Homeless Female Veterans: Most people are not aware that this population exists.

Monday, 10:00 pm EST BettyJean speaks with Jas Boothe the founder and President of Final Salute Inc. about an unspeakable problem!

THE WORD HOMELESS SHOULD NOT BE ASSOCIATED WITH ANY VETERAN.  However, a homeless population of female Veterans exist.

Final Salute Inc. is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization which believes in paying homeless female Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. Final Salute also works with the female Veteran in establishing a plan towards independence.

It is estimated that there are currently 13,000 homeless female Veterans in the United States. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in.

Heroes should not be homeless.  The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless female Veterans with safe and suitable housing.

Of the 500 transitional housing programs for male veterans in the United States, a little over half can accept women. Some female Veterans who have experienced Military Sexual Trauma (MST) may not be comfortable staying in co-ed facilities. There are affordable housing programs and temporary housing units available to all Veterans, but the waiting lists are long and some female Veterans have minor children for which they are responsible; some facilities cannot accommodate children.  Over half of homeless female Veterans are single mothers.

The needs of homeless female Veterans are immediate.  They need your support today! http://www.finalsaluteinc.org

Did Bloomberg order a knock-down of the 911 Rally?

BettyJean Kling

Police lied about numbers at rally…Press too…well we expect it from them, but the police? They must have been given orders to knock down the numbers. Check the photos and ask BettyJean who was in the staging area before it started!

I was there and they were chasing us away – I was moved 7 times! I was moved so far away I had to go around the block and could not get back never heard all the speakers at all they closed access. The truth is they finally refused access to thousands.

I was there at 1:30 before the rally started, I was with several of the speakers in the staging area and had a few words with Pamela Geller before her detail men put me and many of the speakers out of the tent for security reasons and because the staging area was too small to hold us all.

Once placed just outside the staging area the police arrived demanding we leave that area immediately. First they allowed us to step across the road and stand on the curb but another set of police forced us behind the barricades even though we explained we were with the speakers. By that time what seemed like thousands coming in from the ground zero ceremony arrived and the Police went crazy and closed down the sidewalk entirely. They kept shoving us backwards until I, along with many in my group were forced right out of the block. Not being a speaker I just went the way of the crowd but many of the speakers were scattered about.

I tried to re- enter by walking up each block as far back as the eye can see but the streets were full and the crowd was thick. I kept backing out and going another block further away and trying again. The camera cannot show you around corners where I was forced to go only to be out of range of both the camera’s and earshot.

I went from standing next to Pam Geller to not even being in the picture. Don’t let anyone tell you there were 1500! And shame on Geraldo and others for inviting Pamela Geller as a guest draw an audience then not allowing her to have her voice or voice ours!

Police lied about numbers at rally…Press too…well we expect it from them, but the police? They must have been given orders to knock down the numbers. Check the photos. peaks! Historic 911 Rally Draws 40,000

The media pretends these people don’t exist. It’s criminal.

We will be heard. 

  Photo: El Marco

Tens of thousands descended upon Ground Zero today to remember those we lost nine years ago, and to save the American principles of freedom that the sharia tramples.

Crickets are chirping in taqiya media newsrooms nationwide (although they were all there). There has been no coverage.

We organized a rally of remembrance that dwarfed the opposition. If the America haters had 4,000, we had ten times more. The media is playing the dueling rallies; it was no such thing.

Free people came from all over the country and all over the world to stand in solidarity with the 911 families and to declare our iron determination that no victory mosque will be built on their graves. The crowd was young and old, black and white …….. politics of all stripes. The crowd was beautiful. The crowd was proud and good and decent America. All the speakers were excellent. Rousing.

But the highlights included Geert Wilders, who was greeted as the great hero that he is, and spoke about how a sharia mosque at Ground Zero would be the death New York’s proud tradition of Dutch tolerance.

Ambassador John Bolton spoke bluntly and unequivocally via video link about the affront to American values that this mosque would constitute. 

