STOP free enterprise!

Lemonade stand shut down because she failed to get the $120 in permits.

SHE’S SEVEN (7)!! And it’s a temporary restaurant license. PLEASE!

I told you “common sense” is no longer common in government.

The girl went out of her way to do a better job in keeping her table, cups, and lemonade cleaner than the hot dog stand I eat at.

The Huffington post has a different take. They feel there were safety issues because of the intersection she was set up in. However, this was not part of the original issue.

Freedom… Really?

Will flogging be brought back?

Are our freedoms in danger of being taken away? Really?

With some of the ways the current administration is doing business we are being forced to do things that just don’t make sense?

What was the intent of our founding fathers?

Freedom of Speech.

What was the intent of our founding fathers?
Why can’t I use foul language on TV? It is freedom of speech, right?
Should high school students be allowed to write illegal immigration or pro-Prop 8 articles for a school newspaper?
Does the first amendment really cover campaign contributions?
Do “Hate Crime Laws” conflict with the first amendment?
If I speak out against a religious group in a way that may violate the hate crimes laws, does it not also go against my freedom of speech.
Freedom of Religion.
Freedom FROM or OF?
Who decides what’s considered religious?
When it has a hint of Judeo/Christian tradition is it religious?
If it has Islamic or Buddhist traditions is its not?
Did religion play a part in the founding of our nation?
Is Prop 8 PURE freedom or religious?

Marriage is a religious ceremony with traditions that are rooted in the Bible LONG before there were states. How does that weigh in?

American Paycheck for Terroist!

Fort Hood gunman, is still getting paychecks from the military – and I can prove there is a God.

Bank of America has informed him that he is no longer welcome at the Bank.

HOWEVER… in another crazy twist, Military financial advisors are helping him to find a bank! Thank God another dozen banks have turned him down!

Doesn’t this just frost you?

And his attorney is saying his client is being treated unfairly.

What about the people he ambushed and KILLED!

I guess they got fair treatment.

SERIOUSLY!?!

Illegal Aliens – Final Thoughts

After 2 hours of listening to many guests that are in the middle of it, I hear 2 messages:

1. There should be an easy and equitable way to enter into this country. There should be a way that the ones here should be able to prove they are a value to our society and stay. We can’t just ignore the kids that were brought here, educated here, grew up here and would not know how to move back into the culture of the country of their parents’ origin.

2. We just can’t afford it. The financial strain on our economy is enormous. There are American men and women that will do the work the illegals are doing.

I think we all need to get real and stop talking out of both sides of our mouths.

Advocates: Stop telling us that “They pay taxes to”, because they don’t! They pay a small part of sales tax and other taxes that are directly associated with “sales tax” but no contribution to State and Federal payroll taxes. They are a strain on our health and education system. Just stop trying to put a dress on a pig and we might be willing to help.

There is no real EQUITY among American born and illegals. Right now illegals have the edge.

Against it:  Business owners, STOP talking out of both sides of your mouth. If you hire an illegal worker, you deserve everything that comes from it. Raids on your establishment, fines and so on… and maybe it’s worth it to you.

Stop saying send them all home! We can’t. It would be a nightmare. Homeowners, do you really think it’s fine for your gardener, housekeeper, or handyman to be illegal and then get mad at the legislators for not closing the border?  HHHmmmm!

We need to stop pointing fingers, have some real honest dialogue, and work toward a solution.

Maybe we have no guest worker program until unemployment is below 5%.

Maybe if your on welfare you have to put in some work hours every week for the state or local government.

I don’t have the answers, but there out there.

AND, illegal is illegal! 

RACISM

I felt the wrath of the so called “White Anglo Saxon American”. I was told I should not be dating their women and that I was a “Grease Ball”, “WOP” let’s not forget “Dumb Dago” …

The names weren’t the big deal. It was not understanding that what they were saying about me I couldn’t change!

