Judgement Day For Obamacare Is Here

What the world is watching.

Hey folks,

Is there any doubt whatsoever, on what the world, not just our country, but the world will be talking about? Today is perhaps the second most important Judgement Day, in recent years. November 6, 2012 is the BIG one. That is Judgement Day for America itself. But today? Today we find out if the Supreme Court agrees with the truth. Obamacare is unconstitutional.

Remember back in the beginning of this whole thing. The LWL did everything in their power, bribes, strong arm, illegal tactics, everything and anything they could do to get this thing jammed through. No one wants it. Over two thirds of the America people are against it. They passed this garbage without even reading it.

Obamacare has NOTHING to do with healthcare. NOTHING. It is all about government control over peoples private and personal lives. It's all about growing government. It's all about furthering agendas. Not to mention government control of a HUGE chuck of the economy.

So? Many said, uh, I don't think so. So battles and rhetoric broke out. It ended up in the Supreme Court. The Liberal controlled media, dutifully reported that this was not even a question. Of course the President can do this. He is Obama. He is god. Of course congress has the power to force everyone in the country to buy health insurance. They are smarter than you. They know what is best.

As a matter of fact, when this first went to the Supreme Court, most "reporters" were saying this is a slam dunk for Obama. CNN's Jeffrey Toobin predicted an eight-to-one vote upholding the law. "Reporters" from all the major Networks were echoing him. There is no way this will even be close. Of course the mandate forcing all Americans to buy health insurance is Constitutional. Besides, without that, there is no way to pay for it. Which is true.

But then came the oral arguments. It became apparent, at least it seems apparent, due to the questions the Justices were asking, that they were not willing to lay down and simply rubber stamp Obama and crews Obamacare plans. So they have been doing what they do. Attacking certain Judges, and "reporting" doom and gloom for the country, if Obamacare is not found Constitutional.

I have told you this for years folks. They only attack what they fear. Look at Palin. {Laughing} Look Conservatism itself. Look at Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, all of Conservative Talk Radio itself. Look at their attacks on the New Media. Look at their attacks on the Tea Party. Oh, by the way...

“These Tea Party Republicans have worn out their welcome. But I’m telling you — getting rid of ‘em won’t be easy. They’re not leaving on their own. We’re going to have to boot them out the door like unwanted house guests. That’s why we’ve got to get behind proud Democrats like Louise Slaughter to make sure we can win a Democratic Majority.”

James Carville wrote this in an Email entitled "The Tea Party is Over." No it's not. Look at 2010. Look at 2011. Look at Wisconsin. Look forward to 2012. The Tea Party is one of the reasons that Obamacare and the mandate got to the Supreme Court to begin with. Sorry James.

I know the left love to think that they came up with their own version of the Tea Party in the whole Occupy B.S. However, what has the Occupy crowd actually accomplished? What has the Tea Party actually accomplished. Yeah.

So today is Judgement Day for Obamacare. This should be an interesting day. See you tomorrow to talk about it.

Obama Lawlessness Needs To Be Stopped

The future depends on it.

Hey folks,

I never called for Bill Clinton to be impeached. He committed impeachable acts, lying to congress, etc. But I, for the most part, believe that the way the people should deal with a Politician they do not agree with is in the ballot box. At the Voting Booth. I have never been one to go around and say this one or that one needs to be impeached. However, I'm starting to change my mind on Obama.

I told you who this guy was and what he was about for a year leading up to the elections. I have been telling you what the new liberalism is all about for years. Complete lawlessness. They do not care about you. They do not care about the country. They do not care about the rule of law. They simple care about whatever their agendas are, and they will carry out those agendas, by any means necessary.

I want you to think about this. This is no longer political. This is no longer a Right vs Left thing. This is now for the very future of this country. Think about the next President. The next ten. Think about the doors Obama is opening here. Think about who will walk through them in the future.

Here is what I mean. Bush opened the door for Obama. The Bank bailouts were unconstitutional. They were wrong. They should have never happened. But they did. No one stood up and stopped it. So in walks Obama. He starts bailing out everyone. Banks, Car companies, Solar companies. ETC. Bush's little six to eight hundred billion dollar bailout, turned in to trillions. It opened the door for Obama to do far worse, and even take over private industries. All because no one stopped Bush. Keep this in mind as we go forward in the conversation.

So Obama decides he hates the coal and oil industry. He decides that he is going to use the scam that is "man-made global warming" to obtain power, control, and of course, all that money. So he comes right out and says, "I will bankrupt the coal industry." "Your electric bill will necessarily skyrocket under my cap and tax plan." He does it. However, congress is not as willing. So? Forget congress. I'll give the EPA power to enforce the things I want done. A three judge panel just said OK. So now we have a non-elected group of people, with total authority over private business and private lives. They answer to no one. They can now do whatever they want.

Obama decides, you know what? I do not like this process of checks and balances. So he appoints 30 czars to do his bidding. But Pete, most presidents appoint czars. That's my point. Just because others did it, doesn't mean it's right or constitutional. Other's opened the door for Obama.

One of Obama's first acts as President, was to ignore the rule of law. There were many clear cut examples of voter intimidation across the country. Especially in Philly. People reporting this even have video tape of it. Obama tells his Justice department, forgetaboutit it. We will not investigate nor prosecute any case where the defendants are black. We will drop all these cases. Thank you.

Then we have the gulf oil spill which was nothing even close to what the left declared it as. However, he used this to enact a moratorium, that fits with his agenda, to ban drilling. Then, when a court came out and said, drilling needs to resume, he said? Yup. Forget it. I do not agree with the court, so I will not obey it.

Obamacare. Completely unconstitutional. Yet, him and his LWL comrades jam it through, by every means necessary, demanding the every American participate. We should find out Thursday what the Supreme Court thinks of this. However, I'm not sure that it will even matter.

Then he decides that he really does need the gay and lesbian votes, so he declares DOMA, the Defense Of Marriage Act, unconstitutional, he declares, we will simply, no longer defend it. Yup. Forget it. I do not care that it's the law of the land, singed in by Bill Clinton in 92. I do not agree with it. Therefore, it doesn't exist.

Then, in anticipation of the Supreme Court ruling, some say he was told in advance what it was, he came out a week ago Friday, and simply declared that he will not enforce immigration laws. He declare amnesty, The Dream Act, that failed in congress, as the law of the land. He said, we will no longer deport anyone between eighteen to thirty. Since congress will not do it, I will. So if you don't like it? Tough.

The Supreme Court DID come out in favor of Arizona. They said, a state has the right to check the status of someone already in contact with the police. In other words, in the investigation of the commission of a crime, they can check to see if the person even has the right to be here to begin with. Imagine that.

