Obama the Scientist

A top Republican senator has ordered an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency's alleged suppression of a report that questioned the science behind global warming.
The 98-page report, co-authored by EPA analyst Alan Carlin, pushed back on the prospect of regulating gases like carbon dioxide as a way to reduce global warming. Carlin's report argued that the information the EPA was using was out of date, and that even as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have increased, global temperatures have declined.
"He came out with the truth. They don't want the truth at the EPA," Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla, a global warming skeptic, told FOX News, saying he's ordered an investigation. "We're going to expose it."
The controversy comes after the House of Representatives passed a landmark bill to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, one that Inhofe said will be "dead on arrival" in the Senate despite President Obama's energy adviser voicing confidence in the measure.
According to internal e-mails that have been made public by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, Carlin's boss told him in March that his material would not be incorporated into a broader EPA finding and ordered Carlin to stop working on the climate change issue. The draft EPA finding released in April lists six greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, that the EPA says threaten public health and welfare.
An EPA official told FOXNews.com on Monday that Carlin, who is an economist -- not a scientist -- included "no original research" in his report. The official said that Carlin "has not been muzzled in the agency at all," but stressed that his report was entirely "unsolicited."
"It was something that he did on his own," the official said. "Though he was not qualified, his manager indulged him and allowed him on agency time to draft up ... a set of comments."
Despite the EPA official's remarks, Carlin told FOXNews.com on Monday that his boss, National Center for Environmental Economics Director Al McGartland, appeared to be pressured into reassigning him.
Carlin said he doesn't know whether the White House intervened to suppress his report but claimed it's clear "they would not be happy about it if they knew about it," and that McGartland seemed to be feeling pressure from somewhere up the chain of command.
Carlin said McGartland told him he had to pull him off the climate change issue.
"It was reassigning you or losing my job, and I didn't want to lose my job," Carlin said, paraphrasing what he claimed were McGartland's comments to him. "My inference (was) that he was receiving some sort of higher-level pressure."
Carlin said he personally does not think there is a need to regulate carbon dioxide, since "global temperatures are going down." He said his report expressed a "good bit of doubt" on the connection between the two.
Specifically, the report noted that global temperatures were on a downward trend over the past 11 years, that scientists do not necessarily believe that storms will become more frequent or more intense due to global warming, and that the theory that temperatures will cause Greenland ice to rapidly melt has been "greatly diminished."
Carlin, in a March 16 e-mail, argued that his comments are "valid, significant" and would be critical to the EPA finding.
McGartland, though, wrote back the next day saying he had decided not to forward his comments.
"The administrator and the administration has decided to move forward on endangerment, and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision," he wrote, according to the e-mails released by CEI. "I can only see one impact of your comments given where we are in the process, and that would be a very negative impact on our office."
He later wrote an e-mail urging Carlin to "move on to other issues and subjects."
"I don't want you to spend any additional EPA time on climate change. No papers, no research, etc., at least until we see what EPA is going to do with climate," McGartland wrote.
The EPA said in a written statement that Carlin's opinions were in fact considered, and that he was not even part of the working group dealing with climate change in the first place.
"Claims that this individual's opinions were not considered or studied are entirely false. This administration and this EPA administrator are fully committed to openness, transparency and science-based decision making," the statement said. "The individual in question is not a scientist and was not part of the working group dealing with this issue. Nevertheless the document he submitted was reviewed by his peers and agency scientists, and information from that report was submitted by his manager to those responsible for developing the proposed endangerment finding. In fact, some ideas from that document are included and addressed in the endangerment finding."
The e-mail exchanges and suggestions of political interference sparked a backlash from Republicans in Congress.
Reps. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif., also wrote a letter last week to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson urging the agency to reopen its comment period on the finding. The EPA has since denied the request.
Citing the internal e-mails, the Republican congressmen wrote that the EPA was exhibiting an "agency culture set in a predetermined course."
"It documents at least one instance in which the public was denied access to significant scientific literature and raises substantial questions about what additional evidence may have been suppressed," they wrote.
In a written statement, Issa said the administration is "actively seeking to withhold new data in order to justify a political conclusion."
"I'm sure it was very inconvenient for the EPA to consider a study that contradicted the findings it wanted to reach," Sensenbrenner said in a statement, adding that the "repression" of Carlin's report casts doubt on the entire finding.
Carlin said he's concerned that he's seeing "science being decided at the presidential level."
"Now Mr. Obama is in effect directly or indirectly saying that CO2 causes global temperatures to rise and that we have to do something about it. ... That's normally a scientific judgment and he's in effect judging what the science says," he said. "We need to look at it harder."
The controversy is similar to one under the Bush administration -- only the administration was taking the opposite stance. In that case, scientist James Hansen claimed the administration was trying to keep him from speaking out and calling for reductions in greenhouse gases.
FOX News' Major Garrett contributed to this report.

