#OWS....always a class act.

Demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street movement disrupted a Pro Life Rally in Rhode Island on Thursday.

About two-dozen members of Occupy Providence hiked from Burnside Park to the 39th Annual Pro-Life State House Rally organized by the Rhode Island State Right to Life Committee on Thursday. 
The pro-life organization’s executive director, Barth E. Bracy, told LifeSiteNews.com that, near the end of the rally, the Occupiers “strategically fanned out with military precision.”
That’s when they “started showering condoms down on some of the girls from a Catholic high school.”
They gathered around speakers at the podium, shouting them down or otherwise jostling them and members of the audience.

Bracy, who finished only a quarter of his keynote address before being drowned out by chants and catcalls, said the Occupiers – who carried a large sign reading “Occupy Providence” and wore distinguishing arm bands – physically bumped several people. “They’re touching you. They’re swarming you,” he said.
The Providence chapter openly planned its actions on its Facebook page, Bracy said.
Bracy said he was disappointed when he tried to ask a man from the national Occupy Wall Street movement, who identified himself as “Dallas,” what opposing the right to life had to do with economics. “You can’t have a reasoned conversation with these people,” he said, “They simply try to taunt you. They’re smug, snarky, arrogant. You won’t get a straight answer.”
 /snark/ Well, at least they are keeping it klassy and making a completely sane and valid point  //snark/

Tea Party Leaders to Florida Voters: Santorum, Gingrich, and Paul Should Continue Past Florida

Michael Patrick Leahy


Tea Party Leaders to Florida Voters: Santorum, Gingrich,
and Paul Should Continue Past Florida

January 30, 2012 - Local tea party leaders from around the country who have organized the ElectionDayTeaParty.com project today released a statement of support for Florida voters participating in Tuesday's Presidential preference election.

Billie Tucker, of Jacksonville’s First Coast Tea Party declined supporting any single candidate, stating, "I am endorsing We the People because I believe they will make the right decision this Tuesday based on facts, data, research and truth.

"I am endorsing the People because they have become wise and know that what we are seeing on the airwaves and hearing from the mouths of some of these candidates is not truth.

"I am endorsing the People because I trust them more than I trust any consultant, media personality or 'has-been political operatives.' I trust the people to show the Establishment that times have changed."

Michael Patrick Leahy, co-organizer of Election Day Tea Party, agreed, and added, “None of the four candidates seeking the Republican Presidential nomination have yet earned the full support of the Tea Party movement.  For us, this election is about determining which of these candidates will best align their policies with the three core values of the Tea Party movement: constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.”

Michelle Moore, co-founder of the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition, stated, "Sarah Palin recently suggested we should '… keep this vetting process going,' and many tea partiers agree with that sentiment.  It’s time to elevate the discussions in this campaign process beyond petty personal attacks over insignificant issues.  By keeping the debate going, we will see exactly which candidate understands that it is only with limited government that we have unlimited opportunity to pursue happiness and prosperity in America."

Mark West of the Chattanooga Tea Party said, "At this point, it’s quite clear to most in the Tea Party movement that Governor Romney has made a strategic decision not to engage with the movement, or make a serious attempt to understand our message.  Personally, I want to encourage Floridians to vote for a candidate other than Governor Romney in order to continue this critical conversation."

Carol Knighton, co-founder of Florida’s Leesburg Regional Tea Party said, "So far, none of the top three candidates have given us any confidence they will demand any more fiscal responsibility than the current Republican-led House and Democratic-led Senate - which INCREASED federal spending in 2011 by 5% over 2010 - after the Tea Party movement's historic role to elect 63 new Republican members of Congress in 2010."

Zan Green, founder of the RainyDayPatriots.org Tea Party in Birmingham, Alabama, added, "The modern Tea Party movement started because Washington and the two primary parties had lost all moorings to our Constitution. We the people demanded a return of the Government of the people, and only ‘We The People’ can pick the leader by the vetting process and by having that candidate answer to us."

