Teaching about Holocaust Should be a War Crime?

What is with these people? The Holocaust did happen in World War II. It was celebrated by Nazi Germany. End of discussion.

There is just no way anyone could justify teaching history could ever be considered a war crime. But a Hamas spiritual leader seems to think it should. Why? Because it makes him uncomfortable? Or is there a more sinister agenda at hand?


White House Wants Your Video on Health Reform

Just thought you'd want to know the White House is asking for your videos on why health care reform is important. So, perhaps we should all make videos showing why the current health care reform bill is so wrong for America and what could be done for effective health care reform? Start with tort reform?

Oh yes, and once again, this is a spam email from the White House. This time, it's from the Office of Health Reform. Gee, I didn't know that was an official office.

Here is a portion of the email (the myth is no health care reform needed):

You can help the Vice President debunk this myth by uploading your own video on why reform matters to you. This is an opportunity for Americans of all backgrounds and situations to make the case for reform in your own words.

And they've come up with a quiz to help you. Uh, huh.

You Gotta Dance With Who Brung You

There's been a bunch of chatter regarding the presidential advisors and their roles of whispering in the ear of our president. More evidence is being found and released which suggests some of these advisors, who are also called czars, have some deep seated anti-American beliefs. Does anyone know how much influence they hold? Thought you'd be interested in seeing this latest story out this morning.

Obama Adviser on 9/11: Blame 'U.S. Imperialism,' Reports Aaron Klein

/PRNewswire -- One day after the 9/11 attacks, President Obama's "green jobs czar" led a vigil that expressed solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans as well as what he called the victims of "U.S. imperialism" around the world, reports Aaron Klein of WorldNetDaily.

Klein previously reported Van Jones, special adviser for green jobs, enterprise and innovation to the White House Council on Environmental Quality, is an admitted black nationalist and radical communist.

Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist revolutionary organization Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM. That group, together with Jones' Elle Baker Center for Human Rights, led a vigil Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif.

STORM's official manifesto, titled, "Reclaiming Revolution" has surfaced on the Internet.

A review of the 97-page treatise found a description of a vigil that Jones' group held Sept. 12, 2001, at Snow Park in Oakland, Calif. The event drew hundreds and articulated an "anti-imperialist" line, according to STORM's own description.

The radical group's manual boasted the 9/11 vigil was held to express solidarity with Arab and Muslim Americans and to mourn the civilians killed in the terrorist attacks "as well as the victims of U.S. imperialism around the world"

"We honored those who lost their lives in the attack and those who would surely lose their lives in subsequent U.S. attacks overseas" STORM's manifesto recalls.

Also, Klein obtained a press release of Jones' vigil, dated Sept. 11, 2001, and titled, "People Of Color Groups Gather to Stand In Solidarity With Arab Americans and to Mourn the East Coast Dead."

VWV Note: I'm stunned. I guess this is a feel good moment for...??? But, it's not such a feel good moment for me. This proposed date of September 20 is smack dab in the middle of our, yes-America's, Constitution Week. Fly a flag, alright. Make it American.

Are These the Questions Congress Wants You to Answer?

So, Specter wants a Congressional hearing over the VA Book that was reinstated by the Obama Administration? Will he and his Democratic colleagues be ready to testify that this is part of the "end of life" counseling they currently have in their health care bill?

I was ready to stroll outside and shoot myself to put me out of my misery after I read the book--- and I'm not sick or disabled or depressed. What would someone who is in pain do after reading the book?

Limbaugh Takes on White House for VA 'Death Book'
by Connie Hair

On Friday, radio talk show king Rush Limbaugh was on fire over the content of the Veterans’ Administration "Death Book" (pdf), the “end of life counseling” the VA now inflicts on our veterans.

RUSH: “Page 21 from the Death Book, from the VA, reinstated by Obama. ‘What makes your life worth living? Instructions: This exercise will help you think about and express what really matters to you. For each row, check one answer to express how you would feel if this factor by itself described you,’ and there are, you know, A through S here. Here's A. ‘I can no longer walk but get around in a wheelchair.’ Life like this would be: ‘difficult, but acceptable; worth living, but just barely; not worth living; can’t answer now,’ and the people reading the book are supposed to check off which of these things apply. So, ‘A. I can no longer walk but get around in a....

Saving Health Care Money without Passing a Bill?

If the Obama administration's plan is to pay for universal health coverage by identifying and taking out wasteful spending in health care , and if they have already identified them, then why do we need a bill passed which would spend a whole lot more money? Can't the current government minions slam the door shut on wasteful spending now? And if not, why?

Just wondering.

Education is the Key- So Why Don't We Try It?

Having a solid education is the key for opening doors and opportunities. On this one issue, it would appear the president and I agree strongly.

With that said, I was shocked this morning to read an article about the lack of education in our colleges and universities. The report released indicates a serious lack of teaching students about American government or American history. Actually, it said that of the 100 leading colleges and universities, only 11% require these courses. Only 53% require mathematics.

How can that be? Is it more important to learn to be a free thinker or to be a free thinker with knowledge in your head?

Maybe I'll start a survey. Now seems just like the perfect time as I reflect on a couple of upcoming American history events.

Quick. Tell me.

What was the Treaty of Paris? Is any part of it still in use today?
When was the United States Constitution framed?

Do you know the answers? I do.

