Ron Paul Talks About Bill O'Reilly on Jan Mickelson Show (11-18-11)

War is a Racket.

Written by Major General Smedley Butler who, at the time of his death in 1940, was the most decorated war hero in Marine History.

" War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914.

I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in.

I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.

I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912.

I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interest in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."

With military spending effectively untouchable, the insignificance of the "historic deal" can be put into perspective by downsizing the astronomical and incomprehensible federal budget to a commensurate household budget. By removing eight zeros from the trillions, the federal figures were now easily understood as a budget for the mythical average American family...the Jones's.

Exhibit A: The US Government Budget
Federal Budget: $3,820,000,000,000 (3.82 Trillion)
Income: $2,170,000,000,000 (2.17 Trillion)
New Debt: $1,650,000,000,000 (1.65 Trillion)
Amount Cut: $38,500,000,000 (38.5 Billion) –
about 1% of the total budget.
National Debt Total: $14,271,000,000,000
before this year’s budget.

Exhibit B: The Jones’s Family Budget
Amount of money the Jones’s family spent this year: $38,200
Total income for the Jones’s family this year: $21,700
Amount of new debt added to their credit card this year: $16,500
Outstanding balance on their credit card: $142,710
New outstanding balance on credit card: $159,210

President Obama promised to end the War Racket. Has he? Let me ask you, is BLOOD thicker than water?


Who says Barack Obama doesn't have what it takes to be president? Turns out, he's a distant cousin of both Dick Cheney and George Bush.

The vice president's wife, Lynne Cheney, announced her discovery yesterday while hawking her new book, "Blue Skies, No Fences," on MSNBC. FULL STORY

So you ask, what are my thoughts on this. Well, I do know how families work. If you are a member of my family, depending on which side of the political spectrum your on, you will get my undivided support. Of course that means in plain simple english, my pocket book.

The biggest expense of the Federal Government is the Military. The Democrats claim they want to cut military spending but never do. The Republicans say we need a strong military to protect us.

My question is, are we safer today than we were 60 years ago? How about 50 years ago? 30 years ago? 10 years ago? It seems to me that the more money we spend on Military, the less safe we are.

Now I know that I'm just a simple little house wife, but even I can see that the more we promote global governance, the less safe this country is.

Here's an example to consider. I took my 83 year old mother grocery shopping. When we were at the check out I made a comment to the check out clerk about all the self check out lanes at Meijer. I told her we were helping to protect her job by coming to her lane. That's when she informed us that she really didn't care because she was only going to be there for another couple of weeks.

You see, she joined the Navy. This young lady informed us of how hard it was for her and her husband to afford her college education, child care, and talked about all the student loan debt. On the other hand, she could enlist in the Navy, have her education paid for by TAXPAYERS, child care PAID FOR BY TAXPAYERS, health insurance paid for by TAXPAYERS, housing paid for by TAXPAYERS, and her life would be good.

What I didn't hear was; I want to serve to protect my country.

This young lady went on to explain that her husband has a bad knee so he can't go in. So it's up to her to enlist to get all the benefits that the military has to offer along with the generous singing bonus.

So here's what I have come to conclude.

Democrats offer a free ride to minority groups by way of welfare, Republicans offer a free ride to the more educated by way of military service. Either way, it's a great big burden to the TAXPAYER which is shrinking in todays FREE SOCIETY.

Neither group gives a damn about the Constitution, Bill of Rights, or anything else this country used to stand for. It's all about benefits and who gets what.

Ron Paul brings substance to a poorly moderated debate

Thursday, September 8, 2011 - The Political Pro-Con by Conor Murphy

Although he did not receive nearly as much time as the so called front-runners, Ron Paul was the only substantive candidate on that stage. As always, Paul's arguments against a powerful federal government were well received by the debate audience as they always are. On the immigration issue, Congressman Paul was the only candidate with enough sense to realize that the problem can't be solved unless one looks at the cause, such as special benefits that immigrants receive. He also made the clever argument that if Republicans were against healthcare mandates, then they should be just as philosophically against mandates such as the minimum wage. While other candidates may have received more attention from the media and the debate moderators, none of them were able to refute any of Paul's claims about the economy or civil liberties. Dr. Paul, once again, had something that none of the other candidates had; substance. FULL STORY

Ron Paul Emerges as Formidable GOP Presidential Contender

International Business Times
By David Magee | September 9, 2011 8:53 AM EDT

Something interesting happened in that moment during the Republican presidential debate when Texas Governor and GOP front-runner Rick Perry turned to Ron Paul during a break, continuing a spirited exchange while physically grabbing him and pointing an index finger toward Paul's face.

A picture from the debate showing the episode in which Perry turned to Paul during the break lit up media sites, and the talk began to shift from that debate moment to what Paul stands for and is running for in his presidential bid. Almost overnight, the Texas House Republican became a formidable candidate in the GOP presidential nomination race.

