Driving liberals, dhimmis and illegal alien apologists absolutely insane since 2005...

No Thanks, Connolly

By Greg L | 9 March 2009 | Gerry Connolly, Illegal Aliens, US Congress, Prince William County | 37 Comments

To the astonishment of the liberal wing-nut crowd, Supervisor Corey Stewart is not impressed with Gerry Connolly obtaining a bailout pork-fest earmark for Supervisor Frank Principi’s employer, the “Greater Prince William Community Health Center.”  They’re about the only ones so clouded by their loving devotion to Maximum Leader Urkel Obama as to be utterly incapable of recognizing this one example, among hundreds, of the politically-motivated wastes of taxpayer dollars that have become such a hallmark of the current political reality.  They should be grateful that Chairman Stewart was relatively restrained in his criticism, as the full story would only terribly embarass them and their ridiculous ideology of wealth redistribution further.

This health clinic is another one of those largely government-funded “charitable” organizations that undermine the very notion of charity.  Charity is a voluntary gift from the goodness of our hearts.  For Christians, it’s a way to thank the Lord for the gifts He’s given us and as part of our stewardship of the things He’s temporarily entrusted to us.  What charity is not, without a doubt, is having wealth confiscated by your government under penalty of criminal prosecution and handed over to whatever the government thinks is the worthy cause that you’re not voluntarily supporting to their satisfaction.  By turning an act of kindness, or perhaps a fulfillment of a religious calling into another instance of forced wealth distribution, government insinutates itself into our acts of goodness, reducing what we can voluntarily give so it can give it for us, often to things we wouldn’t want it to.  Ultimately, government is the antithesis of charity, and a grave risk to it.

So what has our government decided to bestow your wealth upon in the eleventh hour of a pork-fest frenzy, without any opportunity for you to offer or decline your consent?  This clinic is ostensibly an effort to help the poor and uninsured.  A significant proportion of the poor and uninsured this clinic happens to serve are illegal aliens, which obtain your taxpayer-funded support because this clinic steadfastly refuses to ask people requesting services what their legal staus happens to be. If government was doing this without a convenient charity to be the intermediary, providing these services would be a violation of both state and federal law. This charity, and Frank Principi’s employer by the way, provides the necessary indirection to make this provision of taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens possible.

By providing material support to illegal aliens, this organization helps to encourage more illegal aliens to come to Woodbridge.  Gerry Connolly doesn’t seem to mind, nor does Frank “I oppose illegal immigration, really” Principi. Not much of a surprise.  The only “surprise” here is that Chairman Stewart didn’t use this opportunity to unload more on the ridiculousness of this stupid idea that Connolly has somehow done us a favor here.

Connolly hasn’t helped us.  Not one bit.

    Don’t forget to call Webb and Warner tommorow and ask them to support E-Verify.

    Frankly its pure insanity if they don’t

    Circulating the ‘Net

    By Tim Wood

    I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

    Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten - fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two. We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back. Why? We learn just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no Real oversight by anyone, has ‘loaned’ two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the 700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of ‘we the people,’ who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not. We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why? We have intentionally dumbed down our schools,ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, and school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why? We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman). Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago? We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose? Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government, our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about) the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x ten. And we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so. And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their Chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary. Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders. No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more important. Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: change. Why? I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now! This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again. That is only the beginning. I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, Moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his ‘brown shirts’ would bully them into submission. And then, he was duly elected to office, a full- throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department-by-department, person-by-person, bureaucracy-by-bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think.
    How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.
    He did it with a compliant media. Did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and …. change. And the people surely got what they voted for. (Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.) Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though.
    Don’t forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe… It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years ‘a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency’ it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.
    As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.
    Some people scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe, and why I believe it. I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am.

    We must vote out the incumbents. We must impose our own term limits. All politicians must be limited to one term in any office. We must remove the incentives and opportunities for corruption. Campaign contributions buy politicians. Our republic has faltered. Our “representatives” no longer represent us. They consider us to be stupid children, to be lied to during elections and mollified with welfare checks and pork projects. Nobody complains when the earmarks come home. Democracies die when politicians figure out that they can vote themselves whatever they want. I’s up to us.

    WE THE PEOPLE does NOT equal special interest groups! Special interest groups are just that….special groups with a “special agenda” (only meant for the “groupies” of that group. Therefore, groups like la raza….they only care about latinos! True Americans KNOW that it DOES NOT MATTER what your ethnicity/culture is….policy should be made to serve ALL PEOPLE regardless of ethnicity/culture. This is what the “melting pot” is all about. Diversity is nonsense! In a financial setting diversity is fine…why?….because money is paper. Paper does NOT have an agenda based on where it comes from. People, on the other hand, do have agendas! Diversity equals division based on ones ethnicity/culture. This is not unity! Our country has one language, one flag, and one set of principles for a reason….UNITY! If special interest groups are allowed to overrule WE THE PEOPLE…we have a major problem on our hands due to competing interests, lack of unity, and most importantly…lack of loyalty to OUR COUNTRY.

