Richard Burr Staff Still Clueless

I decided to go down to his local office again yesterday. I spoke to the lady who works with veterans. She tells me they have no policy people in local offices. So, I wondered if they communicate our wishes to the senator or his DC staff. She assures me that she does. 

Just as in our DC visit, his staffer was clueless. The staffer said,"The senator is going to do what he thinks is best." Oh boy. I explained how the senator needed to listen to we the people! This isn't about what he honks is best- he is supposed to do what we the people want. 

A vote against cloture is a vote against my family with sick kids. I don't see hope for Richard Burr joining the side of the people. He's sold his soul and is part of the establishment we want removed from DC.

Protest At Richard Burr's Office

Surprisingly, a few of the folks who came in after us to talk to Senator Burr didn't get a kind reception. One of the ladies in his office laughed at them and told them they were stupid! 

I went in with three others. Here I am with Reggie outside his office. 
Then I snapped this photo of my friends talking to Burr's staffer:
After we left, other people came in to speak. We stood on the sidewalk for over an hour. Many people were waving, honking and giving us thumbs up. A school bus driver, UPS driver, the hospital bus driver, an ambulance driver and many others. One man stopped and repeatedly yelled the F word at us without a care for the children in attendance. Another lady came by twice so she could yell, "Shame on you," and wag her finger. We just laughed. I told the F bomb man I'd pray for him. They both parked along the sidewalk- very bizarre. 

Protest at Kay Hagan's Office

I Monday, a small group of us went to Kay Hagan's Greensboro office. I asked the staff to thank the senator for signing onto a bill that removes IPAB. Even though we know it has been sitting in committee since February, she is on there. We know it is very unlikely she'd ever change her stance on Obamacare

Here are a few of us outside her office. We then went in, I handed her staff my letter and the others filled out forms letting the senator know we want Obamacare to be defunded. 
Then we headed outside to protest.

Obamacare Hurts More Families-Real American Families

Several friends are finding out just how Obamacare is working out for them. A close friend told me today that her employer and her husband's employer are dropping spouses from their plans. With Chronically ill kids, it isn't helpful to have to meet two OOP maxes, two Deductibles, etc. I find it appalling that the Obama Administration has spent millions on propaganda to tell the American people that Obamacare is really good for them.

Another friend recently wrote this letter to her senator's LA:

Dear Margaret,

My husband retired at the end of 2008.  For the first couple years of retirement we purchased insurance from my former company.  The company's insurance continued to escalate so I decided to look elsewhere.   In January 2012 we went on BCBSNC.  Our plan is a high deductible HSA plan.  We have a 10000 dollar deductible and we pay about 500 dollars a month.  Taking the high deductible plan cut our premiums in about half.  Recently BCBSNC informed me that due to the ACA, my current plan will not be grandfathered and we can expect LARGE increases in our premiums. (we estimate $1200/mth)  They also mentioned that we may not be able to maintain our current doctors/hospitals.  When I called BCBS they told me that the reason my plan was not grandfathered was because I was not in the plan as of March 23, 2010.  Therefore we now have tax payers that can still have high deductible or other plans and others like me that are being forced to over insure ourselves.  This really doesn't seem at all fair to me.  By the way my husband and I  are not yet eligible for Medicare so this is all pre-Medicare.  We hope the Senator will vote FOR  and lead on the defund Obamacare bill when/if it comes to a floor vote in the Senate. The majority of Americans do not want this unaffordable, unfair, unworkable, UnAmerican bill.  We need Senator Burr to support the Graves bill in the Senate and influence  others to vote to defund.  It’s not really a “dumb” idea since we see the House voted in an over-whelming majority reflecting the wishes of the public.
Hopefully information like our story can help to get this thing killed before it literally starts killing not just jobs, but people.

Hippie Theme Song for Our DC Trip

Just a bit of fun for you this Friday. This was the theme song of our DC trip this week. Enjoy! Then get back to work on defunding Obamacare! Have a great day, y'all!

Obamacare IS Socialized Medicine

The left is constantly getting on us for saying that Obamacare is Socialized Medicine. They can't handle the truth.


