OH, NO! You’re Being Audited!
Posted 2/28/2011 @ 5:49:38 pm by rainboreview.com
You stop by the mailbox after work and thumb through the mail as you walk into the house. A chill runs up your spine as you see the IRS return address on an envelope and there isn’t a check in the window. You are being audited and need some advice.
How do you respond to this and should you be having a heart attack right about now? While many people lose it as soon as they believe that the IRS is going to be asking for their records and proof, the fact of the matter is that you shouldn’t panic. The best audit advice is to stay calm and gather the information that you need carefully, accurately and without worry. If you have kept a file folder, as I mentioned in a previous blog, then you should have everything at hand.

Missouri And Illegal Immigrants
Editor’s Note: The following appeared in our May 13 issue and is written by State Representative Nita Jane Ayres.
Nita Jane Ayres has agreed to write a follow-up editorial which will appear in our print edition on June 24. The follow-up will take a close look at the state’s legislation and how it deals with illegal immigrants.
We’re down to one week to go in the legislative session and bills are moving through the process at a remarkable pace. My goal is to keep you updated on all the pieces of legislation that may be of interest to you and your family. In the coming weeks, I hope to do that. However, this week I want to talk about an issue that Missouri has already addressed in a variety of ways – the issue of illegal immigration. I’m sure you’ve seen the headlines about Arizona’s new law aimed at dealing with those who enter our country illegally. It has been called the strictest immigration law in generations. While Missouri hasn’t gone to the same lengths as Arizona, our state has made significant policy changes that effectively deal with illegal immigrants who enter our state. Because of those changes, Missouri is ahead of the game when compared to many other states that are now dealing with this issue.
In 2007, the Missouri General Assembly approved HJR 7 to place on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri. Voters then went to the polls and approved the measure with nearly 90 percent voting in favor. With that, English became the official language for all governmental proceedings in Missouri. It also means no individual has the right to demand government services in a language other than English. A common language is the cornerstone of a cohesive and united state and country. Ensuring that English is our official language is simply common sense.
Another measure that directly addresses the issue of illegal immigration was passed in 2008. HB 1549 requires our Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be here illegally. It also allows Missouri law enforcement officers to receive training to enforce federal immigration laws. Furthermore, the bill makes it clear that illegal immigrants will not have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps and health care through MO HealthNet. With the passage of this legislation, Missouri sent a clear message that illegal immigrants are not welcome in our state, and that they are certainly not welcome to receive public benefits at the cost of Missouri taxpayers.
2009 saw another significant piece of legislation passed dealing with illegal immigration. HB 390 ensures Missouri’s public institutions of higher education do not award financial aid to individuals who are here illegally. The law also requires all postsecondary institutions of higher education to annually certify to the Missouri Department of Higher Education that they have not knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States. The bill represents another common sense approach to the issue as it ensures taxpayer dollars are not used to subsidize the education of someone who is in our country illegally.

So… What if Jared Lee Loughner was a Muslim? Wouldn’t that put the liberal media into a horrible pinch? Since Muslims are a protected group like a snail darter or a spotted owl, they would have to step lightly and make sure not to raise any anger with the public against any Islamic terrorist organizations. They wouldn’t be able to scream about his group affiliations and call for the execution of a near by bearded cleric. They couldn’t lay blame for the incident on someone on the other side of the continent who never heard of him.
But, Jared Lee Loughner isn’t a Muslim, so the liberal media, disregarding all facts, have used the actions of this deranged young man to attack everything conservative. In the few days since the shooting I have seen people in the media blame Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, The Tea Party, Republicans in general, all gun owners, the Second Amendment and all conservatives in general, especially conservative talk show hosts. The sheriff immediately blamed Rush Limbaugh for the shooting, although he admits there is no evidence what-so-ever that there is any connection. But that’s OK. The left go by the liberal mantra of “Don’t confuse me with facts, I know what I FEEL!”
Small pause for an experiment: Ask a liberal their opinion on a subject with which you are familiar. Ask the same question of a conservative. You may notice that the liberal will start their answer with the words “I feel…” and the conservative will start their answer with the words “I think…” Try this many times and you will usually get the same results.
Conclusion: Liberals “Feel” while conservatives Think.
When you go with what you “feel”, facts are unimportant, so it doesn’t matter what you say or how ridiculous you sound. You can’t be pegged down by your total disconnect with reality because you are a Liberal who “Feels”.
