When did the authority of NATO, United Nations, the Arab League, and the International Community, aka: New World Order, supersede our Congress and our Constitution? The UN authorized a humanitarian mission and establishment of a no-fly zone. The UN did not authorize support of rebels to over throw a government. How quickly this changed to armed engagement in civil war. What Obama said: 1.) "I made it clear that Gaddafi had lost the confidence of his people and the legitimacy to lead, and I said that he needed to step down from power." 2.) "broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake." 3.) "We will deny the regime arms, cut off it's supply of cash, assist the opposition, and work with other nations to hasten the day when Gaddafi leaves power." What Obama really meant: He must step down. We are working to drive him from power. But we are not pursuing regime change. Present! So, how's that "hope and change" workin for ya!?!

Geraldine Ferraro was a ground-breaking American who never forgot her working-class, Italian-immigrant roots. Geraldine will forever be remembered as a trailblazer who broke down barriers for woman, and Americans of all backgrounds and walks of life! Looking back on the 2008 election, Ms. Ferraro stated: "If Obama was a white man," he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman of color, he would not be in this position. He just happens to be very lucky to be who he is. "Boy, did she call that one right!" Ave vale, Geraldine Ferraro. You were one of America's best. What an unforgettable historic moment you gave us. For feminism, and for women's rights in the United States. May the day come that Americans will vote for a woman as bright and caring as you were to serve as the first woman president of the United States. Arrivederci, Geraldine, e bouna nottel!

VOTING 101....

We think this is one of the most important elections this city has ever had because of the debt we are in and the direction we are headed.

Voting is a responsibility that every citizen should take seriously. That's why it's important for citizens to vote in the May 3rd primary election.

Everyone wants their voice to be heard and their opinion to count. The only way to do this is to vote and vote smart!

1.) Don't vote for the party, vote for the person.

2.) Study each candidate running for office.

3.) Look at incumbents voting record. They can say anything they want to say, but their voting record shows if they are backing it up with their actions.

4.) Find a candidate worth voting for, not against.

5.) It IS perfectly acceptable to refuse to give your vote to any candidate if you believe NONE are acceptable.

6.) Don't vote merely for the sake of voting, or blindly mark your party, because an uninformed vote is worse than NOT voting.

The big picture. There is a common tendency to vote for the candidate we like the best or the one who will help you the most, or the smoothest talker.

Instead, think about all of the people that will be affected by the candidate that gets elected to this office.

Vote Jeff Gahan on May 3rd, he will clean house downtown!

So who paid for that AD in the Tribune today (March 20, 2011) where Doug England congratulated some local college players - but used Stumler's campaign slogan..."Making It Happen?"

Freedom Of Speech would like to thank one fantastic reader for staying on top of England's free plug for Stumler!

Hey Irv, with all your big bucks can't you afford to buy some advertisment without having us taxpayers foot your AD too?

We are coming to the conclusion that Obama is not as smart as everyone has said. While he is good at campaigning and giving speeches (so long as the teleprompter is working) and he is good at inciting union protests (Wisconsin) he doesn't seem to be smart enough to actually perform the job he was hired to do.

Is the deficit lower since he took office? No! Is the country more secure since he took office? No! Are prices lower on just about everything since he took office? No! Are we more respected by the world community since he took office? No!

Really, can someone send him an email on his blackberry? Oh and someone might let him know we've been invaded by Mexico and there are as many Americans dying from the acts of illegals as in the war.

Come to think of it are there any criteria in which the country is better than when he took office?

Is this the record of a smart man?

Democrats are acting as if Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's demand that public sector employees give up collective bargaining would have George Washington rolling in his grave (a clear violations of Gravediggers Local 803 regulations concerning the rolling of the dead).

Government unions have nothing in common with private sector unions because they don't have hostile management on the other side of the bargaining table. To the contrary, the "bosses" of government employees are co-conspirators with them in bilking the taxpayers.

Far from being careful stewards of the taxpayers money, some politicians are on the same side of the bargaining table as government employees -- against the taxpayers who aren't allowed to be part of the negotiation.

Some politicians don't think of themselves as "management." they don't respond to union demands for more money by saying "Are you kidding me?"

They say, "Great -- get me a raise too!"

Some politicians, including local politicians buy the votes of government workers with generous pay packages and benefits -- paid for by taxpayers money -- and then expect a kickback from the unions in the form of hefty campaign donations, rent-a-mob and questionable union political activity when the run for re-election.

Sound familiar?

The unions must be desperately hoping that no one will notice...Wait a minute!

We're talking about government employees! This isn't the Discovery Channel's "Dirty Jobs" -- it's hey folks, we're broke and the taxpayers can't afford you anymore!

Sound familiar?

Today is black Friday for the 1,600 employees in Wisconsin.

We say, you did it to yourselves and we only wish we had Governor Scott Walker, as Mayor of New Albany!
