I've been out of town the last couple of weeks and have been unable to post. I've spent a week in Atlanta, then on to Virginia. I'm very excited about the Governor's race. Since BO's inauguration, my optimism is returning. Not to mention the Congressional race in New York...

The Tea Party Movement is making a difference. The country club Republicans better get the hell out of the way. Who are the leaders of the movement....individual patriots all over the country.....WE, THE PEOPLE. Who is echoing their powerful voices....Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh...

If the Conservative candidate in the New York congressional race beats both the liberal Democrat and Liberal Republican, Game ON. With the election a few days away, the latest polling, ala, shows Hoffman gaining ground. Scozzafava led in late September, with 35% to 28% for Owens and 16% for Hoffman. As Hoffman took support away from Scozzafava, Owens took the lead over her by four to five points in mid-October. Now, with star endorsements from Palin et al, one poll has Hoffman leading with 31%, Owens at 27% and Scozzafava at 20%.

Boy Scout Suspended for Bringing Mess Kit to School


Published: October 11, 2009

NEWARK, Del. — Finding character witnesses when you are 6 years old is noteasy. But there was Zachary Christie last week at a school disciplinarycommittee hearing with his karate instructor and his mother’s fiancĂ© by hisside to vouch for him.Zachary’s offense? Taking a camping utensil that can serve as a knife, forkand spoon to school. He was so excited about recently joining the Cub Scoutsthat he wanted to use it at lunch. School officials concluded that he hadviolated their zero-tolerance policy on weapons, and Zachary now faces 45days in the district’s reform school.“It just seems unfair,” Zachary said, pausing as he practiced writing lower-case letters with his mother, who is home-schooling him while thefamily tries to overturn his punishment.

Spurred in part by the Columbine and Virginia Tech shootings, many school districts around the country adopted zero-tolerance policies on thepossession of weapons on school grounds. More recently, there has been growing debate over whether the policies have gone too far. But, based on the code of conduct for the Christina School District, where Zachary is a first grader, school officials had no choice. They had tosuspend him because, “regardless of possessor’s intent,” knives are banned. But the question on the minds of residents here is: Why do school officials not have more discretion in such cases? “Zachary wears a suit and tie some days to school by his own choice becausehe takes school so seriously,” said Debbie Christie, Zachary’s mother, who started a Web site,, in hopes of recruiting supporters topressure the local school board at its next open meeting on Tuesday. “He is not some sort of threat to his classmates.”Still, some school administrators argue that it is difficult to distinguish innocent pranks and mistakes from more serious threats, and that the policies must be strict to protect students.“There is no parent who wants to get a phone call where they hear that their child no longer has two good seeing eyes because there was a scuffle and someone pulled out a knife,” said George Evans, the president of the Christina district’s school board. He defended the decision, but added that the board might adjust the rules when it comes to younger children like Zachary.

Critics contend that zero-tolerance policies like those in the Christina district have led to sharp increases in suspensions and expulsions, oftenputting children on the streets or in other places where their behavior onlyworsens, and that the policies undermine the ability of school officials touse common sense in handling minor infractions.For Delaware, Zachary’s case is especially frustrating because last yearstate lawmakers tried to make disciplinary rules more flexible by giving local boards authority to, “on a case-by-case basis, modify the terms of the expulsion.” The law was introduced after a third-grade girl was expelled for a year because her grandmother had sent a birthday cake to school, along with a knife to cut it. The teacher called the principal — but not before using the knife to cut and serve the cake. In Zachary’s case, the state’s new law did not help because it mentions only expulsion and does not explicitly address suspensions. A revised law is being drafted to include suspensions.“We didn’t want our son becoming the poster child for this,” Ms. Christie said, “but this is out of control.” In a letter to the district’s disciplinary committee, State RepresentativeTeresa L. Schooley, Democrat of Newark, wrote, “I am asking each of you to consider the situation, get all the facts, find out about Zach and his family and then act with common sense for the well-being of this child.”

Education experts say that zero-tolerance policies initially allowed authorities more leeway in punishing students, but were applied in adiscriminatory fashion. Many studies indicate that African-Americans were several times more likely to be suspended or expelled than other students for the same offenses. “The result of those studies is that more school districts have removed discretion in applying the disciplinary policies to avoid criticism of being biased,” said Ronnie Casella, an associate professor of education at Central Connecticut State University who has written about school violence. He added that there is no evidence that zero-tolerance policies make schools safer. Other school districts are also trying to address problems they say have stemmed in part from overly strict zero-tolerance policies. In Baltimore, around 10,000 students, about 12 percent of the city’senrollment, were suspended during the 2006-7 school year, mostly for disruption and insubordination, according to a report by the Open SocietyInstitute-Baltimore. School officials there are rewriting the disciplinarycode, to route students to counseling rather than suspension. In Milwaukee, where school officials reported that 40 percent of ninth graders had been suspended at least once in the 2006-7 school year, the superintendent has encouraged teachers not to overreact to student misconduct. “Something has to change,” said Dodi Herbert, whose 13-year old son, Kyle,was suspended in May and ordered to attend the Christina district’s reform school for 45 days after another student dropped a pocket knife in his lap.

