United States Declaration of Independence

“…The United States Declaration of Independence is a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain were now independent states, and thus no longer a part of the British Empire. Written primarily by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration is a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. The birthday of the United States of America—Independence Day—is celebrated on July 4, the day the wording of the Declaration was approved by Congress.

After finalizing the text on July 4, Congress issued the Declaration of Independence in several forms. It was initially published as a printed broadside that was widely distributed and read to the public. The most famous version of the Declaration, a signed copy that is usually regarded as the Declaration of Independence, is on display at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. According to most historians, Congress signed this document on August 2, 1776, and not on July 4, as is often believed.

The sources and interpretation of the Declaration have been the subject of much scholarly inquiry. The Declaration justified the independence of the United States by listing colonial grievances against King George III, and by asserting certain natural rights, including a right of revolution. Having served its original purpose in announcing independence, the text of the Declaration was initially ignored after the American Revolution. Its stature grew over the years, particularly the second sentence, a sweeping statement of human rights:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

This sentence has been called “one of the best-known sentences in the English language”[2] and “the most potent and consequential words in American history”.[3] The passage has often been used to promote the rights of marginalized groups, and came to represent for many people a moral standard for which the United States should strive. This view was greatly influenced by Abraham Lincoln, who considered the Declaration to be the foundation of his political philosophy,[4] and promoted the idea that the Declaration is a statement of principles through which the United States Constitution should be interpreted. …”

Neal Boortz just apologized for giving a hard time to the American people who are throwing  Tea Parties over the entire country.

Neal has been a great advocate for the FairTax and the co-author of two books on the subject:

 

Fair Tax – for our future!

 

Neal Boortz and Clark Howard off the cuff

 

I support the FairTax and suggested that the Tea Parties be used to promote the FairTax idea!

Make a Point on Tax Day 2009

“…April 15th–the single greatest reminder to every American of just how broken our national tax system is.

 This year our work is more important than ever before. Our battered economy can be healed with the FairTax.

Can you help us make that point during this dangerous time for our country?

 Our voices are needed. If we make our democracy work, we can move the FairTax closer to passage.

 It’s all about working together. Below, please find the perfect way for you to support the FairTax–and literally help save the nation.: …”

Tea Party update: Revolution is brewing

By Michelle Malkin  

“…Eric Odom reports that there are now 115 cities signed up for the April 15 nationwide Tax Day Tea Party protest. Wow. If you haven’t signed up, want to start your own, and are looking to meet up and organize with other tax revolters, go to Tax Day Tea Party’s website here.

Here’s a quick how-to guide.

  1. dontgo has opened up a Tax Day Tea Party store. Buy some swag, share with friends, spread the word.

Stay tuned to the Fresh Tea blog, where you can meet organizers from across the country. Check in with TCOT Report and Smart Girl Politics for more grass-roots organizing.

(On a parallel track, fellow Fox News colleague Glenn Beck has spearheaded “We Surround Them” parties scheduled across the country today. I’m hearing from lots of first-time activists who have found overlapping networks. The same principles that unite the “We Surround Them” effort also are in sync with the tax revolters. Synergy is good. We need every body and mind in motion we can get.)

In the meantime, other local Tea Party events keep rolling on.

No duh! White House “worried about bailout backlash”

By Michelle Malkin  

“…With a few notable exceptions, the national media has ignored the tax revolt movement against the porkulus package, omni-pork spending bill, and bottomless bailouts that began in Seattle on President’s Day; continued in Denver on the day of the Generational Theft Act signing; spread to Mesa AZ during President Obama’s massive mortgage entitlement push; spurred protest in Overland Park KS; and evolved into the Tea Party movement across the country.

But local politicians and local newspapers/TV are definitely on notice. Thousands of folks converging in places like St. Louis (1,500), Greenville (2,000), Fullerton (est. 15,000), and Cincinnati (5,000) are getting harder to ignore.

And now, it seems, word is getting around in Washington. The White House, the NYTimes (which has mocked the tax revolters) tells us, is worried about a populist backlash against bailout-mania. Naw. Really? You don’t say: …”

“What is far more important–and more dangerous–is that there is little sense of the institutions and traditions which produce the enormous good fortune of Americans–and therefore little or no sense of the dangers from letting those institutions and traditions erode or be pushed aside for the sake of some political goal of the moment. Much of the world today and down through centuries of history has suffered the terrible consequences of unbridled government power, the prime evil that the writers of the American Constitution sought to guard against. Judges who “interpret” constitutional safeguards out of existence for the sake of some ideological crusade, presidents who over-reach their authority for personal or political reasons, and a Congress whose powers are extended into matters that the Constitution never empowered them to legislate are all part of the quiet repeal of the American revolution.”

~Thomas Sowell, The Quest For Cosmic Justice, page 189.

State officials ban tea from Tea Party

By Michelle Malkin

“…Via Snapped Shot and STACLU comes news that Iowa state officials have banned the use of tea by Tea Party protesters holding an event tomorrow in Cedar Rapids.

The tea violates environmental standards because it will discolor the water:

A Cedar Rapids group will do a symbolic tea dumping into the Cedar River on Saturday because state officials won’t let them use the real thing.