Barrack's New Ice Cream

In honor of the 44th President of the United States ,

Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream has introduced a new flavor: " Barocky Road "

Barocky Road is a blend of half vanilla, half chocolate, and surrounded by nuts and flakes.
The vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient. The nuts and flakes are all very bitter and hard to swallow.

The cost is $100.00 per scoop.

When purchased it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, but then the ice cream is taken away and given to the person in line behind you.

You are left with an empty wallet and no change, holding an empty cone with no hope of getting any ice cream.

Are you stimulated?
Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas and oil,
as well as current market conditions, the Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off.

I am mad, I am sad, I am disappointed, I want to go to their homes and yell at them. But these are just temporary emotions and won't help a thing. Eight Republicans voted for the Cap and Tax bill, and that after listening for over 3 hours what this will do to the country, the people that have already lost jobs, and after hearing there will be more job losses due to the bill. This bill has nothing to do with energy. It is a huge hidden tax. A tax for ALL americans. When will they wake up, the american people. This morning I talked with several people and asked them to call their rep to vote no on the bill. Shockingly they told me they nothing about it.
I worked hard spreading the word, online on Twitter, Facebook, 912 forums etc. I mass emailed and made phone calls. I am in the 9th MI district and my rep is Gary Peters, a freshman in the house. Mr. Peters, we the people will fire you, you don't cut the mustard. We need people that represent the people of the state of Michigan, that understand what is going on here. You don't have a clue, you have to go. Congressman Ehlers, I commend you for listening to your constituens. I am not from your party or district, but that is ok. This bill has nothing to do with party, it has to do with the American people.
Mr. Schuler, you are fired too. We don't want you. we don't need you.
You eight Republicans should not call yourselves Republicans. You are a disgrace to the party. We know who you are, the whole country knows who you are and all of us, we the people will fire you. There are still good people out there and we will find them and put them in office. By your actions you got all of us fired up, start finding out where your unemployment office is and practice to stand in line.
We the people will continue the fight.

It's a sad day when your friend doesn't want to read your blog, it's even more sad when an Econ Professor from a local college avoids answering your question on why he thinks Obama is at least trying to do the right thing. His answer to me was that I'm passionate about politics and oh, when is your hubby going to retire. Well, sir, with the economy the way it is, probably never. Oh, I wished I was a teleprompter at that moment and have all my talking points in front of me, clear, precise, to the point with a little flare. You see, my problem is, I can write down my thoughts, there are many, so many sometimes I forget them, but eventually I can put a train of thoughts together and get my point out. With a teleprompter I could be more confident and tell the world what I think. So, I've come to the decision that I have to lay out my talking points, clear and precise and be ready for any debate. I will follow the example of the lady that wrote that wonderful letter to Glenn Beck. I will then print out my talking points and carry them with me, I will have them in a word document, ready to be attached to any email.
Upon more self reflection, the name on my blog is justified. Like a Rotti, I get feisty, defensive, emotional about the things I care about, in this case trying to help this country from going down the wrong path, from going too far left, from becoming too socialized, nationalized, communistic, whichever way you want to name it. But being like a Rotti is not a good thing. Like with a real Rotti, some people don't respond well to them or move away, avoiding contact. This is why I either need a teleprompter to keep my passionate emotions under control and since I cannot get a teleprompter I will have to keep my blog going and write out my talking points.

