We Won This Battle...

This is one step in a series of steps that need to be won in order to overturn Obamacare being forced upon everyone.

Federal Judge Roger Vinson on Thursday afternoon tossed out three of the states' six objections to Obamacare, and ruled another one moot.

But he gave the states and the National Federation of Independent Business, which has joined the lawsuit, permission to press forward on the two points most legal analysts say are their strongest:

* That a federally mandated expansion of Medicaid will "run [state] budgets off a cliff."
* That the individual mandate requiring people to have healthcare insurance exceeds the federal government's constitutional authority, under the Commerce Clause, to regulate interstate commerce.
Now, we need to vote in conservatives and get rid of the socialastic politicians, send 'em home with their tails between their legs, once we have a majority of conservatives in the Senate and House, we have a real chance of repealing Obamacare and getting our country back on track.

United States of North Mexico?

I went to Ciro's site today and noticed a revamp of his site, the background is a faded, gray scale image of the American flag, the dominant colors on his site are green, in fact, besides the pictures and videos, green is the only color. What happened to Red White and Blue? I can't help but think of the Mexican flag with the prominent green field. Or perhaps Ciro is trying to appeal to the green movement (the greenies). I just don't know exactly what he is trying to represent, but I know what I see, something unAmerican, a subtle jab at the American flag.

I found out that I can vote without having to go into town, a good thing for me as I would have to catch a ride with someone else, voting is going to be held at a local church in my community, yeah! I can get to that place on my own. I wish I had a t-shirt with Canseco's message on it, I would wear it to vote and would hang out at the church, I know most of the people in my community, it would be a great time visiting and letting people know I support Canseco at the same time. I just contributed some money to Canseco, this is the second time I have done this, I don't have much, but I'm happy to share what I do have, I have learned that if everyone would contribute even a small amount, it adds up.

I will admit that I'm fairly new to politics, well somewhat new. For example, I know about the governor's race, and I am learning about my local representatives. I was in the process of finding out who else is going to be on the ballot come November. A few days ago, I was working at the Country Store, it's a very small store in the middle of our small community. A gentleman walked in, someone I didn't know, that is somewhat rare, I know or at least have seen most everyone who lives in my community, there aren't that many. He introduced himself Marc Wetzel, he is running for the school board in my county and wanted to meet the various people in the community and ask for their vote. I invited him to sit down and have a chat. This is a first for me, I have never had someone running for any office come to me and ask me in person for my vote. We had a nice chat, I enjoyed talking to him and will most likely vote for him, unless something drastic comes up to make me change my mind.

Other than our nice chat, I got something very valuable from him, something that will save me so much time, before he left, he was getting more cards out of his truck, he mentioned that he had a sample ballot, and it had all the names of everyone running for office that we will be voting on. I asked him if I could have that copy, turns out that he had 2 and was willing to part with one, SCORE!

Now I am armed with the names of all the candidates that I can vote for, unfortunately several of them are running uncontested and they are dems, oh well, can't have everything.

I watched a Stossel show this evening, he was talking about voting with no knowledge of who you are voting for and what affects that has, Stossel is of the opinion that one should vote AFTER learning about who the candidates are and learning about politics, the Constitution and how it affects our lives. Stossel is a Libertarian and wants smaller government, no matter who is in charge. He doesn't want people going out to vote who have little or no knowledge of who they are voting for. It was an interesting show. I am doing my part Stossel!

Texas Lawmaker Wants Guard Troops on Request-repost

Texas Lawmaker Wants Guard Troops on Request
Monday, 04 Oct 2010 08:14 AM

By: Jerry Seper

A Texas Republican who steadfastly has prodded the federal government to better secure the U.S.-Mexico border has introduced legislation requiring the Defense Department to make National Guard troops available to states on request.

Rep. Ted Poe, in response to what he called the federal governments failure to answer the repeated requests of border state governors to protect the nation's international borders, has offered the National Guard Border Enforcement Act to ensure that border states "have the needed resources to protect their citizens from the ongoing border-related violence."

The bill, endorsed by 20 other Republican members of the House, would authorize the secretary of defense to make 10,000 National Guard troops available on request from a U.S. governor. In addition, the troops would be paid for by the federal government and serve under the command of the requesting governor.

"The first duty of the federal government is to protect its people," Mr. Poe said. "Texans are tired of the federal government's failure to secure our borders and enforce our laws, yet at the same time running roughshod over state governments when they try to enforce the law and protect their citizens.

"The federal governments 'not our problem' attitude is unacceptable and this legislation will require the Defense Department to do what they were created to do — protect the people of this country and the dignity of our borders," he said.

Currently, the Defense Department has allocated only 250 National Guard troops for the entire 1,254-mile Texas-Mexico border and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has said Texas must pay for any additional troops to enforce existing federal immigration laws along the international border.

Rep. John Culberson, Texas Republican and one of the bill's co-sponsors, said the federal government is "directly responsible for enforcing existing laws to secure our borders and ensure the safe and legal movement of people, goods and commerce across our borders."

"Unfortunately, President Obama has failed in this effort, and it is now time for Congress to act," Mr. Culberson said. "There is a war on our southern border, and it is time to put an end to the horrific violence."

More than 28,000 people have been killed in Mexico's ongoing drug war, which U.S. authorities have said has spilled into the United States.

In September, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) posted signs along a major interstate highway in Arizona, warning travelers the area was unsafe because of drug and alien smugglers.

Pinal County, Ariz., Sheriff Paul Babeu, whose county lies at the center of major drug- and alien-smuggling routes to Phoenix and cities east and west, warned last month that Mexican drug cartels now control some parts of the state.

"This is going on here in Arizona," he said. "This is 70 to 80 miles from the border — 30 miles from the fifth-largest city in the United States."

Under the National Guard Border Enforcement Act, troops will be authorized to conduct armed vehicle and foot patrols on the U.S. southern border; interdict vehicles, vessels, aircraft or other, similar activities; search, seize and detain suspects; construct roads, fences and vehicle barriers; conduct search-and-rescue operations; gather intelligence; conduct surveillance and reconnaissance; and rely on aviation support.

Additionally, the bill would allow the secretary of defense to authorize additional troops should operational control of the U.S. border not be achieved with the first 10,000 National Guard troops deployed.

Mr. Poe, a former state judge and prosecutor, has been a longtime advocate of increased border security. Recently, he warned during a speech on the House floor that Americans were being targeted inside the United States, including fisherman on Falcon Lake in Zapata County, Texas, one of the best bass-fishing spots in the United States. The lake is part of the international boundary between Texas and Mexico.

"That piece of paradise has been intruded on this month by the lawlessness seeping over from the Mexican border," he said, noting that in two separate incidents, U.S. fishermen were robbed at gunpoint on the lake by Mexican pirates, who held AR-15 rifles to their heads.

On Thursday, a McAllen, Texas, man was fatally shot after being ambushed by six Mexican pirates in two boats on Falcon Lake. Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez identified the victim as David Michael Hartley, 30, who was riding with his wife on personal watercraft on the lake.

Sheriff Gonzalez told reporters that Mr. Hartley's wife tried circling back to pull him from the water, but she was forced to retreat after being fired at by the gunmen.

"What are these pirates doing on Falcon Lake?" asked Mr. Poe. "Are they moving drugs or people or worse across the water? We don't know. In the 1800s, Thomas Jefferson sent the Navy to protect Americans from pirates in the Mediterranean. This administration is blissfully silent about the pirates on Falcon Lake.

"Meanwhile, the border war continues," he said. "And that's just the way it is."
