RIP Davy Jones

News traveled fast via Twitter today that Davy Jones from the Monkees passed away from a heart attack.  How very sad.

RIP Davy Jones 12/30/45 - 02/29/12

Here is a video from earlier this month doing what he did best ... singing and making everyone around him smile.

And my favorite song "I'm A Believer."  If only the music of today was so cheerful without curse words and lewd video.  Yes, get off my lawn.  :)

May Davy Jones rest in peace and prayers for his family, his friends and his fans.

America Needs Ted Cruz

I've proudly been a member of "Bloggers for Cruz" supporting Ted Cruz's campaign for U.S. Senate since last summer. I've seen him at countless events throughout Texas and our great nation. Tea Party events, Republican Women's Club meetings, the Texas Straw Poll, Empower Texan's Senate debate, and CPAC last year and again this year. Ted repeatedly proves his dedication to meet with us, listen to us and talk with us about the importance of what our next Senator from Texas should do to put our country back on track to prosperity.

Earlier this week, the North Texas Tea Party released their February poll numbers from their membership regarding the US Senate Race and Ted led the dominated the candidates, winning with 57.5% of the vote. Wow. Just wow. The final results were as follows:
  • Glenn Addison 2.2%
  • Andrew Castanuela 0.0%
  • Curt Cleaver 0.0%
  • Ted Cruz 57.5%
  • David Dewhurst 6.0%
  • Tom Leppert 7.5%
  • Lela Pittenger 4.5%
  • Undecided 18.9%
  • Other 2.2%
  • Total 100%
Read more about this poll here.

And on Tuesday, the poll out by the Texas Tribune/UT further shows a Cruz surge continues and that he is headed to a runoff with Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. This new, independent, statewide poll shows that Dewhurst is at 38%, Cruz at 27% and the next two candidates are 20 points behind at 7%. This means the race is headed for a runoff between Cruz and Dewhurst. UT pollster Jim Henson summarizes the situation: “Cruz is in the advantageous position right now of, for the most part, defending his ideas against Dewhurst's record. In the last few cycles, that's been a good place to be, and not to be the person who's having to defend your actions in government.”

Yes! The campaign is surging and Ted's message of returning our country to the limited government principles our Founding Fathers is resonating amongst Texas voters. But a Super PAC will soon be launching in Texas that will attack all others so we need to keep the Cruz Crew momentum alive! Listen to Ted as he speaks with Steve Bannon about the U.S. Senate battleground.

By electing Ted Cruz as Texas' next U.S. Senator, we will return to limited government principles, defend free market principles and restore and follow the Constitution.  Ted will fight for us! I want Ted Cruz to be my Senator.  Not simply for the awesomeness that is Texas, but for the greatness that is America. America needs Ted Cruz.

Join me in supporting and standing with Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate.

Remarkable Obama

Yesterday I read an article that Poet Maya Angelou believes that "Barack Obama has done a remarkable job." Angelou goes further in the article to say that President Obama deserves to be re-elected.  Deserves?  No.

What can President Obama's remarkable record proclaim?

A real unemployment rate of 15% is remarkable.
Record number of families on food stamps is remarkable.
Instructing parents what their children can eat at school is remarkable.
Placing Hispanics in a box wrapped in a chimichanga is remarkable.
Promoting class and race warfare is remarkable.
Ordering Americans to purchase healthcare is remarkable.
Spending money we don't have over saving for our future is remarkable.
Supporting law breakers at Occupy protests is remarkable.
Giving my children, ages 20, 19 and 13 a citizen debt of $49,316.93 is remarkable. (Same for me, my husband and YOU too)
Calling any American an extremist who disagrees with his policies is remarkable.
Waging war on women's health and religious freedom is remarkable.
Not promoting the greatness of America is remarkable.
Promising to do more for Israel and not following through is remarkable.
Promising in 2008 to cut the deficit in half and instead doubling down on spending is remarkable.
Sitting quietly by as Senate Democrats don't pass a budget in over 1,000 days is remarkable.
Stating the jobs bill was paid for when it was NOT is remarkable.
Stating the United States produces more oil than ever before when we do NOT is remarkable.
Proclaiming the rich do not pay their fair share when they do is remarkable.
His "no boots on the ground" in Libya lie is remarkable.
"HCR is not increasing the deficit by one dime" LIE is remarkable.
"The Texas border is safer today that ever before" lie is remarkable.
"I'll get rid of earmarks" is yet another remarkable lie.
The most transparent administration in history is a remarkable lie.
Bills will be posted to read for three (3) days is a remarkable lie.
"The American Recovery Act will create/save more jobs" is another remarkable lie.

Yes, I could go on with more remarkable lies and promises broken by the Obama administration, but I will end my remarkable rant there. Well ... except to admit that President Obama did make one statement that holds true.

 "We are going to fundamentally change America." 

These were the words then Presidential candidate Barack Obama said on the campaign trail in 2008.  Now, after 3 years of so many failed promises, failed policies and failed hope for Americans wanting a better future, it is these seven words yelled with confidence by Obama that have held true.