An anti-tax group wanted to pitch in real tea like the Bostonian revolutionaries opposed to England’s tea taxes.

Tea, although natural and quite tasty, is considered a pollutant that can’t go into a body of water without a permit, said Mike Wade, a senior environmental specialist at the DNR’s Manchester field office.

“Discoloration is considered a violation,” Wade said.

What would our Founding Fathers say? …”

List of United States cities by population

“The following is a list of the most populous incorporated places in the United States. As defined by the United States Census Bureau, an incorporated place includes a variety of designations, including a city, town, village, borough, and municipality.[e] Some census-designated places may also be included in the Census Bureau’s listing of incorporated places.[b][c] Consolidated city-counties represent a distinct type of government that includes the entire population of a county, or county equivalent. Some consolidated city-counties, however, include multiple incorporated places. This list presents only that portion (or “balance”) of such consolidated city-counties that are not a part of another incorporated place.

Note that this list refers only to the population of individual municipalities within their defined limits, which does not include other municipalities or unincorporated suburban areas within urban agglomerations. A different ranking is evident when considering U.S. metropolitan area populations. …”

“When people lack jobs, opportunity, and ownership of property they have little or no stake in their communities.”

~Jack Kemp

 

 

I.O.U.S.A.

Tea Parties are spreading nationwide  protesting the fiscally irresponsible Federal and state government spending and huge increases in Federal budget deficits and the national debt including:

  1. Bailouts of banks and businesses totalling over $3 trillion or $3,000,000,000,000.
  2. Stimulus spending totalling over  $800 billion or $800,000,000,000
  3. Mortgage loan bailouts totalling over $275 billion or $275,000,000,000
  4. Over 9,000 earmarks  or special projects spending totalling over $7.7 billion or $7,700,000,000.
  5. A new Universal Health Care proposal the would cost over $634 billion  or $634,000,000,000 over a ten year period.
  6. A new cap and trade carbon tax on energy use that would tax the use of electricity, heating oil, gasoline and in turn raise the prices of all goods and service.
  7. Higher taxes on the top 2% of all taxpayers that already pay over 50% of all Federal Income Taxes collected.
  8. The above taxes on businesses would result in more job losses, higher unemployment rates and a prolonged and deeper recession.
  9. The first proposed budget of President Obama has a projected deficit of over $1.75 trillion or $1,750,000,000 the single largest deficit since World War II.
  10. The first proposed budget of President Obama is for $3.6 trillion or $3,600,000,000,000 and represents an increase from 21% to 28% of Gross Domestic Product !

The United States is broke yet our political class keeps on spending and piling debt upon debt and digging the American people into a financial hole for generations to come:

I.O.U.S.A. Bonus Reel: A $53 Trillion Federal Financial Hole

The political elites are bankrupting the country and passing the bill to the American family.

The political elites have for years spent the Social Security surplus on more government spending, but in nine years the Social Security surpluses will become deficits requiring either a cut in Social Security benefits or significantly higher Social Security taxes:

I.O.U.S.A. Bonus Reel: Social Security+Medicare Projections

I.O.U.S.A. Bonus Reel: Deficits and Social Security

Your own families are being attacked by the political elites of both political parties.

Irresponsible Federal and State government spending and programs will only take more and more of your hard-earned money out of your wallet and give it to the political friends of the political class–the redistribution of wealth–in a word socialism.

Looks like backdoor black reparations to many and the repeal of welfare reform and class warfare straight out of Karl Marx.

The Radical Socialists think they know how to spend your money better than you do.

The Radical Socialists in Congress and the Whitehouse aim to make you dependent on the government.

The Radical Socialists want to restrict your liberties including freedom of speech and the freedom to choose life, cars, homes, schools, colleges, jobs, health care insurance plans, retirement plans, guns, and even your favorite talk-show host.

The Radical Socialists want to wreck the US economy and destroy jobs by engaging in fiscally irresponsible behaviour.

The Radical Socialists have already damaged if not ruined our schools, bankrupt Social Security and Medicare, and now threatens your and your families lives by instituting socialized medicine or universal health care.

The Radical Socialists objective is destroy America’s free enterprise capitalist system and replace it with cradle to grave welfare socialism.

These economic policies failed in the 1930s in the United States, failed in Great Britain in the 1960s and 1970s and failed in Japan in the 1990s and in Great Britain today.

The Radical Socialists will also fail in the United States today as well.

The Second American Revolution has begin.

The blog posts of the internet are firing the first posts viewed around the world.

The time has come for the American people–the silent majority–to defend their families, homes, businesses, employers, jobs, wealth,  and freedoms from the Radical Socialists.

The Radical Socialists have pulled off their masks and revealed themselves.

Massive voter remorse will set in when those who voted for the Radical Socialists become unemployed and those with paychecks find out that tax cuts were lies as their food, gasoline and electrical bills significantly increase.

Starting in 2011 rising inflation rates will further errode the purchasing power of your paychecks.

The hardest hit will be the poor and those on a fixed income.

The Radical Socialists are  intentionally destroying the economy and creating a crisis by their irresponsible government spending.