If, on the other hand, you like to deal with reality, you will look at what we like to call “Facts”. Such as… Everyone who knows Jared Loughner says that he is a liberal, a radical, pro-abortion, anti-capitalist, Satanist, anti-government, anti-military and (an interesting term) a self-proclaimed nihilist. Now for those of you heading for your dictionary, I’ll save you some time.
ˈni-/ Show Spelled[nahy-uh-liz-uhm, nee-] Show
1. total rejection of established laws and institutions.
2. anarchy, terrorism, or other revolutionary activity.
3. total and absolute destructiveness, esp. toward the world at large and including oneself: the power-mad nihilism that marked Hitler’s last years.
4. Philosophy .
a. an extreme form of skepticism: the denial of all real existence or the possibility of an objective basis for truth.
b. nothingness or nonexistence.
5. ( sometimes initial capital letter ) the principles of a Russian revolutionary group, active in the latter half of the 19th century, holding that existing social and political institutions must be destroyed in order to clear the way for a new state of society and employing extreme measures, including terrorism and assassination.
6. annihilation of the self, or the individual consciousness, esp. as an aspect of mystical experience.
Doesn’t sound very “Tea Party” to me, quite the opposite, in fact.
Again, going back to the people who actually KNOW him, you will find that he was apolitical, never listened to talk radio or watched the TV news. His views were his own. He was obsessed with Congresswoman Giffords and had been stalking her for almost 4 years. He was also known by the sheriff for his threats of violence against the Representative and others, yet did nothing about it.
Those who want the media to report facts are out of luck. If a heinous act is committed by a Muslim, the media engages in a full court press to apologize for Islam. If a barbaric act is committed by anyone else, the media does its best to shoehorn facts and non-facts into their preconceived notion that such an event could only happen because of something conservatives did.
So, conservative, right wing, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and NRA devotee? Not hardly. Fall guy for the left and a tool to sucker the uninformed into a “Hate The Conservatives” campaign? You betcha! They live to hate conservative values and they know that the liberal base will just suck up everything they are told without ever trying to learn the truth.
After all, they don’t need the truth, they know what they “Feel”.
Keep Them Dumb And Under Our Thumb
Posted 1/18/2011 @ 2:15:36 pm by rainboreview.com
It’s all just racist!
So… First Lady Michelle Obama is telling black children that needing to learn to read and write and do basic math and speak English is racist and discriminatory. What is she really doing? By doing this, she is telling black children that they are incapable of accomplishing the same as white children. They are too dumb to achieve a basic level of knowledge needed to live in America as equals with whites. No sense in even trying, you just can’t do it. Don’t worry, the guvmint will support ya. Don’t bother to try, we got dis covered. Just make sure you vote democrat,
Michelle, by the way, is a totally different story. She and her brother, Craig, were taught to read and write by their parents before they even started school. Both skipped second grade and by 6th grade she was put in a gifted class where she was exposed to three years of French before she graduated as class salutatorian. Michelle Obama knows full well the importance of school, education, learning and getting ahead. She is telling black youth the exact opposite of what her parents taught her, but then she is a member of the ruling class and the worst enemy to the ruling class is an educated proletariat. Since she and Barak like slogans her slogan could be, “Keep them dumb and under our thumb.”
Hey… Just because I did it , don’t mean that you should.
I look at race pimps like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and it makes me sad for people of color in America. I have used the term “race pimp” before and some people have asked me what that’s supposed to mean, so here is an explanation for all. A pimp turns out his people (whores) , female or male, and puts them out on the street to be screwed while he makes all the money. That’s as simple and polite as I can make it. Sharpton and Jackson travel around in jets and limos and neither one of them has ever held an honest job that I have heard of. They both carry the title of “Reverend”, but I couldn’t name a church either one of them pastored. I remember back in the sixties when you could send $10.00 to an address on a matchbook cover and they would give you credentials of ministry with whatever title you like. (I know, I did it myself) They have both gotten rich off the backs of black people (which I didn’t) by traveling around telling them that they are downtrodden by white Republicans. Their money, meanwhile, comes from rich democrats who want to keep black votes by keeping truth from them.
