Chess & Taub Family Dentistry - For Dentist Phobs Like Me!


I had been a patient of Dr. Chess years ago but then left the area. I despise dentists almost as much as spiders...so of course...no dental pain - no new dentist when I moved.
Fast forward 5 years and a bad tooth later.
I had had a great experience at Chess & Taub BUT they are almost 40 minutes away from my house now. And I hate driving too (I swear, I do like most things though...) so I made an appointment with a dentist in Chalfont.
I liked the office staff (though they only had guy magazines in the waiting room!) and the hygienist was very nice but  the dentist made me feel like a big baby because I asked about nitrous oxide or anything they could give to help w/ anxiety. Then he told me I needed 4 teeth pulled. What??? He sent me to an oral surgeon (that they work with). The oral surgeon also said 4 teeth should come out. I was only having a problem with one, and when he showed me the xrays - I just didn't see why ALL 4 had to come out. I just had a gut feeling that something wasn't right.
Though they are far away - I decided it would be worth the trip to re-vist my old dentist and made an appointment with Dr. Chess and Taub to get a second opinion. 
They made me feel like party of the family as soon as I walked through the door. Ally (Allie?) my hygienist TOTALLY put me at ease and so did Dr. Chess. Dr. Chess is totally relaxed, and you know how you just get a gut feeling a person has the best intentions? That is Dr. Chess. He looked at my xrays and teeth and agreed that 2 teeth needed to be removed, but that the other 2 were very much salvageable. He didn't force the issue and maintained total professionalism and never came out and said that the other dentist was wrong - just that they could easily work with the teeth and it's better to keep your teeth as long as possible - but ultimately he  said the decision was up to me.
Yes, I admit I'm a baby when it comes to dental work, but Dr. Chess and Ally and the whole staff made me feel like it was no big deal.
It's totally worth the 40 minute drive for my peace of mind and they almost make dental work something to look forward to. I have another appointment this week and I'm not apprehensive at all - THAT IS A MIRACLE!!!
I can't recommend them enough.
I seldom go home and write a review within a few hours - but I wished there had been more dentist reviews when I was searching locally - so I'm hoping this helps someone.
Bottom line - I would highly HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chess (and the office staff is also totally friendly - rare to find great doctors and great office staff!).

Candy Cane Brownies


(
Candy Cane Brownies


Ingredients
Crust:
20 chocolate wafer cookies (or Oreos or whatever your favorite flavor hard chocolate cookie)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely ground coffee (or not!)

Filling:
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
                                                                                     8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
                                                                                     2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
2 large eggs, at room temperature
Glaze:
4 ounces dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons  butter
1 teaspoon light or dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons sour cream, at room temperature
1/2 cup crushed candy canes

Directions
For the crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 inch square pan.

Process the chocolate wafers in a food processor with the butter, sugar, coffee, until fine. Evenly press the crust into the prepared dish, covering  bottom completely. Bake until the crust sets, about 15 minutes.

For the filling: Meanwhile, heat the chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl at 75-percent power until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir, and continue to heat until completely melted, up to 2 minutes more. (Alternatively, put the chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Bring a saucepan filled with an inch or so of water to a very slow simmer; set the bowl over, but not touching, the water, and stir occasionally until melted and smooth.)

Blend the cream cheese, sugar and sour cream together in the food processor until smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed. Add the eggs and pulse until just incorporated. With the food processor running, pour the chocolate into the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.

Pour the filling evenly over the crust. Bake until the filling puffs slightly around the edges but is still a bit wobbly in the center, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on a rack.

For the glaze: Put the chocolate, butter and corn syrup in a microwave-safe bowl and heat at 75-percent power until melted, about 2 minutes. Stir the ingredients together until smooth; add the sour cream. Spread the glaze evenly over the warm cake and scatter the crushed candy canes over top. Cool completely, and then refrigerate overnight.

Cut into small bars or squares. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Store the bars covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Cook's Note: To crush the candy canes, remove the wrappers and place in a resealable plastic bag. Use a rolling pin to roll over and break up the candy into small pieces, about 1/4 inch or so.

The orignal recipe can be found here: The FoodNetwork. I made some changes to make it a bit easier.


Policeman Shot: Daniel Faulkner - Actual 911 Clips. RIP.


