Be more like China Elizabeth?

On the heels of my viral web video “Let America Be America Again,” Elizabeth Warren has introduced a new TV ad with a very different message – Make America More Like China.

You heard that right.  Warren, the “intellectual founder” of the Occupy protest movement and the inspiration for the “you didn’t build that” philosophy, is holding up China, with its repressive government policies, as the model for American progress.

Adding insult, Warren decided to introduce her new China ad during the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics when patriotic Americans will be competing against the Chinese and other nations around the world.

This is why people are calling the Massachusetts Senate race “ground zero” in the battle to defend free enterprise.

The whole point of Warren’s China comparison is that she wants a new $1 trillion stimulus program.  We’ve tried a big stimulus already and it failed.  All it got us was more debt and fewer jobs.

Being more like China is no way to strengthen America.  What we need to do is Let America Be America Again.

Sincerely,
Scott_Brown

P.S. With so much at stake in this “ground zero” election, I hope you will chip in whatever you can afford to help me fight back against Warren’s misguided vision for America.  If you can do $10, $25 or even $50, that will send me a signal that you are with me in this battle.  Thank you.

 
 
 

Mayor Bloomberg knows better for your child than you could ever……

“Mayor Bloomberg is now playing the role of pediatrician and neo-natal specialist. While it is great to encourage breastfeeding, the reality is that some women may not want to breastfeed their baby and is simply their choice. The government should not force them to do it,” says Cherylyn Harley LeBon, a mother of two and a member of Proj. 21’s National Advisory Board, contact Judy Kent.. To discuss this further with Cherylyn, contact Judy Kent at the below number.

 
 
 

The Scarecrow comes out!

 
 
 

You didn’t build that… someone else did!!

I found Barack Husane Obama’s comments very offensive when he said, “You did not build your business,  the government did.”

All I can say is where the hell was the government when I was working my butt off 14 hours a day, seven days a week. I could not afford to take a vacation or time off when sick.

How much of an investment did the government put into the business – nada (not one cent)! They just take.

While entrepreneurs are working their buns off to have the American dream, Obama was too busy smoking weed and dreaming of Marxism. His only accomplishment in life was a community agitator.

When you have an idea and want to pursue that dream, the government does everything it can to hamper you. (The only ones government helps is Solyndra (green energy) or  big bundlers (money) for Obama.) You sell what you can to raise capital, re-mortgage your house (if you can) just to take big risks to live the American dream. Not Obama’s American dream of welfare, food stamps and disability.

To bring it into perspective, the other morning I went for a mile walk. I was attacked by horse flies. I’d kill one, another would appear. I associated the horse flies with government. They are there for the free money through government regulations, taxes, compliance (A.D.A., etc.) fees and burdensome permitting.

The government is not there to help. It’s there to take everything they can (by hook or crook). They are like scavengers.

Also the government does not build the roads or bridges, the working taxpayers do. In fact, most of the major roads were started by the Indians or the pioneers.

What we should be doing on the Fourth…

Disclaimer: The following article was dropped off at the station by one of our listeners. The newspaper in which the article appeared and by whom the article was written have been cut off so, unfortunately, I cannot give credit where credit is due. But do want to thank our listener for keeping us informed.

Come July 4th it’s thoughts of a long weekend – gas prices, the car’s GPS, picnics, which houseguests we can avoid, which hostesses we can invade, do ants prefer Hellmans or Miracle Whip. Shouldn’t thoughts maybe turn to the original Fourth of July?

It was 56 Founding Fathers from 13 colonies who signed The Declaration of Independence 231 years ago. Benjamin Franklin was the oldest – 70. Ed Rutledge, from North Carolina, was 26; the youngest. The president of our Second Continental Congress, the famous John Hancock of Massachusetts, who grew to have an insurance company named after him, was 39.Virginia’s Thomas Jefferson, 33. Most were late 30s, early 40s. Seven were sixty-ish. Three in their 20s.