They ignore that it was a Republican, Abraham Lincoln, who brought about the end of slavery in America. They ignore that the Ku Klux Klan was started and populated by democrats throughout their existence. They ignore that Senator Robert K. Byrd, recruiter for the KKK was the democrat senate leader who lead the filibuster against the civil rights act of 1964 and received a lot of support from Al Gore Senior. They ignore that it was Republicans who pushed the legislation through. The more they ignore and hide the facts from black people in America, tell them that they don’t need to be educated, that needing to read and write and speak English is “Racist”, that the government should take care of them because white Republicans have oppressed them, the more they can keep them voting democrat and and keep them in democrat chains.
They invoke the name of Doctor Martin Luther King Jr, but never mention that he was a conservative Republican fighting against democrat oppression.

Dr. King said that he had a dream that men could be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin, but now we have elected a man to the highest office in the nation based on the color of his skin instead of the content of his character. People were so enthralled at the idea of having a black man as president, they didn’t even bother to check him out, to read his own words from his own books. They voted for someone who openly expressed his admiration of communism and the Marxist rule. As a conservative Republican, Dr. King would be aghast at what we have become, at what our votes have brought.
I realize that the haters are just going to become apoplectic over this comment, but after signing the Civil Right Act of 1964, President Lyndon Baines Johnson told two nearby governors, “I’ll have these n*****s voting democrat for the next 200 years”. He was confident that the act would help keep the “colored folk” down on the democrat plantation where they belong, since they aren’t smart enough to keep up with white folk, you understand.
Thanks for keeping the plantation dream alive, Michelle. Another generation of black children, born out of wedlock, will grow up undereducated and unmotivated and totally dependent on liberal government for their existence. And they will grow up thinking they are “entitled” to all kinds of things that are not in the constitution. It is not white conservatives, but people like you that oppress people of color in this country by telling them that they are not capable of making it on their own, so they shouldn’t even try.
OK… Here’s my 9-11 conspiracy theory…
Every president throughout America’s history who has been considered a “Great President” has been a president during a time of war.
George Washington, The Revolutionary War
Lincoln, The War between the states
Teddy Roosevelt, the Spanish/American War
Woodrow Wilson, WWI
Franklin D. Roosevelt, WWII
Eisenhower, the Korean war
Kennedy, who put us into Viet Nam
Ronald Reagan who won the Cold War
George H.W. Bush First Gulf War (but it was so short)
Bill Clinton, Kosavo and Yugoslavia
George W. Bush, Gulf War II
Barak Obama, Afghanistan (so far, depends on how it turns out)
My theory involves the Clinton Regime and a quest for “Greatness” in the history books.
When someone mentions the name, Bill Clinton, the first image that pops into most people’s heads is an overweight brunette intern and a cigar. I do not condone or endorse such things, but it is a matter of fact for a great number of men in powerful positions. I’m not attacking or defending, just stating fact. (To all the haters and defenders out there, Clinton was not impeached for getting some “relief”, he was impeached for telling lies under oath to the grand jury.)
Clinton will go down in history for his conduct and actions concerning the war efforts in the Baltic states. Wouldn’t it increase Clinton’s legacy if his vice president were to also go down in history as a great wartime leader? That is the possible link to the 9-11 conspiracy.
Twice, during the Clinton/Gore administration, Uganda offered Osama Bin Laden to Bill Clinton for prosecution. Both times Clinton responded in the negative. Naw, just let him go (but tell him to give me a call).The world’s leading terrorist, offered up on a silver platter, and released with Clinton’s blessings, a tool to be used later.
In the several months leading up to the 2000 election, The Clintons (both) along with many democrats were in front of the cameras on a regular basis, talking about the Weapons of Mass Destruction held by Saddam Hussein and the need to put an end to his tyrannical rule. “We know he has them,(WMDs) and we know where they are” America KNEW Saddam had these chemical weapons because America gave them to him for his war against Iran. The American public became more aware of this when video was released showing the use of these chemical weapons against Saddam’s own people. He gassed entire towns and had video made showing the images of people and animals quivering and convulsing as they died horrible and painful deaths. The Clintons pointed to this as proof positive that WMD’s were in the hands of a mad man. They were building up justification for a war which would be lead by Albert Gore Jr. Once they were able to get him elected, he would become a great president and extend the legacy of Bill Clinton as his mentor. To put the lock in, the Clinton/Gore administration made it official American policy to remove Sadam Hussein from power and effect regime change in Iraq.