So, does racism exist today? NO really! Like it’s always pushed out at us. If I think someone should get paid less money and he or she happens to be black or Hispanic, why is that RACISM!?

How about, I just think he or she isn’t worth more money!

Why is there ALWAYS a perceived ulterior motive?
Now, we start off thinking the worst instead of the best.
This makes no sense and we will not be able to move forward this way.

So, we are going to take a look at racism… REAL racism… from the people that are hit the hardest with it…

Tune in… Don’t miss out!!! Join in the conversation.

Politics in the SCV

Let’s focus on Local, State and National politics as we speak with Scott Wilk (R), member of Republican 38th Central Committee and Mike Cruz (D), member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee. Both are plugged into their respective parties and will give us the local take on the issues.

Can we keep spending the way we are?
 
Do the Democrats even have a voice in local politics?
Do the Republicans REALLY run the Santa Clarita Valley?

Have we lost or gained jobs here in the SCV?

Are the White House policies really working for us in our little town?
How does Santa Clarita play into County and State politics?
Call in, Tune in Listen Live!

Undocumented, Illegal, Unannounced Workers !!!

People, lets get a handle on this! Simply put, they broke the law, they are “illegal”. Calling them undocumented workers is like me calling myself an “undocumented driver” when I get pulled over and don’t have a drivers license.

Let’s make sure we understand that we are talking about… ALL NATIONALITIES here… illegal is illegal!

Illegal Immigration… Undocumented Workers… Undocumented Americans…

I have heard it all from — “all we want to do is work” to “we are humans too!”

Illegal immigration costs this state over $15 billion a year in direct costs!
Imagine what that costs the country!!
Is the administration doing what it can to stop illegal immigration??

Join me, City Councilman Bob Kellar, Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, and, schedule permitting, we may even hear from Sheriff Lee Baca! Hart School Board President Paul Strickland. We’ll also be joined by 2 immigration attorneys and Angelica Salas, Executive Director from CHIRLA (Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles).

Family Values – Final thoughts

To start with, I received many emails in response to the original email information blast calling me a biggot and closed-minded. I would suggest the closed-minded are the ones that sent me the emails!

If you listened to the show, I was looking for input. I was HONESTLY looking for both sides of the issue. If you speak with Donald Goodman the counselor I had on, (who was PRO – same-sex marriage and the raising of children in those types of relationships) he would agree it was a VERY level and fair conversation.

My point that divorces are on the rise, that children from single parent households tend to have more issues is a true statement!

Now, the so-called experts say there will be no ill effect from same sex family units. There has been no long term studies to prove that position. Therefore the blanket statement cannot be made with certainty.

BOTH experts agreed that kids need a 2-parent loving environment to thrive in and have a better chance of surviving life’s issues when they have a 2-parent loving environment

BOTH agreed that the best environment for a child to grow up in is…
The 2 biological parents being in the house on one accord and in solidarity in the raising of the children.

Take it up with them!

6 Yr-Old on Government No Fly List!

 A 6-year old little girl is on the no fly list.

A 6-year old little girl is on the no fly list.  Look at her picture. She sure looks “scary” (NOT).  I don’t know if this is the kind of ridiculous stuff you want for your show, but it sure hacks me off that we can’t find the 10 guys that went AWOL from IRAQ, but we have time to put this girl on the no fly list.
 
BTW they ARE still letting her fly but they didn’t remove her name.  I think it’s outrageous for 2 reasons.
#1 How can ANYONE be allowed to fly if they are on the no-fly list?
#2 Why don’t they take her off the list?
Here’s a quote from her dad: “She may have threatened her sister, but I don’t think that constitutes Homeland Security triggers,” said Dr. Thomas.    (Submitted by Alice)   Read More!

Proposed Kindergarten Sex Ed

…and it doesn’t stop there.
Positions, yes, positions. What cavities can be penetrated, and so on.

Disgusted?! Then stop reading and so something!!

