Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

We all know these words. Most people embrace them as a better idea than the current system, which feels to all of us to be based on greed.

Remember the credo of the eighties-“Greed Is Good.”

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

I think we all dream of making the world a better place, right?

I was talking to a co-worker the other day about how unnecessarily complicated our income tax system is, and how much more efficient it would be to make it a flat percent of income. Still unconstitutional, mind you, but more efficient.

She commented how she thought that lower income people should pay less (or nothing), and wealthier people should pay more.

Don’t you think it’s safe to say, that today most Americans echo that sentiment-that we "share the wealth."

Let’s say it another way:

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”

It seems to me that when I listen to many Americans, all they want is for those with more to share it with those with less.

That would be the Christian thing to do, right?

That seems to be the direction Obama is going.

Sounds good, right?

Now I have another question for you.

If I said you espoused Communism, would you take offense?

Most Americans would.

Yet most Americans find those John Lennon lyrics and the quote to be not only acceptable, but a philosophy we should embrace.

And both of them contain the benchmarks of the Communist Manifesto.

Go read the document, Comrade.

Think about it.

Think about why you believe that our way of life is “good” and Communism is “bad.”

For me, one idea comes immediately to mind.

Under Communism, there is a deliberate effort to replace the concept of “God” with the State.

The same would go for Allah, or Yahweh, or Jehova, or Buddha, or whatever you choose to call the higher power you pray to.

Guess what?

This country was founded by Christians who wanted to worship as they saw fit

They would be rolling over in their graves if they saw how we have let a Federal government dictate the way faith is practiced after they shed so much blood to gain that freedom.

But what has the Federal government succeeded in doing? They have convinced the American people that there is a Constitutional concept of “separation of church and state” and then proceeded to use that concept to proceed down the path of replacing “God” with Washington.

Think I’m crazy? I’ll give you one million dollars if you can show me where in the Constitution or the Bill Of Rights the phrase “separation of church and state” is.

You can’t do it.

Because it isn’t there.

The term actually comes from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to Baptists in Danbury, Connecticut:

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.

Clearly, what Jefferson feared was a Federal government telling him how to practice his faith.

What the First Amendment says is that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Yet, by abolishing prayer in schools (and let’s not even start talking about where in the Constitution the authority is granted for the Feds to oversee schools), hasn’t the Federal government done just that-made a law prohibiting the free exercise of religion?

Folks, that amendment was put in there to protect YOU from THEM.

Instead, they have counted on their ability to pull a fast one while we’re all worrying about who gets voted off the island in Survivor and now if you say "Jesus" in public they take you away in handcuffs.

They take away your freedoms.

A little at a time.

And you let them do it.

And you'll never get them back.

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

Other concepts we take for granted that go away if you adopt the John Lennon philosophy would include private property, the right to benefit from your work, and the sovereignty of a nation. These will make their way into future posts, as this one has gotten long enough.

So while you are praising Obama for the hope and the change, just remember to think a little critically of what he is moving us towards, and call it what it is. Communism.

Sorry, all you Beatlemaniacs reading-I’m not saying you have to burn your butcher-block cover of “Yesterday And Today” (although if you want to send it to me, that would be nice), but just because you loved their music does not mean everything John wrote should be considered gospel.

A better lyric may have been:

Imagine all the people
Living life as sheep

We saw some pretty solid proof twenty years ago that Communism does not work.

That’s right, when Buster Douglas beat Mike Tyson!

For the record, I was one of those people who did not know that Lennon (Lenin?) had rewritten the Communist Manifesto and set to music. Thanks to that wacky conspiracy guy for opening my eyes. This one's for him.
For the record, part two-the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 signalling the end of the Soviet empire and the failure of Communism as a way of life. Buster didn't actually upset Tyson until 1990. The Soviet Union didn't officially fail until 1991 when Boris Yetlsin seized power.
Finally, do not drink the Kool-Aid-Obama is pushing Marxism and a new world order and these policies are going to affect YOU!

I’ve said more than once that more people vote for the “American Idol” than vote in political elections.

While I really did not know whether or not that was true, it certainly does make a point as to where America’s priorities lie.

But for the heck of it, I wanted to see what the numbers said.

First, let’s look at vewership for Presidential debates. This is pretty important, right?

According to Hollywood Insider:

McCain-Obama debate-25 million viewers
Palin-Biden debate-35 million voters
Survivor-13 million voters (same week as Palin-Biden debate)

I’m a little surprised-I thought the Survivor viewership was stronger.

The number of viewers who watched the American Idol finale in 2006? 36 million.

And Super Bowl XLIV? 107 million

We don’t know what would have happened had these programs actually been competing for air time, but it certainly seems that vice preseidential debates trump preseidential debates but still cannot compete with the crowning of an Idol!

Contrasting the number of voters for presidential primaries and Amercian Idol is also interesting.

According to USA Today, over 133 million people, or 62.5 percent of eligible voters, voted in the 2008 Presidential election, more than in any other election.

Even more impressive is the fact that the number of votes for president exceeded the 97.5 million votes texted into last season's American Idol.

