The Religious Freedom and Restoration Act in Indiana has been the biggest news in America for a week now.
This is all a joke, a distraction from what’s really being done to America by Barack Obama and his Marxist cabal of America-haters. Or haven’t you noticed an Iranian nuclear deal that allows Iran to gain nuclear weapons…or a new crisis of illegals at the border…debt escalating out of control…40 straight months with over 46 million Americans on food stamps…GDP growth of zero now projected for the first quarter…and a disastrous jobs report.
First let’s “out” the opponents of this law. Let me start by saying I’m a true fiscal conservative but when it comes to social and bedroom issues, I’m a Libertarian. I believe in live and let live. I want government out of my bedroom and boardroom. The government shouldn’t be regulating marriage, only churches should marry people.
And if a gay couple wanted a wedding cake from me, you know what I’d say? “How big?” But, that’s just me. I’m a capitalist, I’m happy to sell my products to everyone. That’s the American way.
But if someone asks me to violate my personal values, morals, or religious beliefs, or if I just don’t like what they are asking me to do, as a business owner of course I have a right to opt out. I’m not hurting them, or stopping them. That’s called free will. That’s called free speech, protected by the Constitution.
The radical gay agenda is infringing on our rights as Americans…as Christians…as business owners. And, it’s going to backfire.
The proof is the small town Indiana pizzeria that told a reporter they would refuse to make pizzas for a gay wedding. How silly. Weddings aren’t catered by pizzerias in the first place. But instantly they were inundated with death threats and even a local coach asking others on Twitter to join her in burning down the pizzeria. The family that owns the pizzeria closed its doors and ran for their own safety.
Then something interesting happened. Americans supported them….to the tune of over $842,000, donated by strangers on an online funding site. This pizzeria owner won the lottery. He should thank God for the radical gay agenda.
But back to the hypocrisy and fraud. First, the Indiana bill is a copy of a federal law signed by Democrat President Bill Clinton in 1993.
Isn’t Bill Clinton a friend of gays? Aren’t gay activists supporting Hillary Clinton for president? Yet not one gay activist blamed the Clintons.
This is just like the radical feminist activists who loved Bill Clinton and never said a word as he used his position of power to have sex with a young intern.
Isn’t that the very definition of sexual harassment? If it was a Republican president the same radical feminists would have screamed for resignation. But when Bill Clinton was the perpetrator, not a peep from the feminists. HYPOCRITES.
Then there’s Obama. What a hypocrite. Iran doesn’t discriminate against gays… they murder them. They throw them off roofs after torturing them. It’s barbaric. Yet Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are doing business with Iran. Why are they willing to sit at the table with these gay killers?
And let’s not forget that Obama himself supported the same law and its implementation in Illinois when he was a sort-of-senator there and it certainly was not a problem then. Although he had alterior motives and that is he did it to protect Muslims not Christians but non-the-less he supported the exact same law in 2007 in Illinois. (Added)
And, if gay rights are really so important to Obama, why isn’t THE RIGHT TO NOT BE MURDERED FOR BEING GAY not part of the Iranian nuclear negotiation? HYPOCRITES.
Mahmoud Asgari, 16, left, and Ayaz Marhoni were hanged in Iran on sodomy charges in 2005. (AP)
Then there’s Apple CEO Tim Cook. He’s was all “fired up” by Indiana’s new law. Yet Apple makes billions selling its products in Russia, where gays have no rights; and, in Muslim countries like Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia where gays are murdered for their sexual preference; and in China where no one has any civil or human rights.
Why doesn’t Apple stop selling iPhones and iPads in those countries? Why doesn’t Apple close its Moscow store immediately? HYPOCRITES.
And then there’s the “pandora’s box” liberal gay activists just opened up:
- Should a Muslim baker be forced by government to bake a cake for a gay wedding?
- Should a Muslim butcher be forced by government to sell pork?
- Should a gay baker be forced by government to bake a cake with anti-gay profanity on top?
- Should a gay photographer be forced by government to photograph a rally where religious speakers are telling gays to go hell?
