It seems daily we discover new ways Obama is going to take money from you regardless of your status in American. It's not just the rich that's going to be hit hard. As we found out today, the Obama budget calls for the creation of the Automatic Workplace Pension. Since Social Security failed, they are going to try again and give it a different name. Regardless you will continue to pay at least 6% if you aren't self-employed, 12% if you are self-employed, and those rates will probably rise. Plus you will this additional money removed from your check. Obama lied when he said there would be no tax increases on the middle class. They are coming fast now.
It is called Automatic Workplace Pension which does the following: employees will be automatically enrolled in workplace pension plans. Employers who do not currently offer a retirement plan will be required to enroll their employees in a direct-deposit IRA account that is compatible with existing direct-deposit payroll systems.
Everyone be sure to visit Voice for Moms and give her a big thanks for this find. More freedoms are dying under Obama, and they are getting more of your money no matter how much you make.
Obama's Military Strategy: The Real Reason Obama is Leaving Troops in Iraq and Increasing Forces in Afghanistan
- As Obama der Fuhrer maneuvered against the Constitution to gain power not granted to him, state legislatures across the nation began to react with sovereignty bills. New Hampshire's HCR-6 gained national exposure inspiring other states to move forward with theirs. If Obama is to be defeated, it must be done by restoring the states rights and described in the Federalist Papers. New Hampshire's HCR-6 Demands Return of Power to New Hampshire based on Jeffersonian/Constitutional Principles.
- The liberal came out in numbers to attack me for attacking the Democrats and their weatherization. They failed to understand how insulted I was by Democrats, who attempt in some communities in this country, to steal another right of mine while spending billions on weatherization.
- Travis the Chimp was big news this month. The death of Travis sparked a fierce political debate over a political cartoon. For years, Democrats and liberals got away with comparing George W. Bush to a chimpanzee (not the #3 blog, but worth your time), but compare Pelosi and Congress to a monkey, and the libs quickly throw the race card. It really shows the ignorance of the liberal media and liberals in general. They tried to say the chimp was Obama, but Obama asked for the stimulus bill. He didn't write it. That means Pelosi and company represents the chimpanzee. The blog covering the Travis the Chimp political cartoon is number 3 for February.
- A simple inventor named Alfred Brock was a little excited about his new invention. He wanted to show it to Dear Leader, and was arrested outside of the White House. Police found a gun in the truck. He was later released.
- New Hampshire HCR-6 hit a road block during early debate. We hope they keep fighting and declare their right to sovereignty.
- Michael Phelps was stupid enough to have his pictures taken of him with a bong. I was amazed at the stupider people who came to my site and didn't read what I wrote and commented disregarding the real issue. Phelps broke the rules of USA Swimming. They aren't my rules, but they are rules he agreed to when he applied for their license to allow him to swim in their events. He was deserving of his three month suspension from the sport.
- The popularity of the New Hampshire HCR-6 blogs show that we aren't a nation who all bow down to Obama's feet. Many of us are quite fearful of his desires to change the United States to his interpretation of a socialist Utopia.
- The next position really bothers me. I think the people coming to my site were looking for information about the video game which you score points for raping young women. Judging from my search terms that brought them to my site, I judge they were wanting to play the game or at least see what it was about. RapeLay was banned from Amazon earlier this month.
- The next blog is a blog I didn't write, but it showed the evils of Obama's intentions hidden in the stimulus plan. The nationwide patient health care database is one of the first steps to nationalizing health care in this country. In recent days the Obama administration has run from terms like nationalization and Fairness Doctrine, but as we discovered with the Fairness Doctrine, they can pass a Fairness Doctrine without calling it a Fairness Doctrine. Does anyone remember the HBO show Not Necessarily the News? They used to play a video clip of Dan Rather, sounding rather stupid, saying if it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck. Well, remember that when it comes to Obama.
- Not all entertainers support Obama. Etta James said a few colorful words about Obama this month, and she made the top ten at Bungalow Bill's Conservative Wisdom.