The sooner the American people start resisting the Radical Socialists, the sooner the economy will recover and  economic growth and prosperity will return to America.

The aim of Operation Family Freedom (OFF) is to meet in Washington D.C. on July 4, 2009 and assembly peacefully at various Tea Party Celebrations of Liberty with the aim to pressure Congress and the President to pass both a six-month tax holiday and the FairTax:

Tea Parties Take Off In Texas–Spreading Nationwide–Are You Going To Washington Fair? Millions Celebrate The Second American Revolution–Saturday, July 4, 2009

American People’s Plan = 6 Month Tax Holiday + FairTax = Real Hope + Real Change!–Millions To March On Washington D.C. Saturday, July 4, 2009!

A six-month tax holiday will restore business and consumer confidence to start spending their incomes and bounce the US economy out of the recession.

The FairTax will encourage saving, investment and business formation and growth in the United States economy.

Both will mean a rapid and sustained increase in job creation and employment and a higher US gross domestic product.

Time to turn OFF all the bailouts, deficit spending, earmarks, rising taxes and a national debt that burdens future generations.

Tea Party update: Revolution is brewing

By Michelle Malkin  

“…Eric Odom reports that there are now 115 cities signed up for the April 15 nationwide Tax Day Tea Party protest. Wow. If you haven’t signed up, want to start your own, and are looking to meet up and organize with other tax revolters, go to Tax Day Tea Party’s website here.

Here’s a quick how-to guide.

  1. dontgo has opened up a Tax Day Tea Party store. Buy some swag, share with friends, spread the word.

Stay tuned to the Fresh Tea blog, where you can meet organizers from across the country. Check in with TCOT Report and Smart Girl Politics for more grass-roots organizing.

(On a parallel track, fellow Fox News colleague Glenn Beck has spearheaded “We Surround Them” parties scheduled across the country today. I’m hearing from lots of first-time activists who have found overlapping networks. The same principles that unite the “We Surround Them” effort also are in sync with the tax revolters. Synergy is good. We need every body and mind in motion we can get.)

In the meantime, other local Tea Party events keep rolling on.

No duh! White House “worried about bailout backlash”

By Michelle Malkin  

“…With a few notable exceptions, the national media has ignored the tax revolt movement against the porkulus package, omni-pork spending bill, and bottomless bailouts that began in Seattle on President’s Day; continued in Denver on the day of the Generational Theft Act signing; spread to Mesa AZ during President Obama’s massive mortgage entitlement push; spurred protest in Overland Park KS; and evolved into the Tea Party movement across the country.

But local politicians and local newspapers/TV are definitely on notice. Thousands of folks converging in places like St. Louis (1,500), Greenville (2,000), Fullerton (est. 15,000), and Cincinnati (5,000) are getting harder to ignore.

And now, it seems, word is getting around in Washington. The White House, the NYTimes (which has mocked the tax revolters) tells us, is worried about a populist backlash against bailout-mania. Naw. Really? You don’t say: …”

Lots of folks are only now hearing about the nationwide Tea Party events on Friday and beyond — as well as the pig roasts and anti-stimulus protests that paved the way for revolts across the country.

A reminder of the main resources for activists looking to join:

The New American Tea Party page from “a coalition of citizens and organizations concerned about the recent trend of fiscal recklessness in government…dedicated to the Washington, D.C. effort specifically sponsored by the American Spectator, the Heartland Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, Americans for Prosperity, and the Young Conservatives Coalition” is here.

The #TCOT has a site here and #dontgo has a list of links to official Facebook Event (and some non-Facebook) pages for each confirmed Chicago Tea Party.

PJTV’s clearinghouse for protests is here.

On Twitter, search “#teaparty” for the most up-to-date organizational info.

Glenn Reynolds has links to protest info in Nashville, Houston, D.C., St. Louis, San Diego, Atlanta, Orlando, Kansas City, and Cleveland. Glenn also has a related poll.

State officials ban tea from Tea Party

By Michelle Malkin

“…Via Snapped Shot and STACLU comes news that Iowa state officials have banned the use of tea by Tea Party protesters holding an event tomorrow in Cedar Rapids.

The tea violates environmental standards because it will discolor the water:

A Cedar Rapids group will do a symbolic tea dumping into the Cedar River on Saturday because state officials won’t let them use the real thing.

An anti-tax group wanted to pitch in real tea like the Bostonian revolutionaries opposed to England’s tea taxes.

Tea, although natural and quite tasty, is considered a pollutant that can’t go into a body of water without a permit, said Mike Wade, a senior environmental specialist at the DNR’s Manchester field office.

“Discoloration is considered a violation,” Wade said.

What would our Founding Fathers say? …”

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis

By James Simpson

“…America waits with bated breath while Washington struggles to bring the U.S. economy back from the brink of disaster. But many of those same politicians caused the crisis, and if left to their own devices will do so again.

Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama’s connections to his radical mentors — Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks.org have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama’s radical connections since the beginning.

Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama’s life comprise a who’s who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.

