ROLL CALL! Amusing Bunni needs us RIGHT NOW!

Posted on November 13, 2012 by Zilla • 0 Comments

Amusing Bunni is a dear friend, a blogger, and the maker of the most adorable kitty videos ever. She used do a lot of Conservative blogging (from Chicago!) but a while back the death threats she received (from sickos who didn’t even TRY to hide their IP addresses!) got to be too much so she backed off from the politics and just did adorable videos mostly, while coming to other Conservative blogs and making them better for her having stopped by there in our comments sections. I knew something was going on with her when I saw this:

Sometimes, you get news in life that is so awful, so horrible, and
the worst is when you can do NOTHING about it to change it…..  continue reading at MareZilla.com

Conservative, Liberal, both?

It’s early here and insomnia is no fun! My husband is still fast asleep and my dog has doggie dreams of sitting around a table with all the other dogs in the neighborhood, smoking cigars and playing poker.

It’s too early to catch “Morning Joe.”the one liberal television show that I watch with any regularity.  I do watch him to hear the liberal party line  and I also read a few liberal columnists to get the liberal perspective.

But the same question always haunts me. Why do liberal shows have ONLY liberal guests to address issues of the day, while conservative shows feature both conservative and liberal analysts to address those very same issues? It seems that liberal shows spend so much time trashing conservative positions, candidates, legislative bills or a plethora of conservative issues.

Oh, wait a minute,  I forgot that Conservatives have not offered a darn thing (sic), not one bill or piece of legislation; they’re the party of  ‘no.’ Somehow I’m reminded of the Ryan plan to balance the budget and the nearly 900 days to pass a budget the liberals have had and we only see Continuing Resolutions and countless other resolutions.

I see this unbalanced liberal reporting on whatever liberal show I may watch. Then I go to my conservative ‘haunts’ to comparison shop. On Brett Baier’s ’roundtable’ are conservatives and liberal voices; including the excellent Juan Williams as one of the more rational liberal voices.

So, I watch  liberal television in the early hours, then the television gets turned off and I write and write. Then I watch Dylan Ratigan for more liberal perspective. He offers solutions to the massive problems we face that are devoid of liberal spin. Bipartisan solutions.

Mind you, that is NOT to say that I’m liberal. Au contraire, I’m conservative and quite proud of it! However, I feel that my world view is best shaped when I know both liberal and conservative perspectives and then I can make up my own mind.

Then I stroll on over to my conservative channels to finish out the evening. I like BrettBaier’s roundtable with the analysis of Charles Krauthammer, Juan Williams and Brit Hume; hardly analytical lightweights. Now it’s time to watch a movie!

Edmund Burke

On OCTOBER 11, 1798, President John Adams wrote to the 1st Brigade of the 3rd Division of the Militia of Massachusetts: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net.” Adams continued: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” British Statesman Edmund Burke told the National Assembly, 1791: “What is liberty without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils…madness without restraint. Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites.” Edmund Burke continued: “Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without.” U.S. Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop stated on May 28, 1849: “Men, in a word, must be controlled either by a power within them, or a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.”


Welcome to the Obama Years (via Herman Cain For President 2012)

Level-headed American,
Rhetoric and propaganda. Games and mockery. Welcome to the Obama years.
According to an email sent out tonight, our President and his supporters are mocking those trying to come up with solutions for this country, by asking people to tune in to tonight’s conservative debate for a good laugh – turn it into a game even. Instead of encouraging people to be mindful with the money they have in this volatile economy, President Obama’speople ask you to donate $5 to his campaign every time a political buzzword is used.Not only is this arrogant, but to be honest, it’s reminiscent of the same old hard-headed bullying of beltway politicians. It is a move pulled to degrade the ideas of candidates before hearing them, and to trick money and future votes out of a society that should be concerned about saving their money, not putting it toward false HOPE.This inconsiderate move is nothing more than what we should come to expect from the President – a man who, until July of this year, THREE YEARS into his Presidency, failed to draft a single page of debt-solving legislation for our Congress; a man who daily gives speeches around this country blaming conservatives for stalling his job-creation bill, one which his own party members in the Senate have openly stated is unfit and irresponsible; a man who was behind a federal bailout that gave $500 billion dollars to 800 corporate firms, who now has the audacity to pledge allegiance with those spending their lives in the streets in protest against such government intervention.

