Don’t look now, but I think Gov. Perry with his support for this Amendment, just met the new DHS definition of a ‘Radical’. He seems to support states rights! SHOCKAH!!

Update: American Legion Responds…The Criminalization of Politics and Free Expression Has Begun…..

MM has the response to the DHS report from the American Legion, which objects to the characterization of veterans as potential radicals…

…In spite of this incomplete, and, I fear, politically-biased report, The American Legion and the Department of Homeland Security share many common and crucial interests, such as the Citizen Corps and disaster preparedness. Since you are a graduate of New Mexico Girls State, I trust that you are very familiar with The American Legion. I would be happy to meet with you at a time of mutual convenience to discuss issues such as border security and the war on terrorism. I think it is important for all of us to remember that Americans are not the enemy. The terrorists are….

From AceHQ and MM:

The report, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”, was made available April 7 and then posted by the Liberty Papers.

DHS tends to paint with a rather broad brush. From pages 3 and 4:

Rightwing extremists are harnessing this historical election as a recruitment tool. Many rightwing extremists are antagonistic toward the new presidential administration and its perceived stance on a range of issues, including immigration and citizenship, the expansion of social programs to minorities, and restrictions on firearms ownership and use. Rightwing extremists are increasingly galvanized by these concerns and leverage them as drivers for recruitment. From the 2008 election timeframe to the present, rightwing extremists have capitalized on related racial and political prejudices in expanded propaganda campaigns, thereby reaching out to a wider audience of potential sympathizers.

Try to attend a Tea Party tomorrow, the more Free Expression the better, the sooner the better. All politics ARE ultimately local and the pols will remember they need to be re elected when they see their constituents speaking out against out of control spending…our Constitution protects ALL of our free expression not just ACORN, despite how the new Administration seems to want to reframe us..

Remember the Alinsky method, pick a target, frame it, freeze it. We and our freedom seem to be the target, Guess we are easier to demonize than terrorists for these JUST WORDS tools….

Where are the headbangers? get out to a tea party! where are the. peeps I grew up with in the 80s? Get out to a tea party, Be counted FOR something before you are just a number to the Tax Man and the Acorn nuts both….bring your Boom Box to the Tea Party and get your FREEDOM GROOVE ON!!!!

You know what we need? We need a Jeff Foxworthy-esque video of “You Might Be a Right Wing Radical if”…if you believe in freedom of speech, if you go to Church on Sunday and don’t curse in the sermon, if you believe in the Second Amendment, if you support capitalism, .the possibilities are endless…

what a bunch of maroons we have in DC..scary maroons….in the primaries this was the Race Card they played against fellow Democrats, now it is the Radical Card being played against any American AUDACIOUS enough to freely express their views, sadly now the tools who called us racist and are now calling us radicals actually have jobs in this Administration and apparently no adults who have read and support our Constitution are around to restrain their Alinksy techniques..

Market Mover Tuesday: Retail Sales Fall Unexpectedly…PPI also drops…

It is unexpected b/c apparently economists still do not actually go into stores to get an idea of what is happening on the street…

Vodpod videos no longer available.


Sales of  U.S. retailers fell in March, snapping two months of increases, a government report showed Tuesday, indicating the recession was far from hitting bottom as mounting unemployment depress consumer spending.

The Commerce Department said total retail sales dropped 1.1 percent after rising a revised 0.3 percent in February. March sales were weighed down by declining purchases for big-ticket items like motor vehicles and electronic goods.

But if you take out auto sales, retail STILL  dropped .09%….

Excluding motor vehicles and parts, sales fell 0.9 percent in March, compared to a 1 percent gain the prior month.


A separate report from the Labor Department showed U.S. producer prices fell in March and also recorded their largest year-over-year decline since 1950 as subdued demand makes it hard for producers to raise prices….

Compared with the same period last year, producer prices were 3.5 percent lower, the largest decline since a 3.9 percent fall in 1950, the department said.

IOW It ain’t over til it’s over, and it ain’t over…