Sadly, that means that for every four people who voted in the presidential election, three voted for the American Idol. That means it was almost as important to people what questionable talent got a record deal as what questionable intellect ran their country.

As far as I am concerned, there is only one television event more important than deciding the political fate of this great nation.

Women’s beach volleyball!

I keep thinking I’m done posting on this issue, but our Prez just won’t let it go. I know I’m not that smart-is he really that dumb?

He makes it too easy!

By approving Attorney General Eric Holder' lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law, President Obama has set course into a political hurricane.

Mr. Holder filed suit saying the Arizona law preempts federal authority over immigration, although the law itself – which takes effect July 29 – repeatedly cites federal immigration law as its basis.

I wonder if Mr. Holder has gotten around to reading the bill yet? If not, he really must be that dumb!

I’ve said it in every post on this topic- anyone who has read the bill knows, SB1070 adopts the federal law. What federal authority is being preempted?

Although not included as a basis for the federal lawsuit, the main thrust of opposition to the law is that it allows police to ask more questions about people's immigration status based on "reasonable suspicion" that someone is in the country illegally.

Another repeat of a point made in a prior post- the police already have this authority implied. If someone’s rights are violated, either before or after July 29, the same recourses are available to them.

The lawsuit could drive a hard partisan divide into Obama’s immigration reform efforts.
Already, key Republicans such as Arizona’s two Republican US senators John McCain and Jon Kyl, who have supported reform in the past, have peeled off, putting Obama's recent push for comprehensive federal reform – including a partial amnesty for illegal immigrants – into question.

Polls show a vast partisan divide on both the law itself and the federal lawsuit – conservatives generally back Arizona and liberals back the White House. But Gallup reports that 50 percent of Americans overall oppose the Obama administration’s lawsuit and 33 percent support it.

And on the radio the other day, my boys from Philly showed they support it in a rally at Geno's steaks!

Atlanta Democratic consultant Drew Westen, who conducts both bipartisan polling and focus groups, says that while Arizona law supporters on the whole are frustrated with Washington's failure to take more action along the border, they also want some sort of amnesty for those who are already in the country, according to a story in the Arizona Republic.

"The president and the attorney general … are actually right in line with the American people who say that this is not a state issue, this is a federal issue, (and) it needs to be solved by the federal government," said Mr. Westen, author of "The Political Brain: The Role of Emotion in Deciding the Fate of the Nation."

Based on poll figures I have heard quoted, I am not sure I agree with that statement. And selling such a nuanced message in time for the November elections, however, may prove difficult, says former Republican White House staffer Ed Rodgers in a Washington Post reaction piece.

"In politics, a bumper sticker always beats an essay," wrote former Republican White House staffer Ed Rodgers in the Washington Post, "Arizona has a bumper sticker that is compelling and clear. It says, 'Do something about illegal immigration, now!' The Obama administration, on the other hand, offers a long-winded essay that only professors could love."

In a summer where he is losing poll points on virtually every issue, taking on another losing battle may not be the best move for a president who risks losing the House and Senate to the red party come November.
P.S The cheese steak really has nothing to do with the Senate Bill, or Mr. Holder's lawsuit. But there really was a rally from Geno's Steaks in South Philly, which I thought was cool since I spent many a late hour after the bars closed at Geno's (or Pat's
Plus, it does kind of make you hungry, huh?
How's this Mr. Holder? Arizona promises to give a cheese steak to everyone as we racially profile and prior to violating their civil rights. Now will you read the bill and go away?

Article II of the Constitution states that "no person except a natural born citizen . . . shall be eligible to the office of president."

Since President Obama’s campaign began, a growing number of Americans have raised questions regarding Obama’s birthplace and whether he is indeed eligible to serve as President of the United States.

Those citizens have been labeled “birthers” and have been assigned a reputation as looney conspiracy theorists by the mainstream media. I guess by posting this, I am officially in the looney club!

The problem is, there really are a lot of facts flying that, if they are true, would mean our incumbent president is not eligible for the job.

A July 12 cover story on a supermarket tabloid that states, “Obama was not born in the U.S.” brings the issue to a lot more people, and hopefully will make them consider the possibility seriously.

In the article, a former Hawaii records official claims there is absolutely no birth certificate for Barack Obama. The official claims to have had access to Social Security records, drivers’ license, and passport information, and confirmed that there exists no proof that President Obama was born in Honolulu.

The official alleges that upon his request for two different local hospitals to provide Obama’s birth certificate, he was told that no such record exists. The allegation backs up long-standing claims that Obama — who insists he was born in a Honolulu hospital — really took his first breath in Kenya and, as a result, violates the U.S. Consitution’s requirements for the President to be a “natural born” American.

President Obama has not only refused to produce his official birth certificate but has gone to great lengths and expense to seal records from his past. He has named two different hospitals where he was supposed to be born, but his paternal grandmother claims to have witnessed his birth in Kenya (according to various news sites).

The Globe previously published a story that a Kenyan birth certificate revealed that Obama was born at Mombassa’s Coast Provincial General Hospital at 7:24 p.m (where Obama’s grandmother claimed to be present at the time of Obama’s birth).