Since Obama's Redistribution of Wealth Plans Are Moving Forward, Let's Reexamine the Redistribution of Wealth Game
Friday, February 27, 2009
I stood with about 300 other patriotic Americans who don't want to see Obama turn this country into a socialist hell. We don't believe in Utopia. As I stood there saying the Pledge of Allegiance, a tear rolled down my eye. I felt like I have been watching my country die. We were all there to protest something that may be hard to stop, and it's not like people weren't warned. There's a reason why Joe the Plumber was the bad guy. He exposed all of what was about to take place.
I listened to Mark Levin on the way home. He predicted the yuppies and quasi yuppies living in suburbia would soon wake up and turn on Obama. Of course Obama will have already raised their taxes, Social Security, and Medicare rates. How could anyone doubt it's coming now?
Here's my totals:
This is Chuck Knight, who I met in 1992 while working on the reelection of George H.W. Bush at the Greene County Republican Headquarters. We both miss Sarge and know he would have been there today if he was still with us.
Please watch both videos:
These Marines have sworn to protect the Constitution of the United States first and before carrying out the orders of the President of the United States. I think we know whose side they are on.
Food Stamps Rise at the Fastest Rate in Missouri's History Under Governor Nixon: Governor Nixon's Reversal of the Blunt Welfare Reforms Hurting State
The First Report from the Springfield, Missouri Tea Party: Springfield, Missouri Patriots Gather to Protest Obama, Stimulus, Spending, and Taxes
The ceremony began with an introduction by Vincent David Jericho, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Star Spangled Banner. The history of the tea party was highlighted and placed in a modern perspective. Everyone formed two lines and dumped the tea into plastic bags. There are three tentative plans for the tea, but the favorite was to send the tea to Senator Jim DeMint who plans to dump the total accumulated tea on the floor of the Senate.
After the tea was dumped in the bag, various members of the community gave patriotic speeches. I had to cut the event short to get back to work. I will post pictures of the event later this evening.
Here’s the reply from Mike “King Dude” Church.
Oooh! Well done my friend.
Tomorrow is VERY busy for us BUT if I have time I will very much enjoy sharing your outrage with the audience. Thanks and keep up the pressure!
Mike sent me a second e-mail later in the evening, after I discussed my goals. He said something we all need to keep in mind.
We are not helpless we are powerless at this point but in numbers we will grow. Keep writing!
Mike Church is the only reason I kept my Sirius subscription and turned it into a lifetime subscription. He has an amazing conservative show that’s deeply rooted in the Constitution. He is the reason to get Sirius. Andrew Wilkow follows Mike, but I have been a Ditto Head for nearly twenty years. When Rush has a guest host, I listen to the Wilkow Majority on Sirius.
Governor Jay Nixon Exposes the Evil Truth About the Democrat Party, Yeah, It's for the Children All Right
Bill Clinton used it's for the children to create pathos for his many of his programs, and the children didn't grow up with Clinton. Remember the ponytailed guy in the debate begging the candidates to pretend we're your children and then wanting to know how the candidates were going to take care of him if they were the President.
The 2008 election saw its share of children. Once again they were a theme for health care and welfare. In reality, they are mere steps to nationalized health care. Hillary tried topping the LBJ ad with the 3 A.M. ad in hopes to derail Obama. She forgot one thing. We never saw Hillary as the loving mother. She was always the ambitious power grabber.
Obama had the brainwashed sounding children singing his praises (little did they know how much it was going to cost to sing to Obama). Obama quickly acted to fill his promise to make sure all children were covered medically with SCHIP, even the older children like the guy at the Clinton debate. Yes a common theme of the Democrats is ‘it’s for the children.’
We found out what for the children means thanks to the stimulus bloated Governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon. That's right, Jeremiah J. Nixon explained in detail this week what for the children mean. It means we are spending money so rapidly but we don't have to worry about it. We plan to pass it off to Missouri's children and grandchildren. It's for the children all right.