Learn from History When Life was Devalued by a Government

VWV Note: I saw this episode of Glenn Beck's show yesterday. This story paints a grim view of what did happen in the past with eugenics. But, happen it did.

Learn from history. I hope we haven't forgotten the lessons learned.

Are You Listening? Support of Health Care Reform Bill Down- Again

VWV Note: All recent and new polls continue to show Americans do not want the current health care reform bill passed. Will Congress listen to those who elected them? The recent interest in town hall meetings and record numbers of Americans showing up in vain to try and get their questions answered demonstrates the passion of both sides of the debate. Some Congressmen won't even have public forums on the subject. The big question is "Of whom are they afraid?"

Why does the White House think they have to continue to sell the bill with more campaign-like strategies? If the health care bill is good, it will stand on its own two feet.

If not, revisit the drawing board and devise a health care reform bill that doesn't make the majority of Americans "sick" when they read it.

Support for Dems’ Government Takeover of Health Care Continues to Plummet

The more the American people learn about the Democrats’ proposed government takeover of health care that will increase costs, destroy jobs, and put bureaucrats in charge of medical decisions instead of patients and doctors, the more they oppose it. No fewer than five polls released at the end of July showed increasing concern, if not outright, opposition to the Democrats’ government-run health care plan. A Quinnipiac University Poll last week also indicates that a majority disapprove (52) of the President’s handling of health care, while only 39 approve - a 10 percentage point jump in the last month alone.

Today, a new Rasmussen poll shows Americans’ opposition to the Dems’ government-run health care plan is still increasing:

“Public support for the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats has fallen to a new low as just 42% of U.S. voters now favor the plan. That’s down five points from two weeks ago and down eight points from six weeks ago.”

“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that opposition to the plan has increased to 53%, up nine points since late June.”

“More significantly, 44% of voters strongly oppose the health care reform effort versus 26% who strongly favor it. Intensity has been stronger among opponents of the plan since the debate began.”

The American people support real health care reform – a plan that reduces costs and expands access to quality care. The Democrats’ proposal does neither, and that’s why they are seeing the mounting opposition firsthand back in their congressional districts. House Republicans have offered a better solution that addresses Americans’ concerns about out-of-control health care costs. The House GOP plan would make quality health care coverage more affordable and accessible for every American, regardless of pre-existing health conditions. For example, the plan:

•Lets small businesses band together through associations and purchase health insurance for workers at a lower cost just like large corporations and unions do.

•Offers incentives to help Americans who do not have access to quality health care get the coverage they can afford.

•Make coverage more affordable for everyone by giving states new tools to design innovative health care programs.

•Reduce health care costs by reforming medical liability rules that cost families millions each year – millions that line the pockets of trial lawyers at the expense of patients and doctors.

•Reforms regulations so insurance companies compete for your business and you can shop around for the best coverage and price.

•Roots out health care waste, fraud, and abuse that cost taxpayers billions.

Isn’t it time for Democrats to scrap their costly plan and work with Republicans on a proposal that will make health care more affordable and accessible for the American people?

A Little Jumpy, Mr. Scott?

Oops. Another town hall meeting gets out of hand when a constituent asks a question to Rep. David Scott in Douglasville, Georgia.

The one who appears to be jumpy and combative? Representative David Scott.

Will he listen to those who voted for him? On this night, he had no intentions of doing so. Take his advice. Call him. Call him often and ask the questions he doesn't want to answer.

Does Your Computer and Personal Files Now Belong to the Government?

Did you click on to see if you qualify for the cash for clunkers? If so, your computer and your personal files now belong to the government. The disclaimer you agreed to said your computer and files are now the property of the government which they can follow, copy, or give to law enforcement- in or out of America.

You've got to see the video by Glenn Beck which exposed this invasion of privacy.

You Have No Gender-- You've Been Banned

Don't know about you, but I happen to love the differences between men and women. Too bad, the lobbyists don't. All are one and one are all the same.

Watch out. The thought police are using school textbooks to indoctrinate our children. There's all sorts of new bans on words. And they're not bad or obscene-- just different. Gee, guess we can't be different or individuals anymore?

So what is the new term for freshman? Little high school student?

Today's Poll Paints the Picture for Obama

Looks like a picture is worth a thousand words.

Here's the story just in case you want words to add to the pictures.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Monday, August 03, 2009

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 30% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a President.....

Who is Showing and Who is Telling?

There has been a flutter of new activity regarding the ongoing saga of where Obama was born. Was he a natural born American citizen at birth?

In the event you've missed some of these stories in the last day or so, I thought I'd give you the links so you can read about it.

Is this birth certificate the best candidate to be authentic?

If it is authentic, what happens next? I just don't see Obama stepping down, and I don't see Congress removing him from power.

Is this really smoking gun of Obama's Kenyan birth?
California attorney Orly Taitz, who has filed a number of lawsuits demanding proof of Barack Obama's eligibility to serve as president, has released a copy of what purports to be a Kenyan certification of birth and has filed a new motion in U.S. District Court for its authentication....

Attempt to vett the Kenyan birth certificate.
You will note that my take on this is verify. Trust and verify doesn't work with an issue with such an extensive history of fraud and forgery. .....

Free Republic: Obama Kenyan Birth Certificate Surfaces?
Free Republic has an astonishing story to perk up your Monday morning. It appears they may have, indeed, found the Obama Kenyan Birth Certificate: "If you note the date on the Certified Copy,...
