Taxing, banning, reusing or simply cutting down on their use — all are solutions up for debate as Vermont environmentalists search for the best solution, and the Legislature is poised to consider bag-tax measures in the upcoming session.

A bill before the House Ways and Means Committee would charge consumers 17 cents for each lightweight plastic bag they take home. State Rep. Johannah Leddy Donovan, D-Burlington, was the lead sponsor among 19 legislators on the bill, which was introduced last session.

“The 17-cent amount seemed significant enough to catch the attention of shoppers,” she said this month. “If we are going to change behavior, we must have a tax that is going to be meaningful.”
A tax that is meaningful? How about a stupid tax for every dumb idea our legislators come up with their tax rate goes up. That should discourage their communist thinking.

An observation from my friend Jimmy

At school we had a paraliturgy and we sang America the Beautiful and it reminded me of the lyrics "God mend thine every flaw" It reminded me of a certain man...Obama

I am proud to call this young man, 12 year old Jimmy, my friend.
Here are the words to America the Beautiful:
America The Beautiful
O, beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain.
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

O, beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassioned stress,
A thoroughfare for freedom beat,
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O, beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more that self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness,
And every gain divine!

O, beautiful for patriot dream,
That sees beyond the years,
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears.
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

prayer request, censorship and the liberal take over of another newspaper

I received the email below from Dawn Slike who feels that her article placed in the section Another Viewpoint in the Lake County News Herald led to the dismissal of Curt Olson the primary editor. Dawn I agree with you, I believe it is for that reason.
I won't and can't mention names but a part time writer for the News Herald told me of another writer leaving because the paper became to liberal and it was hard to do his job fairly.
I had an issue with the News Herald back in 2008 when they refused to publish my Letter to the Editor stating if they did they would have to give equal time to the other side. I always thought in those sections of the paper it was an open forum free from censorship. It would be different if they came and interviewed me maybe then they would have to give equal time. But if someone writes in freely with no coercion or pay and no one from the opposite sides does should a newspaper refuse to print their story?
And more recently concerning my battle with Euclid I most of sent at least 40 letters and emails combined with not one making it to print or the News Herald sending a reporter to investigate my story. Now I am beginning to understand what Curt was up against.
Please keep Curt in your prayers as Dawn requests and also our nation because more and more our freedom of speech is being eroded to nothing.

From Dawn Slike

Dear Friends and Allies,

On behalf of Curt Olson and his family, wife Lynette, two young children and an elderly family member residing with them, I am asking you all for prayers.

Mr. Olson has been fired from The News-Herald, on October 19. He had been in the paper's employ since 1996, and had in recent years served as the paper's editorial page primary editor.

This dismissal occurred exactly five days after the publication (Oct. 14) of my Another Viewpoint, which challenged Family Planning Association of NE Ohio to become a full time prenatal clinic and also exposed them as abortion-pushing "counselors" based on personal testimonies from their former clients. Two days after the publication of this commentary, FPANEO closed on Friday and Saturday, directing people to return for "services" on Monday. It is rare for FPANEO to close on normal business days.

I do not know if there is a connection between my commentary and Mr. Olson's release from the newspaper's staff. I do know I personally find it suspicious.

Mr. Olson will need employment to support his family, so we are calling for prayers that:
Suitable, sufficient God-honoring (truth respecting) employment comes to him
The family is well supported by their community in the interim
The family stays hopeful and prayerful while God moves forward in their lives
God bless you all. God bless every one of us.

- Dawn

If you wish to send a note of support to Mr. Olson, send me an email and I will forward it to him.

chilling speech reversal, something you need to hear

Sorry the first one I sent had a bad link on the speech reversal site
Friends Let me set this clip up for you so you don't think this is hogwash, its about speech reversal. The first time I heard of it was on a Coast to Coast show. A lot of times when you play back someone's words in reverse one of two things could occur, it could confirm what was just said or contradict what was just said and speak the truth. This has happened many times. In this clip listen carefully to President Obama. Its quite chilling and I don't believe is doctored.
For more info on speech reversal go to this site:
There are many more like it, just do the research.

Be wary of this man. I have said it all along.

ps: Also listen to Rachel Madcow, she is incredibly ignorant and is laughing at things she has no clue about. Sad.

Canada's health care

Here is an unedited email from my Canadian cousin born and raised there. I had contacted her to hear exactly her thoughts on socialized medicine. When I spoke out at the health care forum I was right on. Read it for yourself. And as usual, don't sit on this, forward it on to enlighten people.

