As A Mom...A Sisterhood of Mommy Patriots

"The Machine"
I'll make this as short as possible because I know everyone has tired eyes from reading so much. I just looked at a note here about not really wanting to vote because of the choices. We are new, all of us: AsAMoms, 9-12, Tea Party, etc. We have come a long way in a relatively short time. We knew we had a lot of work to do. We had to do it in the primaries and at the State conventions. Other than that, we don't have much choice. Except this:

First let's look at some of the basics of the big picture.

Morality: Christians, Jews and Muslims especially since the 60's have seen a degradation of our society. We have listened to the leaders say "Freedom of speech," have watched people cry on TV in order to get their immorality legalized, and then we have gone inside our houses, churches or temples, small communities and tried to hide our families from those aspects that opposed our belief systems. We haven't known or trusted each other, seeing more the things that separate us than the things we all share in common.
Education: So many have watched the loss of authority of the great teachers, the lack of quality education of so many teachers and the behaviors in the schools falling to new depths. People who can, pull their children out of the public schools and take their voice with them.
Media: They beat America down with their constant immorality and the guilt they made good people feel just for having opportunity and taking advantage of their freedoms. They have pointed out the corruption as the norm for those aspects of society they wanted to do away with. And they have lauded the very opposite of what many Americans believe.
Law and order: There has been a rapid degradation of the morale of the police and military (like has been for great educators and pastors) by the liberals, the ACLU, and the media pointing out a few bad examples and holding them up as the norm. The courts have nearly made it impossible for them to do their work. Helter-skelter was the cry of Charles Manson and his followers in the 60's including the Weathermen.

All of this was asked for by an Italian Socialist named Gramsci who deplored the fact that Communism could not take root in the West because of the individual responsibility, morality and simple caring proclaimed by the churches; the excellent free education systems and the Judeo-Christian work ethic. Alinsky gave the means and the methods, Cloward-Piven gave the strategies, the Weathermen/SDS and the Black Panthers gave them the platform and the people. As of late, Soros and others have funded them.

Numbers in elections are important. To gather as many people as possible, the Socialists picked on the fallibility of humans, making their human weaknesses appear acceptable instead of being something to overcome and conquer.
"The Big Tent" brought in more and more people who wanted to be counted as important and their actions as acceptable.
As the Liberals passed laws wanted, there was no place for them to go but further left. Many old time Democrats do not recognize their party today but have a difficult time voting for the people who were their "enemy" in the old days. Many of the GOP, wanting to keep their jobs, followed suit instead of telling us the truth and risk losing their jobs.

Looking to the future: We all know that the Speaker of the House and the leader of the Senate are from the majority party. They determine what bills get to the floor in each House of Congress.
But also we must understand that the selection of the Chair of each Committee in the branches of Congress depends on the numbers in the political parties dominating that committee. And that domination is determined on a percentage basis by the numbers of each party elected to Congress. These people develop the bills and the language in the bills (in theory) and what bill is put forward for consideration.
We know that for special instances, like impeachment and trial, a certain percentage of the House or Senate has to be on board. To override a Presidential veto, there has to be a certain percentage of the Senate to be on board. To approve a treaty, a certain percentage of Senators has to agree. Even the numbers of aides is dependent on the numbers of each party in Congress. Whoever has the majority, then all that is determined in Congress depends on only that party especially if there is what is called a "Super Majority." In that case, one party alone has the power to "write the bills" and forward them and then vote on them. We understand also that certain numbers are needed for cloture, a procedure used to end debate on a bill.

The Machine: My Jr year in high school, I had a government teacher tell me something that may have been the most important thing I have ever heard when I asked him the difference between Christianity and pure Communism. He said, "If you understand Christianity, you know that people are flawed. And their biggest flaw is that they want to be God: in whatever situation they can muster. Families, communities, churches, the country or the world. There is no such thing as "Pure Communism." Socialism, theoretically, is a step to Communism but those people who have attained elitism will never, ever, ever give up on their God-like powers, for themselves or their families in the future. It is like a kingship with feudal powers given to their friends and can be voted in by an unsuspecting citizenry with promises of happiness and prosperity for all." Therefore, there never will be "pure Communism" where all people are equal. Only in a Republic like America are all people equal through equal opportunity.

And so our first step is to stop the machine. Our second step is to make sure that those who get or retain power know their time is limited. We must, first and foremost, stop the machine and the power they wield.

We do know that they know we are here and they do know Americans do not approve. It is evident from the voter fraud they must utilize to get their puppets in. It is evident by the corruption of the Secretaries of States who certify the voter registrations. America does not want this. And so we must vote out the machine. We must work the polls. We must be election judges. We must educate the electorate. That is our only choice. It will take time and effort, each of us using our gifts as we can. But we will do it.

If you are not sure of the terms used here or of the people or groups mentioned here, please do a search on your favorite search engine or here on asamom to find what and who these people are and what they have proposed. Our future as a country depends not only on your vote but also depends on your comfort with the background so you can educate others.

