I’ll Snitch Myself Out-Letter to Flag@Whitehouse.gov

This is a copy of the letter I sent to the snitch line at the White House:

Rather than rely on a telescreen as envisioned by George Orwell in his groundbreaking tome 1984, or wait for the Obama Youth Corps as currently being funded in New York under Mayor Bloomberg (a la the Nazi Youth Corps and here), I’ll “snitch” myself out.

I blog as Miss Beth at Miss Beth’s Victory Dance (http://missbethsvictorydance.blogspot.com). I’m a 48 year old white female, single mom who works for a living and my children are mulatto. In short, they have more black blood in them than BHO.

First and foremost, don’t even try to pull the race card on me.

I disagree with Comrade obama on many, MANY levels of his policies, not least of which is his farce of health care “reform”. This is not reform but a systematic takeover of yet another industry not mandated by our Constitution. You know, the document Comrade obama is intent upon destroying? The document Comrade obama CLAIMS to have been so knowledgeable of to the point of being able to teach? Yeah, that Constitution.

I object to the nationalization of the banks, the car industry, the bail outs and the robbery at gunpoint of my tax dollars. I object to the “spread the wealth” mentality of this racist in the White House. I object to Comrade obama bowing to the Saudi king while he sells out America. I object to the appeasement of the muslim community, which has stated unequivocally its desire to destroy us. I object to the 42 “czars” who answer to no one but Comrade obama. I object to the constant apologizing for America when he should be defending her. I object to selling out our allies while embracing our enemies. I object to the Neville Chamberlain approach. I object to my tax dollars being used for photo opportunities such as flyovers of New York City. I object to my tax dollars being used for his date nights. I object to the caliber of the company he keeps, such as William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Rev. Pflegler, Skip Gates, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. I object to Comrade obama making racist comments about situations he knows nothing about a la Sgt. Crowley. I object to Comrade obama stripping our military of weapons and strategic military devices. I object to Comrade obama turning everything into a photo op instead of keeping his skinny butt in a chair and doing his job.

I object to Comrade obama’s disrespect for life at all stages, particularly the Infant Born Alive Protection Act and his current fetish for “end of life” counseling in his alleged reform bill. I object to Comrade obama’s attempt to shove this travesty of healthcare down my throat when he hasn’t performed his own due diligence and read the bill while simply using it as a popularity platform. I object to the insane amount of pork Comrade obama has already forced onto future generations through his smoke and mirrors. I object to Comrade obama’s quadrupling the national budget in 6 months–the highest budget in history.

I object to Comrade obama. I didn’t vote for him and I never will. I’m a proud supporter of the tea parties. I’m a fervent supporter of individual rights and I will not become one of your brainwashed sheeple, lapping up the pablum being dropped among the masses by a stuporous, lazy media who refuses to pull the curtain back on the false wizard, showing this emperor wanna be to indeed have no clothes–to mix stories.

I object to the farce of anthropogenic global warming and the further rape of American’s wallets by a non-existent crisis. The earth goes in cycles–learn your geology (particularly your paleo-geology) and quit telling me what light bulbs I can use. I object to being taxed repeatedly because I smoke. Most of us smokers will simply quit and that will put the tobacco companies (and their workers) out of business and end your “honey pot” of money coming in. The Constitution doesn’t provide for you, Comrade obama, to institute a “sin tax” on me.

I will cling to my GOD (who, by the way IS NOT COMRADE obama), my guns and my change. I will make my OWN hope and not rely on a nanny state to provide it to me, telling me when I can live, when I can die, and what kind of quality of life I can have. And I will call for my fellow conservatives to protest, without violence, at every turn and every chance they get, just as the sheeple have been doing since time immemorial–although the sheeple have shown extreme violence toward dissenting opinions and no respect at all for rule of law.

I will continue to use facts and logic in the face of emotionalism. I will continue to point out today’s liberals, Comrade obama chief among them, are themselves the liars, the hypocrites, the racists, the double standard holders, the two faced Janus’, big government monkeys on my back they are. I will continue to work for a living, against all odds, in this travesty of an economy foisted upon us by a Marxist wanna be commander in chief who doesn’t have the balls to produce proof of his eligibility to hold office under our cherished Constitution but who is arrogant enough to demand such proof of his opposition (who promptly produced it). I will continue to point out the misogynistic, narcissistic tendencies of an arrested child who can’t handle a job he most certainly is not qualified to hold. A child who can’t string together a simple sentence without a teleprompter. A child who feels he must stifle all opposition because the opposition sees through the smoke and mirrors.

And I will claim my actions are consistent with my cherished right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution.