Lorie Medina, founder of the Frisco, Texas Tea Party and creator of the Victory-in-a-Box get-out-the-vote program added, “The Tea Party is back for the 2012 elections and stronger than ever.  We’ve been flooded with volunteers at ElectionDayTeaParty.com who want to help get-out-the vote this November.

"I encourage everyone who supports the idea of constitutionally limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets to sign up at our website today.  We’ll help you use your talents and energies in our campaign to restore this country.”

The first national event of Election Day Tea Party 2012 will be a celebration of the Tea Party movement's 3rd anniversary on February 25th, 26th, and 27th.  On February 27, 2009, the Tea Party movement was launched with simultaneous tea parties in fifty cities which were attended by more than 30,000 tea partiers.  This was immediately followed by Tax Day Tea Party on April 15, 2009, when over 1 million tea partiers participated in rallies held in more than 900 cities.

Additional tea parties who joined the Election Day Tea Party 2012 project and the third anniversary celebration in February come from Tennessee, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Mississippi, New Jersey, Texas, Delaware, Arkansas, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin, New Mexico, California, Florida, and Connecticut.  Election Day Tea Party 2012 anticipates that tea parties from every state will participate.

School Choice Weeek-Missouri Townhall Sponsored by AFP

AFP Missouri put on an event in St. Louis last night for School Choice Week.The panel consisted of Dick Morris, Dana Loesch, Mike Podgursky and Robbyn Wahby. The panel discussion surrounded the choices available, especially in the inner city school systems and ways we can improve not only those choices, but the entire school system. There was much talk surrounding the influence teachers unions have. They influence not only the quality of the learning environment, but also the money in education and how its spent. They also covered the importance of parental and even student involvement in the education process. The consensus seemed to be that while the choice to go to a better performing school or an educational program better tailored to the student needs is important, there was no amount of choice that supplants the parents influence on the child's desire to learn and the effect that has on things like quality of education, graduation rate and even having better choices in available schools.

There was much discussion surrounding inner city schools, the current state of education, and the lack of good choices for families. Dick Morris brought up Detroit city schools. Families looking for good schools and more choices are leaving that city in droves. That reduces the student body and tax base. This often results in teacher lay-offs and larger class sizes-often more than 60 kids. Then because of the ridiculous teachers union rules, what may be a good teacher must be laid-off to keep a vested teacher in his position. At that point teachers unions demand pay raises for the teachers that remain due to increased class size-which the city cannot then afford to give because of the reduced tax base-which results in even more teacher lay-offs. This leaves inner city families with no choice. They end up with a few bad schools that are over-crowed and filled with many teachers who retired years ago but didn't bother to tell anyone.

In many ways we are facing some of these same choices in our own city schools here in St. Louis. Robbyn Wahby points out that in St. Louis City lost about 22,000 children (and their tax paying families) since the last census. Those families are leaving the city for the suburbs where they have true choice and better public schools. Interestingly, the population of young adults without kids has increased in St. Louis. This would indicate our city does have culture and other qualities that can be used to attract families-we just have to make it top priority to find and retain quality teachers and run quality schools. Dana Loesch says that part of that reform must involve reforming the teachers unions and the way they work. She related a personal story about a young energetic teacher who was very popular in her high school. This teacher used lots of applied learning (hands on) and was a great teacher. The union came in and told her to "tone it down" because she was angering the older, less energetic teachers who had already established the "proper" way to teach. Putting the kibosh in new ways to teach and maligning fresh young teachers has long been practiced in teachers unions across the country. For those teachers, all the talk of "the children" is just that, talk. They care nothing about the children, they care only for their cushy jobs and sweet pension.

So, what are some of the solutions? Parental and student involvement is a huge factor in the success of students. Alternative schools, such as Loyola Academy where this event was held, involve the kids and the parents fully in the education of the student. Kids who could otherwise never afford a college prep school are given the chance to beat the odds. Before students are admitted they are interviewed and told the expectation of the school. Parents get a similar treatment. Parents are expected to volunteer many hours throughout the school year and less than 100% from either the parent or child is not good enough. Loyola has it right. They are a private school-they have the ability to set standards and expectations, then hold parents and students accountable. Their way is working for at-risk kids in the inner city. When a program works, parents spread the word and enrollment increases. If we had good choices in schools, those schools would survive because families would not move out of the area to get the programs they need for their kids.