By dictating what insurance companies must cover and what they cannot cover, the government controls the medical system. The government says, as of next year, you must have a *government approved* insurance plan. THAT is socialism. You cannot purchase insurance that covers the things YOU want- you have to purchase insurance that covers the things government dictates. Socialism removes freedom. Socialism removes choice. With Obamacare, you lose the freedom to choose any plan you want. You have to choose a government plan or pay a penalty tax. How is that NOT socialism? or better still, how is that NOT communism? Basically, the Democrats want you to think you have the freedom to choose..... that's why they want companies to offer several *government approved* plans. 

When an HHS Secretary can force practicing Catholics to violate their religious beliefs, that is socialized medicine. Our government is forcing religious employers to provide insurance plans that cover abortion drugs like Plan B and Ella as well as covering birth control, even if they morally object. Hobby Lobby is facing 1.3 million dollars a day in fines for not obeying the HHS Mandate. This should never happen in America. 

The ACA sets up new departments that will be run by unelected officials that we the people have no recourse to fire. That is socialism! If you read the bill, then you know it repeats over and over "The secretary shall" - there is a section on "Infusion therapy" that says the secretary shall set up a committee and then based on the committee's recommendations decide what medications will be covered under the *government approved* insurance plans. So, the blood product my son infuses weekly, will it make the list? The copay for that blood product stayed the same from 2005-2010- since Obamacare, it has increased 100%. If the government dictates that this blood product is not on their list under government approved health plans, I cannot fire those who made that decision. THAT is socialism.

We've already seen Medicaid patients who used to receive certain treatments be denied those treatments since Obamacare passed. My neighbor's daughter had a heart transplant and is now in her 20s. Treatments they used to cover are no longer covered. A friend of mine adopted a daughter with Sickle Cell Anemia and Medicaid will no longer pay for her pain medication. If you know anything about Sickle Cell, you know it is a very painful disease!  

Remember Barbara Wagner who was denied her chemotherapy  by the state of Oregon. She died after appealing twice and being denied. The state did offer to pay for her assisted suicide. THAT is socialized medicine. We don't want this in America and that is why we are fighting to defund Obamacare.

The Defund Obamacare Banner Makes it to the White House

We were very quick in unrolling our banner and snapping a few pics. This may have been the highlight of our three days in Washington, D.C. We made itout of D.C. wirhout being arrested. 

Burr Doesn't Get It

We're being sold a pack of lies from so-called conservatives and the left, folks. My friends and I met with Richard Burr's Healthcare LA on Tuesday and it wasn't pretty. We'd met with her back in March, but that meeting was more friendly. Like with our first meeting of the day with Hagan's people, we knew Burr was not on our side regarding the defunding of Obamacare.

Margaret, his LA, assured us that Burr was doing all he could to repeal and defund Obamacare. She said he was signed on to a few bills that would defund Obamacare, though at the moment, she could not recall any numbers or titles. She said he was opposed to the strategy being used by Senators Lee and Cruz. She was visibly frustrated during the entire meeting. She said, "We are doing everything we can, the Republicans are doing what they think is best..."  It was we are doing and we think this other strategy is best, we, we, we without a mention of WE THE PEOPLE. At one point, I said, "I've noticed you've been using a lot of "wes" and telling us that "we" are doing what "we" think is best, but you seem to have forgotten that you are supposed to do what WE the people want. We don;t have a top down government, we have a bottom up government." I explained how our NCGOP passed a resolution to defund Obamacare and I reminded her that the same resolution was passed at the RNC. Voting no means a vote against what the party wishes.

My friends engaged her and like all the anti-defund Obamacare folks, she hit the major talking points and ignored us when we gave her statistics, or facts. She continued to believe that defunding would lead to a government shutdown in spite of the fact I told her that we know that government will not shut down any essential services deemed essential by OMB. So Veterans services, the military, FBI and other federal law enforcement would continue to have services and operate normally. SS, Medicare, Medicaid and entitlement funding is NOT subject to annual appropriations.Regardless, the Graves Resolution CR doesn't shut government down.

She really sounded as if she and the senator have given up. She said, "At the end of the day, President Obama is still president so nothing will get through." My friend responded, "At the end of the day, Burr is still our senator." Do we really not fight simply because Barack Obama is President and/or because we do not have a majority in the Senate!? Really? When do Democrats every give up? Have you ever known them to give up when they are the minority? 