- Should a Jewish owner of a security company in Skokie, Illinois be forced by government to provide security for a Nazi rally?
- Should a church-going Christian mother be forced by government to cater an awards gala at a porn convention?
- Should a church-going Christian mother who owns a print shop be forced by government to make banners for Spring Break that say, “SHOW ME YOUR BREASTS!”
- Should an Obama-loving liberal business owner be forced by government to rent the stage at his event center for a Tea Party rally?
- Should a black baker be forced by government to bake a cake with racist profanity and a black man in a noose for a KKK birthday party?
Where does it end? This is insanity. Government has no right to take away our rights of free will, free speech and free association. But, if you’re going to force Christian business owners to do things they don’t choose to do, then it goes both ways. The law has to be fairly applied to everyone… or it’s clearly discrimination and a violation of our civil rights.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. I have a feeling liberals and gay rights activists are going to be very sorry they opened this door.

A LITTLE SKIN IN THE GAME
I have come to the conclusion that the reason America is the divided crumbling society that it has become is because we have “NO SKIN IN THE GAME”. More to the point, there are too many people with too much voice making decisions that affect the whole nation that have never had any skin in the game.
Before I go any further, I want to make something clear; I was never in the military, I went to private school and grew up in middle class middle America. I am neither Republican nor democrat. I consider myself a believer in the Constitution; as it was written, by very wise men that fully understood the temptation of power, money and influence.
If you had asked me about what I am about to say a year ago you would have gotten a very different answer than I am going to write today. But in the words of James Carney “the president’s position has evolved.” Good enough for him; good enough for me.
I believe we need a return to the draft. Yes, I know that it comes with some constitutional issues, so maybe this isn’t as much about a true return to the draft, but more about making a point. I think that mandatory military service would bring change to America…and that is what America said it wanted correct…change.
What spurred this thought was the incredible stupidity of the remarks coming out of Hollywood and the progressive left about the movie American Sniper. Too be fair, there were some leftist progressives that did call out their brothers for their ignorance… kudo’s to them. This is where my clarification that I never served in the military becomes important. Some will say that it is hypocritical to call for a draft when I was unwilling to serve when I was of military age.
They are absolutely correct. I was unwilling to serve, but not for some political or moral reason. I saw first-hand how the patriot veterans of Vietnam were treated when they returned home. I lived in Saigon for two years as a pre-teen and saw all the war I wanted to see. I got just a glimpse of what our soldiers saw every day and then the treatment they got when they returned and I didn’t want to be a part of it.
Many years later, and with much more experience and wisdom, I feel a bit of guilt for living the American dream on the backs of those men and women while having no real skin in the game. This is a good point to say thank you to every person that dedicated their life to the military and too protecting all the freedoms and opportunities that I get to take advantage of.
It was the poison that came out of Seth Rogen and Michael Moore that made me wonder how we got to the point where those that protect us have become the enemy. What happened between WWII and today that we don’t appreciate the sacrifices made by those that serve? How did we get to the point where patriots are villains?
As I thought about it I realized that Seth Rogen and Michael Moore are nothing more than today’s Jane Fonda’s. They are the current issue of draft dodgers and bra burners. They are today’s hypocrites raised on a silver spoon and given a platform to spew their garbage from the safety of their gated homes protected by security. They are the today’s shitbag traitors that have made their living on the backs of those that sacrificed and served to protect their right to be stupid.
That is what I mean by “no skin in the game.” If Seth Rogen had served in Afghanistan or in Chris Kyle’s shoes, I doubt he would have run that sewer pipe he calls a mouth the way he did. Seth Rogen is the poster child for raised with a silver spoon in his mouth. Michael Moore on the other hand is just a pig at the trough.
No doubt someone will say that I have no idea what their background was like and they are right. But I know this from having lived and travelled all over the world; virtually every one of us that grew up in America grew up with a silver spoon compared to the majority of the world. Not one of us that didn’t serve has the right to call out any patriot that did.
That is why I think the draft would be a good thing. I believe that the difference between today and yesteryear is that there are too many of us that never had to invest or sacrifice anything important to live the American Dream. We don’t have skin in the game.