What does Obama do? He tells the court, and the state of Arizona, screw off. I kid you not.
The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.
Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport.
“We will not be issuing detainers on individuals unless they clearly meet our defined priorities,” one official said in a telephone briefing.
So do not even bother. You can do whatever you want. The Court can decide whatever they want. We refuse to follow the law. Don't like it. Tough. We will do whatever we want. Just so you do not misunderstand, let me put it as simply as I can. Screw Off.

To all my liberal friends out there, that are enjoying watching Obama shred the Constitution, completely disregard the laws of the land, and tell anyone that disagrees with him to screw off, better be careful. Let's say Mitt Romney comes in, and he will, but lets say Mitt Romney comes in and decides, you know what? I do not like this no prayer in school. So I will refuse to enforce it. If schools want to start and end everyday with a prayer to Jesus, cool. Do whatever you want. I also do not agree with this whole Estate Tax thing. So I am going to simply dictate to the IRS, stop collecting it. I will only follow the laws I agree with, I do not care about congress, or due process. I will do whatever I want to do. When you complain? Hey, Obama did it.

Whenever we start allowing one person, even if we understand and or agree with them, to become lawless, we allow others that follow to do the same. The others we may or may not agree with, but It will be too late at that point to reverse it. We are a country of laws. We are a country of checks and balances. Once we open the door for those in the highest office to disregard those laws, the process of checks and balances, we open the door for things much much worse down the road.

If I were a Governor of a state with an Illegal Immigration problem? I would get on national TV and say, "If you are here illegally, know this. We WILL follow the law. If you are found to be here illegally, and we arrest you, you will go to jail. If the federal government will not do their job, in jail is where you will sit. Period. "You can't do that." Yes I can. I will. "But that's not legal." So? The President just told the Supreme Court and Arizona, we do not care what you say, we will not enforce the law, so I am saying we will. If you get stuck in the middle? Oh well. Watch how fast my state lowers it's illegal immigrant problem.

We need people that will stand up to this out of control, lawless Obama regime. The House could and should cut off funding to Obama, and start investigations into his lawlessness. If needed, even start looking at impeachment and possible criminal charges. Because what he is doing IS criminal. If I were a Supreme Court Justice, I would be asking Obama directly, why he thinks he can completely disregard the Laws of the land and the Court's decision. I would make it extremely public at that.

Folks, the sad thing is, it is clear, that the Mainstream Media will not do their jobs. It is sadly clear that the House, under this current leadership, will not do anything to stop Obama's lawlessness. It is clear that it is up to you in November. Get ready, get informed, go vote. Close this door. Before something much much worse, walks through it. If that is even possible.

Government Toting the Slowing Of Energy Production

This is all IN SPITE of Government. Not because of Government. 

Hey folks, 

Bloomberg has a great article out there today. They are attempting to tote Obama and his administration as the ones that have brought this all about. The truth could not be father from their interpretation if they tried. Many of the points they make in this piece are one hundred percent actuate. However?  This is all IN SPITE of Government. Not because of Government. 

As you read this, I want you to ask yourself one question. What if? What if the administration actually just got our of the way. None of this is happening, well, other than perhaps the decrease in demand, because of the oppressive regulations and insane attacks on Coal. They admit, that because of Obama's Policies, entire towns are disappearing. Remember that? They feel bad. They didn't want to do it. But they did anyway
"But know right now, we are, we are struggling. We are struggling because we are trying to do our jobs. Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country. Just two days ago, the decision on greenhouse gas performance standard and saying basically gas plants are the performance standard which means if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem. That was a huge decision. You can’t imagine how tough that was. Because you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal. And to say that we just think those communities should just go away, we can’t do that. But she had to do what the law and policy suggested. And it’s painful. It’s painful every step of the way." 
That was EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spalding. I awarded him the Idiot of the Week for this statement. All the advances in energy are happening as they normally would. However, they are happening far SLOWER than they normally would. Reason? All the interference and blockation, is that a word? Blockation of this administration. They are thriving in spite of the out right attacks by Obama and crew. 

As you read this. Think to yourself, what if the government actually got out of the way?.. 
Energy use in the U.S. is expected to grow less than one percent per year through 2035 and the U.S. will become less dependent on foreign energy sources, the government reported.
The Energy Information Administration released its Annual Energy Outlook Monday, which projects energy production and consumption through 2035. The energy landscape in the U.S. has shifted dramatically in recent years. Domestic oil and gas production has increased as the industry has learned to tap resources trapped in shale formations across much of the country. At the same time, efficiency programs inspired by environmental concerns and recent energy price spikes have led to lower energy consumption.
Among the trends identified by the government:
LOW ENERGY DEMAND
— Overall U.S. energy consumption will grow at 0.3 percent per year on average between now and 2035. This is because economic and population growth are both expected to be slower than in the past, while state and federal efficiency programs are encouraging conservation.
— Gasoline consumption will fall by 0.6 percent per year through 2035 because cars and trucks are getting more fuel efficient in response to high gasoline prices and stricter federal fuel economy standards. Gasoline consumption could fall even further, if proposed fuel economy standards for cars and trucks are adopted. Cars would have to average 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025 under the proposed rule.
HIGH DOMESTIC ENERGY PRODUCTION
— U.S. crude oil production has increased over the last three years, reversing a decline that began in 1986. The government predicts the country will produce 6.7 million barrels of oil per day by 2020, up from 5.7 million barrels per day this year. The EIA said production could vary "significantly" though, because techniques used to find and tap newfound resources onshore are still being developed.
— Natural gas production will grow by nearly a third between now and 2035, and outpace consumption by early in the next decade. The U.S. will become a net exporter of natural gas as it builds liquefied natural gas export terminals.
— Crude imports will fall by about 2 million barrels of oil per day over the next decade, as production rises while demand slows. At today's oil prices, that will reduce imports by $58 billion per year.
CHANGING ENERGY MIX
— Natural gas will be used to generate more of the nation's electric power, because of low prices and environmental regulations that will reduce coal consumption.
— Renewable energy will be used to generate 15 percent of the nation's electricity by 2035, up from 10 percent now.
— The nation's emissions of carbon dioxide, the most important global warming gas, will remain below their 2005 levels through 2035. This is a result of low energy demand and the increased use of natural gas, which emits less carbon when burned than coal or oil.
Now they can attempt to give Obama credit for this. All this information comes straight from the government to start with. That is what they are doing. But the truth is, this is happening at a far slower pace than it would if government would just get out of the way. The experts, the REAL experts in the field, have told us that we could be completely energy independent in less than ten years. 

The numbers they cite are actually tiny compared to what we could actually accomplish in reality. Remember, gas was like $1.85 when Bush left office. They knew we were about to increase our own production and use our own resources. Now? 

All these numbers sound good, but just imagine if the energy industry was free to do their thing..

Sandusky Guilty, Preview

Preview for Sunday 062412


Jerry Sandusky's life as he has known it is OVER. Based on the charges he was found guilty of? I have a feeling he will be really popular in prison. 