The President of Loyola Academy says they are not saving students, they are empowering them to be successful. All of our schools need this attitude. We need schools that don't simply act as holding cells between the hours of 7:30 and 2:30 Monday thru Friday. We need schools that empower children and involve parents. We need schools that hire quality teachers and have a mechanism to rid themselves of ineffective or even down-right abusive teachers.  We need metrics that measure results and then the guts to close schools and re-engineer school districts to fix actual problems. Failing teachers and failing schools must go. There must be an effective, results oriented way to deal with these issues.

At the end of the panel discussion, they wrapped up with a few final thoughts. Robbyn Wahby reminds us that any good idea is twice as likely to succeed with good support systems. If we have ideas we want implemented or we feel the mayors office is promoting good choices in education, we can support that effort by making it known we support it and doing things that promote the choice. Dana Loesch thinks good choices in schools are extremely important, but that getting the unelected federal bureaucracy out of our local schools is also imperative. We have standards decided and implemented at the federal level-things like Common Core Standards and Longitudinal Data Systems-that influence the meat of what our children are being taught, yet we have no say so in what is included in those standards. Finally, Dick Morris says we are in the middle of an education revolution. In 2010 through 2014 we will see a time of great change to our educational system, at this time Missouri is not leading the charge on this, but we could be. It is time to grab the reins and lead the charge for the future of our children's education.

Thanks to Americans for Prosperity for bringing this event to St. Louis. Thanks to Loyola Academy for hosting this event. (They survive on 100% donations, please consider donating) And big thanks to all the guests for their excellent and informative panel on what St. Louis can do to improve the choices for our students.

Google begins massive data aggrigation

Yesterday Google released information on their new privacy policy, or lack thereof, set to take effect on March 1st. In the announcement was the consolidation of over 70 different privacy policies into one. Thier new policy states Google will track useage across multiple products, such as email and search, and customize your browsing experience based off that.
The main change, says Google, is that if you are signed into your Google account, Google will combine user info across its products to better serve account holders. As Google says, "In short, we’ll treat you as a single user across all our products, which will mean a simpler, more intuitive Google experience"
 The announcement has many users concerned. Google has been accused of privacy breeches before and is currently under investigation by a couple of different agencies for various possible business practice violations. When a search giant like Google wants to pilfer your email and searches in order to deliver ads it begins to feel a little creepy. There is little doubt this new "No More Privacy, Policy" will come under the microscope as well.

7 Events That Made America America
All students of American history know the big events that dramatically shaped our country. The Civil War, Pearl Harbor, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and 9/11 are just a few. But there are other, less famous events that had an equally profound impact.
Notable conservative historian Larry Schweikart takes an in-depth look at seven of these transformative moments and provides an analysis of how each of them spurred a trend that either confirmed or departed from the vision our Founding Fathers had for America.
For instance, he shows how Martin Van Buren’s creation of a national political party made it possible for Obama to get elected almost two centuries later and how Dwight Eisenhower’s heart attack led to a war on red meat, during which the government took control over Americans’ diets. In his easy-to-read yet informative style, Schweikart will not only educate but also surprise readers into reevaluating our history. 

