Little Boy

Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham

I didn't know how necessary adt security Troy was to have in a home until my son turned into a big boy. He is all boy and loves to go on adventures. Trying to keep him inside during the day is like trying to keep a baby from putting things in their mouth. He loves to be outside. He creates these elaborate adventures that he goes on. Most of his adventures include saving some princess from distress. He really is going to be a knight in shining armor when he grows up. Or at least I hope he keeps some of this adventure and strength in him. Since we got the system installed the doors beep every time they are opened for someone to come in or go out. It helps me keep track of where my little boy is. Is he inside or outside. It also helps me make sure he doesn't go out the front door without me being aware. Unfortunately we live on a busy street and he is only able to go out the back door by himself.

Stay at Home

Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes

Remember when EVERYONE was a stay at home mom? I was in a small community of people like that when I was growing up and that’s just what I thought was normal, to tell you the truth, and I know that nowadays it’s anything but normal where I live. I chose to stay home with the twins when I had them because I think it’s good for babies to have their moms close by as they’re growing up but a lot of the other women in my neighborhood seemed to look down on me for not having a full time job. I spend a lot of time worried about whether or not they’re happy and house stuff, like if the furnace will work when it gets cold and about the Oncor Electric rates in our area, you know, the usual stuff. My husband likes that we’re a really traditional style family and I have to say that even though I spend a lot of time at home, I’m proud of it!

Obama is not a great orator. He is a great narrator.

Democrat Smears on Limbaugh a Tactical MIstake

If there is one thing that democrats do well, it’s painting republicans as rich, racists, haters of the poor, haters of the environment, and baby seal and kitten (the cuddly ones) killers. In short, they are experts at smear tactics. Ken Starr, Wanita Broderick, Paula Jones, George Bush, Trent Lott, Don Imus, Kathlyn Willy, and Newt Gingrich, just to name a few. Now, democrats have targeted Rush Limbaugh. This will be their undoing.

The democratic strategy is to associate conservatism with Rush Limbaugh by calling him their leader and chastising his views as radical hate from the right. This is meant to draw attention away from claims of socialism and failing Obama policies, since Limbaugh is at the forefront of pointing these facts out. Already, we see weak republicans running from Rush Limbaugh. Due to the ignorance of the American public and the embarrassing bias from the mainstream media, this has been a successful tactic.

However, the democrats have erred in choosing Limbaugh as a target for their latest smear campaign. John McCain, for reasons I still don’t understand, was nominated for president on the republican ticket. McCain represented weak conservatism, with many believing him to be more liberal than conservative. The idea that the republican ticket needed to move left came from the media and democratic smears, calling republicans rich, racists, haters of the poor, haters of the environment, and baby seal and kitten (the cuddly ones) killers. The result was a definitive loss for republicans across the board.

The Republican Party will have to go through a major transformation back to conservative principles, championed by Ronald Reagan in the eighties. Rush Limbaugh has been a solid rock in maintaining these principles. Therefore, true conservatives are looking to him for leadership on moving conservatism back to the center of the Republican Party. Mark my words, no republican will win the presidency until he or she runs as a Reagan conservative. Those who flee from Rush Limbaugh (on the republican side) will lose their jobs as the conservative movement returns. Democrats, by drawing attention to Rush, are expediting this process. Especially since Obama’s policies will fail to do anything but drive the economy deeper into recession and move America further into an all out socialist state. Once the ignorant public who voted based on their feelings rather than intelligence see this, Rush’s voice will become all the more stronger.

Tax Hikes On The Rich WIll Cost You

Obama has proposed, as part of the second massive spending bill he has sent to congress, eliminating the Bush tax cuts, which essentially raises taxes on those making $250,000 or more a year. If allowed to pass, this will be devastating to an already beleaguered economy.

The most important thing that everyone needs to understand about all businesses is that they do not pay taxes. Taxes on business are paid for by consumers or the workforce. This comes in the form of lay-offs and price hikes on products and services. So if you are one of those people who hate the rich for having more money than you, and you feel good about the idea of making the mean rich people pay more, think again dummy.

I know a couple who owns a niche business restoring and providing parts for first generation automobiles, like Ford’s Model T. They are extremely worried about Obama’s plan to raise taxes. Although their business makes more than $250,000 a year, this money is used to pay their employees, business bills, etc. This was Joe the Plumbers problem by the way. Now, this wonderful couple already knows how they are going to deal with Obama’s coming tax hikes. They are going to have to lay-off one or two employees that have been working with them for over a decade. They simply have no choice. Now explain to me how this helps the economy? How does having two more unemployed workers bring us out of the current economic woes?

Let’s take one more example, this one hypothetical (soon to be reality). Let’s even focus on the much hated by the left, evil Walmart. Obama’s tax hikes raises taxes on Walmart and the evil rich CEOs. Now, a roll of toilet paper goes up, they lay-off employees, and freeze hiring. Good job Obama, you’ve done it again.

Americans, businesses, big and small, are what our economy is built on. When you tax the “rich,” those taxes get passed off to you, the little guy. A lot of you need to wise up and stop falling for the left’s class warfare tactics. Oppose this massive budget.

Take A Healthy Step Back

Thinking about what to blog about this week proved more difficult than usual. I don’t think I have ever been hit with such insanity from the political world , all at one time. This past week, The country has had to deal with the disgraceful Roland Burris, record government spending, auto bailouts, banking bailout, and now a bailout for Americans who have been unable to meet their obligations. Now, on top of all this, Obama wants to cut the deficit in half by raising taxes on those making over $250,000 (that’s the number today). Or as Obama calls Middle America, “The Rich.” So, in these hard economic times, after passing a farce of a stimulus plan that provides no help for the companies that drive our economy, Obama proposes we raise taxes on these same people. Rather than explain the ignorance of the events and Obama’s policies in his short run in the Presidency, I have decided to take a healthy step back.

A couple weeks ago in church, the pastor ended a sermon on the elements of relationships with a clip from Glenn Beck’s show, where he discusses the story of Irena Sendler.

Before you mimic the collective gasp that was heard in an otherwise silent sanctuary, remember, Rush Limbaugh was also defeated. In fact, I imagine none of us ever heard of Irena Sendler, and that should speak to us all.
