Fiscal Responsibility
President Barack Obama held a “Fiscal Responsibility Summit” on Monday. This meeting was nothing more them a group hug, and rationalization among Congressional Democrats after the recent passing of the stimulus package. After an actual inheritance of 400 billion dollar debt (not the 1 ½ trillion Obama claims), the increase of 1.3 trillion dollar spending package, and the President claims he will reduce the debt by half in his first term? Why did he spend it to begin with then? If he doubles the debt then promises to reduce it by half, wouldn’t he just be reducing it by the amount he spent? To spend the money then to make claim to reducing it in 4 years is absolutely ludicrous, he’s talking from both sides of his head!

Senators Cardin and Mikulski
In a recent local TV ad have claimed to have insured 11 million previously uninsured children. The ad goes on to encourage you to call and personally thank them for their actions. The ad then goes on to say that this will contribute to more affordable health insurance in the future. How exactly does a demand to insure previously uninsured children affect my ability to get more affordable health insurance? Who do the two senators thinks pay for the 11 million kids?…… More democratic double speak to hide the impending socialized medicine.

Mexico update
As I reported earlier, Mexico will be our newest security issue of the future. The mayor of Juarez, Mexico has moved his family to El Paso, Texas in fear for their lives. The chief of police in Juarez has quit! The threat is real, the concern should be ours. Mexico has criticized our country and policies, but is unable to calm violence and illegal exit from their country. President Obama had better fund extra security on our southern border, or risk increased crime in our country. On Wednesday the government revealed a new infra-red technology to catch Mexican illegals trying to cross the border. Have we ever had problems catching them? The biggest problem we have with Mexican-American borders is the “catch and release” mindset. Let’s enforce the laws we have and clamp down on the law. The leading city in the world right now for kidnapping is Mexico City, the second is Phoenix, Arizona!…..wake up America, time to shut down the borders!

Oh there ya go again Joe
Vice President Joe Biden is going to be handed the job of handling the transparency and accountability of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This is pretty funny to put Joe in charge of that, he’s certainly never been known as a “watchdog” of anything, let alone his propensity to foot in mouth disease. Wasn’t it President Obama who offered any law to the American Public for 5 days to “inspect” before signing it into law? Maybe Joe will castigate Barack and hold his feet to the fire on that one……but we aren’t a nation of torture anymore…..yea suuuuuuuuure he will!!!!!! “Nobody messes with Joe!”

Call them what you wish, earmarks, pork-barrel, pay offs to states, President Obama has claimed he will reduce earmarks after his American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. After? What exactly was included in that program? PORK,PORK,PORK!!!! Senator Schummer told Congress that people don’t care about earmarks. Who is right? Who is the boss? The better question still is ……….let’s DEFINE earmarks first, then work to eliminate them. Obviously Obama doesn’t see any in the ARRA of 2009, so what are they then Mr. President, and why were they funded, but the military “reinvestment” amendment turned down? Just 24 hours after claiming to eliminate earmarks the house introduced the Omnibus Appropriation including yet MORE earmarks, 8600 of them to be exact to the tune of $8 billion, when will the President return these pork-laden bills back to the originators to eliminate this junk?

Homeland Security Chief
Secretary Napolitano saw fit to avoid the words “terror” and “9/11” in her first testimony to congress, one has to wonder why. Why would those words be absent from the Homeland Security chief? Homeland Security was formed in the shadow of 9/11, because of an attack by terrorists. My $64,000 question would be, who said these words wouldn’t be spoken? Was it her choice and hers alone, or did it come from a higher source and why? If they were hers then she doesn’t deserve her post……..if it was Obama……well I repeat myself.

The Great Society
Not since the reign of LBJ have we seen such a spend fest of working citizens funds to benefit those in the country of non-producers. We have returned to the ideology of supporting the non-producers and raising the bar, without actually defining the ones that need to donate to the cause. We have become a society that punishes the successful and rewards the non-working or illegal class. What is the incentive to succeed? The government wants to regulate “success,” they want to control the amount of money the private sector makes. They want to control perks of publicly owned companies. They want to control the very products they make and sell. The trouble with this line of thinking is, who draws the line? Who decides who benefits and who decides who pays?

Are We Waking Up?

Are We Waking Up?
By: Kevin Bryant

More often than not, we buy a pair of shoes and shortly after the newness goes away, so does the comfort. We buy a new mattress and it feels great and we sleep great, but soon our sleep patterns return to what they were before. We buy a new car and the that new car smell is great, but soon it fades and no matter what we do, we can’t get that smell back to the way it was.

Last November, America elected a new President. In office now for just over a month, is the newness already wearing off? Could it be that America is starting to see that President Obama is as far to the left as conservatives said and warned people that he was?

Though I didn’t think it was possible, but in the Democratic Primary Debates, President Obama was more to the left of Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and every other candidate, except the munchkin man, Dennis Kucinich. During the debates against John McCain, we saw a totally different President Obama. We saw a candidate that spoke like a moderate democrat and gave America the impression that he would govern from the center of the political spectrum. What a total crock of crap that impression turned out to be, but with the help of mainstream media, he did manage to fool enough people into believing it that he got himself elected.

Is it possible that America is finally starting to wake up?

I don’t put much faith in polls except for the Rasmussen Polls, but to be “fair & balanced”; I took the numbers from two independent polls (Rasmussen & Gallup) and threw in the CNN & Fox polls so that it would be fair. What do the polls say about the Messiah?

Gallup poll of 01/21 – 01/23 had Obama’s approval rating at 68% and disapproval rating at 12%. Rasmussen 01/25 – 01/27 had 62% and 36%. Fox’s numbers were 65% & 16% on 01/27 – 01/28, while CNN’s 02/07 – 02/08 numbers were 76% & 23% respectfully. I really don’t care much about the approval versus disapproval numbers as much as I do the difference between the two. On average, 46% more Americans believed that Obama was doing a good job than disapproved of the job he was doing.

The latest polls taken between 02/17 & 02/22 show something different. Gallup is now 62% & 25%, Rasmussen shows 58% & 40% while Fox has the numbers at 60% & 26% and lastly CNN comes in with 67% & 29% respectively. So, on average over the past 4 weeks, Obama’s approval rating has slipped 6% while is disapproval rating has climbed 8.25%. Here is the number I look at though, the difference between those that approve versus disapprove of the job he is doing has slipped 14.25 points to 31.75%.