MSNBC's Farce GOP Debate

Let me start by giving the definition of the word FARCE:

farce |färs|
a comic dramatic work using buffoonery and horseplay and typically including crude characterization and ludicrously improbable situations.
• the genre of such works.
• an absurd event : the debate turned into a drunken farce.

Now I could be wrong, but in my opinion, a debate is an event where candidates have the chance to formally discuss their platform for the voting public. Each candidate who has applied for the Job of President should be allowed to answer each question asked so that voters can decide which candidate has the best interest of the country as a whole.

So I say again, MSNBC's debate was a Farce, a joke, an absurd event that focused on only two candidates, the two most liberal candidates the GOP has to offer.

My husband keep track of how many questions were asked of each candidate and how many times they received follow up questions and how many times each candidate was allowed a rebuttal.

The tally was that Perry and Romney together either were asked or allowed to rebut 39 times.

The other six candidates standing on stage together were allowed to speak up 43 times.

Here's the break down.

Cain - 5 questions and broke in once for a total of 6

Huntsman - 7 questions, one rebuttal - total 8

Gingrich - 6 questions - total 6

Santorum - 5 questions 1 rebuttal - total 6

Bachmann - 7 questions, 2 follow up questions, 1 rebuttal - total 10

Paul - 5 direct questions, 1 follow up question, 4 rebuttals - total 9

Romney - 9 questions, 3 follow up questions, 3 rebuttals - total 15

Now the son of the Liberal MSNBC

Rick Perry - 10 questions, 6 follow up questions, 6 rebuttals - total 24

MSNBC's post-debate poll...with a deceptive bar graph...

The only thing that impressed me last night was MSNBC did run this ad before and after the debate.

I would like to thank Jarden Home Brands, or Ball®, for responding and taking the time to look at the pictures. I would also like to point out that out of the 7 new cases of jars and lids I purchased this year, I had this problem with only one of the cases.

If you should ever experience this, here's what is recommended by the company.

The sealing problem appears to be the result of a buckled lid. Our home canning lids are made to release the pressure inside the jar that builds up during processing.  This is called “venting” and after the jar is vented, the lid seals, leaving a vacuum.  Occasionally, if the band is screwed down too tightly, the lid seals onto the jar before it has thoroughly vented. When this happens, pressure within the jar builds up causing the lid to buckle. To help prevent this from happening, we recommend screwing the bands down to the point of resistance.
Boiling the lids may also cause buckling. When lids are boiled, the sealing compound may be softened too much. This could cause the jar to seal prematurely. Then, as the jars seals, the lid will buckle. Lids should be placed in a saucepan of water and heated until hot (180°F).
A rapid drop in the temperature of a pressure canner may also cause buckling. For this reason, we recommend allowing the canner to cool naturally.
In addition, excess air in the jar may also cause the lids to buckle. Use a non metallic utensil to remove excess air from jars before sealing. Accurate headspace is important and the appropriate amount should be used for each food type.


I have always relied on BALL to provide me with the best canning supplies. I have never had a problem with the lids until this year. I don't know if BALL is OUTSOURCING the manufacturing of the lids or not, but just take a look at these pictures of the jars I processed today and tell me if this is acceptable to you?

Ok, I guess you get the idea. I do have more pictures and could go on and on and on.

You know, I'm just a simple housewife who want's to do what's right for my family. I want to know who grew the food, (Me and my friend) I want to know who handles the food, and I want LIDS that seal. Am I asking for to much in this NEW GLOBLE WORLD that we live in?

Manufacturing Employers Can't Find Skilled Workers To Hire!

Gentex Corporation
Date: August 31, 2011 1:06:34 PM GMT-04:00

I saw this on the news last night and became so angry that I decided to let you know the real reason why we have so many unemployed in this state and so many companies looking for people to fill positions.

"And Gentex has jobs it can’t fill. More than 200 of them. And it plans to add another 1,150 in the next five years."

“I think part of it is the mindset on manufacturing”, Los said. “People grow up and when you go home to mom and dad and say – hey – I’m going to go work in manufacturing, they’re kind of like oh – couldn’t find a real job somewhere?”

“When you’re at a cocktail party, do you want to say – my kid is going to Brown, or my kid is going to a technical school?” said Jeff Joerres, CEO of Manpower Group.

My younger brother ( 41 years old ) would love to fill one of the positions open at this company or any company. He is a skilled welder that the STATE OF MICHIGAN and MANPOWER has barred from getting any job. 