Per the Plymouth Rock Foundation’s Rus Walton, they who Signed For Us were merchants, farmers, lawyers, physicians, one a bond servant, 10 pastors’ sons. Not one had a hedge fund, none was fromSilicon Valley. Roger Sherman ofConnecticut, who now has a nice little inn in his name inNew Canaan, was a shoemaker’s apprentice and learned reading via books propped on his bench.

Leader of the Sons of Liberty, delegate Samuel Adams – who has since become a world-class beer – arrived in Philly’s Pennsylvania State House, known as “Independence Hall,” dressed in new suit, stockings, wig, shoes, all donated by supporters.

After signing to pledge their lives and “Sacred Honor” to the cause of Independence, it was Presbyterian pastor Dr. John Witherspoon, founder of what today is Princeton, who added the final phrase that gave God a hand in this whole thing: “ … with firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.”

It was in The Proceedings of The Virginia Convention in The First Continental Congress in the town ofVirginiainSt. John’sChurchthat Deputy Patrick Henry said, “Give me liberty, or give me death.” Following that speech,America’s patriots voted onJuly 4, 1776, without dissent. John Hancock signed boldly so “John Bull can read my name without spectacles and may now double his reward of 500 pounds on my head.”

Voting “Aye” that “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be, free and Independent States,” they became marked men. King George III declared them rebels and traitors. The penalty for treason: hanging. Being deeply committed to principles bedrock to the Declaration and signing for this new country meant death.

And as we barbecue and snorkel and sip warm iced tea, how many of them can we name?

 

 

 

 

First signer to die, seven months later, John Morton ofPennsylvania.South Carolina’s Arthur Middleton and Thomas Heyward were captured during the siege of Charleston. British troops destroyedGeorgia’s Dr. Lyman Hall, killed another in a duel, captured another in the battle of Savannah.

All the property of four New Yorkers was destroyed. Wealthy importer Philip Livingston lost his townhouse inNew York City, his country place in BrooklynHeights, and died a pauper in 1778. Francis Lewis – now known mostly because of his boulevard inQueens– saw his wife brutalized, taken prisoner and die shortly thereafter. William Floyd ofLong Islandsuffered a scorched-earth policy and hid out for seven years. You should know that when you speed on his parkway.

New Jerseyites. John Hart, hunted through the woods like an animal. Abraham Clark, jailed on the enemy’s notorious prison shipJerseywhen it was reported, “New Yorkharbor is heavy with the stench of the dying.” Justice Richard Stockton, imprisoned, abused, starved, died of maltreatment. Brigadier Gen. Thomas Nelson, at the final battle ofYorktown, personally directed the cannon fire that destroyed his own home.

The instant these newfangled, newly named Americans declaredIndependence, a massive British force landed to seizeNew York CityonSept. 6, 1776. Then the overmatched George Washington retreated to northernManhattanwhere now stands the bridge that bears his name.

Sept. 20, the enemy burned one-quarter ofNew York City.

Sept. 22, Connecticut’s 21-year-old Capt. Nathan Hale, fresh from his Yale graduation, was the first American executed for spying. His last words: “I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.” A plaque at 66th and Third marked the site of Hale’s execution.

So, while you’re fuming at Montauk Highway’s traffic, buying Sunday-brunch goodies at H&H Bagel, watching fireworks along the East Riveror complaining bitterly about the broken screen door on your weekend place in upstate Bedford, remember what July 4th really means.

The spirit of our beloved nation has not dissipated. The goodness and glory of this land is not of yesterday – but of today and tomorrow. Let this be OUR declaration.

 

God BlessAmerica.

 
 
 

Tale of Two Doctors

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery. The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn’t reviewed for another week, and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then, pending the review boards’ decision on his age and remaining value to society.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on Obama care.
In November, if Obama and his Czars get another term, we’ll all have to find a good vet.
 
