It's Crunch Time For Defeating Socialized Medicine

The Socialized medicine plan being pushed by the Democrats will DESTROY our health care delivery system. Are there any intelligent people here who think we can do this better than Canada or Great Britain? Those systems are crashing FAILURES!

Why would anyone think that the same bunch of THIEVES who've bankrupted Social Security and Medicare will treat an even bigger program with more responsibility?

**Sign these petitions, contact your congressman, and help reform our system in CONSTRUCTIVE ways. It's now or never!

Hands Off My Health Care!

Lobbyists, unions, and politicians in Washington are trying to seize control of our health care. Patients like us have been left out. We can’t sit by and let this happen, or else we lose:

--Our choice of doctors
--All control of our health insurance options
--Timely access to quality health care
--Money by paying for a government takeover

Ben Stein on Religious Tolerance and Societal Decay.

Way to go Ben Stein! I got this e-mail today. Tell me if it doesn't apply now more than ever. In this picture he looks just like my dad.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. (Amen brother Stein!!) I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.
Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'

In light of recent events; terrorists attacks, school shootings, and the like, I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said okay.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

It's funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,
Ben Stein

March For Liberty, Washington DC.

The last time I visited our nation's capitol, I didn't feel like a besieged minority. George Herbert Walker Bush--American hero--was the new President and the great Ronald Reagan's governing apparatus was still in place. Yes, government was already far too large and intrusive, but Americans knew they had an administration with good intentions where their freedoms were concerned.

Lord help us, how times have changed. We are under siege!

Yesterday Nanette and I joined 6-9 thousand of our fellow patriots and gathered at the Capitol Lawn to vent our anger at an out-of-control government. CNN estimated the crowd at 2000, but we know how they lie. There were hundreds of yellow Gadsden flags ("Don't Tread On Me") flying everywhere and cleverly worded signs from every corner of this great republic. They even captured yours truly wearing a white t-shirt, holding a sign and watching the nutty Paulistas yell at CNN's reporters. A few of them were truly frightened as the Paulistas screamed "state run media!" and surrounded them. This is me holding the left side of a banner and staring to my left:

Twenty minutes later I gathered some guys and we helped the CNN people get safely out of the screaming lunatics. Thanks Paulistas for the "9-11 Was An Inside Job" signs! These lunatics didn't help our cause in the least. The overwhelming majority of the crowd were regular people from ALL walks of life who felt that something was wrong in Washington, and they're RIGHT!

Here are some of my favorite signs from the protest:


Proud to be on THIS government's watchlist!

Freedom YES! Socialism NO!

Only Dead Fish Follow the Flow. Wake up America!

I'll follow later today with more thoughts from our trip to DC. Thanks!

I Need Sign/Placard Suggestions!

Nanette and I are going to Washington D.C. tomorrow to march in the 4th of July tea party in our nation's capitol. We're going to send a loud and clear message to the cleptocrats that we are fed up with the HORRENDOUS abuses of power taking place in the Congress and the White House.

Here's where I could use the help of all you clever conservatives. We'll be carrying signs approximately 20x30 inches. We need good messages, that are between 2 and 18 words long for the purpose of clarity. We'll carry one each, and give the other good ideas to other marchers.

Thanks in advance for all your help, and get out there and PROTEST our abusive and out-of-control government on July 4th!!!!