Hi Carey,
As far as Canada's Universal Health Care System goes......for many years it worked very well. However, as time went by, people, unfortunately began to take advantage of the fact that health care and the medical visits were free. People were going into medical clinics for a paper cut on their finger.....or they would take an appointment just to have their blood pressure checked. Clearly, the doctors were at fault here as well because they would swipe the medicare card of these "patients" thereby charging the government a fee for their very unecessary visit. This, as well as the fact that our doctors are paid substantially less than doctors in the USA because of our universal healthcare plan has caused a mass exodus of our best doctors....most leaving for greener pastures in the USA.
This has been very bad for us, as many of us now have to go to clinics or hospital emergency rooms to be seen for whatever ails us....often sitting and waiting for several hours. It also means that at any given appointment, we never know which doctor will be treating us....there may be up to 6 or 7 GP's in a clinic each working different days and times so you never know who you are going to get. Not very comforting for patients.
The idea of Universal Health Care is a good one ....but with limits. Somewhere between Canada's and France's health care systems is the perfect plan. The USA is a great country and the government should be able to come up with a plan that takes care of it's citizens. Maybe a plan that is comiserate with a family's income level.
Whatever plan the USA decides on...I hope it will be a fair and equitable one for all your citizens.
Let me know your thoughts on this...I would love to see what you wrote.

Take care,

Meet the enemy!!

Meet the enemy!! I knew this way before President Barack Hussein Obama was elected. Unfortunately Pres. Bush Jr. started a lot of misinformation and allowing many Americans to be duped by saying Islam is a religion of peace. Islam is the end time religion, everything comes full circle in life In the beginning of the bible there was wars and conflicts with the Arabs and Israel, we are now heading there again. Christianity will be taking a back seat and very soon.

If you have doubts this may change your mind.

this past election..... personal attack on my character

This past election while some on the right were praising it, I myself was lamenting as I saw only a few sparkles of gold amongst a pan of rubble. Not good.
I don't even hold office but I was ruthlessly blasted by someone running for Euclid council. I even tried helping this candidates campaign and introduced my friend to him which he also spoke ill of. Politics as usual. But it doesn't have to be this way.
Whether you agree with me or not, I rarely or never needlessly attack a persons character. I always write about how things happen, use a persons own words, or write about issues. Even in my battle with Euclid I never spoke ill of the mayor it was about policies. For this candidate to attack my friend who is very knowledgeable and a very decent person is a shame. It shows a complete lack of substance when you resort to name calling, talking bad or making personal attacks on someone.
In the end though my friend and I were vindicated as this candidate lost badly and only garnered 200 votes. Hope he learns his lesson.

ps: A note to my friend,
DON'T GIVE UP! Think of the struggles I have been through in the last year and a half plus, I was even arrested. Get mad, get depressed, hide for a while BUT don't ever give up, thats what the enemy wants you to do. You are a very knowledgeable good person with a lot to offer. I am more than thankful our paths have crossed. Just don't give up!

It is not my job to point fingers or get into a he said and he said situation.From what I understand xxxxx did not say kind things about either you or I . This man is being lead down a wrong path. I do wish him the best ,but I wish that he would wise up and start to use his brain more for himself.I do know that If I run into him or his friend I shall straighten them out for the record. Now you can see why I am leaving politics for a bit.
See you soon my friend;

"Mrs M. i would like to let you know that XXXX XXXXXX of Euclid did not have many kind things to say about Carey or myself very recently . I heard this through a friend of mine. Now you can see how divided Euclid is politically. This is why I am taking a break from politics for a bit"

Careys election review - Gambling

It seems the gambling initiative has passed and Ohio will amend its constitution. How sad to amend any constitution for something like gambling. I have been adamantly opposed to it.

Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.....The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths. Joseph Goebbels Hitlers propaganda minister.

The above statement was very evident while listening to the election returns on 1100 am. I believe the host was Andre Knott, forgive me if I am wrong. He was talking with a guest about issue 3, casino's in Ohio. Andre voted for it and his guest mentioned some of the benefits like the 35,000 jobs it would create. Both chuckled, well we will see if that happens, they will say anything to get it passed. Then they aired the speech from Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cavs, a member of his staff and Mayor Frank Jackson. Mayor Frank Jackson said its not a panacea. So now the truth comes out, 35,000 jobs, maybe, panacea, nope!
The statement that really caught my attention was made by one of Gilbert's staff when he irreverently said And the best thing with it passing, thank God no more Truth Pack ads.
I hope Gilbert's casino goes bankrupt like the one in Detroit.

Maybe some of you don't know this but Dan Gilbert owner of the Cavs was arrested in 1981 for bookmaking. How he was allowed to buy a sports franchise is beyond me. And now he will own a casino. Still think sports aren't fixed?

Now getting back to the propaganda. Its amazing how parrot like people are. Some of the reasons I heard from those who were against gambling in the past but voted for it now were, people are spending their money in other states lets keep it here and it will create jobs, exactly what the ads said. I was always told two wrongs don't make a right and how many more barely above minimum wage jobs do we need and you also have to figure in the jobs that would be lost. How much will the actual gain be?
Another reason I heard, there is already gambling and corruption so whats the big deal? Because there is corruption you want more instead fixing the problems we have? And ask the people who live by casinos if crime went up or down, that's the big deal.