Food prices have sky rocked along with gas prices and all things that have a price tag on them.  Where is the media outrage at our rising costs towards the Obama administration as they did with the Bush administration?  Crickets.

More Americans are without work and 36.3% of working-age Americans do not have a job and aren't even looking.  And then the Obama For America campaign charges $35,800 a plate at fundraising dinners.

Is this what you voted for?

From Political Editor Guy Benson comes the Political Quote Of The Year from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner this week, speaking on behalf of President Obama and his administration, to Rep. Paul Ryan:

You are right to say we're not coming before you today to say "we have a definite solution to that long term problem.  What we do know is we don't like yours."
Geithner admits to the Obama Administrations incompetence!  Wow.  Just wow.

No solutions.  No leadership.

It's time for change, my friends.  Vote. Him. Out.  Vote them ALL out who continue to support the progressive agenda of putting us further in debt. I hope you will join me.

Remember in November!

Don't leave it to someone else.  You ARE someone else!

Kabuki theater, indeed.

The Racism of Daily Kos for GOP Candidate Mia B. Love

I was recently informed about a piece by Daily Kos promoting racism versus Republican candidate Mia B. Love.  I've had the pleasure of meeting Mia in person at CPAC and welcome her campaign to bring conservative values to Utah's newly formed 4th Congressional District.  Read more about her campaign at Love 4 Utah now.

Me with the awesome Mia B. Love at BlogBash at CPAC 2012.

The Kos piece, written in January 2012, is mentioned in this eye opening piece from  54°40′ Or Fight!  

How is it acceptable in our "post-racial" world that Daily Kos promotes and accepts racism? They're so often featured on MSNBC and other mainstream media outlets as respected and prominent in providing insight into the "state of the union." Well, Daily Kos does promote racism by stating Mia B. Love is "one of only two African-Americans living in Utah not currently playing for the Jazz."

WOW.  Just wow.

This is unacceptable and I will not stand for it.

The jig is up, Daily Kos.  We've known it all along, but here it is in print.  Maybe you should change your name to Racist Kos because that is what you are by allowing and promoting this type of vile rhetoric.

Here is a screen shot of the post in case Daily Kos tries to cut and run as cowards.  Or maybe they'll say "he's not with us" like the Occupy DC protester who hit a police officer in the head with a brick this past weekend.  Yeah, right.

Screen Print from 2-13-2012 of Racist Kos' piece versus Mia B. Love

Please stand with me in voicing your concerns that this racism is unacceptable.  Leave comments, send emails, make phone calls and stand strong against this evil.

If you're on twitter, please follow @MiaBLove to find out the latest on her campaign.

Also, join me in supporting the 48 Hour Campaign Moneybomb - Love For Love!

If you're not on twitter or facebook, you may go directly to this link to support Mia B. Love with a personal donation.

Thank you for your support of Mia, her campaign and for joining me in fighting like a girl!

God Bless!

CPAC 2012: We STILL Hold These Truths

This year is my second year attending CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, DC.  As an official blogger, I'll be able to report and share with all of you what thousands of grassroots conservatives are witnessing during the conference.  Three days of amazing speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities galore!  I look forward to doing my little part to help make our country a better place for everyone by standing by the principles of limited government, personal responsibility and freedom of religion, to name a few.  

CPAC has been around for 39 years now and this year we'll have Presidential candidates, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum speaking at the event.  Also scheduled to speak are my awesome Governor, Rick Perry, Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Senator Rand Paul and the woman who opened my eyes, Sarah Palin.  I can't wait to hear them all speak and look forward to sharing with you too.

I especially like this year's theme "We STILL Hold These Truths."  Man, this is spot on!

And no worries about the unions and Occupy DC who plan on "making it count" by disrupting, physically and verbally assaulting the peaceful participants of CPAC.  I plan on being safe and ignoring any confrontation that may come my way.  The police and other security will be there to protect us.  I just find it sad that my President, the White House administration, and Democratic party leaders support their cause.  Very sad indeed.  I thought the government was there to protect its citizens, but in this case, its only the citizens who support their agenda.

So pay attention my friends.  Our children deserve a country free of violence and oppression.  They don't deserve being in debt (as of today) of close to $50,000 per citizen.  Nor do they deserve to be ridiculed for their religion or choices they make in their lives.  What they do deserve is a strong country with a strong faith, a strong bank account, a strong military and a strong belief that we are and always will be the greatest nation on the planet.

I will do what I can do make this happen by continuing my quest to be a Community Organizer for the Constitution.  Even if it's from my little blog.  Join me!  

Don't leave it to someone else.  You ARE someone else!

Happy 101st Birthday, President Ronald Reagan!

The first time I voted, it was for Ronald Reagan.

My friend Karen Townsend wrote a fantastic piece today on Reagan and where we are today in the GOP.  Please read it here:  Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan.  I agree with her that we need to go back to the Reagan way.

I greatly miss his positive message.  He truly believed in the good of America.

I wish we had that in our leadership today.  Will we again?
