I Heart Paul McRyan!!

Hat tip: Gateway Pundit

Yes, I had to take a page out of the playbook that was used to call Scott Brown, Hottie McAwesome!! McRyan has me smitten in more ways than one. He is the whole political package, and then some!!

He hits a home run yet again on the economic front talking about the failure of Obama's "stimulus" plan. He starts out with this:
Over a year ago, Congress enacted a stimulus bill that spread huge spending increases across the government. By every objective measure – from jobs and economic growth to the rising price tag – the stimulus has failed.

It has failed to create the jobs promised. Rather than “save or create” 3 to 4 million jobs, the economy has shed 2.7 million jobs since the stimulus passed. It has failed to keep the unemployment rate below 8% as promised. Unemployment still hovers near 10 percent.
His Conclusion:
The American people are fed up with the relentless push to spend money we don’t have, add to our crushing burden of debt, and evade accountability for the dismal results.

We need to chart a new course. Let’s cancel the remaining stimulus funds, get a grip on runaway government spending, and advance pro-growth economic policies. We need to spur sustained job creation, rebuild confidence in our future, and restart the American engine of prosperity.
McRyan also educates Chris Matthews on how the economy works! Matthews looked like he could've played a part on the movie, Clueless!!

If McRyan ever wants to run for President, I will be first in line to work on his campaign!!

More August 3rd Picks...

The upcoming primary on August 3rd is one of the biggest and most important primaries in recent memory. The biggest issue is of course, Proposition C.

Yet, there are a slew of primary races on the both the Republican and Democrat sides. I've already given my support for Jay Jones for Clay County Auditor. There are a couple of other races I'd like to mention.

The race for Clay County Recorder of Deeds is between Mike Ebenroth and Jay Lawson. For most Republicans this should be a no brainer, since Jay Lawson seems to switch parties depending upon which office he is running for.

When it comes to the 35th District there are 2 good Conservative candidates running, although sorry guys, no one will be able to fill Doug Ervin's shoes since he is term limited out. The two candidates are TJ Berry and Noel Shull and while the 35th district will be represented well with either one I am supporting TJ Berry. Andrew at ClayCoMO has more info on both candidates.

I will have more either before August 3rd and/or I will post my sample ballot picks on August 2nd.

Any questions on my picks, just shoot me an email!!

Vote for Jay Jones for Clay County Auditor!!

This race is a great example of why we need more people involved and informed about local politics. Please join me in supporting Jay Jones for Clay County Auditor in August when you go to the polls. While you are there don’t forget to vote for the Health Care Freedom Act and tell Mr. Obama that you don’t like his health care plan either.~~Andrew at ClayCoMOPolitics

Jay Jones has been a resident of Clay County for 33 years and has "29 years of progressively responsible experience in accounting, auditing, finance and tax planning, both in private industry as well as public accounting."

I am also endorsing Jay Jones in the August 3rd Republican primary. To learn more about Jones, check out the Liberty Tribune's profile.
Also, there seems to be some concerns about Jones' opponent, William Norris' qualifications.

Vote Yes on Proposition C on August 3rd for Healthcare Freedom!

State Senator Jane Cunningham does a great job of explaining MHCFA (Missouri Health Care Freedom Act), Proposition C in the above video.

Below is how Proposition C will appear on the August 3rd ballot:
Shall the Missouri Statutes be amended to:

* Deny the government authority to penalize citizens for refusing to purchase private health insurance or infringe upon the right to offer or accept direct payment for lawful healthcare services?
* Modify laws regarding the liquidation of certain domestic insurance companies?

It is estimated this proposal will have no immediate costs or savings to state or local governmental entities. However, because of the uncertain interaction of the proposal with implementation of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, future costs to state governmental entities are unknown.
To read the entire text, go here!

State Representative Tim Jones makes the case for Proposition C. Here is an excerpt:
In less than a month, Missouri will be the first state in our nation to vote on a referendum on the federal health care law that was passed earlier this year. A measure, known as the “Health Care Freedom Act,” passed the Missouri legislature earlier this year and has been put on the August ballot in Missouri.

If approved by voters, the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act would create statutory protections against government mandated insurance and ensure that Missourians continue to possess the ability to make their own health care decisions. In light of the new federal health care laws and all of the weekly bad news that continues to be “discovered” about ObamaCare, Missouri needs these protections.

