Isaiah 50: 4 – 9a

On this palm Sunday, the reading from Isaiah spoke to me as the words of passion to strengthen our resolve against the Progressives, the Main Stream Media and the Left. May the LORD be with us as we fight those that would remove our freedoms and steal the fruits of our labor:

4 The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.

5 The Sovereign LORD has opened my ears, and I have not been rebellious; I have not drawn back.

6 I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting.

7 Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.

8 He who vindicates me is near. Who then will bring charges against me? Let us face each other! Who is my accuser? Let him confront me!

9 It is the Sovereign LORD who helps me. Who is he that will condemn me? They will all wear out like a garment; the moths will eat them up.

A Letter To Attorney General Chris Koster

Greetings Mr. Koster,

I’m writing to you today to ask you to defend my children, my family, me and all Missourians against the destruction of my rights and freedoms by the Federal Government. As you know the Congress finalized the vote on Sunday to make me illegal just for being alive… …unless I submit to their health care requirements.

If this is not in violation of the U.S. Constitution, the document that created the Federal Government from the States, then I don’t know what is. Will it be when they force me to buy a certain car? Will it be when they force me to buy certain food? Will it be when they force me to buy a certain light bulbs?

It is a slippery slope that we are on if we do not stop this usurpation of our freedoms.

I ask you along with full force of the State of Missouri to fight this encroachment on freedom through law suit, legislation, and resolution.

Thank you,
Brian Bollmann
Jackson, Missouri

Republicans Fund Abortions

The next game to be played by the Progressives in the Federal Government and the Main Stream Media will be to make the claim that Republicans WANT to fund abortions. I can see it now.

As the Republicans continue to fight the socialization of America and the Progressive / Union / Liberal takeover of the Health Care system, they will fight to stop the Reconciliation Bill in the Senate with every parliamentary tactic at their disposal. Amendments will be proposed, debate rules will be fought, and stalling tactics will be employed. Republicans and Conservatives will fight tooth and nail.

At some point, a sleazy bureaucrat, Senator or Congressman will posit that the Republicans ‘know’ that the Senate bill is the law of the land. And, by fighting against the Reconciliation and Sidecar Bills, they are fighting to keep the status quo which includes… …the funding of abortions. “The Republicans are fighting to keep abortion funding in place”

Bureaucrats will copy it, and Senators and Congressmen will pass it along. The MSM will pick it up and report it as gospel.

Conservatives and Republicans need to be ready for this next ploy of the Progressives and Democrats… …guaranteed… …like death and taxes.

Abortion and Health Care

Below is my response to a liberal friend that wanted to fuss about Abortion and Health Care today. The basic point of the e-mail I received was:

  • I have no right to have an opinion on abortion unless I have a vagina
  • Rich people shouldn’t be the only ones getting heart transplants
  • Health Insurance premiums are too high

My Reply…

I have every right to have an opinion about ANYTHING — including abortion. And, if your really feel that I have no right to an opinion on abortion, then I don’t know how we’re going to be able to have further reasonable discussions.

It amazes me that liberals will fight to the death over a tree, a whale, and bait fish. They consider a single-celled amoeba to be ‘life’ — but when it comes to a baby, 1.3 pounds of human flesh is expendable. BTW, my girlfriend’s now 18yo daughter was born at 22.5 weeks and 1.3 pounds. And, that kid has been fighting for her life since she was a couple hundred cells. Guess she and 40,000,000 like her have no rights, eh?

If it’s not a human baby in there, then what the hell is it?!?!?

This whole circus is not about Health Care or Abortion. It is not about anything more than Democrat and Progressive control over our country and the increase of Washington’s power over you and me. We don’t need 16500 new IRS employees to enforce a good law – period. We don’t have to lie about the totality of legislation and hide 1/3 of the cost in a sidecar bill if it’s good law – period. And that is 1 of the thousands of nefarious things inside this bill.

And our country ALREADY has the best survival rate for heart disease and most cancers, so we don’t need this bill for those maladies. And if you want TRUE health care reform, then why are we doing all the things that are already failing times a million.

This is nothing more than typical liberal tax and spend policies and those policies haven’t worked on the war on poverty, the war on drugs, the USPS… …and are failing on Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

So much for real change.

Has anyone yet explained how we’re going to add 30,000,000 people to the health insurance and have doctors (who are and will leave the profession in droves) to care for them. The medical loss ratio issues are completely ignored and going to add 100s of billions to the cost. And, why isn’t anyone screaming about Obama’s lie on taxing the middle class. He’s done nothing but tax the middle class since he came into office. These bills double-down on taxing the middle class.

I’ve already listed 5-10 things for you that would be TRUE health care reform — most of which are free. True competition and TRUE free market are the only way to improve the system. We have not had true free markets over the past 30 years; that is the problem.