Daniel Faulkner was murdered this day in 1981. This music video below  has clips of the actual police radio traffic during the call; it's eerie. Liberals praise & defend Mumia & have made a hero out of him. I get furious over very few things these days - but that injustice is high on my list.
Oh Yeah: Fuck you Ben & Jerry's, Ed Fucking Asner, And Susan Fugly Sarandon, among the big mouthed celebrities who have never bothered to educate themselves on the crime. 
If you haven't seen the movie "Barrel of a Gun" by Tigre Hill - it's a must watch. It's fascinating and shocking - and very scary how easily people buy into propaganda. It hasn't been released yet (we were fortunate to watch a screening of it and meet Tigre) but if you follow them on Facebook, you'll be notified when the DVD comes out. 
It's all about the spin. And while Officer Faulkner has been encased in a grave for 31 years - Mumia Abu Jamal has been propelled to Hero status by a bunch of celebrities who claim to be so compassionate yet remain happily ensconced in their mansions with maids, butlers, nannies, and personal assistants.

Obama's Hatfield Visit


Obama will be blathering on at a local company owned by Joel Glickman.
On Friday, November 30, he'll be at the Rodon manufacturing facility; 2800 Sterling Drive Hatfield, PA 19440.  (215) 822-5544 x100  Mr Glickman, according to stories, keeps his manufacturing in the USA.
But if Obama is such a cheerleader for the USA - why did Obama make Jeff Immelt  (CEO of G.E.) the President of his jobs council? GE hasn't paid taxes and ships jobs to China? Can you say total HYPOCRISY?
Is Obama still on the campaign trail? WTF? Why isn't he in Washington "rolling up his sleeves" to bring both sides together in regards to the "looming fiscal cliff..."
Why? Because he's all about photo ops - not hard work.
Instead of tackling Entitlements, he'd rather start class warfare and rage against the wealthy. Dis-unity causes people to be angry and look for a solution - and then Obama promises to be that "solution."
Obama is no different than Bush when it comes to crony capitalism. Bush was about banks & finance - and Obama puts all tax payer money into Green Companies owned by big Obama bundlers/donaters.
Hey, at least Bush put money into companies that are still around - unlike Obama who has wasted billions on bankrupt green companies. Here are the top 15 Bankrupt (that OUR money went to financing thanks to Obama) ...
Anyone who slobbers over the fact that Obama is visiting our "local" area is a total Whoron - A Moron who allows themselves to follow political propaganda blindly and screws over America in the process.

How K9 Officer Brad Fox's Murder Could Have Been Prevented, Philly Hero Thrill Show, A Vote For Obama Is a Vote For Increased Violence.

Wednesday, September 19, K-9 Plymouth Township Officer Brad Fox was laid to rest after being shot to death by a piece of crap career criminal who should have been sitting in a jail cell. He was killed by Andrew Charles Thomas a former key suspect in the 1999 disappearance of his fiance and was currently on probation for theft and had assaulted a cop in his past.

As a former paramedic who worked closely with cops, I have insight into what daily life is like for them.

I can say with 100% complete conviction that because of bleeding heart liberals, our cops, our friends, and our family, are not safe.

Liberals care more about the rights of criminals than they do victims.
It is disgraceful.

Liberals are soft on crime - believing this will reform criminals.
It doesn't work.
Case in point: When cops arrest criminals from Philadelphia - they freak out because they were caught in Montgomery County and know they will be going to jail. Montgomery County is a bit tougher on criminals (though still not as tough as they could be).

Every cop killed in the last 10 years has been killed by a career criminal.

On November 17, 2006 - Sgt. Timothy Simpson was killed by William Allan Foster, a junkie, career thief from Levittown. In August of 2006, 3 months prior to Simpson's murder, our own Magisterial District Justice Robert Gaffney of New Britain allowed bail  after Foster's Aug. 7 arrest of assaulting a police officer.

What's the solution?

1. Justice for the Victim - The focus of the criminal justice system should be to obtain justice for the victim. Our current criminal justice system has increasingly viewed the crime's victim as irrelevant to the justice process. When it comes to sentencing,  the first goal should be to make the victim whole while holding the criminal responsible for his deed. The criminal justice system should place emphasis on restitution. Other appropriate goals, such as deterrence and punishment, are secondary. Restitution recognizes crime as "an offense by one individual against the rights of another." The victim has suffered a loss. Justice consists of the  offender making good the loss he has caused."
Approximately 35 states currently have some form of victim restitution requirement, but they are seldom enforced. Even when courts order restitution, the state typically makes little effort to compel payment, or the defendant has few assets.

We can correct the former problem by a vigorous commitment to enforce restitution. Solving the latter problem calls for the institution of prison-based industries and prison-based labor, requiring a prisoner to work to pay restitution to his victim. Restitution should always be a condition of probation or community release.


2. End Prohibition

Our criminal justice system fails to render justice to the victims of crime because it spends an inordinate amount of resources on "crimes" that do not directly harm the person or property of another. More than 350,000 Americans are in jail today for victimless (or consensual) crimes, such as gambling, drug use, ,  etc. An additional 1.5 million are on parole or probation. The annual cost of arresting and punishing people for consensual crimes is more than $50 billion. That figure will grow even larger if politicians succeed in adding smoking tobacco to the prohibited list. No wonder we are so short of resources to protect victims of real crimes like robbery, rape and murder.