It is clear that Missourians not only oppose the new federal health care law, but also the individual insurance mandate in the new law that would force individuals to purchase health insurance, or face fines and penalties. Equally troubling for Missourians are the nearly weekly updates from the Congressional Budget Office that show that, instead of reducing the federal deficits, ObamaCare will cost an additional 800 billion dollars over the next ten years.

Because of these concerns, a Rasmussen poll released this week showed that a clear majority of Missourians still want the new federal bill repealed. Even though this opposition was made clear in town halls and tea parties, Congress passed the bill against the objections of Americans.

In an effort to protect Missourians from this dangerous encroachment on our freedoms, a bipartisan super majority of state legislators supported the Health Care Freedom Act during the 2010 legislative session.

The Act contains two major provisions: protections for Missourians from being forced to purchase health insurance and a prohibition against government fines and penalties for refusing to purchase insurance. This legislation was crafted because Missourians are far more capable of making their own health care decisions than Washington politicians and bureaucrats.

Iranian Woman's Possible Stoning Finally Sparks Worldwide Outrage!

So many women don't have basic human rights in the Middle East. Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani's story is just one of many women who face executions for crimes they don't even commit. After international pressure, the Iranian embassy is now saying that Ashtiani won't be stoned. Yet, reports had been out that she had been convicted of adultery and had been sentenced to death by stoning.

Sean Hannity and scores of others were speaking out, while noticing Obama's silence. Nevertheless, this time it appears enough may have spoken up.

Yet, it doesn't touch the problem that millions of women face all over the Middle East. Since, I am doing research on women this year, I have been reading about just such women. Over the next week I will be touching on some of the very stories that have popped up recently dealing with the plights of some of these women:
~~I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced
~~U.S. Journalist Roxana Saberi Finally Freed from Iranian Prison!
~~The Stoning of Soraya M.

Happy Independence Day!!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (and women ;-)) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happines!!~~Thomas Jefferson

God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood, always brings tears to my eyes. A great song about our great country.

John Stossel had a great show on Fox last night entitled, What's Great About America. It reminds us of why we can be so proud of our country.

Two Rock Star Republican Governors!!

President Obama was in my hometown of Racine, Wisconsin on Wednesday talking about the economy and eating Kringle (my favorite, and they only make it in Racine).

Yesterday, he headed back to D.C. to give a talk on Immigration. He started off with a condescending lecture of the problems we are now having with illegal immigration, as if the entire country hasn't known them for years. Then, instead of supporting the great efforts that Governor Jan Brewer and her state of Arizona has made, he decided to trash them. Here is an excerpt:
Into this breach, states like Arizona have decided to take matters into their own hands. Given the levels of frustration across the country, this is understandable. But it is also ill conceived. And it’s not just that the law Arizona passed is divisive -– although it has fanned the flames of an already contentious debate. Laws like Arizona’s put huge pressures on local law enforcement to enforce rules that ultimately are unenforceable. It puts pressure on already hard-strapped state and local budgets. It makes it difficult for people here illegally to report crimes -– driving a wedge between communities and law enforcement, making our streets more dangerous and the jobs of our police officers more difficult.

And you don’t have to take my word for this. You can speak to the police chiefs and others from law enforcement here today who will tell you the same thing.

These laws also have the potential of violating the rights of innocent American citizens and legal residents, making them subject to possible stops or questioning because of what they look like or how they sound. And as other states and localities go their own ways, we face the prospect that different rules for immigration will apply in different parts of the country -– a patchwork of local immigration rules where we all know one clear national standard is needed.
If I had the time, I could take apart those paragraphs and show how each one is fundamentally false. Ridiculous!!

Governor Jan Brewer was on Greta last night and she did a phenomenal job. I am adding her to the tough, rock star female list and the great Governors list. Kudos to her for standing up for her state and her people on an issue that is extremely important and needs to be dealt with now.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was on Neil Cavuto's show last week, and color me impressed. I liked everything about him. He is indeed a Republican Rock Star. Cavuto asked him about running for President and he said that he wants to finish his term as Governor, hmmmmmmmmm.... Check out the video, he is becoming a YouTube sensation!!
