WNB January 2011


Willowtown Column: It’s time to hold the line, and advance

For the last three days I’ve gotten up in the morning, since I was laid off from my recent temp job, and read and listened to various opinionations about what happened last Saturday.

There’s probably more out there by now than one could cover in half a lifetime. So I make no pretense of being aware of every little thing that happened in Tucson or why.

The Marxist mutt Plans for Federal Internet "Identity Ecosystem"

If the Marxist mutt’s plans for the Internet are implemented by the federal government, Internet anonymity may soon be a thing of the past. The whole project has been given the typically massaged moniker of “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” (NSTIC). The development of the strategy is not a sudden, recent development. (In fact, a June 2010 draft of the proposed strategy is available here from the Department of Homeland Security.) But comments last week by Commerce Secretary Gary Locke appear to indicate that the administration may be preparing to implement NSTIC.

We've been 'socialist' for a long time...



Illinois Lawmakers Pass 66 Percent Income Tax Increase

Illinois lawmakers approved a 66 percent increase in the state income tax in the early morning hours of January 12, part of a dramatic effort to address the state’s critical budget crisis. The Democrat-controlled legislature passed the increase at the tail end of a lame duck session, with some lawmakers who supported the measure scheduled to leave office hours later when a new General Assembly was sworn in.

The bill (SB 2505) passed in the House by a 60 to 57 vote late January 11, with the state senate approving the measure by a razor-thin 30 to 29 margin in the early morning hours of January 12th. Democratic Governor Pat Quinn had pushed the bill as a temporary fix to staunch a budget deficit that could hit $15 billion this year. His office said that the increase, which will raise the personal income tax rate from three percent to five percent while hiking the corporate tax rate from 4.8 percent to seven percent, will generate some $6.8 billion per year for the state’s coffers.

--- Absolutely incredible. There is no limit to "Liberal"(commie) insanity except for the limits we force upon them.

Neighboring states gleeful over Ill. tax increase

While many states consider boosting their economies with tax cuts, Illinois officials are betting on the opposite tactic: dramatically raising taxes to resolve a budget crisis that threatened to cripple state government.

Neighboring states gleefully plotted Wednesday to take advantage of what they consider a major economic blunder and lure business away from Illinois.

"It's like living next door to `The Simpsons' — you know, the dysfunctional family down the block," Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said in an interview on Chicago's WLS-AM.

--- Maybe Bart should run for Mayor of Chicago. His competition isn't much.

If only the Marxist mutt spoke this well...


See Phil Moffett's website.

Soros advises Obama to use forceful measures to override the will of the people

Apparently, George Soros and his Center are upset that the American people placed a roadblock in their plans when we rose up and painted the nation red. The Center now is providing a blueprint of ways Barack Obama can do an end run around the people’s will by resorting to methods that will strike many of us as being improper-to say the least. Relying on executive orders, interpretation of regulations, rule -making and the like they are collectively a recipe for even more power being assumed by President Obama.

Fight for the Filibuster

“Filibuster” is not a dirty word.

This may seem an obvious point. But it’s worth noting, given the campaign now underway on Capitol Hill to severely curtail a practice designed to ensure that legislation goes through a process of calm, reasoned debate.

In the Founders’ vision, the Senate was the “cooling saucer” that would temper legislation developed in the high-temperature House of Representatives. The filibuster grew out of this function. The United States, after all, is a constitutional republic, not a direct democracy. The majority can’t simply steamroll the minority. The minority gets a voice, too, in shaping legislation. And in the Senate, that voice is expressed at times through the filibuster.

Everyone knows....


...government is just another scam, no matter where one lives.

Americans Arm Themselves in Wake of Tucson Shootings

Despite — or perhaps because of — politicians’ and pundits’ handwringing about the dangers of guns in the hands of ordinary citizens in the wake of the January 8 shootings in Tucson, Arizona, Americans seem far from fearful about the prospect of owning firearms. In fact, they are positively giddy about buying their own guns. Bloomberg News reports that, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation data, handgun sales across the country on January 10 were up 5 percent year-over-year, with Arizona experiencing a 60 percent increase. In addition, sales rose 65 percent in Ohio, 38 percent in Illinois, 33 percent in New York, and 16 percent in California.

--- Great, just when ammo was getting affordable again.

Man Injured During Georgetown Robbery

A clerk was injured during a violent gas station robbery in Georgetown Monday evening.

Police say a man wearing a camouflage hunting mask approached a clerk the Swifty gas station on Paris Pike and asked for cigarettes. When the clerk turned to unlock the case, the suspect hit him over the head with a tire iron. The suspect demanded money and escaped on foot with some cash. He was last seen running toward the back of a nearby Gulf gas station.

--- Time to ban those fully automatic tire irons. They give bad guys bad ideas. We all know how dangerous ideas can be.

Some things you might need to know...


Some surplus is fine. Some of it is junk. Think 'lowest bidder' or political contract. Much of it is better than when I was in Uncle Sugar's camping club. It's certainly more affordable than the yuppie gear.

Rand Paul vs. David Hawpe

As most focus on Rand Paul's swearing in as Kentucky's new junior senator in the new Congress [like Freeman in Ky w/ lots of video], back here in the Bluegrass, Sen. Paul is still fighting one of his longest standing public battles against the Courier-Journal and its former editorial page director, David Hawpe.

Hawpe, who performed his job at the C-J with a rooster -- the symbol of the Kentucky Democratic Party -- on his desk, has only sharpened his partisan stick since officially departing the fading giant at 6th and Broadway.