Of all our current law enforcement strategies, none has failed as dramatically -- or with such devastating results -- as the "War on Drugs." By attempting to solve America's drug problem through the criminal law, the government is repeating the same mistakes made 75 years ago during alcohol prohibition. Just as alcohol prohibition gave America Al Capone, the mafia, drug prohibition has brought us the Crips, Bloods and Jamaican Posses. At the same time, drug prohibition has failed miserably in its primary goal -- curbing drug use.

The correlation between drug prohibition and violence can no longer be doubted. America saw its highest murder rate during the years of prohibition. In the years after prohibition's repeal the murder rate steadily declined. Only after the beginning of the crackdown on illegal drugs in the 1960's did murder rates begin to edge back up. Today the murder rate again resembles the prohibition years. While other factors, such as the breakdown of the family and the rise of the welfare state (and Obama is increasing the welfare state drastically) contributed to this rise, a vast body of evidence links the "war on drugs" to increased violence and crime.

3. Get Tough on Real Crime

In part because of the diversion of resources to fight victimless crime (see above), real criminals increasingly escape punishment. The cost a criminal can expect to pay for committing a crime has declined for 20 years, while crime rates have steadily increased.

People should be held accountable for their actions. This includes immediate and just punishment for those guilty of committing violence or fraud against others.

But today, criminal sentences seldom mean what they say. On average, a criminal will serve only 37% of any sentence imposed. As a result, 51% of all violent offenders are released from jail after serving two years or less, and 76% were released after serving four years or less.

When a Judge imposes a sentence, the criminal should serve that sentence. Parole and other forms of early release should be severely restricted. Virtually every study on the subject has shown that parolees have a high recidivism rate.

One deeply disturbing trend is the increasing tendency to excuse individuals from responsibility for the crimes they commit. But isn't this trending in every area of life? Even Obama continues to blame Bush for his failing policies, almost four years later.

4. Protect the Right to Self-Defense

Americans have always viewed the right to self-defense as fundamental. Our Founding Fathers enshrined it in the Second Amendment. Yet, now, not only is the government failing to protect us, but it seems increasingly determined to disarm law-abiding Americans, thereby preventing them from exercising this fundamental right. Not only is the right of private citizens to keep and bear arms protected by the Constitution, it reduces crime and victimization.

While opponents (mainly Democrats) of the right to keep and bear arms frequently cite studies showing that individuals are more likely to kill an innocent person than protect a potential victim, those studies are seriously flawed. In reality, as many as 75 lives are protected by a gun for every life lost to a gun. Moreover defense with guns is one of the safest responses to violent crime. Defense with a gun results in fewer injuries to the defender (defender injured 17.4% of the time) than resisting with less powerful weapons (knives, 40.3%; other weapons, 22%; hands, 50.8%, and evasion, 34.9%). In fact, defense with a gun is safer than not resisting at all (24.7%). This is particularly important to women, the elderly, the handicapped, the weak and infirm, those most vulnerable to an attacker.

The right to self-defense also means the right of a community to organize private security for its protection. Numerous private residential subdivisions, neighborhood associations, mobile home and resort communities, hotel and apartment complexes, have already established private security forces. Existing legal barriers to community self-defense and private security arrangements should be repealed.

5. Address the Root Causes of Crime

The root causes of crime are no mystery. As Peter Greenwood, a criminal justice expert with the RAND Corporation explains, "We know the risk factors for violence and what creates it. Kids being born into poverty, to parents who can't take care of them." It is our current social welfare system that has created the risk factors that breed crime.

Nearly all social scientists agree that there is a direct link between out-of-wedlock births and social problems such as crime and drug abuse. For example, one study found that children raised in single-parent families are one-third more likely to exhibit anti-social behavior. Another study found that, holding other variables constant, black children from single-parent households were twice as likely to commit crimes as black children from a family where the father was present. With the rate of out-of-wedlock births now over 22% among white women and over 60% among blacks, increased violence and crime is virtually inevitable.

At the same time, social scientists link the skyrocketing rate of out-of-wedlock births with the availability of welfare. The Department of Health and Human Services found that a 50% increase in welfare benefits led to a 43% increase in out-of-wedlock births. A second study found that an increase in welfare benefits of $200 per month per family increased the rate of out-of-wedlock births among teenagers by 150%.

Consider another factor: government schools that fail to provide young people with the skills to earn a living in today's world. The statistics on American education are bad enough overall, but in America's inner cities public schools have failed completely -- dropout rates exceed 50% and those who complete school are often unable to read their diplomas. The public schools are "monopoly bureaucratic institutions, politically controlled in districts so large as to be virtually immune from political pressure, certainly pressure from uneducated and unorganized parents."

