Nah! This can't be true. Can it? No Way ! Way.

A very "STIMULATING" story !!

Take for instance Oregon State University Athletic Director

Bob DeCarolis.

Now Mr. DeCarolis was considering firing their

Basketball Coach......

Craig Robinson

after an

8 -11 start (2-5) in the Pac 10 conference).

When word reached Washington ,

Undersecretary of Education

Martha Kanter

was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million

in stimulus money for the university.

Thankfully,Craig Robinson's job is

safe for another year

Now comes the interesting part of our story...

For those of you unfamiliar with

Coach Robinson,

he just so happens to be the brother in law

of none other than our country's

beloved President,


that's right he is the brother of

Michelle Obama!

But hey, can't we all come to the conclusion

that Coach Robinson's job security

was all just a coincidence?

I'm sure of it ... Aren't You?

Thank Goodness For The Stimulus!!!

But $17 million for one job? I wonder what mine is worth?

If this doesn't anger you, nothing will... remember to vote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can the President Kill You?

By Judge Andrew Napolitano - Thursday, March 8, 2012

Can the president kill an American simply because the person is dangerous and his arrest would be impractical? Can the president be judge, jury and executioner of an American in a foreign country because he believes that would keep America safe? Can Congress authorize the president to do this?

Earlier this week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder attempted to justify presidential killing in a speech at Northwestern University law school. In it, he recognized the requirement of the Fifth Amendment for due process. He argued that the president may substitute the traditionally understood due process — a public jury trial — with the president’s own novel version of it; that would be a secret deliberation about killing. Without mentioning the name of the American the president recently ordered killed, Holder suggested that the president’s careful consideration of the case of New Mexico-born Anwar al-Awlaki constituted a substituted form of due process.

Robert’s Response: What Matters is Liberty and Freedom, Not the Chevy Volt

By Robert Ringer - Thursday, March 8, 2012

In response to my Insight about the Chevy Volt, reader “WTF” commented, in part:

You folks are a bunch of traitorous sheep. Wishing the Volt to be gone puts thousands of Americans out of work – I only wish the SAME for each of you. It is an engineering marvel, runs 40-44 miles on electricity, which is a round-trip commute for most people, and in the South, that’s 7-10 cents per kWh.

You folks should take your heads out of your you-know-what, swing by a Chevy dealer, and at least SEE what you’re complaining about. This car was in the works WAY before the bailout, and while you morons are spending $5 or more per gallon and crying and whining, Volt drivers will be laughing at you at 2-3 cents per mile.

As is so often the case when a specific issue is debated, the broader, more important issue(s) is lost in the shuffle. The real issue is freedom. The real issue is free markets. The real issue is the Constitution. The real issue is adherence to the law of the land.

I do not wish the Volt to be gone. I just want the free market to decide whether or not it should survive. If people, of their own free will, believe it’s worth the price, they’ll buy the Volt and GM will continue to produce it. If not, the car will go out of production, as it should. Creative destruction is a vital part of keeping the marketplace healthy.

GM and Big Brother have violated the law. The quid pro quo from the government was: “Screw your equity holders and give up control to our union supporters, and, in return, we’ll allow you to feed at the government’s corporate-welfare trough.”

Whether or not the Volt was “in the works” before the bailout is irrelevant. What is relevant is that taxpayers were forced to bail out GM. In my view, that was a criminal act.

If the Volt were the greatest car ever produced, it wouldn’t matter. Even if millions of people wanted to buy it, it wouldn’t matter. What matters is our liberty, and when the government becomes involved in anything other than defending the Constitution, our liberty is violated.

Liberty must be given a higher priority than all other objectives — including a politician’s desire to do good things for people. As Senator Jim DeMint points out in his constitutionally grounded book, Now or Never, it’s not the government’s job to do good things. Its job is to protect our natural rights.

Whether or not America survives much longer may well depend upon how many people can be brought around to understanding this fundamental truth.

*Now here's something to think about.*

When I was about 9 years old I remember asking my dad about Castro . I asked, "Is Castro a good guy or bad?"

Dad said...he couldn't tell!! This was about 1955. We were living in Louisiana the time. Dad was in the Army and stationed there.

Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.

This past July 4th, we had the pleasure of sharing a summer barbecue with a refugee from Cuba. Our dinner conversation was starkly different than most.

This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960's. His family was more fortunate than most, as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary paradise.

Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, fresh ears of sweet corn and watermelon. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide...while celebrating the birth of our beloved America ...on the Fourth of July.

We began with a simple discussion about our country, and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington.

But then he said it. The sentence flowed naturally from our refugee guest. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist".

We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."

The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, "You mean just like Barack Obama?"

He responded; "Yes, just like Barack Obama." He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied."

I also remember my uncle saying; “Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries. He will never come and take our family hardware store!!” But that is exactly what happened. Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that four-bedroom home you is now our property too. You have to move yourself and the five children into those two rooms of the house, because others are moving in here with you."

The lesson learned from this discussion, is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office, they can take totally unexpected turns.

If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors or Chrysler would be nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society...would be evaporating, just like it did in Castro's Cuba in the early 1960's. But the news of injustice keeps increasing; Black Panthers are not charged with wrong doing by the U.S. Department of Justice...because their crimes are against whites; The bond holders of GM are stripped of their assets...without being given due process by the government; Car Dealerships are closed with out due process; Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight...only to have all investigation of the crimes the Attorney General;
The U.S. borders are over run with crime and illegal activity, and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers...while the innocent are killed and over run; When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed...and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.

Without the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution is a sham!! Without the rule of law, our beloved Americais swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As an author recently and so eloquently explained in her most recent book..."a culture of corruption has replaced honest government" (Michelle Malkin).

The only way this problem will be fixed, is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated equally, must come together...and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law...end now!! And yes, it can happen if we all pull together. PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!! And...may God save the United States of America! *

*...the very least you can do is forward this email. 6 million plus Jews didn't believe it could happen in Germany either!!! If you're a Christian in these United States of America, you're probably next on the list. History bares that out. The real problem here is, the boy from Cuba did manage to make it to the U.S. Today he and we will not have any place to escape to...except death!
