RACING IN THE STREETS: Catastrophic Spending: Change You Can Believe In.

Stumping on behalf of Barack Obama during the 2008 Presidential contest, rocker Bruce Springsteen’s oft-heard plea to voters just before belting out his campaign anthem “The Rising” was, “I want my country back”. Well, we don’t know if the Boss got his country back or not, that’s up to him. But, what we do now know as this “Reign of Change” barrels on down the highway towards the 2012 election is this,”The Rising” was eerily prophetic… Which, might help explain why so many fans of “The Boss” used their “Cash For Clunkers” refund as down payments on one of these street racers…

EDITOR NOTE: The following article mentions the Tea Party and other Patriot groups organizing on the grass roots level for the upcoming 2012 election cycle. As a single-issue voter for life in defense of unborn children, I’ve been troubled recently by reported actions of Tea Party members preventing the pro-life message at Tea Party rallies. This site does not support nor advocate on behalf of any political party or candidate unwilling to defend the right to life… 

Catastrophic Spending: Change You Can Believe In.

We have contended in the past that much if not most of the economic problems America and the world are encountering may be purposely caused, by plan, involving multiple fraudulent, manufactured crises, and we have laid out our evidences. However, the economic situation is now beginning to get so precipitous that we might better focus on pure numbers, and leave motivations out of it altogether.

Let’s just look at what has happened, since January 2009 until today:

Item: January 2009 Today % Chg
Avg Retail Gasoline / gallon $1.83 $3.44 84%
Gold / troy oz $853.25 $1,369.50 60.5%
Corn, Yellow $3.56 $6.33 78.1%
Soybeans, No 1 $9.66 $13.75 42.3%
Sugar cane, raw $13.37 $35.39 164.7%
Unemployment, non-farm, overall 7.6% 9.4% 23.7%
Unemployment, blacks 12.6% 15.8% 15.8%
Number of Unemployed 11,616,000 14,485,000 24.7%
Federal Employees 2,779.000 2,840,000 2.2%
Median Household Income $50,112 49.777 -0.7%
Food stamp recipients 31,938,716 43,200,878 35.1%
Unemployment recipients 7,526,598 9,193.838 22.2%
Long-term unemployed 2,600,000 6,400,000 146.2%
Americans in poverty 39,800,000 43,600,000 9.5%
Failed banks 140 164 17.1%
US Dollar supply (M1) in billions 1,575.1 1,865.7 18.4%
Us Dollar supply (M2) in billions 8,310.9 8,852.3 6.5%
National debt in trillions $10.627 $14.052 32.2%

___________________________________________________

When you put everything aside other than the raw numbers, you see that something absolutely must be done. Just considering debt alone, we have accumulated debt since January 2009 at a rate 27 times faster than our entire national history. Look less at the actual debt, which is bad enough on its own, but concentrate for a moment on the rate at which it is accelerating. If you were cruising along at 65 mpg and you were passed by a car going 27 times faster, that car would be doing about 7,555 mph.

To say this cannot be sustained is a radical understatement of the case. Of all the serious crises we face of various type – borders, unemployment, social, political, international, military, geo-political – this economic crisis is the one that is most likely to do us in as a nation.

The spending has got to be stopped.


At the grass-roots level, Tea Party and Patriot Group activities continue in recruiting volunteer citizen lobbyists in the local area. They are looking for people, perhaps retired, who can devote the time required to become a non-paid (and therefore non-registered) lobbyist, at the local and state levels. These volunteer lobbyists need to not only promote fiscal conservatism, but to find or identify, and promote and support citizen candidates for office, at all levels. The most important level, believe it or not, is the lowest. The local political arena is the seedbed, or the greenhouse, in which higher representatives are developed for higher office.

Organizers are looking to get citizens who will commit to camping out at town halls and attending all meetings; to getting familiar with office holders and contenders, and to getting the voice of conservatism heard. Large and small city halls, and the state house are all in need of knowledgeable citizens who are motivated enough to commit to this as if it were a job.

Most lobbyists, we have learned, are highly paid registered professional lobbyists, and a significant number of them are lovely young women. (I wonder why.) They get the attention of the holders of power, and they jealously hold it. They camp out at congressmen’s doors. But, we have learned, if you are not paid, you don’t have to register, and you can do the same thing, in a more decent and respectable way.

If you choose to do this, you will learn that the holders of power will tend to respect you and to listen to you in spite of all obstacles, because there is one thing they fear.

They fear the voters who you represent. The one thing they fear is political defeat.

Think about it.

Obama’s Amnesia Express — ‘This election is not about what we’ve done.’

…And two years into it we know why.

As Americans wait on the president to finally decide on what his “pay grade” actually is as president, (Hint: providing the country with a workable job prescription for the ills of 10.2 unemployment might be a start), he warns his followers in Madison, Wisconsin, last week that the “other side” is counting on amnesia come November 2. All this while asking that we forget about what he’s done. Which is… well, you fill in the blank_____________.

Outside of the dreamy-eyed devo-ite organizers protrayed below, is anyone actually still buying into the “game of change” thing?

Welcome to the world of selective amnesia…

I love “The Boss”, but unfortunately for Obama and his Dems, too many Americans need one…

Pelosi’s LGBT Pride Video: “40 and fabulous.”

‘And a pinch to grow an inch…’

Back in 2007 silence and denial surrounded Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to condemn Folsom Street Fair promo material in which that blasphemous Last Supper depiction revealed numerous sex toys upon the table (altar for true Catholics), including a “red fist” representing the disgusting act of “fisting”. Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s press secretary at the time, was quoted as saying:

“As a Catholic, the speaker is confident that Christianity has not been harmed…” 

Sure.

I guess watching ones P’s & Q’s prior to a presidential election changes things once your party takes power… Nancy is no longer quiet about her anti-Catholic position on promoting homosexuality in America. And appears little concerned that such positions do, in fact, harm Christianity and the salvation of souls.  And so, these questions remain:

Where is her bishop, and why isn’t she excommunicated?

Video–Pelosi invokes St. Joseph in prayer on behalf of her evil abortion pogrom

CANON 915 NOW…

Pelosi — “This bill is about health care and not about abortion,” Pelosi said. “There will be no further changes in the bill.”

There are instances when a Catholic’s unworthiness to receive Holy Communion will be determined by the Church because of his or her public conduct, which may be in opposition to the moral law as taught by the Church. In these cases, the Church forbids members to receive the sacrament. 915 in the Code of Canon Law states:

Those who have been … obstinately persevering in
manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.

In recent years, the Holy See has declared that those who are unworthy to receive Holy Communion if they are “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin” include persons directly involved in lawmaking bodies. These have a grave and clear obligation to oppose any law that attacks human life.

Emergency Novena for Health Care Legislation

ED. NOTE: I received this today, please join The Orate Fratres Blog in these prayers…

The HEALTHCARE vote is very close. We must do all that we can to keep federal funding of abortion from increasing beyond the Hyde amendment language. This includes prayer. Below I have included a simple emergency novena to pray each day prior to any vote. This novena is attributed to Mother Teresa. It is very simple and merely involves saying the short Memorare prayer nine times throughout each day. We very much need Our Blessed Mother’s help.