At this pace, his numbers will be comparable to those of congress by Thanksgiving. 2 turkeys in the White House for Thanksgiving, one on the table surrounded by stuffing and cranberry sauce while the other will be sitting at the head of the table.

Open Letter to Eric Holder

Open Letter to Eric Holder
By Al Ritter

This weekend I have found myself boiling inside about Eric Holder’s comment this week about how people in America are cowards. Maybe his choice of words were harsh, maybe they were purposely placed. I did some research on Eric Holder, and found some interesting facts.

The first thing I found was Eric’s father was from Barbados, and his mother’s parents were also from Barbados, so the best he can label himself is a “man of color.” He isn’t African-American.

Although he grew up in East Elmhurst, Queens, NY, and came from a family of modest means, it was his scholastic ability that led him to his law degree, and final ascension to his job at the Justice Department.

His appointments to civil service started with Ronald Reagan, and followed every President except George H.W. Bush from what information I have been able to collect.

I have a few problems with his speech, number one is…..does he label the Americans who are cowards…. “white America?” Number two is, does he consider himself one of the people that “white America” won’t socialize with? Number three is, the self- segregation comment aimed at “white America?”

My next problem revolves around the “self appointed” spokesmen of the “black race” that hide behind the guise of being ministers. I speak of Reverends Jackson and Sharpton, professional race baiters who still don’t have a church, but are never at a shortage for opinions. They travel the country in search of a new controversy to label it “racist” whether the name fits or not. Thirty years of this treatment and the white population has a right to be shell shocked to start a conversation about race with ANYONE let alone an African-American.

If he labeled the white population as being the cowards in America, he practices his own form of discrimination. Sure there are radical mouthpieces in both races, but the ones that are given a pulpit are the ones to blame for the lack of conversation.

He speaks of self-segregation as if it’s just a white thing. Well Mr. Holder it isn’t! Blacks stay in their own groups as much as whites do. To label it as discrimination IS discrimination; it labels things as being racist, when just maybe they aren’t. When America was in its heyday of LEGAL Immigration, Germans, Irish, Italians, etc. lived in communities where they felt most comfortable. They related better to people with customs, and cultures just like them!

Look at any TV show today, and you will see stereotypes in all races. For better or worse, they are usually characterizations far more along the lines of caricatures of a race. Of course a lot of what shows is an exaggeration, but the basis of the ideas are generally accurate.

I guess what I’m saying Mr. Holder is, self-segregation is exactly what it says it is, it happens in “black America,” it happens in “white America.” Past history of race baiters has made “white America,” more careful of what they say and to whom, and “black America,” has almost never been labeled as making racists comments. Why do you suppose that is?

Your comments made in the Justice Department speech have no place in any speech as Attorney General of the United States of America. You have abused the office to which you were named, not to mention the audacity of your comments after being named the first “black” Attorney General on the coat tails of the first “black” President of the United States of America. How can you say with a straight face that “blacks are treated with inequality when Barack Obama obtained the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King professed…..he said he longed for the day where a black man could be judged for the content of his character rather then the color of his skin……. “Hope and Change” doesn’t equal character, two years as a US Senator doesn’t equal character, which leaves the color of his skin………..but I’ll be labeled as a racist now, because I have expressed my opinion, so Mr. Holder, it’s your turn.

Show us the money!

Show us the money!

Chicago’s Mayor Daley wants his money, and he wants it now. The DNC says they are checking bills before paying them, but it’s been a month and Chicago wants to be paid. Much like other cities and groups, Obama has run up bills from his recent coronation.

Chicago even though they are a majority of democrats, they still have bills mounting to just over 1 million dollars, and with budget deficits being what they are, they want to be paid. Obviously all is fair in love and debts, as the state of Maryland is still owed 11 million.

Chicago’s victory celebration pales by comparison to the debt Maryland has incurred. Governor Martin O’Malley has been mysteriously quiet about the Obama bill in fear that his requests for “stimulus money” will be in jeopardy.

Hoping the citizens of Maryland won’t notice his obvious ignoring of the debt, the Mayor of Chicago has called Obama and the DNC to task, I’m wondering when Governor Martin O’Malley will………(note to Martin) …….most of the president’s
cabinet has been spoken for!

Whitman wants to run for Governor of California?
I must admit I couldn’t stop laughing about Meg Whitman expressing her interest in running for Governor of the state of California. Governor Schwarzenegger hasn’t handled the state’s economy badly enough? Let’s hand the reigns over to the past CEO of Ebay, whose poor customer relations is rage of talking points on the internet now. I’m not sure (nor do I care, which party she would be running under), but I’m sure her leadership skills would rival the Republican or as Rush Limbaugh would consider a RINO, (republican in name only), I prefer to call them Republicans in drag……or as Arnold would say……girlie men.

Hugo Chavez
Won his referendum on Monday to allow “indefinite rule.” This was one more step in the transformation from socialistic rule to dictatorship/communistic leadership. This referendum will affect all politicians in leadership roles, and not just Chavez himself. Chavez has already aligned himself with Iran, and has been accused of spewing anti-Israel rhetoric, who could ask for more, no term limits……….maybe a new Hitler is about to be born.

Soviets in Afghanistan
Monday soldiers who fought in Afghanistan some 20 years ago gathered to remember the conflict. Some 100,000 troops fought in the 9year war. They claimed they weren’t proud, they weren’t ashamed, but it just signified a landmark in their military history. One soldier said……. “they can’t be beaten, if President Obama was smart he’d move troops out before it becomes the same quagmire for him that it was for us.”

Rahm Emanuel
It seems the White House Chief of Staff might be the next one to pay some back taxes. It seems he stayed rent free in a Washington town house for the last 5 years. Emanuel explains it as “hospitality for a colleague”, and therefore never reported it on his financial forms. This is but yet another democrat that doesn’t pay his “fair share”, and as Joe Biden has said………that makes him unpatriotic!