Other powerful voices included Joseph Nassralla, who was the unwilling media darling of our June 6th rally, when a misunderstanding was blown out of proportion by the mainstream media as a racist incident. Joseph Nassralla was the Arab who was supposedly in a confrontation at that rally. At this rally we were proud to feature him, and he was so passionate and rousing in his love for America and fierce denunciation of the thousand-year-old Islamic oppression of the Coptic Christians in Egypt that the crowd went wild as Joseph led them in cheers of God Bless America!

But his warning was clear. The Ground Zero mosque would be the beginning of the end, and Egypt shows where the presence of Islam leads in a free nation.

Steve Malzberg and Mike Gallagher were greeted by huge cheers. It was an historic day in American history. Here is the first of El Marco’s peerless coverage. More pictures and video will be going up continuously. So check back. And El Marco and Pamela Hall will have the definitive post tomorrow (hopefully).

Listen to my friends, the 911 families, Rosa my friend spoke for many and I am so proud of her.

Louisa’s Law will “Stand up to Violence against Women”

BettyJean Kling

We are looking for an attorney to write the language for Louisa’s Law which will require those with the power to do so to “Stand up to Violence against Women”

It’s time to stop slapping the hands of perpetrators of violence against women and children. Let’s hold them fully accountable for their actions. Let’s hold prosecutors feet to the fire – no more plea deals when violence does happen. Let’s hold Judges accountable for sentencing these violators to the fullest extent of the law by handing down stiff sentences.

On the meantime I urge you to join us in calling an end to a proposed plea deal in the case of George Hartwig. Below a sample letter.

September 7, 2010

To: John L. Molinelli
Bergen County Prosecutor
10 Main Street
Hackensack, NJ 07601

State Vs. George Hartwig Re: Louisa Rodas

Dear Prosecutor Molinelli:

My name is Myra Spearman; I am a survivor of domestic violence and the Founder and President of The Weaker Vessel, Inc. We successfully and proactively maintain a database of domestic violence offenders which is viewable by the general public. It is of great importance to us that women and men are able to recognize and stop abuse before it happens to them.

I am writing this letter to you because I am profoundly saddened that there is some discussion of a plea agreement in the case of George Hartwig who savagely beat and disabled Louisa Rodas. I am asking you to proceed to trial and prosecute this case to the fullest extent of the law. It is important that justice be served and that the family of Louisa is able to achieve some measure of closure.

If you merely offer a plea agreement you will allow the possibility for his release into society in the future. Mr. Hartwig has already shown us the consequences of his actions, allowing him to plea will significantly endanger more lives upon his reentry. He has clearly proven himself to be a repeat offender and we cannot allow recidivism to continue. We understand that you’re extremely busy but would implore you to review the case and proceed to trial.

I know you understand fully the extent of what you might allow to happen if you decide to offer a plea. Before you do, think about Louisa and the struggles she has left. She will never be normal again, she’s lost half of her brain, her face and is severely disabled and will need 24 hour care for the rest of her life. Prosecute this case as you would if Louisa were your daughter!

 I, as well as other important women’s rights and advocacy groups will continue to watch this case very closely. It is my sincere hope that you will use your legal expertise to win a conviction in this case.

Sincerely,

Myra Spearman

Great Uterine Wall

Barbara

I have been thinking what’s it going to take for women to comprehend that we are the majority and we are in control of our destiny?

Why do we willingly divide into a minority, a minority that prevents us from moving forward with important issues that affect every female on the planet?

Over 100 years ago Susan B Anthony said and I am paraphrasing, that unless we settle the abortion issue it will continue to divide women.

 In 2010 it is and will continue to be used as a method of “divide and conquer”. I call it the “Great Uterine Wall”

Every election the GUW is erected and women voluntarily divide into Pro and Con and women go to battle with each over what is most definitely  a personal issue and what most definitely should not be a political issue.

Year after year women willingly allow their uterus to be used as a political pawn by allowing it to be the only end all, oh my God  issue that concerns us.

During an election the GUW goes up the right banner reads “They will force all women to have abortions so stick with us we will fight for your right.”

The left reads ” They will force all women to raise children so stick with us we will fight for your right”

So we divide into battle and they conquer and when the election is over the GUW comes down and women stand there and say WTF we are still underpaid, still under employed, domestic violence is escalating with no laws to protect us etc etc etc BUT hey I won the battle I  have the right to raise a child or not.