You see, I am tired of the Democrats using children to drum up meaningless campaign rhetoric. They view children like they view you and I. They are future taxpayers just like most of us were future taxpayers at one point in our lives. There's only two things the Democrats care about, you vote and getting as much of your income as they can. There's nothing patriotic about the Democratic party these days. In fact, what Governor Nixon said this week is far worse than anything they have former Governor Rod Blagojevich saying. Why is that? Those of us who lived in Illinois under Blagojevich knew he was full of it. It was no surprise when it came out. Governor Blagojevich disgraced his office. What Governor Nixon said was the equivalent of spitting on each child not only in Missouri, but across our nation.
I should thank Governor Nixon at the same time. After all, he once again showed the true colors of the Democrats. Not only that, but he removed the for the children argument out of politics. I am willing to bet on one truth about Governor Nixon. I bet his courage is limited to C-Span. I am challenging Governor Nixon to come to Southwest Missouri and tell the parents and the children in Southwest Missouri, and across the state for that matter, who is going to pay for this massive debt occurred by the Obama spending spree. He's welcome to come to my house for coffee to discuss this matter with me. I want him to look the children in the face and tell them how much each child in the country is going to be responsible for once they graduate from high school and join the ranks of taxpayers. Something tells me Nixon doesn't have the balls to tell the children what he told a faceless talking-head on C-Span. We shall see.

One Man, Many Taxes, 365 Days: Day 57 | The New Era of Carbon Taxes and a Trillion Dollars in Other New Taxes
It looks like corporations will be taxed for their carbon output with the announcement of Obama’s Carbon Permits. Permit is a nice word for tax. Think about it. When you buy a hunting permit, you are paying a tax to be given a right. In this case, you are given the right to hunt. Now industries will have to purchase a permit to produce. The same guy who is convincing you he can save the economy, is regulating the hell out of the businesses that are key to saving the economy. Why is this so hard for a man, who we are told is so, so smart, to understand?
Those of us who really know Barack Obama know once these permits become law, industry regulations choke the remaining American industries, and Americans are forced to cars smaller than Mini Coopers, global warming, according to Obama and the liberals will be worse than they first believed when they passed these restrictive laws in 2009. They will raise carbon taxes higher and create new carbon taxes. Those who celebrate the carbon permit know not what they have just done.
Obama announced nearly a trillion dollars in new taxes today. He doesn't have a clue how to jump start the economy. Here's a breakdown of how the government is going to steal more for you. Yup, this is the change 46% of voters didn't ask for, but will get ripped off nonetheless.
On people making more than $250,000 (Count on this number coming way down, say like to $60,000, since the math doesn't add up based on the number of taxpayers at that rate.):
$338 billion - Bush tax cuts expire (we all get a tax increase, not just the $250,000)
$179 billlion - eliminate itemized deduction
$118 billion - capital gains tax hike
Total: $636 billion/10 years
$17 billion - Reinstate Superfund taxes
$24 billion - tax carried-interest as income
$5 billion - codify "economic substance doctrine"
$61 billion - repeal LIFO
$210 billion - international enforcement, reform deferral, other tax reform
$4 billion - information reporting for rental payments
$5.3 billion - excise tax on Gulf of Mexico oil and gas
$3.4 billion - repeal expensing of tangible drilling costs
$62 million - repeal deduction for tertiary injectants
$49 million - repeal passive loss exception for working interests in oil and natural gas properties
$13 billion - repeal manufacturing tax deduction for oil and natural gas companies
$1 billion - increase to 7 years geological and geophysical amortization period for independent producers
$882 million - eliminate advanced earned income tax credit
Total: $353 billion/10 years
All these new taxes will cause even more havoc on the economy.
For years, I have heard the Democrats fill campaign speeches with it’s for the children to justify wasteful spending and new taxes--taxes which often rob families of the extra money needed to enjoy quality time together on vacations and weekend getaways. When I was a child, my dad earned enough to take care of our family. As a teenager, the tax burden combined with the cost of living took away from the family time we once shared and forced my mother to find work.