A Full 8 Ounces

A Full 8 Ounces
By: Kevin Bryant

I pledge allegiance to the man
And not to the flag of America
And to the socialist state
For which he builds
One party rule
Under Obama
All empowered
With no liberties or justice for any

Before this so called stimulus package was ever passed, VP Joe Biden stated that there was a 30% chance they would get it wrong. Before President Obama signed this bill into law, there were hints of Stimulus II already making its way around certain circles. Almost immediately after signing this bill into law, President Obama stated that the idea of a second package was not off the table.

We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism. - Nikita Khrushchev

My first permanent assignment in the navy was a supply ship that carried a crew of roughly 270 officers and enlisted. Having spent 45 months on there, you pretty much get to know everyone. One day I was out walking around the flight deck just getting some air and a cook that slept two rows over from me came out about the same time. We walked around the mini flight deck shooting the breeze and he made a comment about me giving him a ration of “crap”. I asked him how much “crap” it takes to make a ration and he stated that the navy manual says it’s a full 8 ounces.

Ladies and Gentlemen, since January 2001 and the end of the Reagan Republican era, we have been receiving those small doses of socialism from our U.S. Congress. Since January 2007, we have been getting our full helpings of socialism from Congress. Since January 2009, it just continually flows with as much volume as water flowing from the Mississippi River.

We hear from The Big Three: Obama, Pelosi & Reid, the words security and comfort used in every speech they make. We hear how the government is going to provide that for us. I never remember my grandparents or even my parents using those words when talking about the government. I never once heard them say that they demanded or even wanted those things from the government. They grew up in a time where personal responsibility was taught both at home and in school. They were taught that we are what we make of ourselves.

There are several variations of a quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin. The quote is something like “He who would surrender a little freedom for security deserves neither and will lose both”. I think those words speak more truth now than at any other time in our nations history except maybe during the time of the Revolutionary War.

These are dangerous times. We are being lead by our government in a direction that has never before been seen in our 230 plus year history. The road that we are traveling is paved with uncertainty and is littered with tried and failed policies. A Stimulus II package would most certainly contain elements that would further diminish our freedoms beyond the current package and done so in the name of security.

Congress and President Bush knew that most of America did not want the bank bailout. This congress and President Obama knew that most Americans did not want this stimulus package passed. America was ignored both times. If conservatives do not now stand up and voice in unison our disgust with this congress and administration on how they ignore us, if we do not raise our voices to be heard over the loads of “crap” that the Big Three spew out on a daily basis, if we don’t put every effort into the defeat of those in both houses of congress who’s ears tune out our words, then conservatism, freedom, liberty and free enterprise loses and is likely never to recover from the blows they have been dealt over the years and especially the past 6 months.

The Fairness Doctrine is anything but….

The Democrats own the House, the Senate, the White House, and now they want to own “talk radio.” They don’t wish to challenge the media in general, just the talk radio segment.

This is one of the remaining strongholds for conservatives, and they don’t want to see it remain for long. Liberal talk radio has been tried, but it failed plain and simple. If it was popular don’t you think it would still be in the market place?

I say if the Democrats want a fairness doctrine of sorts, let it include the main stream left media also, TV, cable, newspapers. If it can’t include those medias it isn’t “fair” is it?

Obviously Rush Limbaugh gets under Obama’s skin, but Barack has wasted effort trying to paint him as the face of conservatives. That is just as funny as painting Keith Olbermann as the face of liberals.

The Democrats don’t want to hear a dissenting voice anywhere, not in congress, not in the White House, not in the news media, and now not in talk radio. Absolute power leads to dictatorship, and this is the aim of the new liberals. They berate anyone or thing that doesn’t believe in the greater good of the “party line.” They practice hypocrisy in its truest form with the latest cabinet appointments of the Obama Administration.

This absolute power is entering a zone of no return. Obama ran his campaign on two basic things, first and foremost was the removal of troops from Iraq, and second he ran on the idea of fixing the economy. He is now moving troops to fight a war in Afghanistan, a war that the Soviets couldn’t win in 9 years. He has expanded National Debt to figures unheard of in modern times, caused by policies instituted by his party in 1977, that lead to a falsely inflated housing market pushed by ACORN, until the bubble burst some 30 years later.

I mention these things because the time has come to stop the continued trend. It is time for at least a second voice to be heard. Two heads have always been better then one, and for certain two parties are better then one. Our country has always been about compromise, and this should be no exception. We voted in a President, and the majority of the country has spoken. But remember this was an inauguration and not a coronation, his power is limited, his actions are that of a man, a man who will make mistakes, a human…………….not a deity.

State of the Union: January 2013

State of the Union: January 2013
By: Kevin Bryant

Greetings Comrades, Fellow Party Members and Citizens of the State

As of this morning, I no longer stand before you as your President. I now stand before you as Premier Barack Hussein Obama.

Tonight I will deliver the greatest and most historical of all State of the Union addresses to have ever been given inside this historical chamber. I confidently say to you, the citizens of the state, that this night will be the crowning moment in the history of our nation.

The transformation of our nation is now complete. We are longer be looked down upon by our earthly brothers for now we are all equals. The world no longer sees us as a threat to peace. The world no longer views us as a “do as we please” nation. Tonight, I say to you, we have finalized our transition from a country without morals or clarity to a country of the world. We shares in a united hope and prosperous future with the rest of our Muslim and Atheist, Hindu and Christian brothers and sisters throughout the world.

What started 4 years ago as the appearance of a simple yet necessary economical stimulus package has now grown into the greatest of all pieces of legislation ever to be passed by those great patriots of the party here in these very halls. It began with the centralization of the financial institutions, then the health care industry fell under federal control and together, we have progressed and advanced the Union of the Socialist State of Amerika into a model of government for the rest of the world to emulate. With our help, the United Nations will finally become the world’s governing body that our great leaders of the past: Stalin, FDR, Castro, Johnson, Carter, Chavez and Clinton envisioned it to be, and will become the guiding force to lead all the nations of the world towards everlasting peace and universal harmony

No longer do we have the need to pour countless millions of dollars into such things as national elections, large standing military and senseless state governments. This great house, which is truly loyal to the state, has shown great resolve in determining what is best for the citizens of this great nation. They have appointed terrific czars for each of the former states who in turn have appointed the members of this loyal and most honorable house. They have stood unified in their convictions to do what is right for the state and to elect me Premier of the USSA for life.

