why do we need this prodding?

We The People Stimulus Package
This guy's video on YouTube has been so popular that Obama called him personally. He said that he was very disturbed with the video and invited him to the White House. Obama also said he wanted the White House to handle the Press and not to talk about the video or the White House visit.

That's interesting.

Watch it (AGAIN) now. This may be the best six minutes invested in your future You may have to turn your Sound Control up some.

Since it's now legal to carry on all US Parklands, and the White House is within US Park juridiction, can Mr. Paine carry when he visits Obama?

And think of the fun if 3 million pissed off people did show up on the Mall - packing. The mind boggles.

I mean this in the fun way.

You realize how much of this would be prevented with term limits alone?

It's time to form up. Get on your gear.

I can't believe that I have NOT seen this before.
Thank you for posting this.
Very well received on this end.

Wrong! The law says you can carry in national parks WHERE the STATE allows it. Since D.C. is anti-gun, you can't carry in it's environs. If only we could.

What's that bull about getting rid of the Electoral College? Given the ballot stuffing in big liberal cities, the electoral college is the only way be occasionally get a decent president. And given how divided this country, how will we ever get a super majority to amend the Constitution.

I find it difficult to take serious anyone whose program includes a constitutional amendment, particularly when that amendment would weaken the republic at the expense of a democracy given that half the voters pay no FIT.

Could tourists take guns into the White House?

Correct Laurence re: Electoral College. I'd add that there is no notion of "national service" in the Constitution. There is this thing called the "militia." Now if the feds required all males ages 17-45 to own their private M-16, ammo, mags, etc. and to show up for drill several times a year, I could live with that. That is what the founders did in 1792 with the Militia Act. None of this meals on wheels crap.

I view this gummint as being like war with Islam. It's real, and it's kill or be killed. Period.

I mean that in the academic sense, of course.

Nelson said...

I agree with Laurence's comment about the EC. It was important enough for the Founding Fathers to put it into the Constitution, so maybe there's a reason for that. My only other beef with this is that we are not a democracy, but a republic.

The Electoral College is a good thing. For one thing, like Laurance said, it limits the damage that a corrupt city could do to an election.
The big advantage is that it actually gives individual voters more power. See the article at "".

Uhbama the Illegal Immigrant (Piss be on Him) is not ready for Mr. Payne yet; he hasn't created his 250,000 man Brown Shirt thugs.

Ditto what y'all said on the Electoral College. It's part of being a Republic, not a Mobacracy.

And IMHO, the teabag in the envelope is a waste of good orange pekoe. All Congressional snail mail is opened at a facilty that checks for anthrax, bombs, etc and may be as long as three weeks after receipt getting to the addressee. Stuff like teabags gets pitched in the dumpster at the facility.
Otherwise, what he said, Oorah!!!

Thinking out loud, getting 200 peeps , nevermind hundreds of thousands of peeps to and from DC is a logistical nightmare, and the whole place is a security/permit/ Federal security organizations spiderweb and paperwork trap.
A demonstration, IMHO, would be much more effective if say, 5000 people, showed up at every elected representative's local office(s) when Congress is not in session and the rep is in his office. That lets folks far from DC participate easily, nobody has to sleep in the street if you don't want to, and more than likely the crowds' dealings would be with one local authority, not 50 Federal agencies.

This & other blog commentary on the current situation reads like a Monty Python skit.
You are so caught up in the minutia, arguing over every jot and tiddle we will all be dead and buried with the Neo-Neo-Nazi/Socialist Commie/Greens Party firmly entrenched in what was once America.
I didn't agree with everything the guy said either, BUT dang he has a plan and is acting on it himself.

WOW! "Tom Paine" said almost exactly what I wanted to but, did not have the verbal ability. The teabag thing while good intentioned will do nothing but waste good tea.

I can only hope this has some traction and really shakes em up. Of course I don't rely on our elected boobs to do anything constructive like what the f#%@ we tell them to do (or not do).

Boot them all the hell out and get some REAL PATRIOTS in office. I am so mad at the idiots (you know who you are) that voted these nimrods into office. I can honestly say I did not and have not voted for ANYBODY in federal office now. I guess I am just out of touch?