While wealthy and middle-class parents can escape failed school systems, either moving to better school districts or sending their children to private schools, poor parents and their children are left behind. Only by guaranteeing every parent the right to choose their child's school can we improve the opportunity for inner city children to get the education and skills necessary to have a future besides crime. - This means Vouchers.

But, even with adequate skills, poor inner city youth often cannot find work because government tax and regulatory policies have so limited the opportunity to start a business or create jobs. We must offer inner city youths hope for a future other than crime. This means repealing regulations and taxes that stand in the way of entrepreneurs who seek to open new businesses or expand existing ones.

Poverty, poor family structure, and lack of educational opportunity are not excuses for crime. But, we would be hopelessly naive to believe that we can solve our crime problem unless we act to alleviate those conditions.

No one denies that crime is a serious problem in America today. But, rather than protecting us and keeping our streets safe, current government policies are the primary reason the crime problem is growing worse.

The government is failing to protect us from violent criminals, while squandering the taxpayer's money on drug prohibition and similar activities. The government pushes victims aside in the criminal justice system, and threatens to create new victims by disarming law-abiding Americans. Meanwhile government welfare, education, tax and regulatory policies create a breeding ground for new criminals. It is a recipe for disaster.

A vote for Obama, is a vote for increasing violence.

In closing - this weekend the Philadelphia Hero Thrill Show will be on Saturday, September 22 from 12-5 pm. Tickets are 10.00 per person or 25.00 for more than 2 people. The money they make goes to the children of fallen police officers, like the incredible K9 Officer Brad Fox, who survived 2 tours in Iraq, but was slain by a career criminal.

Politics For Stoners!

An odd thing happened while shooting my video today - the first time we shot it, it became very cloudy and faded in and out. It's never done that before and I probably would have just chalked it up to a hiccup in the camera. HOWEVER- some crazy things have been happening in our house, making us think it's haunted...and then...today...suddenly our Flip Camera started wigging out...!! Creepy!!!

We shot is a second time, and it was perfect. If our plates start flying around the room - I'm totally outta here!

The first video is the "good" one - the one below is the foggy/creepy one. If anyone is familiar with the flip Cam and has an explanation - I'd love to know before calling in a priest to chase the spirits away!

FEARLESS - The ART of Breitbart

September 1st marks the sixth month anniversary of the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart. The man who inspired me to take action and to be FEARLESS. Andrew was known as a "connector" - introducing people who had similar ideas - or people who needed each other (one had an idea, a talent, the other could put that idea/talent into motion). 
So, really, is it any surprise that even in death, Andrew would still be a connector? 
Enter Jimmy Arone, an actor (you've probably seen him in movies) and a good friend of Andrew's. Jimmy reached out to me just by chance (though it was BECAUSE of Andrew - thus, my observation, even in death, Andrew is still a connector!)  and we've become virtual friends. (Read about Jimmy and Andrew here). 
The other day I was having a down day after the RNC powergrab (read about the powergrab here). What did I get in the mail? Two "FEARLESS" Breitbart buttons from Jimmy. Serendipity? I think so!
After Andrew died, Jimmy was inspired to "Paint Hollywood FEARLESS" and so he took to the streets, leaving reminders and inspirational art of Breitbart all around Hollywood. 
I can't think of a better day to tell this story...so...in Jimmy's own words, here it is: 


Some background into the artwork which was created after my friend, Andrew Breitbart, passed away...

Jimmy Arone: Breitbart Street Art
Upon hearing the news that morning, I was in a state of shock and didn't quite know what to do. However, after attending the memorial service for Andrew, days later, I decided to throw myself into creating a number of art pieces, inspired by the man, as a way to honor his memory.

One of the first things I did, was to create a collage from the front and back covers of his book 'Righteous Indignation'. A new piece that was pure Breitbart. It had energy. It had humor. I titled it FEARLESS.

Close up of shot shown below
Then, I decided to steal a page from the book of Shepard Fairey. Late one night, a few weeks after his death, I took to the streets of Hollywood and plastered Andrew's mug with the word: FEARLESS on as many walls, around town, as I could. I had a good time with that.

Andrew, clearly understood the importance of pop culture in today's society and how it relates to the world of politics. And how, for the most part, art is controlled by those on the Left. As far as I was concerned, it was time for a change. What I did with my FEARLESS street art, is something I know he would have applauded and enjoyed. Some dark night, I hope to go out there and do it again.

