'Tis The Season of Indoctrination





As we travel through our day we will see once again the greatest symbol of "The Season of Indoctrination", the School Bus. Our children are being taught by teachers whom were indoctrinated themselves. The Communists have been in our education system for at least 4 generations. They have slowly, step by step, changed the curriculum's of the universities down to the K-12s. Civics is no longer taught in our elementary schools, Social Studies has been boiled down to "polar bears are drowning", and high school History conveniently teaches the victory of the unions over the capitalists and the righteousness of fairness, Socialism. The place to fight this is in our homes. Find the truth, educate yourself and teach your children the real history of our Constitution and our country. Help your children understand the difference between regurgitating information so they can get the grades they need and the actual truth. You may also need to remind them not to try to educate the teachers, because they might be retaliated against through the homework given and the grades given for the work. We have had direct experience of these classroom tactics in my household. We can break the cycle of indoctrination. We can teach our children to search out more than one source for the information they are fed. We can teach them once again to put on their critical thinking caps and judge the truthfulness of the education they are receiving. We are raising the next generation of voters, journalists and politicians. We don't want more of the status quo, do we?

My First Self Flagging

I graced the White House with a very nice Valentine's Day present, me. On 2/14/09 I not only posted:

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
This is the shoddiest piece of work I have ever seen. One would think this was a camel (you know, a horse built by committee). To think our esteemed, educated, and elected officials have presented us (the American people) with a document which resembles a kindergarten class project, is extremely dismaying, let alone disgustingly arrogant. Do you people think we are a bunch of uneducated, unthinking, uncaring oafs? Do you think just because the Constitution of the United States isn't taught in our schools any more, we don't know what it says or what it means? Do you think speaking down to us will placate the people into submission? How dare you think a fancy, expensive and extensive college education means anything more than you can regurgitate on command. No one in our capital is showing the slightest amount of common sense. All we see out here in the real world is just how extensive the corruption really is in our political system and our government. Transparency...sure, sure, that just means "drink the Kool-aid".

I sent this to the White House site. What do you think, is it enough to put me on one of those lists? I really wanted it to be a thorn in their side, but maybe it was just a splinter. I was very happy to send it as it is public record and even if my computer or the Internet crashes, it can still be read by future generations.

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”


Once again proof of the adage, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.” has proven itself timeless.
Being informed has become an exercise in futility if you try to stick to one source. I found two articles on two different days from two different sources that made a giant light bulb (incandescent, of course) shine some light on a confusing maneuver by our Treasury Secretary. Let us examine the information.


First from the Wall Street Journal on August 10, 2009 –

“Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, in a letter to sent to top U.S. lawmakers on Friday, asked Congress to move "as soon as possible" to increase the nation's statutory debt limit. The Treasury estimates that the $12.1 trillion current limit could be reached as soon as mid-October, Mr. Geithner wrote. "It is critically important that Congress act before the limit is reached so that citizens and investors here and around the world can remain confident that the United States will always meet its obligations," Mr. Geithner said in the letter. One issue that will need to be decided is how much of an increase is needed. Mr. Geithner didn't offer a specific figure in his letter to lawmakers. A Treasury official said Monday that the debt increase is due to the deterioration in the economy and not necessarily attributable to spending on stimulus programs or the bailout of the financial system.”


How typical of this administration to not give a definite figure of the increase needed. They just expect everyone to do as they say because they said it. Congress can lay down to that, but the American people don’t like being talked to like they are preschoolers. Our next piece of the pie comes from a financial source.


Bloomberg on August 13,2009 –


“California will stop using IOUs to pay its bills in early September, lifting a burden on businesses, taxpayers and municipalities that received $2 billion of the registered warrants instead of cash as the recession pushed the most-populous U.S. state toward insolvency. Controller John Chiang said the use of IOUs will stop on Sept. 4, pending approval by a panel of state finance officials, and the state would begin redemptions a month ahead of schedule. State Treasurer Bill Lockyer said he plans to sell $1.5 billion of notes by Aug. 28 to meet cash needs, followed by $10.5 billion of such short-term loans in mid-September. With passage of the revised budget, the premium demanded by investors has eased and officials are reviving plans for the short-term note sale -- needed to pave over temporary mismatches between spending and revenue -- that they previously said would be too costly. The controller has issued about 327,000 IOUs worth $1.95 billion since July 2. The registered warrants were set to mature in October and pay an annualized interest rate of 3.75 percent. Lockyer said he plans to borrow the $10.5 billion in mid- September. Proceeds will be used to repay the $1.5 billion initial loan. No decision has been made on what investment banks would manage the sale, treasury spokesman Tom Dresslar said.”