Hey folks, 


More on Sandusky in a second. Happy Sunday to ya. I am your Provocateur of Thought, Peter Carlock, and this IS the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk2 Blog. New Pictures of me and the boys on Father's day at Nan's if you want to check them out on Facebook. And as always, if you want to be a part of the Opntalk2 Blog, you can send in articles, comments, complaints, or if you just want to say "Hi." The Email is as always, opntalk@gmail.com


Looking so very forward to spending the day with my Boys today. For those of you who do not like when I talk about me, or post pics of my life, with IS my Boys and Laura, too bad. Yup folks, some give me a hard time from time to time whenever I share. But trust me, those that do enjoy the pictures and hearing some of my stories, FAR outnumber those that seem to have issues. It's really simple. If you do not want to see them, do not click the link. If something, ANYTHING, that I am discussing upsets you, then don't read it. Not a hard concept.


Coming right up today...

The LWL Have Taken Over NBC

Girls Are Maturing Earlier




Sandusky. Here is a guy that had it all. He had a nice bank account. A family that loved him. A foundation to help "at risk" kids. We now know that those kids were at risk having any involvement with Sandusky. He had a great reputation. One of the greats among Coaches. 


Little did anyone know, in the meantime, the guy was a monster. Attacking and taking advantage of young boys. This went on for years. Now? It's over. The boys have closure. The Monster is off the streets. The Jury really wasted little time. They did find him innocent of 3 counts, but guilty of 45. For Sandusky? His life is over. He will be locked up for the rest of his pathetic life.  


Someone actually said to me yesterday, "Don't you feel a little bad for him? Yeah, he did horrible things to ten boys, and he will now pay for it." Yes he will. I have a feeling he will have no problem finding willing participates for sexual games in prison. "But Pete, look at all the good he did as well." Well


1) He unified the German people and helped them regain their sense of pride
2) Stabilized the German economy and eliminated foreign debt
3) He instituted the standardized schedule
for the German train system and a standardized measurement for rail cars
4) Created the modern autobahn system
5) Encouraged the development of the Volkswagen
6) Instituted the Kindergarten system
7) Encouraged the development of jet aircraft, and rocket development.


His name was Hitler. He also killed six million Jews. Was he a good guy? Did any of this negate all the bad things he did? No. This guy is a monster. I do not feel bad for him. I do feel a bit of sadness for his wife and family. This most likely will not be the end. There will be lawsuits to follow. 


As for Sandusky? He will get every bit of what he deserves. I truly hope this will help bring closure to those he abused. 


Going to fill my cup. Be right back.

The LWL Have Taken Over NBC

I told you so.

Hey folks,

I told you to look for the race card. That's all they have left. They can't promote Obama's accomplishments. They can not defend his blatant disregard of the Constitution. They are still attempting to ignore it, but they can't defend it. They can not run him on his plans for the future. They can not attack Romney for and extramarital affairs, or divorces. He has none. They failed at linking him to any wrong doing with Bain. They failed in saying he hates women. They got nothing. So? He's a racist. 

This one really kinda hurts me to talk about. Why? I loved NBC. I use to wake up every morning and watch the local NBC News. I would then watch the beginning of the Today Show. I loved their Prime Time lineup. From comedies to ER, even their specials. But the NBC I use to love is no longer.

The NBC of today has been completely taken over by the LWL {Left Wing Looneys} Completely taken over by them. I stopped watching the Today Show when it became apparent that Matt Lauer would attack anyone or anything that claims faith in Jesus or the Bible. He became, either scripted or just himself, one of the most anti-christian and anti-semitic host on the air.   

Then it became more and more apparent that they, especially MSNBC who's new slogan is "lean forward," has stopped reporting the news. They have become an extension of the Obama administration. They attack anyone or anything that Obama tells them to. They attempt to create the news to further agendas by editing tapes to say things they never said. The Trayvon Martin case, and now the latest was when the cut the audio off to make it seem like Romney was stupid. They all even laughed at his "ignorance" when he was in a mini-mart and ordered a sandwich on a touch screen. They got caught again, and their apology? "We didn't have time to run the whole clip, so here it is....OK. Now on to..." Yeah. No apology.

NBC and MSNBC are now nothing more than a joke. They have LWL members as main anchors, hosts, and regular commentators. The say the most vile things, like wishing Dick Cheney dies. All Republicans should go to hell. ETC. This is who they have become.

Now, since Obama and crew need votes so desperately, they are falling right in line and airing the "race card." That's all they got. Some of NBC's own have suggested, implied, and in round about ways, will bring up race. Then they will have "guests" that come right out and say the stupidest things. Like this....
"When he comes on 'Fox & Friends,' they'll like him. They're white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company." 
So everyone on Fox and Friends are racist. That's why they report negative stories about Obama. Don't you know? If you do not agree with Obama, your a racist. Well, to be fair, this was a "guest" of MSNBC, and his actual boss, the Politico, has since suspended him.
Politico founders John Harris and Jim VandeHei later sent a memo to staff, according to Politico, flagging "an unacceptable number of Joe Williams's public statements on cable and Twitter."
"His comment about Governor Romney earlier today on MSNBC fell short of our standards for fairness and judgment in an especially unfortunate way," they wrote.
They reportedly said "Joe has acknowledged that his appearance reflected a poor choice of words."
CNN has been infested for a long time. That's why no one watches them. The "All Barack Channel" ABC was, they seem to be trying to clean up their act. As ABC gets better, NBC is going the way of CNN. It is sad for me to watch. The once great network, home of real trusted reporters, is now a laughing stock. Even among their own kind.

I still love my local morning news. John FavoleRoxanne SteinLauren LaPonzinaKeli FultonCaptain Julie Stevens do a great job. I love getting the day started with them. I love getting my weather from Kait Parker as well. Christina Dettman has to be my favorite on the seen reporter. Ashleigh Walters does a great job as well. I still have a feeling, as naive as that may sound, of trust with this particular group. As for NBC as a whole? That's another story all together.

Whenever a news outlet give up investigation, and real reporting of facts, they are in trouble. When a news outlet not only stop reporting things that they should, to benefit some sort of political agenda, they cease being a news outlet. When they start attempting to create and control the news? Well, then they become nothing more than a propaganda tool. Sad to say, that seems to be all NBC has become. Truly sad.

Girls Are Maturing Earlier

What about the hormones and chemicals in the foods we eat?

Hey folks,

You know I've talked about this many times in the past. To recap, I told you that when I was in school, little girls looked like little girls. Little boys, little boys. Oh, there may have been one or two girls that went home for summer, and came back with signs of boobs. But today?

I challenged you, but I should have clarified a bit as pointed out to me when I did, to go sit at a bus stop. Now I'm not telling you guys out there to go sit at a bus stop and stare at the little girls getting off the bus. I should have said, when you are out and about, if you get behind a bus that is letting kids off, take notice. If you go and sit at a bus stop and you have no kids? Yeah. Don't do that. Don't ride around in the morning staring at all the kids waiting for the bus. You may end up answering some questions.

