Facebook “chat” this morning on McDonalds toys….
 
  • Original Post:
  • So this morning before school, my kids were watching TV while we got ready and there it was… A McDonald’s commercial announcing the newest toy (a bakugan). My boys are very into that Bakugan stuff and then it came… “moooommm, can we go to McDonald’s today?” I want that toy. I said, wait for it, wait for it. “NO”.
  • Friend #2  I can’t even remember the last time I took my kids to McDonalds.
  • Original Poster :Well, with all that hype about suing MD over kids’ obesity is just rediculous! We are fat because of the food we put in our mouths not because of the food people sell.
  • Friend #2 :Take responsibility for what you eat and do??? Too hard, easier to just blame others for “my” stupidity. Everyone demands choice and then blame others when they choose wrong.
  • Original Poster:  That’s right. The government will continue to dip into our freedoms because we can’t take responsibility for ourselves and the rest of us will have to fight to keep our civil liberties.
  • Jessi Bradshaw : you know, i don’t have a problem with the toy except that the cost of the meal to get the toy is not worth it. I get more food by not getting the toy…so my response is.. “are you eating the toy or the food?”. That usually gets them. Plus… those toy are so generic.
    Anyway….I will spare your page my rant on the “political” side of the issue, Merry Christmas! 🙂 😉
  • Friend #2:  Wow, when you think about it they have covered it all, from health insurance down to plastic free toys! I’m sorry, but I would rather hear about other issues like hmm, jobs, the war on terror, national debt, national security…plastic toys? Whats next? Are they going to dictate what toilet paper I ….
  • Jessi Bradshaw : ok, i promise not to go into a full on rant. Mary, you are absolutely right-they are coving the bases but there is more. my issue, in plain words is this, i agree with both of you and most of this population, that ppl should choose and are …directly responsible for what they CHOOSE to put in their mouths. If it makes one fat, then one has the responsibility to either stop or exercise.
    But more importantly than the obesity factor, and i think its where “original poster” mentions “civil liberties”…
    Lets look at it this way. the FED(local, state,whatever) GOVT feels they can go INTO a PRIVATE business to DICTATE what that biz can or cant do. Thereof, affecting the consumer choice. Again, a PRIVATE biz. (in this case, no toys, hooters is next on the too do list, if u havent heard)
    (slowly but surely) Recently, DHS decides that it is now time to enter into Walmart(private biz) and start preaching from the tv monitors on what we should or should not be on the “look out” for? Wait a minute, i am at a private biz, shopping for my PERSONAL needs but DHS can start preaching to me? Does this not infuriate people? When should we expect these govt messages at the movie theaters, restaurants, amusement parks?
    So if that isn’t creepy enough.Lets look at the hypocritical. I obesity is a national security issue. Then why is intoxication not one? Why is the FED govt NOT going into bars and nightclubs enforcing sobriety “laws” or anti-smoking laws? Why are they hell bent on legislating for the kids?
 

Now, why is this not JUST about McDonalds “toys”.

From the  San Bruno Patch:  “The NOW chapter filed a complaint (today) Thursday with the San Bruno Police Department accusing the Hooters restaurant here, along with several others in the state, of exposing minors to sexual entertainment and that the restaurant should be forced to comply with local adult entertainment regulations.”

For those who are geographically challenged… San Bruno, CA is minutes away from Market Street… the site of the famous San Fransico Pride Celebration Parade (aka: Gay Parade)

View Larger Map

map of South San Fran.

Minutes away!

So let’s think RATIONALLY about this.
1. Liberal organizations (yes, the current govt is a liberal organization)are hell bent on making sure those pesky toys contributing to a national security emergency be removed from “Happy Meals”! Enter Big Brother into private business establishment to dictate what is acceptable or not.

2. NWO files complaint stating that Hooters contributes to exposure of “sexual entertainment” to minors.

3. We are MINUTES FROM THE CASTRO, SITE OF THE FAMOUS GAY PARADE WHERE countless gay men and women parade in the BUFF in front of minors every year!!! (I lived in the Bay Area, believe me I’ve been sickened first hand).

“Funny story”, our first day in San Jose, clueless, we happened to turn on the tv precicely at the moment a 70 year old man flashed the camera with his wrinkled jewels. Yeah, we didn’t know the parade was being broadcast on network t.v. semi-uncensored…

Back to the story…. Look at the pics below…they are not doctored and they are some of the more tame ones.

Gay dudes who work out and don't eat at McDonald's because fries are too fatty.

Eyes Burn....Yeah, no exposure to overt sexuality at this parade. Idiot "parents"!

