Margaret Thatcher….what a lady….

I stumbled across this video of Margaret Thatcher and I had to share. What a woman, fearless and totally confident. I have utmost respect for her! And I totally agree with her here!!! Socialism cares little for the poor, it is only out to destroy the rich and those who dream.

A Convention of the States…. say whaaaaaat……SIGN ME UP!!!

Conservative Momma:

I thought I’d re-blog this one, since 16 States have filed to call for a Convention of States in their state House! We need 34, and of course we need this to pass both House and Senate….but it’s starting to get some steam! What is a Convention of States-Read and find out! :)

I had a really interesting conversation with a woman last night. She would definitely be classified as the “tea party-grassroots Conservative.” We started talking about Term Limits and she argued against it. I said “Why……!?? Oh my gosh-it was never meant to be a career!” I was initially shocked that she wasn’t for it! I haven’t met a true Conservative that doesn’t back Term Limits! I asked her to explain, and it was her reasoning, that got me thinking…..

“We have Term Limits, they are called elections.” Ughhh ya….ya…ya, I hadn’t heard that one before. I wasn’t thrilled to hear this uttered from her mouth. She then told me about her advocacy for a Convention of the States. She said it is here we can actually CHANGE how Congress is operating. We the people have the power, if we have the organization skills, we could make history.

My random thoughts…because yes I have had a glass or two of wine ;)

A lot of my Facebook, Twitter and blog participants have noticed an evolution in me. Yes, I’ll freely admit a change has happened in my thoughts, views and opinions. At my core I am Conservative through and through, I always will be-because in this system of values I find hope, resolution and true progress. My evolving has only led me to question whether a Conservative at this point has a party to align itself with? The Republican Party, at its base is Conservative but it has been overrun in may areas by Big Corps and Pacs, to me-it seems like everybody has somebody else’s hands in their pockets. I mean we knew the Dems, were bought out a long time ago with a socialistic agenda at the helm…..but I am wondering at this point is everyone bought??? Is everyone in it for themselves, and worse -have they forgotten the people they represent?

 Is it all about climbing the ladder?

City Council, School board, County Commissioner ….. then on to State House or Senate, if successful there, hell run for US Congress!

 Why does this bother me? Why do I cringe at the word “career” politician? They seem nice, right? I mean they seem like they are in it for good intentions….

 I guess what rubs me wrong is I am seeing so much “hype” over an individual. Hope placed on a very fallible human.

 I saw it in Hollywood. I saw it first hand working for a very well known celebrity. The glorification of “self.” I will tell you, this brings one to ruin. There is no freedom in being praised, it is actually a prison. My question is how can we expect our politicians to be any different? The glitz, the glamour, the praise- it’s become an unhealthy and polluted environment. It’s Hollywood but it’s cloaked in “news,” bills and …..cspan….and looooooong winded interviews. What was once FOR the people has become FOR the elected.  “Whatever keeps me in office”-is now the agenda. Campaigns have turned into month long previews and trailers of the next big hit!

  I was recently asked why I do what I do? Do I have an agenda? My answer-No. I blog because my heart is in this. My emotions, my thoughts, my tears, my children’s future. There is no hidden plan here….I do this for my simple love of this country.  That’s right, there are those that still believe in America and everything she was founded upon. “Would I ever run for an office,” I have been asked?  Ha! Only if there was a commitment to NO strings, no attachments and not being owned in any way…..but I have found this concept alone would take a revolution…..and perhaps that is my role. A Representative of the people, because I have not, nor will I ever forget what it is like be one. To not be in the upper class- to be middle class, to know the price of a gallon of milk and a gallon of gas, to cut coupons, to hunt for a deal, to know what it’s like to save for pre-school and to honestly feel, the weight of the unemployed on my shoulders…..I know, and may I never ever forget.

But until there are NO strings attached….I am here. I am blogging; I am using my free speech, my words, to usher in change.

#FREESTUFF UPDATE

Conservative Momma:

Ha ha! Awesome! :) You got no job, who cares-I got a phone! Give an incentive to not contribute!