History Will Be Made On November 2! YOU Can Be A Part Of It!

We are living in historical times, friends. Absolutely historical. There is more energy and enthusiasm for the upcoming mid-term election than at any other time in history! Why? For many reasons. One such example follows. A friend sent it to me, and I hope you will send it on to as many people as you know.

For years I have heard, my vote doesn't matter. Well, even if that was the case in the past, it is not now! Your vote matters and can change the tide America finds herself being drowned in today. Please, if you have never voted in a mid-term election before, do so this November 2nd. And, motivate everyone you know to do the same.

History will be made right before our eyes.

Another Obama Nightmare

Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?

That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home etc.

When did this happen? It's in the healthcare bill. Just thought you should know.



Under the new health care bill - did you know that all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% SalesTax? The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013 (presumably after Obama's re-election).

You can thank Nancy, Harry and Barack and your local Democrat Congressman for this one. If you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Is this Hope & Change great or what? Does this stuff makes your November and 2012 votes more important?

Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either (result of clandestine midnight voting for huge bills they've never read). AND, there are a few other surprises lurking. Why am I sending you this? The same reason I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book, on Facebook, on Twitter...everywhere!

People have the right to know the truth because an election is coming in November.

Enough of the Hope and Change that has become Despair and Destruction. We don't need to transform America, we need to RESTORE America. This begins on November 2nd! Please, get out and VOTE!

Morning Bell: Do You Wish You Could Choose Your Child’s Teacher? | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.

The beginning of each new school year is an emotional, stressful, and chaotic time in our home. As a Mom, just getting a "feel" for each of the teachers, their expectations, and coordinating all of the kids' schedules, is overwhelming to me. Not to mention that fact that I now have "middle schoolers", who have different teachers for different subjects. If it's hard on me, its got to be even harder on my kids.
We had tears last night because my daughter took the wrong folder to class. The teacher refused to allow her to get the correct one from her locker...the one with her assignment in it. Thus, she earned a big fat 0. Ironically, this was my son's favorite teacher last year. Kind of makes one wonder if the teacher favors boys over girls, or is just setting the tone for the rest of the year. I can only hope it is the latter. I have no control over the situation, and just have to sit back and wait to see how things pan out.
I hate it. I am the Mom. It is difficult for me to entrust my children's learning and well-being to virtual strangers at the beginning of every school year. I allow the school to have the privelage of my children to teach. But, I realize that I really don't have to. I don't have to send them to public school. I could send them to a private institution, or even homeschool. However, up to this point, the positives have outweighed the negatives. Plus, I have to honestly say that there are some absolutely wonderful and dedicated teachers and administrators, that have listened to me as a parent, and have even taken action when needed. I am blessed to know them. But, even more, my children are blessed to have them in their lives, looking out for their best interests. Not just because it is their job, but because they actually care and want my children...all succeed in life.
In my opinion, we need more of them. Enough of the teachers just punching time cards, waiting for their summer break. Enough of the teachers who do just enough to just get by. Enough of the teachers who refuse to go above and beyond the call of duty, if it means inconveniencing them and their lesson plan for the day. And enough of the government controlling what the teachers teach every day...leaving no room for creativity and deviation from the state mandated curriculum. Enough, enough, enough! My children, all children, deserve better...they deserve the BEST! And, if the teachers don't want to give their best, then they should stay home and let someone else, who is enthusiastic, motivated, and dedicated to teaching, with an actual LOVE for CHILDREN, earn the taxpayers money. I'm just sayin'.
Wow, where did all of that come from? All of that just to introduce the following article. Oh well, happy reading!

Glenn Beck's Happy Warriors

This is who we REALLY are...peaceful, respectful, God-loving, hard-working, family-devoted, patriotic Americans!
I watched Glenn's show on Monday, following the rally, and it actually brought me to tears...several times. If you can, DVR it at 5 pm. Monday through Friday. (Fridays are always devoted to history.) I never knew how much I didn't learn in school! Give it a fair chance. I don't think you'll be sorry.

You probably couldn't have found a more polite crowd at the opera.
Wall Street Journal
Washington, D.C.

Pundits will debate whether the crowd at Glenn Beck's Saturday rally in Washington was the largest in recent political history, but it was certainly among the most impressive.

Mr. Beck is a television host and radio broadcaster with a checkered past and a penchant for incendiary remarks. But if he's judged by the quality of people of all colors that he attracted to the Lincoln Memorial, his stock can't help but rise.

Jason Riley discusses Glenn Beck's rally at the Lincoln Memorial.
.One would not be able to find a more polite crowd at a political convention, certainly not at a professional sporting event, probably not even at an opera. In fact, judging by the behavior of the attendees following the event, you'd have a tough time finding churches in which people display more patience as others make their way to the exits.

This army of well-mannered folks that marched into Washington seemed comprised mainly of people who had once marched in the U.S. Army or other military branch, or at least had a family member who had. Perhaps that's not surprising, given that the event was a fund-raiser for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides scholarships to the children of elite troops killed in the performance of their duty. The day was largely devoted to expressions of gratitude for the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers, for great men of American history like the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and for God.