Here is the ladie's letter to Glenn Beck that I will use as a model:

I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me?

Well, these are briefly my views and issues for which I seek representation:

One, illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution. P.S., I'm not a racist. This isn't to be confused with legal immigration.

Two, the TARP bill, I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you no, but did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.

Three: Czars, I want the circumvention of our checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution and honor it.

Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There is more to say.

Five, universal healthcare. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision. Don't you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night and then go on break. Slow down!

Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real obligations. Why don't you start there.

Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes. Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census over with our taxpayer money. I don't trust them with our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.

Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs. That is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person. Why do you want me to hate my employers? Why ‑‑ what do you have against shareholders making a profit?

Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.

Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we'll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. Have you ever ripped off a Band‑Aid? We will pull together. Great things happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.

Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk. Please try ‑‑ please stop manipulating and trying to appease me with clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding things from me.

Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.

Take a breath. Listen to the people. Let's just slow down and get some input from some nonpoliticians on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed reading our bills into law. I am not an activist. I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent. I work. I'm busy. I'm busy. I am busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.

I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained? I do not. It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still cannot. There is such urgency and recklessness in all of the recent spending.

From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it to stop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on you to bring our concerns to Washington. Our president often knows all the right buzzword is unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don't want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we're morons.

We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming. We will be heard and we will be represented. You think we're so busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work , pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone and we are now looking up at you. You have awakened us, the patriotic spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far. Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, we have their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured. They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office. We have cancelled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish. We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not come in violence, but we are angry. You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us when hewill rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.

Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the people are coming.

Thank you, lady from Arizona. You wrote from my heart. Oh, one more thought, Mr. President, I keep my guns, freedom and money, you can keep the change.

I was not surprised when I found this article which is also published in the WSJ that the Canadians no longer feel their health care is so great. Private clinics are popping up all over Canada just as the US is about the embark on to this terrible system that is actually dangerous to all our health.


Congressional Democrats will soon put forward their legislative proposals for reforming health care. Should they succeed, tens of millions of Americans will potentially be joining a new public insurance program and the federal government will increasingly be involved in treatment decisions, says Dr. David Gratzer, a senior fellow with the Manhattan Institute.

Yes, everyone in Canada is covered by a "single payer" -- the government. But Canadians wait for practically any procedure or diagnostic test or specialist consultation in the public system. Meanwhile, Canada's provincial governments themselves rely on American medicine:

Between 2006 and 2008, Ontario sent more than 160 patients to New York and Michigan for emergency neurosurgery -- described by the Globe and Mail newspaper as "broken necks, burst aneurysms and other types of bleeding in or around the brain."
Only half of ER patients are treated in a timely manner by national and international standards, according to a government study.
The physician shortage is so severe that some towns hold lotteries, with the winners gaining access to the local doc.
Overall, according to a study published in Lancet Oncology last year:

Five-year cancer survival rates are higher in the United States than those in Canada.
Based on data from the Joint Canada/U.S. Survey of Health (done by Statistics Canada and the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics), Americans have greater access to preventive screening tests and have higher treatment rates for chronic illnesses.
No wonder, says Gratzer:

To limit the growth in health spending, governments restrict the supply of health care by rationing it through waiting.
The same survey data show, as June and Paul O'Neill note in a paper published in 2007 in the Forum for Health Economics & Policy, that the poor under socialized medicine seem to be less healthy relative to the nonpoor than their American counterparts.
Ironically, as the United States is on the verge of rushing toward government health care, Canada is reforming its system in the opposite direction:

Dr. Brian Day, an orthopedic surgeon and former president of the Canadian Medical Association, estimates that 50,000 people are seen at private clinics every year in British Columbia.
According to the New York Times, a private clinic opens at a rate of about one a week across the country.
Public-private partnerships, once a taboo topic, are embraced by provincial governments.