Think about the difference a draft would make. If everyone had to do two/four years of military service when they turned eighteen or graduated from high school, the “you owe me everything you worked for” crowd would disappear.
If you had to be up at the butt crack of dawn marching, we wouldn’t have the obesity problem we have today. Instead of sitting on your ass playing video games in your parent’s basement you would be learning responsibility, respect and a whole lot about what freedom is worth.
Instead of kids camping in a city parks marching in the streets, shooting heroin and raping each other, they would be marching and camping in the mountains, learning the value of hard work, discipline and team work. They would discover that with a little effort they don’t need the government to support them and that there is a sense of pride in self-reliance that you don’t get from living on government crack. I doubt many would feel the need to demand their share of what I work for because they would be working themselves.
I believe we wouldn’t have the “racial” problems we allegedly have today because in the military everyone is a grunt and everyone learns that they all have to depend on each other equally to succeed. It has been the one place where to a much higher degree than anywhere else, racial integration is successful. That most certainly would carry over into society as people moved back into civilian life.
Military service should be a prerequisite to citizenship if you are of military age. If you want the benefits of being an American citizen you should have to earn it. I don’t think that if that was the case, those that earned it would look too favorably on those that get amnesty/citizenship by entering the country illegally. Having a little skin in the game would certainly change the value and perspective of being what being an American is worth.
Here is the big one; if you aren’t willing to serve, don’t serve honorably and don’t have a DD214 that says you did your time honorably you should not be eligible to hold any public or government office. This should include any government job from janitor in the public library to public university professor to POTUS. I’m pretty sure there wouldn’t be too many Ward Churchill’s brainwashing our youth if they had the silver spoon extracted from that rectum known as their mouth and had to put a little skin in the game.
Jesse and Big Al wouldn’t have the audience they do because their constituency would evaporate with knowledge, skills and a sense of self-reliance as opposed to the victim message they are fed. No longer would they accept the montage that they are victims of society when they are weaned off the victim diet and realize that their own people have been the ones using them for political gain. Self-reliance and a sense of equality on all sides would go a long way toward getting people and keeping people out of the welfare/poverty death spiral.
There would be very little tolerance for the hate speech and anti-Americanism preached by the likes of Jeremiah Wright, the radical Islamic emams, or self-proclaimed socialists like Bernie Sanders and Kshama Sawant in Seattle.
Lastly I think that those elected to public office would have a better understanding of their responsibility to the people. I think they would look at the people’s money quite a bit differently than they do today and I think they would have a better understanding of how valuable the constitution and our rights really are.
Having a little skin in the game changes one’s perspective; it gives value to the things we take for granted. Freedom isn’t and shouldn’t be free, it should be earned. Nothing you get for free is worth any more than that. That is why welfare and socialism don’t work. When you don’t have to earn it, there is no respect for it or yourself.
Jane Fonda, Seth Rogen and the Michael Moore’s of the world have no right to trash talk anyone. We continue to allow the Saul Alinsky’s and Wade Churchill’s to pollute our kids and incite hate. Our silence toward these anti Americans speaks volumes about how much we really value the gift of being an American.
Freedom shouldn’t be free; every one of us should have some skin in the game. It is far too easy to eat from our American silver spoon and complain while someone like Chris Kyle is doing our share of the sacrificing for us.
A draft will never happen again not because of constitutional issues, but because politicians don’t want a population that values their rights. People with pride and values wouldn’t put up with their incredible irresponsibility and ignorance. The progressives most certainly would never go for it because they need “victims” to maintain their class warfare and racial message. Conservatives would never allow it because self-reliance is empowering and they cannot have an empowered citizenry threatening their hold on power.
If we want to right this ship, we need to have some skin in the game. We can’t afford to continue allowing people that haven’t bought and paid for their ticket to have a say in where we are going. That includes people like me that have lived the good life with very few sacrifices. I was lucky; my father earned his freedom and taught me to value it. I saw and experienced places in the world that didn’t have what we have. But that isn’t the same as sacrificing for it.
