Unfortunately, almost everything Washington's done the last 18 months has sent the opposite message.
The "stimulus" boosted federal spending, thus draining funds from private-capital markets and diverting resources from the productive sector of the economy. The main jobs that it "saved" were employees of state and local governments — shielding the public sector from pain even as it inflicted more agony on the private sector.
The health-care law is a cornucopia of new taxes, mandates and regulations — directly increasing the cost of hiring new employees (as well as of keeping old ones on). By telling employers that the cost of hiring is set to rise sharply in the years ahead, it makes them far more cautious about hiring.
The new bailout legislation, though labeled "financial reform," raises costs for financial firms, meaning loans will be more expensive. That is, investing in that truck or computer for that new hire will cost you more.

Elena Kagan's partial-birth abortion scandal.
Fourteen years ago, to protect President Clinton's position on partial-birth abortions, Elena Kagan doctored a statement by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Conservatives think this should disqualify her from the Supreme Court. They understate the scandal. It isn't Kagan we should worry about. It's the whole judiciary.

closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler -- were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky.
[D]ealerships were retained because they were recently appointed, were key wholesale parts dealers, or were minority- or woman-owned dealerships. [Emphasis added.]
“Factors Affecting the Decisions of General Motors and Chrysler to Reduce Their Dealership Networks.” You can find it at the TARP OIG’s website here. I encourage everyone to read through the entire report. The MSM coverage of the audit didn’t do justice to the independent watchdog’s damning indictment of Obummer's bureaucrats in charge of nationalizing the U.S. auto industry.

Justice Clarence Thomas discussed the history of gun-control laws, whose purpose was to stifle the rights of minorities and to prevent African-Americans from
defending themselves against the likes of the Ku Klux Klan. Excerpts from Thomas' opinion appear below.

The pictures and words speak for themselves. This is a You Tube montage that highlights the 44th President's affinity for Islam. It clearly shows Obama's one-sided allegiance to Islam and his distortions of historical truth. As time passes, it would serve the Nation well to be reminded of Obama's inclinations.
Please view it before it is removed.
In particular, when Obama references the Muslim contribution to America, and says that he knows, too, that "Islam has always been a part of America's story" he might wish to review the following:
There were no Muslims on the Mayflower. There were no Muslim signatures on the United States Constitution or the Declaration of Independence or the Bill of Rights.
No Muslims fought for America's freedom from England. However, the country did fight against the forces of Islam in the form of the Barbary pirates.
Two Muslim slaves were brought to America in 1731 but both were returned to Africa. No Muslims fought during the Civil War to free the slaves in America. Muslims were, however, slave traders. In fact, to this day, Muslims are still the largest traffickers in human slavery in the world.

How to Steal an Election
What we are seeing is the transplantation of Chicago politics to communities throughout the nation that are completely unprepared for the level of fraud and intimidation that can be generated by thousands of unethical Democrats, including private citizens, local, state, and federal officials, and politicians, convinced that breaking the law is okay as long as the “right” candidate wins.
On July 6, American Thinker published an article by Lee Cary about an interview with a Chicago political machine insider. It contained the following warning:
“In Chicago, the Precinct Captains watch to see who votes and who doesn’t. Then, at the end of the day, others will cast votes for those who haven’t shown up to vote, all under the direction of the Precinct Captain. If the actual voter shows up later, they’re given someone else’s card. The Republican poll watchers don’t stop this. Hell, most of them are actually Democrats.”
The Democrat Voter Fraud Playbook is as follows:
1.ACORN registers the names, legitimate or not.
2.Black Panther, SEIU and other “community organizer” groups intimidate people, especially minorities, from voting Republican.
3.Voter lists remain unscrubbed of felons, dead people, and illegal immigrants.
4.On Election Day, precinct workers submit any unused ballots for Democrat candidates.
5.Democrat officials and politicians pretend like nothing happened.
It’s as easy as that to steal an election.

82-year-old Robert Wallace said he fired two shots at two men when they tried to run him over while stealing his flatbed trailer.
Wallace now faces twelve felony counts, including four counts of attempted first degree murder, for what he described as an act of defending his property and his life. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.
One of the thieves, Damacio Torres later admitted to the theft. He and his partner in crime, Alvara Cardano both have prior arrest records and are believed to be in the country illegally.
But they are not facing any charges.

Below are three bills that passed the State Assembly (over my objections in committee and on the floor). These bills are now awaiting action in the State Senate. While the Senate is on a break, find your State Senator and tell them to vote for freedom and against these three bills.
AB1934 seeks to punish citizens for engaging in the legal act of openly carrying an unloaded handgun. If California had a reasonable concealed carry law that was consistent and fair there would be no need for citizens to carry a gun in open.
AB2223 seeks to outlaw the use of lead shot when shooting or hunting in state-run wildlife management areas. Anti-hunting groups want to make it harder to hunt and this bill would do it.
AB1810 seeks to establish a Canadian style registration system, similar to the one currently in place for handguns, for all newly-acquired long guns. Under AB1810 require the Attorney General to keep the make, model and serial number of the firearm as well as the identifying information of the purchaser on file. If only the British had such a list!

Peaceful Christian missionaries are arrested on the streets of America because they are too close to a Muslim Festival.
The pretrial services system was designed for indigent arrestees who could not afford bail. Pretrial release is also sometimes called "detention release" or some refer to it as "released on (the defendant's) recognizance (ROR)." Usually, the three benchmarks for such release are:
•The defendant is not considered a danger to the community.
•The defendant is not a flight risk.
•The defendant is indigent and cannot afford bail.
Unfortunately, like so many government programs, pretrial release has ballooned into an overwhelming bureaucratic system that allows tens of thousands of arrestees a "get out of jail free" card without having to pay any bail, no matter what their financial resources may be. The pretrial services program employs thousands of public employee workers and serves to puts private bail bonds companies out of business.
One more reason you can add to the 1,000+ reasons California is going broke!