But even this doesn’t fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s. …”

President Barack Obama's Radical Socialist Network
President Barack Obama’s Radical Socialist Network

“…As a young attorney in the 1990s, Barack Obama represented ACORN in Washington in their successful efforts to expand Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) authority. In addition to making it easier for ACORN groups to force banks into making risky loans, this also paved the way for banks like Superior to package mortgages as investments, and for the Government Sponsored Enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to underwrite them. These changes created the conditions that ultimately lead to the current financial crisis.

Did they not know this would occur? Were these smart people, led by a Harvard graduate, unaware of the Econ 101 concept of moral hazard that would result from the government making implicit guarantees to underwrite private sector financial risk? They should have known that freeing the high-risk mortgage market of risk, calamity was sure to ensue. I think they did.

Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision. Their influence has spread so far and so wide that despite their blatant culpability in the current financial crisis, they are able to manipulate Capital Hill politicians to cut them into $140 billion of the bailout pie!

God grant those few responsible yet remaining in Washington, DC the strength to prevent this massive fraud from occurring. God grant them the courage to stand up in the face of this Marxist tidal wave.”

Does Obama Have a Double Standard on Earmarks?

“…On Tuesday evening, when President Barack Obama declared before a joint session of Congress that “we passed the recovery plan free of earmarks,” House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, popped out of their seats like jackrabbits for a standing ovation. On Wednesday, those same House Democrats, led by Pelosi, passed a budget with, by some counts, nearly 9,000 earmarks, worth an estimated $7.7 billion. …” “…The last eight years, spending got way out of control. The White House couldn’t put a check on Congress and the Congress wouldn’t put a check on the White House, so everyone spent what they wanted and we ended up with trillion-dollar deficits,” says Representative Jim Moran, a Virginia Democrat who nevertheless voted for the package. “We have a responsibility as Democrats to make sure that we don’t do that sort of thing — that when the White House is willing to make tough budgetary choices, that Congress plays a constructive role.” Apparently, that new responsible role doesn’t officially start until fiscal 2010.”

Obama’s Mortgage Relief Could Bailout 9 Million Homeowners

“…The President Barack Obama administration’s “Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan” could help as many as 9 million struggling homeowners, but largely those in lower-cost housing areas.

The $275 Billion Plan, with a March 4 rollout, includes a refinancing program for “responsible” borrowers who haven’t missed payments and whose loans are larger than the value of their homes, and a loan modification provision with incentives for lenders to voluntarily modify certain mortgages. …”

Beware of Cap and Trade Climate Bills

by Ben Lieberman

“…A Costly PropositionThese measures would set a limit, or cap, on carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel use. The effect of such a cap would be to impose rationing of coal, oil, and natural gas on the American economy. Each covered utility, oil company, and manufacturing facility would be given allowances based on past emissions or some other formula. Those companies that emit less carbon dioxide than permitted by their allowances could sell the excess to those that do not; this is the trade part of cap and trade. Over time, the cap would be ratcheted down, requiring greater cuts in emissions. …”

“…A Regressive Tax

By limiting the supply of fossil fuels, S. 2191 would raise the cost of energy. For consumers, cap and trade means more expensive gasoline and electricity as well as net job losses in energy-dependent sectors. Senator Lieberman himself concedes costs into the hundreds of billions of dollars. And as the Congressional Budget Office has noted, such energy cost increases act as a regressive tax on the poor.[8]

Lost Jobs

The net job losses from S. 2191 are estimated by Charles River Associates to be 1.2 million to 2.3 million by 2015.[9] Some of these jobs will be lost for good, due to the impact of higher energy costs on economic activity. Others, chiefly in the manufacturing sector, will be sent overseas. In the very likely event that S. 2191 significantly raises domestic manufacturing costs and that developing nations refuse to impose similar restrictions, the American economy could experience a substantial outsourcing of manufacturing jobs to those nations with lower energy costs.

Little Environmental Gain

While the costs of aggressive cap and trade proposals are substantial, the environmental benefits are suspect. This is true even if one fully accepts the claim of man-made global warming. The most ambitious measure to date is the Kyoto Protocol, but even if the U.S. were a party to this treaty and the European nations and other signatories were in full compliance (most are unlikely to meet their targets), the treaty would reduce the Earth’s future temperature by an estimated 0.07 degrees Celsius by 2050–an amount too small even to verify.[10] S. 2191 would at best do only a little more.  …”

Obama Proposes $634 Billion Fund For Health Care

Aides Call Money a ‘Down Payment’ Toward Universal-Coverage Efforts

By Ceci Connolly

“President Obama is proposing to begin a vast expansion of the U.S. health-care system by creating a $634 billion reserve fund over the next decade, launching an overhaul that most experts project will ultimately cost at least $1 trillion.

The “reserve fund” in the budget proposal being released today is Obama’s attempt to demonstrate how the country could extend health insurance to millions more Americans and at the same time begin to control escalating medical bills that threaten the solvency of families, businesses and the government.

Obama aims to make a “very substantial down payment” toward universal coverage by trimming tax breaks for the wealthy and squeezing payments to insurers, hospitals, doctors and drug manufacturers, a senior administration official said yesterday.

