Gonorrhea Lectim?!?

Information about Gonorrhea Lectim  {-URGENT-}


The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new
virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim.
It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible obamanation.


The disease is contracted through dangerous and high-risk behavior
involving putting your cranium up your rectum.

Many victims contracted it in 2008...but now most people, after
having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how
destructive AND COSTLY this sickness is.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug
just coming on the market called Votemout (AND ITS FREE!)
You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again;
otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folk you really care about.

This should put to rest any ideas that our government is here to help us

WARNING.....Three great TAX waves Coming!


Start saving your money!  The last one is the best!


"It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to lose it. If you think about that, you will do things differently"
-Warren Buffett

In just six months, on January 1, 2011, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect.

They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves.

On January 1, 2011, here's what happens... (read it to the end, so you see all three waves)...


First Wave:

Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief

In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for investors, small business owners, and families.

These will all expire on January 1, 2011.

Personal income tax rates will rise. 

The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to 39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which two-thirds of small business profits are taxed).  
The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent.  
All the rates in between will also rise.  

Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out, which has the same mathematical effect as highermarginal tax rates.  

The full list of marginal rate hikes is below:

The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15%

  • The 25% bracket rises to 28%

  • The 28% bracket rises to 31%

  • The 33% bracket rises to 36%

  • The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%

    Higher taxes on marriage and family.  

    The "marriage penalty" (narrower tax brackets for married couples) will return from the first dollar of income.  

    The child tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child.  

    The standard deduction will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single level.  

    The dependent care and adoption tax credits will be cut.

    The return of the Death Tax.

    This year only, there is no death tax.  (It's a quirk!) For those dying on or after January 1, 2011, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million.  A person leaving behind two homes, a business, a retirement account, could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones.  Think of the farmers who don't make much money, but their land, which they purchased years ago with after-tax dollars, is now worth a lot of money.  Their children will have to sell the farm, which may be their livelihood, just to pay the estate tax if they don't have the cash sitting around to pay the tax.  Think about your own family's assets.  Maybe your family owns real estate, or a business that doesn't make much money, but the building and equipment are worth $1 million.  Upon their death, you can inherit the $1 million business tax free, but if they own a home, stock, cash worth $500K on top of the $1 million business, then you will owe the government $275,000 cash!  That's 55% of the value of the assets over $1 million!  Do you have that kind of cash sitting around waiting to pay the estate tax?

    Higher tax rates on savers and investors.

    The capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20 percent in 2011.  

    The dividends tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 39.6 percent in 2011.  

    These rates will rise another 3.8 percent in 2013.

    Second Wave:


    There are over twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare. Several will first go into effect on January 1, 2011.  They include:

    The "Medicine Cabinet Tax"

    Thanks to Obamacare, Americans will no longer be able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin).

    The "Special Needs Kids Tax"

    This provision of Obamacare imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts (FSAs) of $2500 (Currently, there is no federal government limit). There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children.  

    There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States , and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education.

    Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington , D.C. ( National Child Research Center ) can easily exceed $14,000 per year.

    Under tax rules, FSA dollars can not be used to pay for this type of special needs education.

    The HSA (Health Savings Account) Withdrawal Tax Hike.

     provision of Obamacare increases the additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAsand other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent.

    Third Wave:

    The Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) and Employer Tax Hikes

    When Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January of 2011, they'll be in for a nasty surprise-the AMT won't be held harmless, and many tax relief provisions will have expired.

    The major items include:

    The AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last year.

    According to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center , Congress' failure to index the AMT will lead to an explosion of AMT taxpaying families-rising from 4 million last year to 28.5 million.  These families will have to calculate their tax burdens twice, and pay taxes at the higher level.  The AMT was created in 1969 to ensnare a handful of taxpayers.

    Small business expensing will be slashed and 50% expensing will disappear.

    Small businesses can normally expense (rather than slowly-deduct, or "depreciate") equipment purchases up to $250,000.  