This nation has prospered greatly over the years since we pledged our support to Iran and the rest of the Muslim world in it’s jihad against the evil and illegal state of Israel and wiping it from the face of the earth. We have been blessed by the Muslim world and now exist in a world of peace since adopting the Muslim teachings and coupling them with Hindu like inner peace. We have re-written our constitution to allow for the funding of such teachings and the world has stood as one in rejoicing our conversion.

We are a safer and more secure nation now as we have removed all weapons from the homes of ordinary citizen. We have learned that with implementing Sharia Law, we can deter all lawlessness, removing any and all needs for gun ownership.

With the creation of the National State News, we are now able to better inform our citizens. We now have the power to keep you informed of all the sweeping changes you voted for when you elected me to office a mere 4 years ago.

With our prosperity, we have been able to relax the 100% tax of income over $25,000 and reduced it to 86% so that you are able to afford a better life for your family. As our party and country continue to prosper, so will our citizens.

In 2008, you, Amerika, voted for change you could believe in and count on. I have delivered on that promise. The party has corrected the wrongs of the past 230 years. We have brought our way of thinking out of the dark ages and into the 21st century. We have corrected the mistake of the idea of a government of the people by the people and for the people and replaced that with people for the government and by the government, all working towards the common good.

Because of the change you have asked for, we have given you equality though the equal pay program based on our job rating scale. Through the federalization of the stock market and private business sector, fancy job titles no longer mean anything. If you sweep a floor, you have the security of knowing that the person in the building beside you makes the same money for the same job. When you go to the grocery store, all products cost the same regardless of where you shop.

Because of the change you wanted, you now have the luxury of knowing that you have a stable and permanent government that you can look to correct any wrong, resolve any dispute, protect you from harm and alleviate the stress of all those decisions you formerly had to make for yourselves. The party is here to ensure that you have medical coverage and approved schools to educate your children all at no expense to you.

Now that, my fellow citizens, is real change.

Allah has blessed me and my family because we follow his strict code. Follow the path and Allah will bless you too. And may Allah continue to bless the Union of the Socialist State of Amerika.

The Wicked Witch of the Midwest loses her position

According the Chicago Tribune, Michelle Obama’s position at University of Chicago Medical Center, has been eliminated due to “budget cuts.”

One can’t help but to wonder why they eliminated that position. Was it because of the actual cut backs, or was it because Roland Burris the “new junior senator” of Illinois doesn’t have a wife to fit into Michelle’s position? Maybe, just maybe it was the fact that the position was created just for Obama’s wife to offer a vehicle to pay back Barack for his pork barrel that filtered it’s way to the University of Chicago?

Since Barack is no longer in a position to help them the position dried up! Just how does a position that paid $300,000 a year on a part time basis just dry up?

Of course it might have been a title only, but then we already know that Michelle Obama “works twice as hard as the average American, to get the same pay.”

After seeing what Bill Clinton’s first lady got herself into, one can only begin to guess the trouble that will be stirred by the new resident of the White House, or will she get a “real job?”

She will probably have to get at least another “part time” job to pay for those nasty bills for piano lessons and summer camp, not to mention the private school the girls attend at the price of $28,000 per year, but we all have these problems don’t we?,0,5270924.story

An increasing presence in Afghanistan
As President Obama decreases military presence in Iraq, and moves forces to Afghanistan, it will require routes over Soviet airspace and landmasses. One has to wonder what concessions we will be making to then with an increase of Soviet-US conflict. When the Soviets entered Afghanistan in 1989, Zbigniew Brzezinski remarked to then President Carter “we have now handed the Soviets their ‘Vietnam.” It sure is reassuring to know that we have now assumed the same role, obviously Obama hasn’t studied much history. Nine years, and the Soviets couldn’t defeat them, maybe we can borrow more money from China to defeat them!

Venezuela referendum vote
On Feb 15th Venezuela will vote to accept or deny Hugo Chavez’s move to allow indefinite re-elections. As of this past week massive protests have cropped up hoping to “put the genie back in the bottle” so to speak, and turn down his bid for dictatorship.

Robert F Kennedy Jr.
The Katherine Hepburn voice double has now stated in front of a congressional committee that he thinks the Hog farmers in the US pose more of a threat then Osama Bin Laden. Rambling on in circles about pollution as he always does, he claimed that we are far more likely so suffer from pollutants then from terror in general. His diatribes make even Al Gore look sane by comparison.

If Sarah Palin
If Sarah Palin was the poster child for the Republican Party, then the mother of the octuplets born in California is the poster child of the Democratic Party. She embraces everything the conservatives see as vile. She lives off tort spoils, she has no job, uses food stamps, welfare, and she makes the government pay for in-vitro fertilization. The sad part is that the liberals probably don’t see anything wrong with it.

Skewing the numbers?
The White House seeks to take control of the census, relieving the Commerce Department of the totally non-partisan record keeping of the past, once again making yet another duty of government a political football of sorts. Can you imagine Carl Rove taking over census taking in the beginning of the Bush Administration, exactly how is Rahm Emanuel different?

Abe Lincoln?
More like FDR, let’s review, as described in Wikipedia…”Franklin D. Roosevelt, elected in 1932 and inaugurated March 4, 1933, primarily blamed the excesses of big business for causing an unstable bubble-like economy. Democrats believed the problem was that business had too much money, and the New Deal was intended as a remedy, by empowering labor unions and farmers and by raising taxes on corporate profits. Regulation of the economy was a favorite remedy. Some New Deal regulation (the NRA and AAA) was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. Most New Deal regulations were abolished or scaled back in the 1970s and 1980s in a bipartisan wave of deregulation. However the Securities and Exchange Commission and Social Security won widespread support”…… history not being taught in schools anymore? Does the analogy of the “New Deal”, relate to Obama’s “Raw Deal?” Only the Democrats seem to forget why we installed presidential term limits.

MD in debt
I want to know when Governor Martin O’Malley will demand repayment of the $11 million that was spent because of the Obama Inauguration. I don’t see other states that have spent that to receive our Messiah. Does our braindead Governor think this will have an effect on the division of funds for the “stimulus?” Obviously you aren’t getting a post in Obama’s cabinet Martin, so maybe it’s time to collect past bills, and lighten the load of those whom didn’t vote for him.

