Obama got his lawyers on the phone, told them to “investigate” this whole Blago nightmare and surprise they came back and said, “You’re cleared Mr. Obama.”mean-looking-obama1

Wow! I didn’t know you could do that. I thought some outside and impartial agency had to investigate and draw their own conclusions.So now I am supposed to rest easy because Obama’s lawyers said “he’s innocent.” Yeah right and I am a neurosurgeon. Do you really expect me to believe that Obama had nothing to do with his seat being up for sale? Come on, Obama is aware of everything that goes on in his circle of influence. If it was me, you better believe I would have the G-men breathing down my neck day and night. The press hounding me and the police being my own personal escort each time I stepped out of my house. But Obama has not only cleared himself. He is holding off on answering questions to the public declaring he doesn’t want to interfere with the investigation. But Obama you just said you did an investigation-you mean the criminal justice system just doesn’t take your word. Perish the thought.

Obama has called for Blagojevich to resign. Like that is going to make us go, “Well of course, Obama is innocent. He wants him to resign.” If I was up to my ears in scandals, I would be showboating and asking him to resign too. It is called damage control. According the Associated Press, “There are no suggestions that Obama or his aides were involved in the alleged sale of his seat. Fitzgerald has said prosecutors were making no allegations that Obama was aware of any scheming. And Blagojevich himself, in taped conversations cited by prosecutors, suggested Obama wouldn’t be helpful to him and called him a vulgar term. Even if the governor were to appoint a candidate favored by the Obama team, Blagojevich said, “they’re not willing to give me anything except appreciation.”

Well of course not, just because Blagojevich is a moron doesn’t mean Obama is. He knows how to play the game. You think you are going to find Obama’s fingerprints all over this-not by a longshot. Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t expect Obama not to call his lawyers in.That wouldn’t be smart. And I don’t expect his lawyers to sit back and let law enforcement do all the investigating. But at the same time don’t expect me to buy the notion because his $500 an hour lawyers declare there is no connection that I am just going to accept it as fact.  I tell you what when the DOJ has provided irrefutable proof that Obama in no shape or form is responsible for this scheme, I will believe it then.

A Sarah Palin Tribute — Part 2

Well my friends, my good buddy-David Bozeman- has written another thought-provoking article on Sarah Palin. And since his last one was so well-received here, I deemed it an honor to post this one as well. Of course, there is one thing that needs to be mentioned here which no one seems to be talking about-well except for Hank Williams Jr.-Sarah just doesn’t govern Alaska, she saved it from the brink of ruin. She has far more experience dealing with a failing economy than Obama has-but America made its choice and it went for the village idiot. Got to love the PSP Generation.A

A Sarah Palin Tribute – Part 2                                                                                                                           by David Bozeman

The true measure of a leader lies not in a gushing dissection of her many attributes but in gauging her effect on others, though in the case of Sarah Palin I could spend all day on both. The truly greats, of course, the Winston Churchills and the Ronald Reagans, embody ideals much bigger than themselves and are definable not by the latest CNN poll numbers but by their legacies. Sarah Palin’s impact on modern conservatism is incalculable, from the mundane — curing a certain someone’s severe case of writer’s block, to the profound — ginning up the conservative base and inspiring special-needs citizens and their families.

She has a gift to, without even trying, bring out the best in those who follow her. She inspired John McCain, for instance, to choose her and not Joe Lieberman or Tom Ridge. A brilliant move and he looked better with her on the ticket. She saved a Republican Party teetering on the brink of oblivion. Unfortunately, she could not undo in nine weeks what the party had done to itself for the better part of eight years, but she bought us time.

She has paid for the time with undeniable, hypnotic likability. Watching her in her warm, homey kitchen, cooking and washing her hands during a Greta Van Susteren interview on Fox News is the modern-day equivalent for certain political junkies of wishing you were a Brady kid. And because we like her we want to protect her. Even this owly, bookish type has become quite chivalrous — criticize me if you want, knock George W. Bush and I’ll say nothing, but don’t mess with Sarah. Conservative women, who well know that she is tough and can take care of herself, see her as a little sister they want to look out for.
Once you protect her, and because she defines authenticity, you are upholding her’s — and your own — values: common sense, rugged self-reliance, traditional family, faith, etc.

She not only personifies, she rouses an ideal in American life that owes as much to populism as to conservatism, the notion that everyday, small-town Americans cannot only beat City Hall but run it. If she were a liberal Democrat, her meteoric climb would be celebrated like a modern day Mr. Smith Goes to Washington or Farmers’s Daughter, the 1947 Oscar winner (starring the now underrated Loretta Young) about a housekeeper whose homespun wisdom and integrity catapult her to Congress.

But, of course, in 2008, Washington-media culture is predominantly liberal, so she must be stopped. A pro-life, PTA mom from a hick town 3000-plus miles from the New York-Washington-Ivy League corridor threatens the ruling class that thinks that they and they alone possess the brain power and moral certitude to mold public policy. Joe the Plumber may not have been the spawn of Sarah Palin, but he backtalked the anointed leader and then joined the McCain/Palin campaign. This temper tantrum must be nipped in the bud lest the other children in flyover country think they can govern themselves, too.

Beyond ideology, the Sarah Palins of the world are the incubators, not just of the next generation, but, as Camille Paglia noted, of the next generation of feminism. Aging, unmarried feminists may produce the dogma, but the Sarah Palins are making babies and instilling values.

It is not just that their values jibe seamlessly with their lives — their values are the right ones. America may occasionally need tweaking and bumper sticker platitudes promising hope and change may win the day. But certain cornerstones never crumble, namely faith and family. Sarah Palin — and the millions of moms she inspires — is not just a conduit, she is a cradle. She is a great governor, but it is the woman who fills the arenas.