Your premiums are going to skyrocket. Have fun with that. Thought 39% was bad?!?! Wait till they go up compliments of government bureaucrats and enjoy all the new taxes to go with it.

And if this is so freaking wonderful, why are they hiding a takeover of the ENTIRE student loan industry inside this bill?!?!? …without which the CBO would be scoring the HR3590 as only reducing the debt by about $50B over the decade? Heard any of the MSNBC pundits talking about that lie?!?! Hmm?!?! Forget about reconciliation (HR4872) and the sidecar doctor fix (HR3961) that net the whole thing to an additional $59B in deficits over the decade. Lie. Lie. Lie.

What else is our freedom loving Obama going to nationalize (with the help he had from Bush)? He’s got the auto industries, the banks, the student loan industries, and now the health care system. The government now owns like 60% of the economy. What else is left?

That’s (the start of) my rant. (I could go on and on)

The damn thing had me up and unable to sleep last night. I just can’t believe that it affected me that much.

I’m Heterosexual And I’m Going To The Prom

I went to my first prom in 1980.  I did not find it necessary to announce that I am heterosexual.  If gay, I doubt that I would have announced such in a school that forbade gay prom dating… …unless I wanted to cause a flap.

Lesbian Teen Sues To Force School To Hold Prom

So, the school canceled the prom instead of changing the rule to allow gay couples to attend.  And, we’re suing for an affirmative injunction to force the school to hold the prom — a standing that will be hard to prove.

Thoughts:

It’s interesting to me that, at her age, she can make the choice to be Lesbian, which is an astounding decision for her age.  She’s not mature enough to drink, vote, join the armed forces, be a state representative, can not make the choice to have sex with a 25 year old or 52 year old, but she can determine her sexual preference.

Another thought is… …what if one of the boy’s had a nice white sheep for a girlfriend; would that be his ‘free expression’ and okay w/ the ACLU et al?  If not, then where do you draw the line?  Multiple partners?  I’m certainly not equating homosexuality with bestiality, but it is a ‘slippery-slope’ argument.  If we allow inter-racial and homosexual couples, why do we draw the line there?  Shouldn’t we allow multiple partners (ala former Mormon rules), tree lovers, a girl and her tricycle?

This is a perfect example of why the federal government should not be involved with school in any way.  States must be the highest level of control and more choice needs to be available to handle such situations.  Vouchers would allow people to go to private school.  She could choose a school that welcomes homosexuals and others could choose differently.

You know — Freedom.

But government is not and never has been about freedom.

Cynical On Balance

I have a friend who happens to be a bureaucrat.  He works in the political realm on the Republican side, and we generally get a few minutes to talk about politics and the status of Congressional races once per week.  I do believe he’s more of an ‘R’ than I am, and he definitely knows much more about the legislative process than me.

So, it was with great dismay that I heard him say, “There’s no way they’d pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.”  I was immediately angry.  My naïve idealistic conservative brain was met with the inside harsh reality that is the sausage grinder of the U.S Congress.  You could feel that he just ‘knows’ the place is owned by the special interests, and the parasites will never let the host body of deficit spending die.

There it is.  A good man on the inside can say with certainty that the people who would tell you and me to live within our means, will never live within the means entrusted to them.  The men and women we hired to be good stewards of our money, simply, never will.

Even more disappointing is the fact that the statement comes from a mid-level bureaucrat – one of a hundred thousand disillusioned, cynical bureaucrats that are supposedly working for the greater good.  These are the people who make up the middle class of the Federal Government – the ones who, like the general American middle class, have the real power.  These are the ones who really get everything done.

Conservatives and anyone with a lick of sense know that the budget must be balanced immediately.  There is no more time to wait – the very heartbeat of our country is in the crosshairs.  Well, what to do.

Here’s a list of things to do to solve this problem:

1.    Vote out all incumbents

And with them will go many of those bureaucrats who have stopped working for the people and are ‘just working for the machine’.  The people who have given up on the government will be replaced with new wild-eyed and energetic patriots from outside the beltway.  A new dawn will rise over our Capitol, and real change may spring forth.

Pipe dream.  Option 1 will never happen.  The D’s and R’s have a stranglehold on our government and on our debt.  No change. No hope as long as the status quo remains in effect.

Maybe this is the clarion call for a 3rd party.  I am not a proponent of the 3rd party, but, if the Tea Party Patriots, Republicans, and Democrats each make up 1/3 of the electorate, then there is a great chance that Tea Party Patriots could win elections and get the spending under control.  We’ve watched as both the Democrats and Republicans have spent us into certain oblivion; why do we think they will stop the spending when they haven’t reduced the national debt since 1968.  Are we wasting our time hoping the Republican Party can be brought under control?  Maybe we are.

In his cynicism, my friend may have given Conservatives their most powerful reason for splitting from the Republican Party.  In his candor, did we receive our marching orders?  In his frustration, possibly, he lit a fire.
