My Labor Day Speech

September 6, 2009

The speech I am giving in Bastrop, Texas on Labor Day.

Let’s all Pledge Allegiance to our Flag.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation, under God, for Liberty and Justice for all.

I have been asked here today to speak to you about Liberty. I could stand here and give you a feel good speech about how much I love my Liberty, my country and my freedom, and while it would all be true, its not the reality of today. Today our reality is not reveling in the liberties promised to us in the Constitution, but yet being violently forced into the direction of fascism and tyranny.

Liberty to me is not just a statue that stands in the harbor in New York

Liberty to me is not just a cracked bell that is housed in Pennsylvania.

Liberty to me is not just a word in the pledge we just said.

In that pledge I stated “with liberty and justice for all”. I mean those words. I want to stand beside all of you and fight for our liberties, to fight for our justice because we all deserve it as Americans.

I want to fight for our liberty to decide who provides my family and my own medical care. I want to be the one who decides how much my life is worth, because as far as I am concerned there is no price that you can put on my life, on my husbands life, or on my parents and grandparents lives.

I want to fight for our liberty to decide who, what, and how our children are taught in our schools. Our children should be taught about what this country was founded upon, about the great leaders of the past, instead of being pawns in a political scheme to lead this country to socialism.

I want to fight for our liberty to speak freely. We should have the ability to speak our minds about this administration because they are accountable to us. We have elected them to represent us. It is NOT the color of our Presidents skin that matters to me, yet how he runs this country and ONLY how he runs this country that matters. Our voices should not be stifled by them, but welcomed. They have called us un-American but what they have forgotten is that the right to speak out against them is not only a right that American was built upon, but it was so important to our founding fathers that they made it the first right.

I want to fight for our liberty to worship freely. When we said that pledge we admitted that this country is under God’s supervision. If you do not believe in God, I feel sorry you do not know His love, but your right to not know him is protected by our Constitution. In the same Constitution our right to worship without fear of persecution is protected as well. We are not extremists for being Christians, however we know the extreme love and protection of our Lord and Savior. No one will ever tell me I cannot worship Him, and I will pray for those who try to do so.

I want to fight for our liberty to have those who control my money be accountable to me. I will not stand for this administration skirting around that accountability by appointing a plethora of Czars to are accountable not to us. These Czars should be scrutinized by us for their actions in the past just as our elected officials are. We do not do this viciously, we do this because anyone who controls any part of our country should be. It is our money and our right to know who is spending it, what they are spending it on, their qualifications to do so, and how it will be spent. Today is labor day, where we remember we labored for our money and it is our right to know how the government, the federal reserve, and the new czars are spending it. The founding fathers knew if one branch of government got too much power it would be easily corruptible, and we are seeing that fear come true before our eyes.

I want to fight for the liberty to listen to those who I consider patriots of our time on our radio, television and internet. Repressing the voices of people like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity on our radios and television is not promoting diversity but yet the exact opposite. Those men speak without fear, and I consider them as models for how we all should be speaking, loudly clearly and against the tyranny destroying our country.

I want to fight for the liberty to celebrate the men and women of our United States Armed Forces for what they are. Heroes. I sacrifice my happiness everyday to give all of you the protection of my husband. He is gone from me more than he is home, and while it saddens me to have him be away, it provides me great pride to know you may all sleep soundly at night knowing he is out there making that possible. He is my personal hero and he should be considered one by the government and country he serves. He protects us all from terrorists, foreign and domestic, Never should he be called one. Never.

I want to fight for our liberty to bear arms. I have the right to defend my family. My father has never joined any organization besides that of his church yet this year he became a proud member of the NRA. I am not fighting for the right to use a gun for an un necessary violent act, but against those who seek to harm me or my family in such vicious attacks. Guns to not kill people by themselves, yet protect us from someone whose intent is to kill us.

Twenty years ago we would have found it ridiculous that any of these liberties would be in jeopardy. But they are. I have pledged to allegiance to you and to this country to fight for liberty and justice for all. I intend to keep that pledge. I want to ask you all to stand beside me as I speak and fight for these liberties. They are the foundation that this country was built upon, and while several are seeking to destroy that they will find that before they reach that foundation they will find me. Standing firmly without fear.

We the people, those of you with me here today are not un-American angry mobs. We are just the opposite. We are American as it gets. So I have one question for you all today. Will you accept the challenge of standing beside me and protecting Liberty and Justice for all?

(expecting cheers…LOL)

That’s what I thought. God Bless America, and God bless you.

Debating is bad for MY health.

August 23, 2009

Well, the argument rages on, and its getting old. No one on the other side is LISTENING and I am tired of the constant barrage of ignorant comments like the fact that I don’t want National Healthcare means I am in some way a sadistic heartless meanie head who wants everyone to die if they’re not rich. Its PRECISELY the OPPOSITE! But they keep on saying it….along with the same tired buzzwords trying to make me seem like a bad person, or morally corrupt.