This was taken from the Habeas Appeal that the Michigan Court of Appeals Denied;

c. Your Applicant was adjudged to have 2 prior admissible drunken driving charges in his life, despite the fact that one of them had been when he was a Minor in 1987, was not admissible before the Courts upon his second violation within 7 years in 1990, thus your Applicant was therefore not penalized under the 5 year suspension for second offense in 7 years as applicable in 1990.  This was done without any disclosure of the statute which pierces the separation of Actions under Minor Laws from Standard Criminal Law, and ;
d. Your Applicant was not informed by Counsel (Joseph Whetstone (Bar Number P-22235), the Constitutional Law Center, 1221 McKay Tower, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503) at the time of his Plea agreement that he possessed protections from retroactive laws as a matter of his Right to a Stable Government and Laws pursuant to Applicant’s Right to a Republican Form of Government (Article 4 section 4 Constitution of the United States of America (1787), 

c.  Your Applicant has only recently discovered his Right to a Stable Government ad Laws in keeping with Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution of the United States of America (1787), as revealed by the Concurring opinion of Judge Brickley of the Supreme Court of Michigan in, Evert Romein v. General Motors Corporation, 462 N.W.2d 555, 436 Mich. 515 (1990) (infra), and has immediately sought to exercise his due diligence to assert his new found Right and obtain restoration of his antecedent, in perpetuum, and fundamental Liberties.

When Michigan passed Heidi's Law on DUI's, the courts violated the Constitutional Right to;

 49.  Under your Applicant’s Right to a Republic subject to temporal limitations of its Legislative Powers, that which was forgiven your Applicant in the past and agreed to be in the past; such as Applicant’s Minor Act of Drunk driving in 1987, and inadmissible in at the time of his First Adult Drunk Driving charge in 1990, and that First offense being forgiven 10 years later in the year 2000 due to the 10 year statute of limitations existing at that time and at least 6 years prior to the enactment of Heidi’s Law; Applicant existed for 7 years with a clean slate between himself and the PEOPLE of Michigan, by agreement of the PEOPLE of Michigan through their laws, and cannot be dragged back in by mere alteration of statutes of limitation for non-expunged or non-forgiven acts.
 50.  Your Applicant asserts that the application of Heidi’s Law in this case breeched that societal agreement and legal status of the Applicant.  It violated his Constitutional, Ninth, and Tenth Amendment protected Right to a stable government and a system of stable laws which is provided for by his Right to a Republican form of government bound to Temporal Legislative Limitations.
51. The Michigan Supreme Court confirms this fundamental Right to, and aspect of, a Republican form of Government guaranteed in the United States Constitution Article 4 Section 4, and states that retroactive Legislation needs to be checked by this argument which patches the wide hole in ex post facto argument, in order to restore and maintain the Republic:

Troubled though I am by the 1987 amendments at issue here, reaching back as they do to rewrite the past by altering the past consequences of past transactions, the lamentable failure of the United States Supreme Court to articulate any discernible limits on the constitutionality of retroactive … legislation …
                        *                                    *                                    *
The threat that retroactive legislation poses to our system of republican government should, in my judgment, be taken very seriously. The alarm has been sounded by Professor Julian N. Eule, in his recent article Temporal limits on the legislative mandate: Entrenchment and retroactivity, 1987 Am B Found Res J 379. I write separately primarily to amplify Professor Eule's message.
“Regarding the current state of the law, Professor Eule neatly sums up the sad state of affairs as follows:
Efforts to locate limits on retroactivity in the due process clauses of the fifth and fourteenth amendments, although once viewed as promising, seem to have fallen on hard times. The resurrection of the contract clause has not been paralleled under the due process provisions. The occasional noises emanating from the Court, designed to remind us that the route is not foreclosed, have a hollow ring to them. In Usery v Turner Elkhorn Mining Co [428 U.S. 1; 96 S Ct 2882; 49 L Ed 2d 752 (1976)], for example, Justice Marshall, writing for the Court, concluded … with the statement: "It does not follow, however, that what Congress can legislate prospectively it can legislate retrospectively."
                        *                                    *                                    *
“The Framers were not blind to the citizenry's need for some security from the "fluctuating policy" of successive legislatures. It was to fulfill this need, said Madison, that the contract and ex post facto clauses were written into the Constitution. Conflicting lessons can be drawn from the inclusion of these restraints. They may alternatively be viewed as limited sanctuaries from the otherwise unfettered authority of legislatures to undo the policy judgments of their predecessors or as compelling evidence of the disfavored status of retrospective lawmaking. It is the choice between these competing visions -- rather than the debate over natural law -- that ultimately divided Justices Iredell and Chase in Calder v Bull [3 U.S. (3 Dall) 386; 1 L Ed 648 (1798)].
            *                        *                  *
“For Justice Iredell this ended the constitutional inquiry since he believed that the legislature's power necessarily included all that was not expressly denied to it.
            *                        *                  *
“Iredell was not blind to the possibilities for abuse, but he contended that such risks had been undertaken willingly by the people when they delegated authority to their agents.
            *                        *                  *
Justice Chase viewed the people's grant as more restrained. Rejecting Iredell's assumption that power not denied was conferred, Chase maintained instead that power not conferred was denied. A determination of what authority the people had entrusted to their agents (through the federal or state constitution) could not be made without an understanding of the principles of a republican form of government. Legislation inconsistent with those principles should be viewed as beyond the scope of the grant. The inapplicability of the ex post facto clause did not foreclose the possibility that the power exercised by the … legislature was one that the people … had not conferred.
            *                        *                  *
Chase's thesis was not that government could not be given the authority to act retrospectively, but that the conferral of power to act at odds with republican principles should not be "presumed."
            *                        *                  *
“The voters do not delegate authority to rewrite history. Their earlier agents exercised legitimate authority when they enacted legislation. While such efforts may be repealed, this is not the same as retrospective eradication. A decision that bills defeated by prior legislatures can now be enacted and treated as if they had been enacted earlier arguably runs afoul of this same principle. The then-authorized representatives made a choice, and this decision demands recognition as the choice of the polity for that point in time. Each set of elected officials ought to be viewed as endowed by their sovereign with the mandate to make policy choices only within a bracketed temporal zone. Just as the delegation of authority does not encompass incursions into the domain of legislatures yet to come, it does not contemplate contravening the sanctity of time past.
            *                        *                  *
“While I contend that the prohibition against entrenchment and retroactivity are both products of the temporal boundaries the electorate affixes to its mandate, I do not pretend that these two borders are drawn to serve identical ends. I do believe they manifest a common interest in affording each generation of voters the opportunity to determine for itself, through its representatives, the rules that will govern its daily life. The two constraints, however, satisfy different -- and at times conflicting -- human needs. The postmandate restriction protects flexibility. It preserves the polity's right to change its mindThe premandate limitation, on the other hand, offers stability. It enables the polity to alter its directionwithout unduly undermining the security we all find so necessary. This means that the choices of our representatives can be relied on for the temporal realm in which these agents legitimately exercised authority. No more is guaranteed, but no less is tolerable. [Eule, (supra) , pp 441-446. Emphasis in original.]
“The Legislature in this case did not merely change the future consequences of past acts, … rather, the Legislature turns back the clock to redefine rights and liabilities enjoyed and owing in the past, notwithstanding the fact that those rights and liabilities had already been determined by an earlier and different body of agents of an earlier majority, determinations which the Legislature in 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1986 declined to changeThe legislation in this case violates the temporal limits of the 1987 Legislature.

So when I read articles such as this one on Fox and watch this Propaganda on TV, when I know that there are so many people willing to fill those jobs except they all use Manpower Group who will not even take an application from a convicted felon, no matter what the charge, and most companies have a "NO FELON" rule, is it any wonder they can't find "QUALIFIED WORKERS". 

My brother didn't get his last DUI because he caused an accident. He did get his last DUI because the Rockford police were stationed across the street from the Catholic Church who was holding a Beer Tent fundraiser and the officer followed my brother Alex Sasak until he was almost home. Then made an excuse about a tail light being out to pull him over. I guess the officer had a quota to fill.

Not only did this cause Alex Sasak to loose his good paying job, but he has lost his home to foreclosure, his life and everything he has worked all his life for. Do you think he may be just a little bit angry? I know I am. 

There was no harm done to anyone, no personal damage, no injury to anyone, yet Alex Sasak is suffering the loss of everything just because an officer needed to meet his quota of tickets for the month. Well, THANK YOU MICHIGAN HIGH ARCHY. You did your jobs well to take the middle class and make them pay for your high priced Union Public Employees. I guess if you can't balance the budget one way, you will always find another to do it.

Muskegon County Transit Agency Demands $300 to Reveal CEO's Salary

In 2009, the Michigan Department of State Police wanted to charge the Mackinac Center for Public Policy $6.8 million for a Freedom of Information Act regarding the state’s handling of federal homeland security grant money from 2002 to 2009.

But not all eyebrow raising costs for FOIA replies come with such a hefty price tag.

Consider the County of Muskegon’s reply to the Mackinac Center’s FOIA request for the CEO’s salary and benefits for the past two years at the Muskegon Area Transit System.

The County of Muskegon said they no longer had the 2009-10 information and the 2010-11 information would cost $300. FULL STORY

Gold Beyond US$1,800 Level – What Do Jim Rogers, Gerald Celente, Marc Faber Say?

