If you support and practice our fiscal issues, you may value worldly possessions.

If you support and value our social issues, you may love Judeo-Christian values.

Promoting "God's Holy Values and American Freedoms"!

“My Comments”

Can someone please retain “Al Gory” to explain the frigid air that is freezing much of America’s homeland? The cold climate today is absolutely opposite as to what he is telling the world about his global climate warming? On second thought, most have figured out that Al Gory’s acquaintance, as to his real knowledge, is merely junk science. - oyh

"Daily Motivations"

One critical piece of advice I received and have used throughout my career came from the best teacher I have ever had, my dad. He would remind me that delaying or not making a decision was in fact making the decision not to decide. -- Jim Ligotti, VP, Maritime Solutions at Ingersoll-Rand

"First we make our habits, then our habits make us." -- Charles C. Noble

"The true measure of an individual is how he treats a person who can do him absolutely no good." -- Ann Landers

"Daily Devotions" (KJV and/or NLT)

Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. (Matthew 7:7)

Imagine for a moment that a distant relative has included you in his will. As part of the execution of that will, money is placed into a bank account for you, and you are notified of that fact. But you reason, "It can't be true!" So you never bother to write a check against that account. Although you have the inheritance, you do not benefit from it because you lack the faith and willingness to claim it. How tragic!

As children of God, we must be aware of our spiritual inheritance and claim it by faith. Then we will experience the abundant spiritual riches God has for His children. This inheritance is both present and future.

I am told of a wealthy person who divided his inheritance into two parts for his children. He is giving them some of their inheritance now. For example, he helped his son start a business, and he helped his daughter purchase a condominium. They will receive additional money from time to time as they demonstrate that they can handle it well. But the bulk of their estate will come later.

In the same way, increasing spiritual maturity and faith release increasing measures of our spiritual riches. The riches begin the moment we become Christians, but the full riches of our relationship with God will be revealed in heaven.

Your View of God Really Matters …

God has devised the "faith method" for receiving His promises because it requires unwavering trust in Him. What one thing will you chose to trust Him for today?

"The Patriot Post"

"O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if, to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people! Your arms, wherewith you could defend yourselves, are gone; and you have no longer an aristocratical, no longer a democratical spirit. Did you ever read of any revolution in a nation, brought about by the punishment of those in power, inflicted by those who had no power at all?" -- Patrick Henry, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1778

"In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn." -- Luke 2:1-7

"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them." -- Zacharia Johnson, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

On Marigolds

By Everett Dirksen


Mr. President: On January 8, 1965, I introduced S.J. Res. 19, to designate the American Marigold (Tagetes erecta) as the national floral emblem of the United States. Today I am introducing the same resolution with the suggestion that it again be referred to the committee on Judiciary.

The American flag is not a mere assembly of colors, stripes and stars but it in fact symbolizes our origin, development and growth.

The American eagle, king of the skies is so truly representing of our might and power.

A national floral emblem should represent the virtues of our land and be national in character.

The marigold is a native of North America and can in truth and in fact be called an American flower.

It is national in character for it grows and thrives in every one of the 50 states of this nation. It conquers the extremes of temperature. It well withstands the summer sun and the evening chill.

Its robustness reflects the hardihood and character of the generations who pioneered and built this land into a great nation. It is not temperamental about fertility. It resists its natural enemies- the insects. It is self reliant and requires little attention. Its spectacular colors- lemon and orange, rich brown and deep mahogany- befit the imaginative qualities of this nation.

It is as sprightly as the daffodil, as colorful as the rose, as resolute as the zinnia, as delicate as the carnation, as haughty as the chrysanthemum, as aggressive as the petunia, as ubiquitous as the violet as stately as the snapdragon.

It beguiles the senses and ennobles the spirit of man. It is the delight of the amateur gardener and a constant challenge to the professional.
Since it is native to America and nowhere else in the world and common to every state in the Union, I present the American marigold for designation as the national floral emblem of our country.

How to fix Congress

Posted by Alison Felschow



I am sending this to virtually everybody on my e-mail list and that includes conservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. Even though we disagree on a number of issues, I count all of you as friends. My friend wants to promote a "Congressional Reform Act of 2009". It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights..

I know many of you will say, "this is impossible". Let me remind you, Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, now is the time when Americans will join together to reform Congress - the entity that represents us.

We need to get a Senator to introduce this bill in the US Senate and a Representative to introduce a similar bill in the US House. These people will become American hero's..


A Fellow American


Congressional Reform Act of 2010

1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.