My “position today has evolved” and I better realize that I owe my success to patriots like Chris Kyle; he paid for my freedom with his life. I don’t deserve it; he was way more a man than I was. I had the same opportunity he did; he answered the call and I didn’t.
Seth and Mikey don’t deserve it either, and CPO Kyle certainly doesn’t deserve the vile hate they spewed about him. Traitors like Fonda, Alinsky and Wright don’t deserve the gift that has cost the blood of thousands of patriots.
What is the difference between WWII and today? Patriots came home as the heroes that they were. They had skin in the game, walked with an air of self-reliance that was born in blood. They didn’t need or want to be reliant on anyone else; they understood the value of earning everything they got including their freedom. They had skin in the game and they earned the right to every freedom the constitution guarantees. It’s about time the rest of us man up, pull the silver spoon out of our collective asses and do something to earn what Chris Kyle died to give us.
Rest in Peace CPO Kyle, and thank you for your sacrifice.

Remember when the Obama administration considered a GDP contraction of 1% in the first quarter just a hiccup, mainly caused by weather? Good times, good times. That itself was a rather sharp downward revision from the advance estimate of 0.1%, but that was just a mere stumble compared to the plunge in the final revision. The Commerce Department now states that GDP fell at an annualized rate of -2.9% in the first quarter, the worst in more than five years:
Real gross domestic product — the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States — decreased at an annual rate of 2.9 percent in the first quarter of 2014 according to the “third” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter of 2013, real GDP increased 2.6 percent. …
Real GDP declined 2.9 percent in the first quarter, after increasing 2.6 percent in the fourth. This downturn in the percent change in real GDP primarily reflected a downturn in exports, a larger decrease in private inventory investment, a deceleration in PCE, and downturns in nonresidential fixed investment and in state and local government spending that were partly offset by an upturn in federal government spending.
This time the news is bad across the board. Exports dropped 8.9% in Q1, a huge drop from 2013, which wasn’t exactly spectacular either. Real final sales of domestic product dropped 1.3%, where in earlier estimates it had remained in positive territory. Business investment also fell:
Real nonresidential fixed investment decreased 1.2 percent in the first quarter, in contrast to an increase of 5.7 percent in the fourth. Nonresidential structures decreased 7.7 percent, compared with a decrease of 1.8 percent. Equipment decreased 2.8 percent, in contrast to an increase of 10.9 percent. Intellectual property products increased 6.3 percent, compared with an increase of 4.0 percent. Real residential fixed investment decreased 4.2 percent, compared with a decrease of 7.9 percent.

Exposed: How the VA red-flags “disruptive” vets by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2014
Imagine how much better off America’s veterans would be if the federal government spent more time delivering actual care and less time compiling tyrannical lists. The death-inducing secret waiting lists for patients are just the tip of the iceberg.
Did you know, for example, that the VA keeps a database on “disgruntled” and “disruptive” vets that results in arbitrarily restricted care?
Disabled Air Force veteran and veterans advocate/attorney Benjamin Krause has been raising questions about the system for months and warning his peers. Under the VA policy on “patient record flags” (PRFs), federal bureaucrats can classify vets as “threats” based on assessments of their “difficult,” “annoying” and “non-compliant” behavior.
The VA manual says the flags “are used to alert Veterans Health Administration medical staff and employees of patients whose behavior and characteristics may pose a threat either to their safety, the safety of other patients, or compromise the delivery of quality health care.”
That last phrase is priceless. Untold numbers of vets are dead, and legions more have languished because of the VA’s failure to deliver “quality health care.” The Office of Special Counsel just confirmed to President Obama this week that vets across the country were exposed to contaminated drinking water, dirty surgical tools, untrained doctors and neglectful nurses — and that whistleblowers were retaliated against or ignored.

During a Wednesday House hearing on the VA scandal, Brown said she did some “reconnaissance” and discovered there is not “one complaint” about the facilities in her state. It didn’t take long for her opponents to pounce.