A trigger was needed to make the whole plan come to fruition and a previously released tool would come in handy. “Don’t tell me a thing, I want plausable deniability”. (like most conspiracy theorists, I have no proof of any such conversations, so please bear with me here.) Plans were made for a “triggering event” which should take place after the election and crowning of Prince Albert. Left to his own devices, Osama Bin Laden went to work on a massive plan. Then, something went wrong.
At the end of the 2000 elections, the winner was George W. Bush and Al Gore conceded the victory to him. Clinton quickly dashed to Gore’s side and snatched him into a back room for a quick conference. (You’re messing with my legacy, dammit!)
When they emerged, Al had changed his tune and was demanding a recount of the votes in parts of Florida where they just KNEW they had bought more votes than that. Senile seniors who were bussed to the polling places were told to poke the second name down in the ballot card. Although Al Gore was the second name on the list, the hole that represented Gore was the third hole down. All those scared, blind, senile seniors that were shoved into voting booths by their democrat handlers cast their votes for Patrick Buchanan. (Oops! That’s what you get for trying to cheat!)
They recounted, and recounted and recounted, but each time, the numbers got even stronger for Bush. They kept trying to recount in just certain counties, but by Florida election laws, the entire state must be recounted. Then the Gore people tried to sue disallow all the votes mailed in by military members overseas, knowing full well that military tends to be predominantly Republican voters. Finally the Supreme Court told Florida that what they were doing was illegal and must cease. To this day, there are still democrats who cry that Bush was given the election by the Republican controlled Supreme Court, ignoring that there were more democrat appointees than Republican appointees on the bench. They continue to say that Bush was “Selected, not elected”. Check the facts… The Supreme Court didn’t declare George Bush president, they just told Florida that what they were doing was illegal and had to stop.
Sorry… I went off into a different rant there for a moment.
So, Al Gore is not moving into the White House, but that doesn’t mean a thing to Bin Laden. He is already looking forward to impaling the “Great Satan” and nothing will stop him. He and his fanatical devotees and fellow Jhihadists have several months to plant the explosives and primachord in the World Trade Towers (Yes, you just need to take a close look at the videos to see that there was definitly a controled implosion). On September 11, 2001, the weight of a new war was placed squarely on the shoulders of President George Walker Bush, not on Albert Gore Jr. Bush was now going to be the war president with all the glory and the enhanced legacy. That would just not do! Anyone who has been around for an election or two can tell you that democrats are very poor losers.
Once Bin Laden started bragging on video about the great strike against evil America, the troops were sent into Afghanistan to get him. Bin Laden crossed into Pakistan, but Pakistan would not give America permission to bring the war into their country. Hey, as long as we are in the neighborhood and the Clinton/Gore administration made it official American Policy to take Saddam out of power and effect regime change, why don’t we just step over here to Iraq and accomplish that little mission? It took a bit longer than Desert Storm, but they took Saddam Hussein out of power.
Searching around the country, the troops found a lot of weapons and bad guys, but they never found huge warehouses filled with crates marked “WMD”. This gave the democrats the chance to yell about Bush attacking Iraq for oil. Suddenly all the democrats, with the Clintons in the lead, were yelling about there being no evidence of WMDs even though the year before, they knew they were there and they knew where they were hidden. Satellite imaging showed convoys leaving Iraq and going into Jordan and Syria, but that didn’t mean anything to those opposed to Bush. They had an 8 year long “Hate Bush” campaign and you know that when you hear a lie often enough you start to believe it. So many liberals now believe that Bush is the son of Satan and is responsible for everything that has gone wrong in America since 1776. They even swear that he is responsible for all the evil and harm Barak Obama has done to America over the past two years.
Sorry, *I started to go into another different rant again.
So, the condensed version… The events of 9-11 were set up by the Clinton/Gore administration to enhance Bill Clinton and Al Gore’s legacies. Failing to steal the election in 2000 lead to everything being Bush’s fault from 2000 to the present and throughout the Obama rule, maybe even longer than that.
As for the WMD’s? Wikileaks has revealed a few things about them:
Wikileaks: WMD program existed in Iraq prior to US invasion
The release by Julian Assange’s web site Wikileaks of classified documents reveals that U.S. military intelligence discovered chemical weapons labs, encountered insurgents who were specialists in the creation of toxins, and uncovered weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. However, Washington, DC officials and the news media have ignored this information.