I thought it was interesting that Tuesday afternoon, Margaret said we'd taken Burr's "dumbest idea ever" quote out of context and then the next day, his interview with HuffPo comes out saying, "Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told The Huffington Post that he still thinks demanding that President Barack Obama's health care law be defunded in order to avoid a government shutdown is a "dumb idea," as he deemed it last July."

The article went further. '"I said it was the dumbest idea I'd ever heard of," Burr said. "I still think it's a dumb idea, because you can't defund Obamacare." The North Carolina Republican added that he hadn't determined how he'd vote on a continuing resolution, because it wasn't clear what type of bill Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to bring to the floor. But a source close to Burr said he opposes a strategy that would tie an effort to defund the health care law to the government funding measure."

She got up in a huff at one point and the meeting was suddenly over. She told my friends as we were leaving that she was tired of Republicans fighting with one another. I guess she forgot that it was her boss who came out in public and took swipes at Senators Cruz and Lee. He should have spoken to them privately and brought them his own idea. 

Defund Obamacare Photo at the Capitol

After a long day of meetings, we were finally able to unroll my banner and get this picture in front of the Capitol. I made this banner for our local town hall meeting and it ended up at 5 town halls across North Carolina and at two defund Obamacare protests here in NC. I mailed it to the last town hall and then Dee returned it to me when we protested at Renee Ellmer's office last week.

Hannah took the picture. She has a blog: Unalienable Liberty I Tweeting the photo out late Tuesday night and was surprised to see Senator Ted Cruz share it on his Facebook page the next day! Amazing! The comments by liberals made me laugh. They cannot refrain from name calling. Teabillies and rag tag group. We actually like the name "TeaBillies" - you know it fits with the theme of our trip this time- we did camp at Pohick Bay and drove along the PoWhite Expressway.

Don't you just love America? Our concern is not with numbers- we already know a majority of Americans feel the same way we do- we've just got the courage to stand alone in front of the Capitol. We are a group of 6 Americans (gotta count the photographer) who are not part of a lobbying group- just ordinary citizens who went to DC to meet with their Senators and Representatives and asked them to #defundobamacare The story behind the banner- it was a banner that I made for ourdefund obamacare town hall here for the 5th and 12th Congressional districts here in NC- it went to 5 such town halls, and two defund Obamacare protests in our own state. When we go to DC, we like to get photos and this time we brought the banner for our photos. We were not concerned with numbers, just that we got a message sent to Congress. We had no idea that Senator Cruz would post it or share it. Call us teabillies or a rag tag group- your insults do not bother us. We are proud to stand for what we believe and proud to be in the greatest nation on earth where we can petition our government for a redress of grievances. We cherish that which is uniquely American. It was a blessing and an honor to meet Senator Cruz at coffee Tuesday morning and I am proud of him for his hard work and fighting for the American people.Isn't it great to live in a nation where you have the freedom to insult us for our stance?

Virginia Foxx "Ted Cruz is Brainwashing People"

We had a meeting with Representative Virginia Foxx this past Tuesday. We already knew that she wasn't on our side on the defunding Obamacare issue and we tried our best to prepare for the meeting, just as we had for our meetings with Hagan, Burr and Coble. Congresswoman Foxx was the most well versed in the anti-defund talking points. We felt that she and her aide were angry with us, the TEA Party and Ted Cruz.

She and her aide stuck to their guns that defunding Obamacare just was not possible. At one point, her aide said, "Someone in the TEA Party sent out a notice that it was a gimmick and we were flooded with calls."  She went on to say, "We just don't have time to explain to people why it can't be defunded, it would take fifteen minutes!" To which I asked, "Why not? Shouldn't you be taking the time to explain it to folks, then they would understand and not be calling?" The Aide stated that if they explained it to everyone who called to ask, no one would ever get through because the lines would remain busy. My friend Debra said, "Isn't that your job? To explain it to the people?"

