Jim Hill’s Letter to Barbara Boxer

  Excellent letter.   Wish more people in this country would speak their mind!!!

Jim Hill’s Letter to Barbara Boxer

Some of us witnessed the arrogance of Barbara Boxer (CA)  as she admonished a brigadier general because he addressed her as “ma’am” and not “Senator” before a Senate hearing. This letter is from a National Guard aviator and Captain for Alaska Airlines. I wonder what he would have said if he were really angry.  Long fly Alaska !!!!!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You were so right on when you scolded the general on TV for using the term, “ma’am,” instead of “Senator”. After all, in the military, “ma’am” is a term of respect when addressing a female of superior rank or position. The general was totally wrong.

You are not a person of superior rank or position … you are a member of one of the world’s most corrupt organizations, the U.S. Senate, equalled only by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Congress is a cesspool of liars, thieves, inside traders, traitors, drunks (one who killed a staffer, yet is still revered), criminals, and other low level swine who, as individuals (not all, but many), will do anything to enhance their lives, fortunes and power, all at the expense of the People of the United States and its Constitution, in order to be continually re-elected.

Many democrats even want American troops killed by releasing photographs. How many of you could honestly say, “We pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor”? None? One? Two?

Your reaction to the general shows several things.

First is your abysmal ignorance of all things military. Your treatment of the general shows you to be an elitist of the worst kind. When the general entered the military (as most of us who served) he wrote the government a blank check, offering his life to protect your derriere, now safely and comfortably ensconced in a 20 thousand dollar leather chair, paid for by the general’s taxes. You repaid him for this by humiliating him in front of millions.

Second is your puerile character, lack of sophistication, and arrogance which borders on the hubristic. This display of brattish behavior shows you to be a virago, termagant, harridan, nag, scold or shrew, unfit for your position, regardless of the support of the unwashed, uneducated masses who have made   California into the laughing stock of the nation.

What I am writing, Senator, are the same thoughts countless millions of Americans have toward Congress, but who lack the energy, ability or time to convey them.

Under the democrats, some don’t even have the 44 cents to buy the stamp. Regardless of their thoughts, most realize that politicians are pretty much the same, and will vote for the one who will bring home the most bacon, even if they do consider how corrupt that person is.

Lord Acton (1834 – 1902) so aptly charged, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Unbeknownst to you and your colleagues, “Mr. Power” has had his way with all of you, and we are all the worse for it.

Finally Senator, I, too, have a title … it is “Right Wing Extremist Potential Terrorist Threat.”

It is not of my choosing, but was given to me by your Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano.

And you were offended by “ma’am”?

Have a fine day. Cheers!

Honoring and respecting the voters is a thing of the past for many of those in our congress and senate …we need to vote their arrogant, self serving asses out of office if America is to get on the long road back from the devastation that these self serving cowards have brought upon us!

Chicago thug tactics

Chicago thug tactics

Pamela Geller
America has been sucker punched. The unifier, the great post-racial, post-American President, has adopted the street tactics of Chicago thug politics. His ACORN/SEIU/Union goons are beating up decent American citizens at town hall meetings. And with the violence comes vilification: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has claimed that protesters are “carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.”

Union thugs beat up a protester, Randy Arthur, at Florida Democrat Congresswoman Kathy Castor’s town hall meeting in Tampa on Thursday. Castor’s union thugs also shut the doors to prevent the opposing opinions from being heard. Fifteen hundred people were there, but they would not let them in the front door. When the doors were finally opened, only about seventy-five people were allowed in. Meanwhile, by the time even those seventy-five were let in, the union and ACORN thugs had already been quietly ushered in through the back door, and had already taken seats that were reserved for them in the front. Castor herself then proceeded to leave, not taking any questions, claiming that it was because she “couldn’t hear.” Translation: she doesn’t have answers, because she hasn’t read the House bill.