Help for Elkhart, IN
Obama said after visiting Elkhart, Indiana (RV capitol of the country)….. “there are people who want to buy RV’s who because of the credit crunch can’t get loans”….I’m sorry but this is one of those things that Barack Obama doesn’t understand. People aren’t buying RV’s because they are in a category considered either discretionary purchases or purchases from expendible income. This is one of those areas that lag first in an economical downturn, and don’t reflect the country as a whole, the people in that industry made the choice to work for a company that could suffer first in these times.

Prosecution of the Bush Administration?
Patrick Leahy of Vermont wants to prosecute members of the Bush Administration, but yet has made no mention of the democrats in congress who gleefully declared there were no problems with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage giants, and CONTINUE to be major parts of the same committees that looked the other way when they were told about an impending crisis.

Newsweek Cover
An article in the new Newsweek lauds the new administration as “we are all socialists now,” as being closer now to the French or EU stance then the past USA stance. They have basically congratulated the Obama Administration on the change to socialism. Sad time indeed for our country!

Senator Chuck Schummer
Sen. Schummer confided to a senate group on Tuesday, that “even though there are some porky items in the senate stimulus plan, America really doesn’t care.” This rather cavalier attitude gives the impression to other senators, it’s ok to add pork barrel to ANY bill. Unfortunately because this appropriations bill was crafted by the democrats as a whole and included no input at all from the republicans, the finger points to them alone for the pork, but it’s a shame that we don’t know exactly which Senators added what pork……..some transparency!
House finance committee grills banking CEO’s
Rep. Barney Frank (known as the most intelligent man in the house)……..god help us! Wednesday Frank is grilling, and bashing banking CEO’s for a multitude of sins that he himself, along with his committee had enabled. This is truly the pot calling the kettle black, but as we know the democrats always need a whipping post, to make themselves look smarter, better, and unscathed! I await the day that Barney Frank sits in front of the house ethics committee, in that same hot seat!

Fairness Doctrine
There has been increasing chatter about reinstating the Fairness Doctrine. This doctrine had to do with fairness in talk radio. Of course the leading group are the liberals, they believe that there isn’t equality in talk radio, liberal vs conservative, labeled as the “let’s silence Rush” act. Personally I don’t appose this action, but what I DO appose is it’s application to just talk radio, let’s institute it in all forms of media, TV, radio, newspaper, afterall equal is equal!

Is it just me, or……

Is it just me, or……

Do you wonder where you can actually FIND the senate stimulus plan, to make an informed decision about whether to support it or not?

Do you wonder why Democrats call everything they do “bipartisan support” whether the Republicans were part of it or not?

Do you wonder how the reported 586 items of “pork” in the stimulus plan (if you can find it) are supposed to help America?

Do you wonder why Obama doesn’t work for the IRS collection department, because just a mere appointment to a cabinet position seems to free the uncollected funds from tax dodgers at previously unheard of level?

Do you wonder why the ability to do a job out weighs morally and ethicly correct behavior in the democratic view?

Do you wonder when did the senate eliminate a true two party dynamic in the writing of bills, stimulus plans, and any other social programs?

Do you wonder how the very same people that were responsible for the housing financial problems stay in their committees, and continue to make mistakes, but claim them now as being in our “best interests?”

Do you wonder if those same members of Congress will ever be the subjects of an ethic committee investigation?

Do you wonder how going from a $439 billion dollar deficit to a $2 to $3 trillion dollar deficit will fix our financial woes?

Do you wonder what the status of the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 is now? If the wealthy can’t buy a house with an excellent credit score are those undeclared income loans still being made, or are the banks in violation of that act?

Do you wonder why the permanently surprised looking Rep.Nancy Pelosi leader of the house, could write an $830 billion dollar stimulus package when she claimed there were 500 million people unemployed in our country, when there are only 300 million in the US?

Do you wonder how we can wage yet another war in Afghanistan, while decreasing military spending by 10%, and promising to eliminate the nuclear arsenal?

Do you wonder about the increasingly partisan rhetoric totally excluding the Republican Party?

Do you wonder with an increasing posture of the Soviet Union to the Cold War status, who will fund the military, with all our funds for the next 10 years being used to nationalize/socialize our financial sector?

Do you wonder who has the right to sign off our rights as citizens to self-government, and hand that power to the United Nations for a New World Order?

Do you wonder why it costs $330,000 to create a job that pays $30,000 a year? Is the clerical expenditure that costly in government?

16 illegals sue rancher who catches them on his land

What the hell is wrong with our country?

By Chelsea Schilling© 2009 WorldNetDaily

A group of 16 illegal aliens is suing an Arizona rancher, claiming he violated their civil rights, falsely imprisoned them and inflicted emotional distress by holding them at gunpoint on his property along the border.

The federal lawsuit against Douglas, Ariz., rancher Roger Barnett, his wife, Barbara, and his brother, Donald, is taking place before Judge John Roll in U.S. District Court and will run through Feb. 13. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, or MALDEF, is representing the five female and 11 male illegals.

Al Garza, National Executive Director for Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, attended the first day of hearings on Monday. While the plaintiffs allege that Barnett attacked them because he is racist, Garza, an American of Mexican descent, said Barnett has never shown any hostility toward him.

"There is no racist agenda here, or I wouldn't be a part of it because I am an American of Hispanic descent," Garza said. "We don't hate anyone from any particular country. We just want our laws enforced. This is not about color."

Many of the aliens are residents of Michoacan, Mexico. Four live in Illinois, one resides in Georgia and another in Michigan. All of the plaintiffs currently living in the U.S. listed pseudonyms in the lawsuit due to "fear of adverse action based on immigration status."
According to the complaint, Barnett, a resident of Douglas who owns 22,000 acres along the border in southeastern Arizona, approached the group of illegals on an all-terrain vehicle on March 7, 2004. He allegedly began yelling at them in English and broken Spanish while aiming his gun at the group. While Barnett's dog barked at the intruders, the illegal aliens accused him of ordering the dog to attack. One of the women said the rancher kicked her because she refused to get up.

Barnett allegedly detained the trespassing illegals until Border Patrol agents arrived.