By MyLoansConsolidated:  Jim Rogers, investor and author, has always warned the masses that gold price is going to go up despite what other economists say that gold is currently in a bubble. He made it loud and clear that this is not a bubble. Gerald Celente, CEO of Trends Research,  has never trusted the US dollar and has suggested people invest in gold. Recently he even tells Russia Today that the US dollar is not even worth the paper it is written on. Marc Faber believes that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke will continue doing the only thing that he knows best – printing more money. This will only drive the price of the yellow metal even higher and higher.
The past few days the world panicked following the Aug 2, US debt ceiling lift, Dow Jonesplunge and gold price increase. Jim Rogers believes if people keep panicking like this thanthe economy is for sure going to go down. “If we have more panic this week, then everything is going to go down, but you should probably step in and buy commodities. If they do collapse, with everything else I would prefer to buy agricultures. I said before if gold goes down for some reason or silver, then I might buy silver,” Rogers said. With the gold price being in a rally, Rogers is playing cautious about buying into it.
Meanwhile, Gerald Celente predicted this collapse accurately in his latest Trends Journal published on the 13th of June. He has always made it clear that the economic recovery that US media experts are so eagerly promoting is bogus. Celente also predicted that a global economic collapse was imminent. “The economy is on the threshold of calamity… another violent financial episode is looming,” he wrote. And he was right. The collapse is happening right now!  FULL STORY

Ron Paul: "Gold Is Not A Bubble"

REAL CLEAR POLITICS: ""What's happening today and what I see is such a serious thing is I think what we're dealing with is the end of the dollar reserve standard. That's a worldwide phenomenon. It's not just for the United States, just think of how many dollars we've exported. How many people hold dollars. If this dollar is in big trouble, which is what I think is the problem, I mean this is not just a minor problem. This is probably a bigger problem than the world has faced before" FULL STORY AND VIDEO.

Gerald Celente on The Tommy Schnurmacher Show - CJAD 800 - 04 Aug 2011

The collapse: Celente predicted it would happen. It's happening!

INTERNATIONAL. On June 13th, Trends
Journal subscribers and the global media received this Trend Alert®: “Collapse It’s Coming! Are You Ready?”

In that Trend Alert®, Gerald Celente accurately predicted that a global economic collapse was imminent. “The economy is on the threshold of calamity … another violent financial episode is looming,” he wrote.

Celente warned that the trends of the Summer of 2011 paralleled those in play during August of 2007, trends that had culminated in the “Panic of ’08.”

He dismissed the assurances of world leaders that policies were in place to mitigate the escalating European and US debt crises.

He discounted “media experts” promoting an imaginary recovery or debating the prospects of a double-dip recession.

It was all bogus. Those assurances were hot air, and the “recovery” talk and “double-dip recession” debates were just red herrings. FULL STORY


Here is a development in Tacoma WA (Salishan) that was built for Illegal Immigrants! 1325 Homes created! Refugee Pay offers them $2642 per month in SSI benefits, plus Food Stamps, plus Section 8 Housing. You will see new expensive cars in this video. Wouldn't you like to get a free ride like the illegals?

Ok, my sister pointed me to this Snopes article on this video.

You will have to read the "Claim" "False" to determine where the TRUTH IN THE MIDDLE lies.


Claim: The average income in here is about $13,000 per year, not including welfare, not including Social Security refugee pay, not including Women, Infants and Children."

Now read the False: carefully to see what they deny and what they choose not to address.

False: The $13,000 figure is based on out-of-date 2000 Census data. (Hmmmmm, so what's the up-to-date Census data?) "We do not know of anyone who gets something called 'Social Security refugee pay.'" ( Well, I don't personally know of anyone getting it either, but then I'm just a simple AMERICAN housewife.)

So, if anyone out there can produce the evidence of the TRUTH or LACK OF TRUTH in this video, please do.

I also googled "social security refugee pay" and here's what I came up with.

I just received this email from one of my readers. These are all good questions people should be asking.

"Someone needs to dig in and find out WHO really
financed the project -- Snopes ducks this question
merely by stating that the $ were not from SSA.
10:1 it WAS ALL financed by government funds though,
probably 95% federal from somewhere.

As to income, Snopes again ducks the issue -- if the
average income is even close to 13-15K, HOW are these people living there? What ARE the actual qualification requirements to obtain housing?? IS every one (or most) of those families receiving a Section 8 rent SUBSIDY of $2600+ / mo????

Note a similar thing has happened for years in New York City -- don't want to "hurt" the landlords so they put up homeless in 3-star hotels, and posh downtown real estate rentals, etc., all paid by the state/city (probably all with federal backstopping...)

EVEN IF IT'S NOT ALL ILLEGAL REFUGEES: Snopes of course utterly fails to address/refute: alleged no-cost landlord maintenance of the properties, lawn mowing, etc. the intent of building of the school, etc.

I wonder if the landlord graciously picks up utilities as well (water, electric, gas, etc.) as part of the package???"