 

And in Missouri, over a thousand St. Louis Tea Party taxpayers showed up to attend the Russ Carnahan town hall meeting in South St. Louis. They too were locked out – while the Carnahan staff was sneaking members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in the side door marked “handicapped.” Remember: Obama paid out at least $2,250,000 to the SEIU, the nation’s largest labor union. And SEIU COPE-PAC spent $13,355,389 to get Obama elected President. SEIU paid for door-to-door canvassing for Obama, voter identification and registration, and phone banks.

 

The thugs were attacking free citizens. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has this: “Kenneth Gladney, 38, a conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with ‘Don’t tread on me’ printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was awaiting treatment for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack. ‘It just seems there’s no freedom of speech without being attacked,’ he said.”

 

Not for conservatives. Not for free Americans.

 

Expect a lot of this, folks. Expect to fight for your right to speak freely. They are co-opting the heartfelt outcry of great Americans as a propaganda trick. They will pack town halls this summer with their paid street thugs and video the proceedings with shaky cameras so that their media shills and whores will happily run the video as the “American street.”

 

Meanwhile, leftist bloggers are trying desperately to substantiate the lies that Pelosi, Obama’s thugs, and the disinformation blogs on the payroll of subversive groups are spreading like so much manure. They are photoshopping pictures to make it look as if the protesters are acting like leftwing thugs. The Huffington Post ran a closely cropped picture with this caption: “In one image, a young man with a shirt that reads ‘Hitler Gave Great Speeches Too’ is photographed making what looks like a Hitler salute. TalkLeft blogger Jeralyn Merritt interviewed the teen, who told her was 16 and hailed from former Gov. Sarah Palin’s hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. The progressive website FireDogLake, has more.”

 

The HuffPo took down this post after I called them on it, but by then it had already spread all over the Net. This sweet boy should sue. This is libel. He should sue every blog that ran this smear.

 

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told demonstrators: “Behave yourselves like your mom would probably tell you to do.” Look who is preaching us about civility: this thuggish administration. The good news is that the American people are too smart to fall for such cheap tricks. The good news is that now average, ordinary Americans can see how evil and deceitful the Democrats are. It is no longer a media story they never heard or saw. It is the American citizen. The average American is being smeared. Now it is in the daily fabric of their lives. I hope the Democrats keep the mask off, so that everyone can see the fifth column at work.

 

This is turning into a low grade civil war. Are Obama and Pelosi and their allies ratcheting up civil unrest so that they can call in reinforcements?

 

The nerve of these thugs. They are fascists. Do not back down. Do not cower. Do not go quietly into the night. You will be locked out. So what? Chant from the street. And get everything that happens on video.

Protest for Me, But Not for Thee

Protest for Me, But Not for Thee

By Kyle-Anne Shiver

What happens when the middle class feels even more victimized than the nation’s poor?  When American middle-class citizens feel that they are being steamrolled by a Changeopoly Blitzkrieg, engineered by the principalities and powers of overreaching government and corporate oligarchs?  When the only answer they’re given to their just concerns about unsustainable debt is “We won.”? 

Well, those beleaguered middle-class folks might take a look at the tactics which have been working against them for four decades and decide to make use of some of those tactics themselves.  Middle-class Americans, myself among them, have watched for 40 years, as one angry group after another has managed to get its way, and more and more entitlements from our purses to theirs, using the tactics designed by the liberal fascist revolutionary, Saul Alinsky.

 

One would need to be buried under a rock not to understand by now that small groups of angry people can get what they want.

 

Think ACORN and NINJA home loans.

 

Think Code Pink and the tarring of GW as a “war criminal.”

 

Think ANSWER and the closing of Gitmo.

 

This list could fill a museum on the success of “community organizing” for “change.”  

 

So, what in the world is the legacy media doing going bonkers about it now?  Why on earth would media elites not give glowing coverage to this democracy in action, the same kind they’ve been unabashedly heralding for decades now, every time a dozen live bodies show up with signs in a public place?

 

Why, I do declare, they seem to be saying with a rather concerted effort, “Protest for me, but not for thee.”