My point is, notice that difference in the kids. Little girls as young as 10 or 11 are getting on and off the bus, looking like they are 16. 14 to 15 year olds look like they are 18. I've been asking why for years now. What happened? What changed?

My first thought was hormones. All the growth hormones that we put into animals to make them grow faster and fatter. More and faster profit. Well, logic dictates to me that if you are putting growth hormones in food we eat, then we eat it, would it not have similar effects on us? Even if you are not a big beef person, you drink milk? You get the point.

So it seems that finally, someone is actually looking into this trend. I'm not sure I understand nor agree with this. However, if you think about it, they may be on to something here. According to Fox 10 Phoenix - Obesity chief suspect as UK girls as young as five reaching puberty
LONDON -- Girls are experiencing signs of puberty as early as five years old in the UK and the average age of puberty onset in girls has dropped by five years in the last century.
Wait. FIVE YEARS OLD???? If this is true than we need to speed up our research. That's insane.
Research on the worrying hormonal trend shows that the average age girls start experiencing puberty is now 10, The (London) Times reported.
Tabitha Randell, a consultant pediatrician at Nottingham Children's Hospital, said she has witnessed a case where a four-year-old girl was developing body hair and body odor.
Research conducted on thousands of UK girls in 2010 found that the group was "maturing significantly earlier" than girls in previous studies.
Parents and scientists are unsure about the possible causes. Obesity, however, is the biggest suspect.
OK. So what is causing the Obesity? What is Obesity? Bigger, fatter, more "meat." More on this in a second.
Stress is also considered to be an accelerator. US research has argued that prolonged stress caused by, for example family breakdown, could alter hormones in the body and speed up the process of puberty.
Stress makes no sense to me. I have never heard that stress can alter hormones increasing earlier puberty. That doesn't make any logical sense to me. But at least they are honest. Which is a start.
"The simple truth is we don't know why it is happening," says Professor Richard Sharpe, an expert in early puberty at the UK Medical Research Council.
"Obesity is the biggest factor that we know of. [But] there's clearly something else. Is it environmental chemicals, is it societal stress? I would say on the evidence, environmental factors are not a major player."
The medical community has agreed that more research is needed, but have advised parents to watch their children's weight.
Well at least they are not blaming this on Global Warming. I agree that more research needs to be done with this. May I suggest that we start with looking at the hormones we put in our food? Pretty please? Growth hormones are given to animals, such as cattle, and chickens, and even in some fish. The reason is simple. It is to make them gain weight faster, thus producing more products for consumers at a faster rate. Growth hormones also increase milk production in animals. So dairy farmers can increase their product and hence, profit. But what about the negative health repercussions for humans.

As they say, garbage in, garbage out. Or, you are what you eat. Whatever you put into your body, has an effect on your body. Good and bad. Early puberty in girls as been said to increase their risk in developing breast cancer and some researchers had started to think that there may be a risk of increased risk of colon cancer with certain growth hormones.

So if you put something into a cow to make it mature and get fat fast, would it not at least be worth looking into the relationship with consuming products with the hormones in them, and both early puberty and Obesity? Maybe the Obesity epidemic is NOT solely from poor eating habits. Perhaps it's not what we are eating, but what, what we are eating, is eating. Or being injected with. Just a thought.

Bullied School Bus Monitor Karen Klein Is A Saint

One hundred percent honesty on my part? I wanted to beat these kids. 

Hey folks, 

This one is going to be hard for me to discuss with you. It just really is. I had multiple people tell me about these videos. I TRIED to watch, I think the original, it's like 10 minutes, but I couldn't. I watched about 4 minutes in and could not take it. I made a decision to NOT post them, nor discuss them. Even when some of you wanted me to. Why? One hundred percent honesty on my part? I wanted to beat these kids.

I get the video in the Emails, opntalk@gmail.com. I sit back to watch it. Now those of you who know me, know I'm a "Christian." You know I apply logic and see reality for what it is. I understand kids can be cruel. I get teenagers, and preteens, can say and do stupid stuff. I have a bit of a temper, but it takes a lot to get me angry enough to argue. Even more to get me to think about violence. I never feel that violence is the answer. I never advocate violence toward any group or person. Just not me.

Yet, having said all this, here I was watching the video. No. I STILL will not post it here. If you want, you can find it. The Blaze has it. Or at least that is where I think the original video I saw was from. Thank you to all my Glen Beck fans. I got like five links to The Blaze. Oh, yes, that is Glenn Beck. The Blaze, GBTV, and the Radio Show are all one company. Anyway, here I am watching this video. If I were David or Bruce Banner, I would have mutated into the Hulk. I felt the anger growing inside. I felt absolute HATE growing inside. I had to turn it off. Like four minutes in. Seriously. If I were on that bus? I wanted nothing but vengeance for this sweet lady. I wanted them to stop. They didn't. 

Folks, these kids are the scum of the earth. They just are. The Parents, are scum. Glenn Beck did put it pretty good when he said "They 're dead inside." Then I see the Father of one of these scummy kids get on national television and say, his son suffered enough. Really? His son? You failed as a Father. You son is either too stupid to not follow the pack of scum, or he IS one of the leaders of the scum. I wish your son to feel, the same way this Saint of a lady did, when he was attacking her. 

This lady, Karen Klein, is a Saint. She did not lash out during the attack. She did not, and continues to say she does not, want any of the little scums arrested. She is now calling for the threats and angry messages to stop toward these attackers and their loser parents. 

Folks,  Karen Klein has worked as a School Bus Driver and now Monitor, for 23 years. She bought her purse at a grocery store. She makes like $15 grand a year. She has dedicated 23 years to kids. She is a sweet, and simple lady. What these dead inside kids did is completely sickening, and completely reprehensible. 

So when the video, that the scum posted on Facebook, then You Tube, went viral, this guy, Max Sidorov, started a website to raise $5000 bucks to send her on a nice vacation. In TWO DAYS, it has grown to $500,000. Disney offered her an all expenses paid trip for nine people to Disneyland and  for Disney World.

She is very thankful for all the support. 
"I want to thank everybody for so much kindness." 
Then she said this..
"I feel kinda bad for them and their families because of what's going on They're being harassed terribly, and I don't like that. I don't want any harm to come to them." 
Like I said, this lady is a Saint. I personally? I hope they are run out of town. I really do. I hope they are FORCED to relocate. Maybe they can learn a lesson and start over fresh, somewhere far away from this sweet lady. Oh I do not care about the forced apologies, excuses, or any of that BS. They need to seriously learn a lesson here. This is no way to treat a fellow human being. 

If you do find and watch these videos, just do so, knowing that there is a good out come after all this. She is getting what she deserves. I doubt they fully will. But the story does have a happy ending.