Yes, I am blind copying several people on this email. For those people, I am providing Comrade obama’s own words and the links to find them. From the White House Blog itself: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/Facts-Are-Stubborn-Things/. The problem is, we recognize the facts and the lies are no longer working on true Americans who think.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are now exhorted, by the White House itself, to “snitch” on our neighbors and friends who disagree with the travesty known loosely as Obamacare. A direct quote:

“There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”

Those who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it. Hitler had charisma and a smooth tongue himself. As for the Youth Corps, here is a link to Comrade obama’s own words (on video): http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com/2008/11/obamas-plans-for-marxist-like-national.html and the actual text of the bill can be found here:

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-1388

One last question–if this farce called obamacare is so great, why don’t I see you, Comrade obama, being the first to sign yourself and your family up for it–and insisting the rest of Congress do the same? Why? Because it’s not great, it’s not even good. You would reserve the best health care for yourself.

It has been shown, repeatedly, in other countries, your idea is a dead horse. Quit beating it. Otherwise, be prepared for a lot of backlash from true Americans who DO believe in the Constitution, to be aimed at you and your lackies. And we vote. We will no longer tolerate being force fed the slop you think we want to eat. Your hope and change is actually Nope and Cringe.

You have enough clues. Come find me.

Update: John at Stop the ACLU has an awesome piece on this subject here: http://www.stoptheaclu.com/2009/08/04/white-house-website-asking-for-informants-on-anti-healthcare-advocates/

AdHoc Committee: African Submission

Outline for the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards Consultations

An additional mechanism, the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards was created by the Human Rights Council in 2006 to fill gaps in CERD, and to provide new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of contemporary aspects of racism.

The committee’s mission is to write new international legislation to criminalize criticism of Islam. They solicited suggestions from the member nations to get the process started.

The African Group submission by Egypt, makes reference to two external documents:

The curious reader will find some satisfaction in reading the above listed “Non-Paper” and will recognize it as the source of a significant part of the African submission.

The African Group begins by laying down a list of general principles. When reading them, bear in mind the broad definition of racism, which includes “related intolerance” which translates to “Islamophobia”. Wherever “racism” is written, read criticism of Islam.

  • Although laws alone are not sufficient to eradicate racism and racial discrimination, laws remain essential to such efforts.
  • International standards on combating racism must provide for deterrence and be perceived, as far as possible, by actual and potential victims, as satisfactory.
  • No attempt to legitimize racism and racial discrimination can be tolerated in a society ruled by law.
  • The exercise of the right to freedom of expression, assembly and association may be restricted with a view to combating racism in accordance with international human rights law.
  • The prohibition of racism and racial discrimination applies to all public authorities as well as natural and legal persons, both in the public and private spheres.
  • There is a need for a uniform and consistent application of the law to ensure the effectiveness of international efforts to counter racism and racial discrimination.

The discriminating reader has learned that, according to Egypt, complementary standards for combating criticism of Islam must produce legislation sufficient to satisfy the demands of the OIC and will eliminate our right to free speech.

Seven substantive provisions are listed, the fifth of which contains several subordinate clauses of great interest.

  1. Combating incitement to racial and religious hatred. Such acts include:
    • Public insults and defamation and threats against a person or group of persons on the grounds of their race, color, language, religion, nationality, or national or ethnic origin.
    • The public expression which has the purpose or effect of denigrating a group of persons on the basis of the above-mentioned grounds.
    • The public dissemination or distribution, or the production of written, audio or visual or other material containing manifestations of racism and racial discrimination in accordance with the ICERD and the present submission.
    • In addition, these acts must be criminalized in national laws, and the perpetrators thereof punished, as well as those instigating, aiding or abetting them.

Re-read that list, bearing in mind the broader definition of “racism”, substituting “criticism of Islam” wherever it is used in the substantive provisions. These provisions will have the effect of criminalizing all negative expressions about Islam, not just the Danish Cartoons, and Fitna, but these blog posts will be illegal.

After The Smoke Has Gone


Oh my God! That’s what they all say. Oh my God! Oh my God! After a lifetime of denial or indifference suddenly one finds faith. Oh my God! Confronted with the enormity of evil and the certainty of death, when no one else will answer, when no one else will do, we make our final desperate plea to our mysterious disregarded father. We are experiencing an epiphany, a sudden suspension of disbelief. And we all say the same thing, don’t we? Sooner or later we all say the same thing.

Last night I watched them fall again. I watched the buildings fall. Why now, why, when confronted with the certainty of my own demise am I drawn once again to pay homage to this ghastly funeral pyre? Why resurrect the pain? The awful deed has been done. The smoke has cleared. Why do I feel this almost sacred need to relive it? Perhaps it is because of that dramatic and unequivocal title, which I suspect is somehow false and inappropriate: “102 Minutes That Changed America”. Perhaps it is because I fear that America has not really changed. Not really. Not enough. The awful deed has been done. The smoke has cleared. And we have moved on. Life must go on, we tell ourselves. Once again we have withdrawn into the convenient comfort of our intellectual hubris. We have assigned the great event to history, where it sits unobtrusively on the shelf with all of those other omnipotent but disregarded historical events. And we have moved on.