The red square is the FEARLESS artwork










The FEARLESS T is another thing I came up with. Using the same collage, I found a woman who made a killer silk-screen and printed the T's for me. She did a great job. The result is a very cool and one of a kind T-shirt (click here for info about Breitbart T-shirts) . It's something, I believe, Andrew would totally dig.

It would be great, one day to see thousands of people, who loved and were inspired by Andrew wearing one. To a Tea Party event (having a good time), to an OWS event (Behave Yourself!) going to the movies, on a trip to a museum or hell, just knockin' around the house on a beautiful summer day. We shall see...
----Jimmy Arone

In closing, Breitbart inspires me to not just be FEARLESS (in everything I do in life) - but he inspires me to be a person that will be talked about when I'm gone. That will be a positive influence - that will leave people motivated to carry on the message of being FEARLESS and standing up for the little guy, standing up for freedom, standing up to intolerance. As someone once said, "Andrew may be physically gone, but We Are All Breitbart Now."

Urgent Action Needed! Don't Let Those Greedy Bastards Win!


Remember when Government was once about "we the people?" - Yeah, me neither - guess what people, the RNC is playing some wicked games behind the scenes right now - trying to create a rule that instead of people voting in their primary election about who to send as delegates to the convention, those voted on BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, can be VETOED by the powers that be in favor of whoever the Powers that be want to have attend the convention. Which, basically,  is called stacking the deck.
It's like your boss asking you to nominate a co-worker to be assigned to a team that will create the new "rules" for your company. You talk to your co-workers and decide that "Jimmy John" would be the best person, as Jimmy John is loud but friendly, and really believes that you all need a raise and will fight to make that a new rule. So, you all vote and Jimmy John is the winner, but then your boss says, "You know what? I don't like that pick - so I'm picking my own person!" And then he picks Ken - the brown noser, the RAT that dimes everyone out.
I can't begin to tell you how important it is to take a few minutes and make a phone call to your state GOP office and tell them, "I oppose Romney's new rules that strip grassroots activists of the ability to participate in the Republican platform process!"

And, after you've located and called your state office (listed below) - then click this link and call your state committee people (there are 2 for each state) and tell them the same thing. If they aren't answering their cell phone, leave a message. And then, EMAIL THEM! http://www.eagleforum.org/alert/2012/pdf/ConventionCommitteeonRulesOrdeofBusinessContactInfo.pdf

This is about tea parties, gop parties, paul parties, this is about WE The PEOPLE parties!! Don't let the greedy bastards take any more power away from you than they already have!!!

2016 The Movie Reviews And A Lavender Pear Martini!



Sunday, August 26th - a group of Patriots joined together to rally at the corner of 611 and County Line Road in Warrington Pa.

It was a gorgeous sunny warm day and our small group waving flags and signs that supported Romney and Mike Fitzpatrick got many many honks and thumbs up. It was great to hear and see.

Then we went to see the theater to see the movie 2016.

Wow. It was done extremely well. It was produced by the Gerald Molen, the award winning producer of Schindler's List and Rain Man.

After the movie - a bunch of us headed over to Ruby Tuesdays and I had the most fabulous lavender pear martini! Ruby's has really updated their cocktails and I was really happily surprised!

We all agreed the movie 2016 was quite fascinating and a MUST SEE, a real wake up call. No conspiracy theories - just facts - facts Obama talked about in his memoirs. But the producer/director took Obama's past (as reported by Obama) - visited his family and traced his history and then weaved into what is happening in America under Obama's Presidency. It doesn't take a brain doctor to figure it out, but what it does take is a willingness to wake up, to pay attention. Ignoring what Obama is doing only gives him more power.

If you value the nice things you have: iPods, iPhones, computers, owning a home (or dreaming of one) - if you value your freedom, if you believe that hard work leads to rewards, if you want your future kids to flourish (not be saddled with debt and few opportunities) and that America was the best land because of our freedom and diversity - you need to see this movie, fire Obama in November, and start paying attention to politics so this sort of thing never occurs again.

Ruby Tuesday Gathering
To sum it up, after seeing the movie - Obama's actions now make sense. And what is frightening is the many people who choose to ignore what is happening to our Country at the mercy of this Kenyan man - a drunken, violent (he killed a man!), polygamist (he had five wives and was essentially a globe-trotting sperm donor), anti-colonialist radical.  Obama is not a traditional Democrat like Bill Clinton.  Obama isn't a left-wing liberal like John Kerry or Jimmy Carter.
This was the most AWESOME lavender pear martini 
Obama is Anti-Colonist. He was raised by a mother who hated white people (though she was white) and hated Capitalism.
Traditional liberals want to redistribute wealth in America: Obama wants to redistribute America’s power  throughout the world.
Obama wants to use his power as the American president to rid the world of colonialism … starting with downsizing the very power of the U.S.A - and the movie points to the actions Obama has made that is doing  just that:

On Oil:
He stopped the building of the Keystone Pipeline (which would have brought us oil and jobs).  He's blocked and hampered USA oil production: Alaskan drilling is off-limits, oil-shale development on Western lands is forbidden, oil-and-gas development off Virginia’s coast is prohibited, and almost all new drilling in the Gulf of Mexico is thwarted. Those Gulf energy fields, which long have been the nation’s most productive, remain blocked even after a federal judge found the administration in civil contempt for its refusal to allow more permits. According to Energy Information Administration estimates, Gulf oil production this year will be 130 million barrels fewer than pre-ban levels yet funneled 2 billion dollars into Brazil for oil exploration.