IWA For Sunday 062412

This guy is a complete idiot in general.

Hey folks,

Giving this guy the IWA is like giving someone like Nancy Pelosi the IWA. They are complete idiots 24-7. So winning the idiot of the Week, is no real great accomplishment for them.

Our winner is a typical New Liberal Loon. He is a card carrying member of the LWL. He is a kook, who thinks that the majority of Americans think like he does. He is wrong of course. But He is getting rich spreaded the LWL propaganda.

Every speech this moron gives is the same. Oh, he adds in a few things, but it's all the same old crap. Obama is God. Anyone not liberal are racists, bigots, homophobes, chauvinistic, hicks. We are too stupid to understand that the LWL are smarter than us, and we need to shut up and sit down, and let them run things. He is also a racist himself. But that is never discussed now is it?

Well, this moron gives a speech at the "Take Back the American Dream Conference.." Sounds like something the Tea Party would organize. Does it not? You can watch the speech HERE. Here are just some of the highlights...
“Look at the [young people] who watched the hopes of a planet be destroyed by a do-nothing, obstructionist Congress that still has not moved on climate change, that still has not moved towards clean energy, that that has been stuck on stupid – afraid of science now for three or four years. Look at the face of that.”
Lets see Vanny. Solyndra, Abound Solar, Energy Conversion Devices, BrightSource, LSP Energy, Evergreen Solar, Ener1, SunPower, Beacon Power, ECOtality, A123, Uni-Solar, Azure Dynamics, and now Solar Trust? All these companies were propped up by your tax money. ALL of them gone. The last one, $2.1 BILLION. Hundreds of thousands of job lost. Revenue to the Government, lost. Debt, increased. National Security, decreased. Cost of everything in an already hurting economy, increased. Yeah, that worked. 


Now lets look at reality. Lower cost of energy, including lower cost on everything. HELPS the economy. Increased revenue to the government, HELPS the economy. NO increase in debt at all. No cost to tax payers at all. Increased National Security through energy independence. Hundreds of thousands of new, long lasting, well paying jobs created. Who's stuck on stupid? 


Then he gives credit to "young people" for blocking the Keystone Pipeline.
“They said, ‘we’re not going to let them jab this dirty needle of a pipeline into America. We’re not going to let them take the dirtiest energy ever created and cook it up and stick it into this country. And they broke the seal in August of last year, in civil disobedience against this White House, nobody a year ago was saying ‘it’s time to do civil disobedience against the White House.’ These young people said, ‘My future and the future of this planet is too great,’ and 350.org and Bill McKibben and the Native American tribes went down in the heat of August. And they sat in, and thousand were arrested, and the media tried to ignore it, but a message was sent. And through their courage, the project was derailed.”
This guy is a kook. Occupy Wall Street and all this other garbage had nothing to do with killing the Key Stone Pipeline. A Billionaire kook did. Friends of Obama, did. Obama didn't bow to the pressure of anything the "people" said or did. HE wanted to kill the Keystone pipeline while attempting to take credit for something he had nothing to do with. You are an Idiot Van Jones. You really are.

Congratulations to you Van Jones. For towing the LWL party line, spreading lies and propaganda, and attempting to rally Obama kook supporters, I guess you deserve credit. You know your role and you are playing your part. Good little puppet. The problem for you is, America is not stupid. The majority of the people in this country understand that it is people like you, and Obama, that have put us where we are. Trillions in new debt. EVERYTHING is worse than it was when Obama took office. You want more of the same? We don't. Guess we'll see in November, who is really stuck on stupid. Right?

The Blaze  - ‘Stuck on Stupid’: Van Jones Compares Keystone Pipeline to Heroin Needle

"Candidate for the Idiot of the Week? I think so." 
Hey folks,
Happy Friday to ya. On Fridays, I go to the Emails and turn over the OPNTalk2 Blog to YOU. If YOU want to be a part of the OPNTalk2 Blog, you can as well. Just Email me articles, comments, complaints, whatever, to opntalk@gmail.com. Even if you just want to say "Hi." 
OK so? Candidate for the IWA? Maybe. But I find Lisa Brown a perfect example of the hypocrisy of the LWL {Left Wing Lonneys} This being by who it's by, many people will not even read it. So here it is. Judge for yourselves. 
A Michigan legislator, Lisa Brown, gave a speech in the statehouse last week that would have made her right at home in a women's studies course at a local community college, but a wacko in a group of actual legislators.
She commented on a pending abortion bill by first announcing that she was Jewish, kept kosher, described her various sets of plates, and then saying that Jewish law makes abortion mandatory to save the life of the mother.
This had absolutely nothing to do with the bill being considered, but it may explain why there are no Jewish Tim Tebows.
 Then she said: "I have not asked you to adopt and adhere to my religious beliefs. Why are you asking me to adopt yours?"
Her smashing crescendo was: "And finally Mr. Speaker, I'm flattered that you're all so interested in my vagina, but 'no' means 'no'!"
It's not clear where Rep. Brown got the idea that the Republican caucus was planning on date-raping her, but I think there's been a terrible misunderstanding. The bill under consideration merely ensured the safety of women having abortions -- and, in a small way, the safety of the fetus, whom the U.S. Supreme Court has prohibited legislatures from protecting directly.
Thus, the bill addressed insurance and inspections of abortion clinics, and included a requirement that the abortionist confirm that the woman having the abortion was not being pressured by a third party to do so.
I have not polled all the Republicans in the Michigan statehouse yet, but the ones I've spoken to assure me that Rep. Brown's vagina played a very small role in their deliberations. It's odd that she seems to think she's the object of so much Republican male fantasy.
Why must a certain type of woman always start shouting about her vagina whenever the topic of abortion comes up?
Do what you want with your vagina. Pro-lifers just want to stop babies from being killed. It would be as though a slaveholder complained that Republicans wanted to regulate his anus by abolishing slavery and taking away his right to crap on his slaves.
For making inappropriate remarks during a legislative session, Brown was prohibited from making floor speeches for one day. Being an hysterical drama queen who believes the Michigan Legislature was thinking about her and her vagina, Rep. Brown responded to the sanction by claiming she had been "silenced." A vulgarian gets a one-day penalty, and suddenly she's Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
Rep. Brown was not being silenced. She was being admonished for a crazy display of narcissism utterly irrelevant to the bill under discussion. I would never in a million years silence a woman because of her views on abortion, but I'd vote for a month of silence from this self-dramatizing freak.
The media are in full smirk mode, not at Rep. Brown's perversely self-referential speech positing that Republican legislators wanted to date-rape her, but at Republican bluenoses, whom they seem to think are shocked by the word "vagina."
Hey, does anyone else remember way back into the distant past three months ago when liberals were ablaze with indignation because Rush Limbaugh used the "s-word" to describe Sandra Fluke, another drama queen, who was demanding taxpayers pay for her contraception? That word had liberals fainting like Victorian virgins.
In a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, 75 Democrats in Congress called the language used by Limbaugh "sexually charged," "patently offensive," "obscene and indecent," and called on Republican leaders to condemn it. The president of the United States even called Fluke to see if she was OK after having been called ... the "s-word"!
But now, lo these many weeks later, you can't find a liberal female who isn't screaming "vagina." Thousands of beastly women appeared near the Michigan statehouse on Monday -- as well as every show, every hour on MSNBC that night -- to shout "vagina!"
On one of the 800 TV shows Rep. Brown did this week -- which, ironically, were the exact same shows that had featured Fluke describing her trauma at having been called the "s-word" -- MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell gushed about the advances society has made since the days when women did not prattle about their vaginas in public. He said: "It's easy, I think, for some of our audience tonight who are in their 30s or 20s to not be able to even comprehend what that world was like."
Rep. Brown somberly agreed, saying, "We have all, as women, come a long way."Another guest, Eve Ensler, authoress of "The Vagina Monologues," talked about the magic of thousands of women shouting "vagina" in public: "Many young women came up to thank both of us for giving them voice, for allowing them to be authentic, for allowing them to love their bodies, for allowing them to feel agency over their bodies and their rights, to know that they have choices, that what they decide to do with the reproductive decisions or abortion decisions or whatever they decide is their choice. It's their body."
That is, unless your little body hasn't been born yet, in which case, liberals think it can be torn to shreds and dumped in the garbage -- a point they argue by shouting "vagina" and claiming Republican legislators want to date-rape them.
Who is it by? Anne Coulter. {Laughing} Told ya. If I told ya who wrote it firs, changes are YOU would not have just read it. But she is right. {Smile} Here is the link: Human Events Online - VULGARIANS ON THE LOOSE! 
See you soon.