At one point, Representative Foxx stated, "Ted Cruz is brainwashing people." We were shocked by this statement.She also said, "Mike Lee and Ted Cruz are deflecting attention away from the Senate because they simply cannot deliver," in reference to defunding Obamacare. She explained that the proposed CR last week was not a gimmick. As she explained it and from the notes I have of the meeting, there were to be two bills. One for defunding Obamacare and a CR. The House would vote on both bills at the same time, but would only send over to the Senate the defunding bill. After being forced to vote on the defund bill, the House would release the CR.

Her other arguments were that they cannot legislate in CR appropriations and the separation of authorizing bills and appropriations bills. Later, she reiterated this at the House session when she explained that they were voting on an authorization bill that night. After authorization, money must be appropriated.Throughout the entire meeting, they both maintained that the Congresswoman was opposed to Obamacare and wanted it repealed. She reminded us that they had voted to repeal it over 40 times in the House. I told her that our goal was to, "Defund, delay and defeat Obamacare."

The Congresswoman also printed off an article from the Wall Street Journal for us all and maintained that entitlement spending cannot be defunded and talked about the "auto-pilot" spending, as well. She stated that they would rather leverage the debt ceiling because the President wants to end the sequester. She felt that this would mean the Republicans could then cut Obamacare mandatory spending. We asked her to stand with us in defunding Obamacare by supporting the Graves Resolution CR. She and her aide both said they felt it was not possible, but they thanked Graves for putting pen to paper and trying. They added that it had to be looked at by the rules committee and we'd have to see if it made it through.

While I am no expert on defunding Obamacare, I agree with Heritage Foundation, Freedomworks, Senators Lee and Cruz, Representative Meadows and other conservatives who have explained ad nauseam  exactly how it can be done.Both she and her aide mentioned government shutdown and I responded with the fact that the government would not shutdown essential services that are deemed essential by OMB. We also made sure to remind her that we know that the House defunds mandatory spending every year through CHIMPS. While we didn't have answers to every point they made, I think we did a decent job explaining that we know Obamacare can be defunded.

Foxx and her aide insisted that it could not be done. Yet, before we left DC yesterday morning, the word on the street was that Republican leadership is going to vote on the Graves Resolution CR. It is a miracle! That which we have been repeatedly told cannot be done, can be done! Alleluia!

We left the meeting feeling insulted. We all discussed the events and we seemed to all be thinking, "Hey, we are the TEA Party" and "We support Ted Cruz" while they were speaking to us.  I was honestly shocked, because I have voted several times for Foxx in elections and have always felt she was a true conservative.

I called her office this morning and spoke to an intern. He did not know if Congresswoman Foxx is going to support the Graves Resolution CR.  Hannah's blog post about the meeting: Unalienable Liberty Hannah is a 17 year old patriot who loves America and is fighting hard for conservative values.Her mom also has a blog and will be blogging about the meeting soon. I will share the link to her post, when it is up.

**Virginia Foxx ended up supporting the Graves Resolution CR and standing with her constituents. After the government shutdown, she is one of the few Republicans in the house  who voted NO on the clean CR that was passed. I am thankful that Representative Foxx stood with the American people and for defunding Obamacare.

Camping in the Capital

Getting ready for our Homeschool Moms Against Obamacare "Defund Obamacare Tour". Yesterday, this was the scripture I was focusing on:  Ps. 18:28-32: "You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With Your help I can advance against any troop; with my God I can scale a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect."

Years ago, when I first met Debbie and Michelle on the football field, I knew I had met kindred spirits. Seriously, I know no other women willing to camp in a cabin without a bathroom just to go to DC to meet with their elected officials. Little did I know back then that God would call us to be a force for change in our nation. We have spent hours praying for our nation, discussing the Constitution, our founders, our current leaders, the policies of our government- and we've decided that, with God's grace, we ARE going to take a stand and fight for that which is uniquely American! The Declaration, Constitution and its Bill of Rights are worth fighting for! We all realize that everything we are doing is orchestrated by God and we trust that He will use us as his instruments in DC. As we've been planning, He has opened the most amazing doors for us and we know that He is going to do amazing things on this trip. I keep thinking of David and Goliath. We may be a small group, but we know that God is bigger than our own government. We are placing all of our trust in the Creator. We humbly ask Him to use us for His glory and we ask for clarity, that He would show us His will and that we would humbly submit to doing His work and not our own. This is an epic battle for the soul of our nation. Suit up in the Armor of Christ, ladies. You know that each time we embark on these trips, satan attacks. I love Ephesians 6:11-"Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil." We are using the scripture Hannah pointed out this morning as the scripture for this trip: "And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say." -Luke 12:11-12 (ESV)

It's going to be a great trip- we need prayers for our trip and for the men we are leaving behind. Ha ha...probably more for the latter.