Earlier this week, I found out what for the children really means. For Democrats, who have gone on a spending spree in Washington unparallel to any time in our nation’s history, children are simply the next generation of American taxpayers to pay for this reckless spending. On C-Span this week, when asked about the stimulus, without any remorse you said we would spend the stimulus money in Missouri and pass the expense of our government’s mistakes to Missouri’s kids and grandkids.
It must be easy to tell a C-Span reporter the truth. What shocked me most was the lack of regret in your answer. It seemed no big deal to you that our current administration is creating a debt that will be passed on to generations of Americans. Well Mr. Nixon, that hasn’t set well with me the more I consider your words.
Instead of telling a C-Span reporter, I want you to visit my home and tell the children in my life what all of this debt means to their future. You owe them an apology sir for your careless words, which I have no doubt is the way you feel. This spending spree isn’t a game so you can get your name on as many buildings in Missouri during your term as Governor. This is a debt that’s going to have long-term consequences in Missouri and our nation. Frankly, I am tired of the Democrats lack of respect towards taxpayers, our country, and most importantly the next generations of Americans.
So Mr. Nixon, I am demanding you come to my home and tell these children what this debt means to them.
This letter has been submitted to Governor Nixon, KY3, KOLR 10, KSFX 27, KSPR 33, The Springfield News Leader, the Mike Church show on Sirius Patriot, and the Vincent David Jericho radio program.
Defeat Obama and the Democrats With the Power of the Federalist Papers: Contact Your Representatives Today
My two U.S. Senators are:
Christopher ‘Kit’ Bond-R
My representative in Congress is Roy Blunt-R, 7th Congressional district in Missouri.
My state senator is Dan Clemons-R, district 020.
My state representative is Raymond Weter-R, district 142.
You can easily find out this information at www.votesmart .org with your nine-digit zip code. This is the first part of the assignment. It’s essential you collect every person who represents you in the legislative branch of your state and federal government.
The next part of defeating Obama and the Democrats is restoring power back to the states like Thomas Jefferson and the forefathers prescribed when they wrote the Federalist Papers which led to ratifying the Constitution. The Federalist Papers are the backbone of the Constitution and what you should read before interpreting the Constitution.
Many states like New Hampshire (HCR-6) and Missouri (HR-212) introduced sovereignty bills during the past few months. These bills reduce the roles of the federal government and restore it to the states. We need to discover which legislators support limiting the power of the federal government and restoring the power of the states.
Now you need to contact each of the legislators listed above and send them the following e-mail.
I am concerned by the growing power and size of the federal government. Many states have recently introduced sovereignty bills to return the power to the states based on the Federalist Papers and the Constitution. What are your thoughts about a sovereignty bill in our state?
I appreciate your opinion,
If that legislator supports the sovereignty bill in your state, then add a point to the voting scoreboard in their favor. If they don’t, do not vote for the legislator when they run for reelection. If a Republican says they support it, mark two strikes against them. This is the only way we are going to defeat the Democrats run on power in this country. The states must stand up for their rights.
The Obama Disclaimers: Holding the President to the Same Language Government Standards Imposed on Advertisers
The permits are required for any company that releases green house gasses linked to global warming. Does anyone else see the danger with this? Don’t all companies release CO2 just by hiring people who breathe? Obama includes carbon dioxide, an essential gas for life on earth.
The plan lacks details currently, but the Obama administration predicts the permits will be required by 2012. It will follow the cap-and-trade system. The government will place a limit—a cap—and when that cap is reached, the taxman cometh. No doubt, the corporations will be forced into purchasing the equipment needed to monitor their emissions, and there will be some punk from the government watching them like a hawk, getting in the way of their production, and furthering their financial hardships.

Springfield, Missouri Tea Party Inspired By Rick Santelli: Vincent David Jericho Organizes Springfield's Protest
Purpose is to send a loud and clear, visible signal to President Obama, Congress, and other people around the country that the stimulus bill was not wanted by the American people, that people who play by the rules and work hard don't want to pay the tab for people whose businesses have failed or who bought houses they couldn't afford.
