Prop 13, lower taxes and small government //

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I’ll make this short and sweet. . . .

Check out the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and support Prop 13 (for all of you California Residents). Founded in 1978, this organization is California’s largest taxpayer rights organization. Committed to opposing new taxes and defending Prop. 13. California is in for a rough 4 years, so it’s great to have an organization watching the bottom line, even if the Governor Brown and Sacramento aren’t.

If you’re all about lower taxes and smaller government, this is a group to check out. I follow them on facebook so I can see their updates, and you can find their twitter page here.  On their website you’ll find press releases, legislative updates and studies and reports. If you’re not in California, I’m sure there is a similar organization in your state that will provided you with pertinent tax related information. It’s great to stay informed and involved. It’s our money, our future and our bottom line, and we shouldn’t expect the government to ever look out for our interests.

Stop Harvey Milk Day in CA Public Schools/ SB 572//

milk_penn320Oppose the pro-gay “commemorative exercises” of SB 572 aka Harvey Milk Day

Check out the following info from Beetle Blogger’s Post:

Thanks Beetle!!!!!

Children are already being indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle in government schools, but a new bill in the California Legislature would make things much worse.

SB 572 by homosexual activist state senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, a Democrat, would create an official “gay day” called Harvey Milk Day. It would be pushed on every California government school, affecting children as young as kindergarten.

I don’t get it. Hollywood makes a movie and now all of a sudden some guy gets his own “day” in public school? The gay community has several “days” already don’t they? I’m more concerned with this bill then with researching gay history,  however, it would seem that if gays were so sentimental about Harvery Milk, they would have tried to get him a “day” even before Hollywood thought they could make a mint with that movie. Maybe they did, and I just haven’t heard about it…

Can you even believe this? Seriously folks, we do NOT need an official “gay day.” Don’t the activists try to make every day “gay day” already? They needn’t worry about us forgetting they are out there,  perverting society, robbing children of their innocence, bombarding public schools with their trash, trying to destroy marriages and families, oh, no, we  won’t forget them…they are 24/7 trying to indoctrinate this country with their lack of morals  and values and perverted lifestyle.  Personally, I’m pretty sick of it!

If you can’t afford to send your kids to private school, and if you work and can’t home school them, then you need to get involved in fighting this bill. Use the info below to contact our representatives and let them know this bill’s gotta go!

Revolution is Brewing!!// tea party day (as in taxed enough already) is April 15th…

boston-tea-partyAs you well know, in 1773, colonists gathered to dump imported tea into the Boston Harbor to protest the British government’s oppressive tax system that allowed for no direct representation. At the Boston Tea Party, determined colonists stood against the expanding British authority and said no more!

Taxed Enough Already??? I should say so…..

Expanding government authority… sound familiar?

Are you tired of bailouts, stimulus packages, endless national debt and increasing subsidization? Do you practice financial responsibility and watch those who do not get rewarded by the government? Along with many other Americans, are you frustrated by our government reaching its hand out to take far more than it needs?

Are you tired of politicians who:

  • vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it?
  • waste your tax dollars on foolish stimulus projects?
  • are spending trillions of borrowed dollars?
  • do not care about the national debt that our children and grandchildren will have to pay?
  • admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
  • run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
  • want government controlled health care?
  • appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department?
  • want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
  • want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity, gas and home heating fuels?
  • want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
  • give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
  • If so, join thousands of Americans on Tax Day, April 15th, at your local Tax Day Tea Party to express your frustration over our out of control government and its redistributive economic policies. Whether you are Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal, all are welcome in this stand against unrestrained government. This true grassroots movement is spreading with Tea Parties planned across the nation.

    The CA Legislature Wants to Reject Your Vote// go rally at the capital on Tuesday…

    Calling all Nor Cal residents and everyone else who can get to Sacramento by Tuesday. It’s time to get serious and let our government know that we don’t appreciate them ignoring our votes and forgetting who they work for.

    State Capitol

    Room 4203

    Here’s the latest update from the DNA: **Ok, so the most recent word is that the opposition is going to be busing people in from San Francisco for the hearings so seating at the actual hearing may be limited, come early. If you have kids, bring water bottles and a few snacks, comfortable shoes. Security is tight there, so remember, no pocket knives etc.

    If we have more people come to the hearing than we can fit in the room, we’ll hold a concurrent rally outside the capitol building with a petition signing.  No body will be wasted!  Kids and families are welcome!  Come and be heard!  Wear your yellow shirt if you like!  If it rains, bring an umbrella, we’ll rally in the hallways!