Action Alert! Action Needed to Defund Obamacare! Call!

Okay, folks! We need you to make more calls. Ask your representative to support the Graves CR (HJ Res 62)

There are two Graves bills.  The first one, (HR 2682) was what Graves was proposing to leadership to draft as legislation to attach to the rider.  Now because leadership didn't do that, Graves and the 42 Members have drafted what you could call, the Graves CR (HJ Res 62).  Graves wants to be a productive Member and show them that hey, you didn't want to do it, so here is the CR that you should have drafted originally.  This also flies in direct opposition to the notion that it can't be done.  If you can put something into legislative text (which is what the Graves CR is) it can be done.

The target and the message haven't changed.  If you are asking your Member to Defund Obamacare through the CR, they will know what you're saying. You can let them know that you know the details by adding "the Graves CR"  For the Hill, that now means to support the Graves CR.

It is looking like late next week is when they will have the CR vote.  Continue to ask your Member to Defund through the CR and they will know what you're saying.

Let's make them feel the heat!

Obamacare Raises Insurance Rates in KY

"Humana actuary Nick Mueller today confirmed the Kentucky Department of Insurance has approved ObamaCare health premiums very close to the eighty percent increase he requested in June." 

The scary part is that Humana is one of the lower priced insurances in Kentucky.  Of course, no matter how many times we share these facts, the left continues to insist rates are going down.  Or, like the Rowan County Democratic Party chairwoman told is outside of the General Assembly many months ago, Obamacare will make costs go down after they come up. She insisted that after costs rise, Obamacare would bring them down. 

You can read the entire article here:

Medical Device Tax Explained

Today, I'm knocking out a few responses to claims made by the left on my recent YouTube video.

The left seems to be clueless on how the Medical Device Tax in Obamacare raises our costs. The government charges the manufacturer a tax on the medical items. Pumps, catheters, medical supplies, walkers, so forth and so on. This increases the cost of the manufacturer to produce these items. Sure, sure, the left argues that it is *ONLY* 2.3% and I've even had a few tell me that it will go away. Is that last statement not the funniest thing you have ever heard? Have you ever known a tax to go away and NOT increase?  And what is 2.3% of a multi-billion dollar industry?

I digress, so this adds an extra 2.3% onto the cost of manufacturing. The manufacturer then passes this cost onto the home health companies and other such distributors of the medical devices being manufactured. These companies then charge the insurance companies more for these medical devices. Where does the insurance company get the money to pay the higher prices for these medical devices? By way of higher premiums, copays, deductibles and out of pocket maximums.

I like to use this example with my kids. You own a business making cookies. You sell your cookies for 5 cents each and your profit is 3 cents per cookie. The government comes along and says you must pay a 2 cent cookie tax on every cookie sold. What do you do? Do you keep the price of your cookies the same and thus only make 1 cent per cookie sold or do you pass the tax along to the consumer by increasing the cost of your cookie to 7 cents each and thus keeping your profit at 3 cents per cookie? It's a no brainer.

I've looked at our EOBs and the insurance company is paying more for the medical supplies than they have in the past. And that's how I know it's Obamacare raising the cost of medical devices!

Update on *THAT* Corporate Greed the Left is Always Talking About

Here's an update on that *corporate greed* the left is always talking about. Hubby's employer is self insured and has paid $257,397.40 just for medications so far in 2013. No government would continue to pay 32K a month for my boys' meds.

The company has paid $30,742.79 in medical claims so far in 2013, bringing the total they've paid out to $288,602.09.  We've still got claims pending, so that number will increase!

I'm posting the numbers again because folks on the left continue to respond to my Obamacare claims with one of two responses "she's lying" or "It's corporate greed". Not one has responded when I ask them these two questions: Where was the corporate greed from 2005-2010? What in the law makes the corporate greed worse, if it IS corporate greed causing all of our ills? 

