Outrage A Fluke; Hypocrisy Real

Warning: Uncensored Language.

Betty Ann McCaskill, Claire’s Momma, was so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s verbal abuse of Sandra Fluke that she… …she… …asked for money. “Now he’s made me mad!” said she.  So buck up $5.00 and she’ll rid the world of the Republican War On Women.  Republican War On Women?

You mean Bill Maher, the Democrat voter, who called Sarah Palin a cunt and a dumb twat.  Momma McCaskill, will you forward me your letter of outrage when your favorite Liberal misogynist verbally abused a wildly popular Governor.  Are you going to raise money to stop Bill Maher’s Democrat “war on women”?

Or, how about Ed Schultz, the Democrat voter, who called Laura Ingraham a talk slut?  Please forward me your letter of outrage railing against MSNBC and “his out-of-control nasty mouth”.

Here’s the latest Democrat prostitution of a woman to raise money and fortify their power:

Don’t Let Republicans Wage War on Women – Click Here to Contribute [link removed]

Now he’s made me mad.

Rush Limbaugh has never been someone I paid much attention to. But you can’t call my daughter, or any woman, that!

When Rush Limbaugh attacked my daughter and law student Sandra Fluke last week, I saw red. I feel for that young lady’s mother. But I bet she’s proud of her daughter’s willingness to stand up for her rights.

Somebody please send me a link where Rush Limbaugh “attacked my daughter”.  I’ve searched the Interwares and nada example I find.

Can you give $5 to help fight back against Rush and his anti-women assault? [link removed]

I have been working for women’s rights all my life, and brought up my three daughters and a son to believe that every human being deserves respect, dignity, and equality.

And at 83, I can honestly say that I’ve seen real change when it comes to women’s rights. But in the last few weeks it has become obvious that some want to walk back the progress women have made in this country.

Rush Limbaugh and his out-of-control nasty mouth is part of the problem. But it is much bigger than even his mouth.

Please don’t let the Republicans have their

way on this. Don’t let them wage war on women.

Show them that we know how to defeat them by making a contribution to Claire’s campaign today. [link removed]

Nothing will bother this old boys club more than a strong independent thinker like Claire being reelected.

I thought after 40 years of progress this wouldn’t be an issue any more. Unfortunately, it seems that I’ve thought too highly of Republican Party leaders.

Please help Claire put these anti-women Republicans in their place with a $5 contribution:

This is an incredibly important moment for women, and we need you on our side.

Thank you for your continued support of my daughter,

Betty Anne McCaskill

Claire, you and your Momma feign outrage; we know it’s just a fluke.  But, your hypocrisy is fully transparent and real.  Of course, I doubt there’s a Conservative within earshot of the Internet that believes that you actually penned that letter.

Clearly the vile Bill Maher, Ed Schultz and The View, supporters of Democrats, represent the views of Missourians, so we should certainly re-elect you to the Senate.

Taxpayer Funded Contraception

On July 4th 1776 and September 17, 1787, our God-given rights were affirmed, not given by the government, in the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution

Clearly written into that verbiage, according to Barack Obama, liberals, progressives, and feminists, is the right to contraception.  This right. this ‘freedom’, according to Obama and his minions, includes the right to have that contraception paid for by taxpayers under threat of imprisonment by the Federal Government.

Nathan Hale clearly said, “”I only regret that I have but one life to give for my contraceptive.”

So, my question, why is it only in the 21st century that we see the feminists and Obama asserting this right?  All the way back in the 15th Century (that’s the 1400’s for the Occupy crowd), man (or woman) had invented contraception.  So, it was certainly available in 1776 and 1787.

h/t wikipediaWhy oh why, at the founding of our great country, weren’t they handing out government funded Chastity Belts on every corner and in every church?  Why weren’t women demanding their right to a Chastity Belt as a means to prevent pregnancy and demanding that the taxpayers fund it?  Why weren’t they screaming for their rights to be protected from pregnancy by the contraception of the day?