The White House has reacted to claims disputing Obama’s eligibility by producing a Hawaiin Certificate of Live Birth, though the validity of the document has been called into question by Phillip J. Berg, a former deputy attorney general for Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania Democrat sued Sen. Barack Obama demanding he prove his American citizenship – and therefore qualification to run for president – and claimed to have a recording of a telephone call from the senator's paternal grandmother confirming his birth in Kenya.
"This has been a real sham he's pulled off for the last 20 months," Berg told reports, "I'll release it [the tape] in a day or two, affidavits from her talking to a certain person. I heard the tape. She was speaking [to someone] here in the United States."

The story also crosses military lines, after an Army officer refused to report for military duty until Obama proved his legal citizenship. Since then, however, the officer has waived his preliminary hearing, claiming that the United States Army made it “impossible for me to present a defense.” According to press releases, the officer requested the testimony of the Hawaii Dept. of Health, and all of that agency’s records that exist concerning the president’s birth, and the records relating to Obama’s admission (and financial aid) for the Punahou School, Occidental College, Columbia University and Harvard Law School. All these requests were denied, making it impossible to mount a defense.

If all of the above is true, I’m not sure we really want President Biden to take office.

Something that amazes me is that in addition to the Constitutional requirement that you be a natural born US citizen to hold this office, I thought there was a Federal law that requires that proof of citizenship (or at least eligibility to work in the US) be shown to an employer. I have had to produce my birth certificate three times to my current employer, each time I moved with them. I would think that the Federal government would have a process to verify the candidate’s eligibility to hold the highest office in the land prior to allowing them to campaign. If no such procedure exists, maybe it would be a good idea to implement.

Senator John McCain went through a similar exercise, and he simply produced the document. In his autobiography, "Faith of My Fathers," McCain writes that he was born "in the Canal Zone" at the U.S. Naval Air Station in Coco Solo, which was under the command of his grandfather, John S. McCain Sr. The senator's father, John S. McCain Jr., was an executive officer on a submarine based there. It seems there was some debate whether being born on a naval base counted, but certainly a US military base counts as US soil.

So was Obama born in Kenya, as it is claimed, or Hawaii? If Hawaii, why would the ever elusive birth certificate still be a mystery? I was speaking with my friend KD (he’s another one of us looney people who believe that things ought to be done the right way), and he is certain that Obama is hiding something.

I find it hard to argue, unless Obama is waiting to produce it when it can buy him poll points.

Well now would be that time. He’s fighting a war where a clearly inferior force is holding us off, overseeing an environmental disaster, got the Kenya-born blues and is being made a mockery of by a state governor.

Oh, and that little matter of a disastrous economy with ten percent unemployment and deficits twice as high as in the Bush years.

If Mr. Obama is telling the truth, why continue to lie. Producing an original birth certificate, as opposed to the computer generated one on his site, would discredit everyone and bolster his sagging approval rating.

It seems to me that the only reason not to produce the certificate is, that it does not exist. And that would make Barack something worse than being ineligible to be President.

It would make him a liar.

It would also explain why he’s so opposed to the Arizona Senate Bill 1070.

If his motorcade is pulled over anywhere in the state, he risks being deported!

After campaign lies promising to bring the troops home, our President is following in his predecessor’s boots in trying to build the American empire.

There are those who will call this a war.

I ask you-how can it be a war when we have not declared war on anyone?

There is a reason we have not declared war on anyone-we do not have an enemy.

The war on terrorism is a fallacy. A fib. A scam. A sham. Emporer Obama is lying to you.

Terrorism is not a place, or a people. Terrorism is a strategy, or a tactic. A tactic is a way to fight a war, not the war itself.

So who are we fighting. ?

You may say we are at war with al Queda, but if that’s the case, they have at most, an alleged force of ten thousand.

How is it they are able to fight the most powerfully military force in the world for going on eight years?

Could there be other motivation at work here?

Bruce Springteen wrote a song called "Magic," that was all about the Bush administration’s proficiency at misdirection and deceit.

For some reason, his followers do not want to admit that King Obama is continuing the same web of lies.

This war is being fought against the American people. Look at what rights have been stripped of us during the last eight years.

Do you feel safer?

Is the world any less violent?

Are there more terrorists or less than there were ten years ago?

Is the economy any better?

Can you point to one benefit other than the “Cash For Clunkers,” and before you bring that up, remember that your kids are going to have to foot the bill for that one.

Somehow, this putz (can I call the President a putz or is that breaking the law?) has managed to brainwash half of the country.

No small feat, considering seventy percent of the American Idiots figured Lord Bush out.
Happy Fourth of July. When you hang your flag out, make sure you do it for the right reasons.

Yes, we want to support the troops.

Let’s support them by returning them to their wives and mothers and children.

Write to your congressmen and senators and let them know you’re tired of the military farce.

Bring them home.

I’d say, “impeach Obama,” but then we’d have President about a PUTZ!

Don’t blame me-I voted for Ron Paul.
