Duh Uh

This disclaimer is on every Americans for Prosperity email I've received.  How hard can it possibly be to Google the name and find out exactly what type of organization this is.  I like what AFP stands for and if I had money to spare, I would donate to their cause.  Here's the President, proving once again that he is clueless.

Americans for Prosperity® (AFP) is a nationwide organization of citizen leaders committed to advancing every individual's right to economic freedom and opportunity. AFP believes reducing the size and scope of government is the best safeguard to ensuring individual productivity and prosperity for all Americans. AFP educates and engages citizens in support of restraining state and federal government growth, and returning government to its constitutional limits. AFP has more than one million members, including members in all 50 states, and 31 state chapters and affiliates. More than 60,000 Americans in all 50 states have made a financial investment in AFP.  More info, see:

Do We Have Stupid Tatooed on our Foreheads!

While being questioned about Michelle Obama's vacation abroad with her daughter, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs had the balls to say, "She's a private citizen taking a vacation."  Well, you know what?  The taxpayers don't pick up the tab for the staff and servants who accompany Joe Blow and his family, but we certainly are for Ms. Obama.  How dare her, when the economy is in the toilet, people are losing their homes and jobs, and prices of everything are escalating, take a glitzy vacation.  It's a slap in the face of America. The Obama's may be picking of part of the tab, but so are you and I.

Class Action Law Suit

Just sharing this letter to let you know that I am one of the thousands who signed the petition against Obamacare.  So, if in the next few months, you hear on the news that people are disappearing without a trace, check the list and see if any of the names of those missing appear there.  After watching the video I can see how real this is.  I'm turning sixty-five in a few months, and I'd like to have the choice of being treated by a doctor or being discounted by congress as a waste of money.


Two weeks ago I filed an amended complaint adding 25,444 of you as co-plaintiffs in our lawsuit against Obamacare. The complaint ballooned from 9 pages to 284 pages, simply by adding your names.

I also filed a motion for preliminary injunction. This is a request for a court order prohibiting the Federal government from enforcing any aspect of Obamacare pending the outcome of our lawsuit.

Last week I flew to DC with a few representatives of the health care industry to personally serve Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and the Department of Justice. We left copies of the complaint, motion for injunction, and summons with staffers at the defendant’s offices. It’s not often that a Congressional candidate, a physician, an emergency room nurse, a Tea Party activist, and a reporter crowd into a Congressional office and plop down a 284 page lawsuit with 25,444 named plaintiffs. It was a sight to see, and quite a fun day. When we got to the White House the Secret Service agents refused to let us leave the documents at the gate. Then the White House administrative office two blocks from the White House refused to let us in the door. We’re now mailing the President’s copy of the complaint to the White House. We could have mailed all of the documents, but personally serving them was an important symbol of our frustration with the current leaders of our government. A volunteer has put together all of our amateur video into a documentary. Check it out at -

Our efforts were rewarded by Fox News with a Friday night interview by former Bush White House Press Secretary Dana Perino on Greta Van Susturen’s show. You can see the interview at Since the latest Fox interview, over 2400 new plaintiffs have signed up to join our lawsuit against Obamacare.

The defendants now have 60 days to respond to the complaint, and only 14 days to respond to the motion for preliminary injunction from the time Obama receives his copy. Once the defendants respond to the motion, we will have 7 days to answer any arguments they raise. Then the Federal Court can either rule on the motion or set a hearing. Most likely the court will set a hearing for some time in September or early October. I’ll let you all know as soon as I hear anything from the defendants or the Court. We will have at least a couple weeks notice before the hearing if you would like to make plans to be there. You do not have to attend, I will be representing you. Attendance is completely optional.

Thank you all for your willingness to fight our Federal government’s latest power grab in the form of Obamacare.

Pucker Up!

A woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed to be far too qualified for the job.

The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this: "Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"

"Well, as a matter of fact, I have!"

"I've been divorced three times, owned two cars made by General Motors, and I voted for Obama."
WARNING: I support the office of the President, not the person currently holding it!