Why? Because the idea that the Constitution (and freedom no less) enshrined a right to taxpayer funded contraception is just as ludicrous as expecting the government to hand out Chastity Belts.

Only fools, proponents of the nanny state, and opponents of freedom believe that such rights exist in the Constitution.

People like Sandra Fluke and her ilk, who cannot take responsibility for their own purchase of contraception, have a God-given form of contraception.  It’s called keeping your knees firmly together.

There is nowhere in the US Constitution that says Sandra Fluke has the right to enslave me into working part of my day to pay for her contraception.  Her God-given natural born rights end where they start to affect me.

Your Testimony Needed!
Dear Brian,
Obamcare Nullification Bill

The most important bill of the MO legislative session will have a hearing Tuesday and we want hundreds of citizens to weigh in.

HB 1534 (Rep. Kurt Bahr) is Missouri’s declaration that Obamacare – all of it, not just the individual mandate – is unconstitutional, and that the federal government has no authority to take over control of 1/6 of the economy, and that we will not allow it to be enforced in our state!

This is a companion bill to the Health Care Freedom Act. HB 1534 is the “teeth”, complete with penalties for any federal bureaucrats who come to Missouri and attempt to force Obamacre on us. This hearing is our opportunity to tell the Missouri General Assembly that we expect them to interpose on our behalf and stand in the gap between us and a federal government that is out of control.

Two Bills Gut the Citizens Initiative (petition) Process:
Oppose Them!

The single most important concept in a Constitutional Republic is the principle expressed in the Missouri Constitution in Article I, Section 1: That all political power is vested in and derived from the people; that all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole.

The people must maintain their “check” on government – that’s what the right to keep and bear arms is ultimately about! And so we don’t have to resort to violence to protect our liberty, we have the right to vote.

Sometimes voting the bums out just doesn’t work. Too often the old bums are replaced by new bums.

So besides the right to keep and bear arms, the people of Missouri have reserved for themselves another “check” on government – that is, the power to reject or enact laws or constitutional amendments independent of the people controlling government.

Missouri Constitution, Article III Section 49: The people reserve power to propose and enact or reject laws and amendments to the constitution by the initiative, independent of the general assembly, and also reserve power to approve or reject by referendum any act of the general assembly, except as hereinafter provided.

As an example of the importance of this power, note that when the Ohio legislature failed to step up to the plate, average citizens put their anti-Obamacare measure on the ballot with a petition. Like our Prop C, it passed with huge margins.

SB 817 (Parson) and HB 1869 (Dugger) will significantly hamstring the citizen’s initiative petition process. The irony is, these bills will hurt grass-roots citizen petitions but do very little to curtail the big money special interest initiatives the sponsors claim they are concerned about.

Perhaps the most onerous aspect of these bills is a new procedure that will take away at least two months, and as much as three months, from the time allowed to collect signatures. Considering that litigation can already eat up almost all the available time, the loss of these months can effectively strip the people of the very power they have reserved for themselves.

Please fill out a witness form for BOTH the Senate and House bills. Tell the legislature to keep their mitts off our rights!

How About 10 Years?

Senator Crowell makes the excellent point that we need to keep the revolving door between the Missouri Legislature and the Lobby Hiring Office locked tight.  But, it seems to me, with the Billions of Dollars being spent on lobbying, that it would be chump change for a Business / Union / Group to keep a former Legislator on the payroll for two years.

To cleanly close the door between Lobbying and Legislating, the number of years between the two jobs should be at least 10.  Citizen-Legislators should have plenty of time being a Citizen before going back to lobbying the General Assembly.