We have gone over the top. Schools should not be teaching our kids moral and social values.
Those should be left for parents and ONLY parents!.

Better Pay Attention!  (sent in by Alice)

8 Yr-Old boy suspended for wearing a hat.

Rhode Island boy suspended for wearing Patriotic hat.

I believe we have gone over the top with being “politically correct” or “non-tollerence”
This is an 8 year old boy that simply wants to honor the troops with 2 inch toy soldiers glued onto his hat! Am I missing something here??

The school has a no tolerance weapons ban. Unless this child had intent to shove these plastic soldier down someone’s throat, then how could they be considered weapons??

He violated the weapons ban! HHHmmmm….
Help me understand.

You Can’t Pray Here?!?

A group of Christian students was allegedly ordered to stop praying outside the U.S. Supreme Court building on May 5 because a court police officer told them it was against the law. (SERIOUSLY!?!)

The students were part of a junior high school American History class at Wickenburg Christian Academy in Arizona. After taking pictures on the steps of the Supreme Court building, their teacher gathered them to a side location where they formed a circle and began to pray.

According to Nate Kellum, senior counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund, a police officer “abruptly” interrupted the prayer and ordered the group to cease and desist.

“They were told to stop praying because they were violating the law and they had to take their prayer elsewhere,” Kellum told FOX News Radio.

A spokesperson for the Court said the Marshal of the Court will look into the events alleged by the ADF.

“The Court does not have a policy prohibiting prayer,” said public information officer Kathy Arberg in an email to FOX News Radio.

So the group of 15 students and seven adults left the Supreme Court and relocated to a sidewalk – where Rigo said the children stood in a gutter – and continued their prayer.

Family Values

We need to really be paying attention to the “Family Unit”.

The family unit has been fragile for years. The traditional family that we grew up with has been under scrutiny
since the 60’s. Remember free love, free sex, no war, No Commitments? Remember?

I remember growing up and hearing “Kids are so resilient”. I believe that was wrong and that we are reaping the benefits
of giving in to that thought process. Divorces are still on the rise. Single parent families occur at an alarming rate.

Children from single parent homes often have MANY more issues adjusting and getting along than those coming from
a “Traditional Family”.

Now we are going to introduce gay and lesbian marriages into the mix? Are we in for even more trouble… Maybe?

Patriotism – Final thoughts

Today we found out that Patriotism might mean many things to many people. The common thread was, Love of Country. Most people express it in many ways, Flag waiving, Special observances during the year, BBQ’s and so on.

I was not here on the 5th, if you tuned in I was home relaxing with my wife.
Thanks to the Patriots who went before me and made that possible…
With that in mind, today’s show was about PATRIOTISM. What is it? Why is it important?
Is it important enough to die for?
Today we use the word Patriotism like we use the word and meaning of Christmas.
There is a true meaning of Christmas that over the years has been allowed to be eroded and forgotten.
It’s gone from a time of giving of one self, of remembering the importance of family, for Christians remembering Christ’s birth… to TODAY… how much can my budget bear… how do I make sure I don’t tick off any of my relatives or friends.. VERY different meaning.
The true meaning of patriotism has also eroded… (in my opinion…)
Were our Founding Fathers patriots? What did they give up for their PATRIOTISM??
Would America be a different place today if the founding fathers considered patriotism unimportant?
Today patriotism has taken on a meaning of Parades, BBQ’s, days off w/pay.
Wave flags, BUT DON’T INSULT ANYONE! Don’t push your brand of Americanism on anyone.
I think the Tea Partiers have re-sparked Patriotism.
They get out and get involved… (as do many NON tea partiers)
We need to get out and get involved.

Anti-4th of July?

Why I Don’t Celebrate July 4

By Matthew Rothschild, July 3, 2010

It’s July 4th, my least favorite holiday. And I’m not referring to the bugs, or the crowds, or the traffic on the highways.
I’m talking about the mindless patriotic bubble bath we’re all supposed to soak in all weekend long.