A. Two Six year Senate terms
B. Six Two year House terms
C. One Six year Senate term and three Two Year House terms

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

2. No Tenure / No Pension:

A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, server your term(s), then go home and back to work.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

7. Congress must equally abide in all laws they impose on the American people.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

Top ten GOP presidential hopefuls for 2012 (ANALYSIS)

Des Moines Conservative Examiner

Palin draws huge crowds in Iowa

AP Photo/Jim Lee

The presidential campaign never really stops, especially here in Iowa. The Ames Straw Poll is only 20 months away, and the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucus looms in just over two years. Candidates are already lining up donors and political action committees in hopes of securing the 2012 Republican nomination. At least six potential candidates already visited Iowa in the past six months. Next year, we will see many more GOP hopefuls putting the Hawkeye State on their travel itinerary.

A victory in Iowa could boost the winner to the GOP nomination. So, as 2009 draws to a close, here is a look ahead at the top ten Republican hopefuls for 2012:

1. Sarah Palin

Strengths: She is immensely popular with a large portion of the GOP base. Palin possesses huge star power and that "it factor" that connects with average Americans. The more the lefties trash her, the more conservatives want to defend her. Palin's book, "Going Rogue" is an enormous success. She has effectively used social media, especially Facebook, to put forth her conservative viewpoints on a range of topics. Palin's infamous "death panels" slam of ObamaCare put a serious dent into the president's top domestic agenda.

Weaknesses: She resigned as governor of Alaska before completing her first term and failed to give a good explanation. That opens her to numerous attacks. Palin still needs to spend significant time studying policy matters, especially foreign relations. Convincing Newt Gingrich or Charles Krauthammer to mentor her would be a very wise decision. A large portion of the electorate still considers her unqualified. The "Saturday Night Live" caricature of Palin is how many view the real Palin.

2. Mike Huckabee:

Strengths: Engaging personality that won over Iowa voters and boosted him to victory in the 2008 Iowa Caucus. A large portion of social conservatives still support Huckabee. Has a national platform thanks to his radio spots and Fox News Channel program. As a staunch opponent of gay marriage, he has a viable platform to rail against it in Iowa, thanks to a court decision making it legal here.

Weaknesses: The Maurice Clemmons clemency, along with that of 1,102 other Arkansas criminals. Despite Huckabee's reasoning, he will forever be linked to Clemmons' murder of four Washington police officers. That makes his judgment questionable and an easy target for opponents. If Palin runs, she could cut deeply in Huckabee's social conservative base. Many consider Huckabee a RINO on issues other than abortion and same-sex marriage. Seems to enjoy being a TV star. Has indicated he is "less than likely" to run if his Fox show continues to do well.

3. Mitt Romney

Strengths: Financial knowledge. A Harvard MBA and longtime venture capitalist, Romney is the most qualified candidate to turn around a struggling economy. He saved the 2002 Winter Olympics from financial disaster. Already has a base of support and contacts from his 2008 campaign.

Weaknesses: ObamaCare. Romney signed a similar, state-run health insurance program into law when he was governor of Massachusetts. The federal plan is unpopular with the majority of Americans, especially Republicans. Romney's Massachusetts plan included $50 co-pays for abortion. He used to support both abortion and gay marriage. Portrays himself as socially conservative now, but many consider him a flip-flopper. His support has decreased significantly in the past year.

4. Tim Pawlenty

Strengths: As Minnesota governor, he balanced a huge budget deficit without raising taxes. Likable personality that won good reviews for his speech at an Iowa GOP fundraiser in November. Has already begun assembling a campaign team and fundraising in preparation for a run at the nomination.

Weaknesses: Used to be an ardent "cap and trade" advocate and signed several nanny-state, environmental regulations into law. Backed away from some of those stances, but his record exists. Big spender, according to the CATO Institute.

5. John Thune

Strengths: Considered a dark horse candidate right now, but could provide the new blood the GOP desperately needs. Defeated then-Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle for South Dakota seat in 2004. No one had accomplished a similar feat since 1952. Evangelical, who earns strong ratings on social conservative issues, gun rights, immigration enforcement and other typical conservative stances. Young, rising star in GOP.

Weaknesses: His plain, Midwestern tone will connect voters, but will not electrify them. Does not have a magnetic personality, nor a high national profile.

6. Newt Gingrich

Strengths: Still considered the top "idea man" in the Republican Party. Can speak eloquently, yet plainly, on any issue and school any opponent in a debate.

Weaknesses: His support for liberal Dede Scozzafava in the NY-23 congressional race earned the scorn of conservatives nationwide. Personal history of affairs and divorces will turn off some social conservatives. Had a much greater chance of winning the nomination if he ran in 2008.

