American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

What the heck. Has anyone actually looked at were this 900 BILLION dollars is going? If you want to have a look, you can find the full text of what passed the House here:
The Library of Congress: THOMAS

I have been looking over this, and it basically looks to me like we are funding everything that should already be funded. Most of the stuff is going to wards additional acts and bills that already have funding. But we are just throwing more money at them. Can anyone find anything that is directly related to helping the middle class. I …

Awesome Quote – Blagojevich

“I did a lot of things that were mostly right.”

What??? Did you do anything that was right, or was everything mostly right? And what about the other things, were they mostly wrong?

Just in case you don’t know who this guy is. He is the current Gov. of Ill that is currently in the process of being impeached by his states politicians.…

HUH?? Which do you think is more EVIL?

OK, so here it is. Pretender-in-chief Obama on Jan 22nd, 2009 executed several Executive Orders. Basically, he limited how and were prisoners of war or terrorists could be held and questioned. He thinks we are being to hard on people that would in a moments notice pick up a gun and kill any citizen of the US they could. We need to be nice to them, and make their stay in our prisons nicer than their own homes. So he made three executive orders.

Ice Cream & The Election

Disclaimer: I got this from a co-worker, so I don’t have a source for where it came from, but I think the meaning is well taken.

From a teacher in the Nashville area.

Who worries about “the cow” when it is all about the “Ice Cream?

The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year.

The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.

I decided we would have an election for a class president.

We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class

Board sides with evolution in curriculum debate

By APRIL CASTRO Associated Press Writer

Basically, the State Board of Education in Texas changed the wording of the curriculum. It use to say that Evolution had to be taught and that both “strengths and weaknesses” need to be discussed.

The article continues to go on and say:

“It’s outrageous that our highest elected education officials voted to silence teachers and students in science class,” said Jonathan Saenz, a lobbyist for the Free Market Foundation. “Despite being overwhelmed bye-mails and phone calls to keep strengths and weaknesses, the divided State Board …

Obama Executive Order – Guantanamo Bay Closure


In my opinion, this is just asking for trouble. Why do we want to bring people who fight against American and what its values on US Soil? I feel this is a sign to the World that we are going to get soft on terrorism. Hey, heck, lets do a terrorist act against the US… At least we will get housed in a US prison and won’t have to worry about finding food, etc. This makes

Inauguration Benediction – Rev Lowry

Did this make anyone else upset? I thought we were suppose to be looking past color, and embracing change…

“Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around — (laughter) — when yellow will be mellow — (laughter) — when the red man can get ahead, man — (laughter) — and when white will embrace what is right.” 1/20/2009 – Inauguration of President H …

Margaret Sanger – Mother of Planned Parenthood

From the Planned Parenthood website:

Planned Parenthood dates its beginnings to 1916 when Sanger, her sister, and a friend open America’s first birth control clinic in Brooklyn, New York. In Sanger’s America, women cannot vote, sign contracts, have bank accounts, or divorce abusive husbands. They cannot control the number of children they have or obtain information about birth control, because in the 1870s a series of draconian measures, called the Comstock laws, made contraception illegal and declared information about family planning and contraception “obscene.”

Sanger knows the tragic toll of such ignorance. Her mother had 18 pregnancies, bore 11 children,

Enhancing Child Safety on-line.

A study recently done by the Internet Safety Technical Task Force as been published. They have a Final Report that was published December 31, 2008. The report is written to the Multi-State Working Group on Social Networking of State Attorneys General of the United States, but it has a section in it for recommendations for Parents and Caregivers (page 38).

Here are the suggestions they give for Parents and Caregivers, I am paraphrasing.

Parents and caregivers should educate themselves. Learn what the internet is, and the ways that their children us it. Parents and caregivers should explore and research technologies…
