I am NOT running for Congress, however Star Parker is. I stepped aside so she could run unopposed. Why? I cannot say a negative word against this wonderful lady, and I truly believe she can and will do as good (if not better) a job in Congress as I would have. Besides, do know how much work this takes? It’s ridiculous! I spent more time at the registrar’s office than in my district! That has to change. No wonder we have so many incumbents…

Editor’s Note: I have moved back to Rosemary’s Thoughts if you would like to follow to me there. I am also on Twitter (http://twitter.com/RosemarysNews) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000758244750). See ya around. ;)

Since I last posted here, a lot has happened. I have a blog and and a website now concerning my jump into politics. I do use the blog more often, though. It is easier.

I have been so busy! Oh my. It is good work though. I enjoy it. Well, most of the time. I don’t enjoy getting lost on the bus. I’ll be on the radio today with Twana at Support Our Troops in Word and Deed. (On Blog Talk Radio.) The time depends on which time zone you are in, and I do not know their starting point.

For California, it will either be 4:30, 5:30, or 6:30 pm. On her site it says 7:30, but I have no idea as to which time zone, as I stated. Just go to her site and keep checking.

So how have you all been? You may not believe this, but I have more blogs now than when I started to transfer over to Rosemary’s Thoughts! I wanted to do that, if I remember correctly, so I could put all my writings in one site. Then came The Conservative Underground along with the Smart Girl Politics which is fabulous. Yes, we welcome men to join as well! ;)

Well, I must be running. It’s already after 5am! Have a very nice day.

I have been organizing Tea Parties, petitioning my Congresswoman and Senators, Assemblywoman and State Senator, and I have come to the conclusion that the only way to solve California’s problems is to get rid of everyone in office and replace them with grassroot people like us. In order to do this, we need many volunteers to step up to the plate. This is a grassroots movement politicians. How does the unemployment line look now?

I have met so many talented people while in Long Beach, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and through the internet and on conference calls. I believe there are enough of us to do what needs to be done.

Many may ask (or say) that we have no experience in politics. For some of us this is true, others of us have helped at campaigns. Those of us who have helped at campaigns I believe are sick and tired of elected liars and have been very disappointed at all the broken promises.

So what and who am I? I am a Conservative who loves animals, sports, family, the Military, the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. I am a pro-life, Evangalical Christian who believes the government has crossed the line. Which one, you ask? Good question, since they’ve crossed so many.

No government has the right to deprive a city, town, or individual of their livlihood without fair compensation [See 5th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States]. This has been so distorted that there are citizens within our Central Valley that have ZERO water because of a stupid ALIEN fish. That is correct. It’s origins are NOT the Delta. So why don’t they catch them all and let them go somewhere else? Because that makes sense!

That is just one example of government intrusion. How do you like these new showerheads that moniter how fast the water is coming out? I’ll tell you what, I’m tired of running around in the shower trying to get wet!

There are 5000 committees which pay very nicely (we have 5000+ cases of ‘taxation without represention’), some or most receive over $100,000 per year for meeting once a month. Yes, these are termed-out politicians. They all need to be shut down. That includes you too, CARB [California Air Resources Bureau(?)]. TURN THE WATER ON!

I question whether or not I am a free marketer, or if the people who use that term realize what an oxymoron it is. Let’s take a quick look at China. That country that sold and/or watch as almost all of nuclear arms flowed into N. Korea’s warchest. We don’t charge China for the junk they bring into our country to undercut our own manufacturers, yet we have to pay tarriffs and wonder still if they will come and take our companies. Hmm. Is that free-marketing? Not in my eyes. If I’m wrong, please explain to me why trading with an enemy of America is ‘free’?

I am interested in foreign policy issues, but I believe our state is in much more need of fixing. Although someone should still run against Congresswoman Richardson. She has stayed in office only because no one opposes her.

In the State of California, we should have a Right to Work Law. As most of us have seen, ACORN is a corrupt organization, and they have their tenacles everywhere, such as the SEIU and other unions. I do not believe Californians should be penalized or forced to have their money stolen from them when they choose not to belong to a union. However if they choose to belong to a union, that’s a different story. But it should not be any of our business! Don’t we have enough to fix?