I have a few liberal people in my twitter stream that although they are mean to conservatives in general are nice enough to me personally. I am going to go over a few of the tweets between me and one of my liberal followers. Normally I would call him out…but since he is a good guy…just wrong…I will not. I am tired of the same old points and how they don’t make sense and no good debate is held in 140 characters or less, so I will take his tweets and answer them in depth. Now when someone says the same things tomorrow…my responses will be complete and finite.

This all began because he said “The GOP dont give a damn about anyone but themselves..The De-Facto Segregation of Health Care” and “RT If Right-Wingers Get Their Way, 22,000 Americans Will Continue 2 B Killed by Lack of Health Care Each Yr” and “RT inside Story on Town Hall Riots: Right-Wing Shock Troops Do Corporate America’s Dirty Work”. I was sick of seeing it so I said a few things back and thus begun yet another debate:

LIBERAL POINT #1: more than that will die with no healthcare. That is a fact. If they don’t come to SOME kind of compromise… (this was in response to me saying thousands die on waiting lists in countries with Nationalized systems)

Ok, if I put metal in a microwave for 10 minutes it is a fact that it will be bad. It is a fact because I can prove it based on the research of me doing it prior. Facts can be proven or disproven on research. We have never had a national healthcare option before. You have NO EARTHLY CLUE how many people will die on waiting lists for care, for a primary care doctor, for tests, for medicine, for diagnosis, for the money to pay a private care doctor if the government refuses to pay for their care. You don’t know because we have no research to determine the exact number. It is a fact that people will die. The 22,000 people that are estimated to die from lack of coverage each year are greatly increased by two things, REFUSING TO SEE A DOCTOR, and REFUSING TREATMENT BASED ON FEAR OF DEBT! These people are not REFUSED CARE! They CHOOSE not to go into debt over it. Very few are in situations that hospitals refuse treatment based on coverage. No hospital can refuse you care based on your coverage. Anyone who has been to an ER can attest to this. If you don’t want to get into debt to save your life…then it doesn’t matter that much to you. HOWEVER, in Canada and Great Britain it is a FACT that waitlists are growing and there is no solution in sight. How many people die on waiting lists every year? One researcher said it best…
Claims about patients dying because of waiting too long cannot be confirmed or denied from
current research and information. This is a part of the sorry state of wait list information in
Canada and Britain. Even simple statistics such as deaths from different procedures, or deaths of patients on
different lists, are simply not available.
Sounds peachy. At least in our system, we have the capability to tell you someone died.

LIBERAL POINT #2: (in response to who do you blame, since liberals are all about blame) I Blame the GOP leadership & Rush, hannity, beck, Steele, etc. They don’t give a damn about me. And they’re not even trying..

This one made me laugh. Lets review job titles shall we?

Rush Limbaugh:
Radio Talk Show Host on the EIB network.
Elected Official: No
Responsibility to Public: None, although if his listeners who choose to listen to him feel he is not a good host, they can change the channel.

Sean Hannity:
Radio and Television Talk Show Host on Fox News
Elected Official: No
Responsibility to the Public: None, although if his listeners who choose to listen to him feel he is not a good host, they can change the channel.

Glenn Beck:
Radio and Television Talk Show Host on Fox News
Elected Official: No
Responsibility to the Public: None, although if his listeners who choose to listen to him feel he is not a good host, they can change the channel.

Michael Steele:
Chairman of the Republican National Committee
Elected Official: No
Responsibility to the Public: To direct the party towards better leadership, if you are unhappy with his leadership, don’t be a republican.

You don’t feel like Radio and Television talk show hosts and the head of political committee don’t care about you? Um ok. Who cares? I am pretty sure Oprah doesn’t care about me and neither does the leader of the Aryan Nation, but they don’t have to care about me. If people are unhappy, they don’t have to do anything they suggest. If Rush Limbaugh tells me to donate 60000 to charity this year and I don’t…oh well. If Barack Obama passes a law saying I have to donate 60000 to charity this year and I don’t…I go to prison. See the difference? If you blame Rush, Beck, Hannity, and Steele for your problems, thats like me blaming Angelina Jolie for being prettier than I am and its her job to fix it. BARACK OBAMA AND HIS DEMOCRATIC PARTY MEMBERS ARE DUTY BOUND BY THEIR OFFICES TO DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE COUNTRY! Rush Limbaugh is duty bound to live, pay taxes and die, just like the rest of us. If you don’t like Rush, Hannity or Beck, don’t listen to their shows! If you don’t like Steele, don’t be Republican. If I don’t like Barack Obama, I still have to be American, and he still is the Commander in Chief of my husbands job. We kinda have to do whatever he says without question.

LIBERAL POINT #3: (this one was just out there) I saw the townhalls at ppl who called themselves patriots and all, but no one looked like me. I’ve fought for my community too.

No one looked like you? Can I just pass this one up? What does a patriot look like? Anyone look like Yankee Doodle Dandy with a feather in their cap? Ridiculous.