 

Yeah, no exposure to overt sexuality at this parade. Idiot "parents"!

 

At what point is the liberal agenda going to look at itself and it own OVERT HYPOCRICY? Never, so get used to it. 

It is time to start thinking big picture. No need to blame McDonalds for our fat butts. McDonald’s is only a small problem of our obesity “issue”.. or shall we forget that back in the 80’s it was the FDA that declared HYDROGENATED OILS supperior to palm based and animal based oils only to do an about face 20 years later? McDonalds complied and we got fatter fries.
So back to “enter big big brother”… They barge into McDonalds for a third time, tell them to remove toys….blah blah.
Enter NOW, ready to file complaints with Hooters while only minutes away June next year, the NOW wont be thinking about the welfare of minors and their over exposure to sexuality.

So what does this have to to with McDonalds toys?

1. Allow the targeting of ONE private restaurant (McDonald’s)… you allow the targeting of other private restaurants for other BOGUS reasons(Hooters).
 
2. Target private restaurants, you allow the targeting of OTHER PRIVATE establishments for BOGUS reasons. (Who’s Next? Coffee Shops, Movie Theaters?)
 
3. Once targeting any and all PRIVATE business becomes the norm…..the door is open and there is no such thing as “REAL PRIVATE BUSINESS”….. (what are we calling that now days? National Socialism?)
 
(For now the DHS and Walmart are “collaborating” in this “joint effort” ..but maybe eventually they will have more to say…maybe dictate the toilet paper isle.)
 
I hope you get the picture.
Now go wash your mind’s eye and stare at some Thomas Kinkade for a few minutes.

Dec 14, 2010. The place Panama City, Florida – school board meeting. Enter: Clay Duke , 56. Husband, and “gentle giant”, aggravated stalker, previous gunman, and depressed individual. Fired 14 rounds at school board members, was shot and then shot himself.

Angry at his wife’s firing from her job, he went to avenge her.  Now the world was rid of a psychopath but ended up with an unemployed widow. Either way we we are screwed and more importantly so is his wife.

On a more serious note, feel free to watch the video, the more graphic part is not at the end of this video you have to play part 2.

I would like to do a play by play just to make a point. As you watch, notice how people just ran out of that room scared out of their wits and as fast as they could because of one “idiot’s” possession of a gun. Scary for sure!

> At :21 seconds Clay spray paints the “V for Vendeta” on wall as people STARE.

> At :30 seconds these people who came to listen to the school board meeting, after having been granted permission by Clay, either engage in fight or engage in flight… mostly flight with some freezing and definitely some begging.

> At 1:00 Ginger Littleton comes bravely at Duke with her PURSE but seems to faint after her attempt fails. Notice everyone else that didn’t leave is still in FREEZE mode.

> At 3:29 the school safety officer, Mike Jones, arrives but refrains from causing any more panic(thankfully). Hooray! No Mall Cop Tactics!

> At 5:57 Clay fires.

Part 2:

News Report (extra)

Should we feel sympathy towards Clay Duke because of his depression, the effects of a failing economy on his family, his lack of healthcare benefits? I don’t really want to argue what you think you should feel.

What I will say is that what I noticed here was the way these people reacted when they were allowed to leave. They probably felt they made it out alive by the skin of their teeth and the last bit of mercy or sanity Clay Duke happened to muster to allow them all to go. (that was a mouthful) You get my point.

Think about it, this guy is dead, partly because a (nice guy) security guard was hanging around just keeping an eye open and a finger on the trigger.  Yeah,he happened to have a gun on him – thank God! (yes, I said, “GOD”)

So lets put it this way again, the current Federal Government would like to do away with the fifth amendment(did I say fifth? Wait that is another abuse of power amendment, I MEANT 2nd!) Back to my point, do away with guns because potentially there are enough psychopaths out there who could be pointing those guns at us and we need to make sure they cannot become armed. Yeah. That’s it!

Imagine that! Yes, the idea that only police officers or the government(employees) be the ones allowed to carrying guns puts me at ease.

No, it actually it should scare you to death. Just like Clay Duke scared those people and had them at HIS MERCY, yes, the government can do that to you too when it is only they with the power to carry a gun. 

Luckily we will have our purses and man-bags to defend ourselves.

"Once we know that people are human and have some Homer Simpson in them, then there's a lot that can be done to manipulate them." -- Cass Sunstein

The Transportation Department is looking into technology to disable cell phones in vehicles, according to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

There’s a lot of technology out there that can disable phones and we’re looking at that,” LaHood said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” 

“A number of those people came to our distracted driving meeting here in Washington and that’s one way,” he said.