 
 

BarryHinckley: More Jobs, Less Politics. As Senator I’ll fight for real tax reform so our small businesses can grow

Listen to his Interview on Conservatively Speaking:

Hinckley Interview

Eight grandfathers ago, Barry Hinckley’s forebear, Col. James Barrett, commanded the regiment of Minutemen at Concord, credited with firing one of the first shots at the advancing British across the North Bridge. Col. Barrett’s family farm still stands today and has since become a local landmark. In honor of this American hero’s inimitable spirit, Barry is running for U.S. Senate in Rhode Island with the goal of restoring our great nation’s security and ensuring a prosperous future for our children. The status quo today spells disaster for this nation. Fortunately, changing the status quo is a Hinckley family tradition.

A lifelong New Englander from a family of boat builders, Barry understands the significance of the marine manufacturing industry and its place at the heart of Rhode Island’s economy. As a citizen, Barry has witnessed rampant government regulation drive jobs and revenue out of his State, weakening its core industry. Every Rhode Island family has endured the fallout from these harmful policies in some way, and have a poignant story to tell: from a father losing his job, to a sister who’s unable to make payroll at her small business, to the son trying desperately to find a job and put himself through college. Barry is committed to changing the narrative so Rhode Islanders can start telling positive stories about growth, economic independence and opportunity.

Barry has 20 years of entrepreneurial experience and a long track record of creating jobs. Barry founded the company, Bullhorn Software, which now employs 150 people and earns over $25 Million in revenue. Under Barry’s stewardship, Bullhorn consistently grew its revenue year-by-year, making it one of Boston Business Journal’s, “10 Fastest Growing Private Companies” in New England five years running. The company Barry built has won over fifty different industry awards, and in 2005 Barry was named one of Boston’s “40 under 40” successful businessmen. He was also a finalist for Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year in 2009.

As Senator, Barry will implement the same private sector leadership that propelled Bullhorn to success. He will work tirelessly to ensure Rhode Islanders that same opportunity to flourish. We require a next generation leader with demonstrated vision, drive and spirit to break the federal government’s stronghold over our job creators. Rhode Islanders deserve to be praised, not penalized, for pursuing their dreams and for contributing to our local and national economy. They deserve a Senator who understands and who will enable them to succeed at whatever their chosen path may be. Every company in the world looking to expand its operations should look no further than Rhode Island, and we must work together to put our home-state on that map. It’s time to leverage Rhode Island’s resources, nimble size, marine economy and eager workforce to become the state that leads America out of recession and back to glory. We need a businessman, not a bureaucrat, to solve the problems our federal government has created.

Literally hundreds of thousands of pages of regulation are crushing the American Dream – YOUR dream – every day. Washington’s spending spree has run our economy into the ground and our massive debt burden is no longer sustainable. As Senator, Barry will declare war on our debts and deficit by eliminating earmarks, cutting all redundant programs, and fighting for a constitutionally-sound Balanced Budget Amendment. In addition, Barry vows to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with health care reform that actually lowers costs and promotes innovation, making cutting edge health care affordable and accessible to more people.

Our staggering 67,000-page tax code is also in desperate need of reform. For years, Barry has worked as a tax reformer and has a proven plan in place to tackle this challenge. Barry supports a fairer, simpler tax code that will help facilitate economic expansion. The best social program is a good job, but those jobs can only exist in an economy strengthened by lower taxes. Simply put, we need a 21st century tax code for a 21st century economy.

For too long, politicians have kicked the “entitlement reform” can down the road hoping someone else will fix the problem. Barry believes the federal government must stop looting the Social Security Trust Fund and treating it like its own personal petty cash drawer. Rhode Island has one of the largest senior populations in the country and we owe it to them to treat Social Security as retirement savings. Our citizens contribute much of their hard earned income to Social Security and those funds deserve to be respected and used for their intended purpose.

If we truly seek to effect change, from the halls of Washington to the seaside towns of Rhode Island, we must elect a leader with executive experience, not a career politician. The time for our current leaders to tinker around the edges has passed. Barry Hinckley promises to delve deep into the heart of the matters that affect us all, with bold leadership and fresh ideas, to create the strong Rhode Island, and America, our children deserve.
