Extraordinary Pantene Commercial
Never give up. Never, ever, ever give up.
It is NOT handicap, or even disabled...it is about ABILITY.
I am uncertain as to whom that thought is attributable to, but it is very true.
That's how Congressman John Dingell describes the meeting. Those who angrily protested against the Health Care Bill 'infiltrated' the meeting.
Infiltrated. By whom?
Part of 'the MOB'.
Definitely NOT someone with very honest concerns that should be listened to closely, and with opinions that matter.
But, Congressman, they are your Constituents, and have a RIGHT to be there, with a RIGHT to tell you that they do not want this Health Care Plan voted in. In fact, they have a DUTY to do so as Citizens!
YOU have a DUTY TO HEAR THEM!
Oh, and.... they do vote.
Lord, have Mercy on us.
Robert Gibbs On Whitehouse Website Fishy Emails
Reference is made back to this post of yesterday. I commend the reporters for asking REAL questions, and not letting go.
HT to Barbara Kralis via Facebook.
Fishy emails re Obamanation Adm.? Watch press sec. Gibbs say they're not collecting name and saving IP addresses. Liar, liar, your pants are on fire. Watch Gibbs dance around the Fox News question while telling the reporter he's hatching a 'nefarious' plot. And POTUS says they're not taking names?
Barbara sent us to Breitbart,
I then went to youtube:
Major Garret and other reporters don't let Gibbs off the hook easily.
Gibbs says the disinformation that the whitehouse wants you to report...is not what it sounds like,pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
This is EXACTLY my reaction to the video the author is speaking about! It is posted ON THE WHITE HOUSE website!
By Bart Willruth
In 1930's Germany, the new socialist government of Adolf Hitler (NAZI National Socialist Workers' Party) began indoctrinating children in the quasi-military organization, the Hitler Youth, to inform on their parents should they overhear discussions subversive to the policies of the Leader. As the noose was tightened, local community organizers were appointed to watch their neighbors and were told to report subversive comments to the bureaucrats above them. Neighbors informed on neighbors, some for reasons of patriotism or loyalty, some from fear. A modern inquisition ensued; a terror to free thought and expression. Increasingly harsh penalties were meted out to those who dared to dissent.
The socialist governments of the Soviet Union, Fascist Italy, N. Korea, Cuba, Yugoslavia, and the People's Republic of China employed the same citizen informer techniques. Citizens of those societies were reduced to either silence or whispered discussion only among those they trusted the most. Of course none of those things would ever occur here in the land of the free. But wait...
Now on the White House website posted by Macon Phillips comes an eerily similar request for citizens to inform on their neighbors. It states,
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to the end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org."
Read this again carefully. The government of the United States is openly asking citizens to report rumors, the contents of casual conversation, and the contents of emails. They decry the fact that they are unable to "keep track" of the communication between citizens effectively and are asking for help from informers. Of course forwarded emails would contain the electronic addresses of the sender.

The Catholic Key Blog: Rep. Tim Ryan's Bishop Opposes Ryan-DeLauro Planned Parenthood Bailout
The entire post is very good, but the final words are excellent!
Contact your Representative and Senators and urge them to co-sponsor the Pregnant Women Support Act (H.R. 2035 or S. 1032). All member of Congress should hear from their constituents that reducing the number of abortions in the United States and supporting vulnerable mothers and their children should be a national priority.There are currently 39 House co-sponsors of the Pregnant Women Support Act and 41 co-sponsors of the Ryan-DeLauro Bill.
It is also time for prolifers to put pressure on prolife Republicans to co-sponsor PWSA. That it is originally sponsored by prolife Dems should not be an excuse to stay away from it. There are a few Republican co-sponsors, including Chris Smith (R-NJ) and my new political hero Ahn "Joseph" Cao (R-LA). If the other Repubs are truly prolife, they'd drop political considerations and sign up for PWSA now.

No term limit for President Obama?
This is nearly a month old, true, but has been something that has been sitting on the back of my mind for a long time. The other day, with the death of Cory Aquino, one statement about Marcos, and another one that I have made many times to many people, rang loudly!
The last time I said "It only takes ONE TIME of declaring martial law...." was to my youngest brother when he asked me what it was about Obama that worried me.
The statement about Marcos??
Former Philippines President Aquino Dead At 76 : NPR
Marcos, elected president in 1965, declared martial law in 1972 to avoid term limits. He abolished the Congress and jailed Aquino's husband and thousands of opponents, journalists and activists without charges. Aquino became her husband's political stand-in, confidant, message carrier and spokeswoman.
That in mind, perhaps you can understand why this article still sits there waiting for me to put it on my blog... "ONE time... Martial Law... One Time".
No term limit for President Obama?
Hondurans celebrate ousting of Zelaya (AP/Javier Galeano)
Yes, you read it right. Democrat Representative Jose Serrano of New York wishes to allow unlimited terms for President Obama.
The presidential term limit was ratified as an amendment to the Constitution in 1951. However, our founding fathers adhered to the principle of a two-term limit on their own accord. The only president that served more than two terms was Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt, who served four non-consecutive terms.
Shall we go the way of the Venezuelan dictatorship?
