UPDATE: We are meeting today in Olympia to begin work on an initiative to overturn the Legislature's new homosexual legislation, should they pass it. That will include an effort to replace certain senators and representatives in upcoming elections who were unable to vote for marriage. Details forthcoming.
If you want to know where we are at this point in American history, you will not need a GPS.
Simply proceed as you are and continue to take every left turn.
This week the G20 meetings begin in London. There is already a huge pushback from the US and our out-of-control economic policies. China has asked for a new currency to replace the dollar for international purposes, while the rest of the world sits in disbelief at Obama's new economic policies.
He is following some of the same policies that Argentina adopted some years ago.
Once upon a time "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" was a fascinating show and it was exciting to see Publisher's Clearing House show up at someone's door about Super Bowl time and give them a million dollars--then later ten million. Forget about it. Now that's little money---peanuts.
Now it's a trillion here and a trillion there. $6 trillion, no, $9 trillion, well, maybe more, we'll see, debt for our children and their children and their children.
How much is a trillion anyway?
We now live in the "Kingdom of Trillion" which is located in the "State of Denial".
Sen. Judd Gregg told the nation Saturday that, "If you take all the debt of our country run up by all of our presidents from George Washington through George W. Bush, the total debt over those 200 plus years since we started as a nation, it is President Obama's plan to double that debt in just the first five years that he is in office."
Out in the Northwest quadrant of this vast new Kingdom is the colony formerly known as Washington State. While only a mere colony, Princess Gregoire and her Court are doing their best to achieve a performance medal from the Kingdom.
During the campaign for her re-election it was a $5.4 billion deficit problem---now after the election, we're talking $9 billion and that was a couple of weeks ago.
Not only is she and her court poised to throw 5 to 10 million dollars on their new domestic partnership, which will become gay marriage program, she and some wise legislators have a plan to fix the problem. You will not believe what they see as part of the solution.
I want to share that and more, as well as some links that can be very helpful. Please read on.
Senator Judd Gregg is a very successful business man. He has earned millions of dollars through wise investments, in fact his expertise is so well known that President Obama initially reached across the isle and ask him to be the Commerce Secretary. At first Gregg agreed, then upon a closer look at exactly what Obama had in mind, he said he could not be a part of it and withdrew.
On Saturday Gregg pointed out during his Republican response to the President's weekly address, that Obama's debt will exceed all debt combined from George Washington through George W. Bush in the history of our country---in just 5 years.
He also said, "He isn't trying to hide this; in fact he is very forthright in stating that he believes that by greatly expanding the spending, the taxing and the borrowing of our government, this will lead to prosperity."
President Obama is betting the farm in a $4 to $10 trillion poker game. And it's your farm he's betting.
I am giving you a link to the Christian Science Monitor news service, which has combined a video of Obama's speech and Judd's speech, both of which are only a few minutes long. This link also includes the text of Judd's speech.
I am also including a link to the National Journal online which is the text on one of the most informative roundtable discussions--from both sides, that I have seen.
And one more helpful link is to the Financial Times online which shows a very brief cartoon of how the "Geithner Plan" for prosperity is supposed to work. The Times is, of course, out of England and is a snapshot of how the financial experts in London feel about "The Kingdom of Trillion". It is not intended to be humorous, but I smiled.
Their closing comment? "Don't bet your last trillion that it will work."
Several have pointed out in the past week that there are a couple of bills in the works in Olympia that are intended to increase the cash flow and help "fix" the Princess' $5, I mean $9, or whatever it ends up being, problem.
HB 2300 is designed to expand gambling across the state.
That's right, they believe that if they expand gambling, they will increase cash flow into the Kingdom and everyone will live happily ever after.
The evidence that gambling can be harmful is overwhelming and undeniable, expect by the Court in the Kingdom and the Princess.
When you see the gambling commission running ads on TV telling the public they fund counseling and recovery programs for people addicted to gambling, you know it is a problem for people.
In fact it is estimated that it costs the economy as much as $54 billion annually.
HB 2321 will expand the availability and convenience of buying alcohol across the state. More stores--in more places. This will also create more revenue for the state.
So the answer in the Colony for increased revenue and a "fix" for their problem, seems to be to get the subjects drunk and send them to the casino.
Yes We Can!
Yet when they are reaching to this depth for money, the left side of the Court doesn't blink when they tell you they don't know for sure how much their new expanded homosexual benefits plan will cost. And don't seem to care as they rush to pass it. Amounts of $5, $6, $8 million have been discussed. Who knows?
This kind of thinking throughout the Kingdom is beyond ignorance---it is a cult of denial.
I have used a little humor to mask my own tears of concern.
The idea that we can sit back and everything will be alright is as far off the mark as those who have abandoned ancient principles and any moral compass other than relativism, believing they can spend their way out of a financial crises and make things better by selling more alcohol and expanding gambling.
America is being pushed away from free market capitalism toward a European style socialism. Our present financial crises is seen as a huge opportunity by the Obama administration and others who envision a very different America. They call it "change". And they are exploiting the opportunity.
They are bankrupting the country, while their followers are pushing the state toward the edge. All this, while re-ordering our culture, re-engineering the family, redefining marriage and reducing the sanctity of life, at beginning and end of life to a mere choice on any given day depending on how they feel.
It is time for good people to take back their communities and their country.
Thank you for standing with us.
God help us.