LaHood seemed to suggest that this technology has a good chance of making its way into cars.

I think it will be done,” he said.

Wireless companies see signal scrambling technology as a blunt instrument in the fight against distracted driving, pointing out that cell phones are just one distraction in the car. 

UPDATE: DoT spokeswoman Olivia Alair confirmed that the department is examining this technology. She added that the department has “no intention” at this point to require it. She pointed to a statement from LaHood that said his campaign has focused on “raising awareness, getting good laws on the books, stepping up enforcement, and most importantly, taking personal responsibility.”

 

In other words, people are too stupid (enter Homer Simpson) to learn how to be “responsible” drivers.  Because of our Homer Simpsonesque qualities, not only will our diets be monitored(exit salt), we will also have the cell phone companies, city governments, state governments and the Big Brother disabling our cell phones when we are in our vehicles.

So supposing Homer Simpson gets into a legitimate accident….he may have to rely on the other Homer Simpson walking down the street to actually call 911.

Oh no wait, one of the  CCTVs (closed circuit TV) will just catch the accident on tape.

O.K. never mind that! 

On a different note, so the Wireless Companies are the ones looking into signal scrambling technology?  Who should we blame? Perhaps the “wireless companies are the ones looking INTO the scrambling technology”…..right….right…..*wink wink*

No coercion here…no, nothing to see here. Just move right along and let the “private sector” take care of it.

Right.

Gothcha.

*wink wink*

IF you think these vending machines are “pretty cool”, you deserve to be controlled. Too bad we have to be controlled WITH you. Heck, I rarely want a candybar bad enough to pay more than I would pay at Wal-Mart for a pack of 6 of the same.

Unless you are diabetic…but then again, why not carry one around on you if that is the case than pay $1.25 for one?  Anyway.

1. Tie your credit card to your retina and fingerprint.

2. With Obamacare, you may just be too fat to eat that candybar.

3. The Fed controlls your bank account in’s and out’s.

4. ______________________ <– Fill in the blank.

We still have rights as States so we must fight as States…..that is our next step.

What do we do now?

1. call your attny general’s office and ask

  • what is the attnys plan AGAINST this HC bill?
  • will it be a lawsuit or a constitutinal amendment?
  • if it is a lawsuit: when will it be filed?
  • if it is an amendment: when is the legislature in session to start moving it forward?

2. call your Governor’s office

  • leave him your comments
  • tell him you want somehing to happen via AG or Legsistation

3. call your legislator and all other legislators

  • inform that you do not want this heavy handed instrusion of the FED govt witin the state
    They must respect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights….you have the 10th amendment and they must respect it!

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Do not call once, call often. Let them know that we are watching our states too! Stay on top of what is happening and post it on your FB or Twitter….let us know what you find out.


Remeber, we are not looking to turn a system upside down!!! 
We want coverage for those that need it, but we do not need

1. the FED dictating us at the state level or taking OUR hard earned money to then divy it out.
2. we did not want this intrusion which was clearly gained by corruption methods and arm twisting.
3. payoffs and bribes affect our states and the benefits….we will not pay our money to pay off the districts that took the bribes.
4. their bribes add to the deficit and we will be paying higher taxes to cover these bribes, before it even gets to this new “entitlement” coffer
If you are a person of Faith, please continue to pray…..for strength, faith, and guidance.

Continue the fight!

List of all attn generals

 http://www.americanvoice.com/attorneypoliticians.aspx

 International Christian Concern (ICC) is reporting that a major effort is underway by Muslim countries (OIC) Organisation of the Islamic Conference)  to pass a UN resolution which they say would lead to persecution of Christian minorities.

At what point do countries REFUSE to submit to these WORLD Regulations?  I don’t know about other countries, but it seems to me that many citizens of the United States of America, including some of those that have thru illegal means arrived to our great nation have what I would like to describe as the independent gene: the innate desire to succeed and LIVE with little to no involvement from the government. 

Americans, usually characterized as hard-working, independent, self-sufficient, fighting, determined,  and just (to name a few) are having these personal beliefs and ways of thinking challenged not only by a federal government but apparently now also a  global arm –  of the totalitarian kind.

Certainly, as we add generations to the population rolls, I my guess is that for every singular, lazy, socialistic, government dependant person added, human nature counters that by ADDING and nurturing a hard working, entrepreneurial, capitalistic, self-sufficient American – whether he be of recently immigrant parents or from the more established type.  (Perhaps this is wishful thinking on my part)

Anyway, I digress, yet again.

