What is going on with the people who want control of their government?
Another tidbit sent my way … it is increasingly evident that people who put faith in #44 are beginning to see the real CHANGE their votes garnered.
And that’s just the first two weeks . . . but who’s counting.
America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges ~ Barrack, Nancy, and Harry ~ and they are still trying to define stimulus.
Stimulus is where the government gives a smidgen of your tax dollars back to you making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated] that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV and go home and watch Telemundo!

There has been a lot of flap about the citizenship of Barack Obama.
Is he or isn’t he … has the nation been scammed again or not?
Fact is we simply do not know.
What we do know is the MSM has miserably dropped the ball on this.
For those that I have talked with do not even have a clue there is a question.
A vast majority do not know the difference between a citizen and a “natural born citizen”.
Those that begin to understand are NOW concerned that Obama is not being forthcoming with his records.
A smaller fringe does not care if he is or is not simply because they love the guy no matter what.
Do I find this a problem?
You bet and you should find it a problem too.
Because for whatever reason we have a President Elect who thinks he is above following the law.
Well apparently main stream is beginning to wake up.
AOL has been running a poll.
The question is:
Do you think there is any merit to the controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s citizenship?
51% say yes
43% say no
6% do not know
The interesting thing is where and who thinks what.
IL, NY, VT, RI, CT, DE, MD and DC all think no.
If you want to join into the little poll? Here ya go.
My political awareness began in 1960 as a youngster sitting on my father’s lap watching Walter Cronkite report the news during the John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon campaigns. My father, while not an immigrant was JFK’s age, and like him was an Irish Catholic. There was an immediate connection between my family and the soon to be leader of the “New Frontier”.
Much in common?
Not so much in common?
My maternal family were all immigrants, having come through Ellis Island. They came here not for religious freedom nor for political freedom, but to the greatest country in the world to give their families a better life. Anything was possible in America. Land of the free, home of the brave. A government “of the people, by the people, and for the people”.
I wonder now; given the “state of the union” and the “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” what decision they would make in 2008. They loved being Americans and their naturalization was the source of great celebration. They voted religiously, getting someone to interpret for them when they didn’t understand an issue.
My grandmother’s last vote was in 1996, at 95 years old. She would have considered it a mortal sin not to vote in an election. My mother’s first vote was in 2008 at the age of 86. She who lived through the great depression, through the civil rights movement, (she was a civil rights activist in her stay at home mom sort of way), and had a son serve in the military during Vietnam was thrilled that she cast her first vote ever for the first African American to become President of the United States.
She describes it as the most important thing she could ever have voted for. He gave her hope for the renewal of the America her family had ventured across seas to be a part of. Her reasons for not voting prior to this election are to remain hers.
Politics were “table topics” in our home and often still are. During the early 1960’s talk was of the beginning of the Peace Corps, Man on the Moon, Civil Rights, Vietnam, Cuban Missile Crisis, and Charles de Gaulle. Today it is hope, change, despair and often followed by a longing for when it wasn’t as corrupt, as scandalous, and elected officials crimes aren’t the breaking news of the day).
During the 60’s I sat intent on soaking up all I could about American politics and how great America was. I hadn’t even started having history lessons in school yet and I was addicted. I questioned anyone who was willing to listen and began making up my own mind about what their opinions meant to me and to the world.
Smiling politely to all who answered my inquiring mind, I walked away with my own opinions. I was teased from the time I was very young that I would make a great politician because of the logic of my arguments. I could see the amazement from my parents and family members when I felt brave enough to voice those political beliefs and thoughts. I became a clinical thinker long before I knew the philosophical differences between a Republican and a Democrat.
While I have been clinically trained to keep passion and emotion away from my thinking in order to avoid becoming an idealogical conspiratorial thinker, I remain at this time, in this moment, a clinical thinker that screams at political corruption, partisan politics, partisan political spins that the “spinner” believes I will “blindly see” as the one, holy, apolostolic truth of their partisan political BS, while they continue to formulate their every press release to further their ideolgical position. Be it left or right, cut the crap, you sound ridiculous when you spin the truth to further partisan beliefs.
After years of being politically active in various local and state campaigns for a variety of candidates, of varied political idealogy, I walked away from that involvement. Until somewhat recently, I have simply kept a “mindseye” on the machine called government. I have ranted and raged about “spin”, corruption, partisanship, self serving elected officials, being considered unAmerican or antiAmerican because of my views on the war.
Called unpatriotic by those who consider my views of the past 8 years just that. I believe in the Constitution of the United States and its preservation. Its’ intent. Its’ integrity. I can now no longer “simply be” and share my rantings with other clinical thinkers. I must lend myself to making a difference through real political activism. To quote a famous movie line, “I’m mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore.” It is time for us to STAND & BE COUNTED, TAKE BACK GOVERNMENT, RENEW OUR HOPE, FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION, and see AMERICA’S GREATNESS RESTORED.
I believe that:
We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union…must RAISE OUR VOICES!
Another clinical thinker and I know from experience that when we do, we can fall buildings.