One of the WikiLeaks document dumps reveals that as late as 2008, American troops continued to find WMD in the region.
There are numerous mentions of chemical and biological weapons in the WikiLeaks documents, however the U.S. media appear only interested in those portions of the leaked material that highlight actions that are viewed as embarrassing for the U.S. military such as the accusation that U.S. commanders were aware of abuse and “torture” of prisoners by Iraqi soldiers and police officers.
The U.S. Defense Department continues to demand that WikiLeaks
founder Julian Assange immediately return the stolen military documents in his possession, including recent documents that created another stir when published, according to Elaine Wilson of American Forces Press Service.
The department also wants the whistle-blowing web site to permanently delete all versions of these documents, which contain classified and sensitive information, from its web site, computers and records, Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell told reporters during a Pentagon briefing.
WikiLeaks documents don’t reveal evidence of a massive
weapons program by Saddam Hussein — the Bush administration’s leading rationale for invading Iraq — or some enormous stockpile of WMD, but do reveal that chemical weapons did vanish from the Iraqi battlefield.
According to the latest WikiLeaks document “dump,” Saddam’s toxic arsenal, significantly reduced after the Gulf War, remained intact. Jihadists, insurgents and foreign (possibly Iranian) agitators turned to these stockpiles during the Iraq conflict and may have brewed up their own deadly agents, according to the WikiLeaks web site.
During that time, former Iraqi General Georges Sada, Saddam’s
top commander, detailed the transfers of Iraq’s WMD. “There [were] weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands,” Mr. Sada said. “I am confident they were taken over.”
Gen. Sada’s comments came just a month after Israel’s top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, claimed that Saddam Hussein “transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria.”
in 2004, for example, American special forces members secretly
purchased what they believed to be containers of liquid sulfur mustard which have been used since World War I. Following testing in a military lab, the chemical was then secured and transferred to a secret location.
Meanwhile, also in Iraq, U.S. recon soldiers inspected a suspected “chemical weapons” plant:
“One of the bunkers has been tampered with,” they write. “The integrity of the seal [around the complex] appears intact, but it seems someone is interested in trying to get into the bunkers.”
During the a battle in Fallujah, American forces claim
they discovered a “house with a chemical lab … substances found are similar to ones (in lesser quantities located a previous chemical lab.” The following day, there was a call in another part of the Fallujah requesting “explosives experts to dispose of a chemical[weapons] cache.”
In addition, an armored vehicle came upon “155mm rounds filled with an unknown liquid, and several of which are leaking a black tar-like substance.” Initial tests were inconclusive. But later, “the rounds tested positive for mustard.”

Egypt And America
Posted 2/14/2011 @ 6:57:32 pm by rainboreview.com

The US gives Mubarak $1.5 Billion per year and his most loyal supporters are only armed with rocks… Where is the money?
So… The democrat youth of Egypt, egged on by the Islamic Brotherhood, rioted for 18 days and demanded the autocratic rule of President Hosni Mubarak end, that he step down and a civilian style government be installed. Mubarak finally did step down and the military is in charge. The cabinet, parliament and congress are now also kicked out and the constitution is suspended as the revolutionary rioters demanded.
Among other things, It seems that the people had no freedom to address their grievances against the government which we in America are promised in the First Amendment of our U.S. Constitution. They have been unable to speak out against an oppressive regime which would crush resistance and punish those who disagreed with official policy. Many protesters were beaten by police in the beginning of the revolution, but many of the police later stripped off their uniforms and joined the rioters. (Would you want to be a policeman in Egypt for $85 – $100 per month?)
President Obama told President Mubarak that he should step down.
Women swooned at his words
I see parallels between Egypt and the U.S. when I look at our current situation in America. We have an oppressive ruler over a regime which crushes any opposition. Businesses and banks have been seized, Free Enterprise has been declared “the enemy”. He doesn’t use the police and the military force, instead he uses his dogs in the media to assassinate his enemies, just like he learned in the book,”Rules For Radicals” by Neo-Marxist and Satanist, Saul Alinsky. (A man every leader should emulate?)
America was not set up this way. The leaders were meant to be servants of the people. The people are meant to be citizens, not subjects of the throne.
We fought a revolution before to make sure of that.
At the beginning of this country, there was heavy taxation without representation. Today, we have the same thing… heavy and ever increasing taxation by an arrogant ruler who’s only desire is a Marxist state of equal poverty for all but a handful of elites.