Normally, liberals and Democrats are against excessive spending on military and defense... but when Rand Paul advocates for reductions in military spending, it turns a partisan like Hawpe into a neo-con taking his cues from Dick Cheney.

--- Hawpe is just another despicable low-life commie newswhore. Keep it in mind for future events.

Raw milk farmer wins victory against county over 'illegal' sales

A small victory has been won on the raw milk battle front. Greene County, Mo., Circuit Judge Daniel Imhoff recently threw out a lawsuit against Armand Bechard, a farmer who sells raw milk to customers in the Springfield area. According to the judge, Bechard was not the proper subject of the lawsuit, and the statute of limitations prevents any further action in the case, so Bechard is free to resume business as usual.

European secession?



Praise For Lee And Jackson

Thankfully, freedom’s heartbeat is still felt among at least a few states. State sovereignty resolutions (proposed in over 30 states), Firearms Freedom acts (passed in 2 states–Montana and Tennessee–and being proposed in at least 12 other states), and official letters (Montana), statements (Texas Governor Rick Perry), and resolutions (Georgia and Montana) threatening secession have already taken place.

--- We need to take our entire country and government back. Well maybe we could wall off Massachusetts and see how long it takes those commies to starve out.

Leahy Is Right: Vermont Is Different

There are other important historical facts about the Green Mountain State. Vermont considered itself an independent nation for some time. When the U.S. Constitution was adopted, Vermont was not a state; it was disputed land between New York and New Hampshire. (Interestingly, Maine too was not a state at that time, but rather a part of Massachusetts — a bit of trivia often lost on American students today.) Vermont considered itself an independent republic for 14 years before acceding to join the United States — after respectfully disagreeing with its neighbors that it was part of another state, and showing a willingness to support that opinion with its armed militia. When Vermont then joined the Union — slavery having already been banned — it entered as a completely free state.

If only...


...the republicrats had the courage to do what will be required to fix this mess if it can be fixed.

Illegals Are Breaking the Bank

The Harris County Hospital District, the public hospital system in Houston, Texas, found that 60 percent of births over the last four years were by women living here illegally. It’s estimated, in Texas alone, there are 1.5 million illegal immigrants, to which 60,000 babies are born to their households annually. In fact, a Pew Hispanic Center study revealed that 8 percent of U.S. babies a year are born to mothers here illegally.

34,612 Deaths in Mexico’s Drug War in 4 Years, Mexican President Says

A total of 34,612 people have died in drug-related killings in Mexico in the four years since Mexican President Felipe Calderon declared an offensive against drug cartels, officials said Wednesday.

The killings reached their highest level in 2010, jumping by almost 60 percent to 15,273 deaths from 9,616 the previous year.

Oil panel comes up dry on offshore drilling

With gasoline prices at unusually high levels for this time of year, a report from a presidential commission Tuesday did little to break the political deadlock over offshore drilling, prompting some observers to warn that the United States is headed toward another gas-price crunch this summer.

--- How many gallons of crude can one squeeze out of an average "Liberal"(eco-commie)?

U.S.-Chinese currency link creates spiral in global food costs

The trend threatens to pick up speed and become an obstacle for the global economy this year as growth in the United States accelerates to as high as 4 percent and contributes to burgeoning demand for basic goods obtained in global markets.

The chain reaction behind the phenomenon is reminiscent of the commodity-price spiral that occurred in 2008, which led to record-high prices for oil, corn, wheat, copper, iron and other necessities. China, in particular, is playing a key role in translating the Federal Reserve's loose-money policies — aimed at reviving the U.S. economy — into global commodity inflation through its policy of linking its currency to the U.S. dollar. That makes for one more reason the currency issue is sure to be raised as a bone of contention when Chinese President Hu Jintao visits Washington next week.

--- How much longer until we're subsisting as our grandparents did? When we return to dirt roads and horse drawn farm implements maybe the eco-commies will be happy.

Well, at least dog food may remain affordable for a while...

Quote for the times

"Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied." -- Otto von Bismarck


"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." -
The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America,
Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)

It's time to bring back the old saying: "Better dead than red."
Only we need to apply it to Amerika's reds.


Watch to see what we should be teaching kids
to do to "Liberals" so they'll actually
have a future in a free country:

“No small shot gun, during my residence of seven years of war in America, was ever kept in the house of a backwoodsman. You will often see a boy not over ten years of age driving the cattle home, but not without a rifle on his shoulder; they never stir out on any business, or on a journey without their rifles. Practice from their infancy, teaches them all distances…

 “I never in my life saw better rifles (or men who shot better) than those made in America. They are chiefly made in Lancaster, and two or three neighboring towns in that vicinity in Pennsylvania. The barrels weigh about six pounds two or three ounces and carry a ball no larger than thirty-six to the pound; at least I never saw one of a larger caliber, and I have seen many hundreds and hundreds.” - Colonel George Hanger, captain of a Hessian Jager corps of the American Revolution, as quoted in Muzzleloader Magazine's 'The Book of Buckskinning.'

Our civilization has been taken from mindless aggression to mindless pacifism. The latter is the most dangerous by far. We must put knowledge of our most basic right, that of self-defense, back into the hands and minds of the young, or they are doomed to be mindless pacified slaves, and most importantly 'victims' who can be used as pawns by those who seek to maintain their power over us all.

"Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom." - John Adams, Defense of the Constitutions, 1787

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." - Richard Henry Lee (1732-1794) Founding Father

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun." – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778