Why So Secret? Teachers Should Be Proud


We the tax payers, have a right to know.


Hey folks,

I have no idea why this bothers me so much. I really don't. One, it's typical. Two, I do not live in New York any longer. Three, my kid goes to an A-Rated School. But this does really bother me. I know the answer, why so secret. So do you. But really?

I live in Martin Country Florida. All the parents of kids, including myself, are proud of our public school systems. We have ALL A-rated Schools. We have great Teachers. If I want to know my kid's Teachers evaluation, no problem. If I want to know my kid's friend's Teachers evaluation, no problem. Why? Because they are great Teachers that are proud of the work they do. Oh, I'm sure there may be one or two that need improvement. But as a whole, they are doing a great job.

You work for whomever you work for. Hopefully you are working in today's economy. But you are one of say a hundred employees. You are doing a great job and you are rewarded, by praise, money, and or awards. Trophy, plaque, or whatever. What do you do with the award? You display it. Right? Frame the plaque, display the trophy. Right? You want people to know what a good job you are doing.

Let's say a reporter from the local news shows up and says, "We are doing a story on the company, and we want to post your evaluation and over all job performance." You should be, and most would be, proud to have this done. Now you will be in the news, and people will know how good a job you are doing. What's the problem? Who do you think would NOT like this? Yup. Those not doing a good job.

So in New York, tax payers are no longer allowed to find out how their Teachers are doing. They are no longer allowed to know if the Teachers in their Kid's Schools are  ineffective. Now there has been quite the uproar over this, so Gov. Cuomo, who introduced the measure, said he would compromise. He said, "Ok, OK. You can know if YOUR kid's Teacher is highly effective, effective, developing or ineffective." That's it. You need not worry about any other Teachers. Of course, this is expected to pass.
ALBANY — The public be damned! The state Legislature is likely to pass a last ditch bill that would prevent the release of teacher evaluations, while letting parents see the ratings only of their kids’ instructors.
The measure, introduced by Gov. Cuomo just before midnight Monday, could pass before lawmakers head home for the year tomorrow, sources said yesterday.
The Democratic-controlled Assembly says it will pass it tomorrow.
Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-LI) said his conference is reviewing the measure.
Mayor Bloomberg, who favors full disclosure of teacher evaluations and has blasted any limitations, declined to comment. 
Wait. Nanny Bloomberg is even against this? {Laughing} This is all Cuomo? Well, him and the LWL {Left Wing Looneys} that make up the Liberal controlled Assembly. You silly parents. You have no right to know what us smart people are doing. You wouldn't understand it anyway. We know what is best for your kids and you. 


I'm going to have to do a new series on Liberalism. I talked about some of this on the old blog. How original Liberalism is today's Conservatism. The New Liberalism is not true Liberalism. The once great Democrat Party is dead. It is completely infested by "Progressives" AKA, Socialists, Marxists, and Communists. The insane fringe, is not the mainstream Democrat Party. 


We will do the series on Liberalism. I just decided it. It's coming up soon. Stay tuned. But in a nutshell, they operate, worldwide by the way, with the same SOP. Standard Operating Procedure. First, they actually believe they are superior. They truly believe they are the smartest people on the planet. If you disagree with them, you are just too stupid to understand their brilliance. They believe that they have the "right", being the smartest people on the planet, to dictate to you, how you, need to live your life. 


They operate in the shadows. In the dark. In secret. They HAVE to. They know that the majority do not agree with them. They hide. They cut backroom deals. They bribe. They lie, cheat, and steal. They do whatever they need to to get their agendas passed and furthered. 


Whenever they are discovered, they do three things. The deny, ignore, then attack. If they know they stand no chance, they deny. No. We are not doing that. No. We do not believe that. Whatever. If they think they have a chance, they ignore. They ignore their critics. They ignore Laws. They even, as we see with this administration, ignore the Constitution. When all else fails, and they really want a particular agenda, they attack. They attempt to silence and destroy their opposition. This is their SOP. 


This thing in New York? This is who these people are. Screw you. Yeah we have bad teachers that have no business being in the classroom. But they are there and they are not going anywhere. You have no right to know who they are, or how bad they are doing. How dare you ask us to share information with you. You are nobody. You do not matter. Well, as long as you pay your taxes. Other than that, screw off. 


Oh, and you better not even think about buying that Big Gulp.

Liberalism Is Completely Fake


Ever wonder why the "Occupy Movement" failed? It was fake.

Hey folks,

What happened in 2010? The liberals got thumped all over the country. They got voted out of everything from the House to Dog Catcher. Why? Well, they are insane? Yes. Their policies fail every time they are tried? Yes. But it was because of the Tea Party.

A real, grassroots, movement of educated people. Real Americans that learned what the reality, of what was going on, was and  is. They gathered. They educated more. They stood up and said enough. Whenever reality and liberalism meet in battle, whenever liberalism and logic and truth conflict, liberalism loses.

So some in the LWL {Left Wing Looneys} Party, who have completely high jacked the Democrat Party, thought they would create their own "Tea Party." It failed. It continues to fail. Why? Because the Tea Party is real. Real people, real passion, together with one accord. The Occupy Movement? BUSED IN PAID protesters. They were organized by the LWL. They were PAID to protest. They were happy to get the dreads of society, and those too stupid to even know why they were there.