This was the fifth time they tried to get casinos in Ohio. There should be a limit how many times an issue can be placed on the ballot. I feel the same thing will happen with same sex marriage. People get so tired of keeping up the fight, others start buying the lies that eventually an issue gets passed no matter how bad.
The corrupt get richer and your vote helped them do it.


health care forum, my report

I attended the health-care forum Thursday night, October 29, in Painesville, Ohio. First before I give you my take, I would like to thank Councilman Flock for organizing this engaging and informative event on a very important issue facing America. He cordially welcomed everyone and ran the event well.

Senator Sherrod Brown who was suppose to host this town hall meeting did not attend but instead sent Regional Representative Max Blachman to field questions.

Even though I said it was engaging and informative I did not learn much about the health-care plan from Representative Max himself. Instead I learned more listening to the questions from the rather small crowd of only about 35 who attended, almost all were in opposition. It was pointed out to me various reasons for the small attendance. One was lack of promoting the event and the other reason was the area it was held has a lot of welfare and those people don’t care. Something else I heard at the event was they were going to have heightened security because of the opposition to the plan and Conservatives who may show. Really not sure how true any of this is.

I was not at all pleased with the rhetoric or demeanor from R. Rep. Max. Instead of giving real answers he used the term straw argument a few times, attacked profits as one of the reasons for spiraling health care costs, and blamed capitalism. He fast talked over my question and also blamed me as one of the reasons why the costs are out of control and the need for mandatory insurance

My questions were – I am self-employed, barely making it right now, very healthy, I choose not to have health insurance. BUT even if I did want it I can’t afford it and any more government involvement whether taxes or mandatory programs. If I choose not to carry health insurance will I be fined or jailed?

Max said no one will be sent to jail, I never heard that but a possible fine may be included. Well according to one proposal it would include a fine of up to $1,000.00 and up to six months in jail. He went on to say it was people like me who don’t carry health insurance and use the emergency room as primary care. I guess he was alluding to people not paying for the care they received. I was not at all happy when someone else used me as an example for one of the reasons for needing a plan. I confronted Max afterward to set things straight but he didn’t want any explanation.

The thing that upsets me the most is the term they keep using, health care crisis. There is no health care crisis. You can still be treated in a hospital if needed. Max repeatedly used this term. The loudest jeers and boos came when R. Rep. Max blamed capitalism. I don’t remember the exact question but blaming capitalism seems to me that he has socialist leanings and this is a socialist plan. Is capitalism perfect no but it has given us the highest standard of living and is still far better than socialism. He also attacked profits as if they are evil.

I was quite vocal when R. Rep. Max said the figure of 42 million for people who don’t have any health insurance. I spoke out of turn and asked loudly what is the real number, President Obama said 42 million then dropped it to 36 million and I have heard numbers as high as 47 million? Does this number include illegal aliens? R. Rep. Max responded those illegals are a straw argument; there is only 6 million in this country. 6 million people receiving care from your money is not a straw argument. That’s where you need to start, who is covered in this plan?

Questions were raised whether abortion would be covered and if you can keep you existing coverage. To be honest with you, I don’t remember the answers to those. By this time I was turned off by Max’s answer to the illegal alien question and him turning the tables on me as if I was the problem. As I said I learned more from the questions asked rather than the answers given of this enormous bill that I am pretty sure even R. Rep. Max hasn’t completely read because most of what was asked was answered with, no the plan doesn’t have that.


Side notes:

*It’s amazing how you can have two opposing views to an issue. A person spoke up and said they know people who go to Canada for medicine and universal healthcare is working for Canada. To that I shouted I have family living in Canada and she is not at all happy with their system. Someone else gave me the thumbs up and said I agree with you, I also have family living up there and they are not happy.

**When I confronted R. Rep. Max afterwards I asked him again about the fine and or jail time, he replied no jail time but there would be some incentive to make you get it.

***I also tried to set him and said I own three houses, have paid property and income tax, he cut me off and said property tax doesn’t pay for health care. The point I was trying to make is, I am a citizen born here and have paid taxes for years, if someone should be covered or use the emergency room then it should be someone as myself not an illegal.

**** A veteran brought to my attention that there was no pledge of allegiance and no recognition of the vets serving.
******This is the email I received informing me of this event:

On Wednesday, October 28, 2009 Posted in the Northeast Ohio News-Herald on page A3 was written in a SMALL area, about the size of a United States postage stamp…..Our Representative Sen. Sherrod Brown (D) is hosting a town hall meeting on Thursday night in Painesville at 7:00 p.m. Sherrod Brown will discuss the Health-care Reform Act at Elm Street Elementary School, 585 Elm St.
What is hilarious about this is...the article is so small that my thumb would cover it up. Do you think he really wants anyone to know about it? What's he afraid of? Why was this posted 1 day before the actual town hall meeting?

PS: I didn't even touch on the cost of Universal Health Care, America can not afford any more debt!!!!