Now, the question presents itself.
Is the Treasury and the Federal Reserve “bailing out” California?

10.5 billion in short term loans, a sell off of 1.5 billion in notes, all of this happening in mid-September and Mr. Geithner informs us that we will reach the debt ceiling by October. There are no investors buying into this crazed California IOU economy. The one place to go is the Federal Reserve. They can keep their books closed as they monetize our debt, set the stage for hyperinflation and we slip farther and farther into an economic black hole. This administration overwhelms the system and they slide scary things by us without our being able to see them. Healthcare has been presented in such a way to get an uprising from the population that we have missed a huge economy killer step and Congress is only to happy to help the White House flush us down the tubes.

White House Bedfellows

Why is the AARP lying to its members? You have the AARP tell Fox News that they do not "endorse" the health care plans of the President, then this commercial runs on Fox this morning! They are obviously snuggled up really close to Obamacare!

Did Grandma Get Scammed?


Interesting tidbits of information are starting to come out regarding the relationship between AARP and the Obama political machine. The faithful members of AARP never knew so much of their money was being filtered so quietly into the hands of the Chicago Political Mob. The President on numerous occasions over the last few weeks has spoken of the "AARP's endorsement" to his health care plan. We first heard of it in his national address of gobbledygook answers, that included a few words about Air Force jets. What in the world do jets have to do with health care? We heard no objections from the AARP on that night, nor any others until the town hall meetings began to get press coverage. When AARP representatives walked out on their own members and a Marine AARP member took over the meeting, it was apparent bitterness was brewing. Our President uses the endorsement line a few more times, AARP's phones are blowing up with membership withdrawls and all of a sudden they decide to do damage control. The problem is they made that decision too late. The money trail to Obama had been sniffed out. How could this have happened? All you have to do is read the bio of the AARP CEO, Mr. A. Barry Rand, and you can see it as plain as the nose on your face. He is and has always been an advocate for "social change". Those two words are starting to have their meaning come out of the shadows and arrogance is putting them in our faces. "Social change" means I should get a job or a promotion or a raise because I am a woman or a minority, not because of my merit. I find it to be demeaning to be recognized in my work because of my gender or color instead of my achievements on their own merit. This man, Mr. Rand, believes (just like Justice Sotomayer) it doesn't matter about your excellence of performance, just making sure everything is "fair" to "minorities". Social change has been a term over used to promote mediocre but compliant sheeple. When people surround themselves with only "yes men" they never hear the truth. The truth is "The Emperor has no clothes", and he has an army of sheeple ready to believe him and not their "lyin' eyes". Mr. Rand is part of the inside circle of the "Emporer", but doesn't want anybody to figure out that fact. If you want to make an impact on these people, you have to hit them in the wallet. Host an AARP card cutting party in your neighborhood and speak out, your voices will be heard at the voting booth.

Fear






Remember, fear can't hurt you but inaction might.


Do not stop standing up.


Do not stop speaking up.


Do not stop writing and calling.


Do not stop voting.


If we have to stop the tyranny one step at a time, we can start locally and work our way up as the elections come around. We can work together to remove the politicians that have forgotten their jobs. We can stand toe to toe with them and win. When we as individuals come together nothing can stop us from reaching our goal. We can have our country back as the Founding Fathers envisioned it. Bullies thrive on weakness and they run when faced with a united front. It is time to send the bullies packing.

A Defining Moment


Let us pause and remember a moment in time that woke up a great many people. This is a subject a few had been discussing for some time, but Rick delivered the passion needed at this defining moment. We rarely get a chance to see, in person, a shift in the paradigm. We were blessed with this flash of clarity and moment of truth.




I humbly bow my head in silent reflection, then grab my "NO OBAMACARE" sign and hit the streets!