7. Haley Barbour

Strengths: As current chairman of the Republican Governor's Association, helped lead his party to victory in Virginia and New Jersey last month. The current governor of Mississippi is a tremendous fundraiser and former RNC chairman. Well-connected to the GOP establishment.

Weaknesses: Perhaps too well-connected to the GOP establishment, especially considering the rise of the Tea Party movement. Told Iowa Republicans to resist "purity" and make room for pro-choice Republicans. That turned off many Iowa social conservatives. Thick, southern drawl and Mississippi roots make him too easy a target for Democrats to paint with the "Republicans are Racist" brush.

8. Jim DeMint:

Strengths: South Carolina senator has significantly raised his national profile during the fight against ObamaCare. Strong conservative credentials.

Weaknesses: The same Southerner stigma as Barbour. Might be considered too right wing by moderates and independents.

9. Liz Cheney

Strengths: Dick Cheney's daughter has become one of the GOP's strongest voices on foreign policy. She jokingly suggested her famous father might run, but that is highly unlikely. Liz, meanwhile, told the Washington Times in June that she might consider running for office. Smart, articulate and has plenty of political experience behind-the-scenes.

Weaknesses: She's Dick Cheney's daughter. Has never held or run for elected office.

10. Ron/Rand Paul

Strengths: Ron might be too old to run in 2012, but his son Rand, who holds the same views and is running for senator in Kentucky, could take his spot. Very loyal supporters.

Weaknesses: Views are too far out of the mainstream of most Republican voters. Vocal supporters go too far at times and make Paul look worse. Has no chance to win GOP nomination, but could do some damage as an independent.

Cook: Dems Could Lose The House

By Ed Carson


Veteran political analyst Charlie Cook says retirements are creating a “vicious circle” for Democratic politicians. For the first time, he sees a significant risk that Democrats could lose the House this year if trends continue. (Somebody alert RNC Chairman Michael Steele).

From Cook:

How many other wavering House -- or Senate -- Democrats will look at the past five weeks and decide that spending the rest of this year as a lame duck is more attractive than spending a horrific year fundraising, scarfing down fast food, and shaking hands -- all the while facing the very real possibility of losing in the end? When their party starts singing endless choruses of “This is going to be a lousy year,” lawmakers can easily find themselves humming along.

Come November, Senate Democrats’ 60-vote supermajority is toast. It is difficult, if not impossible, to see how Democrats could lose the Senate this year. But they have a 50-50 chance of ending up with fewer than 55 seats in the next Congress.

As for the House, we at The Cook Political Report are still forecasting that Democrats will lose only 20 to 30 seats. Another half-dozen or more retirements in tough districts, however, perhaps combined with another party switch or two, would reduce Democrats’ chances of holding the House to only an even-money bet. We rate 217 seats either “Solid Democratic” or “Likely Democratic,” meaning that the GOP would have to win every single race now thought to be competitive to reach 218, the barest possible majority. But if Democrats suffer much more erosion in their “Solid” and “Likely” columns, control of the House will suddenly be up for grabs.

The Jan. 19 special election for the Massachusetts Senate seat could be key. A GOP upset — or even a close loss by Scott Brown — could likely trigger a new wave of Democratic retirements. Likewise, a smashing victory by Martha Coakley might slow the bleeding.

Final Rule Removing HIV Infection from U.S. Immigration Screening

It appears President Obama and his radical left-wing administration are determined to force “straight” American society to accept, and like the homosexual and lesbian life style in every community, whether you like it or not.

Additionally, President Obama is forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare cost of the unethical morality which comes along with homosexuality and lesbian activity. How much more can the taxpayers pay for? - oyh


General Questions and Answers

Immigrants and refugees must undergo a medical exam as part of the immigration process for entry into the United States. The exam includes screening for any illness defined as a communicable disease of public health significance. All of these diseases can be easily spread between people. Those immigrants and refugees found to have these diseases may not enter the United States.

The screening process, along with this list of diseases which can prevent entry into the United States, are outlined in federal regulations written by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If new diseases emerge or as more is learned about diseases already on this list, regulatory changes can be made to alter the disease list.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and CDC are removing HIV infection from the list of diseases that keep non-U.S. citizens from entering the United States. General information about the change is provided below:

What was the process for removing HIV from the list and when will the change take effect?

HHS published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on July 2, 2009 explaining the proposed changes in the Federal Register and seeking public comment on those changes. The proposed rule was based on the science that HIV is not spread through casual contact. A public comment period was open until August 17, 2009. These public comments were considered in making the final policy decision. After the comment period closed, CDC carefully reviewed over 20,000 public comments. Most comments supported the rule as proposed.