If enough American Citizens get angry enough and riot in the streets of D.C. demanding that the arrogant ruler step down, do you think Obama would step down? Instead of suspending the Constitution, could we re-institute the Constitution Obama and his minions have tried to undermine from day one? Would the Police and the Military join with the citizens in revolt since the regime’s actions effect them as well?
Of course, I would never advocate such a thing… but is something to think about.
A Little Extra:
Many people know by now that Alinsky had a dedication to Lucifer on the earlier copies of his book Rules for Radicals that went as such:
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the
very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or
which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against
the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer”
“Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” — Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky
Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weathermen Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

The Target, Sarah Palin
Posted 2/15/2011 @ 6:40:12 pm by rainboreview.com
Small | Medium | Large
Poor Sarah Palin… A character in the political world who is a real person instead of a politician. She scares the britches off Democrats and Republicans alike because they don’t know how to deal with real people. The politicians on both sides are so used to telling people what they assume they want to hear instead of saying what they really think. Sarah is honest and will not tell a lie just to give you a “Feel good” experience. When you are honest about what you think, you are bound to upset a lot of the people who’s votes you want.
People just love to attack what they fear
Politicians fear an honest approach, and, as any psychologist will tell you, people will attack what they fear.
Sarah Palin has been fearfully attacked ever since she came on to the national scene. No one has endured such vitriol and name calling by both political parties as she has. As a beauty queen, mayor and even Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin was no threat to the mainstream politicians. Now that she is in the spotlight, nation wide and speaking about what she really believes, she is a threat to politicians around the country who may actually be expected to tell the truth as well. (Shudder!) Whenever she speaks her mind, the opposition on both sides tries to figure a way to attack her words, and sometimes, they just attack anything about her, or her children.
Mocking Sarah is the hobby of the media
Ridicule is so much easier than answering the charges
OK… So Sarah has been known to say things that detractors can attack, and attack they do. Her ideas and concepts are not those of the main stream. Her most recent blunder, if blunder it was, was during her attempt to defend herself after the Arizona killings. A deranged young man who had been stalking Congresswoman Giffords for four years shot and killed several people and the press and celebrities started immediately blaming Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and talk radio. If she remained silent, it would look as though she felt guilty for her complicity in the killings, so she answered her critics in a very civil manner and on camera. Her blunder was the use of the term “Blood Libel”. Liberals who are familiar with the term immediately started calling her names and saying she was anti-Semitic because of the original meaning of the term. Jews were falsely accused of killing Christian children and use their blood to make matzos for Passover. (There is no historical evidence of this ever happening).
Whether she understood the meaning or she didn’t, she was actually
correct in the use of the term. The false accusations had to be addressed.
On January 10, 2011, the Wall Street Journal published an opinion piece titled “The Arizona Tragedy and the Politics of Blood Libel” by University of Tennessee Distinguished professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds, two days before Sarah Palin used the term. Why wasn’t the professor excoriated and reviled by the left? Is it because he is a college professor and most of them are far left? You Betcha! If he had been a conservative Republican professor they would have demanded his expulsion at once.
I like Sarah Palin and her political views. If she were the Republican candidate against Barak Obama I would vote for her without reservation. I like the idea of an honest politician. It’s a refreshing idea. However, due to the fear so many feel for her, I hope she doesn’t run for the White House. The Democrats will turn out in huge numbers to stop her and reluctant Republicans will stay home to avoid voting for her. Sad that so many will allow a Marxist to rule America for another four years just because they are scared of an honest woman.
HEY! REPUBLICANS! Get out there and vote for whoever ISN’T a Marxist! Don’t be afraid of honesty in politics.
So Saint Valentine’s day will soon be upon us and millions of people will feel obligated by tradition and social pressure to make an annual proclamation of love and affection. This annual event brings out the florist, the chocolatiers, the jewelry vendors and greeting card makers like cockroaches. All are trying to pressure you into out-doing the other guy so your mate will be impressed and shower you with affection. (and they can pocket a lot of money)
Who was this Valentine guy anyway?
Valentine was a priest in Rome, who, with Marius and his family, assisted the martyrs in the persecution under Claudius II. Since he was caught marrying Christian couples and aiding any Christians who were being persecuted, Valentine was arrested and imprisoned. He was sent by the emperor to the prefect of Rome, who ordered him beaten with clubs and beheaded. He was executed on February 14th in the year 270 AD. In 496 AD Pope Gelasius declared February 14 to be a celebration day in honor of his martyrdom.
