"anyone caught frittering away the taxpayers' money working on a nonexistent law is guilty of fraud"

Memo to Each HHS Employee Working on Implementing Obamacare: How Would '10 Years in Federal Prison for Violating 18 USC 641' Sound On Your Resume?
Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell is asking his attorney general to advise him on whether implementing the federal health care overhaul would put Parnell in violation of his oath of office.... Parnell is doing the right thing, according to Mark Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation. Levin points to 18 USC 641... Those who excuse the government's behavior by pointing to the fact that Judge Vinson did not issue an injunction would do well to read the actual decision.... There was no need for an injunction: the entire law is dust. Kaput. Bupkis. Nada. Dead.

And, wonder of wonders, even The New York Times published an erudite letter-to-the-editor describing the malfeasance necessary for the government to claim penultimate power over the individual by ladling non-existent federal powers into the Commerce Clause....

The Right needs better grassroots infrastructure

The Right needs better grassroots infrastructure The Daily Caller
...(T)he Left has monetized its activists and educated them to take sophisticated action on a given issue at the drop of a hat. The Right buys ineffective TV ads, builds “coalitions” and has no sustainable structure to show for the many millions it has invested. This misdirection of critical resources in the face of markedly changing dynamics cannot be highlighted enough....

There are reasons to be optimistic. The state think tanks do excellent work geared toward policy education specifically aimed at local officials and legislators. Groups such as the, headed by the visionary Dr. Rod Martin, have emerged to challenge MoveOn as a genuinely potent platform for center-right e-activism and fundraising. The Right has even found Facebook and Twitter to be effective tools for communication and organization. Ultimately, however, these favorable indicators must be rolled into a new way of doing business that takes a longer view toward building a permanent political structure that can match and spar with the Left; not consultant-loaded campaigns that disband the first Wednesday in November. This requires coordination, vision and integration, and there is no time to waste.

What can WE do?

Remember the Golden Rule

Remember the Golden Rule: Humboldt County veterans working to restore historical peace boat - Times Standard

A 30-foot wooden boat rests in a boat yard at the edge of Fairhaven. Planks of wood are missing from its hull -- some torn out by rough waters, others carefully removed by the hands of men who see the small vessel as a symbol of peace and activism.

These men, members from local chapters of Veterans for Peace, gathered on a cold January day to work on the restoration of the Golden Rule, a boat that tried to sail into nuclear testing waters to protest militarism during the Cold War....

Israel shocked by Obama's "betrayal" of Mubarak reuters
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told ministers of the Jewish state to make no comment on the political cliffhanger in Cairo, to avoid inflaming an already explosive situation. But Israel's President Shimon Peres is not a minister.

"We always have had and still have great respect for President Mubarak," he said on Monday. He then switched to the past tense. "I don't say everything that he did was right, but he did one thing which all of us are thankful to him for: he kept the peace in the Middle East."

The Symbolism of ELEPHANTS

The main characteristics of the elephant are his strength and steadfastness. Therefore it become a symbol of physical and mental strength, as well as responsibility and earthiness.

In Indian mythology... white elephants are considered very special... elephants were considered to bring good luck and prosperity...

In buddhism the elephant is a symbol of mental strength. At the beginning of one's practice the uncontrolled mind is symbolised by a gray elephant who can run wild any moment and destroy everything on his way. After practising dharma and taming one's mind, the mind which is now brought under control is symbolised by a white elephant strong and powerful, who can be directed wherever one wishes and destroy all the obstacles on his way.
Symbolism of Animals in Buddhism

In Buddhism, White is representative of the principles of purity, as in Western Culture, but it is also considered the colour of knowledge and longevity. It is consider a colour of extremes, associated with the cold of snow and the smelting of metal. White is associated with the Buddha Vairocana. According to Buddhist legend, Buddha's mother, Maya, dreamt of a white elephant touching her right side before Buddha was born. Elephants, associate with rain clouds and fertility, are seen as good fortune, and following that the elephant was white meant purity and learnedness for the child. Because of this dream, seeing a white elephants spells remarkable fortune, which holds truth whether in reference to mysticism or not, as they are quite rare. The white elephant is thought to be Buddha descended from the heavens.Colors of Religion: Buddhism (info and image source)