Well, not me.

My heart does not beat faster at the strains of the Star Spangled Banner, much less at the sight of F-16s flying overhead to kick off the show.
You see, I don’t believe in patriotism. You can call me unpatriotic if you’d like, but really I’m anti-patriotic. I’ve been studying fascism lately, and there is one inescapable fact about it: Nationalism is the egg that hatches fascism. And patriotism is but the father of nationalism.

Patriotism is not something to play with. It’s highly toxic. When ingested, it corrodes the rational faculties. It gulls people into believing their leaders. It masks those who benefit most from state policy.And it destroys the ability of people to get together, within the United States and across boundaries, to take on those with the most power: the multinational corporation.

Plus, it’s a war toy, wheeled out whenever a leader needs to improve his ratings by attacking some other country—often after invoking God’s name, too. It’s been so since the Spanish-American War and World War I and right up through the Iraq War and the Afghanistan War.

American patriotism has also gotten in the way of solving global warming. Many in the United States, which consumes 25 percent of the world’s resources but has just 4 percent of the world’s population, believe we have the God-given right to use up all the resources we can. And there is an all-too-common attitude that we don’t need to listen to any other countries, or the U.N., or obey any international agreements because we’re Americans, and we’re better than everybody else.

We’ve got to get over patriotism, and we’ve got to cure the American superiority complex. So celebrate the 4th if you like.

But as for me, between God, country, and apple pie, I’ll take the apple pie.

Patriotism

What is a Patriot? One who fights for the country or one who takes advantage of the freedoms enjoyed by the country they live in?
Is it the guy who salutes when the flag goes by, or says the Pledge of Allegiance out loud and proudly when the colors are presented? Is it the person who runs to catch the flag before it hits the ground? How about the person who refuses to get up during a flag salute?The person who won’t enlist in the army? We need to define these.

Let’s look at a site I found on Anti-Patriotism:

Anti-patriotism

I’ve always been against patriotism.  I remember in elementary school arguing with my teacher about it.  She said “America is the best country in the world.”  I then questioned her on what criteria was used.  I knew internally that the only reason she felt it was the best is because she was born here.  

As I grew up, I read the works of great anti-patriots, like Emma Goldman and Leo Tolstoy.  Their words expressed my feelings.  I think Tolstoy summed up the evils of patriotism best:

 In the schools, they kindle patriotism in the children by means of histories describing their own people as the best of all peoples and always in the right. Among adults they kindle it by spectacles, jubilees, monuments, and by a lying patriotic press. Above all, they inflame patriotism in this way: perpetrating every kind of harshness and injustice against other nations, they provoke in them enmity towards their own people, and then in turn exploit that enmity to embitter their people against the foreigner.

Here are a few of my favorite anti-patriotism quotes. 

Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels. 
– Samuel Johnson 

Patriotism is the willingness to kill and be killed for trivial reasons. 
– Bertrand Russell

Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it 
– George Bernard Shaw

Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious
– Oscar Wilde 

Patriotism is a pernicious, psychopathic form of idiocy.
– George Bernard Shaw

You will never have a quiet world until you knock the patriotism out of the human race.
-George Bernard Shaw

“My country, right or wrong,” is a thing that no patriot would think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying, “My mother, drunk or sober.”
 G. K. Chesterton

Patriotism in its simplest, clearest, and most indubitable signification is nothing else but a means of obtaining for the rulers their ambitions and covetous desires, and for the ruled the abdication of human dignity, reason, and conscience, and a slavish enthralment to those in power.
– Leo Tolstoy

The time is fast approaching when to call a man a patriot will be the deepest insult you can of him. Patriotism now means advocating plunder in the interest of the privileged classes of the particular State system into which we have happened to be born.
– Leo Tolstoy

I remember reading Tolstoy’s words that “to call a man a patriot will be the deepest insult you can of him.”  I’m still waiting for that day.

 

Really ???? So Love of Country is Bad?