Well, I’ve addressed only a few of my concerns. I’d really like to talk about the schools and my easy solution to some of the problems. Make the principle the boss. Let the teachers teach reading, writing, math, history, American History, languages if they choose, art, sports, Excercise, etc. Teachers are closest to their students so they know what is needed. You will never be able to convince me that someone in DC knows what is better for our students than do our parents and teachers. Never.

So, should I run for California State Assembly District 54? I would like your feedback. If I receive a good amount of comments, I will start an exploratory committee. Until then, I have to wait. Why? I don’t know too many people. Yes, I know this is a drawback, but that’s what hitting the pavement is for! On the brighter side, I have fresher ideas and the passion to go along with them. Being a Citizen Representative may be just the shot in the arm this state needs. What say you?

I’d like to thank all of you in advance for your comments, suggestions, critiques, etc. I cannot eccept any money yet, so don’t ask why I don’t have it set up yet. Without officially opening the exploratory committee, I cannot receive monies for this purpose. I’ll let you know where to find the site I set up so you contribute once everything is in motion. God bless you, and be safe.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

It appears as if President Obama does not really care about womens’ rights, freedom, Liberty, the 1st or 2nd (or any) Amendments, so Iranian dissidents have turned their eyes toward an unexpected neighbor. Israel. Here is an excerpt:

Iranian Dissident: Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters – Help Us!
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

“Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters,” writes Iranian dissident Arash Irandoost, “Iran needs your help more than ever now. And we will be eternally grateful. Please help opposition television and radio stations which are blocked and being jammed by the Islamic Republic (Nokia and Siemens) resume broadcast to Iran. There is a total media blackout and Iranians inside Iran for the most part are not aware of their brave brothers and sisters fighting and losing their lives daily. And the unjust treatment and brutal massacre of the brave Iranians in the hands of the mullah’s paid terrorist Hamas and Hizbullah gangs are not seen by the majority of the Iranians. Please help in any way you can to allow these stations resume broadcasting to Iran.

“And, please remember that we will remember, as you have remembered Cyrus the Great’s treatment of you in your time of need,” Irandoost concludes, signing his blogged call for help “Your Iranian Brothers and Sisters!” [Please read the whole article at Israel News.]

What is happening is atrocious, and the world remains silent. Is this how Hitler rose to power? I thought we swore, “Never again!”? Shall we sit here, comfortably, getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July? What does the 4th of July really mean to you if you can sit by and say nothing?

These are our brothers and sisters. Especially if you are a Christian. What can we do, you ask yourself or me? We can burn the phone lines down calling President Obama (1-202-456-1111) and let him know what you think of his silence! You can call your representatives (1-202-224-3121 or 225-3121, they both work) and encourage them to speak out for the dissidents in Iran. We can also encourage them to put the money back into the fund set up by the Republicans and some Democrats for the Iranian dissidents. We can help them with news through TV stations that the mullahs won’t have the time to block, at least not all of them! We can also use the radio. Whatever ideas you have, share them.

Where are all the Muslims who rallied when you thought it possible that any type of book could be flushed down a toilet let alone a Koran? WHERE IS YOUR VOICE? Do you not see the horror? Or do you approve of it? How about it CAIR? Yes, I guess we know where you stand.

Let me tell you something, though. There were people protesting all across this nation. I did notice you. There were probably more of you than any TV station is about to admit, which leads me to question whether or not we truly do have a free press or just a lazy one? From New York City to California. From sea to shining sea. Yes, injustice was proclaimed by the PEOPLE, not by these so-called groups that claim to represent you. Please remember this the next time they start squaking. It’s probably for their masters. Do you really want to please those dictators? I didn’t think so.

Everyone stay safe, keep praying, keep protesting, and come to my Tea Party on the 4th of July at Bixby Park, 130 Cherry Ave, Long Beach, California. We shall be having a moment of silence, and I will be wearing a green t-shirts. What is right is right, and it doesn’t matter that it’s not happening here. The truth is, it most certainly could. We must all be grateful. Have a nice day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Sad

There are two cartoons today that capture the mood of many. For those of you who’ve been somewhere in the woods for the past week or so, President Obama has released those Chinese terrorists from Gitmo to go to Bermuda on our dime. Yup. They’re living the life of luxury that 2996 of our fellow citizens never had the opportunity to do because these scumbags murdered them on September 11, 2001. Even if it wasn’t them personally, they’re with the monsters who did. Here are the cartoons. They speak for themselves.