 Congratulations, all that dividing and battling  and women rights have advanced…NO Where.

When will women say enough of the uterus issue? We have been discussing who owns my uterus and my conscious for a hundred years. It is now official… my uterus and my conscious  belong to me and her uterus and her conscious  belong to her. So let’s stop with the same old same old battle. Let’s take down the GUW so women can all be free to move on together …because.. did you know while we’re  fighting the battle of “who owns my uterus and my conscious”

Women are being  murdered at alarming rates?

“Four women a day are murdered in this country for NO reason. Since we invaded Iraq in March 2003, more than 4,200 American soldiers have been killed. In that same time, there have been NINE THOUSAND woman-lynchings; more than twice as many women slaughtered than US casualties in Iraq.” D. Murphy

http://pumapac.org/forums/woman-lynching/

Do you get it now?

These are the names and the stories of women murdered during and since the 2008 election. 

 What’s that old saying?

“You won the battle BUT you’ve lost the war”

 You still want to divide?

Media asks Women’s Groups: Where are they now?

Another Rant By: BettyJean Kling

Is this guy for REAL?
Has he been under a ROCK?
Has he got some NERVE?
Is Robert Wappman going to hear from US? 

You all remember MonsterRat my second favorite batterer to cover right? Well I just checked and I have 13 pieces on that RAT! 13 pieces… and I am not sure how many newsletters nor do I remember how many times I railed against him on my radio show. I have supported Marcia Pappas in her relentless pursuit of this creep and every press release and every rally she held on the Albany court house steps which means no less than 20 more newsletters about him on her behalf. He has been the most covered of all my batterer issues. So imagine my surprise when Marcia sends me an email this am pointing me to a newspaper article entitled Where Are They NOW?

The writer essentially says women were absent on this case! Is he nuts- he must have been absent for over a year to think so. Here for example is part of his claim:

Domestic violence is not like getting a parking ticket. And, should be taken seriously. Should is the key word. So, where did the state’s and Albany’s so-called leading pro women’s groups stand on this issue? The National Organization for Women (NOW). The New York State League of Women Voters (LWV). The Women’s Bar Association of New York (WBANY). Common Cause. Citizen Action. New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU). All of these groups remained strangely silent during this ordeal.’

The guy needs a lesson on what women really feel about MonsterRat and how vocal we are and have been since 12/19/08. Will you please visit his page and give him a lesson he may never forget? Please?  http://www.examiner.com/x-33513-Albany-Republican-Examiner~y2010m1d23-Where-Are-They-NOW

This is a part of what I told this reporter who said he would do better next time:

What kind of a reporter are you anyway- I search on Google would have found me and all my newsletters about this creep or all my blog pieces! Here let me help you with just a few – Go to my blog and search for these:
1-Oops- I accidentally smashed the glass then slashed her face and dragged her down a hall screaming! January 8, 2009
2-NOW calls for removal of Sen. Monserrate February 2, 2009
3- Yet another lie sealed with a kiss March 27, 2009
4- Why do the women return? March 29, 2009
5- Woman Haters September 19, 2009
6- Monserrate Companion Asserts Cuts Were Accidental October 1, 2009
7- Monserrate Must Go 4 Ever petition October 19, 2009
8- Man vs. Woman: The Grudge Match January 4, 2010
9- Outraged yet? Just where is that tipping point? October 1, 2009
10- HELP send MonsterRat to Jail September 19, 2009

We were also at the court house and held press conferences and we were there every inch of the way. I suggest  it was you – that was not there! How did you miss us? And to ask to avoid the personal attacks  is a rather odd statement considering your question. 

Let me tell you something Rob, my daughter Louisa was shot in the head 4 days earlier – she had half her head and brains blown out- I was on this and other cases as if they were all my daughters.

I took umbrage at the headline “Where are they now?” With a broken heart and tears flowing I went after this bastard- that’s where I was. Can you hear me now?

Invitation to stand with Van Jones

A rant and more than a few tears by: BettyJean Kling

I just got a face book invitation to stand with Van Jones!