More about Larry Schweikart
Dr. Larry Schweikart
Larry Schweikart was born in Arizona, went to Arizona State University, got terrible
grades, and upon graduation promptly went on the road as a drummer in a rock band.
His group became semi-famous, opening for “Steppenwolf,” the “James Gang,” and “Mother’s Finest,” and drew the attention of Billboard Magazine. After a few years, however, Schweikart tired of the road and wanted a more intellectual pursuit. After a single U.S. history course during a stint in summer school, he decided he wanted to be a professor.
Graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1984, Schweikart had already written two books and several academic articles as a graduate student. After a year in the University of Wisconsin system, he took a position at the University of Dayton, where he teaches to the present.
Over the years, Schweikart has written nearly 30 books, dozens of articles and book reviews, and became an authority in antebellum banking and finance. In the 1990s, he wrote his own history of American business, The Entrepreneurial Adventure, then, with
Michael Allen, began work on a larger project, a history of the United States.
Published in 2004 as A Patriot’s History of the United States, this book became a bestseller and attracted the attention of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, who interviewed Schweikart for his newsletter in March 2004. Now in multiple editions and a fourth printing, Patriot’s History continues to be “the” alternative history for parents disgusted with the dominant liberal-left textbooks.
In 2006, Schweikart followed up with the controversial AmericaĆ­s Victories: Why the U.S. Wins Wars. Featured on BOOK TV and numerous television and radio shows, Schweikart was invited by the President of the United States to the Oval Office for an extended discussion of military history in August 2006.
Now, with his new book, 48 Liberal Lies About American History (That You Probably Learned in School) Schweikart is back in the culture wars. He has appeared on the “700 Club”, “Fox and Friends”, Fox News, Book TV, and dozens of national and local radio shows, including Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Hugh Hewitt, and many others. A novelist who has written a 9/11 thriller, September Day, and a World War II counterfactual military drama, Halsey’s Bluff, Schweikart brings history to life in a variety of venues.

How SOPA, PIPA, NDAA, MMI, and the DHS are stripping you of freedom

No doubt over last few days you have heard much talk about SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and its Senate companion bill PIPA. (The Protect Intellectual Property Act) Both of these bills give unprecedented power to the government and content creators to seize domains and shutter web sites. Unfortunately, the people writing these laws have no idea how the Internet works, nor do they really care. When your backers are mostly the big Hollywood agencies or entertainment behemoths like MPAA and RIAA, heavy-hitters claiming they want to protect their clients, yet also the biggest infringers on IP rights of them all-and there are millions of dollars in campaign donations at stake, you'll go the extra mile to make your "friends" happy.
For all of the lefts talk of protecting the 99% from the 1% there isn't much discussion of how these laws more often protect the "haves" from....well, everyone else. From patent law, idea censorship, bailouts and tax breaks-you name it-our government uses law, power and regulation to protect corporations from the free market competition that might, under the right circumstance, threaten their longevity. And they do it all under the guise of "protecting" us, yet the little guy rarely, if ever, benefits from any of these protections. More likely, competition and innovation of start-ups or mom and pops are stomped out by giants using government to wield unchecked power. Laws such as these are perfect examples of the government stepping in to pick winners and losers. Rather than the music and movie industry changing with the times, they use government power to stick to the status quo and retain a stranglehold over the entertainment industry.

RIAA already prostitutes existing copyright and IP law to sue college students and dead grandmas for millions. Why the need for more laws? The government swears these new laws wouldn't be abused by them or anyone else. They are simply for the protection of the assets of people and the livelihood they create. Guilty until proven innocent will only be used against foreign criminals that rob these poor corporations blind.....except history shows us a completely different story. Take patent law and the chemical giant Monsanto. Through an abuse of patent law they have successfully sued, for millions, family owned farms accused of illegally growing their genetically modified seed-even when said farmer did not plant the seed and Monsanto willingly acknowledges that fact. How about just this past year when 73,000 web sites were shut down in July with no warning, no day in court. Completely put out of business on order to the ISP from the DHS. Or how about when ICE did it here, here and here? What about the case of Dajaz1.com? That site was shut down and all assets seized for more than a year. Again, no charges were ever filed and no explanation was given. In the Dajaz1 case, ICE acted on the word of the VP of Anti-Piracy Legal Affairs from RIAA, without proof or evidence of violation or infringement of law. In one part of the case, they acted on behalf of an artist not even represented by an RIAA label.
The Dajaz1 case became particularly interesting to us, after we saw evidence showing that the songs that ICE used in its affidavit as "evidence" of criminal copyright infringement were songs sent by representatives of the copyright holder with the request that the site publicize the works -- in one case, even coming from a VP at a major music label. Even worse, about the only evidence that ICE had that these songs were infringing was the word of the "VP of Anti-Piracy Legal Affairs for the RIAA," Carlos Linares, who was simply not in a position to know if the songs were infringing or authorized. In fact, one o f the songs involved an artist not even represented by an RIAA label, and Linares clearly had absolutely no right to speak on behalf of that artist.
We have this history and these facts, yet our government wants us to believe that laws like SOPA/PIPA or NDAA or the Media Monitoring Initiative-where personal and public information of "news anchors, journalists, reporters or anyone who may use traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed.” will now be tracked and aggregated-are not positioned perfectly to abuse us, the American citizen? They want us to believe they will not be used to silence those that are not in agreement? I'm just not that trusting.