Freddie Mac seeks $1.5 billion from taxpayers

(Reuters) - Mortgage finance giant Freddie Mac FMCC.OB said on Monday it would need to ask for an additional $1.5 billion from taxpayers due to losses stemming from weak housing markets.
The company reported a comprehensive loss in the second quarter of $1.1 billion. Despite income of $1 billion, the company registered a net worth deficit of $1.5 billion.
That is in part because it was required to pay dividends worth $1.6 billion to the Treasury. As a result, the cost to taxpayers of its rescue declined by $100 million this quarter. FULL STORY

Tender Juicy Pork or Lamb Chops.

I was going to save this for the cook book I'm writing but, I will share.

Depending on how many people you are feeding, let's say you have 4 chops. 2 eggs, salt and pepper and beat the eggs.

BUT first you must season the chops. Now you can do this the day before and refrigerate over night which is best, but if you forget you can do this 4 hours before.

I like to use fresh crushed garlic but you can buy the crushed in a jar from the store as well. Take about a teaspoon for each chop and spread it around so the whole chop is covered. Then sprinkle Rosemary and even Paprika and a pinch of cayenne pepper on each chop.

Take about 4 slices of sourdough bread and 4 slices of vienna bread and toast it. For those of you who are doing the gluten free diet, you can substitute) I like to toast it twice but it depends on how hot your toaster gets. You want the bread golden brown but also dry all the way through. Then put it in the blender on high until you have bread crumbs. Add 2 Tlb. parmesan cheese to bread crumbs.

Dip chops in egg mixture, then in bread crumbs, and lay them on a cutting board until you have all the chops coated. While doing this, you want to have a cast iron fry pan with about a 1/4" olive oil and 2 tlb. butter heating up. When you have all the chops coated, coat them again and fry. You can do this with pork or lamb chops.

You’ll have to watch this to believe it.

In a harsh criticism of House Republicans and think tanks critical of Rep. John Boehner’s plan to raise the debt limit, the 2008 Republican Presidential nominee, who chose Tea Party darling Sarah Palin for VP, said about this about a faction of his own party:

This makes me question Sarah Palin's support for this man. FULL STORY

Threat Of Right-Wing Extremism In U.S. Debated By Feds, Analysts

"Right-wing extremist activity increased in 2008 and 2009 and has stayed persistent in 2010 and 2011, says former DHS domestic terror analyst Daryl Johnson, who founded a consulting firm that tracks extremist activity. He produced the 2009 report that created a political firestorm after it warned of a surge in right-wing extremism due to the election of the country's first black president and the economic recession."

Now I'm just your average housewife, but because I am a member of We The People Foundation, A Ron Paul supporter, A member of Fully Informed Jury Association and a member of the Tea Party, I am on the Southern Poverty Law Center List and the Huff Post thinks I'm a THREAT to the NEW SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

And here all the time I just thought that supporting the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES was the right thing to do. Guess that just goes to show you how WRONG a simple housewife can be.

Court workers investigated for lying, misuse of vehicles

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Prosecutors say a criminal investigation is underway against juvenile court workers accused of misusing county vehicles and taking part in recreational activities when they were supposed to be working. FULL STORY

Maybe it's time we re-think this whole concept of Probation. If a person commits a crime, we send them to jail. It used to be that once they served their time, they were free to go. Not anymore. Now, when a person gets out of jail, they usually have another couple of years of jumping through hoops at the whim of a probation officer. At any time, this probation officer can cite them for a violation which sends that person back to jail and starts probation all over again. I think they call it JOB SECURITY.

Cleaning up Muskegon County Justice System
These are not isolated cases, this behavior has become the norm through out government today. Especially in our justice system where you, the employer have no rights from the moment you walk into that court building.

Turning Hard Times into Good Times

This morning, while scanning the news, I found this Press Release by Reuters.

The Greater Depression. Can a Gold Standard Put America Back on Track? - Jay Taylor Interviews Gerald Celente and Lewis Lehrman FULL STORY

Gerald Celente is an American trend forecaster, publisher of the Trends Journal, business consultant and author who makes predictions about the global financial markets and events of historical importance.

Lewis Lehrman, along with Ron Paul, were the only members of President Reagan's Gold Commission to advocate a return to a gold-backed dollar.

Lewis Lehrman was presented the National Humanities Medal at the White House in 2005 for his work in American history.

It has taken me many years of reading and listening to Business and Investment news to finally understand the economy and how we as a country have gotten ourselves into such a mess. You don't have to be a genius, just start paying attention and apply some common sense. After all, I'm just a house wife. I don't have a college education, or any alphabet letters after my name.

I do know the simple basics that if all you have is $10, you can't spend $12. Oh sure, if you have a credit card, and you can afford to make the minimum payment each month, I guess you can spend up to the limit on the card. But then your payment only covers the interest, so you either get the limit raised or you must figure out how to pay down the balance which only goes up each month because you can only afford to pay on the interest.

This is where our country is today. Obama want's the Congress to approve raising the debt limit on the credit card, but we are only making interest payments on what's owed right now.