I have got to ask you – How on earth does this guy get 100 an hour, 1000 in a half day and in two years I have 200? I am working my ass off fighting for the US Constitution and I have 200 followers on face book and this racist – card carrying communist – fraud is gathering support left and right like he was Obama himself!

These people are racists- Obama sat in a racist church for 20 years and he and his minions knew this guy and many others are racists too that is why they made them Czars. The racist that started this group and the racists joining it are getting away with race baiting, racism and destroying our Constitution and we are doing what?

We are going about our business like nothing is happening are we? Oblivious are we? Am I swinging too far right you say? Maybe you need to open your eyes and ears and take a good look at what is happening right under that nose of your folks!

Van Jones” Only “Suburban White Kids” Shoot up Schools

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO-D-ZeqN5U

 

I musty a one damned fool to break my ass day and night to try to save this country and a few fools just like me are all we got while these damned lunatics are running wild in the streets and the whole damned country is singing their praises. We few must be out of our damned minds wasting precious time and energy for nothing. I might as well give up. Precious few even bother to join my cause or come to the radio show or carry a banner – no wonder the country is going to hell. Women are being slaughtered, the Constitution is being trampled on, the country is going broke, democracy is completely shattered, both parties are corrupt, our young people have lost their minds following hope and change over the edge of reason, and our seniors are all that’s left with any sense at all and Who knows how long before they die out.
 

We are getting exactly what those who refuse to see the truth deserve! Go ahead and sit there and do nothing those of you who can’t be bothered and when America goes down the tubes – it will be your own damned fault because precious few of us worked our asses off. When we begged you to help and you sat there meanwhile Van Jones picked up thousands of supporters in a half of a day. SHAME! Go to the site see for yourself how they are amassing thousands by morning and I have 200 friends after nearly 2 years.
And how many have moved over and joined The Majority United after several weeks since I asked. What- have I asked for dues or something? If I sound angry – it’s because I am and I am scared of what is happening and I am tired and over wrought and over extended and disappointed. Shouldn’t I be?

Basic Info

Name: I Stand With Van Jones!

Category: Common Interest – Politics

Description: Stand with Van — because Van always stands with us!

Vicious attacks from Glenn Beck and other hate-mongers cost Van his job, but they cost the country a great deal more. These attacks were part of a much larger offensive on the politics of hope. While we should not pour gas on the fire by responding in kind, our response must be just as vigorous, just as determined, just as sharp.

Calling out the hatred, naming it for what it is, is the first step. Calling out the real winners and losers is just as important. And above all we need to keep on keepin’ on, calling the rest of the country up onto the high road from where our shared fate and mutual prosperity can be seen.

***

Become a fan of Van Jones, an inspirational leader who consistently finds ways to bridge wedge issues that divide our country, like race.

Communist attacks BettyJean!

Joke of the year by: BettyJean

Well we hit them fair and square and this is their reply- please note in his opening remarks he implied my initials stood for a vile sexual act then he proceeded to explain how stupid I am and how far above me he is. Perhaps you folks might find this interesting and may want to go learn from this fine gentleman all about COMMUNISM and how fun it would be for all us women to belong to his club. I even left all his contact info assuming this would surely inspire you to run right over there to join this lovely gentleman’s cause! Of course I would not waste my time debating this crap anymore than I waste my breath with Obamabots who are what they are what they are and not worth the time to waste – but I did think we would have a great laugh and spend a few comments on my blog laughing this jerk off!!!!!!

I must admit- I laughed my butt off – he isn’t even half as literate as the Obamabots and it’s no wonder they had to rob all the Dem talking points for their website – in hindsight – I can see this is nothing to worry about at all – it’s a bunch of idiots copycatting on a train they think is going somewhere. On their own they have nothing of intelligence to say. After reading what the co-chair sounds like – you can easily see – this is a Mickey Mouse Club org. trying to look like something to worry about.

So relax folks – there are no real boogiemen in this spot just a bunch of foul mouthed idiots looking for attention. Heheheheheheheheheheh.

And Alan, if it makes you feel better – The commies are coming, the commies are coming, the commies are coming, oh oh oh my! We are sooooooo frightened. Here is your headline Communist attacks BettyJean! OK fellas? There – you go. You got you overnight sensation no go crawl back in your little cave and play quietly.