Health care is one of my major pet peeves with President Obama. He wants to make sure everyone has health care. That's fine, as long as everyone can pay for it. I don't see that the working person should pick up the health care tab for the thousands of illegals and neither for the independent contract worker that chooses not to carry health care insurance. Nowhere in the constitution does it say that I have to be the keeper of John Doe down the street just because he's too lazy to get up and get a job. Nor do I think I should have to pay for uninsured, unwed mothers that already have the opportunity to receive government sponsored birth control. Obama wants to spend billions on health care. Who is going to pay for it? What the government controlled media and Barrack Obama won't tell you is that the employer, which the majority of them already are paying for employee health care, will be taxed approximately an additional 5 % or more and the employee will also be paying the same amount towards his/her health insurance out of his paycheck, like a social security deduction. But where will the money come from to pay for the millions that are not working? I do not believe that at the end of the day the deductions I just mentioned will be enough to cover all people.
But let's assume the bill will pass. What do we get for it? Not much, simple as that. I like my doctors, I chose every one of them and they keep my healthy. I like my meds that I'm taking, they help with pain control. I like the hospitals I use, they give me good care, when I need them not 6 months later. I like my choices, and I don't want to give them up for inferior care, for waiting in long lines in waiting rooms. I am already paying high premiums, but I know what I'm getting for them.
Barrack Obama's health care program will not work in a country this size. I grew up in Germany, it works there. Germany is about the size of Michigan or a little bigger. In Germany, the government matches the percentage the employees have taken out of their paycheck for health insurance, social security. Today that percentage is 7 1/2 %. That covers very basic health care and many Germans have an additional percentage taken out for additional private coverage which gives them more freedom of choices and also a private or semi-private hospital room. This program works over there, but the overall health care is still better in this country. For serious conditions such as heart, cancer etc, we are still so much more advanced and have less death.
In Canada, things are much different. They use the same basic idea as in Germany, but it is illegal to buy additional private insurance. It's one size fits all. We have all heard about the many people that come to this country for serious surgeries for which they would have to wait sometimes up to a year. I live in Michigan close to the border, so we are very aware of this.
Now that I mentioned the pitfalls of government controlled health care, the worst part of it is that once it is installed, there is no going back - not in a country this size. People should think very hard if this is what they want for themselves and their children and grandchildren in the future. It is not a good thing.
Call the following mentioned senators and urge them to vote no on the health care bill:

1. Please have your members, families and friends start melting the phones of the four Republicans listed above. Here are their numbers:
Chuck Grassley 202-224-3744
Olympia Snowe 202-224-5344
Orrin Hatch 202-224-5251
Susan Collins 202-224-2523

Here are more details what to expect: http://tinyurl.com/aau8fj

Let's do this together.

I read the following article on the Michigan We surround you site and I so agree with Dennis Williams from New Hampshire on this. I am afraid if people don't start waking up real soon, and I mean REAL soon, all this blogging, venting, teapartying will be for nothing. Everyone has to get involved to some degree, at least start getting educated, listen carefully to the media and start looking at the new candidates that will be running in 2010 because that's where the first big change has to come from. It's one little baby step at a time, but we must learn to take that step, NOW.