LIBERAL POINT #4: (two tweets in one point) millions without HC, without all the rhetoric, how do we help them? They need healthcare. All races. This should have happened alrdy. ok, what do you propose? Doing nothing is not an option.

First of all, LOL at me spitting out rhetoric. Ok, stop with race. Really. Seriously. Nothing to do with race. I don’t say it often….BUT SHUT UP! Who said anything about race? Oh yeah, you. Get over it.
Here’s what I propose and listen carefully since I am going to say this only (counts on fingers) well, 16,562,782,101 times already:
Get a job with benefits. If you cannot work, get Medicaid. If you can’t get Medicaid, go to the doctor’s and get in debt. If you get in debt and cannot pay it, declare bankruptcy. If you don’t want to declare bankruptcy, get a job. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Now, get out your pencils and paper and take notes on this last part because its the important part ok?
I CAN DO NOTHING.
ITS MY RIGHT NOT TO PAY FOR YOU TO LIVE.
PEOPLE WITHOUT HEALTHCARE CANNOT KEEP DOING NOTHING.
TELL THEM TO DO SOMETHING.
THERE’S YOUR OPTION.

LIBERAL POINT #5: I’m a fan of ppl not dying because they can’t afford to go to the doctor. If that’s “socialism” then guilty as charged.

Finally, FIN-A-#($*&#($*&-LLY. We called them socialist in the beginning and it was like we called them Silly Billy Goo Goo Poopy Heads. We call them socialists now, after Brad Pitt said it was cool, and NOW its yep! Guilty as charged.
I understand you are not a fan of people dying. Neither am I. What you are failing to grasp still is that socialized medicine will kill people. Lets say your 22,000 people estimate is correct. Lets say all of these people per year die based on their checkbooks alone. Its not true, but lets just pretend. Lets put that number in perspective:

Every year:

43,354 people die in car accidents. Thats 21,354 people more than healthcare. Almost twice.

28,663 people die by firearm including gang warfare, criminals killed by police, and self defense. Thats more than healthcare by 6,663.

32,691 people die from poisoning, 72% of those unintentionally. Thats 10,691 more than healthcare.

30,622 people die from suicide. Thats 8,622 more than healthcare.

Suddenly, deaths due to healthcare seem not that large. Funny, here we are acting like people are dropping like flies. (excuse the pun, PETA). If you are not a fan of people dying due to not having healthcare, lets take on more important issues first. Don’t drive in a car, don’t be in a gang, don’t get shot by the cops, don’t get robbed, don’t ingest poison, don’t kill yourself. After you take care of these issues…the ones that really kill people…then we can talk.

Ideas That I Think Are Better Than National Healthcare

August 7, 2009

If you have never read this blog, seen my tweets, see the graphics on the sidebar, see the banner up there or know me at all, then you may not know how against Obamacare I really am. Its a horrible idea. How much do I despise this idea of socialized medicine you may ask? Well I will list some ideas that I think are better than its propsal. Remember this list is of things that ARE BETTER than nationalized healthcare.

1. Cleaning your bathroom with the door shut and a huge bucket of ammonia and bleach.

2. Asking a group of black football players if they know where the white supremecy rally is.

3. Calling the FBI and asking if anyone there knows the easiest way to build a bomb.

4. Go swimming in shark infested waters with huge bloody gashes on your body.

5. Putting a sign up in your front yard with your alarm code and a spare key taped to.

6. Spending the night alone, with no cell phone or lights of any kind, in the Waverly Hills sanatorium.

7. Going up to a cop in a police car and asking if he’d like to have sex for $500 or buy the pound of cocaine I have in my car or maybe a stolen gun from the trunk

8. Giving an infant a spray bottle of cleaner, a basket of rocks, and an open bottle of morphine pills to play with as you leave them alone to go the store.

9. Driving 10 mph in the fast lane on the 5 in the Los Angeles.

10. Deciding that watching the category 5 hurricane that is headed directly for your house from a lawnchair on the roof would be awesome.

11. Yelling on plane “has anyone seen a remote detinator for a bomb? I lost it!!!”

12. Going to the zoo with a couple of steaks in your bag and deciding to jump the guardrail to give them to the tigers since they looked hungry.

13. Riding in a car with Ted Kennedy, Lindsay Lohan, or Paris Hilton.

14. Cooking with grease in the kitchen when suddenly it catches fire, so you pour water on it.

And last but not by any means last (and my favorite)

15. Go to a pep rally on the University of Michigan campus wearing an Ohio State hat, an Ohio state jersey, an Ohio State necklace, Ohio State earrings, Ohio State socks, and Ohio State shoes then calling
your all of your best friends and telling them to call every 3 minutes after changing your ringtone to “We Don’t Give A Damn About The Whole State of Michigan” all on the day of the Ohio State v. Michigan game.

All of these are extremely bad ideas and most if not all would cause bodily harm, yet still in my opinion are smarter, more efficient, with minimal if not no cost, and safer than the proposed Obamacare bill.

National Socialized Healthcare controlled and run by Barack H. Soetoro Obama is definitely not the worst idea, but it dangerously close to it.