On Economy:
What was the goal of Bin Laden/Al Qaeda when they killed thousands of people in the 9/11 attack? They chose the World Trade Centers as both a symbol of attacking capitalism/wealth and wanted to destroy our economy. In the 4 years Obama has been President - he's raised the corporate tax rate the highest in the WORLD, causing businesses to flee the country. He's added almost 6 TRILLION dollars to our debt - the highest since WWII. Unemployment has been steady between 8%-9% - the highest since the 1930's. 45% of public debt was held by foreign countries when Obama took office - he's now increased the loans and we now owe 72%. If Obama continues the path he is on if re-elected, the USA will be at 100% - the same level as Greece causing the economic meltdown leading to violence.




On Foreign Relations: Obama's refusal to aid Syrian rebels against the Assad regime, but supported the toppling of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, and Mubarak was an ally of the United States!
Why support the overthrow of Mubarak, but not the democratic movement in Iran?  Short answer: What does Kaddafi and Mubarak – what do they have in common? They only have one thing in common.  They are either doing business with or allied with the United States!

During a recent British stand off with Argentina over rights to The Falkland Islands, Obama supported Argentina. The first American president to do so, and despite every single inhabitant of The Falkland Islands holding a British passport and considering themselves to be British citizens. The UK lent its full support to the US in their wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and has seen their young men return in coffins as a result, and they continue to do so. It should be remembered that the British lost 255 soldiers in 'The Falklands War' in 1992, Obama's lack of gratitude or respect is more than apparent.

American Security: We had an arsenal of 5,000 nuclear warheads. Obama took them down to 1,500 with a goal of 300 and eventually zero. Yet has done NOTHING to prevent Iran from building nuclear arms. Obama also also wants deep cuts to our military.

Anti-Jewish/Pro Islam - Many of Obama's policies have made it more likely that we will see the development of the United States of Islam within the next four years. A land mass stretching far to the east and west of Israel covering an area twice as large as China. The motivating sentiment being that Israel and the US are Occupiers or Colonialists, and that we must be gotten rid of. Very much like how Germany viewed the Jews during the Hitler era


The movie reveals that Barack Obama’s dominant motivation is to strengthen and spread Islam while decreasing the power and influence of the America.
Barack Obama wants to see a “Global Caliphate” or an “United States of Islam” emerge in the Middle East. If he gets a second term, he wants the monarchies of Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arabian Peninsula and Gulf States to be toppled by groups like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  There’s a reason Barack Obama refused to aid the revolutionaries in Iran and it’s because he wants to see Islamic theocracies spread across the Middle East with the ultimate goal of destroying Israel before 2016.  Obama sees his presidency as the window of opportunity for Muslims to wipe Israel off the map,which goes back to his father’s thinking that Israel was a “mini-colonial-empire” and that it had to be destroyed by Africans and Muslims.


One of the first things Obma did as the new President in 2009 was to to give back the bust of Winston Churchill that was in the Oval Office. 
Over and over again, the movie shows just how much both Barack Obama Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham hated the British and all colonial powers and how they taught their son to hate the British too.  It’s no wonder why Barack Obama immediately removed the bust of Winston Churchill when he became president and took over the Oval Office, and while after that he continued to order little slights against the British throughout his term such as giving Prime Minister Gordon Brown a box of DVDs from Best Buy during a state visit ( and handing Her Majesty the Queen an iPod full of Obama’s own speeches on the Obamas’ state visit to the UK.  Both of these acts were to show the British that Obama thought they were nothing special.

Can you IMAGINE the media outrage if Mitt Romney was good friends with these people:


Frank Marshall Davis, pro- Soviet, communist journalist, a known pedophile and  radical who was on the FBI and CIA’s Most Watched Lists - Obama talked greatly about him in his memoir and how Frank was a father figure to him growing  up.

Jeremiah Wright, the radical liberation antisemitic theology minister - Obama sat in his church for 20 years, considered him an Uncle, offered to bribe him to keep his mouth shut during 2008 campaign.

