Tea Parties

"It's despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful polical stunt."

Those are the words of Rep. Jan Schawowsky (D-Ill.) regarding yesterday's nationwide "Tea Parties." These tea parties are in protest to the unreasonable amount of debt being run up by the newly elected president and the obvious future tax increases that must occur to pay for these new programs.

What is amazing to me is Schawowsky's protest of Americans using their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. Where is Ms. Schawowsky when Americans assemble to protest our military or Americans assemble to give rights to illegal aliens in this country? Oh, that's right...those are noble causes to Rep. Schawowsky. Real working Americans standing up for their rights isn't noble. Only the jobless should be out protesting anything, right? I'm sure that's what Rep. Schawowsky believes.

The Return of Tyranny

President Obama has been busy these past 3 months. He is slowly, but surely, pulling the country further and further left and doing everything in his power to create additional dependence on the state and government for day to day living. He has weakened America's standing around the world for apologizing for anything he can find. And he plunges the economy deeper in the tank while doing so.

There are so many things wrong with his agenda that it is nearly impossible to find one item in which to go in detail. I guess I will discuss his primary goal which is to create additional dependence on the state to accomplish his ambition of the redistribution of wealth and equal misery for all.

This country was founded on the belief that all were created equal and all have equal opportunity to succeed. There is no guarantee of equal results. Unfortunately, it appears that President Obama has never read the United State Constitution or Bill of Rights. Or he has warped their meaning to the point those documents are unrecognizable.

If President Obama succeeds in his goals, all results will be equal. The redistribution of wealth and private property will occur making all people "equal" regardless of their success. The only way this can occur if for a greater power, the government, to control everything. President Obama believes the government can better handle life than the person actual living. Obama believes the government is better equipped to run your life than you are. Does that make sense?

From health care to education to creating a world government, Obama wants the government to run every aspect of your life and give up American sovereignty. This is the path we are heading down. And this president has accomplished more toward pushing us to this way of life in 3 months than all liberals have since our founding days. This is the return to tyranny from our government. This is the antithesis of what our Founding Fathers envisioned. If America doesn't wake up soon, it will be too late to stop this runaway train.

UNC = National Champs

No real suprise the North Carolina won the national championship last night. It surprised me more than so many people though Carolina might lose somehow. UNC has superior talent and a superior coach. Izzo might have good teams out at Michigan State but they hardly compare to the talent that Roy Williams can acquire at North Carolina.

The only bad part about last night's game was the lack of drama. North Carolina proved from the opening tip that they were there to win a championship and nothing short of that goal would be accepted. UNC dominated the first half of the game by out-hustling the Spartans in every aspect of the game. It was a magnificient performance.

Roy Williams has cemented his legacy as one of the all-time great coaches by destroying Izzo's Michigan State. Two championships down...who knows how many more before he finally leaves UNC. The sky is the limit...he is at North Carolina.