This is really not new. Liberalism is a very real threat. But liberalism itself is completely fake. They do not care about the minorities, until and when they want their votes. Hence, the record high unemployment and foreclosure rates that dwarf the total number of non-minorities. They do not care about Unions. Hence, Obama stayed out of Wisconsin. They do not care about the environment. Hence, they never change their lifestyle. They create "carbon credits," which means if they can afford it, they change nothing but now SAY they are carbon free. They do not care about the economy. Hence, out of control spending to friends and donors, and billions wasted on the non existent "green market." They do not care about the rule of Law or the Constitution. They only care about power, control, and of course, all that money.

So whenever you see a LWL member, fail to hold any public meetings, even in their home towns, it's because they KNOW you are waiting. This is why Obama will not answer an honest question, when asked, about his unconstitutional Amnesty policy. You are REAL. They know they can't defend their ideas. Their agendas. They know they are failing all over the place. They know you are hurting. But they do not care. They have agendas, that benefit them only, and they are sticking to them.

But they know all this. They know you are learning the reality. They know that you are rejecting them and their policies at an ever increasing number. They are even losing support amongst their more liberal factions. Their core supporters are even starting to question them.

So here comes Mitt Romney. Here is a guy with very little dirt. He has never been divorced. He is a man of faith. He is successful in both business in the private sector and in life. He is an intelligent guy. Good looking guy. He looks like a President. He has real plans to bring about real hope and change.

So they do what they always do. They attack him. But here is the thing. They got nothing. The war on women? Failed. The attacks on Bain Capital, failed. Attacks on his religion? Not working this time. They got nothing. So? Since they really have nothing, it's time to attempt to create something. NBC just got caught, AGAIN, editing a tape to make Romney look stupid. They want to create an illusion that he is not liked. So they do what they always do. They create protesters. They create something for the Obama State Run Media to report on. They PAY Protesters to protest Mitt.
DeWitt, Mich. — The protesters popping up at Mitt Romney's rallies throughout Michigan Tuesday look like run-of-the-mill grassroots liberals — they wave signs about "the 99 percent," they chant about the Republican's greed, and they describe themselves as a loosely organized coalition of "concerned citizens."
They're also getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed.
At the candidate's afternoon stop outside a bakery in DeWitt, a group of about 15 protesters stood behind a police barricade, a few of them chanting in support of Obama. Asked why he was protesting, a man dressed in a grim reaper costume pointed a reporter to a pair of "designated representatives" standing in the shade."I can't talk, you gotta get one of those people over there to talk to y'all," he said. "They're the ones who can talk to reporters."
{Laughing} Why are you here? "Uh, I'm being paid. Go talk to my boss." {Laughing}
Neither of the representatives agreed to give their names, but two protesters said they were getting paid to stand outside of the rally, though their wage is unclear: one said she was getting $7.25 per hour, while another man said they were being paid $17 per hour.
Meanwhile, about 50 feet away, another protest had been organized by local Democrats in conjunction with the Obama campaign. A campaign official told BuzzFeed they had nothing to do with the other group — which he said he believed they had been sent by the labor-backed "Good Jobs Now" — and confirmed that they were being paid.
"I mean, it's a free country, they can go anywhere they want, but they're not with us," the official said.
The protesters also made an appearance at Romney's rally in Frankenmuth earlier in the day. There, a young man who identified himself only as Demarcus stood with a group of about five others, stopping reporters after the candidate's speech and saying they were there "to represent the 99 percent and tell Romney to stand up for us." He said he was from the group, "Good Jobs Now," but did not indicate whether he was being paid.

Brittany Smith, a spokeswoman for Good Jobs Now, confirmed that they had protesters at the events, but said their "activists are NOT paid to protest. We are a statewide community advocacy group."
Of course they are being paid. They were paid to take dumps on Police Cars and live in tents in parks. They were paid to be the "99 percent." Or, they were there for the "weed and chicks, man." All these liberal organizations, a lot of which are well funded by the likes of Soros, are, well funded fakes.

Even this peace tells you that when Romney was done talking, they dropped their signs, loaded up on a bus, and drove away. 2009 was real. We won. 2010 was real. we won big. We just won big in Wisconsin. The Tea Party is real, and yes, they are very much still alive. The American people are real. Make no mistake about it folks, 2012, November, will be real again.

I'm not saying all this to comfort you. I'm not saying all this to assure you that all will be fine. I'm telling you all this so you are not discouraged at what you hear and see in the MMD {Mainstream Media Drones}Do not be fearful. Do not be discouraged. But do not be complacent either. Get ready, and in November, go vote.

The truth is, we need sheer numbers. we need you to go out and vote, not only for the right reasons, but to offset all the voter fraud that will be present. Look at Wisconsin. One area, what, got a 119 percent voter turn out? We need sheer numbers to offset the voter intimidation and fraud that was present in 2008. Liberalism may be, and indeed is, fake. But the battle for the very survival of this country is REAL.

Green Energy Rhetoric Vs Reality

Look at those states that have passed Green Energy Standards.

Hey folks, 

This is completely unbelievable. I will not come out and say that it's total, uh, spin? Or BS. I'll let you decide with some questions that just jumped right out of this story and slapped me in the face when I read this. 

Seems Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan is not convinced that his state is a good one to play with "Green Energy Standards." They passed a standard requires 10% of their electricity to come from "clean energy sources" by 2015, and some what that changed to %25 percent. Now I think he was being PC when he said this.. 
"Michigan is not necessarily a very good renewable state for wind or solar, relative to some of the states out west or in other parts of the country."
I really do. I think the truth is he looked around. Seriously. Look around. Look at those states that have passed Green Energy Standards. Look at California. Look at those that are not that concerned with it. Look at North Dakota.  Look at their economies. Look at unemployment. Look at housing. Look at revenue. Look at the difference.

So he said no thanks. Well, here is a guy, Stanley "Skip" Pruss who is principal at 5 Lakes Energy, LLC, in Lansing. What is 5 Lakes Energy, LLC, in Lansing? They are nothing more than a think tank, lobbying group. They talk. They spin. They get paid to convince private companies that they need to switch to "Green Energy" They try to convince you, that  "Green Energy" is the way to go. They do not offer anything. They just talk. After reading what Skip said here, well, I have some questions. 

First he opines that Michigan in the lowest standard in the 29 states that have mandated standards. What states? How are they doing? Seriously. Are they meeting that goal? How many people in the state are benefiting from it. How much money is the state spending on it. Is there a payoff? Is it working? On paper, sounds good, but what is the reality? 

See folks, MANDATES mean, the states HAVE to use your money. Tax Payer money, to meet that goal. Companies, producing or not, get your money. That's money that adds to the debt of the state, and money that can not be used where it is really needed elsewhere. 