Embedded in the budget figures are key policy changes that the administration argues would improve the quality of care and bring much-needed efficiency to a health system that costs $2.3 trillion a year.

By first identifying a large pot of money to underwrite health-care reform — before laying out a proposal on who would be covered or how — Obama hopes to draw Congress to the bargaining table to tackle the details of a comprehensive plan. The strategy is largely intended to avoid the mistakes of the Clinton administration, which crafted an extensive proposal in secret for many months before delivering the finished product to lawmakers, who quickly rejected it. …”

The Obama Health Care Plan

Obama Budget Pushes Sweeping Change

$3.6 Trillion Plan Would Raise Taxes Sharply on the Affluent, Open Battles on Health, Education; The ‘Trickle Up’ Agenda

“President Barack Obama delivered a $3.6 trillion budget blueprint to Congress Thursday that aims to “break from a troubled past,” with expanded government activism, tax increases on affluent families and businesses, and spending cuts targeted at those he says profited from “an era of profound irresponsibility.”

The budget blueprint for fiscal year 2010 is one of the most ambitious policy prescriptions in decades, a reordering of the federal government to provide national health care, shift the energy economy away from oil and gas, and boost the federal commitment to education. …”

“…The budget’s introduction is likely to herald one of the fiercest political fights Washington has seen in years, waged on multiple fronts. Within minutes, Republicans were lambasting a document they called class warfare, designed to mire the nation in recession for years to come. Business lobbyists were girding for battle even before the budget’s unveiling. Even Democrats are likely to blanch at cuts to agriculture and other programs that have been tried before – and have failed repeatedly.

The budget sets aside an additional $250 billion to complete the president’s effort to rescue the financial markets and stabilize the banking sector. That would come on top of the $700 billion already allocated by Congress. And it is likely to grow. The budget makes clear that the reserve would be used to leverage the purchase of toxic assets weighing down the banking sector’s books, $750 billion in asset purchases overall. That could mean a doubling of the original bailout in the end. …”

Editorial: Obama budget is too heavy on taxes, spending

The Detroit News

“…President Barack Obama’s proposed budget outline assumes tax increases don’t affect behavior. They do. It also assumes Congress will end its spending spree. It won’t. If all of the programs in the budget plan become law, tax increases will affect more Americans than the high-income earners targeted in this proposal, and the economy will suffer.

The president’s outline for a 2010 budget, and a blueprint covering the next decade, was released Thursday. The plan sees $3.9 trillion in spending in the current budget year, with a deficit of $1.7 trillion, a shortfall equal to more than 12 percent of the nation’s $14.2 trillion gross domestic product. That kind of deficit as a share of the nation’s total economic output hasn’t occurred since World War II.

And while short-term deficit spending is necessary to jolt the nation out of recession, Obama’s plan advances spending far beyond what’s necessary for stimulus and for the long term. …”

“…Raise the cost of extra effort and risky investments, the kind that make the economy grow, and the result will be less economic activity.

The budget optimistically assumes inflation-adjusted GDP growth rates of 3.2 percent in 2010, 4 percent in 2011 and 4.2 percent in 2012, but the private Blue Chip Consensus forecast for the same years is 2.1 percent, 2.9 percent and 2.9 percent. It’s also worth noting that many of the proposed tax hikes for upper-income families go into effect in 2011, just when the Obama budget foresees a sharp increase in economic growth.

Those higher taxes could very well derail that anticipated rebound.

The Obama budget also expects reductions in spending to help reduce the deficit over the next several years. But is this realistic when the House of Representatives just adopted a $410 billion spending plan for the remainder of this budget year that is generously larded with pork and includes an average increase for domestic agencies of 8 percent? …”

The FairTax: It’s Time

 

This morning I turned on a local talk radio station and the host was reading a list of Tea Parties in Texas both locally and in other cities protesting the irresponsible stimulus package, bailouts of banks and businesses and new taxes including the cap and trade carbon tax.

The talk show host was also suggesting several other locations that would make good sites such as  local lakes in the area.

Later that day I turned on the radio in my car to another station and the local news also mentioned the Texas Tea Party protests.

The problem with the professional political class or elites of both parties  in Washington D.C. is they are disconnected from the American people.

The American people are mad and outraged about bank nationalization or socialization, bank and business bailouts, so-called stimulus spending bills, ear marks or “special projects” and more taxes such as the cap and trade carbon tax on electricity, heating oil, and gasoline that will result in rising prices for all goods and services.

The American people need to get the Washington D.C. political elites attention.

Why not have a Washington D.C. Fair on July 4, 2009 with multiple tea parties all over the city?

Bring the entire family, friends, and neighbors.

Learn about the First American Revolution.

Watch the movie The Patriot:

The Patriot-John Williams

“A Mel Gibson film,one of my favourate films,and I love the music very much,so,I made this.

The Patriot tells the story of Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson), a widowed father of seven children, as he tries to keep his family together during the Revolutionary War. He had fought in the French and Indian War, since married and started a family. He has tried to put his actions in that war behind him, but still carries some guilt and regret from those actions. He fears that his past will come back to haunt him.