    On the larger issues …

    I’m disgusted by the way the Democrats use the “stimulus” bill to put all their want list in. But that’s typical. That’s politics.

    I’m disgusted with the minority loan programs and the way we codify “color” and “race” with such things. This is a long-term issue, which is mitigating over time.

    But the really large issue - the one that it is critical that we understand is -


    Sometimes it’s good to deregulate.

    And frequently it’s not.

    Particularly when we the people will be getting the bill at the end of the day.

    The GOP brainlessly deregulated. There’s blame to go around on both sides. But it seems critical to me that “conservatives” be able to face up to the fact that their whoile raison d’ete for the past 30 years or so has crumbled.

    Within a capitalist framework, government regulation of industry is necessary in order to keep the rich from acquiring all the capital. Obviously we don’t want to swing too far in the other direction either - socialism does not work.

    But government by simplistic maxims does not work. Lower taxes, higher taxes, less regulation, more regulation - none of these are inherently good or bad.

    Bush F-ed up and he f-ed up real bad. He was an absolutely terrible President.

    And it’s very ironic historically that he was elected by such a slim margin, within the margin of error scientifically - and appointed by the Supreme Court on a partisan 5-4 vote. We almsot avoided this disaster. I’m not at all sure that Gore would have been much of a President. But we certainly wouldn’t be in this mess.

    Most people that I talk to do not want any kind of amnesty, pathway to citizenship, or whatever else the pc crowd wants to call it! The liberal news never presents this position! For those that say…you cannot penalize the children for the mistakes made by the parents. I beg to differ. The children need to KNOW AND UNDERSTAND that what their parents did (being illegal, ID fraud, stealing benefits, etc.) is wrong and that they will not be rewarded for that behavior. This is a great way to teach the children a lesson. If amnesty, pathway to citizenship, etc. were granted, that would teach the children that it is “okay” to do the wrong thing and that is not a good way or the right way to go. Get over the sob stories! They are not based in fact other than the illegal aliens are criminals (ID fraud, stealing benefits, stealing jobs, residing here illegally, aiding and abetting, the list goes on and on).

    Additionally….I am so TIRED of hearing how illegal aliens and/or their supporters are FEARFUL to report crimes! This “excuse” is totally illogical. They wouldn’t report crimes to begin with! Why? They are criminals themselves by being illegal aliens (ID theft, fraud, stealing benefits, etc.). I suppose that a legal bank robber would also be afraid to report crimes too! After all, why would the bank robber want to bring attention onto him/herself by contacting the police! These ridiculous excuses are just that…..EXCUSES based on nonsense!

    did any one make any phone calls when Bush was pushing his stimulus package - all what that did was just prolong the pain that we are going through now.

    How about our spending in Iraq - how much is that going to cost my grand children?

    And no, I do not like the stimulus plan, but give Obama a little break - he just got into office about 40 days ago - so, he cannot be blamed for the fiasco, and if it was easy to fix, it would be fixed already.

    OH YEAH, I did…I left a personal message for Frank Wolf (whom I’ve known for many years) that, if he voted for that “stimulus” package on top of the money Bernacki [sp?] had already printed up for the Wall Street Banks, I was going to send him my kids to raise because I wouldn’t be able to feed, house, and school them after it, and what would follow, created an economy where NOBODY not in the top 1% of US income brackets would be able to survive.

    so, what has Obama done any differently than what Bush was doing back in September?

    Bush says he inherited a Recession from Clinton, well, folks, there is no doubt that Obama has inherited a Depression from Bush.

    There is enough blame to go around to nearly every elected official, and every CEO in the financial industry.

    I do not want my grand children to be paying for this, but I think the smart people know that you need to throw some cash around to get things moving - I think they need to spend some cash, as private business and individuals are not spending.

    President Obama has issued waivers allowing two appointees who were formally registered lobbyists to work for his administration.

    The waivers ensure the two appointees can work for the administration under his executive order on ethics, which was intended to reform the revolving door between K Street and the government.

    The waivers were provided for Jocelyn Frye, director of policy and projects in the Office of the First Lady, and Cecilia Munoz, director of intergovernmental affairs in the executive office of the president. The two waivers were announced on the White House blog Tuesday evening, which said the exceptions were granted under a “public interest” exemption of the executive order on ethics.

    Munoz was a senior vice president for the National Council of La Raza, where she supervised all legislative and advocacy activities on the state and local levels. Munoz was heavily involved in the immigration battles in Congress in recent years, and is now a principal liaison to the Hispanic community for the administration.

    Well, now we have proof positive which public has his interest (Munoz was a senior vice president for the National Council of La Raza). I wonder how long it will be before the government demands deportation of citizens, at least most citizens, back to their ancestral land of origin…Europe.