When we as individuals do this, we end up in bankruptcy or, if we use common sense, we STOP SPENDING, split the credit card payment up into weekly payments, and pay a little extra on it. That way, we cut the interest and start paying on the principle. And when the credit card is paid off, start putting that amount of money in a savings plan.

I did listen to Jay Taylor's show from yesterday and thought I would share it with the rest of you.

Once Upon A Time...

Once Upon A Time in the United States, starting a business was a simple thing. If you believed in yourself, the product or service you produced, all you had to do was hang up a sign and go to work.

Today, you must fill out a bunch of paperwork, register with the STATE, acquire an IRS ID number and apply for a Federal Government Grant just to start a small business.

It could be just me, but does anyone else see something wrong with this picture?

My how times have changed, or have they?

Today, it's all about jobs, debt, and who offers the best benefits. Being your own boss today means you are required by law to pay minimum wage, offer health care, and a pension plan (401K's tied to the stock market). Pay half of your employee's Social Security, Medicade/Medicare and Un-employment Benefits. Well, that just makes me want to start a business today, how about you?

Or, you can find a job within the government somewhere, and have all the benefits as well as a upper middle class pay check. Is this the new American Dream?

If working for government is the new american dream, who's going to be there to support this system? Good question. I haven't found the answer to that one yet, maybe some of you more educated people out there can help me understand this part of economics. After all, I'm just a simple house wife who can't deficit spend. I don't have a printing press that allows me to just print up dollar bills to loan out at extortion rates of interest.

I keep getting emails asking me to support our military. I do consider myself to be a very patriotic American. If we were really at war with another country for a good reason, I would be first in line to support our tropes. But, we have not been in a declared war since WWII. And prior to WWII, we never had military bases all over the globe, 130+ countries and counting.

I happened to meet and talk with a young man of 22 this summer, who had just served three years in the army. He signed up because... the army offered $15.000 as a signing bonus and will pay for college education. He felt his brother was foolish for signing up for six years in order to get the $40,000 signing bonus. This young man said his FREEDOM wasn't worth the extra money. During his three years in the army, he never went to any part of the world where we are engaged in a military action.

Now, if we are in over 130 country's, and we are supporting the military bases there, all the military personal and their families, how many people do you suppose that puts on the payroll for military spending? ARE WE SAFER??? The more we expand our military, the less safe we are it seems. But then again, I'm just a house wife who remembers when you could get on a ferry boat in Muskegon, Michigan, cross Lake Michigan to Milwaukee Wisconsin without having to show ID just to be in the waiting area.

I certainly never thought I would live to see the day that I would have to allow a stranger to touch my body just to fly on an airplane to another US state. ARE WE SAFER??? Or are we just so stupid that we will allow government employees to sexually assault us because they need to create jobs to replace the manufacturing jobs lost due to the heavy tax/regulate mentality of the COMMUNIST in the United States today.

Someone this past weekend sent me one of those "Support our Military" emails, and I brought these facts up to her. She came back and said that we should re-instate the draft and get rid of these incentives to join the military.

Ok, who among you have daughters, Granddaughters, nieces, ect...ect? Now that the Women's Libbers have successfully gotten girls out on the battle field, who among you are willing to have your little princes drafted?

Can't you just see the Prom Queen from your local high school giving up lipstick and shopping for camo and an automatic rifle? Well, I can tell you that non of the GIRLS in my family have any desire to go into combat. How about your GIRLS?

But then again, Hitler and Stolen as well as Lenin did get women into combat, so why not Socialist America? After all, aren't we ALL patriotic?

Do I get paid?

No, I don't get paid for reveling Papa's Perfect Poop. It's just the best that I have found and thought I would share it with you.

I have a SECRET!

Many people have commented on the ROSE picture that I chose for my blog header. Well, that is a rose that I have in my garden and is one of my favorites because of it's Monet color. And the fact that I have always been impressed by the french IMPRESSIONEST painter, Claude Monet.

Monet |mōˈnā|
Monet, Claude(1840–1926), French painter. A founding member of the Impressionists (his painting Impression: Sunrise [1872] gave the movement its name), his fascination with the play of light on objects led him to produce series of single subjects painted at different times of day and under different weather conditions, such as the Haystacks series (1890–91) and Rouen Cathedral (1892–95). Among his most famous paintings are the Waterlilies series, which he began in 1899 and which occupied him for the rest of his life.

I have grown roses almost all of my life. Go figure. Could it be because my name is ROSE?

Anyway, for those of you out there who are interested in what is the very best food to grow healthy roses, I found the answer. I struggled like most of you with dealing with black spot, mildew, and other nasty things that seem to attack rose bushes.

Then one day, the IRS sent my husband to prison for the misdemeanour of willful failure to file an IRS FORM. There he meet Michael. Michael, who's mother came to America from Jamaica, grew up in the south and worked in the field's for farmers. It was Michael who told my husband that if I wanted to grow the best roses, I needed to get Guano, or commonly known as Bat Poop.