    Don't let our legislators stamp this on our ballots! Rally for marriage on Tuesday!

    Here are the details on the rally from United Families International:

    This resolution would put the Assembly on record as supporting the repeal of Proposition 8 and declaring that the initiative was an improper revision to the California Constitution. -Equality California Website

    Dear California Supporters of the Family,

    State Assembly and Senate Considering Resolution Encouraging State Supreme Court to Overturn Prop 8!!!

    SR7 and HR5

    On Tuesday, February 17th at 10:30 am, The Assembly Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing followed at 12:30 pm by a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Proposition 8. The committees will be considering crafting a joint resolution encouraging the California State Supreme Court to overturn Prop 8. By issuing the resolution the Assembly will officially express its opposition to Proposition 8, calling for its repeal, and stating that it was an “improper revision” to the state constitution.

    Read HR5 and Read SR7

    Passing these resolutions flies in the face of the will of the voters. Prop 8, was passed by a clear majority of California voters in November 2008. Fifty-two percent of California voters stood up to protect the family, which is the lynch pin of civilization. William Glaston, a former policy advisor to President Clinton, is quoted in the UFI Marriage Advantage Family Guide. He states, “Marriage is an important social good, associated with an impressively broad array of positive outcomes for children and adults alike….Whether American society succeeds or fails in building a healthy marriage culture is clearly a matter of legitimate public concern.”

    Don’t let the Assembly take your vote away. Join us in protecting marriage, children and the future of family and our society.

    Obama Picks Top Notch (no pun intended) Porn Lawyer as Deputy Attorney General// ick is all I have to say…

    A friend of marriage and family? Guess again...That's right, he's bff's with Playboy, Penthouse and the ACLU, but Obama picked him anyway. I guess they must have similar values.

    A friend of marriage and family? Guess again...That's right, he's bff's with Playboy, Penthouse and the ACLU, but Obama picked him anyway. I guess they must have similar values.

    Our lovely new, doesn’t-have-the-country’s-best-interest-in-mind-or-he-wouldn’t-have-picked-this-perv-as-general, President, has in fact picked someone who could very well be practically a porn king himself, to be our fabulous country’s attorney general. Smooth move right? After all, he worked for Playboy and the ACLU… kind of neck and neck for the amount of sleaze associated with these “organizations” don’t you think? Not what I would want my professional resume to consist of.  I would venture to say that his morals might be (are definitely) a little loose, his legal perspectives a little skewed and our children more in danger because of him, but that’s just my opinion. Here’s the low down on David Ogden, and you can decide for yourself.

    Send a Message to Congress// don’t mess with the DOMA!

    . . .That would be the Defense of Marriage Act. You know, the one Obama is trying to do away with, so he can keep in line with going back on his word to protect marriage. This is what I get for not reading my blogger email over the weekend, and I feel bad I’m late to this game. I got an email from the National Organization for Marriage saying that we need to hold our legislators accountable and send letters to them explaining that we do not want them to repeal the DOMA.

    Thousands of letters have already been sent, but we need more sent to Congress and the White House urging President Obama and members of Congress to save the Defense of Marriage Act!

    At DomaDefenseFund.com, in just a few minutes, you can contact President Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid, as well as your own representatives in Washington via email, or you can print out the letter and mail it. They’ve created a site to make it easy — Just click here to email your letter in defense of the DOMA. Let your voice be heard!

    You can find the text of the DOMA here.

    {p.s} I just sent my letters and it seriously took less then a minute. Just type in your name and address and hit send!

    The No Cussing Club// their motto: leave people better then you found them

    The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it. George Washington

    This is just about the cutest website I have ever seen. My husband heard about it from someone at Church today and we looked it up. The owner, creator, operator and brain child behind nocussing.com is McKay Hatch. A regular 14 year-old boy from S. Pasadena who likes to play soccer, play video games, and hang out with his friends. Here’s how it all got started.

    A lot of kids at my school, and some of my friends, would cuss and use dirty language all the time.  They did it so much, they didn’t even realize they were doing it.  It bothered me so much that one day I challenged them to stop!  They were shocked.  They didn’t know that it was bothering me.  They didn’t even realize how much they were doing it until I said something.  I was actually surprised at how they reacted; they accepted my No Cussing Challenge.  But some of the kids said they didn’t know how to stop.

    So he created the No Cussing Club so they could help each other by reminding and supporting each other not to cuss.  Word spread at McKay’s  school, and a month later the No Cussing Club had 50 members. After entering high school as a freshman, and getting the school to let the No Cussing Club be an official club on campus, they are now in all 50 states, in countries all over the world and have over 20,000 members.