So, how does the beating and beheading of a man almost 2000 years ago put us in a romantic mood and cause this annual competition to impress? Valentine is considered by the Catholic church to be the patron saint of lovers and young couples. He is also considered by the florist, the chocolatiers, the jewelry vendors and greeting card makers to be a gold mine. Many others try to get in on the act as well. Competitive advertising can be fierce. A teddy bear is cuter than chocolates, a luxury car with a big bow on top is more impressive than jewelry, a day at a theme park is more fun than flowers, but whatever you do you MUST have a card!
I have always thought that the greeting card companies are the ones who have blown every imagined “special” day way out of proportion. They make cards for everything! Every holiday, birthday, anniversary, Groundhog day, national pickle week or swine festival. So the poultry farmers clean up around Thanksgiving, Candy manufacturers get rich at Halloween, Easter and Valentines Day, toy factories are rolling it in at Christmas, fireworks makers are really hot around July 4th and New Years eve and even breweries make more at Saint Patrick’s Day. Greeting card makers are raking it in all year ’round and could possibly be more influential and powerful than the Illuminati, Skull and Bones or the New World Order. They could be the greatest evil known today…
My house, Danny’s house, Rick’s house, Mark’s house, Donna’s house and sometimes Diane’s house. Every day after school we would gather in front of someone’s TV and watch the Mickey Mouse Club.
Childhood friends… They reside in the dark, almost lost recesses of your mind and can come up for a peek every once in a while. Their appearance can be caused by something as simple as a bird’s song, or a scent on the air. Hearing Doves coo in the early morning will always remind me of my first love, Donna. We lived two houses away from each other and were born on the same day with-in an hour of each other. She loved to listen to the doves and I would sit with her on the sidewalk to listen, too. We were five years old and destined to be married. Our birthdays were the same, we listened to doves together and watched Mighty Mouse cartoons faithfully every Saturday morning. With that, we could build a lifetime together and buy a couple of babies when I had enough money. Ah… Memories.
The names listed above were my closest friends and, Oh, the adventures we had in a large farming community in North-Eastern Iowa. Old Widow Hayes had a large garage about the size of a barn with a couple of loose boards in the back. At times we would sneak in and explore the treasures there. Not treasures to most people, but things which would make our imaginations soar. Boxes with old clothes that the girls wanted to try on. That old car that hadn’t been driven since forever would be used to chase down gangsters with Eliot Ness or become the cockpit of a bomber over Nazi Germany. My favorite, an old Indian motorcycle that hadn’t moved since Mr. Hayes died, that quickly became a horse that I would ride along with The Lone Ranger and Tonto or Roy Rogers and Hopalong Cassidy. The air was dusty but always with a thick smell of the lilac bushes that were planted all around the garage.
My number one, bestest friend was actually my big sister, and what boy would admit that? Yes… I was the oddball among my friends because I actually got along with and loved my sister. We sheltered each other from the darkness and evil that lurked about, in our home and elsewhere. We played together, we prayed together, we huddled together in fear and laughed together in joy. We would comfort each other after either one got whipped, because if one of us did wrong, we were usually both punished… One should have prevented the other from doing wrong. At the time, I didn’t think it was fair to either of us, but it brought us closer together. To this day, half a century later, I can count the fights we’ve had on one hand and have fingers left over. How often I have wished that on other families.
As the years go by, friends and family part ways and spread out around the country. I now live in Georgia, my family lives in Iowa, Alabama and Kentucky. I have maintained contact with family through the years with mail and telephone, but friends are a different story. Through the miracle if the internet, I have found Mark again, living in Indiana, Danny died years ago in a car wreck, his sister with him. I never found Dianne, but I found Donna many years ago while I was in the Army. She had become an anti-war activist and would not even speak to me. Rick is the only one I have found still living in Iowa. We sometimes communicate through the internet, but he has formed strong political ideas (that border on the insane) and they conflict with mine. Three girls I dated back in Iowa have died; Cancer, alcohol and Deep Vein Thrombosis. Two of them I actually loved and cared for, but time and distance have softened the blow. We can’t go back and un-do or re-do the past, but we can cherish the memories we like and let the rest fade into oblivion. Continue reading
