Protests, Tshirts and the American Way

[kc_background_pac_1_heading_12]Congress is Missing
in Action,
Where are our Leaders…[/kc_background_pac_1_heading_12]

The United States is on the brink of financial ruin, the dollar is worth less than it was in 2001, more than 24 Million Americans are unable or unwilling to find a job.

We live in a nation where on average there are more murders in our largest cities, than there are on the battlefield in foreign wars.

We are facing the most difficult social and financial situations this nation has ever faced and the news story below, is what congress thinks is the most important thing.

America are you not proud? 

Where have we found our courage?

Perhaps it is time to begin to Recall Senators, Congressman who will not do their duty as prescribed by the
constitution of these United States of America.

Voters, what were you thinking in when you put people like Harry Reid who has betrayed his own party (allegedly) and the people of the United States.

I find it appalling disgusting and evil what the congress thinks is the way to deal with our problems is to make it a felony to protest after allowing the occupy wall-street movement to do what ever they wanted to do but now they want to make it a felony to wear a T shirt that may offend someone?

=====================================

The following News story was sent to us by email, we are providing coverage of this news story included below, the source is Watchdog.net

I find it not only Amazing that congress is so far gone that they are unable to see what is happening in our own nation because allegedly they are so busy amassing wealth that the rest of us will never have the opportunity to achieve, but they want to oppress and to create a nation of slaves.

Imagine an America in which the government can deny protest in any public space it deems fit. Where wearing a dissenting shirt around an elected official could be construed as a felony. Where First-Amendment protections become privileges subjectively doled out by the state. Sadly, that America is pretty much here.

In March, Congress passed HR 347, a bill that limits Americans’ ability to protest in public and on government grounds. Mainstream media didn’t raise peep, but now there’s finally some anger building. The bill, passed almost unanimously, makes it a federal offense punishable by up to ten years in prison to “knowingly” protest in the vicinity of the Secret Service–that is anywhere the Secret Service “is or will be temporarily visiting.”

It also makes many public events impervious to lawful protest. Any “National Security Special Event” (NSSE) requires Secret Service protection. NSSE-designated events have proliferated since 9/11 to include Super Bowls, concerts, campaign events, and now any public event that Very Important People want protest-free.

Most dangerously, it criminalizes protest. Under the bill, “disorderly or disruptive conduct” or activities that “impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions” could warrant felony charges. What constitutes such “disruptive conduct” rests in the eye of the beholder–or the eye of Eric Holder. To put it plainly: the government can decide where and when free speech is allowed and severely prosecute any “disruptive” activity, while we’re confined to “free speech zones.” We can help fix it, however! Join our petition below to protect our speech rights!

PETITION TO CONGRESS: We treasure our first amendment rights of free speech and public assembly! HR 347 limits valid arenas of peaceful public protest, and broadens the government’s ability to curtail civil liberties. We demand that Congress amend the bill to provide clearer language as to what constitutes “disruptions”; to allow for reasonable, peaceful protest at NSSEs and around Secret Service; and to ensure that no peaceful protest can ever be deemed a felony.

Spending crisis

Are we about to watch as congress and the White House and the Democrat led Senate,

(Harry Reid) engage in activity that goes against the grain of what it means to be an American…

This if true is an amazing story about how the US senate is out of control of the ordinary American Citizen.

The following may not reflect the opinions of the site owner or administrator.

This was received in an email. Dear Patriot, There is a looming crisis in federal spending that has
been conveniently ignored by the mainstream media. Federal retirement benefits have soared for
civil servants and military personnel, but the government has not put a single dollar in reserve to
pay for the benefits! This is one more example of the irresponsible way Congress spends our tax
dollars.

By law, private retirement plans are required to be pre-funded. Meanwhile the Federal
government does not hold itself to the same standard, kicking the metaphorical can down
the road by offering retirement benefits without creating a retirement account to pay the bills.

Private pension plans hold over $2.3 trillion in stocks, bonds and other assets, and even state
and local governments hold over $3 trillion in reserves to pay retirement benefits as they should.
Last year the federal government paid a record $268 billion in retirement benefits out of general
fund revenues. All total, the unfunded liability for federal and military retirement benefits stands
at $5.7 trillion, which is dangerously close to the unfunded mandate of social security which has
an expected shortfall of $6.5 trillion. By abdicating their responsibility to assure the long term
health of our economy, Congress chooses to kick the can down the road a little further each year,
leaving us at a point where there is no more road to kick down.