Defund Obamacare Twitter Town Hall -US Congressman Paul Broun, MD

U.S. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10)  announced yesterday that he will be hosting a Twitter Town Hall on Wednesday, September 11th, to discuss defunding Obamacare. 

Participants can track the conversation by following live tweets from @RepPaulBroundMD and tweeting their questions to @RepPaulBrounMD and using the hashtag, #AskDrBroun. The Twitter Town Hall is scheduled from 5:00-6:00 pm and will provide Americans with the opportunity to ask questions or find out more information regarding Dr. Broun’s efforts to defund Obamacare.

I really want to attend this Twitter town hall, but will be out protesting at Richard Burr's office asking the Senator to say NO to bombing Syria.

Kernersville, NC: The Constitution was Upheld! Permit to Protest Appeal-VICTORY!

By now, conservatives across the nation have heard of the "Overpasses to Impeach Obama" movement. The protests are happening on overpasses all across the nation, with the exception of one small town in North Carolina. Back on August 5, 2013 a lady, Janice Carroll, submitted a permit request to protest on the Salisbury Street Bridge and the permit was denied by the Kernersville Police Department. The forms were posted on the town website, but I cannot seem to locate them this morning as I write about the appeal process. Town of Kernersville, NC Website You can read about the snowballing of the movement here: Movement to Impeach Obama Snowballing, in case you were not aware of the size of the movement.

Harvey had his one sign supported by the bridge....the officer is removing it.
Harvey Holding his permits
Harvey, an elderly gentleman in his eighties, went out to the bridge to protest anyway. He received a citation for not having a permit to protest, even though he was alone. Harvey did have a sign tied to the bridge, as well. Officers removed Harvey and his signs. Harvey is in his 80s, going through radiation treatment and has stamina issues because of his current health situation. The pictures here are the photos Harvey took on the bridge. He was alone, and as such, was not required to have a permit. The police said that Harvey was blocking the sidewalk, and if a wheelchair tried to pass, it would not be able to pass. Harvey explained that he would certainly move if anyone tried to pass and could not. I believe the police car is doing more blocking of the roadway and sidewalk than Harvey's chair. This bridge is about a mile and half from my house. It is new and now has a sidewalk. Perfect for exercising our rights upon!

Harvey, had his Constitution and Declaration of Independence. When the officers asked for his permit, he handed them our founding documents. Truth be told, our founding documents say nothing about a permit requirement for exercising our God-given rights protected by the First Amendment.

Last night, the Board of Alderman met and one of the agenda items was "Consideration of an Appeal of a Denied Petition to Protest on the Salisbury Street Bridge". The original request was denied because of safety concerns. Which sounds like they were concerned for the citizens. Trouble is that this is the only city in the entire US to date, that we know of, that has denied an overpass permit. As was argued last night by the Alderman, we cannot pass laws and ordinances based on maybes. In my opinion, billboards, especially the new flashy ones that light up, are more of a distraction. There are no on-ramps at this bridge- drivers drive straight on the highway under the bridge. We have businesses at another bridge who have dancing people and flipping signs- yet they are protected? Our free political speech is more protected than advertizements!
Police removing Harvey's Belongings

There were 7 speakers at the city council meeting last night. I was one of the seven who spoke about the Constitution, the obligation of our elected officials to uphold our founding documents and the rights of We the People.

 We won the appeal with a split vote of 3-2. Dana Caudill Jones, Keith Hooker and Tracey Shifflette voted in our favor and voted to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Neal Stockton and Irving Neal voted in opposition. While I would have preferred a unanimous vote in favor of the people's rights to peaceably assemble and to protest, we won. Those opposed could only say they voted against the people due to safety concerns.

I am thankful for the 3 Aldermen who stood up for the Constitution and our natural rights. The ordinance will be rewritten, and we the people must continue to show up to ensure it is written in a way that protects FREE Speech!

You can see pictures of other Impeach Obama overpasses in our county from local media reports. Protesters Call for Impeachment of Obama Judging from the pictures, our bridge in Kernersville was even safer!