Subject: You obviously don’t even know what a real Communist stands for… Re: Communist Party USA

Hey BJ.
What a name… you must be related to Monica Lewinsky.

You are too chicken shit to debate a real Communist.

Bak. Bak, Baak. Bak. Bak. Bak. Baaaaaaaaaaaak.

You don’t even know what socialism is.

I wonder how many of you get Social Security checks, unemployment checks, Veteran’s health care— real socialized health care, send your children to public schools, get fire and police protection… thank a Communist for all these fine socialized programs… ever borrow a book by Karl Marx from your local Public Library?

Hey Betty Jean, did you ever get free pre-natal health care from your local public health agency— good old socialism in action.

I challenge you to debate the issues of socialism vs capitalism.

I am a Communist and no NO Obama supporter… and, by the way… to show how little you know about the CPUSA…. This Obama supporting “National Board of the CPUSA” is on its way out… Barack Obama is Wall Street’s friend and no friend of working people… he for sure is no socialist or communist as you imply here.

You publish a statement from a “National Board” you don’t even know its members names… talk about your stupidity!

Real Communists do not support Barack Obama or the Democratic Party.

Check out my blog for real Communist views.

Here you are like old Joe McCarthy going goose-stepping backwards in the footsteps of Hitler and Mussolini with your red-baiting and you don’t even have the moral or political courage to bring forward your own agenda for the American people to scrutinize your own fascist views— come on, tell us your solution to the health care mess… what are you going to tell us that you are for “fee for service?” Lol!!!!!!!!! The American people would laugh you right out from under the bed as you look for Communists.

Come on, BJ, tell us about the organization you are associated with— the fascist, racist and anti-Semitic John Birch Society.

Oh, and what “freedoms” are we Communists trying to take away from you? The freedom to be unemployed? The freedom to fight dirty imperialist wars for oil? The freedom not to get health care when sick? The freedom to live in poverty? The freedom to lie about what socialism is?

I have studied the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights and as far as I can see Communists have the same freedom to express their views and run for public office just like anyone else.

I imagine a majority of Americans united for peace and social justice… free from wars and poverty… and free from Wall Street bondage.

Read the books written by Communist writer Howard Fast about the American Revolution… start with “Citizen Tom Paine” and you will learn about real freedom.

N.O.W. or N.O.L.W.?

Dear NOW National,

National Organization for  Women or National Organization for Liberal Women

I want you to see a few emails I received. This is what America’s women look like now- these women marched all over the US for Hillary Clinton with me for nearly 2 years. All but one of these women were Democrats all their lives, but I am ashamed that I feel the need to say that as it really shouldn’t matter should it? After all you are the national organization for ALL  American women not just for left leaning liberal women only?

These women believe in what Hillary said in China women’s rights are human rights. So be they right or left wing – republicans or democrats, we need to stand up and defend women and as the National Organization for Women you damned well need to be heard from or go ahead and change your name to NLOW.

AS a national organization – you need to be our voice and you need to heard from – now is the time – don’t miss this opportunity. Sarah Palin’s daughters 14 or 18 were viciously attacked as was Gov. Palin herself.

1-I had stopped watching his show a long time ago during the 2008 elections. He has truly hit bottom just to appease the current administration. What bothers me more is that more women are not speaking up against this disgraceful and insulting comments relative to women of all ages. Until they do our cause for human rights for women will continue to be hard and long fought. Sadly to say, history is truly repeating itself…

2-I just returned from traveling. I did not hear about this till now. I never listen to letterman. He is a pig and I will write to all the sponsors. Where are the feminist groups?? They: NOW and Feminist majority are busy asking for money for the recent murder of the abortion doctor, since his clinic and other places are closing. They don’t do anything and when something happens they use it to ask for money.

3-Thanks for your outrage and anger.  Hope you are felling better.  Ruthie

 

4- I’d guess that Letterman didn’t intend it as a rape joke, but that doesn’t make it all that much better. What happened to the common decency of to picking on the children on public figures, particularly if the joke is off-color or offensive? He can hate Palin all he likes, that doesn’t justify going after her daughter. Where are MS and NOW now?