The final rule was published on November 2, 2009 in the Federal Register. After the 60-day waiting period required by federal guidelines, the final rule will go into effect on January 4, 2010.

Before the effective date of January 4, 2010, what changes will take place for non-U.S. citizens with HIV infection who wish to enter the United States?
Until the final rule is in effect on January 4, 2010, non-U.S. citizens who have HIV cannot come to the United States unless granted a waiver by the Department of Homeland Security. Also, all those applying for an immigrant visa will have to be tested for HIV infection during the immigrant medical exam until January 4, 2010.

Under the new rule, effective on January 4, 2010, HIV testing will no longer be required as part of the immigrant medical exam. In addition, waivers will no longer be needed for HIV infection.

What diseases prevent non-U.S. citizens from coming to the United States?
Diseases that can prevent entry to the U.S. fall into three categories:

Any of the following diseases: active tuberculosis, infectious syphilis, gonorrhea, infectious leprosy, chancroid, lymphogranuloma venereum, granuloma inguinale, and HIV infection. (HIV infection will be removed on January 4, 2010)
Quarantinable diseases designated by any Presidential Executive Order. The current list of diseases includes cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and influenza caused by novel or re-emergent influenza (pandemic flu).
Diseases reportable as a public health emergency of international concern to the World Health Organization under the International Health Regulations of 2005. These diseases currently include: polio, smallpox, SARS, pandemic flu and other public health emergencies of international concern.
HIV infection will be removed as a communicable disease of public health significance effective January 4, 2010. At that time, HIV infection will not be used to keep people from entering the United States.

Who is affected by the rule change?

Those who are not U.S. citizens will no longer be denied entry to the United States based on their HIV status. This would include: immigrants (including those in the United States applying for change of status to lawful permanent resident), refugees, and those seeking asylum. This also includes temporary visitors for school, work or pleasure.

Why did CDC remove HIV infection from the list of diseases that can prevent non-U.S. citizens from entering the United States?

When the regulation preventing non-U.S. citizens from entering the country was created in 1987, far less was known about how HIV infection is spread and what puts people at risk for HIV. Health experts now know that HIV is not spread through casual contact like hugging or shaking hands. Nor is HIV spread through the air, food or water. In the United States, HIV infection is passed between adults almost solely through unprotected sex with someone who has HIV or by sharing needles or syringes used by someone with HIV. Removing HIV infection from the list of illnesses that prevent entry to the United States is based on this improved knowledge of the risk of spreading the disease.

Will the rule change increase the risk that average Americans will contract HIV?

Allowing non-U.S. citizens with HIV infection into the United States will not pose a risk to the public’s health through casual contact. HIV infection is preventable and is not spread through casual contact or day-to-day activities. It is mainly spread through behaviors which involve the exchange of bodily fluids during sex or sharing of needles.

HIV is not a new virus in the United States. Currently, it’s estimated that more than 1 million Americans are living with HIV. It is important to remember that any risk posed by people with HIV is not a result of their nationality. The risk of spreading HIV is only increased when a person engages in specific behaviors, such as having unprotected sex or sharing needles.

Why are HHS and CDC removing only HIV infection when other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are still on the list of diseases that prevent entry?

Legislation passed in July 2008 removed language from the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) related to HIV. This original text had mandated that HIV infection be on the list of diseases that can keep people from coming to the United States. The decision to remove HIV infection from the regulations is because of this change in law and the science of how HIV is spread. In the United States, HIV infection is passed between adults almost solely through unprotected sex with someone who has HIV or by sharing needles or syringes used by someone with HIV. HIV is not spread through casual contact.

CDC continues to review the list of diseases in the regulations. If CDC seeks to remove other STDs in the future, it will do so through the federal rulemaking process.

Why does the law require 60 days before the final rule can go into effect?

The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requires a 60-day waiting period for any rule that has a major economic impact. An economic analysis has shown that this rule will have a major national economic impact. Thus, this rule meets the OMB guidelines for the 60-day waiting period.

The 60-day waiting period will begin on November 2, 2009. Thus, the final rule will go into effect on January 4, 2010.

Where can I find out more about the new rule?

"The e-mail Bag"

Corporal Jones was assigned to the induction center .... where he advised new recruits about their government benefits, especially their GI insurance. It wasn't long before Captain Smith noticed that Corporal Jones was having a staggeringly high success-rate, selling insurance to nearly 100% of the recruits he advised. Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones' sales pitch.

Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and then said: "If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $250,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don't have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government only has to pay a maximum of $6,000.

Now," he concluded, "which group do you think they are going to send into battle first?"