Edward Said, and extreme leftist anti-Israel and Western professor - Obama was great friends and said he admired this professor. Said told Obama he needed to distance himself during the 2008 campaign because if their relationship was unveiled, it would harm Obama's chances.

Bill Ayers Domestic Terrorist  - who, along with Bin Laden, bombed several American Buildings. Ironic that Obama takes credit for killing Bin Laden, yet his first fund-raiser was in the home of Bill Ayers, who planted bombs in the same building as Bin Laden. 

Some people say there is nothing different about Mitt Romney and Obama.
I beg to differ.
It all comes down to character - Mitt Romney has incredible pride in America, has no ties to antisemitics, domestic terrorist, or communists.

Final Day At GOP Platform Meetings - Tampa

First, I forgot to mention the awesome dessert I had from Jackson's in Tampa Monday  night.. Marshmallow on top, vanilla cheesecake with layer of chocolate ganache and graham cracker crust. Served with Nutella dipping sauce! WOW. So good.
Anyway - back to the program!
Tuesday morning ( thunder and serious crazy wind kept me up most of the night)
we headed over to the Marriott where an AP reporter interviewed Dean/Russ and a few people from our group. Of course, all the Freedom Platform issues we were concerned about had to do with cutting spending/regulations - but this reporter wanted to talk about abortion/gay marriage issues. C'mon PEOPLE. How many times do I have to say - it's about the FOUNDATION of this country which is CRUMBLING due to overspending/over regulation? Unfortunately, social issues are nothing but window dressing right now. None of it matters if we don't fix our freaking economy!
We sat in on some more amendment meetings.
Then we had lunch and I finally was able to catch up with one of the delegates who I'd tried to contact prior to going to Tampa. Mike Wallace lives in Maine and he is a young guy who worked on Rand Paul's campaign and is concerned with the same issues FW & the majority of Patriots are concerned about. We invited him to lunch with us at Champions which is downstairs in the Marriott. Our waiter remembered everyone's drinks from the day before. I mean, we're talking like 13 people! It was crazy!
I had the awesome strawberry martini again and a BBQ chicken salad that was so huge it could feed Michael Moore for a month.

After lunch, we shot some videos for FreedomWorks about how we felt about our experience at the GOP Platform Committee meetings.
Then we met for dinner at Jacksons while rain pounded the streets. Austin (The Producer who was a producer for Judge Napolitano's Fox show before it was RUDELY cancelled) sang an impromptu song. See the video above.
There was much laughter at the table. Oh, and I had the best tomato salad and this Sicilian Spinach salad made with pine nuts/raisins/ginger. And our waiters were also very awesome.
Oh, and I had the best wine EVER. When I told the waiter (who I called "Fisherman" (long story)) he told me it was a Dave Matthews Band collaboration - the label is "Dreaming Tree" and the wine is "Crush."
Russ & Dean (notice Dean w/ 2 drinks in his hands)
Of course - when he said it was from DMB - it explained why it was so FABULOUS. I hope the state controlled PA wine stores have it.
Have I mentioned how much I love the staff of FreedomWorks and the team I was with?
I love that there is so much diversity on staff and yet, the debates are friendly and thoughtful.
I hugged everyone before I left. And I am NOT a hugger!!! But these people feel like family to me.
It was a wonderful trip.
The fact that 11.5 of our platforms were incorporated (see my previous post for a list of our platforms - as well as my Morning Joe Mika video! click here) shows that the Romney Campaign is willing to work and accept the Tea Party platform of small gov, more freedom.
I left Tampa feeling very, very, optimistic of the election and if Romney wins, he will listen (and we will continue to keep the pressure on him!!).

Thank you Tampa! Thank you FreedomWorks staff: Russ Walker (also a delegate!), Dean Clancy (who is suspicious of wheat), Ryan Hecker (who I shared some laughs with regarding a delegate watching herself on the CSPAN monitor), Adam Brandon (who flew in and flew out way too quickly!), and Austin (see the video in this post - Austin needs his own reality show). And Heather - who we didn't meet but did all the travel planning!

There is cool. There is awesome. And then there is FreedomWorks! If you aren't yet involved with FreedomWorks or using their resources, what are you waiting for? www.FreedomWorks.org

And my Freedom Ninja Tampa family:

Gena Bell (OH)- don't let her petite stature and sweet nature fool ya, Gena is a spirited powerhouse.

Kristin Minor (IN) - she tries to hide her angel wings under suit jackets.

Greg Fettig (IN) - knows how to unite disconnected tea parties.

Donna Driskell (GA) Poor Donna. She had such a bad head cold and yet powered through.

Thomas Zawistowski (OH) - Tom doesn't know this, but I have renamed him Bob.