Hat tip: Michael Ramirez and nbradfield.

This next cartoon is an oldie but relevant.

Hat tip: Chris (from Day by Day).

If you cannot read the writings, please click on the picture. I’ve added their links for you. Have a nice day. I’m sure it will be nicer than the one they’re having in Iran, but then again, they’re fighting for freedom and Liberty. What are you fighting for again? Sad.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

This is a link to a video of what is happening in Tehran today. It is not as graphic as some others I’ve heard about. I can only say that because I cannot bear to watch them.

Here are some articles:

پخش زنده برنامه های تلويزيونی فائزه هاشمی آزاد شد “ده کشته” و “یکصد زخمی” در درگیری های دیروز تهران چه کسانی پس از اعلام نتایج انتخابات بازداشت شده اند؟ درخواست موسوی از مردم حین درگیری های تهران

Oh my. You don’t read Farsi, do you? How about this? Try the Google Translator. Remember to copy the text you want to translate, then click on Google translator.

Here is the link to the article and video from BBC news. I like the way the protesters back down the monsters who are doing the killing. Animals.

UPDATE: This just in from Winston. The title of this is “Iran Street Clashes Despite ‘Several Deaths'”, but I call it “Afraid No More!” (Video by MiddleEastNews from SkyNews tv.)

Do you think maybe they’ve been watching too many American news reports? Agh. So what! They have had it with their oppressors, and I’m glad. Let us pray for their safety, success, freedom, Liberty, and sense of responsibility. Let them truly enter the community of the world with peace. Amen.

PS. If you disagree, I don’t care. I understand the risks. What if someone worse comes along, right? I do not believe they will stand for it. Not after being oppressed for 30 years. Ask the Iraqis.

PSS. I do care. What I meant by what I said is that I’ve been following Iran for many years now, and I’ve also been praying for them. Are you aware there are over one million Christians in Iran and several Jews? Yes. This is a fact. So do I care about the Muslims? Not the ones who are doing all the murdering but yes, I do. God did not make just some of us. When He sent His Son to earth as our Saviour, He sent Him for everyone. Not just you and me. We should all care. That’s all.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

This is a moving video, that is, if you have a heart, if you cherish Liberty, if you demand freedom and justice, if you hate tyrants. I guess I answered my own question. *sigh*

پارلمان اروپا علیه احمدی نژاد<

پارلمان اروپا علیه احمدی نژاد رای داد( Video with english translation) دیروز سه شنبه 16 ژوئن ساعت 2 تا 3 بعدازظهر مرجان ساتراپی و محسن مخملباف در نشست رسمی پارلمان اروپا در شهر بروکسل به عنوان سفرا…

Hat tip: A friend from TweetChat and mmakhmalbaf. June 17, 2009. (If the video link doesn’t work, go to YouTube and watch it there.)

Do not use names on #iranelection, and change your profile before going to TweetChat. Also, change your Avitar to the color green. If you know how to do this, PLZ let me know so I can do that as well. *blush*

I have a question I would like you to ponder. Why is it that Europe, the last people to recognize evil when it’s right in front of their faces, has the tenacity and fortitude to invite Marjan Satrapi and Mohsen Makhmalbef in front of their parliament while our president is determined “not to take sides”? Have we all gone mad?

For the sake of clarity, I stand with the Iranian people and against the Iranian regime. Nuf said. Please send up some prayers for our brothers and sisters in Iran. If we all stand together, we can bring down this regime, bring freedom, dignity, Liberty, human rights and justice to the Iranian people without ever firing a shot. Would that be the sweetest victory of all? Have a nice evening.

Don’t forget to check out the latest on Winston’s site and his Twitter. Very good reporting and updated frequently. (Yes, I’ve been busy trying to read his posts, Twitter, TweetChat, e-mails, fixing my computer, and getting ready for the July 4th Tea Party. If you have sent me a question or an e-mail, please be patient. I have not forgotten you.)

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