When war breaks out, his eldest son Gabriel (Heath Ledger) joins the fight against his wishes. Benjamin soon ends up reluctantly joining the fight as well. His successfully leads a militia band against the British until Colonel William Tavington (Jason Isaacs) is ordered to do everything he can to capture or kill Martin and his South Carolina militia. …”

Parsley, sage, Rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt,
parsley, sage, Rosemary and thyme.
Without any seam or fine nedlework,
and then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to wash it yonder dry well,
parsley, sage, Rosemary and thyme.
Where water ne’er sprung, nor drop of rain fell,
and then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell her to dry it yonder thorn,
parsley, sage, Rosemary and thyme.
Which never bore blossom since Adam was born,
and then she’ll be a true love of mine.

Oh, will you find me an acre of land,
parsley, sage, Rosemary and thyme.
Between the sea foam and the sea sand,
or never be a true love of mine

Tea Party USA Watch: Party planning continues; Sen. DeMint: “People have to show that they’re not going to take it anymore”

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2009 02:32 PM

 


(Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti)

Lots of folks are only now hearing about the nationwide Tea Party events on Friday and beyond — as well as the pig roasts and anti-stimulus protests that paved the way for revolts across the country.

A reminder of the main resources for activists looking to join:

The New American Tea Party page from “a coalition of citizens and organizations concerned about the recent trend of fiscal recklessness in government…dedicated to the Washington, D.C. effort specifically sponsored by the American Spectator, the Heartland Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, Americans for Prosperity, and the Young Conservatives Coalition” is here.

The #TCOT has a site here and #dontgo has a list of links to official Facebook Event (and some non-Facebook) pages for each confirmed Chicago Tea Party.

PJTV’s clearinghouse for protests is here.

On Twitter, search “#teaparty” for the most up-to-date organizational info.

Glenn Reynolds has links to protest info in Nashville, Houston, D.C., St. Louis, San Diego, Atlanta, Orlando, Kansas City, and Cleveland. Glenn also has a related poll.

American Revolution: The Boston Tea Party

 

The Cowpens Flag

The Cowpens Flag

 

The Patriot Battle–Hold The Line

“The Battle of Cowpens (January 17, 1781) was an decisive victory by American Revolutionary forces under Brigadier General Daniel Morgan, in the Southern campaign of the American Revolutionary War. It was a turning point in the reconquest of South Carolina from the British, and an American tactical masterpiece. It was an awesome victory for the Americans. …”

“Daniel Morgan knew that he should use the unique landscape of Cowpens and the time available before Tarleton’s arrival to his advantage. Furthermore, he knew his men and his opponent, knew how they would react in certain situations, and used this knowledge to his advantage.[27] To begin with, the location of his forces were contrary to any existing military doctrine: he placed his army between the Broad and Pacolet River, thus making escape impossible if the army was routed. His reason for cutting off escape was obvious: to ensure that the untrained militiamen would not, as they had been accustomed to do, turn in flight at the first hint of battle and abandon the regulars. Selecting a hill as the center of his position, he placed his Continental infantry on it, deliberately leaving his flanks exposed to his opponent. Morgan reasoned that Tarleton would attack him head on, and he made his tactical preparations accordingly. He set up three lines of soldiers: one of skirmishers (sharpshooters); one of militia; and a main one. The 150 select skirmishers were from North Carolina (Major McDowell) and Georgia (Major Cunningham). Behind these men were 300 militiamen under the command of Andrew Pickens.

Realizing that poorly-trained militia were unreliable in battle, especially when they were under attack from cavalry, Morgan decided to ask the militia to fire two shots and then retreat, so he could have them re-form under cover of the reserve (cavalry commanded by William Washington and James McCall) behind the third, more experienced line of militia and continentals. The movement of the militia in the second line would mask the third line to the British. The third line, composed of the remainder of the forces (about 550 men) was composed of Continentals from Delaware and Maryland, and militiamen from Georgia and Virginia. Colonel John Eager Howard commanded the Continentals and Colonels Tate and Triplett the militia. The goal of this strategy was to weaken and disorganize Tarleton’s forces (which would be attacking the third line uphill) before attacking and defeating them. Howard’s men would not be unnerved by the militia’s expected move, and unlike the militia they would be able to stand and hold, especially since the first and second lines, Morgan felt, would have inflicted both physical and psychological damage on the advancing British before the third line came into action.

Additionally, by placing his men downhill from the advancing British lines, Morgan exploited the British tendency to fire too high in battle. The downhill position of his forces allowed the British forces to be silhouetted against the morning sunlight, providing easy targets for Patriot troops. With a ravine on their right flank and a creek on their left flank, Morgan’s forces were protected against British flanking maneuvers at the beginning of the battle. Morgan insisted,[28]

“the whole idea is to lead Benny [Tarleton] into a trap so we can beat his cavalry and infantry as they come up those slopes. When they’ve been cut down to size by our fire, we’ll attack them.”

In developing his tactics at Cowpens, as historian John Buchanan wrote, Morgan may have been “the only general in the American Revolution, on either side, to produce a significant original tactical thought.”

Scarborough Fair

“”Scarborough Fair” was a traditional English fair, and is also a traditional English ballad.