Contact email@example.com for more information.
I know where I will be during my lunch hour on Friday.
For tax year 2007, I wound owing both the feds and the state of Illinois money--lots of money. During the last quarter of 2007, I lost my job, so money was tight. Today, I called the state of Illinois today to check on my balance. The state of Illinois lost a couple of my payments. So I spent my morning calling the bank setting up faxes of the proof of payment. The Illinois Department of Revenue gave me attitude telling me my lost payment wasn't their problem. The problem is, when I called the Illinois Department of Revenue a month ago, they admitted to receiving the payments, and were still processing the very first payment I made four months prior. That payment processed, but they lost the second and third payments. Lucky me! What else should you expect from the state of Illinois?
Requesting Accountability from Ozark Junior High Teacher Leads to Teacher Insulting Me : Ozark, Missouri
The first issue that alerted me to a problem was the new Ozark Tiger Football Stadium at Ozark High School. The district built a new high school a couple of years ago and the new stadium opened in the fall. The school celebrated its opening with an open house, where they showed off the full-color video playback scoreboard, the field house, the artificial turf, stadium seating, and luxury press box. There are NCAA football teams which don't even come close to playing on field like this.
The school includes a professional weight room, sports medicine center, plasma TVs in the hallways, a color-video sign displaying announcements and student artwork at the east entrance, and many other unneeded luxuries needed for education.
A couple weeks later, the school sent elementary home with fundraisers to pay for testing computers their budget wouldn't allow. It hit me quickly how much more important athletics have become over academics. Ozark schools were sending kids out to sell so they could look better than Nixa, or whatever their reason was to build their stadium and overlook the needs of their students.
Such excesses will provide costly future property tax assessments. Having moved from Chicago, I understand how these luxuries hit homeowners hard when their annual assessments come due. It's not uncommon to pay $4,000 to $6,000 a year in property taxes on an average ranch style home in Chicagoland. I decided it was time to go to work and do my part in hopes of raising the awareness in the community, so we never have to look at the reality increased property tax assessments to those levels.
The second issue happened about a week ago when I discovered Ozark Junior High School was using Morgan Spurlock's anti-capitalism movie, Supersize Me, to teach why you shouldn't eat at McDonald's. The movie promotes suing the ‘evil corporations’ rather than taking responsibility for your actions. Supersize Me demonizes an American company who provides jobs, community service, and opportunities to earn wealth through franchising. The movie contains sexual dialog, a rectal exam, drug references, penis references, and a graphic medical procedure. When I asked a parent of a student if the school requested their approval before showing the file, they told me they weren't even aware the children were seeing it until after the fact. The movie is clearly a liberal attempt to hurt McDonalds, and teachers should be able to teach a healthy diet without needing Spurlock's political rhetoric.
Yesterday evening, an Ozark Junior High student asked me to help out with some English homework. My degree is in technical writing, so I gladly accepted to help out. As I looked over their work, I noticed their inability to use punctuation as simple as a period. It was a pattern throughout the eight pages of their writing. There were other mistakes that weren’t acceptable for a kid a few months away from a high school composition class. I didn't make a big deal of the mistakes. I explained the rules and edited the paper. This student is an all-A student, by the way, so based on their grades, I expect them to know how to use a period and a comma most of the time.
I asked to the see the assignment sheet. They handed it to me, and the sheet alarmed me with its poor grammar usage. This was an English assignment and the teacher showed little attention to those rules many of you hated growing up. It was hard to understand, there was punctuation missing from the end of sentences, and basic style rules were thrown out. This is where you ask yourself should I ignore this teacher who might rob this child of a good education like I was by some teachers, or do you stand up a demand excellence. I remember the teachers that didn’t take my education seriously without any affection, and for this kid, college is a few short years away. This was strike three in my book, and I am tired of watching where entitlement education has led this country over the last few years. The lack of critical thinking skills are killing this country. I decided to say something. I wrote an e-mail to the teacher and the principal. I wrote to express my concerns. I had no idea of the attitude I was about to receive.
