Will YOU Save Freedom? Catch The Tea Party Wave

 

  

By popular demand, we created this forum to cover almost any topic your heart desires.  The Forum name, "Open Mike" refers to the tradition that some comedy and music clubs have of offering all comers the opportunity to perform live impromptu at their establishments, with any material they come up with that is consistent with the theme and policies of that organization (in our case, the Mission statement in "Read Me" section), We'll even consider stuff not consistent, if you can persuade us that changes are needed.

Well...wish I had joined this site earlier so I could have put my 2 cents worth in. First of all, can you cite for me where in Article 1, Section 8, that it says Congress has the authority to audit the Federal Reserve, since in 1789 the Federal Reserve didn't exist. (1913) I agree with you about Congress not having the authority to establish the Federal Reserve, nor for legal tender laws...ie...Federal Reserve notes as legal tender. Only Congress has the authority to coin money and regulate its value, and only gold or silver can be legal tender. I won't even go into several famous quotes by the likes of Thomas Jefferson and other patriots about their dislike for central bankers, and how they are more dangerous to our liberty than standing armies.
Regarding earmarks. Earmarks are such a non-issue! 400 million out of a 3 TRILLION dollar budget? First of all, it is an issue brought up by sleazy politicians to distract from more important issues. Earmarks do NOT add a dime to the Federal budget! They simply "earmark" a portion of it for a specific spending item. ALL of the Federal budget (this years is 3.5 Trillion!) should be earmarked! That way it can't become a unaccounted slush fund. Since the $$$ for the Federal budget is stolen from the citizens of the several states, a Representative would be derelict in his/her duties if they didn't try to earmark some of it to come back to the people it was stolen from!
Lastly, in my humble opinion, Ron Paul is one of the most honest men in Washington DC, and most assuredly knows more about the constitution, economics, sound money, and wants to get rid of the Income Tax and replace it with...NOTHING! He most definitely knows more about the constitution than Lois Capps, whom I doubt even knows how to spell it!
I LOVE this!!! Someone should make a song out of it!
Hey Nicole! Perhaps you could make a campaign commercial out of David's post...Divorce agreement?
Love this too!
Comedian Steven Wright tells a joke about getting pulled over for speeding. The police officer approaches his vehicle and says, "Don't you know the speed limit is 65 mph?" To which Steven replies, "Yeah, but I wasn't planning on being out that long!"
Well, Justice Stevens is retiring, which means Barack Obama will get to nominate his replacement. We're gonna hear all sots of bloviating from everywhere claiming we need to balance the court with a: liberal, conservative, female/male, black, white, Latino, Asian, Indian, gay, heterosexual, whatever...pick one. But the law is the law. It has to be clear, concise, understandable to the most simple minded, otherwise it is ambiguous, and worthless. How can anyone obey the law if two different people can interpret it differently? Take my joke above. If I were to get pulled over for speeding on my way to LAX, which is about 65 miles from my house, and coincidentally the speed limit, and I'm going 80 mph. The cop will tell me I was going 15 mph over the speed limit. But I tell him, well, I left my house at 11:00 am, and it's now 12:30 pm and I'm not at the 10 freeway yet, due to traffic. According to my (liberal) interpretation of the speed limit law, I should have been at LAX a half hour ago. I should be able to go 65 miles in an hour!
Nicole and Brian,
If you guys can come up with the commercial I should probably be able to get it made somehow, I have lots of tools.
Excellent thinking, next time I get stopped I will use the same explanation, and then again to the judge who will probably let me off because he is in the judiciary where everything is interpreted.
Ca. Democratic Chairman says Oblahblah voters Motivated by Pot. Here's a link to the article and video. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/other-races/92853-video-califor... Definitely got a laugh out of this one! Mark
Speaking of pot, I think ole San Fran Nan has been hitting the peace pipe too. I like her quote on Babs Boxer. "Boxer is a champion for creating jobs, protecting our environment, and educating our children, someone whom is our top priority to re-elect this year". Hey Nance can you get me an OZ of that stuff? Mark http://thehill.com/homenews/house/92857-pelosi-two-pillars-down-one...
Low cost coverage in Obama healthcare plan not for all. "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it" Nancey Pelosi. Yep this bill just keeps on giving or taking or denying or taxing? http://apnews.myway.com/article/20100416/D9F43UK80.html
This article will make you ponder Obama's history or lack their of it. http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/04/barack_obamas_missing_girlfr... Then breezing through the comments someone referred this link. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rl... Enjoy Mark
Very interesting article, especially the Ayers/Homer links...hmmm...

On Wednesday the House Oversight Committee, chaired by outgoing Congressman Jason Chaffetz, will hold a hearing re-examining Operation Fast and Furious and the Obama administration's handling of the scandal. The goals of the hearing are to "identify what the new officials at the Department of Justice can learn from the mistakes made by their predecessors in responding to Congress's inquiry" and "to understand the effect of the Justice Department's obstruction on these witnesses."…See More

“consequently, that the ultimate right of the parties to the Constitution (i.e. the States), to judge whether the compact has been dangerously violated, must extend to violations by one delegated authority as well as by another--by the judiciary as well as by the executive, or the legislature.” Virginia Assembly Report 1800, James Madison.

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison 

"When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred." - Niccolo Machiavelli

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family. It needs to talk about the ghettos of Obamerica and have a serious conversation about broken families and generational dependency. It needs to have a conversation about funneling new immigrants from broken parts of the world into areas already suffering from high levels of unemployment and street violence.- Daniel Greenfield

Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." -- Thomas Jefferson

“Disarmament of the populace is always the first step to depriving them of their civil rights and human rights…many African-Americans and women are actively assaulting the very document that first secured their own freedom... if you do not believe in the Bill of Rights, then you are not, at heart, an American.” – Mike Adams

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

So now that there is a new tragedy the president wants to have a “national conversation on guns”. Here’s the thing. Until this national conversation is willing to entertain allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons, then it isn’t a conversation at all, it is a lecture. – Larry Correia'

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year? A yearly cost of 4 FR notes where it only cost the FR 2 cents to print.

This is the biggest Conspiracy you may ever encounter and this started sometime around 1913. Yes, your parents and their parents had so much of their time stolen from them at a cost of 2 pennies. And the National Debt is one big fraud. And this is not just in the United States but the whole world.- Steven Pattison

"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen”- Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
- President American Bankers Association, 1924

 ‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’—Chris Kyle, former SEAL sniper

Rep. Randy Neugebauer put the burden into perspective: “It will take over 24 million man hours to comply with Dodd-Frank rules per year. It took only 20 million to build the Panama Canal.”

"Sixty-one percent of debt issued by the Treasury is bought by the Federal Reserve -- which is to say the left hand of the U.S. Government is lending money to the right hand of the US Government. ... Nonetheless, in a land where every mewling babe in the American nursery is born with a debt burden of just under $200,000, the president brags that only his party is 'compassionate' to have no plan whatsoever even to attempt to do anything about this, no way, no how, not now, not ever." --columnist Mark Steyn

Isn't it amazing how every facet of Sergeant Bales life,  high school, college, employment, why he left his employment, his brother’s employment, his wife’s employment, real estate holdings, a missed house payment , a missed promotion etc., is exposed within a week and the same fact finders can't find comparable info on the most powerful man in the world in three plus years ?