 

What the Democrats and their bullhorns in media are telling us, the folks, is that they are plum scared down to their woolies because they now know they’ve lost their monopoly on information.  And the left has lost its monopoly on grievance, too. 

 

For 40 years, this Country has been blackmailed by angry Alinskyite protest into redistributing great chunks of wealth to aggrieved-status mobs under the pretense of charity or entitlement.  The scales of grievance have now tilted so far to the left that it is the middle-class, which feels itself most endangered, most unable to make its voice heard in the Halls of Congress.

 

Saul Alinsky, for his part, told the young radicals of the 1960s that they had to bring the middle-class into the revolution by the mid-1970s or give up altogether.  Alinsky understood where the real power in America was held.  Alinsky understood that power wasn’t in the board rooms, but in the middle-class consumer’s purse.  It wasn’t in the school board, but in the middle-class parent’s expectations.  Power wasn’t even in Washington, but in the demands of the most populous group of Americans:  the vast middle-class, whom he called the “have-a-little-want-mores,” in keeping with his solely material worldview.

 

But Saul Alinsky’s vision amounted to making the middle-class so “rubbed raw” with “discontent”, making them feel so downtrodden that they would demand more government handouts for themselves and more government control in the hands of their political masters.  Government controlling everything in the whole society was Alinsky’s idea of “freedom” and “liberty.”  He disavowed the power of a single individual to affect change in his own life, and always, every single time, looked to collectivist power for strength.  Alinsky’s vision was, of course, Marxist, but with fascist elements thrown into the mix.

 

Alinsky’s first successes, during the 40s and 50s, were in getting the Catholic Church and other fair-weather liberals to sign onto the radical labor agenda, which has now successfully crippled the American auto industry and put it at the mercy of a federal takeover.  This corporatist model, of leaving big business in private hands, while a central government calls all the shots, is one of the hallmarks of fascist third-way activity. 

 

But as we’ve learned to our dismay, the left has successfully branded conservative Americans, who continue to believe in limited government and the true separation of powers, as fascist.  So, in Nancy Pelosi’s addled imagination, protesters against government control of yet another still-mostly-private American enterprise, are the ones carrying Swastikas.

 

Doesn’t Nancy Pelosi remind you, dear readers, of the mindless scarecrow in Oz? 

 

With no independent mind of her own, she’s giddily traveled the yellow-brick road and now depends upon her Wizard in Chief to call all the shots for her ninnified illusions.   

 

What we are seeing now in townhalls across this country are middle-class people demanding that their government drop any and every plan to convert America’s healthcare system to one like those failing throughout socialized Europe and Canada.  Anyone who honestly believed that a man, who had done nothing whatsoever in his entire life but go to school, shout slogans at rallies, and run for office could be an able president, have now been disabused of that fantasy.  Anyone who believed that Barack Obama was a conciliator who could de-polarize a Nation, purposely polarized for 80 years by his own side, has now awakened from the spell.

 

Honey, even a complete nitwit knows that a president, who hires out his real job to 32 czars, is not CEO material. 

 

And, it is those people mostly, who now are coming out of their homes and businesses in earnest dissent.  They oppose the takeover of yet another part, perhaps the most intimate part, of their already over-controlled lives.  And middle-class America seems anything but ready to concede and give life-and-death decision making over to the Wizard and his loyal band of Alinskyites.

 

The American people are anything but mindless dolts, most especially our vibrant and diverse middle-class.  We are seeing some of the same Alinsky tactics employed at townhall meetings, but by a group opposed to more government control, not demanding more of it.  They are the anti-fascist, anti-socialist, anti-Alinsky folks, who would prefer to keep the liberties they have, even if it means sacrifice and suffering.

 

This ain’t what the leftists in charge expected to see.  The Democrats envisioned the middle-class welcoming, with spread-wide-open arms of gratitude, these new power plays that would put more control into the hands of their beneficent bureaucracy.

 

Instead, the Alinskyites are being met with 1776 Redux, and all they can do is yell “Fascist” at the top of their lungs, just as they’ve been doing for 40  years.

 

What a heap of malicious poppycock.