Please join the movement to make this country once again “we the people” and a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. Join the blog, or contact your elected officials and remind them that you are watching their every move carefully, that you are prepared to work to unseat them if they fail to serve the public trust as an elected official, that if they cast one self serving vote, accept one tainted dollar, sell one vote, or they act or believe that being a member of Congress exempts them from acting with honor and integrity because their fellow associates will allow this behavior, REMIND THEM THAT YOU WILL NOT.
We can thank Bill Clinton and his antics for this precedence.
I was a little surprised it is happening so soon … before he even is sworn in?
Here is a copy of the document people are signing.
The Impeachment of Senator Barack Obama
TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama is an admitted illegal drug user and
is believed to have used illegal drugs as recently as November 1999
or more recently. Mr. Obama has maintained contact with other
admitted illegal drug users.
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has maintained regular contact
with known criminals such as Antoin (Tony) Rezko and other
criminal elements in Chicago and Illinois. Mr. Obama has
conducted business with these criminals and received campaign
donations from them. Mr. Obama was compelled to return an estimated $250,000 in
donations related to Tony Rezko.
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has consistently lied about his
contact with convicted criminal Tony Rezko. The Tony Rezko
corruption trial revealed that FBI mole John Thomas helped investigators
“build a record of repeat visits to the old offices of Rezko and former
business partner Daniel Mahru’s Rezmar Corp., at 853 N. Elston, by
Blagojevich and Obama during 2004 and 2005,” according to the February
10, 2008 Chicago Sun-Times.
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in unscrupulous business
practices, in particular with Mr. Robert Blackwell. Mr. Obama
received an $ 8,000 per month “legal retainer” from Mr. Blackwell
for a total of $112,000 and reported the income through his law firm
in a manner not unlike money laundering. Obama, along with Obama
campaign manager Dan Shomon, procured $ 320,000 in state grants
for Blackwell’s company Killerspin. Blackwell companies contributed
over $ 32,000 to the Obama campaign in 2007.
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama used the office of IL Senator to
facilitate the vote rigging in Chicago as chairman of the Illinois Senate
Health and Human Services Committee. Mr. Obama pushed legislation in Senate Bill
1332 to reduce the number of members of the Health Facilities Planning Board
from 15 to 9. Mr. Obama did conspire with Stuart Levine, Tony Rezko and
Rod Blogojevich to rig the committee and was rewarded with campaign
contributions. The new members appointed included 3 doctors who contributed to
Mr. Obama. On April 21, 2004, Stuart Levine explicitly advised Dr. Robert Weinstein,
who is now indicted, of Tony Rezko’s role in manipulating the Planning Board’s vote.
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has engaged in lies and deception
about his past. Mr. Obama lied about his contact level with
convicted criminal Tony Rezko, the amounts and sources of
campaign contributions and encounters with the law. A complaint
has been filed with the Bar Association of Illinois alleging
that Mr. Obama did not answer truthfully all questions on the
application to the bar.
Whereas: Senator Barack Obama has invoked the FOIA in Illinois
when it was politically expedient and ignored or violated the
FOIA at other times. In the Illinois Senate proceedings of
Mr. Obama, in Senate Bill 1416, pleads the importance of businesses
bidding on state contracts having improved access to FOIA data. When
later questioned about his records during his term in the IL
Senate, Mr. Obama gave evasive answers or refused to supply records.
Whereas: The First Amendment provides a right for the people “to
petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Precedents
exist for impeachment and expulsion of a US Senator. Senator William
Blount was impeached by the House on July 7, 1797 and expelled by
the Senate the next day.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that we, the People, Undersigned,
being citizens of the United States and residents in the Cities and States so
indicated, HEREBY Demand that the Congress of the United States begin
immediate impeachment and/or expulsion proceedings against Senator
Addendum: Petition to Impeach Senator Obama
We were urged to add the following information about Senator Obama.
This comes under the topic of lies and deception but also falls under more
serious charges of abuse of power and possible violation of the Logan Act.
Those signing the petition prior to this addendum will be identified.
August 4, 2008
Whereas: As a US Senator, Barack Obama violated the stated intention of
his 2006 Official Government Visa to Africa by publicly propagandizing
for his cousin, Railla Odinga against the US democratic ally of Kenya.
Whereas the stated “mission” of Senator Obama’s Official Visa, according
to the Kenya Office of Public Communications, was to “nurture relations
between the Continent and the United States” he, instead, made public
protest before Kenya citizens to rally against their leadership,
invoking a need for “Change!” and accusing this US allied nation of
“corruption.” In Official Protest of Mr. Obama’s passport abuse and
misconduct, Kenya’s government cited his “extremely disturbing
statements on issues which it is clear, he was very poorly informed, and
on which he chose to lecture the Government and the people of Kenya on
how to manage our country.” Whereas, furthermore, there is no public
record of any sanctions or reprimand by the US Congress of Senator
Obama’s passport violation or campaigning on foreign soil against a US
ally, history has since recorded the broadspread destruction of Kenya’s
economy and large scale loss of life as a result of the violence
instigated by Odinga’s ODM campaign there.