    This will be cut all the way down to $25,000.  Larger businesses can currently expense half of their purchases of equipment.  

    In January of 2011, all of it will have to be "depreciated."

    Taxes will be raised on all types of businesses.

    There are literally scores of tax hikes on business that will take place.  The biggest is the loss of the "research and experimentation tax credit," but there are many, many others. Combining high marginal tax rates with the loss of this tax relief will cost jobs.

    Tax Benefits for Education and Teaching Reduced.

    The deduction for tuition and fees will not be available. 

    Tax credits for education will be limited.  

    Teachers will no longer be able to deduct classroom expenses.

    Dear Mr. Obama





    Barack OBAMA, during his Cairo speech,  said:  
    "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part
    of  America 's story."


     Dear Mr. Obama:


     Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims
    first landed?  Funny, I thought they were
    Native American Indians.


      Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving
    day?  Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and
    Native American Indians.


      Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United
    States Constitution?

    Declaration of Independence ?

    Bill of Rights?

     Didn't think so.

     Did Muslims fight for this country's freedom from
    England ?  No.

    Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the
    slaves in America ?  No, they did
    not.  In fact, Muslims to this day are
    still the largest traffickers in human
    slavery.  Your own half brother, a devout
    Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even
    though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black
    Muslims as "pug nosed slaves."  Says a lot
    of what the Muslim world really thinks of your
    family's "rich Islamic heritage," doesn't it Mr.

    Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this
    country?  Not present.

    There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking
    side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or
    helping to advance the cause of Civil

    Where were Muslims during this country's Woman's Suffrage
    era?  Again, not present.  In fact,
    devout Muslims demand that women are subservient
    to men in the Islamic culture.  So much so,
    that often they are beaten for not wearing the
    'hajib' or for talking to a man who is not a
    direct family member or their husband. 
    Yep, the Muslims are all for women's rights,
    aren't they?

     Where were Muslims during World War II?  They were
    aligned with Adolf Hitler.  The Muslim
    grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler,
    reviewed the troops and accepted support from
    the Nazi's in killing Jews.

     Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th,
    2001?  If they weren't flying planes into
    the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field
    in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on
    our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle
    East .  No one can dispute the pictures
    shown from all parts of the Muslim world
    celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other
    cable news networks that day.  Strangely,
    the very "moderate" Muslims who's asses you bent
    over backwards to kiss in Cairo , Egypt on June
    4th were stone cold silent post 9-11.  To
    many Americans, their silence has meant approval
    for the acts of that day.

    And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the "rich heritage" Muslims have here
    in America .

     Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. 
    They were Muslim.

     And now we can add November 5, 2009 - the slaughter of American
    soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a
    doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be
    counseling soldiers returning from battle in
    Iraq and Afghanistan .

    That, Mr. Obama, is the "Muslim heritage" in America


    Be Sure to SEND IT to All .   Even Print it out and
    Send by Snail Mail !!

    heritage, my ass.

    Farm Food Voices DC 2011

    Farm Food Voices DC 2011 Farm Food Voices DC 2011

    National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association

    11 August, 2010


    ***Please forward to
    other interested farmers, producers and chefs***

    Farmers and chefs supportive of local foods are invited to participate in Farm Food Voices DC 2011 - the annual local foods feast on Capitol Hill for legislators, staff and grassroots lobbyists, organized by the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association (NICFA)
    Led by Chef Bryan Voltaggio of VOLT restaurant in Frederick, MD,
    and Emceed by Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm, Swoope, VA

    Farm Food Voices (FFV) celebrates the abundance of the land and the fruits of our labors.  An innovator in the meeting of politics and food, it is a feast that connects us with our legislators, giving a face and voice to "small farms" and "local foods."

     WHEN: Early Spring 2011, Capitol Hill, Washington DC (Tentatively the second week in March. Exact date to be confirmed when the legislative calendar is set later this year).

    Farmers, this is an opportunity for you to highlight your farm's production by bringing the beauty and bounty of your farm to the table.