My experience is that, among the people I know. Libertarian, Conservatives, Democrats, Republicans, Independents or Moderates….if American…the same ideals really truly apply.  The basic “American” ideals of  “working, independent, self-sufficient, fighting, determined” still apply.  YES, REALLY.

Notice I didn’t mention the Socialist Democrats or Communists (hell-bent on CHANGING the American philosophy).

Many times, political beliefs have very little to do with the innate feelings of the individual. Thru my observation, I have found that if worded in a way that can be understood – most groups will respond in similarly to the question.

Example: Ask someone…

Do  you believe all Americans are entitled to affordable health care?

Vs

Do you believe all Americans should have affordable health care at the cost of a smaller group of individuals?

Point being, if you ask any person(regardless of political affiliation)- in this particular case, 

DO you believe and support the idea that a smaller group, thru a global governing body, should override our American Constitution to the detriment of what Americans are allowed to say in their own backyard? 

My guess is the reply you will get across the board, from any political group (except the Socialist/Communist) is a resounding NO. 

Which brings me back to my original question.

At what point do [Americans] REFUSE to submit to these WORLD Regulations?  World regulations that at the root, not only silence our voices in our own back yard but spill over to how we might offend our neighbor ½ way across the globe or in our own neighborhood.

Regardless of what good you think the UN does . The fact of the matter is that the global heavy hand is looking to take OUR Constitution and render it useless.  A Constitution not only gave us freedom of religion, but freedom to express ourselves about things secular and religious – so long as in that process we were not harming or infringing on those opinions or religions.

This treaty/resolution intends to buffer a group from possible criticism from the rest of the world population.  Do I care or think that it is fair that citizens of the world be silenced?  Yes, but not so much that I want OUR countsubmitted to that kind of censorship.  Why?  Simply, because our AMERICA is held to a higher standard by way of  The Constitution.

Innately, most Americans carry the independent gene, preventing them from going along with something so controlling and sinister?  No?  At the very least on a “global” level? 

Perhaps this proposed U.N. resolution on the “defamation of religions” will stall and not move forward. We however, must all be cautious as the seeds are out there, looking for fertile ground to root and sprout themselves.  Sinister, indeed. Without fear-mongering, beware when our country submits to a global governing will -now or ever.

From a Fox News article (link )

Critics give some recent news events as examples of how the U.N. “blasphemy resolution” has emboldened Islamic authorities and threatened Westerners:

— On Oct. 3 in Great Britain, three men were charged for plotting to kill the publisher of the novel “The Jewel of Medina,” which gives a fictional account of the Prophet Muhammad and his child bride. FOXNews.com reported U.S. publisher Random House Inc., was going to release the book but stopped it from hitting shelves after it claimed that “credible and unrelated sources” said the book could incite violence by a “small, radical segment.”

— An Afghan student is on death row for downloading an article about the role of women in Islam, FOXNews.com also reported.

— In December 2007 “a court reportedly sentenced two foreigners to six months in prison for allegedly marketing a book deemed offensive to Aisha, one of the Prophet Muhammad’s wives,” the U.S. government said.

— A British teacher was sentenced to 15 days in jail in Sudan for offending Islam by allowing students to name the class teddy bear Muhammad in November 2007.

— In February 2007 in Egypt an Internet blogger was sentenced to four years in prison for writing a post that critiqued Islam.

— In 2004, Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh was murdered after the release of his documentary highlighting the abuse of Muslim women.

Update on this Resolution since Lou Dobbs Video.

Gladly Hillary makes a good point in this article. 

The US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, said atheists and believers were entitled to express their feelings about religion, and argued that “these differences should be met with tolerance, not with the suppression of discourse”.

Coming To A Street Corner Near You?

 

Aired on the heels of the Fort Hood Tragedy, I watched this video and admit I was expecting liberal MSM spin. However, I will admit I was impressed at the report.

Shocking revelation? Probably Not…I wonder if the citizens of NYC are slowing down enough to actually listen to the words being spouted by these “evil, self-declared hate mongers.”  Ok, so  evil and hate are MY words!  But self-declared mongers just doesn’t give the sentence the justice.

After watching the video, you have a few choices.

ONEBe proactive and spread the word to your #p2(blind liberal friends) or any friend for that matter…

TWO: Find a spot to stand, think about Obama (not Osama), Click your heals 3 times and quietly say : “There is no such thing as a RADICAL MUSLIM.  There is no such thing as a RADICAL MUSLIM. There is no such thing as a RADICAL MUSLIM.  Then take 2 asprin and call Obama in the morning.