The fair

During the late Middle Ages the seaside town of Scarborough (now a resort) was an important venue for tradesmen from all over England. It was host to a huge 45-day trading event, starting August 15, which was exceptionally long for a fair in those times. Merchants came to it from all areas of England, Europe, Norway, Denmark, the Baltic and the Byzantine Empire. Scarborough Fair originated from a charter granted by King Henry III of England on 22 January 1253. The charter, which gave Scarborough many privileges, stated “The Burgesses and their heirs forever may have a yearly fayre in the Borough, to continue from the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary until the Feast of St Michael next following”. (On the modern Roman Catholic calendar, the equivalent dates are August 15 to September 29.) Naturally, such a large occasion attracted a lot more than just tradesmen; they needed to be entertained and fed, therefore large crowds of buyers, sellers and pleasure-seekers attended the fair. Prices were determined by ‘Supply and demand’, with goods often being exchanged through the barter system. Records show that from 1383 Scarborough’s prosperity slumped.

In the early 17th century competition from other towns’ markets and fairs and increasing taxation saw further collapse of the Fair until it eventually became financially untenable. The market was revived again in the 18th century, but due to intense competition Scarborough Fair finally ended in 1788.

The traditional ‘Scarborough Fair’ no longer exists but a number of low-key celebrations take place every September to mark the original event. Scarborough Fair in July 2006 witnessed Medieval Jousting Competitions, hosted by English Heritage in addition to the usual attractions.

The ballad

The song tells the tale of a young man, who tells the listener to ask his former lover to perform for him a series of impossible tasks, such as making him a shirt without a seam and then washing it in a dry well, adding that if she completes these tasks he will take her back. Often the song is sung as a duet, with the woman then giving her lover a series of equally impossible tasks, promising to give him his seamless shirt once he has finished.

As the versions of the ballad known under the title “Scarborough Fair” are usually limited to the exchange of these impossible tasks, many suggestions concerning the plot have been proposed, including the hypothesis that it is a song about the Plague. In fact, “Scarborough Fair” appears to derive from an older (and now obscure) Scottish ballad, The Elfin Knight (Child Ballad #2), which has been traced at least as far back as 1670 and may well be earlier. In this ballad, an elf threatens to abduct a young woman to be his lover unless she can perform an impossible task (“For thou must shape a sark to me / Without any cut or heme, quoth he”); she responds with a list of tasks that he must first perform (“I have an aiker of good ley-land / Which lyeth low by yon sea-strand”).

As the song spread, it was adapted, modified, and rewritten to the point that dozens of versions existed by the end of the 18th century, although only a few are typically sung nowadays. The references to “Scarborough Fair” and the refrain “parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme” date to nineteenth century versions, and the refrain may have been borrowed from the ballad Riddles Wisely Expounded, (Child Ballad #1), which has a similar plot. …”

No duh! White House “worried about bailout backlash”

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 16, 2009 10:05 AM

“…With a few notable exceptions, the national media has ignored the tax revolt movement against the porkulus package, omni-pork spending bill, and bottomless bailouts that began in Seattle on President’s Day; continued in Denver on the day of the Generational Theft Act signing; spread to Mesa AZ during President Obama’s massive mortgage entitlement push; spurred protest in Overland Park KS; and evolved into the Tea Party movement across the country.

But local politicians and local newspapers/TV are definitely on notice. Thousands of folks converging in places like St. Louis (1,500), Greenville (2,000), Fullerton (est. 15,000), and Cincinnati (5,000) are getting harder to ignore.

And now, it seems, word is getting around in Washington. The White House, the NYTimes (which has mocked the tax revolters) tells us, is worried about a populist backlash against bailout-mania. Naw. Really? You don’t say: …”

Congress should forget about bailing out any business including the auto companies.

Congress should also forget about any new spending programs.

Why?

The United States is broke!

Both political parties are not leveling with the American people and are in deep denial about the nature and magnitude of the problem–the Federal government is in a financial hole–it is broke.

The Federal Government has been spending beyond the means of the American people to pay!

Time for a tax revolt and the implementation of The FairTax!

The FairTax addresses all our economic problems from the foundation up.

The FairTax addresses all our economic problems from the foundation up.

Save The Economy Now: The FairTax

Rescue the homeowner and you rescue the economy
When the federal government ends the destructive practice of withholding taxes from paychecks millions of Americans will see a huge boost in their take home pay–enough to save their homes and pay mortgage bills.

A $10 trillion dollar stimulus program funded with private investments
Economists say the FairTax will attract literally trillions of dollars into our economy from offshore. That means new jobs right here in America, higher wages and a stock market that goes up instead of down.

Bring Back the “Made in America” Label
The FairTax ends the retail price disadvantage American producers suffer under the income tax system. The income tax system adds up to 20% to the price of American products and that chases our manufacturing and service industries offshore. The FairTax gives American companies–and jobs–a fair chance.

Our economy works when wage earners prosper
The FairTax makes our economy works again and restores consumer confidence by putting more money in wage earners’ pockets. It attacks the problem at the base of the pyramid where average people live–not at the pinnacle. It ends the tax disincentives to upward mobility, savings, investment and capital formation.