All of the state threads have folks complaining daily about one issue or another but, with rare exception, voters ARE NOT looking at the root cause of all issues - CONGRESS. Other than at the state level, where we have some control should continue to focus, CONGRESS writes the laws that affect us all and often override state laws. This country is marching strait towards TYRANNY and we just don't get it. It isn't good to hollar but - WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!We have got to STOP focusing on symptoms to our problems. We MUST focus on the ROOT of the problems - CONGRESS.When are we going to finally understand this? It frustrates us, here in New Hampshire, that we're still stuck in this rutt and, untill we stop digging a DEEPER AND DEEPER RUTT, we'll continue on our march toward TYRANNY.We've got one more election left to make this decision for ourselves. Either we get rid of the source problem, or LIVE WITH THE RESULT. It's really quite simple to figure out.Get the 5,000 Year Leap out and re-read it until you finally understand what is happening - WE "MUST" BOOT THE BUMS OUT AND SET TERM LIMITS FOR CONGRESS IN 2010.

Something on the lighter side

OBAMA LAND"Not I," said the cow."Not I," said the duck."Not I," said the pig."Not I," said the goose."Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so shedid. She planted her crop, and the wheat grew very tall and ripenedinto golden grain."Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen."Not I," said the duck.."Out of my classification," said the pig."I'd lose my seniority," said the cow."I'd lose my unemployment com…
"Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so shedid. She planted her crop, and the wheat grew very tall and ripenedinto golden grain."Who will help me reap my wheat?" asked the little red hen."Not I," said the duck.."Out of my classification," said the pig."I'd lose my seniority," said the cow."I'd lose my unemployment compensation," said the goose."Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen, and so shedid.At last it came time to bake the bread. "Who will help me bake thebread?" asked the little red hen."That would be overtime for me," said the cow."I'd lose my welfare benefits," said the duck."I'm a dropout and never learned how," said the pig."If I'm to be the only helper, that's discrimination," said the goose."Then I will do it by myself," said the little red hen.She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors tosee. They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share. But thelittle red hen said, "No, I shall eat all five loaves.""Excess profits!" cried the cow. (Nancy Pelosi)"Capitalist leech!" screamed the duck. (Barbara Boxer)"I demand equal rights!" yelled the goose. (Jesse Jackson)The pig just grunted in disdain. (Ted Kennedy)And they all painted 'Unfair!' picket signs and marched around andaround the little red hen, shouting obscenities.Then the farmer (Obama) came. He said to the little red hen, "Youmust not be so greedy.""But I earned the bread," said the little red hen."Exactly," said Barack the farmer. "That is what makes our freeenterprise system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn asmuch as he wants. But under our modern government regulations, theproductive workers must divide the fruits of their labor with thosewho are lazy and idle."And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen,who smiled and clucked, "I am grateful, for now I truly understand."But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her. She never againbaked bread because she joined the 'party' and got her bread free.And all the Democrats smiled. 'Fairness' had been established.Individual initiative had died, but nobody noticed; perhaps no onecared...so long as there was free bread that 'the rich' were payingfor.EPILOGUEBill Clinton is getting $12 million for his memoirs.Hillary got $8 million for hers.That's $20 million for the memories from two people, who for eightyears repeatedly testified, under oath, that they couldn't rememberanything.IS THIS A GREAT BARNYARD OR WHAT?


Is it really possible? A must see video, you won't believe it.



When President Obama first got elected I felt like I was on a sinking ship without a captain. Since then so many bills have been passed and signed and so many promises have been broken that it could make me dizzy. Some days it seems I can't keep up with the speed of which the changes are taking place. That's why I decided to break down the sequence of events to get a better handle on it. When did this breakdown start and what can we do to stop it?
As mentioned I wasn't born here and didn't have to study American history or the Constitution in depth. I read a lot, research the internet and gather valuable information from fellow twitterers and other blog sites. So far I understand that the first big breakdown of our government started with FDR and the New Deal.http://tinyurl.com/5vuf6
As the saying goes, the first time one breaks a rule is hard, it gets easier each time. With each democratic (and some republican) governments we had through the decades we lost a little more freedom and gained more government control.
After reading portions of Mark Levin's book Liberty and Tyranny, I am beginning to understand that we have now entered into the soft tyranny stage and it is high time the American people wake up. This goes across party lines because at the end of the day the loss of freedom will affect all of us. We have become a country out of control and gone wild.
