One Nation Rally Proves Glenn Beck is Correct

Glenn Beck has told us repeatedly that there are more of us conservatives than there are liberals. They just have a perceived strength due to their dominance of mainstream (lame-stream?) media outlets and Hollywood which magnifies their significance in American life. Well, along comes the One Nation Rally to prove Glenn correct: Some 400 Leftist organizations* come together to sponsor a rally in response to Glenn Beck's 8/28 "Restoring Honor" rally. (Obviously, you must take a stand against honor being restored in America!) With a laundry-list of Unions requiring attendance by their members, and every environmental and communist organization in the country banding together in a show of force, they managed to get MAYBE a quarter of the crowd Glenn drew....and that's probably very generous. The photos speak for themselves.

View them here:

Notice all the green grass NOT being covered by a Leftist in the second photo? So don't be fooled. We still outnumber the militant Leftists by four-to-one AT LEAST! Let's get to the polls and vote out ANYONE that events hints at supporting any portion of their liberal agenda!


*Sadly, along side the Communists and the anti-Jewish groups stood the United Methodist Church. For you few Bible-believing Methodists still left in the UMC, it's time to start looking for a true Christian church to attend. Regrettably, they've left Biblical principles and YOU behind in their push forward into radical liberalism.

Why Mark Dayton is wrong again!

Mark Dayton, the bored Trust Fund Baby who is perpetually running for a political office he's woefully incompetent to hold, is on the campaign trail again with one of the oldest class-envy schticks the Democrats have relied on for generations: Make the Rich Pay Their Fair Share.

Now, no one can really define what their "fair" share is, considering the top 20% pay 80% of the taxes. Do they think they should pay ALL the taxes and let the rest of us live tax free? Would that be "fair"?

The reality is, this Democrat/Dayton forumula has been tried time and time again with disasterous results.

Here's the tax realities in a report from the Congressional Budget office:

The overwhelming majority of federal income taxes are paid by the highest income earners with the top 1% of income earners paying approximately 32% of all income taxes. The top 5% pays 51.4% while top 10% of high income earners, pay 63.5%. Drop to the top 20% of income earners and you find they pay 78% of all federal income taxes.

So it's the the old 80/20 Rule in action...80% of the federal government bill is paid by 20% of the workers.

So let's see how the "Tax the Rich" concept works in the real world: From the Wall Street Journal:

Here's a two-minute drill in soak-the-rich economics:

Maryland couldn't balance its budget last year, so the state tried to close the shortfall by fleecing the wealthy. Politicians in Annapolis created a millionaire tax bracket, raising the top marginal income-tax rate to 6.25%. And because cities such as Baltimore and Bethesda also impose income taxes, the state-local tax rate can go as high as 9.45%. Governor Martin O'Malley, a dedicated class warrior, declared that these richest 0.3% of filers were "willing and able to pay their fair share." The Baltimore Sun predicted the rich would "grin and bear it."

One year later, nobody's grinning. One-third of the millionaires have disappeared from Maryland tax rolls. In 2008 roughly 3,000 million-dollar income tax returns were filed by the end of April. This year there were 2,000, which the state comptroller's office concedes is a "substantial decline." On those missing returns, the government collects 6.25% of nothing. Instead of the state coffers gaining the extra $106 million the politicians predicted, millionaires paid $100 million less in taxes than they did last year -- even at higher rates.

Surprise, surprise....stick someone with more of the bill and they decide to leave!

So if we end up with Governor Mark "Moonbat" Dayton as governor of Minnesota and has his way, be prepared for even more revenue shortfalls as we drive those who are paying the bills out of the state.

She wants to be President...

I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her parents beamed.

"Wow...what a worthy goal." I told her, "But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and rake my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guys hang out, and you can give them the $50 to use toward food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why don't the homeless guys come over and do the work, and you can just pay them the $50?"

I shook her hand and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

...Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

Glenn Beck - Is Obama a socialist?

The Barack Obama story is actually a pretty sad one. No wonder he has such a screwed up world view.

It's amazing this wasn't covered in detail two years ago. If he'd been a Republican or any other party than Democrat, I'm sure he would have been fully covered!

If you didn't see Beck's show on him, check out his summary here:
