Back in 1961, Ronald Reagan spoke out against socialized medicine in the above clip. His words are as true today as they were back then. Pass this one along to all your friends, especially those who have bought the "feel good" propaganda foisted upon us by Hillary Rotten Clinton, Michael Moron and other Leftists.

Now it has. Dan Wetsel wrote the following ("Racial Divide") for Yahoo Sports
But here was America in full force, full vision, mixing it up while Vick pled not guilty to federal charges pertaining to an alleged dog-fighting ring on property he owned in rural Surry County. And front and center, impossible to ignore, was race.
Like Smith, almost all of the people supporting Vick or holding signs pleading for "due process" and "innocence until proven guilty" were African American.
On the other side was an emotional, angry, passionate anti-Vick group that was overwhelmingly white.
Today, the NAACP entered the fray, through their Atlanta Chapter. From ABC News.com.
...R.L. White, president of the Atlanta chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, urged the public today to restrain itself from prematurely passing judgment on Vick.
"If Mr. Vick is guilty, he should pay for his crime, but to treat him as he is being treated now is also a crime," White said at a news conference. "Be restrained in your premature judgment until the legal process is completed."
Compare that to when the Duke Lacrosse players were being crucified by a rogue prosecutor, Mike Nifong, all for the sake of politics. As doubt was beginning to surface about the accuser, a black woman, the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP floated the idea of a issuing "gag order" on the case.
...Al McSurely, an attorney who chairs the Legal Redress Committee for the state National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said he generally respects the defense attorneys in the case as colleagues. But they are violating the State Bar’s rules of professional conduct that discourage comments outside court that are likely to prejudice a case, he said.
The North Carolina NAACP even went out of their way to list all the allegations against the white Lacrosse players in an August 2006 posting on their website. Even when the rape allegations were dropped against the three players charged, the Rev. William J. Barber II, state president of the state's NAACP still said the case should be judge in the court of law rather than public opinion. Barber even told WRAL television that, regardless of the legal outcome in the Duke case, "the community still has to confront “classism,” racism and sexual violence."
“Those are issues, we’re going to have to address, regardless of where this particular case goes. We gotta face that truth, whatever it is,” he told the station.
What ever happened to the concept of "color blind justice?" In both cases, the respective NAACP chapters have sided either the accuser or accused on the sole basis of skin color. Of course, the legal process should be allowed to go forward. However, I did not hear any outrage by the Atlanta NAACP about the allegations against Vick nor condemnation of dog fighting, just as the North Carolina NAACP was mum on condemning the phony allegations made by a black woman against three white lacrosse players. I, as well as other Americans, could care less about Michael Vick's skin color. What he is alleged to have done is barbaric and horrible. He deserves to have his products dropped by Nike and Reebok. He should also be suspended by the NFL.
By the same token, the NAACP has shown they should no longer be viewed as a legitimate civil rights organization. The sides they've taken in Michael Vick and the Duke Lacrosse case, as well as Julian Bond's outrageous comments earlier this year, show how the NAACP is no longer concerned about promoting the "advancement of colored people." Instead, it is an organization that uses race-baiting to keep racial wounds and division alive as an open sore upon the American landscape.
Found this on Little Green Footballs. Fellow blogger Atlas Shrugs had her photo taken with Mama Moonbat Cindy Sheehan and told her exactly how many of us feel about her!
Way to go, Atlas Shrugs! Two thumbs up!

This past March, Minutemen members and Marin County residents of different political persuasions rallied to show support for Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, while protesting the aiding and abetting of illegal aliens by San Rafael Mayor Al "We Won't Enforce Immigration Laws" Boro and the Marin County Board of Stupidvisors. ICE agents acted on warrants to round up illegals in Novato and the Canal area of San Rafael who had ignored deportation orders. For their efforts, ICE was attacked in community forums and local liberal media by illegal alien advocacy groups and the elected officials who pander to them.
Showing their ignorance and lack of intellectual argument, the open borders crowd held signs saying "Racists Go Home." They had promoted their counter-protest online using the typical, race-baiting smear tactics the Left is known for. On the website for the Marin Appeasement & Injustice Coalition, the following slander appeared.
"Marin Border Patrol" call to action. Stop the racist assault on our community. We are being invaded by racist carpetbaggers. They are intent on bringing their diluted and well concealed KKK brand of racist actions to Marin. Join us in Saying NO, we don't want your intolerant fascist tactics and wacko conspiracy theorist (sic) in our community."
As long as the Appeasement & Injustice Coalition wants to talk about racism, hate and conspiracy theories, lets look at the facts.
Conveniently missed by the MPJC is the following note on the website of Golden Gate Minutemen/East Bay Coalition for Border Security.
The East Bay Coalition has NO ROOM for Racists, Socialists or Communists. We welcome Legal Immigrants! We treat people on the basis of what they say and what they do, not by how they look, appear or the color of their skin! We also want people to assimilate to our constitution, our laws and our moral Republic, yet we also respect the cultures of other people, their languages and their right to preserve their own traditions.
When it comes to racism, what about the open borders types who look at illegal immigrants as "doing the jobs Americans won't do?" How demeaning to look down upon illegal immigrants as mere toilet cleaners and lawn mowers.
Then there’s the anti-Semitism of the Marin County Left. During the Mill Valley Memorial Day Parade in 2004, a sign was carried by the Appeasement & Injustice Coalition calling Ariel Sharon a war criminal. The Marin IJ reported in May 2005 that fliers were passed out stating "Jews are responsible for 9/11." The MPJC's letter of apology to the parade committee consisted of a diatribe about how Israel was the aggressor. More recently, a Marin Voice column by a MPJC member defended Iran seeking nuclear weapons "since Israel is bristling with them" and used the term "neo-con;" a politically correct slur used by the Left against Jews.
And when it comes to "wacko conspiracy theories, " the MPJC website is full of them. They claim "the Bush administration is colluding with Israel for Tel Aviv to launch a pre-emptive attack against Iran's nuclear facilities." There's also the "Osama bin Laden Book Club," 9/11 conspiracy material (more here), and so-called 9/11 truthers have marched with the group.
And the MPJC/open borders advocates dare to call the Minutemen, “racists” and “conspiracy theorists?”

"The Summer of Love" 40 Year Anniversary--Glorifying Leftism, Treason & Self-Indulgence To New Generations
The so-called Summer of Love turned 40 this summer and thus comes the glorification of that era by the liberal MSM: local and national. There was a recent fashion article in the Marin IJ about 1960's style dress. VH1 Classic did a recent 40 year retrospective on the Monterey Pop Festival. The Mount Tam Mountain Play this year was an adaptation of the hippie play "Hair."
Some Marin youth are being baptized into the dark waters of 1960's Leftism. This weekend, Academy DeTurk summer camp is holding performances of a play entitled "Peace & Harmony" at Ross School. The show, "channels the '60s with music from the era, plus topical monologues including the occupation of Iraq, bombs, racism and homelessness."
A recent Pacific Sun article with 1960's survivors Paul Kantner (whom I met once at a San Francisco guitar shop. He smelled like a tobacco factory), Grace Slick, Wavy ("WE MUST BE IN HEAVEN MAN!") Gravy and Bob Weir. The topics and discussion are favorites among aging Leftist hippies: how the events of 1960's parallel today, Iraq is Vietnam redux and George W. Bush sucks so why can't we have another social revolution like in 1967?
In reality, the Summer of Love should have been called the Summer of Self-Indulgence. It had nothing to do with “peace and love. It was only an excuse to run away from reality, take lots of drugs and have lots of sex with as many people as possible. It left these misguided youth with the grand delusion that dropping acid, toking on a bong and free love could make us all brothers and sisters, man! The party never ends either, as the eras icons like Kantner, Slick, Country Joe McDonald and others, act like 60-plus year old children who never grew up.
Dick Feagler was a reporter who was sent to San Francisco to cover the phenomenon as it was happening. In a recent article, "Summer Of Love Put Us All On A Bad Cultural Trip," he wrote:
"... When I got home, I wrote a four-part series about Haight-Ashbury. It got a lot of response. The saddest response was from parents who said: "Did you run into my daughter, Denise? She ran away from home. Did you see her?''From a musical perspective, guitar wildman Ted Nugent wrote of that period in The Summer of Drugs.
...I didn't know it then, but the Summer of Love was a summer that changed the culture. The kids — the most pampered generation we had produced for a long time — made American music unmusical and American speech obscene. They erased from the American scene any idea of civility or seemliness.
"I literally had to step over stoned, drooling fans, band mates, concert promoters and staff to pursue my musical American Dream throughout the 1960s and 1970s. I flushed more dope and cocaine down backstage toilets than I care to remember. In utter frustration I was even forced to punch my way through violent dopers on occasion. So much for peace and love. The DEA should make me an honorary officer.
I was forced to fire band members and business associates due to mindless, dangerous, illegal drug use. Clean and sober for 59 years, I am still rocking my brains out and approaching my 6,000th concert. Clean and sober is the real party.
Most of Feagler's assessment is on the money. They were the children of the Greatest Generation, who toiled through the Great Depression and fought World War II. Their children, the "Selfish Generation," lived in relative luxury and comfort their parents never knew as children. Where I disagree with Feagler is about some the music during that era.
While there were so-called "musicians" who were nothing but a traveling freak show while glorifing collectivism (Crosby, Stills Nash and Neil Young, the Grateful Dead), there were musical innovators and geniuses. Janis Joplin erased the myth that you can't be white and sing the blues. Jimi Hendrix was perhaps the greatest innovator of the electric guitar since it was invented. All that God-given talent was extinguished due to the lifestyle of the 1960s. Jimi, Janis and others like Michael Bloomfield were among the casualties of the drug lifestyle. Others have carried on into their sixties. Grace Slick, for example, could never stay clean because she can't let go of being Grace Slick.
What is not examined are the consequences of what the "Selfish Generation" has wrought. Divorce is all too common today, leaving many one parent households and scarred children. The "free love" of the 1960's spawned sexually transmitted diseases as well as AIDS. Crime has risen in the last 40 years. The police and military were made out to be the bad guy, while the criminal and America's enemies become the oppressed. The Democrat Party, the Party of Reason of FDR, Truman and JFK, was taken over by the 1960's radicals, becoming the Party of Treason it is today. The anti-war movement of the 1960's has never been held to account for the genocide in Southeast Asia after forcing the United States military from Vietnam. These gray haired types are raring to relive their salad days of treason against America once again, agitating for one more humiliation of the American military in Iraq, which would lead to one more genocide. While everyone wants clean air and water, environmentalist extremism was used by these tree-hugging hippies to hinder fuel production, making America dependent on foreign sources of fuel from the volatile Middle East.
I don't remember the 1960's. I have an excuse. The first six months of my life were the decade's last six months. However, my generation and those after us have paid for what has come from the so-called Summer of Love. The radical students of the 1960's became the professors who glorified their youth to us while teaching us revisionist American history, that capitalism was supposedly evil and the lie that Republicans only favored the top one percent of wage earners. As someone who has been a semi-professional musician, I've seen firsthand what the "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" lifestyle spawned by the 1960's has done to many fellow musicians. The difference today is, many of us are aware of and are exposing their lies.
In any recollection of the Summer of Love, some perspective needs to be given to the glorification of that period. In addition, the Summer of Love must be held to account for the social, cultural and political pollution it and it’s surviving acolytes have continued to strewn across our nation, as well as future generations of Americans.

Goerl is offering a $500 reward and also paid $1,000 for an ad in the Marin IJ seeking information on those who attacked his flag.
"I saw guys die right in front of me during the war," Goerl told the IJ. "I think about the guys who lost their lives. They respected this country. I expect people to be respectful of the flag." "It's a shame these days because people have such a different attitude about patriotism."
I support Mr. Goerl and hope he is able to find these punks who attacked his flag and that they are punished. Unfortunately, they are a product of the treasonous environment in which they live. Fairfax California was the home of the American Taliban, John Walker Lindh. The town council has passed resolutions calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney, as well as against the Iraq War and the Patriot Act. Most recently, the council wanted to use the American flag in a disrespectful manner, flying it a half-staff until the Iraq War ends or January 20, 2009, President Bush's last day in office.
In addition to the jerks who desecrated Mr. Goerl's flag, Fairfax California also needs to learn a lot more about patriotism.
In reality, her organization should rename itself as the Marin Illegal Alien Rights Coalition, because she did nothing in her piece but call for the elimination of America's Southern Border and amnesty for people who have broken our immigration laws.
In brief, this was Beltran's plan for so-called "immigration reform:" a path to citizenship for illegal aliens already here, family reunification, ending immigration raids and deportation, move visas and green cards, "demilitarizing" the border and offering "services at the border that help ease the transition for immigrants and assure that their human rights and civil liberties are protected."
Beltran also argues that illegal aliens pay their fair share in taxes, because they pay property taxes through rent as well as sales taxes.
The reality which the Marin IJ and open borders advocates like Beltran and Tom Wilson of Canal Alliance refuse to discuss is the payroll taxes that don't get paid by illegals who work "under the table" or who are working under a social security number obtained by fraud. These taxes do not pay for the education, health care and other social service costs which American taxpayers are forced to pick up the tab for. Beltran and her allies do not mention how $16.6 billion in American money was sent from illegal aliens in the United States to Mexico in 2005. That figure is up 24 percent from 2003 and actually surpassed Mexico's oil revenues that year.
While the open borders crowd wants to "demilitarize" the border, Beltran, Wilson and the Marin IJ ignore the growing threat of MS-13 and other gangs. Their solutions would leave America's southern border vulnerable for al-Queda terrorists who would sneak in with a dirty bomb or possible nuclear device.
The Marin IJ would do itself a service and possibly increase their circulation, if they were willing to tell both sides of the story, instead of acting as a mouthpiece for every Left-wing organization which seeks the downfall of America as we know it.

Photojournalist extraordinaire Zombie got word of their plans and was there to cover the party crashing, in all it's...well...debauchery. If you're brave, click here for Zombie's photo essay. Be forewarned, I will not be held responsible for any sickness that may occur from viewing this photo essay.
I will publish one of Zombie's photos, though.
This is the "peace activists" van (or breastmobile????), a Freightliner Sprinter 2500 SHC (year unknown). Some owners of the Sprinter state the van gets anywhere from 20 to 24 miles per gallon.And these are some of the same liberals who scream "No Blood For Oil?"
UPDATE: I stand corrected on the Sprinter 2500. A reader with knowledge in the automobile industry informed me that the Spinter is actually the most efficient vehicle of its size and is fueled by "the latest, cleanest diesel fuel." Thank you for the tip!

On July 5th, a poster named * Jeff * 'The Dude' Lebowski, posted the following photo on Cindy's MySpace page. The photo is another illustration of the nutroots obsession with the death of President Bush.
Photo of President Bush in electric chair posted by a "friend" on Cindy Sheehan's MySpace page.
Lebowski, a 53 year old from Tennessee, has a private profile page to which you must be added as one of his "friends" to view. I wonder what he's hiding from the rest of the world?
Ms. Sheehan obviously has no qualms about this photo being on her MySpace page, as she hasn't taken it down. Thus, by keeping this photo posted, she is constituting an endorsement of violence against the President of the United States.
Then again, look at two of the people she's listed as heroes, the mass murdering Marxist (as well as hero to upper-class Marin County teenagers) Che Guevara and anarchist "Red" Emma Goldman. Besides ending the War on Terror, torture and "raping of the Earth," Cindy lists among her interests "Decriminalizing marijuana (that's for you Willie [Nelson?])."
So while Cindy and her comrades claim to be for "peace," they are instead promoting hatred, violence and anarchy.
Well, a man by the name of Mike Kaminski gave us a clue in this splendid YouTube video channelling what the great General Patton might say about our War on Terror and the treasonous Democrats like Harry Reid.
There's link to video and transcripts at Mark Finklestein's blog at Newsbusters.org.
To show how much of a mental midget she is, Wolf recently wrote how the Bush Administration is supposedly leading America to fascism (Fascist America, in 10 easy steps). That's funny, because everywhere in the news I look, it is the very liberals Wolf cheerleads for who want to silence dissenting voices (via the Fairness Doctrine and McLame/Feingold legislation). These same libs also want to punish people who report possible terror suspects. Everything Wolf accuses conservatives of doing, liberals actually seek to do.
Hey Naomi, why don't you read the Constitution, the U.S. Constitution that is! And please keep your lectures about what is unAmerican to yourself. Because everything people like you want to impose on this nation IS unAmerican.

In yesterday's New York Daily News, she wrote a great piece entitle; Congressional leaders fail to protect terror tipsters from insane lawsuits. It can also be found on 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America.
Burlingame make the following observations:
An FBI spokesman called the 23-year-old tipster an “unsung hero” and acknowledged that the plot would have gone undiscovered if he hadn’t stepped forward. The hero clerk later told reporters that after seeing several Middle Eastern-looking men shouting “Allah Akbar” while firing assault rifles and engaging in military-type maneuvers on the video, he discussed overnight with his family whether or not to call authorities. Lucky for us, he made the right decision.
But would he have made that call if he thought getting it wrong might require defending himself against a multimillion-dollar lawsuit? Would you? “An overwhelmingly bipartisan majority of Congress supports protecting vigilant citizens who are our first and sometimes last resource in the War on Terror,” said Steve Pearce (R-N.M.), co-author of the John Doe bill. “But unfortunately they’re not going to get the support of the new majority leadership in Congress.” It has been nearly six years since 19 ordinary-looking men boarded four commercial airliners, killed all the pilots and then flew the planes into buildings and the ground.
One of those most haunted by that day is the airline employee who checked in two of the hijackers that morning. He told the 9/11 commission that the pair, traveling on first class, one-way, e-tickets, “didn’t act right.” Though he selected them for secondary screening, he didn’t request a more thorough search because “I was worried about being accused of being ‘racist’ and letting ‘prejudice’ get in the way.”
We disarm ourselves when we succumb to political correctness - which encourages us to second guess our common sense and look the other way. It is an outrage that Pelosi and Reid would allow individuals to be punished when they come forward to protect us all.
It's an outrage that, six years after 9/11, a majority of Democrats appear as they are more on the side of terrorists than their constituents, the American people, which they too an oath to defend.

"Congressional Democrats today failed to include a provision in homeland security legislation that would protect the public from being sued for reporting suspicious behavior that may lead to a terrorist attack, according to House Republican leaders.
"This is a slap in the face of good citizens who do their patriotic duty and come forward, and it caves in to radical Islamists," said Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican and ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee.
...Mr. King and Rep. Steve Pearce, New Mexico Republican, sponsored the provision after a group of Muslim imams filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against US Airways and unknown "John Doe" passengers. The imams were removed from US Airways Flight 300 on Nov. 20 after fellow passengers on the Minneapolis-to-Phoenix flight complained about the imams' suspicious behavior.
...Democratic leaders held a press conference with members of the September 11 commission just prior to the conference meeting but did not address the fate of the provision.
“We have always said that any discussion of September 11 in any way, shape or form would be made on sacred ground, with reverence to those who were lost,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat.
“We promised you answers, and we promised you a safer America. Hopefully, this legislation will fulfill the rest of the promise,” Mrs. Pelosi said."
More broken promises from Nancy Bella-Pelosi, "Dirty" Harry Reid and the soft-on-terrorism Democrats. Instead of siding on protecting the American people, they are siding with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and their 15 members who yell "Islamophobia" anytime a Muslim is caught acting suspiciously. CAIR has been named as unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terror financing case. CAIR's Director of Communications, Ibrahim Hooper, was quoted in 2003 saying "CAIR does not support these groups publicly," when questioned about support for Hamas & Hezbollah.
If this legislation is not reinserted in the Homeland Security legislation, Americans will be intimidated from reporting suspicious behavior, like the Fort Dix Six or future attempts at hijacking aircraft. This will cause huge financial losses for the airlines. Who will want to fly when the airlines will be intimidated from removing a suspicious passenger and people will be afraid of reporting suspicious behavior? I would not put myself or my family on an airplane if that is to be the case.
Democrats have been quick to bash the Bush Administration this week about al-Queda's resurgence in strength. What have those Democrats done to make America safer? They've argued for due process rights for captured al-Queda terrorists. They've tried to stop the NSA terrorist surveillance program, tracking financial transactions and the use of harsh interrogation methods. Now, they're coming to the aid of terrorist front groups and their clients who are intimidating Americans from reporting possible terror suspects. That's why they're seen as soft-on-terrorism.
The security of the American people should be a non-partisan issue. Democrats are so blinded by their hatred for President Bush that they might cause another terror attack to happen, just for the sake of handing him a political defeat.
Now, some of the accused Marines have been cleared of the charges against them. Has Murtha offered an apology for his slander of these men?
Tim Sumner, a great American, called into Mark Levin's radio show yesterday and let listeners know of a website where they can let Murtha know they don't appreciate him attacking our brave Marines. If you'd like to contribute, go to Letters to Murtha.
The first letter is from the father of L/Cpl Justin Sharratt, one of the Marines slandered by Murtha who was cleared of all charges.
"On 17 May 2006 you accused my son and his fellow Marines of killing “innocent civilians in cold blood.” In making such a statement you have denied my son, and his comrades, their constitutional rights to a fair trial. You violated their rights to due process and the presumption of innocence.
As a U. S. Congressman you took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. This is not a oath to be taken lightly. On numerous occasions you, Congressman Murtha, have made unsupported, untruthful allegations involving an ongoing Haditha investigation. You added further to these transgressions by lying to the American people as to the source of your unsupported allegations. You sir have violated this oath, you have violated this sacred trust. Marines, soldiers and sailors have been dying for over two hundred years to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. You have disgraced their sacrafices with your callous disregard for Our Haditha Marines.
The people of the United States and those of Pa Congressional District 12 deserve better in their representative, they demand better. An apology would be too late — too little. Congressman John Murtha, I ask for your resignation as the Congressional Representative of District 12 — the people of the United States demand your resignation.
Well said, Mr. Sharratt!

"America is paying an enormous cost for a war we never should have fought, and
it’s time to bring it to an end. The war has divided us here at home, and it has

America taken such massive military action with so little international
Mary Jo Kopechne
Thirty eight years ago, on the night of July 18, 1969, Kennedy left a party at Chappaquiddick, Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, with Mary Jo Kopechne, a worker on RFK's Presidential Campaign. He left the party despite having consumed several alcoholic drinks that day. As Kennedy's 1967 Oldsmobile crossed a low wooden bridge, he made a wrong turn and drove the car with him and Ms. Kopechne into Poucha Pond. Kennedy freed himself, but left Kopechne behind. After going back to the party to try and get help, Kennedy swam the channel back to his hotel and did not report the incident to police. The car, and Ms. Kopechne's body, were recovered the next morning. According to Wikipedia:
"Kennedy discussed the accident with several people, including his lawyer and
Kopechne's parents, before discussing it with the police the next morning."
Instead of being in prison, where he belongs, Ted Kennedy sits in the United States Senate, 38 years later. Showing not one ounce of shame, he has sat in judgement of people like Robert Bork, John Tower, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. Today, he has the nerve to sit in judgement not only over the United States military but how the rest of the world thinks of us. He wants to withdraw from Iraq, never mind the fact that the blood of our soldiers and innocent Iraqis who would be killed in the aftermath will be on his already blood-stained hands.
Could Mary Jo have survived, if the police had been alerted right after the accident?
Ted Kennedy, an alcoholic womanizer who got away with murder 38 years ago, is the last person who should sit in judgement of anyone.

Once again, the great folks at Move America Forward are stepping up to the plate and planning another cross-country caravan to stand up to the voices calling for surrender in Iraq.
From MAF Press Release:
"Supporters of Operation Iraqi Freedom will conduct a nationwide caravan along with more than 2-dozen rallies calling for continued support of U.S. troops based in Iraq in the days leading up to General David Petraeus September 15th report to Congress.
From September 3, 2007 through September 15, 2007 the nation’s largest grassroots, pro-troop organization, Move America Forward will lead thousands of supporters in a cross-country effort called the “FIGHT FOR VICTORY TOUR.”
“We’ll launch the cross-country caravan Monday, September 3rd with rallies outside the offices of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in California,” said Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward.
“The caravan will then continue across the nation until we reach Washington, D.C. for a giant pro-troop rally on September 15th – the day that General David Petraeus, the U.S. Commanding General in Iraq, delivers his report on ‘The Surge’ to Congress,” Morgan said.
“During the cross-country caravan we will stop and conduct pro-troop rallies that will be attended by thousands upon thousands of patriotic Americans who believe that our leaders cannot be allowed to undercut our troops who are bravely serving on the frontlines of the war against Islamic jihadism,” said Robert Dixon, Executive Director of Move America Forward.
The current schedule for the caravan includes pro-troop rally stops in more than 2 DOZEN cities across America including: Carson City, NV - Sacramento, CA - San Francisco, CA – Modesto, CA - Fresno, CA - Los Angeles, CA - San Diego, CA - Yuma, AZ - Phoenix, AZ - Tucson, AZ - Las Cruces, NM - El Paso, TX - San Antonio, TX - Waco, TX - Crawford, TX - Dallas, TX - Oklahoma City, OK - Wichita, KS - Kansas City, MO - Des Moines, IA - Cedar Rapids, IA - Chicago, IL - Indianapolis, IN - Cincinnati, OH - Columbus, OH – Pittsburgh, PA - Washington D.C."
The itinerary for the "Fight For Victory" tour consists of stops in Sacramento and San Francisco on Labor Day, September 3rd. The San Francisco event is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. I'm planning to be among those in attendance.
Please be there too. Our troops need us now more than ever.
Leftist "art" in San Francisco, whose message is echoed by Democrat Party
So while Democrats claim over and over how they "support the troops," their actions and rhetoric prove that is complete (and I'll use the word) bullshit! They are more concerned about winning the White House in 2008 as well as keeping their vice grip on Congress.
And they'll embolden our Islamofascist terrorist enemy in order to accomplish their political ends.

On a day when the headlines scream that al-Qaida is regaining strength and seeking to plant operatives for attacks in the United States, the Democrats in the House once again voted for surrender to the terrorist insurgency in Iraq.
As usual, Lynn Woolsey, along with Nancy Bella-Pelosi and the rest of the Bay Area Democrat traitors, voted to stab our troops in the back, thus siding with the terrorists. Ten Democrats did vote the right way and they should be applauded. Four RINOS (Rep. John Duncan, TN; Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, MO; Rep. Wayne Gilchrest, MD; Rep. Walter Jones, NC) voted with the terrorists. These four traitors should have their asses voted out!
Is there any wonder why al-Qaida is regaining strength? These scum pay attention to the news coming out of America and see which political party is on their side. It is the overwhelming majority of Democrats, along with some rotten eunuch "Republicans" who have become stooges and apologists for Islamofascist terror.
These are the same people who want to stop eavesdropping on possible terrorist cells in America. They are the same ones who call our troops "Nazis," "murderers," and torturers "reopening Saddam's torture chambers." Every common sense method to stop terrorism, they are against. They've even wanted to stop using the term "global War on Terrorism." If they get their wish and "redeploy" our brave men and women from Iraq (cut and run), not only will they help create a genocide rivaling the Killing Fields of Cambodia, they will give al-Qaida a base of operations to conduct attacks on America and our allies. They will also give Osama bin Laden the biggest recruiting tool he could ever dream for, the defeat of America on the battlefield.
And God forbid the day comes when America is attacked on a scale larger than 9/11. It will be Woolsey, Pelosi, Reid, Durbin, Kennedy and the rest of the Democrat party who should be held accountable for such an attack.
And the blood of dead American citizens will be on the hands of these Democrats.
Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams came from Ireland to Texas to declare that President Bush should be impeached.
In a keynote speech at the International Women's Peace Conference on Wednesday night, Ms. Williams told a crowd of about 1,000 that the Bush administration has been treacherous and wrong and acted unconstitutionally.
"Right now, I could kill George Bush," she said at the Adam's Mark Hotel and Conference Center in Dallas. "No, I don't mean that. How could you nonviolently kill somebody? I would love to be able to do that."
About half the crowd gave her a standing ovation after she called for Mr. Bush's removal from power.
"The Muslim world right now is suffering beyond belief," she said.
"Unless the president of the United States is held responsible for what he's doing and what he has done, there's no one in the Muslim world who will forgive him."
“On July 24, 2006, while delivering a speech at the Earth Dialogue forums, Williams told school children at the Brisbane City Hall, “I have a very hard time with this word ‘non-violence,’ because I don’t believe that I am non-violent.” She went on to say, “Right now, I would love to kill George Bush”, blaming him for the deaths of children, particularly in the Middle East. “I don’t know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize, because when I see children die the anger in me is just beyond belief. It’s our duty as human beings, whatever age we are, to
become the protectors of human life.”

Leftist "Patriotism" in Marin County: Body Bags in Memorial Day Parade, Blame America 1st Editorial on July 4th
How is "patriotism" defined by Marin County liberals?
Going to any extreme necessary to demonstrate opposition to America's military who is defending us from our foreign enemies, as well as blame America First editorials from the local newspaper.
A reader sent me a link to this story about Mill Valley's Memorial Day Parade, from a fellow blogger Cadillac Bob at The Rumpus Ranch.
"We were guests of the Mill Valley Mole and his family, who are by necessity stealth Republicans in that seditious enclave. They have to live there, and so do their children -- wouldn’t do to provoke the locals. Liberals can be vindictive.
True to form, at least half the parade constituted antiwar displays, and some of them were incredibly offensive. The worst comprised four Vietnam-era veterans -- paunchy ex-conscripts wearing tattered Navy uniforms -- who were carrying a body bag.
Along the route, these grotesque ghouls kept approaching little children, demanding, “Have you ever seen a body bag?” It took every bit of my self-control not to snap, “Would you like to see the inside of a body bag?”
Asking small children, of all things, if they've seen a body bag?! See previous coverage of this year's parade, which also shows other outrageous acts these anti-war groups have committed on a day when our fallen heroes are supposed to be remembered. I must note also that the entry form for Mill Valley's parade states that "the committee reserves the right to refuse entrants/floats it deems offensive, inappropriate or contrary to the spirit of the parade or the town of Mill Valley." Does anti-war, anti-military types showing a body bag to young children not offend you; Mill Valley I Love A Parade committee?
That brings me to the Marin IJ's July 4th editorial, which started innocently enough by noting that "this is a day that should unite us, not divide us." A few paragraphs later, the IJ editors used the occasion of this nation's birthday to issue a backhanded slap to her, writing their laundry list of America's mistakes--slavery, internment of Japanese in World War II, denial of same-sex marriage, etc. In other words, the same grievances used by America haters to illustrate what a rotten country they think the United States of America is.
Oh, but the IJ Editors had to admit a few good points.
"At our best - fighting to liberate Europe during the dark days of Nazism, ending slavery in our own country with a bloody civil war, creating and enshrining new freedoms and equalities through legislation and our legal system - we are an awesome and inspiring moral force imbued with tolerance and a faith in something larger and more important than ourselves.
Hey IJ, what about the defeat of Imperial Japan? What about how the United States, thanks to the leadership of Ronald Reagan, ended the Cold War, which ushered the collapse of Communism? The "Evil Empire" of the Soviet Union was no more, and the former Iron Curtain nations of Eastern Europe had the opportunity to live in freedom. What about how America's military has liberated Afghanistan and Iraq from brutal regimes? That's no thanks to liberal Democrats and Leftist rags like the Marin IJ.
Are we a perfect nation? Of course not. However, our greatness lies in our ability to right our wrongs. Look at how the United States made reparations to the Japanese interned during World War II. This despite the fact that Japan has refused to apologize for the Pearl Harbor attack, the brutal treatment of American POWs in the Bataan Death March, the beheadings and torture of other POW's. What about Japan's brutal treatment of the Chinese in the Rape of Nanking?
For people who spend their time blaming America first, it's interesting to note how these Leftists refuse to take responsibility for their actions. Their anti-war activism in the 1960's led to the slaughter of millions of Vietnamese and Cambodians from 1975 to 1978. Their "counterculture" has led to a moral decay in this nation.
No, we don't need a lecture about shortcomings from such Leftists who will stoop to the lowest level of street theatre to shock people into their twisted worldview.

Guy Kovner, a reporter for Santa Rosa's Press Democrat wrote the following.
"North Coast fishermen and Rep. Mike Thompson, D-St. Helena, are applauding a House committee chairman's decision to investigate Vice President Dick Cheney's involvement in the deaths of 68,000 migrating chinook salmon in fall 2002."
...While the salmon kill, the largest ever in the West, long has been attributed to Bush administration decisions, a Washington (Com)Post story last month detailed Cheney's successful effort to rewrite federal water policy for alleged political gain.The resulting diversion of water to Klamath basin farmers and ranchers who were battling a drought lowered the river's flow and set the stage for the fish kill.
"Characteristically, Cheney left no tracks," the ComPost reported.
The same day the story was published, Thompson and 35 other Democrats from California and Oregon called for a hearing by the House Natural Resources Committee to zero in on Cheney's actions. A day later, Chairman Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., agreed.
'They say a fish rots from the head down,' Thompson said, applying an old aphorism to the episode that left thousands of rotting salmon carcasses in the lower Klamath. In this case, he said, the head is Cheney's."
Yes, that Mike Thompson, one of the Baghdad Three Stooges (along with David Bonior and Jim McDimwitt) who went to Iraq in 2002 and became propaganda tools for Saddam Hussein. Also noteworthy; one of the other 35 Dimocrats joining Thompson in calling for the hearing into the dead fish was none other than Lynn Woolsey.
Is there any wonder why Congress' approval ratings are the lowest in the history of most polling organizations? Instead of acting as a legislative body, these Democrats are wasting taxpayer dollars to fund their endless investigations into every ridiculous allegation made by their Leftist comrades against the Bush Administration.
We've all known about BDS, known as Bush Derangement Syndrome. Apparently, these Democrats are also consumed with CDS (Cheney Derangement Syndrome).

Pelosi and Sheehan: Comrades about to become rivals?
Now, it appears her farewell was, in her words, a bunch of "horse pucky." She is planning to challenge Nancy Bella-Pelosi for her San Francisco House seat.
AP Yahoo: Sheehan Considers Challenge To Pelosi.
"CRAWFORD, Texas - Cindy Sheehan, the soldier's mother who galvanized the anti-war movement, said Sunday that she plans to run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unless she introduces articles of impeachment against President Bush in the next two weeks.
Sheehan said she will run against the San Francisco Democrat in 2008 as an independent if Pelosi does not seek by July 23 to impeach Bush. That's when Sheehan and her supporters are to arrive in Washington, D.C., after a 13-day caravan and walking tour starting next week from the group's war protest site near Bush's Crawford ranch.
'Democrats and Americans feel betrayed by the Democratic leadership," Sheehan told The Associated Press. "We hired them to bring an end to the war. I'm not too far from San Francisco, so it wouldn't be too big of a move for me. I would give her a run for her money.'"
Cindy Sheehan for Congress, another George $oro$ funded production. Maybe she could start a third party, the Moonbat Party. I'm sure her candidacy will be endorsed by the terrorist regime in Syria, who mourned her loss after her supposed "resignation." Add Hugo Chavez and al-Queda to possible endorsers of a Sheehan candidacy.Oh, but there's one thing Cindy, which you probably aren't bright enough to consider. Should you run against Bella-Pelosi and win in 2008. You will not take office until January 2009. Meanwhile, George W. Bush, the object of your venom, will be leaving office on January 20, 2009. Too late for you to begin impeachment proceedings against him.
Then again, a Sheehan vs. Pelosi fight could be a great chance for Republicans in San Francisco to divide the Leftist vote and take Pelosi's seat.

"The last thing the planet needs is a rock concert," Roger Daltrey, The Who
Former Vice President Al Gore's global fear mongering as "Global Warming" has become another excuse for a bunch of pop stars to hold worldwide concerts to show the world their "concern" for something which they have no control over.
All this on the second anniversary of the July 7th terrorist attacks in London, and in the wake of last week's attempted terror attacks in England.
What is the reason behind Live Earth? It isn't about saving the planet. It's an exercise in self-indulgence. As John Berlau wrote in the American Thinker wrote, Live Earth is "also one last chance for Baby Boomers to relive the "flower power" activism of the '60s."
That sentiment of big charity concerts was cited as far back as 1988 by Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. Speaking about 1985's Live Aid, Peart told Metal Hammer Magazine:
"I get so impatient with the pop side of causes, the whole sensibility of, 'Let's get together and change things' because these people just do not know what they're talking about and don't take the trouble to find out how they can really change something. It's a Sixties mentality -- it had no action then, and has no action now. It's just sound and fury. And, let's be honest, how many of these people are only lending their names as a career move?"
Which brings to my mind a few questions.
* How much pollution was caused by these self-obsessed musicians flying in their private jets to the towns were Live Earth gigs were held?
* How much pollution was caused by the trucks and limousines taking these pop gods and goddesses, their equipment, the stage and lighting to these shows? That also goes for the transportation of those fans attending the concerts.
* How much pollution is being caused by the electricity being used to power the lights, PA systems, amplifiers, etc?
* How much pollution is being caused by fans smoking cigarettes (legal and illegal) in addition to amounts of human methane expelled by thousands of people in several areas around the world?
* Is Live Earth, as well as the global warming farce, a tool by Gore and other Leftists used to distract the world from the real and existing threat of Islamofascist terrorism around the world?
* Is the real reason behind Live Earth to act as a political soapbox for "Chicken Little" Al Gore to begin a possible run for the Democrat Presidential Nomination for 2008?
Ever the narcissist, Gore has spent the last few years slamming the Bush Administration for "playing on our fears" in the War on Terrorism, as well as supposedly misleading America about WMD's in Iraq. However, it is Gore the Hypocrite who made a career scaring and misleading the planet about the supposed global warming threat, where there is not proof that it is caused by man. He has also earned acclaim from Leftists, as well as an Oscar and a wad of cash, all based on fear mongering and lies.
While his son, Albert III, is supposedly in drug treatment after being arrested for drug possession, where is his father when his son needs him?
Al was away from home, promoting and appearing at Live Earth.
And that, my friends, is one more example of how Live Earth is an exercise in self-indulgence.

"Even if we were a "nation of immigrants," it does not explain why we should be against sensible immigration control. And if the open-borders advocates would actually read American history instead of revising it, they would see that the Founding Fathers were emphatically insistent on protecting the country against indiscriminate mass immigration. They insisted on assimilation as a pre-condition, not an afterthought. Historian John Fonte assembled their wisdom:Hey Wells Fargo, Got Assimilation?
* George Washington, in a letter to John Adams, stated that immigrants should be absorbed into American life so that "by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures, laws: in a word soon become one people."

Now the libs, who were rejoicing over getting Libby's scalp, are screaming like a bunch of stuck pigs that the President ended this travesty of justice. One in particular is the Hildebeast, Hillary Rotten Clinton.
"This (the Libby decision) was clearly an effort to protect the White House. ... There isn't any doubt now, what we know is that Libby was carrying out the implicit or explicit wishes of the vice president, or maybe the president as well, in the further effort to stifle dissent." she told AP, regurgitating the Left's talking points.
Well Ms. Clinton, you have one hell of a nerve to criticize Bush's commutation of Libby. At lease George W. Bush didn't pardon FALN terrorists, a cocaine trafficker (Carlos A. Vignali), a pedophile (Mel Reynolds) or a tax evader (Marc Rich). Your pathetic husband, the impeached, perjuring, soft-on-terror, alleged rapist, made those pardons, all for cash to finance the Clinton Liebrary. Say Hillary, who was also on the receiving end of money for arranging the pardon of Almon Glenn Braswell and Vignali? Your (literally) big brother Hugh Rotten, that's who!
And you have the nerve to complain about this White House supposedly "stifling dissent" while you and "Bouncing" Barbara Boxer want to silence talk radio? I order you to find the nearest mirror and take a look at what a hypocrite you are!
