Organanizing For America Using Saul Alinsky's Rules For Radicals
One of Pamela Geller's readers sent her an astounding document: a high school application for employment at Barack Obama's personal political wing: Organizing for America (OFA).

Students at Perry High School in Masillon Ohio appear to be among the recruiting targets of OFA. Included on the 20-page application is a recommended reading list that includes the most radical propaganda literature imaginable. Prominent on the list: Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, which is a step-by-step guide to the violent overthrow of the United States government.
"Radicals precipitate the social crisis by action – by using power… The Radical recognizes that constant dissension and conflict is and has been the fire under the boiler of democracy. He firmly believes in that brave saying of a brave people, 'Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees!'" -- Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

"The Radical may resort to the sword but when he does he is not filled with hatred against those individuals whom he attacks. He hates these individuals not as persons but as symbols representing ideas or interests which he believes to be inimical to the welfare of the people… That is the reason why Radicals, although frequently embarking upon revolutions, have rarely resorted to personal terrorism." -- Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals
It would seem that once one is in the habit of bowing to one's superiors in the Middle East, the habit becomes so ingrained that one would then bow to a mere city Mayor - this time in Tampa: What on earth is he doing?
Regarding Obama's declaration of his Budget deficit, know this. In order to keep the deficit from soaring even higher, he has used money coming in from a bill which may never pass to help pay for his agenda: Cap and Trade. Also, he has said that Bush increased the deficit by an amount far larger than he did, and in truth, Obama in one year has increased the deficit by three times what Bush and the Democrat-controlled Congress did - with then Senator Barack Obama voting for all raises in spending with which he was presented......
In speaking of his budget, President Obama said:

"In order to meet this challenge, I welcome any idea, from Democrats and Republicans ... It's time to hold Washington to the same standards families and businesses hold themselves. It's time to save what we can [nothing], spend what we must [well, everything IS a crisis], and live within our means once again [only after he spends ever more during this year, for he must wait for the elections in November to begin the hurtful cuts]."

The Wall Street Journal reports that "it [Obama's budget] would almost double the national debt in just four years from 2008, to $11.5 trillion in 2012. That is more than the entire accumulated national debt for the first 225 years of U.S. history." [THEN we will really have to get serious......]
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [It's "empty suit" time once again]: President Obama has written a letter of apology to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid regarding comments made Tuesday about trips to Las Vegas.

In his letter, the president called Las Vegas "one of our country's great destinations". [And, Mr. President, it should be pointed out to you that there is far more to do there than just gamble.]

During the president's town hall meeting in Nashua, New Hampshire, he discussed the need to curb spending during tough economic times. "When times are tough, you tighten your belts," the president said. "You don't go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage. You don't blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you're trying to save for college." [Mr. President, perhaps it is time that you and your wife demonstrate to us how committed you are personally to that goal. It is our money you are spending, both in your federal budget and in your personal expenditures on the taxpayers' dime - such as $450 room service lunches for 2, a staff for your wife of 21 when most First Ladies have had 2 to 6.]

Indeed, his budget would almost double the national debt in just four years from 2008, to $11.5 trillion in 2012. As the Wall Street Journal reported last week, "That is more than the entire accumulated national debt for the first 225 years of U.S. history."


Meanwhile, using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, Judicial Watch reports: "there thousands of pages of travel documents related to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of military aircraft.

What hasn’t been revealed so far is that military aircraft are being used to shuttle Pelosi’s kids and grandkids between DC and San Francisco without any Congressional representatives even onboard! Put simply, the United States Air Force is serving as a multi-billion dollar chauffeur- and baby-sitting service for Nancy Pelosi’s kids and grandkids — presumably because commercial travel is beneath the families of the autocrats".


AP reports: The Air Force Academy has set aside an outdoor worship area for Pagans, Wiccans, Druids and other Earth-centered believers, school officials said Monday.

A double circle of stones atop a hill on the campus near Colorado Springs has been designated for the group, which previously met indoors.


From the LA Times: Reporting from Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan - The U.S. Marines and Afghan army plan a massive assault on Taliban fighters in Marja, the last community under Taliban control in a sprawling, lawless region once dominated by the insurgency, a top Marine said Wednesday. "We are going to gain control," Col. George "Slam" Amland told reporters. "We are going to alter the ecosystem considerably."


Chris Matthews [again!]: "What's going on out there in the Republican Party is kind of a frightening, almost Cambodia re-education camp going on in that party, where they're going around to people, sort of switching their minds around saying, if you're not far right, you're not right enough". The survivors of the Khmer Rouge, a regime abetted by actions of the Left, would probably think that providing citizens with the truth is not nearly as bad as the killing of nearly 2 million people.....
The Richmond Times Dispatch reports: With five Democrats defecting, the Virginia Senate today passed a Republican measure that says Virginians don't have to buy health insurance. Voting 23-17, the Democratic-controlled Senate kicked to the House a bill by Sen. Frederick Quayle, R-Suffolk, that supporters say will send a message to Washington about its efforts to overhaul the health-care system. Quayle said the legislation is important, because it's a way of telling Congress that Virginians believe the federal government is overstepping its authority.

If Washington can mandate health insurance, Quayle said, it could also require Americans to buy domestic automobiles as a way to help that ailing industry.