The Obamas clearly either do not understand the value of a dollar – or understand it all too well when someone else is picking up the tab. Last week, Judicial Watch released more information from the government about Air Obama.
First up: the controversial Obama family vacation to Africa. This week we released lodging, security, and entertainment expense records from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, revealing that the Secret Service entourage accompanying President Obama and his family during their trip to sub-Saharan Africa from June 27 to July 3, 2013, incurred $2,189,727.60 in lodging, entertainment, and security expenses alone. The records came in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests filed on July 3, 2013, with the U.S. Secret Service.
According to the Department of Homeland Security documents:
- Secret Service hotel accommodations for the seven-day excursion cost $953,788.18
- Though the Obama family Tanzania safari was canceled shortly before the Obama’s departure for Africa, Secret Service preparations for the safari still totaled $11,525.75In March 2014, Judicial Watch released flight expense records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force, revealing that the Obama family also incurred flight expenses of $8,104,224 for flights to, from, and around Africa during the June-July 2013 trip. The trip totaled 35.5 hours at $228,288 an hour. We got the records through a FOIA request. According to numerous press accounts, the total cost of the Obama family trip was estimated to have cost between $60 million and $100 million.
- From June 27 to July 3, 2013, the Obamas visited three countries in Africa: Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania. According to reports in the Washington Post, in the days leading up to the trip, “One hundred [Secret Service] agents are needed as ‘post-standers’ — to man security checkpoints and borders around the president — in each of the first three cities he visits. Sixty-five are needed to meet up with Obama in Dar es Salaam… In addition, 80 to 100 additional agents will be flown in to work rotating shifts, with round-the-clock coverage, for Obama’s and his family’s security details… ”

There’s a little-known division of the Department of Justice that has been bilking the taxpayers of millions of dollars each year and redistributing it to its political and legal allies, creating costly and wide-reaching regulations without any congressional oversight or public comment and seeking to expropriate private land without compensation.
The name of this division? The Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD).
These revelations come from a new book out today titled “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” authored by the National Review’s John Fund and former presidential appointee to the FEC, counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights in the Justice Department and current Senior Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, Hans von Spakovsky.
The ENRD is the division of the DOJ that was responsible for the Gibson Guitar Corporation raid, which as some may recall nominally dealt with the legality of materials imported from Madagascar used in the fingerboards of the company’s guitars, in what appeared to be a politically motivated case. Part of the settlement that Gibson Guitar reached with the DOJ in order to continue as a going concern was to pay out $50,000 to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The authors write:
“instead of making a payment to the U.S. Treasury Department for the American taxpayer, Justice in essence extorted money from Gibson Guitar to help fund the NFWF, a congressionally created private charity that hands out funds “to some of the nation’s largest environmental organizations, as well as some of the smallest,” according to its own website.
So basically, the Justice Department used its authority to engineer a settlement of government claims requiring the defendant to provide benefits to a private group that was not involved in the lawsuit and was not injured by the defendants’ actions.”

What….Are you Kidding Me?
And Obama claims that illegals will not be allowed to sign up for the ACA…..I’m Calling Bull Shit.
When the head of Obama care is “Illegal” you will NEVER EVER convince me that illegals won’t get health care on my dime! You just can’t make this stuff up!
Illegal Alien Heads Obamacare Navigator Program in NYC
By James R. Edwards Jr., October 15, 2013
Now that the Obamacare health insurance “exchanges” are live, experiencing technical difficulties, and facing growing scrutiny for risking Americans’ privacy, Americans concerned about just where their hard-earned tax dollars are going might want to know more about Obamacare “navigators.” Hint: They don’t carry maps and compasses, and they aren’t carefully vetted government agents, though their groups are collecting millions in taxpayer money. Some of the navigators are illegal aliens themselves.
The state of New York has designated the labor union front group Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York, or ROC-NY, as one of its navigator groups — basically authorized and paid-for community organizing for Obamacare. And guess who ROC-NY’s lead is for its health program? Maria Marroquin, an illegal alien from Peru who’s a DREAM activist. It would be hard to make up something this outrageous.
