Hi everyone. It has been a long time, but I’m back. Just noticed in my Women’s Health magazine (which I cancelled this morning) that the publisher (Rodale) has allowed Planned Parenthood Action Fund to promote its new “Women are Watching” attack on presidential candidates who are pro-life. This is not why I bought a health magazine. Pro-abortion literature should not be freely advertised in a public magazine. Hopefully, the publisher will insist that National Pro-Life champions be given the opportunity to respond.

How many Americans know that sitting in the Healthcare bill from Obama is a new tax— whenever a home is sold a 3% tax will be imposed? We need to reverse this and fast.

All Hail Queen Nancy’s 757
The Jet is a USAF Boeing 757.
*And they STILL want to talk about Sarah’s clothing??
Madame Pelosi wasn’t happy with the small private jet that comes with the Speaker’s job…no, Madame Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 200 seat jet that could get her back to California without stopping!
Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone what Nancy’s Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American Taxpayers, for the thousands of gallons of fuel every week.
Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California , cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000 one way!
As Joe put it, ‘Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday Night.’ Cost to us is another $60,000. Folks, that is$480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers of $5,760,000. No wonder she complains about the cost of this war…it might cramp her style and she is styling, on my back and yours
I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of this country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.
Madame Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires.
These people are nuts.
If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list!
Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane or crew, just fuel!
One wonders what her total package cost us? And she wants to tax OUR Ira’s & 401K’s…..
YOU WILL NEVER SEE THIS IN ANY NEWSPAPERS IN THE COUNTRY

E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post says readers are more interested in the economy, health care and education than in moral issues such as abortion. Unfortunately, this might be true, except that the moral issues will always be of the highest consequence to the human race, in terms of their salvation in eternity. All the other worries of the world will come and go but what we stand for morally is what makes us who we are. Funny, that this more serious issue is placed last in so many minds, including Mr. Dionne’s.

Here is a brief look at President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court. You may want to forward this to your friends.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor
Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
President Obama has promised to nominate liberal judicial activists who will indulge their left-wing policy preferences based on “empathy” instead of neutrally in applying the law. In selecting Sonia Sotomayor as his Supreme Court nominee, President Obama has carried out his promise.
In a speech as a Court of Appeals judge, she said, “The court is where policy is made.” Her opinions have followed that approach. What she was referring to was that public policy was made by the Court of Appeals, not by the Legislature.
In a recent case, Ricci v. DeStefano, Sotomayor ruled that reverse racism was to be used in making decisions. She ruled in favor of a city that used racially discriminatory practices to deny promotions to firefighters. In Ricci, an applicant to be a firefighter scored the highest on the test but was denied the job because he was not black.
According to Judge Jose Cabranes, Sotomayor’s colleague, Sotomayor’s opinion “contains no reference whatsoever to the constitutional claims at the core of this case,” and its “perfunctory disposition rests uneasily with the weighty issues presented by this appeal.” Even the liberal Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen expressed disappointment with the case, stating, “Ricci is not just a legal case but a man who has been deprived of the pursuit of happiness on account of race.”
Sotomayor readily admits that she applies her feelings and personal politics when deciding cases. In a 2002 speech given at Berkeley, she said she believes it is appropriate for judges to consider their “experiences as women and people of color,” which she believes should “affect our decisions.” She went on to say in that same speech, “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”
The poor quality of Sotomayor’s decisions is reflected in her record of reversals by the Supreme Court. Sixty percent of her decisions have been reversed by the Supreme Court.

We did not find each other growing up in the same house.
We might have met as children, in college, as young wives, or older women.
Our relationship is not bound by family ties.
It is one chosen because of need, kindness, friendship and love.
More than sisters, we can tell every bit of our lives if we choose.
We talk about our health, beliefs, sex, children and life.
We start to interrupt each other and finish the other’s sentence.
We laugh out loud and cry as we share who we are.
We have been there for each other through birth, illness,
Death, marriage, divorce, and as simply women.
More than sisters we can just be there without a word
Or we can talk all day and all night and still not be done.
More than sisters, we can pick up the phone after several years
And talk as if we had been together yesterday.
We shop, eat, drink, sing and dance together.
Each of us different, we think the other one beautiful at any size or age.
We can trust that if we need her, she will always be there.
If we feel alone, sad, angry, misunderstood, she will always be there.
More than sisters, we watch to see if she needs us.
For often we can see it before she ever knows.
As we grow older, things become less important
People become the treasures of our wealth
More than sisters, we value the time we have together
And when we are gone, we trust that she will remember us as more than sisters.