School officials declined to comment on the case for reasons of privacy. Ms. Herbert, who said her son was a straight-A student, has since beenhome-schooling him instead of sending him to the reform school.The Christina school district attracted similar controversy in 2007 when itexpelled a seventh-grade girl who had used a utility knife to cut windows out of a paper house for a class project.Charles P. Ewing, a professor of law and psychology at the University atBuffalo Law School who has written about school safety issues, said hefavored a strict zero-tolerance approach. “There are still serious threats every day in schools,” Dr. Ewing said,adding that giving school officials discretion holds the potential for discrimination and requires the kind of threat assessments that only law enforcement is equipped to make. In the 2005-6 school year, 86 percent of public schools reported at leastone violent crime, theft or other crime, according to the most recent federal survey. And yet, federal studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and another by the Department of Justice show that the rate ofschool-related homicides and nonfatal violence has fallen over most of thepast decade. Educational experts say the decline is less a result of zero-tolerance policies than of other programs like peer mediation, student support groupsand adult mentorships, as well as an overall decrease in all forms of crime.For Zachary, it is not school violence that has left him reluctant to return to classes. “I just think the other kids may tease me for being in trouble,” he said,pausing before adding, “but I think the rules are what is wrong, not me.”

This is the insanity lawyers cause. We need lawsuit reform, not only in matters such as this, but health care reform. It has to much harder to sue, otherwise this kind of insanity will continue. 1000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean is not even close to a good start.

Send a Pink Slip to Everyone in Congress.

A new insidious hate crime bill is making its way through Congress attached to a defense spending bill. Watch out, as this will chill free speech forever. This type of law was used in Canada and other countries to prevent Christian minister's from objecting to homosexual lifestyles. To speak out against homosexuality can be interpreted as a hate crime in Canada, Sweden, and other places where this attack to free and open debate flourishes. Next, the environmentalist wackos will make it an environmental hate crime to criticise their junk science. If you want to do something, send Congress, all members, a pink slip.
This pink slip registers your opposition to not only hate crimes pedophilia protection act, but to cap and tax, and Government run health care. It would cost nearly 300 bucks to mail correspondence to every member of Congress, but you can do it for less than 30 dollars. Go here to send a pink slip to the ENTIRE Congress. Get moving, get off the couch, get in the fight!!!!

Last Days of Good Music

Maybe this is more fun than good. If you're deeply depressed about the Socialist takeover of our Government, perhaps this happy little tune will help you recall better times. Then get up and resume the fight. Every bullet counts.

The Death of the WE Car and Zombie Motors

Wall Street Journal's former Detroit reporter Paul Ingrassia, reports on the failed marriage between the UAW and GM management:

"Saturn's chief UAW apostle was Donald Ephlin, the visionary head of the union's GM department who passed away in 2000. Ephlin strongly believed that Detroit's auto makers and the UAW had to change from confrontation to collaboration.

Thus the Saturn contract, built on the Memorandum of Understanding, eliminated most of the work rules that strictly limit the tasks UAW members can perform. Workers would be called "technicians" and get just 80% of standard UAW wages but would share in Saturn's profits, allowing them to earn more if Saturn succeeded. Most Saturn executives and managers would be assigned a UAW counterpart, and the two would share in key decisions.

The latter provision was overly idealistic, but certainly an improvement over constant and costly combat. Nonetheless, Saturn's labor innovations were attacked by UAW traditionalists, who coined the term "Ephlinism" to describe Saturn's heresies. Ephlin retired, on the defensive, in 1989. Mr. Smith retired a year later, his reputation besmirched by GM's chronic underperformance, just before Saturn built its first cars".

Okay...the Saturn...the WE car (womens entertainment) car concept...with "no hassle" negotiation. Sweet, kind, and plastic. If any male wanted to chop at least an inch off his manhood, driving a WE car was the road to that end. No one can resurrect this stinking corpse, and GM is a zombie eatting off the living tissue of the American taxpayer. In fact, Detroit is the "Land of the Zombies". The economy didn't destroy the auto industry, the UAW and bad management did.