Fair Tax

“The FairTax is a proposed change to the federal tax laws of the United States that would replace all federal income taxes[1] with a single national retail sales tax. The plan has been introduced into the United States Congress as the Fair Tax Act (H.R. 25/S. 1025). The tax would be levied once at the point of purchase on all new goods and services for personal consumption. The proposal also calls for a monthly payment to all family households of lawful U.S. residents as an advance rebate, or ‘prebate’, of tax on purchases up to the poverty level.[2][3] The sales tax rate, as defined in the legislation, is 23 percent of the total payment including the tax ($23 of every $100 spent in total—calculated similar to income taxes). This would be equivalent to a 30 percent traditional U.S. sales tax ($23 on top of every $77 spent before taxes).[4]

With the rebate taken into consideration, the FairTax would be progressive on consumption,[3] but would also be regressive on income at higher income levels (as consumption falls as a percentage of income).[5][6] Opponents argue this would accordingly decrease the tax burden on high income earners and increase it on the middle class.[4][7] Supporters contend that the plan would decrease tax burdens by broadening the tax base, effectively taxing wealth, and increasing purchasing power.[8][9] The plan’s supporters also argue that a consumption tax would have a positive effect on savings and investment, that it would ease tax compliance, and that the tax would result in increased economic growth, incentives for international business to locate in the U.S., and increased U.S. competitiveness in international trade.[10][11][12] Opponents contend that a consumption tax of this size would be extremely difficult to collect, and would lead to pervasive tax evasion.[5][4] They also argue that the proposed sales tax rate would raise less revenue than the current tax system, leading to an increased budget deficit.[4][13]

In recent years, a tax reform movement has formed behind the FairTax proposal.[14] Increased support was created after talk radio personality Neal Boortz and Georgia Congressman John Linder published The FairTax Book in 2005 and additional visibility was gained in the 2008 presidential campaign. A number of congressional committees have heard testimony on the bill; however, it has not moved from committee since its introduction in 1999 and has yet to have any effect on the tax system. The plan is expected to increase cost transparency for funding the federal government, and supporters believe it would have positive effects on civil liberties, the environment, and advantages with taxing illegal activity and illegal immigrants.[10][15] There are concerns regarding the proposed repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment, removal of tax deduction incentives, transition effects on after-tax savings, effect to the income tax industry, incentives on credit use, and the loss of tax advantages to state and local bonds. …”

United States public debt

“The United States total public debt, commonly called the national debt, or U.S. government debt, is the amount of money owed by the United States federal government to holders of U.S. debt instruments. Debt held by the public is all federal debt held by states, corporations, individuals, and foreign governments, but does not include intragovernmental debt obligations or debt held in the Social Security Trust Fund. Types of securities held by the public include, but are not limited to, Treasury Bills, Notes, Bonds, TIPS, United States Savings Bonds, and State and Local Government Series securities.[1]

As of November 19, 2008, the total U.S. federal debt was $10.6 trillion.[2], with about $37,316 per capita (that is, per U.S. resident). Of this amount, debt held by the public was roughly $6.3 trillion.[3] Adding unfunded Medicaid, Social Security, Medicare, veterans’ pensions, and similar obligations, this figure rises to a total of $59.1 trillion, or $516,348 per household.[4] In 2007, the public debt was 36.9 percent of GDP [5], with a total debt of 65.5 percent of GDP.[6] The CIA ranked the total percentage as 27th in the world.[7]

Public debt is the amount owed by the government to its creditors, whether they are nationals or foreigners. External debt is the debt of all sectors of the economy (public and private), owed to foreigners. In the U.S., foreign ownership of the public debt is a significant part of the nation’s external debt. The Bureau of the Public Debt, a division of the United States Department of the Treasury, calculates the amount of money owed by the national government on a daily basis.[8][9][10][11]

The total debt has increased over $500 billion each year since FY 2003, considering both budgeted and non-budgeted spending.[12] The annual US budget deficit declined from $318 billion in 2005 to $162 billion in 2007,[13] but increased to $455 billion in 2008.[14]Since FY 2002, the deficit reported by the media has been significantly less than the annual change in the debt, which surpassed $1 trillion for the first time in FY 2008.[15]

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the U.S. Treasury Department have warned that debt levels will increase dramatically relative to historical levels, due primarily to mandatory expenditures for programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and interest. Mandatory expenditures are projected to exceed federal tax revenues sometime between 2030 and 2040 if reforms are not undertaken. Further, benefits under entitlement programs will exceed government income by over $40 trillion over the next 75 years.[16] The severity of the measures necessary to address this challenge increases the longer such changes are delayed. These organizations have stated that the government’s current fiscal path is “unsustainable.”[17]

GOP bailout stooge to Cavuto: “It’s not your money”

By Michelle Malkin  

“…Behold the hubris of an entrenched Republican congressman shilling for the auto bailout. His name is Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Michigan) and you’ll be happy to know that he lost his re-election bid.

Attention, Republicans obsessed with “re-branding” the party and crafting appealing messages to win back voters. Here’s your textbook example of how not to act and what not to say if you want to restore credibility to conservatism: …”