The SEUI Payoff-President Obama to California: Drop Dead
California has immense fiscal problems. That’s not exactly news, but this is: President Obama could soon make these problems far worse. The beackground: In February, as part of overall spending cuts, the Legislature lowered the state’s maximum contribution to the pay of 300,000 unionized In Home Supportive Services health workers. This saved $74 million.
Most state employees were also subject to pay cuts. But after an Apr 15 conference call involving Obama administration officials, aises to Gov. Schwarzenegger adn reps of the SErvice Employees International Union, the White House threatened to withhold $6.8 billion in federal stimulus funds unless the Legislature and the governor canceled the home health workers’ pay cut before it begins July 1st.
The ostensible reason is an inventive reading of language restricting how stimulus money can be used. A more plausible reason is the SEIU’s political clout. It gave $33 million to the Obama presidential campaign. …
Then there is the bombshell April 13 investigation by the Los Angeles Times that found the $5.4 billion In HOme Supportive Services program to be riddled by fraud. Attempts to investigate this fraud are severely limited. Why? Almost certainly because of SEIU political pressure during the drafting of bills dealing with in-home care…
Beyond these specific concerns, there is a much larger issue: the appropriateness of the Obama adminstration’s use of stimulus funds as a tool of coercion. …We think far fewer members of Congress would have backed the $787 billion stimulus bill if they knew this is how the president would use it. For all these reasons and more, the Obama administration must deop its intervention into Ca and other states’ politics. What’s gone on to date isn’t just disappoining and disturbing. It’s scandalous.

My grandson has had enough colds and infections to keep him home from preschool for a few weeks. So, I have been spending lots of wonderful time with him, playing baseball, golf, and blowing bubbles. It is enchanting to see a colorful, fragile bubble find its way through the sky, sometimes landing and balancing for awhile on a blade of grass. How important life is to all of us. Every moment can bring a new insight or wonder, if we but sit and wait, listen and watch. I hope your spring days are full of the best in life.

Time is running out to stop the confirmation of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be President Obama’s Secretary of Heath and Human Service. A floor vote in the U.S. Senate is imminent and your signature is urgently needed on our petition to block this nominee. Gov. Sebelius has compiled a record that is anti-woman and anti-life, yet President Obama has chosen her not only to lead the federal government’s largest agency but to oversee a massive expansion of the government’s role in health care.
Troubling news about Gov. Sebelius continues to pour in. Her close alliance with Kansas’s abortion industry has been known, but the extent of her ties, as now revealed, suggest that she may owe her entire political career to the huge sums this industry spent on and gave to her campaigns for public office. In particular, the notorious George Tiller, who has established his Wichita, Kansas facility as a national hub for second- and third-trimester abortions, helped launch Gov. Sebelius by:
* Donation $200,000 in abortion proceeds to his own political action committee in Kansas in 2002, making it the largest PAC in the state and a primary supporter of Sebelius’s.
* Raising $70,000 from other Kansas abortionists for this fund to support Sebelius.
* Donating more than $23,000 directly to Sebelius’s own campaign committee, after which, as governor, she vetoed legislation that would have guaranteed minimum health standards to protect women in the state’s abortion mills.
This record underscores how beholden Sebelius is to the ugliest business in America. It renders her unfit for any office, but particularly to lead the agency charged with protecting our families’ health.
GOP Tries Making Amends on ‘Hate Crimes’ It wasn’t the Fourth of July, but there were plenty of fireworks on Capitol Hill yesterday in two different House committees. After much anticipation, the Judiciary Committee wasted no time getting to work on “hate crimes” legislation. Under the new bill, people who commit certain crimes would face a stiffer punishment for any prejudice they might have toward homosexual and transgender victims. In essence, it singles out some Americans for “extra protection” under the law based upon their sexual behavior. By late Wednesday, the Democratic majority had faced so much opposition from Republicans on H.R. 1913 that the hearing was discontinued. The debate was reignited today, thanks to the stack of amendments offered by Reps. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Steve King (R-Iowa), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). Each one highlighted the absurdity of the bill by asking Democrats to extend the same unique status to the elderly, the military, pregnant women, and the unborn. Every Democrat who was present at the hearing voted against adding these groups as a “protected class.” Although no official timetable has been set, the “hate crimes” bill could hit the House floor in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, over in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked pointedly by Reps. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) and Jeff Fortenberry (R-Nebr.) whether “reproductive health” (as defined by this administration) would include abortion. Clinton said yes and also admitted, when pressed, that her department would work to overturn pro-life legislation in other countries.
