No Stimulus! (petition)

Believe it or not, there is something we can do about what's going on in Congress. President Obama & his Marxist cohorts are railroading the 'stimulus' package with the 'fierce urgency of now'! Call me crazy, but I get the vaguest sense they're in a real hurry with this thing. (Anyone?)

When I feel somebody attempting to rush past me with such blazing dispatch (my kids with ill-gotten cookie-jar loot), I get real suspicious. Makes me want to say, "Hold on, there, cowboy. Slow up & let me take a look at this thing." Or maybe I just say, "NO! Not this rodeo!"

That's what I feel like today, & that's why I'm posting with the FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW!

A call to action:

1) Americans for Prosperity has an online Petition against the Stimulus. Zip over there & sign it.

2) Call, email or write (do people still do this?) your Senators & Representatives. Here's the site where you can get YOUR people, no matter where you live. Please, folks, turn up the heat.

Our Revolutionary patriots fought against Taxation without Representation. This is how you get represented.

Back to that nagging suspicion I told you about. 'Seems I'm not the only one. Here's Townhall's Charles Krauthammer , quoting President Obama & then saying what we all know to be true:

"A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe." -- President Obama, Feb. 4.

Catastrophe, mind you. So much for the president who in his inaugural address two weeks earlier declared "we have chosen hope over fear." Until, that is, you need fear to pass a bill.

It's the essential fraud of rushing through a bill in which the normal rules...are suspended on the grounds that a national emergency requires an immediate job-creating stimulus -- and then throwing into it hundreds of billions...that are little more than the back-scratching, special-interest, lobby-driven parochialism that Obama came to Washington to abolish. He said.

Turns out the "fierce urgency of now" includes $150 million for livestock insurance.

Act now, friends.

What's even scarier about the stimulus is it begins to nationalize health care and presents the rules to ration health care. The elderly don't have much chance for health care if they pass this.

I can't get the page to come up.

Hi Clay~
I've had trouble with the page today, too. Apparently, the AFP group got some national TV coverage this morning & their site has been slammed w/ hits. I'll double check my link. If I made an error, I'll comment again, if not, maybe just keep trying. (I got through once, but then the link was jammed again.)

Susannah said...

Alright, Clay. New link, straight to the petition. Please let me know if you have more trouble.

And thanks so much for letting me know about that glitch!

I'm with you Susannah and btw, that was a great post on the "SO CALLED" conservative blog just a few minutes ago.
I also wrote my thoughts there.
That blog has some very weird posters there.

You are so right...
there is a personal agenda behind it

Debbies Choice said...