But it didn't end there. Dave Roever, a Vietnam veteran, offered a closing prayer in which he thanked the Lord for the president and for the Congress. Despite the unpopularity of the latter two, no booing or catcalls could be heard.

Perhaps feeling defensive about how they would be portrayed in media reports, various attendees wore t-shirts noting that they were "Not violent" or "Non-violent." For other participants, there was no need for an explicit message. Relaxed young parents felt comfortable enough to push toddlers in strollers through the crowded areas along the memorial's reflecting pool.

Not only was the rally akin to a "huge church picnic" (in one Journal reporter's description), but one had to wonder if the over-achievers in this crowd actually left the area in better shape than they found it.

After the event, walking from the Lincoln Memorial's reflecting pool through Constitution Gardens, this reporter scanned 360 degrees and could not see a scrap of trash anywhere. Participants and volunteers had collected all their refuse and left it piled neatly in bags around the public garbage cans. Near Constitution Avenue, I did encounter one stray piece of paper—but too old and faded to have been left that day.

Given the huge representation of military families at the event, maybe it's not surprising the grounds were left ship-shape. A principal theme of the day was that attendees should restore the country by making improvements in their own lives—be the change you wish to see in the world, as Gandhi once put it.

Most of the participants were strictly amateurs in the business of activism. For many, it was their first appearance at a public demonstration. Their strikingly mild-mannered nature might inspire even Mr. Beck to acknowledge that in a crowd estimated at 300,000, the craziest person at the event might have been the one with the microphone. While he admits that he's part entertainer and prone to over-the-top comments, his followers appear to be sincerely responding to his message that Americans need to cling to their best traditions. (Mr. Beck's program appears on the Fox News Channel, which is owned by News Corp., which also owns this newspaper.)

The conservative Mr. Beck's ability to draw this many people to Washington may suggest enormous gains for Republicans come the fall. But the GOP shouldn't expect voters to simply hand them a congressional majority without making them earn it. If pregame chatter and off-season optimism translated into victory, the New York Jets and the Washington Redskins would meet in the Super Bowl every year.

Between Saturday's crowd in Washington and the tea partiers agitating for limited government, we may be witnessing the rebuilding of the Reagan coalition, the "fusion" of religious and economic conservatives that political theorist Frank Meyer once endorsed. Reagan always believed that the Republican Party was the natural home for this movement, but GOP leaders in Washington need to prove they are worthy of it.

7 Reasons Why The Prez Has Lost America

I found this to be an interesting analysis. Maybe you will, also.

The president's agenda, arrogance and attitude have dulled that shiny, gold-plated image so many Americans bought. Now, his hubris and damn-the-voters posture are leading his party to a 2010 disaster.

President George W. Bush was a buoy for Republicans in 2002, the first midterm election of his presidency. Obama, on the other hand, is like an anvil. How did things go so wrong?

His predicament is partly the result of bad luck. Obama did not create the bad economy, even if it helped him get elected. He did not cause the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, even if a majority of Americans now frown upon his response to it. Both circumstances are now exacerbating his current problems, but neither can explain the relatively sudden crackup that polls suggest happened between late 2009 and early 2010.

The simplest explanation for Obama's demise is ObamaCare, but it's still not enough just to point to the law itself. Think of the health care debate as the small chip in your windshield, which, though small, compromises its integrity. When your car hits the next big bump, the chip becomes a crack, which then grows and spreads with every little jolt. In similar fashion, Obama's ruthless push for health care reform—and his failure to heed the public's negative reaction—created the first cracks in Obama's administration. They have since widened and multiplied with each new disaster, gaffe and piece of bad economic news.

Obama laid the groundwork for failure much earlier, during his 2008 election campaign. As a candidate, he promised Hope, Change and as few specifics as reasonably possible. This was the political path of least resistance, and President George W. Bush's unpopularity virtually guaranteed its success. The mainstream media, enrapt by the candidate's tingle-inspiring rhetoric and transformative post-partisanship, did as little as possible to reveal Obama's true policy intentions and left-leaning ideological origins.

This played to Obama's strong suit. David Mendell of the Chicago Tribune wrote in his 2007 biography, "Obama: From Promise to Power," of the senator’s "ingenious lack of specificity. … While talking or writing about a deeply controversial subject, he considers all points of view before cautiously giving his own often risk-averse assessment, an opinion that often appears so universal that people of various viewpoints would consider it their own."

This formula, along with incredible good luck, had been key to Obama’s effortless political rise as a legislator. But when it brought him to executive power, the effect was slightly different. Because he never had to sell his least popular policy reforms, Obama won office without the broad mandate he needed to govern as he wanted. This is the best available explanation for why Americans reacted so negatively to his agenda as soon as it materialized in Congress. They suddenly felt surprised, even deceived, after all the talk of post-partisanship.