#FREESTUFF UPDATE:  Phone Company ‘Outraged’ By Fraud, Abuse In ‘Obamaphone’ Program

To qualify for one of the cellphone plans, you have to be low income — on food stamps, Medicaid, housing assistance or some other government program.

But multiple times a CBS4 producer and reporter found phone agents in Denver circumventing strict government rules to ensure that only the truly needy get the free phones. Vendors, like Total Call, receive massive government subsidies to hand out the phones and the accompanying monthly plans.

RELATED: Government’s Free Phone Program Riddled With Abuse, Fraud

In one case a Total Call agent used someone else’s food stamp card to provide eligibility for a CBS4 producer. On another occasion another Total Call agent said it would be perfectly fine to use a friend’s food stamp card to establish eligibility and obtain a free phone.

If you give a mouse a cookie…..

I grew up having this book read to me, it’s called: “If you give a mouse a cookie.”  It’s a great book-I recommend it to your little ones if you have little ones :) The gist of the book is about this little boy who gives a mouse a cookie. Well, because the little boy gave the mouse a cookie the mouse now wants milk, then the mouse wants a straw, then he wants a napkin, then he looks in the mirror and notices his hair is a little long, he now wants a hair cut……and so on and so on….I think you get the idea….

I thought of this book today because I am noticing a trend….call it “trendy” if you will, it’s the trend of negotiating with terrorists.

It has been our policy as a country to never negotiate with terrorist. Obviously under our current administration this policy has crumbled. This was seen in the case of Bowe Bergdahl. The United States traded 5 Taliban Commanders for Bergdahl back in early June of last year. Which is interesting because just today the White House is now saying the Taliban is not a terrorist organization………… I actually kinda chuckled when I read that……so….. then what are they?  And what were these guys doing prior to being held at Guantanamo? Maybe they were Pro-lifers, or Tea Party activists….because that’s what’s being considered terrorism these days….shhheeeeesh!

At first everyone was elated when Bergdahl was traded ….I mean we got an American back-yes!!!  And yes we went against our protocol of “not negotiating with terrorist” but whatever right! Oh but wait…..congress was also supposed to be given a 30 heads up on anyone being released from GITMO, but our President uses Executive Order whenever he damn well wants so ya…..now we have 5 “peacemakers” or Taliban Commanders released and at it again-depending on which side of the aisle your on. Oh, but, the latest development is that Bergdahl is now being tried for desertion. Ooooooh ya…..that’s….that’s not good. But what is really not good is it is reported that 6 soldiers died on missions trying to find Bergdahl. Can you imagine if that was your kid? If you lost your child while they were out trying to find a guy that deserted?

Here is my point, We are now negotiating with bad dudes. Because of this negotiating that is now taking place, every American now has a price tag on their head…$$$$.

The story of “If you give a mouse a cookie” is the same as “If you give in to terrorist demands”

To Mr. Michael Moore…..what would Jesus do?

 So Michael Moore is in the news again and tweeting about Jesus and what he would do…..how cute right…

His 1st Tweet:  “Tomorrow’s Sunday School (1) What Would Jesus Do? Oh, I know what he’d do — hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back!”

2nd Tweet: “Sunday School: (2) But What Would Jesus Do if he could be a sniper & save soldiers lives by shooting “savages” in the back?”

First off, Michael Moore, do you know what Jesus would do? Do you? Because I do. I know him quite well. So before you go hypothesizing what Jesus would do, you best check yourself! I know Jesus got pretty pissed off when he went into a temple and saw all sorts of crap being sold there! He wasn’t happy about it, because it was to be a house of prayer. Yep, he got so angry he started flipping over tables and benches! He saw injustice and HE DID SOMETHING ABOUT IT!  So Mr. Michael Moore, to answer your question, “what would Jesus do”……well, I think if he saw innocent women and children being buried alive (because that’s what is happening over there) -he’d DO just what what Chris Kyle did!

Hey…..I get this is America and you have every right to spout your “little” (not really “little,” more like gigantor) mouth off, but just remember WHO provided you that right!

The picture says it all!

Now as far as Jesus and you are concerned….that Mr. Moore is solely up to you….