These bills do not stop the criminals they claim to be going after. The censorship regulations written into these bills won’t shut down pirate sites. Those sites will just change their addresses and continue selling pirated materials or others intellectual property; law-abiding sites will face high penalties for malfeasance they likely aren't aware of and can’t possibly control. Through a convoluted set of checks and balances the multi-billion dollar search giant, Google, is protected from infringement claims, but you and I are not. We must know the end-point of links and follow information rabbit holes that touch our sites, as much as three layers deep. If you don't and one person says you are purposefully harboring links or paths to protected content, BOOM, you're out of business. The government and gigantic corporations again swing the crushing sword of the elite, with no one to check their power.

Obama pollster and Democratic strategist calls Herman Cain a racist on camera, then denies it.

Yesterday the race-bating Cornell Belcher denied calling Herman Cain a racist on live T.V.

Unfortunately, these days we have two new technologies that allow us to see things that happened in the past on T.V. called the Internet and video.......

So, yeah.....except no.........

Andrew Sullivan thinks you are dumb

This weeks cover story for Newsweek, written by fake conservative Andrew Sullivan, asks the burning question: "Why are you so dumb?"

Apparently, the unwashed masses do not see how Obama holds out an extreme leftist view, gets attacked for it, then actually implements some moderate idea that the people with brains all sing and dance around or.....something.Unfortunately the entire article is full of liberal "facts" that just dont add up. It's basically the same 'ole line "BUSH DID IT!" and Obama had to clean it up.

That line isn't working any more kids. Obama has no idea what he is doing-the out-of-control debt, soaring unemployment, business killing regulation and a housing market that has NEVER in history been so bad, show us that.

Enjoy your fantasy Mr. Sullivan, the time for waking is near.

PRESS RELEASE: Tea Party Leaders to DNC Chair: Stop Lying About Us

Michael Patrick Leahy


Tea Party Leaders to DNC Chair: Stop Lying About Us
Challenge Her to a Debate on the Constitution

January 12, 2012 - Local tea party leaders from around the country who organized the ElectionDayTeaParty.com website today told DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz that it was time to stop lying about the Tea Party movement.

"It's time for Ms. Wasserman Schultz to stop spreading her vitriolic and divisive rhetoric about the millions of Americans who support the Tea Party movement and its three core values of constitutionally limited government, free markets, and fiscal responsibility," said Mark West, President of the Chattanooga Tea Party.

"Today, we are challenging Ms. Wasserman Schultz to a debate on the Constitution," said Michael Patrick Leahy, co-coordinator of Election Day Tea Party. "We think the country is ready for direct and civil discourse on what the Constitution says about the proper role of the
federal government in our lives. That's the real issue. Ms. Wasserman Schultz and the entire leadership of the Democratic Party believe that the federal government should keep taxing and spending more and more. We in the Tea Party movement think otherwise."

The first national event of Election Day Tea Party 2012 will be a celebration of the Tea Party movement's 3rd anniversary on February 25th, 26th, and 27th. On February 27, 2009, the Tea Party movement was launched with simultaneous tea parties in fifty cities which were
attended by more than 30,000 tea partiers. This was immediately followed by Tax Day Tea Party on April 15, 2009, when over 1 million tea partiers participated in rallies held in more than 900 cities.