I went in search of Bat Poop and found right here in Muskegon County, Papa's Perfect Poop, imported from South America.

I have tried all kinds of fertilizers and have never had one that would keep the plant so healthy that the only thing you have to battle is the Japanese Beetle. Just take a look at what healthy roses look like when fed once a week with a LITTLE PAPA'S PERFECT POOP.

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea. I have over 30 rose bushes and I'm sure that you only need a couple of examples here. Unlike the politicians in Washington DC, I know that you are intelligent enough to figure this out for yourself.

Here's what I do. If mixing 1 gal at a time, I use 6 tlb. of Papa's Perfect Poop in a 1 gal milk jug. Add HOT HOT water and let sit for 24 hours. Then give each plant about 1 cup once a week.

In my case, I use a 5 gal bucket and put 2 cups of Papa"s Perfect Poop in, like I said, I have 30 rose bushes to feed. Good Luck and HAPPY GARDENING.

Casey Anthony Verdict Aftermath!

As I listen to the Media Pundit's and read the news articles on Casey Anthony's verdict, I can see just how effective the lack of education is in this country. According to what I was taught in grade school back in the late 50's, the jury came back with the only verdict they could. But look what one Orlando real estate broker had to say.

As the sentence was announced, Orlando real estate broker Flora Reece stood outside the courthouse with a sign that read "Arrest the Jury."

NOTE: The Prosecution did not give the jury any evidence that Casey Murdered her child.

Is there someone out there who can PLEASE give Flora Reece a copy of the William Penn case? Poor Flora needs some real education in the function of the Jury system and stop making such a fool of herself in public.

Casey Anthony is a very emotionally troubled young lady. Maybe some day, with the proper help, she will be able to tell the truth about what happened to that beautiful little girl. Maybe the police will come up with some evidence to prove what happened to this child. But sending death threats to her parents, at a time when they are so torn apart by Casey, only shows what a GODLESS society this country has become.

Until you have walked in their shoes, until you have had to deal with your own emotionally disturbed child, one who will cut your heart out, slice it, dice it and hand it back to you on a plater, you should not judge.

We as parents, those of us who CHOOSE TO BE PARENTS, love our children. We care for them and raise them the best we know how. But God doesn't give us a guarantee that evil forces won't interfere in their developmental years leaving you with a Casey Anthony.

I'd like to know where our Liberal Media is in this debate. After all, isn't it a WOMAN'S RIGHT to CHOOSE? What difference does it make if you kill the child in the womb or out? If it becomes inconvenient to be a mother, what difference does it make when the child is exterminated?

What I see going on is a bunch of HYPOCRITICAL PEOPLE screaming for blood, just as in the Bible, the POLITICAL MASSES allowed Barabbas to go free and Crucified Jesus for not paying TAXES to Caesar. Who was it that Crucified Jesus? The Highh Priest Caiaphas, and the Scribes and Elders who REPRESENTED the Jewish People. The same people who derived their INCOME from the taxes collected.

Caiaphas (Greek: Καϊάφας) in the New Testament, was the Roman-appointed Jewish high priest who is said to have organized the plot to kill Jesus. Caiaphas is also said to have been involved in the Sanhedrin trial of Jesus.[1]

Media of the time...scribe |skrīb|
1 historical a person who copies out documents, esp. one employed to do this before printing was invented.
• informal often humorous a writer, esp. a journalist.
2 (also Scribe) Judaism an ancient Jewish record-keeper or, later, a professional theologian and jurist.
3 another term for scriber .

• (often elders) a leader or senior figure in a tribe or other group : a council of village elders.
• an official in the early Christian Church, or of various Protestant Churches and sects.

William Penn
Judge vs. jury
During the trial, the jury and the crowds in the courthouse began to appreciate William Penn’s defense that by merely speaking on a street corner he had not violated a law. The Crown produced no substantive evidence against him. When Penn interrupted the trial with questions and objections, he was removed from the presence of the jury and confined in an enclosed corner of the room where he could not confront witnesses accusing him of preaching to the Quakers or ask questions of the witnesses who testified against him.

At the conclusion of the trial the jury retired to deliberate its verdict. Upon the jury’s return, foreman Edward Bushnell reported to the court simply that the jury found that William Penn had spoken on the street, which was no violation of the law at all.

The judge was outraged and overcome with anger. He commanded the jury to retire again and render the verdict of guilt. Nevertheless, the jury returned and again stated that the verdict was that Mr. Penn had simply spoken on a street and not violated any law. The indignant judge confined the jury “to the hole,” in Newgate Prison, and instructed the foreman Bushnell that the jury would remain in the hole without food or water until a proper verdict was rendered.