Dear Ms. Houston,
I am helping one of your students with their homework, and I am disappointed with their lack of knowledge of grammar and basic punctuation. When I looked at the assignment, I quickly noticed your lack of attention of style rules in your own writing.
I seriously wasn't trying to insult her, but at the same time I felt she had a responsibility to her students to display what she supposedly teaches them. If you are not going to enforce the rules by displaying you too follow the rules, then the students begin to think the rules are not important. Not only that, but based on the writing of the student I read, the student is not an A student in English.
Here's the reply:
Dr. Mr. Bowler:
OJH English Department
Obviously, the insults from this teacher are unbelievable. Beyond that, she doesn't want to take the responsibility of her position to teach children English. She complains about it and the time it takes to perform her job. Then she tells me to get a day job, and continues to discuss the miseries of her job. If it's that bad, quit. Don't rob a child of a good education because you are not happy. If it's about the money, go to Arby's, or go to school board meetings and complain about the money spent on athletics at Ozark. Don't ever insult another adult who is concerned about a child’s education.
Lackadaisical teachers were something I dealt with in high school, and I tired of fighting them and accepted that they weren’t going to teach me what I needed. I shouldn't have, but when you are 15-18 years old, you don't believe your opinion matters. I'd go home and tell my mom the history teacher didn't know history. He just passed out word finds every day in his American History. He had a word find for all fifty states. That's how the year started, and it ended with word finds. I had to play catch up when I got to college.
You don't want your child playing catch up when they get to college, so you should demand excellence from your teachers. No one should ever have to put up with an insulting teacher who forgets parents pay property taxes that fund the school. I am worried about the direction of education in this country.
Change comes from each of us. It's about standing up when a San Francisco kindergarten teacher invites her students to her lesbian wedding and hands out gay tolerance cards. I know those days may be a long way away for Ozark students. If you don't stand up and demand your school system to teach what a child needs to succeed, it's not unrealistic that those philosophies may one day infiltrate in the school system. After all, who would have ever thought I would be insulted for demanding excellence from a teacher?
Missouri's House Passes Four Day School Week (HB242): Kids Get the Short End While Nixon Expands Welfare
Missouri's Republican controlled House approved the first round of debates that would allow school districts the option of four-day school weeks. Republican Representative Gayle Kingery, of Poplar Bluff, sponsored the bill citing the costs to the state's rural schools.
Did anyone look at challenging Jay Nixon's expansion of welfare that's promoting more Missourians to sit on their butts as funds they could reappropriate to children who have still have a future to do something with the talents they are given? Our priorities under Governor Nixon have become totally screwed up. Missouri's children will pay the another price as they are robbed of a day of education.
Obama Talks About a Trillion Dollars Like It's No Big Deal...: Guess Who They are Planning on Paying it Back
According to tax data, there are approximately 90 million Americans who pay income taxes. Not all Americans pay income taxes; although, they all pay taxes out of their paychecks. Many Americans pay in, but get bigger refunds thanks to tax credits at the end of the year. This is how wealth is redistributed in America.
Based on tax data, consider these facts about Obama and Pelosi’s stimulus plan, the bailouts, and the mortgage fix:
Without interest figured in, the cost to each of these tax payers will be $8,000. Governor Jay Nixon of Missouri says we can just pass this cost on to our children and grandchildren like it’s no big deal--the amazing enlightenment of the Democrats. Governor Nixon is the go to guy when it comes to giving!
When you add all the bank bailouts, auto bailouts, and Obama’s mortgage bailout, the average cost to taxpayers rises to $19,000. Are you children and grandchildren feeling the love yet, Governor Nixon?
When you add all of the above to the current national debt, the cost to taxpayers is over $60,000. Remember when Governor Nixon showed how much he cared about college kids during his first week in office? Yeah, he really cares.