But Garza said their testimonies don't add up.
"I saw yesterday that these stories were fabricated," he said. "They were coerced into saying things that would ordinarily not be said by an illegal immigrant with no education."
Garza said Barnett's dog has never been vicious and that Barnett did not kick the woman. He also said one female witness told the court the group had been robbed in Mexico and that the only time they feared for their lives was when Barnett accosted them.

"She said she was not afraid in Mexico because there were only four men, and there was only one gun, and the way that they robbed them was in a very nice, very polite fashion," he said. "But when Barnett came into the picture, she said he was very vicious and he wanted to kill them. So they were more afraid of one American defending his property than four robbers on their side."
The lawsuit alleges that Barnett never told the illegals they were trespassing and failed to post a sign notifying them that they were on private property. Because they detained the group, the Barnett family is accused of depriving the plaintiffs of equal protection and due process under the law.

"What in the world are they doing on anyone's property?" Garza asked. "What are they doing in the United States? It doesn't make any sense."
He continued, "They are here breaking laws. They conspired to come here. What makes anyone believe that they are credible?"

MALDEF claims the family attacked, harassed, threatened and held the illegals against their will because they were motivated by racial and class-based discrimination. The Barnetts allegedly caused the group "severe emotional and mental distress," including fear, anxiety, humiliation, stress, frustration and sadness. Each illegal alien is suing for $1 million in actual damages and $1 million for punitive or exemplary damages

In March, the same judge refused to have the lawsuit thrown out, because he said he believed the family denied the aliens' right to interstate travel and that the detention was racially motivated.
The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps and Arizonans for Immigration Control have been rallying in support of Barnett in front of the court.

Garza said property owners are forced to deal with the consequences when immigration laws are not strictly enforced. Illegal aliens cross the border and destroy private property every day.
"I wouldn't blame the guy if he told them to leave," Garza said. "I would have done the same thing because of all of their discarded trash. They urinate everywhere. There is feces all over the place, discarded clothing, shoes, backpacks, cans and other things that we're responsible to pick up. They do that, and we're racist?"

In a 2004 interview with Fred Elbel and Frosty Wooldridge, Barnetts said he used to pick up trash from illegals, but he no longer makes the effort.

"I won't pick it up because some day, I think if our government gets up off their a-- and does the job they're supposed to, they're going to quit coming across and I can make one big concentrated effort, if I'm still alive, to get the trash off," he said. "It's going to take 20, 30 or 40 people with garbage bags to carry it off ... of one particular area. Some days, I think what the hell am I doing this for?"

Garza said groups of illegals cross the border and head to Tucson, Phoenix and other staging areas in Arizona.

"From there, they go into Michigan, Idaho and wherever the demand is," he said. "They find jobs in the hotel business, working at golf courses, landscaping, cooking, and washing dishes. It's not because Americans won't do these jobs; it's because they don't want to pay."
While illegals may only earn $7 an hour for such jobs, Garza said they find other ways to compensate for lack of income.
"They don't mind because they go on welfare and use aliases. They get welfare, food stamps, free education, section 8 housing. They don't have to pay taxes. Why not work for $7 an hour?"
Garza told WND he believes politicians need to stop caving into demands for cheap labor so the influx of illegals will stop. They must secure the borders, enforce immigration law, hold people who hire illegals accountable and stop giving social benefits to noncitizens.
He said, "We're inviting them by giving them an appetite for things like jobs, public and social services like welfare, free medical and things that we don't get as taxpayers."
In the interview, Barnett said he has tried to contact his representatives about the wave of illegals coming across his property.

"They won't listen," he said. "They're useless."

What a Joke

What a Joke
By: Kevin Bryant

This has got to be someone’s idea of a practical joke. In fact this is the biggest crock of CRAP I have read to date on this subject.
President Obama’s quick response to last week’s deadly ice storm that swept through several states - and currently has our neighbor to the north in dire straights - shows what a competent administration can do when they recognize the urgent need to help their people and they’re not looking to place blame (See President George W. Bush telling the world the “I don’t think anyone anticipated a breach of the levees” whopper as well as any one of his revisionist exit interviews.)
Although the problem continues to worsen in some areas - mostly due to treacherous road conditions that make them unnavigable - needed supplies from Mobile Emergency Response Support units (portable radio towers, repeaters and radios; multiple portable KU Band satellite systems and satellite telephones to help officials in areas where cellular towers are inoperative) and FEMA (Incident Response Vehicle, technicians, and radio/repeater equipment, and industrial size generators) are reaching the hardest hit areas.
As hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians lingered in the dark nearly a week after an ice storm wrecked the state’s power grid, National Guard troops prepared to go door-to-door to check on residents….The Federal Emergency Management Agency was also on the ground delivering generators, food and water to residents in need….Utility crews worked feverishly to restore electricity amid the largest state power outage on record…
Even the shelters are getting what they need.

Why can I call this a load of crap….easy, I was in north central and north east Arkansas last weekend and saw first hand what it was still like 5 days AFTER this storm.

Obama’s quick response……..WHAT DAMN RESPONSE???? So what if he declared it a federal disaster area. He was too busy meeting with congressmen and women trying his best to get his stimulus (liberal spending) bill passed. And when he wasn’t doing that, he was nice and comfortably tucked away in an overheated white house while many were without heat.

No one in Arkansas that I know of got a generator from the government. My parents got theirs because I drove 8 hours to bring them one. A friend of mine drove to Birmingham ALABAMA to get one because none were to be had within a 300 mile radius.

The Messiah was too busy preparing to watch the superbowl with his leftist cronies to even bother visiting the area and see first hand what his LACK OF ACTION was doing to the area.

As for FEMA….they must have all gone to Kentucky because NONE were in Arkansas. The only people there were volunteers from neighboring states whose governors donated supplies and National Guard troops to help. Too bad FEMA couldn’t even bring chain saws to the area for the troops to use. What few they had, they brought with them.

Luckily for my parents, the power came back on shortly after I arrived because old refurbished equipment was being trucked in from areas that were previously hit by Katrina. According to the mayor of my hometown, they weren’t sure if the equipment was hold the load or last for any great period of time, but they were thankful for anything.

The stuff I bought and brought to Arkansas other than the generator was snagged up in a hurry and people were willing to may much more than I gave for this stuff. Overall, I bought just over $1200 worth of various items to take to my parents and for the record…..the stuff that was sold, I didn’t even get back all I had paid for it.