Marroquin practices the political tactics of left-wing extremists, flouting her illegal immigration status before cowed law enforcers and politicians. She has signed up for the end-run DACA amnesty program to launder her status, Associated Press reported. Obama’s DACA invigorated Marroquin and her ilk to go forth and break the law even more.

U.S. prosecutors investigate Oregon’s failed health insurance exchange
The U.S. attorney’s office in Portland has issued subpoenas to Oregon’s health insurance exchange as part of a grand jury investigation into the spectacular failure of the state’s system, which was never able to enroll consumers online even though it spent more than $248 million in taxpayer money on the operation.
Federal prosecutors and FBI agents requested an expansive list of documents from the Oregon Health Authority, a state agency, and Oregon’s state health insurance exchange, known as Cover Oregon. The investigation appears to be focused on the representations that Cover Oregon made about the status and functionality of its website to officials at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, the federal agency that parceled out the money to states to build exchanges under President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

I SURE WISH I WAS DEAD BROKE !!
by: Barry Small 06/13/14
In yet another misrepresentation of the truth, Presidential Candidate-to-be Hillary Clinton claims that she and Billy were flat broke when he left office. I have to say that for just a moment I was choked up and almost shed a tear. Then I remembered something; they are Democrats which means one of two things, either they are lying or they are covering something up for political gain.
If you want to find the truth you have to follow the money and following the Clinton money trail was like driving on the autobahn. To be sure, they had a lot of legal fees; that tends to be the case when you are a criminal. Having to defend yourself against what amounted to prostitution charges as the President of the United States can run the legal fees through the roof. When you don’t learn your lesson and continue down the same path over and over again they become ridiculous.
Then there was Whitewater, a slew of questionable deaths left in their wake and incompetence in office that led to impeachment proceedings. How much trouble can two people get into anyway?
The problem is that they got away with it and that always encourages people to continue in their deviant behavior. This is evident in the way she lies about everything she has been involved in. One only needs to look to Benghazi to see abundant evidence of that.
If she isn’t lying, she is manipulating the truth for political gain. Take Bergdahl and the five Taliban Rock Stars now living it up in Qater. According to Hillary (aka; presidential wanna-be) they are no threat to the United States.
I’m sure they were just joking when they called for a holy war against America. I’m sure they don’ really believe it is their Islamic duty to eradicate all infidels. No, these men have learned to speak English, taken up knitting and spend their days playing The Simpsons.
Now, she says they were broke, I say hardly. First she immediately started collecting a Senate paycheck worth about $145,000 and his pension was worth about $150,000. My definition of broke doesn’t start at $295,000. Then there was the advance on her book that was somewhere around a million dollars. They were just victims of the Republican political machine; they didn’t really do anything that was technically wrong.
She also charged somewhere around $200,000 per appearance to speak, although it must be noted that far more people were interested in hearing Billy speak than her. In fact; the majority of the income they reported in her 2001 Senate disclosure forms came from Bill’s speaking tour and amounted to something north of 12 million dollars.
It should come as no surprise that the democrats see no problem with trillions of dollars of debt. It is obvious that the people they choose to lead them have absolutely no concept of what managing a budget is. It is the old “there are still checks in the checkbook, so I must still have money” mentality on steroids.
The problem is that they don’t have to suffer the consequences of being broke; they still manage to eke out a measly 12 million for the year. All that debt is in the past so what difference does it make anyway? (reference to Benghazi if you didn’t get it) Broke to them is the difference between vacationing on the French Riviera and Monaco. The details don’t matter and someone else is going to pay for it anyway.
That is the problem with Hillary, the details are unimportant, including the destruction that is left in her wake. This is the pathological liar that the Democratic voters are clamoring for. The trail they have left in their wake is a bloody one indeed, starting presumably with Vince Foster although it may well have been long before that, to the not so long ago Benghazi, a murdered ambassador along with three other American heroes; but the truth doesn’t matter to her.
If things were really that bad for them, I’m sure that the government would have gladly bought back the White House china and silverware she stole when they left. I sure wish I was dead broke like them.