Healthcare....Funny Smackdown of Ad

AARP is trying to kill its current members with its support of Obamacare. Unfortunately, many unhappy AARP members bought 3 year memberships, or even life memberships to this leftwing organization and can't easily leave. The AARP is much like ACORN, SEIU, UAW, Rainbow Coalition, who are hiding their political affiliations using tax free money. This video does a very good job, using edgy humor, to discredit much of what was put forward by The Will Ferrel ad was nothing more than cheer leading for the DNC health care bill while demonizing insurance companies. No one argues that health care reform is needed, but a Government takeover will not fix the problem. The GOP has a plan, and it makes sense. Why they didn't address it years ago is a fair question. However, what is important is what is the best thing to do now. In this case, a free market solution is what is needed. Here are some of my ideas:

1. Make it illegal to discriminate for pre-existing conditions. I know, this isn't so 'free market'. However, nothing makes it so difficult or impossible to change jobs or do something more useful in the ecomony than loosing health insurance after a diagnosis. Many patients, who have chronic conditiona that are easily and economically treated, or cancer survivors doing well cannot get insurance on the private market. In many cases, these people are healthier than the undiagnosed population at large because of their new found interests in diet, exercise, and following medical prescriptions. Discriminating against them and favoring undiagnosed walking time bombs doesn't seem right to me. Everyone is one diagnosis away from not being able to buy insurance, so we need to consider whether to continue to exclude these folks to be in the long term interest of our economy.

2. Allow you to shop outside your State for insurance. Nothing lowers costs better than competition. Instead of 10 or less insurance companies to chose from, you have hundreds. You ask yourself why don't States want you to do this? Its really very simple. In primarily BLUE States, the liberal legislatures and insurance regulators require their insurance companies to cover everything from Abortion to Viagra. If you just want hospitalization insurance with a drug prescription component, you can't by it. Some States require insurance policies to cover mental if you live in those States, your FORCED to subsidize these things whether you want to or not. Your subsidization of those unwanted services makes your insurance premiums sky high. Once again, blame the liberals. Why should your family subsidize Viagra prescriptions because of some geezer's woody problem? I'm just sayin. Sorry geezers, but most of you can afford to buy this stuff out of of pocket or you can buy more expensive insurance to cover it. Don't make the rest of us subsidize it. Folks, out of State shopping will allow you to go around your liberal State legislature and regulators to find a policy that's right for you, and one you can afford. I think, along these lines, we should go to a cash basis for routine care, and have insurance for surgeries, hospitalization, and catastrophic care. When I was growing up, you paid the Doctor directly for checkups, and had insurance for more serious problems. It was a better deal than including routine care inside an insurance premium. If your paying 500-1000 per month for individual/family coverage that includes routine care, what about instead paying 250-500 per month, and a 50-70 dollars cash fee for a Doctor's visit. You'll find its really a better bargain, especially if go one, two, or three times a year.

3. Allow citizens to purchase drugs from other countries. I've heard the safety issue used to thwart this...but do we believe in free enterprise or not? The individual must assume some responsibility if they buy prescription drugs that are not effective. Individual responsibility to evaluate the quality and risks....such a novel, American idea. The nanny State would of course reject this idea, but we must restore competition in the drug market. Many Americans already cross borders to buy meds at reduced cost, and this should be allowed for mail customers as well who do not live in border regions. Let free enterprise reign!!!

4. Reduce costly and endless testing for new drugs. If people wish to take experimental drugs, explain the risks and let them decide. Lets not front load the costs with unbelievably expensive studies that take years/decades to that when the imperial FDA decides its suitable for one can afford it. Come on, no more 300 dollar pills. That insanity must stop. Allow people to decide whats best for them given the truth about the risks of all experimental drugs. Let responsible adults decide for themselves!!!

5. Allow people to deduct the cost of insurance premiums from their income tax. How simple is that? If corporations can do this, why can't individuals? Current law makes no sense.

6. Allow health savings accounts that roll over. Why should you loose money, as it is now, if you don't spend the full amount in a given year? That's ridiculous.

7. Law suit reform (Tort Reform). Lawyers are adding billions in cost to our health care system. We need to hold doctors and hospitals responsible for mistakes, but what is going on now is ludicrous. Yes, people who suffer need to have their medical needs taken care of, and any income losses replaced if they can't work or are disabled. No more jackpot justice. The former Presidential candidate John Edwards made million upon millions of dollars chasing ambulances. Who paid for John Edwards 28,000 square foot mansion and 400 dollar haircuts.....we did. His legal wins were passed on to millions of insurance rate payers in higher premiums. That has to stop. Reasonable compensation yes, jackpot justice....hell no. PS, we also have to do a better job of getting bad doctors out of practice using a National database that will flag and prevent incompetents from crossing State lines after loosing their license.

All of these things will lower insurance cost, and create the free market we need...that doesn't exist today.