 

5- Perhaps the Republicans may be able to reform these Democrats? Your complaints would have much more credibility if you had taken some sort of stand against the Kennedy family for Mary Jo Kopechne’s drowning and the Smith rapes and for Bill Clinton’s sexual predations against Wiley, Jones, and Broderick to name a few women that have been molested by your liberal kennel masters. What the public craves is for you to be more consistent and less hypocritical in the application of your agenda.

 

6-Dear BJ, Thanks for the Travesty of Ethics. And can we defend Palin against Letterman’s egregious comments? Thanks, Nancy

 

7- Betty Jean,
I am sorry but I must say this and hope you will not be offended…but this is how I feel and I am not one to hold back my feelings when it comes to stating the facts as well as the truth.

When they denounce the travesty of the liberal media allowing the attacks on Governor Palin, as well as her children, I will believe that they are truly upset about woman being targets of misogyny and sexism. Until then, they will be nothing but a liberal leaning group that USES woman’s rights as a way to promote their REAL agenda…Liberalism. Conservatives such as myself stood by Hillary and came to her defense when she was assaulted by the radical liberals, I guess that is too much to ask of liberal woman.  Laureen

 

8- Betty Jean, (After the Letterman Post)
Thank you for this post. And I may I say, I owe you an apology.

I am a conservative who was supporting Hillary in her bid for President. I met you in Scranton after I joined the Democrats to fight against the disgraceful sexist attacks she had to endure during her campaign . And I never doubted the fact that you supported woman no matter what their ideology, until today. But with this post… you proved me wrong. Therefore, I owe you an apology. I had sent you this information to post, but I am sure others have as well. Regardless of who you received it from, I thank you for posting it.

With that said, I owed you an apology, but N.O.W….well that is another story. Greta Van Susteren had invited N.O.W. to address this issue on her show tonight… they DECLINED. So I ask, what is the purpose of this organization ? Since I wasn’t a member at the time, I have to ask…Did N.O.W. come to the aide of Hillary during her campaign? Because I don’t seem to recall ANY feminist group trying to help her…Did they? If not ,I have to question what the real mission of this organization is and what it stands for. I mean it is National Organization for Woman … right?

If they did come out to defend Hillary, and have some kind of reasonable excuse for declining an invitation to Greta’s show regarding Governor Palin and her daughter…then I may have egg on my face yet again. But if that is what it takes for me to get woman to start to stand up for each other, no matter what their ideology, well then so be it. I can take being wrong once in a while.

What I cannot take, is the way this Country has made it so acceptable for others to degrade woman and DIVIDE us based on our ideology or beliefs.

I hope that NOW is going to go in FULL attack mode for the comments made by Letterman. I have called the FCC, CBS and all the sponsors that were posted and I will continue to do so. Only I have asked for Letterman to be fired. It only seems fair, since Imus was fired for far less, as well he should have been.

One correction on that list is that Ancestory.com is not a sponsor and had requested we inform those that have this information to correct it and remove their name.

Again, thank you for your support in this matter. I would hope that N.O.W. will chose to do the right thing and stand by ALL woman and make a Public Statement to defend this poor young girl and her mother. And I APPLAUD you for your courage and commitment to ALL woman.  Sincerely,  Laureen

Yes Laureen- The item posted regarding Letterman – I got from you. I certainly do remember you and it was my pleasure meeting and working with you. I will always remember how surprised I was when I found out you were a conservative after having met you after fighting for Hillary’s rights. You bet your boots – you are inspiration to all women who fight for all women. You go girl! It’s women like us we are waiting for. BJ

Lou Pritchett’s Open Letter to President Obama- no hoax

I did not know if thiswas a chain or a hoax but I decided to publish it anyway because one does not have to be a marketing genius or in total agreement on every point to see that on many if not most of these whoever wrote it – is right! This is obviously from a Republican view – so let’s not nit pick – we all know they are just the same bunch of crooks but coming from an opposite angle. I am publishing this to say we are in the same boat with this dictator as with the last – we need to wake up and clean out the House and Senate NOW they are corrupt we are in a broken system- it is up to us to end the madness they will not. We are about to hit the point of no return. Ask anyone who has come here from abroad they can see what we cannot- we are like frogs sitting in a pot coming to a boil- soon we will be cooked.