Michelle Moore, organizer of the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition in February 2009, said "The St, Louis Tea Party will be happy to host this debate on February 25, 2012, the 3rd Anniversary of the movement. We think CNN, MSNBC, and FoxNews will be very interested in covering such an event."

Lorie Medina, founder of the Frisco, Texas Tea Party and creator of the Victory in a Box Get-out-the Vote program added, "We'll put forward the Tea Party's view of the proper constitutional role of the federal government. Ms. Wasserman Schultz can put forward the Democratic Party's view of the proper role of the federal government. We'll let the voters decide which view they agree with, and which view is extremist."

About Election Day Tea Party 2012: Election Day Tea Party 2012 is a project of the Nationwide Tea Party Coalition, an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on national projects.

I like physically assaulting people who provide services to me.

So the old man apparently didn't want his bill......

......on Saturday night, according to a complaint filed with the Palm Beach Police Department, he reacted to subpar service by calling his waiter a "schmuck" and breaking his finger. Castle and his wife Marianne, the complaint says, were having dinner at Club Colette, an elite Palm Beach private dining club (restaurants are for poors), when their waiter Paul Kucik made the unforgivable error of bringing them the check. Which is vulgar, I guess? From the report, which was first reported by the Palm Beach Daily News:
Kucik stated that Mrs. Castle requested that Kucik bring her their dinner bill. Kucik stated that when he returned to the Castles' dinner table, Mrs. Castle instructed him to give the bill to her husband, John Castle who was seated across the dinner table from her.
Kucik stated that he attempted to hand Mr. Castle the bill and Mr. Castle became irate with him and yelled, "You schmuck, why did you bring the bill to the table?" Kucik stated that he replied, "because your lady asked for it." Kucik stated while he stood on the left side of Mr. Castle, he (Kucik) attempted to hand Mr. Castle an ink pen. Mr. Castle began ranting and grabbed Kucik's left hand and began squeezing and twisting his fingers. Kucik stated that Mr. Castle had a very tight grip of his left hand and Kucik had to pull his left hand out of Mr. Castle`s grasp. Kucik stated he was not certain which hand Mr. Castle grabbed his left hand with, but he believed Mr. Castle used his right hand.
Kucik stated that he immediately notified his employer of the incident, but no action was taken. Kucik stated he began experiencing pains in his fingers as a result of Mr. Castle's actions. Kucik stated that on January 8, 2012 at 9:00 a.m., he went to the M.D. Walk-In Clinic located on Lantana Road. Kucik stated an X-Ray of his fingers indicated that his left ring finger was broken.

Gee, have YOU heard of the Gestapo? Welcome to Nazi America......

This is extremely scary......the DHS will set-up random ID check-points at the Social Security office but they won't do anything to secure our boarders?
Residents of Leesburg, Florida were shocked to see their local Social Security office turned into a random Homeland Security checkpoint Tuesday morning, as DHS officers armed with semiautomatic rifles and accompanied by sniffer dogs checked identifications of locals.
“With their blue and white SUVs circled around the Main Street office, at least one official was posted on the door with a semiautomatic rifle, randomly checking identifications. And other officers, some with K-9s, sifted through the building,” reports the Daily Commercial.
The activity was part of Operation Shield, an unannounced drill conducted by the DHS’ Federal Protective Service centered around “detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.”
 If you don't believe this shows how out-of-control this Administration is then I have lost all hope. There is no way ANY American can be ok with this.

People call me crazy for storing food in my basement, but then our government does stuff like this. They call this a "training exercise". What exactly are they training for? Is there soon going to be a need to suddenly verify the identity of American men, women and children?

Of course we wouldn't want to disenfranchise voters by requiring ID, but detaining Grandpa 'cause there is a mistake in his Social Security check is perfectly acceptable.

God help us all.........