But, this is a good start:

Pass Ethics Reform Now

Holding Politicians Accountable

Politicians work for you, to represent your interests, not their own.  But far too often a few politicians use their position to be self-serving and forget to make decisions based on what is best for you.  The special session this past fall put on full display how lobbyists and special interests, through campaign donations, are controlling politicians more and more.  In my opinion, two key bills need to be passed in order to stop this abuse and make politicians more accountable to you, the voter.

h/t senate.mo.govMissouri had an ethics law passed in 2010, but, this past month, the Missouri Supreme Court struck it down because of the process by which it was passed.  Among the key provisions in the bill struck down was banning the laundering of donations through campaign committees, publicly reporting contributions of $500 or more within 48 hours of receiving them, and important enforcement abilities for the Missouri Ethics Commission to ensure politicians comply with all campaign finance rules.

The court’s ruling makes it imperative that the General Assembly acts quickly to ensure campaign donations are transparent.  Senate Bill 826 contains the exact same ethics provisions passed in 2010 minus the issues the Missouri Supreme Court said made the bill unconstitutional.  By passing this bill, campaign contributions would be made in the open so Missouri voters are able to hold politicians accountable for the campaign contributions they receive.

In like manner, when voters approved term limits, they made it clear that they did not want legislators making a career out of their service at the Capitol.  Each legislator has the honor to serve as a citizen-legislator for their district; however, the current system provides some legislators with the opportunity to land high-paying jobs as soon as their term is complete.  The General Assembly should not be a revolving door between public service and lobbying.  This has the potential to lead to a conflict of interest as the governor or special interests may trade these high-paying jobs for votes.

Senate Bill 851 would prevent legislators from being able to take a job as a lobbyist or in the executive branch for two years after they leave office.  This provides an important cooling off period between the time a person serves in the Legislature and the time they take a high six-figure job lobbying their former colleagues.  It also ensures that during their time in the General Assembly, legislators are serving your best interest, not trading their actions for future employment.  If you are going to be the boss of the politicians, instead of the special interests, now is the time to enact these key ethics reforms.

Holding office should be an act of public service and not a springboard to lining one’s own pockets.  As lawmakers, we are entrusted to make the best decisions for you and must be focused on doing what is right, not on who has contributed money or promised a future high paying job.  If you are to have confidence in your elected officials then it is time to pass these two bills.

Cape Girardeau Citizens Police Academy

From the Southeast Missourian:

The Cape Girardeau Police Department would like to train residents in the various facets of law enforcement, but only if enough people want to learn.

The Cape Girardeau Citizens Police Academy is slated to begin March 13, but the department is still shy of the 10 applicants needed, said Cpl. Ike Hammonds, who runs the academy. Applications for the academy are due Thursday, and the department has only received two.

“We offer this every year, but we don’t always get enough applicants for it,” Hammonds said. “There’s no rhyme or reason to it.”

Since 1998, the department has put on 10 police academies. It did not hold one last year because it did not have enough applicants, Hammonds said. Applicants must pass a background check.

Andrew Breitbart

It is with a heavy heart and sorrow that we receive the news the death of Andrew Breitbart.  Breitbart, a mere 43 years old, was a passionate vanguard for truth, conservatism, libertarianism and the Tea Party.

From Wikipedia…

  • Breitbart often appeared as a speaker at Tea Party movement events across the U.S. For example, Breitbart was a keynote speaker at the first National Tea Party Convention at Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville on February 6, 2010.[20]
  • Breitbart launched a number of websites, including Breitbart.com,[24] BigHollywood.com,[25] BigGovernment.com,[26] BigJournalism.com,[27] and BigPeace.com.[28]
  • Breitbart was married to Susannah Bean, the daughter of actor Orson Bean, and had four children

I had the occasion to discuss baseball with Breitbart at Mike Shannon’s restaurant last summer during the Smart Girls Summit.  He told me,  “…baseball is the only TV I watch.”  He watched any game he could get his eyes on… …not just his favorites.  “Otherwise, TV is a waste.”  Unfortunately, the name of his favorite team escapes me.

Brietbart will be sorely missed in our movement, and his passing will become a clarion call for us to step up and fill the void left by his absence.

Today we pray for his wife, children, friends, and family.

God Bless.
