What a day this has been; servers crashing, hosts scurrying to repair said hardware and software, while I have been taking care of numerous logistical problems here at my end of the world in readiness for a history making trip.
In just about 21 hours I will be wheels up and on my way to DC thanks to the donations of you, my loyal readers, and friends and business owners loaning equipment to the monster.
This post is to send you many mahalos for your support through the last year, your continued loyalty through all the site problems, and to let you know that I know you will be standing with us when we make our March on the Capitol. I look forward to keeping all of you in the know! Details, details, details!!!!
I will try to post on my layovers between flights.
Ted Kennedy is receiving the “Congressional Let Them Eat Cake” Award today for trying to have his cake and eat it too. Ted is also receiving this award because he seems to have adopted that aristocratic attitude which says, “I can do anything I want, whenever I want, to whomever I want.”
In a stunning admission of his frailty, an ailing U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy is asking the governor and legislative leaders to rewrite state law to allow for a temporary gubernatorial appointment to his seat.
In the letter, Kennedy asks that legislation be passed to change a law adopted in 2004 to provide for a special election to choose a new U.S. Senator in the event of a vacancy.
The law was pushed through during the 2004 presidential election because state lawmakers wanted to prevent then-Gov. Mitt Romney from appointing a successor for U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry, who was the Democratic presidential nominee.
Kennedy pushed for that law and he understands how much havoc his open seat would play with Bambi’s Borg moment on healthcare, and how a special election might not swing to the Dems considering how upset “the angry mob” actually is right now.
Here is one more little tidbit to think about in relation to previous articles on the borg absorption of our banks, car companies, and now healthcare; the infamous pie charts. Remember, government is a consumer, not a producer.
7 decades ago, when many of today’s senior citizens were children, just 12% of the economic pie was dependent upon GOVERNMENT (the red slice of the pie).
Restated, 12% of national income was consumed by government spending back then.
This left 88% of the pie to the productive PRIVATE sector (blue pie slice).
At that time the private sector was 7.3 times larger than the government share.
America WAS 88% FREE and 12% socialistic.
PICTURE #2 – post World War II
NOW, watch the non-productive government share in the left chart double to 22% of the economy, from the prior 12% share. (the red slice got bigger),
and note the remaining portion left to the productive private sector has been squeezed out of 10 points, compared to the previous chart.
That 10 point swing was mostly attributed to government getting into the ‘socialized spending business’, starting with the ‘New Deal’
– – basically going into the social business, an area never envisioned by our founding forefathers as a reason for forming a federal government..
At this point, the private sector was about 4 times larger than government – – well below its prior 7 times larger ratio of the first chart.
America was 78% FREE and 22% socialistic. (instead of 88% free and 12% socialistic in the first chart).
NOW, look at the left chart for today.
the government sector (red color) doubled its share again –
from 22% of the economic pie in 1947 to 45% of the economy today,
shrinking the private sector share (blue color) of the economy an extra 21 points – – caused by even more expanded socialistic spending (not intended by our nation’s founders), at rates many times faster than growth of the general economy.
Now the productive private sector (having lost 28 points) is not much bigger than the government-controlled share of the economy;
a long fall from its prior position of being from 5 to 7.3 times larger than government.
American has become 45% socialistic, leaving only 55% FREE, a tremendous move from the first chart of 12% socialistic and 88% free.
That last pie chart is from 2008. I would be willing to bet that the ratio is well reversed from 45/55 – and Barack wants to add 1/7th of our economy in the form of healthcare dollars to that chart.
I suggest you send these pie charts far and wide so that the Not-So-Silent-Anymore Majority fully understands what is at stake.
Are we going to allow the american idol-in-chief and the traitors in the House and Senate to permanently flip this country from capitalism to socialism?
Glenn Beck has just announced that he will be in New York anchoring the coverage of the 9.12.09 protests and I just finalized my flights(Today’s AYFKM? Award)to Capitol Hill for theMother Of All Tea Parties!!
I want to thank all my readers and the new participants that have lurked and sent our research far and wide for your continued support, both emotional and monetary, for this trip.
The Monster is now only $490 away from the goal of sending this citizen journalist to DC where I will be joining The Dame, DrKate and THOUSANDS for this Constitutional Restoration Protest!! We will be broadcasting live and I will be taking video of the days preceding the march, and the march itself.
Please help me gather the last few dollars to I don’t get collected and tossed in the tank for sleeping in the park! (Hit the donate button on the upper-right)
For those of you that are now waking up and are hell-bent for leather to get to Washington and add your voice to this Constitutional restoration of our republic, here are the links to the information you need about hotels, buses, meetings with representatives, etc.:
Ladies and Gentlemen; it is time to pick a side and march on Washington D.C. on 9.12.09 to let this government know THAT YOU KNOW and YOU ARE NOT GOING TO ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE THEIR WAYS! If you have not figured out that our government has gone around the bend and is hell bent on destroying the middle-class and small businesses AND steering our country toward poverty and global government, then you must take the time to read the posts on this site and numerous other sites and educate yourself on the oligarchy of american aristocratic families, banks, politicians, and think tanks.
Here are the two umbrella organizations that are Marching on DC on 9.12.09 with numerous network groups. I have joined Constitutional Emergency and urge you to join one of these groups if you feel that you can attend in September.
Now for the message from The Monster. As many of you know, I am a home schooling mom who now is working reduced hours that also believes in personal responsibility and running my household in the black, (unlike our Congress). I have been wrestling with attending the march on 9.12 due to my own moral code about fiscal responsibility and self sufficiency. I have asked friends for their thoughts and advice and have been informed that every single American Patriot that can attend; should. Therefore, I am putting aside my cowboy hat wearing, lone tiger stance and requesting your assistance in gathering the funds to make this trip. I have the added hindrance of 2400 miles of ocean to add to the type of travel that I am able to use, and am required to purchase a plane ticket. My goal is $1500 for airfare and a shared hotel room. If you can contribute, it will be greatly appreciated and if I do not reach the goal, all funds will be returned to their patrons.