The article above claims the roads were impassable. BULL HOCKIE!!!!!!! If I can take my Dodge 1500 2 wheel drive anywhere on highway the evening of January 30th, then I know for a fact that a 4 wheel drive with a competent driver and carrying a chainsaw and a logging chain could get to anywhere on that state by the morning of January 30th.

Obama and his faithful media had the audacity to bash Bush and his actions following Hurricane Katrina. Obama even went out of his way to bash Bush on the White House website. Where do you see an outcry from the media about the mismanagement of this situation… don’t.

Bush visited New Orleans, even helped offload and carry supplies to several aide stations. Obama sat on his butt in the warm and cozy Oval Office and did nothing. New Orleans population immediately after the storm was mainly black and the areas hit by the recent ice storm has a population that is mainly white……….WHO ARE THE RACISTS NOW?

Sniglets 05-09

Sniglets 05-09

Think you have problems with your kids?
The recent birth of octuplets in California happened reportedly to a younger woman, who already had 6 children. She had embryos implanted for this birth, but no mention of a father or partner was made. It seems to me funny that she had the money for invetro fertilization, but not enough money to move out of her parent’s home!

Fonzi scheme
This could be a large disservice to the “Fonz” but the name Ponzi has already been taken. I am curious as to why Bernie Madoff is being tried in court for his Ponzi scheme for taking money from one person, then taking money from a second person, and giving it to the first person with interest……isn’t that what our government does? Maybe Fonzi scheme is what we should call the “scheme” the government has for us.

Good news for a change!
Michael Steele a past Lt. Governor from Maryland, becomes the first African-American chairman of the RNC. He won the bid after 6 rounds of votes collecting 91 votes at the winter session of RNC meeting. He brings a well-thought out plan for the future of the GOP.

Daschle was an embarrassment?
Obama admits he made a mistake on Daschle? He admits a bad choice on Daschle, but says nothing about Richardson, and even less about Geithner who not only did the very same thing Daschle did, but also hired an illegal alien. Funny how the MSM isn’t grilling him over keeping Geithner……..or maybe THAT mistake was ok?

Rangel Rule Act of 2009 (Introduced in House)

Tired of the slippery slimey politicians getting preferential treatment? Then read the article below, then view the actual bill, and tell your local representative how you support the bill, and would like to see it pass, it would surely send a message to Washington about how there are two sets of rules in America!

Bill Would Eliminate IRS Penalties and Interest for All U.S. Taxpayers Thursday, January 29, 2009By Susan Jones, Associated Press

( - All U.S. taxpayers would enjoy the same immunity from IRS penalties and interest as Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner under a bill introduced Wednesday by Republican Rep. John Carter of Texas.

The bill has no chance of passing, but it makes a point: “We must show the American people that Congress is following the same law and the same legal process as we expect them to follow,” said Carter, a former Texas judge.

Under the proposed “Rangel Rule Act of 2009,” any taxpayer who wrote “Rangel Rule” on their return when paying back taxes would be immune from penalties and interest. “If we don’t hold our highest elected officials to the same standards as regular working folks, we owe it to our constituents to change those standards so everyone is abiding by the same law,” the congressman said.

Carter also said the change in tax law would provide good economic stimulus benefits, “as it would free many taxpayers from massive debts to the IRS, restoring those funds to the free market to help create jobs.”

Rangel is currently under investigation by the House ethics committee for allegedly soliciting donations to his non-profit organization in exchange for legislative favors. He has admitted he failed to pay federal taxes on rental income from his beach house in the Dominican Republic. “I never had any idea that I got any income,” he told reporters at a press conference in September.

Republicans have demanded that Rangel step down as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, which oversees the nation’s tax laws, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has refused to force him out.

Timothy Geithner was confirmed this week as U.S. Treasury Secretary despite his failure to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes from 2001 to 2004 while he worked for the International Monetary Fund. At his confirmation hearing, Geithner admitted he’d made “careless, avoidable” mistakes. He repaid his $34,000 tax debt with interest, but the I.R.S. did not impose penalties.


Rangel Rule Act of 2009 (Introduced in House)
HR 735 IH

(b) Clerical Amendment- The table of sections for such chapter is amended by adding at the end the following new item:

By: Kevin Bryant

The other day I was at work and thinking that “WOW”, I just sent Al my 20th op-ed piece and he has published all of them. I have even gotten comments on about half and none of those were negative, so it would appear nobody out there dislikes me. I am sure that at some point, a lot of you have disagreed with some of my way of thinking, logic or just the topics that I choose in general.

I know that Al lives somewhere in the vicinity of Baltimore, but I have never actually had the pleasure of meeting him in person. We met online though a mutual acquaintance that happened to still believe that Bush stole the 2000 & 2004 elections.

So, now that I have been spitting out pieces here and there for some time now, I thought I would tell you a little about myself.

I’m 44 years old and live in Lee’s Summit, MO, which is about 25 minutes outside of Kansas City. I am a materials coordinator for engineering and design firm based in Overland Park, KS and have been since the latter half of 2005. I’m married and I have three kids, ages 21, 18 & 18 (yes, they are twins).

I was born and raised in Northeast Arkansas. I have one brother and one sister who are both older than me and I graduated high school in 1983. While I lived in Arkansas, I installed septic tanks, storm (tornado) shelters, roofed houses, poured and finished concrete, laid and repaired water lines for rural areas of the county, worked for a Dr. Pepper bottling plant and was a member of the Arkansas National Guard.

In 1985, I was working for a construction company out of Tyler Texas while still in the National Guard and I quit it all and transferred from the guard and went active duty Navy. While in the Navy, I completed Basic Supply School and Independent Duty (Enlisted) Supply Officer School.

I have been stationed on 2 ships, the USS White Plains (AFS-4) out of Guam and the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) out of Everett Washington. I was also stationed at Naval Air Station Fallon Nevada, Naval Submarine Base Banger in Silverdale Washington and assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Three based in Port Hueneme California.

After 20 years of being in the Navy and not wanting to return to another ship, I elected to retire after 20 years in 2005 after doing 19 months at Naval Recruiting District Nashville where I was the Assistant Supply Officer

I got married on Guam in 1986 and had my three kids with my first wife. For reasons I still don’t completely understand and probably never will, I returned from my very last deployment I was to do and was greeted with those words that every sailor dreads to hear: “I want a divorce”. Our divorce was final in January 2003.