9-11 Protest at Richard Burr's Office

The Senator's staff says that Richard Burr Supports attacking Syria (I called his office this morning)  On the anniversary of 9-11 we want to send the Senator a message to change his stance and to vote NO to the President's request for authorization to use force against Syria.

Both sides in the Syrian civil war are our enemies- Al Qaeda and Hezbollah. To ask any American military member to aid even ONE Al Qaeda terrorist or to help the side fighting alongside Al Qaeda members is unconscionable. Al Qaeda terrorists killed over 3000 Americans on 9-11-2001 - No American should be forced to fight alongside or even push a button to launch a missile for the terrorists who killed Americans on 9-11- and I don't care if there not all Al Qaeda like Hagan's people are trying to say- they are fighting with Al Qaeda, and thus are on the side of those who murdered Americans!

Assad has vowed to retaliate against Israel. If the US attacks- the US will be responsible for every Israeli man, woman or child killed in the aftermath. Obama stands with France. No other nation supports us. Even the Russian President, Putin, realizes aiding enemies who eat the organs of those they kill in battle is insane.

Join us in petitioning Burr to change his stance! He needs to vote NO! America does not go to war simply because the president says we should and not doing anything would make him look like a fool! NO WAR WITH SYRIA!

Date: Wednesday, September 11, 2013

It's Time for Obama to Strap on a Pair

Have you noticed that Barack Obama seems to be the only man on the planet not responsible for anything!? 
The left holds the Pope accountable for every action of every priest whose ever been.... Yet Obama bombs Libya without consulting Congress and it is Bush's fault. Obama says we should attack Syria and it is still Bush's fault. Obama gives a stand down order and lets 4 Americans die and it's Bush's fault. Obama and Holder run guns into Mexico and the guns kill 2 Americans and 300 Mexicans and it's Bush's fault. More people are killed in wars in 4 years under Obama than in the 8 years of Bush, and THAT, too, is Bush's fault. Obama says he knew nothing of the IRS scandals- so no one blames him. The first Bush was blamed for taxes passed by a Democrat controlled Congress.
It's 5 years into Obama's term. He owns the economy. He owns his scandals. He owns the death of Americans under his watch and he certainly, as commander in chief, owns every bomb dropped since the day he took office. Enough blaming Bush. Obama lied about returning our troops home. Obama lied about closing G'itmo. Obama lied about decreasing the scope of govt surveillance. It's time for Obama to strap on a pair and become a man, for crying out loud.
It's enough to make this military vet puke. As the leader of this nation, Mr. President, you ARE responsible for what happens during your watch- the good, the bad and the ugly. You'd know that if you were a real leader. 

Obama is the Laughingstock of the World

We told you so. Obama IS the laughingstock of the world and we told you that this would happen. Even the left in England are mocking him and writing articles about how much better George W. Bush was than the current occupier of the White House. On August 30, 2013 an article titled  Barack Obama is proving an embarrassing amateur on the world stage compared to George W. Bush  made it to the UK Telegraph. If you read the title with a British accent, it is even more funny.

I think it is hilarious that the left, who criticized Sarah Palin's foreign policy skills completely failed to recognize the weaknesses in Barack Obama, community organizer and new senator. We on the right told you he lacked foreign policy skills and it turns out that we were right. His presidency is going to end up being a worse disaster than the presidency of Jimmy Carter. No hostage crisis yet, but more Americans killed in foreign wars in his first 4 years of presidency than in the previous 8 years under Bush. 4 Americans killed in Benghazi, 2 Americans and 300 Mexicans killed with his illegal gun running operation, Fast and Furious. He bombed Libya without consulting Congress and would have bombed Syria on his own without Congress if we the people hadn't been giving him some heat. He's got one nation, France, standing with him. Bush had congressional approval AND a 40 nation coalition.

Senator Obama would impeach President Obama.Read the WND article that includes quote from then Senator Obama here. If Obama were a Republican, the left would be coming unglued adn the Democrats in Congress would have already filed for impeachment after Obama bombed Libya and later left 4 Americans to die in Benghazi. They would have filed for impeachment on Fast and Furious, too. Yet, they claim the right plays partisan politics. That's funny....
