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:

Time for Change in Minnesota

I wrote Sen. Amy Klobuchar to express my strong opposition to the current health care bill that she voted for in the Senate. In her response she was quick to point out how she "saved" Minnesotans $18 Billion in new taxes on medical device manufacturers. What she didn't highlight was that she voted FOR adding $20 Billion in new taxes TO medical device manufacturers, some of which are based right here in Minnesota. This is everything from pacemakers to tongue depressors.

Of course, in reality, they won't pay those taxes. They'll just raise the prices on all the devices and you and I will pay for them through higher insurance rates, higher hospital costs and through more taxes for Medicaid and Medicare.

So, in other words, to supposedly lower the cost of healthcare, the Demwits have just raised the prices on a significant portion of our healthcare products!

Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg on the new, onerous taxes that we will ALL be paying shortly if the Demwits in Congress have their way on Sunday. Taxes we will begin paying IMMEDIATELY, but will have to wait four years for any possible benefits (and then I wouldn't hold your breath!)

So, I think it's time to begin the campaign to get rid of those who vote for things NOT in the best interest of Minnesota....or the United States, for that matter. I'm brainstorming some ideas and came up with this one!

I think it would look great along I-694 and I-35 near Medtronic's headquaters. What do you think?

Obama: The Smartest President Ever!

We learned yesterday that Obamacare will result in a 3000% decrease in my health insurance premiums.


I spend about $600 a month, or $7,200 a year. Just a 100% reduction would save me $7,200. But now Obama is going to have my insurer give me another $208,800 per year ($7,200 times 2900%.)

This is going to be awesome!

Does anyone still think this man is as smart as we were led to believe back during the election??

You know, back when he had visited 57 of our 58 states?

Since then we've learned the Marine Corpse has corpsemen.

Had George Bush or, perhaps, Dan Quayle made such an idiotic gaffe, it would be recited by every news outlet endlessly for decades to come!

But when the Annointed One continually sticks his foot in his mouth, reporters all just look around nervously and pretend they didn't hear it!

It's becoming painfully obvious that we have nothing but an empty suit in the White House, a mere puppet dangling on the strings of Andy Stern and the SEIU, along with George Soros and their socialist/communists friends who have put him there.

He's well on the way to making FDR look not so bad....and we know the long-term damage he inflicted on America.

Friday, March 12, 2010 Deformed Healthcare Reform

From's newsletter:

Deformed health care reform
Many conservatives, including Heritage Foundation experts, have been arguing that the President's supposedly "fresh" 11-page health care proposal is virtually no different from the Senate bill. It's true. The President's draft includes most of the same bad proposals that the Senate bill does. But there is one key difference between the two: The Senate bill actually exists.

Until the President's proposal is drafted as official legislation, the only proposal the House can and will consider is the bill the Senate passed. But the differences between the Senate bill and the one that cleared the House are stark.

To get their bill through the House, Senate liberals and the White House are offering some flaky "fixes." As Heritage's Conn Carroll explains:

The "fixes" that the White House is promising wavering House Democrats they will make all sound easy at first glance: 1) scaling back the tax on high-end health insurance policies; 2) closing the Medicare D loophole; 3) boosting insurance subsidies; 4) increasing Medicaid payments; and 5) fixing the Cornhusker Kickback. But when you take a second look, you see that all of these "fixes" will cost more money. Just look at the Cornhusker Kickback which the President chose to address, not by taking away Nebraska's special Medicaid payments, but by extending those extra Medicaid payments to every state! Every single item in the President's proposal either increases spending or reduces new revenues. And he didn't put forward any way to pay for them. If passing health reform were as easy as giving away free candy, Obamacare would be law already. Finding a way to pay for all these fixes is going to be just as difficult as every earlier effort to pay for this bill. So don't expect any solutions anytime soon.

This doesn't even begin to address abortion, a major roadblock the Senate bill faces in the House. Fox News reports that a coalition of seven House Democrats, led by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), has threatened to kill Obamacare altogether if federal funding for abortion is not explicitly prohibited in the final legislation, as it is in the House bill.

So, to appease their colleagues, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are offering a "pie-crust promise" -- easily made and easily broken -- to remove abortion language after the House vote during the Senate's reconciliation process. Is this realistic, though? "Never before in the history of the 34-year abortion funding debate have pro-life members of Congress approved a bill containing abortion funding on the promise that a subsequent vote will fix the problem," Heritage expert Chuck Donovan argues. In short, the left is resorting to bad procedure to advance an even worse health care policy.

Instead of rushing the process with oddly-structured concessions, and instead of passing the bill to "find out what's in it," as Speaker Pelosi argued, lawmakers should focus on starting over. The American people support health care reform, just not this one.

A better idea would be a reform that upholds core American principles. For example, our experts advocate a state-based approach to reform. "Home-grown reforms tailored to the prevailing conditions in the states make the most sense," writes Heritage health care expert Bob Moffit. So let's start over by allowing states to "compete in the arena of health policy and see which ones best achieve the nation's universal health care goals.