The problem is not the government
employees who were promised a retirement plan when they were hired. For many, retirement
benefits were the deciding factor between a private sector career and choosing the security of
a government pension program. My issue is with elected leaders who use money that should
fund retirement benefits for government workers on pet projects and pork-barrel spending
instead.

It is not a matter of stripping promised retirement benefits from retired federal workers,
just as we have no desire to take away Social Security benefits from those who depend on
them. The answer lies in significant reduction of the federal government by returning to
Constitutional limits on federal power. Power must be returned to the states, ending the
Big Brother mentality pervasive in Washington DC. We don’t need a Washington bureaucrat
deciding what’s best for our communities, and it’s clear we also cannot afford it.

Our movement must stay vigilant and organized as we roar from the rooftops to stop the
financial insanity running rampant in the halls of government before it is too late.

Biased media liars?

Update, it appears that Fox news, is doing everything they can to influence the

public concerning Rick Perry, what is interesting is this why does allegedly Fox news
not like Rick Perry?

Is there some reason why some of the Fox news bobble heads seem to dislike Rick Perry?

It is really interesting, to see how the allegedly biased media plays out the tea party.

Received in an email, (may not be the opinion of the administrator or owner of this website)

Dear Patriot, One of the lies that establishment politicians and their allies in the

mainstream media love to tell is that the Tea Party is a mindless mob, incapable of
understanding the intricacies of public policy. This, they say, is why we need arrogant
politicians like Harry Reid and Barack Obama to act on our behalf, even when we
oppose them!

This is why they are baffled by the flood of letters your elected officials received yesterday
in support of Rep. Connie Mack’s “One Percent Spending Reduction Act of 2011.
” About 20,000 letters were sent yesterday using our state-of-the-art petition system,
and Congress doesn’t know what to do with themselves! The lies being told by the media
about the Tea Party lead many in Congress to believe that we can’t comprehend something
as complicated as the federal debt. But we’re showing them that we support a framework
that will combine annual spending reductions of just 1% with a future spending cap of 18%
of GDP, a plan that will balance the federal budget by 2019. When we send this many letters to
Congress, they can’t help but pay attention, and when the letters are about a specific bill that can
bring about actual change, they know that we’re watching them! And the best part is, you don’t need
to make a contribution to sign the petition!

Your donation does allow us to continue to provide this service free-of-charge to all Americans
but is not required to participate. By signing the petition supporting Rep. Mack’s spending reduction
plan, you’re letting Congress know that we’re watching and we expect them to provide real solutions
to balance the budget. Thank you, Todd Cefaratti Freedom Organizer

Union Thugs?

Are they really doing this in the name of a union?

Now you should understand that not all unions are this way, ok, there are some out there that have not refused to negociate there are some out there are are fair and they do great work for many people, not just unions members. It is only fair to make sure that people understand that not all unions are like this.

However, we have not seen the president condemn this behavior and that my friends is disturbing.

This is not the hope and the change that people voted for, this is not even how most Unions behave.

However it is something to consider when you start seeing this kind of stuff in the media and then the president does “Nothing at all” ?

The following was received by email.

Is this the hope and change you voted for?
Unions are about helping people, not about hurting people.

Dear Patriot,
The battle for union reform in Wisconsin has again highlighted the hate and vitriol of the liberal left. The unions are now taking a page from the mafia in an attempt to intimidate local business. Their message: put up a “support workers’ rights” sign or face the consequences. You can read the full story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. We have also attached an image excerpt of the actual letter received by businesses at the bottom of this email.

Intimidation tactics are nothing new for unions, but this has gone too far! Private businesses are being told that even if they wish to remain neutral, the union will organize a boycott and interrupt their ability to conduct business. These threats can only be interpreted to say: “Support our ability to take more of your money through taxes or we’ll find a way to take your business anyway.”

When you juxtapose the respectful but hearty protests of the Tea Party with the ignorant and vicious protests of union thugs, media bias becomes exceptionally clear. The mainstream media grasped for straws trying to portray the Tea Party as violent racists, but when clear evidence of union thuggery is readily available, it is dismissed out of hand. This is just some of what we are fighting against, and your contributions give us the ability to take on the establishment, the liberal/union political machine, and their puppets in the media!

The Tea Party movement has taken the role of the ‘adults’ in the American political system. We are changing the debate in Washington; we are changing the way local and state governments run; and we are once again demanding that the politicians respect the Constitution. We are building the infrastructure to establish the Tea Party as a permanent political force! Your support gives us the resources we need to keep growing. Can you give $25, $50, $100, or whatever you can afford to help us succeed?
Thank You,