UPDATE:6/10- http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/youscareme.asp– Lou Pritchett of Proctor and Gamble did pen this Open Letter to President Obama in May 2009 and the NYT refused to print it.

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me. You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others. You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail. You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.     You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world. You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years. 

Our Dear Leader – really knows his health care

Here we go again- from Camp Obama to door to door armies. Is this what we voted for? Do we really want this man’s face on every billboard, in every magazine and his vioce on every channel  both on TV and radio.

Do we need his presence all over the internet  while his army of  young and old are walking door to door over the next eight years indoctinating us to whatever OUR DEAR LEADER  wants us to know? 

Ugggggggggggggg! When does the music get piped into our homes via satelite or will it be implanted via diode to be sure there is never a time that he is out of earshot?

I am for Health Care but the Devil is in the Details and I am against this devil and his way of brainwashing us with his details. I believe he gives us what we think we want— Like the SC three in one now go away.

 WAKE UP!

We need to talk folks—all that glitters is not GOLD

  Friend –Remember this date: Saturday, June 6th, 2009. We will look back on that day as the moment when the fight for real health care reform began in your neighborhood — perhaps even in your own living room.On June 6th, in thousands of homes across the country, we’ll gather to launch our grassroots campaign for health care. We’ll watch a special message from the President. We’ll build the teams and draw up the plans for winning health care reform the same way we won the election: Building support one block, one neighbor, one conversation at a time. And we’ll put those plans into action.

These kickoffs are so crucial that President Obama will join confirmed hosts and attendees on a live conference call.

Sign up today to host or attend a Health Care Organizing Kickoff.

Host a Health Care Organizing Kickoff

There’s no prior experience required. We’ll send you the details for dialing into the President’s call and provide you everything you need to make your meeting a success.

After the election, people gathered at over 9,000 meetings across every state to set priorities for health care reform. Our voices were heard. Now the race is on to make sure Congress produces a plan that reflects the President’s call for reduced costs, guaranteed choice, and quality care for all.

To make that happen, we need to build a groundswell of support in every district and every state, and we have no time to lose. All summer we’ll be reaching out to our neighbors, knocking on doors, serving in our communities, and building a grassroots network strong enough to win.

These gatherings on June 6th are just the beginning of a battle between those who fought and believe in change and those who would protect a broken status quo. The stakes for our country could not be greater.

Some call this strategy pie-in-the-sky. They say we’ll never have enough volunteers to make a real impact; that you need insiders and Washington lobbyists to make a difference. But you and I know firsthand how wrong they are. Starting June 6th, it’s once again time to show this country how bottom-up change is done.

Please sign up today to host or attend a kickoff near you.

These kickoffs will be both effective and fun. You’ll meet likeminded supporters in your neighborhood, share stories, enjoy good company and a shared mission, and know that no matter what this effort requires of us, if we work together we’ll be ready to face it and persevere.

I look forward to joining you and the President to chart our course.

P.S. — This week, President Obama asked us to send in our personal health care stories. Hundreds of thousands of people have already responded, and the stories are simply incredible. Here are just few that help remind us what we’re fighting for:

I am a single parent and have lost my teaching job effective in June. I’m scared to death because my son has a serious pre-existing condition (Neurofibromatosis) and can’t go without medical insurance. However, my employer has just informed me that continuing my family coverage under COBRA will cost $1,400.00 a month! That’s a house payment for me. Or three times my car payment! How can I keep my family covered without going under financially?

Since I lost my job in 2006, I have had no health insurance. After paying for insurance through my employer for 30 years, I have no major medical. But now that I am approaching 60, I may need insurance more than ever. I have not had a mammogram for three years because it would be too stressful to find anything suspicious. Risky but true.

–Kathy

My husband isn’t getting enough hours at his job to qualify for health insurance so we have been looking around for a provider. He has a pre-existing health condition (non-epileptic seizures) and he is being denied left and right. We don’t make a lot of money, about $23,000/year and we can’t afford to not have insurance, in case he needs to go to the doctor. And it looks like we can’t afford to have it either. We are stuck.