Now this next part? Someone want to explain this one to me? Here is what you are going to read. Did you get your electric bill? What was it? Like $200 bucks? You do not have to pay that. You can pay 0.56 CENTS a month. Not kidding. That is what you will read if you just scan over it. Here it is.. 
Consumers Energy has adjusted the charge for renewable energy steadily downward -- from $2.50 per month for residential ratepayers down to $0.65 per month and then down again to $0.52 cents per month. DTE has also acknowledged that wind energy is much less expensive than anticipated. 
Anyone buying this? Seriously? Anyone. If I could meet all my energy needs for 0.52 CENTS a month, I will switch tomorrow. What do I get for that? Oh, he doesn't say. Sounds GREAT though. Does it not? Then this.. 
Validating the cost effectiveness of clean energy, the Michigan Public Service Commission has determine that wind energy in Michigan costs about 40% less than energy from a new coal plant. 
40 percent? What happened to 0.52 cents?  {Smile}  
This is because innovation has led to dramatic improvements in wind and solar technologies, lowering costs and improving the economics -- a trend that will continue. And because they don't burn fossil fuels, there is zero threat of volatile or escalating fuel costs ratcheting up utility bills. 
So what happens when the wind doesn't blow? What are the turbines running on? How many people are actually benefiting from this? How much are they saving? How is it actually working? How many? Whats the number? Who are they? Then he wants to talk about Germany. 
 Germany backed renewable energy policies aggressively and now gets 17% of its electricity from clean energy sources, with targets of 35% in 2030 and 80% by 2050. The result: 382,000 new jobs in thriving clean energy technology sector and a projected 600,000 jobs by 2020.
Who? Is it 17 percent of the population? Or is it Government? Or is it two or three companies? Who? We don't know. See folks, these numbers are misleading at best. No real facts to back any of this up. 600,000 in 8 years is a great number. But is it real? Projections are great. But they mean little. Remember all those Shovel Ready Jobs if we just pass the stimulus? Where are they? Remember all the jobs for Solyndra? Hundreds of millions of dollars? Where is Solyndra? 

I hope that Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan stays strong here. Taking a gamble on already proven failures is not a wise move in an already hurting economy. That's just not logical or a smart move in anyone's book. But that is liberalism. I can make anything sound good on paper. But where is the prove that any of it is real? There is none.

Happy Father's Day, My Story

Preview for Sunday 061712

Hey Fathers, and all,

Happy Father's Day to you. I want to tell you a story. I will in just a few minutes. Happy Sunday to ya. Welcome to the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk2 Blog. I am of course your Provocateur of Thought himself, Peter Carlock. Glad you stopped by.

We do, from time to time, go to the Emails. In some cases, I turn over the entire Blog to you. The true OPNers out there. You too can become a part of the OPNTalk2 Blog by sending in articles, comments, complaints, or you can even just say "Hi." The Email is, as always, opntalk@gmail.com. I always look forward to hearing from you.

Coming right up today?

Obama De-Facto Amnesty



So to the Fathers out there. I grew up without a Dad. I've told this story before, but we have a lot of new people checking us out every day, so I want to tell it again. With some new perspectives now that I'm a Dad of two Sons.

I grew up without a Father in the house. My Dad left when I was about 13 months old. I grew up being raised by my Grandmother. Do not get me wrong. I would not change a thing. My Mother was in the house, but she was working all day. So Grandma Dot raised me. I had a great childhood. I never really thought of my Dad. Whenever the topic came up, my Mother would talk things about him to paint a picture in my head of an evil guy. When Star Wars came out, I was eight years old. One of my favorite characters, still today, was Darth Vader. I actually pictured Darth Vader being MY Father.

So life goes on. I grow up. There was a knock on my door, when I was 20. I opened the door, and there standing in the doorway was ME. A Six foot one version of me. But it was me. I was looking into a mirror. He is my brother. Now I'm an only child. Turns out, I'm an only child with eight brothers and sisters. This brother, is a Pastor, and told me that he felt lead to contact me and let me know that "our Father" was not doing well. He was at the point of death, and he really wanted to meet me. I said thanks but no thanks. He gave me my Father's address and phone number and say just in case "you change your mind."

So about a month passed. I couldn't get it out of my head. So I called the number. I talked for a bit to my Stepmother, and then I heard my Father's voice for the first time. Actually, kind of sounded like Darth Vader. So we set a date. When I was 21, I met my Father. I'll never forget that first day. I arrived, there was a sign on the door "No Smoking Oxygen in use." So I put out my cigarette, and knocked on the door. "That you son?" "Yup" "Come on in." I opened the door, and there sat my Dad. Oxygen hose in his nose. Cigarette in one hand, beer in the other. I said "You are going to blow yourself up." He said to me, "If I'm going to die, I'm going to die my way."

I do not know what it was. But that moment in time, that first eye contact, it changed me forever. All the hate, anger, hurt, even questions, lifted off me. Gone. He said to me, "Son, I'm sure you have lots of questions. Nothing is off limits. Ask me whatever you want. I will answer it honestly. Of course, it will be up to you to believe it or not." I said, to my own amazement, "Nope. It's a new day. Lets move on from here." And we did.

In the next six years, I got to know my Dad. I realized, I WAS my Dad. In every aspect. From my mannerism, attitude, everything. I'll never forget one day I was visiting, my Dad said, we are going to the Butcher to get some meat for dinner. "Grab the VCR." I said, "Uh OK." I grabbed the VCR. We walked into the Butcher Shop and he came out of the back. "Well, well, Percy. There's no denying he's your Son." My Dad introduced me and the Butcher grabbed the VCR and told my Dad, "You know where everything is." So my Dad went around the counter and cut is own meat. A customer came in, my Dad cut their meat. The Butcher? He fixed the VCR. THAT was TOTALLY me. If I go into a place more than two times, I become part of the family. I kid you not. I would make my own sandwiches in a deli in NY. I would get free pastries from a Bakery. I'm known by name by everyone and every business I frequent. I walk in and the workers will literally jump the counter and make me fresh coffee. Not joking.

My point is this. My Dad was not anywhere around when I was growing up. He had no influence in raising me. Yet, I AM him. Now I am a Father of two Boys. Joshua is going to be 7 next month. Elijah will be 2 in January. I AM involved. One of the mistakes I will NEVER make is NOT being there for them. I just can't do that. I will be there for them as long as I walk this Earth. My Father influenced my life, both when he was not there, and when he was. I will influence my Sons lives, by being there. As we grow as a family, I am learning that my influence is not always intended or planned.

Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there. Remember, any Joe Schmo can impregnate a Female, but it takes a REAL Man to be a Father. Enjoy your day Dads, and remember, it is up to you, to really deserve it. To my ultimate Father who is in Heaven, Happy Father's Day to you God.

Be right back folks.