But have our enemies moved on? Have our enemies forgotten us? Abandoned their murderous mission? Or are they patiently waiting for us to forget them? Counting on our notoriously short attention span? Do they know us better than we know them? Than we know ourselves? Has our anger and our fear dissipated with the smoke?

Here, once again, for those who doubt our mortal peril, we revisit the awful event. Can we still cry? Can we still call out, Oh my God!? – rg

I acknowledge my deep appreciation to all of those photographers whose work I have used for this essay. I can only hope that they would approve.

Note: Best viewed on IE in full screen.

Something is happening…

Something is happening here…

something bad is happening…

people are running…

running for their lives…

they’re falling from the sky…

the buildings are falling…

the buildings are gone.

Everything gone.

All those people.

Gone.

Where are you?

What do I do
without you?

Why me?
Why us?
Why now?

Why us?

We must all come together now as one.
We must embrace one another in our mourning.

We must search our souls for answers.
But first we must mourn…

Of course…

not everyone is in mourning…

in fact…

some people…

seem pretty happy…

about the whole thing,
don’t they?

Then again…
there are those who say…

that we deserved it.

That we had it coming.

They say, that by fighting back,
by going to war…

we’re just making everything…

worse.

And sometimes it does seem…

as though every day…

more and more people…

hate us.

Maybe if we just…

kind of…

ignored it…

or…

maybe if we..

just lit a candle…


if we lit a whole bunch of candles…

we could drive away the darkness.

My friends…

this is the darkness.

And this is the candle.

A Major Shift in Priorities


From Radarsite.
Michael Jackson is dead. All other current crises will now be put on hold. Sorry Ahmadinejad, sorry Kim Jong Ill, but your audiences have all left the room. No one is paying any attention to you today, current events have pushed you off the stage. Ahmadinejad, you will just have to continue work on your nuclear weapons without comment from the West. And Kim Jong Ill, your threats and provocations have no weight with us today. Your newsworthiness has been usurped by a much more significant story, a much more significant crisis.
Michael Jackson is dead. From Fox News to the BBC, it has already been decided, this is the major issue of the day. Forget about nuclear proliferation. Forget about escalating threats and impending confrontations. Forget about the Global War on Terror. The Western World has spoken, they have made their priorities known. The Western World has decided what is truly important today, and what is not. And you, Ahmadinejad, and you Kim Jong Ill, just don’t have what it takes to compete with this current crisis. So, just do whatever you want to do, we’re going to be ignoring you for awhile. You see, you’re just not as important as you thought you were. – rg

Neda: The Voice of the Iranian People

Neda

By now the videos of Neda’s death have spread far and wide across the world making her the symbol of the voice of the Iranian People.

Today is Father’s Day. No father should have to live to witness the death of a beloved child.

While glued to Twitter early yesterday afternoon I made the mistake of clicking on the link to the close-up, gruesome, and very graphic YouTube video of Neda’s death. The image of her beautiful eyes in the last moment of her life seared itself into my soul. I could not shake her dying image from my mind and just prayed all day for her family.

By nighttime the new Twitter hashtag: #Neda was burning up the internet with Tweets and RT’s.

RT Woman killed in front of her father "ندا (#Neda) which means voice or call in Farsi. She’s the voice of the people a call to freedom"

4 Neda, girl murdered in Iran on film: Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord & let perpetual light shine uponher. #neda

Read the moving account from the doctor who tried to save her from BreakForNews with graphic still shots taken from the video.

Club Gitmo or Hotel California?

“You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave . . .” from Hotel California by The Eagles.

 

Today E. J. Dionne, of The Washington Post, made a joke on This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Dionne suggested that since California is about to go bankrupt, it would be a great place to relocate the terrorist prisoners from Gitmo.

I had to laugh. Just earlier this morning I came to the same conclusion, but not jokingly. If Gitmo must close, why not build a new Terrorist Only prison in California? After all, if California is looking to the federal government (that’s you and me) for a bailout, wouldn’t they want to sweeten the pot?

California is a perfect place for terrorist relocation.

· Warm sunny climate

· Residents eager to accept illegal invasions of any kind

· Voters who feel the need to provide a luxurious and nurturing environment for hardened terrorists

· Desperate hedonistic state that now needs our money

According to a Wikipedia interpretation of Hotel California it’s the perfect place and the perfect name for a new Terrorist Only prison:

The song’s lyrics describe the title establishment as a luxury resort where "you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave." On the surface, the song tells the tale of a weary traveler who becomes trapped in a nightmarish luxury hotel that at first appeared inviting and tempting. The song is generally understood to be an allegory about hedonism and self-destruction in the Southern California music industry of the late 1970s; Don Henley called it "our interpretation of the high life in Los Angeles[5] and later reiterated "[i]t’s basically a song about the dark underbelly of the American dream and about excess in America, which is something we knew a lot about."[6]