Think back to 2008. It was hope and regulation President Obama ran on. It was bipartisanship and an end to war. Yet somehow we are three years removed from such speeches and our economy is worse off, are troops still aren’t home and the leadership in the White House can only make fun of those trying to come up with solutions to improve our country’s morale.

A reminder to President Obama and his administration – you ran for this position. You wanted to become President of the United States of America. After three years in office, how and why are there still excuses? This was the job you wanted! If you care about the country, do your job better or let someone fill the position who will.

It is now the Obama Administration, not conservatives, who are the beltway game players and rough-neck politicians. Those who dare to oppose them are targeted with mudslinging and rhetoric. Herman Cain leads a group of conservatives who are renewed, modern, and ready to lead now!

Conservatives are straight-forward, tough – we will state facts and pitch our plans, and if the plans need work, we will continue to craft them until they are suitable for the American people. Conservatives are problem solvers – we acknowledge the hardships currently plaguing our country and spend every moment on this campaign working towards solutions based strategies to solve problems. Conservatives are careful and detailed – we are putting together specific, efficient, effective plans that can immediately apply to our limping economy. Conservatives are determined – we will not be deterred by the administrations attempts to mock our ideas, we will continue to strive to develop policies that will help our country out of some of its toughest days; we will not stay quiet when the bully asks us to.

It is our life’s work to gather information and form an opinion based on that information. And you have taken the initiative, by signing up to receive emails, to hear our goals of Common Sense Solutions.

If you support Herman Cain’s ideas and policies, if you respect his ability to speak to the American people in a straight-forward manner–one which encourages you to stay informed and learn about the problems facing our country– please consider donating tonight.

The ideas that Herman Cain has for this country just make sense. Together, we can make his ideas a reality.

Sincerely,

Friends of Herman Cain

The Dept Man’s Magical Tax Payer Funded Campaign Bus Tour (via Village of the Banned)

The Dept Man's Magical Tax Payer Funded Campaign Bus Tour H/T to Keith Koffler If Obama’s Not Campaigning, Why is He Campaigning? by Keith Koffler on August 16, 2011, 12:18 pm White House officials have been insisting for a couple of weeks that Obama’s bus tour through the Midwest has nothing to do with campaigning. It’s just a way to get the president among the people, especially, um, the people in presidential battleground swing states. This is an o … Read More

Is this America’s Last Independance Day? (via Village of the Banned)

We are seeing an assault on our freedoms and the way we do things everyday. We are told that our founders were nothing more that old white men that cared nothing for anything except themselves. We are seeing our history distorted, our values torn down, and our faith denied. We are told we must sacrifice all these things to remain a country. We see our media lie to us with straight faces, we see our leadership throw money around like it is nothing and we see the people of this country mocked and maligned by those same people. So many see the problems but fear facing them and do not know what to do. I don’t have all the answers, nobody does, but I know that we have to stand. I don’t know who said it but it remains true “if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.” If you believe in this country and what it stands for educate yourself, then educate everyone you know, and then stand for the country and the freedoms granted by God.

Is this America's Last Independance Day? We the People are seeing first hand the beginning of the end for America as we know it. We can all feel it and know that something is wrong, that something is happening, and we are not quite sure what. Perhaps we just don’t want to believe it is possible.  The German People didn’t believe it either, then it was too late. Please America, wake up to what is happening within our Government.  Get involved and let your voice be heard. Vote while you s … Read More

Debt Limit __ Spending Cut Sham In The Making (via Conservatives on Fire)

Wake up America! Especially all you tea party patriots! Congress is trying to scam us again. Tell them to stop or they will be the next ones to go. We didn’t put them in power for them to pull the rug over our eyes. We worked hard to get them there so they could fix the problem, not make it worse. Call your Congressperson and tell them no more, no way and no how! Stop the insanity!!!!!

One of the subsections of Human Events is called RedState which offers a morning briefing that I subscribe to. One of today’s articles is titled Debt Limit Surrender. Here is the opening paragraph: Members of the Tea Party and the conservative movement need to be prepared for some serious disappointment if news reports are correct. News reports have emerged indicating that “dollar for dollar” cuts to spending promised as part of a grand bargain t … Read More