John Kuzmanich (OR) - Married to Bella AKA Melanie. Doesn't let the fact he's surrounded by Libs in OR get him down. Also - did NOT bring me a maple bacon donut from Vooodoo donuts. But obviously, I've moved past that.

Joyce Krawiec (NC) - Joyce tells the best stories in a sweet as pecan pie southern accent!

Ken Clark (CO) - Ken showed me the greatest tip on how to retain battery life on the iPhone. It was life
altering.

Vicki Dooling (NV) - Vicki had a busted ankle. She says she tripped and fell. I have a feeling it's from 
kicking some Big Govt butt!!!

Debbie Wilson (FL) - Two tornadoes hit her houses in FL and her house in GA - you know what they say, like attracts like! (meaning Debbie is a whirl wind of energy and getting things done.)

Konni Burton (TX) - Everything is big in Texas - including Konni's laugh - which was loud and frequent - and her heart is huge. You can't be in Konni's presence and NOT smile in .7 seconds.

And a BIG THANK you to Ana Puig - who suggested to the powers that be at FreedomWorks that I be on the Republican Platform Committee - I totally minded my manners (most of the time) - so as not to embarrass her or the Kitchen Table Patriot family back here in Doyelstown!

And finally, here is the video of me that Austin, The Producer, who needs his own reality who,  shot - I'm sure had he known I'd be posting his impromptu singing - he might have used the "bad"' camera. heh heh. 

The video sums my experience at the GOP Platform Committee perfectly!

Tampa - GOP Platform Meetings Day 2! Freedom Works/FreedomPlatform


Let’s remember- it’s not so long ago that I woke from my apathetic political slumber. So, to be perfectly honest – I had no idea that every 4 years before an election – both political parties wrote their own “contract” so to speak – of what they wanted the newly (if) elected president/and party to accomplish during their four years in power.
So when FreedomWorks contacted me and offered to send me to Tampa to talk to the delegates and explain the FreedomWorks Platform, hoping they would understand and love it as much as we did and try to get it incorporated, I said... “Let me...YES!”
I had no idea what to expect, being as I had no idea that a Republican Platform EXISTED!!!
In getting ready for my trip, I read the last 2 RNC and DNC Platforms. I shot my “Mika 12 for 12 Freedom Platform Video” and sent emails and phoned my delegates. No one called me back, and I felt A) Relieved, because y'all know how much I love the phone and B)Worried that no one wanted to talk to me!
view outside the Platform Committee Meetings
Well, guess what - it seems like our 12 for 12 Freedom Platform was for the most part, already accepted. Thanks to all the grass roots activists who called (Governor McDonnell said his office was inundated with phone calls in support of the FreedomWorks Freedom Platform!!) Was that YOU, readers??? I know some of those calls were from you guys because you're the kind that value action!!! So thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Monday morning, I met up with 11 other people chosen by FreedomWorks to reach out to the delegates and be present for the Committee meetings in Tampa. We were from various swing states and very active in our home-states fighting for freedom! (Freedom Ninjas per Austin, The Producer) We ate breakfast at the hotel and had a fabulous view overlooking the bay.
Then we walked down the street to the Marriott where the meetings were taking place.
The delegates (voted on in their home state) met in the morning to talk about about the various sections(Jobs/Economy/Healthcare/Education/Etc.). Then they broke up into groups and discussed the ideas they wanted to put into the 2012 Republican Platform.
Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn also pushed for the FW Freedom Platform - the Tea Party has an ally in Blackburn. Also - Romney seemed to be willing to listen and accept what us, tea party, activists, are concerned about. I can't tell you how optimistic this makes me!
Breakfast with Freedom Ninjas!
The FW Team (I LOVE them, what a fabulous bunch of smart, fun, Patriots!!!) sat in the various
The Delegates going thru amendments 
topic discussions. Though really, for me, it's all about cutting regulations and spending (the foundation of our Country - we must strengthen that for security and prosperity) - I sat in a discussion in which Gay Marriage came up. It seems like the young people are pushing for "softer" language (though some older folks agreed also!). All the delegates did agree that we must respect everyone know matter what their religion or sexual orientation; however, the language and how to incorporate it was a long, interesting, sometimes heated discussion.
The Platform hasn't been finalized yet, so I'm not sure what the final outcome will be.
We ate lunch at Champions where I had a strawberry martini and a turkey burger with cranberry mayo and sweet potato tater tots (OMG- they were so crisp and wonderful!). In the afternoon, more meetings, and then we all met at dinner at Jackson's where we ate outside overlooking the bay. A tremendous storm blew in soon after and I watched an awesome lighting show from my spacious but cozy hotel room!
It was a day full of learning and it was totally fun.
And I love FreedomWorks and everyone who was selected to be on this team. There are no egos here; there is only friendship and enthusiasm!