     Chefs, you get to work with the finest ingredients to create local food dishes while establishing relationships with local producers and legislators.

     Farmers and chefs, you are invited to blog on our new Farm Food Voices blogsite as you work together, generating excitement for the feast.

     Please contact Liz Reitzig to be part of our amazing team of farmers and chefs for FFV 2011. We hope to see you there! or 301-807-5063

     Learn more about Farm Food Voices DC, how and why we hold this special annual event including information about past events.


    What is Farm Food Voices?

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
    --Margaret Mead

     Each spring, while farmers across the country plant seeds in the ground, Farm Food Voices DC plants seeds in the minds and hearts of legislators: seeds that lead to a bountiful harvest of freedom for farmers and consumers to provide for each other.  As our farmers cultivate the land for a rich yield in the future, so must we build and cultivate relationships with our legislators.
    The average consumer is experiencing a food renaissance.  Consumers realize that the best ingredients come from local small, independent farms, and they strive to preserve access to these foods.  Small-scale farmers are the new super heroes as they find ways to bring life back to the earth while cultivating amazing food. As our heroes encounter the regulatory and legislative burdens of selling to their consumers, they are speaking out. Consumers, listening to farmers, have joined voices with them.

    Food unites us.  It is a commonality we all share and relate to.  Gathering around the table together builds on our sense of community and responsibility to each other.  Led by the National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association, farmers, chefs, small business owners, non-profit organizations and consumers cooperate to bring the message of food freedom to Congress. At this national small farm and ranch grassroots lobby day and legislative reception, individuals and groups spend the day on Capitol Hill meeting with their legislators' and staff.  At the end of the day, we tangibly and artistically illustrate our message with a fabulous local foods feast for legislators, staff and grassroots lobbyists prepared by the region's best chefs using ingredients donated by local farms.
    Click below for a write-up of Farm Food Voices 2010.

    Farm Food Voices 2011

    In 2010 17 chefs and over 50 farmers/producers participated. For 2011, our vision is to double that number and encourage farmers and chefs to blog.  For example, farmers can share as they grow and harvest their production; chefs can make a request for an unusual ingredient; legislative aides can help choose a menu...the possibilities are endless when we engage in the creative process together.  We look forward to having you be a part of Farm Food Voices DC 2011.

    Yours for food freedom,

    Deborah Stockton, Executive Director
    National Independent Consumers and Farmers Association (NICFA)

    Our purpose is to promote and preserve unregulated direct farmer-to-consumer trade that fosters availability of locally grown or home-produced food products.
    NICFA opposes any government funded or managed National Animal Identification System.

    When WWIII Started - 1979

    A concise chronology for those "nappers" who think the U.S.A. started the war in the Middle East. Let's quit loosing American lives for naught, and end or at least control this thing. I don't care what they do to each other on their own land. Not acceptable in our back yard!!!!!

     When WW III Started - 1979 

    This is not very long, but very informative
     You have to read the catalouge of events in this brief piece. Then, ask yourself how anyone can take the position that all we have to do is bring our troops home from Iraq, reset the snooze alarm, go back to sleep, and no one will ever bother us again. In case you missed it, World War III began in November 1979...

    US Navy Captain Ouimette is the Executive Officer at Naval Air Station, Pensacola , Florida . Here is a copy of the speech he gave last month. It is an accurate account of why we are in so much trouble today and why this action is so necessary.


    That's what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have been 'Get Out of Bed!' In fact, the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.

    It was a cool fall day in November

     1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran . This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world's most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency  The attack on this sovereign U. S. Embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 25 years.

    America was still reeling from the aftermath of the Vietnam experience and had a serious threat from the Soviet Union when then, President Carter, had to do something. He chose to conduct a clandestine raid in the desert. The ill-fated mission ended in ruin, but stood as a symbol of America's inability to deal with terrorism.

    America 's military had been decimated and down sized since the end of the Vietnam War. A poorly trained, poorly equipped and poorly organized military was called on to execute a complex mission that was doomed from the start.

    Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and killed throughout the Middle East . America could do little to protect her citizens living and working abroad. The attacks against US soil continued.

    In April of 1983 a large vehicle packed with high explosives was driven into the US Embassy compound in Beirut When it explodes, it kills 63 people. The alarm went off again and America hit the Snooze Button once more.

    Then just six short months later in 1983 a large truck heavily laden down with over 25 00 pounds of TNT smashed through the main gate of the US Marine Corps headquarters in Beirut and 241 US servicemen are killed. America mourns her dead and hit the Snooze Button once more.

    Two months later in December 1983, another truck loaded with explosives is driven into the US Embassy in Kuwait , and America continues her slumber.

    The following year, in September 1984, another van was driven into the gate of the US Embassy in Beirut and America slept.

    Soon the terrorism spreads to Europe . In April 1985 a bomb explodes in a restaurant frequented by US soldiers in Madrid 

    Then in August 1985 a Volkswagen loaded with explosives is driven into the main gate of the US Air Force Base at Rheine-Main, 22 are killed and the snooze alarm is buzzing louder and louder as US interests are continually attacked.

    Fifty-nine days later in 1985 a cruise ship, the Achille Lauro is hijacked and we watched as an American in a wheelchair is singled out of the passenger list and executed.

    The terrorists then shift their tactics to bombing civilian airliners when they bomb TWA Flight 840 in April of 1986that killed 4 and the most tragic bombing, Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie , Scotland in 1988, killing 259.

    The wake up alarm is getting louder and louder.

    The terrorists decide to bring the fight to America . In January 1993, two CIA agents are shot and killed as they enter CIA headquarters in Langley , Virginia 

    The following month, February 1993 , a group of terrorists are arrested after a rented van packed with explosives is driven into the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City . Six people are killed and over 1000 are injured. Still this is a crime and not an act of war? The Snooze alarm is depressed again.

    Then in November 1995 a car bomb explodes at a US military complex in Riyadh  Saudi Arabia killing seven service men and women.

    A few months later in June of 1996, another truck bomb explodes only 35 yards from the US military compound in Dhahran , Saudi Arabia . It destroys the Khobar Towers , a US Air Force barracks, killing 19 and injuring over 500. The terrorists are getting braver and smarter as they see that America does not respond decisively.

    They move to coordinate their attacks in a simultaneous attack on two US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania .  These attacks were planned with precision. They kill 224. America responds with cruise missile attacks and goes back to sleep.

    The USS Cole was docked in the port of Aden, Yemen for refueling on 12 October 2000 , when a small craft pulled along side the ship and exploded killing 17 US Navy Sailors. Attacking a US War Ship is an act of war, but we sent the FBI to investigate the crime and went back to sleep.

    And of course you know the events of 11 September 2001. Most Americans think this was the first attack against US soil or in America . How wrong they are. America has been under a constant attack since 1979 and we chose to hit the snooze alarm and roll over and go back to sleep.

    In the news lately we have seen lots of finger pointing from every high official in government over what they knew and what they didn't know. But if you've read the papers and paid a little attention I think you can see exactly what they knew. You don't have to be in the FBI or CIA or on the National Security Council to see the pattern that has been developing since 1979.

    I think we have been in a war for the past 25 years and it will continue until we as a people decide enough is enough. America needs to 'Get out of Bed' and act decisively now. America has been changed forever.  We have to be ready to pay the price and make the sacrifice to ensure our way of life continues. We cannot afford to keep hitting the snooze button again and again and roll over and go back to sleep.

    After the attack on Pearl Harbor , Admiral Yamamoto said '... it seems all we have done is awakened a sleeping giant.' This is the message we need to disseminate to terrorists around the world.

    This is not a political thing to be hashed over in an election year, this is an AMERICAN thing. This is about our Freedom and the Freedom of our children in years to come.

    If you believe in this please forward it to as many people as you can especially to the young people and all those who dozed off in history class and who seem so quick to protest such a necessary military action. If you don't believe it, just delete it and go back to sleep.