In September, 2003 while driving from Washington to Tennessee, I met the woman who is now my wife. We got married in July 2006. She is the reason I live where I do. I had another job lined up back in Arkansas for when I got out in 2005, but instead of doing the safe thing, I came to Missouri chasing her.

I grew up in a home that was hard line “Democrat” until this past election. My father, mother and sister had never once voted for a republican. How my brother and I turned out to be conservatives after being raised there is still a mystery to this day. Perhaps it’s because we both like to reserve judgment until we hear both sides of a story and then freely offer you our opinions whether you want to hear them or not.

Anyway, that’s my story, or at least as much as I feel like sharing. I am a private person by nature when it comes to particulars about me. I used to write my email address at the bottom of each piece I would write so that you could make comments to me directly, but Al kept removing it. I never asked him why, but I am sure that he has a valid reason and I respect his judgment.

So, until next time, everyone take care and remember to use facts & reason when debating a liberal, they hate that.

A special thanks to Kevin for his opinion pieces, his email address now appears at the top of the blog........Al

Al Gore’s Propaganda

Al Gore’s Propaganda
January 27th, 2009 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

The methods used by global warming alarmists to convince you that more carbon dioxide is going to ruin the Earth are increasingly laced with insults and attacks directed toward anyone who might disagree with them. For instance, one of the many intellectually lazy (& false) claims is that I am paid by Big Oil.

Mr. Gore’s tactics have been a little more subtle, and reminiscent of propaganda methods which have proved to be effective throughout history at influencing public opinion. One should keep in mind that his main scientific adviser, NASA’s James Hansen, has the most extreme views of any climate researcher when it comes to predicting a global warming induced Armageddon.

Listed below are ten propaganda techniques I have excerpted from Wikipedia. Beneath each are one or more examples of Mr. Gore’s rhetoric as he has attempted to goad the rest of us into reducing our CO2 emissions. Except where indicated, most quotes are from his testimony before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, March 21, 2007. (Mr. Gore is scheduled to testify again tomorrow, January 28, 2009, before the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee…if the cold and snowy weather doesn’t cause them to reschedule.)

Appeal to fear:

Appeals to fear seek to build support by instilling anxieties and panic in the general population.
“I want to testify today about what I believe is a planetary emergency—a crisis that threatens the survival of our civilization and the habitability of the Earth.”

Appeal to authority:
Appeals to authority cite prominent figures to support a position, idea, argument, or course of action. Also, Testimonial: Testimonials are quotations, in or out of context, especially cited to support or reject a given policy, action, program, or personality. The reputation or the role (expert, respected public figure, etc.) of the individual giving the statement is exploited.
“Just six weeks ago, the scientific community, in its strongest statement to date, confirmed that the evidence of warming is unequivocal. Global warming is real and human activity is the main cause.”
“The scientists are virtually screaming from the rooftops now. The debate is over! There’s no longer any debate in the scientific community about this.” (from An Inconvenient Truth)


Bandwagon and “inevitable-victory” appeals attempt to persuade the target audience to join in and take the course of action that “everyone else is taking”. Also, Join the crowd: T his technique reinforces people’s natural desire to be on the winning side. This technique is used to convince the audience that a program is an expression of an irresistible mass movement and that it is in their best interest to join.
“Today, I am here to deliver more than a half million messages to Congressasking for real action on global warming. More than 420 Mayors have nowadopted Kyoto-style commitments in their cities and have urged strong federal action. The evangelical and faith communities have begun to take the lead, calling for measures to protect God’s creation. The State of California, under a Republican Governor and a Democratic legislature, passed strong, economy wide legislation mandating cuts in carbon dioxide. Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia have passed renewable energy standards for the electricity sector.”


An attempt to justify an action on the grounds that doing so will make one more patriotic, or in some way benefit a group, country, or idea. Also, Inevitable victory: invites those not already on the bandwagon to join those already on the road to certain victory. Those already or at least partially on the bandwagon are reassured that staying aboard is their best course of action.
“After all, we have taken on problems of this scope before. When England and then America and our allies rose to meet the threat of global Fascism, together we won two wars

simultaneously in Europe and the Pacific.”

Ad Hominem attacks:
A Latin phrase which has come to mean attacking your opponent, as opposed to attacking their arguments. Also Demonizing the “enemy”: Making individuals from the opposing nation, from a different ethnic group, or those who support the opposing viewpoint appear to be subhuman.
“You know, 15 percent of people believe the moon landing was staged on some movie lot and a somewhat smaller number still believe the Earth is flat. They get together on Saturday night and party with the global-warming deniers.” (October 24, 2006, Seattle University)

Appeal to Prejudice:

Using loaded or emotive terms to attach value or moral goodness to believing the proposition.
And to solve this crisis we can develop a shared sense of moral purpose.” (June 21, 2006, London, England)

Black-and White fallacy:

Presenting only two choices, with the product or idea being propagated as the better choice.
“It is not a question of left vs. right; it is a question of right vs. wrong.” (July 1, 2007, New York Times op-ed)


The use of an event that generates euphoria or happiness, or using an appealing event to boost morale:
Live Earth concerts organized worldwide in 2007 by Al Gore.

Falsifying information:

The creation or deletion of information from public records, in the purpose of making a false record of an event or the actions of a person or organization. Pseudo-sciences are often used to falsify information.
“Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.” (May 9, 2006 Grist interview)

Stereotyping or Name Calling or Labeling:
This technique attempts to arouse prejudices in an audience by labeling the object of the propaganda campaign as something the target audience fears, hates, loathes, or finds undesirable. Also, Obtain disapproval: This technique is used to persuade a target audience to disapprove of an action or idea by suggesting that the idea is popular with groups hated, feared, or held in contempt by the target audience
“There are many who still do not believe that global warming is a problem at all. And it’s no wonder: because they are the targets of a massive and well-organized campaign of disinformation lavishly funded by polluters who are determined to prevent any action to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming out of a fear that their profits might be affected if they had to stop dumping so much pollution into the atmosphere.” (January 15, 2004, New York City)
